Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect. Matthew 24:44
Recommended Reading 2 Peter 3:1-13
"Second Coming Type" is the largest type size that will fit in a newspaper's headline, reserved for earthshaking events. In Are We Living in the End Times? Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins explain how "Second Coming Type" got its name: "The reason, of course, is that there IS no bigger event than the second coming of Christ . . . . Ironically, when He comes, Second Coming Type will sit unused on the presses. Why? Because there will be no time to put out a flash edition to announce His return."
That's right - the return of Christ will happen suddenly at an unexpected hour. Only those who are living in light of the promise of His return will be ready. Unfortunately, many today are living casually and cavalierly, assuming there is plenty of time to "get ready." But just as Noah's neighbors had years to prepare for the Flood, but didn't, so many will find themselves unprepared for the appearance of Jesus when He comes. Take Jesus' words to heart: He is coming at an unexpected hour. Live a Second Coming-type of life.
The times you least expect Jesus might return are examples of the times He is most likely to return. Be ready!
In our modern world, our real danger comes not from irreligion, but from mild religion. D. Elton Trueblood
