“All of a Sudden!”

Lou Yeboah

By: Lou Yeboah

Unexpectedly, without warning, without notice, sudden destruction comes. [I Thessalonians 5:3]. I hear the prophets crying out, “She was plucked up in fury, she was cast down to the ground, and the east wind dried up her fruit: her strong rods were broken and withered; the fire consumed them.” [Ezekiel 19:12].

 “Yea, I will gather you, and blow upon you in the fire of my wrath, and ye shall be melted in the midst of the furnace; and ye shall know that I the Lord have poured out my fury upon you.” [Ezekiel 22:20-22].

Please don’t take these words lightly. If you believe the Bible to be true, then what Paul wrote will come to pass. Just as it was in the days of Noah, so will it be in the days of the Son of Man. “Likewise, as it was also in the days of Lot: [Luke 17:26-30]. Suddenly, it will be at the door. An awful and terrifying experience of a fury and power that knows no mercy – A fury and power that gives no warning, offers no second chances and is without escape! [Matthew 24:21-22; Luke 21:34-35; Isaiah 30:13].

But the great majority of people in this world have no clue, no concept of the devastating destruction that will soon be affecting this entire earth, what God calls the “Day of the Lord.”  

Listen, God has given us many examples in the Bible to warn us that He does not excuse, tolerate, or put up with sin. He punishes those who reject Him, hate Him, or ignore Him, whether it’s individuals, families, cities, countries, or the whole world. [Psalms 98:9]. The only difference from the old is that this time it will not be a flood, but fire. 

I tell you, in the not-too-distant future, all people living on earth will see the skies suddenly become dark – this is the sign of the end of this age, the sign right before the day of the Lord. [Acts 2:20]. Then the first trumpet will blast, signaling that God’s wrath has begun on earth. [Revelation 8:1-7]. 

“The day of the Lord is near…” [Zephaniah 1.7, 14].

“Woe, Woe, Woe to those who dwell on the earth.” [Revelation 8:13].

I tell you, the time when you can be saved is almost gone! The voice of mercy is growing weaker and weaker, while the voice of judgment is growing louder and louder. Don’t wait until its too late! “Once the owner of the house gets up and closes the door, you will stand outside knocking and pleading, ‘Sir, open the door for us.’ “But he will answer, ‘I don’t know you or where you come from.” [Luke 13:25].

Times of intensity are on the way. Do not wait! Do not postpone the matter any longer! “Seek ye the Lord while he may be found; call ye upon him while he is near” [Isaiah 55:6]. 

You have waited and lingered still refusing the Savior, all His warnings so patient, all His pleadings so kind; Thus, you ate fruit forbidden, you believed Satan’s promise; Thus, your heart has been hardened, sin has darkened your mind. Then how sad facing judgment, you’ll recall with no mercy that you tarried and lingered till the Spirit was gone; What reproaches and mourning, if when death finds you hopeless. You have tarried and lingered and have waited too long. “[If You Linger Too Long” by Dr. John R. Rice, 1895-1980].

Oh, how will they scoff and laugh at this message?
