What will the world be doing when Christ comes?


"But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were
before the Flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah
entered into the ark, and knew not until the Flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming
of the Son of man be." Verses 37-39. "Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank,
they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; but the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire
and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is
revealed." Luke 17: 28-30.
NOTE-The idea is, not that it is wrong in itself to eat, drink, marry, buy, sell, plant, or build, but
that men's minds will be so taken up with these things that they will give little or no thought to the future
life, and make no plans or preparation to meet Jesus when He comes.
