TAKEN AWAY - By Win Johnson

Scripture Reading: Matthew 24:37-42

In Matthew 24:37-42, we are told that conditions on the earth prior to the Lord's coming will be similar to those inNoah's day. The record in Genesis 6:5-7 states that "the thoughts of men's hearts were only evil continually" and "God repented that He had made man." An honest appraisal of present day morals must conclude that we are fast heading in the same direction.

To the Lord's people, however, it is a comforting thought that when evil has reached it's zenith, God always calls a halt. It was so in Noah's day. While the multitude of people were "eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage," completely indifferent to their eternal welfare, suddenly the flood came and "took them all away." Only Noah and his family were spared because they had entered the ark. Those who were "taken" died in the flood.

"So shall the coming of the Son of Man be" said the Lord Jesus Christ." Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken and the other left. Two women shall be grinding at the mill, the one shall be taken and the other left."Taken where? Not to Heaven, as is sometimes taught, but into udgment. The one who is left will go into the millennial kingdom which Christ will have come to establish.

To God's people in this age, the Apostle Paul, by revelation, tells of a secret coming of Christ (I Thessalonians 4:13-18; I Corinthians 15:51, 52). Then, instead of being "taken away," members of the Body of Christ will be "caught up" to meet the Lord in the air and "so shall we ever be with the Lord." How wonderful to haw this blessed hope of being "caught up" and not "taken away"! It can be yours in Christ.

How God Saves Men
Believing Christ DIED, that’s HISTORY.
Believing Christ DIED for YOU SINS and Rose again that’s SALVATION.
Read Romans 1:16, Romans 10:9-10 and 1. Corinthians 15:1-4
