The Coming Big Bang (The Real Big Bang)


The Holy Bible, 2nd Peter 3:1-10____

(1) This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance: (2) That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour: (3) Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, (4) And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. (5) For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: (6) Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: (7) But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.

(8) But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. (9) The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. (10) But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

The message is simple. God will not put up with sin. Nevertheless, the Lord loves you and wants you to be saved from the coming judgment. Therefore, the Lord is waiting. BUT, the Lord will not wait forever--he "is not slack." Judgment will come, and unexpected, "as a thief in the night."  This will not be a judgment by water, as the Lord judged the world some 4,400 years ago with the global flood. This will be a fire judgment of such thoroughness that even the elements will be melted. In this coming judgment "the heavens shall pass away with a great noise"--A BIG BANG, if you please.
