A NOTE to Scoffers


Matthew 24:37-39 

King James Version

37 But as the days of Noah were, 

so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

38 For as in the days that were before the flood 

they were eating and drinking, 

marrying and giving in marriage, 

until the day that Noe entered into the ark,

39 And knew not until the flood came, 

and took them all away; 

so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

Who are scoffers?

The Bible has much to say about them.

Scoffers, skeptics, sin-filled people.

All pretty much in the same sinking boat.

Why do they scoff at believers of JESUS?

Why don't they believe in the Rapture?

Why don't they believe Jesus can return at any time God chooses?

Apostle Peter says it pretty much here:

2 Peter 3:3-4

King James Version 

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.

2 Peter 3:5-7

King James Version 

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.

2 Peter 3:10

King James Version 

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.

2 Peter 3:11-12

King James Version 

11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, 

what manner of persons ought ye to be 

in all holy conversation and godliness,

12 Looking for and hasting 

unto the coming of the day of God, 

wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, 

and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?

2 Peter 3:15-16

King James Version 

15 And account that the longsuffering of our Lord 

is salvation; 

even as our beloved brother Paul 

also according to the wisdom given unto him 

hath written unto you;

16 As also in all his epistles, 

speaking in them of these things; 

in which are some things hard to be understood, 

which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, 

as they do also the other scriptures, 

unto their own destruction.

We all need to be ready, for the Lord can come any moment GOD chooses, gathering His faithful up in the clouds.

2 Peter 3:13-14

King James Version

13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, 

look for new heavens and a new earth, 

wherein dwelleth righteousness.

14 Wherefore, beloved, 

seeing that ye look for such things, 

be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, 

without spot, and blameless.

2 Peter 3:17-18

King James Version 

17 Ye therefore, beloved, 

seeing ye know these things before, 

beware lest ye also, 

being led away with the error of the wicked, 

fall from your own stedfastness.

18 But grow in grace, 

and in the knowledge 

of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. 

To him be glory both now and for ever


Are you a believer in the LORD JESUS?

When will you start believing?

When your heart is true,

the Holy Spirit will be with you.

Being a believer means  GOD will send His Holy Spirit to teach you everything about Jesus -- His life, ministry, and the imminent end times.

Being a believer means you are born again.

Being a believer means you accept Scripture as TRUTH.

John 3:5-8 

King James Version

5 Jesus answered, 

Verily, verily, I say unto thee, 

Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, 

he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; 

and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

7 Marvel not that I said unto thee

Ye must be born again.

8 The wind bloweth where it listeth, 

and thou hearest the sound thereof, 

but canst not tell whence it cometh, 

and whither it goeth: 

so is every one that is born of the Spirit.

Being a believer means we love, as JESUS taught us to.

Matthew 22:37-40 

King James Version

37 Jesus said unto him, 

Thou shalt love the Lord thy God 

with all thy heart, 

and with all thy soul, 

and with all thy mind.

38 This is the first and great commandment.

39 And the second is like unto it, 

Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

40 On these two commandments hang 

all the law and the prophets.

Being a believer means we repent.

Matthew 4:17 

King James Version

17 From that time 

Jesus began to preach, 

and to say


for the kingdom of heaven 

is at hand.

JESUS, the prophets, and the apostles, gave us all the instructions we need to be saved.

The Bible is almost one-third prophecy.

How many care to listen?

JESUS rightfully wondered:

Luke 18:8 

King James Version

8 I tell you that he will avenge them speedily

Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, 

shall he find faith on the earth?
