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.

Do you believe Jesus can come any time?

That the dead, and His believers will meet Him up in the clouds at any time God chooses?

Do you believe in God, at all?

Do you believe in the gospel of Jesus Christ?

Who are scoffers?

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

Apostle Peter says it pretty much here:

2 Peter 3 

King James Version 

3 This second epistle, 


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.

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?

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.

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.

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


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

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.

And God will send His Holy Spirit to teach you everything about Jesus, His life, ministry, and the imminent end times.

You will know what Jesus asks of us right now. 

Jesus commands us to be born again.

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.

He commands us to love.

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.

He commands us to 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 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?
