Five Minutes with God

Five Minutes with God is a distinct and exciting approach to daily Bible devotionals. Instead of a lofty goal of going through the entire Bible—or even the New Testament—in one year, Five Minutes with God focuses on shorter passages so that the reader can absorb more of the text and apply it to everyday life. This daily podcast will step you through the Gospel accounts of the life of Christ. Each day’s podcast also ends with a thought for further reflection and a call to prayer. By reading, reflecting, and praying, Five Minutes with God will help you come to know Him, love Him, and follow Him like never before.

“But the exact day and hour? No one knows that, not even heaven’s angels, not even the Son. Only the Father knows. “The Arrival of the Son of Man will take place in times like Noah’s. Before the great flood everyone was carrying on as usual, having a good time right up to the day Noah boarded the ark. They knew nothing—until the flood hit and swept everything away. “The Son of Man’s Arrival will be like that: Two men will be working in the field—one will be taken, one left behind; two women will be grinding at the mill—one will be taken, one left behind. So stay awake, alert. You have no idea what day your Master will show up. But you do know this: You know that if the homeowner had known what time of night the burglar would arrive, he would have been there with his dogs to prevent the break-in. Be vigilant just like that. You have no idea when the Son of Man is going to show up.

When will the Lord return? For centuries, men have searched for the answer to this question. Many have theorized, some have predicted, but none have been successful. Jesus clearly teaches that the time of His return is appointed by the Father and is only known to Him. There will be no signs or precursors. Until that day, the world will continue to function, and life will go on as it always has. People will work, rest, play, and carry on relationships. All will be as normal until the moment when Jesus returns to judge the world and to deliver His church up to the Father. So considering the unknown time of Jesus’ return, what is His advice? “Stay awake” and “be ready.” To “stay awake” simply means to be aware and conscious of the possibility of His return at any moment. Don’t be caught off-guard. To “be ready” means just what it says—to constantly be in a state of preparedness to meet the Lord. We may not know when the Lord is going to return, but we have certainly been told how to be prepared for that great event. May God help us all to watch and be ready!

Why do you think God has not told us when His Son would return?

Don’t forget to pray and have a great day!
