2 Peter 3:1-4

Beloved, I now write to you this second epistle (in both of which I stir up your pure minds by way of reminder), that you 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 Savior, knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, 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 creation."

Sometimes I want to laugh out loud when it comes to the naysayers regarding the timeliness of the second coming of our Lord. First, it is not ours to judge when Jesus will return for His own. He said that even He does not know, only the Father does. Secondly, we are commanded to be ever vigilant and ready. Therefore, I/we are all to live as if the trumpets will sound tomorrow, to be ever ready.
