The Second Coming
As a young boy, I remember thinking, when the year 2000 rolls around,
I'll be an old man-I'll be 40! Back then the new millennium seemed
like the bright stars on a clear night, distant and unreachable.
Well, I'm an old man of 40 now, and I've got to be honest with you,
the year 2000 seems like, well, just another new year. I tried to get excited
about the whole Y2K thing, but never could. I don't have thousands of dollars
of freeze-dried tomatoes or a huge water supply in my basement. I spent
a few dollars on software fixes for my computers, because they are relatively
new, they were easy to repair.
Some doomsayers prophesied the cataclysmic end of the world with the
end of the millennium. They never really got my attention. I guess I've
gotten cynical in my old age, but I just don't see it happening.
Is it just me? Or has the whole thing been over done.
OK, I'm going to do some common sense stuff. I'll make sure our "earthquake
kit" is fully stocked. There will be water, some nonperishable, (but
not freeze-dried) food, a flashlight, radio and fresh batteries. I'll have
a full tank of gasoline in the car and a little cash on hand, but as far
as I'm concerned, Dec. 31, 1999 is a day like any other day, and I plan
on conducting business as usual, how about you?
"And the world will be as it was in the days of Lot. People went
about their daily business--eating and drinking, buying and selling, farming
and building--  until the morning Lot left Sodom. Then fire and burning
sulfur rained down from heaven and destroyed them all.  Yes, it will
be 'business as usual' right up to the hour when the Son of Man returns."
Luke 17:28-30 NLT
