A Day is A Thousand Years
(From 1st/2nd Peter)
God has commanded the present heavens and earth to remain until the day of judgment.
Then they will be set on fire, and ungodly people to destruction sent.
For to God, one day is as a thousand years – a key to what the prophets meant.
The Lord is not slow to keep his promises, he wants all to be saved and repent.
The day of the Lord’s return will surprise like a thief – immediate and terse.
The heavens will disappear with a great noise of heresy, heat melting the whole universe.
Every debt of the earth will be revealed – foreclosed – and debtors taken in the hearse.
To be burned as chaff in the fires of the furnace – the earned and un-repented curse.
So you should serve and honor God: live your life not as the dead but in Christ alive.
Look forward to the day when God judges everyone, and try to make it arrive.
For the heavens will be destroyed and into the hot depths of Hell all the earth will dive.
But God has promised us a new heaven and a new earth where justice will always thrive.
