Have you ever been robbed?

If so, how did it make you feel? Were the robbers caught? Did you learn why they did it and why they selected you to steal from?

According to the November 3rd issue of the Wichita Eagle, in an article written by Stan Finger, “Someone broke into the Kansas Sports Hall of Fame at the Wichita Boathouse on Halloween night and stole a replica of the America’s Cup trophy, along with two footballs honoring the legendary Gale Sayers…

“The replica of the trophy won by Bill Koch in 1992 is worth an estimated $50,000, said Lt. Barry VonFange, head of the burglary section of the Wichita Police Department.

“The two Sayers footballs date back to his days at the University of Kansas and are worth about $500 apiece.”

Now no one knows when a thief is going to come in, but it is usually when a home or business owner least expects it. Few people are ever prepared for it.

Scriptures says that the day of the Lord is going to come as a thief in the night.

When Christ returns, He will come like a thief to unbelievers and to believers who are not prepared for His coming.

To the faithful believers, He will be coming, not as a thief in the night, but as the King of glory. Although the faithful will not know when He will return, they will be ready and be aware of the signs of the times. They are ever watchful for His coming.

According to www.solagroup.org, “He shall come as a judge, unexpectedly, at an unknown and unlooked for hour…Christ comes to the church as the Morning Star, to Israel as the Sun of Righteousness, and to the world and religious profession in sudden surprise as a ‘thief in the night.'”

So the questions are: “Are you expecting Him? Are you ready for Him? And are you aware of the events that will happen just prior to His return?

“Or will He indeed come to you as a thief in the night?”

“For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.” (1 Thessalonians 5:2 KJV)
