Blessings of Remembering The Big Picture

…in the last days scoffers will come,

mocking the truth and following their own desires.

They will say,

“What happened to the promise that Jesus is coming again?

From before the times of our ancestors,

everything has remained the same

since the world was first created.”

They deliberately forget 

that God made the heavens long ago 

by the word of his command,

and he brought the earth out from the water 

and surrounded it with water.

Then he used the water to destroy the ancient world

with a mighty flood.

And by the same word,

the present heavens and earth have been stored up for fire.

They are being kept for the day of judgment,

when ungodly people will be destroyed. 

2 Peter 3:3-7
