If I Would Have Known

His tight hug and the passionate kiss reminded her of ages ago — a time when they had just gotten married.

“Hurry! You need to catch your plane.” she said as her left hand on his chest gave him a gentle push away from her.

“So you don’t want another kiss from me, huh?” he smiled, turned around and walked away, holding up his right arm, waving goodbye.

She gasped for air and wobbled. If I would have known —  she thought as the coffin was going into ground.

Then what?

If you would know that two days from now the earth would come to an end, would you do things differently today? Tomorrow? The last day? Why? Whatever you would plan on doing or not doing, I’m sure you definitely would double-check and perhaps change your priorities — that is, if you would know what is going to happen.

As I’m writing this post, it is Thursday, September 21st, 2017 — two days before the world supposedly will come to an end. You are reading this post on Monday, September 25th, 2017 or afterwards — so the world has not come to an end (yet).

These false prophesies leave their marks on many people. I often wonder why people long to hear more exact predictions about the time and hour of the end. Doesn’t it say in Matthew 25:13 that we do not know neither the day nor the hour?

See, if we would know we would act, do, say things differently, wouldn’t we? But, say, does it always need a catastrophe (either a predictable or an unpredictable one) for us to think things over and to change?

We should live each day and hour as it would be our last — not irresponsibly and for our own pleasure, but as it says in God’s Word:

Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. 

1 Thessalonians 5:6 (ESV)

Here is an interesting article written by Jonathan Sarfati of CMI called Will the world end on 23 September?
