A DANGEROUS GAME
But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven,
nor the Son, but the Father alone.
For the coming of the Son of Man will be just like the days of Noah.
For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking,
marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark,
and they did not understand until the flood came and took them all away;
so will the coming of the Son of Man be.
Russian roulette is a potentially fatal game of chance in which a fool places a single bullet in a revolver, spins the cylinder, places the pistol against their head, and pulls the trigger. Although the apparent intent of this risky act is to live, Russian roulette is considered to be suicide.
Are we not playing Russian roulette too? Doing our thang? Laying and playing? Chances are Jesus ain’t coming back tonite, right? Do we not see the signs of Christ ‘s return?

"And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold" (Matthew 24:12).
"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power" (2 Timothy 3:1–5).
"And there will be famines." Matthew 24:7
"earthquakes in various places" (Mark 13:8; Matthew 24:7)
"And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many” (Matthew 24:7)
We can go on, but that’s already six bullets.
For you yourselves know full well
that the day of the Lord will come just like a thief in the night.
