Like the five virgins that were ready by keeping their oil lamp burning continually, we all need to be ready everyday. The other five virgins only brought enough oil for a time they were sure He would come, but they didn't have it for a time that they didn't think He would come.
Like the parable of the good servant in Luke 12, He was found ready at the second, third and fourth watch of the night. He was ready.. EVEN at an hour He did not think his master would come.
39And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through. 40Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not.
No one knows when, but the whole world will be watching (even the wicked servants) during a major disaster.. but no one will be watching when life is normal and goes on like nothing is happening. That is the time that counts.. we must be ready even when we do not think He will come.
Jesus talks about it in Matthew 24 (also Luke 21:9-11)
6And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
7For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
8All these are the beginning of sorrows.
There will be wars, rumors of wars, famines, earthquakes, pestilences.. even tsunamis, but the end is not yet. These are just the sorrows that this world has to face.
The Bible also tells us that it will be like the days of Noah and Lot when the Son of Man comes. This is very important to understand-
"And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed." Luke 17:26-30
During the days of Lot and Noah, everyone was busy with their lives. Life was normal and life went on. They ate, drank, built houses and were given away in marriage... then disaster struck without warning and destroyed them all in one day. God works in a pattern throughout the Bible. He always came without warning and when they least expected it.
Luke 17 is important also-
22And he said unto the disciples, The days will come, when ye shall desire to see one of the days of the Son of man, and ye shall not see it.
23And they shall say to you, See here; or, see there: go not after them, nor follow them.
24For as the lightning, that lighteneth out of the one part under heaven, shineth unto the other part under heaven; so shall also the Son of man be in his day.
Sometimes we can get caught up on signs, and we're warning the world that Christ is coming back during every major disaster.. and that has been going on for centuries. We follow the news, follow Youtube videos, books, and words of men saying they are so convinced Christ is at the door.. but the Bible never said it was by natural disasters, wars, or unfortunate events that He will come.. but that He will come as a thief.. which is very quietly, subtly, in the calm of the night when no one is stirring. Our job is to watch and be ready for that sudden knock on the door.. and I am willing to bet everything I've got that it will be during a time when no one in the world is expecting it.
"Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh." Matt 25:13
And watch out for those who claim they do.
