Objective: To highlight the necessity of being prepared for Christ coming while mercy door is still open.


1. Daniel prophesied about the great tribulation ahead. How was this recorded? Daniel 12: 1. What are the SURE signs of the time and the end of the world and who will understand? Matthew 24: 3 – 14, Daniel 12: 10 (last part)


2. Distinguish between the five wise and five foolish virgins in their preparation for the Lord’s return. Matthew 25: 1 – 4, and state what happened as a result of how prepared they were? Matthew 25: 7 – 12


3. Like the five wise virgins, what should we prepare for according to John 14: 1 – 3, and how should we prepare? Matthew 25: 13, Mark 13: 33 – 37, Titus 2: 11 – 15, 1 Thessalonians 5: 6 – 10

6. While the window for preparation is still open today, there will be some who will not be prepared. Why is this so according to 2 Peter 3: 1 – 3? What will be the state of man during this time? Matthew 24: 37 – 39, 2 Timothy 3: 1 – 7, 1 Thessalonians 5: 3

Note: It is without doubt or question that Jesus is coming back to earth to complete the plan of salvation. His coming will be sudden and so we should acknowledge the imminence of His return. When we look at the intensity, frequency, and dreadfulness of the end of time happenings, it should be enough to put us in a state of readiness for the coming of the Lord. Let us not be ignorant of the signs but instead let us GET READY AND STAY READY while the door of mercy is still open.
