None of the second coming passages allow time for repentance. Except Mark 12:9 but that refers to the AD70 destruction, when Jesus' coming was veiled with clouds.
The popular religious fiction has had no more Gospel impact than disaster movies.
Why do they think life is fun without Christ ? Whatever happened to the promised more abundant life of the Good Shepherd? John 10:7-11
This is an argument I've heard pastors have over the years.
A. There are many verses which speak of the Lord returning at a time no one expects. In these many are caught unprepared and will not be with Him. Just what do these verses speak to?
B. If there is a pre or mid trib rapture, can or can't certain folks be saved afterward?
C. If there is no pre or mid trib rapture, doesn't that mean people should be all the more urgent in getting saved and making their calling and election sure?
D. If we believe there will be a pre or mid trib rapture and those who heard the Gospel but rejected it will automatically be unable to ever be saved after the rapture, are we perhaps helping to condemn millions of souls to hell knowing that if we share the Gospel with them most will reject it and if the rapture occurs soon they will be doomed?
E. If when Christ returns it's at the end for this world, doesn't that add to the reasons why today is the day of salvation (since we don't know when He will return) and present another clear reason why folks need to get saved now rather than risking later?
There are more points to this, and these could be expanded, but most have probably heard them (at least some of them) before.
One of the problems with much of modern preaching and evangelism, with regards to why people are more interested in fun now than eternal abundant life, has to do with them telling people they can be Christians and live like the world. So many today preach an easy christianity where God wants them to be happy now, to have the good life now, and then God will also give them great things in heaven after they are finished living it up here on earth.
That message easily fits into the worlds message of postponing adulthood, responsibility and maturity as long as possible for the sake of entertainment, pleasing oneself with the things of the world, and the constant seeking of perpetual happiness.
These messages combine to give people the false idea that what really matters in life is entertainment, happiness and goodies here and now. No need to worry about the future because they government will take care of you when you get old and God's a real softy, all about love and non-judgmental so as long as you're not an evil dictator or serial killer you can be sure of heaven as your final home.
