“That day” will definitely come

the day of the Lord

Why do we need to heed the final call of God? Because that day, the day of the Lord will come, and soon!

“That day” will definitely come. The watchman believes. But what is “that day”? The watchman asked. These are the answers. God’s way is still the only way.

When will the day come? No one knows. But God does not delay. He has told us before hand and had given ample notice to those who dwell on earth.
