“Now concerning that day and hour no one knows–neither the angels in heaven, nor the Son–except the Father only. As the days of Noah were, so the coming of the Son of Man will be. For in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day Noah boarded the ark. They didn’t know until the flood came and swept them all away. So this is the way the coming of the Son of Man will be: Then two men will be in the field: one will be taken and one left. Two women will be grinding at the mill: one will be taken and one left. Therefore be alert, since you don’t know what day your Lord is coming. But know this: If the home owner had known what time the thief was coming, he would have stayed alert and not left his house to be broken into. This is why you also must be ready, because the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.”
Matthew 24:36-44 (HCSB)

In Christ Jesus:
There is no condemnation.
There is no defeat.
There is no fear.
There is no despair.
There is no calamity.
There is no adversary.
There is no separation.
There is no condemnation. Why? Because Christ died for us!
There is no defeat. Why? Because the Spirit of God indwells!
There is no fear. Why? Because God has become a Father to us!
There is no despair. Why? Because we know that our very sufferings reap the glory! How could there be despair?
There is no Calamity. Why? There is no calamity that can overtake us in Christ, because “We know that all things work together for good.”
There is no adversary. Why? Because God is for us! Nobody can be against us!
Last, there is no separation in Christ. Why? Because God, in Christ, has set His love upon us!
