“In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.” (I Corinthians 15:52) (KJV)

Michael Parfit, a writer for Smithsonian magazine.Parfit learned of the incredible power of this giant river. The Mississippi gathers its water from 41 percent of the continental U.S., catching water from Montana to New York. Half a trillion tons of water flow down the Mississippi every year, carrying downstream sixty-three thousand tons of soil a day.

A river this big is a threat to the surrounding countryside. That’s why engineers have built levees to pinch the mighty giant and keep it from flooding the farmland and towns nearby. The levees on the lower Mississippi stand, on average, twenty-five feet high and run 2,203 miles on both sides of the main river and its tributaries.

“As the wall was built over the years,” writes Parfit, ” people came to live under its protection. They tore down the forest and planted cotton, and the floodplain of the Mississippi became the expanse of farmland known as the Mississippi Delta.”

More than eight million people live in the Delta. But at what risk? Parfit flew in a plane over the Mississippi Delta and saw plainly the river’s tracks on the land, where it once had flooded the delta.

“The levee…cages the giant, or appears to,” writes Parfit. “And no one but birds and an occasional light-plane pilot notices the long sweep of the river’s indelible script. What the river has written in the mud again and again is simple: ’Someday soon.’ “

Someday soon will come another flood. That’s what Parfit warned in February of 1993. Someday soon will come another devastating flood like the ones in 1882, 1927, and 1973.

“People in this valley get a sense everything is totally controlled,” one engineer told Parfit. “That’s a false sense of security. We haven’t seen anything yet in this valley as to what this river can do. We’re not in control of anything.”

“The river,” wrote Parfit in February 1993, “moves brown swift, unpredictable, enormous, always murmuring ’Someday soon…’”

In February 1993 when his article was published, Parfit could not have imagined how right he would be. Only months after the publication of the article, in the summer in 1993, came one of the worst floods of the history of the Mississippi.

God’s Word warns that someday soon, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, Christ will return to the earth, bringing the terrible wrath of God on all who have not prepared their lives for His coming. Nothing can stop Him. The wise person gets ready. 

Friends let us prepare ourselves to meet the Lord and to be with Him forever.

“Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.” (Mathew 24:44)

“Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.” (Mathew 24:42) Amen.
