The Lord is not slow about his promise as some count slowness, but is forbearing toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance. (2 Peter 3:9 RSV)
On March 26, 2000, Seattles famed Kingdome home of the Seattle Seahawks, Mariners, and at times, the Super Sonics was destroyed. Maryland-based Controlled Demolition Incorporated was hired to do the job of imploding the 25,000-ton structure that had marked Seattles skyline for two dozen years.
In short, CDI took every reasonable measure and more to warn people of the impending danger.
The Bible teaches of a final judgment and destruction for this sinful world. Like the engineers who blew up the Kingdome, our heavenly Father has spared no expense to make sure everybody can get out safely. He warns us through our consciences, through the prophets, through the Word of God, through the Holy Spirit, through the Church, and through his Son. Lets be warned. Even more, lets make sure everyone is accounted for and informed before the day of destruction. God doesnt want anyone to perish!
