“Know this first of all, that in the last days mockers will come with their mocking, following after their own lusts, and saying, ‘Where is the promise of His coming’” (2 Peter 3:3-9)?
Mockers mock and scoffers scoff. It’s who they are and what they do. Unlike the critics and skeptics, our view and interpretation of life isn’t determined by appearances but the word of God; not by the watch or calendar but the eternal purposes of God. Sadly, mockers fail to recognize that their critical taunts of a God who is seemingly inactive and delays, is the very God who acts patiently for their benefit; in the hope that even the scoffers might come to faith.
