Plus, we need to remember Jesus’ warning that there would be some degree of normalcy all the way up to the end.
26 “Just as it was in the days of Noah, so also will it be in the days of the Son of Man. 27 People were eating, drinking, marrying and being given in marriage up to the day Noah entered the ark. Then the flood came and destroyed them all.
28 “It was the same in the days of Lot. People were eating and drinking, buying and selling, planting and building. 29 But the day Lot left Sodom, fire and sulfur rained down from heaven and destroyed them all. – Luke 17:26-29 (NIV)
This tells us that as crazy as things get, there will always be some degree of normalcy until the return of the Lord and his full wrath is poured out. People will be buying and selling, eating and drinking, buying and selling, planting and building–that sounds pretty normal!
