For today’s thought this definition is most appropriate;
the point at which an issue, idea, product, etc., crosses a certain threshhold and gains significant momentum, triggered by some minor factor or change.
With that as a backdrop lets have a closer look at; the first and second coming of the Messiah, and key indicators leading to Tipping Points for each event.
The first happened in line with; prophecies, the epoch (the fullness of time) and prayers of the likes of Simeon and Anna. This was encapsulated in these words in Paul’s letter to his friends in Galatia;
But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of a woman
In similar fate His Second Coming is on the horizon, and like athletes at the Winter Olympics in Sochi, we are called to be at our best mentally, physically and spiritually.
In His very own words to His audience at His First Coming;
When the Son of Man comes, things will be just as they were when Noah lived. People were eating, drinking, and getting married right up to the day when Noah went into the big boat. Then the flood came and drowned everyone on earth.
When Lot lived, people were also eating and drinking. They were buying, selling, planting, and building. But on the very day Lot left Sodom, fiery flames poured down from the sky and killed everyone. The same will happen on the day when the Son of Man appears.
Friends, we are close to Tipping Point again – something is about to happen!
