Peter continues the discussion of the last days:

“Knowing this first, that in the last days mockers shall come 
with mockery, walking after their own lusts, and saying, ‘Where 
is the promise of his coming? For, from the day the fathers 
fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning 
of the creation...they are willingly ignorant...that the world that then 
was, being overflowed with water, perished.” (2 Peter 3:3-6)

Back in the 1970’s, it seemed that most Christians were speaking 
about the Rapture, which means “the catching away.” There was 
an excitement, an anticipation of an event that would bring about 
tremendous change for both those who were taken to heaven and 
those who were left behind. Books were written on this subject. 
Today it seems that no one is interested in the Rapture and those 
who believe in the immanent return of Jesus, are scoffed at. In fact, 
the comments made sound very much like what Peter speaks of in 
the verses above. 

When I feel the warmth of the sun on my back, hear the birds singing, 
the laughter of my grandson, everything feels normal; I cannot imagine 
that it will not continue indefinitely. But scripture declares that all things
 have not stayed the same because there WAS a real flood, and it 
destroyed the world.

It could happen tomorrow. So what do we do with today?
