Are We In The End Times?
Will The Church Be Raptured Soon?
In light of all the events that are happening in our world at an exponential rate, I state with confidence, YES, to the above questions.
I am an avid studier of Eschatology, (The End Time Study). I tell you, the return of Jesus Christ for His Believers is a hairs breath away.
The resent Tsunami is just a foretaste of more and greater shakings of this earth. 2005 will bring an increase of these disasters and resulting plagues and famine will follower in their wake.
The USA will not be spared our share of these disasters. Our Nation has turned from God and He is removing His protection from us.
The Bible tells us that all nations will turn against Israel and our attempt to get Israel to give up their covenant land is a slap in the face of God. God blesses those who bless Israel and curses those who curse Israel. We are losing our blessing to the Christian haters who want to take God out of our government and are succeeding at it.
Paul told us not to be ignorant of the things that are coming on this earth. We are instructed to be Watchmen so that we can sound the alarm to those who would sleep.
WAKE UP! THE ENEMY IS UPON US.
Do You See What I See?
The Lord responded: "And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth." (Lk. 21: 25-26).
"When these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your head, for your redemption draweth nigh" (Lk. 21:28).
It seems like everywhere I turn these days, everyone agrees the rapture is near. There have been periods in history when people were convinced, but the signs were never more clear than right now! The Bible states in Daniel 12 that the words of the scroll were sealed up until the time of the end. Things we couldn't understand before God is revealing now because the end is near. My pastor preached on it a couple weeks ago and said the same thing you did about the USA not backing Israel. That only means trouble for us...
I agree that the rapture is near. I just read an article about the Verichip and how it is SO close to being used in humans - a cashless society is being discussed, etc. It's exciting, yet frightening at the same time - scary only because of loved ones who haven't yet embraced the truth. I guess that's all the more reason to reach out to them while there's still time...
Great article, Lucian. I'd love to read more from you on this topic.
Even so, come Lord Jesus. May the Lord be merciful and kind in His comfort to those who are hurting over the many, many lives lost due to those tsunamis. May He turn our hearts toward our mothers and fathers, sons and daughters, sisters and brothers, and our eyes heavenward. And may He bless you for your heart's cry to the nations for repentence.
