“But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. Take heed, watch and pray; for you do not know when the time is." Mark 13:32-33

The European Union meltdown is heading into high gear as warning signs continue to flash. Even though President Obama said he was keen to see the eurozone crisis end: "the United States stands ready to do our part to help Europe resolve this issue. This is of huge importance to our economy..." there is not enough money in the world to bail out Europe along with all the debt  the United States has and continues to create.

The Middle East is  surging toward an all-out war. Hezbollah is under the control of Iran. As Kaytusha missiles are fired from Lebanon into Israel one must ask: "is Iran sending a message to Israel - 'get ready for war?'"

How much longer can war be restrained? How long before Europe implodes?

Is the Rapture closer than we can imagine? Is it time to start the countdown; the Day of the LORD, the battle of Armageddon, the Second Coming of the LORD Jesus Christ with His church? All the warning signs are flashing,  sirens are blasting -- God's judgments on this world are about to begin...

and time is running out.

  3. The scary part is knowing what suffering we may endure.

  4. So, am I to gather you are not a member of the group that believes the church will rapture [pre-trib/pre-wrath gathering of the saints] and will not experience any of the enemies evil plans.?.

  5. I am a post-tribber. That's what I see the Bible says; no "get out of tribulation free "card, and no second chances for those who stay behind. I can't find that belief until the 19th century. But it's not one of those things I get worked up about :oD

  6. Many do not share your view - I however do.!!.

    If we are wrong - fine - but if we are right, many are not prepared for what is coming and this is a great sadness to me.

  7. Part of that philosophy also says, "why work hard to evangelize - they'll have another chance." So they just don't worry about evangelization, or even correcting wrong doctrine. I think the pre-trib teaching has made Christians theologically lazy.

    As you said, if we are wrong - fine; we just did our best and ended up not having needed to prepare. But if we are right, it is better to be psychologically prepared than to not be!
