On The Brink Of War?

On The Brink Of War?




By Mike Taylor





--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Prophecy writers have been preaching the soon return of Jesus Christ and we wonder how soon? The indicators of the soon return of our Lord are all around us, but it has been fuzzy, but grows much clearer as time passes. Much like a picture developed in a dark room, as we see the image slowly coming into view. News reports have been coming fast and furious in the last few weeks, and from this perspective, I see the puzzle of end time events growing much more into focus with each passing day.







MOUNTING NEWS FLASHES







Let’s examine a few of these indicators that the time is short for the return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Start with the economic troubles in Greece, Italy, Ireland, Spain and most of Europe that has even affected our economy, as the world economy has become closely tied to one another. First news flash is that it’s been reported that the Vatican has …

The End Of The Last Days

The End Of The Last Days




By Matt Leasher





--------------------------------------------------------------------------------







In the decades that followed the rebirth of Israel as a nation in 1948, Bible prophecy scholars have been declaring the realization that we are in the last days and that Christ is coming soon. But as the decades continue to roll by many have become weary of the message that we are in the last days and have presumed Christ’s return to be far off. The problem with the people that are losing hope in Christ’s soon return is that perhaps they do not understand just exactly what the last days are in light of the big picture.







Hebrews 1:1-2 tells us that the period known as being the “last days” began when Jesus Christ came into the world.







God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, (Hebrews 1:1-2).

Turning Point: June 17,1963

Turning Point: June 17, 1963 – Ed Wood – www.raptureready.com On June 7, 1776, Richard Henry Lee of Virginia moved "that these united colonies are and of right ought to be free and independent states." The resolution was adopted on July 2, and the Declaration of Independence was approved on July 4. Most of the signers had seminary degrees and this influence is strongly reflected in the first two paragraphs of the document in which the reality of God as Creator is clearly acknowledged. Defying the odds and beginning with a rag-tag militia, the colonies, with the help of France, goes on to win its freedom over what was then perhaps the greatest military power on Earth. It was this enduring belief in the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, Father of Jesus of Nazareth that I believe made America the greatest nation in the history of civilization. this is not to say we were perfect. The injustices perpetrated on North America's original inhabitants, the perpetuati…

2 Timothy 3

1This know also (Realize), that in the last days perilous (difficult, dangerous) times shall come.

3Without natural affection (unloving), truce breakers (irreconcilable), false accusers (malicious gossips), incontinent (no self-control), fierce (cruel), despisers (haters) of those that are good,

The Judgement of God is falling on America

The Judgment of God is falling on America –The Answer! - By Bill Keller – www.raptureready.com The judgment of God is falling, it is time to seize the opportunity! Only the spiritually dead or those who simply deny the existence of God can't see that what this nation is facing is the beginning of God's judgment for our sins and wickedness. I actually laugh each time I hear some "genius" on TV talking about when this current economic crisis will be over and things will be "back to normal." I have news for the experts; things are NEVER going to be "back to normal," and the ONLY hope we have to see anything but the total destruction of life as we have known it, is to get on our knees, repent, and turn back to God and His Truth. THERE IS NO OTHER ANSWER! Recently, Pastor David Wilkerson of the Times Square Church, author of "The Cross and the Switchblade," and founder of Teen Challenge, warned the readers of his blog about an "imminent cat…

Something Big Is About To Happen

Something Big Is About To Happen - By Carl Worline – www.raptureready.com The entire world is on edge because everyone senses that something big is about to happen. Christians know that either the Rapture of the Church or the battle described in Psalm 83 is about to occur. Many Muslims in the Islamic world think their Mahdi is about to return. Members of the New Age Movement look for the arrival of their Maitreya at any moment. The ancient Mayans, various tribes of American Indians, Nostradamus, the notorious 16th century soothsayer Mother Shipton, and Sir Isaac Newton have all predicted a series of cataclysmic worldwide disasters will occur around this time in history. Even the chief ju-ju bead counters who write for the supermarket tabloids are predicting the return of “The King” (Elvis). The Earth longs to be free of the curse it has suffered under ever since the original sin of Adam and Eve. Jesus told us in Matthew 24:7-8 that His return would be preceded by upheavals in nature whi…
