Are We Living In The Last Days?

Four Horsemen Of The Apocalypse - Public DomainCould it be possible that we are living in the period of time that the Bible refers to as “the last days”?  And if so, what does that mean for our future?  As we approach the final months of 2015, it seems like more people are talking about apocalyptic scenarios than ever before.  The mainstream media is doing articles on “end of the world fears“, and it is being reported that 41 percent of all Americans believe that “we are living in what the Bible calls the last days.”  For those that believe, the signs are everywhere – geopolitical instability, moral decay, steadily increasing numbers of natural disasters and a global financial system that could fall apart at any moment.  Others mock the idea that we could be living in “the last days”, and many of them point to the amazing technological progress that humanity is making and the unprecedented prosperity that we have been enjoying in recent times.  If things are actually “getting better”, they argue, then how could we possibly be living in the end times described in the Bible?  And of course atheists are convinced that God doesn’t exist at all, and that all of this apocalyptic talk is just a bunch of religious nonsense.  So what is the truth?

This is a very controversial area of discussion, and I certainly recognize that there are a wide variety of opinions on this.  I am going to share with you what I think, and you can take it for what you think that it is worth.  Personally, I always like to start with certain preconditions that had to have been met before the last days as described in the Bible could begin.

In particular, the rebirth of the nation of Israel in 1948 was an extremely significant event.  The events described in the book of Revelation and elsewhere in the Bible regarding the last days assume that the nation of Israel exists and that it controls the city of Jerusalem.  Well, when the book of Revelation was written the nation of Israel had already ceased to exist.

In 70 AD, the Romans absolutely flattened the city of Jerusalem and dispersed the Jewish people.  For almost two thousand years, the land of Israel and the city of Jerusalem were controlled by foreign powers.  But then that all changed in 1948.

Never before in human history had a nation that had been wiped off the face of the map for nearly two thousand years come back into existence.  But in 1948 it happened just like the Bible said that it would.  And then in 1967 the Jewish people recaptured the city of Jerusalem just like the Bible said that they would.

But that does not necessarily mean that we are in “the last days”.  Even though certain preconditions have been met, the return of Jesus Christ could still potentially be a way off.

In Matthew chapter 24, Jesus describes some other things that we should look for just prior to His return…

For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

All these are the beginning of sorrows.

Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.

10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.

11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.

12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

Certainly so much of that is now coming to pass, and on my website I regularly write about the increase in natural disasters that we have already seen in recent years and about the great natural disasters that are coming.

But in this article I want to focus on the phrase “iniquity shall abound”.

For decades, the United States and much of the rest of the world has been in moral decline.  For this country in particular, I would refer you to an article that I did entitled “100 Facts About The Moral Collapse Of America That Are Almost Too Crazy To Believe“.  Our nation has become a cesspool of wickedness, filth and corruption, and it is getting worse with each passing day.

It has been said that if God does not judge the United States that He will have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.  Prominent Christian ministers all over America believe that we stand right at the precipice of major judgment, and this includes Billy Graham’s own son

Franklin Graham, president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, says the “defining moment” for America and humanity has arrived.

As a nation we have arrogantly turned our back on God, and I believe God’s judgment will come against our country,” Graham says.

I agree with Franklin Graham.

In fact, I believe that America is being shown exactly why judgment is coming.

For example, I believe that all of these undercover Planned Parenthood videos have come out at this specific time so that the entire nation can be confronted with our nightmarish crimes against humanity.

Virtually everyone in America now knows that Planned Parenthood viciously murders babies, harvests their body parts, and sells them off to the highest bidder.

And the U.S. government is funding this.

So where is the outcry?

Where is the national repentance?

There should be Nuremburg-style trials for what is going on, and yet the silence is deafening!

The sad truth is that we can’t even get Planned Parenthood defunded, and some of our politicians actually intend to go after the organization that made the undercover videos exposing these practices.

Today, most churches and most Christians don’t even want to utter the word “abortion” because it might “offend” someone.  Plus, many Christians are so busy ripping each other to pieces that they don’t even have time to address the things that really matter.

For decades, God has been pleading with America to repent, but there has been no repentance.

So now God is going to have to use judgment to try to wake us up.  And we should be very thankful for this, because I believe that without the shaking that is coming there would be no repentance at all.

God could have set a day for the return of His Son that had no warnings whatsoever.  But because shaking after shaking is coming, there will be opportunity after opportunity for all of us to turn back to God, and that is what He ultimately wants.

The God of the Bible has laid out His plan in advance, and it is there for everyone to see.  One scholar has discovered that there are at least 1,800 references to the return of Jesus Christ in the Scriptures

In The End, Bible prophecy scholar Dr. Mark Hitchcock wrote there are more than 1,800 references to the Second Coming in the Bible and for every prophecy about Christ’s first coming there are eight regarding His Second Coming. People are exhorted more than 50 times to be ready for Christ’s return. In light of present world conditions, we need to not only prepare for Jesus’ return, but to tell others about it too. Their eternal destinies are at stake.

Ultimately, all of us get to choose what we will believe, and most people end up believing exactly what they want to believe.

But for those that are truly seeking, the truth is not hard to find.

Yes, I believe that we are living in the last days just before the return of Jesus Christ as described in the Bible.

    Absolutely the best article I have read from this author. Very true!

    • KirstyJason Menard

      I totally agree Ashley. I’m impressed with this one!

    • dame

      what do you mean with the best article?

      • loadnup

        self explanatory..

    • dame

      the best absolutely article for you! but your intelligence is 3%

  • Sam

    I think that I could not have stated matters better or more clearly. Thank you.. and I’ll see you in the sky when the trumpet sounds.
    The Dark is “cleansing” itself of all “grey” becoming utterly dark. as Rabbi Cahn said so eloquently.. it is time for those of the Light, to also be cleansed from the grey in our own lives and become utterly light. There is no middle ground anymore.. there is no razors edge.. there is only Light or Dark. Choose you this day who you will serve.

    • The Money Hater

      It’s coming to the time that god and the devil will fight each other.

      • j2ashes

        the lord created the devil and he was here always; the almighty is the all-knowing and all powerful in all the worlds. the devil is no match for his grace. the devil cannot even blow one punch to god. he will cut the devil into many many different varieties, throw each piece into different garbage can and that will be the end of him. but first, god will obliterate all the devils children on earth and in the world before confronting him. he will wipe out every last crumb of their filth. we just need to repent and get closer to him.

        • dame

          which lord??????????????????!!!!!
          And wich devel, the devel in you?

          • Rob

            you mean Devil?

          • dame

            Sorry English is my fourth language

        • dame

          there is no god… it is an energy..

        • Rick

          NO…God did NOT create a devil. He created a cherub named Heylel who BECAME the devil. You obviously don’t know the Bible. Blow off the dust and read through Isaiah 14 & Ezekiel 28 to see that Heylel became vain and filled with pride to the point that he wanted to try to kick God off His throne. And BTW, “GOD” should be capitalized.

          • Rob

            Amen!

          • PPTA

            In te King James version, itis Lucifer, (Heylel is ancient Hebrew, means te same thing). He was the most beautiful Angle that the Lord ever made., he had a brightness,(was above the Morning Star) He was cast down out of heaven to the earth. His name (his brightness, 14:17. 1/3rd of the Angles went with him. Some of them, maybe all of them, saw that the daughters of men were fair, so they took human form in Noah’s time before the flood and made the women of men had there babies. , They were called Nephilim, There are legends of these giants from all over the world.

          • schaep

            Sounds to me like there was a star brighter then the morningstar that went supernova and caused meteorites to rain down on earth causing floods.

          • Daddyotis

            Whoa…Rick…take a chill pill and try to respond without having to bite someone’s head off, please. There is already so much nastiness in the world, a little gentleness and kindness would be a refreshing approach. God Bless.

        • dame

          there is no lord!

      • dame

        GOOD!

        • loadnup

          never mind….

      • Susan Jones

        Jesus will lock him up in a pit for a thousand yrs

        • Glenn Condrey

          actually Satan will be cast down to the Earth for 1000 years. The righteous dead will be with Jesus in heaven…and Satan’s lot will be to rule a dead planet. There will be no one to tempt…as the wicked dead are not resurrected until Jesus and the holy City returns to Earth after the 1000 years are up.
          The word used for bottomless pit in the Bible is “Abussos”…from where we get the word Abyss.
          The only other time that word was used in the bible was in Genesis…at the creation of the word. It basically said “And the world was void and without form (Abussos).”

    • NowAlive

      So true. You can certainly see the tares being separated from the wheat. Many of the false Christians are even now working against Christ. It kind of makes me think of John 16:2.

    • Sandbagger

      Do an internet search on, “Why Jonathan Cahn and His Revelations Must be Ignored”.

      Quote from the above search article on Discerning the World:

      “Rabbi Jonathan Cahn has been bothering me with his The Harbinger and now The Mystery of the Shemitah ‘revelations’. Who is he exactly? Is he
      a born again Christian or is far worse than just your plain run of the
      mill false teacher?”

      He calls himself a Rabbi yet the bible says:

      Matthew 23:8 “8 But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren.”

      I know Michael promos his books, but one “should test the spirits” for oneself on Jonathan Cahn.

      • Reese Daniel

        I also discern something “off” with this Cahn fellow.

  • Jorma

    I would like to add to the rebirth of Israel prophecy from the diaspora, that God or Christ promised that the youngest generation that saw the rebirth of Israel would ALSO see the second coming. We must be at the tail end of that young generation.

    So finally Michael nails it, a good article based upon real hope, he almost ran out of time to sneak one in – literally.

    • jaxon64

      Exactly– we have always had earthquakes, severe weather and war. As Michael pointed out, the return of the Jewish people to their ancient homeland and the iniquity ” as in the days of Noah” are the truest indicators that differentiate prior human trials from the end times signs…….

    • geo .

      We are the generation of the fig tree,that will witness the return of Christ the generation that began with the rebirth of Israel in 1948. a generation is three score and ten or 70 years. indicating sometime in mid 2018. God has also allotted 6000 years for man to attempt to rule and that 6000 yr reign of man ends in 2018. then begins the 1000 yr reign of Christ. But before Christ returns much has to happen. from the twin towers in sept 01 to the collapse of sept 08 to the final collapse of sept 2015. all occurring in sept. which is the 9th month. 9 in biblical numerics is the number of judgment or finality. on the day of the economic crash of sept 08 these triple numbers showed up. defict year to date 666 billion, stocks fell 777 points and gold closed at 888. 999 will then join these other 3 triple numbers in the final act of judgment or finality come sept 2015. check out revelation chapter 18 where judgment has come in one hour referencing the twin towers and check out acts 2:19 and 2:20 blood fire and pillows of smoke i.e. the twin towers and the sun into darkness and the moon into blood i.e. blood moon tetrads. finally check out revelation chapter 6 vs.6 and vs.12 here again is 666. along with the blood moon tetrads. The sun into darkness between the blood moons was an omen for the entire planet. Review revelation chapter 18 its describing a world wide hyperinflationary depression.

      • Gay Veteran

        bilge

        • geo .

          To those living in darkness it certainly does look like bilge but to those with eyes to see and ears to hear it is clear as sunlight. prophecy is simply history written in advance. Yes the four sets of triple numbers are just a coincidence. even more of a coincidence when tied to the Harbinger of 9 curses pronounced by our own government tied in with the blood moon tetrads which will be the 8th time this has occurred since Christ walked the planet. 8 being the number for a new beginning. there sure seems to be a lot of coincidences all lining up. for even more enlightenment Google and view signs in the heavens then Google and listen to strange sounds. seems the trumpet is sounding thru out the world, a warning of approaching danger. remember too that Christ comes at the last trump.

          • Gay Veteran

            try thinking for yourself.
            prophecy, just toss in some numbers, chicken bones and goat entrails

          • VigilanteCaregiver

            Pretended prophesy, toss in some numbers, chicken bones (or finch bones) and goat entrails: exactly how Darwinian evolution was conceived.

          • Gay Veteran

            riiiiiiiiight
            find that ark yet?

          • VigilanteCaregiver

            When you discover what the boy parts and girl parts are for; then I’ll answer.

          • Gay Veteran

            hey junior, I was raised on a dairy farm, so I know what the parts do

          • VigilanteCaregiver

            Then why can’t you do it?

          • Gay Veteran

            are you really that stone cold stupid?
            oh, but using your “logic” you could become gay. now try actually thinking about that

          • DANA

            Questions remain about the location of the ARK, but there have been hundreds of archeological findings that have confirmed the testimony and accuracy of the Bible. Between both science and archeology, we have more proof than ever that the Bible is accurate and true. No other religious text comes close.

          • geo .

            check out revelation 11;19 there you will find the so called lost ark, right where its always been.

          • Gay Veteran

            “Questions remain about the location of the ARK….”

            ROFLOL, good luck with that since you can’t locate something that never existed

          • geo .

            You can quit asking this question. check out revelation 11:19 and there you will find it.

        • Ouida Gabriel

          Why do you feel the need to comment every time there is a comment supporting Christianity. Whenever I see you comment and I disagree, I just move on because I understand you have a difference of opinion. You cant seem to do that. You have to point out that you think Christians are wrong on every comment they write. Why dont you grow up and act like an adult. People can agree to disagree. At least mature adults can.

          • Gay Veteran

            I believe in calling a spade a spade.

            “…You have to point out that you think Christians are wrong on every comment they write….”

            exaggerate much?

  • Erik Bergum

    I also believe we are living in the last days as well

    • NowAlive

      I hope you’re right.

    • dame

      well you are wrong!

      • DaveL

        Yeah, because there’s been a lot of nations come back after 2000 years of non-existence, as predicted. Right? Well…then again…maybe not!

      • christy

        U R

  • VigilanteCaregiver

    Mike, this is your masterpiece!

    We are in the last days. There’s no such thing as coincidence – we are experiencing each and every fixed marker the Lord, Our God placed in the timeline.

    I’d also like to encourage the faithful to read the Book of Isaiah and pray for understanding about it.

  • robert

    And yet Christianity and the gospel are exploding inside of China. The world is not about the US of A. Americans can be so arrogant with the notion that somehow God’s plan revolves around this nation. This nation can be thrown into the cesspool of history and forgotten. So what? Nations and empires have fallen throughout history and this nation is no different. I expect that to happen.

    Evil has abounded here for centuries. We dismiss slavery and the awfulness of it. The Baptists split into Northern Baptists and Southern Baptists over the issue. How could a Christian support and defend slavery, but they did and still do in some ways. Slavery was a brutal institution and we are still feeling the effects. Instead of slavery we have the evil of abortion and many Americans accept it and some embrace it. Also the homosexual agenda openly supported by some “christians”.

    Bottomline. This nation can fall, collapse or be wrecked via attack from other powers and the true church will go forward. It is not a good idea to prophesy about the return of the Messiah based on events in the USA.

    • Robert, I don’t necessarily see Michael’s article as a way of stating that God’s actions revolve around the U.S.A. Rather, I see it as a modern-day illustration of how a once great nation can fall from grace due to moral collapse, idolatry, and the like (which parallels with the nation of Israel during the period of the books of Kings & Chronicles).

      • NowAlive

        Exactly. Judgment is coming on the US, which was once almost entirely Christian but is now almost entirely “CINO”: Christian In Name Only. I see “Christians” throwing their brothers and sisters under the bus, standing against scripture, and thus against God (Matt 12:30). So many have said, “I’m a Christian…and I pray when I need something” and then the rest of the time you couldn’t recognize them as being any different than their unsaved peers. Oh nevermind, Real Housewives is starting….

      • The Money Hater

        I cast you out and rebuke you satan rite now in the name of Jesus. I cover my self with the blood of Jesus now. No ugly looking beast will get near me.

        • TheMatrixHasU

          What for? There is nothing wrong in what Adam said, he is right on the money

      • DANA

        People fall from grace, nations fall from grace, one day the world will fall from grace.

    • rentslave

      We certainly are feeling the effects of slavery today:20 trillion dollars wasted for Lyndon Johnson’s War on Poverty,an amount that exceeds the national debt.

    • jaxon64

      I don’t see how you equivocated the article to be about, Christ’s return = USA downfall. Certainly the moral degradation of the USA is a definitive sign however the primary sign is the reformation of the Jewish people in their ancient, and promised homeland.
      I don’t believe people realize the magnitude of this miracle! Where are the Moabites, Hittites, Ammonites, Philistines, Caananites, etc etc?? The unlikely scenario where a nation and ethnic group of people can be conquered and taken into slavery by Egypt, Babylon and then finally massacred and strewn to the far corners of the globe by Titus/Rome–after all of this they remain. Two thousand years they have maintained their culture, identity and traditions; they survived and thrived and against genocide, ethnic hatred and all odds, they have returned to their homeland–as God promised would occur at the end times…it is hard to wrap one’s mind around the scale of this.

      • michelle

        The last days exodus has NOT happened…the Jews gathering back to Israel over all these years is Not Gods last day gathering…they have not returned to God, turned away from their idols, and do not know or follow The Word; Jesus…I do believe that day is coming soon :)

      • Leslie

        Very well said jaxon64!

    • Paul Patriot

      You make very good points. However, the impact and influence the USA has had on the world, cannot be compared to any other nation in history. We also have a Republic that no other nation has ever had, and because of our foundations have influenced other nations (for good and bad) like no other. We have also sent out more missionaries than any other nation in history.

      When America falls, it will send shock waves to the rest of the world. You are right, the Church will continue, but, when we crash, it will bring about a global change like nothing before this time in history.

      • Gay Veteran

        much of the rest of the world will rejoice when the American empire falls

        • Preacher62

          Actually, according to the bible, the rest of the world mourns because of the fall of (Babylon) America because there is no one left to buy their cheap goods any longer. But you are correct in that there will be rejoicing by some.

          • TheMatrixHasU

            American is not Babylon. Babylon is centered on the Roman Catholic church and will encompass the whole world, not just the USA. Good golly people what is it with you Americans, you think the world revolves around you.

          • Preacher62

            Actually I believe exactly the opposite. America is so insignificant in God’s scheme of things that we are not even mentioned in the Revelation, unless it might possibly be as the whore of Babylon. The only thing we are good at is buying stuff from the other countries and it does not take a genius to figure out that if and when America falls, there will be no one else to buy their stuff. If this is not about America then we apparently cease to exist long prior to the end days.
            Revelation 18:11 “And the merchants of the earth weep and mourn over her, because no one buys their cargoes any more— 12 cargoes of gold and silver and precious [m]stones and pearls and fine linen and purple and silk and scarlet, and every kind of citron wood and every article of ivory and every article made from very costly wood and [n]bronze and iron and marble,13 and cinnamon and [o]spice and incense and perfume and frankincense and wine and olive oil and fine flour and wheat and cattle and sheep, and cargoes of horses and chariots and [p]slaves and [q]human lives

          • Maubus

            Babylon is Los Angela’s and the whore that will be swallowed by the sea then returned by the sea beast cuz it don’t want her either hahahaha or whatever….

          • Reese Daniel

            You haven’t read Jeremiah Chpt 50 and 51. Babylon is the “hindermost greatest nation on earth.” That would be America. Roman Catholic Church is the WHORE of Babylon. The Roman Catholic church does not import and export all the goods spoken of in Rev Chpt 18 and the merchants overseas will not cry at the “smoke of her burning” because the “Catholic Church” no longer buys their goods and products. The Catholic Church doesn’t spread “music” to other natons either, but the USA is the number one source of music produced in the entire world. You need to go back and read Rev Chpt 18. Or just stay in denial. Your choice. Also, when John wrote these prophecies, the original Babylon had long since been destroyed. Babylon is most definitely America. Isaiah Chpt 13 and 47 also prophecies of America being destroyed.

            Pharisee, don’t you have a street corner to pray loudly at?

            much of the rest of the world will rejoice when the American empire falls because of our wars of aggression and the death and destruction we have caused around the world

          • TheMatrixHasU

            The US will fall because of its own sin, including acceptance of homosexuality which is clearly laid out as an abomination….and it was never just the gay temple prostitution as many gays like to think, its the act itself

          • Gay Veteran

            awwww, did you get all excited typing “abomination”?

            don’t you have a street corner to pray loudly at?

          • christy

            Oooo bitter..don’t be so angry at everyone. We just love Jesus cuz He’s AWESOME & forgave us & cleansed us from OUR awful sins. We found He’s the only one good & real & true. Nothing else is. He gives us purpose, life, hope, & love for the unlovely cuz He loved us while we were yet unlovely, wretched sinners & changed our hearts cuz we changed our minds. What gives you hope? Jesus Saves…besides..He loves you…even if you don’t love Him. I used to think that was a sweet lil saying…I found out for real it’s the truest thing I ever heard.

          • Gay Veteran

            uh, no, not bitter at all

          • christy

            O glad to know that. Maybe I misunderstood your comments.

          • Rob

            Sorry to see you in so much pain Veteran, it shows with your comments! Apparently you spent time in the sandbox the wounds are there. Yes, I do have a street corner to stand on…it’s call Redemption & Forgiveness. I pray that God uncovers the curse and sin that live with currently…and replace it with forgiveness and liberty to live the life God has for you…it’s never to late to live that righteous life, if you chose too! Thanks for your service and dedication to this country. Peace Brother in Arms! ( U.S. Army Veteran)

            “Sorry to see you in so much pain Veteran, it shows with your comments!….”

            LOL, then you have reading comprehension problems.

            “…I pray that God uncovers the curse and sin that lives with you currently….”

            ROFLOL, religion exists for 2 reasons:
            (1) man fears death,
            (2) as a means of social control (obey the king or you’ll go to hell).
            Heck, I’ll toss in a third reason:
            (3) so priests and preacher can obtain money and power.

            “..Thanks for your service and dedication to this country….”

            service? I was a cog in the imperial war machine

            What Kool-Aid did you drink before volunteering your life to serve this country? You were not drafted, that ended in 1973…so apparently, you were lied to or misguided in your steps to enlisting. The cog in the wheel was definitely you…a lost soul!

            hey Einstein, you think everybody understands what is going on in this country??? did you as a young man?

            several years after being in the army I read a lot and finally understood that the military is an instrument for evil

            There are good programs (not VA) out here to assist vets who are interested in helping themselves, but you must find it in yourself to do so, before it’s too late. I understand the hate for country, leadership, or the lack of, there’s a lot of knuckleheads from the white house, congress and downward who are lost! Get some help!

            This is my last posting to you…actually, I’m retiring from the Army after 27 years of honorable service this Sunday. That’s what I’ve been doing…GV. Good Luck Dude with your life whatever that may be!

          • Gay Veteran

            if you’ve been in the military for the past 27 years then the only “honorable service” has been for the imperial war machine.
            good luck in retirement, maybe you’ll read up and finally understand the evils of our fascist government

          • Rob

            yes I have been in 27 years, a month, and a few days…I wear my armband to show my allegiance to fuhrer Obama who is in charge of the imperial storm troopers of the one world government and new world order of the United States. Amen!

          • 21Grams

            War is hell, and earthly governments are evil. Limbs will be restored in Christ’s world to come. Accept him and believe in him, shake the dust from this world off. It’s not all there is. I’m sorry for your pain.

          • Gay Veteran

            uh, no pain here.
            btw, why does god ignore the prayers of amputees?

          • 21Grams

            Why are you so sure He does?

          • Gay Veteran

            got any proof that god has restored the limb of an amputee?

          • 21Grams

            Those are your “Gotcha” questions for anyone who believes in God, aren’t they?

          • Gay Veteran

            interesting you think it’s a “gotcha” question

          • 21Grams

            His plan for restoration isn’t for now. But He does promise the blind will, see, the deaf will hear, the lame will leap, and the mute will speak. I’m sure the limbs will also be restored. But if you don’t believe, then, no, he probably won’t answer your prayers until Your heart is open. Pray for that instead.

          • Gay Veteran

            we hear about all these miracle cures and prayers answered, and yet no limbs restored

          • 21Grams

            That would be sweet, but maybe it would provide too much irrefutable proof for this time. When we were young my sister asked me how I could be sure God exists. I said I thought it would be better to believe and find out he doesn’t exist, then to not believe and find out he does. That takes faith.

          • Gay Veteran

            what do you mean “at this time”?
            like it has ever happened

          • 21Grams

            True, I’ve never heard of spontaneous limb regeneration ever happening either. By “at this time”, I mean not yet. But I believe all things will be restored.

          • 21Grams

            Did you lose a limb?

          • Reese Daniel

            You are absolutely correct about the military being an instrument for evil. Most of the soldiers are just dupes for the elite but they don’t realize it. They are human sacrifices for the Luciferians and their fabricated wars to steal the wealth and resources of the world to gain control for their “New World Order” police state. I’m a follow of Jesus Christ (the Truth). I don’t call myself a “Christian” because most who do follow lies. I don’t understand why so many who claim to be Christians cannot see the truth about the military. They wear blinders on their eyes where that is concerned not realizing that soldiers do not “serve their country” they serve the BANKERS. They do not “fight for our freedom” they do THE OPPOSITE. Henry Kissinger said “Soldiers are nothing but dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policy.” Pretty much says it all, yet you can’t tell the brainwashed Christians anything about the military, it’s a demonic stronghold on their minds. Jesus said to love your enemies not “shock and awe” them with weapons of mass destruction like they did to all the innocent CIVILIANS in Hiroshima and Vietnam, etc. This is one of the issues where I part company with so called “Christians.”

          did the mormons apologize?

          • VigilanteCaregiver

            And there’s more of your ignorance.

            Mormons were not killed and driven from place to place because of polygamy (that was the excuse for the Utah War). The Church has been and always will be abolitionist. The pro-slavery folks hated us for wanting to free slaves and give them citizenship – so, it was open season on killing Mormons and Republicans in Missouri and Ohio. When the Civil War began we’d already left the United States while those who killed us were themselves killed to finally abolish slavery.

            We never really were apologized to for the multiple deaths and losses we suffered at the hands of the US Government and citizens until the 1960’s. Never received any reparations, either. Didn’t need it: the perpetrators all died during the war – justice.

            Do we need to apologize? No. We’re on record as helping former slaves establish their lives and paid a lot in our own earnings to free slaves.

            When are you going to read some history before posting?

          • DANA

            He’s a part of the I’m a victim everyone is owed an apology generation. No one alive today is a perpetrator or victim of anything that happened before their time. This obsession with past mistakes allows people like Gay Veteran to take the focus away from the sins of today. It allows them a sense of moral superiority. When people such as him obsessively bring up slavery as a reason to condemn everything from the past, simply point out that today we allow babies to be murdered and their body parts sold for profit. It usually wipes the smug moral superiority right off their face.

          • Gay Veteran

            interesting that you focus ONLY on slavery.
            did you read ANY history post-1865?

            hey Einstein, the Southern Baptists apologized for slavery AND Jim Crow!

            Southern Baptist Convention:

            “…WHEREAS, Many of our Southern Baptist forbears defended the right to own slaves, and either participated in, supported, or acquiesced in the particularly inhumane nature of American slavery; and

            WHEREAS, In later years Southern Baptists failed, in many cases, to support, and in some cases opposed, legitimate initiatives to secure the civil rights of African-Americans….”

            and what about the mormon “church”?

            “…Starting shortly after the death of the church’s founder, Joseph Smith, in 1844, the Mormon Church began denying its priesthood—otherwise granted to faithful young men over the age of 12 more or less as a matter of course—to men of African descent. That policy survived for well over a century. Only with a divine revelation announced by then-prophet Spencer W. Kimball in 1978 did the church finally overturn the ban and allow “all worthy males,” regardless of race, full and equal membership in the religion….”

      Please forgive Americans for being so USA-centric. It’s just that for many, many years God used us to finish spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ to the farthest points on the earth. We were blessed by God and our wealth as a nation was used mightily by the Lord when the rest of the world was rushing towards Communism, Fascism, 3rd world dictatorships, etc. We have had judgment poured out on us and we are no longer the best or among the best. But to those of a certain age still living, when you ask them “Which is the “most Christian nation?” They will answer, “USA.”

      • DANA

        Thank you for shedding some thoughtful truth on the issue and not just the typical blame American vitriol. The consequences of the decline and fall of this former great nation will not be fully comprehended unit it’s too late.

    • DANA

      This post has so many errors, where to begin? Slavery was and is still practiced around many parts of the world today. It was the Abolitionist movement (Christians in both America and Europe) who opposed slavery and fought to end it. THIS is why it’s no longer practiced in these countries. Can’t say that for other parts of the world today. I agree with you on the acceptance of sin in this country and we are certainly due for God’s judgment, but to say there isn’t wickedness rampant around the world is dishonest. There are nations that commit atrocities everyday around the world and who lack any charity. Yes, the church will always have a remnant. I believe it will be spread across many different nations and peoples, it will be God’s elect.

    • Reese Daniel

      Actually, we still have slavery. We are all slaves of the 1 percent of evil Luciferians controlling this planet, starting all the wars for profit, recruiting ignorant soldiers to fight and die in these unjust wars and stealing money from us via illegal taxation and inflation of their funny money monopoly paper they create out of thin air and then charge interest on it. They are destroying the planet, geoengineering the weather, corrupting our food supply with ungodly gmo frankenfood and killing off all the bees that support life on this planet. We are definitely slaves of these psychopaths who give us evil “entertainment” and cell phones to distract us while they build their cage all around us. Slavery never really ended it just expanded to everyone, not just a select group of African and Irishmen and Scottish people (the latter of which they left out of the history books because white slaves don’t serve their divide and conquer racism agenda).

  • harshmellow

    Could someone please explain to me what exactly the return of Jesus Christ means? In physical form of a man on this planet?

    • Sam

      No. Not in physical form as a physical man. The second coming is where He returns “in the clouds” and with a shout, those that have trusted in Him and have died will be raised from the dead with new, immortal bodies. Then, immediately following that( instantly ), those that are still in their physical bodies will be transformed; changed from mortal bodies to immortal bodies and will meet Him and the previously dead believers in the air and will be taken to ” the place prepared for them”. From that point; evil will have full unchecked sway on the earth and things will get very,very bad. So bad in fact, that scripture says that unless those days were not shortened, no life would remain on the earth. After a short period of time, a few years; Jesus will return again to do battle against the forces of evil and will conquer them. Then begins the 1000 year reign of Jesus on the Earth. There is much more after that; this is a very abbreviated response to what I hope was your honest question. Read the New Testament of the Bible.. Starting in Matthew…

  • loadnup

    Well, you could not have made it any more obvious and coming from you with it being posted here there can be little doubt about the sincerity of your post. I, too, know that we are living in the last days. The signs are literally everywhere. The destruction of the ONLY country on the planet that stood up for Christ/Christians is now being led by a monkey down a road that this demonic slave paints as being all good and wonderful. The reality is that now the lie is broadcast as the truth. Evil, and I mean dark, putrid evil, is portrayed as good. Everything that is happening now is of our own doing or, in reality, our not doing as in standing up when we should have demanding honesty. No, Michael, despite all the folks who will poo-poo your article, I thank you for it. There is so little time left (and I am not talking about a pre tribulation rapture as that is absolutely not scriptural) that all one can really do is pray for perseverance, prepare in how so ever one can and protect with whatever gifts you have been given. Live not in fear of anything but the loss of your soul to hell’s eternal fire….

    • Reese Daniel

      “Pray always that you may be found worthy to escape ALL these things that are coming to pass and to stand before the Son of man.” Luke 21:36 Pray for “perseverance”? Nope. Pray to ESCAPE ALL that’s coming (as in escape BEFORE it comes). To go where? To where the Son of man (Jesus) is. Where is Jesus? IN HEAVEN at the right hand of the Father. So either Jesus lied and is misleading us to pray for something that is “absolutely not scriptural” or you are in grievous error teaching against His word and I suspect you are not “praying to be counted worthy to ESCAPE ALL” as He commanded and is plainly written in Scripture. I’ll stick with Jesus.

    The hand of the LORD was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of the LORD, and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones,

    2 And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there were very many in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry.

    3 And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord GOD, thou knowest.

    4 Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the LORD.

    5 Thus saith the Lord GOD unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live:

    6 And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live; and ye shall know that I am the LORD.

    7 So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone.

    8 And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered them above: but there was no breath in them.

    9 Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live.

    10 So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.

    11 Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts.

    12 Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel.

    13 And ye shall know that I am the LORD, when I have opened your graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves,

    14 And shall put my spirit in you, and ye shall live, and I shall place you in your own land: then shall ye know that I the LORD have spoken it, and performed it, saith the LORD.

      Land of Israel refers to the Catholic Church after the Coming of Christ.

        That’s a wild assumption.

        • Andy Sloan

          It is not an assumption at all. The words of St Paul make clear that the (new) Israel of God is the Church instituted by Christ. That Church,existing for 2000 years, is the One, Holy, Roman, Catholic and Apostolic Church. Protestantism is a sect, which makes of Christ a liar;

          1 John 2:19-20

          “They went out from us, but they were not of us.
          For if they had been of us, they would no doubt have remained with us; but that they may be manifest, that they are not all of us. But you have the unction from the Holy One, and know all things”

    RE: it is being reported that 41 percent of all Americans believe that “we are living in what the Bible calls the last days.”

    As demonstrated by Mark Dice’s videos on YouTube, most Americans are ridiculously ignorant of the world around them.

    I remember in 1990, when the Gulf War was on the horizon, it was widely believed that this was the end of the world. Supposedly it was all biblical — military forces from around the world gathering in the Mideast in fulfillment of prophesies, etc. Of course, as is obvious now, the “fun” was only just getting started.

    Here’s what people don’t want to hear: There’s not going to be an end that will wrap up everything. No spiritual figure will appear, the good won’t be rewarded, the evil won’t be punished, misery and misfortune will continue, and we’ll just have to continue to deal with it.

    RE: “For decades, God has been pleading with America to repent, but there has been no repentance.”

    I must have missed it. Was it on his web page? Did he say this while being interviewed on a TV talk show? When did “America” come off his lips? Was it when he was on the campaign trail to become president of the USA?

      Thank you for this nugget of truth surrounded by so much nonsense. This is what I also believe. The world will keep going and on and on. As it has in the past. There will come a day when technological advances of all nations reach a tipping point and we will eventually destroy ourselves and this planet. As has been done before by other generations and the places they lived.

      Your take on good not being rewarded and evil not being punished is equally accurate. That is why serial killers can go on murdering for 20, 30 or more years before getting caught (by a slip up). And many never get caught (just an example of how evil it seems is NOT punished).

      Same with parents who abuse their kids and then live until old age and die. Where is there punishment for the evil they did?

  • Pascal

    Jesus, you did a good job fooling so many people for so long. But a new prophet will indeed return to explain why so many people needed to be fooled and he will thank ”everybody” in name of the cosmos for doing their task perfectly.

    • Kim

      This makes no sense

      • Pascal

        It does because all people on earth did and still do exactly what they suppose to do… Unfortunately but also lukkily it was al brainwash introduced by monks wich came from the East.
        You will come to know that these old-wise men from about 6000 years ago told that first Gods and later a God ruled everything… but in their eyes God was nothing more than the cycles of the universe wich we and everything else obey… because we’re part of it. In their eyes everything was going perfectly and when they saw that people maked God something magical they knew this was also part of the perfection. So they used this to guide us with a hope pill and let us search for the truth until the bitter end. They saw it was necessary that we would grow to a human plaqeu on earth and to finally find the core of energy again (nucleair energy) so we would destroy the life on earth in an everything destroying war. It was/is necessary because in this cosmic cycle the earth needs the energy we make so she can keep turning her rounds around the sun for as long as possible… and this way the earth stays vital enough to get get through the last and biggest ice age in history. The earth but really everything in the expanding part of the universe is re-cycling of matter for as long as possible for and so the new life in the blackhole can grow and will be born perfectly again for the next cosmic cycle. It was al left to us but we didn’t and still don’t understand what there is written.The play that Jezus did was nothing more then to show us that the end of life on earth was near and that we would destroy ourselfs…That’s why he left us the cross of death and he let himself be nailed to it. It is for God (the cosmos) and so that everything including us would be born again in the next perfect cycle.
        This old-wise were true searchers and watchers and they found in nature that every cycle is equal because they are all born out of each other and only the biggest and the smallest cycle have found their way to eternity.
        So we are true servants in ”seeing blindness and hearing deafness” for the perfection and therefore… thankyou for beeing, we almost fullfilled our task.

    • Kim

      Don’t be so sure. You never know.

  • Vizar

    I would read the Bible carefully. Jesus proclaimed that ONLY the Father knows the Day of Judgement, no angel, no demon nor even Jesus knows the Day. Certainly no man or woman. Link that with the statements of Jesus that the End will come “as a thief in the night” (in other words expectantly and without fanfare) and I doubt we are in the End Time simply due to all the factors expressed. None of that is as a thief in the night.

    As civilizations have fallen all people believed their End Days had come and for them they had. Imagine Rome in the late Fifth Century or perhaps the Fall of the British Raj in India or the Inca or Mayan Empires. The earth is littered with the remains of thousands of civilizations and peoples, all now wiped out and fallen. Each had their own religion and worldview and each is now gone. Why do we, simply due to our technology think we are any different and better?

    God made it abundantly clear that one needs to be ready at anytime to meet Him and not look for signs and portents so as to time the Day. It will not work. You WILL be surprised, guaranteed, even Jesus will be as well. Is the world we know crumbling, perhaps, is the earth ending, I seriously doubt it. Is God about to end His creation, only the arrogant can answer yes or even perhaps.

    • Kim

      You’re right – no one knows that exact day. But Jesus also provided people with signs that would be clearly seen, to indicate where we are in time. We aren’t left totally in the dark-or else how could we prepare ourselves? You’re wrong about not looking to the signs Jesus clearly provided. He said “keep on the watch” and “watch for these things” all through the gospels. This isn’t unusual from a biblical standpoint.

      • Vizar

        I agree but scripture is ancient words and Jesus clearly said thus “But concerning that day or that hour, no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.” (Mark 13:32).

        It is clear to stop worrying about End Times and the world and live in harmony with God. Everything else is merely noise. This MIGHT be IT! It might not! Who cares, love your Father and carry on. Only evil will thrive in creating suffering for no righteous reason.

        • Kim

          Who is worrying? I think we live in very exciting times! Jesus said: hold your head high for your deliverance is near.

          It’s a great gift that Jesus provided his faithful followers with these specific signs of the last days. He never left his followers in the dark. If you are confused as to what time period we are living in, I’d say go back and read exactly what Jesus said. He said “keep on the watch”! Don’t get caught off guard and unprepared.

          • Vizar

            No argument Kim…you keep worrying and watching OK? Read Matthew 6:25-34 and Relax! As for Rome, it is called history Kim, what actually happened to the Roman Empire due to the Goths. It actually happened and, yes, there were really Many Christians there and I bet (God check me here) they thought their world was ending.

            To not be ” caught off guard and unprepared” as you say just live a righteous life now, right NOW. Leave the worry and circumstances to the Father, He has it covered so far more than anything you can do. Relax. Breathe.

            Unless…YOU don’t really believe in His Majesty! Then hunker down for the Apocalypse and Hell on earth. Me, I’m on the elevator out as I DO trust and believe.

          • jaxon64

            Your history is a bit skewed–it was the Visigoths ( Germanic peoples) who sacked the city of Rome which was still primarily pagan in its worship and beliefs ( as an aside, the citizens of Rome were so secure in their mindset of elitism that they could not even conceive that the barbarians at the gates had any chance at destroying them and their magnificence! Take note America as 100’s of millions of Islamic barbarians swear “death to America”)—Constantine who was the first Christian emperor actually was in Byzantium with his capital in ( what is now) Istanbul Turkey….

          • Vizar

            I respectfully disagree as the term “Goths” refers to All Germanic Peoples of that era including Alaric and the Visigoths. It was the Goths (Germans) who sacked Rome.

            I also note that Alaric was a Christian himself and ensured that Christian sites in the city remained largely safe from looting. However, the Christians in the Eternal City did not fare so well if they resisted.

            None of this has any bearing whatsoever now unless you believe that the world is about to “fall again” and you best be prepped to resist and survive.

            A better plan, don;t worry, seriously, don’t. Believe in God the Father and you WILL be OK. Trust me. Have no faith and then be ready to stand on your own, it will NOT go well for you.

          • G.

            1 Thessalonians 5:4

          • VigilanteCaregiver

            And 1 Timothy 5:8

          • Vizar

            Yes, but as we are playing Awana now…read and understand:

            Matthew 24:5-28

            We are all in this together but this verse has stood for almost 2000 years as a message to be watchful, but not alarmed. There will be wars, famines, and earthquakes in various places. As verse 8 states ” All these are but the beginning of the birth pains.”

            There have been wars, famines and earthquakes for the last 2000 years, some terrible but the Thief has still not come in the night.

            The point is simple, stop worrying about whether today or this era or our nation is the “time” and focus on being right with the Father and the rest is useless.

          • VigilanteCaregiver

            Your history is true also. Alaric was a Christian and did order the Christian Churches unharmed (some of the men didn’t obey and were punished later). However, Alaric died from disease brought on by malnutrition months after besieging Rome. Hardly anyone was farming or producing during those years.

          • Vizar

            Indeed, well put VigilanteCaergiver. Our world may indeed be ending as did the Western Roman Empire’s some 1600 odd years ago. If this is THE end of the world I do not know. Jesus doesn’t either. So I prepare by loving my God and, yes, putting in some food stocks and having skills to survive as best I can to do my Lord’s will as presented to me. I just don’t worry too much as my Father has my back.

          • VigilanteCaregiver

            Well said!

          • VigilanteCaregiver

            Your history is good: well researched.

            Could I add some more? Rome, at the time the Visigoths sieged the city, was so very destitute of food that during Gladiator matches, people in the stands would try to outbid each other for the “meat” of the murdered Gladiator!

            All the more reason to prep up.

            got any proof of that?

            Constantine was a great factor in the rise of Christianity, of course he did personally benefit as did the empire

          • justsayin

            You can tell them about Constantine, but they will not listen, nor are they willing to do the research themselves to find out the truth.

            Christians are a walking contradiction.

            Christianity like all other religions is a cult. It binds its members with fear of a god who will punish them if they dare question what they have been told.

            Fear that if they ever left their faith that they will be punished with death by their version of god.

          • VigilanteCaregiver

            Here’s what’s odd about Islamic terrorists. They’re targeting homosexuals (even Osama bin Laden’s last recorded message was about attacking the US because of tolerance of abortions and homosexuality) – they’re not targeting Mormons. I have no idea why. There was a lone wolf in Idaho that did; he was soundly condemned and even the Iranian mullah’s condemned him for it.

            So, I’m not wetting the holy garments over it. And you really are obsessed about my underwear, ain’t you?

          • Gay Veteran

            of course they’re targeting gays, like good little fundamentalists

            Do not get preparing confused with worrying.Some of us prepare, because we have been led to do so. Some of us live where we live, because, this is where we have been led to live. Many of us are not preparing, any more than our Grandparents did. If somehow a Christian who prepares, does not meet your standards. I am sorry, but I only work to meet the Lord’s standards.

          • VigilanteCaregiver

            “Many of us are not preparing, any more than our Grandparents did. If
            somehow a Christian who prepares, does not meet your standards. I am
            sorry, but I only work to meet the Lord’s standards.”

            Exactly, K!

            I have prepared, but I’m not part of the prepper movement. I do it as an extension of good home economics and it’s also part of my faith. Grow your own or buy when prices are low; use during bad seasons or when prices are high: it’s just good sense.

          • Vizar

            By your tone I suggest some contemplative prayer today. Nothing wrong with being prepared. Just do not expect that to save you in any way. Your only salvation is in one being, the Father.

          • K

            Salvation is through the Lord Jesus Christ alone. Food is for maintaining the body. In hopes of helping others through some of the hard times ahead. For me the last days is not just the tribulation. But also the time leading up to it. There could yet be some very hard times, before the tribulation.This is what I and many others prepare for.

          • Vizar

            I agree with you.

          • K

            Outstanding. Some come here to distract. But the core come here to read Michael’s articles, and exchange ideas. Perhaps we can learn things from each other.

          • Vizar

            I agree. I don;t wish to seem flippant in the face of our ugly world today. But I do trust in the Lord and our Father and that is pretty liberating. I don’t really worry all that much, what with WHO has our backs!

      • Good response!

        I’d be weary of this ‘Vizar’ poster. That person is advocating contradictory views.

        • Vizar

          No I am not Adam. Why sew controversy and dissension where there is none? Is this a competition?

          My position on life is simple, I am not arrogant enough to say I know whether we live in the End Times or not. The Father knows and only He. Do YOU disagree? I also believe being prepared for floods, famines, riots, etc is wise and prudent as anyone with half a wit would agree.

          But, I am not sweating in worry about it nor wondering really if the world is indeed crumbling because it is out of my hands. And I do not have to worry as my Father (and yours) has my back. He is in control so relax. If you don’t believe He has control then I suggest prayer.

          • Yeah, but you keep arguing a moot point: No one that’s responded to you is disputing that only the Father knows the day and the hour. What people are trying to tell you though, is that the Bible also states that there are signs to look out for that indicate how close we are to that time.

            You seemingly refuse to acknowledge this; and instead, keep repeating the same things you’ve been posting.

    • jaxon64

      I know that the cold of winter is coming. I do not know the “day or the hour of its coming” but I know the signs and recognize the season. I see leaves begin to change color and fall; plants grow seed pods instead of fruits and flowers; the very days are shorter as the sun rises later and sets earlier.
      You are correct in that only the Father knows “THE DAY”..yet we are told repeatedly, even by Christ Himself, the signs and warnings to look for as watchmen upon a tower so that we will not be caught unaware and unprepared.
      Maybe it is you who should re-read much of the bible–start with the olivet discourse and then the parable of the 10 virgins/bridesmaids and the oil lamps.
      PS: the examples you gave are a bit inconsistent I must point out ( respectfully I hope>) You see, several of your examples of human turmoil were before the first advent so are irrelevant for Christ’s second advent. Also you gave examples of “empires/civilizations” falling since Christ’s resurrection. This is true, yet not all of the conditions ( primarily the reformation of Israel) listed in the Bible had been established yet.
      example: we had not yet had global communications; a system for a global economy that no man might buy or sell unless he had a specific mark or identifier; people could not traverse the earth in a day or communicate across the planet instantaneously—reread Daniel and the parts about knowledge/technology and global travel. We did not have weapons technology capable of killing 1/3 of mankind with a single push of a button; the armies of the Far East did not have 200 million men available ( there were not even 200 million men on the planet in AD70); Rosh-the King of the North ( Russia) were uncultured tribes during the prophetic writings of Ezekiel and only now, for the first time in history are they properly allied with Persia ( Iran), Syria and Turkey ( Tubal and Gomer).
      Yes– human history is rife with risen and fallen “empires”, however never in the history of our planet have ALL of the preconditions been met. This is not to say that it may not be another 100 years or more–but we were told to look for the signs and be ready for His return.
      PS: The earth does not “end” at Christ’s return anyhow–nobody is claiming and “end of the world” scenario—just the encroaching Tribulation and finally the return of Christ the King!

      • Vizar

        Read the scriptures and look at the historical portents. Recall Romans were Christians as their great empire fell around them. An Apocalypse for them. Only the Father knows, no other, not you, not me, not Michael, not His Son, nor any angel including our Guardians, no one. The meaning is thus, forget trials and tribulations of everyday life, the news media, the press, politicians, nations and their evils and blogs and all others. Live in personal respect for God daily and carry on as IF there IS a tomorrow.

        “Keep God and Carry On!”

        • Kim

          Apocalypse means “revealing”. First u say read the biblical portents then you say ignore them. Your posts make no sense. There is no bible reference of the historic fall of Rome in the time of the Christian Romans. Are u talking about the destruction of Jerusalem and the temple? I’m confused.

          Anyway, the first century Christians never closed their eyes to reality. They knew that the destruction of the temple was coming, they just didn’t know what day. Why do u think they fled to the mountains and waited it out for four years? It’s called faith!

          • Vizar

            Read history Kim, the Father gave us a mind in His image. I don’t know where you worship but you need to learn the breadth of God’s Grace and wisdom. And, IF you really believe in Him, stop worrying so much.

            I have actually Seen my Angel, for real, and I would not lie here as My soul would be on the line. Relax. HE has it covered. Just believe and do as HE commands. Love each other and Love Christ and the WAY is open to you. I assure you.

      • Good post!

    • bob mack

      “A thief in the night” is rarely expected by people who have little to nothing but is always feared/expected by those who have much to lose. That is what surprises the poor when they are robbed and what causes the rich to arm/prepare themselves with security/alarms. The analogy IMO is that those wealthy in spirit will be vigilant, forewarned, and prepared for the coming whereas only those weak/without spiritual belief will be caught completely by surprise!

      • Vizar

        I believe the opposite. In such that IF you do actually believe you will not worry. That doe snot mean not prepare. Hurricanes, Storms, wars and yes, even the Apocalypse may and will come your way.

        But if you truly believe in the Rapture you need not worry. If NOT. The fear and prep, prep, prep. Yee of so Little Faith.

        It will make….NO…difference.

    • Mike

      Jesus is restored to the right hand of the Father following the resurrection (Trinity). I guarantee He knows the hour of His return following His ascension.
      1 Thess 5:2 says that the day of the Lord comes like a thief in the night while people are saying “peace and safety”. In verse 5:4 it says, But you, brothers are not in the darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief.
      This verse tells us (Christians) that we will go through the tribulation period and we will know Jesus is coming soon because will see the Antichrist and all of the other signs mentioned in the book of Revelation, etc. No pre-trib rapture, don’t be fooled.

      • Vizar

        “I guarantee He knows the hour of His return following His ascension.”

        That is a guarantee I cannot take given the Lord’s own words, “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone.”

        That said, the Bible also says it will be again as in Noah’s day upon His return and most will be caught totally unprepared and unaware. That I agree with as God said it and thus one must be right with their Father now. The end could be tonight, next month, next century but the timing is not important, the belief in the Father is.

    Yes we are living in the last days. I like to compare it to road signs: slippery when wet or “falling rocks”. People tend to ignore or blow them off and like to test these things. There are plenty of signs that clearly signal this event, though. It would be stupid to ignore them. That said, we will all know that it’s game over for the ways of this world when the collective world military (UN?) turns its attention and aggression on organized, institutional religion. It doesn’t seem like that could happen but at this point is anything really safe in this world? Watch for this.

  • Kim

    I always like to read Matthew 24:7 you will hear of wars and stories of wars but the end is not yet. nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom. . .

    This is the most misunderstood sign. It’s saying that wars and talk of war has always been the case. What would be different is when nations rise against each other in world or global war . This sign has already been fulfilled. Prior to 1918, the world did not experience global war. So here we are in 2015. Almost one hundred years later. We are very close to the end.

  • DJohn1

    When I read the Bible I look at it from the perspective of what we know now, not what they knew then(2,000 Years ago give or take).
    God defined who God is.
    I am the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end.
    I am that I am.
    At first this did not make a whole lot of sense to me.
    So when we talk about the end, what exactly are we talking about?
    Is it the end of the Universe as we know it?
    Or is it just the end of the old Earth and the old Heavens?
    Meaning God will establish us on a new Earth and new Heavens?
    God and Satan go way back in time.
    The oldest book of the old testament is not Genesis. It is Job.
    It gets more and more puzzling.
    Revelations describes an enormous number of strange events.
    Over and over again people have mistakenly thought we had reached the end of it all.
    Current reality is the Universe is enormous.
    Not one galaxy but an unknown huge number of galaxies filled with an enormous number of stars, solar systems, possibly life.
    Yet science now says it is running down. That it might all end in some sort of enormous consolidation of matter back into a singularity.
    We have two kinds of life. Immortal life and mortal life in the Bible.
    Angels with immortal lives that go on forever?
    But as Loretta Lynn says in her song: Our local lives are full of babies, diapers, and inconsequential things. Most of us do not worry about the Universe as a whole.
    So most of us try to do the best we can. A lot of us believe in the Christ, son of God, and the trinity of beings including a Holy Spirit that defies definition scientifically.
    To me the God we worship is a god of Space and Time with enormous intellect and abilities to be everywhere both past, now, and in the future.
    As to greeting the Jesus Christ when and if he ever returns in my lifetime, none of us really know what Jesus Christ actually even looks like. We have portrayals by artists.
    As to identifying him, that also is virtually not possible by us.
    So an imposter will fool many.
    The only chance at immortality in this body would be if Jesus, God, or the Holy Spirit granted it to me.
    So in the meantime, we attempt to follow the teachings of Jesus as laid forth in the Bible. When he does return, perhaps we will be gathered together as he rescues us from the tribulations to come.
    More likely we will meet him after this poor body dies as our souls are taken to him after death.
    Because only God, the alpha and omega, of this entire Universe knows when that will happen.

  • chriscas

    Obviously, we’re coming up on some kind of chastisement soon. At some point our Creator will say “Enough is enough”. But will it be at His hand or at ours (a la Hitler, Lenin, Nebuchadnezzar in 587 BC, etc)? I fear the time is fast approaching for this nation when God says “I’m not stopping this one”, and we perish from our own evil ways. Maybe some hacker succeeds in bringing down the power grid, or Iran pulls off some kind of Nuclear Pearl Harbor, or its Putin, or, or, or …….Kyrie Eleison, Christe Eleison

      That Turkish boy (not Syrian) drowned with his mom and sibling because they were illegally sailing for Europe so the dad (who survived) could get free dental care. They weren’t fleeing war and oppression – they were seeking free welfare.

          I explained who that Turkish boy is (not Syrian). A new report says his Dad was the coyote smuggling these invaders into Europe and the boat capsized.

          Involve genitalia? I already said my position is that your lot has well documented mental disorders that require treatment as there are also other well documented mental and psychological problems that does lead to high instances of violence and dangerous behaviors.

            Sympathy for the drowned boy. I have that as demonstrated earlier, but I don’t believe for a second that you; a guy who supports the mass murder of his own countrymen’s children for profit; has any sympathy for any child.

            And your comments about the war are absurd. We went to Afghanistan to get Al-Qaeda after 9/11 (was it really the reason; good enough as bin Laden did admit on tape who was involved – including himself), we went into Iraq with many other countries to enforce the UN resolutions against the Baathists. Then we had to elect your lot into office – which surrendered to terrorist after getting involved with Libya, Syria, and Yemen. If there’s one thing to be proven – never trust usurpers, insurrectionists, radicals, progressives, and leftists with protecting the United States: people overseas and at home die in mass numbers. We have ample evidence for this and plenty of proof that there is no remorse for these deaths. Only joy.

            And it’s good to see I pissed you off. When I can still bring out the hidden demon of a usurper into the public eye and prove who you really are – I’m doing a good job!

  • Human

    I find it interesting how the hand of God is moving at this time. I could never figure out how Germany, (Gomer), could join Turkey, Iran, Russia, et al. to fight against Israel. It makes sense when you look at all the Syrian refugees flooding into Germany. With the Pope going to the UN, and France preparring a motion in the security council for a Palestinian state we see the hand of God move. As soon as Obama gives the green light to this new country, the Palestinians will jump on Israel with both feet, along with the ISIS, and Hezbolla creeps. I see the fullfilment of Psalm 83 coming in weeks. This will also entangle Syria and Isiah 17 will be fullfilled. Of course Russia will be crazy mad about Damascus, and this will bring on the Gog, Magog war of Ezekel 38 & 39. How mighty the God we serve!

    Unfortunately, if these ARE “the last days” we are living in, shaking after shaking will do the opposite of causing repentance. Instead, man will shake his fist at God; ranting about His cruelty, not realizing it’s Satan’s cruelty toward humanity, not the God of the Bible! The Bible says Satan is god of this world and has been given much freedom for a short time in which to do his dirty work.

    Things certainly do look bad, but I believe they will become excessively so before Christ’s return. It will be so obvious, Christians won’t need to ask, “Are we in the last days?” During that time, non-believers will be cursing God and saying, “Where is the promise of His return?”

  • Mistanick

    When I first became a Christian in 1979 (36 years ago), I was told that we were living in the “last days”. Those came and went, but wanna be prophets with fortune teller ways are still are with us trying to foretell everyone else that “this is it”.

    Pride causes many to be ‘the one’s” to foretell the future and present times. Prophets have come and gone, they have said it all. Jesus told us that we would not know the time, so why do we continue to be “the one” who tells the last person? It is PRIDE. I have a calling, I, I, I, have been told to tell you this…… Pride, folks. Live your faith, be true to He who died for you, and keep your humility as the most important part of your person. Those who will come to Him will see Him through you, not he glass globe you like to touch.

    • Shane

      The Apostles said in their epistles: the time is at hand, the day of the Lord is near, Jesus himself said when you see all these things look up; around two thousand years ago. So how much more now are we to remain steadfast, two thousand years later? It’s Pride that causes one to be contentious when there is no need to be contentious. Our faith is to be lived by the word, and the word tell’s us to watch and pray.

      • justsay

    There is still events that must be fulfilled before the end of the age, not the end of time…the Jewish year is about to change to 5776…man has not completed his time on this planet which 6000 years out 7000. God is precise with his timing, one day in his eyes is a thousand years. Slow down and use wisdom. Fear is ruling the many…with the devil & his minions are authors of confusion. For he knows his days are short, but he doesn’t want to be the only one in hell, so he constantly ruling chaos in the world and wants you to join him.

        A dinosaur and a dragon are the same things namely big reptiles. And these scary things can still be found in Indonesia: the komodo dragon.

        • Gay Veteran

          • Emery Richards

            Less would refute the scriptures by a LONG shot.

          • Gay Veteran

            ok, so how old is Earth?

          • Emery Richards

            Creation. The planet’s coming into existence is recounted in the Bible with the simple statement: “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” (Ge 1:1) Just how long ago the starry heavens and the earth were created is not stated in the Bible. Therefore, there is no basis for Bible scholars to take issue with scientific calculations of the age of the planet. Scientists estimate the age of some rocks as being three and a half billion years, and the earth itself as being about four to four and a half billion or more years.

            Since the last “creative day” is over 7,000 years, one can only guess as to the Earth’s age. Since it is of no concern from a scriptural standpoint, I don’t really concern myself with it’s age. I realize that those of “sects” of Christendom claim 7,000 years, or even 6,000 years. Since the scriptures say pretty clearly, and repeatedly, that “sects” of Christendom are false, works of the flesh, and Babylon the Great, I take no stock in what ANY of them say. I do know that God opposes all such religions, pagan or Christendom, and He did say He will destroy all of them, which destruction will signify the beginning of the great tribulation.

    I think most humans have become complacent. What amounts to a short amount of time to god, equals an extremely long period for humans.

  • RJ

    If the US ever does collapse I think starvation and disease will be the least of our worries.

    Rather it will be the religious fanatics we will have to fear because they will try and spread their puritanical repentance B.S. to people by force if necessary. They will bring their brand of justice, righteousness and revenge to all those they believe contributed to the downfall of their so called once great country.

    It will be the dark ages like none have ever imagined. A terrible time that will be talked about by future generations as a calamity and blight on humanity.

    I know this because not one christian every mentions the true reason this country is going down. Not one christians has assigned the blame to the true puppet masters behind the scenes.

    Instead they blame regular people for their “immorality”. When in actuality it is the ones at the very top who have no morality. They are the ones not constrained by the laws they created for us. They are not constrained by fear of punishment for their actions. They are the ones who are to blame for all of the suffering they have brought to this country and other nations and their people.

    The evil that has been done in the name of America is beyond redemption.

    Yet christians only judge each other for their own failings as human beings. Remember while we may all not hold to the same standards of purity we are still all constrained by morality and consequences.

    Those of the old and ancient inbred bloodlines are constrained by neither morality nor consequences.

  • It’s amazing that this article even goes so far as to quote the passage re “For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many””while not realizing that that is exactly what the anti-Christ Jews have done (denying Christ). The so-called Christians have in effect given away their birthright that passed from the physical Jews to them Rom 2:28-29. You are all serving the anti-Christ nation of Israel right now! But you are too spiritually blind to see it. You have repeated the Esau effect for a feel good bowl of soup. You talk all day long about preparation here in this physical world but have -not- prepared your very souls..

  • A concerned one

    We can clearly see that this world is at the end of it’s “rope” The Bible clearly shows that mankind is not for “the law and order of God at all”. Rather mankind has from the beginning rejected God’s way, in favor of their own way. The way of this world and condition of this world is the direct result. In a future time God will, according to the Bible, intervene in the affairs of mankind and stop all the insanity of man’s way. We humans at that point will see clearly, then, that Gods way is the only way to peace on earth. It is called “The Kingdom of God” and is the message that The messiah brought to mankind. When he returns he will set up that Kingdom .

    Am I afraid? No, not a bit. I know who will protect me, My Savior and Lord, Jesus. I feel very sorry for people who know who he is, but do not accept him. Matthew Chapter 7, start with verse with verse 13, read from verse 13 through verse 23. Few find the strait gate, and narrow way to life. For wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leads to destruction, and many enter in there at. How many people who call them selves Christians, then when they vote they vote against Christian principles.? How many people who call themselves Christians then twist the scriptures to fit their own life styles instead of changing their life styles as much as they can to what the scripture tells us? We have a sinful nature that Jesus says we should try to over come. You, me, anyone, can not over come that sinful nature, with out accepting Jesus and asking him to for give our sins. When that trumpet sounds, and it will, I know where I will go. And that is because of the Grace tat Jesus has given me. I will serve, the best I can, the light. Never the Dark.

    • iris

      I ain’t sceert, either. Jesus says that the demons believe the gospel and tremble, because even though they know the gospel to be the truth, they will not receive it, because they do not want to obey or glorify God. But even the demons serve God, although they serve Him unwillingly. He always wins.

    After all, William Miller predicted the world would end and no one much believed him. He predicted in 1843 there would be a great sign in sky and, as if on queue, the Great Comet of 1843 just happened to arrive. Suddenly plenty of people now believed him. Yet the world didn’t end.

    Yes, we ARE living in the last days. In fact, we are at the END of the last days. Jesus was enthroned in 1914 as the scriptures teach, and all the signs of his presence have been fulfilled quite completely. that means the Gentile times have ended, and the tribulation is just about upon us. When Christendom is attacked by the nations (U.N.) then it has begun. When the U.N. attacks the REAL Christians, God’s people (those who only believe the scriptures and do the ENTIRE will of God and are part of NO “sect” of Christendom or any other religion of man), then the battle of Armageddon happens, and all will be eliminated in an instant, except God’s people. There are only about 8 or 9 million of them who will be protected and survive, the rest will be permanently dead forever. The scriptures are pretty clear on all of these points.

    Suppose hypothetically that god would exist;
    -Why would he have blessed America only?
    -Why not the whole world?
    -Why do have the Americans than the right to feel superior?
    -Why do the authorities of America, the right to everyone in the world to eavesdrop? Especially the Kings and Presidents of Europe, and other continents.
    -Why do they have the right to say, the largest and the best continent?
    -Why are they sure to know, and to know everything better?
    -Why should they even monuments from other continents away, in order to be able to place in America?
    -Why is it a include all kinds of nationalities together, which at the time were doing to America, to escape from condemnations of the legal system in other continents
    -why they had the right to a continent that was held by the Indians, which expel and kill and then to lock in many camps?
    -Why do they poor diet invented? Who then was taken over by just about all over the world?
    -Why did they slaves to their continent met to mistreat them, some to kill, and they as inferior to find?
    -Why does America just himself; Oh so fantastic in everything they think and do?

    They are finally, but a people of other continents together, from other continents want to dominate, while they themselves come from.
    Without the European Columbus Amerika dis not extisted…..
    -Why????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

    Jesus Christ has already come for a second time, if you all truly want to find the truth about things in the bible that we truly don’t understand I highly recommend you to search for the nearest church called Zion Church of God World Mission Society! The fact that there are plenty of anti Christ who already exist in this earth means that there must already be the true Second coming Christ. In order for there to be a fake anything in this world the real one has to already exist. Please, everyone if you would like to learn more things please feel free to email me mfelipe@ramapo.edu
    God bless you all so much.

    Hosea 4: 1 – 14
    “There is no faithfulness, no love, no acknowledgement of God in the land, there is only cursing lying and murder, stealing and adultery, they break all bounds and bloodshed follows bloodshed. Because of this the land mourns and all who live in it waste away, the beasts of the field and the birds of the air and the fish of the sea are dying. But let no man bring a charge, let no man accuse another, for your people are like those who bring charges against a priest. You stumble day and night and your prophets stumble with you, so I will destroy your mother (earth). my people are destroyed through lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also reject you as my priests, because you have ignored the law of your God. I also will ignore your children. The more the priests increased, the more they sinned against me, they exchanged their glory for something disgraceful. They feed on the sins of my people and relish their wickedness. And it will be like people, like priests. I will punish both of them for their ways and repay them for their deeds. They will eat and not have enough, they will engage in prostitution but not increase, because they have deserted the LORD…….a people without understanding will come to ruin.” Also Isaiah and Jeremiah and Haggai tell us all about the 200,000,000 numbered army invading from the North), and a wind will blow from the East. Take a look at China and Britain? foxes and snakes. Russia siding with the modern day King of Assyria (Syria,) Iraq (Babylon of old on the map,) and Iran (Persia) of old. Stand at the crossroads and ask for the ancient paths and walk in them! Shalom
