Preparing for the glorious return of Christ!

“But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only. But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark..... Matthew 24:36-38

There are so many obvious *signs of the times* it's difficult to know where to start! But one miraculous event in particular tells us how close we are to the return of Christ: THE 1948 REBIRTH OF THE NATION OF ISRAEL.

Israel has been called God's "prophetic timepiece" by many students of the bible.

Wandering among the nations for the last 2,000 years, God has gathered His chosen people back to the land He set aside for them {and only them}. The relationship between the Lord and His people is complicated but He never turned His back on them as some would accuse. If He had rejected the Jews due to seasons of rebellion & unbelief then we Gentiles can likewise kiss salvation good-bye because we've ALL sinned against Him .... we've all rejected Him at one time or another. Every person on Earth falls equally short {make that WAY short} of God's standard of perfection. Only the Grace of Christ can fix the problem!

             YESTERDAY, TODAY, AND
          PEOPLE WILL ALWAYS BE  > > > > 

In a nutshell, a remnant of the Hebrew people will cry out to their Messiah, the Christ, as He returns visibly in the clouds to rescue Israel from the persecution and death she had suffered in the previous 7 years at the hands of a world dictator the scriptures call "the Antichrist", a political genius, worshiped by the entire world, who will allow himself to be controlled by Satan himself.

At the present time Israel is surrounded by vicious enemies bent on the annihilation of every Jewish person on earth. It's a plan hatched in hell by demonic forces dedicated to achieving their dark goal.

"It shall be in that day that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem. And I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look on Me whom they pierced. Yes, they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son, and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn." -- Zechariah 12:9-11


TECHNOLOGY >> We have gone from horses to space travel in only 3 generations. Revelation 13 predicts that the Antichrist will cause every person on earth to receive a "mark" that will enable them to buy and sell .... the person who refuses will be executed.

Computer technology not available even 5 decades ago now makes this frightening prophecy entirely possible with tiny RFID implants into the human body. Instant access to every detail of our financial information by one wave of the hand over a scanner. The technology itself isn't evil but it will be used for evil purposes by the last human government before Christ returns.

THE BREAKDOWN OF THE U.S.A. >> America isn't mentioned prophecy. Something happens to prevent her from being a major player on the world stage at the end of the age.                                          

Like many European countries, America is heading for a collapse on many levels including economic, moral, and spiritual. The bible says Israel will stand completely alone and friendless as the nations prepare to attack God's people. America has always supported & defended Israel but that is changing ... especially now that she has elected a "messiah-like" president with a Muslim background in Barack Hussein Obama. The God of Abraham will lift His hand of blessing from any nation that comes against Israel. He will allow that nation to crumble into dust. This appears to be happening to us.


In the 1960s the courts took prayer and bible study out of our schools, replacing God with secular humanist teachings. Is it any mystery why drugs and sexual immorality exploded a few years later among "the baby boomers"?

Then in 1973 a landmark legal victory, Roe vs Wade, opened the floodgates to the murder of preborn infants in the name of "choice". To date abortion is responsible for 50 million deaths. Now that the extremely liberal Barack Obama is President we will see all abortion restrictions lifted including protections for full term and newborn babies. This man voted "no" 4 times on the Illinois Born Alive Infant Protection Act. Imagine the cold heart of a person who supports such a barbaric act.

And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.
-- Matthew 24:12

You know our country has lost its soul when millions of Americans turn a blind eye to these atrocities while celebrating the election of evil leaders. Lord help us.

If you're over 30 you certainly remember when boys only married girls -- two guys or two gals getting hitched was unthinkable. In a relatively short time a very organized and powerful homosexual agenda has been force fed to the world through every means of communication possible. Sadly, many heterosexuals have bought into this lie in the spirit of "tolerance".

"But I know of many happy & fulfilled gay people who don't want to change.
I believe them when they insist they were born that way" is an often heard quote these days.

Well, let's take a look at God's view on this subject:

.....who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due. -- Romans 1:25-27

It couldn't be any plainer yet people -- both gay and straight -- STILL deny, twist, or spin their own meaning to that scripture. They're treading on dangerous ground.

God had specific plans and purposes in mind when He created the glorious human body. One man -- one woman in Marriage. We'd be wise to listen to Him rather than those who have chosen to ignore His warnings. The good news is that anyone struggling with this issue can find help by crying out to the "counselor" who sits on the throne of Heaven. Don't be afraid .... He is all ears and waiting for you to come to Him!

~ Isaiah 9:6 ~
For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace

UFO DECEPTION >> Strange crafts in the sky have been reported for centuries but since the late 1940s these sightings have increased to epidemic levels. Many credible people claim to have been kidnapped by beings from these crafts and held for experiments. So what does the invasion of "little green men" have to do with bible prophecy and the return of Christ?

Well, when the Lord suddenly takes all Christians --- living and dead--- to Heaven in the Rapture it's plausible that this mass disappearance of human beings will be blamed on UFOs. Satan has most likely been behind this clever deception all along; providing the perfect explanation for those who are left behind to endure the Tribulation.

How could Satan and his minions accomplish this? Why would God allow it?

God is allowing Satan a certain amount of latitude to "do his thing" in these last days because it will force us to choose between good and evil, Heaven and Hell. It may sound harsh but anyone "sitting on the fence" is lost and destined for Hell. There is no middle ground.

The Devil is REAL. He is responsible for all the misery in this world and is out to destroy you & your loved ones any way possible. He is working hard to bury God's truth because his time is short and he knows it. Don't allow the "father of lies" to deceive you with false christs or believing ungodly things the world calls good.

And for this reason God will send them strong delusion,
that they should believe the lie...
2 Thessalonians 2:11

It is now 2010 and we Christians are still here, waiting patiently for the greatest event in history, outside the resurrection of Christ, our Blessed Hope, the Rapture There is still time for you to choose the Kingdom of God. Simply acknowledge your sins and ask Jesus to forgive you with a sincere heart.  I pray you'll do
this today!

"Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will
keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the
whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth."
-- Revelation 3:10

That's a personal promise from the King of Kings to YOU! This awesome scripture is describing the Rapture of the Church --a glorious event that will soon take place. It could happen at any
time so don't be left behind!

The downward spiral of mankind is EXACTLY the way bible prophecy warns it will be before God is forced to judge this sin-sick, unrepentant world. Acceptance of Jesus Christ's sacrifice on the cross is the only way we can escape the coming judgments, aka "the Great Tribulation".

Yes, God is loving and good but He is also just.. Allowing evil to go on forever was never part of His plan. No matter how "good" we are we were born into sin and thus are not worthy of Heaven. Isn't it fantastic how the Creator has given us the free gift of cleansing we so desperately need?

The door to Eternal Life is wide open.  Will you walk through it?

"Oh come on, they've been predicting the *end of the world* for centuries.    What makes this generation so different?"

An excellent question with some very specific answers. Something to keep in mind is that the world will never cease to exist. God is going to end the present world system which is full of corruption and rebellion toward His holy ways. After that, Jesus Christ will take over and run this world in perfect righteousness and order! This is something to look forward to with great joy, not fear!

Now, back to the reasons we can know for certain we are in the LAST of the last days.
