When I read the news on Google or Fox News website or even listen to the news on TV, it saddens me but it also gives me hope. Why would all of the bad news give me hope? Because it tells me that the appearance of our Savior, Jesus Christ, is not very far away! There are so many things happening around the world and in our country that follow the prophecies in the Bible until it would be crazy not to be looking for Him in the clouds.
The prophecies that are in God’s Word tell of all kinds of diseases and wars and uprisings and political problems that will be happening in the world around us just before He comes to take the church to Heaven. Life on Earth is going to be much worse when the church is taken away so I hope that many will seek to know Jesus soon and follow Him until that day comes. I don’t think it will be very far in the future. All of the “global warming” scenarios that we hear in the news will likely never happen or they will happen due to what will happen during the Tribulation.
The signs that Jesus spoke of to His disciples and other prophecies in Daniel and Ezekiel tell of this time. Of course, God didn’t give us a date or a year that this would be happening but with everything that is going on around us and the signs in the heavens like the lunar eclipse this month and the annular eclipse in June, I believe, we are closer to the end of the age now than we ever have been.
God cares for all of humanity but He knows who will follow Jesus and who will not. I pray for all who read these posts of mine. Please give your heart to Jesus. Seek Him out in Scripture and pray that your heart will be open to accepting Him as your Savior. Our time is quickly coming to a close and whenever the church is taken up, the next seven years will be far worse than it is today. Seek out a Bible-teaching church and pastor, one that doesn’t water down or adds “human wisdom” to God’s Word. Pray for wisdom and guidance while you are reading the Bible so God can show you the message that you need today.
