With everything that is going on in the world and in America too, I would say yes we are. How close are we to that day when the church is taken to heaven? Only God knows that day and hour. If you have ever read the books of Daniel and Revelation then the news today sounds almost like it is following a script from a movie. Maybe not word for word but in those two books of the Bible, God lays out the order of things which are happening right now. He told this to Daniel when Israel was taken captive into Babylon over 2500 years ago. Jesus told His disciples in Matthew 24 about the way the world would be near the end of the age and John wrote down the book of the Revelation about 2000 years ago. Yet, if you read these passages and the chapters containing them, even with the images that many people have trouble with, you can see the pestilence and wars and economic hardships and weather patters going out of control in all sorts of places.
If you know Jesus as your Savior, the Holy Spirit will open your eyes to all of these so that you can discern what is happening around us and around the world. If you don’t know Jesus as your Savior then I suggest that you need to seek Him out as your Savior…soon! His appearance could come at any moment and if you are not taken up with the church then you will be living through the Tribulation spoken of in the prophecies that I mentioned earlier. Life on Earth is going to be much worse than it is now once the church is taken up. As Jesus told His disciples, “these are the beginnings of birth pains” right now, so you can imagine how bad it will get afterward.
I pray that all who read this post already know Jesus as your Savior but if you don’t, please don’t wait long. Seek Him while He can be found tonight in the Bible or at a Christian friend’s house. Please make sure that you are or soon will be His before the Trumpet sounds and millions of Christians leave this world for our eternal home. After the church is taken up, there will be an economic crash that will hit every nation on Earth so hard that no amount of printed money will be worth the paper it is printed on. The food shortages will hit soon after and there will be riots in the streets because of the lack of necessary things like water, electricity, and jobs too.
Don’t wait, look for Jesus as your Savior tonight. I pray that you accept Him as your Savior and I will see you in Heaven one day soon.
