Better enjoy it now because it won’t last for much longer

With the election over, I personally believe that the stage has been set for the return of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

He said in Mathew 24, “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but my Father only.”

He said, “So when you see all these things (signs), know that it is near even at the door. Here are the signs that bring about the return of Christ, many will come in his name, saying, I am Christ, and will deceive many.

“Wars and rumors of wars, nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines, pestilences, and great earthquakes in various places. All nations will hate Israel for God’s namesake, and many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. False prophets will rise up and deceive many, and lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.”

There are people now as in the past that claim to be God or Jesus and have led their followers to commit suicide, Jim jones is one example.

Wars, civil wars, uprisings, car and suicide bombing, along with genocide is taking place in the Middle East and Africa. Bird and Swine Flu, West Nile virus, flesh eating bacteria, wasting disease in deer are just some of the pestilences raising their ugly heads along with other diseases that we thought were gone.

Droughts and floods have caused our food supplies to dwindle and farmers to sell off their cattle and other livestock because of feed shortages. This will cause famine not only here but all over the world.

Since 2000, earthquakes have increased in strength and frequency, now there is one or more a month in just about every part of the world. Iran is rushing to obtain a nuclear weapon so they can wipe Israel off the face of the earth, these words were spoken by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Israel is between a rock and a hard place because if it uses military force to destroy the reactors, Iran will shut down oil production and gas will go to $10 or more a gallon. This will affect the whole world and cause food shortages and riots making Israel hated by all nations.

Now, lawlessness has made the puzzle complete for it is responsible  for parents murdering their children, husbands and wives murdering each other. Strangers walking into shops, places of work, schools, and other establishments just to murder as many people as they can. Theft, child abuse, drug use, assault, violence, and breaking the law of man or God is the final straw.

Jesus said in Luke 21, “Now when these things begin to happen (all at once), look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near. Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and stand before the Son of Man.”

Sinners, enjoy your life while you can, because this world is about to fall.

  • Happy Easter

    For the world’s more than 2 billion Christians, Easter is the day that defines their faith.
    The exact date of Christ’s resurrection is unknown, and even the precise locations of his crucifixion and burial are uncertain. This hasn’t stopped some people from saying they know the answer to these questions and others from trying to find out for themselves, or simply arguing about it.

  • Where to look Where to look

    Drive anywhere in Maryland and it seems there is one highway construction project after another. While it is good to see our roads and bridges being upgraded, it can be nerve-wracking for anyone traveling a long distance.
