The End Times are Coming Nearer

If you believe in the literal nature of the Bible then you must be asking yourself if we are living in the Last Days of the world and is Jesus about to return and remake it. I believe the times are growing ripe based on the following observations:

  • the world of language has come full circle from the division at Babel to a single international language that again ties the whole world together through the internet
  • population is at a perilously high level for the health of the planet – it really cannot sustain any more living organisms due to shortages of fresh water, food (famines)  and a clean environment
  • the global spread of evils like terrorism, Islam and the LGBT (God destroyed all men except Noah for world wide sin and he destroyed specific cities that had been completely overcome by homosexuality )
  • the rise of Islam – the great religion of Satan
  • the decay of the atmosphere due to overpopulation and uncontrolled CO2 emissions – warming leading to rising ocean levels spilling over land barriers set by God (God promised to never again destroy the world by water) – the destruction of the ozone layer protecting our planet
  • a restless earth, ocean and sun (rising CO2 due to men’s activities = melting ice = greater water pressure on techtonic plates = more earthquakes)
  • the decay of organized religion and the decline of faith
  • the advent of an atheistic world and governments
  • the potential to annihilate our planet with nuclear weapons
  • the world is in a constant state of war
  • the Gospel having been carried to every corner of the globe – we are becoming a post-Christian world with fewer and fewer people to carry the gospel to
  • the complete scientific discovery of what man is capable of finding out about the universe – trapped as he is between an uncross-able barrier of interstellar space and a microcosm of indivisible particles
  • a personal hope is that the melting of the glaciers will reveal the remains of Noah’s ark (if there are any remains) which would be a great faith builder to the few faithful and a stumbling block to the faithless
  • it has been almost 2000 years from Jesus crucifixion and Resurrection (33 AD) – God seems to work in meaningful numbers in the Bible
  • the so called Biblical scholars who have perverted the Bible with their caricatured portrayal of Jesus (IE The Jesus Seminar)
  • hate for Christians is growing daily

Jesus could return today, or a 100 or a 1000 years from now – but we who believe in Him are just called to Watch, Work and Pray.
