  • Indeed there a signs all around us that the end may be approaching. Jesus compared the world in the last as “a woman in labor” who has contractions or “birth pangs” closer and closer together. Contractions being distresses such as floods, famines, earthquakes, storms, plagues, wars, and general tribulations occurring closer and closer together with more and more intensity. So the end could be very near, or it still could be a ways off. God only knows. The bigger question for all of us is; are we ready now? Jesus Christ is our hope. He who died for our sins so that we could avoid the Eternal wrath of God. We need to receive Jesus as Lord and Savior, and turn away from sin. Follow the Lord as He leads, and abide in Him. Then we will know His peace and assurance of eternal life. God Bless

    Jesus died for us so that our sins may be forgiven now on the basis of his ransom sacrifice. The benefits of that ransom sacrifice will also be applied to mankind during Jesus’ upcoming millennial and messianic rule over mankind from God’s kingdom or heavenly government (Daniel 2:44; Matthew 4:17).

    That application will put an end to man’s inherited sin and death (Romans 5:12) so that man will finally be able to live forever on earth under splendid conditions (Isaiah 11:1-9; Revelation 21:1-4). Then man will know real peace on earth as he was always meant to enjoy.

    No, the church as a whole is not ready. It is deep in apostasy. Jesus said, ‘many will be called, few will be chosen’. My Father, a man who loved the Lord is now in a home for Alzheimer’s. We met the sister of another ‘guest’ & she was quite the drinker. We got to talking about our churches we all went to, our Pastors, community involvement, etc. After a Bday party for one of the other ‘guests’ she said she was going to meet some friends and the Pastor of her church for drinks. My mom and I just looked at each other, she said ‘oh, I’ve been drunk with our Pastor more than once!. From the amount of wine she consumed before she had to ask for a ride downtown there was no reason to disbelieve her. We are in the days of Noah, eating drinking, marrying, giving in marriage, ……….I’m not perfect, but I live a repentant lifestyle, if I realize I’ve done something that wasn’t right, I confess, repent & move on. I read my bible, pray and ask God to count me worthy to go back…
