ARE YOU READY FOR THE END TIMES

The end time’s signs tell us it is getting much closer. America has been a peaceful nation trying to defend the rights of freedom to everyone on earth. Most Americans, in the past tried to live according to God’s commandments. For years we have been blessed and prospered. There has never been a nation like us. As a world power we are losing our influence. America has allowed non-believers to dictate how we are to live. In general, Americans no longer fear God, worship Him or follow His ways. We have become a much divided nation that Scripture says cannot stand. We are in the beginning of failing.

Read or listen to the news and we are less powerful in foreign affairs. In addition, we are turning America into a socialistic government. Review what has happened in the past four years in America and you can see we are heading in an unfamiliar direction. There has been a 20% gain in Social Security disability checks and we now have 8.94 million receiving $140 billion from disabilities. That is a 29% increase in payouts. We have a fifty percent gain in food stamps. There are 46.5 million Americans declared living in poverty. You can see we are creating a new class, dependent on government and not God, who will vote for a larger government and higher taxes on those who work.

In the past year, temporary employment has increased 57%. We have the largest amount of part-time workers ever. If we counted the number of people willing to work but are not seeking employment, unemployment would be approximately 13% instead of 7.3%. Nevada has the highest rate at 9.3%.

Many of us believe for the end times to happen, America must continue losing its influence in the world. In addition, we need to fail financially. We would then be unable, financially, to intervene in keeping the world at peace. We are seeing the end-time signs that the prophets and Christ told us to look for.

We are told that there will be World War III. It will start around the Euphrates River. Turkey, Syria, Iraq and the edge of Iran is the location where the last war will be fought.
Revelation 9:14 – 15 – “It said to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, “Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates.” And the four angels who had been kept ready for this very hour and day and month and year were released to kill a third of mankind.” That means approximately 2.2 billion people will die.

Two signs tell us when the last seven years will occur. Peace achieved between Palestine and Israel in order for the Jewish Temple to be built. The Temple Mount will be under the direction of the United Nations. Once the Temple has been built and the Jewish begin animal sacrifices the Anti-Christ will put a stop to the sacrifice. He will take over and the war begins and in 3 ½ years Jesus returns to stop it or all mankind would be destroyed. This will be a time worse than anything we have ever seen or will ever see again.

Matthew 24:15 – 19 – “So when you see standing in the holy place ‘the abomination that causes desolation,’ spoken of through the prophet Daniel—let the reader understand—then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. Let no one on the housetop go down to take anything out of the house. Let no one in the field go back to get their cloak. How dreadful it will be in those days for pregnant women and nursing mothers!”

Genesis 6:5 & 12 – 14 – “The Lord saw how great the wickedness of the human race had become on the earth, and that every inclination of the thoughts of the human heart was only evil all the time. God saw how corrupt the earth had become, for all the people on earth had corrupted their ways. So God said to Noah, “I am going to put an end to all people, for the earth is filled with violence because of them. I am surely going to destroy both them and the earth. So make yourself an ark of cypress wood; make rooms in it and coat it with pitch inside and out.

The 6th chapter of Revelation predicts there will come a time when the world will be faced with starvation, famine, sickness and economic disaster. There will be sickness that antibiotics and drugs will not prevent. Bacteria can infect people with hundreds of diseases and there are chemical agents that could destroy the entire population. There was a time in history that typhus killed over 200 million people over a period of time. Yet we continue to live as they did in the days of Noah.

There will come a time when we will witness global disasters. Volcanoes will erupt and the earth will shake. Isaiah wrote in 24:19 – “The earth is broken up, the earth is split asunder, the earth is violently shaken.” (NIT) On December 28, 2004 the U. S. geological Survey reported that the island of Sumatra shifted to the southwest 120 feet as a result of a 9.0 earthquake. Yahoo news reported the December 28 earthquake made the earth wobble on its axis and permanently altered the regional map. That earthquake was equal to 23,000 atomic bombs the size dropped on Hiroshima, Japan. December 16, 1811 islands in the Mississippi actually sank. Theologians predict that the earthquake Revelation describes is far greater than the 9.0. Some wonder if these gigantic earthquakes predicted could shake the earth back on its axis to where it was before the flood when people lived almost 1000 years.

Then comes panic! People lose all hope and can find no place to hide. Lawlessness is evident in every country on earth. There is a new game where teens sucker-punch strangers. It is catching the attention of Americans who love violence as do our kids. Those who thought they were safe could find no place to hide. It will be amazing that after all of these events there will be a number of people who still will not fear God. Like the Egyptians in Moses times they will have hearts as hard as shoe leather and not penetrable by the Holy Spirit. What worse can our children do?

A worldwide anti-God movement will continue to exist even though they begin to realize there is a God. This will include the teachings of situation ethics (no absolute rules), moral freedom and self-sufficiency (man is not accountable to anyone), sexual permissiveness (everything is acceptable, same sex-marriages and homosexuality included), and death education (there is no life after death). This is what prophesized will happen during the one-world government and the one-world religion. Hasn’t it already started? Isn’t our administration promoting this permissiveness?

God knows what is going on in America and the world. Chances of America ever recovering to the land of blessing and prosperity from God are limited. God is allowing it all to play out and it might be His time to put an end to the world’s immorality. At least the signs are indicative to be the end for most and the beginning for those whose names are in the Lamb’s Book of Life.
