In one day of news:
I have noticed that earthquake news usually receive very little in terms of comments or discussion, but this generation is unprecedented in terms of the number of quakes and the severity of quakes, and earthquakes in "diverse places" was just as important as the other signs we watch.
Take a look at these two 'snapshots' of worldwide quakes just today and note the diversity in location and the sheer number of quakes:
And these news stories:
WARS AND RUMORS OF WAR
THE DECLINE OF THE U.S. - Preparations for a world government
All NATIONS ALIGNED AGAINST ISRAEL
UN Chief Sides With Palestinians: "All Israeli Settlements Are Contrary To International Law And Prejudice
By looking at the above headlines, keep in mind, this is a single day of news and the links above were done 'at a glance'. A more detailed probe of today's news would have been far more comprehensive.
If such news were reviewed over the period of a week, the volume would be prohibitively high to read in one sitting. In fact, on a daily basis, I usually have to delete many articles simply due to volume.
We are immersed in signs every day - they are abundant and easy to find. Jesus informed us of these signs and He intended for us to see these signs.
And what did Jesus say - what instructions did He offer when we see these signs?
"When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift your heads, because your redemption is drawing near"
"Even so, when you see these things happening, you know that the kingdom of God is near"
This is simple logic.
We are not only immersed in the signs, but these "generational signs" began in the WWI era, and we are therefore approaching the very end of this generation.
Therefore, the obvious conclusion is the fact that Jesus will be returning very soon.
The Apostle Paul also gave instructions for us in these last days:
"...to wait for His Son from heaven, whom He raised from the dead - Jesus, who rescues us from the coming wrath"
(1 Thessalonians 1:10)
And from Jesus Himself:
"Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come upon the whole world..."
He will come for His church first:
"For the Lord Himself will come down from heaven with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.
After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever."
(1 Thessalonians 4:16-18)
"Therefore encourage each other with these words"
(1 Thessalonians 4:18)
"Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing"
(1 Thessalonians 5:11)
The logic here is pretty simple isn't it?
1) We are in "that generation" and an analytical view of the 'data' makes that point abundantly clear.
2) We are approaching the very last days of this generation.
3) We are very close to the beginning of the Tribulation - all signs point to that.
4) Therefore, the logical conclusion is that Jesus will be coming very soon for His Bride, the Church.
Maranatha! Our Lord Comes!
