So, you know, business as usual on the planet Earth.
As far as prophecy goes, that's like predicting that there will be people, eating food and drinking beverages. Somewhere. In the vicinity of the prophecied activity.
But these signs- they are now! (Well, sure, they are always.)
This is just another strange event...I am constantly in awe by the pure reluctant acceptance of the general populace to the signs around us. I have discussed the earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes, pestilences, turmoil in the Middle East and the state of Israel to just about anyone who will talk to me about it and it seems they always come back with the same answer.... It has always been like this! We just didn't have the technology to realize it. It makes me sad that people are just so blind to what is happening. I want people to get right with God to turn back to him. However, it seems that the ME society has finally taken over and they have no room for our Creator! I wish I knew the magic words to open their eyes.....Come Lord Jesus Come!
Psst! You, yeah, you. C'mere. Generally speaking, when you're the only person who can see a thing, that's because it's not actually there. I mean, I suppose it's possible that white horse in the garden is a unicorn, but more than likely, you are delusional.
Seriously, has there ever been a time when there weren't earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes, pestilences, and turmoil in the Middle East (and everywhere else)? Go get a history book, read it and then get back to me.
I wish I knew the magic words too
Me, too! That's be sweet! Oh, you mean to convince me that earthquakes are highly unusual events. Never mind.
I found a correlation to these times at work the other day. My coworker Leslie spoke over the loudspeakers to warn customers that the store would be closing in 10 minutes, and people kept on shopping, some came to the front. She then warned that the store would be closing in five minutes. People started coming to the front then.
I realized that on a much wider and less petty scale, this is what the Lord has been doing since 1948. The store is closing, but people are still doing their shopping while those who are listening have gone to the checkout. Soon the store will close and people who didn't listen will be trapped overnight.
Um, wut? What does "correlation" mean again? Do you warn your customers that the store is closing by setting the displays on fire? I . . . wut?
Great Analogy! I could not agree more! It just saddens me to see the blind walking everywhere!
Damn blind people! Stick to your . . . blind . . . places.
Remember hurricane Katrina. Weren't the people being warned four or five days ahead of expected landfall. Many didn't heed the warning and the landfall and the breaking of the levee caused a lot more damage and loss of life than anyone anticipated or could have imagined.
Oh, you mean the poor people who had no way to get out of town and nowhere to go even if they did get out? That makes this analogy . . . interesting.
I'll end with the most disturbing thing I've ever read (and I've read the Bible):
With fish and game comissions trying to rid the US of invasive-destructive species,
starlings have always been a scourge, and remember the snake head fish infestation, should we be surprised when this kind of thing happens?
With toxic spills and weather system changes, fish will suffer very quickly.
All we need is some massive land animal die-offs.
Certianly these events need investigation, cause identification, as there may be a serious health threat to humans.
But This isn't God's handiwork. God would kill every starling on the face of the earth. God's signs leave no doubt.
satan on the other hand, loves to play games, and if these occurances get lots of christians proclaiming "signs of the times"
Well, that will be fuel for scoffers wouldn't it. "So where is your long expected Jesus?"
But then that is real Prophecy coming to fruition, isn't it?
No one knows the day, but act like the time is short - be busy until He sounds the Quitting Time Whistle.
You'll know it's god by the incredible scale of death and suffering. Um, yeah. I'm sure the Egyptians, looking at their dead first born children would agree.
