Ok, so…not to get all “Jack VanImpe” on you…but, does anyone else out there think that maybe…JUST MAYBE…we could be in the “tribulation” times?
I mean…I’ve never been one of these people that stand on the street corner and preach “THE END IS NEAR” or anything like that…and, really, if you look at history…there have been numerous times that we could have said “JESUS IS COMING TOMORROW”. Actually, the bible says no one will know the day or hour...but there WILL be signs. And, I know that there are MANY different interpretations on when our “rapture” (by the way…that word is not even in the bible) will happen. Some say it will happen before the tribulation time, some say it will happen mid-tribulation time, some say it will happen post-tribulation time, and some say…there wont be a “rapture” at all. That we will remain on this earth, but that God will “recreate” it into a “new earth”, basically like the Garden of Eden. Beautiful, and without Sin.
With all that being said, I’m finding myself slightly intrigued by what is going on in the world:
1. Global Warming is at an all time high. If we continue on the path that we are on, we will be having 130 degree summers. Science is proving this day by day. If you haven’t seen “An Inconvenient Truth”…GO SEE IT! Its very informational. Could God be in the middle of destroying Earth, just to provide his new one?
2. The War in Iraq. Sure, I don’t know exactly where I “stand” on the whole “bring our troops home” thing, but, I DO think its interesting that nearly ALL of the muslim countries are starting to come up in arms.
3. This kid named “Adam” that was on 20/20 the other day. He’s not in America…he lives somewhere else, but he’s traveling all over the world. What’s the big deal about him???...Well, he is healing people and performing miracles and wonders left and right. See…he was “visited by a black bird” when he was a kid that told him “all the secrets of the universe and how to control it”. His parents have this on video showing him in a trance just staring at this bird for hours and hours. He’s now 19 years old. If this guy raises somebody from the dead (see the book of Revelation), I’m HEADED FOR THE HILLS!!!!!!!!!!
4. And of course…the latest. Israel and Lebanon. If the Lebanon troops blow up the “temple” in Israel…EVERYONE SHOULD START SHOUTING HALLELUJAH, JESUS IS COMING!!!! Because, isn’t one of the “final signs” the rebuilding of the temple?
So, I’m not exactly “freaked out”, because…no matter what…I’m trusting in my savior Jesus Christ. But WOW…it IS kind of cool to think about.
…so, what do YOU THINK????
