    I believe the Rapture will happen before the Tribulation, and that it could happen at any time, without warning. However, I get no pleasure from reading about all the terrible events occurring in today's world. Terrible things have happened in our world since sin entered it. Things just as bad or worse than things happening now happened in the past--it's just that the world wasn't on a 24/7 news cycle in the past. These terrible headlines grieve me. I enjoy reading inspirational positive stories. That doesn't mean that I see the danger as any less, or have any less joyful anticipation of the Rapture.

    Philippians 4
    8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

    Yes, God judges sin but that's not the end of the story. There is hope and joy for those who take heed and repent, and accept the finished work of the sacrifice made by Jesus Christ because of His love for us.

    It's sad to think any Americans would depend on a President to solve all our problems. There is only one Who can, and He controls the future of all governments.

    Yep, it's sad to think that the overwhelming majority of Americans put their hope and trust in some new presidential candidate rather than Almighty God. It doesnít even cross their mind that America is on the brink of total destruction. They donít understand that the sweet, meek Jesus of mercy in the New Testament, is the SAME thundering, tough love dispensing, Holy God of justice in the Old Testament. It is God alone who judges; He decides who will rise and who will fall. He changes the times and the seasons, He removes kings and sets others on their thrones. For sure God who knows the future controls the future and whoever occupies the Oval Office in January 2017 will be God's choice of candidate relevant for these last days of this Last Generation.

    "Whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things" sounds great. However, because we live in a society that glorifies homosexuality, pornography, drugs, drunkenness, and we kill more of our unborn citizens by performing over 3,000 abortions per day every day in the United States (60 Million & counting), and we have twice elected a Marxist president who is the antithesis of Christian values, a man who has done more to turn America towards true paganism than any other president we have ever elected, that ain't easy.

    There's not one single verse of Scripture that even hints of anything getting better before the Lord returns, quite to the contrary, Jesus said that EVERYTHING will wax worse & worse. True, terrible things have happened in our world since sin entered it, things just as bad or worse than things happening now happened in the past. The difference in this generation from all others past is that ALL of those terrible things and ALL of the warning signs prophesied are converging into one generation, this present generation, making it the Last Generation. And regardless of just how terrible things have been in the past they will be feeble and unimpressive compared to the things yet to happen..."For then there will be great suffering, the kind that hasn't happened from the beginning of the world until now and certainly won't ever happen again". These Scriptures were not meant to scare us, they were meant to prepare us.
    Ready or Not...WE ARE THE LAST GENERATION...Are You Ready?
