Do you think that we are living in the last days and the end of the world is sooner than we really think? Like ok, look at all that is happening all around us! Food prices and inflation worldwide are reaching their all time peak... natural disasters and more frequent and violent and less predictable and their patterns are tremendously than within recent times? Do you think the possibility that Barack Obama's winning of the next US Presidential election will be the catalyst for the inevitable Armageddon? It's frightening to know that recently scientists hint that the earth may not survive beyond 100 years at it's current rate, that chinese astrologers see the end of the world within the next ten or so years, past tribes' callendars stop at 2022 and in the year 2014 it will be 100 years since Jesus Christ started ruling in heaven officially? WHAT DO YOU THINK

Yes I do believe we are living in the last days. We are hearing of wars and rumors of wars. The natural disasters such as the earth quake in China, Hurricane Katrina, Tornadoes and the floods putting farm land out of commission. The way that parents are treating their children. When I see how some children are being treated as groups in places like Kenya and have to be put in orphanages in Indonesia. The people starving in the Sudan and Dufar I see all of these as indications that it is the time of the end. But I don't put any stock in the scientists or the ancient calendars. Jesus Said that no one will know the hour or the time. We should live each day as though he is come now but still plan for tomorrow.

Thing is it's really not more devastation through natural catastrophes or more wars or more violence or more famine. It's all been around for centuries. There have always been wars in several places of the world, there have always been people starving somewhere, there have always been earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes, floods. And child labor and child mistreatment, well pampering them so much as we do, that is a new concept to us. A hundred years ago, we had children working on the farms and in factories. Doing hard labor, being mistreated, and the like. And orphanages do exist here in the US, too. That, too, is not a novel concept. However, thanks to our worldwide fast paced information network we are better informed and more aware of the situations. And they do love bad news, don't they? We get bombarded by it. Would an earthquake in China have made headlines here a hundred years ago, no. Probably not even that devastating Tsunami. People starving somewhere in Africa? War in remote and unimportant places? Don't think so. But now that we are bombarded with all the bad information, well now it sounds cumulative and earthshattering;)

Noah took 125 years to build the ark. He also preached about the coming flood. But the people of the time continued to live as they did before. Then Noah entered that ark and the door was shut and sealed. Then there was 7 more days before the flood. Jesus uses this example of what it would be like in the end times. Think about it.

I honestly think we are living in the last day. The book of Revelation clearly defines the signs to watch for.

Those prophecies come up again and again and again. If we would always start living like this is our last day, then we would have problems, lol. I don't believe that doomsday will come around in my lifetime or even in my great-grandkids lifetime;)
