I remember when I was still in highschool, they said it will be 2000. But it's already 2009 and now I wonder, is it really gonna happen? Im not a bible reader but I believe in God and I want to still be around when this happens. I remember watching a fireworks display a few years ago and the finale was incredible. It was like angels were coming down from heaven.

Hi! You have a good question. Many people ask the same question. The truth is, nobody knows the answer except the ones provided in the Bible. The Bible does not specify the dates nor the exact times but there are signs. For example, Jesus was very explicit about the signs of the end times in Matthew 24. He even gave a parable about the Ten Virgins--it is all about being ready when the "bridegroom" comes. The Apostle Paul was also stating some signs in his letters to Timothy. Paul's letter to the Thessalonians is very clear about what will happen when Christ comes. But still there are no dates. We all hope that we will all be there when it happens and participate. And so, lets find out the answers from Scriptures, anyway it's by no means only for religious people. Happy verse hunting!
