Is this the End of the End Times ?
All these Signs are happening now.
How close are we to the 2nd Coming ?
I think that within the next 10 years ....what do you think ?

Mt 24:7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

Mr 13:8 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows.

Lu 21:11 And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.

There you go again OMEGA...

In the past 2000 years there have always been wars, faminine, pestilences, and earthquakes. What makes today any different? Scripture specifically state that no one will know when Jesus will return. To claim it will occur in 10 years is completely unbiblical.

Mark 13-32-36


32 "No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. 33 Be on guard! Be alert! You do not know when that time will come. 34 It's like a man going away: He leaves his house and puts his servants in charge, each with his assigned task, and tells the one at the door to keep watch.
35 "Therefore keep watch because you do not know when the owner of the house will come back—whether in the evening, or at midnight, or when the rooster crows, or at dawn. 36 If he comes suddenly, do not let him find you sleeping. 37 What I say to you, I say to everyone: 'Watch!' "

Yes it is. But why should there be such a time of trouble when God's kingdom is so near? (Luke 21:31). The reassuring answer is found at Revelation 12:10, 12.

Don't count your chickens friend, this sort of stuff has been happening since the beginning of time. If you think earthquakes, wars, pestilences and what not are new, think again. According to the bible we live in a perpetual state of the end times. Don't go scaring people.

I wonder about that. Before He was murdered, Jesus said only the Father knew. Then in Acts after He is risen, He changes what He'd said before just a bit. "It is not for YOU to know the times or the dates the Father has set by His own authority." Doesn't say that Jesus Himself didn't then know. Just a thought.

OMEGA,

You're logic is flawed. If we cannot know the day, then logically we cannot know the week, month, year, decade, century, or millenium. The point of this Scripture is that Jesus is telling his disciples of his future return.

I'll use a week as an example. Let's say you claim to know theweek of Jesus' return. Then you have reduced the possibilites to seven days, a finite amount of time. In essence you now know when Jesus will return some time within the next seven days. I seriously doubt Jesus was implying that we could know the week but not the day.

i personally think that the end of the earth is coming in the year 2012. Not because of those signs that omega brought up, though. That has always been happening. The prophecy of St. Malachai states there is one pope left after John Paul II. The bible states 7 years of trouble before the end of time. the mayan (or aztec, i forget which one) calendar ends december 2012. John paul died 2005. 2012-2005=7. Ratzinger ( benedict the 16th)is already 78. Plus the prophecy states that rome is to be destroyed directly before Christ comes again. Them muslims extremists are getting really P.O.'ed.

Berean, I said CIRCA Dec, 28, 2012 AD. which means around the year or date.

All the things that Jesus said have not Fully Happened..

We haven't seen the Capture of Jerusalem or the Abomination of Desolation.

But we are very close to it.

Even if you knew the week. You could not pick the Day or the Hour.

Although God does say that HE will cause the Sun to go down at NOON.

Am 8:9 And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord GOD,

that I will cause the sun to go down at noon, and I will darken the earth in the clear day:

Isa 2:19 And they shall go into the holes of the rocks, and into the caves of the earth, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth.

Isa 2:21 To go into the clefts of the rocks, and into the tops of the ragged rocks, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth.

Isa 13:13 Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the LORD of hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger.

Eze 38:20 So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.

Joe 3:16 The LORD also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the LORD will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel.

Heb 12:26 Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.


Hag 2:6 For thus saith the LORD of hosts; Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land;

Depends on if you're counting number of starving people (up, because the population is up), or percentage of the population (down, because food production is way up, and distribution is much improved, though still not perfect).

* and pestilences,

Down.

* and earthquakes, in divers places.

Yeah ... if Omega's going to engage in "Tabloid Eschatology," can't he at least come up with something novel? Unique? Heck, even unusual would be a nice change!

yeah, this stuff is on par with satan being spotted in a volcanic mushroom cloud.

Volcanic mushrooms? :chuckle: I've heard of "magic mushrooms," but never volcanic mushrooms.

Maybe that's what Omega's been having on his pizza.

Soon you Scoffers and Mockers will be S O R R Y .
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Mt 24:33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things,

know that it is near, even at the doors.

Mt 16:3 O ye, ye can discern the face of the sky;

but can ye not discern the signs of the times?

3 ¶ Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers,

4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.

5 For this they willingly are ignorant

Im no scoffer, nor am I a mocker...but this is silly. There have always been scoffers and mockers (look at the way they treated Christ) and people have been trying to predict the end for just about as long as its been since Christ left us here. There's no reason to attempt to predict the end. When it happens it happens and then we'll finally be outta here :banana:

We should always be diligent in witnessing to those who do not believe, but not with threats of His second coming, you'll just sound like a lunatic. Let the power of the Holy Spirit work through you and pray. Your words will mean more than unnecessary threats. :thumb:

Hmm. I think that first there is the rapture, so be prepared to see a bunch of Christians disappear all of a sudden. Then comes the 7 years of tribulation. The anti-Christ shows up looking like a dressed up barbie doll or maybe kinda like George Clooney. For the first 3 1/2 years this'll be an all out party for the heathen/pagan/whatevers left behind. Everything will be perfect, no war, no disease...and then *dun dun dun* the anti-Christ shows itself for what it really is. The remaining 3 1/2 years totally are not cool, not cool at all. Everyone will have to get the mark of the beast if they want to eat and survive and stuff. This is a last chance deal for those who want to accept Christ. If you're noticing, "hey this is pretty close to what D2I said was gunna happen" You simply don't get that mark (666 maybe?) on your head or hand and your all set. BUT theres a stipulation. If you don't get the mark you'll be tortured (I imagine it being kinda like the end of Braveheart...or maybe he'll go for something more like 1984) and if you make it out without it, BAM you're with the almighty. So then earth is cast into fire (the new hell?) and God will recreate heaven and earth. Good times.

1Th 5:14 Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that are unruly, comfort the feebleminded, support the weak, be patient toward all men.


Re 19:10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.
