Posted on 09/25/2012 2:35:20 PM PDT by ConservativeMan55
I think everyone agrees we're nearing the final days of the Earth as we know it.
But what signs have you seen?
Jews gathering in Israel to me was a huge sign that we're very close.
You also see radical Islamists taking over Middle Eastern governments one by one. Once they have a majority I would suspect it won't be much longer.
When will Israel attack Iran? All bets are that it happens before the election for a couple of reasons. A winter strike would be impossible. Plus, the Israeli's aren't taking the chance that Obama gets re-elected.
Plus.. October 15th the moon will be just right. And it won't be that way again for a long time.
Will there be a nuclear war first??
Just gotta make it through December 22nd...
I think between October and December things will begin to get very interesting.
5000 years from now man will still be wondering...
What is going on with the moon this day?
You think? I think it’ll be within our lifetimes.
The Cubs won’t win the World Series this year. No endtimes.
The temple will need to be rebuilt.
I think you need to get out more. I doubt if 2% of the population believe that.
I don't believe in the end times...and you do realize at this point in time we are living in the least violent times in man's history?? Yeah, there is some places around the globe that are hot spots but it's a fact there is less violence today than ever throughout the world.
It’ll be a new moon. There were two dates given for new moons.
September 15th which has passed, and October 15th. After that the strike would be in the middle of winter.
All will come against Jerusalem, including the United States. The G-d of Abraham, Issac and Jacob will defend Israel against iran, russia, or whomever. The US will be given the same options as Sodom and Gommorah, and will make the same choices. Pray that He gives you eyes to see and ears to hear. Your redemption draws near.
Is the Antichrist the one who rebuilds it?
2 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
In all seriousness, though... take it easy.
No. We all don’t agree.
BTW, the word “antichrist” appears four times in the Bible:
 Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.
 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.
 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
 For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.
From these four verses, we learn that:
1.) there are many antichrists
2.) antichrist is a spirit
3.) antichrists were in the world more than 2,000 years ago.
4.) the “last time” occurred 2,000 years ago. (so were the “last days” according to the Bible).
Your theology is flawed.
The Cubs win the Series
The temple needs to exist by the middle of the tribulation period. With modern building techniques, the tribulation could actually start before the rebuilding of the temple does.
We are always in the last days.
Christ will return, when He wants to return.
Since no one knows the time or day, we can not predict with any accuracy.
As an Adventist, one of the signs to watch for is for America to move from an idealized Christian society, where one is free to practice their faith to a country that will persecute God’s faithful people.
The end of the Age of Grace. The earth still needs to go through a 7 year tribulation and a millenial kingdom on earth first. Then a new heaven and a new earth will be formed.
I have seen the confederacy of nations described in Psalm 83 starting to form. This will lead to war, Ps. 83, and the destruction of Damascus (Isa 17). The destruction of Damascus probably will lead to the end of Hezbollah and peace for Israel. This, added to the riches that will come from the exploitation of the Leviathan gas fields, will set the stage for the Ezekiel 38 war. I believe we'll get to see all of this, just before being Raptured.
One of my favorite sites to read about current events and prophecy is Begona's Hope
We’re getting much closer to that. And America has a president that will not stand with Israel when it is attacked.
By confederacy of nations you mean the EU?
Will it be Israel that causes the destruction of Damascus you think? (Syria?)
October 15th is a new moon. No light.
I seriously doubt that the Israeli's would limit themselves to just one night a month though.
I don’t think they’re willing to wait until after the election either.
I’ve always thought it might be an asteroid.
Oh Puh-leeeze...you’ve been listening to that crackpot Hal Lindsey again, haven’t you?
Nope, just asking a simple question.
I spent half my life expecting to be one of the warriors of the Last Days. Then I got old and broke down. Now, I am buying ammo, PowerBars and cans of Vienna Sausage.
Hey, we all face the end of the world our own way. I just hope nobody has seen Obamalamadingdong in a blue turban yet. I need a few thousand more rounds of .308 before the end.
How close do you think we are now?
Who is going to attack Israel?? Iran?? 75% of the population is <30 and they like the west and western ways and are way less fanatic than their parents ..Iran's strict religious leaders are on thin ice with their own population as is most of the muslim world. The young people in the ME want no part of living how their parents did.
The muslim leader are fanatic but they are not nuts/suicidal to attack Israel..
It will be worse than any one of us can really envision. If you read the seven last plagues, it sounds like the description of a nuclear holocaust.
As prepared as id like to be, with all kinds of dried foods and clothing and such, Im not sure is any amount of preparation could put off, by more than a few months, of what we all have to go through.
“I think everyone agrees we’re nearing the final days of the Earth as we know it.”
With Obama in power and World leaders meeting in New York along with the current droughts and gay marriage in may US states, we could be in our final hours.
I think that makes it all that more important that we all vote early.
Dude, that asteroid Apophis will be the end of this planet. Hard to say what will be the end of our civilization, but I’m sure it is written down somewhere.
And Algore did not write it ;)
Who is going to attack Israel?
I’ll take terrorists for 500 Alex.
If Iran gets a nuclear bomb.. they’re not going to necessarily attack Israel in conventional style.
They’re going to hand the bombs off to terrorists.. who will smuggle them into Israel and the United States. Then Kaboom.
1 - There is no “The”, as there are recurrences throughout history.
2 - There is likely one now.
3- That does NOT indicate the end is near!
just as soon as God ordains it!8^}
Yep!! We have slapped God in the face. And now he’s about to hand down his judgement.
Friday the 13th, 2029.
Christ was the fullfilment and there will be no 3rd Temple, as there is no further need for sacrifice.
