When I was a young Christian in the 1970s I got caught up in all of those end-time books lining the bibles book stores shelves. The most notable was Hal Lindseys, The Late Great Planet Earth. Although they were fascinating reading, so much of it seemed like too far fetched to believe it could happen in my life time.
Cashless Society? In the 1970s the thought of using a debit card almost anyplace, including vending machines and parking lots seems just too far out. Well today I go weeks without paper money or coin. I can probably can go without it all together, if it wasnt for the coffee kitty at work.
ONE World Leader? This was always a great mystery. How could one man become so popular so fast as to set him self up as God in a short 3 ½ years. Mystery no more. I am not saying Obama is the Antichrist, but his coming from nowhere in such a short time to become a Godhead among his Koolaid drinking followers that spread beyond our borders, is just to strange. It shows you how fast the real Antichrist can enter the World Stage.
World Government? Hard to fathom in the 1970s. Now, its something even the main stream media is picking up on. And the World Wide Web, not something Hal Lindsey even dreamed of, now makes a World Government an easier thing to accomplish.
Now add to this a world-wide calamity, say tens of millions of Christians disappearing, planes falling out of the sky, cars crashing because of missing drivers, THE RAPTURE, and ALL of the above can happen in very short order.
Since Obama was elected things seem to be moving way too fast not to see that something BIG, and terrifying has been set in motion. Something foretold in the Book of Daniel and in Revelation.
I sincerely believe the clock is ticking away, and its almost midnight. as a Christian who's price has already been paid I am looking forward to His Return and am praying for others who are not.
Nice post. Ditto.
I was a young Christian in the early 1970’s too, and read Late Great Planet Earth.
I believe as you, midnight is almost upon us. I look forward to His coming but am sad and fearful for those who are not spiritually prepared.
