Natural disasters 'escalating like labor pains' may be linked to the return of Jesus, says Rev. Franklin Graham. In an exclusive Newsmax.TV video, the evangelist says the end could come in 2012 or later.
*escalating birth pains*

There were three simultaneous events that happened during the earthquake at Jesus’ death that are of major importance to the fulfillment of the prophecies concerning the destruction of the Temple and Jerusalem:
The veil of separation torn from top to bottom
The tombs opened and the dead raised to life
Jesus acknowledged as the Son of God....
And Jesus cried with a loud voice, and gave up the spirit. And the veil of the temple was torn in half from the top to the bottom” (Mk.15:37-38 KJV).
“And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit. At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook and the rocks split. The tombs broke open and the bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life” (Matt.27:50-52
Men of Galilee,” they said, “why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven.”
Jesus return will signal a global earthquake....
It certainly IS in sight. However, OTHER things must transpire before we gather upon the Plains of Megiddo.
Earthquakes and War, and RUMORS of war.
But, the END is not yet.
By the way, I love your Profile page. You have the SOUL of an artist. We are kindred in Spirit...
As Jesus said: *let those who have ears to hear...hear...
I do think that we are living in the last days, but we have been ever since the nation of Israel was established in 1948. We know that Christ could not return until after that happened, but there are also other prophecies that have not been fulfilled (such as the rebuilding of the temple that was destroyed in 70 AD).
The Bible also says that there will be "wars and rumors of wars" as well as earthquakes and other natural disasters in the last days. There certainly have been an increase in those lately, but no man shall know the day or the hour when He will return. We just need to be ready!!
The beginning started about 2,000 years ago.
No, that baseball team from Chicago that never won, or have they?
You’re kidding of course. Right? Right???
GOD Bless you in these perilous times!
Know this first of all, that in the last days mockers will come with their mocking, following after their own lusts, 4and saying, Where is the promise of His coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all continues just as it was from the beginning of creation.
The end-time, prophesied scoffers surface on every prophecy thread.
2012 or later.
"Or later" covers a lot of territory.
*We are in the Season* that Jesus spoke of that would be a witness to the last days...We are that generation he spoke of..
Yes the Seals are being opened and as I believe in the Rapture of the Church, I think what you are speaking of happens after the *Rapture*
Lots of things happened in 1908. To what in particular are you referring to?
Amen to that!!
The Parable of the Ten Virgins
1 At that time the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. 2 Five of them were foolish and five were wise.
3 The foolish ones took their lamps but did not take any oil with them. 4 The wise ones, however, took oil in jars along with their lamps. 5 The bridegroom was a long time in coming, and they all became drowsy and fell asleep
6 At midnight the cry rang out: Heres the bridegroom! Come out to meet him!
7 Then all the virgins woke up and trimmed their lamps. 8 The foolish ones said to the wise, Give us some of your oil; our lamps are going out.
9 No, they replied, there may not be enough for both us and you. Instead, go to those who sell oil and buy some for yourselves.
10 But while they were on their way to buy the oil, the bridegroom arrived. The virgins who were ready went in with him to the wedding banquet. And the door was shut.
11 Later the others also came. Lord, Lord, they said, open the door for us!
12 But he replied, Truly I tell you, I dont know you.
13 Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour
Last time the Cubs won the World Series.
I suggest you wait until the Temple is rebuilt on Temple mount and the sacrificing of animals starts taking place again. Then too, there’s the anti-Christ and all that.
