Skip to comments.Jesus' Return (for the Rapture of all who belong to Him) is Very Near
Posted on 02/27/2010 8:02:16 PM PST by Freedom'sWorthIt
Disasters - earthquake, Tsunami, others - happening rapidly now.
Read Matthew 24. There will be earthquakes.....etc.
When we see these events occurring in increasing frequency it is because these are the "birth pangs" that we have been told by Jesus Christ Himself - would happen closer together in time as do the birth pangs of a woman in labor. The closer she gets to giving birth, the worse the birth pangs become and the closer together they come.
20 He who testifies to these things says, "Yes, I am coming soon." Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.
Events leading to his return have been spelled out for 2000 years. They will occur in due time. We waste our time and his seeking out what will one day be obvious to all the faithful.
The reality is we don’t know what happens in 24 hours or the next minute.
LOL, and it ain’t gonna be pretty.
You know, back in 1914, some guy named Charles Taze Russell thought the world was going to end because of these same exact signs. I wonder whatever happened to that religious group he founded?
Then we seem to be on the same page.
Amen and amen!
Nobody in their right minds wants to be “left behind” after Jesus comes to Rapture His Bride to be with Him in heaven during the terrible 7 year time called
The time of the end
The time of Jacob’s trouble
The Great Day of the Lord
It is a “day” of terrible darkness (see some of the unusual cloud photos that are out there on the internet).
Jesus is literally reaching out to the entire world - through these disasters (which are aimed to take as many to hell as possible - before they can respond to God speaking at this time)...and He is speakig through all these unusual clouds and “sky events” that are being seen and reported all around the world!
He LONGS for, YEARNS for ALL to turn to Him and be saved! from what is coming on the earth and what is coming in hell to all who refuse His calls to turn to Him for salvation!
Ok, I am going to take abreak here and find some links to these cloud things.
amen thank you so much and God bless you! Carry on - back in a few.
We should not worry about the end of the world...
We shoudl worry about our own souls...
The timing you speak of is irrelevant.
The time for each...is now.
 Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.
 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions.
 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven.
 And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
Have you sold what you have and given it to the poor? Have you cashed out your 401k and IRAs, and donated the proceeds?
Thank you ..Dittoes.
Remember that the birth of the Messiah had been predicted thousands of years before it actually happened, and you gotta know there must have been enormous numbers of skeptics and people who had completely given up believing He would ever be born. It’s the same with His return for the church.
Indeed I have read the entirety of the scriptures cover to cover more than once.
Now your turn, read history.
The world has been ravages by far worse than what we are seeing now.
The Plague, World Wars, massive epidemics, floods, famine earthquakes...
And with each there were those who told everyone including God the end was near...
He will let us know, trust me.
This is but a blip on the radar screen.
and therefore Jesus is now...
Not end times
but NOW. This very moment.
From the Principia Discordia:
The Hell Law says that Hell is reserved exclusively for them that believe in it. Further, the lowest Rung in Hell is reserved for them that believe in it on the supposition that they'll go there if they don't.
HBT; The Gospel According to Fred, 3:1
The increasing frequency of vanity threads is a sure sign
These mysterious cloud videos on youtube do not convince me of anything. I believe that the signs the Bible refers to will be worldwide the likes of which no human has ever seen before, strange things in the cosmos, strange weather, strong earthquakes where the have been no earthquakes. Things that have never before happened throughout human history, none of those things are happening right now, all the earthquakes and mysterious clouds have happened before, for thousands of years.
Somtimes not even 5 minutes ago...
Links about these unusual clouds appearing all over the world and this has been going on for sometime but like many I did not know about this until someone posted here on FR about the one that happend Feb 22 over Mexico city - will find that link to that thread and will post it or you can do a search with “cloud” as a key word and you will find those threads.
Thread about the Mexico city cloud of early this week with photo...
Not my versions of Jesus, ace. Ain’t no wiping out. No tribulation. No second coming. Just trees in the meadow with birds singing.
Amen and Amen! Thank you!
When Christians realize it is not about end times...
If it takes end times terror to bring one to God...
how very sad,
Exactly. The evenst leading up to the retrun will be special.
My Grandmother died from cancer in 1967. I was 8 going on 9. The last few weeks of her life she stayed at our house and my mother took care of her. She had cancer that had spread to her stomach and lungs.
I remember a conversation we had. I remember it like it was yesterday. The sun coming in through the windows, the smell of the medicine.
I knew she was dying and I asked her if she was afraid. She looked at me and kind of laughed a bit. and sat up in bed a bit. When she got her breath back she told me this.
"I believe in Jesus and that he has saved me from my sins. I have believed this since I was a young girl and because of that belief I have had a full and happy life. I have been given a wonderful and loving husband, 3 wonderful children and 4 grandchildren who I love dearly. If I am right, then when I die I will go to heaven to be with my friends and family who have gone before me. I will have a new body with no pain and no tears. I will be with my Savior Jesus forever." "If I am wrong, then when I die there will be nothing." "Even if I have been wrong, I am glad that I believed all these years because I am happier now because of it." Then she said. But what about the person who doesn't believe. What if they don't believe, and I'm right?
Convinced me. She lived just long enough to see me baptized. I miss her so much, but I KNOW I will see her again. And at 52 I can now honestly say it will be sooner rather than later, no matter the cause.
Your own words:
strange things in the cosmos, strange weather, strong earthquakes where the have been no earthquakes.
Do a search on Youtube of “spiral cloud Norway” or strange cloud Norway.
or go here:
I know how you feel. My mom died at 56 from cancer. That was years ago and I still miss her.
But what I was trying to say is too many have a morbid fascination with some sort of end time. I don't know what is going to happen in the future and I think it is unhealthy to obsess on it.
Thank you and so happy you belong to Jesus!
I am not worried at all. And not one bit afraid.
But I would like to see millions turn to Jesus BEFORE the Rapture comes - wouldn’t you?
Friend, with all due respect.......and sincere concern for your eternal soul; I implore you to read the following:
2Pe 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
2Pe 3:10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
2Pe 3:11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,
2Pe 3:12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?
2Pe 3:13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.
2Pe 3:14 Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.
2Pe 3:15 And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you;
2Pe 3:16 As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.
2Pe 3:17 Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness.
2Pe 3:18 But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.
You don’t think a 7.0 earthquake in Haiti - the worst earthquake there in 200 years - or an 8.8 earthquake in Chile the most intense earthquake in the world (that I have read of) so far this year - you don’t think these are “special events”???
Check out my post above about the spiral cloud over Norway.
Guess when that spiral cloud happened?
Dec 9 2009.
Who was in Norway on that date?
Do a search and find out.
And some wonder why the ridicule. Hilarious.
I believe but some of the stuff I read is flat out goofy and this one is in the top 5.
No. But many think you are 'special.'
Do you have a friendship with Al Gore? You both are peddling the same crap.
Like I said, quit looking for signs that aren't there and get on with the business of witnessing to others about Christ and his work in your life, not doom and destruction
These things are simply the beginning and have been happening for quite a long time......but I think we forget that the speed of communication across the oceans and around the world can make it appear things are happening faster.. when in fact the news of these things is getting to us much faster.
Jesus evidently doesn’t think it is a waste of time...so I’ll side with Him on this!
He sent His early believers into all the world to preach the gospel, to baptise all who would come to Him, and to make disciples of all nations!
That is exactly what HIS CHURCH is supposed to be doing - along with all the other good things it does.
But we cannot neglect our primary calling which is to take the Good News of His Gospel to every corner of the earth to reach every person we can possibly reach in order that they might be saved for all eternity!
Our earthly problems are certainly important and we are not called to ignore those problems not at all.
But we are ALSO called to bring whosever will come TO HIM!
That’s what this thread is doing - that’s what the Earthquekes and the other bizarre events are doing - that’s what the unuusal clouds are doing...that’s what Radio (BBNradio.org) and the Internet (colonial.org, facebook, oneplace.com to name a few) and that’s what Many churches are actively doing....which is just as Jesus COMMANDED those who belong to Him to do!
Join in - it’s actually great fun speaking to others about Jesus and eternal life with Him. Most are very appreciative of such discussions and information!
Just heard on Fox news - this 8.8 quake today is one of the most powerful ever recorded!
I pretty much can’t think of him without a HUGE GRIN on my face......
I envision him in Heaven. Now how in the WORLD can you be sad over that???
Now THAT is special......God bless you!!!
1 John 4
Test the Spirits
1Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, 3but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world.
4You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. 5They are from the world and therefore speak from the viewpoint of the world, and the world listens to them. 6We are from God, and whoever knows God listens to us; but whoever is not from God does not listen to us. This is how we recognize the Spirit[a] of truth and the spirit of falsehood.
God’s Love and Ours
7Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. 8Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. 9This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son[b] into the world that we might live through him. 10This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for[c] our sins. 11Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. 12No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.
13We know that we live in him and he in us, because he has given us of his Spirit. 14And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world. 15If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in him and he in God. 16And so we know and rely on the love God has for us.
God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him. 17In this way, love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment, because in this world we are like him. 18There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.
19We love because he first loved us. 20If anyone says, “I love God,” yet hates his brother, he is a liar. For anyone who does not love his brother, whom he has seen, cannot love God, whom he has not seen. 21And he has given us this command: Whoever loves God must also love his brother.
