I don't know about everyone else, but I feel that Jesus is about to split the eastern sky wide open. In Matthew he laid out the signs of his return. So many seem to be obvious to me. It seems to me his return is imminent. I.E.: Floods, earthquakes, churning of the waters, pestilences, nation rising against nation. Now I know some will say "All this has been going on for hundreds of years.". But for Pete's sake, this is all occuring at the same time. The last several years have seen by far the most frequent minor and catastrophic earthquakes. For the first time we ran out of names for tropical storms. The latest one is named "Alpha". When I heard that I remembered when Jesus told John in Revelation "I am the Alpha and the Omega". Last year we saw the horrific tsunami. The latest earthquake killed I believe over 70,000 people in the Afghanistan area. We have the Avian (bird) flu and mad cow disease. I can't remember where, but a polio outbreak occured. Let's listen and follow our Master, Jesus and take as many to his kingdom as possible.

I have to agree. I mean, we won't know exactly when it will happen because even though the Bible lays out the signs for us, It also says that He will come like a thief in the night and that a day to God is like a thousand years to us.

Whatever, I'm ready and I welcome Jesus back as soon as He decides to come. Thank you Jesus!

It does seem kind of odd though, all of these major things happening within a short amount of time. Add those things with the fact that our society is going down hill quickly with the acceptance of abortion and gay marriage. Evil things are taking over our society because the god of this age is Satan and he's preparing his hell for everyone.

Before you start thinking I'm crazy, 2 Corinthians 4:4 says "The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God."

God sees this happening and is going to come swiftly. He's not going to allow Satan to take His people.

yes He is oming

blue Yes He is coming you can not help but see this if you read God's word. I was told by Jesus in March to watch the weather and have I been watching the weather. The only thing that breaks my heart is all the lost there are so many of them here in this country. Yes as it states in Rev. "come quickly Lord Jesus, come." All the signs should make us want to reach the lost even more. "Preach repentence for the Kingdom of God is near." Keep reaching out!!!

Utterly, yes keep reaching out and sharing the great news of Jesus. Please be careful, though, about speaking with unqualified certainty as though you know just how humanly soon is the return of Jesus.

Keep in mind,

"But beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance." (2 Peter 3:8-9)

"And He said to them, 'It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority.'" (Acts 1:7)

While multiple catasrophes and natural disasters may appear to be signs through our human eyes, it could be that the pervasive disasters prophesied will be so catastrophic that it will dumbfound the world beyond our current understanding. There are still millions and millions of souls to be saved.

Thank you for your consideration.

:love:To Christ

Thanks for this, BROTHERSINARMST4G. After posting, I considered that some could take what I said as a license to be less urgent about spreading the Gospel. In truth, living as though Jesus might return any moment is the only way to live for Him.

the almighty is trying to get our attention.
seems like in this day and age people are turning there backs on God.
All of the new technology screams "what do we need God for?"
I mean now you can talk and visually see some one across the ocean through technology. some of the places that were hit by the hurricanes you can easily say they there attitude as a city was we're bigger and better than ever nothing can stop us.
But God says "that is not so" and uses natural diasters to tell people "hey, you still need me."
the end times are definitely here, and God is trying to get our (christians) attention.

Each day gone by is one day closer to the day of Christ! We are in the age of Revelation. The end of times without question as you all agree and already confessed. The natural disasters is an obvious sign and let me tell you frankly anyone who denies it is nothing short of a blind fool.

Matthew 24:3-14

Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?” And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.

“Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. But he who endures to the end shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.

Yes, and there are people who choose one sin as worse than another and proselytize by accusation and threat. And there are those who receive Christ because of sudden recognition and fear of the Lord. Perhaps it is your evangelical call to warn others in this manner.

The problem remains that there are millions of unbelievers who are unfazed by both Bible prediction and verbal statements. Natural disasters and the ruination of cultures due to decadence and debauchery have been occurring for millenia. Rome fell because of immorailty; Sodom also was destroyed. Wars have overtaken the entire planet many times. Pestilence and famine have destroyed. Volcanic eruptions and earthquakes have taken out cities. The Old Testament is full of these catastrophes. They also abound in secular historical records

Now we are seeing these things overtly in the U.S.A. Other cultures may say, "nothing new to us; it's part of the scenery." Technology and media allow us to know of catastrophic events immediately.

In ages past, crusaders for Christ used Revelations as you - rightly so, it is part of the purpose of prophecy - to declare the imminent return of our Lord. Relative to population numbers in those past eras, the world appeared to be in the "age of Revelation" (not sure, Chad, if that is a Bible verse or your own expression).

"But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night,in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up." (Revelation 3:10)

Scientists, both unbelievers and Christians, concur that the description agrees with what will happen when our sun goes nova.

Yet what is of importance for people of God?
Therefore, since all these things will be dissoved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells. (Revelation 3:10-13)

We hasten to save souls.

I personally could be waiting for the Spirit of God to indicate that I am blind and foolish. I would then accept the label for what it is according to Him - whether it is a correcting rebuke or my being a "blind fool" for Jesus in His way that defies the wisdom of this world. There are Christians who would, in all readiness, love to see Jesus Christ return this minute, or at least in this life, so they can on earth see their revenge. I am not one of them. I am ready for my departure to Him every moment, but any human being's fall is never my gain.

I once heard a preacher - I think Chuck Swindoll on the radio - state that prophecy is not only to tell the future, it is to warn and teach for the correction of God. We see this with many of the Old Testament prophets. Revelations is extraordinary. The scriptural prophecies about and by Jesus are amazing and more than supercharged. And it is entirely for that "The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance."

I do not know the time..

To Christ, I do not know the time or hour or day. But His word tells me what to watch for. I know by looking at the sky I mostly likley can tell when it is going to rain or be sunny.

Yes photolady, so many are into the bless me God and do want to hear about his coming. The people I talk to do not want to hear He is coming they like here too much. What I see is they like their possessions and toys too much. That is so sad. We should all be laying up treasures in heavn where they will matter for His Kingdom!!!!

Will share some of God's story in my life soon, He is an awesome God!!

One last thought the Lord put on my heart is we have lost the fear of God.

I think alot of people don't realise what he will be bringing, I never myself.
A place with no evil, the lord will wipe away your tears, no fear, no death, no hunger.

I'm also starting to understand happiness, faith, and love to each other is far more important than belongings or money, I'm no saint and I will get things wrong but I am starting to learn

End Days: Please come "Home"

My brothers and sisters of TalkJesus, regarding the end days upon us: I've been watching God calling the Faithful home now for the last four years or so... literally calling his children home in DROVES. Around the time of 9/11, Bible sales shot up over 40% and Christian Contemporary Music sales went through the roof. They keep on growing, too. It's not just the massive earthquakes, the famines, pestulence like bird flu, SARS, and HIV... it's HIS PEOPLE who are changing, too. As someone who has worked at websites very much like TalkJesus, and for Christian single's dating, I've done hundreds of interviews of Christian people over those years - and I can witness to you now - that many, many people are feeling God calling them HOME. And they feel a very strong need to get "right" with the Lord, and close to Him. Yes, we see the UNFAITHFUL falling away in droves too, and even calling us to stop singing Christmas carols or putting the 10 commandments on "government property"; the words of Jesus you see in Chad's post, are coming true, that is "persecution" that we can't even express our religious beliefs. Certainly we are "HATED FOR HIS NAME'S SAKE" in a country devoted to Christianity; all over the world! Because despite the calls for "diversity", our nation is 86% Christian. We're hated all over the world at this point, for that fact - and if it is to glorify Him, then let them hate me all the more... Jesus is the Truth and I'd be beheaded for it, and that's fine with me. Watch the news: They'll crucify everybody from Robertson to Fallwell in the media... why? Because they are CHRISTIAN. And they speak the Truth.

God bless you all mightily!

Faithworks, thank you for your response. Though it did not come across, I was blessed by your first post. The light of Jesus shines in you. We as believers see the signs clearly. We have the Spirit of God. Now I am presenting the scripture that also relates to signs and seeing them. It is not a criticism of you in any way!! I express this, based on the places to which I am called in God's unique way for me, and here at Talk Jesus, it is safe to assume our differences are puny compared to that we each live for His kingdom to come and His will be done.

Matthew 16:2-3:
He {Jesus} answered and said to them, "When it is evening you say, 'It will be fair weather, for the sky is red'; and in the morning. 'It will be foul weather today, for the sky is red and threatening,.' Hypocrites! You know how to discern the face of the sky, but you cannot discern the signs of the times. A wicked and adulterous generation seeks after a sign, and no sign shall be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah."

What is the sign of Jonah? In Matthew 12:40 Jesus spoke,
"For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth."

The sign of Jonah is the sufferings of Christ, the death and resurrection of the Son of God, our Lord and Savior - the immediate and personal aspect for the unsaved to see, so that every individual can state, "Jesus died and suffered for my sins. He was resurrected to life so that I have His life."

We Christians know this.

Those unbelievers whom I must approach cut themselves off when end times is the subject. The Word speaks of them and our Lord still provides means for them to hear also. They are only one area for witness, but it seems to be the arena in which Jesus most frequently places me for His sake. Thus far, in my life, the book of Revelation is only for my own edification, and not the vehicle to witness to others.
