In which we live

For me, there are two views of my life. The immediate world around me and a step back to the larger world of life.
I am excited about the one, the plans that God's shown us about our future.  I am almost 'wowed' into silence at the other. Jesus said in Matthew 16:1-4 "The Pharisees and Sadducees came up, and testing Jesus, they asked Him to show them a sign from heaven. But He replied to them, “When it is evening, you say, ‘It will be fair weather, for the sky is red.’  And in the morning, ‘There will be a storm today, for the sky is red and threatening.’ Do you know how to discern the appearance of the sky, but cannot discern the signs of the times?  An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign; and a sign will not be given it, except the sign of Jonah.” And He left them and went away."

Indeed, I do look at the signs of the times. That's what brings the 'WOW' and many times a 'Whoa...'  People can deny it all they want.  Christ is coming.
The level of evil in the world is ever increasing. Sexual sin and all its perversion is increasing. I look at the news headlines and am disgusted by what adults are doing to children.  I am disgusted that we eventually end up with those in government that seek to PROTECT such evil people!  Murdering our own children is PROTECTED.

Well, as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be when Christ comes. Evil will be rampant on the earth.  Peace and safety!  That's in the headlines it's all you hear.  Guess what, the Bible said it would be. 1 Thessalonians 5:3 "While they are saying, “Peace and safety!” then destruction will come upon them suddenly like labor pains upon a woman with child, and they will not escape." Even if it means stripping the rights of others, it's there in the news.
Jesus is coming. 
The King is Coming.
Soon, and very soon.
There is not much time left. Nobody knows the day or the hour, but, Jesus said you WILL know the signs. You can stick your head in the sand but the signs will not go away.  Everything that the Bible says is coming will come to pass.  Everything leading up to the coming of Christ the first time was written and came to pass.
