If you have read and studied the books of Daniel, Revelation and the four gospels in the Bible, you already know that the world is headed for catastrophic events, which only God’s people will escape as things get worse. 

Concerning Israel, Barack Obama’s plan is to bring about a peace treaty between Palestinians and Jews, and when that happens, the Lord’s coming is near according to the scriptures (Daniel 8:25, Daniel 9:27, Revelation 7:9-14).  Are you watching, praying and prepared spiritually for the return of the Lord?  Jesus told the disciples about the things that would come to pass before His return.  Matthew 24:4-5 says, “And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.  For many shall come in my name saying, ‘I am Christ,’ and shall deceive many (David Koresh, Sun Myung Moon, Sergei of Russia, Jose Luis de Jesus Miranda of Puerto Rico, Maitreya of Nairobi, Marshall Applewhite, Jim Jones to name a few in recent years).”  Matthew 24:6-7 says, “And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars…nation shall rise against nation…there shall be famines, pestilences (which include viruses such as AIDS, SARS, bird flu, Ebola, etc.), and earthquakes.”  Of course, people say that we have always had war, famine, pestilence, and earthquakes.  The key issue here is that we will see such an increase of these things in the days before Christ’s return that God’s children will know we are living in the last days, because we have read the Bible and understand it through prayer and by divine revelation.  Others will be perplexed and they will not know what is coming upon them.  We needn’t worry if we are prepared spiritually, because God has not appointed His children to wrath (I Thessalonians 5:9).  Only those who do not serve the Lord need to worry.  The Word of God tells us in I Thessalonians 4:16-18, “The Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trump of God, and the dead in Christ shall rise first, then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air and so shall we ever be with the Lord.”  

Radical Muslims admit that their religious beliefs include “killing the infidels.”  Israelis and Americans are among those considered to be “infidels.”  According to the “radical” Muslims, their mission is to convert the world to Islam and kill nonconverts.  This is their faith and it is quoted in the Koran! 

According to the National Earthquake Information Center, about 50 earthquakes occur each day, approximately 20,000 per year.  Many are not major, so you don’t hear about them, but some are, such as those hitting Haiti and Chile recently.  They are going to get worse and they can hit anywhere at anytime.  The greatest risk is not knowing the Lord, thereby escaping the horrors soon to come upon the world, and especially escape eternity in hell without hope.  In fact, sooner or later we will all leave these bodies and stand before God to be judged for our actions in this life.  Please be prepared to have Him say, “Well done good and faithful servant, enter into the joy of the Lord.”  Matthew 25:23
