Signs & Excitement
So you also, when you see all these things,
know that it is near--at the doors! Assuredly,
I say to you, this generation will by no means
pass away till all these things take place.
- - Mat 24:33 & 34
I am a Presbyterian and proud of it but
one of the things that Presbyterian miss
because of their understanding of
eschatology (prophecy) is the excitement
that Jesus' Return is very near!
The New Testament warns Christians to
NOT set dates however we are told that
we can know His Coming is near! Several
of the signs that I believe point to His soon
Return are the following:
1) The nation of Israel burst into existence
suddenly in 1948 and was immediately recognized
by the US under President Truman and God
has blessed us since for this.
2) Gog & Magog (Russia - see Ez 38 & 39) has
become belligerent once more and is prophesied
to attack Israel in the seven year Tribulation in the
3) The world financial crisis may cause America's
decline and perhaps the rise of a World Dictator
4) Computers now make it possible for the worldwide
monetary system described in Rev 13.
These are just a few of the signs that I believe may
well show us that the end is near and I sure hate for
all my good Presbyterian friends (many are wonderful
Christians) to miss the excitement and anticipation!
In fact there's a crown or reward to be given at the
Wedding Feast of the Lamb some time in the future
and I sure hope many of my great and wonderful
Presbyterian friends qualify but part of the requirement
is being excited (longing)!
