I am not too good at predicting the future. I thought that there would be a bloodbath when Communist China took back Hong Kong some years ago. I was wrong. Most of us have been wrong with political predictions, baby sex predictions, etc., so I have learned to keep my mouth shut when it comes to the subject. Almost shut—because I have one small prediction to make about you, if you are a skeptic when it comes to Christianity. I will give you a short list of some of the prophecies of the Bible, then make my little prophecy. These were written 2,000 years ago, and are what are called “signs” of the end of the age. Here’s the list of what the New Testament says would take place just before the second coming of Jesus Christ: There would be an increase in wars and hostility between nations, homosexuality, knowledge, travel, earthquakes, famines, violence, and vegetarianism (1 Timothy 4:1-5. Note the word "creature" KJV). There would also be a breakdown of the institution of marriage, an empty and dead religious system, money-hungry preachers that would have many followers and slur the name of Christianity, a forsaking of the Ten Commandments ("Lawlessness"--Matthew 24:12), and mockery of a world-wide flood (2 Peter 3:3-6). Now here’s my prediction. If you are a skeptic, you will be saying “But these signs have always been around!” To be honest, your saying that, isn't my prediction. The Bible says that you would say it (2 Peter 3:4), and it even says why you are rebelling against the Word of God—because you are full of lust (how’s that for hitting the nail on the head?) The key to understanding the era in which we live is not to be ignorant of the fact that God dwells outside of the dimension of time, and that a day to Him is as a thousand years to us. Jesus said to keep your eye out for one "sign." When the Jews repossessed Jerusalem, that would bring all these signs into culmination. The Jews became a nation in 1948 and got Jerusalem in 1967. They found a homeland for the first time in 2,000 years. What are you waiting for? You had better make peace with God.
