He's Coming Soon + Earthquake in Chile!

We know Jesus is coming back. We've heard it and we all remember when people said the world was gonna end and people were making jokes (and still are) about how they lived past the "end of the world".

However, The Bible gives us clues or signs of when we can tell we are in the last days.

There will be false prophets or teachers and those predicting the end of the world.

2, Peter. 2:1-3
King James Version (KJV) - {1} "...there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you,..."
{2} "And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of."
{3} And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you:"

Jesus did tell his Disciples how people were going to be making predictions and that we shouldn't listen to them because no man knows the date or hour! 

Matthew 24: 4, 11, & 24 
King James Version (KJV) - {4} "And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you."
{11}"And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many."
{24} "For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect."

Ultimately we just need to keep our eyes on the Lord and continue serving him and trying to get our families on board.

Scripture tells us also that in the last days there will also be Earthquakes, hurricanes, & disasters.

Matthew 24:7 
King James Version (KJV) - "For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places."

(Divers means different)

This brings me to the point where Yesterday, (April 1st 2014) there was a 8.2 Magnitude earthquake 59 miles away from Iquique, Chile. It had a depth of 12.5 miles, the U.S. Geological Survey said.
Six people were crushed to death or suffered fatal heart attacks. So horrible! People say that was a remarkably low toll for such a powerful shift in the Earth's crust.

About 500 people were killed when an 8.8-magnitude earthquake that struck Chile on February 27, 2010. That quake triggered a tsunami that toppled buildings, particularly in the Maule region along the coast.

Several 3.0+ Magnitude earthquakes have happened in California as well that I have read about just in the past month!

Another sign is that there will be blasphemers. (Cursing, swearing & using God's name in vain)

2, Timothy. 3:1 & 2
King James Version (KJV) - "This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come."
{2} "For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,"

We hear it all the time. In the stores, at work... And it's becoming more common to use curse words. And the Bible says in the end times it will be prevalent. I think it's become prevalent. Some people always use a dirty word in their sentences. And it seems like the world has gotten immune to it.

There will also be Increase of acceptance of homosexuality as it was in the days of Sodom. 

Luke. 17:28 - 30 
King James Version (KJV) - "Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;"
{29} "But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all."
{30} "Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed."

We know Lot lived in Sodom and that the people all around him was for homosexuality and sins of such. We know that it is a sin. God clearly is against it. God says it is an abomination!

Leviticus. 18: 21-24
King James Version (KJV) - "Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination."
{23} "Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion."
{24a} "Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things:..."

Leviticus. 20:13
King James Version (KJV) - "If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them."

Romans 1 also covers this!

Also Religious Hypocrisy is a sign of Christ's return- (People saying they are Christians but they don't live for Him or act like a Christian. The Word Christian means Christ like.)

2, Timothy. 3:5 
King James Version (KJV) - "Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away."

If you profess to be a Christian you shouldn't support dirty movies by watching them, You shouldn't support things that have blasphemy in it and You shouldn't take God's name in vain or curse. So many people say they are a Christian but they don't live it. They talk the talk but they don't walk the walk.

I'm not saying you are to be perfect but you are to strive for Godly perfection and have a walk with God and be close to Him. Especially if you claim to be a Christian. God isn't a nobody or a fictional character. He is real and gives you air to breathe and eyes to read this or ears to hear this. Don't say you're a Christian and then live ungodly and make a bad name for God Almighty. When you claim to be something, you are a representation of that. You don't want to be a hypocrite.

Another sign is that People will deny that God made the Heavens and that he judged the world in Noah's day with a Worldwide Flood. 

2, Peter. 3:3-6
King James Version (KJV) - "Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,"
{4} "And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation."
{5} "For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:"
{6} "Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:"

"The world is covered with water. Water does anticipate That's what nature says. Evaporates comes down. Evaporates comes down; always stays the same. So if theres a world wide flood, water should still be hanging around somewhere. Do you think that 70% of the earth covered in water is a good clue that there was a worldwide flood?" - Ray Comfort

When it comes to Noah and his ark 2 relevant questions arise.
How many animals did it carry & How large was the ark?

Notice this.

Genesis. 6:20
King James Version (KJV) - "Of fowls after their kind, and of cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the earth after his kind, two of every sort shall come unto thee, to keep them alive."

The definition of Kind is - A class or group of individual objects, people, animals, etc., of the same nature of character, or classified together because they have traits in common.

It's a hated word because that means that God didn't have to fit today's 6.5 million species to fit in the ark. It means Noah only needed 1 pair of canine from which would come all species of dogs, And one pair from the feline kind from which would come the domesticated car and the Tiger, etc. So now we're just talking thousands of animals instead of millions. And because these animals need not be fully grown, this becomes possible to "mankind". The size of the ark was a MASSIVE 3 level ship, the size of one and a half football fields.

Another argument skeptics bring up is that there is not enough water to cover the mountains. They forget that mountains were not the height they are now. And that the earth AND sky store trillions of tons of water. The Bible says that the flood waters came from both the sky and the earth.

Genesis. 7:11 
King James Version (KJV) - "...all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened."

          Men will be fearful of the future!

Luke 21:26
King James Version (KJV) - "Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken."

I think a lot of people are fearful of the future. I am fearful of the future and that the Lord will come back and that some people I know have not come to know Christ yet.

People will mock the 2nd coming of Christ saying that these signs have always been around is another clue.

2, Peter. 3:3 & 4
King James Version (KJV) - "Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,"
{4} "And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation."

I mean people say it, yeah, yeah and it isn't a big deal to some anymore.

         There will be those people who ignore the warning of the Gospel.

When people don't take sin seriously or they think it's funny. And I see that going on. Don't you?

Matthew 24:37-39
King James Version (KJV) - "But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be."
{38} "For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,"
{39} "And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be."

We all see these things and if not all of them, at least one. So therefore, we are in the last days and the most important thing for you and I to do is to be sure that we are ready for Christ's return and that we are saved.

We all realize that we are in the last days and We need to be busy getting our friends and family ready for Christ's return and to keep Jesus our main Focus and not be worried. I hoped this gave you some insight and explained things to you clearly.

Here's a song sang by The Rochester Family. It's called "Don't it make you wanna go?"
