Ecclesiastes tells us that there is a time for everything. It only makes sense that if you see the signs of approaching fulfillment of prophecy that you would take heed. Look around and see the increased lawlessness, the hardening of the heart and almost complete disregard to the value of life that surround us, and do your own check on reality. While we can not know the exact time for the return of Jesus, He gave us what to watch for. Ignore the warning at your own peril because if you are not ready when the time comes, you will forever lose.
We see the signs and we are facing increased persecution here in the US and especially in the rest of the world. You only have to look at stories out of Sweden, Germany, England, and throughout the Middle East to see that. The complete disregard in many cases for established law that is supposed to protect the rights to practice our religion here in the US is becoming a daily occourance. And yet at the same time exceptions are made for those who practice the religion of Islam. Can anyone truly doubt that the times are rapidly approaching when Christians on every continent are persecuted and forbidden to practice our religion?
The wise man watches for the return and is prepared like the five bridesmaids who had the oil and were ready when the groom appeared. Our groom is rapidly approaching. I don’t know about you but I want to be prepared and awake. I want to take part in wedding that is being prepared in heaven! Luke 12:36And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh, they may open unto him immediately.
