Our Bible study group is now reading a book by Joel Rosenberg called "Epicenter" and we are also watching the DVD together. WOW! Does it ever put our world into focus. We are nearing the End Times and this book and DVD take us on a journey showing us how the past/present events in our world and in the Middle East are all coming to a climax. I highly encourage everyone to read this book and to read the Bible. We are not to live in fear but we are to be aware of what is happening in our world today. I have not been very good at that - I don't necessarily enjoy watching the news because it is just too depressing. But, I enjoy checking on the websites below on current events and how everything is playing out for the End Times. Check them out for yourself.
1 Timothy 3:1-5 "You should also know this Timothy, that in the last days there will be very difficult times. For people will love only themselves and their money. They will be boastful and proud, scoffing at God, disobedient to their parents, and ungrateful. They will consider nothing sacred. They will be unloving and unforgiving; they will slander others and have no self-control; they will be cruel and have no interest in what is good. They will betray their friends, be reckless, be puffed up with pride, and love pleasure rather than God. They will act as if they are religious, but they will reject the power that could make them godly. You must stay away from people like that."
Does that sound like our world, like our culture to you? It's kinda scary, actually, when you really think about it. I see stuff like that everyday. Yes, definitely, we are living in the end times and the Day of the Lord is approaching very rapidly like never before.
