End & New Beginning

The End/ New Beginning

The End of the World is NOT Near! Balanced Biblical teaching does indicate that there is a new age coming, during which Jesus Christ will reign. We do not set dates for future events! Fear and dread are not appropriate for those who know Christ. Nevertheless, there are many doomsday scenarios in the news, and some of them do have prophetic value. The balance here is to remember that the Bible predicts bad times ahead, but not the total destruction of life.

Jesus Is Coming Soon! - By Hal Lindsey

For more than fifty years, I have lived in the urgent expectation of Jesus’ return. Fifty years is a long time. Do I regret it? Was I wrong?

No and no!

He quotes Luke 12:37, where Jesus said, “Blessed are those servants whom the master, when he comes, will find watching.”

He gives many basic reasons for believing, now more than ever, that Christ's return is near, and why this should bring joy and peace to believers in an age of crisis.

Billy Graham: 'The Days of Noah' Are Returning to Earth

June 3, 2016 - In his Decision Magazine, evangelist Billy Graham said that Noah's Flood is a reminder that there will be an End Times catastrophe for modern mankind unless they "enter into the ark of salvation, which is Jesus Christ."

There are several signs that point to the End Times, Graham continues, including evidence of greed, sin, immorality, selfishness, a turning away from God, dishonesty and pride, to name a few.

Matthew 24:37-39 says...

"As the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be."
