Welcome to my musings. Read, think, respond, enjoy.

Thanks. I look forward to hearing from you.
I saw an article on my news page today that really bothered me - "Americans skeptical about end of world" (click title to read it) It doesn't surprise me, but it does bother me.
It doesn't surprise me because the Bible already said it would be thus. I did a post earlier on the Bible Blog, called Warnings (click to read), and how they are ignored and this is more of the same.
The Bible clearly says in 2 Peter 3:3 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.
The same chapter goes on to tell us that it is God's mercy and longsuffering that has held back the coming so far - 2Pe 3:9 ¶ The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
The very last words that Jesus had recorded in His written Word is about His grace and notice that HE IS COMING!
Re 22:20 ¶ He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
You may be among those who do not believe that Jesus is coming but whether you believe it or not will not change the fact HE IS COMING!
Over and over we are told He is coming again. 1 Thes 5:1 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.
2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.
3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
You may think everything will just keep going on as it always has, but one day, Jesus will come and take His children out of here and then the time period known as the Tribulation will come on this earth. It will be 7 of the worst years this world has ever known. Read Rev. 6-19 to get an idea.
The child of God will know the sweet fulfillment of this promise : 1 Co 15:52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.
57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
The lost person left behind will be among those who, "said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:" Rev 6:16. The majority of those will die during the tribulation and go into an eternity of torments.
Right now though you have the choice, you can believe God. You can repent of your sin and trust the Lord Jesus Christ as your Saviour and know that if He comes 50 years from now or tonight you are ready. His coming is most in likely sooner than later - don't wait too late to be READY!
Hebrews 10:37 For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry.
