- The Second Coming of Christ (chasingthewind.net)
Jesus will come again. Peter’s writings are an introduction to eschatology, which is the study of the end of time, a study of the end of the world. Christian eschatology is the study of the destiny of humankind as revealed by the bible, including death and the afterlife, Heaven and Hell, the Second Coming of Jesus, the Resurrection of the Dead, the Rapture, the Tribulation, Millennialism, the end of the world, the Last Judgment, and the New Heaven and New Earth of the World to Come.
- Signs of Christ’s Second Coming (vineoflife.net)
“There have always been floods and droughts and earthquakes,” skeptics may say. But your Bible reveals signs to watch for that will show true Christians that the return of Jesus Christ is near. Can you recognize those signs?
Nearly 2,000 years ago, Jesus’ disciples asked Him what would be the sign of His coming and the end of the age. What signs and prophetic trends did Jesus mention in response? We need to know what the Bible says!
- Get Ready! (maryscatholicgarden.wordpress.com)
There is a new group called the “Preppers”, who are stockpiling food, medicine, guns and other supplies. They have a web page instructing their followers in the event of a government takeover of America. Even Fr. Bing, of the Alliance of the Two Hearts, has warned his followers to stockpile food and water, in preparation for the difficult days ahead. Americans feel despondent and depressed, as they watch the moral decay of our culture, and the infringement of our religious freedom.
We have certainly had our share of earthquakes, tsunamis, plagues, wars and famines. But will Jesus come back tomorrow?
A really grim prediction of what lies ahead! I used to wonder why we bothered praying, when we knew the end of the story. But then I realized the reason we desperately need to pray, is to bring as many souls to Christ as possible!
- I Had A Vision of Jesus, Horses & Chariots Yesterday! It Is Closer Than We Think! (lynleahz.com)
From time to time, since I was a child, I have visions and prophetic dreams. When I have a vision, I am fully awake, my eyes are closed, and it’s as if I’m watching a movie. Just imagine what you see when you sit in front of your television set. That’s what I see on the television screens of my closed eyelids. Every time I’ve had one, it happened shortly after the vision, or the prophetic dream.
- Matthew 24 (cayobuay.wordpress.com)
Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.
- On the Cutting Room Floor: Eschatology and Its Discontents (stgregoryschurch.typepad.com)
“Eschatos” is a Greek word meaning “last.” Eschatology is an English word meaning “the study of the last [things that are going to happen].”There are two major kinds of eschatology― prophetic eschatology and apocalyptic eschatology.
- Interacting With “The End” (mattmcmains82.wordpress.com)
Groeschel divides the passage into three parts: 1) The Return of Christ; 2) The Rapture; 3) The Reunion
It is when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with his angels that he will BOTH judge the ungodly and grant relief to believers. Only one coming and judgment is indicated. Groeschel’s second point has to do with the rapture.

There will be no excuse for not taking heed to the words of prophecy for they are a warning to unbelievers to repent and turn to God. Imagine being in a building that is on fire and refusing to use the emergency exit because you think there is a better route. Well there isn’t, there is only one way out and that is through Jesus who is holding open the door for you waiting for you to walk through it! Below is a short video worth watching. Several videos automatically follow this one, should you wish to watch them leave it running. May God open your eyes and your heart to His truth.
