I found this on the web, what do you think about it? Be open minded, dont just not read it because it talks about the rapture. Just read it and compare it with the word of God. I will post it in several posts because its long. Check it out!!! The Signs of His Coming by Michael G. Mickey http://www.rapturealert.com/signsofhiscoming.html The signs are as follows: The Gospel will be preached in all the world before the physical return of Jesus Christ to the earth occurs at Armageddon, although exhaustive efforts are presently underway to accomplish this: Matthew 24:14: And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. There will be a mixture of believers and false believers within the Church body: Matthew 13:24-30: Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares? He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn. There will be scoffers: The Bible tells us one of the key signs of the end times will be people doubting the return of Christ will ever happen. 2nd Peter 3:3-4: Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, 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. Humanity will be able to cross the globe rapidly and science will be advancing: Daniel 12:4: But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased. Perilous times will come for mankind: 2nd Timothy 3:1: This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. Mankind will deny God once flooded the earth: 2nd Peter 3:5-6: For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: The earth will be swimming in a sea of violence: As it was in the days of Noah (Luke 17:26), so it shall be at the end. How was the earth in Noah's time? Look no further than Genesis 6:11: The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. There will be warfare all over the globe: Mark 13:8: For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: Mankind will have the capability to destroy all life on the planet: Unique to our generation, this prophecy could not have been fulfilled prior to the invention of weapons of mass destruction such as the nuclear bomb. Matthew 24: 22: And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened. Deadly diseases will be rampant: Matthew 24:7: For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. Famines will be common: Matthew 24:7: For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. Earthquakes will be occurring globally: Matthew 24:7: For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. There will be violent weather: Luke 21:25- And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Children will be disobedient and rebellious: 2nd Timothy 3:2: For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Christians and Jews will be hated for their faith in and connection with Christ: Luke 21:17: And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake.
