It seems that lately every newscast is filled with doom and gloom. A major oil spill threatens the American way of life on the Gulf and possibly the East coasts. Weekly, if not daily, suicide bombings rock cities and kill scores of people in Afghanistan, Iraq, and various other Middle Eastern countries. Now, America has even a near-miss in Manhattan.
Earthquakes, floods, hail storms, tornadoes, and volcanoes punctuate daily life. Politicians on every level are known for their lying and manipulative ways and above all else have proven that they can’t be trusted. Cities, counties, states, and several countries such as Greece, Portugal, and Spain are facing possible bankruptcies.
America’s ravenous spending has led to a national debt that is totally out of control. It now stands at just over $40,000 for each and every citizen that lives in America. Families are divided, schools are divided, workplaces are divided, America is divided, and the world is divided.
Religions say that people should worship everything from animals, rocks and trees, spirits, demons, men and women, money, fame, idols, yourself, historical figures, beings from outer space, and some, even God himself.
With trouble on every side is it possible that God is trying to tell us something? Is it possible that since so many people have turned away from him he is granting their wishes and allowing them to see what life is like without him?
Is the end of time near? Read Jesus’ prophecies of Matthew chapter 24. Without a doubt God is speaking to us today! The question is this: “Are we listening?”
