“And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? ….”
Then Jesus answered…
“For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in many places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.
But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be…”
It used to be that when you heard something bad happening on the News, it was in other countries. Not so anymore! It’s right here on American soil. This WORLD is a nightmare!!
Crazy’s bombing and shooting innocent folks in the most unlikely places…at concerts, riding their bicycles, running marathons for charity, shopping in department stores…and the list goes on. NO PLACE IS SAFE ANYMORE!!!!!
But Jesus said that these were signs of His return. It could be at any moment now. The countdown has started!
I wrote a poem about this a few years back. When God created Eden, it was perfect, and He wanted it to stay that way; but sin came in, and this world is more like hell now! Please forgive me if I’ve already posted this. It’s called…
This can’t be it! It’s all too wrong! This world’s gone topsy-turvy!
But when you voice that view out loud…folks think you’re being ‘nervy’.
But read the paper if you dare…or listen to the news…
The things you hear, will make you sick! ….Or maybe, blow your fuse.
Students having sex with teachers,
Sordid, hidden affairs, involving famous T.V. preachers.
Disease and pestilence, with no known cure,
Oceans, tainted and polluted…no longer pure.
Child abuse, and neglect on the rise…
Career’s more important…the family’s demise.
Abortion, rape and murder…things now learned at a young age;
Some learn these things within their own homes from their drunken father’s rage!
High school students killed in accidents, due to alcohol and drugs;
Drive-by shootings, day-by-day, done by gangsters, and little thugs!
Crack houses, and Meth labs found in neighborhoods of respect…
So…you think you know your neighbors? HA! Everyone now is ‘suspect’!
There’s “Doggy Day Care”, and Pet Cemetary plots,
While countless numbers of the Human Race, live homeless, under the bridge and rot!
Half the world is starving to death, but we throw good food away!
Animal activists rally for the rights of our Dumb Friends…
But who speaks for the unborn that are aborted by the millions everyday??
Sunday School teachers, and Preachers alike, molesting their parishioner’s children
Instead of being the Shepherds of the flock…they’re now known as the “Villain.”
Then there’s this preacher from my home-state, marching against the gays;
Picketing our dead soldiers funerals with mindless followers…crazed!
The worst part is…he encourages his followers to join in and participate!
Instead of teaching them the love of God…he’s teaching them to hate!
And how about the barren woman so desperate and wild
Slicing open a pregnant woman for her unborn child…
Now, as if things here aren’t bad enough…here…in our own little ‘pea patch’
Just look at news around the world…you’re sure to find a match!
Religious leaders, condoning terrorist acts, all in the name of God;
Acts of atrocity by one nation against another…Holy Wars, known as Jihad.
No regard for your neighbor…no sense of ‘fair play’.
Remember how 9-11 left countless widowed and fatherless?
In case you haven’t noticed…this world is in a deplorable mess!
Incest, same gender marriage, and Middle School girls having babies;
No regrets, no remorse…no promises kept!
The best we can do now is, “UMMM…just, ‘maybe.’
No right or wrong…no black or white,
Everything now is just gray.
Words like, Values, self-control, and integrity
Aren’t politically correct to say!
The uneducated and poor, as well as the rich with degrees
Use alcohol and drugs for depression…
The world-wide pandemic disease!
Instead of giving discipline with love like God commands
Well…just put your kid in a dark closet…or..
Maybe a dog kennel, until he understands!
And what about the mom that strapped her kids into car seats
And them drove them into the lake?
People! Wake up! What is it going to take?
And let’s talk about that one-eyed monster…
That thing, we call T.V.
You can turn to almost any channel
And see pornography!
It’s evident what’s lacking here!
It’s GOD that we are needing!
Because, from what I see..
This is more like hell…
I’m sure…it isn’t EDEN!
