"...the time is at hand." Rev 22:10

When we see all that is taking place in the world today, with Israel becoming a burdensome stone to all of the nations of the world. With evil men and seducers waxing worse and worse. With idolatry rising in all shapes and forms, and being accepted as what is respectable. Blasphemy spewing from the media of all types. Government placing wickedness before righteousness. Murder being exalted, and promoted as a personal choice, while the murderers receive special treatment from the state. Churches giving in, and accepting wickedness, even allowing it a platform upon which to stand. The Bible, which is our privilege to have and hold, being pushed out of all public arenas. (While our society would not even exist without it.) Pastors are giving in to the contemporary crowd, and bringing in rock bands to appease an unregenerate congregation. We (who still believe the truth) sometimes sit back and wonder how much longer it will be before the Lord returns, and takes vengeance on such a wicked place as we live in. Let us not despair, for the time surely is at hand. We must remember that wickedness and violence is nothing new to this world. Before our days were the times when you would be subject to be burned at the stake for holding to the truth of the word of God. Certainly these are wicked and dark days that we live in, but remember that Christians have always lived lives of adversity, and yet peace. There should be no doubt in our minds that the Lord will soon return, so let us be faithful, and diligent that we be found at all times serving him.
