Sane and Sensible Perspectives on the Last Days

Are we really in the Last Days that the Bible describes? The answer to that is a definite "Yes!"

God is giving us never-before-seen signs that Jesus' Return is on our horizon. The "Signs of the Second Coming" are all around us! But will we have to go through the terrible events the Bible predicts are coming? Again, the answer is definitely yes. The scriptures speak clearly to the question, "When Is the Rapture?" So, be prepared to be surprised if you've been thrown off track, because the timeline Jesus and the apostles gave us has nothiing in common with the popular "Left Behind" series.

Once we've settled that issue, then the importance of understanding "Crucial Components of the Last Days" will also be clear. Since we will have to go through them, we definitely need to know as much as we can about the players and the events in advance. And that leads us right into the all-important step of "Preparing for the Last Days." Be sure you don't neglect this, for there is much more to being prepared than meets the eye, or than is mentioned in most sermons on the subject. Finally, there will be a need to stay informed by recent events. That's where "Prophetic Updates" come in!

Prophetic Updates  I make absolutely no claim to be a prophet. The "visions" I typically receive are of a personal guidance or individual ministry nature, not of End Times Prophetic Updatesevents (so far). Nor am I receiving direct revelations from the Lord about the Last Days (so far). But I am receiving a lot from the scriptures. And I do want to stay up to date with what the Lord is revealing to others. Many I glean from are Christians; some are careful observers of the times. We have a lot to learn from each other! Whatever I learn--once I have sifted it--I wll post here in the spirit of "sane and sensible perspectives on the Last Days."
