Looking up

And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up you heads, for you redemption draweth nigh (St. Luke 21:28).

The world’s leaders are scrambling for the solution to our world’s problems. So far, not one of them knows how to solve our world’s evils.

The natural man cannot understand the cause of our world’s problems. The extreme immorality, violence, crime and the wars, we are being faced with as predicted by the Bible. One would think that a people that can produce the marvels of technology by sending men to walk on the moon and just recently sent a robot to crawl on the surface of mars.

Why can’t man solve human evils that are so rapidly destroying the very world we are living in?

Think of our situation we continue with wars, violence, crime, immorality, dishonesty and deceit, and on the other side of this let’s look at the 40 years before the 1990s, we recorded 142 classified natural disasters just in the United States.

Then during the 10 years of the 1990s there were 72. Since then the world has seen some of the most destructive in the terms of life and property, earthquakes, they are the deadliest natural destruction so far.

It’s been recorded that eight out of 10 of the most populace cities in the world are on earthquake fault lines. The center of Research on Epidemiology of Disasters in Geneva released this statement. There were 3,852 disasters that killed more then 780,000 people over the last 10 years; they affected more than 2 billion others at a cost not less than $960 billion.

Next to earthquakes, are storms (22 percent), extreme temperatures (11 percent) were the most deadly disasters between 2000 and 2009.

The number of catastrophic events has more than doubled since the 1980-1989 decade, says the director of the C.R.E.D.

One may ask the question why such drastic escalation of these natural disasters since 1989 all the earthquakes, tsunamis, destructive storms, floods, fires, mudslides, the extremes of temperatures that take the figure to the maximum since statistics have been recorded. There is a truthful answer to the question of this and to all of the woes of mankind.

Our King James Bible tells of the prophesied events that would come on this disobedient world. The same way he forewarned his people, should they disobey him. There is a prophecy in our Bible that speaks of the world no longer being held back from these disasters.

They have been held back for several reasons, mainly to allow for the good news of his coming back to earth for those that have made themselves ready for his return. This message of his return must first be preached “in all the world for a witness to all nations” (Matthew 24:14).

After that, these events written about would no longer be delayed. These events would be done to shock the world with such force, hoping to grab the attention of humanity.

This is to be a warning sign to those that know better than to live their lives of immoral godlessness that has so taken over our society today.

It was Jesus Christ himself who said that before his return to earth.

“There shall be famines and pestilences and earthquakes in diver places” (Matthew 24:7).

Jesus said that his own true and loyal followers would be persecuted at a time of great religious moral and social confusion.

We are in that time of no more delays; we are witnessing a destabilized world, accelerating natural disasters, political upheavals, wars and rumors of wars, economical and financial disasters and great moral and social disintegration.

This will continue until mankind gets the message. The King James Bible is clear concerning being ready for Jesus’ return to get his church for those that have made themselves ready.

In the Bible, Jesus told Nicodemus he must be born again in order to go to heaven.

The Book of Acts, Chapter 1 and 2, explains how one is to be born again. The New Testament Church was born (started) in the book of Acts the same message was preached and those that believed, repented and was baptized in the name of (Jesus) and received the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in other tongues.

The Apostle Paul said, “Which is Christ in you the hope of glory” (Colossians 1:27).
