    End times preaching and weather men. No matter what goes wrong, they always have a job.

    I Love YHWH! But... I’m not down with the “end is nigh” signs.

    William Miller anyone?

    We do know that when the Love of many is grown cold... stuff will get super real. :)

    The only thing it depends on is How long a generation is according to God right now, since it's seen as 70, 80 and even 100/120 years in the Bible. I can't remember exactly how many different years a generation is listed as but those are close. Most people right now are assuming it is 70.

    I hope so.

    I'm not exactly hoping for the end , I know too many unsaved people yet. Sometimes I think people/Christians are anxious to get out of here before the action picks up any more and not thinking of loved ones left behind. Just a thought, not an accusation.

    I feel like you have to find a balance between loving the appearing of the Lord and trying to win souls for every minute you have until then

    I don't know who William Miller is and I sure don't give a hoot.

    All I know is... :) Yahweh is the one we should be focusing our attention on...

    The only William Miller that I know of was a NY Congressman who was Goldwater's running mate in the 1964 Presidential race. However, I just did a quick Google search and see that a William Miller was a Baptist preacher who lived from 1782-1849.

    Everyone tries to say when, they are always wrong. No one knows the day or hour of His coming back, only the Father

    OP: Q: ""age of Grace" is coming to an end (soon) ?"

    A:

    Matthew 24...Jesus' prophecy and SIGNS of the "end of the (CHURCH) age" of Grace

    QUESTIONS:
    3 As He (Jesus) was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the DISCIPLES came to Him privately, saying,
    “Tell us, (prophesy!)
    1. WHEN will these THINGS happen, and
    2. what will be the SIGN(s) of "Your (Second) COMING", and
    3. (what will be the SIGN(s)) of "the end of the (Church) age"?”

    ANSWERS:
    1. v. 36 "But of that day and hour no one knows, (WHEN tribulations / things BEGIN)
    not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone.
    3.. v. 2-28...THINGS / SIGNS of .."birth pangs"...tribulation...great tribulation...to the brink...THEN
    2. v. 29-31... Jesus' Glorious Return from Heaven!

    BIRTH PANGS = NOW!

    4 And Jesus answered and said to them,
    “See to it that no one misleads you.
    5 For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ (a savior)
    and will mislead many. (Believers AND UnBelievers?)
    You will be hearing of:
    1. wars and rumors of wars.
    See that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end. (of tribulation)
    For:
    2. nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom,
    and in various places there will be:
    3.famines and
    4.earthquakes.
    But all these things (signs) are merely "the beginning of birth pangs".

    Seven years of Tribulation / Great Tribulation described in Daniel ~11-12 have not begun!

    9 “THEN they will deliver you to tribulation,
    and will kill you, and you will be hated by all nations because of My name.
    10 At that time many will fall away (APOSTASY) and will betray one another and hate one another.
    11 Many false prophets will arise and will mislead many.
    12 Because lawlessness is increased,
    most (BELIEVING) people’s love will "grow cold".
    13 But the one who endures to the end, (OF THE TRIBULATIONS)
    he will be saved.(FROM DEATH OR WORSE)
    14 This "gospel of the kingdom" (Jesus the Divine Messiah has come to save Man!) shall be preached in the whole world
    as a testimony to all the NATIONS,
    and THEN the end (OF THE TRIBULATIONS) will come.

    Only God knows the number that will be saved and the last day will not come until those who are to be saved, have been. So no fears that anything would short change one that could have been saved. But, it is our commission to spread God's word so that the full number does come and as quickly as possible.

    Just as the OT people longed for Jesus' coming, we should also.

    2 Peter 3:12 as you look forward to the day of God and speed its coming. That day will bring about the destruction of the heavens by fire, and the elements will melt in the heat.
    13 But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, where righteousness dwells. 14 So then, dear friends, since you are looking forward to this, make every effort to be found spotless, blameless and at peace with him. 15 Bear in mind that our Lord’s patience means salvation, just as our dear brother Paul also wrote you with the wisdom that God gave him.

    Romans 11:25 I do not want you to be ignorant of this mystery, brothers and sisters, so that you may not be conceited: Israel has experienced a hardening in part until the full number of the Gentiles has come in,

    When the age of grace comes to a close, it is said that all will be revealed. Privacy is dead, right? Once the Bible has been preached throughout all the world then the end will come. Now can only be that time. Things long hidden are being revealed.
