    Here is a list of all the crisis's we are facing (that I can think of) this decade and in the next decade to come. Even if you are not religious, you have to admit the world is in major turmoil. I honestly wonder if this is what the decline of the Roman Empire looked like. If this doesn't change your mind about us living the end times, then I do not know what will.

    Special thanks to @Anthony7, @Glorytothefather2245 and others for their contributions to this list.

    Empathy on the decline and Narcissism on the rise
    "But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people." ~2 Timothy 3:1-5

    I think a main thing missed, is that love of money is the root of all evil (deception for money , etc)...
    So the scientists follow the money, not the truth, most all the time.

    THIS changes or shows to be wrong several of the op links, when the love of money is found to be the motive for the so-called 'science'/ etc .....

    Exactly why the Evolution myth is so rarely challenged. Scientists need money for research. Antichrist forces hold the purse strings.

    "Beloved, this is now my second letter to you. Both of them are reminders to stir you to wholesome thinking by recalling what was foretold by the holy prophets and commanded by our Lord and Savior through your apostles.

    Most importantly, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires. “Where is the promise of His coming?” they will ask. “Ever since our fathers fell asleep, everything continues as it has from the beginning of creation.”

    But they deliberately overlook the fact that long ago by God’s word the heavens existed and the earth was formed out of water and by water, through which the world of that time perished in the flood. And by that same word, the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men."


    2 Peter 3:1-7

    The fact that all of these major crisis's are happening around the same time is very unsettling and should not be ignored.

    "Unsettling" ?

    Why ?

    "be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication ....

    How To Be Anxious For Nothing But In Everything By Prayer
    [​IMG]How To Be Anxious For Nothing But In Everything By Prayer
    The Bible commands us, "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus" (Phil 4:6-7).

    No, of course not. It is not needed either (no research).

    Many Blessings are repeatedly recorded IN SCRIPTURE, for all who are born again to ENJOY, REJOICE, in Peace, Joy and Righteousness UNLIMITED, IN UNION WITH JESUS and with THE FATHER.... !!!!

    Just READ THE BIBLE ! trusting the heavenly Father to accomplish everything about Salvation He Says!

    With all the evil today, including much revealed in the urls where men say something is good that is evil, and they say something is evil that God says is good,
    I think it is obvious that it is way way worse today(more dangerous and more deceptive by far)
    all over the earth
    than it was ever before in history.

    I wonder if we truly know or understand that our Father the great I am is doing more GOOD then ALL the bad in this world? There are more GOOD things happening... yes end times but the Father holy JESUS.. praise GOD glory to JESUS..is doing far more good then all the evil bad things.

    Just a few years ago..in one day saw over a million come to Christ. Never made any headlines.. world or Christian.

    There is more good that is not publicized anywhere,
    but not more good than bad.

    Perhaps one third of the world will come to Christ, but when one third of the world is killed or dies by violence, famine, plague, whatever,
    it is written that the two thirds (twice as many) that remain
    REFUSE to stop worshiping (serving) demons....

    I’ve always wondered myself, bc you always hear going back every generation believes theirs is seeing the end times or a drastic rise in evil, and yet if evil were truly escalating at the rate people are purporting then wouldn’t it be at an astonishingly high level now? Or is it even now at an astonishingly high level? And how do we compare to the “days of Noah” or Sodom and Gomorrah, or the Canaanite nations that God had judged and chosen to drive out in the days of Moses? Are we the same? Worse? Just bc He hasn’t sent another worldwide flood doesn’t mean we don’t deserve it—it just means He’s good at keeping His promises.
