    I watched the video. I don't know about 2014. A lot of people are expecting something soon: global economic collapse, natural disaster in a major city, etc. Now all this racial tension in America over one case that had nothing to do with race. I think a lot of people have had enough with the "status" today: widespread war, unemployment, unprecedented weather patterns. They want something drastic, because they want change (hence Obama's entire campaign theme: hope and change).

    What I do know is that this atmosphere is necessary for the false prophet. So many people are preaching "doom is near" that we will probably bring it on ourselves. When the false prophet does arrive, performing signs and wonders (preaching a new great kingdom), most people will bow down, and faith in Jesus Christ will be abandoned by many.

    It always makes me think twice. When we're in the midst of extreme suffering and praying for Jesus Christ to return, that will also be the best time for the false prophet to make his entrance and deceive as many as possible (even the elect, if it's possible). It's important to remember: when Jesus Christ does return, He will be seen very obviously by all nations, coming on the clouds of heaven, and we will know.

    Miss Purple,
    in exchange for viewing this please find the audio thread by Pastor Preston called 'the woman on the beast'. It is a bit of work, but it is a historical treatment of the unfaithful/harlot woman (Israel) mounted on Rome's authority to persecute Christians, as envisioned in the Rev. And then destroyed by Rome in 70 AD.

    I can't really answer your question because Jesus said no one will know. We can guess and I'm sure with billions of people on the Earth someone may "accidentally" be right. Jesus gave us signs and TOLD us to watch. He wants us to be aware and not be asleep. I have been reading about the rapture for a while.. and it makes me happy and joyful. I do not worry about it but look forward to his coming. I do believe that we will see all the signs before though. When the moon is red, and the sun is darkened and we are all ruled under the antichrist.. then we will know the time is even closer.

    Thoughts on video? Fool.

    Can rapture happen before 2014? Yes
    Can rapture happen after 2014? Yes

    This pretty much sums up my thoughts as well. Obviously the rapture could occur at any time but you're right: when Jesus returns it will be obvious to anyone and I've heard many great arguments for both a pre and post-trib rapture, as well as some who don't believe there will be one at all. None of us know for certain but with America continuing to collapse as a world power and the international economy still in the dumps I think the stage could be set for the antichrist to rise up and proclaim a "fix" for all of these problems.

    It's fun to speculate and anticipate the Lord's return but in the meantime there is still much work to be done and we should be vigilant to continue on the path that He's laid before us.:)

    Even people that don't believe in God believes something is going to happen soon. It's because our nation if you live in the us is borrowing money and printing money with no regard for consequences.

    A video by an economist who accurately predicted the res-session.. I think everyone should watch it. Look on youtube under "The Aftershock Survival Summit. It is not Christian based but it is facts and makes sense. It's also NOT a doomsday thing either. I will warn you though he promotes his book a lot in it.

    Hey Miss Purple, did you absorb the audio linked material yet? At least it is good to know it is a reasonable option in trying to understand these things.

    why can the rapture happen in 2014?

    the gathering to Christ at His Coming (rapture to some) is at the last day, after all the signs...
    its even after the resurrection of the dead

    certainly after the trib.

    as for the video....
    I did not watch it, but after doug's expose, I don't have to.

    obv. full of supposition and error, although I do like the Rev12 part
    as it is obviously a star pattern on a specific date
    problem is that the pattern has happened before and will again...

    which date will it be?
    the one that has the rest of the signs incorporated at that day

    be sure to listen to the audio of 'the woman on the beast' so you know there is historic grounding to factor in all your study. It is a link here for Miss Purple, and a separate thread.

    Because China practices internet censorship. (It does this in order to protect its Communist Party ruling elites from any popular uprisings which could be sparked by information available on the internet.)

    Something certainly shall.

    So if the US goes broke, in the Great Scheme of Things, so what? Empires come and go, always have.

    Oh no, you're being deprived of access to the world's largest collection of unmitigated hogwash. :D

    Then again, there are some terrific cooking vids on there. Thanks to Youtube, I can now make fried tofu as good as, if not better than, my mom used to make. I'm getting pretty deft at kimchee cheegae, too.
