Jesus Is Coming!

I'm tired. Just tired of it all. My 78 year old body and mind are exhausted, but we have to embrace Jesus and look up. I can feel deep in my soul that He is coming for us very soon. He said He would come "at such a time as we think not" and I've tried to imagine that scenario but I can't. So all I can do is what He said to do...watch and pray.
Come quickly, Lord Jesus! :rapture

Me too. I'm not 78. I'm 31. But I'm exhausted by everything.

Come soon, Lord Jesus. Your bride is waiting

I'm tired of it and I'm not even American. I was hoping for a red wave, but the dems are just too slick and blatant in their cheating. Inventors of evil, as Romans 1:30 would say. I think God is allowing these things to pry us away from this world and for us to look heavenward, where Christ is.

A stolen election is not an end in itself; it's a means to an end, and if you look at the propaganda of the ones stealing elections, what that end is should be clear: a hundred million dead in the wake of the communist empire, and many times that number enslaved, tell us what our future holds if this lawlessness is not stopped, and reversed.

I hope this is leading to the end of the age and the return of our Savior, because if it isn't, we are in for a very bad time, and it won't end in seven years. I am not so concerned for myself, since there is no reason for me to fear what happens in this life, whether or not we are entering the end times. But I do not like what we have bequeathed to our children.

One thing many of us might not have thought of that makes me think end times prophecy might be right before us is the passivity on the part of so many millions of Americans who call themselves patriot, and on the part of what we thought were patriots in the political leadership and media. This to me seems unnatural in the face of such blatant lawlessness, with so much history telling us how dangerous our passivity is. So maybe God has laid a spirit of passivity on this land so that America can fall, in order that the end times can be carried out.
What do you think should be done, and specifically by the church? We are followers of Him, not the USA or any other country. I see my goal as helping who I can come to Him, before its too late.

Andy,
Yes this. When I’m in my secular mind, I am angry and frustrated by Americans who have taken their freedom for granted. They have always grown up this way and think they will always just have it. Brittany Griner is now understanding this in the REAL.
That stated I have to believe that God wants us (Christians) to divorce ourselves from “America” and set our eyes on HIM. This country is going down like the rest of the world, as it should. Let’s focus on our witness and not concern ourselves with Pelosi, Mconnell, Schumer, Soros, Biden, McCarthy, et. al.
I’m in Michigan. I am So SAD about what this state voted for and it wasn’t voter fraud. These people voted to embrace abortion in all its forms. It isn’t going to end well for them. BUT, I need to be light and salt. Not the bitter old man I ‘feel’ like being.

If I remember my history right most of our founding fathers were Christian (and a few Deists), and I'd guess that for the most part their faith was probably as strong as yours and mine. They wanted a secular federal government, because they did not want a centralized government setting up an official state religion, but that doesn't mean they were not Christian, as some liberals claim. The churches were active at the time in organizing patriots, because those where where people tended to meet (there and public houses). It looks to me like a time is coming when we either fight to defend our country, or be herded like cattle into death camps like the Jews were. I think we should be organized so that we are able.

Lets pray this side of the rapture it does not come down to this.

As I read the history of Israel in the Bible a common theme is that the king turned away from God and the people followed; it isn't always like that but it often is. This is what happened in America (though the king is not only government but media too, fiction as well as the fake nonfiction). I think a big step in this process was a few decisions made by a corrupt Supreme Court, that illegally outlawed organized prayer in public schools (this was clearly not the intent of the 1st Amendment, or the 14th either). I think this had a much bigger effect on the people as a whole than many of us like to think, because it was the beginning of the marginalization of Christian culture.

Since then those same schools have been preaching liberal dogma, even to the point that liberal dogma is in effect an official state religion; this is so deeply entrenched that you can curse our Savior all day and it's no big deal (at least in this life), but speak God's truth about a liberal sacred cow like homosexuality or feminism and you risk expulsion. The schools have been turned into indoctrination centers for a cult of devil worshippers. We allowed this to happen, so it's on us too; we even paid for it. (And when I say we I mean myself too, because I didn't do anything to try to stop it.) So do we bear some responsibility for it?

History tells me that in any time and place there will always be huge masses of people who can be led like cattle by the prevailing propaganda, especially when it becomes part of the education system, and the message of the world is more seductive to short-sighted people than God's message, because it's easy for those people to only want to see the world, and forget about the afterlife. So what is happening in America today is like what happened in countries like Germany under the National Socialists: those who accept liberal dogma and vote liberal today would have been cheering for the Nazis, and those who support abortion would have willingly turned on the gas valve at Auschwitz.

Nothing happens without God allowing it. There is a reason why God allows His enemy to be the god of this world; I am not aware of the Bible telling us why He does this, but I think it implies that God uses this world as a filtration system, with His enemy making it an active filter. So I suppose all is as it should be, even though the evil that surrounds us sickens those who have rejected the world and are part of God's kingdom.

So my question is (not something I'm asking you necessarily, but one I ask myself and anyone who's interested in thinking about these things): does God want us to remain passive in the face of this level of evil, even in a nation where the citizens have some control over their government and culture, or does He want us to do what we can to try to right these wrongs, do what we can to remove the evil rulers and replace them with those who are part of His kingdom (and again, this includes not only political rulers but cultural rulers of media too)?

If we are indeed in the end times as I think we might be there is nothing we can do to stop this, and trying will be like a swimmer trying to swim to shore while the tide carries him out to sea. If we are entering into the end times I welcome it, and look forward to the return of the true King. But there have been times in the past when people thought they were in the end times and it turned out they weren't. Our Lord told us what to look for but He did not tell us when they would come. It is clear that He wants us to be prepared for the end times at every moment. So does that mean He wants us to do nothing about the rampant evil around us, or does He want us to be actively trying to turn it around?

As I drive around, in older neighborhoods especially, I see many areas where there are big nice churches. I can remember when America was much more a Christian nation than it is now, and the majority of people generally tried to be Bible believing Christians. It was a corrupt government and media that led masses of simple-minded people to reject God and take us to where we are now. That was partly our fault, because we knew it was happening and didn't do anything to stop it (or didn't do enough). If we are in the end times, that's fine and good. But if we are not, I will never give up hope for turning this nation and this world around. If I try and fail, at least I tried.
