Russia, Iran, and Turkey Forming a Biblical Alliance

I agree. What I don’t understand is what future? Our country is tanking because of the bumbler and his handlers. The coming recession will make it very difficult to own a home, if you can find one for sale that isn’t already priced out of reach and because there’s not many for sale, they actually start bidding on the property without even seeing it! Rent has gone through the roof, if you can find a place open. Prices for food, fuel, power, water, and the basics are out of control. I know I sound like “Debbie Downer” but this is what this generation is facing. Frankly, I would not trade places with them for any amount of money!

In NC, the housing market has hit the housing market that I grew up with in Northern CA. And then getting married isn’t in style anymore, so move in together and then children, all wrong, but accepted like homosexual, LGBTQ’s, homosexual pastors, marriage, ad nauseam…. I am so glad that I don’t have an young children that are school age and one of my granddaughters goes to a legitimate Christian school where her dad works as a teacher! The other, …..a long story and not a good one. I can’t imagine sending them off to public school that’s become a sewer. And faith? If you can find a Bible teaching church you have found a treasure! When we first moved out here in the early 80’s, this was the part of the Bible Belt! Churches were Bible teaching houses of worship that weren’t afraid of offending members by telling them the truth about fire and brimstone and the hell that awaits those who refuse to accept Jesus as Lord and Savior!

I remember going to the grocery store and on Sunday, the meat was all covered up until after 1:00 PM, if then. Stores didn’t sell any alcohol on Sundays and the ABC store wasn’t open. Liquor sales where I grew up, were sold in any grocery or convenience store - still are. This area was so alien, but in a good way! Now, this same area has turned into living just like the place where I grew up. There’s not a lot of difference, although we are still not the way they are now, thank You Lord!

I hear more and more young adults say that they are Christians and believe in the Rapture, but they want to live their lives first, then let Jesus return for them!
Typical but understandable on last sentence.

Be patient with young adults. I was one of those young adults who wanted to live a bit of life before the rapture. I think you have to live this life a bit, and grow closer to God for a bit, before the yearning for home becomes stronger. I'm 41 (no comments on me being "a youngin' still"!) and I have only in the last handful of years really felt the longing to go home. I went from wanting to live my life first, to "being cool" with the rapture happening, to waiting quite impatiently at times for the rapture. It is because of the deepening relationship with God, based on life's ups and downs, that has brought me here. Although the daily news doesn't help...

Neither does this article. Just come on already!

Oh I am. The thing is, patience is becoming thin due to personal experience. Our DD is one and I am praying about her salvation. I know, from experience, all about what you’ve brought up and more. All of this makes me groan for our Lord’s return!

Even so Lord Jesu, come quickly!

Boy are you right especially the recent signs appear to apply to events AFTER the Rapture. In my 50 years of studying prophecy NEVER have I felt closer to going home than I Do now. Come soon Lord Jesus...
Thank you for sharing that. I've wanted to ask people here that have been pre-trib for a long time what they think about everything going on in the world today. It really seems like the rapture could happen very, very soon, but I wonder sometimes if that's how most pre-trib people feel all the time, just because we're so excited to see the Lord.

:wooo

It is exactly how I was as a young adult…wanting to live life first. I remember in 1997 I was pregnant with my first baby and my Dad, who was wildly excited for the rapture and convinced it was about to happen, told me Jesus was coming on Rosh Hashana that year, three months before my due date, and I was not happy about it…wanted to have my baby and be a mother far more than I wanted to go home to heaven. As it turns out my Dad learned a painful lesson about date setting, and I got my wish to be a mum….but oh how things have changed now…all I want is for Jesus to come…but it’s taken years for me to get to this place in my heart…I was about 42 when the Lord started pulling me closer to himself….56 now and longing for heaven. Come Lord Jesus!

You could be the author of my life lol.. 41 and share the exact same story. How wonderful is it that God is slow to anger and exceedingly patient with us, realizing now that the wages of sin is death and that is what is owed to us apart from Christ ?

"The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance." - 2 Peter 3:9

People have been talking about this "growing alliance" for at least 5ish years now. It doesn't really seem to be worth getting excited over at this point yet.
Yes, but takes on more significance every day—-one example being the fast-growing prominence of Iran and their practicing alliance with Russia (latest example being the satellite). Look how far Iran has come in being a major “respected” player in Middle-Eastern policy in the last 5 years!
