English: Resurrection of Christ (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
I’ll jump right into it. I only wish I could devote every day to writing posts sharing with all of you, my brothers and sisters, of whats about to come. I’ll be honest, this post will be kinda rough due to the fact that I’m trying my hardest to write a rushed article on a topic I find to be extremely important. So please forgive me but don’t let that be any reason as to why you would take this lightly.
*Deep breath* and sigh. The End is Near. I don’t know how familiar you all are with your bible but I’ll say that over the last few months or so I’ve devoted my time to becoming a new Christian and embracing the Christian faith. And let me tell you, what I’ve learned has been a complete shock and life changing experience, as well as possibly life “SAVING”.
I’ll start by asking this, do you know that we can live forever? As in eternity. And in fact we all will. But here’s the twist, some of us will spend eternity in heaven, while some in hell… Yes, unbelievable, I know. But its true. As well as the fact that Jesus Chris is real and exists is true. He is alive and out there at this very moment. And He will be coming back here to Earth, soon. And if you read the Bible I’m sure you may know this, and if you haven’t read it before you’ve lucked out because that’s the reason for this post and God has led you to it for a reason…so trust Him, I mean He is the everlasting creator of everything after all. His word stands firm and true.
But what I’ll do is I’ll try to give you a few brief verses to explain and back up all of what I’m trying get across.
First, how do I know that Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is coming back? Because He says so.
“But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only.
Behold, he is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see him, even those who pierced him, and all tribes of the earth will wail on account of him. Even so. Amen.
For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord.
And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also.
“Behold, I am coming soon, bringing my recompense with me, to repay everyone for what he has done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.”
“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.”
Here’s a link that will take you to a list of verses if this isn’t enough: http://www.openbible.info/topics/jesus_coming_back
Now we don’t know WHEN He’s coming back but he gives us a few hints..
1. War, Violence, and Lawlessness.
2. Drought and Famine.
3. Earthquakes and other Natural Catastrophes.
4. Disease Epidemics.
5. The Rise of an Aggressive, Fundamentalist Islamic Power.

Have you noticed any of those things happening lately? O.o Keep in mind God controls everything and we are only living out His plan.
How do I know that we can live forever? Because He tells us that too!
I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand.
He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”
For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
By this we know love, that he laid down his life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for the brothers.
How much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without blemish to God, purify our conscience from dead works to serve the living God.
And night will be no more. They will need no light of lamp or sun, for the Lord God will be their light, and they will reign forever and ever.
Just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding cities, which likewise indulged in sexual immorality and pursued unnatural desire, serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire.

There’s sooooooooooo much more than just this and you can either heed the warnings or you can turn your back and face trials when the time comes for yourself. But maybe all the “Holy Rollers” have a point, after all they read the word with their own eyes. But before I sum this up I’ll leave you with two lists. One containing my favorite and what I consider to be important verses and the other containing topics you can look up for yourself.
Verses EVERYONE should read:
Matthew 5:1-and so on– (and I leave that verse open because I can read on and on from there, it’s filled with so much good word)
1 Corinthians 15:1-and so on – The Resurrection of Christ
2 Corinthian 9:6- and so on – Generosity Encouraged
2 Corinthians 13:1-14 – Final Warnings
1 Thessalonians 4:1-28 -Living To Please God, Believers Who Died, The Day of the Lord, Final Instructions
Revelation 22:12-21 – Epilogue: Invitation and Warning
There’s so much more than just these, I hope you find yourself reading more and striving further for Him.
Topics EVERYONE should look up:
New World Order
Use Youtube, it’s your friend, and there’s a lot you can learn there. You just have to seek.
Matthew 7:7-12 –
Ask, Seek, Knock
7 “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.8 For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.
9 “Which of you, if your son asks for bread, will give him a stone? 10 Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? 11 If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him! 12 So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.
And Remember that God loves you as for we are all His children and He wants us to live with Him forever in His kingdom.
