One of the determining factors that weighed heavily on me to begin a Bible Study blog site was the visible evidence that the Lord’s Return (the Rapture) will, must, be very soon. Daily I see more convincing evidence that His return is eminent. So, the Lord impressed upon me to begin to tell the good news and to warn the sloth and sinner of their ways and to Prepare to Meet Thy God.

At the time of this writing, I am 70 years old, soon to be 71 in just a few days. In my lifetime I have seen some really revealing things; things that make me believe that of a surety, Jesus is about to return, just like He said He would. Let’s look at some of these visible signs of His soon return.

In my younger days it was just a common thing for businesses to close on Sundays in respect of The Lord’s Day. Christians and non-Christians alike all closed their places of business in respect for the Holy Day, Sunday, when people went to the Church of their choice and worshipped the Lord and took a day off from work because Sunday was their Day of Rest. Nobody cut their grass or did any kind of work on Sunday nor did you see anyone going fishing or hunting on Sunday. That is just the way it was back then. It was in the early 70s that I saw for the first time a business opening on Sunday. People noticed with disdain and they grumbled a note of unbelief at the nerve of those people to open on Sunday, after all, that is the Lord’s Day! Some vowed that they would not do business with anybody that would open their doors on the Lord’s Day. And then the grumbles and gripes stopped as others saw the door cracked and began to open their doors on Sunday after 1:00.

When I was in school the teachers still paddled unruly students for all kinds of school infractions, like talking out of turn or chewing gum in class or shooting spitballs at the other kids or disrupting class with vulgar body noises. Those and other minor infractions would get you a couple of “licks” with a paddle across the rump. And most of the time if your parents heard about you getting a paddling at school, you got another whipping at home. Discipline was meted out and the kids expected it when they broke the rules at school. Then one day someone said that Dr. Spock said it would hurt the psyche of the little hellions if you paddled them for infractions. Psychologists reasoned that spanking was barbaric and that corporal punishment was just outdated and not necessary today. That was the beginning of the end of discipline in the schools.

In twelve years of public school, I am proud to say that every day began with a short devotional time with Bible reading and a prayer for the safety and learning for the students and teachers. I don’t recall anyone ever complaining that their Constitutional Rights were being violated or that they did not want to participate. It kept school kids aware that there was a higher power and we should be obedient to God’s Word. Times were much better then.

On the news this week they were showing the streets of several major cities in America where there are heroin needles and human feces on the streets. People relieve themselves in public view, on public streets with no apparent shame for their actions. People are acting like dogs and dogs are being treated like people. When the public complains to the Police about enforcing city ordinances about defecating in the streets and open heroin use and discarding filthy needles in the streets, then the Police tell them that the City Fathers tell them to leave them alone. There is no room in the city jails because they are full of others who are incarcerated for all manner of violations.

This week on TV news and on Twitter I witnessed abortionists playing with dead baby bodies after abortions, throwing them around like dolls and playing “wish bone” with them. It is just ungodly the things that men to today in the name of “woman’s choice”. Abortion in America is at an epidemic fever now and it seems that many people, at least in the South, are beginning to be sickened by the blatant killing of babies. It has come to the point that in some cases a full-term baby, born healthy is slaughtered AFTER its birth and calling it abortion. That is nothing short of murder, but our nation’s laws permit such atrocities. Why, recently some Democrats in New York were celebrating that very sick thing. God will judge America for this horrible sin.

On another item I saw several women crawling on the ground around a cow carcass, eating raw flesh of the animal and acting like wild animals. I am convinced that they were demon possessed. I am seeing more and more demonic activity in our land and people just don’t recognize it as such. Satan is having a field day.

Why, just yesterday the news on TV was reporting about how the Democratic House of Representatives has left out the term, “so help me God” from the swearing in of witnesses in House Judicial hearings and testimony before Congress. Taking God out of the swearing in is just another way that our politicians are saying, in effect, we don’t need God in our government.

Everything today seems to be so backwards from how it ought to be. We are calling good things bad and bad things good. In the Book of Isaiah, chapter 5 verses 20 through 24, the Bible says, “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink: Which justify the wicked for reward and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him! Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the LORD of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.”

Since the terrorists flew airplanes into the Twin Towers in New York, America has seemed to go into reverse. We twice elected a Muslim to the Presidency. And the Islamic faith is taking off like wildfire in today’s American society. People seem to be blind as to right and wrong today.

God has declared that sodomy and lesbianism is an abomination in the sight of God but America has not only allowed it in our open society, but there are now laws to protect such activity and given sodomites protected status in the law and call it hate crime to say anything against that sin. In the first chapter of Romans God’s Word says that people who do such things will be turned over to vile affections, uncleanness and a reprobate mind.

It was a black day for America when the Supreme Court ruled that the Bible could no longer be taught in schools and even that the Ten Commandments could not be displayed. Nativity scenes were not to be shown on public property anymore. The people of America had officially turned their backs on God. God was kicked out of the schoolhouse, the courthouse and eventually His influence was taken out of most Church houses in the land.

The Bible says in Psalms 9:17 “The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God”.   But it also says in Psalms 33:12 “Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD…”.

So, in conclusion I must say that it sure doesn’t look like America has any compunction toward returning to God; as a matter of fact, each passing day she goes further and further down into the pit. My only prayer and hope for America today is that the Lord will return soon. He will then turn His wrath against this old world. It will be called the Great Tribulation and Jesus Himself said in Matthew 24:21 “For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.”
