The Signs of the End are Becoming More Pronounced by the Day! - By Daymond Duck - https://www.raptureready.com/2023/06/17/more-pronounced-by-the-day-by-daymond-duck/
In a June 6, 2023, article posted on Harbinger’s Daily, Tim Moore, Chief Executive Officer and Senior Evangelist of Christ in Prophecy, wrote, “Like so many other indicators, many of them [many of the Spiritual Signs] are becoming more pronounced by the day.”
Here is a link to Moore’s excellent article:
People would be wise to heed Moore’s words because the fulfillment of Bible prophecy is becoming more pronounced by the day.
I don’t think most people understand Bible prophecy, but I have read polls that said a growing number of people sense that something is wrong.
I have been approached several times in recent months by someone who said it is obvious that something is wrong in America and the world, and it causes me to believe we are getting close to the Second Coming of Jesus.
I could document a long list of signs here (the return of Israel, globalism, economic issues, immorality, etc.), but I will quickly mention just one spiritual issue that is on my mind, and then move on.
I believe world leaders are using global organizations (the United Nations, the World Health Organization, the World Economic Forum, etc.) to try to legislate Jehovah, Jesus, the Holy Bible, the Judeo-Christian Ethic, etc., out of existence.
They want to replace these things with a global ethic that suits them, but not God.
This is satanically inspired, it is becoming more obvious by the day, and it is an impossible task.
God will send seven years of tribulation disasters upon this earth to show that He will not tolerate government without Him and Jesus, and then He will restore this creation and establish the Millennial reign of Jesus on earth.
Here are some events that seem to indicate that we are getting close.
One, concerning corruption in the Dept. of Justice (DOJ): on June 8, 2023, it was announced that former Pres. Trump was indicted on seven criminal counts related to his mishandling of classified documents that were at his home in Mar-a-Lago, Fla.
Don’t forget that Biden had classified documents at three different locations, one of which is his home in Delaware, but nothing has been done about that.
I have said it before, and I will say it again: In my opinion, there is no limit to how far the Deep State will go to try to keep Trump from being re-elected and empowered to stop the surrender of America’s sovereignty to a corrupt one-world government.
It is a proven fact that:
(Note: A recent survey found that 63% (almost two-thirds) of America wants the FBI drastically overhauled or closed and rebuilt from scratch.)
(Note: An indictment does not mean Trump is guilty, but the Deep State, many Democrats, and a few RINOs have pre-determined his guilt. Some say, “No one is above the law,” but the Clintons and Bidens are above the law, or there is now more than one set of laws in the U.S.)
(More: On June 9, 2023, U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley told U.S. senators he has seen a document that the FBI has that says the owner of Burisma in Ukraine says he has 17 audio recordings of his conversations with Joe and Hunter Biden about Joe’s alleged bribery scheme in Ukraine. Grassley told the U.S. Senate, “These recordings were allegedly kept as a sort of insurance policy for the foreign national in case he got into a tight spot.” It seems to me that if the FBI could listen to taped recordings of the Bidens betraying the U.S. and nothing has been done, the FBI should be overhauled or closed and rebuilt from scratch. Why was Burisma paying Hunter $83,000 a month? Why has Joe Biden sent more than 100 billion dollars of taxpayer money to Ukraine? There is something rotten in the White House and the FBI.)
(More: On June 13, 2023, it was reported that Rudy Giuliani told the War Room audience that the former accountant at Burisma is willing to testify that she supervised the transfer of money to the Bidens, she has receipts to prove it, and that four of her colleagues are willing to testify that it happened.)
(More: On June 14, 2023, it was reported that the Deputy Director of the FBI would not tell the U.S. Senate whether audio recordings of conversations between the owner of Burisma and the Bidens exist or not. He sidestepped the question by saying he didn’t know.)
Two, also concerning corruption in the DOJ: on June 8, 2023, it was reported that the DOJ tried to get Trump’s valet driver to say that he helped Trump conceal classified documents at Mar-a-Largo.
Trump’s valet driver hired an attorney that had filed an application to be a superior court judge in Washington, D.C.
Prosecutors in the DOJ summoned the valet’s attorney to meet with them in Washington about an urgent matter that they were reluctant to discuss over the phone.
At the meeting, the chief prosecutor said he wanted the valet’s cooperation in going after Trump, and he brought up the fact that he knew that the valet’s attorney had applied to be a superior court judge in Washington, D.C.
According to the report and people familiar with the matter, the valet’s lawyer believes he was being offered a Judge’s position in Washington in exchange for getting the valet to testify against Trump.
(Note: Trying to bribe the attorney of a witness to get the witness to change his testimony doesn’t speak well for the DOJ, the FBI, and some of the judges that are now on the bench.)
(Note: This is the first time in history that the opponent of a sitting president has been impeached during a campaign.)
(My opinion: If the Deep State succeeds and gets away with criminalizing Trump, any candidate that opposes world government from now on could wind up being falsely accused and sent to jail. The power of corrupted individuals and institutions in Washington is now becoming so strong it could soon take the intervention of God to restore honest government. And, according to the Bible, it will happen.)
Three, concerning famine, reducing the population of the earth, etc.: on June 4, 2023, it was reported that the German Nutrition Society is recommending a more than 90% reduction in the consumption of meat.
They believe combating climate change for the good of society is more important than an individual’s health.
(Note: U.S. citizens may not be concerned about what goes on in Germany, but it is important to remember that Biden’s climate change czar wants America to be next.)
(FYI: Concerning climate change: on June 9, 2023, it was reported that thick smoke from wildfires in Canada had darkened the sky over the Northeastern U.S. and reduced the power production of solar-powered generators by 56%.)
Four, concerning an economic collapse in the U.S.: I am not qualified to give advice, but I have received several e-mails about what to do if there is a bank failure, or if banks are closed to switch to a Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC).
It is a big problem because your money could be in a closed bank, and the FDIC can only cover a small fraction of the deposits if there is a run on the banks.
In addition to that, if you try to withdraw $10,000 or more in cash in one day, the government can seize your money and keep it while it investigates you for suspicious activities such as drug dealing, money laundering, etc.
If you put your cash in a bank safety box, the bank can keep it or not let you have access to it.
On June 8, 2023, Dave Hodges addressed this issue on The Common Sense Show.
Here are some things individuals might want to consider:
Here is a link to Dave’s article.
(More: On June 12, 2023, it was reported that the U.S. federal deficit rose $1.165 trillion in the first 8 months of this fiscal year.)
Five, concerning world government and a system to track everyone on earth, my article last week said this:
On June 6, 2023, Leo Hohmann (highly respected author, speaker, writer, etc.), said:
>Some, me included, are calling it a forerunner to that ignominious marking spelled out in Revelation 13 as the mark of the beast. Why? Because it would track and limit the movement of people around the world as well as have the potential to, as we saw during Covid, restrict people from buying and selling unless they can show digital proof of having received a certain medical treatment. Never before in the history of the world has this taken place. It was unprecedented, and yet so few Christian leaders called it out for what it was.
>Just like the Nazi system before it, the one-world beast system is coming in under the guise of our “health” with regular “health” checks required in order to function in society. Those who don’t submit will be singled out as the enemies of the system and, therefore, a danger to humanity.
>This is only the “first building block” of a system that will eventually change the way everyone lives and functions on the earth. And this evil system is coming out of Europe, the revived Roman Empire spelled out in the book of Daniel.
Here is a link to Hohmann’s article:
(My opinion: No one can prevent the Word of God from being fulfilled, but the U.S. shouldn’t be supporting the rise of a Satanic World government that will impose its will upon the world and kill multitudes that become believers during the Tribulation Period. The U.S. should immediately withdraw from and stop supporting the UN, WHO, and WEF. It is past time for both parties in the House and Senate to act. But I don’t think they will, and all of this means the Rapture and Tribulation Period are very close.)
Six, concerning deceit at the end of the age: on June 13, 2023, it was reported that Mark Zuckerberg’s establishment people asked Facebook to censor things that turned out to be true, and Facebook did it.
As I see it: The establishment people and Facebook were the ones that were spreading misinformation (lies).
They prevented people from getting the truth, caused multitudes to have side effects, and killed many that might be alive if the truth had not been censored.
Seven, concerning false teaching, deceit, blasphemy, an antichrist spirit, rejection of the Bible, etc., at the end of the age: on June 13, 2023, it was reported that one of the top officials at the World Economic Forum (WEF), Yuval Noah Harari, said in a few years there might be religions that are actually correct because they will be using holy books that are written by Artificial Intelligence (AI).
This is a clear rejection of Christianity, Judaism, and the Bible.
Concerning AI writing holy books, read this verse carefully, “And he [the False Prophet] had power to give life to the image of the beast [a talking statue of the Antichrist; AI], that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed” (Rev. 13:15).
Is it possible that world leaders will allow a talking statue (AI) to write holy books for a new religion that will kill those that don’t worship the statue.
Eight, concerning the climate change scam: on June 13, 2023, it was reported that the world’s largest meat company, Bio Tech Foods, will build a factory in Spain to produce 1,000 metric tons of artificial beef per year.
Start-up is scheduled for the middle of 2024; the company already sells real meat in the U.S., and some of its “fake meat” could be sold in the U.S. soon.
Finally, are you Rapture Ready?
If you want to be rapture ready and go to heaven, you must be born again (John 3:3). God loves you, and if you have not done so, sincerely admit that you are a sinner; believe that Jesus is the virgin-born, sinless Son of God who died for the sins of the world, was buried, and raised from the dead; ask Him to forgive your sins, cleanse you, come into your heart and be your Saviour; then tell someone that you have done this.
This Power Grab – Terry James - https://terryjamesprophecyline.com/2023/06/18/this-power-grab/
Do you trust anything coming from government mouthpieces these days? I must say that I don’t. Every level of federal officialdom is observably steeped in Luciferian prevarication, so far as I am concerned.
There is simply nothing biblical about this grab for power and control by a government inebriated on the dollars it can print and spend almost by presidential fiat. If it truly were a biblically correct—rather than politically correct—effort, I would have no problem with it.
Now to look more deeply into the reason Christians shouldn’t support this or any such grab for control that ultimately will enslave.
Human governance, we must remember, is not God’s Idea. It is man’s idea—to do things apart from the Creator. We see this from history given in the Bible.
Adam’s first decision to disobey God and instead accept Lucifer’s way was rebellion against God’s governance, and it came to a crisis point when the whole world became filled with violence and was corrupted in every other way, producing total anarchy. The Flood provided a new beginning.
Then came the crisis on the plain of Shinar with Nimrod and the Tower of Babel. Again, God dealt with the crisis, and the whole human government was destroyed and the people scattered. Peleg and the peoples of earth were geographically redistributed, and all of the rest…
Israel was the next example. The chosen of God—the Jewish people—wanted human government, not God’s reign, over them. The Lord let them have Saul. He did that because He is a God who gave mankind volition. He wants His creation to love Him unconditionally; He doesn’t want robots engineered to adore Him.
Lying, humanistic government is again building to a supreme crisis point. It has always built to crises points. Every civilization, empire, etc., has come apart, dissolved, or been destroyed because of rebellion and determination to live apart from God.
This time, it is building like the Vesuvius of all rebellions. America is the apex nation of all nations, and is the head of this gargantuan boil that is filling with explosive corruption that will one day blow. All nations of the world have, through their link to the dollar, been tied inextricably to the US—the most materially blessed of all nations to have come to power upon the planet. Now America is the holdup to the New World Order the globalist minions want to create. They are doing all within their power, through the World Economic Forum and other one-world organizations, to destroy America as founded. Those within the American government at the highest levels are in cahoots with their New World Order cabalists, doing all they can to change America from its founding in order to turn it over to the likes of the World Economic Forum and other anti-God forces.
All of this corruption constitutes the Babylonian system, which Daniel and John prophesied in presenting the strange beast that comes up out of the sea in Revelation 1 and lumbers about in Daniel 7.
America is bound to Israel in a supernatural way, and it is all tied together by the incessant call for peace—not God’s peace, but humanistic peace. The result is going to be exactly as God gives it in Psalm 2, then the “kings of the earth” will achieve the “peace” they desire, as given in Isaiah 28:15 and 18.
Man will get his humanistic government; the ultimately “evolved” man will be earth’s master for a brief time, God letting man have his desire to do what is right in his own eyes.
This current bubble of humanistic effort to build utopia, which supposedly can be achieved through a drive for humanistic socialism (that’s the only kind of socialism there is), will explode when the Rapture occurs and the top is knocked off the boil. Only God’s staying hand has kept things from imploding—economic collapse, etc.
So, I am against man-made efforts in wanting to micromanage our lives. Such efforts comprise the grist for tyranny. You see where it’s going. It is nothing more or less than a luciferian grab for power—a voracious lust for control by his human agents and agencies.
God gave man, through the Bible, the formula for living life the way He intended. His Word says in effect that we should “let those who won’t work, not eat” (see 2 Thessalonians 3:10, 12). He gave us the way to take care of the widows, orphans, and the infirm—even the legitimately indigent. This is to be done through the largesse of God’s people, those who fully accept His way of governance. The Lord Jesus Christ is that only way. Man long ago decided to dispense with God’s prescription in dealing with matters of societal interaction. Burdensome, enslaving, lying government seeks power through promising deliverance from social ills it can never produce. What it will produce, however, we can see in Bible prophecy’s description of humanistic government’s final attempt to usurp the throne of God. (Read Revelation 13:16–18.)

Truth and Intolerance - By Hal Lindsey - https://www.hallindsey.com/ww-6-18-2023/
In 2016, the US Civil Rights Commission issued a major report on religious freedom and non-discrimination. Martin Castro, then chairman of the Commission, added his thoughts. “The phrases ‘religious liberty’ and ‘religious freedom,’” he wrote, “will stand for nothing except hypocrisy so long as they remain code words for discrimination, intolerance, racism, sexism, homophobia, Islamophobia, Christian supremacy or any form of intolerance.”
That was seven years ago, but since then the report and Mr. Castro’s statement have become increasingly relevant. The idea that when Christian Americans say nice things, they are in fact speaking code for evil things, creates deep distrust and destroys civil discourse.
Mr. Castro assigned his own meaning to the words “religious liberty.” For instance, he called it code for “Islamophobia.” The opposite is true. Religious liberty means that every individual is free to embrace Islam, Christianity, or none of the above if they choose.
However, the freedom to choose does not mean that all choices are equal. Castro called “Christian supremacy… a form of intolerance.” I have never heard a Christian use the term “Christian supremacy.” That phrase seems to have been chosen because it evokes the idea of white supremacy — something that is antithetical to the Bible.
We do not choose our race, but we do choose our ideas. Islam and Christianity represent competing ideas and beliefs. The Bible and the Koran contradict one another in major ways, so they cannot both be true. “Religious freedom” allows each side to present its case, to which people are free to listen or not. One way or another, they come to a wide variety of conclusions.
We Christians must recognize that every human being is made in the image of God and that Christ died for each one. We love and respect individuals because of the One whose image they bear. They will make different choices about God, and we respect that, too. But the fact that we respect the God-given faculty of individual choice does not make all choices equal.
Does “Christian supremacy” mean that Christians see our beliefs as superior to other sets of beliefs? If it’s just that, then what’s the big deal? Everyone believes in the superiority of their own beliefs. They might be atheists, they might believe that God is unknowable, or they might believe in a pantheon of gods. But whatever they believe, they believe they are right.
If you are a Christian, walk humbly before God and man, but don’t be ashamed of being right. And don’t buy in to the silly idea that one belief is as good as another. The truth matters. Unlike any other religious text in the world, the Bible proves itself in thousands of ways.
It is not intolerant to say that two plus two equals four, and not five. It’s the truth. You have a right to believe that the answer is five, but that idea is inferior to the truth, and it will harm you in many ways. The danger is that children will come to see confidence in one’s faith as intolerance. It is not. We can coexist and we can respect others without affirming lies or deprecating truth.
Debased Minds & Suppression Of Truth: Romans One Is Being Manifested In Nearly Every Community – By Dean Dwyer - https://harbingersdaily.com/debased-minds-suppression-of-truth-romans-one-is-being-manifested-in-nearly-every-community/
God’s wrath is not a subject that is on the lips of many people today, even in the church. Unfortunately, as the church has stopped preaching it, the unrepentant have stopped fearing it. Consequently, the majority of people are completely ignorant of it. Yet, God’s wrath is clearly brought into view in Romans 1:18-19: “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them.”
Our generation is not the only generation to suppress the truth of God and His Word. Since the Garden of Eden, people have been unrighteous and have refused to see the truth of God both in His Word and in the world He created. As Romans 1:20 proclaims: For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse.
You see, mankind’s problem is not that truth is unknowable, but that it chooses to suppress the truth by opposing the will of God. For instance, most people are able to look in a mirror and see the truth of Genesis 1:27: “So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” Because of the willful blindness of mankind, the resulting consequences are very serious:-
· People’s knowledge of God becomes clouded;
· Their thinking becomes darkened;
· They lose touch with reality; and
· They miss the purpose of mankind’s existence.
Many wrongly assume that because fire and brimstone is not falling from the sky, God must not be angry. However, beginning in verse 24 of Romans 1, we get a picture of how God’s wrath is currently being manifested throughout the world today. When you read Romans 1 and then pick up a newspaper, turn on a television, open a social media page or even walk around your city, you will clearly see that everything written in Romans 1 is being manifested in nearly every community. Romans 1:28 is very telling: “And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting.”
The word debased is the Greek word adokimos. This word means that the object is unfit for a particular purpose. So, in the context of the passage, because God is referring to a debased mind, we see that it is the mind of those who are under the wrath of God that becomes unfit for purpose. Adokimos was commonly used of metals that were rejected by refiners because of impurities. The impure metals were discarded and adokimos therefore came to include the ideas of worthlessness and uselessness. Therefore, anybody who rejects God and therefore comes under the wrath of God has a mind which becomes spiritually depraved, worthless and useless.
The word adokimos was also used to describe a cowardly soldier who failed the test in the hour of battle. It also described a candidate for office who the citizens regarded as useless. It is also said that if a stone was rejected by builders because of a flaw which made it unfit for construction, the rejected stone was marked with a capital “A” (for adokimos) on its surface. If true, how interesting that is in light of Peter’s statement to the Sanhedrin about Jesus in Acts 4:11: “This is the ‘stone which was rejected by you builders, which has become the chief cornerstone.’ Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”
Any building contractor will tell you that useless materials invite disaster. If the foundation of my home was built with flawed stone which should have been rejected, I will bear the responsibility of my home crumbling before my eyes. So, because nations the world over have rejected “the chief cornerstone” (Jesus) and instead elected those with a debased mind to local councils, school boards, state and federal governments, we have exchanged a solid foundation for a worthless foundation. And so, the result that we are witnessing today is that society is crumbling because the foundations are useless.
Because mankind worships the creature, not the Creator, it continues to place its trust in the systems and the philosophies of mankind, all the while rejecting God. This will reach its climax in the Tribulation Period as people worship and place their trust in the Antichrist. But for now, those who have a giant “A” (for adokimos) stamped on their mind and on their heart are, according to the definition, an untrustworthy guide for moral choices. Yet, they are directing domestic and foreign policy and we are all paying the price for their immoral, untrustworthy and unwise decisions.
The latest example of politicians acting from a debased mind comes from Queensland, Australia. Like most nations, Australia is also in the grips of “the gender agenda”. Sadly, there are very few (even in the church) who stand opposed to it. The latest laws enacted by Queensland Parliament allow people to change their sex on their birth certificate without undergoing sexual reassignment surgery. The laws will also allow children aged 12 to 16 to apply to the courts to change the sex on their birth certificate when they do not have the support of their parents. As an apparent safeguard, the child must first undertake an assessment by a developmentally informed practitioner who has an established professional relationship with them prior to any change. However, as the Scriptures plainly say in the context of spiritual blindness, when the blind lead the blind, both will fall into a pit.
Despite the fact people commonly believe the gender agenda is unique to our times, Emperor Nero infamously performed what is perhaps one of the earliest sex reassignment surgeries. After he allegedly kicked his second wife Sabina to death in 65AD, he met a slave boy named Sporus who looked like her. So, Nero, a self-proclaimed demigod, had the boy castrated and married him as a replacement for his lost love. It is claimed that he also frequently referred to Sporus as “Sabina”. To maintain the façade, Nero had the boy shrouded in a woman’s stola and veils and announced to the world that his lover was now a woman. Some claim that this action was intended to demonstrate a symbolic defeat over a rival. Before her death, Sabina had convinced Nero that she was in fact illegitimately descended from Tiberius, a former emperor, therefore giving her a strong imperial claim. If Sporus bore such a strong resemblance to the dead empress, it might signify that they were genetically related, thereby giving Sporus a claim to imperial rule. In such a case, castration would have been a simple way for Nero to neutralize his potential competitor. After all, a sexually humiliated boy treated like a woman at the foot of the emperor would never be taken seriously as a rival to the throne.
It would appear the same is true today. As mankind is made in the image of God, Satan believes he has won a symbolic victory over God by encouraging the defacement of that image. Therefore, being defaced, mankind would not feel worthy enough to get anywhere near the throne of God where healing grace and forgiveness could be sought. Furthermore, as church-age believers are promised a future where we rule and reign with Christ, Satan wants to blind mankind to the fact that during the Millennial Kingdom, we will reign while he is bound to a chain.
How sad that the father of lies has convinced mankind to favour man’s DEI (diversity, equity and inclusion) over the Imago Dei – the image of God.
Daily Jot: Faith vs Giants - Bill Wilson – www.dailyjot.com
There are a lot of giants in this world. The government. The media. Companies that put political agendas ahead of their customers. The love of money is a huge giant. All these giants seek to control their areas. They limit our freedom by censoring what we say; directing what we do; what we wear; where we go and what we buy. Yes, we believe we make the final decision, but what drives our decisions? How are they influenced? Are our decisions based on what the giants in our lives want us to do? Or are our decisions based on our faith in God the Father? God gave us freedom of choice. He delights in our freedom, but is the control of the giants more powerful than our faith and God’s gift of freedom?
By a miraculous act of God, Moses led the Israelites out of Egyptian slavery. These people witnessed first-hand the outstretched arm of God deliver them from the pursuit of the Egyptians through the parting sea. They saw when they needed food and water how God provided for them. Yet they whined and complained and wanted to go back to Egypt where they were slaves. Notwithstanding, Moses led them on. In Numbers 13:2, the Lord came to Moses and told him to send spies into the land of Canaan, “which I give unto the children of Israel.” The spies saw that the land was good, the fruit of the land, they said, “flowed with milk and honey.” But there was a big problem reported by the spies—giants.
As Numbers 13:32-33 says, the spies “brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel…and there we saw giants…and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers…” This report set the Israelites on edge and they started questioning God’s intent of delivering them from Egypt. They murmured against Moses and they said, “were it not better for us to return to Egypt?” Two of the spies, Joshua and Caleb, however, remembered God’s promise and had faith where the others didn’t. In Numbers 14:9, they exhorted, “Do not rebel against the Lord, neither fear the people of the land; for they are bread for us: their defense is departed from them, and the Lord is with us. Do not fear them.” The Israelites would rather be slaves in Egpyt than rely on their faith that God would deliver them from the giants.
It was this lack of faith that caused God to make the Israelites wander 40 more years before entering the promised land. All because of some little giants. They felt they were small because they had forgotten their identity as Gods chosen people. Their sin was not just that they doubted God’s ability to conquer the giants, but they forgot who they were in the Lord. They were seeing with eyes of flesh, not by the Spirit. Galatians 5:16 commands, “Walk by the Spirit and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.” As is written in Hebrews 11:1, ”Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen.” When we are faced with giants in this world, let us remember Christ’s words in Mark 9:23, “all things are possible to him that believes.” Don’t let the giants of this world enslave you because of a lack of faith in God.
Daily Devotion: What We All Have in Common - by Greg Laurie – www.harvest.org
Against its will, all creation was subjected to God’s curse. But with eager hope, the creation looks forward to the day when it will join God’s children in glorious freedom from death and decay. —Romans 8:20–21

Some people dedicate their lives to acquiring possessions. Others dedicate their lives to getting the finest education available. And still others dedicate their lives to romantic relationships.
But ultimately they will discover that if they forget about God in their pursuits, it will result in something called emptiness. Take it from an expert, Solomon, who wrote the Book of Ecclesiastes.
Solomon knew about these things firsthand. He went on a quest, almost treating it as a research project. He decided to try everything the world had to offer. He wouldn’t merely read about it or take someone else’s word for it. He would experience it personally. He was on a search for truth.
Really, all of humanity is on a quest as well. We’re searching for that something more in life. When God created us, He wired us that way.
The Bible says that God “has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end” (Ecclesiastes 3:11 NLT).
This simply means there is something in the heart of every person, uniquely created in the image of God, that knows something more is out there.
Romans 8:20 tells us, “Against its will, all creation was subjected to God’s curse” (NLT). Or, as the New King James Version puts it, “The creation was subjected to futility.”
Benjamin Disraeli, a nineteenth-century British prime minister, concluded, “Youth is a blunder; manhood a struggle; old age a regret.” There is something in us that this earth can never satisfy. That is why there are so many miserable successful people.
As Solomon so wisely observed, just as death and destruction are never satisfied, human desire is never satisfied. We are designed to know God and live above the mundane existence that we call life. The answer to all our questions is found in a relationship with God.

From this point on, we believers have to get serious. We are going to face discouragement, disillusionment and, most certainly, persecution in the time between now and the Rapture. But don't be discouraged or disillusioned. The coming turmoil will provide us unrivaled opportunities to share the good news of the Gospel. So be ready to share your faith and your hope with those who need Christ. We still have time to reap a great harvest of souls for God's kingdom!" - Hal Lindsey

Our Prayer for You- "Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness. You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God. This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of God's people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God. Because of the service by which you have proved yourselves, men will praise God for the obedience that accompanies your confession of the gospel of Christ, and for your generosity in sharing with them and with everyone else." 2 Corinthians 9:10-13
