A year later and we find that so true Susan. I just heard on tv how a man and woman renewed their wedding vows while secretly keeping their 13 children in chains and starving within their homes. One escaped and called the police. This is just one horrible story we hear way too often. Oh how the world needs Jesus.

The world will always be trending worse until the return of Christ.
During that time we will have good times and bad times, a period of falling away from God, and returning to Him.
God has placed us where we are throughout the range of history for a very good reason. Our assignment is to live FOR Him throughout all these upswings and downswings, no matter what.




Life.
It's Worth Living.
It's Worth Giving.
Choose Life.


And we all lived happily ever after...
~Susan...ski

During every century, people have always seen the times as getting worse. Yet doesn't it take two steps backwards to move forward? I think that how we see the world depends where you live, how you live, at which social standing are you, if you are a negative person,
if you follow the bible, if you understand geology, if you understand that man if failing taking care of this planet. socially we have come a long way, but have a long way to go. All in all I think the world is getting better & getting worse at the same time. Why dwell on what we can't change? we can only do what God has us to do, and pray that the worst doesn't happen in our life time. I don't think believers will be free of the pain. We can't imagine how this climate is affected by our neglect & abuse! I would rather believe the sun will come out tomorrow & hope for the best! Let's just hope God helps us with the election & it's direction.

Heyas! Jesus told us "And if the Lord had not cut short those days, no one would be saved. But because of the elect, whom he chose, he has cut them short". (Mark13) We also know there are wars, rumors of wars, famines, etc., yet "the end is not yet" Jesus told us. Notice Mark records it as being in the past tense.

There is at least one absolutely true historical interpretation of this whole passage, and it has already been fulfilled within the generation Jesus spoke to by the destruction of Jerusalem and slaughter/persecution around that and following. Many folks make light of this, and such is tragic and spiritually dangerous.

Just as with many prophecies, there are second and third meanings at times. We know that the Son Yahweh promised King David would build the Temple of God is most truly Jesus who sits on the "Throne of David" forever, and the primary promise is not Solomon's Temple. In fact, the Kingdom was taken away from David's physical offspring, so that is why we know that it is the New Jerusalem, The Bride of Christ, who is the Temple Jesus built. We are the living stones built into a spiritual house for offering sacrifices (See Peter's words).

We know that God told Ahaz (who refused to ask for a sign from God) through Isaiah: "Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, a virgin will be with child and bear a son, and she will call His name Immanuel." And that actually did occur in history, "virgin" being the the almah who was Isaiah's wife... but primarily we know it is Jesus being born of the truly virginal Mary. So may we not be too dogmatic about our interpretations as some do on the extreme lift and extreme right of the narrow path we walk in faith of our great God and Savior.

I know for a fact we hear of things faster than ever before, almost before it happens it can seem. hahaha I also know that some scientists have proven the speed of light has changed over time, so the physics around Life have shortened in our perspective. We also know that since the Flood, human lifespans were shortened. We also know that the days of potential evil in all of Creation is shortened, since the finished work of Jesus on the Cross and rising from the dead to ascend into heaven until he comes back for his own one fine day.

Sometimes we want to understand things only as we've heard them traditionally taught, yet we forget God Almighty made it plain that even the Jews were condemned for not paying attention to what God actually meant in Scripture due to the traditional interpretations and practices of their Jewish Elders. We must use extreme caution, in my humble opinion, to say "Thus saith the Lord"... when in actuality The Lord did not actually saith thus.

He died. He rose from the dead. He is coming back.

I do not believe things are improving, but I also know that humans are spiritually dead and thus are only associated with evil since the Fall. We are no more depraved now than we ever were since we were kicked out of Eden, in my literal understanding of Scriptures both Old and New (and the belief of many Christians since the 1st Century A.D.). I do know that it is hard to hide behind the idea of how evil human nature is, since the advent of instant communication.

Peace of Christ to you sister, and all who read this thread.


I'm not even near perfect, but I know someone who is.

I really don't know what to say a about the monster drinks? I would like to know which ones was talked about to verify the info mentioned about it being secretly evil. What I know is how bad it is. that the amount of sugar in it sets you up with being a diabetic, and starting many illnesses. Also the amount of nitrogen used can make you go into an asthma attack. If is your medical problem. So are they evil unsure, but medical they are very bad. So they sure help you to meet the Devil faster.

.Have you heard about the monster energy drinks? If so, tell me your opinions. Let me update those who may have not heard. The three strange drawing on the monster energy drinks when compared to the Hebrew alphabet stand for 6 6 6. (mark of the beast in Revelation) In the word "monster" there is a cross. When one drinks it, the cross becomes upside down. (Satanic). The lady who had studied all of this said that the company who made this is BFC. She found out that the "F: stood for the 4 letter bad word that you have heard people say in passing. emoticon I got interrupted from hearing what she said about the company name printed on the carton. Maybe someone else can tell me what it said.
If all of this is true, it makes me shudder to think the hidden evil in things around us.

I started to do a Bible Study on the return of Jesus, but no one seems to have the time to participate so I changed the title. I will continue my personal study on this topic for it is exciting and needful. However, from time to time you might want to mention things that prove your opinion as if the world is improving or getting worse as the time for Jesus to return.
It saddens me to say, I think things are getting worse and will continue to do so until Jesus comes again..

IS THE WORLD GETTING BETTER OR WORSE?
Wow, this is really an answer about perspective. I guess it depends on what you see, know, read, and where you live.
As far as what I our senses, this is a hard answer! I think in the seconds before the death of those in Japan, when Hiroshima bomb was dropped that would definitely be worse. Conquers wiped out whole civilizations.Or every war in any country during different times. Even famine does the same thing. Or what about the Plague! If you talk to anyone they will tell you we have a better life than our ancestors. Yet if you are still living in strive and squalor, life seems worse because you are in the pain right now.
Our society, and others are moving faster than ever before. We are using up our resources more, and our population is tripling. We as humans are causing ozone /global warming: flooding in areas, disappearance of certain species, fungus & viral growth, disappearance of water, irradiate weather that kills it's inhabitants. On every level things are getting worse because we haven't learned from history. Or from our greatest history book called the Bible.
Some terrorist groups don't seem to understand that violence only brings violence, and destruction. That it is only thru respect, and love, and practicing the Word of God that will reunite humans, and help this planet. So yes, you don't have to read the bible to knw that things are getting personally worse. Now our enemies react more so emotionally, and have access to the bomb. But when the latest type bomb is released till will be too late for this planet. I will be ready for what ever happens here because I have chosen to listen to the great architect, our savior, Jesus/Christ.
If you haven't come to Jesus yet say these words,(it's never too late):
Jesus I come to you to repent of my sins.
I except that you are my Lord. In Jesus name Amen!
