Take earthquakes for example: from 1986-96, there were "just" 15 earthquakes listed by U.S.G.S. of magnitude 7.0 or greater. But from 1997-07, there were 99 earthquakes with magnitude 7.0 or greater: that is more than a six-fold increase!
America's President, the winner of the Nobel Peace Prize before he even entered office, has not served a single day in which our troops were not engaged in combat somewhere in the world. He has threatened to attack Syria, regardless of the overwhelming opposition of Congress, and even before the U.N. has finished its investigation into al-Assad's use of lethal gas on civilians!
In addition, Pope Francis, the leader of over two billion Roman Catholics, has not only declared that atheists and agnostics can go to heaven, he has now cautioned his followers to "lighten-up" on the subjects of abortion, homosexuality, and contraception. The passage of Scripture that immediately comes to mind is Revelation 3:14-22!
I recently have become aware of a remarkably wise and talented young Bible teacher named Scottie Clarke (http://www.youtube.com/user/eternalrhythmflow). His videos on Bible Prophecy, not only provide a clearer understanding of Eschatology, but they show how God's creations on day four (Gen. 1:14) provide additional signs of the Lord's soon return. His teaching on the Blood Moon Tetrads, and the constellations of Leo, Virgo, and Ophiuchus, reveal much about the fulfillment of the last three Feasts of Israel (Trumpets, Atonement, and Tabernacles), greatly help in our understanding of Revelation Twelve!
"Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look upon the earth beneath: for the heavens shall vanish away like smoke, and the earth shall wax old like a garment, and they that dwell therein shall die in like manner: but my salvation shall be for ever, and my righteousness shall not be abolished" (Isa. 51:6).
