Future prophecy (Imminent) / Signs Appearing Now
Jesus disciples came to him and asked him that question after he told them that he would leave them and return. Jesus gives them signs to watch for leading to the end. I believe this to be the end of the age, which is now the current church age. Jesus goes on to tell his disciples that the day and hour is not known.
He is speaking of the rapture of the church. He gives an example (Matthew 24:40-41) of two men in the field, one taken one left, two women grinding, one taken and one left. He goes on to speak of his coming like a thief in the night (Matthew 24:42-44). This must be the rapture, we will not know when he is coming. It will be as the days of Noah, it will also be at the coming of the Son of Man. I also take this to mean that wickedness will abound, as well as the people will be living their lives as normal, not watching or listening to the signs around them.
The second coming of Christ is a different time. When he returns to earth, we all will know. There will be signs (Luke 21).

Does being a prepper show a lack of faith in God? Should good Christians reject prepping altogether? Yesterday, someone actually accused me of being “anti-faith” because I am encouraging people to prepare for the coming economic collapse. This person believes that if I had faith, then I would make “no provision” for what is ahead and simply trust “in God’s providence alone”. So is that person right? Is it really “anti-faith” to prepare for the coming economic collapse? I spent quite a bit of time thinking about these questions today.
Those that visit my site on a regular basis know that I am a Christian and I am very open about that fact. I am someone that places a very high value on faith. The Scriptures tell us to “trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding”. Without God, none of us has any hope. In fact, without God I would probably be dead by now.
But faith is not about sitting on your couch and waiting for God to do everything for you. Rather, faith is about taking action on what God has directed you to do.
Cone-shaped structure was apparently built on dry land some 6,000 years ago, resembles early European burial sites
A team of researchers from Tel Aviv University discovered an underwater monument in the Sea of Galilee that they believe may have been a Bronze Age burial site.
The cone-shaped structure is approximately 39 feet high and 230 feet across and weighs about 60,000 tons, according to a press release from the American Friends of Tel Aviv University. The researchers published documentation of their find in the March 2013 edition of the International Journal of Nautical Archaeology.

So this is what it’s come to. Test tube meat? Synthetic hamburger? Sounds delicious doesn’t it? Not! Have we gone so far over the edge that our next meal will come from a test tube? You know we are living in the end times when all living organisms are now engineered or manipulated in test tubes. Plants, animals, fuel, babies and now our meat! What’s next on the world agenda? Hmmm….sort of reminds me of a movie I once saw…”Soylent Green”! Does something sound fishy here or is it just me? The bible talks about genetic manipulation in the days of Noah with the Nephilim. He also says that the end times will be like that in the days of Noah! In Genesis 6:4 “There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.” And also after that, meaning the Nephilim would be around after the flood! I believe that the Nephilim are among us now and are playing a role in all of this genetic manipulation. What do you think?
A Dutch scientist hopes he’ll change minds about the viability of test tube meat when his first genetically engineered hamburger, made from billions of stem cells, is served hot off the grill.
Mark Post, the head of physiology at Maastricht University in the Netherlands, has spent years growing the synthetic hamburger from bovine stem cells, which his team turned into thin strips of muscle tissue before mincing them into a patty.
While the process has taken time and run up considerable expense – the project received $325,000 from an anonymous donor – Post told the New York Times he hoped the cost of cultured meat could come down in the future, making it a viable food source.
After conducting an informal tasting, Post gave the synthetic tissue his seal of approval, telling the Times, it “tastes reasonably good” and that he planned to add just salt and pepper before serving it, perhaps at an event in London this summer.
Post told ABC News in 2011 that he expected meat consumption to double in the next 40 years.
