The 'Big News'? Jesus Christ is coming back soon.
Each day brings new and mounting evidence, as the generation that saw the rebirth of Israel approaches 70.
Unfortunately, the bad news comes first:
- Weather and earth changes
- Ethnic strife
- Hot wars / Cold wars
- Financial upheaval
- Global rejection of Biblical truth
Doom & Gloom? "No," says Lindsey. "Not any more than a woman going into the labor of child birth." The pain is necessary to usher in the new life.
"Prophecy is knowledge of future events," Lindsey continues. "God has laid it all out in advance and called certain Christians to be 'Watchmen', meaning they are appointed by God to warn people of the coming judgment and to tell them the 'Good News' of the Gospel: Jesus Christ will save those who put their trust in Him. Even though the majority will not listen.
A Pew Research Center study released Tuesday found increasing signs of American secularism. Of those with no religious affiliation, 31% said they were atheists or agnostic. That translates into 56 million American adults who do not believe in God, up from only 19 million non-believers in 2007. (Even this is a sign of Jesus' soon return).
The majority of these atheists are millennials. Maybe the 'Bad News' is necessary to get them to listen to the Good News. And let's face it gang, without the Good News, we've got no exit strategy.
"But when I, the Son of Man, return, how many will I find who have faith?" --Luke 18:8A wise man once said: "Belief is a wise wager. Granted that faith cannot be proved, what harm will come to you if you gamble on its truth and it proves false? If you gain, you gain all; if you lose, you lose nothing. Wager, then, without hesitation, that He exists." --Blaise Pascal, mathematician
