Hello, John and Doves,
Let me share what I think is "imminent," by
the LORD's standard.
The Holy Spirit has impressed upon me that
the killing of the four Americans aboard
the Quest, which murder was
carried out by Somali pirates, is the sort of thing that
starts World Wars.
It is usually a minor occurrence--as
measured against the wide world of human affairs--
that raises the ire of a nation offended
[in this case, the United States of America].
The unprovoked murder of innocents [in this
case, Christian brothers and sisters]
is often the flash that kindles the
powder keg of a World War [or perhaps the Psalm 83 war].
It remains to be seen whether our fearless
leader has the c-j-n-s to recognize that war
has been declared against the United States
of America by this unprovoked act of aggression.
In the midst of all things happening in the
world, including the most recent 6.3 quake in
Christchurch, the LORD spoke these words to
my spirit: "Be Ready!!"

Janet re: Noah the flood and the rapture"
You said " Many people see the Flood and Noah's
escape as a parallel phenomenon to the Rapture....."
Actually, I have always heard and been taught, that Noah and the Flood
are a picture of Israel going through the Tribulation, which the Lord
delivers them from at the end. And Enoch, which is taken to heaven
prior to the flood is a picture of the Church escaping the Tribulation
via the Rapture. Which is correct, time will tell. This is just another
thought on the subject. I tend to agree with Israel as Noah and Enoch
as the Church. Well, if Dr. Owour is correct and the rapture is indeed
imminent then who cares. Also, for the second time this week I heard
the term imminent used concerning the rapture. Dr. Owour, and then
Pastor Chuck Smith said so this week on Pastor's Perspective. Chuck
tends to be more guarded these days in using those types of terms, so I
was surprised to hear him say so. After all, imminent means, well
