At the Perry Stone conference I attended over the weekend, the discussion of Mt 24 and "Birth Pangs" arose. He said something I found very interesting in the wake (no pun intended) of the Tsunami in Japan.
He said that if the comparison is that of a woman giving birth, what's the one sign that means "it's time?" Labor pains come and go. False labor and the like. But, WHEN THE WATER BREAKS, she better get to the hospital, because its time.
Just a thought from Brother Stone.
