"The world has been warned!"

Dear friends:
Your head has to be buried in the sand or you have to be brain dead for you not to see that what the Bible calls “the end of the age” is near.
Notice I did not say “the end of the world.”  That is where the recent Harold Camping May 21st publicity got it wrong.  The world will exist for at least another 1,000 years, according to the Bible, following certain events at the end of this present age.
We are near those “certain events.”  We are near the end of this present age, or what Jesus called “the age of the Gentiles” (Luke 21:24, NLT).  In speaking of the future scattering and persecution of the Jews, Jesus accurately predicted, “They will be brutally killed by the sword or sent away as captives to all the nations of the world. And Jerusalem will be conquered and trampled down by the Gentiles until the age of the Gentiles comes to an end.” 

Just as He said, Jerusalem was, in fact, conquered in AD 70, some 37 years later, and was trampled down by Gentiles until the miraculous 1967 Six-Day War when it came into Jewish hands for the first time in more than 1,900 years.  This means the age or times of the Gentiles is over, or near over.
The signs are clear, but because God is so merciful, He has given the world ample warning.  No one should be surprised as these events come down.
His warnings have been in the hundreds of thousands, probably millions.  Let me describe some of these warnings:

1.  The warnings have been contained in thousands of Christian radio and satellite TV broadcasts all over the world.

2.  They have been all over the Internet.  An example is a recent article by the editor and publisher, Joseph Farah, of the prestigious news site, WorldNetDaily titled “Maybe Doomsday is Near,” at http://www.wnd.com/index.php/index.php?pageId=304105.  Farah describes the # 1 major sign.  Of Christ’s return, he says, “I don't know exactly what date He will be coming back… But I do know it's near.”  Check it out.  Farah is a very knowledgeable and perceptive writer.

3.  They have been proclaimed by thousands of preachers all over the world, although sadly some preachers are in the dark as much as their uninformed flock.

4.  There have been many individual efforts.  An example is that of a businessman friend who for several years, with his own money, has proclaimed the message with an expensive ¼-page ad in newspapers in every city of America, including many times in USA Today.  A Web version of the ad is at http://www.christssoonreturn.com.

Why is God warning?  Because He loves you and does not want you to be caught by surprise.
What does God want from you?  He wants you to simply believe in Him, and trust in Him.  He loves you, and wants you to know Him.  He wants a loving relationship with you.  He wants to spare you from the evil coming upon the world.
Believe on Him, and trust Him with your life – today!
