Most traditions believe that there is life after death. Christians believe that there is another home called heaven that Christ went to prepare for them and upon finish, he will come for the prepared. This is when he will come a second time to take the righteous with him. When he comes the second time, the whole world will be represented by two classes of people. Both righteous and unrighteous, the just and unjust. Before he returns, some signs and wonders were foreseen by the great prophets.
Before Christ appears in the clouds of heaven, everything will be convulsed that is seen in nature. The lights from heaven together with fire from the earth will make the mountains to burn like a furnace and there will also be floods of lave in the villages and cities. Molten masses of rock will make the waters in the seas to boil. Earthquakes will be experienced as well as the great destruction of human life. But just like the days of Noah that some people were preserved in the ark that God had prepared for them so in the days of calamity and destruction, He will be a hiding place for the believing ones.
Needless to say, because you already know, we are evidently living in the end times. The coming of Christ is near at hand. The days are solemn and very crucial. The problem is that the spirit of God is slowly and surely being withdrawn from the earth. To the despisers of the word of God, the plagues and judgments are already falling on them and grace is being withdrawn from them.
The agencies of wicked are joining their forces and are combining. They want to strengthen themselves for the last great crisis. There are very great changes that you are yet to see taking place in the world and the last moments will even be rapid.
The conditions you see happening in the world signifies that troublous times are right at hand. If you read the daily newspapers, they are filled with the terrible indications conflict in the coming near days. You read of bold robberies every day. Strikes are these days very common. There are thefts and robberies now and then. Men are ruthlessly taking the lives of other men, women and even little children. Men have become infatuated with wickedness and the evils things are seen prevailing more than the good things.
The devil has succeeded in filling the hearts of people with evil desires for having selfish gains. You will come across the vulnerable in the streets without foods, shelter, and clothing and in the same cities still, there are some of them who have more than what their hearts desires, they live luxurious lives, and spends their wealth on richly furnished homes. To add more to their luxurious lives, they have personal adornment, gratifying their sensual appetites, upon alcohol, tobacco as well as other things that are said of damaging the powers of the brain and unbalancing of the mind as well as debasing the soul.
