Meanwhile, the prospects of a humanistic world peace grow ever brighter. Man seems on the verge of solving His problems without God. “Peace and safety” is the swelling cry. It is the greatest of delusions, the deceptive calm before the storm. Mankind is about to reap the full wrath of God for its rejection of His Son, who Himself is poised to return in vengeance. Surely the signs which herald the Second Coming are already casting their shadows to signal that our generation is living in the last of the last days.
When each of the events we have so far considered stands alone, its value as a “last-days sign” may not seem too impressive. But when we see the convergence of all these events within the same time frame the pieces of the puzzle begin to fit together.
For those who truly belong to Christ, though they mourn for the delusion and disaster they see coming upon the world, there is the joy and excitement of knowing that it cannot be long until they will hear that shout from Christ Himself calling them to meet Him in the air.
