An interesting video appeared today on Amazing Facts, and I wanted to share it with everyone:
Hello, friends! Amazing Facts has just released a brief but very important analysis of a remarkable new video message from Pope Francis to a gathering of Christians in which he uses language that echoes striking biblical imagery. Could it be a fulfillment of prophecy? Click the link below to learn more ...
From Amazing Facts:
Pastor Doug shares, “The Bible predicts a false religious movement will arise in the last days to force the world to follow after unbiblical teachings, all cloaked in the forms of ‘united Christianity.’ It will present itself as the one true church, a religious power that was ‘mortally wounded,’ but whose ‘deadly wound was healed.’ The whole world will marvel and follow this beast power at the expense of Bible truth. Christians need to know their Bibles and draw as near to Jesus so they can to avoid this deception.”
Are we close to the end? If you follow the Bible, it seems closer than ever. Look at what the Bible has to say about evil in the last days:
But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come. For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good... (2 Timothy 3:1-3)Does the above Bible verse seem true in these days? I think so. I have noticed that people are becoming more hateful and self centered now than ever. Both online and offline. In fact, I wrote about it today in my journal:
ignoring parents, fighting, being hateful, unthankful, bitter and remorseful when “life does not go our way.” I have seen more of this in the last few years than I have ever witnessed before in my life. To be honest, the changes have been profound. Has social media been a cause? I think so. The internet? I think so. Culture. Most definitely. We see movies showing people living great lives and expect our lives to be full of the same riches. We expect too much. We get mad when we do not get our expectations. Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself. But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and raiment let us be therewith content. ( 1 Timothy 6:5-8)We are to be watching. Jesus told us to watch at signs for his return. Heaven is very close. If you are not devoting your life to Jesus, now is a good time to start. Many think that they are missing out on the things of the world by giving their life to Jesus... And they are right! You are missing out on the things of the world - pride, sin, gossip, arrogance, chasing after the wind, an empty life, boastfulness... Why would you want those things - things that are not of God - in your life?

I like the above website because it lacks the conspiracy that is present in many websites that talk about the end.
