Over the last few weeks I have been going through and updating all my 25 world trends articles on my website and it still looks to me that present indications are that Jesus will return 2030-2040 AD. I know that late date does not please the 2012-2019 second coming of Jesus crowd but they simply are wrong, so that is their problem. To find out why they are wrong you will have to read these 25 articles or read my previous blog on why Jesus is not coming between 2012-2019.
Now some of you need to quit whining about how long that is and do something for the Lord with the little time that you have left, because if you really think about it, there is not much time left to work. If you go with the middle date, say 2035, and subtract seven years that is left for the Jews you are at 2028 AD. Also, the Rapture is likely to be at least a few years before then (I think 3 1/2 to 7 years). Therefore, the rapture might happen before or around 2020-2025 AD. So that leaves true Christians only about 10 or 20 more years to get their mission on earth accomplished.
You might also consider that during the time that we have left to work it is going to become increasing difficult to work and that many in the institutional churches will be falling away into Apostasy. We already see that taking place. There is also likely to be the beginning of sorrows or false birth pains within this period before the Rapture. Possibly even the first five seals of Revelation will take place during this time. I think that will play out as a world war against those forcing fundamental Islam on the world followed by persecution of fundamental Christians as well.
I also think the United States will cease to be a superpower during the next decade. So all those that are anxious for the tribulation to get started will have plenty of tribulation right here at home in the United States. Tribulation has already started for some and its going to get much worse.
All the events on the earth that will take place in the next 10 to 20 years will just set the stage for the rise of the Beast/Antichrist. Many pieces are still not in place for the Beast but you will have to read the articles to see why Bible prophecy cannot all be fulfilled as soon as some are now saying. Some are even saying that we are already in the final seven years. That concept must mostly be wishful thinking of those that are armed to the teeth to fight the new world order because it certainly cannot come from any rational interpretation of Bible prophecy.
