Matthew 24

It has been disastrous for Japan this past few days. Their country being hit by a massive 8.8 magnitude earthquake. When I heard about the news, I had goosebumps. I felt sad. I worry then I thought, we are nearing the end times. It's that simple. I told my husband we need to pray fervently for Japan, the nature's wrath victims, the children, the old people, people who are away from their families. We will all pray for them. He took his guitar and the songbook, he played, I sing. After an hour of praising and worshiping the Lord, we felt the presence of the Holy Spirit. We took the advantage and ask Him to show His loving mercy to the country.

It was also last week when the middle east were counting dead bodies because of their political turmoil. Oil prices are going up because of this middle east crisis. And the domino effect.

Part of me is excited. To those who are familiar with the Bible, we may think that this is end times. Just read this:

Matthew 24

 1And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple.
 2And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
 3And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?
 4And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
 5For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
 6And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
 7For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
 8All these are the beginning of sorrows.



So what we do is pray that Japan will get to know the true God. That they will be humble enough to ask the Lord to save them and acknowledge Him.

We will not be in this world long enough. Sooner or later, we will leave our so called earth. It is best to know where we are going...
