What form do you think it will take? I mean, do you expect to see angels in the sky breaking seals and blowing trumpets and pouring bowls?
I myself will be seeing this from a different perspective than a lot of
others. I am positive I will be Raptured before any of this takes place.
The ones left on earth after the Rapture won't actually see Angels as
such. It is mostly symbolic to the people on earth. These will be things
ushered in by God himself. The terrible things described in these
symbolic events WILL happen though in full force for all to see and
I believe your are quite right about a war happening and very soon.
In the end times, it states in Revelation that there will be wars and rumors
of war. What do we see happening before our very eyes at the moment?
Wars and rumors of war. Lots of them. Our daily life is saturated with
news of ongoing wars and threats of more wars and never ending talk
about it. That part of the end times is actually happening now.
Before anything really bizarre happens on the earth though, a seven year
peace treaty will be signed with Israel. This is the start of the Tribulation
period of seven years. The antichrist will sign this treaty or negotiate it
at least. Not too many people will realize that it is actually the antichrist
doing so, but a lot of people will know at that time that the antichrist is
fully on the scene. Who that is, no one knows today. But I believe he is
here now, has his plans started and will show himself fully at the second
half of the tribulation.
I am not trying to force my views and beliefs on anyone here. It is my
belief according to what I have learned from the Bible and have been
taught most of my life. God has given us something called free will.
We can believe in the Lord or not. It's where a person ends up for an
eternity that matters. I am anxiously awaiting for the endtimes to come.
I am prepared for my eternity with Jesus. And hey, it this IS some type
of fairy tale and NOTHING is true, (I believe it is though), then I will have
at least tried to live a peaceful life having followed the Ten Commandments
and the words of the Bible. I can't be tortured for believing it. I am a sinner
like every person on this planet, but I try to live a life following Jesus.
I stray off the path really bad at times, but I have a talk with God and
ask forgiveness of my sins and try not to repeat. That's my life.
