Many scriptures are quoted to talk about the end times, however there is one that is consistantly missed.
1 Thessalonians 5:1-3
I will post it from different bibles so you can get the full scope of it.
English Standard Version Bible
"1Now concerning the times and the seasons, brothers, you have no need to have anything written to you. 2For you yourselves are fully aware that the
day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. 3While people are saying, "There is peace and security," then sudden destruction will come upon
them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape."
"1BUT AS to the suitable times and the precise seasons and dates, brethren, you have no necessity for anything being written to you.
2For you yourselves know perfectly well that the day of the [return of the] Lord will come [as unexpectedly and suddenly] as a thief in the
3When people are saying, All is well and secure, and, There is peace and safety, then in a moment unforeseen destruction (ruin and death) will
come upon them as suddenly as labor pains come upon a woman with child; and they shall by no means escape, for there will be no escape."
The Message Bible
"I don't think, friends, that I need to deal with the question of when all this is going to happen. You know as well as I that the day of the
Master's coming can't be posted on our calendars. He won't call ahead and make an appointment any more than a burglar would. About the time
everybody's walking around complacently, congratulating each other—"We've sure got it made! Now we can take it easy!"—suddenly everything will
fall apart. It's going to come as suddenly and inescapably as birth pangs to a pregnant woman."
What does this mean. Well to me it means things will seem to get better just before the whole political system falls apart in destruction.
"Peace and Security" from the war on Terror will at some point be declared in the future as well as other peaceful efforts that seem to be working.
So some high up political leaders can declare this to the world and that is the trigger for the end to begin.
I am wondering if Obama could be the catalyst for this "Change" to "Peace & Security" proclamation, as countries seem to favour him and would want
to work with him. Whereas Bush and McCain don't seem like the type that would work towards this, they are the war monger types.
