DaryLLL: Why, i don't think it is depressing at all! God said it would all happen, so i am not scared or worried! I just thought that it would be interesting to see what other christians thought, outside of my church. Sorry.
The disciples believed they were living in the end times and I don't doubt them. I personally think that the "end times" began when Christ assended into heaven.
Personally I find the study of eschatology to be very fascinating. I suppose b/c I find it comforting to now that one day I will no lnoger be dealing eith the problems currently in my life, but I will spend eternity in heaven singing praise to my Redeemer, Creator. I love to sing and I can harldy wait to hear the throng of the Redeemed singing to Christ. I kind of imagine singing Handel's Messiah in its entirity. I am sure there will be lots of others songs to sing, but handle is one of my favorites!
We all know that God is not going to have things happen out of order. If you read the bible you know God to be omnipotient, the same forever and throughout time. He does not change, and will not change His plans. Revelation will happen just as it is told, not our of order.
This will begin with the Rapture....
So I voted no.
In the end I don't spend a lot of time thinking baout because wherther it is tomarrow or 1000 years from now I only have a limited time to do anyting about it (as far as reaching others) and I feel we should always behave as if it could happen any second.
The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it. We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.
I would vote no. I believe that we are in the end days of the dispensation of Grace, as we were when Paul and the apostles were on earth. But, like others have mentioned, we as Christians are waiting for the rapture, which will have to happen first to get things moving.
I also don't believe Christians will experience any of Revelation. But, all the events in the world are surely marching towards that time, eventually.
God has allowed somethings to occur in my life, that have totally changed my paradigm. I want to be part of His bigger picture and trying to figure out the signs of times seems to be less important.
Just sharing my honest thoughts
