Does it feels like “the world is falling apart”?

“If you watch the nightly news, it feels like the world is falling apart, said Obama.”

Well, Mr. President, the world is indeed falling apart (even though we know that the media has an agenda – subject for another topic), and it will continue to do so until Jesus comes. “For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.” 1 Thessalonians 5:3 “But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.” 2 Timothy 3:13  Can we see that trouble is increasing, as birth pain contractions?

“But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by. Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.” Luke 21:9-11

“And 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?… And 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.” Matthew 24:6

“The commencement of that time of trouble,” here mentioned does not refer to the time when the plagues shall begin to be poured out, but to a short period just before they are poured out, while Christ is in the sanctuary. At that time, while the work of salvation is closing, trouble will be coming on the earth, and the nations will be angry, yet held in check so as not to prevent the work of the third angel. At that time the “latter rain,” or refreshing from the presence of the Lord, will come, to give power to the loud voice of the third angel, and prepare the saints to stand in the period when the seven last plagues shall be poured out. – {EW 85.3} – EW 85.

Wars and rumours of wars

Iran, Israel, the US and North Korea, what do they all have in common, war and rumors of war. War talk, coming from nations that are armed with deadly nuclear weapons. At least two of these nations for sure have nuclear weapons (US and North Korea), one most likely has it (Israel) and Iran is said to be pursuing it (maybe already has it). In any case the talk of war and the increase in tensions can lead to mass catastrophe.

The Bible says:

“And 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. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom:and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.” (Matthew 24:6-7)

From the book education we read:

The present is a time of overwhelming interest to all living. Rulers and statesmen, men who occupy positions of trust and authority, thinking men and women of all classes, have their attention fixed upon the events taking place about us. They are watching the strained, restless relations that exist among the nations. They observe the intensity that is taking possession of every earthly element, and they recognize that something great and decisive is about to take place—that the world is on the verge of a stupendous crisis. – {Ed 179.5}

From the book last days events we read:

We shall see troubles on all sides. Thousands of ships will be hurled into the depths of the sea. Navies will go down, and human lives will be sacrificed by millions. Fires will break out unexpectedly and no human effort will be able to quench them. The palaces of earth will be swept away in the fury of the flames. Disasters by rail will become more and more frequent. Confusion, collision, and death without a moment’s warning will occur on the great lines of travel. The end is near, probation is closing. Oh, let us seek God while He may be found, call upon Him while He is near!—Messages to Young People, 89, 90 (1890). – {LDE 24.1}

Indeed, “the end is near, probation is closing”, if there is a nuclear war, millions of lives will be sacrificed. It is time to “seek God while He may be found, call upon Him while He is near”, the end of all things is at hand. In the words of Prophet Amos, …prepare to meet thy God, O Israel [Gods people]. (Amos 4:12)
