How to Recognize the End Times
- Tuesday, July 03, 2012
The millennium and the new Heaven and Earth
So, "S," in order to read the signs well and not be deceived, I recommend that you:
- carefully study the Bible passages referring to the end
- keep an eye on world events
- Listen to spiritual men and women who listen to God for their insights into "the times of the end."
Finally, remember that Paul wrote in 1 Thessalonians 5:4: “But you, brothers, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief…”
I hope this helps.
