Revelation 4:1 introduces a section of Scripture that details “things which must be hereafter.” What follows are prophecies of the “end times.” We have not yet reached the... More > tribulation, the revelation of the Antichrist, or other “end-time” events. What we do see is a “preparation” for those events. Jesus said that the last days would be preceded by several things: many false Christs would come, deceiving many; we would “hear of wars and rumors of wars”; and there would be an increase in “famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in diverse places. All these are the beginning of sorrows” (Matthew 24:5-8). Today’s news is full of false religions, warfare, and natural disasters. We know that events of the tribulation period will include all that Jesus predicted (Revelation 6:1-8); current events seem to be a build-up for greater trouble ahead.< Less

More > remained to safeguard Clark AB. A series of violent volcanic eruptions hurled ash, rock and gas into the sky.

When it Snowed in Pasadena By R. A. Christmas
