I read a comment from someone on Facebook: "What makes you think Christians are being persecuted?"

Persecution of Christians has been happening right from the start. In 2 John, chapter 11, verse 54, even Jesus had to escape from the persecution of Caiaphas.

In Acts 5: 21, 29-32, the apostles were persecuted and jailed.

Jesus was always very plain about the prophecies. He was asked by his disciples what were the signs of the end of the world.

In Matthew 24: 7, 8, 9
7For nation shall rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom, and there shall be famines and pestilences and earthquakes in divers places.
8All these are the beginning of sorrows.
9Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted and shall kill you, and ye shall be hated by all nations for My name's sake.

If you're not a Christian, you're turning a blind eye towards this happening in our own country. If you are a Christian here in the U.S.A., you already know it's happening here and is going to get worse.
Why do you think Christians are fighting so hard to keep our constitutional rights. America was founded by people who were trying to get away from a country where there was an official church. That's why the first thing they took care of was the rights of freedom of speech, AND to keep ANY laws being made either for or against religious practices.

Anytime you have a country with an official religion, you're going to have people killed for having their own beliefs. People are being killed for being Christian all over the world. It not only CAN happen here in America, it's GOING to happen here.

Watch what's happening in the Muslim countries and remember that is the fastest growing religion in the world. Our own president made the statement that America is no longer a Christian nation, but that we are now a Muslim nation. That sent cold chills down my back when I heard him say that. I mean, I live in the south and it's way too hot to wear a burka down here. Besides the fact, I could get real touchy if some jerk approached me with a cane because I didn't have a man with me when I was shopping.

If America becomes an official Muslim country, not only will Christians be killed, but atheists will be killed also. Think about that when you're making fun of Christians for believing in God.

Will it happen in America? According to verse 9, it says ALL nations.

If you're a voter, you better try to preserve our freedoms as long as possible, because they're quickly being taken away.

This is another sign that we're close to the end of the world as we know it, and it's not that far away.

If your church hasn't taught it's people about the prophecies in the Bible, how are they to know? Jesus said, "When you see these signs start looking up for your redemption draweth nigh."

If you haven't been taught the signs, how are you supposed to know what that means?

Consequently when some fake prophet starts spouting the end of the world is coming on a certain date, the public panics.

Jesus and the apostles taught Christians to look for the signs. Not just one sign, but when all the signs start happening at the same time, that's when you need to start expecting the end.

Paul was very careful to not panic people as he told them of the signs that would signal the rapture and the 7 year tribulation is near.

Second Thessalonians
2. That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
3. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

4. who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God shewing himself that he is God.

Why should you be so shocked as this defection from truth is now picking up speed like a stampede. Did you not realize the implications of these words or did you just ignore them with an "oh well, that might happen a thousand years from now." One sign is a falling away (apostasia: defection from truth). Never before has there been so many standing and saying they don't believe in God. It is now not acceptable to say you believe Jesus is the only way. But it's perfectly all right to say you believe in Jesus as one of the ways, along with all the false gods.

There was a time you could spot a true atheist because even though they didn't believe in God, they didn't care if you did. Not so now. There is now a massive defection from truth, setting the stage for the next prophesy to be fulfilled. Christians are falling, ready to believe every charlatan that comes down the road or on the television. Atheists are organizing and trying to remove any and all signs of God but will fight to the death to keep a cement statue that has to have his little belly rubbed.

The next thing to happen will be the removal of the only thing, the Holy Spirit,  that's been holding back the arrival of the "son of perdition" who will soon thereafter set himself up in the Temple of God, claiming to be God.

I suggest you heed the warning signs.

I'm finding it very hard to write about Bible prophecy without explaining some background along with it. There's so much that people don't know, that causes misunderstandings by Christians and non-Christians alike.

I've heard people say "God couldn't have created the world because science has discovered artifacts that are older than the Bible." That's a yes and a no. Science has discovered artifacts that are older than the average Christian's opinion of how old this world is. In truth, we don't know how many times this earth has had to be straightened up and RE-created, but there's biblical proof that it's happened more than once.

Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

In Hebrew the word used for created is bara, meaning to make. Re'shiyth is the Hebrew word used for beginning, means the first, or the original. So God created the earth in the very start of things, and anything God creates is perfect. God doesn't make junk.

But we know something catastrophic happened between verse one and verse two….

Genesis 1:2 The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And God was hovering over the face of the waters.

The Hebrew word for without form is tohuw, meaning desolate, a worthless thing, lie in waste.

Hebrew word bohuw is used for void, meaning emptiness, an undistinguishable ruin.

Word for darkness is choshek. It means death, destruction. We know God is NOT the author of confusion and he doesn't create things that are in chaos.
Put that all together and you see that God made a perfect earth and something happened that caused it to be a worthless thing, laying in such waste and ruin that you couldn't even distinguishable. Great death and destruction had taken place.

So how many times has God had to straighten up the messes made here? We don't know but we know it's been more than once. And it's going to happen again. We can see it coming pretty soon and it's not the first time. The Bible says there will be a new earth.

So it's pretty obvious then, there is no conflict between the Bible and what science is proving.

Ecclesiastes 1:9 That which has been is, That which is will be. And there is nothing new under the sun.

Geography has never been one of my strong points so for Christmas a few years I received a book of maps with lots of overlays in it.  I was stunned by what I discovered.

We all know Israel is the most written about country in the Bible. But did you know the second most mentioned country is Iraq? Lots of the prophecies in the Bible concern Iraq. When you get into the Book of Revelation, there's more than one chapter devoted to Iraq. Whenever the Bible says Mesopotamia, Land of Shinar or Babylon, it's referring to Iraq. So just in case you think oil is the only reason we should keep our eyes on Iraq, you need to rethink it.

Here's some things that happened in what we now call Iraq:

The garden of Eden was in Iraq, so Adam and Eve were created in Iraq. Satan tempted Eve in the garden in Iraq. That was the first time Satan was mentioned.

Abraham was from Ur, which is in Iraq down south just a little above the Persian Gulf.

Rebekah, Isaac's wife was from Nahor (in Iraq) and Jacob and Rachel met and spent 20 years in Iraq.

Read the first and second chapter of Daniel and you'll the very first world empire was in Iraq. It was also called the cradle of civilization.

God sent Jonah to Nineveh to prophesy against them. Nineveh is in northern Iraq.

The book of Esther happened in Iraq, and the book of Nahum was another prophecy against a city in Iraq.

Nimrod established Babylon in Iraq. Remember when the people decided to build the Tower of Babel to reach heaven and God caused them to all start speaking different languages? Yep. That all took place in Iraq.

When God had enough of the evil in the land, he had Noah build an ark, gather up the animals and Noah's family were the only ones saved. The ark was built in Iraq.

Assyria conquered the 10 tribes of Israel. Assyria is in Iraq.

Of course Babylon, which destroyed Jerusalem, was in Iraq.
Belshazzar, king of Babylon, was in Iraq when he saw the hand writing the warning on the wall.

When Nebuchadnezzar was king of Babylon, he carried the captive Jews into Iraq.

It was in Iraq Daniel was thrown into the lion's den and that the three Hebrew children were thrown into the fiery furnace.

Ezekiel preached in Iraq as did Peter.

According to the whole 18 chapter of Revelation, Iraq will be suffer many plagues that will all come in one day because they have spilled the blood of so many Christians.
