Are We Living in the End Times? Greg Laurie on Bible Prophecy Amid Chaos
Are We Living in the End Times? Greg Laurie on Bible Prophecy Amid Chaos
Are the end times upon us? This has been a central question among Christians for the past two millennia, though recent events have once again catapulted eschatology to the theological forefront. Greg Laurie, pastor of Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside, California, is among the most well-known preachers in America. He’s also more than willing to discuss what Scripture says about the end of days — an oft-times avoided or played down topic in some houses of worship. Hear him explain why it’s essential to understand Bible prophecy.

Greg Laurie, including many other pastors, have no clue about the end times, and more importantly, why the end times began when it did.
“…politics have their place but they don’t take the place of the gospel – or they shouldn’t – and it seems to me that some Christians are more fired up about politics than they are about the gospel.”
But then you go on to say, “We need a revival in America. We need a spiritual awakening.”
No question about it. “We” need a revival. But when you say, “We need a revival in America”, it seems to me that most people will think you mean the “conversion” of the officers of our nation (or the election of Christian officers) is what is needed – even if that isn’t what you intend to imply.
“We’re making a film right now called The Jesus Revolution.”
The way I read my Bible, “conversion” is the miracle whereby a person’s trust is transferred from what he thought he could do to save himself from sin or its consequences to what the Lord does to save us.
I hope and pray that the film will be instrumental in encouraging people to trust the Lord but I fear that most of my neighbors will think the name of the movie implies a call to a political revolution in the name of him who said, “My kingdom is not of this world.”
P.S. If anyone reading this is interested, please request a list of reasons that I don’t subscribe to the eschatology that is currently popular among conservatives in the United States.
Directly North of Israel TURKEY
When y’all gon realize the man in the sky ain’t coming
I heard from God that anyone who believes in God after the rapture instantly goes up to the sky and goes to Heaven!
The demons will make people think God doesn’t even exist at all! And that selling soul is just bcoming your magical true self!!
I have lost count of the number of end time predictions that I have survived…..
Get right with God friends, don’t wait another day! About 500 prophecies fulfilled hundreds and thousands of years in advance prove the Bible is God’s word. Believe and repent, 1 Corinthians 15:1-4!
starvation seems to be next now, theres crisis globally in agriculture and the russian-ukraine war are escalating it dramatically
Ooh did you see the world change miracle of Matthew 24:24-25 and 2 Thessalonians. The Matthew 24:25 world change miracle has activated! And it’s pretty funny, we got a good one.
The possessed/fake husbands/wives will hate and be cold at anyone who decides to become Christian or already is, and will send Christians to the camps and the Christians will even be stolen from and eslaved! And the demons will just lie about this!
The Antichrist/fake alien/possessed idol/Beast system will say Jesus and God aren’t even real but fake!!!
Satan’s fake ufos will attack and the fake good aliens will be Satan’s plan of trying to get people to sell their souls. So the alien thing will be common so the people will not find it strange when Christians are caught up, they may even try to say it’s more aliens!
Anything with 666 is the Beast/Antichrist. The Antichrist can appear as using possessed singers, possessed other entertainers and as using fake aliens.
Most of the world will be worshipping the demons, Beast/Antichrist, idols, possessed cases, images etc. and the Christians will be opresssed and hated, stolen from, made poor, and thought backward and put in camps and even enslaved and the demons will lie about God and Chriatianity!
Heard Russia refers to their land ..as the motherland ..sounds like a broken home ..lacking father
I just went to look up Matthew 24 I have my sons bible the book mark was already there
The biggest force pushing people away from the belief in God are the Christians themselves. I once was a believer, I went to church every Sunday and bible study every Wednesday for years, then covid happened. I found the evangelical church, the people are drowning in self imposed ignorance. As I see "the signs of the end" I cannot believe it because of the church herself.
Christians VS Free Masonry
Albert Pike Letter
I didn’t realize the Rapture was actually beautiful. Colorful stars ont he ground. The people who are caught up tob e on the cloud and meet the Lord in the air and be happy finally being reunited with the Lord, and will become glowy and colorful as if the new stars, the sun will be dark making night, and the moon will be red like a rose!
According to Mathew 24, we go through the tribulation before Jesus comes. Also in 2 Thessalonians chapter 2, it clearly says all things happen before Christ comes again
People selling their soul for the wordly may even become the new normal and only the Christians won’t be walking around with a bajillion dollars and the free stuff, fulfilled wishes etc.! But then the people who sold their soul will shrink and go poof, the Abomination of Desolation!
My son died 6 years ago in a tragic car accident
Angels will take free stuff and wishes from the Antichrist and give them to the Christians and Muslims as a reward for staying with God!
In the Rapture, after the stars fall the sun becomes dark and the moon becomes blood red, believers are caught up by the angels to a diamond shaped cloud to meet the Lord in the air and become shiny and colorful to represent the new stars and God’s Children shining brighter than the stars!
How do you give your life to Jesus I’ve tried many times and turned away
It seems to me that the "end times" as it’s used today is more of a scare tactic.
The first century jews also believed in the end times and they thought it would be within their life span.
Even Jesus (if real) was an apocalyptic jew. Meaning he thought the end time was near and that was thousands of years ago.
I simply don’t understand why people are so engulfed with this concept but then I realize that religion mutates and it usually adapts to the Era its being preached in.
I say this because we (being rational) have absolutely no reason to think this. Yes everything probably has an end date but the honest answer is "I don’t know"!.
The Rapture will actually be beautiful, not strange.
For to what angel did God ever say, Thou art my Son, today I have begotten thee? In this letter to the Hebrews, Paul pinpoints David as Gods Son; yet every Christian (and I include myself) is taught that Paul is speaking of Jesus Christ, and it is not so, for to the New Testament writers Jesus Christ is Jehovah. It is David who reflects Gods glory, for it is David who is the express image of his person.
Indeed no Antichrist nonsense will ever be able to replace the truth, and they only further prove Christianity and Islam!
The earth is a square diamond of seas with a pyramid sky and a cirlce of land earth isnt he middle of the seas!
I am over 60, and let me tell you, everything just seems very weird in America. It’s like all the foundations that we took for granted are gone or are moving now. Trans children, world war on the horizon, complete societal collapse, these could definitely be the last of the last days!
Red Alert! Red Alert! Satan’s mind control, motion control, fake drunkenness, fake heart flutter, mind wiping, etc. effects are increasing again in Asia and only seem to be increasing. Soon if you don’t know Jesus, God, Muhammad, Buddha, Allah, Voodoo, Brahma, Vishnu, or Santeria (kneeling only reduces the effect), you will likely be trapped and sedated to death by a bunch of demons, and another plot of a fake space planet beach resort mall diner etc. is coming in mere days (it is true just like his last plan the house of the rising sun plan, 99 red balloons song was only a signal this was coming and that was in the 80s so it must be ready). so soon will end up in a fake planet that is really Limbo in Hell!
Antichrist’s forces pretending to be the pop singers, entertainers and even pretending to be aliens already!
This is no better than gossip
This new strange energy vibe is off the charts. It’s him, the Antichrist comes into action! The Antichrist will be defeated by Jesus’s light at the Second Coming!
The Antichrist/Dajjal’s apparent pleasures are really his punishments and apparent punishments are really his pleasures. God says to pray and jump into the apparent punishments.
The demons may even say that God’s judgement against them is really the Christians being bad guys/girls and use this to opress/hate/ put in camps Christians!!
We are at Daniel 7:25, Amos 5, Matthew 24:12 heading to Matthew 24:24, 2 Thessalonians 9-12. The Great Tribulation, no elect being fooled and Abomination of Desolation are already starting!
And if the the rapture does take place after the tribulation, are we ready for that.
It’s one thing to be ready for the rapture. It’s another thing to be ready for tribulation.
Not looking for an argument. Simply making a statement.
What if we find out that the eschatology we have been taught is wrong?
It would take more faith to endure tribulation than to be caught up before it.
God said yes it is the End Times.
The Earth will dry out before the dajjal/Antichrist comes from being already active to physically appearing on earth. Believers will have to read the Bible/Quran/say prayers and that will be their food and drink then.
The red moon and the fallen stars at night while believers in God are on the diamond shaped cloud is actually shortly after the Great Tribulation ends, and is meant to be beautiful meeting with the Lord, not scary as Hollywood depicts!
The Antichrist’s fake UFO plot is planned by God as a representation of the real rapture, on which also people will be caught up when it’s night/dark and when the moon is the light!
Indeed though it’s depicted as a bunch of people disappearing to the sky in glows by Hollywood, the Rapture will actually be beautiful, not strange.
Rapture in 7 years!
We live in the end times already, the signs of end times are just increasing now…just don’t worry or be dreadful because this is inevitable…all we need to do is God’s will always.
It’s amazing how much money the preacher industry makes from using the Bible.
