A Thief in the Night

The apostle Paul writes, “Concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I should write to you. For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape” (1 Thessalonians 5:1-3). Bible prophecy shows us God controls history and the destiny of nations. God determines when nations rise and fall. Now what could this mean for America and today’s great powers?

Today’s world could change virtually overnight. It’s happened before and the Bible tells us it will happen again. But you can understand and not be surprised by dramatic changes in world events.

The Bible speaks of the Day of the Lord as a time of great upheaval, cataclysm and also of hope. The Bible reveals that this "day" actually symbolizes a period of time beginning with great trouble for mankind and extending into an eternity of peace.

There are as many end-time scenarios based to some degree on Bible prophecy as there are prophetic teachers. Is there a singular overview of end-time prophecy that can help protect you from end-time catastrophes?

Jesus said that events leading up to His return would take most people by surprise. They will be like people in Noah's day who continued their daily routines thinking life would go on as usual.

Jesus and the apostles exhort us to actively "watch"! We need to understand all that they meant and the wide-ranging implications. Our survival and salvation could depend on that understanding and action!

The Lord's Day refers to the end-time events surrounding the return of Jesus Christ, when He will personally and directly intervene in human affairs.

Many Bible prophecies deal with the time that appears to lie immediately before us—the end of the age of the rule of Satan the devil over the world.

Pompeii's ruins tell a stark and heartrending story. One day Pompeii was a thriving, lively city; the next it was a steaming mound of smoldering volcanic ash. Does Pompeii's tragic tale hold lessons for us today?

In fulfilling His overall purpose, God has brought nations to their knees with one quick unexpected strike. He overthrew Babylon in one night through the Persian army. Egypt was crippled when its army went to the bottom of the Red Sea. Could America's global dominance end in similar fashion?
