Matthew 24:3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?
THE DISCIPLES ASKED JESUS THREE QUESTIONS When will the Temple be destroyed? (this one is history) What will be the SIGNS of Your coming? What will be the SIGNS of the end of the world?
Do We Know When Jesus Will Return, Or When The End Of The World Will Be? NO!
NO MAN KNOWS NO ANGEL KNOWS NOT EVEN THE SON OF MAN KNOWS! Mark 13:32 But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.
What should our attitude be concerning the return of Jesus Christ?
We Should Have A PAY ATTENTION Attitude We Should Have A BELIEVING Attitude We Should Have An Attitude of ACCOUNTABILITY
When Tim LaHaye talks, the faithful listenby the millions. The conservative Protestant minister is the coauthor of the wildly popular apocalyptic Left Behind novels.
The controversial books, which have sold more than 60 million copies, depict the biblical end of the world: the Christian eschatology of the upheaval that precedes the second coming of Jesus Christ, known also as end times.
LaHaye recently spoke with NEWSWEEKs Brian Braiker about why he believes the events currently unfolding in the Middle East reflect biblical prophesy…
NW: How do you interpret whats happening in the Middle East? Are you seeing signs that these are the end of days?
Tim LaHaye: Biblically speaking, the very nations that are mentioned in prophecyand have been mentioned for 2,500 years as occupying the focus of the tension of the last daysare the very nations that are involved in the conflict right now…
Tim LaHaye: That may be one of the reasons theres a sudden interest in bible prophecy because all of a sudden they realize end-time events could possibly take place and break forth right now.
NW: But first-century Christians believed that the end of the world could come during their lifetime.
Tim LaHaye: We call it the belief in the imminent return of Christ. Its a motivational factor to serve the Lord and not let the world be so much with us that we dont serve the Lord in the spiritual environment.
NW: Couldn't almost anything then be taken as a clue that any point in history might be the end times?
Tim LaHaye: Down through the years thats true. But never the accumulation of events as we have today. I have often said that no one knows the day nor the hour that Christ will come…
Tim LaHaye: But no generation has had so many signs of the times as our generation. We have more reason to believe that Christ could come in our lifetime than any generation before us.
What did Jesus Christ say about the SIGNS of His coming and the end of the world?
Matthew 24:4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
We need to seriously understand the importance of what Jesus is about to say!
TAKE HEED Literally means to keep your eyes open! TAKE HEED Literally means to keep your eyes open!
TAKE HEED There is going to be some serious misinformation given on this subject, so listen to Me carefully! TAKE HEED There is going to be some serious misinformation given on this subject, so listen to Me carefully!
Matthew 24:5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
Many will claim to be the messiah and will claim to have the answers to solve all of the worlds problems!
People are desperate for leadership, especially politically and religiously.
When these two are blended together, it is amazingly powerful!
I dont think the last days will be marked so much by Coo-Coo Christs as I do Counterfeit Christs!

One god – Allah One major prophet – Mohammed Mohammed ascended into heaven Mohammed has 12 Imams The 12 th Imam is coming again THE DECEPTION OF ISLAM
Imam Mehdi will remain underground for more than 1000 years and shall appear with Jesus to spread Islam world-wide! مهدي
Islam is in fact, not a peaceful religion that has been hijacked by radicals or extremists! ANOTHER DECEPTION FROM ISLAM
Mohammed did conquer with the sword! This is history whether the Pope believes is or not (this week). ANOTHER DECEPTION FROM ISLAM
Remember your lord inspired the angels with the message: I am with you; give firmness to the believers; I will instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers; you smite above their necks and smite all their fingertips off them. A BLOODTHIRSTY SPIRIT (a quick look at the Quran) Surah 8:12-14
This is because they contend against allah and his messenger; if any contend against allah and his messenger, allah is strict in punishment. A BLOODTHIRSTY SPIRIT (a quick look at the Quran) Surah 8:12-14
JIHAD Strive For The Cause Of Islam JIHAD Strive For The Cause Of Islam
THE FOURFOLD FOCUS OF 1. Fight (kill) the enemy of Islam 2. Fight (kill) the oppressors 3. Fight (kill) the infidels 4. Fight (kill) for the expansion of Islam JIHAD
Hundreds upon hundreds of Hadith and Quranic verses speak of warfare, violence, killing and bloodshed!
Islam is not a peaceful religion! That is DECEPTION!
In a speech to a large group of Muslim leaders, President Bush said: Ramadan is the holiest time of the Muslim year. According to Islamic teaching, this month commemorates the revelation of Gods Word to the Prophet Mohammed in the form of the Quran. For more than a billion Muslims, Ramadan is a time of heartfelt prayer and togetherness... Listen To President Bush On October 7 th, 2005
In a speech to a large group of Muslim leaders, President Bush said: I have encouraged American families to travel abroad, to visit with Muslim families. He continues: I have asked young Americans to study the language and customs of the broader Middle East. And for the first time in our nations history, we have added a Quran to the White House library. Listen To President Bush On October 7 th, 2005
Islam denies the deity of Jesus and despises His Cross!
It denies the redemption and the forgiveness that were wrought for mankind through the shed blood of Jesus
It denies the Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ! (Surah 4:157 & 171; 5:75; 9:30)
To a radical Muslim, dying and killing for the cause of Islam is not only an honor, but a way of pleasing Allah!
The only way a Muslim can have assurance of salvation and eternal life, is by becoming a martyr for the cause of Islam
THIS IS WHY SO MANY YOUNG BOYS VOLUNTEER!
TO BLAME IT ON GEORGE W. BUSH IS ABSURD!

John 3: For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
