Many of us may not even know or understand what Armageddon means. According to the dictionary it is defined as, “the place where the final battle will be fought between the forces of good and evil (probably so called in reference to the battlefield of Megiddo. Rev. 16:16).” As I watched the news and saw the devastation in Japan, one news reporter said the scene looked like something out of the Apocalypse. How close are we to the end times? Perhaps St. Matthew says it best in Chapter 24;verses 7 and 8,”7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.”
Are you prepared for that last day when all will be turmoil and chaos? Can you not see the signs of the times? There have been so many natural disasters – fires, earthquakes, floods, droughts, famines…. How else can Jesus gain our attention? His Heart cries out and He finds no solace. The author of this blog firmly believes that there is a remnant of the faithful who are praying that this terrible day will not come. If it does, and it will, the faithful will be part of the remnant that will be snatched up to Heaven and will avoid the wrath to come. Will you be one of them?
