Well it’s here, the big 2014 and 2013 is behind us with all of the prophecies of the Lords return and coming devastations.  I’m not saying those things aren’t in the near future but we need to focus on serving God and witnessing to the lost rather than preparing for the “rapture”. We should be preaching God’s word, helping  widows, feeding the homeless while keeping our lamps filled with oil and watching for his coming.

With all that said, I will step out on a limb and say 2014 will no doubt be a huge year in prophecy, how do I know?, you say.  The bible tells us once we begin to see signs of his returning that those things will not calm down again (birth pains, if you will).  Troubles will be starting out once in a while then become more and more frequent, we can see reference to this in Matthew and Revelation if you care to research it.

No need to make silly predictions about this coming year but you can be sure that if we are in the end times (I believe we are), then these things will become much more frequent as we proceed into the coming months and years.

Have a great year, keep evangelizing and looking forward to the return of Jesus our Lord.
