The bible says that the last days would be cut short because if they were to continue no flesh would survive. That is the kind of tribulation we are looking at in the near future. WMD’s, Ebola, Jihad against Christians and humanity are on the rise and will continue until the end. This is a battle we don’t win but it is a war that we can be victorious no matter what happens to us. The bible says “don’t fear the one that can destroy the body but fear the one that can destroy the body and throw the soul into heal” Hold fast till the end and don’t give in to the edicts of Islam.
