In order have a feel for the political surrounding one must be current on world events. These events clearly point to wars and rumors of wars, and as we know this signifies the beginning of sorrows. The opposite feeling the world is embracing is one of, “peace and safety.” We know that In this environment of “peace and safety” our Savior will return 1 Thess. 5:3. This also correlates with the time of “a thief in the night” 1 Thess. 5:2. Nobody says peace and safety before the battle, but after the battle is over. Immediately after the tribulation of those days… you will see Jesus return… and gather His elect, Matt.24:29-31.
