I didn't want to say "church" may be resented as that's us ,but to make my point as we pass through the signs and pangs that usher in end-times events many of us will be angered at our places of worship many led by philosophical leaders that literally make fun of prophecy, scof at the very trending of times we are entering as poppycock. These are the "happy happy " church and the clever avoidance mechanisms they personally "using" hope, and peace to place their flock in a state of euphoria , safe harbor, and no need to prepare. They seek tithe ( although with some justification ). We will nearly dispise them in time ,but it will be too late. Lulled into complacency most people of faith will be the first to die from lack of -preparedness relying of "God will Provide". Here is an agit for dummies for end-times GOD WON'T BE PROVIDING ANYTHING!!!! Wake up!!! Jesus said " only a fool is unprepared"! I digress to a degree in that God by our faith will comfort our end of life cycle allowing us to enjoy that major benefit not available to panicking unbelievers. Why survive? To be a witness and win souls!!!!!

Default If Real End-times Events Begin To Unfold Will Fellowships Be Resented?

I can't understand this fascination with an end-times scenario created in relatively modern times, certainly not part of original Christianity. We will ALL face our real end time upon our death and rebirth as Spirit. That is the only one you should be thinking about and spending as much of your time spreading agape love as you can before then or repenting when you don't.

Yes Jesus visitation will only comes at a time of Apostasy to save His church from being lost ...........Even though many Christians scoff today at the grace of God , and are weak in the grace of God today there is enough power of God by the faith of His people to keep the antichrist from rising up .....And then there is division with the many churches which comes from the spirit of antichrist , which keep this spirit of antichrist satisfied , ....Where in the end time Christians are going to be pushed in the corner , and then they will stop having division which antichrist will not like it.....

That "this generation" had an end time and change of epoch in the 1st century - the old testament order to the new. This generation, today, has an end time and change of epoch, emerging into the millennium and the reign of Christ through the manifest sons. A third world war is likely to get the rapturists camping out in the streets, so they don't hit the ceiling when they fly upwards.

Luke 17:24 (NRS) For as the lightning flashes and lights up the sky from one side to the other, so will the Son of Man be in his day.

Stay awake or you won't know when your lord has come.

"I'm going to make right a measuring line and justice a level.

Seek justice seek humility perhaps you'll be sheltered on the day of the Lord's anger."
