We are clearly living in the last days of this age. A new Kingdom is coming, one built on righteousness and holiness by the King of Kings - Jesus the Messiah. The signs are everywhere to see. Can you discern the signs? Jesus said to watch. Are you watching? One BIG sign is that the truth of the Scriptures are being assaulted by unbelievers and so called Christians alike nowadays; but, it should be of no surprise as the Scriptures reveal this would be the case in the last days: "Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away". Yes, the Scriptures teach us to "turn these people away" and "have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness". What's more, people nowadays meet these traits to a T. Time is quickly running out on this ungodly world.

2 Timothy 3
[1] This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
[2] For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
[3] Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
[4] Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
[5] Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
[6] For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,
[7] Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
[8] Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.
[9] But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was.

Oh, fear mongers still walk among us.

For nearly 2500 years the organized church has concocted dates, time periods and eras (ERRORS) as to when this earth would implode and god's anointed will be beamed up to paradise.

Strange how those who are existing in constant FEAR and ANGUISH of god are always blowing their horns and touting the age old BELIEVE IN GOD OR PERISH crap.

After 2500 years, the world has heard just about everything there is to hear about eternal destruction or life in paradise.

Somehow, accepting the idea of god / jesus / holy spirit simply for the chance to live forever seems SHALLOW and Superficial to say the least.

If one is not into "believing" for he idea of DOING GOOD and improving live, they are just another broken cog in the machine that needs to be replaced with one that is more efficient.

No doubt the people of Noah's day scoffed saying "HA! This crazy man has been building this ark on dry land for 120 years! HA! HA!" However, after 120 years, the ark was finally finished; Noah, his family and the animals were loaded on board. After yet 7 more days (Grace), the door to the ark was finally closed (No more mercy). The rain begin to pour. "Is it just another thunderstorm?", the people wondered. It continued to pour for days on end. Concern set in. It continued to pour and pour and pour as the floods raged; fear and panic struck, but it was too late because Judgement was being executed on the unrepentant. Scoffers had no scoff left in them anymore. Everybody died. Only those in the ark of safety lived.

Flooding is no longer the final means of destruction. Fire is to be the means of destruction. Apparently California is trying to get at the start of the line.

Seriously? Teaching and warning of the truth is fellowship to you? I am pointing people to Jesus because He is the only way and He has laid out a narrow road that leads to life. The broad road that most people travel leads to destruction.

The OP always defines holiness as basically whatever he says it is. And anything that falls outside of what he likes is wrong.

You guys are loopy beyond belief. Forest fires have been a way of life in that part of the world forever. I mean, if you think a forest fire or a hail storm is a sign of the apocalypse, you must go batsh*t crazy when a hurricane strikes the Gulf Coast.

Oh, I see...no fellowship happening ...
just speaking out warnings. I see.
Kind of like the man with verses on his truck and a loudspeaker.
I get it. Take care.
