[32] Now learn a parable of the fig tree [Israel]; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:
[33] So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
[34] Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
[35] Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
Yeah, but these things have been happening for millions of years. NOTHING has changed. What has changed recently? Tell me. Convince me. I see no difference from the past. I don't mean to scoff, or mock. But I don't see anything unusual.

Some people don't want to hear the truth, and I don't mean you. People have been predicting end times for centuries and still nothing has changed. Nature is no more chaotic today than it was back then... Iceland volcanic eruptions are a common occurrence and expected...So are earth quakes, hurricanes and most of the other natural events....They only become disasters when they hit a populated area.

Well there you go...you've now "logically" answered you're own question! The hardness of some of you all hearts will keep you "guessing" about the things of God, when there is a sure way to find out, let me know when you're truly ready to give up YOUR LOGIC!!

Until then, nothing of what we say will make sense......

Dan.12
[1] And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.
[2] And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.
[3] And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.
[4] But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.

Aircraft has allowed our generation to run to and fro like never before; the internet and other technology have allowed for a great increase in knowledge. Just over a century ago, mankind moved about at the speed of horseback, or perhaps a sea vessel, as he always had for thousands of years. But, this is a different generation. It is written. Ye with an ear hear what the Spirit is saying.

Give up logic? You gotta be kidding, right? You are right about one thing though, most of what you say makes no sense to a logical thinker.
