Q. A quick look at current events makes it obvious that the World is being turned up side down. With every day that passes, it seems like something new happens to make me wonder how much longer we can go on? Are the Birth Pangs getting stronger and stronger? Surely we must be the last generation?
A. Almost every Biblically informed observer agrees that the birth pangs of Matt. 24:3-8 are getting more intense and more frequent. And yes, I believe we are the generation that is blessed to see the fulfillment of end times prophecy.
Since it’s not directly connected to any other end times event, the rapture could happen at any time now. As soon as the full number of Gentiles has come in, the Lord will fulfill His promise to come back to take us to be with Him where He is, after which we will be with Him forever (Romans 11:25, John 14:2-3, 1 Thes. 4:17).
As Paul said, “Our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body” (Phil 3:20-21).
