How Can We Know If these are the end timesWritten by Dene McGriff

We should remember that there were hundreds of prophesies that related to First Coming of Jesus Christ. Although religious leaders of day didn't see it, they certainly should have because it was clearly written down in black and white. If you doubt me, please read up on subject. I'm not a theologian and my objective is not to expound Scripture for you. My objective is to get you to think for yourself - beyond little box of your "comfort zone." You need to stretch your mind, your imagination, world view you have always believed in. If you don't, you may miss it altogether just like most Jews did first time around. So it stands to reason that if First Coming was so clearly foretold, Second Coming should be evident to those who are looking for it, especially since Jesus Himself spends so much time talking about subject and it is dealt with extensively in whole Bible. At least one fourth of entire Bible deals with “end times”, so doesn’t it seem logical that it was written for a good reason? Does God have a purpose in letting us know what is going to happen? Could it possibly mean that we should do something?
So why hasn't Jesus returned yet? The answer is simply that there are a couple of things clearly foretold that have to happen first. One relates to Church.

But he said to me, "See that you do not do that! I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren who have testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For testimony of Jesus is spirit of prophecy." So what is His testimony? We are! And when I say “we,” I mean Jews and Christians, Israel and Church! The two witnesses!
