Down through the years, I have experienced much pain, disappointment and injury from people and I guess I have hurt some people too, especially before salvation. Perhaps after salvation too, but not intentionally. The worst experience was when I was a child when a man murdered my mother. For ten years, all I wanted was to kill him, make him suffer the way I had suffered. It was very difficult, torment even. But the Holy Spirit helped me forgive him. I will be sharing this story in the "Learning to Forgive" webinar on Saturday, December 5, 2020 from 1-3PM. What has been your experience regarding forgiveness or unforgiveness?

The Bible talks about many things happening before Christ returns. One thing is the seven year peace treaty that the beast will make with Israel just before the tribulation period begins. Bible prophesy says that the beast will break the treaty 3-1/2 years after it starts and the "Great Tribulation" period will begin.
So much is happening in our world today. As I read the World of God I noticed that so many of the signs of the coming of Jesus Christ is happening now. A few days ago, the UAE made a peace treaty with Israel after about two decades. This is important because Bible prophesy teaches that every treaty will end with destruction until the beast makes a tready for seven years at the beginning of the tribulation period and mid-way he refuses to honor it. At that time the "Great Tribulation" will begin. (See Dan. 9:27; 2 Thess. 2:3-10).
So, what is all of the centuries of fighting about? The Land. The Bible teaches that the land belonged to God. God gave it to Abraham and his dependents. The Arabs want to divide the land and keep some for themselves. There will never be peace in the middle east as long as the land is divided between the two peoples (Gen. 12:1,7; Exod. 23:20-23).
What do you think about the times that we live in now and the many things that are happening such as the weather patterns, crimes, racial inequality, the economy, presidential election and COVID 19?
