Are We Even Closer Than You Say?

Q. First I want to thank you for your efforts and insight.  These are truly times of both terror and joy.  My question is in regards to your latest article “A Chronology Of End Times Events”.  I’ve read many times that the expected time of Jesus’ return is “about 70 years” from 1948. However, wouldn’t those be Jewish (360-day) years and not our 365.25-day years?  5.25 days over 70 years trims off an entire year!  Are we closer than we think?

Will You Examine Yourself?

Oswald Chambers 90x115 by Oswald Chambers

Joshua said to the people, ’You cannot serve the Lord . . .’ —Joshua 24:19

Do you have even the slightest reliance on anything or anyone other than God? Is there a remnant of reliance left on any natural quality within you, or on any particular set of circumstances? Are you relying on yourself in any manner whatsoever regarding this new proposal or plan which God has placed before you? Will you examine yourself by asking these probing questions? It really is true to say, “I cannot live a holy life,” but you can decide to let Jesus Christ make you holy. “You cannot serve the Lord . . .”— but you can place yourself in the proper position where God’s almighty power will flow through you. Is your relationship with God sufficient for you to expect Him to exhibit His wonderful life in you?
