    Hello,

    Yesterday I watched "My Hope America with Billy Graham". It's a 3-part series of messages by Billy Graham. I found it on Netflix. I found it to be a message of hope, love and encouragement which is SO VASTLY different from what I saw over the weekend with what ISIS did to those poor Coptic Christians over in Egypt.

    I only watched the first part of the series so far, but it is such a contrast to what others in the world believe to be true. I wish ISIS wasn't so entrenched with darkness and evil in their hearts; they could really use the message of Jesus Christ in their lives.

    Billy G. always conveys the "Good News" even in the light of so many evil things going on in the world today.
    But, while we Should be mindful and soulful of the saving grace of God through Jesus Christ, we need to watch and listen to the other things going on around us.
    ISIS is living up to prophesy, the head of the U.S. has lately turned his back on Israel in favor of Iran, and any number of things going on points to the return of Christ.

    While hating evil and fighting against it as we must do, we can also take refuge and solace in the knowledge that it will not be long before the trumpets sound.

    I agree. If you had asked me even 10 years ago, when I would have thought Christ was coming back, I probably would have said, "oh a thousand years from now". I "woke up" about two years ago, started doing some research about everything our current administration was doing and now I would not be surprised if we see our world turning absolutely upside down in the next couple of years, maybe three. It's unbelievable how the world is turning against Israel; the ONLY sane and normal group of human beings in the middle east, but yes, it was all prophesied long ago. In the meantime, hang onto your hats everyone, the ride is probably going to get even bumpier in the next few years!
