DEUTERONOMY 4:30 "When thou art in tribulation and all these things come upon you, even in the latter days, if you will turn to the Lord thy God, and shalt be obedient unto His voice: for the Lord thy God is a merciful God, and He will not forsake thee."
Your Bible will prove from its beginning to its end that God knows all: Even the future to the end; as well as all the past. Perhaps this scripture message was given to God's people over 2 thousand years ago, but note; God warned of a feared tribulation in the latter days; and my friends we are seeing that happening right now. We are seeing huge crowds of disappointed people gathering in many places of the world. They are confused, but do not know what they need, nor what to ask for. They want present conditions to change for the better, but they do not know what has caused all the terrible troubles that are happening. They must realize people all over the world have turned from God's ways, and God is hurt and angry. The solution is simple and the only way to stop the terrible troubles is for people to turn and seek God's ways with honest praise, respect, and love that Got deserves. That will please Him and the unwanted troubles will fade and return to normal.
Now here is a question I hope you will give serious thought... Will people of this world do this? The right answer is no. That is not the way God's message in His Bible is written. It will get much worse until Satan as Antichrist will have power to come and bring a temporary peace that will deceive most of the people in the world and all will worship him except those who have their names written in the Lamb's book of life. Those names will not be written with ink according to your bible, the Holy Ghost of God will write them in Christ's book for eternal life by His spirit.
No Bible scholar is worth mentioning unless they agree we are right now living in the latter days. And God has warned that if His people sin enough to anger Him, He will punish without Mercy. We may be seeing that now. Note what happened in Japan.
