End time prophecy indicates that at the time of the Lord’s second advent, activities among people would be much like that of Sodom and Gomorrah. (Genesis 18:20-19:28) The Apostle Paul stated of our time: “in the last days... men (people) will be lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God...” (See 2 Timothy 3:1-7) Knowing that the times in which we live would bring great pressure upon Christians to be influenced by worldly thinking, the Apostle Peter admonished Christians, “Seeing that all these things shall be dissolved [this present evil world] what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness?” (2 Peter 3:11)

The Third World Nations have become armed camps of instability that pose a continual threat to world peace. Since the nineties, the United States has carried a record debt and with recurring economic recessions (...)
Is it any wonder that so many ask, ‘‘What is this world coming to?’’ Some go further and reason, ‘‘If there is a God who cares, why does He permit all of this trouble?"

One of God’s prophets, declared that “the desire of all nations shall come.”(Hag. 2:7) All nations desire peace; they desire security against aggression; they desire prosperity for their people; and the Prophet David declares of earth’s new king, Christ Jesus, that “he shall judge the poor of the people, he shall save the children of the needy, and shall break in pieces the oppressor.”—Ps. 72:4
