Oh, I know that's true, Lord. I believe your word. I just get tired of waiting, especially as I see things falling apart more and more. And you know one of the most frustrating parts of all this? I try to talk to other people about what's happening around us, and they look at me like I'm crazy. Even other Christians accuse me of 'date setting,' and throw the old 'no one knows the day or the hour' scripture at me.
I'm not trying to date set! After all, you're the one who commanded us to be watching and waiting. You said that you would come at a time when no one was expecting and you didn't want us to be caught by surprise. That's what I'm trying to do, but I get so much flak from my family and friends! Am I wrong for comparing current world events to what you said would be happening in the end days?
A highly sophisticated piece of malware began quietly spying on governments and businesses in 2008, according to security specialist Symantec, which warns that the complex code was likely the handiwork of a nation state.
In a note released on Sunday, Symantec Security Response described the Regin malware as a "top-tier espionage tool," which enables "stealthy surveillance."
If the United States and Russia fought a nuclear war, who would win? You might be surprised by the answer. Under the Obama administration, the rapidly aging U.S. strategic nuclear arsenal has been shrinking. Meanwhile, the Russians have been developing an entirely new generation of bombers, submarines and missiles that have the capability of delivering an absolutely crippling first strike. At this point, most Americans consider a full-scale nuclear war to be inconceivable. But in Russia attitudes are completely different.

A short ESPN sports documentary posted online earlier this month is being widely viewed and shared — and when you reach the 50-second mark, you'll see why.
The "E:60″ special follows the story of Kayla Montgomery, one of the top long distance runners in the U.S.
Unlike most of her peers, there is a unique factor that separates the 18-year-old from her competition: she has multiple sclerosis, which has caused nerve damage that results in her legs going completely numb when she runs.
There is a mindset that is pervasive among many Christians today. It is the idea that the Christian life is a life of bliss and easy going. It is my humble estimation that nothing could be further from the truth. Sadly, this mindset is becoming entrenched as the new normal among many evangelicals. God didn't seek us out and save us so that we can sit back and rest on the way to heaven. God saved us because He loves us and for us to bring glory to His name. Why is it that so many believers are content with coasting to the finish line? Why is it that so many professing Christians are living for the here and now? It is because of this false notion of what a Christian life should look like. I find the notion of the 'ideal Christian life' nowhere in the word of God. Lets look at believer's life under God's control as opposed to a life of coasting on: Christian cruise control.
Either this was a case of almost unbelievable incompetence, or there was someone out there that actually wanted this to happen. If someone out there is actually trying to provoke more violence in Ferguson, then the rioters are being played like a fiddle. Most of them have no idea that they could potentially just be pawns in a game that is far larger than they ever imagined. The only other alternative to explain what we just saw is incompetence on a level that is absolutely laughable. Something definitely does not smell right about all of this, and let us hope that at some point the American people get the truth. The following are 10 "coincidences" from Monday night in Ferguson that are too glaring to ignore...
Rob Bell, former megachurch pastor and bestselling author, will finally have his new self-help show premiere on the Oprah Winfrey Network next month, just a few days before Christmas.
A press release from OWN claims that on "The Rob Bell Show," the Christian author "shines a bright light on the topics we most want to talk about but don't know where to begin."
In all its fury and unanimity, the response from the right to President Obama's decision to change immigration policy without the consent of Congress was the manifestation of a major transformation within the Tea Party.
What was the mystery the apostle Paul was referring to in his first letter to the church at Corinth? Could it be that the previously unknown truth he decided to reveal to the Corinthians was the wonderful truth of the Pre-Tribulation Rapture of the church?
The answer to that question is a resounding, "Yes." (As this brief essay will attempt to establish).
