Many Christians think that the events in Lebanon are a sign that the second coming is close. This is nonsense. Jesus is not coming soon. The next major event in God's plan is the conversion of the Jews. This will happen during a time of distress on earth. This will not bring in the end of the world but will be the beginning of a long season of great blessing on the earth.
God has still got plenty to do. We just need to understand all his plans.
We are might be getting close to half time, but the second half will be better than the first. The understand this, have a look at my parable called the Rugby Game. I have done a version for Football players. (I apologise to those Americans who find Rugby to tough and Football to complicated, but I have not been able to do a version for American Football.)
