Isn’t it just as likely that the country will be taken over by the Muslim Brotherhood or another radical Islamic Fundamentalist organization that wants to destroy America and Israel and will kill its own people to accomplish that goal? Should we see this as a clear sign that we are end the end times? Should We Rejoice for Our Redemption Draws Neigh? Will Jesus soon rapture his church? What signs did Jesus say would indicate the beginning of the end times? What does the Bible have to say about these questions?
