In the Bible we are told to watch and to prepare. Part of watching involves understanding what the Bible says and then speculating on possible watch dates. It helps us to keep things in perspective and gives a sense of urgency in the necessary preparation. Physical preparations are important, but spiritual preparations are the most critical in order to be ready for the end date when it finally comes.
We are all at different stages of readiness. Some are awake while most are asleep. Those that are awake are like Neo in the movie the Matrix, desperately trying to figure things out and escape the illusionary world we are captive to. In order to escape, we need a survival guide to the universe. The universe survival guide for both living in this world as well as escaping it are all contained in God’s words given to us in the Bible. Read it carefully and meditate on it continually! It contains the required instructions for life both in this world and the world to come.
