I am a strong believer in the Second Coming of Christ, I am pre-trib and pre-mil no bones about it.
My first messaged I ever preach on a Wednesday Night in May of 1969 was "Here comes the Judge" a message on the Second Coming.
About eight years ago I received this email concerning the end times.
Where are we at in 2009, how many have come true or even close to being fulfilled.
