U.S. Poll: Most Evangelicals Believe We're Living in the End Times

According to its summer 2013 OmniPoll survery, the Barna Group, a well-respected faith and culture research company in Ventura, Calif., found that 41 percent of U.S. adults, 54 percent of Protestants and 77 percent of evangelicals believe the world is now living in the biblical end times.

When asked, “Do you, personally, believe that the world is currently living in the ‘end times’ as described by prophecies in the Bible, or not?” a startling 41 percent of all participants said yes.

The number was even higher for Protestants, with a figure representing just over 1 in 2 Protestant adults. The highest number registered was by evangelicals, with 3 out of 4 evangelical Christians in America believing the world is living in the end times. ...

Will the Church continue to stand for her Lord as she heads through the Great Tribulation? Will she maintain her witness as she experiences the martyredom of her saints? Relief will finally come at the END when Christ returns and all believers and unbelievers will behold Him. Soli Deo Gloria!

Good points US? Thankyou.

The fact that they are "secular" probably doesn't matter since both they and we share the same history - And future - for the time being.

Oh, I don't know Mike of NY, when I'm using one of my more primitive Android tablets, couldn't pass up a bargain , any misfire can happen usually does. The verses were mentioned in the second sermon that I listed in an earlier post, so at least I got that right, but unfortunately the low quality of the structure of the later message(s) shouldn't overshadow the excellent verses that came from the Darby Bible. Darby had the unique technique of marking off what was said emphatically in Greek by putting 2 "**" around the word or phrase. Darby is a great version, pity someone doesn't put it into contemporary English.

I suppose I'm going to be forced to pick up my latest tablet when using the SA app. but anyway, at the URL for this sermon, The Timing of the Rapture you can find a PDF, End Time Diagram, which will be helpful when listening to the sermon.

Question for you. Regarding the various signs which the Lord has referred to in Scripture eg Matthew 24; - The point is made in history about the term "End Times" as being the period of time between Christ's ascension and His return. Now do the signs taught by Christ refer to a final end times "time" (today/future) - Or do they refer to the events observed in these last 2000 years?
For example earthquakes and wars have been occurring throughout history - not just in these last few decades/centuries or whatever.
If Christ saying He was going to return is point A and His return is point B, then by logic we have to be closer to point B than point A. The issue is whether or not the signs are becoming more prevalent than in earlier times. I would say they are more prevalent; like U.S. was saying. No one would say there weren't going to be wars or earthquakes throughout history. It appears you are trying to deconstruct the scriptures concerning the return of the Lord? 2 Peter 3:3,4 warns against that.

But, I'm not sure what your point was?

Question for you.
Thanks for your response. I would consider the following from secular sources so they have no theological agenda.

But between 1997 and 2007 (incl), a period of only 11 years, there were 99 earthquakes with magnitude 7.0 or greater : This is more than a six-fold increase on the previous similar period - and is a stark increase on any earlier decades in 20th century too.

http://www.earth.webecs.co.uk/

New research by Professors Mark Harrison from the University of Warwick and Nikolaus Wolf from Humboldt University has revealed that between 1870 and 2001, the frequency of wars between states increased steadily by 2% a year on average. Between 1870 and 1913, the frequency of ‘pairwise’ conflicts (the numbers of pairs of countries involved in conflicts) increased on average by 6% per year. The frequency of wars increased by 17% per year in the period of the First and Second World Wars, and by 31% per year during the Cold War. In the 1990s, the frequency of wars between states rose by 36% per year.

It would be a meaningless sign if it was just something that happened to occur year in and year out.

The Timing of the Rapture, Part 1 and The Timing of the Rapture, Part 2 summary for the first one,
Gil Rugh said or, wrote:
Not every believer is going to die, but every believer will be changed - instantly - when Christ returns. When He does, He will bring with Him those who have died and they will be reunited with their physical, resurrected bodies that will be changed (glorified.) This return of Christ is called the 'rapture' or, using the Latin term, the 'harpazo' which means to snatch away or to be caught up. Biblcal prophecy concerning this event reveals it to be separate and distinct from the second coming of Christ to earth.

Those future prophecies also reveal several reasons for this event and why it must take place prior to the start of the seven year period identified as the tribulation or 'seventieth week of Daniel.' A careful study of these reasons helps us understand the significance, sequence and timing of these events to the extent of the details God has chosen to reveal.

My two cents.

I would whole-heartedly agree with 1517. I would say of H.Chrystie that they have many excellent points. However, II Timothy 3 reads more like headlines today than it did say 40 years ago. Also, our Lord said when asked about His return, that certain signs would occur. We do, for instance, see an increase in earthquake activiity and wars and rumors of wars seem more frequent. Our Lord said that as in the days of Noah so shall it be when the He comes. We know from Genesis that ...God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.(6:5) That reality is far more prevelant in our world today than just a few years back. While I probably would not see eye to eye with jpw's kingdom view, her excellent point that Christ has called us to be salt and light and take up our cross definitely needs to be heeded. Main thing is we need to watch and pray and live our lives in expectation of our Lord's return. It should be that which motivates us to live a pure and holy life for the praise of His glory. But would agree the day and hour is already set, just have to wait for it to happen.

1517 gave a biblical description of the end times.

Christ said that we would have tribulation.

But God is working out His plan for the salvation of many and the Resurrection is coming. So is Judgment Day.

Many of my beloved friends are caught in the Left Behind version of the "end times". They have come to believe they should sequester themselves from the activities of the world, and just let it fall apart, thinking it this great pessimism, there's nothing they can do. Christ has called us to be salt and light and take up our cross. The Kingdom of God is still being built to this day and for those who refuse to carry on the mantle, God is able to raise up others who will. Amen.

As 1517 says below we have been living in the "End Times" for 2000 years now. Therefore the question is what might some Christians think has prompted the immediate arrival of the very end today?
The "take over" by homosexuals of the moral standards may be forwarded as a possibility. However homosexuality is sin! - sin has been around for 6000 years now! so has sin prompted the arrival of the end? No specific sin is going to do that and God's wrath and punishment upon our nations is not going to be administered because of sin, since God has purpose and plan which cannot be altered by mans natural estate of sin.

The decline of church is another possible reason for thinking the world is coming to the big finish. As pointed out in Sodom and Gomorrah, Genesis 18, God would not destroy those cities if a specific number of Christians remained within. Are we close to a certain small number or diminishing number of (real) Christians in the world which may signify the end? My answer is no because again this is not reflective of divine purpose and plan.

The timing of the very end will be a divine decision regardless of how bad, sinful, man seems, to us, to become. Sinfulness is not an indicator of end times even unbelief in the nations and apostate churches.

This reveals the ignorance or scriptural illiteracy of those administering and reporting on this poll. They are astounded that 41% believe we are living in the end times. Ever since Christ ascended back to glory in heaven, we have living in the end times. Are we closer now than yesterday? Of course. The world will continue to wax from bad to worse. The real danger here for Christians is buying into statistical averaging as the establishing truth. NO ONE ON EARTH knows when Christ will return. It is our duty, and gracious privilege, to live out our days in faith, trust, and obedience to Him who is worthy. May His return, truly, be imminent.
