    No one knows the day or the hour when Jesus will return. Only God the Father knows. The important thing is to be ready. Make Jesus the Lord of your life! Do it today!

    Jesus already returned and is busy gathering his people "like a hen gathers her chicks". If you have yet to realize this, perhaps you should draw closer to him. Try studying the letter his father had written for you rather than leaning on your own understanding or just taking some 'holy' man's word on it.

    The world will never end, that is a mis inturp of the bible. Jesus said when all these things happen then the end of age is at the near. All prophicies have been fullfilled and are acurate, you cant dispute a fact. He is coming.

    All of these statements of dead birds, eathquakes, war, etc; these are just natural things of the world. The people weak minded enough to plan their death before the 2012 rumor sickens me. The Mayans may be able to say something. It was atated the world's end would have been nearly 3 or 4 years past. Did anything happen? Nothing but the hurrican that tore southern U.S apart. Having New Orleans suffer horribly. I do not believe anything will happen 2012 but some sort of 'phase' of worldly life.
