I do believe that we are seeing harbingers ... Russia has moved a ship into the Gulf near Israel, we all know about Gaza, Syria has people of every bent running around amidst chemical weapons, Morsi has virtually declared himself the dictator of Egypt, and Obama/Morsi/Israel are actually talking in serious tones about several nations renewing a couple of old 'peace' agreements. I always say that real life is more bizarre than any fiction. Stir in the eclipses and the first actual Nibiru sightings unaided by infrared telescopes (not to mention the EU financial talks) and I do believe that all of these things will erupt within a very short period of time, some almost simultaneous.
I also believe that the primary hope of the Christian may lead the way --- I refer to the Blessed Hope, of course ... The Rapture! As a matter of coincidence only, I will add that the chattering channelers are speaking almost daily about the Rapture - not always using that term, but are warning their New Agers not to be shocked or concerned if some of their acquaintances 'disappear,' "since we are all on different vibrational levels..." Let's hope so.
