I asked my mother today, who is in her late
80's, if she ever thought that she would ever
get this old and see 2010 on this side of the
Great Tribulation? She had a very sad look
in her eyes and they teared up and said "No."
She said that when she was studing to come into
the truth in the late 1950's that she was
told then that the end was close and that her
son would not even graduate from high school.
(PS: I graduated in the mid 1960's) She
has lived the last 55 years of her life dreaming
of the future while ignoring the present. She
gave up living her life in the present for a life
in Paradise. Now at her age she can not say
that she was wrong to believe what she does
because that would be admitting that she
believed in a lie.
