The convergence of all signs

Prophecy Sign:  The convergence of all End-Times prophecies:
The online dictionary version of Merriam-Webster defines the word 'convergence' as the move towards one point by various paths.  Jesus said something similar when talking with his curious disciples when they asked about the signs of the end of days:

Even so, when you see all these things, you know that it is near, right at the door. Matthew 24:33 NIV

I will give you hidden treasures, riches stored in secret places, so…

'We are scared, but we have Jesus': China and its war on Christianity

Prophecy Sign:  Christian Persecution
The Last Days Church;  What will it look like when Jesus returns to snatch away the Bride of Christ?  We have noted in past blog entries that a good portion of this Last Days Church will have succumbed to apostasy and will be following its own teachings that appeal to a narcissistic generation that demands entitlement at every juncture of life.

For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. 2 Timothy 4:3 NIV
But this certainly is not the entirety of what the church will look like at Christ's return.  Much of the church will be in the throws of persecution;  Both in nature of actual persecution, (arrests, detainment, prison, death), and in marginalization, (court rulings against biblical doctrine, media/entertainment hatred of biblical Christianity, removal of Christian emblems from the …
