Are we in the tribulation period? Part 1

I wanted to write this today because the tribulation period has been on my mind since I have found that we will not be raptured out before the tribulation period. It's funny how we as humans are so hungry for the easy way out and the Bible clearly teaches that we as Christians will endure trials and tribulations.

I remember thinking to myself, "how am I worthy enough to escape the tribulation?" Then I reread Matthew 24, Luke 21 and Mark 13 and my eyes were opened. Wow.. It was there in black and white the entire time..

Lets look at Matthew 24 first and see if we can line up the present time to what is described in this verses..

Matthew 24: And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

Granted this has been happening for generations. Many have come and claimed to be Christ or some sort of Messianic figure.. 
My favorite of this time frame is José Luis de Jesús Miranda of Creciendo en Gracia sect based in Miami Florida. He had claimed to be the returned Jesus Christ in the flesh and the Anti-Christ. He taught that we were already in Heaven here on earth.. He tattooed his arm with 666 and shortly after his followers began tattooing themselves with 666. One women even had her 3 year old son Tattooed with 666 symbol..This man died in 2013 and since the Bible says that Jesus is alive, it makes this man an Anti-Christ Spirit and just dead.. This is sincerely sad for his followers because of one man and Satan these followers are deceived.

What about Opra? Is she an Anti-christ spirit? Well she teaches that there is no God and there is no Heaven, that we create our own path to Heaven and everyone's Heaven is different. I just went to her site and found that you can achieve wealth, health and happiness for $49 - $149 with her transformation program..  
She gets her teaching from a man named Deepak Chopra who has recently written a book called, "The Future of God" Its selling point is "Find the God in you that transforms everyday life." In another book called "God: A story of Revelation"  he writes this "“God is an empty term except through the revelations of all the saints, prophets, and mystics of history. They exist to plant the seeds of spirituality as a direct experience rather than a matter of hope and faith. No one can say that God was revealed in one consistent shape delivering one consistent message—quite the opposite. 
If you have a women who is nationally known and loved, teach that there is no God! With millions of followers, what else could you call her?

Lets look a little at Westboro Baptist Church.. Here you have a church working for Satan.. They cause Chaos and spread hate and discontent in Gods name. This causes those who do not know God, to look at all Christians the same. That all Christians and churches act this way, but what has happened here is the spreading of the Anti-christ spirit. You have a pastor who teaches his followers to spread hate by picketing against anything and everything they consider to be a sin.. If they had actually read the Bible and took it at its word.. It speaks love, the last commandment given by Jesus.. "Love like I have Loved you!" He told us to go out and spread the Gospel, not to discourage others from receiving the Gospel..

I could go on and on with examples of false Prophets, Witness', Preachers ect. But we need to move on to the next sign..

Matthew 24: And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
Today in America 16 Million children face hunger everyday. I have personally heard from employees from the schools that for many of the Children, the school breakfast and lunch will be their only meals for the day.  They use to have a program here in Washington, where on Fridays you could come and pick up a bag of microwavable food and snacks to last the weekend for each child under 18. Not anymore, this program no longer exist through the school district and at the food bank you can pick up an extra bag of commodities every other Monday through out the summer..
When it comes to food banks, I personally have to use them time to time to make ends meet.. Here I am faced with the choice of eating boxed, processed and expired food. Do I feed the expired and sometimes rotten food to my children or do I toss it and make what we do have work.. I personally throw away all expired food and rotten or moldy vegetables away. But waiting at the food bank, I have watched on several occasion people come in and frantically grab the rotten veggies or moldy bread from the shelves.. 
Lets not count the third world countries where children are dying daily do to hunger related issues. Weather it be the lack of food, food without proper nutrition, dirty water ect. Is there famine in the world?  Yes, there always has been but is it a tribulation type of famine.?
The Huffington post did a great article in October on hunger called "8 Impossible Choices" I have included the article for you to read :
Revelation 6:And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living beings say, “A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine!”
With an average person making approx $9 an hour on an average of an 8 hour day.. that is if you can find a job.. That would be around $72 before taxes. Lets take $10 off for taxes and you are left with around $62 a day with an average work week of 5 days.. That comes to $310 a week and $1240 a month. The average house payment is around $1000  
Who in the heck can live off that.. And you wonder why most of us live in poverty. If you make less then $40,000 dollars a year like we do, then you are scrapping by to make ends meet and the price of food does not fit into this budget. 
On average a gallon of milk is over $3, Cereal is well over $4 a box. I remember buying bread for $.99 now its over $2 for the generic. I heard the other day that ground beef went over $4 a pound and there is a lot of things we do not put in our cupboard, not because we don't want it but because we can not afford it.
I would love to have fruit and vegetables in my home on a daily basis but who can afford $2.98 a pound for grapes, apples and oranges on an average of $1.99 a pound. Have you ever weighed a pound of apples? Its over a pound for approx 2 apples. I wouldn't dare buy berries.. An average pint of blueberries is $5.50 a pint. 
So what are we stuck eating.. The bare minimum and we have to eat what people that are considered middle class wouldn't dare eat themselves. I went to Nasdaq and copied the image to post here because I cant read 
 You can click on the image and it will take you to the site and you can look through all the commodities and their current prices. It looks to me as though the price of wheat has dramatically increased since October.. 

Lets move on to Earthquakes in diverse places.. Diverse means different, and I can not list all the earthquakes that happen just in a 24 hour period so I will give you the link to the 7 day earthquake list site..

YearM6.5 - M6.9M7.0 - M7.9M8.0 - M8.9M9.0+
* List can be updated automatically anytime due to seismic activity in the world. We consider M6.5+ earthquakes.
Since 2011 you can see that the earthquakes with a magnitude of 6.5-6.9 has greatly increased . In the last 10 years there have been 214 and 136 of them were over the last 4 years.. This chart does not included th hundreds of earthquakes under 6.5..  I will let you study the charts yourselves so we can move onto sinkholes..
Since 2011 Sinkholes both Large and small have been popping up world wide increasing in number every year.. Here is a sinkhole in Louisiana that when it initially opened up, it swallowed 100 cypress trees.. This sinkhole started off at a whopping size of 2 acres and today is well over 25 acres in size.. What??? Here is wonderful site you can check out yourself and see all the sinkholes world wide...
Lets head on to Wars and Rumor of wars. As of to date, we can cover the wars and rumor of wars.. Everyday its something new.. Every nation has come against Israel, Every Nation is on the verge of coming against every nation. Without being more specific.. this has come to pass.. 
I am going to continue on with this tomorrow with Part 2 because I didn't realize it would take this long to get you all the information needed for the big picture..
To Be Continued..
And God bless everyone of you..
