GLEANINGS from Claudia: On 9/11

“Jesus answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you.  For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many.  You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come.  Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places.  All these are the beginning of birth pains.” Matthew 24:4-8

Wars and rumors of wars (primarily military casualties listed, millions more died) . . .

“ The Spirit and the bride say, “Come !” And let him who hears say, “Come!” Whoever is  thirsty, let him come; and whoever wishes, let him take the free gift of the water of life.” Revelation 22:17

“Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.”
Matthew 24:42-44
