The Rise Of The Greatest Evil

This is part IV in the series, Ride The Vine

Are We Living In The End Times?

This question has been a controversial topic of conversation among Christians since the beginning of the Church. It has been said that every generation has been sure that they will see the second coming of Jesus and so, the reasoning goes, this generation is no different. Indeed, there have been fluctuations in the rise and fall of civilizations throughout history. Eras like the one in which we are living have been seen before…or have they? If so, which era of history most closely mirrors the one in which we live? Are there things we have seen and are seeing that mark this era as different and unique when compared to other periods throughout history?

The Symbolic Snapshot

This is part III in my series, Ride The Vine

After receiving and recording this vision, I did some online research concerning its two main symbols, the pillar and the vine. The intriguing information which I found adds meaning and depth to this message.

The Pillar

The pillar which I saw in the vision was what is known as a Corinthian column. It was fluted and had an elaborate capital. Interestingly, this type of column was mainly used in Roman architecture. What this says symbolically, coincides with my original interpretation of the column representing Western Christianity.
