When Sarah Palin was mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, she apparently was not afraid to let her evangelical beliefs be known.
Wasilla resident, Phil Munger, a music composer and teacher said this about Palin: "She looked in my eyes and said, 'Yes, I think I will see Jesus come back to earth in my lifetime'."
Munger also claims to have discussed creation and evolution with Palin.
The Independent is reporting that Munger also said the following about Palin: "She wanted to get people who believed in creationism on the [school] board. I bumped into her after my band played at a graduation ceremony at the Assembly of God [a church]. I said, 'Sarah, how can you believe in creationism – your father's a science teacher.' And she said, 'We don't have to agree on everything.' I pushed her on the earth's creation, whether it was really less than 7,000 years old and whether dinosaurs and humans walked the earth at the same time. And she said yes, she'd seen images somewhere of dinosaur fossils with human footprints in them."
Beliefs such as these are alarming some Americans who aren't sure that they agree with Palin on these issues.
So is there any rational reason for Palin to believe that Jesus could be coming back to earth in our lifetimes?
Well, many Christians would argue that there are ancient prophecies that are being fulfilled in our lifetimes right in front of our very eyes?
Below are just a few examples.....
1) The rebirth of Israel and the rebuilding of the Temple.
Did you know that no nation that has ceased to exist has EVER come back into being after 2000 years of not being a nation?
But the Bible says that Israel would once again be a nation in the end times and that the Temple will be rebuilt in Jerusalem.
See Ezekiel 37, 2 Thessalonians 2, Revelation 11, etc.
Result: THAT HAPPENED AND IS HAPPENING

2) The rebirth of the Roman Empire.
Did you realize that the Bible predicts a resurgence of the Roman Empire in the last days?
See Daniel 2, Daniel 7, etc.
Result: THAT IS HAPPENING
3) The Bible foretold that we would have to have a mark on our right hand or on our forehead to buy or sell.
See Revelation 13
Result: THAT IS HAPPENING - ARE YOU READY FOR YOUR CHIP PEOPLE?
4) The Bible foretold that there would be an army of 200 million men.
Prior to the 20th century the population of the world was such that an army of that magnitude was absolutely inconceivable.
See Revelation 9:16
Result: THAT IS HAPPENING
5) The Bible foretold a time when all the people of the earth would look upon God's prophets in Jerusalem.
Before television and modern communications that would be IMPOSSIBLE.
But now, since the 20th century, the prophecy of Revelation 11:9 can be fulfilled.
See Revelation 11:9
Shall I go on?
There is so much prophecy that is being fulfilled right in front of our eyes, and yet so many are willingly blind to it.
At least Sarah Palin realizes what is going on.
