There is no doubt about it. We are witnessing an increase in disasters: physical, economic, political and religious. We are witnessing sad divisions within the Church and a general corruption of morals, most notably in the areas of sex, marriage and family life. There is a wide-scale increase in drug use, alcoholism, violent crime, disbelief and atheism. These are signs of the times pointing toward chastisement. The world is sick. Men have become weary of striving to be men. In 1926, Oswald Spengler issued a warning to the Western Nations, a warning which was ignored:

"You are dying. I see in you all the characteristic stigma of decay. I can prove that your great wealth and your great poverty, your capitalism and your socialism, your wars and your revolutions, your atheism and your pessimism and your cynicism, your immorality, your broken-down marriages, your birth-control, that is bleeding you from the bottom and killing you off at the top in your brains - can prove to you that these were characteristic marks of the dying ages of ancient states - Alexandria and Greece and neurotic Rome." (Decline of the West, London: Allen & Unwin, 1932).

Watch and pray.

That post sounds like that from the book of the revelation...The Fall of the great and mighty city of Babylon.
