Jesus clearly alerts us that we are to know the signs of the times, and to watch for signs of His coming and of the coming deception, so we can be alert and ready!
It is therefore important that we keep track of trends in the world, and in the church. Trends that herald His coming, and that alert us to dangers as we approach the day of His return.
Inclusion of a link here does not necessarily imply endorsement of all that the ministry does or teaches. The only endorsement that is worthwhile is that of conformity to Biblical truth. Remember - always use Discernment in your research!

The Rapture is perhaps the most important upcoming event on God's calendar. The date is not knowable by us, and it was not known to Jesus during His life on earth, but I'm sure He knew it when He ascended into Heaven and was given a Name that is above every other name, as Lord of Heaven and earth.
That is why the right balance is to live as if He might rapture us today, yet plan for the future (in our personal lives as well as in our work for the Kingdom of God) as if the Rapture is still far away. Meanwhile it is crucial that we get ourselves as well informed as possible on the Rapture.
I've assembled a number of sound links on the subject, under the page Rapture Links.

End Time Archeology
As we draw nearer to the times of the end, God is beginning to validate many of the Biblical accounts.
Ron Wyatt's Museum has info on recent discoveries in Biblical archeology. The daily news keeps updating us with yet newer discoveries.
Not to be outdone, linguistics is beginning to validate a notion that flies counter to all modern linguistics theories from the time of Grimm, the notion that all the world's languages are related to … Hebrew! It seems that Hebrew is likely to be the one language that is the root language, literally the mother-tongue of the whole earth.

Noah's Ark (link between Dispensation of Conscience and Dispensation of Human Government)
Sodom and Gomorrah (figures in the life of Abraham, the first of the Patriarchs of the Dispensation of Promise)
Red Sea Crossing (figures towards the end of the Dispensation of Promise and leads the way into the Dispensation of Law)
Mount Sinai (the archetypal mountain representing the giving of the Law in the Dispensation of Law)
Ark of the Covenant (the principal object in the Tabernacle Furniture, and later of the Temple, where God met with His people during the Dispensation of Law)
Edenic (The Mother Tongue of the whole earth)
Did one of the many languages that dated back to the time of the Babel confusion remain close enough to the origin (perhaps because Shem and his descendants refused to join in the rebellion), that it can be considered to be the modern version of Edenic? There's a strong probably that Hebrew is that tongue. See also Origin of Speeches.

Sola Dei Gloria (“Sola Deo Gloria”, one of the emphases of the Reformation, means “Glory to God alone”. The title of this blog, Sola Dei Gloria, translates as “Only God's glory”, but the “a” in Sola should be “i”, thus the grammatically accurate title would have been “Soli Dei Gloria”)
