Two major evangelical Christian broadcasters have bought places in Jerusalem to give them the perfect perch to witness the coming of the Messiah down from the Mount of Olives.

The Los Angeles Times’ Edmund Sanders reports that Daystar Television Network and Trinity Broadcasting Network have set up shop in Jerusalem studios on a hill that overlooks the Old City.

If you ignore the excellencies of your own house, how do you intend to find other excellencies?
In you is hidden the treasure of treasures, Oh man, know thyself and you shall know the Universe and the Gods."

Doesn't it say that no one will know the hour?  Just the fact that there seems to be a consensus that the 2nd coming is imminent makes me believe it's still generations away.

Just watch, they'll be scooped by another station.

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth a war, is much worse...A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

Yes...no man knoweth the day or the hour...  But there were instructions for believers to be aware of the season of His return and signs for that were given.  Every one of them now are present in the world - all at the same time.  Believers were told to watch so we do. 2 Peter 1-7  

First of all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers [empaiktes] will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires. They will say, "Where is this 'coming' he promised? Ever since our fathers died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation."    
So Peter has your answer.

They're starting pretty early. If various prophecies are legit, it would peg Christ's actual return for around 2020. That is, if the period of 7 years begins on 12/21/2012. Should be interesting nonetheless.

They expect a crowd in "ascension robes" so they had to start early :innocent:

And yet many times in past others interpreted that all the conditions had been met.  Also, although I can't quote specific scripture, I have read plenty and you are not supposed to desire the endtimes, which it seems to me TBN and many Christians do.

I'm not sure where you've read this.  In fact Jesus Himself said those who long for His coming will be given "crowns".  No one is supposed to be joyful about the carnage that is coming.  But if it puts an end to war finally, it will have been worth it.

Wouldn't surprise me, I've always heard the religious crowd believed they would supposedly have the equivalent of spiritual robes upon rapture, or ascension? Something like that. Can't take anything with us when we croak, clothes included. *shrug*

Well, we had that delusion before, just try to find out what happened (mostly in the USA) in 1844.

I've never heard there was going to be a "dress code" :w00t:   In fact I think most Christians believe just the opposite.  We are to put on immortal bodies when we "ascend".

I hope my immortal body has a better dress sense then my mortal one.
I'm hoping for something in a bowler hat actually, a la John Steed.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.
