Signs Of The Times – What To Watch For

Wars, Violence, Lawlessness

Watch for wars – big wars, little wars, ethnic wars, wars of all sorts, a,one with escalating violence and increasing lawlessness- with increasingly affect all over the world, Especially English speaking nations (Matthew 24:6-7).

Drought And Famine

Lack of rain and lack of food – will stalk the earth on a massive scale never seen before. Yes, these things will become much much worse.

When there is drought you also have wildfires. After the fires have burned the brush, there is always the danger of flooding when it resumes raining because there is no vegetation. These catastrophes of drought, famine, fire, flooding naturally tend to go together (Matthew 24:7).

Earthquakes And Other Natural Catastrophes

God prophesies that earthquakes and other natural catastrophes will increase as we approach the end of this age ( Mark 13:8; Matthew 27:7).

Disease Epidemics

A plague of disease epidemic and pandemic is beginning to worry public health officials all around the world. And many old scourges of humanity (Malaria and tuberculosis to name two) are re-emerging as super, drug resistant diseases that ignore medicine which was formerly used to combat them. ( Revelation 6:8). Some of the worse plagues of humanity have been animal borne. Diseases will become much worse. (Deuteronomy 28:15, 22, 27-28).

The Rise Of An Aggressive Fundamentalist Islamic Power

In the time of the end, the Bible predicts that there will arise, in North Africa or the Middle East, a charismatic personality who will be able to unify, harness, and lead a powerful block of nations in which Egypt will have a key role. (Daniel 11:31-40; 42-43).

An Ascendant European Union Seeks Global Primacy

Watch Europe! Revelation 13 describes the revival of a great military power. The symbolic language that Apostle John used about a fantastic beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns depicts a recurring, evil political system which has greatly oppressed and heavily influenced the people in Western civilization, and through them, the entire world. (Revelation 13:7; 17:12-14; Revelation 18:3; Daniel 11;36).

A Powerful Religious Figure Leads A Religious Revival

One of the definite signs of the end times, which will herald the close of this present evil age, is a arrival on the scene of a great false religious leader (Revelation 19:19-21). This religious leader will possess great charisma and will receive a very powerful influence over a political power. ( Revelation 13, 17, 19) He will be the long-prophesied, influential head of a great militant church in Europe. It will have an enormous effect on the future of nations of the Western world. A great religiopolitical trading system (Revelation 18:3).

A Great False Religious Leader

He will rise up very soon now. He will deceive many people. Hundreds of millions of people will be deceived. That is exactly what will occur before Christ’s coming (2 Thessalonians 2:1) This man will have supernatural power to deceive. He will have the ability to perform great miracles such as causing fire to come down out of the sky (Revelation 13:13; Matthew 24:4; Acts 8:9-11).

If you know God’s word and obey it you will not be one of those many millions who will be deceived by the soon-coming great “false prophet.”

The Gospel Of The Kingdom Of God Preached To All Nations

This is not the time when God is trying to convert everyone, as many ministers, who are trying to save the world right now would have you believe. God is not going around like a lonely hound dog wagging his tail and hoping someone will pay attention to him. Through his sins, man has cut himself off from God ( Isaiah 59:1-2). Jesus said, “No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him, and I will raise him up at the last day (John 6:44).

Faith Again Becomes A Matter Of Life Or Death

Persecution of the Christians (Revelations 12:17; 14:12). Jesus said, “Then they will deliver you up to kill you” (Matthew 24:9). He is speaking to His people, His genuine disciples. The Apostle John gave the church and anyone who reads the Bible a test that can be used to determine who is a bona side Christian and who only masquerades as one. “Now by this, we know them Him, if we keep His commandments He who says, I know Him and does not keep His commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in him ( 1 John 2:3-4). It is these commandments keeping Christians who will be persecuted (Matthew 25:9)

A Crisis Strikes a Jerusalem

Watch! The modern nation of “Isreal,” populated by the descendants of the biblical tribe of Judah (plus significant remnants of Levi and Benjamin ) will suffer military loses with part of its territory occupied by enemies just before the Second Coming of Christ (Zechariah 14;1-2).

“For behold, in those days and at that time, when I bring back the captives of Judah and Jerusalem. I will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat, and I will enter into my judgment with them there on the account of My people. My heritage Isreal, whom they have scattered among the nations; they have also divided up my land. (Joel 3:1-3).

The Abomination Of Desolation

When the city of Jerusalem is attacked and conquered, the foreign occupying power will begin what the Bible called the “Abomination of Desolation (Matthew 24:15-20).

A prophecy foretells that Jerusalem is again to be surrounded by armies and an idol will be set up in the Holy Place (Zechariah 12:2). Jesus warns those who are faithful to escape quickly when this desecration takes place.

The Great Tribulation -The Collapse Of The English-Speaking Nations

Before the glorious Second Coming of Christ to establish His Kingdom, watch for the decline and eventual conquest of the English -Speaking nations by their enemies – The great tribulation.

The Bible reveals that the worst, most indescribably terrifying time in the entire history of this planet is soon to occur. (Jeremiah 30:7). It will be such an awful time that the destruction and genocide of World War 2 will seem like a picnic in comparison.

The Pivotal Old Testament Prophecy

The pivotal scripture of understanding the end time prophecy is found in the Old Testament, in Leviticus 26. When we rightly understand our national identity this prophetic chapter takes on new, urgent meaning.

In Leviticus 26 and Deuteronomy 28 are powerful prophetic warning for us today, because God does not change. God promised that if we obey Him, He would set us ‘High above all nations of the earth” (Deuteronomy 28:1). However, if we do not obey His commandments. “ Cursed shall be in the city” (Deuteronomy 28:16). Are we cursed in our cities? Think about it. Millions of Americans are afraid to go out of their own homes. Elderly people and others all over this land are afraid to venture out at night in this “land of the free, and of the brave.” We are locked in our homes like prisoners,! No, we are not blessed in our towns and cities anymore.

Out disobedience will bring curses in our food supply, causes In sexual relations and curses in whatever policies or programs that we nationally attempt because we have turned way from our Great God.
