The Second Coming of Christ
"And as he sat upon the Mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?" Matthew 24:3
Many of you sent emails after the recent horrendous weather events and world uproars asking if Revelation is happening now. You wanted to know the Signs of the Times. The answer is that yes the events predicted in the book of Revelation are happening now and have been for decades.
Revelation, Daniel and Isaiah all predict great and terrible events for these the last days. A terrible apostasy. A great restoration of the fullness of the gospel. The terrible commotion of all the elements. The great opportunity to preach the Gospel throughout the whole earth. Wars and rumors of wars spreading fear. And Christ promising peace in the hearts of his followers.
The Bible gives us specific prayers to pray and actions to take to help us through these times. These are at the end of this article.
The policy of the Bible Timeline site and the Question-of-the-week email is to present information using the actual words of the Bible but not the interpretation of it as that varies sect by sect. This is especially true when it comes to the interpretation of the revelations concerning the last days.
For example, the word "Rapture" is not used in the English Bible although it is in Greek. Each sect has different expectations of the "Rapture". Some expect it to be one event, others suggest two raptures and another defines it as ongoing. Many say this is an actual event of lifting of people to meet Christ, others say this is an ongoing spiritual event of those turning to Christ. Others do not use the word at all. For that reason, this issue gives a short one line description of each event in the order it is expected to occur. Many events are simultaneous and ongoing. Each line is followed by the scriptures where the revelations are found. All sects seem to be in agreement on this much. This is enough to know how to prepare for these calamitous events. For the interpretation of each event, please see your local minister or Christian author. The prayer for understanding is always answered.
WHERE ARE THE REVELATIONS FOUND?
The revelations concerning the last days are found throughout the Bible but primarily in the following books of the Bible: Isaiah Jeremiah Ezekiel Daniel Hosea Joel Amos Micah Nahum Zechariah Malachi Revelation chapters 4-20. Christ gives the best summary of these events and how to prepare for them. These are found in Matthew chapters 24-25, Mark chapter 13, Luke 12: 37-48, Luke 17: 20-37 and Luke 21: 5-38

HOW TO PREPARE
When Christ told of the signs of the times, he also gave three parables. Two of them are referred to in this section. The parable of the ten virgins. Matthew 25:1-13. The believers of Christ are likened to ten virgins. Five were wise and kept their lamps filled. Five were foolish. Like the wise and the foolish builders, this refers to faith. Five were strong in the faith, having a personal relationship with God and letting their lights shine forth. Five were foolish or hypocritical. They slumbered and let their lamps of faith go out. To endure to the end, we must practice our faith daily. This includes daily prayer and scripture study. Specific things to pray for: During these tumultuous times many of us will need to flee either due to war or natural disaster. Christ tells us specifically to pray that our flight will not be in winter. Mark 13:18 We are told that the time will be shortened, or else even the very elect might be deceived. Luke tells us to watch and pray that we enter not into temptation (Luke 22:40,46)
Pray to endure to the end (Luke 21:34-36)
We know that before the end times and tribulations are finished that the Gospel must be preached to all the earth. Therefore, we should pray that those countries that refuse to have Christian ministers preach in their borders will do so. Russia has opened her borders to Christian ministries and so will all of the nations eventually.
Prepare for the day of judgment. Christ says he will judge all of his followers during the first resurrection. These are they who called him Lord. He tells us in Matthew 25:31-36 how he will judge us. Verse 40 summarizes the criteria: "For as ye have done it unto the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me."
Always remember Christ's promises to us during these times: “Peace I give unto you. My peace I leave with you.”
Just as the early Christians were miraculously saved from the destruction of Jerusalem by paying attention to the signs, so can we be protected as we learn the signs and keep our spiritual houses in order. The Jewish people knew that the "abomination of desolation" prophesied by Daniel had already occurred in 170 BC. Christ told them to watch for the same signs we are to watch for and to flee to the mountains when they saw those signs. The early Christians fled to Pella, a nearby city, upon seeing the city was encompassed by soldiers under Gallus. Four years later came the fall of Jerusalem. Over a million citizens of Jersusalem were killed and 100,000 led away captive. The temple, as prophesied by Christ, was laid waste with not one stone left upon another. The Christians who fled were safe.

40 thoughts on “Signs of the Times of the Last Days”
God of Moses God of Abraham God of Israel come into the hearts of those who do your will and bless those who praise your name for thine is the Kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen
With all due respect, you don’t understand the scriptures. Isaiah, for example prophesied of Christ hundreds of years before His birth. The purpose of prophesy is not to satisfy man’s curiosity or to convince skeptics by fortune-telling.
There is a huge difference between “fortune telling ” and Biblically fulfilling prophetic utterances. Those who Don’t understand that need to find a Bible, go to the new testament and read 1 Corinthians 2: 9-12, then maybe you’ll understand why you Don’t!
Prophesy of future events (or how to understand Biblical Prophecy)
Prophets never speak hundreds of years in the future. Such prophesy has no value to those to whom the message is delivered. A prophesy only has value if the prediction can be proven to have come true, that is how that prophet can be tested to be a true prophet. Those hearing the prophecy and those who have tested the prophet (according to Scripture) as true, can then act upon the message of the prophet.
Testing of the prophets requires fulfillment of a prophecy within the life span of the prophet, or the life span of that current generation. A Biblical generation is within 40 +/- years of those hearing the message from the prophet.
For those of us that are living thousands of years after the prophets of Ancient Israel, spoke to the people, as YHWH instructed them, their mission has already been completed, and would have come to pass. The prophecy is “past tense” to us living today. In other words, all past prophecy spoken by a “true” prophet of YHWH, would have come to pass since the prophecy spoken was for “their” immediate future, not for ours.
Past fulfillment, conforms to what Scripture teaches. Understanding this truth will simplify much of what Scripture teaches, and eliminate unfounded conjecture about events that will never come to pass for those living today.
John (Yochannan) William
To a Mr John William.
You say in short that a prophecy must come shortly, as it were in the lifetime of the very prophet.
Is it not written? Jesus gave many prophecy of both His day on the earth of the resurrection, and yet of the future. Of the revered ‘End Times’, The Day of the Lord. Now while I argue that Jesus IS alive, and therefore his prophecy requirement you have listed is still fulfilled, consider His words in Luke 4:17-21 for it reads, “And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written, 18 The Spirit of the Lord /is/ upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, 19 To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. 20 And he closed the book, and he gave /it/ again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him. 21 And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.”
Do notice how he cut the passage short, because the rest of the prophecy concerning Him had not yet been fulfilled.
What say you?
The prophet Isaiah preached 740 years of the birth of Christ before its fulfillment.
Yes, the true Prophets of God can and DO speak hundreds of years (or MORE!) into the future! The birth of Jesus was prophesied almost a THOUSAND years beforehand by several of the Prophets of God! There are several prophesies in the Bible that were made many centuries before the prophesies came true, some of them even giving the exact day, month and year that those prophesies were to come true: the fall of the Roman Empire, the fall of Constantinople, the rise of the Papal Empire, among others. There are even prophesies in the Bible that were only realized in the 20th century, for example:
* 1948 – Israel will be re-established as a nation (Isaiah 11:11)
* British ships will be the first country to bring Jews to the new nation of Israel (Isaiah 60:9)
* The nation of Israel will be born in one day [realized by the League of Nations](Isaiah 66:8)
* Israel will be reestablished by a leader named David [David ben Gurion]
* The Star of David will be the center of the Israeli flag (Isaiah 11:10)
* Discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls (Isaiah 29:1-4)
* The fall of the Berlin Wall (Ezekiel 3:4-6)
* 1990 – Rescue of the Falasha Jews from death in Ethiopia [completed by Israel and the USA in their successful “Operation Solomon”, using American Hercules C-130 cargo planes, flying over the Red Sea] (Isaiah 18:1-7).
This prophecy is my favorite because my father took part in this mission. Reading Isaiah’s prophecy before this mission ever happened wouldnt have even made any sense in Isaiah’s lifetime. No one in Isaiah’s time would even have known what an airplane or who the USA was! But when the prophecy was fulfilled, the scripture is easily identifiable! The Hercules C-130 did indeed make a buzzing noise when flown. But, as many prophesies are, this one was a mystery until 1990.
The amazing thing about the Prophets of God is that God reveals very specific informaion to them, and the prophecies are very detailed – so much that one can identify the events in the prophecy very easily once it is fulfilled. And not one detail will be wrong!
So, you see, the prophecies do NOT have to be fulfilled within 40 years and within the Prophet’s life. God’s prophecies can be as far ino the future as He chooses! Some Prophets die naturally before God’s prophecy has a chance to come true, anyway!
There are only TWO criteria by which to identify a true Prophet: (1) the prophecy ALWAYS comes TRUE (Deuternomy 18:22). A true Prophet never has a batting average less than 100% – in other words, no “off days” and (2) a true Prophet will never prophesy or live outside of God’s laws/commandments, nor will the Prophet encourage one to worship other gods (Deuteronomy 13).
[Amos 9:14-15] Was fulfilled on May 14th 1948,Was Amos living on earth then?[Isaiah 30:25] was full filled Sept 11th 2001 was Isaiah living on earth then?[Jeremiah 31:15-16] was full filled when Jesus was just a baby [Matthew 2:13-18] was Jeremiah living on earth then?God Bless
Wow… Your understanding of prophecy is simplistic. The testing you speak of did not necessarily include every prophetic utterance. By your comment, intentional or otherwise, one might think you’re a preterist.
Are you really suggesting that all the prophecies which detailed the proofs of messiah had to have been fulfilled in the prophet’s lifetime? What about John’s prphecy in Revelation? Has that too already been fulfilled?
FYI. A generation = 70 years… Per the book of Psalms
The position of Prophets, (those CHOSEN by the Almighty Sovereign Creator) to speak “before” as in time (by predicting future events) or as in “place” (by speaking before others) came about at the Mountain called Horeb. The Israelites were there to receive the laws that where to govern their newly formed national identity of the “Ancient Scriptural Nation of Israel” but the people where afraid of hearing the voice (noise) of the Almighty speaking from the mountain.
Moses asked the Almighty and He agreed to provide prophets (before speakers) from their own brothers (Adamites, from the tribes of Israel) to be the mouth piece for YHWH, and they are to communicate the will of the Almighty Sovereign Creator Power to the Israelite people. Deut 18:17.
The requirements and the test for determining who a true prophet was, or who a false prophet was became very important. Unless the Israelites of the time, or us living today can determine if the prophet is speaking the will of the Almighty Sovereign, the listener could be listening to a false prophet who was leading his hearers down the wrong road.
Testing a prophet
According to the Hebrew Scriptures there some very specific tests that are required to determine if a prophet is an annointed one, one who was chosen to speaks the word given to him from the Almighty Sovereign Creator Power named YHWH. The following are Scriptural test for a true prophet of YHWH:
1. Deut. 13:1, a prophet provides signs and wonders…..BUT, even if his predictions become true, yet if he is leading the listeners to serve “powers” other than the Almighty Sovereign Creator who is named YHWH, That prophet must not be listened to, for YHWH is “proving” those that are listening to this prophet. Such false prophets were to be put to death.
2. Deut. 18:18, a prophet can only come from among his own people (his own Israelite brethren). Therefore he must be an Adamite by race (a white Caucasian) he must also be a “true” Israelite (one that keeps the Covenant). In other words, we are not to listen to a Chinese prophet or anyone from another race. A prophet must speak the only the words that YHWH commands him to speak.
3. Deut. 18:19, (the Israelites to whom the message by the prophet is delivered, are to hearken (listen to and take note) of the message that was addressed to them. They (the Israelites) are to act upon the message, or they will be held accountable to YHWH…… in other words, they will suffer the consequences for not listening, and not doing.
4. Deut. 18:20, Any prophet that pretends to be speaking using the name YHWH, something that was not commanded to him to speak, or who is speaking in the name of another power (a false God) would die.
5. Duet. 18:21, So how are the people to know if a prophet is speaking the truth?
6. Duet 18:22, provides the all important answer: When a prophet speaks in the name of YHWH of things pertaining to the future and the thing he speaks of does not happen, or the words are not fulfilled, then what he has spoken has NOT been spoken by YHWH. That prophet has spoken with presumption, and he is not to be feared or acknowledged.
The result of this is the fact, that everything that a prophet speaks pertaining to the listeners future, MUST come to pass during that prophets life span. Otherwise, the prophet cannot be tested as one commanded to be speaking for YHWH.
If we are to make the “assumption” that the author(s) of the book of Isaiah or that of other ancient prophets are to be believed, than all that is prophesied in the book of that Prophet must have come to pass in the life span of that prophet, not thousands of years in the future.
This is all so confusion. I pray that God will bring some clarity to this because if we listen to everyone’s interpretation, we will be going in all four directions searching for the truth. Have mercy on us God. Send someone who can be consistent in showing us the way. Your way only.
It’s very simple if you’re listening to a preacher preaching the word if what he says is not in the Bible it’s not God’s word if he takes anything out or puts anything in it’s not ripe therefore he is not a true believer of God And it tells you this in the Bible sorry I don’t know through the chapter on it but I have read it
@Joe There is indeed a church out there that follows strictly by the Holy Bible and only faithful members of this church will be saved on His (God’s) day of judgement. This church is called the Church of Christ. Anyone who sees this comment should probably check it out some time, please.
Dear Brother Joe,
The Bible is God’s word to us… those who wrote the books of the Bible were inspired by God the Father, and the Apostles( disciples of Christ before his crucifixion) wrote the things they saw and were told by Jesus, God’s own son… God in the flesh who came to us and dwelt among us so that we could know Him, His nature and Love. His truth, his justifiable rejection of sin. He provided a way we could receive grace and hope for a future with Him in paradise simply by accepting Jesus as our Savior …The Messiah…to turn from our wicked and sinful ways and repent. Take up our cross and follow Him. His words are clear and often told in the most simple and easy to understand parables. When we chose Jesus as our Savior we are filled with the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit guides us as we pray and love a life striving to follow Jesus’s teachings. So you see friend… the clear direction you desire is here, The Holy Spirit and God the Father who is infinite. And was here until he body of the son… both God and Man… sinless and sacrificial. The Trinity has covered all men and women and is just. God is good, he has never broken a promise and has kept all promises this far. Trust in Jesus… give your life over to Him and read your Bible, pray for understanding, pray without ceasing.. start reading the Book of John. John 3:16 tells you what you need to know to open the door to understanding as to what He offers you and how you can have peace. We will pray for your understanding and for God to pour his peace and calmness and understanding into your heart and mind!
God Bless you!
Rev and Mrs. Williamson
Was Zechariah alive or dead when Jesus Christ rode a donkey on Palm Sunday?
Prior to entering Jerusalem, Christ instructed his disciples to acquire for him a donkey (in Matthew’s Gospel a donkey and a colt).
Why did Jesus ride an ass?
The prophet Zechariah wrote: “Behold, your king comes to you, triumphant and victorious. He is humble and riding on an ass, on a colt the foal of an ass.” (Zech 9:9)
Author: Zechariah 1:1 identifies the author of the Book of Zechariah as the Prophet Zechariah.
Date of Writing: The Book of Zechariah was likely written in two primary segments, between 520 and 470 B.C.
So the begs the question, Are you accusing Christ of being a liar?
Check and Mate
Red Heifer – Sacrifice – Explanation..
if verse are their which shows us a real church insteblishered by Jesus,why so many churches today?
My question is if we are to trust in The Lord in faith til the very end should we be preparing for food or other things since there has been talks about economic collaspe or our currency crashing are we suppose to be prepared or be led by Holy Spirit I feel we are to be led by Holy Spirit if people are preparing for this isn’t it lack in faith that are lord won’t provide in this time of need I’m hoping we are raptured before all this 🙂 but would like another Christians thoughts thank you
We are not to listen to everyone else’s interpretation!! We are to study the bible in CONTEXT for ourselves! The Holy Spirit is our teacher and will lead us into all truth, like the following scriptures say:
“But when He, the Spirit of truth, is come, HE WILL GUIDE YOU INTO ALL TRUTH: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will show you things to come.
1 John 2:26-27
26 “These things have I written unto you concerning them that deceive you.
27 “But the anointing which you have received of Him abides in you, AND YOU NEED NOT THAT ANY MAN TEACH YOU: but as the same anointing teaches you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it has taught you, you shall abide in him.”
No, preparing is not a lack of faith. Did God build the ark for Noah? Did God store it with food? No! It was Noah and his family who built the ark and gathered all the food necessary, for themselves and for all of the animals! Noah and his family prepared as instructed and they placed their trust and faith in God to protect them during the flood.
I believe we should prepare as much as we can, but not to hoard it selfishly for ourselves only! We may be called upon to help others as well.
Our Faith in these last days should be like the story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego in Daniel. King Nebuchadnezzar built a huge golden image and commanded all the people to fall down and worship it whenever they heard the sound of his musical herald. Anyone who failed to bow and worship the image would be thrown into an immense, blazing furnace. The following scriptures is the young men’s reply of their Faith in God:
16 Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, answered and said to the king, O Nebuchadnezzar, we are not careful to answer thee in this matter.
17 If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king.
18 BUT IF NOT, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.
The end times/last days occurred in the 1st century just as Jesus promised in Scripture. See these verses: Matt.10:23, 16:27-28, 24:34, 25:31-34, Luke 21:7, 21:20-22. When reading Scripture, think “original audience relevance and remember you/we today are NOT the original audience to the Scriptures. The Bible is the story of God’s FULFILLED plan of reconciliation to mankind. The Bible is not a list of things to do. The Bible is a list of things that have already been done for mankind. ” Now the kingdom of God is with men.”~Rev.21:3
I’m sorry you’re so confused.
We wont be here for the tribulation. That is when Gods pours out his wrath on the unbelieving, God promised that he would KEEP US from the day of wrath. The church is gone(not mentioned at all) from rev 4 -19. God talks about Isreal and the earth dwellers but never talks about his church past rev 3 Its alright to have extra food and water because Gods tells us to in his word. He says that the glutton eats up everything and saves nothing for later. He tells us many times in scripture to save. Look in proverbs and refer to story of joseph with the seasons of famine. The people that say you dont have faith because you save are sadly misled. Since when was saving a bad thing? Did our grand parents save food for bad season in their cellars? Yes. We dont know exactly when the tribulation will start but it is very close. When you have the amount of sexual sin ie homosexual marriage, transgenders, etc….we are close. Look for Christ because he is coming in the clouds to take us out. It is called the blessed hope. Those who are looking for the antichrist have no hope. They dont understand how terrible those days will be.
here is the true chronological order of events, exactly the way that God arranged them in his word:
* You are Hear!
* The gathering of the church
The Wrath of God:
1st Seal – The revealing of the antichrist
2nd Seal – Peace taken from the earth so that men kill each other
3rd Seal – World-wide famine causing food to be high priced
4th Seal – One fourth of the earths population killed as a result of the previous seals
5th Seal – Martyrs under the alter in heaven
6Th Seal – Great earthquake, sun darkened, moon blood red, stars fall to the earth
7th Seal – Angels receive their trumpets, prayers of the saints go up before God
—- 1st Trumpet – A third of the earth and trees are burned up
—- 2nd Trumpet – A third of the creatures die, a third of the ships destroyed
—- 3rd Trumpet – A third of the fresh water contaminated, many people die from drinking
—- 4th Trumpet – Sun, moon and stars are darkened so that a third of the light is missing
—- 5th Trumpet – Demonic beings are released from the Abyss to torment the inhabitants
—- 6th Trumpet – A third of mankind is killed by the four angels and the army of 200 million
—- 7th Trumpet – Satan and his angels are thrown out of heaven and restricted to the earth
———- 1st Bowl – Painful, ugly sores break out on those who receive the mark of the beast
———- 2nd Bowl – The sea is turned into literal blood
———- 3rd Bowl – The rivers and fresh water are turned into literal blood
———- 4th Bowl – The sun scorches people with intense heat, searing them
———- 5th Bowl – The beasts kingdom is plunged into darkness
———- 6th Bowl – The Euphrates is dried up, demons gather for kings for Armageddon
———- 7th Bowl – Strongest earthquake ever, hail stones from 75 to 100 lbs. fall
* Jesus returns to the earth to end the age and establish His thousand year reign
* The beast and the false prophet are captured and thrown alive into the lake of fire
* Satan is seize and thrown into the Abyss during Christ thousand year reign
* The great tribulation saints are resurrected
* Millennial period
That is the correct chronological order of events
Satan has deceived multitudes of believers with this ‘rapture’ theory. It is not Scriptural. The Great Tribulation and GOD’s Wrath will be GOD’s judgment on His people who have been unfaithful so that they can become ‘purified’. Only the Church of Philadelphia will be taken to a safe place to escape GOD’s Judgment on His people and on the earth. Most believers today are found in the Laodicean Church, because of their lukewarmness they will be spitted out by Messiah. Hoe can they EVER believe that they will be raptured and escape GOD’s Judgment? Does that make any sense to anyone? Everyone can believe what they want to believe and MANY will be shocked when it all comes to pass. Let us seek the Kingdom of GOD and His Righteousness (STYOP SINNING) while we STILL can!
There are SEVERAL references to the Rapture in the Bible – some by Jesus, Himself, just read them:
I Corinthians 15:51-53
I Thessalonians 4:16-18
Shall I continue?……
Was Joseph trusting God while at the same time he prepared Egypt for the COMING famine by filling all the granaries? Of course He trusted God. The idea that something WILL occur in the future inherently holds in it common sense knowledge that a person WILL prepare for it. If you hear that a flood will occur where you live in 5 days, you don’t sit there saying O, God will provide a means for me to live through it so I’ll just sit here and do nothing. No. You thank God for alerting you as you get busy moving things in your home to higher floors, and prepare the means for you to evacuate until the flood is over. ALL of the “knowing in advance” and the “preparing for hard times ahead” ARE part of trusting God. HE alerts us; WE prepare for it.
THE BIBLE PROPHESY ABOUT THE LAST DAY IS REALY TRUTH.BECAUSE EVERY DAY I SEE THESE SIGN.JESUS IS COMING SOON
No argument needed. Just stay ready by submitting ourselves daily to the will of YHWH by the leading of the Holy Spirit.
Sorry forgot to compliment on a great factual article. Come quickly Lord Jesus. Amen.
the world is ripe for judgment
As sure as the prophecies fit the times of the prophet, it is uterly amazing, and miraculous that the soveriegn Lord God Almighty allowed for them to fit our time. Look around you, oh greatly decieved preturist. Where, might I ask, is the New Jerusalem, if not yet being built in heaven? Where are the masses in the burning lake? Where are the streets of gold? Why do I still morn my mother’s death? Why do I still cry? If this is heaven, I want a refund on life. Where is my Lord, the only light the city needs? Why is there still need for sun and moon? To what do you hope for, if not a righteous and just end for all this utter madness! To Christians who are confused, I offer this advice: Hold above all things great faith in your Lord. Read your bible, lock its words in your heart. In order to never pass away you must have its words in your heart, for it is written “heaven and earth will pass away, but my (Jesus’) words will last forever. Just know his love and accept his sacrifice, and you will be fine. The same man said “there will be wars and rumors of wars”. He said these things must happen, but dont be concerned. His work is complete, and you will be forgiven! Praise be to the savior Jesus Christ, crucified, risen, and coming again IN THE FLESH!
The horsemen are always riding somewhere. I am a atheist personally who happened to google book of revelations. Apple Pay credit cards mark of the beast. We are boiling our seas. I feel like the first trumpet is already being blown. People will wait for a dude with a beard to save them when the beast already runs rampant amoungst us. Greed, corruption, lies. False idols, pride, wrath, envy, vanity, war, bearing false witness against our brothers and on and on. What a world we have made 🙁 Look at Jerusalem and Bethlehem and Damascus. Look at who are the slaves today. The poor the downtrodden. These are Gods children. These are the righteous. Not the hypocritical lying rich corrupt men who increase the lies and the wicked. No love or tolerance or understanding. This is what Christ teaches. Not vengeance and hatred. End rant
Bible Dipper…..are you SURE you’re an Atheist???? Your words are about as true as it gets! Thanks for your input! I hope God reaches into hour heart one day and claims it, for you have a way of power in your words! God bless!
Amazing how a dozen repentant sinners who pray for understanding and guidance will read the same book and interpret it totally different. He who has ears….right! Prophecy is always vague. Wars and rumors of war? Always, had that. Earthquaakes? Always.
It seems like there is a lot of talk these days about the Lord coming back to Earth and I am curious to know what these signs are. I never knew that one of these is that Israel will be restored to a political state. This is something that is interesting to learn but I am curious to know what that for sure means so it might be smart to talk to my church leader about it.
The Bible didn’t state we never had these signs. But they will occur more frequently (as a woman’s labor pains grow more intense and closer together).
Corona virus, war on all land , natural disasters,oh how the labor pains are getting stronger and closer together just since this blog was made,our king Jesus Christ is def on his way and will return like a thief in the night,no man knows the day but we will know the seasons and now we can’t even tell the seasons apart hardly as predicted
I’ll tell you when… Christ… Yashua, not jesus. The true Messiah is Yashua, for he comes in his father’s name (YHWH) will return in 218 years. The year 6000 and HE will reign for 1000 years. Then New Jerusalem will land on earth. The Messiah will be KING of the whole world. God will abide and rule from Heaven and the Messiah will rule on earth in the Kingdom Come as the One and Only King of Kings. We are in the Hebrew year 5782. 2021 is how old the Messiah is. While we know what year he will return, we don’t know what month or hour…. no one knows.
The rapture will happen without a doubt. The rapture will happen much sooner than many believe (much less than 10 years according to all the environmental, weather signs , israel timelines, astronomical etc showings: luke 21:11 . It will happen without any warning , not one , in an instant , catching masses of people off guard just like God always does, ie the flood , sodom and gomorrah ~ a rude awakening .
Matt. 24:44 jesus said
Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not.

romans 10:9-10 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. rapture ready . com
Many of those that are left behind were seen in deep regret and many hung themselves on fences on interstates , and roadways and different places, their cars left by the roadside and many others also used their cars to kill them selves wrecking into things . It will be a horrible time , and regret will cause many to commit suicide .
NOW is the time, dont wait until its too late seek Please Christ Jesus NOW.
Those not going in the rapture and left behind , who rejected Christ Jesus’ Love, and those that are practicing sin will have a big nightmare when left after the rapture example woman dancing in topless bar practicing sin , will NOT go in the rapture when it happens abruptly , and many other examples of willfully practicing sin daily .matthew 25 :1-13 parable of the 10 virgins, 5 were wise 5 were foolish and payed a severe price . Acts 3:19 all unrepented sins19 Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord.
romans 10:9-10 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
Please seek Christ Jesus NOW with your heart, please repent change while theres still time left .

Just watching a video with an American guy saying he’s never seen his area so short of water; and a video report of flocks of birds falling from sky in Mexico.
However I’m in Est Yorkshire, UK, and farmers are just harvesting bumper crops of wheat and barley but having to irrigate their potatoes.
