Commentary By: Gordon King
Are we taking notice of all of the signs around us? Do we really understand just what is about to happen?!
Over the past several years there have been some very strange and unusual things happening in and around the world, things which before were very uncommon, did not occur, or were rare! Things which cause a person to sit up and take notice, yet so many cannot really comprehend what is happening.
We are now witnessing one of the brightest moons in 69 years, a supermoon. This phenomenon does not occur frequently, at least not in our life time, of which 69 years is close to being a generation.
“And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring; 26 men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 27 Then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28 Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.“
I take this as a sign of the times, a sign of the nearness of Christ’s return!
Another thing which just happened is the miraculous election of Donald Trump as President of the United States. He beat overwhelming odds in the defeat of Hilary Clinton. Another thing to think about is that God will rapture His children at The Last Trump! Could God actually be giving us a sign by placing Donald Trump in the office of President of the United States? Mere coincidence? I not only believe that He could, I believe that He did!
1 Corinthians 15:51-52
“Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed— 52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.“
We have seen the uprising of ISIS, the infiltration of Islam into every society on earth, unprecedented wars and rumors of wars, earthquakes of biblical proportions around the globe, biblical storms, biblical droughts, biblical viruses. We have seen the degradation of society at large, and the institution of laws which are an abomination to God. Things of which if happened before this time would have caused most people’s hearts to stop beating!
In fact, God tells us that just before His return men will hearts will fail them from fear of what is coming upon the earth! (Luke 21:26)
We have seen so many strange and unusual events take place recently such as meteors hitting the earth, blood-red waters and rains, mass animal deaths without explanation, the ground opening up with massive sink holes and crevices, very loud and strange sounds in the air, the rise of new and deadly diseases and viruses.
Signs in the moon, in the stars, in the heavens above. Blood-red moons, supermoons, solar flares, meteor showers, the moon changing position, all of these things have happened and are happening!
“Then God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years;“
Take heed to the signs which are before us, God Himself told us that these things would happen just before His return to earth. And if we are just that close to the second coming of Christ, then how close must we be to the rapture of the church?!
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
