Commentary By: Gordon King
It amazes me at just how fast things are moving towards the return of Jesus Christ! Bible prophecy is being fulfilled at a speed which surpasses all understanding and the truth of scripture is being revealed.
The Pope is now working on an interfaith program with the Hebrew University of Jerusalem under the guise of promoting peace and progress, towards building a better world.
And if we know anything about the Pope, then we also know that he had an interfaith worship service at the Vatican, all praying together supposedly to the same god. Apparently the Pope believes that we all worship the same god and that there are many ways to heaven! This my friends is bible prophecy in the making.
Does any of this ring a bell? During the Tribulation Period there will be a One World Religion headed up by the False Prophet. This False Prophet will form a new religion by melding all religions together into one, all worshiping and giving their alliance to the same god, one god, the god of this world, Satan!
We also see tensions rising in the Middle East with Iran, the largest nation-state supporting and promoting worldwide terrorism. The threat of Iran attacking her neighbors with nuclear weapons is growing each and every day, while most of the world sits quietly by, as if this were merely a dream!
The world now sits waiting for President Trump makes a decision to move the American Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, while the Islamic world threatens increased violence and death if this actually happens.
Lawlessness abounds in the world as people become more and more unrighteous and unholy, committing acts of evil and violence, desecrating what is holy, and supporting what is ungodly. One of the signs of the end times will be the increase in lawlessness!
Deception in the world is also on the rise as billions of people are led to believe that the Jews are not God’s chosen people, that they have not been given the land of Israel forever, and that there are many paths which lead to heaven. When in fact just the opposite is true, and Jesus Christ is the one and only path which leads to heaven!
And just as scripture told us would happen in the end times people are saying “Where is His coming, from days gone by people are eating, drinking, and marrying just as they have for thousands of years and Christ has not yet come!”.
2 Peter 3:3-4
‘ knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, 4 and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.” ‘
Doesn’t this sound a little familiar? Christ told us that these days would be like the days of Noah before the Great Flood!
“And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man: 27 They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. 28 Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot: They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; 29 but on the day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. 30 Even so will it be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed.”
You see my friends these days, the days just before the return of Christ, people will be living just as they have for thousands of years. And even though man has become more wicked and evil they will not see it as such. Society has become more lustful, prideful, arrogant, sinful, and unholy! However, the world cannot see it. The world has been desensitized to the sin, it has become a normal part of life! The eyes of the wicked cannot see the sin in the world but rather view it as normal, as just another part of life itself, when in fact it has become much more wicked and evil. The spirit of anti-Christ has grown in proportion to the sin in the world, and the wicked have become more anti-Christ as well saying that Jesus Christ is not God, that He is not coming, and that He is not the way to heaven!
Do not fall into the trap of the world, do not be led to believe that all is well and that the sin in the world is normal, that it is just another part of life itself! These are lies from the evil one, lies disguised to lead us off of the path which leads to righteousness.
All of the things which I have spoken of are signs of the soon return of Jesus Christ! They are all signs that the end is near and that the Tribulation Period is close to starting. None of this could have happened until the nation of Israel was reborn first! Do we understand this?! Israel must first exist for these things to take place, before the Tribulation Period could begin. Then the Antichrist will be revealed, the man of perdition, confirming a covenant with the Jews, sitting in the Holy of Holies proclaiming to be God, leading the armies of the world in a battle against Jesus Christ!
The time is at hand, the return of Jesus Christ is near, even at the door! Do not be fooled, do not be led astray, for the ways of the world and the wicked one are against you.
Believe in Jesus Christ as God, repent of your sins, follow the light not the darkness! Jesus is coming soon to judge the world, whose side are you on?!
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
