Increased Signs of the Times! Look up!

Mount Kilauea volcanic eruption June 2018, “U.S. Geological Survey”

Commentary By:  Gordon King

Volcanic activity has increased over the past few months, bringing with it destruction, death, and an uneasy feeling for many people living in the world today.  It makes a person think twice about just what on earth is going on?!

Earthquakes also continue to increase, as well as famines, pestilences, hurricanes, floods, and fires.  We have been warned that we will see famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places in Matthew 24, but I believe that this was a mere mention of what will happen just before the return of Christ, that there will be many more disasters occurring which are not mentioned in Matthew 24!  Just because these other events are not mentioned in scripture does not mean that they are not a sign of the end times scenario, I believe that they are.

Luke 21:10-11

Then He said to them, “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. 11 And there will be great earthquakes in various places, and famines and pestilences; and there will be fearful sights and great signs from heaven.” ‘

Luke, the author of the gospel of Luke and the book of Acts, added “and there will be fearful sights and great signs from heaven.”

All of these other natural disasters could be included as being fearful sights.  Not only that but he tells us that there will be great signs from heaven.  Have we not already seen many great signs from heaven?  Blood-red moons, meteors falling to earth, massive solar flares, blood-red rains, solar eclipses, etc., these could also be categorized as fearful sights and great signs from heaven.

When we take a close look around us we see an increase in evil in the world, a sense of the world moving down a very dark path.  What seemed to be good in the world not too long ago is now being seen by the world as evil, and what used to be evil in the world is now being seen by the world as good!  This is a sign that evil spirits are infiltrating the world, that they are increasing their powers upon the world, and that demonic activity is in fact increasing in the world.

Luke 21:25-28

“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.”

Signs in the sun, the moon, and the stars, we have seen this already, on earth the distress of nations with perplexity, this is only intensifying!  The sea and the waves roaring, hurricanes, Tsunamis, floods, it’s all happening, they are all increasing!  Men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of the things coming upon the earth, say it isn’t so.  Then, afterwards they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud, this hasn’t happened yet, but it will soon after all of these other things take place!  When you see them begin to happen look up for your redemption draws near!

I am not going to argue whether or not Luke 21:25-28 is speaking about during the Tribulation period or before that time, because it really doesn’t matter, and in fact I believe that it is speaking about the last of the last days, the time we are now living in.  I also believe that many of the things that will take place during the Tribulation period will begin before the Tribulation period, that we will see a foreshadowing of these events, however they will all intensify after the Tribulation period does begin!

The point is do we now see these things beginning to happen?  And if we do then shouldn’t we be looking up for our redemption?

Luke 21:36

Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.”

We are told to watch and pray that we may be counted worthy to escape all of these things which will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.  Scripture tells us that we will escape these things if we are counted worthy, so just how are we counted worthy?  There is but one way, by being born-again!  It’s the absolute only way, the one way!  But it not only says that we shall escape but will stand before the Son of Man, before Jesus Christ!  So if we escape these things and will stand before the Son of Man, then we will not be here but with Christ!

We are not destined for God’s wrath.  The Tribulation period is the time of God’s wrath poured our upon the world, not a time for His children.

1 Thessalonians 5:9-10

For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, 10 who died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him. 11 Therefore comfort each other and edify one another, just as you also are doing.

I haven’t even mentioned the great sign of deception, of false prophets and false teachers, of false Christs, of doctrines of demons.  Nor did I mention apostasy, the twisting of the word of God, deception in the church, the falling away from the truth!  These things are rampant in the world today and only getting worse!

Many believers feel that there will be a great revival before the rapture of the church, and before the beginning of the Tribulation period.  It would be nice if it happened, but I just don’t see it happening my friends!  I see evil intensifying, I see the church being deceived, and I see many falling away.  I don’t see a great revival at this time, at least not until after the church has been raptured!  Perhaps this will awaken those who have heard the truth but have not believed.  We can hope, we can pray, but it will not happen if it is not God’s will.  I am not saying that it absolutely will not happen, but I don’t see it happening.  I do see many who are strong in the Lord becoming stronger and more faithful, but I also many who are weak becoming weaker, many of whom will be deceived and led astray.

See it or not, believe it or not, we are living in the last of the last days my friends, the time before the Second coming of Christ on earth, the time just before the beginning of the Tribulation period!  The time just before the rapture of the church!

Look around you, take a look at the world, see the signs, relate the signs to God’s word and what He says will happen in the end.  What is God telling you?  Repent and seek the Lord, for redemption draws near!

God bless my friends!  Maranatha!

  1. Hi Gordon. I don’t know if you’ve already heard about Obama dressed as Satan at private satanic ritual and recently Fox News named Obama is a Messiah in caption. I’m not kidding you. I’m sick of hearing about Obama. Can’t he go away like other ex Presidents do? Look up Google.

  2. Thanks for sharing Jim!

    That is crazy! I’ve wondered before in the past if Obama just may be the Antichrist, if nothing else he is antiChrist! And isn’t it funny that these articles say that this supposed photo of Obama is at an Illuminati party?! “A disturbing image of former president Barack Obama dressed as Satan while attending an “Illuminati party” organized by international elites has gone viral on the internet.” And regarding Fox News as naming Obama as a Messiah, Jesus warned us that their would be false Christs, this is just one example! Jamie Fox also announced to the world on his television program several years ago that Obama was the Messiah! Tell me we are not living in the last of the last days?!

    God bless! Maranatha!

  3. We are sure living in the last days. I remember in 2008 I’ve warned many friends and my relatives do not deceived by unknown man, Obama. They thought he would helped this nation and ended racial problem, etc. I told them that don’t be a fool. He was a good slick talker and deceiving Americans. I was right!!!!! I never, never, never thought our President in my life the media treated him like a Messiah. I was sicken by it.

    Still to this day we all don’t know where he was born, where was his social security number, his school and college transcripts. I do believe he was born at Kenya. I do believe he is not a American citizenship.

    Conspiracy theories believe Obama is a homosexual and his wife is actually a man, his real name is Michael. And Conspiracy theories also believe 2 daughters are not their blood children. 2 daughters were from Morocco, some where in Africa?? Where was Michelle shown of her pregnant in the photos? Too many unanswered about Obama and so called Michael. Obama is still a mystery man.

    Did you know when Obama won in 2008 election, in Chicago lottery number winner were 666? Obama was a Chicago senator. Coincidence????

    I don’t believe he is an Antichrist. But I do believe he is evil son of @##$%!

    I know, no question Obama will meeting with Antichrist in the future.

  4. Daniel 11:37 King James Version (KJV)
    37 Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all.

    What does nor the desire of women mean do you think?

    Maranatha!

  5. Thanks for your comment Christine!

    I have always thought that it meant the Antichrist is not attracted to women but to men. Perhaps this means that he is a homosexual? I am not certain, however, I do believe that it means he is not sexually attracted to women for one reason or another. We know that he is anti-Christ, he is the Antichrist, so then he would be everything that God is not, which would then mean that he is opposed to what God has ordained as righteous and pure including marriage between a man and a woman, between men and women being attracted to one another. And don’t we see this same spirit in the world today? A drastic rise in homosexuality, in perverse sexual sins, in debased and reprobate minds. The world is being setup to accept such a man as this as their ruler, their king!

    God bless! Maranatha!
