Commentary By: Gordon King
It’s absolutely amazing at how time is changing so quickly! Things that were uncommon just a few short years ago are now not only common but normal, and things that used to be seen as good are now seen as evil, and things which were seen as evil are now seen as good, it seems to be happening so fast. Everything seems to be happening faster and faster, as if time is speeding up, and if you ask me I say that it actually is!
Have you noticed that the months and years seem to be just flying by? That one decade seems to be rolling right into the next as if just a year or two went by? I don’t believe for one minute that this is just our imagination, or that it’s because we are merely getting older, no, I believe that time is actually speeding up!
As the fulfillment of bible prophecy occurs time seems to speed up just a little bit, and as it continues to occur then time continues to speed up even more. It’s as a woman in labor pains, with each contraction the time before the next one is less than the one before it, just as Jesus told us in Matthew 24. The more bible prophecy we see happening and being fulfilled in the world the faster time goes, and the faster time goes the closer we get to both the rapture of the church and the beginning of the Tribulation period!
I believe that Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior told us that the speeding up of time would be a sign of the end times! He warned us of many things, but most people just haven’t seen the speeding up of time as a warning sign, but it most certainly is!
“All of these are the beginning of birth pains.”
The end time signs are like the beginning of birth pains, they will speed up as time goes on, the closer we get to birth! It’s happening my friends, it’s happening now!
The prophet Isaiah warned us of the speeding up of iniquity, and judgment to those who parade their sin around in front of God and to those who say to “speed it up”. Then notice he talks about judgment to those who call evil good and good evil! I honestly believe that this was talking about the sins of Israel at that time, but that it also has significance for the end times, the times that we are in now.
“Woe to those who draw iniquity with cords of vanity,
And sin as if with a cart rope;
19 That say, “Let Him make speed and hasten His work,
That we may see it;
And let the counsel of the Holy One of Israel draw near and come,
That we may know it.”
20 Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;
Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!“
The sins of this world have sped up my friends, they haven’t slowed down one bit but rather have sped up even more! And those who parade their sins around in front of God’s face are doing it more and more, and more frequently as time moves on, this is no coincidence but foretold to happen by Jesus Christ Himself, just as with birth pains! What is iniquity but rebellion against God Almighty, and we see it more and more each day, in your face, in God’s face rebellion with no qualms about it!
The prophet Daniel also warned us of these things.
“But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.”
This prophecy from Daniel was not understood by him at the time that he received it, but now we can see what it actually means. I believe that there are a few meanings, first that people will be running around the world traveling like we’ve never seen before. Second, people will also be unsure of just what they believe and will run to and fro from one belief to the next, never really knowing just what to believe, this includes the apostasy of the church. Third, knowledge shall increase, and we all know that with the advent of the internet knowledge is at our finger tips more than at any other time in history! I also believe that this knowledge includes worldly knowledge, scientific knowledge, but also knowledge from the Lord, biblical knowledge, prophetic knowledge will be understood, mysteries of God not before understood will be understood in the end times (by those who can see). But perhaps more importantly is that all of these things will increase in time and speed as we get closer to the end. If you stop to think about it, everything seems to be speeding up, transportation, knowledge, prophecy, all happening faster, all increasing in intensity and frequency, in fact exponentially!
Sin in this world has sped up in both frequency and intensity, as have earthquakes, natural disasters, wars, rumors of wars, and pestilence. Take a look at just how fast the Coronavirus entered the scene, and how fast it spread throughout the entire world!
Look at how fast the world came together with the same mindset on how to eradicate COVID-19, at how for the most part we all seem to get along regarding the virus and what to do about it. At how fast social distancing has become the norm, at how fast many grocery stores now make you stand in line to enter, at how fast the shelves have become bare, at how so many businesses have close down and so millions of Americans are now out of work! All of these things and many, many more happened just overnight. COVID-19 is one thing, but the disaster that could follow would be much, much worse my friends, much worse!
Not to go down a rabbit hole, but if these things happened so fast then what else could happen so fast? It sure wouldn’t take much for people to become lawless, they are already in fear and panic. What about the millions and millions of people who live paycheck to paycheck? How are they supposed to survive? And if they have kids to feed and shelter? I’ve witnessed the Rodney King riots in the early 1990s, I lived close to the epicenter at that time, and it really didn’t take much for masses of people to go completely crazy! Breaking into and looting stores, burning cars and buildings, attacking innocent people on the streets! What if people can no longer pay their rent, the homeless population is already at crisis levels, could you imagine how much worse it would be?!
Like I said before, I believe that this viral attack was preplanned, that it is a part of the globalist agenda to change the world, and what better way then to create mass fear, panic, and hysteria? Take away peoples ability to earn a paycheck, then have them rely on the government, then have the government stop supplying money and food, and you have complete and utter pandemonium and lawlessness (take a look at Venezuela)! Do you wonder why there has been a run on guns and ammunition lately? It’s because there are people out there that can see it coming!
If the globalists succeed at their plan then all bets are off for America coming back, then the world as we know it will never again be the same. They have already caused major damage even if they don’t succeed, if they succeed even partially with their plan then things will get very bad, if they succeed completely then what is coming our way won’t be good for anyone but the Global Elite! Remember the rumors just a few years ago that we heard about the FEMA camps and mass numbers of coffins? Well it’s not hard today to wonder just why they may need them now is it?! All of this has been in the planning for years now, years.
If things seem to be happening faster and faster it’s because they are! Time is speeding up my friends, things are happening faster and faster as we near the end. Jesus warned us of these things, we are living in perilous times!
2 Timothy 3:1-5
“But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!“
We are told that perilous times will come in the last days, and they are here now my friends. We have been warned throughout scripture what is coming upon this world, at how bad things will get, so we shouldn’t act surprised when they begin to happen. We must hold fast to the word of God, keep our faith in His promises to us and not fear what is coming upon this world! When we begin to see them happen look up for our redemption draws nigh! Amen.
All of the things that we see happening in this world today are signs my friends, signs of the closeness of Christ’s return for us, signs of the closeness of the beginning of the Tribulation period! Don’t allow the tribulations of this world to be your main focus, focus on Jesus Christ! We should be aware of what is happening and relate it to what the bible says, however, we shouldn’t make it our main focus, God should always be at the center of all things! Amen. The signs were given to us for a reason, to know just how close we are to being redeemed! And that my friends is something to rejoice in!
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
Reblogged this on God's Enduring Love and commented:
For years I’ve noticed that time has sped up. It is God’s doing. Jesus is Coming! Are you READY or will you be left behind?
Same feeling here, Gordon, time is speeding up and untenable events becoming rampant. Behaviors once taboo have become the “norm” for many.
What’s more, what is happening NOW is only a shadow of what’s to come after the Rapture of the Church!
I think the Left Behind books, which got many of us started on end times prophecy, actually painted it too soberly! No one 20+ years ago could have imagined things being as bad as they are today without the Rapture having already occurred!

I lived in Santa Monica during the LA riots (Rodney King; 1992).
I remember the rioting, burning, and looting.
People were just going crazy loading up shopping carts and taking whatever they could.
And destroying what they couldn’t.
The police were conspicuously absent except at road blocks to divert traffic away form the rioting. People were even shooting at firemen and medical personnel who were on the scene trying to help!
I perhaps had a different perspective as a young wife concerned for my husband, whose medical clinic was right off the freeway on La Brea.
It was scary.
But tame in comparison to what’s going on now and with regard to what’s to come!

I think too that folks have become desensitized to EVERYTHING that’s going on – it’s all just more grist for the mill. We’re all constantly being bombarded with doom and gloom, tales of rampant corruption, and conspiracy theories that we’re OVERWHELMED to the point of … meh!
We know our world is broken.
We know that there isn’t much if anything we can do about it.
(Speaking out is considered a HATE crime or racist.)
So, we just live our lives and hope for the best.
I think that’s the majority of the world.
Except it is not going to get better for the world.
Not until Christ returns, makes everything new, and sets up His Kingdom, and event then…
at the end of the Millennial Kingdom, folks will once again rebel.
* * * * *
It’s only believers who have a REAL hope.
More than hope; we have truth.
We know that what God said will happen,WILL happen.
We get to watch world events play out through the lens of end times prophecy.
(Whether we like the events or not, we still get to see them happen – that’s exciting!)
We get to know that God has a plan and that it will happen exactly the way the Bible says it would.
I’m so glad God’s plan includes taking Believers before the Tribulation begins!
Because as exciting as it is to watch events play out,
I’d prefer to be more an observer than a participant during Daniel’s 70th week!

Blessings, Gordon – good job!
You say what a lot of us are thinking and feeling and articulate it very well. Thank you.
Thanks for your comment Jeanette Tate-Sullivan!
Yes things in this world are getting bad, very ugly, and none of us know just how bad things will get before the rapture of the church, we just don’t know. But we do know that when we see these things happening with increased frequency and intensity then our redemption draws near! The LA Riots in 1992 were bad, but just a warm up as to how bad things will get in this world.
We must continue to keep our faith and hope in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
God bless! Maranatha!
