The bible warns us of some very specific end time signs that will precede the coming of Jesus Christ back to earth.
Several years ago (over ten) when I started this blog, I was very hard pressed to find any signs of the times, that is, things happening in the world that are somehow related to end time bible prophecy. However, today and for the past few years, these signs are not only present daily, but they are also overwhelming in number!
I can’t keep up with all of the signs, and it is becoming very difficult to decide just what to post on and what not to, as they are all very important signs of the end times.
In the bible Jesus tells us that there will be famines, pestilence, wars, nation rising against nation, and earthquakes in various places. All of these things and many more are happening or in the process of being fulfilled today. He warns us of deception many times, and of men’s hearts growing cold because of abounding lawlessness, all happening today at record speed.
“And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. 6 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
9 “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. 10 And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. 11 Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. 12 And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.”
The apostle Paul warned us of perilous times, we are now living in perilous times my friends, however, I believe that we are only in the beginning stages of perilous times, they will get much worse, we really haven’t seen anything yet.
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!”
People today are just as Paul described above and getting worse by the day, lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power.
The apostle Paul also told us that just before the rapture of the church there would be a great apostasy, a falling away from the truth.
2 Thessalonians 2:1-4
“Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, 2 not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of Christ had come. 3 Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, 4 who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.”
Well, many in the church today are falling away from the truth! They believe that there are many ways to heaven, that the words of the bible are merely allegorical in nature, that Jesus will not really come back to earth and rule for one thousand years, and many other things which are unbiblical. They don’t believe in the power of God, nor do they really believe that Jesus performed many miracles while He walked the earth as both man and God.
Do the things happening in the world today really have anything to do with the coming of Jesus Christ? Are they really signs of the times?
Some examples of what I am referring to are the intentional destruction of our economy, our energy, our food supply, our society morals and values, our healthcare system, and our educational system, the increasing corruption and deception of government, big business, and big pharma. First off, we need to understand why these things are happening.
The bible tells us that there is coming a One World Government, Religion, and Currency, headed by a One World Ruler, the Antichrist. All of the examples that I gave above are all part of an agenda of the global elite to take control of the world and form a one world government, I’m not making this up! If you don’t believe me then read through the WEF’s website, read about the Great Reset and Agenda 2030. These people are setting the stage for the Antichrists rule and reign upon the earth, whether they actually know that they are doing it or not.
Pestilence is also increasing and a worldwide problem (i.e., Covid-19), whether or not they are man-made. Jesus never said that the increased pestilence would be by natural cause, just that it would increase.
Wars are increasing daily as are the threats of war, and the world has never before been faced with the threat of nuclear annihilation.
Nations are against nations, and races are against races. The Social Justice Movement and CRT are prime examples of the government pitting races against one another, all in the name of ending racism, when they are actually creating more racism and hatred!
Millions upon millions of people around the world are facing famine, and it’s only getting worse. Now, the global elite are doing everything that they can to ensure that not only millions of people, but billions of people face famine, all under the guise of saving the planet!
Earthquakes in various places are happening at increased rates, not just any old earthquakes, but very large and destructive earthquakes! Earthquakes have been happening for thousands of years, however, the number of deaths and disaster from large earthquakes is on the rise over the past few decades. Remember Fukushima in 2011? A magnitude 9.0 earthquake that killed over 18,000 people, left many homeless, and destroyed a nuclear powerplant, that to this very day continues to spew very dangerous radiation into the oceans. Or how about the more recent magnitude 7.8 earthquake that struck Turkey and Northern Syria? It killed tens of thousands of people and displaced thousands more! Or how many people remember the Indonesian earthquake in 2004, measuring in at magnitude 9.1? It killed hundreds of thousands of people and caused massive destruction!
The point is my friends that the signs of the times signifying the closeness of Christ’s return are imminent! In fact, there are so many signs today that it is virtually impossible to report on them all, it’s way too overwhelming! If you can’t see them then you must either be blind, ignorant, or simply don’t care.
And that’s another sign of the times, many if not most of these things are happening in great numbers and at record speeds on purpose, in order to overwhelm us so that we don’t have time to think about what is happening or what to do about it! That’s the idea and plan of the global elite, it’s part of their plan of attack, it’s the plan of the enemy, Satan himself!
Don’t be caught off guard, be aware of the signs that Jesus and His apostles warned us about, know the signs and be prepared.
There is only one way to be truly prepared, and that way is by repenting of your sins and accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior! You must be born again to see the kingdom of heaven!
Accept Jesus Christ now as your Lord and Savior!
God bless my friends! Marnatha! Looking up!!!
