Open my eyes to see
the wonderful truths in your instructions.
I am only a foreigner in the land.
Don’t hide your commands from me!
Praise God, His Word clearly describes the signs of the times, and when our eyes are open, He reveals the wonderful truth found in His Word. We are foreigners and our eternal home is with Him! So, with those truths in mind, let’s tie a bow on our study of end time signs.
Believing they were living in the last days, Jesus’ disciples asked Him what would be the signs of the last days (Matthew 24:3). In a sense, the “last days” began after Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection. However, never in the history of the world have the key signs we have studied over the last few days been evident all at the same time.
Let’s review the signs we have discussed:
- The Re-birth of Israel – essential for the return of Christ.
- The Rise of the Revived Roman Empire – essential for the coming of the antichrist.
- Globalism on the Rise – essential for the coming of One World Government and One World Religion.
- Alignment of Northern Invaders – essential for the fulfillment of the Ezekiel 38-39 prophecy
- All Eyes on Jerusalem – prophesied to happen in end times.
- America’s Exit from the World Stage – provides insight into godlessness reigning supreme during the last days.
Israel was re-born as a nation in 1948…Jesus could not have returned before the Jews were back in their land as Scripture declares. The European nations are not only congealing into a single entity, but are quickly preparing for the antichrist. The world is focused more and more on issues (such as global warming) that will unite all nations together and will ultimately lead to “commonality” and One World Order and One World Religion. Everyone, whether spiritually inclined or not, seems to be focused on the Middle East. That focus will narrow more and more to simply Jerusalem as time goes on. Then, there is America…our beloved country! We will not stand forever and, while I pray we do not stumble into oblivion “on my watch,” the time will come when the Lord’s purpose for America will end.
It is critical that we prepare for the coming of our King, Jesus Christ!
Besides this you know the time, that the hour has come for you to wake from sleep. For salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed. The night is far gone; the day is at hand. So then let us cast off the works of darkness and put on the armor of light.
“Now when these things begin to take place, straighten up and raise your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.”
Are you ready?
