More signs of the times in current events! It seems to be a never-ending occurrence these days to read the news and realize it simply confirms what the prophets spoke over 2,500 years ago, and what the book of Revelation predicts will characterize the last days.
Here are a couple of examples:
Well, never has Israel lived more securely, and only recently did the Jewish nation have any spoil to plunder! Furthermore, those northern invaders are identified as modern-day Russia, Iran and Turkey (the “Big 3”). Those leaders will meet February 14…and I don’t think it is to share a box of chocolates!
But Bible prophecy from Revelation (and elsewhere) is coming alive in today’s news as well. Back in 2015, Pope Francis said:
An agenda known as One World Religion has been advanced over time, but never more so than over the past few years. Revelation 17 and 18 describe the rise of Mystery Babylon…the coming One World Religion and One World Government. Together, some refer to Mystery Babylon as One World Order (even in the secular world).
Well, guess where the Pope is right now (as of 2/3/2019)!
The Pope is in the Arabian Peninsula for the first time…to promote religious affairs. In other words, tolerance of all religions, and the idea that we are all the children of the same god, just with different names.
Jesus said, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.” (John 14:6)
There is only one God, and only one way to get to Him! False religion is rising, not only in the Middle East, but around the world.
Signs of the times…current events confirming what God’s Word tells us! Heed the signs…and look to Jesus!
