Let’s start the response by looking at where we are today. We will explore five perspectives to get a better understanding of upcoming events.
First from a Moral Perspective
America today, and also Europe, Australia, and even New Zealand are in a progressive state of moral decay. Bible commands on abortion, homosexuality, marriage, and others are being disregarded by governments and peoples everywhere. And it gets worse each year not better. The Bible actually prophetically describes these present conditions in 2 Timothy 3:1-5 and 4:3-4;
“…there will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, un holy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power… always learning but never able to acknowledge the truth…”
“For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.”
Today every one of these is being fulfilled. If you doubt it, just listen to the news.
Second from a Physical Perspective
The Nation of Israel has been restored. On May 14, 1948 it was recognized as an independent nation, a biblical miracle after 1878 years in dispersion. Now all the promises and words of prophecy regarding Israel can be fulfilled literally. Additionally, Israel and of course Jerusalem, is at the center of world problems with enemies surrounding it on all sides as predicted. Also Russia, Iran, Turkey, Libya, etc., are all in a position to fulfill the invasions of Israel foretold in Ezekiel chapters 37-39.
Third, from a Communication Perspective
The proliferation of smart phones and the 24/7 news cycle along with a host of other technologies, allows people in every nation throughout the entire world to see events as they occur. That provides one way of fulfilling Bible prophecy that all the world will see Jesus when He returns.
Fourth, from a Current Events Perspective
Technology and powerful forces in the financial sector are laying the groundwork for a single international financial system and a single economic system, just as predicted in the Bible 2000 years ago. The era of a cashless world is not far away. Curious? See what China just worked out with Turkey. Is this the technology that will be used during the reign of the Antichrist? Additionally, anti-semitism against Israel is growing daily fulfilling the prophecy that all nations will turn against her including even America once the Rapture has occurred.
Jerusalem is to become the world capital of all nations under the Antichrist . America recognizing it as Israel’s capital and moving our Embassy there is a real beginning. Watch as many nations will follow. Every nation will want to have an embassy in Jerusalem as it will surpass the influence of Washington D.C., Beijing, and Moscow combined.
The Bible has been exactly correct for 3000 years and there is no reason to believe the remaining prophecies will not occur exactly as stated. CAUTION IS REQUIRED however, as we cannot know the day or the hour of Christ’s return. SO DO NOT ATTEMPT TO PREDICT ONE. We are just to be aware of the times and BE PREPARED, as it could be at any moment. ARE YOU READY? DON’T BE LEFT BEHIND!
