Signs Happening Now

In response to a question from a friend, today's blog will give some examples of things happening now that are signs of the end times.

You may expect me to start talking about the earthquake in Haiti, the floods all around the world, the droughts in the Caribbean. Or maybe you'd expect me to talk about corrupt government officials and all the political crap going on. Maybe about wars and rumors of wars. There are many things that you could take as signs of the times, but in reality those things have been going on forever.  I do think all these things are escalating, but to most people you can't prove that, so I won't try.

My main reasons for believing that we are living in the last days are biblical.
In 1948 Israel became a nation... after almost 2,000 years of being scattered around the globe. In the Bible it is prophesied that this would happen. Hebrew, a dead language, was revived again. Not only has that never happened in history with any dead language, but it was also prophesied in the Bible. In the last 20 years more Jews have become "Messianic Jews" (Jews that believe that Jesus is the Messiah) than in the last 2,000 years combined. THAT was also prophesied in the Bible. The United States is the only country standing with Israel these days, and if Obama has his way, that will not last long. As we move in to forcing them to divide the state of Israel, we will join the rest of the world in standing against them. In the Bible it says in the last days all nations will stand against Israel. Each one of these prophesies about Israel HAD to be in place before "The End" could happen.
Other prophesies that HAD to be in place are that the whole world would be able to see events happen right as they happen. Live TV and the internet make this possible. That has only been made possible in my lifetime. Kids of today may not understand the weight of that, but I do.
Europe has laid the ground work for a global currency, something that is also prophesied that will happen in the last days. As the dollar collapses that reality is closer and closer to home. With technology we now have the capabilities of  "marking" people. It hasn't happened yet, but it is prophesied that it will, and we have the technology to do it. That technology did not exist before very recently.
GMOs (Genetically Modified organisms) being put into our food supply since the mid 1990's, leading to cancer, obesity, sterility... will screw up our food supply if we don't stop the companies responsible. (mainly Monsanto) The US is one of the only nations embracing GMOs. How stupid are we? We not only are walking right into the trap of coming against Israel, but we are standing against our own bodies.
I'm not saying that I know for sure that the GMO crap will lead to the diseases or the famines mentioned in prophecy, but I wouldn't be surprised.
My other reasoning for believing that we are in the last days has to do with the upcoming eclipses I mentioned in another post. There will be the first tetrad of eclipses since 1967-1968 (around Israel's 6-day war) in 2014-2015. Every time there is a tetrad of eclipses over Israel falling on Feast days, something major happens. What major event is left to happen according to prophecy? 
The Bible says that the generation would not die before the Messiah came. Many scholars believe that this means the generation of 1948 when Israel became a nation. The seventy sevens of Daniel line up very nicely with the present days being significant.
The 'stars' and heavenly bodies set to be wacky around 2012 line up nicely with prophecy too.
If none of this convinces you, take heart, you may only have to wait a few more years to see some hard core evidence. I warn you though, another thing clearly prophesied is that the hearts of MOST would grow cold, and instead of turning to God in the day of disaster, they will curse God. For the final 3 1/2 years there will be plagues that far out-do the plagues Moses put on Egypt. Those plagues will only effect the non-believers. So if you get to midway through the tribulation and have still not accepted Christ, you probably never will, and you can count on all those plagues being on your head.

On that cheery note, I'll end... cause it's time to pick up my son from his half day of school. :-)

I agree with you 100%. So many people don't know what is going on. They have totally forgot that Jesus is the reason they even exist. I pray that people will become enlightened and learn of the Great Jesus Christ. All we can do is keep the Faith, never taking the "mark". Even if this means death. Your soul will live with Jesus in Heaven for eternity. Amen. Praise the Lord. If people would read The Book of Revelations, they would see that most has already happened and what is yet to come. I could go on and on. But I won't. I really enjoyed reading your blog. God Bless You.

Thanks you! Yes, the End Times are scary but what is even scarier is what is to come. Us Christians NEED to stand together and keep our heads held high. I wish I had the power to yell to all the world and tell them the truth, but, for one thing, I can't do it alone, and another, they would just laugh and think I was crazy. They would rather believe what is on the news stations. God is out there, even when it may not seem like it, but He will always be there if we just trust in Him. The lyrics of Chris Tomlin's song, "Our God," fit these troublesome times well. If you are not familiar with this song, you should listen it and let it lead your life. It is a truly powerful song and I love it. "If our God is with us, then what can stand against [us]!"

With everything happening right now in the Middle East, in Japan and everywhere else in the world, we need to stick together and hold the Christians in other parts of the world united.

Thank you for posting this!

Yes, I know the song. Every now and again when we sing it in church I tear up because it touches me so... the exact part that you mentioned "If our God is For us, who can stand against?"
I am sure that He is pounding that thought in our heads, for the time to come when that truth is hardly believable. SO many will be swayed in their faith. It is important to remember the "defeat" will be temporary. We will be the victors in the end!
