Posts Tagged ‘end times’


If you don’t understand Biblical History then you can’t understand Biblical Prophecy, because the past events told in the Bible actually reveal how future events will take place in the End Times.

Ecclesiastes 1 tells us this:

Ecclesiastes 1:9
What has been is what will be,
and what has been done is what will be done,
and there is nothing new under the sun.
10 Is there a thing of which it is said,
“See, this is new”?
It has been already in the ages before us.

With this is mind, Daniel 3 reveals much about the End Times anti-christ who will set himself up as “god” and demand to be worshiped (2 Thessalonians 2:4).

We see in Daniel 3 that a statue was made, which was to be worshiped by all peoples:

Daniel 3:1
King Nebuchadnezzar made an image of gold, sixty cubits high and six cubits wide

Notice the “sixes” in this verse?  This is symbolic of the number of the beast in the End Times, which is 666 (Revelation 13:18), and this statue in Daniel 3 is the foreshadow to the End Times statute which will be made for all the Earth’s inhabitants to worship (Revelation 13:12,13)

Daniel 3:3
So the satraps, prefects, governors, advisers, treasurers, judges, magistrates and all the other provincial officials assembled for the dedication of the image that King Nebuchadnezzar had set up, and they stood before it.

The then world’s governors joined in the spiritual act of worshiping this statute set up by King Nebuchadnezzar … government and religion joined at the hip … which is also a picture of the the One World Government and One World Religion of the End Time, being joined together (Revelation 13:7 & 12).

 Daniel 3:4
Then the herald loudly proclaimed, “Nations and peoples of every language, this is what you are commanded to do: 5As soon as you hear the sound of the horn, flute, zither, lyre, harp, pipe and all kinds of music, you must fall down and worship the image of gold that King Nebuchadnezzar has set up. 6Whoever does not fall down and worship will immediately be thrown into a blazing furnace. 7Therefore, as soon as they heard the sound of the horn, flute, zither, lyre, harp and all kinds of music, all the nations and peoples of every language fell down and worshiped the image of gold that King Nebuchadnezzar had set up.”

Even as all the people’s were commanded to worship Nebuchadnezzar’s statute in the days of Daniel, so all the people’s of the world will be commanded to bow and worship the statute of the anti-christ in the End Times (Revelation 13:15).

The Book of Daniel is teaching us that even as this great world power of Daniel’s time – Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon – was lord over the people’s of the earth, and commanded forced worship of the statute of the man in power at that time, so it shall be again in the End.

The ruler in the End … anti-christ … will demand worship from all the inhabitants of the Earth and will kill those who refuse!

Daniel 3:12
But there are some Jews whom you have set over the affairs of the province of Babylon—Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego—who pay no attention to you, Your Majesty. They neither serve your gods nor worship the image of gold you have set up.”

Sadly, just because one calls ones-self a Christian … or just because an organization calls itself a church … it does not mean that such a person … or organization … is a true follower of the Lord Jesus Christ.  And even as just a FEW Jews in Daniel’s time refused to bow down to worship Nebuchadnezzar’s image, so there will be only a few on the Earth in the End who will refuse to bow the knee to the anti-christ’s statue (Luke 18:8).  Yet, people who are afraid of persecution, people who are afraid of starving, or of being killed for believing and confessing that the Lord Jesus Christ alone is God, will ultimately pay with their lives in the very end … they will pay by suffering for eternity in the eternal Lake of Fire (Revelation 20:15).

Please dear reader, if you are not preparing your heart and mind TODAY for the End Time persecution which will happen in one of our tomorrow’s, then you probably will not be ready.

Study and obey the Bible TODAY, while we have many translations and the freedom to study and believe, and pray daily for God’s grace and power to over-come today’s temptations and lusts because when real persecution starts, the temptation to give in to the world’s demands will be greater than today’s temptations!

___

Remember that even as Jesus Christ, the True Lord and Savior of men, is currently preparing His Faithful Church for the End Times and for His Return, so the devil is also currently preparing his false whore church for anti-christ’s appearing!

So please get yourselves ready, Christians! Read your Bibles daily, pray and worship the Biblical Jesus Christ daily, and keep yourselves from sinful habits that want to weigh you down and make you unprepared for Christ’s Return!

Hebrews 10 says:

26 – For if we go on sinning willfully after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins,
27 – but a terrifying expectation of judgment and THE FURY OF A FIRE WHICH WILL CONSUME THE ADVERSARIES.
28 – Anyone who has set aside the Law of Moses dies without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses.
29 – How much severer punishment do you think he will deserve who has trampled under foot the Son of God, and has regarded as unclean the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified, and has insulted the Spirit of grace?
30 – For we know Him who said, “VENGEANCE IS MINE, I WILL REPAY.” And again, “THE LORD WILL JUDGE HIS PEOPLE.”
31 – It is a terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the living God. 

Fight for your freedom.
Don’t take on-going sin in your life lightly.
Take to fasting and prayer, in your fight for freedom, if need be.
Make freedom from on-going and persistent sin, your goal and desire.
Fear God and hate evil.

Christ was brutally punished and died so that you could be freed from the power of sin (Romans 6), so please do not treat Christ’s blood as ‘common’ (NLT) and insult God’s Spirit of grace.

How can we know when the THE END of this Age is actually upon us?
 
What will be the signs of THE END of this Age?

This question has been asked for generations and many in each generation, seeing what trouble and/or terrible injustices are taking place around them during their lives, have wondered if they were witnessing The End of The Age.

But Jesus made it clear what the Signs would be, the progression of the Signs, and even foretold that the Generation who witnesses all the Signs taking place would be THE Generation to witness The End.  All we have to do is look to the Bible to read what the Signs will be.

But many say to me, “Such signs have always been happening, throughout the many generations, so you can’t be sure THIS is The End of the Age“.

Yes, this is true, but have the Signs currently started happening in greater extremes?  Did the Signs ever in the past, start happening closer together, in closer time periods, and were any of the Signs that Jesus spoke of all happening at the exact same time?

Jesus said the Signs of The End would come as BIRTH PAINS (Matthew 24:8) and birth pains, as we know, start to come QUICKER together and they become more EXTREME or intense in their volume / pain.  Birth pains are very large, very painful, and come together most rapidly right before the “Child is revealed“.

And so today I post a video below.  This one video is a quick snapshot of the world’s natural disasters, or strange occurrences, which have occurred in the month of DECEMBER 2012 ONLY.   It shows how large and extreme the natural disasters are becoming upon the face of the Earth and how such large disasters are becoming more frequent.

Again, Jesus warned that natural disasters, and wars and revolutions, were the BEGINNING of the Birth Pains of the End of the Age.  And so we should heed His other warnings recorded in Matthew 24:

32“Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near.33Even so, when you see all these things, you know that it is near, right at the door. 34I tell you the truth, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened. 35Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.

Jesus is warning the World about all the events which WILL be happening right before His Return.   Read Matthew 24.  Study the other Passages which also tell of the Signs that will be taking place just before Christ’s Return.  Matthew 24:9 tells that PERSECUTION comes right after the initial Birth Pains take place … and the initial Birth Pains is seemingly what we are currently seeing take place all over the Earth.  So please, make sure your life is right with the Lord Jesus Christ and that you are not asleep, lukewarm, or backslidden.

Matthew 24 —

42“Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. 43But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. 44So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.

45“Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom the master has put in charge of the servants in his household to give them their food at the proper time? 46It will be good for that servant whose master finds him doing so when he returns. 47I tell you the truth, he will put him in charge of all his possessions. 48But suppose that servant is wicked and says to himself, ‘My master is staying away a long time,’ 49and he then begins to beat his fellow servants (1 John 3:15) and to eat and drink with drunkards50The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of. 51He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the hypocrites, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

So many refuse to believe that a Christian can wind up in Hell.  But really, what does Matthew 24:48-51 tell us?  It tells us that a lifestyle of living for self, hating and hurting the brethren, and eating and playing with drunkards will wind us up in Hell with the other hypocrites…”where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth“.

So please my dear brothers and sisters, whether you believe you can loose your salvation or not, will you at least see that the Signs of The End of This Age are upon us … they are here with great intensity and in greater frequency … and make sure you are living in a way that is pleasing to the Lord Jesus Christ?  So what if I am wrong and The End of This Age is still many hundreds of years away … YOUR END is more near today than it was yesterday.  So won’t you please make sure you are ready to meet the Lord?

1 John 3 —

But we know that when he appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. 3Everyone who has this hope in him purifies himself, just as he is pure.

2 Peter 3 —

10But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything in it will be laid bare.a11Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly lives 12as you look forward to the day of God and speed its coming.

May God bless all who read this post with the wisdom to prepare themselves for the Return of the Lord and for the Judgment Seat of Christ.   Amen.

As I was reading the Bible today, I looked up the meaning of dissipation.  I was shocked.  And convicted!!!  Here is where the word “dissipation” is found in the bible:

25“There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. 26Men will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken. 27At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.”
29He told them this parable: “Look at the fig tree and all the trees. 30When they sprout leaves, you can see for yourselves and know that summer is near. 31Even so, when you see these things happening, you know that the kingdom of God is near.
32“I tell you the truth, this generationb will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened.33Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.

34“Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with dissipation, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you unexpectedly like a trap.

35For it will come upon all those who live on the face of the whole earth. 36Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man.”

Dissipation means:

Squandering of money, energy, or resources

And/or

to spend or use wastefully or extravagantly; squander; deplete: to dissipate one’s talents; to dissipate a fortune on highliving.

And/or

indulging in or characterized by excessive devotion to pleasure 

Blinged out cars

Truly, I was shocked, because I never knew what “dissipation” meant and when I looked up the meaning I thought that characterizes the lifestyle of this entire generation to a “T”.   It is “spot on”.   This is EXACTLY how everyone … Church people and Unsaved … live today.

Brothers and Sisters, let us adjust our attitudes and lifestyles in accordance with the Word of God.  Let us:

let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us – Hebrews 12:1

Let us:

Be holy, because (God is) holy – 1 Peter 1:16

Let us ready ourselves NOW before Christ Returns so that we won’t SHRINK AWAY from Him in shame, when He comes for His spotless bride:

And now, little children, abide in him, so that when he appears we may have confidence and not shrink from him in shame at his coming – 1 John 2:28

JERUSALEM – Israel withdrew its troops from the Gaza Strip Saturday after some of the fiercest gunbattles with Palestinian militants in the Hamas-run territory since last year’s military offensive.

Israeli troops used bulldozers to “remove infrastructure used by terrorists to attack soldiers” before the early morning withdrawal, a military spokeswoman said.

Gaza militants, meanwhile, fired a rocket into southern Israel on Saturday, but no injuries were reported, the military said. Two others fell short of Israeli territory.

The violence began Friday when soldiers patrolling the border crossed into Gaza after spotting Palestinians planting explosives near the fence with Israel.

Two Israeli soldiers and two Palestinian militants were killed in the gunbattle, the military said. Palestinian medics said one civilian was killed and seven were wounded in the fighting. Militants reported one wounded and one missing.

Israel’s military held Gaza’s Islamic militant Hamas rulers responsible for the violence.

“We will not tolerate any attempt to harm the citizens of the state of Israel and we will continue to operate firmly against anyone who uses terror against it,” a military statement said.

The violence underscored some of the challenges the U.S. faces as it tries to get Israeli-Palestinian peace talks back on track.

Senior Israeli Cabinet ministers plan to meet Sunday to draw up a response to President Barack Obama’s demand for peace gestures toward the Palestinians, Israel’s Channel 10 TV reported. A government spokesman could not immediately confirm or deny the report.

The ministers began discussing the matter on Friday.

Washington has demanded the gestures to try to jump-start U.S.-brokered peace talks, which were derailed by Israeli plans to continue building in contested east Jerusalem. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahuwants to keep the entire holy city as Israel’s capital, while the Palestinians claim the eastern sector as the capital of a future state.

Elsewhere, Egyptian police said they arrested 45 suspected smugglers over the past three days in an intensified crackdown on the hundreds of cross-border tunnels that provide a supply line to Gaza. Among the suspects was a man accused of trying to deliver $242,000 in Egyptian pounds and U.S. dollars to Hamas in Gaza, police said.

Israel and Egypt sealed their borders with Gaza in 2007 after Hamas militants overran the coastal territory. Since then, Gaza has depended heavily on smuggled cash and goods.

Egypt is building an underground barrier along its border with Gaza to try to cut off the smuggling.

Zech 12:2 — New Living Translation (©2007)
I will make Jerusalem like an intoxicating drink that makes the nearby nations stagger when they send their armies to besiege Jerusalem and Judah.

Zech 12:1-5 (NIV)
1This is the word of the LORD concerning Israel. The LORD, who stretches out the heavens, who lays the foundation of the earth, and who forms the spirit of man within him, declares: 2“I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that sends all the surrounding peoples reeling. Judah will be besieged as well as Jerusalem. 3On that day, when all the nations of the earth are gathered against her, I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock for all the nations. All who try to move it will injure themselves. 4On that day I will strike every horse with panic and its rider with madness,” declares theLORD. “I will keep a watchful eye over the house of Judah, but I will blind all the horses of the nations. 5Then the leaders of Judah will say in their hearts, ‘The people of Jerusalem are strong, because the LORD Almighty is their God.’

The dividing of Jerusalem?

Is it predicted in the Bible?

Yes, the dividing of Jerusalem was prophesied by the prophet Joel,  at which time God warns that the dividing of Israel’s Land is the reason why God will be judging the nations:

Joel 3:1-2 —

1“In those days and at that time,  when I restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem,  2I will gather all nations  and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat.a There I will enter into judgment against them  concerning My inheritance, My people Israel,  for they scattered My people among the nations  and divided up My land.

God goes on to warn through  the prophet  Zechariah, that all who choose to “come against” Jerusalem will bring  woe   or “injury” upon themselves:

Zechariah 12: 1-5 —
1This is the word of the Lord concerning Israel. The Lord, who stretches out the heavens, who lays the foundation of the earth, and who forms the spirit of man within him, declares: 2“I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that sends all the surrounding peoples reeling. Judah will be besieged as well as Jerusalem. 3On that day, when all the nations of the earth are gathered against her, I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock for all the nations. All who try to move it will injure themselves. 4On that day I will strike every horse with panic and its rider with madness,” declares the Lord. “I will keep a watchful eye over the house of Judah, but I will blind all the horses of the nations. 5Then the leaders of Judah will say in their hearts, ‘The people of Jerusalem are strong, because the Lord Almighty is their God.’

The above Scripture verses, along with the latest EU statement that a dividing of Jerusalem is to be considered, are all signs that the End of This Age is  coming upon us.

As I have stated in other Posts, the End is not here yet but the Stage continues to be set!

Look up Church ….
And purify yourself for Christ’s return!
Our redemption is even closer today!

Haaretz Exclusive: EU draft document on division of Jerusalem

The current holder of the rotating European Union presidency, Sweden, has put together a draft document calling for the division of Jerusalem between Israel and a future Palestinian state and implying that the EU would recognize a unilateral Palestinian declaration of statehood.

Haaretz has obtained a copy of the document (below) that has sparked criticism by Israel, which claims that such a move would further harm the chances of renewing the Mideast peace process.

Revelation 3:18 —

14“To the angel of the church in Laodicea write:

These are the words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the ruler of God’s creation. 15I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! 16So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth. 17You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked. 18I counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire, so you can become rich; and white clothes to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness; and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see.

19Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest, and repent. 20Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me.

21To him who overcomes, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I overcame and sat down with my Father on his throne. 22He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”
