SIGN # 1 -- JERUSALEM ... Centre of Coming World Conflict​​​

The Holy City ,  Jerusalem ,  historically is the home of 3 global religions ( Christianity ,  Judaism & Islam ).  No other city in the world has caused so much controversy & bloodshed. For over 2,000 years , the Bible has " fore-told " it would become the center of world wide contention.  In 1967 Israel re-claimed its ancient capital Jerusalem ( after nearly 2,000 years ).  In the 52 years since , the Palestinians have waged an often violent struggle to arrest control of Jerusalem. The fight for Jerusalem in the past decade has escalated , culminating in Sept'2011 with the Palestinian bid for statehood before the United Nations , setting the scene for the  final dramatic conflict  before Christ's return.

 

Zechariah 12v2-9

Behold ,  I will make    JERUSALEM  a  ' cup of trembling '  unto all the people  round about , when they shall be in the siege ​both against  Judah  &  against Jerusalem.  In that day  will I make   JERUSALEM  a  ' burdensome stone '   for all people  :  all that burden themselves with  IT  shall be cut in pieces ,  though  all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.  And it shall it come to pass  in that day ,  that  I  will  seek to destroy  ALL the nations  that come against  JERUSALEM  

SIGN # 2 -- DISTRESS OF NATIONS

Turmoil is spreading around the world.  With the USA , China  &  multiple European economies in debt crises ,  global stock markets reeling ,  global food shortages  &  skyrocketing prices ,  climate  &  energy crises  around the globe ,  mass protests & uprisings  world-wide  ,  political & corporate corruption rife ,  inequality & injustice everywhere  &  NO solutions to these burgeoning dilemmas  -  mankind's overwhelming problems threaten to bring the total collapse of the global community.  These ' exact conditions ' have long been predicted in God's Word the Bible &  herald the imminent return of the Lord Jesus Christ from heaven.

 

Luke 21v25-27

There shall be ' SIGNS ' in the sun  & in the moon & in the stars  & upon the earth  DISTRESS OF NATIONS  with PERPLEXITY  the sea  &  the waves roaring.  Men's hearts failing them FOR FEAR  &  for looking after those things which ARE COMING on the earth for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.  And  THEN  shall they see  the Son of man  coming in a cloud with power  &  great glory

SIGN # 3 -- IMMORALITY ~ VIOLENCE ~ UNGODLINESS

Human civilization is in steep decline.  The corrosive effects of  ' unrestricted immorality '  in recent years  is  evidenced by  self-indulgence ,  materialism ,  dishonesty ,  greed  , sensuality ,  sexual promiscuity , alcoholism , drug abuse  &  violence in every level of society.  Throughout the world ,  society is breaking down under the morass of human dysfunction.  This  deterioration of social values  has been seen in the global move to legalise homosexuality  &  same-sex marriages - described in God's Word , the Bible as " an abomination ". 

 

This descent into an abyss of immorality & violence by mankind ,  is the ' direct result ' of  society's denial of God's existence  &  the abandonment of His Laws  &  Commandments.  It is this immorality  &  godlessness which will  precipitate  God's judgments on mankind as foretold in the Scriptures.

 

2 Timothy 3v1-4

In  ' THE LAST DAYS '  perilous times shall come ... For men shall be ' lovers of their own selves ' ,  covetous ,  boasters ,  proud ,  blasphemers ,  disobedient to parents ,  unthankful ,  unholy ,  without natural affection ,  trucebreakers ,  false accusers ,  incontinent ,  fierce ,  despisers of those that are good ,  traitors ,  heady ,  highminded ,  ' lovers of pleasures '  more than  lovers of God.

SIGN # 4 -- MIDDLE EAST REVOLUTIONARY TURMOIL

2011 saw unparalleled historic events - most notably the massive political  &  social upheaval in the Middle East.  With the ' Arab Spring ' rattling through more than 14 separate nations in the Arab World ,  overthrowing longstanding governments  &  dictatorships  ( Tunisia , Egypt , Libya )  &  throwing others into chaotic civil wars ( Syria , Yemen )  it has created a  maelstrom of political dynamics  transforming this already volatile region into a tinder-box of instability   &  strategic uncertainty.  In 2013 ,  the continuing emergence of brutal terrorists groups such as  Al Qaeda , Al Nusra , ISIS , Ansar Al-Islam  has  further escalated the violence , bloodshed &  suffering in this troubled region.   These events are the  prelude  to the final global conflict , long prophesied in the Bible  &  centered around God's people , the tiny nation of Israel.

SIGN # 5 -- RISE OF RUSSIA & VLADIMIR PUTIN

With the iron-fisted  Vladimir Putin  reclaiming Russia's Presidency in 2012  &  a mandate of ' supreme power ' of Russia until 2024 - a resurgent Russian economy , rapid growth & advancement of Russia's military machine has emboldened Mr Putin , who continues to re-shape the international political landscape with his aggressive foreign policy , often challenging & defying US , European & United Nations initiatives - particularly in the Middle East - by supporting pariah states Iran , Syria , Lebanon & the Palestinians.   Mr Putin has signaled his quest for ' world dominance ' by his plan​ to create a ' Eurasian ' axis of powers ( extending from Portugal to China ) to rival the US & European alliances.  Russia's stealthy acquisition & control of energy pipelines provides a formidable stranglehold over most European nations  &  is key to Russia's strategic plans & consistent with her  increased involvement in the Middle East  as she ' eyes ' huge energy reserves discovered recently near Israel

 

Daniel 8 v 23-25

In the  LATTER TIME  of their [ man's ] kingdom ,  when the transgressors [ sinners ] are come to the full ,  A KING  of  '  fierce ' countenance  &  understanding dark sentences , shall stand up.  And  his power shall be mighty , but not by his own power  & he  shall destroy wonderfully  &  shall prosper  &  practise  &  shall destroy  ' the mighty '  [ USA ? ]  &  ' the holy people ' [ ISRAEL ]  Through  his policy also  he  shall cause craft to prosper in his hand  he  shall magnify himself  in his heart   &  ' BY PEACE '  shall destroy manyhe  shall also stand up against  the Prince of princes [ Christ ]  but he shall be broken  without hand

SIGN # 6 -- EUROPEAN UNION

Since its formal creation on 1st December 2009 ,  the European Union has had a short ,  turbulent history as European leaders have struggled to merge their national economies together as a ' United States of Europe '.  Over the past 4 years , the EU's development has been severely jeopardized by a string of spiraling economic debt crises that have ravaged many EU nations ( Greece , Spain , Portugal , Italy , Ireland )  &  driven strong EU nations to their knees.  In a desperate effort to save the EU  &  its stricken Euro-zone currency , EU policy makers are aggressively pushing for a rapid acceleration towards a single centralized EU government  -  usurping power from individual states.  As the European financial crisis deepens , resistant states are being  ' forced to comply '  to survive.  Recent moves to create a central EU " military " force have also alarmed some sovereign member states  &  regional nations  raising the specter of a new emergent regional threat.

 

Revelation 17 v 11-14

 THE BEAST  [ Euro Union ]  that  was  &  is not ,  even he is the eighth  &  is of the seven  &  goeth into perdition.  And  THE TEN HORNS  which thou sawest are  TEN KINGS ,  which have received no kingdom as yet ;  but ​receive ' power ' as kings  one hour  with  THE BEAST [ Euro Union ].   These have  one mind &  shall  give their power & strength  unto  THE BEAST [ Euro Union ].   These shall make war with THE LAMB  [ Lord Jesus Christ ]  THE LAMB  shall overcome them :   for  He  [ Lord Jesus Christ ]  is  Lord of lords  &  King of kings :   &  they [ Believers ]  that are with Him are called  &  chosen  &  faithful 

SIGN # 7 -- ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION . . . ​in​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ The Holy Place

In a dramatic fulfilment of Bible Prophecy ,  the ' individual ' clearly referred to in the Bible records of  Daniel , Matthew  Mark  as the  " Abomination of Desolation " the Catholic Pope ,  ​on the  12th May 2009   made the  ' FIRST EVER ' Papal visit  INTO ' THE HOLY PLACE '  in  Jerusalem.  No Roman Catholic Pope in history had EVER  ' STOOD INSIDE '  the HOLY PLACE  until  Pope Benedict's historic visit to the site in  May 2009 when he actually entered  into  the revered building.  The purpose of this prophecy  ( given by Jesus Christ himself )  was to provide a  ' clear signpost '  to the faithful believers ,  of the  imminency  of the time of Great Tribulation to come ,  just before the return of the Lord Jesus Christ from heaven.   With the unmistakable fulfillment of this prophecy  &  we now await the culmination of the ' Time of Trouble ' we now see escalating around the world.

 

Matthew 24 v 15-21

When YE  therefore  shall see the  ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION  [ Catholic Pope ]  spoken of  by Daniel the prophet ,  ' STAND IN '  The Holy Place ,( whoso readeth , let him understand  : )   Then let them which be in Judea flee into the mountains :  Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house :   Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes ... For  '  THEN '  shall be  GREAT TRIBULATION   such as was  NOT  since the  beginning  of the world  to this time ,  nonor ever shall be.

SIGN # 8 -- ' FALSE CHRISTS , PROPHETS & RELIGIONS '

While man's advances in technology & communications , have in recent years enabled a world-wide awareness of the Bible ,  it has also resulted in an explosion of divergent  &  at times ,  extreme array of faiths & religions  -  extending  from  ' the fundamental '  to  ' the fraudulent '.   Recent years have seen an unprecedented number of religions , sects  &  cults around the world , many even claiming to be the manifestation of the Lord Jesus Christ. Invariably these fraudulent scams masquerade in the name of religion to exploit their followers & in many instances have ended in heartbreak & tragedy.  God's Word  fore-told  this would be a ' clear signal ' of the nearness of the ' true Christ ' from heaven

 

Mark 13 v 22-26

For  FALSE CHRISTS  FALSE PROPHETS  s​hall  rise  &  shall   shew signs  &  wonders  , to seduce ,  if it were possible ,  even the elect .  But take ye heed :  behold ,  I have fore-told you all things.  But in those days  ' after '  that  TRIBULATION ,  the sun shall be darkened  &  the moon shall not give her light , And the stars of heaven shall fall  &   the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken.  And  THEN  shall they see  THE SON OF MAN  coming  in the clouds with great power  &  glory

SIGN # 9 -- NATURAL DISASTERS

2011 to 2013  have been ' Years of Natural Disasters ' almost  unparalleled in human history.  With the three-fold disaster in Japan ( earthquake - tsunami - nuclear ) being the epicenter of this incredible period of cataclysmic events around the globe. The frequency of earthquakes has risen dramatically in recent years ,  while many nations have in the last 2 years suffered their  worst ever natural disasters  ( Australia - Floods / Brazil - Flood-Mudslides / NZ - Earthquakes / Thailand - Floods / Philippines - Typhoon ). USA above all has experienced the ' most bizarre ' series of catastrophic disasters through 2011-2013 including its ' worst ever ' Tornado season in 2011 , historic flooding in many states , unprecedented earthquakes , huge wildfires , record heatwaves , severe droughts , epic blizzards  &  2 catastrophic hurricanes ( Irene - Sandy ) which shut down 20% of the USA & caused hundreds of billions of dollars in damage.  It is NOT just " co-incidence " all these disasters are happening  in parallel  with the US Govt's policy of supporting  the dividing of Israel  ( God's Land ) as a 2-state solution

 

Jeremiah 25 v 31-33   ( Amplified Version ) ​​

" The tumult  will resound to the ends of the earth , for  the LORD  will bring  CHARGES AGAINST THE NATIONS  [ as all nations move to divide Israel ] He will bring  judgment  on  ALL MANKIND  &  put  the wicked  to the sword " declares the LORD.  This is what the LORD Almighty says  . . . ." Look !  DISASTER is spreading  FROM NATION  to  NATION  ;  A  MIGHTY STORM  is rising from  THE ENDS OF THE EARTH. "

SIGN # 10 -- SIGNS & WONDERS

Aside from the incredible series of natural disasters in 2011 & 2012 , the scriptures also forewarned there would be extra-ordinary " Signs & Wonders " immediately prior to the Lord's return as a warning & encouragement to those who believe. Signs & Wonders both in the ' LITERAL ' heavens & earth , such as stunning volcano eruptions & ash clouds extending around the globe , rare lunar & solar eclipses , mysterious mass deaths of birds & fish , ' freak ' tornadoes in unheard of regions ( Italy ~ NewZealand ~ Portugal )  &  devastating earthquakes.  These natural events , being  symbolic  of events in  the  METAPHORICAL ( ' political ' )  heavens &  earth that would shake the world​.   ' Seismic ' global events such as the  Arab Spring - Global Financial Crisis - Debt Crises - Occupy Protests - Austerity Protests  . . . .  all  unprecedented  &  all heralding the Master's soon return

Joel 2 v 30-32

I will shew  ' WONDERS ' . . .  in the heavens  &  in the earth  . . .  BLOOD​  FIRE  &  PILLARS OF SMOKE .  The  SUN  shall be  turned into darkness  &  the  MOON  into blood  ,  BEFORE  the great  &  the terrible  DAY of the LORD come.  And it shall come to pass ,  that  ' WHOSOEVER '   shall call on the  name of the LORD  shall be delivered :  For   in mount Zion  &  ​in Jerusalem  shall be deliverance , as the LORD hath said
