In my last blog article titled “What will the End look like?”, I reviewed what the Lord’s commission was to the Church and the condition of the world at the time of the end. In this article I will continue the end-time picture presented to us in Scripture. The last message of the Old Testament concluded with the following –
“Remember the Law of Moses, My servant, Which I commanded him in Horeb for all Israel, With the statutes and judgments. Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet Before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD. And he will turn The hearts of the fathers to the children, And the hearts of the children to their fathers, Lest I come and strike the earth with a curse.” – Malachi 4:4-6
Words are easy – Truth requires action!
Woe to us! Another political election is nearing! As if we do not hear enough lies and disinformation from the news media already, now it is amplified by all the political maneuvering of Democrats and Republicans as they try to tell the most believable lies to the people to get their votes – lies which history proves they have no intention of keeping!
For example, immigration is portrayed as caring for poor Hispanic immigrants just looking for work when the closer truth is they are looking for a government handout. For every one worker there are a dozen welfare leaches (free medical care, free schooling, free social security benefits, etc.). The truth for the Democrats is they represent potential voters and the Continue reading
There have always been those who set themselves above everyone else and even above God. They believe they can interpret what God has said better than even God. If God doesn’t move according to their understanding or standards, they feel free to reinterpret what must be true. They free to make a golden calf, thus redefining God’s intentions. Sometimes this is based on fear of the future, or genuine misunderstanding, but most often it is based upon hatred and rejection of God and His stated plans. There are plenty golden calf followers with us today. One of the most vocal today is Kurt Eichenwald of Newsweek magazine. In an article titled The Bible: So Misunderstood It’s a Sin he writes –
“They wave their Bibles at passersby, screaming their condemnations of homosexuals. They fall on their knees, worshipping at the base of granite monuments to the Ten Commandments while demanding prayer in school. They appeal to God to save America from their political opponents, mostly Democrats. They gather in football stadiums by the thousands to pray for the country’s salvation.
They are God’s frauds, cafeteria Christians who pick and choose which Bible verses they heed with less care than they exercise in selecting side orders for lunch. They are joined by religious rationalizers—fundamentalists who, unable to find Scripture supporting their biases and beliefs, twist phrases and modify translations to prove they are honoring the Bible’s words.”
Jesus forecast many of the signs that will be appearing in the last days and not the least of them is the sign of Noah.
But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark,and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. – Matthew 24:37-39
The signs of the Lords return are everywhere evident to those who have eyes to see. I have listed here 26 of them but, there are more.
The re-establishment of the nation of Israel is one of the biggest and most evident. The prophet Isaiah called it an “ensign to the nations”. I have spent little time on it even though there are an abundance of prophesies signaling this event as a last days signpost. The prophets Joel and Zachariah declare it is the main argument God uses to judge the nations and that Jerusalem will be a “heavy stone’ and burdensome weight to the world. But, there are many more signs to examine.
