As the End Approaches

26signsMost people are at least curious about the end of the age and wonder when and how it will happen? Many wise men through the ages have tried to answer this riddle. The Holy Bible is full of prophets inspired by God to give clues to the answer to this question but, the greatest prophet in the Bible gives a clear answer to the question “what will be the sign of your coming and the end of the age?”. His name is Jesus, the Messiah.

He gave a complete outline to the events that would lead to the end on the Mount of Olives. That teaching is recorded in Matthew 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21 which are like 3 cameras recording His teaching from 3 different views. The front view is given by Matthew 24 with Mark and Luke repeating much of Matthew but adding some different perspectives. Continue reading

Uplifting the Glory of God (2nd ed.)

 

starry-skyWhile many Christians are failing their main mission in the world – uplifting the glory of God and telling the world the good news of the Gospel – the devil is fast at work trying to defeat God’s plan. Instead of converting the world, Christians are compromising the with the world. They have forgotten to uplift the glory of God by obeying His commands, one of the first of which God ever gave to mankind – Continue reading

Iranian camp for 80000 Shiite Rebels

I have written extensively about the coming war of Ezekiel 38 which often referred to as the war of Gog and Magog. In a recent article named ‘Is Ezekiel’s Gog soon upon us?’ I specifically highlighted recent actions by Turkey to prepare for this war but, in this article I will highlight actions by Iran that very well may set the war off! Iran (known as Persia by Ezekiel) is steadily building Continue reading

Is God Shaking the Earth?

We get so busy with everyday living or our desires to get more that we often do not take time for the really important details of life – like why are we here? What is our real purpose in life? The Scriptures say –

“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.” – Ephesians 2:10

God has a plan for each and every one of us but the devil and even our own desires distract us from accomplishing this plan. So, quite often God has to shake us up, just to get our attention. He can do this many ways; sickness, injury, financial problems, or natural signs or disasters. One way He uses to really get the attention of many at once is an earthquake. They were used many times during the first coming of Jesus – Continue reading

Something is Happening episode 2

starry-sky“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows his handiwork.” – Psalm 19:1

We so often read these scriptures but never realize they may have a prophetic message as well. As we near the end of the age, God will use all His creation to warn us of impending danger, even the clouds of heaven.

“Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.” – Matthew 24:30

“Behold, He is coming with clouds, and every eye will see Him, even they who pierced Him. And all the tribes of the earth will mourn because of Him. Even so, Amen.” – Revelation 1:7 Continue reading

Something is Happening episode 1

Many are worried about the future and wondering what is coming next. Will it be another war, or hurricane, or earthquake, or maybe something worse? Secular news is full of such stories and warnings. But few ever seem to look at what the One who controls it all has to say – God!

7-signs-of-christs-returnAs Jesus was preparing His disciples for the end of the age, this is what He taught –

“For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. “And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. “For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. “All these are the beginning of sorrows. (birth pangs)” – Matthew 24:4-8

Jesus never sugar-coated the truth. Yes, there would be many troubles coming and like birth pangs, they would grow more painful and frequent the closer we come to the delivery. He also warned, these would just be the beginning signs – more is to come. So, where are we now in time? Continue reading

WARNING

Holy Scriptures warn us that God will not bring judgment on a nation without first warning it of the impending danger. We are also warned that the judgment will begin first with the ‘house of God’.

“For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God?” – 1 Peter 4:17

The ‘house of God’, we call it the Church, is supposed to be walking in the light and should be first to see the coming flood of trouble but, for the most part – they are asleep.  Continue reading
