” The End Times.”
This is a
“Blow the trumpet in Zion;
sound the alarm on my holy mountain.”(Joel 2:1)
It’s time for all people to awaken from their slumber.
This is a time to see clearly the signs of the times.
No.2 JudeoChristianClarion.Com “ End Times”
When asked by the Pharisees and Sadducees about signs, Yeshua replied in Matthew 16:2-3 this,
“When it is evening, you say, ‘It will be fair weather, for the sky is red.’ And in the morning, ‘There will be a storm today, for the sky is red and threatening.’ You know how to discern the appearance of the sky, but are you unable to discern the signs of the times?”
Today as we go about our everyday lives,we have forgotten Yeshua’s words.
Yeshua saw the signs in His day and warned us in Matthew 24:4-14,
Yeshua answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many. You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains. Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.”
The Horses of Revelation 6 are riding and have been riding. We have seen the birth pangs of Messiah’s second coming increase quicker and quicker in these later years. Wickedness has increased so that we now call good evil and evil good.
2 Timothy 3: 1-5 tells us this, “But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, slanderers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, holding to a form of godliness although they have denied its power; avoid such people as these.”
Today we see a great falling away of believers. The uniting of the religions which has been done under this pope, all for the sake of unity and this will bring about the false prophet. All things are global today, which will lead to the one world government and that will bring about the antichrist.
2 Thessalonians 2: 7-12, “For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is removed. Then that lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will eliminate with the breath of His mouth and bring to an end by the appearance of His coming; that is, the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and false signs and wonders, and with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not accept the love of the truth so as to be saved. For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false, in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness.”
Today we also see great persecution and martyrdom which is taking place daily around the world. We also see prophecies like Israel returning to its land being fulfilled, and now the embassy is in Jerusalem, the ancient capital.
This is the time for the virgins to light their lamps, for the bridegroom is coming. Matthew 25:13 ends the parable by saying this, “Be on the alert then, because you do not know the day nor the hour.”
This is the time to bring in the harvest as Matthew 9:36-38 says ‘Seeing the crowds, He felt compassion for them, because they were distressed and downcast, like sheep without a shepherd. Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Therefore, plead with the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest.”
This is the time to seek the Lord as Isaiah 55:6-7 tells us..“Seek the Lord while He may be found; call upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked abandon his way, and the unrighteous person his thoughts; and let him return to the Lord, and He will have compassion on him, and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon”.
This is the time for us to not only open our eyes and see, but to open our ears to hear what the Holy Spirit is saying to the believers. The birth pangs of the Messiah’s second coming are crying out louder and louder every day.
2 Peter 3:3-9 leaves us with this thought. “Know this first of all, that in the last days mockers will come with their mocking, following after their own lusts, and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue just as they were from the beginning of creation.” For when they maintain this, it escapes their notice that by the word of God the heavens existed long ago and the earth was formed out of water and by water, through which the world at that time was destroyed by being flooded with water. But by His word the present heavens and earth are being reserved for fire, kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly people. But do not let this one fact escape your notice, beloved, that with the Lord one day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years like one day. The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not willing for any to perish, but for all to come to repentance.”
