Can any of you believe what is happening all around
us right now? ….. In all my 35 years of being a ‘Bible prophecy watchman,’
I’ve never seen so many things happening at once all around us! …
Not even close! … and as each day goes by, I cannot wait to pull up
the international headlines just to see what is happening …. It’s
simply amazing!!!

Let’s start with Israel …The Bible says very clearly
that in the last days, Israel would be surrounded by her enemies and
that she would stand alone to face them (Zechariah 12:3).  …
As we read this, she is under assault by enemies that have sworn her
destruction … and of course, she is fighting back. … Some are speculating
that this may be the prelude to the war spoken of by the prophet Ezekiel
in Chapters 38 & 39 of his book, which takes place right before
the Tribulation period.  … It is possible, but I think not, simply
because Russia, which is Magog in Ezekiel’s prophecy, is remaining on
the sidelines, at least for the moment. … Still others think it might
be the Psalm 83 War, which involves several of the modern-day countries
which border the current state of Israel. … This also takes place
in the latter times and I would be more inclined to think this could
maybe be that one. … Whatever, we need to watch it very closely ..
and yes, it is definitely another sign of the final moments of the Church
age.  (“You will hear of wars and rumors of wars …”
Matthew 24:6) ……..

… And what about earthquakes & volcanoes?
… In just the past 10 days, we’ve had more large (6.0 or greater)
quakes than ever! … And as each day passes, more & more volcanoes,
most of which have been either dead or dormant for centuries are now
all of a sudden coming to life!  … Now I know that the ‘skeptics’
say these things have always been around … and while this is true,
not at the intensity or frequency that we now see. … The simple fact
is, earthquakes alone have increased 4-fold since 1980 .. and volcanoes?
.. According to even the most skeptical scientists, they agree that
current global volcanic activity is at an unusually high level … and
more disconcerting is, several of the ‘super’ ones are showing signs
of life (Yellowstone in Wyoming, Iceland, etc).  … If one of
these ‘babies’ should one day let go, life as we know it on planet earth
would be unrecognizable … (“There will be great earthquakes,
famines and pestilences ….”Luke 21:11) ……..

OK, so let’s talk about famine. In the past several
years leading up to 2012, we’ve witnessed growing famine conditions
all across the globe … and then this past year, it grew to levels
not seen in modern history! … Russia, India, Africa, South America,
and even here in the U.S., we saw famine of unprecedented proportions
…..of which we are seeing just the ‘beginnings of sorrows’ as we move
into the coming year. … Predicted global food shortages are staggering!
.. Even before these conditions came upon us, we had nearly a billion
souls going to bed every night hungry … and that was before …. 

As for more pestilence, just look at the ‘crazy’
storm systems taking place all across the world. … Just the recent
storm that devastated the east coast of America is an example of what
we are seeing everywhere.
… Yes, I know that we’ve also always had storms
and weather havoc, but NOT like now! .. These monsters are unprecedented
in history. …. And what does the Bible say?  … “All these
are the beginning of birth pains.” …. Matthew 24:8)

And what about this? …  In Luke 21:25, Christ
said that “There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. 
On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity … ” …..
What have we seen in just the past few weeks? … Explosions on the
sun of unprecedented size … described as ‘huge’ or ‘massive’ … ones,
that if directed toward the earth, could cause unspeakable damage to
our modern way of life. … Also, we all of a sudden are hearing about
asteroids, comets and alien objects not mentioned even just a few years
ago.
In fact, NASA claims that it’s just a ‘matter of
time’ before a large object from space hits us. … Isn’t that uplifting!
There’s more of course, but I want to finish up
with what I consider the major sign (besides Israel) that convinces
me we are at the threshold of our Lord’s imminent return … and that
is the condition of the world’s economy. … The Bible teaches that
in the last days, a global government would come upon the scene and
dominate mankind for but a short period of time. … This government
will rise up in the form of the Revived Roman Empire … specifically
the territory now encompassing most of the European Union. … How can
this happen you may ask? …. First, America, the world’s only remaining
super-power, is weakening by the hour, leaving room for a new economic
power to rise up. … Again the Bible, in the Book of Daniel, tells
of a 10-nation confederacy that will rise up out of the old Roman Empire.
…. As the world’s economy continues to disintegrate, a new charismatic
leader will rise up and claim to have all the answers for the world’s
ills … just like in Germany prior to WW ll. …. The current European
Union, one that is currently evolving and will settle into a 10-nation
or region confederacy, will be the seat of power for this new world
leader … known in Bible prophecy as the anti-christ.

I know all of this seems ‘impossible’ to our human
way of thinking …. but, ready or not, the time of the end is upon
us!  Just look at our own country for a moment! …. Moral chaos
… trillions & trillions of government debt … the government
forming and arming a ‘homeland’  army & buying weapons and
ammunition by the truckloads … the public arming itself with record-setting
gun sales … crime rates soaring … families killing each other …
public shootings ………………….  Where does it stop &
when will it end? …. If you are reading this, you should know the
answer … and that is when the Lord Jesus Christ comes back to rule
this fallen planet!

Just a few years back, a great Bible man in his
80’s named Elbert Peak said this …. “When I was a young man just
starting out in ministry, you had to scratch around like a chicken just
to find one prophetic sign … but now? … Each day I get out of bed,
I expect to hear the trumpet blow!” … How true this statement
is! … Just in my 35+ years of watching, I can’t even begin to tell
you how much it has all changed, especially in just the past couple
of years. … When Jesus mentioned the “birth pains” relating
to the frequency & intensity of all these signs, as usual, He knew
what He was talking about! …

Luke 21:28 says this …. “When these things
begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption
is drawing near.” ………. Hallelujah!!!!!!

Until next time,
