“Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near. 33) So you also, when you see all these things, know that it is near – at the doors!” (Matthew 24:32-33) ……

Well … Here we are! … All the hoopla regarding the ‘Shemitah and Blood Moon’ biblical speculations frenzy concerning the ‘end of days’ has come & gone, and the world seems to be going on just as before. … To the point, we’ve experienced an ever increasing number of these types of events in recent years … and, as usual, nothing appears to have taken place once again. …. Sadly, all these ‘misses’ cause more & more people to become skeptical to not only Bible prophecy, but also to the rest of its teachings as well. … This is tragic! … Why is it that some very well intentioned people have to go off the deep end and get into this date-setting thing? …. Again, it’s tragic because of the damage it causes the church, and only makes it more difficult concerning the work that has been set out before His followers. …

So today, I want to try and uplift those who are filled with disappointment and who feel completely mislead. … As a dedicated ‘watchman’ of God’s prophetic Word, these kinds of things only make me realize that I must work all that much harder to overcome the damage that has been done. …. Let me say it as plain as I can … Bible prophecy IS still 100% accurate! … and God intended for us to learn of it to help prepare us for what is truly about to come upon this world. … Why else would it include nearly one-third of the entire Bible? ….

So now, let’s get back to the basics of what I’m trying to say. …. As always, we shall use God’s Word to set the stage ….. In Jesus’ teachings concerning the end of days, He tells us plainly that even though we WILL NOT know the exact time, we WILL know the season! … Referring back to our opening passage, we see where He used the ‘Fig Tree’ as an example of what to watch for. .. When it ‘brings forth leaves,’ He tells us that this will indicate that we are ‘right at the door.’ … What does the fig tree represent? …. Many believe that it stands for Israel, and when it regained its status as a nation in 1948, that was the indicator of the real beginning of end-time signs. … While I believe this is true, I also believe that the fig tree also represents all the prophecies yet to be fulfilled in these final days. … Let me share just some of the other ‘signs ‘ that are currently taking place as of this writing ……

*Gog is stirring! .. After being ‘in the background’ since the fall of the USSR in 1991, Putin is bringing Russia (Magog – King of the North) back into the forefront of world politics ….

*Russia (Magog) & Iran (Persia) now are in full cooperation with one another – never seen before in history & never expected …

*Syria disintegrating right before our eyes, bringing forward the possibility of the soon-to-be-fulfilled prophecy of the utter destruction of Damascus (Isaiah 17:1) …

*This week’s gathering of the nations at the UN, which included the likes of Vladimir Putin, Barak Obama & Pope Francis, plus many more. … While all gave many words dripping of unity & togetherness, most missed the prophetic ‘big one!’ … The UN Agenda of September 25-27, 2015 agreed to the following … “Transforming Our World: The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development”

… In short, it lays out an overview of a complete plan for nothing other than a global, or world government! (Revelation 13) … Not to be outdone, the Pope’s input concerning religious unity did not go unnoticed … also ultimately nothing short of the coming world church (Revelation 17) …

*”Peace & Safety’ – World leaders striving for peace, and in that process, are giving ‘nuclear license’ to fanatic regimes bent on wrecking havoc on the world so as to usher in their ‘messiah’ … For those who have studied history, this rings of England’s Chamberlain just before the outbreak of WW2 … Scripture says this … “For when they say, ‘Peace and safety!’ then suddenly destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape.” (1 Thessalonians 5:3) …

*2 Timothy 3:1-4 says this … “But know this, that in the last days, perilous times will come: 2) For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3) unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, 4) traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God.” …. Does this represent our world today? …. More than ever! …

*World Economy is imploding. … EU on the brink – America more than $18 trillion in debt & being dismantled right before our eyes. … In fact, the entire world is transforming as we watch in awe. .. Economic destruction is imminent, which will result in mankind’s desperate search for someone .. anyone .. who can save them! … Just take a guess at who that might be ……

*2 Timothy 4:3-4 … “For a time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; 4) and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.” ……Apostasy is raging! ..

People are fleeing the church because it has become so corrupted with false doctrine & self-greed. ..

Along with that is the rapidly increasing persecution of ‘true’ followers (the remnant) …

*Luke 21:25 says … ” …. and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity …” … Most all the nations of the earth are facing overwhelming problems for which there seems to be no solution. .. Hence, perplexity ..

*Increasing pestilence … Unprecedented weather events are becoming more ‘common’ by the hour … News headlines, now more than ever, shout biblical terms to describe them – terms such as ‘biblical’ & ‘apocalyptic’ ….. Also, 6+ earthquakes have quadrupled in the past two decades compared to any other time in recorded history. … So, too, volcanoes are increasing at a record pace. … Bottom line is this – all forms of pestilences are increasing exponentially ……

There’s so much more, but this will certainly give you a fairly good overview that we are certainly ‘in the season’ of Christ’s return. … My point is to try and encourage the discouraged who have been let down by the latest attempts to set dates. …. The signs & times we are living in are completely real & provable through the divine Word of God. … Now we must go forward and not let up on our mission, and that is to warn people that time is indeed short and its time to get their lives together so as they, too, can relish in the safety and peace of His promises. … God’s Word tells us what is coming and how we are to live in these perilous times … to be strong, loving, and encouraging to this dying world. … We are to be the ‘Light in the Darkness’ … Hallelujah!

I will close with this Twitter from Louis Giglio … “If we spent as much energy inviting people toward the love of Jesus as we did stressing over the Blood Moon Apocalypse …..” …. His point is right, and the results would be obvious … more people would hear of the truth and join Jesus Christ in His coming eternal Kingdom. …

Until next time,

Red
