The Eminent Return of Christ JESUS
2 Timothy 3:1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. 6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, 7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
Daniel 12:4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased. (Everyone can travel anywhere, people are busy, busy, busy going here and going there, and knowledge is available to us at our fingertips – no other generation could have access to all this knowledge in 100 years)
Israel, God’s Timepiece:
Matthew 24:3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? 4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. 5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. 6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. 9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. 10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. 11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. 12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. 13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
Luke 21:30 When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand. 31 So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand. 32 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled.
The Fig tree in the Bible is Jerusalem. Jerusalem came back into the hands of the Jews in 1967 through the 6 day war. The Fig tree is putting forth its leaves.
Genesis 17:20 And as for Ishmael (Ishmael, the arabs & muslims), I have heard thee: Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly; twelve princes shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation. 21 But my covenant will I establish with Isaac (Israel), which Sarah shall bear unto thee at this set time in the next year.
Exodus 6: 8 And I will bring you in unto the land, concerning the which I did swear to give it to Abraham, to Isaac (Israel), and to Jacob (Israel); and I will give it you for an heritage: I am the LORD.
Deuteronomy 7:6 For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God: the LORD thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth. 7 The LORD did not set his love upon you, nor choose you, because ye were more in number than any people; for ye were the fewest of all people: 8 But because the LORD loved you, and because he would keep the oath which he had sworn unto your fathers, hath the LORD brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you out of the house of bondmen, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt.
Judges 2:1 And an angel of the LORD came up from Gilgal to Bochim, and said, I made you to go up out of Egypt, and have brought you unto the land which I sware unto your fathers; and I said, I will never break my covenant with you.
Psalm 89:34 My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips.
Ezekiel 22:15 And I will scatter thee among the heathen, and disperse thee in the countries, and will consume thy filthiness out of thee. 16 And thou shalt take thine inheritance in thyself in the sight of the heathen, and thou shalt know that I am the LORD.
Leviticus 26:33 And I will scatter you among the heathen, and will draw out a sword after you: and your land shall be desolate, and your cities waste.
Ezekiel 36:22 Therefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord GOD; I do not this for your sakes, O house of Israel, but for mine holy name’s sake, which ye have profaned among the heathen, whither ye went.
23 And I will sanctify my great name, which was profaned among the heathen, which ye have profaned in the midst of them; and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, saith the Lord GOD, when I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes. 24 For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land. 25 Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you. 26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. 27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them. 28 And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God. 29 I will also save you from all your uncleannesses: and I will call for the corn, and will increase it, and lay no famine upon you. 30 And I will multiply the fruit of the tree, and the increase of the field, that ye shall receive no more reproach of famine among the heathen. 31 Then shall ye remember your own evil ways, and your doings that were not good, and shall lothe yourselves in your own sight for your iniquities and for your abominations. 32 Not for your sakes do I this, saith the Lord GOD, be it known unto you: be ashamed and confounded for your own ways, O house of Israel. 33 Thus saith the Lord GOD; In the day that I shall have cleansed you from all your iniquities I will also cause you to dwell in the cities, and the wastes shall be builded. 34 And the desolate land shall be tilled, whereas it lay desolate in the sight of all that passed by. 35 And they shall say, This land that was desolate is become like the garden of Eden; and the waste and desolate and ruined cities are become fenced, and are inhabited. 36 Then the heathen that are left round about you shall know that I the LORD build the ruined places, and plant that that was desolate: I the LORD have spoken it, and I will do it.
Isaiah 66:8Who hath heard such a thing? who hath seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? or shall a nation be born at once? for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children.
After 2000 years of being dispersed from their land and scattered throughout the gentile nations, where they profane the name of Jesus because they did not receive their Messiah, God gathered Jews and brought them back to the Land of Israel. Jeremiah 16:16 Behold, I will send for many fishers, saith the LORD, and they shall fish them; and after will I send for many hunters, and they shall hunt them from every mountain, and from every hill, and out of the holes of the rocks. (Theodor Herzel, tried to lure them back to the Land in early 1900’s to make a homeland for the Jews in the old land of Israel) ‘and hunters’ (Hitler) after them so they would come back to their Jewish Homeland for safety. It was desolate when Jesus brought them back. They became a nation on May 14, 1948, in one day. Today, if you fly over Israel, it is a green strip in the middle of a giant desert. No other people have ever been taken from their land, kept their identity and then returned to their original land 2000 years later. Only God can do this!
Amos 9:15And I will plant them upon their land, and they shall no more be pulled up out of their land which I have given them, saith the LORD thy God.
In Ezekiel 37, God says that He will put back together the Valley of Dry Bones (the whole house of Israel, their bones that are dry, spiritually dead for a long time in their gentile nation graves) and bring them back to their land in unbelief, but then will breathe His Holy Spirit into the whole house of Israel and they will know that Jesus is their Messiah forevermore. God says, 27 My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 28 And the heathen shall know that I the LORD do sanctify Israel, when my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore.
Ezekiel 38:18 And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog (as the Head Commander of Persia (which became Iran in 1932), and Egypt, Libya, and Turkey and other muslim nations) shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, that my fury shall come up in my face. 19 For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel; 20 So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground. 21 And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord GOD: every man’s sword shall be against his brother.22 And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone.
Israel has not dwelt securely since they became a nation in 1948, so this must be in the Tribulation when the Antichrist signs a 7-year peace pact with Israel acting like he is going to protect them from anymore invasions.
Ezekiel 39:2 And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of thee, and will cause thee to come up from the north parts, and will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel:
Ezekiel 39:22 So the house of Israel shall know that I am the LORD their God from that day and forward.
Ezekiel 39:29 Neither will I hide my face any more from them: for I have poured out my spirit upon the house of Israel, saith the Lord GOD.
DO YOU THINK WE ARE CLOSE? WE ARE SO CLOSE TO THIS HAPPENING. IT WOULD BE NO SURPRISE IF IT HAPPENED TOMORROW – OTHER THAN THE FACT THAT THIS CANNOT HAPPEN UNTIL ISRAEL IS DWELLING IN ‘PEACE’. (Israel and this world will have NO peace until the Prince of Peace comes back.)
Psalm 83 – speaks of a different war that could happen any minute:
Psalm 83:1 Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God.2 For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head.3 They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones.4 They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.5 For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee:6 The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagarenes; 7 Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre;8 Assur also is joined with them: they have holpen the children of Lot. Selah.
These are Arab and muslim nations that surround Israel, today. Iran funds Hamas in western Israel Gaza Strip, and Hezbollah in Lebanon, represented by Tyre, which is north of Israel. Syria and Jordan are represented. Israel is surrounded now with people who want to wipe them off the map.
Isaiah 17:1 The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.
Damascus is the capital of Syria. It is still there as of today, but they are going crazy over there. The Arab League is even upset that al-Assad is killing his people who demonstrate against him.
Zechariah 12:2 Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem. 3 And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.
Zechariah 14:3 Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle. 4 And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south. 5 And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the LORD my God shall come, and all the saints with thee. Zechariah 14: 11 And men shall dwell in it, and there shall be no more utter destruction; but Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited. 14: 12 And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth. 14:16 And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles.
2 Peter 3:8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
From Genesis to Jesus’ First Coming was 4000 years. There have been 2000 years since He died for us. That is 6000 years – or 6 Days? What did God do on the 7th day? Rest…The (1000) Millennium when The Prince of Peace rules and we can rest from our labor!
2 Thessalonians 2:1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, 2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. 3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
Revelation – Letters to the 7 Churches describe the Church Age from the time Jesus was crucified to the time of the Rapture. The 7th Church is the Lukewarm Church, Revelation 3:15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. 16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. 17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: This describes most churches of today. This is the Apostasy, the Apostate Church. They say that they are Christians, but they have not given their lives to Jesus to rule and have not been born again. They do not know or care what the Bible truly says. Man makes up church to suit his desires. 2 Timothy 4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; (preachers that only tell them what they want to hear, not that they are sinners that must be washed in Christ’s blood to be righteous, and that they must give up their life for Christ).
Revelation 13:16And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 17And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
Only recently have we had the technology for everyone in the world to be monitored and accounted for through computers, satellites, GPS systems, etc. They already know what we buy and sell.
This is pertaining to God’s Two Witnesses in Jerusalem: Revelation 11:8 And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. 9 And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves. 10 And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth. 11 And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them. 12 And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.
Only now is it possible for the whole world to view their dead bodies and their resurrection!
In Daniel 11, he talks about the warring with the Antichrist and says in vs 44 But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many. In Revelation 9, at the 6th Trumpet, there is a 200,000,000 man army that will come from east of the Euphrates River and cross the Euphrates (which is in Iraq). China has a 200,000,000 man army, today. In Iraq, they have built a water diversion structure that can hold back the Euphrates so that it can be crossed.
People are all hooked up to electronics instead of having loving relationships. People went crazy, in a satanic haze, over Obama’s saying “hope and change”. The world is ripe for worshiping the Antichrist. People of today would rather worship a man than worship Jesus Christ. Hollywood ‘stars’ are worshiped. We have ‘American Idol’ and think nothing of it. Woe to those who call good evil and evil good. Isaiah 5:20
Jesus is coming back very soon to take His own out of the world so that satan can have his 7 years to be worshiped. This is what satan has been lusting for since before he got kicked out of Heaven. The Tribulation is called “the time of Jacob’s Trouble”, Jeremiah 30:7, the last week (shabua, 7 years) decreed for the Jews. Daniel 9:24
The Tribulation is the wrath of God poured out on unrepentant man who will not receive His free gift of salvation, Jesus Christ, Our Lord and Savior. God gives man the desires of his heart. Most men prefer satan’s filth over Jesus’ Love. Most men are too pride-filled to ever surrender to being a servant in the King of Kings’ and Lord of Lords’ Kingdom. God will give the worldly and ungodly the Antichrist to serve.
Come quickly, Lord Jesus.
