What's going on in the past, today, to the future
Hebrews 13:8, "Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever."
Through the study of how Biblical Prophecies have been fulfilled in the past we can have a good understanding of how the future process will impact our current situation and future. Come with us on a journey to examine the scriptures giving us confidence in who Jesus is as well as motivation to share the gospel more for Christ return to be nearer to bring true one world peace to this chaotic earth (Matthew 24:14). Check out our blog and social media for earlier prophecy articles:
Prophecy Update: Amalgam! The big picture of today's world. The following video may not be appropriate for all audiences-though it was toned down. Viewer discretion is advised.
I (Pastor Mike) found this link lines up with the 'world situation notes' I've been keeping. Each category stated is from the Bible and can be written down to catalog all news events of the beginning of 2015. I encourage everyone to take out your Bibles and mark off each of these overall categories for when you are reading or watching the news to use them as examples to share about Christ!
Biblically announced end of times precursor snapshot of what has been seen in 2015-ish (not a complete showing of events).
"This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away." -2nd Timothy 3:1-5
Remember Luke 12
54 And he said also to the people, When ye see a cloud rise out of the west, straightway ye say, There cometh a shower; and so it is.
55 And when ye see the south wind blow, ye say, There will be heat; and it cometh to pass.
56 Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that ye do not discern this time?
There are 333 prophecies about Jesus 1st coming, in which He scolds the people, because they should have been able to see who He was, & what was happening because of them. Jesus shows that we should be able to tell the times of the seasons by the prophecies given. And so even many more prophecies are given about Jesus’ 2nd coming. We too should not be taken off guard, but instead encouraged knowing that the time of Christ Coming Again is near.
In closing I encourage you not to have a heavy heart. God plans, ways, and purposes are always for the best!
Psalm 119:68, "You are good (God is good), and you do good (the way God does things are good); teach me your statutes (laws).“
I know certain people get pumped up over the wrongs aspects therefore paying little consideration to the impact on others…it is true. But instead of letting ourselves be weighed down by the negative issues I encourage you to take heart in what’s good, lovely, & true.
Philippians 4:8, "In conclusion, brothers, focus your thoughts on what is true, noble, righteous, pure, lovable or admirable, on some virtue or on something praiseworthy.”
The End Times are filled with good things as well, God’s final direct outreaches with millions, maybe billions getting saved! 144,000 Evangelists (Rev. 7), Prophets (Rev. 11), Angels Proclaiming the Gospel to all man/every tribe (Rev. 14)…& more!
God does all things in proper timing for certain people groups in different ways. God could’ve just had Eve bear Jesus & everything would’ve been over with so few ever having the opportunity for Salvation through the Genesis 3:15 Rescue Plan of Jesus. But He didn’t, out of His love for wanting you & I to be opportune Salvation. Everything is so those people, even through the End Times hardships, are brought to the best opportune circumstances to accept salvation as well in the fulness of His timing in His larger mosaic picture master piece He is creating.
Galatians 4:4-7, " 4 but when the appointed time arrived (the fullness of time), God sent forth his Son. He was born from a woman, born into a culture in which legalistic perversion of the Torah was the norm,5 so that he might redeem those in subjection to this legalism and thus enable us to be made God's sons. 6Now because you are sons, God has sent forth into our hearts the Spirit of his Son, the Spirit who cries out, "Abba!" (that is, "Dear Father!"). 7 So through God you are no longer a slave but a son, and if you are a son you are also an heir.”
Ephesians 1:9-10, " 9 he has made known to us his secret plan, which by his own will he designed beforehand in connection with the Messiah 10 and will put into effect when the time is ripe (the fullness of time) - his plan to place everything in heaven and on earth under the Messiah's headship.”
Man will get to the point of being so hard hearted that God directly has to bring in the beginning of judgements for people once again to start accepting Salvation.
Prophecies, specifically focusing on Eternity encourages us, 1 Corinthians 14:3+31….this includes the End Times. It is a Blessed hope & rejoicing that Jesus comes.
Titus 2:13, “….while continuing to expect the blessed fulfillment of our certain hope, which is the appearing of the Sh'khinah of our great God and the appearing of our Deliverer, Yeshua the Messiah. "
As the End Times approach we need to be acting thought, word, & deed in love, 1 Peter 4:7-11.
Again, take heart! I encourage you to look at it through the eyes of Jesus as opportunity to share out more love because of what is happening.
