Violence will fill the Earth


Prophecy Sign:  Violence will fill the Earth

"As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man"  Matthew 24:37

Jesus gave this warning to his disciples and all Christians that have lived over the last 2,000 years and up to today.  It was a warning of a major sign that would be a prelude to Christ's coming to this earth.  The general consensus interpretation of this prophecy usually suggests that Christ was talking about the Great Tribulation period and what would be taking place at that time.

So what were some of the things occurring at Noah's time that would cause God to render such a horrific judgement on millions, (perhaps billions), of people at that time?  Violence was certainly one evil that caught the eye of God:

Now the earth was corrupt in God’s sight and was full of violence.  God saw how corrupt the earth had become, for all the people on earth had corrupted their ways. Genesis 6:11-12 NIV

So then, we should expect that at the time of the end, shortly before the return of Jesus Christ, the world would become and ever more violent place.  Now the world has always been a very violent place, but we think what Jesus was referring to was the fact that we would see this violence for ourselves, occurring all over the globe.  Never has there been a time such as the time we live in now where we can watch the TV news, read the online news sites, view recent Youtube videos or receive a Twitter news update, all reporting the violence filling the earth.  


From the articles:
Police shot at a roving mob in India's north-eastern state of Assam on Tuesday as security forces struggled to contain ethnic fighting that has killed 22 people and left remote hamlets in flames, forcing tens of thousands from their homes. Rioting between Bodo tribespeople and Muslim settlers has raged for days. Several people suffered bullet wounds and others were injured in a stampede when police fired to disperse a gang of 400 on Tuesday morning, a senior police official said. Soldiers and federal paramilitary troops patrolled Bodo tribe-dominated Kokrajhar town and outlying areas on armored vehicles mounted with machine guns.

A series of roadside bombings, exploding cars and gun battles have killed at least 111 people and injured more than 200 across Iraq in the deadliest day of violence in more than two years. The coordinated attacks on Monday come after al Qaeda's leader in Iraq, Abu Bakr al Baghdadi, warned the militant network was returning to strongholds from which it was driven before US troops left the country in December. "The majority of the Sunnis in Iraq support al Qaeda and are waiting for its return," he said in a statement last week. The bombings and shootings all took place within a few hours of each other, shattering a two-week lull in violence in the run-up to the Muslim holy fasting month of Ramadan, which started in Iraq on Saturday.
