Signs of the Last Days - News for the week of May 15 - May 20, 2017

Jesus Christ is coming very soon. And how do we know this beyond the signs told to us in bible prophecy? We know because God's prophetic time clock, Israel, is back in the land and has been a nation since 1948. Since the Jewish State declared itself an independent nation in May of 1948 God has been building up Zion in preparation of his Son's return to this earth:

For the LORD will rebuild Zion and appear in his glory. Psalm 102:16 NIV

Jesus himself told his disciples, (and the rest of us who would read his words), that the sign of his near return would be when Israel, (the fig tree), would take root, bud, blossom and leaf out:

Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near. Even so, when you see all these things, you know that it is near, right at the door. Matthew 24:32-33 NIV

We have confirmation in the Old Testament relating to Jesus' words to his disciples:

In days to come Jacob will take root, Israel will bud and blossom and fill all the world with fruit. Isaiah 27:6 NIV

This building process has now been ongoing for 120 years:

1897 - First Zionist Congress - 120 years to 2017
1917 - Balfour Declaration - 100 years to 2017
1947 - U.N, Partition Proposal - 70 years to 2017
1948 - Israel declares itself to be a nation
1967 - Israel reunifies all of Jerusalem under her control - 50 years to 2017


Isn't it interesting how the above lengths of time have biblical connections:

God's capping of a lifetime at 120 years - Genesis 6:3
The length of an average lifetime being 70-80 years - Psalm 90:10
The Jubilee Cycle being 49 years plus the Jubilee Year equaling 50 years - Leviticus 25:10


Jesus also told his disciples that the generation alive at the time when all these things take place would not pass away:

I tell you the truth, this generation will not pass from the scene until all these things take place.
Matthew 24:34 NLT


So the generation that was born when the United Nations carved up the Holy Land and gave a slice to the Jewish people is already 70 years old. Since we know the Tribulation is another 7 years in length, that would suggest at the very least the generation that is around to see all of what is to come would be 77 years of age when Jesus Christ returns to this earth. Certainly God could conceivably stretch things out until the capped lifetime of 120 years has been exhausted, and therefore the Tribulation could be several decades away. However, just how many people do you know that are 120 years old? We know of none presently alive in this world. It would seem more fitting that God would desire many people of that generation to witness all of his sovereign plans for this world and would cut things much shorter than 120 years. Considering the average life expectancy of a healthy individual in the developed world is slightly over 80 years , it's a good bet that we are on the very precipice of something very big happening in the near future.

Are you ready? Do you know Yeshua Ha-Mashiach, (Jesus the Messiah) as your personal Lord and Savior? Time is short and now is the day of salvation

For he says, "In the time of my favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you." I tell you, now is the time of God's favor, now is the day of salvation. 2 Corinthians 6:2 NIV

So what else is happening in this world of ours?  Middle-East peace talks are again front and center as the American President jets off to the epi-center.  Alliances and armies are being built up in readiness of war.   The global economy is racing towards calamity. Genetic research and technology has brought the world to the point where artificial intelligence and artificial human life grown outside the womb are no longer the stuff of science fiction.  Scientists and  researchers are looking heavenward for our Alien space-brothers to save humanity from destroying itself.  The globe is shaking and groaning, (earthquakes and volcanoes), like never before.  And society as a whole is rapidly descending into godlessness, while much of the church fiddles.

For those that know Jesus Christ, we should not be afraid of what is coming.  Rather we should rejoice in the knowledge of our salvation and that Almighty God is in control.

Until next week, keep looking up, our redeemer is about to return for his Bride the Church. That is our Blessed Hope.  Enjoy the video below.
