Signs of the Last Days - News for the week of Dec 18 - Dec 23, 2017

MERRY CHRISTMAS

We wish all our readers a Christmas to remember. One that will bring the story of Jesus's coming to earth closer to heart and soul. And all the best for the coming year, 2018.

Every church Christmas play will likely quote the following portion of scripture, with each production featuring a handful of small children decked out in their best angel costumes:

And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.  And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us. Luke 2:13-15 KJV

Angels played a significant role in Jesus Christ's first advent to this world. It was an angel that broke the news to Mary that she would carry the Christ child to birth, (Luke 1:26-35), and of course as the scripture above notes, it was a multitude of the heavenly host, (Angels), that broke into praising in the skies above Bethlehem when the Christ child was born.

Will Angels yet again play significant roles prior to Jesus Christ's second coming? Absolutely. Reading through the book of Revelation we read that Angels will be involved in waging a war with Satan as he is cast to Earth, (Rev 12:7-10), will be in charge of the seven trumpets, (Rev 8:2), and the seven bowl judgments, (Rev 15:1). And very interestingly, the people of the Earth during the Tribulation will witness an Angel flying about in the second heavens, (atmosphere), proclaiming the eternal gospel.

Then I saw another angel flying in midair, and he had the eternal gospel to proclaim to those who live on the earth—to every nation, tribe, language and people. He said in a loud voice, “Fear God and give him glory, because the hour of his judgment has come. Worship him who made the heavens, the earth, the sea and the springs of water.” Revelation 14:6-7

This thought of Angels came to our attention after reading a pair of articles which we stumbled across this past week. The first article features a Jewish woman who may have had an encounter with an Angel who proclaimed the gospel message to her, while the second article reports on an incident some years ago when Russian Cosmonauts witnessed what they believed to be giant Angels hovering in space just outside their space station.

'Jesus is My Messiah': Jewish Woman Comes Face to Face with an Angel, Gives Life to Christ
"A man who was literally about seven feet tall with piercing blue eyes one day came in. He had a white Bible that was huge. It was about the size of a family Bible and he started telling me the gospel from this Bible and that Jesus was actually Jewish," Merritt said. "For the first time in my life I was told that Jesus was a Jewish savior and that he was my Messiah."

A Strange Encounter with Angels. In Space.
There hovering in space in front of the space station were what the crew would describe as seven enormous winged humanoid beings estimated as being around 90 feet in height and with calm, smiling faces, and it was from these bizarre entities that the ethereal light was apparently emanating. They were also claimed to exude a feeling of calm and peacefulness, and oddly the cosmonauts felt no fear during the encounter, merely wonderment. According to the witnesses, the colossal apparitions, which they described as “angels,” matched the speed of the space station, remaining in the same position for around 10 minutes before fading away.

So Angels in space and Angels that proclaim the gospel message....just as the book of Revelation indicates will happen during the coming period of Tribulation upon the Earth. As they say, truth is stranger than fiction.

This Christmas season please show kindness to those you meet along the way. Show hospitality and consideration to the stranger you meet because you just might be standing before an Angel who is there for a reason.

Don't forget to show hospitality to strangers, for some who have done this have entertained angels without realizing it! Hebrews 13:2 NLT

We will return after the New Year. God Bless and we will see you then. Keep looking up and Maranatha.

Prophecy Sign:  Jerusalem - The Burdensome Stone/Cup of Trembling

I will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. There I will put them on trial for what they did to my inheritance, my people Israel, because they scattered my people among the nations and divided up my land. Joel 3:2

128 countries vote in favor of UN call for US to withdraw Jerusalem decision
The UN General Assembly has overwhelming adopted a resolution calling on the US to reverse its decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. One hundred and twenty-eight countries voted in favor of the motion. Nine states voted against the UN resolution and 35 nations abstained.

176 nations at UN call for Palestinian statehood
The General Assembly voted 176-7 on Tuesday to affirm the Palestinian right to self-determination, one day after Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas pledged to renew his quest for state membership in the international body. The vote is nonbinding and has no impact beyond underscoring international support for Palestinian statehood among most of the UN’s 193 members. The United States, Canada and Israel were among the seven that opposed the text; four states abstained.

US vetoes Security Council bid to reverse Jerusalem recognition
The United States on Monday vetoed a United Nations Security Council draft resolution condemning the US recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and calling on countries not to move diplomatic missions to the city. The other 14 members of the council voted in favor of the text, but US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley’s “no” vote ensured that it was rejected. It was the first US veto in the Security Council since US President Donald Trump took office nearly a year ago.

  1. Having just finished studying the book of Revelation with my Wed. night bible study group over the last 2 1/2 years with off time during the summer and reading bible prophecy websites, I would like to offer a possible scenario as soon as this spring 2018. It seems to me that the perfect storm can happen if not this spring, then not more than a couple more years. This spring just seems plausible. With Saudi Arabia and Iranian tensions ramping up, I can possibly see the Psalm 83 War happening in a few months. Iran backed Hezbollah starts the Ps. 83 war with Israel. Israel then using Saudi Arabia airspace to take out Iran's nuclear facilities. Then all hell breaks loose as Iran trys to close the Strait of Hormuz as they have threatened. I could see the price of oil going way up resulting in higher gas prices. I can also see a world economic crash which in the U.S. will be blamed on Trump. I have been saying for some time that I hoped that Trump would not be too little, too late. Well, this could lead to the rapture of the church later in the spring near Pentecost. Then the first seal is the rising of the antichrist and the covenant with the many. Then seal judgment two is thecRussian, Iran, and Turkey led invasion of Israel...the Gog and Magog War described in detail in Ezekiel 38 and 39. The rest is history until Jesus second coming! Just saying...possible.
