Worst 50 places for Christians ranked in 2019 World Watch List: India in top 10 for first time

Prophecy Sign:  Globalized Christian Persecution
A very bad month for Christians around the world, (eg the devastating attacks in Sri Lanka and the ongoing Jihad against Christians in Nigeria).

In our complacent Western society, we forget that there is an entire other world out there where Christians are being slowly but surely eliminated from the midst of various nations - in particular, the Middle-East Islamic nations.  Christians are being killed simply for being Christians.  This persecution is now expanding beyond the borders of the Islamic world into such places as India, (see article below).

In the West, the elimination of Christianity is occurring by decay within the church, (apostasy), and by de-legitimization of Christian principals/values and mocking of Christians in general, (growing cultural secularism). This is all part of the last days and another key sign of the closeness of Jesus Christ's soon return.

Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, …

When You Understand it Medically, You'll Appreciate Christ's Sacrifice, Suffering, and Death All the More

Prophecy Sign:  The suffering Messiah - Jesus First Coming
Jesus first coming was that of the suffering servant, and was foretold by the prophets of old. His sacrifice on the cross has made it possible for all those that believe to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, God made flesh.

But this is how God fulfilled what he had foretold through all the prophets, saying that his Messiah would suffer. Acts 3:18 NIV

But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to our own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all. Isaiah 53:5-6 NIV

Jesus second coming will be with justice as he strikes down the nations and reclaims the earth, setting up a 1,000 year reign which will be a time of peace like never seen in human history. Jesus will rule and reign with a rod of iron.

I saw heaven standing open and t…

Prophecy Sign:  The future Global Surveillance/Police State
A bit of a different category to look at this time around;  That being; What will the world look like during the time of the Antichrist? 

We have several biblical passages that give some information to just what the world will be like under the rule and reign of this satanically empowered world leader.  Both indicate that he will have power and authority over the entire world, and that he will attempt to destroy God's Holy people, (the Jewish nation and people), and will in fact destroy many other people through war.

He will cause deceit to prosper, and he will consider himself superior. When they feel secure, he will destroy many and take his stand against the Prince of princes. Yet he will be destroyed, but not by human power. Daniel 8:25 NIV
It was given power to wage war against God’s holy people and to conquer them. And it was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation. All inhabitants of the earth …

Germany, France to launch multilateralism alliance

Prophecy Sign:  The power blocs of the Tribulation, (Revived Rome, Gog of Magog, Kings of the East)
Last days bible prophecy indicates that there will be a number of geopolitical power blocs during the time of the Tribulation.  We of course know that the future Antichrist will establish a form of global world government that will enforce the 'Mark of the Beast' identification system, (Revelation 13:16-17), along with an Orwellian surveillance system that will have the ability to watch over and control every person on the planet, (Revelation 13:7).  However, other alliances will also be in evidence during this same time period.

Prophecy tells us that a powerful nation will come down from the farthest points north of Israel and join forces with the Islamic nations surrounding Israel in an effort to both destroy Israel and to take possession her riches.

You will come from your place in the far north, you and many nations with you, all of them riding on horses, a great horde, a mig…
