Reflecting on the series of unprecedented events that unfolded in 2020 and continuing on into 2021, do you sense a shifting in the world around you? Do you feel as though life as you have always known it to be, is about to change? Whether you are a believer in Jesus Christ and have a general understanding of prophecy or not, you have to admit that what has transpired in the last ten months is unbelievable! Just a year ago today, we would never have imagined that a virus would ravage the entire world leaving many in fear and isolation, forced mask mandates by tyrannical governments, closed churches, closed business, a plummeting economy, riots, lawlessness, and violence in our American streets and cities. We would never have imagined that all of these extraordinary events would be used as a tool by the enemy to undermine the will and voice of the American people, creating the greatest election fraud in the history of our nation. We discovered that the Deep State was much deeper and wider than we ever thought. It wasn’t a swamp, but an ocean.
All this to say, as followers of Jesus Christ and bereans of His word, this should not at all surprise us or cause us to despair. As it was written in the ancient scriptures, these times were foretold long ago as being part of the epoch of the end times and similar to the days of Noah. Prophetically speaking though, what is different today than in times past? For two thousand years, the church has anxiously awaited the return of the King. How do we know that the return of Christ is closer now than ever before and very likely to occur in our lifetime? Because of the major convergence of end time prophecies that have emerged in our most recent history, starting with the greatest super sign, Israel, I don’t believe we are in the last days; I believe we are in the last hours. Let’s embark on some of these end time signs together.
The major super sign that indicates we are quickly approaching the last days and the soon return of Christ, is the existence of Israel. It is important to note that all other end time signs hinge on this one sign. In other words, without the existence of Israel, these signs could not occur. The very fact that Israel is a nation today, after being expelled from her land by the Romans over 2000 years ago, is absolutely miraculous! What other nation or people in history have ever been removed from their homeland, scattered among foreign nations all over the world, persecuted and almost wiped off the face of the earth, and then able to return to their homeland with their language, culture, heritage, and religion intact after thousands of years? As prophesied in the scriptures the nation of Israel was reborn in one day on May 14, 1948! Consider these verses written by the prophets over 2600 years ago:
“Therefore behold, the days are coming,” says the Lord, “that it shall no more be said, ‘The Lord lives who brought up the children of Israel from the land of Egypt,’ but, ‘The Lord lives who brought up the children of Israel from the land of the north and from all the lands where He had driven them.’ For I will bring them back into their land which I gave to their fathers.” (Jeremiah 16:14-15)
“Then the Lord will scatter you among all peoples, from one end of the earth to the other…” (Deut. 28:64)
“Then say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “Surely I will take the children of Israel from among the nations, wherever they have gone, and will gather them from every side and bring them into their own land; and I will make them one nation in the land, on the mountains of Israel;” (Ezekiel 37:21-22)
“Who has heard of such as this? Who has seen such things? Can a country be born in a day or a nation be delivered in an instant? Yet as soon as Zion was in labor, she gave birth to her children.” (Isaiah 66:8)
This prophetic timepiece must be in place before the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. We are soon approaching Israel’s 73rd anniversary of being a reestablished nation, and many scholars believe that the rebirth of Israel was the catalyst that began the prophetic time clock for these final days and for this final generation. Could these next seven years mark the upcoming Great Tribulation time which will then usher in the Messiah’s return on Israel's 80th year? The bible describes the length of a generation as this: “The days of our life are seventy years, and if by reason of strength they are eighty years, yet their boast is only labor and sorrow; For it is soon cut off, and we fly away.” (Psalm 90:10). Time will tell.
As mentioned above, all other end time signs are contingent on the reestablishment of Israel as a nation. Some of the other signs that are now on superdrive since the rebirth of Israel are geopolitical signs, increased instability in the Mideast, and increased anti-semitism (wars and rumors of wars, nation rising against nation, and kingdom against kingdom). Since the transition of President Trump to Biden just two days ago, tensions among the nations surrounding Israel are mounting and increasing as we speak. These are the same exact nations that are described as attacking Israel in the coming Ezekiel 38 and 39 War!

The bible also tells us that there will be increased signs or “birth pangs'' of natural disasters on a massive global level, that will come upon us like a woman in trevail. Natural events such as earthquakes, famines, severe weather, volcanic activity, epidemics, and signs in the heavens etc. will increase in intensity and frequency in the last days. (Luke 21:11) You can check out this most recent video on the earthquake activity going on right now in South America: (https://youtu.be/gnwYaHimHJI).
In addition, other great signs of the last days are the exponential advancements in global technology, digital currency, total corruption and depravity, lawlessness, and strong spiritual deception and delusion. You can see for yourself how this has manifested in the United States this last year alone. With the emergence of 5G technology, talks of implantable chips that will eventually be able to read your mind and change your memories (Neurolink by Elon Musk, https://youtu.be/ksX-7hS94Yo ), vaccines laced with nanotechnology and DNA manipulation, it all seems so far fetched and science fiction, but it is completely real and aligns very closely to the last days that are described in the book of Revelation and that of the Days of Noah (https://youtu.be/eBVmk4SKB-8 ). We are also witnessing the obvious corruption in both political parties, compromised leaders, the rise of Communism in America, and the burning down of our cities and history by paid domestic terrorist groups like ANTIFA and BLM. We can see through the blatant lies that so many of our friends and family, inside and outside the church, have fallen prey to. This is because they have not studied the Word of God and lack the discernment to see the difference between truth from the lies; they are under a strong satanic delusion as foretold would be the case in the last days. Hosea 4:6 says “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me.”
“And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.”(Matthew 24:10-12)
More specific prophecies that will emerge during the time of the Great Tribulation will be the revealing of the Antichrist, which will come after the Holy Spirit is taken out of the way and the Church or “Bride of Christ” is Raptured out of this world (so don’t believe the news when they say it is alien abduction or that the earth is cleansing herself; see Rock Harbor prophecy update https://youtu.be/th-dHoOFvEk ); the Mark of the Beast (I believe will be related to the the current vaccine with a digital tracking system and chip), the 7 Year Peace Treaty with Israel, made possible by the Antichrist; and the rebuilding of the Third Jewish Temple. In Matthew 24:33, Jesus responds to his disciples by saying, “So you also, when you see all these things, know that it is near—at the doors! Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away until all these things take place (https://youtu.be/CCFJJ57WUKs ).
I could literally write a book on all the signs that are being fulfilled in our lifetime, and most astonishingly, how they are all converging at the same time. But for now, I’d love to recommend The Non-Prophet’s Guide to the End Times by Todd Hampson. It was such an easy read and provided a wealth of information in understanding the times we are living in. Other great resources for end times related information are www.ithasbeenwritten.com,
Everyday the prophecies of the bible are leaping off the pages of scripture and it is incredible that we are the generation that has been placed here to witness all these events unfolding right before our eyes. It is by His good pleasure that we have been called to be the salt and light in this last generation for such a time as this. As those of us who have that blessed hope and long for His appearance, we don’t claim to know the day or hour, but we can examine the times and seasons. The Lord commands us to be watchful and awake so that we will not be caught off guard, but ready when he comes. It can be surmised like this: When you see the signs that Christmas is coming, you know that Thanksgiving is even nearer. So too, as we see the day approaching, let us stay watchful, vigilant, and sober-minded. Let us purpose in our hearts to share the gospel with urgency to any and everyone who will listen while there is still time. Do you have this hope and assurance of Salvation? You can! God knows your heart - Admit you are a sinner in need of the Savior, believe that Jesus died for you and rose again on the third day and now offers you the gift of new life, call upon His name, and be saved in Jesus name! He will begin to transform you and renew your mind from the inside out if you will receive Him into your life today!
