The End Times has Suddenly Come Upon the World

Biblical prophecies from ancient times that have forewarned of major events and conditions in the Last Days are now coming true in our generation.

The recent fulfillment of many of these prophetic events is the primary sign that the Second Coming of Christ is near!

The Sign of the Blood Moons

The prophet Joel predicted thousands of years ago that in the End Times the Lord would “show wonders in the heavens, and in the earth, blood and fire and pillars of smoke.” He also said, “The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord” (Joel 2:30-31). In the sections on World War III this prophecy was seen to be associated with a coming nuclear holocaust, which will take place during the Great Tribulation or the last 3.5 years of this age. Some have also seen in this prophecy a correlation to the presence of blood moons, which are astronomical phenomena associated with full lunar eclipses...[more]

The Reality of End Times Prophecy

The power and truth of prophecy can now be seen through the fulfillment of dozens of predictions that were written within the Bible literally thousands of years ago.

The Book of Revelation

God is showing us the truth in the Bible in the End Times through prophecy, because the time remaining for this world is very short.  The kingdom of Heaven is at hand, and now is the time to repent and believe.  All those who call upon the name of the Lord will be saved.

God is in Complete Control

The Lord is orchestrating the events of the End Times to bring about the judgment of the world and the Return of Christ, just as the prophets predicted.

The Ancient of Days, by William Blake

Principles of Prophecy in the End Times

The Bible actually tells us how to recognize true prophecy from God and how to logically interpret it.  These basic principles are important to grasp before trying to understand End Times prophecy, because they help prevent false conclusions or mistakes in interpretation through taking verses out of context.

Is Prophecy Real?

Painting of a prophetThe Bible is much more than just a collection of stories or a record of ancient history.  It is the only book ever written that contains the true Word of God.  No other book can make this claim, because the Bible is the only one that actually has evidence that proves its validity.  Prophecy is the one thing that separates the truth of the Bible from every other religious book.  The God of the Universe has provided incontrovertible evidence of His existence and power through literally hundreds of prophecies, which have come true...[more]

The Test of a Prophet

Moses breaking the Tablets, TissotThe Bible provides very real guidelines concerning prophets and prophecy.  The Lord told the first great prophet, Moses, that there would be many prophets coming after him, all of whom would let His people know about future events before they occurred.  However, not just anyone could be a prophet.  For this reason, God established a test of a prophet to let everyone know whether someone claiming to be one was really sent from God or whether they were actually a false prophet speaking of their own accord...[more]

The Purpose of a Prophet

The prophet Ezekiel, MichelangeloThe prophets of God had an important purpose beyond merely predicting the future.  The purpose of a prophet was far more important than being just soothsayers or fortunetellers.  They demonstrated the reality of God by providing absolute proof of His power through the fulfillment of their prophecies.  They also encouraged people to believe the Lord and change their lives to avoid judgment or bad consequences...[more]

Visions of the Future

Apostle John on Patmos, Titian.pngAlthough the majority of Christian churches today almost completely ignore the prophecies within the Bible, about 25% of it is prophetic in nature.  In other words, about one verse in every four contained visions of the future at the time it was written down.  Many of these prophecies have already been fulfilled in times past; however, a significant number of prophecies still deal with future events or with things that have recently occurred.  Incredibly, God has provided us with a roadmap of prophecies about the End Times, which are just now coming to pass...[more]

Israel in the End Times

The nation of Israel is the primary sign of the Last Days.  The prophecies of the End Times require that Israel be reborn as a nation before any of the other prophecies even become relevant.  For centuries the Jewish people were scattered among the nations without a homeland.  However, in 1948 the rebirth of Israel as an independent nation in the Middle East became the indisputable signal that the End Times has come upon us.

Israel; The Key to End Times Prophecy

Jerusalem Lights at NightThe prophecies about Israel are the key to understanding everything that is happening in our world today.  More End Times prophecies deal with the nation of Israel than any other subject.  In the Last Days, Israel will become the main focal point for all the major events that will occur before Christ Returns.  From God's perspective, Israel is brought back to their land to judge them and eventually save them at the end.  From man's perspective, the nation of Israel will become the main trouble spot that starts World War III...[more]

The Blessing and Curse

Moses Breaking the Tablets, RembrandtTo understand the prophecies of Israel and how they relate to our generation, we need to first go back many centuries, to a time when Israel was just becoming a nation for the first time.  This is where we will find an incredible prophecy concerning the future of Israel, which was written down by Moses even before they entered the Promised Land after their Exodus from Egypt.  This prediction of blessing and curse would govern Israel's life for thousands of years..[more]

The Scattering of Israel

Flight of the Prisioners, Artist: TissotThe history of ancient Israel was repeatedly punctuated by periods of great prosperity if they followed the Lord to times of extreme trouble if they did not.  Moses predicted that eventually the Jewish people would so turn away from God that the Lord would cause the scattering of Israel among the nations (Deut. 28:25).  Over the centuries prophet after prophet warned the people of this potential fate.  The first part of the nation to experience this severe judgment was the Northern Kingdom of Israel at the hands of the Assyrian army.  Amazingly, these prophecies help to explain what is happening to Israel centuries later in the End Times...[more]

The Scattering of Judah and Jerusalem

Juan de la Corte - The Burning of Jerusalem by Nebuchadnezzar’s ArmyAfter the Northern Kingdom of Israel was destroyed by the Assyrians you would think that the Southern Kingdom of Judah would have learned and turned to God for help.  The prophets Jeremiah and Ezekiel even encouraged them and warned of a similar fate if they turned from trusting God.  However, they too went down into even deeper depths of evil, so great that the Lord brought the Babylonian Empire against them.  In a series of attacks, the Babylonian army destroyed the Southern Kingdom, which led to the scattering of Judah and Jerusalem, followed by 70 years of captivity in Babylon…[more]

The Final Scattering of Israel

The destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans in 70AD -- a painting by David Roberts (1796-1849)The importance of understanding the prophetic scriptures was never better illustrated than in what happened to the Jewish people when God stood before them as a humble man instead of the expected conquering king.  The blindness of the religious leaders to the fulfillment of the greatest prophetic event of all time would prove to have earthshaking consequences for the continued existence of the Jews in Palestine.  In fact, the final scattering of Israel was about to take place and it would be predicted by Jesus himself…[more]

The Regathering of Israel

Map of Israel with Satellite image, WikipediaWith all the prophecies relating to the doom and gloom of a disobedient Israel it’s easy to come away with the feeling that all hope was lost for God’s chosen people (see the previous prophecies concerning Israel).  For centuries on end Jerusalem was controlled by Gentile powers just as Jesus had predicted; however the regathering of Israel was also predicted…[more]

Why was Israel Gathered in Unbelief?

Originating Countries of Immigrating JewsThe predictions of Moses concerning the rebirth of Israel and their regathering back to the land pose an interesting conundrum (see Deut. 30:1-4).  Given that Moses definitely said that Israel will become a nation again only after they repent and after the Lord returns to regather them, we are forced to ask how this prophecy relates to the nation of Israel today.  Modern Israel is a nation gathered in unbelief in the End Times, but not yet in repentance and faith in Christ…[more]

Prophecies of 1948

The flag of Israel in Yad LaShiryon, Latrun, IsraelThe key to what is happening to Israel today rests in the incredible prophecies of 1948 made by the Old Testament prophets, especially Ezekiel.  The book that bears Ezekiel's name is a tremendous apocalyptic writing of almost mystical character, but full of the power of God.  The predictions of future events that are described within its pages are rich with metaphors and symbolic visions, all of them flowing to the beat of a loving but jealous God who wants to bring Israel back to Him.  Many of Ezekiel’s most important predictions relate directly to the amazing prophecies of the rebirth of Israel in 1948...[more]

Restored with Fury

Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, WikipediaFor a full understanding of all the prophecies of Israel's rebirth and how they fit together, we need to consider one important passage from the book of Ezekiel.  This set of verses shows us that God predicted Israel would be restored with fury poured out, and this reflects exactly what happened in the years before and during 1948.  Ezekiel chapter 20 may be the most important prophetic statement concerning Israel in the entire Bible.  It is a picture of Israel's past, present, and future, but it predicts that the Jews would come back into their land in the last days coupled with fury and judgment from God...[more]

Trembling and Fear

1948 Arab Israeli War, Arab attack paths, WikipediaMany Old Testament prophets predicted the eventual rebirth of Israel at the end of the age.  Ezekiel, Isaiah, and Jeremiah told of a time that Israel would be reborn in the land in unbelief.  They also foresaw with great detail the major events and world conditions that the nation would experience before Christ returns.  The predictions tell of a time of trembling and fear for the Jewish people and not of peace...[more]

Success Teetering on the Brink

Israel produce market, WikimediaIn the relatively short period of time since becoming a nation, Israel has developed into one of the most prosperous nations in the Middle East.  With a population of only a small fraction of the surrounding Arab states, it has nevertheless grown into a consumer, military, and technological powerhouse.  However, this success is constantly teetering on the brink of disaster due to the triple threats of war, terrorism, and economic boycotts.  Incredibly, the Bible even predicted this situation for Israel the last days [more].

The Palestinian Problem

Gaza war, 2012, Jabalia house destruction, WikipediaSince Israel became a nation in 1948, nearly all of their troubles have somehow been linked to the Palestinian problem.  The plight of the Palestinians and their almost constant conflict with the Jews have become major international concerns, initiating countless negotiations, peace conferences, and UN resolutions.  This nearly intractable issue also has an extremely volatile fuse that often threatens Israel with terrorism, uprisings, rocket attacks, and full scale war.  It has even threatened the world with global conflict many times.  Amazingly, the prophets of old accurately predicted the Palestinian problem...[more]

Daniel’s Prophecy of the Seventy Weeks

The Archangel Gabriel, by Titian - WikipediaCould this brief passage in Daniel chapter 9 actually be the most amazing prophecy in the Bible?  The angel Gabriel told Daniel that Israel has a time limit to come to faith in Christ - Seventy Weeks.  He also predicted the exact date that the Messiah would come, in addition to the fact that Jesus would be killed after he revealed himself, and even foretold events within the last 7 years of this age...[more]

The Start Date of the Seventy Weeks

Archangel Gabriel, Tsalenjikha frescoThe prophet Daniel actually predicted precisely how long it would be in days before the Messiah was revealed.  In this incredible prediction, he also stated exactly when the countdown to the Coming of Christ would begin, and that date was also in Daniel’s future.  In this section on Daniel’s amazing prophecy, we identify the start date of the Seventy Weeks…[more]

The Time of Messiah’s Coming Predicted

Jesus on Palm SundayThe time of Messiah's coming was predicted by the prophet Daniel with such precision that he literally narrowed it down to the very day that Christ would reveal himself to the nation of Israel.  Daniel's prophecy of the Seventy Weeks given hundreds of years before this event not only predicted the First Coming of Christ, but also broadly outlined the chronology of the last days before Christ's Return...[more]

The Final Seven Years of this Age

Victor Mikhailovich Vasnetsov - The Antichrist on a White HorseDaniel's prophecy of the Seventy Weeks also predicts the final seven years of this age, which will occur just before the Return of Christ.  According to the Angel Gabriel, the Seventieth Week will be inaugurated by the signing of a covenant or treaty with many people.  This event signals the rise of the Antichrist and leads into a time of trouble so great that Jesus said no other period in history would be comparable to it...[more]
