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.
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.
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.
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.
