There are signs all around in the world, shouting out to us telling us that something is going to happen. It seems as if nature is trying to tell us something and people can tell that the world is not right. People realize that something is going to happen, they just don’t realize what exactly will. Have you ever wondered what is going on in this world? Hopefully today I will be able to explain what exactly is happening in this world.
In Matthew 24 Jesus’ disciples asked Him how they would know when the end of the world would be here. Jesus responded with a description of different signs that they would see, before I tell a few of those signs I also want to mention that Jesus warned His disciples not to be deceived, He told them this three times, so it must be important.
The signs which Jesus gave were wars and rumor and wars, pestilence, famines, earthquakes in diverse places (aka in places that don’t normally have earthquakes). The stars shall fall, the moon shall be as blood, and the sun shall be darkened. The past two came to past in the 1800’s the last one took place in 1780 and everyone thought that the world was coming to an end, but those that studied knew that these were the beginning of the signs that Jesus talked about.
We have always had these things going on in the world such as earthquakes and famines etc. It is like a pregnancy, at first the contractions aren’t bad, but then they get closer and closer together and more hard and fast and more of them, then the baby comes. This is like the signs of the times, there is more of these signs and they come harder on the world than ever before, and the signs are faster and coming more frequent! That means that the Lord is soon to arrive, just like when the contractions get so bad finally the baby arrives.
These signs we have seen far wide, all we ever see on the news now a days is wars and rumor of wars, famines, earthquakes, fires, and bad weather in general are taking place all over the world and in places we would never even imagine! The angels are holding the winds of strife back, but not for much longer. This all points to the end of the world, it all points to Jesus’ soon return to take His children home to heaven with Him. It means no more sin, no more suffering, no more death! Yes these signs are everywhere.
Many people fear the end of the world, they are afraid of what is to come, they don’t want to die they are afraid to die. Those who love the Lord and are looking forward to His coming, do not fear His coming, they are waiting anxiously to leave this wicked world. They are not afraid to die, because they know that the next face that they will see is the Lord Himself.
The time is now, and the moment is now to prepare our hearts and minds for the coming of the Lord. There will come a time when we can not do this, so now is the time to get ready, the signs are all around us warning us that the Lord is about to make His move. Now is the time for revival and reformation.
We must not only work to prepare ourselves and to get our characters right with the Lord, but also to help and be a witness to others as well. Time is running short what with all the things that are happening in the news. The pope having all the religions uniting together and talk of the Sunday Law going into effect. Calling it a day to spend with your family. Things are only going to get worse, it is high time to awake out of sleep. We are nearer now than when we have ever been before. This world is not going to last much longer, and the doors of probation is about to close. Let us come to the Lord with fear and trembling, and also gratitude that He gave us His Son so that we can be made whole in Him.
I want to be ready for Jesus soon coming, don’t you?
