Rant for Jesus-Signs of the Times, October 2020

Look around you. Can you see the signs of the times for the Lord’s return to gather His church/people and remove them from this earth? In 2020 I have sensed these signs all around us. I believe we are in the beginning of sorrows.

How do I know what the signs are? I read God’s Word. If you don’t read His Word you won’t know what is to come. The Bible tells us, to give us hope as well as to warn us.

Jesus tells His disciples what the signs are in Scripture.

Matthew 24:3-8 Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?”  And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you.  For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.

There have been wars and rumors of wars with nation’s rising up against nation for a long time now. In 2020 we have experienced the world’s pandemic (pestilence) of Covid 19. Many thousands have died and millions have had the disease and it continues to this day. There have been famines in the world particularly in Africa because of Covid 19. Even in the United States people by the thousands have lined up in food lines. There have been many earthquakes. Just recently there were a great number of earthquakes in California in a 24 hour period. But as the Lord says, the end is not yet.

Matthew 24:9-14 “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake.  And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another.  Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.  But he who endures to the end shall be saved.  And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.

Indeed the followers of Jesus and supporters of Israel are hated by Iran. They want nothing more than to kill us, to hurt us, to wipe us off the face of the earth. Iran is not alone in their wishes. Palestinians and many others hate us as well. Palestinians and Iran particularly hate Israel and kill them as often as they can.

As President Trump met with the leaders of Israel, Bahrain and the UAE this week in September, 2020, signing a historical peace deal between Israel in Washington D. C., Palestine was firing rockets into Israel to protest the deal.

In Israel, one side of the TV showed the signing of the peace deal and the other side showed the warning of rocket fire towards Ashdod and Asheklon, Israel.

In 2020 lawlessness has grown to a fever pitch. There are murders of innocent ones to include the men and women of the police. There’s rioting, stealing from and burning of businesses. It’s been going on for months in the United States. The State governments it’s happening in, are impotent and will not control it. Many don’t even get arrested and the one’s that do are turned loose immediately. They don’t even prosecute the ones doing it. They have turned a blind eye. The ones doing this have hate filled hearts, love has definitely grown cold in them. The lawlessness is extreme and ongoing. After lawlessness Jesus says, the gospel will be taught in all the world and the end will come.

We do not know the day or the hour of His return, but we do know the signs. The Lord has given us beforehand, the signs of His coming. I’m listening for the trumpet to sound!!! I’m longing for His appearing. Ready yourselves, for He is coming on a day and hour we do not know.

Matthew 25:13 Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming.

Get your heart right with the Lord. For when that day comes, the door will shut. If He isn’t your Savior, you may knock but Jesus will tell you, He does not know you.

Matthew 25:12 But he answered and said, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, I do not know you.’

Don’t let that be you. Accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior today. Serve and obey Him while you wait for His return. You will never regret it.

God bless. Heal the brokenhearted, bind up all their wounds.
