Do we see anything like that happening today? Turkish President Erdogan tells his citizens that Muslims need to assert dominance over Jerusalem. Turkish Govenor declares that Turkey's forces would soon march into Jerusalem! So as you can see, this is very much on the table today! And with Donald Trump [being led by his Evangelical advisors] moving the US embassy to Jerusalem, this is going to anger Turkey and the Muslims even more. So keep watch for this sign, as it will be an indication that probation is about to end, the time of trouble will begin and Jesus will be about to return!
I Just love this sign, because it is clearly pointing to our day today, and it cannot be refuted by anyone. Throughout history we have had a slow and little increase in knowledge. Up until recently in history, the fastest form of transport was a horse. Now man can travel at hundreds of miles per hour, and cross the globe in a day! Technology has developed at a rapid pace, which has led to great improvements in computer power, scientific discoveries and the medical profession.

Just look at how much we have learned about the human body with things like DNA and Cellular Structures etc. And how about "running to and fro"? This is pointing specifically to our day with planes, trains, automobiles and the busyness of modern day life. We are definately running to and fro and have knowledge like no time before us. This Bible sign has a dual application.
During the "dark ages", for over years, knowledge of Biblical truths were surpressed by the Roman Catholic Church. God now has an end time remnant church with the FULL gospel truth to take to the world before the end comes, which was needed to fulfill the sign about taking the true gospel message to the whole world. Which you will read about further down the page.
Revelation Now this is a sign that most people miss! Have a think about it What needs to happen in order for the "beast system" to stop people from buying and selling if they refuse the mark? We need to have a worldwide financial system whereby everything bought and sold is through electronic means, not cash.
Historical Evidence - Daniel 2
Has there been any time in history where this could happen? Are WE living in a day where this could happen? Most certainly, yes! And the powers of this world are now trying to make cash obsolete, and are actively pushing pure electronic forms of payment, like "PayPal" and "Google Wallet" for instance.
Take a look at the news and you will see this being reported in different countries of the world. Sweden close to being a Cashless Society. Cash is Dead, are Credit Cards Next? Israel Leaders Pushing for a Cashless Society. Above is just a few examples of the major push throughout the world for a cashless society. We have the techonology to do this now, which in times past wasn't possible. And look at the financial turmoil around the world today. This will help in bringing in a "unified" currency to help make it possible to enforce the mark of the beast. Technology isn't the mark, but technology is needed for proper enforcement of it.
This is a SURE sign of the end times! Now many professed Christians today believe that the 'falling away' is something that will happen in the last days. But this is a wrong view, because the falling away began not long after the New Testament church and was completely fulfilled when the Roman Catholic Church took control and merged Christianity with Paganism, and punished anyone who did not bow to her so called 'authority' and false teachings. And that man of sin who was "revealed" to the world during the Protestant reformation is none other than the pope s of the Roman Catholic Church. See proof of who the man of sin is HERE.
So, the falling away has happened and the man of sin HAS been revealed. Therefore the second coming of Christ can happen and this shows we are living in the end times. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed. What was it like in Noah's day and Lot's day? We need to go to two other Bible verses to see what it was like. Genesis tells us that in Noah's day the "earth was filled with violence.
So violence prevailed in Noah's day and sexual immorality including homosexuality prevailed in Lot's day. And this would be a sign of the end times before Christ Jesus returns. So our question is, does violence and sexual immorality including homosexuality prevail in the world today? Very much so, yes! Not only does violence and fornication rage across the whole world, homosexuality has become a "norm".
Since , 29 countries have legalized homosexual marriage source. And there are more countries being added to this list all the time. Large rise in sexually transmitted diseases since in England source. Today, the world is FULL of violence and sexual immorality.

You only need turn the tv on and you will see violence, fornication and homosexuality everywhere. The cities of the world today are especially bad and are no longer safe places to be. What are we told in Jude ? We are told that what God did to Sodom was set forth as an example to us today. And what did God do to the people of Sodom? How about a rise in spiritualism and the occult in the world? Have we seen this? Well, just look at the television and movies today. It has invaded our lives like no other time before us.
And what is the cause of this? It is the false teaching of the immortality of the 'soul'. Spiritualism is also the cause of these ' near death experiences ' which Satan is deceiving more and more people with. Many people don't realize that spiritualism has also invaded the majority of churches around the world, due to this false teaching of the immortality of the soul. But the churches have embraced this false teaching of the immortal soul, which is another sign of the times we live in. See the truth HERE about what happens when we die.
Hosea This one has become a fairly recent phenomenon. During the last few years we have seen fish, birds and other animals die in huge numbers. Since , millions of fish have been turning up dead in lakes, rivers and the sea, with this deadly red tide partly to blame.
End of the world prophecy: ‘Harbingers of the end times ARE HERE’ claims preacher
Also, Birds have been dropping out of the sky in huge numbers. And we are seeing other unusual animal deaths all around the world. Including Bees and Bats dying in their millions. The Honey Bee crisis deepens as evidence shows there has been a dramatic increase in die offs.. The Rise of Jellyfish over the past few decades is a harbinger of the health of the world's oceans! The Oceans are on the Brink of a Catastrophe!
The book of Hosea not only applied to the nation of Israel. It also applies to our day and contains prophecies concerning the state of the world we live in today. So is this text from Hosea fulfilled in our day? Is it a sign of the end times? Is this being fulfilled in our day more than any other day before us? Most definately. Just look at all the natural disasters we are getting now every year. Tens and even hundreds of thousands of people are being wiped out from Tsunamis and floods, and men's hearts are certainly fearing what is happening to this world.
In America in , a record was set for the number of Federal Disaster Declarations given over a year. That number was In , that number was broken again, with 99 Disaster Declarations given, costing over 32 Billion Dollars. And produced another year of record breaking disasters. Robert Hartwig states We are really seeing things happening in this world now with regards to the fulfillment of Bible prophecy today. May - "US like a 'war zone' after tornadoes in 30 days! We are seeing an increase in volcanic activity worldwide. The scoffers love to bash this one, but from the evidence available, it is clear that earthquakes are not only increasing in frequency, but also appearing in more and more "diverse places", which the Bible predicted.
Remember, these signs are to intensify during the last days, and that is exactly what is happening with earthquakes.
New Zealand felt a record 32, earthquakes in - link. We had a 'millenium's worth' of earthquakes in just 2 years, during and source. Big earthquakes have doubled in compared to each year since source. A series of massive quakes within 2 days in prompted an earthquake expert to suggest that the earth is "cracking up" link As of June , there were around 3, earthquakes happening a month.
God is giving us plenty of warning through these events, and we will be without excuse if that day of Christ's return comes upon us like a thief in the night and catches us unaware. We need to heed the signs and get ready! Please see these amazing videos showing a graphical look into the earthquakes around the world. Christ said that there would be earthquakes in "diverse" places, and these amazing videos certainly fulfills that prophecy. This sign carries on from the "increase in knowledge" sign above.
But I wanted to separate it to show you that this sign alone reveals we are living in the last days. God tells Daniel to seal the book. In other words, to seal the prophecies contained within it. And that at the "time of the end" , the prophecies would be unsealed and we would know what they mean. So this alone confirms that we are living in the end times.
But taking all the other signs together will show us how close we are to the second coming of Christ Jesus, the Son of the living God, and the end of the world. Matthew , We've certainly had our fair share of false Christ's appearing around the world. Also, today we have many false religions proclaiming many ways to eternal life, like Roman Catholicism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, Folk Religions, Wicca, and many other 'new age' movements. With false prophets like the Pope, Muhammad, Krishna, Buddha, etc. We also have many false prophets and leaders in "Christian" churches, like the the prosperity gospel preachers and people like Oprah Winfrey leading these new age movements.
And millions of people have been sucked in and deceived by these 'false prophets'. There are also many who appear to be 'sheep leading the flock' but in fact are 'inwardly ravening wolves' leading the people to destruction. People like Rick Warren who preach just enough truth to lull the unlearned mind into following them into apostasy!
Yes, this sign has certainly been fulfilled. Please prayerfully seek the truth yourself, by studying the Word of God in the Bible. Is this sign being fulfilled in our day? There is an ecumenical movement today which we were told about in end times prophecy that is uniting the world in an effort to bring peace. Churches and faiths and political leaders are uniting like never before in an effort to bring peace to this world.
But this ecumenical movement is not of God, because we as God's people are not to unite with the world or any false religion Amos , 2 Corinthians , Revelation When they do declare "peace and safety" then destruction will come upon them 1 Thessalonians For nation shall rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom. Many people say that this isn't a sign of the end times, because there have been wars since the beginning. Yes there have been wars since the beginning, but when you look at the frequency and intensity of wars, then it's plain to see that this is a sign of the times we are living in.
During the 20th century alone, more people have been killed as a result of war than all previous centuries combined. Today, there are conflicts and wars raging all around the world Source. And in , armed conflicts greatly increased according to this report. So is war a sign for today? Of course is it. Jesus said Taking one sign like this on it's own will not prove we are living in the last days. All signs need to be fulfilled. Just look at the famine that has struck the world over the past 30 years. Thousands die everyday of starvation and according to this news article global starvation is spreading and increasing causing 1 Billion people to go hungry around the world.
Add to that the failed crops throughout the world because of extreme weather, and bees dying off in massive numbers, and we have a worldwide shortage of food on it's way. Not only that, we have the likes of Monsanto who are poisoning the crops that are left! The sad thing about this sign, is that the amount of food that is wasted in the developed world could feed the hungry!
So think about those in need next time you are about to fill up your shopping trolley with food that will be wasted. During the so-called End Times the Antichrist often stated to be many people from Adolf Hitler to Barack Obama to Donald Trump , depending on the vogue of the time will appear and stamp all over the planet and on the foreheads of everyone who wasn't whooshed away to heaven in the rapture , though some Christians call the rapture HERESY! For seven years there will be "tribulations," including war and famine.
In the end, God will win over Satan and good Christians everywhere will live happily ever after. Attempts to shoehorn historical events into being a version of the End Times usually fail because we are still here and Christians have never been teleported away in the rapture. Eschaton is the academic term for the End Times. Eschatology is the academic study of the End Times. A article in American Atheist noted that the Jehovah's Witnesses Watchtower Society has actually computed, several times, the date of the "Parousia": . The foundation of Israel in gave a major boost to the dispensationalist belief system; Israel's history of wars with its Arab neighbours did even more for it.
After the Six Day War in and the Yom Kippur War in , it seemed plausible to many fundamentalist Christians in the s that Mideast turmoil may well be paving the way for the Battle of Armageddon. Leaders of the movement such as Hal Lindsey claimed furthermore that the European Economic Community , which preceded the European Union , was a Revived Roman Empire, and would become the kingdom of the coming Antichrist or Beast.
A Roman Empire, of course, also figured in the New Testament writers' vision of the future. The fact that in the early s, there were erroneously thought to be seven nations in the European Economic Community was held to be significant; this aligned the Community with a seven-headed dragon in Revelation. This specific prophecy has required revision, but the idea of a Revived Roman Empire remains.
Eschatology: What the Bible Says Will Happen in End Times
The Antichrist was supposed to be the dictatorial leader of a " one world government ". He would promise peace to the world while leading Christians into apostasy , and impose a "one world money system" in which everyone had to have the Number of the Beast branded on them to buy or sell. Like the Roman emperors of old, he would force the world to unite in " one world religion ", and impose horrible martyrdoms on surviving Christians.
At some point after his appearance, a large number of Jews would convert to Christianity and preach the gospel after the Christians had been removed by the Rapture. Believers in the system therefore scanned the headlines wondering if various world leaders might be the Antichrist, and wondering whether Mideast violence might be a sign of Armageddon. They feared such things as Social Security numbers and UPC barcodes, fearing that these tax identification numbers may be precursors to the dangerous Number of the Beast, whose receipt destines one's soul to damnation.
The Antichrist has as his allies the Beast and the Whore of Babylon , mysterious figures who run an apostate church or false religion. A world ravaged by plague and turmoil turns to the Antichrist to lead it, and who promises to deliver it. Eventually, the Antichrist musters an army to attack Israel. Gog and Magog have something to do with it. At the climax of the story, the Battle of Armageddon , Jesus returns in the Second Coming and stops the fighting. The movement has spawned various timetables and countdowns to the apocalypse, whose general tendency can be summed up with the title of one of Lindsey's books, The s: Countdown to Armageddon.
The former Soviet Union played a large role in Lindsey's earlier interpretations; his later books understandably tone that down considerably, while new villains like Saddam Hussein take its place. The movement has strained relationships with conservative U. It should be obvious from the foregoing that there is nothing in the Biblical apocalypses that forces these particular interpretations. The Seventh-day Adventists have their own tradition of millennialism arising from the nineteenth century Millerite movement that is distinct from contemporary dispensationalism.
The prophecies have had to be revised several times in the light of changing current events. The whole belief system is often characterised by those who do not hold it, or who have abandoned it, as a mass paranoid delusion , full of ideas of reference that supposedly reveal the secret and sinister meaning that links unrelated events. End times speculations have occasionally been made the subject of political controversy, especially in the United States when conservative Christians seek national political office.
The implications of the prophecies that turmoil in the Middle East is inescapable, that nuclear war is predestined by Scripture, and that it will supernaturally lead to a divine utopia , give rise to some misgivings among unbelievers in the prophecies. James G.
