With the recent news of events in Syria, the internet is filled people prophesying the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. However, let us be reminded of when Jesus was on Mount Olives and his disciples yearned to know when he will be returning to earth.
“Tell us, when shall these things be? And what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?” (Matthew 24:3).
“And Jesus answered and said unto them, ‘Take heed that no man deceive you’” (Matthew 24:4).
What is the key sign?
Jesus said: “When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand)” (Matthew 24:15). “And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh” (Luke 21:20).
Let us not become swept away in this wave of false propheyings because Jesus also said: “And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many” (Matthew 24:6).
Current events unfolding in this world surrounding United States, Britain, France Russia, Iran, Syria and so on are events that must come to pass. In his own words our Lord and Savior said: “And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, [BUT THE END IS NOT YET]” (Matthew 24:6).
