There are a flurry of events unfolding daily around this world which are forming a “perfect storm” that will no doubt without any warning immediately transform the world as it has never been before; and when this happens, we can be assured that we are in the last throes of time.
However, it will not the end of the world as Jesus also warned us to saying: “Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, ‘I am Christ;’ and shall deceive many” (Matthew 24:4–5).
“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)
“All these are the beginning of sorrows” (Matthew 24:8).
“Say not thou, What is the cause that the former days were better than these? For thou dost not inquire wisely concerning this” (Ecclesiastes 7:10).
Jesus says: “These things must come to pass” (Luke 21:9).
“For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.
And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. [BUT HE THAT SHALL ENDURE UNTO THE END, THE SAME SHALL BE SAVED].
And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come” (Matthew 24:7-14).
“And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death. And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake. But there shall not an hair of your head perish. In your patience possess ye your souls.
And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh. Then let them which are in Judæa flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto. For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled” (Luke 21:16-22).
“And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.
And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;
Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.
And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory” (Luke 21:24-27).
