Make no mistake about it! Whether you want to believe it or not, it does not matter, but Jesus Christ is returning on His Second Coming. This cataclysmic event could very well be in our lifetime. To emphasize this warning, nothing can stop the return of Jesus Christ to establish His world-ruling government on this Earth. Absolutely nothing whatsoever!
One-third of the Holy Bible is prophecy. Several prophecies have already been fulfilled, some are being fulfilled in our time, and there are some mindboggling events yet to unfold in the universe.
The books of Daniel, Amos, Malachi, Zephaniah, Zechariah, Joel, Matthew, Mark, Luke and Revelation contain numerous prophecies that paint scenarios that provide evidence of the times we are living in at the moment. For example, Matt. 24: known as the Olivet Prophecy tells us in the last days “ For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. 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.7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.8 All these are the beginning of sorrows (or birth pangs).”
Are you observant enough to notice that some of these events are already happening? In fact, the critics will tell you they have been going on for millennia, but what they are not telling you is the Bible says they will occur like birth pangs; just like a woman giving birth. The birth pains go and come but get more intense each time they come around. Likewise, these events will happen in that manner.
Look at verse 10 “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.”
The trouble is our violence-plagued societies cannot distinguish right from wrong any more so when they see sin or evil they can’t even recognize it for what it is worth.
2 Timothy 3 speaks of the perilous or dangerous times in the last days. But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.”
We need to keep our eyes open to “watch and pray,” for we knoweth not the hour when our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ shall come. Watch the signs around us “So likewise you, when you shall see all these things, know that it (the second coming) is near, even at the doors,” (Matt. 24:33). It does not matter what you believe, the fact is nothing can stop the return of Jesus Christ! For more on this subject, download our FREE booklet Evidence of the End Times.
