First, I wish to state that I do not predict the time nor day of Jesus Christ's return, as stated in Matthew 24:36. However, Jesus also
stated that we should understand the times and seasons. Verse 37- states "But as the days of Noe were , so shall also the coming of the Son of man be".
So what are conditions like today? Should we be concerned?
As such, I would like to present information on what is occurring, and prophecies being fulfilled.
In Revelation , when the 6th seal is opened, the king of the east/north is prophecied to march a 200 million man army to the middle east. Who would have thought thirty years ago, let alone 2,000 years ago, that China would rise to such extent, both economically and militarily. Before such forces can "march", infrastructure must be established, a way must be found to move soldiers, supplies, armaments etc. In 2012, China announced and started working on a new silk road to the Middle East, and to a lesser extent to Europe and Africa. China has now allocated $1 trillion dollars toward this project.
A great falling away has been occurring for many years now.
The Sanhedrin was established in 2005, the first time in some 2000 years.
In August 2016, the Sanhedrin voted their first high priest in some 2000 years, Rabbi Baruch Kahane. Quote:
All utensils have been made, and practice sacrifices have occurred. There has been anticipation of sacrificing on the Temple Mount itself. Watch for the daily sacrifices to begin, as 3 ½ years later the Abomination of Desolation will occur, the tribulation truly begins.
"Rabbi Baruch Kahane as the next Kohen Gadol (high priest)..... If the political conditions should change, allowing the Jews access to the Temple Mount, they will be required by Torah law to bring the sacrifices. Rabbi Kahane is confident that if that should happen, Temple service could begin in less than one week."
Mikhail Gorbachev has warned the world as arming continues.
Russia is continuing to develop its military, and space program, as well as S400, hypersonic missiles, and supercavitating nuclear torpedoes. These missles are touted to fly 10-20 times the speed of sound. The claim is that the missles are indefensible, thus raising instability in the world.
Prophecies concerning persecution in the latter days. Christianity is now the most persecuted religion in the world.
The nations are perplexed, upheavals are growing in nation after nation. Economist and other magazines have written articles explaining dozens of riots, of economic problems. It will continue to increase.
Europe is in distress, leaders are stating the EU could collapse. Besides NATO, another army is also being developed, stresses between southern/northern countries continue, immigration is still a hot topic, and extremist parties are increasing in Germany and some say Austria. Watch Europe closely.
The door has been cracked open, there have been calls for a temporary world government to oversee the Covid-19 pandemic.
We cannot predict the exact time when Christ will return, but world events are shaping up, and when the daily sacrifices start, we can know the seven years have started. Until then, I implore that we continue to watch events closely.
