Busy Americans hardly have time to discern between mainstream media lies and conservative deeper examinations into the truth. It follows, that those who read the signs of the times against the Bible’s prophetic narrative are a much smaller contingent of people.
While some of our best political, economic, cultural, and military analysts may hit the nail on the head at times, if you want to know exactly what is going to happen in our world – that would be found in Biblical prophecy.
Without the prophetic, we tend to build fears based on bias, blather, and fluff. For example, the prophetic assures us that the planet does not end because of global warming.
Also, when the world is cast into wars and rumors of wars no one will care if your car consumes gas or if it is completely electric.
It is Biblical Illiteracy Not Just Illiteracy that Brings Us to Our knees.
Today’s politicians, academics, and the best minds of the day, completely miss the obvious. Youngsters are leaving high school and college with a head full of social indoctrination and the reading skills of 4th graders – if they’re lucky.
Why wouldn’t these almost totally ignorant kids believe it, when they are told America is founded on racism. And why wouldn’t they join the nearest group of rioters to act out their indignation?
The intellectuals join the rioters because they are indoctrinated. The ignorant join because they believe the indoctrinated. It is a perfect example of the blind guiding the blind.
The exponentially increasing ranks of reprobates are easy to understand in a world of wishy-washy kids, fully indoctrinated adults, and a backslidden, weak, and embarrassed group of people we know as the Christians.
It is Christ himself who adds people to the army of reprobates. He promised it, and in our time, we can see it fulfilled. To wit:
“I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.” (Rev 3:15-16)
The Long List of Last Days Prophecies We Foolishly Ignore
There are a dozen explicit signs or warnings on the conditions that prevailed prior to the second coming of Christ.
One of the most powerful encompasses or condenses all the others.
“Verily I say unto you, all these things shall come upon this generation.” (Mt 23:36)
This may rightly be called the convergence prophecy because when all 12 prophecies converge you will understand that you are in that generation.
Christ was not speaking of his own generation because the other signs were far from being fulfilled at that time.
There are many lists of the Biblical signs of the second coming, most come from the New Testament, but they range from Genesis to Revelation.
Recently, Prophecy News Watch published an article titled “How Close Is the Second Coming?” which outlines 12 major prophecies that today, are rolling down the pike at breakneck speed.
Three Signs in this Very Hour That Augment the Biblical Prophecies
There is a lot going on across the globe, but these three signs are general and pertain to America, Israel, and the World at Large. While they are yet to fully un-roll, they can be triggers for far more serious and dangerous global events. Let’s see.
The Trump Factor
Millions of Americans feel a renewed hope when former President Trump hints that he intends to run again in 2024. Seeing all the great things he accomplished during his administration creates an inspiring expectation. After seeing Biden’s dismal showing in his first 100 days in office, it is a bright white light at the end of a dark liberal tunnel we never wanted to enter, to begin with.
The Trump hatred still festers and the vexation, the vitriol, and the willingness to ruin his life are toxic.
It seems the globalists have decided to make the world great, which leaves little room for a renewal of America’s greatness.
New York’s State Attorney General Letitia James is breathing fire and brimstone to try Trump in Criminal, not Civil court for alleged tax break irregularities, and loan questions. She has been seen repeatedly vowing to prosecute Trump and does not hide her hatred and contempt from anyone who will give her audience.
What has this got to do with prophecy?
If this is the time when the prophetically promised revealing of the antichrist is supposed to happen, then the powers of evil must be sustained.
If President Trump should be convicted of a felony, he could not run for president again.
If the left would cheat Trump out of his rightful place in 2020 – no one knows what they might attempt in 2024.
Israel and the Palestinians – The Trigger for War
Prior to the return of the Jewish people in 1948, Palestinians had no major capital, they had no central government, and they were largely nomadic. Jealousy seems to have instantly made them a world-recognized nation. But nothing could be further from the truth.
These are two simple, but mostly ignored truths. Palestine does not have a rightful claim to Israel. Israel from ancient days belongs to the Jews.
Another simple truth is that Israel was dwelling peacefully until Hamas used Gaza to lob some 3,000 rockets into the nation.
Not so simple is the prophetic warning that when war breaks out full scale against Israel – you can count the days for much worse portents.
Israel’s enemies are probing Joe Biden’s weakness and Israel’s resolve, but their biggest mistake is that they are tempting God. When they come after Israel in full regalia, they are marking their own days.
Worldwide Economic Collapse Including the United States
When the world’s last and worst dictator is revealed in a very short time there will be many amazing qualities about him that everyone will notice. The most amazing quality is that he will seem to understand the economies of the world. He will hold back inflation, pull third-world countries out of despair, and stimulate the world economies beyond all expectations.
In fact, it is by means of stabilizing a crashing world economy that he gains power. Those before him like, Hitler, Mussolini, Hirohito, Mao, and a long list of others thought they could bring the world together by force. Antichrist knows the human heart and the weakness of the human condition and can bring the globe into full sway by means of a new and untried economic system
Here is the sad part. He totally succeeds, but after only a few short years the world is plunged into war and what follows is the most disastrous time in history.
America’s economy is now teetering under the Biden Administration and will only get worse as other nations also fall in a domino effect.
Much more than just high gas prices, everything will cost more, and then most things will not even be available.
Is the Cup of Offences Full in America?
One of the most wicked ancient nations was the Amorites. While they were eventually judged and eliminated on the world scene, an interesting footnote about them appears early on, in the very first book of the bible. Abraham was told he would be long dead before God dealt with the Amorites because they had not quite filled the cup with their offenses and iniquities.
“And thou shalt go to thy fathers in peace; thou shalt be buried in a good old age. But in the fourth generation they shall come hither again: for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full.” (Ge 15:15-16)
God’s patience and the fact that he gives all people time to get it right is revealed in this passage, but it also raises a question for all nations.
Today the question is for us.
Are America’s offenses and iniquities now full?
Does cancel culture idiocy, encroaching socialism, moral depravity, transgenderism, homosexuality, and aborted human beings by the millions qualify as the answer to that question?
Here is the answer – yes it does.
This was once the message for the city of Jerusalem, does it not now seem like the message for America – you decide!
“Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves.” (Isa 28:15)
