Our World Is Changing Fast


“There will be signs in the sun, … moon, and … stars; and … distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring.”

—Luke 21:25, emphasis added


·        The Sign of Global Tracking and Positioning: Revelation 13:16-17 says there will be technology capable of tracking the world’s population and commerce: He causes all … to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.


·        The Sign of Weapons of Mass Destruction: God has warned that at the end of the world mankind would be capable of destroying all life (Matthew 24:21-22). With our generation’s nuclear, biological, and chemical weapons it is possible and plausible to wipe out all flesh on planet Earth!

·        The Sign of the Return of the Wandering Jews to the Promised Land: God promised that at the end of the world, Jews would gather once again in Israel (Ezekiel 37:21-22; Ezekiel 38:8; Jeremiah 31:7-10). Since 1948 the world has witnessed 5.4 million Jews who have done everything they could to emigrate to the Promised Land.

·        The Sign of Israel Building a Security Wall: God told Ezekiel that Israel would build walls for security—even though there had been no “Israel” for 150 years! For several years now Israel has been building the most notorious wall in the world. And it will be completed, because Ezekiel saw it taken down when Israel accepts the European Peace Treaty through the Antichrist’s rule during the Tribulation, and thus trusts in a false peace (Daniel 9:27)!


Multitudes are already trusting in a false peace, and don’t even know it. So God warns: There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death (Proverbs 14:12). There is only ONE way to escape “the way of death,” and that is to trust in Jesus who declared, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me” (John 14:6). In what or whom are you placing your trust today?
