For many years, Christians have been saying the "end is near", just because something that seemed to line up with what they read in the Bible had happened.
One or two events happening does NOT the end make. This is the first time in history ALL of the Bible prophecies, concerning the end of days, have come together at one time. Some of them are just in the process of happening, or preparation are in the works. This has NEVER happened before.
The 24th chapter of Matthew, verses 32 - 34 Jesus told us exactly when the countdown would begin:
32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:
33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
Jesus didn't say "when A branch is tender". He said when HIS branch is yet tender". What was HIS branch? Jewish. He was referring to Israel once again becoming a nation and flourishing. That's what would start the countdown to the end.
Israel became a state again on May 14, 1948. The key is to keep your eyes on Israel and the middle east.
So when is the end coming? We'll talk more about the signs in the next blog. But let me leave you with this:
Luke 21:20And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh.
21Then let them which are in Judaea 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.
22For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.
When Israel is surrounded by armies…
KEEP YOUR EYES ON ISRAEL!
