By now you’ve all heard of the deadly tornadoes that recently ripped through Midwest, leaving in their wake nearly 100 dead, along with historic levels of damage.
In the meantime ... Russia is preparing for war against its neighbors, and US/China relations are beyond tense. The Middle East is overrun by all flavors of terrorists, humanity is out of control on many levels and global warming (or perhaps "global WARNING?") is changing the face of our planet.
And all this, amid a world-wide COVID pandemic that is never going to go away because most people can’t be bothered to change their precious lifestyles long enough to force the virus into extinction.
These are just a few of the signs of the end times, folks! Scripture warns us these things would happen. Those with their heads in the sand won’t understand, but I’m here to say, the ONLY thing we can really do is to get ourselves “right” with YHWH now, because we ARE dangerously close to the 12th hour, and nobody is guaranteed the next day….
In my humble opinion, the human race has "tested" God once too often, pushing Him to the limits of His patience. He's surely tired of all the nonsense, the bickering and arguing and rampant selfishness and arrogance. (Just like in the days of Noah....)
Zephaniah 1:18 - Neither their silver nor their gold Will be able to deliver them On the day of the Lord's wrath; And all the earth will be devoured In the fire of His jealousy, For He will make a complete end, Indeed a terrifying one, Of all the inhabitants of the earth."
Deuteronomy 32:23-25 - I will send wasting famine against them, consuming pestilence and deadly plague; I will send against them the fangs of wild beasts, the venom of vipers that glide in the dust.
Luke 21:10-12 - There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven.
Revelation 6:7-9 - I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth.
Revelation 18:7-9 - Therefore in one day her plagues will overtake her: death, mourning and famine. She will be consumed by fire, for mighty is the Lord God who judges her.
Matthew 24: 3. And while Y'shua was sitting on the Mount of Olives, his disciples drew near and were saying among themselves and to him, "Tell us when these things will be and what is the sign of your coming and the end of the world." 4. Y'shua answered and said to them, Beware, let no man deceive you. 5. For many will come in my name and will say that "I am the Mashiyach." And many they will deceive.
6. For you are bound to hear of revolutions and rumor of wars. Watch out and do not be disturbed, for it is necessary that all these things happen, but it is not yet the end. 7. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines and plagues and earthquakes in different places. 8. But all these things are only the beginning of sorrows. 9. Then they will deliver to afflictions and they will kill you and you will be hated by all nations because of my name.
10. Then many will stumble and will hate one another and will betray one another. 11. And many false prophets will arise and deceive many. 12. And because of the growth of iniquity, the love of many will grow cold. 13. But whoever has patience until the end, he will have life. 14. And this Good News of the Kingdom will be preached in all the world as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come.... (AENT)
