“Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains.” Matthew 24: 7-8
Could 2014 be an historic year of major prophetic significance? Many Bible experts agree that end time prophecy is starting to escalate with the recent increase in earthquake activity, mass sinkholes swallowing up buildings, cars, lakes and people, drastic changes in our climate, historic volcano eruptions around the world, wars and rumors of wars in the Middle East, and the daily mass die off of animals, fish and birds. Could it be that God is warning and preparing the world for the soon coming tribulation period, and the return of his son Jesus Christ?
April of 2014 could be a very important month for biblical prophecy with the start of a series of blood moons on major Jewish feast days. Jesus said one of the signs of the approaching apocalypse would be the blood moons. The four blood moons have only happen seven time in 2000 years. This rare Tetrad happen in 1492 around the time that the Jews where being persecuted and expelled from Spain. During this time they hired Christopher Columbus, a sympathizer for the Jewish cause, to find them a new home. God lit up the sky again with the four blood moons when Israel became a nation in 1948 after being persecuted and scattered all over the world. Then during the six day war in 1967 Israel regain Jerusalem as their capital for the first time since the time of Christ and the four blood moons appeared again as a sign.
Another important event that could happen in April of 2014 is an historic seven year peace agreement with Israel and Palestine. Secretary of State John Kerry told the news media on July 30, 2013 that they have a goal to work out a comprehensive peace agreement within nine months (April 2014) that would lead to an independent Palestinian state. Just recently John Kerry told reporters that they hope to have a framework agreement for the peace treaty by New Years Eve of this year. This peace agreement could very well be the seven year covenant as spoken about in the book of Daniel that initiates the 7 year Tribulation known also as Daniel’s 70th week.
Whatever happens in 2014 one point we know for sure is that time is running out. Biblical prophetic events are unfolding daily before our eyes on TV news and the internet. Israel is God’s divine prophetic time clock which is counting down to the day and hour of the return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. When Israel became a nation again in 1948 God’s stopwatch started to countdown. According to scripture this generation will not pass away until we see the coming and soon return of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Change is coming, and coming soon. Will you be ready?
