end time signs
By: Steve M. Woods
Have you ever stop to think that time itself was created by God? In the book of Genesis we read about the creation of time when God spoke it into existence with the universe. It was not until man sinned in the Garden of Eden did mankind become aware of his mortality and the eternal stopwatch started to countdown. Since the first man Adam we have been on a countdown like a stopwatch quickly moving to its completion.
Time is like two book markers with a beginning and an end which scientist call the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics. Basically this law states that everything created in the universe is in a process of decay. This is why everything ultimately falls apart and disintegrates over time. God is not bound by time since he is eternal and has no beginning or end. Material things are not eternal like God and are bound in the realm of time. Everything we see that was created will eventually returns to dust just as the Bible shares in Ecclesiastes 3:20. Everything created in the universe will ultimately age, wears out, decay and die.
If time is winding down, and life is ageing and fading away, where are we on God’s countdown? Jesus disciples asked the same question in Matthew 24:3, ‘As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately. “Tell us,” they said, “when will this happen, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?” Jesus shares many events and signs in Matthew 24 that will transpire letting us know where we are in the completion of time. These signs and events that will occur at the end of time are like road signs letting us know where we are in this journey limited by time.
Many Christians are unaware that these events and signs described in the Bible are taking place now and continue to increase in frequency and in intensity just as Jesus said would occur in the last days. Matthew 24:8 states. “All these are the beginning of birth pains.” As a women gets closer to having a baby the birth pains become more intense and frequent before the baby is born. Earthquakes, wars, hearsay/ false flags of wars, uncontrollable disease, civil unrest and violence, Christian persecution and beheadings, starvation and an increase in food prices, financial monetary collapse, wicked people demanding their rights, and the mocking of God, his creation and Biblical end time prophecy continues to increase just as Jesus said would take place before the eternal stopwatch ends. Just watch and listen to the daily news if you are not convinced that this is true. Have you checked God’s eternal watch lately? What time is it? Are you ready for the end of time? Like Jesus said, don’t let it catch you off guard like a thief breaking into your property at night. Now is the time to get your life in order. Be prepared, get ready, Jesus is coming soon.
“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?
