Yesterday I received a post by Mark Beardsley who pointed to the sale of the S-300 missile system by the Rooskies to the Iranians. I responded to him that this was the subject of the blog. We exchanged a few more emails and he pointed out that like the birth-pains of a woman in labor, there are contractions and then a period of time where everything appears to be normal.
Jesus warns us that in the end times it will be similar to a woman who is giving birth.
“When you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be frightened; those things must take place; but that is not yet the end. 8″For nation will rise up against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; there will be earthquakes in various places; there will also be famines. These things are merely the beginning of birth pangs. 9″But be on your guard; for they will deliver you to the courts, and you will be flogged in the synagogues, and you will stand before governors and kings for My sake, as a testimony to them. Mark 13:8
Let’s take a look at what is going on, on our planet.
The Middle East continues to implode as the Arab Spring shows no signs of letting up.
Assad is still holding out in Syria where over 300,000 people have been killed in a bloody civil war.
Iran is exporting terror.
Hezbollah and HAMAS want Israel destroyed.
Yemen has fallen to the Houthi’s which are Iran’s proxy.
Iran is pushing for the bomb and I believe already has it.
ISIL continues to spread its terror and according to some INTEL is now parked on our southern border.
The BRICS nations are calling for a new default currency. Is this the end of the metro-dollar?
There are earthquakes, famines, and volcanic activity, as the ring of fire continues to erupt.
Rumors of war rumble through the halls of power.
Nation against nation or it could read: race against race, which is what we see in the USA, as racial tensions have increased in the last year.
Last year Israel and HAMAS went at it. Now, there is a lull. However, like the birth pains there will be another “contraction,” and most likely soon.
In closing todays post. We must also include the visitors-the UFOs-that are constantly being seen in our skies and come and go with impunity. What happens when they reveal themselves as our progenitors?
Each person has to ask him or herself, Are we living in the end times? Does what we see happening in the world today reflect the warning Jesus gave us almost 2000 years ago?
I would posit that we are in the last of the last days and these birth-pains will eventually lead to the birth of the Tribulation, or The time of Jacob’s trouble. If this is the case, then how should we live? We should be bold in our proclamation of the Return of the King, Jesus. We should know prophecy and how it centers around the nation of Israel, and we should be ready to tell our friends and anyone who will listen about the coming Psalm 83 war, or any of the other prophecies which I believe are about to be fulfilled.
What was written will come to pass. What was foretold will unfold.
