The great Bible Prophecy teacher, Jan Markell, has often said something like this: “Things aren’t falling apart; things are falling into place.”
A pastor recently sent her an e-mail that said, “We don’t live in uncertain times. Not at all! These times are as certain as any time in all of human history, and the God of the universe laid out this time in great detail, point by point, and in fact, with all the detail needed by His people to live in times of absolute certainty! So no, there’s nothing uncertain about the times we live in to the believer who is seeking to live by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.”
Bible prophecy is falling in place right now with incredible speed and accuracy.
These current events appear to verify what the best prophecy teachers are saying.
For those that are really saved, it is a message of comfort and hope, not doom and gloom (I Thess. 4:13-18).
One, concerning a falling away or a departing from the faith at the end of the age (I Tim. 4:1), on Sept. 3, 2020, Michael Snyder reported that a recent State of Theology survey found that 30% of those that call themselves Evangelical Christians say Jesus isn’t God.
It seems to me that there are only two explanations: 1) They weren’t saved to begin with, or 2) They have fallen away from the faith by rejecting what the Bible clearly teaches (Matt. 7:21; John 10:30).
Two, concerning persecution of believers at the end of the age, Rev. Franklin Graham recently warned that the Democratic Party is “opposed to faith,” and the left will close churches in many places if the U.S. embraces socialism.
He said, “You are going to see Christians attacked, you are going to see churches close, and you are going to see a real hatred expressed toward people of faith. That is coming.”
This has already started, but it could get much worse in a matter of months.
Three, concerning peace in the Middle East, on Sept. 1, 2020, Jared Kushner, Senior Advisor to Pres. Trump, said, “Obviously anything could happen, but the reality is that a lot of people are envious of the move that the United Arab Emirates has made.”
“A lot of people want access to the technology, economy and the advancements that Israel has. Israel is like another Silicon Valley for the Middle East.”
On Sept. 2, 2020, Kushner boarded a plane for a flight to the UAE and the beginning of a “new era of peace in the Middle East.”
The word “peace” was written in three languages over the cockpit of the plane.
Kushner believes another Arab nation will make peace with Israel in a matter of months and all 22 Arab nations will eventually recognize the existence of Israel (Note: On Sept. 3, 2020, it was reported that Bahrain will likely normalize relations before Rosh Hashana, Sept. 18, and as many as 20 Muslim nations could do it in the next two months).
On Sept. 5, 2020, it was reported that Israel and the UAE anticipate signing their agreement in Washington, D.C. during the week of Sept. 14, and they will call their agreement a “treaty of peace.”
Calling it a “treaty of peace” gives it the same status as the peace treaties that Egypt and Jordan have signed with Israel.
This peace treaty must be approved by the Israeli Knesset, but there should be no problem with that.
The Antichrist will confirm a worthless treaty after the Rapture of the Church (Dan. 9:27).
Four, Amir Tsarfati believes the current situation is causing Israel to dwell more safely and may be setting the stage for the Battle of Gog and Magog (Ezek. 38:11).
On Sept. 3, 2020, Saudi Arabia opened its airspace to all countries (includes Israel) flying planes to the UAE.
This new relationship between Saudi Arabia and Israel is a reminder that Saudi Arabia will not join the Gog and Magog attack on Israel (Ezek. 38:13).
On Sept. 3, 2020, Bahrain opened its airspace to Israel.
Five, the Tribulation Period will begin with a covenant of peace in the Middle East (I Thess. 5:3).
The Antichrist will confirm the covenant at the beginning of the Tribulation Period, and he will break it at the Middle of the Tribulation Period (Dan. 9:27).
When the Antichrist breaks the covenant, goes to the Temple and says he is God, the Jews in Judea will flee into the wilderness (Matt. 24:15-16; II Thess. 2:3-4).
Then, God will judge the nations and drag them into the Battle of Armageddon for dividing the Promised Land and scattering the Jews (Joel 3:2).
On Aug. 31, 2020, it was reported that U.S. National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien traveled to the UAE where he said, the U.S. is “committed to a two-state solution between Israel and Palestine.”
The U.S. is trying to appease the Arabs and Palestinians when we should be trying to appease God.
Six, at the end of the age, Israel will be an exceedingly great army (Ezek. 37:10).
On Aug. 28, 2020, US News and World Report published a ranking that says Israel is the eighth most powerful country on earth for the fourth year in a row.
According to the Bible, the Archangel Michael will stand up for Israel at the time of the end, and Israel will be the most powerful nation on earth (Dan. 12:1).
Seven, concerning the lawlessness that is rampant in many U.S. cities today, this lawlessness is ultimately going to lead to the rise of the lawless one (the Antichrist).
Eight, concerning the Battle of Gog and Magog, on Sept. 4, 2020, it was reported that the International Atomic Energy Agency has informed several members of the UN that Iran is just 3 ½ months away from having the ability and materials to produce two nuclear bombs.
The U.S. and Israel have both said they will not let Iran get nuclear weapons.
The U.S. response may well be influenced by the upcoming presidential election (Biden was pro-Iran under Obama; Trump is pro-Israel).
Nine, concerning pestilence, the World Health Organization has linked a recent polio outbreak in Sudan and Chad to vaccinations.
This is very troubling, but it is more troubling in light of the fact that many officials want to force everyone on earth to be vaccinated for the Coronavirus.
Polls show that a large number of U.S. voters are likely to hesitate before they agree to be vaccinated for the virus (and this could lead to persecution).
As I close, Bible Prophecy is falling into place, but no one knows the day or the hour of the Rapture.
God loves you, and if you have not done so, sincerely admit that you are a sinner; believe that Jesus is the virgin born, sinless Son of God who died for the sins of the world, was buried and raised from the dead; ask Him to forgive your sins, cleanse you, come into your heart and be your Saviour; then tell someone that you have done this.
