So many things are happening all at once. The fulfillment of end-times Bible prophecy is everywhere. Civilization is coming unglued, and fear is being promoted and experienced to the four corners and farthest reaches of the globe.
The 70th Week of Daniel and the Time of Jacob’s Trouble are both familiar terms that describe a seven-year period of Tribulation that is like a giant meteor speeding toward the earth, and it is now in plain sight, and nothing can stop it.
The Tribulation is a time that Jesus Himself said would be the worst time in the history of the world and more terrible than it would ever be again at any time in the future. He even said that if He were to not intervene, no flesh would be saved. With technology being what it is, the insane mindset of many world leaders, and wannabe tyrants of the religious and political kind, it is not hard to understand why Jesus said that.
The Book of Revelation makes it crystal clear that between Satan and his minions pulling out all the stops in regard to wickedness and destruction, combined with the wrath of God being poured out on a desperately evil, God-hating, Christ-rejecting, and unrepentant world, this planet is not going to be safe for anyone anywhere.
Jesus also compares the last days, just before the rapture of the remnant church, to birth pains. Birth pains, most of us know, come more frequently as the time approaches for the actual birth.
There will come a moment when the birth pains will end, and a birth will occur. That moment of new birth is very near, as is the Tribulation hurtling toward us from the future. It is as if the two are on a collision course.
Something has got to give.
That something is about to take place, and it will alter the lives of everyone on Earth forever. This is true for the saved and for the unsaved, though the future will be quite different for those two groups.
Who are the saved? We who believe that Jesus died for our sins and then rose from the dead. We who trust in Him for our salvation. We who know by revelation of the Holy Spirit that He truly is the Way and the Truth and the Life, and no one comes to the Father except through Him and Him alone (John 14:6).
We who believe in His promise that those of us who love Him are not appointed to the wrath of God, which will be poured out upon the wicked during the seven-year Tribulation (Revelation 3:10).
In John 14:2, about 2,000 years ago, Jesus made a promise to all who believed in Him and all who would come to believe in Him during the 2,000 years to pass before His return. He said, “In my Father’s house are many mansions, and if that were not so, I would have told you; and so, I go to prepare a place for you and will return to take you to where I am, so that you may be there also.” When the birth pains run their course, Jesus will call us to be with Him, just as described in 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17.
When this happens, the restrainer of evil, the Holy Spirit, will also be removed from the task of restraining, and thus evil will be unrestrained. The door will then swing wide open for the 70th Week of Daniel to begin. The “Tribulation.”
As for the unsaved, who are they? Satan and all of the fallen angels operating as demons. All humans who have allowed themselves to become possessed by demons and then committed evil with the demons at the helm. All those who have supported acts of evil while calling those evil acts good.
As well as all mockers of God and all those who have rejected the free gift of salvation and chosen not to believe that Jesus is who He Himself says He is. The Way, the Truth, and the Life. Those also who chose to believe in false gods, or arrogantly and foolishly, chose to believe that they themselves are god.
Bible prophecy, and especially Jesus Himself, make it perfectly clear that Satan and all who have come under his sway will become more and more wicked as the Tribulation looms near, and they will continue on that downward spiral as the earth enters into the seven years of reckoning.
We are already seeing what (in your face) truly barbaric wickedness looks like. There has always been wickedness, at least since the fall of man; however, it either made efforts to hide itself, or you heard about some atrocity well after it happened. Or, you might never have heard about it at all due to it happening far away. Today’s technology has changed all that, along with the devil knowing he has but a short time left.
The devil is revealing depravity on a level that is truly shocking.
Now, a demon-possessed yet tech-savvy group like Hamas can livestream themselves slaughtering innocent unarmed men, women, and children in real-time and broadcast it on social media to everyone with a computer or a cell phone. Nearly everyone has a cell phone.
They can livestream themselves torturing and setting elderly people on fire and raping women right before either murdering them in cold blood or dragging them off by the hair as hostages.
The topper of it all, and the unimaginable hellish level that such evil creatures will sink to, is they can livestream themselves murdering babies and chopping their heads off. The unthinkable is now happening.
This is real, folks. It is not a Stephen King horror movie.
What is on display here are the most vile, sickening, and heartbreaking acts of evil. And it’s right before our eyes and in real-time.
These are no longer human beings who commit such atrocities. They may be in human bodies, but their minds and hearts are 100% demon-possessed. Those who would give themselves over to evil on this level are no different than a demon horde or an army of Orcs, like those hideous creatures in the Fellowship of the Ring movies. They cannot be reasoned with, nor can they be appeased.
We can expect more of this and in more places around the world because, as we can also see, these murder-loving terrorists have groups of dimwitted reprobates cheering them on. Reprobates devoid of any compassion for the actual victims in Israel.
This is happening worldwide, including here in the USA in some Islamic communities and on college campuses like Harvard, Brown, Columbia, Stanford, Cal Berkley, and several other universities where students have been thoroughly brainwashed by Marxists and misinformed with out-and-out false/rewritten history.
But it is not only the Islamic terrorists. There are tens of thousands (probably a few million) thugs on the payrolls of those who rule nations, and those globalist elitists who seek to rule the world. Some call these thugs mercenaries. Many of these thugs wear official uniforms while fully maintaining a thug mentality. Multiple thousands of these thugs are highly trained in the arts of intimidation, torture, and the killing of Human Beings.
The religious thugs generally commit atrocities for a cause because they are fully brainwashed and/or demon-possessed. The non-Islamic kind of thugs in most parts of the world do it because they are well paid and because, being morally bankrupt, they enjoy the thug life and especially enjoy physically hurting people. Or because they fear losing their jobs and are unwilling to stand up for righteous principles.
It is almost as if the Islamic terrorists — with Hamas leaders now calling for a worldwide jihadist uprising in support of the vile, depraved monsters and their supporters who think it is just fine to behead babies — are competing with the vile, depraved global elitist monsters with their genocidal goals of depopulation and the total abolishment of freedom to see who can sink to the lowest depths of satanic wickedness.
If it were a horse race, they would be running side by side.
The Tribulation will be filled with horror and violence. It will end at the Second Coming of Jesus, when as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, and with supernatural powers on the scale of speaking creation into existence, Jesus will bring the final curtain down on this chapter of man’s love affair with evil, lust for power, greed, stupidity, and cruelty.
The birth pains are now only a minute apart, and the Tribulation is like a meteor speeding straight at us.
All of this talk about the hideous ugliness of evil and the depraved souls who embrace it and wallow in it is the bad news. The good news is you don’t have to be here for the soon-to-come even more terrible times. But time is quickly running out to call on the Lord Jesus.
Romans 10:9-10 shows the way: “Confess with your mouth that ‘Jesus is Lord’ and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, and you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and with your mouth that you confess and are saved.”
How much more vividly fulfilled do the prophetic signs need to be to cause the sleeping masses of the lost and unsaved to wake up? Turn to Jesus today. Do not wait until tomorrow. The baby is about to crown, and the meteor is about to strike.
In Luke 21:28, Jesus says, “When these things begin to take pace, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.”
Trust in Jesus 100% and fear not.
It won’t be long, for redemption is indeed near, and every single day this side of the Rapture, we comfort each other with these words.
Jesus is the Lord of All.
