We are to watch and pray for the Lord’s return. We will help you do so by keeping our eyes on the signs of the times and reporting them to you. Jesus chastised the Pharisees for not knowing the signs of the times in His day. So He wants to us know the signs today, for they instill in us hope for the future and encourage us to evangelize the lost while there is still time.
Are Israeli Jews preparing to build the "Third Temple" in Jerusalem in fulfillment of End Times Bible prophecy? If so, who is behind such developments? How are Muslim leaders responding? Could such a move trigger an apocalyptic reaction by the Muslim world against Israel in an already volatile
With Dispensationalism, God deals with Israel and the Church Separately....
What I feel my brothers and sisters in Christ fail to recognize that God is dealing with men as a plan of redemption by working with men in dispensations, called Dispensationalism. What is Dispensationalism? The short definition and you can find a full explanation in places such as Wikipedia or Google it, but Dispensationalism is an approach to biblical interpretation which states that God uses different means of working with people (Israel and the Church) during different periods of history, usually seven chronologically successive periods. However, dispensational division of history varies among its adherents from three periods, to four, seven, and even eight dispensations. For brevity, I'm going to cut that down a bit, as God has worked with two sets of people for nigh 4000 years, the nation of Israel and His body, the Church.
Saturday, November 23rd, in Geneva Switzerland, the United States of America sent a clear message to the major powers of the Middle East: "Gentlemen, start your centrifuges." The contestants were already in place, ready for the order to begin the contest and now they have it. A new atomic weapons race began Saturday in what was already the most volatile part of the world . . . and planet earth will never be the same.
Secretary Kerry told the press that economic sanctions brought Iran to the negotiating table. Later he said that sanctions would no longer work. In other words — they did work, but they don't work.
We clearly have reached the point in the birth pain cycle where every, year will now be visited by some form of major natural disaster. If this exponential pace continues, we may see two or more calamities in each of the coming years. It can also mean we are very near to the Tribulation hour.
God is clearly trying to get Man's attention with all these disasters. The Lord is very patient, but He is no fool. Eventually, the warnings will end and the final judgment will begin. "What can I do to advance the kingdom of God?" That is the question every believer needs to be asking.
The combination of the Rapture and the Battle of Ezekiel 38 will fill the world with anguish and uncertainty as Daniel's 70th Week begins. Where did all those people go? How did Israel so utterly destroy that massive invasion force all by itself? How did all these things happen so suddenly? Why didn't somebody see this coming and do something to prevent it?
The Greatest End Times Sign
Nate Herbst: Let's talk a little bit about some of the prophecies concerning the greatest end times sign. We are living in a chaotic time on the planet, where so many things are happening. People are looking around and asking, "What's going on?" I can't tell you the number of non-Christians whom I've shared the Gospel with, and they too ask me, "Doesn't the Bible talk about what's going on right now?" and "Somebody told me that the book of Revelation talks about this."
Much effort has gone into understanding the sequence of events of the Great Tribulation, but very little has gone into examining the reasons for it. This study is an attempt to examine the reasons for such a terrible judgment.
A Summary of Man's Rebellion
As a whole, Man has rejected every opportunity that God has given him to demonstrate his trust in Him by obedience to Him. The rejection of God and His guidance is the "mother" of every other form of evil, key aspects of which are dealt with in this study.
What a gift this nation has been to the world, both spiritually and naturally! Through the Jews, many inventions and life changing discoveries have blessed the world in all kinds of different fields. But among the greatest gifts from God’s people was God’s Word, the Bible, which among other books contains the Torah, the Gospels and the Epistles.
The Jews also gave us the apostles, the prophets and the most important gift to the world, and that is none other than Yeshua the Messiah, the Savior of the world, the Lamb of God. God’s one and only Son whom He sent to atone for the sins of mankind by dying on the cross and overcoming death by being raised from the grave. That alone is the greatest story ever written, but this message is about how God is going to use modern Israel to usher in His Kingdom, to which there will be no end! We are living in these times. What an honor to be living in these times.
The sixth and last question looks pointedly at the book of Daniel as one of the most important prophetic books in the Bible. It contains so many great prophecies, such as the succession of world empires portrayed in chapter two and the incredible prophecy of the 70 Weeks of Years in chapter nine. With all these major prophetic messages, one message in Daniel should stand out from the rest.
So the question for our experts is this:
#6. What is the most important prophetic message of the book of Daniel?
