You don’t need to be a bible scholar to see the ominous signs going on around the world. You don’t necessarily need bible prophecy to see whats happening either – though it helps to understand WHY its all happening.
In the secular news you see Russia emerging as the world superpower, at minimum, the US declining. You see wars in the middle east, conflicts escalating, atrocities occurring by way of ISIS in Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, Jordan. People are starving, people are being killed all over the planet. Boko Haram is continually invading villages, killing all men, abducting the women – i haven’t see word of that lately on the nightly news though? Did we get bored of that?
The economy is ready and due for a collapse, 2008 was the teaser which all economists admit. The debt of the world is not sustainable but because its a debt based economy debt needs to keep rising to keep the system going -which can’t happen forever. We are poised this year for a repeat of 2007 (remember Lehman brothers?) and 2015 could easily be similar to 2008 but X times more intense. The next collapse whenever it occurs will be the big one. We can’t just keep printing money to make our debt problem go away. Printing money devalues the money that already exists and leads to inflation. Your money then does not purchase what it did last year and you need more of it because of the flood of extra dollars on the market.
Fiat currencies and debt based societies always fall and most economists are warning we’ve run out of time.
Why should we in the year 2014 not see war? Why should we need see an economic collapse, our parents and grandparents lived through 1 or both of those so there is no reason to think its not inevitable. Just because you haven’t experienced something on that scale, doesn’t mean it never occurs. Me being 35ish, I’ve not seen anything terrible, not a big war that affected me, nor a real economic crisis that i had to live through. Get ready for it, i think we will be going through it shortly.
Are you ready to lose all your wealth? Are you ready to lose your job? Are you ready for soup lines, starvation? Don’t say I didn’t warn you if it happens. World events, history, news, and biblically, we are living in times such as those where we are poised right now for the next great event.
Bible Prophecy Update:
The bible speaks of all these events happening:
Matthew 24:3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what [shall be] the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? 4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. 5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. 6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all [these things] must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. 8 All these [are] the beginning of sorrows. 9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. 10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. 11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. 12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. 13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
What I see that we are coming up on is the 7 year tribulation. I think we are in the short period before the tribulation and the rise of the antichrist.
Here is the general timeline of events:
- birth pains getting strong and stronger (wars, famines, earthquakes, financial issues)
- the rapture of the church (this is where the restrainer is taken out of the world scene – the holy spirit. Once the Holy Spirit is out of the way, He is the one who holds back evil on the earth, the antichrist can reveal himself and the world can really descend into chaos)
- The antichrist is revealed – first as a world leader bringing peace FINALLY to Israel and Palestine – though it will be a false peace deal of course for 7 years
- At the mid point of the 7 year peace deal, the antichrist will reveal his true intentions and sit on the throne in the third temple and call himself GOD
- Finally Jesus will return to the earth, clean up, rule and reign
Thats the high level outline. There is a lot missing there, all the prophecies in the timeline, the two witnesses, the various events that occur..
Prophecies in there which occur potentially prior to #2:
- Psalm 83 – all the nations directly around Israel are wiped out (only AFTER they first try to attack Israel)
- Isaiah 17 – Damascus as a city is finally totally destroyed – occurring now but there will be a final and total destruction there, right now its still inhabited but ISIS is taking over syria now. Currently I see the potential that ISIS does take over Syria and because of that, Israel is forced to hit them. With basher assad still in power, its dangerous but at least now he is not actively threatening Israel. Something needs to change for Damascus to be hit and we see now it could be ISIS infiltrating and taking over Syria which ends up being the game changer
Thats a super brief overview, missing a lot of prophecies in there but the two above are the next things on the timeline to occur according to the bible it appears.
My thought on the economic collapse and it happening in our lifetime is this:
Matthew 24:36 But of that day and hour knoweth no [man], no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. 37 But as the days of Noe [were], so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, 39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 41 Two [women shall be] grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. 43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. 44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. 45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season? 46 Blessed [is] that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. 47 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods. 48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; 49 And shall begin to smite [his] fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken; 50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for [him], and in an hour that he is not aware of, 51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint [him] his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
The above speaks of the return of the Lord being like the days of Noah. what does it say? They were eating, and drinking, marrying. It sounds like all was good right up until the flood came . If this is true and we are in that time NOW, it seems plausible to me at this point that we are NOT around (those who have been saved by the blood of Jesus and accepted Him as Lord and Saviour) for the collapse. Potentially the collapse happens just after we leave – plausible because what would the world do without a billion christians (or whatever the number is) paying taxes, praying, supporting the economies…
Read your bible and come to your own conclusion but to me, and based on that scripture, the economic state of the world needs to be stable, at least as seen by the people of the earth where its status quo, people are just living their lives not thinking about the state of the economy. And indeed, stock markets are currently going up and up, and I think they will continue to do that until the big collapse.
Now, you’re saying, what if it does collapse, the possibility is that there will be a new money system anyways and this prophecy will be fulfilled at the end of THAT economies life cycle. Maybe, but that puts it out too far in the future if you consider existing bible prophecies which are underway. the mark of the beast needs to come into play as well which would require a full economic collapse to push the world into moving towards that, which is simply a one world currency to begin with, and world government. All the signs and seasons are pointing to NOW as the potential convergence point for all these things and its a time where its very plausible for it all to happen.
Another tidbit, historically collapses start in the fall, october / november. Thats when it happened in 2007, thats when the stock market crashed in 2001 (after the world trade center collapsed) The great depression occurred in october of 1929 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Depression).
Another apparent coincidence is that the feast of trumpets – the next feast to be fulfilled (the first 3 have been fulfilled by Jesus Christ) happens in the fall, september / october timeframe. This is also the feast where ‘no man knows the day or the hour’ because they watch for the start over 2 days as they aren’t sure when the new moon will be seen.
Matthew 24:36 But of that day and hour knoweth no [man], no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
Is God hinting at the fulfillment of the feast since the Jewish Rabbis call this the feast where no man knows the day or the hour? I don’t believe Christians will be surprised when Jesus comes back, see verse 4 below. We should be expecting, we should be looking forward to the Lords return as the Lord will finally bring a lasting peace to the world.
1 Thessalonians 5:1 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. 2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. 3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. 4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. 5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. 6 Therefore let us not sleep, as [do] others; but let us watch and be sober. 7 For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. 8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation. 9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, 10 Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him. 11 Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.
