Luke 17:22-27 KJV
22 And he said unto the disciples, The days will come, when ye shall desire to see one of the days of the Son of man, and ye shall not see it.
23 And they shall say to you, See here; or, see there: go not after them, nor follow them.
24 For as the lightning, that lighteneth out of the one part under heaven, shineth unto the other part under heaven; so shall also the Son of man be in his day.
25 But first must he suffer many things, and be rejected of this generation.
26 And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.
27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. (emphasis mine)
Wall Street seems to be on a run away train of sucess with the markets basically rising higher and higher. Also, companies are seeing their profit margins grow, companies such as Facebook, Amazon, Alphabet the parent company of Google. Now, a slight rise in the minimum wage. Everyone seems to be living as though this party will last forever.
The world has seen this before during the late 1920’s when Wall Street market crashed leading to the world’s greatest depression. Millionaires were left penniless, some even committing suicide. No one predicted or saw this event coming.
So will it be for the final storm on the horizon. It may be party time in most democratic countries but this party is about to come to a complete devasting stop.
The known world laughed, mocked, and ridicule Noah for building an ark and saying that God was going to send great rains and cause a great flood. He warned the people for one hundred twenty years. Finally, God spoke to Noah to gather his family into the ark and close the door. The rains came and the waters began to rise and flood the entire lands.
Students of eschatology know that there is coming a one world, religion, and economic system led by what the Scriptures call him, the anti-christ. We know that he will make a decree that all should receive a mark either on their right hand or in the forehead. Without this you will not be able to buy or sell, take the mark and lock yourself in to hell.
The headlines around the world are shocking to those who follow Biblical end-times prophecies. Israel and Palenstine in conflict, Syria in the middle of a civil war, warships of the United States order to the Mediterranean Sea ready for war with the middle east countries such as Iraq and Iran. Russia meddling in the affairs of all those countries and in Libya, Yemen, Syria.
Then the Pacific Rim(the kings of the east) readying themselves to gain more influence power with the development of nuclear weapons.
All these events Christ warned us about in Matthew chapter twenty-four.
I am in the middle of a deep search to come to a better understanding on where the body of Christ will be when things take a definite turn for the worst. In past postings I have voiced my thoughts about where America is in end-time prophecies, I do believe that it is not found in Bible prophecy.
Scripture is sure about certain countries which will have a major role during these turbelent times. Russia, the bear; the former Persian countries now known as Iraq and Iran. As mentioned earlier the countries of the Pacific Rim, the kings of the east. And it goes without saying the country God turns His focus again to the tiny country of Israel, the apple of HIs eye.
The one thing that is certain in all of this is, God is in total control. We do not need to worry or be frustrated about those things happening around us. God will take care of you. We have His assurances.
Rev 22:20 KJV
20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
