Signs of the Last Days - News for the week of Nov 12 - Nov 18, 2017

Sorry for the lateness of this blog post, and the lack of our usual commentary this time around, (busy week.)  However, we have included some brief notes of explanation, (in red), which we hope will help in the understanding and significance of the individual prophecy signs and accompanying news links.

Until next week, keep looking up.  Time is short and Jesus Christ is coming very soon.

Prophecy Sign: The future Seven year Covenant of Peace, (Daniel 9:27) 


The Prophet Daniel was told that there would be a final seven year period for his people, (Israel and the Jews), which God would use to bring an end to Israel's unbelief and bring about a collective conversion to the acceptance of Jesus Christ as their long sought after Messiah, (Zechariah 12:10).  This seven year period will begin when a covenant of peace is negotiated by the future Antichrist between Israel and the nations.

Signs of the Last Days - News for the week of Nov 5 - Nov 11, 2017

Professor Stephen Hawking believes that in just under a half millennia from now the earth will become a "flaming ball of fire". His advice to us all is to begin preparations to flee this planet for some far flung corner of the galaxy.

Earth 'will become a flaming ball of fire by 2600': Professor Stephen Hawking warns that mankind must make plans to leave the planet to avoid extinction
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-5056107/Stephen-Hawking-says-technology-end-poverty-urges-caution.html

With all due respect to the eminent Professor, the God of the Bible says otherwise.

According to the word of God, before this planet is burnt up, mankind must first go through a couple upcoming periods of time. The first one of short length, (the seven year Tribulation), and another lasting at least 1,000 years, (the Millennial Kingdom), followed by a final uprising of Satan and the nations.

When the thousand years are over, Satan will be released from his prison and will go out to deceive the nations in the four corners of the earth—Gog and Magog—and to gather them for battle. In number they are like the sand on the seashore. Revelation 20:7-8 NIV

It is after these events, that God will then turn this planet into a "flaming ball of fire" as he burns up the old heavens and earth and creates the new heavens and a new earth.

But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare. Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly lives as you look forward to the day of God and speed its coming. That day will bring about the destruction of the heavens by fire, and the elements will melt in the heat. 2 Peter 3:10-12 NIV

Then I saw "a new heaven and a new earth," for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. Revelation 21:1 NIV

"See, I will create new heavens and a new earth. The former things will not be remembered, nor will they come to mind. Isaiah 65:17 NIV


So yes, the Professor is correct in that the earth in the future will becoming a "flaming ball of fire", however he's a little early on the dates of his prediction and in the fact that mankind will have to go anywhere. God has wonderful plans for those he calls his own and those plans include staying right here on a brand new planet Earth.

And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death' or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” Revelation 21:3-4 NIV

We pray that you will be part of these future plans of God by seeking his son Jesus Christ today. Don't delay....time is short.

If you declare with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. Romans 10:9-10 NIV

Until next week, Maranatha and God Bless.
