When I was a teenager in the ’60s, my family visited a local church and I was part of a Sunday class that had a youth group. Our teacher spent several months going over the book of Revelation and explaining the symbols and how they relate to the Last Days, the tribulation period, and how Israel is the key.
Summary: After the Rapture, the Anti-Christ signs a 7-year peace treaty with Israel, and God pours out 21 judgments on the earth, during the first half of the 7 years there will be 2 witnesses and 144,000 Jewish witnesses that will evangelize the whole world, at midpoint the anti-Christ will break the peace treaty with Israel, and most the Jews will flee to Petra, Jordan for protection and sanctuary. At that time it was not clear to me how this would happen. But, because it was in the Bible and I believe this to be true, also it will happen as described in the Bible!
As I look back to when I was a teenager, Israel was less than 20 years as a Nation and part of Jerusalem and owned by Jordan. There was no Internet, no cell phones, and no personal computer. The USA was a nation of law and order and the US was respected in the world with safe borders, with the strongest economy and abortion was against the law. in the 60s and 70s, China was considered an inferior country compared to the US and in the 60s China’s military was 250,000 strong.
Today Israel has been in existence for over 70 years and Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. By 2021 China has become one of the wealthiest nations in the world and its military might rival the US. We have the Worldwide Web connecting virtually everything like, cell phones, computers, TV, and more. What was impossible when I was a teenager in the book of Revelation describing the End Time is now possible!
The US has become a nation of lawlessness, with riots, increased murders, rapidly rising crime rates, increased illegal aliens and, we as a nation have aborted over 65 million babies. The US government has issued illegal mandates that force US citizens to comply or lose their jobs, business, shop, or travel. As we look at the End of Days, what we see now is a prelude to what will happen during the 7-year Tribulation; drugs, famine shortages, lost jobs, crime, lawlessness, corruption, and evil.
The Bible prophesies they are being fulfilled indicating the time for the End Times is near, very near! Next the Rapture and the Tribulation.
If you are a believer in Jesus Christ you will not be on earth during the Tribulation but in Heaven, however, if you are on earth during the Tribulation; DON’T TAKE THE “MARK OF THE BEAST”! If you do, you are doomed to spend eternity in Hell! At his point, your best option is to call on the name of Jesus and be saved.
Revelation 13:15-18 New King James Version
“15 He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. 16 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”
If you don’t know Jesus, Jesus died for everyone and made it simple, just call on the name of Jesus and you will be saved. And avoid going through the Tribulation, because you will be in Heaven with many other believers.
For more information about the End Times, read and study some of the books of the Bible: Revelation, Daniel, Ezekiel, Isaiah, the 12 Minor Prophets, especially; Zephaniah, Joel, and Malachi.
Please pass this on to family and friends, especially those who don’t know Jesus!
