Christians are always making these predictions. They have been trying to predict the "rapture", too for many decades. Even, even, when their own
bible and their own Jesus states that no one knows, only his Father in heaven knows. So they don't relay on their biblical word. Another point, the
"end times", some would say, began the moment that Christ assended into heaven.
In case you didn't know, in the Bible there are many signs we are told to watch for, so we can know when the end times are apon us. Right now we are
in the church age, because people are still being saved.
The end times will begin when some sort of world government or ruler(the anti-christ) signs a peace treaty (such as the many contracts the
Roman Catholic church has with almost all nations)
with Israel. The treaty will last 3 and 1/2 years, then it will be broken, followed by 3
and 1/2 more years of the worst disasters and wars the world has ever known Daniel 9:27.
The most common held believe among christians, including myself is that the churches of God will be raptured out to heaven before this signing takes
place. 1Thessalonians 4:13-18. READ IT.
The end times are the "the time of Jacob's trouble" (Jeremiah 30:7) not the church's.
Now all these signs are for the Jews, not Gentiles(1 Corinthians 1:22, For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom. Hints this
But and any child can read the signs of the times 1Thessalonians 5:1-11.
Now here are some "signs" of the Bible predicting todays events:
1. The Jews return to THERE land:
Ezekiel 20:34 And I will bring you out from the people, and will gather you out of the countries wherein ye are scattered, with a mighty hand, and
with a stretched out arm, and with fury poured out.
Isaiah 11:11 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which
shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of
Isaiah 11:12 And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from
the four corners of the earth.
2.False Christs or anointed ones.
Matthew 24:5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
3.Wars and rumors of wars, Matthew 24:6, And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to
pass, but the end is not yet.
4.This one speaks for its self (H1N1, Haiti) Matthew 24:7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be
famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
5. The treatment of Jews. Matthew 24:9-14
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. And then shall many be
offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity
shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
and many more, but I'm out of room and tired. If you want to know the rest, just let me know. All this info is right in front of almost every soul
on the earth, right in your good ole trusty King James Bible.
