Living on Borrowed Time – the complete movie

Oh colors when will this happen and what will be the sign of your coming another age Jesus warning us in every way evil the Lord and pray coming soon by raishin earthquakes famines disease wars and rumors of wars are daily headlines the entire world is an economic meltdown the Middle East is a powder keg waiting to explode and the once and mighty lone world superpower the United States has been knocked off its perch and is in a downward spiral and most likely has passed the point of no return no one can deny that we live in a world gripped by fear among all segments of society in all nations of the world there is a foreboding sense that we are marching towards some cataclysmic consummation of history the news is filled with reports of increasing violence muggings kidnappings child abuse terrorism wars and rumors of wars we seem to be bombarded by an endless stream of natural calamities such as earthquakes famines hurricanes floods and fires significant too is the fact that all these frightful trends are taking place at the same time and with the context of a world armed to the teeth with nuclear weapons and to make things worse these weapons of mass destruction are now spreading to irresponsible outlaw nations like Iran and North Korea all the while the nations of the world continue on their spending binge piling debt on debt preparing the way for a colossal worldwide economic collapse many feel that the expiration date of the planet is about to expire some say it’s only a matter of time before life as we know it comes in abrupt and sudden end and then there are those who say that we are living on borrowed time that we are already living beyond the expiration date and it’s only by some kind of divine intervention that we are even still alive since the beginning of human history speculation about the end of the world has fascinated mankind myth and stories about the end of the earth exists in almost every religion and culture ever known and yet somehow men seem unsatisfied with the answers they receive they turned to psychics like Notre Damas at your KC Jean Dixon or more contemporary seers like John Edward or Sylvia Browne where they turned to ancient Hindu writings hoping to uncover some morsel of truth that will satisfy their innate desire to know something about the future and the ultimate fate of the world never has mankind’s fascination with the end been more prevalent than it is today fears of global warming or as we now call it climate change saturate the news media worried over a nuclear holocaust persists into its sixth decade and storylines of asteroids comets aliens are bioengineered super diseases wiping out all planetary life continue to dominate our headlines and the theme of many Hollywood blockbuster throughout the world people are plagued with the same reoccurring questions well the human race become extinct while nuclear war or climate change or even some kind of natural disaster devastate this planet will the world as we know it continue to exist just a few months into 2010 and this planet has already experienced a slew of costly and deadly natural disasters like the catastrophic Haiti and Chilean earthquakes to the more recent earthquakes in Mexico Indonesia and China also the world has to contend with the travel disruptions due to the ash cloud from the volcano in Iceland and what may be one of the world’s largest ecological disasters in history the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico with earthquakes almost daily volcanic eruptions record blizzards destructive typhoons massive flooding record droughts and ecological disasters 2010 is already above average in terms of natural disaster casualties the answer to these questions and many others concerning the end of the world are not found in the writings of notre Damas and your Casey Jean Dixon John Edward or Sylvia Browne for any other self professed psychic they can be found in Islamic Hindu or Buddhist writings however they can be found in the Bible the Bible which is a track record of 100% accuracy when it comes to future events as much to say about the ultimate fate of the earth the word Bible comes from the Greek word byblos which means book the Bible is unarguably an incredible book the Bible is the best-selling most quoted most published most circulated most translated most influential book in the history of mankind the Bible is the most unique piece of literature ever known to mankind there is no other book like it in existence it is different from any other book that has ever been composed over 40 different authors wrote the various 66 books that make up the Bible over a period of 1500 years these authors came from all walks of life with different experiences different levels of education and different personal backgrounds from the composition of the first biblical book until the last a period of about 1,500 years he laps the Old Testament was written between 1400 and 400 BC the first book composed was either the book of Genesis for the book of Job the books of the New Testament were written from approximately 80 40 to 80 80 thousands of years ago God chose certain men to receive his divine words and then record them for Humanity in total over 40 different human authors growth the books of the Bible these writers came from a variety of backgrounds and occupations these people include shepherds Hosea and Amos fisherman Peter and John a former tax collector Matthew a dr.

Luke and the military general Joshua at least for the writers lived in the royal household the King’s David and Solomon a prime minister Daniel and a cup bearer Nehemiah only a few of them such as Paul Luke and Moses received the finest education of their time each of these authors had unique experiences and each one of them was different in their character or makeup the Bible consists of a number of different literary forms scripture is a collection of letters sermons lols poetic descriptions and narratives of historical events prayers praise practical sayings and the warnings of the prophets the sixty-six books also contain a wide array of writing styles that express the entire range of human emotions the books of the Bible were composed upon three different continents Africa Asia and Europe for example the writings of Ezekiel were composed in Babylon or Asia Moses wrote the first five books of the Bible in the Sinai desert Africa and the Apostle Paul wrote the letter to the believers in Philippi while in Rome Europe the Bible was written in three different ancient languages the Old Testament was written mostly in Hebrew with some parts composed in Arabic a language similar to Hebrew the New Testament was originally written in a Greek the Bible also covers a variety of diverse subjects some of these subjects were historical what has happened in history of some of the subjects were prophetic ‘el what will happen in the future these subjects include such things as the existence and nature of God the creation of the universe how human beings originated the meaning of human existence the purpose of our existence and the final destiny of humankind and the planet Earth many of the biblical writers wrote about events that were to happen in the future these events were unknown to humans but known to God well not every biblical author addressed events in the future many of them did therefore the Bible is a book that contains a number of different predictions of future events from a variety of different writers there is also the fact that the writers of Scripture received their messages in different ways God directly told some writers what to say others were given their message in visions and dreams still others were given divine inspiration when they wrote and finally there were others whom God directed to record historical events as well as God’s interpretation of the events the point is this the writers of Scripture received God’s Word in a number of different ways the writer to the Hebrews noted this when he wrote long ago had many times and in many ways God spoke to our fathers by the prophets but in these last days he has spoken to us by his son whom he has appointed the heir of all things through whom also he created the world Hebrews chapter 1 verses 1 & 2 because the Bible was written over a period of 1500 years most of the writers did not personally know the other writers of Scripture neither were they familiar with their writings for example the Old Testament authors would have been unfamiliar with the New Testament writers and writings seeing that they were not composed until four hundred years after the Old Testament was completed therefore since the writers were separated from one another by time and space were not acquainted with each other there is no chance they could have conspired together yet when their writings are put together there’s one harmonious account from beginning to end with Jesus Christ as the main character what is the best explanation for this feature it is the one that the Bible gives about itself it is the word of the Living God in fact Jesus himself testified to the unity of the scripture he said that the Old Testament was all about him while it looked forward to his coming the Gospels record the fulfillment of these promises the book of Acts reports the message of Jesus going out into the world the New Testament letters provide the explanation of the two comings of Christ while the book of Revelation records the consummation of all things in Christ consequently when we examine the scripture we find clear evidence of intelligent design from beginning to end the Bible has proven reliable a feature that separates the Bible from all other ancient literature is its historical precision within the pages of the Bible we find many references to events people and places entire Bible centers around what God did in history the science of archaeology along with the testimony of secular historical records confirmed their precision of the references in the various biblical books this my nude attention to detail observed by the biblical writers is unparalleled in any other ancient literature in every instance where the Bible can be or has been checked out archaeologically has been found to be 100% accurate the Bible has proven so accurate that archaeologists often refer to it as a reliable guide when they go to dig in new areas in fact even though less than 1% of the material available to excavate in the tales in Israel has been excavated there have been more than 25,000 discoveries within that region known as the Bible lands that have confirmed the truthfulness of the Bible every time many people don’t know this there are dozens of ridings outside of the Bible that verify the historical accuracy of many of the names of the people places and events mentioned in the Bible in fact external sources verify at least 80 persons were actual historical figures 50 people from the Old Testament and 30 people from the New Testament and because of engravings and statues etc we know at least what 18 of them looked like external verification of what the Bible says has led to a radical change of views among liberal scholars regarding the person of Jesus some had at one time put forth the false idea that Jesus never existed but he was merely a mythological character but today the existence of Jesus has hardly even debated within informed scholarly circles the reason why there are over 39 sources outside of the Bible that attest to the more than 100 facts regarding Jesus life teachings crucifixion and resurrection one of those external sources was the 1st century Roman historian Flavius Josephus in his writings Josephus verifies that Herod the Great Herod Antipas Caiaphas Cantus Pilate John the Baptist James the brother of Jesus Felix Festus and even Jesus were all historical figures listen to one of the Josephus’s statements about Jesus of Nazareth Josephus wrote at this time there was a wise man who was called Jesus and his conduct was good and he was known to be virtuous and many people from among the Jews and the other nations became his disciples Pilate condemned him to be crucified to die and those who had become his disciples did not abandon his discipleship they reported that he had appeared to them 3 days after the his crucifixion and that he was alive these are not the words of the Bible or a Christian but a Roman historian writing outside of the pages of Scripture even though the Bible was completed nearly 2,000 years ago long before the invention of the microscope the telescope satellites etc it does not contain any scientific errors this might be considered a miracle in itself without exception every ancient religious writing has certain unscientific views of astronomy medicine hygiene etc the only exception to these kind of errors among ancient religious writings is the Bible not only is the Bible free from scientific errors it miraculously makes known numerous accurate scientific facts about the universe thousands of years before modern scientist caught up what is a manuscript a manuscript is a handwritten copy of an ancient document that predates the invention of the printing press in 1455 there have been those Bible skeptics who have falsely asserted the Bible has undergone corruption down through the centuries as it was copied and translated but the evidence actually proves otherwise today there survives more than 24,000 partial and complete ancient handwritten manuscript copies of the New Testament alone not to mention hundreds of Old Testament manuscripts that survived today dating back to as early as the 3rd century BC these handwritten manuscripts have allowed scholars and textual critics to go back and verify that the Bible we have in our possession today is the same Bible that the early church possessed 2,000 years ago you can view these manuscripts yourself at places like the British Museum the can bridge University Library the Smithsonian Institute Oxford University and the National Library at Paris even if we did not have any manuscripts we have the writings of the church fathers by church fathers we were referring to those leaders in the Church of the first three centuries ad that followed the original disciples men like Justin Martyr Eusebius for Tilian and Polycarp these men and their writings and correspondence with other believers and the other churches quote the scripture over and over again in fact the early church fathers refer to the New Testament alone more than 86,000 times there are enough quotations from the early church fathers that even if we did not have a single manuscript copy of the Bible scholars could still reconstruct ninety-nine point 86 percent of new Testament that we have today so then what kind of proof is the Bible skeptic able to offer to prove the Bible has changed or been corrupted down through the centuries none to demonstrate or prove that the Bible has been corrupted the Bible skeptic would need to be able to hold up ancient copies of the Bible and say look here is what the Bible used to say and here is what the Bible says now it has been changed but that is exactly what the Bible skeptic cannot do why you go back to the ancient copies of the Bible that are still in existence today museums and libraries around the world you quickly come to the conclusion as numerous secular scholars have that the text of the modern Bible has not undergone any corruption Isaiah 40 verse 8 says the grass withers the flower fades but the word of our God stands forever jesus said in Matthew chapter 24 verse 35 heaven and earth will pass away but my words will by no means pass away the disciples went to the graves one-by-one suffering and dying martyrs death for their ongoing believed in preaching that Jesus’s resurrection was an absolute fact of history historians like Flavius Josephus Eusebius and others tell us that Matthew was slain with a sword in a city in Ethiopia mark died in Alexandria in northern Egypt after having been cruelly dragged through the streets of that city Luke was hung upon an olive tree in the land of Greece James was beheaded in Jerusalem James the less as he’s called in mark was thrown from a lofty pinnacle of the temple Philip was hung up against a pillar at the Hierapolis in the province of Phrygia Bartholomew was flayed alive Andrew was bound to a cross and left to die Jude was shot to death with arrows Mathias the Apostle chosen to replace Judas was first stoned and then beheaded Barnabas was stoned to death by the Jews at Salonika Paul that former enemy of Christ after a variety of tortures and persecutions was finally beheaded in Rome Peter was crucified this is Jesus said he would in John 21 in Rome Thomas the former skeptic of the Resurrection was run through the body with a lamp at the core Mondale in the East Indies for preaching the gospel the disciples sealed their testimony that Christ was alive with their own blood they went to their graves still affirming that the events which they had witnessed had actually occurred people may be willing to die for something they think is true but nobody willingly dies for something they know is alive if anybody knew whether or not Jesus was alive after his resurrection it would have been the disciples they were in a unique position historically that allowed them to know whether what they were saying was true or not they were there the force of this evidence is cumulative if I was to present these arguments individually one might be inclined to argue that the evidence was inconclusive that mirror archaeological evidence does not convince them that the Bible is truly the Word of God and that’s valid but all of these evidences when taken together build a strong case for the trustworthiness of the Bible but the main evidence for the Bible’s trustworthiness is fulfilled prophecy fulfilled prophecy is something that sets the Bible apart from every other religious book there are 26 other religious books that people of faith believe are divinely inspired of these 26 books not one of them not a single one contains any specific fulfilled prophecies the Bible however is filled with hundreds of specific detailed prophecies that were written hundreds of years ago for their fulfillment in fact an amazing 27% of the Bible more than one out of every four verses contains what was predicted of prophecy at the time it was written in the authors of the Bible did not just predict some vague things like Notre Damas or Dean Dixon who by the way have proven to be wrong over and over again they were very specific consider some of the more than 100 different and very specific prophecies made concerning the Messiah who the Old Testament prophesied would come the Old Testament foretold hundreds of years in advance very specific details about the Messiah’s ancestry that he would be born of the seed of Abraham the Lord said to Abraham leave your country your people and your father’s household and go to the land I will show you I will make you into a great nation and I will bless you I will make your name great and you will be a blessing and I will bless those who bless you and whoever curses you I will curse and all the peoples on earth will be blessed through you Genesis chapter 12 verses 1 through 3 that he be of the tribe of Judah the scepter will not depart from Judah or the ruler staff from between his feet until he comes to whom it belongs and the obedience of the nations is his Genesis chapter 49 verse 10 that he’d be of the house of David when your days are over and you rest with your fathers I will raise up your offspring to succeed you who will come from your own body and I will establish this kingdom 2nd Samuel 12 7 the city in which he would be born but you Bethlehem though you are small among the clans of Judah all of you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel whose origins are from a mould from ancient times Micah that he’d come while the temple was still standing see I will send my messenger who will prepare the way before me then suddenly the Lord you are seeking will come to this temple the messenger of the Covenant whom he desire will come says the Lord Almighty Malachi that he would be born of a virgin therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign the Virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son i’ma call him Immanuel Isaiah that he would perform miracles then will the eyes of the blind be open and the ears of the Deaf unstopped then will the lame leap like a deer and the mute tongues shout for joy water will gush forth from the wilderness and the streams in the desert Isaiah chapter 35 verses five and six that he’d be rejected by his own people the stone the builders rejected has become the capstone psalm 118 22 and now to you who believe this stone is precious but to those who do not believe the stone the builders rejected has become the capstone first Peter the precise time in history when he would die seventy sevens are decreed for your people in your holy city to finish transgression to put an end to sin to atone for wickedness to bring in everlasting righteousness to seal up vision and prophecy and to anoint the most holy no one understand this from the issuing of the decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until the Anointed One the ruler comes will be seven sevens and sixty-two sevens it will be rebuilt with streets and a trench but in times of trouble after the sixty-two sevens The Anointed One will be cut off and will have nothing the people of the ruler who will come will destroy the city and the sanctuary the and will come like a flood war will continue until the end and desolations have been decreed daniel 226 483 years after the declaration to reconstruct the city of Jerusalem in 444 BC this was fulfilled to the very year how he would die dogs have surrounded me a band of evil men has encircled me they have pierced my hands in my feet I can count all my bones people stare and gloat over me they divide my garments among them and cast lots for my clothing psalm 22 verses 16 through 18 and i will pour out of the house of david and inhabitants of jerusalem a spirit of grace and supplication they will look on me that one may have pierced and they will mourn for him as one mourns for an only child and grieve bitterly for him as one grieves for a firstborn son zechariah that he would rise from the dead because she will not abandon me to the grave nobody let her Holy One see decay Psalm because you will not abandon me to the grave nor we let your Holy One see decay you have made known to me the path of life you will fill me with joy in your presence brothers I can tell you confidently that the patriarch David died and was buried and his tomb is here to this day but he was a prophet and knew that God had promised him on oath that he would place one of his descendants on his throne seeing what was ahead he spoke of the resurrection of the Christ that he was on abandoned to the grave toward his body see decay God has raised this jesus to life and we are all witnesses of the fact Acts chapter 2 verses 27 to 32 there are many more and all these prophesies hundreds of others have been literally fulfilled the skeptic says maybe Christians inserted those prophecies back into the Old Testament after Jesus lived not a chance how do we know there exists today hundreds of manuscript copies of the Old Testament that predate the time of Christ’s birth these ancient copies of the Old Testament dating back to the 3rd century BC verify that these prophecies concerning the Messiah were already in place in 1947 a shepherd boy tending his father’s sheep in the Quran north and to the west of the Dead Sea in Israel made an amazing discovery while looking for a lost sheep there in Qumran in a hillside cave that had laid untouched for nearly 2,000 years he discovered an ancient collection of handwritten copies of the Old Testament these scrolls had been hidden in the cave by the Essenes a Jewish sect living in Qumran 2,000 years ago these scrolls and writings now known as the Dead Sea Scrolls represented every book of the Old Testament except the book of Esther and are considered one of the greatest discoveries in modern times it’s manuscript evidence like the Isaiah scroll that dates back to about 100 BC that proves beyond the shadow of doubt that the Old Testament with prophecies concerning Messiah was finished long before Jesus was even born the skeptic says perhaps Jesus was not the Messiah but just accidentally or even deliberately set out to fulfill these prophecies first it’s hard to think of any person deliberately setting out to fulfill prophecies that would result in such a short life and an excruciatingly drawn-out death on a cross secondly how does a man deliberately choose the lineage he is born into the time period in which is born the city in which he is born was the fulfillment of these prophecies in accident Peter stoner a mathematician and professor of science at Westmont College in his book science speaks calculated that the odds of a single man fulfilling just eight of these prophecies that Jesus fulfilled as the mathematical and probability of one in the 10th to the 17th that is a huge number one in 10 to the 17th power that’s a 1 of 17 zeroes after it the fact that these prophecies and hundreds of others have been fulfilled even though they were spoken hundreds of even thousands of years ago before their fulfillment is strong evidence that a God who is all-knowing and all-powerful orchestrated the Bible’s completion only the God of the Bible knows the end from the beginning I am God and there is none like me declaring the end from the beginning and from ancient times things that are not yet done Isaiah 46 verses 9 and 10 now that we have proven without a doubt that the Bible is the Word of God and completely reliable and trustworthy we can also know with 100% assurance that the Bible prophecies that have yet to be fulfilled will be fulfilled the more one knows about what the Bible says about the end times and the more one stays informed on what is prison going on in this world the more one realizes that we are being punched to a period of time which the Bible says more than it about any other period in human history and according to the signs in the Bible we are living on borrowed time at no time in history were times more perilous on a global scale than they are now there have always been wars and rumors of wars but never has the potential for the utter destruction of the human race been more profound we’re living in the last days according to the Bible Bible prophecy outlines future history in stunning detail the Bible claims that all prophecy will be fulfilled exactly as foretold with 100% accuracy 100% of the time no other sacred writings of any other religious belief system apart from biblical Christianity make such a claim about one third of the Bible is prophetic in nature for 20 centuries scholars and skeptics from all walks of life in all nations in all generations had to debate it the truth of the Bible yet in all those generations from all those scholars and skeptics given all the accumulated knowledge of Medicine history archaeology science have yet to disprove a single word of the Bible’s 30 1102 verses think of it no book in human history has endured more challenges to its accuracy across the centuries since the Bible makes its unique claim of 100% accuracy across the board and across the centuries the Bible contains nearly 800 thousand words each has stood the test of the centuries no prophecy of Scripture has ever failed history reveals that Israel missed the coming of the Lord the first time how sad that fact is it would be sadder still for us today to be found ignorant about his second coming and the end times when he has given us so much information concerning it among Jesus’s last words his disciples prior to his crucified was an exhortation to watch for his return and what I say unto you I say unto all watch mark so just what signs that Jesus tell us to watch for the Bible gives us hundreds of signs to watch for that show that we are living in the end times and that we are living in the final generation that will see all these signs happening for times sake I’m going to just examine the top paint of signs technology is advancing so fast that by the time something comes on the market it is already obsolete and the product G own is quickly several technological generations behind the Bible says that there will be a great increase in knowledge during the last days Daniel chapter 12 verse 4 says but Thou O Daniel shut up the words and seal the book even to the time of the end many shall run to and fro and knowledge shall be increased the primary application of knowledge increased is in reference to people understanding the prophecies of the Book of Daniel however many Bible scholars believe that this prophecy also applies to increasing knowledge of science medicine travel and technology we are truly living in the information age even the most skeptical mind must admit that knowledge is exploding in all directions it is said that 80% of the world’s total knowledge has been brought forth in the last decade and that 90% of all the scientists who have ever lived are alive today this is certainly true for the day and age we are living it’s incredible when you consider the total accumulation of all of Earth’s knowledge now doubles every 18 to 22 months the knowledge of the world is increasing dramatically and this is exactly what the Bible says will happen in the last days just look how fast technology has changed in the lab hundred years online the chief means of transportation for centuries after remained the wheel and the horse in America covered wagons blazed a trail to the west railroads were made possible by watch discovery of steam power early trains chugged along at 15 miles an hour many people were shocked said that man was never intended to travel and steam was also used to drive big boats no longer depended upon the whims of the wind’s boats could move under their own power to wherever the world’s rivers and oceans would carry them the gasoline engine completely changed land transportation people greeted the whore Harwich with cries of get a horse but the automobile was here to stay the very appearance of our city streets began to change as this scene taken by a pioneer cameraman shows and the lightweight powerful gasoline engine helped bring about an even more amazing development in transportation the airplane this original newsreel film shows how in

liftoff of the space shuttle Discovery returning to the space station paving the way for future missions beyond every the Space Shuttle begins journey back into orbit the Bible tells us in the last days perilous times shall come but realize this that in the last days perilous times will come for men will be lovers of self lovers of money boastful arrogant revilers disobedient to parents ungrateful unholy unloving irreconcilable malicious gossips without self-control brutal haters of good treacherous reckless conceited lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God holding to a form of godliness although they have denied its power avoid such men as these 2nd Timothy chapter 3 verses 1 through 5 these words were written from nearly 2,000 years ago but they perfectly describe the times in which we are presently living in if one did not know better you would think that these words were taken directly from our current news headlines while we’ll be like during the end of the stage just before the return of Christ Jesus told what this time will be like but as the days of Noah were so also will the coming of the Son of man be Matthew chapter 24 verse 37 so the last days will be similar to Noah’s day just before the worldwide flood so to understand better the last days we need to look at how people were living during that generation the Bible says in Genesis chapter 6 verses 11 through 13 that the earth also was corrupt before God and the earth was filled with violence and God looked upon the earth and behold it was corrupt for all flesh had corrupted his way of and God said unto Noah the end of all flesh has come before me for the earth is filled with violence through them and behold I will destroy them with the earth the whole world during this time was filled with violence today we live in a world under the constant threat of terrorism no longer is terrorism limited to one region in the world such as the Middle East but now it reaches around the world our world is filled with violence just like in the days of Noah let us consider now the state of affairs at the time Noah lived life will be just like the time we are living in now it will occur during a time of prosperity when people are buying selling marrying planting and harvesting this has to occur before the tribulation since the earth will be devastated by the judgments and wrath of God during the Tribulation Period for example during the tribulation almost all the grass and trees will be destroyed almost all the water will be turned to blood undrinkable those will not be normal times they ate drank and married right up until the time noah entered the ark then the destruction of the flood suddenly came and they were destroyed in noah’s day there was plenty of warning 120 years to be exact God has been warning us for nearly 2,000 years and just like in the days of Noah we are living on borrowed time there will be great earthquakes famines and pestilences in various places and fearful events and great signs from heaven Luke 21 verse 11 and there will be signs in the Sun and in the moon and in the Stars and upon the earth distress of Nations with perplexity the sea and the waves roaring men’s hearts failing them for fear and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth for the powers of heaven will be shaken Luke 21 verse 25 56 this is the least respected category o science for several reasons for one thing many people simply shrug their shoulders and say all these things are merely the beginning of birth pains 1924 verse 8 note that Jesus said these signs will be like birth pains that is they will increase in frequency and in intensity as the time draws near for his return in other words there will be more intense earthquakes and more frequently that is exactly what is happening today it seems like almost weekly if not daily there’s a major earthquake somewhere in the world just like good things they seem to be happening more frequently and with greater intensity but it’s not just earthquakes it’s also hurricanes tornados typhoons fires floods and droughts and other related events and the after effect of these disasters like diseases famine displacement and death the situation that exists today in the Middle East is another sign that indicates we are living in the last days before the return of Jesus Christ tensions today in the Middle East hinge on various religious beliefs the current crisis in Israel is boiling over because of the hatred of the Jews by the surrounding countries countries around this tiny nation on Israel and the Jews bite off to face the earth there is also a continuing struggle over Jerusalem the Palestinians won’t Jerusalem as their capital as push for a Palestinian state the Jews do not want to give up Jerusalem or Israel the location of their holy land both Israelis and the Palestinians claim Jerusalem as their holy city yet only Israel has the backing of the Word of God which says that Jerusalem belongs to Israel alone in Zechariah chapter 12 verses two to three the Lord declares behold I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem and that day I will make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces though all the people thereof be gathered together against it since the creation of this nation Israel has never been arrests constant conflict wars and problems plagued this little country nuclear weapons have become a major issue in the world we live in today amazingly the Bible already predicted this reality ahead of time the Bible seems to indicate that nuclear warfare will be seen during the tribulation hour so the fact that this is a major problem in our world so that we’re drawing near to Christ’s return nuclear proliferation is one of the single biggest threats the United States faces countries such as Iran and North Korea are actively developing nuclear weapons and terrorists are actively seeking to get their hands on these weapons is a dangerous situation but it’s also a sign that we are living in the end times nation will rise against nation and Kingdom against Kingdom and there will be great earthquakes in in various places plagues and famines and there will be terrors and great signs from heaven those 21 verses 10 through 11 and he stood on the sand of the seashore and I saw a beast coming up out of the sea having ten horns and seven heads and on his head were ten diadem’s and on his head were blasphemous names and the Beast which I saw her like those of a bear and it smelled like the mouth of a lion and the dragon gave him the power and his throne great Authority Revelation chapter 13 verses 1 through 2 as for the ten horns out of this kingdom 10 Kings will arise and another will rise after them he will be different from the previous ones and will subdue three kings he will speak out against the Most High and wear down the Saints of the highest one and he will intend to make alterations in times and in the law they will be given into the hands for a time times and half a time Daniel chapter 7 verses 24 through 25 the Bible says in the end times there will be a revived Roman Empire it will be made up of a ten nation Confederacy and will seek to dominate and control the Middle East and the whole world this will be the one world government predicted by the prophet Daniel with the revived Roman Empire comes a new and economic growth order the revived Roman Empire will seek to control the economy of the world securing its power globally today we are in that generation is lived to see the beginnings of the revived Roman Empire they signed so amazing it’s very hard for anyone to deny that these are truly the last days the most important signs are the ones that relate to Israel because God uses the Jews throughout the Scriptures as his prophetic time clock by this I mean that very often when the Lord is revealing an important event that will take place in the future he will point to the Jewish people and state that when a certain thing happened to them the important event will also occur the first is the re-establishment of the State of Israel which occurred on May 14th 1948 Jesus singled out this event as the one that would signal his soon return his prophecy is contained in the fig tree parable which he presented in his Olivet discourse jesus said to his disciples they learn the parable from the fig tree when it’s branch has already become tender and puts forth its leaves you know that summer is near so you too when you see all these things recognize that he is near right at the door truly I say to you this generation will not pass away to all these things take place heaven and earth will pass away but my words will not pass away Matthew chapter 24 verses 32 to 35 the day before he delivered his speech he had put a curse on a barren fig tree causing it to wither now in the morning when he is returning to the city he became hungry seeing a lone fig tree by the road he came to it and found nothing on it except leaves only and he said to it no longer shall there ever be any fruit from you and at once the fig tree withered Matthew chapter 21 verses 18 through 19 this was a symbolic prophecy that God would soon pour out his wrath upon the Jewish people because of their spiritual Berenice in rejecting his son the next day Jesus reminded his disciples of the fig tree he said to watch for it to bloom again in other words he said watch for the rebirth of Israel he indicated that when the fig tree blooms again he would be at the gates of heaven ready to return equally significant he added an interesting observation truly I say to you this generation will not pass away until all these things take place Matthew 24 verse 34 what generation the generation that sees the fig tree blossom we are that generation the fig tree Israel has blossomed Jesus is at the gates the signs related to the State of Israel are prolific and very important the most frequently repeated prophecy of the Old Testament is the prediction that the Jewish people will be regathered from the four corners of the earth in the end times then it will happen on that day that the Lord will again recover the second time with his hand the remnant of his people who will remain from Assyria Egypt pathrose cush Elam Shinar come off and from the islands of the sea and he will lift up a standard for the nations and assemble the banished ones of Israel and will gather the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth Isaiah chapter 11 verses 10 through 12 the Bible states at a consequence of the regather be the re-establishment of the State of Israel before she was in labor she gave birth before her pain came she delivered a male child who has heard such a thing who has seen such things shall the earth be made to give birth in one day or shall a nation be born at once for soon as ion was in labor she gave birth to her children shall I bring to the time of birth and not cause delivery says the Lord shall I who cause delivery shut up the womb says your God Isaiah chapter 66 verses 7 through 9 everyone should study about just how significant this prophecy is the relevance of this cannot be understated no nation or people have ever revived themselves after such a long period of time this prophecy is one of the most amazing fulfilled offices of our day God slowly started fulfilling his promise to regather the scattered Jews about the end of the 19th century beginning around 1901 Jews from around the world started going back to the promised land God breathed new life and spirit into the Jews on May 14 1948 exactly 2,500 20 years since the end of the Babylonian captivity the Jews shocked the world they proclaimed the independence of the reborn State of Israel even while six Arab nations simultaneously prepared to invade the tiny country to destroy it at its birth in a sudden and unprovoked Asaf the armies of Syria Egypt Iraq Jordan and volunteer forces from Saudi Arabia converged upon Israel it was David versus Goliath all over again to any intelligent observer it was obvious the Arabs would make short work of the undermanned under-equipped Jews but Israel was to survive it would take a miracle by God’s grace the outnumbered and outgunned Israelis for victorious humanly speaking there is no way to explain the well-trained heavily armed Muslim army that outnumbered them ten to one the restoration of Israel is a modern miracle in every way this continued survival is an even greater miracle never in history has such a thing happened from the being scattered around the world for over 2,500 years they return to the original piece of real estate that God had promised them amazingly their culture customs religious and dietary laws remained intact and in spite of living under horrible conditions in Lance it did not belong to them a sense of nationhood survived in their hearts with the restoration of Israel on may 14 1948 God started a prophetic countdown to his second coming when the six pointed star of David assented for the first time over the newly established nation of Israel the countdown to the end of the present age began there can be no mistake the rebirth of Israel is the key sign around which all other end time prophetic signs began to appear never before has this explicitly predicted event appeared in history and it will never happen again that is it it can’t be undone Israel can’t unbe come an Asian they can’t stop speaking Hebrew again in other words once the rebirth of Israel was set into motion all the other predicted events also fell into place and they all lead to one final conclusion the second coming of Jesus Christ Jesus gave us the restoration for the nation of Israel and hundreds of other warning signs that will take place shortly before his second coming these signs as I have shown you are rapidly unfolding and increasing in intensity and frequency just as the Lord said they would there’s no way to escape the inclusion that we are living on borrowed time the signs of the times are upon us they are shouting for our attention are you ready nothing so because yesterday where you
