The exact year, month and day our Lord would present Himself to the Jews as their Redeemer, exactly or precisely 173,880 days from the day it was made.
Although we should be looking for or anticipating the Rapture and the Second Coming of our Lord, there are certain signs and warnings that our Lord gave us that will take place before He comes a second time.
1. In Matthew 24:14 the Lord said that the Gospel would be preached to all the nations.
2. In MAT 24:4-5 we read that false Christ and false prophets and cults will be everywhere.
3. In Matthew 24:6-8 we read that there will be an increase in wars.
4. In MAT 24:7 the Lord spoke of increases in famines.
5. In MAT 24:7 we also read that there will be an increase in earthquakes.
The Universal Almanac tells us that there were only 21 earthquakes of major strength between the years 1000 and 1800.
Between 1800 and 1900, in just 100 years, there were 18 major earthquakes.
Between 1900 and 1950, there were 33 major earthquakes - almost as many as the preceding 1850 years.
Between 1950 and 1991 there were 93 major earthquakes.
Between 1991 to the present, there have been over 500 major earthquakes.
6. In MAT 24:32-33 Jesus spoke of Israel's rebirth.
The Jews were scattered all around during the Jewish-Roman war of A.D.70 just as Jesus prophesied in Luke 21:24.
Exactly as the Bible prophesied, the Nation of Israel was reborn on May 14, 1948, another day I may prove to you is found in the Bible.
7. In 2TI 3:1-5 we read, "But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come. For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, etc.
8. In DAN 12:4 we are told that in the last days there will be an enormous increase in travel, and education shall be vastly increased.
10. In 2TH 2:3-5, the Bible talks about an increase in apostasy or living for self and pleasure rather than living for God.
JOH 6:28-29, They said therefore to Him, "What shall we do, that we may work the works of God?" - Do your will Lord? Jesus answered and said to them, "This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He has sent."
JOH 6:40 "For this is the will of My Father, that everyone who beholds the Son and believes in Him, may have eternal life; and I Myself will raise him up on the last day."
GAL 5:14, For the whole Law is fulfilled in one word, in the statement, " You shall love your neighbor as yourself." If you cannot or do not love even your enemies, you have a very serious spiritual problem and you are living in sin, MAT 5:44.
1JO 3:14-15, We know that we have passed out of death into life, because we love our fellow believer. He who does not love abides in death. Everyone who hates his fellow believer is a murderer; and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him.
1PE 4:8 Above all, keep fervent in your love for one another, because love covers a multitude of sins.
10. Another sign of the last days is that in 2TH 2:3-5, the Bible talks about an increase in apostasy or living for self and pleasure rather than living for God.
11. In MAT 24:37-39 we read of unrestrained violence in the last days.
12. In IJo 2:15-18, it tells of the coming of the Antichrist. This is an important and final sign of the end times. - A One-World Government run by ONE man known as the "beast."
The Antichrist will cause all to worship him and his "image." Those who refuse WILL DIE!
13. REV 13:16-17 tells us of a universal mark or number that all will be forced to take, or they will not be able to buy or sell.
REV 13:16-17, And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand, or on their forehead, and he provides that no one should be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name.
14. In MAT 24:31 we read, "And then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky with power and great glory."
They don't have to be afraid because before this terrible time, Jesus Christ comes (the Rapture) and takes His bride (all believers) to their eternal home.
A new “mystery man,” named [Alex sif' pras] Alexis Tsipras who has just recently come out from nowhere has taken a charismatic control of Greece.
He is also being backed-up and supported by another individual who is very wealthy and powerful, but as Satan does, this man has tried to keep himself behind the scenes, as he pulls the strings of political and religious puppets, his name is George Soros.
1. He gives billions and billions of dollars to left-wing causes against the USA and Jews and Christians. Soros has given more than billion to left-wing groups.
2. Influence on U.S. elections: Soros once said that removing President George W. Bush from office in 2004 was the “central focus of my life.” He put his money where his mouth is, giving .58 million to various 527 groups dedicated to defeating Bush.
His early financial support helped jump-start Barack Obama’s political career. Soros hosted a 2004 fund-raiser for Obama when he was running for the Illinois Senate and gave the maximum-allowed contribution within hours of Obama’s announcement that he was running for President.
3. Wants to curtail American sovereignty: Soros would like nothing better than for America to become subservient to international bodies.
4. Media Matters: Soros is a financial backer of Media Matters for America, a progressive media watchdog group that wants to take away America's freedom.
5. Soros has been a major funder of MoveOn.org, a progressive advocacy group and political action committee that raises millions for liberal candidates.
6. He gave millions of dollars to the Center for American Progress: Headed by John Podesta, White House chief of staff under President Clinton, the CAP has been instrumental in providing progressive talking points and policy positions for the Obama administration.
7. He is also an environmental extremist: He was instrumental in getting 0 billion for Obama’s stimulus package condoning socialism and communism.
ISA 14:12-14. - be like the most high - make earth a heaven on earth with Satan be the only God.
8. America Coming Together (ACT): Soros gave nearly million to this group with the express purpose of defeating President Bush.
A massive get-out-the-vote effort, ACT’s door-to-door canvassing teams included numerous felons, its voter registration drives were riddled with fraud, and it handed out fliers and made misleading taped phone calls to voters.
9. Currency manipulation: A large part of Soros’ multibillion-dollar fortune has come from manipulating currencies.
Known as “The Man who Broke the Bank of England,” Soros initiated a British financial crisis by dumping 10 billion sterling, forcing the devaluation of the currency and gaining a billion-dollar profit.
10. Delusions: Soros has repeatedly said that he sees himself as a messianic figure.
Alexis Tsipras, not only has he formed an alliance with George Soros but also with Russia and is talking with Pope Francis about a peace treaty between Israel and the Palestinians.
His party in Greece is called SYRIZA which means the party for the left radicals, promoting socialism and communism, both designed to take away human rights and freedom.
