#4 There would come a time when there would be a re-birth of Israel. Israel had not been a nation for hundreds and hundreds of years, but in 70 a.d. when the Romans destroyed the temple and the people were scattered throughout the world they lost possession of the nation of Israel. But Isaiah 66:8 says, “Who has heard of 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?” Yes, on May 15,1948 Israel became a nation.
#5 The Jews will return to that land after being scattered. Jeremiah 23:8 says, “but, As the Lord lives who brought up and led the descendants of the house of Israel from the north country and from all the countries where I had driven them. North of Israel is the U.S.S.R. and over the years they have been coming in droves from Russia back into the land that God promised.
#6 The Bible tells us that there will be a worldwide communication. The Bible tells us over in Revelations 11 that God in the end day is going to send two witnesses into the streets of Jerusalem and those two witnesses will be killed and the entire world will see them for 3 1/2 days laying on the streets and nobody will pick their bodies up. Did you know until the 1900’s that was absolutely impossible? From the time of Adam until the 1900’s man walked or man rode horses and animals. Now, we can literally see into the streets of Jerusalem or anywhere in the world. No matter where you are, you can instantly see what’s going on there.
#7 In Matthew 24:4-14 it says, deception will be epidemic. The entire world is deceived about the things of the kingdom of God. They are deceived about Jesus Christ. There are false Christ’s and false prophets like the world has never seen before, everywhere you go.
#8 There will be famines and pestilence. Every night on television you can see children starving and begging for food. You can see it every night and America pays farmers not to grow food, so that they can control the price.
#9 The Bible says, there will be increase of earthquakes. In the 15th century they recorded 115 earthquakes, in the 16th century they recorded 253, in the 17th century they recorded 378, in the 18th century they recorded 540, and in the 19th century they recorded 2,119 earthquakes. The Bible says the earth is in labor pains waiting for the day that the children of God will be redeemed out of this world.
When God created the earth, the earth was straight up and down. The earth was covered by a thin layer called a firmament that surrounded the earth, the oxygen was so pure that it allowed men to live and to flourish for hundreds of years. But after the flood the earth was tilted on it’s axis, the firmament dissolved and at that point in time man’s life span began to decrease. The oxygen level began to change, everything on earth changed because the earth was tilted on it’s axis.
The earthquake that hit Japan recently, it literally moved it 8 ft and the earth was tilted 4 more inches off of it’s axis. Every time there is a major earthquake, it causes the earth to shift and that shift effects the sun and the moon’s effect upon the earth. It effects the way the waves move. It causes what we are seeing today, increases in tornadoes, tide all waves, earthquakes and hurricanes. The earth is in birth pains, because the time for the birth of the children of God is getting close. I don’t know when, the word of God doesn’t tell us. But it tells us we will know the seasons.
