When you look at everything that’s going on in the world right now, do wonder, “What’s going on?” Interestingly enough, Jesus predicted everything that’s happening today almost 2000 years ago! It’s all in the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke. Paul and Peter also warned us about the Last Days, as did John, the Revelator, and the prophets of the Old Testament!
Here is a rundown or summary of the week’s news matched to something in the Bible. I pray that your eyes will be opened and realize that Bible Prophecy is not meant to scare us, but to warn us and give us hope of a better world to come. Let’s dig in…
The Olivet Discourse — Signs of the Last Days
Let’s start with Matthew 24…
Jesus had just finished telling off the Jewish leaders in chapter 23. (By the way, that’s always a fun read as it describes today’s religious leaders.) Then chapter 24 starts the look into the future…
As Jesus was leaving the Temple grounds, his disciples pointed out to him the various Temple buildings. 2 But he responded, “Do you see all these buildings? I tell you the truth, they will be completely demolished. Not one stone will be left on top of another!” (Incidentally, this happened in 70 AD. Prophecy fulfilled!)
3 Later, Jesus sat on the Mount of Olives. His disciples came to him privately and said, “Tell us, when will all this happen? What sign will signal your return and the end of the world (or age)?”
4 Jesus told them, “Don’t let anyone mislead you, 5 for many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah.’ They will deceive many…
23 “Then if anyone tells you, ‘Look, here is the Messiah,’ or ‘There he is,’ don’t believe it. 24 For false messiahs and false prophets will rise up and perform great signs and wonders so as to deceive, if possible, even God’s chosen ones. 25 See, I have warned you about this ahead of time.
26 “So if someone tells you, ‘Look, the Messiah is out in the desert,’ don’t bother to go and look. Or, ‘Look, he is hiding here,’ don’t believe it!Matthew 24:1-5, 23-26 NLT
False Messiahs, False Prophets, False Preachers…
“The talks about a “messiah” that is revealed in Israel are nonsense and irresponsible sensationalism that is nothing more than clickbait. A young Rabbi that never called himself a messiah surrounded by people who never say he is the messiah in a country where hardly anyone has heard of him. In Matthew 24 verse 5 Jesus warned of those who will come in His name saying they are the messiah. No Rabbi in Israel is coming in Jesus name! Let’s read the Bible to be informed of the future.”Amir Tsarfati on Telegram
Wars and Threats (Rumors) of Wars
6 And you will hear of wars and threats of wars, but don’t panic. Yes, these things must take place, but the end won’t follow immediately. 7 Nation will go to war against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.”Matthew 24:6-7 NLT
In Greek, the word “Nation” is “ethnos” — from where we get the word for ethnicity or ethnic. Consequently, that covers not just a country invading another country, but an ethnic group fighting another ethnic group. Currently, we have…

- Civil Unrest Continues in Columbia…
“Five years after a peace deal that ended many decades of civil war in Colombia, close to 5 million people are still displaced by armed conflict, and violence continues across the country.
“On top of this, in the past few years Colombia has become a refuge for more than 2 million Venezuelans forced to leave their country due to political turmoil. This, in turn, has caused a lack of access to food and essentials like healthcare. Sadly, many of the Venezuelan migrant women have found themselves experiencing sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) in Colombia.”Tearfund.org
“I predict in the foreseeable future chaos in Europe due to the inevitable clash between the rise of the deep right and the Islamic population with the weak liberal progressive left in between. The war in Ukraine is the first full scale war in Europe since World War Two. That will contribute to the growing instability as prices of energy will continue to rise.”Amir Tsarfati on Telegram
Russia and Iran’s Military Ties Rise to New LevelsForeshadows Report on Telegram
“Last Friday, US National Security Council spokesman John Kirby stated that Russia is supplying “an unprecedented level of military and technical support” to Iran.
“The relationship works both ways—Russia is providing advanced training and equipment, while Iran is equipping Russia with drones for use against Ukraine.
“Also of concern is the fact Russia has been training Iranian pilots in the use of Russia’s Su-35 fighter jets. If Iran purchases the Su-35 for its military, the regime would pose an increased threat to the Middle East.
All of this, of course, fits with the fact Russia and Iran are two key members of the military alliance that will someday invade Israel, according to Ezekiel 38.”

Watch for the Signs of the Last Days!
37 “Where will this happen, Lord?” the disciples asked.
Jesus replied, “Just as the gathering of vultures shows there is a carcass nearby, so these signs indicate that the end is near.”Luke 17:37 NLT
Friend, the vultures are gathering! We are living in the last days! Check out the videos below for more in-depth prophetic news coverage.
Nonetheless, all this is not to scare you, but to warn you and give you hope. Likewise, in the final chapter of the Bible, Jesus said…
12 “Look, I am coming soon, bringing my reward with me to repay all people according to their deeds. 13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.”
14 Blessed are those who wash their robes. They will be permitted to enter through the gates of the city and eat the fruit from the tree of life.Revelation 22:12-14 NLT
Is YOUR robe washed in the Blood of the Lamb?
If you’re not sure if you’re saved or not, if you truly want to be born again and have the assurance of salvation, receive the Holy Spirit, feel His Shalom — a peace that surpasses all understanding, and get a 1-way, non-stop ticket to Heaven after you die, or that you won’t be left behind at the Rapture, which can happen at any moment, this is what you have to do…
Believe. Repent. Be Baptized. Receive the Holy Spirit.
- Believe — have Faith — that Jesus is the Christ and He died taking your sins away forever and that He rose from the dead 3 days later.
- Repent of your sins — stop sinning! Do a complete 180-degree turn in your life and surrender your life to Him. When you ask Jesus to forgive you He will. ALL your sins will be wiped clean — past, present, and future! And All means ALL!
- Be Baptized by water baptism — show the world and yourself that you have died to your old life and are born again in Christ.
- Receive the gift of Holy Spirit in your heart.
