World Watch 12.31.22: Prophetic, Last Days News Just Like Jesus Said

It’s New Year’s Eve 2022 and it seems the world is coming to an end. Reported news stories sound like they are ripped from Jesus’ Olivet Discourse in the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke. As your read these few, you have to admit that the birth pains are getting stronger and more frequent. A lot of these fall under the “You can’t make this stuff up!” 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

At the Mount of Olives, Jesus’ disciples asked him…

What sign will signal your return and the end of the world?”…

He replied…

“Don’t let anyone mislead you, for many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah.’ They will deceive many.

Matthew 24:4-7 NLT

False Messiahs, Prophets & Teachings

Beware of false teachers! Ask the Holy Spirit for discernment!

Wars and Threats (Rumors) of Wars

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. Nation will go to war against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.”

Matthew 24:6-7 NLT
Ukraine reported that Russia bombed civilian areas of Kyiv/Kiev. On the other hand, there is Russian information that during the attack, something flew into the hotel where Western military advisers were staying. And that at the moment, there would be an evacuation of foreign experts.

In Greek, the word for “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…

Next: Earthquakes & Famines & Plagues

11 There will be great earthquakes, and there will be famines and plagues in many lands, and there will be terrifying things and great miraculous signs from heaven.

Luke 21:11 NLT

The Greek word for “earthquakes” is “seismos” which also covers floods, sea turbulence, hurricanes, blizzards, wildfires, and volcanoes. Economic woes lead to food crises and famines.

As in the Days of Lot

28 “And the world will be as it was in the days of Lot. People went about their daily business—eating and drinking, buying and selling, farming and building— 29 until the morning Lot left Sodom. Then fire and burning sulfur rained down from heaven and destroyed them all. 30 Yes, it will be ‘business as usual’ right up to the day when the Son of Man is revealed.

Luke 17:28-29 NLT (The First Sin City)

Jesus said…

“But all this is only the first of the birth pains, with more to come.”

Matthew 24:8 NLT

Increased Evil & Lawlessness

Paul wrote…

For this lawlessness is already at work secretly, and it will remain secret until the one who is holding it back steps out of the way.

2 Thessalonians 2:7 NLT

Increased Christians Persecution

“Then you will be arrested, persecuted, and killed. You will be hated all over the world because you are my followers (on account of my name).”

Matthew 24:9 NLT

Jesus’ first warning on Christian Persecution was in the Sermon on the Mount…

10 God blesses those who are persecuted for doing right,
    for the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs.

11 “God blesses you when people mock you and persecute you and lie about you and say all sorts of evil things against you because you are my followers. 12 Be happy about it! Be very glad! For a great reward awaits you in heaven. And remember, the ancient prophets were persecuted in the same way.

Matthew 5:11-12 NLT

Israel Watch

Believe it or not, global bible prophecy centers on Israel. Ironically, while most of the nations are going through government turmoil and division, Israel seems to be the only country that has a stable, hard-line, conservative government.

Happening NOW!

A long time from now you will be called into action. In the distant future you will swoop down on the land of Israel, which will be enjoying peace after recovering from war and after its people have returned from many lands to the mountains of Israel.

Ezekiel 38:8 NLT

Watch for the Signs of the Last Days!

The Olivet Discourse was not so much for the sake of answering His disciples questions. Obviously, it was meant for us today — our generation living in the Last Daysl

Jesus told us …

waiting for Jesus in the Last Days

Wait patiently for the Lord.
    Be brave and courageous.
    Yes, wait patiently for the Lord. Psalm 27:14

37 “When the Son of Man returns, it will be like it was in Noah’s day. 38 In those days before the flood, the people were enjoying banquets and parties and weddings right up to the time Noah entered his boat. 39 People didn’t realize what was going to happen until the flood came and swept them all away. That is the way it will be when the Son of Man comes.

40 “Two men will be working together in the field; one will be taken, the other left. 41 Two women will be grinding flour at the mill; one will be taken, the other left.

42 “So you, too, must keep watch! For you don’t know what day your Lord is coming. 43 Understand this: If a homeowner knew exactly when a burglar was coming, he would keep watch and not permit his house to be broken into. 44 You also must be ready all the time, for the Son of Man will come when least expected.

45 “A faithful, sensible servant is one to whom the master can give the responsibility of managing his other household servants and feeding them. 46 If the master returns and finds that the servant has done a good job, there will be a reward. 47 I tell you the truth, the master will put that servant in charge of all he owns. 48 But what if the servant is evil and thinks, ‘My master won’t be back for a while,’ 49 and he begins beating the other servants, partying, and getting drunk? 50 The master will return unannounced and unexpected, 51 and he will cut the servant to pieces and assign him a place with the hypocrites. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Matthew 24:37-51 NLT

Nonetheless, all this is not to scare you, but to warn you and give you hope. Dig deeper…

Jesus is coming soon! You’re either ready or you’re not!

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.

Invite Jesus into Your Heart and Receive the Gift of Grace, Joy, Peace, and the Confident Hope of Eternal Life…
