World Watch Prophetic, Last Days News Just Like Jesus Said

World Watch 6.10.23: Prophetic, Last Days News Just Like Jesus Said

Unmistakably, the outstanding last days news story this week was the catastrophic destruction of the Nova Kakhovka Dam in the Dnipro River in Ukraine. Undoubtedly, this tragedy is worse than Hurricane Katrina and the Deepwater Horizon BP Oil Spill combined. Not only is it a humanitarian crisis, but an ecological, and environmental one, also. Naturally, what makes it worse is that it was man-made. Having said that, I will not speculate on the question as to who blew up the dam. However, I’ve embedded several videos and tweets that show what a heartbreaking disaster this is. As a result, the whole area will be suffering for months, if not years. We must pray for all those affected.

Nevertheless, at the bottom are more amazing stories of how the Good News of Jesus’ Salvation is spreading around the world. Thus, there is still a lot of work to do and I am grateful for the privilege to be a part of it in these days. Undeniably, our Confident Hope must come from our personal relationship with our Savior, Jesus Christ. Look for the Words of Encouragement at the end. Let’s dig in…

Last Days Bible Prophecies Coming True Right Now!

Besides the Old Testament Prophets, John the Revelator, and the Apostle Paul, Jesus clearly spoke about the last days in His Olivet Discourse found in Matthew 24, Luke 21, and Mark 13. Undoubtedly, we are seeing the CONVERGENCE of numerous events, prophesied in the Bible happening all at once!

Wars & Threats of Wars

Ukraine Counter Offensive

Around the World…

There is civil unrest and lawlessness in over 24 nations. I’ll just mention a few. For detailed information on each of these, check out the list of sources at the bottom.

Israel & the Middle East

“Safe Air Protocols” Coming to an End in Syrian Airspace

During the Syrian civil war, the US and Russia—and Israel and Russia—have had protocols in place over Syrian airspace in order to prevent potential clashes. Russia, the US, and Israel have all made sure to not end up in direct conflict with one another as they carry out their missions over Syria.

This has allowed Israel to do defensive airstrikes in Syria—strikes intended to destroy Iranian weapons shipped into Syria for use against Israel.

But a US military official says that Russia is bringing an end to the protocols. This hasn’t been confirmed yet, and the US and Israel are unsure of how this will affect future efforts to keep Israel safe.

But if the protocols do end, it would seriously diminish Israel’s ability to prevent Iran from building up weapons stockpiles in Syria, which is right on Israel’s northeastern border. Foreshadows

Earthquakes & “Seismic” Weather Events, Pestilence, Plagues & Famine

The Greek word for “earthquake” is “seismos”, which refers to seismic weather like tornadoes, hurricanes and violent storms as well as earthquakes and volcanoes.

Increased Evil , Satanic Lawlessness, Terrorism, Sexual Immorality, Apostasy, False Teachings, Corruption, and Deception in the Last Days

As humanity moves further from God, it becomes like Pluto — cold and dark — because it’s so far away from the source of love and light.”

Jesus said regarding the Last Days…

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

“Then you will be arrested, persecuted, and killed. You will be hated all over the world because you are my followers.”

Matthew 24:8-9 NLT

Increased Christian Persecution

Persecution is persecution. Obviously, we have it easy in North America compared to elsewhere in the world…

  • Cameroon: Boko Haram operates in the far north of the country. Church activities have been hindered or disrupted and Christian women risk abduction. Pray that the church will find ways to continue to meet and remain strong, influential and resilient despite the challenges they face.
  • Burkina Faso: Village Attacked Second Time
  • India: Hindu Extremists Jail Pastors, Close Churches
  • Eritrea is one of the hardest places in the world to follow Jesus. Believers are closely monitored, imprisoned, and stigmatized. Pray that attitudes will change and that courageous Christians can speak about why they continue to stand, even in the face of so much risk.
  • Despite the hardships, Eritrean Christians like Pastor Gideon remain joyful: “Even when we are in suffering, we rejoice. When people see that, they accept Jesus.” Praise God for their remarkable strength and witness.

The Gospel Around the World
in the Last Days!

Jesus said , “For the Good News must first be preached to all nations (peoples).” (Mark 13:10)

Obviously, there is bad news all over the world. Nevertheless, there is also great news — signs of hope — that born-again Christians are doing what Jesus told us to do in the Great Commission and before He left us.

  • Iran: Please pray for “H”, an Iranian believer who has been praying for his family for the past 18 years since he came to faith. Praise God that almost 30 of his extended family have trusted in Christ. “H” now pastors around 150 believers in a network of house churches spread across 4 cities. 
  • Cuba – Viva: Viva’s partner in Havana is one of Viva’s smaller networks worldwide, but its heart for children in vulnerable situations is large and beating strongly! Pray for Viva’s Learning Spaces programme, which is now running in four provinces of the country, with more than 60 children attending.  Not only is Internet access limited and expensive, but technology is also hard to come by, making the ‘easier’ alternative of online programming harder for volunteers and families. Pray for an emerging network in Santa Clara, and for more churches to join as members so that children would be protected from harm in that city.
  • Mongolia: Please pray for a newly married couple who met through an outreach programme in Ulaanbatar. They have expressed a desire to start a ministry in another district and plant a church there. Please pray for wisdom and guidance as this vision unfolds in the will of God.
  • India: 407 Families Reached, 296 Scriptures & Literature Distributed, 26 Received Christ, 17 People Baptised, 3 Prayer Groups Formed, 2 Churches Planted. These are the figures from a report of just one evangelist working in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. Praise the Lord! (See what one dedicated person can do!)
  • India: Praise God for BMS World Mission worker Ben Francis, who is bringing revitalisation to many churches in India and around the world through disciple-making movements. Pray for the training of 10,000 church planters who will plant 10,000 house churches. Give thanks, too, that the women working with BMS’ partner Biglife are bold and brilliant in sharing the gospel. Pray for BMS-supported worker Gill Francis as she trains more women as disciple-makers.
  • Bhutan: AsiaLink partners in Bhutan request prayer for a young boy suffering many health problems. His parents approached the church leaders, requesting prayer and the boy made some improvement. Praise God, the father became a Christian and is now involved in the church.
  • U.S.: Jesus Movement Celebrates ‘Biggest Water Baptism’ in U.S. History
    More than 4,000 people were baptized in a single ceremony in southern California last Sunday to mark the 50th anniversary of the Jesus Movement.
  • Missionaries report Muslims encountering Jesus in dreams ‘in levels not seen in 1,400 years. We were praying for this all during Ramada! Prayer works and it doesn’t cost us anything but a little time.

Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing.

If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking. But when you ask him, be sure that your faith is in God alone. Do not waver, for a person with divided loyalty is as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is blown and tossed by the wind. Such people should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. Their loyalty is divided between God and the world, and they are unstable in everything they do.

James 1:2-8 NLT

Help Spread the Good News of Jesus Christ all over the World!

We Are Living in the Last Days!

Yes, things do look hopeless and grim down here on earth. What can we do? We can pray and draw closer to Jesus through His Word, His Salvation and His Hope…

Jesus, you are the unbreakable, unshakeable, immovable foundation that stands the test of time and keeps us standing strong in the face of panic-inducing winds and terrifying storms. Help us to remember that we belong in the Kingdom of Heaven — that this evil earth is not our home. Thank you for being our confident hope!

Lord, please come soon to fulfill your salvation, and grant us patience as I wait to see it. Amen.

Are YOU Secure in YOUR Salvation
Through Jesus Christ?

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…

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