World Watch Prophetic, Last Days News Just Like Jesus Said

World Watch 8.5.23: Bible Prophecy News in the Last Days Just Like Jesus Said

You are probably thinking to yourself, “What in the world is going on?” We can’t help but notice that there are just too many weird things going on at the same time — in rapid succession — throughout the world. Moreover, it’s all affecting our lifestyles, livelihoods, families, careers, and ultimately, our peace of mind. Friend, these “unusual and sudden events”, as the image below says are signs of the last days — it’s all laid out in Bible Prophecy. Only a fool would say different. As the image also says, “Only those who have the revelation of the Holy Spirit will discern the seasons.”

Jesus told us…

We are entering a time period of unusual and sudden events.

When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own but will tell you what he has heard. He will tell you about the future.

John 16:13 NLT

Having said that, understand that Bible Prophecy is not meant to scare you, but to prepare you and to give you a sense of urgency.

With that in mind, let’s look at this week’s wrap up of the increasing signs of Bible Prophecy.

Last Days Bible Prophecy
Coming True Right Now!

Wars, Threats of Wars, People Group vs
People Group

Russia / Ukraine / Europe

  • After setting up a production line in Russia, Iran is about to sign a joint production agreement and set up an assembly plant for the Shahad 136 suicide drone on Belarusian soil.
  • An oil depot was destroyed by the Russians in Izmail, Ukraine. This is only 15km from the Romanian border on the Danube River.
  • The Russians continue to destroy Ukrainian grain stores. (See the famine section.)
  • Ready for Battle: Following the Wagner Group presence in Belarus and the growing danger posed by them to the neighboring countries, the armies of Poland, Lithuania, and Latvia moved forces to the border with Belarus.
  • Breaking: There are reports of a Russian ballistic missile launched from Belarus towards Ukraine today.

Elsewhere Around the World…

  • Iranian weapons (given to Venezuela) threaten the shipping lanes in the Caribbean that connect the Panama Canal to the USA and Europe.
  • Niger…
    • “Death to Macron”, the French embassy is looted and set on fire in Islamist Niger. France is being kicked out of Africa. Russia is definitely involved and the Wagner Group is there!
    • France 24 channel: The deputy leader of the junta in Niger is in Mali to request a “rapid deployment of Wagner forces in the country” to help the coup regime.
Africa’s military coups belt: 5,600 km of countries under military rule.

The Pacific

  • Everyone is preparing for war in the Pacific: See image below section…
    • China war games amphibious assault on Taiwan.
    • Taiwan war games of the Chinese invasion.
    • U.S. + Allies host “Olympics of war games”.
    • China + Russia holding the largest joint military exercises.
    • North Korea fires ballistic missiles.

Jesus warned us, “Nation will go to war against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.” The Greek word for “nation” is “ethnos” from which we get our words “ethnic” and “ethnicity”. It’s also translated as “people group” against “people group”.

This is found in His Olivet Discourse in Matthew 24, Luke 21, and Mark 13. Additionally, He said, “But all this is only the first of the birth pains, with more to come.”

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.

Deadly, Catastrophic, Seismic Weather Events

  • Slovenia: “A month of rainfall in 24 hours!”
  • China: Beijing was hit by 2 typhoons in 2 weeks and is flooded. Over 850,000 people told to move in hours from Hebei because of flooding in nearby Beijing. They are flooding a suburb of Beijing to relieve the floodwaters in the larger city. “Some houses are too damaged to be habitable.” Home owners can get only 70% of their home’s value. They got 29.3″ of rain in 36 hours.
  • Typhoon Khanun hit Japan islands of Okinawa with wind gusts up to 100 mph.
  • India: 649+ mm (25+”) of rain in 24 hours.

Those are just some of the phrases describing the crazy, record-breaking weather events in the past week in some locations. Check out these videos…


More Ukrainian grain destroyed: This week, Russian drones attacked grain warehouses and elevators in Ukraine and destroyed an estimated 40,000 tons of grain. According to Ukrainian deputy prime minister, the grain was destined for Africa, China, and Israel.
Russia has not yet returned to the grain treaty it once upheld, saying that it refuses to do so until certain sanctions against Russia are lifted. (Foreshadows)

Recovering from the Turkey/Syria Earthquakes

Syria: Pray for the families who lost their homes in the earthquake that hit the region in February. Give thanks that, through Open Doors local partners, the first houses have been restored. Many families are still benefiting from rent-support. Pray for stamina for our local church partners and that their support will give people hope and strength to stay in Syria.

The Coup in Niger & its Economic Impact

Niger announced the cessation of uranium exports to France.

During the military coup in Niger last week, its Franco-Western president was ousted. The new leader, close to Russia, announced the cessation of uranium exports to France.

Niger is considered the fourth largest exporter of uranium in the world and is responsible for approximately 25% of the supply of uranium to the nuclear power plants in the European Union. It is responsible for 8% of the world’s uranium output.

French companies own 63% of the uranium mines in Niger. The cessation of exports is definitely a serious problem for the French. In addition, it was reported that Burkina Faso also announced the cessation of uranium exports to France and the US. The battle in Africa between Russia and the West is stepping up.

Russia reopened its embassy in Burkina Faso.

Mali, Burkina Faso, and Guinea (in red), are the countries supporting the military coup in Niger (orange). The countries in green are members of the West African Economic Community (ECOWAS), which have economic ties to Western countries like the EU and the US. (Amir Tsarfati)

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.

10 “And many will turn away from me and betray and hate each other. 11 And many false prophets will appear and will deceive many people. 12 Sin will be rampant everywhere, and the love of many will grow cold. 13 But the one who endures to the end will be saved. 14 And the Good News about the Kingdom will be preached throughout the whole world, so that all nations will hear it; and then the end will come.

Matthew 24:8-13 NLT

Increased Christian Persecution

Matthew 10:16 NLT

Extreme Beginnings – VOM

On a beautiful autumn day in 1967, the couple sat before their old typewriter on the tiny kitchen table in their new home–the United States. It wasn’t that long ago that Pastor Richard Wurmbrand had sat in a cold, dark Romanian prison cell for his work in the underground church. His wife, Sabina, had been sentenced to forced labor in a prison camp.

The couple now pondered the message that God had given them. They wanted to share the trials and triumphs facing persecuted Christians in Communist countries worldwide. The couple had been threatened by the Romanian secret police not to speak against Communism, but the intimidation could not stop them. They were compelled to raise the voice of Christ’s suffering body–a voice that had been overlooked and forgotten by many in the free world.

The words flowed easily onto the pages, and before long, they had their first edition of the Voice of the Martyrs newsletter. They began with only one hundred dollars and a few hundred names and addresses from Christians who were interested in how they could help.

The vision that was birthed in a solitary prison cell has now grown into a worldwide organization dedicated to serving the persecuted church. Millions of subsequent The Voice of the Martyrs newsletters have been distributed around the globe in more than a dozen languages.

Start somewhere. That’s where good ideas in God’s service always begin–somewhere. Serving Christ means it doesn’t matter where you start or when or how–as long as you start.

Many keep delaying their dreams instead of beginning somewhere. We tell ourselves we will serve Christ someday: when the kids are grown up and out of the house; when we finally get the bills paid off and are able to tithe. Each time we say that, we will start serving Christ after we finish something else, we have missed the point of our calling.

What is God calling you to do? Not when is he calling you to do it, what is it he wants done? What are you doing now to begin fulfilling his call?

We must pray and speak out against persecution.

The Gospel Around the World
in the Last Days!

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.

  • Syria: Pray for the expansion of our team of local partners of Open Doors UK in Syria. Give thanks for successful recruits and pray for wisdom and unity in the team as they seek to build God’s kingdom in Syria.
  • Iraq: Open Doors partners ran a Bible competition in Iraq to help young people understand the Bible more and apply it to their lives. “I got to know the characters from the Bible better,” says Wiam, who took part. “I can apply the lessons in real life. I learned a lot that I can teach to others and give them hope.” Pray that Wiam can pass on what he has learned to others.
  • AsiaLink HistoryMakers: Today we are praying for the second team of young adults as they travel to Southeast Asia. Please pray that they will be able to carry many bibles into restricted lands and bless the church there. Ask God to protect and guide each member of the team as they serve.

Bangladesh: Woman Finds Freedom After Traumatic Attack

When Raissa was a teen, she was kidnapped and raped by a group of Muslim men who wanted to punish her father, a Christian pastor. For years, Raissa felt trapped in her home, unable to leave without being taunted, threatened and retraumatized by her attackers, who had faced no consequences.

Raissa asked for help relocating to a larger city where she could be free of her attackers and pursue education and a career. Front-line workers helped her secure an apartment and begin her studies. They also connected her to a ministry that helps women who have been trafficked. She works part-time on their administrative staff while receiving therapy and support to aid her own healing.

Raissa’s family is joyful that she is finally experiencing freedom. Through VOM, Raissa’s family was also able to drill a well and build a fence around their home.

“How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of the messenger who brings good news, the good news of peace and salvation, the news that the God of Israel reigns!”

‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭52‬:‭7‬ ‭NLT‬‬

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

We Are Living in the Last Days!

Undoubtedly, the God of Israel still reigns! He is the Sovereign God and we MUST always remember that! Pray every day, “Your Kingdom come, Your Will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.”

Moreover, we should live with the courage and boldness like the first true believers. In other words, we must STUDY the Bible daily, OBEY what it says, PRAY together with other true born-again believers, and finally, in obeying, we must preach the Word of God with boldness.

How? Through the Power of the Holy Spirit!

Do You Have the Holy Spirit
in YOUR Heart?

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…


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 born-again believers are citizens of the Kingdom of Heaven — and 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, strength, courage and boldness as we wait to see it. Amen.
