Two major stories dominated global news this week: the tragic fire in Maui, Hawaii and the continuing military coup in Niger. How are both of these events tied to Bible Prophecy? As you will see, the situation in Niger falls under wars and rumors of wars, as well as economic chaos. The Maui fire falls under seismic events, which are increasing in frequency and intensity.
Jesus told us…
7 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. 8 Nation will go to war against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be earthquakes (seismic events) in many parts of the world, as well as famines. But this is only the first of the birth pains, with more to come.Mark 13:7-8 NLT
With that in mind, let’s look at this week’s wrap up of the increasing signs of Bible Prophecy.

9 “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

- Sadly, some Lao Christians have renounced their faith due to pressure from local authorities and the community. Pray they will continue to worship God in their hearts even when they cannot publicly proclaim their faith.

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.
- American Nurse and her daughter were released ‘Unharmed’ following Abduction in Haiti.
- Chile – Church Mission Society: Local partner Christian Donoso and his wife Faby lead a church plant in Concepción, Chile. Pray for them and the team as they continue to lead the church in reaching out to those around them, specifically through gathering people for meals. Pray for God to prompt members of the church to invite specific people both to events and into their homes.
- Pakistan (AsiaLink): Give thanks for the vision behind a new outreach project that our partners have developed in Pakistan. After some setbacks, a building has been secured to host English language classes and computer skills training. Please pray that those who attend will be open to gospel conversations.
- Nepal: Please pray for AsiaLink’s partner in Nepal who hosts a Zoom bible class each week for those who are eager to grow in their faith. Pray that many in the group will catch the vision for outreach and evangelism and join in the great task of sharing the gospel among the people of Nepal.
- Vietnam: Pray for local churches in remote areas of Vietnam. Pray that the fellowship in these congregations will nurture a powerful community of disciples who boldly share God’s Word and live out the gospel.
- Thailand – BMS World Mission: Praise God that BMS’ partnership with the Thailand Karen Baptist Convention (TKBC) has enabled the training and sending of women evangelists to plant churches. Pray God’s wisdom for BMS workers Paul and Sarah Brown as they work with TKBC.
- Bangladesh: Today we are praying for Nipon, a gospel worker serving in the Barisal district in southern Bangladesh. He received a motorbike through AsiaLink’s On-Your-Bike scheme and puts it to good use as he travels many miles sharing the gospel and encouraging believers in their faith.
- Lebanon: Praise God for the several Christian radio and TV outlets in Lebanon that are able to broadcast the Word of God daily to the wider Arab world. Pray that the message of salvation will reach those who do not yet know the love of Jesus.
- India – Al Massira: Please pray for India and for the follow up to the Al Massira (AM) trainings held in two cities in February. Please pray for a Prayer Coordinator from within-country to inspire and disseminate prayer requests and for a local team to be established. Pray for a like-minded Sister in the UK, recently connected to AM who is reaching out to BHB (Believers from a Hindu Background). May AM be used widely to help support God’s people in His work in reaching all nations with the Gospel.

“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
35 Heaven and earth will disappear, but my words will never disappear.Matthew 24:35 NLT
We Are Living in the Last Days!
A huge tsunami of brainwashing, deception, confusion, fear, and anxiety, accompanied by violence and terror, is approaching our world.
I believe that our world is up for a combination, unprecedented in scope, of natural disasters and the unleashing of deadly viruses that will lead to a very firm and violent power-grab by the globalist elite.
These are merely the birth pangs but not the end itself.
Power, love, and a sound mind are more than ever required!
Jesus said: “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
Only by being in the Word and walking with the Lord will you be able to guard your heart and soul from all that will be around us.
“You will keep him in perfect peace,Amir Tsarfati
Whose mind is stayed on You,
Because he trusts in You.” Isaiah 26:3
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…
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.
