The Signs of Christ's return and judgement upon the earth are recorded in Matthew

24. Even his own disciples wanted to know about the last days, as well as Daniel.
(The great prince and Angel of Israel Micheal, said this to Daniel; there shall be
a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same
time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be
found written in the book. But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the
book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall
be increased. Daniel was not allowed to know the exact events of the end.) We're
living in "The Information Age" making this sign seem even more clear. It is said
that 80% percent of the world's total knowledge has been brought forth in the last
decade. Many have said that over 90% of all the scientists and inventors that were
ever born are alive today. This proves that the increase in knowledge has taken
place in our generation proving that we are living in the end times. Matthew 24:3
The disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things
be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? The
very first words he said to them was that some would try to deceive, even the very
Elect of God. Matthew 24:4-5 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that
no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall
deceive many. Then he spoke of the other signs that would occur then. Matthew 24:6
And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for
all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. World War 1 and 2.
Korean War. Cold War. Colonial Wars. African Wars. Asian Wars. Political coups.
Rebellions. Matthew 24:7-8 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom
against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in
divers places. Today there are many pestilences. (A usually fatal epidemic
disease, especially the bubonic plague.) The AIDS virus, Herpes, Legionnaires
disease, typhoid, hepatitis, anthrax, ect. Africa has famines in many parts.
Earthquakes continue to increase in frequency and intensity, just as the Bible
predicts for the last days before the return of Christ. History shows that the
number of killer quakes remained fairly constant until the 1950's, averaging
between two to four per decade. In the 1950s, there were nine. In the 1960s, there
were 13. In the 1970s, there were 51. In the 1980s, there were 86. From 1990
through 1996, there have been more than 150. Matthew 24:8 All these are the
beginning of sorrows. The events are similar to women giving birth or birthing
pains. John 16:21 A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is
come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the
anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world. Christ is coming reclaim what
is his from Satan. The Devil will never give up without a fight. He knows his days
are numbered and will be allowed to perform deeds, signs, and wonders. Mark 13:8
For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall
be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these
are the beginnings of sorrows. Here Mark repeats the words of Matthew. We are on
the horizon viewing the beginning of the end. The end of the world is not yet.
There will be a great falling away before then. I believe that will happen because
so many are counting on being delivered from any and all affliction. Job, Daniel,
and Christ were all tested. All but one of the Apostles died as a Martyr. Satan
attacks our faith on many fronts. Being tempted isn't a sin but yielding to the
temptation is. 1 Corinthians 10:13 assures us that there is no temptation that we
could ever face that will be more than we can handle. God will always give a way
of escape when we’re in a tempting situation. In order to be justified one must
tried and often so by fire. Christ will return one day but we are to occupy until
that day. Everyone wants avoid pain but we must say like our master, not my will,
but thine be done Lord God. Matthew 24:9-10 Then shall they deliver you up to be
afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's
sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall
hate one another. Here again we are hated because of the name of the Lord Jesus.
He is Lord of all in Acts 10:36. We cast out demons, heal, and are baptized in
that all powerful name. See Matthew 28:18, Acts 4:12, and Mark 16:16-20. Everyone
is told to do all in the name of Jesus, in Colossians 3:17. We read again in
Matthew 24:11: And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. This
was foretold by Amos 8:11-13. Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I
will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but
of hearing the words of the LORD: And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from
the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the
LORD, and shall not find it. In that day shall the fair virgins and young men
faint for thirst. Now and today you are hearing the true Gospel of Christ, the
Apostles and Paul's. The famine is ended. The truth is freely preached without
cost to anyone. Revelations 22:17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let
him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will,
let him take the water of life freely. Christ is the groom and we his church or
body of believers, are his bride. We must take the groom's family name to be his,
Ephesians 3:15. We must be without spot, wrinkle, blemish, or any such thing. If
we do not take upon us the name of Christ Jesus for covering, we will be cast out.
Matthew 22:8-14 Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they
which were bidden were not worthy. Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many
as ye shall find, bid to the marriage. So those servants went out into the
highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and
the wedding was furnished with guests. And when the king came in to see the
guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment: And he saith unto
him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was
speechless. Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take
him away, and cast him into outer darkness, there shall be weeping and gnashing of
teeth. For many are called, but few are chosen. Matthew 24:12 And because iniquity
shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. Today nobody has faith in the
churches because of scandals. Nor in politics because of corruption. Nor of other
people because of scams. I say this to all. Trust in God alone. Trust not in me,
but Christ that lives in me. Also in the others who love him truthfully. Whosoever
trusts in the name of the Lord Jesus will be saved and safe. Matthew 24:13-14 But
he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. And this gospel of the
kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and
then shall the end come. The true Gospel will be preached to all the world to save
it, and then the end will come. And this will be done mainly by the Jewish
144,000, the two witnesses, and the few but faithful believers. No man has all the
answers yet Christ Jesus does. Now, Jesus reiterates his words to clarify his
message. So let us read them in these passages of Matthew 24:15-51. 15When ye
therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the
prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let
them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: Let him which is on the housetop
not come down to take any thing out of his house: Neither let him which is in the
field return back to take his clothes. And woe unto them that are with child, and
to them that give suck in those days! But pray ye that your flight be not in the
winter, neither on the sabbath day: For then shall be great tribulation, such as
was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And
except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the
elects sake those days shall be shortened. Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo,
here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and
false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were
possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before.
Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth:
behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. For as the lightning cometh
out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the
Son of man be. For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered
together. Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be
darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from
heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the
sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth
mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power
and great glory. And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and
they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven
to the other. Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender,
and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye
shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. Verily I say
unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. But of that
day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. But
as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in
the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and
giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, And knew not
until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son
of man be.Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other
left. Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the
other left. Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. But
know this, that if the Goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief
would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be
broken up. Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son
of man cometh. Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made
ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season? Blessed is that
servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. Verily I say unto you,
That he shall make him ruler over all his goods. But and if that evil servant
shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; And shall begin to smite his
fellow servants, and to eat and drink with the drunken; The lord of that servant
shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not
aware of, And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the
hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Well said. Let us read
what is recorded by Paul to Timothy. In 1 Timothy 4:1-5 Now the Spirit speaketh
expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed
to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having
their conscience seared with a hot iron; Forbidding to marry, and commanding to
abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of
them which believe and know the truth. For every creature of God is good, and
nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving: For it is sanctified
by the word of God and prayer. This speaks of the Priest's who cannot marry. There
were many Popes who had children out of wedlock during the ages. This is a
recorded historical fact. During certain events, (such as Lent) Catholics abstain
from meats but eat fish or other foods instead. These are all man made doctrines
much like the trinity. 2 Timothy 3:1-5 This know also, that in the last days
perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous,
boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without
natural affection, truce breakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers
of those that are good, Traitors, heady, high minded, lovers of pleasures more
than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof:
from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead
captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning,
and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. Paul had to have the scales
removed from his eyes to see the truth. Acts 9:17-18 Ananias went his way, and
entered into the house; and putting his hands on him said, Brother Saul, the Lord,
even Jesus, that appeared unto thee in the way as thou camest, hath sent me, that
thou mightest receive thy sight, and be filled with the Holy Ghost. And
immediately there fell from his eyes as it had been scales: and he received sight
forthwith, and arose, and was baptized. Acts 22:16 And now why tarriest thou?
arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord.
It must be by Divine revelation. Galatians 1:11-12 But I certify you, brethren,
that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man. For neither did I
receive it from man, nor was I taught it, but it came to me through revelation of
Jesus Christ. Ephesians 3:3-5 How that by revelation he made known unto me the
mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words, Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand
my knowledge in the mystery of Christ) Which in other ages was not made known unto
the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the
Spirit. Amos 3:7 Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret
unto his servants the prophets. For certain, as the time of his return approaches,
God will reveal more to his servants. Matthew 11:27 All things are delivered to me
of my Father: and no man knows the Son, but the Father; neither knows any man the
Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him. Jesus said the
comforter would lead, guide, and teach us all truth. We are imparted this upon
belief and baptism. Read Mark 16:16, Romans 6:4, Colossians 2:12. But as it is
written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of
man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath
revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the
deep things of God. 1 Corinthians 2:10-11. The wise man's eyes are in his head;
but the fool walketh in darkness: and I myself perceived also that one event
happeneth to them all. Ecclesiastes 2:14. If you do not have the spirit of God it
is because you have followed folly instead of truth. Those who have been baptized
into the trinity know that they lack the Holy One of Israel in them. Sure, you can
receive the Gift of the Holy Ghost with other tongues evidenced, but that alone
will never save you. Belief and obedience does. The example of this is Naaman.
This is found in 2 Kings 5:1-15. Jesus himself never spoke in tongues. He was
baptized by John in the Jordan River. This is reported in Matthew 3:12-17 and Mark
1:9-11. The upper room experience is still valid today. Hebrews 13:8: Jesus Christ
the same yesterday, today, and forever. Romans 11:29: For the gifts and calling of
God are without repentance. The victory is by our active faith. And through his
grace. Nobody can do any work to obtain salvation apart from acting upon their
faith. This is the truth of Ephesians 2:8-10. For by grace are ye saved through
faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any
man should boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good
works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. James 2:26: For
as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also. God
bless all in the name of Jesus.
