How do we know this is the time for God’s wrath and the rapture of the church? Jesus said you will know when He is coming because of the various signs He spoke about in the book of Matthew. He said these signs will be given to tell all those who are watching that He is at the door! He compared these signs to a woman in labor getting ready to deliver a child. That means the signs will be spread out at first, but will become stronger and more frequent as the tribulation hour nears. In fact the very signs that He spoke about appear to be happening at this very moment, and may reach their peak just in time for Passover!
What are the specific signs Jesus spoke about and what are we to look for? Here is what He said in Matthew 24:4-8. ” Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name claiming, I am the Christ, and will deceive many. You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginnings of birth pains.”
This Bible passage above spoken by Jesus seems to be what is happening at this very moment around the world. Earthquakes are becoming stronger and more frequent. The war in Syria is becoming a world wide war, bringing many nations into the battle. There has even been threats of nuclear strikes by nations such as North Korea and Russia. Due to droughts, economic collapse and war, many areas of the world are experiencing unprecedented food shortages. And in various parts of the world, occult leaders are rising up to claim they are the Messiah who has come to save the world.
But Jesus did say that these are only the beginnings of birth pains. These are the signs to look for, so that we would know that the tribulation hour is near or at hand. He said when you begin to see these things look up for your redemption draweth nigh, which is the rapture of the church. In the next part of Matthew 24 verses 9-14, Jesus explains what happens when the tribulation hour actually begins, which will immediately follow the rapture of the church!
“Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. At that time, many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate one another, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase in wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but he who stands firm unto the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come!”
But the good news is that those who are followers of Jesus Christ, those who have turned from their sins and asked Him to be their Lord and Savior are not subject to this wrath. We will be taken out, just before the tribulation hour begins as Jesus explains in Revelation 3:10
“Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come upon the whole world to test those who live on the earth”
So based on what was said by Jesus it is apparent that all the things that He said would happen before the rapture, are happening right now! This could only mean one thing, that the rapture of the church and hour of tribulation will happen at any moment! But there is one more exclusive sign to look for that will tell us that the rapture and tribulation are truly at hand. This one was spoken by Apostle Paul and God the father Himself, through His prophets from long ago, telling of an event that is soon to come!” This is the event of all events!
1 Thessalonians 5:2-4; “For you yourselves know full well that the day of the Lord will come just like a thief in the night. While they are saying “Peace and Safety!” Then destruction will come upon them suddenly like labor pains, upon a woman with child and they will not escape, But you brethren are not in darkness that the day would over take you like a thief.
Joel 3:2; “I will gather all nations and bring them down to the valley of Jehoshaphat. Then I will enter into judgment with then there on behalf of my people and my inheritance Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, because they have divided my land.”
This specific event foretells God’s judgment coming down upon the entire world because they have divided His land Israel. This is the 7 year peace treaty spoken of by Daniel the prophet in the book of Daniel chapter 9. He said that a world leader will come forward and make a covenant with Israel for 7 years that will divide the land. This world leader is the Antichrist! He comes in peaceably and persuades Israel to give up a part of their land in which God said to never do! God made this promise to Israel in the book of Amos 9:14-15.
“And I will bring my people back from exile. They will rebuild the ruined cities and live in them. They will plant vineyards and drink their wine, they will make gardens and eat fruit. I will plant Israel in their own land, never again to be uprooted in the land that I have given them, “says the Lord your God.
So as you can see the promise that God had made to Israel is very important to Him and if anyone tries to divide the land and take some of it as their own, the wrath of God will be upon them. This is the very thing that will ultimately anger God and cause the tribulation hour to begin. But what does this particular event have to do with Passover and the rapture of the church?
Well on April 22nd, 2016, the Palestinian leader and the leader of France, both have proposal for a two state solution that they will present to the United Nations. They are hoping to pass one of the two resolutions through the UN Security Council so it can go up for a General Vote to be voted on by all the member nations from around the world. Both of these plans are to divide the land of Israel. If the 5 nations with veto power pass this vote, and the world passes it into law, God will do just what He said He will do. Sudden destruction shall then come down upon the entire world for voting on this agreement to divide the land and allowing it to pass into law. This is when the tribulation hour will begin. The 5 nations with Veto power in the UNSC are the US, Russia, China, UK, and France. Based on repeated voting patterns, China and Russia would veto, France and UK would be for it and the US becomes the swing vote, putting the power right into the hands of Barack Obama! The reason the vote for a two state solution did not go through in the past is because the US had always vetoed it. It is because the Antichrist is after one thing and one thing only, he wants the temple to set himself up as God so the whole world can worship him and so he can say that he is God.
Mark 13:14-20; “But when you see the ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION standing where it should not be (let the reader understand), then those who are in Judea must flee to the mountains. “The one who is on the housetop must not go down, or go in to get anything out of his house; and the one who is in the field must not turn back to get his coat. But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days! But pray that it may not happen in the winter. For those days will be a time of tribulation such as has not occurred since the beginning of the creation which God created until now, and never will. Unless the Lord had shortened those days, no life would have been saved; but for the sake of the elect, whom He chose, He shortened the days.”
So his ultimate goal is to befriend the Jews as the Bible says in Revelation chapter 6 with the opening of the first seal. The rider on the white horse. He comes in peaceably with a 7 years peace plan, an agreement to divide the land. Recently a reporter had asked the White House spokesman if Obama planned to veto these UN resolutions once again when presented next Friday! The spokesman said Obama knows that something must be done about this two state solution that the situation is urgent, meaning he doesn’t plan on vetoing this at all. The spokesman went on to say its only a matter of which plan to go with, and as we know both proposals involve dividing the land.
Based on all this evidence presented, there is a very good chance that the rapture of the church and the hour of tribulation could begin on Passover, 2016 as the world begins to vote on the division of God’s land. The signs are all happening now! Earthquakes are increasing and becoming larger by the day! Are these God’s last warnings to the world before the true Chaos begins?
This may be your very last moments and hours to decide before Jesus comes and takes His faithful people home to save them from all that is about to come! If you don’t know Jesus as your Lord and Savior, ask Him into your heart today! Ask Him to be the Lord and Savior of your life, to forgive you of your sins and to turn away from those sins! Then you too shall be saved! Please do it now before its too late! Jesus is coming soon! May God be with you in these last days!
