If you want to know where we are at in terms of Bible prophesy in 2016, then get a copy of my ebook on Amazon. I have reproduced a section from Chapter 8 – Discerning the Times for you to judge the content.
Chapter 8 – Discerning the Times
Jesus said, at His second coming it will be as in the days of Noah. The world will turn its back on God and His morality. If you need convincing that we are in the “last days”, the following posts from my website outline the extent of the moral and economic decline which is evident, particularly in the so called western nations.
I have already shown that the denominational church, which no longer believes God’s Word is inerrant, is in decline. It’s acceptance of evolution, abortion and now gay marriage, means Christians who hold to the truth of God’s Word, are being marginalized and coming under increased persecution as governments legislate to legalize gay marriage.
The acceptance of a history for the Universe in billions of years instead of thousands of years has convinced the world an imminent return of Jesus Christ is nonsense. Many Christians no longer have the zeal to evangelize, as did those like John Wesley, who believed the return of Jesus Christ was likely to occur at any moment.
A number of posts on my website, included in this chapter, show the rapid rise of Islam and terrorism which now adversely impacts most nations. Its possible relationship to ‘Revelation’ end time prophesies concerning the antichrist is explored.
As already mentioned, Israel’s (surrounded by hostile Muslim nations) very existence is proof God exists and the Bible is God’s Word.
Demonic activity is on the increase; it appears to be part of a climactic battle being waged over the future of mankind. Belief in extraterrestrial life (demonic deception) has effectively become a new religion for many. The young are bombarded with aliens in video games, films and other forms of entertainment. As Gary Bates reveals in his book Alien Intrusion popular polls have suggested that up to 20 million Americans have seen an UFO and 4 million claim to have been abducted by aliens. Such ideas have become mainstream and children in particular are very susceptible and are openly targeted.
The Star Wars movies, created by George Lucas have prepared young people for Satan’s latest ploy. He stated, “I put the Force into the movie in order to awaken a certain kind of spirituality in young people… I think there is a God… What that God is or what we know about God, I’m not sure”. What spirituality has it brought forth? Britain’s Daily Telegraph reported in December, 2015 that the latest Star Wars movie “The Force Awakens” has led to a spike in people joining a sci-fi based religion known as Jedism. They reported that over 1,000 people a day were signing up, even before the movie’s release that month. Amazingly, this religion has gained serious traction. As far back as 2012, a UK census found that Jedism is the most popular faith in the ‘Other Religions’ category on the census. While adherents acknowledge that their religion is based on fiction, they claim to seriously follow the man made spiritual and moral teachings practiced by the characters in the movies. Moreover, they have asked the UK government for official government recognition as a religion.
In the last days, the Bible tells us in Romans 1:21-25, that although they knew God (or else why would they need to start their own religion to fill such voids in their lives) they did not acknowledge Him. It is their futile attempt to fill the God shaped void in the human heart.
“The natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned.” 1 Corinthians 2:14
Many seemingly credible scientists now believe that life on earth originated from outer space. This is no longer just science fiction – such an idea has been promoted by well-known scientists including Richard Dawkins, Paul Davies, and even DNA co-discoverer, Francis Crick. He suggested that our DNA may contain revelation from our alien creators. Is it any wonder that people, prompted by these same themes promoted in science fiction, would then look to stars for inspiration? They are unwilling to accept the truth that the God of the Bible is responsible for life’s design.
Most evangelical Christians would now agree that the desperate godless scenario now being played out in the world is prophesied in Scripture as “last days”. The world has turned its back on God and His morality. We should not be surprised, concerning the time of His return to earth, Jesus told His disciples “For as were the days of Noah, and Sodom & Gomorrah, so will be the coming of the Son of Man …” Matthew 24:38 and Luke 17:28
In the days of Noah, the world was so corrupt and evil, God sent a worldwide flood to destroy all mankind save Noah and his family (8 people). With Sodom & Gomorrah, all but Lot and his family (wife looked back and died) were destroyed. Sadly, the world does not believe these events ever happened (Wikipedia – Flood Myth).
God judged the world and nations in the past and He is judging nations today. What is He doing in your nation and what is He calling you to do in these perilous times? It is an exciting time to be a Christian, God is calling His children to battle. Are you listening to the Holy Spirit? Are you in the right place, the right church? Do you know what He is calling you to do?
