Billions of locusts are eating everything in sight in East Africa right now, and every single day many more farms are being completely wiped out. Unfortunately, authorities are telling us that what we have seen so far is just the tip of the iceberg. In fact, if extreme measures are not implemented immediately, authorities are claiming that this locust plague could literally get “500 times” worse in a few months. But it is difficult to imagine conditions getting any worse than they are at this moment. Ravenous locust swarms that are “the size of cities” are consuming crops at a staggering pace, and this could potentially cause famine on the African continent that is unlike anything we have ever seen before.
It can be difficult to imagine a plague of “billions” of locusts. After all, there are only about 7 billion people living on the entire planet.
But this is actually happening. Right now “billions of locusts” are absolutely devastating East Africa. Jesus spoke of famines and pestilences (corona virus) in the last days before His return. These along with all of the other Middle East “end times” events should alert the church to the urgency of the hour and the coming escalating tribulation.
The Bible tells us that in the “last days” before Jesus returns to rule and reign from Jerusalem, Israel will enter into a peace plan that ushers in a time of false security. This prophecy is in Daniel, the amazing 70 Weeks prophecy, which accurately predicted Jesus first coming so we need to take note of what it says about the last seven years (70th week) prior to His second coming.
“Then he (Antichrist) shall confirm a covenant with many (Israel) for one week (70th week = last 7 years); but in the middle of the week, he shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering (in the rebuilt temple). And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate, even until the consummation (wrath of God), which is determined, is poured out on the desolate.”Daniel 9:27
When the disciples asked Jesus ” “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?” Matthew 24:3
“Jesus told them “Therefore when you see the abomination of desolation (Antichrist), spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (whoever reads, let him understand),then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains… for there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, mo, nor ever shall be. And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened (Rapture of the saints).”Matthew 24:21-22
Israel will enter a pact with the Antichrist (a Covenant with Death). They will trust Antichrist rather than the Most High.
Is President Donald Trump’s soon to be released Peace Pact which has been labelled “Deal of the Century” the one referred in Daniel.
Certainly not, Trump is not the Antichrist and only a Peace Pact put together by a Muslim leader will be accepted by its hostile Muslim neighbours. The long awaited Muslim Mahdi, whose appearance is imminent according to both Shia and Sunni leaders, could he be the Antichrist of Scripture? I think so, as do many end times scholars. Check out Joel Richardson’s best selling book The Islamic Antichrist.
The Palestinians have boycotted the Trump administration for two years and announced they will reject the much-trumpeted deal, despite their apparent lack of knowledge regarding its contents.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu arrived in Washington Sunday night vowing to “make history” at a planned meeting with Trump for the unveiling of the deal.
The ISIS terror group disseminated an audio message Monday claiming it would attack Israel on the eve of the White House’s release of their Mideast peace plan.
The ISIS audio comes at a time when the terror group has suffered major defeats over the past year including the assassination of its leader and founder, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, in a U.S. attack in northwestern Syria.
Jesus said, in the last days before His return: “and there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.” Matthew 24:7b
Wuhan, the central China city at the heart of the coronavirus outbreak, has been put in quarantine, starting 1pm (AEDT) on Thursday, January 2020.
The deadly new strain of coronavirus is mutating into a more virulent disease that can be transmitted through airborne droplets from coughing or sneezing, Chinese scientists warned, as the death toll nearly doubled to nine in just 24 hours and the number of confirmed cases across the country climbed to 440.
It has since spread to South Korea, Japan and Thailand, with the US, Macau and Taiwan also reporting their first confirmed cases on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Four cases of the deadly coronavirus have been confirmed in Australia, as authorities scramble to contact passengers who shared flights from China with the patients. Three men tested positive to the respiratory condition in NSW on Saturday, Jan 25th, state health authorities confirmed.
Chinese officials are scrambling to enforce containment measures, just days before hundreds of millions of people travel across the country and abroad for the Chinese New Year holiday.
Strict prevention and control measures are in force, granting authorities sweeping powers to lock down affected areas and quarantine patients — as occurred during the 2009 H1N1 (swine flu) outbreak.
China also would step up co-operation with the World Health Organisation, China’s National Health Commission vice-minister, Li Bin said. An emergency WHO meeting in Geneva was scheduled for late Wednesday to determine whether to declare a rare global public health emergency over the disease.
In Australia, the NSW Health Department’s executive director of health protection, Jeremy McAnulty said, with the coronavirus having been declared a notifiable disease in NSW, “if necessary people can be placed in isolation”.
Does the Bible reveal when the wrath of God will be poured out in the last days prior to Jesus return to earth? Yes! it does, and my friend Nelson Walters does a great job of revealing to you the many prophetic Scriptures that reveal when God pours out His wrath on an unrepentant, rebellious world.
First, the Rapture of His Saints followed immediately by the wrath of God poured out with the Trumpet and Bowl judgements contained in the Seven Sealed Scroll which Jesus opens as recorded by John in Revelation 5 & 6.
No sacred book of any other world religion reveals future events as does the Bible. It is unique in this regard. God’s prophets predict with amazing accuracy and descriptive detail – events of history many centuries before they took place and future events up to the end of this age.
“For I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like Me, Declaring the end from the beginning, And from ancient times things that are not yet done,” Isaiah 56:9-10
The ability to predict history with such accuracy implies the ability to control history. In fact, God the creator, the one who sustains the cosmos can say without contradiction, “My purposes will stand.”
One of the major themes of biblical prophecy is the destiny of Israel. From the birth of Israel as a nation to the final consummation of their destiny, every major stage has been predicted by its prophets. At least 80 percent of these prophecies have been already fulfilled, so it is reasonable to presume that the other 20 percent will be fulfilled with equal accuracy.
Interwoven with Israel’s history is the destiny of another people the church of Jesus Christ. The church had its origin within Israel and all the early Christians were Jews.
Jesus was Israel’s long awaited Messiah, but sadly the Pharisees and Sadducee’s rejected Him, and the Jews were cast out of their homeland and scattered across the world exactly as prophesied. However, the Bible tells us that God would gather them from all the nations and bring them back to their homeland at the appointed time. This extraordinary event happened in 1948, and it signalled one of the major signs Jesus gave us of His second coming.
One of the most exciting features of the period in which we live is that the destinies of Israel and the church are beginning to converge. Berean Christians recognise from the prophecies that Israel’s regathering to their homeland is one of the signs preparatory to Jesus second coming.
Is your church preparing its members for the tribulation that is prophesied prior to Jesus return? Is your church actively engaged in bringing in the “end times” harvest? If not, get into prayer to determine what it is God would have you do at this critical time in earths history.

Rabbi Eric Tokajer says the Good News of Jesus is beginning to spread throughout Israel, and it’s important for Christians to continue to support that effort.
The founder of Brit Ahm Messianic Synagogue in Pensacola, Florida, and the publisher of The Messianic Times, Tokajer, who conducts tours in the Holy Land, says the growth of Messianic ministries in Israel proves God’s hand indeed is upon that land
“Years ago, when I became a Jewish believer, there were only a handful of Jewish believers in Israel,” Tokajer told Dr. Steve Greene on a recent episode of Greenelines on the Charisma Podcast Network. “Now there are thousands, probably somewhere around 10,000 that are Jewish believers born in Israel. There are others that came from outside that live there, but when I became a believer, there were almost none.
“Now, there are hundreds of groups that meet together around the land that are sharing the Good News, which is part of end-times prophecy being fulfilled as God is re-grafting the natural branches into the olive tree.
“A lot of the Christian world never hears those stories. But if they go to Israel, they will actually see what’s happening where the blind see, the lame walk, the deaf hear and people are preached to in prison.
The Jewish people are discovering the power of the Holy Spirit and the power of Yeshua. And by the power of God the Good News will continue to spread in Israel.”
Netanyahu: ‘No choice but to go to war with Hamas’
Netanyahu said war against Hamas in Gaza appeared to be inevitableby World Israel News Staff
“There will be no choice but to enter a campaign, to war against Gaza,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in an interview with Israel’s Kan public radio on Thursday.
“Israeli citizens know perfectly well that I act responsibly and with discretion. I’ll will open the campaign at the most appropriate moment, I will determine it. When you are in charge you have to decide how you’re going to conduct the war… I won’t start it a second before conditions are optimal. I won’t go one minute before we’re prepared. And I won’t start it in one minute. We’re preparing for a different kind of war, and this is my responsibility,” Netanyahu said.
This is a video that you need to watch several times with your Bible open to Daniel 8. Nelson does a good job of opening up Daniel 8 looking at history to see if this prophecy has already been fulfilled.
I agree with Nelson that Iran (Shiite) is the ram of Daniel 8 and that with Iran’s current push into Syria and Iraq, into Lebanon with Hezbollah and Gaza with Hamas and south into Yemen means we are already seeing part of this prophecy being fulfilled. We are yet to see Turkey (Sunni) ( previous Ottoman Empire) react against Iran’s expansion but the Bible tells us this is inevitable and that a revived Ottoman Empire will result. We are then told this revived Ottoman Empire will be broken up into four after being defeated by the western super powers. The true Antichrist is the Little Horn that will come out of the northern region of the break up (possibly Turkey and he is possibly the Sunni Mahdi who has a resurrection experience “whose deadly wound was healed” Revelation 13:12. Imagine how Muslims around the world would get behind such a figure particularly if he deceptively teaches PEACE, PEACE. Moreover, the west likewise would look to such a man that can control the 1.4 billion Muslims in the world.
As Nelson states Bible prophecy proves the Bible is God’s word which can be used to evangelise the unsaved. It is a powerful tool which we need to use.
Jesus said that just before His return to rule and reign in the Millennium with a rod of iron, that the world would be in a state of lawlessness, as in the days of Noah. God has told us exactly what will unfold in the years before He returns. The Old Testament, written hundreds of years before Jesus’ birth, contains over 300 prophecies that Jesus fulfilled through His birth, life, death and resurrection. Sadly, the religious people of His day, the Sadducee’s and Pharisee’s didn’t get it and whilst there are far more prophecies about Jesus second coming than His first coming, the religious people of our day are not getting it as well. Wake up church.
“But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man (JESUS) be.” Matthew 24:37
The following report reveals that the world is totally out of control and governments have run out of options to fix it. Whilst these are the figures for the USA, let me tell you the numbers for Europe, China, Japan are worse. What follows is anarchy and we are seeing it more and more as is shown in France with the Yellow Vest movement.
According to the U.S. Treasury Department,America’s national debt was 22 trillion dollars on December 31, 2018.
The U.S. will have had a deficit in 88 out of 100 years and only 4 out of 62 years with a surplus.
America can’t even balance a single year’s budget, much less start paying down its net debt. We regret to conclude realistically –THE ACCUMULATED DEBT IS UNPAYABLE.
The Congressional Budget Office estimates that the interest expense on debt is expected to increase 186% to $929 billion annually by 2029 — surpassing all categories except for Medicare and Social Security. That is almost a trillion dollars annually! While these projections assume interest rates on 10-year Treasury bonds will remain below 3.8%,
A ONE PERCENT HIGHER-THAN-EXPECTED INTEREST RATE ON THE 10-YEAR BONDS WOULD ADD ANOTHER $1.9 TRILLION IN OVERALL INTEREST EXPENSE!
Expect God’s judgement on His church in these last days.
Both Ananias and Sapphira, together with Simon the sorcerer, attempted to introduce into the glory of the early Church corrupt values that would have defiled and greatly diminished her glory. However, it was stopped at the door and the glory was protected and allowed to increase.
In like manner, the true judgements of the Lord that produce holy fear and genuine repentance will return to the Church in these “last days”, so there can be a thorough cleansing and the glory of the Lord can be restored. Already, we see a great falling away in the church as it compromises with the world’s values. This will increase as tribulation builds: “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake” Matthew 24:9. But we also know the “end times” church will receive Holy Spirit power, as in the early church as described in the Book of Acts, so that “this Gospel of the Kingdom will be preached to all the world as a witness to all nations, and then the end will come.” Matthew 24:14
Smith Wigglesworth prophesied correctly back in 1927:
“There must be special preparation for the return of Christ and at least half of all believers will be totally unprepared. We have to see that these days have to come before the Lord can come. There has to be a falling away. I want to speak to you very exactly. All the people which are pressing into and getting ready for this glorious attained place where they shall not be found naked, where they shall be blameless, where they shall be immovable, where they shall be purified by the power of the Word of God, have within them a consciousness of the very presence of God within, changing their very nature and preparing them for a greater thing and causing them to be ready for translation.
This is the day of purifying. This is the day of holiness. This is the day of separation. This is the day of waking. O God, let us wake today! Let the inner spirit wake into consciousness that God is calling us.”
What an appropriate call for our day. Let us prepare now for what Jesus is calling us to do preach the Gospel of the Kingdom to our circle of contacts, our community where God has placed us.
