4 And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. 6 And you will hear of wars and rumours of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation will rise above nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.
Matthew 24: 4-7
The bible is like a road map (GPS) leading us to our destination. Just like the GPS will point out construction up ahead, the bible gives us signs as to what will be going on as this earth nears its end.
Right now there is much unrest in the world, but as bad as it is, according to the above scripture, there is a lot worse to come. Most of us may think that the famines and viruses and earthquakes that we have now are pretty bad, but the bible says they are only the beginning of heartaches. I also think of the Government as they speak of ‘Global Warming,’ are they right in saying that we will get more and more vicious storms….yes. According to the bible things will get a lot worse. Can the Government do anything to correct the situation that we’re in….no. If we are to believe the bible there will be major earthquakes and pestilence, and famines. These are all signs that we are almost at the end of time. In spite of all this, of course we still recycle and do our part, but as soon as sin entered the world, the earth was cursed, and things started to deteriorate from then.
Because God is Love, and because He is Merciful, He is giving His people this time to get under His protection and form a relationship with Him, He wants us all to be saved and none lost, but of course He will never force us as we all have a free will. It is our choice to accept God and eternal life….or not.
The Signs of the Times and the End of the Age…..Matthew 24
