Sharing Bible Prophecy with non - Christians sometimes can be quite scary for them. However some people once you talk to them about current events & what’s going on in the world & connect it to Endtime Bible prophecy they become very interested. That’s what won me to Jesus in my personal situation. I had never read the Bible, although I was a Catholic by loving pressure from my parents. I always looked at the Bible as a Book that old ladies read. No offense to older ladies as I was very young at the time & had that wrong concept.
When I was young I did believe in God & that Jesus did come & die for my sins & He rose again, but this was basically what I learned in the Catholic Church.
In my pre-teen & teen years my relationship with God at the time was like this. If I was in a Baseball game in High School & maybe I was in a situation where if I got a base hit & bring in the winning run, then beforehand I made a deal with God that I would stop smoking cigarettes or whatever bad habits I had if He’d just let me get a hit & win the game. Ha! However, if I did get that hit & win the game my commitment with God was usually over in a few hours & I was back smoking again & still in to other bad habits.
But in the next crucial game, I was again asking the Lord, “please Lord help me to get this hit & this time I’ll really stop this or that bad habit, only to back to those habits even though He answered my desperate prayer request to be the hero or whatever the case was.
In High School my priorities was surfing, girls, baseball & then Study in that order. At night girls would come before surfing! After High School I attend a Junior College & studied Police Science to become a police officer. I was one class away from getting an Associated Arts Degree in Police Science, but I changed my mind & didn’t want to be a Police officer so I got a job at Sears & Roebuck.
At this point in my life I began to search for answers to life. I also became very interested in world current events & was starting to tune into what was going on in the world.
During my life in High School & College years it was like I was in a bubble. I lived in a nice village in Southern California. I lived in the valley so I was pretty close to the beach to go surfing & lived close to the mountains.
When I turned 16 my parents gave me a hand me down Ford Mustang. My Dad, Mom, & I each had a Ford Mustang. We were the Mustang Sally Family!
Anyway, back to the current events & the connection to Bible Prophecy. Like I mentioned I started to get very interested in what was going on in the world. Why was their war, rich people & very poor people & poverty? Plus the hell of war, the killing & maiming of innocent people. My suburbia bubble was popping & I began to see what the world was really like & it was a bit of a shock!
I started to question life itself! What happens when we die & is there really a heaven & what is it like! Is their also a hell? I was really searching for some truth as I was really lost spiritually.
But I ended up having an unexpected game changer! Here’s what happened to me! I was with my girlfriend & another couple & we were talking about current events as we were driving Home from a music concert & then a party.
In our political & world conversations my girlfriend’s friend said, “did you know that what’s happening in the world is predicted in the Bible? And she started sharing from her memory parts from Matthew Chapter 24. Jesus was telling His disciples what would be the Sign of His 2nd coming and the end of this age! She was basically quoting from Matthew 24:3,6-8,14
MATTHEW 24:3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, 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?
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.
MATTHEW 24:7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
MATTHEW 24:8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
MATTHEW 24:14 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.
As the girl was sharing this information on wars, famines, & earthquakes it was like I had a news feed connected to me & I was remembering the various wars that happened, famines , & major Earthquakes over the years!
This was quite a long time ago but now you can really see a big increase in famines, pestilences (diseases) and earthquakes. That’s what Jesus said in verse 8. “All these are the beginning of sorrows.” In the original Greek “beginning of sorrows” is “Birth Pangs”. In other words like a women giving birth, the birth pangs would be closer together in timing & the pain would continually increase until the baby was born, but this was in relationship to Jesus 2nd coming.
So like the world today where we’re seeing a record number of earthquakes, famines, pestilences & they continue to increase. Geologists say we’re going to see more great quakes around the world like what happened in 2004, with Sumatra Earthquake & the destructive Tsunami.
She also said that in the future people would need to decide to drop out of society!
After she shared all this it was like the scales fell of my eyes & from then on I knew there was a plan for man. Jesus came here the 1st time & preached the Gospel & died on the cross for our sins & was resurrected after 3 days. But the Bible says he’s coming back again a second time.
MATTHEW 24:29 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:
MATTHEW 24:30 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.
MATTHEW 24:31 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.
It was like a finger was snapped & all of a sudden I woke up to a spiritual truth. In a very general way at that time I understood God’s plan & that plan was laid out in the Bible in the Book of Daniel, Revelation, Matthew Chapter 24 & other books in the Bible! Wow!
When girl also shared that in the future people would need to drop out of society! I couldn’t quite understand this when I first heard it. But later in life & studying extensively Bible Prophecy, there’s a world Government coming who will be led by the Antichrist & False Prophet & its eventual economic system will be that you have to receive a Mark in Your Right hand or forehead to be able to buy & sell. Here’s what the passages say,
REVELATION 13:15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast (Possibly an Android with Super Computer knowledge?), that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
REVELATION 13:16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
REVELATION 13:17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
REVELATION 13:18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. 666
In current events there are now a lot of people getting Micro Chip Implants. To open locked doors, health reasons, many other conveniences. All of our Banking cards & Passports have microchips embedded in them. So not only is there a war on cash going on in the world now, but the chip technology is growing leaps & bounds. The vision & goal is to eliminate cash & use chip technology to buy & sell in society.
I recently talked to s Swedish girl, who worked at “Visa” & she said that computer chipping is becoming very popular & met a man that came to the visa office & he does most if not all his transactions via chip technology.
So there’s coming a time when it will be mandatory to have a chip in your right hand or forehead to buy & sell. Although a lot of people think that this technology is cool, but there is very serious ramifications to this economic system.
REVELATION 14:9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast (Antichrist) and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,
REVELATION 14:10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:
REVELATION 14:11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.
Learning about this technology & connecting it to Bible Prophecy, I understand why people will need to make a decision to drop out of society under such a totalitarian economic & political situation. In Revelation Chapter 12 it points out that many people will flee into safe locations during these 3-1/2 years of Great Tribulation.
REVELATION 12:6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.
REVELATION 12:14 And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.
Other’s will stand up against this system by warning people not to accept this 666 economic system & will explain what is happening & what to do!
DANIEL 11:32 And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.
DANIEL 11:33 And they that understand among the people shall instruct many: yet they shall fall by the sword, and by flame, by captivity, and by spoil, many days.
Some Christians will be killed for their faith.
REVELATION 20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
Are you getting ready for the awesome endtime events that are transpiring? First ask Jesus into your heart & receive the free gift of Eternal Salvation, if you haven’t already & study God’s word in the Bible & warn others about Bible Prophecy.
