Signs of the Times – August, 2018

Dear Friends,

NOTE: I have had this blog post “in the works” for over a month – but things are happening in the world SO FAST that every day that I thought to post it, it was outdated and I needed to update the list.  I was also talking with a friend who is aware of the times we live in, and we were commenting that we are sure thankful for the peace that we have, because a) we know why this is all happening, and b) we know who wins in the end! If I did not, then I would be absolutely freaked out by so many 6+ magnitude earthquakes (several very deep.). But it all is coming into line. If you are not aware of what’s happening, please be sure to read all the way to the bottom.   ~Bryan

I’ve been watching the turmoil in the world lately, wondering if these are “signs of the times.” Sometimes it’s hard to discern, as whenever a natural disaster or weather phenomenon is brought up, inevitably the response is, “yeah, but we’ve always had X…” And there’s truth to that for sure. But then I start to notice “convergence” – a LOT of these events happening in parallel is a wake-up call. And before you scoff at this, honor yourself and at least try to disprove it – otherwise you confirm even more prophecy from the bible that there will be scoffers in the end times (2 Peter 3:3, Jude 1:18) so be sure to seek truth.

When we look at the bible in Matthew 24, we are told that the “times of the end” will be much like the times of Noah, and specifically in verse 24, we are told “For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark.” I believe this to mean that people will be behaving as normal, doing the normal things that people do. I wonder if this is a warning to us to pay closer attention to what is going on around us, and maybe to consider that yes, natural disasters are a common occurrence around the world, but that this manyof them convergingat one time is definitely NOT normal, and should be a warning to us to take heed (especially when events agree with the historically accurate bible.)

Let’s just take a look at some weather and natural disaster happenings of late: 

Worldwide Temperatures are on the upswing (no, sorry, it’s not “global warming” or “climate change” – that’s been debunked many times over. First it was “global Warming” then they found out the earth was actually cooling, so it was changed to “climate change) – it’s all just Satan’s way to try to label it something other than biblical.
     —> Yeah, but we’ve always had hot years…

Volcanoes: As-of 8/25/2018, 50+ active volcano warnings at Kilauea just finished 3 months of eruption!
 —> Yeah, but we’ve always had volcanoes erupting…

Worldwide flooding (Romania, Spain, Thailand, Mexico, Chile, China, Greece, Turkey, Nepal, Pakistan, South Korea, Egypt, Several US Cities (Pittsburg,) and more – check
     —> Yeah, but we’ve always had floods

Wars, and Rumors of Wars (Syria Civil War, Iran uranium production, threats to close the Strait of Hormuz, just to name two…) Iran, Turkey and Russia with weak or collapsing economies (which almost always spells war) Ezekiel 38 & 39 anyone?
     —> Yeah, but we’ve always had wars

Hailstones the size of golf balls and softballs  (South Dakota, Chicago, Colorado, etc – internet search for more)
     —> Yeah, but we’ve always had hail

Worldwide mass animal deaths seems to increase every week. Florida and it’s seawater turning red (algae) which also kills marine life (and is also prophesied in the bible.)
—> Yeah, but animals have always died

Earthquakes on the Rise (some related to Volcanoes, some not – USGS says no, others analyze the data and say YES). 22 earthquakes 3.7 and above in the last 30 days (from 8/26) INCLUDING many 6.0+, some 7+, and at least one 8.2, often in unusual places (bible says in Luke 21:11 that “There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven.”

The Pacific “Ring of Fire” is extremely active. Hawaii is at the center of the Ring of Fire.

EXCELLENT article here from ZeroHedge

    — Yeah but we’ve always had earthquakes

Apostasy (falling away from God) – One just has to look at the world. The USA was once considered a “Christian” nation (and was likewise blessed.) Jesus is being denied more than ever before, and the world is falling into moral failure. Pedophilia rampant in the largest religious organization in the world. And the fact that many will scoff at information like this is again falling away – how many prophecies do you hear taught from the pulpit? Prophecy makes up a SIGNIFICANT portion of the bible.

Why Prophecy Matters

And on and on it goes, with each passing day.. Convergence.

As with any data sets, I’m sure with enough searching one could find plenty of data to ease the mind that “everything is OK.” But when I combine these, with other signs that I am seeing mentioned in the bible, I tend to want to do what the bible commands… which is to “Look Up!”

Anyone noticing a trend, or is it just me?

If I have your attention, you can go deeper by reading THIS excellent article, as well as THIS one.  If I don’t yet have your attention, I recommend you look back over this and study for yourself. Please consider that I would not be sharing this with you if I had not become quite convinced myself.

Friends and loved ones: I only bother to make posts like this because I’m concerned for those that don’t have an ongoing relationship with Jesus. Eternity is a real thing – there’s waaay too much proof in the bible to doubt it – and our society has done an EXCELLENT job through science and technology to convince us otherwise. My heart wants every reader here to make the correct eternal choice – the default choice is not a very desirable one (lack of a conscious choice is still a choice with a less-than-desirable outcome.) If you are not sure of your eternal status and would like to be sure, please reach out to me – I’d love to share more with you! If you are a lover of Jesus, please make sure that he “knows”  you – yes, we are saved by grace and not by works, but choosing Him without chasing Him (relationship) may result in Him saying “I never knew you” (Matthew 7:23) – the original language of the word “knew” implies a very deep and intimate “knowing.” It’s NEVER too late to cultivate this with Him! (Eternity is for everyone – we are completely free to choose where we spend it.)
