What in the World is Going On? Is God Real?

 

Does it seem to you like the world has gone crazy? Does it seem that right is wrong, wrong is right, good is evil and evil is good? Does it seem like everywhere you turn, bad things are happening and every day the news is full of disasters and fear?
 
You may ask yourself why is all this happening? If mankind is evolving, shouldn't we see improvements over the past? Shouldn't there be less wars, less crime, less racism, less hatred and division? Shouldn't we see such advances in technology that there should be plenty of food and water for everyone, little to no poverty, and peace and prosperity everywhere? Shouldn't we see huge advances in healthcare and people living longer, healthier lives? Then why do we see the opposite of that?  
 
The thing is, everything happening today was predicted long ago in the Bible, and I can prove it.  The Bible is a prophetic book. It is full of prophecies, many of which have come true. Sure, you might say, there were prophecies in there and then they just changed the Scriptures to say they happened. You’ve heard or been taught that the Bible has been changed over the years.  Actually, it hasn’t, because if you do your research, there are more copies of the extent text (closer in time to the original) of the Bible over any other archaic document. But that’s not what this post is about. I want to show you prophecies in the Bible that are coming true TODAY. (Since we've had millions of copies of the Bible since the printing press was invented, we can be assured that nothing has been changed since then) I want you to see that IF all these prophecies are coming true before your eyes, then you have to at least consider that the Bible is the Word of God and that God exists.  And if that is true, what does God expect from you? And why are all these things happening in the world today?  So, let’s start.  I make my conclusion at the end.

One World Government  

The Bible predicts that toward the end of the World, there would be a One World Government or World Kingdom initially under the rulership of ten “kings”. Scriptures (Daniel 7:23, Revelation 17, 18, 13) ,  If you are paying attention to news these days, you hear much talk about a New World Order. In fact our own US presidents have mentioned this over the years (on tape), and it’s on the back of our dollar bill in latin, "A New Order for the Ages".  We are finally seeing moves toward a global governance with the UN, The World Economic Forum, and the Great Reset. (You can google these things)  If you search for New World Order on the internet, it is interesting that it is listed as a conspiracy theory, but, like I said, several of our presidents have praised the idea.  Here’s an article of the History of the New World Order

The Bible predicts there will be 10 kings who rule over the world. Now, we see articles describing how the world can be divided into 10 regions

 One World Religion   

Revelation 13:11-17. 
Revelation 17

We are seeing moves for this all the time. Coesist bumper stickers, a pull toward uniting all the faiths as one. The Pope is now actively engaged in bringing all the major religions together. There are even plans for an Abrahamic Interfaith center in Abu Dhabi.

 One World Economy 

Revelation 13. The Bible says here that the Antichrist (or final world ruler) will have the ability to allow people or stop people from buying, selling and trading. This would imply that the world’s population will have some sort of digital code or chip or some technology through which they buy and sell things.  We, of course, are already seeing this coming to fruition. Everything is digital now. Most of our monetary transactions are digital. Hardly anyone deals in cash anymore. There is a push now to put your banking information on a chip you can insert into your hand so you just have to scan your hand at the store. Whole Foods/Amazon are already experimenting with this technology You can google all this information. The Great Reset, World Economic Forum. Digital Currency. All these programs are moving the world toward a global digital economy. See below for "Mark of the Beast"

Obsession with Jerusalem and dividing it 

Zechariah 12:1-3

What’s interesting about this prophecy is that Israel is such a tiny country (about the size of New Jersey), yet its capital is the source of so much contention, wars, and disputes. Why?

Large Earthquakes increasing in Frequency and intensity  

Matthew 24 :7, Mark 13:8, Luke 21:11, Revelation 6:12, Revelation 8:5

In the book of Revelation, there are many descriptions of worldwide calamities that could easily be caused by quakes and volcanoes

Also volcanoes are on the rise. Currently we have around 27 Active volcanoes

 Increase in lawlessness

Matthew 24:12

Not sure I have to prove this one to you.  Lawlessness is everywhere. This just isn’t reported crimes, it’s more an attitude of complete anarchy and chaos and a resistance to any authority. Defunding the police is just a small example, along with ignoring all immigration laws and allowing masses of people to cross the border. Look at the murders in Chicago this year.

 Increase in immorality and man’s moral character declining.

2 Timothy 3:1-5

But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!  

Greed, Lies, Theft, these things are more and more accepted today. Our own politicians lie to us routinely, along with our media. People walk into stores and carry out goods they haven’t paid for because of laws that say they can’t be prosecuted if the value is under a certain amount.. Surveys indicate that most people don’t think lying is wrong as long as no one gets hurt.  Companies are only out for the bottom dollar. Murder, rape, Homosexuality, Bestiality, Pedophilia, Adultery and Fornication are rampant.

Wars and Rumors of Wars

Matthew 24:6-7
Here’s a list of Wars we’ve had since the 1900s
Today we have terrorism, threats by China and Russia, India and Pakistan, China and Taiwan, The Middle East wars, Afghanistan, etc.. 

 Increase in knowledge and world travel.

Daniel 12:4

We have more access to knowledge at our fingertips than any other generation because of the internet and smart phones. Back in Daniel’s day they had horse and camels, today we have jets and rockets.

Plagues increasing and going global

Matthew 24:7   No need to comment here.

Famines increasing  Matthew 24:7, Mark 13:8, Luke 21:11  https://news.un.org/en/story/2020/09/1072712 and  https://news.un.org/en/story/2021/06/1094472

Signs in the Sky 

Luke 21:25 , Joel 2:30, Matthew 24:30

You can’t deny the sudden influx of UFO sightings and media coverage. Also there have been many meteor reports and asteroids that have nearly missed us as well as solar eclipses and blood moons. And of course, The Revelation 12 Sign that occurred on Sept 23, 2017. If you have an open mind and want to see some pretty scary sights caught on FAA cameras, check out this lady's YouTube channel

 The Falling away of the Faithful or Christians from the faith

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see that Christianity is on the decline.

 False teachers and doctrines that tickle the ears 

Matt 24:4-5,  2 Timothy 4:3-4, 2 Peter 2:1

Today we have many many cults and many false teachers out there, many of whom are in the Christian church. No need to go into all of this, except to say that it has vastly increased. Yes, cults have always been with us, but today, many of our own churches are preaching a false Gospel devoid of any mention of Repentance and sin or true discipleship. Many of our churches have been infiltrated with FreeMasons. 

 Intensifying of Christian Persecution 

Not reported in the main stream media Christian Persecution is at an all time High


·  just last year, over 340 million Christians living in places where they experience high levels of persecution and discrimination
·  4,761 Christians killed for their faith
·  4,488 churches and other Christian buildings attacked
·  4,277 believers detained without trial, arrested, sentenced or imprisoned

Mark of the Beast Technology   and monitoring of everyone on earth

Revelation 13:16-17

As mentioned above, this “mark” will be some kind of digital tattoo or chip inserted beneath the skin that will enable someone to buy or sell things. The technology for this is already here!

Think about what's going on with the current vaccine. Have you ever seen every government on earth trying to force their people to take a shot like you're seeing now? Many places are forbidden people who aren't vaccinated from entering stores and other public places, and from working at their jobs!  The Vaccine is not the mark, but we can easily see now how the Mark could be enforced worldwide.

Also, look up something called Quantum dot technology.  Bill Gates has a patent entitled Cryptocurrency System using Body Activity Data. Guess what the Patent number is? 666

 The Third Jewish Temple

Matthew 24:15, 2 Thessalonians 2:4

Prophecy indicates that the antichrist will enter the temple in Jerusalem and proclaim himself to be god. But currently there is no temple in Jerusalem and there hasn’t been for 2000 years. Yet, plans for one are in place. In fact, they have everything they need to erect a temple within months.

 

Israel's deserts will become like the Garden of Eden

Isaiah 51:3

Written: perhaps between 701-681 BC

Fulfilled: Being fulfilled now

In Isaiah 51:3, the prophet said that God will restore Israel and make it a paradise, like the garden of Eden. This foreshadows what is currently happening in Israel. The Jews have been irrigating, cultivating and reconditioning the land during much of the 1900s. Many of the country's swamps, which had been infested with malaria, have been converted into farmland. And water from the Sea of Galilee has been channeled through portions of the deserts, allowing some of the deserts to bloom. Much work remains, but parts of Israel are blooming again. Although it was described as a wasteland as recently as the late 1800s, Israel is now a food source for many countries. And at least 200 million of trees have been planted there during the past century.

 

Isaiah foretold of the worldwide return of Jews to Israel.

Isaiah 43:5-6

In Isaiah 43:5-6, the prophet Isaiah said that the Jews would return to their homeland from the east, the west, the north and the south. Isaiah lived about 2700 years ago. At that time, the Assyrians had forced many Jews in the northern kingdom of Israel into exile. Those Jews were taken to other areas in the Middle East. Then, about 1900 years ago, the Romans destroyed the city of Jerusalem and killed and exiled hundreds of thousands of Jews. Since then, the Jews have been scattered to virtually every country in the world. But, during the past century, millions of Jews have returned to Israel, from the east, the west, the north and the south.

From the east: Many Jews living in the Middle East moved to Israel by the early 1900s.

From the west: During mid-1900s, hundreds of thousands of Jews living in the West (Europe and the United States) began moving to Israel.

From the north: The former Soviet Union (Russia) is north of Israel. It refused to allow its Jewish residents to move to Israel. But, after years of pressure from other countries, Russia finally began to allow Jews to return to Israel during the 1980s. So far, hundreds of thousands of Russian Jews have moved to Israel.

From the south: Ethiopia, which is south of Israel, also refused to allow its Jews to return to Israel. But, in 1985, Israel struck a deal with Ethiopia's communist government to allow the Jews of Ethiopia to move to Israel. On the weekend of May 25, 1991, 14,500 Ethiopian Jews were airlifted to Israel.

Isaiah's prophecy was also correct in saying that the north (Russia) and the south (Ethiopia) would have to be persuaded to give up their Jews. Many countries pressured Russia for years before it began to allow its Jews to leave. And Ethiopia had to be paid a ransom to allow its Jews to leave.

Isaiah's prophecy was also correct in saying that the Jews would return "from the ends of the earth," and Isaiah said that many centuries before the Jews had been scattered to the ends of the earth. During the past 100 years, Jews living as far east as China, as far west as the West Coast of the United States, as far north as Scandinavia, and as far south as South Africa, have moved to Israel.

 

The ruins of Israel would be rebuilt

Amos 9:11, 13

 

In Amos 9:11, 13, the prophet said that God would restore the land of David. (King David ruled Israel from about 1010 BC to about 970 BC). The land of David - Israel - was conquered and destroyed by the Babylonians, Assyrians and Romans. The land has been in ruins for much of the past 2000 years. The Jews, who had been scattered throughout the world, began to return in large numbers during the past 100 years. Since then, they have been rebuilding many of Israel's ancient cities. Amos also said there would be continuous planting and harvesting. During the past 100 years, the Jews have been using advanced farming and irrigation techniques to turn barren land into productive farmland. Today, Israel is a source of food for many countries.

 

Ezekiel prophesied prosperity for modern-day Israel

Ezekiel 36:11

In Ezekiel 36:11, the prophet said that there would come a time when Israel would be more prosperous than it was in the past. The Bible describes Israel as being a prosperous nation during the time of King David and King Solomon about 3000 years ago. But, Ezekiel knew a very different Israel. In Ezekiel's day (he lived about 2600 years ago), the northern kingdom of Israel already had been decimated by the Assyrians, and the southern kingdom (called Judah) was being destroyed by the Babylonians. In the centuries that followed these destructions, Jews rebuilt the city of Jerusalem, but their homeland was destroyed again, by the Romans, about 1900 years ago. Since then, a majority of Jews have lived in exile. But during the past 100 years, millions of Jews from around the world moved to Israel and they have been rebuilding the country once again. Today, Israel again is an independent nation, as it was in the days of King David, and it is one of the world's most prosperous countries. In 1999, Israel had the highest per capita Gross Domestic Product of any nearby country, even though the surrounding countries have many oil resources.

 

So what do you do with this information?

These prophecies about Israel are what finally woke up this back-slidden, sinful woman to the truth that God exists and His Bible is true! Never in history has a nation been completely wiped out, their land left desolate and their people dispersed throughout the world for over 2000 years, only to have them return to that same land, have their same nation again with their same language and religion. Never. And the Bible predicted that would happen!

 

After reading all this, you have to conclude that the prophecies in the Bible made thousands of years ago are coming true today. And this is just a small portion of the prophecies in the Bible that have come true. There is NO WAY anyone living back then could have known the future, not in the degree of detail presented here. Yes, maybe they could have guessed one or two things, but look at all the prophecies coming true!! How could anyone know these things would happen. They wouldn’t. Not unless it was God who told them and had them write it down. Only the real God knows the future. Only God can tell us with such accuracy what’s going to happen! 

 

Think about it. How would any of the people who wrote the Bible know these things would happen? Most people, even back then, believed man would make progress, both in his ability to do things and his character. They would never have thought life on earth would be worse and worse, filled with wars, diseases and all these disasters. They would never have predicted a One World Religion or government, or how about a “mark” on their right hand or forehead that would enable them to purchase things? They could never have dreamed of that kind of technology.

 

Since these prophecies are coming true, one could conclude that the remainder of the prophecies in the Bible will also come true.  That’s why I’m posting this. The Bible foretells of a 7 year period of time called The Great Tribulation in which God’s wrath is being poured out on the earth. It will be such a time of great distress, natural disasters, and evil that God says He will have to cut it short or no one would be left alive. During this time, God’s enemy, Satan (and yes, he exists) will rule the earth and put everyone under his authority. He hates mankind and will do everything he can to kill as many as he can, especially those who refuse to worship him. Based on the above prophecies coming true in our lifetime, I believe this time is fast approaching.! 

 

The good news is that there is an escape for people who have received God’s free gift of salvation. The Bible tells of a snatching away of God’s children right before the Tribulation starts. He takes us to heaven for the entire 7 years of this horrible time on earth. That’s why God sent His Son Jesus to come here in human form to be sacrificed and die on a cross to pay for all of humanity’s sins. We are all sinful. We all make mistakes and do bad things, even the best of us. Because of that, we cannot ever be in God’s presence because His holiness would burn us up. But when Jesus died for us, he paid for all our sins, and if we trust in Him and have a relationship with Him, we are cleansed from every bad thing and we can go to heaven, either when we die or in when He comes for us. All you have to do is pray to God, repent of all your sins (repent means to confess them and also to want to change and not do them anymore), and then put your trust in Jesus.  After that, it’s so important to read the Bible and spend time in prayer with Jesus every day.  He loves you more than you know, and He wants to have a relationship with you. And yes, you can have a relationship with Him. even though we can’t see Him in the natural. He talks to us. He protects us. He answers prayer.

So I’m encouraging you to do this, and if you already think you have, recommit your life to Him. Time is very very short.  You do not want to be here during the Tribulation.

  1. Amen, dear lady! It is fulfilled Bible prophecy that convinced me 42 years ago the Bible's claims are true. And if prophecy is true, then my need for a saviour is also true. The rest, as they say, is history. Such exciting times, despite the corruption and degradation, we live in. Maranatha! Blessings, Judi

  3. Thanks, MaryLu! Hopefully we will all be rejoicing in the clouds very soon! A friend shared this video with me and I thought of you. I'm about 2/3 through it. It's very compelling in positing that early October could be the Feast of Trumpets rapture as some have suggested! I sure hope so!
