Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up you heads, because your redemption draws near” (Luke 21:28)
Tsunamis. Earthquakes. Nuclear Threats. Terrorism. On-Going Conflicts in the Middle East. Even skeptics are beginning to ask, “Are we living in the last days?” Are these the “signs of the times” the Bible tells us will happen before the return of Christ?
Jesus said, “Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up you heads, because your redemption draws near” (Luke 21:28) I believe that the events happening in our world right now are indeed signs of the times. We are living in a time in which we are literally seeing Bible prophecies that were given hundreds of years ago fulfilled before our very eyes.
Our current sermon series, What in the World is Going on? (beginning on Feb. 11th) will seek to answer questions about the Second Coming of Christ. Over the course of the next several weeks I will be sharing prophetic clues that will help prepare us for tomorrow and find peace in troubled times.
Are we headed toward Armageddon? You can prayerfully draw your own conclusions as we consider what the Bible has to say. One thing is for sure, there has never been a generation closer to the return of Christ than we are right now.
There’s a story about a little boy who often had lunch at his grand-mother’s house. One of the things he especially enjoyed was watching the old grandfather clock strike 12:00 pm. It was one of those clocks that chimed every hour on the hour. One day something was wrong with the clock’s inner mechanism. When the clock struck noon, instead of chiming 12 times it chimed 16 times. The boy ran into the kitchen and exclaimed, “Grandma! Grandma! It’s later than it’s ever been before!”
That is an apt description of the times in which we live… It is later than it’s ever been before!
