Great question of much importance to mankind as we travel down the cosmic illusion of time, created by a Holy God for His purpose and glory. Isaiah 46:10 To correctly and logically answer the question, we must look for clues in world history and then seek our answers in scripture, let us begin. Matthew 24:4-5 and then Mark 13:5-6 When the Lord was quizzed about this season and it's signs, note the opening clue is a warning about deception which is defined as. 1. a misleading falsehood. 2. the act of deceiving. 3. an illusory feat; considered magical by naive observers. While deception itself has been with mankind since the garden, the ability to deceive millions within seconds has not, 1960's satellite technology has made this possible. Consider only in our current season, can a tree fall in a remote part of the world and before it hits the ground, people are posting on it via their electronic wizardly. Mark 13:9 Abominations are now practiced in the public square and paraded with pride for all to see and celebrated as directed by their propagators of love and truth, brother the sinner can't be made uncomfortable in their sin you know. Mark 13:11 The state courts decree you have no religious right to refuse your state licensed services to any state protected class of people period and any who do will suffer lost for hate crimes and non compliance with the state. Mark 13:13 The religious flat Earth class of people seems to be the only group that is state and media approved for open mocking because of their beliefs, right is now wrong. Mark 13:28 Consider the parable of the fig tree, before 1948 there was no nation of Israel and the land was empty swamp or desert land. In the 1967 war the Jews won and occupied their capital city of Jerusalem for the first time in 2000 years. Today Israel exports it's overflow from it's soil production to feed the world populations. Today world leaders foolishly seek illusions of peace at any cost, where and with whom no peace can ever be found. When Israel signs a peace deal with her enemies the final seven year clock starts, but until the true prince of peace returns to rule in His glory no peace will last. The convergence of all these items taking place in a compressed span of time, that appears to be accelerating would seem to indicate we 're in the season spoken of by the prophets and our Lord Himself. The road before us has many tribulations, boring it will not be, but be of good courage my brothers and sisters for we have a promise note in hand from ONE Who can not lie.1 Cor 16:13 In the Lord's freedom and courage to stand.....warrior on
