End Times – End of Days
God wants the world to know Him, for those who know His name will put their trust in Him. We long for that day…
For the earth will be filled
With the knowledge of the glory of the Lord,
As the waters cover the sea. (Habakkuk 2:14)
Because in that day…
At the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (Philippians 2:10-11)
So that the world would be ready to recognize their need for their Messiah and to recognize Yeshua, God’s word was filled with “hints” even from the Garden of Eden.
Slowly over the years the prophets of Israel were God’s mouthpiece pointing to every aspect of the Messiah’s life:
- His supernatural birth
- His birthplace
- His ministry
- His rejection by Israel
- His crucifixion, death, burial and resurrection.
Every one of the prophesies were fulfilled to the minutest detail. Today no one doubts the truth and importance of those prophesies.
And yet, many people do not apply that same faith to God’s prophetic word of the things which are to come. It’s been suggested that at least 30% of Scripture are those prophetic words including details about:
- Yeshua’s second coming
- The Rapture of the Church
- Judgement of Israel and of the nations
- The Tribulation (Jacob’s Trouble, Day of the Lord)
- Restoration of Israel
- Messianic Kingdom (Millennial Kingdom)
- New Jerusalem.
Admittedly it’s easier to understand prophesy AFTER it’s been fulfilled. Understanding prophesy of the future like putting together a 5,000+ piece jigsaw puzzle; you must first have the end result picture.
If you don’t have that picture, all you can really do is find the four corner pieces, and then you would need extreme patience. The more pieces that are put in place, the easier the task becomes and thus the process moves faster.
Albeit the picture in Scripture is relatively fuzzy regarding the exact timing and sequence of events so we need to look for the hints along the way.
This series is for those who have a slight understanding of what’s happening or no understanding, only confusion. It is our hope to find God’s hints so that we will all be able to stand firm in faith when the situations around us get more tumultuous.
