Things To Come

Bible Prophecy helps us understand that things aren’t falling , they are falling

In the Last Days becomes a again

Matthew 24:32-36, Isaiah 11:11-12, Ezekiel 36-37, Book of Revelation

In the latter years (last years BBE) you will come into the land of those brought back from the sword and gathered from many people on the mountains of Israel, which had long been desolate; they were brought out of the nations, and now all of them dwell safely – Ezekiel 38:8 (NKJV)

…you will come up against My people Israel like a cloud to cover the land. It will come about in the last days that I shall bring you against My land, – Ezekiel 38:16 (NASB)

Know this first of all, that in the last days mockers will come with their mocking, following after their own lusts, and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all continues just as it was from the beginning of creation.” For when they maintain this, it escapes their notice that by the word of God the heavens existed long ago and the earth was formed out of water and by water, – 2 Peter 3:3-5 (NASB)

The Big Theme of The Last Days:

But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times (the last times DRB) some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons, – 1 Timothy 4:1 (NASB95)

Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away (rebellion NIV, apostasia) comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition – 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 (NKJV)

…evil men and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. But as for you, continue in…the holy Scriptures… – 2 Timothy 3:13-15 (NIV)

And he deceives those who dwell on the earth because of the signs which it was given him to perform in the presence of the beast (theeriou)… and cause as many as do not worship the image of the beast to be killed. And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark (charagma) on their right hand or on their forehead, and he provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark – Revelation 13:14-17 (NASB95)

Beast: theeriou – a little beast, little animal; an animal (Thayer’s)

Mark: charagma – a scratch or etching, from Charax: to sharpen to a point (Strong’s)

And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men (tycoons NET) of the earth; for by thy sorceries (pharmakeia) were all nations deceived. – Revelation 18:23 (KJV)

Sorceries: pharmakeia – medication (“pharmacy”)

i.e. (by extension) magic (literally or figuratively) (Strong’s)

The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” – Deuteronomy 31:8 (NIV)

Now, Lord, consider their threats and enable your servants to speak your word with great boldness. Stretch out your hand to heal and perform miraculous signs and wonders through the name of your holy servant Jesus.”

– Acts 4:29-30 (NIV)
