It’s another beautiful morning both outside and inside! Good morning! All of the posts in this series have been revolving around the Rapture and some end time news. But how do we know we are in the end times? Like any other teaching, we Christians must back everything with the Scriptures, like good Bereans, amen?
The Bible’s Old Testament Prophets (major prophets and minor prophets) can be found from Isaiah to Malachi. One of the major prophets, Daniel, reveals a lot about these end times. For example,
Do you see and understand that, reader? Daniel was told in verse four of this prophecy that in the “time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.” Before the 1900’s, man traveled pretty much the same way as in Old Testament times. Then cars, bullet trains, and planes just kept getting better and better. We can see how “many run to and fro.” You might say that I am stretching it here but just think about Daniel for a moment. He never saw a car, train or plane: yet he was trying to describe his vision. He finished writing this book around 530 BC so to him, it must have appeared as though “many shall run to and fro.”
Secondly, Daniel 12:4 states that “knowledge shall be increased.” Wow! Homes began having their own version of a computer in the late 1980’s. I know this because I lived in one of those homes where my computer had a 10MB hard drive!!!! I thought that was wonderful, LOL! According to IBM in 2009, “In the next couple of years, information will double every 11 hours.” Today, there are thumb drives that are 2 terabytes (TB)!!! (10 MB = 0.00001 TB). Today’s laptops are millions of times more powerful than the original UNIVAC computer built in 1951! I think we can safely say that knowledge has increased since Daniel’s time.
To further “blow your minds,” let’s just think about cell phones! Do you remember the first ones? That’s why I put a graphic of one of the first cell phones above. The only thing this cell phone could do is make a call. Nothing else! Now cell phones can go on the internet while you are talking on its speaker and sending an email, all at the same time!
Can you see now how the two witnesses’ death in Revelations will be seen all over the world? Friend, we are most certainly in the end times. If the Thessalonians thought they were in the end times, how much more are we in those end times today?
The Bible is clear as to what events lead into the end times, as we see in Daniel. And since we are in those end times, then we can look up and see that the Rapture is not only imminent but if we are still alive, WE will be the ones to experience it! Praise the Lord!! \o/
Does this excite you, reader? It surely does me! But to the one who is not saved, it is a different story. Friend, it is no coincidence that God has placed you here for such a time as this so that you may be saved.
