June 10: End Times

 

When Adam and Eve disobeyed God’s and ate the forbidden fruit, sin entered the world. 

     From that moment onward mankind found itself in a continual struggle with God.  Yet the real battle was between Satan and God: Satan wanting to usurp God’s authority at whatever the cost….

 

The Bible records the complete history of this epic battle, starting from its tragic beginning until its glorious conclusion when God makes all things new!

 

It is important to understand that we MUST see this battle not only from our perspective, but from God’s.  We don’t often consider God’s feelings: sadness, pain, anger, jealousy, love….

 

God is patient, long suffering, but there comes a time when, like any good parent, He must take action to end the battle for eternity. He must judge the world, first Israel and then the nations and punish wickedness, first in Israel and then the nations.

 

Although the Bible is silent about the exact timing of the end of the battle, it gives us signs of the beginning of the end.

  • First we see the world going through massive changes as it seems Satan is having more influence.
    • The downward spiral of society increases in influence and speed
      • That which we used to call good is now considered evil
      • That which we all agreed was evil is now flaunted as good…paraded down our streets in in the media
    • Then there is a red line….and the final battle begins
      • In other words we don’t know exactly when this will happen
      • But we do have its length of time

 

The prophets tell us that there will be seven years of tribulation followed by a unique 1,000 years of relative peace. 

 

And then the end, except the “end” is actually the new and everlasting beginning!

 

This unique series will chronicle God’s perspective of these “end of days” as revealed through the Hebrew prophets and the Apostles.

  • God’s purpose for judgement
  • God’s plan
  • God’s promises

 

As we look through God’s eyes, we see the rebellion and rejection of God’s laws, God’s love, and God’s cry for repentance.

 

Then we’ll look more closely at His plan and rejoice as we hear His promises of Israel’s restoration and ultimately the New Jerusalem.

 

Our goal is not merely to pray God’s Word but, as intercessors, to partner with Him by preparing ourselves and others for this most crucial and critical times by:

  • Committing ourselves to the urgency of prayer
  • Discerning the times
  • Accepting the responsibility to proclaim God’s Word.

 

PRAY FOR THE HOLY SPIRIT TO OPEN YOUR HEART AND MIND TO HEAR THE WORD OF THE LORD FOR ISRAEL AND THE NATIONS.
