Today’s Events – Rapture Soon?
By Dennis Huebshman
After reading several articles about events happening world-wide, I am convinced we are rapidly approaching the “End Times”. There is no way to list all the signs in one message, but here’s a few that stand out for me.
One sign that has caught my attention is about a Red Heifer being needed to complete the process of having a proper sacrifice for the New Temple. Numbers 19: 2-6 says God told Moses to get a Red Heifer without blemish or defect to be sacrificed for the sins of Israel. Further, the animal must have never been yoked or mated, and even if two off-color hairs are detected the animal would be disqualified. There have been searches ever since May 14, 1948 when Israel once again became a nation. The thought was that if things could be set up, eventually Jerusalem would again belong to the Jews, and a new temple could be built. In 1967, Jerusalem again came under control of Israel for the first time in almost 2000 years, and just this year our President recognized it as the true capital of Israel for the first time. Today, all implements for the Temple are ready for when it is built to start the sacrifices, but the Red Heifer hadn’t been found. Several were looked at in other countries, but something always disqualified them.
Then, I read an article just recently about a herd of Red Angus Heifers that are being raised in Israel in hopes of completing this requirement. The entire process of raising them is being done in strict accordance with Biblical Commandment, and we may hear very soon there is positive results. All that is needed is the Temple, and we know it will be built because Jesus said it would be there when the antichrist defiles it at the middle of the Tribulation.
Next, the current conflict with Hamas, Hezbollah, Iran and almost all the other Arab nations is absolutely on track. Further, with Turkey and Russia becoming partners with Iran for the first time in history, the coalition is complete for Ezekiel 38/39. (the other nations mentioned are ready to fall in line at any time.) This has all come about in just the past couple years and was aided by America’s previous administration. Just about the entire world is anti-Israel with the exception of our current administration, however when the conflict starts Israel will face their invaders alone as prophesied.
For no valid reason, the rest of the world blames Israel for just about everything Israel is being advised by all sides to divide or give up their land that was provided to them by the Lord God Jehovah. Israel has tried to do everything they reasonably can, but it’s never enough. Descendants of Ishmael (Arabs) will not be satisfied until there is no Israel, or any Jew left alive. God has said that would never happen. People need to read His word.
It’s interesting to note, there are 21 separate Arab nations, yet not one has provided land for the Palestinians who have never had a country of their own before. God said that once Israel was back in their land, they would NEVER be removed again. He said He would not do this for their sake, but because of His Name. (Isaiah 48:11; Ezekiel 36:22.)
We should understand that by the U.S. giving funds to Iran and the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), we are violating our own laws reference funding terrorist networks. They love our money but hate us which really makes no sense for us to provide it. Also, they use the funds to cover terror attacks inside Israel and other parts of the world including the United States. President Trump has slowed the funding down, but it needs to be cut off entirely.
Mentioning that Russia is involved is another key to end-time events. Even ten years ago, this was not the case. Then Israel discovered huge oil and gas deposits, and Russia is very interested in getting control of them. They’ve even gone so far as to back Syria’s Assad in order to gain a sea port and land bases near Israel. When the attack finally comes, Russia will be in place to do their part. Again, they need to read their Word from God, because He’s also in place, and will do His part.
There is a marked turning away from the true faith – apostasy – that is gaining momentum daily. (1 Timothy 4:1) Churches are practicing “progressive Christianity” where the Church is bending (breaking actually) God’s word to meet today’s desires rather than follow the truth. It’s more about keeping the attendance and contributions up rather than keeping souls out of Hell. Problem is, this won’t work in God’s eyes, and a reason Jesus said, “few there will be that enter.” (Matthew 7: 13-14) God is not surprised by any of this as Jesus said there would be a turning away just prior to His return along with wars and rumors of wars, famines, and earthquakes in diverse places. (Matthew 24)
We see many other signs pointing to a New World Order such as the European Union, and even the Pope calling for a one-world government with a one-world currency. The pace is quickening almost daily. Jesus said, “Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift your heads because your redemption draws near.” (Luke 21:28)
There are many people that are experiencing dread and uncertainty over all this and that’s understandable. For those of us that are witnessing prophecy come to life, the times are actually exciting. Worldly people do not understand the reason for their anxiety and our anticipation, but it is summed up in one very short phrase: Jesus Is Coming Soon! We don’t know the day or hour, and I will not begin to set it here, but we definitely know we are in the season which Jesus said we should be aware of. Never before in all history could all this have taken place but out generation is absolutely on schedule.
Whatever time we have left, I encourage all who have not accepted Jesus as their savior to consider doing so. Satan tells you there’s plenty of time, but that’s his biggest lie. Also, he would like you to skip Jesus and believe all religions are the same with the same God. Also, not so.
Joshua 24:15 says determine who you will serve, but for me and my house we will serve the Lord. We would love to share Him with you if you would only so choose.
