Beyond Today Seven Prophetic Signs Before Jesus Returns
Darris The Bible reveals Jesus Christ willcome back to our world to reign over every nation. But whené What specific things willhappen in the world leading up to His returné Did you know that some of them are happeningright nowé Today, we are going to look at seven distinctthings the Bible tells us will have to happen before the return of Christ. Some prophecieshave already been fulfilled. The rest are unfolding before our eyes. What must happenbefore Christ returnsé Find out, as we examine quot;Seven Prophetic Signs Before Jesus Returns.quot; Announcer Join our host, Darris McNeely,and his guests, as they help you understand
your future on Beyond Today! Darris One day Jesus gave His followersa lesson in forecasting. quot;Then He also said to the multitudes, quot;Wheneveryou see a cloud rising out of the west, immediately you say, 'A shower is coming' and so it is.And when you see the south wind blow, you say, 'There will be hot weather,' and thereis. Hypocrites!quot; He said. quot;You can discern the face of the sky and of the earth, buthow is it you do not discern this timeéquot; (Luke 12:5456). Jesus knew people were good at looking intothe sky to determine the weather. He used
this habit to chastise them that though theycould see whether rain or warm weather was coming, they could not understand the signsof their time in historyâ€”they could not quot;discern this time.quot; For this group of people,they could not see that Jesus of Nazareth, the man standing before them, teaching themwith many signs and deeds, was the prophesied Messiah. Now how about usé In our timeé Can we quot;discernthis timequot;â€”today, our world, the twentyfirst centuryé On Beyond Today, we have a policy never tospeculate or try to calculate the exact date
Jesus Christ will return. That isn't the pointof prophecy. Prophecy is revealed in the Bible for one reasonâ€”and that's to inspire usto turn to God. God's hand is on history, and now is the time to seek a relationshipwith Him. The Bible is full of prophecies. Some havealready come to pass. Many are yet to come. When we examine what's already happened andunderstand what's still coming, we then begin to get a general idea of where we are in thesequence of Bible prophecy. We can then quot;discern our time.quot; As we study the Bible, we can identify sevendistinct things that must happen before the
return of Jesus Christ. Let's look at thesespecific events because they must happen in today's world before Christ returns. We want to go a little bit further in helpingyou to understand and study this as well, so we have also prepared a free study aidfor you. This study aid will help you learn more about each of these seven prophecies. As we will see, some have already been fulfilledwhile others wait for the future. 1. Let's look at the first one. It's the abilityto destroy all human life. Jesus talked about how dangerous the worldwould be when these events would begin to
take place. In Matthew 24:22 He said, quot;unless those dayswere shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect's sake those days will be shortened.quot;Unless Jesus returns and intervenes, mankind would wipe itself out. Now this reveals to us the first endtimeprophecy: Mankind must have the ability to end life, all life, on earth. Throughout history mankind hasn't had theability to end all human life the world over. War is horrific. There has also been no wayto end all human life in a short amount of
What Signs Must Take Place Before the Second Coming of Christ
But, guys, I want you to look at this listthat we're given of what must take place, according to Matthew 24, before Jesus returnsto earth. Let me just read them, and I want you to pick out the ones that really strikeyou. Matthew 24:428. Number one, â€œMany shall come in my name and deceive many.â€�Number two, wars and rumors of war, nation against nation. Maybe, Jimmy, you want totalk about that one. Three: famines in the world. Four: pestilences or plagues. Fifth:earthquakes. Six: they will kill Christians. Seven: many shall betray one another. Eight:false prophets shall deceive many. Nine: the love of many will grow cold. Ten: the gospelshall be preached in all the world. Eleven:
abomination of desolation shall take place;people will flee Jerusalem. There'll be more false Christs. And immediately afterthe tribulation of those days we're going to see cosmic signs. The sun will be darkened.The moon will not give its light. Stars will fall from the sky. And then they will seethe Son of Man coming, the Bible says. What, Jimmy, signs in that list talk to youéDeYoung: Let me talk about two of them. He said there in Matthew 24:67 that there willbe wars and rumors of wars. â€œSee ye be not dismayed, the end is not yet; for nation shallrise against nation and kingdom against kingdom.â€� Now, I was speaking on that particular subjectat a church in Columbus, Georgia. Now, Columbus,
Georgia, is a military town. And during mymessage I said there are 53 wars going on in our world today. Now, I thought that wasa very outstanding statement. But when I concluded the message, a Colonel came up to me. He wasin the United States Army. And he said, â€œ DeYoung, I'm going to have to correct you.â€�I said, â€œWell, what did I say wrong, siréâ€� Well, he then told me he that had just graduatedfrom the War College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. That's where they take the line officersand train them for having to go to war. And he said those people who know the facts toldhim there were 157 wars going on in our world today. I was just about a third of what'sreally happening.
When you look at the Middle East, the entirecontinent of Africa is in war. You come into the Gaza Strip, there's Fatah and Hamas,two factions of the Palestinians, they're at war with each other. There's almost tobe a civil war in Israel among the Jewish people because those living in the Jewishsettlements say they're not coming out and the government says we're going have toevacuate you. They're ready to go to war. And I probably don't have to expand muchfarther in the rest of the Middle Eastern nations. Iran, getting ready to attack, andtry to destroy Israel; a coalition of nations coming together. So that's that particularaspect of some of the signs Jesus was talking
about. And He did this about 2,000 years ago.Then in Matthew 24:15, I think this may well be one of the most outstanding signs of thefact that we're close to the tribulation period, He said, â€œWhen you see the abominationof desolation spoken of by the prophet Daniel, flee,â€� get out of Jerusalem. Now, the abominationof desolation is when the Antichrist, 2 Thessalonians 2:4, walks into the temple, going into theholy of holies, and he claims to be God. That is the abomination of desolation. But theremust be something that happens before he can walk into the holy of holies: There has tobe a temple there, and there is no temple there.But I'm here to tell you, and I've searched
this through for 25 years, done a lot investigation,met with all the personalities, watched all the projects going on. They're ready tobuild that temple. They have 28,000 men who have, in their estimation, qualified to bepriests and trained to be priests. They have the high priest selected. I talked to him,this rabbi in the Old City of Jerusalem; I asked him, I said, â€œWhat about the SanhedrinéI heard the Sanhedrin has been reformed. Is that correctéâ€� He said, â€œYes.â€� Isaid, â€œHow do you knowéâ€� He said, â€œI'm the chairman of the Sanhedrin.â€� I thoughtthat kind of proved the point. I said, â€œWhat about the priestly garmentsé I understandyou were the first one who received your priestly
