Famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, and nation rising against nation, are a beginning of sorrows, but it does not mean the end is come.
One big sign of the end in scripture is that iniquity shall abound; it’s because many false prophets shall arise to deceive many, and worse off we "shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place" Matthew 24:15. And there shall be great tribulation. This of course will trigger his return. Isaiah 54:7 says, ”For a small moment have I forsaken thee; but with great mercies will I gather thee." The days shall be shortened.
But then Jesus said, "And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come" Matthew 24:14. Jesus said, "See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down" Matthew 24:2.
My friend, this gospel of the kingdom and the name of Christ still hasn’t been preached to all for a witness. "Even so, come, Lord Jesus" Revelation 22:20, just as you promised saying, "Surely I come quickly. Amen."
However, don’t be deceived; false prophets have not preached to us the real gospel, the real Christ, why so? Because they don’t know the true Christ and are neither his. They’ve preached to us another gospel and another Christ. Gospel means good-news, not this scaremongering, even prosperity gospel claimed by these false prophets.
Jesus said, "this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations." Jesus said, "Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect" Matthew 24:23-24. Many false prophets and false teachers rush on to say, "Lo, here is Christ." Even in some platforms people are quick to say, Lo, here is Christ, or there, but believe it not. I know people are hungry for God, but don’t believe everything folks. He said, "Behold, I have told you before...For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together" Matthew 24:25,28.
Summer is nigh folks, the day is far spent, fulfil prophecy in the right way, not by wrong means. Are you a prophet? Prophesy good news of the kingdom of God, You preach? Preach the good-news, do not deceive, but become a cloud of witness.
Tell us, when shall these things be?
Soon, but He comes when you’re not ready, and "Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing" Matthew 24:46. Doing what? Bearing witness!
