End Times?

A Brief Explanation Relating Today's Events to Bible Prophecy

At this point in time, I have to add a biblical scale plague of locusts in Africa and a virus pandemic to my contemplation of about 25 years of natural disasters and other signs seemingly of prophetic significance.  What is going on?  First consider an excerpt of Jesus saying on this matter.

And as He was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, "Tell us, when will these things be, and what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?"  And Jesus answered and said to them, "See to it that no one misleads you.  "For many will come in My name, saying, 'I am the Christ,' and will mislead many.  "And you will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars; see that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end.  "For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes.  But all these things are merely the beginning of birth pangs.  (Matthew 24:38 NASB)

If there are birth pangs, then something hidden is at work, working to give birth to something.  That something will reveal Satan's work in the world. So what is working unseen and what will it eventually reveal?  Consider the following passage for additional insight.

And you know what restrains him now, so that in his time he may be revealed.  For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only he who now restrains will do so until he is taken out of the way.  And then that lawless one will be revealed whom the Lord will slay with the breath of His mouth and bring to an end by the appearance of His coming;  that is, the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders. (2 Thessalonians 2:69 NASB)

Here it is indicated that something is holding back the unseen evil. This is the work of the Holy Spirit in the church holding back the evil.  Then when the removal of the church ends opposition, the Antichrist is revealed, by this time a witch powerful enough to do incredible signs.  According to the following scripture may also be a homosexual.

Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all.  (Daniel 11:37 KJV)

So all these difficulties are preparing the unveiling of the Antichrist.  Is it the Antichrist himself?  I think not, but rather that sins associated with him are increasing in power, influence, and number of participants.  Witchcraft has been released into the world through the rediscovery of ancient magic texts, then spread slowly for a while then accelerated.  So too, homosexuality has leveraged opportunity to advance itself until abominable acts have been legitimized as gay "marriage."  Further we are compelled to accept the insanity of someone saying their gender is other than what the physical facts say, and that to the harm of our rights.   So the Western secular world now is fully accepting the principles associated with this Antichrist.  What will prevent them from enthroning the man himself  when he is revealed?  Perhaps nothing.

According to the Bible all this is headed to destruction.  Is it possible to avert this disaster by turning aside from wickedness?  It is commonly thought that these events lead to an unavoidable end.  Consider that the book of Revelation depicts the guilty evildoers as unrepentant.

Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts. (Revelation 9:21 KJV)

However prophecy in all other contexts is purposed for repentance to save the wicked from destruction.  If it is possible to repent of this march toward destruction, the following add to the list of sins raised in the previous verse.

For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.  (Revelation 22:15 KJV)
But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. (Revelation 21:8 KJV Here dogs represent all perverse sexual sin particularly those of homosexuality and transgenderism)

Turn from your evil now before you destroy us all!
