WHAT IS GOING ON WITH OUR WORLD?

Earthquakes, Tornadoes, Floods, Tsunamis, Hurricanes, Famines, Oil spills, Financial failures, Cancer and all kinds of sickness, Murders, All kinds of evil deeds, Hedonistic seeking of pleasure, Terrorism, Wars, Political corruption. All these are on the increase in occurrences and intensity year by year. WHAT IS GOING ON WITH OUR WORLD?  

What is it going to take to wake us up? Who has the answer to what is going on with our world? Why is God allowing all this destruction to happen? What is all this leading up to? It seems all evil forces have taken over our world and there is no hope. Is there hope left?

Jesus Christ was talking with His disciples about all these things, and He gave the answer. Jesus saw down through the ages to our time, and He told His disciples what was going to happen, and what the meaning of all these things would be. Then He said; “25 See, I have told you beforehand.”  Matthew 24:25.  

Here are some of the things Jesus told His disciples that day as they gathered around Him on the Mount of Olives. We find this record in Matthew chapter 24. “Take heed that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. 6 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all[a]these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences,[b] and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.”   

“Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. 10 And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. 11 Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. 12 And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. 13 But he who endures to the end shall be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.”

29 “Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 30 Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.”

32 “Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near. 33 So you also, when you see all these things, know that it[d] is near—at the doors! 34 Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place. 35 Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away.”

36 “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven,[e] but My Father only. 37 But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 38 For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, 39 and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.”  

Jesus is clearly telling us in this scripture that there will be signs of His coming.  We do not need to fear, for all that we see happening around us are the signs of Jesus Coming.  What does it mean to us that soon all this misery will end, and Jesus Christ will return? Should we fear this event? Why is Jesus warning us to be ready?  If we have accepted Jesus Christ and His sacrifice for us, if we have dedicated our hearts and our lives to him, we need not be afraid, no matter what happens, because when Jesus returns He will be coming to gather all His children to be with Him forever! It will be a glad and wonderful day indeed. This is wonderful news. Jesus tells us to be ready, and not only do we need to be ready, but we want to share this good news of the Gospel with everyone we know, so they too can accept Jesus Christ as their Savior and be ready for His coming. Scripture is from Matthew Chapter 24.

All scripture quoted has been taken from the New King James Version of the Holy Bible.
