Closing In - By Daymond Duck - https://www.raptureready.com/2020/10/31/closing-in-by-daymond-duck/
The Bible teaches that we can see the day of our Lord’s return approaching.
It seems to me that the peace treaties in the Middle East, the opposition to those treaties by some of Israel’s enemies, the departure from the faith by Pope Francis, the attacks on freedom of religion and free speech, the lawlessness, and the increase in the frequency and intensity of natural disasters are sure signs that society is closing in on the Tribulation Period.
Below are some of the things that have recently taken place.
One, concerning peace in the Middle East, on Oct. 21, 2020, it was reported that U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman said, “There will be more countries that are in the Arab League that will normalize and make peace with Israel, I have no doubt it is a certainty. How many, in what order, I think everyone will have to wait and see.”
Two, On Oct. 23, 2020, Pres. Trump announced that Sudan has agreed to a peace treaty with Israel, and he added that “There are many, many more coming.”
This is not the covenant with many, but many are signing or preparing to sign a peace treaty, and it could be a major step toward the covenant with many.
Trump was asked if he will have a signing ceremony at the White House for Israel and Sudan like the one he had for the UAE and Bahrain and Israel.
He replied, “We will have them along with some other countries that you’ll be hearing about coming, probably simultaneously. Then ultimately, we’re going to have a big reunion at the end where everybody’s here and everybody’s gonna be signed. We expect Saudi Arabia is going to be one of those countries.”
Ultimately, there will be a reunion and signing for all (many) of the nations that have normalized relations with Israel.
This is beginning to sound like it could develop into the covenant with many.
One thing is sure, the Arabs are beginning to separate themselves from the Palestinians and to move closer to a peace treaty with Israel.
It is an enormous step forward in Bible Prophecy with major implications for the Rapture, the rise of Antichrist, the Tribulation Period and more.
Three, not all agree, but several well-known prophecy teachers believe Israel will get into a war with her neighbors called the Psalm 83 war.
The PA, Hamas and Hezbollah (some of Israel’s neighbors) are unhappy with the peace treaties that several Arab nations have signed with Israel.
Whether or not they resort to war to stop these treaties remains to be seen.
Four, concerning a departure from the faith, on Oct. 21, 2020, Pope Francis said, “Homosexual people have the right to be in a family. They are children of God. You can’t kick someone out of a family, nor make their life miserable for this. What we have to have is a civil union law; that way they are legally covered.”
His call for a law to legitimize deviant sexual behavior that the Bible calls an abomination and give it the same status as Biblical marriage between a man and a woman is a departure from Scripture and traditional Roman Catholic teachings.
If the Pope is an infallible man of God, wouldn’t you think he would stick to what the Bible says?
Five, on Oct. 20, 2020, it was reported that YouTube has admitted that it is removing videos (more than 200,000 since Feb. of this year) that disagree with World Health Organization (WHO) claims.
The WHO has been wrong on several issues, but they are trying to silence anyone that disagrees with what they say, and they want to tell U.S. citizens and the Church what to do (wear masks, limit attendance at services, etc.).
This is censorship and a denial of free speech, not science.
Six, concerning lawlessness (rioting, looting, burning, etc.), there have been several articles stating that a Trump victory will unleash hell on earth.
Several groups are threatening violence.
One group called Shut Down DC has posted a website message announcing plans to hit the streets between Nov. 4-7 proclaiming that Trump’s victory is an attempted coup against Biden.
The group has also announced that it plans to confront members of Congress on Nov. 8-11 as they return to Washington after the election.
Businesses near the White House have already started boarding up their windows.
Be aware that violence is coming if Trump wins, and it is part of a continuing effort to remove him from office.
This may be why Hillary Clinton advised Biden not to concede the election.
Seven, concerning natural disasters, on Oct. 23, 2020, it was reported that wildfires in California and Colorado have burned more acres than any year in their history, and approaching 60-80 mph winds with gusts up to 100 mph will grow the fires.
In California, about 100,000 people have been driven out of their homes, and about 1,000,000 have had their electricity turned off.
In Colorado, seventy-seven per cent of the state is under an extreme drought.
In Potomac, Montana, on Oct. 25, 2020, the temperature hit twenty-nine degrees below zero (a record).
Spokane, Washington, is experiencing the snowiest October in more than 125 years.
On Oct. 26, 2020, it was reported that tropical storm Zeta will turn into a hurricane that will hit the Gulf Coast on Oct. 28, 2020.
Zeta is the eleventh Atlantic hurricane in 2020, the third most hurricanes ever in one year, the fifth hurricane to hit the Gulf Coast in 2020, and the Hurricane season is not over.
Eight, concerning pestilence, on Oct. 23, 2020, the U.S. had the highest one-day total of new Covid cases ever (83,000 new cases in one day).
Pres. Trump said it is because the U.S. is testing more people, not because Covid is getting worse.
Nine, several readers have asked me who I think will win the election.
I don’t know the answer to that.
But I will view a Biden victory as a sign that God has removed His hand of protection from America and that world government, etc. are going to move forward even faster.
I will view a Trump victory as a sign that God is going to show grace to America a little longer.
Finally, our Christian faith should guide us all of the time, not just part of the time.
What we do should be based on the Scriptures even when we are in the voting booth.
The Scriptures are very clear about abortion, same-sex marriage, rioting, looting, burning buildings, Israel and more.
Do you want to go to heaven? Know that God loves you, and if you have not done so, sincerely admit that you are a sinner; believe that Jesus is the virgin born, sinless Son of God who died for the sins of the world, was buried and raised from the dead; ask Him to forgive your sins, cleanse you, come into your heart and be your Saviour; then tell someone that you have done this.
