For centuries, ministers have preached the message of Christ’s Return to earth. But is there compelling evidence that His Return is imminent? Extensive research persuades me that the answer to this question is, yes! And after preaching thousands of sermons for 25 years, my passion today concerns the eschatological prophecies of the Bible. I want to present you with three noteworthy prophecies that bear convincing testimony to the “signs of the times” and why our voice must rise to proclaim its message:
The Old Testament Prophets repeatedly foretold the dispersion of the Jews. Ezekiel said they would be scattered to the four corners of the world. History discloses an event called the Diaspora, in 70 AD, fulfilled this prophecy when Rome invaded Jerusalem, destroyed the Temple, and scattered the Jews into the world—133 nations in all! But the Prophets also predicted that Abraham’s seed would be regathered into their homeland. Ezekiel 38:8 says: “After many days you will be summoned; in the latter years you will come into the land that is restored from the sword . . . its people were brought out from the nations.” Both aspects of this astounding prophecy have transpired and should not be ignored—the Jews were scattered; the Jews have regathered! And since the early 20th Century, the world has witnessed a continuous wave of immigration of 5.1 million Jews returning to their homeland! Thus, we find the fulfillment of no inconsequential prophecy: “He will set up a banner for the nations, and will assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the Earth” (Isaiah 11:12).
Isaiah 66:8 says, “Who has heard such a thing? Who has seen such things? Shall the earth be made to give birth in one day? Or shall a nation be born at once? For as soon as Zion was in labor, she gave birth to her children.” Once Rome destroyed Jerusalem in 70 AD, the Israelis were without a sovereign presence in their homeland for the next 1900 years. But something remarkable occurred on May 14, 1948. At 4:00 pm that day, Israeli leader David Ben-Gurion proclaimed Israel’s Independence, Britain relinquished control of the Jewish homeland, and Israel regained its Statehood. For the first time since 586 BC, Israel was again a sovereign State according to Bible prophecy! And minutes after David Ben-Gurion proclaimed Israel’s Statehood, US President Harry Truman welcomed Israel into the global community of nations. After 1900 years of global absence, Israel the fig tree budded and reclaimed its Statehood; and nothing like this has happened in world history! Jesus said this would launch His prophetic time-clock of Endtime events and His Return would be near: “Truly I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place” (Matthew 21:29-32).
This lesser-known but highly significant prophecy comes with a four-fold advisement from the Lord when it unfolds. The Lord commands men to: (1) “see it, (3) recognize it, (3) consider it, and (4) gain insight.” Now for the Prophecy: The Lord says, “I will put the cedar in the wilderness, the acacia and the myrtle and the olive tree; I will place the juniper in the desert together with the box tree and the cypress, [Why?] (20) that they may see and recognize, and consider and gain insight as well, that the hand of the LORD has done this, and the Holy One of Israel created it” (Isaiah 41:19-20). The remarkable aspect of this “sign” is that Israel is 60% desert and when Isaiah uttered these words, 2800 years ago and long-before modern irrigation, it was unimaginable that this barren, desert, wasteland would become a forest! But today, the Israeli government documents that since the 1900s, it has planted, not just 100,000; 500,000; nor even a million trees. The Israelis have planted more than 240 million trees! This is why the Lord advised mankind to recognize the significance of this prophecy when it unfolds and (1) “see it, (3) recognize it, (3) consider it, and (4) gain insight.”
It’s evident that Word Revealed Ministries, more than ever, emphasizes Bible Prophecy. It’s the result of a memorable occasion (in 2010) when the Lord made it clear to devote myself to disclosing prophecies of the last days. Thus, I travel the nation conducting Discern the Days Prophecy Conferences that present insights into the prophecies of the Endtime. If you are interested in hosting a Prophecy Conference I encourage you to view the following two-minute video and email me by using the form attached after the video. All Conferences are conducted on a love-offering basis.
