SIGNS OF THE TIMES!

And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?   (Mat 24:3 KJV)

I believe that we are living in the last days before the great coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. I am not looking for the ‘undertaker but for the upper taker’. No one knows the day or the hour but the Word is filled with the signs of His return.

    A. Israel is now a nation.

II. NATION WILL RISE AGAINST NATION, KINGDOM AGAINST KINGDOM.
- Mat 24:7 KJV For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

IV. THERE WILL BE PESTILENCES.
- Luke 21:11 KJV And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.
   A. We see this happening more and more.

- Luke 17:28 KJV Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;
- 2 Tim 3:2 KJV For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
- 2 Tim 3:4 KJV Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
   A. The morals of the nations keep declining.

VI. PEOPLE WILL BECOME:
- 2 Tim 3:1 KJV This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
- 2 Tim 3:2 KJV For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
- 2 Tim 3:3 KJV Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
- 2 Tim 3:4 KJV Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God:
- 2 Tim 3:5 KJV Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

A. SELFISH
B. LOVERS OF MONEY
C. BOASTFUL
D. PROUD
E. ABUSIVE
F. DSOBEDIENT TO THEIR PARENTS

H. WITHOUT LOVE
I. UNGRATEFUL

M. SLANDEROUS
N. WITHOUT SELF CONTROL

P. NOT LOVERS OF GOOD
Q. TREACHEROUS

VII. VIOLENCE AND CORRUPTION:
- Gen 6:11 KJV The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.
   A. Murder at every hand.

VIII. GOSPEL WILL BE PREACHED IN THE WHOLE WORLD.
- Mat 24:14 KJV 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.

A. This is the reason why my wife Marge and I have given our lives to world evangelism and have traveled and preached in over 125 countries these past 44 years. We want to bring Jesus back.
(See outline of ‘Five Reasons I Preach’ on our website. www.abundantlifecrusades.com.

- Mark 13:12 KJV Now the brother shall betray the brother to death, and the father the son; and children shall rise up against their parents, and shall cause them to be put to death.
   A. Never before, have we heard of so many murders within families.

X. HEAVEN AND EARTH WITH BE CONTAIMINATED.
- Isaiah 51:6 KJV Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look upon the earth beneath: for the heavens shall vanish away like smoke, and the earth shall wax old like a garment, and they that dwell therein shall die in like manner: but my salvation shall be for ever, and my righteousness shall not be abolished.
   A. All we hear is ‘global warming’ or ‘global freezing’.

XI. PEOPLE WILL LOVEROF ENTERTAINMENTS, MONEY MAKING AND BE CONSTRUCTION EVERY WHERE.
-
Luke 17:28 KJV Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;
   A. TV, Internet, MTV, Music, Films and Sports.

XII. TIME OF DECEIVING SPIRITS.
- 1 Tim 4:1 KJV Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
   A. This is why there are so many cults and false doctrines.

XIII. BLASPHEMERS OF GOD.
- 2 Tim 3:2 KJV For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, …….

- Mat 24:23 KJV Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.

XV. CHURCH WOULD BECOME LUKEWARM.
- Rev 3:16 KJV So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew thee out of my mouth.
   A. Many churches have substituted the Board Room for the Upper Room, The Board room works on problems but the Upper Room solved their problems.
   B. They now have soup suppers, tea parties and chicken dinners in place of the prayer meeting.
      1. They have in the mean time become as ‘weak as their tea’, ‘cold as their soup’ and as ‘dead as the chicken they eat’.
      2. God does us not to have the fireplace to heat our ‘Board Room’ but to have the fire of the Holy Spirit.

XVI. FAST TRANSPORTATION DEVELOPMENT.
- Dan 12:4 KJV But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.

- 1 Th 5:3 KJV For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
   A. There will be not peace until Jesus brings peace.
   B. I heard Billy Graham once say, “ The way you can bring world peace is to make peace with God first yourself.’

XVIII. THE NUMBER ‘666’ WILL BE REALVED.
- Rev 13:16 KJV And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

- Rev 13:18 KJV Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.
   A. Everything now has a bar code one it.
      1. Check the value of the two unmarked bars that starts ends and has it in the middle. It value is 6.
      2. It then looks like everything we buy or sell has bar code (number) on it.
