The End Times


 

 Throughout scripture are prophecies concerning the end times. They are there to warn us of the coming disasters that will take place because of the wickedness of the world. They are there to turn us toward God before it is too late, not just for us but for our soul. Our body is mortal, but our soul is eternal. It is our decision, where we want to spend eternity, and we make that decision through faith, or doubt, through evil actions, or the bearing of good fruit through the Spirit that testifies that Jesus is Lord. In the end, our actions and choices are what pave the road that we walk on in the direction of good or evil, to receive our reward or punishment.

 


Psalms 98:9

9 Let them sing before the Lord, for he comes to judge the earth. He will judge the world in righteousness and the people fairly. 

 


Ezekiel 38:18-23

18 Now on that day, the day when Gog comes against the land of Israel”- this is the declaration of the Lord God- “My wrath will flare up. 19 I swear in My zeal and fiery rage. On that day there will be a great earthquake in the land of Israel. 20 The fish of the sea, the birds of the sky, the animals of the field, every creature that crawls on the ground, and every human being on the face of the earth will tremble before Me. The mountains will be thrown down, the cliffs will collapse, and every wall will fall to the ground. 21 I will call for a sword against him on all my mountains“-the declaration of the Lord God-”-and every man’s sword will be against his brother. 22I will execute judgment on him with plague and bloodshed. I will pour out torrential rain, hailstones, fire and brimstone on him, as well as his troops and the many peoples who are with him. 23 I will display My greatness and holiness and will reveal Myself in the sight of many nations. Then they will know that I am the Lord.

(This is a vivid depiction of the kinds of horrors that the Lord will punish the Earth with. There have always been earthquakes, hurricanes, volcanoes, tornadoes, etc. It is made clear that these things will happen at once (or in sequence), and excessively across the Earth in a way that we will know that it is not normal with mother nature.)


Mathew 13:24-43

24 He presented another parable to them: “The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a man who sowed good seed in his field. 25 But while people were sleeping, his enemy came, sowed weeds among the wheat, and left. 26 When the plants sprouted and produced grain, then the weeds also appeared. 27 The landowner’s slaves came to him and said, ‘ Master, didn’t you sow good seed in your field? Then where did the weeds come from?’ 28 “ ‘An enemy did this!’ he told them. “ ‘So, do you want us to go and gather them up?’ the slaves asked him. 29 “ ‘ No, he said. ‘When you gather up the weeds you might also uproot the wheat with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest. At harvest time I’ll tell the reapers: Gather the weeds first and tie them in bundles to burn them, but store the wheat in my barn.’ ” 36 Then He dismissed the crowds and went into the house. His disciples approached Him and said, “Explain the parable of the weeds in the field to us.” 37 He replied: “The one who sows the good seed is the Son of Man; 38 the field is the world; and the good seed-there are the sons of the kingdom. The weeds are the sons of the evil one, and 39 the enemy who sowed them is the devil. The harvest is the end of the age, and the harvesters are the angels. 40 Therefore just as the weeds are gathered and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of the age. 41 The Son of Man will send out His angels, and they will gather from His kingdom everything that causes sin and those guilty of lawlessness. 42 They will throw them into the blazing furnace where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 43 Then the righteous will shine like the sun in their Father’s kingdom. Anyone who has ears should listen. 

 


Mathew 13:47-50

47 “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a large net thrown into the sea. It collected every kind of fish, 48 and when it was full, they dragged it ashore, sat down, and gathered the good fish into containers, but threw out the worthless ones. 49 So it will be at the end of the age. The angels will go out, separate the evil people from the righteous, 50 and throw them into the blazing furnace. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 

 


Mathew 16:27

27For the Son of Man is going to come with His angels in the glory of His Father, and then He will reward each according to what he has done.

(In Matthew 13:2-43, Matthew 13:47-50, and Matthew 16:27 Jesus illustrates the roles that angels will play in the end times. They act as the ones who will gather the good and wicked people of the world. They will also execute judgment, pouring out Gods wrath on the world.) 


Mathew 24:1-51

1 As Jesus left and was going out of the temple complex, His disciples came up and called His attention to the temple buildings. 2 Then He replied to them, “Don’t you see all these things? I assure you: Not one stone will be left on; everyone will be thrown down!” 3 While He was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples approached Him privately and said, “Tell us, when will these things happen? And what is the sign of your coming and the end of the age?”4 Then Jesus replied to them: “Watch out that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Messiah, and they will deceive many. 6 You are going to hear of many wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, because these things must take place, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these events are the beginning of birth pains. 9 “Then they will hand you over for persecution, and they will kill you. You will be hated by all the nations because of My name. 10 Then many will take offense, betray one another and hate one another. 11 Many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. 12 Because lawlessness will multiply, the love of many will grow cold. 13 But the one who endures to the end will be delivered. 14 This good news of the kingdom will be proclaimed in all the world as a testimony to all nations. And then the end will come. 15 “So when you see the abomination that causes desolation, spoken of by the prophet Daniel, standing in the holy place” (let the reader understand), 16 “then those in Judea must flee to the mountains! 17 A man on the housetop must not come down to get things out of his house. 18 And a man in the field must not go back to get his clothes. 19 Woe to pregnant women and nursing mothers in those days! 20 Pray that your escape may not be in winter or on a Sabbath. 21 For at that time there will be great tribulation, the kind that hasn’t taken place from the beginning of the world until now and never will again! 22 If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive, but for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened.

23 “If anyone tells you then, ‘Look, here is the Messiah!’ or, ‘Over here!’ do not believe it! 24 False messiahs and false prophets will arise and perform great signs and wonders to lead astray, if possible, even the elect. 25 Take note: I have told you in advance. 26 So if they tell you, ‘Look, He’s in the wilderness! don't go out; ‘Look, He’s in the inner rooms!’ do not believe it. 27 For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes as far as the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. 28 Wherever the carcass is, there the vultures will gather. 29 “Immediately after the tribulation of those days: The sun will be darkened, and the moon will not shed its light; the stars will fall from the sky, and the celestial powers will be shaken. 30 “Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and then all the peoples 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 He will send out His angels with a loud trumpet, and they will gather His elect from the four winds, from one end of the sky to the other.  32 “Now learn this parable from the fig tree: As soon as its branch becomes tender and it sprouts leaves, you know that summer is near. 33 In the same way, when you see all these things, recognize that He is near-at the door! 34 I assure you: This generation will certainly not pass away until all these things take place. 35 Heaven and Earth will pass away but my words will never pass away.

36 “Now concerning that day and hour no one knows-neither the angels in heaven, nor the Son-except the Father only. 37 As for the days of Noah were, so the coming of the Son of Man will be. 38 For in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day Noah boarded the ark. 39 They didn’t know until the flood came and swept them all away. So this is the way the coming of the Son of Man will be: 40 Then two men will be in the field: one will be taken and one left. 41 Two women will be grinding at the mill: one will be taken and one left. 42 Therefore be alert, since you don’t know what day the lord is coming. 43 But know this: If the homeowner had known what time the thief was coming, he would have stayed alert and not let his house be broken into. 44 This is why you also must be ready, because the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.45 “Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his master has put in charge of his household, to give them food at the proper time? 46 That servant whose master finds him working when he comes will be rewarded. 47 I assure you: He will put him in charge of all his possessions. 48 But if that wicked servant says in his heart, ‘My master is delayed,’ 49 and starts to beat his fellow slaves, and eats and drinks with drunkards, 50 That servant's master will come on a day he does not expect and at an hour he does not know. 51 He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the hypocrites. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 

(Many believe that there will be a "rapture" before the great tribulation. Some believe that there will be one before the tribulation, and after, so that God's chosen do not have to suffer it. Jesus says nothing of a rapture. In fact the word "rapture" is never even used. Jesus said that we will be lifted up into the clouds with Him. In other words there will be a great deliverance, but only after the great tribulation. Never before has God delivered all of His people from suffering persecution or trial, instead we are to bear them as a trophy. Everyone is destined to die, and after that we will receive our reward in Heaven. Those who hope for a "rapture" before the great disaster may find themselves unprepared for the great disaster if they should have to stand through it.)


Mathew 25:31-46

31 “When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. 32 All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, just as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33 He will put the sheep on His right, and the goats on the left. 34 Then the King will say to those on His right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.35 For I was hungry and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; 36 I was naked and you clothed me; I was sick and you took care of me; I was in prison and you visited Me.’  37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You something to drink? 38 When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or without clothes and clothe You? 39 When did we see You sick, or in prison, and visit You?’ 40 “And the King will answer them, ‘I assure you: Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for Me.’ 41 Then He will say to those on the left, ‘Depart from Me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the Devil and his angels! 42 For I was hungry and you gave Me nothing to eat; I was thirsty and You gave Me nothing to drink; 43 I was a stranger and you didn't take Me in; I was naked and you didn't clothe Me, sick and in prison and you didn't take care of Me.’ 44 “Then they too will answer, hungry, or thirsty, or a stranger, or without clothes, or sick, or in prison, and not help You? 45 “Then He will answer them, ‘I assure you: Whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for Me either.’ 46 “And they will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.” 

(So many people pass up helping others. Sometimes its out of fear, other times its because of ignorance or stubbornness. Remember that we are suppose to love and pray for others even if they are our enemy. Next time that you see someone in need, remember what will happen to those on the Lord's left (to those who do not help others). True faith is proven by action.)

 


John 11:23-27

23 “Your brother will rise again,”Jesus told her. 24 Martha said, “I know that he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day.” 25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in Me, even if he dies, will live. 26 Everyone who lives and believes in Me will never die. Do you believe this?” 27 “Yes, Lord, “she told Him, “I believe You are the Messiah, the Son of God, who was to come into the world.” 

(Jesus makes it clear that there is lie after death. Many Jews in Jesus's time believed that there was no life until the resurrection. Jesus also makes this clear in another passage in scripture when he says that it is written the God is the God of Abraham, of Isaac, and of Jacob. He then states that his father is not God of the dead but of the living, meaning that there is life after death.)

 


Acts 1:7-8

7 He said to them, “It is not for you to know times and periods that the Father has set by His own authority. 8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

(It is a good thing that we do not know when the end will come. If we did, many people would live a sinful life to the fullest, only to repent at the very end. We do not need to worry when the end will come, because everyone dies at a different time. Even if you knew that the end of the world was near, you may still die tomorrow. So live every day for the Lord as if it were your last.)

 


Acts 1:10-11

10 While He was going, they were gazing into heaven, and suddenly two men in white clothes stood by them.

11 They said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking up into heaven? This Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come in the same way you have seen Him going into heaven.”

(We will see Jesus coming down when he comes. Jesus states in Matthew 24:30 "-And they will see the son of man coming on the clouds." And in Matthew 24:27 he says, "For as lightning that comes from the east is visible even in the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man." So when Jesus does come back, everyone around the world will see him and his angels coming.)


1 Corinthians 15:24-28

24 Then the end will come, when he hands over the kingdom to God the Father after he has destroyed all dominion, authority and power, 25 For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. 26 The last enemy to be destroyed is death. 27 For he “has put everything under his feet.” Now when it says that “everything” has been put under him, it is clear that this does not include God himself, who put everything under Christ. 28 When he has done this, then the Son himself will be made subject to him who put everything under him, so that God may be all in all.


1 Corinthians 15:51-52

51 Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed-52 in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.

( In Matthew 24:30-31 when Jesus comes back, He says that His angels will be sent out with a loud trumpet blast to gather His "elect", meaning His chosen, His saints, or those who remained in Him and endured till the end. Even through the tribulation.) 


Hebrews 9:27-28

27 Just as man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgment, 28 so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many people; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.

(Man is destined to die once. The only two men recorded in scripture that have never died were Enoch and Elijah. It is prophesied that Elijah will return before the Messiah comes. When asked about this Jesus said that Elijah did come, and that he will come. He spoke  of two comings. The first was John the Baptist. The second will be before Jesus returns again.)

 


Hebrews 12:26-27

26 At that time his voice shook the earth, but now he has promised, “Once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens.” 27 The words “ once more” indicate the removing of what can be shaken-that is, created things-so that what cannot be shaken may remain.

 


2 Peter 3:3-13

3 First of all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires. 4 They will say, “Where is this ‘coming’ he promised? Ever since our fathers died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation.” 5 But they deliberately forget that long ago by God’s word the heavens existed and the earth was formed out of water and by water. 6 By these waters also the world of that time was deluged and destroyed. 7 By the same word the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men. 8 But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. 9 The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. 10 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything in it will be laid bare. 11 Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly lives 12 as you look forward to the day of God and speed its coming. That day will bring about the destruction of the heavens by fire, and the elements will melt in the heat. 13 But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, the home of righteousness.

 


  Revelation 16:8-21

8 The fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun. He was given the power to burn people with fire.9 And people were burned by the intense heat. So they blasphemed the name of God who had the power over these plagues, and they did not repent and give Him glory.

10 The fifth angel poured out his bowl on the thrown of the beast, and his kingdom was plunged into darkness. People gnawed their tongues from pain 11 and blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, yet they did not repent of their actions.

12 The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up to prepare the way for the kings from the east. 13 Then I saw three unclean spirits like frogs coming from the dragon’s mouth of the false prophet. 14 For they are spirits of demons performing signs, who travel to the kings of the whole world to assemble them for the battle of the great day of God, the Almighty.

15 “Look, I am coming like a thief. Blessed is the one who is alert and remains clothed so that they may not go naked, and they see his shame.” 16 So they assembled them at the place called in Hebrew Armageddon.17 Then the seventh poured out his bowl into the air, and a loud voice came out of the sanctuary, from the throne, saying, “It is done!” 18 There were lightning’s, rumblings, and thunders. And a severe earthquake occurred like no other since man has been on earth- so great was the quake. 19 The great city split into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell. Babylon the great was remembered in God’s presence; He gave her a cup filled with wine of His fierce anger. 20 Every island fled, and the mountains disappeared. 21 Enormous hailstones, each weighing about 100 pounds, fell from heaven on the people, and they blasphemed God for the plague of hail because that plague was extremely severe.

(Even after all these plagues, no one repents or turns toward God for help. If there is one thing that has stayed the same through time, it is that man is stubborn. Because of his pride, man will refuse to look to a friend, a neighbor, or God for help. Mans ego refuses him to admit the truth, that he is wrong. People generally believe that they are good, but the truth is that people generally want to do good, but the majority does what is selfish.)

 

( The "end of the world" has been prophesied and foretold about in almost every major and minor religion. God will make himself evident ultimately by displaying His wrath against wickedness.) 


Revelation 20:7-10

7 When the 1,000 years are completed, Satan will be released from his prison 8 and will go out and deceive the nations at the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them for battle. Their number is like the sand of the sea. 9 They came up over the surface of the earth and surrounded the encampment of the saints, the beloved city. Then the fire came down from heaven and consumed them. 10 The Devil who deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur where the beast and the false prophet are, and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.

(Some great nation or an alliance of nations will gather against the Lords chosen. The nations that form an alliance will be tricked by  the Devil and his false prophet to fight against the Lord's chosen. If the devil uses a "prophet", then these people that are tricked may have the same religion in common. The devil may use an opposing religion to fight against God's people.)
