I am convinced that we are living in the last days based on the preponderance of evidence that lines up with the signs of the times as outlined in the Scriptures.
There are many key indicators that we are living in the last days. The existence of a global pariah state called “Israel.” The moral collapse of Western Christendom. The rise of a global economy, a global government and a global religion.
Earthquakes, famines, wars, pestilences, strange signs in the sun moon and stars, the global warming debate, the decline of Church influence in world affairs; the absence of any entity resembling America during the Tribulation.
The unification of Europe, Russia, Iran, the developing anti-Israel alliances, the ascendant Kings of the East, the disgruntled Kings of the South, the total indifference to the world-wide media’s pro-Marxist propaganda machine, the delusional status of significant portions of the population – all these are key indicators of the approach of what Jeremiah called, “The time of Jacob’s Trouble” and Christians call the Tribulation.
The preponderance of evidence pointing to this being the time of the end is overwhelming, and to my mind, beyond a reasonable doubt.
And to show, by a preponderance of evidence, that the time is short, our mission remains unfulfilled and our obligation undiminished. I believe with all my soul that we are living in the last days.
I believe, from the preponderance of evidence, both interpretative and objective, that the world stands on the brink of the Tribulation Period.
The preponderance of evidence supports the view that the only thing restraining unrestricted evil in the world today is the presence of the Church. The Apostle Paul’s statement that the antichrist won’t be revealed until after the Restrainer is ‘taken out of the way’ is powerful evidence supporting a pre-Trib Rapture.
But doctrine is infallible – interpretation is not. The purpose for Bible prophecy in the last days is to provide a preponderance of evidence that the Lord is preparing for His return.
That is not to say I have any doubt whatever about what I believe to be the truth or I would keep my view to myself until I was sure.
But my being certain is not the same as “Thus sayeth the Lord.” On issues not touching salvation, reasonable people can agree to disagree agreeably.
The mission isn’t to proclaim when He is coming. It is to proclaim that He is coming. And He is coming soon.
Even if it does sometimes sound like a broken record.
