A study By: Timothy M. Youngblood
Presented by: The Master's Table Web Site
There are many signs taught by Jesus and the prophets that show when Jesus’ is about to return, however many of the signs are about what will happen during the destruction of this evil system and that is what many ministers focus on. The question is what should we be looking for at this present time? I have found over the years that the many answers we need can come by way of what Jesus comments on but we also need some foundation first so before we look at what Jesus stated let’s go back and look at what mankind was doing before the flood and what God observed and what He stated in Gen 6:12-13. “So God looked upon the earth, and indeed it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way on the earth and God said to Noah, "The end of all flesh has come before Me, for the earth is filled with violence through them; and behold, I will destroy them with the earth.”
Most islands are volcanic and they must be imploded upon themselves in order to plug the mouth of the volcano that spews destructive lava. The Teutonic plates around the world that causes earthquakes will have their stress relieved by the power of the Almighty causing them to be triggered. The mountains must be brought low so the weather can become a beautiful constant that creates a spring-like atmosphere around the world. Hurricanes cannot exist unless the oceans are heated to a degree that causes hurricanes to form so re-construction of the earth will prevent that.
So as we continue to read we find that Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord and He had Noah build an Ark so Noah and his family would be saved along with all the creatures God led on the ark. After God destroyed all living creatures on earth except those on the Ark we find that the problem was not solved as we read concerning the Tower of Babel. In Gen 11:4-8 we find it recorded; “And they said, "Come, let us build ourselves a city, and a tower whose top is in the heavens; let us make a name for ourselves, lest we be scattered abroad over the face of the whole earth." But the LORD came down to see the city and the tower which the sons of men had built. And the LORD said, "Indeed the people are one and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do; now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them. Come, let Us go down and there confuse their language, that they may not understand one another's speech." So the LORD scattered them abroad from there over the face of all the earth, and they ceased building the city.”
Notice here that God stated …”Now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them.” The term “nothing” here in Hebrew is “henceforth” which is important to understand what God was saying because He understood that mankind would become even more corrupt than before the flood and to just continue to destroy them would not work because God understood it is the flesh that’s corrupt. These scriptures show that God knew they will be able to accomplish anything from now own because they could communicate and share ideas so He had to confound their language and scatter them around the world.
Many in the past could not truly understand this as God did because they had not understood what we see today with the computer and use of the internet. The reason the internet is so powerful is because it combines Commercial, Educational, Religious, Governmental, and Military networking that use the same system to operate around the world. It puts mankind back in the position he was before God confounded the language and scattered them and this is why the world will come together when the system is able to connect ALL Nations and those areas that Nations consider their responsibility.
The information above shows why God confounded the language and scattered the people around the world, however what other information about the FIRST SIGNS of the Last days can we find in the bible? It is recorded in Matt 24:32:34 that Jesus stated; "Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near. So you also, when you see all these things, know that it is near-- at the doors!”
Now we find here that Jesus gave understanding about how to know when the time is near and He did this right after He just explained to His disciples in all of Matt. 24 what was to come. If you want to understand what Jesus was referring to in Matt. 24 more thoroughly check out our study titled Revelation chapter Six vs. Matthew. 24. I would recommend you go look at that study because after understanding this you can truly know why Jesus stated that they should learn the parable from the fig tree. He was telling them they could know when these things will start and that the generation that is alive at this time will not pass away till ALL is finished. This does not mean as some teach that it will take a generation to complete the end time events explained in Revelation chapter six and Matthew chapter 24. It means that when it starts Jesus will make a short work of it or to say make it happen in a short time.
We find the apostle Paul also stating as recorded in Rom 9:28; “For He will finish the work and cut it short in righteousness, because the Lord will make a short work upon the earth." Also we find it recorded in Matt 24:22 that Jesus stated "And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect's sake those days will be shortened.”
Now Jesus gave us a very important clue and this is why I took the time to study the points above concerning the time before and after the flood and about the confounding of the language and how God viewed mankind as not only corrupt but unable to be righteous and what He did about it. Let’s read what is recorded that Jesus stated in Matt 24:36-39 "But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only, but as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. "For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.”
Notice that Jesus tied it all together with the statement; “so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.” Also terms like eating and drinking as used in the bible always denotes good times from bad times or time of famine to times of plenty. The fact that Jesus stated that in the last days which He laid out in Chapter 24 of Matthew they would be eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage; denotes great prosperity and when the flood came they were shocked because everything was going so well. Jesus using the time of Noah also reminds us (As shown above) that all the earth had become evil before the site of God. Notice the statement “And did not know until the flood came and took them all away.” And again very importantly Jesus states, “So also will the coming of the Son of Man be.”
So we have seen that Jesus gave several points to show what the general attitude and mood would be just before the coming of the Lord will be in the last days and how mankind would become so evil because nothing can be withheld from mankind because we can all communicate and share ideas. What is the cause of mankind becoming so corrupt that the world will have to be purged with fire? It starts with Tolerance and then apathy sets in.
Now that we have come to understand that mankind will become so evil that God will once more have to destroy most of mankind and much of the evil things mankind have devised by fire let’s truly introspect our own selves and see if we are going to be among those raised in spirit or left to burn to ashes which is the future for the wicked and the evil things mankind have devised through their new god science.
The world is fast moving into a mindset that right and wrong can be determined by their god science. I saw a program the other day on Fox news where people discussed what can or cannot be eaten and the end result was that Horse or Zebra along with dogs were good for food. Do you believe that society can just continue to set in church and believe all is well? Do you believe people can just blame their minister as they stand before the great white Throne being judged with the books of life and the books of death opened?
How bad will it get brethren? Have you considered what is just ahead of us? Sin has been around for thousands of years and God has been longsuffering towards us so what is ahead that will so anger Him to rain fire on the earth? What is coming that is so evil that total destruction of our cities, cars, trains, and computer systems is the only way to end the suffering mankind has brought on all living things! If you are under age I would ask you not read what I’m going to reveal next about our future because it may be too graphic.
I gave a sermon on “Apathy” a few years ago and hoped it would help wake some up however I have seen "Tolerance" and Apathy so strong not only in the churches but most of our Nation and even around the world. I as many others have also seen the fighting and riots taking place and we see Israel is a position that is very dire as their enemies surround them with the intent of total destruction and it seems the only way their destruction will not happen is for Israel to compromise. This last September we heard the Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu state in his speech at the U. N. September 28 2012 that the three religions need to come together in peace and He named them as The Jewish, Christian and Muslim religions which is the terminology of the New world Order. Also it is disturbing that the enemy of America and Israel President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad mentioned the term “New World Order" in his speech at the 2012 U.N. General Assembly saying the New World Order needed to emerge and then get away from years of what he called American bullying and domination.”
I do believe Israel is close to being taken over by the Gentile nations as we read in Revelation chapter 11 vs. 2. And that is part of the beginning of the FIRST SIGN OF THE LAST DAYS! The question is what must be put in place before this can happen? As I asked above…Just what will be so bad that God will become so disgusted with this world that He will raise His people to Him in a resurrection (The dead first and then those that are alive and follow the Lamb wherever He goes.) and then cause great sores and tremendous pain by way of the seven angels who pour the seven bowls of the wrath of God down before He will destroy all else with a great fire. (You might want to read our article titled "Battle of Armageddon.")
Yes the very first sign of these last days is the formation of the alliance between all Nations and religions then Satan will possess the man of perdition who will be so evil our minds cannot perceive it. He will be the liar of liars and he will be very charismatic and loved by millions of people as we read in Revelation chapter 13 however he will murder anyone that will not conform to his Laws and religion and they even must worship him as God. (See our article titled "Revelation 13.) Some say this could never happen however if mankind through the direction of Satan will do it once like we know happened during World War II they will do it again brethren and now is the time to consider what you are willing to give up because the fact is if some can’t give up Christ-mass, Easter, and the pagan cross as well as the worship of the pagan Sun god ray on Sunday morning than how in God’s Holy Name will they endure and not give in to the lust of the flesh as well as wanting to save themself? Many don't realize the reason thousands and thousands are gaining a good lifestyle today and will in the future is because the more we have the harder it will be to walk away. Am I saying you should live in poverty or not enjoy a good living now?
NO! that is NOT what I’m saying! What I’m saying is where is your HEART? That is what’s important now and so many are growing cold and at some point will become so lukewarm that they will not be able to give all they possess; even their lives for the Messiah and the wonderful message He brought. Remember Jesus stated that if you deny Him He will deny you before the Holy Father and the Holy angels. The reason Jesus stated this was to warn us in these last days that we MUST stay close to not only the Holy Father and Jesus with our whole hearts but we also must stay with the truth and be faithful to never teach or believe anything that is contrary to what Jesus brought and the apostles were faithful in teaching till death. So many around the world have been so suppressed by their religions for so long that when the chains are removed by the international laws using the term hate speech to cause the truth to be supressed these young people in this generation will not be able to control themselves at all. They will be deceived into a belief that they are saved regardless of their actions.
While millions are doing their own thing and living higher than ever many of the true called out Assembly of God will be imprisoned and even put to death for speaking out against the evil ungodly acts they see coming on all mankind! If we consider Sodom and Gomorrah and realize this coming system will be even more evil how do we continue to deny the warnings and allow ourselves to continue to follow along with this world? What is coming soon is the allowance of everything God states is evil brethren! What’s coming very soon is great Uncontrollable LUST for sex, food and drink, communication devices and lust for new things that entertain and help people forget responsibilities. Games that allow one to hunt down what will be considered criminals and believe me when I say those that follow the true gospel and the true Messiah will be outlaws. Yes brethren even orgies of games that will be designed to take many lives of God’s people as the prize. Remember Rome loved to watch people thrown into the den of hungry Lions? Remember the Holocaust and those people that sneered as many were starved and raped and many children were violently taken from their mothers and then having to watch thir babies split into by German soldiers?
Our law makers have opened a Pandora’s box that will be key in causing many people to be condemned and burned to ashes forever. They in their own lust or cowardice to stand for the noble acts this Nation was founded on will cause its very destruction. Our founding fathers were very close to the ideas of God's understanding of good laws for the people and by the people and as a result they set up our system under the principles that every person was endowed by their creator. Their hope was that the people would use these rights for the good of all thus bringing about blessings from God. Their other intent was that the people would teach and do those things written by God's own hand to Moses which is known as the Ten Commandments. Our founding fathers understood that to keep these Ten Commandments as a Nation along with the other points they made would insure our safety, prosperity and growth into the greatest Nation on earth. They were very wise and correct in their understanding, however what they missed was that the richer a family or people become the more they think they no longer need God and they start lusting for more power and thus corruption becomes the menu of the day.
However once evil people get their foot in the door and are placed in a powerful position of being viewed by the masses as Legitimate they will span out in ever place they can including the churches going under the name of Jesus the Messiah and as I have stated before to teach against them will be considered as hate speech. Thousands of ministers will not want to speak out against the coming system because they are part of it or they fear man more than God. The question is will some ministers stand up to the government and give up their tax exempt status and even go to prison or will they cave in and either ignore the subject of the coming detestable; loathsome sins or make excuses and accept this new life style that is here and even perform same sex marriages?
What I’m about to reveal to you in public may cause me legal concerns someday and if things happen the way I believe they will I could even be put in prison for breaking the laws that are now in place in some states and will become strong laws that carry stiff sentences in most all the world. Yes all they will have to do is an internet search for certain words or certain phrases to find what we are teaching. One of the very sins that will bring even more terrible horrors on God’s true people in the future will be from those that have "uncontrollable sexual desires" that cause them to be compelled (An irresistible force) to act out their desires regardless of who they harm. The fact is that Hitler, Saddam Hussein, as well as his sons and many other powerful men and women such as Bloody Mary down through history who starved and murdered thousands of their own people also had uncontrollable sexual desires and would kill the child after they raped and tormented them. The fact is brethren the coming system WILL make a deal with the Devil.
Yes the fact is that "uncontrollable sexual desires causes a development of hate and violence that runs deep in their souls and it is very important for you to never forget it. The emotions they feel and "their many compelled desires are never satisfied" and this is the reason we see more and more sex crimes of women and children being taken and raped then murdered in the most vile ways today. This is the reason sexual pleasure is becoming sought through physical pain and the pleasure of watching the victim die during the sex act and this my friend is going to get much worse as laws become more relaxed to satisfy the masses and when sexual pleasure becomes a multi-BILLION Dollar business like abortion is today and it will only become more demanded. Some may tell you that I'm over reacting, however I ask how many people would have believed abortion "without control" would become a multi-Billion Dollar business 75 years ago? There are also many Prophecies that back up what I'm warning about here. This is not according to me, but it is according to what God revealed to the prophets of old my friend! This information is from God and all I’m doing is relating that it is almost here and asking if you ministers and people that say you follow Jesus the Messiah will choose Him over this system that is coming?
Yes the Governments of this World will pass laws that will help enhance their uncontrollable sexual desires such as Pornography, Peek Shows, Prostitution made legal as in Los Vegas and even child sex laws (North American man/boy love association.) also known as N-A-M-B-L-A who are working to pass laws “reducing the age limit” of those that can consent to having sex with whomever they want is not far from being a reality.The shops that sell sex toys as well as having what has become known as “Passion parties” will become much more normal and the passing of laws concerning drugs are being legalized in many states at this very time (in the year 2013) The reason the government will do all these things, and much more, is so they can collect what will be called “Sin Tax” which we have now on alcohol and cigarettes. Yes many things like Pornography, Peek Shows, Prostitution already exist but they have not come out of the shadows but when they do, the world will be filled with every abomination mankind can even conceive. It is recorded in Rev 17:4 that the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the filthiness of her fornication.”
What many people don't understand is that drugs enhance these sexual pleasures and make people do things they never would, and drugs such as Cannabis; also known as Marijuana truly causes the mind to become open to Satanic thoughts. They will worship using satanic tools and orgies of many kinds causing the lust of the flesh desire higher and higher pleasures. Please believe me when I say they hate with a great passion those that will not give into their own personal desires which are in truth PURE LUST and when LUST become uncontrollable it also becomes a very, very deep hole my friend! They hate the words of God that condemn them and those that follow God's commands because they know in their hearts that eternal condemnation is on their heads unless they repent and the word of God in the book of Revelation states they would not repent!
Update July 2015
Now that the gays have the Government in their hands things will get much like San Francisco. Get out of the way because to try and stop what is coming will be like one person trying to stop a train going 300 mph. I have warned for many years that people who are of the true assembly of Jesus will think the world has gone insane and I see what many can't even at this point. There is no way for me to warn in a real way today because the things coming are not even conceivable in... their reality. One way I can in part describe it if people can even grasp the depth of it is A Tremendous "uncontrollable desire" for the LUST of every Conceivable desire of the flash. Couple this with them being numbered in the millions and in control of the power of Governments not only in America but much of Europe and Canada and in the book of Revelation it states that the whole world will follow after this system and the Saints shall be overcome.
It's also recorded in the New Testament "You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons; you cannot partake of the Lord's Table and of the table of demons. Or do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? Are we stronger than He?" 1 Cor 10:21-22.
We must get very close to the real Messiah and stand up with Him soon or run the real risk of being caught up in this FLOOD OF LUST that is going to sweep the earth! Evil spirits are at work and to continue in the system of hierarchical churches will trap many into this blood lust and cause many to lose salvation because this as I just described is what will stir the great Holy and righteous God to destory this system in His great fury! We must question the false ministers that are involved in the ecumenical movement and are false shepherds who are leading many into the coming system while "appearing" to be righteous. Many churches have accepted the many pagan gods already and that has made them weak as we see they are also accepting witch craft in many different forms such as Harry Potter and thinking there is good witches that do things for God.
Please heed this warning from the apostle Peter recorded in 2 Pet 2:1-3; “But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction. And many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed. By covetousness they will exploit you with deceptive words; for a long time their judgment has not been idle, and their destruction does not slumber.”
