14+ MAJOR End Time Signs. Are you ready to meet your Creator?
Have you ever wondered what will happen before the Rapture? The Bible tells us that there are events leading up to the Rapture, and there are some things we need to do before he comes.
As the time of Rapture gets closer, there is a sense of urgency in many Christians. What does it mean for us to be ready to stand before the King?
We should be reflecting on his teachings, repenting of our sins, living out our faith in him, and sharing the Gospel with others.
Ready or not, Jesus is coming back, and the Rapture is near at the doors! Here’s how to get ready for his return.
By the way, Rapture is an event spoken of in the Bible, where believers in the Lord Jesus Christ will be caught up to Heaven, while the world is going through 7 years of chaos.
Why Is The Return Of Jesus Important? And What Happens Before The Rapture Takes Place?
The Rapture of the church is the most important event in all the history, that will shortly come to pass.
It’s not just a story in a some movie… The Bible tells us that the Rapture will take place, and that we are living at the end of the end times.
If you’re a follower of Christ, then you might believe that Christ will come back to earth one day, but before that, Rapture will take place — and that’s never far from our minds.
Jesus says in Matthew 24:3–8, “As [Jesus] sat on the Mount of Olives opposite the temple, Peter and James and John and Andrew asked him privately, ‘Tell us, when will these things be, and what will be the sign when all these things are going to be fulfilled?
Jesus began to say to them, ‘Look out that nobody misleads you; for many will come in my name, saying, I am he, and shall mislead many. Do not go after them.’
So we know that there are signs that precede the Rapture, such as:
- increasing apostasy,
- Increasing earthquakes, volcanic eruptions,
- People loosing love for one another,
- Blood moon tetrads,
- September 23rd, 2017 Revelation 12 sign,
- Israel becomes a nation,
- Jews back in the land,
- The sign of Jerusalem being the most controversial piece of property on earth that would cause Armageddon,
- The sign of worldwide anti-Semitism.
- The sign of division within the land of Israel.
- Falling away from the Christian faith
- The Church being purified.
- Generation is only 70–80 years old, Israel is a nation for more than 70 years old, Jesus said this generation which seen all these things will see all things fulfilled.(Matthew 24:34)(Psalm 90:10)
Additional information of what is going to happen before the Rapture.
1. Rebellions against God will increase as people live lawless lives and pursue the things of the world.
2. There will be an apostasy in the Church as those who call themselves Christians will deny the true faith and follow false teachings and false leaders, like Balaam and Jezebel did.
3. There will be a great falling away from the Christian faith as many abandon their faith for worldly pleasures and pursuits.
4. Life will be as usual, people will continue to get married, etc… And then suddenly everything will change.
And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.
They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.
Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;
But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.
Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed. Luke 17
The Bible tells us that there are events leading up to the Rapture. The book of Luke, chapter 17, states that the Rapture will take place after the following things happen.
But we also know that there are some things we need to do before the Rapture and the second coming — such as repenting of sin and living out our faith.”
The Bible tells us in Luke 21:36:
Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy toescape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
In other words, why would the author tells us that we can escape these things if we couldn’t? That wouldn’t make sense, some people who believe in post tribulational(Rapture will take place at the end of tribulation) rapture say such things.
And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.”(John 14:3)
Jesus is coming again! And He wants to take us with Him. Jesus wants to prepare a place for you. He wants to give you a new life with Him that is full of joy and peace.
So what needs to happen before Jesus returns? The Bible tells us that Jesus’ return can’t happen until certain signs have happened.
When we will see the signs(listed above) of the end of this present age, we will know that we are in the last days.
The Bible teaches that there will be a resurrection of the righteous and the unrighteous:
Do not marvel at this; for the hour is coming in which all who are in the tombs shall hear His voice and come forth — those who have done good, to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of condemnation (John 5:28–29).
Before the 7 years of tribulation begins, there will occur an event called “rapture” where believers in the Lord Jesus Christ will be raptured to heaven, and then that starts the 7-year period of tribulation on earth.
The good news for Christians is this: You won’t be here when 7 tribulation will start, you will be in heaven with Jesus.
Don’t be left behind, get right with your Creator before it’s too late.
