The Time Of The End Is Upon Us…
For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. —Matthew 24:21
North Korea threatens the United States with Thermonuclear weapons. Texas experiences the most severe natural disaster in U.S. history. Florida encounters the strongest Atlantic Hurricane in history. Los Angeles endures the most destructive wildfire ever to occur. The United States sees its first Total Solar Eclipse in 100 years. A series of Blood Moon’s on key prophetic days that many Biblical Scholars see as significant for the nation of Israel and the return of Messiah. The conjunction of the Kingly Planet Jupiter with the Constellations Virgo and Leo in what some assert as a sign that something profound is about to take place with the nation of Israel. Others are warning that the return of Jesus may take place in the near future as a result of all these “signs.”
The Bible describes a period of history called “The Great Tribulation,” in which nearly two-thirds of the people of earth will die by a series of twenty-one judgements. The Book of Revelation begins its description of these events by seven seal judgements at chapter six. These are followed by the seven trumpet judgments and finishes with seven bowl judgments.

What are the signs of Jesus’ return and the end of the age?
Jesus was very specific in telling us what to look for in determining the end of this present world. For the time being, God’s timeline is focused on the salvation of people. God is waiting to give time for people to find Jesus, receive Him and be saved. God’s Spirit will not always strive with us forever. He has appointed a time when His Grace will run out and the end will come. For 2,000 years we have all seen God’s Grace in action, being patient with a world that denies God, rejects Christ, and is increasingly becoming more violent and evil.

As chapter six of the book of Revelation begins, we see Jesus take a scroll from the right hand of the Father, who is sitting on the throne of God in heaven. All contracts in ancient Israel which deal with titles for property, had a clause for the redemption of that property. Upon its redemption, the seals of the contract are are broken one at a time and the one who is coming to redeem the land, will fulfill each of the terms that are specified. In regard to the earth and her redemption, there are twenty-one judgements that will take place. Seven Seals, Seven Trumpets, Seven Bowls. Each of these successive judgments becomes more severe than the one previous.
By His death and resurrection, Jesus has already meant all of the terms of redemption for the earth, In the sixth chapter of the book of Revelation, Jesus opens each of the seven seals and allows the particular events that are described to take place.

Current tensions in Israel over the Temple Mount that began on September 13, 2015, during the Feast of Rosh Hashanah, may be a precursor to the rebuilding of the third Temple at that location.
In order for the prophecy of Daniel’s 70th week to be fulfilled, this Temple must be built in the first three years of the seven year Tribulation Period. For a long time it has been a mystery how this could be possible, given that Arab leaders would seemingly never permit such an event.

Residing on the Temple Mount today is the holy Muslim site of the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Just north of the Mosque, also called “The Dome of the Rock,” is an area that is the precise location of the second temple that was destroyed by Titus in 70 A.D., in direct fulfillment of Jesus prophecy that “not one stone shall be left upon another.” This will be the location of the Third Temple.
