Last week, I posted Part 1 of this three-part series titled “15 Signs That We Are in the End Times” based on a recent video by Jan Markell of Olive Tree Ministries. Today, I will list the next five signs for your consideration.
SIGN #6: Increasing Talk about Rebuilding the Third Temple. Plans for rebuilding the Third Temple are well underway in Israel. The Temple Institute, the official organ for rebuilding the Third Temple, reports that the sacred vessels have been restored, the priestly garments have been made, and the stone altar (made in accordance with Torah law) is ready for transport to the Temple Mount. Keep your eye on new developments as we hear more and more talk of the Third Temple in the days and weeks ahead.
Sign #7: The Rapid Development of “Mark of the Beast” Technology. Have you noticed the increasing number of reports on inserting microchips into humans, or the growing use of artificial intelligence (AI), or the radical cultural and ideological shift to “data control” as the power struggle of the future? I urge you to listen to this talk given by Yuval Noah Harari at the 2018 World Economic Forum in Davos. Harari is an atheist and an Oxford-educated Professor of History at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. The information he discusses points to the growing move toward a one-world government that will control the world’s population through control of personal data.
Sign #8: The Prophetic Alignment of Nations in the Middle East. Day by day, we are witnessing the clear aligning of nations in the Middle East according to the prophesies of Ezekiel 38. Russia, Turkey, and Iran are already aligning with one another. At some point, they will be joined by Libya (Put) and Ethiopia (Cush). Keep an eye on this alignment of nations that will, according to Bible prophecy, precipitate major warfare in the Middle East.
Sign #9: The World’s Growing Longing for a Leader to Solve Its Insurmountable Problems. As the world’s problems become seemingly more and more unsolveable, the world as a whole is looking for that one person who can provide solutions. This scenario is setting the stage for global acceptance of the AntiChrist, the charismatic world leader who will seemingly bring peace out of chaos. Listen to what Henry Spaak, former Secretary General of NATO and one of the architects of the European Union, said several years ago: “We do not want another committee, we have too many already. What we want is a man of sufficient stature to hold the allegiance of all people, and to lift us out of the economic morass into which we are sinking. Send us such a man, and be he god or devil, we will receive him.” Spaak’s ominous words ring more loudly today than ever before.
Sign #10: A Pope of Non-Traditional Teachings. Needless to say, many Christians are troubled by some of the seemingly heretical teachings of Pope Francis. Even devout Catholics are beginning to question their Pontiff. He is preaching doctrine that is blatantly unscriptural and is seemingly promoting a one-world religion as prophesied in the Bible. Some even think Francis may be the False Prophet of the Book of Revelation. Keep your eyes on what is coming out of the Vatican.
Next week, Lord willing, I will discuss the last five critical signs of the end times. To be sure you don’t miss them, you may wish to subscribe to this blog at http://www.networkedblogs.com/blog/maryanndiorioblog or through the feed of your choice.
