Who has heard of such as this? Who has seen such things? Can a country be born in a day or a nation be delivered in an instant? Yet as soon as Zion was in labor, she gave birth to her children. -Isaiah 66:8 BSB
The beginning of the End Times started with the rebirth of the Jewish nation of Israel in 1948. No other known nation in history came into existence in a day, especially one whose people were being killed by their enemy, to wipe them out from the face of the earth (the holocaust). For the Antichrist to be here, there needs to be a Jewish State, see 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4.
Another sign that we are living in the End Times and the close return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is in the mass exodus of sound doctrine from professing Christian in favor of being accepted by the culture so that they won’t be persecuted and through false messages from false teachers. Many false Christs will arise and say that they are Jesus and deceive many. Those signs are in multiple places in the Scriptures. See below.
17 But they themselves have no root, and they remain for only a season. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, they quickly fall away. -Mark 4:17 BSB
5 For many will come in My name, claiming, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many…10 At that time many will fall away and will betray and hate one another, 11 and many false prophets will arise and mislead many. -Matthew 24:5, 10 BSB
Now the Spirit expressly states that in later times some will abandon the faith to follow deceitful spirits and the teachings of demons, 2 influenced by the hypocrisy of liars, whose consciences are seared with a hot iron. -1 Timothy 4:1-2 BSB
3 Let no one deceive you in any way, for it will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness—the son of destruction—is revealed. -2 Thessalonians 2:3 BSB
There are many more signs I can go into, but these make it clear what type of Christians we ought to be in a crooked and wicked generation. Godless leaders are plunging this world into deep darkness. They are getting it ready for the Antichrist.
