"Where There Is No Vision The People Perish," Proverbs 29:18
THE COMING OF JESUS CHRIST
In the Bible both the Old and New Testament contain prophecies about the events that will preceed the second coming of Jesus
Christ. Some of them were literally fulfilled in 70 A. D. when Titus and the Roman legions captured Jerusalem. Josephus, the Hebrew
historian, describes the taking of the city in some detail in his book Wars of the Hebrew, Books V and VI. After A.D. 70, Jerusalem
was trodden down of the Gentiles (Luke. 21:24).
Some think the recent return of certain groups of Jews to Israel and their control of Jerusalem marks the end of the Gentile control
and the fulfillment of this prophetic word. Until the period of Gentile triumph ends in God’s good time, Jerusalem was to be trodden
down by the Gentiles for this period of time. This implies that an end will come when Jerusalem will be restored to the Abrahamic
Hebrews. Others believe this prophecy remains to be fulfilled at the end of the age.
Those who hold the later view usually tie the words of Daniel, and Jesus to those of Paul in 2 Thess. 2:8-12, in which he speaks
about the man of sin. Paul definitely relates it to the second coming of Jesus. However, Other prophecies await fulfillment. The Book
of Revelation contains much prophecy, which yet remains to be fulfilled.
The Door Signs by Jesus Christ
In this passage Jesus’ disciples asked him two questions:
(1) When shall these things be? i.e., the destruction of the temple buildings;
(2) What shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?
Jesus replied by saying: “Take heed that no man deceive you.“ In other words, do not let anyone tell you otherwise on what I am
about to tell you. You are responsible for your learning, be prudent and be certain to search every spirit if it is of God. For many shall
come in my name, saying I am Christ, I am a minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ or that Jesus sent them, but most of these will be
self appointed and they will misrepresent my Word. Many would take advantage of your love for me and for the things of God and
will try to mislead you. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you (2Pet. 2:3). You must
therefore, strive to search out and learn my true Word and keep them.
You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, and nations shall rise against each other: but I tell you these things now so you know
what is to come. Some of these upheavals will come as a result of God’s judgment of the sins of nations. As nations shall be used to
judge the sins of other nations.
There will be a renewed wave of planned persecutions against the believers in all nations, but this will be the beginning of the evil
that shall come upon the people of the earth. Be careful that you do not become one of those who would be offended during this
period of persecution, thinking, why is God allowing these things to happen, and then fall into the temptation of rejecting your
salvation in Christ Jesus.
And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.” One of the door signs is the emergence of the prophets of the antichrist
in our time. Some of these false prophets will come in several different forms: some as university professors, deceiving priests and
Popes , false preachers, pastors, evangelists; psychiatrists, psychologists, medical doctors, you are all gods speakers at seminars,
speakers on mysteries of the ancient religions and Self-Esteem Project/Quest. By hordes of so-called shamans, gurus, channelers,

burning candles and incense, drawing holy circles, squares and triangles; selling talismans and charms, veneration of the dead, astral

ecstasy through tantra, gaining power, claiming healing by means of crystals; theorizing on the Cabala, practicing Norse magic, Celtic

These false prophets will be instrumental in deceiving and drafting in the masses into the several Luciferian brotherhood
organizations that are already in place, by means of false teachings, miracles and signs, teaching slaying in the spirit, system change

until the day of their rapture will be redeemed. Click here to view the antichrist network.
"And because iniquity and abomination shall abound the love of many shall wax cold." The falling away from the faith by so many
believers, probably in attempting to save their material lives, and some in pursuit of material things as iniquity abounds. The love of
many who call me Lord today, will grow cold during the end times and during the great persecution. But all, at one time, had love and
were hot in their affection for the things of God. No one can become cold who has not first been hot, and no one can lose love who
has not first had it. This is a serious warning to believers as the end of the age approaches (Matt. 24:12,13).
Finally, the Lord relates his coming to the preaching of the gospel to all the world. So long as Jesus tarries, the Great Commission has
not been fully carried out. The call to the Church to preach the Good News of Jesus Christ to all the world cannot be more clearer in
“This generation shall not pass till all these things be fulfilled.” (Matt. 24:34). In the sense that Jerusalem was destroyed in A. D. 70,
Christ’s contemporaries did live to the fulfillment of that prophecy 40 years later. However, in the later days the generation refers to
those living at the time of the beginning of the signs characterizing the end times—they will live to see the fulfillment of the
This illustration teaches believers that they must be watchful and ready for the coming of the Lord. The foolish virgins were careless,
assuming they had plenty of time to get ready when the event approached.
