I Have Told You Beforehand (CE37)

Mark 3:23  "But take heed; see, I have told you all things beforehand."

Our Lord Jesus told us the end time prophecies so that we can walk by faith (in His prophecies) and not by sight (what we see).

Prophecies Fulfilled so far:-

1993 Plo-Israel Peace Treaty started the Last Generation and also the 1st Seal with the deception of Jews and Christians worldwide.
1994 Rwandan Genocide fulfilled the 2nd Seal with half a million killed within 3 months.
1997 Since the Asian Financial Crisis or 3rd Seal, the gap in income has been growing rapidly yearly.
2010 The Arab Spring affected the whole Arab Muslim world with some developing into civil wars, such as in Iraq, Syria, Yemen, etc. fulfilling 'Nations against nation' in Mat 24:7

Prophecies to be fulfilled soon:-

World War 3 - the 4th Seal or 'kingdom against kingdom' with natural disasters, plagues, earthquakes, etc. killings 1/4 of mankind. During this time of extreme suffering, many will be saved because of the love and care of Christians and the divine provisions and healings. A time when the new converts are properly discipled to face the coming deceptions of the Antichrist or 5th Seal. This will fulfill the period of the beginning of sorrows in Mat 24:4-8.

The Period of Tribulation

After WW3 - the 5th Seal, a time when the whole world including unlearned Christians, will be deceived by the Antichrist and his false prophets (10 kings).

1. Rapid recovery from wars, earthquakes, tsunamis, etc.,
2. Everyone is secured and happy with good jobs, homes, etc.
3. Kings are godly, righteous, caring, humble, etc.,
4. 'One World Religion' is formed to prevent future religious wars,
5. 'Dome on the Rock' and Mosque removed by Muslims themselves,
6. Temple of God is being built so that God can rule this world,
7. Jerusalem is World's Capital housing headquarters of 'OWO'
8. King (Antichrist) is merciful giving rebels the chance to repent.
9. Rebels martyred resulting to the preaching of the gospel to all.

As the temple of God is being built, this will be a difficult time for Christians. Unless Christians are properly discipled according to our Lord Jesus teachings, they will not be able to overcome the deceptions of the Antichrist.

Mat 24:9  "Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake."

Because of the success of the great deceptions of the Antichrist, watchful and learned disciples will have to go underground to worship the Lord. The world will persecute and execute all Christians going against the doctrines of the 'One World Religion' which will deny the 'Word made flesh' or the divinity of our Lord Jesus and the power in the blood of the Lamb.

This is only the Tribulation, with the Great Tribulation yet to come

John 14:29  “And now I have told you before it comes, that when it does come to pass, you may believe."

Brethren, our Lord carefully taught His disciples giving great detail in Mat 24, so that we can enjoy His end time teachings. As each sign is being fulfilled, our faith in Him, His words and prophecies will slowly increase till we begin to look forward to the next sign to be fulfilled. By the time the temple of God is completed, we will be ready to face the Great Tribulation.
