Signs Of The End Of The End (MA01)

Mat 24:3-4  Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, "Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?" And Jesus answered and said to them: "Take heed that no one deceives you."

At the turn of the last decade before the end of the Millennium when some Christians were expecting the Lord to come back, suddenly Iraq attacked and then annexed Kuwait in August 1990, causing US and the collision forces of UN to liberate Kuwait by March 1991. At that time there were more than 25 serious civil wars or intrusions worldwide. This war kept the Dispensationalist on track of Rapture by end of the Millennium. Our Lord warned that the first sign of end time are false Christs and not wars.

In 1993 US President Clinton officiated the signing of the PLO-Israel Peace Treaty, which happened to be seven years before the end of the Millennium. Immediately after this peace treaty, a huge earthquake in India killed tens of thousands followed by the huge earthquake in Los Angeles causing more than US$ 4-15B damage. These events kept Christians to be godly for fear of missing Rapture.

Until the end of the Millennium, Christians in general were godly and obedient to God's word.
When Rapture was no event, but the destruction of the World Trade Centre in September 2001 and the subsequent attack of Afghanistan in October kept many Christians on the alert. On suspicion of having WMD, US with UK invaded and conquered Iraq by May 2003.

1John 2:19  They (antichrists) went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us; but they went out that they might be made manifest, that none of them were of us.

By then the faith of Rapture being at the door was over, and the sons of the devil (tares) started to reveal themselves. By the end of 2003, Gene Robinson a gay priest instead of being removed, was elected the Bishop of New Hampshire, USA by 63 bishops of the Episcopal Church.

Sodomy is an abomination to the Lord and a sin leading to death and this was the start of the defilement of His Church. This obvious sign clearly showed that the end of the age had started and the deceptions of the false Christs as warned by our Lord had begun.

Covetous televangelists began their wicked schemes of robbing the congregations by lies, false miracles, deceptions, etc. Faithless pastors and church leaders started to build their own personal Empires by robbing and hoarding God's money meant for His ministries. Some invented 'New movements of the Holy Spirit', which are obvious lies;

Howling like a wolf

Mat 7:15  "Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves."

Hissing as a serpent or snake

Rev 12:9a  So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world;

Barking as a dog

Rev 22:15  But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie.

2Cor 11:13-15  For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light.

Brethren, beware of these false Christs who come as 'anointed apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers' but in reality they are ministers of the devil.
