What Does It Mean To Be Saved

A Great Change  Is Coming Upon the World; It Is About To Enter the Tribulation

Ecclesiastes 3:14-17 

14 And I know that whatever God does is final. Nothing can be added to it or taken from it. God's purpose in this is that people should fear him. 15 Whatever exists today and whatever will exist in the future has already existed in the past. For God calls each event back in its turn. 16 I also noticed that throughout the world there is evil in the courtroom. Yes, even the courts of law are corrupt! 17 I said to myself, "In due season God will judge everyone, both good and bad, for all their deeds."  NLT
Matthew 24:6-9; Matthew 24:21-22; Daniel 2:44; Revelation 18:1-3

6 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.  7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places.  8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. 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. NKJV

21 For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be.  22 And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect's sake those days will be shortened.  NKJV

44 And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever. KJV

1 After these things I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was illuminated with his glory. 2 And he cried mightily with a loud voice, saying,"Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and has become a dwelling place of demons, a prison for every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean and hated bird! 3 For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich through the abundance of her luxury." NKJV

Great change is coming soon upon this God forsaken world, but it is not the change Obama touted last night in his SOTU address. The world had been in the time Jesus described as the "beginning of sorrows" since this generation began proven by the text of Matthew 24 as Verse 8 describes the situation of Verses 6-7. It is my studied opinion that the end-time generation is 120 years which began in 1897 with the First Zionist Congress in Basel Switzerland. Both World Wars took place after that date and the early stages of WWIII are already in motion. This is also "Mystery Babylon time," which is about to be judged and destroyed. The United States began to be yoked to Mystery Babylon in 1913 with the creation of the Federal Reserve and the control of world money markets by the Central Banks of Europe and the U.S. The apparatus for Revelation 13:18 is also in place - the "Mark of the Beast," which is economic slavery to the Beast system. 

Note: While I am certain the end-time generation is 120 years from Matthew 24:37 and Genesis 6:3 for the Greek construction of Matthew 24:37 says, "just like" the days of Noah (God told Noah his generation before the flood would end in 120 years and it did), it now appears 1897 may not  be the starting date as 120 years from 1897 ends in 2017. That leaves 6 years or less for the 7-year tribulation. However, Jesus said for the elects sake the Great Tribulation would be cut short. Some believe that may be as much as 13 months. If that does turn out to be true, then 1897 may still be the starting point for the end generation. Jesus said to look for buds on the Fig Tree and the first bud was 1897.  The problem is that the Sacred Calendar (See Exodus 12) and the modern secular calendar are not in sync. There may be a 3-4 year difference. Anyway, the signs of the end tell us it cannot be far off.   

The "beginning of sorrows" are about to transcend into the tribulation period in which great persecution is coming upon believers worldwide (it is already in progress) including the Church in the United States (the true Church not that apostate thing). The ten kings who will head 10 world regions, which is the New World Order (Illuminati), is forming and may be in place by the end of 2012. These must form before the Antichrist appears. The prophecies of both Daniel and Revelation predict the rise of Russia and China in the last generation. That is taking place before our eyes. The New World Order is going to be a Russian - Chinese Marxist government headed by the Antichrist. When the Antichrist takes control of the revised UN, he will use the military power of Russia and China to subjugate the nations of the world. In his rise to power, he will defeat three nations that oppose him. I believe one of those nations could be the United States for we have long ignored God's warnings to repent. 

The good news is that in the days of these kings - the formation of the New World Order with its false utopian dream of the "New Atlantis," the God of heaven is going to destroy it and set up His kingdom on the earth. Even though very difficult days are coming, the Lord Jesus is coming soon, perhaps at the end of the next 10 years. There is no such thing in the Scriptures as a pretrib rapture, so it is not scripturally incorrect to know as much about the end-time generation as possible. It is all in the Word and God has promised to reveal His secrets to His servants, the prophets (Amos 3:7). 

A great change is soon to come upon planet earth (global warming is nothing less than God preparing the world for the tribulation) and many are going to be caught completely off-guard, including professing believers who attend Church services every Sunday.  The Spanish scientist is correct in that time is getting shorter for the universe is wearing out as God said it would in His Word. It will be replaced by the new heavens and the new earth.

Are you ready for the change that is coming upon this sin-sick world?  Only those who have real genuine faith in the Lord Jesus will discern these times for the Holy Spirit will bear witness with our spirits.

 Daniel 12:10 says none of the wicked shall understand but the wise shall understand the end times. Are you one of the wise?
