(OPINION) ETH – There are multiple signs emerging to reveal that the end of the age is near, according to many who keep up with the signs of the times. The signs have been there since Israel was established in 1948 following the Second World War.
According to a recent commentary from the website “End Times Prophecy Watch” Israel is considered to be the Holy Land, and once it was re-established following WW2 to act as a safe space for Jewish people, it was only a matter of time before the apocalypse began.
Website End Times Prophecy Watch said: “The first is the re-establishment of the state of Israel which occurred on May 14, 1948. Jesus singled out this event as the one that would signal His soon return. “His prophecy is contained in the fig tree parable (Matthew 24:32-35) which He presented in His Olivet Discourse. “The day before He delivered this speech, He had put a curse on a barren fig tree, causing it to wither (Matthew 21:18-19).
“This was a symbolic prophecy that God would soon pour out His wrath upon the Jewish people because of their spiritual barrenness in rejecting His Son. “The next day Jesus reminded His disciples of the fig tree. He said to watch for it to bloom again. “In other words, He said to watch for the rebirth of Israel.
He indicated that when the fig tree blooms again, He would be at the gates of Heaven, ready to return (Matthew 24:33). “Equally significant, He added an interesting observation: ‘Truly I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place” (Matthew 24:34).
What generation? The generation that sees the fig tree blossom. “We are that generation. The fig tree has blossomed. Jesus is at the gates. There is no way to escape the conclusion that we are living on borrowed time. “The signs of the times are upon us, and they are shouting for our attention.”
