How many reading this believe the end of the age is near? How many believe that because of the things Jesus listed in this passage? I do too, but it behooves us to get it right, amen? The first thing I would like to point out is the fact that these events are in chronological order. First the Beginnings of Sorrows THEN the tribulation begins THEN the great falling away. This is important to know lest anyone be MISLEAD as He just warned us about. Mislead how?

Any Teaching ...


That puts the apostasy/falling away BEFORE the great tribulation begins is not listening to Messiah.




Time-Senstive


These are all time-sensitive SIGNS of His Return.




Did you know?


Jesus was quoting an Old Testament prophecy that unlocks the whole mystery for us?





Isaiah 19

Kingdom Against Kingdom Identified


Verses 8, 42 and 43 name Egypt directly 8 Also their gods with their metal images and their precious vessels of silver and gold he will take into captivity to Egypt, and he on his part will refrain from attacking the king of the North forsome years
42 Then he will stretch out his hand against other countries, and the land of Egypt will not escape.
43 But he will gain control over the hidden treasures of gold and silver and over all the precious things of Egypt; and Libyans and Ethiopians will follow at his heels. There is every reason to believe that the 10 mentions of “King of the South” in that chapter is Egypt. The “King of the North” is simply the King of Javan (Turkey) and his realm as specified back in verse 2. King of the North = Turkey (Turkish-led coalition)
King of the South = Egypt These are the "Kingdom Against Kingdom" wars Jesus told us are a specific sign of His coming.




Verses 23-30 =


Caliphate comes together under the Little Horn's leadership and events start to happen rapidly; just like labor pains! verse 23 = Covenant confirmed with 10 Kings and Israel, see Daniel 9:27 - final 7 years begin
verse 25 = Antichrist invades Egypt; "Kingdom against Kingdom" of Isaiah 19
= first 3.5 years, "Beginnings of Sorrows"!




Verses 5-22 =


power struggle for the future of this Caliphate for an unspecified period of time
verse 15 = Egypt falls to Turkey and submits to the Caliphate = Cruel Master of Isa. 19
verse 21 = Little Horn rises - must come from Turkey, Syria or Iraq (land of the north/the Assyrian)




Verses 1-4 =


Turkish coalition vs Iran as detailed in Dan. 8 - yes the same time period!
Persia = Iran
Yavan = Turkey's realm
verse 3 = "great horn"/"first king" of chapter 8, likely current Turkish dictator Erdogan verse 4 = parcelling lands into 4 nations, see Dan. 8




Verses 32-45 =


Great Tribulation - Antichrist's war against the Church and the Jews leading to Gog/Magog invasion and battle of Armageddon at Christ's return.




Verse 31 =


Abomination of Desolation - Great Tribulation/final 3.5 years begins.





Daniel 11

Aren’t the wars of Turkey vs Iran and Egypt the “Kingdom against Kingdom” that Jesus was referring to?! But remember the end IS NOT YET. Jerusalem must be desolated/tread down and the Jews and Church persecuted and killed by the Beast and False Prophet for 3.5 years before our King returns to take His rightful place. Major wars in the middle east WILL happen but Yeshua will NOT return (and we are not raptured to meet Him) until the END. The end of all THESE things:

 

Seventy weeks have been decreed for your people and your holy city, to finish the transgression, to make an end of sin, to make atonement for iniquity, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy and to anoint the most holy place. - Dan. 9:24

To Summarize

Any Teaching ...


That puts the apostasy/falling away BEFORE the great tribulation begins is not listening to Messiah.

So now what do we do with this? We sound the trumpet loud and clear to the Church and the world. Seek out and speak with those who Fear the Lord so we may have enough Oil in our lamps when the Midnight hour finally arrives. Don’t be one of the 5 virgins who is shut out!!
