Are we there yet?
Are we living in the end of this age? Many people use various terms: The end of the World, End of the age, End-Times, etc.
Many people, even unbelievers, seem to believe that we a possibly nearing the end-times. Many believe that there are many natural disturbances like floods, huricanes, torronados, etc. that are a foreboding of the coming of the end of the world.
There have been times in history people believed this. Most people believed that end of World would come at 1000 A.D. This was believed because people of that time believed that Jesus was going to return after a millennium. Augustine the great Roman Catholic theologian had essentially taught this. The were many other times like this through the course of Church history.
What do I believe? While in the past there were a few signs that would cause be to be concerned, there is an increasing amount of signs and an increase in their intensity. Also, along with this there are many aspects of prophetic Scripture that seem to have been fulfilled. Two of the most important signs and fulfillments are: 1) Israel returned to their land and they now have their own nation in fulfillment of many prophetic passages in the Hebrew Scripture, and 2) Roman is now revived and has a President, (European Union leaders named Belgian Prime Minister Herman Van Rompuy as the first “president of Europe“) http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/8367589.stm and Foreign Minister, Baronness Catherine Ashton http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catherine_Ashton
Roman now speaks with one voice assuming it can get it’s act together. Even as the prophecy of the great Statue in Daniel 2 there will be great weakness in Revived Roman. The feet and ankles of the statue were mixed with clay and iron – some weak and some strong. This is actually the condition of the current European Union.
These two major entities were long awaited fulfillments of biblical prophecy. Without them no other prophecy could be fulfilled. If you would like to have more information regarding the end of the age, contact us. I have been studying this matter for 50 years.
Yes, I believe that the biblical end of the age is now upon us.
