'About the time of the end, a
body of men will be raised up who will turn their attention to the
Prophecies, and insist upon their literal interpretation, in the midst of
much clamor and opposition." Sir Issac Newton 1642-1727

forces pass but he remains. What is the secret of his immortality?' Mark Twain
Is there anyway of knowing who the true God
Is there anyway of knowing whether the Bible is the word of God?
Are we simply to accept these things 'by faith' without any evidence?
For God to be God, He must know all things. That's obvious. That includes
everything that has happened, is happening, and most incredibly, what will
happen in the future. The God of the Bible says this about Himself -
Isaiah 46:9-10 'I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like me.
I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to
come. I say: My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please.'
So not only does the God of the Bible know all things, but He
has chosen to make known to us, through the Bible, what is still to come! In
fact, even more than that, the God of the Bible CHALLENGES any so-called
'gods' to do the same!!!
Isaiah 41:21-23 “Present your case,” says the LORD. “Set forth your arguments,” says Jacob’s King.
“Bring in your idols to tell us what is going to happen. Tell us what the former things were, so that we may consider them and know their final outcome.
Or declare to us the things to come, tell us what the future holds, so we may know that you are gods.'
Yahweh, the God of the Bible issues this challenge because He
knows that there are no other Gods. He alone is God, and therefore, it stands to
reason, that He alone is the only one who could accurately and
consistently declare the
end from the beginning! In view of this, it should not surprise us to learn that
there are no detailed prophecies in the Koran (Islam's holy book), the Hindu
Vedas, the book of Mormon, or the sayings of Buddha. The reason being that it is
impossible to consistently and accurately predict specific future events unless
you are God! Yet nearly 30% of the entire Bible is devoted to prophecy of what
is to come!
So let's examine some of the different prophecies contained in
the Bible. This will be split up into the following categories: prophecies of
the Messiah, prophecies concerning Israel, and prophecies concerning the
conditions in the last days.
No prophecy foretold the coming of Buddha, Confucius
or Muhammad. Yet there are hundreds concerning Jesus Christ, the
Messiah. All of these prophecies were fulfilled in the life and death of Jesus
Christ. Please also remember that all of the Old Testament prophecies (in red)
were spoken, and recorded, hundreds of years before Jesus came to earth.
1. The Messiah
would be born in Bethlehem
Old Testament Prophecy: Micah 5:2 'But
you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of
you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from
of old, from ancient times.'
Here is a
prophecy that stated that the coming king of Israel would come from Bethlehem.
The ancient Jewish Rabbi's knew and recorded that this was a prophecy concerning
the coming Messiah. This is evident from the text itself for the coming ruler is
said to have origins from ancient times, or everlasting as other translations
say. So did Jesus come from Bethlehem? Yes...
New Testament Fulfillment: Matt 2:1 'After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea...'
2. The Messiah
would be preceded by a messenger
Old Testament Prophecy: Malachi
3:1 "Behold, I send My messenger, And he will prepare the way before Me. And the
Lord, whom you seek, Will suddenly come to His temple, Even the Messenger of the
covenant, In whom you delight. Behold, He is coming," Says the Lord of hosts.
Old Testament Prophecy: Isaiah 40:3 'The voice of him that cries in the
wilderness, Prepare the way of the Lord, make straight in the wilderness a
highway for our God.'
The Hebrew prophets
foretold that the coming of the Messiah would be proceeded by a messenger that
would prepare the way for Him. Did that occur with Jesus? We know it did for
John the Baptist, the cousin of Jesus, came first to preach repentance and turn
the hearts of the people back to the Lord.
New Testament Fulfillment Matt 3:1-2 'In those days came John the Baptist, preaching
in the wilderness of Judea, and saying Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at
New Testament Fulfillment John 1:21, 23 They asked him (John the
Baptist), "Then who are you? Are you Elijah?"... John replied in the words
of Isaiah the prophet, "I am the voice of one calling in the desert, 'Make
straight the way for the Lord.' "
3. The Messiah
would enter Jerusalem on a colt
Old Testament Prophecy: Zechariah 9:9 'Rejoice greatly O daughter of Zion; shout, O
daughter of Jerusalem; behold, thy King comes to you... humble riding on a
donkey, even on a colt, the foal of a donkey.'
Here is another verse which the ancient Jewish Rabbis
knew to be about the coming Messiah. It states that their King, the Messiah,
would ride into Jerusalem humbly on the foal of a donkey. Did Jesus fulfill this
New Testament Fulfillment Luke 19:33-38 As they were
untying the colt, its owners asked them, "Why are you untying the colt?" They
replied, "The Lord needs it." They brought it to Jesus, threw their cloaks on
the colt and put Jesus on it. As he went along, people spread their cloaks on
the road. When he came near the place where the road goes down the Mount of
Olives, the whole crowd of disciples began joyfully to praise God in loud voices
for all the miracles they had seen: Blessed is the king who comes in the name of
the Lord! "Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!"'
4. The Messiah
would be betrayed by a friend
Old Testament Prophecy: Psalm 41:9 'Yes, my own friend in whom I trusted, which
did eat of my bread, hath lifted up his heel against me.'
Here was a prophecy that stated that the Messiah would
be betrayed by a friend. Jesus quoted this very scripture before the betrayal
even took place!
New Testament Fulfillment: John 13:18-22 I know those
I have chosen. But this is to fulfill the scripture: 'He who shares my bread has
lifted up his heel against me.' I am telling you now before it happens, so that
when it does happen you will believe that I am He... After he had said this,
Jesus was troubled in spirit and testified, "I tell you the truth, one of you is
going to betray me." His disciples stared at one another, at a loss to know
which of them he meant.
New Testament Fulfillment Matt 26:47-50 'And while he spoke, Judas, one of the
twelve, came, and with him a great multitude with swords... Now he that betrayed
him gave them a sign, saying, Whosoever I shall kiss, that same is he; hold him
fast... and Jesus said unto him, 'Friend, why have you come?'
Messiah would be valued at thirty pieces of silver
Old Testament Prophecy: Zechariah
11:12-13 'I told them, "If you think it best, give me my pay; but if
not, keep it." So they paid me thirty pieces of silver. And the LORD
said to me, "Throw it to the potter"--the handsome price at which they
priced me! So I took the thirty pieces of silver and threw them into
the house of the LORD to the potter.'
This is a remarkable prophecy for it is God who says 'Cast it to the
potter that magnificent (sarcasm!) price at which they valued me...' How could
man put a price on God? It doesn't make sense until God Himself, Jesus Christ,
came to earth and was valued and betrayed for exactly 30 pieces of silver! This
was the amount that Judas received for betraying Jesus.
New Testament Fulfillment Matthew 26:14-15 Then one of the
Twelve--the one called Judas Iscariot-- went to the chief priests and
asked, "What are you willing to give me if I hand him over to you?" So
they counted out for him thirty silver coins.'
Messiah's betrayal money would be thrown into the temple
Old Testament Prophecy:
Zechariah 11:12-13 'I told them, "If you think it best, give me my
pay; but if not, keep it." So they paid me thirty pieces of silver.
And the LORD said to me, "Throw it to the potter"--the handsome price
at which they priced me! So I took the thirty pieces of silver and
threw them into the house of the LORD to the potter.'
The second part of this prophecy is
interesting as well. It states that the 30 pieces of silver that the
Lord was valued at would be thrown into the house of the Lord, to the
potter. This was fulfilled in the betrayal of Jesus through the
actions of Judas as recorded:
New Testament Fulfillment Matthew 27:5-7 'So Judas threw the
money into the temple and left. Then he went away and hanged himself.
The chief priests picked up the coins and said, "It is against the law
to put this into the treasury, since it is blood money." So they
decided to use the money to buy the potter's field as a burial place
Messiah would be wounded and crushed - for our peace!
Old Testament Prophecy: Isaiah 53:5 'But
he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our
iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by
his wounds we are healed..'
is just one verse from the famous and amazing Messianic chapter,
Isaiah 53. It gives the reason why the Messiah would be wounded and
crushed - He was crushed for our iniquities, this great prophecy
states, and by His wounds and death, we can be granted peace with God.
New Testament Fulfillment Matt 27:26 'Then they released Barabbas unto them and when
he had scourged Jesus, he delivered him to be crucified.'
8. The Messiah
would be crucified! They would pierce His hands and feet
Old Testament Prophecy: Psalms
22:14-16 I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint. My heart
has turned to wax; it has melted away within me. My strength is dried up like a
potsherd, and my tongue sticks to the roof of my mouth; you lay me in the dust
of death. Dogs have surrounded me; a band of evil men has encircled me, they
have pierced my hands and my feet..'
22, where this prophecy is found, was written by King David about 1000 BC and
begins with the very words that Jesus spoke from the cross. It describes the act
of crucifixion in detail. What makes this remarkable is that crucifixion was not
practiced by the Jews (stoning was their form of capital punishment) and didn't
exist at the time when this Psalm was written. The Encyclopedia Britannica
states that the earliest use of crucifixion was in 519 BC when "Darius I, king
of Persia, crucified 3,000 political opponents in Babylon". Yet crucifixion is
described in detail 500 years before this in Psalm 22 and 1000 years before the
Messiah died in this manner!
New Testament Fulfillment Luke 23:33 'And when they came to the place, which is
called Calvary, there they crucified him and the criminals, one on the right and
the other on the left.'
New Testament Fulfillment: John 19:36-37 These things
happened so that the scripture would be fulfilled: "Not one of his bones will be
broken," and, as another scripture says, "They will look on the one they have
9. They would
cast lots for the Messiah's clothing
Old Testament Prophecy: Psalm 22:18 'They divide my garments among them, and for
my clothing they cast lots.'
Among the many
prophecies from Psalm 22, this verse also tells us that the Messiah's clothing
would be divided among those watching and specifically that they would cast lots
for it. This was fulfilled just as described above 1000 years before it came to
New Testament Fulfillment Mathew 27:35 'And when they had crucified Him, they divided
up His garments among themselves by casting lots.'
Messiah would rise from the dead!
Old Testament Prophecy: Psalms
16:9-11 Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body
also will rest secure, because you will not abandon me to the grave,
nor will you let your Holy One see decay. You have made known to me
the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with
eternal pleasures at your right hand.
Here is a prophecy that states that the
Messiah would not be abandoned in the grave and nor would His body see
decay. The bodies of all that die decay in the ground. But not the
Messiah. He would not be left in the grave but would see the path and
newness of life! He would be raised!
New Testament Fulfillment Luke 24:1-5 'But on the first day
of the week, at early dawn, they came to the tomb... And they found
the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they entered, they did
not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were perplexed about
this, behold, two men suddenly stood near them in dazzling clothing;
and as the women were terrified and bowed their faces to the ground,
the men said to them, "Why do you seek the living One among the dead?'
Acts 2:29-32 'Brothers, I can tell you confidently that the patriarch
David died and was buried, and his tomb is here to this day. But he
was a prophet and knew that God had promised him on oath that he would
place one of his descendants on his throne. Seeing what was ahead, he
spoke of the resurrection of the Christ, that he was not abandoned to
the grave, nor did his body see decay. God has raised this Jesus to
life, and we are all witnesses of the fact.'
Statisticians have calculated that for all of the above prophecies to be fulfilled
in one person it is a combined probability of One chance in
10,000,000,000,000,000,000! And this is limiting ourselves to just these 10
prophecies! Jesus claimed to be the fulfillment of the Old
Testament Messianic prophecies, and now we have seen that His life and death did accurately
fulfill these prophecies made hundreds of years before.
For further information, see
By far, the greatest number of prophecies in the
Bible concern the nation of Israel. In fact, many have said that if you want to
know what time it is on God's clock, then look at the nation of Israel, for she
shall be the center of attention in the fulfillment of Bible prophecies in these
last days. Today we live in an age when the entire focus of the world is upon a
tiny strip of land in the Middle East called Israel. So lets have a look at what
Bible prophecy says about this nation.
1. Disobedience would lead to the nation of
Israel being scattered amongst all nations.
Deuteronomy 28:64 'Then the LORD will scatter you among
all nations, from one end of the earth to the other.'
See also Lev 26:33, Jer 9:16, Ezek 12:15. In all, 6 different books of the Bible
predict the scattering of Israel amongst all the nations of the earth. History
records this being fulfilled in 70 AD when Jerusalem was destroyed by the Roman
Empire and the remaining Jews were scattered amongst the nations.
2. No rest for their souls while in exile
amongst the nations
28:65-66 Among those nations you will find no
repose, no resting place for the sole of your foot. There the LORD will give you
an anxious mind, eyes weary with longing, and a despairing heart. You will live
in constant suspense, filled with dread both night and day, never sure of your
For nearly 2000 years following the destruction
in 70AD, the 'wandering Jew' has lived without a homeland, subject to the
strongest racial prejudice and torment suffered by any people group. From the
day they were scattered to the day Hitler devised his 'final solution to the Jewish
problem', this prophecy spoken by Moses has sadly been fulfilled.
3. God himself would restore the Jews to the land of Israel
from all the nations
Jeremiah 16:14-16 However, the days are coming,"
declares the LORD, "when men will no longer say, ‘As surely as the LORD
lives, who brought the Israelites up out of Egypt,’ but they will say, ‘As
surely as the LORD lives, who brought the Israelites up out of the land of the
north and out of all the countries where he had banished them.’ For I will
restore them to the land I gave their forefathers.
In all, 13 books of the Bible speak of the nation of Israel being
restored in their land from the nations in which they were scattered. This
prophecy became history in 1948 when the United Nations granted a homeland to
the Jewish people and the nation of Israel was reborn! See also Jer 3:14,
31:8-9, Isa 60:8-9, Deut 30:3, Amos 9:15.
4. The desolate land of Israel
would again blossom and be fruitful in the last days.
Zechariah 7:14 I
scattered them with a whirlwind among all the nations, where they were
strangers. The land was left so desolate behind them that no one could come or
go. This is how they made the pleasant land desolate.
History records that while the Jewish
people were exiled amongst many nations, the land of Israel was a barren desert.
See also Lev 26:33, Ezek 15:8, Jer 9:12-13, 23:10, 44:22, Isa 32:13
Isaiah 27:6 In
the days to come, Jacob will take root, Israel will bud and blossom and fill the
world with fruit.
This is exactly the case today! Not only
has God bought the Jewish people back into their land like He said He would in
the last days, but He has also blessed the land so that they now export flowers
and fruit around the world! Satellite photos show the green pastures of the
nation of Israel, in sharp contrast with the surrounding desert lands of the
Arab nations. See also Isa 35:1, Ezek 36:35.
5. God Himself would defend Israel and cause Israel to be
mighty in battle
Zechariah 12:8 On that day
the LORD will shield those who live in Jerusalem, so that the feeblest among
them will be like David, and the house of David will be like God, like the Angel
of the LORD going before them.
Taken in context, this verse speaks about
God defending Israel in a battle to come in the last days. Have we not seen this
miraculously occur several times since Israel became a nation again in 1948? They
have been greatly outnumbered in key Arab-Israeli wars in 1948, 1967, and 1973.
Yet Israel exists! God has seen to that!
6. In the last days, Jerusalem
would be a burden to the entire world.
Zechariah 12:2-3 Behold, I
will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about... And
in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that
burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces.
Turn on your TV and watch the news. What
nation and what city would you most likely expect to see? Israel and Jerusalem!
Today, Jerusalem is a burden that causes trembling for all the nations just as
God foretold. What makes this prophecy even more remarkable is that when the
prophet Zechariah spoke these words around 520BC, Jerusalem lay in ruins. But
God said it would become the focus of the world's attention! Today, Israel has
0.01% of the worlds population, yet 33% of the United Nations resolutions have
been passed concerning her!
7. In the end, all nations shall come against Israel.
Zechariah 14:2 I will
gather all the nations to Jerusalem to fight against it; the city will be
captured, the houses ransacked, and the women raped.
Apart from the USA, Israel has few
allies. In a recent conference on racism in South Africa, the Israeli and United
States delegates were forced to walk out as the other participating nations
vented their anger towards Israel and tried to declare it a racist state. One
day, the Bible predicts, she will have no allies, and all nations shall be gathered against
her. The TV news will show you that we are on the road towards that battle. But
if the odds seem a little uneven, please read the next prophecy that the Bible
8. God Himself, Jesus Christ, will return and fight for
Israel against the attacking nations.
Zechariah 14:3-4 Then the
LORD will go out and fight against those nations, as he fights in the day of
battle. On that day his feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, east of
Jerusalem, and the Mount of Olives will be split in two from east to west,
forming a great valley, with half of the mountain moving north and half moving
You may have heard of this battle to
come. It's called the battle of Armageddon because of the location where the
nations assemble themselves before attacking. The book of Revelation puts it
Revelation 16:14-16 They are
spirits of demons performing miraculous signs, and they go out to the kings of
the whole world, to gather them for the battle on the great day of God
Almighty... Then they gathered the kings together to the place that
in Hebrew is called Armageddon.
Revelation also prophecies the return of Jesus
Christ on this day saying...
Revelation 19:11 I saw heaven standing
open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and
True. With justice he judges and makes war.
9. The nation of Israel will finally recognize that Jesus
was their Messiah, whom they crucified!
Zechariah 12:9-10 On that
day I will set out to destroy all the nations that attack Jerusalem. And I will
pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of
grace and supplication. They will look on me, the one they have pierced, and
they will mourn for him as one mourns for an only child, and grieve bitterly for
him as one grieves for a firstborn son.
What a day that will be! Even though the
Bible predicted that the Messiah would die, and have His feet and hands pierced,
the nation of Israel has, for the last 2000 years, hardened their heart and not
believed that Jesus was their Messiah. At the time of the end, they will again
look to the one whom they pierced and oh how great the mourning and sadness will
be on that day for what they did! Yet Jesus will pour out His grace upon Israel!
10. God will judge the nations depending upon their
treatment of the Jewish people.
In those days and at that time, when I restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem, I will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. There I will enter into judgment against them concerning my inheritance, my people Israel, for they scattered my people among the nations
and divided up my land.
Today we live in an age where we hear all
the time about a 'Middle-East peace process'. It essentially comes down to
'Israel give up more of your land and we won't send as many suicide bombers into
your cities...' It seems everyone wants a slice of Jerusalem for themselves. For
this, and the world's repeated and continual abysmal treatment of the Jewish
people, the judgment of God will come.
These prophecies are not vague like
Nostradamus or modern day 'so-called' psychics. They are detailed and specific
in their application. Time and space does not permit us to go into the many
other prophecies concerning the nation of Israel. Yet such things as a false
peace, the rebuilding of the third Jewish temple, and a coming great persecution
of the Jewish people under a world leader have all been prophesied. It will all
take place because God has said it.
While the key sign of the end times is the rebirth
of Israel, as mentioned above, there are many important signs to look out for to
recognize the end of the age. Several of these are repeated consistently by Jesus
Himself, and writers of the New Testament.
1. An increase in disasters,
plagues and wars
Mathew 24:3-7 As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately. “Tell us,” they said, “when will this happen, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?” Jesus answered: '...You will
hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be
famines and earthquakes in various places.
That our generation has seen a marked
increase in famines and earthquakes has been thoroughly documented. The word
'nation' in this passage can also be translated 'ethnic group'. Again, even
within nations there has been a great increase in the unrest between races. See
also Revelation chapter 6.
2. A rise in false religious
leaders, deception and those claiming to be Christ.
answered: "Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my
name, claiming, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many.
Again, our generation has seen a flood of
guru's and so-called Christ's invade our culture as the west has opened itself
up to Hinduism in the form of the New Age.
3. A falling away from the
true faith in Jesus Christ.
24:10 At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate
2 Thes 2:3 Let no one in any way deceive you, for it (the day of the Lord -
God's judgment upon the earth) will not come unless the apostasy (a falling away
from the faith) comes first.
It is sad to see, but our
generation has seen a great move away from Biblical Christianity, in favour of
ecumenicalism and unity with all faiths. This is setting the scene for the one
world religion which will occur in the last days and is a direct result of the
deception prophesied about and mentioned above.
4. An explosion in knowledge and travel.
Daniel 12:4 But you,
Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many
shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.
This increase in knowledge is occurring
now at an exponential rate. The internet has played a large role in this. We now play God with the very genes and DNA that
make us human. Surely Jesus will have to return soon, for where will this lead
if left in the hands of a fallen creation?
5. Increase in wickedness and a decrease in
24: 12 Because of the increase of wickedness,
the love of most will grow cold.
24:37 As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son
Luke 17:28-30 Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot... Even so will it be
in the day when the Son of Man is revealed.
The days of Noah were known for their wickedness and violence (Gen 6:5). The days
of Lot, living in Sodom and Gomorrah
were known for the homosexuality that occurred. (Gen 19) We see both increasing
today with parades to openly display and flaunt their wickedness.
6. General signs concerning the condition of the
2 Timothy 3:1-5 But know this, that in the last days
perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money,
boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of
good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of
God, having a form of godliness but denying its power.
The Bible says that in the last days humanity will love themselves, money, and pleasure... but not God! - In our
age, self-esteem and loving yourself is in... boasting and pride is promoted!
Family life is breaking down as people are becoming more disobedient towards
parents, unthankful, unloving, and unforgiving.
7. God's people will be persecuted,
hated and killed.
Then you will be handed over to be
and put to death,
and you will be hated by all nations because of me.
A recent report on persecution stated that more Christians were
martyred in the 20th century than in all previous centuries
combined... and the 21st century has started of worse still! Another
recent report researched 33 countries and reported that 75% of all
religious persecution is against Christians! Unfortunately it will
8. The emergence of a world leader.
Revelation 13:3-8 The whole world was astonished and
followed the beast (the Antichrist, who will rule the world)... and they also
worshiped the beast and asked, "Who is like the beast? Who can make war
against him?" And he was given authority over every tribe, people, language
and nation. All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast—all whose
names have not been written in the book of life belonging to the Lamb that was
slain from the creation of the world.
Listen to the world leaders today as they speak of the 'New World Order'.
See the unification that is occurring within Europe and other nations. Even
non-Christians can see that we are heading for a one world government. This is
what the Bible predicted nearly 2000 years ago. This government will be given
into the hands of the most wicked man this world has ever known.
9. A global financial system and the mark of the beast!
Revelation 13:16,17 He (the antichrist) also forced
everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on
his right hand or on his forehead, so that no one could buy or sell unless he
had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name.
What was an absurd impossibility 2000 years ago, is rapidly becoming
reality today. Does anyone really doubt that this is where we are going with
today's technology? We already place microchips in our cats and dogs to give
them a unique identifier. If we are to have a one world government, then what
better way to control the people than to control all finance and trade? It is a
clear sign of the age in which we live that we now have the technology to
control finance in this way.
10. A mocking of Jesus' return and
the signs of His coming
2 Peter 3:3-4
Above all, you
must understand that in the last days
scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires.
They will say,
“Where is this ‘coming’ he promised?
Ever since our ancestors died, everything goes on as it has since the
beginning of creation.”
The last sign could well be the saddest. The Apostle Peter tells us
that despite the signs that are clearly seen, people will scoff and
mock at the thought that the end of the age and the return of Jesus
are coming. They prefer just to believe that everything will carry on
as it always has. I trust and hope that you, having read the key Bible
prophecies listed on this page, take these things seriously and are
not among those that mock.
