    2020 has been an awful year so far to date , and I can't help but feel the only way out of this mess is for them to take us to war. All they need is for an incident to happen and that wouldn't be too hard to cause in light of what's going on in the world today. China , N Korea , Iran , or other , take your pick plenty to choose from.
    I hope that I am wrong but I just don't see any other way out of this.

    God's 4 sore judgments are war, plague, famine, wild animals. I expect any of this.

    John 14:1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.

    2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

    3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

    4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.

    What's next? -- How about a peace treaty that gives Israel authority over Jerusalem so they can rebuild the temple? Or massive wildfires?

    How about the rapture of the Church, the catching away of the believers to Heaven. Then the great tribulation. We can hope.

    What Comes Next:
    Habakkuk 1:5 Look around you among the nations, see there a sight that will utterly astound you, you will not believe it when you are told of what is being done in your days.

    Habakkuk 1:6-11 goes on to say how the Babylonians were appointed to execute judgement against the House of Judah, but the preceding verses in Habakkuk 1:1-4 are a general indictment onto peoples and nations whose ‘laws are ineffective and where justice is overruled’. Therefore this threat of action by the Lord applies to our times, as well.

    Acts 13:40-41 Beware, then lest you bring down upon yourselves the doom proclaimed by the prophets. Look, you who fail to grasp the truth, be surprised and perish. I am doing a work in your days, something that you will not believe, even though it has been pointed out to you.
    This is the parallel passage from the New Testament. Pauls quote, was nothing to do with Jesus and His work on the cross, the message of salvation is not ‘doom’.

    It applies to the end times: ‘your days’, not his days, but our days.

    The ‘Doom proclaimed by the prophets’, will be the great and terrible Day of the Lord’s vengeance and wrath. All the prophets and Jesus make it clear that this ‘Day of doom’, is the next prophesied event that we can expect to happen. Jesus quoted the first and half of the second verse of Isaiah 61:1-2, at the commencement of His ministry. The worldwide Day of vengeance of our God’, is the next prophesied event, still not yet happened. It will be the Sixth Seal worldwide disaster, which commences all the prophesied end times events, leading up to the glorious Return of Jesus.

    More than 100 prophecies throughout the Bible describe in vivid detail this forthcoming punishment onto the whole world by devastating fire, earthquakes, storms and tsunamis. This sudden and shocking event will take most people unawares and we are told by Paul, that those who are ‘surprised’; that is unaware and unprepared, then: they may perish.. Ezekiel 21:3-4

    Isaiah 30:26 tells us what it is that causes this worldwide devastation and also that it will be ‘the Day the Lord saves His people’. who are all faithful Christians, who truly believe in Jesus and a few Messianic Jews who are protected in Jerusalem. Isaiah 29:1-4

    Therefore it is up to us to take heed of the warnings, Isaiah 24:1, Isaiah 26:20-21 and to be prepared for all the effects of a massive explosion on the suns surface, that will kill about 1/3 of the world’s population and will destroy all of our modern infrastructure. Jeremiah 9:22
    Then, for all who love the Lord and keep His Commandments, the Lord is ‘waiting to show His favor’, Isaiah 30:18-20 Ref: logostelos.info

    Matthew 24:14 "This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come."

    Daniel 12:4 (KJV) "But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased."

    Matthew 24:5-9"For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows"

    The mark of the beast will be next after the beast that speaks as a dragon makes the earth to wonder after the beast. The mark people will either believe in it or accept it because of economic reasons. The mark of the beast the world will accept it because it will be held up as the reason all these bad things are happening and that we must accept the mark of the beast to stop the bad things from happening.

    The Mark of the 'beast', cannot be enforced until the man described in Daniel 7:24 & 9:27 & 11:21-24, and Revelation 13:1-4 & 17:12-14, rises to power.

    Cordell, you seem to be somewhat confused about end time events.
    The Bible prophesies make it quite clear that the next event we can expect will be the Lords Day of fiery wrath, prophesied and vividly described in over 100 prophesies.
    That terrible Day will be a world changer and will set the scene for the establishment of a One World Govt, soon to be led by one powerful man, as we are told.

    Brother, I believe we have a different understanding of Daniel 7:24 and Revelation 13:1-4 & 17:12-14. I know they refer to the Roman Catholic Church and her mark to be her sabbath Sunday the first day of the week.

    Peace Sincerely

    The leader of the One World Govt will destroy the RCC, as prophesied in Revelation 17:16-18
    Our focus should be on the Middle East situation. It will be there that the end time events will start; with an attack upon Israel by the Islamic peoples. Psalms 83, Micah 4:11-12

    Just curious. How does the mark as sabbath Sunday work? I thought the mark was an actual mark.

    Revelation 17:8 NIV: The beast, which you saw, once was, now is not, and yet will come up out of the Abyss and go to its destruction. The inhabitants of the earth whose names have not been written in the book of life from the creation of the world will be astonished when they see the beast, because it once was, now is not, and yet will come.

    I know of a kingdom that once existed long ago. It existed before the John wrote the above verse yet it did not exist at the time he wrote it. Almost 2000 years after John wrote this verse that kingdom reappeared and the world wondered. Many from all over the world rejoiced when they saw it and they fled to it.
    Today that kingdom is preparing to have a cashless society. They will soon implement a new way of buying and selling.

    I'm expecting the closest ally of that kingdom to soon send an army comprised of gentiles to aid that kingdom and to help defend it. At that time I expect the mark of that kingdom to be given to its citizens.

    The kingdom which once existed before John wrote revelation that did not exist at the time he wrote it, yet does today calls itself by the name, Israel.

    The leader of (God's chosen people) is planning to implement a cashless society.

    Israel eyes cashless economy to boost tax collection

    It wasn't just a few weeks ago that the leader(of God's chosen people) mentioned putting microchips in children.

    https://www.jpost.com/israel-news/b...s-to-microchip-kids-slammed-by-experts-627381

    Just kinda gives away what the leader of (God's chosen people) has up his sleeve.

    Hi, below is a Holy Bible study guide from Amazing Facts about the Mark of the Beast. In Bible prophecy, a Beast is a Kingdom Daniel 7:23 Exodus 13:9 KJV "And it shall be for a sign unto thee upon thine hand, and for a memorial between thine eyes, that the LORD'S law may be in thy mouth." The word sign can be translated as mark, between thine eyes means forehead which is the mind.

    Revelation 14:1 And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father's Name written in their foreheads

    John 17:26 "And I have declared unto them thy Name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved Me may be in them, and I in them"

    1 John 5:3 KJV: "For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments: and His commandments are not grievous."

    Mark 12:30 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the LORD your GOD with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets


    Exodus 20:!2 KJV "Moreover also I gave them my sabbaths, to be a sign between me and them, that they might know that I am the LORD that sanctify them."
