On the world scene, there are many rumours of wars around and serious ones.

Last week Israel killed an Iranian commander in Syria, and so, Iran put their army on full alert and promised a direct response sometime after Ramadan. The Israelis are getting prepared for this attack. It may come through Hezbollah in Lebanon, or some believe that the Iranians may attack with swarms of explosive drones. This could degenerate into a bigger battle.

But let us remember that Iran, or Persia as it is called in the Bible is prophesied to attack Israel in the War of Gog and Magog along with 10 other nations. It is not the time for this big war yet, but what we are seeing are the preparations for it.

Last week, the Polish Prime Minister delivered a bold statement, a warning that Europe has entered a pre-war-era. He said, “I don’t want to scare anyone, but war is no longer a concept from the past, it’s real and it started over two years ago.” He warned that Europe should prepare for war and invest in military defenses.

This is quite a statement. We also know, through Bible prophecies, that such a war between the rest of Europe and Russia, between the east and the west, with all their allies, has been prophesied by the prophets Daniel and Ezekiel. However, while there might be small wars, this big one is yet to come, but this one will be led by the Antichrist who will lead the Western Front against the King of the North, who is Russia and her many allies.

Seeing all this movement in Europe taking shape, and in light of what is happening in Israel, it may very well be that this Antichrist is not far from showing up and that means Yeshua is coming back before, to take His congregation of believers away, as He promised. Yeshua said, “For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes. “But all these things are merely the beginning of birth pangs. Matthew 24:7

This is what we are witnessing today, however, these birth pangs, or the pangs of the Messiah as the Talmud also calls them, will grow in intensity and it seems to be climbing steadily toward its apex these days.

Last week we spoke of a powerful sign concerning the End Times. The subject was the Red Heifer. There was a tremendous response to this news on our YouTube and Facebook pages indicating that many already feel that the world, as it is, is coming to a head, to a major crossroad.

And this week the Temple Faithful in Israel came out with something new. On their website, they  showed a picture of a young man visiting the Red Heifer who, according to them, is fit to perform the sacrifice. This man is a kohen from the tribe of Levy. They say that he came into the world via home birth, has never set foot in a hospital or cemetery, and is therefore considered by Jewish law to be of the highest level of purity.

So now they have the Red Heifer, the proper Levite to sacrifice it, the altar and all that is needed for the functioning of the Third Temple. The only thing missing is the building. It is possible that it will be a main subject of negotiation when this war with Hamas ends. Let’s keep our eyes on Israel, the barometer of the world.

One more time, all these signs predicted in the Bible, tell us that the fields are white for harvest as Yeshua told the disciples. They were told this 2000 years ago, but the fields are increasingly opened for further harvest and this door of opportunity to share is there for all believers. We are living in remarkable times.
