Five POSITIVE Signs of the RETURN OF JESUS

There are many signs of the approaching return of Jesus Christ but here are FIVE which are not always emphasised because they are positive and many people like to emphasise the negatives. 

ONE… Not only is the nation of Israel restored but there is a great rising up of Jewish people standing for the Messiah. There is a mighty Messianic movement and the followers of Yeshua in Israel are multiplying rapidly, both Jews and Arabs.

 

The Book of Revelation speaks of 144,000 JEWISH spiritual leaders during the traumatic rule of Anti-Christ.. We are seeing a raising up of Jewish spiritual leadership. 

  • SID ROTH’s TV program IT’S SUPERNATURAL inspires believers around the world.
  • JONATHAN BERNIS is evangelising multitudes of Jews.
  • NICKY GUMBEL’s father was a German Jew and his leadership of the Alpha Course has impacted many nations. The rabbis do not recognise him as a Jew because his mother may not have been Jewish but God might not always agree with the rabbis.. Jesus often didn’t.


TWO … dramatic movement towards reconciliation and unity between the different branches of the family of God.. between Christians of different traditions and even between Christians and Jews!

 John 17:20-21 (NKJV)   “I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word;

that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me.

Then we see also the promise of the restoration of the Jews, which is brought much nearer by the alliance developing between Christians and Jews particularly centred around support for Israel.

 Romans 11:24-27 (NKJV)

24  For if you were cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and were grafted contrary to nature into a cultivated olive tree, how much more will these, who are natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree?

25  For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in.

26  And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written: “The Deliverer will come out of Zion, And He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob;

27  For this is My covenant with them, When I take away their sins.”


THREE… The great End Time pouring out of the Holy Spirit began over 100 years ago in the USA and God set in motion the Pentecostal-Charismatic movement which is gaining strength every day on every continent. 

This is often not emphasised by End Times prophetic teachers because many of them (and very good ones) are conservative and not Charismatic.       

FOUR … There has been a rising up of a world wide movement of prayer, worship and intercession.

Luke 18:1-8 (NKJV)

1  Then He spoke a parable to them, that men always ought to pray and not lose heart…..

7  And shall God not avenge His own elect who cry out day and night to Him, though He bears long with them?

8  I tell you that He will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?”

GOD IS LOOKING FOR A PEOPLE WHO WILL CRY OUT TO HIM..

The answer to the question of Jesus is clearly YES. The Son of Man will return to His people on earth who are Filled with the Holy Spirit, persistently crying out in faith, united in Love and reaching out to the lost Jewish brothers and sisters of Jesus.


FIVE … Many emphasise the sad prophecies of Jesus, that the love of many will grow cold and many will fall away but in the same chapter of Matthew, we see a wonderful POSITIVE prophecy.

Mt 14  And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.

AND THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT WE ARE SEEING IN CHINA, IN AFRICA, IN LATIN AMERICA AND INCREASINGLY IN INDONESIA AND INDIA… and the great evangelism explosion has hardly begun in post-Christian Britain, Europe and Australia.. BUT IT WILL COME SOON.
