Why Jesus is Probably coming back Soon
The Turkish, Muslim, Persian, and Arab Invasion of Israel. The world will soon see a temporary peace because of an Old Testament prophecy that is about to take place, and which the prophet Ezekiel said would occur in the latter years before the Lord comes back. Ezekiel said that this invasion will require God’s intervention, and that the invaders will be destroyed by a torrential Rainstorm with Hailstones and Thunderbolts.
Even though some of the invaders are said to come from the “remote parts of the north” (Ezek. 38:15), this does not have to mean that they are Russian. This can be said because of a similar prophecy that made the same claim, but turned out to be a country that was north of Israel, but not Russia. This is explained by Walid Shoebat in his book on End Times prophecy and also one his videos on youtube.
The Rapid drop in Oil prices. The price of oil and gas has dropped approximately 40 percent in the last six months. This is not because the supply has increased nearly that rapidly, nor is it because the demand for oil has gone down much: if at all in the past half-year. Rather the rapid price drop is for political reasons, and the rapid drop can best be explained as an economic war that is being waged against Russia and Iran -- as a means of applying pressure on their leaders to stop their nuclear program (in the case of Iran) and to pressure Russia's leader to stop his offensive takeover of Ukraine. More on this can be found Here. In summary, this pressure is mentioned in Ezekiel's prediction regarding the end times.
A 3rd Jewish Temple will be built. After God intervenes to save Israel from the Russian and Arab forces, the way for peace will be wide open, and for Israel to rebuild its 3rd Temple. This is because of the attack by Muslim forces that is talked about above, and because of the Earthquake that occurs and the fact that the Dome of the Rock will be a pile of rubble. See Ezek. 38:18-20; Isaiah 28:17; 30:30; 31:5-9; Rev. 16:21.
We say that a temple will be rebuilt before the Lord comes back because the man known as the antichrist will enter the Temple when he declares himself to be God (Dan. 7:21-27; 8:9-14; 9:27; 11:21-35; Matt. 24:15-31; 2 Thes. 2:1-12; Rev. 13-14) ... and for this man to sit in a temple, stop the animal sacrifices, and pretend to be God, a Temple of some sort must be built. 2,3
With regard to a 3rd temple it is said that its stones have been cut and are waiting to be assembled. We have also heard from a source in Israel that the Arc of the covenant has been found and brought back to Israel from Ethiopia: and that the stone tablets with the Ten Commandments on them are with it. 4
A lack of fresh water: The ground water in many parts of the world is slowly being depleted.5 See also Revelation 6:5-6, and Deut. 28:15-24.
The Microchip Implant: The rice-grained size RFID microchip has been in use for dogs and cats for over a decade. Such a “mark” is mentioned in the Book of Revelation, whereby only those who have it can buy or sell. This is because Cash will be eliminated, and all financial transactions done electronically. Those who fear God and know the Lord will refuse to accept such a mark: whether outwardly visible or not: Rev. 13, 14 and 20.
Fire from Heaven. The Book of Revelation also talks about a world leader who will deceive many because of some amazing things that he performs. One of these is referred to as “fire from heaven” in Revelation 13:13. This is perhaps a laser beam that comes from a satellite or the International Space Station.
A Talking Statue. Another sign that the coming world leader will perform involves a statue that can “speak”: Revelation 13:14-18. This will likely be a talking Robot or possibly an “image” of himself on TV.
We are also told that everyone who chooses to participate in the coming worldwide government will have to worship either this robot “image” or the “image” of the antichrist, and receive a “mark” that will identify them as loyal subjects of the (temporary) new world order. 6, 7
The Seven-Year “Land for Peace” Treaty. In January of 2007, a 7-year Land for Peace deal was struck between the Israelis and Palestinians. See also Dan. 9:27 and 11:21-45.
Echelon: An electronic system known as echelon allows the European Union to tap Cell Phones or home phones in the United States, and vice versa: at the touch of a few buttons. We suspect that this information gathering will be used for more than just to thwart terrorism -- as is alluded to in Daniel 8.
Increasing Fatherlessness: Not many know it yet, but in the U.S.A, 80-90% of mothers obtain Sole Legal Custody after a Divorce: often AFTER as much of their MONEY is confiscated. In Canada it is reported to be 98%, and Europe is almost as bad. See our Family Court page for more information.
When will the Rapture take place: Many believe that the rapture takes place before the Seven-Year Great Tribulation. In support of this we are told that many who know the Lord will be “rescued” from the coming wrath of God upon the earth (Dan. 12:1-4; Mal. 3:16-18; Col. 3:6; 1 Thes. 4:13-18; 5:9; 2 Thes. 2:3-12, Rev. 3:10) and that the antichrist will not be revealed until the restrainer is taken out of the way: 2 Thes. 2:6-9. This may occur when the “fullness of the Gentiles has come in” (Rom. 11:25) and God turns His focus to the land (and nation) of Israel; however, it may be that it happens after the Tribulation takes place. See the Link below on the Rapture for more on this topic.
Some believe that the rapture will happen before the Tribulation begins, others in the middle, and some on the last day, or the day that the sun goes dark: Matt. 24:29-31. If it occurs at the end, then many saints will be killed simply because they believe in Jesus, and that He is God's Son, and the heir of God's Kingdom: Rev. 13:7-10. See also Dan. 7:7-27, Joel 2:28-32, Amos 8:9, Rev. 6:9-17. George Washington’s Angelic Vision at Valley Forge also deals with the United States and the end times. 8, 9
Like a Thief in the Night: Although no one knows the exact hour of Christ’s return, Jesus told us to pay attention so that we are not caught off guard: Matt. 24:3-25:30; I John 2:28-3:3. If you know the Lord and have His Spirit living in you, then you should be serving Him in some way: even if all you can do is carry a Bible to church: Mal. 3:16-18.
We who know the Lord will overcome the death-curse that our mortal body is under because of our faith in Jesus and our testimony: NOT because of sinless perfection: 2 Cor. 5:1; I Peter 1:3-9; I John 1:6-10; 3:14; 4:4; 5:4-13; Rev. 12:11; Rom. 7:15-25; 8:9-11.

4. We learned this from someone went to Israel, and showed us pictures of a replica that the Israelis made of the
arc. The tour guide told their group that the arc was being kept at a secret location until the Temple is rebuilt.

Where are we Now?
Will there be a Pre-Tribulation Rapture?
