There are other signs that are presently all around us. But many of us still cannot discern the times. One person told me in conversation in light to what the Holy Bible says about the end-times. He says, “things will get better. “And my reply was, ‘things will get better after all these thing takes place and when you are right with God and eternity begins.’
Mathew 24:3-5 The disciples came to Jesus privately, ‘When will this happen. And what will be the sign of Your coming and of the end of the age?’ Jesus answered: ‘Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, claiming, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many.
These are happening. They have been for awhile now. Notice first, the word, “will,” meaning all these things are definite and true, they will take place regardless of any popular belief or personal opinions. Remember Jim Jone’s of the 70s? Remember David koresh of the late 80s? These were people that claimed that they are the Messiah that is to come back. But they are dead now, with their false hopes and doctrines. But what is happening in the now?
On Aug 19th, 2002, Sergie Torop, Known to his followers as, “Vissarion,” came by horseback to the Siberian Hamlet of Petrovlovka near the border of Mongolia, delivering his annual address to thousands of Russians who believe that he is Jesus. He himself claims that he is the Christ returned. Notably, this false Christ was a traffic cop in a small Russian town, that has thousands of followers (according to the Sydney Morning Herald)
Now we know that his claims are false. For the Holy Word of God states in serveral Scriptures specifically pertaining tohow Jesus the Son of God will return:
Acts 1:11 This same Jesus who ascended from the dead, into Heaven, will so come in the same manner as you saw Him go into Heaven.
In the book of Daniel 7:13 says, In my vision at night I looked, and there before me was one like a Son of Man, coming with the clouds of Heaven.
Revelation 1:7 Behold, He is coming with clouds, and every eye will see Him, even they who pierced Him (all man kind will see Jesus, the Son of God, in all of His Fathers glory, even to the ones whom have denied Jesus, the Son of God in the last days). And all the tribes of the earth will mourn because of Him. Even so, Amen.
This is just to name and claim a few Scriptures. As we have read, Jesus the Christ the Son of God will come only by one way, and not by human means. Jesus Christ will not inhabit a human body either, known as the incarnation of Christ. Jesus will come by the way of Heaven, in His Fathers time table and not our own.
Also these Scriptures again, are to be taken both literally and symbolically. Just as a reminder, these are the elements at work in the Scriptures, especially, the prophetic Word. With that being said, the word, “Cloud,” is also meaning symbolically as “judgment.” This is according to the original Hebrew translation of the Old Testament. So Jesus is not only coming literally in the clouds, but also to bring judgment.
Another false Christ is in Hazleton, Pennsylvania, Is hidden away in the Appalachian Mountains, A wandering preacher who dresses in a white robe and barefooted, who has similar features of the Kids book Jesus. Catholics claim that, “They see in him Jesus-like qualities.” And attracting allot of attention in the U.S. He calls himself “What’s your name,” But his real name is Carl Joseph. He refuses to talk about his past except to say, “that he’s been wandering for nine years.” This false Christ has left people, ah-struck, (According to BBC News.)
The Book of Zechariah States definitely the location when the True Christ, Lord Jesus will be, when He steps foot on earth for the second and last time.
Zechariah 14:4 And in that day (in the great tribulation period), His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives which faces Jerusalem on the east. And the Mount of Olives shall be split in two from east to west, making a very large valley.
This really comes to show how relevant the Holy Spirit inspired Holy Word of God is in today’s culture and times as well as standards. And it comes to show how craftily the devil uses ignorance of the Holy and powerful Scriptures for his own gain, to destroy the people. Jesus will come in such a way that all will know. Not in places here and there. It’s not left up to our own imaginations as Jesus Christ specifically taught in:
Matthew 24:23-28 At that time if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Messiah!’ or, ‘There he is!’ do not believe it. For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. See, I have told you ahead of time. “So if anyone tells you, ‘There he is, out in the wilderness,’ do not go out; or, ‘Here he is, in the inner rooms,’ do not believe it. For as lightning that comes from the east is visible even in the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. Wherever there is a carcass, there the vultures will gather.
The God of Abraham; Isaac; and Jacob is the same God who sent His only begotten Son, Lord Jesus the Christ into this world by the virgin birth in the flesh of man, conceived by the Holy Spirit. To die For our sins (for those who believe) and risen from the dead on the third day of His death. Ascended back into heaven in bodily form and sits at God Almighty’s right hand.
This is the same God who will also send His Only Begotten Son back to this earth to judge, and to reconcile His treasured possessions, the Jews, back to Himself and to God His Father. The way that this will happen is by the way of the Holy Scriptures. The Holy Word of God that so many hate! It is the absolute final authority, regardless!
