Matthew 16:3; Luke 12:56; 21:25-28
All of the terrible upheaval in the Middle East, and satanic activity in other parts of the world are mere foreshocks of the terrible Tribulation Period which is even at the doors. The enemy is even now setting the mood for the Tribulation by spreading a spirit of fear in the earth, through various calamities taking place. You know a forest fire is getting closer when you feel the hot breath of it coming on the wind.
Winter, with all the hardships it brings to nature, does not normally hit suddenly. Autumn is the prelude to winter, a gentle harbinger of a far worse chill to come. Weeks before the first snowfall, you notice a bracing nip in the air. Tree leaves begin to die, and fall to the ground. Wild birds and animals make last-minute preparations to ensure their survival over the long winter months.
Catastrophic news events portend far worse calamities to come. The spiritual atmosphere of the earth is growing ever more grim, and My people are the only ones who have anything to smile about. Sinners feverishly party the night away to forget about life. But beneath their jaded grins lurks an awareness that they truly are on the eve of destruction and this world is the only so-called “paradise” they’ll ever know.
Even wild birds and beasts depend on Me to sustain them through winter. Even “dumb” animals heed My warnings of impending danger and flee from it before it arrives. If only people would turn their lives and their worries over to Me, they could be hidden in the Day of Wrath which is almost here.
Even manmade things can remind you of the need for vigilance. Just as you can feel the rumblings of an approaching train by standing on the tracks, discerning saints know that they have not long before a dense curtain of darkness falls upon this world, and the Age of Grace is over.
