“WARS AND RUMORS OF WARS”

“AND YE SHALL HEAR OF WARS AND RUMORS OF WARS”

May 8, 2019

So, how many years have you been hearing “of wars and rumors of wars? Perhaps you are old enough to remember the major event seventy-one years ago in May, 1948. Perhaps you may not remember the date, personally, but know its importance to the nation of Israel. The past seventy-one years has not been a time filled with peace for the nation of Israel nor the world. With increasing frequency we are brought face to face with a reminder of the description given by Jesus of the events that will identify “the beginning of sorrows” (Matt. 24:8). Today is no exception.

In a story posted on The Jerusalem Post website: www.jpost.com, the following headline can be found: “Islamic Jihad Leader Expects War With Israel To Break Out Next Summer”. The article appears in today’s online posting, May 8, 2019.

As recorded within the story, the following account is shared, “The resistance in Gaza is fully prepared for any war,” Nahala said, adding that when the ceasefire was reached they were about to shoot rockets at Tel Aviv.”

Obviously, “wars and rumors of wars” have been in existence for years and years and years. This latest threat, along with numerous others, just adds to the growing list. However, at some point in time “the beginning of sorrows (birth pains)” will give way to the actual delivery of the Tribulation Period.

As we witness with a passionate and watchful eye, the increasing frequency of the very signs Jesus declared would identify “the beginning of sorrows”, let us do so with the hope that these might be the ones that usher in the time leading to His return.

Matthew 24:36
But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels in heaven, buy my Father only.
