End Time Events - The Miscellaneous SignsWritten by Michael Bradley
Continued from page 1
5. Here is verse about end time prophecy being sealed up until end of time - at which time this verse implies that God will then be opening up our understanding of it. This is an angel speaking to Daniel in Old Testament after he just got done giving him visions and knowledge of what was coming at end of times.
And he said, "Go your way, Daniel, for words are closed up and sealed till time of end ... and none of wicked shall understand, but wise shall understand." (Daniel 12:9) All of above are what I call miscellaneous signs that will start to take place as we start to approach time of Jesus' 2nd coming to our earth. The next 7 are specific events that will take place in perfect chronological order. Only one of these events has come to pass at this time, other 6 have not.
The 7 year Great Tribulation will be countdown to when Jesus will come back. This 7 year Great Tribulation will be last 7 years on earth before Jesus comes back to us in His second coming. There’s an event that will occur right in middle of Great Tribulation called "Abomination of Desolation." Once this events takes place, Bible tells us that there will then be exactly 42 months before Jesus comes back to our earth for His second coming - three and half years from time of this one event. The "Abomination of Desolation" will be when Antichrist seats himself up in rebuilt Jewish Temple to proclaim himself to be God.
This event will be very easy to pick up once it happens with technology that we now have in place to pick up news events as it is actually occurring throughout world. In my next series of end time articles, I will give a brief explanation of other 7 key events that will be occurring - with one of them having already occurred.
This is 2nd part of a 22 part series on end times.
