End-times scholar Hal Lindsey says, “I am amazed at the speed with which events are moving today. The Bible tells us that in the last days, the ‘signs’ of the times will appear with ever-increasing frequency and intensity. In our modern lingo, maybe we could describe this phenomena as the signs of the times on steroids!” What are these signs?
One of the most significant signs is that Israel has become the center of geopolitics—and Jerusalem the most sought after real estate on the planet. And considering Iran’s threat of nuclear attack, if Israel strikes preemptively, it would surely destabilize the world's political and financial institutions, necessitating world restructuring, most probably in the form of a one-world government made possible by new technology, and setting the stage for a messiah-like person who will promise to restore peace and order.
Of course there are other signs, most of which are too disheartening to speak of. No wonder Jesus said, “When you see these things happening, look up!” How else can we not let them get us down?
