100% CONFIDENCE of Christ's Nearness and Imminent Return
After Jesus detailed the End Time scenario by describing many prophecies which would come together JUST BEFORE His physical return, He made several concluding statements. His statements were emphatic and give 100% assurance to His true followers to recognize BOTH His Nearness and physical return.
Any doubtful speculation heard today about "Christ's Nearness to THIS GENERATION" is by those who STILL do not 'SEE' the End Time prophecies lined up perfectly today IN PLAIN VIEW, and as detailed with jolting clarity at Heisnear.com.
The PRIME passage of Jesus by which today's believers can be 100% CONFIDENT is, "Even so, you too, when you see all these things, KNOW He is near, even right at the door!" (Matthew 24:33)
Without question, "ALL" of the signs foretold by the Lord Jesus are lined up today simultaneously and world- wide in scope, a huge KEY. Never before in his- tory have ALL foretold End Time prophecies lined up together and globally in scope AS THEY ARE TODAY. This removes ALL doubt about Christ's imminent return.
In addition to Matthew 24:33's guarantee for believers to "know" Christ is near, Jesus also gave 100% confidence to End Time believers in another state- ment saying, "Truly I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place."
Here again, this guarantees that the 'generation' which sees "ALL" these things take place together and globally in scope, will ALSO see the fulfillment of the very return of Christ Himself.
This includes the major End Time prophecy already witnessed by 'this generation' in 1948 with the Re-Birth of Israel as a nation. This fulfilled prophecy started the prophetical time-clock ticking for all other foretold prophecies to quickly line up TOGETHER and GLOBALLY in scope as, incredibly, they NOW have.
In fact, ALL End Time prophecies are AT AN APEX right now and ready for fulfillment. Literally, "THIS GENERATION" is now living in the rapidly narrowing gap of time adjacent to the very 'start' of the final 7 Year Tribulation period.
Today's discussions sometimes heard about 'How many years constitute an actual "generation" according to the Bible?' are interesting. However, they are com- pletely secondary to Jesus' #1 criteria for the believer to have 100% confidence of His Nearness. Namely, "When you see ALL these things, KNOW He is near, even right at the door." (Matthew 24:33)
Today's Blind Guides and Blind Ministers in America
Although the Lord's criteria to WATCH FOR makes it simple and clear in "knowing" He is near, today's popularized BUT BLIND and naturally-minded prophecy authors/speakers have continually made it a huge mystery, and have misled the body of Christ. >>
How many self-serving Blind TV Preachers and so-called 'prophets' today can be heard continually talking of "passing the torch to the NEXT genera- tion" while leaving out ANY mention of the MAJOR prophecies lined up right now ? [ Link below ]
Epitomizing today's spiritual blindness is a recent quote by Bible Translators who rightly stated that it could take "at least 15 more years to finish" their current translating and publishing of the entire Bible into text-book form, for the remaining 3rd world countries.
But, their huge error is their publicly-stated conclusion that "Christ could not return until they've finished" their efforts. [ News Links below ]
This major blunder misdirects God's people (again) to remain blind to the Nearness of Christ TODAY and, in fact, contradicts the Bible itself !
Why? Because Jesus did NOT say that "the entire Bible" would be translated into 'book form' just before His return.
In fact, He stated that "the Gospel" itself "will be preached to the whole world, and then the end will come." (Matthew 24:14). This specifically shows that JUST BEFORE His return, then the 'GOSPEL' (NOT the "entire Bible in book form") will have been shared and 'preached' into the ears of the final souls on earth, providing them their own opportunity to 'hear' (not 'read') the GOSPEL and GOOD NEWS of eternal salvation in Christ as Savior and Lord.
In fact, this is NOW being carried out today with missionaries who physically are sharing the GOSPEL and 'preaching' it to 3rd world countries who have not yet heard the Good News of Christ and of His death on the cross, His burial and His resurrection. Also, satellite TV is being used mightily in 3rd world countries now to 'preach the GOSPEL' like never before.
How much faster can the GOSPEL be "preached" and heard today in the final months and years before Christ's imminent return, compared to this generation waiting another "15 to 20 more years" for today's Blind Guides to "finish their publishing"!
Unless today's BLIND GUIDES, TRANSLATORS AND flashy TV MINISTERS' spiritual eyes snap open quickly to the Nearness of Christ, then God's people may have already been raptured and sat down in heaven at the Marriage Supper of the Lamb by the time they finally 'finish' translating the entire Bible from Genesis to Revelation.
Besides, Jesus did NOT say "when you see all these things" lined up together as they are TODAY.... then it'll be another 10, 15 or 20 more years till He returns!
But, He said we would "know He is NEAR !"
It bears repeating: ALL MAJOR Bible prophecies are right NOW at a prophetical APEX at this crucial time in world history, CONFIRMING the very Nearness of Christ precisely as the Lord instructed HIs follow- ers to "KNOW" ...... in THIS GENERATION !
