Friends, I found this nice list of recent Biblical signs from this website and decided to post them here as well. We should not be surprised at much of anything happening in 2020 as the Bible has foretold it.
Signs Regarding Israel and Its People:
Signs Regarding the Church:
Signs Regarding Society:
As part of God's foretelling, we understand that satan is “chomping at the bit,” waiting to unleash his nefarious plan. We may watch him move his pawns into place based on what the Bible tells us he is going to do.
The Bible connects these things to the worship of satan and his world system. Even during this upcoming time of trouble, most of humanity will cling to these things instead of turning to the one true God:
Now the rest of mankind... still did not repent of the works of their hands. They did not stop worshiping demons and idols of gold, silver, bronze, stone, and wood, which cannot see or hear or walk. Furthermore, they did not repent of their murder, sorcery, sexual immorality, and theft. (Revelation 9:20-21)
Signs of War:
Lastly, I present to you some additional signs that there is some disagreement as to whether or not they apply:
A Preview of Signs to Come:
God has clearly spelled out what will occur during the final seven-to-ten years of this age. These have not yet occurred; however, previews have been given! The stage is set for them to occur in full force very swiftly—as soon as God's restraint on them is lifted:
A preview of “birth pangs”:
I understand that we are seeing wars, earthquakes, famines, pestilences, various terrors and signs in the heavens even today. They even seem to be increasing in frequency and severity. As of yet, these are still isolated events. The Coronavirus (Covid19) Pandemic is coming close to a global event, but the other signs aren't occurring globally on top of it--yet. Think of it as grave foreshadowing... What we see now is disruptive, but what will occur then is incomprehensible!
...when you see all these things, you know that he is near, at the very gates. (Matthew 14:33)
The book of Revelation is meant to REVEAL, not conceal. It's challenging to understand at times, yes, but God has hidden keys throughout the whole body of Scripture that unlock meaning. It's the most amazing and beautiful puzzle which ties together the entire revelation of God to humanity.
When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. (John 16:13)
What I write here is my best understanding from Scripture, but it is a human understanding, and thus will be flawed in some points. I urge you to search the Scripture for yourself to see if these things are so, praying for wisdom!
It is the glory of God to conceal things, but the glory of kings is to search things out. (Proverbs 25:2)
The lists above are not exhaustive, but I hope you find them helpful as you watch and wait for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ!
