PROPHECY HEADLINES: Israel warns that ISIS may turn its guns against Israel and Jordan | Israel may face increased proxy wars following Iran deal | President Rivlin: ISIS cells already inside Israel
PROPHECY BOOTCAMP: Our topic for today is titled “Hell on Earth (Part 1)” from Dr. Ed Hindson’s book “Revelation: Unlocking the Future.”
The invasion of Jerusalem by the Gentiles is accompanied by the rise of the two witnesses. The scene shifts to the earthly Jerusalem, which is the center stage of the coming conflict with the beast. The witnesses are martyred and then miraculously resurrected.
As if things were not bad enough, all hell breaks loose in Revelation chapter 11. Satan’s opposition to the two witnesses reaches a dramatic climax in their execution, resurrection, and ascension into heaven. Then a cataclysmic earthquake results in the collapse of the major world powers. All the forces of heaven and hell are engaged in the great end-times drama.
OCCUPY TILL I COME: We are continuing our journey through the book, “Coming Events and Present Duties,” by J.C. Ryle. This section is titled, “Watch” (Part 24) based on the parable of the foolish and wise virgins in Matthew 25:1-13. J.C. Ryle writes:
Picture your own house, your own family, your own fire-side. What will be found there when Jesus returns? Picture, above all, your own feelings, your own state of mind. And then, remember, that this is the end towards which the world is hastening. This is the way in which the world’s affairs will be wound up. This is an event which may possibly happen in our own time. And surely you cannot avoid the conclusion that the second coming of Christ is no mere curious speculation. It is an event of vast practical importance to your own soul.
