7 Prophecies Have Fulfilled; Have You Welcomed the Return of the Lord Jesus?

Zheng Xun

Now it is the end of the last days. Many brothers and sisters, who truly believe in the Lord and wait for Him coming back, must have such questions: The Lord Jesus has said, “And, behold, I come quickly” (Revelation 22:12). He has promised us to return. Has He come back yet? How can we know whether He has returned or not?

1. The Love of Believers Becomes Cold

Matthew 24:12 records: “And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.” Nowadays, in the denominations and sects, believers covet the world in general, and few devote themselves to working for the Lord. Some of them are engaged in business, some are busy with making money by opening factories. Moreover, the pastors and elders scheme against one another, have jealous disputes with each other. They even form factions, steal offerings, and commit adultery. Therefore, the followers become colder and colder in their faith and love and churches get more desolate now.

2.The Occurrence of Wars, Famines and Earthquakes

The Bible says: “And you shall hear of wars and rumors of wars: see that you be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows” (Matthew 24:6-8). In recent years, the disasters are getting worse and worse all over the world. It is horrifying that the earthquakes, floods, droughts, fires, famines and plagues have occurred frequently and spread everywhere. The situation of the world is constantly changing and turbulent; the wars, violence and terrorist attacks take place frequently and escalate unceasingly. For example, in April 2016, India suffered from the worst drought in the past 40 years, leading to over 300,000,000 people grappling with a shortage of drinking water. From 2015 to 2016, there were a series of terrorist attacks in Europe, Africa and the Middle East and so on, which led to countless casualties. In 2008, an 8.0-magnitude earthquake occurred in Wenchuan County, Sichuan Province, China, and nearly 70,000 people died and nearly 18,000 missing. According to the natural phenomenon, as the crust of the earth thickens, the earthquakes should have been fewer and fewer. But now the earthquakes occur more often, which puzzles scientists.

3. The return of Israel

Matthew 24:32-33 says: “Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near: So likewise you, when you shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.” Luke 21:29-32 records: “And he spoke to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees; When they now shoot forth, you see and know of your own selves that summer is now near at hand. So likewise you, when you see these things come to pass, know you that the kingdom of God is near at hand. Truly I say to you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled.” In May 1948, Israel was recovered. Shortly after David Ben-Gurion announced the establishment of Israel at Tel Aviv on May 14, 1948, Soviet Union recognized it soon and set up an embassy thereon May 26, and later supported Israel in many ways. On May 11, 1949, Israel was accepted officially as a member of the United Nations with the support of Soviet Union and America.

4. The Powers of the Heavens Have Been Shaken

Matthew 24:29 says: “Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken.” Astronomers frequently publish these news: Some new stars appears, while some are falling, meteor crash often happen. On Tuesday, May 17, 2016, the early morning sky briefly lit up with the brilliant flash of a fireball—that is, an extremely bright meteor—over much of eastern New England states. At 9:15 a.m. of February 15, 2013, Chelyabinsk, Urals Federal region, Russia, suffered the strike of an asteroid, and a huge shock wave and explosion caused 1,491 people injured and plenty of glass broken. It was said by scientists that the diameter of the asteroid was about 15 meters and it weighed about 7,000 metric tons. These have fulfilled the prophecy “the stars shall fall from heaven.

5. The Gospel Has Been Preached to the Ends of the Earth

Matthew 24:14 records: “And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness to all nations; and then shall the end come.” “And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world” means when all nations have heard the gospel of the Lord, He will return (which doesn’t mean everyone has heard it or believed in Him.) After the Lord Jesus completed the redemptive work through His crucifixion, the Holy Spirit began to lead God’s chosen people to testify the Lord Jesus. By the radio stations, networks, books, gospel tracts, missionary work and so on, the gospel has been spread more and more widely and preached among all nations finally. Thus, the Christians have already be throughout the world. Even in China, which is ruled by an atheist party, many people have accepted the gospel of the Lord Jesus. Therefore, the gospel of the Lord Jesus’ redemption of mankind has spread to the ends of the universe. Dear brothers and sisters, just think about this: Is there any country or region in the world where people haven’t heard the gospel of the Lord Jesus?

6. The Emergence of Heresies

Matthew 24:4-5 says: “And Jesus answered and said to them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.” Now many heresies and evil cults occur in the religious world of every country. They have no truths at all, can’t supply believers with truth and life, much less bring people any edification or benefit.

7. The Appearance of False Christs and Antichrists

Matthew 24:23-26 says: “Then if any man shall say to you, See, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; so that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before. Why if they shall say to you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.” As we know, now deception from false Christs occurs in every country. For example, in Korea, many are fooled into believing false Christs without discernment. All false Christs can do is to perform some simple signs and wonders and preach some paradoxical fallacies to deceive others. In addition, they can’t express the truth to solve man’s problem of committing sins and then confessing, nor can they save mankind from corruption. According to the prophecy of the Bible, when the Lord Jesus returns to do His work, many false Christs and deceivers will appear at the same time to imitate and disturb God’s work. And so, when the false Christs begin appearing, it means that God has already returned and He has arrived in secret. But the people just don’t know about it. This is an opportunity for us to seek and to investigate God’s work in the last days. Brothers and sisters, for us to welcome the Lord Jesus’ return, we must know how to tell the true Christ from the false ones. This relates directly to our rapture before the throne of God. Then how to recognize the true Christ is the truth we need most right now. Can You Tell the True Christ From the False Ones?

From the facts above, we can see it obviously that most of the biblical prophecies of the Lord’s return have come to pass, from which we know the Lord has already come back. But many people may ask: Since the Lord has come back, why haven’t we welcome Him? But have you ever thought about whether there are some deviations in welcoming the return of the Lord? Regarding the return of the Lord, many people take guarding against false Christs as their priority. They pay no attention to how to hear God’s voice like wise virgins or how to welcome the lord’s return. Instead, they cling to their notions and imaginations, thinking anyone who witnesses the Lord Jesus’ return is false. Because they don’t seek or investigate, they will miss the chance to welcome the return of the Lord!

  1. Lots of things have happened but not everything. Mathew 24:27 For just as the lightning comes from the east and flashes as far as the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man., be very careful about what you say in this area he hasnt come back yet, but it will be soon. just a little over a year ago I was thinking one night, God I hope I am not here before the civil war starts, (in the United States, we are prime with all the political corruption), A quite voice said Dont worry, I am coming soon, sooner than you think. here was a little more but you get the gist of it. When Christ returns everyone will see him, there will be no mistake and it will, as he put it, be like lightening stretching from the east to the west. Dont worry, you may not believe it but you wont miss it.

      From Our Daily Devotionals

    Exodus 6:2 – And GOD – EL spoke to Mosheh and said to him, “I am YHWH.”
    (All scripture quoted from NKJV)
    The Name of our EL (GOD) is YHWH. It is quoted and explained several times in the scripture especially in the OT and also in the book of Psalm, refered as ‘LORD GOD’.
    Firstly, consider the expression we often use to praise EL (GOD) –“HALLELUYAH!”

    In Psalm 146:1; 147:1; 148:1; 149:1; 150:1, in the NKJV, it is mentioned that
    “Praise the LORD means HALLELUYAH.
    1. What does Halleluyah mean?
    The explanation from Strong’s – Many of the references in Psalm involve the compound word “Hallelu Yah” translated, which literally means – “You must all praise YAH.”
    As mentioned, that, the name of our Heavenly Father is YHWH, one may wonder how can we pronounce just letters, consonants without vowels for sound, and then call it a name. These letters are in Hebrew. To understand and know the pronunciation, we can see it clearly in the scripture:
    Psalm 68:4 – Sing to GOD, sing praises to His name; Extol Him who rides on the clouds by His name YAH, and rejoice before Him.
    Isaiah 12:2 – Behold GOD is my salvation, I will trust and not be afraid; for YAH, the LORD, is my strength and song; He has become my salvation.
    Isaiah 26:4 – Trust in the LORD forever, for in YAH, the LORD, is everlasting strength.
    In the scripture quoted above, you will notice that the name of GOD, LORD is YAH. The explanation to this is that, it is the shortened form of YHWH or the poetic form of GOD’s
    full name.
    2. What is GOD’s full Name or how do we pronounce HIS Name?
    From the above scriptures we come to know that if the shortened form of YHWH is YAH, then the sound of H is ‘ah’, therefore YAH.
    If the sound of H is ‘ah’ then Y W it is then – YAH WAH.
    It has been found that in Hebrew, the letter ‘W’ is pronounced as the sound of a double U and U, i.e., UU U. If we now put this understanding together, we find, proved from the Scripture that the name of our GOD is YHWH – YAHUWAH.
    Some may say that it is YAHWEH. The letter ‘E’ cannot be applied since it is mentioned in the scriptures that YAH is the shortened form or poetic form of YHWH, where the letter ‘H’ is mentioned twice.
    To further solidify our understanding, we can see how our (LORD GOD) YHWH – YAHUWAH changes the name of, Abraham and his wife’s, in Genesis 17:5, 15 –
    Genesis 17: 5 No longer shall you name be called Abram, but your name shall be Abraham; for I have made you a father of many nations. v. 15 Then GOD said to Abraham, “As for Sarai your wife, you shall not call her name Sarai, but Sarah shall be her name.
    We can clearly see, how our (LORD GOD), YHWH – YAHUWAH, has added a portion of His name to Abram and Sarai, thus calling them Abraham and Sarah.
    Adam Clarke’s Commentary states it well: “GOD [associates] the patriarch more nearly to Himself, by thus imparting to him a portion of His own name.”
    Well, it is so well proven that our GOD YHWH’s Name is YAHUWAH.
    Exo.6;15 – Moreover GOD said to Moses, “Thus you shall say to the children of Israel: ‘YHWH EL of your fathers, the EL (GOD) of Abraham, the EL (GOD) of Isaac, and the EL (GOD) Yacob, has sent me to you. This is My Name forever, and this is My memorial to all generations.’”
    Thirdly, in Hebrew there is no letter ‘J’.
    So we know for sure that YHWH can never ever be ‘Jehovah’.
    But many justify saying that it is in English, and so, address our Heavenly Father with a wrong name. And 500 years ago, there was no letter J and V in the English alphabets. There were
    only 24 alphabets in English.
    Let us not justify by our own limited understanding. Let us know and understand the Scripture rightly, and call our GOD and Maker of heaven and earth by His True name which HE Himself
    declared to the first man in Genesis 2:4!!
