"And wisdom and
knowledge shall be the stability of thy times,..."
The fact that we are living in the time of the end, is evidently
brought forth by the times around us. The scripture here let's us
know, in order for men to have stability in their times. We must
have wisdom and knowledge from God. By having a clear understanding
of the times we can better prepare oursleves and have peace in the
mist of a world filled with chaos. The Signs of the Times is truly
that wisdom and knowledge from God, that brings security and a
present hope in God, to know that He is still in control.
What is a Sign?
Signs Def: 1.) Indication of a coming event, 2.) a marker that
precedes an event, 3.) something that is an outward manifestation of
"And as He sat upon the Mount of Olives, the disciples cames unto
Him privately, saying, tell us, when shall these things be? And what
shall be the sign of thy coming, and the end of the World?" (Matthew
The question is asked today, are we living in the last days? The
answer to this question I believe is a most definitely yes. This
answer comes with strong certaninity, based on careful study of
God's word, and the events of our times and generation. God has
through his prophetic word, forecasted the times in which we live.
To the child of God the Times and Seasons shouldn't come as any
shock, but rather as an indicator of the soon return of our Lord.
But this my friend is not the case, many today sad to say even in
christian circles stand in fear and awk wondering what is going on.
This is a direct result of not being taught prophecy or a fear of
studing God's Prophetic word. This problem in the church is not a
new one, our Lord dealt with it in His own generation.
The Indictment against the Church
"The Pharisees also with the Sadducees came, and tempting,
desired Him that He would show them a sign from Heaven."
"He answered and said unto them, when it is evening, ye say, it
will be fair weather; for the sky is red."
"And in the morning, it will be foul weather today: for the sky
is red and lowering. O ye hypocrites, Ye can disern the face of the
sky; but can not discern the Signs of the Times?"
Here Jesus rebuked sharp, the Pharisees and the Sadducees,
because they could discern the sky and weather, and prepared their
lives according to that days forecast. But they couldn't spiritually
discern the Signs of the Times. Today many in the church and world
prepare their lives everyday on the words of their weather man's
forecast, but never discerning the Spiritual climate in which they
live. This is an indictment against the church and it's Leaders. As
the church spend time in God's Prophetic word, it will awake out of
it's cold state, and discern the hour and prepare it's self to meet
a Holy God. The Signs of the Times are indicators of Christ's soon
return, and the end of the world. Every child of God should know
what God has predicted for the last days. Many are giving up the
faith, because they don't have any understanding of the times.
"And when these things begin to come to pass, then look
up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption
Even though the Signs of the Times reveals, some terrible
things, and even the beginnings of sorrows, there is still an
underline hope that is the stablity and strength for every christian
in these times.

pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand."
The Apostle Paul received from God a revelation, concerning the
last days. He spoke of the last days as a time of peril, or perilous
times. This can be found in 2 Timothy 3:1-7,
2 Timothy 3:1-7
1.) "This know also, that in the last days perilous times

covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents,

One of the greatest signs of our day, occured on May 14, 1948,
when the nation of Israel was reestablished after nearly 2,000 years
of desolation. The Word of God prophesies the future for this nation
in the latter days. Israel's birth in 1948 was by divine
appointment. Our generation is the only generation since the time of
Christ that has seen God's chosen people in possession of their
In the study of this sign we will examine:
A.) The Restoration of Israel - Amos 9:13,14,15, Ezekiel 36:8-11
B.) The Regathering to the Jews to their homeland - Ezekiel
11:17, 20:34,41, 28:25,26 34:13-16, 36:8-12,24,28, 38:8
C.) The Blooming and Budding of the Land of Israel - Isaiah 27:6,
Ezekiel 36:8-11, Amos 9:13-15, Ezekiel 36:30,34-36
D.) The Rebuilding of the waste cities - Amos 9:14, Isaiah 61:4,
We will also look at prophecies regarding:
1.) The Dead Sea Scroll
2.) The restoration of the Levitical
3.) The restoration of the Animal
4.) The Dead Sea Wealth
5.) The restoration of the
6.) The restoration of the Hebrew Language
The Restoration of latter-day
The Word of God prophesies the latter-day restoration of Babylon.
The Scriptures teaches that Babylon will one day come back into the
mind of God, and he will bring swift destruction upon that city. The
account of this is found in the book of Revelation 18:1-24. The city
of Babylon was destroyed centuries years ago by the Persian kingdom,
and this prophecy has been the topic of much controversy. Until our
present day there has been no literal city of Bablylon in existence,
but God's Word prophesied that it would one day return! Is the
present day restoration of Babylon by King Hussin a latter-day
fulfillment of Bible Prophecy? You be the judge as you look at the
documentation covered in subjection of the signs.
In this Introduction to the Signs of the Times, we have given
just a small amount of scriptures that point to the Signs of the
Times as indicators for the last days. As you journey on in this
study we will give you document evidence from current event around
us, but put into a Biblical perspective. Your news watching will not
be the same, you will view the news with a prophetic eye. Enjoy your
time of study.
