We reserve a few minutes each Sunday to discuss current trends that seem to be predicted in the Bible.
We are futurists. We interpret the unfulfilled prophetic portions of the Book of the Revelation and the Book of Daniel, and all other unfulfilled prophecies, as future events in a literal, physical, apocalyptic, and global context.
Biometrics, Artificial Intelligence, cashless commerce, the manipulation of human DNA, surveillance, global government, and the exponential growth of human knowledge are all areas we see corroborating the End Times prophecies of the Bible.
News that reminds us of the Days of Noah peaks our interest. Jesus said,
Mat 24:37 But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.
Mat 24:38 For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark,
The Lord highlighted “marrying and giving in marriage.” Going back to Genesis, the opening four verses of chapter six describe the marriages Jesus meant:
Gen 6:2 … the sons of God saw the daughters of men, that they were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves of all whom they chose…
Gen 6:4 There were giants on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown.
Fallen angels married & mated with human women. Their offspring were “giants,” called in the Bible Nephilim. These giants were agile warriors, upwards of twelve to fifteen feet tall. They were wiped out by the global flood. Nevertheless you read of them again in Israel’s conquest of the Promised Land. Nephilim were eradicated during the reign of King David.
This news story captured my attention: Massive “Dragon Man” skull found in China.
A gigantic fossilized skull that was hidden in a well in China for 90 years has just been discovered by scientists…
The skull was originally found in 1933 by Chinese laborers building a bridge in Harbin, a northern Chinese city, during the Japanese occupation… To prevent the skull from falling into Japanese hands, it was wrapped and hidden in an abandoned well. It was only rediscovered in 2018 when the old man who originally hid it told his grandson, shortly before his death.
The remarkably well-preserved fossil has been dubbed “Dragon man,” for the northern Chinese province where the skull was found, the “Black Dragon River” region.
One of the most remarkable aspects of the Harbin cranium is its massive size, which, at 9 inches long and more than 6 inches wide, is significantly larger than the modern human skull.
I’m not saying this skull is the remains of a Nephilim.
I am saying that Jesus predicted that the End Times would hearken us back to the Days of Noah.
We believe the resurrection and rapture of the church is imminent. It could happen any moment; nothing needs to happen before it. It will happen before the Great Tribulation.
Jesus will return in the clouds.
He will raise the dead in Christ.
He will transform the bodies of living believers to glorified, resurrection bodies.
We will all join Him in Heaven while the earth endures one final seven-year campaign of severe evangelism.
Are you ready for the rapture? If not, Get ready; Stay ready; Keep looking up.
Ready or not, Jesus is coming!
