The Disciples, even Jesus, used prophecy to evangelize to the world.  We are living in the last days and we should understand prophecy as well.

end of daysTo be sure, this list of 50 only scratches the surface as there are many more prophecies related to end time events to which we are seeing now. The most important event is the “convergence” of all of these things listed as well as many others. We don’t know the time or day in which we will see Jesus come back, but Jesus did say that we will know the season and not be surprised by these things (Matthew 24:33). As for the lost folks, well, it will take them completely by surprise, but not us, at least those that are not willfully Biblically illiterate or spiritually blind (1 Thessalonians 5:1-5). Prophecy is one of, if not the best tool for ministering the Good News to the lost world.

The Apostles used it as well as the Disciples to open the eyes of those living in darkness to see the light of Jesus Christ and I believe that we should not put down this tool – even Jesus used prophecy to talk about Himself.

The best way to look at the numerous signs of the end times is to put them into categories.

The six major categories are:

  • The signs of nature
  • The signs of society
  • Spiritual signs
  • The signs of world politics
  • The signs of technology
  • The signs of Israel
