9-12-2021 “ANTICHRIST’S, EARTHQUAKES AND PANDEMICS!” Matthew 24:3-8

This week Bro. Leo continues us on a study of the Jesus you never knew by looking at the dual prophesy from Jesus in Matt.24.

In Matt.24:3-8, 15 Jesus is prophesying of both the destruction of the Temple of Jerusalem and the 7 years of tribulation of the end times. During the first 3-1/2 years of the tribulation there will be many antichrists, rumors of wars, nations against nations vs.8. In vs.15 and 21 are the final 3-1/2 years of the tribulation. Notice in vs.13 and 14 Jesus is not talking about salvation , He is talking about those folks being saved from the destruction of Jerusalem.

During the current Church age there are several precursors to the events of the 7 years of tribulation. In 1John 4:1-3 we see that there have been the spirit of antichrist on Earth since the Church age began. The spirit of antichrist is anything that “exalteth himself above all that is called God” or opposes God. We see this spirit in the USA increasing daily(Rev.12:12).

In Matt.24:7 the word “earthquake” is translated from the Greek word “seismos” which means a shaking or upheaval; any natural upheaval, such as forest fires, floods, storms, tornados/hurricanes, earthquakes. Paul tells us in Rom.8:18-22 that we should be expecting the rapture along with “all” of creation. These upheavals are birthing pains in creation in expectation of deliverance into a new day. Jesus gives us the principle in John 16:20-21.

In Matt.24:7 the word “famine” is translated from the Greek word “limos” which means a scarcity of anything; food, gas, oil, water, supplies. Scarcity induces panic, which we are seeing now and have seen in the past.

In Matt.24:7 the word “pestilences” is translated from the Greek word “loimos” which means plague, disease-spreadable or communicable regional or global. We’re seeing these increase in the last few hundred years.

Eze.7:1-3, 15 explains that these are happening as a sign of God’s judgement on a Nation. 2Chr. 7:13-14 tells us what we need to do in order for God to save us and our Nation (Dan.9:3-8).

Currently we are in the same shape as the folks during the flood of Noah’s time (Rom.1:25, 32).

Scriptures used in today’s study:

Mat 24:21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

1Jn 4:1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
1Jn 4:2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:
1Jn 4:3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

2Th 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
2Th 2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

Rom 12:12 Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer;

Mat 24:7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

Rom 8:18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
Rom 8:19 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.

Rom 8:21 Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.
Rom 8:22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.

Joh 16:20 Verily, verily, I say unto you, That ye shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: and ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy.
Joh 16:21 A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world.

Mat 24:7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

Eze 7:1 Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
Eze 7:2 Also, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD unto the land of Israel; An end, the end is come upon the four corners of the land.
Eze 7:3 Now is the end come upon thee, and I will send mine anger upon thee, and will judge thee according to thy ways, and will recompense upon thee all thine abominations.
Eze 7:15 The sword is without, and the pestilence and the famine within: he that is in the field shall die with the sword; and he that is in the city, famine and pestilence shall devour him.

2Ch 7:13 If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people;
2Ch 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Dan 9:3 And I set my face unto the Lord God, to seek by prayer and supplications, with fasting, and sackcloth, and ashes:
Dan 9:4 And I prayed unto the LORD my God, and made my confession, and said, O Lord, the great and dreadful God, keeping the covenant and mercy to them that love him, and to them that keep his commandments;
Dan 9:5 We have sinned, and have committed iniquity, and have done wickedly, and have rebelled, even by departing from thy precepts and from thy judgments:
Dan 9:6 Neither have we hearkened unto thy servants the prophets, which spake in thy name to our kings, our princes, and our fathers, and to all the people of the land.
Dan 9:7 O Lord, righteousness belongeth unto thee, but unto us confusion of faces, as at this day; to the men of Judah, and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and unto all Israel, that are near, and that are far off, through all the countries whither thou hast driven them, because of their trespass that they have trespassed against thee.
Dan 9:8 O Lord, to us belongeth confusion of face, to our kings, to our princes, and to our fathers, because we have sinned against thee.
