More than two thousand years ago, the true Lord of the universe, the Lord Jesus Christ, had forewarned us (His believers) through His disciples, the following statement:
[Mat 24:6-8] And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye 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.
If the world seems to be in constant battles, the Lord Jesus said, “This is not leading to the end of the world, as yet!”
In my previous article, (linked below) Dr David Reagan (http://raptureimminent.wordpress.com/…) delivered an in depth analysis of the number of wars which will be fought in the end time (where we are in right now) before the warring parties deployed the nuclear arsenals which will result in the end of the world!
THE END TIME WARS AND THE FATE OF ARABS’ NATION AND ISRAEL.
The next statement relates to “nation” against “nation” which in the original text was written as ethnic against ethnic.
We are seeing that right now in the battles in Syria, Iraq and Iran (Arabs and the Kurds) along religious factions, such as the Sunni against the Shiites.
Regarding FAMINES, there is a partial list collected by Wikipedia introduce with the following excerpt:

SIGNS OF JESUS COMING PART 06 – FAMINES, PESTILENCES, ETC
Published on Nov 16, 2013
All these disasters will come to past but the end is not yet; this is a terrific statement saying that the coming events will be so deadly and horrifying that it is like the end of the world. During the 4th Seal, similar horrific events will occur with 1/4 of mankind being killed. Thus the coming World War 3 with the deployment of weapons of mass destruction together with great earthquakes, tsunami, famines and pestilences will see 1/4 of mankind killed just as though it is the end of the world.
Thank God that godly Christians will not be affected by these disasters for they will be protected by God as in Psalm 91.

WHY ARE SO MANY DEADLY DISEASES BREAKING OUT ALL OVER THE GLOBE RIGHT NOW?
October 08, 2014 | Michael Snyder
Ebola, Marburg, Enterovirus and Chikungunya – these diseases were not even on the radar of most people coming into 2014, but now each one of them is making headline news. So why is this happening?
Why are so many deadly diseases breaking out all over the world right now? Is there some kind of a connection, or is the fact that so many horrible diseases are arising all at once just a giant coincidence? And this could be just the beginning.

The flesh-eating Marburg virus in Angola is one of the most dangerous and contagious there is. We exclusively follow the doctors in the wards battling the epidemic.
The isolation ward in Uige, Angola, is strictly off limits but our cameras gained exclusive access. It’s here that confirmed Marburg victims are cared for. “This patient has arrived at a very late stage of infection so the prognosis is not good,” states a nurse. But most Marburg victims never make it to hospital. Instead, they’re picked up by WHO doctors trawling the slums. “The problem is that they’re calling us for the bodies. We’re going after the epidemic has struck so we’re not being effective,” explains Dr William Perea. Doctors don’t even know where the virus comes from and are working on tracing its carrier.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU ARE INFECTED WITH THE EBOLA VIRUS?
Common Cold, Bleeding Out The Ears And Eyes
Published on Jul 30, 2014

You have a temperature and no appetite. Your head is aching and you’re throat is sore.
It may appear as though a common cold is lurking, but unbeknownst to you the vicious Ebola virus has started to attack your immune system.
The virus destroys the same cells as those targeted by HIV, though the Ebola infection is more aggressive, wiping out the building blocks of the body’s immune system.
It has an incubation period – that is the time from infection to when the first symptoms present themselves – of between two and 21 days, increasing the risk of the highly-infectious illness spreading.
As soon as a victim starts to suffer the sudden onset of the disease, the fever, crippling headache and muscle pain, they are already contagious.
The virus is transmitted through close contact with the blood, secretions, organs or other bodily fluids of infected animals.
Once a human is infected, the disease can spread quickly within a community, with health workers and family members of victims at particular risk.
The current outbreak rampaging through West Africa, began in a small village in Guinea and since February it has claimed 672 lives, leaving another 1,200 people infected. It has spread into neighbouring Sierra Leone and Liberia.
on Friday, U.S. citizen Patrick Sawyer died in the Nigerian capital of Lagos, having travelled there by plane after attending his sister’s funeral, after she too died of the disease. This is now the most prolific Ebola outbreak since the disease was first discovered in 1976.
The fact the virus mimics the symptoms of a common cold in its early stages, is the very aspect that makes the disease so difficult to diagnose. Within a few days, the early symptoms give way to the next stage of the virus.
Disseminated intravascular coagulation causes clots and hemorrhaging, with clots in the liver, spleen, brain and other internal organs.
The virus pierces veins and capillaries, forcing the blood vessels to bleed into the surrounding tissue. A patient will suffer aches all over the body, chronic abdominal pain, vomiting and diarrhoea. And The latest outbreak is the worst since the disease was first discovered in 1976
Scary right? Just plain scared will not save you! What we have seen and read were envisioned and disclosed by the Lord Jesus way beyond our present age. The LORD GOD of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; the Father of the Lord Jesus Christ had declared:
[Isaiah 46:9-10] Remember the former things of old: FOR I AM GOD, AND THERE IS NONE ELSE; I AM GOD, AND THERE IS NONE LIKE ME, DECLARING THE END FROM THE BEGINNING, AND FROM ANCIENT TIMES THE THINGS THAT ARE NOT YET DONE, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure…
Only GOD can declare THE END FROM THE BEGINNING! The same attribute can be seen with His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ! We have seen the proof with the current event as reported above. Even the Lord Jesus Christ left the message to His disciples concerning His “future” vision as follows:
[Mat 24:25] Behold, I have told you before.
[Mar 13:23] But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things.
Yes, we are seeing that these things are coming to pass! What does it mean when these things are coming to pass?
[Luk 21:27-28] AND THEN SHALL THEY SEE THE SON OF MAN COMING IN A CLOUD WITH POWER AND GREAT GLORY. And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and LIFT UP YOUR HEADS; FOR YOUR REDEMPTION DRAWETH NIGH.
The Lord Jesus is talking about “rapture” here! Since current events as foretold by the Lord is coming to pass, let me submit here, I believe, rapture is imminent.
[1Th 4:16-18] For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: THEN WE WHICH ARE ALIVE AND REMAIN SHALL BE CAUGHT UP TOGETHER WITH THEM IN THE CLOUDS, TO MEET THE LORD IN THE AIR: AND SO SHALL WE EVER BE WITH THE LORD. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
Are you saved?
