Discoveries in Faith

Short, uplifting Bible lessons designed to build faith and inspire obedience. 

Religion and Politics in Prophecy

In a recent post entitled, "Look up and Lift up your Heads," I wrote about some of the signs to look for prior to Christ's return (signs in the sky, signs on land, and signs in the ocean).

When natural disasters such as the aforementioned occur people tend to look for relief in religion or politics. They cry out, "God help us" or "Governement help us." Therefore, these two arenas are prophetically significant and merit close attention.

Keep an eye on politics (wars, revived Roman empire, seven year treaty with Israel, destruction of Babylon the great harlot, Antichrist, mark of the beast).

Keep an eye on religion (false Christs, False Prophet, one world religion, rebuilding of Jewish temple, abomination of desolation, apostasy, persecution, global missions).

The Bible says no man knows the day nor hour of Christ's return (Matt. 24:36). But by monitoring religion and politics we can discern the times and seasons (1 Thess. 5:1-5).
