In the book of 1 Thessalonians, written by the apostle Paul, many clues are given to us as to the timing of the end of the ages, but there is one in particular that more and more seems to be eerily fulfilling itself in the news, especially with regards to current events. Paul writes in 1 Thessalonians 5:1-3, “But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, ‘Peace and security’; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.” This is a puzzle that has been solving itself one piece at a time over the past decade, giving us a clue that suggests that the rapture will happen during a period in which we begin to hear two very essential words walk into the limelight, “peace and security”. These words have been sparsely peppered over the past few decades, but never so much as in recent affairs with all of the UN peace talks concerning coexistence in Israel between the Jews and the Muslims. Just as what the Bible has consistently prophesied would mark the last days in Luke 21, Ezekiel 38, Psalm 83, and the book of Revelation, Israel has become the focal point of the entire globe, and it is in that very worldwide attention on the Holy Land that we see happening today that Paul’s prophecy of 1 Thessalonians 5:3 is being fulfilled. Now days, you can hardly watch ten minutes of the news without hearing some mention of, as the prophecy goes, “peace and security”. Like birth pangs, these two key words have been increasing in an unstoppable momentum, along with all the rest of the signs of Jesus’ soon return. It’s in things like this that we can be sure that the age of grace is hurtling to a close.
Below is a video that I’ve created to demonstrate the frequency in which Paul’s two thousand-year-old prophecy is being actualized, not only in our lifetime, but right now. This may very well be one of our final warnings before the rapture occurs and God’s seven-year judgment is carried out.
It should also be noted that the original word for “security” in the Greek lexicon is “asphaleia“, which can also be translated as “safety” and “stability” in some Bibles.
