Let’s use the crude metaphor of a pimple, worsening, reddening, swelling. This is what we are very much witnessing now and have, now, for decades.
Is it ready to “pop”?
The signs of the times are more interesting than ever. The climate is swerving — for two decades now we have used the term “gyrating” (we stay away from politics). The list of such augurs, such signs, and not just in erratic weather, is a very long one, from quakes to volcanoes. As erratic as the weather: Wall Street.
Paradise, California, is turned into Hell — literal destruction, literal fire; what a name for the city! — at the same time that New York, home to the traditional parade, bears the coldest Thanksgiving in a century. It is extremes you should watch. Warming can suddenly become cooling.We watch now too economic indicators (since our world is obsessed with that) and what is transpiring in society.
There, we are seeing the embodiment of evil, the build up, the pus concatenating at the surface. Lying is more pervasive than ever before. Greed is more pervasive than in memory. Incivility has never been more of a problem. Consumption is off the charts. The oceans are headed for full-scale species extinction events.
“The report says the Midwest, as well as the Northeast, will also experience more flooding when it rains, like the 2011 Missouri River flood that inundated a nuclear power plant near Omaha, forcing it to shut down for years,” notes a newspaper.
When it erupts, purification will come in a number of forms — perhaps more like a train, one car after another — than as a single event — though there will be a constant roar.
When it does, then we will see the real signs of the times, the actual beginning of chastisements. There will be a special report on this shortly, from the angle of prophecy. Some of the events will be “formed with our own hands,” as one prophet said. They will culminate when there is that full measure.
In Scripture we see, as previously reported, in 2 Maccabees (12-17): “Now I beg those who read this book not to be disheartened by these misfortunes, but to consider that these chastisements were meant not for the ruin but for the correction of our nation. It is, in fact, a sign of great kindness to punish sinners promptly instead of letting them go for long. Thus, in dealing with other nations, the Lord patiently waits until they reach the full measure of their sins before He punishes them; but with us He has decided differently, in order that He may not have to punish us more severely later, when our sins have reached their fullness. He never withdraws His Mercy from us. Although He disciplines us with misfortunes, He does not abandon His own people. Let these words suffice for recalling this truth…”
