The Final Decade
God’s grace is so great that He made the path to spiritual salvation and everlasting life as easy as possible. His unconditional love and forgiveness that leads to His eternal presence is enveloped by these two scriptural references; 1 Corinthians 15:1-4, and Romans 10:9-10, 17. When death arrives know and believe with your heart, mind and soul the faith actions of these two and you’ll have everlasting life and peace, irrespective of how you may pass from this mortal life.
The believer and follower of Jesus Christ will understand and be strengthened. Scripture makes evident a series of occurrences prophesied to aide us in determining when our spiritual response should be “on high alert and at the ready.” Being engaged spiritually prepares those interested in embracing the Lord. Active spiritual grounding and strength will allow you to face the challenges ahead without fear or consternation. Bible prophesy details certain time frames and durations of and between observable ‘End Times’ events. Every person alive without God’s spiritual protection when these ‘Last Days’ occur will potentially experience fear, danger and death in light of God’s judgmental wrath.
Let’s examine this coming final decade of mankind’s ‘superiority.’ How it’s justified as unrighteous, how it will be put asunder by the wrath and indignation of God almighty, and why spiritual salvation is dependent upon accepting Jesus as the Christ/Messiah.
If you’re aware of the unfolding events in the middle east in and around Israel, you know of the current (pre-military) situation escalating in Syria between Israel and its neighbors. We are told in the book of Ezekiel of an impending invasion of Israel [Ez 38-39] by a coalition of countries under the lead and direction of a Turkey, Iran and Russia coalition (the Leopard, the Lion, and the Bear). [Dan 7:3-6, Rev13:2]
This military incursion is predated by agreements between Israel and various other countries in the middle east region (notably many of the recent Trump administration “Abrahamic Accords” signatories) that will serve as a fundamental division of separatist ethnic and nationalistic groups described in bible prophesy. [1 Chronicles 1:9, 1:32]
When this coalition's invasion from the north (Syrian territory) into the ‘mountains of Israel’ (Golan Heights/West Bank region) is imminent, facing overwhelming numbers of enemy troops and armaments with all hope lost for Israel, many countries will believe Israel’s final destruction is at hand. [Ez 38:13]
When all talk is put aside and Israel’s military defeat appears inevitable, God Himself will intervene on Israel’s behalf. The victory for Israel will be decisive and irrevocable. The world will see God’s devotion and love for His chosen people, the Jews. His victory over Israel’s enemies will cause not only devastation to those invading armies it will also show His victorious living presence to the rest of the world. [Ez 38:16-23] One of the outcomes of His actions on Israel’s behalf will be a worldwide revival for and of belief in Jesus as the Christ/Messiah.
It will also verify and validate the Bible’s Old and New Testaments as God’s recorded words. Will everyone be enlightened and accepting to a point of belief and discipleship?
Of course not. But many will come to know of God’s nature and character through His Holy Spirit and belief in Jesus as His Son; mankind’s redeemer/savior [1Thess 4:1-2, 8].
As significant as this victory’s clarion call will be for both immediate and long term ramifications to the world’s people and more specifically to Israel and her neighbors, the subsequent events to be set in motion by its occurrence will (I believe) initiate the actuation of mankind’s “Final Decade” of this age. More specifically, these precursor years plus the final seven years of “The Last Days” described in biblical prophecy [Dan 9:27] are part of this "Final Decade."
There are many events, outcomes and actions related to these “Last Days” which will not be covered here. I am presenting occurrences I believe will be undeniably observable and related to the unmistakable ‘End Times.’ Again, specific dates are not as important as awareness of these actions by those having spiritual understanding and its applied strength to live through (if possible) these events.
