Living in the End Times - A Brief Overview of Biblical Prophecy Come True

By Kerry Hedden

In light of recent events that are taking place around the world, the discussion of whether or not we are currently living in the end times has become all too common in many circles of people.
From regular folks to devout Christians, when comparing biblical prophecies to current events it is rather difficult to dispute the fact that there are some similarities, and as part of the Christian faith all followers of Jesus should live their lives as alert as possible for His second coming. The second coming of Jesus is referred to as the End of Days or the End Times.

For those of the Christian faith who do follow current events, there are some key elements or events that have occurred that directly line up with biblical prophecies. Here are a few of the major ones that could be considered as fulfillments of the end time prophecy outline in the last book of the Holy Bible.

War will be poured out on all the nations. War is going on in and between many regions of the world including the United States, Israel, Palestine, Iraq and Iran, African nations and many more. (Matthew 24:6 "And you will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars; see that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end.")

Famines and earthquakes should be occurring during the end times. Take note of the major earthquakes that have been occurring all over the world in the past few years, including India, Indonesia, Iran, China and Turkey since the beginning of the 21st century, although there were records of equally devastating and large-scale earthquakes in the decades before that. (Matthew 24:7 "For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes.")

False prophets will come forward during the End Times, according to Biblical prophecy. As of now, there have been several people who have come forth and claimed to be prophetic people, or even the Messiah himself, including Jim Jones and David Koresh (Matthew 24:11 "And many false prophets will arise, and will mislead many.")

People all over the world are starving. Whether it is lack of food due to political famine, drought, or otherwise famine is occurring in many areas of the world as we speak. There are nearly 6 billion people in the world, and a great fraction of them are without food. (Matthew 24:7 "For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes.")

There are many reasons why faith-based groups and otherwise feel that we are living in the End Times, and for good reason. Living a clean, devout life and being prepared for the Second Coming of Jesus Christ is all that Christians can do to prepare, and take heart in the fact that soon the world will be rid of these disasters and pestilence.
