Isaiah 24:5 The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant.
Some people today say, the bible is an old book. The Bible is not relevant today. Everything that it says, has nothing to do with modern day events. I remember working in a factory back in the 1990’s in Holland, Michigan . I was witnessing to a man there who said, can you show me even one prophecy in the bible that is coming true today. Being a young Christian, I said, let me go home and study that a bit and pray about it and I will give you and answer. That night a very rare thing happened. There was an earthquake so strong in Ohio that the tremors were felt all the up in Holland, Mi. I went back to work the next day and asked him, do you know there are nations fighting against one another today? He said yes. I asked, do you know of the famines in northern Africa in the news? He said yes. I finally asked, did you feel the earthquake last night? He said yes, that was weird. I said, would you believe me if I told you Jesus predicted those things in the Bible? He said where? I pointed to Matt. 24:7 “For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.” He was speechless.
Today’s verse in Isaiah 24:5 is prophecy we can view in the daily news. Earth’s inhabitants have defiled this planet. God’s laws, and His Word mean very little. What is not liked, is twisted or re-written. Prophesy is not just to come, it’s now.
In the same chapter of Matthew that spoke of the earthquake, in Matthew 24:44 it says; “Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.”
Are you still waiting for a sign?
