Let’s take a quick look at today’s prophecy-related headlines which point towards the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ and the end of the world as we know it.

1. Hundreds of Iranian troops are being deployed in northern and central Syria, dramatically escalating Tehran’s involvement in the civil war as they join allied Hezbollah fighters in an ambitious offensive to wrest key areas from rebels amid Russian airstrikes.

2. Israeli police and a civilian shot and killed three Palestinians on Saturday who were attacking them with kitchen knives, as a wave of Palestinian assaults continued, answered by deadly Israeli fire.

3. A measles outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo’s copper-mining southeast has killed 428 people and infected about 30,000 since the start of the year.

4. Two weeks of air and missile strikes in Syria have given Western intelligence and military officials deeper insight into the transformation that Russia’s military has undergone under President Vladimir Putin, showcasing its ability to conduct operations beyond its borders and providing a public demonstration of new weaponry, tactics and strategy.

5. Crippling blizzards, snowstorms, and sub-zero temperatures threaten a yearly dose of Arctic misery for the next 50 years at least – and possibly decades more.

The prophetic passage of Scripture that we are looking at today is Psalm 89 which reads in part: “I will sing of the mercies of the Lord for ever: with my mouth will I make known thy faithfulness to all generations. For I have said, Mercy shall be built up for ever: thy faithfulness shalt thou establish in the very heavens. I have made a covenant with my chosen, I have sworn unto David my servant,Thy seed will I establish for ever, and build up thy throne to all generations. Selah.”

Our second coming quote for today is from Martin Luther. He said, “I hope that the day is near at hand when the advent of the great God will appear, for all things everywhere are boiling, burning, moving, falling, sinking, groaning.”
