Prophetic Witness - March 2011
The Signs of the Times
The doomsday clock appears on the cover of each issue of the 'Bulletin of Atomic Scientists' at the University of Chicago since 1947. On the clock midnight stands for total nuclear destruction while the minute hand represents the severity of the threat to the world of such destruction. The minute hand was first placed at seven minutes to midnight in 1947 and has been moved periodically over the years to reflect the current threat level to the world. It has been as distant as 17 minutes and as close as two minutes to midnight over the years since its inception, currently it stands at five minutes to midnight. If we were to use the doomsday clock to evaluate how close we were to the Lord's return and the end of the age it would probably be set at a lot closer than five to midnight it could even be as close as one minute to midnight.
Jesus said in respect to His return and the consummation of the age 'Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors." Is His return and the end of the age that close and if so what are the signs of it? There are five things which appear to be leaves upon the branches of the tree which suggest the nearness of Christ's return and the end of the age.
