Michael Snyder says on his website, themostimportantnews.com: "If you want to greatly anger any man, just go after his home and his family. This will be true in just about any culture all across the globe."
Similarly, when the rest of the world attempts to divide the land of Israel and hurt the Jewish people, they are going after the family that Jesus was born into and the city where He will rule and reign for 1000 years after He comes back.
When Jesus was being crucified, Roman soldiers divided up his clothing, and that was a deeply disgraceful thing to do. But now just before Jesus returns, the entire globe is trying to divide up His land and divide up the one city on the entire planet that He has identified as His city.
Matthew 5:34-35 (NKJV) says:
But I say to you, do not swear at all: neither by heaven, for it is God's throne; nor by the earth, for it is His footstool; nor by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great King.
So join me now, and listen to the podcast, God’s Plans and Purposes for Israel
The second title in this series was The Miracle of Israel and the Coming Millennium, where I shared about God restoring the Jews to their land (when Israel became a nation in 1948 after almost 2000 years). Then I shared about the 1000 years that Jesus will reign from Jerusalem after Jesus returns.
Between the first pangs that Jesus talks about, ie wars, earthquakes and famines, there is a period called the great tribulation and then before the millennium period we will see the glorious return of Christ.
So in Part 3, today, The Second Coming of Jesus, I will be a little more specific on what happens prior to His return. Have a listen to the podcast here.

Today we are going to examine two events,
My questions are, "Will the prophesied final generation today make the same mistake? Is the church in 2020 asleep or awake to what is predicted to happen in the end times...and even more relevant...are we in the end times now?"
