Overview Part 1 - How soon is Jesus coming back?

How soon is Jesus coming back?

The world is becoming more interconnected at an exponential rate. By 2024, SpaceX plans to launch over 4000 satellites into the sky, providing Internet to the entire world. Other companies, such as Facebook and Oneweb, are attempting to do the same within the decade.

This is especially exciting because mobile devices in the world already outnumber the world’s population.

Because of this, this ancient teaching of Jesus will finally come true.

And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come. (Matt 24:14 ESV)

For the first time ever, the 16,818 distinct ethnic groups in the world will have heard about Jesus, many for the very first time. There is already a Christian ministry that has recorded a Gospel presentation into almost every spoken language.

We are on the cusp of the most exhilarating moment in human history, the long awaited return of Jesus Christ from heaven. He will rescue us from God’s wrath and transform our bodies into a glorious body like his..

For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who looks on the Son and believes in him should have eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day.” (John 6:40 ESV)

As we have seen, such a vastly interconnected global network can be used for great good. But it can also be used for evil. A ruthless politician, called the Antichrist, could easily use such a network to demand worldwide worship and allegiance, as Revelation 13 predicts.

But before he does this, the Antichrist will make a seven year contract with Israel.
He will confirm a covenant with many for one seven. (Daniel 9:27a; NIV)
Halfway through this 7-year contract, he will sit in a rebuilt Jewish temple, and demand that everyone worship him.

The European Union already has a 7-year program with Israel, called the European Neighborhood Policy. The Antichrist could easily use this framework to launch the prophesied final 7 year contract with Israel.

Ancient Roman Empire at it's Height

Interestingly, a map of the European Union and ENP member countries looks like a map of the ancient Roman Empire. This is significant, because the Bible predicts that the Roman Empire will be reborn prior to the return of Christ.

European Union & ENP Member Countries

The EU’s 7-year ENP program started in 2007, and is renewed every seven years. The next 7-year program will go from 2021-2027.

If the Antichrist uses the ENP framework to make the infamous treaty with Israel for seven years, he will break it halfway through, in mid-2024.That’s the same year the whole world is projected to have Internet, and the Great Commission completed.

If this is really true, we would expect to see a lot more additional evidence, including the Antichrist’s rise to power.
