Current Events (October 17th - 31st, 2018) - Himitsu | End Times Study (1)

If you’ve been keeping up with events happening around the world and specifically in the Middle East, you’ll find that many biblically/prophetically significant events are stacking up. If you’re not keeping up then this article is for you as it’s a good resource for articles and videos on events that have been occurring over the month.

Although I believe the events may be significant and relate to the Bible, we should be careful as to how we interpret these events and not be quick to jump to conclusions. Many of these articles – I believe – relate to prophecies in the sense that they are one of many pieces to the “puzzle” that is setting up the eventual fulfillment of them.We are told to be watchful and awake to the events going around the world but also be able to discern.

At the beginning of each section, I included sections of verses to what I believe the events are relating to. I’d recommend you read the surrounding verses and even the chapter for a clearer picture. At the end of the article are links to my previous current events articles as well as links to recommended articles and videos that go into detail regarding the prophecies in these verses for those that aren’t familiar.I hope this comprehensive collection of articles and videos guides you in your own research and deepens your understanding of the events occurring around the world.

This article is composed of 5 sections:

Government/Politics, Middle East/Israel,Nature/Celestial Events,Society, andTechnology.Feel free to navigate to the section that most interests you.

Below are other articles on current events:

Below are videos that help tie the events to what the Bible says and explains their prophetic significance as well:

Lastly, here are articles that give a better insight into some of these prophecies and events:

  • God And His Fig Tree by Unsealed – An in-depth article on Israel as God’s “fig tree” and what that means prophetically.
  • BREAKING: Jewish Nation-State Bill Becomes Law, Biggest Prophetic Development In 50 Yearsby Unsealed – “In my estimation, July 19, 2018 will go down in history as one of the most significant dates in Israel’s prophetic history—right up there with May 14, 1948 and June 7, 1967. 1948 was the restoration of the nation-state itself, 1967 the restoration of the nation’s capital, and 2018 the restoration of the nation’s biblical identity.”
  • What’s Happening? by Unsealed –Muslims are predicting the soon return of the Imam Mahdi, Secular Humanists are predicting mass extinction because of global warming and unchecked capitalism, and Christians are predicting the imminent return of their Lord and SaviorJesus Christ. Plenty of other “end of the world”-type speculation has completely saturated television and the internet with bizarre mentions of a Mayan calendar, quatrains written by Nostradamus, alien invasions, and an impending (though yet unseen) planet called “Nibiru”. Hollywood has certainly added fuel to the fire with the recent releases of2012,The Book of Eli,9,The Road,Legion,The Day After Tomorrow, and others. The film and television industry has developed an odd fascination with the apocalyptic genre… very odd, wouldn’t you agree? Something is definitely going on.
