Commentary

Here you can find my commentary on current events that have prophetic significance. My goal with these commentaries is to share my thoughts on the significance of world events in a relatively short article while also offering sources to help you deepen your understanding of the topic. If you’re looking for a more in-depth look at prophecy, check out my series examining prophecy.

  1. Red Heifer born in Israel signaling “final stage of redemption” (September 22nd, 2018) – In late August a red heifer was born in Israel and marked a significant turning point for efforts surrounding the rebuilding of the Jewish temple, paving the way for rituals and sacrifices in Israel again after more than 2,000 years.
  2. Prelude to the Mark of the Beast? (October 5th, 2018) – China has recently began a pilot program they call a “social credit” system which they aim to use to monitor every aspect of their 1.4 billion citizens’ lives. Meanwhile, a Wisconsin based company is making human implantable chips used to buy snacks, open doors and has GPS capabilities. Could we be seeing the making of the mark of the beast system written about in Revelation 13?
  3. Being Watchful (October 11th, 2018) – Several times in the bible, we’re commanded to be watchful – watchful of the times we’re living in and the many signs accompanying these times. But what does it really mean to be watchful and how does this affect our outlook of life as followers of Christ?
  4. Watchmen on the Wall (October 17th, 2018) – We are a blessed generation that is witnessing the words of the prophets come to life and experiencing things previous generations could only dream to see. We’re currently living in a period of time where many prophecies in the bible are being fulfilled daily and are setting up for their near and future fulfillments. We are born for such a time as this. However, as Christians what do we then do with this information? Do we keep it to ourselves and hide in our homes or sound the “alarm” of the events to come?
  5. Israel – God’s Fig Tree (October 23rd, 2018) – One of the many signs accompanying the “end of this age” is the rebirth of the nation of Israel 70 years ago in 1948. In Matthew 24:32-34, Jesus gives a parable about a fig tree – Israel. He likens the appearance of leaves on the tree to events that will precede his return, but who is “this” generation that saw the fig tree bud and what does it mean for our current time?
  6. Dead Sea Coming Back to Life (November 5th, 2018) – The dead sea is one of the world’s saltiest bodies of water with a salinity of 34.2%, it is 9.6 times as salty as the ocean making it a very harsh environment where plants and animals can’t flourish or even survive. However, recently there’s been small fish and vegetation found in sinkholes near the sea showing that it’s coming to life. The bible states this will happen but is this just a big coincidence or one of many signs of the times we’re living in?
  7. Prelude to the Mark of the Beast? II (November 27th, 2018) – Thousands of people in Sweden opt to get chipped as their society turns to a cashless one. UK employers are also thinking about chipping their employees but this does come with its privacy concerns. Are we seeing the beginning of what the bible tells us will eventually be the mark of the beast system?
  8. “As it was in the Days of Noah…” (December 8th, 2018) – Recently, the first genetically altered twins have been born in China prompting global outcry as well as a call for legalization and safe practices for DNA altering technology. The Bible tells us there’s nothing new under the sun so are we seeing a re-emergence of the events in Noah’s time?
  9. The Rise of AI & A Race to Digital Identities (December 13th, 2018) – As the world advances in human-like AI technology and strives towards universal “digital identities”, we seem to be headed towards a future dominated by AI and ruled by those who hold their citizen’s personal data. Does the bible foretell of this type of future; a future of a global world system that has total control of the earth’s inhabitants and an intelligent AI being that has power to kill?
  10. A Great Earthquake (December 14th, 2018) – In July 2018, Israel had several small earthquakes that raised an alarm for a possible “big one” and brought to question the preparedness of Israel for this event. 2 articles made an estimate as to the damage and loss that may come from a large earthquake at 7,000 people killed, mirroring Revelation 11:13 of a great earthquake that will kill 7,000 people in Israel.
  11. A Prophetic Review (January 13th, 2019) – A look back into some of 2018’s most prophetically significant events.
  12. “As it Was in the Days of Noah…” II (January 14th, 2019) – Recently we’ve seen the first genetically altered twins born in China creating an uproar in the scientific community. Now scientists at Francis Crick Institute believe they’ve “cracked” the code to precise human genome editing. As this type of technology becomes accepted and widely used, could it have unforeseen repercussions to the human race as we know it?
  13. Escalation in the Middle East (January 28th, 2019) – A back and forth of words, threats, and missile strikes by Israel and Iran and its proxies isn’t anything new. As Israel retaliates against Iran in an attempt to defend itself, officials in Syria and Iran threaten Israel’s very existence. The bible tells us that one day these threats will be acted on and will lead to the fulfillment of Isaiah 17, Zechariah 12, and Ezekiel 38-39. It seems like this is looming right over the horizon.
  14. The Coming One World Religion (February 12th, 2019) – On February 4th, 2019, Pope Francis made a historic visit to the UAE where he met with one of the highest authorities in Islam, Sheikh Ahmed Al-Tayeb, the imam of Al-Azhar for interfaith dialogue dubbed as the “Human Fraternity” meeting. With the push for Christianity, Islam and other world religions to unite for the sake of peace and tolerance, are we seeing the beginnings of a one world religion?
