The Fig Tree Parable, COVID 19 And The Imminent Return Of Jesus by MrPresident1: 8:43pm On Apr 12, 2020
Matthew 24:32
Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:


This verse inter-plays the coming of Jesus with the relationship between Spring and Summer. Although Jesus did not mention Spring by name, we all know that trees typically have their branches tender and bring forth their leaves in Spring https://www.dkfindout.com/us/earth/seasons/four-seasons/

Jesus says that the events surrounding his coming would be like the season of Spring leading to the season of Summer.

Matthew 24:33
So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.


The question now arises, what are the things we will see?

Luke 21:25-27
And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;
26Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.
27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.


There shall be signs in the sun moon and stars: these can be interpreted literally and figuratively. Literally, there have been a lot of super moons, blood moons, wolf moons, corona ejections from the sun, black holes etc. Figuratively, heavenly bodies such as the sun, the moon, and the stars denote the leadership of the world.

The leaders have been giving us all kinds of signs, a very notable one of such signs was the gathering of the eagles in the place of the carcase last year. It is said that the leaders of the world would never do anything without first informing the people
Re: The Fig Tree Parable, COVID 19 And The Imminent Return Of Jesus by MrPresident1: 8:44pm On Apr 12, 2020
Upon the earth the distress of nations: this is pretty straightforward, a lot of socioeconomic and political distress in the nations of the earth today. Using Nigeria as an example, we are in a very precarious economic situation, crude-oil prices have fallen against the budget benchmark which will lead to deficit, Nigeria likely would borrow to bridge the deficit. Nations of the earth are on lockdown, half of humanity is under one form of lockdown the other, 97% of Americans are under lockdown which this will lead to economic and political recession and depression. Already, COVID 19 will shave up to 30% away from America’s economy. In the latest unemployment assessment, over about 17m Americans have filed for unemployment benefits, unprecedented in history. People can no longer pay for house rents and the queue for food relief stamps is increasing

With perplexity: everyone especially the leaders are confused even though they are hiding it well from the people so as not to induce mass panic. There is great perplexity on the distress that is coming upon the earth
Re: The Fig Tree Parable, COVID 19 And The Imminent Return Of Jesus by MrPresident1: 8:45pm On Apr 12, 2020
Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: men are looking at coronavirus, there is a worldwide pandemic that is causing the heart of men to faint, men’s hearts are failing them because this virus can be spread just by talking or even just breathing. There is palpable fear everywhere everyone is asked to stay at home and stay safe

For the powers of heaven shall be shaken: The coronavirus has shaken and devastated the heavens, but this is only just the beginning. Bible calls the heaven of this world the borders of wickedness, the people of the LORDS’s curse, the people upon whom his indignation resides forever. Also, this means that their intelligence will fail. An asteroid will smash their civilisation to pieces. There will be great mourning all over the earth due to the events and the devastation in heaven.
Re: The Fig Tree Parable, COVID 19 And The Imminent Return Of Jesus by MrPresident1: 8:45pm On Apr 12, 2020
And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory: Christ will return in the midst of great global mourning due to the events in heaven, the devastation caused by the asteroid/Meteor impact on the earth. Retuning in the clouds of heaven means that Christ will return in the midst of devastation/trouble in heaven. Heaven is the leading ruling nations of this world. Clouds mean trouble.
Re: The Fig Tree Parable, COVID 19 And The Imminent Return Of Jesus by MrPresident1: 8:46pm On Apr 12, 2020
Luke 21:28
And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.


Christ tells us that when we see these signs, we should lift up our heads, for our redemption draws nigh. Our redemption has come!

Christ likens the signs that we will see as Spring, then he likens his return as Summer.

How do we know that this is the Spring that Jesus is talking about? The answer is simple, this is the Spring after the gathering of the eagles in the place of the carcase. In December 2019, there was a gathering of the leaders of the world in London, these were the leaders of NATO. North Atlantic Treaty Organization or NATO is a group of countries that make up the old Roman Empire. The symbol of the old Roman Empire is the eagle. America which is the new Rome, is the head of NATO, has the bald eagle as its symbol.

https://www.theguardian.com/world/gallery/2019/dec/04/natos-70th-anniversary-summit-kicks-off-in-london-in-pictures#img-21

This gathering fulfilled this prophecy

Matthew 24:28
For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.

There is so much noise about government corruption and ongoing stealing of covid 19 funds.

I think anybody that is clamouring that some people are embezzling funds meant for fighting covid 19 funds is a very useless person. Anybody that is embezzling the funds is truly a very useless person too.

If you embezzle the money for covid 19 where are you going to spend it? America, UK, France, Germany or Saudi Arabia?

If you are making so much noise about the embezzlement and government corruption, it is because you do not have access too. After all, in the land of thieves, the most hardened thieves are the rulers. Rue your misfortune until you are given access.

Nonsense

MrPresident1:
And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven

The sign of the appearance of the Son of man in heaven is great stress and distress in heaven, heaven here being the leading, ruling nations of this present world, the wisdom of the world fails, the world economy crashes, political structures collapse, there is worldwide anarchy and chaos and no one knows what is coming next.

The sign of the Son of man in heaven is a complete crash of the economy of heaven and by extension, the economy of the whole world. The economy has failed, the food stores are looted, there is complete breakdown of law and order, and there is panic everywhere.

Complete breakdown!

Jeremiah 25:30-33
30 Therefore prophesy thou against them all these words, and say unto them, The LORD shall roar from on high, and utter his voice from his holy habitation; he shall mightily roar upon his habitation; he shall give a shout, as they that tread the grapes, against all the inhabitants of the earth.
31 A noise shall come even to the ends of the earth; for the LORD hath a controversy with the nations, he will plead with all flesh; he will give them that are wicked to the sword, saith the LORD.
32 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Behold, evil shall go forth from nation to nation, and a great whirlwind shall be raised up from the coasts of the earth.
33 And the slain of the LORD shall be at that day from one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth: they shall not be lamented, neither gathered, nor buried; they shall be dung upon the ground.

Covid 19 is being used to achieve the prophecy that says...

Mathew 24:30
And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven:


Socioeconomic and political distress in heaven, the next is anarchy and chaos as the lockdowns are extended worldwide. Everyman is wondering what is coming next...

Now that you all understand the interpretation and meaning of this prophecy, and now that we are seeing the fulfillment of this prophecy right before our very eyes, the next thing is to move to the next prophecy

Matthew 24:30 :
and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.


The truth is that Christ will come at that terrible sound of thunder!

1 Corinthians 15:52
52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

1Thessalonians 4:16
16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:


The Trumpet, the Trump of God, the voice of the archangel is THUNDER!

When the dead hear it, they will awaken from the dead. We shall all be changed, from corruption to incorruption.

June 20 2020 is when Summer will start

Matthew 24:32-34
Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:
33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.


Have we arrived at the point in time for the fulfillment of prophecy above? I think we have. The reason I am convinced that we have is that we have seen the gathering of eagles in the place of the carcase.

We have heard of peace and safety
We have seen the abomination of desolation in the Holy Place (and the wise have fled into the sanctuary of Jesus)

Matthew 24:32
34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.


We have been told that when we see these things, it means that Jesus is already at the doors

This thread explains everything that is going on in the world at the moment, all the economic crisis, the political brouhaha, the socio-economic imbroglio etc., this thread explains everything to you.

Upon the earth, the distress of nations with perplexity: One million boys in Lagos and Ogun states, crude oil (WTI) selling at negative price, Nigeria's 2020 budget had a benchmark of 57USD(?) it was reviewed to 30 USD (?), brent is selling at about 20USD, the implication for Nigeria is dire.

There is socio economic and political troubles in heaven, corona virus is causing widespread trouble in health and finance systems, they are all signs of the end time as we have been told.

The warnings have been strident and unending, you have only yourself to blame if Christ comes and finds you unprepared.

They are using covid 19 to achieve the prophecy. Covid 19 is not from God.

An asteroid is coming toward earth, they cannot see it, thy do not know when it will make impact.

It will burn through our atmosphere in a huge fireball, it will split into several pieces. The atmosphere will not be able to burn it up completely, its impact upon earth will create cataclysmic devastation, the heaven of the world will be the epicentre.

The impact will create a sonic boom, this thunderous sound will be heard by everyone on the earth, both living and non-living. The non-living will wake up from the dead, they will rejoice with the living whom God woke up before them.

Together we will go with Christ and the kingdom of God will be established forever.

‘Death by meteorite’: Turkish researchers claim to have proof of world’s first space-rock fatality

https://www.rt.com/news/486742-death-meteor-strike-evidence/


A group of researchers in Turkey are claiming to have come across the first credible records yet discovered of ‘death by meteorite,’ dating from August 22, 1888.

They cite multiple official documents recovered from the General Directorate of State Archives of the Presidency of the Republic of Turkey, which detail a meteorite strike that hit and killed one man and paralyzed another, in what is now Sulaymaniyah in Iraq.

The Earth endures near-constant bombardment by assorted meteorites and space rocks, at a rate of millions per day, most of which burn up harmlessly in our atmosphere.
While there is no actual rock to verify the 1888 reports, the supporting documents, only recently translated from the Ottoman Turkish language and added to a digital archive, make a strong case, the researchers argue.

The reports indicate that a large fireball was seen in the sky at approximately 8:30pm on August 10 on the Julian calendar (August 22 on the Gregorian). Soon after, meteorites reportedly “fell like rain” for roughly ten minutes, bombarding an entire village from space, killing one man and paralyzing another in the process.

The reports also contained details of significant crop damage, consistent with a fireball shockwave.

“This event is the first report ever that states a meteor impact killed a man [..] with the support of three written manuscripts that report an event in such detail as far as we know,” the researchers wrote in their paper.
Despite the overwhelming number of meteorites that hit Earth on a daily basis, there have apparently not, until now, potentially, been any direct casualty reports of meteorite fatalities.

For instance, while the 2013 Chelyabinsk meteorite caused significant damage and injury with its shockwave, it didn't actually kill anyone, despite the fact that certain chunks of the space rock's shrapnel weighed up to an astounding 654 kg (1,442lbs).

Meanwhile, a woman named Ann Hodges was struck directly on the hip by a meteorite while napping on her couch at her home in Alabama in 1954 and, while the rock was retrieved and found to be from out of this world, her injuries were non-fatal.
For context, and according to NASA records, since 1988 at least 822 such space rocks were big enough to break through our natural atmospheric defenses and explode in our skies, raining down meteorites like a cluster bomb, shredding everything unfortunate to be in its debris field. In this newly discovered case, two unsuspecting men.

Job 20:4-9 Knowest thou not this of old, since man was placed upon earth,
5 That the triumphing of the wicked is short, and the joy of the hypocrite but for a moment?
6 Though his excellency mount up to the heavens, and his head reach unto the clouds;
7 Yet he shall perish for ever like his own dung: they which have seen him shall say, Where is he?
8 He shall fly away as a dream, and shall not be found: yea, he shall be chased away as a vision of the night.
9 The eye also which saw him shall see him no more; neither shall his place any more behold him.


Infallible words, ABSOLUTE TRUTH!

Thy terribleness hath deceived thee, [and] the pride of thine heart, O thou that dwellest in the clefts of the rock, that holdest the height of the hill: though thou shouldest make thy nest as high as the eagle, I will bring thee down from thence, saith the LORD.

THE BREAKDOWN

There shall be signs in the sun in the moon and in the stars


The Bible is written in such a way that events in heaven, or in the stars, or astrological events and bodies are used to represent the events on earth. As above so below.

Literally speaking, there are numerous signs that are being given off by the sun and the moon and the stars of heaven to show that we are in the time of the end. The incidence of solar flares in the sun has increased. In recent times there have been many signs from the moon, we have become familiar with red moons, black moons, honey moons, super moons etc., the stars are also unrelentingly giving out signs that indeed the saviour is here.

Figuratively speaking, the sun, the moon and the stars all set in the firmament of heaven are the leaders of our world. The leading nations of the world and all their honourable men, their top personalities are the sun, the moon and the stars of the world. They are the illuminated ones who provide direction for the world, they provide and dominate the issues. The signs being given off by these heavenly bodies cannot be missed by the one who is watching.

The most recent sign in heaven has been the presidential election in America where contrary to widespread expectations and prophecies from acclaimed men of God, the one who was not expected to win, the one of whom it is said did all he could, said all he could say to make sure he did not win the elections, won the election in a landslide cum tsunami! Now there are protests everywhere and everyone is bracing up for eventualities. This is a very strong sign of distress in the heavens.

The sun and the moon and the stars are all wondering as to what course the world is heading. Everyone is bracing up and expectant. Literally and figuratively speaking, everyone can see the signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars.

and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity

The interpretation of this verse is very obvious because it hits home.

Nations are distressed. Nigeria’s economy is in recession, Venezuela is in trouble, Brazil is in trouble, Saudi Arabia is in trouble, everywhere you turn to, it is tales of socio economic and political distress. Nations are increasingly finding it difficult to take care of their citizens. In Nigeria, the hunger pangs have been harrowing. Inflation is at 18.9% and shows no sign of abating, alerts are being issued for famine despite the fact that God Almighty gave us a bumper harvest this year. Everyone is confused and perplexed. What is really going on? Leaders are perplexed, followers are perplexed, confusion and increasing perplexity among both the ruler and the ruled is the other of the day.

12 For thus saith the LORD; Behold, they whose judgment was not to drink of the cup have assuredly drunken; and art thou he that shall altogether go unpunished? thou shalt not go unpunished, but thou shalt surely drink of it.
13 For I have sworn by myself, saith the LORD, that Bozrah shall become a desolation, a reproach, a waste, and a curse; and all the cities thereof shall be perpetual wastes.


We were never meant to drink from the cup of judgment, but we drank. How shall you escape?

The sea in the Bible represents people Mark 5:21. The roaring of the sea mean s turmoil. The distress of nations have brought turmoil. Families are in distress and in turmoil, fathers and mothers cannot feed their children as adequately as they want. House rents are being owed, people cannot fuel their cars, the minimum wage is not enough to buy a bag of rice, prices are skyrocketing daily, and people all over the world are increasing getting disenchanted with their governments. In Nigeria, economic recession and currency devaluation is making a mincemeat of the people

The seas and waves are roaring. Nigeria is the microcosm sea of the whole world. As ere as there.
