SIGNS POINTING TO THE SECOND COMING OF JESUS CHRIST :
Approximately 2500 years ago , 500 years before the first coming of
Jesus Christ , the prophet Zechariah http://www.aboutbibleprophecy.com/zechariah.htm spoke of the second coming of Jesus
Christ . He tells us there will be a great battle between Jesus Christ
(The Lord) and all the nations that are too surround Jerusalem in Israel
, during this future event .
Zechariah 14:2a For I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem to battle.............
Zechariah 14:3 Then the Lord will go out and fight against those nations...........
We are told , by Zechariah , the kind of catastrophic effects the
battle will have on the armies from the nations of the world that go out and battle against the land of Israel .
Zechariah 14:12 And
this shall be the plague with which the Lord will strike all the peoples
that wage war against Jerusalem: their flesh will rot while they are
still standing on their feet, their eyes will rot in their sockets, and
their tongues will rot in their mouths.
For 2500 years , since
this was prophesied and recorded , there has not been a time in history
where man has been able to produce a weapon that could have resulted in
this kind of instant mass devastation , so devastating , as to cause
such catastrophic and sudden death on such a grand scale , up until the
last and present centuries . A nuclear weapon would indeed produce the
very effects spoken of here by Zechariah .

We are told by Jeremiah the prophet of the grand scale of death caused by these future events .
Jeremiah 25:33 “And those pierced by the LORD on that day shall extend
from one end of the earth to the other. They shall not be lamented, or
gathered, or buried; they shall be dung on the surface of the ground.
Extreme radiation levels would certainly prevent buriel .
Behold , a day is coming for the Lord, when the spoil taken from you
will be divided in your midst. 2For I will gather all the nations
against Jerusalem to battle, and the city shall be taken and the houses
plundered and the women raped. Half of the city shall go out into exile,
but the rest of the people shall not be cut off from the city. 3Then
the Lord will go out and fight against those nations as when he fights
on a day of battle. 4On that day his ( Jesus Christ ) feet shall stand
on the Mount of Olives that lies before Jerusalem on the east, and the
Mount of Olives shall be split in two from east to west by a very wide
valley, so that one half of the Mount shall move northward, and the
other half southward. 5And you shall flee to the valley of my mountains,
for the valley of the mountains shall reach to Azal. And you shall flee
as you fled from the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah.
Then the Lord my God will come, and all the holy ones with him.
Clearly , Israel needs to be in place before the nations of the world
can be gathered against it , and as shown , this happened in 1948 after
2000 years of dispersion .
It must also be noted that never before
have the nations of the world been gathered together against Israel ,
again , clearly a future event .
Are we witnessing biblical prophecy written down and given some 2500 years ago , being fulfilled in our time ?
