Prophecies being fulfilled right before our eyes in society

It is simply amazing at how the Bible got these right !

I have given you six different categories of signs, each category containing many prophecies concerning the end times, all of which are being fulfilled before your very eyes. Now I’m going to conclude by specifically listing a number of those prophecies. This is going to be a long Meditation, but I believe it’s important for you to have all these prophecies.


Increasing instability of nature:



"For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places."(Matt 24:7) "And there will be great earthquakes in various places, and famines and pestilences; and there will be fearful sights and great signs from heaven."(Luke 21:110


Increasing lawlessness and violence:



"And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold."(Matt 24:12)


Increasing immorality:



"But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be."(Matt 24:37-9)


Increasing materialism:



"For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good."(2Tim 3:2,3)


Increasing Hedonism:



Men will be "traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God."(2 Tim 3:4)


Increasing influence of Humanism



: "For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy."(2 Tim 3:2)


Depraved entertainment:



Men will be "traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God."(2 Tim 3:4)


Calling evil good and good evil:



Men will be "unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good."(2 Timothy 3:3) "Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!"(Isa 5:20)


Increasing use of drugs:



Men will be "unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good."(2 Tim 3:3)


Increasing blasphemy:



"For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy."(2 Tim 3:2)


Increasing paganism:



"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God!"(2 Tim 3:1-4)


Increasing despair:



"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come."(2 Tim 3:1)


Signs in the heavens:



"And there will be great earthquakes in various places, and famines and pestilences; and there will be fearful sights and great signs from heaven."(Luke 21:11) "And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring."(Luke 21:25)


Increasing knowledge:



"But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase."(Dan 12:4)


Increasing travel:



"Many shall run to and fro."(Dan 12:4)


The explosion of cults:



"Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many."(Matt 24:11)


The proliferation of false christs:



"For many will come in My name, saying, 'I am the Christ,' and will deceive many."(Matt 24:5)


Increasing apostasy in the Church:



"For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry."(2 Tim 4:3-5)


Increasing attacks on Jesus:



"For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them."(Rom 1:18,19)


Increasing attacks on God’s Word:



"For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them."(Rom 1:18,19)


Increasing persecution of Christians:




"Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name's sake."(Matt 24:9)

Increasing famine:



"And there will be great earthquakes in various places, and famines and pestilences."(Luke 21:11)


Increasing pestilence: "

And there will be great earthquakes in various places, and famines and pestilences."(Luke 21:11)


Computer technology:



"It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation."(Rev 13:7)


Television:



"And their dead bodies will lie in the street of the great city which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. Then those from the peoples, tribes, tongues, and nations will see their dead bodies three-and-a-half days, and not allow their dead bodies to be put into graves."(Rev 11:8-9)


Satellite technology: "

Then those from the peoples, tribes, tongues, and nations will see their dead bodies three-and-a-half days, and not allow their dead bodies to be put into graves."(Rev 11:8-9)


Virtual reality:



"And he deceives those who dwell on the earth—by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and livedHe was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed."(Rev 13:14,15)
"I never asserted such an absurd proposition, that something could arise without a Cause" -- staunch atheist Philosopher David Hume.

"What this world now needs is Christian love or compassion" -- staunch atheist Bertrand Russell.

Could someone explain these last two for me? The last one especially is a little confusing.
Only when the blood runs and the shackles restrain, will the sheep then awake. When all is lost.

I think the verses are mixed up, the satellite should be the one above and same with virtual reality.
1Tim1:15-17
Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners of whom I am the worst. But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his immense patience as an example for those who would believe in him and receive eternal life. Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory for ever and ever.Amen.

Both refer to end time events during the Great Tribulation , and they have not come to pass yet.
