The first part of this page includes daily headlines that relate to the "birth pangs" of the end times. The last part of this page includes a list of links and news sources related to biblical prophecy. We can expect to see an increase in frequency and intensity of catastrophes and disasters, both natural and man-made, as we come closer to the Lord's return:
Luke 21:25-28 - "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; men's hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near."
Jesus told us to watch for specific signs leading up to his return. These signs are "birth pangs" (Matthew 24:6-7, Mark 13:7-8, and Luke 21:9-11). When these signs "begin" to happen, we know our redemption is near. While this redemption is ultimately speaking of Israel at the 2nd Coming of Jesus, the "birth pangs" have already begun. In other words, as the "birth pangs" increase in frequency and intensity, we know that the Church's redemption in the rapture is that much sooner. As an interesting side note, someone suggested to me that the "fear" spoken of in the passage above might be enhanced from the sensationalized news media.
Below, I post headlines daily related to the "birth pangs." This list will generally include headlines that relate to the Middle East, particularly news that concerns Israel and their neighbors, followed by global geopolitical turmoil, the volatile global economy, earth convulsions, technology and legislation leading to the "mark of the beast" system, and headlines that relate to the increasing depravity of man, like in the "days of Noah." Each headline below is a click-able link to the news article. A link to a two-year archive of "birth pang" headlines is found at the end of the daily list.
