World-affecting Occurrences in these Biblical 'last days'That The main stream and/or course of world events in these Biblical "last days" (Joel 2:28-32; Acts 2:16-21; Heb.1:1-3) and before the completion of the end time (Dan.8:15-26; 10:24-27; 12:4-13) include the following world-affecting very significant occurrences:
(1) universal or cosmic catastrophe or breakdown or collapse because the Lord Jesus Christ is shaking not only the earth but also the heavens to remove the things which are made and shakeable so that the angelkind and the humankind should abide in and live only on the unshakeable Eternal Kingdom of the Lord Jesus Christ (Heb.12:25-29; II Pet.1:3-11; I Pet.5:10); thus in these last days the Lord Jesus Christ is speeding up, intensifying and universalizing the disintegration and collapse of the world/universe; even the powers (“dunameis” = intelligent-capable-wonderful forces-works) in the heavens shall be shaken (Matt.24:29; Mk.13:35; Lk.21:26; Rom.8:38-39; Joel 3:1-16);
(2) in the solar system, where the planet earth belongs, the sun shall be darkened ([Acts 2:20; Isa.13:9-13; Rev.6:12-17] implying that much of its energy has already been dissipated and/or that there are objects obstructing the passage of energy-heat-light from the sun to the planet earth and/or that so much pollutants on the earth’s atmosphere are preventing the penetration of sunlight upon the surface of the waters and lands of the earth) and the moon shall be turned to blood (either literally, just as the water of the Nile was turned into blood before the Exodus of Israel from Egypt [Ex.7:17-24] and/or figuratively, when humankind will shed blood on the moon as the human moon explorers-exploiters and/or colonizers fight over possession-control-utilization of the moon’s spaces and minerals [Acts 2:20; Deut.4:19; 33:14; Ps.8:3-6; 72:7; Isa.13:9-13; 24:21-23; Joel 2:10,31; 3:15-16; Rev.6:12-17]);
(3) on the earth there will be signs of blood, fire and vapor of smoke (Acts 2:19), and, there will be great earthquakes from place to place (Lk.21:11), also, there will be “roaring of the sea and the waves” (Lk.21:25); volcanic eruptions, very strong widespread earthquakes and gigantic tidal waves will cause not only the death of very many people but humankind will go through so much dislocations on the planet earth;
(4) within the earth’s biosphere there will be famines, plagues and terrors (Lk.21:11); global overpopulation, droughts and the pollution-poisoning of the food chains are causing widespread severe famines; the human tampering with the respective genetic codes of the different kinds of living organisms is spawning, unleashing and propagating internationally damaging, very costly and deadly plagues; there will be “upon the earth, anxiety of nations in perplexity of sound, of sea and of surf, men fainting from fear and expectation of the things coming on the earth for the powers (“dunameis” = intelligent/capable/forces) of the heavens will be shaken” (Lk.21:25-26);
(5) among the humankind “many shall run to and fro and knowledge shall increase (Dan.12:4; II Pet.1:3-11; Phil.3:1-16; Jn.8:31-32; II Cor.13:8); even a small nation, like Edom, will build nest (dwelling place/home/colony) among the stars (Obadiah 1:4) ; however, though the wicked dig into Sheol (hell or realm of the dead) from there the hand of Jesus shall take them; though they climb up to heaven, Jesus will bring them down; and though they hide from His sight at the bottom of the sea, there He will command the serpent to bite them (Amos 9:2-3; Ps.139:1-12); therefore, humankind will acquire, master and appropriate knowledge, science, technology and Ekklesiastical, religious-social-political-economic cooperation to manage the human and the sub-human createdkinds in order to subdue the earth and explore-conquer-appropriate and/or exploit the whole world (I Cor.3:21-23);
(6) grievous times (“kairoi” = opportunities/occasions) are at hand for men will be self-lovers, money-lovers, braggarts, arrogant, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, ingrates, unholy, without natural affection, implacable, slanderers, without self-control, savage, haters of good, betrayers, reckless, puffed up, pleasure-lovers rather than God-lovers, having the form of godliness but denying its power (“dunamin” = capability) thereof… always learning and never being able to come to a full knowledge of the truth (II Tim.3:1-7); false prophets, false Christ/Anointed, false teachings but misleading or errorbound great signs and wonders will increase (Lk.21:8; Matt.24:5,11,24; I Tim.4:1-3); nation will rise up against nation and kingdom against kingdom (Matt.24:7); the unjust will be more unjust and the filthy will be more filthy (Rev.22:11); more Jews will come to Palestine and Israel will be a powerful nation again (Lk.21:29-31); deceptions, persecutions and murders will be committed against the Name, the TRUE IDENTITY (Matt.24:4-5,23-26; Mk.13:4-5,21-22; Lk.21:8), the Mediatorship (Matt.24:9; Lk.21:17), the accounting for and advocacy of (Mk.13:9; Lk.21:12-13) the Person of Christ Jesus, the Almighty Lord God the Son incarnate and Perfect Man; because of widespread and/or multiplying lawlessness-disorders, treacheries-betrayals and promotion of falsehood the love of MANY will grow cold (Matt.24:11-24); there will be a global international preparation, by the lovers of injustice, for the lawless one, viz. the supreme antiChrist during the great tribulation, whose coming is according to the energizing of satan in all power (dunamis = ability) and signs and wonders of a lie and in all deceit of unrighteousness in those who are being lost because they did not receive the love of truth to be saved (II Thess.2:7-10); and
(7) THE TRINITARIAN ALL FOR JESUS EKKLESIA (BODY OR COLLECTIVITY OR CONGREGATION OF THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE ONCE AND FOR ALL COMPLIED WITH, FULFILLED AND ACCOMPLISHED THE BIBLICAL ALL FROM, ON, IN, THROUGH, WITH, TO AND FOR JESUS GIFTS-CALLING-ORDER FOR THEM [Jn.10:14-16]) OF THE LORD GOD are not only RECIPIENTS-APPROPRIATORS-CONFESSORS of the ENTIRE SALVATION-ETERNAL LIFE-EVERLASTING GLORY of the Lord Jesus Christ but they are also given the responsibility to Christologically-Christonormatively-Christocentrically appropriate ALL THINGS (I Cor.3:21-23) by Biblically converting and/or processing and/or using all things just from, on, in, through, with, to and for the Lord Jesus Christ Himself; thus all of the aforementioned TRINITARIAN ALL FOR JESUS people are commanded by the Lord Jesus Christ (1) to go into all the world (cosmos) and (2) to proclaim the Gospel of the Eternal Kingdom of the Lord Jesus Christ to all of creation (Mk.16:15; Matt.24:14; II Pet.1:11) and, also (3) to make all nations/peoples disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ (Matt.28:19); however, to accomplish all of these tasks all of the constituents and/or members and/or functionaries and/or officers of THE TRINITARIAN ALL FOR JESUS EKKLESIA OF THE LORD GOD must cooperate to manage all of the subhuman creation, subdue the earth and explore-conquer-appropriate not only the solar system but even the whole world just from, on, in, through, with, to and for Christ Jesus, the Almighty Lord God the Son and the justly All-appropriating All in all even in His incarnation and Perfect Manhood; that is why at the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ “He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet and they will gather His elect from the four winds – from one END of the HEAVENS to the other ENDS” (Matt.24:31; Mk.13:27); it is very clear and definite from the foregoing passages of the Scriptures that before and during the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ the humankind, including, of course, THE TRINITARIAN ALL FOR JESUS people, has already explored-colonized-appropriated and/or exploited the astronomical universe; so that it is said of the servants-messengers of the Lord Jesus Christ, “Their voice has gone out to ALL the earth, and their words to the ENDS of the world” (Rom.10:18); there will be a worldwide communication of the words of Jesus’ messengers who will be enabled by Him to do so by appropriating the scientific and technological instruments/devices/systems invented or designed for this purpose;
