When did the clock start ticking...

When you want to know what time it is on God's watch you have to look no further than Israel. Israel is God's timepiece amongst other things. The "end days" clock started ticking when Israel became a nation again in 1948. It ceased to exist for almost 2000 years, yet just as the bible has foretold, it became a nation again. Examine scripture for yourself. It's precise, clear and simple and current events take on a whole new meaning when compared with what God has told us.
I have highlighted verses from Ezekiel 36 and 37

Ezekiel 36 Prophecy to the Mountains of Israel

1 "Son of man, prophesy to the mountains of Israel and say, 'O mountains of Israel, hear the word of the LORD

8 " 'But you, O mountains of Israel, will produce branches and fruit for my people Israel, for they will soon come home. 9 I am concerned for you and will look on you with favor; you will be plowed and sown, 10 and I will multiply the number of people upon you, even the whole house of Israel. The towns will be inhabited and the ruins rebuilt.

24 " 'For I will take you out of the nations; I will gather you from all the countries and bring you back into your own land.

28 You will live in the land I gave your forefathers; you will be my people, and I will be your God.

Ezekiel 37

11 Then he said to me: "Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel. They say, 'Our bones are dried up and our hope is gone; we are cut off.' 12 Therefore prophesy and say to them: 'This is what the Sovereign LORD says: O my people, I am going to open your graves and bring you up from them; I will bring you back to the land of Israel.

14 I will put my Spirit in you and you will live, and I will settle you in your own land. Then you will know that I the LORD have spoken, and I have done it, declares the LORD.' "

21 and say to them, 'This is what the Sovereign LORD says: I will take the Israelites out of the nations where they have gone. I will gather them from all around and bring them back into their own land. 22 I will make them one nation in the land, on the mountains of Israel. There will be one king over all of them and they will never again be two nations or be divided into two kingdoms.

27 My dwelling place will be with them; I will be their God, and they will be my people.

Amen, the clock has started ticking. How prepared are we for the coming events? It is going to get ugly and we need to be prepared, spiritually obviously, but physically as well. Think Joseph and think the ten virgins.
