The Christians believe that Jesus is coming back this year. They know what they are talking about because they know the bible. The end times are clearly described in the bible, and when we look at everything that is happening in the world right now, there`s a good chance the tribulation could begin this year.
If there`s ever been a time to get ready, this is the time. They believe that Vladimir Putin is sent by God. I`m following Jimmy Evans, and he talks a lot about it. So do Pat Robertson. In my recent article on March 3, I wrote about his tweet saying that Putin «is being compelled by God» to invade Ukraine in preparation for a massive End Times invasion of Israel.

Mr. Robertson claimed God had his conspiracy that was being implemented via Mr. Putin. Mel Gibson is also planning to release a new film about Christ. The Passion of the Christ 2,0 will be released next year.
«All of those troops there are going to be coming against Israel in the latter days. And God says, «I am going to take care of it.» He also told his viewers on the 700 Club on the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN), to read the bible because it`s coming to pass.
This is the end times. This is Apocalypse. God is ready to do something amazing, and that will be fulfilled, Mr. Robertson said.
An entity referred to as Gog and Magog descend from the «far north» upon a peaceful, reconstituted Israel, whose people had been «brought out from the nations, and all now dwell securely,» as it is described in Ezekiel.
The resulting war that follows allows a Messiah to swoop in and come to Israel`s rescue. It also ushers at the end of the world as we know it and the establishment of a new and better kingdom of God on earth.
Let`s look at Matthew 24, and what Jesus said: «In the last days, there will be wars and rumors of wars.» There will be plagues and an escalation of such catastrophes as the moment of Jesus` return draws near. In other words, the worse things get, the sooner the Second Coming.
The Bible lists several things to watch for; earthquakes, false Christs, wars, and rumors of wars. The gospel of Luke mentions signs in outer space, the nations of the earth facing problems with no solutions, and abnormally hostile weather (Luke 21:25).
The vast majority of Christians believe the second coming comes in two phases; the rapture, then the actual return of Christ at the end of the Tribulation period.
Watch for signs regarding the Temple in Jerusalem. That`s difficult for some people because The Romans destroyed the Hebrew Temple in Jerusalem in 70 AD.
There are prophetic events yet to happen inside the Temple; therefore, the Temple must be rebuilt. At the midpoint of the Tribulation Period, the Antichrist will walk into the Holy of Holies, located inside the Temple, and proclaims himself as a God.
When Jesus returns at the end of the Tribulation Period, He will walk into the Temple and start His one-thousand-year reign on earth. Neither of these events can occur without the Temple being there.
Next, keep an eye on the saber-rattling surrounding Ukraine. There is a prophecy in Ezekiel 38-39 describing an invasion of Israel. The nations involved in this invasion are Russia (Magog), Iran (Persia), several former Soviet states (Meshech/Tubal), Ukraine (Gomer), Turkey (Togarmah), Ethiopia, and Libya.
Notice Ukraine is on the list. For Ukraine to go to war alongside Russia, either Russia must take over Ukraine or the two become allies.
Jesus is coming back to beat up the bad guys and stomp on their enemies and crush everything under His heel.
Mel Gibson made a film about Jesus Christ in 2004, but now he is planning to release a new one next year. The film Passion of the Christ inspired the imagination in the realm of miracles, celestial beings, good and evil, and the meaning of loyalty, betrayal, and forgiveness.
The next film won’t be worse. According to actor Jim Caviezel who read a recent draft of the script, we`re in store for Mel Gibson`s magnum opus. The Empire Strikes Back of Christianity is apparently a masterpiece and must be seen to be believed.
While there isn`t much known about Gibson`s plans for the sequel (other than the Bible tells us), a release date for an upcoming novel may be evidence of the film`s roundabout premiere near June 16, 2023, for a book called The Gospel According to Mel Gibson; Fact, faith, and fantasy in The Passion of the Christ; Resurrection.
The book is by Helen Bond, a celebrated professor of Christian Origins and the New Testament. While Satan only had a couple of cameos in Passion, it sounds like much of the film will take place in Hell, where we will likely be treated to Gibson`s interpretation of eternal suffering.
We look forward to the film next year, and maybe in the meantime, Jesus is coming back? 41% of Americans believe that Jesus will definitely (23%) or probably (18%) return to Earth by 2050. Anyway, Mr. Robertson said; «read your bibles,» because «it`s going to pass.»
