Apocalyptic themes — including elements related to biblical end times theology — dominate entertainment as well as some contemporary theological discussions, sparking intrigue and interest from the masses.
But are the end times truly upon us, as some Christians believe? John Hagee, senior pastor of Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, Texas, believes that there are some important signs to pay attention to.
“There are signs and wonders that are happening in the sky that never happened before,” Hagee recently told CBN News.
And that’s not all. The pastor also went on to characterize the present time as “a powder keg” and added that “the fuse is lit,” noting that many of the key players that people believe will play a potential role in the end times are currently rearing their heads on the international stage.
“Every player is on the stage for the first time in history that fulfills all of the prophesies of Daniel, Ezekiel, Jeremiah, Isaiah — they’re all there,” he said. “We’re just waiting for the next domino to fall, and when it does, watch out. It’s not going to stop.”
Watch Hagee’s comments below:
As Faithwire previously reported, many contemporary theologians and pastors believe they’re observing numerous signs in the current culture that mirror the supposedly prophetic contents of scriptures in Old and New Testament books like Ezekiel, Daniel and Revelation.
What has convinced these theologians and pastors that the end times could be ramping up? That’s a question I covered in-depth in my book, “The Armageddon Code,” through interviews with about 20 of the most prevalent eschatology experts.
You can see some of the reasons some believe the end times are upon us — and why others reject that notion — here.
