Prophetically Significant
National and World-Wide Events 

Jesus himself, in Matthew 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21, lists at least twelve harbingers of the Tribulation - warning of imminent judgment and the Second Coming. Therefore, the prophetic significance of any national or world-wide event must be assessed in light of these harbingers. For a detailed account of exactly how these harbingers are derived, read Facing the Storm. Press here.

Facing the Storm
by Pastor Douglas Shearer

Two Videos of Jesus'
Olivet Discourse

Facing the Storm is an exegesis of Matthew 24 and 25, Jesus' Olivet Dicourse. In this book, Pastor Shearer clearly shows how the twelve harbingers or heralds listed on the right-hand column can be ferreted out from these two chapters - especially, Matthew 24:3-21. You are encouraged to purchase this book and study it carefully. Press this link.
Press on the two icons below and you will be taken to videos that exegete Matthew 24:1-25:46, Jesus' Olivet Discourse. The first video exegetes Matthew 24:1-31, Jesus' teaching on the lead-up to the Tribulation, the Tribulation itelf, and the Second Coming. The second video continues with Jesus' Olivet Discourse from Matthew 24:32 to 25:46, five parables on readiness and judgment. The two videos are taken from my book Facing the Storm. The book is much more detailed. The two videos open better in some browsers than in others.
