thus be an end to the famous Dead Sea that refuses to support

life.

END OF THE CURSE

We have just reviewed some of the physical changes that

will happen in the future, which will define the end of this age.

Genesis 3:17 says the Omega will begin removing the curse of

the earth that He had pronounced in the beginning (the alpha)

of human history. The curse has brought to the earth what the

Apostle Paul described in Romans 8 as decaying, groaning, and

pain. As is well known, the curse was pronounced because of

sin. Sin can be defined as man doing his own thing, which he

certainly has done. Just as the antediluvians did their own

thing and were awarded judgement—namely the Flood—so

throughout history, people have been doing their own thing. In

so doing, they are preparing themselves for judgement—the

Tribulation, which leads to the end. The end is associated with

the Day of Vengeance of Our God (Isa. 61:2), Who alone, after

His judgement, will be able to remove the curse.

SIGN & CLOUDS

In Matthew 24:3, the Jewish disciples asked for a sign. A

sign-seeker is someone who seeks a wonder or a miracle. Christ

gave them the sign for the time of the end. At that time, the

earth will no longer be without a sign of the physical presence

of God. Therefore, signless times end.

“At that time the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the

sky, and all the nations of the earth will mourn. They will see

the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky, with power

and great glory”

(Matt. 24:30).
