Hello and Happy Day! This is Dr. MaryAnn Diorio, novelist and life coach, welcoming you to another episode of Winning with the Word. Today is February 15, 2021, and this is Episode #3 of Series 2021.
Do you sense that something scary is going on in the world? That something ominous is about to happen, and you have no control over it? 

If so, you are not alone. Millions of people throughout the world know that something is drastically wrong in the world, but they don't know what it is. For this reason, they are afraid.

Today, I'd like to ease your fear by explaining some of the things that are happening, why they are happening, and what to do about them.

1. WHAT is happening?
Did you know that you can learn everything you need to know about what is happening in our world today by reading the Bible? Particularly the following passages:

Matthew 24 (Parallel accounts are found in Mark 13, Luke Luke 21 and Luke 17:20-37)
Revelation 13
2 Thessalonians 2
Jeremiah 50-51
Ezekiel 38-39 
Book of Isaiah 1-66
Daniel 2, 7-12
Book of Joel 1-3
Book of Zechariah 1-14
Book of Zephaniah 1-3

Thousands of years ago, Old Testament prophets, writing under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, predicted the events that are taking place today--events we are reading about in our morning newspapers, hearing about on the daily news, and living out in our daily lives. 

So what is happening today is the fulfillment of Bible prophecy right before our very eyes. The events the Bible predicted thousands of years ago are now coming to pass in our lifetimes. And they are coming to pass very quickly.

2. WHY is it happening?
It's happening because God said it would happen. In the Book of Numbers, chapter 23, verse 19, the Bible says that "God is not a man, so he does not lie." Not only does God not lie; He cannot lie because His very nature is Truth. So, when God says something, He says what He means and He means what He says. You can stake your very life on God's every word. This is the reason the Bible is such an amazing book. Every word in it is the truth!

Take for example the following passage from Matthew 24: 3-8 NLT:
Later, Jesus sat on the Mount of Olives. His disciples came to him privately and said, “Tell us, when will all this happen? What sign will signal your return and the end of the world? Jesus told them, “Don’t let anyone mislead you, for many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah.’ They will deceive many. And you will hear of wars and threats of wars, but don’t panic. Yes, these things must take place, but the end won’t follow immediately. Nation will go to war against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in many parts of the world. But all this is only the first of the birth pains, with more to come."
Are we not witnessing the beginning of all of these things now? Indeed, we are. And Jesus warned us that there is more to come.

What is this "more to come"? It is a seven-year period of the most horrific events the human race has ever suffered. For it will be the period when the AntiChrist, who is Satan personified, will seize power and enforce the tyrannical government of the New...
