The world is intently looking to the nation of Israel after the horrific attack perpetrated on October 7, 2023, which was a High Sabbath. Many Christians consider Israel to be a timepiece for the fulfillment of prophecy, and are eagerly leading people to consider the biblical significance of this war that has broken out, especially in relation to the time of the rapture of the church. But how can we be sure of the correct prophetic application of this apocalyptic event?
Jesus’ own prophecy in relation to the signs of the time of the end in Matthew 24:30 answers the question of the meaning of this unprecedented war.
And then [first] shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then [second] shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and [third] they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. (Matthew 24:30)
We must pay careful attention to the words of Jesus. First, He said that the sign of the Son of man would appear in heaven. Therefore, He led us to look up to recognize it. This sign has appeared through the trajectory of two newsworthy comets forming the Alpha and Omega signature of Jesus, by which He identifies Himself in the book of Revelation.
Being the sign of the Son of man, the symbolism within this signature encompasses many aspects related to Jesus as the Son of man, His role in the divine plan of salvation as well as the announcement of His second coming in glory:
The sign of Jonah depicting the great fish in whose belly Jonah (and by extension, the Lord) is represented.
The new name and seal of Jesus and the Father.
The seven churches of Revelation, which represent His body, with the urgent call of Jesus to repent and be gathered into the fold of truth.
The ear that the members of the seven churches should have to hear the Spirit.
The vision of Zechariah 4 that depicts two olive trees draining their oil into a bowl through two pipes, which is then distributed to seven other lamps (which are the seven churches as the light of the world).
The harp that the end-time harpers play, as well as its ten strings, which are…
The Ten Commandments in their fullness as Jesus expounded while on earth.
The ark of the testament, with its contents of Aaron’s rod, the bowl of manna, and the two tables of stone.
The tree of life, whose leaves are for the healing of the nations, formed by the comet of Time.
The final harvest at the end of the world with the wheat gathered into the barn and the grapes gathered and thrown into the winepress.
The scene of the Lord’s baptism and that of His people.
The kingdom of God and the representation of His enemies becoming His footstool.
The correlation of the end as in the days of Noah that Jesus prophesied.
Lastly, the inheritance of the tribes of spiritual Israel are demarcated in the sign in an orderly sequence like the ancient tribes.
This sign gloriously and unmistakably reveals Jesus to the world and gives hope to all who look up in faith.

According to Jesus’ prophecy in Matthew 24:30, after the appearance of the sign, we can expect to see all the tribes of the earth mourning. And that is exactly what we see. The sign of the Son of man appeared, and now the tribes of the earth are mourning before they see Jesus, the Son of man, returning in the clouds. Jesus, as the Son of man, was born as a Jew, so when He spoke His prophecies, He framed them in the context of the Jewish nation. But many Jews today are scattered worldwide, and they represent the tribes of the earth, and they are mourning the loss of loved ones in Israel.
What is happening is terrible for both Israelis and Palestinians, and our heart goes out to all who are hurting—from both sides. God does not desire that any should perish, but that all might come to eternal life.
The outbreak of the war in Israel is an unprecedented escalation that was successfully staved off for fifty years, but has come precisely in the timeframe that Jesus clearly outlined in His prophecy. The following news illustrates this fulfillment:
Every Jewish family in UK affected by attack on Israel, says chief rabbi - BBC News
There is hardly a Jewish family in the UK which is not affected in one way or another by what has happened in Israel, the chief rabbi has said.
Sir Ephraim Mirvis told BBC News it was a “time of mourning, of deep grief, and of enormous worry” for the community.
This war is a clear signal that confirms the veracity of the sign of the Son of man and with it, the good news of the coming of Christ at the appointed time. The prophecies of Revelation about the plagues and the fall of Babylon will continue to run their course during the remaining time before the last part of the verse—the appearing of our Blessed Hope—completes the sequence.
…and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. (Matthew 24:30)
Let us look up now with understanding of the time, so we may discern the earthly events that fulfill God’s prophetic word. The seventh trumpet, as shown on the sign with the path of comet K2 forming the last stretch of the Omega initial, is giving the last warning to the world of the imminent coming of Jesus and the destruction of the earth.
The text of the seventh trumpet declares:
And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail. (Revelation 11:19)
The sign of the Son of man is a revelation of the ark in the temple of God in heaven. And afterward, the seventh trumpet prophesies a great hail, like the hail of 5,000 rockets that overwhelmed Israel, leading this attack to be classified as Israel’s 9/11.
The horrific terrorist attack launched on Israel on Saturday was its 9/11.
Not since the country’s formation in 1948 has it witnessed so much bloodshed from a terrorist atrocity.
This is a foreshadowing of what is to occur in the coming months as the raging among the nations intensifies. The sound of the seventh trumpet warns of the outpouring of the seventh plague with the great hail, which could point to a full-fledged atomic World War III, as some are already anticipating.
And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great. (Revelation 16:21)
It is urgent to lead people to recognize the heavenly sign of the Son of man that gives us the assurance of God’s protection and the nearness of His coming. One can only gain the proper biblical understanding of prophetic earthly events through looking up to the divine revelation of time, which places them in the right context.
As you comprehend the revelation of time prophesied by Jesus, we invite you to extend the opportunity for others to have the hope and understanding that the Lord is granting. You may print the following card and distribute it to lead those who have questions about prophetic events in the world, like the unprecedented war in Israel, to look up and gain an understanding of the time. Grant the oil of the Spirit to those whom you encounter while there is yet time.
