One of the things that you will hear a lot once you start studying end times prophecy are “birth pains”, or “sorrows”.  Jesus spoke of them during his sermon on the  mount as one of the key warnings we should look for.

Mark 13:8 (New King James Version) – 8 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be earthquakes in various places, and there will be famines and troubles. These are the beginnings of sorrows.

Anyone who has had a baby or been a part of the process understands this process all to well but for those that haven’t, the contractions during the birth process begin slowly and fairly far apart, the severity of the pain is also small at first and grows exponentially.

This is what Christ was talking about in the sermon on the mount.  Once we enter the “last days”, we will see specific signs.  We will know that they are the signs by the pattern at which they come.  They will start off slow, infrequent and of a small magnitude and ramp up in intensity and become so close together you hardly have a chance to breath between each event.

This is what we have been seeing over the last year or two.  It all started shortly after World War II with the creation of Israel (which fulfilled a portion of Ezekiel’s prophecy) and has been magnifying ever since.

The team at Rapture Ready.com has developed an index in which they tried to track this at a high level.  I will let Todd, explain in further in the great article below…
