The final moments of the "times of the Gentiles" has to coincide with Israel already being back in her land, which occurred in May of 1948. May is significant because that is when the early fruit (good fruit) first buds. Because the Jews had to have Israel back as a nation, before they could be attacked in the Six Day War, which resulted in them recapturing Jerusalem. The Jews have to be in control of Jerusalem again, in order to one day rebuild a future Jewish temple. (Matthew 24:15; 2 Thess. 2:4) All of that is colliding with the fact that they have been back as a nation going on 67 years.
The Bible is clear that we will not know the day or the hour of the Lord"s return. (Mark 13:32.) But the apostle Paul did say we would recognize the season. And just like one can know by looking at a calendar when roughly winter or summer should begin, we don"t know exactly until we start seeing and feeling the changes. I believe that over the last 100 years, we are increasingly seeing the signs and we can know with a 100% confidence that we are in the season of our Lord"s return.
"But concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I should write to you. For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. For when they say, "Peace and safety!" then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman.
And they shall not escape. But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief. You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober" (1 Thessalonians 5:1-6).

"Peace" is meant to show just how rapidly things are building toward the biblically prophesied era of Tribulation--the last seven years immediately following this Age of Grace. Issues and events of our time are herding all of mankind into that period in which history's most despotic tyrant will foist his brand of peace upon the hapless earth-dwellers of the post-Rapture world.
It will, the prophet Isaiah foretold--be peace that is made with death and hell (Isaiah 28:15, 18). It will be a peace the prophet Daniel predicted would "destroy many" (Daniel 8:25).
When the Church is removed to Heaven by Christ, world crises will reach maximum intensity. There will be a cry for peace. The "prince that shall come" of Daniel 9:26-27 will step forward on the world stage to give people that peace. But, that peace will turn to unprecedented cruelty by the most horrendous regime of human history.
