I remember some 20 years ago when I thought about Bible Prophecy and the signs in the world at that time, I might be able to point to 1 or 2. Now however it is so easy to point to more than a handful and those readying us for the Tribulation Period to come in ways we have never seen before. They are paving the way for the things we have been studying in the Book of Revelation, Daniel and Ezekiel to come true with 100% accuracy.
We have the creation and revival of the European Union, which will be foundational support for the platform of the Antichrist to come. We see things being stirred up by Russia in the nation of Syria. Research Isaiah 17 to see what will happen to the city of Damascus instead of the National Enquirer. We see the formation of the Euro in comparison to the decline in the US dollar and how that is impacting the world economies.
You have the European Union that has formed a governing power in their portion of the world. We have the G7 which manage the world's finances and global economies worldwide from 7 nations of the world.
These 10 nations listed on the top are the policy makers in the European Union and they have originated from the Ancient Roman Empire without exception. You have Etienne Schneider appointed as the Defense Minister, which commands the EU forces, Chief General in Germany.
We have the image above of the European Leaders signing the European Union Constitution in Capitoline Hill, Rome. Remember our study into the Seven Hills of the Ancient Roman Empire, Capitoline Hill was mentioned as one of those seven hills. They are signing this Constitution in front of the statue of Pope Innocent X as noted in the Washington Post on October 29, 2004.
We know from our Bible study through Bible Prophecy and into the Book of Revelation that the first 3 1/2 years of the Tribulation Period will be the rise of the Ancient Roman Empire from which the Antichrist will rule from.
Revelation 13:1 ~ "And I saw a beast rising out of the sea, with ten horns and seven heads with ten diadems on its horns and blasphemous names on its heads."
Daniel 7:7-8 ~ "After this I saw in the night visions, and behold, a fourth beast, terrifying and dreadful and exceedingly strong. It had great iron teeth; it devoured and broke in pieces and stamped what was left with its feet. It was different from all the beast that were before it, and it had ten horns. I considered the horns, and behold, there came up among them another horn, a little one, before which three of the first horns were plucked up by the roots. And behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of a man and a mouth speaking great things."
Revelation 17:12-13 ~ "And the ten horns that you saw are ten kings who have not yet received royal power, but they are to receive authority as kings for one hour, together with the beast. These are of one mind, and they hand over their power and authority to the beast." Daniel 9:24-27 ~ "Seventy weeks are decreed about your people and your holy city, to finish the transgression, to put an end to sin, and to atone for iniquity, to bring in every lasting righteousness, to seal both vision and prophet, and to anoint a most holy place. Know therefore and understand that from the going out of the world to restore and build Jerusalem to the coming of the anointed one, a prince, there shall be seven weeks. Then for sixty-two weeks it shall be built again with squares and moat, but in a trouble time. And after sixty-two weeks, an anointed one shall be cut off and shall have nothing. And the people of the price who is to come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. Its end shall come with a flood, and to the end there shall be war. Desolations are decreed. And he shall make a strong covenant with many for one week, and for half of the week he shall put an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall come one who makes desolate, until the decreed end is poured out on the desolator."
This tells us of a coming man representing the world, who will come to the nation of Israel and offer a peace plan, a road map to peace, a UN resolution. We know this to be the seven years Tribulation Period, also known as Jacob's Trouble. Jacob was renamed to Israel. There have been many attempts at nations trying to broker a peace treaty with the nation of Israel and its neighbors. Not any other nation. That alone should make you sit up and take notice.
We've seen it since 2005 on the front page of papers like the New York Times and LA Times where we have national leaders attempting to broker a peace agreement, but so far none of them have lasted. It is almost like God is telling us to wake up and pay attention. We have known terrorist leaders like Muhammad Abbas trying to get a grip on what is happening without any sincere attempts behind them. We have had numerous new stories claiming an attempt at peace between Israel and Palestine to end the violence there.
Daniel 9:27 ~ "And he shall make a strong covenant with many for one week, and for half
of the week he shall put an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the
wing of abominations shall come one who makes desolate, until the
decreed end is poured out on the desolator."
2 Thessalonians 2:3-12 ~ " Let no one deceive you in any way. For that day will not come, unless the rebellion comes first and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself against every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, proclaiming himself to be God. Do you not remember that when I was still with you I told you these things? And you know what is restraining him now so that he may be revealed in his time. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work. Only he who now restrains it will do so until he is out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed, who the Lord Jesus will kill with the breath of his mouth and bring to nothing by the appearance of his coming. The coming of the lawless one is by the activity of Satan with all power and false signs and wonders, and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing, because they refused to love the truth and be saved."
We know that one person will rise in the last days after the Rapture, to usher in this promised prophecy and he will create peace between Israel and her neighbors with a signed peace treaty that is to last 3 1/2 years. The question you need to ask yourself is, is there at temple currently in Israel today? We know that they isn't. Can you go online right now and donate money to the rebuilding of the Israel's temple? Yes, you can!
There are blueprints that are completed than a few select have been privileged to see. They even have the corner stone under intense security waiting for that moment when Israel is granted permission to rebuild their temple.
We know that the value of the US dollar to the Euro has been in decline for quite some time now. Out of 65 of the central banks, approximately 37 of them have shifted away from the dollar in favor of the Euro and we see this being played out daily in the stock exchanges and the world economies. Most countries in Europe won't accept the US dollar and you need to exchange it to be able to buy and sell anything in those countries. Even the US Central Intelligence Agency is taking notice of this.
We know that the European Union does not support the right of Israel to exist as a nation and slowly America is wavering in her support as well under Obama's administration for the first time ever. The European Union or EU is the foundation for the revival of the Ancient Roman Empire from which 10 kings will dictate what happens in the other 25 nations. We have seen the image on the Euro, depicting the woman riding the beast and she will enjoy incredible peace and prosperity. She won't be using US dollars but Euros.
These 10 nations are meeting to get away from a currency that can't be counterfeited, to avoid what the US has had to suffer by the illegal trafficking, terrorism and drugs in US dollars and illegal transactions.
It is the EU that is considering a cashless society dealing with numerical transactions that would put a stop to terrorist activity and illegal drugs and trafficking. This should truly wake you up to what is happening all around the world.
Do you know Jesus Christ personally or are you married to some pagan religion that goes through practices that you don't even know what you are doing?
Are you just reciting prayers when God says in the Bible not to repeat the same prayers over and over again?
Are you even connected to what Jeremiah 44 condemns as those who worship the Queen of Heaven?
Are you married to a system or does your heart belong to Jesus Christ?
Remember the Bible is clear on what one must do to enter heaven. You must be born again. You must put your faith and trust in Jesus Christ alone. He died on the cross for your sins and the Bible promises that if you confess your sins to Him, you'll be saved.
If you are looking for an earthly system to intercede for you before God to get you into heaven, you have missed the grace of God and you're standing before God on your own merits. It is no wonder that many of you are wondering why you feel so horrifically insecure right now because you are!
Wouldn't you want to be absolutely 100% certain that if you died today, you'd be in the presence of God without any doubts?
Trust in Jesus Christ alone, for our hope is not in this world or anything it offers us. The good news for those whose hope is in Christ alone:
Daniel 2:44 ~ "And in the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that shall never be destroyed, nor shall the kingdom be left to another people. It shall break in pieces all these kingdoms and bring them to an end, and it shall stand forever" Revelation 19:11-20 ~ "Then I saw heaven opened and behold, a white horse! The one sitting on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he judges and makes war. His eyes are like a flame of fire and on his head are many diadems, and he has a name written that no one knows but himself. He is clothed in a robe dipped in blood, and the name by which he is called is The Word of God. And the armies of heaven, arrayed in fine linen, white and pure, were following him on white horses. From his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations and he will rule them with a rod of iron. He will tread the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God the Almighty. On his robe and on his thigh he has a name written, "King of kings and Lord of lords." "Then I saw an angel standing in the sun, and with a loud voice he called to all the bireds that fly directly overhead. "Come, gather for the great supper of God, to eat the flesh of kings, the flesh of captains, the flesh of mighty men, the flesh of horses and their riders, and the flesh of all men, both free and slave, both small and great. And I saw the beast and the kings of the earth make war against him who was sitting on the horse and against his army. And the beast was captured, and with hit the false prophet who in its presence had done the signs by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped the image. These two were thrown alive into the lake of fire that burns with sulfur."
Tomorrow we will study more ways man has rejected God and invented worship systems that bring us this much closer to the fulfillment of these final prophecies of the Bible.
Father, I come to You, confessing my sin and asking for Your forgiveness. I thank you, Lord, for You have promised that if I will confess my sins, You will be faithful to forgive me and cleanse me from all unrighteousness. I want to turn from my sins and live in Your will. I ask that You give me the power through Your Holy Spirit to live the right way.
I thank You that Jesus Christ died on the cross, paying the price for my sins, and then rose from the dead. I accept Him now as my Savior, my Lord, and my Friend. Thank You for giving me new life in Christ. I surrender myself to You; make me what You want me to be. In Jesus' name. Amen!
