THE CLIMAX OF THE AGE – MM #115 – NOV-DEC 2010 

 

 

By DON STANTON

 

 “WHAT’S THE WORLD COMING TO?” 

Isn’t that the question that most people are asking these days?

There’s a constant barrage of disasters, crime and crookedness all around us! There’s anxiety, uncertainly and perplexity. Where is it all leading to?

Some readers may ask, “Oh it’s not really that bad, is it?”

Well, let’s take an alphabetical view of the conditions and concerns in the nations at the end of the first decade of the 21st century. (Not all these things will be of the same importance or significance to every reader.  But I believe this is a true but bleak picture of the world in general today.)

WE ARE LIVING IN A WORLD OF

ANXIETY, AND TURMOIL

There are anxieties in just about every family I know; and some of the concerns are about “impossible” problems that have to be put  into the “too hard basket.” 

(Although, nothing is impossible with Almighty God.)

“Look, I am YHWH, the God of all flesh; is anything too difficult for Me?”

“Ah Sovereign YHWH! Look, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and by Your outstretched arm! Nothing is too difficult for You!” (Jeremiah 32: 27, 17)

Concerning the end of the age, the Bible prophecy says:

“But realize this, that in the last days, perilous times will come. For men will be lovers of self, (utterly self-centered), lovers of money … unholy … brutal … treacherous, reckless, conceited … lovers of sensual pleasures rather than lovers of God.”  (2 Timothy 3:1-4)

How true that is today!

THE WORLD’S BURNING  

The prophet Malachi warned:

“The world will burn like a furnace.”  (Malachi 4:1)

Over the past couple of years we have seen enormous forest fire disasters in CALIFORNIA, GREECE, VICTORIA, & TEXAS, and recently, (August 2010), RUSSIA battled hundreds of fires for many weeks.  20% of the Russian wheat crops were wiped out. This led the government to ban grain exports for six months or more.

These shocking disasters are all a foretaste of things to come, for, “The world will burn like a furnace.”

But the world is burning, and will burn, in many ways!

 

     TERRORISM TODAY

 

The World is burning with terrorism.

And Y’shua (Jesus) the Messiah warned: 

“And there will be terrors.” (Luke 21:11)

November 26, 2008, INDIA experienced one of its worst terrorist attacks.

In an attack on the Taj Mahal Hotel, and other hotels and targets in Mumbai, 175 people were killed, and 308 were injured.

Since 9/11 (Sept 11, 2001) in the US, hundreds of terrorist attacks have occurred around the world. You may remember some of them, such as:

SPAIN. March 11/04. The multi train attack killed 191 people and wounded 2050.

LONDON. July 7/05. The attack on the London transport system killed 56 and injured 700.

BALI. Oct 12/02.  The Bali hotel attack killed 202 and injured 209.

BESLAN (North Ossetia, Russia). Sept 2004. In the school hostage crisis, 1100 people were taken hostage. Over 385 were killed, and more than 750 were injured.

And what about the multiple attacks in Greece, N Ireland, Ukraine, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Nepal, many cities in India and Pakistan, then China, Hong Kong, Philippines, Jakarta, Israel, Lebanon, Moscow, Dagestan, Chechnya, Serbia, Rwanda, Colombia, Burma,  Egypt, Somalia, Morocco, Nigeria, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Indonesia, Yemen, Kosovo, Mexico, as well as in many African and South American nations.

There have been terrors! And there will be more terrors!

For Y’shua the Messiah has warned:  “And there will be terrors.” (Luke 21:11)

                    THE FOOD CRISIS!  “FORGET OIL!   

THE NEW GLOBAL CRISIS IS FOOD!” 

In 2008, we saw food riots in many parts of the world, because of exorbitant food prices.

In January 09, warnings were issued of a new emerging crisis, a global food catastrophe that could reach further and be more crippling than anything the world has ever seen.

The credit crunch and the reverberations of soaring oil prices around the world will pale in comparison to what is about to transpire, according to Donald Coxe, global portfolio strategist at BMO Financial Group, speaking at the Empire Club’s 14th annual investment outlook in Toronto.

THE BLACK HORSE – FAMINE    

“And when He opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature saying,

‘Come and see.’ And I looked and saw a black horse; and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, ‘A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius. And do not harm the oil and the wine.” (Revelation 6:5-6)

The rider on the black horse in Revelation 6 represents FAMINE. “A quart of wheat for a denarius” speaks of very exorbitant prices, for a denarius was the equivalent of a full day’s wage.”

This word indicates that in the Tribulation, a small measure of wheat (like a half kilo) will cost a day’s wage !

 

FAMINES IN PAST CENTURIES

According to a Wikipedia list of famines, the past 500 years have witnessed an increase in the frequency of famines:

      15th Century -  6 famines

      16th Century - 10 famines

      17th Century - 24 famines

      18th Century - 28 famines

      19th Century - 30 famines

      20th Century - 44 famines

      21st Century -  already 12 famines

 

20th CENTURY FAMINES DEATH TOLLS

      The 1921 famine in Russia (5 million+ dead)

      The 1928-1929 famine in China (3 million+ dead)

      The 1932-1933 famine in Ukraine (10 million+ dead)

      The 1932-1933  Kazakhstan (1.2 and 1.5 million+ dead)

      The 1936 famine in China (5 million+ dead)

      The 1942-1943 famine in China (1 million+ dead)

      The 1946-1947 Soviet Union famine (1 million+ dead)

      The 1959-1961 Great Chinese Famine is estimated to have killed more than      36 million people.

That’s an estimated 62 million people who perished in these eight famines between 1932 and 1961.

WIDESPREAD DROUGHTS AND FLOODS 

Prolonged and extensive droughts have become regular features in many countries  from ARGENTINA to AUSTRALIA and AFRICA. They have brought very disastrous results to millions.

Droughts are creating severe water shortages in many parts of the world. 

INDIA’S THIRST

Warning of “an “unparalleled water crisis,” a recent study found that 25% of New Delhi households had no access to piped water, and that 27% got water for less than 3 hours a day.

India now uses annually, 829 billion cubic yards of water – the equivalent of the  entire 400 x 100km Lake Erie – the huge inland sea between Canada and the US. And India’s water needs are growing by leaps and bounds.

                                                                                                     

EUPHRATES RIVER IS DRYING UP

Syria is experiencing an economic holocaust which the Syrian regime is trying very hard to hide. The country is drying up, and no less than 250,000 farmers were forced in the past three years to abandon their land and migrate to the large cities. They live in tents, neglected by the regime.

The immense Euphrates River, Syria’s main source of water, is drying up. The Turks are now stopping water flowing from their territory.  Consequently, Syria and Iraq are receiving a declining portion of the water.

Within 10 years, the river, outside the Turkish territory, is expected to dry up completely.  - ynetnews / Aug 3/08

PROPHECY: “The great river, the Euphrates … its water was dried up.”                                                                                                                 (Revelation 16:12)

INCREASING NATURAL DISASTERS

FLOODS, EARTHQUAKES, TSUNAMIS, VOLCANOS, CYCLONES, and TORNADOS are striking nation after nation.

“Then Y’shua said to them, ‘Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be great earthquakes in various places ... and there will be ... on earth, dismay among nations, in perplexity at the roaring of the sea and waves.”  (Luke 21:10-11, 25)

THE PAKISTAN FLOODS

July-September 2010.

Though rain is desperately needed, huge downpours have been producing disastrous flooding which has caused more destruction than the droughts.

The UN described the Pakistan disaster as “the worst monsoon-related floods in living memory.” 20 million people were affected, and about 8 million acres of crops were wiped out.

The disaster began in late July when the rising waters inundated around one-fifth of the country, and destroyed around one million houses, killed around 1,700 people, and injured 2500. More than 90% of the population in the affected areas needed to be evacuated.

Millions were left homeless and stranded. 3½ million children were at risk of waterborne diseases such as cholera and gastro-enteritis.

The recent floods in Pakistan and Victoria, and many other parts of the world, are like all the other “natural disasters” -  they are warnings from the Almighty of the endtime “trial  which is about to come upon the whole world, to try those who live on the earth.” (Revelation 3:10)

EARTHQUAKES

    EARTHQUAKE   7.0 January 12, 2010

DEATH TOLL: Around 200,000   INJURED: 250,000+ HOMELESS: 1½ million.

Although the 7.0 magnitude earthquake did not rank with the greatest quakes on record, its devastation was immense. Haiti will take many years to recover.

 

CHILE’S MASSIVE EARTHQUAKE.  8.8.   Feb 27, 2010.

700 were killed; mostly through the tsunami that followed the quake.

90% of the historic town of Curico was destroyed.

Chile’s 8.8 was the 7th greatest earthquake ever recorded.               

 

The most powerful earthquake ever recorded was the 9.5, in Chile in 1960.

It generated a tsunami that brought destruction, not only in Chile,                            but as far away as Japan.

The Indonesian quake in 2004 that set off the Asian tsunami was 9.0.

There have been at least six earthquakes of  9.0 or above in the last 100 years.

 

CHRISTCHURCH,  NEW ZEALAND -  7.1.   Sept 3, 2010

100,000 homes were damaged, and Christchurch was devastated. Some very powerful aftershocks followed the 7.1.

EARTHQUAKES IN PAST CENTURIES

According to a Wikipedia list of earthquakes, the past 500 years have witnessed the following number of earthquakes described as a magnitude 7.0 or greater:

      15th Century - 2 earthquakes

      16th Century - 3 earthquakes

      17th Century - 7 earthquakes

      18th Century - 13 earthquakes

      19th Century - 29 earthquakes

      20th Century - 123 earthquakes

THE WORLD IS CONSTANTLY SHAKING  

Each year the Earth is now experiencing at least …

one earthquake of magnitude 8+;

ten earthquakes of magnitude 7 to 7.9;

one hundred earthquakes of magnitude 6 to 6.9;

and tens of thousands of quakes less than 6.

 

2010 – INCREASE IN SEISMIC ACTIVITY

In the 30-day period -  24 July to 22 Aug 10 - there were 122 earthquakes, including 21 major quakes above 6.0. (including 6 that were above 7.0)   - Geoscience Australia

All this seismic earthquake activity is a warning of the ultimate earthquake that is scheduled for the Great Tribulation, as the prophecies foretell.

There are two specific prophecies regarding “the big one.”

“For the windows above are opened, and the foundations of the earth shake. The earth is broken asunder, the earth is split through; the earth is shaken violently. The earth reels to and fro like a drunkard, and it totters like a shack, for its transgression is heavy upon it.”  (Isaiah 24:18-20)

“Then there were flashes of lightning and sounds and peals of thunder; and there was a great earthquake, such as there had not been since man came to be upon the earth, so great an earthquake was it, and so mighty. The great city was split into three parts, and the cities of the nations collapsed. And God remembered Babylon the Great and gave her the cup filled with the wine of His furious wrath and indignation. And every island fled away, and the mountains could not be found.”  (Revelation 16:18-20)

HURRICANES, CYCLONES, AND TYPHOONS    

The Messiah said: “And there will be … perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea.”  (Luke 21:25)

They are called Hurricanes in the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico; Typhoons in the north-east Pacific; and Cyclones in the south Pacific and Indian Ocean.

Enormous terror-storms regularly hit the coasts of most nations in the warmer climates. Still in our memories is Hurricane Katrina that battered Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama in August 2005. The city of New Orleans suffered the worst damage.  Four levees broke, and water flooded the city. Damage was estimated at around $90 billion – the costliest hurricane in US history.

 1,836 people died, and 100,000 people were stranded without food, water, phones or power for many days.

Other powerful cyclones have killed tens of thousands. Three of the biggest were:

1970 Bhola cyclone, killed between 300,000 to 500,000 people in East Pakistan (now Bangladesh).

1991 Bangladesh cyclone, killed 138,000 people in the Chittagong region.

2008: Cyclone Nargis, struck the Irrawaddy Delta in Burma, killing over 145,000 people and devastating the country’s former capital and largest city, Rangoon, making it Burma’s deadliest natural disaster in history, and the costliest N. Indian Ocean cyclone on record, and the second deadliest N. Indian Ocean cyclone in recorded history.

TSUNAMIS

A tsunami is a series of large waves of extremely long wave length and duration, generated by a violent undersea disturbance – such as an earthquake of 7.5 or above.

The Dec 26, 2004 quake in INDONESIA was measured at 9.0. It was the 5th deadliest quake ever recorded, and it resulted in the Asian Tsunami, which was the worse tsunami in living memory. It wiped out over 230,000 people.

Seismologists estimated the power of the 9.0 quake as equivalent to one million Hiroshima atom bombs.

The Messiah said: “And there will be … perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea.” (Luke 21:25)

VOLCANOES 

ICELAND -  April-May 2010

On April 15, Iceland’s glacier-covered Eyjafjallajokull volcano erupted for a second time in less than a month, melting ice, shooting thick smoke and steam into the air and forcing hundreds of people to flee rising floodwaters.

This was the volcano’s first major eruption since 1821. Having lain dormant all these years, it came to life and made headlines when it transformed most of western Europe and Scandinavia into an unprecedented no-fly zone.

The volcanic ash forced the cancellation of thousands of flights and disrupted air traffic across northern Europe for several weeks, stranding thousands of passengers.

This horrific volcano was certainly an awesome foretaste of the coming Great Tribulation. The prophet Joel describes that time in these words:

“For the day of YHWH is coming. Surely it is near - a day of darkness and gloom; a day of clouds and gross darkness. As the dawn is spread over the mountains, so there is a great and mighty people coming. There has never been anything like it, nor will there ever be in the ages to come. A fire consumes before them and behind them a flame burns ...”                                                                                   (Joel 2:1-3)

“I will display wonders in the sky and on the earth, blood, fire and billows of smoke. The sun will be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and awesome day of YHWH comes.”  (Joel 2:30-31)

TORNADOS   

Tornados are violent, terrifying storms with very strong winds which rotate in a column of air. They are similar to, but more powerful than whirlwinds. Often called “twisters,” they come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colours. A tornado moves over land very rapidly, pulverising most of what lies in its path.

The US in particular, experiences an abundance of tornadoes. In 2009 it had 1156 tornadoes in the year.

 

The most extreme tornado in recorded history was the Tri-State Tornado, which roared through parts of Missouri, Illinois, and Indiana in March 1925. That “twister” holds the world records for longest path length (352 km), longest duration (3½  hours), and fastest forward speed for a significant tornado (117km/h). In addition, it was the deadliest single tornado in US history (695 dead).

The most extensive tornado outbreak on record was the Super Outbreak, which affected a large area of the central US and southern Ontario in Canada, on April 3 and 4, 1974. Not only did this outbreak feature 148 tornadoes in 18 hours, many were very violent. This outbreak had 16 tornadoes on the ground at the same time during its peak.

The deadliest tornado in world history was in Bangladesh in April 1989, which killed approximately 1300 people. 

 

SIGNS AND DANGERS FROM SPACE

                                                                         

Again Y’shua the Messiah said: “And there will be terrors and great signs from heaven.” … “And there will be signs in the sun and moon and stars, and upon earth despair among nations, with perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. Men’s hearts will faint from terror, being apprehensive of what is coming upon the world; for the very powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. But when these things begin to take place, straighten yourselves and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.” (Luke 21:11, 25-28)

There is today, a very real concern about the threats to earth from asteroids, meteors and comets. There were three close calls last year (2009) …

 

THE NEAR MISSES OF 2009 

 

March 2/09.  Asteroid 2009 DD45 - about the size of a 10-storey building - flew past Earth at less than 45,000 km. An impact could have had the force of a thousand atomic bombs.

March 25/09.  Asteroid 2009 TC3 hurtles to Earth.  The car-sized asteroid exploded into a brilliant meteor shower as it crashed into Earth’s atmosphere.

 

EARTH GETS CLOSEST CALL

November 7/09.  A 7-metre wide asteroid came within 14,000 km of hitting the earth. Astronomers spotted the rock only 15 hours before its closest approach. Its orbit brought it 30 times nearer than the moon which is 402,336 km away. It was the third closest approach to earth of any near miss asteroids on records. 

 

 

1997 XF11

In 1997, astronomers discovered a 1.6 km wide asteroid that will make a close approach to earth on October 2028. It was initially thought it could hit the earth but later calculations indicated that it would miss us this time round.  But to give you an idea of what we are talking about, see this artist’s impression of that asteroid over Manhattan, New York.

IMPRESSION OF A 1.6 km WIDE ASTEROID OVER NEW YORK

The Book of Revelation gives a prophecy about the earth being bombarded by “stars”  –  asteroids,  comets  or meteors.

“And the stars of the sky fell to earth, as a fig tree casts its unripe figs when shaken by a strong wind.  The sky vanished like a scroll being rolled up; and every mountain and island were moved out of its place.

“Then the kings of the earth, the great men, the generals, the rich, the mighty, and every slave and free man hid themselves in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains. They called to the mountains and to the rocks, ‘Fall on us and hide us from the Presence of Him (the Almighty) who sits on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb; for the great day of His wrath has come; and who is able to stand (before it)?’” (Revelation 6:13-17)

This will happen during the 7-year trial that’s soon to come on the whole earth. And my reader, we should not be indignant about the fact that Divine wrath is to come on the “lovely” generations who are living on planet earth in the 21st century.  Just look at the …

 

RAPIDLY DETERIORATING CONDITIONS

 POLITICAL          ECONOMIC           RELIGIOUS

SPIRITUAL       MORAL       SOCIAL

i i i i i i

Today’s society and its institutions are becoming increasing corrupt and violent. It’s like it was in the days of Noah.

“Now the earth was corrupt in God’s sight; the earth was full of violence. God saw how corrupt the earth had become; for all humanity on the earth had corrupted its ways.” (Genesis 6:11-12)

The apostle Paul also described conditions in the endtimes:

“Realize this, that in the last days perilous times will come. For men will be lovers of self, (self-centered), lovers of money … unholy … brutal … treacherous, reckless, conceited … lovers of sensual pleasures rather than lovers of God;  holding to a form of godliness (spiritual life), although they have denied its power.”  (2 Timothy 3:1-4)

Society was once generally conservative and restrained; now it is permissive, godless, with fast declining principles and morality, and with a tolerance of evil and an intolerance of the Gospel of Christ.

There are widespread drug and alcohol addictions, increasing lawlessness, corruption, abuse and sex crimes. The cities of the nations are becoming like Sodom and Gomorrah.

    WHATEVER HAPPENED TO GREAT BRITAIN?

After 13 years of Labour government, Britain is now in great disorder and distress. The new Prime Minster David Cameron described the situation in a by-election seat in July 2008. He said:

“Our mission is to repair our broken society – to heal the wounds of poverty, crime, social disorder and deprivation that are steadily making this country a grim, joyless place to live in, for far too many people …The thread that links it all together passes, yes, through family breakdown, welfare dependency, debt, drugs, poverty, poor policing, inadequate housing, and failing schools, but it is a thread that goes deeper, as we see a society that is in danger of losing its sense of personal responsibility, social responsibility, common decency and, yes, even public morality.”

Empires have come, and empires have gone!

Another great man who bemoaned his broken city and society, in BC 443, was Nehemiah.  He said:

“You see the bad situation we are in, that Jerusalem lies in ruins, and its gates have been burned by fire. Come let us rebuild the wall of Jerusalem that we may no longer be in disgrace.” (Nehemiah 2:17)

                 

THE INCREASING REJECTION OF THE WORD OF GOD

Today, newspapers and journals do not hesitate to stimulate doubts about the Word of God, as we see in this TIME front page some time ago.  “Is the Bible Fact or Fiction?” The question itself raises doubts. But of course, the modern generation dismisses God’s Word.

Obscure Bible Verses ?

President Barack Obama declared in one of his campaign speeches, “Nobody should be concerned with a few obscure Bible verses.” (In fact there are quite a few Bible verses Mr Obama is not concerned about!)

A commentator said: “Obama’s very poignant statement will go down in infamy as the US government implodes from within.”  President Obama also said:

“We do not consider ourselves a Christian nation.”

Instead, he said, “We are a nation of citizens,” essentially assigning loyalty to ‘the state’ rather than loyalty to God.

Well, the US is still a “Christian” country, and it has a lot of true believers.

But while the US government proclaims liberty of religion for all, the increasing requirement is that one’s faith should be kept private. There should be no public display of Christianity, or sharing of it. Christians have already been arrested in the US for evangelising. Christian students have been reprimanded for making a Christian comment.

PASTOR ARRESTED FOR SHARING GOSPEL WITH MUSLIMS

Sept 8/10. A pastor is facing a court ordeal after sharing the gospel with Muslims - in Kansas.

About 14 people, including three senior pastors, went to the local mosque to distribute to Muslims, packets containing the books of John and Romans in English and Arabic, and a DVD with testimonies of former Muslims.

Pastor Mark Holick was one of those passing out the packets to people leaving the mosque. When local police officers arrived on the scene, he was handcuffed, then detained in a patrol car.  When he repeatedly asked what crime he had committed, they finally told him that he was being charged with ‘loitering’ and ‘failure to disperse’.”

Asked if this episode occurred in Saudi Arabia, Holick replied: “No, this was in Wichita, Kansas.”

ALARMING ECONOMIC CONDITIONS

THE GLOBAL FINANCIAL CRISIS

The world is in the grip of the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression of 1929.  Recovery is superficial. Alarms are going off. And the Bible has warned of a financial disaster in the endtimes:

“Come now, you rich, weep and wail because of the miseries that are coming upon you. Your wealth has become rotten, and your garments are moth-eaten. Your gold and silver have corroded, and their corrosion will testify against you and will consume your flesh like fire.”  (James 5:1-3)

 

    IMF CHIEF: WORLD IN “GREAT RECESSION” 

March 11/09. The global economy will shrink this year as the world enters “a Great Recession,” says the head of the International Monetary Fund. 

Speaking in a taped interview with French television Dominique Strauss-Kahn said economic data has worsened since January, when the IMF forecast a global growth in gross domestic product of 0.5% this year. 

EU PRESIDENT: 

U.S. ECONOMIC PLANS ARE “A ROAD TO HELL”

“Czech Prime Minister Mirek Topolanek, whose country in 2009 held the rotating EU presidency, told the European Parliament that President Obama’s massive stimulus package and banking bailout ‘will undermine the liquidity of the global financial market.’

Topolanek called the US spend-your-way-out-of-the-crisis plan (involving $9.3 trillion in new debt over the next decade), an absolute disastrous approach. He slammed US plans to spend its way out of recession as “road to hell.”

     THE EURO MELTDOWN  

2010. In spite of the newly enhanced federal status of the EU, the EURO currency came under attack, and began to lose its value.  This was symptomatic of the alarming economic conditions throughout the EU.

In May, Greece came to the brink of the abyss – financial collapse.  It was finally bailed out after a bitter debate in the Union.  The European leaders demanded that Greece employ strong austerity measures. They did, and faced a hostile population.

But then Portugal, Ireland, Spain and Italy were found to be in a similar situation. And next Britain and France were caught up in the financial meltdown, and their leaders also had to take similar tough measures.

And it still continues. It is a long way “to get out of the woods.”

‘SOCIAL EXPLOSION’ FROM WORLD JOBS CRISIS

Sept 14/10. America and Europe face the worst jobs crisis since the 1930s and risk “an explosion of social unrest” unless they tread carefully, the International Monetary Fund has warned.

“The labor market is in dire straits. The Great Recession has left behind a wasteland of unemployment,” said Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the IMF’s chief.

He said a double-dip recession remains unlikely but stressed that the world has not yet escaped a deeper social crisis. He called it a grave error to think the West was safe again after teetering so close to the abyss last year.

“We are not safe,” he said.  Spain has seen the biggest shock, with unemployment near 20%.  - www.telegraph.co.uk

THE DECLINE OF THE UNITED STATES 

                                                                       

SUPERPOWER!   SUPER-DEBTOR!   THE U.S. IS BANKRUPT!

 

In early 2010, the U.S. government had a debt of more than fourteen trillion three hundred billion dollars.  

$14,300,000,000,000

                 THE  UNITED  STATES’  RECESSION       

The US prime mortgage lending caused a huge debt balloon that burst and sparked the financial crisis. As the US economy tightened, countless thousands lost their jobs and their homes.

RECORD YEAR FOR FORECLOSURES AS UNEMPLOYMENT RISES

In 2009, a record 2.8 million US households were threatened with foreclosure. In December alone, banks repossessed more than 92,000 homes. More than 3 million homes are expected to enter some phase of foreclosure this year.

U.S.A:  RECORD 31.8 MILLION ON FOOD STAMPS

March 5/09.  31.8 million Americans received food stamps at the latest count – with an increase of 700,000 recipients in a single month.

“DOLLAR CRISIS WILL LOOM IF U.S. DOESN’T CURB DEBT”

The United States must soon raise taxes or cut government spending to curb its debt. Experts say failure to act will risk a crippling dollar crisis as investor confidence ebbs.

BANKRUPTCY OF U.S. IS NOW CERTAIN    

US government debt in early 2010 stood at $14.3 trillion. And its current budget deficit is $1.5 trillion. In  the  next  12  months,  the  US Treasury will have to refinance $3.5 trillion ($2 trillion in short-term debt, and an estimated $1.5 trillion in additional deficit spending.)

Today, foreigners own 44% of all US debts, which means the US owes foreign creditors at least $880 billion in the next 12 months – an amount far larger than its reserves.

Foreign creditors are now unwilling to buy US debt, and so the Treasury will resort to “printing” more money. This will lead to the devaluation of the US dollar, and high inflation.

   JAPAN’S STAGGERING DEBT  

September 18/10

The US is not the only nation with a debt problem. It’s a worldwide problem.

Japan’s debt load has the nation in a death grip. Its national debt is more than 200% of its GDP (gross domestic product), and economists predict it will balloon out to 250% by 2015. Japan uses over 60% of its entire tax revenues to pay the interest on their national debt - and that with an interest rate of only .05%.

The need to service the debt has sucked the life out of the economy. The Japanese have proven that you can’t just spend your way out of financial trouble.

Japan has a rapidly aging population that will eventually bankrupt their retirement services.

                   THE  AUSTRALIAN NATIONAL DEBT     

AUSTRALIA’S total debt is threatening to crash through the $1 trillion mark for the first time. This is huge in relation to the Australia’s GDP which was $1.2 trillion last year.

Government Debt is above 100 billion dollars, and it will reach $153 billion within two to three years. The Federal Government will pay $48 billion in interest over the next four years.

The current Australian Federal Government has been  borrowing $100 million every day to keep going –  that’s one billion every 10 days; $3 billion per month, and $36 billion additional debt each year.

THE “PROPERTY BUBBLE”

In Australia, we face a potentially disastrous “Property Bubble,” according to Jeremy Grantham, a visiting American fund manager. Last June he bluntly assessed Australia’s property “bubble” as a “time bomb.”  Grantham forecast a 42+% collapse in Australian property.

 Our market is “twice the size” of what it should be, he stated. “The property bubble is hanging over Australia’s economy, and is threatening to come down upon it with the ferocity of an avalanche.”

THE WORLD “DERIVATIVES BUBBLE” 

What is a derivative? It’s a financial contract to hedge risk and protect bad loans. It is an agreement between two parties that has a value determined by the price of something else, or a future outcome.  Derivatives provide “hedge funds” - a “security” whose price is dependent upon or derived from one or more underlying assets such as stocks, bonds and commodities. Credit-default swaps are the most common type of derivative. They can be totally artificial and used to manipulate, and to cover huge debts.

The total value of all derivatives worldwide is estimated to be between

$600 Trillion and $1 .5 Quadrillion dollars.

 

DISTRESS OF NATIONS

Y’shua the Messiah warned: “And there shall be ...

upon the earth, distress of nations, with perplexity.” 

(Luke 21:25)

The nations, today, especially those in the Middle East, are in great anxiety and perplexity, because of the possibility, even the probability, of a nuclear conflict in the region.

But there are also a multitude of other crises that are causing great distress, such as the ....

 

 

WORLDWIDE REFUGEE  PROBLEM

15 MILLION PEOPLE SEEKING REFUGE     

 

TIME magazine in its cover story of 5 July 2010, says over 15 million people are trapped in a terrible limbo; unsafe at home and unwanted anywhere else.

Australia, Europe, the US, India and even Israel are trying to cope with the problem of illegal immigration.

UN chiefs discuss a proposal - a new

“International Migration Governance Framework”

UN Secretary General Ban ki-Moon and about 60 of his top lieutenants — the top brass of the entire UN system — spent a weekend in September 2010, at a remote Austrian Alpine retreat, discussing ways to put their sprawling organization in charge of the world’s agenda.

Details concerning the two-day, closed-door sessions were closely guarded. But position papers for the meeting included “How to capitalize on the global tide of migrants from poor nations to rich ones, to encompass a new “international migration governance framework.”

MAN-MADE DISASTERS

It is not only “nature” that is causing great disasters; man himself is competing for the destruction of the earth.  Look at …

AMERICA’S  GREATEST ENVIRONMENTAL  CATASTROPHE

                                                                                         

THE DEEP HORIZON  BP OIL DISASTER

 

On April 20/10, the Deep Horizon BP Oil Rig in the Gulf of Mexico exploded, killing 11 men, and setting off the USA’s greatest natural tragedy.

This was not a mere “spill. It was oil gushing out of the bowels of the earth at the rate of 60,000 barrels of oil each day.

60,000 barrels = 2½ million gallons,

or approx 10 million litres.   (1 barrel = 42 gallons)

The total oil “spilled” from April 20 to July 31, 

was around 250 million gallons.

More than three months after the explosion, BP claimed the well head was finally capped.

THE LASTING MESS. The oil company used more than 1.8 million gallons of chemical dispersants on the huge swathes of oil, between late April and the time the well was capped in mid-July.  Critics have warned that the dispersants used could have a devastating effect on marine life in the Gulf, and upon the food chain.

About 20% of the oil evaporated, was burned or skimmed out of the ocean. About 80% is still in the Gulf.  Researchers say the dispersants have forced the oil down to the bottom of an undersea canyon where Plankton and other organisms showed a “strong toxic response” to the crude.

Long ago, God spoke against a “mountain” that was destroying the whole earth. The “mountain” was the kingdom of Babylon which was conquering and pillaging the nations around.

“‘Look! I am against you, O destroying mountain, who destroys the whole earth,’ declares YHWH, ‘and I will stretch out My hand against you, and roll you down from the crags, and I will make you a burnt out mountain’.” (Jeremiah 51:25)

Today modern “Babylon” is in the process of destroying the earth. (“Babylon” represents the new world system that is opposed to the Kingdom of God. That system we see working deeply in all of our countries. And it includes the nuclear armaments buildup that will shortly destroy to an extraordinary degree.)

                       THE BUILDUP OF MISSILES AND   

WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION

Some of our most frightful weapons of mass destruction are ...

                                          NUCLEAR BOMBS

                                          CHEMICAL WEAPONS

                                          BIOLOGICAL WEAPONS

                                          GERM WARFARE

                                          EMP – (Electro-Magnetic Pulse)

To deliver such weapons the militaries need a whole range of launch vehicles – land-based, bomber-based, Drone (pilot-less) aerial vehicle-based, ship-based, submarine-based, and satellite-based, ballistic missiles, including ...

      ICBMs (Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles)

      MIRVs (Multiple-Independently-targeted vehicles)

And to protect themselves and their allies, the nations need constantly developing ...

      DEFENCE SHIELDS

      ANTI-TANK, ANTI-AIRCRAFT

      ANTI-SHIP and ANTI-MISSILE SYSTEMS.

Our modern bows and arrows, spears and swords, are very expensive stuff. Annual Global military expenditure (2009) was over $1.5 trillion ($1,500,000,000,000).

Much of the armaments produced are not for one’s own national defence, but for sale to other nations.

In 2009, the global military expenditure was shared by the US - 46.5% ;  China 6.6%;  France 4.2%;  UK 3.8%; Russia 3.5%;  rest of the world 35.4%

ELECTRO-MAGNETIC PULSE WEAPONS

 

A SINGLE NUKE COULD DESTROY AMERICA

By Newt Gingrich and William Forstchen

One small nuclear weapon, delivered by an ICBM can destroy the United States by maximizing the effect of the resultant electromagnetic pulse upon detonation.

An electromagnetic pulse (EMP) is a by-product of detonating an atomic bomb above the Earth’s atmosphere. When a nuclear weapon is detonated in space, the gamma rays emitted trigger a massive electrical disturbance in the upper atmosphere.

Moving at the speed of light, this overload will short out all electrical equipment, power grids and delicate electronics on the earth’s surface. In fact, it would take only one to three weapons exploding above the continental United States to wipe out our entire grid and transportation network. It might take years to recover from this, if ever.

This is not science fiction. If you doubt this, spend a short amount of time skimming the Report of the Commission to Assess the Threat to the United States from Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) Attack, of April 2008. You will come away sobered.

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is a Senior Fellow at the American Enterprise Institute. William Forstchen is the author of “One Second After,” an account of a town struggling to survive after an EMP weapon is used against the United States.   www.newsmax.com March 29/09

THE MIDDLE EAST CRUCIBLE

 

IRAN PLANS TO KNOCK OUT U.S. ELECTRONIC INFRASTUCTURE

WITH ONE NUCLEAR (EMP) BOMB

Iran is believed to be, not only covertly developing nuclear weapons, but also testing ballistic missiles specifically designed to destroy America’s technical infrastructure, effectively neutralizing the world’s lone superpower, according to US intelligence sources, top scientists and western missile industry experts.  - WorldNetDaily, August 25/08

IRAN’S NUCLEAR PROGRAM, AND ITS THREATS

TO THE US, ISRAEL AND THEIR ALLIES

As everyone knows, the Iranian president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, has called for death of Israel and the USA.

Now Iran is close to producing nuclear weapons; it has also developed long-range delivery systems, and it is building or purchasing every type of weapon – planes, submarines and missiles, and it has launched a satellite network.

 

 

IRAN WILL HAVE A NUCLEAR BOMB THIS YEAR

Jan 2010.  A secret intelligence dossier currently being reviewed by US, Israeli, German, and Austrian governments reveals secret Iranian tests and hierarchies of power dedicated to the successful development of a nuclear bomb, and predicts that Iran will have a primitive nuclear bomb by year’s end. 

 

          

 RUSSIA, TURKEY, IRAN, & THE DEVELOPING  

NORTHERN CONFEDERATION

If you look at the prophecy in Ezekiel 38, concerning the Northern Confederation led by Rosh (Russia), you will see that Turkey and Persia (Iran) are embedded in this powerful endtime alliance.

“The Sovereign Master, YHWH, says: Listen! I am against you, O Gog, chief prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal. I will turn you around, put hooks into your jaws and bring you out with your whole army - your horses and horsemen all fully armed, and a great horde with large and small shields, all of them brandishing swords.

Persia (Iran), Cush (Ethiopia), and Put (Libya) will be with them, all with shields and helmets; Gomer (Germany) also with all its troops; and the House of Togarmah from the far north (Turkey and the Turkic people of Central Asia) with all its troops - many nations with you.” (Ezekiel 38:3-6)

RUSSIA SUPPLIES NUCLEAR FUEL TO IRAN

Russia helped Iran cross a major threshold on Aug 21/10, by loading Iran’s first nuclear reactor with fuel.

The activation of the Bushehr reactor, apart from providing a moral and psychological boost to supporters of the nuclear program inside Iran, will be seen as a victory for Iran in its confrontation with America and Europe over its agenda to develop nuclear weapons.

Many observers are deeply concerned because Bushehr, now fuelled and operating, “will produce plutonium 239, which can be used to make nuclear weapons.”  It may now be impossible to stop Iran from building nuclear weapons.

IRAN NOW A “NUCLEAR STATE”   

President Ahmadinejad’s declaration in mid 2010, that his country is now a ‘nuclear nation’ ... and that it can enrich uranium to above 80%, exposes the real aim of Iran’s nuclear program – that is, to produce nuclear warheads.

 

SHOULD WE LET IRAN HAVE NUCLEAR WEAPONS?

Incredibly, a growing chorus of “experts” says yes.  The reality is that diplomacy, talks and sanctions against Iran have failed. And as former US Ambassador to the UN, John Bolton, said recently:

“I don’t think there’s a ghost of a chance that the Obama Administration will use force against Iran’s nuclear weapons program. If anyone will do it, it’s going to have to be Israel - and I don’t know what Israel is going to do ...

“I am very worried that Obama’s fallback position is to accept an Iran with nuclear weapons. I think that can have potentially catastrophic consequences in the Middle East and beyond - but I think that’s where the Obama Administration is.”

                                                                                                                              

THE NUCLEAR RACE IS ON!

Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Jordan, Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, Sudan and Turkey have all initiated nuclear programs. As Iran has gone nuclear, these countries will beat a path to any number of nuclear bomb stores.

LEBANON MUST BUILD NUCLEAR REACTOR

Aug 24/10.  Hassan Nasrallah has his sights set on a nuclear reactor in Lebanon.

EGYPT ANNOUNCES SITE OF ITS FIRST NUCLEAR PLANT

Aug 26/10. Egypt’s President Hosni Mubarak announced that the country’s first nuclear power plant will be built at El Dabaa on the Mediterranean coast.

KUWAIT TO LAUNCH NUCLEAR PROGRAM

Sept 13/10. Kuwait will build four nuclear reactors over the next 12 years, a national nuclear energy official said.

TURKEY & RUSSIAN DEFENCE SYSTEMS

Turkey  has  expressed  interest  in  buying  air  defence systems and combat helicopters from Russia, a Russian defence industry official said. -  April 27/09 

ERDOGAN       ISRAEL’S BREAKUP WITH TURKEY

Ten years ago, Turkey was Israel’s best friend in the region.  But relations between Israel’s government, and Turkey’s Islamic administration led by PM Recep Tayyip Erdogan, have been deteriorating since Israel’s 3-week war in Gaza which began on December 27, 2008.

R T Erdogan came to office in 2002.

Over the past two years, Turkey has begun to distance itself from Israel. On the other hand it has established close relations with the anti-Israel nations and movements. Today it has become one of Israel’s most aggressive enemies.

THE MARMARA FLOTILLA  

 

MAY 31, 2010   A fleet of six ships set sail from Europe and Turkey, with the goal of crashing through Israel’s blockade of the Gaza coast.

This attempt led to a violent clash in which seven Israeli commandos were beaten, shot and wounded, and nine violent activists on the leading ship, the Marmara, were killed. The flotilla finally surrendered, and were escorted to the Israeli port of Ashdod.

TURKEY’S AGGRESSIVE ROLE

The most significance part of the Marmara affair, from the prophetic point of view, is Turkey’s involvement - it sponsored the flotilla!  And Turkey is now establishing a new alliance with Iran, Russia, Syria and Lebanon.

TURKEY WARMING UP TO SYRIA

In 2010, Turkey and Syria began their first-ever joint land forces exercise as part of a three-day drill that Ankara said will boost friendship, cooperation and confidence between the two countries.

TURKEY - LEBANON

Ankara has announced it is proceeding with a massive weapons sale to Lebanon despite Israeli objections due to the growing dominance of the Hizb’ullah terrorist organization in Lebanese politics.

IRAN CLINCHES GRIP ON LEBANON

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad plans to visit Lebanon on Oct. 13-14/10, specifically to clinch Iran’s grip on Lebanon and its build-up as Iran’s forward front for retaliation should Israel venture to strike its nuclear facilities.

Lebanese President Gen. Michel Suleiman phoned Ahmadinejad on Sept. 11 to say that the Lebanese people were “eagerly awaiting” his coming, and stressed that henceforth the Lebanese national army would fight Israel shoulder to shoulder with its comrades in Hizb’ullah.

ISRAEL GEARING UP TO COUNTER

‘MOTHER OF ALL FLOTILLAS’

Sept 7/10. Israel is preparing for what is being described in the IDF as the “mother of all flotillas,” which could include up to 20 different ships planning to set sail for the Gaza Strip in the coming months.

The flotilla is being organized by a coalition of NGOs from Europe and the United States, including a group calling itself European Jews for a Just Peace.

“We  hope  to  have  a  broad  coalition  from  European countries, and also maybe the United States,” Dror Feiler, an Israeli-Swedish musician and artist who lives in Stockholm – and one of the organizers behind the flotilla – told The Jerusalem Post. “We would like it to be double the size of the last flotilla, with at least a dozen ships and more than a thousand people.”  - Jerusalem Post

ISRAEL SURROUNDED BY HOSTILE NATIONS 

“O God! Look, Your enemies are roaring; and those who hate You have raised their heads. They craftily plot against Your people, and conspire against Your hidden, treasured ones. They have said, ‘Come, and let us destroy them as a nation, that the name of Israel may be remembered no more.’ For they have conspired together with one mind; they make a pact against You.” (Psalm 83:1-5)

IRAN, TURKEY, SYRIA, HIZB’ULLAH, LEBANON, HAMAS IN GAZA and PALESTINIANS in THE WEST BANK and AL-QAIDA constitute the “enemies of the LORD” immediately surrounding Israel and Mt Zion.

The 22-nation Arab League with 360 million people are also basically against Israel. EGYPT and JORDAN maintain fragile peace relationships with the Jewish state at present.

   The United Nations

passes far more resolutions against Israel than against any other nation.

Bible prophecy is very clear, that Jerusalem will be besieged and plundered.

The Almighty says: “I will make Jerusalem a very heavy rock for all the nations. All who try to move it will be severely injured.” … “For I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem to fight against it, and the city will be captured, the houses plundered, and the women raped. Half of the city will go into captivity, but the rest of the people will not be exiled from the city.”  (Zechariah 12:2-3; 14:2)

Jerusalem is called the City of God, Mt Zion the City of the Messiah - the Great King.  It is the city that will be capital of the whole world during the 1000-year Kingdom of God on earth.  It is the city that is coveted by Satan, for he will install his chosen man – the Antichrist - as world ruler during the 3½ year Satanic global regime.

Because of the extremely spiritual significance of Jerusalem, Israel is the most enticing, tantilising, frustrating, provocative, admirable nation in the world.

So it is not surprising that we see the nations of the world all putting their hands on Jerusalem in some way or the other. World leaders, including the Pope, are lining up to lecture Israel on what it should do to bring peace. It’s all based on their own powers of rationalism.

AHMADINEJAD: “ISRAEL IS A CORRUPT MICROBE” 

Apr 18/10. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has proclaimed Israel a corrupt microbe on its way to collapse. “The will of the regional nations, and that after 60 odd years, is that the root of this corrupt microbe, (which is the main reason for insecurity in the region), be pulled out.”

Mar 12/10. Ahmadinejad warns aggression won’t save the “most criminal regime in the world.” The Palestinians and the nations of the Middle East will be rid of a “bad omen” once Israel is annihilated, he said.

OBAMA PLEDGED TO SELL ISRAEL OUT,

 IN EXCHANGE FOR “VICTORY” IN AFGHANISTAN

Last year (2009), President Obama is said to have pledged to Saudi Arabia that the US would force Israel to withdraw from eastern Jerusalem and the West Bank by 2012.

Diplomatic sources said Obama relayed a pledge to King Abdullah that he would take any measure necessary to ensure an Israeli withdrawal from the West Bank and Jerusalem over the next 18 months.

The sources said Obama relayed the pledge to Abdullah during the president’s trip to Riyadh in June 2009, four months after he assumed office, in exchange for Abdullah’s help to arrange for the end of the Taliban war in Afghanistan.  – Washington Report / July 4/10

EU TO ISRAEL: “ACCEPT ’TWO-STATES’ OR ELSE!”

The European Union (EU) has resorted to making vague threats against Israel’s Prime Minister, Binyamin Netanyahu, to pressure him to support the “the two-state solution,” which calls for the creation of an Arab state of Palestine inside the current borders of the Jewish State.     - Arutz Sheva /March 30/09

SARKOZY CONDEMNS ISRAELI CONSTRUCTION

Mar 30/10. French President Nicolas Sarkozy said his country stands with the US in condemning Israeli settlement activity in East Jerusalem.  Shame!!

CAMERON’S ANTI-ISRAEL STANCE

Aug 2/10.  At a press conference in Ankara standing side by side with the Islamic world’s latest anti-Semitic hero, Turkish PM Erdogan, the British PM David Cameron made it clear where his affections lie. Siding with Erdogan, he lashed out at Israel in carefully chosen and loaded terms, saying, “The Israeli attack on the Gaza flotilla was completely unacceptable … Gaza cannot and must not be allowed to remain a prison camp.”

Erdogan pumped Cameron’s hand, jumped in front of the microphone and compared Israel to Somalian pirates.

The Israeli former Israeli deputy minister of defence, Ephraim Sneh lashed back:

“Cameron is right – Gaza is a prison camp, but those who control the prison are Hamas. I’m totally against the double standards of a nation which fights the Taliban but is showing its solidarity with their brothers, Hamas … It’s very regrettable that the British PM doesn’t understand that. Cameron doesn’t understand that 1.5 million people live in Gaza under the repressive regime of Hamas – and yet he blames Israel.

   JORDAN: “ISRAEL MUST ACCEPT PALESTINIAN STATE”

Jordan’s King Abdullah pressed PM Benjamin Netanyahu to immediately commit to the establishment of a Palestinian state, as the monarch made a sweeping review of  the  Muslim  world’s  conflicts  with Israel.   - May 15/09

POPE CALLS FOR A PALESTINIAN STATE  

May 11/09. Pope Benedict XVI offered his support for the Palestinians’ right to a homeland, as he continued his Middle East tour in the West Bank. Speaking in Bethlehem, the birthplace of Jesus Christ, the Pope called for a “just and lasting” peace in the region.

RABBI REPLIES TO POPE: “GO SPLIT ROME”

If Pope Benedict XVI so fervently supports a Palestinian state – which would split Jerusalem – he also should divide Rome, charged the leader of a coalition of more than 350 Israeli rabbinic leaders.   - worldnetdaily.com

“ISRAEL SHOULD CEDE JERUSALEM SOVEREIGNTY

A  Washington think-tank  says;  “An  Interim  neutral administration should govern Jerusalem” -  1 July 09

THE PA - ARAB RESPONSE

The Islamic nations are not at all willing for a neutral status for Jerusalem. Their angry response is:

“Jerusalem is no home for Jews and Christians.”

 

              NETANYAHU AGREES TO A PALESTINIAN STATE

                                                WITH FOUR CONDITIONS

1.  The state must be demilitarized   

2.  Palestinians must recognise Israel as a Jewish state

3.  Jerusalem will remain united under Israel sovereignty

4.  Palestinian refugees must be resettled in Palestinian and Arab lands.

But will Netanyahu stick to this position?

 

WARS AND MORE WARS

The Messiah Y’shua, warned: “You will be hearing of wars and rumours of wars … Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places.” (Matthew 24:6-7)

THE PENTAGON’S NEW MILITARY STRATEGIES

The US military leadership says that it must focus on fighting multiple wars, from cyber-attacks to terrorism, and they have revised the previous objective of being equipped to fight two major conflicts at any time.

The Pentagon has about 400,000 U.S. military personnel stationed overseas.

According to a Wikipedia list of wars, the past 500 years have witnessed an increase in the frequency of wars:

            15th Century - 29 wars

            16th Century - 59 wars

            17th Century - 75 wars

            18th Century - 69 wars

            19th Century - 294 wars

            20th Century - 278 wars

The 21st Century has already witnessed 55 wars.

For most of human history, wars were fought through individual hand-to-hand combat. But the past few hundred years have witnessed the ascension of more accurate guns, machine guns, and aerial bombing. Today, a single weapon of mass destruction can kill hundreds of thousands of people.

AL-QAIDA COULD PROVOKE A NEW INDIA-PAKISTAN WAR

Jan 21/10. “Al-Qaida is seeking to de-stabilise the entire South Asia region and could trigger a war between nuclear-armed Pakistan and India,” said US Defence Secretary Robert Gates during a visit to New Delhi.

Groups under Al-Qaida’s “syndicate” in Afghanistan and Pakistan are trying “to destabilise not just Afghanistan and Pakistan, but potentially the whole region by provoking a conflict perhaps between India and Pakistan through some provocative act.”

CHINA    HU JINTAO

A GROWING SUPERPOWER THE LEADING KING OF THE EAST

China is speeding up its military buildup and developing high-technology forces. It is producing an awesome range of military capabilities. In 2008, China spent up to $US140 billion on its military.

The “King of the East” has deployed over 2,000 short-range ballistic missiles (SRBM) to garrisons opposite Taiwan, and is adding more than 100 missiles per year, including more advanced systems.

China has an army of 2,255,000 active personnel, and a reserve of 1,200,000 personnel. It has more than 600 million men and women who are available for military service.

The Book of Revelation tells of the “Kings of the East” coming across to the Middle East at the end of the Great Tribulation, for the Battle of Armageddon.

“The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up to prepare the way for the kings from the rising of the sun - the East … Then they gathered the kings together to the place called in Hebrew, Har-Megiddo (Armageddon).”  (Revelation 16:12, 16)

 

  THE EXPANSION OF FEDERAL EUROPE

Rebuilding the Endtime Roman Empire

The 27-nation European Union has its commission’s headquarters in Brussels, Belgium, and its parliament in Strasbourg, France.

In October 2009, the 27 nations of the EU ratified the Lisbon Treaty which provides the powerful block with a de facto federal constitution. 

One of the first things the Union did under the Lisbon Treaty was to establish two new high positions; a long-term European Council President, and an enhanced role of the Head of EU Foreign Affairs.

HERMAN VAN ROMPUY    

THE APPOINTED PRESIDENT OF THE EUROPEAN COUNCIL   

After being appointed its first long-term president, Rompuy stated: “2009 is the first year of global governance with the establishment of the G20 in the middle of the financial crisis. The climate conference in Copenhagen is another step towards the global management of our planet.”

On Nov 15, 09, Rompuy, who was formerly the Prime Minister of Belgium, attended a Bilderberg dinner in Brussels, during which he announced a plan to implement EU-wide taxes that will be paid directly to Brussels.

 

   CATHERINE ASHTON

APPOINTED AS FOREIGN AFFAIRS CHIEF 

 

Baronness Ashton, a British politician and Leader of the House of Lords, was now elevated to the office of High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy of the European Union.

The next thing they did was to grant the EU commission ‘embassies’ new powers. The EU converted 54 out of the European Commission’s 136 foreign delegations into embassy-type missions that are authorised to speak for the entire union. – Jan 21/10

EURO COMES UNDER ATTACK 

In spite of the newly enhanced federal status of the EU, in 2010 the EURO currency came under attack, and began to lose its value.  This was symptomatic of the alarming economic conditions throughout the EU.

In May 2010, Greece came to the brink of the abyss – financial collapse.  It was finally bailed out after a bitter debate as the European leaders demanded that Greece employ strong austerity measures. They did and faced a hostile population. But then Portugal, Ireland, Spain and Italy were found to be in similar situations. And next, Britain and France were caught up in the financial meltdown, and their leaders had to take similar tough measures.

And it continues. It is a long way “to get out of the woods.”

The EU, however, will continue to consolidate, and develop economically and militarily, in preparation for its endtime role as the Confederation of the Antichrist.  There will be changes ahead, and possibly upheavals, but eventually ten of the nations will become the solid, powerful core of Antichrist’s kingdom.

“The ten horns you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but who for one hour will receive authority as kings along with the beast (Antichrist). They will have one purpose and will give their power and authority to the beast.” (Revelation 17:12-13)

 

 

 

 

THE EUROPEAN UNION

 

SATANIC AGENDAS AT WORK

 These agendas become exposed as their solutions to the World’s problems are revealed.

The Bible says: “Evil men will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.”  (2 Timothy 3:13)

           

 MAN’S SOLUTIONS TO THE WORLD’S PROBLEMS

include the involvement of …

                     OIL                              THINK-TANKS           MONEY         

                     SUMMITS                  SANCTIONS               GLOBAL TAXATION

                     WEAPONS               CONFLICT                   UNITED NATIONS

                     WARS                        GLOBAL LAW            DEPOPULATION

                     INTERNATIONAL   TREATIES   and         WORLD GOVERNMENT

What is envisaged is the “fundamental transformation” of the United States and every other country in the world. This means a great shift from nationalism to internationalism. It means …

A NEW WORLD ORDER  

The New World Order will require three pillars to succeed …

      1.      a global government.

      2.      a global currency within a global economy.

      3.      a global religion for peace.

 

    ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT 

This is the first pillar, and it will require a one world leader, a world army, and an international police force to enforce global laws and taxation.

      KISSINGER      Former US Secretary of State, Henry Kissinger has long been a CFR member, a TRILATERALIST, and a ONE WORLD advocate. Dr Kissinger wrote a very revealing article in the International Herald Tribune, Jan. 12, 2009.

“I believe it (the financial crisis) was meant as a signal – marching orders, if you will, for a disparate band of elitists determined to bring about a new form of GLOBAL RULE that will supersede our notions of national sovereignty, limited government, and personal freedom.”     - World Net Daily -  March 9/09

The attempt to build a global rule and a new world order is not new. Down the centuries, from the Tower of Babel to the Third Reich of Hitler, there have been attempts to rule the whole world.

1776  -  THE ILLUMINATI

ADAM WEISHAUPT, who was considered to be the most    profound conspirator  who  ever  lived,  founded  the Illuminati – a NWO organisation whose agenda included:

INTERNATIONAL BANKING

FINANCE  -

THE TOOL OF MANIPULATORS 

 

        MAYER AMSCHEL ROTHSCHILD is regarded as the father of International Banking. He was a Jewish banker based in Frankfurt, Germany. He sent out his five sons to neighbouring countries to establish international branch banking.

Rothschild then began to link up with other big banks, including those established by the Warburgs, Kuhn-Loebs, Morgans and Rockefellers.

As well as supporting Illuminati globalist goals, these men worked to establish Central Banks in leading nations, including the Federal Reserve in the US which is controlled by the international bankers. In due time, they created the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, and the Bank for International Settlements.

Many organisations, both nationally and internationally, have been formed to bring about the New World Order.

Some of the most well-known and powerful are the …

IIA - Institute of International Affairs, and similar groups in various countries.

RIIA - Royal Institute of International Affairs (UK)

CFR - Council on Foreign Relations (US)

The Bilderberg Conference, & the Trilateral Commission.

 

 

 

THE PASSION FOR WORLD GOVERNMENT

              OBAMA’S GLOBAL VISION 

In April, speaking in Prague,  Barack Obama took the New World Order rhetoric to soaring new heights, when speaking in Prague. He said:  “All nations must come together to build a stronger, global regime.”

DAVID ROCKEFELLER is now aged, but has been a very   influential member of the Globalist agenda. He was the Chairman of Chase Manhattan Bank; Founder and Honorary Chairman of the Council of the Americas; Chairman of the Council on Foreign Relations; and the Founder and Honorary Chairman of the Trilateral Commission.

David Rockefeller made this forthright statement a few years ago:

“We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the nation will accept the New World Order.” 

Rockefeller also said:

“Some even believe we (Rockefeller family) are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure – one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.”

THE WORLD’S GROWING POPULATION

The World’s population now is almost seven billion.  The rapid increase of mankind means an ever-growing demand for more food, more water, energy, space, goods, homes, schools, hospital, jobs, and so on.

The solution according to the powers-that-be within the framework of the United Nations is ...

“SUSTAINABLE POPULATION”     

Statements that are coming from various international forums indicate that globalist plans are focused on bringing the population of the world back to a “manageable level.” This goal can be partly achieved by reducing the birth rate through “family planning” and legalised abortions.

 OBAMA SIGNS LAW ALLOWING ABORTIONS UP TO FULL TERM

One of the first bills Barack Obama signed after taking office as President in January 2009, was a law to allow abortion of babies up to full term. If the baby is slain outside the womb it is murder. If the baby is slain inside the womb it is legal.

Since abortion in America became legal in 1973 by a Roe versus Wade Supreme Court case, some 50 million babies have been terminated – around 3,700 every day, and 1.35 million every year.

FUNDING  ABORTIONS WORLDWIDE

Jan 26/09. President Obama signed an executive order ending the ban on federal funds for international groups that perform abortions or provide information on the option. Obama reportedly signed it quietly, without coverage by the media, late on Friday afternoon, January 23. 

EUTHANASIA

At the other end of the scale, there are the calls for voluntary euthanasia - the painless killing of people suffering from incurable diseases. Like abortion which at first was available for mothers whose lives were at risk, but now is being made available for any reason, euthanasia has begun for people with unbearable suffering.

The expectation is that it will ultimately be available to anyone who wants to suicide. And with ageing and crippled populations becoming such a financial burden on communities, the elimination of “lives not worth living” will be decided by medics or relatives.

The ultimate means of eliminating excessive population, no doubt, will be through nuclear destruction. That may well be one of the objectives in the coming world war.

“SUSTAINABLE  DEVELOPMENT”

A specific plan that has been outlined by the United Nations for “Sustainable Development” is entitled, Agenda 21. It presents appealing goals, but the methods employed to fulfil those goals mean the loss of individual freedoms. It is all about governing the world.

CLIMATE CHANGE  &

THE COPENHAGEN CONFERENCE - DEC 2009

The UN organisers of the climate change conference were hoping to create some form of world governance to supervise carbon reduction and climate goals. It planned also for a redistribution of the world’s wealth.

The conference failed in its main objective as countries like China and India were not willing to sign up to the crippling reduction goals. And even President Obama was not able to get his congress to sign up to an environmental “cap and trade” proposal. Nevertheless, the UN chief, Ban Ki-moon told journalists: “Finally, we sealed the deal. It may not be everything we hoped for, but this decision of the Conference of Parties is an essential beginning.”

But, he added: “We must transform this into a legally binding treaty next year. The importance will only be recognized when it’s codified into international law.”

2009-10 has witnessed a great deal of scepticism regarding so-called “climate warming” – or “climate change” which is the new term; and there has been a significant step back from the demand for austere climate measures. 

The next “Copenhagen” is being planned, and will be held in …

RIO DE JANEIRO -  Brazil, in  2012.

Many observers believe that the real goal is not actually concerning climate; it’s all about global governance and socialism - the redistribution of wealth, and control.

CO2 REDUCTIONS SLIP DOWN EU PRIORITY LIST

Sept 15/10. EU climate action commissioner Connie Hedegaard has said that achieving an agreement on reduced CO2 emissions at a United Nations’ conference later this year is no longer a top EU priority.

Ms Hedegaard said: “I believe that targets will not be the main issue at [the UN meeting in] Cancun because the US failed to pass their environment legislation,” the Danish commissioner told her audience.  - EUobserver / Brussels

A ONE WORLD MONETARY SYSTEM       

With the Global Financial Crisis affecting the world, over the past two years, there have been calls from many areas, not only for a deep overhaul of the monetary systems of the nations, but for a new global governing system to control the economic woes. 

This is the second pillar for the new world order.

 ‘DON’T ALLOW A CRISIS GO TO WASTE’

Shrewd world leaders often use crises as opportunities to expand their own power. That is what Adolph Hitler did in Germany; he did not waste the economic crisis before World War 2.  It was the economic problems that paved the way and set up the platform for him to come to power.

Rahm Emanuel, President Obama’s former Chief of Staff, once said, “You never want to allow a good crisis to go to waste.”  And there is good reason to believe his boss is taking advantage of the crises confronting him.

The current financial crisis is undoubtedly being used to manipulate the nations to accede to a new world economic order and currency.

   Mr ALAN GREENSPAN, former chairman of the US Federal Reserve, warned last year:   

“Another financial crisis will happen.”  - Sept 10/09

                                                                                                     

GLOBAL GOVERNANCE “NECESSARY” 

The President of the European Central Bank, Jean-Claude Trichet, told Forbes that global governance is extremely necessary if we want to prevent another financial crisis.

            UN CALLS FOR WORLD CURRENCY   

After strong criticism of the US dollar from world leaders, the UN added another scathing report calling for a new international reserve currency issued by the International Monetary Fund.

U.N. REPORT CALLS FOR CREATION OF GLOBAL RESERVE BANK

Sept 10/09. The UN called for the replacement of the US dollar and the creation of a Global Reserve Bank and a new currency, to protect emerging markets from the “confidence game” of financial speculation. 

THE G20 MOVES THE WORLD A STEP

CLOSER TO A GLOBAL CURRENCY

“A single clause in Point 19 of the communiquè issued by the G20 leaders amounts to revolution in the global financial order ... In effect, the G20 leaders have activated the IMF’s power to create money and begin global ‘quantitative easing.’  In doing so, they are putting a de facto world currency into play. It is outside the control of any sovereign body.”  (Telegraph.co.uk, April 7, 2009)

BRITAIN URGES GLOBAL DEAL ON ‘BANK TAX’

Britain stepped up its push for a global tax on financial transactions as part of broad plans to reform the banking sector following the financial crisis, amid concerns that the US may act alone.

PM Gordon Brown insisted that his proposal for an international levy on financial transactions was “gathering support around the world.”   - breitbart.com / Jan 2010

EU LEADERS TO PRESS FOR GLOBAL BANKING TAX

Sept 15/10.  EU leaders meeting in Brussels have agreed to press for a tax on global financial transactions at the G20 - the summit of the world’s 20 leading economies, in Toronto in late Sept.

EU Council President Herman Van Rompuy said after the talks that EU states were keen to make banks pay them back for the massive cash injection they were given during the 2008-2009 financial crisis.   - www.dw-world.de 

                                                                                                     

THE ONE WORLD RELIGION

 MYSTERY BABYLON

 

The third pillar for the new world order is a confederate, synthesized world religion. Already there have been many attempts to reach a religion consensus, through a number of organisations including the

WCC   -  WORLD COUNCIL OF CHURCHES

This was established in 1948 with a view of bringing “Christian” churches together. Its headquarters is at the Ecumenical Centre in Geneva, Switzerland. Described as a “fellowship” of about 340 churches (denominations), of which 157 are members. Collectively, the WCC represents about 550 million Christians in more than 120 countries.

The Roman Catholic Church is not a member of the WCC, but it has worked closely with the Council for more than three decades and sends observers to all major WCC conferences as well as to its Central Committee meetings and the Assemblies’ Joint Working Groups.

The RC Church is also a member of some other ecumenical bodies at regional and national levels; for example, the National Council of Churches in Australia, and the National Council of Christian Churches in Brazil.

  WPR  - WORLD PARLIAMENT OF RELIGIONS

The first “Parliament” creating a global dialogue for faiths was held in 1893 in Chicago. It was addressed by Swami Vivekananda. 

The second “Parliament” was held 100 years later, in 1993, also in Chicago. 

Since then the organisation was been more visible, holding parliament sessions in 1999, 2004, and then in Melbourne, Australia, in 2009.

At the 1993 parliament, the WPR proposed to establish a One World Religion by the year 2,000. That, of course, did not happen. One main reason for the failure, is that millions of evangelical (Bible-adhering) Christians are opposed to the spirit of compromise that underlines the ecumenical (unity) movement. And secondly, Yahweh the Almighty is at present, restraining the mystery of iniquity.

A true Bible believer will not accept Jesus as ONE of the gods, or as one of the gurus (teachers) that have arisen down through the centuries. The Bible believer adheres to the words of Jesus Himself, when He said:

“I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life; no-one comes to the Father, except through Me.”  (John 14:6)

And as the apostle Peter declared very emphatically:

There is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men, by which we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12)

 

 

 URI  - THE UNITED RELIGIONS INITIATIVE

The URI is an international, grassroots, interfaith bridge-building organization modeled after the United Nations. It aims to create social change by promoting “enduring, daily interfaith cooperation,” ending “religiously motivated violence”, and promoting “cultures of peace, justice, and healing for the Earth and all living beings.”

Guided by the vision of founder, Rt. Rev. William E. Swing, the URI Charter was developed through a series of international conferences.  It has a million+ members in 72 countries.

Former UN Asst. Secretary-General Robert Muller said:  “Peace will be impossible without the taming of fundamentalism through a United Religions that professes faithfulness only to the global spirituality and to the health of the planet.” 

TONY BLAIR FAITH FOUNDATION

In May 2008, former British PM, Tony Blair, established The Tony Blair Faith Foundation. One of its goals is to “counter extremism in all six leading religions.”

The Foundation has an International Religious Advisory Council made up of members of the major religions – Christian, Jewish, Hindu, Sikh, Muslim and Buddhist. The Advisory Council’s role is to advise Tony Blair on the work of the Foundation. Included in the Advisory Council is Rick Warren, the well known American “super-pastor,” who is also the Founder of the P.E.A.C.E Coalition.

SAUDI INTERFAITH INITIATIVE

In July 2008, King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia initiated an historic Interfaith Dialogue to help solve world problems through concord and not conflict. The first conference was hosted by King Juan Carlos of Spain in Madrid, and was attended by religious leaders of different faiths including Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism, and Taoism.

These ecumenical movements are some of the new world “spiritual” advocates and  initiatives.  But there are hundreds of other expressions or gatherings, and groups, working towards a One World Religion. 

Another very widespread phenomenon is known as the …

NAM   

THE NEW AGE MOVEMENT and the “AQUARIAN CONSPIRACY”

The NAM is the embodiment of Eastern mysticism and has its origin in the ancient mystery religions of the Orient.  New Age thinking has seemingly permeated every area of society.

New Age groups vary a lot, but most believe in “the inter-connectedness of all things,” - that all is one, and God is all. Therefore God is in us all. Man’s great need is to discover “the deity within” through positive thinking, meditation, visualization, or drugs.

Most believe also in a one world government, a New Age Christ who is coming to lead them, and in the guidance of Lucifer (Satan) who they call “God” or “The Christ.”

The apostle John foretold of this phenomenon.  He wrote:

“It is the last hour; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many Antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour. Who is the liar but the one who denies that Y’shua is the Messiah? - that Jesus is the Christ? This is the Antichrist, the one who denies the Father and the Son.” (1 John 2:18, 22)

The apostle John recorded the visions and prophetic information given to him by the Messiah, in the Book of Revelation.  In chapter 17, he describes the vision he received of Mystery Babylon, a drunken woman, which represents an evil, blood-thirsty, apostate worldwide religious system that persecutes and kills the faithful followers of the true Christ – Y’shua the Messiah.

“Then he carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness. There I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was full of blasphemous names and had seven heads and ten horns.

“And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and glittered with gold, precious stones and pearls; and in her hand she had a golden cup full of abominable, repulsive things and the filth of her immorality; and on her forehead there was inscribed a name with a mysterious meaning, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

“I saw that the woman was drunk with the blood of the saints (set-apart) people of God, and with the blood of the witnesses of Y’shua - those who had died as martyrs because of their testimony to Y’shua. And when I saw her, I was utterly astounded and wondered deeply.” (Revelation 17:3-6)

 

 

This is MYSTERY BABYLON IN THE SADDLE – the world composite religion that rides in power with “the Beast” – the Antichrist kingdom in the endtimes.

ALL THESE THINGS ARE TO BE EXPECTED!

They have been prophesied; these things are all endtime conditions. It’s as the apostle Paul foretold:

“But realize this, that in the last days perilous times will come ... men will be  lovers of sensual pleasures rather than lovers of God; holding to a form of godliness (spiritual life), although they have denied its power... And evil men and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.” (2 Timothy 3:1, 4, 5, 13)

Nothing that is happening is unknown to the Almighty – the Ruler of Eternity. And nothing takes Him by surprise.

YAHWEH THE ALMIGHTY GOD OBSERVES ALL THE EVILS THAT MEN PROMOTE, AND HE WILL BRING REBELLIOUS MANKIND TO THE END OF ITSELF.

“The eyes of YHWH are in every place,

keeping watch on the evil and the good.”

(Proverbs 15:3)

 

THE DIVINE PROGRAM

Yahweh the Almighty has a very different program to men and Satan.  God will execute righteousness on earth through His Anointed One, the Messiah. And His eternal purposes will be fulfilled at the appointed time.

THE CLIMAX OF THE AGE

Following is a short prophetic outline of the main events that are scheduled for the very near future.

1. THE RAPTURE WILL SHOCK THE WORLD

The alarming events we are witnessing around the world today are not the climax - they are simply a prologue, an overture; they are signs of the approaching climax.

The Rapture is the great event that will indicate the seven year climax has begun. The Rapture is the “catching up” of the Master’s born again people; it is the supernatural removal of the corporate Body - the Bride of Christ - from this world.  Millions will disappear from the world.

The Lord Jesus said: “Let not your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s House are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you, for I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, so that you also may be where I am.” (John 14:1-3)

The apostle Paul explains how this “receiving” will take place.

“For the Master Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet call of God. Then the dead in Christ shall rise first. Then we, the living believers who remain, will simultaneously be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Master in the air. And so we will be with the Master for ever.”   (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18)

This is very good news for all who are “in Christ.”

“For God has not destined us to suffer His wrath, but to receive salvation through our Master, Y’shua the Messiah, who died for us, so that whether we are awake or asleep, we will live together with Him.” (1 Thessalonians 5:9-10)

The Messiah promises to keep His people from the 7-year Hour of Trial.

The Saviour says:

“Because you have kept the word of My endurance, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which is about to come upon the whole world, to try those who live on the earth. I am coming quickly - soon!” (Revelation 3:10-11)

Please remember, it is not our endurance, but His endurance!  Y’shua went all the way to Calvary, and paid the penalty of the sins of the world. He never gave up along the  way,  or  at  the  last  moment.  He  paid  our  penalty, shattered Satan’s claims on us sinners, and provided the pardon, the redemption, for all who believe and trust in His sacrifice for us on the cross.

All who are “in Christ” will be included in the glorious Rapture, and be kept from the hour of trial.

2. THE MAN OF SIN WILL BE REVEALED        

After the Rapture, the Antichrist will come to the front. No doubt, he is working at this present time, preparing for his global reign; but he is being restrained. And the globalists’ plans for the New World Order are also being restrained. They are making progress but they cannot truly succeed until the Restrainer (the Holy Spirit) is temporarily “taken out of the way.”  The apostle Paul explains it like this, according to the revelation given to him:

“Let no one deceive you in any way, for that Day will not come unless the apostasy, (the predicted falling away from the faith), comes first, and the Man of Lawlessness (that is, the Man of Sin) is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself above everything that is called God or that is worshipped, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, proclaiming that he himself is God.

“Do you not remember that while I was still with you, I was telling you these things? And you know what is restraining him now, so that he may be revealed at the proper time. For the mystery of iniquity and lawlessness is already at work; but He (the Holy Spirit) who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way.

“And then the lawless one will be revealed whom the Lord will slay with the breath of His mouth and bring to an end by the glory of His coming; that is, the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with great power and with all kinds of signs and counterfeit miracles, and with all the deception of wickedness among those who are perishing, because they would not receive the love of the truth which could have saved them.”  (2 Thessalonians 2:3-8)

3. THE TRIBULATION BEGINS

After the Antichrist is revealed, he will be acclaimed by the world for he will succeed in bringing about a peace treaty involving Israel and a number of nations. He will succeed where Clinton, Bush and Obama have all failed.

“And he (the endtime Roman Antichrist) will confirm a covenant - a treaty - with the many for one week (lit. ‘seven’ – a week of seven years).”  (Daniel 9:27)

This treaty brings in the last seven years of the time allotted to Israel, which is called “the time of Jacob’s Trouble) (Jeremiah 30:7), and is also called, “the Day of the LORD,” in 1 Thessalonians 5:2,  & 2 Thessalonians 2:2.

“God has fixed a day in which He will judge the world in righteousness through a Man whom He has appointed, having furnished proof to all by raising Him from the dead.” (Acts 17:31)

Y’shua Himself warned: “For then there will be great tribulation, such as has never occurred since the beginning of the world until now; and there will be nothing like it again.”  (Matthew 24:21)

           4.  WORLD WAR

Several months after signing the “peace treaty,” war will break out in the Middle East, which will expand and end up in the dreaded nuclear world war. 

“Its rider was given power to take peace from the earth.” (Revelation 6:4)

 

 

JERUSALEM BESIEGED & PLUNDERED

“I will make Jerusalem a very heavy rock for all the nations. All who try to move it will be severely injured.” … “For I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem to fight against it, and the city will be captured, the houses plundered, and the women raped. Half of the city will go into captivity, but the rest of the people will not be exiled from the city.”  (Zechariah 12:2-3; 14:2)

Details of the war are given in Daniel 11:40-45; Ezekiel 29: 9-12 & chapters 38 & 39; Joel 3:9-16; Zechariah 12:2-9; & Revelation 6:4-8.

The world war and its results - the destruction, famine and disease - will wipe out 25% of the world’s population.

“And authority was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, with famine, with plague and pestilence, and by the wild beasts of the earth.” (Revelation 6:8)

5.  JERUSALEM OCCUPIED BY THE ANTICHRIST

The Beast – the Roman Antichrist – will be the powerful victor in the world war, for as Daniel said: 

“He will become very strong, but not by his own power. He will destroy to an extraordinary degree and prosper and perform his will. He will destroy mighty men, and also the holy people.” (Daniel 8:24)

He then moves in and takes control over Jerusalem.

“Then he will pitch the tents of his palace between the seas and the beautiful Holy Mountain (Mt Zion - Jerusalem).  Yet he will come to his end (at the end of the seven years), and no-one will help him.”  (Daniel 11:45)

6.  A TEMPLE WILL BE BUILT IN JERUSALEM

We can expect the Antichrist to build a multi-cultural temple/complex on the Temple Mount – where he will be crowned god of the entire world.  A reference to the temple is in Revelation.

“And a reed like a measuring rod was given to me; and the messenger stood, saying, ‘Rise and measure the sanctuary of God, and the altar, and those worshipping in it. Leave out the court which is outside the temple and do not measure it, for it has been given to the gentile nations; and they will trample the holy city under foot for forty-two months.”        (Revelation 11:1-2)

“… the Man of Lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself above everything that is called God or that is worshipped, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, proclaiming that he himself is God.”                                                                                                                 (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4)

7.  THE NEW WORLD ORDER

     & THE REIGN OF THE BEAST FOR 31/2 YEARS

At the middle of the 7-year period, the Antichrist begins his worldwide rule as the “World President,” the head of the new global regime.  His equally-powerful accomplice in his satanic rule is called the False Prophet.

The False Prophet sets up the Image of the Beast (Antichrist) which will be worshiped as well as the Beast himself.

“Because of the signs he was given power to do on behalf of the beast, he deceived the inhabitants of the earth. He ordered them to set up an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and yet lived. He (the False Prophet) was given power to give breath to the image of the Beast, so that it could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image of the Beast to be killed.”  (Revelation 13:14-15)

                     8.  THE MARK OF THE BEAST     

The “mark of the beast” is introduced very early in the NWO. Quite likely the mark will be a RFID (Radio frequency Identity implant). By this technology, the Beast system would be able to fully control the people and their movements.

“He compels all, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands, or on their foreheads, so that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name. Here is wisdom; let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for the number is that of a man; and his number is 666.” (Revelation 13:16-18)

Our rapidly developing modern electronic and radio frequency technology will provide the Antichrist with seemingly omnipotent power, and the means of enforcing the worship of Satan.  That’s what it is all about.  It is Satan’s conspiracy to receive worship, and to destroy a person’s power to choose to worship any other.

9.  JUDGMENTS FALL ON THE BEAST KINGDOM

During the reign of this evil trinity – Satan, The Beast, and the False Prophet - great judgments from the Almighty will fall on their kingdom.

“Then I heard a loud voice from the temple saying to the seven angels, ‘Go, pour out the seven bowls of the wrath of God upon the earth.’ The first angel went and poured out his bowl upon the earth, and loathsome and malignant sores broke out on the people who had the mark of the beast and who worshipped his image.” (Revelation 16:1-2)

“The fifth angel poured out his bowl upon the throne of the beast; and his kingdom was plunged into darkness. Men gnawed their tongues in agony. And they cursed and blasphemed the God of heaven because of their anguish and their sores; and they refused to repent of their wicked deeds.” (Revelation 16:10-11)

10.  THE BATTLE OF ARMAGEDDON 

This is the final war of the Tribulation.

“The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up to prepare the way for the kings from the rising of the sun - the East. And I saw coming out of the mouth of the dragon and out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet, three unclean spirits like frogs; for they are spirits of demons, performing miraculous signs, and they go out to the kings of the whole world, to gather them together for the battle of the Great Day of YHWH EL SHADDAI - God Almighty  ... they gathered the kings together to the place called in Hebrew, Har-Megiddo (Armageddon).” (Revelation 16:12-16)

 

11.  THE KING OF KINGS DESCENDS FROM HEAVEN

       AND DESTROYS THE BEAST AND HIS REGIME

The Messiah, who is called The Word of God, descends from heaven to strike the nations that have gathered for the Armageddon battle.

“Then a white horse appeared, and He who sat upon it was called  Faithful and True; and in righteousness He judges and wages war … and the name by which He was called, was ‘The Word of God.’ The armies of heaven were following Him, riding on white horses  …  Now from His mouth comes a sharp two-edged sword with which to strike the nations.”  (Revelation 19:11-16)

“Then I saw the beast and the kings of the earth and their armies, assembled to make war against the Rider on the horse, and against His army. But the beast was seized, and with him the false prophet who had performed the signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshipped his image.

“These two were thrown alive into the fiery lake of burning sulphur. The rest were killed with the sword that came out of the mouth of the Rider on the horse, and all the birds were filled with their flesh.” (Revelation 19:19-21)

12.  THE KINGDOM OF GOD ESTABLISHED

After destroying the regime of the Beast, the Messiah will establish truth, righteousness, justice and peace on earth - the glorious worldwide kingdom of God.

“Now the salvation, and the power, and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren (Satan)  has been thrown down – the one who has been accusing them before our God day and night.”  (Revelation 12:10)

“And the seventh angel sounded his trumpet; and there arose loud voices in heaven, crying, ‘The kingdoms of the world have become the kingdom of YHWH our LORD and of His Anointed – the Messiah; and He will reign for ever and ever.” (Revelation 11:15)   Amen!!

 

A FINAL WORD …

The important question for each one of us now, is, “Am I saved? Will I be caught up at the Rapture and delivered from this doomed world. Or will I be left behind to perish during those horrors of seven years of hell upon earth?”

WHAT MUST WE DO TO BE SAVED?

My reader, forget about what work you must do to be saved!  The Saviour, Y’shua, Jesus the Messiah, has already completed the work that was necessary to provide you with His free gift of salvation. He has already paid the penalty of your sin. He now offers you pardon, forgiveness and eternal life. All you have to “do” is to BELIEVE in the One who can save you.

First, believe the message that God has given to us. As the apostle Paul said:

“For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance, that the Messiah died for our sins, according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures.”  (1 Corinthians 15:3-4)

Second, believe in the Saviour. This is the apostle Paul’s answer to the question … “What must I do to be saved?”

Believe in the Master, Y’shua the Messiah (put your trust, your faith in Him), and you will be saved; (and this applies to) you and your household as well.”  (Acts  16:30-31)

“If you confess with your mouth Y’shua as LORD and believe in your heart that  God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; for with the heart man believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses,  resulting in salvation.”  (Romans 10:9-10)

“WHOEVER WILL CALL UPON THE NAME OF Y’SHUA the LORD WILL BE SAVED.”   (Romans 10:13)

This may seemtoo easy.” Most people think they have to pay their own way.  But remember, to save you, Jesus paid your penalty on that cruel Roman cross.  That was not “too easy.” It was Heaven’s great sacrifice for you, and me, and for all who will trust in Him.

But sadly, for many people, to simply believe, to call on the Saviour, is “too difficult.” And they lose their souls.

My dear reader, if you have not yet settled this vital issue; if you have not yet received Y’shua, Jesus, as your personal Saviour, the prayer on the next page will help you to express your faith in Him and to receive His salvation for now and eternity.

DECISION PRAYER     

Heavenly Father,

I come to You just as I am, a sinner needing Your forgiveness, and salvation.

I come in the Name of Your Son, Y’shua, Jesus Christ, believing that He paid the penalty for all my sins when He died as my substitute on the cross.  I believe that He rose from the dead as Your Word says, and that He is the living Saviour of all who call on His Name.  And Father, I call on His Name right now, and ask You to forgive my sin, to save me, to make me a new person, and to make me Your child.

Lord Jesus I put my trust in You, and give my life to You. By Your enabling power I will follow You, and own You as my Saviour and Master from this day on. Master, make me Your faithful witness.

Thank You Father, for hearing my prayer. Thank You for Your forgiveness and salvation.  Thank You, Y’shua, for dying for me, and for paying my penalty, and thank You for Your gift of eternal life.

Thank You Father.  I pray in Jesus’ Name.  Amen
