BIBLE PROPHECY BEING FULFILLED IN OUR TIME

Bible prophecy is being fulfilled in our time. The ram of Daniel 8 is Iran “I saw the ram charging westward and northward and southward.” Since its inception in 1979, the Islamic Republic of Iran has aggressively sought to “export” its Islamic Revolution and remake the Middle East under its dominion. Iran’s primary method to empower itself has been to anchor loyal proxies in the region, which it has done most successfully with Hezbollah in Lebanon, and more recently in Iraq, Syria, Yemen, and Gaza.

IRAN HISTORICAL MAPS

Where its proxies have not been able to take root, Iran has engaged in subversive activities to undermine its rivals and enhance its influence, as it has done in Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Kuwait, and Afghanistan.

I was in Susa the citadel, which is in the province of Elam. And I saw in the vision, and I was at the Ulai canal. I (Daniel) raised my eyes and saw, and behold, a ram standing on the bank of the canal. It had two horns, and both horns were high, but one was higher than the other, and the higher one came up last. I saw the ram charging westward and northward and southward. No beast could stand before him, and there was no one who could rescue him from his power. He did as he pleased and became great.Daniel 8:2-4

According to Dr. Shimon Shapira, a senior researcher at the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs (JCPA), Iran has long sought to establish an Islamic empire among the Shi’ite populations in the Middle East region and encourages them to “challenge the nation-states in which they operate and to shape them by building a fighting Islamic society with military capabilities that is exclusively loyal to the leader of Iran, and that affords Iran active involvement in the jihad against Israel.”

“Lebanon was the Islamic empire’s first target,” he said. “Over the past decade, it has fallen like a ripe fruit into Iran’s hands. Through Hezbollah, Iran has taken control of the institutions of the Lebanese state and turned it into a failed state whose stability has collapsed amid severe economic and political corruption that threatens its demise.”

“Meanwhile,” Shapira added, “Iraq and Syria have fallen, and Iran is using Yemen’s territory to wage the struggle against Saudi Arabia, whose legitimate control of the Islamic holy places Iran has put in question.”

Hezbollah works day and night to improve its military capabilities in the likely and inevitable event it goes to war with Israel.

Shapira noted that Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah recently announced that the terror organization “had managed to convert thousands of missiles in its possession into precision-guided missiles, despite Israel’s attempts to thwart the process during its ‘campaign between the wars.’ ”

At the moment, according to Shapira, “Hezbollah is believed to have 130,000 missiles and rockets with ranges of 10 to 500 kilometers dispersed in Southern Lebanon and the Bekaa Valley in bunkers next to schools, clinics, hospitals, soccer fields, as well as the Iranian embassy in Beirut and the Lebanese Defense Ministry.”

According to Shapira, Iran’s strategy in Lebanon is based on three main factors:

One, turning Lebanon into an Iranian forward position against Israel, including an array of short- and long-range missiles intended to deter Israel from attacking the Iranian nuclear program.

Two, building an Islamic society in Lebanon in the image of Iran whose fealty is to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

However, we know from Biblical prophecy that Iran will not achieve its goal of establishing a Shia Islamic Empire because the Goat of Daniel 8, Sunni Turkey will crush and subdue it. However, the revived Ottoman Empire will not exist for long as the following Scriptures reveal. It will be broken up into four nations and out of one of these four, the Antichrist will arise.

As I (Daniel) was considering, behold, a male goat came from the west across the face of the whole earth, without touching the ground. And the goat had a conspicuous horn between his eyes. He came to the ram with the two horns, which I had seen standing on the bank of the canal, and he ran at him in his powerful wrath. I saw him come close to the ram, and he was enraged against him and struck the ram and broke his two horns. And the ram had no power to stand before him, but he cast him down to the ground and trampled on him. And there was no one who could rescue the ram from his power. Then the goat became exceedingly great, but when he was strong, the great horn was broken, and instead of it there came up four conspicuous horns toward the four winds of heaven.Daniel 8:5-8

Out of one of them came a little horn (Antichrist), which grew exceedingly great toward the south, toward the east, and toward the glorious land. It grew great, even to the host of heaven.Daniel 8:9-10

With Scripture, we can watch world events and see Biblical prophecy unfolding exactly as prophesied by the O.T and N.T writers. How good is our God, He has warned us in advance demonstrating His control over human history.

WARNING ABOUT THE BOOK OF REVELATION

Jesus provides us with an amazing warning about the book of REVELATION.

 I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book, and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book.” Revelation 22:18-19

There is no warning like this concerning any other book in the Bible. This should make us realise how important this book is particularly to those living in the days when the prophesied events in the Book of Revelation are being fulfilled.

1. DECEPTION BY FALSE MESSIAHS.

2. BLOODSHED, WARS & CHAOS.

3. FAMINE AND ECONOMIC COLLAPSE.

4. ABOMINATION AND DEATH

5. MARTYRDOM AND APOSTASY.

6. CELESTIAL SIGNS

7. RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH

Bible commentators have long recognised the amazing parallel between these six signs given in Matthew, Mark, and Luke and the Six Seals of Revelation 6. If the first six signs are the same then it can be assumed the seventh His return is as well. Four books of the Bible give these six signs.

The FOUR HORSEMEN OF THE APOCALYPSE

Each of the four horsemen lines up with the first four seals of Revelation 6. The key to understanding: Satan is the one sending them out to get the world to worship the Antichrist. God grants him authority for a specified time.

Rider of the white horse posing as Jesus, even with a crown – Jesus first warning is of false Christs and false prophets. Revelation 6:1-2

Rider of the red horse with sword. It says this rider takes peace from the earth – bloodshed, wars and chaos. Revelation 6:3-4

Rider of the black horse with a pair of scales. He states the cost of wheat and barley as exorbitant – famine and pestilence. Revelation 6:5-6

Rider of the sickly green horse is named death and hades and he was given power to kill a fourth of the earth including animals with sword, famine, and plague –  abomination and death. Revelation 6:7-8

Bookended with the same phrases  (things you have seen take place, things about to take place & things that must take place after this), could these letters to the churches explain the 70th week of Daniel and the pattern of seven events? (how Jesus would deliver His people)
Jezebel is going to seduce believers to eat food sacrificed to idols by taking the Mark of the Beast. The Islamic system of Hallal, slaughtering and preparing meat for food, is all a sacrifice to Allah. Jezebel seduces believers to commit adultery by embracing Islam. Jezebel instituted the worship of Baal and Asherah on a national scale. In addition, she violently purged the prophets of Yaweh from Israel.
Church at Philadelphia is the church that will be raptured at the 6th Seal “I will keep you from the hour of trial”
The church at Laodicea will face the Wrath of God but still have a chance to repent as they have not taken the mark of the Beast.

DISNEY STAR SPEAKS THE TRUTH

“When ‘your truth’ trumps ‘the truth’ and forces me to pretend that it’s not a lie, we have a very real problem.”

Those are the words of Natasha Ward, an actor on the Disney-owned ABC series “Station 19.” She shared the comment on a story posted to her Instagram account, defending biological women amid the debate over the transgender movement. As a result, she came under intense attack from her co-stars.

“Supporting trans freedom,” she wrote, “does not mean it’s OK to violate the rights of biological women.”

“Pretending that trans women are not men who have a biological advantage, and therefore place an undue burden on biological women, is make-believe and it is not science nor fact,” Ward continued, later adding, “In the long run, women will have to take illegal substances in order to beat men ‘identifying’ as women in women’s sports.”

Ward asserted the push to embrace biological men who identify as women as true women will result in “pushing women out of the upper echelons of elite sports entirely as we biologically cannot compete apart from enhanced substances, forcing women to endanger their health.”

“That is science,” she wrote on her Instagram account, which she has since made private. “That is a fact. Your truth is not the truth and, when it infringes upon fact and places an undue burden, which displaces my rights, we have gone too far.”

Ward, it should be noted, is taking a similar position to that voiced by “Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling, who sparked a firestorm in the summer of 2020, when she tweeted, “If sex isn’t real, the lived reality of women globally is erased.”

PROOF WE ARE LIVING IN THE LAST DAYS

Listen to Stephen Briggs of Hatikvah Films explain how Scripture provides us evidence that we are living in the day, the disciples wanted to live in when they asked Jesus about the restoration of Israel. “So when they had come together, they asked him, “Lord, will you at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?Acts 1:6

The Bible tells us where are we in history so it is imperative we know what God is calling us to do at this amazing time – the time before Jesus’ Second Coming when He restores the Kingdom to Israel.

Now the Scripture saw in advance that God would justify the Gentiles by faith and told the good news ahead of time to Abraham, saying, All the nations will be blessed through you. So those who have faith are blessed with Abraham, who had faith.Galatians 3:8

WHEN JESUS COMES TO FETCH HIS BRIDE WILL YOU BE STANDING IN LINE?

Adonai by LIz Hadassah Wiid. Album: Born for Such a Time
Lyrics: Can you hear He’s crying out, for His children to prepare themselves?
But everybody love their lives, so much that they’re afraid to die.
Can you see the time is near, but no one really seems to care.
Don’t you realize when you die to self, you will gain life in the end?
Oh Adonai, our Adonai, Will we hear the trumpet sound? Will we hear You call our name?
Oh Adonai, our Adonai, When You come to fetch Your bride Will we be standing in the line?

Do you understand our time as the beginning of the end?

“… the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?”

And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.

Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.

But he who endures to the end shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come. Matthew 24:3-14

Jesus prophesied His followers would be divided and He prayed we’d all be made one, so the world would know His Father sent Him and loved them as He loved Jesus. (John 17:21-23)

WEF & U.N. SAY “THOUGHT LEADERS” NEED TO BE CONTROLLING EVENTS

The Bible tells us that big corporations will be controlling things in the last days. What about today, are Bill Gates, Elon Musk, Warren Buffet, Jeff Bezos, Mark Zuckerberg controlling things. These globalists control the World Economic Forum and believe global control is needed to address the big problems facing the world: pestilences such as Covid and climate change. The WEF Great Reset is central to their strategy and Global Health Passports is just one of their agendas

For your merchants were the great ones of the earth, and all nations were deceived by your sorcery.
And in her (Mystery Babylon) was found the blood of prophets and of s
aints, and of all who have been slain on earth.” Revelation 18:23-24

May I suggest you take a look at my previous post? It provides detail on the WEC Great Reset.

THE W.E.C. GREAT RESET-FORERUNNER TO MYSTERY BABYLON AND THE MARK OF THE BEAST

HEADING TOWARDS THE MARK OF THE BEAST

Globalists like the United Nations and the World Economic Forum which is controlled by billionaires like Bill Gates, are now openly proclaiming transhumanism as if it’s a good thing. Saying it will eliminate free will and the concept of human souls. This of course means such a person loses the ability to be saved by Jesus. Watch this episode of Last Days Breaking News with Nelson Walters to see actual video footage of a leading expert and advisor of the World Economic Forum and Klaus Schwab freely describe how AI and brain to computer implants will forever change the world – and how this matches up with Bible Prophecy.

So much of end times, Bible prophecy is lining up in our day whether it be floods, droughts, famine, pestilence, apostasy. wars and rumours of wars. The Apostle, John must have wondered about what the mark of the Beast would be and it is only in our day that the technology is available to make it a reality.

UKRAINE WAR IN BIBLE PROPHECY

The video below from Faithwire is helpful in explaining why Christians need to be looking at the many Biblical prophecies about the end times prior to Jesus’ return first to take out the Saints and then to pour out His wrath upon an unrepentant world.

I would not agree with Jeff Kinley’s comment that Rosh is Russia. Rosh is a common Hebrew word that is used hundreds of times in the Bible and means ‘chief,’ ‘head,’ or ‘beginning.’ For example, Rosh Hashanah marks the beginning of the Jewish New Year. I believe Gog will be a leader of Magog, a confederation of Muslim nations e.g. Turkey, Iran, Iraq, and others. What part Russia plays in the end times scenario I am not sure, but what is playing out now fits with Jesus saying that there will be wars and rumours of wars but this is just the beginning of the “end times” events

And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for this must take place, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are but the beginning of the birth pains.Matthew 24:6-8

Author Jeff Kinley breaks down why so many theologians’ eyes are on Russia. He dives into the Prophet Ezekiel’s writings on Israel, Russia, and other nations — and explains how current events could play into the end times paradigm. With Russia’s invasion of Ukraine upon us, this helpful explainer with the reservation I have given does help put these events in context.

In my opinion, the next major “end times event” in Biblical prophecy is Daniel’s vision of the Ram (Iran) and Goat (Turkey) battle (Daniel 8) which ends with Turkey establishing a revised Ottoman Empire. It is short-lived and is broken up into four nations probably by the United Nations forces. Note: out of one of these comes the Antichrist.

Then the goat (Turkey now Revised Ottoman Empire) became exceedingly great, but when he was strong, the great horn was broken, and instead of it there came up four conspicuous horns toward the four winds of heaven. Out of one of them came a little horn (Antichrist), which grew exceedingly great toward the south, toward the east, and toward the glorious land.Daniel 8:8-9

WARS AND RUMOURS OF WARS

Wars and rumours of wars are just one of the early end times signs that Jesus spoke of when asked by the disciples about His second coming and the end of the world.

Russia has been massing some 100,000 troops plus logistics to support them in what looks like an impending invasion of Ukraine.  In response, President Biden is sending 3,000 American soldiers to Poland and Romania, which border Ukraine.

New satellite images show battle groups and a vehicle park in Yelnya, Russia, on January 19, 2022.

What would be the consequence if those Americans are fired upon?  What if Russia moves on the Baltic Republics (Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania), also the home of a large Russian minority with grievances?  They are members of NATO, in which an attack on one member nation is considered an attack on them all.  If the Russians move on Estonia, all of the European members and the United States would be obliged by treaty to go to war with Russia.  Most of the NATO nations have little military capabilities these days, trusting the United States to bear all of the costs involved.

China and Russia, once rivals have made formal alliances with each other.  Not only that, both countries have made formal alliances with Iran, drawing the explosive Middle East into the global political alignments.  In fact, these three countries are already being called “a new Axis.”  (See, for example, this analysis:  As America Sleeps, a Dangerous Axis Develops.)

China’s threats against Taiwan keep intensifying.  Its much-expanded navy, its cutting-edge military technology, and its saber-rattling incursions of intimidation into the waters of other Asian countries are of concern. The Chinese ambassador has explicitly threatened “military conflict” with the U.S. if they support Taiwan in its continued claims of independence.

President Biden and the Pentagon turned what should have been an orderly withdrawal from Afghanistan into a humiliating rout.  A military that can’t even pull off a successful retreat will seem unlikely to be able to stage a successful attack.  The spectacle of the vaunted American military running away from the barely-equipped Taliban and even leaving behind some of their own people has surely emboldened their adversaries. They even abandoned hundreds of billions of dollars of military equipment and disgracefully turned their backs on their friends and allies. This could be seen in the ridicule that came from Russia and  China, which called the U.S. a “paper tiger.”

As well as wars and rumours of wars, famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in many countries are other end times signs occurring now. Covid is the most notable. Apostate churches, false prophets and teachers, and lawlessness are also significant signs.

And you will hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that you are not alarmed: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. Then they will deliver you up to tribulation, and put you to death: and you will be hated by all nations for my name’s sake. And then many will fall away, and betray one another, and hate one another. And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray. And because lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold. But the one that endures to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.Matthew 24:6:14

Whilst tribulation is ahead, the indwelling Holy Spirit will guide our steps to lead many to Jesus and bring glory to God. Look up your redemption is approaching.

Now when these things begin to take place, straighten up and raise your heads because your redemption is drawing near.Luke 21:28

FIGHT! CONTEND! DO BATTLE! FOR THE FAITH

Virtual replicas now exist. As previously posted, Facebook has changed its name to Meta in recognition that the future is in the virtual universe. In the video below, Nelson reveals that China has already shown they have used a replica newsreader for seven months. Think about that for a moment, they (those in control) can create a replica of you and have you say whatever they want.

It (False Prophet) deceives those who dwell on earth, telling them to make an image for the beast that was wounded by the sword and yet lived. And it was allowed to give breath to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast might even speak and might cause those who would not worship the image of the beast to be slain.”

Could this be what John is referring to when he talks of the False Prophet making an image of the beast, a virtual image that can speak just as the replica newsreader did?

What about the following verse; until the technology of today – smartphones, how could people from all over the earth see the dead bodies of the two witnesses lying in a street in Jerusalem? It must have been a mystery to John. Although his whole Revelation experience must have been mind blowing.

And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.Revelation 11:9

Same with Daniel: the following end times words he was given truly describe the time we are living in now particularly “knowledge shall be increased“.

Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased. Daniel 12:4

End times Biblical prophecy is unfolding in our time like never before. Are you prepared for Jesus return? The second last book of the Bible, Jude, tells us what we need to be doing in the last days before Jesus returns. Check it out.

Fight! Contend! Do battle! When apostasy arises, when false teachers emerge, when the truth of God is attacked it is time to fight for the faith. Only believers who are spiritually “in shape” can answer the summons.
