BIBLE REVEALS ANTICHRIST ORIGIN AND TIMING

Nelson does a great job of unpacking Scripture to reveal what the Bible shows us about end times events and what we are seeing and reading in the media of current events in the Middle East.

I doubt you will hear this message in your local church and the Bible tells us that much of the church will be asleep and even more tragic much of it will fall away and compromise with the world and its values. Hence, God brings on catastrophes to refine/test His church.

“Do not fear any of those things which you are about to suffer. Indeed, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested,” Revelation 2:10 (Church at Smyrna – persecuted church)

‘” I know your works, that you have a name that you are alive, but you are dead. Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die, for I have not found your works perfect before God. Remember therefore how you have received and heard; hold fast and repent. Therefore if you will not watch, I will come upon you as a thief, and you will not know what hour I will come upon you.” Revelation 3:1-3 (Church at Sardis- dead church)

NATIONS RAGE AGAINST GOD AND HIS VALUES

Biblical prophecy is accurate, God has told us how events will unfold prior to His return to rule and reign from Jerusalem.

PSALM 2 gives us an accurate picture of the nations today, the rulers have taken counsel together against God and His people. They have cast away God’s values and commands. We can make up our own rules about sex, marriage and gender.

Look what God says and what He will do. They will face His wrath and Jesus will rule and reign from Zion’s Hill (Jerusalem). Notice what Jesus will do to the nations “break them with a rod of iron and dash them to pieces like a potter’s vessel”.

Fortunately, Christians have been given a detailed picture of the “last days” and know that God is going to first refine His church with tribulation. Sadly, Jesus told us that many church goers will fall away from the true faith and compromise with the world and its values. This is already happening as gay marriage and homosexual pastors are being accepted in some denominational churches.

Why do the nations rage, and the people plot a vain thing?
The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together,
against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying, “Let us break their bonds in pieces and cast away their cords from us.”
He who sits in the heavens shall laugh; the Lord shall hold them in derision.
Then He shall speak to them in His wrath, and distress them in His deep displeasure: “Yet I have set My King on My holy hill of Zion.”
“I will declare the decree: the Lord has said to Me, you are My Son, today I have begotten You. Ask of Me, and I will give You the nations for Your inheritance, and the ends of the earth for Your possession.
You shall break them with a rod of iron; you shall dash them to pieces like a potter’s vessel.’ ” Now therefore, be wise, O kings; be instructed, you judges of the earth. Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling.
Kiss the Son, lest He be angry, and you perish in the way, when His wrath is kindled but a little.
PSALM 2

GOD CONTROLS NATIONS: HISTORY SHOWS IT

Jonathan Cahn does a great job of showing how God has been in control of nations down through history. How each nation deals with God’s nation, Israel, determines its fate – bless Israel and the nation is blessed, curse Israel and the nation is cursed.

The book of Joshua is a brutally stark reminder that God is ultimately judge of all the nations. God leveraged Israelites as His instrument of judgement on the nations of that land for their sins, just as hundreds of years later God would leverage the Babylonians to pass judgement on the nation of Judah for its sins. God is sovereign judge over all the nations.

Read what Job said about God controlling nations:

“He makes nations great, and destroys them; He enlarges nations, and guides them. He takes away the understanding of the chiefs of the people of the earth, and makes them wander in a pathless wilderness. They grope in the dark without light, and He makes them stagger like a drunken man.” Job 14:23-25

In the last days, before Jesus returns to rule and reign on a restored earth, God says He will gather the Jewish people back to their land. He did this in part in 1948 and then gave them back Jerusalem in the Jubilee year 1967. We can be sure all of the rest of the end times biblical prophecies will unfold exactly as given.

Anyone interested in what God is doing and will do in the years ahead need to listen to Jonathan expound the relevant “end times” scriptures.

The only disagreement I have with Jonathan is on the identity of the Antichrist. Jonathan says, he will be a Roman, based on Daniel 9:26-27. I believe he will be from the Middle East, the long awaited Muslim Mahdi. In Daniel 9:26-27, we see that it is the people of the ruler shall destroy Jerusalem. The people groups that made up the four legions that Titus led were the ancient enemies of the Jewish people, from lands that surrounded Judea.

“And the people of the prince (ruler) who is to come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. The end of it shall be with a flood, and till the end of the war, desolations are determined. Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week; but in the middle of the week He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering.
And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate,
Even until the consummation, which is determined, is poured out on the desolate.” Daniel 9:26-27

TURKEY’S ERDOGAN INTENT ON BECOMING GLOBAL CALIPH

There are increasing signs that Turkey’s dictator, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, aims to turn his nation into the dominant component of a new Islamic caliphate, controlling even more territory than the Ottoman Empire.

Islam expert and author, Joel Richardson, wrote shortly after Turkey’s controversial election in which Erdogan was given virtually unrestricted power, that analysts in recent years tried “to shout down warnings that Erdogan has a desire to return to the Ottoman era.” “Today those same critics are taking a fresh look at the man they once made excuses for and even championed,” he wrote.

“Not only did Erdogan specifically avoid visiting the tomb of Ataturk (who turned Turkey into a secular government), but instead, he visited the tomb of Sultan Selim I.” Richardson explained that Selim the Grim ruled the Ottoman Empire from 1512 to 1520 and was most remembered for his expansionist conquest over Egypt, Syria, Iraq and Saudi Arabia.

“Erdogan was sending a very clear message. The era of Ataturk is over. There is a new Sultan Selim the Grim in power,” Richardson wrote.

Richardson, who wrote Islamic Antichrist: “The Shocking Truth about the Real Nature of the Beast”, cites the Old Testament in warning that a “last days invasion of Israel would specifically be led by Turkey. In my book, he states, “I carefully work through Ezekiel’s prophecy to show how the Bible doesn’t point to a last-days Russian-led invasion of Israel, but instead points to an invasion led by Turkey.”

Erdogan’s intentions are becoming clearer. He told an interviewer during a recent trip to Africa, for example, his nation now has 39 embassies on the continent, up from 13. The interview Erdogan granted was with Amadou Mahtar Ba, the co-founder and executive chairman of All Africa Global Media.

He’s also boasted of his one-on-one talks with Pope Francis, French President Emmanuel Macron, Russian President Vladimir Putin, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and other leaders.

“I’ve called his holiness the pope and I’ve shared my thoughts and opinions with him. … And praise Allah, he is thinking alike. I’ve spoken to the German chancellor, and similarly President Macron of France; I’ve talked to him. And I’ve also talked to President Putin of Russia.”

The Turkish leader discussed his recent trip to Sudan, Chad and Tunisia, Muslim-majority nations in Africa. The trip brought to 24 the number of African countries Erdogan has visited, the report said.

“We still hope we can prevail in every country of the African continent through our embassies, and we are going to achieve that because we are very determined, we have many commonalities.” Erdogan said in the interview.

The issue of President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel came up immediately in the questioning, with the interviewer speculating about Erdogan’s response to Africa’s “more than 500 million” Muslims on the issue.

The Turkish leader said he’s discussed the conflict – the Palestinians insist Jerusalem will be the capital of a future Palestinian state – with many Muslims and others.

He cited the recent vote in the U.N. by 128 countries to condemn the U.S. decision recognising Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. He said Trump actually isn’t important to the process. The step to be taken forward after this moment is all about the 128 countries siding with Palestine and all of the countries which had reservations. We should get together and take up an initiative. Palestine should be recognised as an independent and sovereign state by all of these nations that voted in favour this afternoon at the U.N. And after that is accomplished, the U.S., willingly or non-willingly, will have to interpret this situation accurately.”

Richardson pointed out that since Erdogan has assumed complete control of Turkey, there are now more journalists in prison there than any other nation on the earth. The AKP-led government has assumed complete control over virtually every media outlet in the nation. Well over a hundred thousand of its own citizens have either been indefinitely imprisoned or fired from their jobs on suspicion of supporting opposition perspectives. Throughout the nation, men and woman continue to disappear randomly and suddenly, literally snatched off the streets simply for suspicion of holding critical views of the president. The current national roundup of Erdogan’s enemies, or political opponents, is eerily reminiscent of Nazi Germany. Yet this is just the beginning. Clearly, for me, it is just further evidence that Bible “end times” prophecies are playing out exactly as God planned.

DANIEL 8 PROPHESIES IRAN’S INVASION OF MIDDLE EAST

A simple interpretation of Daniel 8 suggests Iran is going to invade most of the Middle East (the vision concerns the time of the end”. Iran’s current presence in Syria, Lebanon (Hezbollah) and Gaza (Hamas) and continued threats to annihilate Israel already give credence to this prophesy. The following article just confirms that this event is an important one in end times Biblical prophecy.

Former Intelligence Chief: Gravest Threat Facing Israel is ‘First Northern War

“The gravest threat we face is not the third Lebanon war, but the first northern war – simultaneous conflict with Hezbollah in Lebanon, Syria, and Iran, which Hamas in the south is likely to join,” warned IDF Maj.-Gen. (res.) Amos Yadlin, former head of the IDF’s Military Intelligence Directorate.

Speaking while presenting President Reuven Rivlin on Wednesday with the 2019 Strategic Assessment from the Institute for National Security Studies (INSS) which he currently heads, Yadlin noted that “Israel of 2019 is a strong country, the IDF is extremely powerful and deters our enemies.” The INSS research highlights the major political and diplomatic issues facing Israel in the near future. On the list of leading threats by severity, the INSS’s 2019 assessment includes war with all the enemy forces and on all fronts in the north – Iran on the Golan Heights, Hezbollah (Iran proxy) in Lebanon, and the Syrian regime – as well as a military conflict in the south with Hamas (Iran funded)  in Gaza and a deterioration of the situation in Judea and Samaria.

 

TRUMP’S PEACE PLAN: WILL IT BRING JUDGEMENT ON THE USA?

Could the Peace Plan for Israel and Palestine, the plan, which President Donald Trump has dubbed the ‘Deal of the Century,’ be the covenant in Daniel 9:27 that introduces the last seven years prior to Jesus return to earth to commence His Millennial reign? When Yeshua was asked about His coming and the end of the age, in Matthew 24: 15, He referred to the above verse in Daniel.

All who have tried to create lasting peace between Israel and her neighbours have failed;  yet, the Word of God says that one man will appear to succeed. This man’s peace plan will begin the final countdown to the return of Yeshua HaMashiach (Jesus the Messiah).

After the Israeli elections on April 9th, President Trump is planning to unveil a Two State “Final Solution” which will not only be dangerous for Israel, but will be the 4th and Final National Apostasy which positions the United States to receive God’s poured out Judgement.

It won’t be Trump’s Peace Plan that ushers in peace for the first half of the seven years prior to Jesus return to rule and reign. Trump has been God’s Cyrus as Jonathan reveals in his presentation below. However, if Trump’s Peace Plan forces Israel to give up land then we know that his actions will bring God’s judgement upon the USA.

In light of the urgency to make peace in the Middle East, it is vital to understand what the Prophet Daniel and Yeshua (Jesus) told us about this peace plan and the last days, so we can recognise the times and warn others also.

Joel gives us the end of the story: “I will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat.  There I will put them on trial for what they did to My inheritance, My people Israel, because they scattered My people among the nations and divided up My land.”  (Joel 3:2)

Jonathan Cahn ties Daniel’s 70 weeks prophecy into events that are unfolding in our time. Be amazed at the detail given in this prophecy of coming events, confirming the Bible is God’s Word and trustworthy. All of the unfulfilled Biblical prophecies of the end times will happen exactly as prophesied.

70th WEEK OF DANIEL

Daniel’s prophecy of the “70 Weeks” may be the most important prophecy in the Bible and the most amazing. Its sweeping panorama allowed the wise in ancient Israel to know the exact timing of the arrival of Jesus upon his first coming and His death.

Then, after the sixty-two weeks the Messiah will be cut off and have nothing, and the people of the prince who is to come will destroy the city and the sanctuary.” Dan. 9:25. This part of the prophecy has occurred. The rest of the prophecy provides incredible details about Jesus’s second coming.

This sermon by Jonathan Cahn on Daniel’s 70 weeks is excellent. The only significant difference in my view of this prophecy and Jonathan’s, is the identity of the Antichrist. As most of you already know, I believe the Antichrist will be a Muslim , possibly the Mahdi, the Muslim Messiah and they believe his arrival is imminent.  The people of the prince to come that destroyed the city were not Roman.

This phrase about the coming prince is one of the most controversial passages in the entire Bible!  The Greek perfectly renders this thought. Jesus was going to destroy the city and Temple with the one that is coming. In this case that was Titus, the general of the Roman forces. Jesus destroyed the city using his agents, which just happened to be Titus and his soldiers. After examining a sampling of evidence from both ancient historians as well as the most cutting-edge modern scholarship to date, we may very confidently conclude that the ‘Roman’ soldiers in the Eastern provinces that destroyed Jerusalem and the Temple were in fact Eastern peoples – the inhabitants of Asia Minor, Syria, Arabia and Egypt. The people of the prince to come were from Middle Eastern countries that are now Muslim.

GREAT EARTHQUAKES PROPHESIED

“When he opened the sixth seal, I looked, and there came a great earthquake; the sun became black as sackcloth, the full moon became like blood. . .  The sky vanished like a scroll rolling itself up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place.” (Rev 6:12, 14)

“Then there were flashes of lightning, roaring, and crashes of thunder, and there was a tremendous earthquake—an earthquake unequalled since humanity has been on the earth, so tremendous was that earthquake.” (Rev 16:18)

Strange waves rippled around the world, and nobody knows why

Instruments picked up the seismic waves more than 10,000 miles away—but bizarrely, nobody felt them.

On the morning of November 11, just before 9:30 UT, a mysterious rumble rolled around the world.

The seismic waves began roughly 15 miles off the shores of Mayotte, a French island sandwiched between Africa and the northern tip of Madagascar. The waves buzzed across Africa, ringing sensors in Zambia, Kenya, and Ethiopia. They traversed vast oceans, humming across Chile, New Zealand, Canada, and even Hawaii nearly 11,000 miles away.

People mock Christians who take the judgements in the Book of Revelation in a literal fashion, claiming it is all “symbolic” and out of the realm of possibility and will not correspond to a future, historical reality.

And yet just recently we received a foretaste of what will become a devastating global earthquake. There was a global earthquake on a small scale that happened on Nov 11, where it even slightly “moved” some islands. The notion of global earthquakes, islands moving, and other global catastrophes can no longer be denied as out of the realm of possibility. God’s word says it will happen in the not too distant future.

ANTICHRIST AND DECEPTION

Another important teaching from Nelson Walters on the “end times” Most Christians and prophecy teachers focus on the physical implications of the Great Tribulation. Jesus and Paul focused primarily on the spiritual implications – especially on the deception of Antichrist which will lead to the falling away. In this video learn how Matt. 24, the Parable of the Ten Virgins, and 2 Thess. 2 are all interrelated and give important application for the church today.

GOD HAS REVEALED HIS “END TIMES” PLAN

The Bible is full of prophecies, at least 25% of its content and those already fulfilled were accurate. We can reasonably expect, the many yet to be fulfilled will also happen exactly as prophesied. However, those prophecies that are yet to be fulfilled are not so easy to interpret. There is a lot of disagreement on specific events, such as the last seven years prior to Jesus return and the timing of the Rapture.

I need to say that it has only been over the last two years that the Holy Spirit has burdened me to alert the church that recent events show clearly we are approaching the last seven years of Daniels 70 Weeks (Daniel 9:24-27). Moreover, God has miraculously connected me with the right partners to put together resources for the “last days” church. Check out http://www.powerpointsermons.net.

The Bible does reveal that God has an “end times” plan.

We know the end of the story, dead in Christ raised first, and the saints who are alive will be raptured before God pours out His wrath on an unbelieving world.

After God’s wrath has been poured out with the Trumpet and Bowl judgements, Jesus will return with us believers in our glorified bodies, exactly as He said He would, to Mount Olives. He will then complete the unfinished work to save and restore Israel where He will rule and reign  from Jerusalem for one thousand years (Millennial Kingdom).

Make sure you are in a church that understands the urgency of the times. A church that takes seriously Jesus command to GO and take The Great Commission to an unbelieving world. A church like in the Book of Acts that is raising up disciples who in turn will raise up more disciples.
