WHAT IS HAPPENING IN PROPHECY, with all this terrorism turmoil???

 

Terrorism is all about in this world. Terrorists are infiltrating many countries, and inflicting their hatred upon Christians and other non Islamic people. Recently, we have seen the United States is taking in at least 100,000 per year, not counting those who illegally cross our borders. Of the Arab Christians fleeing the slaughter of their numbers in Syria, many terrorists are infiltrating their numbers to gain access to Europe, and another 65000 of those are being now delivered to the United States, without proper vetting to determine the Christians from the terrorists.

The Paris slaughter of innocent victims used some of the radical Islam immigrants who had hid in the influx of legitimate immigrants seeking safety in Europe. Radical Islam terrorists are likely in groups of Syrian Christians who do need safety and are being mercifully brought to the United States. The concern of the radical Islam terrorists that are hiding in their midst can cause legitimate concerns here.

Yet, we as Christians can be concerned, but need not fret that the Lord is not in control. These things are part of prophetic fulfillments.

Some may be ‘fainting’ in fear and ignorance of what God is allowing. Fainting in the ranks requires us to be ready to help. We must be anxious to be of aid to those within our own ranks who are weak in battle. We cannot think we are the only one who is important in the battle. Surely, the Lord will win the ultimate battle anyhow, but we must seek to keep the most warriors in the battle for the Lord, because He so desires such.

Revelation 2:3

"And for My sake, hath labored and not fainted."

We are in God's army, and we will see victory as long as we don't surrender to the enemy.

Isaiah 7:4-7

"And say unto him, Take heed, and be quiet, fear not, neither be fainthearted... Thus saith the Lord God, It shall not stand, neither shall it come to pass."

Some very prophetic fulfilling events are currently occurring in Syria, Iraq. The media and political pundits have for the most part been ignoring what is going on there. Yet, there is prophetic significance to these events.

First, what is happening?

 

The United States left behind many weapons, bombs, planes, vehicles of war, guns, ammunition when they departed Iraq. The United States has been shipping more weapons now to the local militias in Iraq and in Syria. Russia is shipping weapons, building airports, and training locals also. The weapons of mass destruction that the lying media tells us never existed in Iraq lhas been located in Iraq and many in Syria where Saddam Hussein had them shipped just prior to the Iraq war. That area is being deluged with weapons, and this is all part of fulfillment of Bible prophecy.

 

Between the Russian influx of weapons, and the weapons that the United States has left in Iraq, there is an arsenal that is unmatched by any other Arab nation.

ISIS, a Sunni Islamic jihadi group, an offshoot of Al Qaeda are sworn enemies of both Israel and the United States. They have gained control of geopolitically vital cities in both Syria and Iraq over the last year.

These ISIS forces have conquered across northern Iraq, and have put into effect Sharia law on the citizens of Nineveh province. They prohibit women from leaving the house unless absolutely necessary, and insist that women "dress decently and wear wide clothes." They ban the possession of guns and non-ISIS flags. They seized oil fields in Salahuddin province and looted the central bank and confiscated many millions of dollars.

The government in Iraq will fall. They will then be powerful enough to finish their conquest of Syria, and the two will be one nation, powerful and militant.

Why is this prophetically significant?

I have for decades been studying Bible prophecy. I have noticed that the Antichrist is prophesied to come from the Syria-Iraq nation of the last days. In Bible days, those two countries were one nation, and in the last days, they are again to be one nation.

At present, the antichrist’s identity is unknown. Yet, we do know from Bible prophecy that he will not be recognized until after the rapture of the church.

2 Thessalonians 2:6-10 (KJV)

6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he (the antichrist) might be revealed in his time.

7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he (the church) who now letteth will let, until he (the church) be taken out of the way.

8 And then shall that Wicked (the antichrist) be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of His mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming:

9 Even him (the antichrist), whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

Many attempts and guesses have been hazarded by persons in the church age, but these attempts are not only futile, but are unwise. Our gaze is supposed to be for the Lord Jesus. We are to look for Him, not for the Antichrist.

He will come from Syria-Iraq.

 

(Dan. 7:23-24, 8:9,20-25, 11:36-45)

Daniel 7:23-24 (KJV)

23 Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.

24 And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings.

Daniel 8:9 (KJV)

9 And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land.

Daniel 8:20-25 (KJV)

20 The ram which thou sawest having two horns are the kings of Media and Persia.

21 And the rough goat is the king of Grecia: and the great horn that is between his eyes is the first king.

22 Now that being broken, whereas four stood up for it, four kingdoms shall stand up out of the nation, but not in his power.

23 And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.

24 And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people.

25 And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.

Daniel 11:36-45 (KJV)

36 And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done.

37 Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all.

38 But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things.

39 Thus shall he do in the most strong holds with a strange god, whom he shall acknowledge and increase with glory: and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for gain.

40 And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him: and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over.

41 He shall enter also into the glorious land, and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon.

42 He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the land of Egypt shall not escape.

43 But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and of silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt: and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps.

44 But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many.

45 And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him.

Amidst many of the various attempts to identify the Antichrist, some have tried to make him a citizen of Rome, of the United States, or of Russia. The Scriptures clearly teach that he will come from the area we know as Syria and Iraq. We are watching that nation be born, the world will soon see that ruler, we call the antichrist, arise to rule that area, and soon begin conquests of Europe. We, the Christians, will be raptured prior to the revelation of the antichrist.

This antichrist will be inhabited by a demon that will return from the abyss to inhabit him. Once, that same demon lived out of the abyss.

Revelation 17:8 (KJV)

8 The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.

In John's day, the demon was in the abyss. This demon will drive the Antichrist to do his great conquests. Ten kingdoms will let him rule them. He will need to conquer only three of them.

He will perform "lying wonders" and signs to confirm a lie. II Th.2:10) Too easily are even Christians watching only for signs and wonders. We must heed the oft-warning of the Lord to beware of some signs and wonders. The devil also uses lying signs to deceive.

He will lead the world to temporary peace and prosperity following the terrible war that occurs at the beginning of the tribulation. However, his reign will bring spiritual darkness, famine, wars, death, violence, and sin.

He will not rule the whole world. Daniel 11:41 shows that he will not rule Edom, Ammon, and Moab. At the end of the tribulation, he is returning from conquering Russia and eastern Europe. The "ALL" of Rev. 13:7,8,16,17 is a SYNECDOCHE. (As one would say "everyone in town was there") The beast has 10 horns, not 100+, as he would need if he ruled the whole world. In Rev. 16:13-16, three demon spirits, as frogs, go from nation to nation to get the other rulers of the world to join the armies of the Antichrist at Armageddon. So the Antichrist must not rule these countries, or he could have simply ordered them to come.

The current world crisis of radical muslim immigrants flooding Europe helps us understand how the antichrist from Syria-Iraq can rule a ten nation group of mostly European nations. We are watching as the Islam invaders are taking a foothold in that area, and will soon be able to sway the nations now part of NATO to instead become part of the kingdom of the antichrist.

Russia has spent decades arming the Syrian government currently there. We have spent several decades drilling oil wells, and now providing the best of our weaponry. We have now deserted all of that weaponry, and the wealth of that oil producing nation, and jihadist militants are confiscating the totality.

We started with the goal of removing the ‘weapons of mass destruction’ in the hands of the Saddam Hussein regime. We destroyed his kingdom, and armed the opposers with weaponry far superior to what Saddam had. The chemical weapons of Saddam were shipped just before the war to Syria. We have an agreement to have them removed, but most are still there, falling now, with the weaponry of both powerful regimes, into the hands of the militant of ISIS terrorists.

One coming ruler of this Syria-Iraq nation will be ruling after the USA and Russia are no longer super powers. The new super power will be the Antichrist, and this soon-to-be nation of Syria-Iraq. So, what is happening is part of the prophetic revelation for that area, and for the world.

Revelation 13:4 (KJV)

4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?

The inferred answer to that question above, is that there is no one, no nation able to withstand the military might of this ruler of Syria-Iraq. Once Russia and the United States are negated by the war that starts the tribulation, the antichrist will rise to power, within the first three years of the tribulation.

Revelation 13:7 (KJV)

...and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.

The super power of the tribulation will be the Syria-Iraq nation, now about to be formed, ruled under the savage, terrorist we call the antichrist.

The United States of America has been the superpower of the last days. In the space race, in the United Nations, in being the world's police force, in economic power - the United States has dominated. It dominates even now. Yet, the Antichrist is the soon-to-be super power, who is going to soon rule this combined nation about to emerge, Syria-Iraq (or whatever they choose to call it).

This antichrist is likely a man, currently in Tyre, gaining wealth and popularity. He is a Syrian Jew, who will step forward following the defeat of Russia in the first war of the tribulation. That war between the U.S. and Russia will have killed over a billion people. The U.S.A. will lose that war, and an almost totally and greatly weakened Russia, seeing that the U.S.A. cannot any longer defend Israel–will decide to take Israel as a spoil.

Russia will send its army to invade Israel. "Gog" who leads the armies of Russia against Israel at the beginning of the tribulation, may be called the Antichrist--but his defeat will bring the emergence of the real Antichrist.

To defend itself, Israel explodes atomic weapons in the atmosphere, and the Russian bodies fall upon the mountains of Israel. Five sixths of the Russian army dies. It takes 7 months before they can start to bury the dead, because of the radioactivity.

During that 7 months, the Antichrist, the second leader of this Syria-Iraq nation, now about to be formed, will begin forming alliances. We can see now why the nation of the Antichrist will be considered the super power of that day.

Both the shiites and the sunni of Islam believe in a Mahdi, even though a Mahdi is not mentioned in the Quran. They believe that this Mahdi will precede the prophet Isa (Jesus) who comes at the end of the world.

Islam believes that a ‘jesus’ will return to earth. This ‘jesus’ will come to kill all who do not accept Mohammed, and their ‘god’, Alah. All Christians will be killed who do not convert, and this ‘jesus’ will deny any atoning death that we know the true Jesus has done for us.

An ‘armageddon’ war will bring the Mahdi to be seen, they believe, and after that war, the remaining Jews are supposed to be killed. Militant Islam intends then, (though it already seems like it now) to make war on Christians, a war they call the ‘Great slaughter of the intercessor (prophet). When Mahdi and this fake ‘jesus’ are both in power, according to their false heresy, no other religion than Islam will be allowed.

The Mahdi is supposed to be a descendant of Muhammad, from his daughter Fatimah. He was to have been born in 868 in Medina, Saudi Arabia. He is believed to be still alive, in hiding deep within a well, since he was five years old. He is supposed to be tall, with facial features like Muhammed, with fair complexion, broad forehead, and a prominent nose.

This Mahdi is supposed to precede the coming of their ‘Isa’ (jesus). A loud call from the heavens signals the Mahdi’s appearance. He then wins their ‘armageddon’ war, and then their ‘jesus’ returns. This is all false heresy, a lie the devil would like to believe himself. The ‘truth and justice’, that they say then entails, amounts to the mass murder of all Jews and Christians. This is a pipe dream of the devil, believed by millions. There are some ‘so called Christians’ who are entering into this deception, and trying to make their Mahdi and jesus to be like unto our Elijah and the true Jesus.

 

This deceiving one, the second ruler of the nation of Syria-Iraq, will be temporarily accepted by the Jews as the Messiah:

John 5:43 (KJV)

43 I am come in My Father's name, and ye receive Me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.

Many religions will receive him. Apostate Christians who did not go in the rapture will accept him a Christ-reincarnated. Moslems may accept him as their great prophet, and the New Age will accept him as their promised great leader. The other religions accept him as a promised prophet.

This antichrist offers ideas and ways for nations to avoid future wars. On the 250th day of the tribulation, he signs an agreement to have peace with Israel and allow them to sacrifice at a newly built temple. He signs such an agreement out of fear of the ARK OF THE COVENANT that has been returned from Ethiopia where it has been kept safe.

The Antichrist battles three nations and the rest of the 10 countries of the old Roman empire turn their power over to him. He rules this federation from Babylon for 3 ½ years. Israel accepts him as the Messiah. The backslidden Christians who missed the rapture accept him as Christ-reincarnated. The other religions accept him as a promised prophet. His political answers include economic policy that requires a number branded on each person in order for them to buy and sell.

Midway through the tribulation, he goes into the temple at Jerusalem and has the false prophet set up a statue of him in the Holy of Holies. Anyone who goes before it and does not worship it is killed by it. Many Jews will realize at that time that he is not their Messiah, and they will flee to Petra. He tries to drown them while they flee, but the earth opens and swallows the water. There is a city in Iraq, built with the stones of the original Babylon, and awaiting a ruler to rule from it. The stated plan for that yet empty city, is that it is awaiting the time when one ruler will rule the whole of Arab peoples. The Bible indicates the antichrist will choose to rule from it for the first half of the tribulation. The last 3 ½ years of the tribulation, he rules from Jerusalem.

During his rule of this Syria-Iraq nation, he will take over many other nations. While he is doing that, two new enemies emerge, the two witnesses, Enoch and Elijah return from heaven to minister and oppose this Antichrist. They do signs and wonders.

Finally, after their 3 ½ year ministry--the demon within the Antichrist kills the two witnesses. After a celebration of 3 ½ days, their bodies are resurrected and ascend to heaven. Angry, beyond measure, the Antichrist leads his armies to Russia to defeat them.

After defeating them, he is puffed up in pride and returns back to Israel with the plan to wipe out every Jew. The Jews in Petra have realized by this time that Jesus is the real Messiah and call out for Jesus to return to save them.

Jesus does return with us, the saints, and the battle of Armageddon ensues. The Antichrist and the False Prophet are thrown into the Lake of Fire--1000 years before the other sinners are taken from hell and put there.

The antichrist is a man that is possessed of the one (Belial) that the devil prepared to be one who could possess a man, and make him very powerful, and intent on the evil plan of the devil.

The emergence of this soon to be powerful nation, armed by Russia and the USA, is happening now. We can watch it unfold on some television networks. There will be ‘who’s to blame’ reports, and ‘what is going to happen now’ questions, but for the Christian, as regrettable as all this is, it is fulfillment of Bible prophecy. It is unfolding before our eyes. We are in the last days of the last days.

We do not rejoice in seeing the antichrist about to be revealed, but he will not be revealed till after the rapture of the church. So, in seeing things fall in line, seeing an invasion of radical Islam terrorists take and disrupt Europe, assures us the rapture is soon to come. We leave before that ten nation kingdom of the antichrist comes to pass, so we are very near the rapture of the church.

Need we despair? Need we hide and act like these things are devastating to the Christians? No !!! We pray for this world, we preach the Bible prophecy that alerts us to Jesus’ return, and preach a salvation message to the world before it is too late.

Luke 21:28 (KJV)

28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
