The technology that will lead to the final Mark of the Beast is now rapidly being developed and put in place. Governments, banks, and credit card companies are instituting smart cards, biometrics, and RFID scanning to control the money supply and track people. Some are beginning to call for a secure mark to be placed on people to positively identify and validate their participation in society...[more]
As angels sound the final seven trumpets within the Book of Revelation, each trumpet heralds the coming of a major event within the last 3 1/2 years of this age. Revelation Chapters 8 to 11 describe the effects of these trumpets, which include hail, fire, vast destruction, environmental collapse, massive deaths, and the near extinction of life on earth. The last trumpet, however, is completely different from the six before it...[more]
With all the prophecies relating to the doom and gloom of a disobedient Israel it's easy to come away with the feeling that all hope was lost for God's chosen people (see the previous prophecies concerning Israel). For centuries on end Jerusalem was controlled by Gentile powers just as Jesus had predicted. Even those who typically scoff at the Bible have to think twice about the prophecies of Israel's scattering, because recorded history proves...[more]
When Jesus spoke of the rapture as the harvest of the earth, he mentioned the fact that there would be two distinct groups of people gathered together in that day. One group, he said, will be delivered from God's wrath and experience the resurrection of life into new bodies (or be instantly transformed if still alive), while the other group will be gathered together, bound, and burned as "tares"...[more]
Many Old Testament prophets predicted the eventual rebirth of Israel at the end of the age. Ezekiel, Isaiah, and Jeremiah told of a time that Israel would be reborn in the land in unbelief. They also foresaw with great detail the major events and world conditions that the nation would experience before Christ returns. The predictions tell of a time of great danger for the Jewish people...[more]
As the world moves toward a cashless financial system and ultimately the Mark of the Beast to validate identities (see The Identification Problem), a significant new technology has been developed that will partially solve the problem of identity fraud. This invention is so important that it may also represent one of the last stages in the evolution of Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) before the Mark arrives [more].
The key to what is happening to Israel today rests not in the prophecies of Moses (see Gathered in Unbelief), but in the incredible prophecies made by Ezekiel. The book that bears his name is a tremendous apocalyptic writing of almost mystical character. The visions of future events that are described within its pages are rich with metaphors and symbolic action, all of them flowing to the beat of a loving but jealous God...[more]
The Mark of the Beast is predicted in the Bible to be something that the Antichrist and the Final World Empire will require of every man, woman, and child. This Mark will be the dividing line between life and death, Christ and Antichrist, allegiance to God or allegiance to Satan, and it will be given in the right hand or forehead...[more]
The day that the Antichrist is revealed will be the most fearful and confusing day imaginable. Even to Christians who know what is happening and look forward to the coming of Christ, it will still be a shock to experience the Antichrist's rise. All stability will be suddenly taken out of our lives and apparent chaos left in its place. By contrast, for the vast majority of people his sudden rise will seem like a dream come true. Finally reaching the vision of a one-world government and the hope of peace...[more]
The Bible provides the only solution to the evil of this world. While the world is heading for a judgment day as a result of sin and rejecting God's love through Christ, an individual can escape that fate through a simple act of faith. In fact, you can be as certain of making it through the end times and of being saved from judgment as the Lord's predictions are assured of coming true. For those that can see the truth in God's Word through prophecy, know also that the Bible provides a simple and guaranteed alternative to judgement, which is vital for every person to understand.
