With passage of UN Resolution 2334 by the United Nations Security Council on Dec. 23, 2016, a dramatic shift is beginning to occur in global politics. With this action, which condemns Israel for the settlements they’ve created in the West Bank (Judea and Samaria) and in east Jerusalem, the world is entering into an even more dangerous period. We are coming upon a time in which all nations will eventually turn against Israel...[more]
Will Israel be Redeemed in the End Times?
For thousands of years Israel has been scattered among the nations in unbelief. Rejecting Christ, they were removed as a nation in 70 AD and spent centuries without a homeland. Even now, after they have been reborn as a nation in their ancient homeland just as the prophets predicted, Israel still does not believe in their Messiah, Jesus. What will happen to Israel in the End Times and will they ever be redeemed in time to enter the Kingdom Age? The prophecies concerning the salvation of Israel describe an amazing path back to God that will redeem the nation even as the world is collapsing around them [more].
The Time of the End
The recent fulfillment of End Times Biblical prophecy proves that we are now living in the Last Days. Predictions made thousands of years ago are coming true in our generation as never before. This means that the Return of Christ is drawing near, and there's not much time left. The current world system of evil is about to end in a fiery conflagration, and a spectacular new world of peace will be set up in its place by the Lord himself. You can actually become a part of this new Kingdom through a simple act of faith.
Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me” (John 14:6; MEV). Now is the time to Escape to Safety by repenting of sins and believing in the Son of God!
The World Moves Closer to the Mark of the Beast
The Mark of the Beast is now getting closer to becoming a reality than many have imagined. The recent commercialization of biometric identification technologies and the vast global network allowing the electronic transfer of digital bits of money are both keys to this development. These technologies are now coming together to allow people to make purchases using the identifying characteristics of their hands, eyes, or face...[more]
A New Sanhedrin Arises in Israel
A group of senior rabbis in Israel are now operating the first Sanhedrin court since the rabbinical organization was dissolved almost 1600 years ago. The Sanhedrin was originally one of the principal forces in Israel, both in politics and in religion. The events surrounding the reestablishment of the Sanhedrin and the movement to rebuild the Temple further prepare the nation of Israel for the fulfillment of End Times prophecy. A functioning Levitical priesthood and the rebuilding of the Temple are both required to fulfill many of the key events predicted for the Last Days...[more]
Jewish Priests are Preparing for the Temple to be Rebuilt in Jerusalem
Priests of the Levitical order are being trained by the Temple Institute in preparation for the Third Temple to be built in the Old City of Jerusalem. The priests are relearning the laws concerning worship of the Lord, which were given by Moses in the first books of the Bible. They had been neglected for thousands of years as the Jews were scattered from their land and lived without a central place of worship. The ceremonies of worship include the daily offerings, the special dedications, and the high holy days or feast days of Israel. All of these activities are in preparation for the new Temple to be built on Temple Mount...[more]
A Time of Great Trouble is Coming
The prophets saw a time of tremendous upheaval and destruction just before the end of this age. Some of them predicted that fire would consume all the works of man, while others said it would be a time of thick clouds and darkness. Jesus predicted that immediately before He returns the world would experience a time of trouble unparalleled in history where all life would be threatened. In the Bible, this time is called the Great Tribulation. The prophets predicted that it would start with a war in the Middle East and lead to a global battle. People today call this World War III, and it ends with a frightening nuclear exchange, which will devastate the world. The following sections describe these prophecies, and as you will see, that coming day of trouble is closer than you think!
World War III
The Bible predicts that a devastating world war will occur just before Christ returns. The battles will continue for 3 1/2 years and involve the Antichrist and his armies fighting against forces that seek to destroy his empire. The major powers involved with this war will be Europe, the U.S., Russia, China, many nations surrounding Israel, and ultimately every other nation on the face of the Earth. In the end, all nations will do battle near and within the nation of Israel as God gathers all their armies for destruction at Armageddon [more].
The Abomination of Desolation
During the last week of Jesus' life, his disciples asked him about the signs of his Second Coming. In Matthew 24 Jesus told them of a major event that would signal the start of the devastating wars of the end. He called this event The Abomination of Desolation, and that it would be caused by the Antichrist and mark the end of his reign. Jesus told everyone around Jerusalem that when you see this event occur, run for the mountains and don't look back! [more]
The Time of the End
The most important passage concerning the wars of the end occurs in the book of Daniel. In Daniel 11 and continuing into Daniel 12, the prophet discusses in detail the major prophetic events as they will occur during the reigns of the last three world powers. In Daniel 11:40, he predicts what would happen specifically at "the time of the end", which would mark the beginning of the wars that would "consume and destroy" the kingdom of the Antichrist just before the Lord returns. As you might expect, it all starts with another Middle East war...[more]
Russia's Coming Attack on Israel
The Bible predicts that the final wars leading to Armageddon will begin with another Middle East conflict. Ezekiel 38 and 39 contain perhaps the most fascinating and frightening prophecies in the entire Bible concerning these future battles. The prophet Daniel only hinted at the fact that a northern power would attack Israel at the end; however, Ezekiel was very specific. He named the exact regions that would launch this attack, and today they perfectly correlate to the nation of Russia and its allies in the Middle East and to the north...[more]
The Battles Begin
Ezekiel describes in great detail the future attack of Russia and her allies upon the nation of Israel, which is predicted to occur in the Last Days. In Ezekiel 38, the prophet predicts Russia's sudden military move upon the Jewish nation along with an initial attempt at diplomatic intervention to stop the war, which will ultimately fail. The battles begin with a Middle East war involving Syria and Egypt attacking Israel as predicted by Daniel, but this move by Russia will start a broader World War, which will lead to a devastating thermonuclear holocaust [more].
The Kings of the East Attack
In one of the most amazing prophecies of the Bible, the Apostle John predicted in Revelation that after Russia's attack on Israel, the Kings of the East will begin their attack. John says that the number of their army will be 200 million (Rev. 9:16)! This is an incredible prediction, seeing that there was only about 300 million people alive on the entire Earth in his day. However, in our time, it is now possible that China, India, and the other countries to the east of Israel could actually field an army of this size...[more]
The Kingdom of Heaven is Near!
As the End Times come to a close with the Return of Christ, this does not mean that there will be an end to all things; nor will the destruction of the Last Days mean the end of all life on Earth. When Jesus comes, the Bible predicts that He will rescue his people and usher in a new age of absolute peace and righteousness, called the Kingdom of Heaven, which will be unlike anything the world has ever seen. The Kingdom of Heaven is predicted to be spectacular in beauty and a blessing to all who live within it. Unlike this present age, in which life is tough and the world is often threatening, the world of the Kingdom will be transformed into a Garden of Eden wherein there will be no harm and no danger ever again...[more]
The People of the Kingdom
After the battles of the end have been won by Christ, the resurrected followers of Jesus and the armies of heaven will begin to descend upon the earth. The next series of events that are prophesied to occur after this point all relate to securing the Earth from further harm and identifying or choosing the people of the Kingdom. Who will be a part of this age of peace and what will it be like?...[more]
The World has a Time Limit Set by God
Principles of Prophecy in the End Times
The Bible actually tells us how to recognize true prophecy from God and how to logically interpret it. These basic principles are important to grasp before trying to understand End Times prophecy, because they help prevent false conclusions or mistakes in interpretation through taking verses out of context.
Israel in the End Times
The nation of Israel is the primary sign of the Last Days. The prophecies of the End Times require that Israel be reborn as a nation before any of the other prophecies even become relevant. For centuries the Jewish people were scattered among the nations without a homeland. However, in 1948 the rebirth of Israel as an independent nation in the Middle East became the indisputable signal that the End Times has come upon us.
