Jesus sharply rebuked the religious leaders of His day for their lack of discernment. “When it is evening you say, ‘It will be fair weather, for the sky is red’; and in the morning, ‘It will be foul weather today, for the sky is red and threatening.’ Hypocrites! You know how to discern the face of the sky, but you cannot discern the signs of the times” (Matt. 16:2–3). Little has changed.
For example, “The Rev. Dr. Geoff Tunnicliffe, former secretary general of the World Evangelical Alliance and chairman of the Advisory Board of Christian Media Corporation, said in an interview with The Christian Post Tuesday, that there was a John 17 spirit during the two meetings he had with Pope Francis.” (Source: TCP, June 15, 2016)
Pope Francis, self-professed Vicar of Christ, is of the spirit of Antichrist, and evangelicals have no business finding unity with him. God commands, “For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of the light…finding out what is acceptable…And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them” (Eph. 5:8–11).
God desires to get the attention of people for salvation as end-time destructive weather, violence and terrorism grips the world. But Christians finding unity with the Vatican’s doctrines of devils who also believe in God, “and tremble” (James 2:19) is NOT what God intends. No, we must discern by God’s Word and His Spirit, “what accord has Christ with Belial?” (2 Cor. 6:15).
End-time signs continue to ramp up. NBC News, June 24, 2016, “The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped more than 600 points on Friday as markets around the world reacted to a vote by citizens of the United Kingdom to leave the European Union.” EXPRESS, June 24, 2016, “END OF THE EU? Germany warns FIVE more countries could leave Europe after Brexit.”
The Standard reported, June 24, 2016, “Brexit is a bad omen for world commerce…The forces driving those populist uprisings, both against EU bureaucrats in Brussels and elected officials in Washington, are complex and intertwined. They include long-simmering racial tensions and increased political polarization.”
Signs of the end of the age are worldwide and God desires the attention of people for salvation, and He is looking for ministers of the whole gospel who are not afraid to preach the Words of Jesus, to warn that we now see the beginning of the end of this present age. Life on earth will become increasingly difficult…for Christians, that is…and they need to be taught the truth.
Now this: though I didn’t know the specifics, I knew there must be events that would reduce the 28 member-nations of the European Union to 10, which is the revived ancient Roman Empire. It is now reasonably clear that illegal open borders immigration policies thrust upon citizens of the West by the elite is a major event in advancing that required reduction of EU member nations.
This is huge end-time prophecy being fulfilled in broad daylight. The EU is the revived Roman Empire of King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream which the prophet Daniel interpreted, saying, “as the toes of the feet were partly of iron and partly of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly fragile” (Dan. 2:42). The 10 toes are the 10 nations of that final fourth beast-kingdom.
The first era of Rome’s rule was the, “legs of iron” (Dan. 2:33) of Nebuchadnezzar’s dream. Rome began in about 510 BC and grew to rule the world, but then through internal corruption and marauding bands lost its superiority by about AD 376. While political Rome fell silent for 1,573 years, religious Rome, i.e. the Vatican, dealt persecution and death to all opposing views, until just after WWII. Then political Rome revived, Israel was reborn, and the United Nations was formed. The second era of Rome is now the, “feet partly of iron and partly of clay” (Dan. 2:33), which began forming in 1950, and will be the soon-coming kingdom of the Antichrist.
The EU is, “partly strong and partly fragile”, and as we now see by the Brexit, “partly fragile”. The world has just witnessed either the event or one of many like it to follow that will reduce the EU to its final status of 10 end-time member nations, for which God said, “in the days of these kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed” (Dan. 2:44).
Note this from Zero Hedge, June 26, 2016, “Civil Uprising Escalates As 8th EU Nation Threatens Referendum…Now eight more countries want to hold referendums to exit the EU – France, Holland, Italy, Austria, Finland, Hungary, Portugal, and Slovakia all could leave.” Great Britain has led the departure from the EU and many others will follow suit, fulfilling Jesus’ Words, that, “on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity” (Luke 21:25). How very true!
But elite globalists will not sit idly by and watch their plan for world domination dissolve without deadly intervention(s). The elite, and by that I mean the elite ruling classes of, Pope Francis, the United Nations, the Bilderberg’s, the Freemason’s, the Illuminati, the Rothschild’s, the Rockefeller’s, Chase Bank, Goldman Sachs, the International Court of Justice in The Hague, Netherlands, and many others, are causing death to achieve their ungodly utopian 2030 Agenda.
In Daniel 2, King Nebuchadnezzar’s vision was of an image with a head of gold (Babylon), chest and arms of silver (Medo-Persia), a belly and thighs of bronze (Greek), and legs of iron with feet of iron and clay mixed (Rome), all representative of the four ruling world kingdoms from then to the end of this age. Thus, his vision covered thousands of years and four world kingdoms.
In Daniel 7, however, God gave Daniel his own vision of “the end” represented by four beasts. These beasts are not synonymous with Nebuchadnezzar’s image, but are specific nations in the final generation. Each, I believe, will play an integral part of the end-times. “The first was like a lion, and had eagle’s wings…its wings were plucked off…a second, like a bear…another, like a leopard, which had on its back four wings of a bird…and behold, a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, exceedingly strong. It had huge iron teeth; it was devouring, breaking in pieces, and trampling the residue with its feet…and it had ten horns” (Dan. 7:4–7).
The lion is England for the lion is England’s national symbol, and the “eagle’s wings” which “were plucked off” from the lion which occurred in 1776, is the United States of America. The bear is Russia; and the leopard with four wings, the Fourth Reich, is Germany, economically, the strongest nation in the EU. The fourth beast, is the newly formed New World Order, whose head will be in Rome, the same that fell silent in AD 376, but was revived after WWII and matured concurrently with the 1948 rebirth of the nation of Israel, together with the United Nations.
From Express, June 27, 2016, this headline, “European SUPERSTATE to be unveiled: EU nations ‘to be morphed into one’ post-Brexit. EUROPEAN political chiefs are to take advantage of Brexit by unveiling their long-held plan to morph the continent’s countries into one GIANT SUPERSTATE, it has emerged today…Under the radical proposals EU countries will lose the right to have their own army, criminal law, taxation system or central bank, with all those powers being transferred to Brussels.” EU nations morphing “into one” is the NWO of the end-times!
As nations wrestle for sovereignty against the tyranny of the global elite, much blood will be spilled and the loss of human life, unimaginable. Yet, we know from God’s Word that by the fourth seal of Rev. 6:8 and the sixth trumpet of Rev. 9:15, earth’s population will be reduced by fifty percent! But ultimately, voluntarily or involuntarily all nations will come under the control of Rome, that ten-nation, end-time empire, that beast-kingdom with iron teeth and ten horns.
As more of the end-times unfold, many Christians will be highly offended because they have been taught by pastors to believe the pre-trib rapture lie, and they’ll angrily depart from the faith as Jesus taught. But enduring Christians will increasingly be viewed as Antichrist’s sole obstacle to global utopian peace, especially after he suffers a mortal head wound, but lives, and, “all the world marveled and followed the beast” (Rev. 13:3); then, the mark of the beast arrives! This is the time knowledgeable Christians will flee to the safety and provision of God for 1,260 days.
From Charisma News, this headline of June 27, 2016, “Pentecostal Pastor: My City Told Me the Name of Jesus Paves the Way for Hate Speech.” Do you see what’s happening? Elite globalists are destroying national sovereignty by the illegal immigration of millions of Muslims who hate the West, but then demand that we assimilate to their culture with its Sharia law that executes on demand, Christians, Jews, unbelievers and those of the LGBT lifestyle.
The elite have created racism, hatred, division and civil unrest; and they will even create WW3 to diminish the world’s population to achieve their evil end. From the Millennium Report, June 26, 2016, German President, Joachim Gauk, himself being an elite, said, “The elites are not the problem, the population is at the moment the problem.” Coming sooner than any of us expect, the elite will also forcibly control the food supply – another tool of the elites’ global control.
It’s all unfolding exactly as God foretold in His Word. But is your pastor or teacher preparing you in these things, or is he still effectively stopping your ears to the truth, calling you to place your trust in the false, unbiblical and hopeless pre-trib rapture? Please hear God say, “Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation” (2 Cor. 6:2). Please, respond to Christ in these end-times; believe Him by faith, prepare, endure, and then comes eternal life!
God told us that, “in the days of these kings”, meaning the ten kings of Daniel’s fourth beast-kingdom, which is the EU, “at the last day” (John 6:40, 44, 54), “at the last trumpet” (1 Cor. 15:51–52), at “the first resurrection” (Rev. 20:4–6), “Immediately after the tribulation” (Matt. 24:29–31), “the Lord Himself will descend from heaven” (1 Thess. 4:16) for the rapture; for, “heaven must receive [Christ] until the times of restoration of all things” (Acts 3:21). God does not restore all things until after the tribulation, after the rapture. Please believe Him and prepare.
