How Close Are WE?
I heard President Trump deliver a speech declaring that Jerusalem was the capital of the Nation of Israel. Also on Fox News that peace talks would start soon, while other foreign leaders were condemning President Trump for this action. I think the band is warming up for Daniel’s 70 week to begin!
Daniel’s 70 week , (Dan. 9:24-27) known for it’s teaching on the “Abomination of Desolation” Matt. 24:15 “When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)”. Mark 13:14. “But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains”: Both of these passages of Scripture are textually speaking of the events before when Christ will be returning as king. Daniel 9:24-27 is speaking of this same time that the apostle John writes of in Revelation 13, when speaking of the Anti-Christ.
The Anti-Christ is going to establish a one world government. He will set this new world order according to the the chart at the right. All four of these items are ready to be put in place. When this new leader shows up he will allow Israel to worship in a newly built Temple for 3.5 years and then break his agreement and demand that he is to be worshipped. Assigning a mark for his worshippers to wear and those who do not worship him are reserved as the sacrifice, having their heads cut off (Rev. 20: 4)
The Scripture for tracing this teaching is Daniel 7:8-11, 19-26, 9:24-27, 11:36-45, Revelation 13:1-8. 17:1-13, 20:4. These verses show how the Anti-Christ will rule over a ten nation confederacy that will represent a revived Roman empire. Once the treaty is signed between the Anti-Christ and Israel, allowing Israel toworship God The Father. They will begin to do this in a newly built temple for three and a half years, when the Anti-Christ will put an end to this and demand that all worship him.
John Walvoord summed an article he wrote about the Anti-Christ and the scripture relating topic with this statement. “The appropriateness of this prophecy to our present day is another indication that the church may be ending its earthly course and that end-time prophecy is about to be fulfilled”. This article was taken from the Theological Journal Library CD and posted with permission of Galaxie Software.
I agree with Mr Walvoord when he says “end-time prophecy is about to be fulfilled”. Therefore, what we are seeing in the news these days, referencing the recognizing of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, the activity with North Korea, and news on the GOP and the Democrats, are in fact evidence that end time prophecy is about to be fulfilled.
