The Mark of the Beast

by Britt Gillette

The Bible says a day will come when the whole world will be ruled by an evil dictator – the Antichrist. This one man will dominate the world politically, economically, and religiously (Revelation 13:1-18). People will actually worship him (Revelation 13:12), and he will force them to accept a mark on the right hand or forehead (Revelation 13:16). If they refuse, they will lose all ability to buy or sell anything.

For years, people have wondered what this mark will look like, and while we can speculate, we’re no closer to knowing what the mark will look like than we’ve ever been. That said, we do know that the implementation of this mark is not some far off event centuries in the future. How can I be so sure? Because Jesus Himself said so.

Out of Many, One

by Pete Garcia 

Currently, out of the desperation in Europe’s ongoing financial crises, there is in the works a marrying of the technology that currently exists with the financial restructuring that is seemingly channelizing the EU into becoming a more unified, streamlined, cashless society.

They may not know this at the present, but each crisis seems to move from one country to the next and it always seems a little grimmer than the one before.  But the trend is moving them (and us) in the direction in which fiat currencies are becoming cumbersome, unreliable, and irrelevant.  Removing local currencies such as the British pound or the Polish z³oty is just a matter of manipulating their values until they either become too expensive to be practical or they are devalued on purpose.

The Three Kings Of Daniel 11

by Jack Kelley

“The king will do as he pleases. He will exalt and magnify himself above every god and will say unheard-of things against the God of gods. He will be successful until the time of wrath is completed, for what has been determined must take place. (Daniel 11:36)

“At the time of the end the king of the South will engage him in battle, and the king of the North will storm out against him with chariots and cavalry and a great fleet of ships. He will invade many countries and sweep through them like a flood.” (Daniel 11:40)

Three separate kings are in view in Daniel 11:36 & 40 and their identities must be discovered to fully understand what will happen in the days leading up to the End of the Age.  They are the King who exalts himself,  the King of the North, and the King of the South.   All of Daniel 11:4-35 has been taken up with a discussion of various generations of the King of the North and the King of the South.  The King who exalts himself is neither, and yet subdues them both.  Let’s see if we can identify these three kings as to their roles in the world’s final drama.

Islamic Eschatology What are the end-time prophecies of Islam?

by 

The holiest book of Islam is the Qu’ran, often spelled Koran in English. It supposedly contains statements of the Islamic god, Allah, which were given to his prophet, Mohammad, by the Angel Gabriel.

Mohammad was illiterate, so scribes wrote down what he said over a 23 year period of time, until his death in 632 AD. Much of the content of the Qu’ran was delivered by Mohammad while he was experiencing seizures that even his first wife considered to be demonic in nature. The scribes began compiling the Qu’ran shortly before Mohammad’s death. The Qu’ran is about the length of the New Testament. (Copies of the Qu’ran can be purchased at any general bookstore. An interactive copy can be found on the Internet at www.hti.umich.edu/k/koran.)

Why Ezekiel 38 Will Precede Daniel 9

by Jack Kelley

“Seventy ‘sevens’ are decreed for your people and your holy city to finish transgression, to put an end to sin, to atone for wickedness, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy and to anoint the most holy.

“Know and understand this: From the issuing of the decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until the Anointed One, the ruler, comes, there will be seven ‘sevens,’ and sixty-two ‘sevens.’ It will be rebuilt with streets and a trench, but in times of trouble”(Daniel 9:24-25).

Dispensationalists believe, with good reason, that there’s one “seven” left to fulfill from the promise the angel Gabriel delivered to Daniel near the end of the Babylonian captivity. From the King James translation we know the prophecy as Daniel’s 70 weeks, where each week represents 7 years. 69 of these weeks (7 plus 62) had passed when the Messiah presented Himself to Israel as their King on the only day in His life that He did so. On our calendar it became known as the first Palm Sunday.

Israel’s ”Alleged” Temple

by Jack Kinsella

One would think that, of all the possible efforts to revise history imaginable, the piece of history that would be the hardest to revise would be to deny the historical existence of a Jewish Temple in Jerusalem.

First, the Bible is filled with references to a Jewish Temple. And the Dead Sea Scrolls discovered in 1947 in Qumron have conclusively and undeniably confirmed that the Biblical record is unchanged since the scrolls were buried there in AD 70.

Secondly, the Qumrom discovery included hundreds of Temple artifacts, documents, drawings, and other forms of historical confirmation as to the existence of a Jewish Temple in Jerusalem up until the time of the Qumrom community’s destruction around AD 70.

The Woman and The Dragon – Revelation 12

by Rapturewatch

Many people find the book of Revelation hard to understand. This is true because the Apostle John used “Apocalyptic Writing” when he penned the book of Revelation. In this study I am going to discuss chapter 12 (The Woman and The Dragon) of the book of Revelation. Hopefully I can provide some understanding to this piece of scripture.

At the time John wrote the book of Revelation all of the disciples had been martyred and the Roman Emperor Domitian had ordered that John be executed by throwing him into a cauldron of boiling oil, but God intervened. God protected him, and kept him alive. Since he couldn’t kill him, Domitian had John exiled to the island of Patmos. The church was under heavy persecution, so many theologians believe John wrote the book of Revelation in Apocalyptic writing in order to get his message past the Romans and to the seven churches.

Ready or Not!

By Donna Wasson

Here it comes. As the march towards the Utopian lie of a ‘New World Order’ continues its inevitable encroachment on society, the demise of cash and coins is coming, and very soon. Once all cash transactions are eliminated and all banking, buying and selling is conducted digitally, the segue into a one world society and government will be seamless. If you think about it, America has almost accomplished this transition.

Only 7% of all transactions in the U.S. involve cash and these are usually for small purchases, such as coffee, or paying for a burger in the drive-thru. Medium to large transactions are overwhelmingly paid for with credit or debit cards. We don’t even think twice about whipping out that plastic card, swiping it in the little machine and entering our secret pin number. We’ve been doing it for years. Behavioral conditioning at its finest.

New Age Occult And Coming Tribulation

By Mike Taylor

I have many people write me concerning the coming tribulation and one of their family members involved in the New Age movement.  A lot of the time, it involves a young person who has been influenced by this world and thinking that they can be a “soldier” to battle the coming One World Government that is shaping up and headed by some force called the “Illuminati” or an elite group of manipulators of this present age. First we need to define what this New Age Movement is grounded upon.  If you look up the definition of New Age via even Wikipedia, you find this about the movement:

The Powerful Delusion

by Jack Kelley

The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders, and in every sort of evil that deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness. (2 Thes. 2:9-12)

It’s no secret that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad  is preoccupied with the coming of a Shiite Islamic messiah figure, al Mahdi.  This continues to generate concern that a nuclear-armed Iran would create the kind of global chaos he believes will be necessary to set the stage for the Mahdi’s return.  Recent events  seem to confirm this.  For example, after years of promising that their nuclear ambitions are purely peaceful, Iran just announced their intention to test a 1 kiloton nuclear warhead this year. Iran’s Supreme Leader is thought to favor announcing Iran’s nuclear capability as an accomplished fact as soon as possible.
