  • that will immediately precede the Battle of Armageddon,
  • 00:00:03.230 --> 00:00:07.040
  • and the second coming of Jesus Christ to the earth.
  • 00:00:07.040 --> 00:00:10.150
  • It also describes the specific event
  • 00:00:10.150 --> 00:00:13.120
  • that will mark the beginning of this final seven years.
  • 00:00:13.120 --> 00:00:16.210
  • Today we will talk about the prophecy with a date on it.
  • 00:00:16.210 --> 00:00:21.210
  • (dramatic music)
  • 00:00:22.090 --> 00:00:24.240
  • Close your eyes and imagine
  • 00:00:54.270 --> 00:00:56.150
  • that you are back in World War II.
  • 00:00:56.150 --> 00:00:59.010
  • As your platoon marches across foreign soil,
  • 00:00:59.010 --> 00:01:02.170
  • toward the next exchange, you encounter a mine field.
  • 00:01:02.170 --> 00:01:06.250
  • The enemy is encamped all around,
  • 00:01:06.250 --> 00:01:09.070
  • and your destination is just on the other side.
  • 00:01:09.070 --> 00:01:12.210
  • The only option is straight ahead.
  • 00:01:12.210 --> 00:01:16.070
  • Immediately, the lieutenant yells the command,
  • 00:01:16.070 --> 00:01:19.120
  • take out your blindfolds and put them on.
  • 00:01:19.120 --> 00:01:22.000
  • We have a mine field to cross.
  • 00:01:22.260 --> 00:01:25.180
  • Well it doesn't seem right, does it?
  • 00:01:25.180 --> 00:01:27.190
  • Nobody in his right mind
  • 00:01:27.190 --> 00:01:29.140
  • would cross a mine field blindfolded.
  • 00:01:29.140 --> 00:01:32.290
  • Yet this is exactly what it would be like
  • 00:01:32.290 --> 00:01:35.220
  • to live through the next few years
  • 00:01:35.220 --> 00:01:38.090
  • with little or no knowledge of end time events.
  • 00:01:38.090 --> 00:01:41.130
  • Thankfully this doesn't have to be the case.
  • 00:01:41.130 --> 00:01:45.180
  • The Bible has provided us with an accurate timeline,
  • 00:01:45.180 --> 00:01:49.120
  • and explicit instructions to guide us through
  • 00:01:49.120 --> 00:01:52.220
  • the dangerous events that lie just ahead.
  • 00:01:52.220 --> 00:01:56.210
  • So we're gonna spend some time
  • 00:01:56.210 --> 00:01:58.220
  • on a seven year timeline here.
  • 00:01:58.220 --> 00:02:00.290
  • The final seven years.
  • 00:02:00.290 --> 00:02:02.180
  • You know, it is of utmost importance
  • 00:02:02.180 --> 00:02:05.010
  • that each of us understands
  • 00:02:05.010 --> 00:02:07.060
  • this final seven year timeline of events,
  • 00:02:07.060 --> 00:02:09.190
  • because our generation will undoubtedly live
  • 00:02:09.190 --> 00:02:13.090
  • during the fulfillment of these prophecies.
  • 00:02:13.090 --> 00:02:16.180
  • And in order to understand what lies ahead,
  • 00:02:16.180 --> 00:02:19.270
  • we've got to remove those imaginary blindfolds,
  • 00:02:19.270 --> 00:02:23.160
  • by learning what the Bible prophesies about the events
  • 00:02:23.160 --> 00:02:26.230
  • that will take place during that final seven years.
  • 00:02:26.230 --> 00:02:30.160
  • So let's begin by talking about the Middle East peace treaty
  • 00:02:30.160 --> 00:02:34.270
  • that marks the beginning.
  • 00:02:34.270 --> 00:02:37.020
  • Daniel 9:27 prophesies that the anti-Christ will confirm
  • 00:02:37.020 --> 00:02:41.270
  • a covenant with many, for a final seven year period.
  • 00:02:41.270 --> 00:02:46.270
  • And this accord will be a confirmation of God's covenant,
  • 00:02:48.080 --> 00:02:51.150
  • with Abraham that Israel would always have a homeland
  • 00:02:51.150 --> 00:02:55.260
  • in the Promised Land, way back in Genesis 15:18.
  • 00:02:55.260 --> 00:02:59.190
  • And the fulfillment of this prophecy will be the signing
  • 00:03:01.260 --> 00:03:05.170
  • of a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians.
  • 00:03:05.170 --> 00:03:10.000
  • And this prophesied agreement has five characteristics.
  • 00:03:10.000 --> 00:03:14.150
  • Number one, it will establish a Palestinian state in Judea,
  • 00:03:14.150 --> 00:03:19.000
  • or the modern day West Bank.
  • 00:03:19.000 --> 00:03:21.040
  • Number two, it will allow the Jewish settlers,
  • 00:03:21.040 --> 00:03:24.170
  • presently living in Judea, to remain in their homes,
  • 00:03:24.170 --> 00:03:28.180
  • living as a Jewish minority, in that new Palestinian state.
  • 00:03:28.180 --> 00:03:33.120
  • Number three, it will place the Temple Mount
  • 00:03:33.120 --> 00:03:36.010
  • under an internationally supervised sharing arrangement,
  • 00:03:36.010 --> 00:03:39.020
  • allowing both Jews and Muslims to worship there.
  • 00:03:39.020 --> 00:03:42.230
  • Number four, it's gonna allow Israel
  • 00:03:42.230 --> 00:03:45.020
  • to build her Third Temple on the Temple Mount.
  • 00:03:45.020 --> 00:03:48.060
  • And finally, Israel will retain control
  • 00:03:48.060 --> 00:03:52.170
  • over the entire city of Jerusalem,
  • 00:03:52.170 --> 00:03:55.030
  • throughout that final seven year period.
  • 00:03:55.030 --> 00:03:58.070
  • So when you see this prophesied agreement
  • 00:03:58.070 --> 00:04:01.090
  • with those characteristics, you can know assuredly
  • 00:04:01.090 --> 00:04:04.290
  • that the final seven years to the Battle of Armageddon,
  • 00:04:04.290 --> 00:04:08.040
  • and the second coming of Jesus Christ, has begun.
  • 00:04:08.040 --> 00:04:12.090
  • Now, at this point, we need to talk about
  • 00:04:12.090 --> 00:04:14.280
  • the Sixth Trumpet War.
  • 00:04:14.280 --> 00:04:16.270
  • On our timeline, a war is coming that will emanate
  • 00:04:16.270 --> 00:04:21.090
  • from the Middle East region,
  • 00:04:21.090 --> 00:04:22.240
  • from the Euphrates River region.
  • 00:04:22.240 --> 00:04:25.090
  • And it will result in the killing
  • 00:04:25.090 --> 00:04:28.150
  • of 1/3 of the world's population.
  • 00:04:28.150 --> 00:04:31.050
  • This war is called the Sixth Trumpet War,
  • 00:04:31.050 --> 00:04:34.240
  • because it will occur at the sounding of the sixth trumpet,
  • 00:04:34.240 --> 00:04:37.190
  • described in Revelation 9:13-18.
  • 00:04:37.190 --> 00:04:41.130
  • This war will take place just before, or shortly after
  • 00:04:41.130 --> 00:04:45.290
  • the peace agreement is signed.
  • 00:04:45.290 --> 00:04:48.060
  • The Bible doesn't tell us which.
  • 00:04:48.060 --> 00:04:50.100
  • However, the Bible does tell us that it must take place
  • 00:04:50.100 --> 00:04:53.270
  • prior to the final three and 1/2 years,
  • 00:04:53.270 --> 00:04:58.040
  • before the second coming of Jesus Christ
  • 00:04:58.040 --> 00:04:59.250
  • and the Battle of Armageddon.
  • 00:04:59.250 --> 00:05:01.190
  • It could conceivably happen at any time now.
  • 00:05:01.190 --> 00:05:05.260
  • In the aftermath of the Sixth Trumpet War,
  • 00:05:05.260 --> 00:05:08.190
  • in which 2.5 billion human beings will have been killed,
  • 00:05:08.190 --> 00:05:13.170
  • the cry for a global organization
  • 00:05:14.200 --> 00:05:15.270
  • that can prevent such a war will be deafening.
  • 00:05:15.270 --> 00:05:19.290
  • The international community will adopt
  • 00:05:19.290 --> 00:05:21.250
  • a world governing entity to eliminate the possiblity
  • 00:05:21.250 --> 00:05:25.190
  • of a global war ever taking place again.
  • 00:05:25.190 --> 00:05:28.260
  • The nations of the world will surrender their sovereignty
  • 00:05:28.260 --> 00:05:32.070
  • to the new world government,
  • 00:05:32.070 --> 00:05:34.040
  • so that it can eliminate war completely.
  • 00:05:34.040 --> 00:05:38.110
  • For several years, it had been generally believed
  • 00:05:38.110 --> 00:05:41.030
  • that there were two major causes for war on the earth.
  • 00:05:41.030 --> 00:05:46.030
  • Conflict between nations, and conflict between religions.
  • 00:05:47.160 --> 00:05:51.030
  • The solution was simple,
  • 00:05:51.250 --> 00:05:54.000
  • in the mind of these global leaders,
  • 00:05:54.000 --> 00:05:56.170
  • number one, it was to do away with the nation state,
  • 00:05:56.170 --> 00:05:59.160
  • and force everyone on earth
  • 00:05:59.160 --> 00:06:01.160
  • to pledge allegiance to one single
  • 00:06:01.160 --> 00:06:03.290
  • ultimate political authority, a world government.
  • 00:06:03.290 --> 00:06:07.180
  • Two, they wanted to abolish the doctrinal differences
  • 00:06:07.180 --> 00:06:12.160
  • between all religious organizations,
  • 00:06:13.180 --> 00:06:15.290
  • and coerce church leaders to sign declarations of unity,
  • 00:06:15.290 --> 00:06:20.200
  • with a single, all inclusive, religious authority,
  • 00:06:20.200 --> 00:06:24.120
  • a world religion.
  • 00:06:24.120 --> 00:06:26.020
  • Well the Bible predicts that these two entities
  • 00:06:27.080 --> 00:06:29.190
  • will be governed by a duo
  • 00:06:29.190 --> 00:06:32.110
  • of the most deceitful demonic humans that have ever lived.
  • 00:06:32.110 --> 00:06:36.240
  • To begin with, a leader will arise from Europe.
  • 00:06:36.240 --> 00:06:40.280
  • Daniel 7:8, that will have aided in the negotiations,
  • 00:06:40.280 --> 00:06:45.260
  • for the prophesied peace agreement.
  • 00:06:45.260 --> 00:06:47.260
  • He will be a great orator, and an administrator.
  • 00:06:47.260 --> 00:06:51.190
  • But with an ulterior motive in mind,
  • 00:06:51.190 --> 00:06:54.200
  • or a wolf in sheep's clothing, if you will.
  • 00:06:54.200 --> 00:06:57.290
  • And he will eventually seize the reigns of influence,
  • 00:06:57.290 --> 00:07:01.170
  • and be the most powerful politician in Europe.
  • 00:07:01.170 --> 00:07:05.250
  • From this power base he will maneuver himself into control
  • 00:07:05.250 --> 00:07:10.180
  • of the emerging world government.
  • 00:07:10.180 --> 00:07:13.020
  • At the beginning of his administration,
  • 00:07:13.020 --> 00:07:15.020
  • this ascending world leader will be viewed by many
  • 00:07:15.020 --> 00:07:19.060
  • as the next great peacemaker.
  • 00:07:19.060 --> 00:07:21.250
  • But to those who know their Bibles,
  • 00:07:21.250 --> 00:07:24.290
  • he will shortly be recognized as the anti-Christ.
  • 00:07:24.290 --> 00:07:29.070
  • Simultaneous with the emergence
  • 00:07:29.070 --> 00:07:31.060
  • of the prophesied world government
  • 00:07:31.060 --> 00:07:33.080
  • will be the birth of a global religious system.
  • 00:07:33.080 --> 00:07:37.160
  • Interfaithism, as it is already being called,
  • 00:07:37.160 --> 00:07:41.010
  • will be a union of Catholicism, and Protestantism,
  • 00:07:41.010 --> 00:07:44.260
  • under the leadership of the pope.
  • 00:07:44.260 --> 00:07:46.250
  • And this religious union will be founded
  • 00:07:46.250 --> 00:07:49.110
  • on the beliefs that Jews, Muslims, and Christians
  • 00:07:49.110 --> 00:07:53.150
  • all worship the same God, while calling him different names.
  • 00:07:53.150 --> 00:07:58.150
  • Interfaithism will attempt to embrace
  • 00:07:59.210 --> 00:08:01.170
  • really all the religions of the world,
  • 00:08:01.170 --> 00:08:04.020
  • and scripture is clear that this religious union
  • 00:08:04.020 --> 00:08:07.090
  • will be led by the pope.
  • 00:08:07.090 --> 00:08:09.220
  • Whoever is the pope at the time of the anti-Christ,
  • 00:08:09.220 --> 00:08:13.140
  • will fill the prophesied role of the false prophet.
  • 00:08:13.140 --> 00:08:17.220
  • Even Roman Catholics believe there is an evil pope coming.
  • 00:08:17.220 --> 00:08:21.040
  • (gentle music)
  • 00:08:21.040 --> 00:08:22.190
  • So, by the midway point of the final seven years,
  • 00:08:22.190 --> 00:08:26.040
  • the world government led by the anti-Christ,
  • 00:08:26.040 --> 00:08:28.290
  • and the world religion, which is mentioned
  • 00:08:28.290 --> 00:08:31.070
  • in Revelation 13:11-14, and chapters 17 and 18,
  • 00:08:31.070 --> 00:08:36.070
  • will be headed by the false prophet,
  • 00:08:38.100 --> 00:08:40.100
  • who will have control
  • 00:08:40.100 --> 00:08:41.270
  • of the majority of the world's population.
  • 00:08:41.270 --> 00:08:45.000
  • (serene music)
  • 00:08:46.180 --> 00:08:48.030
  • - [Narrator] I have left a piece of my heart in Israel

  • 00:10:41.140 --> 00:10:44.240
  • - So when the final seven years begins,
  • 00:10:47.160 --> 00:10:50.120
  • Revelation 11:1-2 states that the Temple Mount
  • 00:10:50.120 --> 00:10:54.100
  • in Jerusalem will be placed under a sharing arrangement
  • 00:10:54.100 --> 00:10:58.000
  • between Jews and Muslims.
  • 00:10:58.000 --> 00:11:00.040
  • The Jewish people will be allowed
  • 00:11:00.040 --> 00:11:01.250
  • to build their Third Temple,
  • 00:11:01.250 --> 00:11:03.290
  • that's found in 2 Thessalonians 2:4,
  • 00:11:03.290 --> 00:11:06.130
  • and Revelation 11:1-2.
  • 00:11:07.140 --> 00:11:09.260
  • They'll be able to build it on the Temple Mount.
  • 00:11:09.260 --> 00:11:12.240
  • When the temple is completed,
  • 00:11:12.240 --> 00:11:14.220
  • animal sacrifices will be resumed, Daniel 9:27,
  • 00:11:14.220 --> 00:11:19.080
  • just as was done in the Old Testament times.
  • 00:11:19.080 --> 00:11:22.260
  • The offering of animal sacrifices in the temple
  • 00:11:22.260 --> 00:11:26.050
  • is going to quickly escalate into a world crisis.
  • 00:11:26.050 --> 00:11:29.120
  • The animal rights activists will demand that the anti-Christ
  • 00:11:29.120 --> 00:11:33.100
  • stop his slaughter of animals, and this dispute
  • 00:11:33.100 --> 00:11:36.270
  • over these animal sacrifices
  • 00:11:36.270 --> 00:11:39.040
  • will quickly lead to an event the Bible calls
  • 00:11:39.040 --> 00:11:42.240
  • the Abomination of Desolation.
  • 00:11:42.240 --> 00:11:46.020
  • So the Abomination of Desolation occurs
  • 00:11:46.020 --> 00:11:48.180
  • at the halfway point of the final seven years.
  • 00:11:48.180 --> 00:11:51.280
  • Once we reach the middle of that final seven year period,
  • 00:11:51.280 --> 00:11:55.190
  • prophetic fulfillments will rapidly increase,
  • 00:11:55.190 --> 00:11:59.090
  • with many events happening almost simultaneously.
  • 00:11:59.090 --> 00:12:03.000
  • The first of these events will be
  • 00:12:03.000 --> 00:12:04.240
  • the stopping of the sacrifices,
  • 00:12:04.240 --> 00:12:07.080
  • at the Abomination of Desolation.
  • 00:12:07.080 --> 00:12:09.230
  • Daniel 11:31 foretells this event.
  • 00:12:09.230 --> 00:12:12.160
  • It says: And arms shall stand on his part,
  • 00:12:12.160 --> 00:12:16.110
  • and they, the anti-Christ and his partners,
  • 00:12:16.110 --> 00:12:19.250
  • shall pollute the sanctuary of strength,
  • 00:12:19.250 --> 00:12:22.130
  • and shall take away the daily sacrifice,
  • 00:12:22.130 --> 00:12:25.120
  • and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate.
  • 00:12:25.120 --> 00:12:30.010
  • According to 2 Thessalonians 2:4,
  • 00:12:30.010 --> 00:12:34.120
  • the Abomination of Desolation is when the anti-Christ
  • 00:12:34.120 --> 00:12:38.220
  • will stand in the rebuilt Jewish temple,
  • 00:12:38.220 --> 00:12:41.240
  • claiming to be God.
  • 00:12:41.240 --> 00:12:43.090
  • And it should also be mentioned here
  • 00:12:44.150 --> 00:12:46.150
  • that whoever is pope at the time
  • 00:12:46.150 --> 00:12:49.050
  • of the Abomination of Desolation occurs,
  • 00:12:49.050 --> 00:12:51.210
  • he will assume the role as the false prophet.
  • 00:12:51.210 --> 00:12:55.000
  • He will be the leader of the world religious system,
  • 00:12:55.000 --> 00:12:57.250
  • and will perform miracles before the people of the world.
  • 00:12:57.250 --> 00:13:01.230
  • That's mentioned in Revelation 13:13-14.
  • 00:13:01.230 --> 00:13:05.230
  • And he's going to influence the world
  • 00:13:05.230 --> 00:13:08.110
  • to pledge its allegiance to the anti-Christ.
  • 00:13:08.110 --> 00:13:11.270
  • This is also when the Great Tribulation begins.
  • 00:13:13.090 --> 00:13:16.120
  • I mean, simultaneous with the Abomination of Desolation,
  • 00:13:16.120 --> 00:13:20.100
  • there will be a war in heaven, Daniel 12:1,
  • 00:13:20.100 --> 00:13:24.200
  • and Revelation 12:7-10.
  • 00:13:24.200 --> 00:13:28.120
  • Michael and his archangels will defeat Satan and his angels,
  • 00:13:28.120 --> 00:13:33.090
  • confining them to the earth.
  • 00:13:33.090 --> 00:13:35.190
  • Revelation 12:12 says: Woe to the inhabiters of the earth
  • 00:13:35.190 --> 00:13:39.260
  • and of the sea, for the devil is come down unto you,
  • 00:13:39.260 --> 00:13:43.030
  • having great wrath, because he knoweth
  • 00:13:43.030 --> 00:13:46.240
  • that he hath but a short time.
  • 00:13:46.240 --> 00:13:49.070
  • So this is the beginning of the three and 1/2 years
  • 00:13:49.070 --> 00:13:53.020
  • of tribulation, when Satan will persecute Israel,
  • 00:13:53.020 --> 00:13:57.140
  • and the true church of Jesus Christ.
  • 00:13:57.140 --> 00:13:59.240
  • This is the same tribulation period
  • 00:13:59.240 --> 00:14:02.130
  • that Jesus spoke of in Matthew 24:15-21.
  • 00:14:02.130 --> 00:14:07.110
  • So once this Abomination of Desolation occurs,
  • 00:14:09.160 --> 00:14:12.260
  • Jesus warned the Jews living in Judea,
  • 00:14:12.260 --> 00:14:15.150
  • or the modern day West Bank,
  • 00:14:15.150 --> 00:14:17.140
  • to flee into the mountains, why?
  • 00:14:17.140 --> 00:14:21.110
  • Because verse 21 of Matthew 24:
  • 00:14:21.110 --> 00:14:23.270
  • For then shall be great tribulation,
  • 00:14:23.270 --> 00:14:25.270
  • such as was not since the beginning of the world,
  • 00:14:25.270 --> 00:14:28.160
  • to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
  • 00:14:28.160 --> 00:14:31.160
  • So in the midst of all this chaos,
  • 00:14:32.220 --> 00:14:36.050
  • God is going to send his two witnesses,
  • 00:14:36.050 --> 00:14:39.000
  • Revelation 11:3, and they will begin their ministries,
  • 00:14:39.000 --> 00:14:43.270
  • which is going to last the next 1.260 days.
  • 00:14:43.270 --> 00:14:47.250
  • Or the final three and 1/2 years.
  • 00:14:47.250 --> 00:14:50.090
  • Now let's talk about this last three and 1/2 years
  • 00:14:51.220 --> 00:14:54.100
  • of the final seven.
  • 00:14:54.100 --> 00:14:56.060
  • During that last half of the those final seven years,
  • 00:14:56.060 --> 00:14:58.240
  • many events will occur.
  • 00:14:58.240 --> 00:15:00.220
  • Setting the stage for the Battle of Armageddon,
  • 00:15:00.220 --> 00:15:03.210
  • and the second coming of Jesus Christ.
  • 00:15:03.210 --> 00:15:05.200
  • And it's at this time that the anti-Christ
  • 00:15:05.200 --> 00:15:09.050
  • and the false prophet will fully implement
  • 00:15:09.050 --> 00:15:12.060
  • the economic system known as the mark of the beast.
  • 00:15:12.060 --> 00:15:15.210
  • You all know it's mentioned in Revelation 13:16-18.
  • 00:15:15.210 --> 00:15:20.170
  • Economic control will be used
  • 00:15:20.170 --> 00:15:22.270
  • to force the citizens of the world
  • 00:15:22.270 --> 00:15:25.040
  • to comply with the dictates of the one world government,
  • 00:15:25.040 --> 00:15:28.180
  • and the one world religion.
  • 00:15:28.180 --> 00:15:30.140
  • The plan will be to give everyone on earth
  • 00:15:30.140 --> 00:15:32.280
  • his own unique identification number,
  • 00:15:32.280 --> 00:15:35.170
  • that will, it's gonna be necessary really,
  • 00:15:35.170 --> 00:15:37.270
  • to function in society.
  • 00:15:37.270 --> 00:15:39.280
  • If any individual does not submit,
  • 00:15:39.280 --> 00:15:43.010
  • and obey, and pledge allegiance to the anti-Christ,
  • 00:15:43.010 --> 00:15:46.040
  • and his supreme authority,
  • 00:15:46.040 --> 00:15:48.280
  • that person's number will be invalidated.
  • 00:15:48.280 --> 00:15:51.230
  • And he will not be permitted to hold a job,
  • 00:15:51.230 --> 00:15:54.040
  • or to participate in the global economy.
  • 00:15:54.040 --> 00:15:57.250
  • All the while, God's two witnesses,
  • 00:15:59.020 --> 00:16:01.230
  • Revelation 11:3-12, they're gonna be prophesying,
  • 00:16:01.230 --> 00:16:06.180
  • performing miracles, smiting the earth with plagues.
  • 00:16:06.180 --> 00:16:10.240
  • However, at the end of their ministries,
  • 00:16:10.240 --> 00:16:13.180
  • the anti-Christ and his world governing system
  • 00:16:13.180 --> 00:16:17.000
  • is going to kill them.
  • 00:16:17.000 --> 00:16:19.010
  • Their bodies will lie in the streets of Jerusalem,
  • 00:16:19.010 --> 00:16:22.140
  • for three and 1/2 days.
  • 00:16:22.140 --> 00:16:24.280
  • While all this time, the international media broadcast
  • 00:16:24.280 --> 00:16:29.040
  • the entire incident to the world.
  • 00:16:29.040 --> 00:16:31.130
  • After the three and 1/2 days are finished,
  • 00:16:32.180 --> 00:16:35.010
  • the Lord will raise them from the dead,
  • 00:16:35.010 --> 00:16:37.160
  • and call them up to heaven,
  • 00:16:37.160 --> 00:16:40.000
  • while the whole world watches in amazement.
  • 00:16:40.000 --> 00:16:42.150
  • Well this brings us to the end of the final seven years.
  • 00:16:43.270 --> 00:16:47.220
  • And at the end of this seven year period,
  • 00:16:47.220 --> 00:16:50.060
  • two of the most recognizable prophecies
  • 00:16:50.060 --> 00:16:52.250
  • in the Bible will take place.
  • 00:16:52.250 --> 00:16:56.000
  • The Battle of Armageddon,
  • 00:16:56.000 --> 00:16:57.090
  • and the second coming of Jesus Christ.
  • 00:16:57.090 --> 00:16:59.200
  • And you know, it's quite similar
  • 00:16:59.200 --> 00:17:01.150
  • to Charles Dickens' statement in his book,
  • 00:17:01.150 --> 00:17:04.130
  • "A Tale of Two Cities".
  • 00:17:04.130 --> 00:17:06.000
  • This will be the best of times for some,
  • 00:17:06.000 --> 00:17:09.040
  • but it's gonna be the worst of times for others.
  • 00:17:09.040 --> 00:17:12.200
  • Surrounding these two prophecies
  • 00:17:12.200 --> 00:17:14.120
  • will be quite a number of significant events,
  • 00:17:14.120 --> 00:17:17.110
  • all leading to the culmination of this age,
  • 00:17:17.110 --> 00:17:20.270
  • and the beginning of the 1.000 year reign
  • 00:17:20.270 --> 00:17:23.250
  • of Jesus Christ on the earth.
  • 00:17:23.250 --> 00:17:25.150
  • At the very end of the Great Tribulation,
  • 00:17:26.190 --> 00:17:29.120
  • the seven vials, the plagues of the wrath of God,
  • 00:17:29.120 --> 00:17:32.280
  • will be poured out.
  • 00:17:32.280 --> 00:17:34.050
  • That's Revelation 16:1-21.
  • 00:17:34.050 --> 00:17:37.180
  • The first vial is poured out upon those
  • 00:17:38.220 --> 00:17:40.120
  • who receive the mark of the beast,
  • 00:17:40.120 --> 00:17:42.030
  • during the Great Tribulation period.
  • 00:17:42.030 --> 00:17:44.250
  • When the sixth vial is poured out,
  • 00:17:44.250 --> 00:17:47.290
  • the great river Euphrates will be dried up
  • 00:17:47.290 --> 00:17:50.140
  • in preparation for the kings of the East
  • 00:17:50.140 --> 00:17:53.150
  • to make their way down toward Israel,
  • 00:17:53.150 --> 00:17:56.040
  • for the Battle of Armageddon.
  • 00:17:56.040 --> 00:17:57.180
  • Once the sixth vial is poured out, Revelation 16:15
  • 00:17:58.290 --> 00:18:03.160
  • gives a last minute warning to the inhabitants of the earth.
  • 00:18:03.160 --> 00:18:07.090
  • It says: Behold, I come as a thief.
  • 00:18:07.090 --> 00:18:09.200
  • Blessed is he that watcheth and keepeth his garments,
  • 00:18:09.200 --> 00:18:12.160
  • lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.
  • 00:18:12.160 --> 00:18:15.010
  • Then immediately after that, in verse 16,
  • 00:18:16.050 --> 00:18:19.060
  • the prophecy ominously says: And he gathered them together
  • 00:18:19.060 --> 00:18:23.130
  • into a place called, in the Hebrew tongue, Armageddon.
  • 00:18:23.130 --> 00:18:27.090
  • Now many of you have heard about
  • 00:18:28.050 --> 00:18:29.120
  • the Battle of Armageddon over the years.
  • 00:18:29.120 --> 00:18:31.150
  • The international armies of the UN
  • 00:18:31.150 --> 00:18:34.050
  • will invade Israel from the North.
  • 00:18:34.050 --> 00:18:36.160
  • The battle will be journed at the plain of Megiddo.
  • 00:18:36.160 --> 00:18:39.150
  • in Northern Israel.
  • 00:18:39.150 --> 00:18:41.070
  • Israel will fight valiantly
  • 00:18:41.070 --> 00:18:42.280
  • against the world governing armies, however,
  • 00:18:42.280 --> 00:18:46.130
  • the Israeli defense forces will fall back slowly but surely,
  • 00:18:46.130 --> 00:18:50.230
  • before the superior fire power of the world government.
  • 00:18:50.230 --> 00:18:54.110
  • The conflict is going to proceed with Israel retreating
  • 00:18:54.110 --> 00:18:58.210
  • towards its capital Jerusalem.
  • 00:18:58.210 --> 00:19:01.240
  • After days of exhausting battle,
  • 00:19:01.240 --> 00:19:04.020
  • Israel will make her last stand
  • 00:19:04.020 --> 00:19:06.090
  • within the walls of Jerusalem.
  • 00:19:06.090 --> 00:19:08.110
  • And in spite of heroic efforts by the Israeli soldiers,
  • 00:19:08.110 --> 00:19:12.160
  • the Jewish people will find themselves facing defeat
  • 00:19:12.160 --> 00:19:16.280
  • by the armies of the anti-Christ.
  • 00:19:16.280 --> 00:19:19.110
  • And it's at this time
  • 00:19:19.110 --> 00:19:21.040
  • that the seventh and last trumpet will sound.
  • 00:19:21.040 --> 00:19:24.200
  • Jesus Christ will return to gather the elect from the earth,
  • 00:19:24.200 --> 00:19:28.160
  • that's Matthew 24:29-31,
  • 00:19:28.160 --> 00:19:31.230
  • will have the marriage of the supper of the lamb,
  • 00:19:31.230 --> 00:19:34.110
  • and go with, he will go with his saints
  • 00:19:34.110 --> 00:19:37.060
  • to fight on behalf of Israel, at the Battle of Armageddon.
  • 00:19:37.060 --> 00:19:40.290
  • It's spelled out intricately in Revelation 19.
  • 00:19:40.290 --> 00:19:45.010
  • During the Battle of Armageddon,
  • 00:19:46.160 --> 00:19:48.020
  • the seventh vial will be poured out upon the earth.
  • 00:19:48.020 --> 00:19:51.040
  • This will result in great hailstones
  • 00:19:51.040 --> 00:19:54.030
  • being rained upon those armies,
  • 00:19:54.030 --> 00:19:56.040
  • that have come down to fight against Israel, at Armageddon.
  • 00:19:56.040 --> 00:20:00.110
  • Zachariah 14:14 tells us that Jesus will place his feet
  • 00:20:00.110 --> 00:20:04.240
  • on the Mount of Olives, just outside Jerusalem,
  • 00:20:04.240 --> 00:20:07.290
  • when he comes to the earth.
  • 00:20:07.290 --> 00:20:09.150
  • And when this happens, there will be a huge earthquake
  • 00:20:09.150 --> 00:20:13.070
  • that splits the Mount of Olives in two,
  • 00:20:13.070 --> 00:20:15.090
  • killing 7.000 people in the city of Jerusalem.
  • 00:20:15.090 --> 00:20:19.120
  • When Jesus touches down on the Mount of Olives,
  • 00:20:19.120 --> 00:20:22.000
  • all of Israel will rush out to meet him.
  • 00:20:22.000 --> 00:20:25.030
  • When they bow before their Messiah,
  • 00:20:25.030 --> 00:20:27.100
  • they will notice the nail scars in his hands,
  • 00:20:27.100 --> 00:20:30.140
  • and in his feet.
  • 00:20:30.140 --> 00:20:31.160
  • They will realize he is Jesus,
  • 00:20:32.150 --> 00:20:35.180
  • and he will receive him as their,
  • 00:20:35.180 --> 00:20:38.140
  • and they will receive him as their Lord and God.
  • 00:20:38.140 --> 00:20:42.270
  • That's Zachariah 12:10 and 13:6.
  • 00:20:43.270 --> 00:20:47.210
  • And scripture tells us that all of Israel
  • 00:20:48.290 --> 00:20:52.020
  • will be saved at that time.
  • 00:20:52.020 --> 00:20:53.230
  • It's Romans 11:25-26.
  • 00:20:53.230 --> 00:20:56.270
  • Well, then comes the judgements.
  • 00:20:57.240 --> 00:21:01.120
  • At the second coming of Jesus Christ,
  • 00:21:01.120 --> 00:21:03.130
  • he will appear as a loving, merciful Savior,
  • 00:21:03.130 --> 00:21:07.040
  • to those who have obeyed his word,
  • 00:21:07.040 --> 00:21:09.180
  • and allowed him to be the Lord of their lives.
  • 00:21:09.180 --> 00:21:12.190
  • But to those who did not obey his word,
  • 00:21:12.190 --> 00:21:15.220
  • and receive him as Lord, he will return
  • 00:21:15.220 --> 00:21:18.270
  • in vengeful flaming fire, to execute judgment.
  • 00:21:18.270 --> 00:21:23.150
  • True religion is God's method of saving the world.
  • 00:21:24.260 --> 00:21:28.170
  • But false religion is the most effective way
  • 00:21:28.170 --> 00:21:31.290
  • of leading people away from the truth.
  • 00:21:31.290 --> 00:21:34.240
  • That's why God devotes two entire chapters
  • 00:21:34.240 --> 00:21:38.080
  • of the book of Revelation,
  • 00:21:38.080 --> 00:21:39.290
  • detailing the horrible judgments
  • 00:21:39.290 --> 00:21:42.170
  • that God will pour out upon the false prophet,
  • 00:21:42.170 --> 00:21:45.250
  • and his false religious system.
  • 00:21:45.250 --> 00:21:48.000
  • The same global earthquake that kills 7.000 in Jerusalem
  • 00:21:49.120 --> 00:21:53.180
  • will completely destroy the City of Seven Hills, or Rome.
  • 00:21:53.180 --> 00:21:58.090
  • That's Revelation 16:19, and chapter 17:9.
  • 00:21:58.090 --> 00:22:03.100
  • And describing the destruction of Rome, in Revelation 18:8,
  • 00:22:04.240 --> 00:22:08.120
  • the scripture says: Therefore shall her plagues
  • 00:22:08.120 --> 00:22:11.060
  • come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine,
  • 00:22:11.060 --> 00:22:14.010
  • and they shall be utterly burned with fire,
  • 00:22:14.010 --> 00:22:16.240
  • for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.
  • 00:22:16.240 --> 00:22:20.240
  • And it's also at the Battle of Armgadden,
  • 00:22:20.240 --> 00:22:22.170
  • well God will tear down
  • 00:22:22.170 --> 00:22:25.000
  • the world governing system of the anti-Christ.
  • 00:22:25.000 --> 00:22:28.030
  • This is the same socialistic, godless entity
  • 00:22:28.030 --> 00:22:31.210
  • that will have implemented the mark of the beast.
  • 00:22:31.210 --> 00:22:34.030
  • And cause so many to turn from God,
  • 00:22:34.030 --> 00:22:37.230
  • towards a humanistic solution
  • 00:22:37.230 --> 00:22:40.090
  • to solve the problems of the world.
  • 00:22:40.090 --> 00:22:43.060
  • It will be the end of human government on the earth,
  • 00:22:43.060 --> 00:22:46.060
  • and the ushering in of the kingdom of God,
  • 00:22:46.060 --> 00:22:49.080
  • mentioned in Daniel 7:9.
  • 00:22:49.080 --> 00:22:51.110
  • And because of their iniquities, and deceitfulness,
  • 00:22:52.200 --> 00:22:56.130
  • the leader of the world government, the anti-Christ,
  • 00:22:56.130 --> 00:22:59.080
  • and the head of the global religious system,
  • 00:22:59.080 --> 00:23:01.230
  • the false prophet, will both be cast into the lake of fire.
  • 00:23:01.230 --> 00:23:06.220
  • That's Revelation 19:20.
  • 00:23:06.220 --> 00:23:08.240
  • It records the event, and says: And the beast,
  • 00:23:08.240 --> 00:23:12.000
  • the anti-Christ, was taken, and with him the false prophet
  • 00:23:12.000 --> 00:23:15.250
  • that wrought miracles before him,
  • 00:23:15.250 --> 00:23:18.120
  • with which he deceived them
  • 00:23:18.120 --> 00:23:19.240
  • that had received the mark of the beast,
  • 00:23:19.240 --> 00:23:22.070
  • and them that worshiped his image.
  • 00:23:22.070 --> 00:23:24.150
  • And these both were cast alive into the lake of fire,
  • 00:23:24.150 --> 00:23:28.190
  • burning with brimstone.
  • 00:23:28.190 --> 00:23:31.040
  • Finally, Satan is bound for the next 1.000 years.
  • 00:23:31.040 --> 00:23:34.260
  • Revelation 22 says: And he laid hold on the dragon,
  • 00:23:34.260 --> 00:23:39.260
  • that old serpent, which is the devil, and Satan,
  • 00:23:41.020 --> 00:23:42.150
  • and bound him 1.000 years.
  • 00:23:42.150 --> 00:23:45.290
  • Well of course, what we've all been looking for,
  • 00:23:47.110 --> 00:23:50.060
  • then comes the kingdom of God.
  • 00:23:50.060 --> 00:23:52.130
  • At the battle of Armageddon,
  • 00:23:53.120 --> 00:23:55.040
  • the Lord will eliminate human governments here on the earth.
  • 00:23:55.040 --> 00:23:58.270
  • He will set up his government, the kingdom of God,
  • 00:23:58.270 --> 00:24:02.180
  • which will reign supreme on the earth,
  • 00:24:02.180 --> 00:24:05.000
  • for the next 1.000 years.
  • 00:24:05.000 --> 00:24:07.090
  • Revelation 11:15 foretells this event.
  • 00:24:07.090 --> 00:24:11.040
  • It says: And the seventh angel sounded,
  • 00:24:11.040 --> 00:24:13.280
  • and there were great voices in heaven,
  • 00:24:13.280 --> 00:24:15.230
  • saying, "The kingdoms of this world are become
  • 00:24:15.230 --> 00:24:18.140
  • "the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ,
  • 00:24:18.140 --> 00:24:21.090
  • "and he shall reign forever and ever."
  • 00:24:21.090 --> 00:24:24.050
  • It will be perfect peace on earth, for the next 1.000 years.
  • 00:24:24.050 --> 00:24:29.020
  • The saints will rule and reign with the Lord,
  • 00:24:29.020 --> 00:24:31.270
  • in this kingdom, and it will be governed
  • 00:24:31.270 --> 00:24:35.040
  • according to biblical principles.
  • 00:24:35.040 --> 00:24:38.090
  • So the question remains, how can we prepare?
  • 00:24:38.090 --> 00:24:43.010
  • Well, understanding the prophetic events
  • 00:24:43.010 --> 00:24:45.110
  • that will occur over the next several years,
  • 00:24:45.110 --> 00:24:48.060
  • is only part of the equation.
  • 00:24:48.060 --> 00:24:50.240
  • 1 Chronicles 12:32 tells us that:
  • 00:24:50.240 --> 00:24:54.060
  • And of the children of Issachar,
  • 00:24:54.060 --> 00:24:56.130
  • which were men who had understanding of the times,
  • 00:24:56.130 --> 00:25:00.110
  • to know what Israel ought to do.
  • 00:25:00.110 --> 00:25:02.200
  • Spiritual preparedness is
  • 00:25:02.200 --> 00:25:05.050
  • the most important absolute necessity.
  • 00:25:05.050 --> 00:25:08.060
  • Matthew 6:31-33 clearly tells us how to prepare.
  • 00:25:08.060 --> 00:25:13.040
  • Therefore, take no thought, saying what shall we eat?
  • 00:25:14.170 --> 00:25:16.280
  • What shall we drink, or wherewithall shall we be clothed?
  • 00:25:16.280 --> 00:25:20.230
  • But seek ye first the kingdom of God,
  • 00:25:20.230 --> 00:25:23.000
  • and his righteousness, and all these things
  • 00:25:23.000 --> 00:25:25.200
  • will be added unto you. (dramatic music)
  • 00:25:25.200 --> 00:25:27.220

  • 00:25:27.220 --> 00:25:31.230
  • for future events, and the second coming of Jesus Christ,
  • 00:25:31.230 --> 00:25:35.260
  • is to be born again.
  • 00:25:35.260 --> 00:25:37.220
