Sign no. 1 The rapidly forming world Church

On October 13 2006 Muslim scholars and Islamic authorities from around the world sent an open letter to the Pope. The letter was entitled, “A Common Word between Us and You”. It opened as follows;

“Muslims and Christians together make up well over half of the world’s population. Without peace and justice between these two religious communities, there can be no meaningful peace in the world. The future of the world depends on peace between Muslims and Christians.

The basis for this peace and understanding already exists. It is part of the very foundational principles of both faiths: love of the One God, and love of the neighbour. These principles are found over and over again in the sacred texts of Islam and Christianity. The Unity of God, the necessity of love for Him, and the necessity of love of the neighbour is thus the common ground between Islam and Christianity.”

Presto! Islam and Christianity are joined together, with enough in common to unite the world in peace and prosperity. This would be a one world religion, with an understanding that although we do not totally agree, the differences are not important.

Since that time 299 leading Muslim leaders and Scholars have signed this document.

300 Christian leaders and groups have responded positively to this initiative. The list of Christian leaders and organizations who have responded reads like who’s who in Christianity. The National council of Churches, World Alliance of Reformed Churches, the World Evangelical Alliance, the Mennonite Church, the Presbyterian Church USA, Rick Warren and Bill Hybels to name only a few. Along with this group are the Pope and a host of Catholic bishops and leaders.

Jewish leaders have likewise signed on, including the Chief Rabbi of Israel.

Those who understand the prophetic scriptures cannot but help realize that this is the Harlot Church of Revelation 17, in its formative stages.

The whole purpose is to join all religions together with government to bring peace, prosperity and happiness to the world. Rick Warren’s one billion man peace movement fits in well with this agenda.

It is heart rending to see so many Evangelicals who are reaping the final fruit of New Evangelicalism.

A 2000 year old prophetic scenario is falling perfectly into place.

Sign no. 2 The looming world government

2000 years ago John the Apostle foretold of a last days one world government (Rev. 13:7). Today we see the world in desperate financial straits, the world’s leaders are crying out for global control of the world’s financial system. For years leaders have been promoting one world government, now the conditions are right for its implementation. Perhaps another crisis or two will finish off the drive, a nuclear exchange or an out of control war in the mid-east.

We know from Revelation that the one world government will not come together until the mid-tribulation point. The stage is now being set to bring it about. Another 2000 year old prophetic scenario is falling into place.

Sign no.3 The revived roman empire

Today the E.U. states very emphatically that it is the Revived Roman Empire, actually the E.U. is the embryonic form of the Revived Roman Empire which will not come into being until the antichrist comes to assume his leadership. The 10 toes of Daniels vision represented the R.R.E., they were said to be Iron mixed with clay (pottery) and that they did not adhere. For over 50 years the E.U. has had no unity, now they are planning to choose a powerful leader who can force unity on them. This is the office of antichrist which is about to come into being. Can the antichrist be far behind? One seeming problem is that the E.U. now involves 27 countries; Daniel’s vision states there are to be ten kingdoms. The E.U. has revealed plans to divide the 27 countries into economic zones, the purpose is to break down national loyalties and build unity. Though they have not specified the number ten, it is a real possibility.

The E.U. is quickly rising to its foretold place of world domination. The latest World Bank report states that the E.U. has a GDP of 13.5 trillion dollars, surpassing the U.S. GDP of 12.4 and the Euro has now surpassed the U.S. dollar in currency circulation.

What Daniel prophesied 2500 years ago is now falling into place.

Sign no.4 The push for the peace treaty

For much of my lifetime the world’s leaders have spared no effort to bring a peace treaty to the mid-east. Such a peace agreement has totally defied them, the closer they get to it the farther away it becomes. All the nations of the world are pressuring Israel to give up the land God has promised to them in hope of a peace treaty. The world has not established peace in the mid-east; the world cannot have a peace treaty; the world will not have a peace treaty until God’s time comes, then antichrist will come on the scene and sign a peace treaty which will bring a false peace. It would seem that the appearance of antichrist cannot be far off as the pressure builds to do what Daniel 2500 years ago, said would happen. Another prophetic scenario is playing out before our very eyes.

Sign no.5 Demise of america

Bible scholars have long stated that America has no part to play in the last days prophetic scenario. The truth is, that at this point America is both militarily and economically that the last days scenario cannot play out. It seems to follow, that America will somehow be neutralized prior to the tribulation period. We are now seeing warning signs that America is in serious trouble. We have always been pro-American, but America like Canada has turned away from God and His Word. We have slaughtered 50 million babies in their mother’s wombs. These are children whom God has intricately designed and called into being. The voice of their blood cries out to God from the ground. We have denied even the existence of God and that he created the heavens and the earth. Idolatry, immorality and materialism have overwhelmed our very souls. Now the shadow of God’s judgment is falling upon us.

Joel 3:2 tells of judgment upon all of the nations of the world for dividing Israel’s land and giving a portion to the gentiles. It would that appear America’s judgment will come prior to the tribulation period, while the other nations will be judged at the close in the battle of Armageddon. We are living in an hour when the prophetic end time scenario is leaping out at us from all sides. Look up and listen up, we are soon to go home!

Sign no.6 The formation of the alliance for the war of Ezekiel 38 & 39

Ezekiel foretold 2600 years ago of an attack on Israel in the early days of the tribulation period. He named the nations to be involved, Russia, Persia (Iran), Ethiopia, Libya, Turkey and the nations surrounding Israel. Today we are witnessing that prophecy about to come to pass. The president of Iran has been calling for the destruction of Israel; he is calling for an alliance of nations to come against Israel and annihilate her. We are actually seeing this alliance now come together. Ezekiel said that Russia would lead this alliance and that is what is taking place.

Ahmadinejad has stated that Israel will be destroyed in “one storm”. Contrast that with what Ezekiel prophesied would happen, “Thou so powerful shalt ascend and come like a storm, thou shalt be like a cloud to cover the land, thou and all thy bands, and many people with thee” Ezekiel 38:9. Do you see the comparison between what the President of Iran says he will do and what Ezekiel said would happen? We know of course, God has said that He will deliver Israel. It is absolutely amazing that the prophetic scenario that Ezekiel foretold so long ago is now about to be enacted.

God is the sovereign Lord of the universe who knows the end from the beginning and writes history thousands of years before it happens. Fulfilled prophecy proves that the Bible is the Word of God and that Word tells us that this age is about to come to an end, that Christ is soon to call His bride home to heaven.

There is an all important question: are you a part of the bride of Christ? Have you been saved by grace through faith in the shed blood of Christ. This is the greatest issue you will ever face, nothing else is of importance, “Behold now is the day of salvation”.
