Endtime Bible Prophecy Studies
In the near future we anticipate having a 10 week teaching series on Bible Prophecy and it's fulfillment in modern times. These studies will be on the Wednesday night service which begins at 7:30 PM. Pastor McNearny will be teaching these lessons which will include the popular "Understanding The Endtime" DVD movie presentation. If you would like to understand the Prophecies of the Bible like never before, then we invite you. The article below, which was taken from END TIME Magazine, should stimulate your interest:
"Proof, This is the Endtime"
Many have stated that is impossible to know whether or not we are living in the last days before the second coming of Jesus Christ. However, below you will find dramatic proof that these are the last times. All of the proofs below taken together defy coincidence.
1. EUPHRATES RIVER TO BE DRIED UP: In Revelation 16:12, the Bible predicts that the Euphrates River will be dried up to prepare the way for the kings of the east to invade Israel. This will happen at the time of the battle of Armageddon according to verse 16 of the same chapter. The battle of Armageddon will be the final battle at which time Jesus Christ will return and fight on the side of the nation of Israel. Immediately, thereafter He will establish His kingdom and usher in His 1000-year reign of peace. On January 13th, 1990 the Indianapolis Star carried the headline- "Turkey will cut off flow of Euphrates for 1 month." The article stated that a huge reservoir had been built by Turkey. While filling up the reservoir, the flow of the Euphrates would be stopped for one month and a concrete plug for a diversion channel built. These things have now been done With this newly built dam, Turkey has the ability to stop the Euphrates River at will. The conditions for fulfilling this 1900 year old prophecy are now in place!
2. CHINA GOES TO WAR: In Revelation 9:15-16, the Bible prophesies that an army of 200 million soldiers will launch a war which will kill "the third part of men". Never in the history of the world, until our present generation, has there been a power on earth that could field 200 million soldiers. However, the late ruler of China, Mao-Tsetung boasted in his diary that he could field an army of 200 million soldiers. We see that this prophecy pertaining to the very last times could not ever have been fulfilled until now.
3. WORLDWIDE NUMBERING SYSTEM PREDICTED: In Revelation chapter 13, the Bible prophesies that a world dictator will soon rule over a world government. He will cause all people on the earth to receive a number without which they will be unable to buy or sell. We are seeing this prophecy fulfilled before our very eyes in a most astonishing way. Nearly every human being in the world now has been assigned a number. In America it is our social security number. In the last few years we have seen this number extended to small children. A child without a social security number cannot be declared as a dependent on an income tax return. We have seen the emergence of electronic money, shopping with credit cards, and many people are urging the abolishment of cash. All of these things could not possibly have been fulfilled until this present time. Only after the invention of the computer could such a worldwide numbering system be administered.
4. THE EMERGENCE OF A NEW WORLD ORDER: Revelation 13:7 and Daniel 7:23 prophesy the establishment of a world government. We recently have seen the term "new world order" being used by the leading political people of our world. Mikhail Gorbachev has made the term famous, and Pope John Paul II has referred to it repeatedly. Finally our former President, George Bush, in the Chicago Tribune, September 19, 1990, said "Iraq is the first test for the new world order." He stated emphatically that the Iraq War is Saddam Hussein against the world. The United Nations troops are continually referred to as the Multinational forces. The decision has been made to establish an interdependent community of nations that will rule the world under United Nations authority. The Bible says that this will lead us into a great world government. We can see this happening right before our eyes.
COINCIDENCE OR DIVINE PROVIDENCE:
The Euphrates River can be dried up, the necessary 200 million man army is available, a worldwide numbering system is possible because of the computer, and now the new world order is appearing.
It is coincidental that all of these major prophecies pertaining to the last time are being fulfilled simultaneously!
