King Nebuchadnezzar had a dream about the day and age we live in. The historical record of this in the Bible tells us we are living in the time of the last empire. We are witnessing the final kingdom prophesied to be the dominant world power when Christ returns. This was foretold in the Book of Daniel, chapter 2 when the King of Babylon had a dream he could not remember. Daniel received from God both the details of the dream and its meaning. Daniel’s prescient dream interpretation states the following:
This image’s head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass, his legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay. You watched till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces. Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshing floors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth (vs 32-36).
Have you ever had a powerful dream but you could not remember it? Then you know how frustrating this can be. In the above passage Daniel was given insight into King Nebuchadnezzar’s forgotten dream. Not only that, but Daniel was shown the details without ever being told what the dream was. He goes on to tell King “Neb” that the 5 different metals contained in this statue he dreamed of represent 5 different empires. The golden head represents the Babylonian Empire, the silver part (chest and arms) represents the Persia-Mede empire, the brass (belly and thighs) represents Alexander the Great, or the Greek empire, the iron (lower legs and ankles) represents the Roman Empire, and the broken pieces of iron mixed with clay (feet) represent a revived form of the Roman Empire. This last empire is represented by the feet of this statue, and more specifically: the 10 toes.
Note: Upon further study of Bible prophecy it becomes increasingly evident that these 10 toes correspond with the 10 horns on the head of the Beast (Revelation 17:12).
This is How it’s Going Down
Without going into all the supporting scripture verses right now, this is the way the final days of this last empire are going to play out. Europe (a revived form of the Roman empire) will become the dominant world power but only after World War III takes place. This will be a war worse than any the earth has ever seen. One-third of the earth’s population will be destroyed.
Before we get into all that, let’s briefly examine the events leading up to, and culminating in, this global tragedy. It all starts (where else?) in the Middle East (ME). Russia will continue its efforts to gain more power and influence over the Arab and ME nations (e.g. Syria, Iran, Iraq, UAE, Libya, and so on). Israel is almost completely surrounded by outside hostile forces. I say “almost,” because there are some nations (e.g. Egypt, Jordan, (Dan. 11:41-45)) that have remained on peaceful terms with Israel (such as America). And these retain their sovereignty even during the reign of the Beast (but I’m getting ahead of myself).
At some point the surrounding provocations and rising tensions escalate to the level where Israel is forced to take action. Israel, being extremely vulnerable to the threat of annihilation by surrounding hostile forces, makes good on its promise to do whatever is necessary to stop Iran from getting a nuclear bomb. At first, much of this is accomplished through counter-intelligence, cyber attacks, sabotaging systems, and when absolutely necessary, surgical strikes.
Meanwhile, America and other allies speak out on behalf of, and stand with Israel, but the rage of the religious extremists, and deceitful rhetoric fostered by the fake news main stream media propaganda outlets continually incite the antisemitic world into a hate fueled frenzy. What’s worse, the most radicalized proponents of the jihad caliphate believe the sooner they move to destroy Israel the sooner the 12th Imam will arrive. He will be ushered in, through violent takeover, they believe, to bring their long awaited millennial reign.
Aside from all these religious extremist catalysts, there are many socio-economic motivators going down. The factors contributing to this decision to strike at Israel are manifold.
Note: One thing we know for certain from the Bible: God will put hooks in their jaws and drag them into attacking Israel. Whether you take this an active or passive act on God’s part, the end result will be He will show Himself to be Israel’s Savior. How will this be accomplished in the natural?
While much of the world’s oil supply remains in ME control, there are augmented economic factors (imposed sanctions and the like) keeping them from charging the prices they want to finance their eventual global domination. Russia controls much of the oil industry in that region. Europe is now turning away from OPEC (Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries) to buy oil from America at much better prices.
Israel, of course, finds herself right smack dab in the middle of conflict. Her strategic defense systems (e.g. the iron dome), built up to protect her from incoming rockets from hostile nations, are superior to her rivals. But now she has yet one more huge threat in China. How this small piece of real estate (about the size of New Jersey), and her capitol Jerusalem, can be the most hotly contested property on the planet, is proof positive that this is a spiritual battle. What happens next will change the entire paradigm of planet earth.
Without getting into all the gory details, the ensuing war results in over 2 billion people being wiped off the face of the map. Mostly people in the surrounding Arab nations, but many in China and Russia are destroyed in the exchange. Somehow, miraculously, Israel is not destroyed. Many are saying it is an act of Almighty God. There is no other possible explanation.
By now, though, there is widespread panic among all the nations of the earth. The rest of the surrounding landscape is devastation. It defies description. With the increase in disease and pestilence, there are continued random acts of terrorism and related carnage. There is a drastic increase in natural disasters. Seismic reverberations continue to shudder the planet across Northern India, Eurasia and all around the ME. These continue to increase in magnitude, frequency, and duration, coming from deep within the earth, until the inevitable happens…
The mother of all earthquakes hits, and hits hard. Seismologists remark that the impact is off the richter scale. Nuclear power plants start spewing out radioactive waste, gas lines are ruptured and catch fire, entire cities are engulfed in flames. A state of international emergency is declared.
We’re Not in Kansas Anymore
By now, the landscape of our planet has shifted so dramatically that the mindset of the earth’s inhabitants is one of complete desperation. Then, as if in answer to the cries of the nations, a leader rises up out of the European Common Market. Many of the solutions presented would be unthinkable a decade ago, but desperate times call for desperate measures. Not the least of which is this new world leader’s call for the harvesting of living humans for biological engineering purposes, all for the greater good.
The sustainable maintenance of those elitist beings deemed worthy to continue living has become the order of the day. The appointment of survivors (the elites) implemented by this new leader, as well as the selection of those who must give their lives for the ultimate solution is carried out by social media driven algorithms. All who refuse to go along with the rhythm and reject the notion of a one true God (declared to be a racist, exclusive, and antiquated belief), and all those who continue to reject pledging allegiance to this new world leader and deny the chosen of humanity’s survival in the universe, are immediately scheduled for the ultimate solution camps.
This is where they are slated to be used for human guinea pigs, spare parts, scientific study, and biogenetics. The latter, being the science of bio-engineered organs, body parts, and DNA replication. Everything from cell tissue reconstitution, stem cell research, experimentation, to complete cosmetic makeovers, takes place here.
The law for the good of all, as it is commonly referred to, is even sanctioned by the state church. The Church of Human Divinity claims as its true deity the human collective unconscious, and proclaims the new world leader as the true savior of humankind. Modern medical miracles of biological engineering and technology are performed here. Simultaneously, there are other wonders seen in the skies, strange UFO like appearances, and holographic imagery broadcasts worldwide.
Eventually, this world leader, who, by now as I’m sure you’ve guessed, is none-other-than the Beast, is given power over the 10 kings of Europe and the Mediterranean. At a certain point he reunites all of the land mass of made up of Iraq, parts of Turkey, and Iran, and renames them as Persia, under one king. He hates that he does not have total control over all regions such as Israel, Egypt and Jordan. They continue to war against the new world leader known as the Beast. America and parts of Canada and South America are not fully surrendered to his control. These areas of resistance enrage him but he has a diabolical plan remedy this.
He conspires to make a pact with Israel to give them access to rebuild the temple and do animal sacrifice, if they will give him unrestricted access to Jerusalem, and its temple. Currently he has taken control of many parts of Israel by force and holds only half of Jerusalem. Many believe he is the 12th Imam, the Jewish Messiah, and/or “God” incarnate. Some believe he will break his truce eventually. This animal sacrifice practice only continues for a short period of time. The animal rights activists complain so much that the sacrifices are soon discontinued.
Disclaimer: The foregoing is not to be taken verbatim as the way things will specifically play out. It is just a dramatized timeline of events that could possibly fit the Biblical narrative.
Antichrist, or the Beast, will not come under the guise of religion, he will use religion (the great harlot) and then kill her when he’s done with her. He will not speak of God much, except to blaspheme. Conversely, he will come saying anyone who is of any of those One-God religions is exclusive and they must convert to believe only in the science behind all religions, including satanism and atheism. All One-God religions will be condemned as divisive, and the cause of all the world’s problems. He will deceive many at first with his accomplice, a self-proclaimed prophet, one who performs all manner of lying signs and wonders. A little while later he will proclaim the Jerusalem temple as his headquarters, and declare himself to be God Almighty. At that time he will perform the unthinkable as a sacrifice to himself. At this point many of those who believed he was the Jewish Messiah will know he is a fraud (this is what’s referred to by Daniel (and Jesus) as the abomination of desolation.
Important Public Announcement
To all those remaining on earth at this time: to follow the antichrist you will have to take the number, which will be accompanied by a pledge to deny God, and swear allegiance to the antichrist, and take his mark. This will, no doubt, be some type of ceremony to swear allegiance to Satan, and vow to worship him. The only way to go to hell, or to have your name blotted out of the Lamb’s Book of Life, is to blaspheme the Holy Spirit. This is the sin warned about in the Bible, the only one that can send you to hell, a sin carried all the way to death. It will have to be something that is ongoing, and not just a one time occurrence or act. The sin unto death, as it is called, is a willful rejection of Christ, or blasphemy of the Holy Spirit (refusing to recognize Him). The sin unto death is a continual pushing away of the Spirit’s conviction of our need to believe on Christ. No one goes to hell inadvertently. No one says, “whoops how did I end up here?!” No one will be able to accuse God, when they stand before Him on Judgement Day, of not giving them a chance to hear and believe.
“They have Moses and the prophets, if they don’t believe them, they will not believe though one were to come back from the dead and warn them.” -Abraham (to the rich man in hell) in Jesus’s story about Lazarus and the rich man.
There is one escape from this strong delusion that will come over the inhabitants of the earth. Believe the Gospel (the Good News) about Jesus and take Him as your Lord and Savior. When you become a child of God through Jesus you are saved. God will catch away His church out of the earth before antichrist comes into power, most likely sometime after World War III, after the temple is built and before the abomination of desolation. There in heaven with Jesus we will witness all these things happening on earth. We will be partying at the Marriage Feast of the Lamb, as this time of God’s wrath upon the disobedient nations. When is accomplished the time of Jacob’s Trouble upon all those who refuse to change their wicked ways. After which we will return with Jesus to set up His kingdom empire (the stone hewn from the mountain without hands) here on earth for the true millennium, the one thousand year reign of Christ.
Do you believe the Bible’s account of this End Time scenario? Do you want to escape this terrible time of times? If so then pray this prayer with me:
Dear Lord Jesus, come into my heart and be my Lord and Savior. Wash away my sins, come live in and through me by Your Holy Spirit. Lead me continually to live for You and be led by You. Give me Your promise of eternal life, starting here on earth, and continuing with You in heaven forever. Amen.
If you prayed that prayer and meant it with all your heart you, my friend, are saved! Jesus will make your heart His home as you continue to follow Him through His Word (the Bible). Pray and ask Him to lead you every day and get involved with a good Bible-believing church. God promises He will save you from the wrath to come in the end times.
