The End Times Are Upon Us: A Terrifying Armageddon Lies Ahead

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


We have lived to see the most dramatic social, political, and economic advances of any century in history. The 1900s began with a limited use of electricity – without radio, television, planes, and missiles; without electronic computers, modern weapons, and atomic bombs. Technology has now moved man into a modern era, which witnesses more change in the course of a year than formerly took place in a century.

Gigantic manufacturing complexes have arisen. Millions of people have moved from the rural areas to the city. Modern travel has shrunk the world so that everyone is everyone else’s neighbor.

Luxuries, comforts, and pleasure unknown in previous generations have become commonplace. The electronic media has brought wars and disasters, world leaders and propagandists directly into our living rooms. Television transmission via satellite now makes it possible for the entire world to experience swiftly changing events simultaneously.

The shock of rapid change in turn has produced family and social crises, tension between nations, fear of atomic war, and struggle for survival in the world threatened by pollution, starvation, and moral disintegration. The rapidly increasing tempo of change in modern life has given the entire world the sense of impending crisis.

Civilization is moving at a rapidly acceleration rate like a gigantic machine which will ultimately tear itself apart. How long can a world exist with atomic bombs unused? With increasing population and decreasing food supply? With growing moral degeneracy threatening to destroy our civilization? How long can world tensions be kept in check? How long can a world struggling for survival be kept from a bloodbath?

The ingenuity of man has devised means of human destruction, which would seem incredible to a previous generation. The world is moving toward a gigantic crisis. Can it be that the prophets of doom are right? Is the world racing toward Armageddon, a divine judgment on a wicked world – the end of human history?

Prophecy has never been the sole domain of astrologers, mystics, and crystal ball gazers. For centuries, Christians have considered the message of true prophets to be God’s revelation of His plan for human history. The Old Testament records the lives and works of many great prophets – Moses, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Daniel, Micah, and others. These men predicted future events in vivid detail, including the rise and fall of every major world empire, which left its mark on the Middle East. Some of their predictions came true within their lifetimes, and many of their astounding predictions seem to be coming to pass today.

Jesus Himself assumed the role of a prophet as He quoted from Moses, Isaiah, Daniel, Jeremiah, and Micah – many times adding interpretive comments and detailed predictions of His own. His words have been confirmed by the test of time. Jesus’ prediction of the fall of Jerusalem in Luke 21 is so vivid that the early church in Jerusalem was able to escape almost certain destruction by fleeing the city before Titus destroyed it in AD 70.

As it was then, even so it is today. Crucial predictions about Jerusalem and the nation of Israel are, in fact, necessary to understand the carefully predicted chain of events, which will mark the last days of our civilization. Jesus predicted the persecution of the church, the fall of Jerusalem with the destruction of the Temple, the shattering and scattering of the Jews to all the nations of the world, and He predicted the amazing survival and growth of churches. Along with the Old Testament prophets, He saw a time with Israel would be re-established as a nation. All this has been realized in history.

However, He also warned those who understood the Old Testament prophets to watch Jerusalem and the Middle East for signs of the approaching end of world civilization, the end of the times of the Gentiles. Jesus said that the Jews…shall fall be the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled” (Luke 21:24).

The Jewish people are now back in the land. Jerusalem, the city of dispute or negotiation, was won in 1967 only to become the object of a diplomatic tug-of-war. What is the future of the holy city? If the times of the Gentiles are, in fact, nearing an end, what will happen next? Is there a sure word about tomorrow? Is it a word of hope or a word of doom? People are asking questions today about the future as never before, and they are solemn questions, and they are searching questions. Only the Bible has clear answers. For this reason, biblical prophecy is being probed for clues today as to where we are in God’s program and what great events may be shortly coming to pass.

Prophecies formerly brushed aside as being incredible are now being studied again. Students of the Bible are becoming increasingly aware of a remarkable correspondence between the obvious trend of world events and what the Scripture predicted centuries ago. People in all walks of life and of all religious faiths are asking the same question: What does the future hold?

Unlike the self-proclaimed prophets of today, the prophets of the Bible did not peddle vague and general predictions that could be adjusted to any situation. The prophecies recorded in the Bible are detailed and intricately interwoven. Although interpretation of minor points may vary, the overall picture is frighteningly clear. The Bible does not simply speak of a final destructive world war, but of a series of carefully timed events on a doomsday calendar leading to Armageddon.

Armageddon has come to describe anyone’s worst fear of the end of the world. The prophets have described it more specifically as the final suicidal battle of a desperate world struggle centered in the Middle East. This is the final act in a terrifying series of events, which are very much related to today’s headlines. This final history-shattering battle will occur on schedule at a specific time and in its predicted location.

Word of the day: Prepare! And do it the old fashion way, like our fore-fathers did it and succeed long before us, because what lies ahead of us will require all the help we can get. Watch this video and learn the 3 skills that ensured our ancestors survival in hard times of  famine and war.

The name Armageddon actually comes from a Hebrew word meaning the Mount of Megiddo, a small mountain located in northern Palestine at the end of a broad valley.

This valley has been the scene of many military conflicts in the past and will be the focal point of this great future conflict. The final countdown involves years rather than days.

Even before the countdown, several preliminary moves, which are predicted in the Bible, will shake the political, economic, and religious climate necessary for end time events. These preliminary moves are now falling into place in rapid succession. As these moves are completed, a more specific timetable of events can begin. The final countdown involves a brief period of preparation, plus seven more years – possibly three and a half years of comparative peace and three and a half years of unparalleled disaster and war climaxing at Armageddon.

A careful study of history and the Bible is necessary to put the Armageddon calendar together. The re-establishment of the nation of Israel in the Middle East was the necessary start. Then came the series of Israeli-Arab wars threatening to bring the United States and Russia into direct clash over the Middle East. Prophecy seems to indicate that Israel will not be destroyed by war. Instead, Israel will eventually be betrayed and forced to accept an outside settlement at the peace table.

Witchcraft, satan worship, and demonism will become increasingly prevalent throughout the world. World leaders will seek alliance with religious leaders to consolidate their powers in a modern culture as strange and mystical as the Dark Ages. World events during these days are setting the stage, but the precise countdown of seven years will begin with the confirmation of some kind of a covenant in Jerusalem.

Centralization of Power

During the preliminary moves, the international balance of power will become more and more concentrated in a confederacy of Mediterranean and European nations. Someday, there will arise an international leader, one man who will eventually emerge to superimpose a peace settlement on the Middle East and the more militant Arabs. This will bring an era of false peace, a move toward disarmament, and a major push for a new world economic system. In the first three and one-half years of the Tribulation, I think the picture will be as a calm before the storm as this new world leader consolidates his power. The last three and one-half years will contain a series of almost inconceivable catastrophes.

Somewhere during this menagerie of prophetic events, Russia will attempt a final bid for power in the Middle East, and her armies will be supernaturally destroyed. The balance of political power will then swing decisively to the new strongman controlling the world confederacy.

As satan’s man of the hour he will attempt to destroy Israel, who will then be disarmed and at peace.

In the fashion of the Babylonian and Roman emperors, he will deify himself and demand the worship of the world. Jews, professing Christians and minorities of all kinds will be caught in the worldwide persecution that will exceed Hitler’s methodical massacre of the Jews during World War II.

The world will begin to come apart at the seams worse than any ecologist’s nightmare. Acts of man and acts of God will combine to cause great disturbances in the world and in the solar system.

Meteors will plummet to earth wreaking destruction, and planets will run off their courses causing chaotic changes in climate.

Unnatural heat and cold, flooding and other disasters will wipe out much of the food production of the world. Great famines will cause millions to perish. Strange new epidemics will sweep the world killing missions in spite of all that modern medicine can do.

As the period draws to a close, earthquakes will level the great cities of the world, and geographic upheavals will cause mountains and islands to disappear into the sea.

Disaster after disaster will reduce world population in the course of a few years to a fraction of its present billions. Topping even these disasters will come a world war of unprecedented proportions. Hundreds of millions of men will pour into the Middle East in a gigantic world power struggle.

The Middle East will become the scene of the greatest war of history. Great armies from the south representing the millions of Africa will pour into the battle arena. Other great armies from the north will descend on Palestine. Climaxing the struggle will be millions of men from the Orient led by Red China who will cross the Euphrates River and join the fray. Locked in this deadly struggle, millions of men will perish in the greatest war of history. This is what the Bible describes as…

Armageddon

However, before the war is finally resolved and a victor determined, I am happy to say that the Lord Jesus Christ will come back in power and great glory from heaven. His coming, accompanied by millions of angels and saints, is described in graphic terms in Revelation 19. He will destroy the armies of the world, set up His own kingdom, and rule the earth as King of kings. Changes necessary to make the present situation conform to the prophetic anticipation of Daniel could take place rapidly in today’s world. Certain conditions, however, are absolutely necessary before the final peace settlement can occur.

First, Israel has to be back in the land before such a peace treaty would be possible. Israel’s return to the land in 1948 and her recognition as a political state constitute an important first step. The military conflict and constant turmoil ever since have set the stage for just such a peace treaty.

What form will the future peace settlement take? In view of the many surprises in the Middle East, it is hazardous to predict the precise form of such an agreement. Whatever its preliminary form, ultimately it must give Israel security from attack and freedom from the constant state of military defense. A general disarmament in the area may also be a part of the agreement.

The key issue in the negotiations will be the city of Jerusalem itself, which Israel prizes more than any other possession. Undoubtedly, there will be a strong attempt to make Jerusalem an international city with free access not only for Jews, but for Christians and Muslims as well.

How soon will such a future settlement come? No one can hazard a guess, but come it must. Armageddon is only a matter of time, and the world is rapidly moving toward that conclusion. But first, I see a Russian invasion to kick off the 7 years of tribulation.

Ezekiel called it the battle of…Gog and Magog.

Following the destruction, political power will shift to Europe, and a peace settlement between Israel and the Arabs will be imposed by the emerging antichrist.

When the peace is finally made, it will be observed for only three and a half years. It is destined to be broken bringing devastating consequences for the world and terrible persecution for Israel. The breaking of the covenant will mark what Christ called the Great Tribulation, a time, which Jeremiah referred to in Jeremiah 37 as “the time of Jacob’s trouble.”

The final persecution of Jews during the time of Jacob’s trouble will awaken Israel and awaken their understanding to what has taken place. All the hopes and illusions of the past will be stripped away. This clear fulfillment of prophecy will lead to the startling realization that the First coming of the Messiah is past and that His Second Coming is near. In the horror of the last three and a half years of the Tribulation, these new believers will cling to the hope of Christ’s Second Coming.

Jesus prophesied that He would not come again until Israel would say, “Blessed is He that Cometh in the Name of the Lord.” Therefore, there will be no permanent peace until the Prince of Peace, the Lord Jesus Christ, returns in power and great glory to reign over the earth.

Final Word

WE ARE STRAYING AWAY FROM OUR ROOTS ON A DANGEROUS ROAD FROM WHICH THERE WILL BE NO TURNING BACK. AND THE GOOD AND BAD NEWS IS THAT WE ARE THE LAST GENERATION THAT CAN TRULY DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

WE NO LONGER KNOW HOW TO LIVE WITHOUT REFRIGERATORS, WITHOUT CARS, WITHOUT PHONES OR WITHOUT SUPERMARKETS.

WHAT WILL YOU DO TOMORROW IF YOU SIMPLY ARE UNABLE TO BUY THINGS?

      NO NO NO..good greif…….It is a biblical fact according to the bibles own figures that last days are the last 70 years of the number of years between BC596…to AD70 = 666 yrs the period of time outlined once as a MAN and once as a BEAST in Daniel Ch 2 & 7 respectively .as the time the 7 fold (7 seals/trumps vials) curse of the law of Moses was poured out on the physical seed of Israel purified until only a spiritual seed was left…

      This is also how we know slam dunk that Muhammad was a false teacher…just like most “bible teaching Christians”…….THE SECOND COMING Thou Fool! “I come quickly” so “Hold fast till i come”… NOT …“in another 2000 yrs I might be coming soon any time now, so hold fast”!?! …those that deny the second coming of Christ in that first generation are practicing a damnable heresy in denying the lord that bought them ( 2Peter 2:1-2 ;2Tim 4:8)…….Mat 7:23..”I NEVER KNEW YOU” …..Mat 10:33. But whosoever shall deny me before men……..sound familiar?…. ……. If I said I am coming to your house in this generation when these things happen but no one knows the day or hour what fool would think I might be coming in 2000 years latter!?!? ..2 Tim 4: 4. And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be TURNED UNTO FABLES.

      Gal 1: 8. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.

      The book of Revelation offers us an interesting Theological dilemma. It states Rev 22:16. I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. Revelation also states it is “the true sayings” of Jesus and that it is “the testimony of Christ”. If this is not “the gospel of Jesus Christ” then what is it and should we consider it accursed testimony of an angel? If it is not to be considered accursed, then it cannot be some other gospel message then what was already given previously. However, this is the conundrum, for if this is the gospel message, then why do so few understand it? There is a possibility which few consider but is the overall thesis of this apology. The reason people don’t understand revelation is because they never understood what the gospel message was in the first place! In that case, where does that put those who claim it is not essential for salvation? Do you not find it quite curious that the most “Personally” given NT book By Jesus himself, is the least understood and given the least importance for Salvation in Christendom?….There are numerous preachers and bible exegetes but as Paul said “… I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge” . Most who profess the name of Christ are feeding on doctrines of devils and the ignorant.. There are, without question, many “qualified” teachers and scholars with many years of “dedication” and “solid education”. However, teachers, no matter how well lettered or numbered in degrees; if obtained from others; who are just as equally ignorant in such matters, are just “ blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.”………………

      Those looking for a physical return of Christ and your physical body to “leave the dirt” resurrected (1Cor 15:36-37) you are carnal mined & or living in prov 26:12

      DAY OF THE LORD”/ YEAR OF THE LORD – does NOT last for 24 hours!?!..Also means the day of resurrection & judgment do not last for one hour or one day either! They only begin (NOT END) in a certain hour & on a certain 24 hour day ….”SUN OF RIGHTEOUSNESS to arise”…..NOT..”come & get (your new resurrected body) it while it is still hot, only 24 hours of solar power left”!?!

      The second coming took place already and Christ promised that only HIS PEOPLE would see him ….John 14:19. Yet a little while, and THE WORLD SEETH ME NO MORE;….. [2 Cor 5:16 Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ AFTER THE FLESH, yet NOW HENCEFORTH KNOW WE HIM NO MORE….(here the Context of John 14 is his second coming)…..continued…..but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also. 20. AT THAT DAY .. 21. He that hath my commandments, and KEEPETH THEM, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and WILL MANIFEST MYSELF TO HIM……(again taking note “as he is” or 1Jn 3:2)

      22. Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, HOW IS IT THAT THOU WILT MANIFEST THYSELF UNTO US AND NOT UNTO THE WORLD? 23. Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, HE WILL KEEP MY WORDS: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.( Rev 3:20) 24. He that loveth me not.. (1Cor 16:22)…. KEEPETH NOT MY SAYINGS: ( REV 9:16-20)

      REVELATION 1:7. Behold, HE COMETH WITH CLOUDS; and EVERY EYE SHALL SEE HIM, …. There is a parallel here with ………….Exodus 24:10. And THEY SAW THE GOD OF ISRAEL : and there was under his feet as it were a paved work of a sapphire stone, and as it were the body of heaven in his clearness. 11. And upon the nobles of the children of Israel he laid not his hand: also THEY SAW GOD, and did eat and drink………..But Christ said….. John 1:18. NO MAN HATH SEEN GOD AT ANY TIME; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him. A person can see with their understanding and or see with their eyes…. It can see “seen” for certain that everything that Christ described was seen by the folks of that day in His coming but do they perceive that was him? …So what Christ said is true every eye saw him but the world does not see him….. With the eye they and folks still today can see everything Christ described to have taken place, but they do not “keep” ( believe and understand) his words as such they do not see him nor shall they ever.

      The saints who have physical died faithful in the flesh (every man in his own order) are changed in the blink of an eye & caught up to sit on that Great white throne ( this congregation of the saints is the body of Christ that folks will answer to at the judgment and these saints will judge all men who cannot see Christ along with the rest of the world……Folks think they are waiting to see Jesus but they will NEVER see Jesus himself they will only see the body of Christ condemn them the saints judge the world (Rev 3:21; 1 Cor 6:2 et al) the saints are the body of Christ…that is the only part of Christ they shall see….only the saints shall see God face to face…..most peoples idea of the second coming & day of the Lord and the judgment is completely wrong
