MAJOR PROPHETIC EVENTS FOR THE NEAR FUTURE

Aug
08

Today, many prophecy scholars, Bible code researchers, and modern day prophets believe that a Middle East war is imminent and this conflict will fulfill many biblical prophecies. These major prophetic events will probably begin this year in 2014 and continue until Messiah Yeshua returns to Earth (Revelation 19). The blood moons signify the coming of Messiah Yeshua and the end of the age of grace worldwide.

THE MIDDLE EAST EUROPE AND AMERICA

The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) will attack Iran. The IDF attack on Iran’s nuclear power enrichment facilities will cause the whole world to become more anti-Semitic and despise Israel. Although the IDF will succeed in removing the nuclear threat almost completely, there will be war. Israel will be hurt, primarily from the Hezbollah and Hamas rocket attacks. This strike against Iran will provoke the neighboring Arab nations and they will attempt to retaliate, which will evolve into a limited nuclear war.  The nations in the world, especially the Western powers, will panic, because there will be a limited nuclear war and a dramatic increase in oil prices. This will trigger financial disasters in Europe, America, and many other nations. The dollar will significantly and dramatically lose its value. The Euro will suddenly just collapse. Then, the U.S. dollar will follow. A new global currency will immediately take their place called the Amero Dollar.

RUSSIA’S GOG AND MAGOG

Vladimir Putin is preparing the way for another leader to rise in Russia. The new Russian leader will be the Gog and Magog describe in Ezekiel 38 and 39. But before this, Putin will try to take over other nations that once were part of the former Soviet Union satellite nations. He will be overthrown, deposed, and replaced by a ruthless, cunning, and disciplined Soviet style dictator. This Russian leader will try to take the Middle East by sudden and rapid conquest. Of course, according to Ezekiel 38-39, he, along with the nations with him, his “hordes”, will be defeated on the mountains of Israel when he attacks Israel from the north.

THE RAPTURE EVENT

Sometime within the near future, the Rapture of Messiah Yeshua’s Church will happen suddenly. The “Rapture” is a Christian term used to describe the Christian ascension to heaven shortly before the time of Messiah Yeshua’s second coming to Earth. This supernatural event is describe in 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 and 1 Corinthians 15:50-55, where those believers who are still alive at Messiah’s coming are described as being “caught up” together with their resurrected fellow Christians to meet him “in the air.” This rapture event is described again in 2 Corinthians 12:2-3 to denote Paul’s mysterious experience of being “caught up” into the third heaven, or paradise. Although there are differences of interpretation about the timing of the Rapture in relation to other end-time events, many Christian eschatology experts believe this event will happen before the seven year tribulation. They also believe this event can come at any moment now. This supernatural event is not chronological with the coming wars and other prophetic events, but a mystery hid in God. Messiah Yeshua can come now at any moment! We must make sure that we are right with God.

ECONOMIC COLLAPSE AND ANTI-MESSIAH

The whole world will collapse economically and a miraculous leader will arise out of the Middle East. He will be Satan incarnate, but people will blindly follow him, thinking he is actually the Messiah. The anti-Messiah is described in Revelation 13-20, Daniel 10-12, and other biblical passages.  He will immediately establish some order, particularly in Europe, but it will be so nefarious that many people all over the world will be in continual panic. They will just embrace anyone that seems to have some answers and especially the man of perdition, who is possessed by Satan himself and will be anointed with more charm and charisma than any other world leader in all of human history. No man or woman will be able to resist him, unless the Holy Spirit supernaturally opposes and stops his deception on a person.

ENDTIME PROPHETS

God will release his end time Tribulation prophets, evangelists, and apostles, who will demonstrate the authority of God in the Earth. They will preach Yeshua’s Gospel, proclaim judgments and calamities, and these will immediately follow. Millions of souls will be saved, because of these men who proclaim the gospel in fire and glory. Miracles will follow them. Thousands will be raised from the dead, food and water and provision will occur wherever they are preaching. Healing miracles will be manifested that will arrest the entire world as they watch on the television and the internet the supernatural acts by these men. The fear of the LORD will be so great that they will call fire down even upon the White House and Congress. The Resolute Desk in the Oval Office hit and cleaved in two down the middle. The entire Government will fall on its’ face and cry out to God for mercy. God will answer and move in great revival, not just in America, but around the world.

TERRORISM ATTACKS

Terrorism attacks of terrible destruction shall intensify worldwide after the first of the four Blood moons in the near future. Earthquakes and floods, fires, bombs, volcanic activity, will greatly increase, particularly in the Moslem nations and the ring of fire regions. This period will be really evil. We haven’t seen or even imagined the terrible calamities about to come. The protective covering of grace will be removed and the birth pangs will greatly increase over the globe within the coming months. With each of these heavenly signs, greater calamities will follow.

BLOOD MOONS

The blood moons in the heavens signify several things. First, they mean wars will be coming to Israel to destroy it before the Jubilee of Jerusalem. Second, they mean the end of the times of the Gentiles and the age of Grace. Third, they signal the beginning of Jacob’s trouble and the seven years of Tribulation. And fourth, they signal that the Day of the LORD is beginning. There are four phases of the withdrawal of protection and grace from the Earth. These four phases coincide directly with the four appearances of the blood moons. There will be judgments during and after each one as they appear and then there will be a respite of grace and a harvest of souls after each one. The first blood moon is coming during Passover on 15 April 2014. The second blood moon is on 8 October 2014. The third blood moon happens on 4 April 2015. And the fourth blood moon occurs on 28 September 2015.  Each of these four moons will bring worse judgments upon the earth. Israel and the nations will go into travail of the terrible darkness covering the Earth.

THE STATUE OF THE GENTILE NATIONS

The Lord reveals several indicators of exactly where we are at in His timetable. On the statue of the Gentile nations recorded in Daniel chapter two. We are at the toes and most of the feet of clay are now in place. The mixture of clay and iron signify the erosion of authority and leadership. The statue starts with Nebuchadnezzar in Babylon, who was given more absolute authority of the Gentile empires than any one. All the empires since had less power and authority from then on. But, in the last almost 120 years, there has been a collapse in leadership in all the nations and now we are well into the feet of clay, which represents the very last of the rule of the Roman Empire…it will be revived into 10 “toes”, or regions during the last seven years, led by the Anti-Messiah. We are now at the very edge of those toes on God’s prophetic time clock.

FOUR HORSEMEN AND THE ANTI-MESSIAH

After the Rapture of the Church, the Horsemen of Revelation chapter six will begin their terrifying ride worldwide and these four blood moons are a warning of their approach. We should pray that they don’t come exactly with each eclipse. However, they are directly related and are involved in their release upon Earth. The anti-messiah’s revelation brings false peace. The White Horse rider represents the anti-Messiah and at first he will not be recognized as evil by the world populations, according to Matthew 24:4-5 and Revelation 6:1-2. Only people filled with the Holy Spirit during the seven year tribulation (Revelation 6 to 19) will be capable of identifying the anti-Messiah. The world will adore the anti-Messiah, worship him fanatically because he will solve the global economic problems and he will “conquer” many with prosperity before he destroys the populations with violence, through flattery, diplomacy, and with a Mystery Babylonian religious system based on an ecumenical philosophy. He will deceive nearly all. This nefarious leader will emerge soon after the Rapture of Messiah’s Church. The anti-Messiah is the “Prince who is to come,” and who shall “confirm the Covenant” with the Jews for “one week,” according to Daniel 9:26 and Daniel 9:27.

When the Red Horse rider begins his ride peace will be removed worldwide and war will be unleashed globally. The symbolism is clear. The red color of the horse is a symbol of “blood,” and the sword of “war.” This time is clearly prophesied by Messiah, according to Matthew 24:6-7 and Revelation 6:3-4. The outcome of these wars will result in the worldwide 10 nation confederation, which Anti-Messiah shall become the head.

When the Black Horse rider begins his ride famine will be released upon the globe. Wars will be fought over food, water, and other resources. When all able-bodied men are drafted for war, the economy will collapse and fields will remain untitled and “famine” follows, just as Messiah Yeshua prophesied in Matthew 24:7 and Revelation 6:5-6. The olive and the grape do not need cultivation; therefore, their ruthless destruction is forbidden. All things will be regulated and buying and selling will be completely monitored when the 666 system is fully in place.

When the Pale Horse rider begins his ride Death will proliferate globally because of war, starvation, and demonic possession. Demons and evil spirits will be released worldwide and they will have the power to kill, steal, and destroy. By these means, one quarter of the Earth’s population will be destroyed according to Matthew 24:8 and Revelation 6:7-8. The Anti-Messiah cannot be revealed until the Bride of Messiah, the overcoming church, is raptured. However, many eschatology experts believe that he is alive now and ready to take his place in the right time.

FALLEN ANGELS

There are evil angelic beings that are chained beneath the Earth. They are about to be released upon the Earth’s surface. These are not just demons, but once high ranking angels under Lucifer before Satan fell from heaven shortly after the creation week.  These fallen angels are mentioned in the Book of Enoch and they are the fathers of the Nephilim giants described in Genesis chapter six. They are horrible beyond human understanding. They will bring extreme disasters and gigantic misery upon those left behind on Earth.  They will bring torment, torture, and destruction upon billions. Hordes of demons will follow the command of these evil angels. In the past deca

de, there has been an exponential rise in the occult, false religions, satanic worship, and witchcraft. This is because “the great falling away” from God that has happened progressively during the past nearly 120 years. Satan is raging upon the Earth even with the Bride’s intercession and the prayers from the Church. He knows his time is short. When this final restraint is removed, literally, all hell will break loose upon the Earth for seven years.
