Introduction

Jesus Christ warned that the world would experience a tremendous historical crisis just before He returned to establish His Kingdom. This crisis, He indicated, would bring about an unprecedented "great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be" (Matthew 24:21). This "time of tribulations" is described in both Daniel 9:27 and the book of Revelation as lasting a period of seven years. The prophets also warned that the most evil man in history would arise during this last generation and would be satanically empowered to seize political, economic, military, and religious control of the entire world's population. This man is identified by a number of names throughout the Scriptures including the "lawless one," "the man of sin," "the Wicked," and even "the abomination of desolation." Yet he is best known by the name given to him by the prophet John in his second epistle --- the "Antichrist."

In this book we will explore the detailed prophecies that describe the Antichrist's rise to power, and the nature of the oppressive global government that he will use to enslave humanity until Jesus Christ returns. This book will examine the rapid development of a world government that is eroding our national sovereignty and democratic values. We will investigate the development of a web of international treaties that are leading to the surrender of control over our economy, our currency, immigration, education, and our environment. Step by step, in the name of globalization and the demand to harmonize our laws with other nations, our national sovereignty is progressively diminishing. The national sovereignty that once allowed us to create a free enterprise economy along with political and religious freedom is being surrendered by our modern political leaders. These leaders no longer believe in a patriotic love of their nation, and have adopted a philosophy of globalism and the desire to become a world citizen. At the same time, technological advancement in surveillance equipment, such as the global spy system Project Echelon, is destroying our privacy and is setting the stage for the totalitarian police state described by the prophet John.

John wrote about the Mark of the Beast system in the last days in his book Revelation. The development of sophisticated new weapons systems, including suitcase sized tactical nuclear weapons, biological, and chemical weapons of mass destruction and computerized information warfare can neutralize an enemy's economy and infrastructure. New weapons using electromagnetic forces for mind control enable us to understand how the kingdom of the Antichrist could quickly establish global domination. Finally, we will explore the geo-political situation that is developing in the shifting power alliances between Russia, China, the Arab states, and Israel. This shift in power is laying the groundwork for the dramatic battles that will overthrow the current balance of power and lead to the establishment of the global kingdom of the Antichrist.

A number of biblical prophecies specifically teach that Christ will come in the air to take His Church to heaven at some point immediately before the Tribulation period begins. The purpose of this book is to outline and harmonize the incredible fulfillment of prophecy in our generation that will culminate in the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. The goal of Christians is the Resurrection, the "blessed hope." For the last two thousand years Christians have longed for the "blessed hope, the appearing of our Savior Jesus Christ." We are commanded by the Lord to rejoice in the constant expectation that "when he who is our life shall appear, then shall we also appear with Him in glory." Therefore the message of prophecy is not one of "doom and gloom" as some have suggested. Rather, Jesus commanded that His followers should respond to the beginning of the fulfillment of the prophecies with joyful anticipation because the prophecy of His return promises redemption for all those who have faith in Him. Jesus said, "And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh" (Luke 21:28).

The book of Revelation promises a special blessing to anyone who reads and studies this prophecy. "Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written in it; for the time is near" (Revelation 1:3). Yet, there is no other book in the Bible that is studied less than the book of Revelation. Our Lord Jesus Christ spoke of those who would ignore the prophecies about His return. He said, "O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken" (Luke 24:25).

Many Christians and pastors today believe that the prophetic message is both controversial and uncertain. As a result they have concluded that it is best avoided. However, the Word of God clearly commands believers to pay attention to the prophetic portions of the Scriptures. The apostle Peter assures us that "We have a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts" (2 Peter 1:19). An examination of the Scriptures reveals that there are 31,124 verses in both the Old and New Testaments. However, 27% of all the verses in the Bible, a total of 8,352, are focused on prophecy. This strongly indicates the tremendous importance of the prophetic message in the plan of God.

The Bible itself declares that "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works" (2 Timothy 3:16,17). An appreciation of these prophecies allows a Christian to fully understand the great doctrines of the Word of God. The prophecies reprove us and correct us, reminding each of us that we will all stand before our Lord at the final Judgment Seat of Christ in heaven to give an account of our life and our obedience since the moment of our salvation. The great prophetic truths encourage us to live in righteousness by reminding us that our actions and our motives will be measured against the eternal standards of God as opposed to the transitory standards of daily life.

An understanding of the prophecies strengthens our faith while they produce a strong confidence and hope in a world that appears hopeless. They call us to walk in holiness, rejecting the temptations of modern life. Lastly, and possibly most importantly, an understanding of the prophetic truths teaches those who follow Jesus Christ "to look for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God." On the basis of this declaration we can be confident that the one quarter of Scripture that is prophetic is absolutely vital in the spiritual life of the individual Christian as well as the Church. The Lord commands His Church to teach "the whole counsel of God." In the book of Acts (20:27 NKJ) we read these words of the apostle Paul, "For I have not shunned to declare to you the whole counsel of God." The message of prophecy is intensely practical. The first prophetic warning in history was given to Noah before the worldwide flood that destroyed virtually all life on this planet. For one hundred and twenty years Noah and Enoch, "the preacher of righteousness," taught the need for righteousness and warned their evil generation of the coming judgment of God. However, despite the fact that Noah spent over a century building a huge ark, demonstrating his faith in God's prophecy of the coming flood, the whole population rejected the warning. Even when Noah and his family actually entered the huge ark, that generation refused to believe the prophetic warnings until it was too late. When the rain began to fall and the flood waters began to rise, they finally realized the truth that disaster was at hand. However, the doors to the ark were shut. Noah's generation had knowingly rejected God's message. Tragically, that entire sinful and violent generation died.

The message of prophecy is vital to the Church in these last days for four basic reasons. The first is that the accuracy of the prophetic message absolutely proves the inspiration of the Scriptures and validates the message of Jesus Christ as the inspired Word of God. Secondly, the prophecies call upon Christians to live in holiness in an immoral world. Secondly, the New Testament tells us that the hope of the second coming of Christ reminds Christians to live in holiness while awaiting His return, "And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure" (I John 3:3). The third basic reason that prophecy is vital is that it encourages Christians to witness to their friends and family while there is still time. The apostle John warns us that we do not have unlimited time to share our faith with our neighbors. Jesus said, "I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work" (John 9:4). In the same manner that Jesus urgently witnessed to His generation, because He knew that it was rapidly coming to judgment with the destruction of Israel in 70 A.D., the message of prophecy now indicates that our generation is rapidly approaching the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. As our Lord Himself warned, our time to witness to those around us is limited. In light of the soon return of our Lord Jesus Christ we need to witness to our generation while we have the opportunity.

In 1 Chronicles 12:32 we read, "And of the children of Issachar, which were men that had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do." Notice that the tribe of Issachar was noted for their interest in prophecy in "understanding of the times." However, that knowledge was not academic; it was practical. They understood the times "to know what Israel ought to do." Our knowledge of the biblical prophecies about our generation and the rise of Antichrist's kingdom should motivate us to become a beacon of light in a dark time when many are looking for a reason to hope. Our hope is in the soon return of Jesus Christ.
