The Blood Of The Lamb (CE20)

Rev 12:11  And they overcame him (Antichrist) by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.
 
Our Lord Jesus showed us how we can overcome the Antichrist and his deceptions with:-

  1. The blood of the Lamb or the message of the cross
  2. Word of their testimonies
  3. Love not their lives

The Blood of the Lamb

What has the blood of Jesus done for me (a born again Christian) ?

  1. Destroyed curse on the ground: The crown of thorns when struck with the reed drew blood (falling to the ground) from the head of Jesus. (Gen 3:17-18)
  2. Destroyed curse on Adam: At Gethsemane Jesus prayed in great agony until He sweated droplets of blood to removed the curse of hard labour just for bread. (Gen 3:17,19)
  3. Healing of both soul and body: He was scourged so that by His stripes we are healed. (1Pet 2:24)
  4. We can forgive our enemies now.
  5. Destroyed all curses: He was crucified (hung on the tree) so that He took our curses upon Himself. (Gal 3:13)
  6. Became Propitiation for our sins: He shed His blood for us so that all our sins are forgiven. (1John 2:2)
  7. Free us from the fear of death: He died and destroyed the power of death, so that we are set free from the fear of death. (Heb 2:14-15)
  8. Make us Temple the Holy Spirit: On the third day Jesus rose from the death. Having made us sinless by His precious blood, He set His Holy Spirit within us to seal and protect us. So please do not defile His temple. (1Cor 3:16-17)
  9. Adopt us as children of God: We are now children of God and the devil cannot touch of harm us since our Father God has set the protection around us.  Rom 8:15-16
  10. Empower us: He has also given us the 'Name of Jesus' so that we can:-


  • Perform signs and wonders
  • Cast out demon
  • Heal the sick
  • Pray to our Father, etc.

Eph 4:23-24, 27  and  be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness... nor give place to the devil.
 
Brethren, once you have sincerely believed and accepted the gospel, you must also believe that you are truly a child of God, a new man created by God in true righteousness and holiness just like Adam before his fall. Let us not glorify nor give any place to the devil anymore, for he cannot hurt nor harm us without God's permission.

Overcoming Adam's Failure

John 4:15-16  “If you love Me, keep My commandments. And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever - the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.
 
When God was not around, Adam and Eve fell. To overcome this happening again, our Lord ensures that the Spirit of truth will abide in us all the time and help us overcome the devil if we keep His words.

Jam 4:7  Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.
 
Brethren, the moment we received our salvation, we are delivered from the evil one (along with idolatry, witchcrafts, etc.), so when we obey God's words, we only need to resist the devil and he will have to flee from us. Can you see the power that God has given to us to defeat the devil and his demons? So why fear him, let's walk in humility before God and His words, and let's also walk victoriously and joyfully at the onslaughts of the devil's temptations and deceptions.

Be Strong And Courageous (CE19)

Josh 1:7  "Only be strong and very courageous, that you may observe to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go."
 
All those entering the Promised land were strong and courageous to keep His laws and prosper in all their endeavours. But those who had witnessed the 10 plagues against the Egyptians, the opening of the Red Sea, and many other miracles were faithless. When told that the Canaanites were powerful with high walls and there were also giants there, they rebelled against God (Moses) when faced with certain defeat and death.

Num 14:3-4  "Why has the Lord brought us to this land to fall by the sword, that our wives and children should become victims? Would it not be better for us to return to Egypt?” So they said to one another, “Let us select a leader and return to Egypt.”

Mat 24:4-5  And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many.
 
Today Christians (just like the Israelites) are glorifying the Lord for the numerous miracles they saw (TV), heard (testimonies), read (books) and their wonderful encounters with God. But without truth and understanding of the gospel many of these Christians, when told by our Lord to suffer and possibly lay down their lives for the furtherance of His kingdom, will rebel against His words. Out of fear of sacrifices, sufferings and possibly death, these will deceive themselves with heresies such as prosperity gospel, positive confession, hyper-faith, etc.

Deut 11:18-19  “Therefore you lay up these words of mine in your heart and in your soul, and bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall teach them to your children, speaking of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up."
 
Those born and raised up in the wilderness were taught the words of God and most of them memorized the Torah. These spiritual Israelites were fearless entering the Promised land.

Rev 4:6-8  Then I saw another angel flying in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to those who dwell on the earth - to every nation, tribe, tongue, and people will- saying with a loud voice, “Fear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; and worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water.” And another angel followed, saying, “Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she has made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.”
 
During WW3 (fall of Babylon - the West), the everlasting gospel will be preached to the new converts (the angels will kill all those preaching lies, another gospel and heresies), which includes the message of the cross, resurrection, and end time events.
 
Once these new converts believe and keep His words, our Lord Jesus will baptize them in the Holy Spirit. The Spirit of Truth will then teach and guide them into all truth so that just like the spiritual Israelites, they will be strong and courageous to face the persecutions and martyrdom, knowing that the Spirit of God will be with them to lead, guide and protect them.

John 16:13  "However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come."

WW3 - The Wisdom Of God (CE18)

Rev 6:7-8  When He opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, “Come and see.” So I looked, and behold, a pale horse. And the name of him who sat on it was Death, and Hades followed with him. And power was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, with hunger, with death, and by the beasts of the earth.
 
The 5th Seal is the persecution and martyrdom of Christians (Mat 24:9-28). The 6th Seal is Rapture (Mat 24:29-31). This 4th Seal is the period of Sorrows (Mat 24:4-8).

John 9:4  "I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work."
 
The 4th Seal is the period of evangelism and discipleship for after WW3, (the night has come) the Antichrist heading the 'One World Order' will persecute and martyr godly Christians.

Fall of Israel and Jerusalem

  1. The present government of Israel is agnostic and fear man (US and UN) rather than God. Their defeat will bring them to repent just like in the days of the Babylonians.
  2. The ineffective, partial and abominable UN will be gone forever.
  3. Muslims worldwide will celebrate their long awaited victory thus replacing their bitterness, frustration and hatred with joy and satisfaction.

Rom 1:20-21  For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened.
 
Man are proud and refuse to bow down to the Almighty God, so He will use WW3 and extreme natural disasters to bring men to their knees. These powerful earthquakes and huge tsunamis will down power grid, causing dry pipes, food gone, storages destroyed and everything comes to a standstill. Starvation stares at the people and with deadly plagues in many homes desperation, anxieties, pains, hopelessness and death will be their fears.

John 14:12  “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father."
 
Because of His great love for man, I believe that He will take this opportunity to anoint every godly Christian to be able to miraculously feed all his neighbours (our Lord fed 5 thousands), and also to heal many (our Lord healed all), that our Lord Jesus is glorified. So when the Jews, Muslims, heathens, etc. witness the miraculous daily provision of food and healings, millions will believe Him and be saved.

Luke 24:46-47  Then He said to them, “Thus it is written, and thus it was necessary for the Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day, and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem."
 
These new converts must understand fully the gospel or the message of the cross, which will help them overcome heresies and deceptions.

John 4:29  “And now I have told you before it comes, that when it does come to pass, you may believe."
 
They must understand end time events and the wicked schemes of the Antichrist so that as each event comes to pass, they will believe and rejoice.

Brethren, the recovery from WW3 will take many, many years, but God will allow the Antichrist with his demonic powers to bring the recovery in a matter of months (once God has completed His preparation of the new converts). 

WW3 - End Time Harvest (CE17)

Dan 11:40  “At the time of the end the king of the South shall attack him; and the king of the North shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter the countries, overwhelm them, and pass through."
   
The moment Egypt and Israel attack Persia (Iran), the Iranian (with demonic power) army, navy and air force will swiftly attack and conquer all its neighbours and destroy all the US military bases there.

Dan 11:41  He shall also enter the Glorious Land, and many countries shall be overthrown; but these shall escape from his hand: Edom, Moab, and the prominent people of Ammon.

The capture of Jerusalem (Luke 21:21) and Israel (glorious land) by Iran (Antichrist) is the pride of Islam. Muslims worldwide will rejoice and celebrate for this occasion.

The Shia Muslim only allows the direct descendants of prophet Mohammed as leaders (Imams and Ayatollahs). King Abdullah II of Jordan is a direct descendant of Mohammed and possibly the reason why it will be spared the wrath of Iran. (Present day Jordan comprises of Edom, Moab and part of Ammon)

Dan 11:42-44  He shall stretch out his hand against the countries, and the land of Egypt shall not escape. He shall have power over the treasures of gold and silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt; also the Libyans and Ethiopians shall follow at his heels. But news from the east and the north shall trouble him; therefore he shall go out with great fury to destroy and annihilate many.
 
Egypt will be ransacked. The Indian Subcontinent (East) and US and EU (North West of Iran) will then attack Iran setting off World War 3 with Russia and allies fighting the West. Since a quarter of mankind will be killed, both sides will suffer great loses with millions killed by the limited deployment of the weapons of mass destruction.

With God fighting against US and the West (Babylon the great), its mighty military forces will be annihilated, its economy and financial system completely in ruin, with all its depraved pastors, gay bishops, covetous televangelists and antichrists killed (fulfilling Rev 17-18).

Mat 24:7  "For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places."
 
During WW3 and before mankind destroy this world with their nuclear bombs, God will pour his judgments upon all mankind in every nation by pestilences (plagues, AIDS, SARS, etc.), earthquakes with huge tsunamis killing by the hundreds of millions, and destroying warehouses, stores, farmlands, etc. causing many to die from starvation. The government of each nation will immediately stop fighting and concentrate in saving their population from these great natural disasters.

Brethren, I believe in God that if you are truly a born again Christian and have been faithful to Him by keeping His words, then, no matter where you are, God will protect you from all these disasters (Psalm 91) and preserve and prepare you for His end time ministry.

I believe that God will miraculously provide you with much needed food to feed and nourish the desperate, fearful and hungry heathens. With His anointing the sick, diseased, wounded, plagued, killed, etc. will be healed that the Name of Jesus is glorified.

With such great empowering and provisions during WW3, I believe this end time harvest will bring hundreds of millions to their salvation just because of our love, care, concern, sacrifices, mercies, etc. shown to them.

Iran, Conqueror Of The World? (CE16)

Dan 11:40-41a  "At the time of the end the king of the South shall attack him; and the king of the North shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter the countries, overwhelm them, and pass through. He shall also enter the Glorious Land, and many countries shall be overthrown;"
 
Please note that WW3 will be the last major war before Rapture.

1Thess 5:2-3  For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape.
 
Rapture occurs only when the whole world under the 'One World Order' is completely peaceful and safe with people working and living safely and merrily (unaware of the impending damnation or glory).

Luke 17:26-28  "And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man: They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot: They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built;"

Rev 19:7-8  "Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready.” And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.
 
Before God can prepare His bride, who is pure, holy, spotless, and perfect, He must cleanse His church first.

God will use WW3 to cleanse His church of heresies, false prophets, false teachers, covetous leaders, etc. and also His vengeance on:-
a. Israel and Jerusalem for signing the PLO-Israel Peace Treaty revealing their great Unbelief in Yahweh, in the events, miracles and His glories in the OT, in His reformation of Israel, God's deliverances in modern Israel, etc.
b. The Christian nations for the following abominations;-
1. Forcing Israel to sign the 1993 Peace treaty,
2. Forcing its people (also other nations) to approve and accept sodomy,
3. Approve gay marriage to destroy the human race,
4. Heresies to destroy Christians and their faith in Jesus,
5. False prophets, false teachers, covetous, worldly and sodomite church leaders, etc.
6. and other abominable practices.

Only the Muslims disallow the Gay Parades in their countries and Muslims are known to have purposely killed sodomites.

Only the Iranian Shias believe that in the last days, the 12th Imam will help the Muslims to conquer and rule the world under their 'One World Order'

Rom 1:28-32  And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are... haters of God... inventors of evil things... untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.

Brethren, ensure that we are not approving or practising any of the above, for God will allow the Iranians (Antichrist) to kill all these depraved, untransformed and heretic Christians (all destined to Hades) in the coming WW3, so that He can prepare the bride of the Lamb.

Explosive Iran In The Middle-East (CE15)

Dan 11:40  “At the time of the end the king of the South shall attack him; and the king of the North shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, horsemen, and with many ships;"
 
US President Bush in 2002 used axle of evil, to describe any government that his administration accused of sponsoring terrorism and seeking weapons of mass destruction - namely Iran, Iraq, and North Korea.

Why was Iran accused as one?
 
Following a coup d'état instigated by the U.K. and the U.S. in 1953, Persia gradually became closely aligned with the West but grew increasingly autocratic. Growing dissent against foreign influence and political repression led to the 1979 Revolution and the establishment of an Islamic republic of Iran, which has a Shia theocratic government with its anti West and extreme Islamic practices.

Since its founding in 1979, the Iranian regime has employed terrorism as a key instrument to advance its interests and strike at its domestic and foreign enemies. As a result, the U.S. government labels the Islamic Republic of Iran the “most active state sponsor of terrorism.” The U.S. has designated Iran as a state sponsor of terrorism since 1984.

Some of the Acts of Terrorism

  • 1979  Nov 4th - Only months after the Islamic Revolution, a radical group of Iranian students stormed the American Embassy in Tehran, taking 66 Americans hostage.
  • 1983  63 people, including 17 Americans, were killed and more than 100 injured when a suicide bomber rammed a truck carrying 2,000 pounds of explosives into the U.S. Embassy in Beirut.
  • 1983  241 U.S. marines were killed and over 100 wounded when an Iranian suicide bomber drove a truck carrying the equivalent of 15,000-21,000 pounds of TNT into the U.S. Marine Barracks at Beirut International Airport. Causing the "largest non-nuclear explosion that had ever been detonated on the face of the Earth,"
  • 1994  Iran was directly responsible for the 1994 AMIA Jewish community center bombing in Buenos Aires, which killed 85 and injured 300. The AMIA attack remains the deadliest terrorist attack in Argentina’s history.
  • 1996  The bombing of Khobar Towers, a U.S. military housing complex in Saudi Arabia, left nineteen Americans dead and 372 injured.
  • 2003-11  Following the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq, Iran undermined U.S. operations by "consistently [supplying] weapons, its own advisors, and Lebanese Hezbollah advisors to multiple residence groups in Iraq, both Sunni and Shia,” which targeted Coalition Forces.
  • Since 2006  Iranian has been supporting the Taliban against U.S. troops in Afghanistan.

Iran Nuclear Capacity

Before the IAEA's report to UN on 8th Nov 2011 of Iran's non compliance with its Agreement in 2005, rumours were rife that Israel with support from the West and Saudi Arabia would destroy all nuclear sites in Iran. Iran is suspected of having many secret underground nuclear research sites. Iran has constantly reminded Israel (also Saudi Arabia) that its first nuclear bomb would be for the complete annihilation of Israel and the next for Saudi Arabia. Any further revelation of Iran developing the nuclear bomb will set Israel and the Sunni Arabs to attack Iran for a nuclear bomb in Iran's possession is just madness.
 
Iran with its leader's constant war cry of annihilating Israel, US and the West and the many provocations of its Navy and air forces against US and Western boats and planes can start the war. The recent test of its ICBM has put Israel and the Arab world to great discomfort and fear.

Israel, The Enemy Of Arabs (CE14)

Dan 11:40-41 _“At the time of the end the king of the South shall attack him; and the king of the North shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, horsemen, and with many ships; and *he shall enter the countries, overwhelm them, and pass through. He shall also enter the Glorious Land, and many countries shall be overthrown;*"_
 
The moment the king of the South (Israel and Egypt) attack Iran (Persia, head of the king of the North), immediately and in great speed Iran and allies will attack and conquer many countries including Israel and Arab neighbours who had schemed and supported the Egyptians to attack Iran. These will be Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain, UAE, Lebanon, etc.
 
The military cooperation between Israel and the Arab nations to attack Iran, another Muslim nation is unbelievable for all Muslim nations want the annihilation of Israel and to push all the Israelites into the Sea. All these Arab nations were either directly or indirectly fighting Israel since its formation in 1948.


  • 1948 War of Independence was fought between the Israel and a military coalition of Arab states including Iraq, Syria, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, etc. with Israel gaining another 50% more land.
  • 1967 Six-day War (June 1967) Fought between Israel and Arab neighbors Egypt, Jordan and Syria, with Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Algeria contributed troops and arms. After this war, the territory held by Israel expanded significantly with the West Bank, Golan Heights, Sinai and Gaza strip.
  • 1973 the Yom Kippur War started on Saturday 6th October. Egyptian and Syrian military forces launched an attack knowing that the military of Israel would be participating in the religious celebrations associated with Yom Kippur (their security greatly reduced). On the Golan Heights alone, 150 Israeli tanks faced 1,400 Syria tanks and in the Suez region just 500 Israeli soldiers faced 80,000 Egyptians. The Syrians and Egyptians were also supported by the coalition with military troops and weaponry from Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Cuba, Jordan, Libya, etc. After three days of losses, the Israelites recovered and by Oct 24, with UN intervention, it stopped the Israelites from inflicting further losses on the Syrians, Egyptians, etc.

So when God fought alongside Israel, assured disasters and defeats became miraculous and convincing victories that the Lord God Almighty is glorified. Brethren, when walk alongside God (or walk in the Spirit by keeping His words, will, etc.), we will rejoice in our exciting, generous, merciful, faithful, fruitful and victorious lives so that our Lord Jesus is glorified.

Humiliation of the Egyptians

Egypt was involved in all the wars with Israel and had suffered great humiliation in the unexpected heavy losses of military personnels, weapons, planes, tanks, etc. from all their miserable defeats. Israel has been its greatest enemy and not only to Egyptians but also to all Arab nations. On the other hand, Iran the champion of the Muslims has openly declared its hatred for Israel and has boasted of the annihilation of Israel with its first nuclear bomb.

[ Note - in 1982, as a result of the Israel-Egypt Peace Treaty of 1979, Israel had withdrawn from all of the Sinai Peninsula except the contentious territory of Taba, which was returned after a ruling by a commission of arbitration in 1989.]

How then can we believe that Egypt will fight alongside Israel to attack Iran or what is Iran doing that will cause the Arabs to fight him?

The Fall Of Israel And Jerusalem (CE13)

Dan 11:40-41 _“At the time of the end the king of the South shall attack him; and the king of the North shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter the countries, overwhelm them, and pass through. He shall also enter the Glorious Land,
 
If we are living in the last days, then the present Israel occupying only just a portion of land of Judea will be conquered by the Antichrist. God only recently in 1948 recreated the nation of Israel for the Jews to 'Aliyah' (from foreign nations).

Luke 21:20-22  “But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation is near. Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, let those who are in the midst of her depart, and let not those who are in the country enter her. For these are the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.
 
God's destruction of Israel is His vengeance for the Israelites had committed great abominations against Him. After the Six-day war, God gave Israel in its former glory back to the descendants of Israel. But in 1993, Israel President Rabin signed the abominable PLO-Israel Peace Treaty, requiring Israel to cede Jericho, Gaza strip and the West Bank to the Arabs. Since then Israel has been rebelling against God for they have been ceding the promised land, and leaving the present nation of Israel only occupying mainly part of Judea.

When the people repent of their sins God relent His judgments

God relented in Nineveh

Jonah 3:4-6,10  And Jonah began to enter the city on the first day’s walk. Then he cried out and said, “Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown!” So the people of Nineveh believed God, proclaimed a fast, and put on, sackcloth, from the greatest to the least of them. Then word came to the king of Nineveh; and he arose from his throne and laid aside his robe, covered himself with sackcloth and sat in ashes... Then God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God relented from the disaster that He had said He would bring upon them, and He did not do it._
 
God relented His judgment when the heathens (Assyrians) repented, so how much more will God pour His love upon His people when we repent.

God relented in Jerusalem

2King 19:1,20,34  And so it was, when King Hezekiah heard it, that he tore his clothes, covered himself with sackcloth, and went into the house of the Lord... Then Isaiah the son of Amoz sent to Hezekiah, saying, “Thus says the Lord God of Israel: ‘Because you have prayed to Me against Sennacherib king of Assyria, I have heard... For I will defend this city, to save it For My own sake and for My servant David’s sake.’ ”

Only repentance moves God to relent

Jer 25:8-9  "Therefore thus says the Lord of hosts: ‘Because you have not heard My words, behold, I will send and take all the families of the north,’ says the Lord , ‘and Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, My servant, and will bring them against this land, against its inhabitants, and against these nations all around, and will utterly destroy them, and make them an astonishment, a hissing, and perpetual desolations."

Israel today is in similar situations as in the days of Jeremiah, and brethren, we must get the Israelites to become Christians (free from the curse of the law) and to get PM, Parliament, authority, rabbis, etc. to fast and repent for giving away God's lands, Gay Parades and abominable practices in the glorious Land.

The Promised Land Of Israel (CE12)

Dan 11:40-41a _“At the time of the end the king of the South shall attack him; and the king of the North shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter the countries, overwhelm them, and pass through. He shall also enter the Glorious Land.
 
The Glorious Land is the only piece of land on earth that God gave to Israelites by fighting alongside them.

Land promised to Abraham

Gen 5:18-21  On the same day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying:  “To your descendants I have given this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the River Euphrates— the Kenites, the Kenezzites, the Kadmonites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Rephaim, the Amorites, the Canaanites, the Girgashites, and the Jebusites.”_

This literally covers almost the whole of the middle East stretching from Iraq, Syria, Lebonan, Israel, Jordan, Western Saudi Arabia and Egypt. In fact these were the land that the Patriarchs (from Abraham to Moses) had sojourned since Abraham left Ur for the promised land.

Deut 11:8,22-25  “Therefore you shall keep every commandment which I command you today, that you may be strong, and go in and possess the land which you cross over to possess... For if you carefully keep all these commandments which I command you to do—to love the Lord your God, to walk in all His ways, and to hold fast to Him— then the Lord will drive out all these nations from before you, and you will dispossess greater and mightier nations than yourselves. Every place on which the sole of your foot treads shall be yours: from the wilderness and Lebanon, from the river, the River Euphrates, even to the Western Sea, shall be your territory.
   
Though God had promised them almost the whole middle East as their inheritance and will fight for them to give them the promised land (this is the covenant), the Israelites must fulfill their part of the covenant by keeping all His commands and also walking out their faith in Him by entering Canaan land and fight the enemies.

Conquest of Canaan Land

Josh 1:3-4  Every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given you, as I said to Moses. From the wilderness and this Lebanon as far as the great river, the River Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and to the Great Sea toward the going down of the sun, shall be your territory.
 
God initially gave just Canaan Land to the Israelites. Even after witnessing God's mighty power in tearing down the walls of Jericho, the Israelites still disobeyed God by keeping some of the spoilt of Jericho, causing their next defeat at Ai.

Though God promised Joshua to give all the land his foot had trodden over, yet because of the sins and disobedience of the Israelites, it took almost 500 years before the whole Canaan land was conquered by King David. It will be at the Millennium Rule that our Lord Jesus will bring the promised land (Arab nations including Egypt) under His fold.

Zach 14:19  This shall be the punishment of Egypt and the punishment of all the nations that do not come up to keep the Feast of Tabernacles.

In 1967, God gave the Israelites the land of Israel after the six-day war (possibly the same land area as King David), but in 1993, President Rabin signed the abominable PLO-Israel Peace Treaty to cede Jericho, the Gaza strip and the West Bank to the Palestinian leaving for themselves only part of the land of Judaea.

Progress Of End Time War (CE11)

Dan 11:40 “At the time of the end the king of the South shall attack him; and the king of the North shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter the countries, overwhelm them, and pass through.

The moment Egypt and Israel attack Persia (Iran), the Iranian army, navy and air force (chariots, ships, horsemen) will immediately launch the counterattack (like a whirlwind). Since this is God's prophecy, its fulfillment already has God's approval. God will use the king of the North (Iran) as judgment to destroy the king of the South (Israel -for Unbelief and Egypt) and the Sunni Arab nations for exporting the Islamic extremists, which cause great atrocities against the Christians (His people) and the Jews.

Missiles and the Iranian air force will be launched from Iran to attack all the bases of US and the West and all nearby enemy warships. With the help of demonic forces, all the missiles and bombs will find their targets to the great surprise of US and the West (for God will nullify all their latest advanced military detections, arsenals and weapons). With the malfunctions of all their equipments, US, West and the Arabs will be completely at the mercy of the attackers. So within minutes all these US bases and warships are annihilated. (This will be similar to the complete destruction of the walls of Jericho)

At the same time the Shia armies from Iran, Iraq and Syria will move southward towards Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, etc. and also towards Lebanon, Jordan, Israel and Egypt. Again with the help of demonic forces, these Shia armies will not meet any real resistance (arsenals malfunction) and within days they will conquer Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain, etc. The mighty Saudi army will be just sitting ducks. (This will be similar to the destructions of the enemy armies caused by confusion during the days of Gideon)

With demonic helps, the Iranian Navy will wipe out all the naval fleets (again equipments malfunction) of US and the West in the Persian Gulf. Then they will advance to Bahrain, Qatar, UAE, Saudi Arabia, etc. from across the gulf and then conquer them.

US and the West will then declare war with Iran, and they will target their ICBM and missiles at Iran. They will send their mighty fleets to fight Iran. Russia (and possibly China) will immediately side with Iran and challenges US and the West, this then will be the beginning of WW3.

2Thess 2:9-10  The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

Brethren, is this the Antichrist (lawless one or Devil's incarnate), who has satanic powers and can call upon his demonic forces to destroy the powerful US and the West, similar to the 12th Imam who according to the Shia Quran is their saviour, who will conquer the whole world for Islam.

Daniel's End Time War (CE10)

Dan 11:40 “At the time of the end the *king of the South* shall attack him; and the *king of the North* shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter the countries, overwhelm them, and pass through.
 
According to the prophecy given to Daniel, in the last days (time of the end) the king of the South will attack the king of the North.

After the death of Alexander the Great, the Grecian Empire was broken up into 4 kingdoms under the control of each General:-

  1. Greece and Macedonia: Gen. Cassander took control of Greece and Macedonia;
  2. Turkey: Gen. Lysimachus took control of Thrace and most of Asia Minor;
  3. Southern kingdom: Gen. Ptolemy took control of Egypt, Palestine (Israel), Petra and Cyprus;
  4. Northern kingdom: Gen. Seleucus took control of Iran (Persia), Iraq, Syria, Lebanon (former Persian Empire).

The king of the North

  • Iran has become a highly religious Shia nation and is completely controlled by the Ayatollah.
  • Iraq was conquered by US collision in 2003 and this war torn nation is now ruled by Shia
  • Syria ruled by Shia, was caught in the Arab uprising and is now a war torn country.

(Note - Turkey was not part of the Northern Kingdom)

  • Iran      90% Shia,  ruler Shia
  • Iraq    >70% Shia,  ruler Shia
  • Syria  <15% Shia,  ruler Shia
  • Hezbollah in Lebanon is Shia

There are at least 4 groups fighting one another in this region.

  1. The Shia which governs Iran, Iraq and Syria.
  2. The Sunni which is the majority in Syria and are rebelling against the ruling party in both Syria and Iraq. The West supported the Shia by disposing Saddam Hussein in Iraq, but in Syria they are supporting the rebelling Sunnis.
  3. ISIS the Islamic extremists, which formed the Sunni Caliphate in Syria and Iraq and are fighting everyone.
  4. The Kurds are protecting their own land from ISIS and are rebelling against the ruling powers for independence.

At present all efforts are directed to annihilate ISIS for its great atrocities and horrific killings. This mess will see the Shias, under the control and direction of Iran (Persia) and with the help of the Russians, will finally massacre the Sunnis and emerge as the victor in this conflict.
 
In 2016, with the help of Russia - Iran, Iraq, Syria and Hezbollah signed an understanding for military co-operation, which will eventually lead to the formation of the coalition of these countries headed by Iran. The present wars in both Syria and Iraq are seeing the imminent defeat of IS and also the erosion of powers of the Sunnis. These will soon result to victories of Shias in both Iraq and Syria and finally the formation of the king of the North headed by Iran (Persia)

The king of the South

The king of the South is basically Egypt and Israel. Egypt is a Sunni Muslim nation but a secular state and will not tolerate extremism (Latest Islamic Brotherhood government was recently removed by the military). It has volunteers/army fighting alongside the Sunni rebels against Assad's Shia government, which rules over the more than 70% Sunni majority in Syria. The West and the Arab States (Sunni) will encourage, finance and support Egypt to attack Iran. At the same time, they will encourage Israel (who, for the sake of self-preservation) to attack the nuclear facilities in Iran.

Brethren, if Iran revives its nuclear bomb programs or indiscriminately murders the moderate Sunnis in Iraq and Syria, what will be its outcome?

Increase In Knowledge (CE09)

Dan 12:4  "But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.”
 
The way God described future inventions are educational and enlightening. Here we can see His great wisdom in imparting the understanding and knowledge to genuine seekers of His truth. The Antichrist (masquerading as the angel of light will come with all the lying wonders and powers of Satan so that if possible even the elects of God will be deceived if the time of the great tribulation is not shortened) was described as the 'abomination of desolation', whose deceptions will completely destroy our faith in our Lord Jesus Christ.
 
Similarly, the way God described Islam is easily recognised by learned and knowledgeable Christians when they watch on TV how the Muslims perform the Haj in Mecca. The pilgrims were seen as worshipping the fortress (covered with a black cloth decorated with gold, silver and precious stones) when they walked round it. The women in Saudi Arabia, the home of Islam, were treated as slaves and deprived of their desires to be loved as wives and mothers.

6. many will run to and fro

Daniel prophesied that in the last days, mankind will be travelling all the time. During the days of Daniel, walking is the most common mean of transportation. Just imagine walking or travelling with the family on mules for more than 10 km to visit relatives. This will likely take the whole day. This type of journey is rare and possibly occurs 2-3 times a year.

Today, travelling 10-20 km to work is normal and almost a daily affair. Travelling to a distant land may take a few months by boat or on foot, but today man are travelling half way round the world within a day by air for business and many are taking their holidays to far away lands a few times a year for there are cheap and available to most people.

7. knowledge will increase

Within these short period of just over ten years in this millennium, the advancement in knowledge in all aspects is unbelievable:-

a. Science

  • God particle or Higgs boson was discovered in 2013. Discoveries of the various types of new forces, gluons, boson, subatomic particles, etc. that God used to create the universe.
  • Creation of new particles in CERN: Many types of new elements (some lasting only a fraction of a millisecond) were created at CERN to complete the periodic table of elements.
  • And many other scientific discoveries.

b. Nanotechnology

This has helped to produce extremely small and efficient computers, machines, etc. One offshoot is the nano-robot which is smaller than cancer cells and this can be sent into the body to hunt and destroy cancer cells.

c. DNA
 
Man has succeeded in mapping human DNA. By modifying the DNA, there is the ability to produce designer's babies, healing or free from certain diseases, having healthier lives, etc.

The above are just a sample of the advancement in these few decades. There is also great advancement in knowledge in the fields of medicine, engineering, chemistry, physics, construction, atomic and nuclear abilities, etc.

In the book of Daniel, Prophet Daniel also prophesied when World War 3 will begin.

Brethren, God's words are perfect and true, and He only wants us to believe and keep them so that we will be able to rejoice with Him as He unfolds the end time events one by one right before our eyes to prevent us from being caught as a 'thief in the night'.

Daniel In The Last Days (CE08)

Mat 24:15 _“Therefore when you see the 'abomination of desolation,' spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place" *(whoever reads, let him understand)*_
 
Daniel was not only honoured by our Lord Jesus as a prophet but he was also the most important end time prophet. Our Lord told us to read and understand his book concerning end time prophecies. From His advice, it is imperative that we must read carefully the book of Daniel again and again until we can understand some basic end time mysteries.

All those without any understanding of end time events (from the book of Daniel or Mat 24) will always reveal their ignorance by proclaiming the 'imminent coming of Jesus' whenever there are great earthquakes, wars, pestilences, disasters, etc. These are fearful for they have been hoarding, stealing or robbing God of His money by withholding them from His various ministries. These blind Christians love themselves, money, pleasures, etc. more than God.

Note:- Jesus cannot come back until after:-

  1. Israel and Jerusalem conquered by its enemies,
  2. The building of the temple of God,
  3. Antichrist seated in the temple of God proclaiming himself god.
  4. Etc.

Here are a few important mysteries revealed in the book of Daniel:-

1. Abomination of Desolation

Abomination - Satan, idolatry, abominable practices.

Desolation - complete destruction of our faith in Jesus and His words.
 
So 'abomination of desolation' is the Antichrist (Satan himself, masquerading as an angel of light), who with his great demonic powers, signs and wonders may deceive even the elects of God.

2. The Antichrist is a Shia Muslim

Dan 11:37-38  He shall regard neither the God of his fathers nor the desire of women, nor regard any god; for he shall exalt himself above them all. But in their place he shall honor a god of fortresses; and a god which his fathers did not know he shall honor with gold and silver, with precious stones and pleasant things.

a. No regard for the desires of women - women in Saudi Arabia (home of Islam) are treated as slaves and their desires of true love from their husbands and families are disregarded. A Muslim man can have 4 wives.
b. Honour a god of fortress - at Mecca whenever the pilgrims walk round the black fortress (holding the Kaaba stone within) and bow down to it,  appears that they are worshipping the fortress.
c. Cloth adorned with precious stones - the black cloth covering the fortress is adorned with golden and silver threads and precious stones.

3. Antichrist builds temple of God

Dan 11:45  And he shall plant the tents of his palace between the seas and the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and no one will help him.
 
The Antichrist will build the temple of God (also his palace) on the Temple Mount (glorious holy mountain) between the Mediterranean Sea and the Dead Sea.

4. No one can save him from death

2Thess 2:8  And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming.
 
The Antichrist will be killed at the coming of our Lord Jesus at Rapture.

5. Revealed only in the lasts days

Dan 12:4  But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.  (see also Dan 12:8-9)
 
God told Daniel twice that the end time mysteries will only be revealed in the last days, so please discard all earlier end time teachings as incorrect.

Christians In The Last Days (CE07)

2Tim 3:1-5  But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!
 
Brethren, this is a good checklist for every end time Christian without any exception. If we find that we are weak in any area (many of us will find that we fail in many areas), we have no choice but to admit, confess, repent and humble ourselves before the Lord for His help and deliverance.

Without the knowledge of our own weaknesses, how do we expect to change. Our destiny is in our own hands. Even the grace of salvation was in our own hands. Had we not decided to accept His everlasting gospel then we would definitely have to face insecurity, helplessness and damnation.

We must be sincere to ourselves so that at our genuine repentance, His abundant grace of giving the Spirit of truth to dwell in us will help convict and deliver us from all the above weaknesses.

Gal 5:24-25  And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

Having a kind of godliness but denying its power
 
Unfortunately these so-called Christians in practice do not really believe the bible nor the power in His words which can transform them into the image of our Lord Jesus Christ for His words are spirit and they are life.

John 6:63  "It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life."
 
However, they walk according to their own carnal lust and greed for there is no fear of God in them otherwise they would have kept His words and have crucified their flesh.

1 Cor 2:13-14  These things we also speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

Mat 15:8-9  "These people draw near to Me with their mouth, and honor Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me. And in vain they worship Me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.”
 
Unfortunately, many Christians today no longer worship God in Spirit and in truth, because they no longer endure sound doctrine but prefer the writings of men more than the word of God. These books with heretic teachings are easy to accept for they are mainly based on worldly wisdom, which helps to satisfy their lusts or desires thus corrupting them and making them to be more carnal and worldly.

2Tim 2:3-4  For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.

Brethren, therefore, since we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we do not lose heart. But we have renounced the hidden things of shame, not walking in craftiness nor handling the word of God deceitfully, but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God. (2Cor 4:1-2)

Salvation Of Israel (CE06)

Rom 11:25-26  For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written:  “The Deliverer will come out of Zion, And He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob;
 
The Israelites are still blind and it is our duty to bring to them to the saving grace of God so that just like the apostles and the devout Jews, they will believe the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Rom 11:20, 23  Well said. Because of unbelief they were broken off, and you stand by faith. Do not be haughty, but fear... And they also, if they do not continue in unbelief, will be grafted in, for God is able to graft them in again.
 
Because of unbelief the Israelites were cut off as the people of God. So if we are living in the last days, then before Rapture (fullness of he Gentiles), we have to show/preach to them the prophesies of our Lord Jesus Christ concerning Israel and Jerusalem so that when these prophesies come to pass they will believe the gospel and be saved.

John 14:29  “And now I have told you before it comes, that when it does come to pass, you may believe."

Luke 21:20-22  “But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation is near. Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, let those who are in the midst of her depart, and let not those who are in the country enter her. For these are the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled."
 
All Israelites must flee Israel before WW3, and those left behind must flee into the mountains for God has given Israel and its cities to the enemies. So when they obey the words of our Lord they will not be killed, just like the warnings of God given to the Israelites through Jeremiah.

Jer 38:2-3  “Thus says the Lord : ‘He who remains in this city shall die by the sword, by famine, and by pestilence; but he who goes over to the Chaldeans shall live; his life shall be as a prize to him, and he shall live.’ Thus says the Lord : ‘This city shall surely be given into the hand of the king of Babylon’s army, which shall take it.’ ”

Jer 38:4  Therefore the princes said to the king, “Please, let this man be put to death, for thus he weakens the hands of the men of war who remain in this city, and the hands of all the people, by speaking such words to them. For this man does not seek the welfare of this people, but their harm.”
 
Or are you rebelling against the prophecies of our Lord Jesus Christ by believing these false prophets who destroyed the Israelites by giving them false hope of peace in their false prophesies? Brethren, do not follow, approve, support nor quote from these false prophets who will be like Hananiah.

Jer 28:15-17  Then the prophet Jeremiah said to Hananiah the prophet, “Hear now, Hananiah, the Lord has not sent you, but you make this people trust in a lie. Therefore thus says the Lord : ‘Behold, I will cast you from the face of the earth. This year you shall die, because you have taught rebellion against the Lord .’ ” So Hananiah the prophet died the same year in the seventh month.

Brethren, if you believe that we are now living in the last days then warn the powerful and stiff-necked Israelites of the impending fall of Israel and Jerusalem in the coming WW3, so that when they see the prophesies coming to pass they will be saved by believing in our Lord Jesus Christ.

Israel In The Last Day (CE05)

Luke 21:21-22, 24  "Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, let those who are in the midst of her depart, and let not those who are in the country enter her. For these are the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled... And they will fall by the edge of the sword, and be led away captive into all nations..and..Jerusalem will be trampled by Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled."
 
To fulfill scriptures, God warned the Israelites to flee the modern Israel for its destruction​ is the vengeance of God.

Lev 26:27-28,31-32  ‘And after all this, if you do not obey Me, but walk contrary to Me, then I also will walk contrary to you in fury; and I, even I, will chastise you seven times for your sins...I will lay your cities waste and bring your sanctuaries to desolation, and I will not smell the fragrance of your sweet aromas. I will bring the land to desolation, and your enemies who dwell in it shall be astonished at it.
 
God's covenant with the Israelites is that if they disobey or rebel against His commandments, He will hand the land of Israel over to its enemies, who will destroy all its cities. During the time of Jeremiah, the rebellion of Israel caused God to allow the Babylonians to made desolate Israel and His holy city Jerusalem.

Jer 9:11,13-14  “I will make Jerusalem a heap of ruins, a den of jackals. I will make the cities of Judah desolate, without an inhabitant.” .. And the Lord said, “Because they have forsaken My law which I set before them, and have not obeyed My voice, nor walked according to it, but they have walked according to the dictates of their own hearts and after the Baals, which their fathers taught them,”

Modern Israel's Abomination
 
In 1948 God gave only part of the land of Israel back to the Israelites for its population was a mere 630K, but in 1967 with a population of 2.4 million, God gave them back the whole Israel as their eternal inheritance. In 1993, President Yitzhak Rabin of Israel signed the abominable PLO-Israel Peace Treaty. This treaty required Israel to immediately cede to its enemies:-
1. Jericho - remember the walls
2. Gaza Strip - remember Goliath the Philistine (Gaza strip), and
3. West Bank to be given away in stages - remember the conquest of Canaan Land by Joshua.
 
All these miracles of Yahweh were carefully recorded in the OT. Rabin with one stroke of the pen destroyed them, the OT and reduced Yahweh into a myth. Never before had anyone committed a greater abomination than Rabin so God allowed him to be assassinated.
 
For this great abomination of Israel, Yahweh has no choice but to allow its enemies in the coming WW3 to conquer Israel and trample underfoot Jerusalem until Rapture. God is always faithful to His words and His covenant. Similarly when we sin, as our Father, He will always correct or chastise us unless we repent.

Note - Rapture can only occur after the fall of Jerusalem. The teaching of Jesus' imminent coming (Jesus can come anytime, even now) is heresy.

Brethren, when God fights Israel as vengeance for its rebellion and disobedience to His words (OT), and its faithlessness to Yahweh the Almighty God, who are we to challenge Him? Be like Daniel and let's humble ourselves before the Almighty God and plead for mercy for the Israelites. Pray for their humility to repent of their sins and abominations, enlightenment in the grace and truth of our Lord Jesus Christ and flee Israel during WW3.

But The End Is Not Yet (CE04)

Mat 24:6-7a   "And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and

Kingdom against Kingdom

All these end time rumours of war concerning kingdom against kingdom (US Vs Iran, China, Russia; EU Vs Russia; North Korea Vs Japan, South Korea; middle East complexes; etc.) will mean that in the middle East - Israel, Egypt and possibly Saudi Arabia will be involved in the attack of Persia (Iran and allies) in the last days.

But the end is not yet

The Lord warned us that all these wars will be so deadly, intensive, with hundreds of millions killed, etc. that it is just like the end of the world.

PLO-Israel Peace Treaty

The abominable Peace Treaty signed in 1993 was the start of:-

  • Last Generation (Luke 21:29-32)
  • The Seven Seals (Rev 6)
  • Beginning of Sorrows (Mat 24:4-8)

From the understanding of Rev 6 concerning the Seven Seals:-

  • Seal 1 - 1993 Treaty (Deception)
  • Seal 2 - 1994 Rwandan Genocide
  • Seal 3 - Since 1997, disparity of income getting greater and greater.
  • Seal 4 - World War 3 with a quarter of mankind killed. To be fulfilled.

Rev 6:7-8  When He opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, “Come and see.” So I looked, and behold, a pale (green) horse. And the name of him who sat on it was Death, and Hades followed with him. And power was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, with hunger, with death, and by the beasts of the earth.
 
The fourth seal is the pale or green (colour for Islam) horse.
Rider is Death - suggesting that multitudes will be killed,
Hades following him - indicating that all those killed are destined to damnation.
A quarter of human killed - this must be the worst world war with almost 2 billion people killed by:-
By sword - suggesting warfare
By hunger - famines, floods, nuclear disasters.
By death - plagues, earthquakes, a tsunamis, WMD (nuclear bomb), pestilences, etc.
By beast - infested or hungry animals (dogs, rats, etc.)

Mat 24:6-8  And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.
 
The Fourth Seal (WW3) will fulfill the end of the period of the beginning of Sorrows with a quarter of mankind killed.

The Fifth Seal (martyrdom of saints) will correspond to Mat 24:9 onwards.
Mat 24:9  "Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake."

1Pet 4:17a  For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God;
   
During WW3, God will kill all false christs, false prophets, depraved pastors and leaders, etc. who will be cast into Hades. With all these wolves killed, God can then prepare His people to face and overcome the period of Sorrows (martyrdom) and become the bride of the Lamb.

Brethren, avoid God's judgment by fleeing from heresies and distorted truth, and also from worldliness, covetousness, selfishness and all abominable practices. Obey His words and keep His commandments by loving one another as Jesus had loved us. Stay under God's pleasure by being wise virgins, faithful servants and sheep in Mat 25 before the coming World War 3, which is imminent.

Kingdom Against Kingdom (CE03)

Mat 24:6-7a  "And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and

Kingdom against Kingdom
 
Since WW2, the powerful and rich US using UN Human rights (the West) had been slowly imposing some abominable and unacceptable rules. Towards the end of the century, this started the suspicious relationship between the West (US as the big bully) and the rest of the world (esp the Muslim and Communist world).

On Sept 11, 2001 al Qaeda terrorists attacked Pentagon and brought down the twin towers killing 3K people. 14 out of the 19 involved were Saudis (Wahhabi Muslim). Osama bin Laden founded 'Al Qaeda' in Saudi Arabia in 1988.

Immediately President Bush condemned Iran, Iraq (for conquering Kuwait in 1990) and North Korea as 'Axles of evil' but not the rich Saudi Arabia (the real Islamic extremist). US invaded Afghanistan on Oct 7, to get Osama bin Laden. On March 20, 2003, US invaded Iraq, wrongly accusing Iraq (even though Sunni doesn't associate with Wahhabi) of assisting al Qaeda and also in possession of WMD.

After the death of Saddam Hussein (Sunni), Zarqawi merged with al Qaeda to form 'Al Qaeda in Iraq', the present IS, who promised to destroy US and the West for mistakenly destroying Iraq who had no WMD. US warned Iran of the possibly of attack on their nuclear sites if there were signs of Iran making WMD (nuclear bomb).

Rumours of Wars

Since the formation of the nation of Israel, the neighbouring Arab states had been threatening to annihilate Israel. Their few futile attempts and subsequent defeats were costly and humiliating to them.

After the revolution and removal of the Shah of Persia (a puppet of US) in 1979, the new Islamic Republic of Iran was targeted by US as an enemy. Iraq (an ally of US then) then attacked Iran and the war lasted from 1980-1988. US and UN had been trying to destroy Iran nuclear sites by sending IAEA to verify their compliances.

However, leakage of Iran secretly making the nuclear bomb sent Israel, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and the rest of the Muslim Sunni world into the 'panic drive', and they called for the destruction of all Iranian's nuclear sites. On Nov 8, 2011, as the world awaited IAEA's news of Iran intention​ of making nuclear weapon and rumours of Israel supported by Saudi Arabia imminent attack of Iran nuclear sites, heavy snowfalls covered Teheran and many parts of Iran preventing any aerial attack.

In recent years, the new favorable nuclear deals of US and UN with Iran enraged the neighbouring Arab nations.

2015 Feb 26, “The Saudis have declared their readiness for the Israeli Air Force to overfly Saudi air space en route to attack Iran if an attack is necessary,” an unnamed senior European diplomat was cited as saying by Israel’s Channel 2 News.

An Egyptian television personality sent Israel some strong signs of support for any possible Jewish state move that could lead to an attack on Iran, telling Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu bluntly: Go ahead and bomb.
 
These are the fulfillments of bible prophecies of wars and rumours of wars in the last days.

Brethren, the next prophecy is for all these things must come to pass and how and when will they be fulfilled, but the end is not yet.

Nation Against Nation (CE02)

Mat 24:6-7a   "And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. *For nation will rise against nation*, and kingdom against kingdom."_
 
If kingdom means a country rules by a king (President or Prime Minister), then nation will be a tribe or group of people. So nation against nation will be civil unrests, protests, wars, rebellions, etc. caused by political, racial, tribal, religious, financial, etc. sources.

Arab Spring
 
The series of demonstrations and protests across the Middle East and North Africa that commenced in December 2010, became known as the "Arab Spring. Within a short period of 3 months, almost all Muslim countries ( surrounding Israel) were involved in this 'Arab Spring':-

Country                        2010

Tunisia                         Dec 18
Algeria                         Dec 29

                                    2011

Lebanon                       Jan 12
Jordan                          Jan 14
Mauritania                   Jan 17
Sudan                          Jan 17
Oman                          Jan 17
Yemen                         Jan 18
Saudi                           Jan 21
Egypt/Saudi Arabia    Jan 25
Syria                           Jan 26
Djiboti                        Jan 28
Morocco                     Jan 30
Iraq                             Feb 10
Bahrain                       Feb 14
Iran                             Feb 14
Libya                          Feb 15
Kuwait                        Feb 18

(Many governments gave economic concessions, removal of some restrictions, etc. to ease problems.)

This 'Arab Spring' is the fulfillment of 'Rumours of nations rising against nations' whereby the public had expressed their dissatisfactions with their governments and their desires for change.

all these things must come to pass

The Arab Spring developed into the Arab Uprisings with civil wars and rebellions in many Arab countries. By the end of February 2012, rulers had been forced from power in Tunisia, Egypt and Libya; civil uprisings had erupted in Bahrain and Syria; major protests had broken out in Algeria, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Morocco, and Sudan.

All these civil wars and rebellions were caused by the infighting between the various factions of Islam (Shia, Sunni and Wahhabi) fulfilling prophecy of 'Nation against nation'. Many of these countries settled their problems in various ways with some of the heads of States being sentenced to death or killed.

Libya suffered very badly during the revolution with its leader and some family's members killed mercilessly. Yemen is facing ruin with Saudi Arabia supporting the rebels. The authorities in the land of Syria and Iraq are still fighting ISIS a group of ultra extremists with mad killers.

but the end is not yet
 
This clearly states that some of these religious wars will be so intensive, cruel, extensive, etc. that those found there, will be living in hell as though it is the end of the world. This was the case found in Syria and Iraq.

When ISIS (Sunni Wahhabi​ extremists - former al Qaeda) took over a large part of the land and declared the Caliphate, they brutally murdered many non extremists including Shia, moderate Sunni Muslims and non-Muslims. Women were raped and sold as sex slaves.

All retaken towns in both Syria and Iraq were in complete ruins. Factories and oil fields were set on fire causing health hazards. Many of those wanting to flee were brutally killed. Civilians including women and children were used as human shields. Estimates that more than 25℅ of population killed.

Why?
 
Iraq and Syria are moving towards fulfilling end time Bible prophecies.

Wars And Rumours Of Wars (CE01)

Mat 24:4-6a  And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars."
 
The beginning of this Millennium revealed the numerous false christs  or antichrists which are obvious to Christians. These are the gay and lesbian bishops, a host of sodomite pastors (an abomination) from different denominations and also many multimillionaire pastors, prophets and televangelists (lovers of Mammon). Repent brethren, if you are still their followers.

1John 2:18-19  Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, so when ( ~even now~) many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour. They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us; but they went out that they might be made manifest, that none of them were of us.
 
Before the appearance of the Antichrist (the man of sin), many antichrists or false christs will appear and will deceive many Christians. These antichrists were Christians before, but God ensures that their abominable practices and sins are manifested so that we can recognize them and not be deceived.

And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars

On Sept 11, 2001 al Qaeda terrorists attacked Pentagon and brought down the twin towers killing 3K people. 14 out of the 19 involved were Saudis (Wahhabi Muslim). Osama bin Laden founded 'Al Qaeda' in Saudi Arabia in 1988. So US invaded Afghanistan on Oct 7, to capture Osama bin Laden.

On March 20, 2003, US invaded Iraq, wrongly accusing Iraq (even though Sunni doesn't associate with Wahhabi) of assisting al Qaeda and also in possession of WMD. After the death of Saddam Hussein (Sunni), Zarqawi merged with al Qaeda to form 'Al Qaeda in Iraq', the present IS, who vowed to destroy Israel and also US and the West for wrongly annihilating Iraq who had no WMD.
 
The powerful and rich US and the West using UN Human rights had been imposing many abominable and unacceptable rules esp to the middle Eastern nations since WW2 (otherwise they will face sanctions).

  1. Election - this is unbiblical for God appoints His kings. The king then appoints his ministers to help govern the country.
  2. Equality of Women - this is not acceptable in the Islam religion
  3. Children's Rights - is demonic for parents must bring up their children to be God-fearing and holy.
  4. Sodomy - sodomy is perversion and an abomination, for it threatens our survival.
  5. Same sex marriage is an abomination for it threatens to destroy humanity and His ordination in the propagation of the human race.

Over the years these have built up into hatred for US and the West for imposing these unacceptable so called human rights against their culture and belief, and many of the Muslims in these countries have vowed to attack and destroy US, the West and their supporters. The Iranians are vocal with 'Death to US' is common in every protest.
   
The Islamic Arab nations have been trying to destroy the nation of Israel since its formation in 1948. Iran again threatens to annihilate Israel with its first nuclear bomb with Israel threatening to destroy all Iranian nuclear sites since the beginning of this decade.

Brethren, this 'rumours of wars' is rampant and has fulfilled prophesies. Next prophecy to be fulfilled will be 'Nation against nation'
