I will gather all the nations to Jerusalem to fight against it; the city will be captured, the houses ransacked, and the women raped. Half of the city will go into exile, but the rest of the people will not be taken from the city. - Zechariah 14 : 2
The Mediterranean Sea has witnessed and produced several diverse civilizations and empires that have 'risen and fallen' throughout the centuries; like : The Babylonian Empire, the Medo-Persian Empire, the Egyptian Civilization, the Greek Empire and the only one that devoured them all : The Roman Empire !!! For several centuries the Mediterranean Sea was like a 'Roman Lake' ( Mare Nostrum*) surrounded on all sides by a very dominant Roman military presence; both by land and sea !!! The Mediterranean, connects 3 Continents and 22 nations presently border it and according to Bible Prophecy the Mediterranean Sea and the entire region will be the EPICENTER of some of the most intense fighting in the upcoming wars before Armageddon and without question it will also be the site of a nuclear showdown between the endtimes 'Little Horn' and nuclear Israel and according to the inferences of Zechariah; Israel will in the end pursue the 'Samson Option' when all will seem that Israel has no other option !!! ( Revelation 16 : 3 & Zechariah 14 : 12 ) ( Israel has a handful of nuclear capable dolphin class submarines and it is very likely that Israel will opt to launch its 'Submarine-Launched Ballistic Missiles' ( SLBM's ) with nuclear warheads when it will appear that the Beast and its Little Horn seem unstoppable and unbeatable !!! ( Because when 66% of Jews are wiped out by the Beast and his killer minions you better believe that what will be left alive of the Israeli government will surely authorize a nuclear retaliation of some kind in the very end !!! ) This insignificant student of Bible Prophecy and somewhat of a 'Semi-Expert' on Daniel's 4th Beast ( Thee Final Dominant World Empire led by 10 King's ) 'CONFIRMS' that thee final manifestation of the 4th Roman Beast 'SHALL' arise once again and for the last time in that specific region of planet earth ( Mediterranean Sea ) during the Tribulation period !!!
There are presently 195 nation states on planet earth today according to the latest CIA Factbook. Of those 195 countries a little over half of them are considered 'Third World Countries.' ( Non-Aligned with NATO or Russia and underdeveloped ) Presently the people of Catalonia ( Spain ) and the Kurds located in the borders of : Syria, Iraq & Turkey are themselves trying to become the 196 and 197 independent nation states themselves !!! ( but neither Spain nor France will allow Catalonia's independence, nor will : Iraq, Syria or Turkey will permit Kurds their independence !!! ) Thee final 10 King's of Daniel and Revelation will be produced by the people and nations in the Mediterranean region !!! ( The rest of the 185 nations of this planet will be greatly devastated politically and economically by the Trumpet and Seal judgements of GOD Almighty during that time and so will the final 10 King's 'BUT' they will have some UNHOLY sense and agenda and will acknowledge to one another that divided they will most certainly fall and fail, they will pool their military and economic power to survive the worst period in all of human history, in contrast to most of the other nations of this planet during that time; those 10 King's will be of one mind !!! ( Revelation 17 : 13 ) Let's be truthful; the Arab League is a joke and so is the United Nations; the blunt truth is that the most violent and ruthless threats of this planet could care less about the World Court ( Like : Iran, North Korea, Islamic Terrorist Organizations*) they only understand MILITARY FORCE and unfortunately that is where this planet is headed; into World War III brought about by the 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse !!! ( Revelation 6 : 4 )
While : Elon Musk, the Apple Corporation, the Sony Corporation, Bill Gates, Putin, the Chinese Communist Party, the Disney Corporation and numerous International Bankers and other Cabalistic Groups may have their 20 or 30 years plans for this planet; GOD ALMIGHTY has HIS very own SOVEREIGN plans and GOD could care less about the future plans of the godless and the wicked !!! ( Job 20 : 5 -7 ) GOD is executing His Holy Judgement upon millions of millions+ of Fallen Angels and Billions+ of unrepentant human sinners on this planet and 'NO' one will escape the HOLY and RIGHTEOUS Judgement and Wrath of GOD ALMIGHTY in the 'here and now' and in eternity too; truly there is JUSTICE in this Universe !!! Most global experts on finance and trade are prematurely predicting with great excitement that the future belongs to CHINA 'BUT' that's 'NOT' what the Biblical Prophecies guarantee; the truth is that we have run out of time; the 'Times of the Gentiles' is coming to a complete end !!! GOD has 'NOT' forgotten the godless Chinese Communist government; very truly GOD ALMIGHTY will bring them to their very knees too, during the Tribulation period !!!
This map demonstrates how 'NEITHER' the Babylonian Empire nor the Medo-Persian Empire managed to conquer the Italian Peninsula ( both; the Babylonian & Medo-Persian Empires were Pagan and not Islamic*) where the epicenter of the 4th Roman Beast would later emerge from : Rome 'BUT' Rome did later CONQUER all of the 3 previous Beasts, so it is that the 4th Roman Beast DEVOURED the other Beasts before it as well as Israel and Jerusalem too !!! ( Daniel 7 : 23 ) In other words, Islam in all its embodiments of : nations / terrorist groups is 'NOT' destined nor prophesied to conquer Israel nor Jerusalem and much less the rest of the world EVER !!!
The Biblical Prophecies guaranteed that there would be 4 Gentile Empires that would conquer Jerusalem and the Jewish people all the way until the end of the age. We all know that the Babylonian Beast was defeated and devoured by the Medo-Persian Beast and that the Grecian Beast later itself conquered and devoured the Medo-Persian Beast and finally that the 4th and final Roman Beast conquered most of the Mediterranean region; Israel and its capital : Jerusalem included !!! The Biblical Prophecies 'GUARANTEE' that the endtimes 4th Beast will be thee only POWER that will be able to once again CONQUER Jerusalem and the Jewish people during the endtimes !!! ( Amos 9 : 14-15 )
Let us 'NOT' make the mistake of believing that the Tribulation period ( Final 7 Years*) will be ONLY for the original chosen people of GOD on this planet : The Jews. Yes, unfortunately it is Prophesied that 66% of the Jewish population will perish 'BUT' according to the Prophecies of Revelation an almost equal percentage, over 60% + of the world's gentile population will ALSO perish !!! As GOD and GOD alone brings this creation into JUDGEMENT !!! Justice is coming; 'NO' one breaks GOD's commandments and escapes His HOLY WRATH; 'NOT' : Corrupt politicians, Mafiosos, Cartels, Totalitarians, Child Molesters, Kidnappers, Gangsters and other numerous unrepentant sinners !!! GOD is going to EXECUTE His HOLY Judgement upon all of the living and then some !!! Very truly, the wicked shall NOT stand with any excuse in the day of judgement before their CREATOR !!! ( Psalm 1 : 5 )
The Mediterranean Sea, presently is being occupied by 4 Nuclear Powers : Russia, NATO, Israel and France. This is the same Sea where the Apostle John in the Island of Patmos witnessed a Beast with 7 Heads and 10 Horns arising out of the Sea and it most certainly was 'NOT' arising in the South China Sea nor in the Baltic Sea 'BUT' West of Israel and Jerusalem !!!
The Book of Revelation speaks of 'The Kingdom of the Beast' ( Revelation 16 : 10 ) This student of Bible Prophecy wants to make it perfectly clear that very fortunately the endtimes 'Little Horn' will 'NOT' be able to subjugate every single nation on planet earth during the Tribulation period !!! Yes, the Prophecies of Daniel and Revelation guarantee that that final 4th Beast will 'DEVOUR' the whole world 'BUT' the Biblical Prophecies themsleves are able to interpret themselves; and according to Daniel 11 : 41 there will be several countries on this planet that will 'NOT' totally succumb to the final 'Little Horn.'
Thee 'hottest region' on planet earth during the final 7 year Tribulation period will without question be EPICENTERED in the : MEDITERRANEAN REGION !!! Anyone with a map can quickly find out that what 'ALL' Four Beasts of Daniel have in common is that they were all Mediterranean Regional Empires !!! This student of Bible Prophecy knows fully well that the 4th & final Beast will 'NOT' be the exception geographically speaking !!! The 4th and final Beast of Daniel will be DIVERSE from the other 3 Beast that it preceded in that it will be headed not by ONE powerful Babylonian King or ONE Roman Caesar 'BUT' it will be governed by 10 King's according to both Daniel and Revelation !!!
This student of Bible Prophecy has seen numerous people through the years totally misunderstand and greatly underestimate the MAGNITUDE and SCOPE of what it will be like during the final 7 years ( Tribulation Period ) !!! As it is presently; almost half of the nations of this planet can barely produce enough food to feed their own citizens and over half of the world's population 'PRESENTLY' has no access to clean drinkable water !!! ( Most people in 3rd world countries are drinking very contaminated water !!! ) History has shown us over and over again that most cities of this world will be 'DEATH TRAPS' to millions of people once the Tribulation period begins; solely because once the Supermarket trucks stop delivering food to urban supermarkets people will : riot and steal, kill & destroy one another just to survive !!! Even the United Nations will be even 'MORE' useless during the Tribulation period because as it is it has failed to address the Syrian and Middle East Conflict itself; the truth is that it will take a great MILITARY FORCE and IRON TEETH to force and enforce the 'COVENANT with the MANY' during the beginning of the Tribulation period !!!
Presently in this year of 2017 the European Union has 'NO' official capital nor does it have any plans to declare one in the near future 'BUT' Brussels, Belgium is by 'de facto' considered considered the unofficial capital of the EU because it is home to several key institutions of the EU such as : The European Commission, The Council of the European Union as well as serving as the most important seat of the European Parliament as well as being the administrative headquarters of NATO too !!! This student of Bible Prophecy knows that Brussels, Belgium will 'NOT' end up being the final administrative epicenter of the European Union in the future; the OVERWHELMING Biblical evidence 'GUARANTEES' that the final endtimes 'Little Horn' will change it elsewhere ( Daniel 11 : 45 )
This student of Bible Prophecy is well aware of the fact that 'SOME' teachers of Bible Prophecy are teaching that 'ALL' nations will be conquered by the endtimes Beast and forced to accept the 666 Mark 'BUT' there are several passages and Prophecies in the Holy Scriptures that reveal to us that 'NOT' all nations will totally surrender to the endtimes Hitler !!! Yes, the endtimes Little Horn will definitely use ECONOMIC SANCTIONS as well as other 'Carrot and Stick' political and economic tricks and incentives to try and bring as many nations under his unholy agenda as possible !!!
This student of Bible Prophecy has considered numerous times what atheists and non-believers think about the Bible and its Prophecies. And without any bias, I can 'NOT' understand how anyone can 'NOT' see that something terribly went WRONG in this Fallen Creation a long time ago !!! ( the entrance of : sin, death, disease, suffering, curses just as the Book of Genesis declares*) We are all witnessing how the Middle East Conflict is ESCALATING via the exportation of GLOBAL ISLAMIC TERRORISM and make no mistake about it, if Israel didn't exist there still would be Islamic Terrorism !!! The heart of all men who have not been REDEEMED by the Blood of JESUS Christ are inherently all WICKED !!!
One great example of 'Misinterpretation' is found in Daniel 2 : 39, according to the Prophecy; the 3rd Grecian Beast would rule all the earth 'BUT' we know that this is to be interpreted as a 'figure of speech' we know historically that Alexander the Great did 'NOT' conquer : South America, North America and several other parts of this planet 'BUT' what is key is that it most DEFINITELY did unfortunately conquered Jerusalem !!! ( What all four Beast of Daniel achieved is the military conquest of Jerusalem and the Final endtimes Roman Little Horn will very unfortunately reprise somewhat what the Roman General Titus accomplished against Jerusalem and its Jewish population in 70 A.D. !!! ( The world of most people living back then consisted of less than 100 miles, remember there was 'NO' mass transit, no cars, airplanes, fast ships etc; most people lived and died within 100 miles of their place of birth back then * )
This student of Bible Prophecy wants to warn everyone that the present European Union will most DEFINITELY will 'NOT' be forever as : INDECISIVE, WEAK and OPEN to all as it presently is !!! The future Kingdom of the Beast will be a TOTALITARIAN POLICE STATE and will very unfortunately eclipse and succeed where Hitler and the NAZI's failed in the past !!! War, Riots, Persecution, Economic Earthquakes and Ethnic Conflicts are going to TRANSFORM the present European Union into that unforgiving and devouring Beast described by the Prophet Daniel and the Book of Revelation !!! - Mario Romano, somewhat of a semi-expert on the 4th Roman Hybrid and very Unholy Endtimes Beast !!!
This 4th Beast Watchman with 20 years experience; has heard past European Politicians through the years admitting that one of the possible ways of fixing the Middle East conflict would be by possibly inviting Israel provisionally into some form of a : Mediterranean Union or European Union or even as a member of NATO itself !!! Something like that would appear to make sense because some teachers of Bible Prophecy have taught for decades that Jerusalem may one day become the headquarters of the final 'Little Horn' and that is why the Israeli government will have let its 'guard down' when it comes to the 'Little Horn.' They will have believed the lie that as a Western leader he is there to look after their : interests, security and defense when in fact he is just waiting and plotting of how to fully conquer the State of Israel & especially Jerusalem its capital !!!
By : Mario Romano. This unworthy servant of JESUS CHRIST clearly understands that he is one of a very few individuals and servants of GOD ALMIGHTY out of literally billions+ that are teaching and warning anyone who will listen about how EVERYTHING and EVERYONE on this planet; whether they like it or not, or believe it or not are 'ALL' interconnected to the fate and destiny of : Israel, Jerusalem and its Jewish population !!! ( You, me and every living thing on this planet are ONLY still breathing on this planet because GOD decreed a certain amount of time for the 'Times of the Gentiles' before HE finally and FULLY addresses Israel's rebellion during the 70th Week of Daniel *) All of human history has led us all up to what is coming and you better believe that this unworthy servant of JESUS CHRIST is most definitely 'NOT' going to let the powers of DARKNESS overcome him nor overwhelm him in these final days !!! In thee name of thee LIVING GOD; this vessel of JESUS CHRIST is going to 'SHINE, SHINE & SHINE' as never before with this 'little light' that was deposited in me by my CREATOR : GOD Thee HOLY GOD of ISRAEL !!!
