..."The end will come like a flood : War will continue until the end." - Daniel 9:26
..."In Daniel 9 :26; the Angel Gabriel is specifically revealing to the Prophet Daniel who was himself a casualty of war ( exile*) of the Babylonian conquest of Judah, that the future of his people and of Israel and Jerusalem itself will be decided by one war after another all the way until the final 70th Week or final 7 years !!!" - Mario Romano
The recent decision of U.S. President Donald Trump to recognize Jerusalem as the official capital of Israel sent political SHOCKWAVES 'NOT' only throughout the 45+ Islamic capitals and throughout many secret anti-semitic countries 'BUT' also throughout the vast unseen SPIRITUAL WORLD !!! The epicenter of all of Bible Prophecy is Jerusalem, Israel and its final destiny and ladies and gentlemen when President Trump made that bold declaration it just seemed to this student of Bible Prophecy that Satan and all of his unholy minions all were forced to stop dead in their tracks to reassess that their time here on earth : killing, stealing, destroying and deceiving most of humanity is getting ever and ever shorter !!! When President Trump boldly recognized Jerusalem as the official capital of Israel and of its Jewish inhabitants, it seemed to this student of Bible Prophecy that something like a giant nuclear spiritual explosion of light pierced through the darkness that now seems to 'spiritually blind' and dominate most of the world's nations and at least for a moment exposed Satan and his demonic agenda for what it truly is and that is : Anti-Israeli, Anti-Biblical and outright Anti-GOD !!! ( Just days after Trump recognized Jerusalem's TRUE BIBLICAL role, the United Nations voted overwhelmingly to condemn and reject President Trump's decision; Mario Romano is 'NO' Prophet 'BUT' you better believe that GOD's wrath and judgement during the Tribulation period on those 128 nations who voted against Jerusalem's Biblical role will be a little bit harsher !!! )
Any and every true believer in Jesus Christ who was 'Watching and Praying' in this 2017 acknowledges that the 'Convergence' of Bible Prophecy events and political players prophesied in the Holy Scriptures for these last days appears to be manifesting themselves on the world stage as never before.
We 'ALL' would like for world peace to prevail, we would all like for all wars to end 'BUT' the reality of 'Fallen Man' whose : heart and mind is corrupted by SIN; & full of : revenge, lust, greed and violence in this 'Fallen Planet' will 'NEVER' allow world peace to be made possible for too long !!! Long before most of us were even born mankind had already fought two massive World Wars that literally affected most of the nations of planet earth in one way or another.
You and I, as students of Bible Prophecy know where all of the UNFORGIVEN : hatred, revenge and animosity is all headed especially in the Middle East. As believers we all would like for our Arab friends and our Jewish Israeli friends to forgive one another and hug each other and forget about their violent past. 'UNFORTUNATELY' something of that magnitude throughout all of the recorded military conflicts in human history has not taken place. The 'Blunt Truth' is that Arabs control some 95% of the geography of the Middle East and there are about 45+ Islamic Capitals all over this world; surely the world can support 'ONE JEWISH NATION' and one Jewish Capital !!!
( using real currency- money to purchase fake money*) or better yet more like a 'Pumped Up' penny stock that when it reaches its high is quickly dumped, those still holding lose almost everything meanwhile those who sold and made riches find yet another way to pump it yet again !!! Crypto currencies are 'NOT' backed up by any governmental financial guarantees and very recently several Bitcoin Exchanges have been HACKED in the past and have quickly sought bankruptcy relief !!! The Book of Revelation does guarantee that the global economic system 'WILL' collapse in the future Revelation 17 : 18, this student of Bible Prophecy does believe that 'Super Computers' and a new type of digital currency will be launched by the few remaining world powers during the Tribulation period; presently the only thing driving up the worth of $BITCOIN is human GREED !!! $Bitcoin owners in the U.S. are now themselves being sought after by the IRS, $Bitcoin profits are considered taxable by the IRS; in sum $Bitcoin is one of the biggest financial 'Bubbles' of this 2017 and all bubbles usually explode !!!
As 2017 comes to a close, the world and especially the Military Leadership of the armies of this planet witnessed that a highly mechanized and highly technologically advanced army such as the Russian Armed Forces in Syria can DECIMATE and OBLIVERATE any Terrorist force when the political leadership gives them the full green light to wage UNRESTRICTED WARFARE and when there are few 'Rules of Engagement' !!! Truly, ISIS was 'NO' match for their even more ruthless Russian counterparts who seemingly dominated most of the Syrian airspace as well as the rest of the Syrian battlespace via the somewhat and very highly accurate Russian missile guided systems employed there against Isis Targets !!! ( Yes, not all of Russia's guided missiles were/are all that accurate; but the Russian's don't really care about collateral damage; they know its a part of the fog of war*) Just as GOD used the British Empire and General Allenby in the past during World War I to defeat the Ottoman Empire and drive out the Turks out of the Holy Land to get it ready for the 'RETURN' of His chosen people; GOD is utilizing the USA and President Trump as well as Russia's Putin to ready the Middle East for the next upcoming Prophetic events !!! The days in which ruthless mobs of ISIS soldiers openly paraded with numerous Toyota trucks and chopped off the heads of numerous believers and other opponents of ISIS are over; ISIS had 'NO' monopoly over the use of violence and ruthlessness; just study what the Russian military did there and you will understand !!! ( it's too graphic for me to describe the DECIMATION of ISIS Terrorists and their sympathizers !!! )
What should come as 'NO' surprise to any student of Bible Prophecy is the fact that virtually 'ALL' of the Prophesied players mentioned in the Book of Daniel appear to be on the world scene in this very : minute, hour, day, month and year of 2017 !!! The Book of Zechariah and Daniel guarantee that in these last days the world will turn against the Nation of Israel and especially and specifically because of the destiny of JERUSALEM !!!
This year we all witnessed via our T.V. screens 'MOST' of the nations on planet earth vote against Israel in the United Nations. Mr. Erdogan, the leader from Turkey whose very soldiers and police forces have been 'NOT' so secretly killing their very own Kurdish Islamic brothers and sisters had 'the guts' to call Israel a 'Terrorist State' when he himself has ordered the killing of thousands of fellow Islamic Kurds near Turkey !!! Mr. Erdogan is promoting a capital for the Palestinians 'BUT' closer to home he does 'NOT' want any independence nor Capital for the Kurds near Turkey what a hypocrite !!!
Putin, Russia, ISIS, Syria & the Middle East : 2017
Vladimir Putin ( Russia's 'Democratic' Dictator*) as you may now know has officially announced that he will seek re-election for another 6 year term 'surprise, surprise' ???
It is 'NOT' the intent of this student of Bible Prophecy to demonize Mr. Putin nor all of his political and military moves; the truth is that before Putin rose to power Russia was almost on a downward death spiral with Boris Yeltsin; the truth is that 'NO' country can immediately implement a full democratic system after having none for Centuries !!! Putin did bring some 'STABILITY' to Russia at a critical point in its history 'BUT' obviously at a great expense to its young democracy. We must also give some credit for Mr. Putin for 'NOT' allowing some of its nuclear missiles and uranium to have fallen into the hands of Islamic Terrorist groups like some 'Conspiracy Theorists' were warning the world over a decade ago !!! There is no question that Putin is 'NOT' going to remove his armed forces anytime soon in Syria; Putin has big plans for the region and he, Assad and mostly everyone else kind of knows that he owns Syria's Assad and those Russian military bases in Syria very simply because without Putin's help Assad and Syria would have easily fallen into the hands of ISIS !
Pope Francis : Not the Final False Prophet Yet *
This year we also all witnessed the head of the Roman Catholic Church ( the 'Great Whore of Revelation ) via its : Pope Francis, try to involve itself and himself in almost every major crisis on planet earth while at the same time he and his unholy organization : produces, hides and is complicit of untold pedophilia by too many of its Roman Priests all over this world !!! There were even stories of several Roman Catholic Priests who call Pope Francis a 'False Prophet' because of the various anti-biblical positions that he has been supporting such as stating publicly that "All religions lead to GOD' !!! It's not that Pope Francis is a false prophet, the truth is that 'ALL" Roman Catholic Popes were also 'ALL' False Prophets; very simply because they teached that there are many ways to GOD and according to them Jesus Christ is just one of many ways to the Father !!! ( Roman Catholicism teaches that salvation comes via the Church Sacraments, the Eucharist, the Veneration of Mary and through the intercesion of Mary etc...)
The : EU, France and the Middle East
This year we all witnessed a man seemingly emerging out of nowhere; he was even less qualified politically than America's Obama to take office ( Obama had at least been elected to the U.S. Senate and other minor political seats in Chicago*) and 'YET' in one year he has emerged not only as the democratically elected leader of you know what country but also as one of the most relevant leaders of the entire European Union 'BUT' wait in this same year he has SOMEHOW managed also to involve himself in the Middle East Peace Process; now you tell me statistically speaking what are the odds of all of this taking place in one years time ??? And this is his first year in power; can you imagine what he will try to accomplish in his other 4 years in office !!!
The DECIMATION and near ANNIHILATION of Islamic State ( ISIS )
Not too long ago various other teachers and student of Bible Prophecy were predicting an Islamic Caliphate that would somehow gain control of the entire Middle East and then according to them would eventually spread to all of Western Europe 'BUT' Bible Prophecy made 'NO' such a thing remotely possible !!! This student of Bible Prophecy has always interpreted that most of the modern Islamic people's and nations are nothing more than modern day : Philistines, Amorites, Hittites, Canaaninites & others who do 'NOT' compose the 4th Beast of Daniel !!! According to Bible Prophecy the only one who will be able to temporarily CONQUER : Jerusalem and Israel during the Great Tribulation period will be the final 'Little Horn' and he 'SHALL' not be a Muslim horn; the truth is that there are more than enough : bloodthirsthy, ruthless and psychopathic European alpha males who can fulfill that prophetic role in the future, all the Islamic armies and Islamic Terrorist groups have failed Satan in over half a century and Israel is still standing; Satan is setting his sights on a future nuclear Rome of 10 !!! 'Shame' on all of those teachers and student of Bible Prophecy who are promoting such a false teaching when we all know that the 4th Beast was ROMAN and there is 'NO' Biblical precedent for it to transform itself into an Islamic 4th Beast !!! ( Jeremiah 13 : 23 ) Sorry, Mr. Erdogan and Turkey are 'NO' nuclear powers, the world is not going to surrender at their feet; 'NO' standing army of one or two million soldiers is any match for one nuclear missile headed their way !!!
Israel at 70 : 1948 - 2018
If you know the Biblical Prophecies you are fully aware of GOD's numbers and patterns. In this upcoming year of 2018 the State of Israel will have its 70 Anniversary and historically and Biblically speaking the number 70 holds somewhat of a special time marker for the Jewish people ( 70 weeks Daniel, 70 years in Babylon etc..) Being that the Prince of Rosh from the land of Gog appears to be strategically positioned in Syria and in the Mediterranean Sea to make his moves and being that the Prince of the People of the 4th Beast could potentially be also getting ready; as serious students of Bible Prophecy we could or could not witness a MAJOR prophecy being fulfilled this year due to all the CONVERGING world events taking place all around us !!!
America's DECLINE and Bible Prophecy
This student of Bible Prophecy has studied 'Patterns' of judgement that GOD our Creator has imparted to rebellious : people's, tribes, empires and nations throughout recorded human history ( GOD is Very, Very fair !!! ) and UNFORTUNATELY in order for the 4th and Final manifestation of the 4th Roman Beast to Arise from the Mediterranean Region once again in the FUTURE, the United States as we presently know them in this December of 2017 'MUST' decline Economically and Militarily in the not too distant future !!! Fortunately, the United States will 'NOT' be sole and total encarnation of the 4th and Final Roman Beast. America is 'NOT' any of the 4 Beast of Daniel simply put because the USA is 'NOT' bent on the : Conquest of Israel and of Jerusalem like all the other 4 Beasts were in the past !!! It appears that America will at a minimum follow in the footsteps of the British Empire in that once the British Empire declined in power it was "NOT" totally destroyed, it just became somewhat of an 'Isolationist' regional power, even if a nuclear attack would come against America, the US Military has a Nuclear Triad that would respond with a nuclear response as well against the identified enemy in a timely manner; 'YES' GOD's final judgement is coming upon 'ALL' the nations 'BUT' GOD will show more mercy against the few nations that choose to support the Nation of Israel in the Tribulation Period !!! ( Revelation 21 : 24 ) As sinful as America is, the United States also continues to be one of the few nations who is spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ as no other nation on earth and even though 'one too many' of American churches may be on the edge of Apostasy; GOD still has a small REMNANT of faithful believers scattered all over the United States who fear His WORD and His Commandments and who have 'NOT' bowed down to the god of 'politically correctness' nor to the unholy and perverted god of the LGBT movement 'ANY' and all humans who die in sin will inherit the fires of hell be it the sin of : adultery, fornication, homosexuality or lesbianism; sin is 'SIN' and 'WE' must REPENT and change our ways if we want to get right with our HOLY CREATOR; those who are proud about their sin, will die in their sins just as surely as those in Sodom and Gomorrah !!!
In conclusion, the President of the United States; President Trump is truly 'NOT' perfect; in fact he may not be a born again believer 'BUT' there is some fear of GOD still inside of him that surely is 'NOT' present in some 100+ other world leaders who VOTED against Israel recently in the United Nations. This useless servant of GOD knows very well that GOD Himself is taking 'EVERYTHING' done against Israel and the Jews into consideration when His HOLY Judgements mentioned in the Book of Revelation begin to be rolled out against all the nations of this planet in the not too distant future !!! U.S. President Trump was put in power by GOD ALMIGHTY and His Watchers ( Daniel 4 : 17 ) just as much as former President Obama in the past; although Mr. Trump's personal life may be full of questionable things 'NO' other world leader that GOD used in the past was truly HOLY; even King David's life was replete with : rape, conspiracy and murder ( 2 Samuel 11: 5-27 ) this does 'NOT' excuse Mr. Trump's sins of the past 'BUT' most other world leaders have an even much worse record than Mr. Trump with : women, minorities and their countries finances; just take a look at how much worse women are treated in most of the Islamic world and how most African Presidents have looted their national coffers and even how some Muslim leaders such as Mr. Erdogan and others have no problem killing other Muslims such as the Kurds; 'NO' Mr. Trump is not perfect but at least He is 'NOT' a clear enemy of GOD ALMIGHTY as are 'MOST' of the spineless world leaders on this planet who recently voted against Jerusalem and sided with the other 40+ Islamic nations !!!
By : Mario Romano. This servant of GOD is 'NO' warmonger; in a perfect world war would not exist 'BUT' our reality is that we live and exist in a very violent fallen planet. Biblically speaking people and nations 'DO' have the right to defend themselves against evil in any and all ways shapes or forms !!! King David himself was a prime example of this; King David was a man after GOD's own heart and yet he had to take and use the SWORD to defend his people and his nation against the wiles of : unholy, violent and the heartless military offensive actions of Pagan tribes, nations and peoples that surrounded Israel in his day and who sought the very annihilation or the slavery of the Jewish people !!! This human being wishes 'NO' evil upon anyone created in the very Image of GOD our CREATOR 'BUT' GOD Himself created physical and spiritual laws that must come to pass once human beings break His laws !!!
