QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS ABOUT THESE ENDTIMES
As you may already be aware, there are numerous 'Interpretations' about the Book of Revelation and the prophecies contained therein. In this weeks article we will attempt to 'Answer' some of the top and most common questions of Bible Prophecy that most people ask.
Although it is true that knowledge alone in the Biblical Prophecies will 'NOT' save any human soul 'IGNORANCE' of them can 'Spiritually Blind' you like most of Judaism who failed to correctly interpret and believe in the numerous prophecies of thee one before them some 2000 years ago : Messiah : Jesus Christ !!!
This is 'NOT' an advertisement 'BUT' we do recommend Amir Tsarfati's new book : 'The Last Hour.' That has just been released this month of September. Brother Amir resides in Israel and he definitely has a much better 'Finger on the Pulse of the Middle East' than most of us who reside thousands of miles away from the prophetic epicenter of it all : Israel.
Question # 1. Will the 'Man of Sin' be of Jewish blood/ Lineage ?
Answer : Having heard numerous other 'Christian Apologists' answer this question on : Christian Radio, T.V. and Internet websites; and the fact that 'Antiochus Epiphanes' a 'Type and Figure' of the final 'Man of Sin' was "NOT" Jewish leads this student of Bible Prophecy to believe that he will "NOT" be a practicing Jew nor of Jewish blood. Both Amir Tsarfati and Jonathan Cahn who have a Jewish background themselves and understand Jewish culture as well as 'Orthodox Judaism' much more than most of us agree that 'NO' the 'Man of Sin' does "NOT" have to be Jewish. WE also have to understand that Israel will obviously "NOT" end up accepting that 'Man of Sin' because when he does finally declare himself to be 'GOD' during the 'Abomination of Desolation' most Jews will realize that he sure is 'NO' Jewish Messiah. Additionally, the TWO Witnesses will also warn Israel of such a man early on; the 'Man of Sin' will early on 'SEEM' to be Israel's greatest friend in the West 'BUT' it will only be temporary. Former President : Bill Clinton was affectionally called the first 'Black President' because of his contributions to African -American community and his background growing up in a poor single family household etc. In a likewise manner some Jews may begin to call that 'Man' Israel's Messiah affectionately because initially it will appear that he will help to save Israel early on 'BUT' in reality he will be playing Israel.* We should also recognize that 'ALL' four heads/leaders of the 4 Gentile Beasts of Daniel were 'PAGAN' gentile leaders too !!!
Question # 2. When does the Little Horn actually rises to power ?
Answer : This is one of the most challenging questions to most teachers and students of Bible Prophecy. For the most part most teachers of Bible Prophecy taught that the 'Little Horn' could only appear on the world scene AFTER the appearance of the 10 King's of Revelation because according to their interpretation the 'Little Horn' rises after them/ from among them; according to Daniel 7: 8. "BUT" we are also revealed that 'Man of Sin' will 'Confirm the Covenant' with Israel and the many for one week ( 7 Years*) and yet we know from Revelation that the 10 Horns receive power together with the Beast for only 42 months, so when 'ALL' the Prophecies are considered it strongly appears that the 'Little Horn' is already on the world scene 'BEFORE' the rise of the 10 King's except he is rising quietly and is unnoticed by most !!! Additionally, because we know that he is already a 'POWERFUL' European politician 'BEFORE' the start of the 7 year Tribulation; common sense tells us that he will be already in some powerful European position even 'BEFORE' the 7 year Tribulation period begins 'BUT' he will "NOT" yet have all of Satan's diabolical supernatural powers until the final 42 months; this student of Bible Prophecy does lean to the interpretation that the 'Man of Lawlessness' will suffer and survive and assassination attempt sometime midway !!! Stalin, Hitler and numerous other totalitarians used the political system of their day to rise to power and the final 'Little Horn' will do likewise as well !!!
Question # 3. Will the 7 year Tribulation begin immediately after the Rapture of the Church ?
Answer : "NO" There is an 'Undetermined' period of time that 'None' of us knows that will separate the Rapture and the signing of the 'Covenant With the Many.' We do know that the signing begins Daniel's final 7 year Prophetic Week 'BUT' we do not know the time gap between the Rapture and the actual signing of that 'Covenant of Death.' Presently, this student of Bible Prophecy believes that it could possibly be another 42 months ( 3 and a half years to a year minimum*) between the Rapture and the signing of the Covenant.
Question # 4. Will Islam Conquer the World and is Islam the Beast of Revelation as some confused teachers of Bible Prophecy are teaching ?
Answer : "NO" It should be rather obvious to most that Islam is 'Imploding' just take a look at the Middle East; its going to take decades for Iraq and Syria to rebuild if and when the continuing 'Civil Wars' there end and just take a look at the 'Imploding economies of Turkey and Iran' people there are suffering !!! Their currency is buying less and less and you're telling me that 10 Islamic countries are going to unite and form an Islamic Caliphate and devour the whole world as the Prophet Daniel mentions ??? The truth is that most Islamic countries will suffer horrible loses during the upcoming Ezekiel War, we also know that the 'Little Horn' like the ancient Roman Emperors will once again conquer most of the Mediterranean Sea as well as Egypt and finally Israel during the final 42 months !!! ( Daniel 11 : 42 and Zechariah 14 : 2 ) Unfortunately as evil as Islamic Terrorism is Muslims do "NOT" have a monopoly on : treachery, biological, chemical and nuclear weapons and outright malevolance; just study what the NAZI's did to their enemies and also what the Soviets did to theirs under Stalin !!! The research of this student of Bible Prophecy leads him to believe that at the end of the 7 year Tribulation period that only about 20% ( or less *) of the present worldwide Islamic population will still be alive.
Question # 5. Will the USA come to the aid of Israel in the endtimes ?
Answer : "NO" All of my research and simulations indicate at least to this student of Bible Prophecy that GOD is going to sovereignly allow the decline of the USA so that Israel understands once and for all that its salvation is "NOT" dependent on anyone else or any earthly power 'BUT' on GOD alone. Because America holds the most Jews outside of the State of Israel this student of Bible Prophecy believes that Satan is going to persecute and try to eliminate most of the Jews outside of Israel first and then focus all of his attention on Israel in the final 42 months. In other words, something EPIC is going to happen here in the 'States' that will force most Jews in America to return to Israel; what exactly 'NONE' of us knows 'BUT' it should be obvious to most teachers of Bible Prophecy.
Question # 6. Will America suffer a nuclear attack by Russia or Islamic Terrorists ?
Answer : This student of Bible Prophecy finds that 'ALL' those who are teaching this in Youtube and are calling themselves 'Prophets of GOD' are 'Clueless' about what a nuclear attack on the USA would entail !!! Stating such a thing is 'Irresponsible.' The USA has a 'Nuclear Triad' in other words America's fleet of : Nuclear Submarines, Aircraft Carriers and Cruisers are spread all over this planet armed with nuclear armed ICBM's ( As well as many American Intelligent resources spread all over this planet*) in case of such a scenario and once the culprits are identified the United States would order a nuclear retaliatory strike that would without question engulf a large portion of this planet in a nuclear war, it's 'NOT' like the USA would go down without a fight; of course there would definitely be 100% nuclear retaliation by America and this is what almost 'ALL' those who promote such 'Visions' do 'NOT' mention !!! ( MAD = Mutual Assured Destruction ) So 'IF' you are going to teach that the U.S. will suffer a nuclear attack you should also consider that another region of this planet is going to suffer from Nuclear Radiation for many years too because American nuclear forces will be retaliating somewhere in the world too !!!
Question # 7. Nobody knows the 'Day nor the Hour' of our LORD's Return ?
Answer : This is one of thee most misinterpreted questions of eschatology "NO" we do not know the exact day nor hour of the Rapture "BUT" when certain events begin to take place it will be very obvious how much time everyone 'Left Behind' will have left. Example: when the 'Abomination of Desolation' takes place the world only has 42 months plus a few extra days added according to all the prophecies before the 'PHYSICAL' appearance of our LORD Jesus Christ on the Mount of Olives and when you start seeing the rise of the 10 Horned Beast in Europe the world won't have more than 4 more years. Additionally, the truth is that 'MOST' of the population of this planet will have perished by the time of the 2nd Coming; around 70% of the present population of this world will have died via : Famines, Total War, Nuclear Radiation, Earthquakes, Plagues, Biological and Chemical Warfare etc !!!
Question # 8. Will the final Beast consist of European and Islamic nations / Iron & Clay ?
Answer : "NO" EUinProphecy.com was one of the first endtimes ministries that focused on the Mediterranean Union and based upon the Prophecies of Daniel we are 'Interpreting' that as 'Kingdom rises Against Kingdom' that the Europeans will launch a military strike against what will be left of the Arab-Islamic nations during the Tribulation period, in other words the European's are 'NOT' sharing power with Muslims 'BUT' like their Roman predecessors, the final Roman Beast will set once again to conquer the Mediterranean and most of the Middle East for Europeans as : Russia, Islam and the U.S. collapse , the final 10 King EU will move in militarily to fill the void left behind the defeated : Russian, Islamic and American troops. ( As it is the richer EU countries are not getting along with the poorer EU countries; we are 'Interpreting the Iron and Clay' as Western Europe & Eastern Europe/ Souther EU & Norther EU*) The only thing that some Arab countries have that interest EU countries is 'OIL' and me thinks that they are going to take it by force !!! The Muslim countries already have their 'Arab League' and for the most part it is a failure; just look at the present state of the Middle East countries today !!! The EU is going to be streamlined and revamped into that final 10 Horn Kingdom !!!
Question # 9. Will the 666 Mark of the Beast be global like in every single nation ?
Answer : Fortunately "NO" The Biblical Prophecies make it very clear that the 'Man of Sin' and his Kingdom will continue to have several 'Enemies' and if all the nations on this planet literally enforced the 'Mark of the Beast' then no nation would be saved because once any human soul 'Accepts' to take the 'Mark' then he/she can 'NO" longer be saved, if that was the case then the other Prophecies that state that 'The nations of the world that shall be saved shall walk in its light would never be possible ( Revelation 21 : 24 ) Additionally, it appears that Israel will 'NOT' accept to be a part of the 666 Mark System; if that were to be the case then why would the 'Man of Sin' kill 66% of the Jewish population and then how could the promised 33% ( one third in Zechariah ) be saved ??? Obviously, Israel will remain under its own currency and good for Israel at least 'Temporarily' because you and I know what Satan ultimately has planned for the Jewish people. Furthermore the global 'Black Market' has always thrived; studying the history books it appears that 'NO' empire nor nation has ever fully been able to wipe out the underground economy !!! Satan is going to 'SEAL' his children and GOD is going to 'SEAL' His with Spirit !!! We should also consider the 'Logistics' of implementing the 666 Mark on billions of human beings within the span of only 42 months; all the while GOD is opening and pouring His 'Seals of Judgements' upon a very wicked planet that refuses to REPENT ***
Question # 10. Will there really be a World War III before Armageddon ?
Answer : Unfortunately YES. EUinProphecy.com for over a decade now has been interpreting Revelation 6; The 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse as the product of a World at war : Conquest, Famine, Plagues and massive casualties that will eclipse the death and destruction of World War I and WW II combined are 'NOT' your everyday military conflicts between nations. The 1st Horseman is bent on CONQUEST and is even more determined and ruthless than Adolph Hitler was !!! ( HItler initiated WW II and the 'Little Horn' bent on conquest will initiate WW III. ) Recently I heard a very well known 'Prophecy Writer' state on a Youtube interview somewhat 'sarcastically' that it doesn't say that 25% of the world will be killed in Revelation 6:8, that 'Brother' misses the point, in WWI and WW II some 120+ Million people died !!! Given today's global population in the over 7+ billion those numbers will be very easily SURPASSED !!! This student of Bible Prophecy believes and interprets that the war of Ezekiel 38 must happen first before WW III and the 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse make their unholy entrance !!!
Question # 11. Can the Great Tribulation period / 'Jacob's Trouble' / Daniel's Final Week be stopped / averted; like what if everyone REPENTED ?
Answer : "NO" GOD who is Omniscient and knows the end from the beginning and 'HE' has already has taken EVERYTHING under consideration and 'HE' decreed a specific timeline for both Israel and this entire creation to come to a final conclusion ( Daniel 9:24 )
; GOD in effect has given the Jewish people some 2,000 years to repent and acknowledge His only begotten SON : Yeshua : Jesus Christ and 'MOST' have squandered GOD's mercy, grace and patience during those 2,000 years !!! Additionally, GOD has already seen into the hearts of all human souls and the Book of Revelation reveals to us that 'EVEN' as GOD's seal judgements are poured out that 'MOST' of humanity will still choose out of their own free will 'NOT' to repent !!! ( Revelation 9 :21 )
Question # 12. Is the Bible is just a collection of Hebrew/Jewish folktales that promote a global Zionist conspiracy like those who adhere to 'The Protocols of the Elders of Zion' ?
Answer : The Bible is THEE WORD of GOD and most of the Bible is very hard on our Jewish friends, Judgement after Judgement in : Babylon, Egypt etc...How can it be a CONSPIRACY when it reveals the final casualties of Israel in Zechariah; all those who celebrate and desire the destruction of the original chosen people of GOD will get their due directly from GOD. The Biblical Prophecies reveal to us that it all ends over Jerusalem and isn't that were all of this is ultimately headed to ??? The Biblical Prophecies guarantee that ultimately all of the nations on this planet are going to turn their back on Israel; this servant of GOD applauds President Trump's 'Present' backing of Israel because I know that his administration could very well be the last American one that will be in a position to do so !!! ( You don't have to take my word for it; YOU too can learn the 'Hard Way' like most of our Jewish friends have had to learn through the centuries that there is a HOLY GOD and CREATOR that holds everyone accountable and that 'NO' human soul is going to escape the coming judgement of GOD be it here physically on planet earth or in the DAY of JUDGEMENT as is guaranteed in Revelation 20 : 11 !!! All those who hold 'White Superiority' thinking have 'NOT' the Spirit of GOD, how can you despise Jews when Jesus Christ, the 12 Apostles were all of a Jewish background !!! Salvation cometh from the Jews and us gentiles are 'NO' better than our Jewish friends we are just FORGIVEN by the King of the Jews because of our Faith in Him : Jesus Christ !!!
DISCLAIMER : We recommend that every single believer study the Holy Scriptures for themselves. "NO" one is going to be saved by having all their eschatological interpretations correct. WE will all be saved by the grace of GOD and by our Faith in Jesus Christ alone; that being said those who are 'Watching and Praying' have a better chance of 'NOT' being surprised by what is coming.
By : Mario Romano. This servant of Jesus Christ still calls himself a 'Student of Bible Prophecy' because even though he has been studying the Biblical Prophecies for over 20+ years now he does 'NOT' claim to understand every single prophecy 'YET.' Mario is still learning from others and hopefully others will learn from this imperfect vessel of GOD too !!! Some may think that I 'bash' Islam too much or too hard. The truth is that 'ALL' the ancient Pagan enemies of Israel were brutally annihilated in the past 'some more so than others' were SEVERELY punished by GOD !!! GOD doesn't play with SIN nor with the WICKED and today's over 1.2+ billion Muslims who openly call for the DESTRUCTION of Israel like : Iran and Erdogan of Turkey will face a future similar to the ancient enemies of Israel too !!! There is nothing new under this sun and it does bother me when over 47+ Islamic nations unite in the United Nations to vote time after time against Israel and the rest of the nations don't sense something terribly wrong with that !!!
