God wants control of His creation and has provided His will for each. With God’s control and our obedience, He has provided many promises: such as peace, prosperity and eternal life. Man wants to deny God and take control over man and tell us how the world is to live. We have a choice to be controlled spiritually with individual freedom or accept government and lose our freedom. Who is your savior: Christ or government? It seems, as a whole, the world has denied God to accept government as their provider and protector. As a result:

You probably will not hear about how close we are to the end times from your minister. It is not politically correct and they do not want to be considered a “kook or fanatical”. Who knows when the end-time is coming because it has been predicted for over 2000 years?

The signs that are recorded in Holy Scripture found in Jeremiah, Daniel, Ezekiel, Matthew Chapter 24, II Thessalonians Chapter 2, Revelations and other prophecy warn us to be aware of the signs when the end is near. Read Ezekiel 38:1 – 3 – “The word of the Lord came to me: ‘Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshek and Tubal; prophesy against him and say: ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I am against you, Gog, chief prince of Meshek and Tubal.’” If you study prophecy, many believe the chief prince is Vladimir Putin of Russia. A huge sign!

Daniel 12:9 – 13 – He replied, “Go your way, Daniel, because the words are rolled up and sealed until the time of the end. Many will be purified, made spotless and refined, but the wicked will continue to be wicked. None of the wicked will understand, but those who are wise will understand. ‘From the time that the daily sacrifice is abolished and the abomination that causes desolation is set up, there will be 1,290 days. Blessed is the one who waits for and reaches the end of the 1,335 days. As for you, go your way till the end. You will rest, and then at the end of the days you will rise to receive your allotted inheritance.’” The Bible indicates very few are willing to understand prophecy and most will deny it. Daily sacrifices will be abolished when the Temple is built by the Antichrist.

Matthew 24:21 – “For then there will be great distress, unequaled from the beginning of the world until now—and never to be equaled again.” Christ confirms the teaching of the prophet Daniel in this chapter as He refers to the abomination that causes desolation. (Matthew 24:15)

II Thessalonians 2:8 – 12 – “And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming. The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie, and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.”

Christians, recognize that those who are not saved will believe the Antichrist because of God’s powerful delusion. We must do everything to help people understand; there could be a time when it is not possible to accept Christ as one’s Savior. Remember the hard-hearted evil pharaoh who God used during Moses’ time who wouldn’t believe?

The one to be revealed, we believe, will come from one of the final ten nations of the European Union, the old Holy Roman Empire. He will be the Antichrist, the one who promises to bring peace to the world. Once that person is revealed it is the beginning of the end.

There is still time left now. We know that Israel and Palestine will reach a peace agreement. This will allow the Israelites to build their Temple on the Temple Mount, next to the Muslin Dome of the Rock.

Scripture says only God will protect Israel in the end-times. The U.S. will have no part in the end times that we can find in the Bible. As we keep spending and borrowing it is very possible that we could not financially help anyone within the next few years. If the dollar is no longer the world’s currency it could create financial havoc for the U.S. When the British pound sterling was the world currency for 200 years until 1970 and once it was no longer the world’s standard the United Kingdom had an inflation rate of over 25%.

Many nations are no longer trading in American dollars and some believe it is just a matter of time until the dollar is no longer the standard which is used by all nations for buying and selling. With our tremendous federal deficit and our printing of an unlimited amounts of money, some believe we could reach a financial crisis similar to what happened to England in the 1970s when the pound sterling ceased to be the standard. It is possible this is why America has to lose its superpower status in the end-times and be unable to become the peacemaker it has been. It is in God’s plan from the beginning of time. Let’s be careful who we blame.

The reason the world has existed this long is because America was a Christian nation and worshipped God. Once we started taking God out of our daily lives and rejecting His commandments and when material things became America’s god, it was just a matter of time until judgment comes. Read the Old Testament and see what the consequences of the Israelites disobeying God.

Ezekiel 14:13 & 14 – “Son of man, if a country sins against me by being unfaithful and I stretch out my hand against it to cut off its food supply and send famine upon it and kill its people and their animals, even if these three men—Noah, Daniel and Job—were in it, they could save only themselves by their righteousness, declares the Sovereign Lord.”

One time there was a flood because people became so corrupt and anti-God. Is there much difference today?

What Christians have to look forward to in the next new earth and heaven is indescribable. What God has planned for us is a mansion in another Garden of Eden and with the lastest technology. This time we will never die and will enjoy every day. Every need we could ever hope for will be met. Is there someone you want to be there with you? Are they saved? PRAY!
