The purpose of God is to manifest Himself to the world. This has been His purpose from Genesis 1.1 into the future. The heavens are telling the glory of God. Man is made just a little lower than the angels, we are fearfully and wonderfully made. The Bible is a miracle of communication from God to man. Francis Schaeffer wrote a book called, “He is there and He is not Silent,” here is an excerpt:
“So we have three things coming together: God, the infinite-personal God, who made the universe; and man, whom He made to live in that universe; and the Bible, which He has given us to tell us about that universe. Are we surprised that there is a unity between them? Why should we be surprised?” “With God’s norms of truth, morals, values, and knowing we have…a North Star [which gives] unity to the internal and external world.”
God manifests Himself as what He is and Who He is when He says, I am that I am, that is my name. God’s self revelation to us makes it more surprising that we turn against Him so easily. The Bible testifies to us that all of humanity, the whole earth will come together in rebellion against God in the last days. The believers in the true and living God will be more and more isolated as Noah, Jeremiah, and the apostles experienced.
“The kings of the earth take their stand
And the rulers take counsel together
Against the LORD and against His Anointed.” Psalm 2:2
God does not create a world simply
because He can do so, He demonstrates His power, He desires to bring out
the riches of His own being and
character which had otherwise been hidden.
It is made very clear in Romans 1:18-19 that our rebellion against the Lord is against the evidence He provided:
“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them.” Romans 1:18-19
Notice how God is very clear that He has made it evident to everyone that God is there and He is not silent!
On March 29th and 30th of 2022, global elites gathered for the World Government Summit in Dubai. They talked about working with individual governments in a variety of areas. But make no mistake. Their goal is in their name. They want world government.
American economist Dr. Pippa Malmgren said, “What underpins a world order is always the financial system…. And what we’re seeing in the world today, I think, is we are on the brink of a dramatic change where we are about to—and I’ll say this boldly—we’re about to abandon the traditional system of money and accounting, and introduce a new one. And the new one, the new accounting is what we call blockchain. It means digital, it means having an almost perfect record of every single transaction that happens in the economy.” Hallindsey.com
The American experience teaches us that you know it is close to Thanksgiving because Christmas music is playing. We know that the rapture is close because the music of Revelation is playing! The rise of the final government, the revived Roman Empire is evident everyday!
“The European Union is in the final stages of enacting a law called “the Digital Services Act.” The DSA [Digital Services Act] aims to protect internet users by establishing an ‘unprecedented new standard’ for online platforms. Note again that they are not just suppressing “illegal content,” but also “harmful content.” And the EU decides what is and what is not “harmful.” Hallindsey.com
The world has moved closer and closer to complete censorship of biblical values and morals. China has a system to shut down the gospel and the biblical worldview. The European Union as America is doing, has shut down dissent especially the Christian worldview.
Antichrist comes from the revived Roman Empire according to Daniel 9. The European Union has attempted to become a one nation for all of Europe, much like Rome ruled as a Empire for over five hundred years. God says that the last empire, the one that fills the whole earth, will rise from Europe.
The revived Roman Empire is called the ten toes, ten horns, and a kingdom. To understand the revived Roman Empire you have to understand the “times of the Gentiles.” The beginning of the “times of the Gentiles” started in 586B.C. When Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, captured Jerusalem and destroyed the Temple in Jerusalem. Even though the Jews have returned to the land in 1948 as a nation and are in control of Jerusalem, the times of the Gentiles continue.
Nebuchadnezzar’s dream of an image, recorded in Daniel 2 shows us prophetically that the end times will include a final ten toes kingdom. In Daniel 7 God describes the final kingdom as a beast that is fierce and scary! The scary monster wants to devour everything in its path on the earth.
“After this I saw in the night visions, and, behold, a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly, and it had great iron teeth; it devoured and broke in pieces, and stamped the residue with its feet; and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it, and it had ten horns” Daniel 7:7
First, the four beasts of Daniel 7 are four kings or kingdoms that would come upon the earth (v. 17). Second, the fourth beast would be the fourth kingdom, which would be different from all the other empires, and ten kings or kingdoms would arise out of it. Third, just as the fourth empire of the image of chapter 2 has ten toes, the beast that represents the fourth kingdom in chapter 7 has ten horns, symbolic of power. Israelmyglory.com
One ruler rises and dominates all of the other kings among the ten. He will speak blasphemy against God, despise and attempt to destroy the people of God, change the proven laws of time, seasons, and the land, and be a worldwide dictator for three and one-half years, after which God will take away His kingdom and give it to Christ to rule forever.
The antichrist comes to power with a peace deal with the world and Israel. The temple is at the center of the prophecy and we see Israel getting very close to building the temple. Many articles have been written about the building of the temple since March. A small minority in Israel leads the nation towards building the temple. The bible teaches us that this must happen even though there is not a great push for it to get done in Israel. The majority of Jews and Christians in the world could care less about the temple and many do not want it done. God wants it done and so it will be done!
The building of the temple is another manifestation of God in the world that He is in control. It will happen like it happened in the days of Ezra, Zechariah, and Haggai.
“While most Israelis were celebrating Independence Day by having family barbecues, a small group gathered in the Old City of Jerusalem and began chipping away at stones, preparing them to be used to build the prophesied Third Temple. “We have a mitzvah (Torah commandment) to build the Temple. This mitzvah is not conditional or time-bound. We have this requirement at all times. So it is a pity that we are not actively engaged in it. Right now, it is politically complicated for us to begin building on the Temple Mount but that does not exempt us from this mitzvah.” Rabbi Lipo realized that it was possible to begin to actually perform this mitzvah by preparing the stones that will be used to build the Third Temple.” Israel365news.com
We know the rapture is just around the corner because we hear the music of Revelation playing. What a great day to be alive. I hope this article gives you hope and excitement about the day we live.
