I recently attended a pretty standard Bible prophesy seminar to see what they were saying about end time prophesy with the Muslims now being such a factor in the world today. My question was, "Have these Euro prophets learned that their European based prophesies don't work and it must be Islam which will be the one world government and one world church?" I learned in just one service that the answer is no. They are still beating their dead European prophesy horse.
To continue to sell their prophesy about Europe being the one world government and the Catholic Church being the one world church of the Tribulation, years ago, they first grabbed hold of the newly forming European Union and said it would only grow to 10 countries (the 10 horns) but now that it has grown past 20 countries, that analogy doesn't work any more so they are saying that, when Rome fell, Europe became 10 countries which isn't true. After the fall of Rome, Europe went into the "Dark Ages" because it quickly broke down into the Feudal System which was dozens and dozens of smaller countries or even city states which were constantly waging war against each other and changing boarders. Therefore neither analogy works. They keep bending and ignoring key details of prophesy and history to try and keep their false European based prophesy alive instead of reexamining the Bible prophesies in relation to the Middle East to see what the prophesies really say.
Always remember that the Bible was written in the Middle East about the Middle East and not in Europe about Europe. Believing that the one world government and one world church of the Tribulation is Europe and the Catholic Church is pure ignorance and arrogance with the upper class natural elites of Europe thinking the world revolves around them and not around the Middle East, AKA replacement theology. Bible prophesy doesn't have a thing to do with the arrogant Euro Royals, plain and simple. Deal with it.
Let's examine three key prophesies concerning the end times. Two are in Daniel and have to do with King Nebuchadnezzar's dream of the image and Daniel's dream of the four beasts. The third is in the book of Revelation and has to do with the end time prophesies in Chapters 17 through 19 and the beast with 7 heads and 10 horns.
One mistake they make in their analysis is that they falsely assume that the 4 beasts in Daniel's dream meant there will only be 4 kingdoms but the other prophesies, especially in Revelation, prove this to be wrong. Because of this assumption, they say that Nebuchadnezzar's image is only talking about 4 kingdoms when it is clearly talking about 5 kingdoms and in Revelation it talks about 7 kingdoms.
God does not anywhere put a maximum on the number of kingdoms which will occur on this planet before the end time kingdom. He is simply saying these given kingdoms will pass and then the last kingdom will come into being before the Messiah comes to set up His eternal kingdom. In Nebuchadnezzar's dream, God shows that at least 4 kingdoms will come before the last kingdom as signs of that last kingdom's coming. In Daniel's dream God only lists the first 3 of those 4 kingdoms as signs before the last kingdom will come. In Revelation God says there will be at least 6 kingdoms before the last kingdom will come. All of them are right because they are talking about minimums and not maximums.
In Nebuchadnezzar's dream God lists Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, and Rome as existing before the last kingdom. This is a minimum and not a maximum. In Daniel's dream God only lists Babylon, Medo-Persia, and Greece as existing before the last kingdom, leaving Rome completely out of that prophesy. In Revelation God doesn't list the 5 countries before Rome but clearly differentiates between Rome and the last kingdom showing that the last kingdom has nothing to do with Rome.
In all 3 prophesies, the last kingdom is shown as having ten rulers. This is shown in the 10 toes on Nebuchadnezzar's image, the 10 horns in Daniel's beast, and the 10 horns in the beast of Revelation plus in Daniel's dream and John's vision, there is a little horn that comes up after the first 10 horns. This ties all 3 of these prophesies together as being about the same kingdom and the only major power in the world which had 10 leaders as a ruling counsel was the Muslim Caliphate and the Muslims are expecting the little horn which will be their Mahdi or Messiah. The one vision which really cements Islam to all three prophesies is the number of the beast in Revelation which is 666. For over 1,300 years the number 666 has been the most holy number in Islam and, today, increasing numbers of Muslims around the world are having the number 666 tattooed on the backs of their right hands or on their foreheads as predicted in the book of Revelation 2,000 years ago and even having it printed on the fronts of their Koran's.
The Caliphate began shortly after the fall of Rome, more than 1,300 years ago, and conquered most of the Roman Empire including the entire Eastern Roman Empire and much of the Western Empire including all of North Africa, Portugal, Spain, Sicily, Southern Italy, and much of Eastern Europe along with quite a bit of Asia. At one time the Caliphate controlled more land than Rome did during the height of its rule. The Muslims still control all of the Eastern Roman Empire (where is Rome going to get that other foot from?), all of North Africa, and part of Eastern Europe.
During the Tribulation, the Muslim Caliphate will conquer the world, kill all non Muslims except for the slaves they take, and wage war against the remnant of God's people. This is prophesied in the Old Testament or Jewish Tanach, the New Testament, and in Islam but from the opposite perspective to what is prophesied in Judaism and Christianity. For the end time prophesies on Islam it is clearly prophesied that they are the one world government and church of the Tribulation with their Messiah waging war against the remnant of God's people, the Jews and the Christians. Just how much more obvious does it have to get that the Muslim Caliphate is the one world government and one world church of the Revelation and it cannot possibly be about Europe?
There could not be a more obvious indication that the one world government and one world church of Revelation is the Muslim Caliphate and not Europe and the Catholic Church. These false Euro prophets have it all wrong and are leading many astray which fulfills the end time prophesy which says that many people will be lead astray by a false doctrine, even many of the elect or saved people.
The nut shell version of Johns vision is that the woman riding on the beast is the city of Babylon which was rebuilt by Saddam Hussein on the outskirts of the digs of the ancient city of Babylon during the 1990's, people live, play, and work in Babylon, and Saddam Hussein used to stage military parades in Babylon in his own honor prior to Iraq being conquered by the Coalition. Babylon will be the capital city of the Muslim Caliphate and will finally be destroyed forever during the Tribulation resulting in the Caliphate moving its capital city to Jerusalem at the middle of the Tribulation.
The beast with the 7 heads and 10 horns in Revelation is the antichrist or Islamic Mahdi or Messiah but also represents the Muslim Caliphate. The angel told John the 7 heads represent seven kingdoms of which five had already come and gone, one was in power at that time (at that time Rome was the world power), and one is to follow clearly differentiating between Rome and the last kingdom in the Tribulation. The 10 horns were 10 kings who didn't have individual kingdoms but ruled over the last kingdom in a government counsel, the little horn was a ruler who came up after the first 10 kings and took control of the last kingdom. The angel also told John that this end time kingdom would be built on the 7 kingdoms (inclusive of the last kingdom itself) though the vision didn't specifically identify any of those kingdoms except for the then existing Roman Empire but probably includes Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, Rome, Egyptian Pharaoh Empire, and Assyrian Empire along with the Muslim Caliphate itself. This is partly shown by the image of the beast itself because it had the body of a leopard (Greece), feet of a bear (Medo-Persia), mouth of a lion (Babylon), its jaws were of iron (Rome), and its claws were bronze (again Greece). People from all of those empires or kingdoms currently live in the Middle East and will be involved in building the Muslim Caliphate.
In Nebuchadnezzar's dream the head of gold was Babylon, the breast and arms of silver were Medo-Persia, the belly and thighs of bronze were Greece, the legs of iron were Rome (the Eastern and Western Empires divided), and the feet of iron mixed with clay and the 10 toes clearly mentioned will be the Muslim Caliphate. God has shown me that this dream shows the Muslim Caliphate will be divided by Israel following the Battle of Ezekiel 38 and 39 with 5 leaders from the western part of the Caliphate and 5 leaders from the Eastern part of the Caliphate making up the Caliphate counsel of 10 leaders.
In Daniel's dream the lion with eagle's wings which were plucked and the lion was stood up like a man and given a human heart was Babylon, the bear with 3 ribs in its mouth representing the 3 kings which ruled this empire was Medo-Persia, the leopard with 4 wings and 4 heads was Greece, and the beast with iron teeth, 10 horns, and the little horn will be the Muslim Caliphate and not Rome. Please note that Rome was completely left out of this vision showing that the end time kingdom will not be Rome.
The only kingdom which fits the last kingdom in all of these prophesies is the Muslim Caliphate which is currently in the process of being revived. Please note that, at this time, what is left of the Roman Empire is dying a slow death caused by the over spending of liberal Marxism while the Muslim Caliphate is in the process of rebuilding because of selling everyone oil.
I also feel it is necessary to point out the key differences between the Battle of Ezekiel 38 & 39 verses the Battle of Armageddon because these false prophets are still teaching they are the same battle.
In Ezekiel 38 & 39 it clearly states the battle will take place in the "mountains of Israel" which is Old Testament for the "northern mountains of Israel" or today's Lebanon and Syria where as in the book of Revelation it states the Battle of Armageddon will take place in the Valley of Megiddo much further to the south so the locations are different.
In Ezekiel 38 & 39 it states that the enemies of Israel will turn their weapons on each other following a terrible earth quake and will also be killed by pestilence, a flooding rain, great hail, fire, and brimstone where as in Revelation it says that the beast and false prophet will be taken captive and cast alive into the lake of fire while the rest of the army will be killed by the two edged sword which proceeds from the mouth of Jesus, our Messiah. Everyone who knows anything about the Bible knows that the Sword of the Lord is the Word of the Lord and this is clearly saying that Jesus will speak, the entire army will hemorrhage violently, and die because it also says the Valley of Megiddo will flow with the blood of this army up to the bridle of a horse's mouth which will require considerable blood loss or violent hemorrhaging.
In Ezekiel 38 & 39 it clearly states that one in six of the combatants will survive meaning the mortality or death rate of the enemy will be 83.3% but in Revelation it clearly states that all of the army will die meaning a mortality rate of 100%.
It should be obvious to anyone that these cannot be the same battle because the details are clearly very different. You have to be careful because these false Euro prophets are very clearly ignoring any details which prove their prophesies to be wrong. The Bible makes it very clear that the proof of any prophesy is in the details. When you objectively study the details of the Bible prophesies, you easily see the errors in these false prophets fairy tales.
They are not prophesying to the glory of God but for money made by selling their books, DVD's, and other merchandising. It is a racket which is leading many people down the wrong road at the end of which will be a terrible surprise causing many to fall away from the church and God, which will in turn fulfill the prophesies stating that in the end times many will fall away from the church and it will be as in the days of Noah.
One has to ask, "What will all of these people fall away to?" The obvious answer is paganism which has been trying to seduce these people away from Christianity anyway and will gladly grab these confused and disoriented people up after these false prophesies don't come true. This will cause a huge return to paganism which will fulfill the prophesy about it being as it was in the days of Noah when paganism ruled the entire planet which is why God killed them all off with the flood.
I wrote this essay so that, when Jesus doesn't return after the Battle of Ezekiel 38 & 39, you won't become confused and disoriented and leave the church to be swallowed up by paganism which will only confuse you more. The soon coming Battle of Ezekiel 38 & 39 will not be the Battle of Armageddon and Jesus will not return in that battle to set up His kingdom. Yet that is exactly what the false Euro prophets are preaching. We will still have one more major battle between God and mankind over Israel before the Messiah returns and sets up His kingdom. God let me know that the Battle of Ezekiel 38 & 39 will happen in 2012 and the Battle of Armageddon will take place in 2032 so you won't be disheartened and fall away from the church when Jesus doesn't return in 2012.
A person e-mailed me after I first published the essay about God giving me the years for the beginning and ending of the Tribulation saying it couldn't be true because Jesus said that only God the Father knows the hour and the day. True, but God didn't give me the hour and the day for these things, He only gave me the years so I am not conflicting with Jesus. We still don't know the hour and the day for these things, just the years. God wants you to know these things so you won't be devastated when the false prophets are wrong and fall away from the church because the Messiah won't come when they say he will. But the Messiah will come, just later, so...
