Ahmadinejad's Speech

For those who aren't aware of this, President Ahmadinejad was allowed to address the United Nations general assembly earlier this week. Of course the big news was that Ahmadinejad used the speech to blame the 9/11 collapse of the Towers on the U.S. government...claiming it was an inside job. And the U.S. delegation, and other Western delegations, walked out during his speech.

But let's take a closer look at what cryptic messages this dude may have been delivering. When you understand that he is 100% deceived by Satan...and that this dude has the potential power to light the world on fire....his speech takes on some very different meanings.

I have plucked some paragraphs out of his speech and will put his words in italic and my translation/comments in bold.

Ladies and Gentlemen,
I am grateful to the Almighty God (Satan, Allah) who granted me the opportunity to appear before this world assembly once again.

After about one hundred years of domination, the system of Capitalism (the USA, Israel, and The West) and the existing world order has proved to be unable to provide appropriate solution to the problems of societies, thus coming to an end. (and he hopes to speed this along) I shall try to examine the two main causes of this failure and picture some features of the ideal future order. (which consists of the 12th Imam ruling the world using shariah law)

As you are well aware, the divine prophets (Mohammad) had the mission to call everyone to monotheism, (Islam) love and justice and show mankind the path (Shariah law quite literally translates as "the path") to prosperity. They invite men to contemplation and knowledge in order to better appreciate the truth and to avoid atheism and egoism. The very nature of the message of all prophets is one and the same. (this is a bold-faced Satanic lie. 1 John says to "test the spirits") Every messenger endorsed the messenger before him and gave glad tidings about the prophet to come, and presented a more complete version of the religion in accordance with the capacity of the man at the time. (another HUGE Satanic lie. When Jesus died he said, "It is finished". Jesus said he is the ONLY way to the father) This continued up to the last messenger of God(Mohammad) who presented the perfect and all inclusive religion.(Islam...and you better accept it or face death once we rule the world)
In opposition to that, the egotist and the greedy (followers of Jesus Christ and Judeo/Christian values) stood up against this clear call, revolting against the message. (because many recognized it as a call from Satan and we saw how Islam started butchering anyone who would not submit to this false call) get the idea. I could go on and on going through his speech paragraph by paragraph, but I would suggest that you read the speech here and put on your discernment glasses.

As you read it and you understand that this dude believes the 12th Imam is soon coming, once the world can be made chaotic enough, to rule with shariah law...and that he wants the USA (great Satan) and Israel (little Satan) to get out of the way....and that he claims to be having private conversations with the 12th Imam (which is a demon-spirit) gets the idea that having a nuclear weapon at this guys disposal would NOT be a good idea.

I watched Charlie Rose interview him a few nights ago and I will testify that this guy is not insane. On the contrary, he is smart as a whip and basically had Charlie Rose on his heels during the entire interview. He did the same thing with an interviewer from Fox News yesterday. The more I watch him the more I am convinced that he has a supernatural agenda....and is being empowered by some supernatural forces....forces that are not from Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.

We need to humble ourselves and pray for this fallen world and for those who are taken over by the evil Ahmadinejad obviously is.

Sovereign Default

What the heck is "sovereign default"...and why are they talking about it in the Wall Street Journal today?

Good questions.

The simple answers to those questions are; when a country doesn't pay the debts that it owes, it's called "sovereign default" AND...because the Wall Street Journal article thinks we are going to start seeing countries default on their IOU's.

Oh yeah...for anyone who was in adult ed last Sunday, take note that this is just one more article that makes mention of the IMF. (International Monetary Fund).

Wednesday's market jitters have served as a reminder that worries of a sovereign default haven't disappeared, despite the big rescue packages lined up for Greece and other shaky euro-zone economies.

In a paper this month, staffers at the International Monetary Fund argued that sovereign default in advanced economies is "unnecessary, undesirable and unlikely."

But among those who beg to differ is Willem Buiter, Citigroup's chief economist. In a report last week, he dismisses the IMF claim as "based on bad economics and simplistic political economy."

He says no government credit is safe from the risk of default because it is harder than ever to rein in budget deficits. That's for three main reasons:

—Demand for public spending has grown in most advanced economies faster than the capacity to tax. Apart from building public resentment, higher taxes risk damaging incentives to work, educate oneself, save and invest.

—Politics in many countries have become highly polarized, making it harder for political systems to work out who should suffer the pain of government retrenchment. Prime examples of such polarized societies? Greece and the U.S.

—Tax administration has become less effective. Tax avoidance and evasion appears to have grown everywhere in Europe and the U.S. since World War II as has the gray economy, encouraged by globalization. The further one moves to the south and east in Europe, as a general rule, the bigger share of economic activity takes place in the informal sector.

Now, pay close attention to these comments;

It's not that governments can't pay. But some may be unwilling or unable to inflict on their populations the economic pain required to ensure debts are repaid in full and total debt reduced to sustainable levels.

"The country most at risk is, in our view, Greece, followed by a sizeable gap and then a small cohort of countries including Ireland, Portugal, and Spain, followed by another large gap and then Italy, Belgium, Austria, Japan and, at horizons longer than five years, the U.S.," Mr. Buiter says in the report.

See it here;

Did you catch that? Some governments may not be able to inflict the pain on their voters necessary to get spending back in line. And then notice that he mentions the USA in default risk out past 5 years...after all these other countries have defaulted on their paper. That's because we are expected to issue another $6 to 10 trillion of IOU's over the next 5 years.

If you are already seeing riots in Greece because the government is trying to cut spending...and you are seeing riots in France because the government asked workers to work til age 62 instead of 60....what do you think is going to be the outcome in the USA when we start cutting Social Security, Medicare and Welfare?

I wonder if it's this understanding of what's coming that prompted Dr. David Jeremiah to write his latest book titled; THE COMING ECONOMIC ARMAGEDDON.

One other thing....the stock market is up 180 points today. Wooo-hooo!! (insert sarcasm into that little yelp) No one can figure out the normal fundamentals of what makes the market move up or down...seem to have vanished.

I know one thing for sure....the Bible says that during The Tribulation that the entire global economy will collapse (Revelation 18) one thing we should be watching for today is for nations to collapse. We should expect to see greater economic turmoil as we approach The Tribulation.

Russia Thwarts Iran

We have been watching Russia and Iran move closer together in relations over the past few years. This is predicted in Ezekiel 38.

Today there appears to be some movement AWAY from the continuing fulfillment of this prophecy. So this could be viewed as "good news" to those who aren't fond of the idea of a Russian/Iranian military coalition descending on Israel.

Why Russia is cutting off major arms sales to Iran


After months of sending conflicting signals about whether Russia would fulfill a controversial contract to supply advanced S-300 antiaircraft missiles to Iran, the Kremlin has ordered a halt to all sales of sophisticated Russian weaponry to the Islamic Republic.

A decree signed by President Dmitry Medvedev on Wednesday bans the supply of battle tanks, armored vehicles, large-caliber artillery systems, warplanes, military helicopters, ships, and missiles – including S-300 air defense systems – to Iran as part of measures to bring Russia into compliance with tough sanctions agreed by the UN Security Council in June.

Iran has purchased more than $5 billion in Russian weaponry over the past decade, including Tor-M1 short-range antiaircraft missiles, warplanes, submarines, and armored vehicles.

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said unspecified defense cooperation with Iran would continue, despite the end of major arms sales. "There are other directions," he told journalists.

See it here;

Now notice a few things; if it is true that Russia is not going to sell and install the S-300 anti-aircraft system to Iran....this may be EXTREMELY welcome news in Israel because it may buy the IDF more time to figure out the best way to destroy Iran's nuclear facilities knowing they only have to penetrate the current antiquated Iranian radar system.

The other thing to notice is the cryptic message given by the Russian foreign minister who says that defense cooperation will continue with Iran...noting that, "There are other directions." What the heck does that mean? Are they going to sell the S-300 to Hezbollah instead?

So I will call this news story a glimmer of good news but not astonishingly good news....because I am thinking Russia is going to figure out a way to keep pumping guns, bombs and missiles into Iran despite today's headline....and they will find "other directions" in which to do it.

War by Year End

Of course the world seems to be coming apart over what to do with tiny Israel. The wars and rumors of wars that surround this little strip of land continue to grow.

Today this headline is out of Jordan (who is a named player in Psalm 83...but at that time was called Ammon and Moab)

Jordan's king warns of war by year's end

WASHINGTON – Several hours after describing what Israel and the Palestinians are expected to gain from peace in his UN General Assembly address, Jordan's King Abdullah warned Thursday night that if the settlement construction freeze issue would not be solved, a violent conflict could break out by the end of 2010.

"If we don't get past the 30th, which shows sincerity that the Israelis and Palestinians are going to move forward," expect a war by the end of the year, the Jordanian king told Jon Stewart on the Daily Show.

See it here;,7340,L-3959234,00.html

Of course it is also being reported that Israel ordered a massive amount of jet fuel...and jet fuel has an expiration date of 4-5 we are told.

Throw on top of this the Iranian president's speech yesterday in the UN and paste that together with his actions....and you start to get a clear picture that something may be about ready to pop.

And when it does, you can expect Israel to be right in the middle of it.

Hat tip to Tom.

UFO's Comprimising Our Nukes

As aliens and UFO's continue to go mainstream and Satan prepares the world for a grand deception (following the rapture...we hope)....we have this headline today:

U.S. Nuclear Weapons Have Been Compromised by Unidentified Aerial Objects

WASHINGTON, Sept. 15 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Witness testimony from more than 120 former or retired military personnel points to an ongoing and alarming intervention by unidentified aerial objects at nuclear weapons sites, as recently as 2003. In some cases, several nuclear missiles simultaneously and inexplicably malfunctioned while a disc-shaped object silently hovered nearby. Six former U.S. Air Force officers and one former enlisted man will break their silence about these events at the National Press Club and urge the government to publicly confirm their reality.

One of them, ICBM launch officer Captain Robert Salas, was on duty during one missile disruption incident at Malmstrom Air Force Base and was ordered to never discuss it. Another participant, retired Col. Charles Halt, observed a disc-shaped object directing beams of light down into the RAF Bentwaters airbase in England and heard on the radio that they landed in the nuclear weapons storage area. Both men will provide stunning details about these events, and reveal how the U.S. military responded.

Captain Salas notes, "The U.S. Air Force is lying about the national security implications of unidentified aerial objects at nuclear bases and we can prove it." Col. Halt adds, "I believe that the security services of both the United States and the United Kingdom have attempted—both then and now—to subvert the significance of what occurred at RAF Bentwaters by the use of well-practiced methods of disinformation."

The group of witnesses and a leading researcher, who has brought them together for the first time, will discuss the national security implications of these and other alarmingly similar incidents and will urge the government to reveal all information about them. This is a public-awareness issue.

Declassified U.S. government documents, to be distributed at the event, now substantiate the reality of UFO activity at nuclear weapons sites extending back to 1948. The press conference will also address present-day concerns about the abuse of government secrecy as well as the ongoing threat of nuclear weapons.

See it here;

If you look at the list of the credible military folks who are going to be in attendance...this conference is obviously not going to made up of National Enquirer-hillbilly-types from West Virginia. These are sane, respectable people who are telling us that something strange and supernatural has been going on....and that our Government has been suppressing the information.

So what could Satan be up to? And why has he been ramping up his demons-in-alien-disguise plan since 1948? Of course the famous UFO crash in Roswell New Mexico happened around this time as well.

Could it be that once Satan saw that Israel was officially back home in the promised land (1948)...he recognized the fulfillment of Ezekiel 37...and realized that since that day we have officially been in the "season" for the return of the Lord?

Satan knows he needs to come up with a REALLY GOOD explanation for what happened to millions of folks once the rapture happens. And what better explanation than to have the folks left behind believing that it was "aliens" who came and took all those "crazy" Bible believing folks...took them away to have their brains adjusted so they will be ready to enter the "New Age"......the Age of Aquarius.

1 Timothy 4:1, "The Spirit clearly says that in later times (last days) some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons."

If aliens are really just demon spirits dressed in alien disguise....and the folks on planet earth believe what they are saying...especially if they accompany their words with signs and wonders.....wouldn't that fulfill Paul's prophecy in 1 Timothy?

Be a Berean! Look it up. Think about it. Ask God for wisdom. Are all these people making up UFO stories at the same time? Why would they be doing it? Are they just not as smart as you?

Progressive Church

The linked video is pretty funny, pretty sad and pretty true. It's a take off on the Progressive insurance commercials but changes the topic from shopping for insurance into shopping for a church/religion.

See it here;

How many churches start off each week at a staff meeting saying, "what can we do to attract more people to come here?" Better coffee? Softer pews? Shorter sermons? Louder music? Better snacks between services? More jokes and fun from the pulpit? More sermons on sex and culture?

How many churches have given up preaching on sin and repentance because, "no one wants to hear about that anymore."

How many churches have thrown out parts of the Bible because they don't believe it lines up with what THEY understand God to be about?

How many churches have quit telling their attenders about Hell even though the Bible talks more about hell than it does about heaven?

How many churches have forgotten that only the Holy Spirit saves people?

How many churches have 10% of the attenders doing 100% of the work and 90% doing absolutely nothing?

How many churches will have people left sitting in the pews when the Rapture happens because it turns out that the church was actually full of non-believers who never actually received the Holy Spirit?

"On that day, many will say, "Lord, Lord! Didn't we cast out demons in your name? Didn't we prophecy in your name?" And Jesus will say, "Depart from me. I don't know you."

Will Gold Save Us?

The daily headlines keep talking about gold. The radio and TV advertisements keep talking about gold. "After all," they keep telling us, "gold has never been worth zero."

Really? So you mean gold is always going to keep its value?

Here is today's headline;

Gold Climbs to Record as Dollar Weakens Following Fed Statement

Gold climbed to a record in London and New York after the Federal Reserve said it was willing to ease monetary policy further to boost the U.S. economy, triggering a slump in the dollar.

See it here;

So with all this talk about gold...does God's word have anything to offer in regards to trading our paper money for gold?

"They will throw their silver into the streets, and their gold will be an unclean thing. Their silver and gold will not be able to save them in the day of the Lord's wrath. They will not satisfy their hunger or fill their stomachs with it , for it has made them stumble into sin." Ezekiel 7:19 maybe we aren't the first people on planet earth who believe that gold is going to save us?

So what should we do with all our treasure? What did Jesus tell us to do?

Lay up your treasure in heaven where moth and rust will not destroy.

Wait a tic Jesus....are you talking to me? Surely you must be talking to someone else....

Fall Feasts

I really haven't done much study on the feasts that God set up for Israel to recognize. However, I have heard enough about them to know that they have some deep spiritual meaning...not only to the Jews but to us Christians as well. Why? Because God said that these feasts were a "shadow of things to come."

Today marks the start of the Feast of Tabernacles. Chuck Missler sent an email explaining this feast...and it is interesting...especially for those of us who are watching for the rapture.

"Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, The fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the feast of tabernacles for seven days unto the LORD... Ye shall dwell in booths seven days; all that are Israelites born shall dwell in booths: That your generations may know that I made the children of Israel to dwell in booths, when I brought them out of the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God." – Leviticus 23:34, 42-43

The Feast of Tabernacles, or Succoth, begins on the 15th of Tishri and lasts for eight days. This year Succoth will begin at sunset on Wednesday, September 22. The word Succoth (also spelled Sukkot) means "booths", and refers to the temporary dwellings that are built and inhabited during the festival. The Feast of Tabernacles, or the Feast of Booths as it is sometimes called, is a joyous holiday and a time of feasting and commemorates the 40 years that the nation of Israel wandered in the wilderness before entering the Promised Land.

It is fascinating to visit Israel at this time and observe the temporary "booths" built in the traditional way, leaving deliberate gaps in the branches to view the stars at night to let the wind blow through during the day.

At the end of the eight days, the Jews leave their temporary dwellings to return to their permanent homes. (This is one of the reasons some suspect that this feast, rather than the Feast of Trumpets, is suggestive of the Rapture of the Church.) This day, traditionally, is the day that Solomon dedicated the first Temple.

In the time of Jesus, Succoth involved a daily processional to the Pool of Siloam to fetch water for the Temple. This ceremonial procession is the setting for the events of John 7, where Jesus offers his listeners "living water." This procession involved four types of branches: the willow, the myrtle, the palm, and a citrus (Leviticus 23:40). The willow has no smell and no fruit. The myrtle has smell, but no fruit. The palm has no smell, but bears fruit. The citrus has both smell and bears fruit. This sounds reminiscent of the four soils of the first "kingdom parable" of Matthew 13.

As Christians we may not celebrate many of the traditional Jewish holidays, yet they hold great spiritual and prophetic significance. Colossians 2:16-17 says, "Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: which are a shadow of things to come." (emphasis added)

Most observers note that the three feasts in the first month of the religious year - Passover, Feast of Unleavened Bread, and Feast of First Fruits - are prophetic of the Lord's First Coming. They each were also fulfilled on the day they were observed.

Between these three feasts and the final three feasts is the Feast of Weeks, or Pentecost, which is predictive of the Church. (It is also the only feast in which leavened bread is ordained!)

It is believed that the last three feasts, in the seventh month, are prophetic of the Lord's Second Coming. Many believers are particularly watchful each fall in the hopes that "this" will be the year these final three feasts are fulfilled.

Amen! Come Lord Jesus!

Short Term Paper

As we watch the financial condition of America, we have all come to realize that our elected officials have been issuing IOU's over the past 20 years at an unprecedented amount. Why? Because just like most Americans using credit cards and taking out car loans....Congress wants shiny new toys RIGHT NOW but doesn't have the money in they put them on credit and will let a future generation figure out how to pay for them.

It really is that simple. The only exception would be infrastructure which probably SHOULD be amortized and paid off over it's useful period.

Today I ran across this statistic in regards to this country's IOU's;

5. USING SHORT-TERM PAPER - 63% of the $8.3 trillion of outstanding bills, notes, and bonds issued by the US government will mature within the
next 3 years (source: Strategas Research Partners).

Let me explain why this is potentially very serious.

What happens if those $8.3 trillion are currently financed at 2.5% interest and when they come due and all the new investors want 6% if they are going to refinance them? What if they demand 10% like is happening in Greece?

Even at 2.5%, the interest payments are soon going to take a huge amount of our revenue. What happens if 100% of our revenue soon has to go to pay the interest on our $trillions? Who will pay for our military?....China? Who will pay for our Social Security?....Greece? Who will pay for ObamaCare?....Iran?

Where's the Bunker?

Yesterday we had a post on the USA selling bunkerbuster bombs to Israel.

Today I ran across this headline from the WSJ;

Iran Dissidents Pinpoint Alleged Nuclear Site

WASHINGTON—Iran is developing an underground military installation in the mountains west of Tehran, according to U.S. officials and Iranian dissidents, but the facility's exact purpose is in dispute.

An Iranian opposition group, the Mujahedin-e-Khalq, on Thursday told a Washington news conference that the site, which it called Javad-nia 2, is a nearly completed uranium-enrichment facility aimed at fast-tracking Iran's nuclear program.

See it here;

Again, we have no idea if any of this is true. It would be VERY likely that Iran (just like the rest of us) has buried it's military bases. That's just prudent planning.

But if the Iranian opposition group is correct and it is a buried fast tracking nuke program....then maybe some of the bunkerbusters going to Israel are going to have their codes locked onto this mountain west of Tehran.

Bring Out the BunkerBusters

Russia keeps arming the Arabs and the USA keeps arming Israel...and the Arabs. It's just that the USA tries to keep Israel using the 2nd latest equipment...while we only sell the Arabs the 3rd latest equipment...thereby keeping Israel in the technological lead.

Today's headline makes it sound like Israel is in Washington D.C. (today) asking if they can get their hands on some of the latest BunkerBuster bombs....made to destroy stuff deep buried nuclear reactors?? Or maybe the bunker that Ahmadinejad and the Mullahs would flee to if an air assault on Iran commenced??

The recent Russian ballistic missile sale to Syria and the arms deal between the US and Saudi Arabia, have Israel seeking to widen the technological gap in warfare between the IDF and Arab militaries.

Jerusalem is optimistic and believes Washington will agree to meet previously declined demands for advanced weaponry, such as "bunker busters" – bombs which are designed to penetrate hardened undergound targets – such as bunkers, as implied by their name – as well as advanced cruise missiles.

Such explosives may one day be used in a strike on
Iran's nuclear facilities.

Now pay close attention to this paragraph;

Barak's people said that despite recent tensions between Israel and the US regarding the questions of settlement freeze and the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, the two countries remain close and friendly, especially on matters of defense, which Barak's people believe will now translate into meeting Israel's weaponry requests.

See it here;,7340,L-3956902,00.html

Let's hope that this paragraph is true...and that we are remaining close and friendly to Israel...especially on matters of defense. Because I agree with Michelle Bachmann, that the day we start crossing and cursing Israel will be about the day that America ceases to exist.

What a messed up world we live in....where the greatest technology research goes to develop ever better ways for weapons to kill human beings...and the USA is the leading developer, purveyor and user of these tools.

It will be nice when Jesus is sitting on the throne ruling with an iron we can melt our swords and trade them in for farm equipment....and the crops will grow so fast that the harvester will follow the planter. (Isaiah)

Doomsday Warning Gains Ground

I don't need much commentary to add to will just pluck out some key paragraphs.

Remember, America can't be found in prophecy, which means she won't be a player when the last 7 years get played out for the Jews. So what we are "watching" for is the decline (disappearance?) of America.

Boston University professor Laurence Kotlikoff, who warned as far back as the 1980s of the dangers of a public deficit, lent credence to such dark predictions in an International Monetary Fund publication last week.

He unveiled a doomsday scenario -- which many dismiss as pure fantasy -- of an economic clash between superpowers the United States and China, which holds more than 843 billion dollars of US Treasury bonds.

"A minor trade dispute between the United States and China could make some people think that other people are going to sell US treasury bonds," he wrote in the IMF's Finance & Development review.

"That belief, coupled with major concern about inflation, could lead to a sell-off of government bonds that causes the public to withdraw their bank deposits and buy durable goods."

Kotlikoff warned such a move would spark a run on banks and money market funds as well as insurance companies as policy holders cash in their surrender values.

"In a short period of time, the Federal Reserve would have to print trillions of dollars to cover its explicit and implicit guarantees. All that new money could produce strong inflation, perhaps hyperinflation," he said.

"There are other less apocalyptic, perhaps more plausible, but still quite unpleasant, scenarios that could result from multiple equilibria."

For anyone who was in adult ed is just one more article that references the International Monetary Fund. They are literally showing up everywhere!

Wating for the Apocalypse

The number one headline on Google this afternoon is a group of 13 missing people in California. Evidently they had all gone off together to await the Apocalypse.

Believed to be led by Reyna Marisol Chicas, a 32-year-old woman from Palmdale, the group left behind cell phones, identification, deeds to property and disturbing letters before disappearing on Saturday, according to Los Angeles County Sheriff's Captain Mike Parker. Authorities said it appeared they had gone off to await an apocalyptic event.

"Essentially, the letters say they are all going to heaven to meet Jesus and their deceased relatives," sheriff's department spokesman Steve Whitmore said. "Some of the letters were saying goodbye."

"They indicated they were going to the next life, if you will. I'm not quoting exactly, I'm paraphrasing of course, but that's essentially what they said," Whitmore added.

See it here;

Of course one other event that we expect to see more of is the increase in cults and people claiming to have "special knowledge from God" and also false Christs. Jesus warned us of this.

And of course what we are NOT supposed to do is go off into the mountains and wait for Christ's return. The exact opposite is true. We are supposed to remain where Christ has put us... continuing to be salt and light to an ever darkening world and continuing to cultivate relationships with the unsaved souls that Christ has put in our midst.

Seven Major Signs to Watch

This morning in adult ed we talked about 7 major prophetic signs that we are watching. Since my writing is very poor on a white board and some didn't have pens...I will post them here.

#1 Holocaust and re-emergence of Israel-reference Ezekiel 37

#2 Jerusalem will be a burden to the world-reference Zechariah 12:2-3

#3 Dramatic increase in travel and knowledge-reference Daniel 12:4

#4 Exponential growth in frequency of wars, famines and earthquakes-Matthew 24:3-8

#5 Rise of Magog alliance. Magog is Russia, Meshech and Tubal are the old Soviet satellites and/or all the "stans"....Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, etc..., Persia is Iran, Cush is Ethiopia, Put is Libya, Gomer is Turkey, Togarmah is Turkey, Armenia, and the Turkish speaking people of Asia Minor. Reference Ezekiel 38 and 39.

#6 Rise of Global government and one world currency. Reference Revelation 13:7

#7 Good new of the Gospel preached throughout the world. Reference Matthew 24:14

Also some scripture we referenced this morning were Psalm 83 which speaks of a war coming between Israel and her enemies on her immediate borders and Isaiah 17 concerning the destruction of Damascus.

So start digging through these for yourselves. As Max says, "Whatever you dig out of the Bible for get to keep!"
