Much has been written concerning end time prophecy, including many who are saying that Armageddon is the next event on the prophetic calendar. I am here to tell you that it will be the last thing that happens before Christ's 1,000 year reign on earth. The next prophetic benchmark will be the signing of a 7 year covenant(mid-east peace treaty) between Israel, the Plaestinians, and and numerous other nations. This agreement has been attempted for years to no avail, but appears to be looming on the horizon.
Once in place, the Palestinians will have their own state, and Israel will gain access to the temple mount site, and be granted permission to construct their long awaited 3rd Temple. After
completion, animal sacrifice will be reinstituted under Levitical law, as in the past. It will continue
until 30 days before the middle of the 7 year period. At that point, the armies of the one who will become anti-christ break the treaty, invade Jerusalem, and stop the daily sacrifice in the temple.
They will set up what Jesus and Daniel refer to as the "abomination of desolation."
It will include all the mechanisms to accomplish what the anti-christ will perpetrate upon all kindreds, nations, and tongues. 1. the mark of the beast(anti-christ; 666) and 2. the erection of his image.
The anti-christ, ruling from the Jewish temple, will require everybody in the world to receive a mark(most likely a computer chip implant) that will contain all information and location of the recepient. Anyone who refuses to comply with the new universal system will be unable to buy or sell at that point. Also, anyone who refuses to worship his image under the direction of the false prophet will be killed.
This system will be in place for 1,260 days(3 1/2 lunar years) under authority of the A.C. I
believe the majority of the world will participate willing, thinking this new charismatic leader
is doing what is best for mankind. Don't be deceived. Anti-christ comes first, then Jesus Christ, contrary to what is being taught in mainstream religion. Everyone will be here on earth for this 7 year period, the second half being the great tribulation. Jesus returns immediately after the tribulation at the 7th(last) Trumpet, resurrecting(rapturing) all believers, including those who are alive and remaining.We are caught up to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb in heaven, while at the same time, the 7 vials of God's wrath are poured out on all unbelievers who are left. Near the end of the wrath, at the 6th vial , Jesus returns to the earth with the believers in our resurrected bodies, on white horses, to defeat antichrist, the false prophet and their armies at the battle of Armageddon. Then every knee shall bow, and every tongue confess that Jesus is the King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.
Anyone who takes the mark of the beast will recieve the wrath of God. This means no true Christian can participate in the mainstream economy when this comes into place. Study your bible, increase your faith, trust in God with all your life. The life of you and your loved ones is in the balance. As Christians, we will be required to live outside the mainstream society under antichrist for 31/2 years. Get prepared. It's not that far off. Take this seriously. Research it for yourself. God will take care of his own. He is still on the throne. Even if you are martyred for the cause, your eternal rewards will be even greater. Don't worry. We win in the end!
