For years, I have been writing about a coming war between Iran, the USA, and Israel and with the current events unfolding in the Middle East, it seems war is coming soon.
Out of this war, the man of sin will rise to power as a hero to whom Israel will believe he is their long-awaited military messiah. Soon, after the war, Israel will begin rebuilding Jerusalem and a group of Israelite will reinstate the daily sacrifice. The man of sin will quickly turn against Israel. First, he will stop the daily sacrifices and he will replace it with his god of abomination in the temple demanding Israel to worship it. Many will refuse and will flee to the mountains for safety. Jesus warned about this future event.
So when you see the abomination of desolation spoken of by the prophet Daniel, standing in the holy place, then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.Matthew 24:15,16
For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, and never will be.Matthew 24:21
Listen, Jesus said this great tribulation will be so bad that nothing in history can compare.
The man of sin along with his false prophet will control the world’s religions and the world economy. The only way during the great tribulation to feed your family or receive medical care or have a job is to join and follow the new worldwide system.
Christians will not be able to buy or sell unless they leave their faith and many will do just that. There will be a great falling away from Christianity at this time. Many will believe in the false miracles the false prophet performs and others will fall away out of fear.
The churches today have failed to teach and prepare Christians for what is coming. You might ask if the end is going to be so horrible and there is little truth out there being taught how can anyone during this time make it to heaven?
God will send to the world teachers, they will only speak what is the truth, They are the 144,000 that God will anoint. They will take the pure gospel to the whole world and then they will be killed. In the book of Revelation, they are called the first fruits to God. Did you know in times of persecution the church grows the fastest?
John who wrote the book of Revelation asked:
“Who are these, clothed in white robes, and from where have they come?”
I said to him, “Sir, you know.” And he said to me, “These are the ones coming out of the great tribulation.Rev. 7:13-14
The truth is most Christians worldwide will die before the tribulation is over; only a few will be alive when Jesus returns. Jesus warned us about the fate of the Christians with the opening of the 5th seal.
“O Sovereign Lord, holy and true, how long before you will judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?”Rev. 6:10
God answers them:
Then they were each given a white robe and told to rest a little longer until the number of their fellow servants and their brothers should be complete, who were to be killed as they themselves had beenRev. 6:11
I believe we are very close to the arrival of the man of sin and his false prophet and only the elect will understand what is going on.
It will be difficult to stay alive during the great tribulation. However, you can at least prepare now by buying things you can barter with when Christians are no longer allowed to buy or sell to survive.
Don’t buy anything you are not willing to walk away from, like a new home or a new car. Don’t let your life’s possessions be a stumbling block for you during the great tribulation.
Temptation will be one of the man of sin weapons against us.
Keep your attention on the Middle East.
Jerusalem is God’s holy city and Satan’s desire.
