    • Many have stated that it is impossible to know whether or not we are living in the last days before the second coming of Jesus Christ. However, below you will find dramatic proof that these are the endtimes. The proofs below defy coincidence. Euphrates River to Be Dried Up In Revelation 16:12, the Bible predicts that the Euphrates River will be dried up to prepare the way for the kings of the east to invade Israel. This will happen at the time of the battle of Armageddon according to verse 16 of the same chapter. The battle of Armageddon will be the final battle at which time Jesus will return and fight on the side of the nation of Israel. Immediately thereafter He will establish His kingdom and usher in His one thousand-year reign of peace. On January 13, 1990, the Indianapolis Star carried the headline “Turkey Will Cut Off Flow of Euphrates for One Month.” The article stated that a huge reservoir had been built by Turkey. While filling up the reservoir, the flow of the Euphrates would be stopped for one month and a concrete plug for a diversion channel built. These things have now been done. With this newly built dam, Turkey has the ability to stop the Euphrates River at will. The conditions for fulfilling this 1,900 year-old prophecy are now in place. China Goes to War In Revelation 9:15-16, the Bible prophesies that an army of 200 million soldiers will launch a war which would kill “the third part of men.” Never in the history of the world until our present generation has there been a power on earth that could field 200 million soldiers. However, the late ruler of China, Mao Tse Tung boasted in his diary that he could field an army of 200 million. The CIA World Factbook reports that in the year 2001, it is estimated that China has 200,886,946 men of military age, and this number is growing by 10 million per year. Worldwide Numbering System Predicted In Revelation 13, the Bible prophesies that a world dictator will soon rule over a world government. He will cause all people in the earth to receive a number without which they will be unable to buy or sell. We are seeing this prophecy fulfilled before our eyes in a most astonishing way. Nearly every human being in the world now has been assigned a number. In America it is our Social Security number. In the past few years, we have seen this number extended to newborns. A child without a Social Security number cannot be declared as a dependent on an income tax return. We have seen the emergence of electronic money, shopping with credit cards, and many people urging the abolishment of cash. All of these things could not possibly have been fulfilled until this present time. Only after the invention of the computer could such a worldwide numbering system be administered. The Emergence of a New World Order Revelation 13:7 and Daniel 7:23 prophesy the establishment of a world government. The term “New World Order” has become a prevalent phrase in the world’s political culture. Mikhail Gorbachev made the term famous, and Pope John Paul II has referred to it repeatedly. In the September 12, 1990 issue of the Chicago Tribune, our former president George Bush said, “Iraq is the first test for the New World Order.” He emphatically stated that the Iraq War is Saddam Hussein against the world. The United Nations’ troops are continually referred to as the multi-national forces. The decision has been made to establish an interdependent community of nations that will rule the world under United Nations authority. The Bible says that this will lead us into a great world govern- ment. The formation of this government is at hand. or Divine Providence? Is it coincidental that all of these major prophecies pertaining to the last times are being fulfilled simultaneously? Hardly. Source: Endtime Magazine, P.O.

    • P R O P H E C Y T O U R 2 0 0 4 Israel»Greece»Patmos Tour UN Headquarters in NY & Enjoy 3 Day Greek Islands Cruise Where are the two most exciting places on earth to travel during the year 2004? How about Jerusalem, and Bethlehem where our Lord was born over 2,000 years ago and the Isle of Patmos where the Book of Revelation was written? Add to that Nazareth, Samaria, Judea, Athens, Corinth, Mars Hill, Ephesus, Rhodes, and a Mediterranean Sea cruise—and you have the trip of a lifetime! I want to personally invite you to join us for Prophecy Tour 2004. You won’t want to miss it! In Israel: We will stand on the Mount of Olives where Jesus will stand when He returns—Visit the Temple Mount itself where the Third Temple will soon be built— See the cornerstone intended for the rebuilding of the Third Temple—At the Temple Institute we will see the vessels and the garments already prepared for resumption of temple worship—Visit the Garden Tomb and the Garden of Gethsemane—See the site of the coming Battle of Armageddon—We will visit Judean settlements where Jesus prophesied great tribulation will come in the near future (Matthew 24:15-21)—Boat across the Sea of Galilee where Jesus walked on the water—and much, much more! In Greece: We will visit the home of the Corinthian church in Corinth, and visit Mars Hill in Athens where Paul preached his famous sermon concerning the “Unknown God.” Mediterranean Sea Cruise: The first stop will be the beautiful and famous island of Mykonos. Then we sail to the Island of Rhodes (Acts 21:1). The next day we visit Patmos where John wrote the Book of Revelation. The last day of the cruise takes us to Ephesus. Ephesus is the most incredible archaeological site I have ever visited. We will walk on the Roman roads that Paul walked on 2,000 years ago, and stand in the 23,000-seat theater where the Ephesians shouted “Great is the goddess Diana” for two hours! The ship will be our floating hotel and restau- rant for these three beautiful, relaxing and exciting days. Those who went on our cruise three years ago have yet to quit talking about it! I’m sure it will be the same for you. The cost for the entire UN, Israel, Greece, and Mediterranean Sea Cruise will be $2,750 plus tips and taxes. You can ensure your place on the tour by Irvin Baxter sending a deposit of $250 as soon Tour Host as possible. Total payment will need to be made 60 days before departure.

On November 13th, Alabama’s nine-member Court of the Judi- ciary voted unanimously to oust Moore for refusing to obey a federal judge’s order to remove the Ten Commandments monu- ment. Judge Moore, in essence, said, should I obey man rather than God? Moore has filed an appeal challenging his removal as Alabama’s chief justice.

They are: the Revival of the Holy Roman Empire; the confirming of some kind of agreement concerning the Holy Land by the world community; a war that will kill one-third part of men; the estab- lishment of a world government; and the creation of an economic system that will require some kind of number or mark in order to buy or sell.

Taiwanese President Chen Shui-bian wants to include a referendum on the ballot, which would call for China to remove these threatening mis- siles and to cease her threats of invasion against Taiwan. China has no intentions of removing the missiles and considers such a referendum tantamount to a declaration of independence.

Oftentimes, science textbooks will state that “uniformitarian- ism” (evolution) provides an “alternative” and “is in contradic- tion to the literal interpretation of the Bible.” A Prentice Hall Teacher’s Edition biology text- book in a section entitled “Teaching Tips” states: “Point out to students that Darwin could very easily have dismissed all of his observations, or simply attributed them to a mysterious force or deity.” This textbook is stating that students can dismiss their science and believe in their deity. In other words, if you believe in God, it is necessary to dismiss science. This is simply not true! For in John 17:17, Jesus says in His prayer His “word is truth.” Therefore, all true sci- ence will agree with the Bible, and it does!
