Euphrates River to Be Dried Up ü
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 during which
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 ü
In revelatIon 9:15-16, the Bible prophesies that an army of 200 million
soldiers will launch a war which will 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
any have stated that Mao Tse Tung boasted in his diary that he could field an army of 200 million.
The CIA World Factbook reported that in the year 2001 it was estimated that
it is impossible to China had 200,866,946 men of military age and that this number is growing

Worldwide Numbering System Predicted ü
not we are living in the last days In revelatIon 13, the Bible prophesies that a world dictator will soon rule over
a world government. He will cause all people on the earth to receive a number
before the Second Coming of 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
Jesus Christ. However, there is in the world has now been assigned a number. In America, it is our Social
Security number. In the past few years, we have seen this number extended
dramatic proof that we are living 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
in the endtimes—proof that electronic money, shopping with credit cards, and many people actually urging
the abolition of cash. All of these things could not possibly have been fulfilled
defies coincidence. 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 ü
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 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 was 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 government. The formation of this government is at hand.
Coincidence or Divine Providence? ü
Is It coIncIdental that all of these major prophecies pertaining to the last
times are being fulfilled simultaneously? Hardly!
