  5. 5. PrOOF THIS IS THE ENDTIME 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 M 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 by 10 million per year. know whether or not Worldwide Numbering System Predicted ü we are living in the last days before 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 the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. 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 However, there is dramatic proof that 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 we are living in the endtimes—proof 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 that defies coincidence. 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 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! endtimemagazine | November & December 2006 05
