WORLD EVENTS FROM A BIBLICAL PERSPECTIVE
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
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 government. 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?

Prophecy Tour 2003
Israel • Jordan • Tiberias
Now that the political situation in the Middle East has stabilized, I am very excited to
announce our next tour to the Holy Land. As always, this is a trip of a lifetime. I anticipate
that this one, however, will be extra special. There are two reasons. First, by the time we arrive,
the Road Map for Peace will be in full swing. We will feel the political climate—for most,
euphoria, for some, dread— as we tour the land where God Almighty chose to place His name.
And second, by combining our Israel Tour with a 3-day swing through Jordan, this will be one
of the LEAST EXPENSIVE tours we will ever be able to offer—only $2,095 for 11 days!
I want to personally invite you to join us for Prophecy Tour 2003. You won’t want to miss
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 intend-
ed 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)—Sail across the Sea of Galilee where Jesus walked on the water—and
much, much more!
Jordan is the only nation that the Bible specifically says will not be invaded by the
Antichrist. Daniel 11:41 speaks of the Antichrist: “He shall enter also into the glorious land,
and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom,
and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon.” Edom is Petra in southern Jordan, the
Moab Mountains are in Jordan, and Amman is the capital city of the nation of Jordan. While
there we will visit Petra, the incredible ruins of the ancient Roman city, Jerash, and stand on
the top of Mount Nebo—the place from which God showed Moses the Promised Land just
before he died. Mount Nebo overlooks Jericho, and if it’s a clear day, we may catch a glimpse
of Jerusalem in the distance.
How You Can Join Us
The cost for the entire Israel-Jordan trip will be $2,095 plus tips and taxes. We leave from
Chicago’s O’Hare Airport. You can ensure your place on the tour by sending a deposit of $250

Peace Summit in Aqaba in early June,
Endtime interviewed Mr. Uri Dan, a
journalist for the New York Post who has
published more than 20 books on the
Middle East and Israel. He also is a long-
time friend of Israeli Prime Minister
Ariel Sharon, and served as his personal
journalist for many years.
In this interview, Mr. Dan responded to
questions regarding, among other topics,
Israel’s sovereignty, the status of
Jerusalem, and the future of the Temple
Mount. In this transcription, we cleaned
up much of the dialogue while preserving
elements of his thick Israeli accent.
Uri Dan stressed that he takes full
responsibility for his comments, attribut-
ing his statements and observations only
to himself and not to the Prime Minister.
Uri Dan: Shalom from Israel. The
Temple Mount is in Israel’s hands. The
sovereignty is kept by Israel. The Muslim

Road Map to Bloodshed

BY DAVID DOLAN
David Dolan is a Jerusalem-based author
and journalist. This most insightful article is
reprinted from ddolan.com.
The “Performance-Based Road Map to
a Permanent Solution to the Israeli-
Palestinian Conflict” proved to be leading
in the direction of more violence during
June, not toward the touted “enduring
peace” that its advocates projected. World
leaders, including American President
George Bush, seemed taken aback by the
fresh river of blood that flowed in the
Roadmap's wake. Given that every previ-
ous “land for peace” plan had led to sharp
escalations in both Israeli and Palestinian
death tolls, international leaders should
have anticipated the renewed bloodbath
that followed the plan's formal introduc-
tion at the end of April.
