    • 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 3 Day Greek Islands Cruise Where are the two most exciting places on earth to travel during the year 2004? How about Jerusalem 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 Beth- lehem, 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 Israel, Greece, and Mediterranean Sea Cruise will be $2,750 plus tips and taxes. You can insure your place on the tour by sending a Irvin Baxter deposit of $250 as soon as possi- Tour Host ble. Total payment will need to be made 60 days before departure.

Is something going on behind the scenes? Unfortu- nately, too many people are content to believe what they hear on the evening news without ever searching out the answers for themselves. The Quotes, The Facts The original intent of the First Amend- ment was that there was not to be, by gov- ernment decree, one Christian denomi- nation running the nation as had been the case in England. Consider the word- ing that had been proposed by James Madison: “Congress shall make no law to establish a national religion.” In fact, the last iteration before the final wording read, “Congress shall make no law establishing any particular denom- ination in preference to others.” These, as well as other documented iterations, illustrate that the words “reli- gion” and “denomination” were inter- changeable. With that in mind, here is a possible reading: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of denomination or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” The original intent is now becoming Granite of Controversy (Photo: Foundation for Moral Law) clearer.

    • C O V E R S T O R Y Sixth Trumpet Wolfowitz stresses that, if the U.S. is to put its stamp on this world and create an Americanized New World Order of free- dom and democracy, it must control the Middle East. Until then, America will con- tinue to be subject to blackmail by the oil cartel. He also understands that the U.S. must control Southeast Asia. America’s num- ber one threat to supremacy in the 21st century is China, a nation whose Gross National Product is projected to surpass the United States’ sometime between 2015 and 2020. It’s also a nation that is undergoing a dramatic military buildup. The U.S. is determined to prevent China from becoming a viable rival for world leadership. Many people are very pleased that Wol- fowitz has become such a tremendously influential force in the world. Others, on the other hand, react to his power with fear. Those who are familiar with Bible prophecy, however, see that Wolfowitz’s ideas, particularly those advocating regime change in North Korea, could lead to the massive war prophesied in Rev- elation 9:13-16 that will kill one-third of mankind. The man who said in 1992 that Iraq Illustration by Corbin Runnels and North Korea would have to be dealt with someday, appears to be in the dri- lies ahead often enough to cause Presi- ver’s seat.

Is Qureia “Solano’s man”? Fencing the Promised Land The Israeli cabinet voted to continue construction on the security fence that is designed to keep terrorists out of Israel’s borders. The U.S. expressed its displeas- ure with the decision to extend the fence to include the city of Ariel (pop. about 17,000). In a move to appease the U.S., Israel announced that it would not build that portion of the fence at this time. Sol- diers will guard the gap in the structure. Settlers living in Judea-Samaria (West Bank) are concerned that the fence destroys their vision of a “greater Israel”. They believe that Israel should occupy all of the Promised Land as defined in scrip- ture. Much of it will remain outside the security fence. Many believe a permanent border between Israel and a new Palestin- ian state will be defined by the fence. Two- thirds of the Jewish settlers, about 150,000 people, will be left on the Palestinian side of the fence, or as settler spokesperson, EN DTI M E MAGAZI N E N OV / D EC 2003 21
    • T H E N A N D N O W After a time, the Medes and the Persians overthrew the empire of Babylon, replacing it with the Media-Persian Empire. Nehemiah became one of the most trusted men in the court of the Persian King Artaxerxes. He was the king’s cupbearer. His job was to taste the king’s wine to ensure that it hadn’t been poi- soned. He was obviously in a position of ultimate trust. In the second chapter of the book of Nehemiah, we read of the day when Nehemiah went before the king with a sad coun- tenance. He had never before been down in the presence of the king. Artaxerxes inquired concerning why Nehemiah was so sad. His reply is recorded in verse 3: “…why should not my countenance be sad, when the city, [Jerusalem] the place of my fathers' sepulchres, lieth waste, and the gates thereof are con- An Israeli soldier stands guard over workers building NEHEMIAH’S sumed with fire?” a concrete security wall separating the Israeli town King Artaxerxes loved of Kfar Saba from the West Bank Palestinian town Nehemiah very much for having & WALL of Qalqiliya.

Now, the same as 2600 years ago, the enemies of Israel are desperate to stop the building of Israel’s security wall. The struggle to fortify Jerusalem in Nehemi- ah’s day ushered in the Second Temple era. The conflict we are witnessing today over Israel’s security fence is ushering in the Third Temple era. Third Temple Revival The First Temple was built by Solomon in 968 B.C. In 586 B.C., it was destroyed due of Israel’s rebellion and disobedi- ence. Seventy years later, in Nehemiah’s day, the Second Temple era was born. Those alive and active during this era were the likes of Daniel, Ezra, Zerubba- bel, Habakkuk and Zechariah. Through their leadership and preaching, the peo- ple were motivated to revive the nation and to build the Second Temple. A Third Temple revival is underway in the land of Israel.

    • P R O P H E C Y I N S I G H T PRETERISM: What is it Recently there has been a renaissance of the doctrine of preterism. The word preterism means past. Essentially, preterists believe that the prophecies of the Bible have all been fulfilled. Is it scriptural Full preterists teach that all the prophecies, including the Second Coming, were fulfilled by 70 AD. Partial preterists believe all the prophecies of the book of Revelation have been fulfilled up through Revelation 19.. ?

Revelation 1:7 describes this to the Messiah. Would the Messiah ever fig tree putting forth its leaves, then we coming in the clouds: “Behold, he “have indignation against the holy know that summer is near. Likewise, when cometh with clouds; and every eye shall covenant?” Would he ever “pollute the sanctu- ary of strength?” Obvi- ously not! The entirety of Daniel 11:21-45 is dis- cussing the actions of the king of the north — the Antichrist. So we can see clearly that it is the Antichrist, not the Messiah, who takes away the daily sac- rifice and places the abomination of desola- tion. Remember that the one who takes away the daily sacrifice also is the one who confirms the covenant according to Daniel 9:27. So we know for certain that it is the Antichrist, not the Mes- siah, who will confirm the covenant for seven years. Daniel 11:22 strengthens this proof Roman General Titus destroys the Second Temple in 70 AD.

    • How Do Your Investments Stack Up? I f you’re looking to protect and grow your portfolio, savings and retirement plan in the years ahead, we have the perfect solution – gold. Simply put, it’s the ideal diversification for you and your portfolio. It’s as if gold were custom-designed for our time. First off, gold is real. It’s an investment you get to hold. And control. Gold doesn’t depend on anyone’s promise to repay. And, unlike stocks or currency, gold isn’t merely symbolic of value — gold is value...a value that’s expected to rise over the coming years. Consider These Strong “Buy” Signals Because the dollar is facing unprecedented declines, more people in the know are turning to gold, the world’s default currency. Clearly, that will send gold skyrocketing. Our deficit is expected to surpass $540 billion this year. To fund it, the U.S. must take in $55 billion per day! This unimaginable excess begs for the quiet assurance of gold. The World Gold Council is forecasting $450 gold, while many analysts, like John Hathaway of the Tocqueville Fund, believe gold will test $1,000 an ounce!
