    • 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.

Sharon warned that the Palestinians would not receive as good a deal if Israel were forced to separate unilaterally. Therefore, he urged the Pales- tinians to move forward quickly to enact the Roadmap for Peace. Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon speaks during a convention on security in the Israeli coastal town of Herzliya on December 18, 2003. Sharon stated during this major policy address that Israel would start its own separation moves if the U.S.- backed Roadmap for Peace fails, specifical- ly, if the Palestinians do not make moves toward peace within six months.

    • » MARKOFTHEBEAST no further RFID experiments were being planned. In September, CASPIAN turned out to protest RFID's version of a coming of age party: the official launch of the Electronic Product Code (EPC) network in Chicago. This is the event where “deputized evangelists” were enlisted to help spread the “holy grail” of RFID like a contagion to attendees. (These are real phrases, taken from actual documents and individuals promoting the event. Religious terminology abounded.) “EPC” is the official name for the RFID tags slated to replace the bar code on all manufactured products, thus turning the things we buy into tracking devices. Over 30 demonstrators turned out to protest the EPC network launch, which we planned to coincide with Gillette's “Reasons to Believe” speech. Some took time off from work and school and oth- ers drove over two hours in Chicago's notorious rush hour traffic to attend.

Almost overnight their focus shifted from tracking people and purchases to tracking RFID bumper stickers from www.weirdbytes.com/rfid/bstickers.htm inventory in back room warehouses, far from public scrutiny. Since that time, no company has dared to publicly attempt live RFID tests involving consumers in the United States. Any trials that had already taken place have been buried and quietly covered up. Companies have not been entirely successful in destroying evidence of their trials, however.

Genesis 12:3: “And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all fami- lies of the earth be blessed.” Genesis 15:18: “In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates.” God gave the land to Abraham and his promised seed – to Isaac, not Ishmael. And then to Jacob, not Esau. Zephaniah 2:5: “Woe unto the inhab- itants of the sea coast, the nation of the Cherethites! the word of the LORD is against you; O Canaan, the land of the Philistines, I will even destroy thee, that there shall be no inhabitant.” Revelation 12 is a picture of the nation of Israel being protected from the dragon, Satan, during the endtime. She will be protected by God from those who would destroy her. If you are against Israel, then you are against God’s divine purpose. EN DTI M E MAGAZI N E MAR / APR 2004 29
