  • † Proof † we are living in 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 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 ü In revelatIon 9:15-16, the bIble prophesIes that an army of 200 mIllIon M 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 any have stated that it 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. is impossible to know The CIA World Factbook reported that, in the year 2001, it was estimated that whether or not we are living China had 200,866,946 men of military age and that this number is growing by 10 million per year. in the last days before the Second Coming of Jesus Worldwide Numbering System Predicted ü Christ. However, there is 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 dramatic proof that we are 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 living in the endtimes – proof human being in the world has now been assigned a number. In America, it is that defies coincidence. 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 actually 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 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?

  • O roadmap for peace piece |dividing god’s land BY KEN RAGGIO ne of the most important documents of modern times is the initiative to bring about peace in the Middle East. The document called “The Roadmap for Peace” is a two-state solution to the Israeli- Palestinian conflict. The Roadmap, if enacted in full detail, will do more to strip Israel of its lands, the integrity of its political sovereignty and its biblical identity, than any other modern event. At the same time, it will establish the State of Palestine, enforce one of the greatest concessions to terrorism in modern history and finalize one of Israel’s greatest compromises ever. In the global push for Middle East peace, even Christians and Jews tend to forget that the formation of a Palestinian state is an abdication of Israel’s divine claim to the Promised Land. Israel is duty-bound to fend for the territory God appointed her through covenants with Abraham UN RWA Photo Archives and his descendants — Isaac and SWELLING OF THE JORDAN. Jacob. Her failure to do so is certain to elicit a divine retort. Above: Palestinian Refugees in Jordan (1967).

  • # become such an important document to the future of the world, it is only natural that we should ask: Who con- structed the Beirut Declaration? Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah presented the original text to the Arab leaders, who then adopted it with revisions. Significantly, the Declaration itself did not attract the interest or support of Western powers until Jordanian King Abdullah traveled to 10 Downing Street in London on April 22, 2002, and talk- ed with Prime Minister Tony Blair. That same day, the King called on the United words Bush used almost five months earlier. Javier Solana represented the EU, Colin Powell the US, Kofi Annan the UN, and Igor Ivanov the Russian Federation. On April 30, 2003, almost one year exactly after the King of Jordan and the Crown Prince of Saudi met with President Bush, the U.S. Department of State officially published the “Road- map.” wHAT IMPEllED jORDAN’S KINg TO CHAMPION THIS CAUSE?
