Following are events that are happening right now in fulfillment of Bible prophecy.
1. Daniel 7:25 mentions the changing of the times and laws. This is being fulfilled by Islam with the implementation of Sharia Law. They also have their own calendar based on the life of Mohammed. This verse also mentions wearing "down the saints of the Highest One." Many believers are backing down in the face of opposition and lowering the bar, both spiritually and morally.
2. Matthew 24:5-12 and many other places in the Bible says that there will be a great deception and falling away from the faith, and that Christians will be hated on account of their beliefs. This is happening all around the world, even in the U.S.
3. Revelation 20:4 speaks of beheading. In 1980, 3000 Soviet troops were beheaded; in 2002 Daniel Pearl, an American journalist was beheaded; in 2004 Nicholas Berg, a Jewish American contractor was beheaded, and 2004 Kim Sun-il, a Korean Christian was beheaded for sharing his faith with the muslims. (This information was taken from THE ISLAMIC ANTI-CHRIST, by Joel Richardson, but has also been documented in the news reports.)
4. II Timothy 3:1-7 lists numerous characteristics of the end times, all true today.
5. I Timothy 4:1-2 speaks of a falling away from the faith, deceitful spirits, and the hyprocrisy of liars. Islam fits this description. It also has as its goal, world domination. (Daniel 7:23)
6. Isaiah 8:14-15 says that Israel will be a stumbling block to the world. That is happening.
7. Isaiah 9:10 gives a warning that has application to the 911 Twin Towers. Read the book entitled, THE HARBINGER, by Jonathan Cahn, or get his videos, to see what I am talking about.
8. Countries specifically mentioned as "trouble spots" in the last days, along with their contemporary names, are listed below:
Damascus = Egypt
Assyria = Syria
Tyre = Lebanon
Ammon, Edom, and Moab = Jordon
Babylon = Iraq
Magog and Rosh = Russia
Persia and Edom = Iran
Gomer = Turkey
Cush = Sudan and Ethiopia
Put = Libya and Algeria
Beth-togarmah = Central Asia
Sheba, Dedan = Saudi Arabia and the gulf region
Kings of the East = China, North Korea, Indonesia, and Pakistan (Revelation 16:12)
9. Verses that may have application to the United States are Haggai 2:7 and 22; Matthew 24:9, and Job 12:23.
10. If Revelation 17-18 are taken literally, it is significant because the ancient city of Babylon is being rebuilt, and it has been under construction since the time of Sadam Hussein.
11. There is a Tower Building being prepared for the European Parliament. All of the seats have a number and an occupant, except for one. That one is 666. Type in Tower Building 5th Parliament of Europe, on the internet and read up on it. There does, however, seem to be some question about the validity of all of this. Decide for yourself.
12. Terror is mentioned in Luke 21:11 (NASV)
13. Daniel 12:4 says travel and knowledge will increase. That obviously is happening at a staggering rate.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
