ESCHATOLOGY & THE NEW WORLD ORDER
ESCHATOLOGY - SECTION 4
THE MILLENNIAL KINGDOM - PART A
The second appearing of Messiah to Planet Earth will be the most earth shaking event ever to happen on this planet. The whole world will be tuned in to His power and glory.
A few years previous to this event, the world dictator ... the anti-Messiah or anti-Christ ... will arise from the 10 nation confederacy that will be formed from the European Union (EU) or the Confederacy of Arab Nations, or a combination of them both. This coming world dictator, the anti-Messiah, will be the one who implements the one world government.
A few months previous to the second appearance of Messiah to earth there will be millions of people killed in fighting and terrorism. Jerusalem will be under attack, with plunder happening from house to house, women being raped, and half the city of Jerusalem going into captivity. [Zechariah 14:2] It will be a time of trouble worse than the Nazi holocaust. [Jeremiah 30:5-6] The Jews will actually start experiencing extreme persecution about 42 months AFTER the world dictator takes over control and about 42 months BEFORE Messiah returns.
The 10 nation confederacy that will be comprised of governments in both Europe and the Middle East will ultimately have the political clout to control the Mediterranean. Some of these 10 countries may be from Western Asia and North Africa, but most of them will probably be from Europe. The final leader of this confederacy will overthrow three (3) of the 10 nations by a political, military and governmental takeover.
Today, in addition to disease and famine issues, the leaders of the dominant nations are concerned with three (3) primary factors:
1. Attaining peace among nations and ethnic groups;
2. Guaranteeing the flow of oil; and,
3. Stopping terrorism and conflict in the Middle East (especially between Israel and the Palestinians). The CHIEF bargaining factor will be the city of Jerusalem!
What to watch for: Leadership ... a leader ... arising from Arab countries or Europe, quite probably with a Greek-Syrian background. That would be the same ethnic mix as Antiochus Epiphanes, an archetype of the anti-Christ, who desecrated the Jewish Temple at the time of the Maccabean revolt. [Daniel 9:24-27 and Daniel 11:31]. The prophecy in Daniel probably had a double fulfillment in both Antiochus Epiphanes and the anti-Christ. Yeshua (Jesus) Himself gave validation to this in Matthew 24:15:
"Therefore, when you see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place, then let those who are in Judea flee into the mountains ... for there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor shall ever be." [Matthew 24:15-31]
As mentioned above, Jerusalem will be under attack. This will happen probably after the "one world" system starts falling apart. The reason being that the anti-Christ ... the world dictator ... needs to maintain some semblance of beneficence to the Jews and Israel for a while after his takeover.
Remember ... the KEY to getting the Jews to sign a treaty of peace with the Palestinians and the Arab nations is a COVENANT for seven years, which will most likely allow the Jews to build their temple on or near the Holy Mount. In the middle of the seven years, 42 months BEFORE Messiah returns to earth to establish His kingdom, the covenant is broken by the false messiah, the world dictator, and the temple is desecrated like Daniel and Jesus foretold. [Daniel 9:27; Matthew 24:15-27; Revelation 13:3-8]
The spirits of demons, performing signs and counterfeit miracles (lying wonders) will be sent out by Satan to the leaders of the whole world and gather them to the great day of El Shaddai (God Almighty) at Mount Megiddo (Armageddon). Just previous to this, the Euphrates River in Iraq is dried up, to make passage for military forces from the east to attack Israel. [Revelation 16:12-14]
The whole world will be amazed by the shaking of the earth, an earthquake so great that every island will move away and mountains will disappear. God will pour out the fierceness of His wrath upon Babylon. [Revelation 16:17-21]
The false messiah (the anti-Christ) and the leaders of the nations, with their armies, will gather together to fight against the Messiah of God, Yeshua ha Meshiach (Jesus the Christ). The leaders of the world will be deceived by the counterfeit miracles of the demons, and they will be influenced to do only what an idiot would even think about doing: fighting against the Lord!
