There has been recently at the beginning of this year, a flurry of events to begin to lay the pathway in th soon coming years for the eventual rise to power of the penultimate world ruler, the Seventh world king, the Antichrist, in the spirit of the Devil, aka Satan over a One World Government (Daniel 8:23–24) (1 John 2:18).
The prophet Daniel explained said: “[AND IN THE LATTER TIME OF THEIR KINGDOM, WHEN THE TRANSGRESSORS ARE COME TO THE FULL, A KING OF FIERCE COUNTENANCE, AND UNDERSTANDING DARK SENTENCES, SHALL STAND UP]. And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practice, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people” (Daniel 8:23–24).
“And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, [AND BY PEACE SHALL DESTROY MANY]: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand” (Daniel 8:25).
Our Lord Jesus warns us to NOT BE DECEIVED, saying: “[FOR THERE SHALL ARISE FALSE CHRISTS], and false prophets, and [SHALL SHEW GREAT SIGNS AND WONDERS]; insomuch that, [IF IT WERE POSSIBLE, THEY SHALL DECEIVE THE VERY ELECT]. Behold, I have told you before” (Matthew 24:24-25).
“And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads. And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name” (Revelation 13:16-17).
“And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, ‘Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?’” (Revelation 13:4).
However, God’s Elect will NOT worship the beast! As it is written:
“And ALL THAT DWELL UPON THE EARTH SHALL WORSHIP HIM, whose [NAMES ARE NOT WRITTEN IN THE BOOK OF LIFE OF THE LAMB] slain from the foundation of the world. [IF ANY MAN HAVE AN EAR, LET HIM HEAR]” (Revelation 13:8-9).
“Seek ye the LORD, [ALL YE MEEK OF THE EARTH], which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be [YE SHALL BE HID IN THE DAY] of the LORD’s anger” (Zephaniah 2:3).
“[FOR GOD HATH NOT APPOINTED US TO WRATH], but to [OBTAIN SALVATION BY OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST]” (1 Thessalonians 5:6-9).
“[FOR WHEN THEY SHALL SAY, PEACE AND SAFETY; THEN SUDDEN DESTRUCTION COMETH UPON THEM], as travail upon a woman with child; [AND THEY SHALL NOT ESCAPE]” (1 Thessalonians 5:3).
Our Lord Jesus also says: “[FOR AS A SNARE SHALL IT COME ON ALL THEM THAT DWELL ON THE FACE OF THE WHOLE EARTH]. [WATCH YE THEREFORE, AND PRAY ALWAYS], that ye may be accounted [WORTHY TO ESCAPE ALL THESE THINGS] that shall come to pass, [AND TO STAND BEFORE] the Son of man” (Luke 21:35-36).
“The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen” (Philippians 4:23).
