No book in the ancient world or the modern is as enigmatic, yet essential, to unlocking the mysteries of the prophetic plan for God’s future program for Israel than the book of Daniel.

The two climactic events of the Great Tribulation are the Campaign of Armageddon and the Second Coming of Jesus the Messiah.

by Prof. Johan Malan

Although the Bible does not explicitly state that a remnant in Israel will escape to Petra, this possibility is strongly implied by historical events, circumstantial evidence, and a prophecy about Jordan’s position in the tribulation period.

As world events unfold and division in America increases, Christians need discernment today more than ever. With all that’s happening around us, it is so easy to want to avoid reality or become comfortable and complacent, but we must not.

If the EU is the power out of which the antichrist will emerge it is likely that its power will increase not decrease. It is also likely that the merging of the European nations into the EU will be a step along the way to a global government with other blocs of nations coming together.

In the minds of many, the field of Bible Prophecy is more related to 'pie in the sky' notions that have no practical value to the believer's daily walk and life in the here and now. Yet, nothing could be further from the truth.

An aspect of the Kingship of the Messiah is the strange God-Man Concept concerning the Messiah.Some passages which deal with the Kingship of the Messiah add a whole new dimension to the Person of the Messiah, making Him a man – and yet more than a man.

The apostle Paul used the term bema when he wrote to the Corinthian church about our final confrontation with Christ to determine the gain or loss of rewards: 'For we must all appear before the judgement seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.'

The Old Testament books in the Bible (all of them written between 1450 BC and 430 BC) contained hundreds of prophecies about an “anointed one” who would arrive in their future.

by Britt Gillette

Is Bible prophecy really important? And if so, how important? And aren't people who expend more than a passing moment examining Bible prophecy simply uneducated crackpots and lunatics yearning for the destruction of the world? These are just a few of the questions bombarding today's Christians when it comes to the study of Bible prophecy.

Who will invade Israel?  His name is “Prince Gog,” and he is the ideological, demagogic and perennial antagonist against God and His chosen people. So in “latter days” he will instigate a full scale invasion of the Holy Land. Gog will assault “the land” from “the remote parts of the north”.

by Lee W. Brainard

In our day much of the church goes about her business as if the prophetic passages were not part of the Bible. These passages are routinely ignored, explained away, or dealt with in a superficial manner. The Bible clearly encourages Christians to watch for this day. The Bible plainly teaches that the Lord is coming back at the end of this age—physically, publicly, and gloriously—to judge the world and reward his saints.

The biblical description of the Gog army as being vast in size implies that at some future date Russian forces will flood into Syria. By establishing a forward operating base in Latakia, this move is now possible.

by Dr. David R. Reagan

The America I grew up in is gone. It is dead. And there is no hope of its resurrection. Incredibly, in just over 50 years since the decade of the 1960s, we have become a nation in full–blown, open rebellion against God. We are a nation that has rejected its Christian heritage and has replaced that precious heritage with a crude, paganized culture. We are a rebellious nation that is thumbing its nose at the Creator God who showered us with unparalleled blessings for over 300 years.

by Prof Johan Malan

Revelation is important because it is the last divinely inspired Bible book that was written. It is rightly positioned as the Bible’s final book. As the New Testament opens with the four Gospels relating to the first coming of Christ, so the book of Revelation closes the New Testament with the general theme of the second coming of Christ.

by Prof Johan Malan

By writing it down, John ensured that this important message would find its way to the entire church of Christ. In verse 2 he states that what he has described is an accurate record of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ. He is therefore merely a messenger of that which God Himself wishes to address to the church through Jesus Christ. Peter also plainly states the importance of the prophetic word.

by Prof Johan Malan

As will be evident from the discussion that follows, there is a great difference between the Church of Christ and the Christian church. The former includes those who sincerely belong to Christ because they have been washed from their sins in His blood. The latter includes all those who belong to Christian churches – including the nominal Christians who are not yet saved.

by Prof Johan Malan

The promise of the rapture is of critical importance for a correct understanding of Revelation. This subject has become so controversial because of the modern theological decline that we need to make clear what the Bible teaches about it. The word caught up in 1 Thessalonians 4:17 (harpazo in Greek) means to be snatched away quickly.

by Prof Johan Malan

All Christians have a definite appointment to appear before the judgement seat of Christ – whether they were good servants or not. Some of them will receive rewards, while others will stand empty-handed. The fact is that the servants of the Lord will have to give account of themselves.

by Prof Johan Malan

The first half of the tribulation will be characterised by a false peace, as well as by political, social, economic, and religious initiatives to unite humanity under the leadership of the Antichrist. When his peace and unification efforts fail, he will resort to an unprecedented reign of terror during the last 3½ years and introduce the bloodiest dictatorship the world has ever seen.

by Prof Johan Malan

Many people make the mistake of failing to identify Israel in the apocalyptic events of Revelation. Because of this ignorance, much of the Biblical perspective on the great tribulation is lost, as well as one of the most important prophetic signs of the end of the church's dispensation, namely the restoration of the people of Israel and their capital city, Jerusalem.

by Prof Johan Malan

The trumpet judgements that will be announced in the tribulation period will in most cases destroy a third of their targets. Both the physical creation and humanity will be affected. The first four trumpets cause a partial ecological collapse on earth. Many people and animals will die as a result of it.

by Prof Johan Malan

This prophecy was written 25 years after the temple of Herod was destroyed by the Romans in 70 AD, and can therefore only refer to a third, future rebuilt temple in Jerusalem. The third temple, which will be completed and put into service during the first half of the tribulation period. Because the world will be in spiritual darkness after the rapture, the Lord will raise up special witnesses to gather a harvest for the kingdom of God among Israel and the nations during that time.

by Prof Johan Malan

In the middle of the tribulation period Satan will make another effort to wipe Israel from the face of the earth. He wants to prevent the survival of a remnant of the nation who can meet the Messiah on the Mount of Olives to be spiritually restored and established in the millennial kingdom as the head of the nations. Satan knows very well if that happens it will be at the cost of his own world empire under the leadership of the Antichrist.

by Prof Johan Malan

After the 3½ year period of false peace has expired and has given place to the 3½ years of the great tribulation it will also be, spiritually, the darkest time in world history. The satanic triumvirate of the dragon (Satan), the beast (Antichrist), and the false prophet will then assume dictatorial powers on earth. They will make concerted efforts to crush the power of the Triune God, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, by destroying all people who worship the God of heaven. The Antichrist will claim the position of God.

by Prof Johan Malan

There are various opposites or contrasting statements in the book of Revelation, emerging from the great conflict between the kingdom of God and the kingdom of Satan. The antithesis between God and Satan is the reason for the evil struggle of Satan to become the ruler of the universe in the place of God. He is also intent on influencing and controlling, and even destroying, the human race which is part of the creation of God.

by Prof Johan Malan

The false prophet will play a big part in the government of the Antichrist. It will seemingly be a two-man government in which the Antichrist will act and rule in close association with the false prophet. In actual fact, it will be a three-man government since the devil – as the unseen spiritual power behind it – will have absolute control over this government. It will thus be a satanic triumvirate, which will be an imitation of the triune God.

by Prof Johan Malan

Revelation 14 is a prelude to the seven last plagues, or bowl judgements, that will culminate in the great battle of Armageddon. From this chapter it is evident that the Second Coming is at hand, and that Jesus is ready to enter into judgement against the nations of the world.

by Prof Johan Malan

In Revelation 17 and 18 respectively, John mentions two Babylons that will rise to prominence shortly before the advent of Christ. The one is mystical Babylon, referring to an evil ideology, or false system of religious worship, and the other one a commercial city with all kinds of worldly pleasure and immoral practices in it.

by Prof Johan malan

A development that is directly related to the tribulation period, is the rebuilding of the once renowned metropolis, Babylon, on the banks of the Euphrates River. As the birthplace of the Ancient World's pagan religion, this city must again emerge as the seat of a false universal religion. Babylon is in Iraqi territory and, since 1978, has been in process of reconstruction.

by Prof Johan Malan

On the last day of the great tribulation, during the battle of Armageddon, Jesus Christ will appear on a white horse, followed by the heavenly armies of angels and all His saints, to engage in a short but decisive battle with His enemies.

by Prof Johan Malan

When the Lord Jesus comes back to earth it will be as King of kings and Lord of lords. He will set up a government for the whole world with Jerusalem as capital.

by Prof Johan Malan

The reason why the Devil will not be cast into the lake of fire together with the Antichrist and the false prophet is that he will be used as a catalyst to make manifest the latent evil in unsaved people at the end of the millennium. They will then reveal their true character, which will clearly distinguish them from the saved people.

by Prof Johan Malan

It is necessary to offer a Biblical strategy for spiritual survival in the tribulation period to those who will not be ready to meet the heavenly Bridegroom, and will consequently be left behind. The main purpose with the strategy is to indicate to people how they can spiritually survive and ensure that they get to heaven despite the most gruesome tribulation and deception that they will have to face during the Antichrist's reign of terror.

Damascus is the capital of Syria and its second largest city, with about 2.6 million people in the metropolitan area. Today Syria is in the midst of a civil war. As a continuation of Arab Spring, as leaders are being ousted and replaced, there is also a movement to oust Syrian President Bashar Assad.  Damascus has already suffered a great deal of damage, but according the above mentioned Scriptures, Damascus will be taken away from being a city. Today, fighting in Damascus is on the rise.

The rebirth of the nation of Israel and the quest to establish Jerusalem as its capital has always been at the center of conflict between the Jews and the Arab-Islamic world. In all land negotiations that have been attempted notice that it was not the West Bank or Gaza or even the Golan Heights that have been the central point of contention. The issue has always been and ultimately will be the final status of Jerusalem. Of much importance is also the issue of the Temple Mount as well.

Just three days after the terrorist attacks on New York and Washington, D.C., Amazon.com reported on its website that three of the top ten best-selling books concerned the prophesies of Nostradamus, a 16th Century seer whom many claim prophesied modern events. Within a week after 9/11, the Internet began to buzz with email messages about the attacks being the fulfillment of a prophecy by Nostradamus.

When the disciples asked Jesus to describe the signs of His coming and the end of the age, He pointed to many signs. But one of the most often overlooked is the idea that when He returns, the world will be “like it was in the days of Noah.”

by Prof. Johan Malan

During the coming tribulation period the Jewish temple will be built here and sacrifices reinstituted. In the middle of this week the false messiah (the Antichrist) will declare himself to be God in the rebuilt temple and persecute all Jews who refuse to accept and worship him as God. At the end of the year-week the Antichrist will besiege Jerusalem and the entire land of Israel. He will know that the true King of the Jews, Jesus the Messiah, will return to destroy His enemies, save the remnant in Israel and restore the throne of David in Jerusalem.

Many people feared that the world would come to an end on December 21, 2012 because of Mayan calendar “prophecies.” Many New Agers believed that the 21st would be significant in seeing a global wide spiritual epiphany. In the midst of all this, there is the issue of the return of Jesus Christ. What do New Spirituality ” leaders have to say about the end-times and the return of Jesus Christ versus what does the Bible have to say? There is a vast difference in the two.

Many Christians have told me that the study of prophecy is irrelevant to the here and now.  I would counter, by quoting the famed comedian George Burns, “I look to the future, because that is where I’m going to spend the rest of my life”. While the days darken, and our world seemingly becomes more unhinged each day, we know according to Scripture, that God has a grand plan for us, and a future beyond compare.  I hope this helps you in your journey.

In many ways, the current conflict between Israel and the Muslim nations, is a continuation of a conflict which began 4000 years ago - two families competing for the blessing of Abraham.  Isaac was the "son of promise" and the "son of faith", while Hagar's son Ishmael was the "son of unbelief" and the "son of human effort".  This conflict between these two descendents of Abraham, Isaac and Ishmael, ultimately will be demonstrated in a building central to Judaism and important to Islam.  "This building, known the world over as the "Dome of the Rock", or in Jewish circles, the "Temple Mount", will become the center focus in the end-times.

So much of what is talked about in the book of the Revelation has it's roots in the Old Testament. And of the Old Testament prophets, there is one that stands out from among the rest. The prophet Daniel was given many direct visions and revelations by God through the angel Gabriel that pertain to the End Times. In fact, he was given so much information that Jesus Himself recommends that we study and understand what Daniel had to say.

Then the LORD said unto me, The prophets prophesy lies in my name: I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, neither spake unto them: they prophesy unto you a false vision and divination, and a thing of nought, and the deceit of their heart.

A very large part of Christendom in the United States is enamoured with those who claim to speak for God. If you think that’s an overstatement, simply tune into some of the programing on Trinity Broadcasting Network or some of the other cable religious networks. What you will see are churches filled with thousands of Christians hanging on to every word of a man or a woman who is declaring what God has just revealed to him or her.

by Randall Price

In the Bible Jerusalem occupies a strategic position with respect to two major prophetic periods: “the times of the Gentiles” and “the seventy weeks of Daniel. In the case of “the times of the Gentiles,” the city prophetically marks the beginning and ending of this period that stretches from the Babylonian destruction (587 B.C.) until the Second Advent of Christ.

by Matt Leasher

When one examines the geographical scope of Bible prophecy one can’t help but easily observe the divine prominence of the nation of Israel and rightfully so as God has undoubtedly chosen Israel to be the centerpiece for fulfilling His purpose for all of history.

A very clear prophetic scenario of the first and last generations of the present dispensation is described by Jesus in His Olivet Discourse. Both these generations are characterised by the coexistence of Israel and the Church. In the first generation, the Church was established and phased in, while Israel was on a course of being phased out by way of the Diaspora. In the last generation, Israel is restored and phased in while the Church must prepare itself to be phased out by way of the rapture.

According to the World Health Organization, natural disasters made 2010 the deadliest and most costly year in the past 40 years. Over 250,000 people died as a result of earthquakes, heat waves, floods, volcanoes, super typhoons, blizzards and landslides. The financial cost was in excess of $222 billion. Now scientists are trying to make the case that global warming and pollution are causing these disasters and the impact is twice as bad as terrorism, which has cost--according to the US State Department, only 115,000 lives in the past 40 years. See where this is headed--that it is more important to crack down on those contributing to large carbon footprints than it is to worry about Islamic terrorists.
