Where is the northern confederation?:

Where is the northern confederation? Most commentators state that the focus of antichrist and Armageddon is on Europe, especially Russia But many say that Gog & Magog & cities are in Asia Minor, not Russia Suggestion – Battle of Gog/Magog in Ezekiel & Armageddon in Revelation = same battle 7/27/2016 Les 1 Santa Jejej 43

Why one battle, not two?:

Why one battle, not two? Ezekiel 38-39 states that God & Jesus will be IN Israel (not preceding the return of Christ) Both have earthquake: Ezekiel 38:19; Revelation 16:19-20 Both have feast for birds of prey: Rev. 19:17; Ezekiel 39:17 Both invade from the north 7/27/2016 Les 1 Santa Jejej 44

Rome or Islam:

Rome or Islam Only Islam, not Rome, conquered the previous 3 empires – Babylon, Persia and Greece – Actually the CULTURE of Greece conquered Rome culturally even as Rome conquered Greece militarily Rome did not dominate east of the Euphrates River; defeated by the Parthians 7/27/2016 Les 1 Santa Jejej 45

Rome or Islam:

Rome or Islam We see Islam replacing Europe with its population. Europe’s birth rate so low that it halfs Europeans every 35 years; Muslims have very high population, and many Muslim men marry Christian women and make Muslim children Europe is weak morally and militarily 7/27/2016 Les 1 Santa Jejej 46

What is the day of the Lord?:

What is the day of the Lord? Author Gus Gurganus believes it is the time God destroys Israel’s enemies at the end time – tribulation Starts with a number of prophecies against Seir, Edom, Moab, Egypt and Lebanon for their hatred of Israel – the Lord will take vengeance 7/27/2016 Les 1 Santa Jejej 47

The day of the Lord:

The day of the Lord Gurganus believes Joel 2 is really talking about raptured saints in glorified bodies returning with Christ to fight. He believes the sword in Christ’s mouth represents his command to the saints to fight – not supernatural destruction Judgment of nations = how nations have dealt with Israel 7/27/2016 48

Which is the city? Mecca vs. Rome:

Which is the city? Mecca vs. Rome Location – desert of the sea = Arabia Multiple people come there (think Hajj) Huge foreign work population – but not offered citizenship Many nations drunk on wine (symbol of oil?) Does not really fit with Catholic church and communion 7/27/2016 49

Which is the city? Mecca vs. Rome:

Which is the city? Mecca vs. Rome Harlot will be destroyed! At least two Muslim traditions predict destruction of Mecca & Medina in the last days. Bible warns to flee to their own lands – ?for the foreign work force? Businessmen sad that Mecca cannot buy many things they want to sell any more 7/27/2016 Les 1 Santa Jejej 50

Who is the beast? Both the kingdom and antiChrist:

Who is the beast? Both the kingdom and antiChrist The fourth kingdom is Islam, who encompassed the first three kingdoms Roman empire did not destroy other nations; transformed them with government, etc. Muslim culture destroys other cultures completely when successful – Shari’a law, jihad, etc. 7/27/2016 51

Who is the beast? Both the kingdom and antiChrist:

Who is the beast? Both the kingdom and antiChrist The beast (antichrist) contends with the two witnesses and kills them – Rev. 11 Another beast = false prophet Forces worship Mark – can’t buy or sell without it – 666 Kills others but Bible calls the martyrs victorious 7/27/2016 Les 1 Santa Jejej 52

Beast & Harlot – relationship and end according to Bible:

Beast & Harlot – relationship and end according to Bible Beast first works with the harlot, then turns on her (Antichrist destroying Mecca?) Fights against Jesus Christ (true messiah) and is destroyed. Beast (antichrist) and false prophet thrown alive into the lake of fire. 7/27/2016 Les 1 Santa Jejej 53

Tentative conclusions:

Tentative conclusions Much evidence suggests that the antichrist = Madhi, and that Isa may in fact resemble the false prophet rather than Jesus. In many ways, Dajjal represents the real Jesus, our messiah, though some variation is there 7/27/2016 Les 1 Santa Jejej 54

Tentative conclusions:

Tentative conclusions Opposition in the last days may not come from Europe. Islam seems more likely, with direct confrontation looming in the near future 7/27/2016 55

Tentative conclusions:

Tentative conclusions As we look to the future, we see changes compatible with the Biblical prediction of the last days We should be encouraged to serve the Lord with more fervor, and to witness to many for salvation 7/27/2016 56
