Biblical prophecy is evidence itself. If you still deny this, it is clear that you have eyes but cannot see, you have ears but cannot hear.

1.
FALSE PROPHETS AND CHRISTS

Matthew 24:5
"For many will come
in my name, saying, I am Christ, and will mislead many."

Matthew 24:11
"And many false prophets will arise, and will mislead many."


In the last several
years many have claimed to be the Messiah. Jim Jones and
David Koresh are examples of these false christs as well as
countless others who are not as newsworthy. These false
prophets are a prelude to the ultimate false christ, the
antichrist. Many New Age groups, some even NGO's working for
the United Nations, are anxiously awaiting the antichrist,
preparing the way for his acceptance as the head of the hierarchy
of gods and the one who will usher in world peace.

2.
WARS

Matthew 24:6
"And you will be
hearing of wars and rumors of wars; see that you are not
frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet
the end."

Rumors of wars in all
areas of the world now occur frequently thanks to instant media
coverage and the availability of a multitude of 24-hour news
sources.

Matthew 24:7
"For nation will
rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various
places there will be famines and earthquakes."

More people have been
killed in warfare in this century than at any other time in
history. As the death toll rises in the Middle East, more and
more countries work feverishly to develop devastating weapons of
mass destruction. Add to that the expanding threat of
terrorism and unpredictable dictators such as Saddam Hussein, and
the potential for the outbreak of war exists in nations, kingdoms
and places across the globe.

3.
FAMINES

Matthew 24:7
"For nation will
rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various
places there will be famines and earthquakes."

As white, Christian
farmers are driven out of Zimbabwe in increasing numbers, and
foreigners move in to replace life-sustaining crops with poppies
that now supply 25% of the worlds drugs, famine spreads across the
African continent. The undernourished are not limited to
Africa, however. A large portion of the worlds 5 billion
people suffers from a shortage of food.

4.
EARTHQUAKES

Matthew 24:7
"For nation will
rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various
places there will be famines and earthquakes."

The number and
intensity of earthquakes this century is at a level higher than any
other time in history. A staggering number of seismic events
occur around the world daily. The earthquake seismic monitor
IRIS shows all major earthquakes for the last year.
Indicated by yellow and red circles, the seismic events of the last
15 days provides strong evidence of the fulfillment of Matthew 24:7
in our day. By contrast, in the years from 1890 to 1900 there
was only one major earthquake in the world.

5.
TRIBULATIONS

Matthew 24:8-9
"But all these things are merely the beginning of birth pangs.
Then they will deliver you to tribulation, and will kill you, and
you will be hated by all nations on account of my name."

Christians are under attack throughout the
world today. In the United States Christians still enjoy
freedom to worship God without suffering much more than ridicule,
hatred, or discrimination at work and school. However in many
other countries such as China, Sudan, Africa, Saudi Arabia, North Korea,
Russia, and many Muslim nations, Christian suffer much greater
persecution and often times death for their faith. During the
tribulation this suffering will be worldwide and will continue even
to the point of martyrdom. These first 5 signs will increase
in intensity and severity as the tribulation approaches, much like
the birth pangs or contractions of a pregnant woman worsen as the
delivery time approaches.

6. THE GOSPEL WILL BE
PREACHED THROUGHOUT THE WORLD

Matthew 24:14
"And this gospel of the kingdom shall be
preached in the whole world for a witness to all the nations, and
then the end shall come."

This prophecy has already been fulfilled
through television, radio, missionaries, the translation of the
Bible into many languages, and the internet. People all over
the world now hear the message of Christ from missionaries who have
the means to travel the globe, and via technology that allows us to
communicate with people on the other side of the world right from
our own homes, churches and offices.


TWO CHARACTERISTICS OF THE END OF THE AGE
FROM THE APOSTLE PAUL


1. GODLESSNESS IN THE LAST
DAYS

II Timothy 3:1-5,7
"But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will
come. For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money,
boastful, arrogant, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful,
unholy, unloving, unforgiving, malicious gossips, without
self-control, brutal, haters of good, treacherous, reckless,
conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of god; holding to
a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; always
learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth."

For anyone who has watched television, read a
newspaper, lost a retirement to corporate greed and corruption, or
just walked outside their front door, it is obvious this prophecy
has been fulfilled by our generation. Our leaders are often
corrupt; our cities are filled with crime, brutality, and neon
signs proclaiming our sinful, godless nature. The New Age
Movement brings in increasing numbers of mystics who claim to be
the enlightened ones. They are some of the most educated and
influential people in our societies, and yet the most lacking in
real truth.

2. APOSTASY (FALLING AWAY
FROM THE FAITH)

I Timothy 4:1-3
"But the spirit explicitly says that in later times some will
fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and
doctrines of demons. By means of the hypocrisy of liars
seared in their own conscience as with a branding iron, men who
forbid marriage and advocate abstaining from foods which God has
created to be gratefully shared in by those who believe and know
the truth."

Churches today are becoming more and more
ecumenical, embracing the New Age interfaith agenda, and denying
Christ as the only way to salvation. Giving in to the
politically correct media and a corrupt society, they have embrace
homosexuality as an acceptable alternate lifestyle and preach
tolerance and compromise in place of God's truth for the salvation
of the world. The environmentalist movement within the New
Age movement lures them into a worship of mother earth, belief in
past lives, reincarnation, and Karma while demonizing all those who
would eat the meat God gave us as nourishment for our bodies.


ELEVEN FULFILLMENTS OF BIBLE PROPHECY
REQUIRED FOR THE END OF THE AGE


1. EXISTENCE OF A
200,000,000 MAN ARMY IN THE EAST

Revelation 9:16
"And the number of the armies of
the horsemen was two hundred million; I heard the number
of them."

An army of that size had never
existed until China's army reached that number in the
1960's.

2. REDEVELOPMENT
OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE (EUROPEAN COMMUNITY)

Daniel 2:32-33
"The head of the statue was made of fine gold, its
breast and its arms of silver, its belly and its thighs
of bronze, its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and
partly of clay."

Daniel 2:40-43
"Then there will be a fourth
kingdom as strong as iron; inasmuch as iron crushes and
shatters all things, so like iron that breaks in pieces,
it will crush and break all these in pieces. And
in that you saw the feet and toes, partly of potter's
clay and partly of iron, it will be a divided kingdom;
but it will have the toughness of iron, and partly of
pottery, so some of the kingdom will be strong and part
of it will be brittle. And in that you saw the
iron mixed with clay, they will combine with one another
in the seed of men; but they will not adhere to one
another, even as iron does not combine with pottery."

The fourth kingdom of iron is the
Roman empire according to Daniel's interpretation of
King Nebuchadnezzar's dream. The two legs are the
division of the Roman empire into an eastern portion
called the Byzantine empire which ended in the 1400's
and a western portion based in Rome which ended in the
400's. The nations of Europe since the Roman
empire dissolved have never adhered or formed one empire
but continue as separate nations, however, the European
Union now has 15 Member States and is preparing for the
accession of 13 eastern and southern European countries.

3. RETURN OF THE
ONE PURE LANGUAGE, HEBREW, TO ISRAEL

Zephaniah 3:9
"For then I will return to the
people a pure language, that they may all call upon the
name of the Lord, to serve him with one consent."

Prior to the restoration of Israel
in 1948, Hebrew was a dead language. Now Hebrew is
spoken throughout Israel.

4. REBUILDING OF
THE TEMPLE, RESTORATION OF TEMPLE WORSHIP AND ANIMAL
SACRIFICES IN JERUSALEM

For several end time prophecies to
be fulfilled, the temple will have to be rebuilt.

Revelation 11:2
"Leave out the court which is
outside the temple and do not measure it, for it has
been given to the nations; and they will tread under
foot the oly city for forty-two months."

Daniel 9:27
"And he will make a firm covenant
with the many for one week, but in the middle of the
week he will put a stop to sacrifice and grain offering;
and on the wing of abominations will come one who makes
desolation, even until a complete destruction, one that
is decreed, is poured out on the one who makes
desolate."

Daniel 9:26
"Then after the sixty-two weeks
the Messiah will be cut off and have nothing, and the
people of the prince who is to come will destroy the
city and the sanctuary."

Some archeologists believe that
the temple mount is actually 340 feet south of the Dome
of the Rock site, putting the Dome of the Rock within
the Court of the Gentiles. This may be the court
outside the temple that is left out.

There are many groups already
working on preparations for the new temple. The
blueprints are already done, the temple garments have
been made, and there have already been attempts to lay
the cornerstone of the temple. The only thing
standing in the way of the construction of the new
temple is Islam's third holiest site, the Dome of the
Rock and government support for such an undertaking.
Some possible scenarios for the rebuilding of the temple
are as follows:

1. The persuasion and
performing of miracles by the Antichrist and False
Prophet convinces the Islamic world to approve the
rebuilding.

2. The United Nations will
negotiate the rebuilding of the temple following a war
with the armies from the North (Russia and Islamic
forces). This assumes that the war with the armies
from the North is not the battle of Armageddon as some
feel and that this attack occurs before the rapture or
tribulation period begins. The supernatural
destruction of the Russian army and Islamic forces will
cause an outpouring of Christian worship and zeal
amongst the Jewish people who will reconstruct the
temple.

3. It is determined that the
site of the first two temples is actually south of the
Dome of the Rock, and the court of the gentiles (Dome of
the Rock) will be left out of the 3rd temple.

A group in Israel called the

Temple Mount Faithful
have obtained most of the
clothing, instruments and other equipment required for
temple worship and are actively preparing for the laying
of the third temple's cornerstone.

5. APPEARANCE OF
THE RED HEIFER AFTER 2000 YEARS

Numbers 19:2-7
"This is the statute of the law which the Lord has
commanded, saying, "Speak to the sons of Israel that
they bring you an unblemished red heifer in which is no
defect and on which a yoke has never been placed.
"You shall give it to Eleazar the priest, and it shall
be brought outside the camp and be slaughtered in his
presence. Next Eleazar the priest shall take some
of its blood with his finger and sprinkle some of its
blood toward the front of the tent of meeting seven
times. "Then the heifer shall be burned in his
sight; its hide and its flesh and its blood, with its
refuse, shall be burned. "The priest shall then
wash his clothes and bathe his body in water, and
afterward come into the camp, but the priest shall be
unclean until evening."

A red heifer will be required
to be used in the
process of purification described in the book of
Numbers. In May 1997 the first Red Heifer was born
in 2000 years. Another red Heifer was born in
Israel in March of 2002.

6. INCREASE
IN KNOWLEDGE AND TRAVEL


Daniel 12:4
"But as for
you, Daniel, conceal these words and seal up the book
until the end of time; many will go back and forth, and
knowledge will increase."


Billy Graham was quoted as saying, "ninety percent of
all the engineers and scientists who have ever lived are
alive today." Air travel, space travel, DNA
research and human cloning are all examples of the rapid
increase in knowledge in our generation.

7. RETURN
OF THE ETHIOPIAN JEWS TO ISRAEL


Zephaniah 3:10-11
"From
beyond the rivers of Ethiopia My worshipers, My
dispersed ones, will bring My offerings. In that
day you will feel no shame because of all your deeds by
which you have rebelled against Me; For then I will
remove from your midst your proud, exulting ones, and
you will never again be haughty on My holy mountain."

In 1984, Operation Moses saw the
airlift of 15,000 Jews who had already fled to refugee
camps in Sudan to escape starvation. In 1991,
Operation Solomon flew 20,000 Jews to Israel from
Ethiopia itself. A further airlift began in June
of 1999, aimed at transporting the last 3,000 members of
the Quara Jewish community from northeastern Ethiopia
to Israel.


8. THE
RISE OF RUSSIA

Ezekiel
38:2,4,8

"Son of
man, set your face toward Gog of the land of Magog, the
prince of Rosh, Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against
him. I will turn you about and put hooks into your
jaws, and I will bring you out, and all your army,
horses and horsemen, all of them splendidly attired, a
great company with buckler and shield, all of them
wielding swords. After many days you will be
summoned; in the latter years you will come into the
land that is restored from the sword, whose inhabitants
have been gathered from many nations to the mountains of
Israel which had been a continual waste; but its people
were brought out from the nations, and they are living
securely, all of them."

In order
for some end time events to occur Russia will have to be
a strong nation with a strong military.


9.
RETURN OF RUSSIAN JEWS TO ISRAEL

Jeremiah
23:7-8

"Therefore
behold, the days are coming declares the Lord, when they
will no longer say, as the Lord lives, who brought up
the sons of Israel from the land of Egypt, but as the
Lord lives, who brought up and led back the descendants
of the household of Israel from the north land and from
all the countries where I have driven them. Then
they will live on their own soil."

In the
1970's and 1980's there was a mass exodus of Russian
Jews out of Communist Russia. In 1999 the
Associated Press reported a dramatic increase in the
number of Jewish immigrants from Russia, bringing the
largest number of Russian Jews to Israel since the early
1990's.


10.
TECHNOLOGY FOR THE MARK OF THE BEAST

Revelation
13:16-17

"And he
causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and
the poor, and the free men and the slaves to be given a
mark on their right hand or on their forehead, and he
provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell,
except the one who has the mark, either the name of the
beast or the number of his name."

On May 10, three members of a
family in Florida became the first people to receive the
biochip implant. Each device, made of silicon and
called a VeriChip, is a small radio transmitter about
the size of a piece of rice that is injected under a
person's skin. It transmits a unique personal ID number
whenever it is within a few feet of a special receiver
unit. VeriChip's maker describes it as "a miniaturized,
implantable, radio frequency identification device (RFID)
that can be used in a variety of security, emergency and
healthcare applications."

Is the biochip the mark of the
beast to be used by the antichrist? We can't
really know. What is significant is that people
are being softened to the idea of a mark or an implant
as a means of maintaining security, providing medical
information, and regulating a more interdependent world.
As attitudes change, fears subside, and people are
convinced of the need for such a mark, the true mark of
the beast will be easily introduced to the world by the
antichrist.

11. PLANS FOR
THE ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT

The United Nations, World Trade
Organization, International Criminal Court, UN
peacekeeping/police force, numerous UN NGO's, and other
agencies are preliminary steps to the formation of a one
world government. We now have the communications
technology, transportation, and the pro-globalization
media necessary to usher in the one world government
headed by the antichrist. The increasing terrorist
threat and the middle east conflict will only speed up
the formation of this governing body as fear and
promises of better security make more people willing to
give up their national sovereignty for global
governance.

12. INSTANT
COMMUNICATION AROUND THE WORLD

Revelation 11:3, 7-10
"And I will grant authority to my
two witnesses, and they will prophecy for twelve hundred
and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth. When they
have finished their testimony, the beast that comes up
out of the abyss will make war with them, and overcome
them and kill them. And their dead bodies will lie
in the street of the great city which mystically is
called Sodom and Egypt, where also their Lord was
crucified. Those from the peoples and tribes and
tongues and nations will look at their dead bodies for
three and a half days, and will not permit their dead
bodies to be laid in a tomb. And those who dwell
on the earth will rejoice over them and celebrate; and
they will send gifts to one another, because these two
prophets tormented those who dwell on the earth."

Television and the 24-hour news
networks make it possible for people around the world to
see the dead prophets and rejoice at their deaths.

Luke 21:28
"But when these things
begin to take place, straighten up and lift up your
heads, because your redemption is drawing near."

Luke 21:32
"Truly I say to you, this
generation will not pass away until all things take
place.


"From me

Wow, very good. I must point out though it is the antichrist and his followers who will be against the temple and the sacrifices. Its is the antichrist who will put a stop to what is holy and usher in the unholy. He who calls the sacrifices unholy is himself unholy and not of God.

"In summary, the main events of the last seven-years start with the Antichrist confirming a covenant with many. After 3 ½ years the Antichrist will stop the sacrifice and offering in the temple declaring that he is God. This proclamation by the Antichrist will likely create a huge rebellion among the Jews and the rest of the world. Some will accept him but many will not. Those that do not worship the Antichrist will be persecuted and slaughtered"

I see now. "Those that do not worship the Antichrist will be persecuted and slaughtered"

DO NOT WORSHIP HIM!! IT DOES NOT MATTER IF YOU GET KILLED!! JUST DON'T SUBMIT TO HIS EVIL.

But it also says:

But whoever sacrifices a bull is like one who kills a man, and whoever offers a lamb, like one who breaks a dog's neck; whoever makes a grain offering is like one who presents pig's blood, and whoever burns memorial incense, like one who worships an idol. They have chosen their own ways, and their souls delight in their abominations; so I also will choose harsh treatment for them and will bring upon them what they dread. For when I called, no one answered, when I spoke, no one listened. They did evil in my sight and chose what displeases me." Hear the word of Yahweh, you who tremble at his word: "Your brothers who hate you, and exclude you because of my name, have said, 'Let Yahweh be glorified, that we may see your joy!' Yet they will be put to shame. Hear that uproar from the city, hear that noise from the temple! It is the sound of Yahweh repaying his enemies all they deserve (Isaiah 66:3-6).

It seems God is not happy with these sacrifices, so do not get involved with them when the temple is rebuilt most likely because Christ has already come and fulfilled the need for temple worship.

A couple notes:
1. Not all people know about Christianity yet. There are remote places where people have little contact with the outside world. I suspect that millions in China do not know about Christianity either. So, "6. THE GOSPEL WILL BE PREACHED THROUGHOUT THE WORLD" may not be complete yet.

2. I would avoid making a science of the end times. Some people worry too much about what exactly will happen in the end times or when they will happen, which we cannot know, instead of working on their own faith and bringing the faith to others.

1.
If it were the way you said it, it would be KNOWN throughout the world rather than Preached. Right now, as we speak, people ministers are preaching the word of God around the world. Heck, this, what I am doing now is spreading the word.

2. Ok, I agree, similar to Jaig' comment it is not of utmost importance but in Matthew is says that with prophecy, the return of Christ will not be a like a thief in the night for us. And we can be ready, rather than unprepared. This does increase our faith too. It is not there to scare people, it is there to bring faith to those who are struggling in the end of time
