Things to Consider-A Wake-Up Call
The events alone of the past fifty years should speak volumes to anyone who knows anything about biblical prophecy. For those unfamiliar with bible prophecy, this will do more than just raise your eyebrows. Hopefully, this will serve as a wake-up call to believer and non-believer alike.
Within the past fifty years, we have seen numerous prophecies (God’s promises) fulfilled. To name a few…
The rise of the European Union - the world’s last great empire (Daniel 7:7, Revelation 13)
The creation of a European army (Daniel 11:38-39)
Rebirth of the nation of Israel after 1900 years, and back in their own land (Jeremiah 23:7-8, and many other places)
Restoration of Biblical Hebrew, as a living language (Zephaniah 3:9)
Personal identification chips - now used widely (Revelation 13:16-18)
Instantaneous worldwide communication (Revelation 11:9-10)
Explosion in knowledge in the last days - electronic knowledge doubling every six months (Daniel 12:4)
The development of weapons that can destroy an entire city in just one hour (Revelation 18:19)
Jerusalem - a source of worldwide contention (Zechariah 12:2-3)
A peace process in the middle east with many nations involved (Daniel 9:27), with the issue of land at its very heart (Daniel 11:39)
The Jewish Temple ready for rebuilding, and sacrifices resuming (Daniel 9:27)
A decline in the moral behaviour of society (2 Timothy 3:1-5)
Terrible catastrophes and natural devastation increasing (Luke 21:25-26)
Nobody can deny all these things have happened, or will soon happen. They are in the news almost every week.
Here’s more to digest:

1) The year 2007 should see the ratification of the European Constitution, fulfilling Scripture, creating the role of a EU President and Foreign Minister, or the “prince” of the people of Rome (Daniel 9:26).
2) The European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP), a seven year stability agreement with the EU and 16 Middle East nations, of which Israel was first to sign, lasts from 2007-2013. Javier Solana, the High Representative of the European Common, Foreign and Security Policy is responsible for this policy (the prince of the people?). This agreement is to be confirmed with all nations on January 1st, 2007 (Daniel 9:27). The ENP also has a mid-term review period, similar to the covenant mentioned in the book of Daniel.
3) Iran is expected to possess enough enriched Uranium to produce a nuclear weapon by around 2009-2010 (also here), if not by 2007, with knowledge on how to build a bomb already obtained on the black market. Russia and China are heavily involved in Iran’s nuclear programme. Diplomacy has failed catastrophically in regards to Iran, and President Ahmedinejad is actively seeking war with Israel and the West. Israel is expected to take matters into its own hands, possibly fulfilling the prophecy of a Russian/Muslim invasion of Israel within months if not years, as foretold in Ezekiel 38-39. Ezekiel stated this war would occur in the “latter days”, possibly just prior to the beginning of the tribulation period.
4) The EU is working towards implementing its 2010 Headline Goal, a military response group capable of being launched anywhere within the world in 5 to 10 days. If the years 2007-2013 turn out to be the tribulation period, the EU will have a force capable of fulfilling the Antichrist’s invasion of the Middle East after the covenant fails (Daniel 11:40-45).
5) The European Union hopes to have its Battle Groups concept, similar to the idea of the old Roman Legions, up and running by 2007. Thirteen Battle Groups are to be operational by 2010. Each Battle Group consists of around 1500 troops from one or more nations.
6) The EU is also working towards launching a new global communications system by 2010, called GMES, and will “provide authorities with necessary elements for a European Security and Defence Policy”. Europe is well on its way to becoming a world military power. Russia is also aiming to deploy its own network of satellites by the year 2010, called Glonass. This will consist of 24 satellites which will significantly boost the Russian Federation’s military capabilities.
7) Tony Blair says the world has just seven years, or until 2012, to fix the global warming problem before it will be too late. This corresponds with descriptions in the book of Revelation regarding the plagues that will cause men to blaspheme the name of God (Revelation 16:8-9). Some scientists feel we have already passed the point of no return.
8) The British government will implement a compulsory national identification card system by 2010. Many other nations are considering implementing a similar scheme. This mandatory national identification scheme will be a precursor to the introduction of the Mark of the Beast, possibly an implantable RFID tag.
9) Meteorologists are expecting the next solar cycle to be around 30-50% stronger than the last one, significantly disrupting weather patterns and knocking out communication satellites. This cycle is to peak in 2012.
Quote: “There is disagreement on exactly when the new cycle will begin — one key researcher predicted the cycle will start in late 2007 or early 2008, and another said it could begin either late this year or in early 2007. But they did agree that the most severe storms won’t begin popping on the solar surface for several years, but when they do, they’ll be huge. The solar storms in the past have knocked out huge power grids and screwed up global electronics and data communications, but “the next sunspot cycle will be 30 to 50 percent stronger than the last one,” the scientists said in Monday’s statement.
10) Israel is aiming at 2010 as the year to finalize its borders, even if it means doing it without the agreement of the Palestinian Authority. Prime Minister designate Olmert has insisted on holding on to East Jerusalem, which according to Scripture, will be recaptured by Gentiles by force (Zechariah 14:2). 2010 will put Israel seeking final status borders right in the middle of this seven year period.
11) There will be a lunar eclipse on the feast of Purim in March, 2007, over the entire Middle East. The Jews celebrate Purim as the day the Lord delivered them from their enemies and wicked Haman. The moon, which represents the Messiah in Jewish tradition, will be eclipsed over the entire Middle East on that exact date. I think its significant the lunar eclipse occurs during Purim, when the Jews all over the world will be celebrating the day God delivered them from their enemies. God veiling the moon in darkness (representing the Messiah) could be seen as a warning to Israel of the impending judgement the nation will face during the tribulation period before experiencing deliverance.
12) EU Action Plan agreed on improving animal welfare within the European Union, for the period 2006-2010. Could the renewal of this document be the one that causes the sacrifice and oblation to cease, halfway through the Antichrist’s reign? (Daniel 9:27)
13) The EU is aiming to implement numerous free trade agreements across the world by the year 2010, which will no doubt boost Europe’s political influence across the globe. Someone once said, control energy and you can influence governments, control food and you can influence the individual. The European Union started out as a simple European Coal and Steel Community pact, where European nations agreed to pool their energy resources. The North American Union, a regional government which Mexico, the US and Canada are setting up, is starting off as a simple trade and security pact. We have no reason to believe we can expect anything less from these free trade agreements.
14) Experts are predicting global oil supplies may peak around the year 2010. This won’t mean the oil supplies will run out, rather as the demand of oil - especially from booming economies like China - continues to outstrip supplies, the price of oil is expected to rocket.
Quote: “”Oil supply will peak in 2010-11 at around 92 to 94 million barrels a day,” he said. “We have just 1500 days to peak. Collectively, we are still in denial.”
15) The year 2007 falls 40 years after the recapture of Jerusalem, in the 1967 Six Day war. A biblical generation is believed to be from 40-70 years. Remember this:
Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled. Luke 21:32
This is just prophetic news relating directly to this particular time period, 2007-2013. We have already seen how RFID is stepping in to fulfil the role of the Mark of the Beast. Even if 2007 doesn’t turn out to be the start of the tribulation period, the world is well on its way to fulfilling end times prophecy as foretold in Scripture. Bible prophecy is no longer vague and something for the next generation to worry about, it’s happening here and now, and if you have not accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you will be left to face the tragic death and destruction that is foretold for the tribulation. Over one third of the world’s population will die during this seven year period (Revelation 9:15). Those that refuse to accept the Antichrist’s system will face the death sentence (Revelation 13:15). The future according to world opinion is bleak, perhaps non-existent. The only hope can be found in the Scriptures, in the God who knows the end from the beginning. The Bible tells us that now is the accepted time, now is the day of salvation.
And time is running out.
