Bible prophecy clearly reveals that in the last days prior to the rapture of the church, four powerful kings will race onto the world stage with two objectives. They will try:
1. To conquer the world, and to reign as global dictators. These dictators will strip you of your freedoms. They will take your civil liberties, and you will become property and slaves of the state.
2. To conquer Israel and destroy the Jewish people. Their desire is to control the city of Jerusalem and prepare for the anointing of the false Messiah.
Israel is currently surrounded by nations that are screaming for their blood. Anti-Semitism is raging through Europe and the United States, often celebrated in liberal universities among young people. Jews are being targeted around the world for assassination, and other synagogues are being vandalized as worshippers are being killed.
The massive prophetic, geopolitical drama is unraveling across the front pages of the news feed each day. The Gog/Magog War Mentioned in Ezekiel 38:39 has begun!
This way is the beginning of a series of wars that will engulf the world in what many will call World War III. The Bible calls it Armageddon. You don’t need to be a geopolitical expert to know that our world is coming apart at the seams. We are racing toward the end of the world as we know it,
Revelation 13 describes the beast rising out of the sea.
In prophetic terms, “the sea” means the nations of the world. John is telling us that he is looking at the nations of the world. John is pulling back the curtain of time to reveal the pending apocalypse. This is something that was foretold over 2,000 years ago and is now coming true in our lifetime.
If you ever thought you would like to have lived in biblical times. Congratulations. We are living in biblical times.
The four kings mentioned in Revelation are, right now, taking center stage for the first time in world history.
The King of the North is Russia. Although the name Russia doesn’t appear in Scripture, the geographic location is given in the Bible to pinpoint accuracy.
Vladimir Putin is currently trying to rebuild the Russian Empire. With it, he thinks he can conquer the world. They have certainly started working on this with their far-reaching military encampments
The King of the South is Egypt and the Arab Islamic forces. Keep in mind that all directions given in the Bible are with regard to the city of Jerusalem. In God’s mind, Jerusalem is the epicenter of the universe. When Ezekiel speaks of Paris, Ethiopia, and Libya, he’s speaking of the Arab Islamic nations.
The King of the East is China. A military superpower that neither fears or respects the U.S. The Bible’s word for “East” simply means “sun rising.” This lets us know that it is describing China. The King as described in Revelation, will lead a massive march of an army numbering over 200 million soldiers.
The King of the East is distinguished by his number, color, and flag. The three frogs or three demonic spirits that seduce him will get them to come to the Battle of Armageddon. Armageddon is the mother of all￼ wars.
It will be fought on the sacred soil of Israel for global supremacy between the King of the West and the King of the East. The pending prize is the throne of the earth, to rule and reign.
The King of the West is America and the United Kingdom. This king will be led by the Antichrist, who will force every person to receive his mark on their right hand or forehead. Those who do not comply will be killed.
The target of the king of the West is Israel. He will set up his image and proclaim he is god in the city of Jerusalem. The Antichrist will demand that the world worship him. His false prophet will reign fire down from heaven to consume the sacrifice laid upon the alter, emulating the Prophet Elijah on Mt. Carmel.
These kings who are currently jockeying for position throughout the globe will come face to face with the King of Kings and Lord of Lords in all of His glory. Our God is the Creator of the Universe and promised to rule and reign for all eternity! He has all power in heaven and on earth. He holds the seven seas in the palm of His hand and He called the stars by name. Who is greater than Our God? Absolutely no one!
As a believer in Jesus, all you need to know is Our Savior will not be defeated by any Army or any King.
While this is a very real picture of the future of the world, as described in the Bible throughout Scripture, those of us who have accepted Jesus as our Lord and Savior are going to be saved. We live with the confidence that God’s Kingdom will have no end.
For those who do not believe, watch and see what is going to be the end of the world as you know it.
We Are Living In￼ Biblical Times
