2 Extremes • Don’t become too obsessed with Biblical prophecy. • Don’t be afraid of Biblical prophecy or allow it to put fear in you.
St. Malachy’s Prophecy (12th Century) • 112 Popes • Benedict XVI = 111th • Next Pope (?) = 112th (final) In the extreme persecution of the Holy Roman Church, there will sit Peter the Roman [112th], who will pasture his sheep in many tribulations, and when these things are finished, the city of seven hills [i.e. Rome] will be destroyed, and the terrible judge will judge his people. The End.
Rabbi Ben Judah Samuel (12th Century) • The Ottoman Turks will conquer Jerusalem and rule over it for 8 jubilees. • 1 Jubilee = 50 years thus 8 X 50 = 400 years • 1517 + 400 = 1917 (British defeated the Turks) • Afterwards Jerusalem will become a no-man’s land for one Jubliee. • 1917-1967 = 50 years (international law)
And, then in the ninth jubilee, it will once again come back into the possession of the Jewish nation—which would signify the beginning of the Messianic end time. • 1967 – Six Day War • 1967 + 50 = 2017 (?) • Ottoman Turks did not conquer Jerusalem until over 300 years after he lived.
3 Stages of the Roman Empire • United Stage - Legs of iron • 2 Division Stage – Legs split • Splits between East & West in AD 364 • 10 Toes – mixture of clay & iron (antichrist)
Scenariosfor the Lack of Unity • 5 Eastern (Arab) + 5 Western (European) • Major Islamic Groups don’t get along (Mahdi) • Shiite • Sunni • Sufi’s • Intifada + Arab Spring (10 nations) • Democracy (clay) & Intifada (iron) don’t mix NOW – Between 2nd & 3rd Stage
Daniel 12:4 – But you, Daniel, keep this prophecy a secret; seal up the book until the time of the end, when many will rush here and there, and knowledge will increase. • This word is for the end of time and will not make sense until then. • Description of the End Times • Global Travel • Rapid Increase of Knowledge
Daniel 11:41 – He [antichrist] will invade various lands and sweep through them like a flood. 41 He will enter the glorious land of Israel, and many nations will fall, but Moab, Edom, and the best part of Ammon will escape. • Moab, Edom & Ammon = Jordan
Revelation 12:14 – But she [Messianic believers] was given two wings like those of a great eagle so she could fly to the place prepared for her in the wilderness. There she would be cared for and protected from the dragon for a time, times, and half a time [3 ½ years].
Daniel 11:42 – He [antichrist] will conquer many countries, and even Egypt will not escape. 43 He will gain control over the gold, silver, and treasures of Egypt, and the Libyans and Ethiopians will be his servants.
Syria • Isaiah 13-21 are prophecies against Muslim nations. Isaiah 17:1 – This message came to me concerning Damascus: "Look, the city of Damascus will disappear! It will become a heap of ruins.”
Ezekiel 38:1-9– This is another message that came to me from the Lord: 2 "Son of man, turn and face Gog of the land of Magog, the prince who rules over the nations of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him. 3 Give him this message from the Sovereign Lord: Gog, I am your enemy! 4 I will turn you around and put hooks in your jaws to lead you out with your whole army—your horses and charioteers in full armor and a great horde armed with shields and swords.
5 Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya will join you, too, with all their weapons. 6 Gomer and all its armies will also join you, along with the armies of Beth-togarmah from the distant north, and many others. 7 "Get ready; be prepared! Keep all the armies around you mobilized, and take command of them.
8 A long time from now you will be called into action. In the distant future you will swoop down on the land of Israel, which will be enjoying peace after recovering from war and after its people have returned from many lands to the mountains of Israel. 9 You and all your allies—a vast and awesome army—will roll down on them like a storm and cover the land like a cloud.”
Modern Equivalent Nations (Ezek. 38-39 War) Gog = Tribal Chief (Putin?) Magog, Meshech & Tubal = Russia Persia = Iran Ethiopia = Sudan, Somalia & parts of Ethiopia Libya = Libya, Tunisia & Algeria Gomer = Turkey
