  4. “2nd Coming Prophecy” • Not Scary.* • God’s Word Verified In the last days, mockers are going to have a heyday! Reducing everything to the level of their puny feelings, they'll mock, "So what's happened to the promise of his Coming? Everything's going on just as it has from the first day of creation.

  8. WhenGod’s Kingdom Conquers • Global Holocaust “There will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and on the earth dismay among nations, in perplexity at the roaring of the sea and the waves, men fainting from fear and the expectation of the things which are coming upon the world; for the powers of the heavens will be shaken.” Luke 21:25-26 “For then there will be a great tribulation, such as has not occurred since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever will. Unless those days were cut short, no life would be saved; but for the sake of the elect those days will be cut short.” Matthew 24:21-22

  9. WhenGod’s Kingdom Conquers • Global Holocaust • Jerusalem at the Center Israel will fall by the edge of the sword, and will be led captive into all the nations; and Jerusalem will be trampled under foot by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled. Luke 21:24

Ezekiel 39:14-15

  12. WhenGod’s Kingdom Conquers I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem to battle… Now this will be the plague with which the LORD will strike all the peoples who have gone to war against Jerusalem; their flesh will rot while they stand on their feet, and their eyes will rot in their sockets, and their tongue will rot in their mouth.

You will eat the flesh of mighty men and drink the blood of the princes of the earth, as though they were rams, lambs, goats and bulls…’” And the four angels, who had been prepared for the hour and day and month and year, were released, so that they would kill a third of mankind. The number of the armies of the horsemen was two hundred million; I heard the number of them. Revelation 9:15-16

  19. WhenGod’s Kingdom Conquers • Global Holocaust • Peaceful Globalization • Population Pressures

  20. WhenGod’s Kingdom Conquers • Global Holocaust • Peaceful Globalization • Population Pressures • Economic Pressures It’s not clear that anyone, even national governments, could slow globalization if they wanted to. Of the world’s 100 largest economic entities, more than half are no longer countries but companies. Global Embrace, Henry Wendt “In its fiscal year ending 2005, Wal-Mart’s revenues were $285.2 billion, larger than the combined GDP of sub-Saharan Africa.”

  21. WhenGod’s Kingdom Conquers Globalization means that events in one part of the world have ripple effects elsewhere, as ideas and knowledge, goods and services, and capital and people move more easily across borders. …As the countries of the world become more closely integrated, they become more interdependent. Greater interdependence gives rise to a greater need for collective action to solve common problems. Making Globalization Work, Joseph Stiglitz (Nobel Prize winning economist, former chief economist of the World Bank, professor at Columbia) • Global Holocaust • Peaceful Globalization • Population Pressures • Economic Pressures “Old safety mechanisms, designed to maintain financial stability in a world of relatively closed national economies, are as obsolete as the rust-belt world they were designed to protect.” Alvin Toffler, Power Shift: Knowledge, Wealth, and Violence At the Edge of the 21st Century

  22. WhenGod’s Kingdom Conquers • Global Holocaust • Peaceful Globalization • Population Pressures • Economic Pressures • Global Technology He required everyone—small and great, rich and poor, free and slave—to be given a mark on the right hand or on the forehead. And no one could buy or sell anything without that mark, which was either the name of the beast or the number representing his name. Revelation 13:16-17

  23. WhenGod’s Kingdom Conquers • Global Holocaust • Peaceful Globalization • Political Entities Where’s America?

  24. WhenGod’s Kingdom Conquers • Global Holocaust • Peaceful Globalization • Population Pressures • Economic Pressures • Global Technology • Political Entities Then He told them a parable: “Behold the fig tree and all the trees; as soon as they put forth leaves, you see it and know for yourselves that summer is now near. So you also, when you see these things happening, recognize that the kingdom of God is near.” Luke 21:29-31 "And just as it happened in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man: they were eating, they were drinking, they were marrying, they were being given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. Luke 17:26-27

  25. Two Kinds of “Believers” Philadelphia Laodicea “I know all the things you do, and I have opened a door for you that no one can close. You have little strength, yet you obeyed my word and did not deny me.” Revelation 3:8 “I know all the things you do, that you are neither hot nor cold. I wish that you were one or the other! But since you are like lukewarm water, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth! You say, ‘I am rich. I have everything I want. I don’t need a thing!’ And you don’t realize that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked. Revelation 3:15-17 "Be on guard, so that your hearts will not be weighted down with dissipation and drunkenness and the worries of life, and that day will not come on you suddenly like a trap; Luke 21:34 "This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come. Matthew 24:14 “Look! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends. Revelation 3:20

  26. The “Olivette Discourse” • Overlooking Jerusalem • God’s Beachhead • His Kingdom launched One day the Pharisees asked Jesus, “When will the Kingdom of God come?” Jesus replied, “The Kingdom of God can’t be detected by visible signs. You won’t be able to say, ‘Here it is!’ or ‘It’s over there!’ For the Kingdom of God is already among you.” Luke 17:20-21

  27. The “Olivette Discourse” • Overlooking Jerusalem • God’s Beachhead • His Kingdom launched • His Kingdom established In the same way, when you see all these things taking place, you can know that the Kingdom of God is near. Luke 21:31

  28. The “Olivette Discourse” • Overlooking Jerusalem • God’s Beachhead • His Kingdom launched • His Kingdom established • (i.e., the end of human kingdoms)
