Twenty-One Signs of Doomsday — Part Three

Article#: 817

Proverbs 22:17-21:

17 Bow down thine ear, and hear the words of the wise, and apply thine heart unto my knowledge.

18 For it is a pleasant thing if thou keep them within thee; they shall withal be fitted in thy lips.

19 That thy trust may be in the LORD, I have made known to thee this day, even to thee.

20 Have not I written to thee excellent things in counsels and knowledge,

21 That I might make thee know the certainty of the words of truth; that thou mightest answer the words of truth to them that send unto thee?

NOW FOR TODAY’S SUBJECT.

GOD SAID, II Peter 3:10-13:

10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,

12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?

13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

MAN SAID: These foolish doomsday prophets make me laugh. There is no end to this world, and certainly no judgment day!

Now THE RECORD. This is part three in the doomsday series. If you have not read or listened to "Twenty-One Signs of Doomsday — Part One," or "Twenty-One Signs of Doomsday — Part Two," please click onto these subjects here, before you continue with this feature.

All things that pertain to our lives have a beginning and an end, with the end being a product of the curse of the law of sin and death which will include the destruction of the heavens and the earth. The Word of God gives clear warning signs of this impending doom that we might demonstrate Godly fear, repent of our sins, and escape the horrific coming judgment. Jesus said in Matthew 24:42-44:

42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.

44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.

Signs #14 and #15: I John 4:3:

And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

Revelation 13:4-8:

4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?

5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.

6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.

7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.

8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

Sign #14 is one-world government and Sign #15 is one evil, final world ruler who will be destroyed by the King of Glory. The antichrist mentioned in the above passages is also known as the son of perdition, which means the son of ruin or the son of hell. This wicked one will rule during the Great Tribulation soon to come. He is discussed in II Thessalonians 2:1-4:

1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,

2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.

This antichrist will exercise power over all nations of the earth. How will this antichrist gain control over all the earth with its dramatic and dangerous diversities? A vehicle to facilitate just such an organization was established in 1945, known as the United Nations which is headquartered in New York City. The president of the UN is in theory the president of the world. The UN is gaining credibility more and more. The world looks to the United Nations as a broker between global conflicts. It is continually developing global authority. The UN is just such an organization that the son of perdition will commandeer in the final days of wickedness. The world’s population has and is being conditioned mentally to accept the United Nations as a world arbitrator. One day soon, in the midst of global chaos, the antichrist could easily take his seat through just such an organization. He will rule masterfully and bring death and great persecution to those who walk righteously. Daniel 8:23-25:

23 And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.

24 And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practice, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people.

25 And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.

The world’s economies will prosper under his hand ("...and by peace shall destroy many:..."). Those who resist this antichrist and his "peace" will die. Those walking righteously before God will be a focus of his destruction. He will blame those who resist him in the name of the LORD as being the ones guilty of wars and global friction, and by "peace" will destroy many. The Word of God declares, I Thessalonians 5:2-3,

2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.

3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.

If our assessment of the budding of the fig tree is correct, then this antichrist is presently alive somewhere on this earth and is being groomed to rule by his father the Devil. We now have the World Bank, the world court, and a myriad of other world organizations.

The organization for one world government is in place and the people’s appetite for its authority and its leader is being perfected. It’s beginning to rain.

Sign #16: Sign of doomsday number 16 is one world religious system. Revelation 16:13- 16:

13And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.

14 For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.

15 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.

16 And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.

Revelation 19:20:

And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

Revelation 20:10:

And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

The dragon is the devil. The beast is the antichrist. The false prophet is the one world religious system.

The world’s religious systems are converging on a common spot of ultimate compromise. These organizations by the nature of the "all roads lead to Rome" mentality reject extremist positions as those positions which divide. They are accurate in their assessment. However, God’s position is the position of ultimate truth and truth, by definition, is an extremist position. God has zero tolerance for those who add or subtract from truth. In the ultimate compromise, individual doctrines of the scriptures are omitted from the equation in favor of "unity." Many have taken up this anti-doctrine position, but be advised that God is not one of them. A few verses follow that declare God’s position on doctrine, which simply means teaching. Romans 16:17-18:

17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.

18 For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.

I Timothy 4:16:

Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.

II Timothy 4:2-3:

2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.

3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;

II John 1:10:

If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:

Galations 1:6-9:

6 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:

7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.

8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.

9 As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

It is true that doctrines divide just as truth divides from lies and light divides from darkness.

There is a global ecumenical movement which is epitomized by the World Council of Churches. This group is busy gathering the world’s churches under the banner of one god regardless of doctrine. This organization claims to represent some 400 million Christians through the various denominations and churches who have joined it. There are many such ecumenical organizations. The New Age movement is another global religious organization prepared to accept any religious organization under their "big tent" policy.

Situations are lining up. Given the right kind of global tribulation, it would be easy to visualize the alignment of the world’s religious organizations under the banner of one god (lower case "g"-od) which would be headed up by the false prophet. It’s beginning to rain.

Sign #17: Revelation 13:15-18:

15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

When this passage was penned, there were no checking accounts, direct deposit transactions, electronic transfers, charge cards, debit cards, computerized banking, scanning systems, etc. In the above passage, the Word of God prophesies of a new system of commerce. This new system of commerce appears to be the perfect moneyless society where consumers no longer deal in hard cash. All financial transactions are conducted electronically under a consumer account number. This would be a marvelous idea if it wasn’t for those who would take control of it. Several trial runs of the moneyless society have been undertaken in segregated communities in America not for religious reasons but simply to measure their feasibility. Such an electronic banking system would greatly reduce the cost of banking, personal theft, bad checks, bad credit, and even bankruptcy. This would in turn reduce the cost of goods, improve the world’s standard of living, and enhance personal safety—a great idea. This system with today’s technology could easily be cardless and could also easily be accomplished without the carrying of personal identification cards by simply embedding a code or identification chip of some kind in the right hand or under the skin in the forehead of an individual. This identifying chip located in your person could also give the government the ability, with global positioning systems, to locate you anywhere on this globe. Criminals could run but couldn’t hide—a good idea.

The world’s societies will all be controlled economically by the antichrist. Unless you receive the number of the beast which is 666, you will not be able to buy or sell. Revelation 13:17:

And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

God’s Word speaks of "the number of his name." Hebrew and Greek letters have numeric value. Much speculation has swirled around individuals in the past due to their wickedness and the numeric value of their name. They may have been antichrists but they were not THE antichrist. The number of his name will be 666.

The antichrist will control the world through its economy. The mechanisms are now clearly in view and could take hold relatively quickly. It’s beginning to rain.

In review, the first 17 signs of doomsday are as follows:

1. Israel, the fig tree, is budding and the generation that sees it shall not pass till all is fulfilled.

2. The son of perdition, the return of Jesus for his church, and rebuilding of the temple.

3. The red heifer.

3. Cohen and Levi.

4. The world awaits someone.

5. Transgressors are come to the full.

6. Neighbor oppressing neighbor.

7. Evil becomes good and good becomes evil.

8. As it was in the days of Noah.

9. Men shall be lovers of their own selves.

10. A famine for the word of God.

11. Many shall run to and fro.

12. Knowledge shall be increased.

13. One world government.

14. The antichrist to rule the world.

15. One world religious system.

16. The mark of the beast.

GOD SAID, II Peter 3:10-13:

10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,

12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?

13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

MAN SAID: These foolish doomsday prophets make me laugh. There is no end to this world, and certainly no judgment day!

Now you have THE RECORD.
