Signs That We Are Living In The Last Days.

World Events Today that Tells Us that We are in the Last Days of The End Of The Age.


1. The Fourth World Ruling Kingdom Empire.

From the perspective of Christian Biblical prophecy the first ever ‘world’ ruling kingdom empire was the Chaldean kingdom of Babylon under Nebuchadnezzar (Daniel 2:37 - 45).

In my discussion of Genesis in Bible 101 – The Holy Bible Expounded*1, I mentioned that the focus of the Christian Bible is primary on man (i.e. mankind made in the image and likeness of GOD). To be precise the focus is not on all mankind but only on man who still have a relationship with the ALMIGHTY CREATOR GOD of the Christian Bible, the GOD of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. This meaning that these people (whether group, tribe andor nation) who still has a valid (as opposed to a false, fake, fraudulent and therefore invalid) relationship with the CREATOR accepting HIM as GOD, their GOD and SOVEREIGN OWNER. That is on man (individually and collectively) who acknowledges, honor, obey and worship the GOD of the Christian Bible. And from the context of today ever since the end of the Antediluvian Age, all those who have a valid standing (as opposed to invalidated or terminated) Covenant with HIM to accept HIM as their GOD and SOVEREIGN OWNER. Whatever details the Bible recorded about the rest mankind are only in a general sense whenever these come into some relevant contact with or have some relevant effect on those who still have a relationship with GOD.

In terms of a world ruling nation or empire, for that nation to be considered from the context of the records of the Christian Holy Scriptures, that nation or empire must also rule or exercise political authority over  the Elect of GOD or the people that descended from the Biblical Patriarch Jacob during the times when their Covenant with GOD was still valid (i.e. have not ended or been terminated as per the terms of their Covenant). Because that is the focus of the Christian Bible that is why the Bible did not record the history of China or Japan or Russian or India or the other nations of the world.

One thing that may puzzle some is (as indeed some have used it as their basis to ridicule the GOD of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob as being elitist and exclusive and therefore must be false), if the GOD of the Christian Bible is the CREATOR of all things including all mankind, why is it that throughout the Biblical records, HIS dealings were only with a small group of people that descended from the Biblical patriarch Jacob. Why doesn't HE deal with the other nations of the world? Why were HIS Words given only to such a small minority of mankind? And why did the records of HIS Words and revelation ended with the time of the Apostolic fathers? This is of course no puzzle or mystery to those who understand the framework of HIS plan. Read more about this framework in the chapters ‘The Sabbath and The Ordained Feasts’ and ‘The Elect’ in ‘Bible 101 –  The Holy Bible Expounded*1’.

For a short concise discussion on why the GOD on the Christian Holy Scriptures have for thousands of years until today just (i.e. almost entirely) been focus on a very small population of mankind, please read in the post ‘The End Of The World How It Is Going To Happen’ the discussion of ‘Not Yet A Worldwide Conversion’.

It is very important for you, the reader to be able to understand this, as this is a key framework of the records of the Holy Christian Scriptures. For this very same reason this work, the writings and teachings of this author's blogs and all this author's books on the Christian religion (i.e. faith and worship) they are focused primary on:

2. The Elect of GOD also referred to as the Saints. After the Apostolic times, these mostly referred to all those in the Church or Assembly of GOD. However today after the Falling Away prophesied in 2 Thessalonians chapter 2 verse 3 and also in Revelation chapter 3 verse 16, it is no longer true, not until after the Day of the LORD. Those that were spewed or vomited out are no longer in the Church (John 15:2, 6) but are on the outside (Revelation 11:2, 12:17).
3. The genealogical descendants of the Biblical patriarch Jacob (aka Israel).
4. The Spirit Angelic realm, all the host of Heaven.
5. The religious systems advanced by the Adversary, Satan the Devil. These being the Churches of the Antichrist which is the great fraudulent counterfeit Christianity.
6. The Beast power with include all those who supports it and act for Satan the Devil (as his agents and disciples) to carry out his work and agenda.
7. Other personages, entities and systems that comes into contact with and have some bearing on anyall of the above.


In the book of Daniel, Nebuchadnezzar had a dream vision of an awesome giant statue. The vision was to let Nebuchadnezzar, as well as all who would believe GOD (then and now), be knowledgeable of a track of GOD's plan, and also that GOD rules over the nations of the earth. HE grants power and authority to whomsoever HE chooses. Read Daniel 2 verses 37 to 44 below:

You, O king, are a king of kings. For the God of heaven has given you a kingdom, power, strength, and glory; and wherever the children of men dwell, or the beasts of the field and the birds of the heaven, He has given them into your hand, and has made you ruler over them all—you are this head of gold. But after you shall arise another kingdom inferior to yours; then another, a third kingdom of bronze, which shall rule over all the earth. And the fourth kingdom shall be as strong as iron, inasmuch as iron breaks in pieces and shatters everything; and like iron that crushes, that kingdom will break in pieces and crush all the others. Whereas you saw the feet and toes, partly of potter’s clay and partly of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; yet the strength of the iron shall be in it, just as you saw the iron mixed with ceramic clay. And as the toes of the feet were partly of iron and partly of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly fragile. As you saw iron mixed with ceramic clay, they will mingle with the seed of men; but they will not adhere to one another, just as iron does not mix with clay. And in the days of these kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed; and the kingdom shall not be left to other people; it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever.


Here is another Biblical key to understand the Scripture of Truth. In Biblical terminology the king and his kingdom are synonymous and the term is used interchangeably. Also when a king or kingdom is mentioned it also applies to the dynasty.

There have been many views and ideas put forward about these four Beasts, many of these views ignoring what were clearly written in the Scriptures. The reason for these confusions is because these religious experts and theologians have inherited a religion which taught that the Christian Bible just cannot be believed, even as they called themselves Christian, believing that they are the followers of JESUS CHRIST when nothing can be further from the truth.

GOD revealed in that vision four ‘world’ ruling kingdoms, starting with Babylon under Nebuchadnezzar. Following on Babylon was the Mede Persian empire (Daniel 8:3, 20; 2:39) and then the Greco Macedonian empire (Daniel 8:5, 21; 2:39) after that. The fourth and last of these world (Daniel 2:40; 7:19 - 27, Revelation 17:12; Daniel 2:44) ruling kingdoms or empires was Imperial Rome, an awesome military machine in its founding days.

Unlike the first three, this fourth empire would have several revivals or ‘resurrections’:
 
The ten horns are ten kings Who shall arise from this kingdom.
Daniel 7:24 first part.

In the later chapters of the book of Daniel this vision was expanded upon and much later more revelations on the last of these fourth kingdoms were given to the Apostle John and recorded in the book of Revelation. This last empire was to have several resurrections or reemergence (Revelation 17:10 - 11), the last of which was to be a political and military union of several nations (Daniel 2:42 - 43; Revelation 17:12). This last instance will rise up in the world just prior to the time of JESUS CHRIST's second coming. (Daniel 2:44; Revelation 17:14). This last instance will be destroyed by the LORD JESUS in the climatic battle of Armageddon when HE returns to restore the Kingdom to Israel and from there rule over the whole world (Daniel 2:34, 44).

The first instance or fulfillment of this fourth ‘world’ ruling nation (or kingdom) was the Roman Empire. Into this empire came the SON of GOD, JESUS CHRIST born as a man to lived out and fulfilled HIS first role as the LAMB of GOD. This role was to ‘redeem’ mankind from the penalty of their sins (Psalm 14:3; Romans 3:10; 5:12) paying that penalty, the death penalty, on all their behalf.

The ancient Roman Empire worshiped their emperors as a deity just as Nebuchadnezzar required his subject to worship his golden image. Emperor worship was common in ancient times in many nation states.

Under the concept of Dualism (one of the keys to understanding GOD's plan for mankind and the Christian Bible), Daniel was raised up in the time of the first world ruling empire, Babylon. When JESUS first came, HE came to the first instance of the fourth world ruling empire as a SON of man. JESUS will come a second time to the last revival (resurrection) of this fourth world ruling empire to destroy all wickedness and to rule over all the nations from Jerusalem (Daniel 2:34 - 35, 44; Revelation 18:2, 21; Revelation 11:!5).
Please read in The Keys To Unlocking The Mystery Part IV of The Holy Bible Expounded to understand the meanings of many of the symbolism in the Christian Holy Scriptures.
Read about the various ‘resurrections’ or revivals of this fourth ‘world’ ruling kingdom as defined by the Christian Bible in the book of Daniel chapter 7 verses 23 to 25:

The fourth beast shall be A fourth kingdom on earth,
Which shall be different from all other kingdoms,
And shall devour the whole earth, Trample it and break it in pieces.
The ten horns are ten kings Who shall arise from this kingdom.
And another shall rise after them; He shall be different from the first ones,
And shall subdue three kings. He shall speak pompous words against the Most High,
Shall persecute the saints of the Most High, And shall intend to change times and law.
Then the saints shall be given into his hand For a time and times and half a time.

History repeats itself, and this soon coming last instance or resurrection of this same fourth kingdom of ancient Rome will required all and sundry to worship its ruler in the personage of the Beast. Not only are they going to be required to worship this ruler or leader but they will also be required to worship the image of this leader. Now you would think with all the knowledge mankind have gained in these days of great scientific advancement and especially with the current knowledge driven global economy, we would reject the imposition of emperor worship should any leader try to enforce it. We would like to believe that in our superior intelligence we will never accept anyone who tries to do that. Such is the power of the Word of GOD which tells us that not only will billions worship the image of the Beast and the Beast, but they will acquiescence to the murder of multiple millions others who will not.

Surely you know that in the mother church (Revelation 17:5) of the Babylonian Mystery religion, idol worship has been in practice for centuries since. At the end of this age, it is this very mother church led by a “miracle” performing head that will cause all and sundry to worship this Beast and the image of this Beast. For the followers and disciples of the mother church of the Christmas religion it would not be anything new or strange, they had been doing so for centuries before they lost their political power to do so.

The foundation for the rise of this last instance of the fourth beast power was already laid some years back with the formation of a union of nations in Europe. It is from out of this union that the last instance of this fourth beast will arise. This rise will be supported by powerful “miraculous” signs that will cause the whole world to marvel at this Beast and to follow this Beast power.

But the most definitive signs to this Beast power (in all of its instances, revivals or resurrections) is that this Beast power directlypersecute the Saints of the Most High’. Starting with the persecution of Christians (both the true and the fraudulent) by ancient Imperial Rome, through the centuries the Beast power in cohort with the support of the social order erected by the ‘Mystery Babylonian the Greatreligion (whenever they have been able to so with some measure of impunity) have been directly targeting the Saints of GOD, ‘the Saints of the Most High’, through their creed that specifically and explicitly outlawed the Everlasting Covenant of the Most High GOD.
