The Jerusalem Post: “The world is facing another global conflict and a fast response is needed to deal with the threat, Jordan’s King Abdullah said on Tuesday.
“We are facing a Third World War against humanity and this is what brings us all altogether,” he told a news conference in Kosovo’s capital Pristina.
“This is a war, as I said, repeatedly within Islam and unfortunately over 100,000 Muslims have been murdered by Daesh (Islamic State) alone over the past two years, and that doesn’t also count for the atrocities like-minded groups have also done in Africa and Asia,” he said after meeting Kosovo President Atifete Jahjaga.”
Opinion: It’s in there. A world war is on the minds of so many, yet few will even look to see what is clearly forecast in God’s word who gave us the end from the beginning, Isaiah 46:10.
In our revised study, Bible prophecy 101, we compiled the events of unfulfilled prophecy into a possible order. With the wars of Psalm 83 and Ezekiel 38 having been completed, and the Church raptured, a sequence of events might happen like this:
The Tribulation Begins: (Jeremiah 30:7; Rev. 6:1-3)
Revival of the Roman Empire, 10 nation confederacy formed. (Dan. 7: 24; Rev. 13:1, 17:3)
Rise of Antichrist, (11th king Dan. 7:8, 24; Rev. 13:1-8)
Forty-two months (3.5 years) into the tribulation the peace treaty with Israel is broken. Antichrist enters the Holy of Holies and declares himself to be God, Abomination of Desolation, beginning the Great Tribulation (Dan 7:23; 2 Thes. 2:4; Matt. 24:21)
Antichrist sets up government of revived Roman Empire, world economic system, and world religion (Dan. 7:24; Rev. 13:5-8, 15-17, 17:16-17).
Left behind Christians and Jews who refuse the mark of the beast are martyred, no one may buy or sell without the mark (Rev. 7:9-17, 13:15-16)
Catastrophic divine judgments represented by 7 trumpets (Rev. 8:1-13) and 7 bowls (Rev. 16:1-21) poured out on the earth.
Jews recognize Jesus as Messiah (Zechariah 12:10; Acts 9:18)
Babylon is destroyed: Former headquarters of Antichrist prior to moving his headquarters to Israel during the battle of Armageddon (Rev. 18).
Battle of Armageddon begins – Four Power Blocs:
- King of the North: re-formed Russia, Iran, Turkey (Ezek. 38:1-6)
- King of the South: Egypt, North Africa, (Dan. 11:36-39, 11:40)
- Western Alliance, Beast Army of Antichrist – revived Roman Empire (Psalm 2:1-4; Rev.16:14, 19:19)
- Kings of the East – China, South East Asia (Rev. 16:12)
Battle concludes with Christ and His armies at the hill of Megiddo (Isaiah 63:1-3; Dan. 11:40-45; Rev. 9:13-21, 16:12-16).
