When you can start cross-referencing the evening news with the Bible, you probably ought to pay attention. Luke 21:9-12 says, “When you hear of wars and uprisings, do not be frightened. These things must happen first, but the end will not come right away. Then he (Jesus) said to them: ‘Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven.’”
President Joe Biden just left for Brussels so that he can join with a spontaneous NATO summit in Belgium. He will also visit Poland to discuss uniting many nations of the world to support Ukraine and continue their threat against Russia.
After the summit, Biden will join a European Council Summit to discuss common concerns regarding Russia and Ukraine. So the whole trip will involve meeting with NATO allies, G7 leaders, and European Union Leaders.
This trip to unify much of the world comes on the heels of Biden declaring that it is the time for a “new world order” that must be led by the United States. The president warned earlier in the week that the world is “at an inflection point,” and this only happens once every three or four generations. He said that since 1946, which was the end of World War II, there has been established a liberal world order which hadn’t happened in a long time.
The president warned that things are shifting again right now.
“We’re going to — there’s going to be a new world order out there, and we’ve got to lead it,” Biden said. “And we’ve got to unite the rest of the free world in doing it,” President Biden said.
One can only imagine how things will rapidly intensify if China aligns itself with Russia and offers economic and military aid. Biden has threatened Chinese President Xi with “consequences” should China “provide material support” to Russia in the midst of its war with Ukraine.
Right now, the Defense Department is on the verge of sending additional American troops to NATO’s eastern flank in Europe. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy made a statement before this summit in Europe saying that there were 100,000 people in Mariupol that were facing “inhuman conditions” with no food, water, or medicine. They were seeing constant shelling and constant bombing.
And a spokesperson for Russian President Vladimir Putin, Dmitri Peskov, just refused to say that Russia would not use a nuclear weapon.
Wars and rumors of wars…earthquakes, famines, and pestilences…nation rising against nation…a new world order…we are facing a future of Biblical proportions.
In the Book of Revelation, the beloved Apostle John sees a vision of a beast (also known as the antichrist) rising out of the sea with seven heads and ten horns (Rev. 13:1). Scholars have cross-referenced this passage with the Old Testament passage found in Daniel 7:16-24. It is a common understanding that these prophetic visions from Daniel and John point to a world system revolving around the antichrist.
The ten horns in Revelation compare with the ten-nation confederacy that is shown in Daniels’s vision of a statue. He envisions a final world government that consists of ten different people groups or nations. The beast or the antichrist, after using their unity, will destroy them.
The ultimate ruler of this one-world government will have power over all the world (Rev. 13:3,4) and have authority over “every tribe, people, language and nation” (Rev. 13:7).
How will the world give this kind of authority to one world leader? It seems that the disasters and plagues in the last days along with the judgment that comes from God (see chapters 6-11 in Revelation) will create such a massive crisis worldwide that people will cling to anything or anyone who might promise relief or hope.
Many people read these stories in the Bible and see them as allegorical or fiction…but the truth is, we are seeing them play out on the worldwide stage today. Does this have your attention?
