  • When will it happen?
  • 00:00:05.020 --> 00:00:06.190
  • What nations will be involved?
  • 00:00:06.190 --> 00:00:09.050
  • What's the odds of it happening in our lifetime?
  • 00:00:09.050 --> 00:00:13.030
  • - On today's show, we'll cover all these questions
  • 00:00:13.030 --> 00:00:16.010
  • and hopefully bring some clarity and hope to a topic
  • 00:00:16.010 --> 00:00:20.030
  • that is often times misunderstood and surrounded in fear.
  • 00:00:20.030 --> 00:00:24.100
  • - Stay tuned.
  • 00:00:24.100 --> 00:00:25.200
  • You won't want to miss this.
  • 00:00:25.200 --> 00:00:28.200
  • (dramatic music)
  • 00:00:28.200 --> 00:00:31.130
  • - The Bible prophesies that there will be a third world war.
  • 00:01:00.060 --> 00:01:04.270
  • In Matthew 24:3 it says,
  • 00:01:04.270 --> 00:01:07.190
  • "And as He sat upon the Mount of Olives,
  • 00:01:07.190 --> 00:01:09.270
  • "the disciples came unto Him privately saying,
  • 00:01:09.270 --> 00:01:12.050
  • "'Tell us, when shall these things be?
  • 00:01:12.050 --> 00:01:14.200
  • "'And what shall be the sign of the coming,
  • 00:01:14.200 --> 00:01:17.040
  • "'and of the end of the age?'"
  • 00:01:17.040 --> 00:01:19.210
  • The disciples asked this question of Jesus.
  • 00:01:19.210 --> 00:01:22.290
  • He answers them throughout the rest of the chapter.
  • 00:01:22.290 --> 00:01:26.150
  • Jesus said there would be wars and rumor of wars
  • 00:01:26.150 --> 00:01:30.070
  • and the most horrific war that will occur
  • 00:01:30.070 --> 00:01:33.180
  • in the end time is described in Revelation 9:15.
  • 00:01:33.180 --> 00:01:38.180
  • And this is the New Living Translation
  • 00:01:39.230 --> 00:01:41.090
  • and it says, "Then the four angels who had been prepared
  • 00:01:41.090 --> 00:01:44.070
  • "for this this hour and day and month
  • 00:01:44.070 --> 00:01:46.250
  • "and year were turned loose to kill one-third
  • 00:01:46.250 --> 00:01:50.200
  • "of all of the people on the earth."
  • 00:01:50.200 --> 00:01:53.080
  • It is shocking to read that this many people will die
  • 00:01:53.080 --> 00:01:57.120
  • but the Bible says it's going to happen.
  • 00:01:57.120 --> 00:01:59.280
  • The King James Version of this passage says,
  • 00:01:59.280 --> 00:02:02.290
  • "To slay the third part of men."
  • 00:02:02.290 --> 00:02:05.130
  • The New King James Version says,
  • 00:02:05.130 --> 00:02:07.160
  • "To kill a third of mankind."
  • 00:02:07.160 --> 00:02:10.120
  • The Good News Translation says,
  • 00:02:10.120 --> 00:02:12.170
  • "To kill a third of the human race."
  • 00:02:12.170 --> 00:02:15.270
  • After checking 15 or 20 different translations,
  • 00:02:15.270 --> 00:02:19.240
  • we can correctly conclude that this is exactly
  • 00:02:19.240 --> 00:02:23.080
  • what this passage says one third of humanity will die.
  • 00:02:23.080 --> 00:02:28.080
  • Consider how many died due to past wars.
  • 00:02:29.120 --> 00:02:32.130
  • Prior to the 20th century, there had never been a war
  • 00:02:32.130 --> 00:02:35.280
  • with as many as one million casualties.
  • 00:02:35.280 --> 00:02:38.220
  • But then came World War I which lasted from 1914 to 1918.
  • 00:02:38.220 --> 00:02:43.220
  • 8.2 million people died.
  • 00:02:46.090 --> 00:02:49.100
  • It was called the Great War.
  • 00:02:49.100 --> 00:02:51.120
  • The world's leaders said this can never happen again.
  • 00:02:51.120 --> 00:02:55.040
  • To keep it from happening again,
  • 00:02:55.040 --> 00:02:57.090
  • the League of Nations was formed.
  • 00:02:57.090 --> 00:02:59.120
  • However, it failed miserably.
  • 00:02:59.120 --> 00:03:02.040
  • 20 years later, World War II began.
  • 00:03:02.040 --> 00:03:06.060
  • But the end of this war, 52 million had died.
  • 00:03:06.060 --> 00:03:10.180
  • A second attempt was made to create a global
  • 00:03:10.180 --> 00:03:13.190
  • organization to prevent war.
  • 00:03:13.190 --> 00:03:16.100
  • The United Nations was formed in 1945.
  • 00:03:16.100 --> 00:03:19.260
  • However, according to Revelation 9:15,
  • 00:03:19.260 --> 00:03:23.210
  • the problem has not been fixed.
  • 00:03:23.210 --> 00:03:26.160
  • There will be another great war
  • 00:03:26.160 --> 00:03:29.140
  • and the Bible prophesies one third of humanity,
  • 00:03:29.140 --> 00:03:33.090
  • 2.5 billion will die.
  • 00:03:33.090 --> 00:03:37.100
  • This is about 40 times World War II.
  • 00:03:37.100 --> 00:03:41.100
  • And though we don't know exactly when it will happen,
  • 00:03:41.100 --> 00:03:44.170
  • it appears to be just ahead on the prophetic timeline.
  • 00:03:44.170 --> 00:03:49.120
  • This will be the worst war that has ever happened.
  • 00:03:49.120 --> 00:03:53.120
  • In the first 6.000 years of recorded human history,
  • 00:03:53.120 --> 00:03:57.090
  • no war had ever ended with even one million casualties.
  • 00:03:57.090 --> 00:04:02.040
  • Yet, within a single century, two world wars resulted
  • 00:04:02.040 --> 00:04:06.170
  • in 8.2 million dead and 52 million dead.
  • 00:04:06.170 --> 00:04:11.030
  • The third world war that is coming very soon will end
  • 00:04:11.030 --> 00:04:15.120
  • with 2.5 billion dead.
  • 00:04:15.120 --> 00:04:18.070
  • Now, Irvin, this prophesied war
  • 00:04:18.070 --> 00:04:20.270
  • seems almost incomprehensible.
  • 00:04:20.270 --> 00:04:23.180
  • - Dave, it's very interesting that we are in a time
  • 00:04:23.180 --> 00:04:27.170
  • when man is more educated than he's ever been.
  • 00:04:27.170 --> 00:04:32.040
  • They say our knowledge base is doubling every two years.
  • 00:04:32.040 --> 00:04:36.210
  • Yet, it seems as if the only thing
  • 00:04:36.210 --> 00:04:38.290
  • we are getting smarter at is killing people.
  • 00:04:38.290 --> 00:04:43.000
  • Divorce rates are up, suicide rates are up,
  • 00:04:43.000 --> 00:04:47.040
  • jails are fuller than they've ever been.
  • 00:04:47.040 --> 00:04:50.120
  • We are in a very serious time in our human history.
  • 00:04:50.120 --> 00:04:54.290
  • The Bible tells us where World War III will begin.
  • 00:04:54.290 --> 00:04:59.080
  • It is found in the sixth trumpet prophecy
  • 00:04:59.080 --> 00:05:01.220
  • of Revelation 9:13-15.
  • 00:05:01.220 --> 00:05:05.050
  • It says, "And sixth angel sounded,
  • 00:05:05.050 --> 00:05:08.050
  • "and I heard a voice from the four horns
  • 00:05:08.050 --> 00:05:10.120
  • "of the golden altar which is before God,
  • 00:05:10.120 --> 00:05:13.090
  • "saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet,
  • 00:05:13.090 --> 00:05:16.120
  • "loose the four angels which are bound
  • 00:05:16.120 --> 00:05:19.110
  • "in the great river Euphrates.
  • 00:05:19.110 --> 00:05:21.210
  • "And the four angels were loosed,
  • 00:05:21.210 --> 00:05:23.180
  • "which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month,
  • 00:05:23.180 --> 00:05:26.170
  • "and a year, for to slay the third part of men."
  • 00:05:26.170 --> 00:05:30.140
  • The prophecy says this war will begin
  • 00:05:30.140 --> 00:05:33.110
  • from the area of the Euphrates River.
  • 00:05:33.110 --> 00:05:36.180
  • Dave, show us exactly where the Euphrates River is located.
  • 00:05:36.180 --> 00:05:41.180
  • - The Euphrates River starts in Turkey
  • 00:05:42.210 --> 00:05:44.280
  • and flows down through Syria, then it passes
  • 00:05:44.280 --> 00:05:48.070
  • through the northern boundary of Iraq,
  • 00:05:48.070 --> 00:05:50.090
  • flowing all the way down to the souther border.
  • 00:05:50.090 --> 00:05:53.150
  • The river becomes the border between Iraq and Iran
  • 00:05:53.150 --> 00:05:56.190
  • for about 60 miles before finally emptying
  • 00:05:56.190 --> 00:06:00.040
  • into the Persian Gulf.
  • 00:06:00.040 --> 00:06:01.230
  • War has been raging up and down the Euphrates River
  • 00:06:01.230 --> 00:06:05.190
  • since America invaded Iraq in 2003.
  • 00:06:05.190 --> 00:06:09.210
  • When ISIS appeared on the scene in 2014,
  • 00:06:09.210 --> 00:06:13.220
  • it quickly took control of much of northern Iraq
  • 00:06:13.220 --> 00:06:17.180
  • and proceeded to capture almost 70% of Syria.
  • 00:06:17.180 --> 00:06:22.180
  • ISIS focused most of its efforts up and down the Euphrates.
  • 00:06:23.290 --> 00:06:27.030
  • This resulted in many battles being waged
  • 00:06:27.030 --> 00:06:30.080
  • along the Euphrates River.
  • 00:06:30.080 --> 00:06:32.140
  • As the battle escalated against ISIS,
  • 00:06:32.140 --> 00:06:36.030
  • both Russia and the United States moved troops into Syria.
  • 00:06:36.030 --> 00:06:41.010
  • And because of the danger of Russia
  • 00:06:41.010 --> 00:06:43.120
  • and America being inadvertently pulled
  • 00:06:43.120 --> 00:06:45.270
  • into conflict into Syria, Russia's Vladimir Putin
  • 00:06:45.270 --> 00:06:49.280
  • and then American President Obama,
  • 00:06:49.280 --> 00:06:53.190
  • made a secret agreement in December of 2015
  • 00:06:53.190 --> 00:06:57.050
  • that Russia would fight ISIS
  • 00:06:57.050 --> 00:06:59.090
  • on the west side of the Euphrates
  • 00:06:59.090 --> 00:07:01.210
  • while America would fight ISIS on the east side.
  • 00:07:01.210 --> 00:07:05.050
  • The agreement is still largely adhered to
  • 00:07:05.050 --> 00:07:08.020
  • until this present time even though
  • 00:07:08.020 --> 00:07:10.140
  • there have been a few violations here and there.
  • 00:07:10.140 --> 00:07:13.140
  • These developments have left the world's
  • 00:07:13.140 --> 00:07:15.290
  • two nuclear superpowers which control 90%
  • 00:07:15.290 --> 00:07:20.120
  • of the world's nuclear weapons camped
  • 00:07:20.120 --> 00:07:23.070
  • on either side of the Euphrates.
  • 00:07:23.070 --> 00:07:25.190
  • And it is this area where the Bible says
  • 00:07:25.190 --> 00:07:28.160
  • World War III will begin.
  • 00:07:28.160 --> 00:07:31.180
  • If it has not already begun, it appears we could be
  • 00:07:31.180 --> 00:07:34.250
  • on the brink of this great war.
  • 00:07:34.250 --> 00:07:37.130
  • - Because 2.5 billion people are prophesied
  • 00:07:37.130 --> 00:07:42.110
  • to die due to this war,
  • 00:07:42.110 --> 00:07:45.020
  • it is doubtful the war will be confined to the Middle East.
  • 00:07:45.020 --> 00:07:50.020
  • We have to wonder who will be involved in this conflict.
  • 00:07:51.140 --> 00:07:54.240
  • Revelation 9:16 says, "Now the number of the army
  • 00:07:54.240 --> 00:07:59.050
  • "of the horsemen was 200 million;
  • 00:07:59.050 --> 00:08:02.180
  • "I heard the number of them."
  • 00:08:02.180 --> 00:08:04.200
  • Mao Tse Tung, the late leader of China boasted
  • 00:08:04.200 --> 00:08:08.060
  • in his diary that he could field an army of 200 million.
  • 00:08:08.060 --> 00:08:13.040
  • It is no coincidence that this godless,
  • 00:08:14.090 --> 00:08:16.290
  • atheistic man would say the very number
  • 00:08:16.290 --> 00:08:20.270
  • for his army that is the same number
  • 00:08:20.270 --> 00:08:23.290
  • of the army found in Revelation 9:16.
  • 00:08:23.290 --> 00:08:27.170
  • Does this mean China will be a part of this end time war?
  • 00:08:27.170 --> 00:08:32.150
  • It's highly likely.
  • 00:08:32.150 --> 00:08:33.290
  • However, there are two other entities
  • 00:08:33.290 --> 00:08:36.250
  • that could also field a 200 million man army.
  • 00:08:36.250 --> 00:08:41.000
  • The Islamic world has a population of 1.7 billion.
  • 00:08:41.000 --> 00:08:46.000
  • India has over 1.3 billion in population.
  • 00:08:47.040 --> 00:08:51.030
  • Any of these entities could fulfill this prophecy.
  • 00:08:51.030 --> 00:08:55.270
  • We definitely should consider the Islamic faction concerning
  • 00:08:57.230 --> 00:09:02.110
  • this prophecy since this war emanates
  • 00:09:02.110 --> 00:09:06.040
  • from the Euphrates River and since every inch
  • 00:09:06.040 --> 00:09:09.030
  • of the Euphrates is controlled by Islamic nations.
  • 00:09:09.030 --> 00:09:13.180
  • It seems almost sure the United States will be involved
  • 00:09:13.180 --> 00:09:17.210
  • in the Euphrates River war.
  • 00:09:17.210 --> 00:09:20.020
  • America has troops in both Iraq and Syria,
  • 00:09:20.020 --> 00:09:23.280
  • the two nations that contain most of the Euphrates.
  • 00:09:23.280 --> 00:09:28.280
  • Beside this, the United States has the nuclear fire power
  • 00:09:30.100 --> 00:09:34.060
  • to kill 2.5 billion people.
  • 00:09:35.020 --> 00:09:38.060
  • Many people have asked when World War III will take place.
  • 00:09:40.060 --> 00:09:44.180
  • The prophecy about World War III is given
  • 00:09:44.180 --> 00:09:47.070
  • in Revelation 9:13-21.
  • 00:09:47.070 --> 00:09:51.040
  • The beginning of the Great Tribulation is then
  • 00:09:51.040 --> 00:09:54.000
  • recorded in the very next chapter.
  • 00:09:54.000 --> 00:09:56.240
  • In Revelation 10:5-6,
  • 00:09:56.240 --> 00:09:59.030
  • an angel stands with one foot on the land
  • 00:09:59.030 --> 00:10:02.030
  • and one foot on the sea declaring
  • 00:10:02.030 --> 00:10:04.080
  • that delay shall be no longer.
  • 00:10:04.080 --> 00:10:06.240
  • This marks the beginning of the final 3 1/2 years
  • 00:10:06.240 --> 00:10:10.080
  • called the Great Tribulation.
  • 00:10:10.080 --> 00:10:13.100
  • Revelation 11 is then devoted
  • 00:10:13.100 --> 00:10:15.230
  • to the events of the final 3 1/2 years known
  • 00:10:15.230 --> 00:10:19.120
  • as the Great Tribulation and culminates
  • 00:10:19.120 --> 00:10:22.050
  • with the sounding of the seventh and final trumpet.
  • 00:10:22.050 --> 00:10:25.280
  • At the time of the seventh trumpet,
  • 00:10:25.280 --> 00:10:27.160
  • Revelation 11:15 tells us, "The kingdoms of this world
  • 00:10:27.160 --> 00:10:32.160
  • "are become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ."
  • 00:10:34.000 --> 00:10:37.200
  • This passage describes the Second Coming of Jesus
  • 00:10:37.200 --> 00:10:42.080
  • and the establishment of the Kingdom of God on earth.
  • 00:10:42.080 --> 00:10:46.220
  • All these facts teach us that World War III will happen
  • 00:10:46.220 --> 00:10:51.070
  • before the Great Tribulation.
  • 00:10:51.070 --> 00:10:53.130
  • However, we can't tell exactly how long
  • 00:10:53.130 --> 00:10:56.280
  • before the Great Tribulation the war will occur.
  • 00:10:56.280 --> 00:11:01.080
  • Let's now consider the likely order
  • 00:11:01.080 --> 00:11:04.100
  • of these prophetic fulfillments.
  • 00:11:04.100 --> 00:11:07.150
  • Dave, take us through the timeline.
  • 00:11:07.150 --> 00:11:10.040
  • - The sixth trumpet war will happen either just before
  • 00:11:10.040 --> 00:11:13.060
  • or just after the prophesied peace agreement
  • 00:11:13.060 --> 00:11:16.000
  • in the Middle East.
  • 00:11:16.000 --> 00:11:17.110
  • The Bible calls this
  • 00:11:17.110 --> 00:11:18.220
  • agreement the confirmation of the covenant.
  • 00:11:18.220 --> 00:11:21.060
  • The peace agreement will establish the final borders
  • 00:11:21.060 --> 00:11:23.200
  • of Israel and it will place the Temple Mount
  • 00:11:23.200 --> 00:11:26.130
  • under a sharing arrangement.
  • 00:11:26.130 --> 00:11:28.140
  • And this will open the door for the Jews
  • 00:11:28.140 --> 00:11:30.230
  • to build their third temple on the Temple Mount.
  • 00:11:30.230 --> 00:11:34.000
  • The signing of the peace agreement will mark the beginning
  • 00:11:34.000 --> 00:11:37.060
  • of the final seven years to the Battle of Armageddon
  • 00:11:37.060 --> 00:11:40.090
  • and Second Coming of Jesus Christ.
  • 00:11:40.090 --> 00:11:42.290
  • So the question is what happens next?
  • 00:11:42.290 --> 00:11:45.280
  • Well, when we come back, we'll consider
  • 00:11:45.280 --> 00:11:48.080
  • what the world will look like after
  • 00:11:48.080 --> 00:11:50.160
  • 2.5 billion people are killed and what will happen
  • 00:11:50.160 --> 00:11:55.120
  • to the United States and to Israel after World War III.
  • 00:11:55.120 --> 00:12:00.140
  • We will also explore who the key participants
  • 00:12:01.190 --> 00:12:03.230
  • in the government of the Antichrist will be.
  • 00:12:03.230 --> 00:12:06.180
  • So stay tuned.
  • 00:12:06.180 --> 00:12:07.210

  • 00:14:09.130 --> 00:14:12.140
  • that you see occurring before or to start World War III.
  • 00:14:12.140 --> 00:14:16.270
  • - It could be another terror attack on the United States.
  • 00:14:18.230 --> 00:14:23.130
  • Israel could attack Iran, especially if Israel learns
  • 00:14:23.130 --> 00:14:27.080
  • Iran is moving toward acquiring nuclear weapons.
  • 00:14:27.080 --> 00:14:30.250
  • Israel knows one nuclear bomb would destroy their country.
  • 00:14:30.250 --> 00:14:35.250
  • And the leaders of Iran have said repeatedly
  • 00:14:36.290 --> 00:14:39.100
  • that they are going to wipe Israel off the map.
  • 00:14:39.100 --> 00:14:42.210
  • The United States could attack Iran in support of Israel.
  • 00:14:42.210 --> 00:14:47.210
  • Iran's Deputy Chief of Staff warned
  • 00:14:47.210 --> 00:14:50.240
  • in the August 30th, 2008 edition of the Jerusalem Post,
  • 00:14:50.240 --> 00:14:55.240
  • "Should Israel or the United States attack Iran,
  • 00:14:57.060 --> 00:14:59.030
  • "it would be the start of another world war."
  • 00:14:59.030 --> 00:15:03.120
  • Though we don't know exactly what will trigger the beginning
  • 00:15:05.030 --> 00:15:09.030
  • of World War III, we do know this war will occur.
  • 00:15:09.030 --> 00:15:12.260
  • Several noted historians say
  • 00:15:12.260 --> 00:15:15.210
  • we are already involved in this war.
  • 00:15:15.210 --> 00:15:17.240
  • Mr. James Woolsey, Director of the CIA
  • 00:15:17.240 --> 00:15:20.180
  • under President Clinton's administration
  • 00:15:20.180 --> 00:15:22.290
  • believed World War III began on 9-1-1
  • 00:15:22.290 --> 00:15:26.100
  • with the attack on the twin towers.
  • 00:15:26.100 --> 00:15:29.150
  • Thomas Friedman, the famous columnist
  • 00:15:29.150 --> 00:15:31.090
  • for the New York Times, believed the same thing.
  • 00:15:31.090 --> 00:15:35.020
  • Newt Gingrich, former Speaker of the House,
  • 00:15:35.020 --> 00:15:37.080
  • said, "World War III began on 9-1-1."
  • 00:15:37.080 --> 00:15:41.270
  • Whatever the cause, the conflict that is going
  • 00:15:41.270 --> 00:15:45.200
  • to be triggered when World War III begins,
  • 00:15:45.200 --> 00:15:48.130
  • will engulf the whole world.
  • 00:15:48.130 --> 00:15:51.260
  • Since the war will kill 2.5 billion human beings,
  • 00:15:51.260 --> 00:15:56.260
  • it is unlikely that it will be anything other
  • 00:15:58.020 --> 00:16:00.090
  • than a nuclear war.
  • 00:16:00.090 --> 00:16:02.270
  • In consideration of all these things,
  • 00:16:02.270 --> 00:16:06.140
  • how will this war end?
  • 00:16:06.140 --> 00:16:08.090
  • How long will this war take?
  • 00:16:08.090 --> 00:16:10.120
  • It is difficult to believe anyone will survive a war
  • 00:16:10.120 --> 00:16:14.170
  • like what we know is coming.
  • 00:16:14.170 --> 00:16:16.190
  • Nations will be completely wiped out.
  • 00:16:16.190 --> 00:16:20.110
  • There are people in power right now
  • 00:16:20.110 --> 00:16:23.050
  • who are willing and able to push the button
  • 00:16:23.050 --> 00:16:26.190
  • to begin the conflict of all conflicts.
  • 00:16:26.190 --> 00:16:30.110
  • The Bible says it is going to happen.
  • 00:16:30.110 --> 00:16:33.150
  • Although we know these frightening events will occur,
  • 00:16:33.150 --> 00:16:37.240
  • there is a place of safety.
  • 00:16:37.240 --> 00:16:40.120
  • That place is in Jesus Christ.
  • 00:16:40.120 --> 00:16:43.100
  • American-Israeli friendship.
  • 00:16:45.260 --> 00:16:48.110
  • To discover the United States role in end time prophecy,
  • 00:16:48.110 --> 00:16:53.030
  • let's consider what happen to the nation of Israel.
  • 00:16:53.030 --> 00:16:57.020
  • We know Israel will survive World War III
  • 00:16:57.020 --> 00:17:00.070
  • because she will build her third temple
  • 00:17:00.070 --> 00:17:02.270
  • on Temple Mount when the war is over.
  • 00:17:02.270 --> 00:17:05.100
  • When the temple is completed,
  • 00:17:06.060 --> 00:17:08.120
  • Israel will resume animal sacrifices.
  • 00:17:08.120 --> 00:17:11.230
  • This indicates a religious revival for Israel.
  • 00:17:11.230 --> 00:17:16.140
  • All of this will occur
  • 00:17:16.140 --> 00:17:18.120
  • before the Antichrist assumes global power.
  • 00:17:18.120 --> 00:17:22.010
  • It is evident that this time will be a short time of peace.
  • 00:17:22.010 --> 00:17:27.010
  • Israel believes the key to peace on earth is
  • 00:17:28.050 --> 00:17:30.040
  • to rebuild the temple and for the Messiah to return.
  • 00:17:30.040 --> 00:17:35.020
  • To identify America's end time role,
  • 00:17:35.020 --> 00:17:38.090
  • we must consider who will be a part
  • 00:17:38.090 --> 00:17:41.100
  • of the 2.5 billion people killed during World War III.
  • 00:17:41.100 --> 00:17:46.030
  • It seems like Islam will be a part of that number
  • 00:17:46.030 --> 00:17:50.070
  • since the Islamic world controls the Euphrates River
  • 00:17:50.070 --> 00:17:55.000
  • and that's the area where the war will begin.
  • 00:17:55.000 --> 00:17:58.200
  • Additionally, because of their strong belief
  • 00:17:58.200 --> 00:18:01.190
  • in their Islamic doctrine, it is unlikely
  • 00:18:01.190 --> 00:18:04.280
  • Islam will be willing to compromise enough
  • 00:18:04.280 --> 00:18:07.170
  • to blend in with the prophesied world government
  • 00:18:07.170 --> 00:18:11.030
  • that will follow the war.
  • 00:18:11.030 --> 00:18:13.040
  • Most likely, Islam will be largely eliminated
  • 00:18:13.040 --> 00:18:16.090
  • in World War III or at least greatly weakened.
  • 00:18:16.090 --> 00:18:21.050
  • - Irvin, I've noticed China is not represented
  • 00:18:21.050 --> 00:18:24.270
  • in the beast of Daniel 7 or Revelation 13.
  • 00:18:24.270 --> 00:18:29.190
  • The dragon very specifically refers
  • 00:18:29.190 --> 00:18:32.010
  • to Satan giving power to the one world government system.
  • 00:18:32.010 --> 00:18:36.130
  • It's not referring to China.
  • 00:18:36.130 --> 00:18:39.030
  • But Revelation 16 mentions that
  • 00:18:39.030 --> 00:18:40.280
  • when the Euphrates River dries up at the time of Armageddon,
  • 00:18:40.280 --> 00:18:45.160
  • the kings of the east will come down
  • 00:18:45.160 --> 00:18:48.020
  • to make war with Israel.
  • 00:18:48.020 --> 00:18:49.230
  • Many believe the kings of the east
  • 00:18:49.230 --> 00:18:51.100
  • may be referring to China.
  • 00:18:51.100 --> 00:18:53.130
  • However, the kings of the east that will invade Israel
  • 00:18:53.130 --> 00:18:57.200
  • at Armageddon are specifically named
  • 00:18:57.200 --> 00:19:00.020
  • in Ezekiel 38:2-6
  • 00:19:00.020 --> 00:19:04.060
  • and it lists Meshech, the original word for Moscow,
  • 00:19:04.060 --> 00:19:07.180
  • and Rosh, or Russia.
  • 00:19:07.180 --> 00:19:09.220
  • It also names Persia which is Iran
  • 00:19:09.220 --> 00:19:12.030
  • as well as Libya and Ethiopia.
  • 00:19:12.030 --> 00:19:15.070
  • These countries are the coalition of nations
  • 00:19:15.070 --> 00:19:18.240
  • that will come down against Israel
  • 00:19:18.240 --> 00:19:20.230
  • under the world government flag.
  • 00:19:20.230 --> 00:19:23.120
  • And since China's not included in this coalition,
  • 00:19:23.120 --> 00:19:27.060
  • the question is does this mean it will be wiped out
  • 00:19:28.200 --> 00:19:30.260
  • during World War III?
  • 00:19:30.260 --> 00:19:32.180
  • - There are 1.3 billion people in China.
  • 00:19:32.180 --> 00:19:37.090
  • So it is very possible.
  • 00:19:37.090 --> 00:19:39.050
  • But if China is included in the one third of the world
  • 00:19:39.050 --> 00:19:42.140
  • that will be killed, there are still another
  • 00:19:42.140 --> 00:19:45.090
  • 1.2 billion people who will die in the war.
  • 00:19:45.090 --> 00:19:50.040
  • This brings up another question regarding
  • 00:19:50.040 --> 00:19:52.160
  • America's role in the end time.
  • 00:19:52.160 --> 00:19:55.150
  • Revelation 13:1-2 describes the world government
  • 00:19:55.150 --> 00:19:58.290
  • that will become the power base of the Antichrist
  • 00:19:58.290 --> 00:20:02.050
  • in the end time after World War III.
  • 00:20:02.050 --> 00:20:04.190
  • The world government beast will be made up
  • 00:20:04.190 --> 00:20:06.220
  • of the leopard, which is Germany,
  • 00:20:06.220 --> 00:20:08.210
  • the bear, Russia, the lion, Great Britain,
  • 00:20:08.210 --> 00:20:11.140
  • and the 10-horned kingdom that arise out of Europe.
  • 00:20:11.140 --> 00:20:16.060
  • Understanding this, we know the center
  • 00:20:16.060 --> 00:20:19.150
  • of world power will swing to Europe after the war.
  • 00:20:19.150 --> 00:20:24.060
  • Alongside this world political power,
  • 00:20:24.060 --> 00:20:27.050
  • will be a world religious power.
  • 00:20:27.050 --> 00:20:30.120
  • There will be a coalition
  • 00:20:30.120 --> 00:20:31.200
  • between the Antichrist and a religious leader
  • 00:20:31.200 --> 00:20:34.110
  • who the Bible calls the false prophet.
  • 00:20:34.110 --> 00:20:38.040
  • This false prophet will be the leader
  • 00:20:38.040 --> 00:20:40.020
  • of a global religious system and will join many
  • 00:20:40.020 --> 00:20:43.190
  • Catholics and Protestants together.
  • 00:20:43.190 --> 00:20:46.260
  • He will lead the world religion into an alliance
  • 00:20:46.260 --> 00:20:50.020
  • with the Antichrist and his one world government.
  • 00:20:50.020 --> 00:20:54.030
  • All who will not compromise their religious convictions
  • 00:20:54.030 --> 00:20:57.290
  • to join this political religious union will be labeled
  • 00:20:57.290 --> 00:21:03.000
  • as religious extremists.
  • 00:21:03.230 --> 00:21:05.190
  • Religious extremism will be blamed for World War III.
  • 00:21:05.190 --> 00:21:10.000
  • So anyone who does not conform to mainstream
  • 00:21:10.000 --> 00:21:13.180
  • religion will be labeled as a religious terrorist.
  • 00:21:13.180 --> 00:21:18.040
  • The Bible says they will be persecuted for His name's sake.
  • 00:21:18.040 --> 00:21:23.040
  • Those who are unwilling to bow
  • 00:21:24.000 --> 00:21:25.230
  • to the belief that all religions are equal
  • 00:21:25.230 --> 00:21:28.280
  • and should be accepted will be persecuted.
  • 00:21:28.280 --> 00:21:32.160
  • We already see interfaith philosophy being established.
  • 00:21:32.160 --> 00:21:36.160
  • Anyone who tries to convert people
  • 00:21:36.160 --> 00:21:38.130
  • to his religion is accused of causing religious conflict.
  • 00:21:38.130 --> 00:21:42.280
  • And in some countries, this can result in imprisonment.
  • 00:21:42.280 --> 00:21:47.240
  • - Where does the United States fit
  • 00:21:47.240 --> 00:21:50.000
  • into this one world system?
  • 00:21:50.000 --> 00:21:52.160
  • Why are the eagle's wings missing
  • 00:21:52.160 --> 00:21:55.030
  • from the world government beast in Revelation 13?
  • 00:21:55.030 --> 00:21:58.220
  • Revelation 12 is the only other place
  • 00:21:58.220 --> 00:22:02.150
  • where the eagle's wings are mentioned.
  • 00:22:02.150 --> 00:22:05.000
  • Revelation 12:14 says, "And to the woman were given
  • 00:22:05.000 --> 00:22:09.100
  • "two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly
  • 00:22:09.100 --> 00:22:11.220
  • "into the wilderness, into her place,
  • 00:22:11.220 --> 00:22:14.150
  • "where she is nourished for a time, and times,
  • 00:22:14.150 --> 00:22:17.210
  • "and half a time, from the face of the serpent."
  • 00:22:17.210 --> 00:22:21.030
  • The woman in this passage with the 12 stars
  • 00:22:21.030 --> 00:22:24.230
  • about her head is the nation of Israel.
  • 00:22:24.230 --> 00:22:27.190
  • The 12 stars represent the 12 tribes of Israel.
  • 00:22:27.190 --> 00:22:30.260
  • So the eagle is described protecting Israel
  • 00:22:30.260 --> 00:22:35.130
  • against the Antichrist and Satan for time, times,
  • 00:22:35.130 --> 00:22:40.030
  • and half a time which is the same as 3 1/2 years.
  • 00:22:40.030 --> 00:22:44.050
  • This 3 1/2 years is the time of the Great Tribulation
  • 00:22:44.050 --> 00:22:49.010
  • which will immediately proceed the Battle of Armageddon
  • 00:22:49.010 --> 00:22:52.040
  • and the Second Coming of Jesus Christ to the earth.
  • 00:22:52.040 --> 00:22:55.130
  • And this let's us know that Israel will never fall
  • 00:22:55.130 --> 00:22:59.050
  • under the control of the Antichrist
  • 00:22:59.050 --> 00:23:01.120
  • throughout the Great Tribulation period.
  • 00:23:01.120 --> 00:23:04.020
  • He will only invade Israel at the end
  • 00:23:04.020 --> 00:23:06.210
  • of the Great Tribulation during the Battle of Armageddon.
  • 00:23:06.210 --> 00:23:11.010
  • - Even though the Antichrist will dominate the world
  • 00:23:11.010 --> 00:23:13.210
  • during the end time, yet other Scriptures indicate
  • 00:23:13.210 --> 00:23:16.150
  • that some nations will never be controlled by him.
  • 00:23:16.150 --> 00:23:19.220
  • For example, Daniel 11:41 says,
  • 00:23:19.220 --> 00:23:22.280
  • "He shall also enter into the glorious land,
  • 00:23:22.280 --> 00:23:27.140
  • "and many countries shall be overthrown:
  • 00:23:27.140 --> 00:23:29.270
  • "but these shall escape out of his hand,
  • 00:23:29.270 --> 00:23:32.240
  • "even Edom, and Moab, and the chief
  • 00:23:32.240 --> 00:23:35.010
  • "of the children of Ammon."
  • 00:23:35.010 --> 00:23:37.030
  • Edom is southern Jordan, presently known as Petra,
  • 00:23:37.030 --> 00:23:40.130
  • the Moab mountains are in central Jordan,
  • 00:23:40.130 --> 00:23:42.210
  • and Ammon is Amman, Jordan, the nation's capital.
  • 00:23:42.210 --> 00:23:47.210
  • Jordan will never be controlled by the Antichrist.
  • 00:23:49.000 --> 00:23:52.170
  • As we have previously discussed,
  • 00:23:52.170 --> 00:23:54.280
  • Israel will never fall under the power of the Antichrist.
  • 00:23:54.280 --> 00:23:58.120
  • And since the United States fights against the Antichrist
  • 00:23:58.120 --> 00:24:01.220
  • to protect Israel, it is obvious
  • 00:24:01.220 --> 00:24:04.090
  • that the US will not be under the power of the Antichrist.
  • 00:24:04.090 --> 00:24:08.290
  • There may even be other nations that do not bow
  • 00:24:08.290 --> 00:24:12.090
  • to the dominion of this one world leader.
  • 00:24:12.090 --> 00:24:16.060
  • Here's the thing we all should realize.
  • 00:24:16.060 --> 00:24:19.060
  • All of us are going to die.
  • 00:24:19.060 --> 00:24:21.200
  • Whether it's in this prophesied war
  • 00:24:21.200 --> 00:24:24.130
  • or whether it's through natural causes.
  • 00:24:24.130 --> 00:24:26.180
  • God made life that way.
  • 00:24:26.180 --> 00:24:28.090
  • The Scripture tells us it's appointed
  • 00:24:28.090 --> 00:24:29.260
  • unto man once to die after that the judgment.
  • 00:24:29.260 --> 00:24:33.270
  • We are put on this earth for a very short period of time.
  • 00:24:33.270 --> 00:24:37.280
  • The reason we are placed on the earth is
  • 00:24:37.280 --> 00:24:40.090
  • to prepare for our eternal existence.
  • 00:24:40.090 --> 00:24:43.030
  • God wants all of us to have eternal life.
  • 00:24:43.030 --> 00:24:46.010
  • Therefore, He took upon Himself a human body
  • 00:24:46.010 --> 00:24:48.280
  • in order to create for us a plan of salvation.
  • 00:24:48.280 --> 00:24:51.200
  • His plan is called being born again.
  • 00:24:51.200 --> 00:24:54.260
  • Jesus said in John chapter three,
  • 00:24:54.260 --> 00:24:57.090
  • "Except the person is born again,
  • 00:24:57.090 --> 00:24:59.180
  • "he cannot enter the kingdom of God."
  • 00:24:59.180 --> 00:25:02.110
  • The most important thing in all of our lives is
  • 00:25:02.110 --> 00:25:06.230
  • that we must prepare for eternity.
  • 00:25:06.230 --> 00:25:09.060

  • it's not God's will that any should perish
