Let me share with you some very pertinent and exciting facts that not only suggest, but loudly proclaim that the Beast and Antichrist have now been revealed, and the Rapture is imminent. As you read this, however, you need to remember that the supposed sequence of events that the mainstream Bible Prophecy teachers have held onto for years are only assumptions based on interpretation, and they are very likely wrong in many of their assumptions, as this short article will reveal.
First of all, as I said in earlier posts on my Facebook timeline and Ministry blog recently, we are experiencing tribulation right now, and all believers will and do experience tribulation and persecution if they believe and have faith in Christ, and love and follow Him. Furthermore, there is every reason to believe that we are experiencing the first part of the final End Time Tribulation before God's Wrath is poured out at the opening of the Sixth Seal. Furthermore, there is reason to believe that we are now in the period of the Fifth Seal - as all the recent beheaded martyrs in the Middle East and elsewhere are a testament to.
I believe that this current tribulation period is not a recent one, but is one that has been going on a for a long time, and has seen some of the most horrific persecution of Christians and Jews that the world has ever seen. Students of history should be able to see that this tribulation period began at the onset of World War I, and has continued through World War II and beyond, with the constant wars since then. The reason this should be clear is that over 10 Million civilian Jews and 50 million civilian Christians and people of other faiths died in concentration camps or in mass executions - not only in Germany, Austria, Poland and Russia, but throughout China, Japan and many other Asian countries.
In my opinion, therefore, the first Five Seal Judgments of the Book of Revelation have already been opened, and these mark the first part of the Great Tribulation, or "the tribulation of those days" that Yahshua spoke of in Matthew 24:9 and 24:29, which would come before the Great Tribulation spoken of in Matthew 24:21. Furthermore, this tribulation has been ongoing, and the worst and last portion of the Great Tribulation that will follow it will begin when God's Wrath is unleashed in the very near future. If this is correct, it means that the events spoken of in Matthew 24:29 are actually the events at the opening of the Sixth Seal Judgment in Revelation 6, which also mentions that the the Sun and Moon would be darkened, and the stars will fall from heaven:
~*~ Matthew 24:29 ~*~ “Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.”
~*~ Revelation 6:12-13 ~*~ “I looked when He opened the sixth seal, and behold, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became like blood. 13 And the stars of heaven fell to the earth, as a fig tree drops its late figs when it is shaken by a mighty wind.”These descriptions of events that will take place at the time of the beginning of the Great Tribulation and at the time of the opening of the Sixth Seal are almost identical, and this similarity does strongly suggest that these events are one and the same. Furthermore, the world has already witnessed a whole series of amazing full Lunar Eclipses or Blood Moons and Solar Eclipses or Sackcloth Suns on Jewish Feasts or New Moons, and more Blood Moons and Sackcloth Suns will be upcoming in 2017 and 2018. For further verification of this fact, I have written several articles that show when and how the first Five Seals were opened. Links to these articles can be found at the end of this article.
To further verify my assertion that the Beast and the Antichrist have been revealed, we need to focus on the Scriptures that mention the Antichrist, as follows:
~*~ 1 John 2:18 ~*~ “Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour.”
~*~ 1 John 2:22 ~*~ “Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist who denies the Father and the Son.”
~*~ 1 John 4:3 ~*~ “and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world.”
~*~ 2 John 1:7 ~*~ “For many deceivers have gone out into the world who do not confess Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.”The last verse in particular sets the stage for identifying the antichrist as any one person or nation that denies the fact that Yahshua Ha Mashiach or Jesus the Christ is going to return in the flesh at the climax to the Great Tribulation. This event is known to Bible students as the Second Coming of Christ to fight the Battle of Armageddon.
When taken together, the Bible verses mentioning the antichrist make it clear that there are MANY antichrists, not just one. As another example of this, look at the description of the Beast from the Sea in Revelation Chapter 13, which is often associated with the Antichrist. It is described as having seven heads. These seven heads can be connected to nations or kings, and the ten horns can be seen as lesser nations or kings that serve the seven top kings or nations. What this means is that the Beast is a system of tyrannical international government that is being controlled by seven nations with ten other leaders or nations that help the first seven nations, and figure prominently in its affairs. In addition, Revelation 17 tells us that this Beast is being ridden or controlled by a Woman or Church that is a wicked Harlot - the antithesis of the Woman Clothed with the Sun described in Revelation 12, which is a past picture of the Yahshua's mother Miriam, as well as a future picture of the Bride of Christ.
Personally, I believe that this Beast is a perfect description of the United Nations Security Council, which has seven permanent member nations that primarily govern its affairs: These are the USA or United States, France, China, Russia, and the United Kingdom or UK, which is really three nations in one: England, Ireland, and Scotland. That accounts for the seven heads of the Beast and the Scarlet Beast in the following Scriptures:
~*~ Revelation 13:1-2, The Beast from the Sea ~*~ “Then I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name. 2 Now the beast which I saw was like a leopard (i.e. France and Germany), his feet were like the feet of a bear (i.e. Russia), and his mouth like the mouth of a lion (i.e. the United Kingdom). The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority.”
~*~ Revelation 17:3-6 - The Woman Sitting on the Beast ~*~ “So he carried me away in the Spirit into the wilderness. And I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast which was full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. 4 The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the filthiness of her fornication. 5 And on her forehead a name was written:
MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT,THE MOTHER OF HARLOTSAND OF THE ABOMINATIONSOF THE EARTH.
6 I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. And when I saw her, I marveled with great amazement.”The Woman or Church riding the Beast is a picture of the One World Religion being established by the Vatican and British Crown. It is not just a joining of all the world's faiths into one Pagan religion, but a religion that worships a seemingly benign but desperately wicked goddess, or goddesses of the Earth, and that sees mankind as a parasite that needs to be drastically reduced in number. This Earth worship is hidden in many international government agencies that use catch phrases such as "environmental protection", and "sustainable development".
Many environmentalists and "Climate Change" advocates are part of this worship system, which views humanity as a parasite. Their worship wickedly places the importance of the Earth in the place of mankind, and sees mankind as a disease or virus that needs to be controlled, selectively destroyed, and diminished in order to preserve nature. One only has to take a look at all the power that the United Nations now wields over all of the Earth's natural resources to know this is true. Almost every nation in this world has surrendered their natural resources to UN dictates and laws, including all the highly developed nations like the USA, and all the developed nations of Europe, Africa and Asia.
As another way of identifying these seven heads or nations of the Beast from the Sea, Revelation 13, verse 3 tells us that one of these heads looked as if it was mortally wounded, but then it was healed. That was and is none other than Russia, which fell apart into utter ruin and economic collapse in its 1993 appellation as the USSR or Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, and later was reorganized to eventually become the Russian Federation, which now has one of the strongest economies in the world under President Vladimir Putin.
In addition to the seven main nations that govern the affairs of the United Nations, there are ten non-permanent member nations in the UN, and these vary from year to year, but at least half of them are usually from some part of Europe. These ten nations are represented by the ten horns of the Beast in the Book of Revelation, and we are also told in Revelation Chapter 13 that this Beast will worship the Dragon described in Revelation Chapter 12, which signifies Satan's dominion over the nations of the Earth. Interestingly, this Dragon is described as having seven heads and ten horns, exactly like the Beast from the Sea. This means that the Beast from the Sea is the kingdom of the Dragon, Satan or Antichrist, and this is the demonic final End Time world government that the whole world now calls the New World Order:
~*~ Revelation 12:3-4, The Red Dragon ~*~ “And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great, fiery red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems on his heads. 4 His tail drew a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to give birth, to devour her Child as soon as it was born.”This connection of the Woman riding the Beast, the Red Dragon and the Beast from the Sea is the reason why many people equate this Beast System with the Antichrist, and since the Bible makes it clear that there are many antichrists, it connects to the fact that so many Protestant churches and ministers are now joining with Rome under the Ecumenical banner of the Vatican to form the One World Religion that is signified by the Woman or Harlot that rides the Beast. It also connects to the fact that the member nations of the United Nations have been working tirelessly to take over most of the world's resources under the UN banner, and their sustainable development programs are taking the world in a dangerous humanity-hating direction that is antichristian because their tyrannical lordship over, and worship of the Earth is diabolical in nature.
Tellingly, the Woman or Pope who rides the Beast appears to have all of the same goals as the Dragon, the Antichrist, and the Beast, calling for humanity to accept every religion as one in purpose, and to make it their common objective to preserve and protect the Earth, and to establish world peace at all costs - even if it means accepting what God calls abominable and unclean. For this reason, we can assume that Pope Francis is a representation of the False Prophet, and the President of the United Nations is representative of the Antichrist, although the entire group of leaders in the United Nations are also collectively an Antichrist. This assumption about the Beast fits the available facts given to us in the Bible prophecies of the Book of Revelation very well, as can be seen in this following Scripture:
~*~ Revelation 13:3-4, The Beast from the Sea ~*~ “And I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded (the USSR), and his deadly wound was healed (as the Russian Federation). And all the world marveled and followed the beast (which is not just Russia, but all seven leader nations in the United Nations). 4 So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?”The assumption that the Dragon, the Antichrist, and the Beast are a single entity called the United Nations is further reinforced by the fact that the United Nations has become the defacto protector of the Earth, which many of the leaders in the UN may secretly worship as a divine entity known as Gaia by the Ancient Greeks. As such, the UN has assumed the governance of the world's natural resources under the assumption that Climate Change is a man-made problem resulting from human use of fossil fuels, when it is far more likely that the Solar Cycles of our Sun have much more to do with Climate Change, and this suggests that it is a divinely controlled judgment of the Earth that is related to mankind's spiritual rather than physical actions.
Uncannily, most of the nations of the world have completely fallen for this silent and deadly United Nations power grab under the assumption that Climate Change has resulted from the use of fossil fuels, and they have all begun to submit to its mandates concerning the world's environmental systems. As a result, the UN now has the authority to control almost all laws governing land use in all the nations of the world that are involved in the United Nations.
As another sign that the Dragon, the Antichrist, and the Beast are signified by the nations in the United Nations, the main leaders of the United Nations are constantly targeting Israel with their hate. This hate can be seen by the fact that the UN makes much of the false claims of Israel's human rights violations, yet ignores the real human rights violations of her enemies, such as Hamas, Hezbollah and ISIS: Radical Islamic organizations that regularly torture, rape, kill and dismember Christians and Jews. Furthermore, even now, the UN is setting itself up to be the driving power behind enforcing the "Two State Solution", or evil plan to divide Israel into Israel and Palestine. Variations of this plan are to be voted on by the United Nations assembly just before Passover this April 22nd, 2016, and other talks concerning this two state solution are also scheduled for June of 2016.
If this division of Israel is set about to be enforced by the UN sometime this year, then it is safe to say that God's Wrath will soon be poured out against all the nations represented by the UN. Sadly, by virtue of their membership in the UN - all the UN member nations, which signify the whole world, are wittingly or unwittingly standing against Israel - and this means that the entire world is plotting against Israel along with the UN leader nations.
Now, it is my guess that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his government will not allow this division to take place without a fight, which means they may be prepared or forced to use their military might against the world. Since we know that God has vowed in His Word to protect Israel during the upcoming war of Gog and Magog, it is apparent that those nations that go against Israel at this time will be defeated, and Israel will retain some control of its fate - although it may finally agree to give up Jerusalem to be trodden upon by the Gentiles - and occupied and governed by the Antichrist or UN - to keep the peace.
Incidentally, there is no doubt in my mind that Rosh and Magog, which the Prophet Ezekiel mentioned as being major players in the War of Gog and Magog in Ezekiel 38, are referring to Russia. Here is a map I created that shows why I believe this. It ties a history map showing the borders of the USSR in 1922 with an older secular map of a portion of Russia. This old map was created in 1874, and it clearly identifies a portion of Russia as Magog:

So get ready, Tribulation Saints! Your deliverance from this wicked world in the Rapture is coming very, very soon! In anticipation of the Rapture as a possibility this year, and to keep everyone's hopes up, I wrote several articles that look at the High Rapture Watch periods coming up in the near future. Two of them are at the top of the following list, followed by several other articles that show that the Rapture is taught as an event that will happen before the end of the Great Tribulation:
