UNDERSTANDING THE ENDTIME LESSON 6

PURCHASE ISRAEL GOD’S PROPHETIC TIMECLOCK BY IRVIN BAXTER

 

Israel God’s Prophetic Timeclock

TELL US, WHEN WILL THESE THINGS BE AND WHAT WILL BE THE SIGN OF YOUR COMING AND OF THE END OF THE AGE?

 

OUR SUBJECT IS, “ISRAEL, GOD’S PROPHETIC TIME CLOCK.”

 

BELIEVE IT OR NOT, GOD DOES HAVE A TIME CLOCK.

 

THE PROPHECY WE’RE GOING TO BE LOOKING AT TODAY AND IN THE NEXT SEVERAL SEGMENTS IS A PROPHECY WITH A DATE ON IT.

 

MOST PROPHECIES DON’T HAVE A DATE, BUT THIS ONE DOES.

 

WHEN YOU SEE THE PROPHECY CALLED THE CONFIRMATION OF THE COVENANT COME TO PASS, YOU’LL KNOW THAT WE ARE SEVEN YEARS FROM THE BATTLE OF ARMAGEDDON AND SEVEN YEARS FROM THE SECOND COMING OF JESUS CHRIST.

 

THAT’S WHAT’S SO OUTSTANDING ABOUT THIS PARTICULAR PROPHECY AND SO IMPORTANT.

 

WITHOUT UNDERSTANDING THIS PROPHECY, WE WON’T BE ABLE TO PERCEIVE GOD’S TIME CLOCK FOR THE TIME WE LIVE IN NOW.

 

IN OUR LAST LESSON OF UNDERSTANDING THE ENDTIME, WE STUDIED THE HISTORY OF THE NATION OF ISRAEL AND LEARNED WHY THE LAND CALLED ISRAEL BECAME THE PROMISED LAND.

 

WE LEARNED ABOUT THE FATHER OF THE NATION OF ISRAEL, ABRAHAM,

AND ABOUT THE GOD-ORDAINED BORDERS OF THE PROMISED LAND.

 

WE SAW IN SCRIPTURE WHERE GOD PLACED HIS NAME ON THE TEMPLE MOUNT, THAT PLACE CALLED MOUNT MORIAH.

 

WE LEARNED ABOUT THE FIRST TEMPLE AND ITS DESTRUCTION IN 586 B.C.

 

AND THEN, ISRAEL’S FIRST EXILE OF 70 YEARS.

 

WE ALSO LEARNED ABOUT THE SECOND TEMPLE, ITS DESTRUCTION IN 70

A.D. AND ISRAEL’S SECOND EXILE OF 1,878 YEARS.

 

NOW, THE NATION OF ISRAEL WAS FINALLY REBORN, LIKE IT IS

PROPHESIED IN THE BIBLE, ON MAY 14, 1948.

 

AND THEN, FINALLY, THE TEMPLE MOUNT WAS RECLAIMED BY ISRAEL IN THE 1967 SIX DAYS WAR.

 

WE WANT TO TAKE A MOMENT AND TALK ABOUT THIS VERY IMPORTANT EVENT CALLED THE SIX DAYS WAR.

 

IT WAS STUNNING.

 

ISRAEL DEFEATED ALL OF HER ENEMIES IN SIX SHORT DAYS.

 

HERE’S WHAT HAPPENED.

 

ISRAEL CAPTURED THE SINAI DESERT IN THE SOUTH FROM EGYPT, THE GOLAN HEIGHTS IN THE NORTH FROM SYRIA AND THE BIBLICAL AREA FROM JUDEA, SAMARIA, FROM JORDAN, INCLUDING THE ENTIRE CITY OF JERUSALEM.

 

ALL OF THESE TERRITORIES WERE A PART OF THE BIBLICAL PROMISED LAND.

 

THE CROWNING EVENT WAS THE CAPTURE OF THE CITY OF JERUSALEM, AND IN PARTICULAR, THE TEMPLE MOUNT WHERE ALMIGHTY GOD SAID 37 TIMES IN THE OLD TESTAMENT, “I WILL PUT MY NAME THERE.”

 

REMEMBER THIS WAS THE PLACE WHERE ABRAHAM RAISED THE KNIFE OVER ISAAC.

 

THIS IS THE PLACE WHERE GOD TOLD DAVID, “YOU GO BUY THE THRESHING FLOOR OF ARAUNAH.”

 

NOW THEY’RE BACK TO THIS TEMPLE MOUNT WHERE THE FIRST TEMPLE STOOD, WHERE THE SECOND TEMPLE STOOD AND WHERE THE BIBLE SAYS THE THIRD TEMPLE WILL SOON STAND.

 

WHEN THE ISRAELI SOLDIERS FINALLY MADE IT UP ONTO THE TEMPLE MOUNT, THE ARABS RAN FOR THEIR LIVES.

 

I HAVE A PERSONAL FRIEND THAT WAS THERE THAT DAY.

 

  1. GERSHON SOLOMON WAS IN THE ISRAELI DEFENSE FORCES AND HE WAS ON THE TEMPLE MOUNT.

 

HE SAID, “ONE MINUTE THE GUNS WERE BLAZING, AND THEN THE ARABS FLED.

 

SUDDENLY EVERYTHING WAS SILENT.

 

AND THE SOLDIERS THAT HAD BEEN KILLING ONE MINUTE, ALL OF A SUDDEN, THE TEARS BEGAN TO ROLL DOWN THEIR FACES.”

 

GERSHON TOLD ME, “WE WERE ALL WEEPING LIKE BABIES.

 

HERE WE WERE TO THE PLACE WHERE GOD SAID, ‘I WILL PUT MY NAME THERE,’ THE SITE OF THE FIRST TEMPLE, THE SECOND TEMPLE.

 

HERE WE WERE, MANY OF US UNDERSTOOD IT WAS THE DAY OF REDEMPTION.”

 

BUT HE SAID, “THE AMAZING THING WAS THAT NOT ONLY DID THE PEOPLE WHO BELIEVED IN GOD AND THE BIBLE WEEP, BUT THERE WERE YOUNG SOLDIERS THERE WHO WERE RAISED ON THE KIBBUTZ, THEY’D BEEN TAUGHT MARXISM, THEY’D BEEN TAUGHT ATHEISM, THAT THERE WAS NO GOD, THAT THE BIBLE IS A MYTH, BUT THEY WERE WEEPING.”

 

AND GERSHON TURNED TO SOME OF THEM AND SAID, “WHY ARE YOU WEEPING?

 

THIS PLACE MEANS NOTHING TO YOU.”

 

THE REPLY WAS, “WE DON’T KNOW WHY WE’RE WEEPING.

 

WE CAN’T HELP IT.

 

THERE’S AN AWESOME FEELING HERE RIGHT NOW.”

 

IT WAS AN AMAZING DAY BECAUSE IT WAS PART OF THE FULFILLMENT OF GOD’S PROMISE TO THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL.

 

THE WORLD WATCHED THIS STUNNING VICTORY IN AWE. AND WHEN THE ANNOUNCEMENT WENT AROUND THE WORLD, “THE TEMPLE MOUNT IS IN OUR HANDS,” EVEN KINGS AND PRESIDENTS INSTINCTIVELY KNEW THEY WERE WITNESSING AN EVENT OF BIBLICAL PROPORTIONS.

 

THERE IS ONE MORE THING THAT HAPPENED THAT NIGHT THAT I SIMPLY MUST TELL YOU ABOUT.

 

  1. SHLOMO GOREN WAS THE CHIEF RABBI OF THE ISRAEL DEFENSE FORCES AND HE WAS THERE WHEN THE TEMPLE MOUNT WAS TAKEN.

 

THE COMMANDING GENERAL WAS GENERAL UZI.

 

RABBI GOREN TURNED TO GENERAL UZI AND SAID, “NOW’S OUR TIME.

 

TAKE THIS DYNAMITE, BLOW UP THE DOME OF THE ROCK, BLOW UP THE AL-AQSA MOSQUE, PURGE THIS HOLY PLACE OF THE HEATHEN SHRINES.”

 

AND GENERAL UZI SAID, “RABBI, ENOUGH.”

 

BUT SHLOMO GOREN WAS NOT TO BE DETERRED.

 

HE SAID, “YOU’LL GO DOWN IN HISTORY IF YOU’LL DO IT.

 

THIS IS THE MOMENT OF REDEMPTION.”

 

AND GENERAL UZI SAID, “IF YOU DON’T STOP, I’LL TAKE YOU TO JAIL.”

 

RABBI GOREN BOWED HIS HEAD AND WALKED AWAY SILENTLY.

 

IT WAS AN OPPORTUNITY MISSED.

 

MANY PEOPLE BELIEVED THAT IF ISRAEL WOULD HAVE REMOVED THE DOME OF THE ROCK, THE AL-AQSA MOSQUE, AND IMMEDIATELY BEGAN BUILDING THEIR TEMPLE, THE MESSIAH WOULD HAVE SHOWN UP RIGHT THEN.

 

BUT IT WAS NOT TO BE, INSTEAD, ISRAEL DISOBEYED GOD.

 

INSTEAD OF REMOVING THE PAGAN HOUSES OF WORSHIP, ISRAEL’S GOVERNMENT, BELIEVE IT OR NOT, INVITED THE MUSLIM WAKF, THAT’S THE MUSLIM AUTHORITY, BACK AND PLACED THE TEMPLE MOUNT UNDER THEIR CONTROL.

 

WHY DID THEY DO THIS?

 

TWO REASONS: THEY FEARED THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY AND WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF THEY WOULD ACTUALLY DO AWAY WITH THE MUSLIM HOLY PLACES.

 

AND SECONDLY, AND THIS WAS MORE IMPORTANT, THE JEWISH GOVERNMENT WAS SECULAR AND THEY DID NOT WANT TO IGNITE A RELIGIOUS REVIVAL THAT THEY KNEW WOULD SWEEP THEM OUT OF POWER AND BRING ABOUT A RENEWAL OF THE NATION OF ISRAEL AS IT WAS IN BIBLICAL DAYS.

 

CONSEQUENTLY, THEY INVITED THE MUSLIMS BACK AND PUT THEM IN CONTROL OF THE TEMPLE MOUNT.

 

THEY DID NOT DO WHAT GOD TOLD THEM, WHICH WAS TO DRIVE OUT THE INHABITANTS FROM THE PROMISED LAND, BUT THEY ATTEMPTED, INSTEAD, TO CO-EXIST WITH THEM.

 

NOW, I WANT YOU TO SEE WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS THAT ISRAEL SHOULD HAVE DONE.

 

IT’S FOUND IN NUMBERS CHAPTER 33, STARTING WITH VERSE 50.

 

THIS IS GOD SPEAKING TO MOSES.

 

NUMBERS 33:50-52

 

THE DOME OF THE ROCK AND THE AL-AQSA MOSQUE, WERE THE MUSLIM HIGH PLACES AND GOD SPECIFICALLY SAID, “YOU ARE TO PLUCK THOSE DOWN.”

 

NUMBERS 33:53-55

 

THAT’S NUMBERS 33, VERSE 50-55.

 

SO, WHAT HAPPENED?

 

INSTEAD OF DOING WHAT GOD SAID, THE GOVERNMENT OF ISRAEL FEARED MAN AND THEY DID WHAT THEY WANTED TO DO.

 

SIX YEARS LATER, THEIR ENEMIES PLOTTED TO REVERSE THE EFFECTS OF THE 1967 WAR AND TO DESTROY THE TINY NATION OF ISRAEL.

 

SO IN 1973, ON THE HOLIDAY OF YOM KIPPUR, WHICH IS THE DAY OF ATONEMENT, THE HOLIEST DAY IN ISRAEL,

 

THE DAY WHEN MOST OF ISRAEL IS FASTING AND MOST ARE NOT AT THEIR MILITARY POSTS,

 

THE ARAB ARMIES LAUNCHED A TREMENDOUS ATTACK AGAINST THE NATION OF ISRAEL.

 

THEY CAUGHT ISRAEL BY SURPRISE, EVEN TO THE POINT THAT IT LOOKED LIKE THE NATION OF ISRAEL WAS IN DANGER.

 

MOSHE DAYAN, WHO WAS THE DEFENSE MINISTER OF ISRAEL AT THE TIME, SAID TO PRIME MINISTER GOLDA MEIR, “GOLDA, I FEAR FOR THE THIRD TEMPLE.”

 

IT’S INTERESTING THAT YOM KIPPUR IS THE DAY OF JUDGMENT.

 

THAT’S WHEN THE JEWISH PEOPLE BELIEVE, EVEN TO THIS DAY, THAT THEY ARE TO TAKE INVENTORY OF THEMSELVES ON ROSH HASHANAH AND THEY ARE TO BE REPENTING AND FASTING ALL DAY ON YOM KIPPUR, ASKING GOD TO FORGIVE THEIR SIN.

 

BUT IF THEY DON’T REPENT, ACCORDING TO THE JEWISH BELIEF, GOD SENDS JUDGMENT.

 

SO, GOD SENT THE JUDGMENT OF THE YOM KIPPUR WAR AND THEY CAME VERY CLOSE TO BEING TOTALLY DEFEATED.

 

IT HAPPENED TO THEM ON THE DAY OF JUDGMENT.

 

AND IT WAS GOD’S JUDGMENT.

 

SIX YEARS AFTER RETURNING TO THE TEMPLE MOUNT, WHEN THEY COULD HAVE INHERITED THE BLESSINGS OF GOD, IF THEY WOULD HAVE OBEYED GOD, INSTEAD THEY TURNED THE TEMPLE MOUNT OVER TO THE PALESTINIANS.

 

DO YOU REALIZE THAT THE WORD PALESTINIAN IS THE SAME WORD AS PHILISTINE?

 

CAN YOU IMAGINE IN BIBLICAL TIMES IF THE JEWISH PEOPLE HAD DEFEATED THE PHILISTINES AND THEN SAID TO THEM, “OH, BY THE WAY, WE WANT YOU TO COME BACK AND BE IN CHARGE OF OUR TEMPLE MOUNT.”

 

THAT IS UNTHINKABLE.

 

BUT THAT’S WHAT ISRAEL DID IN 1967 AND IT WAS UNTHINKABLE TO GOD AS WELL.

 

AND GOD, IN HIS ANGER, JUDGED THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL ON JUDGMENT DAY, YOM KIPPUR.

 

AS TIME WENT ON AND EVENTS UNFOLDED, ISRAEL SOUGHT TREATIES WITH HER ARAB NEIGHBORS, EVEN THOUGH GOD SAID, “DON’T SIGN ANY TREATIES AND DON’T ALLOW THEM TO STAY IN THE LAND,” BUT ISRAEL DID IT HER WAY.

 

AND IN 1979, AN ISRAELI-EGYPTIAN PEACE TREATY WAS FORMULATED BY

 

  1. JIMMY CARTER, U.S. PRESIDENT, AT THE CAMP DAVID ACCORDS.

 

IT WAS A PEACE AGREEMENT REACHED WITH THE PRESIDENT OF EGYPT, ANWAR SADAT.

 

IT WAS THE FIRST ISRAELI PEACE AGREEMENT WITH AN ARAB STATE.

 

ISRAEL RETURNED ALL THE SINAI BACK TO EGYPT EVEN THOUGH IT IS SPECIFICALLY, IN THE BIBLE, PART OF THE PROMISED LAND.

 

ISRAEL’S NOT LIVING BY THE BIBLE, THEY’RE LIVING ACCORDING TO THEIR OWN INTELLIGENCE, REASON AND DESIRES.

 

THEN IN 1993, THE OSLO PEACE ACCORDS WERE SIGNED ON THE WHITE HOUSE LAWN AND IT WAS THERE THAT YASSER ARAFAT AND YITZHAK RABIN DID THEIR FAMOUS HANDSHAKE WITH BILL CLINTON STANDING IN THE BACKGROUND.

 

THIS OSLO PEACE ACCORDS PROVIDED FOR THE CREATION OF A PALESTINIAN STATE AND CALLED ON ISRAEL TO TRADE PARTS OF THE PROMISED LAND FOR PEACE.

 

WAS GOD WATCHING THE DAY THEY DID ALL THIS?

 

WAS GOD WATCHING THE HANDSHAKE?

 

YOU BETTER BELIEVE THAT HE WAS.

 

THE NEXT YEAR, BECAUSE THE PEACE TRAIN WAS MOVING, THE ISRAELI-JORDANIAN PEACE AGREEMENT WAS SIGNED.

 

THAT WAS 1994.

 

BUT THIS WAS NOT WITHOUT CONSEQUENCE.

 

  1. YITZHAK RABIN WAS BEING PRAISED BY THE WORLD, BUT NOT BY GOD.

 

AND NOVEMBER OF 1995, MR. YITZHAK RABIN WAS ASSASSINATED BY YIGAL AMIR.

 

HE WAS A RIGHT-WING RELIGIOUS ADVOCATE WHO BELIEVED YOU ABSOLUTELY HAD TO KILL A PERSON THAT WAS GIVING AWAY THE PROMISED LAND, SO HE PULLED THE TRIGGER AND YITZHAK RABIN WAS KILLED.

 

NOW, AS EVENTS MOVED ON TO THE YEAR 2000, PRESIDENT BILL CLINTON, AGAIN WANTED TO TRY TO BRING PEACE TO THE MIDDLE EAST.

 

WHEN HE WAS A YOUNG MAN, HIS PASTOR SAID TO HIM, “IF YOU’RE EVER PRESIDENT, YOU NEED TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU ALWAYS STAND BY ISRAEL.”

 

AND BILL CLINTON PROMISED THAT HE WOULD.

 

BUT APPARENTLY PRESIDENT CLINTON DIDN’T FULLY UNDERSTAND WHAT THAT PROMISE REALLY ENTAILED BECAUSE NOW HE’S TRYING TO FACILITATE A PEACE TREATY WHERE ISRAEL HAD PART OF THE PROMISED LAND, BUT NOT ALL OF IT.

 

CLINTON, EHUD BARAK, THE PRIME MINISTER OF ISRAEL AND YASSER ARAFAT, THE PRESIDENT OF THE PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY, MET TOGETHER FOR 14 DAYS AT CAMP DAVID AND THEY TRIED TO PUSH TO A FINAL PEACE AGREEMENT.

 

PRESIDENT CLINTON STROVE WITH ALL OF HIS MIGHT TO DO IT, BUT IT SIMPLY WAS NOT TO BE.

 

WHEN THEY REACHED THE ISSUE OF THE TEMPLE MOUNT, THEY SAID, “WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO WITH THIS?”

 

ARAFAT SAID, “SORRY, THAT’S OUR THIRD HOLY SITE, WE WILL NEVER GIVE IT UP.

 

EHUD BARAK SAID, “BUT YOU HAVE YOUR FIRST HOLY SITE IN MECCA, YOU HAVE YOUR SECOND HOLY SITE IN MEDINA.

 

WE JEWS DON’T EVEN HAVE OUR FIRST HOLY SITE.”

 

ARAFAT SAID, “SORRY, WE CAN’T GIVE IT UP.”

 

AND BARAK SAID, “MY PEOPLE WILL NEVER ALLOW ME TO GIVE IT UP.”

 

PRESIDENT CLINTON SAID, “JUST SHARE IT.

 

THERE’S ENOUGH ROOM THERE FOR EVERYONE.

 

YOU ALL CAN WORSHIP THERE TOGETHER.

 

I’M SURE GOD WILL BE PLEASED.”

 

EVEN THOUGH GOD WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN PLEASED, BUT THAT WAS CLINTON’S IDEA.

 

I’LL NEVER FORGET THE DAY I SAW THE NOTICE IN THE PAPER, “CLINTON PROPOSES SHARING OF TEMPLE MOUNT.”

 

I KNEW I WAS READING SOMETHING PROPHETIC BECAUSE IN THE BIBLE IT SAYS THAT IN THE COMING PEACE AGREEMENT, THE TEMPLE MOUNT WILL BE PLACED UNDER A SHARING ARRANGEMENT.

 

IN REVELATION CHAPTER 11, VERSE 1 AND 2, JOHN WAS TOLD, MEASURE THE JEWISH TEMPLE, DON’T MEASURE THE OUTER COURT OF THE TEMPLE BECAUSE IT WILL BE TRODDEN DOWN BY GENTILES.

 

IT PAINTS A PICTURE 42 MONTHS BEFORE ARMAGEDDON OF THE TEMPLE MOUNT BEING UNDER A SHARING ARRANGEMENT.

 

AND THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT WAS PROPOSED AT CAMP DAVID IN THE YEAR 2000.

 

WE’RE ACTUALLY EXPERIENCING THE PROPHESIES OF THE BIBLE RIGHT NOW.

 

IF WE DON’T REALIZE THAT, WE’RE MISSING ONE OF THE MOST EXCITING ASPECTS OF THE DAY IN WHICH YOU AND I PRESENTLY LIVE.

 

IT IS AN EXCITING TIME.

 

AFTER BARAK DID EVERYTHING TO BRING ABOUT A PEACE AGREEMENT, HE THOUGHT IF HE WAS GOING TO GET AN AGREEMENT, EVEN THOUGH IT WAS A RESULT OF GIVING AWAY MORE THAN HE SHOULD OF, THAT THE ISRAELI PEOPLE WERE SO TIRED OF CONFLICT THAT THEY WOULD VOTE HIM BACK INTO OFFICE BECAUSE HE WAS IN AN ELECTION CAMPAIGN THEN BETWEEN HIMSELF AND ARIEL SHARON.

 

SO, THE WORD WAS OUT THAT HE HAD FINALLY CAPITULATED AND SAID, “YOU CAN HAVE THE TEMPLE MOUNT BACK, WE’LL GO ALL THE WAY BACK TO 1967 BORDERS.”

 

ARIEL SHARON, HAVING HEARD THIS, DECIDED HE WAS GOING TO PAY A VISIT TO THE TEMPLE MOUNT.

 

HE CLEARED IT WITH YASSER ARAFAT, HE CLEARED IT WITH THE RELIGIOUS AUTHORITIES, “I JUST WANT TO GO UP AND VISIT THE TEMPLE MOUNT.”

 

THEY SAID, “DON’T PRAY.

 

DON’T MAKE ANY OUTLANDISH STATEMENTS THERE, JUST MAKE SURE IT’S DONE IN ORDER.”

 

SO, ON SEPTEMBER 28, MR. ARIEL SHARON WENT UP THERE AND HE STOOD ON THE TEMPLE MOUNT, BUT HE ISSUED A STATEMENT THAT DAY SAYING, “THE TEMPLE MOUNT WILL NEVER BE SURRENDERED.

 

IT IS OURS FOREVER.”

 

YASSER ARAFAT WAS LOOKING FOR AN EXCUSE; HE KNEW THAT CAMP DAVID HAD FAILED.

 

SINCE WE CAN’T GET A PEACE DEAL, IT’S BACK TO CONFRONTATION.

 

THE VERY NEXT DAY, ON SEPTEMBER 29, HE ISSUED THE ORDER, “IT’S TIME FOR THE SECOND INTIFADA.”

 

THE WORD INTIFADA MEANS UPRISING.

 

THE FIRST INTIFADA HAD BEEN FROM 1987 UNTIL 1993.

 

IT HAD DIED DOWN DURING THE OSLO PEACE ACCORDS, BUT NOW, HERE IN THE YEAR 2000, THE SECOND INTIFADA COMES BACK WITH A VENGEANCE.

 

DURING THE SECOND INTIFADA 1,000 ISRAELIS DIED AND 5,500 PALESTINIANS DIED.

 

THERE WERE MANY BUS BOMBINGS AND SUICIDE BOMBINGS.

 

DON’T FORGET WHAT GOD SAID, “IF YOU DON’T UTTERLY DRIVE THEM OUT, THEY WILL BECOME PRICKS IN YOUR EYES AND THORNS IN YOUR SIDES.”

 

ALL OF THAT’S COMING TO PASS RIGHT NOW.

 

FINALLY IN THE YEAR 2002, THE UNITED STATES SECRETARY OF STATE, COLIN POWELL, DECIDED THAT ISRAEL AND THE PALESTINIANS WERE NEVER GOING TO BE ABLE TO FORGE A PEACE AGREEMENT TOGETHER.

 

SO, HE DECIDED TO PUT A NEW ALLIANCE TOGETHER CALLED THE QUARTET.

 

HE INVITED RUSSIA, THE EUROPEAN UNION, THE UNITED STATES AND THE UNITED NATIONS, THE FOUR POWERS CALLED THE QUARTET TO PUT TOGETHER A PEACE AGREEMENT AND SAY TO THE PALESTINIANS AND THE ISRAELIS, “THIS IS THE ONLY WAY TO PEACE, HERE IT IS.”

 

IT’S CALLED THE ROAD MAP FOR PEACE.

 

BY DECEMBER OF THAT YEAR, 2002, THEY HAD PRODUCED THIS DOCUMENT AND IT WAS PRESENTED TO THE PALESTINIANS AND THE ISRAELIS IN THE SPRING OF APRIL 2003.

 

BOTH ISRAEL AND THE PALESTINIANS WERE UNDER TREMENDOUS PRESSURE FROM THE WORLD COMMUNITY.

 

YOU’VE GOT ALL OF THE POWERS OF THE WHOLE WORLD SAYING, “THIS IS WHAT YOU SHOULD DO.”

 

BECAUSE WHAT WAS NOT REPRESENTED BY RUSSIA, THE EUROPEAN UNION AND THE UNITED STATES WAS REPRESENTED BY THE UNITED NATIONS, REPRESENTING ALL THE OTHER NATIONS OF THE WORLD.

 

AND THEY DID PUT THIS AGREEMENT TOGETHER.

 

SO ISRAEL SAID, “WE’LL DO IT WITH SOME RESERVATIONS.”

 

AND THE PALESTINIANS SAID, “YES, WE’LL DO IT, TOO.

 

THERE MAY BE PARTS OF IT THAT WILL BE HARD FOR US TO DO, BUT YES, WE’LL DO IT.”

 

SO, THE AGREEMENT WAS SUPPOSEDLY MADE, BUT IT STILL DIDN’T WORK.

 

THEN, GEORGE W. BUSH CAME TO POWER AND HE, TOO, SAW HIMSELF AS A PEACE MAKER AND HE BECAME THE FIRST PRESIDENT TO ENDORSE A PALESTINIAN STATE.

 

DO YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT I’M SAYING?

 

WE’RE TALKING ABOUT A PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA SAYING TO ISRAEL, “YOU MUST TAKE YOUR PROMISED LAND THAT ALMIGHTY GOD SAYS BELONGS TO YOU,

 

I DON’T AGREE WITH THAT,

 

BUT YOU’RE GOING TO HAVE TO GIVE PART OF THAT TO THE PALESTINIAN PEOPLE.”

 

SO, HE WAS THE FIRST ONE.

 

NOT EVEN BILL CLINTON DARED TO ENDORSE A PALESTINIAN STATE, BECAUSE HE WAS AFRAID THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WOULD NOT STAND FOR IT BECAUSE WE’RE SUCH A BIBLE-BASED PEOPLE, AT LEAST WE USED TO BE.

 

SO, GEORGE BUSH ENDORSES A PALESTINIAN STATE.

 

AND FINALLY, THE LAST TWO YEARS OF HIS ADMINISTRATION, HE DECIDES HE’S GOING TO TRY TO BRING PEACE TO ISRAEL.

 

HE FINALLY CONVENED THE ANNAPOLIS PEACE CONFERENCE IN 2007, HOWEVER, IT WAS TOO LITTLE, TOO LATE.

 

HE FAILED.

 

WHEN PRESIDENT OBAMA WAS CAMPAIGNING FOR OFFICE TO SUCCEED PRESIDENT BUSH, HE SAID, “I WON’T WAIT UNTIL THE LAST YEAR OF MY PRESIDENCY, LIKE GEORGE BUSH AND LIKE BILL CLINTON, TO BRING ABOUT PEACE IN THE MIDDLE EAST, I WILL PUT IT IN THE FIRST YEAR OF MY PRESIDENCY, IT’S SO ABSOLUTELY IMPORTANT.”

 

AND SO FAR, THAT’S WHAT PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS DONE.

 

HE, IMMEDIATELY UPON BEING ELECTED, APPOINTED FORMER SENATOR GEORGE MITCHELL TO BE HIS SPECIAL ENVOY TO THE MIDDLE EAST.

 

THE REASON HE APPOINTED GEORGE MITCHELL WAS BECAUSE HE WAS SUCCESSFUL IN SOLVING ONE OF THE MOST DIFFICULT CONFLICTS IN THE WHOLE WORLD, THE CONFLICT IN NORTHERN IRELAND.

 

GEORGE MITCHELL WENT THERE, GOT AN AGREEMENT, AND THEY’RE LIVING IN PEACE TODAY.

 

PRESIDENT OBAMA SAID, “IF GEORGE MITCHELL CAN DO IT THERE, PERHAPS HE CAN WORK HIS MAGIC IN THE MIDDLE EAST.”

 

BUT IT STILL HASN’T WORKED THERE.

 

NOW, THE QUESTION IS, WILL THERE EVER BE PEACE?

 

THE ANSWER IS YES.

 

IT WILL BE A TEMPORARY PEACE.

 

IT’S PROPHESIED.

 

IT WILL PLACE THE TEMPLE MOUNT IN A SHARING ARRANGEMENT BETWEEN JEW AND MUSLIM.

 

IT WILL BE UNDER INTERNATIONAL CONTROL, PROBABLY UNDER CONTROL OF THE UNITED NATIONS.

 

IT WILL ALLOW ISRAEL TO BUILD HER THIRD TEMPLE, BELIEVE IT OR NOT.

 

AND THIS IS GOING TO HAPPEN VERY QUICKLY NOW.

 

AND IT WILL MARK THE BEGINNING OF THE FINAL SEVEN YEARS TO THE BATTLE OF ARMAGEDDON.

 

LET’S REVIEW JUST A MOMENT WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO EVERY ISRAELI LEADER THAT HAS DISOBEYED GOD AND THAT HAS AGREED TO GIVE AWAY PROMISED LAND.

 

EVERY SINGLE ISRAELI LEADER HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM OFFICE SHORTLY AFTER HE HAS DONE THAT.

 

LET’S LIST THEM QUICKLY.

 

YITZHAK RABIN, OSLO ACCORDS 1993, WITHDREW FROM JERICHO IN 1994, ASSASSINATED IN NOVEMBER OF 1995.

 

SHIMON PERES SUCCEEDED RABIN FOR A FEW MONTHS.

 

IT LOOKED LIKE HE WAS GOING TO BE USHERED BACK IN BY REELECTION.

 

INSTEAD, AT THE LAST MINUTE HE WAS DEFEATED BECAUSE HE WAS CONTINUING TO GIVE AWAY THE PROMISED LAND, EVEN DURING HIS SHORT TENURE.

 

EVERYONE KNEW THAT HE WAS GOING TO COMPLETE THE DEAL.

 

HE WAS ONE OF THE MAIN NEGOTIATORS OF THE OSLO AGREEMENT.

 

SO, HE WAS REMOVED FROM OFFICE AFTER JUST A FEW MONTHS.

 

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU RAN ON KEEPING THE LAND OF ISRAEL, BUT ONCE HE GOT IN AND GOT UNDER THE PRESSURE FROM THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, HE AGREED TO THE WYE-RIVER ACCORDS, TO GIVE AWAY 22% OF THE WEST BANK.

 

SHORTLY THEREAFTER HE WAS VOTED OUT OF OFFICE AND REPLACED BY EHUD BARAK.

 

BARAK THEN TRIED TO RETURN TOTALLY TO 1967 BORDERS AND EVEN AGREED TO GIVE AWAY THE TEMPLE MOUNT, BUT HE WAS THEN REPLACED BY ARIEL SHARON.

 

EVERYBODY THOUGHT ARIEL SHARON WOULDN’T GIVE AN INCH.

 

HOWEVER, HE WITHDREW FROM GAZA IN 2005 AND ACTUALLY FORCED 9,000 JEWS TO LEAVE THEIR HOMES IN AUGUST OF 2005.

 

LATER ON THAT YEAR, IN THE FALL, HE WAS FELLED BY A HORRIBLE STROKE AND HE HAS YET TO RECOVER CONSCIOUSNESS.

 

THEN HIS SUCCESSOR, EHUD OLMERT, TRIED TO GET A PEACE AGREEMENT.

 

HE SAID, “I WAS ALMOST THERE,” BUT HE WAS CHARGED WITH CORRUPTION.

 

HE’S ON TRIAL RIGHT NOW AND WILL POSSIBLY SPEND YEARS IN PRISON FOR THE THINGS HE HAS DONE.

 

SO, EVERY SINGLE ISRAELI LEADER THAT’S TRIED TO GIVE AWAY THE PROMISED LAND HAS RESULTED IN DISASTER.

 

NOW, IN THE NEXT SEGMENT OF UNDERSTANDING THE ENDTIME WE’LL STUDY THE PROPHECY THAT EXPLAINS GOD’S PROPHETIC TIME CLOCK AND THE EVENT THAT TRIGGERS THE FINAL SEVEN YEARS TO THE BATTLE OF ARMAGEDDON.

 

YOU DON’T WANT TO MISS IT.

 

 

PART 2

WHAT AN EXCITING LESSON WE HAVE TODAY, “ISRAEL: GOD’S PROPHETIC TIME CLOCK.”

 

AND WE’RE GOING TO BE LOOKING TODAY AT THE PROPHECY IN THE BIBLE WITH A DATE ON IT.

 

IN THIS SEGMENT OF UNDERSTANDING THE ENDTIME, WE’LL EXPLAIN THE PROPHECY THAT WILL TRIGGER THE FINAL SEVEN YEARS TO ARMAGEDDON AND ALSO WE WILL DESCRIBE THE EVENTS THAT WILL OCCUR DURING THE FINAL SEVEN YEARS.

 

NOW, THIS PROPHECY IS ABSOLUTELY ONE OF THE GREATEST PROPHECIES OF ALL TIME.

 

THIS PROPHECY FORETOLD WHEN THE MESSIAH WOULD COME TO EARTH THE FIRST TIME.

 

IT PROVED THE IDENTITY OF THE MESSIAH.

 

IT FORETOLD THE CRUCIFIXION AND FORETOLD THE DESTRUCTION OF THE CITY OF JERUSALEM AND THE TEMPLE.

 

IT PROPHESIES THE EVENT THAT WILL TRIGGER THE FINAL SEVEN YEARS TO ARMAGEDDON.

 

IT PROVIDES CLUES TO THE IDENTITY OF THE ANTICHRIST AND IT ESTABLISHES THE SEVEN-YEAR TIME LINE OF END-OF-THE-AGE EVENTS.

 

SO, THE STAGE IS SET FOR THE FINAL SEVEN YEARS TO ARMAGEDDON IN OUR WORLD RIGHT NOW.

 

THE ONLY QUESTION IS, “HOW SOON WILL THE FINAL SEVEN YEARS BEGIN?”

 

I’M SURE YOU’RE AS INTERESTED IN THIS AS I AM.

 

SO GOD’S PROPHETIC TIME CLOCK — THE BIBLE PROPHESIES THAT THE WORLD COMMUNITY AND THE ANTICHRIST WILL MAKE A PEACE AGREEMENT WITH ISRAEL.

 

THE AGREEMENT WILL PLACE THE TEMPLE MOUNT UNDER A SHARING ARRANGEMENT AND WILL ALLOW FOR THE BUILDING OF ISRAEL’S THIRD TEMPLE.

 

THERE’S BEEN TWO TEMPLES UP TILL NOW.

 

THIS WILL ALLOW FOR THE BUILDING OF THE THIRD TEMPLE ON THE TEMPLE MOUNT IN THE VERY NEAR FUTURE.

 

THIS PEACE AGREEMENT WILL MARK THE BEGINNING OF THE FINAL SEVEN YEARS TO THE BATTLE OF ARMAGEDDON.

 

NOW, IF THERE’S ANOTHER PEACE AGREEMENT THAT DOESN’T DO THESE THINGS, THEN THAT’S NOT THE ONE THAT MARKS THE BEGINNING OF THE FINAL SEVEN YEARS.

 

THE ANTICHRIST WILL PARTICIPATE IN THIS VERY IMPORTANT AGREEMENT, EVEN THOUGH WE WILL PROBABLY NOT KNOW WHO HE IS, EVEN WHILE HE IS PARTICIPATING IN THE CONCLUSION OF THIS PEACE AGREEMENT BETWEEN ISRAEL AND THE PALESTINIANS.

 

LET’S LOOK NOW AT THE PROPHECY ITSELF.

 

IT’S A 490-YEAR PROPHECY.

 

IT’S GIVEN TO US IN DANIEL 9, VERSE 24 THROUGH 27.

 

LET’S LOOK AT VERSE 24.

 

DANIEL 9:24

 

NOW, WE’RE READING FROM THE NIV VERSION OF THE BIBLE.

 

TO PUT AN END TO SIN, TO ATONE FOR WICKEDNESS, TO BRING IN EVERLASTING RIGHTEOUSNESS, TO SEAL UP VISION AND PROPHECY…

 

SO, WHAT’S THIS TELLING US?

 

70 SEVENS REFER TO 70 SEVEN-YEAR PERIODS OF TIME.

 

I WON’T TAKE THE TIME TO PROVE THAT RIGHT NOW, BUT IT CAN BE PROVEN CONCLUSIVELY.

 

SO, THIS IS TALKING ABOUT 70 SEVEN-YEAR PERIODS OF TIME, OR SEVEN YEARS TIMES 70 IS 490 YEARS.

 

THIS IS A 490-YEAR PROPHECY.

 

THE 490 YEARS BEGINS WITH THE COMMANDMENT TO REBUILD JERUSALEM.

 

WE KNOW JERUSALEM WAS DESTROYED IN 586 B.C.

 

THE PROPHESY WAS GIVEN WHILE DANIEL WAS IN BABYLONIAN CAPTIVITY.

 

SO, THE PROPHECY IS GIVEN.

 

JERUSALEM HAS ALREADY BEEN DESTROYED.

 

THIS PROPHECY BEGINS WITH THE COMMANDMENT TO REBUILD JERUSALEM.

 

HOW DO WE KNOW THAT?

 

WELL, VERSE 25 OF DANIEL 9 TELLS US THAT.

 

LISTEN TO IT.

 

DANIEL 9:25

 

SO, THIS PROPHECY IS GIVEN IN THREE SEGMENTS: 7 SEVENS, OR 49 YEARS AND THEN, 62 SEVENS OR 434 YEARS.

 

NOW, AFTER THAT SOMETHING HAPPENS.

 

SO IT’S 49 YEARS, 434 YEARS, 7 YEARS, A TOTAL OF 490 YEARS THAT THIS PROPHECY IS GIVEN TO US.

 

BUT DIVIDED INTO THREE SEGMENTS.

 

THE PROPHECY BEGINS WITH THE DECREE TO REBUILD JERUSALEM.

 

MOST LIKELY THIS DECREE REFERS TO THE PROPHESIED DECREE OF CYRUS, THE KING OF PERSIA, WHICH OCCURRED AROUND 538 B.C.

 

THE HISTORY AND THE CALENDARS THAT WE HAVE FOR THIS TIME PERIOD ARE VERY UNRELIABLE.

 

HOWEVER, WHEN THIS 490-YEAR TIME PERIOD BEGINS IS NOT REALLY WHAT IS IMPORTANT.

 

WHAT IS IMPORTANT IS WHEN IT WILL END, BECAUSE THAT’S WHEN SOME VERY CRITICAL THINGS TAKE PLACE THAT WE ALL NEED TO UNDERSTAND AND KNOW ABOUT.

 

SO THE 49 YEARS AND THE 434 YEARS END WITH THE CUTTING OFF OF THE MESSIAH BECAUSE IT TELLS US THIS IN VERSE NUMBER 26.

 

DANIEL 9:26

 

AFTER THE SIXTY-TWO ‘SEVENS’,

 

WE’VE HAD THE 7 SEVENS, THE 7 SEVEN-YEAR PERIODS.

 

(NOTE TO TRANSLATOR: INSERT DANIEL 9:26)

 

SO, THIS TELLS US THAT THE PEOPLE OF THE RULER THAT SHALL COME, SPEAKING OF THE ANTICHRIST, WILL DESTROY THE CITY AND THE SANCTUARY.

 

DID THAT HAPPEN?

 

ABSOLUTELY.

 

IN 70 A.D., THE ROMANS DESTROYED JERUSALEM AND THE TEMPLE; BURNED IT TO THE GROUND.

 

THIS PASSAGE TELLS US THAT THE MESSIAH WILL COME, THEN BE CUT OFF AND THEN, THE CITY OF JERUSALEM WILL BE DESTROYED.

 

SO, WHAT IS THIS TELLING US?

 

THIS IS ABSOLUTE PROOF.

 

SINCE WE KNOW THAT THE ROMANS DESTROYED JERUSALEM IN 70 A.D., WE HAVE A SPECIFIC DATE.

 

WE KNOW THAT THE MESSIAH HAD TO COME AND BE CUT OFF BEFORE 70 A.D.

 

THIS IS ABSOLUTE PROOF THAT THE MESSIAH HAD TO COME BEFORE THAT HAPPENED.

 

AND DID HE COME?

 

JESUS WAS THE MESSIAH.

 

HE CAME.

 

HE WAS CUT OFF, JUST LIKE THE SCRIPTURE SAYS AND THEN, THE CITY OF JERUSALEM WAS DESTROYED BY THE ROMANS.

 

THE ANTICHRIST WHEN HE COMES, WILL RULE OVER A REVIVED HOLY ROMAN EMPIRE.

 

NOW, THIS BRINGS US TO A VERY IMPORTANT UNDERSTANDING, AND THAT’S THE UNDERSTANDING OF THE GAP.

 

TWO THINGS WERE TO HAPPEN AFTER THE 483 YEARS.

 

THE MESSIAH WAS TO BE CUT OFF AND JERUSALEM AND THE TEMPLE WERE TO BE DESTROYED.

 

WE KNOW THAT JERUSALEM AND THE TEMPLE WERE DESTROYED IN 70 A.D. AND THAT JESUS WAS CRUCIFIED BETWEEN 26 AND 38 A.D.

 

WE DON’T KNOW FOR SURE THE DATE.

 

SO, WHAT WE LEARN IS THAT THERE ARE BETWEEN 30 AND 40 YEARS BETWEEN THESE TWO EVENTS AND BOTH OF THEM ARE TO OCCUR BETWEEN THE 483 YEARS AND THE FINAL 7 YEARS.

 

SO, THERE’S A GAP HERE.

 

THINGS HAPPEN IN THIS GAP AND THAT’S THE REASON THE PROPHECY WAS GIVEN IN SEGMENTS LIKE THIS.

 

SO, THIS LENGTH OF THE GAP, THOUGH, IS NOT DISCLOSED TO US IN THE PROPHECY.

 

WE DO KNOW TODAY, HOWEVER, THAT THIS GAP IS ABOUT 2000 YEARS.

 

AND WE’LL UNDERSTAND MORE ABOUT THAT AS WE GO ALONG.

 

BUT NOW, LET’S JUMP OVER THE GAP AND LET’S GET TO THE FINAL SEVEN YEARS.

 

VERSE 27.

 

DANIEL 9:27

 

WHAT DOES ALL THIS MEAN?

 

WE HAVE TO KNOW SEVERAL THINGS ABOUT VERSE 27.

 

NUMBER ONE, WHO IS THIS “HE” THAT WILL CONFIRM THE COVENANT?

 

NUMBER TWO, WHAT IS THE COVENANT?

 

NUMBER THREE, WHAT IS THE CONFIRMATION OF THE COVENANT?

 

NUMBER FOUR, WHAT ARE THESE SACRIFICES THAT HE’S GOING TO PUT AN END TO?

 

AND WHAT IS THIS EVENT CALLED,”THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION”?

 

THIS IS A LOT OF INFORMATION IN THIS ONE SMALL VERSE. BUT THESE ARE THE THINGS THAT WILL HAPPEN DURING THIS LAST SEVEN-YEAR PERIOD.

 

SO, LET’S ANSWER THESE QUESTIONS.

 

FIRST OF ALL, WHO IS HE?

 

HE WILL CONFIRM THE COVENANT.

 

THIS IS AN EASY QUESTION TO ANSWER BECAUSE THE “HE” DOES THREE THINGS.

 

HE CONFIRMS THE COVENANT, HE CAUSES THE SACRIFICE AND OBLATION TO STOP AND HE PLACES THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION.

 

IF YOU GO TWO CHAPTERS LATER IN DANIEL, CHAPTER NUMBER 11, IT SAYS IN VERSE 21 AND 22 THAT THE ANTICHRIST WILL BE THE PRINCE OF THE COVENANT.

 

SO, THE ANTICHRIST CONFIRMS THE COVENANT.

 

IN VERSE 31, IT SAYS, THE ANTICHRIST AND HIS PARTNERS WILL CAUSE THE SACRIFICE AND THE OBLATION TO CEASE.

 

AND THEN IT SAYS, AND FOR THE OVER SPREADING OF ABOMINATIONS, HE MAKES IT DESOLATE.

 

SO, THE ANTICHRIST CONFIRMS THE COVENANT, THE ANTICHRIST CAUSES THE SACRIFICE AND OBLATION TO STOP AND THE ANTICHRIST PLACES THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION.

 

IT’S EASY.

 

WE KNOW THE “HE” IS THE ANTICHRIST.

 

QUESTION NUMBER TWO, WHAT IS THE COVENANT?

 

VERSE NUMBERS 18 OF GENESIS 15. ALL THE WAY BACK IN THE FIRST BOOK OF THE BIBLE, IT STATES THERE.

 

GENESIS 15:18

 

GOD SAID TO ABRAHAM, “I WILL MAKE A COVENANT WITH YOU THAT YOUR SEED AFTER THAT WILL HAVE THIS LAND.”

 

IT’S A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROMISED LAND.

 

AND THAT’S THE ABRAHAM COVENANT, THAT THE NATION OF ISRAEL SHOULD HAVE A HOMELAND IN THE LAND OF ISRAEL.

 

SO, THEN, IF THAT’S THE COVENANT, WHAT WILL THE CONFIRMATION OF THE COVENANT BE WHICH STARTS THIS FINAL SEVEN YEAR PERIOD?

 

WELL, THE BIBLE TEACHES US WHEN THE MIDDLE EAST PEACE AGREEMENT IS SIGNED, THE ANTICHRIST AND THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY WILL CONFIRM ISRAEL’S RIGHT TO EXIST IN THE HOLY LAND.

 

THIS WILL BE THE CONFIRMATION OF ISRAEL’S RIGHT TO EXIST THERE.

 

PRESENTLY, ISRAEL’S ENEMIES DENY THAT SHE HAS A RIGHT TO A HOMELAND THERE.

 

MOST OF THE ARAB COUNTRIES HAVE YET TO RECOGNIZE ISRAEL’S RIGHT TO EXIST.

 

WHEN THE CONFIRMATION OF THE COVENANT TAKES PLACE, THE FINAL SEVEN YEARS TO ARMAGEDDON AND THE SECOND COMING WILL BEGIN.

 

NOW, THAT’S THE REASON WE CALL THIS A PROPHECY WITH A DATE ON IT.

 

WHAT SACRIFICES ARE WE TALKING ABOUT?

 

THE MIDDLE EAST PEACE AGREEMENT WILL PLACE THE TEMPLE MOUNT UNDER A SHARING ARRANGEMENT BETWEEN MUSLIM AND JEWS.

 

THIS IS TOLD TO US IN REVELATION CHAPTER 11, VERSE 1 AND 2.

 

JOHN WAS TOLD TO MEASURE THE TEMPLE.

 

DON’T MEASURE THE OUTER COURT, THAT WILL BE TRODDEN DOWN BY THE GENTILES.

 

THIS IS A PICTURE OF THE TEMPLE MOUNT AND THE SHARING ARRANGEMENT.

 

ISRAEL WILL BE ALLOWED TO BUILD HER TEMPLE.

 

IT SAYS THERE — JOHN WAS TOLD TO MEASURE THE TEMPLE.

 

HE CAN’T MEASURE THE TEMPLE IF THERE IS NONE.

 

LATER ON WE’RE GOING TO SEE THAT THE ANTICHRIST WILL STAND IN THE TEMPLE.

 

YOU CAN’T STAND IN THE TEMPLE IF THERE IS NONE.

 

SO, A TEMPLE IS GOING TO BE

 

BUILT ON THE TEMPLE MOUNT.

 

WHEN THE TEMPLE IS COMPLETED, ANIMAL SACRIFICES WILL BE OFFERED JUST LIKE THEY WERE IN THE OLD TESTAMENT.

 

NOW, THESE ARE THE SACRIFICES THAT THE ANTICHRIST WILL STOP, PROBABLY AT THE URGING OF THE ANIMAL RIGHTS ACTIVISTS.

 

SO, HE’LL MAKE THE SACRIFICES AND THE OBLATION TO CEASE.

 

AND FINALLY, IT SAYS THAT HE WILL PLACE THE ABOMINATION THAT MAKES DESOLATE.

 

NOW, THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION SHOWS UP MANY TIMES IN SCRIPTURE.

 

ONE PLACE IS WHEN JESUS WAS TEACHING ABOUT PROPHECY IN MATTHEW 24, VERSE 15.

 

LISTEN TO WHAT JESUS SAID,

 

MATTHEW 24:15

 

WE LEARN SOMETHING VERY IMPORTANT.

 

THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION STANDS IN THE HOLY PLACE.

 

THE HOLY PLACE IS IN THE TEMPLE, OR AT LEAST ON THE TEMPLE MOUNT.

 

SO, THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION IS WHEN THE ANTICHRIST WILL STAND IN THE TEMPLE PROCLAIMING TO BE GOD.

 

THE APOSTLE PAUL DESCRIBED THIS IN MORE DETAIL IN II THESSALONIANS 2,VERSE 3 AND 4.

 

HE SAID.

 

II THESSALONIANS 2:3-4

 

THE DAY WILL NOT COME UNTIL THE MAN OF SIN, THE SON OF PERDITION IS REVEALED AND HE WILL ACTUALLY SIT IN THE TEMPLE OF GOD CLAIMING TO BE GOD.

 

WHERE DOES THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION OCCUR?

 

IN THE TEMPLE.

 

JESUS CHRIST SAID IT.

 

THIS IS DESCRIBING AN EVENT AND IT IS ALSO THE EVENT THAT WILL HAPPEN THREE AND A HALF YEARS BEFORE THE BATTLE OF ARMAGEDDON.

 

SO, THE ANTICHRIST WILL STAND ON THE TEMPLE MOUNT CLAIMING TO BE GOD.

 

HOW WILL HE SAY THAT?

 

I DON’T KNOW.

 

WHETHER HE WILL SAY, “I’M THE ULTIMATE AUTHORITY HERE,” OR WHAT HE WILL SAY, I CAN’T TELL YOU.

 

BUT WHEN IT HAPPENS, WE’LL RECOGNIZE IT.

 

AND WHEN HE DOES THIS, THAT’S CALLED THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION.

 

BECAUSE ALMIGHTY GOD SAID, 37 TIMES IN THE OLD TESTAMENT, “I WILL PUT MY NAME ON THE TEMPLE MOUNT.”

 

WELL, THAT’S THE REASON THE ANTICHRIST, WHO BY THAT TIME, WILL PROBABLY BE POSSESSED BY SATAN, IS GOING TO STAND THERE AND SAY, “I’M THE ULTIMATE AUTHORITY HERE.”

 

AND THAT WILL BE THE EVENT CALLED THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION.

 

OKAY, LET’S REVIEW THAT.

 

THE ANTICHRIST, LET’S LOOK AT DANIEL 9:27.

 

DANIEL 9:27

 

HE WILL PLACE THE ABOMINATION THAT MAKES DESOLATE.

 

SO, HE IS THE ANTICHRIST.

 

HE WILL CONFIRM ISRAEL’S RIGHT TO EXIST IN THE HOLY LAND FOR A SEVEN-YEAR PERIOD.

 

IN THE MIDDLE OF THIS SEVEN-YEAR PERIOD, THE ANTICHRIST WILL STOP THE TEMPLE SACRIFICES AND WILL, IN SOME WAY, CLAIM TO BE GOD.

 

THAT’S THE OVERVIEW.

 

NOW, LET’S TAKE A CLOSER LOOK.

 

TWO EVENTS OF THE FINAL SEVEN YEARS.

 

WE’VE PUT THIS ON A DIAGRAM FOR YOU, ON A TIME LINE, BECAUSE WE WANT EVERYONE TO UNDERSTAND BECAUSE YOU’RE GETTING READY TO EXPERIENCE THESE THINGS.

 

THESE THINGS ARE GOING TO UNFOLD RIGHT IN OUR NEWS, RIGHT BEFORE OUR EYES, IN THE VERY NEAR FUTURE.

 

SOME OF THESE EVENTS ARE ALREADY IN MOTION RIGHT NOW.

 

SO, THE FINAL SEVEN YEARS BEGINS WITH THE CONFIRMATION OF THE COVENANT.

 

ONE MORE TIME, WHAT IS THAT?

 

THAT’S WHEN THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY, ISRAEL AND THE PALESTINIANS AGREE THAT ISRAEL HAS A RIGHT TO THEIR HOMELAND, CONFIRMING THE ABRAHAM COVENANT THAT GOD MADE WITH ABRAHAM WAY BACK IN GENESIS 15:18.

 

SO, THE CONFIRMATION OF THE COVENANT IS THE PROPHECY WITH A DATE ON IT.

 

WHEN THAT OCCURS THERE ARE SEVEN YEARS TO ARMAGEDDON, AND SEVEN YEARS TO THE SECOND COMING OF JESUS CHRIST.

 

NOW, ONCE THIS HAPPENS, THE WORLD GOVERNMENTAL SYSTEM WILL GAIN POWER VERY RAPIDLY.

 

IT WON’T BE IN TOTAL CONTROL, YET.

 

WE ALREADY SEE, IN THE PROCESS OF GLOBALIZATION, THAT ONE-WORLD GOVERNMENT IS GAINING POWER.

 

WE ALREADY HAVE A WORLD COURT, A WORLD BANK, A WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION, A WORLD TRADE ORGANIZATION.

 

SO, THERE ARE A LOT OF GLOBAL INSTITUTIONS BEING SET UP RIGHT NOW.

 

ALL OF THAT WILL ESCALATE RAPIDLY WHEN THE FINAL SEVEN YEARS BEGINS AND WHEN THE CONFIRMATION OF THE COVENANT TAKES PLACE.

 

ONCE THOSE THINGS OCCUR, WE KNOW THE TEMPLE MOUNT WILL BE PLACED UNDER A SHARING ARRANGEMENT, AS WE HAVE SAID PREVIOUSLY.

 

THE TEMPLE WILL BE REBUILT.

 

THE TEMPLE HAS TO BE COMPLETED BEFORE THE MIDWAY POINT.

 

THE BIBLE IS VERY CLEAR THAT AT THE MIDWAY POINT, THE ANTICHRIST WILL SIT IN THE TEMPLE.

 

YOU CAN’T SIT IN THE TEMPLE IF THERE IS NONE.

 

IT APPEARS THAT THIS TEMPLE WILL BE REBUILT DURING THE FIRST THREE AND A HALF YEARS OF THE PROPHESIED FINAL SEVEN YEARS.

 

ONCE THE TEMPLE IS BUILT, ANIMAL SACRIFICES WILL BE RESUMED AND THAT’S GOING TO CAUSE A LOT OF PROBLEMS BECAUSE THERE ARE SO MANY PEOPLE THAT WILL OBJECT TO A MORNING SACRIFICE, AND AN EVENING SACRIFICE.

 

THE ANIMAL RIGHTS ACTIVISTS ARE ABSOLUTELY GOING TO GO CRAZY OVER THIS.

 

AND CONSEQUENTLY THE ANTICHRIST IS GOING TO SAY, “OKAY, OKAY.”

 

AND THAT’S GOING TO STOP THE SACRIFICES.

 

THAT’S ALSO GOING TO CAUSE HIM TO DO SOMETHING ELSE.

 

HE WILL PLACE THE ABOMINATION THAT MAKETH DESOLATE.

 

IT WILL PROBABLY GO SOMETHING LIKE THIS.

 

THE ANTICHRIST WILL PROBABLY SAY, “ALL RIGHT, IT’S BEEN RUMORED THAT I MIGHT BE THE MESSIAH.

 

I BROUGHT PEACE AND SECURITY TO ISRAEL.

 

I’VE OPENED THE DOOR FOR YOU TO BUILD YOUR TEMPLE.

 

YOU THINK THAT’S WHAT THE MESSIAH WILL DO.

 

I HAVE BEEN CROSS-EXAMINED, ‘ARE YOU THE MESSIAH?’

 

I HAVE POSTPONED TELLING YOU UNTIL NOW, BUT THIS EXPLAINS WHY WE STOPPED THE SACRIFICES.

 

YOU DON’T NEED THEM ANYMORE.

 

I’M THE MESSIAH.”

 

HE WILL STAND ON THE TEMPLE MOUNT, PROBABLY CLAIMING TO BE THE MESSIAH TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE, THE RETURN OF CHRIST TO THE CHRISTIANS, THE TWELFTH IMAM TO THE MUSLIMS, THE FIFTH BUDDHA TO THE BUDDHISTS AND EVERYBODY WHO IS EXPECTING SOME KIND OF A GREAT TEACHER OR A SAVIOR TO COME, HE WILL CLAIM TO BE ALL THINGS TO ALL MEN.

 

THAT’S WHEN WE WILL KNOW WHO THE ANTICHRIST IS.

 

IT SAYS, “THEN SHALL THE ANTICHRIST BE REVEALED.”

 

AND IT’S ABOUT THIS SAME TIME, THAT HIS RELIGIOUS PARTNER, THE FALSE PROPHET, WILL PULL DOWN FIRE FROM HEAVEN.

 

NOW, WE DON’T KNOW THAT TIME FOR SURE, BUT THE BIBLE SAYS THAT THE FALSE PROPHET WILL PULL DOWN FIRE FROM HEAVEN IN THE SIGHT OF MEN AND THE AWESOMENESS OF THIS MIRACLE, HE WILL USE HIS INFLUENCE TO TELL THE WORLD, YOU MUST FOLLOW THE ANTICHRIST.

 

IT WILL BE AN ALLIANCE BETWEEN THE POLITICAL LEADER OF THE WORLD AND THE SPIRITUAL LEADER OF THE WORLD, BETWEEN THE ANTICHRIST AND THE FALSE PROPHET.

 

THOSE THINGS HAPPEN AROUND THE HALFWAY POINT.

 

AND THE ANTICHRIST, CLAIMING TO BE GOD, WILL HAPPEN EXACTLY AT THE HALFWAY POINT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE SEVEN-YEAR PERIOD.

 

IT’S CALLED THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION.

 

NOW, WHEN THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION HAPPENS, THE JEWS LIVING IN JUDEA WILL HAVE TO RUN FOR THEIR LIFE.

 

JESUS SAID THAT.

 

WHEN YOU SEE THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION, THEN THOSE THAT LIVE IN JUDEA, YOU MUST RUN FOR YOUR LIFE BECAUSE THEN SHALL BE GREAT TRIBULATION SUCH AS NEVER HAS BEEN BEFORE, NOR EVER AGAIN SHALL BE.

 

IT WILL BE A TIME OF TREMENDOUS RELIGIOUS AND POLITICAL PERSECUTION AGAINST ALL THOSE THAT WILL NOT BOW THE KNEE TO THE ANTICHRIST, HIS NEW-WORLD ORDER AND HIS NEW-WORLD RELIGIOUS SYSTEM.

 

NOW, WHILE THE ANTICHRIST AND THE FALSE PROPHET ARE BEGINNING THEIR MINISTRIES, TWO WITNESSES WILL BEGIN THEIR MINISTRIES.

 

THESE ARE FROM GOD.

 

WHILE THE ANTICHRIST AND THE FALSE PROPHET ARE PREACHING SATAN’S MESSAGE, THE TWO WITNESSES WILL COME ALONG AND THEY WILL PREACH WHAT GOD HAS GIVEN THEM TO PREACH.

 

THIS WILL RESULT IN A GREAT REVIVAL IN ISRAEL, ESPECIALLY AMONG THE JEWS.

 

MOST OF ISRAEL WILL NOT TURN TO JESUS CHRIST YET, BUT A PORTION OF THEM WILL, ACCORDING TO ZECHARIAH, CHAPTER 12, VERSE NUMBER 7.

 

IT SAYS THAT, “GOD WILL SAVE THE TENTS OF JUDAH FIRST.”

 

AND THIS REVIVAL WILL BE ONGOING, EVEN WHILE THE GREAT TRIBULATION IS ONGOING.

 

YOU CAN SEE HERE ON OUR TIME LINE THAT DURING THIS FINAL THREE AND A HALF YEARS IS WHEN THE MARK OF THE BEAST WILL BE IMPLEMENTED AND IT WILL BECOME EVER MORE CONTROLLING DURING THIS FINAL THREE AND ONE HALF YEARS.

 

THE ANTICHRIST WILL WANT TO CONTROL EVERY PERSON ON EARTH.

 

THE BIBLE SAYS, IN ORDER TO GET YOUR MARK, WHICH WILL BE NEEDED TO PARTICIPATE IN THE ECONOMY, YOU’LL HAVE TO DO SOMETHING YOU CAN NEVER DO, YOU’LL HAVE TO WORSHIP THE ANTICHRIST AND PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO HIS ONE-WORLD GOVERNMENT.

 

THE BIBLE SAYS, ANYBODY THAT DOES THIS WILL BE FOREVER DAMNED.

 

SO, WE CANNOT DO THAT.

 

AND YET, YOU’RE GOING TO HAVE TO DO IT TO PARTICIPATE IN THE ECONOMY.

 

THAT’S THE REASON THIS TIME IS CALLED THE GREAT TRIBULATION.

 

ONCE WE GET THROUGH THESE THREE AND A HALF YEARS, HOWEVER, WE COME TO THE END OF THE FINAL SEVEN YEARS.

 

AT THE END OF THE FINAL SEVEN YEARS, THE WORLD COMMUNITY, UNDOUBTEDLY THE UNITED NATIONS, A WORLD PEACE-KEEPING FORCE, WILL COME DOWN TO INVADE ISRAEL UNDER SOME PREMISE.

 

WILL IT BE BECAUSE ISRAEL REFUSES TO YIELD HER NUCLEAR WEAPONS, WE DON’T KNOW EXACTLY WHAT THE CHARGE WILL BE.

 

THERE WILL BE A RESOLUTION PASSED AGAINST ISRAEL, AND THE WORLD COMMUNITY WILL INVADE ISRAEL. THE BIBLE SAYS IN ZECHARIAH 14, VERSE 2, “AND ALL NATIONS SHALL COME AGAINST JERUSALEM TO BATTLE.”

 

THAT WILL TRIGGER THE BATTLE OF ARMAGEDDON AND THAT ALSO WILL TRIGGER THE SECOND COMING OF JESUS CHRIST.

 

AT THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST, THE ANTICHRIST AND THE FALSE PROPHET WILL BE DESTROYED AND THE GOVERNMENTS OF MEN WILL BE REMOVED AND WE’RE GOING TO CROWN JESUS CHRIST KING OF KINGS AND THE LORD OF LORDS.

 

SO, WE HAVE TO ASK THIS QUESTION, HOW CLOSE ARE WE RIGHT NOW?

 

THERE ARE MANY SIGNS THAT THE SEVEN YEARS COULD BEGIN VERY SOON.

 

WE KNOW THAT THE MIDDLE EAST PEACE AGREEMENT WILL DO THREE THINGS.

 

IT WILL ESTABLISH THE FINAL BORDERS OF ISRAEL, IT WILL PLACE THE TEMPLE MOUNT UNDER A SHARING ARRANGEMENT AND UNDER INTERNATIONAL AUTHORITY AND IT WILL ALLOW THE BUILDING OF ISRAEL’S THIRD TEMPLE.

 

THE MIDDLE EAST PEACE IS PRESENTLY A HIGH PRIORITY OF THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY.

 

THEY WANT TO GET THIS DONE.

 

FURTHERMORE, IN RECENT NEGOTIATIONS, THE NEGOTIATORS HAVE INDICATED THAT THE AGREED BORDERS ARE ACHIEVABLE, WE CAN GET THIS DONE.

 

HOWEVER, THE TEMPLE MOUNT IS A TROUBLESOME ISSUE.

 

BOTH PRESIDENTS CLINTON AND OBAMA HAVE AGREED THE ONLY ANSWER IS TO PUT THE TEMPLE MOUNT UNDER A SHARING ARRANGEMENT, JUST LIKE THE BIBLE SAYS.

 

AND FURTHERMORE, PREPARATIONS HAVE NOW BEEN MADE TO REBUILD THE TEMPLE.

 

ALL THE FURNITURE IS READY, EVEN AS I SPEAK WITH YOU RIGHT NOW.

 

OKAY, THE MOST LIKELY SCENARIO THEN.

 

WORLD WAR III WILL HAPPEN, WE HAVEN’T TALKED ABOUT THAT.

 

THAT APPARENTLY HAPPENS JUST BEFORE THE FINAL SEVEN YEARS BEGINS.

 

THE BIBLE TALKS ABOUT THIS WAR THAT WILL KILL ONE-THIRD OF MANKIND, TWO BILLION PEOPLE.

 

NOW, IN THE AFTERMATH OF THIS WAR, IT’S GOING TO PRODUCE AN UNPRECEDENTED CRY FOR PEACE.

 

WE’VE GOT TO HAVE PEACE.

 

WHEN TWO BILLION PEOPLE LIE DEAD, THE DEMAND FOR PEACE WILL BE ABSOLUTELY DEAFENING AND THIS WILL DRIVE THE WORLD COMMUNITY, ISRAEL AND THE PALESTINIANS INTO THIS PROPHESIED PEACE AGREEMENT.

 

THE THIRD TEMPLE WILL THEN BE BUILT.

 

THE RELIGIOUS FERVOR THAT WILL HAPPEN AFTER TWO BILLION DIE, WILL CAUSE THE WORLD TO SAY, “LET THEM REBUILD THEIR TEMPLE.

 

MAYBE THIS WILL GIVE US FAVOR WITH GOD.”

 

OKAY, LET’S LOOK IT OVER ONE MORE TIME.

 

GOD’S PROPHETIC TIME CLOCK. THE PROPHECY WITH A DATE ON IT.

 

THE WORLD COMMUNITY AND THE ANTICHRIST WILL MAKE A PEACE AGREEMENT WITH ISRAEL.

 

THEY’RE TRYING TO DO IT NOW.

 

THIS AGREEMENT WILL PLACE THE TEMPLE MOUNT UNDER A SHARING ARRANGEMENT.

 

THAT’S ALREADY BEEN PROPOSED.

 

AND THE AGREEMENT WILL ALLOW THE BUILDING OF ISRAEL’S THIRD TEMPLE ON THE TEMPLE MOUNT.

 

WHEN I WAS IN ISRAEL RECENTLY I SAW THE SCALE MODEL.

 

I WENT THROUGH IT.

 

I SAW THE BRAZEN ALTAR.

 

I SAW THE LAVER.

 

I SAW THE CANDLESTICK.

 

EVERYTHING IS PREPARED FOR THIS TO HAPPEN RIGHT NOW.

 

JUST AHEAD OF US THE FINAL SEVEN YEARS WILL BEGIN.

 

I HOPE YOU ALL ARE READY FOR THIS.

 

THIS IS GOING TO BE A FABULOUS EVENT.

One Response to “Israel God’s Prophetic Timeclock”

  1. Steven E Harper

    Irvin Baxter / Doug Norvell,
    Thanks for efforts and time that you and your team have put into Lesson 6 A&B “Israel: God’s Prophetic Timeclock”.
    You spoke about the “gap of time” being about 2,000 years between the 1st/2nd segment of 483 years and the 3rd segment of the “Final” 7 years, noting that we will understand more about that as we go along. Can you share any more information about how the gap of 2,000 years is determined?
    Thanks and regards,
    Steven Harper
