When Jesus said that "wars and rumors of wars" would be a sign of the end times, He was referring to specific, biblical prophesies. These events include two wars, which will occur shortly before the rapture of the Church. It is important that you know what these wars look like, and how they form the framework of a decoy-Tribulation, which will set the stage for the rise of the Antichrist. You can see the nations lining up for these wars today, and the results are prophesied in God's Word!
This decoy “Tribulation” is not the Tribulation of the book of Revelation, but a reinterpretation of these two major Old Testament, prophetic wars. Satan will attempt to make the world believe they are going through the Tribulation, in an effort to discredit the pre-tribulation rapture, and to prepare the world to welcome the Antichrist, as a Savior!
What is the timing of the rapture in relation to the end times events? While we cannot set a date or an hour, we can certainly see the signs of imminent rapture! The bible does not leave us ignorant, but tells us the signs to look for!
The bible indicates that the ancestry of the Antichrist will be from the Arab tribe founded by Jacob's brother, Esau. You will see which modern nation this tribe is from, and how its capital city is spoken of in Revelation 18. You will also see the biblical evidence against this nation.
Good news for Catholics; The Antichrist will not come from Rome!
Bad news for Catholics; Rome will be destroyed before the beginning of the Tribulation!
What is the fate of the city of Rome? You will see that this city is the center of an elaborate counterfeit that Satan has been working on for millennia! Rome is not the city of either Revelation 17, or 18, but will be used to deflect attention away from the real Babylon, and the real Antichrist!
The Antichrist, an Arab, will use his opposition to polygamy as a means of convincing the “Christian” west that he is one of them! This is not speculation, but can actually be found through careful study of Scripture. This is a major, early sign of the Antichrist, which many will miss!
