Terrorists will not overcome the world (as many fear) but will be defeated. The war on terrorism is actually a catalyst moving us toward the establishment of a one-world regime seeking dominance over every person on this planet. A global coalition, eventually led by the prophesied Antichrist, will ultimately defeat terrorism. Scripture reveals that no human force will be able to wage war against the Antichrist and prevail. He will be given temporary authority over every tribe, people, language and nation.
The Antichrist will defeat and subdue the enemies of Israel in a pretense to be the Messiah. A peace treaty signed with Israel will, three-and-a-half years later, be broken as the rebuilt Temple in Jerusalem is desecrated by the Antichrist. A holocaust of unparalleled proportions and a reign of horrific terror will commence making the heinous attacks and murders of today’s terrorists seem mild in comparison. A global bloodbath of Jews and believers in Jesus as Messiah will exceed anything the world has ever experienced.
The unveiling of the apostate church (“Mystery, Babylon the Great” of Revelation 17 and 18) is on the near horizon. This spiritual prostitute will wield great political power, limitless prosperity and unbounded perversion. In cahoots with the Antichrist, this apostate church will persecute and martyr anyone who is faithful to God. Ironically however, the Antichrist will throw his former ally, the apostate church, off his back and unleash horrible devastation on her.
Near the end of the Tribulation period, the Antichrist and his cohorts will gather at Armageddon with satanically inspired plans to finally annihilate Israel. Their futile mobilization will be quickly terminated with the awesome Second Coming of Jesus Christ. Jesus’ spoken word is all it will take to defeat the Antichrist, the False Prophet and the armies of the world aligned with them.
Christ will then establish His Millennial Kingdom as He rules and reigns over this entire planet from His throne in Jerusalem. The earth will be filled with the knowledge of the Lord, and the peace promised at the time of Christ’s birth will finally be realized. True believers in Jesus Christ will rule and reign with Him throughout the Millennium and for all Eternity.
