The Rise of Unbelief!

The last several decades have witnessed a remarkable emergence and growth of forces hostile to biblical truths and Christian beliefs—especially among more affluent, educated members of society. While some view this change as the inevitable result of social and intellectual progress, Bible prophecies have long foretold that this would be a sign that the end of the age and the return of Jesus Christ are near. These ancient prophecies are coming alive in our modern societies today!

The Demise of the West

What lies just ahead for the once-prosperous Western nations that have dominated the world for the last five centuries? Why is the influence of the United States in the world declining? Why has once-powerful Britain needed to struggle to remain united? What has happened to the glory of France? Why has immigration changed the face of Canada? Why are the nations of Australia and New Zealand challenged by rising Asian powers? Why are Western nations that once served as models of freedom, prosperity and morality plagued by growing internal strife and falling prestige on the world stage? Few now realize that Western decline was predicted long ago in Bible prophecies that are coming alive today!

Deutschland über Alles!

While world attention has focused on the civil war in Ukraine, the armed struggle between Israelis and Hamas in Gaza, the declaration of an Islamic Caliphate in Syria-Iraq and the expansive actions of China in the South China Sea, prophetically significant events are occurring in Europe.

Coming Plagues: The Pale Horse

Bible prophecies have long stated that just before the return of Jesus Christ, a series of terrible events—portrayed as the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse—will sweep over the earth. These coming calamities will include: increasing reports of wars, famines, natural disasters and disease epidemics. The “fourth horseman” is named Death and rides a pale horse. The Four Horsemen will ravage one quarter of the earth’s population by violence, hunger and “beasts of the earth”—including viruses and bacteria that spread disease (Revelation 6:8). The Scriptures indicate these end-time pestilences will trigger devastating disease epidemics that will claim millions of lives. While public health disasters of this magnitude may seem far-fetched in the light of modern medical technology, warnings of deadly epidemics on a global scale are becoming more frequent—indicating that ancient Bible prophecies are coming alive right now!

The Ecumenical Delusion

Throughout a history of nearly 2,000 years, Christendom has experienced various major schisms and spawned thousands of schismatic sects. Yet serious efforts are now underway to heal the divisions and bring the fragmented pieces back together. While this appears to be a noble, and even godly goal, few today realize that we are watching ancient Bible prophecies come alive—which will shock and surprise a misguided world!
