First, according to the Bible, Turkey (Togarmah of the north quarters; Ezek. 38:6) and Russia (the land of Magog; Ezek. 38:2) will be allies, not enemies, in the latter days and latter years (Ezek. 38:8, 16).
But for many years, Turkey has been on the wrong side by being an ally of the West and an enemy of Russia.
However, on July 8, 2018, America’s ambassador to NATO warned that Russia is trying to draw away Turkey (and it is working).
Second, according to the Bible, Iran (Persia; Ezek. 38:5) and others will attack Israel in the latter days and latter years.
Iran and others may strike Israel first, or they may do it as retaliation for Israel attacking Iran.
Anyway, on July 13, 2018, it was reported that the U.S. and Israel have set up a joint U.S.-Israeli task force called “Project Iran” to coordinate and implement a potential attack on Iran.
“Project Iran” will oversee four Command Groups: one will focus on nuclear targets in Iran; a second will focus on missile storage and launch sites in Iran; a third will focus on Iranian targets in other nations; and the fourth will focus on attacking Iran’s economy.
Third, according to the Bible, the Antichrist will come out of the EU (Dan. 9:26) and Satan will empower him to head up a one-world government during the Tribulation Period (Rev. 13:3-7).
On July 16, 2018, Pres. Trump and Pres. Vladimir Putin met; and it has been reported that they vowed to destroy the New World Order (world government), and the EU quickly urged them not to.
Opposing the coming satanic one-world government is a good thing, but they will fail.
Fourth, according to the Bible, the False Prophet will head up a global religion and conspire with ten political leaders (Ten kings) to enrich themselves, persecute and kill those who become believers during that time (Rev. 17:1-6).
A writer named Baxter Dmitry recently reported that a Bishop that lives at the Vatican (Athanasius Schneider) told a newspaper (La Repubblica, date not given, but around July 10, 2018) that the Vatican has been infiltrated with globalist leaders that are determined to eradicate Christianity in Europe and the West.
According to Bishop Schneider, “One of their key tactics involves flooding European countries with migrants in order to dilute the Christian base and radically change national culture and identity.”
The article said Pope Francis is one of those leaders, and Bishop Schneider suggested that the globalists at the Vatican are being paid by George Soros.
Pope Francis and the religious globalists at the Vatican are conspiring with New World Political leaders to establish an antichrist world religion.
Fifth, according to the Bible, the Antichrist and False Prophet will be able to track all buying and selling during the Tribulation Period (Rev. 13:15-18).
On July 14, 2018, it was reported that several Baseball stadiums have started using fingerprint scans to allow visitors to pass through security faster.
Fans can pay for technology that allows them to enter the stadium by scanning their fingertips.
In the future, a face scan will get them in.
Along this same line, China expects to have facial recognition software soon that can recognize any face, anywhere, anytime.
Sixth, according to the Bible, the Jews will rebuild the Jewish Temple and resume the animal sacrifices before the middle of the Tribulation Period (Dan. 9:27).
On July 3, 2018, Prime Min. Netanyahu relaxed some of the rules regulating visits by government officials to the Temple Mount.
The number of Jews visiting the Temple Mount is small but growing.
The desire to rebuild the Temple and the pressure to do so is picking up steam.
