Terry James, Nearing Midnight
Terry’s website is RaptureReady.com
Terry mentioned the significance of the Dome of the Rock, playing a role in the rebuilding of the Jewish temple. Matthew 24 (The Olivet Discourse) was mentioned as a parallel passage to Revelation 6:1-8 (The Four Horsemen Of The Apocalypse).
Terry’s main message was on the signs of end times apocalyptic events. The stage is setting, and coming close to prophetic fulfillment:
1)Replacement Theology. Israel is becoming more and more marginalized. Nations and people are rapidly becoming anti sematic. There is a hatred growing towards Israel throughout the world. Many Christians believe the church has replaced the nation of Israel, and God has no more plan with this nation. Daniel 9 and Romans 11 refute this mindset.
2)Moral Depravity: School prayer was banned in 1962, and in 1963 the Bible was banned in schools. This is the year John F. Kennedy was assassinated on November 22, 1963. Martin Luther King was murdered in 1967, and Robert F. Kennedy was killed in 1968. This is the time that the hippie movement became widespread, encouraging free love and drugs. It started to become “as the days of Noah.” Europe has totally left the Bible and now Islam has taken over Europe. We have become as the days of Lot/Sodom and Gomorrah. Now homosexuals are taking control of our nation and demanding that everyone recognize them as a viable alternative for life style.
3)End Times Conflict: Is Vladimir Putin of Russia the one to usher in the great conflict of Gog and Magog mentioned in Ezeliel 38 and 39? The Old Testament nation of Persia is modern day Iran. Will Iran soon initiate hostilities with Israel?
4)The New World Order (NWO). Their current goal is to bring America down and take our freedoms away. Their desire is for all nations to be the same, with absolute governmental control over everyone.
5)The Harlot Church Arises. This church will compromise with both Islam and Catholicism. Emerging Church leaders are currently observed creating common ground with both. There is a hatred for Israel. The Bible says that in the last days Israel would become a burdensome stone to the nations.
Zechariah 12:1-3 The burden of the word of the Lord for Israel, saith the Lord, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him.
Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem.
And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.
