Dr. Gary Frazier ~ It Could Happen Tomorrow
Nine Future Events That Will Change The World:
Introduction: Israel is the super sign that we are in the last days. We are the terminal generation. We are the generation that will usher in the coming of Jesus. The birth pangs that Jesus described in Matthew 24 are happening in greater intensity, and then we will be gone (rapture), followed by the Great Tribulation period, and finally the glorious appearing of the Lord Jesus Christ will occur. Our passion should be to teach what the Word of God says about these things. The pre tribulation rapture motivates us to live for Christ. Watching for Jesus is one of the greatest motivational teachings in the Word of God. Every day may be our last on the planet earth!
1)The Rapture. This is the only large soon coming event that the born again Christian will participate in. Christ will soon come for His saints. Study John 14: 3-4 and Matthew 24:36. In the rapture, Jesus is coming only for His saints. In I Corinthians 15: 51-56, Paul tells them that he shares a mystery. In I Thessalonians 4: 14-18, Paul expounds through the clearest and most comprehensive verses in the Bible concerning the rapture. In the rapture Jesus comes for His saints. In His second coming, Jesus comes with His saints. [These events are separated by at least 7 years]. Nothing has to happen before the trumpet will sound and Jesus will claim His bride. The greatest soul harvest in the world is going to happen during the Tribulation Period after the church is gone.
2)Death of America. America is NOT in the Bible. America did not exist when the Bible was written. The focus of God in the last days goes back to where it all started, in the Middle East. We are not mentioned in the Bible also because sin always brings God’s judgment. We have a moral problem that is much worse than our economic problems with our 18 trillion dollar deficit. We are under the judgment of God. We cannot have a democracy existing along side a One World Government. An economic collapse is a possible scenario to lead to America’s rapid demise. A Great Depression is coming. There must be a one world currency followed by the mark. We could face anarchy as in Ferguson, Missouri. We have homegrown terrorism. Only 7-10% of Americans can give an adequate definition of what a born again Christian is– faith in Christ alone. When 7-10% of Americans disappear during the rapture, it will set the stage for anarchy, an economic meltdown, losing our democracy and freedoms, and finally homogenizing America into the one world order. We are indeed at the threshold of a great paradigm shift.
3)Islamic Invasion. The battle of Gog and Magog. The demise of America leads to the Russian led Islamic invasion. [Ezekiel 38-39]. God is setting the stage for these things to take place. Russia and Iran are allies. Russia is helping Iran make atomic bombs. Israel will be attacked by an Islamic alliance. God will destroy the attack of the Russian Islamic army in the mountains of Israel. America was birthed in order to get the Gospel around the world, and to be a safe haven for the Jewish people. God has already declared that Israel will never be destroyed. When the church is raptured, America will no longer be an ally to Israel. Muslims desire to take over through jihad and biological supremacy.
4)New World Order. Our economic woes in America pave the way for the New World Order. Seven Requirements for a One World Government: a)Communicate in real-time. b)Accessibility to Common Markets. c)Universal language (English). d)Rapid Transportation. e)Absolute necessity of Global Security. f)Common currency that will lead to a cashless society. 7)Abandonment of National Sovereignty & individual rights for the greater good of humankind.
5)Antichrist. I John 2:18. The world is crying out for a leader. Someone who knows what the problems are and can get us out of this mess. I Thessalonians 2: 1-8 tells us we cannot know who the antichrist is. Our culture is becoming ripe to be controlled by a man and dominated by security. People will follow a dynamic charismatic man. Revelation 13: 1-10. Biblical names of the Antichrist: Man of Sin, Evil One, The Beast, Son of Perdition, Prince that shall come, The Lawless One. We do not know who the Antichrist is, but Dr. Frazier believes he is alive today.
6)World Peace. The Antichrist will bring this unattainable idea that will not happen until the Prince of Peace comes.
7)Temple Rebuilt. The Jews will also reinstitute their temple sacrifice, at least for 1260 days into the Tribulation Period. Will there be a rebuilt temple? Daniel 9:27 tells us that the sacrifice, offering and temple worship will be brought to a close, and the Antichrist will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed is poured out on him. Red heifers have been genetically engineered for sacrifice. The priests have been trained to perform their duties. What about the Dome of the Rock (Ezekiel 38)? God will take care of it and allow the temple to be built.
8)The Mark. You cannot buy or sell without the mark of the beast. The mark is mentioned eight times in the book of Revelation. What is the purpose of The Mark of The Beast? It is not commerce, i.e. buying and selling! It is worship!
9)Glorious Appearing. When Jesus Christ returns in Revelation 19:11 with the armies of heaven (the saints of God). The second coming of Jesus Christ to the Earth. Jesus came first to suffer and die! He will come the second time as Warrior and King!
