In Dan.7:2-8 we have 4 great beast come up from the sea. Sea, that is peoples of the earth. The first 3 beasts co-exist when the 4th beast rises. The 1st beast is Great Britain and the United States. The 2nd beast is Russia and communism. The 3rd beast is camouflaged with spots. It has 4 heads or hidden dynasties. (PEER) Politics, Economy, Education, and Religion. 2 sets of wings which is media and communication. The 4th beast is the same as the beast of Rev.13:1-2. It is a one world system or new world order. This beast is still rising out of the sea. It will have 7 heads or dominions, 10 horns or leaders. Then will come up a little horn which is AntiChrist.
In II Thes.2:3 there will be “a falling away” first, apostasia in Greek. This is defection from truth or divorcement from God.
PARABLE OF THE FIG TREE
In Matt.24:32-34 Mark 13:28-30 the generation which sees this fig shoot “set up” will not die until all these things be fulfilled. This happened when Israel became a nation again May 15, 1948. This coincides with the baby-boomer generation and they have Grey hair.
WHEN SHALL THESE THINGS BE
In Matt.24:3-8, Mark 13:5-8, Luke 21:8-11.
Many shall come in my name (authority) saying I am Christ (Christian) and shall deceive many.
The best example of this is the so-called Rapture. This is a LIE which can easily be disproved by God’s Word. Christ returns at the seventh trump.
Wars and rumors of war.
Nation shall rise (rouse from obscurity) against (along side) nation kingdom against (along side) kingdom.
The words “shall rise” (eg-i'-ro) in Greek means “rouse from obscurity”.
This word “against” (epi) in Greek means “along side” not in opposition to.
Since 1990 (30) new countries have emerged. We now have the global market place or the global community.
Famines. Amos 8:11 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:
This famine of hearing the words of the LORD is very apparent on TV. Maybe a verse or two then mans’ words for 20 minutes.
Pestilences. Aids, mad cow disease, bird flu and etc.
Earthquakes in diverse places.
This word “earthquakes” (seismos) in Greek means both “earthquake and tempest”.
Look at the hurricanes we have been having.
All these are the beginning of sorrows (birth pangs).
This word “sorrows” (odin) in Greek means “birth pangs of childbirth”.
The birth pangs of a new dispensation, and the contractions are getting closer together. The water may have broke during the tsunami of 2004.
II Pet.3:3 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, II Pet.3:4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.
II Tim.3:1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. II Tim.3:2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, II Tim.3:3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
Rev 13:18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.
(James Moffatt translation)
Now for the gift of interpretation. Let the discerning calculate the cipher of the Beast; it is the cipher of a man, and the figures are six hundred and sixty-six.
Six hundred threescore and six

Revelation 6:12 the sixth seal
Revelation 9:13 the sixth trump
Revelation 16:12 the sixth vial
On June 6 the U.S. Senate will vote on the Marriage Protection Amendment (MPA) which defines marriage as being only between one man and one woman. Because of a power grab by activist judges like the one in Georgia, the MPA is the only way that the sacred institution of marriage will remain between one man and one woman.
