First let me start by saying that my intention is not to fear monger. Nor am I a particular Doomsday'er - but I think we can all admit that something mysterious and unexplained is starting to happen in the world.

I don’t necessarily believe all the Bible has to say, but I decided to start researching the End of Times prophecies that many do believe in. My intention was to search out and see if I could make some recent connections to what the Bible says should be prelude to the Apocalypse.

What follows is a fairly complete list of different Biblical prophecies that I have researched and linked for you to read. I believe knowledge is power, and at the very least after you read this thread you should have a good understanding of current events!

Some of you will undoubtedly find some of the links and quotations offensive – for this I apologize in advance. The intent is not to smear but to provide context for the given prophecy.

After reading this thread, I Impore all of you to do some research and see if you can link more prophecies to current events, or find evidence to refute them!

I always welcome intelligent and civil discouse - if you have your own theories or thoughts, please share them!

Matthew 24:6 "And you will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars; see that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end."


Rumors of wars in all areas of the world now occur frequently thanks to instant media coverage and the availability of a multitude of 24-hour news sources.
More people have been killed in warfare in this century than at any other time in history. As the death toll rises in the Middle East, more and more countries work feverishly to develop devastating weapons of mass destruction. Add to that the expanding threat of terrorism and unpredictable dictators the potential for the outbreak of war exists in nations, kingdoms and places across the globe.

I Timothy 4:1-3 "But the spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons. By means of the hypocrisy of liars seared in their own conscience as with a branding iron, men who forbid marriage and advocate abstaining from foods which God has created to be gratefully shared in by those who believe and know the truth."


Churches today are becoming more and more ecumenical, embracing the New Age interfaith agenda, and denying Christ as the only way to salvation. Giving in to the politically correct media and a corrupt society, they have embrace homosexuality as an acceptable alternate lifestyle and preach tolerance and compromise in place of God's truth for the salvation of the world. The environmentalist movement within the New Age movement lures them into a worship of mother earth, belief in past lives, reincarnation, and Karma while demonizing all those who would eat the meat God gave us as nourishment for our bodies.

I will turn you about and put hooks into your jaws, and I will bring you out, and all your army, horses and horsemen, all of them splendidly attired, a great company with buckler and shield, all of them wielding swords. After many days you will be summoned; in the latter years you will come into the land that is restored from the sword, whose inhabitants have been gathered from many nations to the mountains of Israel which had been a continual waste; but its people were brought out from the nations, and they are living securely, all of them."

Hosea 4: The LORD Accuses Israel

Hear the word of the LORD, O children of Israel,
for the LORD has a controversy with the inhabitants of the land.
There is no faithfulness or steadfast love,
and no knowledge of God in the land;
There is swearing, lying, murder, stealing, and committing adultery;
they break all bounds, and bloodshed follows bloodshed.
Therefore the land mourns,
and all who dwell in it languish,
and also the beasts of the field
and the birds of the heavens,
and even the fish of the sea are taken away.

REBUILDING OF THE TEMPLE, RESTORATION OF TEMPLE WORSHIP AND ANIMAL SACRIFICES IN JERUSALEM

For several end time prophecies to be fulfilled, the temple will have to be rebuilt.


Revelation 11:2 "Leave out the court which is outside the temple and do not measure it, for it has been given to the nations; and they will tread under foot the oly city for forty-two months."

Daniel 9:27 "And he will make a firm covenant with the many for one week, but in the middle of the week he will put a stop to sacrifice and grain offering; and on the wing of abominations will come one who makes desolation, even until a complete destruction, one that is decreed, is poured out on the one who makes desolate."

Daniel 9:26 "Then after the sixty-two weeks the Messiah will be cut off and have nothing, and the people of the prince who is to come will destroy the city and the sanctuary."




Some archeologists believe that the temple mount is actually 340 feet south of the Dome of the Rock site, putting the Dome of the Rock within the Court of the Gentiles. This may be the court outside the temple that is left out.
There are many groups already working on preparations for the new temple. The blueprints are already done, the temple garments have been made, and there have already been attempts to lay the cornerstone of the temple. The only thing standing in the way of the construction of the new temple is Islam's third holiest site, the Dome of the Rock and government support for such an undertaking. Some possible scenarios for the rebuilding of the temple are as follows:

1. The persuasion and performing of miracles by the Antichrist and False Prophet convinces the Islamic world to approve the rebuilding.


2. The United Nations will negotiate the rebuilding of the temple following a war with the armies from the North (Russia and Islamic forces). This assumes that the war with the armies from the North is not the battle of Armageddon as some feel and that this attack occurs before the rapture or tribulation period begins. The supernatural destruction of the Russian army and Islamic forces will cause an outpouring of Christian worship and zeal amongst the Jewish people who will reconstruct the temple.

War in Libya perhaps? With China (EAST) and Russia strongly condemning the attacks and with Russia currently building up their arms, this is starting to look possible.


3. It is determined that the site of the first two temples is actually south of the Dome of the Rock, and the court of the gentiles (Dome of the Rock) will be left out of the 3rd temple.

A group in Israel called the Temple Mount Faithful
have obtained most of the clothing, instruments and other equipment required for temple worship and are actively preparing for the laying of the third temple's cornerstone.


Most of these Prophecies and External text were sourced directly from Conteder Ministries website


Again, if you have more sources, feelings, thoughts, evidence, please link / list them here. A part of me believes that this HAS to be more then coincidence, but then again...its a big world with lots of variance. My personal opinion is, as the signs become more evident and as we aproach 2012 it is time (if you're not already) to get right with God.

People will point out that many of these signs are ambiguous, because they happen frequently on a smaller scale.
In my opinion, the one to watch out for is Revelation ch6 v8; war in conjunction with famine and pestilence, bringing death over a quarter of the earth (or a quarter of the earth's population?).
That would be something radically new.

Matthew 24:7 "For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes."

Matthew 24:6 "And you will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars; see that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end."

These are so vague that they can be applied to any time in history, maybe it was written that way for that very reason.

I have to agree with DISRAELI, too much of that can be said about any period in time really. Nothing that could really be specific to our current time.

Thats true, and I won't argue that. I will counter that never before have we, as a society been so interconnected and witnessed such a united uproar against governments and dictatorships like we are currently witnessing now with the middle east.

I tend to think that back 1000 years ago, nobody would have known when nations would rise up against each other because back then nobody had the technology to communicate that. This is another reason why I think that Matthew 24:6 and 7 might be more relevant today then they were in the past.

Not disagreeing with anything you said but I used to work in a library and all religious text are classified as non-fiction 200.0 - 299.0. Crazy I know but it's true.

True, and I think the one thing to watch out for will be a new Plague or virus that manages to wipe out significant amounts of the population. That would truly be fightening.

Fair enough, I see where your coming from. I appriciate the effort put into the post. I believe in God and Jesus but I also believe that much of the Bible was rewritten for the purpose of control through fear as it reads that way to me. Peace

Trouble is, you could argue the same for amost every decade of the last 2 thousand years. I mean, when was the last time we went a few weeks without earthquakes and volcanoes and wars and persecution of religious groups and people claiming to be the saviour?

It's awesome that you are privy to such knowledge as to know all things. Tell me how exactly do you know the Bible is fiction? I really need to meet and shake the hand of the person who has accomplished something that noone else in history has been able to do, that's prove the Bible wrong.
It's a pleasure to write to you.

But all at relatively the same time? I see what your driving at, and again I can't dispute that...my intention was to just investigate some of the claims and link some evidence that may support said prophecy. I do think that there is certainly some significance with current events and some of the prophecies I quoted though.

Yea I agree with the other poster, and why are even here trolling the thread about someones personal view of the bible. Just read the thread and discuss the knowledge posted, no need to mock the poster personally and I don't know where you have been but this topic is really popular worldwide considering theres about 6 different shows on 3 different networks (among other things) about such topics.
As for the original post, looks really good thanks for all the research and links. I Look foward to reading this!

What about the non violent muslims? Just wondering...

also I felt the need to edit and add, they are persecuting christians, but what is a christian really? I know so few christians who actually even attemp to follow the christ like life of love and forgivness, So yes I would say the prophecies are true in the sense that those who love and want peace are being persecuted

No problem, hope you enjoy the reading. Lots of information to pour through for sure. I think the most startling of all the prophecies in my humble opinion is the Sixth Seal coincidence. It's not verbatim as in Revelations - but it is unique in that the two listed events (A Celestial event and a huge Earthquake) happened within 5 days of each other.

I'm sure there is a biblical prophecy that says immediately before the end comes, Damascus will be destroyed.
Well things are getting pretty dodgy in Syria right now. Maybe this is the start of the end.
