PROPHECY HEADLINES: Germany to deploy 1,200 troops to aid anti-ISIS campaign | Iran threatens to pull out of nuclear deal if UN probe continues | Netanyahu suspends contact with EU over settlement labeling

PROPHECY BOOTCAMP: Our topic for today is titled “Demons Unleashed (Part 3)” from Dr. Ed Hindson’s book “Revelation: Unlocking the Future.”

Satan is the epitome of selfishness. He was created for the purpose of glorifying God, but he has always desired too displace God and rule the universe himself. The Bible describes his selfishness when it expresses his five “I wills”: “I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation… I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.”

OCCUPY TILL I COME: We are continuing our journey through the book, “Coming Events and Present Duties,” by J.C. Ryle. This section is titled, “Watch” (Part 12) based on the parable of the foolish and wise virgins in Matthew 25:1-13. J.C. Ryle writes:

Some tell us that the coming of the Son of Man often means death. No one can read the thousands of epitaphs in churchyards, in which some text about the coming of Christ is thrust in, and not perceive how widespread this view is.

Some tell us that our Lord’s coming means the destruction of Jerusalem. This is a very common way of interpreting the expression. Many find the literal Jerusalem everywhere in New Testament prophecies — though, oddly enough, they refuse to see it in the Old Testament prophecies, and, like Aaron’s rod, they make it swallow up everything else.

The fifth and sixth trumpets announce an unprecedented crisis: a demonic oppression followed by a military invasion that includes an incredible display of modern weaponry and military technology. The result is that one-third of the world is wiped out.

Satan is determined to destroy this planet. The Bible describes him as the “father of lies”. He is pictured as the ultimate deceiver. His name means “accuser”, and he is depicted as the accuser of God and His people. He is opposed to God and seeks to alienate men from the truth. He misled fallen angels, and he tempts men and women to sin against God’s laws. He denies and rejects the truth of God and deceives those who perish without God. Ultimately, he inspires the very spirit of antichrist.

In our view of man’s corruption, of justification by faith, of our need of the sanctifying work of the Spirit, of the sufficiency of Scripture — upon these points I believe we would find that modern believers are much of one mind with believers at Corinth, Ephesus, Philippi, or Rome, in former times. But in our view of the second advent of Christ, I fear we would find there was a mighty difference between us and them, if our experience could be compared. I am afraid we would find that we fall woefully short of them in our estimate of its importance; that in our system of doctrine, it is a star of the fifteenth magnitude, while in their’s it was one of the first. In one word, we would discover that, compared to them in this matter, we slumber and sleep.

I must speak my mind on this subject, now that I am upon it. I do so most unwillingly. I do so at the risk of giving offence, and of rubbing against the prejudices of many whom I love. But it is a cross I feel it a duty to take up. And speak I must.

3. Defense Secretary Ash Carter on Saturday accused Russia of endangering the world order, citing its incursions in Ukraine and loose talk about nuclear weapons, and said the U.S. defense establishment is searching for creative ways to deter Russian aggression and protect U.S. allies.

4. Sergei Chemezov, the chief executive of Russia’s state-owned defense conglomerate, said Russia and Iran have signed a contract on Moscow’s delivery of the advanced S-300 missile defense system to the Islamic Republic.

5. A strong magnitude-6.8 earthquake struck north-central Chile on Saturday, causing buildings to sway in the capital of Santiago.

The prophetic passage of Scripture that we are looking at today is the Song of Solomon. Chapter 2, verses 1-4 read: “I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys. As the lily among thorns, so is my love among the daughters. As the apple tree among the trees of the wood, so is my beloved among the sons. I sat down under his shadow with great delight, and his fruit was sweet to my taste. He brought me to the banqueting house, and his banner over me was love.”

Our second coming quote for today is from David Reagan. He said, “I’ve spent over 25 years studying the signs. And I tell you, folks, there are so many they overwhelm you… You just get overwhelmed by the fact that Jesus is coming soon. You begin to have spiritual eyes, and you start seeing the signs of the times that point to the soon return of Jesus. Everywhere you look it’s as if God has neon lights in the sky flashing on and off saying, ‘Jesus is coming soon! Jesus is coming soon! Jesus is coming soon!'”

Breaking Prophecy News; The World at War, Part 3 (The Prophet Daniel’s Report #568)

PROPHECY HEADLINES: White House sources say Israel won’t get what it wants out of Netanyahu’s visit to D.S. | Israeli pilots training in U.S., possibly for attack on Iran | Puti “worried” about Israeli military action in Syria

PROPHECY BOOTCAMP: Our topic for today is titled “The World at War (Part 3)” from Dr. Ed Hindson’s book “Revelation: Unlocking the Future.”

— The Final Blast

The Bible predicts the final devastation in “one hour” of the the prophetic “Babylon”, the symbolic name for the kingdom of the Antichrist. The Bible says, “All your riches and splendor have vanished, never to be recovered.” Even the merchants and sailors will not come near this land, but will “stand far off, terrified at her torment,” and crying out, “In one hour such great wealth has been brought to ruin!”

The apostle Peter provides an even more vivid description of the final blast that will devastate this planet when he warns, “But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.”

John Phillips notes that Peter’s prophecy of a great, end-times conflagration of the earth and its atmosphere uses precise terminology that accurately describes a nuclear explosion. Liddell and Scott’s Lexicon define the “elements” as “the components into which matter is divided” (or atoms), and the term “dissolved” comes from the basic Greek word meaning to “loose” that which is bound (as in nuclear fission). The term “great noise” is found nowhere else in the New Testament and signifies “a rushing sound of roaring flames.” The term “fervent heat” is derived from a Greek medical term denoting a fever. But Peter’s use of it in application to inanimate objects is the only such known usage anywhere in Greek literature. Thus, Phillips observes, “Peter describes in accurate terms the untying of the atom and the resulting rushing, fiery destruction which follows it.”

The figures and emblems used in the parable also call for some explanation. I will give you my own view of their meaning. I may be wrong. I freely admit that they are not always interpreted exactly in the same way. But you have a right to have my opinion, and I will give it you shortly and decidedly.
