Q. With the downturn of the US economy, can we say that it’s a prelude to the rising power of the anti Christ movement? I remember you shared that when the US lost its control and influence over the world’s economy and started to abandon Israel, that is when Russia and Iran will attack Israel to fulfill the prophecy of Ezekiel 38-39. Then could the US economic downturn be the prelude for the anti Christ to rise to power and dominion?
A. Yes, I believe our economic problems are already being seen as the beginning of this country’s fall from world dominance into a subordinate position among world governments. Don’t be fooled into thinking that the bail out programs of the recent past have solved anything. When you’re already bankrupt, a huge loan is never the complete answer. It will only make things worse in the long run unless drastic changes in spending are also implemented. So far there’s been no talk anywhere of requiring these necessary changes.
The most likely outcome of all this is that the wealthy few will become much more so while the rest of us become substantially poorer. This is foretold in the 3rd Seal Judgment of Rev. 6 and that’s exactly where the world is headed. Thankfully, the Lord will remove His Church before the worst of it comes.
