with allegations against several prominent people connected to the UN. We have seenthe Asian tsunami on December 26, 2004 occur with massive loss of life. We haveexperienced the world-wide global financial disasters that began in 2007 and are stillwith us today in 2012. Western governments have fallen because of their involvement in
one way or another in these financial scandals. In the last decade the world’s climate has
become increasingly erratic and destructive. The Arab Spring began unexpectedly inTunisia on December 18, 2010 and has destabilized the Middle East.Is it just coincidence that September 11 seemed to start all this
or can it be explainedby referring to the Biblical descriptions of these events. This book explores thesequestions. It does this by looking at the facts of history and the major political and otherkey events in the world over the last century. It then relates those events to what theBible claims is to be the s
equence of events in the “end
By using this method of interpretation we can track the progress towards the big eventand have confidence that we are not putting our own interpretation on the Bible andreading things into it that are simply not there.
“Joel’s Army” is described in Joel chapter two. The somewhat mysterious description of
this entity has led to much speculation about its nature and the role that it will play inthe end-times. We will look in some detail at the Biblical descriptions o
f this “army” and
how it will accomplish the functions that God has decreed for it. It is not what mostpeople think!
In order to explore the phenomenon of “Joel’s Army”, photo
-realistic Illustrations havebeen created to graphically bring to life exa
ctly what this “army” is and how it will beused by God in the months leading up to the actual Second Coming. This “army” is quite
unique in human history. God will use it for several purposes during the Seventh Bowl. It
will be used to destroy “mystery Babylon” as described in Revelation chapter 18. It will
also produce the twilight that will prevail all over the earth and which is described inZechariah 14:6. Finally, it is also the
“sign of the son of man”
that will appear in the skywhich causes
“all the nations of earth to mourn”
and directly precedes the appearance of Jesus. This is spoken of in Matthew chapter 24:30.The Seals, Trumpets and Bowls of the book of Revelation have been the subjects of many and various speculations. Numerous books that have been written on this topichave mixed the Seals, Trumpets and Bowls in with stories of the future rise of an anti-christ figure. This approach has been popular with many people as it presents somequite sensational future scenarios that satisfy the need for novelty in their lives.This book takes a different approach to prophetic interpretation. The author believes thatGod is in control of world events
not mankind. The Seals, Trumpets and Bowls arepresented in the Bible as judgements that God is bringing on the world during the periodbetween the First and Second Coming of Jesus. God however does nothing without firstinforming His people of His plans (Amos 3:7) Accordingly, God has sketched these majorevents out in the form of the Seal, Trumpet and Bowl prophecies so that His people areforewarned and will understand the situation and not be afraid.Because, the Seals, Trumpets and Bowls are judgments from God on the world
thennaturally we should expect to able to clearly identify these major events across historyand on into today. We can, and we will be looking at this in the book. The BowlJudgements are the relevant ones for our times and these will be examined in somedetail. It will be seen that over the last 100 years or so, major world events thatcorrespond exactly to the Bowl Judgments have occurred
in exactly the sequencedescribed in the Bible.
