STATEMENT OF FAITH
We believe that the Bible is the inspired
Word of God, that Jesus Christ is the Savior
of the world, and that He will come again
to establish a kingdom that shall never be
destroyed (Daniel 2:44). Those who are born
again (John 3:35) will have eternal life and
rule as kings and priests with Christ forever.
WHAT IS ENDTIME?
In 1968, Irvin Baxter Jr. discovered the United
States and other modern nations in the Bible.
He also found the Berlin Wall in the Bible
and that one day it was to be torn down,
re-uniting Germany, and that event would
be the catalyst to spark an international
movement called the New World Order.
These things have now come to pass. Irvin
Baxter Jr., a Pentecostal minister, began
Endtime Ministries in 1986 when he wrote A
Message For The President, a book explaining
the major prophecies of the Bible which
he had been teaching since 1968. After the
fall of the Berlin Wall, prophetic fulfllment
accelerated rapidly. The decision was made
to launch Endtime magazine. The purpose
of the magazine is to explain the prophecies
of the Bible and to show that they are now
being fulflled in intricate detail. Articles
focus on the soon return of Jesus Christ, the
truth of the Bible, and the need for salvation.
Endtime does not deal with doctrinal
controversies, as valid as they may be. This
will be left to other publications.
Endtime is published bi-monthly by Endtime, Inc., 449 Kingsbridge
Drive, Garland, TX 75040. Subscription price is

Editorial
Irvin Baxter - Editor-in-Chief
God-events
Tere are God-events that come along
only once in all of history. For instance,
there was only one food that destroyed the
entire world. If we say that a certain event
happened before the food, you know
exactly what we are referring to.
Tere was only one frst coming of Christ
to purchase redemption for the human
race. Consequently, all dates are either
indicated as BC (Before Christ) or AD
(Anno Dominiin the year of our Lord).
Are you ready for this?
Te world is now facing another of those
God-events. Im referring to the war
prophesied in the Bible that will begin in
Iraq and will kill one-third of the human
race. Tere is simply no event that compares
with this one in all of human existence. Not
even close!
Te most catastrophic war of all time,
until now, was World War II. Fify-two
million people died in this unprecedented
war. Now, multiply that carnage by FORTY!
Tats what lurks just ahead for the future of
the human race!
Tis edition of Endtime is devoted to
this apocalyptic event that lies just ahead.
Dont miss Two Billion To Die. Tere is
no doubt. It will be one of the God-events.
Middle East
President Bush and Condoleezza Rice
continue to attempt forcing a round peg into
a square hole. President Bush has announced
his intention to host an international peace
conference for the Middle East yet this year.
His goal is to resolve the confict that he
believes is the key to peace on earth. Te
next edition of Endtime magazine will deal
extensively with the future of the Middle
East in Bible prophecy.
Irving Kristol memorably observed,
Whom the gods would destroy they frst
tempt to resolve the Arab-Israeli confict.
Te Prophet Zachariah said it this way:
And in that day will I make Jerusalem
a burdensome stone for all people: all
that burden themselves with it shall be
cut in pieces, though all the people of the
earth be gathered together against it
(Zechariah 12:3).

Q: I was checking the Greek for the word
slay in Rev 9:15. What do you think about
the meaning, to deprive of spiritual life
and procure eternal misery in hell? Do
you think it is possible that the war will
spiritually kill one third of mankind?
- Tom
REPLY
| As you stated, the verb used in Rev. 9:15
is the Greek verb apokteino. This verb (as do
most words) has a range of meanings. Usually,
an author intends on using only one of those
meanings in any particular usage. Discovering
which meaning was originally intended is
generally best determined by the context.
The word apokteino appears 74 times in
the Greek New Testament. The word can refer
both to natural death, as well as to spiritual
death. We know this by Jesus use of the term
in Matthew 10:28. He says, Fear not them
which kill the body, but are not able to kill the
soul Both times where the KJV says kill, the
Greek verb apokteino is used. That said, of the
74 times it is used in the New Testament, most
of the time it refers to physical death. When
it does refer to spiritual death, the context
usually gives clear indicators that this is so (e.g.
kill the soul Matt 10:28).
So, does Revelation 9:15 refer to physical death
or spiritual death? As I mentioned above, the
context of the passage will be the best indicator
of what John was saying. Revelation 9:18 tells
us that the 1/3 of men were killed by the fre,
smoke, and brimstone which issued out of
the horses mouths. This seems to indicate a
physical death brought on by physical means.
Also, consider verse 19: And the rest of the
men which were not killed by these plagues yet
repented not of the works of their hands, that
they should not worship devils This verse
contrasts those who were killed with those
who werent. If John was referring to a spiritual
death, separate from a physical death, this
verse wouldnt make much sense, as those who
were spiritually but not physically dead would
no doubt also not repent of their wickedness;
making the contrast meaningless. However,
if John is referring to a physical death, this
verse becomes clear. Although 1/3 of man was
killed through the plagues, those who were
not killed are so hard of heart that even this
observable catastrophe does not move them
to repentance.
To sum it up: Although the word apokteino
can be used both of physical and spiritual
death, in the NT, it is usually used of physical
death. When it is referring to spiritual death,
there are normally clear indications of this in
the text (e.g. kill the soul). This, along with the
context of Revelation 9:15, indicates that the
1/3 of mankind killed by the 6th trumpet war
are physically killed.
Q: Does the Church of Philadelphia
relate to any form of believers of today?
(Reference Rev 3: 7-10)
- Michael
REPLY
| The messages to the seven churches
of Asia in Revelation 2 3 are messages to
literal churches of that day. God was speaking
specifcally to the Philadelphia church and he
placed these things in His word for us to learn
from today. This does not mean, however, that
we are living in the Philadelphia church age
today. God allows each Christian to express
free will and decide what type of Christian they
will be. The value to us
comes when we take the
positive principals and
apply them to
our personal
relationships with
God and man.
Q: What happens when we die? Do we go
directly to heaven? When are Christians
judged?
- Linda
REPLY
| The answer all depends on the condition
of ones soul. For those who have been born
again according to John 3 and Acts 2, they will
enjoy entering into the presence of the Lord
according to II Cor 5:8, We are confdent, I say,
and willing rather to be absent from the body,
and to be present with the Lord. The context
of this passage seems to indicate that our spirit
and soul goes directly to Heaven. The physical
body goes back to the dust of the earth (Gen.
3:19). After the resurrection (rapture) we will
all receive a new body (I Peter 3:21). Romans
14:10 says, We shall all stand before the
judgment seat of Christ. According to Rev. 20,
the fnal judgment takes place 1000 years after
the rapture. As for the destiny of those who
have chosen not to walk with God, an example
was given by Jesus in Luke 16:19, about a rich
man who ignored a beggar named Lazarus.
Lazarus went to Heaven with Abraham, but
the rich man wound up in torments (Hell). The
Bible presents this story as true, and not as a
fctional parable for mere teaching purposes.
For a more in-depth study, we recommend
that you obtain Irvin Baxters teaching course
which deals directly with these subjects. The
course is a production of Endtime University,
entitled, Understanding the Bible with
Irvin Baxter. You may order the course at

Q: Does the mark of the beast happen
after the Antichrist is revealed? Does the
False Prophet come on the scene after the
Antichrist is revealed?

REPLY
| Yes, Rev. 9:13-16 provides a foundation
for the implementation of the mark of the
beast system. The Antichrist is revealed at the
time of the Abomination of Desolation (Mat.
24), which happens in the middle of the fnal 7
years, 3 1/2 years or 42 months (Rev. 13:5) after
the Confrmation of the Covenant (Daniel 9: 23-
27). Once the Antichrist is revealed in the newly
rebuilt Jewish temple on the Temple Mount in
Jerusalem (II Thes. 2:4), then he will soon usher
in the global-wide numbering system, designed
to control the personal buying habits of human
beings worldwide, thus gaining control of the
world economy itself.
As far as when the false prophet comes on the
scene, Rev. 13 tells us that he is actually the
one who persuades the world to worship the
Antichrist using false miracles. He helps to force
the implementation of his global numbering
system (666). In order for the false prophet to
help usher in the revealing of the Antichrist at
the Abomination of Desolation, he will have to
be very active prior to the revealing. Many who
understand prophecy will recognize who he is
based on the scriptures.

Q: How do you think two billion people could
die? We Americans have a see no evil, hear
no evil mentality as long as the good times
keep rolling, which is a similar mentality of
those in the roaring 20s before the crash.
We can speculate what the scenario will
be, but the fact is, the mark is coming as
prophesied and we can not prevent it, only
delay the inevitable. Isnt there enough pain
and sufering and evil in this world today?
As far as Im concerned lets get on with
eternity, even so come Lord Jesus. Keep up
the good work Irvin Baxter and staf. Your
program is one that makes end time news
and biblical truth an unavoidable issue for
humanity. Though it may be a difcult pill
to swallow, a needed pill none the less. Just
be careful concerning the speculating! The
Lord bless you and yours

It would be nearly impossible to have
2 billion casualties without going nuclear.
The scripture also seems to indicate that
nuclear weapons will be used at the battle of
Armageddon according to Zechariah 14:12,
And this shall be the plague wherewith the
LORD will smite all the people that have fought
against Jerusalem; Their fesh shall consume
away while they stand upon their feet, and
their eyes shall consume away in their holes,
and their tongue shall consume away in their
mouth. Most of the major nations which will
most likely be involved in the 6th trumpet war
are nuclear capable nations. The news has been
echoing world leaders statements regarding
their potential use.
Q: My son, Andrew (13 yrs) and I are really
into your prophecy series and enjoy it. We
are trying to fgure out, based on news
articles on RFID chips, will RFID will be part
of the mark of the Beast? Do you discuss it
on any of your DVDs? Thanks so much
- Juli

REPLY
| We are glad to hear that Endtime material
is a blessing to you all. The passage where the
Mark of the Beast is found is Revelation 13:16-18.
Verse 18 contains the phrase, Six hundred
threescore and six, (666), which is derived
from the original Greek words: chi xi stigma
(pronounced key z stigma). This is the number
of the beast or of a man (the Antichrist). The last
Greek word in the phrase, stigma, represents the
fnal 6, and it literally means to stick or to prick,
a mark incised or punched for recognition of
ownership. Today, it is becoming increasingly
popular for RFID chips to be surgically implanted
under human skin. This procedure has been
approved and encouraged by both the US Food
and Drug Administration, and the American
Medical Association. We are not saying for sure
that RFID implants will be the mechanism used
by the Antichrist, however, its a real possibility
which we cannot ignore. Endtime Ministries has
produced 2 important DVDs which deal with this
subject, entitled, 666Satans Master Plan and
666How Close. We also ofer several DVDs
by Katherine Albrecht exploring the possibility
that RFID could be the mechanism used to fulfll
the technology side of this ancient prophecy.
You can obtain these at www.endtime.com or
call 1.800.ENDTIME (1.800.363.8463)
Q: I love the teaching, and prophetic
insight of Rev. Baxter. I was privileged
to enjoy Endtimes holy land prophecy
tour in the fall of 1995. In fact I was there
when Israeli Prime Minister Rabin was
assassinated. It was an awesome trip
that has ever impacted my life. Who are
Gods real chosen people? In the Bible,
Judah-Benjamin were taken captive by
the Babylonians, mixed with them, and
then adopted the Babylonian religions.
I believe that Christians are Gods chosen
people. Keep up the good work of
the Lord.
- Mike
REPLY
|You are correct that born again Christians
today are, in fact, Gods modern chosen people.
Israel has taken many twists and turns through
her lengthy history, and many times, she made
very poor choices which cost her dearly. The
fact remains, however, that according to Ezekiel
37, God promised to gather the Jewish people
back to their land, which you toured, and re-
establish them as a nation. This was fulflled
in 1948. This same passage also prophesies a
supernatural spiritual awakening for Israel that
still is yet a future event.
God promised in Joel 2:28 to pour out His Spirit
upon all fesh in the last days, which includes
the nation of Israel. Furthermore, Romans
11:25 provides this promise to the last-days
Jews: blindness in part is happened to Israel,
until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in. 26
And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written,
There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and
shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: 27
For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall
take away their sins. By the way, the upcoming
Endtime Prophecy Tour of 2008 will be 11 days,
exclusively in Israel. For more information

World Review
6TH TRUMPET WATCH
MISSILE DEFENSE SYSTEM IS UP AND
RUNNING, MILITARY SAYS
Senior military of cers are saying that the
tracking radars and interceptor rockets of
a new American missile defense system
can now be turned on at any time. The
antimissile system could guard against the
risk of ballistic missile attack from North
Korea even while development continues
on a series of radars in California and the
Pacifc Ocean and on interceptor missiles in
Alaska and California.
BUSH SETTING UP AMERICA FOR WAR
WITH IRAN
Senior American intelligence and defense
of cials believe President Bush and his inner
circle are taking steps to put America on the
path to war with Iran. Pentagon planners
have developed a list of up to 2,000 bombing
targets in Iran. In a theoretical scenario put
forth by a senior intelligence of cer, the U.S.
would provoke a major Iranian response,
perhaps in the form of moves to cut of Gulf
oil supplies, to provide a trigger for air strikes
against Iran.
ALQAIDA PLANS NUCLEAR ATTACKS
ON 7 U.S. CITIES
FBI Director Robert Mueller said that al-
Qaidas paramount goal is to kill hundreds of
thousands of Americans. He said the threat
feels so real he lies awake at night thinking
about the prospect. In the book The Day
of Islam, author Paul Williams maintains
that al-Qaida is not content to blow up one
nuclear device or even simply a dirty nuke,
but wants to explode real nuclear devices in
seven U.S. cities simultaneously.
BUSH WARNS OF IRAN NUCLEAR
HOLOCAUST
In a speech to an American Legion group
in Nevada, and in an efort to convince
the war-weary public, President Bush said
that the war in Iraq was the central front in
the fght against what he described as the
Sunni Muslim extremism of the al-Qaeda
terrorist network and the Shiite extremism
fuelled by Iran. He warned that letting Iran
acquire atomic weapons risked putting
the Middle East under the shadow of a
nuclear holocaust.
CHINA THREATENS NUCLEAR OPTION
OF DOLLAR SALES
The Chinese government has begun a
concerted campaign of economic threats
against the United States. It appears that
Beijing may use its $1.33 trillion of foreign
reserves as a political weapon to counter
pressure from the U.S. Congress. Described
as Chinas nuclear option in the state media,
such action could trigger a dollar crash.
U.S. INTELLIGENCE OFFICER SAYS
CHINAS MISPLACED CONFIDENCE IN
WAR CONTROL A DANGER
Chinese of cials are studying the concept of
war control to evaluate scenarios should
fghting break out with Taiwan. China has
threatened war if the island tries to formalize
its de-facto independence. Washington has
pledged defensive weapons for Taiwan and
has hinted it would provide military backing
if China attacked.
EU WATCH
EU LAWYERS AGREE ON TREATY TEXT
Legal experts from the 27 European Union
countries have agreed on a draft reform
treaty. The treaty is set to replace the defunct
European constitution. A Portuguese
diplomat said Britain should be satisfed
with the outcome, but he insisted there was
no guarantee of an agreement.
EURO HITS ALLTIME HIGH
The euro reached a new all-time high
against the dollar. At its highest point, one
euro bought 1.4130 dollars. Pessimism
about the U.S. economy, worsened by the
housing crisis and the subsequent interest
rate cut pushed the dollar further down.
EUS SOLANA REFUSES COMMENT ON
NONUN SANCTIONS AGAINST IRAN
EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana refused
to comment on the possibility of non-United
Nations sanctions against Iran. Solanas
comments came after French Prime Minister
Francois Fillon said that tensions with
Iran were now extreme. Solana has been
negotiating to get Iran to suspend uranium
enrichment in exchange for political and
trade incentives.
EU AND THE GLOBALIST ALLIANCE
According to an article written by a
noted Norwegian blogger, Fjordman,
multiculturalism is a tool to divide and
conquer. He points out that by dismantling
national borders, the EU has facilitated the
largest migration waves in European history,
and that Stalin did the same thing with
moving large population groups around to
unsettle the state and keep it disunited. He
says that people proclaiming that they are
citizens of the world fail to acknowledge
that rights can only be protected by
sovereign states upholding their territorial
and legal integrity.
WILLIAM HAGUE CONDEMNS
EU TREATY
According to the frst authoritative analysis,
the new European Union treaty contains only
10 changes to the 250 proposals originally
outlined in the former EU constitution.
William Hague, the shadow foreign secretary,
said it was the EU constitution by another
name. By any honest analytical standards,
this treaty will mean, if it is enacted, a major
transfer of powers from Britain to the EU, he
said.

THOUGH FDA APPROVED, MICROCHIP
IMPLANTS LINKED TO ANIMAL CANCER
When the U.S. Food and Drug Administration
approved implanting microchips in humans,
the manufacturer said it would save lives,
but neither the company nor the regulators
mentioned that a series of studies stated
that chip implants had induced malignant
tumors in some lab mice and rats. The
transponders were the cause of the tumors,
said Keith Johnson, a retired toxicologic
pathologist.
ARIZONA ADOPTS HYBRID ID
APPROACH
Arizona is now the third state to volunteer
to develop a hybrid identifcation card that
combines a state drivers license with a U.S.
border-crossing card. Arizonas new drivers
license is poised to be one of the nations
frst to comply with Real ID requirements.
ALZHEIMERS PATIENTS LINING UP
FOR MICROCHIP
Up to 200 Alzheimers patients living near
Palm Beach, Fla., have been implanted with
the VeriChip. The chip contains a 16-digit
identifcation number, and the number will
be placed in a database in order to provide
medical information. Ida Frankel, who
developed Alzheimers disease, was one
of the frst patients to be implanted with a
VeriChip.
MICROCHIP IMPLANTS RAISE
PRIVACY CONCERN
The chipping of two workers with RFID
chips under the skin was merely a way of
restricting access to vaults that held sensitive
data and images for police departments,
according to CityWatcher.com, a provider
of surveillance equipment. The news that
workers had been injected with electronic
identifers to perform their jobs fred up a
debate over the proliferation of ever-more-
precise tracking technologies and their
ability to erode privacy. Ultimately, says
Katherine Albrecht, a privacy advocate, the
fear is that the government or your employer
might someday say, Take a chip or starve.
MIDDLE EAST WATCH
ARCHEOLOGISTS FIND 2ND
TEMPLE QUARRY
The Israel Antiquities Authority has
uncovered the ancient quarry where
King Herods workers chiseled huge high-
quality limestones for the construction of
the Second Temple. This is the frst Second
Temple quarry ever found. The enormous
size of the stones found at the site as well
as coins and fragments of pottery vessels
dating back to the frst century AD indicated
that this was the site used 2,000 years ago in
the construction of the walls of the Temple
Mount.
UN ENVOY: REVIVED MIDEAST
TALKS POSSIBLE
Michael Williams, the U.N. special coordinator
for the Middle East peace process, said
there are signs of hope that Israel and
the Palestinians can agree to revive the
stalled peace process in time for a related
U.S.-sponsored international conference in
November. He said the dialogue thats been
going on between Israeli Prime Minister
Ehud Olmert and Palestinian President
Mahmoud Abbas are encouraging signals.
There is a hope now which has been absent
for almost seven years.
OLMERT AND PERES: PALESTINIAN
STATE ON 100% OF WEST BANK AREA,
WITH SWAPS
According to an article in the Haaretz
newspaper, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert
examined a plan in which Israel would
transfer to the Palestinian state, areas
equivalent to 100 percent of the territories
conquered in 1967. The plan includes a
timetable for negotiations for the fnal
status agreement and implementing it.
Olmert met with Mahmoud Abbas and they
agreed that cooperation between Israel
and the Palestinian Authority would be
expanded. Our mutual goal is to realize the
shared vision between us and [U.S. President
George] Bush regarding the establishment
of two states for two peoples, who live side
by side in security and peace. We want to
achieve this as soon as possible.

AMERO MAKES COINAGE DEBUT
Parody coin designer Daniel Carr has
launched production of an amero coin.
He is selling the coins to coin dealers and

a common currency between the United
States, Canada, and Mexico.
UN REJECTS TAIWAN ADMISSION
APPLICATION
The United Nations has rejected Taiwans
application to become a member of the

WORLD RELIGION
ALBRIGHT: IGNORE RELIGION AT OUR
OWN PERIL
Former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine
Albright says that in order to efectively
conduct foreign policy today, you have to
understand the role of God and religion. She
says we in the U.S. ignore the roll of religion
in politics with our belief in a separation of

CHIEF RABBIS, EU PRESIDENT DISCUSS
INTERFAITH UN
European Parliament President Hans-
Gert Pottering, in a meeting with Israels
chief rabbis, said that he would support
the establishment of an interfaith United

Metzger said the president sent an envoy
to discuss in more detail the creation of an
international body made up of religious
leaders who could foster peace, and that he
envisions the body being based in the holy
city of Jerusalem.
ISLAMIC EDUCATION FOR ALL
A new government study, condemned by
the Christian ministry, the Barnabas Fund,
is being condemned because it would
move closer to imposing Islam in the United
Kingdom as a religion of state. Should this
report be implemented, education will be
handed over more and more to Muslims,
according to a Barnabas Fund analysis.
LISTEN TO EARTH, POPE SAYS IN

The prophecy hits you in the face like a ton of bricks! And
the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an
hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for TO SLAY THE
THIRD PART OF MEN. (Revelation 9:15)
My frst reaction wasthat cant really be what the
prophecy says! To slay the third part of men? That would
be two billion people dead! Surely not!
I checked the Greek. Sure enoughone-third of
mankind. I checked several other translationsone-third
of the human race; one-third of all the people on earth;
one-third of humanity. They all said the same thing!
A WAR IS JUST AHEAD THAT WILL KILL TWO BILLION
HUMAN BEINGS!
There simply is no precedent!
So that we can understand the enormity of this
prophecy, consider that, prior to the 20th century, there
had never been a war with one million fatalities. In 1914,
World War I broke out resulting in the death of 8.2 million
human beings! They called it The Great War! Some said it
would be the war to end all wars. But it wasnt.
Twenty short years later, the world was plunged into
World War II. This time there were not 8.2 million killed.
This time52 million! It was as though something had
come unhinged within the human soul! Six thousand
years of recorded human history and not one war with
1 million fatalities. Then, within 20 years of each other,
two wars had claimed 8.2 million and 52 million lives.
Even more ominous were the two mushroom clouds that
towered over Hiroshima and Nagasaki as World War II
came to its apocalyptic conclusion.
Fear around the globe was palpable. What would the
next war producewith these new weapons of mass
destruction flling the arsenals of the worlds nations?
World leaders just refused to think the unthinkable. But it
was frighteningly obvious that mankind now possessed
the power to wipe all life of the face of the planetmany
times over.
In a desperate attempt to insure that World War III
would never happen, the nations of the world decided
to create an organization designed to prevent war. They
called it the United Nations. Though many small wars
have raged around the globe since 1945, so far this new
system of global governance has contributed to avoiding
the nightmare scenario of World War III. All of us hope
that the tenuous peace that has largely prevailed will

hold. But will it? No!
The prophecy is crystal clear. World War III is coming!
This time, there wont be 8.2 million dead. There wont be
52 million dead. This time 2 billion human beings will be
annihilated from the face of the earth! We are talking about
40 times the fatalities of World War II! Its almost impossible
to comprehend, but it is going to happen. The only question
is: When?
The war will start in Iraq!
According to Revelation 9:14, the prophesied war will
originate from the area of the Euphrates River. The Euphrates
River is located mostly in Iraq where the United States has
170,000 troops stationed at this present time. Since fghting
is raging along the Euphrates today, we have to ask if the
Sixth Trumpet War might already have begun.
A war that kills two billion people will obviously be
a World War, making it World War III. James Woolsey, CIA
Director during the Clinton administration, says that World
War III began on 9/11. Thomas Friedman of the New York
Times agrees with him. Former Speaker of the House Newt
Gingrich also believes that World War III started on 9/11.
Finally, President Bush has added his voice to those who
contend we are now in WW III. On May 6, 2006, he stated
that the revolt of passengers on Flight 93 was, The frst
counter-attack of World War III.
When does the Bible say this war will occur?
The Sixth Trumpet War must occur before the
beginning of the great tribulation. The great tribulation is
that three and one-half year period that will immediately
precede the Battle of Armageddon. How do we know
the Euphrates River War must happen before the great
tribulation begins?
This prophesied war occurs in Revelation 9:13-21.
Right after this in Revelation 10, the beginning of the great
tribulation is recorded. In verse 5, an angel stands with
one foot on the land and one foot on the water declaring
that delay shall be no longer. Right after this, Revelation 11
describes the events of the fnal three and one-half years
preceding the Battle of Armageddon. In Revelation 11:2, we
are told that Jerusalem will be trodden down of the Gentiles
for the next 42 months (3 years). Then in Revelation 11:3,
Gods two witnesses begin their ministries, which continue
for the next 1260 days (3 years) until the end of the
tribulation period.
At the end of Revelation 11, the two witnesses are
killed, the last trumpet sounds, and the Battle of Armageddon
takes place. It is at this time that Jesus Christ returns to earth
to reign as King of kings and Lord of lords.
This same sequence of events is recorded in Daniel
12:1-7. An angel stands upon the waters and declares that
there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since
there was a nation even to that time, referring to the great
tribulation. One asked the angel how long it would be until
all this was over. He answered, Until a time, times, and an
half (3 years).
Both of these accounts describe an angel declaring
the beginning of a time of great tribulation, which will last
for three and one-half years.
Within the next 12 months?
According to the biblical prophetic timeline given
in scripture, four major prophetic fulfllments will occur at
approximately the same time.

If we can demonstrate that all four of these prophetic
developments are occurring right now, then it becomes
obvious that the time for the Euphrates River War has
arrived! Please walk through the prophecies with me.
An international peace plan for the Middle East
Daniel 9:27 prophesies that the world community
and the leader of the world community, the Antichrist,
will confrm the Abrahamic covenant with many for seven
years. The Abrahamic covenant is the promise God made
to Abraham that the Promised Land would be given to his
descendants. The passage is Genesis 15:18,
In the same day the LORD made a covenant with
Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from
the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates:
This confrmation of the covenant will confrm Israels
right to exist in the Holy Land and will mark the beginning
of the fnal seven years to Armageddon. Halfway through
the fnal seven years, the Antichrist will order the stopping
of animal sacrifces on the Temple Mount, which will have
been resumed by then. He will then stand in the temple
claiming to be God. This could mean he will claim to be the
ultimate authority over the Temple Mount since it will have
been placed under international supervision by then.
Does such an international peace plan exist?
In 2002, it was decided that Israelis and Palestinians
simply could not make peace between themselves without
international intervention. A new international alliance was
formed called the Quartet. The alliance consisted of the
United States, the European Union, Russia, and the United
Nations. Its sole purpose of existence was to produce a
peace plan for the Middle East and to oversee its adoption.
In April of 2003, the Quartet presented a peace plan
to Israelis and Palestinians called the Roadmap for Peace.
The Roadmap called for the determining of fnal borders
between the Palestinians and the Israelis, settling the status
of Jerusalem and settling the status of the Temple Mount.
Endtime_11-27.indd 4 11/14/07 11:49:43 AM
ENDTIMEMAGAZINE | September-October 2007 13 SubscribeNow| www.endtime.com| Call 1.800.Endtime
In June of 2003, the Roadmap for Peace was adopted
by Israelis and Palestinians at a signing ceremony that
President Bush attended. Since that time, the international
community has struggled to implement the Roadmap
without success.
At the beginning of 2007, the White House
announced that peace in the Middle East would be
one of the premier goals of President Bushs fnal two
years in of ce. A full-blown initiative to reach this goal
was launched.
Meetings of the Quartet were held, and a steady stream
of visits to the Middle East by high profle diplomats began.
These included the new Secretary General of the United
Nations Ban Ki Moon, U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza
Rice, and European Union High Representative of Foreign
Afairs Javier Solana.
In June of 2007, the
Quartet upped the ante even
farther. They appointed Tony
Blair, the high-profle former
prime minister of Great Britain,
to be the special envoy to the
Middle East. In July, President
Bush announced his intention
to host an international
conference on the Middle
East with the goal of bringing
the implementation of the
Roadmap for Peace to a
successful conclusion.
Under the intense
diplomatic pressure, Israeli
Prime Minister Ehud Olmert
and Palestinian Authority
Chairman Mahmoud Abbas
agreed to begin meeting
face-to-face bi-weekly. The
purpose of these meetings
was to pound out a general
agreement on core issues
for adoption at the peace
conference, tentatively announced for November 15, 2007.
Those core issues were defned as fnal borders, status of
Palestinian refugees, the status of Jerusalem and the status
of the Temple Mount.
If a general agreement can be attained before the
conference on these core issues, then negotiators will fesh
out the details of a fnal peace treaty within the six months
after the conference. This would allow the signing of the
treaty during the fnal year of the Bush administration.
Will a peace agreement on the Middle East be achieved?
According to the prophecies of the Bible, some form
of an agreement will be reached on the status of the Temple
Mount. Revelation 11:1-2 states that a rebuilt Jewish temple
will be under Jewish control while the outer court of the
temple will be under Gentile control. This arrangement
will continue during the 42 months preceding the Battle of
Armageddon.
Jesus also stated that Judea (the West Bank) would be
a place of terrible tribulation during this same 42 months.
This indicates that this area will be placed under the control
of Israels enemies.
From these specifc prophecies, we can conclude
that a peace agreement will take place, and when this
occurs, it will mark the beginning of the fnal seven years to
Armageddon.
The building of Israels temple on the Temple Mount
We have two specifc prophecies that describe a
temple standing on the Temple Mount three and one-half
years before Armageddon. II
Thessalonians 2:3-4 states that the
man of sin, the Antichrist, will sit in
the temple of God, claiming to be
God. This is the event known as the
abomination of desolation, which
occurs three and one-half years
before Armageddon. Its obvious
that the Antichrist cannot sit in a
temple if there isnt one. Revelation
11:1-2 describes the measuring of
a temple on the Temple Mount 42
months before Armageddon and
the Second Coming. Of course,
a temple couldnt possibly be
measured if none existed.
Since both of these prophecies
foretell that a temple will exist
three and one-half years before
Armageddon, we know for certain
that the temple has to be built
prior to this time.
When will the temple be built?
When Israels First Temple
was completed in 968 BC, King
Solomon ofered an animal sacrifce at the dedication. After
this, daily sacrifces were ofered as mandated by scripture.
When the Second Temple was completed in 516 BC, again
the daily sacrifces were instituted.
When the Third Temple is completed, sacrifces will be
ofered again. How do we know this? The Bible prophesies
that the Antichrist will cause the sacrifce and the oblation
to stop. You cant stop sacrifces that are not in progress.
Why will the Antichrist stop the sacrifces?
Imagine the cameras of CNN and other news services
honing in on the little lamb being ofered for the morning
sacrifce and then another little lamb being sacrifced that
evening. In our present animal rights climate, how long will

it take for the animal rights activists to begin marching
with placards: ANIMALS HAVE RIGHTS TOO! BARBARISM IN
THE 21st CENTURY! It wont take long.
We know that the sacrifces are stopped in the midst
of the fnal seven years (Daniel 9:27). From this we can
conclude that the building of the temple will be completed
not too long before this midway point.
How close are we to the building of the Third Temple?
For many years, the Temple Institute in Jerusalem has
been preparing the furniture and the utensils of the temple
in anticipation of the time when the temple will be rebuilt.
Within the last two years, the Institute has announced that
these preparations are now complete.
On October 13, 2004, the Jewish Sanhedrin was
reborn after being disbanded for 1,600 years. The
Sanhedrin was Israels supreme court in biblical times. It
was the Sanhedrin that put Jesus and many of the apostles
on trial.
At the Sanhedrins monthly meeting in June of
2005, they decided it was time to begin the rebuilding of
the temple. Since the Israeli government does not allow
Jewish religious activity on the Temple Mount, it was
decided that the temple would be built of-site, in the
same way that Solomons temple was built of-site and
then assembled on the Temple Mount. The decision was
made to prefabricate the building of the temple for quick
assembly once permission is granted by the government
to construct it.
On March 22, 2007, an article appeared in the Religion
News Service announcing the Sanhedrins plan to ofer a
Passover Sacrifce. They planned to sacrifce sheep on the
Temple Mount on the day before the Passover, which was
to start at sundown April 2. If the government will not
resist, we will do it, said Rabbi Dov Stein, a member of
the Sanhedrin.
The Sanhedrin bought a herd of 12 sheep, 110-150
pounds each, from a farm in southern Israel. Anyone
wanting to eat of the sacrifce can pay seven shekels ($1.67)
for an 8-10 gram slice, the minimum required by Jewish
law, Stein said.
The only thing standing between Israel and the
prophesied rebuilding of her temple is an agreement on
the status of the Temple Mount, which the Roadmap for
Peace calls for.
Preparations for the mark of the beast
Preparations for the mark of the beast must take
place in the frst three and one-half years of the fnal seven,
since the mark will be implemented during the reign of the
Antichrist, which takes place during the last three and a
half years.
The prophecy states:
And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor,
free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or
in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell,
save he that had the mark, or the name
of the beast, or the number of his name.
Revelation 13:16-17
Economic sanctions are the favorite tool of the
United Nations against those states that will not submit
to the edicts of the world community. When sanctions are
levied against a nation, as is now being done to Iran, the
member nations of the UN agree to not trade with that
nation. The goal is to create such economic pressure that
the ofending nation will submit to the will of the world
government structure.
This same practice of sanctions will be used by
the world government during the great tribulation.
However, it will not only be used against nations, but also
against individuals.

The Antichrist will control the people of the world
during the great tribulation by forcing every person on
earth to worship him (pledge allegiance to him). Those who
do will be given a mark or a number permitting them to
participate in the economy of the world. Those who refuse
will be sanctioned economically by denying them the
privilege of buying and selling. Only since the invention
of the computer and the birth of the Internet has such a
system of worldwide economic control been possible.
The system is being set up now!
On May 11, 2005, President Bush signed the Real ID Act.
This law, advocated by the 9/11 Commission, was designed
to give the government control over every person in the
United States. The rationale behind this huge suspension
of freedom was that the only way to spot terrorists is to be
able to track and control everybody.
The Real ID Act mandates that every American have a
national ID card obtained from their state Bureau of Motor
Vehicles, by May 11, 2008. Coded into this card will be your
birth certifcate, your number (SS number), your digitized
picture, and your biometric identifcation (fngerprint or
eyescan).
It is rather sobering that the prophecy states the mark
will be in the hand or the forehead. Our fngerprints are on
our hands, and our eyes are in our foreheads. Too close for
comfort, isnt it!
The key to total control
The Real ID Act requires that each state place all this
information into the database of the BMV. Furthermore, the
state is then required to link its database with the databases
of the other 49 statescreating a national database. Once
every persons information is placed into the national
database, the federal government can then access your
records at the push of a button!
Furthermore, without a national ID card, a person
wont be able to board an airplane, open a bank account or
access any service requiring approved federal ID.
Without your ID card, you cant buy or sell
Sec. 707 of Homeland Securitys Immigration Bill
reveals exactly what proponents of big government intend
to do. Section 707 is titled: Report on social security card-
based employment eligibility verifcation.
(A) A requirement that social security cards that are
made of a durable plastic or similar material and that include
an encrypted, machine-readable electronic identifcation
strip and a digital photograph of the individual to whom
the card is issued, be issued to each individual (whether or
not a United States citizen).
(B) The creation of a unifed database to be maintained
by the Department of Homeland Security and comprised
of data from the Social Security Administration and the
Department of Homeland Security specifying the work
authorization of individuals (including both United States
citizens and non-citizens) for the purpose of conducting
employment eligibility verifcation.
(C) A requirement that all employers verify the
employment eligibility of all new hires using the social
security cards described in subparagraph (A) and a phone,
electronic card-reading, or other mechanism to seek
verifcation of employment eligibility through the use of
the unifed database described in subparagraph (B).
This bill would have required you to have a national
ID or else you would have been unable to hold a job in
America! No job? No buying and selling! The administration
and Homeland Security pushed for the passage of the
Immigration Bill with all of their might. Thankfully, it went
down to defeat. However, the danger is not past.
In spite of this decisive defeat, Homeland Security is
determined to enforce its system of total control over the
populace through its national ID scheme. The Real ID Act is
still law and due to be implemented starting May 11, 2008.
You can be sure that Homeland Security fully intends to
fnd another way to require a national ID as a condition of
employment.
Realizing that the implementation of the national ID
would spell the end of freedom, as we have known it, many
states are moving to reverse the Real ID Act. Seven states
have now passed laws against its implementation. Twenty-
seven others have either passed resolutions against it or
have introduced bills against it in their state legislatures.
The government is justifying this obsession with
control by contending that the security of the nation
requires it. However, we must not forget that control and
freedom are opposite terms. If we are controlled, we are

Whats behind the Real ID?
CNET news disclosed on October 26, 2005 whats
behind this drive for the implementation of a national
ID. The International Civil Aviation Organization, a United
Nations agency, has set globally interoperable standards
for identifcation documents. So what we are really
witnessing is not just the setting up of a national ID. We
are actually experiencing the establishment of a global ID
system.
Great Britain is also in the process of establishing
a national ID card. George Bush and Tony Blair agreed
that Britains cards would be readable on Americas card-
reading machines and Americas cards would be readable
on Britains machines. Then the other 26 nations in the EU
decided they should make their ID cards compatible with
Britains ID cards; thus they will also be compatible with
our cards. Consequently, the national ID will now be good
in the U.S. and throughout Europe! You get the idea. The
national ID is quickly being transformed into a global ID.

Is the mechanism for the mark of the beast being put in
place right now? Obviously!

The Euphrates River War
The fourth prophecy that will be fulflled just before
the fnal three and one-half years begins is the Euphrates
River War. Obviously, this prophecy does not even require
discussion. The fact that it is in process of fulfllment at this
moment is self-evident. The United States has 170,000 troops
fghting up and down the Euphrates at this present time.
The checklist:
International peace plan for the Middle East
Building of Israels temple

Preparing for the mark of the beast
War fought along the Euphrates River

Since all four of these prophetic fulfllments are in
progress right now, it appears certain that the present
Euphrates River War is the Euphrates River War of Revelation
9:13-21. If this is true, then we know that two billion people
will die before this war comes to its culmination.
President Bush has about one year left of his term. Since
this is his war and considering that he has the temperament
to participate in such a war, it certainly seems probable
that the prophesied apocalypse will occur while he is yet
in ofce.
If these things prove to be true, then two billion
human beings will die in the next 12 months!
God help us all!
Will the national ID become the mark of the beast?
All of the elements needed for establishing
the prophesied mark of the beast are present in the
requirements of the Real ID Act. The only thing that
would have to be added would be some type of pledge
of allegiance to the Antichrist or to his one-world
government. If the Real ID Act is not repealed, it appears
almost certain that it will ultimately become the mark of
the beast.

The entire world is preparing for the mark
Out of 193 nations on earth, 188 of them either have
a national ID card or are in the process of implementing
one. The only nations without a national ID are Mexico,
Ireland, Congo, New Zealand, and the Philippines.

Even though there have been numerous attempts
to disprove the Jewish Holocaust ever occurred, it
has been unequivocally documented by the survivors
and guards of the Nazi death camps, and from the
testimony taken during the 1945 Nuremburg War
crimes hearings.
Since his election in June 2005, Iranian President
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has ridiculed Jewish history
and sparked worldwide criticism by referring to the
Holocaust as a myth, a legend that was fabricated
by the United States and Europe to justify the creation
of a Jewish state in Palestine.
In 2006, Iran even hosted a two-day international
conference for likeminded naysayers who also dismiss
the annihilation oI six million Jews as fction or
exaggeration. Addressing the gathering, Ahmadinejad
blamed the Holocaust for all of the turmoil in the
Middle East. He challenged the group to consider,
if the Holocausts truth is ruled out, root causes
of problems and crimes in the Middle East will be
terminated.
This is the same Ahmadinejad who has openly
boasted, Israel will vanish just like the Soviet Union
collapsed, and humanity will be liberated. His stated
goal is the same as Adolph Hitlers Final Solution 60
years ago. In his own words, Israel must be wiped off
the map, and driven into the sea.
What Are Irans Nuclear Capabilities?
For almost twenty years, Iran successfully concealed
its nuclear fuel program until U.S. satellite photos
confrmed its nuclear Iacilities in 2002. This Iorced Iran
to reveal in 2003 its uranium enrichment program and
invite the UN monitoring body, the International Atomic
Energy Agency (IAEA) to visit.
In November 2004, Tehran promised Germany,
France, and Britain that it would cease its uranium
enrichment program. The IAEA approved the agreement,
and Iran avoided UN Security Council intervention. Iran
promptly ignored the agreement and pursued its nuclear
activities, claiming they were for peaceful purposes
only.
On December 23, 2006, the Security Council
unanimously adopted Resolution 1737 (2006), which
imposed sanctions to block the import or export of
sensitive nuclear materials to Iran and Ireeze the fnancial
assets of persons or entities that support Irans nuclear
weapons development. Iran immediately rejected the
resolution, adding that the fIteen countries voting in
favor would regret it.
On March 24, 2007 the Security Council passed
Resolution 1747, which tightened sanctions against
Iran and expanded the freeze on assets and aid,
except for humanitarian purposes. Iran immediately
denounced the resolution as illegal and continued
During World War II, between 1939 and 1945, six million of Europes
nine million Jews were massacred by Nazi Germany.

Triggerman for WW III?

to expand its nuclear program, asserting that it has as
much right as the U.S. and other nations to develop
nuclear capabilities.
Why are sanctions unsuccessful?
For the past six months, the UN sanctions have
failed to curtail Irans nuclear ambitions. By now there
should be a growing realization that the process of
endless dialog and toothless sanctions are ineffective.
Time is on Irans side, and Ahmadinejad knows it. He
watched the same game of diplomacy between the UN
Security Council and North Korea. As the talks dragged
on, North Korea continued to develop its nuclear arsenal
and now claims it has several nuclear devices. Iran is not
far behind.
Even so, the Bush administration is pushing for
increased sanctions, though the Security Council has not
carried out the existing penalties. To Bushs dismay, the
U.S. is losing support
from Russia, China,
and several European
nations, which blame
the U.S. for the lack of
enforcement.
German oIfcials
have also voiced
concern that its role
in placing additional
sanctions against Iran
would harm the German
economy. Germany
notifed its allies in
early September that
Chancellor Angela
Merkel will not publicly
support any further
sanctions against Iran
but would privately
welcome an American
bombing campaign on Irans nuclear facilities.
Does Iran have the capability to destroy Israel?
The Jerusalem Post reported on September 17,
2007 there were six hundred Iranian Shihab-3 missiles
pointed at various targets throughout Israel. According
to the Iranian news website, Assar Iran, Iran will
shoot at Israel 600 missiles if it is attacked, and
'600 missiles will only be the frst reaction.
The Shihab-3 has a range of 1,300 km, and it
can reach anywhere in Israel from Iran. According to a
Middle East Intelligence Bulletin from August 2000, the
Shihab-3 has negligible value as a conventional weapon
due to its lack of target precision. Its true value is its
20 ENDTIMEMAGAZINE | September - October 2007 SubscribeNow| www.endtime.com| Call 1.800.Endtime
ability to deliver nuclear, chemical, or biological agents
of mass destruction.
Former U.S. Speaker of the House of
Representatives Newt Gingrich, is not swayed by
Ahmadinejads claim of pure intentions. The Israeli
people are facing the threat of a nuclear Holocaust,
he warned at a conference held earlier this year by the
Institute For Policy and Strategy.
How are world leaders responding to Irans
latest threat?
In mid-September, French Foreign Minister
Bernard Koucher referred to the situation as, the
Iranian nuclear crisis that has forced the world,
to prepare for the worst, and the worst is war.
Koucher was also quoted by the French newspaper,
Le Figaro, as saying, 'one cannot fnd in the entire world
a crisis greater than this one, referring to Irans open
threat to annihilate Israel
and her allies, namely the
United States. President
Ahmadinejad dismissed
Kouchers remarks
and accused France
of, copying the White
House, and taking on
an American skin.
To the contrary, in a
speaking engagement
at Emory University
in September, former
President Jimmy
Carter stated it seemed
inconceivable that Iran
would commit suicide
by launching missiles at
Israel. He concluded that
the unrest between Israel
and the Palestinians in
Gaza and the West Bank present a greater threat to
the Middle East than Iran.
On the other hand, President Bush believes
Iran is serious about its threats against Israel, which
would throw the Middle East into chaos. Bush has
publicly denounced Irans plans and tried to pressure
Ahmadinejad to abandon his nuclear program aimed at
developing atomic weapons.
The United States Air Force has established a
task Iorce, 'Project Checkmate to plan Ior 'fghting
the next war due to the growing tensions with Iran. It
is led by Brigadier-General Lawrence Stutzriem, who
is assisted by Dr. Lani Kass, a former Israeli military
oIfcer and expert on cyber warIare. They report to
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, President of Iran, addresses

General Michael Moseley who has direct access to the
White House.
A senior intelligence oIfcer reported there are
'two major contingency plans Ior air strikes on Iran.
One is to bomb only the nuclear facilities. The second
option is Ior a greater strike lasting two or three days
and targeting Iran`s military sites. Pentagon strategists
have compiled a list oI 2,000 bombing targets oI Iran`s
nuclear and military facilities if a military showdown
becomes necessary.
How Close Before No Turning Back?
In 2005, Ahmadinejad reportedly told his cabinet
he expected the Hidden Imam to reappear within the
next two years. ThereIore, Ahmadinejad is motivated
to provide the conditions to hasten his savior`s return.
Is it possible Ahmadinejad believes he is destined to
create the apocalypse that ushers in the reappearance
oI the TwelIth Imam?
Fox News recently reported that President Bush
is considering a time frame for military action against
Iran within the next eight to ten months, aIter the
presidential primaries, but beIore the November 2008
elections. Bush does not want to leave oIfce without
insuring that Iran is not capable oI developing a nuclear
weapon. President Bush steps down Irom oIfce in
January 2009.
Should Ahmadinejads Threats Against Israel
Be Taken Seriously?
Some might summarily dismiss Ahmadinejad as
an irrational madman-- and with good reason. After his
speech to the UN General Assembly in the Iall oI 2005,
Ahmadinejad claimed that while he spoke, he was
bathed in a celestial aura and halo. He also reported
that the audience was so captivated by his words that
it watched him with a fxed gaze, apparently unable
to look away. Ahmadinejad described the event this
way: 'I Ielt the atmosphere suddenly change. And Ior
those 27 or 28 minutes, the leaders oI the world did not
blink. It seemed as iI a hand was holding them there,
and it opened their eyes to receive the message Irom
the Islamic Republic.
In his concluding remarks, President
Ahmadinejad invoked Allah to hasten the reappearance
oI the Hidden Imam, the messiah oI Shiite Islam, oI
which Ahmadinejad is a follower. Legend has it that
the TwelIth Imam disappeared in 874 A.D. and is
hiding in a well at the Jamkaran mosque in Iran.
Shortly aIter his election in 2005, President
Ahmadinejad donated the equivalent oI $17 million
dollars oI government Iunds to prepare a shrine to
mark the return oI the Imam. Prior to the TwelIth
Imam`s reappearance, the world will experience death,
destruction, and apocalyptic events. At the appointed
time, the Imam will save the world Irom chaos, convert
Christians to Islam, and establish global Islamic rule.
It would be tempting to write him oII as a total lunatic
except Ior the Iact that Iran is on the verge oI acquiring
apocalyptic weapons, and Ahmadinejad has repeatedly
declared that Israel must be destroyed. During his recent
visit to Columbia University in Upper Manhattan he was
point blank asked, 'Do you or your government seek the
destruction oI Israel, yes or no? Ahmadinejad reIused
to answer but instead complained that Iran is a victim oI
terrorism.
How Does This Line Up With Bible Prophecy?
Iran`s development oI a nuclear bomb, coupled
with Ahmadinejad`s threats to destroy Israel should not
be ignored. His threats are especially ominous in light
oI Revelation 9:13-16. These verses reveal that one third
oI mankind will die during the 6th Trumpet War which
originates Irom the Euphrates River. The Euphrates River
runs through Turkey, Syria, and mostly Iraq where the
U.S. currently has 170,000 troops stationed, trying to
stabilize the region.
Moreover, Revelation 9:17-19 Ioretells that the
third part oI mankind killed will occur as a result oI
fre, smoke, and brimstone. Anyone who has ever seen
pictures oI a nuclear blast can easily recognize there is
plenty oI fre and smokebut what about brimstone?
Brimstone is sulIur. Are we talking about sulIur dioxide
that blocks nerve signals causing heart and lung disease,
cancer and death? Or are we dealing with sulIur mustard
used in chemical warIare, causing blistering oI the skin
and mucous membranes on contact? Neither one is a
desirable choice.
It is certain that a catastrophic war is coming
soon in the Middle East. All oI the fash points are in
place. President Ahmadinejad has repeatedly promised,
just as Hitler did, to eradicate Jewish Israel. He could
accomplish in one day what it took years Ior Hitler to do,
massacre six million Jews.
In a recent CNN documentary, Benjamin
Netanyahu, Iormer Israeli Prime Minister asked
a Holocaust survivor what he had learned from
the experience. The man took little time to reply,
When someone says he is going to exterminate
you, believe him.

Editors note: Many of you have requested
information on what to do if America does become
the target of a nuclear attack. This article is being
made available in response to those requests.
The 6th Trumpet War is expected to be a Nuclear
War. The Bible tells us that the end result of this
war is that one-third of mankind will die. Many
have asked questions about things we might do to
prepare ourselves for this event and its aftermath.
The following information and guidelines are
intended to both educate and aid you in forming
a plan of action so that you and your family might
better cope with those frst days and weeks after a
nuclear strike.
Since so many will perish in this war, the most
important thing anyone can do is to be sure you are
ready to meet the Lord, and help as many others
to be ready as you possibly can. For those who
survive, there are some things you should be aware
of and plan for.
In an all out nuclear war, military strategists
believe that the initial goal of the enemy would be to
knock out communications by detonating a nuclear
weapon above the earths atmosphere to create an
electromagnetic pulse (EMP). It is believed that
an EMP can seriously damage electronic devices
connected to power sources or antennas including
communication systems, computers, electrical
appliances, and automobile or aircraft ignition
systems. According to FEMA, the damage could
range from a minor interruption to actual burnout
of components. Most electronic equipment within
1,000 miles of a high-altitude nuclear detonation
could be affected. (Battery-powered radios with
short antennas generally would not be affected.)
The EMP is unlikely to harm people.
In such a scenario, people could fnd themselves
without the ability to communicate with anyone or
get information on what is happening beyond their
immediate surroundings. It is not possible to know
the day of the week or time of day that a nuclear
strike would occur, therefore it is possible that
family members could be at a variety of locations,
such as work or school, and unable to get home.
Automobiles may not operate, and there would
be no electricity. Therefore, it is in your familys
best interest to formulate a plan of what you will
do during those frst few days and weeks after a
nuclear strike. It could be of some comfort if you
know that a stranded loved one has a planned procedure of
where to go and what to do at given locations after a nuclear
strike.
Targets
Military experts believe that primary targets would be
missile silos, bomber bases, submarine bases, and command
and control centers. Other targets might include major
military, industrial, governmental, transportation, and
population centers.
The effects of a nuclear explosion will vary greatly
depending on weather, geography, size of the weapon, etc.
If the weapon is detonated above ground there will be less
fallout than with a weapon that detonates at or near the
ground. The blast will pulse outward for several miles. For
those who are far enough away to survive the blast, your
immediate need will be for shelter from fallout, and possibly
medical help.
Medical Help
Those survivors who are nearest to the blast
are likely to receive frst, second and even
third degree burns. They may
also receive injuries from
fying debris. Most
survivors will be forced
to live under primitive
medical conditions,
but remember that the
majority of mankind
survived under such
conditions for most
of human history.
The following
information will give
you some simple rules
to follow with some of
the medical needs that
could arise.
1. Prayer is always
in order and should b e
your frst step in any emergency,
medical or otherwise.
2. Remember that radiation
sickness is NOT
contagious! You cant
get sick by helping those
who have been exposed.
Surviving World War III
PRACTI CAL I NFORMATI ON AND
GUI DELI NES FOR SURVI VAL
By Ginger Boerkircher

3. Wounds: Apply only pressure dressings to stop
bleeding unless an artery has been cut. If blood
is spurting from a wound, apply both a pressure
dressing and a windlass-type tourniquet. Loosen
the tourniquet pressure about every 15 minutes, to
allow enough blood to reach the fesh beyond the
tourniquet and keep it alive. There is a fair chance
that clotting under the pressure dressing will stop
blood loss before it becomes fatal.
4. Infected wounds: Do not change dressings frequently.
The formation of white pus shows that white
corpuscles are mobilizing to combat the infection. In
World War I, wounded soldiers in hospitals suffered
agonies having their wounds cleaned and dressed
frequently: many died as a result of such harmful
care. In contrast, before antibiotics became available
late in World War II, casts and dressings on infected
wounds sometimes were not changed for weeks.
5. Pieces of glass
deeply embedded:
Do not probe with
tweezers or a knife
in an attempt to
extract them. Most
glass will come out
when the wounds
discharge pus.
6. Burns: Cover the
area securely with a
clean, dry dressing or
folded cloth. Do not
change the dressing
frequently. For most
burns, the bandage
need not be removed
until the tenth to
fourteenth day.
7. Broken bones: Apply
simple splints to keep the bones from moving. Do not
worry about deformities: most can be corrected later
by a doctor. Do not attempt traction setting of broken
bones.
8. Shock: Keep the victim warm. Place blankets or other
insulation material under him. Do not cover him with
so many blankets that he sweats and suffers harmful
fuid losses.
The severity of radiation sickness will depend upon
the amount of exposure. The human body usually can
repair almost all radiation damage if the daily doses are
not too large. Typical symptoms of radiation sickness
include varying degrees of nausea, diarrhea, and
weakness lasting a day or two in most people, followed
by a recovery time of days to weeks, and then a relapse
which may be worse than the initial symptoms. Full
recovery can take months. If a survivor has been
exposed to enough radiation, death can occur within
days to weeks.
Shelter
The most dangerous emissions from fallout are gamma
rays, and avoiding further exposure is your goal. Simple
fallout shelters will give the most protection, and there
is much information available on the Internet to learn
how to build a simple and inexpensive shelter. Effective
public shelters can be the middle foors of some tall
buildings or parking structures, or below ground level
in most buildings with more than 10 foors.
When the level of radiation decreases enough, you
can begin to go outdoors for short periods of time. But
unless you have the ability to measure the amount of
radiation, you will be unable to know exactly when it
is safe to emerge
from a shelter.
FEMA suggests that
you not begin to
emerge sooner than
two weeks in lower
radiation areas, up
to a month in higher
radiation areas.
I n f o r ma t i o n
from FEMA
( www. f e ma .
gov)
Nuclear
radiation cannot be
seen, smelled, or
otherwise detected
by normal senses.
The three factors for
protecting oneself
from radiation and
fallout are distance, shielding, and time.
Distance - the more distance between you and the
fallout particles, the better. An underground area such
as a home or offce building basement offers more
protection than the frst foor of a building. A foor
near the middle of a high-rise may be better. Flat roofs
collect fallout particles so the top foor is not a good
choice.
Shielding - the heavier and denser the materials - thick
walls, concrete, bricks, books and earth - between you
and the fallout particles, the better.
Time - fallout radiation loses its intensity fairly
rapidly. In time, you will be able to leave a fallout
Atomic Dome in Hiroshima, ruins of building serve as a memorial.

shelter. Radioactive fallout poses the greatest threat
to people during the frst two weeks, by which time
it has declined to about 1 percent of its initial radiation
level.
Any protection, however temporary, is better than
none at all, and the more shielding, distance, and time
you can take advantage of, the better. If you are caught
outside and unable to get inside immediately:
DO NOT look at the fash or freball - it can
blind you.
Take cover behind anything that might offer
protection.
Lie fat on the ground and cover your head. If the
explosion is some distance away, it could take
30 seconds or more for the blast wave to hit.
Take shelter as soon as you can, even if you are many
miles from ground zero - radioactive fallout can be
carried by the winds for hundreds of miles.
Decay rates of the radioactive fallout are the same for
any size nuclear device. However, the amount of fallout
will vary based on the size of the device and its proximity
to the ground. Therefore, it might be necessary for those
in the areas with highest radiation levels to shelter for up
to a month. The heaviest fallout would be limited to the
area at or downwind from the explosion, and 80 percent
of the fallout would occur during the frst 24 hours.
Water and Food
The human body can survive longer without food
than without water, so the need for uncontaminated
water will be a top priority. For the kidneys to eliminate
waste effectively you must drink enough water. It has
been estimated that under cool conditions, a person
could survive for several weeks on as little as 3 pints of
water per day if he eats little food, but it is said that you
should plan for a minimum of 1 gallon of water per day
for each person. Remember that you will need water for
more than just drinking. If you are caught in an area
where there has been no water stored for emergencies,
water from sources such as deep wells and covered
reservoirs, tanks, and containers is the least likely to be
contaminated.
Food stored in sealed dust-tight containers will
not be contaminated. Peeling fruits and vegetables
removes essentially all fallout. It is said that aside
from water, food for babies, sugar, iodized salt,
cooking oil, powdered milk, and foods that require
no cooking, along with a supply of multi-vitamins,
would be of high priority. (Survival plans should not
include dependence on hunting, fshing, or gathering
wild plants)
Some of the items on the list above may raise
questions, but remember that in conditions of poor diet
that could go on for extended periods of time, the body
will begin to develop many unwanted symptoms and
sicknesses when lacking such things as salt, Vitamin C,
fat, etc. Life will be very different after a major nuclear
strike, and it is not known how long it might be before
food and water or other supplies would be readily
available again.
Supplies
Supplies that would be very useful to have with you
in a shelter would include such things as fashlights and
batteries; frst aid kits; bedding; clothing; personal care
items; sanitation supplies including buckets and plastic
bags; and eating utensils. Other items of importance
might include valuables such as money, checkbook,
credit cards, negotiable securities, and important
documents.
Some practical instructions on a variety of subjects
including sanitation are given in the 'Nuclear War
Survival Skills book listed in the further reading
section. Another great summary of things to do can be
found at www.ki4u.com/guide.htm.

As pressure for an international solution to the Middle East problem
mounts with each passing bullet, let us consider what the prophecies
forecast for the times just ahead:
A global leader will pave the way for Israel to build her Third Temple.
Daily sacrices in the temple will begin. There will be a war in heaven.
Satan will be forbidden access to heaven and will no longer be able
to function as the accuser of the brethren. When this happens, the
Bible says that the global leader will walk into Israels temple, stop the
sacrices and claim to be Messiah and God. This event, called in the
Bible the abomination of desolation, will trigger Satans 3 1/2-year
war against the saints. This time of great tribulation is described in
Revelation 13:5-7.
And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and
blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and
two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God,
to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in
heaven. And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and
to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and
tongues, and nations.
It appears that this time of tribulation will come rst upon the Jewish
settlers of Judea, and then will spread from there to Christians the
world over (Revelation 12:13,17). But thats only half of the picture.
The other half, much overlooked, is recorded in Daniel 11:32: And
they that know their God shall be strong and do exploits. Who is this
referring to? Lets look closer.
Daniel 11:31 records the abomination of desolation. That is when Sa-
tan begins his 3 1/2-year power trip. But its also the same time that
two prophets from God receive power from on high for the same 3 1/2
years. This is recorded in Revelation 11:3: And I will give power unto
my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred
and threescore days. The great tribulation will feature the classic
battlegood vs. evil.
The time for the ministry of the Two Witnesses is close. They are cer-
tainly alive on earth right now, but we dont yet know who they are.
The account of the Two Witnesses comes to us sandwiched in the
midst of the account of the Seven Trumpets of
Revelation. Specically, we read of them between the 6th and 7th
Trumpets. Their ministry, therefore, begins after the 6th Trumpet war
and continues until the sounding of the 7th Trumpet.
Much debate has raged over these two special prophets of God. Who
are they?
Is one of the two Elijah?
Some have argued very persuasively that one of the Two
Witnesses must be Elijah. In Malachi 4:5 we have this
prophecy: Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the com-
ing of the great and dreadful day of the Lord.
It is because of this prophecy that the Jewish people have long looked
for Elijah to come, announcing the arrival of the Messiah. Many be-
lieve this will happen during the time of the annual Passover feast.
This is why every Passover meal has an extra place setting for Elijah,
just in case he would appear.
During the 16th and 17th centuries, the Jewish people claimed to their
Turkish occupiers that Elijah would soon come, entering through the
Eastern Gate of the Temple Mount. The prospect of this scared the
Turks of the Ottoman Empire so much that they had masons seal up
the Eastern Gate. It is still sealed to this day. Oddly, the Turks had no
idea that they were fullling an incredible prophecy in Ezekiel 44:1-3.
The prophecy states that the Eastern Gate would be sealed, because
the Lord had entered in by it. (Jesus fullled this prophecy when He
entered through the Eastern Gate during His triumphal entry, one
week before His crucixion.) The prophecy also states that it would
not be opened again until He came back, entering through it again.
The Eastern Gate stands sealed until this very moment, awaiting the
Second Coming of Jesus. The Turks, in an attempt to prevent one
prophecy from being fullled, unknowingly fullled another!
Back to Malachis I will send you Elijah before the coming of the
great and dreadful day of the Lord. Many of the Jewish people of
the 1st Century puzzled over whether or not this man named Jesus
was, in fact, the Messiah. He fed 5,000 with ve loaves and two sh.
He raised the dead, walked on water, opened blind eyes...What more
would Messiah do when He came?
One day the disciples came to Jesus asking, if you are Mes-
siah, then where is Elijah? They knew the prophecy said that Eli-
jah must come before the coming of the great and dreadful day
of the Lord. Jesus answered in Matthew 17:12-13: But I say unto
you, That Elias is come already, and they knew him not, but have
done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise shall also the
Son of man suffer of them. Then the disciples understood that He
spake unto them of John the Baptist. So according to Jesus, the
Elijah prophecy was fullled by the coming of John the Baptist.
Every person must die
Many have insisted that Elijah must be one of the Two Witnesses
because he was taken up to
heaven in a whirlwind and did not experience death. Hebrews 9:27
teaches that it is appointed unto men once to die. They contend that
Elijahs required death will be accomplished when he dies as one of
the Two Witnesses.
There is a glaring aw in this logic. Scripture teaches that the saved
on earth at the time of the rapture will never see death. I Corinthians
15:51-54 tells us that we shall not all sleep (die), but that we shall all
be changed from mortal to immortality at the last trump. Once we are
immortal, we will certainly not be able to come back later and die. If
we dont have to come back to die after the rapture, then Elijah cer-
tainly doesnt have to come back and die either.
Are they Moses and Elijah?
Another reason many have thought Elijah would be one of the Two
Witnesses is found in Matthew 17:1-3. It says, And after six days
Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them
up into an high mountain apart, And was transgured before them:
and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was
white as the light. And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and
Elias talking with him. Here, on the Mount of Transguration, both
Moses and Elijah appeared with Jesus.
Revelation 11:4 describes the Two Witnesses as the two olive
trees and the two candlesticks, which stand before the God of the
earth. Since Moses and Elijah appeared with Jesus on the Mount of
Transguration, many have concluded that they are these two olive
trees.

The Two Witnesses: Who are They? (continued)
Another factor that adds credence to the possibility is found by study-
ing Revelation 11:5-6. In these verses we nd the Two Witnesses per-
forming the same miracles that Moses and Elijah were noted for during
their ministries. If any man tries to hurt them, re will proceed out of their
mouths and devour their enemies. Remember that Elijah pulled down
re from heaven and devoured his enemies at one point. The Two
Witnesses will have power to cause a drought for the 3 1/2 years of
their ministry. Elijah had the power to do the same. They will have
power to turn waters into blood. Moses did that in EgyptPlague #1.
The Two Witnesses will have the power to smite the earth with all
plagues. This again reminds of the ministry of Moses.
Now for the problems with this view: The Bible states that Moses died
and God buried him. If Moses were to be one of the Two Witnesses,
he would have to be reincarnated and then die the second time. Elijah
would also have to be reincarnated since by now he would be nearly
3,000 years old.
We dont have one example of reincarnation in the Bible. We also
dont have any record where a person from a previous generation
came back to earth to preach. These factors preclude, in my mind,
the possibility of Moses and Elijah returning to earth as the Two Wit-
nesses.
Do Two Witnesses symbolize Israel and the
church?
Another very prominent opinion states that the Two Witnesses repre-
sent the Jewish and the Gentile church. This is not illogical since sym-
bols are used prominently throughout the book of Revelation. Here is
the reason some people believe this theory:
In Romans 11:24-25, the Apostle Paul refers to Israel as the tame
olive tree and to the Gentiles as a wild olive tree. Revelation 11:4 says
the Two Witnesses are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks
standing before the God of the earth. From these two passages it has
been deduced that there would be, in the endtime, a Gentile church
and a Jewish church witnessing in the earth.
To some, this is quite a persuasive argument. However, the prophecy
concerning the Two Witnesses calls them two prophets. It also says
they will be killed and lie in the street for three and one-half days. I see
no logical way that a nation or a church could be killed and lay in the
streets. These two prophets will be two literal men.
Conclusion
The Two Witnesses of Revelation 11 will not be the Jewish and the
Gentile church. They will not be Moses and Elijah reincarnated.
John the Baptist was not literally Elijah; yet Jesus said that he ful-
lled the Elijah prophecy because he came in the spirit and power of
Elijah. Likewise, the Two Witnesses will be two ordinary people that
apparently come in the spirit and power of Moses and Elijah. These
two prophets are almost certainly alive on this earth right now, and
are being prepared by God for the ministry for which they have been
ordained.
The time for the revelation of the Antichrist and False Prophet is near.
These two men will be Satans two witnesses.
God has an answer for Satans master plan. He will present His Two
Witnesses to the world. They will preach the full truth of Gods Word for
three and one half years. They will then die in Jerusalem. After 3 1/2
days, they will be resurrected and caught up into the sky.
Yes, Satans messengers will deceive the world
and corrupt the people of the world by their
atteries. But, the people who know their God shall be strong and do
exploits!
