The world has been in the last days since Peter preached his sermon on the first Pentecost following the ascension of Jesus (Acts 2:17), and current events seem to indicate that it is now down to the last hours of the last days.
First, in early Nov. 2019, Pres. Trump notified the UN that the U.S. is withdrawing from the Paris Climate Change agreement.
Pres. Trump said the agreement was less about changing the climate and more about redistributing the wealth of the U.S. (In addition to that, in my opinion, Climate Change is also a scam and a scare tactic to bring in a world government).
America's withdrawal will go into effect in one year.
Second, Qatar gives the PA and Hamas 30 million dollars a month, but Qatar recently told the PA and Hamas that Qatar will probably stop giving them the money at the end of 2019.
This will come on top of the massive cuts Pres. Trump has made, and it will increase the pressure on the PA and Hamas to accept the economic benefits of Pres. Trump's "Deal of the Century" and make a peace treaty more likely.
Third, Israel's two main parties are in a standoff on creating a new government, but there is one thing that both agree on: Israel should annex the Jordan Valley and declare Israeli sovereignty over it.
This will cause the Fig Tree (Israel) to put on leaves (grow; Matt. 24:32).
Fourth, Israel will be wealthy in the latter years and latter days (Ezek. 38:11-12).
Large deposits of oil and natural gas have been discovered off the coast of Israel.
It has taken a while, but Israel has finally started pumping, processing and selling product from one of those large deposits.
Pres. Trump has convinced the EU to stop buying their oil and natural gas from Russia and to start buying it from Israel, and that has Vladimir Putin upset.
This will hurt Russia financially and make Israel richer.
On top of this, an international oil company called Energean recently announced that they had greatly underestimated the amount of oil and natural gas that they have discovered off the coast of Israel.
According to a business-oriented newspaper in Israel called Calcalist, Israel's currency is now the strongest currency in the world.
Imagine that: Israel has gone from a wasteland in 1948 to the strongest currency in the world (should I add with cattle and goods, silver and gold).
Fifth, according to several Scriptures, all of the Jews will return to the Promised Land when Messiah comes (I think this refers to the Second Coming; Matt. 24:21).
Several prominent rabbis have signed a document saying that all of the Jews on earth are commanded by Scripture (a mitzvah) to return to the Promised Land.
One rabbi said, "It is clear that we are quickly approaching a watershed point in Jewish history when everything concerning the Jewish people will change."
I don't know how the Jews will respond, but I suspect that most secular or non-religious Jews will ignore this command, but some religious Jews will take it seriously and soon start making preparations to move to the Promised Land.
Sixth, the Jews have already built a railroad, they are now building hotels and restaurants, and they just voted to build a cable car to move 3,000 visitors per hour to the Wailing Wall below the Temple Mount.
3,000 visitors per hour is 30,000 visitors in a 10-hour day, and that doesn't include the visitors that will arrive by vehicles, buses, etc.
Opponents will try to stop it, but it is clear that Israel is preparing to accommodate multitudes of visitors to the Temple Mount (and likely to a rebuilt Temple).
Seventh, on Sept. 11, 2001, terrorists attacked the World Trade Center Towers in New York. Pres. Bush could have pointed out that Islam divides the world into two parts: The Domain of the Faithful (Muslims) and the Domain of Those that Islam is at War With (all non-Muslims), but Pres. Bush chose to appease Islam, refer to Islam as a religion of peace, etc., because he didn't want to alienate all Muslims.
Pres. Obama followed by removing terms like "Islamic terrorists," "jihad," etc., from military training manuals; and he ordered the State Dept., Intelligence agencies and the FBI not to use those terms.
Dogs are considered to be unclean animals in Islam; and Pres. Trump said Al-Baghdadi died like a dog, like a coward, whimpering and crying.
Instead of trying to appease Islam, Pres. Trump called it like it is.
The man that murdered people, raped women, and enslaved women and children died like the unclean animal that he was.
It is an understatement to say that Pres. Trump is not the most tactful person on earth, but his language was more truthful than Bush or Obama; and it is important to face up to what some Muslims want to do (establish a global Islamic caliphate).
Eighth, Iran is seeking nuclear weapons because Iran wants to establish an Islamic caliphate.
Iran has stepped up her enrichment of nuclear materials and could have enough nuclear material to produce a bomb in two to three months (one year at the most).
It is important to have someone (even if he lacks tact) in the White House that knows what a dog is when he sees one because Iran calls the U.S. the great Satan, and time is running out on this issue.
By the way, it was recently reported that the U.S. and Russia are both building up their forces in Syria.
The Battle of Gog and Magog appears to be getting close.
Ninth, it is my opinion that world leaders will form ten regions or ten trading blocks of nations and eventually merge them into ten political blocks of nations with a leader over each one that will become the Ten kings, horns, toes, etc.
The EU and USMCA are examples of regional trading blocks.
A regional group of nations called the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN regional group) has just concluded a treaty with China and five other nations that covers one-third of the trade on earth.
Understand that ten kings or ten horns will rise, and then the eleventh or little horn (the Antichrist) will rise.
God can speed this up or slow it down as he sees fit.
