At 0943hrs., on Saturday, November 6, 1999, Prophet Hansen received the following prophecy from the Lord:

"Russia, oh Russia...Oh how I have longed to love you as a bear loves her young; to protect you, and feed, and guide you, and bless you. Yet, all I can do is blind you and curse you, for you have rejected me and my people, and now I am preparing to totally reject you as a nation. I will curse you with plagues, disease, death. The death angels will be released against you for you have tormented me with your ever-babbling nonsense and merciless torture of my people.

Prepare Russia, for the end is near. For your name will no longer be known amongst the nations as a mighty warrior, but as a defeated, humiliated and hated foe. You have cursed me and my people. Now my anger will take revenge for my name's sake and for the blood of my people that you have slaughtered.

Oh, Church in Russia, come out of her and her sins of adultery and be covered with my blood, or let the blood of my saints damn you, judge you and destroy you. For my mercy and grace have reached their limits and judgment is falling., thus saith the Lord God Jesus Christ who you are now in battle against."

History of Russia:

Past Russia: By the 7th century B.C., the northern shore of the Black Sea and the Crimea were controlled by Scythians. The Scythians were displaced by the Sarmatians in the 3rd century B.C. The Turkic Khazars built up a powerful state in the 7th century and Eastern Bulgars established their empire in the Volga region in the 8th century. By the 9th century, Eastern Slavs had settled in Ukraine, Belarus, and in the regions of Novgorod and Smolensk. The chief Slavic tribes in South Russia were dominated by the Khazars.

The origin of the Russian state coincides with the arrival in the 9th century of Scandinavian traders and warriors, the Varangians. Tradition says the Viking Rurik came to Russia in 862 and founded the first Russian dynasty in Novgorod. Rurik's successor, Oleg, transferred his residence to Kiev in 882. Oleg united the Eastern Slavs and freed them from Khazar suzerainty, and signed a commercial treaty in 911 with the Byzantine Empire. Christianity was made the state religion by Vladimir I (reigned 980-1015), who adopted the Greek Orthodox rite. Vladimir "the Saint" was converted in 988.

The Reformation in Switzerland began in 1523, led by Huldrych Zwingli, priest of the Great Minster church in Zurich since 1518. Zurich adopted the Protestant religion, joined by five other cantons, while the remaining five remained Catholic.

In 1547, at the age of 17, Ivan IV (Ivan the Terrible) was crowned czar of all Russia. He crushed the power of rival princes and boyars (great landowners), but Russia remained largely medieval until the reign of Peter the Great (1689-1725). Catherine the Great (1762-1796) expanded Russian territory, acquiring the Crimea, Ukraine, and part of Poland. During the reign of Alexander I (1801-1825), Napoleon's attempt to subdue Russia was defeated and new territory was gained. Alexander II (1855-1881) pushed Russia's borders to the Pacific and into central Asia.

In March 1917, disorders broke out in Petrograd (renamed Leningrad and then St. Petersburg). Nicholas II was forced to abdicate on March 15, 1917, and he and his family were killed by revolutionaries on July 16, 1918. A provisional government under successive Prime Ministers, Prince Lvov and Alexander Kerensky, lost ground to the Bolshevik wing of the Socialist Democratic Labor Party. On November 7, 1917, the Bolshevik Revolution, engineered by Vladimir Lenin and Leon Trotsky, overthrew the Kerensky government, and authority was vested in a Council of People's Commissars, with Lenin as prime minister.

The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) was established on December 30, 1922. The death of Lenin on January 21, 1924 precipitated a struggle between Joseph Stalin and Trotsky. Trotsky was dismissed as commissar of war in 1925 and banished from the Soviet Union in 1929. He was murdered in Mexico City on August 21, 1940 by a political agent.

Stalin became Prime Minister on May 6, 1941. Stalin sent millions of Soviets who did not conform to the Stalinist ideal to forced-labor camps and he persecuted his country's vast number of ethnic groups, especially Jews and Ukrainians. Soviet historian Roy Medvedev estimated that about 20 million died from starvation, executions, forced collectivization, and life in the labor camps under Stalin's rule.

Soviets were friendly at first toward Germany and antagonistic toward Britain and France. Then, after Hitler's rise to power in 1933, became anti-Fascist and pro-League of Nations. The USSR took an abrupt turn on August 24, 1939, by signing of a nonaggression pact with Nazi Germany. The Soviet-German collaboration ended with an attack by Hitler on June 22, 1941, which seized 500,000 square miles of Russian territory.

After the war, the Soviet Union, United States, Great Britain, and France divided Berlin and Germany into four zones of occupation, which led to immediate antagonism between the Soviet and Western powers, culminating in the Berlin blockade in 1948. The USSR's tightening control over Communist states was dubbed the "Iron Curtain" by Winston Churchill. It marked the beginning of the cold war that pitted the U.S. and the USSR against each other for the next 45 years. Stalin died on March 6, 1953.

Nikita S. Khrushchev (1958-1964) was the new power emerging in the Kremlin. Khrushchev formalized the eastern European system into a Council for Mutual Economic Assistance (Comecon) and a Warsaw Pact Treaty Organization as a counterweight to NATO. The Soviet Union exploded a hydrogen bomb in 1953, developed an intercontinental ballistic missile by 1957, sent the first satellite into space (Sputnik I) in 1957, and put Yuri Gagarin in the first orbital flight around Earth in 1961. Khrushchev was forced into retirement in October, 1964, and was replaced by Leonid I. Brezhnev as first secretary of the party and Aleksei N. Kosygin as premier.

On November 10, 1982, Leonid Brezhnev died. Yuri V. Andropov, former head of the KGB, became his successor. He died in February1984. Konstantin U. Chernenko, a 72-year-old party stalwart who had been close to Brezhnev, succeeded him. Chernenko died on March 10, 1985. Chosen to succeed him as Soviet leader was Mikhail S. Gorbachev.

Gorbachev introduced sweeping political and economic reforms, bringing glasnost and perestroika, "openness" and "restructuring," to the Soviet system. He established warmer relations with the West, ended the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan, and announced that the Warsaw Pact countries were free to pursue their own political agendas. Gorbachev was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1990 for his contributions to ending the cold war.

Boris Yeltsin, president of the Russian SSR, began challenging the authority of the federal government and resigned from the Communist Party in 1990. On August 29, 1991, an attempted coup against Gorbachev was orchestrated. Yeltsin's defiant actions during the coup - he barricaded himself in the Russian parliament and called for national strikes - resulted in Gorbachev's reinstatement. In his last months as head of the Soviet Union, Gorbachev dissolved the Communist Party and proposed the formation of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), which gave most of the Soviet Socialist Republics their independence, binding them together in a primarily economic federation. Russia and ten other former Soviet republics joined the CIS on December 21, 1991. Gorbachev resigned on December 25, and Yeltsin became president of the newly established Russian Republic.

Boris Yeltsin resigned on December 31, 1999, and Vladimir Putin became the acting president. On March 26, 2000, Putin won the presidential election with about 53% of the vote. In August 2000 the Russian government was criticized for its handling of the Kursk disaster, a nuclear submarine accident that left 118 sailors dead.

On October 23, 2002, Chechen rebels seized a Moscow theater and detained 763 people, including 3 Americans. Wired with explosives, the rebels demanded that the Russian government end the war in Chechnya. Government forces stormed the theater the next day, after releasing a gas into the theater that killed all the rebels and more than 100 hostages.

During 2003, there were 11 bomb attacks against Russia believed to have been orchestrated by Chechen rebels. In April 2003 reformist politician, Sergei Yushenkov, became the third outspoken critic of the Kremlin to be assassinated in five years.

Present Russia Putin was reelected president in March 2004, with 70% of the vote. International election observers considered the process less than democratic. In September 2004, Russia endorsed the Kyoto Protocol on climate change. It was the final endorsement needed to put the protocol into effect worldwide.

Former Chechen president and rebel leader Aslan Maskhadov was killed by Russian special forces on March 8, 2005. In February 2007, Putin dismissed the president of Chechnya, Alu Alkhanov, and appointed Ramzan Kadyrov, a security official and the son of former Chechen president Akhmad, who was killed by rebels in 2004.

Alexander Litvinenko, a former KGB agent who has been critical of the Kremlin, died from poisoning by a radioactive substance in November 2006. On his deathbed, he accused Putin of masterminding his murder. Former Russian president Boris Yeltsin died in April 2007.

In December, 2007 Putin endorsed Dmitri Medvedev in the presidential election. Medvedev won the March 2008 presidential election with 67% of the vote. On April 15, 2008, Putin was chosen as chairman of the United Russia party and agreed to become prime minister. On May 6, 2008, Dmitry Medvedev was sworn in as president.

In August 2008, fighting broke out between Georgia and its two breakaway regions, South Ossetia and Abkhazia. Russia sent hundreds of troops to support the enclaves, launched airstrikes, and occupied the Georgian city of Gori. At the end of August, after a cease-fire agreement between Russia and Georgia was signed, Medvedev severed diplomatic ties with Georgia, officially recognized South Ossetia and Abkhazia as independent regions, and pledged military assistance from Russia.

In November 2008, Erosi Kitsmarishvili, a former Georgian diplomat to Moscow, testified that the Georgian government was responsible for starting the conflict with Russia. Kitsmarishvili stated that Georgian officials told him that they planned to start a war and were supported by the U.S. government.

On March 24, 2010, the United States and Russia agreed to lower the limit on deployed strategic warheads by 25% and launchers by 50%, and to implement a new inspection regime. President Obama and President Medvedev signed the treaty, called New Start, on April 8 in Prague.

Two female suicide bombers detonated bombs in two Moscow subways stations, killing at least 39 people in March 2010. Doku Umarov, a former Chechen separatist and the self-proclaimed emir of the north Caucasus, claimed responsibility for masterminding the attack. Two days later, two explosions killed 12 people in the north Caucasus region of Dagestan.

In June 2010, the FBI announced it had infiltrated a Russian spy ring that had agents operating undercover in several cities in the United States. Ten people were arrested and charged with espionage. Days later, the U.S. and Russia completed a prisoner exchange, with 12 suspected spies deported to Russia and four men accused of spying on the West were sent to the United States.

Putin announced in September 2011 that he would run for president as the candidate of the United Russia party. Putin and President Medvedev will swap positions, with Medvedev assuming the role as head of the party and becoming prime minister. Putin also announced plans for the Eurasian Union, which would include countries that were formerly part of the Soviet Union.

In November 2011, Georgia and Russia agreed to a Swiss-mediated proposal that allows for the monitoring of trade flow between the two countries. The agreement allows Russia to join the World Trade Organization (WTO).

The December 4, 2011 parliamentary elections sparked protests. International and local monitors condemned the election as fraudulent. United Russia received nearly 50 percent of the vote, but lost 77 seats. Monitors said that United Russia would have lost more seats were it not for ballot-box stuffing and voting irregularities. Over 40,000 Russians rallied near the Kremlin on December 10. It was the largest anti-Kremlin protest since the early 1990s. Activists called for Putin's resignation and denounced the election results.

On December 12, billionaire industrialist Mikhail D. Porkhorov announced his plan to run for president against Putin. Porkhorov owns many businesses in Russia as well as the New Jersey Nets NBA franchise in the United States. In his announcement, Porkhorov said, "I made a decision, probably the most serious decision in my life: I am going to the presidential election."

On December 24, around 80,000 people protested in Moscow against the recent parliamentary election. It was the biggest demonstration yet and the first with two high-level figures in attendance. Aleksei L. Kudrin, a former Finance Minister, gave a speech expressing support for the protestors' demands. Mikhail D. Porkhorov was also in the crowd.

In February 2012, Russian and Ukrainian intelligence worked together to stop an assassination attempt against Vladimir Putin. Two men were arrested in Odessa after an apartment explosion. A third would-be assassin was killed in the explosion. Officials said the men were sent by Doku Umarov, a Chechen terrorist leader.

On March 4, 2012, Vladimir Putin won the presidential election. Observers from the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe challenged the election, saying Putin won because he had no competition and government spending at his disposal. The United States and European Union called for an investigation into fraud allegations. Thousands of demonstrators in Moscow took to the streets, chanting, "Russia without Putin." A similar demonstration happened in St. Petersburg. Police arrested protestors who refused to leave.

On March 1, 2014, Vladimir Putin dispatched troops to Crimea, which surrounded Ukrainian military bases and took over government buildings and airports. The move sparked international outrage and condemnation. U.S. President Barack Obama called the move a "breach of international law."

Putin signed a treaty stating that Russia had annexed Crimea on March 18. After signing the treaty, Putin gave a speech defending his move. Neither the U.S. nor the European Union recognized Crimea as part of Russia.

On March 21, 2014, the European Union and Ukraine signed a portion of the EU Association Agreement which lended political support to Ukraine. Ukraine withdrew its military from Crimea on March 24. The UN General Assembly passed a resolution on March 27 declaring Russia's annexation of Crimea illegal. One hundred countries voted in favor, 11 voted against, and 58 abstained. On the same day, the International Monetary Fund agreed to loan Ukraine $18 billion as long as the country implemented austerity measures, and the U.S. Congress approved a $1 billion aid package.

On April 17, 2014, in Geneva, representatives from the U.S., Russia, Ukraine, and the EU reached an agreement stating that all illegal armed groups would lay down their arms and all buildings seized illegally would be surrendered. Both sides agreed to end the violence and intolerance, with anti-Semitism being singled out. Russia did not commit to withdrawing troops from the Ukrainian border and pro-Russian separatists refused to vacate buildings.

The U.S. announced sanctions on April 28 on seven Russian individuals and 17 companies with close ties to Putin. The EU followed suit with sanctions.

On May 7, 2014, Putin announced the withdrawal of troops from the Ukrainian border and urged separatists to abandon plans for a referendum on autonomy. Pro-Russian separatists said they would hold a referendum anyway. The referendums on autonomy were held in Donetsk and Luhansk on May 11 with both provinces overwhelmingly approving them.

The Future of Europe:
8.11.2000

Man versus God is the battle that the majority of Europeans are in. Europe has now become the dark continent where most people live their lives in direct violation of the laws of God (Jesus Christ). Men have tried to eradicate even the knowledge of God by burning Bibles, closing churches and persecuting true Christians. Traditions, myths, fairy tales, philosophies, science, medicine, religions, sports etc., has taken the place of obedience to the Holy Scriptures (Colossians 2:8). Humanism is simply man choosing his own set of values, beliefs and morality instead of submitting to God's standards. Humanism or secularism in the Bible is called "idolatry".

Man wants to constantly blame God for all his misfortunes and the injustice found in society. Men constantly make statements showing their total ignorance of the Word of God and God's character. For example, "If God existed then why did he allow Hitler to kill millions of Jews," or, "If God exists why is there so much needless fighting and countless wars; why the rapes, incest and poverty etc." The answer is so very simple yet so difficult for the proud to understand.

The Bible tells us that people's pride make them unable to understand basic truth. Pride causes rebellion and rejects truth so a spirit of deception takes over. 2 Thessalonians 2:10-12 reads, "And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness." The truth is that God is not ruling the world today, man is. Man is responsible for the wars, rapes and deaths not God. You first must understand how you are made to be able to understand why God does not interfere with your decisions. But, because God does not interfere with your decisions, you cannot blame him for your problems. If God did intervene, would not you then blame Him for being a tyrant and making you a robot? Men must face the truth; they cannot have it both ways. Either God interferes in our lives thus making us inhuman without free choice to govern our own destiny, or God allows for free choice of decisions (giving the possibility of real love and obedience). Genesis 1:27, "So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them." People are totally different than the animals. God breathed his Holy Spirit into man thus morality. Genesis 1:26, "And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth." People have a conscience, knowing good from evil intuitively. Animals perform by instinct. God made man to have sex for pleasure, intimacy, fellowship and reproduction. The only restrictions placed upon man by God is that sex is to be within the confines of marriage and that man is responsible for the life that he chooses to create during that sexual experience (Psalms 127:3). Once again we must understand that man is created like God. Man's very constitution is made like God so man cannot go against the components of his very fabric, lest he breaks the laws of his own creation and starts to self-destruct as glass, rubber or any other creation deteriorates and breaks when used improperly. Man is made to experience the utmost in happiness, fulfillment, satisfaction and enjoyment when having sex with his lifelong partner in marriage. Genesis 2:18, 21-24 God said, "...It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a help meet for him... And the Lord God, caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh." Emotional problems (psychosomatic diseases), physical diseases, mental sicknesses and spiritual death result when men tamper with the way they were created.

Immorality blasphemes marriage as an institution created by God to protect the sanctity of marriage and sexual intercourse. Immorality is a manifestation of idolatry which is rebellion against God and subtly destroys a person and nation as a beast mentality starts to replace the human soul from the living attributes of God. Marriage has responsibilities toward one another so a person doesn't become totally selfish (a beast), which is total insensitivity to the needs of anyone other than himself. Immorality manifests its filthy destruction upon the human race (soul) of mankind in the following different forms: fornication, adultery, homosexuality, lesbianism, cross-dressing, incest, sodomy, rape, bestiality, prostitution, pornography, etc.

People are so hypocritical. They want to govern their own affairs yet they want to blame God for the consequences of their decisions. People must take responsibility for their decisions and actions. God is not to blame for Hitler killing 6 millions Jews. People are to blame for voting him into office and not rising up against his anti-human actions. Nations once again are made up of people and they are also to blame for not stopping him sooner. God is not responsible for the poverty in the countries today. Selfish leaders and people are to blame for wanting more than others have and having no real compassion on society other than lying to people to get voted into office so they can use their position to advance their own lives. In the Bible, Jesus was kind to the woman caught in adultery. He did not judge her or condemn her but He forgave her and told her to go and sin no more. But to the religious leaders who were twisting the word of God to control the people, he was harsh and openly rebuked them (Matthew 23:1-39). All true prophets in the Scriptures used strong harsh words for rebuking both religious and governmental leadership. (Jeremiah 12:10; 14:13-16; 23:1-3,11-32; 1 Kings 18:17-18; 21:17-24; John 3:1-10; Luke 3:19-20; etc.) Leadership is responsible for the problems people suffer today in their nations not God. And people are responsible for electing or allowing the leaders to rule over them (1 Samuel 8:6-22).

COMMUNISM crushes the human spirit so people cannot become what God intended them to be consequently producing people that lack in ambition and creativity. CAPITALISM exploits the human spirit to depravity, debauchery, excess and extremes in selfishness, lusts and desires. People become gluttonous without genuine compassion, yet hypocritically involved in different charities to deceive their conscience of the selfishness they really want and enjoy. Selfishness that can justify the killing of a helpless baby inside the mothers womb because the mother doesn't want to take responsibility for her actions, and now wants to kill another human so she can continue to live a self pleasing life as this new human being might interfere with her own life. And now this self- deceived hypocrite wants to be involved in feeding the orphans or some other charitable cause as long as it does not interfere with her life as she already has killed one human being (her unborn baby) that would have interrupted her life. SOCIALISM can never work on earth with men in leadership as the leaders abuse their power and use the people to advance their own agendas, vanities, lusts and power.

Under Communism, Capitalism and Socialism, the humanist, the atheist and the religious develop the personalities, values and habits of the beast mentality. They become gluttonous, pious, proud, arrogant, self centered, biased, jealous, envious. They lie, cheat, steal, gossip, cause dissension, bitterness and strife. They create fights, strife and discord with bitterness and unforgiveness. They twist the Scriptures, picking and choosing what they want to use to manipulate people and live the rebellious lifestyle of a humanist or idolater (Ephesians 5:3-6).

2 Timothy 3:16 tells us that, "All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:" The Protestant Bible is the literal word of God, given by God to be studied and used as the supreme source for people to live their lives while on earth. Revelation 22:18-19, gives a severe warning to anyone not to add or subtract from the Scriptures lest he be eternally damned. The Scriptures (Jesus Christ) is the only way for peace on earth, while all other methods cause mankind's problems and eventually eternal death (separation from God when a person dies on earth).

As we read earlier, human beings were made in the image of God. Galatians 5:22-24 tells us the people who are not living in idolatry (humanism) but instead obey the commandments of God in the Scriptures, have the Holy Spirit ruling them which produces the following personality and characteristics: "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts." Consequently, utopia will only happen when people who are led by the Holy Spirit are governed by Jesus Christ. This type of government is called a Theocracy and it will be initiated after the battle of Armageddon when Jesus returns to earth to rescue His bride from a man ruled earth (Revelation 16:16-21 and chapters 17-20).

How do human beings created in the image of God with His character and personality, values, beliefs and morality change into an intelligent animal? How do we change into a beast mentality and will finally be led by the Beast of Revelation chapter 13? The answer is found in Romans 1:19-32; "Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath showed it unto them (instinctively people know there is a God since they are made in God's image). For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse (people have no excuse for not knowing God as the entire creation speaks of God's reality. If man chooses to ignore the evidence it is a matter of choice of that particular person as Scripture tells us that man can know God if he chooses). Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish hearts was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools (the atheist, agnostic and leaders who try and govern society aside from following the Scriptures): And changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and four-footed beasts, and creeping things (different religions such as Hinduism etc). Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves (homosexuality). Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, (humanism which is idolatry) who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature (lesbianism): And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly (sodomy), and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which is meet (diseases, gonorrhea, syphilis, AIDS etc.). And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient (Ephesians 5:4; filthiness, foolish talking, jesting). Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who, knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them."

Galatians 5:19-21 tells us the character of a person who rejects Jesus and the Holy Spirit cannot rule their life: "Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these, adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies (doctrines and traditions taught by religious and church leaders that are not substantiated in the Scriptures yet made sacred by a pastor or priest), envyings, murders, drunkenness, revelings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God."

Ladies and gentlemen, the problems in the world today are created by people who have rejected the way they were created and instead of living as human beings in God's likeness (character and values/morality) they now have chosen their own standards and have decreased to the standard of the animal kingdom or beast mentality. We are not ruled by God in today's world. The majority of our leaders both politically and religiously including most church leaders have adapted the beast philosophy, morality and beliefs. They pass laws in parliament which violate the Scriptures, thus they are guilty of idolatry which is one of the sins which bring judgment on a person or society.

Anti-christ stands for lawlessness (1 John 4:1-3), and there is lawlessness in most of the leaders throughout Europe. Both politically, religiously and within most churches, men make their own laws, standards and morality. They even change the laws of God in the Bible to please the rebellious masses or to control them as the scribes and Pharisees did, which Jesus strongly condemned.

Idolatry and immorality bring deterioration on a person or nation when the majority of people within that particular nation are guilty of these two forms of rebellion against God. The third crime which together brings certain destruction upon the individual or nation is described in the Scriptures as "the murder of the innocents" (Exodus 23:6-7; Psalms 106:38-41; Hosea 4:1-6; Leviticus 20:2-6 etc.). Israel became corrupted by the other religions present around them and they legally killed their firstborn by giving them to Molech as a sacrifice. Today people give their firstborn, and many times their second and third born, as a sacrifice to themselves to live the way they want in the sin of abortion. God makes it clear in Scripture (Psalm 139:13-16) that life begins at conception and that he has a special regard for the baby (embryo).

The world is moving fast toward the creation of a "New World Order" but, before it can be initiated the world will see a nuclear war. The "land for peace" plan by Israel and her enemies will fail. For when The Arab League and the PLO get all the land they can get from Israel peacefully, they plan to take the rest by war.

The Prophetic Vision reports that "according to a recent poll conducted by the website Islam On-line, 86.7% of the Arabic and Islamic world does not consider an Israeli withdrawal from Golan and South Lebanon sufficient reason for making peace. 66% consider the Palestinian question and the status of Jerusalem to be the essence of the conflict... What will happen now? The Russian people have elected a question mark. Putin has promised to restore law and order to a chaotic, crime ridden country, but how? His theory is, 'You have to hit first and hard, so that your opponent will not get to his feet.' He applied this to the destruction of Chechnya, Russia's version of NATO's intervention in Kosovo. Serving as a vent for pent-up public frustration after years of economic decline, diminishing influence abroad and international humiliation by the US, Putin's action is immensely popular with the Russian people. The first decree signed by acting president Vladimir Putin in January was a new National Security Doctrine lowering the threshold for the use of nuclear weapons. It allows Russia to use her vast nuclear arsenal to repel armed aggression. At the same time, with 75% of Russia's current conventional weaponry obsolete, Putin increased military investment by 50%. Russia is currently developing a new generation of low-yield weapons for precision non-strategic strikes, 10 years in advance of anything in the West. Where does the money come from? The IMF?...Russia's new military doctrine (14 January 2000), confirms China as her strategic ally, determined to resist US global dominance."

Russia and some of her allies are planning to move into the middle east against Israel. Russia and The United States will exchange a nuclear attack against each other. Out of the chaos, the New World Order will arise led eventually by "the man of sedition", The Anti-christ. Read Ezekiel chapters 38-39; the books of Daniel, Zechariah, Revelation and others.

2 Timothy 3:1-17 describe the character of people and how they will behave "in the last days." When people reject the laws of God through the Scriptures; when they reject the Author of Life and the future ruler of the world, Jesus Christ. Men turn into a beast until they finally accept and are ruled by The Beast of Revelation chapter 13.

2 Timothy 3:12-14 tells Christians that before Jesus returns, which is during the battle of Armageddon in the last days, that they will suffer persecution. Before the book of Revelation is opened and during that time Christians will face persecution for Jesus (Revelation 6:9-11). There is no way around it unless you compromise to avoid being scoffed at and/or rejected. But then the Scriptures are so very clear in Mark 8:38, "Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and my words, in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels."

We are in the last generation

In the world's history there has never been a generation as this. People today travel by jet around the world in one day where until recently men traveled by foot, animal or small boat. Today, mankind can literally blow themselves up through nuclear warfare whereas prior to this time the world's civilization was never in danger of being destroyed by bows and arrows, spears, swords etc. Today we have the technology to control mankind through identifying them by their birth date, identification numbers etc., through the computers so nobody can buy or sell unless they agree to the conditions, which will soon be implemented. All nations are working towards world communications and cash is being replaced with cards and finally a mark on a persons right hand or forehead (Revelation 13:16-18).

Yes, we are living just prior to a world government and Jesus Christ himself returning. The United States of America's stock market will collapse as well as their economy. Shortly after there will be a nuclear war resulting in the formation of the New World Order. Great plagues are coming upon the world as described in the book of Revelation chapters 6-19. Billions of people will die in all. But those who are following Jesus Christ can be free from fear as nothing can touch them unless God allows it, and if he does, than he gives them the grace and strength to move into eternal life immediately (Exodus 8:20-23; 9:23-26; 12:12-13; Revelation 7:1-3; Daniel 3:16-28; 6:16-23; Psalm 34:7; Luke 22:40-44; Philippians 4:13 etc.).
