1 © 2005 Pastor Brett Peterson – Prophecy Series What happens next…

2 © 2005 Pastor Brett Peterson – Sir Isaac Newton was a Christian, and he was a prophet. He foretold our prophecy series! “About the time of the end, a body of men will be raised up who will turn their attention to the prophesies, and insist on their literal interpretation, in the midst of much clamor and opposition.”

3 © 2005 Pastor Brett Peterson – The Next Event… Amos 1:3-5 States that Syria will come against Israel four times, and then will be made desolate. These occurred in: 1948 (1st) 1967(2nd) 1973(3rd) and the 4th could happen at any time! Damascus is the capital of Syria. It is the oldest perpetual city in the world! It is over 5000 years old! NOTE: Isn’t it appropriate that the oldest city is one that will be destroyed to clearly show the world that God is sovereign? Is. 17:1 States that Damascus will be taken away from being a city and become a ruinous heap - this has not happened yet, but will very soon!! In 1973, Israel came with 20 kilometers of Damascus - Russia stepped in and informed the world that if they continue, it will be world war three. If Israel had destroyed Damascus then, this prophecy could not have been fulfilled!

4 © 2005 Pastor Brett Peterson – So who’s side is Syria on? TEL AVIV [MENL] -- Israel's military has been preparing for the increasing prospect of a war with Syria in a confrontation expected to include Iran and Hizbullah. The General Staff has discussed an assessment by the military's Northern Command of an emerging threat from Syria and Hizbullah over the next year. Northern Command said a weakened Syria, under pressure from the United States to withdraw from Lebanon, was likely to approve an Iranian-Hizbullah campaign against Israel. Military sources said this assessment was the latest by several senior officers who envision a major war with Syria by 2007.

5 © 2005 Pastor Brett Peterson – Syrian President, Bashar Al-Assad, granted an interview to the pro-Syrian daily Al-Safir (Lebanon). The interviewer was the editor Talal Salman Bashar Al-Assad: 'The Arab Defense Agreement Should Be Implemented'; 'As Long as Israel Exists It Will Constitute a Threat'; 'Israel Will Not Be a Legitimate State Even After the Peace‘ "The logical thing is to implement the Arab Defense Agreement. According to this agreement, if an Arab country is invaded, the rest of the Arab countries should defend it. Instead of implementing this agreement, there were those who facilitated the aggression, while neighboring countries refused to do so." "As long as Israel exists, the threat exists. As long as there is aggression against an Arab country, and as long as there is a war close to our borders, the danger continues.

6 © 2005 Pastor Brett Peterson – What is the Muslim religion saying in Syria and Palestine and Iraq? Palestinian Authority Television (Gaza). "Trustworthy [Islamic] clerics, from East and West… came up with proofs from the Koran and the Sunna, and announced them from the pulpits of Al-Azhar and other mosques around the world, that any Muslim who does not stand by Iraq and support it against the American-British-Crusaders cruel attack is a traitor to his religion, traitor to his nation, traitor to his motherland, and traitor to his Arabism. Aren't you listening? Did you plug your ears and blinded your eyes? What happened to you? What is the meaning of this shame?!!" 'Allah, make [American and British] children orphans and their women widows' Israel and it’s mother, the great Satan, America along with it’s allies must perish. Jihad is upon them. Allah will help us.

7 © 2005 Pastor Brett Peterson – The beginning of the end… The First seal Matthew 24:3-5 As He was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, "Tell us, when will these things happen, and what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?" (4) And Jesus answered and said to them, "See to it that no one misleads you. (5) "For many will come in My name, saying, 'I am the Christ,' and will mislead many. 1John 2:18 Children, it is the last hour; and just as you heard that antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have appeared; from this we know that it is the last hour. Revelation 6:1-2 Then I saw when the Lamb broke one of the seven seals, and I heard one of the four living creatures saying as with a voice of thunder, "Come." (2) I looked, and behold, a white horse, and he who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer. Dan 9:27 "And he will make a firm covenant with the many for one week” This will begin the 70th week of Daniel (the Tribulation).

8 © 2005 Pastor Brett Peterson – Russia is backing Damascus - when Damascus attacks Israel again, it will be destroyed, and it will cause the prophecies in Ez. 38 and 39 to be fulfilled - Russia, the bear of the north along with Muslim nations will be forced to attack Israel, but God will intervene! Here is the timeline of events that could happen very soon: 2006 Syria Attacks

9 © 2005 Pastor Brett Peterson – Eze 38:2-8 "Son of man, set your face toward Gog of the land of Magog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him and say, 'Thus says the Lord GOD, "Behold, I am against you, O Gog, prince of Rosh, Meshech and Tubal. 4 "I will turn you about and put hooks into your jaws, and I will bring you out, and all your army, horses and horsemen, all of them splendidly attired, a great company with buckler and shield, all of them wielding swords; 5 Persia, Ethiopia and Put with them, all of them with shield and helmet; 6 Gomer with all its troops; Beth-togarmah from the remote parts of the north with all its troops--many peoples with you. 7 "Be prepared, and prepare yourself, you and all your companies that are assembled about you, and be a guard for them. 8 "After many days you will be summoned; in the latter years you will come into the land that is restored from the sword, whose inhabitants have been gathered from many nations to the mountains of Israel which had been a continual waste; but its people were brought out from the nations, and they are living securely, all of them Syria Attacks Russia & Arab States join in

10 © 2005 Pastor Brett Peterson – Eze 38:15 "You will come from your place out of the remote parts of the north, you and many peoples with you, all of them riding on horses, a great assembly and a mighty army; Eze 38:16 and you will come up against My people Israel like a cloud to cover the land. It shall come about in the last days that I will bring you against My land, so that the nations may know Me when I am sanctified through you before their eyes, O Gog." Eze 38:17 'Thus says the Lord GOD, "Are you the one of whom I spoke in former days through My servants the prophets of Israel, who prophesied in those days for many years that I would bring you against them? Eze 38:18 "It will come about on that day, when Gog comes against the land of Israel," declares the Lord GOD, "that My fury will mount up in My anger Syria Attacks Russia & Arab States join in They will be Destroyed.

11 © 2005 Pastor Brett Peterson – Eze 38:21 "I will call for a sword against him on all My mountains," declares the Lord GOD. "Every man's sword will be against his brother. Eze 38:22 "With pestilence and with blood I will enter into judgment with him; and I will rain on him and on his troops, and on the many peoples who are with him, a torrential rain, with hailstones, fire and brimstone. Zec 14:12 Now this will be the plague with which the LORD will strike all the peoples who have gone to war against Jerusalem; their flesh will rot while they stand on their feet, and their eyes will rot in their sockets, and their tongue will rot in their mouth. Zec 14:13 It will come about in that day that a great panic from the LORD will fall on them; and they will seize one another's hand, and the hand of one will be lifted against the hand of another.

12 © 2005 Pastor Brett Peterson – Eze 39:9 "Then those who inhabit the cities of Israel will go out and make fires with the weapons and burn them, both shields and bucklers, bows and arrows, war clubs and spears, and for seven years they will make fires of them. Eze 39:11 "On that day I will give Gog a burial ground there in Israel, the valley of those who pass by east of the sea, and it will block off those who would pass by. So they will bury Gog there with all his horde, and they will call it the valley of Hamon-gog. Eze 39:12 "For seven months the house of Israel will be burying them in order to cleanse the land. Eze 39:13 "Even all the people of the land will bury them; and it will be to their renown on the day that I glorify Myself," declares the Lord GOD. Eze 39:14 "They will set apart men who will constantly pass through the land, burying those who were passing through, even those left on the surface of the ground, in order to cleanse it. At the end of seven months they will make a search. Eze 39:15 "As those who pass through the land pass through and anyone sees a man's bone, then he will set up a marker by it until the buriers have buried it in the valley of Hamon-gog.

13 © 2005 Pastor Brett Peterson – This will cause the UN to take action - ten rulers will be appointed… Rev 17:12 "The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but they receive authority as kings with the beast for one hour. Rev 17:13 "These have one purpose, and they give their power and authority to the beast. Rev 13:1 And the dragon stood on the sand of the seashore. Then I saw a beast coming up out of the sea, having ten horns and seven heads, and on his horns were ten diadems, and on his heads were blasphemous names. Rev 13:2 And the beast which I saw was like a leopard, and his feet were like those of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. And the dragon gave him his power and his throne and great authority.

14 © 2005 Pastor Brett Peterson – And the antichrist will come to power… Rev 13:3 I saw one of his heads as if it had been slain, and his fatal wound was healed. And the whole earth was amazed and followed after the beast; Rev 13:4 they worshiped the dragon because he gave his authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, "Who is like the beast, and who is able to wage war with him?" Rev 13:5 There was given to him a mouth speaking arrogant words and blasphemies, and authority to act for forty-two months was given to him. The battle in the middle east will open the door for…

15 © 2005 Pastor Brett Peterson – The Antichrist, who will bring peace to the middle east… He will sign a peace treaty with Israel & the 70th week of Daniel, commonly called the ‘7 year Tribulation’ period, begins…

16 © 2005 Pastor Brett Peterson – Dan 9:27 "And he will make a firm covenant with the many for one week, but in the middle of the week he will put a stop to sacrifice and grain offering; and on the wing of abominations will come one who makes desolate, even until a complete destruction, one that is decreed, is poured out on the one who makes desolate."

17 © 2005 Pastor Brett Peterson – II Thess. 2:6-7 2Th 2:6 And you know what restrains him now, so that in his time he will be revealed. 2Th 2:7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only he who now restrains will do so until he is taken out of the way. Who or what is the ‘restrainer’? Scholars differ on what they believe: An Angel, the Holy Spirit, the Church, The Roman Government, etc.

18 © 2005 Pastor Brett Peterson – Who is the restrainer? The Holy Spirit is omnipresent and cannot be ‘taken out of the way’. Angels are often given the task of restraining something or holding something back: Rev 7:1 After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds of the earth, so that no wind would blow on the earth or on the sea or on any tree. The most natural, logical meaning of this text is that a mighty angel is restraining the spirit of the antichrist, until God takes him out of the way.

19 © 2005 Pastor Brett Peterson – The mark of the beast… At no time in history has a mark ever been used as a means to buy and sell. Here we are given a preview of a cashless society We are moving in that direction! Rev 14:9-12 Then another angel, a third one, followed them, saying with a loud voice, "If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives a mark on his forehead or on his hand, (10) he also will drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is mixed in full strength in the cup of His anger; and he will be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. (11) "And the smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever; they have no rest day and night, those who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name." (12) Here is the perseverance of the saints who keep the commandments of God and their faith in Jesus.

20 © 2005 Pastor Brett Peterson – Antichrist Anti – in the Greek means: Thayer Definition: 1) over against, opposite to, before 2) for, instead of, in place of (something) Pseudo – the false Christ.

21 © 2005 Pastor Brett Peterson – Syria attacks Israel with Palestinian help - Damascus is destroyed. 2. This is the hook that pulls Russia down and the Muslim nations around Israel, who then attack Israel. 3. God intervenes and destroys them. 4. World emergency is declared, the UN assume control of the 10 world zones. (3 of the nations will oppose this soon after the 70th week of Daniel starts).

22 © 2005 Pastor Brett Peterson – The events taking place in the world today are preparing the world for the completion of the prophecies in the Bible. The World is looking for someone to bring peace to the middle east. That someone is the anti-christ. He will confirm a 7 year treaty with Israel: in Dan.9:27 Dan 9:26 "Then after the sixty-two weeks the Messiah will be cut off and have nothing, and the people of the prince who is to come will destroy the city and the sanctuary. And its end will come with a flood; even to the end there will be war; desolations are determined. Dan 9:27 "And he will make a firm covenant with the many for one week” This will begin the 70th week of Daniel (the Tribulation).

23 © 2005 Pastor Brett Peterson – The 10 world zone powers (UN) give power to the Anti-Christ. 7. He makes a peace treaty with Israel - this starts the 70th week of Daniel (the Tribulation). 8. Israel completes it’s Temple. 9. Two witnesses come on the scene. (Rev. 11)

24 © 2005 Pastor Brett Peterson – Back to our timeline of events about to take place… 2003 Syria Attacks Russia & Arab States join in The UN will take over. The seals begin to be opened… Pseudo Christ rises Peace in the middle east Temple rebuilt

25 © 2005 Pastor Brett Peterson – Let’s explore the last 7 years of human rule on this planet. The 70 th Week of Daniel. Many people call it the great tribulation period, or the time of Jacob’s trouble. The Bible nowhere calls these seven years by either name. Jer 30:2 "Thus says the LORD, the God of Israel, 'Write all the words which I have spoken to you in a book. 3 'For behold, days are coming,' declares the LORD, 'when I will restore the fortunes of My people Israel and Judah.' The LORD says, 'I will also bring them back to the land that I gave to their forefathers and they shall possess it.'" 4 Now these are the words which the LORD spoke concerning Israel and concerning Judah: 5 "For thus says the LORD, 'I have heard a sound of terror, Of dread, and there is no peace. 6 'Ask now, and see If a male can give birth. Why do I see every man With his hands on his loins, as a woman in childbirth? And why have all faces turned pale? Jer 30:7 'Alas! for that day is great, There is none like it; And it is the time of Jacob's distress, But he will be saved from it. :8 'It shall come about on that day,' declares the LORD of hosts, 'that I will break his yoke from off their neck and will tear off their bonds; and strangers will no longer make them their slaves.

26 © 2005 Pastor Brett Peterson – The time of Jacob’s trouble refers to an event that takes place in the midst of the 70 th week of Daniel. It is after God has made them a nation again – already done. It begins with a time of distress for the Jews and immediate release from the yoke of bondage. This happens right after the abomination of desolation in the middle of the 70 th week! It refers in Jeremiah to ‘that day’ – “a great day, there is none like it” (Jeremiah 30:7) It is the same ‘day’ that begins the day of the Lord! (more on this next week)

27 © 2005 Pastor Brett Peterson – The 70 th week of Daniel Seal 1 continued…The beginning of the end

28 © 2005 Pastor Brett Peterson – This man will be Satan’s version of the messiah. He will come to power through diplomacy and will end with complete corruption. Most of the world will idolize him and follow him. II Thess. 2:8-12

29 © 2005 Pastor Brett Peterson – Rev 17:12 "The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but they receive authority as kings with the beast for one hour. 13 "These have one purpose, and they give their power and authority to the beast. 14 "These will wage war against the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, because He is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those who are with Him are the called and chosen and faithful." 15 And he *said to me, "The waters which you saw where the harlot sits, are peoples and multitudes and nations and tongues. 16 "And the ten horns which you saw, and the beast, these will hate the harlot and will make her desolate and naked, and will eat her flesh and will burn her up with fire. 17 "For God has put it in their hearts to execute His purpose by having a common purpose, and by giving their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God will be fulfilled. 18 "The woman whom you saw is the great city, which reigns over the kings of the earth."

30 © 2005 Pastor Brett Peterson – Rev 17:12 "The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but they receive authority as kings with the beast for one hour. 13 "These have one purpose, and they give their power and authority to the beast. 14 "These will wage war against the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, because He is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those who are with Him are the called and chosen and faithful." 15 And he *said to me, "The waters which you saw where the harlot sits, are peoples and multitudes and nations and tongues. 16 "And the ten horns which you saw, and the beast, these will hate the harlot and will make her desolate and naked, and will eat her flesh and will burn her up with fire. 17 "For God has put it in their hearts to execute His purpose by having a common purpose, and by giving their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God will be fulfilled. 18 "The woman whom you saw is the great city, which reigns over the kings of the earth." Rome Babylon

31 © 2005 Pastor Brett Peterson – These 10 kings could be part of the United Nations, or some other configuration of countries yet to be established. It is interesting to note that the United nations has broken the entire world up into 10 economic zones: North America, Western Europe, Japan,Australia & South Africa, Eastern Europe & Russia, Latin America, North Africa & the Middle East, Tropical Africa, South and Southeast Asia, and China.

32 © 2005 Pastor Brett Peterson – “ Americans should not expect one battle, but a lengthy campaign unlike any other we have ever seen…What is at stake is not just America’s freedom. This is the world’s fight. This is civilization’s fight. This is the fight of all who believe in progress and pluralism, tolerance, and freedom.” President George W. Bush Much of the World’s governments want to come together. It is in the United Nations charter and their ultimate agenda! Rev. 17: 17 "For God has put it in their hearts to execute His purpose by having a common purpose, and by giving their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God will be fulfilled.

41 © 2005 Pastor Brett Peterson – Who is the Pseudo Christ? He’s Jewish: John 5:43 "I have come in My Father's name, and you do not receive Me; if another comes in his own name, you will receive him. Jesus spoke this to the Pharisees – they will embrace the antichrist as messiah.

42 © 2005 Pastor Brett Peterson – He will come out of the Roman political system Daniel 9:26-27 "Then after the sixty-two weeks the Messiah will be cut off and have nothing, and the people of the prince who is to come will destroy the city and the sanctuary. And its end will come with a flood; even to the end there will be war; desolations are determined. (27) "And he will make a firm covenant with the many for one week, but in the middle of the week he will put a stop to sacrifice and grain offering; and on the wing of abominations will come one who makes desolate, even until a complete destruction, one that is decreed, is poured out on the one who makes desolate."

43 © 2005 Pastor Brett Peterson – The fulfillment of this occurred in history when the Roman legions under Titus Vespasian destroyed Jerusalem and the Temple in 70 A.D. [Jesus foretold this in Luke 19:44] This is most likely the UN – possibly the security council.

44 © 2005 Pastor Brett Peterson – So the Anti-Christ will be of Jewish decent but come out of the Roman Empire. He will allow Israel to rebuild their temple!

45 © 2005 Pastor Brett Peterson – I have asked several Rabbi’s how they will know when the Messiah comes. They all say that whoever brings peace to their land and allows them to rebuild their temple will be the Messiah. Israel believes the Anti-christ is the Messiah!

46 © 2005 Pastor Brett Peterson – But three of those leaders will disagree with the arrangement, and they will be subdued. Daniel 7:23 "Thus he said: 'The fourth beast will be a fourth kingdom on the earth, which will be different from all the other kingdoms and will devour the whole earth and tread it down and crush it.Dan 7:24 'As for the ten horns, out of this kingdom ten kings will arise; and another will arise after them, and he will be different from the previous ones and will subdue three kings. Daniel 7:25 'He will speak out against the Most High and wear down the saints of the Highest One, and he will intend to make alterations in times and in law; and they will be given into his hand for a time, times, and half a time.

Daniel 7:23 "Thus he said: 'The fourth beast will be a fourth kingdom on the earth, which will be different from all the other kingdoms and will devour the whole earth and tread it down and crush it.Dan 7:24 'As for the ten horns, out of this kingdom ten kings will arise; and another will arise after them, and he will be different from the previous ones and will subdue three kings. Daniel 7:25 'He will speak out against the Most High and wear down the saints of the Highest One, and he will intend to make alterations in times and in law; and they will be given into his hand for a time, times, and half a time. Three of the leaders will oppose the peace treaty with Israel and the one world governmental system! Dan 7:8 "While I was contemplating the horns, behold, another horn, a little one, came up among them, and three of the first horns were pulled out by the roots before it; and behold, this horn possessed eyes like the eyes of a man and a mouth uttering great boasts.

48 © 2005 Pastor Brett Peterson – But three of those leaders will disagree with the arrangement, and they will be ‘uprooted’. Daniel 7:23 "Thus he said: 'The fourth beast will be a fourth kingdom on the earth, which will be different from all the other kingdoms and will devour the whole earth and tread it down and crush it.Dan 7:24 'As for the ten horns, out of this kingdom ten kings will arise; and another will arise after them, and he will be different from the previous ones and will subdue three kings. Daniel 7:25 'He will speak out against the Most High and wear down the saints of the Highest One, and he will intend to make alterations in times and in law; and they will be given into his hand for a time, times, and half a time. The Antichrist will only have power for about 3.5 years!

49 © 2005 Pastor Brett Peterson – The antichrist will only have power for 3 and ½ years! This is the first half of the 70 th week of Daniel! Then the sixth seal is broken…Revelation Chapter 6. The last half of the 70 th week of Daniel God’s wrath will be unleashed on this planet, and no one will have control. Rev 6:15 Then the kings of the earth and the great men and the commanders (this includes the antichrist)and the rich and the strong and every slave and free man hid themselves in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains; Rev 6:16 and they *said to the mountains and to the rocks, "Fall on us and hide us from the presence of Him who sits on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb; Rev 6:17 for the great day of their wrath has come, and who is able to stand?" Dan 7:24 'As for the ten horns, out of this kingdom ten kings will arise; and another will arise after them, and he will be different from the previous ones and will subdue three kings. Daniel 7:25 'He will speak out against the Most High and wear down the saints of the Highest One, and he will intend to make alterations in times and in law; and they will be given into his hand for a time, times, and half a time. (this must be the first half of the 70 th week!)

Rev. 13:5 There was given to him a mouth speaking arrogant words and blasphemies, and authority to act for forty-two months was given to him. He has authority the first half only!

52 © 2005 Pastor Brett Peterson – Dan 11:35 "Some of those who have insight will fall, in order to refine, purge and make them pure until the end time; because it is still to come at the appointed time. Dan 11:36 "Then the king will do as he pleases, and he will exalt and magnify himself above every god and will speak monstrous things against the God of gods; and he will prosper until the indignation is finished, for that which is decreed will be done. Dan 11:37 "He will show no regard for the gods of his fathers or for the desire of women, nor will he show regard for any other god; for he will magnify himself above them all. Dan 11:38 "But instead he will honor a god of fortresses, a god whom his fathers did not know; he will honor him with gold, silver, costly stones and treasures.

53 © 2005 Pastor Brett Peterson – The Second seal Revelation 6:3-4 When He broke the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying, "Come." (4) And another, a red horse, went out; and to him who sat on it, it was granted to take peace from the earth, and that men would slay one another; and a great sword was given to him. Matthew 24:6-8 "You will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end. (7) "For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom Dan 7:8 "While I was contemplating the horns, behold, another horn, a little one, came up among them, and three of the first horns were pulled out by the roots before it; and behold, this horn possessed eyes like the eyes of a man and a mouth uttering great boasts. Three nations will oppose this one world government!

54 © 2005 Pastor Brett Peterson – Dan 11:39 "He will take action against the strongest of fortresses with the help of a foreign god; he will give great honor to those who acknowledge him and will cause them to rule over the many, and will parcel out land for a price. Dan 11:40 "At the end time the king of the South will collide with him, and the king of the North will storm against him with chariots, with horsemen and with many ships; and he will enter countries, overflow them and pass through. Dan 11:41 "He will also enter the Beautiful Land, and many countries will fall; but these will be rescued out of his hand: Edom, Moab and the foremost of the sons of Ammon. Dan 11:42 "Then he will stretch out his hand against other countries, and the land of Egypt will not escape.

I looked, and behold, a black horse; and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand. (6) And I heard something like a voice in the center of the four living creatures saying, "A quart of wheat for a denarius (a days wage), and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not damage the oil and the wine." Matthew 24:7b, and in various places there will be famines This will lead to the total collapse of the economy and the start of the mark of the beast to buy and sell: Revelation 13:15-17 And it was given to him to give breath to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast would even speak and cause as many as do not worship the image of the beast to be killed. (16) And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, (17) and he provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name.

It took its name from it being equal to ten “asses”, a number after 217 B.C. increased to sixteen (about grams or.1375 oz.). It was the principal silver coin of the Roman empire. From the parable of the labourers in the vineyard, it would seem that a denarius was then the ordinary pay for a day’s wages. (Mat_20:2-13)

57 © 2005 Pastor Brett Peterson – The Fourth seal Revelation 6:7-8 When the Lamb broke the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, "Come." (8) I looked, and behold, an ashen horse; and he who sat on it had the name Death; and Hades was following with him. Authority was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with famine and with pestilence and by the wild beasts of the earth. Matthew 24:6-13 "You will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end. (7) "For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes. (famines always lead to more pestilence) (8) "But all these things are merely the beginning of birth pangs. Pestilence is sickness – there are over 30 new diseases in the world today since the 1960’s! SARS & Bird flue is the latest ones.

58 © 2005 Pastor Brett Peterson – Rom 8:35 Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? Rom 8:36 Just as it is written, "FOR YOUR SAKE WE ARE BEING PUT TO DEATH ALL DAY LONG; WE WERE CONSIDERED AS SHEEP TO BE SLAUGHTERED." Rom 8:37 But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us. Rom 8:38 For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, Rom 8:39 nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

59 © 2005 Pastor Brett Peterson – The Fifth seal Revelation 6:9-11 When the Lamb broke the fifth seal, I saw underneath the altar the souls of those who had been slain because of the word of God, and because of the testimony which they had maintained; (10) and they cried out with a loud voice, saying, "How long, O Lord, holy and true, will You refrain from judging and avenging our blood on those who dwell on the earth?" (11) And there was given to each of them a white robe; and they were told that they should rest for a little while longer, until the number of their fellow servants and their brethren who were to be killed even as they had been, would be completed also. Matthew 24:(9) "Then they will deliver you to tribulation, and will kill you, and you will be hated by all nations because of My name. (10) "At that time many will fall away and will betray one another and hate one another. (11) "Many false prophets will arise and will mislead many. (12) "Because lawlessness is increased, most people's love will grow cold. (13) "But the one who endures to the end, he will be saved.

(19) "But when they hand you over, do not worry about how or what you are to say; for it will be given you in that hour what you are to say. (20) "For it is not you who speak, but it is the Spirit of your Father who speaks in you. (21) "Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child; and children will rise up against parents and cause them to be put to death. (22) "You will be hated by all because of My name, but it is the one who has endured to the end who will be saved. (23) "But whenever they persecute you in one city, flee to the next; for truly I say to you, you will not finish going through the cities of Israel until the Son of Man comes. (32) "Therefore everyone who confesses Me before men, I will also confess him before My Father who is in heaven. (33) "But whoever denies Me before men, I will also deny him before My Father who is in heaven.

63 © 2005 Pastor Brett Peterson – Ti 4:1 But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons, Dan 11:35 "Some of those who have insight will fall, in order to refine, purge and make them pure until the end time; because it is still to come at the appointed time. Mar 4:16 "In a similar way these are the ones on whom seed was sown on the rocky places, who, when they hear the word, immediately receive it with joy; Mar 4:17 and they have no firm root in themselves, but are only temporary; then, when affliction or persecution arises because of the word, immediately they fall away.

Dan 11:36 "Then the king will do as he pleases, and he will exalt and magnify himself above every god and will speak monstrous things against the God of gods; and he will prosper until the indignation is finished, for that which is decreed will be done.

(14) The sky was split apart like a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. (15) Then the kings of the earth and the great men and the commanders and the rich and the strong and every slave and free man hid themselves in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains; (16) and they *said to the mountains and to the rocks, "Fall on us and hide us from the presence of Him who sits on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb; (17) for the great day of their wrath has come, and who is able to stand?“

Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble, For the day of the LORD is coming; Surely it is near,2 A day of darkness and gloom, A day of clouds and thick darkness. As the dawn is spread over the mountains, So there is a great and mighty people; There has never been anything like it, Nor will there be again after it To the years of many generations.3 A fire consumes before them And behind them a flame burns. The land is like the garden of Eden before them But a desolate wilderness behind them, And nothing at all escapes them.28 "It will come about after this That I will pour out My Spirit on all mankind; And your sons and daughters will prophesy, Your old men will dream dreams, Your young men will see visions.29 "Even on the male and female servants I will pour out My Spirit in those days.30 "I will display wonders in the sky and on the earth, Blood, fire and columns of smoke.31 "The sun will be turned into darkness And the moon into blood Before the great and awesome day of the LORD comes.32 "And it will come about that whoever calls on the name of the LORD Will be delivered; For on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem There will be those who escape, As the LORD has said, Even among the survivors whom the LORD calls.

Rev 12:6 Then the woman fled into the wilderness where she *had a place prepared by God, so that there she would be nourished for one thousand two hundred and sixty days.(3.4 years) Rev 12:14 But the two wings of the great eagle were given to the woman, so that she could fly into the wilderness to her place, where she *was nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent. Who’s the ‘male child’ that was ‘caught up (raptured) at this point?

74 © 2005 Pastor Brett Peterson – Rev 12:15 And the serpent poured water like a river out of his mouth after the woman, so that he might cause her to be swept away with the flood. Rev 12:16 But the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and drank up the river which the dragon poured out of his mouth. Rev 12:17 So the dragon was enraged with the woman, and went off to make war with the rest of her children, who keep the commandments of God and hold to the testimony of Jesus. Israel’s offspring or children are those who hold to the testimony of Jesus! The first male child is the church! (2Ti 2:12) If we endure, we will also reign with Him; If we deny Him, He also will deny us; (Rev 20:6) Blessed and holy is the one who has a part in the first resurrection; over these the second death has no power, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with Him for a thousand years.

And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony of Jesus and because of the word of God, and those who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received the mark on their forehead and on their hand; and they came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. (5) The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were completed. This is the first resurrection. (6) Blessed and holy is the one who has a part in the first resurrection; over these the second death has no power, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with Him for a thousand years.

Revelation 7:3-4 saying, "Do not harm the earth or the sea or the trees until we have sealed the bond-servants of our God on their foreheads." (4) And I heard the number of those who were sealed, one hundred and forty-four thousand sealed from every tribe of the sons of Israel: Revelation 7:9 After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could count, from every nation and all tribes and peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, and palm branches were in their hands; All of this is just after the breaking of the 6 th seal.

78 © 2005 Pastor Brett Peterson – Those in white robes… A white robe = white garments are clearly the proper attire of those in the presence of God. Notice it will be the attire of: a. The overcomers, (Rev 3:4-5, 18). b. The martyrs, (Rev 6:11). c. The universally innumerable multitude, (Rev 7:9). d. The armies of heaven, (Rev 19:14). Revelation 19:7-8 "Let us rejoice and be glad and give the glory to Him, for the marriage of the Lamb has come and His bride has made herself ready." (8) It was given to her to clothe herself in fine linen, bright and clean; for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints. All indicating the Church – the Bride of Christ!

79 © 2005 Pastor Brett Peterson – Thessalonians 5:7-10 For those who sleep do their sleeping at night, and those who get drunk get drunk at night. (8) But since we are of the day, let us be sober, having put on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet, the hope of salvation. (9) For God has not destined us for wrath, but for obtaining salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, (10) who died for us, so that whether we are awake or asleep, we will live together with Him. For us, this is a wonderful promise – we will not be here when the seventh seal is broken – we are not destined for wrath!

80 © 2005 Pastor Brett Peterson – From Chuck Missler’s site: The Rapture Myth The Rapture Myth is identical to the doctrine of cheap grace, as detailed by Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Rapture as doctrine is one thing. The Rapture Myth is a distortion of that doctrine, which says the Rapture will spare us from all time of trial, suffering, conflict and the need to do spiritual battle because we aren't going to endure God's wrath in the time of the Tribulation. It never occurs to the Rapture Myth people that we may well endure the world's wrath before Christ returns. The Rapture Myth takes comfort in the fallacious assumption that there will be no time of trial in the run-up to the Rapture and Tribulation. It comforts itself with a "we're going to be outta here" mentality; not to worry about anything. Just keep teaching the Bible as if the Bible were an end and goal unto itself. It fails to notice that the Bible is a manual for action, not just study, and most definitely not an end in itself. As Jesus said, the Kingdom of Heaven consists in power, not words.
