Future events cast their shadows. In these last days there are many shadows being cast of future events that are soon to come! Here are some of the coming events that are casting their shadows:
- The coming new world order or the kingdom of the antichrist
- The coming antichrist
- The religion of the antichrist is getting popular. This is the occult and it is being popularized via Harry Potterism and Lord of the Rings.
- The music of the antichrist which is rock and roll music. Even this demonic music has made it into the churches!
- The great apostasy. We are living in days when many people are falling away and rejecting the Christian faith. This is very true of many pastors and churches that were once Bible based.
These are a few current trends casting their evil shadows in the world. Believe me there are many more that could be listed.
Now in 2004 we have a couple of big shadows casting signs of impending events in the not too distant future! We will look at two of them. The first relates to the second seal judgment of war and the second relates to the forth seal of sickness and death.
When the Lord judges the earth He will do it by 7 seal judgments, 7 trumpet judgments, and 7 bowl judgments. After all those are complete, the current population of the world at almost 7 billion will be reduced to the millions. We start by looking at the shadow of the second seal judgment which deals with war:
3 And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see.
4 And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.
In the news lately there has been concern over Iran having nuclear bombs and the missiles to deliver them. Many are wondering if the USA or Israel will be launching an attack against Iran to destroy their nuclear bombs. Of course no matter what happens, Iran will not be destroyed until they are destroyed in the great Russian invasion recorded in Ezekiel chapters 38 and 39.
Right now there are major dangers of war. The main war threats are coming from the Muslims. Here is an article that shows how these people are getting all excited about a coming big war where they believe that they will win. Truly future events are casting their shadows:
Analysis: The Significance of the Blood-Moon Eclipse with Today's
Source: TT Analysis | 5:21:58 PM EST
Tonight marks an event that is being heralded by Islamic fundamentalists as a sign from Allah that a Holy War with the USA and western Christian civilization will lead to an Islamic millennial kingdom with Islam becoming the only religion on Earth. The event that would precipitate all of this is called a "blood-moon eclipse". While a total lunar eclipse is rare and won't happen again until March 2007, of course it is made all the more rare when the parameters include that it must come during a particular Ramadan.
Such an eclipse in Islamic prophecy is seen as heralding a sign from Allah that the Islamic "messiah" will come forth to lead Islam in a Holy War against the infidels of the world that will conclude with Islam reigning supreme around the planet. Such prophecy has already apparently steeled the nerves of Al Qaeda leadership which is steeped in Islamic fundamentalism.
Under this Theological Prophecy, some of Islam's more influential
radical theologians issued a Fatwa or theological edict/doctrine that
approves, recommends and urges onward those who would take up the
banner of Jihad or "holy war" against American Infidels in the Middle
East and also within America's continental borders. Why? Because they
believe that this Ramadan is the one prophesied and thus the ultimate
victory is assured which will bring about "paradise on earth."

As you can tell the Islamics are getting all excited about war. When the time is right and allowed by God, they will make their moves.
After the rapture the second seal will be opened. At that time there will be wars breaking out all over the world. We are certainly seeing future shadows of coming wars.
When the Lord opens up the forth seal, there will be massive sickness and death on earth. Here is what the Bible says about the forth seal of judgment.
7 And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.
8 And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
Below are a couple of articles that show the great impending shadow of the forth seal of judgment. When the Lord breaks the forth seal expect millions (billion or more) people to die.
One method that God will use to judge the world will be terrible and deadly diseases. One of the most scariest so far is the flesh eating bacteria. These type of disease breakouts continue to increase. It seems going to the hospital is not too safe these days as there are all kinds of staph and flesh eating bacteria ready to kill. There are all kinds of infections and bacteria that can kill the sick and weak!
The bad news is that things are going to get a whole lot worse in the days ahead. Divine judgment is coming to a lost and Christ rejecting world. This judgment is coming very soon as there is an explosion of terrible diseases like the flesh-eating bacteria and AIDS.
Through it all, lost men are not repenting! They still want their immoralities, perversions, and sodomy. Babies continue to be murdered in the wombs and God is mocked, rejected, and blasphemed. Yes, judgment is coming and this increase in the flesh-eating bacteria is nothing more than a taste of things to come!
2 Tim 3
1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
I certainly hope you are saved and born again. Soon the Lord will return to rapture home His people.
Here is the article about that deadly staph bacteria strain:
Staph Strain Infects More Healthy People
Flesh-eating bacteria cases, fatal pneumonia and life-threatening heart infections suddenly are popping up around the country, striking healthy people and stunning their doctors.
The cause? Staph, a bacteria better known for causing skin boils easily treated with standard antibiotic pills.
No more, say infectious disease experts, who increasingly are seeing these "super bugs" - strains of Staphylococcus aureus unfazed by the entire penicillin family and other first-line drugs.
Until a few years ago, these drug-resistant infections were
unheard of except in hospital patients, prison inmates and
the chronically ill. Now, resistant strains are infecting
healthy children, athletes and others with no connection to
a hospital. ...ap

As you can see the staph bug is going beyond medical science's ability to control with drugs. Once drugs can no longer stop this bug, expect many to die from it!
Next we have quite a dark shadow also related to the forth seal judgment. In this article a scientist speculates that up to a billion people could die from a flu epidemic. Yes this type of thing will happen but with that massive amount of death puts this event as a tribulation judgment. The forth seal will kill many people, even up to a billion or more. When you see these stories in the news, it is a major shadow of the forth seal of the judgment of God!
Russian Expert Says Flu Epidemic May Kill Over One Billion This Year
MosNews Date: Thursday, 28 October 2004, 10:48 a.m.
The world is on the brink of a major flu epidemic - one that could claim more than a billion lives, the head of the Russian Virology Institute, Academician Dmitry Lvov said at a press conference organized by the RIA-Novosti news agency on Thursday.
"Up to one billion people could die around the whole world in six months," Lvov said. The expert did not give a timeframe for the epidemic, but said that it is highly probable that it will start this year. "We are half a step away from a worldwide pandemic catastrophe," the academic said.
The Russian expert said that U.S. researchers possessed data suggesting that if a pandemic hits, up to 700,000 people will fall ill in the United States. He said that the population of the United States can be roughly compared to that of Russia and thus the number of cases will be approximately the same.
The academician said the pandemic was most likely to be caused by the so-called bird flu stem. "The death rate among those who contract this type of flu reaches 70 percent," Lvov said.
The expert called for the Russian authorities to prepare for the epidemic. The country will need a reserve of at least 300,000 hospital beds if an epidemic breaks out, he said.
As you can see there are many shadows of judgment coming upon the world. Yet many people are just blindly going through life as if nothing were happening. Many people live and act like they will live forever. They think nothing of their eternal soul and are blinded to these shadows of judgment.
People need to decide to accept or reject the Lord Jesus. We can now see the shadows of the Seal judgments of God. These will happen after the rapture of the church. Since these shadows can now be seen in the world, how soon the rapture of the church must be!
I certainly hope you have accepted the Lord Jesus as your Saviour. He is the only Saviour and the only way to heaven. There is salvation in no other but the Lord Jesus. In fact all other paths of salvation apart from the Lord Jesus lead to an eternity in hell the lake of fire.
Repent of your sins and accept the Lord Jesus today before it is too late!
6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
