Europe is a troubled continent, and we're going to shed additional light on this topic today. Shalom, I'm Amir Tsarfati, the founder of Behold Israel. And if you've never heard of our ministry, I'd like to take some time and explain who we are and what we do. Israel holds a dear place in my heart.

As a native-born Israeli, officer in the IDF, the former deputy governor of Jericho, and a Bible teacher all around the globe, I felt called by the Lord to share not only the biblical significance of Israel, but also to explain current events in the Middle East in light of Bible prophecy. This is Understanding the Times Radio with Jan Markell. In today's broadcast, you'll hear a message from last fall's Understanding the Times Conference. Last October, Amir Tsarfati spoke on the subject, Europe closer to the Antichrist.

That is the message you'll be hearing this hour. The founder of Behold Israel, Amir travels the world to teach on issues involving eschatology and current events. You'll be able to hear Amir Tsarfati in person when he returns to this year's Twin Cities Conference on September 29. To begin today's program, here is Jan Markell.

And welcome to the program. This weekend, I'm going to be doing a conference message from Understanding the Times 2017 back in October. We're going to present Amir Tsarfati's second message to us that day, Europe closer to the Antichrist. It's really part two from his 2016 message, Europe ready for the Antichrist. Let's head right into Amir's conference message, second message.

I'll have more information about this and products available a little later. Shalom, everyone. Last year, it was that doom and gloom message, the way I was introduced, at least. And it is because the situation in Europe is doom and gloom.

But this year, it seems like it has gone further. And I decided in order to study for this message and to prepare it to go to Europe. And you see, Europe is a big continent and lots of different countries. And of course, in my mind, I need to go to the origins or at least part of the Roman Empire. If I believe that the Roman Empire is going to be revived.

And it is going to be the place where the Antichrist will come from. So, under normal circumstance, you will go to Rome if it's a Roman Empire. But I was actually led to go to a different place. And I actually was led to go to Berlin. And I speak German. I studied the German language when I did some things that I don't think you should know. And sometimes in a cafe in Berlin, you can get more information from your enemy than from the battlefield, just so you know. I want you to know that Berlin, I guess it was the direction of the Holy Spirit.

But I don't want to assume that. I'm just saying that it was an interesting visit to a city that, to be honest with you, if the rapture took place tomorrow, it wouldn't even know that it happened. Now, let's ask ourselves, first of all, where did we stop last year? What has happened in Europe since?

And what are we to expect in the near future? Which is, you know, quite interesting. I would like to begin with a few quotes from several people. One of them is actually a German-born Jew who fled Germany to the United States. And his name is Albert Einstein. And he said, "...the minority, the ruling class at present, has the schools and press, usually the church as well, under its thumb. This enables it to organize and sway the emotions of the masses and make its tool of them."

A profound thing to hear from a scientist who was born in Germany and who could see then already these things. But the minority that we know of, we have to admit that it's no longer a secret because they don't keep it as a secret anymore. It is a cartel of international bankers, industrialists, based mostly in Western Europe and North America. The names of certain families persist over long periods of time. Some of the most important names you know, Rothschild, we talked about it last time, the Rockefellers, Morgan, Lazard, Warburg, Schroeder, and Schiff, and there's more. But there's very few, very wealthy families in this world that are equally divided both in Western Europe and in North America that have a mission.

And you can look at the Georgia Guidestones and you can find it there. There's a set of stones that literally depict the mission and the goals of that group of people. One of them is to keep the Earth's population under 500 million. We just heard that we already passed the 6 billion and you're going to get to the 9 billion at some point.

Of course, the best way to cut down the population of the world is to create a situation where killing, murder, and whether it's babies inside the womb or whether it's people outside is being done in such a way that it will serve the interest of mankind. The same David Rockefeller wrote in his own book, Memoirs, on page 405. Some even believe that we, the Rockefeller family, are part of a secret cabal working against the best interest of the United States, characterizing my family and me as internationalists and conspiring with others around the world. He's speaking mostly on the other part of the family in Europe, to build a more integrated global political and economic structure, one world, if you will.

If that's the charge, I stand guilty and I am proud of it. Now, the same guy in a speech in Germany, in Baden, Germany, in a Bilderberg meeting said, it would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supernatural national sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national order determination practiced in the past century. Now, what you see here is that if in the past we were hiding our intentions, and he's saying that on German soil, now we're no longer hiding it. Now, actually, the sophisticated world is allowing us to move forward with it. There was a congressman called Larry McDonald, who sort of, in the 1970s, exposed this whole plan. He wrote, the drive of the Rockefellers and their allies is to create a one world government combining super capitalism and communism under the same tent. Do we see more or less what's going on in America today? Do I mean conspiracy?

Yes, I do. I am convinced there is such a plot international in scope. You see, it's not only in America, international in scope. Generations old in planning and incredibly evil in intent. Now, he was so deep in his effort to uncover this whole thing that they managed to get rid of him and all of that airplane carrying passengers.

747 Korean Airlines that was shut down by the Soviets. Interesting. You know, just before Donald Trump was elected president, I was online. I was at a church on Saturday and the Lord spoke to me through a message that my father-in-law actually gave. I'm inspired by my father-in-law.

We have other issues with mother-in-laws in Israel. If you just join me, I'm playing a conference message from October 2017 by Amir Sarfati in Europe, closer to the Antichrist. Let's return to Amir. I was reminded of the verse, the effective fervent prayer of the righteous man avails much. It has to be effective.

It has to be fervent and it will never go back. I mean, God will use such thing as long as we're righteous people. If we believe in God and we are followers of Jesus Christ because He's our righteousness. Then, of course, we can come before Him and pray in such a way. It's interesting because we often talk, and we just talked about it, about the restrainer being removed. But he's not removed yet, which means he still restrains. He restrains supernatural things from happening and catastrophic things from happening.

As we all know that once he's out, which means we're out, things will get very, very, very ugly. But as long as he's here in us, there is a power within our prayer to restrain things. I believe that that prayer of millions of evangelical Christians worldwide to stop that evil from ruling in the United States of America. And bringing it even deeper to the depth of the abyss.

I believe that the Lord answered that prayer and the restrainer did restrain. And we know that that effort to push for globalization, one world government and new world order suffered a major setback with Donald Trump elected as president of the United States of America. I listened very carefully to his speech in the U.N. And if I was a U.N. delegate, I would be very much ashamed. Hearing all the truth coming just right into my face and understanding how evil that organization is and how hypocrite it is. I mean, President Trump just gave them a Trump lesson of what he believes they are.

But think about it, the effort of those globalists and one world government is now shifting back to Europe because in America it is suffering a setback. Make no mistake, make no mistake, within your own military intelligence and of course, politics. By the way, I believe that Republicans and Democrats alike are infected by this thing. There is a D.C. elite that has nothing to do with Democrats or Republicans.

These are families, that's a cahoot. And I do believe that the Republicans hate Trump as much as the Democrats do. And I can tell you one thing. I can tell you one thing that you can see that he's coming from the outside. And you can see that in his attempt to drain the swamp, there's a huge monster that comes out of the swamp right now. And saying, what are you talking about, Willis? Many of those people are now accusing Russia for some sort of meddling with your elections.

Am I right? I'm an Israeli, you know that already. And let me tell you something, your former president intervened violently in our elections two years ago. He sponsored people to go and help the other candidates so Netanyahu will lose. And if that's not enough, Obama backed Macron in last minute intervention in French election. In other words, you can see how the shift, it's not working in America, what are we going to do? Let's help the European counterpart to move forward with that thing. And then, of course, they marketed Macron as a potential savior of Europe walking on water just as a messiah with everybody drowning.

And he might be their savior. It is a very, very well-known tactic. You create a crisis, okay? And once you create a crisis, you confuse the people and then you give them hope. When you create a crisis, the crisis began two years ago. The New York Times actually admit that Obama jump-started the Arab Spring.

It's not even a secret. Now, if you try to understand what happened, look at this. Look at the next one and see the global elite is sending one president to jump-start the Arab Spring. And it backfires in two different directions. One, it goes to create chaos in the Middle East, not anything else. Chaos that leads to the death of more than 700,000 people so far and millions are displaced. And that chaos led to that vast immigration into Europe that causes so much confusion and despair and the lack of security and stability. And they want a savior. So you see it worked in two ways.

And both ways, somehow, with our understanding of Bible prophecy, both ways serves very well that which we know is going to happen. That crisis, believe it or not, started not just standing in the Islamic University in Cairo in 2009, but more so when at the time Secretary of State Clinton decided that Muammar Gaddafi has to be removed. Now, many of you may not know that, but it was almost a third of the emails that WikiLeaks released about Clinton were somehow related to Libya. One must ask himself, what is that obsession with Libya? After all, Gaddafi, with all of his shortcomings, and trust me, he wasn't a saint, but Gaddafi was the only stable thing in that area. And Gaddafi actually said to the Europeans, I will be the blockage of African invasion into Europe if you pay me that much money to be able to do that.

I'll do that for you and I need that much money. But then Gaddafi also had his own ideas regarding oil and the price of oil and the way to set the price of oil. And he offered both to the Arab world, the Europeans, and the rest that we better stop using the petrodollar and start using a gold dinar. Which means we're no longer going to base the price on cash that is within countries, but on gold that is within countries.

And that, of course, made both the elites in America very insecure and those in Europe that gained much from all of this. They decided to tell Hillary Clinton that it is for her benefit to have him removed. So when she runs for presidency, that's her ticket. She moved an evil person from the Middle East and created stability in the prices of oil worse.

Therefore, there will be great stability in world's markets. But look at this thing, the New York Times reported that even critics understate how catastrophically bad the Hillary Clinton led NATO bombing in Libya was. What happened is that cork was released and ever since an ongoing flood, which we just heard about, is going from Libya.

Libya is the closest African country to Europe. Now, let me explain how it works so you understand. It is a well-oiled machine. No person gets on the boat without having paid a large sum of money. Just so you know, these are not super poor people. And after he paid a large sum of money, another boat is alerted on the coast of Italy. The boat that is alerted on the coast of Italy is a boat of rescue teams. Okay, so one boat is leaving the coast of Libya loaded with people that paid lots of money to the Italian mafia. And another boat is loaded with rescue teams from there paid by who? You might not believe it, but the number one contributor to the relief organizations that help rescuing and pays them per head is no other else but George Soros. Listen, look what this man said.

I believe that national borders are the obstacle in the world. Soros actually will eventually benefit from it because him and MasterCard joined forces to profit from immigration in different ways and plans. This man admitted in front of cameras that he did a lot of evil things in the sake of greed. But now he's trying to make up for them in ways of helping others.

A crisis that we just heard about is unequal to any other thing that has happened in the last 100 years. We have complete sets of CDs and DVDs of this event. Other speakers included Pastor J.D.

I believe that God is working all over the world in raising people to understand the times and seasons and to become what I call Watchmen on the wall. Because the Bible speaks in the Book of Ezekiel in Chapter 33.

The Bible speaks of the duty of the Watchmen who is high above who can see what's coming next to warn the people. Europe closer to the Antichrist. That's the theme of Amir Tsarfati's second message recorded at last October's Understanding the Times Conference and heard again today on Understanding the Times Radio. We'll return to Amir's 2017 conference presentation. But first, here's Jan Markell.

And welcome back. And if you join me late, I'm playing a message given by Amir Tsarfati at Understanding the Times 2017 back in October. It was his second message of the day, Europe closer to the Antichrist.

It's really part two as he gave part one back in 2016. And we have CDs, DVDs of all these events. But right now let's head back to Amir Tsarfati. Europe closer to the Antichrist. We can see another article saying, unable to confront the migrant crisis, Europe is committing suicide, literally. So after you create the crisis, and there is a crisis, now you create division.

It's a known tactic. You create division in different ways. First, you create division within the countries for the first time. By the way, I was in Berlin the week before the elections. And I already saw what's gonna happen. You see, I told you I'm not a prophet.

You know that. But everyone could see that the crisis is leading to division. And the division is going to be manifested in the election results.

And guess what happened? Markell, yes, she won, but in a much smaller majority. And guess who, for the first time since the fall of the Third Reich, received a representation in the German Reich and the German Parliament? It is a very far right-wing nationalist party called Alternative für Deutschland, Alternative for Germany. It was a stunning success for Germany and Europe. What the stunning success of that political party meant for Germany and Europe is that Germany from within is divided. Europe from within is divided.

You had the same thing. We just heard about how Macron was elected. Marie Le Pen was held by the left as almost Nazi. They sold everyone that if she's going to win, we're gonna go back to the Vichy days. That it's going to be fascist ruling. Therefore, it doesn't matter who it is, vote for the other one. Do you know him?

No, we know he's a good looking guy, married to his teacher. But come on, is that how you choose a president, one of the largest economies in the world? Within the countries, people are divided and then, of course, there is between the countries division. European states deeply divided on refugee crisis before the key summit that they had. May I say, you can clearly see the core of Western Europe divided from the Eastern Plan.

The illegal immigration divides Europe and the eastern part as the eastern part such as Poland. We heard about Hungary. By the way, the Hungarian president confronted Soros. Soros is Hungarian.

Soros paid for the high school and the university tuition for Mr. Orban. Just so you know, for the Prime Minister of Hungary. They used to be good friends until that Prime Minister said, Well, everything is nice when you help me, but you're about to destroy my country right now. I'm not going to stand for that.

So the Czech Republic, Slovenia and more refused to open their borders. So you see, just as Daniel said, it's going to be a sort of an empire, but it's not going to be that united. It's going to be divided.

The iron and clay that don't mix together, that which the stone is going to smash. And we know we dealt with who the stone is last time, is indeed divided. We heard that President Juncker delivered the State of the Union address on September 13. And in his address, he fleshed out his plan for an EU-wide army, which he is attempting to push through without the consent of the voters. Not only that, today Europe is having two different institutions. There is the European Commission and the European Council.

He wants to combine the two and that will be a move that would transform the EU leadership and consolidate authority in a single figure who would campaign for the post. And that's going to be, for the first time since the fall of the Roman Empire, Europe will have a single ruler, not by war, not Hitler, but by peaceful means. You have to understand, if you go back, Europe was under the Roman Empire from 27 BC to 395 AD. That was the Roman Empire that Daniel spoke about as the one that destroyed the temple in Jerusalem at the time. But then he continued speaking of it in future terms as if it will be revived. But that was the height of the Roman Empire in 117 AD. Look at how big it used to be.

Very, very vast all over Western Europe and, of course, Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, Egypt and the Northern African coast. But many of you may not know that once the European Emperor, the Roman Emperor, converted to Christianity. Well, he didn't really convert.

He said, if you can't beat them, join them. His mother is the one who converted, Helena. This caused a division and while the Byzantine Empire moved to the east and Rome is no longer the capital. That's why it wasn't called any more Roman Empire. It moved to Byzantion, which is Istanbul of today. But it was also Constantinople, named after Constantine. Then we had the Western Roman Empire in 395 to 476 AD. And that is all the way on the very end of France, Portugal and Spain with some of the coast of Northern Africa. The Byzantine Empire continued all the way until 1453 when we have the final destruction of it.

Now comes the interesting thing. I was in Berlin and I went to see some things from different time periods. I was asking myself, why is it that Hitler called his kingdom the Third Reich? I mean, everybody's talking about the Third Reich. But what was the First Reich? What was the Second Reich?

Why are we in the third already? I realized that apparently the First Reich, if you go to Wikipedia and Google that name, you'll find out that when the Pope commissioned the German king to rule Western Europe, it is considered both the First Reich in their history and the Holy Roman Empire. Did you know that? Did you know that there was a Holy Roman Empire from 800 AD to 1806? It is Napoleon who put an end to it.

That little guy was very active. And that's the map of the Holy Roman Empire. Guess who comprised the majority and who is the heart of it and who is the center of it of the First Reich?

Absolutely, Germany. Then came the Second Reich. When you look at the history books, it's the German Empire under the German Kaiser, Kaiser Wilhelm and others, that was there from 1871 to 1918, end of World War I.

That was the map of that one. Then, of course, Germany went through some other parts in their history, not too pleasant because they had to recover from a very humiliating treaty in Versailles. Then in 1923, there's a book written by a German author called, Arthur Müller, Vanderbrück, which is the ideology which heavily influenced the Nazi Party. The book formulated an ideal of a national empowerment which resounded throughout a Germany, desperate to rebuild from the Treaty of Versailles. He called his book, Das Dritte Reich, the Third Reich. This is why when Hitler came into power in 1933, until the end of that horrible time period, it was known as the Third Reich. His expansion plans were, of course, way beyond Europe. He wanted to take over the entire Russian part. Another question has remained.

Are we going to see a fourth one? It's interesting because definitely Berlin situated itself to be much more than just a city for the Germans. You go to the... and we saw it last time. You go to the Berlin Museum of Pergamon. You see that since 1930, the altar of Zeus, known as the Seat of Satan, taken piece by piece from Pergamon in Turkey, all the way brought to Berlin. You see, you guys protested for the reconstruction of the Arch of Baal. This is not a reconstruction.

That's the real deal. And it is in Berlin. Not only that, remember the Ishtar Gate, one of the Gate of Babylon, was taken by German archeologists. The whole thing is in Berlin right now.

Berlin has the Gate of Babylon and the Seat of Satan in its midst. Now, I told you that Mr. Juncker is thinking about a new military power. What you may not know is that a foreign report reported May 22nd of this year. Germany is quietly building a European army under its command.

Quite interesting, isn't it? When they reported that the former president or chancellor of Germany, Mr. Helmut Kohl, died. He's the one who actually was the architect of the reunification of Germany once the war failed in 1990. When they reported that he died and there is a memorial service, I expected all the world leaders to fly to Berlin or to fly to Germany, at least. Because he's a German guy and that's Germany's business. I was found dumbfounded that his whole, his entire memorial service was not even in Germany. It was in the Parliament of Europe without even a German flag, but with the European one. In other words, Germany is positioning itself not as Germany, but as what?

The ruler of? Correct, of Europe. We're playing Amir Tsarfati's second message given at Understanding the Times 2017, Europe closer to the Antichrist.

Let's get back to Amir and his message. I stumbled at a survey that was done 3 to 4 months ago throughout the European Union. Several questions strike my attention. First of all, how likely do you expect that a terrorist attack like what happened in Paris last year in Brussels or in Berlin could happen in your country?

Look what happened. 37% said very likely and 48% said somewhat likely. You're talking about more than 80% of the people believe that there is an imminent threat of terrorism. How serious a problem do you believe that is the illegal immigration coming into your country? Very serious 50%, only somewhat serious 31%. 81% see that as a problem.

How much do you trust the following institution? Your own government 51% say not at all. So when you create a crisis and you create division, you create distrust of these people in their own countries and their own leaders, then somebody is looking for someone else.

The chaos, despair, and hopelessness are needed in order to wait for a deliverer. And they will accept him the moment he surfaces. I think we quoted that several times. Michelle Bachmann just gave us an outstanding report on what's going on in Europe regarding the demographical issue. Of course, the Europeans are committing, in a sense, a suicide. George Weigel, a distinguished senior fellow of Washington, D.C.'s ethics and public policy, excuse me for...

He attended the European Parliament and he gave a speech. And he wrote, Europe is committing demographic suicide, systematically depopulating itself in what British historian Niall Ferguson has called, the greatest sustained reduction in European populations since the Black Death in the 14th century. I'm not talking about the immigration. Immigration is their answer. I'm talking about the Europeans themselves. This unwillingness to create the future in the most elemental sense by creating new generation is at the root of many of Europe's problems, including its difficulties assimilating immigrants and its fiscal distress. When an entire continent, healthier, wealthier, and more secure than ever before, deliberately chooses sterility and the most basic cause for that must lie in the realm of human spirit in a certain sorrowing about the very mystery of being.

Now, it's interesting because after his speech, the Italian representative in the European Parliament came to him and said, Look, we know we're finished. We're trying to arrange these things so that we can die comfortably in our beds. Don't you yanks come over here and start stirring things up. They understand that they're on their deathbed. They're not interested in your opinion. They're not interested in warning.

They are just interested in remaining comfortable in their deathbed. The prime ministers of presidents of Europe's largest economies and of all European members of the exclusive global club, the G7, are without children. Germans, Angela Merkel, Great Britain's Theresa May, Italy's Gentiloni, and France's Emmanuel Macron add to this mix the childless Dutch prime minister, Mark Rood, and the childless prime minister of Luxembourg, Javier Betel. And something quite striking comes into focus of the six founding members of what has evolved into the European Union. Five are now led by childless prime ministers or presidents.

It's not only about demography. The moral decline is staggering. Just about a few months ago, a little boy called Charles Matthew William Gard, who suffered from a very rare disease, was sentenced to death by the British Parliament. How? His parents admitted him to a British hospital. But then they found out that there is an experimental treatment in the United States. President Trump today, at that time candidate Trump, offered help. The court in Europe said no, and he was disconnected from the machine and died.

By the way, this is the one we know of. There are thousands of people that the European hospitals disconnect from life support every day because life is meaningless right now. And don't forget we have to reduce Earth's population.

So let's help doing so. The moral decline is staggering when you see a fashion show in an Anglican cathedral in London last month with the models wearing this satanic outfit with satanic emblem hanging on their necklace, Nostris satanas luciferi. It's no longer under the ground.

It's above the ground. Europe is choosing to commit suicide. Europe is choosing Satan and God to be mocked in a house of God, or at least what used to be one.

It's very minimal cost. You need to call us on that as we have to use a credit card. Hope you'll look into my various newsletters, e and print newsletters. That's how I stay in touch with you.

The program is always posted to my website, We're going to wrap up Amir Sarfati's second message from back in October. Let's head right back into his presentation.

Last year and the year before when I was here, we quoted the British historian, Arnold Toynbee. That said that the nations are ready to give the kingdoms of the world to any one man who will offer a solution to our world's problems. The first president of the United Nations General Assembly, Paul-Henri Spaak, who also was the Prime Minister of Belgium and one of the early planners of the EU. He said, we do not want another committee. We have too many already. What we want is a man of sufficient stature to hold the allegiance of all the people and to lift us up out of the economic morass into which we are sinking.

Send us such a man, whether he will be God or the devil, we will receive him. So first of all, you create a crisis. Then you divide the people and now you offer them hope. Interesting. Look how the elite in Europe is playing with your minds, but mostly with their minds. They start sending deliverers.

The younger, the better. It started in 2015 when Alexis Tsipras was elected as Prime Minister of Greece at that time in a huge crisis. And he's still the Prime Minister. By the way, he was Prime Minister.

Then what? It was elections and was re-elected. Continued this May in 2017 when Emmanuel Macron is now 39 years old, the president of France. And by the way, he's not the Messiah. He's a forerunner there testing the water with such people to see if Europe is ready. Now you think that's young?

Look at the next one. He's about to be the president, the Prime Minister of Austria. How old is he? 31. He's a foreign minister right now.

He was appointed when he was 29. And the interesting thing is, believe it or not, all three are very different from a man called Adolf Hitler who wanted to rule Europe. They are pleasant, nice, young. And believe it or not, they offer hope to their people in the midst of the despair. And if I may take you to my angle, Israel, they're good friends of Israel. Believe it or not, Tsipras is a very good friend of Netanyahu. We're signing some very interesting deals right now for gas and oil pipeline.

Macron said that he's not going to have any unilateral measures unlike his predecessor. And may I say, Sebastian Kurz is one of our best friends, just so you know. Why is it so important? Who is the next one? Who might be the one over all of Europe?

We're not sure. But why is it so important that they like Israel? You have to understand something.

This is one thing a lot of Bible teachers tend to ignore or overlook. The Antichrist has to be a good friend of Israel, has to serve the interests of the people of Israel and the Jewish people, has to be liked by them to the point of even worship by them. You cannot... People tell me, well, it has to be Erdogan. Erdogan is the biggest anti-Semite I've ever seen. Not even a single Israeli would ever think of him as his own Messiah.

You have to be someone else. Probably you're saying, how can a Jew look at a non-Jewish European leader as a Messiah? It's just too much. Well, it's not too much because that man has to solve the problems not only of Europe and not only give hope to the world. That's not gonna be enough. The whole fame will be nothing if he's not accepted by the Jews.

And if you want an example of someone who tried that before, look at this interesting article. Napoleon, a modern-day Messiah. Probably you're looking at me and saying, what are you talking about, Willis?

Watch this. We just found a 200-year-old coin. On one side, a portrait of Napoleon that appears on the side surrounded by the inscription, Napoleon, King and Emperor. So far, so good.

Let's flip the coin. Napoleon is portrayed in imperial dress, granting a kneeling French Jew the tablets of the Ten Commandments. Inscribed under the figure are the phrase, the Grand Sanhedrin and the date Napoleon announced its convention on May 30th, 1806. The Jews in France had hope in Napoleon to be the one who will deliver them from the hatred that was all over France at that time against the Jews. And they were so thrilled that he, for the first time, convened 71 Jewish leaders to match the number of the Grand Sanhedrin in Jerusalem of the ancient times.

And he basically bought their support and their friendship. The Antichrist has to be a friend of Israel, has to buy the trust of the Jewish people by ways of allowing them to rule once again, even on the Temple Mount. Allowing them to build the temple on the Temple Mount. And when the time comes, and by the way, all Jews pray for the coming over the Messiah that will be manifested in the rebuilding of the temple, peace, stability and prosperity. And for the first 3.5 years, let's face it, it will be good.

It will be so good until comes something very interesting. What is it that the Jewish people refused to accept in Jesus? Not that he is the Messiah. They never said to him, you are not the Messiah.

Never. Because in their mindset, the Messiah is a man, anointed by God by the man. So he could have been the Messiah. Their problem with Jesus, for which they called him a blasphemer, is that he admitted, he said, I and the Father are one. I am caught in the flesh.

That's too much. The understanding of the Jews that the Messiah is, someone who will bring prosperity and peace, is still there. And that's why they will walk after him, whoever he's going to be. But the minute the Antichrist will go into the temple and declare himself as what? That's where they say, enough is enough. We did not accept that one 2000 years ago.

We surely are not going to accept you. And this is when Israel will have its most terrible time known as the trouble of Jacob. So you see, Europe is definitely ready, closer than ever, to the birth of the one who will have to introduce that peace and prosperity.

And who will be greatly embraced by the Jewish people. But as we heard from my friend, JD, first, something has to happen. The catalyst has to take place, a war. And I want to believe that that war is also the sign for us to be out of here.

It has to take place. And when that war takes place in the Middle East, Islam is no longer powerful. And that is when a European leader can easily offer Jerusalem to the Jewish people without any substantial resistance from the Muslim world.

Today, the Saudi king visited Putin and reiterated the fact that the Saudis will not accept any solution. But that Jerusalem, the old city at least, East Jerusalem, they call it, will be the capital of the next Palestinian state, of the future Palestinian state. I mean, right now, the Muslims will not accept any solution that will not have Jerusalem as their capital. But once they lose in the mother of all wars, which is Ezekiel's war. Why do I call it the mother of all wars? As far as Israel is concerned, first time ever that a superpower invades into Israel. All of our wars since 1948, we were fighting our Arab neighbors. That's all. Maybe superpowers helped them, but never ever a superpower invaded into Israel. This is going to be the first time that Russia with troops will actually invade into Israel. Now, how come America is not going to help us?

We already heard the different options. Why are you so depressed? That if then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above where Christ is sitting at the right hand of God. Set your minds on the things above, not on the things on earth.

Trust me, you don't want to think of those things on earth. For our citizenship indeed is in heaven, from which we eagerly wait. Brother JD said that he's eagerly waiting for us. He is and we eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly bodies. That it may be conformed to his glorious one. So I hope all of us understand that this is about the hope and not about despair.

This is it. We're in the finish line. We're running the race and we have to run it with endurance. We have to look at Jesus, the author and the finisher of our faith. Amen.

Again, remember we have CDs and DVDs available of several of our recent conferences. And you know, we talk about Europe preparing for the Antichrist. What is more important is that you are prepared to meet Jesus Christ as the church does not experience the wrath of the Antichrist. The church is in heaven during the terrible time of the tribulation on earth. Just name Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior of your life. Tell him you want to turn your life around today.

If you have not done that, do it today. No one is guaranteed of tomorrow. While the tribulation is a beyond belief ordeal, the fires of hell are far worse.

And that is what you are spared from, thanks to what Jesus Christ did for you on the cross. Thanks for listening. We'll talk to you next week.
