Watching global headlines for the system of the beast.
Jesus gave us only one identifiably visible point in history between His resurrection and His return. Matthew 24:15 records Jesus telling us, “When you see the abomination of desolation spoken of by Daniel the prophet standing where it should not….” All other end-times aspects Jesus discussed are relative to one another: this one point is specifically identifiable.
This occurrence points to a man who elevates himself to the position of God. He is filled with hubris; is a master of deceit; is filled with pride and arrogance; can woo governments into agreement with him whether by slick talk or manipulation. This man will set himself in Jerusalem and declare he is God; and, Jesus will return and personally destroy him by throwing him into a lake of fire. You can read all these points in Matthew 24 and 25; Daniel 8, 9, 11 and 12; and Revelation 17-21.
The headlines noted on this site are considered systemic in nature, in other words, they point to the elements that must be in place for the beast system to be in effect. Revelation 13 states the end game: no one was able to buy or sell without the mark of the beast or the number of his name. The beast financial and political system represents authoritative control over markets, purchases, sales, and the use of currency in general. Further, not taking the mark to transact business is a death sentence to the refuser.
This site is a place where these patterns are noted through ongoing world changes and events. If you see valuable information that I have not included here, please comment on a post to let me know.
