Daniel 9:27 Begins With a Vote in Israel?

Israeli law requires a referendum on any peace deal that requires a withdrawal of territory by Israel. The purpose of this article is to discuss the implications that a referendum may have on the future fulfillment of Daniel 9:27, particularly the "covenant with many".

The Antichrist & Oil During the End Times

In this article, I want to show how much of the world’s oil comes from the Middle East to provide some sense of how much economic and political clout the Antichrist would likely gain if he manages to conquer the oil-producing countries of the Middle East. I also want to show how much of the world’s oil currently comes from Europe and Russia to provide a sense of how more powerful the Antichrist could become if he also controlled these areas.

I pose many questions that are important to consider when assessing where we are in relation to the end times. The main purpose of these questions is to help you think about where we stand on several issues that potentially impact where we are in relation to the end times.
Tribulation

How to Tell If We’re Living in the Tribulation

A reader a while back asked me something along the lines of “how shall we know when the “tribulation” has definitely begun”. This is an important question to address because there is a lot of speculation about when the seventieth week of Daniel (the seven year time period that most people refer to as the “tribulation”) might begin or what people are going to see before it begins. It would be useful for us to have some definitive signposts that we look for so we do not get caught off guard when the seventieth week of Daniel does begin or get caught up in premature proclamations that the seventieth week of Daniel has already begun. I'll provide a few definitive signposts that the seventieth week of Daniel has begun or is about ready to begin in this article.
