1. Times of the Gentiles


There was a time when God had direct control over the affairs of the world. During the time of David, Israel was the center of God’s purposes on earth through his chosen people.

However, due to their constant disobedience and after numerous warnings sent through his prophets, God had had enough. He gave direct control over to the Gentiles.

2 Kings 24:1Babylon was the supreme authority. (It had defeated the other superpowers – Egypt and Assyria). Even though God stopped having direct control over earthly matters, He still had overall control. He was working out His will. Daniel 4:32

The AntiChrist 

Revived Roman Federation

Shortly before the second coming of Christ, ten nations of varying strength will unite to form a federation that will rise out of the ruins of the ancient Roman Empire. Since Rome is a part of Europe, it is likely that this coalition will be centered in Europe. From this empire will come the evil world leader that will be known as the AntiChrist.

3.0 End

The Lord will defeat the (confederates of the) Roman Empire and establish final control on the earth. A kingdom that will never end.
