25 (7) And through his policy also he shall (7) cause craft to prosper in his hand; (7) and he shall magnify himself in his (7) heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also (7) stand up against the Prince of princes; (7) but he shall be broken without hand.” (Daniel 8:23-25)

Revelation 6:2 And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.
Commentary; the rider is the ‘beast’ or ‘antichrist’. His being clothed in white suggests ‘3’ false righteousness, false peace and false authority. He has a bow, but no arrows. He rules with lies and threats, but no military or arms. He conquers and subjugates, not with force but with ‘5’ lies, deception, false covenants and false agreements and false promises. He is the world’s greatest ‘political’ leader and deceiver. He is the one who ‘confirms the false covenant of seven years with Jacob’ which starts the tribulation. You should know now of who I speak. His ‘crown’ represents authority, rulership and position. It even literally represents his ‘position’ as Crown Prince, once the tribulation begins. My discernment is that the ‘white horse upon which he sits’ is symbolically a white Arabian stallion.
How Does America Lose Its Sovereignty to the (7) ‘ONE-WORLD-GOVERNMENT-LEADER’ OR ‘FIRST HORSEMAN OF THE APOCALYPSE. Financial Insecurity, Society Degrading, Technical Advancement, And Spiritual Decline — Things Are Moving Fast
By David Bowen August 17, 2023 Harbingers Daily
In Matthew 24, Jesus and His disciples leave the Temple area when he begins to teach them about the end times. This is known as the Olivet Discourse. Discourse means teaching and the site of that teaching was the Mount of Olives.
In this teaching, Jesus speaks about birth pains. As He lists the events that will take place in the last days — deception, war, famines, earthquakes, i.e., the “birth pains,” — His listeners would understand the comparison of these events to a woman giving birth. One knows that these events, or birth pains, will become more intense and rapid as we get closer to the “birth.” The birth is the return of Jesus Christ!
I pastor in Phoenix, Arizona. As a pastor, I have the privilege of preaching every week. As an expository preacher, I preach book-by-book and chapter-by-chapter. Recently, I just started a new series on the book of Ruth. I knew it had been a while since I had preached a series from Ruth, but I did not realize how long it had been until I went into my files and pulled out my last sermon from that series. Way back in 2009 was the last time I had preached a series in Ruth — 14 years! I was surprised and shocked, but then I got to thinking, and I began to wonder how much life has changed since 2009.
I expected to see a change in our world financially, socially, and spiritually. I expected to see technological growth. But, I was surprised to find how fast these changes have taken place. How fast has life changed in the last 14 years?
The cost of living has increased dramatically. The U.S. dollar has lost 40% of its value since 2009. A $100 in 2009 is equivalent in purchasing power of $142.22 today. It will cost you forty percent more to buy the same amount of groceries, fill your tank with gas, or pay your utilities bill.
The Federal Debt
In 2000, the federal debt was $5.6 trillion. In 9 years, it more than doubled, for the national debt in 2009 was $11.9 trillion. Since then, in just 14 years, it has almost tripled. The national debt today is $32,681,560,575,804. That’s 32 TRILLION dollars!
In 1982, our national debt hit the one trillion dollar mark for the first time, which means from 1790 to 1982, it took 192 years for our country to reach the one trillion dollar debt milestone. In 2000, we were 5.6 trillion dollars in debt, a 5-fold increase in 18 years. Since then, we have seen another increase. This time a six-fold increase from 5.6 trillion dollars to a staggering 32.6 trillion dollars. It is not just the intense amount but the speed at which it has happened.
The world population first hit one billion in 1804. It did not hit the two billion mark until 1927, which means it took over 100 years to double. Today the world population in 2023 is eight billion. In just over 200 years, the population has increased eightfold. Again, it is not just the intense number but the speed at which it has happened.
What About Socially?
How much has changed socially in our culture over the last 14 years? On April 3, 2009, the Iowa Supreme Court unanimously rejected a state law banning same-sex marriage. On April 27, 2009, same-sex couples were granted marriage licenses for the first time in Iowa. After Massachusetts and Connecticut, Iowa was the third state to allow same-sex marriages.
On May 26, 2009, the California Supreme Court upheld the ban on same-sex marriage. Fourteen years ago, California banned same-sex marriage!
On November 3, 2009, Maine voters overturned a law allowing same-sex marriage, which the state governor had instated in May of 2009. Maine was the 31st state to block same-sex marriage.
It seems almost naïve to try to write about the advancements made in technology because it seems as if any article written on this subject is outdated by the time it is published. That’s how fast technology is moving and changing.
To put this in a better perspective, let’s go back to December 17, 1903, in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. That was the day the Wright brothers experienced their first successful flight. On that December morning, man took wings for the very first time. The flight only lasted twelve seconds and covered a distance of just over 800 feet, but we were airborne!
Fast-forward fifty-four years to October 1957, and the world had Sputnik. The Soviet Union launched Sputnik, which became the first-ever satellite in space. In 1993, the United States and Russia merged their space technology, and by 1998 the International Space Station was launched.
AI for good: UN summit aims to reduce concerns over AI
On July 11, 2021, Richard Branson, the billionaire founder of Virgin Galactic, flew his privately owned rocket into space. Then on December 11, a civilian crew of six flew for eleven minutes into space. It took thousands of years for man to be able to fly for 12 seconds and travel eight hundred feet. Then within 118 years, man was taking trips into space and returning the same day. That’s an example of how fast technology is advancing.
Debt has been increasing at a detrimental pace, and the world population has risen rapidly. Society and technology are changing almost daily. But what about our spiritual lives?
Jesus warned about deception and false messiahs. Jesus spoke about end times apostasy, and the apostle Paul echoed this warning in 1 Timothy 4:1 and 2 Thessalonians 2:3. According to those who track church attendance and the decline in spiritual growth, those prophetic words of Jesus and Paul are proving to be true.

Again, the amazing aspect of this is the speed at which things have changed. Since the pandemic, a 2002 American Religious Benchmark survey revealed, “Young people, those who are single, and those who self-identified liberals, ceased attending religious service.” The most significant departure from church services is among those under the age of thirty.
Our world is changing fast. Interestingly, conferences highlighting Bible prophecy in January of 2022 spoke on topics such as the Abraham Accords and Israel’s role in world affairs. Now, just eighteen months later, those conference speakers speak on AI and quantum computing issues.

Because Scripture is so clear on financial insecurity, society degrading, technical advancement, and spiritual decline in the end times, I am not surprised to see these as issues we face today. It does surprise me how fast all of these changes are happening.
In Matthew 24, when Jesus spoke about the end times, the last birth pain He speaks of is found in verse 14. “This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come.”
America is NOT mentioned in the Bible. Why? Discernment.
America (5) Divided, Split, Cut, or Fractured and Separated into FIVE ‘5’ Pieces:
Zechariah 12:3 And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.
Matthew 12:25 And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand:
Paul Rolland | Night Watchman | Night Watchman Ministries | Divided Untied (7) America During the Coming Seven Year Tribulation
Mark 3:24 And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.
Mark 3:25 And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.
Luke 11:17 But he, knowing their thoughts, said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house divided against a house falleth.
Luke 12:53 The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.
The US Government has become politically divided and is in discord and disunity. The political division affecting and splitting America is a direct result of its efforts to ‘divide Jerusalem’ via the ‘Deal of the Century’ or the regional covenant of peace and security in the Middle East. Throughout scripture, God has made it abundantly clear that Jerusalem is the ‘apple of his eye’ and has his stamp of ownership on it … above all other cities on earth. God makes it adequately clear in Zechariah 12:3 that any nation that attempts to cut or divide up Jerusalem, will themselves be cut up or divided. As such, the US is cut or divided politically because of its leadership role in attempting to split God’s Holy City of earthly Jerusalem. Plain and simple.
The New Madrid Fault Line and Impending Doom. Pastor Robert Breaker
OK. So it’s clear about the accelerating implosion of political unity in the US. Political discord will get worse and become angrier, antagonistic, confrontational, and hateful with little to no compromise, concession, agreement or unity. Contempt and distrust rules the day. Some would say this is already the case not only between Democrats and Republicans, but also within each party. Whether you believe the US being extremely divided is a result of God’s wrath for its role in dividing Jerusalem or not, it doesn’t matter. The fact remains that the US is becoming bitterly more and more divided. This division has also taken place in culture (LGBTQP+ social inclusiveness agenda), economics (income inequality), etc. The list can go on. America is divided on so many levels, not just politically.
Why is there no mention of the ‘United’ States in Bible Prophecy?
Prophetic Discernment: Seven (7) year ‘book-end’ solar eclipses, August 2017 to April 2024. God’s divine completion to His plan or purpose for the once powerful and great ‘United’ States. Seven (7) spirits affected; Financially, Politically, Militarily, Geographically, Geo-Politically, Spiritually and Socially. No further need of the United States to be Israel’s ‘Big Brother’ watching over her and protecting her and giving her financial aid. By the start of 2024, the once ‘United’ States will have descended into anarchy, chaos, rebellion, the bottomless pit, despair, insolvency and strife. And irrelevancy, divide, confusion, bitterness, family against family and against its self, discord and despondency. For 70 (7) years, the United States was Israel’s ‘worldly’ protector and benefactor (1948-2018). The American ‘millennium or empire’ lasted from 1620 to 2020. 400 years. America has been wandering ‘in the desert’ for 400 years and time has expired. 40(0) is a time or period of ‘trial or testing.’
Watchman Mr. Greg Laurie ‘All the More Urgent’ Monday, January 18, 2021
“This is all the more urgent, for you know how late it is; time is running out. Wake up, for our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed” (Romans 13:11 NLT).
I think we could make a very good case for finding Russia in Bible prophecy. I think we could make a pretty good case for finding China in Bible prophecy. And we certainly could make an airtight case for finding Iran in Bible prophecy—and Israel as well. But we cannot find the United States of America.
How is it that the reigning superpower on the planet today doesn’t seem to be mentioned?
No one knows the answer, but let’s consider an option. What if the Rapture were to take America out of its lead role?
There are approximately 328.2 million people in the United States. For the sake of illustration, I’ll round that number to 300 million. I don’t know how many are followers of Christ, but I read recently that 65 percent of Americans identify as Christians.
To be very conservative, let’s say that 10 percent of the people in the United States of America are Christians. Now, imagine for a moment what would happen if 30 million people (or more) suddenly were to leave Planet Earth in the Rapture—people who work in industries, government, the military, and every area imaginable.
Do you think that would affect our nation?
Of course it would. Effectively, America would collapse overnight.
I don’t know the reason our nation isn’t mentioned in Bible prophecy, but I do know this: Jesus Christ is returning. The Bible says, “This is all the more urgent, for you know how late it is; time is running out. Wake up, for our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed” (Romans 13:11 NLT).
If you’re a believer who’s living a compromised life, you need to repent and get right with God. And if you don’t have a relationship with Jesus Christ, then you’ve got to wake up and get right with God. Wake up. Jesus is coming. Are you ready?

|Two Choices Before Us Tuesday, July 4, 2023 Greg Laurie|
|No country lasts forever. Rome once was the reigning superpower on earth, with the most powerful military anywhere. But before Rome collapsed externally, it collapsed internally. In The Complete Story of Civilization Historian Will Durant said of Rome, “A great civilization is not conquered from without until it has destroyed itself within. The essential causes of Rome’s decline lay in her people, her morals, her class struggle, her failing trade, her bureaucratic despotism, her stifling taxes, her consuming wars.” The difference between Rome and the United States is that we initially built this nation on a Judeo-Christian foundation. But we have strayed dramatically from the original vision of our Founding Fathers that produced this place we call the United States of America. I think we would do well to look at the soul of our nation right now. What once was freedom of religion seems to have become freedom from religion. |
Our society has succeeded in getting God out of our schools, out of our sporting events, out of our public places, and out of our workplaces. But here’s what we need to remember. The freedom we enjoy today is built on the foundation of absolute truth. And when you remove that foundation, this freedom actually can turn into anarchy. People in our nation are saying they don’t like the idea of things that are right and things that are wrong. They don’t want to live by those standards anymore. Instead, they want to live according to moral relativism so they can choose their own truths. The United States of America, like every other nation on earth, has its days numbered. We need divine intervention. We need God’s help. My belief about the future of our nation is that we have two choices before us: one is judgment and the other is revival. If we do not have revival, then I think judgment is inevitable.
But how can they call on him (Jesus Christ) to save them unless they believe in him (Jesus Christ)? And how can they believe in him (Jesus Christ) if they have never heard about him (Jesus Christ)? And how can they hear about him (Jesus Christ) unless someone tells them?” Romans 10:14

. . . “That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. (John 3:15-17). For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13).
C. Call upon His name, Confess with your heart and with your lips that Jesus is your Lord and Savior.
. . . “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” (Romans 10:9-10).
. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.” (John 1:8-10).
. . . “And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. (John 2:2).
. . . “In this was manifested the love of god toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world. Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.” (1 John 4:9, 14-15).
. . . “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.” (Romans 5:8-10).
. . . “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23).
. . . “Jesus saith unto them, I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6).
. . . “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth.” (Romans 1:16).
. . . “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Acts: 4:12).
. . . “Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth for there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” (1 Timothy 2:4-6).
. . . “For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Thessalonians 5:9).
. . . “But as many as received him, to them gave the power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.” (John 1:12).
True Church / Bride of Christ Spared from God’s Wrath:
Romans 5:8-10. “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.
