The 2024 edition will be out in January, Feb., or March.
This is a radical new interpretation of biblical prophecy. I say new, because it is unlike any other end time teaching. The first edition came out in 2013 and eventually reached number four in the Christian Prophecy category on Amazon, but it is still largely unknown. However, I have continued to study and make more discoveries, and every few years have issued updated editions. This 2024 edition has several important updates and revisions over all previous editions. So unless you are willing to learn a different view than what you have previously believed, this book is not for you.
This interpretation of Bible prophecy is 99% different than what has ever been taught. How could there be a viable new interpretation, you ask? The Bible says that the correct interpretation will not be understood until we actually reach the end; “the words are closed up and sealed until the end time” (Daniel 12:9), yet the dominant views today are at least 150 years old.
I have not tried to support a particular theological position, but I have merely studied the Scriptures to find out what they mean and have changed my views to match what I found in the Bible. I began my study believing in the Pre-tribulation Rapture, but was forced to change it after years of study. Most of the existing belief systems for the last-days have a few elements that are correct, but the complete picture they each present is grossly inaccurate.
This book is the result of more than 40 years of research and piecing it all together like a giant jigsaw puzzle. In previous editions of this book, I stated that the puzzle was “mostly complete.” I now can say it is 99.9% complete.
What does the puzzle look like once you put all the pieces together? It will come as a shock to most people, but the infamous Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse have already ridden during the past 2,000 years of wars, famines, and persecution. But I don’t just make that claim or assumption; I found evidence in the text and world history that shows it.
And the Great Tribulation (GT) is not 7-years long; nowhere in the Bible does it say anything about a 7-year peace treaty. Daniel’s 70th week in Daniel 9:27 does NOT refer to a 7-year treaty with the Antichrist. That passage is being grossly misinterpreted. The original Protestant view of that verse is correct for the first half of the 70th week; which was the 3.5-year ministry of Jesus. Only the last half remains. There is also NO 7-year period mentioned in the book of Revelation, but only two different periods of 3.5 years, which overlap.
The Great Tribulation (GT) will likely last 10 years, and those years have already started. The Trumpet judgments will begin in only a few years. It is my opinion that 2020 was the first year of the GT. Things will continue to be bad in one way or another, until they get worse. This has proven to be the case thus far, as I write this in late 2023.
Since January 2020, there have been major increases in volcanic eruptions and earthquakes; increasing shortages of many manufactured goods and food, and growing economic, social, and political unrest. Now Russia has invaded Ukraine. I expect that this war will grow into a European war and then into WW3; only time will tell, but the timing is right!
In previous editions of this book, I limited the Mark of the Beast to the 10-horned empire. However, I now have a different understanding of it. There is a global system that is being developed, yet, each nation, or empire, will have their own version of that system which connects to it. Therefore, even though Revelation refers to the Mark of the 10-horned beast, I believe that any nation that uses that electronic control/tracking money system will be part of the same system and therefore subject to the same divine penalties.
This book presents evidence that the 10-horned beast of Revelation 13 is NOT connected to the EU or UN, but is a revived Ottoman Empire. The 10-horned empire will rule all of the Middle-East, which is the “whole world” of the Bible, which will be proven. There is never going to be any government that actually rules the entire world; though there are some DeepState groups who are trying. The horns will be ten Islamic nations in the Middle East and nearby regions. However, since we do not know all the details in advance, it is possible that one or more nations in Europe could be taken over by Islam from the inside and then join the Islamic empire (only time will tell).
The Ottoman Empire was wounded in the 1800s but was given the fatal blow during World War 1. The nation of Turkey was formed from what was left of the Ottoman Empire. It will rise to become the final head of the beast.
Islam is different from all the other religions that do not believe in Jesus, because Islam is the only religion that officially declares that Jesus is not the Son of God; this is the Biblical definition of Antichrist.
You may believe that this book is like a few other books, such as Joel Richardson’s, The Islamic Antichrist, but my view is not like his, because he does NOT actually believe the Antichrist will be a Muslim, but only a Muslim until he claims to be God. Richardson believes that all Muslims will leave Islam to follow the new religion of the Antichrist. This is not really a Muslim Antichrist, then, is it? No, but I present many pages of evidence that Islam will literally be the religion of the Antichrist, not merely his former religion.
It is likely that the first horn of the 10-horn beast of Revelation came to power in 2021 when the Taliban took over Afghanistan. Expect them to uproot three nations from the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) that are just north of Afghanistan. The full explanation is shown in Daniel 2, 4, 7, 11, and 12, which provides insight into the coming little horn and radical Islam.
The correct interpretation of Bible prophecy proves the Pre-tribulation Rapture theory is false, which is seen repeatedly throughout this book. I even found the smoking gun that kills the Pre-trib Rapture!
My expository and analytical method of interpreting Bible prophecy reveals many surprising and important insights never before seen. Then there is the surprising revelation about the image of the beast that has nothing to do with computers or anything you have heard about before.
In previous editions of this book, I did not have the correct understanding of the 1,290 days, and 1,335 days of Daniel 12. As a result, it messed up my understanding of the timing of events during the last 3.5 years; including the timing of the Rapture. But in 2023, I made new discoveries that put those pieces together. So I now have a much better understanding of the timing of the Rapture and related end time events.
Another surprising discovery is that there will be two Raptures; the first one will be limited and secret, and take place before the 7 Bowls of Wrath, the second one will be general and take place literally at the very end. Unfortunately, the details of the second one take many chapters, so it is found in Book 3 of this series, The Approaching Apocalypse and Three Days of Darkness. One reason it is in BK3 is because this book is about the period of 6th and 7th Bowls of Wrath, which include the actual return of Christ, and judgment upon the world, and full Wrath of God.
I originally called my interpretation Pre-Wrath yet Post-Trib, but I now call it Pre-Wrath and Post-Trib., yet, it is vastly different from all other teaching on Pre-Wrath and Post-Trib. Only the Rapture timing is similar. (For example, the majority of Pre-Wrath teaching has the Antichrist arising in Europe and ruling the whole planet; with a 7-year Great Tribulation; so my view is not like any other Pre-Wrath book.)
This book also proves that most of the Jews in Israel will convert before Christ returns. It is plainly stated in the Bible several times! Which makes one wonder how the opposite view could become a popular doctrine, that Christ will return before they convert.
There can be a lot more information gleaned from the Bible’s prophecies discussed in this book than what is written here, but the main focus of this interpretation is what will actually take place in the future, which we need to know and fully understand because we are now living in the end years. That is why this interpretation is practical, not theological. Though my interpretation greatly bears on doctrine, the information here is not presented or argued from a theological point of view.
This book series was originally five volumes; a 4-part series plus one more on the Antichrist that came later. The first volume came out in 2013, followed by the other volumes in 2014, 2015, 2016, and then 2020 for The Final Antichrist. I have now put Books 1 & 2 together (BK1 had the title, Discoveries in Bible Prophecy; and BK2 had the title, The Beast and False Prophet Revealed). Book 3 had the title, The Fall of Babylon The Great America; so it is now called, The Fall of Babylon and The Final Antichrist.) So now there are only three volumes in the series.
Every few years, I have published updated editions as I gained more insights and pieced the puzzle together better. I still might not be 100% accurate, but there are no areas that concern me as before. The end-time picture seen in this book is far more accurate than any other teaching on the subject.
As I stated in previous editions, the closer we get to the end, the clearer the picture will become, so I may need to make only minor updates in the future. Who could have seen that Afghanistan would become the first horn of the beast? Like Apostle Paul said, we see through a glass darkly.
I believe the reader will get the most out of this book by reading it slowly and underlining many sentences, because it is very easy to misread critically important statements, or even miss one entirely. So I do some underlining for you.
Previous editions of this book have included several pages of extra-biblical prophecies because I believe them to be genuine, but I have removed them and put them on my website. Those prophecies agree with my interpretation here and provide more details about future events.
But, you may ask, what about world government? There is no such thing; I prove that it is a false belief in this book, many times over. Rev. 13 twice says that the beast will “make war.” Who does the Antichrist make war against if he rules the whole world? He wars against other nations, invading them just as all previous empires have. The “whole world” of the Bible is the Middle Eastern / Mediterranean world (including part of southern Europe), not the whole planet. I explain in detail the passages that are wrongly used to support the belief in a world government.
Many people are now suspecting that Klaus Schwab’s World Economic Forum (WEF) along with the World Health Organization (WHO) and the UN, will bring in the long anticipated world government; complete with electronic surveillance and mind control. They are certainly trying; that is their plan, but they will not actually take control, because WW3 will stop that from happening. I explain the WEF and how it will be destroyed in WW3 in the next book, The Fall of Babylon and the Final Antichrist. Because it is actually part of Babylon the Great that has its tentacles wrapped around the whole world, and even rides the beast!
One of the reasons that the correct interpretation of Bible prophecy could not be known before the end times (Daniel 12), is because of the vast amount of information that was needed to be piece together the puzzle. This interpretation could not have been written before the invention of the internet. I was able to find reference material that cannot be found in the largest research libraries in the world. Therefore, before the interpretation presented here could never have been put together.
