1999-2010 ????? Unknown Future of the Fifth group of Twelve years.
One World Economy
- The European Union and the World Bank will probably institute a new international regulation of the world economy by way of a new telecommunications and financial services.
- Biometrics the statistical study of biological phenomena, has become the new buzzword for hi-tech fingerprinting allowing for a global financial security system.
- Some have predicted that by the year 2000 that Capitalism will experience a collapse similar to the one that occurred to Communism in 1988.
This could mean worldwide unemployment, deflation, stock market crashes and bank failures.
One World Political Power
- Will the nation of Israel be forced to accept a compromise peace guaranteed by a new leader of the future ten nation confederacy?
- Is this the beginning of the three-and-a-half years of peace?
- Judaism must be revived, and the Temple must be eventually rebuilt (see Dan 8:14; Rev. 11:2).
- Some scholars believe that the "Prince of Rosh" or "the king of the North" (Ezek. 38:14-17; Dan. 11:40-45; Joel 2:1-10,20) will invade Israel and be mysteriously destroyed?
I believe this event has already happened as you will see later in this section in the Daniel and Ezekiel prophecies.
One World Religion
In the church look for
- open denial of biblical truth,
- departure from Christian morality,
- a sweep of spiritism, occult and demon worship as never seen before.
- Jerusalem should become a center of religious worship for Islamic, Evangelical, Roman Catholic and Judaism.
- True believers should disappear at this time in "The Rapture," if it is true that they are taken before the Tribulation begins.
As you know this subject is of great controversy.
Every soul on earth will face their own tribulation when this period encompasses the earth.
- The combining of the major religions becomes a tool for the False Prophet who aids the antichrist’s rise to world power.
- Eventually the Antichrist will come and destroy the established Church and demand worship as world dictator.

The Persecution Begins
- Believers of this period will suffer intense persecution and are martyred by the thousands as the world dictates for change or desecrates the things which are holy.
- If by chance the Temple has been built during this period and this desecration occurs to it then the Jews will recognize the real Messiah at this point (see Rev. 11:10-11).
Environmental Changes Begin Around The World

Rev. 6:9-10 (Fifth Seal)
Rev. 6:9 And when He opened the fifth seal ( One source claims that the last three seals relate to the invisible, as the first four to the visible world; the fifth, to the martyrs who have died as believers; the sixth, to those who have died, or will be found as unbelievers as Christ’s coming),
I saw (in spirit)
under the altar the souls of those who had been slain (‘Sphazo or Sphatto’ to slay as victims for sacrifice, of Christ as the Lamb, persecuted and martyred possibly during the Great Tribulation)
because of the word of God,
and because of their testimony which they had held (pp. for being faithful in their witnessing).
Rev. 6:10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying.
"How long, O Lord, holy and true, do You not judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?"
(These passages are not specific to some particular martyrdom’s, but have occurred, and are occurring, and shall occur until the fulfillment before the second coming. This verse states "Until when the Lord, Greek master, the holy one, will avenge the blood from them, the ungodly, that dwell on the earth, which speculates that the Church is now in its heavenly place. )
