The world is on an inexorable path toward the apocalypse, currently exhibiting many of the Bible’s prophesied signs of the end times. When the Jews regained nationhood in May 1948, the countdown began toward the promised return of the Messiah. In Fifty Signs of the End Times, compelling new information is shared demonstrating that the end-time clock is nearing midnight, including: • How the alignment of the nations soon to come against Israel is exactly as prophesied in the Bible. • The many ways that God has honored His promise to richly bless Israel in the latter days – including the discovery of new energy sources. • Recent and detailed information concerning the coming Tribulation Temple. • Amazing accounts demonstrating how God is pouring out His Spirit in these latter days. • How God has miraculously protected Israel in its recent wars. • Revealing how twelve of Christ’s prophecies in His Olivet Discourse have come true in our time. Dr. David Nichols explains these intriguing signs, and dozens more, in meticulous detail. We are fast approaching Armageddon. However, this need not cause alarm. God has provided an escape. “I have well over fifty prophecy volumes in my library and can honestly say that none display more of the detailed and accurate research as seen in this book. Every prophecy student worth his salt needs to read it!” ---Dr. H.L. Willmington, Founder and Dean, Liberty Home Bible Institute “David Nichols has written an excellent study on the signs of the end times. His biblical knowledge, medical and scientific perspective, and analysis of the culture make this an incredible study. Don’t miss it.” ---Dr. Ed Hindson, Asst. Chancellor, Liberty University; Host of “The King is Coming”
Zizek analyzes the end of the world at the hands of the “four riders of the apocalypse.” The underlying premise of the book is a simple one: the global capitalist system is approaching an apocalyptic zero-point. Its four riders of the apocalypse are the ecological crisis, the consequences of the biogenetic revolution, the imbalances within the system itself (problems with intellectual property, the forthcoming struggle for raw materials, food and water), and the explosions of social divisions and exclusions. Society’s first reaction is ideological denial, then explosions of anger at the injustices of the new world order, attempts at bargaining, and when this fails, depression and withdrawal set in. Finally, after passing through this zero-point we no longer perceive it as a threat, but as the chance for a new beginning. or, as Mao Zedong might have put it, “There is great disorder under heaven, the situation is excellent.” Žižek traces out in detail these five stances, makes a plea for a return to the Marxian critique of political economy, and sniffs out the first signs of a budding communist culture in all its diverse forms—in utopias that range from Kafka’s community of mice to the collective of freak outcasts in the TV series Heroes.
In der globalisierten Welt geht die Angst vor einem Verlust der kulturellen Identität um, und fast überall formieren sich die selbsterklärten Retter: In Frankreich gibt Marine Le Pen vor, sie »im Namen des Volkes« zu verteidigen, die AfD fordert in ihrem Grundsatzprogramm »deutsche Leitkultur statt Multikulturalismus«, und die Identitäre Bewegung ruft gleich in mehreren Ländern mit aggressiven Aktionen zur ihrer Bewahrung auf. Doch gibt es überhaupt so etwas wie eine kulturelle Identität? In seinem neuen Buch zeigt François Jullien, dass dieser Glaube eine Illusion ist. Das Wesen der Kultur, so Jullien, ist die Veränderung. Er plädiert dafür, Bräuche, Traditionen oder eine gemeinsame Sprache als Ressourcen zu begreifen, die prinzipiell allen zur Verfügung stehen.

The end times have seen a great amount of interest within the last two decades, but there hasn’t been a comprehensive overview of biblical prophecy and eschatology for more than five decades. Mark Hitchcock’s book is that comprehensive resource for the twenty-first century The End will do for eschatology what Randy Alcorn’s Heaven did for people’s understanding of heaven. It will provide a solid biblical foundation for Christians to explore the essential truths around this topic—the end of the world.
This book was written because I found out how important it is to give your life to Jesus. Now I understand why it is important to accept Him as your Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Not only was I blinded, but I could have been dead and in hell. I thank and praise God for His grace and mercy on me; for enlightening me, caring for me and for giving me hope. For loving me and for who I am. I thank Him for teaching me the truth. For letting me be able to write this book. I want the world to know young and old, no matter what is wrong or went wrong in your life, you can make it.
Wake Up! Preparing for the End-Times Outpouring is a trumpet calling the body of Christ to wake up to the fact that we are living in the "post defeat of the saints era" (see Dan. 7:21). Wake Up! gives the historical evidence of the defeat of the saints; in contrast it looks at the characters of Daniel and his friends and the first disciples and shows how they acted and responded to the stimulus from their culture, so they could be effective witnesses for Jesus Christ. Wake Up! encourages believers to become overcomers at the end of the end-times and to learn to counteract against the defeat of the saints. Believers are called to be continually filled by the Holy Spirit, to learn to release the gifts of the Spirit to destroy the works of the Devil, and to bring in the harvest and glorify the Lord. You will learn: The defeat of the saints prophesied in Daniel 7:21 is shown with numerous historical evidences how the defeat of the saints has occurred over the past three centuries. The saints are now living in the "post-defeat of the saints era," but they are not to remain defeated. They need to be continually filled by the Holy Spirit and then demonstrate who Jesus is to the whole world. The little horn is still trying to defeat the saints through the Illuminati, whose goal it is to completely wipe out Christianity with their eugenic plans wanting to kill 90 percent of the world. The Ancient of Days has been pouring out His Spirit to help the saints to defeat the works of the Devil. Believers are to receive the Holy Spirit continually and then learn to demonstrate the gifts of the Spirit so we can bring glory to the Lord.
What does Bible prophecy tell us about the time of the end? Are we living in the end time? When will be the end of the world? For thousands of years people have been fascinated with predictions of the end of the world. If we look into the inspired writings of the biblical prophets and apostles, we find many prophecies that refer to the time of the end. Should we take them seriously? Are world conditions such that these prophecies could be fulfilled in our day? Jesus Christ Himself talked of a future time so horrendous that no human lives would be spared "unless those days were shortened" (Matthew 24:22). Did He have our time in mind? Many biblical warnings leave us in no doubt that increasingly cataclysmic events will occur before God's direct intervention in human affairs. These terrifying prophecies will see their fulfillment at some future time. The crucial question is when. This eye-opening Bible study aid booklet, Are We Living in the Time of the End?, examines exactly what Jesus, His apostles and the biblical prophets really said about the intriguing days they referred to as the time of the end. You need this vital information! Chapters in this ebook: -- Are We Living in the Time of the End? -- What Is the Time of the End? -- A World in Perpetual Crisis -- Noah and Our Time: A Sobering Parallel -- The End of the Age -- The Time of the End: The End of What? -- Biblical Terms for the Coming End of Man's Age -- Jesus Christ's Olivet Prophecy: Where Are We Now? -- Did Jesus Christ Foretell Devastating Storms? -- 'This Generation Will Not Pass' -- The End Time in the Book of Revelation -- The Population Explosion and Prophecy -- God's Framework for End-Time Prophecy -- Preparing for the End Time -- What Can You Do? Inside this Bible Study Aid ebook: "But we should remember that Jesus made it clear that no one could know the exact time of His return: "… Of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only" (Matthew 24:36)." "Some think the subject of the end time in the Bible is mainly confined to the New Testament. But beginning in Genesis, the first book of the Bible, the Scriptures look beyond our present evil age to the time of the establishing of God's Kingdom. Old Testament scriptures have much to say about events that take place during the end of this age and the following "world to come."" "When Scripture mentions "the time of the end" or "the end of the age," it is referring to the coming end of the present evil age. This age—in reality the age of Satan—will draw to an end, replaced by the age of God's rule over and guidance of all of humanity." "Revelation is a book written to reveal the future, and Jesus Christ is the One who does the revealing...Here is the theme of Revelation—the time of the end of the age and the return of Jesus Christ to establish God's Kingdom on earth." "How should we view prophecy? Can it provide spiritual benefits? The apostle Peter mentioned that prophecy should serve to strengthen our hope and faith in the future (2 Peter 1:19)."
While the turn of the century has seen a number of secular sources proclaiming the end of the world—such as Y2K or the end of the Mayan calendar—only to see these events come and go, there persists yet another source that still accurately foretells the events and phenomena we see play out on the world’s scene. Instead of focusing on fleeting signs and events, the Bible shows us how a growing tide of global conflict, human suffering, and natural disasters points toward a powerful truth: we are living in the end times. In The Second Coming of Jesus Christ: An Analysis of End Time Bible Prophecy, author David L. Toney explores how contemporary events not only parallel but also signify the fulfilment of Bible prophecies throughout both the Old and New Testaments. From the return of the Jews to Israel as foretold in Ezekiel, to the rise of the Antichrist as anticipated in Revelation, discover prophecies and the modern-day events related to the end of the six-thousand-year reign of humanity, the stirrings of World War III, and the appearance of catastrophic natural phenomena. That we are living in the end times is good news for good people and bad news for bad people, and the most important event prophesied to take place in these latter years—the second coming of Jesus Christ—will soon take place.
