There Will Be Six Events to Cause A Change in the Times and Seasons
††††††††† Speaking of God in Daniel 2:21, we are told:ďAnd he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:ĒThis phrase, times and seasons is in Acts 1:6-7. ďWhen they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel? And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power.Ē The Greed word for ĎTimes,í is Ďchronos, khron'-os,í from which we get the word chronology and Seasons is the Greek Ďkairos, kahee-ros'. As an example, I could hold my hands out in front of me as a representation of a space in time that I will live and say that that time period is a set time period of 70 years. But during that time period there are seasons for different things, as when you graduated from school, when you got married, when a child was born, when you are born again and finally when you would die. We are all living in the chronos of time where there is a time line but we have to understand that within that time frame there are seasons that occur. In the Bible there are prophetic seasons.
††††††††† Six things, that as they begin to occur will be a sign of the shifting of the times and seasons. The first thing will be the death of the current Pope. That will bring about a shifting of the times and seasons. In the fifth century, there was a man named St. Malichy (donít remember correct spelling) that as supposedly a very godly man who had a vision of the number of leaders in the Catholic Church. He said there would be a total of 112 Popes. The current Pope of the Catholic Church is now 110. The next, or 111th Pope will be called the glory of the olive, meaning that either he could be Jewish or that he will be dark skinned or be involved in peace negotiations because in the Bible the olive branch alludes to peace. Then after him will come number 112 and in his day the antichrist would invade Rome and destroy it. This is teaching that goes all the way beck to the 12th century. The false prophet of Revelation 13, who is the religious leader, the lamb with 2 horns, comes representing Christianity but is not true Christianity. Even many Catholics are preaching that the false prophet will be either a defective Pope or an invalidly elected Pope and they go back to this prophecy that their would be this exact number of Popeís. In the Vatican they have only enough space to bury 2 more Popeís. That space was also done based on the prophecy. The next Pope will represent a major shifting of the Catholic Church and also be a pivotal point in prophetic things.
The second thing that will change the times and seasons will be the removal of Saddam Hussein. We all know that America is in a war against terrorism and Saddam is involved in terrorism. It is amusing how many try to say there is no evidence that Saddam is involved in terrorism or in the attack on September 11th,† 2001. On the internet in the month of June, months before September 11th, bin Laden had put out a statement that he and Saddam were going to attack America at their economic center. This was on the Internet, an article and their original target date was July 4th, but it didnít happen. Then according to a Russian specialist the next date was August 19th and it didnít happen, so September 11th was selected. Mohammed Atta was the terrorist that actually chose the date. Bin Laden didnít choose the date. It was done in cryptic form. He wrote a man who was supposed to talk to the hijackers. The riddle involved to sticks and a cake with a stick running through it and that was to be the date for the attack. The two sticks being 11 and the cake with a stick being 9. The point is that there is no question that Iraq was indirectly involved, whether financing or supporting the terrorist actions, but they have been heavily involved in creating weapons of mass destruction. And according to intelligence, if he is not dealt with soon, he will have such a weapon that he will get into America on a ship through another country to a sleeper person in the states, who could get that weapon which could cause major destruction in an American city within months. Saddam is ruling from the country of Iraq, the ancient territory of Persia. It is the center of what is known as the 10/40 window. In that rectangle 95% of the people in the world unreached by the Gospel are located. Baghdad, Iraq and the remains of Babylon, which is about 20 miles from Baghdad are the center of this window. The Iraqis sent the Israelis a cryptic message warning them not to try to fight them in a time of war and signed it - the Babylonians. The Iraqi people are very aware that their land is the land of ancient Babylon and they are descendants of those people. Many people who know Saddam say that he thinks he is the reincarnation of Nebuchadnezzar and he has spent 100 million rebuilding the ancient ruins of Babylon, but that was destroyed in the 1991 Gulf War. Syria, Iraq and Lebanon, especially Iraq will become the headquarters of the first 42 months of the tribulation period. This attack on Iraq has to happen eventually, because Babylon and the spirit of ancient Babylon has to arise again. Those four angels that are bound in the Euphrates River in Revelation and the Euphrates River runs through Iraq. It is important to realize that all the prophetic events of the last days, especially the latter part of the tribulation, the kings of the East coming across the Euphrates River, the 4 angels that are in the Euphrates River that are loosed during the tribulation all happen in the area of Iraq. Iraq, like Israel will be in the news from here on out. So, the removal of Saddam will be an event to trigger a change in times and seasons.
The third thing to affect the times and seasons will be the threat of terrorism in America. Bill Hall, a CIA agent, gave a warning in the 1970ís about our allowing people from Islamic countries to come into America on student visas and then werenít leaving. The CIA believed that these people would eventually be involved in terrorism in the near future. He even spoke of planes being used for terrorism in major cities back in the time of 1974-76. He also talked about how the Ayatollah Khoumanni, who was in exile in France at the time, would take over Iran and tried to warn the Shan of Iran. When he was in Saudi Arabia, he also warned the king of Saudi Arabia that a retarded nephew was being trained by the Russianís to assassinate him. They didnít pay a lot of attention to Billís warning and eventually that king was assassinated as predicted. The point is that the threat of terrorism in America has changed the face of America forever. There is a group named by the FBI, apocalyptic terrorists. There are people indicating that one of the leading Imamís of the Islamic religion believes that Islam is in its 40th generation and that is prophetically important to them. This particular group of Muslims believes there has to be a war against the East and the West and the West has to be destroyed and the way they intend to do it is terrorism. Some think that al-Qaida will only attempt the big things to get the big attention. That is not true, they will attempt anything they can to try and affect the economic way we live in America. One of bin Ladenís messages to the terrorist groups was, affect the way that they live, affect the way they go out, make sure they are afraid to go out. Luke 21:26 ďMen's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.Ē We see that happening. The third thing is that terrorism has come to American shores. Another major attack in America will cause a shifting of things in America.
Fourth, the war rumors that continues between India and Pakistan. The Hindu and the Islamic religions do not get along at all. Kashmere is claimed by both countries. Though it is politically under the control of India, it is predominately Muslim. Even some Hinduís have gone to Nostradamus and translated his writings to try and determine what is going to happen prophetically between the Hindus and Muslims. Here is an example of their translations. ďFrom the peninsula where three seas meet comes the ruler to whom Thursday is Holy. (Thursday is the holy day for Hinduís). His wisdom and might all nations will agree to oppose him and Asia will be folly.Ē Another: ďThe empire of Islam, by Hinduís overthrown, the majority of Muslims will succumb the radioactive fallout by India blown making Mohammed forever silent and numb.Ē Radioactive fallout is a phrase that Nostradamus would never have known to use in 1855. These Hindus have taken these quotes supposedly from Nostradamus to promote it in their religion and saying the day will come when the Hinduís and Muslims will go to war and that the Muslims will be completely and totally defeated. This isnít worth a lot of comment prophetically, but it could be why the antichrist, will be a fanatical Muslim and why there will be a 200 million man army crossing the Euphrates river, because India is in that direction, it could be an actual Hindu army that comes in against the antichrist instead of a Chinese army as many have thought. But these are things that are at best a theory. The point to be made here is simply that if anything happens between India and Pakistan and the other Muslim countries there near India, it could turn into a major war breaking out between India and all the Muslim countries in the East. Though no one expects this, no one expected us to be in a war against terrorism when George W. Bush was elected president. No one expected the Twin Towers to be destroyed. The point is that sudden changes have already happened and will happen again in the near future. You can go to bed one night and major changes take place or begin to take place by morning.
The fifth thing deals with the controversy of Jerusalem. Underground at the Temple site is a place called Solomonís stables. It is where the pinnacle of the temple is underground that you donít see behind the large stones. They know that in certain areas when they hit the stones, it is hollow underneath and so they know that there are vaults and chambers under that area that they would like to get into. They want to destroy all evidence of the Jews having been on that mount in the past as they try to keep up their claim that there has never been a Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount. Also the Muslims are interested in building the worldís largest Mosque on the Temple Mount and the Palestinians have already drawn up plans for it, to make it impossible for the Jews to ever be able to rebuild a Temple on the Temple Mount. The second thing is that they talk about taking the area of Solomonís stables, though not built by Solomon, and building an underground Mosque that would hold about 10,000 people. In the process of doing this, the wall, which is the southern wall of Jerusalem, has been protruding. It started with a few inches and now is a few feet. They say this wall is leaning so bad that if the Muslimís donít brace it, part of the wall could collapse and bring down part of the platform and could even affect the Mosque there, not the Dome of the Rock, but the Mosque. If such a collapse should take place the Israelis would be blamed for it. Anyway, there is a great controversy concerning the Temple Mount and changes there will cause a shift in times and seasons. Even the Pope has put forth plans to divide the Temple Mount into three parts, put up walls, and allow all three religions to have a section and a way to worship. Friday for the Muslimís, Saturday for the Jews and Sunday for the Christians.
Finally, the next thing that will happen. Acts 2:17-18 ďAnd it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:Ē Joel 2:28-29 ďAnd it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.ĒThe great move of God coming to the world comes with sons and daughters. God is going to rise up sons and daughters in these last days. Young people who are ready to do something for the Lord, who are not set in their ways and traditions and are not holding on to or concerned about materialistic things. There will be a shifting from emphasis on adult ministries to young people. These are the people upon whom God said in the last days He will pour out His spirit.
These are things that which are going to happen and in the process of happening, will prophetically cause a changing in times and seasons. When they occur, there will be major events happening both in America and overseas.
