Summary: The end-times is not about the power of Satan or the anti-Christ, but about God and His power and authority. Only God knows how things will work out.
God’s End Time Army
Joel 2:11 - The LORD gives voice before His army, For His camp is very great; For strong is the One who executes His word. For the day of the LORD is great and very terrible; Who can endure it? The end-times is not about the power of Satan or the anti-Christ, but about God and His power and authority. Only God knows how things will work out.
1. Signs of the end
Earthquakes, wars and rumors of wars, incurable diseases, financial troubles, famine, lawlessness, etc.
Matthew 26 – “These are the beginning of sorrows”
2. The political landscape
One world government, cashless society, one world religion, one world leader (antichrist), etc.
3. The army of the Lord
Daniel 12:4 - "But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase."
a. The coming revival
Acts 2:17 - And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, that I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh…
b. True apostles
Ephesians. 4: 11-12 - And He himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ.
The end-time apostles will work with the other members of the five-fold ministry to equip the body of Christ and organize it into a powerful fighting force.
c. A holy war
Matthew 11:12 - And from the days of John the Baptist until now the Kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force.
Joel 2 - (extracts) - A fire devours before them, and behind them a flame burns; the land is like the Garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; surely nothing shall escape them. The earth quakes before them, the heavens tremble; the sun and moon grow dark, and the stars diminish their brightness. The Lord gives voice before His army, for His camp is very great; for strong is the One who executes His word. For the day of the Lord is great and very terrible; who can endure it?
God is going to use the following people in the last days:
* God is going to use men
* God is going to use women
* God is going to use young people and even children
* God is going to use old people
* God is going to use people that have been racially marginalized
* God is going to use those who have been rejected by society
Prepare for the battle
2 Corinthians 6:17 - Therefore "Come out from among them and be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean and I will receive you."

Allow God to show you the future.
