Prescient Statement on Antichrist in 1972 Book?
Topic: Armageddon
I have been conducting a Bible study series on the Book of Revelation and End-Time prophecy.  One of the resources I have been using is a 1972 book by Catherine Graham entitled, Revelation Simplified:  Verse by Verse.  Sister Graham had been teaching Revelation in the South Texas District and elsewhere for 30 years, and self-published her materials by popular request.  The book contains a forward by Dr. Blake Farmer, then president of Southwestern Assemblies of God College.

I was consulting her book on the First Seal of Rev. 6:1-2, the conquering king on a white horse.  It is generally agreed that this king is the Antichrist, not to be at all confused with Christ coming on a white horse in chapter 19.

I was taken aback when I read the following statement, referring also to Daniel 11:24:

"The crown was given to him.  He did not earn it; neither is he worthy of it.  He will go forth and will not spare anything, to do as he desires, and to get the desired results he is working toward” (p. 64).

Sound familiar?  Now Graham gives these passages an emphasis that would not have immediately come to my mind prior to recent events.  I have to wonder whether her interpretation will prove to be prophetic.

Russian, Georgian Armies May Clash
Topic: Armageddon
As the Geogian Army attempts to reestablish control of its South Ossetia province, Russia is sending in tanks.

Read about it:

Call me a conspiracy theorist, but ever since the apparent breakup of the Soviet Union in 1989, I have suspected the whole thing to be a ploy, a long-term strategy to prompt the US and Europe to disarm.  Recall the farce-like atmosphere in which Russian tanks were driving around aimlessly, without any clear orders, culminating with Boris Yeltsin climbing up on a tank to give an "impromtu" speech (before the cameras).  My intuition has always been that the old Soviet Union will some day coalesce once again, almost overnight, to threaten world domination.

This clash, along with Vladimir Putin's behind-the-scenes power-mongering and popular youth movement (eerily similar to the Hitler Youth) might well contribute to that eventuality.

Remember that you heard it here first.
