This Generation, ISIS and the Restrainer
Series Alas, Babylon
This series of sermons on Bible prophecy builds on our conclusion that America IS the last days political and commercial Babylon of Revelation 18, the daughter of religious Babylon seen in Revelation 17, which is papal Rome. As such, the global American-led "New World Order" empire that has been built over the last several decades is in fact the Revived Roman Empire long expected by prophecy scholars.
This message, Part 3 of the series, answers two related but controversial subjects. First we answer the meaning of Christ's statement in Matt. 24:34, that "this generation" shall not pass until all these things be fulfilled. Preterists say this verse shows that Christ's prophecy had to be completely fulfilled in 70 AD when Rome destroyed Jerusalem; which is IMPOSSIBLE, as shown in Luke's account of the Olivet discourse, which shows clearly that the particular "this generation" in view was to be a FUTURE generation, living at the close of the church age, long after the dispersion of the Jews in AD 70, and AFTER Jerusalem is "trodden of the gentiles until the times of the gentiles be fulfilled" (Luke 21:24-32).
We next explain why the "restrainer" of 2 Thessalonians 2:6-7 is NOT the Holy Spirit as proposed by the heretic C.I. Scofield, but is in fact the person of the antichrist, whose coming must precede Christ's 2nd Advent, and who will be "taken out of the way" at Christ's coming.
Finally in this message we address ISIS, the latest public enemy of the New World Order, which was reportedly created, funded and equipped by American and British agents for the purpose of bringing about a "regime change" in Syria, as was accomplished in Irag, Egypt and Libya.
