'Things Are Not Falling Apart - They Are Falling Into Place', Hal Lindsey: Prophetic Year In Review

The headline for these articles above is a perfect quote from the first article below. From all outward appearances, the world is falling into chaos, but the reality is, things are falling into place very specifically according to biblical prophecy:

Prophecy News: Things Are Falling Into Place Prophetically

Things are not falling apart -- they are falling into place. If Jesus chastised the Pharisees for not knowing the signs of His first coming, why would we not be expected to be aware of today's apocalyptic signs? Here are some of the top prophetic developments of 2015.

1)    Israel's worsening isolation. (Zechariah 12:3) The Left in America under Barack Obama abandoned her some years ago. With the defeat of Canada's Stephen Harper, Israel was left only with some evangelical Christians spread around the world. She has no superpower backing.

2)   The "days of Noah" are back. (Matthew 24:37)  Everyone is doing what is right in their own eyes. (Judges 17:6) Lawlessness is the order of the day. Evil is glorified. The White House was adorned with the colors of the homosexual rainbow and Hillary Clinton has a campaign ad with homosexuals engaged in debauchery as she celebrates their actions.  

3)   The disillusionment with today's politician is setting the stage for a "man with a plan" who will not be a politician but who will have the answer to all the world's problems. We don't know his name. We know his title is Antichrist. He may be the only one who can stabilize the ISIS crisis being planned for a naive Western world.

4)   The rise of strong delusion. (II Thessalonians 2:10-12). Simply put, God sends a strong delusion to those who choose not to believe the gospel of Jesus Christ. Those who take delight in mocking and rejecting Him, He will condemn, confuse their thinking, and cause them to believe fables. And they do!  Islam is good and peaceful; guns are evil; climate change is more dangerous than jihadists; Israel is the bad guy and the Palestinians are the new heroes in the church today; ISIS isn't Islam; Muslim refugees are peaceful and will help the Western world. This is an "Alice-in-Wonderland" world. Christians don't fit. The Mad Hatter rules.

5)   The further decline of America. She is not in the Bible in the end-times. Russia and Iran are the primary players in the Mideast now. America's influence for good is vanishing under Barack Obama. America will blend into global government.  
6)    America is being given over to paganism. A few months ago the Hindu goddess Kali appeared on the Empire State Building in New York City. Twenty years ago this was unthinkable. It is now cool.  

7)   Israel is being prepared for the Antichrist. She is surrounded by enemies. She has Hezbollah, ISIS, Russia and Syria to the north and East and Hamas to the south in Gaza. Iran boasts daily that she will dump nukes on Israel. At some point she will cave to these threats and call on the Antichrist to make a peace treaty -- particularly in light of the loss of American support.

8)   Gog is now on the move.  If Gog is Russia, Vladimir Putin has re-built her from the days when Ronald Reagan reined her in. Russia is advancing in many places.  All the Gog-Magog nations are aligning and are in the news: Iran, Russia, Turkey, Libya, and more. Prominent Bible-players are moving around as though they were on a chess board.
See Ezekiel 38-39.

9)    Israel has been bombing the suburbs of Damascus taking out concealed weapons. The Bible foretells a time when Damascus will become a ruinous heap. (Isaiah 35:1)

10)   Christians are mocked as never before and Jews are fleeing to Israel at a pace not seen since post WW2.  (Matthew 10:22) Only Islam is glorified, honored, and protected. In the Iraq/Syria region, a Christian is slaughtered every 5 minutes, yet few show any concern. Christianity is being erased from the region of its birth.  All of this intensified in 2015.  

11)  The technology giants want to suppress the truth and marginalize Christians.  From YouTube, to Google, to Facebook, to Twitter, and more, the gospel message is censored and evil is glorified. They are preparing the way for "Mark of the Beast" technology. This was on overdrive in 2015. This ministry came under the gun and was censored more than once. Stories reveal that Windows 10 actually spies on emails, credit cards, and more.

12)   There was a cry for a global religion from Pope Francis to the Parliament of World Religions in Utah in late 2015. If the world is ever to be one, religions also must be united.  Pope Francis revealed himself to be an apocalyptic figure in 2015. We cannot "pin the tail of the False Prophet" on him quite yet, but even conservative Catholics are troubled by this Jesuit Pope. In fact, this Pope represents Marxism, environmentalism, the new world order, global government, sustainable development, the Jesuit agenda, unity of faiths, a global constitution, a global court, and a departure from Catholic traditions.  He is surely a harbinger of a global religion.

13)   Globalism went on overdrive thanks to Barack Obama, the United Nations, Pope Francis, and a consortium of worldwide Leftists.  John Lennon, who "imagined" all of this decades ago, would be proud!

14)   The push to make cash illegal intensified in 2015. The move to a cashless society won't happen overnight.  Instead, it is being implemented very slowly and systematically in a series of incremental steps.  All over the planet, governments are starting to place restrictions on the use of cash for security reasons.  

15)   Israel's Temple Mount has been a focal point for turmoil this year.  With stage-setting for fulfillment of Bible prophecy during this Church Age winding up, it should be of no surprise that there has been tension on Mount Moriah. That may be the most contested 35 acres on the planet.

16)   This was the year Bible prophecy was mocked and attacked more than ever! Believers in our "blessed hope" were called "End-time Eddies and Esthers." While this has always existed, now more and more prominent teachers are telling us not to waste our time on doom and gloom.  

17)    Liberal, Godless Europe imploded. Leaders like Germany's Angela Merkel lost their minds, put their people at huge risk as terrorists took advantage of the "refugee" situation, and have made Europe a time bomb. The Antichrist will take advantage of this as well.

18)   This was the year evangelicals began accepting the gay agenda and some asserted that Allah and Jehovah are the same. The voices from the religious Left encouraged this.  The great end-time falling away has much of the church going over a cliff with results that cannot be rectified.  Finding a solid church became a believer's biggest challenge in 2015.

Please join me this week for Part One of "2015: Prophetic Year in Review." 

From the perspective of Bible prophecy, 2015 may be remembered as the year Satan's key project began to rise. 

Since at least the time of Nimrod, Satan has been laying the groundwork for a one-world government, with his man in charge. 

Through the millennia since, he's had successes and setbacks. But in 2015, the foundation became complete enough for him to begin building the actual edifice. The past year seemed to bring us to the critical time when Satan's one-world order got on final track. 

2015 showed us that the Antichrist may not establish his power through a dramatic military coup or the takeover of a particular national government. Instead, it may well come through his control of a global, trans- and supra-national governing body. 

And we witnessed in 2015 the breathtaking birth of those bodies that may control the world one day. 

Surprisingly, a major culprit may be the Republican Congress that handed the President sweeping new powers to negotiate trade deals. 

On October 5, 2015, the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) was formed by 12 Pacific Rim nations. It will be an unbelievably powerful governing regime that can change the rules however it wishes and there is nothing the participants can do about it. 

Though supposedly formed to regulate and facilitate trade between the 12 nations, the TPP Commission will be granted power and authority that is almost unbelievable. Here are just a few of the things that the TPP will have dictatorial power over: immigration, wealth redistribution, education, human rights, gay rights, same-sex marriage, gun control, health care, women's reproductive rights, abortion, sustainable development, pollution, wildlife and wetlands, and the authority to give foreign nations complete access to American markets. It will be able to punish nations with multi-billion dollar fines and punish individuals who organize boycotts against products. It is also going to make it illegal to mark a product as "Made in the USA." 

And its companion treaty is The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership. 

Very little about trade, but a lot about global control. 

But in 2015, TPP was not the worst deal of the year. In fact, it wasn't even second worst. That distinction falls to the Iran nuclear deal. 

The worst international agreement of 2015 was approved unanimously by every member of the United Nations General Assembly. It is a so-called "climate" agreement known as Agenda 2030. 

Supposedly created to deal with climate issues, the agreement includes items like plans to "reduce... violence and death rates." And, "provide justice for all." And "provide legal identity for all including birth registration." 

That seems like a lot of stuff that has little to do with the climate! This pact will lead to the most extreme totalitarian regime ever conceived and, eventually, to the "Mark of the Beast." 

Very little about the climate, but a lot about global control. 

In 2015, Pope Francis jumped wholeheartedly on the climate change bandwagon. Throughout the year, he chastised individual nations that place their national interests above the common global good and stand in the way of international progress toward climate control. He thinks that's a bad thing. And he called for governments to cede their authority to a higher agency -- and he wasn't talking about Almighty God, either. 

The Pope has been hoodwinked by the secular agenda of those working toward a one-world government. He seems not to understand that Agenda 2030 is not about the climate. It never was. It is about the politics of the New World Order. 

In 2015, European leaders welcomed massive numbers of Muslims into their countries. It has now accelerated from immigration to invasion. 

And while the United States has been fairly focused on ISIS, al-Qaeda and the Taliban have been re-establishing themselves in Afghanistan. During the 2012 campaign, President Obama disingenuously bragged that "al-Qaeda is on the run." But at the moment, al-Qaeda is preparing to run Afghanistan. 

In 2015, ISIS proved that its tentacles now reach into much of the world, including the United States. I guess they are no longer President Obama's "J.V. team." 

In America, 2015 saw acceleration of the brutal new despotism known as Political Correctness. 

"Tolerance" used to mean "forbearance," or "to allow," or "to agree to disagree," or even, "to endure what you don't like." No longer. 

American schools today teach our children that "tolerance" means "full endorsement" and that anything less than "full endorsement" means "intolerance." 

It started with the issue of homosexuality. Children are being taught that if you don't endorse and promote homosexuality, then you must be an intolerant bigot. 

That same absurd thinking has now spread to the subject of Islam. So, to teach our schoolchildren tolerance of Islam, they are taught to embrace Islam. 

Ironically, the Muslim faith is the most "intolerant" of all major religions. 

And just before Christmas of 2015, Disney released the seventh Star Wars movie: "Star Wars: The Force Awakens." Like the original "Star Wars" in 1977, they are both extremely "spiritual" movies. They feature a spirituality that loosely resembles Christian faith. It's not real Christianity, but it is vaguely spiritually comforting. 

Revelation predicts the coming of a world religion. I'm not saying that it will be based on "Star Wars," but the mythology of "The Force" is one of many elements laying the groundwork for that coming religion. 

People are hungry for meaning. They're spiritually destitute. They don't know it, but they feel it. They are searching for something to fill the void. 

In the movie, one of the characters tells another that "The Force is calling to you. Just let it in." That's scary because "The Force" of "Star Wars" is not the one true God. And if you just "let it in," you will be in for a world of hurt. 

But in these last days, people are desperate to find something to fill the God-shaped void in their lives. The coming false religion will flood that void for many of them.
