By Roger Foster of The Billy Graham Bible Institute and Fellowship Enterprise:

Revelation, the last book of the Bible, is the only New Testament book specifically devoted to prophecy. It is literally "the revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show His servants-things which must shortly take place" (Revelation 1:1).

The 18th chapter describes a dominant system of international trade supported by corrupt political and religious hegemonies whose "sins have reached to heaven" (verse 5). But the Bible shows that the return of Jesus Christ will signal this system's collapse and destruction and more specifically, the crime on the streets and terrorist attacks. Recent reports from CNN and other major broadcasting networks indicated that the Al-Qaeda network is using the MS-13 gangs, Latin King gangs and the 18th Street Mexican Mafia gangs to disrupt the moral fabric of our society. The police reports, local and abroad will certainly prove that point.

This system will exercise, for a short time, such control over the lives of the earth's inhabitants that "no one may buy or sell" without its permission (Revelation 13:17). This economic system will stringently regulate commerce.

In our society, which greatly values individual freedom, it seems almost absurd to predict such a drastic global change in economic outlook and practice. What could possibly induce the citizens of civilized nations to accept such intrusive controls over their right to buy and sell as they please? The restrictions will cause the citizens to revolt against the government and gangs will go out and loot and riot and anarchy will set in because of traditional law standards deteriorating.

On a regional level this scenario has already been played out once in our century. The collapse of the world's free economies, trade wars and economic turmoil of the Great Depression of the 1930s helped catapult Adolf Hitler to power. Hitler's solutions restored Germany to power and made him a hero among most of his own people until his military defeat in 1945.

People who were adults during the Great Depression are rapidly passing from the scene. Their accounts of plummeting wages, loss of homes and jobs and pervasive hunger seem long ago and far away. Today few people in the industrialized world have any concept of what happens when deflation-a drop in prices and wages-sets in.

Our new Commander-In-Chief is unique because he has good charismatic christian intellectual powers and he can make the world good and christian. You need to come to Montgomery County, Maryland and engage in our worship and praise of our new president as our new Muslim God and American Prophet. That will improve the economy and get rid of crime and terrorism too. It has been proven true. The christian way is the only way. We are preparing for the Dec. 21,2012 End Of The World and if you worship and praise our new president, you will enter into his personal Heaven with us. That is the good news!
