John Hagee - Earth's Final Emperor
- Buy this sermon
Will you please stand for the reading of the Word of God. Turn with me to the Book of Revelation 19:19, as we continue this powerful and penetrating sermon series titled "The Coming Fourth Reich". Last Sunday, I taught you from the sacred scripture and from world history how the present crisis in Europe is paving the way for the globalists, also known as "The New World Order crowd," to form a global empire that is presently being called "Super States" to be led by earth's final emperor.
Today that is our theme. I'm going to share with you Dr. Bill Bennett's shocking article that he has released, this week, in the American media, called "The Next Assassinated President". And then cover the concept, "Can We See The Future," and show you in the Word of God and world history how that prophecy is true to the day and the hour, because God does not operate by a guess-work calendar. It is precision to the day and the hour: the shocking similarities between Adolf Hitler and the coming Fourth Reich leader.
Where is Jesus Christ in prophecy? We'll cover that. And then, why should you care? You should fasten your seatbelt and hang on, because this is about you. It's about your future. It's about your children's future and your grandchildren's future. It's about this nation. It's about our Christian believers in Europe who are listening right now. This is a studio audience of about 5,000 people. But there are people watching all over the world that are saying, "Please explain to us, in the Word of God, what's happening".
Here we go. Revelation 19:19, ready? "And I saw the beast and the kings of the earth and their armies gather together to make war against him that set upon the horse and against his army. And the beast was taken", the antichrist, "And the false prophet that brought miracles before him with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshiped his image".
These both were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone. A condensation of that is in the very near future, the trump of God is going to sound and the church triumphant will be gone. Everyone who is left is going to be given the choice of receiving the mark of the antichrist, who is coming, or having their heads cut off. If you take the mark, you lose your soul. And John says you're cast into a lake of burning fire and brimstone. I would never say that. I'm much too shy to say that. But there it is in black and white said by another John who was on the aIsle of Patmos a long time ago.
Father, let our hearts and our minds hear this word, and let us prepare with great confidence for the world tomorrow. And all of God's children said, praise the Lord.
You may be seated. Earth's final emperor is called, in the Bible, "The Antichrist," also called "The chief son of perdition". The translation is "He is Satan's chief son". Remember that when God wanted to save the world, he sent his son, Jesus Christ. When the church is gone, Satan is going to send his son, the son of perdition. The only other person called "Perdition" in the Bible was Judas Iscariot. This man is a monster beyond my capacity to describe him. He will come to power at a time of global chaos and confusion. Consider the chaos and confusion in Europe right now. England has voted to leave the European Union. Germany is demanding the formation of a super state.
Hitler's book "Mein Kampf" that was outlawed for so many years is now a best seller in Europe. The ghost of Hitler and its anti-semitism is sweeping across Europe like a tidal wave. European leaders are now scrambling for answers for the invasion of radical Islam that has stricken most European states. Consider the chaos in the Middle East. Russia and Iran have joined together militarily to control the Middle East. Iran is the number one terrorist state. Radical Islam, they want to kill everyone who disagrees with them. Iran has received, recently, 150 billion dollars that will be used to development long-range nuclear missiles, and doubtless, cause them to be nuclear equipped. They want a nuclear bomb to attack Israel. And they have plainly said they intend to wipe Israel off of the map.
Our administration, in recent days, sent a plane load of cash, 400 million dollars, according to the Wall Street Journal, that you can guarantee is now in the hands of Hamas and Hezbollah, who are terrorist organizations on Israel's border. Consider the chaos in America. The anarchy in the streets of this nation, it's organized. Many of those people are paid, professional revolutionaries, who want to see America destroyed. They are leading mobs, whose purpose is death and destruction. America's universities are filled with professors, who are poisoning the minds of our children, the next generation, with dreams of a socialist utopia where you get everything for free from the super rich. Let me define the super rich as anyone who has a job. Simply stated, they're going to tax you to pay for people, who refuse to work. And that number is growing exponentially.
Forty-eight percent of the people in America are, right now, on government assistance of some kind in a major way. Our policemen are being targeted and murdered in cold blood in the streets of America. May God bless the police force in every American city. You have our support and appreciation because you are the thin blue line between citizens of America and the barbarians in the street. Morally, we are Sodom and Gomorrah reborn. We're probably worse. Think about it. The murder of unborn children, 60 million of them: the selling of baby body parts by planned parenthood. I'm sure Sodom and Gomorrah never thought about that. We are a society of medical death camps called "Abortion mills" where drugs and debauchery are destroying the next generation. I was thinking the other day.
When I was a child, we heard of this monster, Al Capone, who was trying to sell alcoholic beverages without a tax. And he shot seven criminals in the back of a garage in Chicago. And they called it "The Saint Valentine's day massacre". How many of you remember that? Your older crowd. They made movies about it, wrote books about it. Oh, the moral horror and decadence that America had fallen so far. So what's the point? Recently, 100 people were shot, 24 of them killed in the city of Chicago in one week, and they didn't even make the national news. That's how far we've fallen. Wake up America. Wake up America. We are losing our country. The foundations of freedom are being destroyed. The good life that we hoped to extend to our children and grandchildren is systematically being destroyed because we have abandoned the principles of righteousness.
What we are proposing is not progress: it's moral insanity. And we need to stop and stop now. The political elitists are destroying America's middle class. One candidate wants to make America strong again. The other wants a career of chaos and corruption to continue. Because only in chaos and corruption can you rob from the American people their tax dollars and give it to terrorist organizations all over the earth to destroy the foundations of civilization. William j. Bennett is one of the America's most important, influential, and respected voices culturally, politically and educationally. I have met him. He is a brilliant man. He is a scholar. He has an earned Ph.D. He was serving the secretary of education under Ronald Reagan. He has one of the strongest Christian world views of any writer in modern times and especially America.
Bill Bennett has written an article, lately, that is entitled "The next assassinated president". Dr. Bennett bluntly states, concerning a trump presidency, "They will kill him before they allow him to be president". I continue to quote, "It's about the unholy dynamics between big government, big business, and big media. They all benefit by the billions of dollars from this partnership. And it's in all of their interests to protect one another". I continue to quote, "It's one for all and all for one. It's a filthy relationship that makes everyone filthy rich, everyone except the American people. We are getting ripped off. We are the patsies". I continue to quote, "But for once, the powerful socialist cobble and the corrupt crony capitalists are scared". I continue to quote, "The over-the-top reaction to trump by politicians of both parties, the media, and the biggest corporations of America has been so swift and insanely angry that it suggests that they are all threatened and frightened".
So why are they threatened? Why are they frightened? Because they're about to lose all of the power that they have in government. The next president of the United States will have the power to prosecute them for their crimes against the American people, and they're terrified. The only way we're going to take America back is when we, the people, get fired up enough to stand up and speak up, and vote out moral corruption. Stop sending liars to Washington. Lying is a spirit and it will not change with a title!
Can we see the future? Absolutely. Just how accurate is Bible prophecy? To the day, to the hour, and probably the second if we were sophisticated enough to follow it. People around the world are fascinated by the future. What in the world is going on? What in the world is happening to planet earth? Are we truly facing a nuclear holocaust in the Middle East? Let me tell you that if Iran is not stopped by force, not with airplanes packed with money, the answer is "Yes". With Russia's backing, Iran will attack Israel. And their objective will be a nuclear holocaust. When Hitler came to power, people said, well, he doesn't really mean to kill the Jews. But he did. He did exactly what he said he was going to do. Iran has been saying for 15 years that's their objective. And the American people had better get just, accustom to the idea that's their objective.
Are we facing a global economic crash? Will ISIS attack America with a severity that will make 9/11 pale by comparison? Can they hit New York with an Intercontinental Ballistic Missile, ICBM? Neighbor, if it has a nuclear warhead, it will make 9/11 look like a walk in the park. Can they shut off all the electricity to America with an Electromagnetic Pulse, EMP? Yes. A college senior with a degree in chemistry and two million bucks can make that happen. It's not complicated and it works.
With England and other nations leaving the European Union, how long will it be before there's a collapse there? Is the will of the New World Order already being forced upon the nations of the world by an unseen and uncontrollable hand? Can America survive another four years of socialism and absolute chaos? Why should you be interested in the future? I repeat, because it's where you're going to live the rest of your life, because that's where your children and grandchildren are going to live. We need to control the future, because we are the salt and light on this earth! We are the righteous! There are more of us than there are of them! Get out and go vote and vote the Bible!
So just how accurate is Bible prophecy? Let me give you this illustration of Nebuchadnezzar, Daniel 2, Daniel 7. Nebuchadnezzar was a universal ruler, who had awesome power. I wish I had the opportunity to describe his power, his global outreach, the magnificence of the world of which he lived, the hanging gardens, the rivers that were controlled just to water his flower gardens. The absolute magnificence makes our world like pale by comparison. Nebuchadnezzar had a dream, and he forgot the dream, living proof that one of the first things that happens when you go to work for a government is your mind goes away. And Nebuchadnezzar said to his warlocks, you guys get together and figure out what I dreamed and tell me what it means. And if you don't, I'm going to kill all of you. I'm going to kill your wives and your children and burn your houses down. He said actually, I'm going to turn your house to a dung heap.
That's nasty and you don't like to say it, but that's what he promised. Daniel heard about it and said, hey, give us a chance. Shadrach, Meshach and i, we'll have a little prayer meeting, and we'll ask God to reveal it to us. They did and God gave Daniel the dream and gave him the interpretation. Now get that: gave him the dream that Nebuchadnezzar forgot and gave him the interpretation to the dream. And I'm going give it to you in five minutes. Hang on. Nebuchadnezzar had this dream of this image. Daniel received this dream. And he says in Daniel 2: "You", king Nebuchadnezzar, "Are the head of gold". So there's no doubt about which kingdom we're talking about. Because God gave it to Daniel, and Daniel has it in your Bible.
Then he said: and there will rise a kingdom after you inferior to you, but they will rule your kingdom. Inferior, gold is more valuable than silver. Silver is more valuable than brass. Brass is more valuable than iron. But iron is stronger than any of these metals. This represents the Medo-Persian empire, one arm over the other because the Medes were stronger than the Persians. The next kingdom was the kingdom of brass, the Grecian Empire under Alexander the Great. The last empire was the Roman Empire. It lasted a thousand years. It fell. And the Bible makes it clear that the Roman Empire is going to be reborn. And it's going to be reborn and it's going to have ten leaders: hence, the ten crowns.
You've heard me say, "The Government of Ten, the G-10". This is the antichrist, is going to rule. Daniel then says in the 2nd chapter long about verse 34. He said: and I saw a rock, a stone cut without hands. That stone was Jesus Christ, the cornerstone precious and elect in Zion. And that stone, which is right here, hits this image and crushes it. Actually the actual translation means "Grinds it to face powder". Ladies, when you hit that powder puff on your cheek and it goes "Poof," that's the picture I want you to get. This big, bad world government, when God turns Jesus Christ loose, he is going to crush it and scatter it to the four winds.
Now just to make sure that everyone got the story, God tells the story the second time in Daniel 7, this time using animals. He starts with this lion. This is the symbol of the Babylonian empire then and now. You read in the Bible, Daniel says that I saw the wings plucked from the lion. Why? Because Nebuchadnezzar looked out over this vast kingdom and said, look what a great thing I have done. God resists the proud. God took his mind from him. And he was led to the pasture to eat grass with cows for seven years. Welcome to God's humility program for executives who are stuck on themselves. Oh, I love that. I wish that program existed in Washington. There's not enough grass to feed them all. The second animal was a bear. The bear is rolled up on one side with three ribs in his mouth. "Three ribs in his mouth" because the Babylonian empire and the Medes and the Persians have all come together.
On one side, because the Medes are stronger than the Persians, one arm over the other, symbolizing the same thing. When this empire comes to a close, this empire under Alexander the Great with four wings, represents the four generals of Alexander's empire. While this Medo-Persian empire sent two million men to war at one time, Alexander the Great was the first blitzkrieg. He hit you so fast: he had you under attack and conquered before you knew the attack had happened. The four generals were the ones who inherited his empire, because at the age of 33, Alexander the Great, sitting under a tree, died with SyPhilis, crying because there were no other worlds to conquer. The then-known world were divided under the leadership of these four generals, representing the four horns on this ram.
And out of the horn came the little horn in Daniel 8:8 through 12. The little horn is known in scripture as the antichrist, Daniel 7:7 and 8. And here is the picture of the antichrist and the ten horns that God gave Daniel, matching the ten toes of this feet. Now give me the first picture that we started out with today. Think of what you saw on the ground. You saw a lion. You saw a bear, bear's paws here. You saw a leopard of Alexander the Great. You saw ten heads. But this is the last position of the New World Order Satanic kingdom run by Satan's son, the antichrist. He will have four crowns and there will be six others, who will have a crown. It's the seven heads with the ten horns. How many of you just understand what I just got through saying? Good. A picture is worth 10,000 words. That's the story.
Now here's the point, I said all that to say this: Daniel was in the Old Testament. John was last thing in the New Testament. They never had access to each other. They didn't fax each other. They didn't compare revelations with each other. And yet, these two Jewish men, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, wrote down exactly the same thing hundreds of years apart in detail that is stunning and amazing. If you read the book of Daniel, it actually has the battle plans that Alexander the Great used in attacking his enemy.
How did a Jewish captive know that there would be four kingdoms? How did he know which one would follow which? How could he know the different military tactics that one would use over the other? Only by the divine revelation of God. And everything that Daniel spoke literally came to pass. He had no idea how long the Roman Empire would last, because it died. And the Bible says: it was, and it is not, and yet it will be again. It means that the Roman Empire is going to be reborn. Right now in Europe, they're talking about the rebirth of the Roman Empire. How correct is the Bible? It's a long way ahead of the evening news, and it's deadly accurate. Give the Lord praise in the house.
This is, in my mind, the most profound explanation of the accuracy of Bible prophecy in the Bible. The Persian king Artaxerxes, issued a decree allowing the Jewish people in captivity to go back to Israel to rebuild Jerusalem, the walls of Jerusalem under Nehemiah. This is Nehemiah 2. How many of you've ever read that story? Now, Daniel was praying in Daniel 9:24 through 27. And God sent Gabriel, the Archangel to Daniel to tell him the exact day Jesus Christ was going to ride into Jerusalem. I shouldn't get down this rabbit trail, but I can't resist. You read that chapter. Daniel gets down to pray.
Now Hebrew scholars have been timed in how long it takes them to pray that prayer, three minutes max. And Gabriel arrives at Daniel's side to give him heaven's answer, because he, Daniel, wants to know what God is sending him. And Gabriel says: we heard you praying and we heard your petition in heaven. And I am come to give you the answer (three minutes). Heaven is beyond the north star. The north star is 180,000 light years away with light traveling at 186,000 miles a second. My friends, that's fast. That makes 120 miles an hour on the freeway a snail starter. I love the idea that in our supernatural body, we'll be able to transverse the universe as quickly as I can step from one side of the platform to the other. Why? Because the Bible says: when you call, I have already answered.
Let me get back here. So Daniel is praying in the 9th chapter, 24th through the 27th verse, to tell Daniel the exact day Jesus Christ would ride into Jerusalem on the fold of an ass. In Daniel 9:25, let me turn there and read it, and exigent it as we go. It says: no, therefore, Daniel, and understand that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and rebuild Jerusalem, that's talking about Artaxerxes' decree. To restore and rebuild Jerusalem until the Messiah, the prince shall be seven weeks and three score in two weeks.
Now this confuses everybody that really hasn't studied the Bible well. A week in the Bible is seven years. It's not seven days: it's seven years. The decree was from Artaxerxes, Nehemiah 2:1 through 8. So he says it will be for seven weeks. Seven weeks, if seven years, is seven times seven is forty-nine. So he's saying the first number is 49 years. In 49 years, it was the end of the Old Testament. Jerusalem had been rebuilt and it was 397 B.C.
The second period that is given is, and three score in two weeks. That's 62 weeks. Sixty-two times seven is 434 years, which marked the triumphant entry of Jesus Christ into the City of Jerusalem. Put that together from the day that Artaxerxes gave the command for Jerusalem to be rebuilt exactly 483 years later. And I'll put it to the days, 173,880 days later, to the day and the hour, Jesus road that donkey into Jerusalem as the Messiah of all the earth. Now how do you know that? Because Jesus acknowledged that. Jesus knew the significance of the prophecy when he said to the people, Luke 19:42: "If you had known in this day", say that with me: in this day. "The things that make for peace, because you did not recognize the time of your visitation". Jesus knew exactly what was taking place. He knew the significance of this. And it could be timed exactly from the date of Artaxerxes' revelation.
Let's go now to the earth's final emperor, the antichrist, and look at some of the shocking similarities that he has between himself and Adolf Hitler. Hitler was obsessed by the occult. He sought out occultic leaders to perform acts of witchcraft to give him personal guidance. The antichrist is going to be the earth's final dictator, according to Daniel 8:23, said he's a king of fierce countenance, who understands dark sentences. Say, dark sentences. Dark sentences. "Dark" as in a spiritual darkness. Satan is the prince of darkness. And he is going to give supernatural, demonic revelation to the antichrist. That's why the Bible says nothing can be hidden from him. The antichrist is his son, the son of perdition.
I'm making this statement and you just watch it. America and Europe, right now, are becoming obsessed with the occult. Even the Catholic church has become so concerned about exorcisms that they have released everyone in their church to approach this issue, because it is sweeping the world. Hitler made peace treaties that he never intended to honor. He made one with Russia and broke it. He made one with England, Neville chamberlain, and broke it. Chamberlain went back to England saying, we've got peace in our times. He'd no more gotten back than the war started. The antichrist is going to do exactly the same thing. The Bible says: he will destroy wondrously with peace. People will say the Bible says: peace, peace, and then what? And then come a sudden what? Destruction.
Hudna, how many of you know what that word means, H-U-D-N-A? How many of you don't know what it means? In the Islamic faith, if the antichrist is Islamic, there is hudna. Hudna means you have God's permission and blessing to lie if it advances your cause. Remember we signed all those treaties with Iran and they were going to do all these wonderful things? They've broken every blessed one of them. Hitler assassinated several major leaders in his inner circle to consolidate his power. The antichrist will kill three major leaders in his gang of ten to consolidate his power. Hitler presented himself as Germany's Messiah. "Sieg Heil" was a salute of worship. Nazism was not merely like a religion: it was a religion.
In the book "The Twisted Cross," the author says, "The propaganda chief, Joseph Goebbels, considered Adolf Hitler to be Jesus Christ incarnated". And the German people bought it. Pastor Eric Bonhoeffer was put in prison for saying this, "Germany cannot serve two Gods. Germany must choose between the living God of heaven or Hitler". Germany made the wrong choice. My question to you and to those of you watching: is America and Europe making the wrong choice? When God's word says x and America does y, it's sin. It's not progress. Righteousness exalts a nation but sin is a reproach to any people. This moral madness we have going on in this country is not progress. It is moral insanity.
Bonhoeffer said, "To see evil and not call it evil is evil. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act. God will not hold us guiltless". America's number one problem is not happening in Europe. It's not happening with a coming military power. America's number one problem is God. Why? Because he always judges sin. And the cup of iniquity in America is running over with human blood and corruption that God must correct or apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah. That's a fact. I say, let the church of Jesus Christ speak out with such authority over sin, over debauchery, over immorality, over evil, without apology, without fear, without back peddling, without rephrasing what I said. Wrong is still wrong!
Where is Jesus Christ in prophecy? I'll say this and close. Revelation 19:10 says: the essence of prophecy is to give a clear witness for Jesus. The very first prophecy in the Bible is Genesis 3:15. It says: the seed of the woman will crush the serpent's head. The seed of the woman was Jesus Christ and he crushed Satan's head. I love those words. Back to the feet, the stone cut without hand, crushed.
We're not just going to win a small victory over the powers and principalities of darkness. When our side shows up and our king gets in control, we are going to crush them to face powder. Jesus is called "Shiloh," the one to whom it belongs. This is my father's world. It belongs to him and to his son Jesus Christ. He is called "The Passover lamb" in Exodus 12. He is the star from Jacob in numbers 24. He is the great high priest of Psalm 110. He is the prophet of Deuteronomy 18. He is the king of 2 Samuel 7. He is the wonderful counselor, the mighty God, the Everlasting Father and the Prince of Peace in Isaiah 9. He is a righteous judge in Isaiah 32. He is the servant of the Lord in Isaiah 53. He is a man of sorrows, carrying your sorrows and your burdens away in Isaiah 53. He is the smiting stone.
There he is again in Daniel 2. He is the Son of Man in Daniel 7. He is the anointed and holy one in Daniel 9. He is the son who will rule in Psalm 2. He is the shepherd in Psalms 23. He is the Lord of the temple in Malachi 3. He is the resurrection and the life of John 11. He is the glorified, risen Savior in revelation 1. He is the Lord of the church. He is the Lamb of God of revelation 5. He is the judge of all the nations in revelation 6. He is the miracle-born child of Israel in revelation 12. He is the coming King of kings and Lord of lords in revelation 19. He is the Lord of heaven and earth. And of his kingdom, there shall be no end! Give him praise and glory in the house of God! The king is coming! Hallelujah to the Lamb of God! Give the Lord a shout of praise in the house!
This and closing. To those of you that are watching by television across America and in Europe, and those of you who are in this audience, the text of the morning said the options are these: to serve Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, or to bow before the antichrist to receive his mark. And when you receive his mark, you lose your soul. I didn't say that: God said that. You're watching by television and you've never received Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, you can do so right where you sit when we pray this next prayer. Those of you that are in this audience, there has never been a definite time where you prayed the sinner's prayer, there has never been a specific moment in your life when you received the Son of God as the prince of your life.
If you have not prayed the sinner's prayer and have not receive Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, I want you to raise your hand right now, because I want to pray it with you. Slip your hand up. God bless you. God bless you. God bless you. God bless you. God bless you. Those of you watching by television, pray this prayer. congregation, pray it with us.
Heavenly Father, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I ask you to forgive me of all of my sin. Cleanse me from all unrighteousness. And may the grace and peace of God rule my heart and mind. From this day forward, I will be a servant of the Lord Jesus. He will be my king. He will be my Lord, and I will obey him. I will live by the dictates of the Word of God. And I will walk the paths of righteousness, in Jesus' name. And now because of the blood of Jesus Christ, my sins are forgiven. My name has been written down in the lamb's book of life. I am a believer. I am saved. Heaven is my home. Amen.
Give the Lord a shout of praise in the house of God. Hallelujah. Hallelujah. Hallelujah. Amen. Lift your hands for the blessing.
And now may the Lord bless you and may the Lord keep you. And may the Lord make his face to shine upon you. And may the Lord be gracious unto you and give you his peace. May you walk today in the confidence that you are a child of God. Your yesterdays have been forgiven and your tomorrows have all been taken care of by the grace of a loving father who has all power in heaven and in earth. Be assured that when you call on his name, he will answer even before you finish your prayer, because he's just that close. Nothing is impossible to you. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad. The king is coming. The king is coming. Heaven is just a heartbeat away. In Jesus' name, rejoice and be exceedingly glad. And all of God's children said, praise the Lord.
