REVELATION, APOCALYPSE, ISRAEL, IRAN, RUSSIA,
AMERICA, EUROPE AND VISION OF THE FUTURE
By Paul McGuire
The last book of the Bible is the Book of
Revelation or Apocalypse. The word
Apocalypse comes from the word apokaplypsis which
means the unveiling or disclosing of reality that
previously has not been received. In the
Book of Revelation God gives us a picture of what is about
to happen in the near future. When the
church is listening to the Holy Spirit, the church will
faithfully preach and teach from this book so that people
will be prepared and know what to do in the last days.
Unfortunately, many churches around the world are
being disobedient to the Lord and deliberately not
teaching or preaching from Revelation. These
churches are listening to the spirit of Babylon and not
the Holy Spirit. To one degree or another
they are being swept into the great apostasy or spiritual
deception that the Apostle Paul warned would happen in the

At the present moment, the world is in the most
dangerous position it has ever been in since after the
Flood of Noah. As predicted by the ancient
prophets nations like Russia, Iran, Israel, Europe along
with nations like the young lions of Tarshish are directly
involved in an invasion of Israel or appear to be
monitoring it from afar. In the Book of
Ezekiel there is a reference to "the young lions of
Tarshish" looking on while there is an invasion of Israel
by Gog and Magog. This invasion is called
the War of Gog and Magog or Ezekiel 38. In
Ezekiel 38 Russia, Iran and alliance of other Middle
Eastern nations invade Israel.
Tarshish was a
seaport town along the Atlantic Ocean near Cardiz, Spain.
The peoples who settled Tarshish traveled to
England and Ireland by boat. Many scholars
believe that these settlers than traveled from England to
the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
All of these nations were birthed from England.
These are the nations which appear to observe the conflict
and perhaps even protest it, but do not appear to be in
it. The World War III build-up that is going
on with the U.S., Europe, Russia, China, Iran, Islamic
nations and other regions of the world may not be Ezekiel
38 or Armageddon. But, it is
interesting to note how many of the nations listed
in Ezekiel 38 are involved.
God is speaking to His people through His Word and
the Holy Spirit giving us a vision of the future and an
assignment for the last days.
of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show His
servants-things which must shortly take place. And He sent
and signified it by His angel to His servant John,
who bore witness to the word of God, and to the testimony
of Jesus Christ, to all things that he saw. Blessed is
he who reads and those who hear the words of this
prophecy, and keep those things which are written in it;
for the time is near.
John, to the seven churches which are in Asia:
Grace to you and peace from Him who is and who was and who
is to come, and from the seven Spirits who are before His
throne, and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the
firstborn from the dead, and the ruler over the kings of
To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own
blood, and has made us kings and priests to His God and
Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and
Behold, He is coming with clouds,
and every eye will see Him, even they who pierced Him. And
all the tribes of the earth will mourn because of Him.
Even so, Amen.
"I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the
End,"says the Lord, "who is and who was and who is to
come, the Almighty."
God is currently revealing to His servants, "things
which must shortly take place." This is the
only book of the Bible where God promises a blessing if
you read the prophecy in it. People, who are
servants of God and not mere followers, receive
supernatural revelation based on God's Word about what is
happening in the earth right now. God is giving these
people provision, plans, assignment and guidance.
Those people who
understand the purpose of prophecy know the prophetic
implications of why the United States has sent yet another
warship to the Middle East, meaning that three major
aircraft carriers allied with numerous guided-missile
destroyer ships are now either already located or are on
their way to the troubled region
A third Nimitz-class supercarrier, the USS
Abraham Lincoln, has now been sent to join the U.S.
fifth fleet in the Middle East. Russia and
Iran are also sending naval vessels into the area. The Iranian captured U.S. drone
exposes covert US-Iran conflict. Many
military experts believe it was the Russians or
Chinese that downedthe drone.
God supernaturally show His servants the future
in the world, America and the nation you live in.
Not so you can be passive spectators, but so you
can fulfill the Great Commission and pray at a high
level of multidimensional spiritual warfare. If
you are walking in the power of the Holy Spirit, you
know what soon faces America and this world. The
challenge for each of us personally is, "Are we in synch
with what the Lord is doing?"
