schooldad3, mike and others, I agree that there is a rise in Islam and not a rise in Rome, but I don't think there will be a rise in Rome per se. Imo, it's not Italy, or Rome, but the Vatican and Catholicism. And it isn't rising, it's already there. Catholicism is the richest and most powerful religion in the world already. It could be argued that it is the Harlot riding the Beast. Or it's a combo, as many have said, of this new push for chrislam by the Vatican itself. Either way the US presence is declining and Islam's boldness will increase. I look forward to the next video. Thanks for sharing.
Often, scripture is dual prophecy. So while schooldad3 is right on target, evidenced by the events we are witnessing, there also remains the secondary aspect of the prophecies that tend to relate to Rome. Like, Rev. 13:18 that has an application to Francis; he is the 266th pope according to that church and his government is also the 266th. The 666 reference in that verse minus the 266 of Francis and his government leaves 400 that is representative of the Savior and his church. That is, in the beginning of the church age the number associated with the church was 400. And, added to that is the 266 of Francis and his government ending with the 666 as stipulated in Verse 13:18.
schooldad3 , do you see another application of Verse 13:18 to the Islamic movement. You may have already shared that and I can not remember. So while you are clearly correct in your work with regard to these prophecies, some verses like Verse 13:18 tend to also show Rome. It may be the case that both occur simultaneously, that of Europe and also that of the Middle East. However, we did witness the migration of Islam into Europe during the past few years.
It may be the case that Islam stands for an anti-debasement movement that is supported by Rome or something like that where the one movement is supported by Rome. Like a co-mingling of the Islamic with the Christian; for a time not much longer than 3.5 years. Because, Francis will simply bend with the times and accept Islam.
Post Script: Here is the site for the list of popes showing that Francis is 266.
At this point I am not prepared to discuss Revelation 13:8. In my next video I will do a brief summary on the history of the regions of Babylon, Persia, Greece, and Islam ( the whore who rides on these kingdoms ) . I will then go on to demonstrate that the man of sin will have some sort of significant connection with Lebanon which give us an indication of who and where we should be looking. Here is a hint. The Papacy is not it.
schooldad3, I am wondering if Islam ends up dominating Europe. At least that appears to be the case. The Christian movement is complacent and tolerates anything; whereas, the Islamic movement is butchery.
The sheer brutality of the Islamic faith strikes fear into their enemies. If they ever gain the high ground then the world is doomed. Looking forward to your next posting.
EnochWalked: It does feel like the very notion of time is being messed with, like there's a battle between the days being shortened and the days being lengthened. Perhaps Covid lockdowns have changed weather patterns? Very coincidental timing otherwise.

EnochWalked: It's really difficult to define a "neutral" stance, because children don't need to know that their teacher has a homosexual partner, but should be able to hear that a teacher believes in Jesus. Silence is itself a religious/political position.

EnochWalked: www.pravda.com.ua/eng/news/2022/08/8/7362406/ "Russia withdraws its nuclear weapons from US inspections". What don't they want NATO to know? Perhaps some weapons have gone missing, or are beyond repair.
