The Bible gives many specific prophecies that will be fulfilled in the time immediately leading up to Jesus Christ’s return. Three key areas in which specific prophecies are given are the moral, spiritual and physical decline of the leading English-speaking nations, the rise of a new European-centered superpower as foretold in Revelation 17 and Daniel 2, and conditions in the Middle East leading to an end-time clash of civilizations as foretold in Daniel 11. Where are we on the timeline of these events and how could these prophecies be fulfilled?
