PART 1 - The Beast from the East: A Survey of World Events from the Persian Gulf War to Armageddon
Show Notes

Back in 2003 Pastor Harris prepared a study he titled “The Beast from the East.”  These topics included Daniel, Revelations, Armageddon and the Antichrist. However, in this series of messages Pastor Harris will discuss these teachings through the lens of the time, his time being 2003 when this was originally recorded.

It was Indeed a historic time. Back in 2003 in the Persian Gulf War, the Iraqi dictator Sadam Hussain had been removed from power by the Alliance. Pastor Harris will walk us through God’s timeline and hypothesize about the meaning of these events alongside what we can learn from Revelations.  We also have the luxury of looking back at these events through the lens of 2022.  For example, today we know that Iran, which borders Iraq has risen in power and is on the verge of having nuclear capabilities.  The Persian Empire is being reestablished.  

Due to the recent events in Ukraine we were prompted to revisit Pastor Harris’s teachings on Daniel and Revelations.  It’s fascinating to hear him teach from Revelations and Daniel, and apply those prophecies to his day back in 2003.  We can do the same in 2022 and see where we are in the landscape of war and peace.  There are great lessons and depth of knowledge to be gained in these teachings that have direct impact on our present day.
