Ip 151 (c I-40)
Powerful men involved with fundamentalist religion and politics,
shrewd in manipulation, propaganda, and in distorting the word of God
for their own ends will band together to obtain *key* posts in the
government. The posts are not necessarily splashy or public but are
critical points in the power flow where they can exert their
influence to subtly affect world events in their favor.
Leaders in the Middle East will become aware and alarmed by their
encroachments and will change their laws, making it more difficult
for Americans to travel in this area. It will affect American money,
currencies, and trade with the U.S. The Antichrist, in the midst of
building a power base, will be influenced by these actions, in a way
that will be harmful to the Christian cause later. The religious
fundamentalists will cause their own undoing in this way.
