in 1910 some 66 per cent of the world’s Christians lived in Europe. Now that number has fallen to about 25.
We are living through the biggest religious transition since the Reformation of the 16th Century,” says Linda Woodhead, professor of the sociology of religion at Lancaster University.
“[Prime Minister] David Cameron may have said at Easter that ‘we are still a Christian country’, but for how much longer?”
The Church of England and the Church of Scotland are in collapse,” says Ms Woodhead.
“The Church lost touch with our everyday life and has become inward-looking rather than being a broad Church for the whole of society.
According to demographer Conrad Hackett at Pew Research Center in the US., in 1910 some 66 per cent of the world’s Christians lived in Europe. Now that has fallen to about 25 per cent.
By 2050, however, Europe will be home to just 16 per cent of the world’s Christians, while four out of every 10 Christians globally will live in sub-Saharan Africa, thanks to high birth rates and falling infant mortality.
The Churches of England and Scotland have failed to win the hearts and minds of the young for several generations now, while numbers for the Catholic Church are really only holding up thanks to immigration.”

The numbers are more catastrophic than what the secular poll agencies are reporting. Because secular people can not understand the meaning of “false Christ’s”, and discern true from false Christianity.
The World has been largely ruled by Christians in the Reformed Christian world. Nations like the US, Canada, UK, Australia and the Scandinavia’s countries have always been portrayed as the light’s of the free world. Rejecting Catholicism, and escaping both Fascism and Communism. Since 1948 we have seen the state of Israel rise as the light in the Middle East, and a witness of the powers of the living God to the whole World.
In our generation we see threes nations walk back into paganism and love of money. Even Israel, where 70 per cent of the people are seculsr. Their fall from grace will be brutal. They walk right into the traps of the last and final antichrist.
We see the rise of totalitarian states. Like China, and the oil feed sultans of the Muslim World. Together they hold almost 3 billion people captive to atheism and Islam.
The man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, lifted his right hand and his left hand toward heaven, and I heard him swear by him who lives forever, saying, “It will be for a time, times and half a time.When the power of the holy people has been finally broken, all these things will be completed.”
The Bible says that the age of democracy and nationalism is over. Evil men have removed the nations, and build larger unions of anti-democratic governance. A small elite run the office of power, contrary to the will of the people.
There will in the end of the age be 10 such unions, who will life one of the 10 leaders to the seat of the “supreme leader”. He will perform signs and wonders, and be hailed as the global “peace makers”. The multitudes that will worship him as their “Holy father” will have no fear of God. They have rejected the truth, and they will perish the day the Messiah returns as the Lion of Judah.
And the Lion of Judah is the same person as the Lamb of God. During His first coming, He can to save the world. At the end of the age of grace, He will return to judge the living and the dead.
Be wise. Accept Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah as Lord and God today.
