THE AMERICAS: Deleted?

obama_putin

Let’s review a few of the following thoughts together.    Obama, Rouhani, and Putin seem to be working together as explained later. Chatter has increased about massive mega-earthquakes across America at a level never before heard. ‘Atlantis’ is said to not be a past city, but a future continent as stated in the video at this link and documented in the video at this link. And then there’s a massive economic tsunami being predicted by high-level globalist leaders.

What if all of these reports have something in common?

If some of the best and brightest who are moral and well-meaning in the intelligence, military and local law enforcement communities just believe whatever their superiors, news feeds, and ‘intelligence’ data tell them, won’t the populace as well? Who will see ‘it’ coming? How deeply in trouble are Americans?

This lack of perception – this darkness is exacerbated by a deep abiding fear in the guts of the few who see what is happening – a fear that makes them afraid to speak out, paranoid, frozen, which can leave them almost feeling desperate and hopeless. Furthermore, the threats, dirty tricks, whispering campaigns, blackmail, mass surveillance, and technological manipulation are being employed to shut down the last few voices who are speaking out.  Not everything is as it seems.

How many of the ‘moral’ have been a huge help to the Enemy without even knowing it … but I digress.

I have heard numerous leaders voicing their fear of what might be taking place in America very soon. People with ties to intelligence are warning of what this year might be like.  World leaders are making very troubling comments and placing alerts to others. Something monumental must be happening and very soon.

images4Remember that conversation between Obama and Putin that showed how chummy they are? It took place just before the last election.  Well, Obama recently called Putin and we are told he didn’t even mention Putin’s aggressive actions toward our military on the call. So what’s up?

Well, first here’s another thought.  If Obama is chummy with Putin in private, but acts like his nemesis in public, then what might be Obama’s relationship with Iran’s President Rouhani?  Some are saying his deal with Iran was one of the most radical deals in history.  It basically guaranteed not only the massacre of Israel, but also the eventual possibility of Iran using nuclear weapons against America.  And then there’s not just Iran and Putin, is there?  There’s also ‘the Kims’ leading North Korea. What would happen if these men all united with Obama? What could happen if the great Jihad is near? What if someone pushed a ‘red button’ and played ‘martyr’? Or what if several someones did this?  I caution you to look behind the mask. Several of the covert agents of Rome are also sounding the warning [UPDATE: On the morning that I posted this article, one of Rome’s valuable infiltrators published a similar article to mine that same day with similar warnings, but it’s expected that she would do so for credibility purposes; for once the madness begins, they want it to look like they were the ones warning people].

If Obama has been painted to be radical as a President in such a way that the world could believe that he would be capable of assisting the Muslims in an ‘inside job’, then it just might make a believable story if ‘something happened’ to America. After all, most people are flabbergasted with how Obama has stayed in power, while constantly vetoing the will of the people, and many Americans are afraid of what he might do next.  What if in addition to a ‘police state’ and another Nazi Germany, Obama has worse things in mind? And not really Obama, but the Global Roman Occult who are his Puppet Masters.  They continue to infuriate Putin using their puppet Obama. Or could it all be a stage play and all of these world leaders could be the Occult’s players? Even if you don’t want to participate in this grisly tale, much of the world is going to soon be facing times darker than have ever been seen in world history according to prophecy especially after Seal Four. What is Seal Four?

I have heard all types of theories on America’s place in prophecy. Many admit that they don’t really know. I fear that this is the real truth about America’s place in the near future and in the worst possible way. Is it possible that ‘America the Beautiful’ may soon become ‘America the Deleted’?

One theory is that America is one of the ‘young lions’ of Tarshish seen in Ezekiel 38.

“Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof, shall say unto thee, Art thou come to take a spoil? hast thou gathered thy company to take a prey? to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil?” – Ezekiel 38:13

Tarshish’s location is debatable, first of all. Some put Tarshish as far away as Britain. Some towards Yemen where most think Sheba and Dedan are located. The name Tarshish in the Old Testament is Hebrew and sounds much like the Greek name Tarsus in the New Testament, so some place Tarshish at the location of Tarsus, located left of modern-day Syria, towards the bottom of modern-day Turkey. This location for Tarshish is halfway between Britain and Yemen. Most theories agree Tarshish is somewhere along the coasts of the Mediterranean. Sheba and Dedan are also thought to be coastal countries around Saudi Arabia. All of this said, I have reviewed the Scriptures on ‘young lions’, and this term is used as a reference to ‘nations who are taking a spoil of other nations’, and this makes the most sense. Several passages seem to be a cryptic reference to either Ninevah or Bashan (modern-day Syria) or Rome as well (one passage seems connected to Israel’s destruction by Rome’s hand).

Overall, its interpretation is a bit shrouded and uncertain. In other words, the idea of it being America is quite imaginative at best. Here are the Scriptures for you to peruse as well on ‘young lions’.

Again, there is no real mention of America, Canada, South America, or Australia in prophecy. Another theory is that perhaps America is part of Rome, and one of the ‘iron legs’ found in Daniel the prophet’s vision in Daniel chapter 2.  That might be a bit of a ‘stretch’ (pun intended), but it may also be the only option left.  Or is it?

Another recent theory is that of America being ‘Babylon the Great’ in Revelation 17 and 18, but that theory is difficult to prove.  For example, Babylon the Great is a city (or ‘polis’ as the Greek says), has a golden cup in her hand, is drunk with the blood of martyrs and saints, and sits on seven hills (John the Apostle knew that everyone knew Rome was the ‘city on seven hills’ and Rome has historically been called ‘Babylon’).  Even if you assign the ‘golden cup’ some sort of meaning, pretend that the ‘city’ is metaphorical, attempt to prove that somehow the seven hills are the seven mountain ranges of North and South America (which is a bit sketchy), there is still one thing you will lack.   The one thing lacking is the blood of the martyrs flowing in America. Since a Roman emperor is to be the final False Messiah, then it would behoove Rome to ensure the blood of the saints are flowing in America. Could this be why Rome chose Obama as their puppet in the White House?  Now, Revelation 18 says regarding Babylon the Great “for in one hour is thy judgment come”.  So technically, the ‘one hour’ judgement of the Great Whore  (i.e. the real Babylon the Great) takes place toward the very end of the seven year period, not the beginning, but perhaps the False Messiah doesn’t have too many options when he’s attempting to create a ‘cover story’ and a replacement for Rome’s destruction.

Therefore, while this theory of America being ‘Babylon the Great’ is beneficial to the final Roman Messiah in his quest for the worship of the world, it means that if you accept this theory, you must accept the fact that Christian blood will soon flow in America and that America will no longer be found (which is another description of Babylon the Great). We’ve been told and shown in videos for years now of hundreds of ‘camps’ in America, of guillotines being shipped, of refrigerated trucks being used by FEMA, and numerous other morbid, grisly preparations. What’s their purpose? And why are we told in the Bible that in the last days there will be those who are beheaded for Christ?  And why is the guillotine the chosen form of execution by the evil powers of the Occult Romans?

A Knights Templar who believes in ‘Lucifer’, as he stated to me personally, told me that the guillotine is a form of execution by which the organs can be salvaged and frozen for later use.  In the article at this link, you will read about a legal question in which a driver wonders if he can continue using his truck for food transportation after FEMA had used his truck for transporting dead bodies.  It’s also said that hundreds and hundreds of refrigerated trucks were used by FEMA for the September 11, 2001 event.  If you remember Hitler’s evil experiments during the Holocaust, he was already finding ways to use the body parts of his victims. It appears that Nazi Germany may have well been the pilot program, and that the evil Roman Occult leadership is ready to conduct the real program … in the United States.

Even if you don’t accept this theory of America being ‘Babylon the Great’ (and I have very real problems with it, and believe Rome is the real ‘Babylon the Great’), you must admit that it’s the best route for the final Roman anti-Christ, since it would allow America, instead of Rome, to look like ‘Babylon the Great’, and allow the final False Messiah to look like the world savior.  After all the true Messiah and Savior of the World, Jesus Christ, is seen coming into His Kingdom right after the destruction of Babylon the Great. Thus, I can see Rome licking their lips at this theory even as I write it.  So whether Rome is trying to make America look like Babylon the Great or whether America is Babylon the Great, either way you will notice that things do not look good for America when it comes to America’s future place in prophecy based upon this theory.  And I’ve noticed that many are pushing forward this belief on the internet.  What if that’s because the Romans have decided they have found their proxy for themselves – a ‘Babylon the Great’ or ‘Atlantis’ to take their own place in Revelation? It is said that covert agents of Rome centuries ago were already using a coded name for America – that of ‘Atlantis’. Why?

Is this why these global Roman Occult’s many giant corporations have been outsourcing all of their work in the past couple of decades? Is this why the Romans want so many of America’s troops over in the Middle East, so they can use them after the continents of the Americas are gone? Is that why almost all manufacturing and other goods have been moved to other countries? Have they known all along that ‘Atlantis’ was never a past civilization under water, but a future one? Is that why they made veiled references toward the United States as ‘Atlantis’ even centuries ago? You would be amazed to read some of the potential evidence on this piece, but ‘Atlantis’ is not the central focus of this article.

Theologians for many, many years have pondered the place of North America, South America, and Australia in prophecy.  What if there is none, because they don’t exist?

This past week, I was pondering this age-old question on America’s place, and my mind happened to think upon the fourth seal of Revelation chapter 6 about the same time.  So I started to do the math … literally … in a spreadsheet.  So this is only a theory, but first we need to understand Seal Four, and how it might connect to certain events presently.

I have the nagging feeling that Obama’s ‘Muslim’ appearance seems to be a ‘cover story’.  After all, he was a fund raiser for the  Catholic Church – one of his only jobs before taking the role of President.  And then there are other connections he has had with Rome such as the Jesuits in his intelligence cabinet, and his purported job with the CIA front, Business International.  That doesn’t sound like a Muslim, but instead an Occult Roman, especially when you know that a Knight of Malta, awarded by the Vatican, is the one who setup the CIA with a group of Catholics and former Nazis such as Reinhard Gehlen and his intelligence team known as the Gehlen Orb.

Okay, so here’s the math, and I’ll even add pictures to this page, so you can see the numbers for yourself.  The fourth seal of Revelation is found early in the Book of Revelation in chapter 6.  It states that one quarter of the world’s population will be killed.  That’s a lot of people, so I did the math.  Based upon census reports that were taken mainly from around 2010 to 2015, we find the world’s population to be about 7.4 billion.  One quarter of the people would be 1.85 billion people.  If you were to delete the following countries from the globe, you would still fall short of removing 1.85 billion people.

  1. USA
  2. Canada
  3. Mexico
  4. Australia
  5. Iceland
  6. Greenland
  7. Japan
  8. Indonesia
  9. Singapore
  10. Korea
  11. South America and other oceanic countries and islands:
    • Argentina
    • Bolivia
    • Brazil
    • Chile
    • Colombia
    • Ecuador
    • Falkland Islands
    • French Guiana
    • Guyana
    • Paraguay
    • Peru
    • S. Georgia and S. Sandwich Islands (UK)
    • Suriname
    • Uruguay
    • Venezuela
    • Papau New Guinea
    • New Zealand
    • Madagascar

As you will notice above, this means deleting half the globe, or more specifically the countries which really aren’t a part of the ‘Old World’ and which really aren’t mentioned in the Bible in its prophecies.  Furthermore, you could add the following countries, whose armies are possibly those decimated by GOD in Ezekiel 38 and 39, and you still wouldn’t reach 25% of the world’s population.

  1. Russia
  2. Ukraine
  3. Turkey
  4. Georgia
  5. Azerbaijan
  6. Iran
  7. Bahrain
  8. Qatar
  9. Libya
  10. Sudan

I realize that a quarter of the world’s population in the fourth seal of Revelation 6’s prophecy is to be killed by death, plagues, beasts of the earth, and hunger, but if you read Daniel 11, verses 36 through 45, you will see the lands that the anti-Christ appears to overthrow.  They include most of the Middle Eastern countries, Egypt, parts of Africa, the North, and the East.  They must also include the Roman Empire or modern-day Europe, since the Roman empire is the empire that comes after the Grecian kingdom found in Daniel 2, 7, and 8, and with chapter 9 practically saying the future prince or Anti-Christ will come from Rome.  We feel confident that is why Europe is not mentioned in Daniel 11, since the Roman Beast will be the predator on the other nations.  If Europe, Africa, Egypt, the North, and the East of the Old World are still around, from where’s the missing 25% of the world’s population going to be extracted? After all, 25% of the world population is a lot of people even from starvation, beasts of the earth, and plagues.

And that’s why the thought dawned on me as to why America might not be mentioned in prophecy. Therefore, could it be that a nuclear holocaust either directly on the land (a ball of fire) or by simulating earthquakes or by setting them off as charges underwater (creating massive tsunamis) could wipe out the Americas; then, after that many people are killed from the globe (if the Americas are deleted), a shortage of food occurs due to the global repercussions (i.e. famine due to radiation, darkened skies, freezing temperatures, etc) of such an event taking place, people are eaten by wild beasts as starvation ensues and animals seek food, and plagues from the radiation of the nuclear holocaust begin to descend upon those left in the Old World?

What would happen to America if the Yellowstone National Park or the Snake River Volcano were to erupt as some authors warn us, in the article at this link and in other similar articles? They say the United States could be completely buried by the eruption.  What if one terrorist dropped a suitcase nuke on that area? The dangers today are real, my reader.  Have you read our ‘Most Important Article’ at the top of this page?

Does not Seal Four mention that war will be a reason for death, along with the other causes of wild beasts, plagues, and starvation? After all if Obama, Putin, and Iranian dictator Hassan Rouhani decide to delete America, we may then see Russia and Iran being smitten by GOD during the Battle of Ezekiel along with several other Islamic countries as they attempt to take over Israel according to Ezekiel 38 and 39.  I’m sure the False Messiah would love to take credit for what happens to Russia, Iran, and these other Islamic states, especially if they have just deleted America.  The False Messiah would love to steal the glory of GOD, since it is GOD who will fight the Battle of Ezekiel, protecting Israel and annihilating Russia, Iran, and the other states mentioned.

Could Putin’s new nuclear-capable submarines be the tool used by the Roman Occult to ‘delete America’? If Rome has worked so hard at making Obama look ‘Muslim’, he could be their ‘Muslim Messiah’.  After all, Muslims have been awaiting their own Mahdi Messiah for centuries now.  Could Rome create their Messiah in the form of Obama and then have him play the ‘ultimate martyr’ by pushing the ‘red button’ along with Putin and Rouhani to end America’s existence after massacring much of the population, while giving the Muslims their ‘Messiah’? If Rome has been building Obama to be their nemesis so they can seize the opportunity for glory as the savior and messiah to mankind, then this would play right into their hand. What if they decided to bring to pass that passage in Revelation 6 where one quarter of the world’s population die in order to set themselves up as the Messiah? What if they decide to make America their proxy as ‘Babylon the Great’ by massacring millions of Christians (remember they must make America look ‘drunk with the blood of the saints’) and then burning her with fire (i.e. the red button) and making her no more to be found?

What if a nuclear missile campaign aimed at America, Canada, Mexico, and South America were to occur in such a way that these continents were covered in water eternally? Would this not leave the Biblical world of ancient times (the Old World of the Middle East, Europe, Africa, and Asia) intact for the final events of world prophecy to unfold?  Could such a nuclear holocaust also further melt the polar caps a bit more and leave these countries permanently buried beneath the sea (i.e. no more to be found)?

I hate the thought that Obama or the global Occult of Rome would do something like this, but the possibility did cross my mind. I am not a big fan of this theory since I am living in America, but I can not think through Scripture based upon what I like or don’t like.  After all, this scenario would definitely play into the plans of Rome, while explaining the fourth seal of Revelation.  And Rome is not a big fan of American Catholics who they consider to be too ‘liberal’.   If America and Canada and South America and Australia, and many of the island countries impacted by the side effects (i.e. tsunamis) from such a blast, were covered with water, we would still not reach 25% of the world’s population.  If the Battle of Ezekiel also took place in close proximity to such an event and all of those nations were deleted from the map, then as we said before, it still wouldn’t reach 25% of the world’s population. And then the Roman False Messiah could take charge, and bring ‘hope and change’ (where have we heard that before?).  He could pretend the Battle of Ezekiel was really the Battle of Armageddon.  He could pretend that Obama or whoever was behind such an ignominious event was really the Anti-Christ.  He could pretend that America was Babylon the Great (instead of Rome). And he could pretend to be the Messiah who says in Ezekiel 37 that He will make a covenant of peace with Israel and that He will set His tabernacle in the midst of them. This might explain why many believe the False Messiah will build Israel’s temple for them (as he attempts to look like the Messiah).  Daniel chapter 9 also confirms that Anti-Christ will strengthen a covenant with Israel and other nations for peace for seven years. And I really believe the world would follow him, completely deluded.

I hate to admit it, but this sounds like a real scenario.  I hope it’s not, and it is only just a theory, but below is the math.  Only GOD knows for sure.  When transvestites are overrunning our states, and one man who turned himself into a woman now wants to turn himself into a dragon, I must admit that America sounds an awful lot like Sodom and Gomorrah.

If Rome is set upon bringing this scenario upon America and pretending America is ‘Babylon the Great’, then we can expect massive executions of Christians and the continents on this side of the globe to be deleted.

We must pray for America and sow the seed of the Gospel while there is still time.  Is it possible that those ‘wise virgins’ found ‘worthy’ to escape the coming nightmare (using Bible terminology) will be raptured, leaving the ‘foolish virgins’ or unfaithful Christians to face the massive executions that might be coming? If so, let’s hope we’re found ‘worthy’ to escape this holocaust.

If so, I would expect the following scenario could possibly take place theoretically speaking.  The ‘wise virgins’ or faithful believers might be raptured, the ‘foolish virgins’ or unfaithful believers might then be executed (separating the tares from the wheat with a scythe),  and then the judgment or ‘deletion’ would occur of all the sex perverts, ‘Hogwarts’ witches, GOD-haters, producers of the majority of the world’s porn, Hollywood, and an anti-Christ populace that have murdered over 50 million babies and who have removed GOD from public and corporate life. This is a very sobering and realistic theory. Is this why Rome appears to have been corrupting America for the past century like a farmer fattening its pig for the slaughter? Only GOD knows what the future holds.  Our job is to be faithful, and to pray, work for the Messiah, and wait upon the LORD to renew our strength.  We are told in the Book of Revelation that no matter how horrific it gets down here on this planet that most of Earth’s citizens will remain unrepentant, clinging to their lying theories of ‘evolution’ as an insane person clinging to a security blanket in hope that by placing ‘millions’, ‘billions’, and even ‘trillions’ of years into their theory that it will make it more believable, and thereby extinguish the truth that they will have to face their Creator on Judgment Day. After all, allowing Christ to pay for their sins is too humbling for them – first to admit they are sinners, second to admit that their daily lifestyle is exceedingly sinful, and third to admit they can’t do it on their own and they need the Messiah Jesus’ help.

Blessings and grace to you and your family.  I leave you with the photo of the mathematics I did, as well as a precious verse. Also, be sure to read our Most Important Article, because you will want to be ready when everything takes place.

THE END begins

in the final days by walter k priceYou may have heard the phrase ‘now the end begins’, but it’s exceedingly doubtful that you have heard it in the context of what I’m about to share. I could provide literally pages of predictions about the ‘end times’ that apply to today, but many could be pushed aside as having been prevalent centuries ago as well.  However, there are certain matters that show that we’re in an unprecedented time period which the Christians of the two past millennia have never experienced until this era, and these matters are chillingly irreversible.

Never before could this be said, but let me explain to you ‘why’.  Israel was foretold to become a nation again by the Bible and 1948 is a fulfillment of this. Many Bible teachers proclaim this.  However, I would like to share several things that are little taught by prophecy teachers, but extremely relevant to what is happening right now.

The_Vision_of_The_Valley_of_The_Dry_BonesIn Ezekiel 37, we read that the dry bones of the valley will be resurrected and turned into one nation under one leader, and that GOD would rule over them forever.  Today, Israel has been resurrected and they are one nation and with one leader.  How close are we to GOD ruling over them forever? What few mention is that Ezekiel is told to prophesy TWICE to the bones.  What happens the first time? The bones come from all over and join together to form an exceeding great force of people.  That’s where we are today, but I believe many miss that second prophesy of Ezekiel.  What is the second prophesy?

In the second phase of Ezekiel prophesying to the dry bones, these bones are filled with the Spirit of GOD.  Where have I seen this thought of Israel receiving the Spirit of GOD?  In Zechariah 12:10 right after GOD destroys the nations that come against Israel. What nations? The ones listed in Ezekiel 38 who right at this very hour are encircling Israel and threatening them.

And where else have I read of GOD putting His Spirit into Israel?  Ezekiel 39:29 right after GOD destroys these certain nations that come against Israel.  Many place this battle shortly before the final seven years of Daniel’s prophecy as found in the very last few verses of Daniel chapter 9.

Where else have I heard of GOD pouring out His Spirit upon Israel?  Romans 11:26 also speaks of a future time in which GOD will turn away ungodliness from Israel.  Other prophecies could be quoted.  Zechariah’s prophecies give the best timeline though.

1874 MapIn Zechariah chapters 12 through 14, we read of how Israel would become a nation again – how that Judah is first (1948) and then Jerusalem (1967).  Israel fought in 1948 to remain in the land she has just been given (Psalm 83), and Jerusalem was inhabited again by Israel (1967) just as those verses prophesied and in that order.  All these things have happened.

And then in Zechariah 12:10, we read of a spectacular battle that appears to be in the very near future.  In this battle (described in great detail in Ezekiel 38-39), these Middle Eastern and Northern nations come against Israel, and after He makes it very clear that He is the One who destroyed these enemies, creating a spectacle for the world to see, He pours out His Spirit upon the Israelis.

This is the second phase of the prophesies of Ezekiel to the dry bones.  It hasn’t happened. Several other things take place after the pouring out of the Spirit upon Israel including a revival in their land where idolatry and abominations are ended.  Imagine what Obama and the United Nations will think of this with all of their ‘political correctness’ and idolatrous world religion talk?  This revival in Israel is followed by further attacks upon Israel by the world and finally the Battle of Armageddon in those three chapters.  This is a great timeline in Zechariah 12 through 14, and it shows also that we are living just prior to when these Ezekiel 38 and 39 attacks will take place against Israel – and ironically, the same nations mentioned in Ezekiel 38 are the same ones creeping around Israel at this present hour. Then after GOD annihilates Israel’s enemies for her in a way that is clear for the world to see, GOD’s Spirit is then poured out upon them and He is their GOD forever.  Yes, He is their GOD even during the horrific events and judgments that follow when 144,000 Jews (12,000 from each tribe) are sealed by Him in Revelation 7 to protect them from His exceedingly horrific judgments that He will execute against the inhabitants of earth.

The first prophecy in Ezekiel 37 has the bones coming together.  The second has the Spirit coming within them.Therefore, we appear to be living presently between these two phases of dry bone prophesies. That’s exciting!

Law-ScrollLet’s take a look at another timeline.  In Matthew 24, Jesus describes the end times for his disciples.  Jesus states that many will represent themselves as ‘Christ’.  One example is the papacy who claim to be the Vicar of Christ (i.e. ‘Vicar’ means ‘substitute’). Others have also made this claim. Then Jesus describes the ‘beginning of sorrows’ or what some might call ‘the beginning of the end’.  The word ‘sorrows’ is the word for birth pains as in the labor of a woman.  This reminds you of the wording back in Isaiah 66 where we see the labor of a woman is shown and then ‘children are born’ and the question is asked:

“Who hath heard such a thing? who hath seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? or shall a nation be born at once? for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children.”

israel-born-in-one-day1Israel was born in one day back in 1948 just as this passage states. In fact, the nations and kingdoms rising against each other, also mentioned in this Matthew 24 passage, were almost the very stimulant for Israel becoming a nation.  Is this not ironic?

As you think of Jesus’ words describing what He describes as ‘birth pains’ preceding these final world events and later when He gives the parable of a fig tree budding, keep this passage in Isaiah 66 about the budding of Israel in mind. The ‘birth pains’ that Jesus describes include international wars, famine, earthquakes, and epidemics of disease. He also describes martyrdom of the saints and an increase in false teaching.

Each of these events have been seen in unprecedented proportions in these last days – last days that the apostles appear to have placed as beginning right about the time of Pentecost in the Book of Acts about fifty days after Jesus’ resurrection if you read Peter’s words in Acts 2 in relation to Joel’s prophecy of the last days.  When the last two millennia are compared to all of the past six millennia, these ‘birth pains’ are quite intense.  When you compare the past century with the preceding two millennia, you will note a remarkable increase in these types of activities that Jesus’ mentioned – there have been almost as many this past century as the two millennia prior.  Also, when you compare this past decade with the past century, these activities such as earthquakes, famine, epidemics, hurricanes, martyrdom, and false teachings have so drastically increased that just this past decade and a half alone have seen about the same as the prior century.  This is indeed remarkable and a sign of a very, very heavy ‘travail’ in the works as we prepare for the end times.  I have written another article on this website giving the statistics which show all of these astounding matters.

Israel is born10If the last days were around Pentecost and Israel is now in the land which is the first phase of Ezekiel’s prophecy, then what else is remarkable?  The rest of Jesus’ words in Matthew 24 are exceedingly poignant.

Not only does Jesus perfectly describe our present era as a time when the love of many will wax cold and when the Gospel will be preached into all the world, but He then in verses 15 through 20 continues the timeline of end time events with a description of the revealing of the man of sin, the false Roman Messiah, who some call anti-Christ.

Then from verses 21 through 31, we are told about the awful horrific time known as the ‘great tribulation’ and the appearance of Jesus in the heavens to war against the nations at the Battle of Armageddon.

holy-spirits-outpouringIn other words, somewhere after the waxing cold of believers and the Gospel being preached to all the world, and somewhere before the next verses telling of the revealing of anti-Christ is where we presently are in history in Matthew 24.  Now these are not the exceedingly poignant words that we mentioned earlier, but we’re getting there.

It’s in verse 32 that Jesus seems to pause after having given His disciples this concise summary of end time events from their ‘birth pains’ all the way to the Battle of Armageddon.  Here He appears to bring Israel back into the focus as He explains a parable of a fig tree.  Throughout Scripture, we see a fig tree oftentimes represents the nation of Israel while an olive tree typically represents the Messianic faith of Israel. Examples of this precedent for Israel’s nation being compared to fig trees exist in Judges 9:10, Song of Solomon 2:13, Jeremiah 8:13, Hosea 9:10, Joel 1:7, Matthew 21:19, and Luke 13:6.

After Jesus summarizes these end time events, He then shares an interesting parable which should make any believer rejoice and bring chilling fear to any unbeliever in our present era.  And this is why I quote His exact words from verse 32 to verse 36:

“Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is nigh: So likewise you, when you shall see all these things, know that it is near at the door. Truly I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. But of that day and hour knows no one, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.”

Just as a fig tree puts forth its leaves with tender branches, you know summer is nigh, Jesus states.  The budding of Israel took place in 1948. Israel has been putting forth their new leaves.  We can assume then that ‘all these things’ such as the ‘abomination of desolation’ and the ‘Battle of Armageddon’ mentioned in the synopsis prior to verse 32 are ‘near at the door’.  In fact, Jesus makes very clear just how ‘near at the door’ the end is in relation to the budding of this fig tree.  He says that ‘this generation shall not pass till all these things be fulfilled’.

Israel is born7Today, fewer and fewer people are alive from the generation when Israel became a nation.  Jesus also makes it clear that His Words are true and that we need not doubt them.  In other words, Jesus is adamant that ‘this generation shall not pass’ until ‘all these things’ are fulfilled.  Keep in mind that ‘all these things’ includes every part of Jesus’ synopsis including the Battle of Armageddon.  He also clarifies that He’s not giving us a ‘day or an hour’, but He is giving us a really big hint – a hint that His disciples asked Him to give them at the beginning of this chapter.

Some state that this parable can be a reference that Israel will not pass away as a nation before these events take place, but I highly doubt this interpretation, though I do not say it is impossible. Why? The context of Jesus’ words – the budding of the fig tree appears to be the major sign that ‘all these things’ are at the door.  Jesus’ words emphasize the nearness of these events and He is giving an answer to His disciples who were asking for timing.   There is a connection between the budding of the fig tree and the final world events.  Remember the words of Ezekiel 37.  I highly doubt that Jesus was making a random statement that Israel would never perish as a nation until He returns at the Battle of Armageddon.  I think Jesus was dropping a really big hint.  In other words, when you see the ‘fig tree’ budding, you can bet you’re standing at the door of the end of all these things, and that the very generation who saw the fig tree bud will still be alive to see ‘all these things’ including the Battle of Armageddon.  I realize that other interpretations can be made of this passage, but more and more after decades of study, I believe this is the more likely interpretation.

Let’s look at another interesting succinct timeline found in 2 Thessalonians 2.   In this chapter, we are told that the ‘restraining’ must be removed from the midst of the earth before the final Roman messianic man of sin can be revealed.  We are also told that the second coming of Jesus can’t take place until the man of sin is revealed.  Therefore, we see a possible rapture followed by the anti-Christ being worshiped, followed by the coming of Jesus at the Battle of Armageddon when every eye will see Him (as Revelation 1 puts it).

PresentDayIsrael

Present Day Israel

Paul made it clear in Romans 11:25 that the ‘fullness of the Gentiles’ would eventually come and that the blindness of Israel was ‘temporary’ or ‘in part’.  He also makes the case for why if Gentiles could be grafted into the Messianic faith or ‘olive tree’, then it’s even easier for Israel to be grafted back into their own Messianic faith in the future when the time of the Gentiles is full.  We also read in 2 Thessalonians 2 that there will be a ‘falling away’ in the end times.  If the Gentiles are fading and Israel is coming back into the focus, then this makes sense.  Also, remember Daniel chapter 9’s timeline of 490 years.  We see the ‘pause button’ was pushed at year 483 back at the crucifixion of the Messiah when the Jews didn’t believe, but there are seven years left to the work GOD is doing in the Jews; therefore, anyone who teaches ‘replacement theology’ or that Christians took the place of Israel in GOD’s covenant with them, they are extremely poor theologians.  However, sadly there are many of these today in an era when the ‘falling away’ seems to be occurring at an alarming rate.

Did not Jesus say in Matthew 24 that the love of many would wax cold? Did not Paul the apostle write in 2 Thessalonians 2 that this was an event that would take place and that then the ‘man of sin’ would be revealed after the ‘restraining’ was removed?  If the ‘restraining’ being removed is the Holy Spirit and He is the Seal of Redemption to those of us who have trusted Him, then I would assume that those who are ‘watching’ will be taken with the Spirit from this planet … followed by the showing of the ‘man of sin’ … followed by the great tribulation … followed by the return of Jesus at the Battle of Armageddon.

Wedding2It matters not what your theological teachers have taught.  The Bible is very clear in how it has presented the truth of what is to happen in various Books of the Bible, and it has given us a very clear outline of these end times with very clear signs that we’re there.  Based upon the timing that the Bible gives us, I believe we are living …

  • Between the two phases of Ezekiel’s prophesying to the dry bones seen in Ezekiel 37
  • Between the preaching of the Gospel to the whole world and the revealing of the ‘man of sin’ in Matthew 24
  • Just prior to the ‘Restraining’ being removed to allow Anti-Christ to appear as seen in 2 Thessalonians 2
  • Just prior to when mid-east and northern nations attack Israel and the Israelis then have the Spirit poured upon them as seen in Ezekiel 37 and 38, as well as in Zechariah 12 through 14.
  • After the budding of Israel when her leaves have been put forth at summertime, standing ‘near at the door’ of all these things that Jesus preached would take place, including the Battle of Armageddon
  • Just prior to the call of the Groom in Song of Solomon 2 who called to His Bride standing in the secret places of the cliff and the cleft of the rocks to ‘come away’ at summertime
  • Just prior to the final words of Matthew 24 which say that ‘one will be taken and the other left’ which Jesus followed with the parable of the wise virgins who were watching for the Groom in Matthew 25 when the Groom came suddenly, leaving behind the foolish virgins who lacked sufficient filling of “Oil” to suffer through the events coming upon the world

Remember Jesus’ words to the seven congregations of GOD in Revelation 3 where He promised to keep one congregation from the time of testing coming upon the world, while warning another congregation that unless they repented, He would come upon them as a thief in the night? Remember the five foolish virgins, though not harlots, were left behind?  Remember Jesus’ words?

“Watch therefore: for you know not when the Master of the house comes, at evening, or at midnight, or at the cock-crowing, or in the morning: Lest coming suddenly, He finds you sleeping. And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.”

Remember Paul the apostle’s words as well?

“Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.” – Luke 21:36

RAPTURE: If, when, or not?

‘Ready or not, here I come?

Will most church attendees even see it coming? What an event to miss.  Why are there foolish virgins missing ‘the event’ in Jesus’ parable?  Are we given a timeline or timing? Study this chart in the below picture carefully and hear my initial thoughts.

  1. Feast of Pentecost (summer) – the Rapture?
  2. Feast of Trumpets (1st fall feast) – Ezekiel 38-39 Battle Call?
  3. Day of Atonement (2nd fall feast, 10 days later) – Israel turns to the Messiah?
  4. Feast of Tabernacles (3rd fall feast, 5 days later) – future temple built? Anti-Christ covenant of 7 years?
  5. Middle of final 7 years – covenant broken and abomination of desolation
  6. Feast of Trumpets (1st fall feast – seven years later) – Jesus descends and every eye sees Him with His saints? angels gather remaining elect?
  7. Day of Atonement – Jesus pleads with the nations? destroys the wicked?
  8. Feast of Tabernacles – Jesus IS the Temple upon earth for 1000 years?
  9. After 1000 years (Revelation 20) – The old heavens and earth melt with a fervent heat; Jesus judges the lost, casts hell, the false messiah, the false prophet, Satan, and all those whose name are not written in the Lamb’s Book of Life due to their unbelief into the lake of fire that burns forever; the new heavens, new earth, and new Jerusalem are now unveiled and inhabited by the Lamb of GOD, Jesus the Messiah, forever and ever with His saints – Hallelujah!

Prophetic Timeline

Could this be the timing of what happens in the future in relation to the Feasts of Israel in the Bible? Keep in mind that the Feast of Pentecost takes place June 12th of this year (although I am definitely not setting dates which is foolish). The Feast of Pentecost is calculated by counting (‘costing’) from the first Sabbath after the Passover for fifty (‘Pente’) days – thus, ‘Pente’-‘cost’.  Those who follow the Roman state religion of Catholicism (which many ‘Protesting Catholics’ or Protestants also follow) will date all of their holy days according to pagan Easter (Ostarte or Astarte) rather than Biblical Passover (a date actually stated in Scripture as the 14th day of the first Hebrew month, leaving no room for Roman doctrine). Therefore, keep this in mind when you go to look for ‘Pentecost 2016’, since the Roman State religion of Catholicism (Bel worship in guise of El worship) dominates much of the internet date-setting for this day.

While the above possible timing is theoretical, it may be of interest to those who understand the potential relationship between the fall festivals of Israel in the Bible and the second return of Jesus, especially the fact that both the tabernacle and the temple were completed and dedicated around the time of the Feast of the Tabernacles (24th of Kislev).

Jesus gave His disciples signs of His coming in three different parallel chapters of the Gospels, namely Matthew 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21.  GOD knew that the world would be overtaken by the return of Jesus much like a man being surprised in the middle of the night by a thief.

“But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.” – 1 Thessalonians 5:4

fat_manThe wording “thief in the night” is associated with the wicked whenever the second physical return of Jesus to earth is mentioned.  This second coming is expected to take place at the end of the final seven years of Daniel’s prophecy.  However, there will be nobody in the media saying “here’s the beginning of the seven year period”.  My guess is that most won’t even know they’re in the final seven years of Daniel’s prophecy.

Whereas, the ‘thief in the night’ warning is for the unbelievers, the wording to believers is always ‘watch’.  I believe believers should ‘watch’ for the rapture, while the unbelievers will be overtaken by the second physical return of Jesus.

How close are we to the rapture of believers in the likely event that it takes place? How close is the physical coming of Jesus Christ to earth to judge unbelievers? And how soon will the ‘mark of the beast’, known as the number of the Anti-Christ’s name, take place? Could the ‘mark’ be preceded by the collapse of the world economy?  Is not an economic ‘mark’ sensible from a banking standpoint as QR codes and UPC codes are the norm, and border security and terrorism is all the rage today? Are not biometric IDs now available in the form of tattoos as shown in other articles on this website? Many professing ‘believers’ act today if it’s no big deal to take the ‘mark’.  What does GOD say in the Bible?

“And the smoke of their torment ascends up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receives the mark of his name.” – Revelation 14:11

What could be the timing of these events? Could they be as close as this coming year?

Amir - TribulationsAmir Tsarfati, a major in the Israeli Defense Forces connected to Israeli intelligence and a Christian evangelist, warned in a New Year’s message that this year would be a year of tribulation.   Pastor Jack Hibbs, a well-known pastor in California, also is connected to high-level leaders in the American government.  He also warned at the start of this year that this year would be a year of tribulations.  They were not saying it would be the tribulation period, but simply a year of tribulations.  In other words, they must know something they’re not telling us.  That should give you something to ponder.  And then there’s this quote from an article at this link by ex-BIS chief economist William White.

The situation is worse than it was in 2007. Our macroeconomic ammunition to fight [economic] downturns is essentially all used up.

When it comes to timing, let’s address the basics first before we get into too much detail – let’s address some basic signs and then the subject of the rapture.  Then we’ll sink our teeth into some more interesting matters.

SIGNS OF THE TIMES

22JOURNEYS1_SPAN-articleLargeWe are told natural disasters will escalate at the end of time.  Read the article at this link, and decide if you think we’re there.  A great number of other fulfilled prophecies regarding the end times are shown throughout this blog and on our partner political site, but the article at this link has a good deal of signs listed that have been fulfilled.

The fact that the Jewish people are in the land of Israel fulfills a massive number of prophecies.  If you look at the article regarding the Temple Mount on our site, you’ll see potential signs of how very, very close we are.  One can see right now that Israel is surrounded by every nation mentioned in the battles of Ezekiel 38 and 39, and these nations are preparing for war against Israel.  Many prophetic teachers believe this battle will start off the time of the final seven years before the reign of Jesus Christ on earth.

So while we don’t know the timeline, the Bible has given us an indication of how close we may be.  Also, what about the timing? Is there a possible metaphorical connection between the fall festivals of Israel and the second physical return of Jesus descending to earth?  And what about the possible rapture theory? Wasn’t it proposed by an ecstatic woman or a Jesuit priest or in a variety of other ways such as the Scofield Bible? I must state that the final word is what the Bible says, not what ‘historical Christianity’ says, since much of it was Romanized by Baalist priests and continued by Protestant priests. Therefore, the Bible must be our sole guide – not history or tradition.  Now I must say that I admit that there is no clear evidence of a rapture of the saints before the final seven years. Or is there?

THE RAPTURE AND THE END OF THE TIME OF THE GENTILES

435617Why does it seem that all we see throughout the Book of Revelation on the earth during the final seven years are Jewish Christians such as those in Revelation 7, 12, and 14?  Gentile Christians are shown, but usually in heaven. Why?  Is not the last seven years known as Daniel’s final prophetic completion of the total 490 years related to the Jewish people coming into the kingdom of Messiah? Isn’t that the exact central focus of the 490 years in Daniel 9 which specifically says that they are pertaining to the Jews and their city of Jerusalem?  And don’t some scholars state that this is the time of Jacob’s trouble mentioned by the prophet Jeremiah in chapter 30 of his prophetic book?

“Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble; but he shall be saved out of it.” – Jeremiah 30:7

Isn’t that because the ‘time of the Gentiles’ is expected to end just before the time of the believing Jews begins again?

“For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles be come in.” – Romans 11:25

So what is this ‘mystery’ of which Paul speaks throughout this chapter and passage? Is it not the fact that the ‘time of the Gentiles’ will ‘be come in’, and then the time of the Jews will continue where they left off at the year of Jesus’ crucifixion which was year “483” of Daniel’s prophecy in chapter 9 of his prophetic book regarding 490 years? Did not Daniel state that the 490 years would begin with the order to rebuild the temple? Was this not about 450 years before the birth of Christ? And would that not place the Jewish prophetic timeclock at year 483 when Jesus gave His life for our sins at the age of 33 years old?  This leaves 7 years of Jewish prophetic time yet to come.

If you visit the respected Christian Apologist site carm.org, it doesn’t take much of a stand on either side of whether there’s a rapture, but it does alert you that the two main passages for its defense are 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 and I Corinthians 15; however, neither of these passages appear to be useful for a rapture event. Why?

Both passages speak of the dead rising and thus appear to be the same event

If these are the same event, then what’s the timing?

1 Thessalonians 4:16 states “the LORD Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout”.  If this is a ‘rapture verse’, then how can Christians be quietly taken out of the way  into heaven with shouting from Jesus taking place? Doesn’t this look far more like the seventh trumpet of Revelation with the voice of an archangel and a last trumpet sounding?  Does it not look more like the Battle of Armageddon in which Jesus will physically descend to earth? Do not most rapture teachers state that the rapture will take place quietly before the seven years of Daniel’s prophecies and long before Jesus physically descends from heaven at His second coming?

I hate to break it to the pre-tribulation rapture adherents, but 1 Thessalonians 4 has Jesus coming down. This disqualifies this passage as being a rapture passage.  Since this chapter is the same timing as I Corinthians 15, this probably disqualifies the passage in 1 Corinthians 15 as well as being a rapture proof text since both speak of the dead in Christ at this event.   However, I don’t think this kills the rapture theory. Or even the pre-tribulation rapture theory.

bible_blackAfter all, the entire “time of the Gentiles” is a mystery that Paul said was not revealed until his era – a time when the Holy Spirit came down upon believers during the Jewish festival of Pentecost (yes, Pentecost was a Jewish Biblical festival they were keeping). Therefore, precedent exists that GOD sometimes gives hints about the future without revealing all the details as we have seen in the Old Testament hints about the Gentiles being grafted into the Jewish faith of the Messianic promises, while keeping the ‘time of the Gentiles’ or the age between the 69th week and 70th week of Daniel a complete mystery which so far has lasted two thousand years.  That’s a lot of time to keep a mystery from the Old Testament prophets, but we see historically that it was a mystery GOD kept from them.

Thus, with precedence of only hints being given (i.e. no ‘hard evidence’) for this astounding mystery of gigantic proportions which we now know as the birth of the ‘called out’ congregation of GOD consisting of both Jews and non-Jews, we thus see the ‘rapture’ as being a viable theory and another extremely possible mystery that has lots of hints but no ‘hard evidence’. Revelation 3 also hints at Jesus rescuing the Sardis congregation (i.e. ‘rapture’), but not the Philadelphia congregation unless they repent. To the congregation of Sardis, Jesus states:

“Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.” – Revelation 3:3

As mentioned previously, the ‘thief in the night’ wording seems to always be connected with the physical return of Jesus at the end of the seven year period. Thus, it is interesting that to the congregation in Philadelphia, Jesus seems to promise to keep them from this final seven year period of astounding tests:

… Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of trials, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.” – Revelation 3:10

Law-ScrollFurthermore, Paul tells that at the end of the “time of the Gentiles”, we will see the time of the Jews returning and there is a prediction in both the Old and New Testaments that all of Israel will be saved in one day.

“Hear now, O Joshua the high priest, thou, and thy fellows that sit before thee: for they are men wondered at: for, behold, I will bring forth my servant the BRANCH. For behold the stone that I have laid before Joshua; upon one stone shall be seven eyes: behold, I will engrave the graving thereof, saith the LORD of hosts, and I will remove the iniquity of that land in one day. ” – Zechariah 3:8-9

“Thus saith the LORD of hosts; If it be marvelous in the eyes of the remnant of this people in these days, should it also be marvelous in mine eyes? saith the LORD of hosts. Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Behold, I will save my people from the east country, and from the west country; And I will bring them, and they shall dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God, in truth and in righteousness.” – Zechariah 8:6-8

“Isaiah also cries concerning Israel, Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant shall be saved” – Romans 9:27

“Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace. … For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles be come in. And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.” – Romans 11:5, 25-27

“Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Now will I turn back the captivity of Jacob, and have mercy upon the whole house of Israel, and will be jealous for my holy name; After that they have borne their shame, and all their trespasses whereby they have trespassed against me, when they dwelt safely in their land, and none made them afraid. When I have brought them again from the people, and gathered them out of their enemies’ lands, and am sanctified in them in the sight of many nations; Then shall they know that I am the LORD their God, which caused them to be led into captivity among the heathen: but I have gathered them unto their own land, and have left none of them any more there. Neither will I hide my face any more from them: for I have poured out my spirit upon the house of Israel, saith the Lord GOD.” – Ezekiel 39:25-29

holy-spirits-outpouringIn this last passage, we see at the end of the battles of Ezekiel 38 and 39 that the Spirit is poured out upon the Jews.  This appears to be connected to the day when all of Israel is saved.

And then there’s the 144,000 Jewish Christians shown in Revelation chapter 7 who come from the twelve tribes of Israel. Where are these 144,000 Christian Jews today?  I believe this pouring out of the Spirit is where they emanate and I believe that the “time of the Gentiles” will already be over for several reasons.

Also, keep in mind that multiple times throughout the Old Testament prophecies and also in the New Testament such as in the passages from Romans 9 and 11 above, there is a mention of a remnant from Israel in the last days.  In Zechariah 14, for example, we read:

“Behold, the day of the LORD is coming, And your spoil will be divided in your midst. For I will gather all the nations to battle against Jerusalem; The city shall be taken, The houses rifled, And the women ravished. Half of the city shall go into captivity, But the remnant of the people shall not be cut off from the city.” – Zechariah 14:1-2

“But now I will not be unto the remnant of this people as in the former days, saith the LORD of hosts. For the seed shall be prosperous; the vine shall give her fruit, and the ground shall give her increase, and the heavens shall give their dew; and I will cause the remnant of this people to possess all these things.” – Zechariah 8:11-12

“And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.” – Revelation 12:17

“And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call.” – Joel 2:32

“And I will make her that halted a remnant, and her that was cast far off a strong nation: and the LORD shall reign over them in mount Zion from henceforth, even for ever.” – Micah 4:7

“Therefore will he give them up, until the time that she which travails [as in child birth – metaphorically speaking] hath brought forth: then the remnant of his brethren shall return unto the children of Israel.” – Micah 5:3

“Who is a God like unto thee, that pardons iniquity, and passes by the transgression of the remnant of His heritage? he retains not his anger for ever, because he delights in mercy.” – Micah 7:18

“The remnant of Israel shall not do iniquity, nor speak lies; neither shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth: for they shall feed and lie down, and none shall make them afraid.” – Zephaniah 3:13

“Isaiah also cries concerning Israel, Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant shall be saved:” – Romans 9:27

Have you read 2 Thessalonians 2? Many teachers believe it is a reference to the Holy Spirit being removed from the earth.  Could this be when Christians are removed as well?  After all, the Bible is clear that the Holy Spirit is the believer’s seal of redemption.  Wouldn’t it be strange to have the ‘Seal’ removed, but not the believers?  I would find that strange indeed.  Thus, I believe it very well could be that believers are also removed at this time. 2 Thessalonians is also very clear with the timing.  The ‘restraining’ that restrains will be removed out of the way and then the Anti-Christ will be revealed.  It also states that the second coming of Jesus at His physical return to earth will come after the man of perdition or the Anti-Christ is revealed.  Hmmm.  In other words:

  1. Restraining that restrains is removed.
  2. Anti-Christ is revealed.
  3. Second coming takes place.

“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God, or that is worshiped; so that he as God sits in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now you know what withholds that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now lets will let, until he be taken out of the way.  And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:” – 2 Thessalonians 2:3-8

After walking through the Greek slowly word-by-word through the above two verses above highlighted with underlining and bold font, I rendered the following translation from the original Greek. In other words, I was checking to see if the Greek actually said the words in red above “he be taken out of the way” or if the translators were just adding the “he” for understanding which is standard translation procedures, and the answer was that they added the “he” to the sentence to help it make sense.  Knowing this, those two verses read like this:

“And now you perceive the restraining that he reveals in his time. For the mystery of the lawlessness already works; only this restrains now momentarily until out of the way becomes.”

In other words, this could mean that the restraining power of the Holy Spirit is taken out of the way (and many scholars do believe this to be true).  I would like to add one further note however. Since “he” is not in the original Greek, it reads “until out of the way becomes”.  This knowledge allows us to add another possible thought regarding this passage.  If the Holy Spirit is removed, could the Christians also be part of the restraining on earth?  Remember what Jesus said in Matthew 5?  If the salt loses its savor, it is good for nothing, and this seems to indicate that Christians are a type of salt that help to preserve society.  With the Holy Spirit and Christians removed, it would make sense that there would no longer be any restraining for Satan and his false messiah and false prophet to do their dirty deeds and delude the people of earth.  Also again, would GOD really remove the Holy Spirit from His people and leave them without the ‘Seal’ of their redemption?

In this above passage, I find one of the most convincing arguments for a rapture.  In many ways, I would imagine that if there is a “rapture”, then it would make sense that it would end what Paul the apostle called the “time of the Gentiles”.  Therefore, although there’s no hard evidence for a rapture, there is soft evidence (and not just in this passage alone). However, there’s no need to distort or warp passages like I Corinthians 15 or I Thessalonians 4:16-18 and turn them into ‘rapture’ passages when they’re obviously passages about the second physical return of Jesus to this earth at the end of the seven years.

Matthew 24 is also another passage about the second physical coming of Jesus that is typically used as a ‘rapture’ passage.  Although the entire chapter is fairly much speaking of the second physical return of Jesus, there is one spot in the chapter that could very well be an excellent indication of a rapture, but to my knowledge it has been overlooked by almost the entire community who believe in a ‘rapture’.  This ‘soft evidence’ is found in Matthew 24:38-39 which says:

“For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, And [the unbelieving wicked] knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.”

Notice it says that the coming of Jesus would be likened unto how the days of Noah were fairly normal with standard fare such as eating, drinking, marrying of people, and then suddenly like a flood the second physical return of Jesus will come.  So where’s the possible soft evidence for a ‘rapture’?  In the phrase “until the day that Noah entered the ark and [the unbelieving wicked] knew not until the flood came“. The flood will come suddenly to the surprise of the unbelieving wicked.

The entering of Noah into the ark did not come by surprise. Noah knew it was coming and was anticipating it.  The wicked didn’t even notice Noah entering the ark most likely since Noah and his family had probably come and gone from the ark many times.  In other words, Noah entered the ark while things were fairly normal and nobody really even noticed.  The sudden surprise came later. It wasn’t until the flood came suddenly that people were taken off-guard.

Sacrifices to Molech of the Baal sun worship religion, similar to the human sacrifices that took place on the festival of Dionysia around 500 B.C. or in more recent times during Saturnalia (X-Mass).

Here we see Noah’s entry into the ark as a possible metaphor for the Body of Christ and the Holy Spirit being taken into ‘the ark’ of heaven while the world barely notices.  That explains why Jesus’ second return is going to take everyone off-guard.  They will all think they’re doing GOD a favor by surrounding Israel and punishing them, especially with the ‘replacement theology’ sweeping through many congregations which seeks to deny Israel’s Biblical place in the future plan of GOD.  Many, if not, most today who call themselves ‘Christians’ are so far out in spiritual ‘outer space’ that they really have no idea how lost they truly are as they float in massive layers of heresy spoken by men like Tim Keller, John Piper, C.S. Lewis, Billy Graham, and many other false teachers as shown in detailed, documented evidence on this website.

Almost all of those claiming to be ‘believers’ today are playing the music of demons in their congregations, practicing charismatic spiritualism like shamans, dressing like naked savages in their communities, seeking entertainment with filthy, occult, and pagan material, drinking like fish, cursing like sailors, piercing themselves and defacing their bodies like heathen primitive tribes, while all the time talking about how a ‘revival’ is sweeping America.  Most of these people are well-described in the congregation of Laodicea found in Revelation 3 which GOD states He will ‘vomit out of His mouth’ metaphorically speaking. Will they even notice that the true believers are gone?  It’s very doubtful. Remember the great falling away that is to precede the revealing of the Anti-Christ.  I believe we are living in that era.  The Greek word ‘apostasia’ for ‘falling away’ is rooted in the Greek word ‘apostasion’ that means ‘divorce’.

With the amazing amount of heresy being touted in even ‘conservative’ or ‘fundamental’ congregations today, I really don’t think most people will even notice that believers are missing.

Love speaks TruthThis make sense that after the believers are gone like Noah into the ark that nobody else notices them missing, and the world celebrates their False Messiah, their False Prophet, along with their false grace, false peace, false love, false worship, false godliness, false brethren, false version of Christianity, and false one world religion under the reign of Satan.  Then sudden tribulation will come upon them like labor upon a woman.  They will surround Israel and will quite possibly blame them for all of their problems. Then Jesus will appear in heaven with His saints.  I really don’t think the false believers in most congregations and the rest of the world will be expecting this to happen. The remainder of Matthew 24 even seems to preach this message. Since the False Messiah is indeed both ‘against’ and a ‘substitute’ for the true Christ, it would be no surprise if the world believes they are doing GOD a favor by rooting the Jews out of Israel, much like many Catholics for over a millennia acted as if they were doing GOD a favor by killing Jews and true Christians. Prepare for a possible similar type of world in the near future.

It will be like 1 Thessalonians 5 says – a surprise like a thief in the night to the unbelievers who just might be horrified that their ‘good works’ aren’t so righteous, their love, grace, and religion isn’t genuine, and that they only have a form of godliness, but are denying its true power.  However, the true believers will not be taken by surprise as 1 Thessalonians 5 also says, and if they are already taken away with the Holy Spirit, this makes perfect sense.  I believe II Thessalonians might possibly be the closest passage to giving us the exact order of what prerequisites and events need to occur and when.  The rapture, the Anti-Christ revealed, and then the surprise second coming of Jesus that the self-righteous world didn’t expect with all their false world peace and celebration of demonic activity in the name of piety.

POSSIBLE TIMINGS FOR THE RAPTURE AND END TIME EVENTS

Could the rapture take place at Pentecost or at least in the summer time?  Song of Solomon chapter 2 states:

“The voice of my beloved! behold, he comes leaping upon the mountains, skipping upon the hills. My beloved is like a roe or a young hart: behold, he stands behind our wall, he looks forth at the windows, shewing himself through the lattice. My beloved spake, and said unto me, Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away. For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone; The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land; The fig tree puts forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grape give a good smell. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away. O my dove, that art in the clefts of the rock, in the secret places of the stairs, let me see thy countenance, let me hear thy voice; for sweet is thy voice, and thy countenance is comely.” – Solomon’s Song of Songs 2:8-14

armageddon_valleyNotice the Groom in this love song is speaking to His Bride from up behind the lattice of His windows.  He is not descending to His Bride. He is asking her to come up to where He is.  We are also told the timing – summer.

The rains in Israel continue through around the end of April.  In this passage, the rains are ended and the tender grapes on the vines give a good smell.  This speaks of summertime.  Also, the Bride seems to be hiding in the clefts of the Rock and in the secret places of the stairs.  It makes one wonder if she is facing persecution.  Multiple times throughout the prophets of the Old Testament and in the writings of the New Testament, the fig tree is used as a metaphor for Israel.  In this passage, we see the fig tree is putting forth her green figs.  This leads one to wonder if it is speaking of a young Israel sprouting forth, not yet ripe as they will be at the end of the seven year period, but still a new nation if this symbolism applies. Did you know that this summer, Pentecost will take place on June the 12th right after the rains of Israel are ended and at the start of summer?  I am not setting dates, but I am suggesting a theory of a possible Pentecost date either now or in the future … but this is only speculation.

In the article at this link the timing of when the ‘time of the Gentiles’ will be fulfilled is discussed more in-depth. We must be careful with the assumption that ‘the time of the Gentiles’ and the trampling of Jerusalem coincide; however, I believe it’s possible that ‘time of the Gentiles’ could simply be related to the mystery of the ‘called out’ Body of Christ and their era, and not necessarily parallel with the trampling of Jerusalem by Gentiles. Let’s look at two passages of Scripture:

” … and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.” – Luke 21:24b

“But do not measure the court outside the temple; leave that out, for it is given over to the nations, and they will trample the holy city for forty-two months.”  Revelation 11:2

We have two elements here:  1) the ‘time of the Gentiles’ (which most surmise from Scripture to be the gap between the 483 years and the final 7 years of Daniel chapter 9’s 490 year prophecy), and 2) the treading of the Gentiles upon Jerusalem.  A quick glance at these passages would have someone placing the time of the Gentiles ending at the same time that Jerusalem is no longer trodden by Gentiles.  However, it could very well be that the time of the Gentiles may end a few years prior to the trampling of Jerusalem by the Gentiles being completed.  However, the reverse could not be true. Why?  Luke 21 denotes that the Gentiles will still be treading upon Jerusalem when the time of the Gentiles ends. Thus, the time of the Gentiles could end just prior to the final seven years of the Jews and Jerusalem restarting (from when they stopped at the Messiah’s crucifixion as the 483 years were completed).  And it also appears that while the ‘time of the Gentiles’ could end before the final seven years, on the other hand the treading of Jerusalem appears to end around halfway through those final seven years according to Revelation chapter 11.

The ‘time of the Gentiles’ appears to be a time when the ‘time of the Jews’ is not taking place. When is the ‘time of the Jews’?  Again, we point you to Daniel 9’s prophecy where we see that 490 years were prophesied concerning the Messiah’s tasks being completed for two important focuses: the Jews and Jerusalem. In fact, Daniel 9 is all about the Jews and Jerusalem and it is the main focus.  So we’re told by Daniel in that chapter that 490 years were appointed for them.  We perceive in this 490 year time-frame what appears to be three basic segments of time.  First, 49 years for the ordering of the rebuilding of Jerusalem and its completion right at the end of their 70 year Babylonian exile.  Secondly, 434 years from the completion of Jerusalem to the time that Messiah is cut off (the crucifixion).  The sum of these first two equals 483 years. Third, a final 7 years that would wrap up the total 490 years.  A gap occurred between the 483 years and the final 7 years simply because Israel rejected their Messiah. This is why the 490 year timeline was put on pause.  But it wasn’t a surprise to GOD.  He had already hinted at this mystery in the Old Testament about turning to the Gentiles for a time, and about Israel being scattered among the nations for many years (the Diaspora).  So when will the final 7 years start again? When the ‘time of the Gentiles’ are fulfilled.

While some may differ, I have found myself with the opinion that the ‘time of the Gentiles’ will end (i.e. with the ‘rapture’) prior to the final seven years of Daniel’s prophecy. With that in mind, let me give you my theory on some of the possible timing of the final years.

Prophetic Timeline2

Remember how Jesus ascended from the Mount of Olives and afterward the angels told his disciples that Jesus would return the same way that they saw him go.  We are also told in another passage in Zechariah 14 that the Messiah (Jesus) would descend upon the Mount of Olives and split it in half as He returns for the Battle of Armageddon at His second coming.  In this way, Jesus ascended from the Mount of Olives and He will descend someday upon the Mount of Olives.

Following this logic, think of the Holy Spirit.  He descended upon Pentecost.  Is it possible that He will ascend (taking the Bride of Christ with Him and ending the ‘time of the Gentiles’) on Pentecost as well?  What’s special about the Bible festivals? And how do they relate to prophecy?  Well, the first coming of Jesus was seen to be tied directly to the spring festivals of the Bible, so therefore it is possible that the fall festivals are related to the second coming of Jesus (since none of them appear to have been fulfilled by the first coming of Jesus). For example, the first coming of Jesus appears to have been related to Passover (the timing of Jesus’ death as the Passover Lamb), the Feast of First-Fruits (the timing of Jesus’ resurrection), and Pentecost (the timing of the Holy Spirit’s descent upon the Body of Christ).  The basic fall festivals of the Bible are:

  • 7th month Tishri – 1st day: The Feast of the Trumpets
  • 7th month Tishri – 10th day: The Day of Atonement
  • 7th month Tishri – 15th day: The Feast of the Tabernacles
  • 9th month Kislev – 24th day: The Feast of Dedication

Trumpets were used for warning, war, and music in the Old Testament.  Could the battles of Ezekiel occur on the Feast of Trumpets? Could the appearing of Jesus take place on the Feast of Trumpets as the final seventh trumpet of the Book of Revelation is blown?  It’s possible, and I admit it is speculation, but it is intriguing indeed.

When you think of the return of Jesus physically to the earth, think of how compassionate He is.  As he lands on the Mount of Olives and splits it into two halves, creating a valley between the two sides, keep in mind what the Scriptures say.  Jesus does not appear eager to shed blood in the Battle of Armageddon … not until He has made a plea to the nations.

“A noise shall come even to the ends of the earth; for the LORD hath a controversy with the nations, he will plead with all flesh; he will give them that are wicked to the sword, saith the LORD.” – Jeremiah 25:31

“I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land.” – Joel 3:2

10virgins-lamps

“Give me oil in my lamp, keep me burning. Keep me burning till the break of day.”

These are only possible timings and others may have their own theories, but there does seem to be a lot of history and possibilities in these scenarios of the fall festivals being a fulfillment of Jesus’ second coming.

However, there have been so many false prophets setting dates for the rapture that it has become a joke.  I do not want to sound like an alarmist as many of these false prophets who make filthy money from their books and TV shows; however, we are close, children of the Holy Father.  We are very close. Most of those calling themselves ‘Christians’ today look more like the children of Satan.  Remember the ten virgins? Only five were ready for the Wedding of Jesus the Groom and His Bride the Body of Christians.  If we think of Jewish Weddings, they often had a period of betrothal that began with a prayer, a giving of a token of value, followed by a betrothal period.  Then upon the completion of the betrothal period, the Groom would wed the Bride and have the Wedding Feast.

Wedding2If we think of salvation as beginning with the prayer of faith, whether verbal or unspoken, followed by the giving of a token, the Seal of the Holy Spirit, followed by a ‘betrothal’ period called the ‘Erusin’ by Jewish customs, then we see a connection between traditional Israeli weddings and how Jesus interacts with His Bride.  Keep in mind that “Erusin” (betrothal) literally meant ‘sanctification’ and was a time for the Bride to become sanctified as She prepared to be more like what the Groom desired.  That is much like the life of the Body of Christ throughout the past two millennia.  Then following this betrothal or period of sanctification, we see the Groom takes his Bride under the Tent for the wedding where He weds her.  This is the point where the foolish virgins (which appear akin to our modern ‘bridesmaids’) were not ready.  Half of them missed out on the Wedding and the Wedding Feast.  Yet they were still ‘virgins’ and not ‘harlots’, so some have proposed that this means only the faithful believers will be taken in the rapture as seen in the contrasting statements that Jesus made to the congregations of Sardis and Philadelphia.  Whether this theory is correct, I think it behooves all believers to be watching, because is that not exactly what Jesus said for us to do?

Vin-homeboy

Imagine that all the genuine Christians were taken out of this world by a ‘rapture’ tomorrow.  Many of these true believers pursue holiness like the Messiah instead of this present world.  Many of these true believers still trust Jesus for salvation and not their own works.  So let’s be honest – true believers would probably not even be missed.

Most church-goers today attend out of tradition, trust their own works, assimilate the pagans around them, and would probably be thankful to no longer have to see Bible verses and spiritual comments on their Facebook or Twitter stream from true believers. They could then feel comfortable with their Harry Potter, Charmed, Priest, and other occult shows. They could enjoy their heretics who teach work salvation, false grace, and pagan assimilation without being pricked in their conscience.  They could act like a Baal worshiper in their music, dress, holidays, entertainment, and lifestyle without rebuke.  They could follow a false prophet like the Pope with the rest of the world into an era of false world peace, while worshiping a false messiah who pretends he is ‘GOD’, and he’ll probably look a lot like what most people would desire for their ‘god’ – someone who gives them whatever their flesh craves.   I think the world is ready for deception.   Even so come, LORD Jesus!

 

TRIBULATION: Coming soon

Evolutionists who seek to create trans-human creatures should keep in mind the special creatures that GOD will use to punish all those who reject GOD someday.  Their most frightening trans-human will not compare to the creatures GOD will unleash in the tribulation period.

Evolutionists who seek to create trans-human creatures should keep in mind the special creatures that GOD will use to punish all those who reject GOD someday. Their most frightening imagined trans-human will not compare to the creatures GOD will unleash in the tribulation period. I say “imagined” trans-humans since evolutionists continue to fail to produce one in their quest to create their own so-called “proof” – “proof” they could sneak and bury in the ground and pretend to “discover” since their fossil record “proof” and other “proofs” are an all-time fail status right now, much like many of their first “proofs” (i.e. Piltdown Man) that were all found to be frauds. Is it not fitting that GOD will use strange-looking creatures to punish them someday?

Many people are aware that we appear closer to “the end” and to the “final seven years of Daniel” than in any time in history. Therefore, I wanted to remind us all of the judgments and horrific pain that will be inflicted by GOD upon mankind for their evil. Notice how the judgments are almost like a fireworks display in that they seem to get worse and worse and then climax at the end with the worst judgments. At the same time, note that these judgments are listed as they appear in the Bible, but they may not necessarily take place in that order and may actually even overlap with one another.  This upcoming time in history is not a pleasant time and this provides an overview of the major judgments that take place during these seven years.  The Bible says:

“And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.”  – Matthew 24:22

Seven TrumpetsSEVEN TRUMPET JUDGMENTS

  • First trumpet
    • Upon the first trumpet sound, hail and fire, mixed with blood, is thrown to the Earth burning up a third of the trees on the planet, and all green grass.
  • Second trumpet
    • By the second trumpet sounding, it cues something like a great burning mountain that plunges into the sea and wipes out a third of all sea life and ships. A third of the oceans will become blood. (Revelation 8:8-9)
  • ArmageddonThird trumpet
    • By the sound of the third trumpet, a great star called Wormwood falls to the Earth poisoning a third of the planet’s freshwater sources, such as rivers and springs. Men will die from drinking its bitter taste. (Revelation 8:10-11)
  • Fourth trumpet
    • Following the sounding of the fourth trumpet, a third of the light that shines from the Sun, moon and stars became dark from these celestial bodies being “struck”. This catastrophe caused complete darkness for a third of a day, during the day, even through night hours.(Revelation 8:12)
  • Fifth trumpet
    • The fifth trumpet sound is the “first Woe” of three. Before this trumpet sounds, an angel appears, flying in mid-heaven, and warns, “Woe, woe, woe, to those who dwell on the earth, because of the remaining blasts of the trumpet of the three angels who are about to sound!”
    • locustsThe fifth trumpet prompts a personified star to fall from heaven. The star is given the key to the bottomless pit. After opening it, the smoke that rises out, darkens the air and blocks the sunlight. Then from out of the smoke, the Locusts were unleashed. They were scorpion tailed warhorses, having a man’s face with lion’s teeth. Their hair was long like that of a woman’s and flew with locust-like wings. They were crowned with golden crowns and protected with iron-like breastplates. They were commanded by their king, Abaddon, to torment any man who does not have the seal of God on their forehead, by using their scorpion-like tails. It was also made clear to them that they must not kill anyone during their five-month mission of torment. (Revelation 9:1-12)
  • su4f7aec79Sixth trumpet
    • Five months after the fifth trumpet blast, the sixth one sounds. This is the “Second woe”, where four angels are released from their binds to the “great river Euphrates”. They command a brute force of 200 million mounted troops whose horses dissipate plague from out of their mouths, most notably: fire, smoke, and brimstone. The mounted horsemen wore breastplates with the color of fire, hyacinth, and brimstone. The horses had a lion’s head and their tails were like a serpent, even with a snake head. They are responsible for the deaths of a third of mankind who are stricken by the plague that emanated from these armies. (Revelation 9:13-21)
  • marriagesupper21Seventh trumpet
    • The sound of the seventh trumpet signals the “Third woe”. This is the final trumpet sound and the final woe. Loud voices in heaven proclaim Christ as ruler forever and ever under the “Kingdom of our Lord”. Thanks is given to God, the Almighty and praise for the wrath that came, the dead who were judged, and the bond-servants rewarded. The temple of God in heaven then opened and the Ark of the covenant appeared in His temple. Then lightning and peals of thunder occurred followed by an earthquake and a great hailstorm.

Seven Bowls of WrathSEVEN BOWL JUDGMENTS

First Bowl
When the first bowl is poured out, foul and painful sores come upon those bearing the mark of the beast and those who worshiped the image of the beast.

Second Bowl
When the second bowl is poured out, the seas and the oceans become blood as of a dead man, forcing everything in the sea to die.

Third Bowl
When the third bowl is poured out, the rivers and the remaining sources of water turn to blood. The angels then begin praising God’s holy judgments.

red10-4-web

They killed Christians and spilled their blood. GOD will return the favor with a “blood spill” which will ruin their water as it turns to blood like in Egypt long ago. It is fitting that they have blood to drink, since the occult seems to enjoy that anyway and since they were so “bloodthirsty” for Christian’s blood.

Fourth Bowl
When the fourth bowl is poured out, the sun causes a major heatwave to scorch the planet. The incorrigible wicked refuse to repent while they blaspheme the name of God.

Fifth Bowl
When the fifth bowl is poured out, a thick darkness overwhelms the kingdom of the beast. The wicked continue to stubbornly defame the name of God while refusing to repent and glorify God

Beach lovers joking about being sun-worshipers will not be joking when the sun is turned up so hot that men are literally scorched.

Sixth Bowl
When the sixth bowl is poured out, the great river Euphrates dries up so that the kings of the east might cross to be prepared to battle. Three unclean spirits with the appearance of frogs come out of the mouths of the beast and the false prophet. These demonic like spirits work Satanic miracles to gather the nations of the world to battle against the forces of good during the Battle of Armageddon. Jesus warns those still alive during the Tribulation that his coming will come like a thief in the night, urging his followers to stay alert.

Ice rocks (giant hailstones) weighing around 100 pounds will cause unimaginable damage and death.  Some ice rocks have been found weighing around seven pounds.  Just imagine what an entire sky full of one-hundred-pounders could do.

Seventh Bowl
When the seventh bowl is poured out, a global earthquake causes the cities of the world to collapse. Every mountain and island are removed from their foundations. Giant hailstones weighing nearly 100 pounds plummet onto the planet. The plagues were so severe that the wicked’s hatred against God intensifies while the incorrigible continue to curse God.


BATTLE OF ARMAGEDDON / JUDGMENT OF “BABYLON THE GREAT WHORE”

images“And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon. And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done. And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath. And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.”  Revelation 16:16-21

And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honor, and power, unto the Lord our God: For true and righteous are his judgments: for he hath judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand. And again they said, Alleluia. And her smoke rose up for ever and ever.”

And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of his mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treads the wine-press of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.”

“And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army. And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshiped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh. – Revelation 19:1-3, 11-21

MODERN ISRAEL: Scriptural prediction proven true

Present Day Israel

Present Day Israel

We live in the time of the end.  Israel has bloomed and gone from a desert wasteland to a thriving nation within the last sixty years miraculously as Ezekiel 36:30-38 below stated would happen.  Unlike today’s modern heretical “prophets” or “apostles”, the prophets of Scripture were held to the standard of GOD.  If what they prophesied didn’t come true, they were to be killed according to GOD’s Law.  Every single prophecy of the Bible has been fulfilled perfectly.  Examples can be seen at sites like the article and video at this link.  That’s quite a track record.  In 1948, the Jews returned to the land of Israel after almost two thousand years.  In doing so, they fulfilled the following prophecies of the Bible.  

800px-Arch_of_Titus_Menorah

Relief from the Arch of Titus in Rome depicting a menorah and other objects looted from the Temple of Jerusalem carried in a Roman triumph. After General Titus destroyed the Temple and conquered Jerusalem in A.D. 70, the Jews were dispersed throughout the world (called the Diaspora or Dispersion).

Ezekiel 11:14-20
“And the word of the LORD came to me: “Son of man, your brothers, even your brothers, your kinsmen, the whole house of Israel, all of them, are those of whom the inhabitants of Jerusalem have said, ‘Go far from the LORD; to us this land is given for a possession.’ Therefore say, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD: Though I removed them far off among the nations, and though I scattered them among the countries, yet I have been a sanctuary to them for a while in the countries where they have gone.’ Therefore say, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD: I will gather you from the peoples and assemble you out of the countries where you have been scattered, and I will give you the land of Israel.’ And when they come there, they will remove from it all its detestable things and all its abominations. And I will give them one heart, and a new spirit I will put within them. I will remove the heart of stone from their flesh and give them a heart of flesh, that they may walk in my statutes and keep my rules and obey them. And they shall be my people, and I will be their God.”

584259685Ezekiel 20:30-40
“Therefore say to the house of Israel, Thus says the Lord GOD: Will you defile yourselves after the manner of your fathers and go whoring after their detestable things? When you present your gifts and offer up your children in fire, you defile yourselves with all your idols to this day. And shall I be inquired of by you, O house of Israel? As I live, declares the Lord GOD, I will not be inquired of by you. “What is in your mind shall never happen–the thought, ‘Let us be like the nations, like the tribes of the countries, and worship wood and stone.’ “As I live, declares the Lord GOD, surely with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm and with wrath poured out I will be king over you. I will bring you out from the peoples and gather you out of the countries where you are scattered, with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm, and with wrath poured out. And I will bring you into the wilderness of the peoples, and there I will enter into judgment with you face to face. As I entered into judgment with your fathers in the wilderness of the land of Egypt, so I will enter into judgment with you, declares the Lord GOD. I will make you pass under the rod, and I will bring you into the bond of the covenant. I will purge out the rebels from among you, and those who transgress against me. I will bring them out of the land where they sojourn, but they shall not enter the land of Israel. Then you will know that I am the LORD. “As for you, O house of Israel, thus says the Lord GOD: Go serve every one of you his idols, now and hereafter, if you will not listen to me; but my holy name you shall no more profane with your gifts and your idols. “For on my holy mountain, the mountain height of Israel, declares the Lord GOD, there all the house of Israel, all of them, shall serve me in the land. There I will accept them, and there I will require your contributions and the choicest of your gifts, with all your sacred offerings.”

Ezekiel 28:25-35 
“Thus says the Lord GOD: When I gather the house of Israel from the peoples among whom they are scattered, and manifest my holiness in them in the sight of the nations, then they shall dwell in their own land that I gave to my servant Jacob. And they shall dwell securely in it, and they shall build houses and plant vineyards. They shall dwell securely, when I execute judgments upon all their neighbors who have treated them with contempt. Then they will know that I am the LORD their God.”

JewishDiasporaColor2000Ezekiel 34:4-30 
“The weak you have not strengthened, the sick you have not healed, the injured you have not bound up, the strayed you have not brought back, the lost you have not sought, and with force and harshness you have ruled them. So they were scattered, because there was no shepherd, and they became food for all the wild beasts. My sheep were scattered; they wandered over all the mountains and on every high hill. My sheep were scattered over all the face of the earth, with none to search or seek for them. “Therefore, you shepherds, hear the word of the LORD: As I live, declares the Lord GOD, surely because my sheep have become a prey, and my sheep have become food for all the wild beasts, since there was no shepherd, and because my shepherds have not searched for my sheep, but the shepherds have fed themselves, and have not fed my sheep, therefore, you shepherds, hear the word of the LORD: Thus says the Lord GOD, Behold, I am against the shepherds, and I will require my sheep at their hand and put a stop to their feeding the sheep. No longer shall the shepherds feed themselves. I will rescue my sheep from their mouths, that they may not be food for them. “For thus says the Lord GOD: Behold, I, I myself will search for my sheep and will seek them out. As a shepherd seeks out his flock when he is among his sheep that have been scattered, so will I seek out my sheep, and I will rescue them from all places where they have been scattered on a day of clouds and thick darkness. And I will bring them out from the peoples and gather them from the countries, and will bring them into their own land. And I will feed them on the mountains of Israel, by the ravines, and in all the inhabited places of the country. I will feed them with good pasture, and on the mountain heights of Israel shall be their grazing land. There they shall lie down in good grazing land, and on rich pasture they shall feed on the mountains of Israel. I myself will be the shepherd of my sheep, and I myself will make them lie down, declares the Lord GOD. I will seek the lost, and I will bring back the strayed, and I will bind up the injured, and I will strengthen the weak, and the fat and the strong I will destroy. I will feed them in justice. “As for you, my flock, thus says the Lord GOD: Behold, I judge between sheep and sheep, between rams and male goats. Is it not enough for you to feed on the good pasture, that you must tread down with your feet the rest of your pasture; and to drink of clear water, that you must muddy the rest of the water with your feet? And must my sheep eat what you have trodden with your feet, and drink what you have muddied with your feet? “Therefore, thus says the Lord GOD to them: Behold, I, I myself will judge between the fat sheep and the lean sheep. Because you push with side and shoulder, and thrust at all the weak with your horns, till you have scattered them abroad, I will rescue my flock; they shall no longer be a prey. And I will judge between sheep and sheep. And I will set up over them one shepherd, my servant David, and he shall feed them: he shall feed them and be their shepherd. And I, the LORD, will be their God, and my servant David shall be prince among them. I am the LORD; I have spoken. “I will make with them a covenant of peace and banish wild beasts from the land, so that they may dwell securely in the wilderness and sleep in the woods. And I will make them and the places all around my hill a blessing, and I will send down the showers in their season; they shall be showers of blessing. And the trees of the field shall yield their fruit, and the earth shall yield its increase, and they shall be secure in their land. And they shall know that I am the LORD, when I break the bars of their yoke, and deliver them from the hand of those who enslaved them. They shall no more be a prey to the nations, nor shall the beasts of the land devour them. They shall dwell securely, and none shall make them afraid. And I will provide for them renowned plantations so that they shall no more be consumed with hunger in the land, and no longer suffer the reproach of the nations. And they shall know that I am the LORD their God with them, and that they, the house of Israel, are my people, declares the Lord GOD.”

I scattered them among the nations, and they were dispersed through the countries. In accordance with their ways and their deeds I judged them. But when they came to the nations, wherever they came, they profaned my holy name, in that people said of them, ‘These are the people of the LORD, and yet they had to go out of his land.’ But I had concern for my holy name, which the house of Israel had profaned among the nations to which they came. “Therefore say to the house of Israel, Thus says the Lord GOD: It is not for your sake, O house of Israel, that I am about to act, but for the sake of my holy name, which you have profaned among the nations to which you came. And I will vindicate the holiness of my great name, which has been profaned among the nations, and which you have profaned among them. And the nations will know that I am the LORD, declares the Lord GOD, when through you I vindicate my holiness before their eyes. I will take you from the nations and gather you from all the countries and bring you into your own land.

I will make the fruit of the tree and the increase of the field abundant, that you may never again suffer the disgrace of famine among the nations. Then you will remember your evil ways, and your deeds that were not good, and you will loathe yourselves for your iniquities and your abominations. It is not for your sake that I will act, declares the Lord GOD; let that be known to you. Be ashamed and confounded for your ways, O house of Israel. “Thus says the Lord GOD: On the day that I cleanse you from all your iniquities, I will cause the cities to be inhabited, and the waste places shall be rebuilt. And the land that was desolate shall be tilled, instead of being the desolation that it was in the sight of all who passed by. And they will say, ‘This land that was desolate has become like the garden of Eden, and the waste and desolate and ruined cities are now fortified and inhabited.’ Then the nations that are left all around you shall know that I am the LORD; I have rebuilt the ruined places and replanted that which was desolate. I am the LORD; I have spoken, and I will do it. “Thus says the Lord GOD: This also I will let the house of Israel ask me to do for them: to increase their people like a flock. Like the flock for sacrifices, like the flock at Jerusalem during her appointed feasts, so shall the waste cities be filled with flocks of people. Then they will know that I am the LORD.”

Israel is bornEzekiel 37:12-28
“Therefore prophesy, and say to them, Thus says the Lord GOD: Behold, I will open your graves and raise you from your graves, O my people. And I will bring you into the land of Israel. And you shall know that I am the LORD, when I open your graves, and raise you from your graves, O my people. And I will put my Spirit within you, and you shall live, and I will place you in your own land. Then you shall know that I am the LORD; I have spoken, and I will do it, declares the LORD.” The word of the LORD came to me: “Son of man, take a stick and write on it, ‘For Judah, and the people of Israel associated with him’; then take another stick and write on it, ‘For Joseph (the stick of Ephraim) and all the house of Israel associated with him.’ And join them one to another into one stick, that they may become one in your hand. And when your people say to you, ‘Will you not tell us what you mean by these?’ say to them, Thus says the Lord GOD: Behold, I am about to take the stick of Joseph (that is in the hand of Ephraim) and the tribes of Israel associated with him. And I will join with it the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, that they may be one in my hand. When the sticks on which you write are in your hand before their eyes, then say to them, Thus says the Lord GOD: Behold, I will take the people of Israel from the nations among which they have gone, and will gather them from all around, and bring them to their own land. And I will make them one nation in the land, on the mountains of Israel. And one king shall be king over them all, and they shall be no longer two nations, and no longer divided into two kingdoms. They shall not defile themselves anymore with their idols and their detestable things, or with any of their transgressions. But I will save them from all the backsliding in which they have sinned, and will cleanse them; and they shall be my people, and I will be their God. “My servant David shall be king over them, and they shall all have one shepherd. They shall walk in my rules and be careful to obey my statutes. They shall dwell in the land that I gave to my servant Jacob, where your fathers lived. They and their children and their children’s children shall dwell there forever, and David my servant shall be their prince forever. I will make a covenant of peace with them. It shall be an everlasting covenant with them. And I will set them in their land and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in their midst forevermore. My dwelling place shall be with them, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Then the nations will know that I am the LORD who sanctifies Israel, when my sanctuary is in their midst forevermore.”

“When I have brought them back from the peoples and gathered them from their enemies’ lands, and through them have vindicated my holiness in the sight of many nations. Then they shall know that I am the LORD their God, because I sent them into exile among the nations and then assembled them into their own land. I will leave none of them remaining among the nations anymore. And I will not hide my face anymore from them, when I pour out my Spirit upon the house of Israel, declares the Lord GOD.” 

Israel is born3Zechariah 7:13-20 
“Therefore it is come to pass, that as he cried, and they would not hear; so they cried, and I would not hear, saith the LORD of hosts: But I scattered them with a whirlwind among all the nations whom they knew not. Thus the land was desolate after them, that no man passed through nor returned: for they laid the pleasant land desolate. Again the word of the LORD of hosts came to me, saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; I was jealous for Zion with great jealousy, and I was jealous for her with great fury. Thus saith the LORD; I am returned unto Zion, and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: and Jerusalem shall be called a city of truth; and the mountain of the LORD of hosts the holy mountain. Thus saith the LORD of hosts; There shall yet old men and old women dwell in the streets of Jerusalem, and every man with his staff in his hand for very age. And the streets of the city shall be full of boys and girls playing in the streets thereof. Thus saith the LORD of hosts; If it be marvelous in the eyes of the remnant of this people in these days, should it also be marvelous in mine eyes? saith the LORD of hosts. Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Behold, I will save my people from the east country, and from the west country; And I will bring them, and they shall dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God, in truth and in righteousness. Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Let your hands be strong, ye that hear in these days these words by the mouth of the prophets, which were in the day that the foundation of the house of the LORD of hosts was laid, that the temple might be built. For before these days there was no hire for man, nor any hire for beast; neither was there any peace to him that went out or came in because of the affliction: for I set all men every one against his neighbor. But now I will not be unto the residue of this people as in the former days, saith the LORD of hosts. For the seed shall be prosperous; the vine shall give her fruit, and the ground shall give her increase, and the heavens shall give their dew; and I will cause the remnant of this people to possess all these things. And it shall come to pass, that as ye were a curse among the heathen, O house of Judah, and house of Israel; so will I save you, and ye shall be a blessing: fear not, but let your hands be strong. For thus saith the LORD of hosts; As I thought to punish you, when your fathers provoked me to wrath, saith the LORD of hosts, and I repented not: So again have I thought in these days to do well unto Jerusalem and to the house of Judah: fear ye not. These are the things that ye shall do; Speak ye every man the truth to his neighbor; execute the judgment of truth and peace in your gates: And let none of you imagine evil in your hearts against his neighbor; and love no false oath: for all these are things that I hate, saith the LORD. And the word of the LORD of hosts came unto me, saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; The fast of the fourth month, and the fast of the fifth, and the fast of the seventh, and the fast of the tenth, shall be to the house of Judah joy and gladness, and cheerful feasts; therefore love the truth and peace. Thus saith the LORD of hosts; It shall yet come to pass, that there shall come people, and the inhabitants of many cities: And the inhabitants of one city shall go to another, saying, Let us go speedily to pray before the LORD, and to seek the LORD of hosts: I will go also. Yea, many people and strong nations shall come to seek the LORD of hosts in Jerusalem, and to pray before the LORD. Thus saith the LORD of hosts; In those days it shall come to pass, that ten men shall take hold out of all languages of the nations, even shall take hold of the skirt of him that is a Jew, saying, We will go with you: for we have heard that God is with you.”

Israel is born4Joel 2:16-21
“Gather the people. Consecrate the congregation; assemble the elders; gather the children, even nursing infants. Let the bridegroom leave his room, and the bride her chamber. Between the vestibule and the altar let the priests, the ministers of the LORD, weep and say, “Spare your people, O LORD, and make not your heritage a reproach, a byword among the nations. Why should they say among the peoples, ‘Where is their God?'” Then the LORD became jealous for his land and had pity on his people. The LORD answered and said to his people, “Behold, I am sending to you grain, wine, and oil, and you will be satisfied; and I will no more make you a reproach among the nations. “I will remove the northerner far from you, and drive him into a parched and desolate land, his vanguard into the eastern sea, and his rear guard into the western sea; the stench and foul smell of him will rise, for he has done great things. “Fear not, O land; be glad and rejoice, for the LORD has done great things!”

Israel is born5Hosea 6:1-3
“Come, let us return to the LORD; for he has torn us, that he may heal us; he has struck us down, and he will bind us up. After two days he will revive us; on the third day he will raise us up, that we may live before him. Let us know; let us press on to know the LORD; his going out is sure as the dawn; he will come to us as the showers, as the spring rains that water the earth.”

Israel is born6Jeremiah 23:7-9 
“Therefore, behold, the days are coming, declares the LORD, when they shall no longer say, ‘As the LORD lives who brought up the people of Israel out of the land of Egypt,’ but ‘As the LORD lives who brought up and led the offspring of the house of Israel out of the north country and out of all the countries where he had driven them.’ Then they shall dwell in their own land.” Concerning the prophets: My heart is broken within me; all my bones shake; I am like a drunken man, like a man overcome by wine, because of the LORD and because of his holy words.”

Israel is born7Jeremiah 30:1-11
“The word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD: “Thus says the LORD, the God of Israel: Write in a book all the words that I have spoken to you. For behold, days are coming, declares the LORD, when I will restore the fortunes of my people, Israel and Judah, says the LORD, and I will bring them back to the land that I gave to their fathers, and they shall take possession of it.” These are the words that the LORD spoke concerning Israel and Judah: “Thus says the LORD: We have heard a cry of panic, of terror, and no peace. Ask now, and see, can a man bear a child? Why then do I see every man with his hands on his stomach like a woman in labor? Why has every face turned pale? Alas! That day is so great there is none like it; it is a time of distress for Jacob; yet he shall be saved out of it. “And it shall come to pass in that day, declares the LORD of hosts, that I will break his yoke from off your neck, and I will burst your bonds, and foreigners shall no more make a servant of him. But they shall serve the LORD their God and David their king, whom I will raise up for them. “Then fear not, O Jacob my servant, declares the LORD, nor be dismayed, O Israel; for behold, I will save you from far away, and your offspring from the land of their captivity. Jacob shall return and have quiet and ease, and none shall make him afraid. For I am with you to save you, declares the LORD; I will make a full end of all the nations among whom I scattered you, but of you I will not make a full end. I will discipline you in just measure, and I will by no means leave you unpunished.”

“Behold, I will gather them from all the countries to which I drove them in my anger and my wrath and in great indignation. I will bring them back to this place, and I will make them dwell in safety. And they shall be my people, and I will be their God. I will give them one heart and one way, that they may fear me forever, for their own good and the good of their children after them. I will make with them an everlasting covenant, that I will not turn away from doing good to them. And I will put the fear of me in their hearts, that they may not turn from me. I will rejoice in doing them good, and I will plant them in this land in faithfulness, with all my heart and all my soul.”

Israel is born8Amos 9:14-15 
“I will restore the fortunes of my people Israel, and they shall rebuild the ruined cities and inhabit them; they shall plant vineyards and drink their wine, and they shall make gardens and eat their fruit. I will plant them on their land, and they shall never again be uprooted out of the land that I have given them,” says the LORD your God.”

Israel is born10Zechariah 2:10-13 
“Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion, for behold, I come and I will dwell in your midst, declares the LORD. And many nations shall join themselves to the LORD in that day, and shall be my people. And I will dwell in your midst, and you shall know that the LORD of hosts has sent me to you. And the LORD will inherit Judah as his portion in the holy land, and will again choose Jerusalem.” Be silent, all flesh, before the LORD, for he has roused himself from his holy dwelling.”

EzekielsIsraeliSatelliteMapmInMillenniumIf you want to see how Israel is going to look after the time of the Gentiles has ended and when GOD rules and reigns over them for a thousand years, the following passage gives the details of her future borders.  I have no doubt that Israel’s enemies who surround her, as well as the GOD-haters, atheists, and “far left” will not be too pleased to learn that not only will Israel own the “West Bank”, the “Gaza Strip”, and all of Jerusalem, but far more property than just those areas.

Ezekiel 47
“Then he brought me out by way of the north gate and led me around on the outside to the outer gate that faces toward the east; and behold, the water was trickling out on the south side. Going on eastward with a measuring line in his hand, the man measured a thousand cubits, and then led me through the water, and it was ankle-deep. Again he measured a thousand, and led me through the water, and it was knee-deep. Again he measured a thousand, and led me through the water, and it was waist-deep. Again he measured a thousand, and it was a river that I could not pass through, for the water had risen. It was deep enough to swim in, a river that could not be passed through. And he said to me, “Son of man, have you seen this?” Then he led me back to the bank of the river. As I went back, I saw on the bank of the river very many trees on the one side and on the other. And he said to me, “This water flows toward the eastern region and goes down into the Arabah, and enters the sea; when the water flows into the sea, the water will become fresh. And wherever the river goes, every living creature that swarms will live, and there will be very many fish. For this water goes there, that the waters of the sea may become fresh; so everything will live where the river goes. Fishermen will stand beside the sea. From Engedi to Eneglaim it will be a place for the spreading of nets. Its fish will be of very many kinds, like the fish of the Great Sea. But its swamps and marshes will not become fresh; they are to be left for salt. And on the banks, on both sides of the river, there will grow all kinds of trees for food. Their leaves will not wither, nor their fruit fail, but they will bear fresh fruit every month, because the water for them flows from the sanctuary. Their fruit will be for food, and their leaves for healing.” Thus says the Lord GOD: “This is the boundary by which you shall divide the land for inheritance among the twelve tribes of Israel. Joseph shall have two portions. And you shall divide equally what I swore to give to your fathers. This land shall fall to you as your inheritance. “This shall be the boundary of the land: On the north side, from the Great Sea by way of Hethlon to Lebo-hamath, and on to Zedad, Berothah, Sibraim (which lies on the border between Damascus and Hamath), as far as Hazer-hatticon, which is on the border of Hauran. So the boundary shall run from the sea to Hazar-enan, which is on the northern border of Damascus, with the border of Hamath to the north. This shall be the north side. “On the east side, the boundary shall run between Hauran and Damascus; along the Jordan between Gilead and the land of Israel; to the eastern sea and as far as Tamar. This shall be the east side. “On the south side, it shall run from Tamar as far as the waters of Meribah-kadesh, from there along the Brook of Egypt to the Great Sea. This shall be the south side. “On the west side, the Great Sea shall be the boundary to a point opposite Lebo-hamath. This shall be the west side. “So you shall divide this land among you according to the tribes of Israel. You shall allot it as an inheritance for yourselves and for the sojourners who reside among you and have had children among you. They shall be to you as native-born children of Israel. With you they shall be allotted an inheritance among the tribes of Israel. In whatever tribe the sojourner resides, there you shall assign him his inheritance, declares the Lord GOD.”

SATANIC: Cover stories?

The Satanic “Puppet Masters”, like master intelligence officers, appear to be getting their “cover stories” all ready for the end of time.

  • The rapture “cover story” could well be alien abduction.
  • The “cover story” for when the sun burns men could be global warming.
  • The “cover story” for other natural disasters could be HAARP.
  • The “cover story” for the Wormwood star? Could it be Planet X Nibiru?
  • The “cover story” for the Roman beast’s global work might be to blame “token” Jews who they’ve set up for the fall, which might lead the world armies to surround Jerusalem …
  • The “cover story” for how the Roman False Messiah ‘saved the world’ could be to pretend that the Battle of Ezekiel (shown in Ezekiel 38 and 39, and which the Bible seems to indicate will take place at the beginning of the seven years of Daniel’s prophecy) is actually the Battle of Armageddon (which is seen in Revelation 19 and other passages and which the Bible seems to indicate will take place at the end of the seven year period); thereby, if his False Messiah takes credit for what GOD is going to do in the Battle of Ezekiel, he would claim GOD’s glory for himself and would look like a Messiah to the world.  Also, vultures are seen to be feasting on bodies in both Battles.  This is an easy ‘cover story’ for Satan, so look for it.
  • The “cover” for the fall of ‘Babylon’ just might be the United States. Since ‘Babylon’ is a “city” in Revelation, it is interesting how JFK and Reagan both emphasized the wording “a shining city set upon a hill” to refer to the United States.   Perhaps it was just a coincidence, but Reagan gave the Vatican their first embassy in history and JFK was the first Catholic U.S. President in history.  Since America does not rest upon seven hills and is not truly a city, I find the United States to be an unlikely candidate for the qualifications of that great city ‘Babylon’ which is pictured as a woman who the Dragon (Roman Empire) will burn with fire.  Babylon, the actual city in Iraq, is also an unlikely candidate since it also doesn’t rest on seven hills.  Rome, on the other hand, is both a city and rests upon seven hills.  It is natural that Vatican City would rather the U.S. be ‘Babylon’, because they could have a False Christ step forward to “save the day”.  However, whether or not this happens, I would imagine they (Vatican City) are the more likely candidate and will go down in flames after America; that is, once the Dragon has finished using Vatican City for their own means. Americans should not rest easy, especially when Obama, who has all the appearances of a Roman agent as shown elsewhere in this website, has had access to top security levels of American security precautions, military, and nuclear power.
  • The “cover story” for how “the ‘false messiah‘ comes before the ‘true messiah'” could be as follows.  Satan could make an Islamic leader look like “the beast” who attacks the United States; thus, with such a setup, a Roman emperor could play the “hero” and rescue the world from “the beast”.  In reality, Daniel 9 is very clear that a Roman emperor will be “the beast” (and Daniel 2 and Daniel 7 say the beast’s kingdom will be the Romans).

Those who attempt to deny the Roman element of the final pagan messiah of Revelation oftentimes use statistics, rationalism, fear, and twisted Bible verses to prove their point. However, they cannot change the fact that the pagan messiah is going to be a Roman as stated very clearly in the Book of Daniel chapter nine verses twenty-six and twenty-seven.  In verse twenty-six, we are told that the ‘prince’ to come will be of the people who destroyed the sanctuary and city of the Jews.  History tells us that the Romans did that very thing in A.D. 70.  Unless they plan to revise the ancient history of their conquest of the Temple and Jerusalem in A.D. 70 (which they would probably love to do), then those who deny the Roman nature of the Final Beastly Ruler had best accept the fact that the false messiah cannot be manipulated into being another nationality.   Could he be both Roman and Muslim?  We have yet to see, but to deny the Roman element, which many of these pseudo-prophets do in their pseudo-prophetic ministries, is to attempt to replace the plain facts of Holy Scripture with man-made stats and rationalism.   Regardless of how many “cover stories” are created by Satan …

… GOD is going to blow all his covers off and leave him standing quite embarrassed in the end.

Jesus Christ will annihilate Satan and his global forces at the Battle of Armageddon while protecting Israel and destroying Satan’s pack of lies.  Get ready, world!  Israel is back in the land, the world is focused upon Jerusalem as the Bible predicted would happen in Ezekiel and Zechariah, Rome is on the rise as seen in the article at this link, Rome has almost ultimate temporal, material power as seen in the article at this link, the Knights are moving events in place to blame Israel, Russia and her allies are almost in place as predicted by Ezekiel 38 and 39 as seen here and here, and even more interesting events are transpiring as seen in the article on the Temple Mount at this link and in the video of this Jewish preacher sharing GOD’s Truth at this link.

HURRICANE SANDY: Tip of the iceberg?

Is Hurricane Sandy only just the tip of the iceberg?  Also, is it only an economic impact? Should we not also think of the toll it may take on human lives?  Far more importantly, what is the spiritual message that our nation and news media are taking away from all of this? Anything? Nothing?

Everyone from the Pope to evangelicals to Bollywood were praying for this storm and the people involved, but is GOD listening? What if GOD is the One who is behind Hurricane Sandy and what if He is very angry … especially with some of those praying, including the evangelicals? Even with the fundamentalist Christians?  Is that possible?  Is it possible that He could be rising from His Throne, full of wrath, with a vendetta against our nation?  Or is this nation too holy and righteous for judgment?  Are the evangelical and even fundamentalist Christians so holy that GOD would never move upon this land? Or does He notice that most of their pastors are viewing pornography on a regular basis? Does He see the hearts of pastors who make compromises with the Word He has spoken in order to gain a larger salary and more favor from their adherents?  Does He notice how self-absorbed their congregants are, never sharing their faith, but instead absorbing occult and sexual entertainment? Does it anger Him to see so many pastors and congregations throughout our nation who find materialism and adultery to be acceptable sins? And if these more pious members in our country are making Him angry, is it possible that the less pious could be so much more “fuel on the fire” of His wrath?

Washington, D.C. is at a standstill from Hurricane Sandy with only eight days until Election 2012 is to take place.  This election consists of two men who do not know the GOD of our founding fathers, the Pilgrims and Puritans, and nobody really seems to care.   Just last year, Washington, D.C. suffered from an earthquake tremor, and nobody seemed to get the message. Is this nation really this incorrigible?  Meanwhile, the cancellations of crass entertainment events across the east continue to mount almost as high as the waves on the east coast.  Have Americans wondered if GOD is not pleased with the trashy entertainment they enjoy?  I doubt it.  Are American Christians even having such thoughts? I highly doubt it.  Are even strict, conservative Christians having such thoughts? Perhaps? Some of them? Nowadays, who really knows. After all, everyone is busy with paying off their latest gadgets and “good times”. Little time exists for self-reflection … and as for  thoughts of GOD, they are non-existent, or at best, few and far between for most. I hear the talk of warm blankets, grace, financial aid, and prayer, which are all good, but where is the preaching of repentance?

Is it possible that when people talk about praying that it is just so many words? Or if they do pray that they think it is some sort of service they can render to GOD as payment for all the immorality and sexual vices that fill their day-to-day lives?  Is it possible when they render “prayer” and “charity” for victims that they see it as a way to indebt the Almighty in order to gain some more credits to use in their daily pursuit of wantonness and excessive self-pleasure, materialism, and lust? Where is the preaching of repentance in connection with this disaster? Are warm blankets, financial aid, and talk of grace all that is needed?

New Orleans was hit twice by hurricanes, Washington, D.C. suffered an earthquake last year and is currently at a standstill, and now Atlantic City and New York City are bracing for incredible devastation from Hurricane Sandy.  Ironically, New Orleans, New York City, Atlantic City, and Washington, D.C. are considered some of the most sinful cities in America by Forbes magazine and Wikipedia.

Are American Christians noticing this pattern? Or is anyone really even “getting” the message? Or are they pretending that GOD’s hand is not being shown and that He has nothing to do with these disasters?  Are they heaping to themselves soft-spoken ministers of “light” with soft hands, soft robes, and soft spines to speak “soft, sweet nothings”?

“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears …”  – 2 Timothy 4:3

While our first thought should be of the victims and how to help them during these disasters, our second thought should be of how far we have strayed from GOD.  The standard approach of most Christian leaders of most denominations, however, is to focus on that “first thought” without any mention of the “second thought” … and perhaps not even a thought of it.  Most of these religious individuals even state that GOD has nothing to do with such natural disasters.  They are almost Deist in their view of GOD.  There is no talk of repentance, but only the “good news” and “grace” available to everyone.  Sadly, when they say “good news” and “grace”, they speak of a gospel and grace that man has crafted which does not demand repentance.  They are not speaking of the Good News and grace of GOD which demand repentant faith and GOD’s ownership of our lives (“we are bought with a price” and GOD has expectations).

Does GOD have anything to do with these disasters? Apparently not if you listen to the media or even most religious leaders. What does the Bible say? Is it possible that a loving GOD could send a Flood upon a planet or fire and brimstone upon a town?  And if He has done it before, would He do it again?

But I will kindle a fire in the wall of Rabbah, And it shall devour its palaces, Amid shouting in the day of battle, and a tempest in the day of the whirlwind. Their king shall go into captivity, He and his princes together,” Says the LORD.”  – Amos 1:14-15

The LORD is slow to anger and great in power, and the LORD will by no means clear the guilty. His way is in whirlwind and storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet.”  – Nahum 1:3

“Out of the south comes the whirlwind: … And it is turned round about by his counsels: that they may do whatsoever he commands them upon the face of the world in the earth. He causes it to come, whether for correction, or for his land, or for mercy.”  – Job 37:9-13

Because I have called, and you refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded; Because you disdained all my counsel, and would have none of my reproof: I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear comes When your fear comes as desolation, and your destruction comes as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish comes upon you. Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me: For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD: They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof. Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices. For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them. But whoso hearkens unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil.” – Proverbs 1:24-33

“It is he that sits upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretches out the heavens as a curtain, and spreads them out as a tent to dwell in: Who brings the princes to nothing; He makes the judges of the earth as vanity. Yea, they shall not be planted; yea, they shall not be sown: yea, their stock shall not take root in the earth: and he shall also blow upon them, and they shall wither, and the whirlwind shall take them away as stubble.”  – Isaiah 40:22-24

GOD’s use of whirlwinds are especially prophesied in relation to the latter days after Israel is brought out of captivity into her land. 

“Behold, a whirlwind of the LORD has gone forth in fury – a violent whirlwind! It will fall violently on the head of the wicked. The anger of the LORD will not turn back until He has executed and performed the thoughts of His heart. In the latter days you will understand it perfectly.”  – Jeremiah 23:19

“Thus says the LORD of hosts: “Behold, disaster shall go forth from nation to nation, And a great whirlwind shall be raised up from the farthest parts of the earth. And at that day the slain of the LORD shall be from one end of the earth even to the other end of the earth. They shall not be lamented, or gathered, or buried; they shall become refuse on the ground.”  Jeremiah 25:32-33

“Thus says the LORD: ‘Behold, I will bring back the captivity of Jacob’s tents, And have mercy on his dwelling places; The city shall be built upon its own mound, And the palace shall remain according to its own plan. Then out of them shall proceed thanksgiving And the voice of those who make merry; I will multiply them, and they shall not diminish; I will also glorify them, and they shall not be small. Their children also shall be as before, And their congregation shall be established before Me; And I will punish all who oppress them. Their nobles shall be from among them, And their governor shall come from their midst; Then I will cause him to draw near, And he shall approach Me; For who is this who pledged his heart to approach Me?’ says the LORD. ‘You shall be My people, And I will be your God.’  Behold, the whirlwind of the LORD goes forth with fury, A continuing whirlwind; It will fall violently on the head of the wicked. The fierce anger of the LORD will not return until He has done it, And until He has performed the intents of His heart. In the latter days you will consider it.”  Jeremiah 30:18-24

“I will sweep away man and beast; I will sweep away the birds of the heavens and the fish of the sea, and the rubble with the wicked. I will cut off mankind from the face of the earth,” declares the LORD.”  Zephaniah 1:3

“Our God approaches, and he is not silent. Fire devours before Him, and a great storm rages around him. He shall call to the heavens from above, and to the earth, that he may judge his people.” Psalm 50:3-4

Has GOD changed?  Or is it just more convenient to preach the Good News of grace and forget the rest of the Bible?

No Repentance, No Recovery

“Repent or sink” seems to be the message to the American church. It’s their watch and their choice. Their prayers won’t save them unless they repent.

Remember that old cowboy phrase “Save your prayers”.  That seems to be the message that the American church keeps failing to hear with each natural disaster that pounds this country.

The American church ridicules separation as “a different era” and holiness as a “cultural thing” in order to avoid repentance, but they do so under the guise of “reaching the lost”. For their hypocritical rationalism, they will find themselves “reaching people”, but to a false “christianity” of their own making.

An American church that refuses to repent can also expect nothing with their prayer for our nation. Rationalism won’t save them. American Christians must stop their emulation of the lost world or lose their country.

Their time appears to be running out.

OBAMA AGREES WITH ISRAEL: Sign of the Times?

Defense News reported from Jerusalem this past summer that Obama made an agreement with Israel to assist them with their security.  What does this mean? Remember the Bible says the final False Messiah will break his covenant with many and some think that this covenant might be an agreement with Israel.  However, the covenant mentioned in the above article is not a covenant with many. Also, the Bible states that if it were possible even the elect could be seduced by the False Messiah.  Obama does not appear to be duping or seducing Americans, much less the elect, so I really don’t see Obama coming close to fooling the elect.  However, I believe it is possible that the False Messiah might point to someone like Obama as a “false messiah”. Keep in mind that everyone is looking for the False Messiah to come first and then the true Messiah. Thus, do you not think that Satan is smart enough to create his own “false messiah” before he brings his “true” messiah (the False Messiah).  Remember, that Obama was brought out riding on a donkey and the press made mention of this messianic comparison.  Other messiah talk has also been mentioned by the media and this seems all too convenient … almost conspiratorially so. We even think about the “empty chair” that Clint Eastwood used in an illustration about Obama at the Republican National Convention.  Those who understand Israeli festivals know that Jews set out an empty chair at Passover as a symbol of their awaiting the Messiah.  In essence, it appeared Clint Eastwood was saying “We’re still waiting, because you are no Messiah, Obama”.  Now Obama has signed into law this agreement with Israel.  Satan could easily use Obama as his patsy fall guy or “false messiah” in order to prepare the world for the real False Messiah; and when it comes to the False Messiah, I could see a moderate Republican who is close friends with the Vatican pope (maybe even exalted by the pope) as being far more likely to seduce the very elect if it were possible.  Obama? Not so much.
