Everywhere A Sign

The signs are clear, ‘X’ marks the spot

Last year a Great Sign described in the Bible occurred on 9/23.  That same year, an all-time record number of Jews ascended the Temple Mount: 1,293.  The Great Sign pictured a woman in labor and a soon-to-be-born child.  Israel is the woman.  The child is the Body of Christ, the Church.  Exactly 300 days after the Great Sign, the world witnessed the biggest prophetic development in a half-century as Israel, the woman, enacted the historic nation-state law on July 19th at right about 3:00 am Israeli time.  The media likened the law’s unexpected significance and late night passage to “a thief in the night.”  This was 43 weeks, to the day, from the Feast of Trumpets in 2017—an exact number of weeks within the human gestational range.

Two days later was this past Saturday, July 21st, the 9th of Av, the darkest day in Jewish history when both ancient Temples were destroyed and Jews were expelled from various countries in Europe.  On this day a new all-time record number of Jews ascended the Temple Mount: 1,440.  When the Tribulation begins, 1,440 x 100 Israelites will be sealed (Rev. 7:1–8); these 144,000 later appear on top of a mountain (Rev. 14:1).  This calls to mind the Gatlinburg Fire at the end of 2016 that coincided with the beginning of the Great Sign as Jupiter entered Virgo’s womb.  The fire began on top of a mountain whose height is 1,440 meters (144,000 centimeters).  Among the wreckage from the fire was a single page from a burnt Bible showing a passage from Joel that declared that the Day of the LORD is near:

The climactic moment of the Great Sign was on September 23–24, 2017, when the alignment perfectly matched the description given in Revelation 12:1–2, however, the sign itself began forming 9–10 months before then and continued on until Christmas Day, 2017.  It was a multi-factor mega sign—the greatest heavenly sign in history—and confirmed by tens of thousands of witnesses who were able to read the Bible and trust what was written.  In turn, it was mocked by false accusers and even by supposed watchmen within the Church.

The Great Sign is pointing to the nearness of many major prophetic events: the rapture of the Church of the Firstborn, the commencement of the Day of the LORD, and the completion of The Parable of the Fig Tree.  One thing it is definitely not pointing to is the end of the world (despite what cheesy British tabloids might say).  Yet, God is still using those tabloids to educate unbelievers about the truth of His word because God can even use a donkey to speak.

Moving back to present events, on Sunday, the day after the 9th of Av, a 220 pound boulder dislodged from the Western Wall of the Temple Mount and almost killed a praying Israeli woman, but she survived the calamity just as the woman, Israel, will survive the Tribulation soon to come.  A piece of the wall this size hasn’t fallen in decades, which is suddenly making Jerusalem’s civil engineers and archaeologists nervous about the integrity of the rest of the wall and also the Islamic Dome of the Rock.  When things begin shaking on the Temple Mount, you can be sure the construction of the Third Temple won’t be far behind.  Speaking of 220 pound boulders, Strong’s Greek 220 is “a rooster.”  When a rooster crows you awaken from your slumber.

This boulder crashed down just days after an unusual string of earthquakes shook Israel’s north, the same area through which the armies of Gog will march in fulfillment of Ezekiel 38.  On the heels of these earthquakes, Israel’s comptroller released a study estimating that the next major earthquake to strike the country will kill 7,000 people.  Lo and behold, a divinely-inspired book of prophecy that the nation of Israel rejects, which was written 2,000 years ago, says the same thing:

At that very hour there was a severe earthquake and a tenth of the city collapsed. Seven thousand people were killed in the earthquake, and the survivors were terrified and gave glory to the God of heaven.
- Revelation 11:13

Now we are only three days away from the longest eclipse of any kind for over one hundred years (until 2123).  The entire nation of Israel and almost all of the Middle East will witness the nearly 2-hour long Blood Moon this Friday.  Totality for the “bullseye” Blood Moon will last for 103 minutes in Israel.  Strong’s Hebrew 103 is “to gather.”  God is about to gather His Church and then He will gather the remainder of Israel.  Because of it’s unique significance this century, it is arguably the tail end of the second fulfillment of a prophecy from Joel 2.  Totality will end shortly after midnight on Saturday (in Jerusalem).

But there’s something else that makes this historic Blood Moon even more significant: it’s occurring on Tu B’Av and will appear in close proximity with and directly over an unusually bright Mars—temporarily brighter than the King Planet Jupiter.  In all ancient cultures Mars represented war.  Daily Crow made an astute observation:

Fiery Mars will add to the spectacle as it appears directly below the blood moon at close to its maximum brightness. 5 reasons why this week’s lunar eclipse is going to be a rare celestial delight. Aside from being the longest eclipse of the century, totality will focus on the Middle East. The Mars (War) factor shines light on the geographic location that happens to be embroiled in the greatest conflict. What is equally as interesting is how so few countries (seen below in white) don’t witness any of it. More specifically, the only countries that are not “touched” by either the partial or total eclipse are The United States, Canada, Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Panama, Cuba and Greenland.

Remember the 1,440 Jews who ascended the Temple Mount this past weekend?  A series of Jupiter-Venus conjunctions that many have called the reappearance of the Star of Bethlehem began on August 18, 2014.  Exactly 1,440 days later is this Friday’s historic Blood Moon over Israel (source).

Following the 9th of Av, historic wildfires have ravaged Greece, the ancient cradle of Christianity.  The Bible often likens the coming Day of the LORD to a raging inferno or consuming fire.  So far at least 74 people have been tragically killed by the fire in what the Greek government is calling “a biblical disaster.”  People who were near the inferno, but survived, escaped by running into the sea just as the ancient Israelites escaped the Egyptian army:

Likewise, the Bible likens the Day of the LORD to a furnace and in recent days heat records have been broken in many different countries and across the United States.  As a matter of fact, the highest temperature ever recorded in Africa was just measured in Algeria.

- - -

With the Nation-State Law now in force, it seems God will return His focus to Israel in fulfillment of Acts 15 and Romans 11.  But make note that the previous dispensational change wasn’t immediate.  Daniel’s prophesied 69th week ended at Jesus’ Triumphal Entry.  After that, Messiah was “cut off.”  Then there was a sort of intermediate state for 50 days until the Holy Spirit was given on Pentecost and the Church was conceived in Israel’s womb—Jerusalem.

I would argue that we might be living in just such an intermediate state since we are now living in the aftermath of the Great Sign and the restoration of Israel’s biblical identity via the Nation-State Law.  Just think about that for a moment.  Just like the disciples, who, after the resurrection, were patiently waiting for Christ to fulfill His promise to send the Holy Spirit, so we have seen God’s great, final sign to the Church, and are now patiently waiting for the fulfillment of His promise to change us, glorify us, and take us to His Throne.  We can now say the rapture is imminent in a way that no other generation of Christians could say.  We don’t know the day or hour, but we’re living in the season, and each of the major signs last year lines up perfectly with major biblical festivals this year.

Furthermore, don’t forget about the possible dual fulfillment of Daniel 9:25 I wrote about in May:

This ancient prophecy tells us that a period of 69 weeks of years would begin when a decree is given to “restore and rebuild Jerusalem.” The period would end with the arrival of the Messiah (Jesus Christ). It is already well understood that Daniel’s prophecy pinpointed the exact day of Jesus’ Triumphal Entry (Jesus’ first arrival) in either 32 or 33 AD (with the decree being given by Artaxerxes in 445 or 444 BC for Nehemiah to rebuild Jerusalem’s walls).

Consider the fact that the Bible predicts two arrivals by Jesus and Daniel’s prophecy does not specify who gives the decree initiating the 69 weeks of years. For that reason, it is at least plausible to entertain the possibility that this prophecy could be pointing to both of Messiah’s arrivals.

So here’s the kicker: There was a second decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem in 1535 AD when Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent, emperor of the Ottoman Empire, ordered that the walls of Jerusalem be rebuilt. His walls still stand today—the Old City’s current walls were built because of this command. 69 weeks of years is a period of 483 years (69 x 7). 1535 AD + 483 years = 2018.

There’s more. For some unknown reason, the Angel Gabriel expressed this period of 69 weeks of years as two parts: “62 weeks” and “7 weeks.” 7 weeks of years is 49 years. If this division was at least partially given to explain the Messiah’s second arrival (or appearance) there is an interesting fit: during the Six-Day War in June 1967 the Old City had sustained significant damage, so in 1969 a third decree was given to restore and rebuild Jerusalem. Not much is known about this decree aside from what can be found in a few newspaper clippings, but 1969 + 49 = 2018.

If you are not ready for what’s about to go down I would implore you to be ready.  Being ready isn’t work, it’s a choice.  Choose you this day whom you will serve and get on board the ark.

Keep oil in your lamps my friends, and...

  1. Signs, signs, everywhere a sign...

    Wow... Hah hah... Now I am going to be hearing that song all day! :)

    1. [youtube width="320" height="266" src="oeT5otk2R1g"/]

    2. Can I ask Gary, if the ability to put images and links in comments and replies is reserved only for the writers here, or is there codes that can be used? Sometimes I'd like to insert an image or something in relation to a comment I am making.

      Just curious... :)

    3. Yes, you can definitely add images and videos. Scroll up a bit to where you can select Blogger/Facebook/Disqus and click "Features". That has code you can copy called "shortcodes".

    4. Strongs 727 = "A SUDDEN SNATCHING" (adj form of rapture)
      Strongs 307 = "I DRAW UP"
      Strongs 103 = "TO GATHER"
      727 like July 27th
      307 days from the Rev 12 sign to July 27th, 2018
      103 minutes long is the Blood moon on July 27th
      Only God knows for sure the day and the hour - This is not a prediction, but it is interesting! And I do believe it is God's sign of warning and comfort that the rapture is near...how near? only God knows !

  2. It's like one big Pokemon game and jesus is about to catch us all. LOL.

    1. Lol, I actually snorted out loud when I read that one. Ha.

    2. I think I am going to need more Pokemon jokes! Reeeeeeee!!! (Sorry, I have a 12 year old son.) :-) (Practically speaking, maybe it will cause more google searches for Pokemon stuff to be directed to the Gospel message here. ) We gotta catch em all!

    3. When my daughter was younger, she told me that Jesus caught her in His "love" ball. (Pokemon reference) I thought that was one of the sweetest things I had ever heard. The Lord is more than able to reach us wherever we are. Thanks for reminding me :)

    4. I'm cracked up. That's great!

  3. If one reads Genesis 2:1 again, it will be realized that God technically ended his work on the seventh day … “And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made …” (Genesis 2:1). He did not end it on the sixth, although most of it was completed on the sixth. He technically ended it on the seventh. This could imply that the opening years of the seventh millennium (our opening years of the year 2001 and forward to the present) are the small gap time represented in verse 1 and verse 2 of Genesis 2 wherein God ended his work on the seventh day and then rested later on the seventh day. In other words, "he took the action" of ending his work on the seventh day. I’ll say this again because it bears repeating … it does not say he ended his work on the sixth day and rested at the immediate onset of the seventh. It clearly states that his work ended on the seventh. Genesis 2 verse 2 makes this clear. Therefore, this is why we have not seen the rapture, the Tribulation and the start of the millennial kingdom reign of Christ (the seventh dispensation) yet even though technically it is the seventh day according to our calendar. But, as Hale-Bopp comet of 1997 so dramatically points out to us, the “TRUMP” of the rapture is about to sound because the gap time of Genesis 2 verses 1 & 2 are just about up! It's really amazing to see the details in this particular article on this site (Unsealed) because it's narrowing the signs down within this gap time between the 6th and 7th "day" represented in the Genesis account of the creation a bit tighter! Fascinating stuff.

    1. Good points you make. Chilling to think that unbelievers are defiling God's millennial sabbath and they don't even know it. They're living on borrowed time.

    2. Wow thx for pointing this out, it never really caught my attention that he finnished on the 7th day and then rested.

    3. I just checked this with my German bible and we use PAST PERFECT TENSE actually so that God HAD ended his work on the 6th and in fact rested on the 7th. Just saying.

    4. Genesis 2:3 He sanctified it. He made it holy; in the Hebrew קַדֵּשׁ qadash. Strong's H6942.

  4. So I got me a pen and a paper and I made up my own little sign
    I said, "Thank you, Lord, for thinkin bout me. I'm alive and doin fine"

    1. Do this, don't do that, can't you read the sign?... :D

  5. As a believer I am excited but also realistic. For believers this is great news, our eyes of faith have shown us so much. But heart breaks for those who see all this as just events, nothing to really note. What is glorious for us, is the beginning of so much pain, trouble and heartbreak, unlike anything any of them left behind will have ever experienced.

  6. This is absolutely phenomenal;i. e. the signs, the interpretations, and your stellar assembling of it all. See what I did there? God is so good and thank you for this encouragement.

  7. Breathtaking. Utterly breathtaking. I watched a video this morning wherein it was said that if Jesus was born on 9/11 then what better day for God to give Him His Church than on 9/11 Feast of Trumpets. And all the parallels between 9th of AV and the eclipse are fascinating.


    1. Yes, that's a good point. If the Head was born on 9/11/3 BC, it wouldn't be surprising if the Body was born on 9/11/2018 AD, 2020 years later. That said, I won't set a date! (:

    2. Interesting to note is that we are in the official "peace and safety" year since that specifically named peace conference began September 21, 2017. And the woman in travail sign occurred two days later.Peace and safety then sudden destruction like a woman in travail. This Friday is 44 weeks (maximum pregnancy) from the great sign AND the day before is the 11 th month 9th day since the peace and safety declaration.

    3. @Unknown, nice catch! I went back to my recent article An Interesting Alignment of Dates and realized I hadn't noticed the alignment to 7/27

      From 9/23/17 to 7/27/18 is 44 weeks EXACTLY (counting inclusively).

    4. Would that imply a very large, fully mature baby?

  8. The signs are everywhere! No doubt about it. For me, the signs happen all around me as well, im sure they do for everyone i just think many don't perceive it. Anyway, Jesus Christ is Lord! He is coming soon!

    Maranatha! Much love, peace

    1. Hit enter and realized it was 10:44.

      Just before this I was checking out the latest earthquakes. Checking out this one off the OR coast, 5.6, happened at 14:44.

  9. 9th of AV also known as the Jewish 9/11

  10. While we are at it, what if we go ahead and add the fifty day gap possibility to the July 19th date...

    That puts us at September 7/8. Maybe we add another three days because July 19 is more analogous to the crucifixion? That would put us at one of our favorite dates: September 11, 2018...

    Somebody who is good at this, help me out. Am I on to something?

    1. From the 9th of Av when 1,440 Jews ascended the Temple Mount, just two days after the Nation-State Law, to Elul 29 (9/9), is 50 days exactly. FOT Eve is the day in which all sorts of stuff was predicted to go down in 2015 culminating with an even bigger event the next day.

    2. Speaking of numeric combinations of 144, on what day was man created? How many hours is that? 144-hours.

      The 144th hour is when G-d began the creation given us on the sixth day.

    3. There is an interesting parallel that I see coming in late September. Monday September 10, 2018 begins the Hebrew calendar (HC) day of Month 7, Day 1 at sunset. This is Yom Teruah (Feast of Trumpets) and the Civil New Year Rosh Hashanah. On our Gregorian calendar we mark those high days on September 11. (Hebrew calendar days go sunset-to-sunset where our solar calendars go midnight-to-midnight -- thus the overlap).

      Here's where the interesting thing happens...

      M7-D1 (9/10/18-9/11/18) begins Yom Teruah (Feast of Trumpets) and Yomim Noraim (Days of Awe). This begins a season of festivals that end on M7-D23 with Shemini Atzeret (Eighth Day Solemn Assembly) which begins the evening of (10/1) and ends the evening (10/2).

      If you're like me you may consider 9/11 as being the birthday of our Lord. (Knowing that life begins at conception, I believe Christ was conceived *born* on this day) and it is obviously the 17th anniversary of the 9/11 attack in the United States.

      Sunset on September 19 begins Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) and runs until sunset of September 20.

      Feast of Trumpets (FoT) (2017/5777) fell on September 21 last year. This year September 21 falls between Yom Kippur and Feast of Booths/Tabernacles. Following me so far? September 21 is not a feast day this year 2018/5778.

      September 22, 2018 is not a feast day either but September 23, falls on an interesting day. Not only is it the one-year anniversary of the Great Sign of Revelation 12, but it is Erev Sukkot (Eve of Feast of Booths/Tabernacles) AND the annual Fall Equinox at (01:54 UT).

      If you're still with me, you will see that we have,

      September 11 - Feast of Trumpets, Civil New Year, birth of Christ and 17th anniversary of 9/11 attacks.

      September 21 - One year since FoT 2017/5777 (not a feast day this year - a day of "rest" as it were) - this is a Friday (sixth day of the week)

      September 23 - One year since R12 sign (also not a feast day but falls on a Friday, the sixth day also known as Preparation Day - the day before the Sabbath), AND the Fall Equinox.

      Ten days before 9/21 is the beginning of the fall feasts. Ten days after is the end of the fall feasts. (9/21) falls right in the middle! The Day of Atonement is followed by two-days of rest which includes a Sabbath (9/21-9/22). On the third day a new season dawns - fall rises (9/23).

      Atonement. Rest. Resurrection. Three days!

      Am I seeing things?

      I have a spreadsheet showing this if anyone is interested...

    4. Want more?

      I mentioned above that September 11, 2018 is the 17th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks in the US. 17-years is 887-weeks or 6,209-days.

      Now take a look at Strong's Hebrew 6,209:

      arar: to strip oneself
      Original Word: ×¢ָרַר
      Part of Speech: Verb
      Transliteration: arar
      Phonetic Spelling: (aw-rar')
      Short Definition: razed

      Word Origin
      a prim. root
      to strip oneself
      NASB Translation
      completely razed (1), stripped (1), undress (1).

      Brown-Driver-Briggs Hebrew Lexicon:


      1) to strip, make bare, strip oneself
      1a) (Qal) to strip, strip oneself
      1b) (Poel) to lay bare
      1c) (Hithpalpel) to be utterly stripped, be utterly laid bare
      1d) (Pilpel) break

      Four (4) occurrences in the Bible,

      1. (Isaiah 23:13)
      2. (Isaiah 32:11)
      3. (Jeremiah 51:58)
      4. (Jeremiah 51:58)

    5. Very thought-provoking observations, Pastor Rich. I think you may be on to something. We have what will be the highest watch *month* of our lifetimes, imho.

    6. ...more?

      Torahcalendar.com has lots of pin-points to explore and compare against scripture. Check-out Month 7, Day 24 (10/3/18-10/4/18). It's not the day but when it falls that catches my attention. The day after a strong candidate date for the rapture?

      See for yourself at "http://torahcalendar.com/Calendar.asp?YM=Y2018M7"

      Seven angels, seven churches, seven lamp-stands, seven seals, seven plagues, seventh day rest, etc...24-priests (1 Chronicles 24), 24-elders, 24-thrones, (Revelation 4), etc...

      Month 7, Day 24. Israel turns to G-d as the church has departed? Perhaps.

      Monday (evening), October 1st and the day of Tuesday, October 2nd are Shemini Atzeret (Eighth Day Solemn Assembly), an appointed day unto itself. Quoting TorahCalendar.com,

      "Shemini Atzeret is a Sabbath day separate and distinct from Sukkot. It is an appointed time the day after Sukkot on which Israel assembles. One tradition says Jacob married Rachel on this day."

      Shemini Atzeret falls on the third day of the week.

      Third day. Twice blessed. Cana wedding. (John 2) Those who have followed Chuck Missler will catch my drift! The symbolism just doesn't cease.

      Tuesday, October 2nd is a high watch day for many of us. I have modelled Steve Sewell's time-line (Blessedhope2018.com) in a spread sheet and note that Steve's time-line ends with Hanukkah 2025 being Kingdom Day. Hanukkah Day 1 is EXACTLY 3,000-days (inclusive) after the Great Sign of Revelation 12. The passage of the Jewish Nation-State Bill became law 300-days after the R12 sign.

      300-days from R12 sign to a nation defined. 3000-days from R12 sign to a kingdom defined? Perhaps.

      The symbols go on and on and on and on and on and on and on!

      I have found there is not enough time in the day to pour into my Bible study! Not nearly enough!

      All apologies for my *shotgun* delivery. I'm short on time. My notes are not exhaustive as space does not allow here but you should get the idea!

      Am I date setting? No. I refuse to do that. I do keep watch! I make observations where I am led and bring light of them that they may be a trigger and a blessing to you in your personal study. But DON'T take my word for it, dig deep, study and PRAY for yourself!

      Always be ready to share your story (testimony) and the love of Christ wherever you go. Keep G-D first in your life and pray without ceasing. All the Law is Love and love is the command we were given by our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, so live in it.

      Faith. Hope. Love!


    7. Hi all! Here's why I believe The Lord will return sooner than September. He said to look up when summer was "near". He is at the door when summer is near. as well, Song of Solomon references spring and eArly summer. Divide summer, which separates spring and fall. I believe Jesus will return in the days closer to spring not fall (before the halfway point). We are 35 days in and 35 means Hope in the Bible. Looking up now!

    8. Hey Gary!

      Quoting you, "From the 9th of Av when 1,440 Jews ascended the Temple Mount, just two days after the Nation-State Law, to Elul 29 (9/9), is 50 days exactly."

      What happens if you add two-days to your observation and count from 9th of Av to Yom Teruah? 52-days right? Sunday, July 22, 2018 to Tuesday, September 11, 2018 (inclusive).

      How do you spell 52 in Hebrew? (Keeping in mind *for the uninitiated* that letters double as numbers in Hebrew)

      "בן" (ben)

      "50" + "2" = "ב" + "ן"

      50 + 2 = 52

      son = 52

      ben: son
      Original Word: בֵּן
      Part of Speech: Noun Masculine
      Transliteration: ben
      Phonetic Spelling: (bane)
      Short Definition: son
      NAS Exhaustive Concordance
      Word Origin
      a prim. root

      Could it be the time span between 9th of Av and Feast of Trumpets is marked by the word "son"?

      It sure looks like it!

    9. OK Richard so all you're in fact saying is "If Jesus doesn't come THIS fall season right now, I don't know anymore what I'm gonna do..." Yes, me too... ;-)

    10. Want more?!

      52-days is 1248-hours.

      Looking back at Strong's Hebrew again what do we find?

      Strong's Concordance #1248
      bar: son
      Original Word: בַּר
      Part of Speech: Noun Masculine
      Transliteration: bar
      Phonetic Spelling: (bar)
      Short Definition: son
      NAS Exhaustive Concordance
      Word Origin
      from bar
      NASB Translation
      son (4).

      "בן" is the Hebrew word for "son". "בר" is the Aramaic form of the word "son". Both apply as the Aramaic was adopted into Hebrew. The number of the name "son" is 202.

      What do we see looking forward on the calendar from 9th of Av 202-days? Nothing that I can tell. What do we see looking backward from 9th of Av 202-days?


      So I guess it may be safe to say that the timespan from New Year's Day 2018 to the 9th of Av to Rosh Hashana / Feast of Trumpets is DOUBLE marked by the word "son".

      What awesome poetry! That covers the solar (Gentile) calendar, the lunar (Hebrew) calendar and pivots on the first and second Temples in Jerusalem and all point to the Fall Festivals but most of all the Son of Man, Christ Jesus Himself.

      Knowledge increased!

      Thank you Jesus!!

      Pastor Rich

    12. Well, Annabel, you see...

      Sorry if I get long winded! I try to write that a stranger or newcomer to the faith and topic will have half a chance to understand what I'm trying to say.

      But, Yeah. Personally, if we are not called home this fall I'm okay with that. More time to pray to be blessed to be a blessing. Loved to be loving and graced to be graceful.

      Faith, hope and Love!

  11. Thanks, Gary! It's fascinating to be alive at this intermediate stage, the pivot point from one age to the next. This whole journey since looking up in 2017 has an interesting parallel to the disciples "looking up" and seeing Jesus ascend in Acts 1, and then having to wait on pins and needles until Acts 2, at Pentecost.

    1. I love what Hillary shared about "looking up" on FB:

      "Notice the 'they' and the 'your.' Different groups!

      'And then shall *THEY* see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. And when these things *BEGIN* to come to pass, then look up, and lift up *YOUR* heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.' Luke 21:27-28"

  12. Looks like Hitler's Turkish doppleganger is a bit unhappy with Israel's new law:

    "PRESIDENT Erdogan of Turkey has launched an astonishing attack on Israel – saying the 'spirit of Hitler has re-emerged' among administrators.

    The Ankara chief's words were in response to Israel's new 'nation-state' law, with Erdogan branding Israel the 'most Zionist, racist and fascist country'.

    He argued the new law legitimises 'unlawful actions and oppression'.

    The 'nation-state' law has been criticised for effectively ruling out a two-state solution to the long-running Israel-Palestine conflict.

    Palestinians have threatened to go to the International Criminal Court and the UN to protest against the new legislation.

    Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu has hit back, saying Turkey has become a 'dark dictatorship' under Erdogan.

    In a war of words, he accused the Turkish president of 'massacring Syrians and Kurds'."

  13. I really enjoyed reading this article. Thank you very much Gary.

  14. Maybe the age of the woman who was nearly Cryshed also points to something, she was nearly Crushed but survived at 79. If she is symbolic to Israel, then would that redemption not be at Israel's 79th anniversary? And the rapture at 72? Time will tell. Maranatha

    1. So the rapture and DoTL starting in 2020? A 2020-2027 Trib? Could very well be. All I can say is that my current understanding of the Parable of the Fig Tree puts an upper limit on Christ's second advent in 2028 (for a max 80 year generation), thus a rapture no later than 2021.

      All that said, 2018 is looking more promising than anything I've ever seen.

    2. Yes, Gary. We are on the verge of the peace agreement now, Russia/Iran/Turkey are on Israel's northern border now, the Jewish Nation State bill is Basic Law now, the longest lunar eclipse in more than a century is 3 days away, the 1440 Jews on the Temple Mount, the most ever, just happened and the myriads of other signs and phenomenal day counts is all happening now. I just can't envision the Rapture being 3 years away. The Lord said He won't bring to the point of delivery and not deliver.

    3. "The Lord said He won't bring to the point of delivery and not deliver."

      Amen to that. Isaiah 66.

    4. I just read a very comforting passage in 2nd Baruch chapter 23 when God answers to the lamentations of Baruch (with whom I can fully relate these days, please read the book for yourself!) = http://www.yahwehswordarchives.org/books-of-baruch/2nd-book-baruch-022.htm

  15. Gary! I am rejoicing! I have chills and want to thank you again for all your hard work and faithfulness as a watchman and for putting this together. It's so bittersweet because I am also so heartbroken for those who will be left behind.

    That mention of the 7000 floors me. It's straight out of scripture and they don't even know it. Wow.

    1. Thank you sis, and thanks for sharing!

  16. https://www.rt.com/news/434055-google-translate-dog-apocalypse/ This article published yesterday. And it is intriguing. I guess the word Dog is really Ominous. Dogs are a regular character in the Bible.. https://bible.knowing-jesus.com/topics/Dogs Anyways, Maranatha Brothers and Sisters

  17. Thrilling! I think we all can FEEL the nearness!

  18. Gary - you do realise that you and your (my) brethren are reallllly bad for my work ethic! How on earth can I concentrate on developing quality workshops for my work tomorrow, when all my mind wants to do is ponder and meditate on what is going on around us!

    Some further musings...Daniella means "God has judged", or "God is Judge". Goldberg, meaning 'gold mountain'. Proverbs 17:3 - The crucible is for silver, and the furnace is for gold, and the Lord tests hearts. Fire on the Mountain...hmmm

    So what could the boulder be a warning judgement for?? What happened on 9 Av, as the 1440 jews were ascending the temple mount?? Only thousands of Israelis marching against the surrogacy laws prohibiting Gays from adopting children through surrogacy. The number of people in the march was approximately 100,000. Perhaps the boulder that fell from the wailing wall was a reminder to Israel what God did to Sodom and Gomorrah and Egypt (boulders of a different kind that fell from heaven...hail and sulfur etc), and what is awaiting 'that city called Sodom and Egypt' (rev 11:8).

    Anyway - like Daniella's name sake, God has judged and God will judge. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!


    1. "So what could the boulder be a warning judgement for?? What happened on 9 Av, as the 1440 jews were ascending the temple mount??

      Oh, yes. That's a BIG ONE. But bigger still - the nation still reject Christ and has it in their hearts to restore the Law-keeping and sacrifices which were fulfilled in Christ through His blood. Until they cry out for Yeshua, the nation will experience terror.

    2. How can I get any work done you say? Glad I'm not the only one suffering that!!

    3. Ryan, LOL! :-D I'm in the lucky condition not being forced to work (at the moment) but called to sanctify so "to hell with work ethics" we're going to reign with Christ!!! MARANATHA! Blessings to you...

  19. How many here are planning on buying long storage food for your loved ones you will leave behind this year? Seriously. I could not rest at all till I have done such. You just going to leave nothing to help them survive? If one can do something good , and doesn't, it's not pleasing to God.

    1. Hi Stan, I think about these type of things. Our house is paid off just as our cars are. We even have gold bullion available for money. But I cannot pay-off the recurring taxes on the house. I cannot pay the monthly electric bill, gas bill or water bill. I cannot provide a steady worldly income that will deliver from a system that is being prepared a place setting for a double portion of G-D's wrath.

      We are trying to leading by example; now while we still have time! Donating our time. Pouring into the lives of others. Working to develop trust in those G-d gives us to minister to in hopes that saving faith may be truly formed in the hearts of those who need Jesus the most. Praying for the encouragement of the saints and for the salvation of the lost in conjunction with our ministry. It's a round the clock effort for us.

      "If one can do something good" you say? Be His hands and feet here on earth right now. More often than naught He uses a human being to deliver a miracle. Be present and willing to act when He provides opportunity. There are too many empty seats on the Ark. The lifeboats are not filled!

      But if I'm to leave bottled water, canned foods and dried milk behind, you better believe they will be under a case of Bibles with instructions for use!


    2. If I had to live through the tribulation I wouldn't try to survive

    3. Pastor Rick....Your plan including Bibles of course is needed to be included.

    4. Stan, all one would find in our house are some bibles, many commentaries and a few leftovers... We cannot afford such things you speak of, have to turn every dime, just that simple. I fully trust in God that He will achieve His aim with mankind in every jod and tittle He has written in the bible. I'm in great peace about this and have no bad conscience about things I cannot work out anyway (Philippians 2:13). MARANATHA! Blessings to you :-)

    5. Annabel....I totally understand the afford part. We all have different levels of blessings to share. I have been amazed at how prayer has caused extra blessings in my life so as I can help more people. Though I firmly believe I will be helping others through the tribulation personally....should I did today, my loved ones left behind will have it much easier.

  20. To add to Gary's 'Sign' or 'Signal' posting, for a daily stomach churning dose of many other signs and signals from around the Earth telling us we are inching ever so close to the day of redemption (Titus 2:13), head over to:


    For example, "Italian Bishop: I Would ‘Turn All Churches into Mosques’ to Save Migrants"

    Oh really, the RCC would do such a thing? (sarcasm included).

  21. Just two more examples of Really, did you just print this (foretelling of soon to be fulfilled Bible prophecy)? No doubt, the unleashing is about to begin....

    1] G-D’s WRATH: Earthquakes are wreaking havoc on Iran, as the Islamic Republic is enduring hell on Earth


    2] Man Who Identifies as Woman Goes on Axe Attack, Hears Demonic Voices to ‘Start the Rise of Hell on Earth’


  22. At https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2018/jul/24/why-is-europe-going-through-a-heatwave "Why is Europe going through a heatwave? "I read the following:

    "Why is Europe going through a heatwave?

    Scientists say this ‘extreme’ weather in the northern hemisphere may soon be the norm
    Why is it so hot?

    Partly, it’s just the luck of the weather. The jet stream – the west-to-east winds that play a big role in determining Europe’s weather – has been further north than usual for about two months. A stationary high-pressure weather system has left the UK and much of continental Europe sweltering. Iceland, by contrast, has been hit with clouds and storms that would normally come further south.

    The jet stream’s northerly position may have been influenced by temperatures in the north of the Atlantic, which have been relatively warm in the subtropics and colder south of Greenland.

    “The current hot and dry spell in the UK is partly due a combination of North Atlantic ocean temperatures, climate change and the weather,” said Len Shaffrey, a professor of climate science at the University of Reading.

    The influence of climate change on the jet stream is still being explored."

    At this moment northern Europe is suffering from a severe and a prolonged drought. My observations are that the climate change is spiralling out of control now, every subsequent year is hotter, more extreme than the previous year. Now that Israel has existed for 70 years, we should not be surprised that the weather has gone crazy now, more extreme than ever before. I think that the Tribulation Period will be a period with extreme and long lasting droughts in the temperate climate zones which are especially important for the food production. See verses below from the Book of Revelations. Could it be that the current heat and drought in many places now, like in northern Europe, will extend into the Tribulation Period which is about to begin?

    "Revelations 6:5-6 (KJV):
    5 And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.
    6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine."

    This will happen during the early part of the Tribulation Period when the antichrist has emerged and has confirmed that phony covenant with Israel and the many (Horseman on the white horse). Food so expensive that your wage goes up into a scarce portion of food will not only be caused by massive droughts, but enhanced by worldwide wars (Horseman on the red horse), trade wars and a collapse of the financial and monetary system.

    "Revelations 8:7 (KJV):
    7 The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up."

    Hail and fire thrown onto the earth. That could be meteorite impacts. The burning up of vegetation is only possible when the vegetation has been withered by a long lasting drought during the Tribulation Period.

    1. It has been the hottest summer ever around the Earth.

      Note: the 'Climate Change Lie'

      From Natural News: The “global warming” hoax: 30 years of failed predictions that never happened


    2. Is this hottest summer ever a prelude to what kind of weather the people will endure during the Tribulation Period? Wheat prices are already skyrocketing now.

      I think that the global wind and pressure patterns are being prepared for the Tribulation Period now which I expect to begin already this year in September/October. It could be that during the Tribulation Period the normal seasons are changed, intense heat during the winter, freezing cold during the summer. Could the prolonged drought in northern Europe lead to food shortages in short run which will cause food riots in Europe? It could be that during food riots together with a war in the Middle-East the antichrist will emerge from Europe.

    3. Simply stated, but, things are just heating up...

    4. @Moin Dear friend, the MSM news cannot explain anything as they're not SUPPOSED to do so. In fact it's Isaiah 24:19-20 (polar and crustal shift / tilt) beginning to play out + the cosmic weather side effects of the "red dragon" system approaching earth (Revelation 12:3-4). But of course no one would tell you about until the moment it gets too obvious... These are informations you got to research on your own with independent truthers. Not from MSM. Blessings to you!

    5. Isaiah talks about the planet earth itself wiggling by external forces like comets and asteroids impacting the planet during the Tribulation Period.

  23. Another 'sign' from Mike 444: THERE WILL BE SIGNS IN THE SUN AND MOON

    Apparently there was a 3hr (sun) blackout in Russia yesterday...Oh Annabell!!


    1. Yes dear friend you know what? Watch this one: https://youtu.be/EPhjz0ma2LY "AO 'Saves the Day' in new Blockbuster Ad" LOL! THAT'S what happened there. Sun simulator breakdown...

      MARANATHA, Jesus is on His way!

    2. Yeah, I saw that! Apparently that area of Russia should be experiencing nearly 24 hour days this time of year (being far north), but instead had hours of darkness around noon. Then when the darkness dissipated the region was covered in dust... WHAT?!!

    3. Listen to Many Fish, he covers the 3hr of darkness (in Russia) and more..This one is for you Anabell! ;-)

      A House Divided! Summoning Nimrod (anti-Christ)! Jesus' Soon Return!


  24. Two other links confirming the 3hr blackout in Russia (should be 24hrs of light)

    1] From The Real MLordandGod - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-FBkdjhiqmU

    2] From Jeremiah 11 11 2nd Exodus - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5bHYHGrBjlA

    1. Incredible and chilling. Of course the MSM isn't touching this.

  25. More to study on the Boulder crashing down scenario. Gary, your post is excellent as always and the boulder falling stirred me to remember an article from a day or so ago about a 2 ton boulder crashing down the mountainside into a Swedish village. No people were hurt. But, in searching for that story to link it I was astounded. Just Google Boulder crashing down - sampling - Ohio Feb 2018 - 50 Ton Boulder crashes down in Billings, MT June '2018, Boulder crashing down - Western Wall in July 2018, Boulder crashes down in Pasadena, CA March '2018,3-4 Ton Boulder in Manoa, HI in April, 2018. I stopped there & didn't see the Swedish one from 2 days ago yet and also recall the Boulder that was spewed out of the Volcano in HI and crashed into a tourist boat earlier this month. Is this "normal"? I don't know, I didn't go back beyond this year and I didn't detail them all. Whole lotta Shakin' Goin' On! Blessings - Sherry

    1. Very interesting. I definitely haven't heard about such occurrences until recently!

    2. Gary, are you aware that now the Rabbis are saying the stone that fell from the Western Wall and almost hit the woman will be the first stone for The 3rd Temple. They see it as "a sign" its time to commence construction. We shall see - Clearly they are sill missing "the Cornerstone". Blessings - Sherry

  26. https://m.jpost.com/Arab-Israeli-Conflict/Two-front-flareup-IDF-strikes-on-both-northern-and-southern-borders-563445

    1. Yeah, it's looking like Gaza has flared up again. An Israeli soldier was injured and three more "Palestinians" were killed: https://www.timesofisrael.com/soldiers-fired-upon-by-gazan-gunmen-2-palestinians-said-killed-in-idf-strikes/

    2. I really think Israel will be in the news everyday until the lunar eclipse and especially after it.

  27. We are truly living in amazing times I sooo cant wait to go home im so excited I cant stop smiling family ! Thank you so much Gary maranatha

  28. Gary, I was thinking abput one of your posts that mentioned there was a break between the Ages or Dispensations after Christ rose from the grave, ascended to heaven, and finally the conception of the Church came about after 50 days had transpired when the Holy Spirit descended on the new believers in flames of fire. If we, for example, turn the 50 days here into 50 weeks after the Rev12 Great Sign of Sep 23-24, 2017 in the heavens, this puts the date on Sept 9, 2017, which on my Gregorian calendar says the First Day of Rosh Hashanah, but also shows a dark moon that day and no sliver of the moon by 2 witnesses may be seen until Sept 10th or even the 11th. Could this mean a possible rapture happen a day or 2 b4 the FOT on a dark moon, this so on a night when no moon is expected to be seen anyway Christ's appearing wouldn't get in the way of viewing the faint sliver the next day to mark the FOT for the Jews? Christ's glorious light on the day of the rapture, be it day or night, will be in full force or accentuated this way. Just speculating.

  29. Hey Gary, great article. Anyone Considered that the upcoming mars event could be the red dragon sign in rev 12? It just seems strange that it has this huge dust storm covering it, and it occurs within a day of the longest super blood moon seen over Israel this century. Think NASA has referred to it as a red dragon and space x was sending some device there that was also called the red dragon! Rev 12 dose mention two signs before the male child is snatched to the throne. If I’m right, man trumpets looks good this year! In any case, maranatha!

    1. Here are some other interesting things about mars over the next few days:

      Mars is redder, closer and aligning in a way that it has not in 60000 years, or shall we say ever.

      That should get our attention.

      My research uncovered this: Mars has two moons. They are called: Phobos and Deimos. Translation PANIC and TERROR!!!

      It will be in the constellation Capricornus meaning "horned goat". It is located in the part of the sky called the sea or water. Its brightest star is named Deneb algedi meaning TAIL of the goat.

      Another way to consider the word TAIL, since we are trying to understand "the TAIL of the dragon" which sweeps a third of the stars out of the sky, is it is the part AFTER... So instead of looking for a physical trait, we look for a more abstract interpretation....

      Notice that the day AFTER Mars and the lunar eclipse appear, there is a meteor shower on july 28. Will this be the third of stars falling to earth? I don't know. Just trying to put the pieces together.

    2. Miguel P, astute observations as always.

    3. Miguel, buddy, you may be onto something. Recall the beast rising out of the sea? Hmmm. An interesting shadow of this perhaps? See my notes below regarding the additional findings on Mars.

      Some pin-points we should be looking for regarding, "another sign" from (Revelation 12:3),

      1. Seven heads
      2. Ten horns
      3. Seven diadems

      Digging into the contextual definitions of these terms is very helpful.

    4. Thank you Archangel and PR. I could use the pat on the back and a little prayer today.

      I was trying to parallel those heads, horns and crowns with the number of stars and constellations around Mars, but I got in way over my head. Maranatha.

    5. I hear ya Miguel! Consider yourself lifted up in prayer because I did just that!

      Here's a hint for study, go to a resource like Biblehub.com and a passage which contains the word you wish to study. OT will be in Hebrew, NT in Greek. Search the parallel texts for English to original language renderings. Examine the entries for concordance, meanings, parts of speech, etc. Dig for classical applications of the word and commentary. Some are good and some not as good (IMHO).

      Most of all pray before you work that the LORD open your heart and eyes to these things and meet you in this time of learning. You may be shocked at what you find!

      But I can tell you this, original languages are where it's at!

      Happy hunting!

  30. I was thinking about this just yesterday (being in the DC area), but here it is from 'USA Today'

    "40 million in West face scorching heat; 30 million under flood watch in East"

    And some other reports about the 'weather'


    Japan's deadly heat wave declared a natural disaster as death toll continues to rise

  31. We know God is control of everything, but we also know wars are started because someone has something someone wants. Just think of the spat between you and your sibling growing up over that one toy we wanted which they had...

    So, WW3 to be started over a natural resource like fresh H2O? You bet? We know from Scripture the land will be laid to waste, it will be parched (heat/fires), 1/3 of all waters will be embittered (from inbound Wormwood). Here is a lead in from the 'media' to what we know is going to happen as it has been foretold:


    My o my, how true the Bible is!

  32. And here in Baltimore we (not me) are drowning. A rain record was set just the other day.


    Evidence of sub-glacial liquid water found on Mars. *Global* storm on the red planet coincides with a close conjunction with the moon with the moon having conjuncted with Venus, Jupiter and Saturn already this cycle. Of course we have the longest lunar eclipse happening over the Holy Land tomorrow.

    Hmmm, Mars. Red planet named for the god of war. Liquid water discovered like a small ocean, buried. Somehow my thoughts are brought back to Job and G-d's description of leviathan.

    Blood moon as a sign. Blood moon a marker? Marking another sign in the heavens (Revelation 12:3)


    1. Oh, and the word "tempest" comes to mind when thinking about Mars. As well as void. Void of life. Barren. Stark. Desolate. Dead.

      Sometimes I wish we could edit previous posts.

  34. The dead rise first cause its not Christians who die in the lord. To absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. My feeling is this is a special case. Like in Mathew and the earth shook; and the rocks were split,

    and the tombs were opened; and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised;

    and coming out of the tombs after His resurrection they entered the holy city and appeared to many and 40 days later they all go up.

  35. Looks like America 🇺🇸 might bomb Iran while Germany is aiding them. President Trump was right; Europe is a "foe". Jerusalem Post is running the Germany aiding Iran story.


  36. https://m.jpost.com/International/Report-Iran-using-German-companies-to-finance-war-in-Yemen-563573

  37. I like what is written in this post regarding the Blood moon eclipse of today... signes everywhere:

    We typically get two eclipses during an eclipse season. But as was just noted, during this current eclipse season, not two, but three eclipses will take place within a single synodic month of 29.53 days—the time it takes to go from one new moon to the next.

    here is the link of the full article:

  38. Indeed, signs everywhere.

    A concept visited me today. Why look in only visible light? When looking for "another sign" why not look across the full spectrum of light? Not only that but at other objects that are "hidden" but well known?

    This led me to looking at Sagittarius A, the massive black hole at the centre of our galaxy.

    Saturn is in conjunction with Sagittarius A and has some *interesting* features that come to view in x-rays...namely an invisible crown of *stars*.

    Not making any claims here, just bringing light to a different perspective. (No pun intended)

    I am doing my initial studies using Sky Guide for iPhone.


    Looking forward on the cosmic calendar there are some very interesting conjunctions that occur at the April 8, 2024 solar eclipse over the US!

    Well worth firing up your astronomy software to see what signs and wonders are to come in the heavens.

    Happy hunting!


    1. Now THAT'S an interesting idea... and something that would not have been possible in any way in John's day.

    4. Updating an earlier post...

      There are many reasons to consider other (higher) frequencies of light above visible frequencies. The Light of this world and all of creation is Christ. It may be good to look in *hidden* places for the enemy and his sign. One such place may be in X-rays. They occupy a higher frequency spectrum than our visible light and are thus beyond our direct (naked eye) observation.

      As a matter of fact x-rays are the next highest frequency in light waves after gamma rays. That has an interesting symbolism all it's own!

      Sharing and thinking out loud. The tools to explore this are readily available to anyone with a computer or smart phone. Perhaps this would shed new light on the search for the dragon?


    5. Pastor Richard, I heartily recommend a set of videos (3) just posted by ClearlyWrittenDotNet. He's compiled videos from others on the astronomical signs and shows the Red Dragon in conjunction with the Draconid's storm coming up in October. Astounding amount of information. Bring Paper, Pencil, Coffee, Bible and a heart to do some Bible Study for its a Bible Study. Very, very exciting - I don't agree with his flip on the seals when he could just pull them back properly to Pentecost and allow them to grow in intensity and accomplish the same thing without flipping Chapter 7 and Chapter 6 - other than that - I'm with him! Math skills needed for this one, but well explained. https://youtu.be/Xggmla4pr04 link to the first video (22 minutes) he links to Video #2 - 2:59 (the longest) #3 just under 2 hours. Astronomy, Math, Scripture all combined. Blessings - Sherry

    6. Awesome, Sherry, thank you!

  39. This comment has been removed by the author.

    1. @Sherry, Thanks! Will check that out.
      @All, Sharing a find from THEAVIATIONIST.COM on a recent incident in Greenland.

      Report: Meteor Made 2.1 Kiloton Explosion Over Air Force Space Command Base Thule, Greenland.

      There's some interesting information provided here as well as historical information on the very large Chelyabinsk meteor that struck the earth on Feb. 15, 2013.

      Quoting, "NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory did provide a Tweet with a screenshot of data showing record of an object of unspecified size traveling at (!) 24.4 Kilometers per second (about 54,000 MPH or Mach 74) at 76.9 degrees’ north latitude, 69.0 degrees’ west longitude on July 25, 2018 at 11:55 PM. That latitude and longitude does check out as almost directly over Thule, Greenland."

      "When you look at NASA’s Near Earth Object (NEO) Program database for objects entering the atmosphere you see that, “The data indicate that small asteroids struck Earth’s atmosphere – resulting in what astronomers call a bolide (a fireball, or bright meteor) – on 556 separate occasions in a 20-year period. Almost all asteroids of this size disintegrate in the atmosphere and are usually harmless.” That is a rate of one asteroid, or “bolide”, every 13 days over the 20-year study according to a 2014 article by Deborah Byrd for Science Wire as published on EarthSky.org."

      The following is a video compilation of atmospheric shockwave impacts in the Chelyabinsk region. It will give you an idea of the force experienced in a *smaller* event. When I say *smaller* keep in mind that researchers believe the object that we call the Tunguska Event is estimated to have been as large as 15 megatons (15 million tons of TNT).

      Modern day ICBM's are generally in the kiloton range for yield per warhead. VASTLY less powerful.


      I would have fully embedded these external sources but don't yet have the *touch* for getting them right.
