Brexit Day Is Finally Here, Capping Off A Historic Week



Brexit will be official in just a few hours.  The United Kingdom will formally leave the European Union, becoming the first nation to ever do so.  As the only E.U. country with significant "opt-outs," the U.K.'s presence in the continental confederation continually stifled further integration among the Union's 28 member states.  The obstacle is now gone, and there is widespread expectation that the new Franco-German axis will push hard for true federation—with all the prophetic consequences that entails.

I want to bring your attention to a short article I wrote nearly three years ago, pointing out that the European Union is a strange earthly shadow of Revelation 12 (see here):

And a great sign was seen in the sky: a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars, and having [a child] in [her] womb she cries out, travailing and being in pain to bring forth.  And there was seen another sign in the sky, and behold, a great fire-colored dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns on his heads, and his tail draws the third of the stars of the sky, and he cast them to the earth; and the dragon stood before the woman who is about to bring forth, that when she may bring forth, he may devour her child; and she brought forth a male son, who is about to rule all the nations with a rod of iron, and her child was snatched up to God and to His throne, and the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place made ready from God, that there they may nourish her—one thousand, two hundred, sixty days.
- Revelation 12:1–6 (From The LSV Bible)


If you've seen Stranger Things you'll catch my drift: the E.U. is like the "upside down" of the prophecy—the marred and darkened image of the true reality.

Revelation 12 follows the major prophetic template first set forth in Genesis 3:15–16 of a woman in labor, confronted by a serpent, giving birth to a male child.  This theme is repeated throughout the Scriptures as the penultimate prophecy of the Seed.  The prophecy culminates with the birth of Christ (the male child) to a woman (Mary) who escapes with Him from a murderous snake (Herod).  And ultimately, the prophecy concludes with the mystical body of Christ, the Church (the male child), conceived in Israel (the woman), born into Heaven (our heavenly mother: see Gal. 4:26), escaping from a final attack from Satan (the serpent).  The astronomical aspect of Revelation 12:1–2 was literally fulfilled on September 23rd and 24th of 2017.

But with the E.U. we see a twisted version of the prophecy play out.

A woman clothed with the sun: Europe is named after the mythological woman Europa.  Her statue can be seen across the continent, including in front of various E.U. government buildings in Brussels.  As for the "sun," Europe was the cradle of Christianity for nearly two millennia—the faith of the Son.

And the moon under her feet: given that the countries immediately south of Europe are Muslim, several of them have crescent moons on their flags (Tunisia, Algeria, Libya; and to the southeast—Turkey).  Note that the moon under the feet of Virgo in September 2017 was also a crescent moon (a new moon).

And on her head a garland of twelve stars: the flag of the European Union is a garland or circle of twelve stars.

Travailing and being in pain to bring forth: the E.U. has been beset with financial and geopolitical issues from the very beginning.  This "labor" has ultimately brought about the exit of the U.K. from the Union after years of nationalist protests, which have even spread to other countries in the continent.

And she brought forth a male son, who is about to rule all the nations with a rod of iron: the actual fulfillment of the prophecy regards Christ in union with His Church ruling the nations during the millennium, but this "upside down" and satanic twist of the prophecy points to the arrival of the Antichrist, a male, who will very briefly rule all nations with horrible brutality and an iron fist.

In a sense, the U.K.'s exit is a bit like Europa giving birth.  The "woman" has delivered.  This is why I think Brexit is one of many contemporary events pointing us to the nearness of a much greater deliverance: Chexit, the exit of the Church from the earth.

And the woman fled into the wilderness: according to the mythology of Europa, the woman was carried away to the wilderness of Crete on the back of Zeus.

A Week of Profound Prophetic Significance

Brexit is capping off a hugely historic week at the very end of a shocking month, but there is still more to come.  Consider all that has happened over the course of these last several days and what's coming around the corner:

Tuesday: the Deal of the Century was finally revealed, and one hour later the largest earthquake since last May shook Mar-a-Lago.

Wednesday: USMCA, the largest trade deal in American history that supplants NAFTA, was signed into law.

Friday (today): Brexit, which has been in the wings for three and a half years.

Saturday: an emergency Arab League summit will be held in Cairo to address the unveiled peace plan; also, President Trump may be acquitted in the ongoing impeachment trial.

Sunday: the annexation vote was originally scheduled for Sunday, but has been postponed until Tuesday at the earliest; of secular significance—the Super Bowl!

Monday: the Iowa caucuses will be held, which may determine the Democratic candidate for U.S. president.

Tuesday: the earliest possible date for Israeli annexation; also, Trump will hold his State of the Union address.

In the backdrop we see the rapid spread of the coronavirus around the world and one of the top five largest conflagrations in recorded world history.  Coronavirus itself has strange prophetic undertones, a fatal viral "venom" that originated in China, the country of the dragon.

China has been closely associated with the dragon for thousands of years, maybe even not long after Babel.  It is featured on pre-republic and pre-communist flags, on badges worn by soldiers thousands of years ago, on tombstones, murals, thrones, etc.  They even call dinosaurs "dragons" and dinosaur bones "dragon bones."

The red dragon, specifically, is in thousands of books, movies, and shows in China and is considered a personification of the People's Republic.  The association is so close, that traditional Chinese actually consider themselves descendants of the dragon and celebrate the dragon every 12 years (2024 will be the next "year of the dragon").




The World Health Organization, which just declared coronavirus a "Global Health Emergency," has a flag featuring a serpent on a pole.  The symbolism is written all over this worldwide debacle.  Satan is the venomous serpent whose bite brought about the Fall of Mankind, but the Son of God, who became sin for us, rescued us from Satan on the Cross, in a way reminiscent of how Moses lifted up a bronze serpent on a pole to rescue the Israelites:

God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
- 2 Corinthians 5:21


And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so it is necessary for the Son of Man to be lifted up, that everyone who is believing in Him may not perish, but may have continuous life...
- John 3:14–15




Corona is Latin for "crown."  The seven-headed dragon of Revelation 12 is wearing seven crowns on his heads, all the while he is attempting to devour the male child of the woman who is also wearing a crown.  As a matter of fact, the Latin word corona is used in Revelation 12:1 in the ancient Latin Vulgate.

While many recoil at types, shadows, patterns, and numbers, they testify to an absolutely sovereign God who is constantly speaking through His creation.

The heavens [are] recounting the glory of God, || And the expanse [is] declaring the work of His hands.  Day to day utters speech, || And night to night shows knowledge.  There is no speech, and there are no words.  Their voice has not been heard.  Their line has gone forth into all the earth, || And their sayings to the end of the world...
- Psalm 19:1–4 (LSV)


And certain of the Pharisees from the multitude said to Him, “Teacher, rebuke Your disciples”; and He answering said to them, “I say to you that if these will be silent, the stones will cry out!”
- Luke 19:39–40 (LSV)

  3. "Coronavirus itself has strange prophetic undertones, a fatal viral "venom" that originated in China, the country of the dragon."

    Which kind of prophetic undertones does this Wuhan virus have? Do I have to think about a pretrib financial and economic collapse by this virus, much worse than the one of 2008, kicking off pandemics by bacteria and viruses which thrive on weakened victims of the ongoing Wuhan virus outbreak?

    It could be that multinationals will decide to leave their production facilities from China to Europe and the Middle-East, giving Europe much more economic strength and speeding up the build-up of commercial Babylon from Revelations 17 and 18.

  6. Gary,

    I have always appreciated the way with which you see patterns, types and shadows. It is a creative analysis that is poetically aligned to the precision of scripture. This summary is no less.

    Very thought provoking.

    With all of these events and news soon to be behind us; how much longer until calls are made to begin construction of the third temple? I also wonder the state of archaeology in the City of David and if progress has been, or is yet to be, made in identifying the site of the Temple of David, the Temple of Solomon.

    Given the location of Gihon Spring I believe there is strong (if not specific) evidence that the temple complex was in the City of David and not on top of the mount itself. If it were found that the temple was in the City of David then there may be little to stop construction from beginning immediately.

    A MAJOR stumbling block to this would be Jewish tradition. The Temple Institute may have data on the preferred location of the coming temple. Even so, the truth is The Temple is easily found today in the hearts of those who abide in the Lord Jesus Christ. We who have been anointed of the Holy Spirit are the body of Christ and house the Holy of Holies within ourselves.

    With everything that we are may we declare the Lord's coming. The groaning and longing of our hearts and the testimony on our lips. Until the great Day of His coming for us, may we be ever vigilant to the opportunities to share the Gospel just one more time.

    IMHO, the next thing to be watching for is a green light to build the third temple. Even if it is located somewhere on the mount.

  8. Like the Mickey Mouse Club used to sing "now it's time to say goodbye.." well with that said I'm doing just that. I've watched this site in the past couple of years and the rollercoaster articles that have come with it. I felt in my spirit that I needed to speak up and say what's on my heart. I feel that many of the things you say are "prophetic" or "could be" prophetic 9/10 aren't. I find it difficult to swallow or accept that the Bible scripture is used to manipulate and twist to whatever this site is trying to push not to mention gematria and concordances. I still believe the "great sign" was not a sign and it's a cosmic event that happens all the time. The revelation 12 speaks about the birth of Jesus. Everything happening around the world is terrible and this is a fallen world in need of Jesus. I'm in the camp where I believe we need to endure all these things and our faith tested before going with Jesus. We need to saddle up because it's going to get bumpier and alot worse but I believe we'll be here next year and the following year after that. But again I'm probably the outsider on these things and on this site so I'll just leave gracefully. If I'm proven wrong I'll be right there with you all in heaven.... after all, we're all souled out for Christ! God bless!

    1. Is it just me, but I have noticed an uptick in troll activity ever since the terribly foolish and hypocritical article from Mark Galli. I have been regularly following this website for years and it just makes me wonder as I read a bunch of troll like comments especially in the past month or so, if new and special attention is being put forth by the Enemy to try to sway the Christians who visit here from sticking with a Biblical world view, as well as watching and perceiving the LORD's soon return for the Body of Christ. Just been wondering if anyone else is noticing an increase in what I suspect are Satanic attacks as evidenced by an increased flow of strange and even disparaging comments, often put forth from an anonymous source. There is an old saying, that the truth is stranger than fiction, and I can't help but believe I am seeing a manifestation of an increase in Satan's effort to attack the truth of the LORD's soon return to take us home and the signs that enable us to know the season of Jesus' return. Just saying.

    2. Looking up how is that trolling?and how can you say the person commenting had other intentions. While I don't agree with the articles on this page I can say that I have respect for my brother's and sisters in Christ and their point of views. Before you knock someone down just love and pray for them, let's not assume they aren't saved.

    3. Anonymous, how do you know it is not trolling? The comments were stated from a person saying she or he is a so called believer and his or her cute Mickey Mouse comment and critical claims speak for themselves. If you are a regular reader here you can't tell me that there has not been an uptick in comments like these. They started around the time of Mark Galli's junk. I noticed that certain people, often chiming in with an Anonymous label throw disparaging comments directed at the writers and even gentle commentators of this website. Take notice. What I said was not knocking him or her down, it was a comment that called the person out for their "Just felt it in my spirit..." a critical and divisive spirit.

    4. Looking up but why is it angering you so much? I haven't read the article you claim is the reason for the "uptick" and didn't know of it until you mentioned it. As far as the Mickey mouse reference don't see anything wrong with that either. I genuinely believe this person was just speaking his/her opinion whether you agree with it or not. What I do see is that anyone who goes against the rules of this site meaning against their beliefs or thoughts they get attacked or accused of "trolling" as you stated.We are called to love one another and be slow to anger! We're all Christians brothers and sisters in Christ. I am part of the minority who doesn't agree with the articles but I'm not on here being disrespectful. And for the record again I didn't read the article you so fervently believe is the reason why us minority folk on here are here commenting. I have seen comments of people disagreeing but don't see it as disrespect if anything everyone else attacks them. I'm not here to fight just read and discern and if that makes me part of your "troll" group than to each his own God bless and have a great day!

    6. Hi Anonymous, it's all about the delivery. I commented about a rude, ungrateful, and degrading delivery of a parting message, which is what trolling is about. Her "graceful",as she said, parting comment was more than just mere disagreement. Whether it was genuine trolling or not I don't know, but it sure was the type of delivery that makes a person wonder. Also, there is no article from this website I was referring to as you keep saying. It was the former editor of Christianity Today, Mark Galli, who wrote an absurd editorial that was counter to clear common sense in regards to President Trump and Evangelicals, and even Righteousness. Mark Galli wrote in such a way as to belie the true regard the vast majority of Evangelicals have for our current President. Even Franklin Graham pointed out that his own father Billy Graham, the great evangelist who began that magazine many decades ago, would not have agreed with Mark Galli's ignorant and false words. Since Mark Galli's contemptuous article I have noticed the "uptick" in bloggers (many who use the anonymous name as you do) whose comments are more troll-like than has been typical for this forum. Gary and the staff of Unsealed.org put in a tremendous amount of scholarly effort each day. They tirelessly serve the Body of Christ with upmost sincerity, gentleness, and undoubtedly they finance this huge enterprise that serves people like you and me. For a Christian to flippantly disparage the views of the writers is clearly unwarranted. The blogger I cited above really should have, after spending so much time here over the years, parted ways in a Christ-like manner rather than the way she did. If you choose not to see that then so be it. If it isn't trolling then it would appear that sadly some people have a rather immature understanding of the tremendous effort of Gary and the staff to provide a conduit of Holy Spirit guided insight into the most important event for the Body of Christ in our lifetime. An event that offers hope and encouragement for believers. An event that motivates us to be bolder witnesses to our family and neighbors with the Gospel of Jesus. Let's go in the peace of Jesus.

      25 Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father's name, they bear witness of me.

      26 But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you.

      27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:

      28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

      29 My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.

    3. The Trinity is the first code in the Bible. It is in the first three letters of the first two words of the Bible - Genesis 1:1

      Beth = Ben for Son
      Resh = Ruach for Spirit
      Aleph = Abba for Father

      And the Beth and Resh together spell Bar - another way to spell Son -

      and that is used in Psalm 2 - Kiss the Son - Kiss the Bar - Lest He be angry...

      So the Bible literally starts of with "The Son" and it is repeated twice in the first two words of the Torah...

      Hallelujah! Jesus is Lord -

      the first word Bereshith - In the Beginniing -

      the first three Hebrew words are Beth Resh Aleph

      The second word: Bara - made up of three Hebrew letters: Beth Resh Aleph

      Bara means "Created" and that word in Hebrew is only used of God.

      Third word: Elohim - "im" is a plural ending because there are three in one

      Three distinct person in One God -

      The forth word is a particle: Aleph Tau - the first and last Hebrew letters:

      As in A to Z - Alpah and Omega -

      Because the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are the Alpha and Omega...

      Jesus is Lord! Every knee will bow and every tongue confess that Jesus is Lord to the glory of God the Father.

      And everything was created by Him and FOR HIM...Colossians 1:16-18

    5. @anonymous 207

      Consider why you might anticipate the look on people's faces when they are proven wrong or you are proven right. And consider how that compares to Galatians 5:22-26. It sounds as if you're bent on being right, and not on being God's. Although you wish to please God, you may feel you fail to please Him 100%. And all those who try to work out their salvation by being as righteous as they can, experience this same struggle. And the truth is, it is the enemy who tells us to take matters into our own hands. Think about Adam and Eve and how the enemy tempted them. God's plan is for us to place our trust in Him, not our own understanding or ability. Proverbs 3:5-6. If you, anyone around you, or the voices speaking into your life are telling you that you have the answers and you can do this by some strict adherence to rules, then you are being trapped. That is the manipulator at work. God does not manipulate, fool, trick or confuse. And in fact God came into the world so that we could have a name for Him, and identity so that we could not be tricked. Jesus is the way the truth and the life. John 14:6. There are too many verses to list once you look at who Christ is to support that He is God. He is Lord, He is God's son and He is God. Similarly, the Holy Spirit is God. But each is a different aspect of God, yet fully God. We can not know God without Jesus, and we do not know His presence without the Holy Spirit. Would you expect an omniscient omnipresent, omnipotent God to be more easily understood? Do not let a person or organization tell you who Jesus is. Look at these verses and think about who you've been listening to. John20:28 John 6:62 John 14:6 Titus 2:13 1 Timothy 6:14-16

      And in order to understand the verse you referenced, notice that God's word clarifies it for you as it always will. God's word confirms God's word. John 14:28 cf. Philippians 2:3-7

      Jesus is Lord and the only way for him to be the Lord is if He is God. The only way for him to have forgiven sin, is for him to have been God. He rose from the grave because he is God. He is one with the father because He is God. John 1:1-5,14

    1. OPENING OUR BIBLES TO (GENESIS 1:26)

      ...we see the following from the LXX (Septuagint),

      26 And God said, Let us make man
      according to our image and likeness,
      and let them have dominion over the
      fish of the sea, and over the flying
      creatures of heaven, and over the
      cattle and all the earth, and over
      all the reptiles that creep on
      the earth.


      This is how God rendered our creation translated from the original Paleo-Hebrew texts into Greek by the scribes in Alexandria. This is the basically the oldest version of scripture we have. The LXX or 70.

      God refers to Himself in the plural. Why?

      Hint: You'll find the answer in (Genesis 1:1) in the original Hebrew.

  12. Feels like there's a version of Pascal's wager here...

    If He is God, and you say He is just a man... you've insulted Him...
    If He is God, and you proclaim it... You've respected Him.
    If He is just a man, and you say He is God, He can correct you and say 'No, but my Father is.'
    If He is just a man, and you say He is just a man... I'm not sure what His response there is...
    If He is both God and man... I'm not sure it matters either way what you call Him beyond Lord...?

    I'll believe He is whatever He says He is... and He said 'Before Abraham was, I AM' and 'If you've seen me, you have seen the Father...' Therefore to me, He is God, The Grand/Genuine Original Designer (GOD), until He tells me otherwise. And He would know that I believe this to be respectful of Him and His position.

  15. It's not difficult to discern which princes (nations) are lined-up satanically. Examine closely the nations' histories, cultures, the nature of its peoples. Each prince is thus uncovered as to character and temperament. No need to mess with Solomon's Keys.

    For example, China is the spearhead nation of the Red Dragon, as the OP suggests. However, a review of the geo-morphism of other countries (and continents) reveals satan's influence upon most of the East, an influence that long pre-dated China.

    Many nations, and the African continent itself, thus speak volumes silently. Africa -- the Dark Continent, the Serpent Continent -- is satan in profile, replete with massive horn, Somalia (so Malia). Obama's child, a daughter of Babylon. A study of Somalia's past and present spiritual/civil condition tells you about what you'd expect out of a sharpened weapon of satan . . . many of whose citizens were imported into America by, yup guess who, Barry the boy of Belial.

    You can make the same study out of Japan, which is a two-headed dragon, sharing one body. Japan is almost empty of Christianity, and persecuted Christians greatly in the recent past, not to mention torturing Allied P.O.W.s, one of whom was my uncle, and I didn't appreciate it, nor is it over.

    Point being, the Eastern world has been under power of the Great Dragon almost since human beginnings, and many, many lesser serpents and dragons are scattered and (literally) entrenched across the Old World as national principalities, and sometimes as larger satanic blocs (as in the example of Africa, which contains many territorial princes).

    This is one reason why the Great Wars to come occur in the East -- it's the home-base, the power-central, of the most potent and rooted demons on the planet. The greatest of those wars will take place in the Jezreel Valley, on the Plains of Jezebel. Not a coincidence. Gotta root 'em out where they stand.

    Excellent OP. Thank you.

Pray that God would expose to them and the world the deception of the WatchTower. Nearly 9 million of them are told how to act and what to believe by a group of self-righteous powerdrunk wolves who also need God. It is a case of the blind leading the blind. We fight against principalities. JWs are doing as they are told out of tremendous fear and guilt. May God open their eyes to His son Jesus who is God who died for them as a perfect sacrifice. In Jesus Name let us pray together. Amen

  18. This is just a thought I had yesterday.......we know the end times are described as being like in the days of Noah. So reading Noah's account in Genesis, God actually tells Noah 7 days in advance that the flood is coming. He knew for 7 days exactly when it would start. So I'm wondering if that 7 day warning is upon us now? Also, we know antichrist starts the 7 years of tribulation by signing a peace treaty with Israel. What if, the revealing of President Trump's (the last Trump) Deal of the Century Peace Treaty with Israel and the so-called palestinians was the moment our 7 days of advance warning came for the Rapture of the church. I do not believe the Rapture is sign less. The Bible says only the people of the night, not of the day will be taken by surprise. We are of the day so we know our time is short. That earthquake that occurred right after the "Deal" was revealed was a 7.7, God spoke through that event, even shook Mar-a-logo! We are 3.5 days after the reveal. Do we have 3.5 days left before the Rapture? I hope so:)

  22. Religion says look at yourself. Grace says look at the Lord Jesus Christ. Religion says look at your works. Grace says look at the finished work of the Lord Jesus Christ for our sins. Religion says you must give God your life. Grace says God gave you his life, just receive. Religion says you must love God. Grace says God loves you. Religion says God comes and goes based upon your behavior. Grace says once saved I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. Religion says sin can remove you from salvation. Grace says once saved you are a purchased possession sealed by the Holy Spirit of God. Religion is dead and can not give life. Grace is the Lord Jesus Christ and all he gives is life! <3 Salvation is not an earned reward but a free gift from God <3 we do not deserve Ephesians 2:8-9 1 Corinthians 15:1-4;1:18, KJV <3 ✝<3 It's not what we do, but what Christ has done for us that saves us. If you’re trusting in anything other than the finished work of Christ then you’re trusting in yourself instead of trusting in Christ alone. Salvation is not based on what we're doing for God, but what God has done for us. Our performance doesn't merit salvation. No amount of works can contribute to salvation. Satan tricks people into thinking that they're saved based on their behavior, the problem then becomes is that people trust in their ability to save themselves or keep themselves saved. No one can keep themselves saved, only Jesus does. Many people want to play a part in their salvation by trying to do their best, when in reality, our best could never be good enough. It comes down to this, either you trust in Christ's finished work, that He died to pay for your sins by shedding His blood was buried and rose again the third day according to the Scriptures for your justification or you trust what you’re doing. What Christ did was enough. IT IS FINISHED the question is. Will you receive it? Believe the gospel ALONE. Romans 4:5King James Version (KJV) "But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness." Titus 3:5King James Version (KJV) "Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;" Ephesians 2:8-9King James Version (KJV) "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast." Galatians 2:16King James Version (KJV) "Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified." 1 Corinthians 15:3-4 King James Version (KJV) 3 "For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:" 1 Corinthians 1:18 King James Version (KJV) "For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God."

    Heres a question for all you trinitarians. Can we all agree that Gods word cannot contradict itself?
    First of all I am not a 'JW' but they are not wrong about everything. Consider these two scriptures. In Hebrews 4:15 it says that Jesus was tempted like we are yet without sin.
    Ok, now look at James 1:13. It says that God cannot be tempted nor tempt he any man.
    Obviously if Jesus is God and God is Jesus we have a contradiction here.
    Would anyone care to explain? Im all eyes.

    1. Jesus is fully God and fully man. As man, he was tempted in all ways we are. As God, He was not tempted. It's a dual nature. The born again Christian also has a dual nature. We are born again of the Spirit and cannot sin (John 3, 1 John 3:9) and until we die, we have the flesh that does sin (1 John 1:8-10). Hope this helps. God bless!

  24. 3985. peirazó Why don’t you try looking up the original GREEK word used ? The word used for tempted is 3985. peirazó which, in that context, means a test.
    But there is another way this word is used in the Scriptures. Sometimes it simply refers to a trial or a test. Sin is not the objective here but rather, an opportunity to prove one’s character or intent.

  26. This was not the purpose of the Spirit of God, however. When Christ was led by the Spirit into this confrontation with Satan in the wilderness, the Spirit was not watching with fear and trepidation wondering if Christ would come through. It was true that the Son of God had taken upon Himself a human nature, but it was also true that He still retained His divine nature. Furthermore, this union was accomplished in one Person. So, the Spirit knew full well that Jesus, as God, could not sin.

  27. So, even though Christ felt the full force of Satan’s temptation in His human nature (which is peccable), He did not and could not sin because He was also God (which is impeccable). The temptation was real but the ability to overcome it was infinite. As a Person therefore, He was definitely impeccable. The temptation was not a roll of the dice in the wilderness to see who would win—Satan or Christ. It was a demonstration of Christ’s power as the Son of God to be our adequate Savior. Satan meant it for evil but God meant it for good—the two uses of “peirazo.” ■

    2. Think about that verse you quoted a little more 207 as it proves the opposite of what you are trying to make it say.

      Humanity is made up of male and female. The head of the woman is the man but that doesn't mean that the woman is any less 'human' than man or any less important. It simply speaks of different roles and a willing submission.

      The Godhead is made up of Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The head of Christ is the Father but that doesn't mean that Jesus is any less God than the Father or any less important. It simply speaks of different roles and a willing submission.

      There has always been a willing submission within the Godhead. The Son comes to only do the will of His Father, not His own. The Holy Spirit comes to bring glory to the Son, not Himself. Yet each is called 'God' in Scripture. Look at it this way - God is love 207 (1 John 4:8) and love 'does not seek its own' (1 Cor 13:5). So this submission within the trinity is in perfect alignment with the very character of God. And the craziest thought of all is that Jesus, who is God (John 1:1) was even willing to submit to the place of utter weakness and death at the hands of mankind for you and me. Now that is submission and that is love!

      God Bless.

      Yes , it's talking about authority. Have a look at the following-
      Phillipians 2:5-8

      "5Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus:

      6Who, existing in the form of God,
      did not consider equality with God
      something to be grasped,a
      7but emptied Himself,
      taking the form of a servant,
      being made in human likeness.
      8And being found in appearance as a man,
      He humbled Himself
      and became obedient to death—
      even death on a cross."

      He submitted under authority as a Son would His Father.

      Equality with God- He already had it therefore no need to attain it- and if God the Son came under authority how much more should we?

  29. Exactly as I expected. Still cherry picking because the original Greek blows your heresies to bits. Won’t go near the Greek, will ya ? Too hard ? Can’t handle the Truth ? Anyone even remotely attempting to “rightly divide” the Word of God goes to the original language because Greek words are so specific and have numerical equivalents. That’s why God chose Greek to have the NT written in and Hebrew also has numerical equivalents.

    I know what you’re gonna try next, (whiny voice) The word Rapture is not in the Bible. Right ? But it is in the Latin Bible and the original Greek is harpazo which is “catching away” but you need not be concerned about that.

  39. Jesus Christ spoke with all authority the Father's words. That's the meaning of the Trinity. Not that Jesus himself was God. Otherwise why would he have said, "There's no one good but God"? Or why would John have written "No one has seen God at any time"? The Trinity is a metaphor that describes how Jesus' words come with the FULL authority of the Father. That he was not just "another prophet". Prophets in ancient Israel had no authority to fulfill/transcend the Torah in the way Jesus did. He updated rules regarding the Sabbath, dietary laws, marriage, etc. Isaiah or Ezekiel never were granted the authority to do that. Let's also examine the NT's history. The synoptic gospels were the first to be written, likely based on Mark, the earliest. Nowhere in the synoptic gospels is Jesus quoted claiming himself to be God. It's very likely that the later Gospel of John, where such claims were quoted, is less historically accurate than the synoptic gospels. Don't you think Matthew, Mark and Luke would have included such an explosive claim in their gospels if the historical Jesus really had said this?

    And here's another thing. Do realize that there are two creation stories and two versions of the Noah's ark story in Genesis. There are different accounts of the resurrection events. What is this telling us? That the Bible is not necessarily to be read as an accurate historical record. Yes there is much history included in the Bible, but I read the miracle stories allegorically. This is literature, not fact. The point being, one can view the Trinity as a doctrine expressing the literary truth that Jesus's words come with the full authority of God even though the historical man Jesus of Nazareth probably never claimed to be God's equal. God "wrote" the Bible using many hands. He is the master of our matrix.

    As I said before I donot go along with everything that the witnesses believe. Even on the topic of the trinity, they dont have that completely right either. I am not a Jehovah Witness. I try to find agreement where I can, even with this site. Some of I agree with, some I do not.

    Heres another scripture you have all read many times but I dont think you have really considered in light of the trinity.

    ' But of that day and hour knows no man, no not the angels of heaven, BUT MY FATHER ONLY.

    This is telling us that the Father God knows things that Jesus his Son doesnt know.
    If Jesus is God shouldnt he know the day and hour?

    One more consideration. What is so impressive about God, the one mentioned in Genesis 1:1 walking on the water?
    This is the God who by his word brought everything we see into existence, creating heaven and earth.
    What is so difficult about him walking on the water? Nothing.

    The fact that a man could have the level of faith required to do that is impressive.

    7. @Anon, @Zachary, and others: this article has nothing whatsoever to do with the Trinity. Please find a more relevant article to discuss on if you want to, or join the discussion board and ask a question. It's one thing to discuss, but dropping these arguments on an unrelated article tells me the intention is probably not actual discussion.


      To the specific points:


      "This is telling us that the Father God knows things that Jesus his Son doesnt know."

      Yes—while Jesus was in a fleshly body, having humbled Himself from His glory in Heaven. He had the ability of omniscience, but willfully set it aside to experience human life.


      "What is so impressive about God, the one mentioned in Genesis 1:1 walking on the water?"

      Because God is impressive overall, and worthy of all glory and honor. Jesus' powers and miracles are another testimony to His deity.


      "Otherwise why would he have said, 'There's no one good but God'?"

      During His ministry, many were following Him, recognizing that He was a good man and a good teacher who had come from God, but they were not willing to acknowledge that He was God in the flesh, as you are doing, so, as is widely understood, He made the point: "You call Me good, but no one is truly good, but God." In other words, if He is good as He claims, then why not make the obvious conclusion?


      As for Jesus' claims to deity and the NT authors' claims about Him being God, they are manifold to the point that even many of the most anti-Christian biblical scholars like Bart Ehrman have conceded. Outside of JW "scholarship," the Gospel of John is universally regarded as repeatedly claiming that Jesus was/is the pre-existent God. Among the epistles and Revelation, they are replete with references to Jesus' divinity. Attacks against Jesus divinity center almost exclusively on the synoptic gospels, but they, too, claim He is divine.

      Does the Gospel of Mark Present Jesus as God?

  41. Jesus is God and man. "In the beginning was the word, the word was with God and the word was God" John 1:1. Jesus' greatest achievement and act of love as God was to become a man, God incarnate, in order to save us. No ordinary human being can do what he did -- live a perfect sinless life so as to be a perfect sacrifice for our sins. When he was on earth, he did not access his God-given rights ("Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage" Phillipians 2:6), and did most things through faith in the Father so as to be an example for us to follow. If u do not believe Jesus is God, then you do not know him nor can u believe in his ability to save u. In that case, what is the basis for your salvation? Your works? Nobody goes to the Father except through the Son. Those who have seen the Son have also seen the Father.

    ANOTHER 3.5 PARALLEL--You wrote:
    "The red dragon, specifically, is in thousands of books, movies, and shows in China and is considered a personification of the People's Republic. The association is so close, that traditional Chinese actually consider themselves descendants of the dragon and celebrate the dragon every 12 years (2024 will be the next "year of the dragon")."
    IF the 7 year Trib were to begin (for ease of calculation) JUNE 2020, the first half would be completed by the end of 2023 which would line up 2024 perfectly with The Year of the Red Dragon coinciding with The Great Tribulation (or second 3.5 years of The Trib).

    Corona also has its roots in the Greek word "koronis" translated "wreath or garland". Came upon this tidbit also from Wikipedia: "Coronis is a textual symbol found in ancient Greek papyri that was used TO MARK THE END of an entire work or of a major section in poetic and prose texts."

      "Brad, above you wrote,"God is setting up the chess pieces for the most dramatic moments in world history. We are close. We have all kinds of proof of that, and the fact that most of the world and even other Christians are oblivious to it doesn't make it once bit less true. MARANATHA!"

      Nora had mentioned Jesus tells us the last days will be as those of Noah and Lot--people eating, drinking, marrying, building, etc. Today I was thinking on that again and remembered what I wrote back in October 2019 about one of my tsunami dreams:

      "June 20, 2014--Last night I had a second dream of a great wave. In this dream I was at home meeting with a couple of workmen who were hired to paint and prepare the new home (new to us) we had recently purchased. Although I was at home in the dream, the house did not look like the one we currently live in.

      . . . In 2014 my husband Tom and I had no plans on moving, but in 2019 that changed for we bought a home we are remodeling. The house is currently in the process of being painted both inside and out!

      Of course, I do not know for certain if that dream means we are in the time of a catastrophe coming to the East Coast or not." https://lynmelvin.blogspot.com/2019/10/5780-year-of-mouth-and-birthing.html excerpt

      UPDATE: January 31, 2020--we ARE LIVING IN THAT HOUSE NOW--we moved a week before Christmas. We still have some minor work to do on the house AND WE ARE STILL PAINTING IT!
      Bob Barber (End Time Dream and Vision YTC) in one of his 2019 (I think) videos stated that ALL the tsunami dreams/visions people shared with him showed the RAPTURE occurring simultaneously with the tsunami!"

  45. Caduceus as a symbol of medicine
    The caduceus is the traditional symbol of Hermes and features two snakes winding around an often winged staff. It is often mistakenly used as a symbol of medicine instead of the Rod of Asclepius, especially in the United States. The two-snake caduceus design has ancient and consistent associations with trade, eloquence, negotiation, alchemy and wisdom. The modern use of the caduceus as a symbol of medicine became established in the United States in the late 19th and early 20th century as a result of documented mistakes, misunderstandings and confusion.Wikipedia

  46. Beloved Family--Thought I had better share this also. . .

    A Sister in Christ sent me an email that had been forwarded to her:

    "Dr friend from CA says people in China are coming out healed from hospital

    Also HAVING VIT C is IMPORTANT
    TAKE 1000 mg EVERY HOUR TILL YOU GET LOOSE STOOLS THEN STOP & CUT BACK. Someone else said VIT C
    VERY EFFECTIVE taken in bigger doses, when you first get it. . ."

    She also sent an attachment showing that the Coronavirus, along with AIDS, SARS, and some others have US Patents. This didn't surprise me because almost every country has its own patent law, and a person desiring a patent in a particular country must make an application for patent in that country, in accordance with the requirements of that country.

    But look what I did discover starting at Google Patents:
    https://patents.google.com/patent/US10130701B2/en?oq=10130701
    The coronavirus was patented by The Pirbright Institute which is associated with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation https://www.gatesfoundation.org/How-We-Work/Quick-Links/Grants-Database/Grants/2013/11/OPP1098099

    This is NO conspiracy theory here, folks--just in your face facts! Bill Gates IS associated with this virus (and perhaps its outbreak) and with implementing ID2020 which is either The Mark of the Beast or linked with it. We Gotta Fly This Year!!!

But when she told me they scared my cat Brittany, I lost it, I got on the phone and left a message for them that I would send the police after them and then they stopped. They can’t keep any tracts we might give them so they never learn the truth. I pray for family trapped by them.

  52. This comment regards the Works and Salvation dilemma. I'm just wondering, I have always believed in a Gospel where you can lose your salvation if you do not abide in the faith! However, over the course of the past couple of weeks I have been reading the book of Romans and see the eternal security that Paul talks about, within the NASB. However my friend today brought it to my attention something called the Youngs Literal Translation, where someone can lose their salvation if we look at the original literal translation of the Hebrew and Greek. I've been following unsealed for about the past 4 years, looking at the end time studies. However, from anyone's perspective what do they think of the Youngs Literal Translation and the idea of us having to abide in Christ? Thank you just want an answer because we all know eternity depends on it lol

    1. Honestly, it's a matter of debate if "once saved, always saved" is true (I tend to fall here) or so f you can lose your salvation. It's pretty academic rather than practical since if you are really saved, you probably aren't looking to get unsaved! The question is almost always in regards to someone else (are They saved?).

      Scriptures can be brought out to support both views. The important point is that the unsaved need salvation, whether they've never been saved to begin with or whether they turned away from the faith.

      There are also problems with each view. For "once saved always saved", you can have people who think they said a prayer one day and now they've got a "get out of hell free card" even if they live like they're unsaved. There's security in knowing you (or your loved ones) are safe, but a temptation to sin because it "doesn't matter".

      On the other side of the aisle, you haven't those who believe you can lose your salvation. Their problem is a worry that they're always on the brink of bring unsaved! What if, right before they die, they've done something that crosses some unknown line and now they're going to hell! This group is much more likely to take casual sin very seriously as it can be cause for damnation. And it can tend to a works-based view of salvation a nice something you DO can disqualify you.

    2. Paul was convinced that nothing could keep us from the love of God. Not even the state of our flesh. I would hate to spend my entire life loving and serving God, only to have a stroke or something invalidate everything...

      If our works can't save us, I don't think they can unsave us either... And if Genuinely believing once is enough to allow the Holy Spirit of God in... I don't know how you could kick Him out...

    3. Hi, unknown, I would like to suggest looking at the website, expreacherman.com. I have learned a great deal. It is a fellowship of believers. There is discussion about the plan of salvation, videos, links to helpful Gospel presentations, like, https://www.cleargospel.org/, etc.

      They definitely believe in eternal salvation by Grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone. The in depth explanations are so valuable to me. I hope this helps.

      Many blessings!

    5. Being afraid of loosing your salvation can lead to do good works to maintain your salvation. Is that the reason why Roman Catholics believe in a salvation of faith in Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour and Lord AND doing good works? James also mentions about doing good works as a proof of salvation.

      Delete
    6. I think the main reason folks get into it over OSAS is that they're not looking at the correct dispensation. Salvation is ALWAYS based on faith. “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast” (Ephesians 2:8–9).
      Prior to the Church Age (now) and after the Rapture of the Church, folks had/will have to keep the commandments and WORK at maintaining their faith. NOT work at their salvation.
      This is what the Olivet Discourse parables refer to - maintaining one's faith post-church.
      After the Rapture, God will give blatantly OBVIOUS signs of His presence in the form of foretold judgements. It won't take much to believe that God exists. However, faith in and obedience to God will be necessary to endure during a time of horrific persecution, judgement, and even death.

      Delete
    7. I just can't leave it alone...
      MANY have heard it before: saying that one has to WORK at salvation is the same as saying that God needs OUR help to save us; that we are active participants in the process - WE'RE NOT! (See Ephesians 2:8-9 quoted above.)
      Or, that Christ's WORK on the cross wasn't enough - it WAS! (Romans 5:8-10 + MORE)
      NOTHING you or I or anyone can ever do will ever be good enough to SAVE us!
      (Remember, every one who tries to get by on their own "good" works will be judged accordingly.)
      That's what Salvation refers to: KNOWING and confessing that we are sinners in NEED OF A SAVIOR!
      WORKS come in out of gratitude for our salvation and wanting to please and honor God with how we live our lives. And, even though we often fail to live up to His standards, because we are SAVED, when we ask Him to, He forgives us. He doesn't disown us.
      * * * * *
      With all that's been going on in the world, especially these past few years, I'm of a mind that ALL THIS is just the staging area for what's to come (ETERNITY is a loooong time or no time, especially compared to a 60-70 year life span).
      Life - what's it all about? One thing. Coming to know that we are all sinners in need of a Savior and accepting Christ's death on the cross as atonement ( a one time payment) for our sins. That's it in a nutshell.
      Whatever we "work" at after we are saved has NO bearing on our salvation per se. Sanctification, yes, salvation no.
      * * * * *
      Post Church, that is, AFTER the Rapture, believers will have to work at maintaining their salvation. They will NOT have to work FOR it. Obedience to God's commandments and not falling in line with the anti-Christ's political regime (e.g., we all know about NOT taking the mark of the beast) will not be easy in the face of intense persecution. However, it'll be much better to lose your head for refusing than to lose eternal life.

  53. Hi! This is my first time commenting. First, thank you for the articles and updates. I found Unsealed in the Summer of 2017 and I've been truly blessed by this site. I haven't read all of the comments so I'm not sure if someone already touched on this, but I've been wondering alot about the significance of the year 2024. That is the year we are supposed to have the eclipse that marks the "X" over the U.S., right? I find it interesting that 2024 is also the next Chinese "year of the dragon". Just kind of thinking out loud. Anyway, thanks again for all you guys do! God bless you and your families!

    1. Joe,

      I think you are onto something. Especially considering Trump's plan is a 4 year plan to statehood, with a 10 year economic incentive plan in the works as well.
      As Gary made clear, God will not tolerate Israel's land being divided. So we should expect something from God to break up this plan before statehood is fully implemented.

      Sorry to have taken so long to address your question but the weekends get a little busy for me. You ask, "about the significance of the year 2024?" That is an interesting question.

      24. Monday, April 8, 2024, Total Solar Eclipse (GASE 2.0) Omer Day 14

      (CD#) above refers to Creation Day. I omitted Omer Days save Omer Day 14.

      The first Sabbath Day is known today as Shabbat Ha-Gadol or "The Great Sabbath". This is the first Sabbath Day of creation, the seventh day that God rested. Shabbat Ha-Gadol is part one of a two-part Sabbath that ends with Shabbat Shuba (Sabbath of Return). This Sabbath is the first Saturday after Yom Teruah (Feast of Trumpets) and Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement).

      These are the days and events taking place on the Ecclesiastic or Spiritual calendar prior to and including the Great American Solar Eclipse 2.0. What on the Civil Hebrew calendar you ask?

      Saturday, March 23, 2024, Adar II 13-14, Purim, 5784 AM
      Sunday, March 24, Adar II 14-15, Purim, 5784 AM


      So what's this all mean? It means that Saturday, March 23rd marks the beginning of Purim -- a time of great celebration, parties and gift giving even among secular Jews. It also happens to mark Shabbat Ha-Gadol (The Great Sabbath or first Sabbath of Creation), Jordan River Crossing of Israel into the promised land and Erev Pesach (Passover-eve).

      Okay, if you're still with me them subtract 1,260-days from Saturday, March 23, 2024. What do you get? What day is that on the Jewish calendars? (Civil & Spiritual) Try subtracting 1,290-days from Sunday, March 31, 2024. What do you find on the Civil and Spiritual calendars?

      Hmmm...I hope you have your Bible handy!

      Now, if you've followed me all the way through...what do you think the significance of the Great American Solar Eclipse 2.0 *may* be?

      This is, IMHO, only one piece of the puzzle.

      Happy hunting,

If our timeline was long, he’s doing horrific damage to evangelical Christianity, and I’m betting that no more than about 10% see it happening. If our timeline was long, the recoil from Trumpism would cost more than any gain.

    6. I am sooooo glad that President Trump is our duly elected President! To the Anonymous writer just above who thinks otherwise, you have to ask yourself would Hillary have been a better president? The answer to any Christian who considers the fruit of both these people's works would be a resounding, NO!... In fact, Anonymous, since President Trump is going to be the next republican candidate in 2020 your contempt for him would have you choosing any of the democratic contenders. Last time I checked, they are all COMPLETELY GLOBALISTIC AND SELF-SERVING to say the least, and that means they are the pawns of the Devil, and you as a Christian should be able to understand where that is going to take America. Seriously, Anonymous, to speak like you do brings into question what your criteria for a good leader is. I hope you don't rely on news sources like CNN or MSN etc. Can't you see the extreme bias there? The House impeachment process was a TOTAL FRAUD. It should not be hard to realize that President Trump is infinitely better than Hillary would have been. It should not be hard to realize that President Trump will be FAR better than any of the democrats. Believers actually have to make sure they are using a Biblical world view rather than a world view based on the prince of this world. Notice how the global Antichrist kingdom is taking quick shape from the likes of Hillary and her many democratic counterparts. It should not be hard to see. Like I said a few days ago, it sure seems like there has been a spike in troll commentators masquerading as born-again believers. The uptick seems to have begun around the Mark Galli junk. I seriously can't help but wonder if the Enemy is sending people into evangelical websites in an attempt to sway potential voters away from President Trump in the upcoming election. The truth is stranger than fiction. Although Hillary is history (I hope) she is profoundly against GOD, whereas Donald Trump actually supports Christians by protecting our constitutional rights which were being trampled by Obama and his kind. The Democrats are waging war against anything truly of GOD, so to direct people away from President Trump is to aide the Enemy. It should be really simple to understand that. Donald Trump actually attempts to honor the fact that America was founded with a STRONG belief in the GOD of the Holy Bible. Look around Anonymous at all the people creating the terrible trouble, it's because they have turned away from loving the truth, from loving GOD. For you to promote a democrat is counter to Christianity. Some people posing as born again Christians (Mark Galli and his kind) could not care less about that and would have us follow them in support of people who have a hatred for the truth. Actually, it all comes down to either loving or hating the truth. We are in the very last part of this age. This is the generation that does not love the truth. The comment above seriously represents those that would embrace any of the next democratic candidates (all are liars and ego maniacs to say the least) instead of a person who actually stands up for the citizens of this country including babies who are still in the womb.

    7. I suspect Trump is on the same globalist NWO team as Hillary. These people have a problem-reaction-solution process they conduct to condition peoples' minds. Trump has been the problem, and the NWO will probably be the "solution". Christians will be persecuted by claims that they hate LGBT, immigrants and women who get abortions. The NWO will be the "love" that counteracts that "hate". It will be a false delusion but the Bible tells us it will be an extremely powerful one that will take in many people.

    3. Kris, nice to meet you. -We shouldn't! -but sadly a time loop of some form appears to be in the works for those left behind who weren't taken, as we see in the movie G-D and its more modern counterpart Edge of Tomorrow, (live, die, repeat). Scripture speaks of men seeking death but it escapes them. Once one enters the tribulation period, there will be no escape. That much is clear. The Lord is not mocked, and He knows many will try 'The easy way out'.

      1Thess 5:3 gives us the decree if you will,
      " For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape"

      Also
      Rev 9:6 "And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them."

      Desire to die, Very sobering.

      Likely a form of physical death with waking up again, on repeat, as described in the parables we are witnessing in large production movies, these "warnings" if you will- itwill happen to those trapped within the tribulation's snare, (as Christ said it would come "as a snare upon all those who dwell on the Earth.")

      Luke 21:35
      "35 For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth."

      A very sobering reminder for us all to look unto the escape, while there is time, to our bridegroom, our beloved, Jesus Christ for the promise of His coming and our removal in the Rapture.

      Interesting parallel - the very FIRST twilight zone to air captured this same concept of live, die, repeat long before any other recent movie/film! Its an interesting watch and many prophetic 'signals' throughout.

      Films often have prophetic overtones and messages which the enemy will likely use in the court of Heaven one day as LEGAL EVIDENCE that 'even he' warned of what was coming and no one would believe.
      Warnings are everywhere- no excuses that sort of thing.

      Eyes on Christ and escape it all! We need to watch and pray-

      Its a trap!

      It is so sad to hear about Rush! I pray that he is saved, and for his health.

      Many blessings to you and yours!

    8. Blessings Lori and thank you very much. Rush’s brother David is a Born Again Christian. He could be a preacher if you listen to him. Rush has talked about Jesus on his broadcast and how Jesus is the Only Way to Heaven. He doesn’t mention his faith much on his show but thanks God often. I am praying for him. I am still in shock at hearing him say “advanced lung cancer.” He’s very special to many of us. He’s brilliant and so funny. And nobody can fool him. I know the Rapture is soon. You see the 360 billion locusts devouring Africa and the Middle East ? Incredible. The peace plan has been released. It’s bad.

      Come quickly, Lord Jesus. We love you ! Maranatha!!!

    9. This might sound weird but, somehow, I feel that Rush getting sick is another sign our time here is short. He has been the number one voice of conservatism for well over 30 years and now he gets sick ? The timing along with everything else going on. There’s a video at Revelation12dotcom showing the twitching uncontrollably that accompanies the virus. This outbreak is much worse than they are telling us.

    10. Thank you, Archangel. It is such a blessing to hear that David Limbaugh is a born again Christian! I know he will be witnessing to his brother, if he is not already saved. Rush is very special and important to our culture freedom. It is very, very sad. I will be in prayer, as well.

      It is amazing what is going on in this world in the past month, alone! I had no idea the locust situation was so widespread. The peace plan is very interesting. Looks like Jared wants to go ahead with it, according to Revelation 12dotcom, as well.

      It is such a blessing to have fellowship of like-minded believers in these perilous days!

    11. Blessings Lori. David Limbaugh is an attorney and I first read his book on Obama about his crimes. Then he wrote another book about the myriad laws broken when Christ was on trial. Then he was a guest on Hannity and the way he spoke about the Lord was so eloquent and powerful. Rush’s family is made up of lawyers and judges. I am sure, as zealous as David is for the Lord, that he will be witnessing to Rush.

      That peace plan is awful. And so many Pastors are endorsing it or not giving correct info.

      God’s Holy Word is the Final Word. This plan divides Jerusalem. Zechariah says those who burden themselves with Jerusalem shall be “cut in pieces.” Exodus 23 “Thou shalt make no Covenant with them.” Isaiah 26 says “The treacherous dealer dealeth treacherously.” God made an Eternal Covenant with Abraham. This plan violates it ! 70% of Judea and Samaria is given to the “Palestinians.” 1 Thes 5:3 “For when they say peace and safety sudden destruction cometh on them and they will not escape.” This plan is not 80 pages. It’s 181 pages and quotes the Koran and doesn’t quote the Holy Bible even once ! Jerusalem is mentioned in the Holy Bible over 700 times. The Koran NEVER mentioned Jerusalem once ! The Arabs Holy Cities are Mecca and Medina. The Arabs have NO legal, historical or biblical claim on Jerusalem. Pastor Steve Cioccolanti is completely wrong. On every aspect, he is listening to Trump NOT God.

      Yes, so much happening. I am starting to feel we are getting closer to almost knowing when the Rapture is by watching Israel. If they form a govt then they can sign the deal. If not, then war or something is going to happen. Israel has agreements with Cyprus and Crete and are building a pipeline to Europe that Putin is not going to be happy about. This virus may double. We will have to keep watching. Revelation12dotcom has great info. I don’t know his name but he mentioned March 26 on the biblical calendar being the start of Passover. His videos are very informative so much that I could see what other Pastors are not telling their flocks about.

      Blessings to you Lori and your family. I believe Jesus will heal Rush or Rush will be with us in the Rapture. He has over 20 million listeners and I bet many of them are Born Again Christians who will be sending up many prayers for Rush. He’s family after all.

  59. From ChristianPolitics.org.uk
    It's always a good idea to get the "local" perspective:

    "The democratic imperative: a Christian case for Brexit
    Dr Adrian Hilton is a conservative academic, theologian, author and educationalist, currently based at Oxford University. Here he writes about why he believes the UK should leave the EU.

    The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is fixed in Europe – by tectonic-geographic reality and socio-cultural history. These constitute our inescapable frameworks of identity. No rational Christian Brexit-er (or #BeLeaver) is talking about the UK “leaving Europe”: it is a lazy figure of speech, which plays to the seismic apocalypse of those who seek to induce terror into the debate. Nor is any Christian advocating that we cease working with our neighbours, or that we want the UK to become “detached and self-regarding”, as Lord Deben ungraciously persists in caricaturing the Leave position.

    Europe is made of up around 50 independent states; the European Union of 28. Is every European state that’s not a member of the EU “detached and self-regarding”? Are they unwilling to work through diplomatic channels with other European states for peace, justice and the pursuit of the common good? Are they incapable of doing so? No, of course not. We’re all for loving our neighbour: we just have a problem when that neighbour presumes to tell us how much fish we can eat; how many hours we can spend gardening; how much tax we must pay on electricity, and what colour we ought to paint the front door.

    European civilisation is imbued with notions of Christian morality and the values of the Enlightenment. It is diverse, organic, syncretic and all-encompassing. After centuries of internecine warfare, the continent finally came to recognise that this religio-cultural homogeneity offered a foundation for peace and prosperity, and so expressions of Christian democracy began to develop which drew together the fractious and heterogeneous strands of national allegiance to forge a new progressive identity for the modern era.

    But that identity has been hijacked by an aggressive, coercive, supra-national secularism of categorical imperatives which gnaw at the threads of Europe’s carefully-woven patchwork of civilisations. Or perhaps that’s the way it was designed and planned. The European Union is not a benign fraternal association based on cooperation and collaboration: it is an anti-democratic, bureaucratic, political union which is incrementally imposing an entire corpus of diktats and directives that are antithetical to centuries of the British democratic tradition and common law. It may have begun with the noblest of Christian motives – that is, peace and reconciliation – but you only have to look at what uniform “economic governance” has done to the people of Greece to understand that the EU is fast becoming a threat to peace and social stability.

    When people feel detached from their governments, and those in power ride roughshod over the rights and freedoms of the people, history teaches us that those people will rise up..."

    Here is yet another difference between God and Jesus.

    God doesnot get tired:'Have you not known? Have you not heard that the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, FAINTETH NOT, NEITHER IS WEARY? Isaiah 40:28

    Jesus did get tired: 'Now Jacobs well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied with his journey sat on the well... John 4:6

    1. Please stop trolling. Seriously, you are not convincing anyone, just repeating arguments that have already been refuted. You aren't looking to learn and no one is going to be persuaded by your posts about issues that church has long ago resolved.

      Jesus, while God, put aside divine characteristics, to be man. Meaning, he could get tired. Demonstrating that Jesus didn't have divine attributes while living as man proves absolutely nothing more than the depths God descended out of love for us.

    You have no idea who is reading this and what im writing has been refuted very poorly.
    Jesus was and is a man, currently with a glorified, spiritual body like the one you will have someday.
    Making him God is such an insult to him and his accomplishments.
    Do you think he is pleased with you worshipping him as God? I dont think so. I have proven from scripture that God and Jesus are not co-equal and total seperate identities.
    Jesus said that he always did his Fathers will, but you still insist they are one and the same. Thats insanity.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Well... many in the New Testament appear to have worshipped Him without a rebuke or hint of correction, so I feel pretty safe calling Him 'My Lord and my God!'

      God is so much bigger than just physical Jesus, but that's far too big for us to understand. How can the finite understand the infinite? The Infinite one had to give us a Finite One that we could relate to and interact with. At least until we get there and He can explain things better. If a spiritual body can see spiritual things, God will probably no longer need a physical/spiritual body to interact with us through.

      Think of the story of Moses meeting God on the mountain... God had to put something between Him and Moses, lest Moses die. Moses still came down from that encounter on the mountain with such a glow that people couldn't bear to look at Moses and made him wear a veil. In the same way, Jesus is like the veil that Moses had to put on to hide the full glory of God.

      Honestly, I have to ask why why you are so sure of yourself... The more I read scripture and compare it with the world around me, the more convinced I am that I don't have a clue as to the true nature of reality and God... That we need Jesus to return and explain what He meant exactly. There's so many ideas about what He meant, and they can't all be true... can they?

    Hey Sherrill, sorry but heres another one.

    God is all wise-Romans 11:33

    Jesus was not- Mark 13:32 ( note the last few words of that verse)

    And by the way, your refutation of the subject of whether God and the Lord got tired was very weak. Some nonsense from a dead head theological seminary.

    But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you. My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

  74. Event 201
    http://www.centerforhealthsecurity.org/event201/

    This was a planned event, and the viral genome contains evidence of bioengineering, including four separate insertions which code for a component of the HIV virus used for cell to cell transmission.

    Note that the "hospitals" being rapidly erected in China to deal specifically with the victims have bars on the windows. Seems to me this is the perfect opportunity for the communist regime to begin wholescale liquidation of undesirables. Specifically, I suspect that all known Christians will be found to be "infected", and will end up in one of these facilities. This is only the beginning. They will go in, but they won't come out. Remember that the German National Socialists used similar tactics to get undesirables into the "showers". If the plan works there, it may come here. The coincidence of the 2020 census, the UN ID 2020 plan, and this event is interesting. Imagine a scenario where house to house "inspections" are initiated to screen for infected individuals. A mandatory vaccine would likely be implemented as part of the response. ID 2020 is pushing for a global identification system (microchip) delivered via a vaccine. Bill Gates is involved in both ID 2020 and the previously mentioned Event 201.

    This may be the beginning of the Dragon event of Revelation 12, from which the Child is snatched away. Time will tell.

    Ok, im not gonna spoon feed this, you all can read the context.

    In Rev.5:7 it clearly shows two seperate identities. One being God the Father and the other is the Lamb- Jesus, the Son of God.


    'And HE (Jesus the Lamb) came and took the book out of the right hand of HIM (God the Father) that sat upon the throne.


    ' And (John) looking upon Jesus as he walked, he says, 'Behold the Lamb of God'.

    3. Then again, 207 is also reinforcing our belief in the currently known three forms of God. Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Every time I read the verse in Revelation about the 'Seven fold spirit of God' I wonder if He has even more forms we have yet to learn of. How can a finite mind understand fully an Infinite being?

    1. @Anon, I've already addressed you. For transparency sake, I'll do it again so when your next comments are removed you won't be surprised. Discussions are great. Trolling on a completely unrelated article is not. Besides, each of your arguments are essentially straw-men.

      "@Anon, @Zachary, and others: this article has nothing whatsoever to do with the Trinity. Please find a more relevant article to discuss on if you want to, or join the discussion board and ask a question. It's one thing to discuss, but dropping these arguments on an unrelated article tells me the intention is probably not actual discussion.


      To the specific points:


      "This is telling us that the Father God knows things that Jesus his Son doesnt know."

      Yes—while Jesus was in a fleshly body, having humbled Himself from His glory in Heaven. He had the ability of omniscience, but willfully set it aside to experience human life.


      "What is so impressive about God, the one mentioned in Genesis 1:1 walking on the water?"

      Because God is impressive overall, and worthy of all glory and honor. Jesus' powers and miracles are another testimony to His deity.


      "Otherwise why would he have said, 'There's no one good but God'?"

      During His ministry, many were following Him, recognizing that He was a good man and a good teacher who had come from God, but they were not willing to acknowledge that He was God in the flesh, as you are doing, so, as is widely understood, He made the point: "You call Me good, but no one is truly good, but God." In other words, if He is good as He claims, then why not make the obvious conclusion?


      As for Jesus' claims to deity and the NT authors' claims about Him being God, they are manifold to the point that even many of the most anti-Christian biblical scholars like Bart Ehrman have conceded. Outside of JW "scholarship," the Gospel of John is universally regarded as repeatedly claiming that Jesus was/is the pre-existent God. Among the epistles and Revelation, they are replete with references to Jesus' divinity. Attacks against Jesus divinity center almost exclusively on the synoptic gospels, but they, too, claim He is divine.

      The Divinity of Jesus Revealed in the New Testament

      Does the Gospel of Mark Present Jesus as God?

      Jesus as “God”: Scriptural Fact or Scribal Fantasy?

      What is the doctrine of the Trinity?"

    The book of Romans is the foundational doctrinal epistle written to us the body of Christ.


    Wherefore as by one MAN sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for all have sinned.
    ( For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not umputed when there is no law.
    Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after Adams transgression, who is the figure of him who was come. ( Jesus)
    But not as the offense, so also is the free gift. For if through the offense of one (Adam) many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one MAN Jesus Christ has abounded to many.
    Romans 5:12-15
    To encapsulate this passage- One MAN got us into trouble (Adam). It took another MAN to shed his sin free blood to get us out of trouble.(Jesus a.k.a the second Adam)

    But as the Apostle Paul also writes in 1 Corinthians 14:38- If any man be ignorant, let them be ignorant.
