For The Sake Of The Elect

Thought I might quote from the new LSV for fun, so you could get a flavor for it.

Matthew 24:22 (LSV):

And if those days were not shortened, no flesh would have been saved; but because of the chosen, will those days be shortened.

Reflecting over the last several years, when prophecy seemed so very pregnant and it seemed this civilization couldn't go another step without imploding.

The fires burn out, the crisis calms down and I go on without another thought.  For all of the shaking, God has been exceedingly slow to anger, abounding in love, merciful and patient.  No one will be able to say He did not offer every warning and every opportunity.

How often I have failed to notice and praise the work of the Restrainer as He holds back evil until the appointed time.

Even now with the Middle East boiling at the Trump / Kushner "deal of the century" and the world largely ignorant of the many warnings and promises, including this one.

Joel 3:1-2 (LSV):

For behold, in those days, and in that time, || When I turn back [to] the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem, || Then I have gathered all the nations, || And caused them to go down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat, || And I have been judged with them there, || Concerning My people and My inheritance—Israel, || Whom they scattered among nations, || And My land they have apportioned.

How can the world miss a 7.7 earthquake, 1400 miles away, one hour after the announcement?  Jamaica is at heading 186 degrees from D.C.  Strong's 186: unbent, unyielding, resolute, firm—Zechariah 12:3 ring a bell?

Thinking a great deal about how easy it would have been for the World Wars, Cold War, SARS, Fukushima, terrorism, debt, violence, racism, billions of poor and oppressed, revolution, political corruption, stalemates, and hundreds of others, to cause total global implosion.

I don't intend to make light of these.  Not at all.  But if you solved them all it wouldn't help you a bit in what is just ahead.

With Ezekiel 38–39 looming large and now the Coronavirus, the Spirit could simply look the other way for a moment and we would be consumed.

Stunning really how complacent and numb this world is to believe that it will all work out, except for God's grace, mercy, and restraint.

How many times He has spared us, held us, cleaned us up and called us home...

World Health Organization - Coronavirus - Situation reports:

I certainly don't know anything about the proliferation rates of infectious disease, but compounding is not lost on me.  Growth rate (below) my own.  This is probably self serving, but thought it to be interesting—the Coronavirus could infect the whole planet by Easter without much trouble.

I am grateful that He has held us, protected us, nurtured us, taught us, and loved us so well, right up to this hour.  I am grateful that we are not to suffer wrath and will be spared, but if you are not sealed, you should stop, drop, and accept the free gift.

The deception is thick as the world focuses on all of the lesser issues—important issues, but they pale in comparison.

Melodramatic doom and gloom date-setters, some will say...

I say He is warning in every way possible and so should I.  The Day of the Lord is at hand.

2 Peter 3:9-10a (LSV):

...the LORD is not slow in regard to the promise, as some count slowness, but is long-suffering to us, not intending any to be lost, but all to come to conversion, and it will come—the Day of the LORD—as a thief in the night...

White Star Line Property

What does it take to wake up and smell the coffee?

The Restrainer is pulling back.  Death, disease, war, persecution, starvation—21 judgments in all are on the way.

Solving ocean plastic and the National debt won't get it done.

Rev 9:21 (LSV):

Indeed they did not convert from their murders, nor from their sorceries, nor from their whoredoms, nor from their thefts.

400–440 years of silence between testaments.  400+ years of loudness with the explosion of the gospel from the Reformation forward.

At the precipice we now find ourselves, we are now at ~460 days before May 14th, 2021 (7 years before the 80 year mark from 1948).

How many days cut short will the days be?  None of us can know, but we can smell the coffee, see the signs, know His Word and hear the urgency in His voice.

Matthew 16:1-3. (LSV):

And the Pharisees and Sadducees having come, tempting, questioned Him, to show to them a sign from Heaven, and He answering said to them, "Evening having come, you say, Fair weather, for the sky is red, and at morning, Foul weather today, for the sky is red—gloomy; hypocrites, you indeed know to discern the face of the sky, but the signs of the times you are not able!"

Post A Comment


  1. I just woke up the last two mornings thinking this very thing that next year Israel will be 7 years away from turning 80 but I have not ever thought about the restrainer pulling back before he leaves with us. Praise God!

  2. The greatest threat of this corona outbreak is that panicking about this virus can cause the total crash of economies and societies. The financial system has been very precarious since the financial crisis of 2007-2009.

  3. Anyone familiar with Terry Bennett's visitation by the angel Gabriel, and the prophetic cycles until the year 2028? If so what is your take?

    1. Yeah, i remember terry bennett was told by angels about tribulation starting in 2021 when antichrist rise from europe but he also said that does not mean last seven years begins from 2021... I am confused

    2. Maybe told by demons, or fallen angels? Demons only tell half the truth, or lies mixed with truth.

    3. Not Europe for sure!
      Revelation 17:10
      Verse 10, there are seven kings: five are fallen - as we've shown before, Daniel started with Babylon, but there were two other kingdoms that suppressed Israel before Babylon. They were Egypt who took them into bondage, and later Assyria who captured them and put them in bondage, then Babylon was the third, then Medo-Persia was the fourth and Grecia was the fifth.
      Those are the five kingdoms that had fallen by the time John was writing this.
      Now, during Johns time was the sixth - Rome. Then the gap, waiting for the seventh kingdom upon the land out of Babylon that was yet to come.
      History shows that the next Empire on that very land was the Moslem Empire. The Moslem Empire is, the after the gap, seventh Empire, that came to power on that land, that was yet to come in Johns day. And stands alone as the last Empire to occupy that land. And, that Empire was founded and ruled by Muhammad, the prophet of Allah,, and he ruled it from his kingdom, The Hashemite Kingdom, which is within the boundaries of the Seleucid Portion of the Old Grecian Empire, exactly where Daniel 11, verses 18-21 says the Little Horn that rises in the end time will come from.
      And, it is from out of this seventh kingdom, the Hashemite Kingdom, that the 8th kingdom will come - Antichrist's kingdom.
      Scripture is amazingly clear bout this.

  4. "And if those days were not shortened, no flesh would have been saved; but because of the chosen, will those days be shortened."

    When we read this most think 'the number of days will be shortened'. Yet in context Jesus is speaking of the Great Tribulation and those days, and the rule of the Antichrist, has been set in prophetic concrete since the days of Daniel. 'Time, times, and half a time' (which is 3 1/2 years) in Daniel 7:25 or 42 months (3 1/2 years) in Rev 13:5 or 1,260 days (3 1/2 years) in Rev 12:6.

    So how are the days shortened if the number has already been prophetically declared and set? Maybe we are wrong to think it is 'the number of days' being shortened. As an alternative view, maybe it is the length (not the number) of the days themselves that is shortened. But can a day be shorter than 24 hours? Can the earth's axis rotation be sped up? I'm always intrigued by the following verse and what it actually means. Does it indicate a 16 hour day and thus, the literal words of Jesus are fulfilled where it is the days themselves (not the number) that are shortened to help the saints?

    "Rev 8:12 The fourth angel sounded his trumpet, and a third of the sun was struck, a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that a third of them turned dark. A third of the day was without light, and also a third of the night."

    1. Since the Lord was very specific about the number of days, or months and years, it seems that will not change. What if He shortens the length of the days? That would also effect the ability of plants to produce their fruit. Not enough daylight.

    2. Yes, that's my thinking. A 1/3rd reduction in the length of each day and night. I talk about that here: https://www.unsealed.org/2018/06/the-day-of-lord.html

      As with many prophecies, there can be near-term and long-term fulfillments, and perhaps multiple layers.

    3. Gary if I'm reading you right, are you saying the day would 16 hours and not 24? That would cause the rotation of earth to speed up by a third (I think, not a mathematician but it has to spin faster). The cataclysm would likely destroy the planet in a matter of days if that happened. Imagine the tidal implications alone! the moon would be out of cycle, the heat inside the earth would rise dramatically. The days would certainly be cut short. 1260/1290 would go right out the window

    4. Thanks Gary - didn't know you thought that. Cheers - I'll look at your article.
      Mike - the 1260/1290 days would remain the same number. It is just the length of those days that is shortened. Not something trying to be dogmatic about! : ) but it always seemed to me that Rev 8:12 indicates a third less day AND a third less night. Which is pretty odd. If it was just the day then you could say it will have shortened days and longer nights... But this judgement affects both day and night by a third. There might be other ways of interpreting Rev 8:12 but I'm not sure what that is.

      What impact would a faster spinning earth have? Would it destroy the earth in a matter of days? Above my pay grade so I did look up if any scientists had to anything to say and this article went through some scenarios, going right up from the current 1000 miles an hour to 17,000 miles an hour. It indicates that doubling the speed would not cause the earth to be destroyed (and we aren't talking about that amount of increase in Rev 8:12) but would definitely have serious implications. But when you read of all the 'thirds' and 'quarters' dying/being destroyed in the book of Revelation something is causing some pretty serious implications for planet earth!

      It is quite an interesting read if these things push your buttons... : )

    5. There is absolutely no PROOF of a ball earth.
      The Earth does not spin, and the sun and the moon are inside the firmament!
      The earth is exactly How it is described in the bible, FLAT and Domed.
      Even NASA and the Military admits, they can't get through the ferment.
      They have tried!
      short version
      long version

    6. IF one really believes in a spinning globe, THEN one believes the vatican and the Father of LIES!!!!

      You also belive in all the CGI fakery by nasa and have been brainwashed (as their mission) to DECEIVE the mass populations through media.


      The Bible, God's WORD is very very clear as to what was made first, second, the waters on and above which the Earth sits FIRMLY placed not to be moved as it rests on four pillars!

      When the sun stood still for Joshua, the sun stood still. The Earth DID not stop rotating nor was there any other "solar system" reset blah blah blah. God stopped the sun which resides in the waters above the Earth (not 93 million miles away).


      Of course this is absolute FAKE NONESENSE,but the title was just irresistable not to post here as some people really believe this evil mass delusion:

      SpaceX => Crew Dragon Launch Escape Demonstration

      < Key words here: Dragon | Launch | Escape >


      SpaceX is targeting Sunday, January 19 for an in-flight test of Crew Dragon’s launch escape capabilities from Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. This test, which does not have NASA astronauts onboard the spacecraft, is intended to demonstrate Crew Dragon’s ability to reliably carry crew to safety in the unlikely event of an emergency on ascent.

      Another anecdote from FiveDoves


      From the scripture verse I addressed above concerning Jesus and Satan where Satan takes Jesus up on a high mountain whereby they both can see ALL the kingdoms of the world from that vantage point..which obviously would be impossible if the earth was round/curved.

      To deny this verse, this biblical truth, and the scores of other references in God’s word that describe our terrestrial existence here on earth as being “flat”...... is in my humble opinion an offense against God...... but is a fitting tribute to NASA or the National Advancement of the Satanic Agenda.

      I was reading my bible this week and came across Acts 17 where God is talking about the peoples of the world and how He determined “boundaries to their habitation” and that He, God, was near to us within those boundaries.

      With the flat earth model and a clear firmament overhead as described in scripture there are certainly firm “boundaries to our habitation” here on earth.

      But if one uses NASA’s description of what surrounds us there certainly are no firm boundaries. And we are instructed to believe that earth is just an insignificant speck in a pretty much endless universe...... instead of a relatively compact enclosure with defined boundaries and a God who dwells near to us as is depicted in scripture.

      I am not sure what the stars above us are composed of but God tells us in several different verses of scripture that they are going to fall to earth.

      In one spot God says they will fall to earth like over-ripe figs in another spot they will fall like dry dead leaves fluttering to the ground.......both descriptions render no harm when they hit the ground or hit earth. God says that there is water above the firmament and whatever these stars are they are suspended in that water.

      Maybe that’s why they twinkle.

      So for me to swallow NASA’s lies that these stars are of huge mass and thousands of times larger than earth and millions of light years away........ would be for me to have to completely discount God’s word and I am not prepared to do that.

      There are many in the 5Doves community < and everywhere else > that are OK with discounting God’s words concerning these things and warming up to whatever computer generated images and fuzzy math NASA puts out.......but I am not one of them.

      One more thought....If Satan does control the kingdoms of this world as scripture indicates which facets of those kingdoms would be the most valuable to him in an effort to convince mankind that we are not special, that we do no live in a special place created just for us, and that there is no creator God who lives close to us and wants to have a special relationship with us????

      Would not Satan want to control the science community and especially NASA.

      NEWS FLASH, He does.

    8. I hate to burst anyone's bubble but the earth is in fact a sphere, 8000 miles in diameter, 24k miles circumference. This country put men on the moon in 1969 and will again in 2024. Dozens of countries have satellites in orbit around the earth. How do you think the internet and TV are broadcast around the world ?

  5. I don't believe in a Rapture. I think we are all going to go through this. To test us.

    1. This comment has been removed by the author.

    2. I can understand this thought. I've wrestled with it myself. The only concern I have is that this isnt really a test. Once the end times are in full swing people going to be dropping like flies. It's G-d pouring his wrath out on the whole world for righteous judgment. I for one hope we will all be long gone by then. I witnessed the aftermath of Katrina and other horrible disasters. It breaks your heart to see all that suffering. That wont even compare.

    3. Christians have been tested for their faith for millennia, and we think we're special so we get to take an elevator away from the world just in time? I don't believe that. We're no better than people who were fed to the lions or crucified or beheaded by ISIS. Yes it will be horrible but we have to take an eternity-centered mindset, not a this-worldly mindset. This world is just a passing through, a time of testing. Suffering through the tribulation is nothing compared to suffering in hell, I'd bet.

    4. Besides, after the tribulation, things will get set right finally. Swords will be beaten into plowshares. So we have that to look forward to if we survive it, and if we don't, again, we should be concerned about eternity, not just what happens here.

    5. To test how long we'll last before charging towards the guillotines to be put to death for following Him? I'd be there the day they set them up. I'm not going to take any chances of them tieing me down or catching me in my sleep (or knocking me out) to force the mark on me.

      Christians may change their thoughts on suicide in those days honestly...

    6. Zachary/All,

      I offer the following in love and from a gentle spirit without condemnation or judgement. It is not my purpose to ridicule but to offer a perspective.

      It is certainly your right to believe that *we* must go through testing via "the tribulation"...but for the sake of discussion I have to honestly ask, "Why?"

      Why? Is the story all of a sudden about *me/us* when it all along has been about Jesus? It's G-D's story and not ours.

      Why? What is so special about the living generation of saints over those who have gone before us?

      Why? What about the testing of the saints who are already asleep? Should they be tested too?

      Why? Are we suppose to be "good enough" for admission into heaven? What is "good enough?" That form of thinking is what led me to Christ. I AM NOT GOOD ENOUGH, ONLY HE IS!

      Why? Do we have to PASS a test? The ONLY litmus test I can find is an abiding in Christ the vine. Beyond that we're stuck in works trying to attain and maintain our own righteousness like the patriarchs. (We all know the destination on the day of their death).

      Why? Doesn't God already know the outcome of every choice that I make? What's the point of taking a test when the grade is known by the teacher before the student takes the test?

      Why? Am I not all of a sudden good enough when all along and since my confession of faith I have been a biologic temple of the living God? Baptised by the Holy Spirit too!

      Why? Even if I FAIL, which I DO, and am utterly broken, which I AM, can He, and doesn't He already, bring good from what is meant as evil? Doesn't He make broken things brand-new? Am I to think that my, "Yes!" to Jesus isn't somehow good enough?

      Why? Would we want to survive the Great Tribulation if we could be with the LORD instead? Survive? Survive what, suffering? How many good people do we know that have suffered horribly in life? Some have lived and some have died following terrible suffering. Is this not their test?

      Why? How we live and how we die is a test for ourselves. It gives substance and value to our hope and faith. It strengthens our love. Do we glorify the Father in our suffering and prosperity? Do we glorify the Son? Do we glorify the Holy Spirit or have we in our own pride failed to do any of the above?

      I humbly submit...THAT IS THE TEST!!!

      (Romans 10:9-10 ESV) should be lived and understood as a present tense. Miss that and you miss the point of the whole thing.

      Our abiding in Jesus just as He abides in the Father.


      If the 24-elders seen by John arrayed around the throne of God are indeed the Church, His saints being us -- then the discussion of where we are and when is moot. The 24 are present when Jesus opens the first seal.

      If you don't see the 24 as being the resurrected and raptured saints; then YMMV.

      Thus the question of who are the 24-elders is paramount.

      Who do you say they are? John wanted to know and asked them.

      How did they answer?



    7. letter to the Church of Philadelphia: "Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of TRIAL that is going to come on the whole world to TEST the inhabitants of the earth.

      11 I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown. 12 The one who is VICTORIOUS I will make a pillar in the temple of my God."

      An hour of TESTING. I'm not aware that Revelation states anywhere that people will be beheaded just for refusing to take the mark. Also note above that this is not stating that the Church of Philadelphia will be raptured, because it states they will enter heaven if they are VICTORIOUS during the time of testing. Those who kill by the sword will die by the sword. Those who love not their lives unto death will be saved.

    8. Hi Zachary--I try to stay humble regarding the last days' timeline, but what really helped me was Dr. Robert D. Luginbill’s article, “The Heavenly Prelude to the Tribulation”:

      "The so-called "four horsemen" of seals one through four are symbols representing specific tribulational trends (as is the case with seals five and six as well), and are not actual entities in their own right. . .

      The "four horsemen", the consecutive trends which accompany antichrist's rise to power and administration of his satanic kingdom, represent patterns of activity destined to occur during the first half of the seven-year Tribulation. On the other hand, the fifth and sixth seals represent the most important events of the Tribulation's second half or "the Great Tribulation", namely, the Great Persecution (seal five), and the divine response to it (most notably the ten "bowl judgments" and the final judgments of Armageddon which accompany the Second Advent). . ."

      There's more of his article and more info at my blog post: https://lynmelvin.blogspot.com/2018/07/the-july-27-blood-moon-is-not-sixth-seal.html

      Things are gonna get really rocky, I believe, here on planet Earth; however, I staunchly believe the Scriptures say those born of His Spirit are not subject to God's indignation:

    9. From the Greek,


      Here are some keywords and phrases,

      "The ones dwelling upon the earth" is a reference to the lost and not to the Church. The trials that are to come are not for the Church of Philadelphia but for those who dwell in/on the earth. The Lord clearly states because you, the Church of Philadelphia, have endured, "I will keep you from the hour of trial." There is no intersection of THE trial and the Church here. That is reserved for those who take the number of the beast and worship the image of it.

      Jesus further calls on the church to defend the faith, guard their heart(s) and hold fast to the faith they have been given. That is parallel to what I've share numerous times regarding the present tense in which Paul records (Romans 10:9-10 ESV).

      In short, don't be discouraged by all you see going on around you. Hold fast to your faith. Abide in Christ no matter what.

      Your first quotation of John mirrors mine. They are the same and say the same thing. The church will be spared the trial to come upon the inhabitants of the earth. The lost.

      You are right that the above does not outright say the Church of Philadelphia will be raptured. The Lord hints at this earlier which you didn't quote,


      (Revelation 3:7 GNT)

      The doorway is the hint. It is Jesus who comes to meet His Church in the air -- it is He who opens the doorway that is the RR and He who closes it. Not men. Not fallen angels.

      As for people who will be beheaded just for refusing to take the mark? Here is that scripture in parallel,


      Quoting, Biblehub.com

      "I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for the testimony of Jesus and for the word of God, and those who had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands."

      Precision is an important factor in reading and sharing scripture. I'm far from perfect but I do my best to accurately represent. There is so much to teach from this verse -- way more than space allows here.

    10. I appreciate your engaging with me on this topic but this is still not clear cut proof of a rapture. You also didn't address my point that the Church of Philadelphia is exhorted to be "victorious". "They are spared from the trial" COULD mean that due to their faith, whether they live or die during the tribulation, they will be eternally saved. I grant it could mean rapture, but again I raise my point that a pre-trib rapture still makes no sense. In order for the strong delusion to take place, those who are deluded must still deny the truth of Christianity. If believers are raptured beforehand, they will then KNOW that Christianity is the truth, so no deception will be possible. How do pre-tribbers address this serious problem for their thesis?

      And the quote you shared about the beheaded ones still doesn't disprove my argument that nowhere is it stated that people will be FORCED to give up Christianity or FORCED to take the mark of the beast. Being beheaded for the testimony of Christ could just mean that they are killed for whatever reason. ISIS has done that before any of this has even taken place. I believe what we're going to see is a "United Nations of Religions" where the beast system will say "Oh yeah, Christianity, that's fine to believe in that, just like it's fine to believe in any other religion."

    11. Oh, you want proof of a rapture? No I didn't address that.

      51 Behold! I tell you a mystery.
      We shall not all sleep, but we
      shall all be changed,

      52 in a moment, in the twinkling
      of an eye, at the last trumpet.
      For the trumpet will sound, and
      the dead will be raised imperishable,
      and we shall be changed.

      53 For this perishable body must
      put on the imperishable, and this
      mortal body must put on immortality.

      54 When the perishable puts on
      the imperishable, and the mortal
      puts on immortality, then shall
      come to pass the saying that is

      "Death is swallowed up in victory."

      55 "O death, where is your victory?
      O death, where is your sting?"

      (1 Corinthians 15:51-55 ESV)

      Rapture and victory all rolled-up into one. Paul continues,

      57 But thanks be to God, who gives us
      victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

      (1 Corinthians 15:57 ESV)

      Jesus is the Victory. It is He who is Victorious. We share in that victory but out of our weakness just as the Church of Philadelphia does; though the word "victorious" is not used in the letter to the church.

      Do you think that if the Church is taken that it will prove to everyone that the Church was right? You are right...those who are deluded must still deny the truth and they will. The RR will be obfuscated by a delusion. L A Marzulli thinks that will come in the form of fallen angels posing as aliens come to help mankind. I won't argue for or against that here but we know that the deception is possible and will happen.

      9 The coming of the lawless
      one is by the activity of Satan
      with all power and false signs
      and wonders,

      10 and with all wicked deception
      for those who are perishing,
      because they refused to love the
      truth and so be saved.

      11 Therefore God sends them a
      strong delusion, so that they may
      believe what is false,

      12 in order that all may be
      condemned who did not believe the
      truth but had pleasure in

      (2 Thessalonians 2:9-12 ESV)

      The delusion is not theory, it is Scriptural fact. Doubt one point we doubt it all. That is the point at which we are calling God a liar. There is no serious problem in our thesis as you say. None at all. Scripture speaks for itself.

      Paul continues in his letter to the Thessalonians,

      15 For this we declare to you by a
      word from the Lord, that we who are
      alive, who are left until the coming
      of the Lord, will not precede those
      who have fallen asleep.

      16 For the Lord himself will descend
      from heaven with a cry of command,
      with the voice of an archangel, and
      with the sound of the trumpet of God.
      And the dead in Christ will rise first.

      17 Then we who are alive, who are left,
      will be caught up together with them in
      the clouds to meet the Lord in the air,
      and so we will always be with the Lord.

      18 Therefore encourage one another with
      these words.

      (1 Thessalonians 4:15-18 ESV)

      Like I said, who do you say the 24-elders are? (Yes, I am asking you Zachary and back it up Scripturally!!)

    12. FORCED

      Why are you so concerned about the word FORCED? The quote I shared again demonstrates the conditions under which the Tribulation saints lose their lives. The parable of the sower should be witness to the fact that some will fall away. Others will die for their testimony of Jesus. Yes, they could be killed for whatever reason. ISIL did so as part of a shadow of that which is yet to come.

      Doing something under duress is a form of force. John witnesses,

      16 Also it causes all, both small
      and great, both rich and poor, both
      free and slave, to be marked on the
      right hand or the forehead,

      17 so that no one can buy or sell
      unless he has the mark, that is,
      the name of the beast or the
      number of its name.

      (Revelation 13:16-17 ESV)

      That basically says it all. "[I]t causes all" as in ALL, EVERYONE!!!

      To participate in the economy of the day one MUST have the mark. That demonstrates power if not power by force. What does this mean to the individual? YMMV. What does this mean to our brothers and sisters being the New Tribulation Church?

      Nothing good on earth.

      The power of the mark, which is death, requires one to receive the mark and worship the image of the beast. This gives rise to the concept that one may be forced to take the mark but they may not worship it. Then again, if the mark causes a physical, genetic change of the person and perhaps involved thought monitoring or mind control? Who knows?!

      But we do know that,

      15 ...it was allowed to give breath
      to the image of the beast, so that
      the image of the beast might even
      speak and might cause those who
      would not worship the image of the
      beast to be slain.

      (Revelation 13:15-16 ESV)

      Again, we see those who do not worship the beast will be killed. Forced worship by duress.

      It kinda reminds me of a VeggieTale about Rack, Shack and Benny!

      I do agree with you on a universal religion. Whatever you want to call it; it will be Godless having the fingerprints of man all over it. A powerless imitation of the truth faith found in Christ alone.

    13. Good thing He didn't make noah and his family stick around to be tested on swimming zach.

    14. Oh...you will, there will be a 40ty day warning on first fruits just like in Jesus day.
      The dead will rise and go into Jerusalem just like the first time.
      Then after 40ty days those who are alive and remain.
      Remember God brings back with him those who sleep in Jesus.
      Paul was very specific.

  6. Amen Zachary. Those who have been deceived by Scofield’s Jesuit Futurism ( strong delusion ) will not be able to stand when thier faith is tested - even so by death .

    God help His own to stand in the days ahead.

    2. Since when does anyone stand by their own strength? Any such strength is rooted in pride which is sin and will fail on the coming Day. G.O.A.T.s go with the goats. His sheep know His voice; their names are written upon His hand.

  8. God truly is amazingly patient and long suffering and His ways and thoughts certainly above, way above ours. I think what goes on in Israel is a good way to gauge things. I don’t know but I think they need a functioning government in order to sign the deal and the election is scheduled for March 2. What if no party reaches the 61 seat majority needed ? A fourth election. God determines it all and He will do all His counsel. More time for believers to store up treasure in our Heavenly bank accounts. I certainly don’t want to appear before our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ empty handed at the Bema Seat. He found issues with 6/7 churches in Revelation, so we gotta get going sharing the Glorious Gospel of Christ with as many as we can. So many are hard hearted and deceived. Praying for them is the best thing we can do if they don’t believe. It is the goodness of God that leads them to repentance and no one can come to Jesus unless our Heavenly Father draws him. And Jesus said All that the Father has given Me will come to me. Very comforting indeed.

  9. On the topic of the shortened days, I have also questioned it. The number of days has been clearly established.
    The greek word for shortened means to "amputate". Certainly it wouldnt be difficult for God to put a little extra spin on earth and therefore shortening the days but I think it more likely means that the days allotted are the absolute "cutoff" point, meaning one day more would mean extinction.

    1. Yeah... the original great tribulation might have lasted 21 years (Jacob's trouble was at least that long), but He cut it down to 7. Right now, I can't imagine the world going on as it is going another 10, let alone 20 or 30...

  10. Great article, Greg. I apologize for going off topic a bit but I just wanted to post a link to the last speech by Nigel Farage at the EU and what happened when he and the other Brits started waving their country’s flag: https://youtu.be/Lfyal78d9EQ

  11. Hey Zachary, im sorry you dont believe in the Rapture, its our blessed hope.
    Please read 1 thessalonians 1:10 and the context of which its written. Chapter 4 writes about our departure.

    1. this is going to be a cleansing process to destroy the destroyers of the Earth. things will be better - much better - afterwards. I'm not looking forward to it happening but God has his plan and we are just living in it. The strong delusion couldn't go forward if believers had been raptured first. Think about it.

    2. Jesus said it was okay to pray to escape all these things. The strong delusion seems to already be here in all those people believing lies... People seem to have more faith in CNN than their bibles...

    3. I'm not aware of any clear convincing scriptural evidence for a pre-trib rapture. And if you think about it, it just logically makes no sense. So millions of people disappear and then those who are left on Earth are supposed to eat the ultimate apple of delusion? Maybe "escaping all these things" just means you don't die in the tribulation. And although I think we're living in a time of strong delusion, we're not yet at THE strong delusion.

    4. The strong delusion happens after the Restrainer is no longer restraining. And it only happens to the unsaved.

      "For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming. The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness." 2 Thess. 2:7-12

      I'm not understanding your conclusion that the strong delusion couldn't go forward if believers had been raptured first. It's something God sends upon those who are unsaved.

  12. Wouldn't the easiest most logical interpretation be that if the tribulation continued, no one would survive, but for the elect sake, it was shortened to seven years. He could have kept the tribulation going as long as He wanted, but He didn't.

    1. from everything I've read the tribulation will be 2520 days, 7 years. no question about it.

    2. ...err...sorta. The Great Tribulation is for 42-months and is at the last half of the seventieth week. (Think from AoD to the return of our Lord). We tend to call the seven years the tribulation although it's not "The Tribulation" it's Daniel's Seventieth Week.

      In (Matthew 24:22 ESV) Jesus is talking about the Jewish elect. The elect are saved from the AC and nourished in the wilderness for 1,260-days. Will other people, Tribulation Saints, survive the Great Tribulation? We know that some will not bear the mark of the beast and thus not be subject to the creatures from the pit that bear a sting so severe their victims beg for death. (Revelation 9:4 ESV)

      This is very much a shadow of the plagues of Egypt where Israel was sparred the terrors of God's wrath.

      How many places do we see reference to the ones not bearing the mark? Sounds like a good Bible study!


  13. Also, I love everything that this site puts out, so this is just some speculation. But, I think if God wants to provide a sign, He can do it very clearly. Why not an earthquake in DC or in Israel after the Peace Deal Announcement. Folks that look for signs can find them anywhere. I'm not a big fan of trying to find a minor detail like 186 degrees from Washington DC and then correlating that to a concordance definition to validate scripture. That, to me, takes away from 99% of the meat of the article. But, who knows, I've been wrong before and I know that God can have his hand in everything for those that are looking for Him. However, right now, in my 49 years of life, I find the concordance number validation of prophecy, scripture and dreams to be 100% bogus and I honestly think God would say, "knock it off". It undermines scripture and real research and it makes the unbeliever think we are loons and fortune tellers. How will they believe us when we are telling them the Bible is true and then we validate it by telling them their birthday or their drivers license number means 'believe' in a Hebrew concordance. And if it doesn't mean anything, then we'll go to the Greek Concordance--and if we can't find it there, we'll ask them for the social security number until we find something. Not good IMO. Love the other stuff though. :)

    1. Yeah I agree Jeff and have written about this before. I've been a Christian and Bible teacher for 30 years and prior to coming to this site I had never seen Strong's concordance used in this way to 'interpret' what a number means. Not sure where this came from. I'm sure Mr James Strong would be shocked to see his concordance used in this way!

      Like you I enjoy this site. It has some great messages and discussion. This comment is not written to diss this site but it is simply a plea for sound interpretation and less speculation so everything can be taken seriously by the Christian and non-Christian alike.

  14. I have to agree, there are a lot of loose correlations on this site, some of them get my attention however like the 7.7 earthquake just a little while after the announcement of the peace plan. Thats a bit weird.

  15. Jeff and Mike, I once wondered why I always loved math so much. I was only ever average at it, but then I found the Lord and it all made sense. Go to Daniel Matson's website, Signs of the End. And if you really want to get crazy look up the following website. God is the Ultimate Mathmetician. Every one of the biggest and minutest details are woven together numerically in a tapestry so beautiful, we can't even begin to imagine it. Soon, we won't have to. Maranatha! https://sites.google.com/site/mathematicalmonotheism/home?fbclid=IwAR3_LsQgGt8K7d07ZXpqxHscAOcHKA0iFv2AE69ktfKG875pwKmMe6rsFxY

  20. Well done Greg!

    We should not be afraid to ask the BIG questions and explore the possibilities especially when by the prompting of the Spirit. May all of it be a learning opportunity for us and a challenge to not take on faith the word of another; but to seek the answers for ourselves -- get out our Bible(s) and start digging to confirm, expand or debunk said conclusions.

    May I submit to my brothers and sisters -- dig on these things for yourself as you feel called. If you think a report is false then test it, try it and put it under a microscope. You may find that these breadcrumbs lead to new and inviting places or that they lead to dead-ends.

    Either way make sure it is time well spent with the LORD.

    I say the watermarks of God are everywhere and I marvel at them when they are found.


  21. Greg~My sister and I were just talking about the lo-o-o-o-ngsuffering of the Lord and of His great mercy! Also, you wrote "the Coronavirus could infect the whole planet by Easter without much trouble". It caught my attention because of so much pointing to a culmination by Passover as I shared here: https://lynmelvin.blogspot.com/2020/01/rapture-tapestry-reveals-april-2020.html

  22. To those of us watching from a Biblical perspective it's EASY to see God's hand in holding back all the could be's and might have been's - and there are so MANY of them!
    It's mind boggling to the point of being on system overload these days where it just becomes nearly impossible to comprehend it all on more than a surface level.
    We know there's a multitudinous array of events going on - everything from the weather to politics and peace treaties!
    The irony is, of course, that most do not have a clue regarding the true nature of events.
    IF, IF, IF I didn't have somewhat of a clue, I would be totally overwhelmed.
    However, having been granted a smidgeon of grace and understanding,
    I at least know enough to try and TRUST GOD in all things!
    He's had to drag me screaming and kicking to get me here, but most days, most times, it's true.
    * * * * *
    I may still call the computer tech or put out an alert about a missing dog, and we still treat sick puppies, but... my FIRST thought is USUALLY to pray and ask God for HELP! (Old habits and being raised on the premise that "the good Lord helps those who help themselves" is hard to overcome.)
    God cares about what I care about.
    Including the “little” things.
    I'm not talking about Genie in a bottle and granting wishes here.
    I'm talking about a RELATIONSHIP.
    It's because of that relationship that I don't freak out while the world around me is falling apart.
    Anyone remember Billy Joel's We didn't Start the Fire?
    The song details major events from 1949-1989.
    Think how much worse things have become since then (1989 - present).
    No wonder so many folks are depressed and medicated.
    Or self-medicating.
    I understand why it's easier for them to just tune out and live their lives...
    They don’t want to know and don’t care unless something impacts them directly.
    Thing is, in a sense, it’s ALL personal.

  23. BIG events happening around the world.
    But, I see God a LOT in the "little" things.
    The heat went out with a ka chunk, ka chunk sound.
    Old building, old furnace.
    And, of course, it's SNOWING!
    We pulled out space heaters for the puppies and put coats on all but one dog - a Great Pyrenees named Potato who does NOT wear coats and who LOVES the snow and cold weather!
    Anyway, long story longer,
    I'm praying and making calls.
    We got a guy out between jobs and he's off to get parts as of now.
    Thank God 1. The guy came out between jobs 2. He's able to fix the furnace. 3. We have funds in the bank to pay his bill.
    Many folks would look at me like I'm nuts - it's all coincidence and good luck, right?!
    I know otherwise.
    That's what trusting God is all about.
    We could have not gotten someone out. He could have not been able to fix it. We could not have the money to pay the bill.
    THAT'S the kind of world most people live in.
    The really, really beyond sad part is that it's their choice to do so.

  24. There are people who are determined not to believe no matter how well you explain the answers to their questions. I have dealt with unbelievers who want to “debate” God’s Holy Word. At some point, you just have to do what God’s Holy Word tells us to do regarding such people:

    10 A man that is an heretick after the first and second admonition reject;

    11 Knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned of himself.

    Titus 10-11

  25. You know when you will believe the Rapture is pre-tribulational ?

    When you’re left behind.


      Who's going to tell them there was probably never a Moses, a Noah or a parting of the Red Sea?
      Who's going to tell them the historical man Jesus of Nazareth was never a god and didn't resurrect from the dead?
      Who's going to tell them there's no historical evidence behind the Book of Joshua?
      Who's going to tell them there's no pre-trib rapture?
      Who's going to tell them that Jesus isn't going to come flying back in the clouds with hosts of angels?
      Who's going to tell them the whole world is supposed to be punished FOR NOT BELIEVING THESE THINGS WHICH ARE NOT TRUE?

      Who's going to tell them?

    2. Thanks for validating everything I posted. You were never here to learn but to harass. 207. You have exposed your not very well hidden motives.

      When they’re in hell, then they will know.

    3. Archangel, You were right the first time.
      After the Rapture of the Church, folks like him will KNOW.
      It's going to be pretty obvious.
      Folks gone, including EVERY SINGLE CHILD, along with all the unborn babies will have disappeared.
      To me, that one fact, more than anything else, will be the "clincher".
      The children.
      The babies.
      It's why I always tell the scoffers and eye rollers who insist on mid-trib, post trib, or no trib about it - so when it happens, they'll remember and KNOW!

    4. Blessings Lori. Yes, babies, even in their mothers wombs I expect to be Raptured. I think some will fall for the UFO deception but the Bible says many will be saved during the Trib. So much better to get saved now.

    5. I meant Blessings Jenny :)

    6. Ryan...Exactly. I believe strongly in post trib....but if I am wrong, the ones saying I will be left behind watching them go up are also wrong. We believers in Christ will all rise together when that day comes. If I were to say that pretribbers arent going to be raptured if indeed we are raptured post trib...them SHAME on me for saying that!

  26. You’re not ready for strong meat but are still on milk if you’re even saved which by your lack of knowledge and stubbornness indicates not likely.

    1. I'm on the milk of the Lamb

  27. Um...so just watched the last two videos that Paul Dawson from revalation12dotcom released and was kind of having my mind blown, then I come home from work and my son tells me that all the Chinese foreign exchange students were not allowed back to school and would have to go back to China. I don't know exactly what is going on, but I do know that we need to he praying for our brothers and sisters as well as for the unbelievers there.

    And by the way, like it or not im your brother and I do believe that God raised his SON from the dead and look forward to the pre-tribulational rapture. See you there!

  30. Yes, you have loads of credibility.

  31. Unsealed.org is under demonic attack. The Lord rebuke all of you.

    1. I agree.

      Romans 16:17 (KJV)
      17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.


    3. Another end times sign. This being such an excellent site to learn, I thought there would be an attack because it’s a threat to the enemy. When they dismiss out of hand all the answers to their questions it’s a dead giveaway that they’re not here to learn. We know now. Their blasphemous comments are right out of satan’s lying mouth. And then Oh I’m really a Christian see you in the sky !!! Make no mistake, it’s from the pit of hell. Where were these fools a year ago ? 2 years ago ? Why are they coming here now for info they can easily get doing an online search because they, ostensibly, don’t know or understand anything ?

  32. Restraint is tiring work, I'm sure.

    "In all their affliction he was afflicted, and the angel of his presence saved them: in his love and in his pity he redeemed them; and he bare them, and carried them all the days of old.

    But they rebelled, and vexed his holy Spirit: therefore he was turned to be their enemy, and he fought against them." (Isaiah 63)

    "The LORD is a man of war: the LORD is his name." (Exodus 15)

  33. May 14, 1948 to April 26, 2020 is 26,280 days. Divided by 360, which is a year according to the Hebrew calendar, equals 73 years. This knowledge, paired with the predictions made by Kaduri and others about the nature of the Israeli election on March 2nd, 2020, gives us a more accurate framework to look at.

    1. Thank you, Unknown! This is very interesting! Blessings.

    2. I did look up Kaduri and he mentioned Rosh Hashana which Paul Dawson said on the biblical calendar is March 26. He said there would be no govt in Israel for an extended period and that the two Benjamins will fight in Heaven. He said the Messiah is Yeshua. He said Jesus spoke with him. God can surely do anything He chooses and speak to anyone He chooses. So, I don’t want to dispute anything Kaduri said but the Holy Bible is where we study prophecy.

      He said it would happen in 5780 which is 2020. The Holy Bible is the inerrant infallible Truth so that’s where we get prophecy and not believe anything outside the Bible. With all that’s happening and having heard here and there what Kaduri said and March 26 being Rosh Hashana we are on the alert anyway and especially after the peace deal was revealed. It could be literally any second now.

    3. A prophetic year is 360-years. If to follow (Psalm 90:10) and calculate the number of days in 80-prophetic years we get (360 x 80 = 28,800-days).

      Friday, May 14, 1948 + 28,800-days = Sunday, March 21, 2027

      Looking to Torahcalendar.com for Sunday, March 21, 2027 we see,

      M1D12 on the Spiritual calendar, the day after Shabbat Ha-Gadol (The Great Sabbath) being the eighth day of creation, and the Spring Equinox (2024 UTC / 2324 IDT).

      Looking to the Civil calendar we see,

      12 Adar II, 5787 -- Herod's Temple Dedicated (11 BCE), the day before the Fast of Esther and two-days before Purim (Lots). This is a leap month on the Civil calendar.

      If Easter Sunday, March 31, 2024 were the mid-point (AoD) then the 28,800-days of Israel would end 1,084 days after their flight into the wilderness. 176-days to go until the full 1,260-days (and 2,550-days) would end on Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) on Saturday, September 11, 2027 - Sunday, September 12, 2027.

      That's the way the math work for that model at least!

      Happy hunting

    4. Archangel, to respond directly to what you had said, as I was the 'unknown' poster who had mentioned it, different elements of the other predictions I mentioned have already been proven. Yes, the 5780 prediction is one of them, but also the fact that the election at that time would be between two Benjamins. That is far too specific of a prediction, that has since come true, to ignore. I am not saying Kaduri, or others, received this info from the Bible or from God, Himself. However, he was a notable kabbalist; a student and teacher of Jewish mysticism. His sources may not be our own, or what we would ever endorse, but they seem to be somewhat valid. When one prediction mentioned that the "messiah" would appear the sabbath after the election, it could have easily been referencing the false messiah. We have no way of knowing. Either way, my reference to the April 26, 2020 80-year deadline is also reference to the fact that it would HAVE to happen in close proximity to the election, one way or another.

    5. I think that we shouldn't take words of an occult kabbalist serious, because satan is the father of lies and sometimes his predictions come true. But always mixed with lies.

    6. Pastor Rich - In order for Daniels day count and that we see in Johns account of 2550 to properly align with the lunar cycle we must have a total of 86 new moons in the 7 year time frame. Those time frames are:
      Sept 26, 2014 - Sept 18, 2021 (not much here especially since we are well past the mid-point)
      Sept 22, 2017 - Sept 14, 2024 (this one intrigues me the most, and hopefully something occurs in March/April 2021)
      Sept 28, 2022 - Sept 20, 2029
      Sept 24, 2025 - Sept 16, 2032

      Just something to consider time frame wise

    7. Mike,

      Can you provide a reference for "must have a total of 86 new moons?" I'd like to take a look at it.


    8. Keith James. Hal Lindsey had mentioned St Malachy’s prophecy of the popes which seems to be accurate esp this last Pope. He is full blooded Italian and the name he picked is Peter Romanus when translated. I don’t want to offend God by going on anything other than His Holy Word and He is protecting us by forbidding it. But there are so many details about the end times in Daniel, Rev, 1 Thes that that’s what I put my heart and mind in. As for the other prophecies from other sources ,,,even a broken clock is right twice a day. Lol.

    9. "and the name he picked is Peter Romanus when translated"

      I'm curious about this. Do you have a link or source?

    10. Hi Gary. Sorry...work. Here’s one.


    11. Now Tom Horn thinks it’s the next Pope.


    12. And here’s another.


    13. And another.


    14. Archangel, take heart in the fact that God included a story of a psychic who successfully predicted business matters in the book of Acts. It's clear that she was successful, because it mentions that many men were angry that Paul had casted a demon out of her, because she was no longer able to assist them. So God is fully aware of premonitions and their abilities/limitations. Keep in mind, I AM noting their could be a lie present, in that the prediction could be about an appearing of "the messiah," but could easily be foretelling the arrival of the Antichrist. Think about the audience of the prediction; the Jews. Would this not help his case if the Jews believe his coming was foretold about by own of their own? So by no means am I saying that anyone is definitely predicting the rapture. But I do know the antichrist's appearance is supposed to be in some kind of proximity to the rapture event. The Bible is what I believe to be the only inerrant source of truth, but this is merely a point of interest.

    15. Greg Lauer at alittlestrength.com has an intriguing article about the AC possibly being a Gentile which the Jews won’t care about due to the strong delusion,


    16. And there’s the example of Pharoah’s magicians producing snakes like Moses did and King Saul going to a medium to find a familiar spirit. What this all reinforces for me personally is to obey God and listen only to Him even though Maduri and Malachy stories are out there. They can’t be trusted. Only God. I put my faith in God only. For people that don’t know God, they may give credence to non-biblical prophecies not having spiritual discernment to do otherwise. God is right 100% of the time but I get what you mean by their being a point of interest.

    17. I am by no means suggesting we take these predictions as gospel. Only that we think on how that might fit within the framework the Bible gives us and deem it to be at least a time to watch closely.

    18. Keith James. Absolutely, you’re right. I am hearing a lot about people having dreams. Sometimes the same dream at the same time. Children are having them too. I watched a video about Purim. The Book of Esther is one of only 2 Books in the Bible (the other Song of Solomon) that doesn’t explicitly mention God but His Presence is felt throughout imho. Purim is not a feast ordained by God. So, then I saw the video of the celebration in Israel and they are dressing like they’re in The Walking Dead. Ghastly makeup, blood, a pregnant woman with the baby’s limbs protruding through a bloody belly. I have heard this being the “scourge” mentioned in Isaiah28:18

      Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:

      Since the peace deal has been introduced and it is the covenant with death, I find the costumes rather appropriate for the time.

    19. I think the peace deal is more of Jared Kushner’s doing than President Trump but it’s his administration so the buck stops with him. What I see is God constantly thwarting President Trump’s enemies and always giving him victory after victory. I know President Trump’s enemies can’t do anything to him without God’s say so. DJT is a true example of “When God is for you, who can be against you?” In one week, he’s acquitted, kills top Al Qadea leader in Yemen, gives the best SOTU in history and won the court case on emoluments. And the dems continue their quest to graduate so they can start high school.

  34. "Also note above that this is not stating that the Church of Philadelphia will be raptured, because it states they will enter heaven if they are VICTORIOUS during the time of testing."

    No. The victorious element of Philadelphia is in their endurance, which takes place before the planet enters into Trial. Meaning, is ongoing until harpazo, which for the world is tribulation. King Jeshua in Rev. 3 explicitly states that the members of the church of brotherhood will the 'kept' from the 'trial'.

    The members of Philadelphia and their spirit will depart together. No man knows their endurances.

  35. Romans 8:28 King James Version (KJV)
    28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
    ALL things, guys!
    Maybe someone is "close" and just playing devil's advocate.
    Paul had his Damascus Road...

    1. Maybe!

      Maybe someone else will come here looking for answers to find all of this mess -- at which point God will sort it all out in their heart.

      This is but one reason why I endure.

      Are you sure about Yom Kippur in 2027. I thought it was Oct 11 ?

    3. Yom Kippur in 2027 is October 11 but on the Civil calendar. The Ecclesiastic and Civil calendars are not in step that year.

    Questioning someones salvation is not a wise thing to do. I would never suggest that someone is not saved if they believe the trinity.
    I happen to understand its pagan origins. The council of nicea-the nicene creed 325 a.d..
    Pagan ideas began contaminating the pure Christian faith before the first century was over.
    At the council of nicea the sabbath day was changed from Saturday to Sunday because the pagans worshipped the sun.
    The catholic church has a dark history. The very hat that the pope wears was fashioned after the pagan fish god Dagon.
    The same pagan influence is where we get the Dec.25th date of Christs birth, the practice of decorating a tree and even the easter bunny.

    This is just for you A-angel. A trinitarian translation of Matt 27:46b

    ' My me, my me why have you forsaken me'.


    God is not the author of confusion.

    Heres another:

    If thou shalt confess with your mouth God and believe in your heart that God raised himself from the dead you shall be saved...? Alrighty then.

    Romans 10:9

    1. Sola Scriptura (scripture alone) is the principle I go by. The Catholic Church may be a bulwark for Christianity, and for that they do much good in the world, but they have many beliefs/practices that are not mentioned in scripture. The pope infallible? When he says Mary was born without sin and was assumed into heaven? When he says birth control is forbidden? When he says abortion is murder (nowhere mentioned in Scripture)? When he says priests have to be celibate? When he protects child molestors from accountability?

      Who made this man infallible?

      I'm with Luther and Calvin. If I can back something up with scripture, then it doesn't matter if a priest, pastor or pope does everything they can to take me down. I don't live my life by the authority of one man.

    2. Abortion not murder? It's the sixth commandment. End of story. Birth does not equal personhood. Being a human being equals personhood, and a human being's existence begins at conception.

      The Bible says people are created in the image of God (Gen. 1:27).

      The Bible also explicitly says this creation occurs BEFORE BIRTH (Ps. 139:13).

      See also: Job 31:15; Ps. 22:10; Jer. 1:5; Ex. 21:22–23

    3. Ex. 21:22 is about a pregnant woman who gets harmed, causing a miscarriage, no? The punishment is monetary, not the same as for murder. Granted this is not the same as a woman choosing to have an abortion. But nowhere else in the Bible does it speak about what the punishment is for killing a fetus in the womb. Sixth commandment says not to "kill illegally" (Hebrew). Begs the question, what is "illegally"? - Zachary

    4. Why is pregnancy relevant at all? Why was Ex. 21:22 written? The Law already established that judgment would be an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. If there is no **harm** then the punishment is monetary. If there **is** harm, then the punishment is physical retribution. If death, then the proportional retribution would be death.

      As I mentioned above, the Bible already explicitly tells us that the creation of human beings occurs in the womb (Job 31:15; Ps. 139:13; Jer. 1:5). Birth is completely arbitrary to the discussion of personhood in regards to the Bible. God creates male and female in His own image (Gen. 1:27). For those subsequent to Adam and Eve, this creation occurs in the womb. Thus abortion is the destruction of a human being made in God's image just as post-birth "murder" is the destruction of a human being made in God's image. There's no way to get around this.

      Abortion has been practiced for thousands of years, but only became legal in 1935. Truly a sign of the times.

    5. One of the verses of the day on Biblehub was from Revelation, and Jesus identified Himself as both the root and descendant of David. How could He be from before David (his root) unless He is God? How could He be a descendant unless He was also man? I hope understanding this doesn't matter as much as believing the Gospel (How He died, was buried, and rose again. 1st Corinthians 15:1-4 and Romans (Confession of "Jesus is Lord" and belief that God raised Him from the dead)

  37. A Bible teacher I used to follow before he died once said that he wished people could be raptured when they expected to be, either pre-trib, mid-trib, post-trib, or not at all.

  38. I believe the wrath is not coming on the world simply for their unbelief in the Bible as the word of God. No, the wrath is coming because of people's sins! For which they have no excuse. Do you think God is going to give a thumbs up to the Freemasons with all their history of secrecy and machinations? Their occultism? I don't think so. Okay, so I believe that Jesus was and is God in only a literary sense, because much of the Bible is literature. Some people disbelieve in the prophecies of St. Malachy and St. Francis, about a final destroyer pope, because they weren't "authentic". Such people don't understand that we live in a matrix. It doesn't matter that the Gospel of John is ahistorical, or that those prophecies weren't "authentic". God writes our reality! Yet we have free will. A mystery beyond our human grasp.

    If you guys want to believe in the Rapture, I think that's fine. It won't harm anything. But I for one fully expect to live through the period of wrath. We have God's promise that good things lie in wait for us on the other side, if we make it through. Yahweh is not going to let his book be taken down by Freemasons. There is just no way that is going to happen. The Bible is going to come back stronger for having been attacked.

    If my words offended anyone here, I apologize. It was not my intent to attack anyone.

    1. Sin will certainly be judged... at the Great White Throne.

      But the Day of the LORD is a period of judgment for 1. the world's rejection of Christ (John 3:16-18), and 2. the nations' division of Israel.

      The pattern is representative of God's judgment on the Israelites in the wilderness for their unbelief.

      The world's wicked institutions will be overthrown in the midst of the judgment... but the ultimate ***reason*** or root cause is unbelief, because belief = pardon, and unbelief = already condemned.

  39. There is definitely an uptick all of a sudden in spiritual attack. I wonder why.

    We're getting close brothers and sisters.

    For the time being I'm switching off anonymous comments.

    1. Agreed, there is an uptick -- we feel it everyday in our ministry.

      Even still, God is on the move.

      Thank you, Gary!

  42. Zachary: You say: "When he says abortion is murder (nowhere mentioned in Scripture)"
    God says: Thou shalt not commit murder.....
    Abortion = Murder
    God knew Jeremiah BEFORE he was in his mother's womb! A child is a human before it is in the womb! God made the life....killing this life is murder.

    1. Exactly.

      The Bible says people are created in the image of God (Gen. 1:27).

      The Bible also explicitly says this creation occurs BEFORE BIRTH (Ps. 139:13; Job 31:15).

      See also: Ps. 22:10; Jer. 1:5; Ex. 21:22–23

      Birth = personhood is completely arbitrary. Just a modern invention. In fact, legal abortion wasn't even a thing until Iceland in 1935.


      Coronavirus 'kills Chinese whistleblower doctor Li Wenliang'

      Quoting, BBC,

      "A Chinese doctor who tried to issue the first warnings about the deadly coronavirus outbreak has died of the infection, Chinese media say.

      Li Wenliang was working as an ophthalmologist at Wuhan Central Hospital when he sent out a warning to fellow medics on 30 December.

      Police then visited him to tell him to stop, as authorities tried to keep the news under wraps."

      Dr Li was only 34 years old.

      Words fail me in losses like this. In many ways Dr Li represents all those who have lost their life to Coronavirus. His is a most personal face to the impersonal face of 2019-nCoV.

      (John 11:35)

    3. Seriously.

      Guess what? Now the Chinese government is saying he suffered heart failure but was revived and is in critical condition.

      It is hard to know what to believe these days.

      Reports and the specifics of his censure and threats to him are shocking. All a taste of what is yet to come I suppose.

    4. Blessings Pastor Rich. I read the Dr’s parents both have the virus. The videos on YT of what is happening to the people is heartbreaking. They put a little girl in a place for the sick and I don’t think she’s sick and she said, “I miss my mommy.” They are sealing apartment bldgs shut like in the movie “Quarantine.”

    5. I am extremely introverted but I feel like I just want to be home with my cats and keep watching. So much is happening and if I’m at work, I have to, you know, work.

    6. You may be seeing the same video I am Archangel. Yes, it is surreal to see doors being welded shut; piles of gravel at entry ways and I saw the video of the little girl too. The woman shooting the video would not hold her or go near her.

      It's hard to say what is going on there given the level of control the Chinese government is placing upon the people. Today is the day that factories were suppose to re-open and get back to business. It's doubtful that this will happen. Some estimates have placed it well into April before factories re-open.

      China is known as the world's factory. With so much production brought to a halt the global economy will take a hit as a result. I am not lamenting the loss of industrial capacity or the shortage of goods coming out of China. The loss of human life and the deadly toll being exacted by death and hades has barely begun. Whether this is the rise of the pale horse rider or a shadow of their coming I cannot be sure. But the judgement(s) being poured out on the beast system cannot be ignored.

      I cannot blame you for being extremely introverted. Not at all. Jesus withdrew at times when He needed refreshing and to privately connect with the Father. May I encourage you to do the same in these times. Connect with the Father in your quiet place. Seek Him in truth and spirit and fullness of worship.

      Commit to offering Him your "Yes" and go forth in your daily commission and be a beacon of hope and light in this dark place. Share yourself and all that God has given you as an offering to Him knowing it is Christ that strengthens you at all times and in all things.

      Lifting you in prayer to be courageous in prayer and love.


    7. Blessings Pastor Rich. Your kindness and heartfelt understanding makes me realize how far I still have to go. I have never seen you express yourself without respect, a sincere desire to teach and the humility to do so effectively for the Lord. I deeply appreciate it. I find myself pondering what the Apostle Paul said about men and women staying single in order, for one example, not to be distracted from serving the Lord. God has removed several people from my life and I find myself very grateful because they’re no longer using up my mental and physical energy. Especially in these last days, we need to be in His Word and prayer like never before. Panic can set in if we drift too far from our Source.

      Thank you for your constant encouragement and prayers. God bless you abundantly.

    Hi all Brothers and Sisters !

    I am a francophone from the province of Quebec and my following text is an English translation which I hope will not be too weird for you. I am very grateful to the Lord Jesus for introducing me to your site on sharing and searching for the signs that precede the coming of our Savior. I became interested in eschatology since my conversion almost 34 years ago. I have several such websites that I visit every day and I can see that Daniel's prophecy in Chapter 12: 9.10 that tells us that the word will be revealed at the time of the end is about to be fulfilled.

    Let me send you the link to the website of Claude Ignerski who is a brother who has been working for years to understand the chronology of the 6000 years of the biblical calendar in relation to Genesis 1:14 and all past historical and prophetic events, present and future. The biblical calendar would be luni-solar 12 months of 360 days per year with a thirteenth month added every six years.

    With Daniel's book 9: 24-27 over the 70 weeks of years, he explains that the prophecy is divided into 3 distinct phases.

    The first phase was completed at the beginning of verse 26 with these words: "After the sixty-two weeks, an anointed will be entrenched" when the Lord Jesus Christ was crucified.

    We would now be in the countdown to the second phase with the beginning of verse 25 with these words: "Know it, then, and understand! From the moment the word announced that Jerusalem will be rebuilt to the Anointed, the Driver, seven weeks ago"; that is, we must count 49 years according to the luni-solar biblical calendar (360 days per year - 1 month of 30 days added every 6 years) from the announced word to rebuild Jerusalem; announced a few years after the 6-day war of 1967.

    The third phase of the prophecy will begin with verse 27 with these words: "He will make a strong alliance with many for a week! ,...

    You guess that by this calculation, the return of the Lord Jesus Christ is upon us! I invite you to listen to the last 3 parts (video in French with available translation: 72, 73 and 74) to understand how he came to be persuaded of this revelation by the Holy Spirit.

    At the sight of all the signs that the Lord encourages us not to miss!

    1 Thessalonians. 5: 20 But look at all things; Remember what is good; …



  44. We certainly live in interesting times. The Corona virus... Honestly, I'm not sure what to think of that. People seem to get hysterical when it seems like it just essentially another strain of flu? I mean, it's a respiratory infection that mostly impacts the immune compromised and elderly, right? And I'm not seeing statistics that prove it to be worse than a bad flu epidemic. So, I guess I just don't see this, by itself, as anything super noteworthy. Having said that, as has been pointed out before, the world economy seems to teeter on the brink of meltdown and I can totally see something like this toppling the tower. And China has been doing it's best to flex more control over it's people (anyone else hear that people with potential exposure are being given ankle monitors like criminals to ensure their house arrest is maintained?)

    The Locust plague is unbelievable too.

    Maybe both of these will explode into even greater problems, if the Rapture is soon. Or maybe they'll all fizzle out as the restrainer continues to work.

    1. People are 'freaking out' because they sense something is different about all these things going on. Internal alarm clocks going off all the time, basically. We are not used to the amount of information we get on a daily basis from places all around the world. News used to take weeks or months to travel that far and now it only takes seconds. Compounding on this is the pace of the 'modern' lifestyle. Decisions need to be made faster than ever, and it's just not possible to verify all the sources you listen to... something the enemy is using against us...

      Rather than a flood of water to drown us... it's a flood of information coming at us 24/7...

    2. I'm with you on that one! Sounds like they named it after a beer.
      Just like Bill gates said "you can hide a lot designer viruses in those vaccines"
      World depopulation agenda!

    3. There is no doubt in my mind that vaccines started off as a helpful aid... same as medicines and antibiotics...

      But I no longer trust the process when they force them upon people... People should always have the final say about whether they take them or not. We just no longer know what is in them... we never really did.

      I think the rise in so many health problems today is probably a result of accidents, badly produced batches, cutting corners, and probably a few bad actors as well... If we're going to force these things on people, there should be extreme testing done first...

      I look forward to the future when such things will no longer be needed...

    4. Gregg--Prophetically interesting that you mentioned Corona beer! I shared something I believe the Spirit of the Lord brought to my attention related to that company. It's in this article if you're curious--

    5. Wanted to let you know I shared the link because there is a photo to go with the info--not because I need more readers♥

  45. https://www.huffpost.com/entry/abortion-what-the-bible-says-and-doesnt-say_b_1856049

    "Exodus 21:22-25 describes a case where a pregnant woman jumps into a fight between her husband and another man and suffers injuries that cause her to miscarry. Injuries to the woman prompt the normal penalties for harming another human being: an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, a life for a life. Killing the woman is murder, a capital crime.

    The miscarriage is treated differently, however — as property loss, not murder. The assailant must pay a fine to the husband. The law of a life for a life does not apply. The fetus is important, but it’s not human life in the same way the pregnant woman is."

    1. Zachary--Gary has it right on this one. If you study the Hebrew words for "child" and "fruit" in Exodus 21:22-25 , it describes the pregnant woman's newborn as a "child"--a little person. That is why she is described as "with child" not as "with fetus".
      Also the verse is including BOTH the mother AND her child regarding punishment if there is any harm: "If men strive, and hurt a woman with child, so that her fruit depart from her..."

  46. This comment has been removed by the author.

  47. Man's law is one thing, God's law quite another.
    In the 6th Commandment, He's quite clear about not killing.
    * * * * *
    The law aside, any woman who has ever carried a child knows that the baby is alive (and often kicking) inside her.
    Women don't just get fat over a 9 month time span, then all of a sudden pop out a fully formed human!
    For some it isn't even 9 months - my twin brother and I were born at a little over 7 months.
    The point is, the baby is growing and developing from the moment of conception.
    This is easily verified by ultrasound and has been profusely documented.
    The law may not want to quantify the time frame for personhood, but it's really a no brainer.
    Life begins at conception.
    Therefore, deliberately taking that life qualifies as murder.
    * * * * *
    Just gonna throw it in there.
    The whole "my body my choice" is nonsense.
    Women have a choice as to whether or not to use birth control.
    These days you can get a shot good for 6 months!
    The baby's body is NOT your body.
    Yes, it's dependent upon the mother for nourishment -
    just like it will be for the next 18+ years of its' life!
    * * * * *
    Just because you have the right to do something, doesn't make it the right thing to do!

  48. I should have clarified the comment a bit as both a response to previous comments and as a reflection of a "signs of the times in so far as the Holy Spirit as the Restrainer "pulling back".

  49. There is a point of no return, when the Holy Spirit
    leaves the person never to return.
    God stamps reprobate on your forehead, and you believe a lie and are damned.
    There are no believers at "The Great White Throne Judgment Seat of Christ".
    It exists to show why you are going to be thrown alive in the lake of fire,
    where the Devil, Beast and False Prophet are.

    Looks like Bibi will do this before the election.

    1. Annexing the West Bank will certainly cause a war in the Middle-East.

    2. Even if they don't read the NT, haven't they read Amos? Joel? Daniel? Can't they see the Day of the Lord approaching, which will be triggered by their division of the land? Well many of the original Zionists were totally secular. The state of Israel is supposed to be based on the historic right of their people to the land, yet they seemingly pay no attention to Biblical prophecy, which this historic right is based on. Odd.

    1. China refused help from the CDC. Sulphur dioxide levels rising due to cremations. Trucking companies are shutting down which means groceries stores will not get their deliveries. Stores have 3 days of food. Stock up on everything you can. Pet food, water, etc.

  52. Blessings Moin. This fulfills Jesus saying in Matthew 24:16

    “Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:”

    There has to be Jews living in Judea for this to happen. Astonishing fulfillment of prophecy right in front of us.

  53. Many more astute than I were expecting this.

  54. Archanfel....Exactly as I see it. When the A of D occurs...and now all those Israeli settlements out in the west bank are surrounded by Palestinians,...the jews better flee to the mountains pronto!..as Matthew 24:16 says.

  55. StanFoster. It’s terrifying and exciting. I am getting N95 medical masks while I still can and stocking up on things I need everyday. Exciting because our King is coming to get us. This is becoming a juggernaut. Much like President Trump is. Lol !

  56. I’d rather have the stuff and not need it than the alternative. Glad I went through a prepper stage years ago and bought batteries, lanterns, MREs, shortwave radio, a little butane stove.

  57. Archangel, with all respect Jesus is not your King, he is Israels king. He is your your Lord and savior and mine.
    Its hard to say how much we will have to endure until the Rapture but I have not done what you have done and may consider doing it.

    1. Tell Israel that. See how fast you can then run.

  58. President Trump has declared a health emergency which hands US Sovereignty over to the WHO. Not good.

    Hat tip: Walking Home

  61. Im an old school guy, I use a youngs concordance and what I see are numerous scriptures at the end of each gospel where Jesus is going through the last 40 horrible, torturous hours of his life. The Roman soldiers mocking him as being King of the jews and even nailing a sign on his cross saying the same.
    They ( the Jews) thought that the redeemer would be a military figure who would rescue them from the military oppression of the romans. All they had to do was read the Old Testament prophecies in Isaiah and Psalms to know that he had to die.

  62. You know that’s something I could never figure out. Moses gave them the Torah. They respected Moses. He told them about “that Prophet.” They knew the Scriptures. When Herod was panicking about Jesus being born King of the Jews he knew to ask the scribes where will He be born and they LOOKED it up and told him “Bethlehem.” Then again, if God parting the Red Sea, making water come out of a rock, make bread fall from Heaven, send 10 plagues on Egypt, Jesus raise Lazarus from the dead, heal the blind, deaf and lame didn’t make them believe, then they prove what Jesus told them, “If another comes in his own name, you will receive him.” I wasn’t there when God did all this but I know He did. Jesus said Blessed are those who believe without seeing. Blindness in part has comes to the Jews as the Apostle Paul said. He was willing to go to hell if all of the Jews would believe. Jesus wept over Jerusalem. And now something far worse than the Holocaust is coming. Pray for them.

    A new update is available from Paul Dawson today (2/9/20) with excerpts from an official announcement by David Friedman, US Ambassador to Israel, on the division of the land and the setting apart of New Palestine.

    DIVIDING GOD'S LAND! Breaking the Everlasting Covenant.

    27 "And he shall make a strong
    covenant with many for one week,
    and for half of the week he shall
    put an end to sacrifice and
    offering. And on the wing of
    abominations shall come one who
    makes desolate, until the decreed
    end is poured out on the desolator."

    (Daniel 9:27 ESV)

  65. The Peacemaker
    His Majesty King Abdullah II is the 43rd generation direct descendant of the Prophet Mohammad. King Abdullah II assumed his constitutional powers as Monarch of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan on February 7th, 1999, the day his father, the late King Hussein, passed away.

    In November 2001, Abdullah II outlined an Arab peace plan based upon his "two basket approach," which involves a collective Arab guarantee of Israel's security as well as Israel's economic integration into the region, coupled with the creation of a Palestinian state.

    In the Apostle Paul's first letter to the Church at Thessalonica, he told them that before the Rapture would occur an event would take place that would leave no doubt of the impending Rapture. He told them to watch for "the dead in Christ to rise first" on the Jewish Feast of First Fruits,Then we which are alive and remain 40th days later.

    This is an event that will mimic an event that took place at the time of Jesus' resurrection and is recorded in the Gospel of Matt 27:52-53.

    1. Hi Gregg, thank you for your comment on the dead in Christ and the harpazo. Could you please tell me where it is written in the Bible that we leave 40 days after the believers died in Jesus? And where is it written that it will be during the Jewish feast of the first fruits? Thank you in advance! May the Lord bless you all and may His grace accompany you! And Maranatha !!! Carole

    2. Paul taught that the “set time” for the dead to rise was cast as a shadow into the path of the Church just prior to the opening of the first seal on the book of Revelation.
      According to Revelation 6, the man on the white horse comes in peace, then is followed by war and famine and death. But the beginning of the end times is not war, it’s peace! That peace opens the first seal. But before that can happen, the restraining force, the Church has to be taken out of the way. Just by being here, we are in the way of the peace, because it occurs after us.
      According to Paul, part of being taken out of the way, is the dead in Christ rising.
      Now the feast of first fruits is being cast as a shadow. On that day Christ rose to fulfill the prophecy and complete another part of the Messiah role. Also on that day, bodies of many saints rose and went into Jerusalem and were seen by many. They are part of the shadow of first fruits that we, the Church, receive, when Messiah comes for us. Paul prophesies them to the Thessalonians.
      So, what do dead rising and being seen in Jerusalem have to do with the Christian Rapture? The idea is for Christians, who already accepted Jesus as the Messiah, to watch for the dead to rise and warn the Jews. By seeing that, Christians would know the day of, and be able to watch their redemption come to pass, just as God intended.
      Lets start with the “role” of the Messiah. Messiah, Savior, Deliverer, Christ, was a role. The person that would come to fill that role would have to fulfill all the prophecies about him. Isaiah 61 lists some of the things that the Messiah would do, and one of those things was to set the captives free.
      But, the role of the Messiah was summed up in one place. The prophet Jonah was the only sign given of the Messiah, and it was given by Jesus himself. Now I know that Jesus only refers to the 3 days in the whale, but as a sign, the shadow of it is merely a silhouette of everything contained with in it, and it can’t be known unless you follow it to it’s source. And when you do, you see the whole enchilada. Nothing is hidden from your view, now that you are standing before it.
      So Jonah turns out to be a “type” of Messiah. He was a man, who gave his life willingly to save others. He died, was resurrected by God, and then went on a mission to save the people of Nineveh from God’s wrath by telling them to repent and be saved.
      The person that fulfilled that role would be the Messiah. That’s what the Jews were supposed to watch for. We know that it was Jesus, and so did Paul. He purposely uses the word Messiah as the substance casting the shadow, and not Jesus. He wants us to know that it’s the role, not the man that’s casting the shadow.
      Psalm 68:18 schedules an event in the role of the Messiah. It says that when he ascends on high, he will take captivity captive. That is to say that those captives that he had set free in fulfilling the prophecy of Isaiah 61, are now taken captive to himself, as He ascends to heaven.
      We know from Matthew that there were many captives who rose, and were seen in Jerusalem, but a question arises when Paul confirms this prophecy of Psalms 68, to the Ephesians, because when he does, he confirms that when Jesus ascended on high, he took a “multitude” captive to himself. That raises a question of how did it get from Matthews “many” to Paul’s multitude?
      Now, all of these pieces of knowledge are the bits and pieces that when put together make up the landscape of the events to be expected in the days just prior to the first seal being opened, at the time of the peace of Daniel 9:27.
      Why do I say expected? Because a shadow doesn’t change it’s substance.

    3. When our Messiah comes for us, it will be at the same time, as it was when he came to fulfill the covenant with the Jews. The “set time”, that He set on their calendar. That’s how He arrives in our (the grafted on’s) future, as shadows of those things that occurred in their day. Now their “new day” is to be in the time when the prophecy of Daniel is clearly being seen on the stage of history.
      Because Paul taught that we have to be taken out of the way first. But before that can happen, the dead in Christ will rise! And, they will rise, right on time! The dead rise on First Fruits! And, they will go into the holy city, and they will be seen by many!
      They will be warning the Jews, once again for 40 days, that the Messiah to whom they are giving their trust, is a false deliverer. That Jesus is to return soon, and that only repentance will keep them from the Wrath of God, which begins in 40 days.
      As did Jesus before, to fulfill the role, they will warn the Jews for 40 days, and “THEN” we which are alive and remain, including the many with bodies, shall be caught up, together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the Air, and so be with Him forever. And of course, 40 days after the resurrection is the Ascension of Jesus into Heaven. And on that day, He took a multitude of captives captive to himself as he ascended on high.
      That is the picture of the event we call the catching away, the Rapture. Jesus set the time himself because there was no “set time” on the calendar of the Jews for a Rapture. Just as the Church was kept secret in the mind of God until it was needed, the timing of the Rapture is kept secret. And just as the roadmap of the Church was written into the Tabernacle in the Wilderness, centuries before it was revealed to Paul, the timing for the final events of the Church age are likewise written into Paul’s words centuries before they are needed to be understood by the intended in their time.
      So, when Paul tells the Thessalonians to Watch, he knew what he had already told them, that’s why there is no explanation of what to watch for. In his precision, Paul would not have told them to watch for something they could not see! He told them to watch for the dead in Christ to rise! Because they rise first! Then we, which are alive, and remain (these 40 days) will be caught up! And, together with those already in the clouds, will meet the Lord in the air, and so shall begin our forever with Him. Alleluia, and God bless.
      Colossians 2:16-17

    4. Also 1 Thessalonians 3:13-15
      concerning them which are asleep,
      them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
      shall not prevent them which are asleep.
      2 Corinthians 5:4-8

      1 Thessalonians 4:14-18

    6. WOW!!! Thank you my brother! A very good explanation! God bless you! Maranatha!!! Carole

    7. You are so very welcome!!

  66. The Little Horn will have to be a king or ruler. He must be of a small people. His kingdom must be from the Seleucid portion of the Old Grecian Empire, which is also the Roman portion of the Moslem Empire. Also, he must be deeply involved in the covenant that brings resolution to the Jews temple and sacrifice dilemma.

    Besides that, the scene must be set with a warrior as the Egyptian King. This king of the south will be at odds with the Little Horn and his kingdom at the end time. However, the King of Israel must be a dove, in order to make peace.

  67. Since the Temple Mount is in Jerusalem, which has to be the center of conflict. The confirmed covenant will usher in peace and security. The man on the white horse indicates this.
    There must be ten kings from the territory of the Moslem Empire that meet, form a loose confederacy, and give authority to one other King. This king will uproot three of the ten and the other seven will give him power.
    Finally, the Little Horn must have a kingdom given to him in honor. According to Daniel, this is the required stage setting. This must all be in place prior to the events that begin the final seven years of the Jews destiny.

  68. As Christians, we have a separate and different conclusion to our covenant, than that of the Jews. And, although Daniels prophecy is written to the Jews, about their covenant's conclusion, we benefit in watching them, because God closes His covenant with the New Creatures in Christ, before He begins the final events designed to convince the Jews that Jesus was the Messiah. We were already convinced of that, thus we don't need any more convincing. That's why He wants us to watch! So the conclusion of our covenant won't take us
    like a thief in the night; we have His word on that!

  69. When will Israel annex the West-Bank? I hope as soon as possible!

  70. 108 = Star (Venus) and Crescent (Moon). Turkish flag. The black night of the "Islamic State" (Palestine) is coming soon to a theater near us.

    1. 33 sections of the circle in the UN flag, and 13 leaves on each branch. 33 names for the Antichrist in the OT, 13 in the NT. Denton TX is at 33.13 lat and is 0.0 deg south of the Manitoba Legislative Building in Winnipeg, a Masonic recreation of Solomon's Temple (3rd temple), which is in the exact center of the North American continent. Prince William was 33 in 5776 (7+6=13) and turned 34, 13 days before July 4th 2016 (drop the zero, 216 is 6x6x6 and 21/6 is 3.5 yrs or 42 months of the Beast given authority)

    2. Those kings will be granted authority with the Beast for ONE HOUR. Just one hour.

  71. There is just so much wrong with the note above. If we do not understand 'shortening of days' as it is not explained in the bible, we dont look to someone called 'prophet' unless its Ezekiel, Jeremiah, Isaiah, etc.
    Especially if it is being said 'losing your salvation' - losing implies we did something to earn it and keep, which is also erroneous. Its all HIM

    Your day counts are a 14 year period using 1335 twice. Hopefully you are not laser focused on this and open to other timelines since none of us really know

  72. At https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2020/feb/06/humanity-under-threat-perfect-storm-crises-study-environment this:

    "Humanity under threat from perfect storm of crises – study

    Climate, extreme weather, biodiversity, food and water crises could lead to ‘systemic collapse’
    The world is facing a series of interlinked emergencies that are threatening the existence of humans, because the sum of the effects of the crises is much greater than their individual impacts, according to a new global study.

    Climate breakdown and extreme weather, species loss, water scarcity and a food production crisis are all serious in themselves, but the combination of all five together is amplifying the risks of each, creating a perfect storm that threatens to engulf humanity unless swift action is taken."

    This perfect storm is nothing else but the judgments during the Tribulation Period. But than much worse than what is happening now.

  76. I heard a while back in Spirit that the INFLUENCE of the restrainer is no longer on the earth. re 2 thess 2...

    Also in 2019 there has been a vast increase in darkness/ satanic stuff/lawlessness. Also global events have been quicken...'days shortened' re matt 24....

    Lately I got '6th seal' watch for the SIGNS. The importance is on the SIGNS??? I always get cryptic messages. Understand seems to come at a later date.

    Most recent dream from a couple of days ago.... is seeing many, many women birthing babies from many different nations, ethnics etc. in the aethers/sky and hearing the word "manchild' Don't understand what it means tho. Anyways...ask G_d and Jesus for discernment on this.

    2 thess 2...The Man of Lawlessness

    5 Don’t you remember that when I was with you I used to tell you these things? 6 And now you know what is holding him back, so that he may be revealed at the proper time. 7 For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way. 8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming. 9 The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie, 10 and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. 11 For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie 12 and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.

    rev 12....The Woman and the Dragon.......The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that it might devour her child the moment he was born. 5 She gave birth to a son, a male child, who “will rule all the nations with an iron scepter.”[a] And her child was snatched up to God and to his throne. 6 The woman fled into the wilderness to a place prepared for her by God, where she might be taken care of for 1,260 days.

    Will the 'manchild.'...which also represents the 'Body of Christ ' With Jesus as the Head/Leader aka body of believers go to heaven soon? Don't know the meaning but I get that impression of it. I could be wrong so ask G_d and Jesus to discern these things.

    Also today a recollecton of a very old dream....a big white marble-like banquet hall with long white clear sheer panels draped against the walls of this room. In this room are many circular tables with white linen table clothes and plate settings. There were also small white cards on each sittings. The chairs were of gold and some sort of fancy wire-like design to them. Very elegant in style. I was in the middle of this room standing, and I was wearing a simmering long white gown but the focus was on the room. The room was very sunny-like and bright. It was also quite empty, just myself there and I didn't see the head table either for it was out of my line of sight....just the middle of this room only.

    This pic reminds me of it somewhat... https://marrymetampabay.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/02/19-1.jpg

    1. The restraining force is the Church(the body of Christ)and since the wrath of God cannot fall on His Son twice, it needs to be removed before the 1st seal is opened.

      And also There is absolutely no PROOF of a ball earth.
      The Earth does not spin, and the sun and the moon are inside the firmament!
      The earth is exactly How it is described in the bible, FLAT and Domed.
      Even NASA and the Military admits, they can't get through the ferment.
      They have tried!
      short version
      long version

  77. about time being shortned and also about the reference of 1/3 of the day, 1/3 of the night...

    this came to mind about earth's rotation...


    "This week's deadly Asian Quake and Tsunami may have been so powerful, that it changed the rate of Earth's rotation. In a Reuters article, a NASA geophysicist theorizes that the quake compacted the Earth enough to speed up the planet's rotation by 3 microseconds. A second article says the quake moved undersea tectonic plates by up to 98 feet, shifting islands near Sumatra out to sea an unknown distance. Also, a USGS team wants images from commercial satellite operators to help pinpoint coastline damage. snip...


    Did the earthquake that spawned the recent Indian Ocean tsunami affect the earth's rotation?
    Scientific American: Did the undersea earthquake affect the earth's rotation?

    Models predict that the earthquake should have affected rotation of the earth by shortening the length of a day by about three microseconds, or three millionths of a second. This happens because during the earthquake one of the tectonic plates [the India plate] subducted down beneath another plate [the Burma plate]. The downward mass movement of the plate changed the earth's rotation just like a spinning ice skater bringing her arms closer to her body increases her rotation. When the earth spins faster, the days are shorter.


    Day the Earth moved: How the earthquake tilted the world's axis by 25cm (and could even cost us a microsecond a day)
    The earthquake that struck Japan on Friday was so powerful that it actually moved the whole planet by 25cm, experts say.

    According to Italy's National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology the 9.0 magnitude 'quake was so powerful it shifted the axis around which the Earth rotates.

    And the U.S. Geological Survey reported that the main island of Japan has been shifted 2.4 metres by the force of the disaster.

    The shift to the Earth's tilt will have profound, if subtle effects on the length of the day and the passage of the seasons.

    Note...these are only small differences in time and rotation but I did find it interesting.

  78. Got this article come to mind today...

    "Their Sky Has Changed!" Inuit elders sharing information with NASA regarding Earth's "WOBBLE"

    Solar and lunar eclipses fall on Jewish holy days

    The First Blood Moon And Why It Is Special

    we had i think 2 meteor swarms last september of 2019 but also meteor showers could also signify, stars fall from heaven.
    can't find those news articles tho...

    info on meteors aka fireballs


    Earth is approaching the same "meteor swarm" that may have caused an entire forest to explode in 1908

    could only find this news article...

    powers of the heavens be shaken...not seen yet.

    Note a few days back I heard in Spirit...6th seal...watch for the SIGNS. The emphasize was on the 'signs' tho. What that means, I don't know. But was led to these news articles today. Especially the inuit news article.
    Please discern thru the Holy Spirit .

    2. Oh, goodness...........

  79. Predictions:1) Barge will go over Niagara Falls on March 4th2) Trump will die of a heart attack on March 11th3) The End Times will begin on Pentecost on June 7th, 2020
    After the barge goes over on Mar 4 make sure watch this entire videohttps://youtu.be/5PgifKlhfIk

    If the day were knowable, at this point most people would not believe anyone else anyway, and so it makes sense that this is how God would do it. He would use someone to learn His big picture of signs, and reveal these predictions ahead of time in order to prove this big picture of signs and the conclusions for the date. This is how prophecy works, and it is the reason why 1/3 of the Bible is prophecy. For God to prove the matter. The testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy, Rev 19:10. 
    This is a link to a video that explains how it is known that the barge that has been stuck on the rocks of the Niagara River for 101 years will go over Niagara Falls on March 4th, 2020. 7 days later President Trump will die of heart attack on March 11th, 2020. These conclusions are absolutely, and inextricably tied to the following conclusions, and therefore, when these events come to pass on Mar 4 and Mar 11 this will prove certain the following other conclusions. 1) The date the End Times begins is knowable, and it is certain beyond a reasonable doubt that it will be on Pentecost on June 7th, 2020. 2) The identities of the two Antichrists are knowable, and it is certain that they are Pope Francis and Barack Obama. 3) The Lord is pouring out judgment warning signs specifically on the American evangelical church for its Nicolaitan deeds and doctrine (Calvinism and Free Grace), that Jesus said he hates in Revelation chapter 2. The nation and the world is a mess because the Church is a mess, and judgment begins with the Church. 4) The Lord's End Times signs is a big picture puzzle, in which each piece is dependent on the others pieces for their full, true intended meaning. This is why these conclusions are inextricably tied together. When these events come to pass on Mar 4 and Mar 11 this will prove that this method of interpreting the signs as a whole, rather than isolated events, is correct. Similar to how the Bible needs to be interpreted as a whole, rather than through selectively using isolated passages. If you truly love the Lord's signs, after these events come to pass I'm sure you will want to watch every minute of this long video series that explains the Lord's big picture of End Times signs. Every minute is important and mind boggling. When these events come to pass it will arguably be the most important achievement of the watching community. I believe the watching community should unite around, and focus on, getting this information out about how this was known ahead of time. God bless.

    1. Why do you think Pentecost is on June 7th, 2020 (15th of Sivan, 5780)?
      The 6th of Sivan, 5780 Shavuot I, Pentecost(is May 29, 2020.

      The Jewish Feast of First fruits which celebrated the promise of the full harvest yet to come. Truly a Feast of promise, and required an offering of an omer of barley flour, made from sheaves of barley from an unattended field, which had never been watered or fertilized.
      Finally, occurring fifty days after First Fruits, the feast of Pentecost is celebrated as the final day of First Fruits. This last day was a time for a new offerings of a loaf of bread, the completed product of the harvest.

  80. Put simply "The dead rising reference" has to do with Matthew 27:50-52
    Colossians 2:17 Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.
    Them which sleep in Jesus, God brings with Him
    Absent from the body, is to be present with the Lord.
    First Fruits is resurrection day and 40 days later is Ascension Day (Rapture Day).
    At some date in the future that day will happen is what Paul said to Watch for!!
