Footsteps of the Messiah

Friends, prepare yourselves for a rambling post.  I wouldn’t dare call this an article—more like a thousand thoughts I’m trying to get out of my head.  Publishing them puts my mind at ease.  Maybe you can help me sort through this...

- - -

More and more I see God in everything.  He’s all in all.  And I’m learning that in Him there is no contradiction.  There’s no double-mindedness within His being.  Thus, He’s either sovereign over everything or not sovereign at all.  He’s either made nothing arbitrary or everything arbitrary.  He either forgives completely or forgives nothing (Rm. 11:6; Gal. 2:21).  Nothing is impossible for Him or everything is impossible for Him.  All who call upon the Name of the Lord will be saved, or none who call upon His Name will be saved (Jn. 6:37–39; Rm. 10:9–13; 1 Cor. 12:3).

Religious legalism demands contradiction within God.  Progressive lawlessness demands contradiction within God.  Legalism is faith without grace.  Lawlessness is grace without faith.  They are both denials of the simplicity of the good news we preach.

...and I fear, lest, as the serpent deceived Eve in his subtlety, so your minds may be corrupted from the simplicity that [is] in the Christ.
- 2 Corinthians 11:3 (LSV)

Christ died... for our sins... was buried... and rose again.  Let this be our mantra and most deeply held belief.  Those who receive this message know that this is how God saves (Rm. 1:16).  Those who reject or distort this message, both outside of and within “Christianity,” are accursed.  It’s that simple.

You came from heaven to earth, to show the way
From the earth to the cross, my debt to pay
From the cross to the grave, from the grave to the sky
Lord I lift your Name on high

This most basic and simple precept of Christianity, what the Apostle Paul called πρῶτος (of chief, principal, or foremost importance: 1 Cor. 15:3), is the one doctrine most confused and muddled at the world’s Christian pulpits and seminaries.  This simple message, though found in one form or another in virtually every Christian denomination, seems to be incomprehensibly difficult for many to accept and understand.  And so many—Christian and non-Christian, alike—add and detract from the message rather than receiving the free gift of God.

What sort of religion is this that the primary message is one that doesn’t require any intellectual prowess, personal achievement, or moral accomplishment?  The message gives no deference to young or old, rich or poor, smart or dumb.  All can hear and believe.  This is a one-of-a-kind belief system that’s so unique because it is the genuine article.  This isn’t one of many faiths, it is the faith.  It is the call for the children of God to return to the house of our Father.  Our Father’s love for us and His stewardship over our lives is unconditional and perfect.  No matter how far gone you think you are, you’re not too far gone for God.  He’s already made a way back for you and all it takes is your genuine acknowledgment of the way itself (or should I say, Himself; Jn. 14:6).

The Risen One who atoned for all of our sins, iniquities, transgressions, and guilt (Isa. 53:5, 10–12; 1 Pt. 2:24; 1 Cor 15:3), is about to reappear in the sky.  He’s coming back.  And from the myriad of signs around us, we can hear His footsteps.  To those with ears to hear, they can hear Him, but to those clinging to this world, He’s coming like a thief (1 Thess. 5:3–4).  How tragic would it be to reject so great a salvation (Heb. 2:3) that is so freely obtained (Eph. 2:8–9).  The door to the Ark is closing fast and you could simply walk on board, baggage and all, but will you do it?

The sin-scarred prodigal son returns home

It’s evident to everyone and their mother that the hour is late.  It doesn’t take biblical faith to recognize that.  The world is panicking.  The nations are roaring.  Civilization has reached the climactic moment in its history and the Bible explains what happens next: the world will seek to divide God’s land and the fallen cherub will attempt to strike the Church one last time—unsuccessfully.

As we soon ascend into the heavenly realms, being hidden away in a glorious, protective abode, the spiritual dragon, that ancient serpent called “the Devil” and “Satan” will strike our heel, but we shall crush his head (Rm. 16:20; Rev. 12:1–5; Gen. 3:15–16; cf. Rev. 13:3).  Though he nips at our feet as we go up, nothing will stop our entrance into the presence of God—an entrance made ready by the blood of a new and everlasting covenant.  We will be born from above (Jn. 3; Gal. 4:26–31).

Consider the prophetic things that can be said to have happened in our generation and no other.  Time is clearly running out.

Coronavirus is now spreading in over 100 countries.  Could this be satan’s Revelation 12 attack?  If so, it looks to be a three-pronged attack:

1. The disease itself.  There is still a lot of debate about the real mortality rate.  Some are quite alarmist about it and others are greatly downplaying the risk.  We don’t really know.  The widely reported figure for weeks was about 2.1%.  That’s roughly 200 times deadlier than H1N1.  The most conservative estimate I’ve seen is .7%, which would be 70 times deadlier than H1N1, and even more than that compared to typical influenza.  However, with well over 100,000 confirmed cases and 4,000 confirmed deaths, the current mortality rate based on the data itself is 3.6%.  That is an extraordinarily high number.  Last week the World Health Organization was reporting a similar 3.4%.  If that data holds, 1-in-28 people who become infected will die.

According to estimates suggesting this will ultimately spread to 40–70% of the global population, that would result in over 110–200 million deaths (5–8 million in the U.S.).  Tens of millions of Christians around the world would be under threat.

It’s possible that global quarantine will slow the spread significantly, buying time for a vaccine and communal immunity to develop.

It’s also possible, as this report suggests, that within one to two months, hospital systems around the world will reach a breaking point and the mortality rate could go much higher.  Remember, the .7–3.6% mortality figures are only meaningful as long as severe cases can be treated at a hospital.  A large portion of those infected will require oxygen (> 10%).

2. Quarantine and societal collapse.  China and Italy are now completely locked down.  The number of areas being quarantined are increasing by the day.  It has been widely circulated that Christians in China have been under increasing persecution during this time.  The Church could soon find itself under global lockdown and under threat from economic and societal collapse (if not for our blessed hope).

3. Church gatherings prohibited.  The underground Church has thrived for 2,000 years, but something like this on a global scale is unprecedented.  Schools, workplaces, and large public gatherings are being restricted and even prohibited in many countries.  This could soon expand to Church gatherings.  This really brings Hebrews 10:23–25 into focus:

...may we hold fast the unwavering profession of the hope (for He who promised [is] faithful), and may we consider to provoke one another to love and to good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as [is] a custom of some, but exhorting, and so much the more as you see the Day coming near. (LSV)

We see the Day drawing near, not only of our glorious reunion with Christ, but also when we may no longer be able to meet with other brothers and sisters of the faith for corporate worship.

Another Sign in the Heavens?

I want to credit Dan for first spotting this alignment.  I’ll elaborate on it in a bit, but first I want to remind you of what has already transpired:

1. On September 23–24, 2017 an alignment of Leo, Virgo, Mercury, Mars, Venus, Jupiter, the Sun, and the Moon, perfectly satisfied a literal interpretation of the first two verses of Revelation 12.

2. Then on October 8, 2018, a confluence of four separate meteor showers, among which was an unusually strong Draconids display, may have satisfied all or part of the astronomical aspects of the next two verses in the sequence (vv. 3–4).

3. Finally, this April 3–4, Venus, the morning star, representing Christ (Rev. 22:16), will conjunct with the Seven Stars (the Pleiades), representing the Church (Rev. 1:20), for the first time in hundreds of years, as a possible fulfillment of the astronomical aspect of Revelation 12:5.  This occurs precisely 923 days after the Revelation 12 Sign on 9/23/2017, and less than one month after Venus had conjuncted with Uranus, which is a direct transliteration of the Greek word used in the Bible for “Heaven” (e.g., 1 Thess. 4:16).  This is a clear picture of Christ descending from Heaven to meet the Church, but is only an alignment.  It may not pertain to a major event itself.  Signs tell us we’re getting closer.

Now onto this other sign that I want to insert into the record for your further review...

As Paul Dawson has been pointing out, several Jewish sages now deceased, including Yitzhak Kaduri and Sasson Shoshani, seem to have pinpointed this time in history with surprising clarity.  This is all the more telling considering Kaduri seems to have come to a recognition of Christ shortly before his death (source).  Their prediction foretold of a political impasse in Israel extending through three electionsThere would be no fourth.  Kaduri wrote:

On the eve of the year 5780 (the upcoming Hebrew year), the year of corrections, there will not be a government in Israel for an extended period and the various camps will quarrel much without a decision on either side, and then, on Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish new year) itself, they will fight in heaven, the holy side against the side of evil, and G-d and His entourage will decide between them.  And this is all I can say, and from here I swore not to reveal more secrets and hidden things.

Kaduri also predicted:

There will come on the day that two ministers win the government in the land of Israel.  Both their names will be Benjamin and neither of them will succeed in establishing their government or kingship.

There are three key pieces from this prediction I want you to notice:

First, the impasse was predicted to be ongoing on the eve of Rosh Hashanah of 2019 (we’re in 5780 now).  Sure enough, this is exactly what transpired.  September 17th was the second election and resulted in another stalemate.

Second, Rosh Hashanah merely means “head of the year.”  The Jewish civil calendar, on which 5780 began in September 2019, has a different yearly starting point than the Bible.  According to the Bible, the head of the year is Nisan 1, which occurs in March or early April.  This year it is March 26th.  The point being, “the eve of the year 5780” would indeed refer to September 2019, but the later reference to Rosh Hashanah could be a reference to March 2020.

Third, the prediction shows a glimpse of what would transpire in Heaven: a war between the forces of good and evil.  The Bible predicted the same in Revelation 12:7–9.  Michael and his angels fight with Satan and his angels, and defeat them.  Satan and his allies are cast to the earth when they lose the war.

Now all the ancient pantheons had different names for gods, planets, stars, and constellations, but they all had major commonalities: Virgo was always depicted as the woman.  Leo was always the lion.  Jupiter was always the king planet.  Venus was always the morning star.  And Mercury and Mars were always representative of “the messenger” and war, respectively.

In the Bible, Gabriel is always delivering a message (Dan. 8:16; 9:21; Lk. 1:19, 26) and Michael is always warring (Dan. 10:13, 21; 12:1; Jd. 1:9; 12:7).  In terms of their astronomical type/symbol, the identities of Mercury and Mars are clear: Gabriel and Michael.

The next point I want to draw your attention to is that after the Church is removed from the earth, the Antichrist is revealed (2 Thess. 2:3, 7).  In Revelation 13 he is described as a seven-headed beast coming out of the sea.  Satan, having fallen to earth post-war in Heaven, gives his power to the beast (Rev. 13:2).  According to traditional/orthodox premillennialism, the first seal of Revelation 6 is the unveiling/unleashing of the Antichrist.  His fast global conquest is the first of 21 judgments upon the earth.

Let’s see how the Antichrist is described in Revelation 6:

And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard one of the four living creatures saying, as it were a voice of thunder, “Come and behold!”  And I saw, and behold, a white horse, and he who is sitting on it is having a bow, and there was given to him a garland, and he went forth overcoming, and that he may overcome. (vv. 1–2, LSV)

I’ll now draw your attention to the constellation Sagittarius, with a picture of how it was aligned yesterday on the final festival of the year—Purim:

March 10, 2020

Sagittarius is the one constellation depicting someone with a bow riding a horse.  You can’t make this up.  The disturbing centaur-like figure isn’t a modern invention either.  The depiction goes back to at least ancient Babylonia and would have been well known at the time of Christ (and years later when John received his vision).

To top this picture off, what do you see right next to the rider and his horse?  It’s Corona Australis.  Not just any crown, but something like a wreath or garland as the prophecy of Revelation 6 mentions.

As many have pointed out, Saturn could be a symbol of the fallen cherub, Satan.  We see what looks like battle lines drawn: Satan (Saturn) on one side and Michael (Mars) on the other.  And right in the middle is Jupiter, representing the corporate body of Christ (the “baby” born from Virgo’s womb in September 2017).  This isn’t the first time Satan contended with Michael over a body:

But even the archangel Michael, when he was disputing with the devil about the body of Moses, did not himself dare to condemn him for slander but said, “The Lord rebuke you!”
- Jude 1:9

Nine days later, on March 19th, the 23rd day of Adar, one week before the biblical Rosh Hashanah, Mars conjuncts with Jupiter as it advances toward the battle line:

March 19, 2020

Then on Nisan 1, Mars stands in the gap between Jupiter and Saturn.  Satan won’t lay hands on this body:

March 26, 2020

Finally, on the last day of the month, Nisan 5–6, Mars meets with Saturn to battle.  The War in Heaven is on.

March 31, 2020

Three or four days later, on the other side of the ecliptic, Venus, representing Christ, conjuncts with the seven stars of Pleiades, perhaps representing the glorified Church or the leaders of the churches—the collective assembly of Christians.

April 3, 2020

Remember, after Michael defeats Satan and casts him out of Heaven, the fallen cherub gives his power and authority to the seven-headed beast of Revelation 13—a person with a bow, riding a horse, and given a garland, earlier in the vision.  Saturn continues to approach Sagittarius until this September.  Shortly after entering the boundaries of the constellation, it stops and turns back.  It’s like a picture of passing the baton—Satan to the Antichrist.  Does the Time of Jacob’s Trouble (a.k.a., Daniel’s 70th Week) kick off this Fall?

September 2020

I have much more to add to this time permitting, and am looking forward to what you all have to say in the comments!  Many themes are converging and repeating very suddenly: dragons, weddings, crowns, escape, etc.  And I would be remiss if I didn’t share with you that according to data from the United Nations, the world population will hit 7,777,777,777 sometime next month, perhaps around the time of what might be the Revelation 12:5 Sign.

Post A Comment


  1. I have an old zippered small print KJ Bible that was my mother's. I almost never use the KJ because decades ago, I was walking past a bookstore in a mall & saw a big fat bible in the window, Amplified Bible! Wondering why it was so thick I went in & bought it which began my Bible studies in earnest. Looking back at how HE orders our steps, I still generally favor using the Amplified.

    BUT for some reason I went to this KJ today for something & out popped a yellow note referencing Psalms 22, 23, & 24 written by my mother & to my astonishment, her handwriting in the margins! Psalm 22, yesterday; Psalm 23, today; Psalm 24, tomorrow. I then read all 3 Psalms in this new Light.

    We know Psalm 22 is Jesus at the cross (what he did for us yesterday?). So Psalm 23 by virtue of Him at the cross is our today- - "fearing no evil." Then looking at Psalm 24 we find our tomorrow where she wrote "Jesus will come back" in the margin. SO I read it for myself & saw the RAPTURE IS in Psalm 24! Verse 3: "Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord? Verse 7: "Lift up your heads...." WOW!

    1. Thanks sfg. Like it! Hard to beat having a godly mother and you seem well blessed there! Nice little note and thought :)

      Following on from what you/your Mum has written, I've also seen it described like:

      Psalm 22, Past, Good Shepherd (John 10:11), The Saviors Cross
      Psalm 23, Present, Great Shepherd (Heb 13:20-21), The Shepherds Crook
      Psalm 24, Future, Chief Shepherd (1 Pet 5:4), The Sons Crown

      Oh... bring on tomorrow aye? Like king David returning when the reign of the demonically afflicted king Saul ended, so this world needs it's current demonic 'prince' gone and is in dire need of the return of the true King!

    2. sfg, i like that - Ps 22 (past), Ps 23 (present), Ps 24 (future).

      and Gary, let me highlight this paragraph in your article....Jesus is Coming Soon !


      3. Finally, this April 3–4, Venus, the morning star, representing Christ (Rev. 22:16), will conjunct with the Seven Stars (the Pleiades), representing the Church (Rev. 1:20), for the first time in hundreds of years, as a possible fulfillment of the astronomical aspect of Revelation 12:5. This occurs precisely 923 days after the Revelation 12 Sign on 9/23/2017, and less than one month after Venus had conjuncted with Uranus, which is a direct transliteration of the Greek word used in the Bible for "Heaven" (e.g., 1 Thess. 4:16). This is a clear picture of Christ descending from Heaven to meet the Church.

  2. Thank you Gary - surely these non-random, yet seemingly random thoughts are racing through all our minds - or they should be. I believe when we, the Church - His Body, can no longer agree on and proclaim the most simple and clear message of His Death Burial and Resurrection to pay the price for the sin of all mankind in His own Blood - we are surely about to go home for we do more harm than good. Blessings - Sherry

    1. 'When the power of the holy people has been scattered...' It's a verse in Daniel 11 or 12.

      What is the power of the holy people? Truth right? Well, it seems pretty scattered right now, right? ...

    2. Agreed Sherry!

      And Kris, perhaps the Church, a type of the holy people, are about to be scattered (can't gather anymore).

  3. I found no randomness in your thought process. It flowed nicely. It is nice to see it all presented correctly ;) ty Gary.

  4. As an amen! to your sharing with us, Gary, Blessings, Deborah @ Speaking Truth in Love connected a recent NYT Article series relating aspects of the cv's impacts. The article relates how the bottom has dropped out of the Wedding Industry. As most have not personally been impacted, planned, VERY IMMINENT weddings happen, BUT NO NEW ONES ARE GETTING BOOKED, esp as that would be a month, or more, out. Do you SEE? Within about 30 days, likely much less, there will be NO MORE 'MARRYING AND GIVING IN MARRAIGE'. By some accounts, EVER AGAIN as we have known it. Maranatha!

    1. Oh, the article was speaking globally. The ENTIRE World.

    2. Super astute, Jimboni,
      That means....days of Noah reference completed....we should be leaving any day now!:)

    3. This whole line-up to April 3rd really is stunning (conjunctions are amazing!)

  5. I have read different opinions on this new virus, some think its just a new strain of the flu and others on here think its not and may have been invented in a lab in China.

    When warmer weather comes if this is a flu strain it will diminish and get weaker, if not that changes everything as far getting any control over this.

    1. Don't confuse this Coronavirus Covid-19 with an HxNx influenza virus, an influenza virus is a totally different virus.

  6. 4th election on the way.


  7. Predictions:
    1) Barge will go over Niagara Falls on March 11th. It will be a 7 days warning to load the Ark before the "last trump" sign.
    2) Trump will die of a heart attack on March 18th
    3) The End Times will begin on Pentecost on June 7th, 2020

    After the barge goes over on March 11th make sure watch this entire video.

    If the day were knowable, at this point no one would believe anyone else, and so it makes sense that this is how God would reveal 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 1/4 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/ark that has been stuck on the rocks of the Niagara River for 101 years will go over Niagara Falls on March 11th, 2020. This will be a 7 days warning to load the Ark before the "last trump" sign, when President Trump will die of heart attack on March 18th, 2020. These conclusions are absolutely, and inextricably tied to the following conclusions, and therefore, when these events come to pass on March 11th and March 18th 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 American evangelical Church is a mess, and judgment begins with the Church. 4) The Lord's End Times signs is in fact an interconnected web, in which each sign is dependent on the context of the others signs for their full, true intended meaning. This is why these conclusions are inextricably tied together. As the videos demonstrate, the conclusions are one in the same conclusion. When these events come to pass on March 11th and March 18th 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. Knowing the timing of the "last trump" sign in advance (and therefore, the date the End Times begins) is the biggest development since the discovery of the Revelation 12 Rapture Sign. I believe the watching community should unite around this, and focus on getting this information out about how this was known ahead of time. Make sure you watch this video after the barge/ark goes Niagara. God bless.

    1. This is almost a cut and paste of your last 'prediction', on this site, that the barge goes over on the 29th Feb and that Trump dies on the 11th March. You've just changed the dates. Were there other dates before that? More dates to come that the 'watching community should unite around' when this comes and goes without incident?

      Seriously - just stop it. It's not biblical and it's not helpful. It's just date setting sensationalism making Christians look stupid. God has given more than enough proof through Biblical prophecy and creation for those that have a heart to know. He doesn't need your 'predictions'.

    2. 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.

    3. elgordo

      clearlywrittendotnet double posted that on "Gog and Magog" topic.
      Definitely wants someone to respond!

    4. Thanks Gregg. And I read it on the Pre-Trib Psalm article where Stan F said 'This same person claimed that barge going over the falls last February 17th.' So it is one date after another.
      He needs to stop it... but I doubt he will. So my post is more to alert others.

    5. He’s just trying to gain clicks for his videos. I took one for the team, and it’s all a bunch of junk.


    6. You mean so he can get advertising money for his video's, that's Hilarious.
      HAHAHAHAH!!!!! Im busting up here, that's funny.

    7. Today is March 13th.

  8. It's a very interesting prophetic clue that we now have "Corona" virus making the rounds, and that word on the lips of the world while we have a "Trump" in the office of the presidency. As stated by a few on this site before, the word Corona has an interesting picture to reveal.

    A coronis (Ancient Greek: κορωνίς, korōnís, pl. κορωνίδες, korōnídes) is a textual symbol found in ancient Greek papyri that was used to mark the end of an entire work or of a major section in poetic and prose texts..

    The question can legitimately be asked ...is this coronis a mark that we are nearing the end of the church age? Trump's name of course being indicative of the "Trump" of God sounding at the rapture event. Kinda prophetically fishy if you ask me.

    One could paraphrase these happenings into a clear statement that God may be telling us that "the end of the church age has arrived (koronis) and the "Trump" of God (Trump/Pence) will soon sound. Upon our arrival in Heaven, "crowns" (Corona) will be given to the church while the Antichrist rides forth at the breaking of the sixth seal judgment wearing a "Corona" crown.

    "And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a {crown} was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer" Revelation 6:2).

    A Trump and three crowns.

    1. And I like the nice N' nifty order of events as another side clue within' the clue (if that is what it is). First, Trump/Pence (rapture) became president, then the Corona (koronis) end of the age occurs,believers crowns Corona)in heaven received and the Antichrist wearing his crown (Corona) rides forth.

      The Corona virus could have appeared on the scene before "Trump (rapture), but it didn't. Trump (rapture) appeared first, then the Corona (crown) virus appeared.

      Rapture first and then the appearance of the three crowns. Nice N' Nifty Prophecy Punch

    2. Revelation 3:22 ends the things concerning the churches!

      Revelation 4:1 After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; (Jesus talking)which said, Come up hither(Rapture), and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter. (The churches)

      Daniel's 70th week starts in the sixth chapter. With the white horse rider

      What does Trump/Pence have to do with any of it?

    3. This comment has been removed by the author.

    4. You're likely misunderstanding my comment. I totally agree with you on Revelation 3:2 ending all things to do with the church age. My point about Trump/Pence is that their names are prophetic clues in conjunction with the Corona virus that sort of gives a prophetic clue as to the order of events and the nearness of the hour. As you well know, we all like to notice these little prophetic clues and nuggets that may be Holy Spirit dropped hints.

      Trump/Pence sounds like Trumpet ... as in the Trump of God sounding at the rapture per 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17). The "Trumpet" shall sound as per 1 Corinthians 15:52.

      Corona Virus loaded with prophetic crown clues, all which appear after Trump clues, indicating the sequence of biblical prophetic events.

  9. You're making sense to me Gary! Nothing to criticize here.

  10. https://youtu.be/RpdxTRpHSYQ this is quite an interesting viewpoint on the cv check about 11mins into video...

  11. I think that this virus is also meant to distract the world from what is going on in the Middle-East, a big regional war is about to happen there, triggered by Iran. When a war is raging in the Middle-East, while this virus is causing societies and economies to collapse, the ultimate panic and disaster is complete.

  13. Take a look at these links:




    From this we can conclude:

    1. COVID-19 is an engineered bioweapon and was intentionally released. I suspect the release occurred during the World Military Games in Wuhan, which coincided with "Event 201" on 10/18/2019. The CDC may have been involved, which explains their subsequent behavior.
    2. This was ALWAYS the plan.
    3. Mass quarantines will be next. Based on current numbers, we will be Italy in about 11 days or so. Time will tell.
    4. Next comes "combined disasters". I suspect economic collapse, ongoing weather warfare events, and possibly a major earthquake.
    5. The rapture will follow shortly.

    1. Combined distastes like collapsing banks and insurance companies due to the ongoing stock market crashes.

  14. Maybe im just cynical because ive been disappointed before (like around the time of 9/23/2017) but I have a hunch that this CV situation is going to do some harm but will blow over.

    I am not one that thinks the Rapture can happen at any time. The next likely time is Pentecost or this Fall-imo.

    Theres something else to be concerned with. We have three old men running for President flying around the country shaking hands. This virus could take them out, especially Sanders.

    1. Sometime last August (2019) I had a dream where I was on an upper floor of an outdoor arena of some sort. Kind of like the upper seating deck of a stadium.

      In the dream, I kept saying 'Pentecost! Pentecost!' poignantly and multiple times over.

      Upon researching further, it seems there is a strong case for the rapture to occur during Pentecost. (Not dogmatic, just saying strong candidate)

      1. Church began on Pentecost. Reasonable to say it will end on Pentecost. Eg) gospel began from Jerusalem, will end on Jerusalem.

      2. Enoch was supposedly born on Pentecost, and was raptured on Pentecost.

      3. Song of songs eludes to a spring time rapture.

    2. Pentecost is usually my top choice. Any of these would be perfect in my mind:

      Feast of Trumpets
      Yom Kippur
      Shemini Atzeret
      Tu b'Av
      Ascension Day

  15. Gary I'm in agreement with you on the Gospel. It is grace alone, by faith alone, in Christ alone. Salvation is a gift and given to those that do the will of the Father. Matthew 7:21, and that is to believe in Christ John 6:40. Religion doesn't get you there, your good works don't get you there, Christ is the only way John 6:14. The Gospel is simple enough for a child, but man is always twisting it. We are seeing the signs converging. Civil unrest, troubled financial markets, earthquakes,volcanoes, crazy weather, Israel getting cut up by Trump's peace plan. No government in Israel and a fourth round of elections.Iran and Russia seeing economic hardship. Locusts and virus, pestilence? The World Health Organization calling for society to go cashless to protect against Covid-19. To me that all the craziness started after the U.S. eclipse, then the Rev12 sign. I'm ready to go home, I'm tired of my sin seeking flesh. We are at the end of the race and we need to finish well. It's time to catch our second wind and fly.

  16. Ascension day is Rapture day.
    Paul taught the Colossians, the Feasts of the Jews are a shadow of things to come for the Church (Body of Christ).

  17. I'm confused because of how things are supposed to be as in the days of Noah:
    Matthew 24:37-39 King James Version (KJV)
    37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

    38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,

    39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
    Yet things seem chaotic now...people putting off their marriages I read in someones post above, etc.

    1. Marriage is still happening around the world. Some are postponing because they can't get garments from China. Their is some fear from the virus, but people aren't running to the ark. Look around at the unsaved they are buying up toilet paper and hand sanitizer to save themselves. People are carrying along like normal, going to work,and trying to pay their bills. I think people know something is up but don't want to submit to the truth that God is in control, it will be in His timing not our. But we can know the season and it's apon us. It rains in the spring, that my take anyway.

    2. We all have this instant information technology at our fingertips.
      If you look on the back of a Lysol spray disinfectant you will see two versions of the Carnivorous, both are neutralized in 10 sec. The ones down below are far worse.
      Purell's stock is sky rocketing!!

      The days of Noah isn't going to change cause of this!

      Put it in perspective!

    3. https://www.vox.com/2020/3/9/21171373/italy-coronavirus-quarantine-lombardy-conte
      All public gatherings, including weddings and funerals, are also banned, and sport events are suspended..

      The new rules include a ban on public gatherings, including funerals as well as weddings and other civil or religious ceremonies.

  18. New section above called "Another Sign in the Heavens?"

    Also, according to the WHO, CV is now a pandemic: https://www.theverge.com/2020/3/11/21156325/coronavirus-pandemic-who-declares-covid-19-outbreak-global-h1n1

    1. This really brings a new meaning to the term, "MARCH MADNESS!"

  19. Gary, thanks for this great article. I have a question. You say, "As we soon ascend into the heavenly realms, being hidden away in a glorious, protective abode, the spiritual dragon, that ancient serpent called" the Devil "and" Satan "will strike our heel, but we shall crush his head . " I just don't see how this can be done with the rapture. How do you mean this?

    1. Hey Arno, that's a good question. I was attempting to connect the rapture with Coronavirus or perhaps something similar. That is to say, the Church will be under threat and may experience a short period of tribulation until God blows the trumpet. A heel wound is minor, but a head wound is fatal. We might get a scratch, but God will deliver His people.

    2. Clear explanation. Thank you.

      Our blessed hope.

      In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

  20. Random Ramblings, I think not Gary, logical, and easy to follow, painting a clear picture of the any day now event that we are all waiting for. Thanks Brother. 🚫 🍇

  21. Prospectively, Satin is allowed to deceive by any means possible.
    I know the Enemy and there ways. And the one's that are going to be here after we are gone they will remember what you said, to encourage them. So just keep fighting the spiritual warfare of faith for them. The Holy Spirit will still be here working.

    Im reminded of Romans 14:7-9.

  22. Another great article, and the “Another Sign in the Heavens” addition is very powerful.


  23. Very grateful for your diligence in searching - it is all coming together for sure, and we WILL know the day as well as the hour as it draws nearer through watchmen like you. God bless

  24. Could it be that this coronavirus COVID-19 is something like the roaring lion from 1 Peter 5:6-10 looking for someone to devour. Because he knows he has a little time and now as a last (?) attempt tries to kill the generation that Jesus predicted in Matthew 24:34 “Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened?” After all it is mainly the elders from around 1948 that is killed by it….

  25. "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me because the Lord has annointed me to preach good tidings to the meek; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound.

    To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn.

    In Luke 4:16-21 the Word says that Jesus was handed the scroll of Isaiah in the temple and began to read. He quoted it until he got to where it says "To preach the acceptable year of the Lord" and then he stopped reading. He didn't finish the rest of it. Why not?

    The reason is that he would have been in error if he had continued to read and then said in verse 21 "This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears".

    The Old Testament prophets knew about the suffering and the glory of the Lord but the 2000 yr. old gap in between they were not aware of as explained in Romans 16:25 and 1 cor.2:7.

    The comma in Isaiah 61:2 is a 2000 yr. old comma which represents us.

    For that reason any attempt to decipher the time of the Rapture using astronomical configurations is questionable at best. For that reason I personally am not getting my hopes up for an April 3rd. Rapture.

    Although I do believe its coming soon.

    1. Wise words. I also believe we can't know with certainty the day or hour. However I believe the watching Church may become aware of the day on some level as we draw near and the situation continues to develop.

    2. Mainer

      Why, an April 3rd. Rapture?

    3. Hi Gregg,

      Get out your astronomy software and you will find,

      1. Venus in the Pleiades
      2. Mars/Saturn conjunction joined by Jupiter in Sagittarius
      3. Moon in the Beehive Cluster
      4. Mercury/Neptune conjunction in Aquarius
      5. Sun in Pisces
      6. Uranus in Aries

      Sunset on April 3rd this year begins 10 Nisan by the civil calendar or M1D10 by the ecclesiastic calendar. This day Israel is commanded to pick a lamb for each household and keep it for the Passover. M1D10 is the day of the Jordan River Crossing and this year the evening of Friday, April 3 begins the Great Sabbath (Shabbat HaGadol).

      Shabbat HaGadol is a two-part Sabbath that bookends with Shabbat Shuba (Sabbath of Return); the Sabbath between Yom Teruah (Day of Shouting/Feast of Trumpets) and Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement).

      There's only just a little bit of symbolism in Friday/Saturday (4/3-4/4) not the least of which is Christ telling us that He is the bright morning star. Venus is known as the bright morning star and Jesus tells us, "I am the root and the descendant of David, the bright morning star." (Revelation 22:16 ESV)

      The Lord continues,

      1 "To the angel of the church
      in Ephesus write:

      "The words of him who holds the
      seven stars in his right hand,
      who walks among the seven golden

      (Revelation 2:1 ESV)

      The star cluster we call the Pleiades is recognized by seven bright stars commonly known as the "Seven Sisters" thus Venus can be understood as holding the seven stars on 4/3-4/4 this year.

      "Why, an April 3rd. Rapture?"

      For the dates, stellar symbols and narrative many consider Friday, April 3rd and Saturday, April 4th to be high-watch days for the RR. If this were true then it would be 167-days to Feast of Trumpets where a most excellent fit is found for the coming of the two-witnesses and the time of troubles to come.

      Why 167-days? 167-days may have a correlation to the beginning of the Maccabean Revolt against the Seleucid Empire in 167-BC -- another time that points us toward Christ via Hanukkah.

      It's a lot of potential watermarks.

      But that's just one permutation and I by no means look for or know all of them.

      I hope that helps...


  26. My devotional the other day (on Purim actually) was entitled "Designed to Live in the Last Days"
    I wanted to share the prayer written in it...

    "Lord, you designed me to live in the last days according to your great plan. Because You are in charge of my life, I know it's no mistake that I am alive in this generation. Since these days are filled with greater risk than any other generation has ever known, I need faith to face these times. I need wisdom to minister to others who are wounded or hurt. So today I ask you to help me embrace this time as a part of my destiny and to become strong in faith so I can reach out to those who are near me and who need spiritual assistance. Help me to recognize their need and to know exactly how I should respond to help them. I pray this in Jesus's name Amen!"

    I thought that was so timely. Not just because of what's going on around us. But because I read it on Purim. Esther was born for such a time to save her people. And, friends, we were born for such a time as this. God is a God of design and purpose. We are here right now for a reason. God chose us for this generation. Our eyes are open to see clearly for a reason. Maybe it's to be witnesses and lights to those around us panicking in the darkness.

    Honestly, I have moments of panic too. My elderly dad flies every weekend to share the gospel. I have to trust God. I grew up with the truth of Jesus's return part of my faith. And His return is a promise. But I asked myself yesterday, if He tarries, if He doesn't return in my lifetime, if I must suffer for Him and face adversity, will I still trust and follow Him? My answer was Yes! I will. Because I know He will never leave my side. I am His. Although I do believe all the signs and scripture, and prophecies point to the gathering of His church and return very soon. We're children of the light. We are His Bride. And I think we can feel it in our hearts that He's coming soon.

    I just wanted to share that.

    "When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. Since you are precious and honored in my sight, and because I love you. / Do not be afraid, for I am with you. /You are my witnesses and my servants whom I have chosen, so that you may know and believe me and understand that I am He. Before me no god was formed, nor will there be one after me. I am the Lord , and apart from me there is no savior. You are my witnesses that I am God."
    Isaiah 43

    1. I love that sweet prayer. Thank you for sharing Lilie.

    2. thank you Lillie! Very comforting!

    3. You're welcome! We could all use a little comfort right now I think.

  27. I absolutely loved this!!! Also I find it interesting that Sagittarius was standing straight up in the first picture, but in the other pics he is pointing his arrow more downward almost like pointing at earth! I hope and pray Christ’s return is soon and very soon!!!

  28. I was thinking today this convid is the start of the sudden destruction... I mean they were just proclaiming peace and safety when everything was still relatively normal goings on. I mean the word cleary states WHILE they are saying p&s and there is war looming in middle east...

    1. You may not be far from the truth.

    2. This coronavirus is triggering many end time events subsequently: collapsing financial markets, collapsing societies, war in the Middle-East, arrival of the antichrist, Great Tribulation and finally the Second Advent of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

  29. Wow. Just wow. Thank you for being sensitive to the Holy Spirit. We appreciate each and every word.

  30. At https://www.zerohedge.com and http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/ you can follow the current situation of the collapsing financial markets.

  31. Dow -2352. 10%.

    Largest single day crash (relative) since 1987.

    4th largest in history.

    Largest point drop in history.

    Markets now down over 28% since last month.

    NHL, MLB, NBA, NCAA, MLS shutting down.

    Schools shutting down.

    Whole countries shutting down.

    Catholic churches in Italy closing until next month.

    1. Don't forget renewed attacks on US/UK forces in Iraq by Iranian proxies and new election date in Israel of Tuesday, September 8, 2020.

      Grocery stores are starting to take a hit with bare shelves in select aisles. It is surreal.

      We may take to a televised sermon and meeting first century style in homes if public gatherings become prohibited.

    2. In Europe many public gatherings and church services are already prohibited.

  32. Revelation 22:20 King James Version (KJV)
    20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

  33. Thank you, Gary, i so enjoy reading the articles you write. This one has encouraged me to the point of tears. My wife and i are old and about worn out. i so reach and yearn to meet our Lord Jesus, in the air! God bless you richly

  34. I had a pretty vivid rapture-esque dream this morning that has left me in peace pretty much all day. However near or far off it is, we are safe in His hands.

  35. 2020 Labor Pains

    One month ago today:
    People were "buying & selling." The DJIA was 8000 points higher.
    Toxic political campaigns were raging.
    People were traveling to & fro.
    US motto is : It's the economy, stupid."

    Apparently God said, "enough."

    January 22, first US Covid 19 case in Washington State
    January 28, Trump trumpets his Israel Deal in Washington DC
    February 5, Impeachment fiasco ended

  36. Who feels Jesus' closeness like never before?! My friends, are your ears as perked as mine? I can only imagine...

    Glory to God in the highest! Hosanna Hosanna! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord. He is Holy and true, above all, the maker of the heavens and the earth. Hallelujah our king is coming! Amen.

  37. My mom lives in Georgia. She called me this evening and said everything is shutting down. Schools are cancelled. Store shelves are empty. She said she has never seen anything like it in her life. It is so surreal. It's not quite like that where I live yet, but I imagine it's coming. Strangely, I have a peace. Either God will protect us and take care of His own through this or this is it. We're going to hear that trumpet blast soon! I pray you all are ready ( I know you are). And in the mean time I hope you have the essentials to survive the hysteria.

    1. In our country are empty shelves, we have not found eggs, meat, milk, toilet paper, etc., we have only 64 corona cases confirmed, schools closed ..etc
      I have not seen such a thing in my life...


  38. Hi everyone, I think we may know when the Rapture is about to happen. Remember in Genesis 7:4, God told Noah he would send the rain in 7 days. Noah knew when destruction was to begin and it was time to enter the ark and shut the door!

    1. Rhonda/Family,
      Gary, thanks for another wonderful post, now you get to see what rambling on really looks like.

      Hopefully this comes out making sense. This talk about the days of Noah, have been at the forefront of my thinking for the last several days. Mat 24:37-39  But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 

      Some are saying that things have already changed, and normal day to day living isn't as it has always been. Part of me thinks that most things are continuing on as normal. Most people are still going to work, going shopping, entertaining themselves with the TV/Internet etc. Is there panic and fear? Yes of course there is. But, I see people at work planning their summer vacations, shopping on line, just carrying on with their everyday lives. So although there is panic and fear going on, most people are trying to ignore it and just continue on like nothing is going on.

      Back to my point of Mathew 24: 37-39. the second part of verse says "until the day Noe entered the ark".
      I live in Western Washington, close to the epicenter here in the US. I am starting to see the writing on the wall, I think soon we will be in complete lock down at least across the western part of the state. I can also see this happening across the country until we as a nation have been each been put into our own private "ark". Genesis 7:4 says that everything was normal until Noah entered the ark. There was a 7 day delay (as Rhonda pointed out) between the time Noah entered the ark, and the flood came.

      Now what would happen if we were all locked into our ark (home). Let's imagine for a moment that the government (world wide) says the only way we are going to contain this is to lock everyone (or most everyone) into their homes for the next 3 weeks. 7 days later the flood comes, and the born again believers are are taken home to the Father's house (Amen). Two weeks after that when the government gives the all clear, there are going to be some houses left empty, where people just "disappeared". No one knows where they went or how long that they have been gone. Neighbors may think that we headed for the hills. But one thing the government will not have to do is make up some strange about aliens or some other reason why millions of people across the world are suddenly missing. The government can simply write it off as they left town, went to be with relatives before the lock down took effect, and just decided not to return. I think you get the idea.

      Finally brethren, this is not some vision I have been given or in any way me trying to say that I even believe it will happen, but for sure it is something I have been pondering. What got me thinking about it, was other post here, and over at Rev12daily. About a year ago I shared my testimony with Brad via email. I told him maybe someday I would share it with everyone else over there. I'm may finally do that this weekend.

      Whatever happens it the Lords will that matters most. Our job is to just keep trusting in him, and doing the work he has put us here to do. May God Bless you all, and your family. Looking up always. Chris

    2. You may be onto something there Chris. Building on your thoughts...the impact of the RR happening during a global lock-down would be less than no lock-down yet still obvious that something was happening.

      If the RR were to happen on the weekend of 4/3-4/4 (see my comments above) that would mean a *global* (meaning widespread) lock-down should occur on the weekend of 3/27-3/28 if to follow the Noah 7-days model.

    3. Pastor Rich, yes, Yes, YES!!!

      Also, as I said yesterday, the writing is on the wall. Today Trump calls declares a national emergency, and schools are closed across Washington state. And I haven't looked it up yet, but it sounds like schools in a lot of states are being closed down. 10 Nisan would be fine by me. But I know you are about the Lords business until he comes no matter when. I just keep praying the Lord will keep opening doors for me to reach into and push people a little closer to our Lord and Savior.

    4. Oh My just watched Pauls new video on YT @ revelation12dotcom, talk about confirmation of my thinking. Not sure if anyone else posted the link, so here it is. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kxsqcNBPfks

    5. 4/4/2020

      The Lord our God is the "first and the last, beginning and the end" -- "the Alpha and the Omega." (Revelation 22:13) With that in mind turn your Bible to (Genesis 4:4) and (Revelation 4:4)...

      What do we find?


      Now, open your KJV Bible to (Revelation 4:4).

      What do we find?

      4 And round about the throne were
      four and twenty seats: and upon the
      seats I saw four and twenty elders,
      clothed in white rainment; and they
      had on their heads crowns of gold.

      (Revelation 4:4 KJV)

      Did you notice? Four and twenty? 4 and 20 twice? 4/4/2020?

      A tip of the hat to Paul Dawson here for airing what the Spirit says to the churches. His trigger pointed me to these passages and I am stunned!

      The prophet Isaiah continues,

      20 Come, my people enter your
      chambers, and shut your doors
      behind you; hide yourselves
      for a little while until the
      fury has passed by,

      21 For behold, the LORD is
      coming out from his place to
      punish the inhabitants of
      the earth for their iniquity,
      and the earth will disclose
      the blood shed on it, and
      will no more cover its slain.

      (Isaiah 26:20-21 ESV)

      The first of the slain who's blood was shed on the face of the earth is none other than Abel. For what was his blood spilled? What was his offering before the LORD?

      4 and Abel also brought of the
      firstborn of his flock and of
      their fat portions. And the
      LORD had regard for Abel and
      his offering,

      (Genesis 4:4 ESV)

      On M1D10, 10 Nisan, we are told,

      3 Tell all the congregation of
      Israel that on the tenth day of
      this month every man shall take
      a lamb according to their fathers'
      houses, a lamb for a household.

      (Exodus 12:3 ESV)

      Hmmm, that's an awful lot of dots connecting -- and awful lot of watermarks added to those I've already posted here.

      I'll tell you this, I will NEVER forget (Genesis 4:4), (Exodus 12:3), (Isaiah 26:20-21) or (Revelation 4:4) again!

      The fact that I am up from a nap last night at this hour on a Sunday? Surreal.

      Thank God we are living in a digital age.



    6. 4/4/2020 doens't mean that the Rapture might occur on that day, but it can also mark the beginning of a war in the Middle-East and/or the total financial collapse.

    7. Moin,

      You are correct. It doesn't mean that the RR will occur on that day -- it certainly *may* mark a major birth pain (contraction). We should consider all the possibilities and be prepared for what comes.

      With that said...


      I realized that the year 2020 may be rendered as "two-score" or two (2) twenty-year periods. Two-score equals 40-years.

      Now that is interesting.

  39. Great article, not as random as you might have thought. My church in Seattle is legally not allowed to gather anymore. Yet Soon we may all gather to Christ! Maranatha!

    1. Derek,
      Thanks, we are outside of the 3 counties that are affected (at least for now). We are a smaller church, so hopefully we can continue on as normal, until he comes. Heb_10:25. Maranatha!

  40. Im concerned about another huge letdown not just for myself ever since the Rev.12 sign which is now 2 1/2 yrs. in the rear view. The folks here have set a potential new date for the Rapture. I certainly hope their right but im not holding my breath. How many of you were disappointed on 9/24/2017? I know I was.

    1. Take heart!

      Do you have any children Mainer/All?

      As a father of three, on earth and perhaps five in heaven, I can tell you there are times when contractions get farther apart or stop altogether. There are times in the delivery room that you wait and wait and wait. More contractions...more waiting. The all of a sudden, BOOM!!! Their head begins to appear. Not there yet, still more contractions but now pushing with every contraction.

      Birth is a process.

      We should be eyes on Christ as was Peter's when he stepped out of the boat and walked on the waters with Jesus. We in no way should have eyes on ourselves.

      We will surely sink!

      This is by no means a rebuke but an encouragement. Time is getting short! We may barely have time to invite more to the ark.

      Remember the fine details of the birthing process. It's a process that always ends in a delivery. Imagine Christ's longing to see us with Him?! Can you imagine it? Just imagine His longing to be with you?!!

      Our Father is waiting out His blessed news. Soon we will burst forth. Soon we shall all be like Him and with Him...swaddled in light and wrapped in His Love forever in glory! Amen!

      Surely, we are sooner to that hope than later.

      Take heart!!

  41. This comment has been removed by the author.

  42. Mainer and all, I think the difference between the Rev12 sign and now is God has the attention of the whole world. I think the 7 day warning is soon. The destruction of Damascus maybe?

  43. Everyone On here is excited and jumping for joy about Christ's return but honestly I'm not. Says alot about me as a Christian I guess. I'm scared and when I say scared I mean terrified. Everything happening around the globe has my anxiety peaked and i can't wrap my head around it. I have a babygirl that my husband and I prayed and prayed for. Our miracle and she truly is she has overcome So much in her short 10 months of life. An extended 93 day NICU stay and has been in and out of the hospital since. Other than that she is healthy. What I'm about to say may make me sound selfish but I need to say what is hurting my heart. My husband and i have waited so long over almost 7 years for this baby. We suffered through many miscarriages and a babygirl passing away 6 years ago in May. I want more time. I want to enjoy this baby that we prayed so long for. The way things have been lately I'm scared Christ will tell me and my husband "depart from me" and my babygirl will be in heaven and that will devastate me that I can't join my babies in paradise. I suffer from clinical anxiety (among other things) and for the past couple of days my anxiety has peaked I'm shaking and I have self quarantined myself along with my baby (as battles lung disease) but I'm scared to leave my house. I have shut off news apps on my phone and my social media because I can't take any more CV talk. Than I come on this site and everyone on here is shouting rapture! and "days of Noah" maybe I don't understand scripture maybe I'm just scared maybe I'm just confused about all of this. I know God doesn't give us a spirit of fear but of sound mind. I pray for peace beyond all understanding with this something I haven't been able to accomplish. The reality is I'm terrified of being left behind withno chance of making it up to heaven. I pray this virus blows over and warm weather comes. I've just been on edge the past couple of days and I feel something isn't right but I chalk it up to my anxiety. Maybe I need to stop reading sites like this and the news. I don't know but what I do know is that I may be in the minority that doesn't want the rapture just yet, that doesn't rejoice when everything is going wrong around the globe. I pray to God for more time but it's his will not ours. It seems everyone on here feels any minute any moment we're gone and have set a new date. Some say 7 days others April 3rd I don't know what to think but what I do know is ultimately like I said I'm scared.

    1. Unknown, Just to let you know that I'm in the camp of being very excited for the soon return of our Lord and Savior, but I'm still very anxious about everything that is going on in the world right now. I think what you are experiencing is somewhat normal. This is a scary thing that is going on, but the Lord is still on the throne. He is sovereign in all things, ALL THINGS. My son is sixteen and he has a close relationship with the Lord. He is looking forward to his return, but at the same time he wants to live and experience life. He feels pulled in teo different directions. I just want you to know you are not alone. I Also want to encourage you that if you are worried about not going to heaven or being raptured with you daughter, that is a good sign that indeed you are on the right path. I'm sure you already know Rom: 10:13 "whosoever calls on the Lord shall be saved". If you have done this and you believe that is true then be at peace sisters. I've also heard so many times that there is know one that does or that will be raptured that will be disappointed. That is an emotion on this side of eternity. The physical is all we really know so it's what we think is best, but one day we will be in heaven and this life will be what feels like what was not as real. All the best is yet to come. The Lord loves you and your family. Not only that but he likes you. He really likes you. We can love someone out of obligation but not really like then. Not so with our Lord. The word "friend" was invented by our God. The first time in any writings is in scripture when then Lord called Abraham a "friend of God". You are too! Read Psalm 91 it has helped me when I get nervous about the virus. Hope this helps.

    2. Christians pray: THY KINGDOM COME. The last word of Jesus in Rev is to pray"EVEN SO COME LORD JESUS." Jesus is LOVE. Perfect LOVE casteth out FEAR. Yet you want more time? Eternity in His Kingdom IS FOREVER! His timing is perfect. The spirit of Lot's wife is to be looking back & longing for time in the sin filled world. She paid a dear price for lack of faith.

    3. My dearest sister, Unknown yet KNOWN TO GOD,

      I echo our sister Rhonda.

      Our eldest son was born to the NICU 26-years ago. Our youngest are middle school aged. In between we have five or six miscarriages -- children in the blessed care of the LORD awaiting our arrival. They await our birth as it were!

      My wife and I would have more children if it were possible. We would even hope to be taken home with child just to have one more...for all eternity awaits to spend with them! Nothing will ever separate us. Nothing!

      My wife suffers from the same as you. It is hard. No matter the medicine she is prescribed the only thing that takes away that much fear is prayer and the word. The ministering of another to those who are in need. Not us ministering to ourselves but the voice of another reading the Word and praying peace into our body, mind and soul...sharing the moment as a gathering of saints. The laying of loving hands heals so much! We cannot do this on our own -- we need one another for this. We need the Lord and His Holy Spirit.

      I will lift you in prayer each day for your faith, hope and encouragement. I pray LOVE comes down and as it does you become aware of His presence. That in the moment, you open the doors to your fear(s) and allow His Holy Spirit to flood that space that void; the place that pushes with so much pressure yet is without substance -- may the overwhelming Love and Light of the LORD GOD Almighty crash-in and over take your fears washing them away.

      May you be blessed with calm in solitude that is wholly to the LORD. May we all we blessed to have more time with HIM and less time with our fear. Gather the moments and fill them to the brim that He is our all-in-all and our fear and uncertainty are put to death.

      Death and Hades will see the fire of the pit. You were not made for such an abode. We were made to be swaddled in Light and wrapped in His Love forever and ever in glory!

      So we pray,




      OF US.


      (MATTHEW 6.9-13 GREEK NT)

      Jesus continues that as we forgive others so shall we be forgiven. That may also be read, as we LOVE others so shall we be LOVED. That is what Jesus called the Greatest Commandment and He said it amounted to "All the law and the prophets". (That means it's the most important thing!)


      I hear so much love in your heart. Only God could put that there. Fear not my sister, God our Father Loves you with an unquenchable fire that cannot be put-out.

      In my times of trial I have imagined my fears being physically nailed to the cross. Imagined the hammer striking nails buried deep in my distress. Cast them to the Lord with an open hand not holding tightly to them but with an open palm that He make take them in His nail scared hands.

      See it, feel it and release it all to Him as often as you need. Freely without reservation. He took all pain that you may live in freedom. Allow Him to take yours today, tomorrow and beyond as often as you need.

      Partake of the moment to immerse yourself with Him. You and your beautiful child, pray together and teach your daughter the Way. Make precious and Holy this time you share with your family.

      This is what we do. This is the cross we bear too. I will pray for you each day that you be filled to overflowing with the Spirit of the living GOD.

      He is always faithful. He never fails!

      Look to Him and know the purpose of His coming.

      (Isaiah 57)

      He has come for the likes of you. He has come for the likes of me. He has come for all of us who are of a humble spirit and are contrite of heart!

      May the grace and peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be upon you and with you and yours, always. Forever and ever, amen.

      With love,

      Pastor Rich

    4. Don't think of the rapture as separation from your child - as long as you trust that Jesus death fulfilled God's requirements, then you will join your baby int Rapture. And I'm of the opinion that babies will be raised to adults by their believing parents in Heaven (rather than have them poof into adults). You would get to raise your daughter in the most beautiful, safe environment ever! Where there's no danger of sickness or evil approaching your child. Where you can teach her truth and watch her grow in joy! There's nothing to fear, just an event that is full of Hope! Something to truly long for. I know I would rather raise my preschoolers in such circumstances, if given the choice.

    5. IMO - parents of young children today are LUCKY.
      (The parents, perhaps not so much.
      Unless they are believers.)
      ALL children under the age of accountability will go in the Rapture - hurray!
      All of them, including the unborn.
      Doesn't matter if their parents are believers or not - they will all be raptured.
      The sick children will be made well.
      No more childhood diseases; not even a sniffle!
      Can you imagine the type of childhood they'll have in heaven?!?
      * * * * *
      And you parents of young children - you don't have to worry (WORRY) about your children being saved!
      Worry about them being caught up in the world and hoping and praying that they'll outgrow it before it's too late.
      Worry that even though they may have been raised in the Church and accepted the Lord when they were younger, that God does not seem to be a part of their lives these days.
      Oh, they’re “good” kids – not out partying and drinking or addicted to drugs.
      They have jobs and on the way to becoming successful by worldly standards.
      But, that’s just it – they’re following after the world’s ways and not necessarily Gods.
      And, if they do go to church, it’s more of a social thing with lots of youth and young adult activities, but no real talk about living for God and the soon coming Rapture of the Church (because it’s too controversial?!?).
      And, hey, everyone is welcome – you know what I mean!
      Because even though God said something is a sin, the church doesn’t judge!
      (Unless it’s your mother for judging us!!!)
      Worry that they've become "scoffers" who roll their eyes and snicker every time you relate world events to the soon coming Rapture of the Church.
      Worry that knowing that given enough time, prayers (yours), and experience, that they'll come around, but that because time is SHORT, that their generation will not have that luxury of time (and experience) as perhaps so many of us had.
      * * * * *
      Parents of young children today are LUCKY.
      You know where your children will spend their eternity.
      * * * * *
      Losing a child to a miscarriage is a horrible, tragic experience.
      Losing a child to illness or an accident is even more so tragic a loss.
      Every day, for the remainder of your life you find yourself thinking that (name of child) would be ___ years old today. He’d be going off to college come fall! Getting married! I might be a grandmother by now!
      But, without negating that loss in any way, in a sense you are lucky.
      You’ve lost your child for a time.
      But not for forever.
      You will have your child for eternity and that’s a VERY LONG time.
      * * * * *
      Christian parents of unsaved older children really have only one recourse -
      to pray and keep on praying for the salvation of our children.
      I wrote previously that I try not to worry.
      (God’s Got This!)
      I worry about 3 things, or 1 thing – the salvation of my 3 children.
      If I did NOT worry about it, I would NOT pray about it because it would be a non-issue.
      Sometimes I think they are, or one is, maybe two, and other times not…
      These are people I’ve watched grow from the time they were born – I know them!
      Yet, how can I NOT know this???
      The most IMPORTANT Thing.
      I’m aware of “not seeing the forest for the trees”!
      * * * * *
      I also wrote that I know God cares about what I care about.
      I truly care about 3 things in this world – my 3 children and their salvation.
      I remind myself that they were His first
      and that God wants everyone to be saved!

      Unfortunately, it’s not a choice I get to make.
      It’s theirs.
      I’m praying they make the right one.
      * * * * *
      Yes, I got to watch my children grow up – so far.
      But, from my perspective, losing a child for a time,
      Is infinitely preferable to losing them to eternity.

    6. Sweet sister, oh how I understand. After 17 years of marriage and infertility, I am pregnant with a miracle baby I found out about on my 40th birthday. He is due in July, much later than the "high watch" days we hear about during spring (Purim / Passover). This means that he may never even be born this side of eternity. What comforts me is knowing that God is so merciful and His plans are perfect. You and I were born for such a time as this, and so is your sweet little girl. God is a good Father. He knows the exact day and moment that our Savior will descend from heaven with a shout, and in His infinite wisdom chose NOW for you to have a little girl and me to be expecting a miracle son. I honestly don't know if I'll ever hold my newborn in my arms. But I know without a doubt that God is a good Father and He loves this little baby even more than I could even imagine. And I trust Him completely because I know that everything He does is good. I pray that you will draw near to Him with these fears and let Him comfort you and show you how much He loves you and cares about you, your baby, and your heart during this. I pray that this will be used to strengthen your faith. Be honest with Him and tell Him how you are feeling, what you are afraid of and just pour your heart out to Him. He will not reject you or condemn you for your fears or how you feel. Let Him surprise you with peace and comfort as He helps you grow in trust. Trust His love and His goodness and His all-knowing. Trust that He loves and cares about your sweet little girl and has a beautiful plan for her life, no matter what the future holds. Cherish every moment with her and draw near to your heavenly Father. I pray you come to know His goodness and love.

  44. Dear Sister (not unknown to God), do not beat yourself up for being scared! I am scared too! I have asthma and the thought of getting this virus and not being able to breathe is terrifying. We are only human and God knows that! He knows how weak we are! Remember, when we are weak, He is strong!!!! Sing to your baby and yourself the song “I am Jesus’ Little Lamb!” God knows your heart and that you want to stay with your baby. Put your trust in Jesus and whatever happens you will be with your babies!!

    I am Jesus Little Lamb
    Ever glad at heart I am
    For my Shepherd gently guided me
    Knows my name and we’ll provides me
    Loves me everyday the same
    Even calls me by my name

    Please look up rest of lyrics- they are beautiful and comforting. All we need is a childlike faith in Jesus. All who call on the name of the Lord will be saved❤️.

  45. This is for Unknown:

    The Rapture of the Church is our blessed hope as Christians. Why do you think that your beloved baby will be taken from you at the Rapture?

    If you have confessed Jesus as Lord- Romans 10:9,10 you are going home too.

    The Rapture is nothing to be afraid of, just imagine Jesus holding him/her in his loving arms when you get there.

  46. Unknown,

    First I love what Rhonda said: not unknown to God! That is the truth!

    Yes I am excited. AND I am scared. I have a 9 year old, a 6 year old, and 4 year old . I feel sad that they might miss out on something. And then I have moments of terror to think of what the future might hold for them if Jesus tarries. And yet I trust Him and know he will walk with them either here in chaos or in eternity. They belong to Him.

    I know as Christians we must say we trust God through it all. And I believe we do. But the truth is that we're scared at times, too. At least I am. And probably all of us. A little at least. And I think that's okay. Peter was scared of the waves. He was scared after Jesus was arrested. But Jesus saw his heart and understood him and loved him and still used him mightily.

    I don't know you , but I feel love for you . You're a sister going through the same thing as me. Hang in there.

  47. All thank you for your responses but to address someone who asked why am I so afraid my daughter would be raptured and not me because I'm not exactly walking right with the Lord. I know the scripture "we all fall short" but my husband and I used to be on fire now we've just become complacent with one foot in the world and one foot in church. After bringing our daughter home and the entire ordeal that was her birth I was thankful to God for her life and the miracle that she is and I thought life is good. Than things started happening globally and I was like uh oh....the more my baby grew the more I didn't want anything to happen. I am definitely not like Lots wife I don't want to turn back but I don't want this to happen yet either. I dont understand this whole getting on the ark reference you all keep speaking of or 7 day warning or something like that. What happens to those who are left behind they can't ever see heaven? I always thought Jesus would come when the Antichrist would appear on the scene but this site is stating otherwise you believe it's all done before. My nerves are shot I can't stop shaking, I can't sleep or eat. I want all this CV talk and quarantine, mass hysteria to die down. To the person above that asked me how could I want more time because I just do! I have family and friends that need Jesus.

    1. Jesus is the Ark.

      As a pastor I hope to plant seeds. Some will bear fruit in the church age, some in the next. I pray for the unborn church, the body that will rise as those we call Tribulation Saints. Even they will rise to be accepted by the Lord.

      I too want more time...more time to reach the lost. That includes family members. All I can do is trust and fix my eyes on faith, hope and love.

      Love being the greatest of these. (1 Corinthians 13:13 ESV)

  48. This was a devotional I found some time ago and it has helped me tremendously! I keep it printed and with me.

    Don’t worry about anything, but in everything, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses every thought, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
    Philippians 4:6-7 HCSB

    Worry is all about your mind . . . it's mental.
    Anxiety is all about your heart . . . it's physical.

    They are incredibly exhausting. Fortunately for us, Paul provides a remedy for both.

    In every situation, big or small, easy or hard, high pressure or low pressure, competitive or conversational, Paul is asking us to do four things:

    Pray. Thank. Ask. Receive.

    Praying opens a door to our hearts—a door that hides the worry, the nervousness, the anxiety, the what-ifs, the worst-case scenarios, and, sometimes, the nightmares. This is the toughest part because we’d often prefer to keep this special door shut and locked.

    Thanking our heavenly Father for all we do have through prayer begins the excavation of removing anxieties, worries, and lies from our hearts and begins replacing them with truth, grace, and love.

    Ask God. Yes . . . ask him! Be vague, be clear, but ask him for whatever you think you need or want. Just by asking, you’re shifting responsibility from providing a you-sized solution to the God of the universe to providing a God-sized solution.

    Receive. You won't understand it. You won't be able to explain it. And you probably won't be able to put it into words. But when you pray with thanksgiving and ask the God of the universe to give you answers, he’ll give you peace—peace that guards your heart with warmth, love, and purpose. It is truly indescribable. Receive it.

    1. When one is anxious, they are living in the future.

      He Who Orchestrates The Future With One Hand, Holds You Safely In The Other, Knows The Plans He Has For You, Plans To Prosper You And Give You Hope.

      When one finds Guilt and Shame as their companions, they are living in the past.

      That is a prison with doors flung wide and never a need to remain inside. "It Is Finished", He says, With Arms Spread Wide. For Freedom, you are now freed; come, now with me, abide.

      When one arrives at each morning with Wonder, and Wonderment their guide, then Christ Most Gladly Abides In Their Day, Both Setting Before Them, And Being Their Way.

      THIS is the day the Lord has made;
      We will rejoice and be glad in it. Psalms 118:24

      Live in the Now: THIS day is abundant. He Provides And Protects. Maranatha!

  50. worldwide coup attempt?

    Just thought I would throw this out..

    What if....Xi was tired of US as top dog in the world? He bioengineers a virus and releases it on his own people in Wuhan, knowing 1000s of his own citizens will die, but he's able to limit the damage with strict governmental controls and shutdowns. Instead of releasing the true mortality rate, he reports the virus as flu-like with a death rate of 1-2%.

    Doctors, journalist and scientists who report otherwise "disappear". Meanwhile, what country is the #1 tourist destination in the world? Italy. He purposely infects 20 or so soldiers, and sends them to Italy to contaminate it.

    Xi knows the virus will spread worldwide and the death toll will be high. It will decimate the US economy, the dollar and bring the US to its knees creating world power vacuum which Xi will step into. With US crippled, he'll demand US conform or be denied needed medicines and goods and services.

  52. Unknown,

    God knows none of us are perfect or ever will be down here. If you have believed, then that's all you need. Your eternal security does not depend on you (thank God).

    May God grant you peace.


  53. Adding to my post above: When I have fear or anxiety it's usually because I want the rapture sooner than later... I'm thinking of my children and grandchildren and not wanting them (or us) going through bad stuff. But I fully trust the Lord and the devotional above has helped when I did get to worrying to give it back to Jesus....

  54. So there is a national emergency? The world is self-destructing because of COVID -19. I added all the numerical values of the letters COVID up and got 53. And 2 Thessalonians is the 53rd chapter in the Bible. So I looked up 2 Thessalonians 1:9. Here's what it says:

    "They will suffer the punishment of eternal destruction, away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of his might"
    2 Thessalonians 1:9

    Is this God's last attempt to warn us before the unbelievers suffer eternal punishment? Away from the presence of God? There is nothing worse than that. We can't even begin to fathom what that would be like. I don't want to!

    Will the wicked turn to God? In their affliction will they earnestly seek Him? I pray many do.

    I don't believe COVID - 19 is a punishment. I believe it is a warning and plea to repent.

    "Above all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires. They will say, “Where is this ‘coming’ he promised? Ever since our ancestors died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation.” But they deliberately forget that long ago by God’s word the heavens came into being and the earth was formed out of water and by water./ The Lord is not slow in keeping His promise, as some understand slowness. Instead He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance."
    2 Peter 3:3‭-‬5‭, ‬9

    Maybe this is the wake up call for some to repent and for some to pray fervently and be lights in the chaotic darkness.

    1. I agree too! I believe this is God's way of getting the attention of people and have them turn their eyes to him. I just don't think this is it though. This is a dress rehearsal for the worst thats to come but again I don't believe it's that season just yet. It's like the last minute preparations you do a month or 2 before a wedding this is that we are in the last minute preparations but we still have to endure more but again I don't believe that time is now just not yet.

    Trump rallies cancelled. Mission accomplished

  56. I for one think this is just the beginning of many worse things to come but I don't think we get to leave soon. I believe this is just setting the stage for the AC. This is a last attempt of gathering more souls for God.The media is adding to this hysteria and panic. I do believe with warmer weather things will die down as quickly as this virus came it will leave. It is very frightening to know humanity is reacting this way with the shelves of groceries being emptied and hoarding toilet paper, but I don't believe this is it guys. Also in regards to an April 3rd or Pentecost rapture I don't think it possible. I believe in a FOT rapture and I believe that may be a minute before that happens but again that's my opinion. To the unknown sister above I hear ya! It is scary and your feelings are genuine but take heart in our Savior. With everything going dark and shutting down for the time being it’s all precautionary. However just wait until April 1st things will be back to normal and we will have a new set of woes that inch us that much closer to that day. We are getting closer but I think this is only the beginning.

    1. A new set of more severe woes like collapse of the financial system, war in the Middle-East, extremely severe weather, persecution of Christians in Western nations, etc.

  57. This comment has been removed by the author.

  58. 84 million Americans had swine flu 2009-2010. 300,000 hospitalized and 17,000 died. No cancellations, no shortages, crickets from the media to protect a Pres they loved. Now they have a Pres they despise. Exactly 40 Americans died of CV most at a nursing home in WA.

    But Trump rallies have been cancelled and just about everything else. They are trying to take down the incredible economy because nothing else has worked thus far against a juggernaut in the WH who is driving them nuts.

    Primaries will be cancelled and Biden declared the nominee despite not knowing where he is most of the time and then a witch will fly into the WH.

    See the above link to the article by the MIT professor who says what a con job this CV is. CVs have been around about 4000 yrs. This CV has a 70% recovery rate.

    1. This is all true, it reminds me when Jesus talked about those who "strain at a gnat but swallow a camel".

  59. So, this paves the way for the AC who will be an economic, military and political genius. The one to save the day.

  60. I really hope this IS the time!

  61. My grandmother used to say I was a natural born worrier.
    I was and I COULD be.
    Except more and more as I grow into a deeper relationship with God (looooong hard experience),
    I'm more inclined to NOT worry.
    Stuff happens - especially in election years - just saying.
    That doesn't mean I don't pay attention to what's going on in the world.
    (It's ironic that because I am paying attention (ISRAEL), I'm not as predisposed to worry!)
    But, I'm not running around like Chicken Little and scrambling for toilet paper!
    * * * * *
    If God wore a t-shirt, it'd say "I've Got This!"
    I can't say I've personally experienced big spectacular miracles (other than the fact that I am alive and we live in a world of miracles).
    But on too many occasions to count, I've experienced God in the day-to-dayness of my life.
    Especially in the seeming LITTLE THINGS that may not be important outside the moment, but which matter to me: sick puppies, lost dogs and their fretful owners, furnaces going out and tiny puppers in the kennel, computers not starting. My children.
    And, if God can care so much about the little things simply because they matter to me, how much more does the God who created us and purposed a life for each one of us care about the BIG events that affect us all.
    * * * * *
    After my husband died, it was just the 4 of us - me and 3 children to feed, clothe, and educate.
    Accountants and lawyers ended up with a lot of money and things still aren't completely sorted, but we've always had enough.
    Some months the business does better than others.
    But, we've always paid the bills on time, I tithe off our income, we're generous with local dog rescues and shelters, and every month I say THANK YOU, Lord!
    I know that despite circumstances that we are blessed.
    * * * * *
    All that to say,
    Life happens.
    And death.
    Viruses too. (My undergrad degrees are in the sciences - biology/chemistry + zoology so I have somewhat of an understanding of what's going on. And sociologically, 6 degrees of separation has actually been calculated at 6.6!)
    None of this is anything new.
    Now, as in all times past, God's Got This!
    * * * * *
    So, instead of stocking up on hand sanitizer (kills bacteria, not viruses; soap and water is actually more effective), why not just ask?
    (I always tell my kids, it’s okay to ask, but sometimes the answer is NO.)
    The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
    James 5:16 KJV

    1. I have always wondered about hand sanitizer. Good ole rubbing alcohol has an odor but I think one cant go wrong with it.

    2. Jenny, your statement is false:

      "hand sanitizer (kills bacteria, not viruses; soap and water is actually more effective),"

      Hand sanitizer with more than a 60 percent alcohol solution kills viruses. It's well-documented.

    3. Miguel, I love you, brother, but Jenny's statement is not false. Alcohol will kill the viruses, which are made up of bad microbes, but, in the process, good microbes will be killed, as well, which protect our bodies. Our bodies are covered with good (pro) and bad (anti) biotics. It's the way God made us. Years ago they did a study in NY hospitals came to the conclusion that soap and water worked the best. They quickly buried that story. Why? Follow the money. Everybody can make their own soap - it's cheap and no side effects. Big business doesn't like that. Also, that is why antibiotics are causing so many problems for people as they upset the balance in the gut by killing good, as well as bad microbes. Believe me, I know of what I speak. Good old soap and water is best as alcohol can dry the skin causing chaffing and even bleeding which will provide an entrance for bacteria. We have two nurses in our family and it makes me sad to see their hands chaffed and raw because of all that toxic hand stuff they have to use continually.

  62. Amen Jenny!

    I love everything you said. I love what you said about God caring about the little things so, of course He cares about the big things. That is so comforting.

    I too come from a long line of worriers. I have spent much of my life battling between worry and standing on the truth of God's Word. It's a struggle, especially as a mom. I feel like a mother hen, not just to my kids but to all the people God put in my life. I want us all to be okay. But, I also, have seen God move in the little things in my life. We can trust Him. I know all our prayers are heard by a good God! He loves us.

  64. With all of the Noah talk here in the comments, I'm just curious what any of you think about this comment that I printed off a youtube comment section awhile back, and in fact, just read it a few days ago: Enoch was raptured pre-flood, a type of the Church - Noah, typology of Israel was KEPT THROUGH THE FLOOD. Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were a typology of Israel, they were protected by God THROUGH the 7 times hotter fiery furnace. Where was Daniel? Daniel was typology of the church and was taken or lifted up to a higher position removed from the threat of the fiery furnace. There are typologies ALL THROUGH the Scriptures. There MUST BE 7 YEARS! Anything else goes against the typology of God throughout all Holy Writ. Jesus said, "I go to prepare a place for you....I will come again & RECEIVE YOU UNTO MYSELF, that where I am there you may be also." He said this because of the Jewish tradition of betrothment & marriage. Groom meets bride, groom goes to prepare a place or a bridal chamber and extension onto his father's house. When the father says go and get your bride, he goes as a thief in the night and she prepared & waiting on him to come get her. He snatches her away & takes her to the bridal chamber at his fathers house for a period of 7 DAYS, the bride & groom celebrate & consummate their marriage. After the SEVEN, the bride presents herself and there is a huge feast AKA THE MAREIAGE SUPPER OF THE LAMB. Ask Moses what happens when you mess with Almight Gods typologies. Moses was told to strike the rock the FIRST TIME & water gushed forth, the 2nd time Moses was told to speak to the Rock, not to strike it. Because Christ is THE ROCK & He would only be struck ONCE. Moses in his anger strikes the rock in his anger however & it cost him the Promised Land. 7 weeks are declared for ISRAEL, NOT THE CHURCH, NOT THE BRIDE - we will be with our Groom for 7 years while God's wrath falls on this world & He is dealing with Israel. We are NOT APPOINTED TO GOD'S WRATH.

    Anyways, I know the commenter is focused on us going to be with The Lord before the tribulation, which I believe to be true as well, but I also am curious how all of this plays out as far as Enoch being a type of the Church, per Jesus' statement, As in the days of Noe.

    If you made it this far, thanks for reading, and I appreciate any responses!

    1. Yeah I agree with those typologies. The Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego one is particularly telling for they (along with those from all nations and languages) are told by a wicked King, who had absolute power, to bow down down before an image that is 60 cubits high and 6 cubits wide (note the 6's, the number of man - Dan 3:1). This obviously prefigures the end when all of the world will be told by a wicked king to bow and worship before an image of the beast least they die (Rev 13:15). But as you say, Daniel is no where to be seen in this scene just as the church is removed and no where (on earth) to be seen when the Antichrist has his hour. Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego likely point to the 144,000 Jewish men in the last days that are specifically set aside, sealed and protected by God for His purposes during that time.

      In terms of the Jewish Wedding picture and the church, the bride of Christ, yeah this is wonderful! There are so many customs and phrases in the Gospels that are part of this Jewish marriage process that we easily miss. And it is directly tied in to Jesus' departure and return for His bride at the rapture. And like you quoted, the 7 days that the bride and groom spent together in their chamber is very telling and points to the last 7 year period, Daniel's 70th week, when the bride is with the groom in the place He went prepare for her (lining up with the resurrection and chamber protection in Isa 26:19-21).

      If interested, there is actually a new, really good movie on this very Jewish wedding model topic which came out this month. It is called 'Before the wrath' and has Amir, JD, Jack Hibbs, Jan Markell etc Well worth watching : )


    2. Thanks for your response Elgordo, and I will definitely check out the movie!!

  66. I wanted to add another curious name in our politics today pointing to the Rapture. End Times:Darkness Descending has already mentioned Trump/Pense sounds like Trumpets. Let's not forget Mike Pompeo 70th Secretary of State of the U.S., sounding an awful lot like Pompeii where sudden destruction fell from an exploding volcano. There will be sudden destruction directly following the Rapture.

    1. There's a section in the following article under prophecy alert update number 4 titled "POMPEII AND POMPEO: THE 70 AND 9 CODE


    2. I read through the entire article above.

      It was probably one of the most important article I ever read on this topic. Would love to see more updates, esp with the deal of the century and current situation.

    3. I just made another update to that article a few hours ago concerning the Corona virus aspect of Hale-Bopp's prophetic significance. You may have read it before I got it published. If so, go back and you can see the latest one. It's called "A Trump and three crowns."

  67. Good morning everyone, I don't have anything new to add on the prophetic watch front; rather I want to address the situation we all face to one degree or another with the "worry battle." I am 76 years old with unsaved, saved-but-one-foot-in-the-world, prodigal children (I identify, Jenny!). I am concerned for them, but by temperament I am more laid back than others. That is to say I think we are born with temperaments that make us more or less prone to anxiousness. However, that being said, we all have our temperamental weaknesses to contend with. Sweet unknown, and others (Lilie?) who struggle with this, Pastor Rich's encouragement above is to kind and caring. Take heart, sweet lady.

    I'd like to share something that "saved my emotional life" years ago, when I was going through a very difficult family time. I happened across a book by Merln Carothers called Prison to Praise. The basic principle is to praise, and THANK, God in and for (yes for) all things--the proof text being 1 Th. 5:16-18 "Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus." Now, I am/was an English teacher and "in" and "for" are not the same thing! However when I came across Eph. 5:20 "always giving thanks to God the Father for all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ," I was comfortable praising, and thanking God, this way. It literally changed my emotional/spiritual life. Praying this way--and I am NOT diminishing the tragic and awful things that happen in life, but we can always at least thank God that He is in control and will bring good from it because He is good, and good to us--forces us to shift our focus off ourselves/problems and onto the only One who can do anything about it. By shifting our focus onto God, thanking Him for our circumstances, we find peace for our spirits, and open doors of possibility that perhaps would otherwise be missed. In respect for the readers' time here I will post a separate real life example of how this worked for me. Blessings sweet sister.


  68. Follow up to praising and THANKING God for all things. When my youngest son got his driver's license and first car, we had an experience that cemented this principle for me. Our household had a lot of tension and some very demanding expectations for behavior/performance. My husband, who traveled for a living, purchased my son's car as he was leaving for town on a trip. We lived 20+ miles from town and on the way home, my son called me to say his engine was overheating. Having no way to reach my husband, who can fix anything, I sought advise from a neighbor. He thought it would be ok for my son to continue home. Not. The next call I got informed me the engine had "blown." Oh my. My husband would blow his own gasket! I met my son in town, sent him home in my car and waited for the tow truck driver. As I waited, I groused: God! this is not the car I prayed for (reliable, safe, etc.), my husband will be beyond angry we let this happen, . . . . Suddenly I remembered, thank God. As I began to thank God for this blown engine, my focus shifted to other possibilities: maybe the tow truck driver needs to be encouraged, needs Jesus. Yes, now that was something to praise and thank God for! I was excited thinking of a discouraged sad person in need of Jesus. When the TT driver arrived, he was cheerful and happy. Oh. Now you must know evangelism is NOT my gift. But I always want to try. On the drive to our house I mentioned that I was a teacher at a CHRISTIAN school, hoping that would generate interest. No. I finally told him I am a Christian and don't believe in coincidences, that this was a divine appointment. He began to weep: his 13 year old son had attempted suicide, is girlfriend had just moved out that morning . . . you get the picture. As it turns out he had accepted the Lord in prison but had no church, no Bible, no hope. When we got to my house I gave him a Bible and recommended a church I thought he'd like. He left saying this had indeed been a divine appointment. I was beyond joyful. Was the blown engine, and potential fallout at home worth it, yes. AND my husband was not angry upon his return, the dealer who sold us the car replaced the engine (for more than we paid for the car)and they replaced the shocks that were also needed but hadn't been done prior! Hallelujah! Our God is so much bigger than we think. Everyday things. Huge things. All this is to say is that I believe thanking God for that blown engine shifted my focus off me and onto the opportunity to (more forcefully than usual for someone like me)"push" my faith toward this man. Without it I believe I would have missed this opportunity altogether. We can be encouraged in these difficult times. Our God is so faithful to do above and beyond all we dare dream, ask, or think!

    1. You actually brought tears to my eyes. That is not an easy task. Thank you for this opportunity to praise and thank the Lord with you. Amen!

    2. This is a great story! God is good all of the time! Thanks for the encouragement

    3. Awesome! Such a good reminder of the faithfulness of God and our ever-need to be thankful, bringing Him into each situation. In this current atmosphere of fear and uncertainty this will speak to all who read it I am sure. Thank you! : )

    4. Thank you for sharing, Judi. Wonderful principle that we can all apply as we often get frustrated with the outward circumstances and disappointments.

  69. you guys, oh my, i was listening to face like the sun (haven't really ever listened to his stuff https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N2CyNR1t5Pc&t=949s) he mentioned something along the lines of how government wants us to go hide in our homes a little and immediately Isaiah 26:20 came to mind

    Go, my people, enter your rooms
    and shut the doors behind you;
    hide yourselves for a little while
    until his wrath has passed by.

    and i went to go read in context the whole of Isaiah 26....i recommend listening to the video and reading the chapter (i know this prophecy is tied to different interpretations ...but suddenly i feel this might be the Lord saying that in this time we are to stay in our homes is the time this prophecy could be fulfilled..

    A Song of Praise
    26 In that day this song will be sung in the land of Judah:

    We have a strong city;
    God makes salvation
    its walls and ramparts.
    2 Open the gates
    that the righteous nation may enter,
    the nation that keeps faith.
    3 You will keep in perfect peace
    those whose minds are steadfast,
    because they trust in you.
    4 Trust in the Lord forever,
    for the Lord, the Lord himself, is the Rock eternal.
    5 He humbles those who dwell on high,
    he lays the lofty city low;
    he levels it to the ground
    and casts it down to the dust.
    6 Feet trample it down—
    the feet of the oppressed,
    the footsteps of the poor.

    7 The path of the righteous is level;
    you, the Upright One, make the way of the righteous smooth.
    8 Yes, Lord, walking in the way of your laws,[a]
    we wait for you;
    your name and renown
    are the desire of our hearts.
    9 My soul yearns for you in the night;
    in the morning my spirit longs for you.
    When your judgments come upon the earth,
    the people of the world learn righteousness.
    10 But when grace is shown to the wicked,
    they do not learn righteousness;
    even in a land of uprightness they go on doing evil
    and do not regard the majesty of the Lord.
    11 Lord, your hand is lifted high,
    but they do not see it.
    Let them see your zeal for your people and be put to shame;
    let the fire reserved for your enemies consume them.

    12 Lord, you establish peace for us;
    all that we have accomplished you have done for us.
    13 Lord our God, other lords besides you have ruled over us,
    but your name alone do we honor.
    14 They are now dead, they live no more;
    their spirits do not rise.
    You punished them and brought them to ruin;
    you wiped out all memory of them.
    15 You have enlarged the nation, Lord;
    you have enlarged the nation.
    You have gained glory for yourself;
    you have extended all the borders of the land.

    16 Lord, they came to you in their distress;
    when you disciplined them,
    they could barely whisper a prayer.[b]
    17 As a pregnant woman about to give birth
    writhes and cries out in her pain,
    so were we in your presence, Lord.
    18 We were with child, we writhed in labor,
    but we gave birth to wind.
    We have not brought salvation to the earth,
    and the people of the world have not come to life.

    19 But your dead will live, Lord;
    their bodies will rise—
    let those who dwell in the dust
    wake up and shout for joy—
    your dew is like the dew of the morning;
    the earth will give birth to her dead.

    20 Go, my people, enter your rooms
    and shut the doors behind you;
    hide yourselves for a little while
    until his wrath has passed by.
    21 See, the Lord is coming out of his dwelling
    to punish the people of the earth for their sins.
    The earth will disclose the blood shed on it;
    the earth will conceal its slain no longer.

    1. Not random at all. Isaiah 26:20 is the equivalent of Zephaniah 2:3, John 14:2 and Revelation 12:5.

    2. A THOUGHT...

      IF, by 3/27-3/28/2020 a good portion of the world is in lock-down (hidden indoors) that would mark seven (7) days before 4/4/2020. Noah entered the Ark how many days before the flood came?

      Seven days.

      Here's another one triggered by Paul Dawson for which I connected the dots before he got to it in his latest video. Read (Genesis 4:4) and (Revelation 4:4) in context of my earlier posting on the *why* a 4/4 RR.

      Another piece of the puzzle?

      Could be.

      I am now tracking water levels in the Sea of Galilee. Tipping my hat again to Paul!

      It is NOT FAR from the realm of possibility that we go home from behind *locked* doors and *shuttered* windows. If the Jewish mystics are right about their visions and the war in heaven peaks on the head of the year then we have very little time left.

      Time does not allow a fully documented posting tonight but I potentially see a war in the heavens in the planetary alignment we have forming right now.

      My meter is pegged.



    3. Psalm 91

      Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
      will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.[a]
      I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
      my God, in whom I trust.”

      Surely he will save you
      from the fowler’s snare
      and from the deadly pestilence.
      He will cover you with his feathers,
      and under his wings you will find refuge;
      his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
      You will not fear the terror of night,
      nor the arrow that flies by day,
      nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
      nor the plague that destroys at midday.
      A thousand may fall at your side,
      ten thousand at your right hand,
      but it will not come near you.
      You will only observe with your eyes
      and see the punishment of the wicked.

      If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,”
      and you make the Most High your dwelling,
      no harm will overtake you,
      no disaster will come near your tent.
      For he will command his angels concerning you
      to guard you in all your ways;
      they will lift you up in their hands,
      so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
      You will tread on the lion and the cobra;
      you will trample the great lion and the serpent.

      “Because he[b] loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him;
      I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
      He will call on me, and I will answer him;
      I will be with him in trouble,
      I will deliver him and honor him.
      With long life I will satisfy him
      and show him my salvation.”


  70. https://www.nowtheendbegins.com/drudge-report-peddles-coronavirus-fear-porn-china-closes-down-last-16-temporary-hospitals-sign-crisis-abating/

  71. I'm probably the only the person on here that does not see this as prophetic. Sorry I just don't. This is a pandemic, infection and diseases happen. We need to stop with the rapture talk because it adds to the fear. People are on the internet scouring for some good news and while the rapture is good news it's scary for some like the unknown woman who posted. This adds to the hysteria. China was on quarantine and has since now recovered, Italy is at its peak, we will soon be there but we must remain calm. Things will only get worse before they get better but I truly don’t feel that this is it. If we quarantine it’s to stop the spread. I read earlier on this post someone thinks if we are on lockdown God will come for his children and once the quarantine is up people will wonder where they disappeared to. I think that’s extreme but that’s my opinion. What it comes down to is we don’t know the day or the hour. We can guesstimate, make math equations, use concordances, study the skies, use scripture to tie into what we want to believe. We are in the end times have been since Jesus ascended into heaven. But we are closer now than ever before I won’t negate that. I even think we shouldn’t be setting rapture dates. Now it’s suggested April 3/4 I read on another post how many thought in March. When the dates come and go it only discouraged people. Fear is what is driving this hysteria. We need to pray against the spirit of fear that has grappled this nation, and the globe but we definitely need to stop adding to the panic. I along many pastors I know who are pillars of faith strongly believe this will blow over and by the end of April it will be business as usual. Just as quickly as this virus came it will go in the name of Jesus! We need to pray for the elderly, the people with compromised immune systems they are being affected. If I were to catch it I’ll recover many are recovering the news doesn’t report that though. The deaths have all been from elderly and people with underlying health issues although it’s tragic the news won’t release that info why? To keep the panic. I saw a post from another commenter here about how God gave a Pastor a vision that the coronavirus would soon be over. He went on to prophesy to someone who has cancer and just finished chemo, he laid hands on this person and started naming names, professions things this pastor wouldn’t have known if the Holy Spirit hadn’t revealed it to him he went on to say that they will live a long healthy life and watch their children grow up. That’s so encouraging!

    1. Yazlynn b,

      I am the one who threw out the possibility if we were to go in to lock down it would be an opportune for the Lord to come and snatch us all away. Do I believe it will happen at that time? 99.99999% of me says no, but it's that .0000000001% of me that hopes so. Since the days of Christ we have been looking and hoping for his return. I am so tired of this sinful world we live in, and can't wait for the day that we finally have Truth ruling the world.

      This site is for those that are watching, and waiting. The post above from the young lady being worried about her salvation is worrisome to most of the folks on here, but I guarantee you a multitude of prayers went up to the throne for her and her family when she posted here. My prayer for her is that if she is not 100% sure of her salvation, that she will seek it, and be in peace with Lord.
      The news coming out of China is encouraging, that things are returning to normal. Based off that alone we should expect the same thing to happen here (US) and around the world shortly. But I do hope and pray that it last long enough that more people will seek the Lord during this time of turbulence.
      There are many resources on this site for people that are seeking the Lord.
      If there is anyone here looking for the answers to questions they have, just ask. If you are scared and worried, just ask. Don't be afraid, now is the time, today is the day. Matthew 7:7,8: Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. 
      Looking upward and watching.

  72. President Trump did call for a national day of prayer for tomorrow on Sunday!

  73. Here Here Chris! As the Body of Christ our main mission during our sojourn here is to point people to Jesus our blessed Savior. I am sure this was Gary's main idea when he launched this site. As a believer since 1975 (15 years young at the time), He placed eternity in my heart from the get-go. I believe it is part of our new nature in Christ to long for His return. I have been a watcher for 45 years now and have not to this point sensed the nearness of His return as much as I do now. I will admit as a young believer I had dreams of enjoying life in this world, a wife, kids, grandchildren, a career (which the Lord blessed me abundantly with all of these). And I would still counsel the young Christian people to follow these dreams and experience the joy that God gives us here on earth. But what has kept me alive and living in all my 60 years is the hope that Jesus brings by promising His return for me and setting that joy in my path each and every day. I rarely comment on this site but I would like to take this time to say Thank-you Thank you Gary, and also Brad over on Rev12 daily for giving us this forum. It is encouraging to see young people such as yourselves so in love with our Savior and having such keen insights, truly God-given gifts that you are using to build and encourage His body. So many commenters also that I could mention by name that continue to encourage, keep it up! The camaraderie and the connection we have here in the Spirit is so comforting, fellow watchers that are "comforting one another with these words" so to speak. These are indeed unusual and trying times. We are all dealing with our own set of circumstances, ones that are never too much for Him to bear for us. His yoke is easy and His burden is light. And as much as this "light affliction" that we are dealing with seems too much to bear at times, that "eternal weight of glory" is truly gonna be something else once we get there. Could be soon...even so, come Lord Jesus! PS: Pastor Rich, if you are reading this, per your request I am in North San Diego county (Escondido to be exact). Schools and Church buildings are closed, store shelves are emptying...but this too shall pass because our God is HUGE!!!

    1. Mailmanjack,

      You should share more often, you speak wise words, from the heart. I don't often post either, but sometimes just can't contain myself. Most Christians you talk to about these things aren't even close to being on the same page we are. Most of us here see Jesus just behind the door, and it's hard not to scream out the KING IS COMING!!!

    2. Read it!

      I echo Chris O, you should share more often. As TobyMac says, "I see You in everything, always!"

      Keep looking up and pointing others to the One!

    3. I say it all the time, and people say... 'Fine, but what are you going to do for the (next 10 years/rest of your life) while you're waiting?' At which I sigh and continue to do my day to day activities...

      Feel like I'm the only one watching or even wanting the Lord to return sometimes, but fortunately we have places like this to congregate to reinforce each other's faith. :-)

  74. What if the virus dissipates and everyone one is in celebration mode and then BOOM, RR happens. I think of the verse "their celebration will be turned to mourning".

  75. "What if....Xi was tired of US as top dog in the world?"

    There is a significant probability the virus was engineered by China for sited release.

    Xi makes a willing puppet. Never forget, when you are dealing with Red China, you are dealing with a direct aspect of the Red Dragon, and the spirit therein is informed thereby. You must expect cunning, deviousness, and intrigue, and if you don't get it, then you are surprised.

    Relying on China for supplies and medicines is the reaping of American greed.

    The stock market was soaring, Trump was headed to a second term, the Red-Left was stalled (no globalism) and China was slowly sinking in its own pollution and collectivist inefficiencies.

    Something had to be done and possibly was. In modern Western societies, mass-media and mass-mind societies, you just have to look at the Hysteria Button, and it goes off all by itself. Self-replicating effects, chum to the media sharks. You can bet that the Democrat hierarchy is quite pleased about this virus.

    1. Ray.....I could not agree with you more. In the globalists mind, Trump is the single biggest road block to the one world government. God is either using him to delay such, or is using him to unravel and cause it to happen.

  76. Everyone I know is worried. I think that's normal. I was praying this morning and my prayer turned into a poem. I thought I would share...

    Excuse me, Mr. Fear

    I have something I want to say to you
    A message for you to hear.
    I can see what you are doing
    You're grinning ear to ear.
    You're marching through our towns and gloating.
    I can almost hear you cheer.

    I know you think you've won somehow.
    But let me make something clear.
    The one true God is on my side
    And He is always near.

    If God is love and I'm in Him
    Then you must dissapear
    Though I know you'll be back again
    To creep prowl and sneer
    But God will give me strength
    To face any dart or spear.

    I'm not alone, I'm His Church
    And as long as we are here,
    We're the family from every tribe and tongue
    Sent here to volunteer
    To help those in need
    Across cities and frontier.
    Our love and light and praises
    Are going to change the atmosphere.

    And on that blessed day
    When my Savior does appear
    He'll take me to my Father's house
    With all those I hold dear.
    So, I'm sorry. No. Not sorry
    To inform you, Mr. Fear
    That it will be you, not I
    Who will shed the very last tear.

  78. Trump is no dummy. He could have easily reassured the public and cite the swine flu numbers and this non-emergency flu but he didn’t. 70% recovery rate and most cases are mild. Even the Hopkins website is lying.


    1. He's only as good as the information he's getting or remembers from before they began trying to manipulate him. Let's not forget he's in the middle of a swamp and probably having to deal with daily survival concerns as well... If he quoted the numbers from memory, you better believe they'd criticize him for it with the 'fact checkers' who would go make up or 'find' radically different numbers...

      This holds true for everyone to be honest... every one of us probably believes a few facts that are outright lies without realizing it.

  79. And now people are forced to hoard (not that anything is left) BEcause everyone else is. Tim Henderson’s latest vid says we could have a two month shutdown here and Netanyahu is about to or already has shut down Israel.

  80. Remember Trump’s words about the calm before the storm and when a reporter asked, he said you’ll find out.

  81. CV death toll in America.....40. Most in a nursing home in WA. Swine flu deaths in America 2009-2010 ...17,000. Gee, who was President then...? While he rammed Obamascare down our throats.

  82. The same people who tried to feed you Russia collusion, Ukraine phone call, Stormy, impeachment are now trying to feed you global pandemic! And nobody even remembers the swine flu death toll because they buried it.

  83. I would just like to say that if talk about the Rapture strikes fear in the heart of any Christian there is something wrong. It could be for different reasons but probably the main reason is wrong teaching on the subject. If anyone is worried about their salvation sitting around and worrying about the Rapture wont solve anything. God makes getting saved easy, he didnt intend to make it difficult. Romans 10:9,10. If your not sure if you believe it then ask questions, do some reading and ask God to reveal his Word to you.

    I do agree that setting Rapture dates is not wise, it sets people up for disappointment and gives the scoffers more ammo for their ridicule when the time comes and goes. People (scoffers) are still talking about Harold Campings failed prediction 8 yrs. ago. I have a personal idea of when but in reality I dont have a clue. All I know is that it will probably happen in my lifetime (Im 58).

    The Rapture is a blessed event, the hope of every believer. Any talk of fear in relation to it is disturbing.

    1. I for one think that the failed predictions were required to happen to create the atmosphere where people go, 'Where is the promise of His coming?' as Peter said would happen. Hence, it's also a fulfilment of prophecy. Just as John the Baptist preached in the wilderness for who knows how long that Messiah was coming. Some people accepted it, others came out to mock.

      I'm not suggesting everyone start posting their predictions, but if someone in their studies finds a time frame thats interesting, share it and we can collectively study it and learn more. Then if it passes without the Trumpet call, we can just call it another mile marker if there was anything of significance. It's better to be ready than not expect anything. (Though I must admit it is rather hard to answer questions like 'Where do you see yourself in 5 years?' when you are expecting the Rapture any day now...)

  84. I'm not scared of the rapture. I hope for it. But I think it is normal to have some fear. I think as believers we should seek to comfort those who feel anxious and worried. The unknown can be exciting and a little scary . The first time I had a baby I had no idea what to expect . I was excited . I knew the outcome would be good. But I was still a little scared. The world is facing the unknown. People are scared. Some are completely falling apart. As the church, this is our moment. To shine. To have compassion. To be a witness .

    I revised my poem...

    Excuse me, Mr. Fear

    I can see what you are doing
    You're grinning ear to ear.
    You're stealing joy and changing things
    And making us feel weird.

    You're marching through our towns and gloating.
    I can almost hear you cheer.
    I know you think you've won somehow.
    As you act cavalier.

    But before you start rejoicing,
    I have a message for you to hear.
    The one true God is on my side
    And He is always near.

    If God is love and I'm in Him
    Then you must dissapear.
    Though I know you'll be back again
    To creep and prowl and jeer.
    But God will never leave my side
    With Him I'll persevere.

    And I am not alone in this
    As long as the Church is here,
    We're the family from every tribe and tongue
    Our mandate is quite clear --
    To help all those in need
    Across cities and frontier.
    Our love and light and praises
    Will change the atmosphere.

    So it's over. It's done.
    I'm being quite sincere.
    Pack your bags, be on your way
    To some other stratosphere.

    I have an eternal future home
    With a God who I revere.
    But for you it is much different.
    It's punishment. And it's severe.

    On that coming blessed day
    When my Savior does appear
    He'll take me to my Father's house
    With all those who I hold dear.

    So, I'm sorry. No. Not sorry
    To inform you, Mr. Fear
    That it will be you, not I
    shedding the last tear.

  85. Wonderful poem Lilie. Bravo! You put in prose what I am feeling as well.

  86. Pastor Steve Ciocolanti released a video today that the rapture would probably be in conjunction with a cosmic event, and that it won't be until the 2030s. Any thoughts?

    1. I actually heard about that too not from him but another site I follow and believe it to be plausible.

    2. Thoughts?

      He *may* be talking about a NEO asteroid that Tom Horn recently discussed on ISN. Read more about that object at 99942 Apophis on Wikipedia.

      If (Psalm 90:10) is the framework by which we examine the times we live in then the passage of Apophis is well outside of that 80-years. I would keep looking but will say that near earth objects (NEO's) often arrive undetected and without warning.

  87. When I read about the generation that sees the beginning will see the end...in my mind has always been that as long as one of the infants that was alive when Israel was born, until the last infant grows up and dies, that is the window of opportunity. Not 70 years, or even 80 years....but that could be way over 100 years. So my simple mind never has read that limited to 70 or 80 years. As long as there is one elderly man or woman still alive that saw Israel being born, then that is the window of the Lords return. It doesnt say this "whole" window of time will take 90.....
    100...or even 110 plus years that there would still be one alive remaining ....it just says the generation that sees the beginning will see the end. The end could have come in 1948 and it is possible to have one person born at that time keep that generation alive clear up till 2060. That would be a person 112 years old, which is possible. I personally dont think we will be here in 100 years post Israel's birth, or even 90 years. I really believe it will happen in the latter half of this decade, and it may indeed be in the 80 year window. It is just I dont see it written in stone as having an 80 year absolute window. My views are 3.5 years after the antichrist performs the A of D....but would gloriously love to be raptured 3.5 years prior.

    1. NO! Christ said "this generation shall not pass..." which means on or BEFORE a certain generation passes!

    Psalm 90:10 King James Version (KJV)

    10 The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.

    breaking news-
    UK "People aged over 70 will be asked in the coming weeks to self-isolate for up to four months in order to protect them from the coronavirus, Health Secretary Matt Hancock says." -Telegraph.co.uk

    time to isolate- 70 is past...

    "Italians over 80 'will be left to die' as country overwhelmed by coronavirus "
    also telegraph

    clearly our time frames here!

    after "80 years those left behind to die." upper limit approaching- board the ark! 70 is past -prepare to isolate yourselves in your homes/chamber, hide until the virus passes over- the indignation of God is at hand.

    parallels- warnings, last minute calls from the Lord God in His Grace and Mercy. Amen.

    same day news - "In an article for the Telegraph, the Health Secretary, (Matt Hancock) has said that "our generation has never been tested like this" as the government steps up its response to the coronavirus pandemic.

    a GENERATION- "never tested like this"....


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

    to try them that dwell upon the Earth... the hour of testing

    HM telling people on twitter to prepare to "shut themselves into their home for 7 days"

    Can't make this up- prepare to isolate. Be ready.

    1. Brilliant pin-points! Sources worthy of further digging!! Thank you for sharing!

      Blessings, always


      Italians over 80 'will be left to die' as country overwhelmed by coronavirus

      Quoting, The Telegraph,

      "Should it become impossible to provide all patients with intensive care services, it will be necessary to apply criteria for access to intensive treatment, which depends on the limited resources available."

      Coronavirus: Isolation for over-70s 'within weeks'

      Quoting, BBC,

      "Every Briton over the age of 70 will be told 'within the coming weeks' to stay at home for an extended period to shield them from coronavirus, Health Secretary Matt Hancock has said."

      I HIGHLY recommend the video interview included on this page that expands on the topic.

      US will have to 'hunker down' more

      Quoting, BBC,

      "A top US health official says Americans 'should be prepared that they're going to have to hunker down significantly more than we as a country are doing" over the outbreak.

      Asked whether the US should consider lockdowns like those seen in Europe, Dr Anthony Fauci from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases told NBC

      'I would prefer [that] as much as we possibly could ... I think we should really be overly aggressive and get criticised for overreacting'."

      Mass societal sequestration may be a reality soon...perhaps within the next two weeks. A reflection of (Isaiah 26:20-21)?


      No matter what, take heart and know,

      12 O LORD, you will ordain
      peace for us, for you have
      indeed done for us all our

      (Isaiah 26:12 ESV)

      Indeed, Jesus has done all of our works for in Christ alone we are saved!


    3. 'For they are soon cut off, AND WE FLY AWAY...'

      Psalm 90 reads like a mini-history of the world, it feels incredibly likely this is talking about the final generation...

  90. Amen my dear brothers Chris O and PR. His "slackness" is our salvation! Aren't you glad He waited for us? Let's keep going... John

    1. Amen!

      Always remember, when you see the word, "salvation" also see His Name, "Jesus" as Yeshua ("ישוע") is the same and means SALVATION/SAVIOUR. In the same way Joshua ("יהושע") and Jesus ("ישוע") are the same name.

      Jesus is our salvation.

      Thus you may say, "His 'slackness' is our Jesus! Aren't you glad He waited for us?"

      I am glad!

      Thank you Jesus for rescuing me!!

      I am yours forever and ever. AMEN!!!

    If you see blue helmets in your neighborhoods, hide your females no matter how young or old.

  92. Yesterday morning I read through the Hale-Bopp article as well. Very thorough. I watched all the videos embedded as well. I will go and read the one you just added:)

  93. At https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/146922/gantz-given-first-shot-at-forming-government/ "Gantz Given First Shot at Forming Government":

    "With the support of both Avigdor Liberman’s Yisrael Beitenu Party and the Joint Arab List, Netanyahu’s main rival, Benny Gantz was given the first opportunity to form a government.

    And although the former IDF Chief gets first dibs at forming a governing coalition, his chances of actually succeeding are slim. That’s because in order to do that, he would likely need the Joint Arab List to agree to join his government which is highly unlikely to happen.

    If Gantz fails to form a coalition, Prime Minister Netanyahu will have a shot at it. But unless the Prime Minister can recruit at least three defectors, his chances of forming a government don’t seem to be much better.

    Amidst the corona-virus crisis, Netanyahu tried to convince Gantz to join an emergency unity government. However his request fell on deaf ears."

    When Gantz would be the next prime-minister of Israel, what kind of consequences will it have for the rebuild of the Temple and other prophetic developments?

  95. Just thought about it, but maybe this is also a fulfillment of 'Be still, and know that I am God'

    The world is shutting down, taking a rest from it's normal 'day to day' activity. Maybe we should all just try to enjoy the time off, get refreshed, etc...

  96. If this coronavirus crisis is truly the NWO's attempt to take control and the church is a couple of weeks from going home to be with our Lord, wouldn't Benjamin Gantz be the perfect leader to allow the newly formed World Order to have their way with Israel after they promise the Jews they can build their temple? On the other hand, maybe neither form a government per Rabbi Kaduri????? More questions than answers!
