Russia Launches Full-Scale Invasion of Ukraine

Putin has made his intentions known and they were not confined to the rebel enclaves of Donetsk and Luhansk in the far-eastern Ukrainian region of Donbas. Troops are moving in from multiple sides and there are currently explosions in Kiev. It should also be noted that smaller Belarus, to the north, has essentially become a client state and may be absorbed by Russia as well. In a recent statement, Putin apparently declared Ukraine and Belarus part of historic Russia.

In addition to this monumental news, earlier this morning Chinese state media issued this genocidal threat indicating that an invasion of Taiwan may be on the near horizon:

Taiwan’s sovereignty has never existed. It’s only a matter of time that your secessionist regime will be eradicated.

There is much speculation of what this entails for the world and Bible prophecy. Many are connecting the dots with the common interpretation of Ezekiel 38–39. Intriguingly, if Russia absorbs Ukraine, that may explain the inclusion of Gomer among the listed nations in the anti-Israel coalition (Ezek. 38:5–6). Gomer is often presumed to be located in central or east-central Europe.

Below is a tweet showing locations of current attacks, presumably airstrikes in the areas west of Donbas. Troops have also invaded from Crimea.

As this is happening, it was speculated a nuclear deal with Iran would be reimplemented next week, but Israel has been shouting it down and saying it will not restrain military action. With Russia's invasion of Ukraine, it is completely unknown what will happen next week in terms of a deal. Iran may literally be days from sufficient enriched uranium for a bomb anyway. Israel may have to strike.

This is big. Very big. But I would caution everyone to remain prayerful and patient and see how this plays out in the coming days. Remember that all of this is suddenly happening as we reach a possible limit in the May–June timeframe related to the fig tree generation. I doubt that's a coincidence. Furthermore, this can't easily be separated from what we're all seeing with our own eyes: the sudden rapid development of global Orwellian statism, worldwide supply shortages, uncontrollable inflation, and a global economy on the very brink.

And it seems yesterday's extremely rare palindrome and ambigram date of 22/02/2022 (most common format worldwide) was indeed some sort of inflection point. The rumor going around that Pluto was back in the same spot as July 4, 1776 is basically false, but the rumor that a perfectly-formed rod or shepherd's staff formed, featuring all five of the visible planets plus the Sun and Pluto, was indeed true. Yesterday was important.

I mentioned before that I've been working on some thoughts regarding this Spring and where we are in light of what we're seeing, but given the news in Europe, I think it best to share a couple of these thoughts that are weighing heavily on me now:

1. This could really be it. But as other times before, we exercise caution and let God be God. There is no need for sweeping assumptions, but, rather, cautious and patient expectation, letting the pieces fall where they may. But again, this could really be it. The general presumptions seem to be finding some confirmation. The ball is rolling.

2. The fig tree prophecy is totally related to Israel. Not everyone agrees, and many have referred me to material from several pastors who have expressed other views, but believers can agree to disagree and let that be that. I've given some of my reasons here, here, and here. Jeff adds powerful weight to the arguments here. But our brilliant brother over at End Times: Darkness Descending made one of the strongest arguments of all from Jeremiah 24. Check out his article here.

3. At the moment, I have my eyes focused on March 16–17, which is the very last festival of the biblical year (Purim). The Feast of Purim, literally the "Celebration/Festival of Lots," is the commemoration of Israel's victory over the genocidal plot of Haman in Persia (ancient Iran). Given it's the last festival of the year and has many Revelation 12 undertones, there could be a very real connection with the last trumpet. And right now Iran is preparing it's modern-day gallows against the Jews in the form of nuclear-armed ballistic missiles. On both the modern Rabbinical/Jewish calendar, and the proposed "Nisan 1 Must Fall in the Spring" calendar, Purim is on the right dates this year. And how ironic it falls on 3/16–17:

. . . for God so loved the world that He gave the only begotten Son, that everyone who is believing in Him may not perish, but may have continuous life. For God did not send His Son into the world that He may judge the world, but that the world may be saved through Him . . . (John 3:16–17)

I also have my eyes focused on June 5–6, which is Pentecost this year. It also falls on the right dates regardless of the calendar. The theoretical cutoff which allows for the full Tribulation period of seven years to transpire before Israel exceeds 80 years of age in Spring of 2029 is in mid-June of 2022.

  1. Come quickly, Lord Jesus.

  2. I love that God made me a watchman. My address for all of my childhood and until I went to college and even after college was 2022 Story St. I was at home at 2022. My birthday was yesterday 2/22/????. My middle name is Ruth, Boaz’s gentile bride. Boaz representing Yeshua/Jesus, Ruth representing the bride of Christ, the Church. I was named after my mother Ruth who was 22 when I was born. No wonder God made me a watchman, huh 🥰.

    1. How awesome is that? I love that. Thanks for sharing that Rhonda.

    2. In 2018 God blessed us with a house on exactly 2.22 acres of forested land, ten miles from the nearest town. 222 is connected to the second coming of Christ and is to me a confirmation of our gracious Lords forgiveness and love for his children.

    3. A lot of coincidences there. Nothing happens by coincidences with God--right??

  3. At https://eschatologytoday.blogspot.com/2022/02/global-sitrep-a8-22how-far-will-god-let.html "Global SITREP A8-22: How Far Will God Let Russia Go in its Full-Scale Invasion of Ukraine?" you can follow the current developments in Ukraine.

    At https://www.prophecynewswatch.com/article.cfm?recent_news_id=5200 "Ten Reasons Nisan 1 Is A Pivotal Date In 2022".

    I think that this day 24 February 2022 is the day on which the Third World War has begun.

    1. I read these articles. While Nisan 2022 information was fun, I have to admit I have strong doubts that things are going to fall into place in just a few months. We don't have ten kings - and with Russia's current actons, I don't see how that would speed up a global cooperative government (either with or without Russia's involvement.) And, unless this resol es itself super quickly, Russia isn't going to turn its attention to an invasion of Israel any time soon. I mean, even if Israel went out of its way to provoke Russia, Russia is focused on Ukraine.

      So, as much as I want the Rapture to be right now, I still look at the international situation and say we've still got a ways to go.

      Still, it doesn't hurt to hope for this year!

    2. @sherrill7772/24/2022 11:30 AM:

      These 10 kings are 10 European NATO member states which will form an alliance during a time of war. This war between Russia and Ukraine can wreak so much havoc in Europe that the formation of this alliance can happen very quickly.

    3. To Moin,...and that would involve Macron,i believe he is quite involved in the military arm of the E.U. much like Javier Solana was 15 or so years ago.

    4. When will these 10 EU kings get their act together, when the EU is suffering from political, economic and societal chaos as a fallout from this war between Russia and Ukraine. This war can cause in Europe severe natgas shortages, exploding fuel and energy prices, prolonged power blackouts, cyber attacks on banks and power infrastructure. And very likely that this war will spread to other European nations like the Balkan Peninsula and that Russia will attack former Warsaw Pact states which now belong to the NATO.

    5. Jesus must have felt this way, in His flesh, as He was staggering through His scripted path, carrying the cross that He would be nailed to ...

    6. I read an article with Macron stating USA is overreacting to Russia- Ukraine conflict. He seems somewhat pro-Russia. In fact, both France and Germany seem reluctant to shake their fists at Putin. Germany depends on Russia’s natural gas I believe. Not sure about France. Also, Macron is not the head of any EU Army, so I don’t think he has any power except spouting off like he thinks he is so important. Honestly, because Ukraine is not a NATO member, I’m not so sure anyone will come to their aid. No one has today while they watch their capital city go down.

  4. Rhonda, that is neat...hopefully you will be home in 2022...

    video: Pentacost and Rapture - hoping for 2022

  5. March 16 = 3:16 = John 3:16 = PRAYAT316.com

    One interesting thing about March 16 is that it is not only Purim as an day for the rapture to impact the Jewish people...but it points to the most famous verse
    in the Bible. Only God knows for sure...Thanks Gary...

    Major moves are being made right now, not just in Ukraine, but also in the Middle East.

  6. i feel like i wanna say, "Fish On"!

  7. I'm very curious how this Ukraine invasion/conquest will impact the Ezek 38 war. Is it a rousing victory, that embolden Russia to feel she can do as she pleases in any country with zero consequences? It sure seems that way. Right now, the international community seems to be telling Russia that they can gobble up any country they want and only get a slap on the wrist. Plus, perhaps, Europe cuts the gas flow, turning to places like Israel, angering Russia. We won't know for a while yet, but I have no doubt that these actions will have some sort of impact on future prophecy.

    1. Q. With Russia invading Ukraine…are we on the cusp of the infamous Gog & Magog War—and the fulfillment of Ezekiel 38 & 39—where Russia, Iran, Turkey, et al attack Israel?

      A. Emphatically…NO. Ezekiel 38:8-12 says it’s IMPOSSIBLE for the Gog and Magog War to happen NOW. Why? Because FIRST, Israel MUST be at peace with all her enemies, including Russia & Iran…a peace treaty that Daniel (Dan. 9:27) and John (Rev. 6:2) see as the BEGINNING of the final 7-years of “tribulation”.

      Ezekiel further explains (38:8-12) that Gog (the demon in Putin) attacks Israel while Israel is honoring a 7-year peace treaty—most likely an expanded version of Trump’s already globally-revered Abraham Accord…thus, Israel is caught by surprise.

      Can that happen now? Can Israel be caught unaware? Of course not; that’s ridiculous. Right now, Israel is on ultra high alert, with 300+ nuclear-equipped missiles, sitting at the bottom of the Mediterranean, ready to defend themselves…and that will not change until Israel has signed a global peace initiative.

      For Believers of Jesus Christ, this is amazing news…since it shows how much of the puzzle is finished…and how very close we are to the end.

      Remember, Satan wants you to believe this is all years in the future…so you think you have more time…then fail to WARN the people that you LOVE.

      But Jesus and His prophetic Word say differently.

    2. @My Corner of Eternity 2/25/2022 1:26 PM:

      I think that the Ezekiel 38-39 war will happen during the first 3.5 years of the Tribulation period when Israel will be at peace with her neighbours after the confirmation of a covenant by the antichrist.

    3. Greetings Moin,
      You might be right about the timing of the Ezekiel 38/39 war, but I don’t think so for two main reasons:

      1.None of the main tribulation characters and events are ever referenced in Ezekiel 38/39. If the war took place in the first half why wouldn’t the following be mentioned in Ezekiel: a covenant being confirmed; the rebuilding of the temple; the two witnesses; the Antichrist and false prophet; the renewed sacrifices, and others not here mentioned?

      2. No world leader, I don’t believe, would be able to institute a peace treaty WITHOUT something drastic occurring to make the signing of a peace treaty possible. I can’t imagine any Moslem nation in the Mideast accepting some treaty that would allow for Israel to rebuild its Temple probably on the Temple Mount. However, it makes perfect sense to me to see the Ezekiel War play out BEFORE a peace treaty (covenant confirmed) is instituted. This way, with Russia and the Islamic Nations surrounding Israel totally crushed by the God of the Holy Bible, this shocking event could now easily allow for and cause a man of deceit to rise up and have an answer for the world….a man who now can broker a MidEast peace treaty because who will want to fight against Israel now after seeing what God just did? And of course, now, one can easily imagine a temple being built wherever Israel wants it….like I said, who is going to object?

      I know you may think after the peace treaty Israel will be dwelling safely, but will they really be safe with all those enemy nations still surrounding them who have not been humbled yet? I doubt it.

      Well, I’ve said enough for now…..I just want to be clear, you won’t hurt my feelings if you disagree with my thinking and you still hold to yours. My purpose is not to win you over as a convert, but merely to share my thinking and research in this matter. And let me tell you….Ezekiel 37-39 has been huge for me in my Bible Prophecy studies.

      Shabbat Shalom,

    4. @TennisMenace 2/26/2022 11:07 AM:

      "Ezekiel 38 17-23:

      17 Thus saith the Lord God; Art thou he of whom I have spoken in old time by my servants the prophets of Israel, which prophesied in those days many years that I would bring thee against them?
      18 And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord God, that my fury shall come up in my face.
      19 For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel;
      20 So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.
      21 And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord God: every man's sword shall be against his brother.
      22 And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone.
      23 Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am the Lord."

      These things are the Seal, Trumpet and Bowl judgments of the Tribulation Period which are described in Revelation. This means that the Gog-Magog war will happen in the Tribulation Period itself.

  8. You might want to check out the headlines at Drudgereport.com.

  9. I’m a little bit befuddled as to what “seems” to be the random placement of the Rev 12 Sign. Of course, the timing of the Rapture and Second Coming could be skewed somewhat from what we expect the fig tree generation to represent. In fact, that timing could be the strongest indicator that perhaps our figuring of the fig tree generation is in error.


    1. I do think the air quotes are important there. R12S fell during Jerusalem's jubilee year (50th year since the conquest of Jerusalem). It was 70 years after the partition plan to establish a Jewish state. It was 120 years after the First Zionist Congress, 100 years after Balfour, etc.

      It also arguably fell on the Feast of Trumpets or the day after.

      I guess the issue of placement now centers around the timing of the Great Sign in relation to the fulfillment of the sign, namely, the rapture and subsequent start of the Trib. 2021 looked good if R12S was a 3.5-year warning. 2024 looks good to some as seven years out, but to me that seems to far out. However, if the rapture and Trib commence this year, it could very well be that R12S was a seven-year warning to something that happens in the first half of the Trib. Maybe Satan and co. being cast out.

    2. Rev 12 sign could also be a literal "5"-year GRACE period. Based on the Blood Moon Tetrad of 2014-15, which many believe was the start of 7 "good years" of plenty prior to the final 7 "bad years" of the Tribulation (Gen. 41:29-30), the great sign of Revelation 12 is a sure harbinger of things to come. If that's the case, then the Rev 12 sign fell somewhere in the midst of the 7 good years.

    3. This got me thinking of the Luke 13:6-9 DUNGING OF THE FIG TREE PARABLE (which I wrote about in The Pope, the Alien Savior, and the Year of Dung ):

      He spake also this parable; A certain [man] had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came and sought fruit thereon, and found none

      Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why cumbereth it the ground?

      And he answering said unto him, Lord, let it alone this year also, till I shall dig about it, and dung [it]: And if it bear fruit, [well]: and if not, [then] after that thou shalt cut it down. - Luke 13:6-9 KJV

      In my article I speculated that 2021 would have to be the year the Lord RE-INSPECTED ISRAEL FOR FRUIT; HOWEVER, if the entire 4th year was given to the fig tree to be dunged, then Sep 2020 to Sep 2021 would be the YEAR OF DUNGING and the VERY LAST time the Lord would be inspecting Israel for fruit would be this coming Summer AFTER the year of dunging!

      I am hoping this is correct for then it would mean 2022 is our YEAR TO GO HOME! This would not preclude a Spring 2022 Rapture because remember when Jesus cursed the fig tree?

      And on the morrow, when they were come from Bethany, he was hungry:
      And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply he might find any thing thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was not [yet].
      And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard [it]. - Mark 11:12-14 KJV

      It was not yet the time of figs, BUT it WAS the time for green figs called taqsh. The absence of the taqsh meant that there would be no figs when the time of figs came so the LORD KNEW the fig tree was FRUITLESS as early as MARCH! (More on this at 2019 Season of the Green Figs).

      There is NO DOUBT the Rev 12 Sign was a harbinger to Israel and subsequently the world.

    4. YES Lyn! ... if the 'entire 4th year'(as the midst of the week) was given to the Fig Tree to be dunged ~ Now thats a big 'if', isn't it :) WOW !!!

  10. Archangel, I dropped the Drudge Repost when they turned left and abandoned Trump. I now visit WND and The Gateway Pundit and PROPHECY UPDATE as my go to news sources.

    1. Yes, me too. I just check Drudge to see the latest narrative being peddled:)

  11. Gary, This is a head scratcher for me. The Great Sign should be obvious to all if it is indeed a sign. How will anyone connect the dots if it was pointing to something in the tribulation? The only way it impacts the church is it was a sign that the end is near and or the rapture is near. I doubt those left behind to experience the tribulation will ever connect those dots or be impacted by something they all together missed back in 2017. What am I missing?

    1. Good questions for sure, but I'm not sure I agree with that first statement. Was the Bethlehem Star obvious to all? Seems like some took notice, but few took heed. Herod was even puzzled by the magi when they came and said they had seen the Messiah's star. Herod's response, paraphrasing: "Please do explain..."

      A lot of God's signs are for those who are watching. The rest of the world is spiritually dead and asleep.

      That said, it certainly made a media splash for a bit, so many millions were exposed. I was even honored to present the sign to the Washington Post (though I was careful not to predict the rapture).

      The sign is the sign. The question is whether it precisely fits the text or not. I believe the answer is clear. We also don't know how all God *has* used it in the past, or *will* use it in the future. Many came to faith because of the sign. Many, many were awakened to how close we are because of the sign. Since that 2017 inflection point there has been a hundredfold increase in YouTube prophecy-related ministries, so many people are telling the world the time is now. At the same time, the Bethlehem Star ended up serving much greater purposes in the future, as those most greatly benefited by its occurrence are those who have read the account in the Bible -- the account was compiled many years after even Jesus' resurrection.

      As to what the sign portends in terms of timing, that part is where subjective speculation comes in. No one knows exactly. I think the most important message is simply this: it's so close. We're practically there. The 2,000-year mark from all the important NT events is upon us.


    2. You took the words right out of my mouth Gary. I concur. Amen.

    3. Gary, I'd been wondering much the same thing and your answer was fantastically well thought out. Thank you!

    4. I like what you’re saying about the potential as indicator for another event during the Tribulation. Anyone with even a slight propensity for belief during that time will have some access to, and will be mindful of, such things. The potential audience is in the tens of millions. Then there’s the broad impact the sign had elsewhere during all these years.



    13 "I am the Alpha and the
    Omega, the first and the last,
    the beginning and the end."

    (Revelation 22:13 ESV)

    Jesus IS the first and the last. This then begs to ask in terms of the LAST trumpet, when was the FIRST trumpet?

    13 "'No hand shall touch him,
    but he shall be stoned or
    shot; whether beast or man,
    he shall not live.' When
    the trumpet sounds a long
    blast, they shall come up
    to the mountain."

    (Exodus 19:13 ESV)

    Hmmm...the portent of the FIRST trumpet? And just when did this blast from G-D Himself occur?


    And thus,

    16 On the morning of the third
    day there were thunders and
    lightnings and a thick cloud
    on the mountain and a very loud
    trumpet blast, so that all the
    people in the camp trembled.

    (Exodus 19:16 ESV)

    Which brings me to ask, knowing all of the above and more, that in light of Paul's first letter to the Church in Corinth,

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

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

    (1 Corinthians 15:51-52 ESV)

    I like you ask questions. I hope you're taking these honest questions to God in prayer. I hope you are humbly seeking His wisdom and peace; sharing the Love given you in Christ with those who are far from Him. Encouraging each other, gathering and breaking bread.

    We have nothing to fear as ones who abide in Christ. Nothing. For us, eternal life dawned at the twinkling of an eye (that infinitesimally small period of time between night and day) when the Lord Jesus rose on the morning of the third day.

    May we as a body of believers be united in truth, spirit, prayer, faith, hope and Love.

    I pray you abide in Jesus and His Word in you, always,


    1. Beautiful, Pastor Rich!

    2. Hillary!

      So how's that wonderful little boy of yours?!! Give him a BIG hug and a kiss from all of us!!

  13. Thanks Gary for a good explanation...just trying to wrap my head around it.

  14. Oh brothers and sisters, my heart is filled with fear and trembling for what is coming down upon this world. Yes we want our Lord's return, but there will be so many people suffering. All I can do is pray and stay near to the Word and the Body of Christ. Thank you as always for the informative updates. God bless you all and let us pray for one another, especially the believers in Ukraine.

    1. If all this horror means Jesus is at the Door, then bring it on.

  15. Can't help but think 7 years from Rev 12 sign is 2024. Add 7 more for the tribulation and it will be 2031, the possible 2,000 year mark from our Lord's crucifixion.

    1. That's the interesting observation. The whole fig-tree generation interpretation is incorrect. Check all the instances in the Gospels when Jesus used the word "generation". It's "unbelieving generation", "sinful generation" and so on. Its not about the length of time, but the type of people that live at that time. That's why Jesus said: "when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?" The answer is NO, because the unbelieving generation will not pass away.

  16. Watchwoman65 quoted from this article in her update this morning.

  17. Donald Trump is the Antichrist.

    1) Trump is of the tribe of Dan through his maternal side - the MacLeod clan of Scotland. Descendants of Dan are known to have migrated into Scotland through Scandinavian during Viking invasions, for instance the Damnonii of Scotland. The Tribe of Dan is the Israelite tribe that the Antichrist is prophesied to belong to, even from Genesis (Genesis 49:17), and also according to the writings of the earliest church fathers (Irenaeus, Hippolytus, Ephraim, et al.).
    2) He is Roman/Assyrian through the paternal side - the Drumpf family has origins in the Rhine River region about 80 miles from Trier, an ancient Roman city founded by an Assyrian prince named Trebeta. Roman and Assyrian heritage fulfills Micah 5:6 & Daniel 9:26.
    3) Also fulfills Daniel 7:20 - "his look was stouter than his fellows", (i.e. fatter).
    4) The name Donald means 'world ruler'. To 'trump' generally means to win by craftiness or deception. His name literally means 'world ruler who succeeds by deception'.
    5) He is the 'little horn' of Daniel 7. A Jewish 'trump' is a horn (shofar).
    6) He had a 'mouth speaking great things' (Rev 13:5, Daniel 7:8). "Make America GREAT Again".
    7) According to Revelation, the Antichrist is the Beast of the Sea and he gets cast into the lake of fire. Mar-a-lago means, literally, sea to lake. Trump is the Beast of the Sea who gets cast into the lake.
    8) The Jewish people already love Donald Trump, and since he was already involved with the "Deal of the Century" Middle East Peace Plan, he would easily be someone involved in brokering a future peace deal with them.
    9) Trump is famous for writing two books: 'The Art of the Deal' and 'The Art of the Comeback'. Making a deal (Daniel 9:27) and making a comeback (Revelation 13:3) are two of the major prophesied Antichrist activities.

    I could go on and on. There are a million other connections. He's been hiding right under our noses the entire time, but the church largely can't see it yet.

    1. I would add that he is also a builder in some respect. Is that a connection to the coming temple? His face on those silly coins, too! He is really loved by the masses here in America and abroad. He has a charisma and an energy, similar to Adolf. But he is also hated. The A/C will have resistance. I suspect that he also has Jewish blood. Ivana the ex-wife does. That makes his children Jewish. His kids are married to Jews. What is interesting is that it's almost like a chaos is being set up now so that the people will cry out for someone to help. I've seen hundreds of comments crying out for the return of Trump.

      We should be cautious though in these guessing games. Used to be Juan Carlos or even Tsipras of Greece,even Macron, who I think is interesting but is simply a banker stooge without power. But no cigar. I think it's a man that will be considered the LEAST possible candidate of all. I have had an eye on William of Wales, son of Diana, since 2004, after I read the book 'Antichrist and a cup of tea'. He is a military man (chopper pilot), which Trump is not, and if he becomes King of England, he already is much more loved and admired than Trump is. The Jews await a commander, a warrior, don't forget.

      Who know? Only God.

    2. quite interesting indeed!

    3. Jared Kushner, maybe. Not DJT.

    4. ,...you name them all,.. we've had them here ~ ~ but the 'real stars' are soo to appear!

  18. Hi Gary, while reading over the various contexts (king in interpretation) of the word "generation" (I agree the fig tree generation refers to Israel), I went back to re-read your article on the Nation State Law


    I find it interesting, enlightening?, that we have three key dates: 1948-1967-2018. That days from the July 19, 2018 date to the lauch of Russia's Ukraine war on the 23rd, is 1315, or 3 years, 7 mos, 4 days. I don't calclulate numerical meanings as many do, but I find the approx 3 1/2 year time frame interesting. I definitely hope 1948 is the start point for the fig tree generation, but what if 2018 is--i.e. taking in the 3 step completion of the fig tree's putting forth leaves? I don't see, based on current events across all spectrums, that 2018 could be a start point, but I find that three steps you outline very interesting--and significant, somehow, to our current watching.

    Thoughts, all?

  19. World War III ? Nah! I don't see it.

    Magog, the place where Antichrist comes from, is right in the heart of the territory that Satan has always controlled.

    The 10 kings come from the feet kingdom and the stone falls on the Feet not the legs.

    by taking the territory of Magog, for where it has always been, and right where it still is today, and leave it there, then Daniels' whole story is as clear.
    Ezekiel's Gog / Antichrist is the enemy from the north. In the Old Testament, the king of the north has reference to the areas of Syria, Turkey, and Iraq. The word north is used of Syria or the Old Seleucid Empire six times, of Babylon sixteen times, of Assyria one time, and of Iran one time. These are the lands once occupied by Magog, Gomer, Togarmah, Meshech and Tubal.
    Meshech, Tubal, Togarmah, Dedan and Syria traded with Tyre six centuries before Christ [Ezek.27:13-16]. These lands clearly define the north.
    All atlases of the Bible printed before the 1940's [and the Russian scare] show the land of Magog to be in the Northern part of modern day Iraq, just north of Baghdad.
    Meshech and Tubal are in the area that today is Turkey and portions of northern Syria as well as northern Iraq.
    It is clear that the leader, Gog / Antichrist, will be from Iraq and that he will become the chief prince of that portion of Turkey and the northern part of Syria along with Iraq, which is a good part of the Old Hashemite Kingdom.
    Some have interpreted the Hebrew word 'rosh' in Ezekiel 38:3, which is translated 'chief', to be a reference to Russia.
    Ezekiel 38:3 should be read as follows: "Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the prince, {pause} chief of Meshech and Tubal:"

  20. here is another source of info about the current happenings over there in the Ukraine.

    Vladimir Putin has kept frequent contact with Donald J. Trump as Russian soldiers, aircraft, and warships continue to bombard eastern Ukraine, targeting not civilians but Western-sponsored bioweapons laboratories that zigzag the countryside like a child’s connect-the-dots puzzle, a Mar-a-Lago source told Real Raw News.

    1. Our Worship is our warship against the arrogant one.

  21. Ezekiel 33-38 triggered - not many will remember this great song - "Moscow - Moscow" ha ha the LORD is laughing all the way to the Kremlin with Russia...Russia...Russia... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kqDGL-KWiOY - (43 years to the date when the then US administration boycotted the Moscow Olympics) - WW2 ended 77 years ago – the 1st and 2nd atom bombs were dropped 77 years ago on Nagasaki and Hiroshima, Japan – WWW3 could commence straight after the Winter Olympics when the Ukraine winter ends…thus fertile killing fields for global war when the ice thaws in the Ukraine. Alaska, Canada, Cuba, South China Sea, Taiwan, India now Ukraine surrounded by North Korean, Russian and Chinese troops! 3 jabs = WWW3 – coincidence or not? Global lockdOWN – New World Order reversed commenced 23/3/2020 =66 to 20/2/2022 = 66 GOD is talking through the numbers – coincidence or not? From and including: Monday, 23 March 2020 To, but not including Sunday, 20 February 2022 (end of Winter Olympics) Result: 699 days/666 inverted - only 4 days late! Revelation 6:6 Verse 6. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil - NOT OLIVE OIL EITHER! Major harbinger signs this week peoples!

  22. This may contradict what many have thought about Vlad Putin but I dont think that this an "invasion" of Ukraine to re-absorb them back into the old soviet state. Russia is not going to occupy Ukraine, Ukraine is still technically a part of Russia. The attacks are directed against what are believed to be bio-weapons laboritories which Putin has complained about for years. No this is not WW3. Putin is doing a good thing against some really evil characters that have made a nest in that country and some well known corrupt U.S. officials are involved. This will not descend into a full scale conflict, however I also predict that China will take Taiwan.

  23. Amazing comments here. I love the collective wisdom. I hope Trump is not the AC. I know If so I was duped big time. I know recently JD Farag has come out against Trump for various reasons in last two prophecy updates.

  24. We are definitely on the VERGE, Brothers and Sisters!

    In an above Comment I shared:

    In my article I speculated that 2021 would have to be the year the Lord RE-INSPECTED ISRAEL FOR FRUIT; HOWEVER, if the entire 4th year was given to the fig tree to be dunged, then Sep 2020 to Sep 2021 would be the YEAR OF DUNGING and the VERY LAST time the Lord would be inspecting Israel for fruit would be this coming Summer AFTER the year of dunging!

    I am hoping this is correct for then it would mean 2022 is our YEAR TO GO HOME! This would not preclude a Spring 2022 Rapture because remember when Jesus cursed the fig tree in Mark 11?

    Mark 11:13 says it was not yet the time of figs, BUT it WAS the time for green figs called taqsh. The absence of the taqsh meant that there would be no figs when the time of figs came so the LORD KNEW the fig tree was FRUITLESS as early as MARCH! (More on this at 2019 Season of the Green Figs).

    Sherrill777 wrote "While Nisan 2022 information was fun, I have to admit I have strong doubts that things are going to fall into place in just a few months. We don't have ten kings..."

    I agree that Nisan 1 is a possible Rapture date HOWEVER it MIGHT be too early for the Rapture only because God's desire I believe is to give as much time as possible for people to come to salvation.


    As far as the TEN KINGS--I could be wrong but it is my understanding that these 10 kings will be FALLEN ANGELS and will not appear on earth until Archangel Michael kicks Lucifer and his fallen angels out of the 2nd heaven in Rev. 12. (For more Scripture and info on this check out my article The Revelation 12 Galactic Federation, The Great Re:Set, and The Rapture.

    Bottom line--I have great hope for a 2022 Rapture!

  25. Videos have now been taken of Russian TOPOL-M intercontinental ballistic missiles - nuclear missiles - moving on Truck Launchers around Moscow and on highways moving toward Europe.

    Central Banks Risk Being Hit With Missiles if they Cut Russia from SWIFT Banking System

    Looks like Putin has made some rather eye-opening threats ...

    "I would now like to say something very important for those who may be tempted to interfere in these developments from the outside. No matter who tries to stand in our way or all the more so create threats for our country and our people, they must know that Russia will respond immediately, and the consequences will be such as you have never seen in your entire history. No matter how the events unfold, we are ready. All the necessary decisions in this regard have been taken. I hope that my words will be heard” (Vladimir Putin).

    Yet, interference and deployment of NATO troops to the borders of Russia are exactly what seems to be occurring in response to this Russian move on Ukraine. This kinda underscores how close we may be getting to that section of the Gog/Magog war that informs us that "fire" will be sent upon the land of Magog and "those that dwell carelessly in the aisle."

    And, of course, if those Topol missile videos are authentic, the pronounced bear theme that occurs after the rapture of Elijah in 2 Kings 2 probably should come rushing to the forefront of one's cerebral cortex right about now. If nothing else, that particular piece of the puzzle seems to be moving into place.

    We watch, we wait, we wonder.

    1. Is Russia hits central banks with missiles, this will mean the end of currencies like the Dollar and the Euro and a complete financial disaster.

    2. The world will have far more to worry about and we will all be Home.

    3. Amen to that, Pastor Rich!

  26. Don't look now but ...

    EU, US Agree To Expel "Selected Russian Banks" From SWIFT, Sanction Russian Central Bank

    In the midst of watching the developing scenario of the possibility of the soon-coming Gog/Magog war of Ezekiel 38 & 39, it is rather easy to take our eye of the other ball floating around out there - and that is the ball of Damascus, Syria. As we all know and are aware, before Gog/Magog will come the destruction of Damascus in one night. That situation is an intense one right now and could explode at any moment. It is my opinion that the rapture will occur BEFORE the destruction of Damascus.


    1. SO FAR at least . . . I’m not getting an Ezekiel 38 kind of vibe from any of this. If anything, I’m seeing significant distraction from such a thing. The primary players are far too occupied with more urgent, resource intensive matters. There’s even large potential for a significant rift between Russia and Turkey. Erdogan is being pointedly reminded that they’re a NATO member, and he’s making plenty of sound in that direction. There’s even a suggestion that he could close off Black Sea access to the Russian navy. That’s probably unlikely, but Russia and Turkey have been none too cozy during recent times.

      But one possible turn does tickle the brain. If Putin gets further humiliated in Ukraine, and the world’s so far amazing resolve holds up, he could turn his fury further south, causing chaos in the Middle East. But it’s still a challenge to see Turkey, and maybe some other supposed players being up for it. So, for me at least, and so far…this turn of events seems a distraction to the most prominent passages of prophecy. Certainly it’s laying the longer term groundwork, but I see nothing immediate. Hopefully I’m wrong.


    2. And…Turkey is a NATO member.

  27. Among the chatter and static from the ground are US confirmation of the downing, by Ukraine, (perhaps not), of 2 Elite Paratrooper jump craft, loaded and en route with 200 men in each plus crews. That, along with other details from the first major conflict being streamed on social media make the projection of 1k Russian troops KIA in the initial 24 hours quite likely true.

    The wreckage of separate large Russian convoys decimated by the Ukrainians, videos of Russian tanks being overwhelmed by Molotov cocktails by civilian militia in the streets abound, as do rumors of bus loads of surrendering Russian troops in some areas and numerous Russian tanks sitting by the road and out of gas with grumbling crew nearby. While glorious wins for the glorious kingdom are surely happening around, as well, this 'other side of the coin' ubiquitous in such ethnically rich conflicts among clan, may well make this wicket stickier than Putin was gaming for and encouraging him to add some more muscle to the mix, as we are now seeing in Kiev.

    Shaken, not stirred, please...

    1. I understand that many Russian soldiers are conscripted, not sure why they’re even in Ukraine and, therefore, giving up and surrendering.

  28. Over at www.nowtheendbegins.com the podcast called,"Putins secret spiritual destiny" is very revealing! Good for them

    1. If Putin wanted to capture the Kiev for the spiritual purpose then he could do it in 2014. He had much better chance back then. Unless he discovered this "spiritual destiny" just recently.

    2. Nothing there and I searched the site. Can you post a link?

  29. Great article.


  30. This is of course just my personal opinion but I recommend that all be very wary of what the main stream news media reports about whats going in Ukraine.

    1. Watch unto PRAYER,... Be Still and Know,...Hosanna in the Highest

    2. Yep, the US lying propaganda media Especially "Apple news" on your phone!

  31. https://endtimesdarknessdescending.wordpress.com/2022/02/17/at-the-time-of-dawn-on-the-morning-of-the-third-day-the-1984-48-terminate-code/#more-11904

  32. I believe that 2017-2024 is the period of the 7 years of signs for the whole world. It's a preview of the 7-years of the tribulation. As 2017 was full of signs, so is 2024 going to be.

    Trump is the type of the Antichrist of the 1-st half of the tribulation, when he was helping Israel. Putin is the type of Dragon that gave the power to Trump. As Trump had moved the embassy to Jerusalem, so AC will assist Jews with the Temple. AC will be revealed after the Rapture, so no point in guessing. Believers wait for Jesus rather than AC.

    The name Biden is B-DAN in Hebrew, and it means House of Judgement. He became a president in the 2nd half of the 2017-2024 period. That's when the judgement of God will start, and that's when Jesus starts to unseal the scroll. Actually, the whole unsealing happened in Heaven and it's kind of out of our timeframe, but the full manifestation will start in the 2nd half of the Jacobs trouble.

    Coronavirus is the sign of the 1st Horseman. White masks, doctors, bla-bla-bla. No one can buy or sell without a mask or a certificate or vaccine or covid-passport, etc. There are just types or signs.

    The war that just started by Russia in Ukraine and will go around the world (like Covid did) is the sign of the 2nd Horseman.

    BTW, Covid started actually in Russia and not in China. Read about the explosion at the Vector laboratory in Novosibirsk on 09-16-2019. It happened right before the outbreak in China. The was a significant spike of atypical pneumonia in the fall of 2019 in the south region of Russia. Russians for a long period of time didn’t want to acknowledge the existence of Covid, because they knew where it came from.

    If we follow the direction of Covid and how it spread: Russia-China-South Korea-Taiwan etc, so this could be the pattern for the local conflicts.

    The next one is the economic collapse that will also start from Russia and go around the world.
    The western sanctions on Russia that just announced plus the war will steed up the process.

    The Omega Covid variant might be discovered in 2024. It could be the worst. Jesus is the Alpha and the Omega. He is the First and the Last who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty. The 2024 could be the year of the Gog-Magog war.

    So, pray for your “liberal” government and don’t be like our Ukrainian believers, who protested against Yanukovich in 2014. Apostle Paul didn’t write: “pray to have a conservative government”, he wrote to pray “for ALL who are in authority that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life”.

    In my Bible I see Jesus being more “liberal” rather than “conservative”, because He loved to dine and spend time with tax-collectors and prostitutes, giving them the gift of no condemnation that empowered them to go and sin no more! (John 8:11)

    On the other hand, “conservatives” always persecuted Him, calling Him a sinner. They even tried to intimidate Him about the Galileans, whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices. Jesus was from the Galilee, and they have said that nothing good comes out of there and were trying to scare Him using that incident as example what might happen to Him.

    What was Jesus’ response? “Do you suppose that these Galileans were worse sinners than all Galileans, because they suffered such things? I tell you, no; but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish.”

    So let us not be judgmental towards the countries we live in or the kind of government we have, but rather pray for them! _/\_

  33. 77 years after the liberation of Europe from the Nazis by the allies and the subsequent end of WW II, a new great war is raging in Europe. 77 is a very prophetic important number, 7x11=77. Both 7 and 11 are prophetic numbers, 7 the number of fulfillment and 11 the number of chaos, disorder and judgment.

  34. New York Times: https://www.nytimes.com/2022/02/24/business/ukraine-russia-wheat-prices.html "Ukraine Invasion Threatens Global Wheat Supply". See also The Economic Collapse Blog: http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/as-world-war-3-escalates-get-ready-for-a-terrifying-breakdown-of-our-food-and-energy-systems/ "As World War 3 Escalates, Get Ready For A Terrifying Breakdown Of Our Food And Energy Systems".

    These are signals that the Rapture and the Tribulation Period are very near, maybe a matter of a few days/weeks, because during the early part of the Tribulation Period, food will be so expensive that an average wage is entirely spent on food. The ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine may have kick-started this.

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

    1. Fertilizer supplies are also under assault.

    2. Right on Moin,

      ...an echo of that seen here,

      Ukraine invasion: Russians feel the pain of international sanctions

      Quoting, BBC,

      Over the weekend the [Russian] central bank appealed for calm amid fears of a run on the banks, which happens when too many people try to withdraw money.

      "There are no dollars, no roubles - nothing! Well, there are roubles but I am not interested in them," said Anton (name changed), who is in his late 20s and was queuing at an ATM in Moscow.

      "I don't know what to do next. I am afraid we are turning into North Korea or Iran right now."

      This same report states interest rates have since doubled to 20%.

      The four horsemen are those who come. We hear them as they approach and their spirit is already here. It always has been -- but their arrival in full has yet to come. The spirit of AC is clearly with us in this conflict.

      Evil and suffering are not normal. This is not the way it originally was and not the way it will be. We are living in a temporary period of time that is the exception not the rule.

      Children of Light will be known by how they Love. The seed of the serpent will be known for their fear-fueled anger and pride. Division is it's native language and it is here to steal, kill and destroy.

      43 "You have heard that it
      was said, 'You shall love
      your neighbor and hate your

      44 But I say to you, Love
      your enemies and pray for
      those who persecute you,

      45 so that you may be sons
      of your Father who is in
      heaven. For he makes his
      sun rise on the evil and on
      the good, and sends rain
      on the just and the unjust.

      RED LETTERS (Matthew 5:43-45 ESV)

      Such faith is an ACT OF STRENGTH! Strength that exceeds lies and cowardice of the enemy. Faith that endures and is backed by the Father Himself. For God alone knows the heart of man and He will judge each according to his works.

      Dust rises from the horizon by the chariots of war. The sounds of their horses and shields are heard from afar. The world trembles in fear but will be in utter terror at the sounding of the Trumpet.

      Be at peace and be ready. Do not fear the armies of Pharoah for soon you shall see them no more.

      (Exodus 14) records the number of the armies of Egypt,

      6 So he made ready his chariot
      and took his army with him,

      7 and took six hundred chosen
      chariots and all the other
      chariots of Egypt with officers
      over all of them.

      (Exodus 14:7-8 ESV)

      The number 600 in Hebrew can be rendered as the sum of two letters. Remember, letters are also numbers in Hebrew. They are,

      "תר" = "ת" + "ר"

      200 + 400 = 600

      Resh ("ר") is the 20th letter of the Hebrew alephbet. Tav ("ת") is the 22nd and last letter of the Hebrew alephbet. Not being dogmatic but I think it's interesting that the 20th letter added to the 22nd letter,

      20th letter + 22nd letter = 600

      20 + 22 = Six hundred chosen chariots

      20 + 22.


      Hmmm, isn't that interesting?

      So now you know a little more about Exodus, Hebrew letters and numbers.

      Have no fear Children of Light. Jesus is coming!

      Repent and humble yourselves, workers of inequity.


    3. Sorry but im not buying that Russia is being distressed by any sanctions and any quote suggesting otherwise is propaganda. Oil is 100+$ a barrel now. It was in the 90's even before the war. Russia's main export is oil which means they're benefitting from the the price spike ironically from our own high gas prices. This is the direct result of the fool who is currently president and his energy policies, shutting down our domestic oil production. The conflict will be short and Ukraine will not be annexed by Russia.

  35. During a couple of past posts I’ve suggested that people not shrug off the concept of sanctions as petty and weak, due to the vast banking and economic power possessed by the West. It’s just that milder forms of sanctions have been applied in the past. But there are good reasons for it. Full-force, or even close to it, can in themselves constitute an “act of war”.

    Well . . . now the Ruble has sunk to the value of 1-cent. Think about that. Things could get very rough in unpredictable ways.


  36. I've been alarmed at the way a lot of the Christian community has fallen for Western propaganda about Ukraine. If anything, Zelensky is now at the top of my list of potential antichrist characters. An obscure jew who all of a sudden is hailed as a hero and loved by everyone in the world? Something stinks.

    1. Is there any calculator in which we can calculate the (Hebrew) numberv value of Volodymyr Oleksandrovych Zelenskyy? Because the number value of the antichrist's name is 666.

    2. Moin, I thought we needed to calculate the number of a name in Greek?

    3. Well, I certainly hadn't considered that, but it's possible. Or a prefigurement. A random Jew bursting on the scene and hailed as a hero... that's certainly what Israel is looking for. Food for thought at least.

  37. Is it likely that Volodymyr Oleksandrovych Zelenskyy is the future antichrist and does his name have a number value of 666? I think that it is very suspicious that Ukraine wants to be a member of the EU and that he is very popular in the European Parliament.

    See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=08nRiZOv9fU "Standing ovation as Zelensky tells European Parliament to ‘prove you are with' Ukraine".

    1. Ok, I've been pondering this speculation. How's this for taking the idea and running with it a bit further (lots of "ifs" just for fun here)...

      What if Zelensky survives, but loses Ukraine, and somehow is forced to leave that country (perhaps injured and evacuated by supporters). He no longer has a country, but is welcomed in Israel as all Jews are. He recovers and grows in popularity. Meanwhile, Russia furious with Israel for not supporting them and harboring Zelensky, moves to take the Golan Heights. The rest of the world, as it did with Ukraine, is unwilling to step in militarily. Zelensky very publicly "helps" with Israel's defence (although we all know God does the defending) and is proclaimed by Israrl as their Messiah, sincethey think the Ezek 38 war is the final war before the Messianic Kingdom.

      And somewhere in there is the Rapture.

      Eh, probably won't go down that way, but it makes for interesting speculation.

    2. Daily Crow has some interesting shots of the "hand" some Mr. Z.

  38. I agree, seeking to understand other's point if view is important. Unfortunately for Putin, the reasoning he's provided doesn't seem to hold up. He's used "Russian minorities are persecuted! We're just protecting them!" Except he provides no evidence, nor does the invasion appear to be protecting anyone or anything. He's also used the excuse that NATO waiving yo admit Ukraine, except that was false. Several NATO members (such as Spain) opposed Ukraine membership, so it was dead in the water. There was talk of moving missles into Ukraine, and possibly even actions in that regard, but that's a poor reason to invade since there was no evidence of Ukrainian aggression.

    So, overall, after (briefly) looking into it, it looks to my limited eyes as a simple power/land grab with no legitimate justification.

  39. Okay, who thinks that the current (and likely future) economic turmoil will push the world closer to a digital currency? I am not fluent in anything with money theory, but a huge financial mess could be a very compelling reason for the world to "reset" things to try to fix the situation.

    1. I don't think this conflict will push the world toward digital currencies but it will make them more inviting on key levels. Especially that you can directly convert digital to dollars and vice-versa keeping them in your digital wallet and not under your pillow as many in the world have had to do in times of trouble and uncertainty.

      I do think that AI and blockchain/crypto will be tied at the hip and that the mark of the beast will be tied to a global crypto; one that is likely not on the scene yet. One coin to rule them all as it were.


      Bitcoin jumps back above $40,000 as Russians switch to crypto

      One of the other stories in the news is how countries are starting to ban crypto-mining or developing their own crypto-currency. China and Russia are both have feet in that camp if memory serves.


    The following is a repost of part of an earlier post today. I thought it worthy to set apart as a stand alone as it caught my attention as it was shown me today.

    (Exodus 14) records the number of the armies of Egypt pressing the attack on Israel as they were trapped between the mountains and the sea,

    6 So he made ready his chariot
    and took his army with him,

    7 and took six hundred chosen
    chariots and all the other
    chariots of Egypt with officers
    over all of them.

    (Exodus 14:7-8 ESV)

    The number 600 in Hebrew can be rendered as the sum of two letters. Remember, letters are also numbers in Hebrew. They are,

    "תר" = "ת" + "ר"

    200 + 400 = 600

    Resh ("ר") is the 20th letter of the Hebrew alephbet. Tav ("ת") is the 22nd and last letter of the Hebrew alephbet. Not being dogmatic but I think it's interesting that the 20th letter added to the 22nd letter,

    20th letter + 22nd letter = 600 chosen chariots

    20 + 22 = A specific numeric value

    20 + 22 = War


    Hmmm, isn't that interesting?

    No, still not being dogmatic about this but as a product of my quiet time in study it sure caught my attention.

    Study well!


    ‘Yes, He Would’: Fiona Hill on Putin and Nukes

    An interesting look at the situation in Eastern Europe and the historic events leading up to where we are today in an interview with Fiona Hill,

    Quoting, Politico,

    All of the conflicts that we’re seeing have roots in those earlier conflicts. We are already in a hot war over Ukraine, which started in 2014. People shouldn’t delude themselves into thinking that we’re just on the brink of something. We’ve been well and truly in it for quite a long period of time.

    But this is also a full-spectrum information war, and what happens in a Russian “all-of-society” war, you soften up the enemy. You get the Tucker Carlsons and Donald Trumps doing your job for you. The fact that Putin managed to persuade Trump that Ukraine belongs to Russia, and that Trump would be willing to give up Ukraine without any kind of fight, that’s a major success for Putin’s information war. I mean he has got swathes of the Republican Party — and not just them, some on the left, as well as on the right — masses of the U.S. public saying, “Good on you, Vladimir Putin,” or blaming NATO, or blaming the U.S. for this outcome. This is exactly what a Russian information war and psychological operation is geared towards. He’s been carefully seeding this terrain as well. We’ve been at war, for a very long time. I’ve been saying this for years.

    Reynolds: The more we talk, the more we’re using World War II analogies. There are people who are saying we’re on the brink of a World War III.

    Hill: We’re already in it. We have been for some time. We keep thinking of World War I, World War II as these huge great big set pieces, but World War II was a consequence of World War I. And we had an interwar period between them. And in a way, we had that again after the Cold War. Many of the things that we’re talking about here have their roots in the carving up of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and the Russian Empire at the end of World War I. At the end of World War II, we had another reconfiguration and some of the issues that we have been dealing with recently go back to that immediate post-war period. We’ve had war in Syria, which is in part the consequence of the collapse of the Ottoman Empire, same with Iraq and Kuwait.

    1. She’s exactly right. Virtually nothing exists in a vacuum. The tensions, animosity, and low level actions throughout modern history have been related to a much larger picture, and the story continues. Wars don’t begin and end neatly, they slow simmer for decades before and after. Nothing that’s happening now in Europe (or many other locations) revolves around new issues or causes. People who think so, are not very familiar with history.

      As I’ve said here before: much of what will happen building up to the End Times is organic activity that would happen even if prophecy was magically out of the picture. Society has reached a point that in some ways is similar to past transitions, such as agrarian to industrial, but this transition is vastly larger and more destructive than anything in the past. Then add the old frictions of drawn maps, and struggles to maintain dominance. And if you take that worldly template and overlay biblical prophecy, everything makes sense. Much of what’s happening is organic, but it IS being used by God to bring about his plan.


  42. Brothers and sisters I am so discouraged.

    There is no doubt, that in order for Satan to move forward with his evil plan, there has to be moving and lurking in the shadows. Corrupt people, politicians, etc.

    But my heart is heavy today because the body of Christ is infected with something it’s hard for me to put my finger on. It’s causing dissension, division, and downright nastiness. First it was flat earth, then Qanon, Trump worship, etc. And it’s grown, and now conspiracy theories and paranoia are running rampant in the body of Christ.

    Now listen to me, I am not saying there are not elements of these thing that have/can have truth to them, rather…what I am saying, is that they (and the search for the most outlandish conclusion in any and all crisis that appear in the world), have become a point of obsession and paranoia in the body of Christ, that is akin to an infection.

    Take this latest crisis in Ukraine. In a matter of a few days, I have seen believers find a way to, first, make it all about America and Biden/Obama/Trump, as if the whole world revolves around us, and secondly, to take every single thing being reported…find the most opposite and outlandish conclusion and assume it must be true because “you cannot believe anything you hear”.

    I’ve seen professed Christians in the last few days, defend a man whose PROVEN fruit throughout history, has been murder, evil, disdain for liberty and freedom and Christianity. I’ve seen these same professed Christian’s get downright UGLY with each other as they argue, not at all following the instruction we are giving to discourse in love and edification.

    Again, I must mention…there may be varying levels of truth to any and all theories…that isn’t my point. My point, is that paranoia and obsession ARE NOT fruits of the spirit. Claiming discernment, is NOT a shield for either. And the ramp up in communities on FB like UNSEALED, and other that I follow, with the “visions from God” that include things like revival, and the reinstatement of America as a pillar and beacon of morality are just flat out against what prophecy teaches and shows us.

    It’s upsetting to me, because I used to find so much solace in the watchman community. Admits the chaos, where people rooted in scripture. There might have been nuanced things we disagree on, but there was love and edification, and scripture, and a non paranoid grounded view of what was happening in the world.

    Something about this last election flipped a switch in some people’s heads. There is a delusion in the body, distracting and overtaking them, keeping them from the true work God wants them preform in the last days. Please, someone tell me I’m not alone in feeling this way.

    Again, let me reiterate, it’s not about what is being believed. It is entirely possible, with evil, that the wildest conspiracy theory out there has truth to it. It’s the obsession. With America, Trump…Biden… the “elite” and whatever else. It’s unhealthy and NOT from God, and the way I know is that fruit of those in the deepest throws is dissension and vitriol. Not peace, not patience…and NOT discernment.

    I am sad about it.

    1. Ashley,

      I know EXACTLY how you feel, and I’ve tried to express that here in measured ways over the past few years. When I look across the spectrum of national and world events, there’s no doubt that we’re in the very last days, but not all of that assessment comes from viewing the obvious measures of evil. Those are no challenge whatsoever. They’re all to be expected. BUT. . . the state of the “evangelical church” is just as strong an indicator of the hour we’re living in. In most regards, I see very little positive in that body. There seems to have been an increasingly large scale “capturing” and it has coincided with the rise of the internet, and social media in particular. Part of the result is LOUSY Christian witness. Fear seems to have gripped a population that should have the least to fear.

      To be clear: Unsealed has maintained a high level of faith and integrity, and it’s one of the brighter beacons. But some others, particularly in the comment sections, seem to have gone “off the ranch”. I don’t think the Lord is one bit pleased, nor will He allow it to continue indefinitely. As I’ve said. . . It’s just another indicator of the late hour. I say these things as someone who has been a born again believer since 1970, and was brought up in one of the most conservative denominations.


    2. I know this is a bit flippant, but I thinkbuou need to stop away from the internet. Stop following sites that promote the division. Stop reading the comments on articles. Seriously, the internet tends to bring out the worst and promote rudeness and highlight the fringe "squeaky wheels". Take a step back from the noise for a bit, rest in God and His Word, and only cone back to the chaos when you are more centered on God's peace.

      Watching is good, but if what you are watching is bringing you distress, then take a break!

    3. Ashley,

      I too am sad about it and have prayed on these things for the past couple of years. It caused me to stay away from UNSEALED for a time and I abstain from platforms like FB altogether. You are not alone in your feelings and thoughts...I'm right there with you.

      The news of the world does not scare me. Autocratic threats do not deter me. Some of the comments I have read here and their attitude and tone are what bothers me and, yes, it breaks my heart. All I can really do is lead by example and pray...and I do.

      My eyes are wholly on Jesus.

      Put God First.




    4. Ashley

      If you can, objectively stand way back and see the big picture of what you are reading, seeing, and hearing. It makes it easier to understand it all.

      And, what sherrill777 said.

  43. Dear Ashley,
    I sense an eroding of true faith, too. More than ever, we as the Body of Christ MUST live 1 Cor 2:2!!

  44. (JOHN 10:10)

    I like to go directly to what I call *The Source*...

    GOD Himself or RED LETTERS,

    10 "The thief [devil/dragon/serpent/Satan]
    comes *ONLY* [emphasis mine]

    to steal
    and kill
    and destroy.

    I [Jesus/Emmanuel/Yeshua/Salvation]
    came that they may

    have life
    have it abundantly."

    RED LETTERS (John 10:10 ESV)

    I've amplified the ESV for some key terms and concepts. The enemy seeks to do what to *US*?

    1. Steal our unity through creating division
    2. Kill our faith to doubt the promise
    3. Destroy our will to run the race (and others with us)

    This is just one perspective. How many more can you see? How are you *personally* affected by this? Are you bound in Unity. Are you abiding in Love? Are you humble in spirit and contrite of heart? Where is your treasure? Are you a victim or a Victor?

    These are important questions to ask as part of a self-check or personal faith inventory. Where is your heart and to what is it bent?

    No answer is required here unless you want to. Your story is always welcomed here! But Jesus was plain about how we are to Love. None of us are perfect and we don't have to be. Jesus covered that base. That said, keep in mind we are called to,

    Come as you are not stay as you are.

    We are to be conformed to the Image of Christ Himself. That is our sanctification; an ongoing process.

    So, what was it that the crowd said of Jesus' teaching shared above?

    20 Many of them said, "He
    has a demon, and is insane;
    why listen to him?"

    21 Others said, "These are
    not the words of one who is
    oppressed by a demon. Can
    a demon open the eyes of
    the blind?"

    (John 10:20-21 ESV)

    Hmmmm, can't believe everything you hear, eh?!

    Who do you say He is?

    So even then scoffers scoffed and division ruled the hearts of men. Nothing has changed. The question is what is our response to the Gospel and to what voice will we listen?

    Division (selfish pride); or unity (loving obedience and humility?)

    I chose (and choose) the latter.

    28 Then they said to him,
    "What must we do, to be
    doing the works of God?"

    29 Jesus answered them,

    "This is the work of God,
    that you believe in him
    whom he has sent."

    RED LETTERS (John 6:28-29 ESV)

    Keep the faith!

  45. A number of years ago I was visited in a dream by a Sunday School teacher from my childhood. He came to me through a crowd of people and said three words, "Keep the Faith". Keep is an action word and Faith in Jesus is the Key. Hold on tightly to the single greatest Point in the human story timeline; Jesus. Blessings!

    1. Amen and amen.

      I am reminded of the first two verses from (Isaiah 26),

      1 In that day this song
      will be sung in the land
      of Judah:

      "We have a strong city;
      he sets up salvation
      as walls and bulwarks.

      2 Open the gates,
      that the righteous
      nation that keeps faith
      may enter in."

      Many people are unware of this fact, but the name Jesus comes from the Hebrew word, Yeshua ("ישוע") which means "salvation". So when you read the Tanakh/OT seeing Jesus everytime you read "salvation" we learn to see Christ all over the Old Testament.


      "We have a strong city;
      he sets up [Jesus] as
      walls and bulwarks."

      Indeed. Jesus IS our fortress and we are His people; the righteous nation that keeps faith!

      Blessings all, in this season of Lenten!


    2. Ashley’s view is somewhat limited. Putin is on record about the consequences of NATO expansion. Bill Clinton, et al, convinced Ukraine to give up their nukes in 1994. China will be the beneficiary when the dollar collapses. No doubt, this has been the plan all along.

  46. Now The End Begins: https://www.nowtheendbegins.com/emmanuel-macron-says-russia-bombing-ukraine-demands-creation-of-a-eu-european-army-ten-nation-confederacy/ "As Russia Bombs Ukraine, Emmanuel Macron Calls For March 10th Meeting To Discuss Creation Of A European Army With Himself As The Leader". Remark, Now The End Begins thinks that Emmanuel Macron could be the future antichrist, but I doubt it.

    1. Macron is a psychopathic demonic possesed mental case

  47. The way I look at it, imagine if Goliath of Gath went to war with Og of Bashan. Who would you cheer for to win?

    An African proverb says, "When elephants fight, it is the grass that suffers."

    My heart is with the common Ukrainian people, the common Russian people and the common people everywhere. That's who is really suffering as the result of this turf war. The rich fat cats behind the scenes are profiting greatly, as always.

    It's about time for Jesus Christ to go to war on this world system, evict the squatters and establish His Righteous Rule. Maranatha!

    1. such a beautiful comment Unknown,... TY ~ Shalom

    2. What Is War?
      Bombs That Cost $100,000 Dropping
      From A Plane That Costs $100,000,000
      Flying At A Cost Of $40,000 Per Hour
      To Kill People Living With Less Than
      $10 A Day....


    3. BINGO!!!

      "My heart is with the common Ukrainian people, the common Russian people and the common people everywhere. That's who is really suffering as the result of this turf war."

      This is the point to which I pray -- for the common people trapped and ravaged by conflict.

  48. If you depend on the main stream media, even the more conservative ones your not going to find any reasonable rationale for the incursion into Ukraine. First of all Ukraine is not a sovereign country, when the soviet union dissolved no borders were ever established. Looking at it from his (Putins) point of view he is concerned about his countrys security. Nato is trying to talk Ukraine into joining the Nato alliance and Ukraine refuses to give assurances that they will not. I dont know what weapons there are in Ukraine, maybe that will become known later if the media ever gets honest but its rumored that there were 11 bioweapon labs like the one in Wuhan China supported and financed by the UN/U.S. in Ukraine which have been destroyed. The news media in order to paint Putin as a bully are using old photos of past conflicts as propaganda to support the narrative. Its also strange that during the attack the people didnot shut their lights off in their homes and businesses which is standard practice during an invasion.

  49. Ashley, here are some facts. Joe bidens son hunter was employed by an oil company in Ukraine earning 80,000$ a month. A man with absolutely no knowledge of the field. Currently Sen. Mitt Romney, former Sen. John Kerry and house speaker Nancy Pelosi all have relatives working over there. This is not a Republican-Democrat, Conservative-Liberal fight. Its good against evil. As far as Putin is concerned he is looking out for his countrys interests. His biggest fear is that Ukraine will join the west as a UN partner and member of Nato. If China put weapons in Canada aimed at us we wouldn't tolerate it just like we didnt during the Cuban missile crisis. Whether you want to admit it or not, all these problems we face as Americans began in the last year when the incompetent fool joe biden came to power, and thats not a coincidence. Putins attack is not on the people of Ukraine, many of them support him. He is going after specific targets. Ukraine has become a playground for money laundering and human/child trafficking for the West. And thats not a conspiracy theory. He has given speeches on the topic of pedophilia and has said that many U.S. officials worship satan. Satanic ritual sacrifice of children is an epidemic around the world and its been going on in Ukraine since the early nineties, another reason for the incursion. The truth of all this will hopefully come out, this is an information war we face for the most part.

    1. Ukraine is the most corrupt country in Europe. No wonder the Bidens are so entrenched there.

    2. Van helsing,

      I would point to the article from Politico shared above -- the disinformation war on hearts and minds began years ago. Decades. We are now entering a new phase of kinetic warfare. Just as the Phoney War preceded the onslaught of the Second World War we have seen the opening chapters of the third or what some would argue is the forth.

      Will there be a going back to business as usual? I don't think so. The hooks have been set in place -- Babylon the Great is making war on itself and it's the common man that suffers. Every day families. The weak, the widow and the orphan.

      This assault is an atrocity and affront to God and humanity. It is needless save for the fear fuelled pride that lies coiled behind it. I see a serpent hiding behind Kremlin walls with armies of tanks and missiles. I hear the rattle of sabres and ICBMs in its tail. I hear it's hissing native language and that is of deception and lies.

      If Joe Biden is your enemy then you better be praying for him because the Lord Himself tells us to do so. I am personally offended at your comments and have prayed about that many, many times. I pray daily for the saints and their hearts to be in lock-step with the LORD,


      Shall I begin with my personal political views? You won't like them. Instead I preach what really matters,

      10 Your kingdom come, your
      will be done, on earth as
      it is in heaven.

      (Matthew 6:10 ESV)

    3. Van helsing

      Here is the link to the current Putin speach!


      And by the way, you are right!

    4. To Pastor Rich and everyone else!

      You have to broaden the scope of information you receive.

      Take off the blinders (in you have them on, not suggesting that you're a horse of course) and see the bigger picture.

      You don't have to be offended, saddened or discouraged, just take it all in objectively.

      Because greater is He who is in US than he who is in the world.

      We are all overcomers and God is still in control!

      And let the peace that passes understanding rule in your hearts.

    5. Thanks for that link. Since, according to the “media” saturating the “Empire of Lies” 24/7, Russia is to be blamed for the election of DJT in 2016, inflation, gas prices, cyber attacks, and whatever else they say, sans even one scintilla of evidence, one can hardly blame the man for running out of patience with the USA. The Leaders of both the USA and Ukraine do not and cannot command the respect of any serious world Leader. Surely, God has allowed this dire circumstance to occur for His own purposes.

    6. Van Helsing and Gregg are telling the truth about some serious stuff, and I am befuddled as to why that would offend you, PR. Maybe you could elaborate.

      Have you not said yourself, on many occasions no less, that the world is coming unglued here at the end? Or at least something to that effect. Why is it so shocking to admit that the US and its western allies have committed far more atrocities than Putin. Especially if we measure them by their insidious nature, whereas Russia's past sins have been more overt.

      In a way, it shares a lot of similarity with the movie Rocky III, and the fight between Rocky and the Ivan Drago. Rocky appears to be fighting with far more numerous and far less damaging punches. The Russian fights with far fewer, but far more powerful. In the end, it's the American that causes the greatest harm to his opponent. But both are guilty of engaging in the conflict.

      I would also caution Van Helsing not to misinterpret the situation. Trump would probably have done more to prevent this situation, but whether passively or actively, we will never know. And either way, both he and Biden were called to be where they were.


      P.S. Yes, for the record, I did just agree with Gregg on something.

    7. Hi Jeremy,

      I am not in agreement with Van Helsing or Gregg on a good many things (non-salvation oriented) and can deal with that no problem. VH's judgement and choice of words are not reflective of the faith nor Christlike behaviour. They were offensive to me and I have brought light to it.

      Yes, the world is coming unglued yet we're not supposed to; but that is not the issue. The issue is how we conduct ourselves individually and as a faith group to each other and impressionable visitors to this space. Most of all I wholly agree with Ashley and feel exactly the same way.

      It has NOTHING to do with good guys or bad guys for there is no good outside of God in Christ. Corruption is par for the course and definition of this place. It has everything to do with what the Spirit teaches us through James and what a Christlike dimeanour looks like...and sounds like.

      Again, I agree with Ashley.

    8. I can agree with everything you just said, but I still don't understand what offended you. Can you be more specific?


  50. Hal Turner is reporting that Zelensky has fled Ukraine and is now taking refuge at the American Embassy in Poland AND that Russia has retuned to the Gold Standard.

  51. There seems to be a lot of confusion around Putin in the Christian community which is backed up by opposing comments on article. That's because, well, it's confusing. We probably agree with with Putin's stand against globalism, wokeism and for traditional Church/family values. And yet we probably don't agree with the invasion of Ukraine, the murder of civilians (including the use of the feared Chechen Muslim ground forces) and that recurring thought that Putin could, well, be Gog... whom God will judge!

    How do we reconcile these things? We try to understand the political, historical and economic aspects that motivate Putin... but is that all there is?

    All of that is to say I personally was helped by the following message by Pastor Brandon Holthaus of Rock Harbor Church. I knew some of the historical, political and economic aspects but in his prophecy update he answered other questions by specifically going into the 'spiritual' motivation for Putin. I found it very interesting and just post it in the hope it may help you too. (It really gets on the main point at 21:05).


    PS Jeremy - Rocky IV... Sly dealt to Mr T in Rocky III :)

    1. Thanks for the reminder. I'm a little behind on my 80's movies!

      The short story is that I agree completely with what you just said. The unvarnished truth is difficult to see in EVERY sphere of life right now, and it's not just the unbelievers that are sometimes calling evil good and good evil.

      It would be easy to call Putin what he is at this moment, but it is harder to see that he is a response to the Bidens and Trumps. And they, in turn, are a response to other evolving environmental stimuli . . . leading us to conclude that nothing is concrete when it's out of context.


  52. Here is interesting Azovmena prophecy that was given to Phillip Barnett in 2007 about coming Russian invasion of Ukraine. He was a pastor in Kiev for 26 years.



  53. So much occurring related to this topic that it led me to go back to a study I did on Isaiah 17 (the destruction of Damascus) and how it may relate to the RAPTURE. Then I saw our Brother's articles at End Time Darkness Descending and was led to do a short article that I hope will be ENCOURAGING to you all, dear Brothers and Sisters:

    The Damascus Domino and the Rapture

  54. It would be nice if the dates set were to be correct but it is always a no no to set dates because if it doesn't come to pass...well, you know the drill.
