When the Archangel Speaks

“Then I saw another mighty angel coming down from heaven. He was robed in a cloud, with a rainbow above his head; his face was like the sun, and his legs were like fiery pillars. He was holding a little scroll, which lay open in his hand.

He planted his right foot on the sea and his left foot on the land, and he gave a loud shout like the roar of a lion. When he shouted, the voices of the seven thunders spoke. And when the seven thunders spoke, I was about to write; but I heard a voice from heaven say, ‘Seal up what the seven thunders have said and do not write it down.’

Then the angel I had seen standing on the sea and on the land raised his right hand to heaven. And he swore by him who lives for ever and ever, who created the heavens and all that is in them, the earth and all that is in it, and the sea and all that is in it, and said, ‘There will be no more delay! But in the days when the seventh angel is about to sound his trumpet, the mystery of God will be accomplished, just as he announced to his servants the prophets.’

Then the voice that I had heard from heaven spoke to me once more: ‘Go, take the scroll that lies open in the hand of the angel who is standing on the sea and on the land.’

So, I went to the angel and asked him to give me the little scroll. He said to me, ‘Take it and eat it. It will turn your stomach sour, but “in your mouth it will be as sweet as honey.’” I took the little scroll from the angel’s hand and ate it. It tasted as sweet as honey in my mouth, but when I had eaten it, my stomach turned sour. Then I was told, ‘You must prophesy again about many peoples, nations, languages and kings.’” (Revelation 10: 1-11)

The confusion within the current generation dwarfs any comparison to prior generations. We have so much information being presented to us that we cannot process it quickly enough to fully understand what is being said. This confusion cannot be worse then within the Christian community in respect to the unfolding prophetic word. So many prophets, teachers, pastors are proclaiming that they know the truth and that we must follow their teachings, otherwise we will live eternity in hell.

Not only are people becoming scared about what is unfolding on our earth, but they are also unwilling to challenge their faith and what they believe. So many are holding to “truths” that they were taught in church, even when evidence is presented that disputes their understanding. Instead of realizing the extend of delusion present within our world and church, they would rather fight, proclaiming their truth is correct, no matter what information is presented to the contrary.

Most of the prophetic teaching that is going on within our world has prescribed to the teaching that once you receive salvation from Jesus, that you no longer must worry about anything. You will always be saved, and you will not have to endure any tribulation, as all Christians will be raptured prior to the tribulation. It makes absolute sense for anyone to want to believe these teaching, as they tickle the ear and are exactly what everyone wants to hear. The only problem is that it does not matter what we want to hear. It only matters what the Word of God tells us.

There are two verses that every pre-tribulation rapture believer reference to proclaim their evidence of a pre-tribulation rapture. Those verses are as follows:

“Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him. According to the Lord’s word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly no precede those who have fallen asleep.

For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so, we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage one another with these words.” (1 Thessalonians 4: 13-18)

And:

“I declare to you, brothers and sisters, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed – in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality. When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: ‘Death has been swallowed up in victory.’” (1 Corinthians 15: 50-54)

When looking at these verses we can see there are some clues as to the timing of the “rapture”.

We know that it is a mystery, that occurs at the voice of the archangel, with the sound of the last trumpet, and the dead will rise first. With understanding these markers, we can see that the book of Revelation depicts exactly this within Chapter 10. The archangel comes down, speaks, the 7 thunders speak, and the mystery of God is accomplished.

Seeing how these verses work directly together we can understand that the “rapture” verses are talking about the event that occurs within Revelation 10. There is no denying this fact. Considering this information, it would be very hard to justify belief in a pre-tribulation rapture, considering the “rapture” events occur after the completion of the seven seals, and seven trumpets. There is no way to justify a pre-tribulation rapture stance after understanding that the “rapture” occurs at the midway point of the tribulation.

The other complication is the fact that the dead rise first. The assumption is that the dead rise and then immediately afterward the living are changed and brought into the clouds. This too is a misunderstanding as the Book of Revelation provides insight into who are the first ones raised at the sound of the last trumpet:

“I saw thrones on which were seated those who had been given authority to judge. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony about Jesus and because of the word of God. They had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years. (The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were ended.) this is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy are those who share in the first resurrection. The second death has no power over them, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with him for a thousand years.” (Revelation 20: 4-6)

Its difficult to grasp that the first resurrection is for those who died during the tribulation and did not relinquish their faith during their trial. We have been taught that all the dead will rise at the same time and that the living will rise at that time as well. Unfortunately, this is not what the Word of God states. The word of God is very clear: God’s mystery will be completed at the sounding of the last trumpet, when the archangel speaks, and the Tribulation Saints will be the ones raised from the dead, so that they can reign alongside Christ during the Millennial Reign.

Modern man wants to proclaim the good news and teach humanity about the loving grace of Christ. We have done this to our detriment, have forgotten that we are guilty of sin, and the judgement against our transgressions is death. We all will die. Those who do remain alive and endure until the end will witness events that mankind cannot even dream of!

“Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.” (Matthew 24: 9-14)

Dispensationalists: Are You Rightly Dividing the Word?

“Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.

Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.

And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully. The husbandman that laboureth must be first partaker of his fruits. Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things.

Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David was raised from the dead according to my gospel: Wherein I suffer trouble, as an evil doer, even unto bonds; but the word of God is not bound.

Therefore, I endure all things for the elect’s sake, that they may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory.

It is faithful saying: For if we be dead with him, we shall also live with him: If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us: If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.

Of these things put them in remembrance, charging them before the Lord that they strive not about words to no profit, but to the subverting of the hearers.

Study and shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness. And their word will eat as doth a canker: of whom is Hymenaeus and Philetus; Who concerning the truth have erred, saying that the resurrection is past already; and overthrow the faith of some.

Nevertheless, the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, let everyone that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.

But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honor, and some to dishonor.

If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honor, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.

Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.

But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strives. And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, in meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth; And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.” (2 Timothy 2: 1-26)

I rarely write from the first person view but I have been thinking deeply about the Dispensational view and about their way of reviewing Scripture and there is not other way to put it but that this way of thinking is stupid!! The only way that the Dispensational view works is to take the original language out of the equation and justify their doctrine based on only the King James interpretation of the Scripture. This is understandable considering the large majority of Christians that are holding firm to the belief that the King James version is the only accepted version of the Gospel. I understand your view to believing that the new translations are incorrect but in this case the King James version does not articulate the accurate translation of the Word. We are instructed to study the Scripture to show ourselves approved and to light a path during the time of trial, not to divide the word to justify our translation. (Psalm 119: 105)

The Dispensationsationalists want to twist the word to justify their translation, believing this brings light unto the understanding of Scripture. The basic principle behind this translation is to completely disregard the entire Old Testament and the Gospels as they were written for only the Jews and that only the portion of Scripture written for the Gentiles is relevant for the Church. I’m sorry but this way of thinking is completely stupid! There is no other way of putting it! You want me to believe that disregarding all the Old Testament Prophets and the words of our Savior Jesus Christ will fulfill the Gospel to the Church? Come on, man!! This is complete heresy if you could label the teaching!! There is no way that I am going to discount the teachings of my Savior Jesus Christ and believe that He was not talking to his followers during the end, when he depicted the coming calamities within Matthew 24.

I understand that this fits your doctrine to justify your stance of the Pre-Tribulation Rapture (which is also false and not supported by your doctrine) but how can you call yourselves a follower of Christ when you no longer follow His words?

It easy to justify your stance when you disregard the entire Old Testament and the teaching of Christ and I understand how you can have so many followers believing your bull when you speak of such good things, but how can you truly justify yourself in front of the All Mighty when the times comes, based off theses lies?

Everyone wants to hear that they will be taken prior to the Great Tribulation but this is just not true. Dispensationalists must completely twist Scripture and discount about 7/8ths of the entire Bible to justify their claims. How can any Christian support this heresy when it is so blatant? We have become so weak that we have allowed this teaching to be become mainstream to the point that if anyone challenges this teaching, they are called false prophets!

Seriously, I understand that you believe that it makes sense to discount the entire Bible to support your claims but why can you not understand the divinity of the Word and that the most important time in history is the time both the Old Testament prophets talked about, as well as, our Messiah? Do you really believe that you can justify your belief by cutting out the most important portions of Scripture and only following the Apostle Paul?

I have listened to your debates and your belief that you understand the correct translation of the Scripture, but you need to stop! Just trying to dispute the understanding that the Pre-Tribulation Rapture is a lie by stating that those that understand this truth are not dividing the Word correctly is just false! You need to stop trying to divide the Word and understand that the entire Word is relevant and needed for our Generation! We are the Generation that will witness the fulfilling of the Prophetic Word and it will not be divided!!

When you don’t divide the Word of God and you understand that the Book of Revelation is the bookend, then you understand the warning placed within the book. You must not remove or add any portion of the book, from Genesis to Revelation, to understand the writings within. The Dispensational view removes about 7/8ths of the Bible to support their claim of the Pre-Tribulation Rapture. Without removing these portions of the Bible, they have nothing to stand upon!!

“The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angels unto his servant John:

Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw.

Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.

John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before the throne;

And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the price of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us and washed us from our sings in his own blood, and hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominions for ever and ever. Amen.

Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindred of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.” (Revelation 1: 1-8)

“For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, if any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: and if any man shall take away form the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

He which testifieth these things saith, Surely, I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.” (Revelation 22: 18-21)

As Bible Prophecy Continues to Unfold, It Feels Like We Are Living in an Alternate Reality!

Follow me on this one as I know it sounds crazy, for now……….

“While I was speaking and praying confessing my sin and the sin of my people Israel and making my request to the Lord my God for his holy hill – while I was still in prayer, Gabriel, the man I had seen in the earlier vision, came to me in swift flight about the time of the evening sacrifice. He instructed me and said to me, ‘Daniel, I have now come to give you insight and understanding. As soon as you began to pray, a word went out, which I have come to tell you, for you are highly esteemed. Therefore, consider the word and understand the vision:

‘Seventy sevens’ are decreed for your people and your holy city to finish transgression, to put an end to sin, to atone for wickedness, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy and to anoint the Most Holy Place.

Know and understand this: From the time the word goes out to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until the Anointed One, the ruler, comes, there will be seven ‘sevens,’ and sixty-two ‘sevens.’ It will be built with streets and a trench, but in times of trouble. After the sixty-two ‘sevens’, the Anointed One will be put to death and will have nothing. The people of the ruler who will come will destroy the city and the sanctuary. The end will come like a flood: War will continue until the end, and desolations have been decreed. He will confirm a covenant with many for one ‘seven.’ In the middle of the ‘seven’ he will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And at the temple he will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed is poured out on him.’” (Daniel 9: 20-27)

The prophet Daniel was given information about the timing of the end of sin and for when the Anti-Christ would rise and complete the abomination that causes desolation. It is commonly accepted that the prior passage talks about the time prior to the arrival of Jesus Christ, His then arrival and death, and finally the last ‘seven’ that would bring about the end of sin. When Daniel was given this prophecy, the world would not be able to understand modern society or the events that our world would be fill with today.

Modern man is being shown a world that the entirety of human civilization would not be able to comprehend. Our society is actually considering technologies that would transform man into another being or allow mankind to live on Mars. These events are something that only the wildest imaginations would be able to create, yet we live in a time where our imaginations are becoming reality.

All over the world we are witnessing upheaval and turmoil where governments are revolting against the civilian masses and the average man is willing to kill numerous individuals for the sake of fame. We have lost our minds as a society and as our minds go, realities we never dreamed of are becoming true.

Climactic events have been building over the last couple years and everyone can feel it. We are all wondering when the next shoe will drop causing our world to drastically change. For those of us that have been diligent in our studies, we know that that time is now upon us and we are about to witness events that will cause many to tremble in fear for what is coming.

September 2019 is looking to be a significant month in the developments on the prophetic stage. When looking at prophecy unfolding we must always remember to watch Israel as they are our center piece, and everything surrounds them.

Starting on the 17th of September, the land of Israel will have the election for Prime Minister. This is not a normal event as the turmoil within the ruling elite have caused a second election as no majority government could be produced with the outcome of the first election. This turmoil is causing anxiety as there is a strong possibility that the outcomes of the election could produce the same result leaving the land of Israel without a majority government again. This possibility is causing the current Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, to become bolder in respect to international and regional relationships and with the presentation of the “Deal of the Century”.

The Trump Administration has been prolonging the release of their famed Middle East Peace Treaty and many dates have been given as to its release. The most recent date (prior to the resignation of Special Envoy Jason Greenblatt) was to release the peace plan immediately after the Israeli Elections. This would mean that whoever is elected Prime Minister of Israel (many predict Netanyahu will be elected again) would have the peace plan in place to gain majority within the Israeli government.

Many are stating that the Peace Treaty has no chance of being accepted by all parties, but one must understand that the decisions have already been made. The Middle East governments have already agreed on the economic proposal and are willing to invest billions into the new Palestinian State. The payments to not only the government of Palestine but the individuals would bring the land out of poverty and into prosperity. Plus, there have been many reports given that Gaza would be uninhabitable by 2020 unless something is done now to help sustain life. The Palestinian people have been brought to the brink of destruction and will have no choice but to accept the proposal. All parties would need to be on board with the economic aspect of the deal prior to releasing any additional aspects of the Peace Plan.

The resignation of Special Envoy Jason Greenblatt is only a further indication that the work has been completed. You must understand the political aspect of the plan to know how this will be used.

Currently, news analysts are proclaiming that the Peace Plan is dead and that the full weight of its success now rests on the shoulders of President Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner. What many don’t understand is that this whole deal has always been about the success of Jared Kushner. Everyone who works with him explains how intelligent and knowledgeable he is and how brilliantly he has worked with every aspect of this peace deal. By removing Greenblatt prior to the acceptance of the “Deal of the Century” this allowed Jared Kushner to relish in the success of the plan and to take full credit for its success.

We know that the plan has been accepted due to the meeting of 70 Nations that has been scheduled to take place in Jerusalem on September 25th. The reports of this meeting are staggering and call for the implementation of the Noahide laws (the Jewish laws implemented by Noah after the flood). Reading the syllabus of this meeting will cause anyone to stand back and rethink about their religious doctrine and reevaluate their stance on Endtime prophecy.

The meeting is bringing 70 nations together (according to rabbinic tradition 70 nations were scattered at the Tower of Babel) to participate in an animal sacrifice on the Mount of Olives that will renew Noah’s Covenant and create a World Court System based in Jerusalem. This combined with the call for the building of the 3rd Jewish Temple and the acceptance of all religions on the Temple Mount have led many to speculate that this could be the beginning of the One World Religion spoken about by the Apostle John:

“The dragon stood on the shore of the sea. And I saw a beast coming out of the sea. It had ten horns and seven heads, with ten crowns on its horns. And on each head a blasphemous name. The beast I saw resembled a leopard but had feet like those of a bear and mouth like that of a lion. The dragon gave the beast his power and his throne and great authority. One of the heads of the beast seemed to have had a fatal wound, but the fatal wound had been healed. The whole world was filled with wonder and followed the beast. People worshiped the dragon because he had given authority to the beast, and they also worshiped the beast and asked, ‘Who is like the beast? Who can wage war against it?”

The beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise its authority for forty-two months. It opened its mouth to blaspheme God, and to slander his name and his dwelling place and those who live in heaven. It was given power to wage war against God’s holy people and to conquer them. And it was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nations. All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast – all whose names have not been written in the Lamb’s book of life, the Lamb who was slain from the creation of the world.” (Revelation 13: 1-8)

The entire world will be forced to worship the beast and when you read about the Noahide Laws, it appears that they are depicting exactly this. Everyone, regardless of religious affiliation will be required to abide by the Noahide laws, just like everyone on earth abided by these laws after the Great Flood!

This would intuitively lead one to understand that for the Jewish nation to accept the Noahide Laws, they would then only accept a Messiah who is of Jewish decent. It would be hypocritical for the land of Israel to push ahead on the Noahide Laws and then accept a non-Jewish Messiah.

Hence the importance of providing the Jewish Architect of the “Deal of the Century” to receive full credit for implementing the impossible, for creating a Peace Treaty between peoples who have been fighting for thousands of years.

Let’s dig down the rabbit hole further: Why would the President of the United States be willing to create the “Deal of the Century” and then give full credit to someone else? Understanding the roles an individual plays within the prophetic word allows interpretation to become clear.

Many Christians would agree that we are living in the last days but where the differences come to play is in respect to who the individuals are who play the prominent role within prophecy. All want to be accurate with their interpretations, but we also understand that none of us have all the answers. We can only use the information we are given and through the lens of Scripture, interpret the prophecies for what we are told.

In respect to the President of the United States, we must witness his impact for what it truly has been. Modern man has never witnessed the rise of a leader like Donald Trump. We have never seen someone come out of complete obscurity and decimate his competition. We have never seen a world leader challenge laws and status quo in the fashion we have witnessed with President Trump. We can all agree that he has turned the entire world upside down and none of us know what will happen next.

The one thing that we know for sure is that the American Christian populous loves President Trump. The loyalty provided by Christians is unwavering and regardless of any derogatory actions, their faith is steadfast. Many even regard him as a god or a prophet of god.

The following that President Trump has created is something to marvel. Few leaders throughout history have been able to impact the world stage in such a dramatic and substantial way, let alone in such a short amount of time. Considering President Trump is over 70 years old, the importance of continuing his legacy is paramount within the Trump Dynasty. Understanding that a leader of this caliber would not relinquish the most powerful office in the history of mankind is something we must evaluation and the key may be in the rise of Jared Kushner.

Getting the Jewish people to follow a non-Jew after the implementation of the Noahide Laws would be very difficult but would require someone of great stature within the Jewish community to provide backing into this belief. Considering the actions of the False Prophet, this would be consistent with what is developing right before our eyes:

“Then I saw a second beast, coming out of the earth. It had two horns like a lamb, but it spoke like a dragon. It exercised all the authority of the first beast on its behalf and made the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose fatal wound had been healed. And it performed great signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven to the earth in full view of the people. Because of the signs it was given power to perform on behalf of the first beast, it deceived the inhabitants of the earth. It ordered them to set up an image in honor of the beast who was wounded by the sword and yet lived.

The second beast was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that the image could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed. It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name.

This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. That number is 666.” (Revelation 13: 11-18)

The rise of the Second Beast of Revelation, the False Prophet, is what implements the Mark of the Beast. We can see that the power from the First Beast is given to the Second and the Second Beast creates an image of the First Beast that all must worship. This would mean that the First Beast, the Antichrist, would be worshiped by all and its implementation would be done by the Second.

Considering the actions of President Trump toward Israel and the Christian church many are believing that he was given his power and authority by God to bring about events that would cause the arrival of the Messiah. This sounds like science fiction, but this is actually what is going around in Christian and Jewish circles. Many believe that Donald Trump is causing the prophetic events to become delayed in America while the rest of the world is preparing for the Antichrist. Few will even consider that President Trump is anything less than a tool being used by God to prepare the Church for the Rapture.

The only way that this would work is if the “Deal of the Century” fails under Donald Trump. What we must remember is that the Antichrist is the one that confirms the Peace Treaty in the Middle East and right now that treaty is the “Deal of the Century”. From all indications, the treaty will succeed, which would mean there are two individuals involved in the confirming of the treaty, President Donald Trump and Jared Kushner. Understanding the importance of President Trump legacy would lead many to believe his family would need to rise to power when President Trump’s time has expired.

From a political standpoint, the logistics of raising the status of Jared Kushner is something the Trump family is calculating. Right now, those within the administration hold Jared with high regard but those outside of that circle consider him less than. With the implementation of the “Deal of the Century” the world would consider Jared Kushner a leader on the global stage and elevate his status and notoriety. This is where the considered play to place Jared Kushner into American politics may take a wild turn.

There has been speculation that President Trump may be willing to replace Vice President Mike Pence with someone of more significant stature as the impact from Pence has been insignificant. We also know that President Trump has seen significant turnover within his administration and considers many of his appointees as inadequate for the positions. Continuing with this logic, we also understand that President Trump relies on Jared Kushner for everything and considers him his right hand. It would only make logical sense to nominate Jared Kushner for Vice President after his success implementing the “Deal of the Century”.

From a prophetic standpoint, this is only verified within the existence of the record $1.8 Billion deal Jared Kushner completed when his family purchased 666 Fifth Avenue in Manhattan.

Considering this outcome as a possibility is something of insanity but during this prophetic time, we cannot discount any outcome. We are witnessing events that would only be considered science fiction a few years ago. All that we do know, is that if the “Deal of the Century” completes its objective, we will witness a truly historic and prophetic event. We also must understand that anyone involved with this treaty will play a larger role within prophecy. We cannot be blind as we have been warned about this exact event and we have been told exactly what will happen to our world when the truth becomes stranger than science fiction!

“As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately. ‘Tell us,’ they said, ‘when will this happen, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?’

Jesus answered: ‘Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many. You will hear of wars and rumors of wars but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains.

Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.

So, when you see standing in the holy place ‘the abomination that causes desolation,’ spoken of through the prophet Daniel – let the reader understand – then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. Let no one on the housetop go down to take anything out of the house. Let no one in the field go back to get their cloak. How dreadful it will be in those days for pregnant women and nursing mothers! Pray that your flight will not take place in winter or on the Sabbath. For then there will be great distress unequaled from the beginning of the world until now – and never to be equaled again.

If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive, but for the sake of the elect those days will be shorted. At that time if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Messiah!’ or, ‘There he is!’ do not believe it. For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, it possible, even the elect. See, I have told you ahead of time.

So, if anyone tells you, ‘There he is, out in the wilderness,’ do not go out; or, ‘Here he is, in the inner rooms,’ do not believe it. For as lightening that comes from the east is visible even in the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. Wherever there is a carcass, there the vultures will gather.

Immediately after the distress of those days ‘the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from the sky, and the heavenly bodies will be shaken.’

Then will appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven. And then all the peoples of the earth will mourn when they see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory. And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.

Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near. Even so, when you see all these things, you know that it is near, right at the door. Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.” (Matthew 24: 3-35)

The Lord’s Sign: Are Signs in the Sun, Moon and Stars Indicating the Return of Our Savior?

It is no secret that we are witnessing global events that mimic the prophetic word explained in the Bible.  Many teachers are proclaiming that the Day of the Lord is at hand and that we must repent.  They reference events happening in the Middle East and Jerusalem as prophetic, stating that the ancient prophecies of Isaiah and Ezekiel are coming to pass.  This is becoming main-stream as major news networks are proclaiming that prophecy is being fulfilled.

This leads to the question as to what events or signs must be seen prior to the Day of the Lord? The most popular teaching is that the Rapture must occur prior to the end of time.  This teaching is leading the majority of Christians to watch for the disappearance of millions of people, from all over the world, as the event that will mark the coming of our Lord.

Scripture tells of many signs that the final generation must watch for. The sun will turn dark, the moon to red, the stars will fall from the sky; these are all events that many books have been published about and have created wonder within the Church.

It appears that these heavenly events are becoming common place.  The last two Blood Moons that occurred (on January 31st and March 31st 2018) were also Super Blue Blood Moons, with the one in January situated over the Holy Land. People are watching the skies for signs, as this is exactly what Scripture has told the Church to do: “There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea” (Luke 21: 25 NIV).

We have already witnessed the Four Blood Moons that occurred in 2014 and 2015 joined with the Star of Bethlehem in the fall of 2015.  This combined with the Great American Eclipse in August 2017 and the Revelation 12 Sign in September 2017, the world is witnessing numerous astrological events that need to be taken seriously.

Just recently, the Total Lunar Eclipse that occurs on July 27th 2018 is catching the attention of this generation. This Lunar Eclipse will be the longest of this century lasting one hour and forty-three minutes or 103 minutes. This Total Lunar Eclipse will cause the Full Moon to turn blood red as the Earth passes between the Sun and Moon, and will be visible primarily over the Middle East. Considering the recent volcanic activity, the color of the moon may be a darker red as the particles in the sky will change its color. This Total Lunar Eclipse will also be made more spectacular considering the Earth will be in its farthest location from the Sun when the Eclipse occurs.

When looking at Scripture, this generation has been made aware of the following verse:

“In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy. I will show wonders in the heaven above and signs on the earth below, blood and fire and billows of smoke. The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord. And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” (Acts 2: 17-21 NIV)

Many have spoken stating that the Day of the Lord is coming and that these signs are indicating that His day has arrived.  This has been said so much that many are becoming deaf to its message and no longer believe the events are coming to pass.  They dismiss these happenings as normal and nothing to be concerned about.  What if they were wrong?

This Lunar Eclipse that occurs on July 27th 2018 is combined with other events that may indicate that this Eclipse is not normal.  Combined with the Earth being it’s farthest from the Sun, this eclipse also causes a Conjunction with a Mars Opposition Eclipse in Capricorn. What this means is that the Sun, Earth, Moon and Mars all line up, and when this Total Lunar Eclipse occurs, it will also cause an Eclipse on both Earth and Mars. This is only a partial eclipse (as only full eclipses are possible on Earth) but Mars will be in complete Opposition with the Earth and Sun on this day. This is only amplified by the fact that Mars will be at its closest location to the Sun since 2003 when it broke a 60,000 year record that will not be broken again until year 2287.

The location of Mars, combined with the Lunar Eclipse will make the red planet shine brightly in the night sky. There is also one additional aspect of this Opposition that makes what is happening even more complex.  Mars will be starting its retrograde motion. What this means is that when Mars is in Retrograde, it will appear to be moving backwards.

In theory, when there is a Total Lunar Eclipse with Mars in Conjunction with the Earth and Sun, if the light from the Sun was blocked out, Mars would be the brightest light in the nighttime sky.  This would be difficult considering that to block out the Sun would mean that the Sun would have to turn black.

This is where the location of the Hawaii volcano plays a substantial role.  When looking at the globe, the location of Hawaii is almost the exact opposite side as where the Lunar Eclipse will occur. When the eclipse occurs over the Middle East, Hawaii will be facing the Sun. Continuing with this logic, if there is a major eruption that occurs in Hawaii, the volcanic ash would cause the sky to turn dark as no sunlight would be able to penetrate the volcanic ash.  The combination of a Total Lunar Eclipse and volcanic eruption would then cause the Sun to turn dark and the Moon to turn red at the same time!

This leads to an important sign hidden within Scripture, the Lord’s Sign.  This Lord’s Sign is called The Stairway of Ahaz and was spoken about twice in Scripture:

“Then the word of the Lord came to Isaiah: ‘Go and tell Hezekiah, ‘This is what the Lord, the God of your father David, says: I have heard your prayer and seen your tears; I will add fifteen years to your life. And I will deliver you and this city from the hand of the King of Assyria. I will defend this city. ‘This is the Lord’s sign to you that the Lord will do what he has promised: I will make the shadow cast by the sun go back the ten steps it has gone down on the stairway of Ahaz.’ So the sunlight went back the ten steps it had gone down.” (Isaiah 38: 4-8 NIV)

“Hezekiah had asked Isaiah, ‘What will be the sign that the Lord will heal me and that I will go to the temple of the Lord on the third day from now?’ Isaiah answered, ‘This is the Lord’s sign to you that the Lord will do what he has promised: Shall the shadow go forward ten steps, or shall it go back ten steps?’ ‘It is a simple matter for the shadow to go forward ten steps,’ said Hezekiah. ‘Rather, have it go back ten steps.’ Then the prophet Isaiah called upon the Lord, and the Lord made the shadow go back the ten steps it had gone down on the stairway of Ahaz.” (2 Kings 20: 9-11)

In both of these instances, the light in the sky moved backward, causing the shadow to move the opposite direction.  This is described by Isaiah as the Lord’s Sign, which He will do as He has promised.  God has promised His return and the redemption of His people. Believers have been guaranteed that His prophetic promises will be kept and the Stairway of Ahaz is the sign of His promise.

If all of these events are fulfilled, the Sun will be blacked out by the volcanic ash, the Moon will turn red from the Total Lunar Eclipse and the shadow will move backward as Mars will be the brightest light in the sky, moving backward.  These events cannot be recreated or duplicated as astrological events cannot be impacted by mankind.  Only a divine hand can cause all of these events to occur at the exact same time, causing the Stairway to Ahaz!

The world is waiting for our Savior’s return.  This has been spoken about by the prophets of old, as well as, modern teachers.  His message has been spread across the entire globe and now astrological events are taking place that are described in the Holy Scripture. It is just a matter of time before the entire world will know the truth and that His return is real.  If the Stairway to Ahaz is a sign from heaven, this will be the summer that generations will remember forever.

Are Prophetic Signs in the Heaven Indicating the Revealing of God’s Mystery?

“You shall count off seven Sabbaths of years, seven times seven years; and there shall be to you the days of seven Sabbaths of years, even forty-nine years. Then you shall sound the loud trumpet on the tenth day of the seventh month. On the Day of Atonement you shall sound the trumpet throughout all your land. You shall make the fiftieth year holy, and proclaim liberty throughout the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a jubilee to you; and each of you shall return to his own property, and each of you shall return to his family.” (Leviticus 25: 8-10)

God has provided instruction on exactly what will come to pass and what mankind needs to do to fulfill its obligation to their creator. The Jewish people have been ritually partaking in appointed Holidays that signify the prophetic events that were prophesied to be completed. This ritualistic participation is widely known to be “rehearsals” for the prophetic event that will pass. Many have heard of the Shemitah and its importance in respect to God’s instruction toward debt and inheritance and even less have evaluated the year of the Jubilee that occurs every 50 years.

The importance of these years can be seen throughout history. For example, the most recent two Jubilee years were during the years of 1917-18 and 1967-68, leaving the 2017-18 year as the newest Jubilee year. Many miss this interpretation as they anticipate the interval being every 7 years instead of considering the additional 50th year added to the equation. With this in mind, every 50 years constitutes the important year that debt is supposed to be eliminated and any property lost during the prior 49 years is to be returned to the previous owner. The criteria on how to do such transfer is laid out in the 25th chapter of Leviticus.

History has proven to mankind that if God instructs man to act, and they don’t, God will make mankind act. This is true considering the years of 1917-18 and 1967-68. On November 2, 1917 the Balfour Declaration was signed allowing the creations of an Israeli state within the land of Palestine. This declaration allowed for the creation of the State of Israel. Coincidentally, on June 5th 1967 the Six-Day War occurred. During this war, Israel defeated Egypt, Syria and Jordan in six days while inheriting East Jerusalem in the process. In both instances, the outcome is the return of property to its rightful owner, Israel. The next Jubilee year (Jewish year 5777) of 2017-18 represents the 50th anniversary of the unification of Jerusalem and the 100 Anniversary of the re-institution of the Jewish homeland.

These anniversary dates are very important to evaluate considering the rare alignment of other dates that occur within the Jubilee year of 2017-18. One such occurrence happens over the skies of the Unites States on August 21st 2017. During that day, the United States will experience a very unique solar eclipse that touches every state in the continental United States, and no other country. This has only happened one other time in history and that was in 1776. To make things more intriguing, the United States will experience another solar eclipse 7 years later. Only this solar eclipse will start in the southwest United States and head converse to the prior eclipse, thus creating a large X over the USA. Currently, the prophetic importance of this 7 year period of time is unknown but the most recognized 7 year period found within the Bible is the Great Tribulation.

Additionally, the prophetic sign of Revelation 12 will be see in the heavens on September 23rd 2017. We are told of a woman who is with child, about ready to give birth, who has a crown of 10 stars, clothed by the Sun with the Moon at her feet. This prophetic sign will be seen within the Virgo Constellation on September 23rd 2017 (for additional information…..Blood Moons and the Solar Eclipse of 2017).

Further evaluation of the association of the August 21st and September 23rd dates leads us to the book of Leviticus. Taking in consideration that the Church is regarded as the Bride of Christ, the verses found within Leviticus are very enlightening. Within chapter 12 are instructions on how women should purify their bodies after giving birth. Considering the Sign in Revelation 12 is of a woman giving birth we must know the cleansing process.

This instruction from God depicts a 33 day period that is required for a women to cleanse their body, after giving birth, prior to entering Solomon’s Temple. An additional 7 days are added when a male child is conceived. According to Revelation 12, we know that the woman will have a male child and the 40 days of cleansing will be needed. There are 33 days that separate the dates of August 21st and September 23rd. When adding the additional 7 days we come to September 30th, which is the Day of Atonement according to the Jewish calendar. The Day of Atonement is the day the Jewish High Priest would conduct the sacrifice to cleanse the Jewish people of their sins.

In other words September 30th 2017 is significant as it also represents the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah (also known as the Day of Atonement). The year of God’s blessing (Jubilee year) comes to an end and the prophetic sign found within Revelation 12 appears 7 days prior to the end of the year! Combined with the teachings found within Leviticus 12:1, the Jewish year of 5778 will be a very important year!

To add more mystery to the equation, September 23rd 2017 represents the 70 year anniversary of the creation of the State of Israel. Scripture indicates that all the prophetic signs will be witnessed by one generation, and Scripture also indicates that a generation is 70 years. God waited until the completion of the entire 70 years prior to revealing his sign in Heaven!

God is making his presence known to all who are willing to listen. We must watch and while we watch we must be willing to see. According to Scripture, all will be revealed. As so many events are unfolding around the world, combined with the prophetic signs in Heaven, it can be assumed that mankind is currently witnessing the unfolding of God’s Great Mystery!

Please continue to watch and pray. Things are about to get very interesting!

Daniel’s 70th Week Has Been Viewed as the Most Important in History. Has That Time Come?

Donald Trump and the 70 weeks of Daniel

“Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.” Daniel 9:24

Throughout the entire Bible, God uses numbers to help man understand important events.  The truth is the same when looking at Bible Prophecy.  Many understand the use of 666 for the Mark of the Beast and 7 as a holy number (as the universe was created in 7 days).  Their understanding of numerology ends with this climax being the extent of understanding.

This numerical knowledge does not limit man to only Biblical interpretation but may also be present within today’s world.  Man knows that as events unfold around the world, and is left with little understanding of what is truth.  Mankind has lost his understanding to a world filled with misdirection and deceit.  Considering a large population regards understanding as “Fake News”, man is left with little to know credible answers.  If man cannot understand this difference, then how are they going to know when something important is happening?

What if God is trying to communicate with mankind through the use of numbers?  What if there were some obvious numbers that can be evaluated to see if something was important or just fictitious.

To help bring understanding, the number 70 must be reviewed.  One cannot study Bible Prophecy without reviewing Daniel’s 70 weeks.  Many Scholars consider Daniel’s 70 weeks as a timeline until the beginning of the Tribulation period. The first 69 weeks came to a conclusion with the arrival of Jesus and the final week is to happen after the “Church Age” is completed.  The length of gap present between the 69 and 70th week is unknown but scholars believe that the 70th week is the prophetic time of the “Great Tribulation”.

This is just one example but it illustrates the importance of the number 70. Considering the importance of 7 and 70 within Scripture, any event associated with the numbers 7 or 70 must be reviewed.  .  It is no secret that God has used the number 7 to get man’s attention throughout history.

One simple event to review is that President Donald Trump was 70 years old when he was inaugurated into the Presidency.  To be EXACT, Donald Trump was 70 years, 7 months and 7 days old during his first day as President of the United States.

Combined with the recent Airstrike on Syria on April 6th 2017, we find even more associated events.  The first is that this Airstrike happened on the 77th day of Donald Trump’s Presidency.  Again, the number 7 appears bringing importance to an event that affects the entire Globe.

Another important number associated to the Airstrike on Syria is 100.  The Airstrike also marked the 100 year anniversary of the United States entering World War 1. This must leave mankind wondering, if those who refuse to understand history, are doomed to repeat it?

This becomes even more important when you understand the actions conducted on April 6th 2017 may be the catalyst to move the World into another World War.

We now see a US Navy Strike Team on their way to North Korea while China sends 150,000 troops to its boarder. Vladimir Putin has already warned the United States that a strike against Syria is a strike against Russia.  Israel has told the UN about their uneasiness with Iranian troops inside Syria next to their boarder.  The stage is set for a massive escalation unlike any seen in the history of mankind.

Blood Moons and the Solar Eclipse of 2017

“Even on my servants, both men and women. I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy.  I will show wonders in the heavens above and signs on the earth below, blood and fire and billows of smoke. The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord. And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” (Acts 2: 18-21 NIV)

We have been warned of a time that depicts the end of the current age and the coming of the Messiah.  We were warned about what to watch for and even told that we would be blessed if we watched.  Did we?  Are we prepared for what is coming?  That is the only question to ask!

We are instructed to look up as our redemption draws close.  Look up to what?  What are we suppose to see?  If it was only that simple……

What if it was that simple?  No crazy interpretation needed. Just to look up and watch for the signs.  We are told that the sun would turn dark and the moon would turn red.  What does that mean?

Many believe that the Blood Moons that happened in 2014 and 2015 are the signs depicted according to Biblical prophecy.  The reason is that every one of these Blood Moons landed on a Jewish Holiday.  Not only did they fall on Jewish holidays but they fell on the holidays that have not had their prophecies fulfilled.  Let me explain. Every Jewish Holiday is a “dress rehearsal” for a prophecy promised from God to the Jewish people.  They are organized according to spring feasts and fall feasts.  Most Biblical Scholars believe that the spring feasts have been completed while the fall have yet to pass.  The significance of the Blood Moons is that they fell on the fall feasts that have yet to pass!

That may explain the moon turning to blood but it does not explain the sun turning dark. Plus the sun turns dark and has eclipses all the time. How can this event be significant?

When an eclipse occurs, only a portion of the Globe is able to see the total eclipse.  Most of the time it is over the ocean, so not much land is covered.  On August 21st 2017, there will be an eclipse that occurs over the United States and every square inch of America will see the eclipse.  This is a very rare event as this is the first time that an eclipse hits only the USA, and no other country, since 1776. To make things even more outlandish, the same thing happens 7 years later!  Yes in 2024, there is another solar eclipse that covers no other country but the United States of America!

After looking closer to the path of the eclipses, we are provided with even further insight into what may be planned.  The solar eclipse that occurs in 2017 moves from Oregon to South Carolina making a diagonal line.  The solar eclipse that occurs in 2024 moves with an opposite diagonal swath, creating a Large X over the USA!

Considering Scripture tells us about a period of 7 years that will be marked as like no other time before or after, we need to be aware of this coming 7 year period.  We are told that this time will be hard and many will lose their way.  We are told to make sure that no one deceives us.  We were told but have we listened? Have we trained and prepared for what is coming?

Hopefully this is completed wrong and there is nothing about this time that we need to worry about.  There must be other signs in the heaven and if this is the Great Tribulation, then there must be others signs present.

Yet, there is another sign that seems to fit.  Just one minor sign that no one has been able to figure out, until now.  It depicts the fulfillment of Revelation 12 1-2.

“A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head. She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth.”

On September 23, 2017, this sign appears in the constellation of Virgo. Virgo (The Virgin) has had Jupiter (King Planet) within her “womb” for over 9 months and Jupiter now exits out of her womb on this date.  Also the moon is near her feet, the sun is over her left shoulder, while the constellation Leo (9 stars) is above her head joined with Mercury, Mars and Venus (9 + 3 = 12)

If we look at these signs literally, and place them within Scripture, they fit.  No fancy interpretation needed.  It’s that simple!

After the realization of what this “could” mean, we need to see if there are any other signs around us.  We need to prepare mentally and spiritually for what may be headed our way.  We must be diligent in all that we do so that we may be prepared for when the Great Day of the Lord comes!

Remain Strong and May God Guide You on Your Journey!
