Update Apr/May 2013
It is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT THAT YOU READ THE BLOGS FROM JANUARY 2013, EITHER BEFORE OR AFTER READING THIS. Thank you. Also please tell a friend. People need to know what is happening, as their lives may depend on it.
Many events have been happening, relating to the latter day times of the last days that we are now in.
Since we know beyond any doubt there will be a Russian/Arab invasion of Israel during the early part of the Tribulation, which is near, we should look for signs that this event could be very close.
Iran is building a nuclear bomb said to be 20 times bigger than what hit Japan. Its purpose is to be used to destroy Israel, which is only about the size of New Jersey. Latest reports are that they are nearing 90% of being ready, which is the red line that Israel has drawn.
We note that the US president went to Israel in March, 2013. One might wonder why?
Speculation–if Israel wanted to let the president know how and when they intended to strike Iran, could they do it by any form of communications? As we understand, no communications that are transmitted are totally secure. The only sure way to communicate would be directly, face to face, in a secure location, such as Israel has.
As we understand, Israel was given a green light through a public statement that said, ISRAEL HAS THE RIGHT TO DEFEND ITSELF. It is very possible that the US president now knows how Israel is going to strike Iran, but probably does not know the exact date. However, I would expect Israel has set a date.
Israel can be expected to strike in such a way and through such a method that it will catch the world by surprise. We can expect that Russia with all of its spy equipment will not know it is coming until it actually does, but it is possible Israeli technology may temporarily blind their equipment for a short time. Will Israel, if they attack Iran in such a way as to neutralize their weapons of mass destruction, succeed? I believe, yes, because the Bible gives no indication that Israel will be struck solely by Iran with such a weapon. Rather, Iran and many other nations will be with Russia in a giant attack against Israel, after the Rapture occurs. Perhaps, because Israel may succeed in defending themselves by neutralizing Iran’s weapon, much of the world can be expected to condemn tiny Israel and the Jewish people, and approve of the combined Russian/Arab invasion of Israel soon after the Rapture happens and the Tribulation begins. However, Ezekiel 38 and 39, which gives much info on this (what we call WW3), makes it clear that the invasion will succeed against Israel at first, and Israel will be brought to their knees very fast. However, when Israel cries out to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in desperation, God hears them and speedily destroys the huge military invasion. Only 1 in 6 of the Russian invasion forces are left alive. It happens quickly and is much like God did to those that came against Israel in the Old Testament (the Tanakh)and dared to challenge God. As a result, many will come to Messiah afterward, through the teaching of 144,000 male, virgin Jews.
When will Israel strike Iran? We do not know, but we believe it will be soon—perhaps sometime in 2013 or 2014. While the US is greatly downsizing its military, Russia is doing the opposite which sets the stage for the great war described in the Revelation (the red horse–Rev 6:3,4). As a result of that war, one out of every 4 people on earth will die. This is covered more in the January blog.
Watch Israel. This is the key. If you are not ready to meet Jesus when He comes to rapture His church—you will have made a very tragic mistake, one that could cause you to perish for eternity. The lukewarm Christians will be left behind. Whether or not you believe these things will happen changes nothing. The Bible’s prophecies have never failed, no, not one.
How can you know the Bible is true? Look at Israel. Israel’s rebirth on May 14, 1948, happened exactly the way the Bible said it would be. Their victory after victory against many Arab and Muslim attacks since that time is proof the Bible is the Word of God. Even the huge Russian/Arab invasion of Israel will be defeated; however, not by Israel, but by God. Indeed, all of the wars Israel has won against impossible odds, since 1948, were because God was with them. No invasion force will ever destroy Israel again; no, not even at Armageddon, which is when Jesus actually returns to this earth in power and great glory. But before then, the Antichrist will be in Israel, and all the world must take his mark (666) and worship the image of the Antichrist. All that refuse can be expected to be brutally tortured and killed by beheading, except for a few God will protect to repopulate the earth after Armageddon, when Jesus the Messiah, Son of David, the only begotten Son of God will reign as King of kings and Lord of lords in Jerusalem during the Millennium. Life is a test to see if you will believe the Bible or not. It is not those that hear the Word of God that will be justified, but those that DO the Word of God–ref Ja 1:22.
The Bible states that at the time of the Rapture, very few people will even believe there will be a Rapture, and of those that do, many that thought they would be taken will not be—because they were not ready. They were only lukewarm Christians. Friend, the time is at hand, it is very near. Fear God, and depart from evil. Repent and believe the Gospel. Put your trust totally in Jesus the Messiah, and repent and be baptized as God’s Word commands.
Update January 2013
Right Now and Coming Soon. Where Are We In Time?
It is recommended you read the homepage regarding the Signs of the Times, Rapture,
Tribulation, Armageddon, and Jesus Returns before reading what is to follow here.
About six times in the New Testament, God commands those that are born again to know or understand the times we are now in. It also tells that the unsaved and disobedient will not understand.
The Bible gives app. 365 signs of the latter day times.
Israel's rebirth was the first sign showing that we had entered the latter days of the last days.
Then God’s Word reveals app. 365 prophecies would be fulfilled that would lead up to the Rapture of God’s people.
Then the Antichrist would come forth, and the horrible Tribulation would follow. Immediately after, Armageddon would explode, Jesus would return and the elect would be gathered. Jesus said a generation would not pass till all this is fulfilled. As of now, all 365 prophecies are nearly fulfilled.
Here are just a few of these prophecies. You judge—have they been fulfilled?
Israel would regain the city of Jerusalem.
There would be a change in weather patterns worldwide.
There would be an increase in violence and evil worldwide.
In the church, there would be a lack of preaching on sin, repentance, the judgments, hell and the lake of fire, the narrow way, obedience to God’s Word and His commandments, and prophecy showing Jesus was about to return for His people.
The preaching would be tailored to suit what people wanted to hear—positive things that make people feel good.
The Bible also reveals one of the last signs would be a spiritual shaking that would take place which would cause many Christians to fall, and the world also would turn away from God and His Word.
Included in the last prophecies before the Rapture, there would be a great increase and acceptance of alternate lifestyles, and much of the world would be against tiny Israel.
In addition, it would be as the days of Noah and Lot—sin and wickedness would abound, and only a very few would understand the judgment and wrath of Christ was about to come.
All these final signs are proof the Rapture is on our doorstep. A few, such as Billy Graham, John Hagee, Hal Lindsey, and this website are trying to warn people; but as it is written, few are listening.
What Is Next? What Can We Expect In The Next Few Months?
Watch Israel. This is the key.
We understand Iran is seeking to build a bomb about 20 times bigger than what hit Japan, and they have every intention to use it. We expect they may use every strategy possible, perhaps meaningless talks or other methods to give them time to complete a bomb. All they need is time, and Israel knows this.
There is no indication in the Bible that Iran will succeed. Does this mean Israel will in some way neutralize Iran’s efforts?
Expect the world and UN to turn against Israel more and more.
We understand that Russia has stated an attack against Iran is the same as an attack against them.
We understand Russia is building up their military at an incredible pace, while the US is downsizing its military. Russia is reportedly spending $650 billion. Reportedly, 1000 helicopters and subs carrying nuclear missiles are included.
Why do the Arabs hate Israel? Read the article regarding Ishmael and Isaac.
Why does much of the world hate Israel? It is written: Mt 10:22-Ye shall be hated of all men for My name’s sake. Mt 24:9–ye shall be hated of all nations for My name’s sake.
Born again Christians love the Jews. Do you?
Soon The Rapture Will Come
Then the man of sin, which is called Antichrist (the prince, the ruler, etc.) comes forth–ref Rev 6:2; Dan 9:26,27. He confirms an agreement for 7 years (between Israel and others). This begins the Tribulation–Dan 9:27.
144,000 male, virgin Jews are sealed. These shall evangelize what is left of the world during the first part of the Tribulation, following what we call WW3.
Soon after the covenant or agreement is confirmed, God brings Russia, Iran and other nations against tiny Israel with a huge military force, because Israel has turned away from God–ref Ezek 38, 39; Rev 6:4. The attack comes like a storm from all directions in a land, air and sea assault.
The US does not come to Israel’s aid. No one comes to their aid.
Israel is being crushed. Many Jews are killed.
They have no where to turn. They are stubborn and will not call upon the Lord. As their defeat seems imminent, finally, after many Jews are already dead, they cry out to the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. God responds. The biggest military force and most advanced military weapons ever assembled are no match for the LORD. Through a great shaking (earthquakes), plus the invading forces turning against themselves, diseases, great hailstones, fire and brimstone, the Russian forces and their allies are destroyed speedily. Only 1 in 6 are left alive. They die upon the mountains of Israel and the open field.
But this is only the beginning. Much of Russia (Magog) and the US (those that dwell carelessly in the isles) shall also be destroyed. It appears there is a nuclear exchange that lasts 4 hours of the day and 4 hours of the night. When the smoke clears and as a result of what has happened, 1 out of every 4 people on earth are dead. If you are in the US or Russia, chances are you will be among them.
What is terrifying is all of those that die (one quarter of the world’s population)—100% go to hell. For it is written, DEATH, AND HELL FOLLOWED WITH HIM–Rev 6:8. How can this be? This is the answer. The Rapture has taken the believers. Those left are all unbelievers. They would not allow God to reign over them. They would not let God work in them and conform them to the image of Christ. They are left behind. They just can’t believe the Scriptures as written, because their thoughts from the devil oppose the truth.
What follows are massive famines, and diseases are out of control. All green grass on earth is gone. One third of the trees are destroyed. There is much more.
For the people left alive, 144,000 male, virgin Jews will evangelize the world. Many will come to Christ, but for most that do, they will ultimately be martyred for their faith by decapitation. Regretfully, those in places like the US, Russia, and many Arab nations, just to mention some, will have no opportunity to come to Christ, as they will be part of the app. one and a half billion that will die as a result of this very short war.
Why Does God Do This?
The almost instant destruction by God of the forces that invade Israel is such that many people throughout the whole world will recognize that Jesus Christ is Lord. Thus, Jesus is magnified and known in the eyes of many nations. There follows a great revival as God’s holy name is made known in Israel, and the heathen shall know that Jesus is Lord, the Holy One in Israel–ref Ezek 39:7.
I suspect if the signs of the times that have already happened and the things that are taking place right now before your eyes don’t persuade you to repent—nothing will, and you are doomed to spend eternity in the lake of fire. We cannot say the Rapture will happen this year or even next year. However, the signs of the times indicate very strongly that it could be as soon as this year or soon after. Are you ready?
Some may say they will wait till the 11th hour to repent. The 11th hour is here now, but do you recognize it?
Will much of what has been said here be disputed by the unbelievers, the lukewarm, the unlearned, and those not filled with the love of Christ? It hast to be.
Was the flood coming to destroy the earth disputed?
Was Sodom and Gomorrah's destruction disputed and not believed?
It would be a good idea for you to make a copy of the homepage, so you will know what is going to happen as you see these things coming to pass. Because if you do not, when these things do happen, you may cry out and say, “I wish I knew what is coming next!”—but this website will have been shut down.
There is no compromise, if you are going to follow Christ. Compromisers are lukewarm, and these are not raptured. From this moment on, you can never say, “I never knew these things.” If you have problems believing God’s Word, examine yourself and repent, so that you might believe–ref Mt 21:32.
Jn 14:29–And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe.
Jn 20:31–But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through His name.
Update March 21, 2012
Absolutely amazing! Prophecy after prophecy has been fulfilled and is being fulfilled even as this is being written; yet people refuse to believe the Bible is true.
It was recently said of the “Me Gen” (those born between 1981-2000) that the three things these 12 to 31 year olds are most concerned about are money, fame, and image. Extremely self-centered, their heads are often buried in their hand-held devices. Staying connected is so important to many, but connecting with God is lacking.
It is called the “me” generation, and it has been stated that religion is not part of their lives. As we understand, Franklin Graham has found that the youth of this generation are so biblically illiterate, that in his crusades he has to begin with the very basics, because they don’t seem to know who Jesus is and what He did.
This generation was prophesied to be a time in which deceit shall prosper. People believe all sorts of lies, but do not believe the truth of the Bible, even though it has been provento be true. Throughout history, people have spent their whole lives trying to prove the Bible is not true. None has ever succeeded. So they make up false stories about the Bible and persuade those with little Bible knowledge to believe their deceit.
God offers people eternal life, but demands that a person repents and obeys the Gospel. People love their own lives the way they are and do not want to forsake all now, in order to inherit eternal joy and happiness through Jesus Christ later. So many curse His name. Why don’t they curse the names of other so-called gods? Because these are no gods at all; but Jesus is alive and sits on the right hand of God the father in heaven right now.
Welcome to the “me” generation. This generation, we believe, shall enter the tribulation and see the most evil being that will ever live on this planet—that is, the antichrist; and the number of his name is 666. He is the actual son of Satan. He will be far more intelligent than anyone on this earth. He will have the wisdom of his father, the devil. Depending on the translation, in one verse the antichtist is called “the lie”. It is believed he is alive in Europe at this time, but cannot come forth until the born again Christians are translated off this earth in the twinkling of an eye-ref 1 Cor 15:52. Once he comes forth immediately after the translation of God’s people, he agrees to a covenant with Israel-ref Dan 9:27. Shortly after (as we may say), all hell breaks lose on this earth, as Russia and some Arab nations combine to attack tiny Israel. Many are killed in Israel, but Israel cries out to God, and God hears them. God steps in to defend Israel, as He did in Old Testament times. Five/sixths of the huge invasion forces are destroyed-ref Ezek 38. What God does is so swift and incredible that afterward many people repent and turn to Christ in a great revival. However, for many of them, death by decapitation is what lies ahead, as the antichrist will reign and rule the earth for the last 3 ½ years of the tribulation.
Regretfully, many people will never have a chance to repent, expecially in the US and Russia. During this time, we can expect that one out of every four people on earth will be killed-note Rev 6:1-8; Ezek 38,39, as a result of what we call WW3. This begins with the Russian/Arab invasion of Israel. Iran is included in the invasion and several other countries as well. The Scriptures seem to point to a great war, which should come right after the Russian/Arab invasion of Israel. It will last about 8 hours. It is between a super powerful nation in the land of Magog (modern-day Russia) and a super powerful country which appears to be called an isle of the sea. Appears fantastic weapons will be used in this 8 hour conflict. As a result, 1 out of every 4 people on earth will die. What is even more terrifying is that every one of those that die will be in hell-note Rev 6:8. How could this be? The explanation may be that the rapture had just happened, and all true born again Christians were removed, but all the unsaved and make-believe Christians were left behind.
Ok, you may say: this sounds so far-fetched, it’s ridiculous. Well, the Bible has app. 365 prophecies that would be fulfilled beginning with Israel’s rebirth. Israel’s rebirth seemed impossible, but it happened. All the power of the Arab nations could not stop it. Again and again, when the Arab nations have tried to crush Israel, they were defeated. How can a tiny nation stand against the combined forces of the mighty Arab nations? Yet when they attack Israel, they are defeated. The hand of God is with Israel for certain, even though Israel does not trust in Jesus at this time.
Have you noticed the huge military buildup currently underway in Russia? Why would they be doing this????—when the US is downsizing its military?????
Consider, the impossible. The Bible tells of a time, during the tribulation, in which the antichrist shall require people to take a mark in one of three forms. One form is the number of his name, which is 6 6 6. Why is this required?
Note—what its purpose is. A person cannot buy or sell anything unless he has this mark in or on his forehead or right hand. Note the words “buy or sell”-ref Rev 13:17.
How does this relate to right now? Much that is going on right now is related to all transactions being done through the internet—buying and selling, banking, and paying bills and more. As we understand, Sweden is moving right now in the direction of a cashless society. Did you know this?
So why will this mark be required to be in or on a person’s forehead or right hand? Consider the hacking and theft taking place on the Internet. Credit card numbers are being stolen by the thousands. Banks are being hacked. People’s bank accounts are being compromised. Seems no matter how good the online security is, hackers can break through and steal. The Bible clearly shows that all kinds of evil will increase more and more. However, during the tribulation, technology will be developed that will give people online access like a bank card; a device that will be in or on a person’s right hand or forehead that no hacker can tamper with. No one can use it except the person that has it. No one can buy or sell without it. Sounds like a great idea, except—the Bible warns that every person that takes this mark or the number of the Antichrist’s name is guaranteed eternal damnation. There is no forgiveness.
A few years ago such a thing was unthinkable. Today, it is becoming a reality. The Bible tells of these days—knowledge shall increase-ref Dan 12:4. This is certainly true right now.
weather patterns are changing greatly all over the world. The Bible predicted in many scriptures that this would happen after the rebirth of Israel, as one of the signs that the tribulation was near. These crazy weather patterns that the earth is experiencing shall continue to get more and more intense. Ready or not, these things are happening right before your eyes.
So then, knowing these things—what should you do? Begin by fearing God. God is greatly to be feared in the assembly of the saints-Ps 89:7. Fear God and repent. Receive Jesus Christ as your only hope of salvation. There is none righteous, no not one—which includes you. Repent, and ask God in prayer to be your Lord and Saviour. Begin reading your Bible daily. Begin with the Gospel of John. Read it three times; then the whole New Testament 3 times; then the whole Bible. You need faith or trust in God, and this is only possible through His pure Word. A bunch of worldly stores about the Bible or about your preacher increases no one’s faith; and without faith it is impossible to please God. Be baptized by full immersion after repenting and believing on the Jesus of the Bible-ref Acts 2:38; Rom 6:4; Col 2:12 and many more. As you study God’s Word, OBEY IT. Do not read only one or two chapters a day. Read many chapters without excuse, every day, for it is God speaking to you directly. Be faithful. Evil is going to continue to increase in this world; and for the true Christian, it is going to become more and more difficult, but being faithful has the reward of everlasting life.
The penalty for not being faithful is the second death—which is the eternal lake of fire, from which there will never be any rest, day or night.
Update June 23, 2011
It is written: ALL SCRIPTURE IS GIVEN BY INSPIRATION OF GOD...NO PROPHECY OF THE SCRIPTURE IS OF ANY PRIVATE INTERPRETATION. FOR THE PROPHECY CAME NOT IN OLD TIME BY THE WILL OF MAN: BUT HOLY MEN OF GOD SPAKE AS THEY WERE MOVED BY THE HOLY GHOST–ref 2 Tim 3:16; 2 Pet 1:20-21.
There are approximately 10,385 prophecies in the Bible. Every one, to this time, has come to pass
without one exception. Jesus said–O FOOLS, AND SLOW OF HEART TO BELIEVE ALL THAT THE PROPHETS HAVE SPOKEN.
The Bible reveals that we would know we had entered the latter years—of the last days when the rebirth of Israel had taken place. That happened May 14, 1948. Then approximately 365 prophecies would follow within this generation.
Do you understand how the world is changing and what it means? First, Israel would be reborn. Now there are increases in globalization, technology, communications, unusual weather patterns, tsunamis, alternate lifestyles, economic problems, false prophets, bombs 2500 times bigger than used in WW2 and violence, Middle East unrest, and the Israeli–Palestinian situation. These all prove the Bible is true.
One of the most incredible prophecies is when the two prophets of God are killed around the end of the Tribulation, that THEY OF THE PEOPLE AND KINDREDS AND TONGUES AND NATIONS SHALL SEE THEIR DEAD BODIES THREE DAYS AND AN HALF, AND SHALL NOT SUFFER THEIR DEAD BODIES TO BE PUT IN GRAVES. How would it be possible for people all over the world to see their dead bodies as the Bible describes?
Consider this. Recently, it was announced that the President of the United States would make a special announcement; yet, before he could make that announcement, people all over the world had already learned what the announcement was about. It seems, within minutes, the news had “gone viral,” or traveled all over the world via the Internet and hand–held devices.
In the same manner, when the two prophets of God are killed by the Antichrist, people all over the world will be able to see what has happened. But then, after they rise from the dead after 3½ days, men’s heart will fail them for fear; for they will know that Jesus Christ is about to return at the time of Armageddon.
The Bible foretold there would be some way for people to instantly have worldwide, visual communication. Not long age, this was impossible; but now—it is a reality.
Rev 11:4–15–These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth. And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed. These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will. And when they shall overcome them, and kill them. And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. And they of the peole and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves. And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth. And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upoon them which saw them. And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them. And the same hour ws there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand; and the remnat were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven. The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly. And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Chirst; and He shall reign for ever and ever.
The Bible foretold there would be weapons with such destructive force, that one out of every four people in the world will be killed in a very short time, during the first part of the Tribulation. Then one out of every three people on earth will be killed in the second part. As Armageddon is about to explode, more than half of the world's population will be dead, and much of what is left will be killed during the Battle of Armageddon. As bad as things seem right now, it is only a drop in the bucket compared to what is soon coming. If you have not surrendered to Christ yet, your time is running out. The dead have no chance to ask Christ to be their Lord and Saviour.
Life is a Test to see if you will believe and obey the Gospel. Jesus cares. He may be reaching out to you now.
The FOOL HAS SAID in his heart, THERE IS NO GOD.
Why are some countries in the Middle East (that are in revolt) supported with outside help, and others are not? The answer is in Ezekiel chapters 38 and 39. Everything that is happening in the world that is covered by Bible prophecy will be fulfilled. God’s Word outlines the history of the world from start to finish. It's accuracy is perfect. Can any book written by man make such a claim?
Update June 13, 2011
The Bible also forecasted bigger & more frequent earthquakes in various places; as a sign that the tribulation & the battle of Armageddon was approaching. The Bible gives over 300 signs to look for after Israel would be reborn as a nation, so we would know and understand the times we are in. There is absolutely no question at all that we are in the latter days. Have you surrendered your life to Jesus? Are you reading your Bible daily as you ought to be doing? Huge tidal waves or tsunami’s are also foretold by the Bible. Time is running out. The proof is there, if you choose to look and see.
Update March 9, 2011
What profit is there if you gain the whole world now, but, lose your own soul for eternity? What profit is there if you are the richest man on earth for 70 years then perish to the lake of fire for eternity?
Update March 7, 2011
As of the writing of this blog, several countries in the Middle East are experiencing protests and riots, and some long–time rulers are being overthrown.
So what is happening? We know that the Tribulation is near. Just how near we cannot be certain. Very near the beginning of the Tribulation, the combined Russian–Arab invasion of Israel takes place–ref Ezek chapters 38 and 39. This appears to be confirmed in both Ezekiel and the Revelation. What we should be seeing at this time is a realignment of the leadership of some nations, which will set the stage for the invasion of Israel. You may have noted, there is reportedly a huge military buildup now underway in Russia, unlike anything they have done in many years. A tremendous amount of money is being spent—estimated over $600 billion. It is reported that helicopters, planes, war ships & submarines are all on the list.
One thing we can say for sure, as each day passes, we are one day closer to the rapture and immediately afterward the revealing of the Antichrist.
2 Th 2:1–15.
1–Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
2–That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
3–Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
4–Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
5–Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
6–And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
7–For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
8–And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
9–Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
10–And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
11–And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
12–That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
13–But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:
14–Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
15–Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.
Are you ready to meet Jesus, if He came this year or next year to take His people up to meet Him in the clouds? Or will you be left behind and become one of those app. 1.5 billion people that will die during the first part of the Tribulation? Rev 6:3–8–And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see.
4–And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.
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.
7–And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.
8–And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
Update August 2010
You may ask: “What is going on in the world?”
It seems like the world has turned upside down.
People seem to be given over to the lusts of the flesh and pleasures of this life. What has happened to the virtues of honesty, decency and hard work? Where has common sense gone?
Virtually the entire world has turned against Israel.
The world is becoming more and more like Sodom and Gomorrah.
Everything seems to be going in a global direction, from economics to education.
Many countries are in financial trouble.
Multitudes all over the world are finding fewer jobs available.
Many are losing their homes.
Every time a person goes on the Internet–where they go, what they do, and what they say on any site or in any email—is permanently recorded and can be accessed in microseconds.
More and more devices to monitor you are being installed worldwide. With few exceptions, no matter where you go, you are being watched and recorded.
Much of the reporting by the news-media is not objective, and often news concerning issues of importance go unreported.
More and more earthquakes are occurring.
Occasionally, new diseases are appearing.
Knowledge and technology are increasing at an incredible rate.
Terrorism is spreading at an alarming rate. Is there any place in the world one can go and be 100% sure they will be safe?
Governments are going in the direction of more control over people’s lives and businesses; and our individual freedoms are declining. Often statistics that are published are misleading, violating the public trust.
The name of the game that is going on is control and deception.
A world dictator will come on the scene soon, but before this, expect many of the things listed above to get worse, even as those in authority may tell you things are getting better.
So what can we do? Bring forth God’s Word and prepare the people to meet Jesus; but few will listen, even as it was in the days of Noah. Few believed the flood would come.. The fact that few believed the flood would come, did not stop it from happening. Things are going to get worse, but God’s Word is always correct. You cannot correctly pray that God’s Word will not come to pass. Much of what is happening was foretold in God’s Word.
While many are upset about these and other things, the informed, born-again Christian knows what is happening. He knows that an event in the Bible called the Translation or being “caught up” (or the Rapture, as many call it) is getting closer and closer. Few will be taken, and many will be left behind, crying out, “Lord, open to us!”
Many of the things mentioned here are mentioned in the Bible, as events that would take place after Israel’s rebirth. The Bible clearly states that Israel would be reborn as a nation. That was the event that revealed we had entered in the latter days. It happened May 14, 1948. Within a generation of that event, a multitude of prophecies would be fulfilled, including the Rapture. A generation “may” perhaps be 70 years (Ps 90:10). Some believe it could be longer. Of the 365 prophecies that the Bible tells us would take place, 364 are solidly in place.
Several of these prophecies that are listed have to do with born–again churches and the Bible. The Bible shows us that sound Bible teaching would nearly disappear. Religious persecutions would increase, for those that let their light shine for Jesus. The Bible predicted that the people of the world would no longer want sound doctrine, but they would want to hear what their itching ears wanted to hear. Sin would increase more and more.
Yes, things have greatly changed in the last few years, but 100% of the changes are in perfect harmony with what God’s Word has told us.
What more can be said, except—if you have not yet given your life to Jesus Christ, as your only hope of salvation, your time is fast running out. And if you are a lukewarm Christian, as many are, you are in spiritual trouble, because the lukewarm will not be taken in the Rapture. Don’t be misled by those, including clergy, that say the Rapture will never happen or that it will happen during or after the Tribulation. Beware of any clergy that does not preach more and more on repentance in this more and more sinful generation. Many have told us they can no longer find a good, Bible–teaching church in their area. God forbid, this is true. If you want to give your life to Jesus Christ, before it is too late, all the information on the home page should give you direction.
Study your Bible, diligently and often. It is life to those that will receive it. But woe to those that reject God’s Word. For they shall go into the soon coming Tribulation, in which the Antichrist shall come forth. It will be the worst years in the history of mankind. Within a few short years after the Rapture, more than one-half of the world’s population will be dead; and then immediately after the Tribulation, the Battle of Armageddon explodes, as the armies of the world gather to fight against the return of Jesus Christ and all of the saints. In 24 hours, the battle is over; and there are few people left alive on earth. The Antichrist and his false prophet are cast alive into the lake of fire, and Satan is bound for 1000 years, so he can deceive the nations no longer.
So you might ask, how much longer do we have before the Rapture takes place? By comparing the many prophecies in the Scriptures (THE SIGNS OF THE TIMES), we can certainly believe it is SOON.
Would you like to ponder something that is special? Consider this.
When the Rapture happens, immediately, in the twinkling of an eye, we are with Jesus. On earth, immediately the Antichrist (whose number of his name is 666) comes forth. Shortly thereafter, he confirms a covenant with Israel and others–Dan 9:27.
However, the saints are in heaven. They are judged. They appear at the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. Millions of saints, from the beginning of the world, will be there. Abel, Abraham, Moses, and the apostles will be there. Will you be there? After the Marriage Supper, the saints will be before the throne of God, as Jesus, the Lamb of God, takes the scroll and begins to open the seals. The first seal is the Antichrist coming forth. Did you catch that?????
On earth, the time that has passed is perhaps seconds, between the Rapture and the Antichrist coming forth. Yet, in heaven, perhaps hours, days, or weeks have passed from the time of the Rapture until the time Jesus begins to open the seals. Time, as we understand it, is much different in heaven than on earth. Do you understand the signs of the times? Are you ready for the Rapture? Are you watching for His soon return?
Update October 2009
The Bible clearly shows, as the Tribulation approaches, that various diseases would emerge and increase. It also tells that weather patterns would change (this has nothing to do with carbon emissions by mankind). These events would happen as birth pangs of a woman; increasing in frequency and intensity, as the Tribulation approaches, continuing during the Tribulation, and culminating immediately after the Tribulation when Jesus Christ returns at the time of Armageddon.
The Bible also shows, as the Rapture approaches, more and more people would turn from following Jesus; and fewer and fewer people would turn to God in truth. Religious deception and lukewarm teaching would abound and replace sound biblical doctrine. Is God speaking to your heart? Is He trying to draw you to repentance? If so, do not hesitate or resist His calling.

What lies ahead? According to the Scriptures, what lies ahead is both bad news and good news.
The bad news is the Tribulation, the worst time since man has existed, is coming soon–Mt 24:21.
The good news is that the Rapture of true born again Christians is also near–Lk 21:28,36; 1 Thes 4:16,17. But this is bad news for so-called Christians that do not obey the Gospel and follow Jesus as it is written–2 Thes 1:8. This is because they will be left behind, and their time to repent is running out. The number of true followers of God will become more and more like the days of Noah, Lot, Sodom and Gomorrah, as the pressure is turned up–Lk 17:28; Mt 24:27.
The news is that alternate life styles will continue to increase. Alternate life styles can be expected to prosper and become more and more accepted as in the days of Sodom and Gomorrah–Lk 17:28–30. More laws to protect them and give them special rights may also be enacted.
Many freedoms that the U.S. and some other countries have enjoyed can be expected to erode. Since there will be a world dictator coming on the scene soon, this means certain freedoms we enjoy must be done away with–Dan 7:25. More controls (through new laws and programs) must be implemented to manage and control the people and the education of the children. Any news-media (of any kind) that is not inline with this and what needs to be done in order to control the people and usher in a world dictator must be suppressed by all means possible by powers in high places–Eph 6:12.
Little by little, the Bible, the name of Christ, or Jesus Christ, the name of Christmas, and other such references must be suppressed and discredited–Acts 4:18.
Bible scholars, teachers and pastors that expound sound doctrine and prophecy need to be eliminated or discredited, or controlled by all means possible through trumped up charges, new laws or misuse of existing laws. Those that teach a “feel good” Gospel and “what sinful man’s ears want to hear” may prosper–2Tim 4:3.
It is already difficult to find a church anymore that teaches as Jesus and the apostles did. Indeed, the day is coming when there will be a famine of hearing God’s Word–Amos 8:11.
