2nd UPDATE 12/12/17
I strongly advise anyone reading this, check out the following link: Are You Prepared for the 2nd Coming? The days are short. The Lord may appear any day. Some may mock and say that others have been saying that for thousands of years.
2 Pet 3:
3: Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,
4: And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.
8: But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
To see my rapture page:
While it is true that the rapture can happen at anytime, and even Jesus didn't know when, and only the Father; it is believed by many, certain events have to be in place or ripe to take place when the Lord shall return. God didn't send Jesus as a babe until certain things were prophetically aligned. The same is true I believe, with the 2nd coming. I do believe certain times in history including during the lives of the Apostles, that the prophetic temperature was adequate for those to believe it may have taken place in their own life time:
18: Verily, verily, I say unto thee, When thou wast young, thou girdedst thyself, and walkedst whither thou wouldest: but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee, and carry thee whither thou wouldest not.
19: This spake he, signifying by what death he should glorify God. And when he had spoken this, he saith unto him, Follow me.
20: Then Peter, turning about, seeth the disciple whom Jesus loved following; which also leaned on his breast at supper, and said, Lord, which is he that betrayeth thee?
21: Peter seeing him saith to Jesus, Lord, and what shall this man do?
22: Jesus saith unto him, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? follow thou me.
23: Then went this saying abroad among the brethren, that that disciple should not die: yet Jesus said not unto him, He shall not die; but, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee?
Today the prophetic climate is more ripe than in any time in history for the Lord's return. Many believe that the time is now, for this generation:
The prophet Ezekiel foretold 2500 years ago that the key sign of that last generation would be the coming together of the dead, “dry bones.” (Ezekiel 37) Just 150 years ago Mark Twain called the land of Israel a “moonscape.” But the Psalmist said that “When the Lord builds up Zion, He shall appear in His glory.” (Psalms 102:13-16) And how He has built up Israel in the last one hundred years! Israel, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount, continue to be God’s time clock. That is why the world rages over those areas, and why that shall escalate on a daily basis until the end of the age.
Though ‘generation’ can mean a specific number of years, it is more likely that Jesus was referring to the world (people) living at the time prior to His second coming. If 1948 is the reference point for the beginning of the end, i.e. “the budding of the fig tree” (Luke 21:29-30) then it is possible that He will return before there is no one left to remember the re-establishment of the State of Israel.
...we are eyewitnesses to the staging process. The Bible says that there are a number of seemingly unrelated events that take place all in a single generation, somewhere in time.
Bible prophecy makes numerous references to the existence of a Jewish state called Israel in the last days [Ezekiel 37]. It also demands that Israel be in disputed possession of the city of Jerusalem [Zechariah 12].
It demands a conflict between Israel and her neighbors [Daniel 9]. The conflict is so intractable it will require supernatural intervention to resolve it [Dan 9:27 Zech 12:2-3].
["Who hath heard such a thing? who hath seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? or shall a nation be born at once? for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children." Isaiah 66:8].
...Israel was reborn in 1948...
Where are we in Bible prophecy right now? Jesus said 'when these things begin to come to pass, look up' [Luke 21:27] because 'this generation shall not pass, til all be fulfilled' [Matthew 24:34].
Although no man knows the day or hour, [Math 24:26] 'when ye shall see these things come to pass, know that it is nigh, even at the doors' [Mark 12:29].
Where are we in Bible prophecy right now? I was born in 1952 and I expect the Rapture and the Tribulation to occur in my lifetime. Events in Israel suggest it could take place at any moment.
So the questions are asked: Which generation will see Christ’s return? When did all of Christ’s Olivet Discourse prophecies see fulfillment to indicate the specified generation? Did the countdown to Christ’s return begin on May 14, 1948, when Israel declared statehood? Since Christ mentions that “all these things must be fulfilled” before Christ’s return, and Jerusalem did not come under Israeli control until 1967, did the clock begin ticking at the conclusion of the Six Day War?
Let's examine Ezekiel, chapter 4, verses 1-8. In this passage, we see 430 years of judgment pronounced upon Israel. Seventy years can be accounted for by the Babylonian captivity. This leaves 360 years that does not seem to fit any particular date in history. However, there are passages in Leviticus (26:18,21,24,28) that indicate that if Israel does not obey Him the first time, God will multiply her punishment by seven. So if we take the 360 years of punishment pronounced on Israel and multiply by seven, we get 2,520 years.
Knowing that the Bible deals in 360-day years (the Jewish calendar consists of twelve 30-day months), if we convert the 2,520 ``360-day years'' into today's ``365.242-day'' years, we get 2,483 years plus nine months and 21 days. Starting with the first siege of Nebuchadnezzar, which began the ``servitude of the nation'' in 606 B.C., the initial 70 years of Babylonian servitude ended in 537 B.C. as follows:
Seventy (360 day) years = 25,200 days = 69 (365 day years) less 2 days or: 606 B.C. (69 years - two days) = 537 B.C.
Counting from July 23, 537 B.C. with the release from servitude, we get:
537y 7m 23d (B.C.) plus 1year (because no year between 1 B.C. & 1 A.D.) plus 2483 years 9months and 12days =
the 1948th year 5 mon 14th day.
And what happened on May 14, 1948?
David Ben Gurion, citing the book of Ezekiel as his authority, proclaimed ``Israel'' as the new Jewish homeland. The nation of Israel was re-established on the exact day predicted by the Bible.
Now consider what happens if you start counting from the third siege of Nebuchadnezzar, which began the ``desolations of Jerusalem'' (Jerusalem uninhabited) in 587 B.C.
Counting from August 16, 518 B.C., which was the completion of the desolations of Jerusalem, then we have:
518y 8m 16d (BC) plus 1 year plus 2483y 9m 21d = 1967 6m 7d
On June 7, 1967, as a consequence of the ``Six Day War'', the Old City of Jerusalem fell under Israeli control for the first time since Jesus' prediction in Luke 21:24. ``And they will fall by the edge of the sword, and be led away captive into all nations. And Jerusalem will be trampled by Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.''
Another coincidence? The Jews say coincidence is not a kosher word. In the natural, it is impossible that this is coincidence. It is clearly by supernatural design. The fig tree is a symbol of the Nation Israel and we are the generation that will see the return of Jesus Christ in Glory and great Power.
I was born in 1967 myself. So, many believe it is the generation of 1967 or 1948, but mostly believe in 1948. I was not ready to declare the rapture as imminent until a couple of months ago (when I wrote this). I saw the need for America to be used against muslims or muslim nations before America herself will fall. God had used nations in the past, as His tool for war, before doing away with them. God used Babylon to take out Israel in the O.T., and then destroyed Babylon herself.
Oh yes, I do believe in America's fall. Many have prophesied her fall.
Before I get into the fall of the United States, I want to explain the need for the disappearance of Islam, the muslim faith. During the time of the Tribulation, there will be only 3 main religions: the One World Faith (see my Anti-Christ page titled, "The End Days" particularly the bottom 2/3 labeled "The Whore of Babylon" at the link highlighted before this text), Judaism (allowed by a covenant with the anti-christ), and the out-lawed Christianity. The muslim faith has no place in end time events and will be a hindrance to the plans of the anti-christ, which will be for all to worship him. In fact, he uses spiritual babylon, to gain power, but will eventually destroy it. This is why I insist the anti-christ is not a pope:
16: And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.
17: For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.
I discuss in detail the Anti-Christ here:
The Anti-christ and the Whore of Babylon
So, the muslim faith has no future. Of coarse America isn't going to completely destroy the muslim faith, but she is used to uncover the true intentions of Islam and its terrorism, as well as to do a serious blow. Somehow, the anti-christ will gain access to the newly rebuilt city of Babylon by Saddam Hussein.
Reportedly, Saddam has gone to great lengths to emphasize the relationship between himself and King Nebuchadnezzer, and has launched public educational campaigns to remind the Iraqi people of the former greatness of Iraq/Babylon. Saddam has even issued commemorative coinage with his image on one side, and King Nebuchadnezzer's image on the other.
It seems evident that Saddam aspires to restore the lost glory of what was once the greatest empire on earth. In line with this goal, Saddam has instituted the restoration of the ancient city of Babylon, located 56 miles south of Baghdad, just east of the Euphrates River.
Shortly before Operation Desert Storm, Saddam ordered a huge statue of himself to be constructed over the restored gate of Babylon. This parallels King Nebuchadnezzer's actions in Daniel 3.1-7. Whether or not Saddam intended to emulate King Nebuchadnezzer is unknown. However, if Saddam DOES sometimes refer to the Bible, he had better read Daniel 4.28-33. That Bible passage should warn Saddam that God judged King Nebuchadnezzer very harshly for his idolatry.
(Today as I write this, Saddam was announced as being captured.) How will the anti-christ gain this Iraqi city? Because America will fail or will not finish rebuilding Iraq. This is evident by the problems we are having there, but may possibly happen because the Rapture will cause American troops to be pulled out of the world to American soil (discussed below). The UN will have it's hand in Iraq, and thus when the anti-christ takes over the UN or EU, he will come into Babylon, Iraq, offering his peace. Or possibly, the anti-christ will come from the region.
One piece of the prophetic future in scripture is the final war between Israel and her enemies. Many are uncertain if this will occur before or after the rapture. Let's take a look at this prophetic event.
2 Son of man, set your face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief ruler of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal, and prophesy against him.
3 And say, So says the Lord Jehovah: Behold, I am against you, O Gog, the chief ruler of Rosh, Meshech and Tubal.
4 And I will turn you back, and put hooks into your jaws, and I will bring you out, and all your army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed most perfectly, a great assembly with buckler and shield, all of them swordsmen;
5 Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them, all of them with shield and helmet;
6 Gomer and all his bands; the house of Togarmah from the recesses of the north, and all his bands; and many peoples with you.
8 After many days you will be visited. In the latter years you shall come into the land turned back from the sword, gathered out of many peoples, on the mountains of Israel, which have always been waste. (But he has been brought out of the peoples, and they shall dwell securely, all of them.)
9 And you shall go up, coming like a storm. You shall be like a cloud to cover the land, you and all your bands, and many peoples with you.
10 So says the Lord Jehovah: And it shall be in that day that things shall come into your heart, and you shall devise an evil plan.
12 in order to take a spoil, and to steal a prize; to turn your hand on the inhabited waste places, and on the people gathered out of the nations, who have gotten cattle and goods, who dwell in the midst of the land.
13 Sheba and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all their young lions, shall say to you, Have you come to take a spoil? Have you gathered your company to steal a prize, to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil?
15 And you shall come from your place out of the recesses of the north, you and many peoples with you, all of them riding on horses, a great company and a mighty army.
16 And you shall come up on My people Israel like a cloud, to cover the land. It shall be in the last days, and I will bring you against My land, so that the nations may know Me when I shall be sanctified in you, O Gog, before their eyes.
18 And it shall be on that day, when Gog comes against the land of Israel, says the Lord Jehovah, My fury shall come up in My face.
19 For in My jealousy and in the fire of My wrath I have spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great quaking in the land of Israel,
20 so that the fish of the sea, and the birds of the heavens, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep on the earth, and all the men on the face of the earth, shall quake at My presence. And the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.
21 And I will call for a sword against him on all My mountains, says the Lord Jehovah. Each man's sword shall be against his brother.
22 And I will judge him with a plague and with blood. And I will rain on him, and on his bands, and on the many peoples with him, an overflowing shower, and great hailstones, fire and brimstone.
23 So I will magnify Myself and sanctify Myself. And I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am the LORD.
1 ¶ Therefore, son of man, prophesy against Gog and say, So says the Lord Jehovah: Behold, I am against you, O Gog, the chief ruler of Rosh, Meshech and Tubal.
2 And I will turn you back, and lead you on. And I will bring you up from the recesses of the north, and I will bring you on the mountains of Israel.
3 And I will strike your bow out of your left hand, and will cause your arrows to fall out of your right hand.
4 You shall fall on the mountains of Israel, you and all your bands, and the people with you. I will give you for food to the birds of prey of every kind, and to the beasts of the field.
6 And I will send a fire on Magog, and on the secure inhabitants of the coasts. And they shall know that I am the LORD.
7 And I will make My holy name known in the midst of My people Israel. And I will not let them profane My holy name any more. And the nations shall know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel.
8 ¶ Behold, it is coming, and it will be done, says the Lord Jehovah. This is the day of which I have spoken.
9 And the inhabitants of the cities of Israel shall go out and shall set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and the bucklers, the bows and the arrows, and the javelins, and the spears. And they shall burn them with fire seven years,
10 so that they shall take no wood out of the field, nor cut down any out of the forests for they shall burn the weapons for fire. And they shall plunder those who plundered them, and rob those who robbed them, says the Lord Jehovah.
11 And it will be in that day I will give to Gog a place there, a grave in Israel, the valley of those who pass by, east of the sea. And it shall stop the noses of those who pass by. And there they shall bury Gog and all his multitude. And they shall call it , The Valley of the Multitude of Gog.
21 And I will set My glory among the nations, and all the nations shall see My judgments which I have done, and My hand that I have laid on them.
25 Therefore so says the Lord Jehovah: And I will return the captivity of Jacob, and will have mercy on the whole house of Israel, and will be jealous for My holy name;
27 when I have brought them again from the peoples, and gathered them out of their enemies' lands, and am sanctified in them in the sight of many nations;
28 then they shall know that I am the LORD their God who exiled them among the nations. But I have gathered them to their own land, and have not left any of them there.
29 Nor will I hide My face from them any more, for I have poured out My Spirit on the house of Israel, says the Lord Jehovah.
I believe the victory over the arab nations will cause a spiritual change in the people. Thus the muslim faith will disappear.
We see this in other scriptures:
11 And it shall be in that day, the Lord shall again set His hand, the second time, to recover the remnant of His people that remains, from Assyria and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Ethiopia, and from Persia, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the coasts of the sea.
16 And there shall be a highway for the remnant of His people, those left from Assyria; as it was to Israel in the day that he came up out of the land of Egypt.
It is now known Israel has a fortune in oil, gas and gold. The aligned enemies of Israel will want this, as described in Ezek 38 & 39, especially since America suddenly seems to not help, they will then attack Israel, but God will supernaturally destroy this invasion. I am convinced this will be Russia, Iran and Turkey, possibly Sudan and others will be involved.
There are some who break down the war as 2 separate wars in fact, the 1st described in Isa 11 decribes Israel initiating a conflict, then Ezek 38 shows the remaining enemies of Israel attacking her. But I am leaning toward the idea the 1st war actually describes either the 1948 conflict and/or the 1967 one. But a 2nd war may be possible. But for more information about the 2 war possibility here is a good link:
The Wars of the End Times
But other nations with the Muslim faith will still exist. Here is a list of the nations involved in the possible 2nd war.
Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Bahrain Syria, Iraq, & Jordan (Iraq is mentioned because it is connected with Syria and was once Assyria, and Jordan is mentioned because Israel will be taking some of it's land).
But as things are becoming closer to happening and studying more on this, I believe there are 2 more possible endings to the rest of Islam instead of a 2nd war.
1. They will see the God of Israel in the Ezek 38 war and repent. Or
2. They will join the One World Religion
Islam will be destroyed, as the religion of Japan was destroyed when the Japanese empire fell when America dropped the nukes on it.
But there more than likely is a precursor to the Ezek 38 war. More than likely, this will be the fulfillment of the destruction of Damascus:
1 The burden against Damascus: Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a heap of ruins.
This is one prophecy I had not noted or heard about until recent months. But Zachariah chapter 9 proves to be very interesting:
1 ¶ The burden of the Word of the LORD against the land of Hadrach, and its resting-place, Damascus (when the eye of man, and all the tribes of Israel, shall be toward the LORD);
3 And Tyre shall build herself a stronghold, and shall heap up silver like the dust, and gold like the mud of the streets;
4 behold, the Lord will cast her out, and He will strike her wealth in the sea, and she shall be burned up with fire.
5 Ashkelon shall see and fear; Gaza also shall writhe in great pain; and Ekron shall be ashamed for her hope. And the king shall perish from Gaza, and Ashkelon shall not be inhabited.
6 And a bastard shall dwell in Ashdod, and I will cut off the pride of the Philistines.
9 ¶ Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem; behold, your King comes to you. He is righteous and victorious, meek and riding on an ass, even on a colt, the son of an ass.
13 For I have bent Judah for me as a bow; I filled it with Ephraim, and I will stir up your sons, O Zion, against your sons, O Greece, and make you as the sword of a mighty man.
14 And the LORD shall be seen over them, and His arrow shall go forth like the lightning; and the Lord GOD shall blow the ram’s horn, and shall go out with the windstorms of the south.
15 The LORD of hosts shall defend them; and they shall devour and trample the slingstones. And they shall drink and be boisterous, as through wine. And they shall be filled like a bowl, and like the corners of the altar.
16 And the LORD their God shall save them in that day as the flock of His people; for they are as stones of a crown, lifted up as a banner over His land.
Here we see Damascus, but also Gaza and the Philistines, which is believed to be the Palestinians. They will be involved.
Notice that Judah is like a bow, and the Lord will shoot His arrow like a lightning. Israel in recent months just received their new Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II jet!
But what is most remarkable is in verse 14, the Lord blows the trumpet (ram’s horn), it is now believed it may go with:
1 Thess 4:
16: For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
17: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
Thus it is now believed that it is possible that when Damascus gets destroyed, possibly by an Israeli nuke, or by weapons they themselves hid under their hospitals and schools, are set off when Israel hits the city.
This will infuriate the enemies of Israel and they will come together to start the prophesied wars.
But it appears there may be a miraculous element in this attack with Damascus, as the verses speak of God Himself acting. This coupled with the weapon(s) of mass destruction may be the trigger for the rapture and the working by God with Israel for their last 7 years.
Another possible trigger for the rapture would be a nuclear attack on Saudi Arabia by Iran. Some believe this is prophesied in scriptures, others say Saudi Arabia has been noted in scripture after such an event. I am not sure, but it is a possibility.
So what about America? Why and how will it fall? America has become luke warm in it's faith and has also become a cess pool of sin. She had a lot of grace because she was a christian nation once and preached the gospel to the whole world. But her grace is disappearing because of her sins.
Job 1: MKJV
10 Have You not made a hedge around him, and around his house, and around all that he has on every side? You have blessed the work of his hands, and his livestock have increased in the land.
Eccl 10: MKJV
8 He who digs a pit shall fall into it; and whoever breaks a hedge, a snake shall bite him.
But because America is strong, God is using her before she falls. America also has no place in scripture in the end times except perhaps here:
Ezek 38:13: Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof, shall say unto thee, Art thou come to take a spoil? hast thou gathered thy company to take a prey? to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil?
In this war with Israel, and the young lions may be represent the colonies of Britain. America may allow this attack upon Israel because she has begun to fall. How will it begin? The rapture will hit America perhaps the most, as far as causing direct problems. America has a large christian percentage and the loss of so much light in a nation already growing dark, will cause it to degrade further. Also, the amount of technology used in America is great. Can you imagine vehicles, soldering guns, and other hazardous items becoming uncontrolled by the absence of the user? There will be a lot of tragedy in America because of the rapture.
The U.S. government will bring home it's troops, because of all these troubles, and/or because of the plans of those in power who are involved in evil conspiracies. They may use the rapture as the time to implement their change of American law and society. This will also be furthered by the absence of the salt. The church is the salt, and thus it's preserving power will be gone.
To read about this Biblically prophesied government conspiracy read my page here:
Are the Governments Corrupted?
When the rapture occurs and the dust begins to settle or even while it is settling, many in the world and in America will realize they were wrong about christianity and will repent. In fact half of all christians won't be raptured. To find out why go here:
Are You Prepared for the 2nd Coming?
Basically, because you need the extra oil, I discuss at the beginning of that page. Well, many will seek this oil, and many unbelievers will get saved and Spirit filled. But not enough of America will repent, there will be a major confrontation in America over the issues we see today, and over the corrupt changes I wrote about above. The issues will polarize the nation and it will become extreme. The world will lose the grayness, everything will become black or white, a major factor for the Tribulation, so that the world can be judged.
Christians in America will take a stronger stance. Many conservatives and government officials will turn over a new leaf and begin to care. Those in authority who are in the scheme of the evil conspiracies, will begin to take away freedoms. Gun ownership will be outlawed. Christianity will be publicly denounced. America's heritage will also be denounced for new change. The institution of marriage may cease to exist.
Many conservatives, repentant politicians, extreme right wing groups, and newly Spirit filled christians will rebel against these evils. Many of whom, will be rounded up and imprisoned, perhaps by our own troops. Many military personal will rebel and join with militias. Civil war will break out. I do not think nor advocate that the new repentant christians will be warring against the government offensively, but probably defensively, after the rapture. I do not know how this will exactly take place.
In the midst of the civil dispute, America's enemies will attack. These MAY include: Russia, Cuba, China, North Korea.
As of this update, North Korea has become a nuclear enemy of the US and war is being toted as possible almost every week.
They will probably attack by forces first, and perhaps America will use nuclear weapons against their nations, for these nations can't be allowed too much power to thwart the anti-christ either. But some believe the Asians will indeed give the anti-christ problems later. So the success of America using nukes will probably be limited, and in return, America will be nuked.
But there may be cities of refuge. Cities which will be divinely protected:
... I have been giving public prophecy for the past 2 or 3 years regarding Colorado Springs being separated as a 'city of refuge'. Drawing a parallel from the Bible, a city of refuge was designated as a safe haven from those who were put at risk by an inadvertent or accidental death causing incident; which necessitated that the victim's family appoint 'an avenger of the blood'...
In our case we are talking of a derivation of this concept. For those that live in a society upon which Divine judgment has been decreed, than it is of necessity that God's people living in that society, seek out a place, or places, of safe haven. Biblical examples, Lot in Sodom, and Noah and his Ark, come to mind...
The thrust of God's message ... was that swirling storm winds are coming upon us in America, but if we would take the hand of Jesus, and give him our absolute trust, he would lead us into a place of safety -- right in the eye of the storm. In that place there is peace and calm as we only watch the swirling winds around us...
Of course the last place we would think to go, in the natural, would be into the eye of the storm...
It is this spiritual, gap standing, watchman energizing, intercession motivating climate of the Holy Ghost that will allow a selected city to escape that fate which may be coming upon the nation as a whole...
Fueling this mass migration of saints, is the inner conviction of impending Divine judgment on their present locality, and/or the stark realization that the culture of their present locality has become openly hostile to the gospel life and message. (There are seasons that we must stand and go through hostile trials of our faith, and then there are times when we are called to move on. Only God can direct you to which action to take for your family.). This motivation is similar to the motivation that caused believers to risk life and limb to sail across the Atlantic to the new land called America...
Sadly, I see areas which are now states, functioning, in the future, as independent territories. I see mass physical destruction on large parts of our dear land. I see cities with their own military forces; fighting plundering chinese soldiers and other communist soldiers, fighting U.N. forces; fighting for the very freedoms that we once said we represent. I see a puppet government emerging in the next millennium...
On Governments & Laws
Revelation on Governments and Laws. Christians must obey the laws of the lands in which they live to the extent they do not compromise their faith. The New Covenant Cities of Refuge will be the only places of order and stablity in the last days. The prophecy here given on the communist lands began to be fulfilled two years later as their governments were toppled and Christians were given more freedom after decades of repression. Governments exist to bless their citizens. The call to gather to Zionic communities is again affirmed [Tøyen, Oslo, Norway].
Cities of Refuge during the Great Tribulation
10. It is only when the Desolator cometh and the sword is lifted against the saints that ye shall flee unto the Cities of Refuge and live My laws apart from the laws of earthly governments, for then ye shall be justified if ye have not lifted up the sword of vengeance yourselves.
11. Until then let none suppose they are above any earthly laws, but let them uphold all earthly governments, and pray for them, that My righteousness may be manifested in them.
I do not advocate rebelling against government or authority:
Statements of Faith
I believe the governments are from God.
Romans 13: MKJV
1 Let every soul be subject to the higher authorities. For there is no authority but of God; the authorities that exist are ordained by God.
2 So that the one resisting the authority resists the ordinance of God; and the ones who resist will receive judgment to themselves.
3 For the rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the bad. And do you desire to be not afraid of the authority? Do the good, and you shall have praise from it.
4 For it is a servant of God to you for good. For if you practice evil, be afraid, for it does not bear the sword in vain; for it is a servant of God, a revenger for wrath on him who does evil.
5 Therefore you must be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience' sake.
6 For because of this you also pay taxes. For they are God's servants, always giving attention to this very thing.
7 Therefore give to all their dues; to the one due tax, the tax; tribute to whom tribute is due , fear to whom fear is due , and honor to whom honor is due .
I do believe in resisting evil though. If the government was going to imprison all christians and they were coming to take my family I would fight.
Many christians will survive the nuclear attacks as Daniel's three friends did in the fiery furnace:
15: Now if ye be ready that at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship the image which I have made; well: but if ye worship not, ye shall be cast the same hour into the midst of a burning fiery furnace; and who is that God that shall deliver you out of my hands?
16: Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, answered and said to the king, O Nebuchadnezzar, we are not careful to answer thee in this matter.
17: If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king.
18: But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.
19: Then was Nebuchadnezzar full of fury, and the form of his visage was changed against Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego: therefore he spake, and commanded that they should heat the furnace one seven times more than it was wont to be heated.
22: Therefore because the king's commandment was urgent, and the furnace exceeding hot, the flame of the fire slew those men that took up Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego.
23: And these three men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, fell down bound into the midst of the burning fiery furnace.
24: Then Nebuchadnezzar the king was astonied, and rose up in haste, and spake, and said unto his counsellers, Did not we cast three men bound into the midst of the fire? They answered and said unto the king, True, O king.
25: He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.
26: Then Nebuchadnezzar came near to the mouth of the burning fiery furnace, and spake, and said, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, ye servants of the most high God, come forth, and come hither. Then Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, came forth of the midst of the fire.
27: And the princes, governors, and captains, and the king's counsellers, being gathered together, saw these men, upon whose bodies the fire had no power, nor was an hair of their head singed, neither were their coats changed, nor the smell of fire had passed on them.
28: Then Nebuchadnezzar spake, and said, Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, who hath sent his angel, and delivered his servants that trusted in him, and have changed the king's word, and yielded their bodies, that they might not serve nor worship any god, except their own God.
The very nuclear flames which were made to be harm for America, will in reverse, become a shield for those in America who have turned to God.
Exod 14: MKJV
24 And in the morning watch it happened that the LORD looked to the army of the Egyptians through the pillar of fire and of the cloud, and troubled the army of the Egyptians.
25 And He took off their chariot wheels, and made them go heavily, so that the Egyptians said, Let us flee from the face of Israel, for the LORD fights for them against the Egyptians.
Joel 2:3 A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them.
14: And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.
15: And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.
16: And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.
17: And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
I believed that a Civil disruption in America followed by a possible nuclear attack by other nations will cause America to be unable to help Israel.
I thought a possible civil war would happen a month or so ago, if the rapture was gonna happen 1st. But there was no rapture, and the protests were mild.
So do I still think a civil dispute will occur? What will happen to America?
Well if the Ezek 38 war is only a 2-5 dominoes away, something has to happen soon! Very soon! To cause America to be unable or unwilling to help Israel.
Let’s look at Luke 21. Many prefer Matt for this reference but I think Luke is better.
7 And they asked Him, saying, Teacher, but when shall these things be? And what shall be the sign when these things are about to take place?
8 And He said, Take heed that you are not deceived, for many shall come in My name, saying, I AM! Also, The time has come! Do not go after them.
9 But when you hear of wars and disturbances, do not be terrified, for all these things must first occur, but the end is not at once.
10 And He said to them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.
11 And great earthquakes shall be in different places, and famines and plagues. And there shall be terrors and great signs from Heaven.
In recent years I have heard people say that the nation vs nation is better to be translated as Ethnic wars. The original Greek word translated “nation” was “ethnos,” from which we get our word “ethnic.”
And the world has seen this in recent years, and especially America has had serious ethnic tensions!
You will also note Luke says there will be great earthquakes and great signs from Heaven. Well the Rev 12:1-2 sign was a great sign on Sept 23 or 24:
1 And there appeared a great sign in the heavens, a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon was under her feet, and a crown of twelve stars on her head,
2 and having a babe in womb, she cries, being in travail, having been distressed to bear.
And the recent Iran earthquake was considered great.
So could the “earthquakes shall be in different places” be part of America’s demise? Could it be ethic troubles or wars with other kingdoms? What if it’s all of these?!?
Some believe that part of the destruction of the invading armies into Israel will be by the largest earthquake yet on Earth. This could be a worldwide Earthquake and it could disable America. But some of the disabling could also be the rapture at the same time. America will probably have the most raptured populous in the Earth. And such a large disappearance would be a serious problem in America. But this may also happen beforehand we don’t know.
Personally I now think any large civil disputes will happen after the rapture. But last week or so there were conspiracy reports that Trump squashed a CIA coup of his administration. Not sure if such reports were true or not.
Something is going to disable America or cause America to not help Israel. Whatever that something is, has to happen soon, if Ezek 38 is going to take place soon.
Do I think there will be a civil war? I think there will be ethnic riots and civil disruption afterwards as scripture seems to point it will happen somewhere. I don’t know.
Will there be an attempt by rebellious government forces against Trump? I don’t know.
Will America be nuked? I think so, but again after the rapture. But I don’t know.
Will America have 1 or more great Earthquakes? Probably, as scripture says these will occur in different places. But again I don’t know.
I have no “Thus saith the Lord”, despite my webpage speculating on these things. But there has been too many prophecies over the years about our fall, and America’s absence from end time events seems to point to this. America cannot exist for the anti-christ to rule, as America would not allow it.
So what will happen to the church that is not raptured? I discuss this group in detail on this page:
The 2 & a Half Tribes that didn't Cross Over
When the rapture takes place and leaves half the church on earth. The church will polarize as does America, and the rest of the world. I have seen one of the major purposes for the tribulation, it was the removal of all gray areas. Everything will become black or white so God can make His judgments. This happens because the church, which is the salt of the earth, has been removed. Salt preserves, and thus, the earth will lose it's preservative, and will rapidly disintegrate into evil and darkness.
The Catholic Roman Church will be changed. It will take a severe shaking and will spring forward in it's plans for political power as it had in the past. Some in Rome as in all the left over christians, will repent and flee.
Jeremiah 51:6 Flee out of the midst of Babylon, and deliver every man his soul: be not cut off in her iniquity; for this is the time of the LORD'S vengeance; he will render unto her a recompence.
Rev 18:4: And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
Rome will shake off all form of christendom, and will in fact denounce it, and will soon persecute it. Rome will gain power by swallowing and joining up with all other religions, except Judaism and Christianity. Many in the world will turn to Rome for help and peace, as they see her forsake christianity and open her doors officially to all religions.
The anti-christ which will soon come to power after this, will work with Rome, the new One World religion, the whore of Babylon, for his own gain. In his rise to power, he will need to use Rome to get his power. But he secretly hates her, and will eventually destroy Rome and the One World Religion, because he wants all the world to worship him.
16: And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.
17: For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.
Thus the antichrist and Rome will begin to persecute and kill the christians. So, the church will turn into 2 different groups. Some will turn to apostasy and join spiritual Babylon, and others will repent and be Spirit filled and restore the church as it should have been.
Hag 2:9: The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the LORD of hosts...
The church will become united as it was in Acts, and will see the full restoration of the doma gifts.
To learn about the doma gifts, go here:
The church will have great authority and power. This is for several reasons. For one, it will become purged of it's iniquities. The time of the Tribulation will do this, as will the persecution. Also the unity will bring this about, when folk will see the prophecies are being fulfilled as was told by many of whom were raptured. God will also grant abundant displays of power during this time, as the demonic forces will as well. There will also be a great need of church discipline. As the persecution becomes strong and the One World Economic system starts, requiring the mark of the beast, the church will have all in communion as they did in Acts. And thus may have to show the power done in Acts.
29: And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word,
30: By stretching forth thine hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by the name of thy holy child Jesus.
31: And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.
32: And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither said any of them that ought of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common.
33: And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all.
34: Neither was there any among them that lacked: for as many as were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the prices of the things that were sold,
35: And laid them down at the apostles' feet: and distribution was made unto every man according as he had need.
1: But a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession,
2: And kept back part of the price, his wife also being privy to it, and brought a certain part, and laid it at the apostles' feet.
3: But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land?
5: And Ananias hearing these words fell down, and gave up the ghost: and great fear came on all them that heard these things.
7: And it was about the space of three hours after, when his wife, not knowing what was done, came in.
8: And Peter answered unto her, Tell me whether ye sold the land for so much? And she said, Yea, for so much.
9: Then Peter said unto her, How is it that ye have agreed together to tempt the Spirit of the Lord? behold, the feet of them which have buried thy husband are at the door, and shall carry thee out.
10: Then fell she down straightway at his feet, and yielded up the ghost: and the young men came in, and found her dead, and, carrying her forth, buried her by her husband.
11: And great fear came upon all the church, and upon as many as heard these things.
12: And by the hands of the apostles were many signs and wonders wrought among the people; (and they were all with one accord in Solomon's porch.
13: And of the rest durst no man join himself to them: but the people magnified them.
14: And believers were the more added to the Lord, multitudes both of men and women.)
It is now a week or so after Trump's inauguration, and even before this, when I learned of his winning the election, I asked myself, what will happen when Trump takes office?
My reading of Ezek 38:13 leaves me thinking that America doesn't want to help Isreal, but maybe this is not the case. Perhaps my prophetic assessment is backwards.
After Trump came into office we have seen violent protests. How much more will it get violent if the Earth loses it's salt?
Matt 5:13 ¶ You are the salt of the earth...
The Church is the salt of the Earth. The Church holds back evil from running rampant on the Earth. What happens if that salt is removed? I think that may trigger Civil war, as I have already shared. And if indeed other nations attack America during this turmoil, maybe Trump's hands will be full and can't help Isreal.
We don't know how this will pan out, and I hope not to be here when it does. Time will tell.
