Prophecy Update: Signs of the Times 9/28/2022

Have you ever thought that it could not get worse? Have you ever thought that things are not right in the country? Have you ever thought that the Lord’s return must surely be close? If you have thought these things, then welcome to the club of many millions of believers around the world. You are not alone!

Why do we think these things? This week we will give a sampling of biblical descriptions that describe the end times and cause us to feel these things!

Lawlessness: Sin is lawlessness!

“Let no one in any way deceive you, for it has not come unless the [fn]apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction,” 

2 Thess.2:3

The last days are described as a time of lawlessness. Here are a few articles about the lawlessness gripping our country and world. 

“Murderapolis”: Ground Zero For ‘Defund The Police’ Movement Now Suffering Horrendous Crime Wave: In the mid-1990s, the murder rate was so high in Minneapolis that it earned the nickname, “Murderapolis.” Now, more than two years after the Democrat stronghold turned into ground zero for the ‘defund the police’ movement after the murder of George Floyd, Murderopolis is back. “The criminals were celebrating. They were getting rich” after police withdrew from violent neighborhoods in the wake of Floyd’s killing, said longtime resident, KG Wilson. “They were selling drugs openly.” Wilson’s 6-year-old granddaughter was killed in May of 2021 after getting caught in the crossfire of a shootout in north Minneapolis.” https://www.zerohedge.com/

“FBI lied to judge: The FBI was able to crack open more than 1,400 safe-deposit boxes in Beverly Hills, Calif., taking more than $86 million in personal possessions from hundreds of people in 2021. Now a lawsuit is alleging the FBI deceived the  judge who signed off the warrant for their controversial raid.” https://americanmilitarynews.com/

‘The U.S Postal Service spied on ‘MAGA’ protesters, gun rights activists and other right-wing groups between late 2020 and early 2021, according to records obtained by The Washington Times. ‘MAGA’ is former President Donald Trump’s slogan meaning “Make America Great Again.” “The Postal Service cannot reliably deliver mail to my own home, yet they can find the money and people to effectively digitally spy at scale, including on Americans engaged in First Amendment-protected activities,” Eddington said.” https://americanmilitarynews.com/

As you can see from these three articles, the constitution of the United States no longer applies according to our government and especially the FBI. It is not only lawlessness that characterizes our nation and world, it is also wars and rumors of wars:

Wars and Rumors of wars:

“Russian Orthodox church absolves Russian soldiers dying in Ukraine: The head of the Russian Orthodox Church has said that Russian soldiers who die in the war against Ukraine will be cleansed of all their sins, days after President Vladimir Putin ordered the country’s first mobilization since World War Two.” https://www.jpost.com/

Russian President Putin has called up one million soldiers to fight this fight with the west. One quarter of a million people have already been called up and are training for the war with the west. Putin said in his speech last week that the war is with NATO and the United States. Russian state media is saying that one third of the soldiers shot and captured in Ukraine are from NATO countries including the United States. This war will break out into other countries according to Russia and China! That’s right, China is entering the war with Russia. Check out this article:

“At the recent Shanghai Cooperation Organization summit in Uzbekistan  Xi told Putin that “We’re ready to team up with Russia” and the two countries performed joint naval patrols and military drills in the Pacific Ocean just hours before the conference. The two leaders agreed that the end of a unipolar world where the US dominates is just around the corner during their highly anticipated bilateral encounter on Thursday outside of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization summit in Uzbekistan. In his opening remarks, Putin referred to it as “ugly” and emphasised that the “vast majority” of countries have rejected American control.” https://greatgameindia.com/  

The last days wars include Russia in the Middle East, Israel against her neighbors who attack her, and several mentions of Iran in wars. Damascus will be destroyed and a European army will be formed. Countries like the USA are heading towards some type of civil war as things fall apart in the European Union. The Bible is clear that wars will be numerous in the last days:

“And you will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end.”  

Matt.24:6

“Republicans in Texas have a message for Joe Biden in response to his demands that many weapons be banned. “Come and Take It” “The phrase is known to Texans as the rallying cry that sparked the Texas Revolution on Oct. 2, 1835, in Gonzalez, Texas. The Mexican Army attempted to take a small cannon that was largely ineffective but used as a scare tactic to thwart Comanche raids and Texans weren’t giving it up without a fight. Their fight ultimately ended in an 18-minute battle in San Jacinto on April 21, 1836.”https://www.wnd.com/ 

Texas and Florida are showing their dissatisfaction with the federal government and are taking steps to defy unlawful, immoral laws. Israel faces the same type of division, they are facing a civil war. This is heartbreaking to follow, as this next article points out, Israel is in a mess. This is also a biblical prophecy, Israel has to be in a weak position before the Lord delivers them in a miraculous victory from the Lord. God does not want the Israelis to take credit for a victory. All biblical wars in Israel are meant to point them to Jesus, their messiah. The closest neighbors to Israel and those who live in Israel are saying…Come let us wipe them out as a nation that the name of Israel will be remembered no more. Psalm 83:4

“In May 2021, Arab Israelis fully participated in Hamas’ war against Israel. Arab Israelis rioted in mixed Jewish-Arab cities countrywide. Arab Israelis violently attacked their Jewish neighbors. They burned and looted Jewish businesses and homes, and destroyed synagogues. Arab Israelis rioted at key traffic junctions to block military traffic. Arab truck drivers working for the IDF didn’t show up to work.  Brig. Gen. (retired) Effi Eitam sounded the alarm: Arab Israelis are building an army under Israel’s nose.

“They train themselves,” he says, adding that they travel to remote places at night to practice shooting. “This is my old soldier ear which can hear that this is not a fantasy, it is not just shooting at weddings.”

“They are trained, they are committed, they have experience in killing,” Eitam also adds, referring to the high rate of violent crime within the Arab sector. “Slowly, step by step, an army is emerging.” https://carolineglick.com/  

I think it is very important for you to know that the European Union, the USA, Iran, and Russia are all funding groups in Israel to destroy the state of Israel. The Bible is clear that a hook is being put in Russia’s jaw to drag her to war in Israel so that God can judge Russia and all of her allies. Part of the hook is happening currently in the Ukraine war. 

“Jerusalem says it backs Ukraine’s territorial integrity while Moscow officials assert massive support in captured lands for joining Russia; West has denounced ‘sham’ votes. Officials in three Moscow-occupied regions of Ukraine on Tuesday claimed victory in referendums for a merger with Russia amid international condemnation of sham ballots.” https://www.timesofisrael.com/

What does this mean? Russia has made official the annexation of the Donbass and Donetsk regions. They are now Russian territory comprising 20% of Ukraine according to the United States and NATO. This means, any attack on these regions is an attack on Russia proper, requiring a military response on the lands of nations attacking Russia. That means, Russia now has reason to attack NATO countries including the United States. On Tuesday, Russia was attacked when saboteurs blew up the Nordsteam pipeline, Russian officials said that the United States did it and they would respond in kind. This is a big rumor of war that we have not seen in our lifetime. 

The question that I have for the Lord in all of this is, how far does America have to weaken for Russia to feel confident that they can attack Israel without fear of American retribution? As Ezekiel 38-39 points out, the nations complain about the invasion into Israel but they take no action. Not until the Biden Administration has that been a possibility. The Biden Administration has been working over time to weaken Israel and push them to war with Iran. 

These wars are coming because the division between East and West, China and Russia vs. NATO and USA, are foundational to the rise of antichrist. Antochrist will rise when the world is in chaos, crying out for a savior. If the chaos is so close, then so is the rapture of the church. Can’t wait to hear the trumpets sound!

A Christian Nation?

Prophecy Update: A Christian Nation? 9/14/2022

God has made it clear to every nation in the world that they are subject to His ways and His revelation. All nations have a life span that is subject to the will of God. If God wants to judge the nation, then He will warn that nation before He brings a final judgment. When He wants to bless a nation, He will lead that nation to understand and obey His will. For any nation to deny that God is the Lord is foolishness and not living in reality. The United States of America was started by people who believed that God was raising up the nation for His own purposes. Here are a few quotes from the founders:

John Witherspoon

Signer of the Declaration of Independence. “I entreat you in the most earnest manner to believe in Jesus Christ, for there is no salvation in any other [Acts 4:12]. . . . [I]f you are not reconciled to God through Jesus Christ, if you are not clothed with the spotless robe of His righteousness, you must forever perish.

Samuel Adams

Father of the American Revolution, Signer of the Declaration of Independence. “I . . . recommend my Soul to that Almighty Being who gave it, and my body I commit to the dust, relying upon the merits of Jesus Christ for a pardon of all my sins.”

John Dickinson

Signer of the Constitution. “Rendering thanks to my Creator for my existence and station among His works, for my birth in a country enlightened by the Gospel and enjoying freedom, and for all His other kindnesses, to Him I resign myself, humbly confiding in His goodness and in His mercy through Jesus Christ for the events of eternity.”

It is clear from these founders that they were Christians and that they thought you needed Jesus in your life. I have many other founders that I could have quoted, it is clear that this nation has been called of God. We have left the faith of our Fathers. It is tragic. Even so, there are many hopeful things to look forward to! Here is a quote from one of the people that lived through the American Revolution and contributed to the building of our country:

Jedediah Morse

 Patriot and “Father of American Geography” “To the kindly influence of Christianity we owe that degree of civil freedom, and political and social happiness which mankind now enjoys. . . . Whenever the pillars of Christianity shall be overthrown, our present republican forms of government, and all blessings which flow from them, must fall with them.”

It is very clear that our nation was conceived by the Lord Jesus prior to the revolution of 1776. God prepared the nation for the coming conflict with the First Great Awakening. The revolutionary motto, “Rebellion to tyrants is obedience to God,” filled the land. Many have said of the Revolution that it started in the First Great Awakening. Here is an example…

“It was the first experience shared by large numbers of people throughout the American colonies, and helped shape the formulating American identity. Revivalists partook in large public meetings, openly criticized the elites of society, and prayed for the hastened arrival of Christ’s Second Coming and the establishment of his kingdom on Earth. Because of these factors and more, some scholars have come to see the First Great Awakening as a kind of “dress rehearsal” for the War of Independence.” https://allthingsliberty.com/2016/08/great-awakening-american-revolution/

As Jedediah Morse noted in the earlier quote, lose Christianity, lose the nation. God is clear in the scriptures….

“For the LORD is our judge, The LORD is our lawgiver,The LORD is our king; He will save us”

Isaiah 33:22

This verse points out that God is the only savior of nations and people. The categories of judge, lawgiver, and king mirror the three branches of government in America. The judicial, legislative, and executive branches were conceived in America to follow Gods plan for nations. Our nation has violated this statute laid out for us by God. Florida is actually going the opposite direction of the nation, they are embracing the truth of God.

 

HISTORIC FIRST: DESANTIS TO REQUIRE TEACHING HEBREW BIBLE IN FLORIDA’S PUBLIC SCHOOLS: Governor Ron DeSantis to make his state the first to teach “the Hebrew Bible” a requirement in Civics in Florida public schools. “They will learn about the Hebrew Bible and the role it played in the founding of our nation,” Cardozo-Moore explained. “They will learn about the Hebrew Bible and the role it played in the drafting of our founding documents. They will learn about the Hebrew Bible and the role it played in the structure in our form of government. Our nation was founded on the Torah.” “Florida is the only state in the nation now that is teaching what God commands us to teach our children,” she said. https://www.israel365news.com/274710/historic-first-desantis-to-require-teaching-hebrew-bible-in-floridas-public-schools/  

“While researching quotes from our founders for the new site images, I learned something new (yes, us old folks can do that). It seems that the three branches of government found in our Constitution are the result of a scripture. “For the LORD is our judge (Supreme Court), the LORD is our lawgiver (Congress), the LORD is our king (Presidency); He will save us.” Isaiah 33:22 (parenthesis inclusions are mine).

It seems that the verse inspired James Madison to separate the powers while attending the Constitutional Convention of 1787. Many forget that our founders were deeply religious men who drew the inspiration for our Declaration of Independence and Rights from the Bible and Christianity.” https://justfacts.votesmart.org/public-statement/191389/isaiah-3322-our-form-of-government

I read a book many years ago that purported Isaiah 33:22 was the foundation for our own government. It was called, “We Still Hold These Truths: Rediscovering Our Principles, Reclaiming Our Future” by Matthew Spalding. The book was an amazing ride through history, cataloging all the founders did and believed, all the while demanding America return to her roots. When our rights are treated as if the government is God, then all bets are off. God will not long wait to act on a nation that apostates from Him and the truths He laid out for it! 

The pillars of Christianity have fallen in America, therefore our nation is failing. Where did these thoughts of a Christian nation come from? The founders read a book by Baron Charles Montesquieu who wrote “The Spirit of the Laws.” This book was very influential:

“A book that was read and studied intently by our Founders. Montesquieu wrote in 1748; “Nor is there liberty if the power of judging is not separated from legislative power and from executive power. If it [the power of judging] were joined to legislative power, the power over life and liberty of the citizens would be arbitrary, for the judge would be the legislature if it were joined to the executive power, the judge could have the force of an oppressor. All would be lost if the same body of principal men exercised these three powers.” Madison claimed Isaiah 33:22 as the source of division of power in government. So how did they produce a document that has withstood the test of an evolving government and growing Nation for 225 years? The answer: these men were steeped in the word of God. They understood their need of its constant direction, and they established a Nation based on its undying principles.”  https://justfacts.votesmart.org/public-statement/191389/isaiah-3322-our-form-of-government 

Separation of powers gives us protection from a despotic government. Unfortunately, our government has violated the separation of powers mandate, politicizing the Department of Justice, corrupting the FBI, and using mafia style tactics to brow beat their enemies into submission. Remember that the Christian men who built this country, they followed the Word of God. Here is another example:

Ezra 7:24: “You are also to know that you have no authority to impose taxes, tribute, or duty on any of the priests, Levites, singers, temple servants, or other workers in the House of the Lord.” Our government protected churches, no taxes for churches because the Word of God said so. The current IRS does not follow this decree from God and they are coming after the churches. Over half of the churches in America listened to the decree from the government not to meet two years ago. God separated the sheep from the goats at that time. What will happen the next time the government claims authority over God and His church? 

Our founding fathers knew their bibles, they trusted in it’s wisdom, and the lie of America today is that the founding fathers were not Christians. Lets pray like George Washington when he said, “ my fervent supplications to that Almighty Being who rules over the Universe, who presides in the Councils of Nations, and whose providential aids can supply every human defect, that his benediction may consecrate to the liberties and happiness of the People of the United States, a Government instituted by themselves for these essential purposes: and may enable every instrument employed in its administration to execute with success, the functions allotted to his charge.”

Fascism the Antichrist government!

Prophecy Update: Fascism: the antichrist government! 9/8/2022

“Children, it is the last hour; and just as you heard that antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have appeared; from this we know that it is the last hour.”

1 John 2:18

“Fascism refers to a way of organizing society with an emphasis on autocratic government, dictatorial leadership, and the suppression of opposition.” 

History has given us many examples of antichrist leaders. All of the Communist and fascist leaders of the past 100 years are antichrist. Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini, Pol Pot, Mao, Castro, and Kim Jong Un are recent examples of people I would categorize as antichrist. The reason is that they set themselves up as gods and their need to be worshipped replaces Jesus. Antichrist first means instead of Christ. Any system or person who replaces Jesus as the Messiah, any government that says all of your loyalty needs to go to party over God is antichrist. The Democratic party fits the bill of antichrist. The recent speech by President Biden fits the bill as an antichrist leader. His view of Christianity and government replaces what God says about government and Christianity!

The recent speech by President Biden, flanked by two marines, black and red background, was truly out of a NAZI propaganda video. He attacked MAGA supporters as enemies of the state. Never in our lives have we seen this type of authoritarianism in an American president. They are deathly afraid of people who support pro life positions, pro second amendment, pro first amendment, pro American, the ten commandments, and who think that God has given us our rights. In other words, if you still believe in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, you are an enemy of the state. 

“Biden’s Red Rant: Are Conservatives Being Set Up As Scapegoats For Disaster? Did the establishment just declare open war on conservatives?  It’s hard to determine what the point of Biden’s recent “Red Rant” is, but it does seem like a shot across the bow of anyone that doesn’t agree with the authoritarianism of the extreme political left. An important fact to remember is that these types of speeches are ALWAYS intricately planned.  Biden likely didn’t write that speech, a team of writers composed it for him.  Biden didn’t pick the totalitarian blood red lights as his backdrop, someone else planned that out.  The two Marines standing behind Biden were clearly meant as message of intimidation; it didn’t work but that’s besides the point.” https://www.zerohedge.com/political/bidens-red-rant-are-conservatives-being-set-scapegoats-disaster 

These antichrists always have the backing of the media. CNN is totally backing up Biden in his speech. 

“As I stand here tonight, equality and democracy are under assault,” Biden declared. Then he called the source of the problem by name. “Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic.” It remains to be seen whether Biden’s decision to speak so searingly, to condemn the man he had previously referred to as “the former guy,” is a wise tactical choice. But there is no question that he spoke the truth.” https://www.cnn.com/2022/09/02/opinions/biden-fiery-democracy-speech-ghitis/index.html

So according to CNN Biden is speaking the truth about Republicans who want to overthrow Roe! We the pro-life Christians of America are the problem, we are the enemies of the state! If you question the 2020 elections, if you say the election was unfair and stolen, then all of a sudden, you are the enemy because you are trying to overthrow the last election. The deceit and lying will not stop because they know that Americans are fed up with them. You always know what the left wants to do because they accuse their opponents of doing it. In the case of the last election, they cheated and stole the election and they plan on doing it again. But wait, if you claim that in November, off to the gallows with you.  

The speech was delivered at Independence Hall in Philadelphia and was the most vile, divisive, and hate filled speech of any president in history. This speech was not intended to unite the country, but divide the country into a fight. He painted half of the country as extremist and called them fascists then lied about the economy as if the economy was the best ever. Lying comes pretty easy to this guy! The narrative being put forth by Democrats, the World Economic Forum, and the left in general is based on lies and intended to usher in the antichrist system and antichrist!

“Joe Biden’s 4-D speech: Taking a page from the Israel-bashers’ playbook, the U.S. president added “disingenuousness” to his demonization, imposing of double standards and delegitimization of Republicans—the “three Ds” that Natan Sharansky proposed as proof of anti-Semitism. Rather than being eradicated through exposure, however, the three-D vilification technique has proven so effective that the left began to adapt it to discredit any figure or movement that doesn’t toe its line. The practice is especially blatant during political campaigns, such as the one being conducted in Israel ahead of the Nov. 1 Knesset elections and those surrounding the midterms in the U.S. Congress. Nothing better illustrates this demonization, imposing of double standards, delegitimization and disingenuousness than U.S. President Joe Biden’s prime-time speech to the nation on Thursday in front of Philadelphia’s Independence Hall.” 

The next quote from Biden illustrates how hateful and fascist the speech actually is, “MAGA Republicans (who “dominate” the party) “do not respect the Constitution. They do not believe in the rule of law. They do not recognize the will of the people. … [They] are determined to take this country backwards … to an America where there is no right to choose, no right to privacy, no right to contraception, no right to marry who[m] you love.”  https://www.jns.org/opinion/joe-bidens-four-d-speech/  

The marines were placed behind the president to intimidate and threaten anyone who is against the supreme court decisions that propelled the sins of idolatry, immorality, and killing innocents. The threat to anyone who says you don’t have a right to marry who you want refers to Ogberfell.

“Obergfell is the legal case in which the U.S. Supreme Court ruled (5–4) on June 26, 2015, that state bans on same-sex marriage and on recognizing same-sex marriages duly performed in other jurisdictions are unconstitutional under the due process and equal protection clauses of the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.”

The threat to those who say you have no right to choose refers to Roe. 

“Roe v. Wade is a 1973 lawsuit that famously led to the Supreme Court making a ruling on abortion rights.” Although the Supreme Court sent this back to the states a few months ago, the abortion movement carries on in our country. Biden blames the Supreme Court justices who were appointed by Trump and other Republicans. Claiming that they are against the country and constitution. This makes Jusitce Amy Barrett, an enemy of the state because she is pro life. 

Biden has not only attacked us from a political point of view, but he also has attacked Christianity. 

“After four years of accusing conservatives of violating the First Amendment by attempting to establish an American theocracy, the conclave of the Christian Left sent the ceremonial white smoke of affirmation through the metaphorical chimneys of our nation’s capital as The Times announced a more “religiously observant” neo-papacy, headed by none other than President Joe Biden, himself. President Biden’s pro-abortion beliefs are lauded as “steeped in Christian rituals and practices,” while simultaneously Leftists derogatorily refer to Amy Coney Barrett’s pro-life agreement with the Church as “dogmatic.” Forget forgiveness of sins, repentance, and the cross. The new religion of the left initiates its members through forced acceptance of global warming, racism, and pro-abortive child sacrifice. Fueled by a nearly state-run liberal media, the Christian Left holds their new pope’s doctrines, ratified by cowardly executive orders, as infallible and the ultimate expression of not only faith, but science, as they “solve” every problem from poverty to pollution.” https://stream.org/pope-biden-and-the-new-theocracy-of-the-christian-left/

Liberal Christianity cannot support abortion alone, they also make everyone else support it or else. The ‘or else’ is testimony to the spirit of antichrist in the heart of Joe Biden. Liberal Christianity supports homosexuality and every immorality and tries to make it illegal to teach the Biblical view of marriage and sexuality. For the Christians who voted for Biden, would you vote for a pro slavery president as you voted for a pro abortion president? Any so-called Christian who voted for Biden also voted for the antichrist spirit, alive and well in the objectives of the left! 

A prophetic storm is brewing! I want to finish with a word about evidence of the end times. The two countries, Israel and Iran are on the verge of an all out war. Things over the last year have escalated to open conflict in Syria. Israel is now hitting Iran in Syria several times a week.  Macron said that the end of abundance is here? Russia said that no gas to Europe? Europe said her people are going to freeze this winter? California has shut off electricity to certain parts of the state? Denver shut off people’s air conditioning? Trudeau is attacking the farmers in Canada trying to get them to not produce food? The Vatican in a strange command, said that everyone must move your money into the Vatican bank? Do it by October first, is not that a little odd? Pope Francis called for a reform of the United Nations for true world government. He called for a global tax as the global government needs global money. He also called for a world bank…sounds like Revelation 13! What about food security? Countries are using access to food to control people. President Lincoln was prophetic when he said that America could not be conquered by an outside power, we would have to fall from within! That is what we are seeing. 

Reagan said that “if we ever forget that we are one nation under God then we will be a nation gone under.” Our nation is full of people who still believe that we are one nation under God. Unfortunately, the gatekeepers do not believe it.
