Ninth of Av and Prophecy

Prophecy Update: July 26 is the Ninth of Av!             7/26/2023

The Ninth of Av! This day commemorates the catastrophes for Israel. The list is heartbreaking and tomorrow is the Ninth of Av. (July 26) This day is not a holiday but a day of mourning. The first catastrophe happened in Numbers 13-14 when the 12 spies went into Israel to spy out the land. When the spies came out, only two of them gave a good report, the other ten said we are not able to fight against the inhabitants of the land. They said there were giants in the land. God judged them and made them march around for 40 years.

The Temple was destroyed on the Ninth of Av, not once but twice. First the Babylonians and then the Romans in 70 AD. The Jews were expelled from England in 1290 on the Ninth of Av. They were expelled from Spain in 1492 on the Ninth of Av. Both World Wars started on the Ninth of Av. In Hebrew the Ninth of Av is called Tisha B’Av.

“Tisha B’Av, one of two “full-day” fasts in the Jewish year (the other occurs at Yom Kippur), is the culmination of a three-week period of mourning called “The Three Weeks” in English or Bein HaMitzarim (literally, “between narrow straits”) in Hebrew. This name comes from a verse in the Book of Lamentations, which is traditionally read on Tisha B’Av:

“Judah has gone into exile under affliction And under harsh servitude; She dwells among the nations, But she has found no rest; All her pursuers have overtaken her In the midst of distress.”

Lamentations 1:3

“The three weeks of mourning begins with the fast of Shivah Asar B’Tammuz (meaning the 17th day of the Hebrew month, Tammuz), which was instituted to mark the breach of the Jerusalem walls during the Babylonian siege in 586 BCE. According to tradition, it also marks a number of other tragedies that befell the Jewish people after that day, including the halting of daily temple sacrifices and the burning of the Torah after the Babylonian invasion, and the erection of idols in the Temple during the Roman occupation. It is also considered the day on which Moses broke the first set of tablets containing the Ten Commandments after coming down Mt. Sinai to discover the people worshiping the golden calf.”

Why am I bringing this up now? Israel is in the throes of a coup. Ehud Barak and his cronies hate Benjamin Netanyahu and anyone who wants Israel to take possession of Judea and Samaria. They are using the judicial branch of Israel and especially the Supreme Court to force evil decisions on the State of Israel. The land of Israel and the prophecies regarding Israel getting her land is at the heart of this dispute! Here is how one American Synagogue talked about the Knesset decision today.

“Yet today, we have been feeling a rift in that unity, as the Knesset — Israel’s Parliament — voted to abolish the Reasonableness Doctrine. “This doctrine permits the court to intervene in government or municipal decisions or ministerial appointments and appointments to other public offices on grounds that the government hasn’t weighed all the relevant considerations, or was inappropriately biased. It is a primary instrument to protect citizens from arbitrary decisions that disregard the law and threaten our rights. Its cancellation means there will be no way to challenge decisions in cases such as conflict of interest, corruption, or a flawed process that violate civil and human rights. This is the first step in the government’s legislative assault on the judiciary that will gravely harm the rights of Liberal Jews, women, LGBTQ+ people, and Israeli Palestinians. The government continues to do so despite fierce opposition and mass demonstrations by Israelis representing every segment of Israeli society.”

The problem with what the Rabbi is saying is that the ‘Reasonable Doctrine’ is the leftist doctrine. It is a way for the court to stop any decision the left doesn’t like. This is why the people voted in large numbers to throw out the last government and put Netanyahu back in. He ran on overturning the Reasonable Doctrine and then the Knesset voted 64 to 0 to overturn the doctrine. This was a big win for good government. The left always tries to use the courts to get their way because they cannot win at the ballot box. They also do not talk about the huge numbers of people who are protesting for the overturn of the doctrine. The American media will not show you the over 100,000 people marching in Jerusalem supporting the overturn of the evil doctrine. Legislating from the bench was halted in Israel and I wish we would do that in America!

Here is how one of the enemies of Israel responded to the division in Israel. “Hezbollah’s Nasrallah: ‘The worst day in the history of Israel’ Terror group chief continues to mock Israel amid judicial reform upheaval; ‘There was a time when it was believed that Israel could not be defeated, and that its army was invincible.’ “There was a time when it was believed that Israel could not be defeated, and that its army was invincible. Many countries in the region considered its threat as an undeniable fact that cannot be removed,” said the head of the Shiite terror organization in Lebanon. In a sermon, Nasrallah stated, “This specific day is the worst day in the history of Israel, as some Israelis testify, and this day sets the country on a path toward disappearance.”

The enemies of Israel are salivating over the attack of the leftist Israeli’s over the Jews who believe that Israel should take possession of Judea and Samaria. Netanyahu’s coalition party is determined to take possession of the land and Satan is scared once again that God will fulfill prophecy! Joe OBiden got into the act by condemning Israel for the vote.

“Unprecedented and Inappropriate’: Sen. Tom Cotton Slams Biden Statement on Israeli Judicial Reform. “Joe Biden’s meddling in Israel’s internal politics is unprecedented and inappropriate,” Cotton said in a statement to The Algemeiner. “He has no business telling one of our most important allies how to govern their own country.” The bill, which bars Israel’s high court from using a standard allowing it to strike down any administrative action that it deems “unreasonable,” passed 64-0 after the opposition members of the 120-seat Knesset abstained from the vote. Israeli politicians have previously condemned Biden’s comments about the judicial reforms, with one member of the Knesset going so far as to write a letter to Congress in March urging Representatives to prevent Biden from repeating his “problematic statements” in the future.” 

The left lies constantly about this bill and here is a response from people with a level head: “Judge Alex Stein, who “commented that this feature of the judiciary allows the judge to step into the shoes of the executive branch.” “The new reasonability has definitely harmed the ability of the executive branch to manage their steps,” added Rothman, “thereby harming the principle of the separation of powers.” He noted that this created “an acute democratic deficit since the court gave itself the power to extend this authority to appointments in the executive branch, something with no equal in the world. A different, effective solution is required.” We Won!! 

After the vote, people were ecstatic that they have fixed a wrong. Imagine if anytime a president signed a bill or hired someone in the government that the court had a right to stop it! The Supreme Court of Israel was known to attack any appointment by Netanyahu and kick them out of the government. They did not like anyone he appointed so they attacked them all and this made the executive branch useless. Imagine we passed a law in congress and the Supremes did not like it. They would rule that it was wrong and they would disallow the law. The Supremes of Israel became the totalitarian rulers of Israel and the left loved it. Now the left is losing some power and the leftists in America are besides themselves!

This is important because it is happening the day before Ninth of Av. It should be a day of mourning for Israel because so many in Israel hate the truth and love every evil they can think of! The Lord raised up some Jews who are standing in the gap for the nation. They are falling in line with what God said He would do for His nation. This is encouraging as I see the left throw a fit like a spoiled brat. It reminds me of the response of the news outlets when Trump won the presidency…they could not stop crying and threatening etc. President Biden In the meantime curses Israel every chance he can get. Here is an example, always remember, don’t listen to what they say, look at what they do!

“He’s not usually known for truthfulness, but in June Iran’s Supreme Leader Khamenei tweeted an honest, straightforward statement about what he considers the golden key for his homicidal proxies in Israel. “The continually growing authority of resistance groups in the West Bank is the key to bringing the Zionist enemy to its knees, and this of course must be continued. That’s a statement we should take seriously. Also in June, a more than two-billion-dollar work-around by President Biden came to light. It amounts to a windfall for Khamenei to bolster Iran-backed terror in Jenin, a lawless Palestinian city located in Israel’s biblical heartland. Reuters reported on June 10 that in secret, Biden worked to unfreeze an economic sanction and authorized the transfer of $2.7 billion to Iran via Iraq, which owes Iran for electricity and gas imports, in order to secure the freedom of American prisoners held by Iran.” 

When I first read about this despicable behavior by the president and his woke politics, I prayed that God would protect Israel from this anti-Semitic behavior. President Obama gave 150 billion dollars to Iran to set up the Gog Magog prophecy and now Joe Obiden is adding fuel to the fire. Notice how the leader of Iran is giddy about the prospects of bringing Israel to her knees. Joe Obiden and his anti-Semitic crowd are also giddy to bring Israel to her knees. The hatred shown by our political class towards Pro Israel and Pro One State solution people rises to the level war. Iran promises war and God predicts war, it is sad that the United States government under Joe Obiden agrees with the Iranians of bringing Israel to her knees. Obiden also is pushing a coup in Israel through Ehud Barak!

“The police will determine whether the calls for civil disobedience by Ehud Barak and Yair Golan constitute sedition and will hand over their conclusions to the State Prosecutors Office in the next several days. Under Barak he tried to give away most of Judea and Samaria during his time as Prime Minister in 2000. Israel agreed in principle to give up its sovereignty in parts of Jerusalem’s Old City, including part of the Temple Mount, during peace negotiations with the Palestinians 23 years ago, according to a newly declassified document.

The Israel State Archives on Sunday published Jerusalem’s official response to then-US president Bill Clinton’s Israeli-Palestinian peace proposal in 2000, the Ynet news site reported. The document also showed that Israel under left-wing prime minister Ehud Barak demanded eight percent of the West Bank — home to 80% of Israeli settlers and some Palestinians — without any land swap in that territory, while a land swap in the Gaza Strip — which at that point included some 20 Israeli settlements, home to some 7,000 Israelis — would be no more than 2%.” 

This same Ehud Barak leads the leftist political class in Israel who want to divide the land of Israel and give the Palestinians more of Judea and Samaria and give Iran more room to attack Israel. They cry peace, peace when there is no peace! God will not let this happen because His Word says so. Ezekiel 38-39 teaches us that the world will respond to God’s protection of Israel with astonishment.  Here is what the newspapers will say when God delivers Israel:

“Then they will know that I am the LORD their God because I made them go into exile among the nations, and then gathered them again to their own land; and I will leave none of them there any longer.”

Ezekiel 39:28

World War Three?

Prophecy Update: World moving towards war.         7/12/2023

“Why do the nations rage and the peoples devise a vain thing?” Psalm 2:1

Conflict is rising towards a World War Three scenario. China threatens the whole world including the USA, Taiwan, Japan, and the Philippines. China, Russia, Iran, and North Korea are in an alliance that stands against NATO. China promised Russia to fight with her against the USA. North Korea will do whatever they are told. Their great desire is to destroy America. Iran has been chanting “Death to America” for 45 years. The two vain things the elites push are every form of immorality and climate change. The worship of the earth is front and center as the idol of the day! NATO is preparing to go to war at the same time China is planning on attacking America. America is doing a completely vain thing in punishing Israel for building homes in Judea and Samaria, the Biblical heartland. All of this is Bible prophecy falling into place!

The biblical scenario for the end times includes an army from Europe, the Revived Roman Empire. Where is America in that scenario? Is it strange to you that NATO wishes to be an international military coalition, threatening every part of the globe while the European Union does not have an army? The USA dominates NATO.  Why are the armies of Europe in NATO and not in their own European Union army? Why did Macron promise an EU army without America several years ago?

“French President Emmanuel Macron has warned that Europeans cannot be protected without a “true, European army”, as he marks the centenary of the World War One Armistice. “I want to build a real security dialogue with Russia, which is a country I respect, a European country – but we must have a Europe that can defend itself on its own without relying only on the United States.” 

“The fourth beast shall be a fourth kingdom on earth, which shall be different from all other kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, trample it and break it in pieces.”

 Daniel 7:23

The question I have is will the EU and NATO armies unite to be the huge army the Antichrist will use in the last days? The original Roman Army was formidable and covered the Middle East, Northern Africa and most of Europe. Daniel 7 and Revelation 6 tell us that Antichrist is coming with awesome power and an army conquering! The army that currently exists in Europe, at the moment, is weak and ineffectual and not ready for prime time. Many in the European Union will not fight for Ukraine!

“Last February, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz announced that the country was going to invest substantially in its military. But not much has happened since then. And now Defense Minister Christine Lambrecht has been replaced. A war is raging in Europe and the evening talk shows on Russian state television include “experts” fantasizing about nuclear attacks on European capitals. The Russia policy Germany followed for the last several decades is in shambles and European security architecture for the foreseeable future will have to be designed to oppose Russia and not to include it.” 

I can say with great confidence that since the fall of the Soviet Union, Europe has not invested in their militaries. They want peace and they do not want to fight. The antiwar movement is big in Europe. They are like the pacifists of the 1920’s and 1930’s. This gave Hitler the open door he needed to build an awesome army. The antichrist will do the same at some point. This fact makes the next article surprising:

“Colossal increase in NATO forces for conflict with Russia – 400,000 soldiers on maximum alert! – Moscow: It’s the Barbarossa plan! NATO will adopt three regional defense plans at its summit in Vilnius, the alliance’s secretary-general, Jens Stoltenberg, told a news conference.

“At the summit, we will take further important steps to strengthen our deterrence and defense. With three new regional defense plans, to address the two main threats to our Alliance: Russia and terrorism,” he pointed out. “To execute these plans, NATO is placing 300,000 troops on maximum alert, including significant air and naval combat power ,” the NATO chief stressed. NATO’s infrastructure has almost reached Russia’s borders, and the alliance’s leadership is increasing forces in the territories bordering the Russian Federation.

In this respect, the coordination of the so-called response plan to a possible attack by Russia is more reminiscent of Hitler’s Barbarossa plan. NATO does not stop proclaiming the need to impose a military defeat on the Russian Federation. And in some countries – members of the bloc are already talking openly about the need to declare war on Russia,” the Russians conclude.   

As NATO meets in Lithuania today and tomorrow, they are attempting to bring the 31 NATO countries together to admit Ukraine to their party. Where are they getting 300 thousand soldiers? What 400 thousand are on alert? They promised this same thing in 2022 and nothing came of it. I can’t see the European nations sending in 300 thousand troops. This would be a seven fold increase over what they currently have. This is bluster and Russia is calling their bluff! Germany said it would send 3,500 but they would stay in Germany! HuH….these guys are not serious. It is bluster and Russia knows that they have them by the neck.

 Since 2008, the 31 countries have voted NO to the Ukrainians joining NATO. The leftist elites want to force Ukraine into NATO illegally. They could not do it for 15 years but now……they will cheat to accomplish war with Russia. Europeans do not want war with Russia and the elites want war with Russia. Joe Biden is going to have a hard time convincing Europeans to increase military assistance to Ukraine because they are out of money, bullets, and missiles! Europe has spent their money on leftist policies crying peace, peace, while peace does not exist. If the USA is so concerned about the war in Ukraine, why doesn’t the Pentagon send in their own troops? We have sent in everything else minus nukes. The EU does not have an army worthy to fight:

“After Russia’s invasion, Brussels is a military player but not a military power. The war was a “big wake-up call,” said retired General Tom Middendorp, former chief of defense of the Netherlands who now heads the International Military Council on Climate and Security. While EU officials contort themselves in trying to allocate funds for defense projects, skeptics worry it’s too little to affect the balance of power in Ukraine. “Not sure [Russian President Vladimir] Putin will be really scared looking at it,” said a sarcastic EU diplomat, who spoke on condition of anonymity.” 

“Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky has been pressuring Washington for advanced warplanes, saying airpower would make it possible for Ukraine to win. But the only practical way forward with that over the next year is to operate from bases outside of Ukraine using US and possibly other NATO aircraft.”    

Ukraine does not have the ability to use American air power for the simple reason, where do they get the pilots. Zelensky is a pimp, asking for everything and nothing at the same time as he gets richer and richer and more Russians and Ukrainians die. Europe is not going to continue to fund this war!

“Is Europe really united in backing Ukraine and isolating Russia? Europe has collectively shown solidarity with Zelenskyy’s forces, but beneath the surface, divisions persist, say analysts. “What I’d call the European core has been weakened — the Franco-German axis, Italy under [former prime minister Mario] Draghi — you had a trio that saw eye-to-eye when it came to foreign policy, had similar concerns, and had always been the driver of European integration,” said George Pagoulatos, the director of the Hellenic Foundation for European and Foreign Policy, a think tank.

Draghi resigned last July after losing a confidence vote and has been replaced by the far-right eurosceptic Giorgia Meloni. Since the Russian invasion of Ukraine, NATO has quadrupled its rapid reaction forces stationed in Eastern European states to 40,000, moved more equipment there, and pledged to raise its high readiness forces to 300,000.

Europe, in contrast, pledged to form a force of 5,000 that will be operational in 2027.” 

I hope that last quote resonates with you. It means that Europe is not ready to fund, raise, or equip any army, period! The Bible says the opposite will happen. So why the disparity? I think it is happening so that Russia gets stronger so they have confidence to attack Israel. In so doing, they will be destroyed by God Himself. When that happens, Antichrist will rise in Europe and they will take over. The European Union is the foundation of the Fourth Reich, the revived Roman Empire. Just when things couldn’t get worse, they got worse: Joe Biden announced that the USA is sending in cluster bombs which are banned in 120 countries!

“Statements made by National Security Council spokesman John Kirby on the Sunday news shows have been seized upon by the Kremlin as a clear demonstration the US has ‘confessed to war crimes’. Kirby in a fresh interview with ABC was defending President Biden’s approving cluster bombs for Ukraine, which are banned by over 120 countries internationally for being ‘indiscriminate’ and thus more likely to result in civilian deaths. Kirby at one point told ABC that “we can all agree that more civilians have been and will continue to be killed by Russian forces… than will likely be hurt by the use of these cluster munitions.” The administration’s consistent rationale has been to say that while yes – this opens up Ukraine’s military to the greater likelihood of committing war crimes – it’s essentially OK because Russia is doing it. Other groups and activists have warned it marks an escalation which is to provide greater dangers to civilians now and in the future. Skeptics of NATO policy have accused the White House and the Western allies of seeking to weaken Russia by “fighting to the last Ukrainian” while sabotaging peace negotiations. Kirby’s words bolster that thesis.” 

The weapons sent to Ukraine are increasing in strength. Now, America is desperate for more war as all of the weapons and the training of the Ukrainian army has not produced the results they wanted. France is following our lead as Paris is bleeding. They decided to send missiles that can hit Moscow. This is inviting a larger war.

“Emmanuel Macron Defies United States Warning And Authorizes Sending SCALP Long-Range Missiles To Ukraine In Fight Against Russia. According to weapons company MBDA, ‘Storm Shadow / SCALP is the air-launched long range, conventionally armed, deep strike weapon, designed to meet the demanding requirements of pre-planned attacks against high value fixed or stationary targets, giving unrivalled deep strike capability.’ World leaders are right now praising Macron for his bold move, reinforcing his self-perceived role as leader of all Europe who is ‘ruling as the god Jupiter’. You know, one of these days, and it’s just my opinion, but someone is going to ask Macron to run the United Nations, run the EU, or create a Ten Nation Confederacy. Why do I think that? Because every thing he says and does, and every move he makes leads him in that direction. And in the meantime, SCALP bombs aweigh!” 

I think that this is a contest between Britain, France, and America, for who can send the deadliest weapons. The hawks in our congress will be pushing us to send in even more weapons. The Russians said this about the move:

“From our point of view, this is a mistaken decision, with serious consequences for the Ukrainian side, because naturally it will force us to take countermeasures,’ Peskov, Vladimir Putin’s long-serving chief propagandist, said. ‘I repeat our position of principle regarding such decisions (on arms deliveries): they cannot influence the course of events’ in Ukraine,’ he added.”

It is time to pray for our nation and the people in Europe. They need a revival and fast. If God does not intervene then these evil people will lead us right into World War Three! Their lust for war comes from the devil who is a murderer and a liar. Do you ever wonder where all of the deception comes from on the news outlets? It comes from the father of lies! Pray that our heavenly Father will bless us and give us the strength to make it through these days as warriors for the faith once delivered to the Saints!

Deception and the Rapture

Prophecy Update: Deception and the Rapture                      7/7/2023

At the July 4th party at my house, several people told me about the new movie that Jim Caviezel plays in called ‘Sound of Freedom.’ From the trailer it says the movie is about: “The incredible true story of a former government agent turned vigilante who embarks on a dangerous mission to rescue hundreds of children from sex …” The press, media, mafia, organized crime, governments, and people are in full blown rebellion against God regarding this topic. The amount of deception from the United States government alone regarding the sex trafficking sin is astounding. Our southern border and Ukraine are hotbeds for human trafficking. Human trafficking is modern day slavery protected by government officials helping organized crime do its evil deeds.

“Everyone utters lies to his neighbor.” Psalm 12:2

Psalm 12 highlights for us the nation that has leaders who have rebelled against God and have come up with deceptive ways to manipulate everyone. Our nation is described in vs. 1,

“For the choir director; upon an eight-stringed lyre. A Psalm of David. Help, LORD, for the godly man ceases to be, For the faithful disappear from among the sons of men.”

There is a time prophesied that causes the people of God to cry out against all of the lawlessness. David is experiencing the rebellion of King Saul who is trying to kill him. Where are the righteous who will stand for the truth? This is a prophecy because the same conditions exist in the end times. In vs. 8 the Lord highlights the end times prophecy with this phrase: “When vileness is exalted among the sons of men.” Vileness is exalted in the capitals of the world!

 David experienced this in Israel proper in his day, the text of lawlessness in Psalm 12 repeats prophetic teaching regarding the last days. Jesus described the end times as times like the days of Noah and Lot. Those days described are                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  violent and immoral. That is our day.

Psalm 12 highlights deception and pride as markers for the battle we face. Human trafficking is modern day slavery. The beast system coming to the world as described in the prophecies of Daniel and Revelation by necessity have to be deceiving. Deception is a function of “suppressing the truth in unrighteousness.” Deception causes words to be toxic. God says in Psalm 12:6 that His words are pure words.

“The words of the LORD are pure words; As silver tried in a furnace on the earth, refined seven times. “

Psalm 12:6

When you read your Bible, the Word of God transforms you, gives you light, and the Holy Spirit supernaturally guides you into all of the truth. When the unbelieving world rejects the Word of God and the ethics, which come from God, it brings death. The movements afoot in our country lead to death. As David mourned the loss of godly men and the faithful disappearing in his culture, he did so in a prophetic way, mirroring what we are facing today. Here how this is being manifested on our southern border each day:

“The Human Trafficking Crisis At The Border Is Coming To Your Hometown: August 30, 2022, Hundreds of thousands of migrants are crossing into our country illegally every day, and our border has never been less secure. When Biden announced changes to the policies at our border soon after taking office, millions of migrants flooded our borders to take advantage of the lax rules, entering and disappearing without a trace. Particularly, human trafficking has become one of the largest issues facing our border security, with men, women, and children being exploited and forced into labor against their will. Considered the modern form of slavery, human trafficking has become one of the world’s most lucrative businesses, bringing in an estimated $150 billion annually for evil predators.” 

“Arizona Whistleblowers Expose the Human Sex Trafficking Business at the US Border. A new documentary titled “Cages – Epic Human Trafficking Truth” features whistleblowers from Arizona who say that human sex trafficking involves extortion, rape of men, women and children, and murder. Vicious crimes occur daily at the US Mexican border as a result of Biden’s open border policies. Migrants are willing to commit serious crimes to pay off cartels. The US Government is working together with Mexican drug cartels to allow this sex trafficking enterprise to flourish inside the United States.”    

“Because of the devastation of the afflicted, because of the groaning of the needy, Now I will arise,” says the LORD; “I will set him in the safety for which he longs.”

Psalm 12:5

I had a spiritual encounter with Psalm 12:5 when the Lord spoke to me about the rapture. The conditions spoken about in this verse mirror the day in which the rapture will take place. God was very clear that in the midst of national rebellion, He will set in safety His people. David experienced this from the Lord in His day. We will experience this in our day when Jesus comes to get us!

How do we know that we are living in the time that the rapture can take place? There are three reasons.

First: the rapture is imminent. “From the very earliest days of the church, the apostles and first-generation Christians nurtured an earnest expectation and fervent hope that Christ might suddenly return at any time to gather His church to heaven. James, writing what was probably the earliest of the New Testament epistles, expressly told his readers that the Lord’s return was imminent:

“Be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently for it until it receives the early and latter rain. You also be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand. Do not grumble against one another, brethren, lest you be condemned. Behold, the Judge is standing at the door!”

James 5:7–9

Second: The rapture is not only imminent it precedes the Tribulation period. The second truth regarding the rapture is that it will come before the world is judged in the seven-year tribulation period. A key passage about the fact we are not going through the tribulation period is 2 Thess.2:1-3

“Now we request you, brethren, with regard to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, that you not be quickly shaken from your composure or be disturbed either by a spirit or a message or a letter as if from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come. Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction”

2 Thess. 2:1-3

It is clear from the context that the Thessalonians were taught that they are in the tribulation period because of all the persecution they were experiencing. Paul is very clear that that is not the case. They in fact had not missed the rapture of the church; Paul taught the rapture doctrine in First Thessalonians. The final wrath of God on the earth will come at a time outlined for us in the book of Revelation. We are not in the tribulation today as they were not in their day. The rapture is described in the phrase: “The coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him”  “The day of the Lord” is the day described constantly in the Bible as a unique time period that we call the Tribulation.

The seven years of the final judgment of God on the earth is described for us in Zephaniah:

“Near is the great day of the LORD, Near and coming very quickly; Listen, the day of the LORD!

In it the warrior cries out bitterly. A day of wrath is that day, A day of trouble and distress, A day of destruction and desolation, A day of darkness and gloom, A day of clouds and thick darkness, A day of trumpet and battle cry Against the fortified cities And the high corner towers. I will bring distress on men So that they will walk like the blind, Because they have sinned against the LORD;

And their blood will be poured out like dust And their flesh like dung.”


The Tribulation period is a dark day, Satan will be given enough rope to hang himself, the people of the world will be given room to rebel against God, and the rise of the antichrist will give these evil people the leader they sought after all along. God is very clear that the Tribulation is not for the church, it is for the judgment of people who refused to bow to the Lordship of Jesus. That leads us to the third reason we believe the rapture is very close:

Third: the conditions for the beast system are ripe. The UN and the woke leaders of our country are pushing for the one world government described in the scriptures. If that system is coming quickly, then Jesus is coming quickly to remove us from the earth. We will not be here for the rise of antichrist, we will be with Jesus celebrating when He opens the first seal. The first seal of Revelation 6 reveals the antichrist to the world. Consider this article regarding the UN:

“The UN Has Come Up With A Shockingly Insidious Plan For Global Domination: Under a shocking new plan that is scheduled to be adopted two months before the U.S. presidential election in 2024, all it would take is some sort of a major “global shock” for the United Nations to literally take authority over the entire planet.  I realize that this may sound like the plot to a really bad science fiction movie, but this is actually what is being proposed, and the Biden administration is fully behind this insidious plan. Although there are numerous radical proposals included in the agenda, perhaps none are more important than the U.N. plan for a new “emergency platform,” a stunning proposal to give the U.N. significant powers in the event of future “global shocks,” such as another worldwide pandemic.” 

Could the global shock the UN is anticipating be the rapture of the church? They mention several things in their proposal for a global shock: “Well, the policy paper tells us that a future pandemic, a “major event in outer space” or even “unforeseen risks” would all qualify…” What would a major event in outer space be? I think the rapture of the church will be the event they are anticipating.

The globalists are doing so much damage to the earth at the moment that it is inconceivable to me that the UN has the evil boldness to ask for more authority over the earth. That authority will be given to them when Jesus opens the first seal and then we know at that point when we are coming back with Jesus. Seven years is all they get, Jesus will fill the earth with the wrath of the Lamb! Israel will be saved and we will return with Jesus to set up His kingdom that will last for one thousand years! We have so much to look forward to!

The rapture teaching in the scriptures is meant to encourage us. God says, “comfort one another with these words” He calls it the Blessed Hope, Jesus said “do not be troubled, I will come and get you that where I am you will be.” We are the light of the world, shine your light bright this week because Jesus is coming soon. Maranatha!

Prophecy Updates

Russia and the Judgment of God

Prophecy Update: Russia and the judgment of God              6/28/2023

The Russians have made a strategic move to go to war with NATO and the United States. They have pulled their diplomats out of the USA and they moved tactical nukes into Belarus. Over the weekend, the American press was giddy over the prospect that Putin was going to be kicked out or killed in a coup attempt. I did not believe it because nothing our press said made sense and did not fit what I knew about the Wagner Group or the Russian military.

“Son of man, set your face toward Gog of the land of Magog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him and say, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD, “Behold, I am against you, O Gog, prince of Rosh, Meshech and Tubal.”

Ezekiel 38:2-3

This is important because what happened has fueled the Russians to move forward with their plan to attack Israel. This attack is prophesied in Ezekiel 38-39.

“Luongo: Was Prigozhin’s Rebellion Live Or Memorex? After this weekend’s whirlwind events in Russia we’re left with a lot more questions than answers about what happened with Wagner Group’s Yevgeny Prigozhin’s abortive rebellion against Moscow. Let’s start with what we know. Prigozhin’s been running his mouth for months about lack of support from the Russian Ministry of Defense (MoD) while his boys did all the heavy lifting in Bakhmut. His issues with Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu are pretty well known. It’s also likely that there’s zero love loss between Prigozhin and General Valeri Gerasimov either.

Pissing contests between military commanders are not unheard of, after all.  

Since the beginning of the war, Prigozhin has pushed the Russian military to use greater force. Putin has refused up until now because he has been trying to draw the Americans into the wider war so he can kill NATO. He is aware of the goal of the Americans and the British to destroy Russia and steal her resources.

“Now, let’s bring in the external factor here, the enemy, NATO. But really it is the US/UK neoconservatives who have been the ones spending every waking hour punching Russia in the face with blatant escalatory moves to try and draw Russia and Putin offside. Nordstream 2, the Kerch Strait Bridge bombing, the staged massacre at Bucha, the Kakhovka dam explosion, the attacks at Belgorod, the arms smuggling into Odessa under the auspice of the ‘Grain deal…” The list is nearly endless.”

This article is clear that NATO and the USA have been provoking Russia by violating Russia’s Monroe Doctrine. The Monroe Doctrine is the American policy that no nation is allowed to bring their armed forces to the border of the USA. This doctrine was the basis of the Cuban Missile Crises in 1962. After the fall of the Soviet Union, there was no need to have NATO anymore. Here is a little of that history:

“To understand Russia’s claims of betrayal, it is necessary to review the reassurances then US secretary of state James A. Baker made to former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev during a meeting on February 9, 1990. In a discussion on the status of a reunited Germany, the two men agreed that NATO would not extend past the territory of East Germany, a promise repeated by NATO’s secretary general in a speech on May 17 that same year in Brussels. In addition, these promises were made orally and were never recorded in a treaty,” recalled Olivier Kempf, associate researcher at the Foundation for Strategic Research. “The turning point of NATO enlargement came much later, in 1995, at the request of the Eastern European countries.”

NATO existed as the security alliance against the Soviet Union and the Warsaw Pact. When the Soviet Union fell, NATO became the tool of the globalist elites to take over Russia. The US provides major financial support for NATO and the European countries loved this flow of money into their economies. When Trump tried to force the Europeans to pay more for their security, the elites of Europe attacked the USA. Europe needs to weaken the USA for the rise of antichrist and they need to stop American support for Israel.

Let me ask some questions so that you can see the biblical mandates that cover our situation. When will God bring NATO to justice for pushing abortion, immorality, Days of Lot agenda’s, and endless wars? When will God bring Russia to justice for her abortions, communism, murder of Jews, and wickedness that they perpetrate? Ezekiel 38-39 gives a detailed military and political intelligence briefing, which teaches that the West does not stop Russia from attacking Israel.

If the West cannot stop Russia from attacking Israel in the near future, they are proving the proof of this prophecy in their inability to stop Russia from attacking Ukraine. The Gog Magog prophecy predicts the rise of a Russian dictator who is building a coalition of nations to come and attack Israel in the last days. Putin may be that very dictator! The coalition is already printing flags that are appearing on Israel’s border. A flag with four nations is flying in Syria and in Israel and it has the banners of Russia, Iran, Syria, and Hezbollah. As Iran funds Hezbollah, Hamas, and many other groups readying themselves for war in Israel, they are being assisted militarily and financially by Russia! Russia and Iran are at the forefront of the Gog Magog prophecy!

“In my worldview MI6 and the British Defense Ministry spend all day, everyday coming up with a new way to justify a wider conflict between NATO and Russia. The destruction and balkanization of Russia has, after all, been their raison d’etre for more than 300 years. Moreover, things are accelerating into the July 11-12th NATO Summit, where it is obvious the neocons are pushing for a statement or policy change that will be the ultimate punch in the mouth for Putin. It will be one he cannot ignore because it will violate a major red line which he has laid out with stunning clarity.”

Already we have two senators announcing a policy of enacting Article 5 against Russia. Article Five is the NATO security agreement that an attack on one is an attack of all. This security agreement means that all of NATO should go to war with Russia, thus WW3! Europe hopes that Russia attacks America so they can bring in a new kingdom, the beast kingdom, the government of antichrist. They need America to be destroyed so they can rise. Many Christian authors have written books and articles on a future war with Russia so I am saying nothing new. It is the timing of these things that is becoming clear. The Biden Administration is actively supplying Iran with the means and support for becoming a nuclear state. If you curse Israel you will be cursed. The USA is cursing Israel by helping Iran destroy Israel. God will use Iran and Russia to destroy us with nukes if we continue to help Iran get nukes.

In the United States today, there is no law, only the interest of the Biden Administration. The FBI and the press are there to protect the administration and her immoral interests from its ‘enemies. Its enemies are Christians and whoever thinks the wrong thoughts and says the wrong thing. Our brothers and sisters in Christ have been fired, kicked off youtube, facebook, and a host of other media platforms all for speaking out about the immoral society we live in. God is judging this country for these sins!

“Freedom of speech and the rule of law are the greatest guards against tyranny. Destroy the media and destroy the rule of law, and you transform free societies into totalitarian tyrannies.”

“Michigan House passes “Hate Speech” bill to FINE AND JAIL parents, teachers, pastors, and politicians who speak the truth. This means that parents, teachers, pastors, activists, and politicians can be charged with “hate crimes” if their speech upsets someone who is weak-minded and vindictive. For example, the victims of these new “hate crimes” can claim that a pastor caused “severe mental anguish” because the pastor spoke a basic truth from the Bible. A parent who speaks out at a school board meeting could be accused of a “hate crime” if they exposed transgender pornography in their child’s classroom. Under this Orwellian law, the possibilities for abuse are endless.” If this hate speech bill becomes law, left-wing prosecutors could go after anyone they disagree with, bringing felonious “hate crime” charges against speech they didn’t like.”

This type of behavior will usher in the antichrist government. The UN is pushing global government and control of all thought and belief.

“A Global Digital Compact” – UN promoting censorship, social credit & much more. To sum up, the Digital Global Compact is a piece of globalist legislation serving the final aim of globalist policy: Control of all aspects of life, achieved by inserting a digital filter between people and reality.

Banking, communication, media consumption, shopping. Every interaction you have will be through a digital membrane which can both monitor your exchanges with the world and – if deemed necessary – deny you access to that world.”

Here is the clincher to the story in Russia. The Wagner group turned west and went into Belarus with a supply of tactical nuclear bombs from Russia. They could sell those warheads to groups who will sneak them into Europe and the USA and do some damage. They can use them to attack targets in Poland, Ukraine, and Germany. As this was happening, North Korea held a rally to announce their decision to destroy the USA.

“North Korea holds rally with promise to ‘annihilate’ US. Rallies fell on 73rd anniversary of start of Korean War. North Korea held mass rallies across the nation Saturday, which marked the “day of struggle against U.S. imperialism,” when government leaders promised to “annihilate the enemy,” according to its propaganda outlet.”

Iran, North Korea, Russia, and China all have missiles powerful enough to reach anywhere in the USA. All of these states see America as the existential threat to their existence and all have vowed to destroy us. This insane administration is doing all it can to help Iran procure nuclear bombs so they can stand against Israel. Iran says they want to destroy both Israel and the USA. Can this all be happening because the USA has forgotten God?

“The wicked will return to Sheol, Even all the nations who forget God.” Psalm 9:17

“Now consider this, you who forget God, Or I will tear you in pieces, and there will be none to deliver.” Psalm 50:22

“Bless the Lord, O my soul, And forget none of His benefits” Psalm 103:2

A bizarre side thought, Canada is burning and her smoke is covering northern USA. Cleveland is under a warning this morning from all of the smoke. A prophetic harbinger in my eyes.

Alexander Solzhenitsyn tells the story when he was a little boy as Russia became communist. Someone asked, ‘why is all of this happening to us? The other person said, ‘because we have forgotten God.’ Why is America failing so badly? We are failing because we have forgotten God! As we have attacked and left the Christian worldview since the 1960’s it has gotten worlse and worse. Pray we will turn back to the Lord, revival is in the air!
