Prophecy Update: Lawlessness covers the Land. 8/10/22

I have been thinking alot about the rapture of the church and what the world would be like when the rapture takes place. Lawlessness will be manifested in ever increasing ways right before the rapture of the church. We are introduced to the concept of the rapture in Genesis 5. This is when Enoch was on the earth. 

“Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God took him.” Gen.5:24

Hebrews 11:5: “By faith Enoch was translated so that he should not see death; and he was not found, because God had translated him.” 

Right before flooding the earth, the Lord was pleased to give us an example of what will happen in the last days. Enoch was taken up bodily to heaven without experiencing death. Jesus said that the last days will be like the days of Noah. This is what Paul describes for us in I Thess.4:13-18. 

“Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord.” 

1 Thess.4:17

Like Enoch, we will be caught up to meet the Lord in the air and forever be with the Lord. The word “caught up” means to seize by force. God is going to remove people from the earth in a supernatural way before He moves on to the next step of His plan. Another example of a rapture is Elijah. According to the Bible, Enoch and Elijah are the only two people God took to heaven without them dying. 

“Suddenly a chariot of fire and horses of fire appeared and separated the two of them, and Elijah went up to heaven in a whirlwind.” 2 Kings 2:11  

Elijah was perhaps the most powerful of God’s prophets in the Old Testament. There are also prophecies of Elijah’s return during the seven year tribulation period, including Zech. 3, Malachi 4, and Revelation 11.  

Both Enoch and Elijah had to deal with lawless times. The lawless times during Enoch’s life led to the flood over the whole earth. The lawlessness of Israel led to the prophet Elijah’s rapture. When Elijah comes back, he will again deal with the lawlessness of Israel and the world!  

Enoch wrote a book and the Bible quotes some of what the Lord showed Enoch. Jude 14 says, “Now Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about these men also (false teachers) saying, Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of His saints.” Here we have a prophecy that Jesus is coming back with His saints, the church. 

A big reason for believing that the rapture is close is because of Israel. The Bible teaches that Israel operates on a seven year calendar. Israel was sent into captivity based on the failure to keep the seventh year of rest. They failed for 490 years. God told Israel they would be in captivity for 70 years for that failure. Daniel 9 takes this teaching and applies it to all of Israel’s history. God teaches us that Israel will fulfill the purpose for what God created them in 490 years. (Daniel 9:24) 483 years of this prophecy has been fulfilled, a seven year period is left of the 490 years. That is called the Tribulation period. 

‘Alas! for that day is great, There is none like it; And it is the time of Jacob’s distress, But he will be saved from it.” 

Jeremiah 30:7

Jeremiah makes it clear about the reason for this time, God is dealing with Israel, not the church. God is going to save Israel in the seven year tribulation period and then the kingdom of God will come. We live in the lawless times right before the rapture. 

“Christ’s statement in Matthew 24:12 is “…lawlessness will abound….” The Greek word translated as “lawlessness” or “iniquity” in most versions of the Bible is anomia. It means “lawlessness—without law.” The Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary defines lawless as “not regulated by or based on law; not restrained or controlled by law.” So in the last days we should expect to see increasing acts of lawlessness.”

“God is a God of order. He has planned for His world to reflect this beautiful, peaceful harmony. But when we reject Him, we lose this ability and become lawless. And this lawlessness leads to anarchy and chaos. IN PAUL’S DAY… this lawlessness was increasing. He writes the second letter to the Thessalonians to help them understand the times. He reminds them that the final end of the world will be known by the rising of the Anti-Christ, the “man of lawlessness. He had not arisen yet, but he did tell them that “the mystery of lawlessness is already at work” (1 Thessalonians 2:7). In other words, the spirit of the Lawless One that would one day come signaling the end of this world was already in the world bringing all kinds of chaos. We now live in this age.”  

The great reset people and their cronies have trained people to ignore the law and incite violence so that they can tear down the existing order so that they can ‘Build Back Better.’ This is the UN agenda 2030 goal, world government brought on by lawless chaos. The order they will impose will match the government prophesied in the book of Revelation. 

“The far left has perpetuated nationwide lawlessness and the Biden administration is complicit: Over the past year, I have spoken to law enforcement in several cities and communities across the country. I was consistently told that progressive prosecutors and a pervasive antagonism towards police stoked by the left is contributing to brutal increases in violent crime. Criminals feel emboldened by the defund-the-police movement while cops are continuously restrained by woke politicians.”  

The last few years we have seen the world drive itself towards lawlessness. It has spread across the world. Here in the United States, we saw one of the worst examples of lawlessness regarding president Trump. Trump and his supporters are a threat to their lawless ways. Here are two articles that show why they are attacking Trump:

‘Earthquake throughout the nation’: Trump candidates score big wins: Trump-backed candidates won key Republican primary contests Tuesday night in Arizona, Michigan and Kansas. And Gibbs, who was a Christian missionary in Japan, said “the power of prayer undergirding us” was the most important difference, noting he has a place on his campaign website where people can sign up to commit to pray for him and his campaign.”  

“Donald Trump Says The FBI Is Currently Conducting A Raid On His Home At Mar-A-Lago Looking For Evidence Related To January 6th Select Committee: The political persecution of President Donald J. Trump has been going on for years, with the now fully debunked Russia, Russia, Russia Scam, Impeachment Hoax #1, Impeachment Hoax #2, and so much more, it just never ends. It is political targeting at the highest level!”   

Part of the hatred concerning the former president is the same hatred that they have for anyone who believes in the constitution and has a love for this country. They have made a concerted effort to destroy anyone who is a patriot. The corruption of the Justice Department manifests itself in their protection of all of the crimes that Clinton and Hunter Biden have committed with no investigation. Yet, the FBI can act like the Gestapo against Christians, patriots, and the former president. Hillary destroyed evidence and nothing happened. The underlying problem to all of this, we have abandoned God! 


“Hundreds of thousands of US troops may face dismissal: More than 260,000 American servicemembers could be discharged due to non-compliance with vaccine mandates. The Biden administration’s strict Covid-19 vaccination mandates place more than 13% of the US’ fighting forces at risk of discharge, according to Department of Defense data updated on Wednesday.”  

As they destroy the military, it is clear that the rise of the antichrist government is getting ready to manifest itself. This means that the rapture of the church is close. How close? Only God knows the answer to that question. The evidence is piling up that we do not have that much time left. 

Everyone should remember that the technology push for transhumanism and more and more vaccines is only setting up the world for the mark of the beast. Already, the medical community is compromised by lawlessness, lying to the people and advancing the leftist agenda. The World Health Organization should be called the Satan health organization. As the government forces soldiers to get the shot, they will force all of us into their leftist agenda. What are we to do? We should give thanks in all things and we should worship the Lord who is coming to get us! Consider it all joy when you encounter various trials knowing that the testing of our faith produces endurance…. So we endure to the end as overcomers!  We keep walking in the light as He is in the light, trusting that God will use us for His purposes until the trumpet sounds. This final article is about the coming mark of the beast:

“New biometrics identity credentials have been proposed or launched around the world as government digital identity schemes continue to roll out.  From Australia to the Maldives to Uganda, governments are rolling out the WEF / UN digital IDs to usher in a global digitised police state.  A state which will police every aspect of our lives. A US congressman, Bill Foster, proposed legislation to promote verified digital ID as a means of clamping down on pandemic-related fraud garnered interest at a congressional hearing on the issue.”

Stand firm my friends, the trumpet is about to sound!

About Joe

We live in the last days and the Bible commands us to watch for the Lord’s coming. I have a keen interest in history, prophecy and current events. I read widely about political and military developments and write a weekly blog from the things I follow. My special interest is in Middle Eastern affairs.

Since I was in college, I have also studied how God judges nations. It all started in Buck Hatches’ class at Columbia Bible College in 1979.

I fell in love with God’s word and especially the prophets. The results of this interest led me to writing The ‘I’ Judgements: Four Sins that Bring about the Fall of Nations. It serves as a warning to the United States, showing biblically of what we need to repent.
