Signs of the End-Times (9/21/17)

September 21, 2017

Signs of the End Times

As the Signs of the Times newsletter has evolved and been made available through multiple platforms (email, blog, Twitter, Facebook and website), it is being used for multiple purposes. Initially developed for prayer groups, it is also now trusted as a news source. Therefore, I have limited my personal commentary and will offer my observations from time to time in this new, adjunct report which is exclusively focused on the end times.

End-Time Update

When I was meditating about recent events, it came to me that the world is going to the pits! That got me to thinking about what that expression meant:

  • The dictionary says the pits are “any place of pain and turmoil.” That certainly described a lot of what is going on in the world today

Then the Lord told me that this is an anacronym for what lies ahead

  • P = Prepare – We are currently in a window of time giving us time to prepare. But prepare for what?
    • Not just to survive, but to help and save people
    • Preparing spiritually is more important than anything else, but also physical/emotional/mental
    • We have to conquer fear, hate, anger, depression, etc. or they will bring us down (Prov. 24:10)
  • I = Intensification – As the end-days evolve, everything will intensify
    • g. weather, earthquakes, war, hostility, persecution, murder, etc.
  • T = Tribulation – It’s not here yet, but it’s coming
    • But first, there will be a major war, followed by a peace pact with many signers (Daniel 9:27) ushering in the “man of lawlessness” (2Thess 2:3) and the one-world government (Rev. 13)
  • S = Salvation – i.e. the rapture, but not before we go through a lot of tribulation

So, where are we now?  We are in the time period Jesus called ‘the beginning of sorrows’ (Matthew 24:8)

  • The recent solar eclipse over the United States was a sign – one which drew a line across the U.S. from Oregon to South Carolina
    • Genesis 1:14: And, God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night. And let them be for signs and for seasons, and for days and years”
  • But even more so is the next eclipse to come in 7 years. Usually, there are many more years between eclipses in which a total black out of the sun occurs across the U.S.
    • Seven is an important Biblical number indicating divine completion
    • The next eclipse will draw another line across the U.S. from Texas to Maine. The crossing point of the two eclipse paths is St. Louis
  • In essence, the two lines form an X over the U.S. So, what does this mean?
    • I believe it means that America has 7 more years to get right with God or else it is finished as a world power
    • So, let’s get praying as never before!

Where is the USA Seen in Scripture?

It is quite revealing that Scripture says nothing about the world’s greatest superpower – unless it is the Babylon in Revelation. Short of that, it seems as though the USA is set to play a limited role in the end times.

  • However, there is one Scripture to consider. Most end-time prophecy is symbolic in nature. The U.S. came out of England whose crest symbol is that of a lion. The symbol for the USA has been the eagle. We see these two symbols in Daniel 7:4
    • The first was like a lion, and had eagle’s wings. I watched till its wings were plucked off; and it was lifted up from the earth and made to stand on two feet like a man, and a man’s heart was given to it.
    • This would indicate that the USA will have its wings plucked off and become an inconsequential player in the end-time scenario

Latest Signs

  • Extreme Weather (Harvey/Irma/Maria)
    • Extreme end-time weather is prophesied in Daniel 9:26b, Ezekiel 38:22, Revelation 8:7, 11:19, 16:8,11)
  • The “Deep State” – run in U.S. by Obama – under the New World Order
    • Bureaucrats and judges have been put in place to tear down Christianity and build up a secular humanistic one-world government (Revelation 13)
  • Wars & Rumors of Wars – there have always been wars and rumors of wars, but never involving so many nations with nuclear weapons (U.S., Russia, China, Israel, Pakistan, India, North Korea and soon Iran)
    • The volatile situation with North Korea or a confrontation with Iran could easily trigger a world war
  • Political/military alignment of Russia with Iran (Persia) – as was prophesied in Ezekiel 38-39 prior to a worldwide war against Israel
  • LGBTQ Agenda – Throughout much of the western world, so-called ‘progressives’ have successfully been undermining God’s ordained family structure or one man and one woman
  • Agenda 21/30 – The cause of sustainability and climate change (global warming) are being used as the foundation to form the one-world government of Revelation 13
  • Technocracy – Science over Religion – Technology has become the means by which the New World Order will be established, but technology will give the technocrats control over our lives
    • Internet of Things (e.g. appliances, heat, etc.) – Smart Cities – Smart Meters – Smart Homes – sounds good until they are employed against us
  • Increased Persecution of all things Christian – With little fanfare in the media, an average of 900,000 Christians have been killed per year for their faith over the past decade
  • Digitizing money – The technocrats want to do away with cash – India has been their trial horse where all large denominations have been outlawed
    • With our money simply being blips in a computer somewhere, it will be very easy to erase all the funds of Christians who refuse to take the mark of the beast
  • Computer Chips are being put into people now– employees, medical data, animals – RFID chips
    • These chips (or something similar) will be the mark of the beast without which people will not be able to buy or sell – Taking the mark of the beast will forfeit your salvation (Rev. 13:17, 14:11)
  • Tolerance of everything but Christianity
  • Calling good evil and evil good – Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness (Isaiah 5:20)
  • Itching Ears – For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions. (2Timothy 4:3)
  • Self-Centered, Self-Indulgent, Self-Righteous – But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. (2Timothy 3:1-5)

2017 Presidential Election

October 25, 2016

Donald Trump will not win the Presidential election for two reasons:

  1. The New World Order won’t allow it.
    1. The globalists will do anything and everything in their power to prevent Trump from winning – from planting lies, to controlling the liberal media, even to assassination
    2. President Obama as well as the Bushes and Clintons have been backed and controlled by the global elite, but not Trump
  2. God won’t interfere because he is allowing His prophecies to be fulfilled
    1. Revelation 13 says the one-world government being set up by Satan will happen despite all the prayers of the saints
    2. In fact, Revelation 13:7 says the anti-Christ (beast) will overcome the saints
    3. All of this to fulfill Daniel’s prophecy (8:23) that sin must reach its fullness and usher in the anti-Christ before the Lord Jesus returns to take possession of His Kingdom
