We are commanded to know the signs of the times and to be prepared to meet The Lord in the air at the catching away of the believers. The Bible teaches that the church (Jesus bride) will not be here during the period known as The Day of The Lord.
2018 Rapture? Shocking Evidence for the Timing of the Christian
'Rapture' found in Revelation 14:6 and 18:4
by Mark Lawrence
The 'rapture' is an important part of Christian doctrine, and for those of you not familiar with the Christian rapture I will summarize it's basic principles:
Throughout the Bible God threatens judgement (wrath) on sinful governments and people who refuse to follow him or his commandments.
In the 'end times' as famously portrayed in Revelation (last chapter of the Bible), these judgements finally unfold to start the period known as the "Tribulation" and result in devastating wars and natural disasters, all for the purpose of bringing God's unrepentant people to repentance, and separating the good people from the wicked and corrupt of the world.
The 'Pre-Tribulation' rapture represents God taking some of his people from the Earth before the Tribulation; these are Christians in high standing with God who do not have to suffer through his judgements of wrath that come on the world.
In recent years it has become a widespread notion that all Christians will have to suffer through the judgements that come on the world.
This is the idea behind the 'Post-Tribulation' rapture. Meaning, the rapture does not occur until after the Tribulation.
Today, I am going to put that notion to sleep once and for all.
I will show by citing an assortment of New Testament scripture, including scripture I have not seen previously cited in Pre-Tribulation vs. Post-Tribulation debates, that there are two raptures - the first is just prior to the Tribulation, and the second is at the end of the Tribulation, when Christ appears in the skies with a host of angels, and collects the survivors from across the earth.
With this article my goal is to show that the first rapture (first group of Christians who go to God's kingdom) may be shaping up fast in world events. I lay out solid evidence from scripture that will surprise a lot of people at just how imminent the rapture really is.
Revelation is happening all around us.
The 'end times' are here.
Breaking News: God Not Pleased with Christian Majority
A careful study of what God says in Revelation (chapters 2 and 3) to the seven early churches gives us some major clues as to how God views all populations of Christians.
Notice that only the Philadelphia Church (and a number of believers at the churches in Sardis and Smyrna) is without fault and has no need to "repent". They are the only church guaranteed to be spared the 'hour of trial' (Revelation 3:10).
The remaining six churches (which would mean the majority of Christians) have the need to overcome sin in order to make themselves worthy. If they do not repent and embrace full love and faith in God (as warned specifically in these letters) they MUST go through the Tribulation, a time of severe testing and persecution, "such has never been seen before or will ever be seen again".
If you believe that Chapters 2 and 3 of Revelation only
apply to the churches two thousand years ago, please note that each letter ends
with: "Anyone who has an ear should listen to what the Spirit says to
Rick Warren vs. Jesus Christ
Of course, don't ask mega-church preachers like Rick Warren, author of the 30 million copy bestseller, The Purpose Driven Life, who I believe is playing a major role in the end times apostasy of Christianity.
Why is it that Rick Warren is pushing a plan for global peace, when Jesus Christ on the other hand promises global wrath?
In the words of Jesus Christ, Rick Warren's global peace plan is destined to fail. Man will never have global peace, and Jesus made that pretty clear.
It's strange that Rick Warren thinks he can bring peace to
the nations, when this world is fast approaching God's wrath, the beginning of
the Tribulation, and the Second Coming of Christ prophecied throughout
In 1 Thessalonians, in the New Testament of the Bible, the apostle Paul talks about the 'end times' and a sudden, unexpected calamity that comes upon the world.
1 Thessalonians 5:2 - "... The Day of the Lord will come just as a thief in the night. When they say "Peace and security," then sudden destruction comes on them..."
Then a few lines down, 1 Thessalonians: 5:9 reads: "For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ."
According to Paul, when the world is saying "Peace and security", sudden destruction hits... however as then stated by Paul, believers in Christ are not 'appointed' to this wrath, which comes upon the world and starts the Tribulation, which includes the Anti-Christ ruling for 42 months and the entire period believed by many theologians to last up to 7 years.
John 14:1-3 - "Your heart must not be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in Me. In My Father's house are many dwelling places; if not, I would have told you. I am going away to prepare a place for you. If I go away and prepare a place for you, I will come back and receive you to Myself, so that where I am you may be also."
With this well known passage by Jesus, we have proof
that God has prepared a new world for his faithful believers. Of course, this
leaves us with the question: "When will faithful believers be taken
Left Behind and 666 (the Mark of the Beast)
Revelation 3:3 - Remember therefore what you have received and heard; keep it, and repent. But if you are not alert, I will come like a thief, and you have no idea at what hour I will come against you.
What happens to people who don't escape God's judgement on the world, who are stuck on Earth for the period of Tribulation? Who wake up one morning and discover that people are missing?
Obviously, they have to take part in it. These are the unbelievers and Christians of half-hearted faith who finally repent and turn away from wickedness and profess full love and faith in God during the time of Tribulation.
This group must cope with the rule of the infamous Anti-Christ and refuse to worship him or his image, and refuse 'the mark' that enables people to buy and sell under the Anti-Christ's temporary new world order.
Many of these Christians are reported by the Bible to be executed for refusing the mark of the Anti-Christ these Christians choose execution, because the alternative is eternal torment in Hell, which is the punishment promised by God if his people take the mark (so if you are left behind, whatever happens, do not take the mark).
On top of that, natural disasters will be occurring all
across the world, with greater frequency and terrifying effects. Earthquakes,
hurricanes, tsunamis, heat waves, famine, plagues in many places these
disasters will be so widespread that the Anti-Christ will be the least of
First Fruits vs. The Elect
Luke 21:36 - "But be alert at all times, praying that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that are going to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man."
Here, we have a passage in Luke that tells us to pray 'to escape all these things that are going to take place' AND 'be counted worthy'.
The things that are going to take place are the disastrous and terrifying events of the Tribulation, which as stated above, the Philadelphia Church in Revelation 3:10 is told it will be spared from.
If you're taking notes, Luke 21:36 and Revelation 3:10 appear to state the same thing that at least some believers will be counted worthy to escape 'these things that are going to take place' (Luke 21:36) and be spared from the 'hour of trial' (Revelation 3:10).
This point should be clear by now. Let's move on to:
Matthew 24:22 - "For at that time there will be great tribulation, the kind that hasn't taken place from the beginning of the world until now and never will again! Unless those days were limited, no one would survive. But those days will be limited because of the elect."
In this passage in Matthew, we see that there are a group of believers (the 'elect') who obviously have to go through the time of Tribulation. In fact, people who believe that the rapture does not occur until after the Tribulation, cite this verse above as evidence.
However, a few paragraphs down in Matthew, it reads:
Matthew 24:37-42 - "As the days of Noah were, so the coming of the Son of Man will be. For in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying, and giving in marriage, until the day Noah boarded the ark. They didn't know until the flood came and swept them all away. So this is the way the coming of the Son of Man will be: Then two men will be in the field: one will be taken and one left. Two women will be grinding at the mill: one will be taken and one left. Therefore be alert, since you don't know what day your Lord is coming."
What is described above, 'the days of Noah', does not sound at all like a time of Tribulation. For all we know, it could be talking about today.
Here we are told specifically that people (referred to as 'first fruits' elsewhere in the Bible) will be taken from the Earth before sudden destruction hits.
Which means pre-tribulation.
So, what we see in different passages of the Bible are pre-tribulation and post-tribulation raptures; if you're keeping count, this means TWO raptures.
The first is the rapture of the purified church, and includes the resurrection of all dead believers throughout the ages.
The second is the rapture of the Tribulation saints, who become Christians during the Tribulation, after seeing their friends and family members suddenly disappear in the first rapture. This occurs at the end of the Tribulation, just before God's final wrath is poured on the world (the Seven Bowl Judgments).
The psychology of the rapture seems to be this:
Loving, obedient Christians faithful to God's ways
are rewarded by being raptured before the Tribulation starts, whereas sinful
Christians with half-hearted faith and unbelievers who have never found Christ,
are left to go through the Tribulation, at which time they are likely to
finally accept God's commands for our lives and finally come to true belief in
Christ... or reject God and in the end be condemned to Hell.
The Fall of New York
New York City has been attacked twice by Islam.
Considering that more and more news sources are reporting that 'Al Qaida has nuclear weapons inside the U.S.' smuggled in from Central America up through Mexico with a large number of Islamic sleeper agents I'm sure the next attack on New York will make the previous attacks pale in comparison.
In the Bible, the fall of 'Mystery Babylon the Great' (a city talked about in great detail in Revelation) sounds a lot like New York City. It gets destroyed by fire in 'one day and one hour', which is what would happen to present day New York City if / when a nuclear weapon is detonated.
Revelation 17:15-18 - "...the waters you saw, where the prostitute [Mystery Babylon the Great] was seated are peoples, multitudes, nations, and languages. The 10 horns you saw, and the beast, will hate the prostitute. They will make her desolate and naked, devour her flesh, and burn her up with fire. For God has put it into their hearts to carry out His plan by having one purpose, and to give their kingdom to the beast until God's words are accomplished. And the woman you saw is the great city that has an empire over the kings of the earth."
In the middle of describing the destruction that comes on this city, God says
Revelation 18:4 - "...Come out of her my people, so that you will not share in her sins, or receive any of her plagues. For her sins are piled up to heaven and God has remembered her crimes... She will be burned up with fire, because the Lord God who judges her is mighty."
Come out of her my people...
Ok, in Revelation 18:4 we just identified some kind of rapture, and it occurs either during or right before the attack on Mystery Babylon the Great.
Is this the first rapture, or the second rapture?
Hold that thought for a moment.
Further down we come to:
Revelation 18:23 - "The light of a lamp will never shine in you again; and the voice of a groom and bride will never be heard in you again."
What do we gather from this? Well, at the time of Mystery Babylon the Great's destruction, men and women are still getting married.
Ok, let's go back to Matthew, and Jesus description of the pre-tribulation rapture.
Matthew 24:37 - "As the days of Noah were, so the coming of the Son of Man will be. For in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying, and giving in marriage..."
When we look at Revelation 18:23 and Matthew 24:37 side by side, the rapture occurs before the destruction of Mystery Babylon the Great. It might even happen only minutes before...
On top of that, if people are still getting married, this must be a pre-tribulation rapture.
If this seems like a stretch, you might be in for a surprise
Is Mystery Babylon
Rome or New York City?
2) While most of the description of Mystery Babylon in Revelation fits New York City, there are two verses in it that do not:
Rev 17:6 - "...and I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her I wondered with great admiration."
Rev 18:24 - "...and in her was found all the blood of the prophets, and the saints, and of all who were slain on the earth."
I've received emails pointing this out, and I have to say this: There is no nation on earth that can claim the blood of all the prophets, and the saints, and all who were slain on earth, nor will there be a 'future' country that can make that claim. This must represent some kind of ideology: For example, "Power". Or, "Greed". Or "Envy". In Matthew 27:18 and 27:31, the Bible reports that Jesus is handed over for persecution because of "Envy". In Acts 5:17, the apostles are handed over because of "Jealousy". So, as an ideology, would "Jealousy" or "Envy" apply to New York City? Considering that money, power, and greed make the Big Apple everything that it is, I would say this applies.
There are those who believe Mystery Babylon the Great is a future Rome, the home of the Anti-Christ. It is described as the greatest city on Earth, and when the apostle John wrote Revelation 2,000 years ago, Rome was the greatest city on Earth.
That is not true today. Rome is not the greatest city, and there is no reason to believe that the Anti-Christ would want to make his home there. The Anti-Christ, who is a world leader possessed by Satan, would most likely control the world from his native homeland, where he originally begins as either a king, dictator, or president.
For example, if either the President of Iran or Russian President Vladimir Putin become the Anti-Christ, do you think they would move their headquarters to Rome? Most likely not.
Now regarding Revelation 18:4, why would God only 'rapture' people who live in Mystery Babylon the Great?
Revelation 18:4 - "...Come out of her my people, so that you will not share in her sins, or receive any of her plagues... She will be burned up with fire, because the Lord God who judges her is mighty."
Are there three raptures? A third rapture just for the people of Mystery Babylon the Great?
Revelation 18:4 has some very serious connotations to it.
1) If Mystery Babylon the Great is a future 'Rome' where the Anti-Christ rules the world from during the Tribulation, why are God's people said to be living there? Why would God tell his people to 'come out of her' prior to destroying the Anti-Christ's headquarters in 'Rome' by fire?
Because I believe that Mystery Babylon the Great is NOT a future 'Rome' where the Anti-Christ rules the world from.
In fact, if you read Revelation closely, the Anti-Christ is referred to as 'the beast'; the beast and the '10 horns' are the 'enemies' who destroy Mystery Babylon the Great.
Essentially, the Anti-Christ attacks Mystery Babylon the Great and destroys it by fire.
With that in mind, considering all the descriptions given in Chapter 18 of Revelation of a 'mighty city' with an 'empire over the kings of the earth', I believe that Mystery Babylon the Great is actually present day New York City, and that the attack on Mystery Babylon the Great described in Revelation Chapters 17 and 18, which comes suddenly and unexpectedly, is the same event that is also mentioned here:
1 Thessalonians 5:2 - "... The Day of the Lord will come just as a thief in the night. When they say "Peace and security," then sudden destruction comes on them..."
Well, according to Revelation sudden destruction comes on Mystery Babylon the Great at a time this city appears to be living in "Peace and Security":
Which takes us back to the letter to the Philadelphia Church:
Revelation 3:10 - "Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth."
Verdict the 'hour of trial' most
likely starts with the destruction of Mystery Babylon the Great and the
rapture occurs right before the 'hour of trial'.
When is the Rapture?
Revelation 14:6-9 puts the icing on the cake, so to speak, and provides solid evidence as to when the first rapture will occur.
Revelation 14:6-9 - "Then I saw another angel flying in mid heaven, having the eternal gospel to announce to the inhabitants of the earth to every nation, tribe, language, and people. He spoke with a loud voice: "Fear God and give Him glory, because the hour of His judgement [hour of trial] has come. Worship the Maker of heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water." A second angel followed, saying: "It has fallen, Babylon the Great has fallen, who made all nations drink the wine of her sexual immorality, which brings wrath."
So, as soon as the first angel announces to the world that the hour of God's judgement has come, the second angel immediately announces that Babylon the Great has fallen.
Please read that again.
If we apply this to TODAY, and New York City is Mystery Babylon the Great in Revelation the only thing holding back the pre-tribulation rapture may be a nuclear attack by Islamic radicals.
Let me re-phrase that:
The only thing holding back a nuclear attack by Islamic radicals may be the pre-tribulation rapture.
If you've been following the news, this actually is a very real threat looming over America right now.
CHICAGO TRIBUNE: Nuclear attack on U.S cities 'very real'
S.F. CHRONICLE: Time to make plans for 'day after' nuclear blast
And if God calls his people out of Mystery Babylon the Great at the moment of her destruction, we just identified the general time for the first rapture.
In addition to that, the article in the San Francisco Chronicle (above) informs us that government is so sure an attack will occur, that they are making plans for the 'day after' a nuclear attack.
Those plans better include the rapture of a large number of Christians.
Does the 'hour of judgment' in Revelation 14:6-9 begin with a nuclear attack on Mystery Babylon the Great?
Most likely, Chapter 17 describes what sounds like a nuclear attack:
Revelation 17:15-19 - "...the waters you saw, where the prostitute was seated are peoples, multitudes, nations, and languages. The 10 horns you saw, and the beast, will hate the prostitute. They will make her desolate and naked, devour her flesh, and burn her up with fire. For God has put it into their hearts to carry out His plan by having one purpose, and to give their kingdom to the beast until God's words are accomplished. And the woman you saw is the great city that has an empire over the kings of the earth."
If this is New York City, the 10 horns and the beast who hate this city, may be Islamic radicals, as well as foreign nations in the Middle East and Latin America that are currently suspected to be helping them.
What's shocking is that the United States is currently under threat of nuclear attack by Islamic radicals; and New York City is most likely their top target.
Coincidence? Probably not.
Revelation 18:4 - "...Come out of her my people, so that you will not share in her sins, or receive any of her plagues. For her sins are piled up to heaven and God has remembered her crimes... She will be burned up with fire, because the Lord God who judges her is mighty."
Come out of her my people, so that you will not share in her sins, or receive any of her plagues...
Luke 17:25-28 - It was the same in the days of Lot. People
were eating and drinking, buying and selling, planting and building. But the
day Lot left Sodom, fire and sulfur rained down from heaven and destroyed them
all. It will be just like this on the day the Son of Man is revealed. On that
day no one who is on the roof of his house, with his goods inside, should go
down to get them. Likewise, no one in the field should go back for anything.
Remember Lot's wife! Whoever tries to keep his life will lose it, and whoever
loses his life will preserve it. I tell you, on that night two people will be
in one bed; one will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding
grain together; one will be taken and the other left.
Final Thoughts on Two Raptures
Matthew, the first book of the New Testament, describes two different methods of Jesus coming for his followers. One is sudden and unexpected; the other is witnessed by the entire world, and commonly referred to by Christians as the Second Coming of Christ.
Thief in the Night - Matthew 24:39 - "So this is the way the coming of the Son of Man will be: Then two men will be in the field: one will be taken and one left. Two women will be grinding at the mill: one will be taken and one left. Therefore be alert, since you don't know what day your Lord is coming. But know this: If the homeowner had known what time the thief was coming, he would have stayed alert and not let his house be broken into. This is why you also must be ready, because the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect."
Power and Great Glory - Matthew 24:29 - "Immediately after the tribulation
of those days; The sun will be darkened, and the moon will not shed it's light;
the stars will fall from the sky, and the celestial powers will be shaken. Then
the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and then all the peoples on
the earth will mourn; and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of
heaven with power and great glory. He will send out His angels with a loud
trumpet, and they will gather His elect from the four winds, from one end of
the sky to the other."
How to Make the First Rapture
It's clear from reading Matthew above, that there are two raptures and considering current events, the first rapture may be a lot sooner than you think.
Right now it is very important that you become true to the Christian faith, REPENT of any sin still in your life, and become passionate about God's Greatest Commandment for our lives (Matthew 22:37).
Remember, just because you're a Christian does not mean that God is pleased with you. God knows hearts and minds, and he knows every detail about you. He knows where your faith is.
True faith begins with your accepting his gift of forgiveness of sins, for which Jesus Christ, his son, died on the cross.
Now as a believer in Christ, pray to God for sanctification (1 Thess. 5:23) by his Holy Spirit, so that you can escape sin, and be made holy and righteous, in the image of Christ. You must become purified by the renewing of your mind.
This doesn't mean you become a religious freak that shaves his head and only eats organic cereal. This simply means that you embrace God's commandments to love God and neighbor; that you eliminate deceit, corruption, and sexual immorality from your life, and you pursue what is good and reject what is bad.
1 Peter 1:6-7 - In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that your faithof greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by firemay be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.
You must read the Bible. Considering world events and that Revelation is unfolding in the world around us, I would put prayer and Bible study at the top of your daily list of priorities and get yourself into a Fundamentalist Christian church, that believes in a pre-tribulation rapture.
You will most likely hear sermons that encourage higher standards of Christian living and clear warnings of Hell as well as demands for full repentance of sin. If you don't believe God holds us to higher standards, then I suggest you read Chapters 2 and 3 of Revelation. God is very clear on what he demands from us he demands that we overcome sin.
Fear God. Love God. Obey his commandments. Embrace his Greatest Commandment.
Last, you must not want anything to do with this world, and instead look forward to the return of Jesus Christ, which Jesus told us himself to be on the alert for, as it can happen at any time.
God wants you to look forward to the world he has promised us because it is going to put this world to shame.
Jesus tells us to watch for the signs, and if you're keeping watch, these signs are happening all around us. He says that as these signs begin to happen, 'to lift up our heads because our redemption draws near'.
1. The rapture of the Christian church is the next thing that's going to happen.
2. Followed by a catastrophic nuclear attack on New York City, Phoenix, and possibly other major U.S. cities (the war of Gog and Magog--Ezekiel 38 & 39).
3. Followed by the unveiling of the Anti-Christ, and the fall of the United States.

across the country. It appears that judgment begins from God with the World
Trade Towers falling. Sarah Hoffman died in 1979 and was told she had to
come back and finish her earth life but first she was shown the end of the
"This panoramic view of the earth came into view and then came closer and closer like I had been out into space and was flying towards it.
I knew that this was to help me make my decision to go back to earth, to my terrible life, because part of me wanted to go back to the beautiful spirit world or paradise and part of me felt the need to go back into my body and change my life. It was kind of a tug of war and what I was going to see was to help me understand what I would go through if I went back into my clay body.
It played out again just like a video tape in fast forward motion and yet again I could assimilate and see everything clearly and perfectly. As the world zoomed up to me I saw the whole world and then the various countries.
I don't know the countries of the world very well, but as I looked at these lands I instinctively knew what countries they were. I was looking at the Middle East and watched as a missile flew from Libya and hit Israel with a big mushroom cloud. I knew that the missile was actually from Iran but people from Iran had been hiding it in Libya and fired it. I knew that it was a nuclear bomb. Almost immediately missiles started flying from one country to another, quickly spreading to all over the world. I also saw that many nuclear explosions did not come from missiles but from ground bombs of some kind. I knew that in the future there would be a nuclear war throughout the world and this is how it would start.
Then, my focus changed from the Middle East to America. I understood that I was about to see some of the things that would lead up to the nuclear holocaust I had just witnessed.
As I looked upon the continent of North America, I zeroed in on the east coast and then to New York. I saw New York with all of its buildings and people. Then I saw some tall buildings crashing to the earth with tremendous smoke, debris and dust everywhere (World Trade Towers ?). I saw a woman holding a little girls hand running from the crashing buildings. The lady had long dark hair past her shoulders curled inward a little. She had on a beige business suit, heels of a slightly darker color, perhaps a tan color. No glasses. The little girl appeared to be about 6-7 yrs old with short brown hair, below the chin, in a sort of a pageboy haircut. They were running together, holding hands running from the falling buildings in the heavy smoke and dust and they were forced to let go of hands and thereby they got separated. The little girl was terrified and I could hear the little girl screaming mommy, mommy over again and again. I don't know if they lived or died. I can still see the face of the lady clearly and could identify her if I saw a picture...or could describe her to an artist to draw her. I asked if an earthquake caused the buildings to fall down and the impression was no, but I don't know what caused them to fall.
The next thing that I felt more than I saw was that shortly after this there was no commerce, no shopping, buying, and was impressed that there was no economy. The economy had almost failed completely and no one had any money.
The next thing I saw was people being sick and dying. I saw this particularly in four cities, New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Salt Lake. The disease started by having white blisters, some the size of dimes appear on their hands, arms and face. This quickly developed into white puffy sores and blisters. They would stumble about and fall and then many died within a short time, maybe 24 hours. I also saw other people with blood coming from their nose, mouth, eyes and ears. It started like a flu virus and it spread very quickly, faster than the other white blister disease. The people who had this disease died even faster. This was more wide spread across the entire United States. There were hundreds of thousands of people stricken with these two diseases.
I knew that the diseases, and there were several different kinds, but at first primarily these two, came from small containers that had been brought into the United States. These containers were like quart jars and I was impressed that the people carrying them would just drop them on the ground in large crowds of people and the people would become infected without realizing it.
In these cities as the disease spread, the people tried to flee from the cities out to the countryside. There was complete chaos in these cities and a breakdown of normal society. There was no electricity (EMP?) in them either, but I don't know why or how that came to be. There were cars piled up everywhere, blocking roadways and most people then had to walk out with nothing. The disease started to spread beyond these initial cities.
As these people were fleeing the cities, there were gangs attacking them and killing them. In the cities that were struck with the disease, there was complete chaos, looting, rioting, murdering, a complete breakdown. Many people seemed to go absolutely crazy. I sensed that the electricity had failed everywhere now and that nothing was running, there was no communication or anything anywhere in the country. Nothing worked, no radios or TV's. I watched people throw rocks and break windows to steal TV's which I thought was really crazy because they wouldn't work.
Immediately, as I watched this happen in the United States, I jumped back to the Middle East and saw the same thing in Israel, the same sores and I realized that it was the same types of disease or sickness happening there. I knew somehow that whatever diseases had been used in the United States was also being used in Israel.
This lasted for only an instant and I was back in the United States. There was a tremendously long winter that lasted into summer. It caught everyone by surprise and started the full famine. Actually, I realized that the long winter actually just increased the famine greatly to its full measure, because the famine had already been in progress because of the storms, droughts, floods and other plagues that had been happening over the few years leading up to the long winter.
It seemed then that the year following the long winter was when everything started to go down hill very quickly or things piled up one on top of the other without any breaks. The sense of time though was not very clear because I was seeing several things that seemed to happen all at the same time or very close together.
During and after the long winter, the disease spread everywhere and increased in severity. The economy was completely gone and the electricity was also gone. There was complete chaos and anarchy all over the United States. There was no government, just a total breakdown. There was no food at all... I saw people trying to get food and were completely panicked because there was no food. I saw people digging in the ground for worms and eating them because they were so hungry.
Also, during this time I became aware that there was very little water and that almost all of the water had become poisoned so that if a person drank the water they would get the disease and die. Many did even knowing that they would die, because they were so thirsty.
Some of the people seemed to go crazy and went around in gangs killing people just for the sake of killing. Others killed for food or for things but the people who killed just to kill were absolutely terrible. They seemed like beasts, animals completely out of control as they raped, looted, burned and butchered people. I saw them go into people's homes and drag families out who were hiding there and rape them and butcher them.
There was such a fear and hatred that came upon the
people...families, wives, husbands...loving ties no longer mattered...it became
survival only. Husbands
would kill their wives and children for food or water. Mothers would kill their children. It was absolutely
horrible beyond description.
The air seemed to be filled with smoke as many buildings and cities burned and no one put them out. As I looked upon the scene of chaos, destruction and smoke, I noticed that there were these little pockets of light scattered all over the United States. There were, I would guess, about twenty or thirty of them. I noticed that most of these places of light were in the Western part of the United States, with only three or four in the East.
These places of light seemed to shine through the darkness and caught my attention and so I concentrated on them, asking, "what are these things?"
I could then see that they were people who had gathered together and they were on their knees and they were praying. The light was coming from them and I understood that it represented their goodness and love. I understood that they had gathered together for safety and that they cared more for each other than for themselves. Some of the groups were small, with only a hundred people or so, but in other groups there were what seemed several thousand.
I realized that somehow many, if not most of these cities of light had been established just before the disease attack and that they were very organized. It was like they had known what was coming and had prepared for it. I didn't see who or what had organized them, but I saw many people struggling to get to them with nothing but what they could carry.
These cities of light had food and were sharing their food with those who joined them in their groups. There was peace and safety in the groups. They were living in tents, all kinds of tents, many of which were just blankets, covering poles. I noticed that the gangs left these groups alone, choosing to pick on easier targets and unprotected people. They also preyed on the people who were trying to get to the cities of light. Many people in these cities of light had guns to defend themselves with and so the gangs left them alone but it seemed that the gangs just didn't want to come against them.
I realized that these cities of light, which is what I began to think of them, were only for a short time and then the people in them would go somewhere else, however, I don't know where they went but I seem to think that they gathered to the mountains, to the high places.
As I was looking at the cities of light, I then saw missiles coming and hitting some cities and mushroom clouds started happening all over the United States. Some were from missiles that I knew came from Russia and others were not from missiles, but were from bombs that were already in the United States. They were hidden in trucks and in cars and were exploded.
I specifically saw Los Angeles, Las Vegas and New York hit with bombs. New York was hit with a missile, but I think that Los Angeles was hit by a truck bomb or actually several, because I didn't see any missile. I also saw north of Salt Lake City have a mushroom cloud, a small one, but no missile.
In the darkness I also saw little fireballs. I don't know if this happened just before or during the mushroom clouds, but there were millions falling everywhere. They were very hot, of different sizes with most about the size of golf balls. As they fell from the sky they left a streak of flame and smoke behind them. Whatever they touched they started on fire, people, buildings, trees, grass it didn't matter. I didn't ask what they were or where they came from, because by this time I was getting sick of the whole scene and so I just observed and didn't ask many questions.
Almost right on top of these mushroom clouds I saw Russian troops invading the United States. I saw them parachuting in to a lot of places, primarily from the East Coast. I saw them parachute into Salt Lake City. I also saw Chinese troops invade from the West Coast, near Los Angeles. The people who were still alive started fighting them with their own guns. I didn't see any military.
This was the nuclear war that I had seen earlier and I knew that it was also happening all over the world like I had seen previously. I did not see much of this war, but I was impressed that it was not very long and the Russians and Chinese lose, but I don't know how exactly.
Now the smoke turned to a very thick, heavy dark smoke. Just as things appeared to be as bad as it could get, then the earthquakes happened. This happened during a winter. It seemed that this was the winter following the very long one and so the chaos had been almost for a full year. The earthquakes seemed to start in the West, around Idaho and Wyoming and then quickly spread everywhere.
I saw a huge earthquake strike Utah and then California. There were earthquakes all over California, but were especially devastating in Los Angeles and San Francisco areas.
These earthquakes triggered volcanoes all over the West. They started spewing a tremendous amount of ash and smoke into the air and the air became very dark and dirty. The sun was darkened even more because of the smoke and the ash that started raining down everywhere.
I also saw huge waves of water sweep over the West Coast and then I realized that it was happening all over the coastal cities of the entire world. Los Angeles was almost swept completely away. The waves were huge.
I saw a big wall of water, taller than many of the buildings, perhaps as high as 20 feet, sweep over Salt Lake City. I thought this was strange because it was so far from the ocean and I thought how could a wave from the ocean travel all the way to Salt Lake City. I was impressed that it was not from the ocean but from the ground. I quickly saw great cracks in the earth around Salt Lake City open up and water just shot out of the ground. I felt that under the ground, very deep, there was a tremendous amount of water in the ground and the earthquakes forced it up to the surface. When the water swept over the city, there weren't very many buildings left, in fact there was a tremendous destruction with hardly anything left at all, just a few buildings. The water went from Idaho down to near Cedar City and was very bad.
In the cities there was great destruction, and most of the buildings had been destroyed and there was a lot of rubble. Though the earthquakes, disease, floods, volcanos, tidal waves killed a lot of people, most people died because of the gangs and everyone killing each other...not from the terrible devastations.
As I thought a moment about the It seemed that the earth itself had become sickened at the terrible things that were happening upon it and was finally reacting. I was impressed that the earth wanted to cleanse itself of the terrible chaos and evil that had engulfed the people.
Because of the volcanoes erupting everywhere, there was now ash mixed with the heavy smoke. Ash was falling and it was almost complete darkness everywhere.
The diseases had become very bad...I saw people literally die on their feet. There was another disease I saw. They had these red blotches on them and then they quickly started bleeding everywhere, from every opening. Then, they literally disintegrated or melted into unrecognizable masses of flesh and bone. I cannot even begin to describe what I saw. The dead were everywhere
After this terrible winter, I saw the survivors pile up the dead into huge piles and burn them. The smell was absolutely terrible. I could smell it just a little and the smell itself would make you sick This burning of bodies had happened a little during the chaos, but not much because people were so worried about surviving that they just ignored the dead.
I then saw four more things.
I saw a huge earthquake in the middle of the United States. It was tremendous and seemed to split the United States in half about where the Mississippi River is. The crack in the earth that resulted was huge and that area totally sinks. It is miles wide and it opens up and the earth falls down. It seemed to swallow everything. Then water flowed in from the Gulf of Mexico all the way up to the Great Lakes, only they weren't lakes anymore, they became all part of a big inland sea.
I then saw a series of tremendous earthquakes all over the world. But it wasn't lots of separate earthquakes, it was all part of one huge, gigantic earthquake that shakes the entire earth. Because of this earthquake, waters come upon the land all over the world. Huge walls of water along all of the coasts. This earthquake and the walls of water make the earlier ones seem small by comparison. I don't know if the earthquake that split the United States into two parts was part of this worldwide quake or not.
I then saw a tremendous wind come upon the earth. As the wind hit I saw people go into caves and into the cracks of rocks to escape it. It was tremendous and it blew trees and everything away. It appeared to be stronger than any hurricane or tornado. It seemed like everything was blown away.
I understood, without asking, that the great worldwide earthquake and the wind were somehow caused by a huge object, like a planet or something, that had come very close by the earth and disrupted everything and that it was near the end that this happened.
I then was back into space viewing the entire earth from a distance. I then saw this huge fireball, two or three times bigger than the earth approach the earth. It was extremely bright red and gold in color and then engulfed the entire earth. When I saw this, because it was so different than everything else, I then asked what it was. I was impressed that it was the burning of the earth that is described in the scriptures. I understood that just before it comes that Jesus had appeared to the earth and the good people that I had seen earlier had left the earth with Him and were no longer on the earth. The only people left were the few wicked who had survived the devastations earlier, but there were not many."
Map of the destruction of the USA!!
This vision of the USA was given to a woman that was in a coma
for 18 days in 2007. During this time the LORD showed her this picture of the
coming judgments to the USA. The vision was released on Sept 19, 2009 in the
Mississippi area at a community meeting. She handed out copies of this
On the map where the waves are in California, Texas, Louisiana, and Florida, she said the waves were huge and everything was under water. The coastal areas where nothing is seen on them, (from Maine down to Georgia, Washington and Oregon) she said it was as if those states no longer existed. The green dots represent some safe areas. The red marks are fire (Nuclear Bombed?). The purple marks are foreign armies invading the land.
Here are the maps:
PLEASE WATCH THESE VIDEOS:
A few years back I read the story of an American woman who ran a business in Hong Kong. She fired one of the Chinese workers, who went into a rage [probably justifiable] against the forces of western corporate imperialism. He told her with full assurace that one day China would stage a massive military invasion of the USA. They would flood into the coast in the millions in massive wave after wave of invaders. They expected heavy losses, however the living soldiers would simply walk over the bodies of their dead comerades, and continue the battle. They would be like a massive wave of army ants, unstoppable [consider that Red China's active military numbers well over 5 million with tens of millions of "reserves", whereas the U.S.A.'s active military force numbers less than one million, and most of these are entangled in foreign U.N. "peace keeping" operations. This does not include Russia, Cuba, the Arab League or any other nation that might choose to side with China in a military invasion of the USA]. Eventually, according to this former Chinese employee, the Americans would eventually run out of bullets and the invaders would prevail as a result of sheer numbers. Shades of Revelation chapter 18?
Actually, while investigating this possibility, I have discovered that there have been MANY OTHERS who have predicted an inevitable global showdown between the forces of Communism and Capitalism, and their respective 'World Order' agendas. Here are some of the claims/prophecies/visions and so on that I have come across to date. This seems to involve the use BY a Euro-American New World Order agenda of Russian and Chinese U.N. troops to help bring the USA into subjection to a Capitalist based "New World Order". However based on information I have heard through the "grapevine", Russia and China may merely be towing the party line of the "New World Order" for NOW, in order to establish a foothold in the USA through the U.N. "Trojan Horse", however once inside they will apparently dump the U.N. agenda and anything to do with the Euro-American based "New World Order" and implement their OWN agenda of a Sino-Russian based "Red World Order" [if you will], in that the old Communist factions of China and Russia will NEVER submit themselves to a New World Order that is centered outside of Asia, nor one that is run by capitalist western international banking empires. So then, determine what you will regarding what follows:
Excerpt from George Washington's angelic vision at Valley Forge in 1777, of World War III and a military invasion of the USA, as related by: Wesley Bradshaw
"...And again I heard the mysterious voice saying, 'Son of the Republic, look and learn.' At this, the dark, shadowy angel placed a trumpet to his mouth and blew three distinct blasts; and taking water from the ocean, he sprinkled it upon Europe, Asia, and Africa. Then my eyes beheld a fearful scene. From each of these countries arose thick, black clouds that were soon joined into one. And throughout this mass, there gleamed a dark red light by which I saw hordes of armed men, who, moving with the cloud, marched by land and sailed by sea to America, which country was enveloped in the volume of cloud. And I dimly saw these vast armies devastate the whole country, and burn the villages, towns and cities that I beheld springing up.
"As my ears listened to the thundering of the cannon, clashing of swords, and the shouts and cries of millions in mortal combat., I again heard the mysterious voice saying, 'Son of the Republic, look and learn.' When the voice had ceased, the dark shadowy angel placed his trumpet once more to his mouth, and blew a long and fearful blast.
"Instantly a light as of a thousand suns shone down from above me, and pierced and broke into fragments the dark cloud which enveloped America. At the same moment the angel upon whose head still shone the word 'Union,' and who bore our national flag in one hand and a sword in the other, descended from the heavens attended by legions of white spirits. These immediately joined the inhabitants of America, who I perceived were well-nigh overcome, but who immediately taking courage again closed up their broken ranks and renewed the battle. Again, amid the fearful noise of the conflict, I heard the mysterious voice saying, 'Son of the Republic, look and learn.'
"As the voice ceased, the shadowy angel for the last time dipped water from the ocean and sprinkled it upon America. Instantly the dark cloud rolled back, together with the armies it had brought, leaving the inhabitants of the land victorious.
"Then once more I beheld the villages, towns and cities, springing up where I had seen them before, while the bright angel, plating the azure standard he had brought in the midst of them, cried with a loud voice: 'While the stars remain, and the heavens send down dew upon the earth, so long shall the Union last.' And taking from his brow the crown on which was blazoned the word 'Union,' he placed it upon the Standard, while the people, kneeling down, said 'Amen.'

...Russian and Chinese forces are also very active in Canada. They are re-building and strengthening railroad tracks for the anticipated heavy use of railway transportation of incoming military personnel from the west coast (both Russian and Chinese forces) as well as transporting military vehicles and armaments and food supplies. New Tracks are also being laid between border states and Canada. Those people who are arrested as resisters or dissidents will also be transported in specially prepared boxcars to the death camps already established near the border, such as the one near Cut Bank, MT, (see report titled - The Death Camp of Cut Bank, Montana.) The death camp outside of Cut Bank has been conveniently located right off a major AMTRAK express line in the anticipation of transporting resisters and dissidents conveniently to their deaths by rail. Reports have been received form INTEL sources nationwide which indicate that certain boxcars are quietly being renovated from the inside so that they can be used for prisoner transport to such death camps, [Editor's Note: While I Have no proof of these reports, they do match Bible prophecy - so I include them here. In addition, I have heard this report from several credible sources. " In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established."]...
In anticipation of the coming invasion from Russia and China, Canada has even gone so far as to disband it's Western coast guard divisions, thus they are open to amphibious invasion forces. According to our veteran intelligence source in New England, the Chinese are very much anticipating an amphibious invasion of America from the West. This was openly evidenced recently through the presentation of a documentary report over the BBC television in London which detailed amphibious forces practicing war maneuvers and strategy in the Formosa Straits.
When BBC newsmen were permitted to interview these soldiers in training, they repeatedly asked them the same question. "What are you preparing to use this training for?" The shocking, consistent reply was: "FOR THE INVASION OF AMERICA!" When it became clear that the gaff in security was created by airing this broadcast over television in England, its scheduled re-broadcast for the next day was hastily canceled. (Speculate no more on the suspicious suicide of Admiral Michael Borda... I was informed that he was terminated because of his refusal to cooperate in the covert plan by our traitorous NWO forces within our own government to assist in the coming invasion of America. When he refused to go along with the plan to covertly bring Chinese forces into America thru the use of our own Navy vessels, orders were given from high to terminate him.)
...Some years ago while I lived near Portland, Oregon, I had a dream in which I saw Asian soldiers with faces of iron attacking Astoria, Oregon, 50 miles away, and killing everyone in sight. People were stepping to their front doors to see what the noise was about and were suddenly killed. The number of soldiers was spectacular. They are mercilessness shocking...demonic. Many others have had the same dream.
From: Dumitru Duduman
I prayed. then went to bed. I was still awake, when suddenly I heard a trumpet sound. A voice cried out to me, "Stand!"
In my vision, I was in America. I walked out out of home, and began to look for the one who had spoken to me. As I looked, I saw three men dressed alike. Two of the men carried weapons. One of the armed men came to me. "I woke you to show you what is to come," he said. "Come with me."
I didn't know where I was being taken, but when we reached a certain place he said, "Stop here!"
A pair of binoculars was handed to me, and I was told to look through them.
"Stand there, don't move, and look," he continued. "You will see what they are saying, and what they are preparing for America."
As I was looking, I saw a great light. A dark cloud appeared over it. I saw the president of Russia, a short, chubby man, who said he was the president of China, and two others. the last two also said where they were from, but I did not understand. However, I gathered they were part of Russian controlled territory. The men stepped out of the cloud.
The Russian president began to speak to the Chinese one. "I will give you the land with all the people, but you must free Taiwan of the Americans. Do not fear, we will attack them from behind."
A voice said to me, "Watch where the Russians penetrate America." Then I saw these words being written: Alaska, Minnesota, Florida.
Then the man spoke again," When America goes to war with China, the Russians will strike without warning."
The other two presidents spoke, "We, too, will fight for you." Each had a place already planned as a point of attack. All of them shook hands and hugged. Then they all signed a contract.
One of them said, "We're sure that Korea and Cuba will be on our side, too. Without a doubt, together, we can destroy America."
The president of Russia began to speak insistently, "Why let ourselves be led by the Americans? Why not rule the world ourselves? They have to be kicked out of Europe, too! Then I could do as I please with Europe!"
The man standing beside me said, "This is what you saw: they act as friends, and say they respect the treaties made together. But everything I've shown you is how it will REALLY happen. You must tell them what is being planned against America. Then, when it comes to pass, the people will remember the words the Lord has spoken."
"Who are you?" I asked. "I am the protector of America. America's sin has reached God. He will allow this destruction, for He can no longer stand such wickedness. God, however, still has people that worship Him with a clean heart as they do His work. He has prepared a heavenly army to save these people."
As I looked, a great army,well armed and dressed in white, appeared before me. "Do you see that?" the man asked. "This army will go to battle to save My chosen ones. Then, the difference between the Godly and the ungodly will be evident.
From: Zelma Kirkpatrick
In 1954 and written then. I was almost afraid to tell my vision of war and invasion in America; so I called Brother Roy Johnson and asked him if he thought I ought, and he said I should as no doubt God had given it as a warning, but now a lot of people got stirred up and left the coast, and I have been told that they are laying the blame to me, saying I told them to go. But Jesus knows the truth, and that is all that really matters. I only hope it doesn't hurt my ministry for Jesus' sake. I'd hate for my friends that I love to think such a thing. I only told what God showed me and then told the people to pray.
I was praying at home before I ever went to South Bend, Washington, and God spoke to me in prophecy and said, "You will see what they see, hear what they hear, and you will sit among them and be astonished seven days, and you will put your hand over your mouth." I couldn't understand what He meant, but I never once doubted that it was from God; and it was, for it came to pass.
I had the first vision two nights before going. It was in the night before I had gone to sleep when I saw a big relief map of the USAno states marked off and just in colors of greens and tans. Then I saw a black strip come on the West Coast as black as black paint. It came quickly, like taking a paintbrush and making a quick stripe down the west border from Seattle to lower California. Then it began to spread slowly like ink in a blotter, and I cried out, "What is it, Lord?" for I could not understand it and did not think of war. Then all at once the word "invasion" I heard, I believe in an audible voice. I said, "Lord, will they take all of America?" And He answered, no, that it would take the western states. In fact, the exact words were, "They will not be stopped until they reach the Middle West."
I woke my husband and told him He did not want me to go to South Bend, but I felt I must go to South Bend and went. I was not afraid. In fact, I told him this: "If it's God, He will confirm it. If not, I don't want to listen."
So I forgot it entirely the first two weeks in South Bend. The third week I wakened out of a sound sleep as if someone had shaken me roughly. Then I saw the terrible war. The soldiers were Chinese and a few Russians. They were dressed in red coats and caps and light khaki trousers, almost white. They ran in a sort of hop-skip way, and they squealed as they fought. They looked to be in a fiendish flee. They would plunge their bayonets in the people's belly and rip them up. They were devils. It was fiendish hell turned loose.
This time I did not intend to tell it either, but I called Brother Johnson, and he said to go ahead. I still didn't intend to tell it, but on Monday eve at Aberdeen fellowship meeting I told it, and seven Holy Ghost-filled people, the best I can remember the number, came and told me visions of the same. For one solid week people came, and there was such a stir that I found myself astonished, almost afraid to speak and finally caught myself with my hand covering my mouth as God had said, and I was determined not to mention it again; and I saw a third vision of Christian martyrs and remembered what God had said, and that's how it went. The vision of the saints suffering was the worst, and I can never forget ittorture and rape and everything terrible.
When I came home and told Kirk, he said, "We will leave the coast." I cried and begged him not to go. I told him God was our refuge and strength, and he said this: "God showed you what to do. Do you think He will bless us if you don't obey Him?" And moreover he said, "Everything you have ever told me came to pass, so why should this fail?"
So I prayed. I said, "God, if you want us to go, sell my house for me." I'd had it in five realtors' hands in the past three years, and it hadn't sold. I said, "Sell it soon if it's you." I listed it one day, and it sold the next.
Now, I am not telling people what to do. I only know that God directed my move and told me many would die; many would flee; and some would live through the war. One thing I know: I believe this to have come from God, so much so that I'd stake my life on it. I do not know when, but I do know it is coming.
I never told the visions at Sioux City, but a lady came and told how God gave her a vision of troops being sent west by the trainload and by bus over a pavement that was not as yet built when she saw itbut is now built right where she saw it in her vision.
Dream: WEST COAST INVASION - HEARTBREAK & SEPARATION (received September 27th, 1990 Thursday, having just moved from Tulsa, Oklahoma to Novato, California)
dream: I saw Obama and he was standing in front of a white tent. I can't say he was doing anything.
In the next scene I was called up to this high-rise mansion or called up to this complex area and I was told that my mother had died. I was issued a rifle and I had to search around for ammunition. I was only given a limited amount of ammunition and I was given a rifle. Then it was impressed upon me that I needed to go out and defend the coast. I went out along the California Coast and there were enemy soldiers coming in "IN THE HORDES" to take over the country. On this same beach I saw a young boy in the distance who appeared to be my son and who was running frantically toward me thinking I was his dad. As we got closer together and could clearly recognize one another I realized that he was not my son and he saw that I was not his father. We were both grieved and heartbroken, in this instance, because we, like others, had experienced separation from our families and loved ones.
In the next scene there were very long trains with open box cars having blue rubberized vinyl covers. Inside one of these boxcars, with the blue rubberized vinyl covers, were my wife and two children. They were real cold, and they were being transported to some location like Siberia where they were to be given a place to live. The place where they were to live looked much like the large apartment complexes built all over Germany after World War II. They really weren't that bad, but it was not an individual home like you would find in the United States, rather, it was more like the living quarters found in a European Country.
In this dream, my wife, who in reality is quite slim, was very heavy set with freckles on her face and a scarf on her head. She looked very much like a Russian Woman. My wife actually appeared more than heavy set, she actually appeared to be pregnant.
Once again, at the end of the dream, there was much separation of families between the fathers and mothers and the children with much heartbreak and grief.

I must also add that I received further visions, dreams and prophecies in abbreviated format on the same subject by e-mail which unfortunately are not posted on the Web. One particular e-mail was on a brief excerpt of a book entitled "Destiny of America" by Timothy G. Snodgrass (Prophetic Intelligence Network, P. O. Box 1242, Bend, OR 97709). He outlines one particular vision in which he saw a nuclear attack on America. He details the ensuing death, by radiation, of many people while many others "wandered aimlessly, having a look of hopelessness and death written on their faces." Famine and poverty were everywhere. He was carried in the Spirit throughout the country to witness America's post-nuclear attack and destruction, particularly California. He also speaks of the "war in the heavens." There were "many clashes and dogfights with the Chinese in the air." He also saw Chinese troops "landing on our shores and gathering people into camps." (See ARTICLESEquot;The Coming American Holocaust") He gives a strong, graphic account of everything shown him which lines up with many of the visions and dreams referred to here.
The following post appeared on an e-mail list hosted by Eaglenet
[TheEagle-L] Re: Vision of China
I have had dreams of fighting the Chinese soldiers. In one dreem when I was a teen, I was in a zodiac boat with other people in camoflage going down a river [in the U.S.?]. We saw a tin shack with a radio tower next to it. We went in the shack to look at the equipment. I saw a patrol boat with Chinese soldiers coming up the river. I quickly got some wire and hooked the wire to the door and the other end to a large battery in the shack and aimed my rifle at the door. As soon as heard a scream I shot trough the door and the recoil of the rifle woke me up. And I had another dream involving Chinese soldiers I was on a highway walking when I came across burned vehicles and other sorts of debris. I saw a Chinese soldier standing up above a crowd of people saying to surrender to us and you will have a better life. I came across a 50Cal. machine gun in one of the overturned trucks and I could only find 3 rounds and they were chained together. I loaded the gun and fired on the soldier and I woke up. These dreams were strange. I had these dreams before I knew about China and what a threat they [may be] to the U.S. I don't have dreams about killing ether except in these two dreems. And I don't fantasize about killing.
From: Gail Smith's Story
...U. S. INVADED: Shortly after the second earthquake the United States will be attacked by invading forces. Russia will invade the East coast and China the West coast. The invasion will include missile attacks. She was shown that the invasion would occur when people were eating and drinking which Gail believes to be Thanksgiving, but possibly Christmas. There will be nuclear attacks on both coasts, Las Vegas, and perhaps in Utah. [Note: This is supposed to take place following a September Wall Street economic COLLAPSE, which will be followed by a long-lasting quake 10 days later, and a MAJOR quake that will break many dams 15 days following the first quake. She saw the invasion-taking place near or shortly after the second quake. One year after the first two quakes, two more MEGA-QUAKES will hit that will shake the entire planet and will kill millions and literally cause whole mountain ranges to rise and fall].
...Many, including Isaiah and Gayle, have been shown the invasion of the US by Russia on the east coast and China on the west coast. Isaiah says that the invading forces, after accomplishing great destruction will be stopped by divine intervention and themselves destroyed &/or driven back. One man was told that the invasion would occur after the US ships troops to Korea. [Note: Gail has also stated that she has had dreams/visions of what may be destined to be the greatest military ground battle in the history of the world, which will take place in the Nevada desert between Eastern and Western military forces].
From: Dan Evehema
[Hopi Prophecy]: "...The liberators will come in from the west with great force. They will drop down from the sky like rain. They will have no mercy. We must not get on the house tops to watch. They will shake us by our ears, like children who have been bad. This will be the final decisive battle between good and evil. This battle will cleanse the heart of people and restore our Mother Earth from illness, and the wicked will be gotten rid of."
The following is from Kathy Kritz, and was submitted to the Berean Bible School's Prophetic Mailing List [now inactive!?]:
I wanted to share what I have been seeing traveling from our home to our church for the past six months. After reading about the different reports coming in I thought this would be the right timing, I have been asking the Lord what this means. I have been seeing (but wasn't revealed the meaning) except it was China taking over different pockets of the USA.
My family and I live about 40 miles to our church so we have to drive every Sunday to get there. For the past 6 months or so whenever we get to a certain area I begin to see these soldiers in black pants with red jackets, black boots with some kind of emblem on their lapel. (I cannot see the emblems impression yet I know it plays a significant role in identification and time). Anyway these soldiers are scattered in groups where they have taken over this area (roughly covering an area of about two small cities population).
I just see them standing around but sense they are from China and this has been a takeover of this area. There are no Americans in sight but a sense of devastation and imprisonment all about this area of Americans and homes being confiscated. That is all I have but it occurs at the same place everytime. We live about 40 miles south of Nashville, Tn and our church is approximately 2 miles from Nashville. The Lord has also confirmed this through my son which is 13. He has dreams of us being in underground caves fighting the Chinese, my husband as well has had dreams of our family being in the mountains fighting gorilla warfare from enemy forces. They are too much to go into but the Lord usually gives the dreams to them out of the blue. Of course my son does not evaluate them, he just wakes up sometimes and tells me Mom let me tell you about my dream, and it is usually prophetic in nature of what the Lord is showing me as well as my husband. We try not to focus on the dreams so that my son will not manufacture them. Actually we do not even talk much about it but listen to what he says in the dream and take it to the Lord later by ourselves.
Post Rapture Survival Guide
by Kurt Seland
The purpose of this manual is twofold:
First of all, it is to warn those who receive this manual prior to the rapture of the events that will take place in the last days as foretold in the Bible. Based on what the Bible has to say about future events, nobody in their right mind would want live on earth after the rapture. Hopefully, many will read, believe, seek God, repent and be saved. Salvation is very simple, so simple to attain, in fact, that most people cannot accept its simplicity; thereby reject it completely. However, it is complex because it is life-changing and based on that which we cannot see; it is based on faith. Simple, because Jesus does all the work. If you want to be saved and have eternal life, simply pray the following prayer in belief and humility to the Lord:
PRAY THIS PRAYER OUT LOUD TO GOD:
Heavenly Father, I believe that Jesus died
on the cross for me and rose again. I give
you my life. I want Jesus Christ to come
into my life and into my heart. AMEN!
Secondly, to those left behind after the rapture, this is indeed a survival manual. You still have an opportunity to repent and have eternal life. The same prayer of salvation is applicable to you; the only difference is that you will spend a little time experiencing a taste of hell while you remain on earth.
Let me be really frank with you. If you are reading this manual and the rapture has already occurred, then you probably are not going to physically survive; you most likely will die sometime in the next few years. This manual is about the survival of your soul. You are going to go through terrible suffering. The only question that remains is whether you will go to Heaven or go to hell when you die.
Definition: Rapture--This is the event that will occur when Jesus calls His followers (both gentile and Jewish believers) with a trumpet blast, and in the "twinkling of an eye" they will be removed from the earth and transported to be with Jesus in the heavens.
Biblical Foundation for the Rapture
"Take notice, I am telling you a secret. We shall not all die but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet call. For the trumpet will sound and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall all be changed" (I Corinthians 15:51-52).
"For with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and the trumpet of God, the Lord Himself will descend from Heaven, and those who died in Christ will rise first. Afterward we, the living who remain, will be caught up along with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we shall forever be with the Lord" (I Thessalonians 4:16-17).
"...For I am going away to prepare a place for you. And when I have gone and have prepared a place for you, I will come again and take you to Myself so that where I am, you also will be" (John 14:2-3).
Events and Circumstances Prior to the Rapture
At the time that this manual was being written, and for the remainder of the time left in this age, the one word that describes the condition of the world is change. All of this change is being accomplished through the work of Satan, as he cannot tolerate anything that originated from God's creation. Originally, the Bible tells us that when God created the world He declared that it was "good." That means that it was perfect and no changes were necessary. Included in His creation were standards to live by that He gave to Adam and Eve. These standards covered everything from how to live in our private lives, to proper domestic relationships, to principles for governing a community. Satan seeks to change everything that God has created and established, thus he has used his power and influence in the world to make subtle deviations to God's original plan. Satan's goal is to establish a world order headed by his protege (the world dictator known in the Bible as the Beast and anti-christ) who will spend his time and effort changing everything to be in opposition to God's will as expressed in the Bible. This is predicted in the Bible in the book of Daniel: "and he will intend to make alterations in times and in law."
In today's political environment there is no effective leadership in the world. Every nation lacks strong and competent leaders able to deal with the problems at home and abroad. The United States, which has been the world leader for the last 50 years, has steadily lost its influence among other nations because of political leaders in the United States who have no moral center to direct their decision making process. However, this distrust and dislike of government and government leaders is not just an American phenomenon but is a common theme in Europe, South America, Asia and the entire world. Because of this leadership vacuum in the world, there is now an opportunity for a man to arise who is very charismatic, strong, and attractive to peoples of all nations. Based on the prophecies in the Bible such a man will arise, and he will be successful in uniting the various nations to rule as a dictator.
The move to unite the world under one government has been active since the early 1950's, and in recent years this has become more of a reality as many nations have given up their sovereignty to the United Nations during armed intervention of conflicts (eg. Kuwait, Somalia, Bosnia). In these conflicts, the nations of the world contributed manpower and machinery to be used under the flag of the United Nations. The United States of America surrendered its sovereignty in these situations to much weaker nations by allowing its military to be controlled by these nations. In addition to these military actions the nations of the world also agreed to control trade and labor practices with international treaties such as NAFTA and GATT.
There is no dominant nation to provide leadership to the world, thus the stage is set for a man to arise out of the masses to unite the world as dictator.
The foundational building block of society, that element which has always been responsible for social order and peace, is the family, and it has been virtually destroyed. The family is to be a man, his wife and their children. The man provides for the wife and children, the wife nurtures and educates the children, and the children obey their parents. In a community of families, adults hold the other adults and children accountable for their actions. The family is based on marriage.
Marriage is an institution of God and therefore hated by Satan. The devil has worked very hard, primarily through communications media such as TV, movies, news journalists, and entertainment in general to convince women that marriage is detrimental to their freedom and fulfillment in life. Satan has deceived women into believing that they have the same sexual desire as men and that all differences are the result of culture. Satan has worked hard to divide men and women and have them at war with one another, and because of this, the violence between men and women has dramatically increased.
Civil war has been a constant theme of this age and unrest will continue into the end times: man vs. women, black vs. white, Moslem vs. Jew, Catholic vs. Protestant, Moslem vs. Christian, one Moslem faction vs. another Moslem faction, one black African tribe vs. another black African tribe, nation vs. nation, people vs. people. Whatever divides people into different groups, Satan uses to inspire hate, strife and violence.
Homosexuality and all sorts of perverse behavior are accepted as normal. The world dictator (anti-christ) himself will not have the normal sexual attraction to women and may be asexual. Many theologians believe that he will probably be openly homosexual as indicated in the Bible in the book of Daniel 11:37: "and he will show no regard for the gods of his fathers or for the desire of women". And therefore, after the rapture, more than likely marriage will be discouraged or illegal, and homosexual and lesbian relationships highly encouraged.
On the economic scene, the trend is toward poverty for the masses with wealth concentrated into the hands of very few people. These controllers of the wealth will be the kings of commerce and banking and also be the power behind politics of the world. Small businesses are merged into larger companies and the larger companies merge with themselves to increase profits. The result is huge multi-national companies that have no allegiance to any community, state, nation or people, whose only allegiance is to increased profits for management and shareholders. The result is workers who are little more than peasants and presidents of companies who are more and more like kings. It will be these "kings" who usher in the world dictator to protect their wealth and power. Expect all commerce, buying and selling, to be controlled by a mark on the right hand or forehead of every person who wants to participate in the economy. Only those people with the mark will be able to buy and sell, but the consequences of taking the mark is eternal damnation (Rev 14:9-11).
Therefore don't take that mark. You will have a very difficult time surviving, and probably won't, but you will save your soul. Again, don't take the mark on your right hand or forehead.
In the gospel of Matthew, chapter 24, Jesus spoke to his disciples and indicated to them that one of the signs of the time of the end of the world would be, "...as it were in the days of Noah so will the coming of the son of man be." We read in Genesis that in the days of Noah "the earth was filled with violence.". This speaks not only of the violence that men inflict on one anotherwar, civil wars, rape, brutality, murder, abortion, and other indiscriminate, random acts of violencebut the earth itself is also filled with violence. We see increasing earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, drought, lightning storms and unusual atmospheric phenomena. While all of these have existed in the past, over the last 50 years, the number and intensity of these conditions and the property damage associated with these natural catastrophes has increased. As the level of violence that the human species has inflicted on one another has increased, so has the violent reaction of the earth increased.
Signs of the Times
When Jesus' disciples asked Him about the signs that would be a precursor to His coming and the end of the age His response, recorded in Matthew 24, was:
This is an event that will not be hidden. The concept of the rapture has already been made known to the masses. It will be treated with ridicule, contempt and mockery by the world's media, but God will see to it that it will be highly publicized before it occurs just so that those left behind might still come to their senses. It will occur in the open, and everybody left behind will know someone who was raptured.
It will happen suddenly, unexpectedly, and lightning fast--"in the twinkling of an eye," as the Bible puts it. And there will be evidence all over the world that this event occurred. Some national leaders will disappear, celebrities in entertainment and professional sports will disappear, entire families will disappear, disbelieving spouses will see their mates vanish, children will disappear. Bank accounts, homes, cars, businesses and relationships will be left behind. The problem for the world's leaders will be trying to convince people that it didn't happen. Because if the world's leaders admit that it did happen then, logically, everything Christians preached about Jesus Christ being the Son of God, the Savior, the Messiah, the Prince of Peace, the Lord of Lords and King of Kings and everything that Jesus preached and taught must be true. And if all of this is true, then the only logical response would be to fall on one's knees before God in confession and repentance and absolute submission to every word of God (as revealed in the Bible). But all of this is diametrically opposed to the way of the world, which preaches freedom from the constraints of God's word, perverse sex, materialism and the devaluation of human life. So, although the rapture will shock everybody and will be covered in the media and everybody left will be aware of someone who is gone, the leaders of the world will begin their great deception, trying to convince the population left behind that there was no rapture.
How is this going to be accomplished? Well, pretty easily because most of the people left behind are already in a state of deception. They have been deceived into believing that Jesus is not the Messiah; they have been deceived into believing that the word of God is not true; they have been deceived into living a lifestyle that only brings constant pain and suffering instead of the freedom and paradise that God offers. The world's leaders will declare that there was no rapture, that a mass hysteria took place, and the news media will follow the party line. Then to make things easier, shortly after the rapture, one-fourth of the world's population will be decimated due to wars, famine and plague. Those who were raptured will be counted among the dead.
After the Rapture
Shortly after the rapture, a seven-year period known in the Bible as the Great Tribulation will take place. It will begin with the signing of a peace agreement between Israel and her enemies and it will end with the physical return of Jesus Christ to set up His kingdom on earth. In between, will be seven years of terror for those on earth. The following events and trends will take place in that seven-year period:
The Two Witnesses
These two men are God's gift to the people of the earth who refused to submit to the lordship of Jesus Christ prior to the rapture, but who will recognize the error in their life and seek God knowing the terrible mistake they have made. These two men will proclaim the gospel and provide hope for those left behind. Their message is for the salvation of the soul. They will have no message as to how you can avoid the hell that life on earth has become, because there is no hope to avoid that tribulation. If you are left on earth, then your destiny is to suffer and more than likely die. But you still have the hope of salvation. Listen to what these two men are preaching and turn to God.
The Bible does not say who these two men are. Many speculate that they are Elijah and Enoch, two ancient prophets of God who never died. Regardless, they will be responsible for many of the natural catastrophes that will wreak havoc on the property and economy of the earth. They will have the power to prevent rain, and there will be a 3 1/2 year drought on earth until they die. They will turn water into blood and cause all kinds of plagues on earth and, in general, make life miserable for those who are living on earth. Also, they will be invincible, as many will try to kill them only to be killed by their own hands. Those who attempt to blow them up will themselves be blown up; those who attempt to shoot them will have their guns explode in their hands; those who attempt to poison them will be poisoned by their own efforts. Only the world dictator will be able to kill them and only when God allows it.
The purpose of all the misery that these two witnesses inflict on the earth dwellers is to turn people back to God in repentance. The misery will be so great that when the world dictator does finally kill these two, the world will rejoice in a Christmas-like celebration, giving gifts to one another. Three and one-half days after their death they will be resurrected and, in full view of the entire population of the world, ascend to heaven at the command of God when He calls them to "Come up here." Shortly after he kills the two witnesses, the world dictator will declare himself to be God. He is the anti-christ.
The 144,000 Jewish Witnesses
Shortly after the rapture, God will call His army of 144,000 Jewish believers into service to provide a voice of hope for Jews throughout the world. The best friends and most staunch supporters of Jews have always been true, believing Christians. It was this element of the world's population that provided help and support for Israel and Jewish people. The rapture removed the Christian people from the earth and awakened the 144,000 to their purpose. These 144,000 preach to Jews worldwide that Jesus is the Messiah. These 144,000 will be spread out worldwide and more than likely go about in pairs, two by two, as Jesus instructed His disciples to do. It will be these 144,000 who will oppose Israel signing a peace treaty for protection; it will be the 144,000 who will identify the anti-christ for who he is; it will be the 144,000 who will warn Israel of the treachery of the anti-christ, and it will be the 144,000 who will lead the Jews worldwide to the hiding place prepared for them by God in the Judean desert. These 144,000 Jews are going to be strange people by normal standards: they will be celibate, very bold, fearless, spiritually strong and probably very much like John the Baptist. You can read more about the 144,000 witnesses in Revelation 14.
Hard currency will become obsolete. This is no surprise, as banks and governments have been working to eliminate currency, coin money and paper transactions for decades. Currency and coin is expensive to produce, lends itself readily for drug trafficking and, with high tech equipment, is too easily counterfeited. Banks desire to eliminate the teller position as an expense item, and with the elimination of paper checks and currency, all financial transactions can be handled with a computer. The debit card will become the tool for all personal financial transactions. However, at some point after the rapture, probably right after the two witnesses are killed, everyone will be required to get a mark on their right hand or forehead in order to buy and sell. Do not, do not, do not under any circumstances participate by receiving this mark. All those who receive this mark known as "the mark of the beast" are doomed for eternity. By taking this mark you are swearing allegiance to the anti-christ. You may as well attempt to enjoy life as best you can because eternity for you will be hell. It is at this point that God will have separated His followers from Satan's followers. Those who have taken the mark will persecute those without the mark. God will render judgment on those with the mark by inflicting them with a disgusting looking and very painful ulcer covering their bodies.
So how can a person without the mark survive and still buy and sell? Again, this will almost be impossible, but there will be people who are part of the anti-christ's regime who don't believe in the anti-christ; they are just "survivors" who pick the "winner" and seek to profit from that relationship. Therefore, save up for yourself gold; gold has always had value as money and always will, even in a cashless society. Identify one of these profiteers and seek to purchase food and living supplies from him. However, don't ever disclose to him how much gold you have and where it is. You want to be more valuable to him as a dealer than as a bounty. By the way, you will have a price on your head for not taking the mark. Obviously you won't be living an open life, as you will be in hiding somewhere at a remote location or in the forest on the outskirts of a large city. Your only goal will be to eat to live and hope to escape the militia hunting for you and those like you. Should you get caught, your fate will be either death or slavery.
If you receive this manual before the rapture and plan to be around after the rapture, then start storing up food and living supplies and put them into hiding in some remote and difficult to access area. You should include weaponry to defend yourself and medical supplies as part of your living supplies.
This era will be the most violent of times in the history of the world. Death, brutality and destruction will be part of everyday life. One of the defining characteristics of the last days following the rapture will be a lack of peace. There will be civil wars throughout the world: people will kill one another indiscriminately. Random acts of violence will fill people with fear. Car-jackings, home invasions, drive by shootings, and bombings will all increase with an intensity that will leave people with absolutely no sense of security.
In order to survive this time, you will need to remove yourself from society and live in a remote area that is difficult to access. Getting together with a group of like-minded people would provide additional support and safety.
As mentioned earlier, stock up on food, medicines, living supplies, weaponry and gold. You will need enough for 7 years. Don't plan on being able to supplement your food with hunting and fishing because the stocks of wild animals and fish will have been depleted and destroyed by the 3 1/2 year worldwide drought and three successive meteor-like or comet-like objects that strike the earth sometime after the rapture. The 3 1/2 year drought is brought on by the two witnesses. The first object from outer space to strike the earth will destroy 1/3 of all trees and all the green grass on earth. The second object, more like a meteor, strikes the sea and destroys 1/3 of all sea creatures and 1/3 of all shipping. The third object turns 1/3 of all fresh water poisonous and kills many people. Needless to say, all of this will also seriously deplete the food supplies for the world's population, causing food prices to skyrocket. Those people in the world who never before missed a meal or worried about food will become very familiar with hunger pangs and the feeling of going without food for long periods of time. This will be one of the causes of the increased violence as people become more self centered, short-tempered, and competitive for the food sources in short supply. As Jesus spoke to His disciples about these days, He said, "people will betray one another and hate one another...the love of many will grow cold."
Prior to the rapture, the world experienced an increase in health-related catastrophes, an increase in new infectious diseases and an increase in the return of diseases thought to have been eradicated or brought under control. The past two decades have brought on AIDS, EBOLA virus, flesh-eating bacteria, the return of tuberculosis, incurable gonorrhea, herpes and many other virtually incurable sexually transmitted diseases. After the rapture, things do not get better, as one quarter of the world's population will die as the result of wars, famine and plague. Sometime after the two witnesses are murdered and after people are required to take the mark on the right hand or forehead, there will be a terrible plague causing a loathsome and malignant ulcer on the bodies of those who have taken the mark. This will be a very ugly and very painful sore that will make life miserable for those who have it.
In addition to all this, because of the poor economic situation worldwide and the 3 1/2 year drought that depletes the world's supply of water, sanitation practices will deteriorate even in what were advanced nations in Europe and North America. With the short supply of water, there won't be sufficient water for flushing toilets, taking baths, washing clothes and transporting wastewater to treatment facilities. This will result in the increase of typhus, cholera, salmonella and E.coli infections.
Therefore, since you have decided to reject Christ's offer to join in the rapture, your concern is how to maintain good health in the post rapture era. You must build a supply of multiple vitamins with particular emphasis on anti-oxidants such as C and E and minerals. It will also be necessary to have a supply of disinfectants, particularly one that can be added to water to make it potable.
Above all, do not accept the mark of the beast on your right hand or forehead. If you do take the mark then nothing can be done for youyou will suffer the malignant ulcer making the rest of your life almost unbearable. Did you ever have a canker sore in your mouth? If so, then you know how painful that one little canker sore was. Now think of having canker sores all over your body, on your genitalia, in your mouth. Think how painful and unbearable your life will be. Then follow that misery with eternity in hell. Don't take that mark!
Signs In The Heavens--What Does It Mean?
The Timing of the Christian 'Rapture'?
Following is an interesting email from a reader that I am passing on to you; I will let you make your own conclusions:
In the past months there has been a new and exciting discovery. It has to do with facts from the calendar lining up with historical days. As I watched and saw a man disclose an amazing new insight, something else hit me with equal intensity. If this had been discovered five years ago there would be a thousand books about it in print today. The year 2015 and more so 2008 would have been discussed in never ending anticipation on every type of media. What came to mind was this verse.
Proverbs 25:2 It is the glory of God to conceal a matter...
As I heard the Pastor being interviewed about this new thing he discovered it was clearly to be seen that he did something that thousands of Bible students could have found at any time in the last two hundred years. This wasn't just a new Bible interpretation but a simple idea he looked into. God put this search on his mind at the appointed time. Many brilliant men have spent their lives searching the Bible for this kind of thing. Yet this was left buried until the year it may come to pass. If 2008 as it is linked to 2015 is truly a significant year in God's unfolding plan for the End Times or Last Days then God withheld it up to the last minute for His purposes.
This is about eclipses on the Jewish feast days or holidays as God set them up in the Bible. More so something I found even more amassing to do with 49 years (Jubilee), June 7, 1967 (The day Jerusalem first came under Jewish control in the Six Day War), Daniel 9:25 and Isaac Newton. Most of this has to do with easily obtainable facts and statistics that no one put together before now and something else I have no idea who came up with I heard on a DVD.
This occurs before the start of The Year of Jubilee (The Day of The Lord!
It started for me with an April 30, 2008 World Net Daily story on Blood Moons http://worldnetdaily.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.printable&pageId=63076 which linked to an interview on a show called Prophecy in the News. As I listened to the interview with Mark Blitz http://prophecyinthenews.com/ on the Internet I took up their offer to buy a DVD. It was recorded of Mark teaching at his church three days after his discovery about eclipses on the Jewish holidays in 2015. At three days he had not yet seen how amazing and compelling these eclipses would later prove to be. Sets of lunar eclipses falling on Jewish holidays spanning 600 years from 1493 to past 2100 happened only three times. They are: in 1948 (The year of the birth of Israel as a nation again), in 1967 (When Jerusalem was captured), and they will be in 2015. (SEE THE CHARTS BELOW:)
When Mark Blitz first went looking for eclipses on website, which lists them, it seems he ONLY went to see if there were any in 2015. The reason blew my mind. It was something as amazing as the eclipses. You can hear the audio of this DVD on his church's web site from 3-1-08, http://www.elshaddaiministries.us/audio/torah5768/20080301t22.html
Newton wrote over a million words of commentary on the books of Daniel and Revelation. They were released in reprint only in the past few years. He thought God had given us a way to see His "End Time" timetable. Newton thought the Second Coming of Jesus would be the start of a Jubilee year. The keeping of when these fifty year cycles called Jubilee years is to take place has been lost in time. They start after a count of 49 years on a Jewish Holiday, the Day of Atonement or Yom Kippur. That 50th year called a Jubilee Year would be a time of returning land to the original owners and freeing of slaves.
8 The Year of Jubilee
And you shall count seven sabbaths of years for yourself, seven times seven years; and the time of the seven sabbaths of years shall be to you forty-nine years. 9 Then you shall cause the trumpet of the Jubilee to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month; on the Day of Atonement you shall make the trumpet to sound throughout all your land. 10 And you shall consecrate the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a Jubilee for you; and each of you shall return to his possession, and each of you shall return to his family.
Hears where it gets exciting, Mark Blitz wanted to see if there were any eclipses in 2015 because he had heard about some other persons calculations. Here is a link I found when I Google searched June 7, 1967 and Daniel 9:25 it seems to follow along with what Marl Blitz was saying. I know nothing else about this site but I will put some quotes from it below. First Daniel 9:24,25,& 26 then "Newton's Riddle":
24 Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.
25 Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.
26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.
"Newton's Riddle" - Jim Bramlett - Feb 27, 2008
Newton was a devout believer in Christ and Bible scholar, fluent in ancient languages, and who translated directly from the Hebrew and Greek. He was unusually drawn to the prophet Daniel, which he began studying at age 12 and continued until he died at age 85. In fact, The Columbia History of the World, a secular history book, remarks, "At the end of his days he spent more time studying and writing about the prophecies in the Book of Daniel than he did in charting the heavens." Apparently, God Himself put in Newton's heart this burning desire to study Daniel, then gave him the key to the timing of Christ's return.
Could this be the final profound secret the Lord revealed to this godly genius near the end of his life -- a secret "accidentally" discovered in the Library of Congress and republished just in the last few years -- a secret so simple that most have missed it?
If Newton was correct in his interpretation of Daniel, the prophet to whom God gave specific timing, then the return of the Lord Jesus Christ will be very, very soon, indeed!
Newton's understanding of one key passage in Daniel chapter 9 is fundamentally different from that of most common interpretations. In about 550 B.C., God gave the prophet Daniel a view of history to the end. From Daniel 9:25, scholars usually add the "seven weeks (of years, or 49 years) and 62 weeks (434 years)" to get 483 years and calculate the time of Messiah's First Coming. However, Newton says there is no linguistic basis for adding those two numbers (49 and 434), and to do so is "doing violence to the language of Daniel." Newton says the two numbers separately speak of both the First and Second Coming, both being counted from the "going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem." Some commentators agree.
Newton says the "62 weeks," or 434-year part was fulfilled at the First Coming, and the "seven weeks," or 49-year part will apply to the Second Coming. And three centuries ago he saw in the Scriptures and wrote about the rebirth of Israel at a time when such a thought was preposterous. Amazingly by faith and understanding of the Scriptures, he foresaw a "friendly kingdom" someday again issuing the "commandment to restore and build Jerusalem." Now, centuries later, that "friendly kingdom" may have been the United Nations, which decreed Israel's rebirth in November, 1947, causing Israel to be reborn in May, 1948.
The Lord revealed to Newton, that Jesus would return 49 years from the date that Israel once again has control of Jerusalem (This occurred on June 7, 1967 when the Temple Mount was recaptured). Newton was also shown that the Second Coming of Jesus would be at the start of a Jubilee year on the Day of Atonement!
...if you use exactly 49 Jewish (360-day, prophetic) years from the day Israel captured the Temple Mount on June 7, 1967, you get 49 X 360 = 17640 days, which amazingly takes one exactly to September 23, 2015, The Day of Atonement 2015 and is the start of a new Jubilee year!
(End of Article)
Now back to this email. Remember Newton thought the second coming would start a Jubilee year, which starts on a Day of Atonement. Adding a 49 biblical 360-day years to one of the most significant dates in Bible prophecy and coming up to a Day of Atonement are 17,640 to 1 odds (360 days x 49 years)! Yet there it is 49 Jewish (360-day, prophetic) years from the day Israel captured the Temple Mount on June 7, 1967, you get 49 X 360 = 17640 days, which amazingly takes one exactly to September 23, 2015, the Day of Atonement 2015!
The reason to subtract seven years from 2015 is to account for the time named the Tribulation, the events in the book of Revelation. Most of us think the Rapture, the taking away of Believers happens just before the Tribulation starts. Another Newton site: http://www.csg.net/eschatology/Newton.htm
The following shows how the exact day was predicted when Jesus would ride into Jerusalem on a donkey, how the exact day was predicted when Israel would once again become a nation, and the start of the final Jubilee!
A Remarkable mathematical prophecy
From the Book of Daniel
"Palm Sunday"... 10th of Nisan ... 32 A.D.
The Prophecy ... Book of Daniel 9:24-25 (written around 500 BC)
"He (Messiah ... the King)
will be revealed
7 weeks + 62 weeks ( = 69 weeks of years)
AFTER the commandment to rebuild Jerusalem
and its walls,
THEN He (Messiah)
will be CUT-OFF (executed!)
but NOT for Himself." (He willingly died on the Cross as the sacrificial "Lamb of God".)
This is a mathematical prophecy . . .
- A week of years (shabua or shabuim) = 7 years
- "Cut-off". . . the Hebrew word used was karath, literally means "executed!"
- The "70th Week" (the last 7 years) of this prophecy is yet future ... the "Apocalypse."
God gave the Jews the most sophisticated calendar on Earth. It is both a Lunar and a Solar calendar. The Jewish calendar uses a 360 day lunar (and prophetic) year and then adds a 'Leap Month' on specific years to accurately coincide with the Solar cycle we use on our 'Julian' calendar ...
The Bible uses 360 day years for prophecies and expects us to add the appropriate 'leap months' on schedule. So, the easiest way to unravel this prophecy is to first convert this prophecy into days ...
1. Add 7 + 62 weeks of years = 69 weeks of years in this prophecy
2. Multiply 69 (weeks) x 7 (to get the total number of years in this prophecy) = 483 years
3. Multiply 483 years x 360 (to get the total number of days in this prophecy) = 173,880 days
So, the prophet Daniel, who lived 500 years before Jesus (Yeshua) wrote that from the day of the commandment to rebuild Jerusalem and its walls, until the coming Messiah would be 173,880 days!
(Note: This prophecy was also translated from Hebrew into Greek in the Septuagint almost 300 years before Jesus made His prophetic entry into Jerusalem, riding on a donkey.)
To convert the 173,880 days found in this prophecy into our 365.25 day solar years (the .25 adjusts for leap years) . . .
173,880 days ÷ 365.25 (days in a year) = 476 years (our solar 'Julian' calendar)
So, the prophet Daniel told us it would be 476 years from the "commandment to rebuild Jerusalem and its walls" to the time the Messiah of Israel would first be revealed to Israel (and to the world.)
The Commandment ...
This prophecy of the coming Messiah is both remarkable and extremely precise. There were other orders to rebuild the Temple, but, there was only one commandment to restore Jerusalem and its wall. On March 14th, 445 BC, as confirmed by modern archaeology, King Artexerxes I of Persia issued the commandment to rebuild Jerusalem and specifically included its wall (see Nehemiah 2:2-9 ... the book of Nehemiah records this account of rebuilding the city and its wall.)
Prophecy fulfilled ...
Now take the 476 years in this prophecy and simply start counting from March 14, 445 B.C. (when the command to rebuild the city Jerusalem and its wall was given) and you end on the exact year (even the very day) Jesus (Yeshua) rode 'triumphantly' into Jerusalem (Palm Sunday), being praised as King and Messiah by thousands upon thousands of the Jewish people who had gathered from all over for the Passover Holidays. Honored, yet lowly, riding on a donkey - exactly as another prophet, the prophet Zechariah, said He would ...
"Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion (Israel)!
Behold, your King (Messiah) is coming to you;
He is just and having salvation,
yet He is lowly and riding on a donkey."
(Zechariah 9:9 ... written around 500 B.C.)
Thus, on the 10th day of Nisan ("Palm Sunday") 32 AD ... 476 years after the command was given to rebuild the city and its wall ... Jesus (Yeshua) made His famous "triumphal entry" into Jerusalem, riding on a donkey. It was the only day that He ever allowed Himself to be honored as Messiah or King (Mark 11:1-12) as the people of Israel cried out and sang "Hosanna to the Son of David (this is a Psalm of the Messiah), blessed is He who comes in the name of the LORD!" from Psalm 118 ... (and all this took place just a few days before He was "executed" exactly as Daniel's prophecy said He would!)
A remarkable prophecy . . . simply count the years!
March 14, 445 B.C. Commandment is issued by Artexerxes I to rebuild the wall
to April 6, 32 A.D. "Palm Sunday", 10th of Nisan - Jesus welcomed as King and Messiah
= 477 years
- 1 year Subtract one for no "0" A.D. or B.C.
= 476 years Exactly!
Who else around 32 A.D. fulfilled all these many prophecies?
No one!!! Only Jesus (Yeshua) of Nazareth (born in Bethlehem in the line of King David) ... the promised Messiah!
This prophecy in the Book of Daniel (written over 500 years before Jesus was born) ALSO warned Jerusalem and the Jewish Temple ("Sanctuary") would be destroyed AFTER Messiah would be executed ...
"And the people of the prince who shall come ("People" = Roman Empire ... "Prince" = The Antichrist)
shall destroy the CITY (Jerusalem)
AND the TEMPLE ("Sanctuary")
Don't miss this ... the Bible warned the Jewish Temple would be destroyed AFTER Messiah was revealed and executed!
A NEW prophecy given: Jerusalem and the Temple would be destroyed ... (fulfilled by the Romans in 70 AD)
Right after the "Triumphal Entry," Jesus (Yeshua) wept over Jerusalem ... knowing the people of Israel would ignore this prophecy... and all the other prophecies of the Messiah which were so specific that God held them accountable! This is why the Temple was destroyed and the Jewish people were scattered and dispersed around the world . . .
Here, Jesus (Yeshua) issued a new prophecy and warned Israel WHY it would happen . . .
"Now as He (Jesus) drew near,
He saw the city (Jerusalem) and wept over it,
saying, If you had known, even you (the children of Israel),
especially in this your day, (this day the prophet Daniel prophesied about)
the things that make for your peace!
But now they are hidden from your eyes.
For days will come upon you when your enemies
will build an embankment around you,
and close you in on every side,
and level you, and your children within you,
to the ground;
and they will not leave in you (the Temple) one stone upon another,
BECAUSE you did NOT know the time of your visitation."
(Luke 19:41-44) (God held them accountable for not knowing the prophecies of Messiah!!!)
Thus, within that generation, in 70 A.D., 38 years AFTER Jesus Christ (Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew) spoke this prophecy and was Crucified ("cut-off"), Jerusalem was besieged and brutally destroyed when Titus Vespasian, with the Fifth, Tenth, Twelfth, and Fifteenth Roman Legions did build a Roman siege wall ("embankment") around the city, starving and slaughtering over a million Jews, and then tore down the Temple, stone by stone, to retrieve the gold that had melted when Roman soldiers (against orders) set the Temple on fire, thus leaving not one stone upon the other ... exactly as Jesus (Yeshua) had prophesied.
The Scriptures tell us there are two roles the Messiah must fulfill:
First, as the sacrificial Passover Lamb of God . . . ("once and for all")
Whose blood "washes us clean" and saves us from all our sins ...
and from the utter darkness and torment of Hell.
Second, as the Lion of the tribe of Judah . . .
To save Israel from her enemies ... as "KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS."
The Scriptures also tell us the Messiah will return . . . twice:
First, "as a thief in the night" . . . FOR all those who have endured in faith . . . the "Rapture."
Suddenly, to remove the all the faithful believers from Earth to shelter them from the "Apocalypse."
Second, "every eye shall see" . . . WITH those who waited and endured in faith.
Then Israel will rule over all nations in peace ... under Her Messiah and King.
Please Remember . . .
The Kingdom of Heaven is available to every man, woman, boy, and girl in this world, no matter who they are, where they live, or what they have done. It is freely offered to any and all who will receive it. Simply learn of Jesus (Yeshua), the promised Messiah, invite Him into your life as Lord, believe He died on the Cross for all of your sins and rose from the grave (proving there is a Kingdom of Heaven ... and a Hell). Learn of Him and believe in Him . . . for He was the only one who has ever loved you enough to substitute Himself for you on the Cross. He shed His blood, suffered, and died on the Cross to save you from your sins and from the utter darkness and torment of Hell, if you will accept it, believe it, and trust in it. That is why Jesus is called Savior. He now lovingly and graciously offers you life in Heaven (and we are warned it is a "take it or leave it" proposition.) We have to consciously receive it and accept it in faith. If you sincerely admit you have sinned (which means you will need a Savior to get into Heaven) and ask Jesus to come into your life and honestly try to stop doing (and saying) those things God says are wrong, you will go to Heaven ... and with open arms and tears of joy He will receive all who will come to Him in faith and in love ... It's God's Promise!!!
The only unpardonable sin is to reject God's love and His free offer of life in the Kingdom of Heaven by rejecting Jesus Christ (Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew) who stepped forth from Eternity ("from of old, from everlasting"... see Micah 5:2) ... not to condemn the sinner, but to save the sinner (from the torment of Hell) and who willingly and lovingly shed His blood on the Cross so we can be washed clean of all our sins. The Bible warns there will be no peace in our lives until we make peace with God through His Son, Jesus (Yeshua), the promised Messiah. The Bible also says there will be no peace in Israel or on Earth until Jesus (Yeshua), the Messiah returns . . .
"The Lord is my Shepherd . . ."
And Jesus Christ (Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew) graciously tells us,
"I am the good Shepherd.
The good shepherd gives his life for the sheep."
It is interesting to note the only prophecies found in other religions are either based on prophecies already found in the Scriptures, or point to a powerful leader who someday will rise (the coming Antichrist). The Bible warns to beware of this false messiah who will soon rise and will deceive many. God also makes it very clear there would be only one real Messiah. If you are approached by, or belong to a religion which denies Jesus-Yeshua is the promised Messiah, humbly ask them to show you the prophecies preparing the way and describing their prophet . . .
"In the beginning was the Word . . .
and the Word was with God,
and the Word WAS God.
And the Word became flesh
and dwelt among us,
and we beheld His glory,
the glory as of the only begotten
of the Father . . .
full of grace and truth.
He was in the world,
the world was made through Him,
and the world did not know Him.
He came to His own,
and His own did not receive Him . . ."
(Excerpted from the Book of John 1:1-14)

mathematical Bible prophecy
The Return of Israel ... May 14, 1948
"For I am God and there is no other.
I am God, and there is none like Me,
Declaring the end from the beginning,
and from ancient times
things that are not yet done . . ."
You are about to read one of the most fascinating and remarkable prophecies in the Bible. What makes it even more remarkable is what it implies. For when we realize how precisely this prophecy has been fulfilled after 2,500 years, we must realize all the Bible prophecies concerning Israel and the world including the coming 'Apocalypse,' the Battle of Armageddon, Messiah's Return, and the many promises and warnings concerning both Heaven and Hell will be fulfilled just as accurately and literally as the amazing prophecy presented here ...
The Prophecy ... Ezekiel 4:4-6
"Then God said to Ezekiel,
'Now lie on your left side for 390 days
to show Israel will be punished for 390 years
by captivity and doom.
Each day you lie there represents
a year of punishment ahead for Israel.
Afterwards, turn over and lay on your right side
for 40 days, to signify the years of Judah's punishment.
Each day will represent one year . . .'"
This Is A Mathematical Bible Prophecy . . .
Although a little obscure (and sophisticated) this is one of the most fascinating prophecies found in the Bible.
Here, we find God telling Ezekiel that each day he (Ezekiel) lies on his side will represent one year of punishment for the nation Israel (Israel + Judah) because of their iniquities (sins) against God . . .
So, we have:
390 days Judgment against the 10 northern tribes 'Israel'
+ 40 days Judgment against the 2 southern tribes 'Judah'
= 430 years Judgment against the nation of Israel
The Fulfillment of the Prophetic Judgment Begins . . .
In 606 B.C. Israel (Judah) was taken into captivity by Babylon for exactly 70 years ...
430 years of judgment determined against nation Israel
- 70 years fulfilled during the Babylonian captivity
= 360 years remaining in judgment against the nation of Israel
The Mystery of 360 Years . . .
There should have been a total of 360 years left in judgment against Israel after their release from Babylonian captivity by the Persian general Cyrus, exactly 70 years after the Babylonian captivity began (just as the prophet Jeremiah had prophesied before the captivity) ... but where was the remaining 360 year judgment in Israel's history??!!
The 7X Factor of God's Judgment . . .
Bible scholars could not find any specific captivity or dispersion that fulfilled these 360 years left in the judgment until a close look in the book of Leviticus revealed a startling prophetic warning ...
"And after all this, if you do not obey Me,
then I (God) will punish you seven times more for your sins."
"Then, if you walk contrary to Me,
and are not willing to obey Me,
I (God) will bring on you seven times more plagues,
according to your sins."
"And after all this,
if you do not obey Me,
but walk contrary to Me,
then I (God) also will walk contrary to you in fury;
and I, even I will chastise you seven times for your sins.:
"I (God) will scatter you among the nations
and draw a sword after you;
your Land shall be desolate
and your cities waste."
The 7X factor of God's judgment against nation Israel. God warned Israel if they continued in their disobedience He would multiply their judgment by seven times! Remember, as noted throughout these prophetic studies, God says what He means and He means what He says!
Prophecy Fulfilled . . .
Now, let's apply the 7X factor to the remaining 360 years of judgment against nation Israel in this remarkable mathematical prophecy . . .
360 Remaining years of judgment
x 7 The prophetic '7X' factor
= 2,520 Years of judgment remained against nation Israel
God gave the Jews the most sophisticated calendar on Earth. It is both a Lunar and a Solar calendar. The Jewish calendar uses a 360 day lunar (and prophetic) year and then adds a 'Leap Month' on specific years to accurately coincide with the Solar cycle we use on our 'Julian' calendar ...
The Bible uses 360 day years for prophecies and expects us to add the appropriate 'leap months' on schedule. So, the easiest way to unravel this prophecy is to first convert this prophecy into days ...
x 360 days
= 907,200 days of judgment remained against nation Israel after the Babylonian captivity
Now, to convert the 907,200 days found in this prophecy into our 365.25 day solar (Julian) years (the .25 adjusts for leap years) . . .
907,200 days ÷ 365.25 days = 2,483.78 years of God's judgment remained
With this information, let's look at this remarkable prophecy again . . .
606 B.C Israel taken into Babylonian captivity
- 70 Years for 70 years
= 536 B.C. End of first 70 years of judgment
+ 2483 Years Now add the 2,483 years remaining in this judgment
+ 1 Year Add 1 year because there is no "0" B.C. or A.D.
= 1948 AD! End of judgment against nation Israel
Israel Back in Her Land as a Nation . . . in 1948!
Judah (Israel) was taken into captivity by the Babylonians in 606 B.C. They were released from captivity 70 years later by the Persians in 536 A.D., exactly as the prophet Jeremiah had prophesied, but their land was still under the control of the Persians. The Persians were later conquered by the Greeks, and the land of Israel remained under Greek control. The Greeks were then conquered by Rome and the land of Israel remained under Roman control. After failed rebellions against Rome around 70 A.D. and another around 100 years later, the Romans removed the Jews from the land of Israel, dispersed them around the world and then renamed the land 'Palestine' after the enemies of Israel. Then, after 2,500 years, and for the first time since the Babylonian captivity in 606 B.C., the world watched as Israel once again appeared on the world map as a sovereign nation, on May 14, 1948 ... exactly when the Bible said it would!
"Thus says the Lord God:
'Surely I will take the children of Israel
from among the nations,
wherever they have gone,
and will gather them from every side
and bring them into their own land."
(Ezekiel 37:21) ['Nations' (plural)...this is not their return from Babylon]
JERUSALEM ... What makes this mathematical Bible prophecy even MORE remarkable is if you take this same prophetic timeline which starts on the year of Babylon's conquest of the nation Israel and ends with Israel once again raised as a nation in 1948 ... now ... shift the exact same prophetic timeline to start on the year when Babylon returned and destroyed Jerusalem (19 years later) ... and (remarkably) this prophetic timeline's "end-point" now falls on the exact year Israel once again took sovereign control over Jerusalem in 1967 (after the "Six Day War.)
For a more precise study of this remarkable prophetic fulfillment of Ezekiel's prophecy in 1948 and 1967 read here ... Ezekiel's 430 day prophecy - Detailing the length of the "Desolations of Jerusalem" and the "Servitude of the Nation"- (Chuck Missler K-House Bible study)
A Future Warning For Israel and the World . . .
How has the world reacted to such a profound fulfillment of Bible prophecy? A miracle that can be proven and documented by simply looking at the Bible and a map ... and then simply adding the years. It has ignored it! Just as God has warned most of the world will ignore the Bible warnings of the coming 'Apocalypse' (also called the 'Time of Jacob's (Israel's) Trouble', the 'Great Tribulation,' and the 'Day of God's Wrath.') For the Bible also warns a series of terrible prophetic events which will change the world forever would begin to unfold immediately after Israel became a Nation in 1948! If you diligently study the prophecies and watch the world news from a Biblical perspective you will soon find many of the prophetic events the Bible warns us about are now in the process of being fulfilled! God also promises to shelter and protect all those who will sincerely return to Him in love and in faith before the coming time of trouble. Remember, God uses prophecy to prove He is who He says His is, and to authenticate all the warnings and the promises found in the Bible . . .
The Most Important Prophetic Warning Found in the Bible . . .
Our eternal destiny ... Heaven or Hell. Please remember, the Bible tells us Heaven is available to every man, woman, boy, and girl in this world, no matter who they are, where they live, what they have done, or how old they are. Eternal life in the Kingdom of Heaven is freely offered ... the Bible tells us Jesus-Yeshua, the Messiah, is "King of kings and Lord of lords"... King above both Earth and Heaven. Learn of Jesus-Yeshua, the Messiah, invite Him into your life as Lord and Savior, believe He died on the Cross for all of your sins and rose from the grave (which fulfilled Bible prophecies and proved there is life waiting for us in either Heaven or in Hell after this body dies). Learn of Him and believe in Him ... for He was the only one who ever loved you enough to substitute Himself for you on the Cross. He lovingly paid your debt. The Bible clearly warns we can't 'earn' our way into Heaven by our 'good deeds.' Jesus shed His blood, suffered, and died on the Cross to save us from our sins and from the utter darkness of Hell, if you will accept it, believe it, and trust in it. That is why Jesus-Yeshua is called Savior. He now lovingly and graciously offers life in Heaven (and we are warned it is a "take it or leave it" proposition.) We have to consciously receive it and accept it in faith. If you sincerely admit you have sinned, and ask Jesus-Yeshua to come into your life, and repent by honestly trying to stop doing (and saying) all those things God says are wrong and are against His Law, you will go to Heaven ... and with open arms and tears of joy He will receive all who will come to Him in faith and in love ... It's God's Promise!!!
The only unpardonable sin is to reject God's love by rejecting Jesus-Yeshua, the promised Messiah, who lovingly and willingly died for our sins ... who stepped forth from Eternity ("from old, from everlasting ... see Micah 5:2) and put on the form of Man ... to save sinners ... lots of them ... any and all who would believe and trust in Him ... from the eternal loneliness, darkness, and torment of Hell. He humbly and lovingly laid down and offered His life on the Cross as the sacrificial 'Lamb of God' (the ultimate and final sin offering for both the children of Israel and for the whole world ... EXACTLY as the prophets said He would) so we can be washed clean of all our sins. He took the penalty for all of our sins upon Himself. But, we have to believe it, accept it, and receive it in our hearts, in faith. The Bible warns there will be no peace in our hearts until we make peace with God through His Son, Jesus-Yeshua, the promised Messiah, who died for us, so we might live in Heaven through Him. The Bible also warns there will be no peace in Israel or on Earth until the Messiah returns . . .
The Bible Warns There Is No Other Way Into Heaven . . .
Jesus-Yeshua, the promised Messiah, knew what was about to happen when He prayed, "If there is any other way" three times in the garden the night before He was crucified. He was telling us something very important. If you believe there was, or is, any other way to gain entrance into Heaven other than believing in the One who suffered for our sins on the Cross, then you must deny the Bible is God's Word and believe Jesus simply suffered and died needlessly and in vain on the Cross. However, God tells us in the Bible Jesus-Yeshua, the promised Messiah, lovingly laid down His life for you and for me so we might one day enter into His Kingdom of Heaven ...
"The Lord is my shepherd . . ."
And Jesus-Yeshua graciously tells us,
"I am the good shepherd.
The good shepherd gives his life for the sheep."
"Let not your heart be troubled;
you believe in God, believe also in Me.
In My Father's house are many mansions (abiding places);
if it were not so, I would have told you.
I go to prepare a place for you.
And if I go to prepare a place for you,
I will come again and receive you to Myself,
that where I am (in Heaven),
there you may be also."

Urgent Warning: The Hebrew Scriptures Give Us The EXACT Day Of The End
Israel Ben Barzle
Yehoshua Ben Barzle
The information I am about to put forth has never been put into print to my knowledge. It is groundbreaking information pulled from the pages of the Hebrew Prophets that will impact you and your family in the days ahead. My suggestion as you read through the following paragraphs is that you spend some time in very sincere conversation with the Creator of this world.
On a personal note, I am not a date-setter kind of guy. In fact, I usually go out of my way to debunk the date-setters, as I believe when the date that has been set does not come to pass, it harms the name of the G-d of Abraham. However, in a pure biblical sense, it is very difficult to analytically refute what I am about to share. So please understand dear readerit is with earnest, G-dly fear that I impart, not what could be, but what WILL BE, one of the most important days of our collective lives.
Israel Ben Barzle
In recent weeks we have seen a series of critical Hebraic dates and events converge. We have witnessed the end of a Shemitah that did not clear our biblical debt; the final series of Blood Moon Tetrads announcing an upcoming, final war in Israel; the blatant, public rebellion of the Western Powers on Yom Kippur 2015; the all-important commencement of the Seventieth Jubilee cycle; the invasion of the Middle East by Russian forces; the beginnings of a final intifada in the land of Israel. All of these events have come together all at once. And, if you are scripturally sensitive at all, you cannot help but realize that something big is getting ready to happen on the prophetic horizon.
But the big question has always been: so when exactly will the final shoe drop? When will all these prophecies actually culminate in a tangible, climactic way?
Folks, like most things in the Hebrew Scriptures, the information is there. It is simply a matter of us putting aside all the disinformation we have been taught by the so called experts, and focusing in on the very plain speaking messages the Creator has provided for all of us to see and understand for ourselvesnot just from the paid professionals trying to sell books.
Think about it. Why would the Creator of this world give us information regarding super critical issues that could only be understood and disseminated by the overeducated, religious elite? Last I checked, G-d chose common, ordinary people to understand and share His truths. Moses was an adrift Levite baby who became the greatest prophet of all time. Abraham was a lowly sheepherder who became a chosen nation. Joseph was a slave and prisoner who ultimately ascended to Second-In-Command of a world superpower. David was a mere shepherd who became a king, the youngest in his family, and so insignificant he was initially overlooked.
So, as we venture into the subject matter, please keep in mind that G-d most often uses the small, irrelevant, everyday people like you and I to understand His great mysteries. And most often the answers to these mysteries have been there all along, waiting for us to put aside the preconceived ideas, and to be discovered in a humble desire to really, actually know the One who gave us our very existence.
Hidden in Plain Sight
When it comes to prophecy, we all want to know when. This is especially true as we begin to see factors greater than ourselves coming together in a prophetic, perfect storm. As thinking, breathing creatures that want to keep thinking and breathing, all of us want to know when something big might happen that would potentially impact our lives, and the lives of our loved ones. This becomes especially true when it is on the scale of Creator versus Mankind, something warned about over and over in the prophetic scriptures. So does the Creator give us this level of critical intel in these Scriptures for real? Does He give us something we really can sink our prophetic teeth into, something so absolute that we can take it to the bank and deposit it under our ultimate fate account?
Yes, He quite literally does. And folks, it has been hidden in plain sight all along.
Haggai was a prophet to Judah during the time shortly after Judah had returned to the land of Israel from Babylonian captivity. Haggai was a critical player used by G-d to prophesy during the after-exile Temple restoration process. Haggai, along with Zechariah, and possibly Malachi, also finalized the Hebrew Scriptural Canonthe Old Testament.
Most often overlooked, the Prophet Haggai was given some absolute key Last Day prophecies. These prophecies are connected to five primary issues:
The Final Temple
The Redemption of the Twelve Tribes of Israel
The Final Overthrow of the Gentile Kingdoms
A Great Geophysical Shaking of the Planet
The Restoration of the Davidic King-line through a Messiah
All five of these issues are the primary issues of the Last Days. These five prophetic issues form a baseline of Old Testament prophetic understanding, elements of which are found in every single prophetic book of the Hebrew Scriptures. The prophet Isaiah in chapter 13 regards this time of the great shaking of the heavens and the earth, both on a planetary and geopolitical level, as the Day of YHWH. The Prophet Joel in chapter 3 connects this exact time of great geophysical shaking with the liberation of Jerusalem, the destruction of the gentile enemy, the restoration of the children of Israel. The Prophet Habakkuk in chapters 2-3 ties together the restoration of the Tribes, the restoration of the Temple, the overthrow of the gentile kingdoms, a great shaking of the earth, a pole shift, and a loud noise emanating over the whole planet. And the list goes on and on.
But where other prophets unfold various details and nuances of these five critical issues in creative fashion with colorful terms and narratives, Haggai the Prophet gives us a full course meal of meat and potatoes. His words are blunt, provocative, and to the prophetic point.
At the conclusion of the Book of Haggai, he summarizes his prophecies using terms that are uber-clear.
Consider now from this day and upward, from the four and twentieth day of the ninth month, even from the day that the foundation of the Lords temple was laid, consider it.
19 Is the seed yet in the barn? yea, as yet the vine, and the fig tree, and the pomegranate, and the olive tree, hath not brought forth: from this day will I bless you.
20 And again the word of the Lord came unto Haggai in the four and twentieth day of the month, saying,
21 Speak to Zerubbabel, governor of Judah, saying, I will shake the heavens and the earth;
22 And I will overthrow the throne of kingdoms, and I will destroy the strength of the kingdoms of the heathen (gentiles); and I will overthrow the chariots, and those that ride in them; and the horses and their riders shall come down, everyone by the sword of his brother
23 In that day, saith the Lord of hosts, will I take thee, O Zerubbabel, my servant, the son of Shealtiel, saith the Lord, and will make thee as a signet: for I have chosen thee, saith the Lord of hosts.
In the prophecy of Haggai we see all five of these primary issues of biblical prophecy. I do not care if you are Jew, Christian, or some derivative, any biblically seasoned person will agree that these five issues are the core of OT prophecy, however someone may slice and dice them together theologically.
But notice something strange. Haggai gives us a specific day: the twenty-fourth day of the ninth month
It gets even more provocative when we look to the ancient Hebrew and view the first sentence of Haggais summary in its literal meaning.
Consider now from this day and upward
This phrase in Hebrew is suwmev na lebeb-com men hayom hazah vemaalah. Unfortunately, what we have here in these words in our English Bibles is a rather feeble translation. This phrase incorporates a sturdy Hebrewism, the use of phraseology that is commonly recognized by a Hebrew reader to have a very specific meaning when used in a sentence. In addition, the phrase here even adds a special word meaning to implore important attention. In other words, what it is saying here to the reader is: PLEASE! Take in the importance of what is being said here.
The phrase suwmev na lebeb-com means literally to please set your heart on this. The phrase men hayom hazah vemaalah means from the dayof this (day) and higher. In essence, what it is stating here in proper Hebrew, in a comprehensible paraphrase is:
Please! Set your heart on this day, and even more so, to the same day later on which will have a higher implication.
Dear reader, this is absolutely clear in the Hebrew. This day, the twenty-fourth day of the ninth month, had some meaning in Zerubbabels time. But, according to the prophecy, it has an even higher ultimate meaning in a prophetic sense, and this is what the Hebrew here is telling us.
In fact, the prophecy of Haggai is doggedly determined that the reader zero in on this specific day. The twenty fourth day of the ninth month is stated no less than four times in the last chapter of the Book of Haggai, and it is precisely outlined by Haggai as the day to prophetically watch for.
This is astounding.
And, if we read the entire chapter of Haggais prophecy double checking for context, we will see that the Temple of which he is prophesying can only be the Latter Day Temple (vs 7-9), a Temple that will be much greater than the original. He speaks of the desire of all nations to come, a direct reference to the coming King Messiah (vs 7). Haggai also clarifies upfront that this is no ordinary earthquake were talking aboutall the gentile nations will be shaken (vs 7).
Thus, we can see why the Prophet Haggai asks us to set our hearts on this particular day. And if we take the time to break it out, we see that Haggai gives us a time sensitive, very well-defined summary of these five core issues using specific idioms and terms that are very well documented as to their meaning elsewhere in the Scriptures.
The Final Temple
Consider (set your heart on it) now from this day and upward, from the four and twentieth day of the ninth month, even from the day that the foundation of the Lords temple was laid, consider it (set your heart on it).
The Redemption of the Twelve Tribes of Israel
Is the seed (all of Abrahams seed) yet in the barn? yea, as yet the vine (House of Israel), and the fig tree (the House of Judah), and the pomegranate (the Davidic King-line), and the olive tree (the final restored Israel), hath not (yet been) brought forth: from this day will I bless you.
A Great Geophysical Shaking of the Planet
And again the word of the Lord came unto Haggai in the four and twentieth day of the month, saying,
Speak to Zerubbabel, governor of Judah, saying, I will shake the heavens and the earth;
The Final Overthrow of the Gentile Kingdoms
And I will overthrow the throne of kingdoms, and I will destroy the strength of the kingdoms of the heathen (gentiles); and I will overthrow the chariots, and those that ride in them; and the horses and their riders shall come down, everyone by the sword of his brother
The Restoration of the Davidic King-line
In that day (the twenty fourth day of the ninth month), saith the Lord of hosts, will I take thee, O Zerubbabel, my servant, the son of Shealtiel, saith the Lord, and will make thee as a signet (the kings ring): for I have chosen thee, saith the Lord of hosts.
To drive the point home leaving absolutely no doubts, we must ask ourselves: is Haggai speaking Latter Day prophecy here, or is this just Old Testament history that already came about?
OK did ANY of these five issues come to pass in Zerubbabels time?
They did not. None of these events in Haggais prophecy occurred in Zerubbabels time. A final Temple, perpetually blessed, was not built. All of Israel, all of Abrahams seed from all Twelve Tribes, were not restored; nor are they still. The planet did not experience a catastrophic, world-wide shaking in Zerubbabels time. All of the gentile kingdoms were not overthrown, and, as of today, are still in control. Since the fall of Jerusalem in Jeremiahs time a descendant of King David has never held the official title of King of Israel with the official royal signetnever. In fact, Zerubbabel was merely made a vassal governor under the authority of a foreign power, never a king of Israel. The prophet Zechariah, Haggais contemporary, states in detail that Zerubbabel was not a final prophetic product, but was a foreshadowing figure symbolic of a coming king who would be involved in the final restoration of the Temple.
None of these prophecies have come to pass. But we are told throughout the Scriptures that these events WILL HAPPEN in the futureand according to Haggais words these prophecies will come to conclusion on the twenty fourth day of the ninth month on the Hebrew calendar.
The 24th of Kislev
The twenty fourth day of the ninth month is the 24th day of the month of Kislev on the Hebrew calendar. It is a fascinating day in history, as it is a day we are given some precise, prophetic shadow pictures leading up to the final Great Event.
In 167 BC a portion of the Jews in Israel revolted against Greek rule in their land. This revolt was led by a family: the Maccabees. They were a family of rural priest-warriors from the tribe of Levi. The Maccabean revolt was eventually successful, and it was in 160 BC that the Jews retook Jerusalem, liberated the Temple, and threw off their foreign conquerors in the land.
The specific day that this occurredthe liberation of the Temple Mount from the pagan Greeks? You guessed itthe twenty fourth day of the ninth month, the 24th of Kislev.
This great day of liberation is memorialized in Jewish historical tradition, and is still celebrated today, although many of us may not know some of the more fascinating circumstances.
When the Jews and the Levitical Priesthood reclaimed the Temple on the 24th day of Kislev in 160 BC, they searched for the proper oil to burn in the Menorah lamps in the Temple. This particular Temple oil had to go through a very specific process in order to be pure enough to be used for G-ds sacred service in His house, as outlined by the Torah. Finding only one days worth of oil, the priests decided to go ahead and burn what they had until proper Temple oil could be produced, a process that took about a week. Miraculously, one days worth of Temple oil lasted for eight days. These eight days are incredibly special days in the Jewish tradition. These days are celebrated as the Jewish Festival of Lights, known world-wide as Hanukah.
Thus, the 24th of Kislev, the twenty fourth day of the ninth month, is the literal origin of Hanukah. It is the day that signifies the release of the Temple from foreign domination.
Flash forward to December 9th, 1917. Prior to this date, Jerusalem had been under Turkish Muslim domination for centuries. It was General Lord Allenby of the British Army who successfully liberated the Holy City from Muslim control. The day the military offensive concluded, and Jerusalem and the Temple Mount were free once more was .
The twenty fourth day of the ninth month, the 24th of Kislev.
Folks, there is just way too much coincidence going on here; and coincidence is a non-kosher word to a religious Hebrew. There is just no such thing when you are dealing with a G-d who is a master at controlling circumstances in such a clear-cut fashion. On both occasions, G-d liberated the Temple Mount on the 24th of Kislev.
So what we see in these events leading up to the final Great Event are shadow pictures that the Creator has perfectly provided to us to validate and establish the fact that the twenty fourth day of the ninth month, the 24th of Kislev, is the day that the G-d of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob will intervene permanently on the present fate of the Temple Mount and complete the restoration of the Twelve Tribes of Israel to their Temple. According to Him, it is on this day that He will shake the geophysics of the planet like never before in history. It is on this day He will bring about the end of the supremacy of the gentile nations in our world with intention. And it is on this day that He will officially reestablish the destiny of the Davidic King-line.
So What Does This Mean?
This is where the rubber meets the road.
There will be spectacular eventsmind-blowing prophetic events leading up to this day. Pieces of the End-time puzzle will fall into place systematically, as the course of human history comes to a climax. However, the Creator through His Word points to this particular day as the watershed prophetic day that His Divine plan is implemented in full measure.
For His reasons, the Creator has chosen this day, the 24th of Kislev, the twenty fourth day of the ninth month, to be the day that He universally shakes the heavens and earthand He states this in clear terms. You can biblically count on the fact that on the 24th of Kislev, at some point in the future, there will be a catastrophic, geophysical event, across the entire planet, the likes which we have never seen before. There will most likely be surreal, earth-shaking events leading up to this day as the prophetic birth pangs heighten, but the result of the geophysics of this particular day will be decisive, putting into play the final scenes of the prophetic scenario.
Does this all sound just way too good to be true? I mean, is G-d being this forthright with us as to give us a precise time as to when the End is to finally come about?
Yes, I know, we are all used to hearing from the experts that we just cannot figure this whole thing out without buying their latest book.
But the Creator Himself puts these money-driven charlatans in their place. It states in the Hebrew Scriptures that G-d does nothing of any prophetic magnitude without personally providing a prophet to tell us exactly what is about to occur.
Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid? shall there be evil in a city, and the Lord hath not done it?
7 Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.
8 The lion hath roared, who will not fear? the Lord God hath spoken, who can but prophesy?
Haggai is that Prophet, and he has given us a straight forward, concrete point of timing to work with. And, by the way, notice Haggai does not ask for any financial compensation.
This leads us to the prophetic nitty-gritty. Understanding that we are in the final season of biblical prophecy, as we have entered the Seventieth Jubilee cycle, here are the upcoming dates of the 24th of Kislev, the twenty fourth day of the ninth month on the Hebrew calendar:
The 24th of Kislev in 2015 is December 7th. This is just a few short weeks away.
The 24th of Kislev in 2018 is December 24th, on Christmas Eve.
The 24th of Kislev in 2018 is December 12th.
In conclusion, please hear me. This idea of a specific day is not coming from some fringe lunatic writer telling you to sell your home and gather on a remote hillside somewhere to await a rapture. The details we have included in this article are coming straight from the ancient prophets themselves. The conclusion that the 24th of Kislev is the Creator-given day that five core prophetic issues of the Old Testament are decisively concluded comes from the data, from the analysis of what the Hebrew language states in the prophecies of Haggai in crystal clear Hebraic terms.
So you decide .
Please take this information and make a hard evaluation of where events are right now, and where they are most likely going. It is getting late in the game. Many prophetic factors are converging, and things look to accelerate in the weeks ahead. We have brought the 24th of Kislev to our readers attention because we believe it is time to come to grips with where we are at in the prophetic timeline. Reality is bearing down on us. We are in the final cycle.
And the Creator is giving us real answers.

"OCT. 29, 2008 THRU SEPT. 23, 2015
HAVE WE ENTERED THE FINAL 7 YEARS???!"
Oct. 29, 2008, the first day of the Final 7 Years, or the beginning of the 70th
week of Daniel?!!! I believe the evidence that I am about to present to
you makes a VERY strong case for this to be the truth. Most of you
believe that this could not be the case because there has been no Rapture yet,
and no confirming of a 7-year peace treaty by the Antichrist. I believe
there was an event one week ago on Oct. 29, 2008, that thrust the world right
smack dab into the Final 7 Years of human history, as we know it. Please
be patient enough to read this entire letter because if what I am about to
present to you is the truth, then all of our lives will never be the same
I would like to briefly introduce myself, although some of you will remember me. I have written a couple of letters to Five Doves a year ago, and a few in 2004, and in 2000-2001, and several in the late 1990s. My ministry has consisted of graduating from a Bible Institute, pastoring 2 churches, being an evangelist on end-times prophecy and speaking in dozens of churches on this subject, and writing 36 different tracts on the 2nd Coming of Christ. We now have almost 10 million tracts in circulation. I have had numerous conversations with Jim Bramlett and had dinner with him a couple of times at the International Bible Prophecy Conference in Tampa, Florida. I have attended numerous Bible Prophecy Conferences over the years, usually with my own display table to offer my tracts, bumper stickers, tapes, Rapture t-shirts, etc. Many of you know Bonnie Gaunt, who has written several fascinating books on the end times and the Bible Codes, and appeared on TV on the 700 Club. Bonnie and I hosted a summer-long crusade on the End Times in our home city a few years ago.
Despite all of the above, I do not consider myself to be the in-depth student of end time prophecy that some of you on Five Doves are. Like most of you, I have been wrong on different things pertaining to the last days before and will probably be wrong again in the future. I have been waiting anxiously for somebody on Five Doves to see what I saw take place one week ago on Oct. 29, 2008, but nobody has come forth with it yet. Ted Porter is the only one who has come close.
Like most of you, I have been thrilled and fascinated by the abundance of evidence pointing to 2008 thru 2015 as the Final 7 Years. It has been, and STILL IS, OVERWHELMING. The only two years in my 35 years of studying the end times that have come this close to creating this much evidence and excitement have been 1998 and 1988. Notice, all 3 years ends in 8, the number of new beginnings.
The evidence for the autumn of 2015 being the Rapture of the Bride and the end of the Final 7 Years seems to be staggering. Some of you have given up for this year because we are now into November and past the Feast Days for 2008. I hope what I am about to present to you will renew your hope that 2008--2015 are indeed the Final 7 Years before Christ returns for His Bride.
During my attendance at numerous Bible Prophecy Conferences, there has been one speaker who has earned the respect of most all attendees and been the most sought-after speaker, and the one who has the biggest crowds around his book table. It is not Jack Van Impe or Hal Lindsey. It is in-depth Bible Prophecy scholar J.R. Church, of Prophecy in the News, author of Prophecies in the Psalms and numerous other books on the end-times. J.R. has been consistent in his belief that the 70th week of Daniel has to be during a 7-year Sabbatical cycle. I have seen him get excited about the possible Rapture during 1987, 1994, 2001, and 2008 because these years were the beginning of 7-year Sabbatical cycles. With the autumn of 2008 thru the autumn of 2015 being another 7-year Sabbatical cycle, it seems the perfect time for the beginning of the 70th week of Daniel to begin, AND I BELIEVE IT HAS!!!
So much evidence has come forth this year concerning 2015, including the lunar and solar eclipses right before and right after Feast of Atonement, Sept. 23, 2015. Jesus told us there would be evidence of his 2nd Coming in the sun, moon, and stars. Do you believe Him??? According to Bonnie Gaunts Jubilee Study in her Aug. 10, 2006, letter on Five Doves, and several others, the autumn of 2015 begins not just a new Sabbatical year but also a JUBILEE YEAR!!! WOW!!! That only happens once every 50 years.
Ted Porter of Five Doves has been pointing to this same exact 7-year period of Oct. 29, 2008 thru Sept. 23, 2015, for being the the Final 7 Years for quite some time and has even written a booklet about it. I urge you to use the search engine on Five Doves and type in Ted Porter. He will give you much more information about this 7-year period that began last week than I can give you here. 7 X 7 = one Jubilee cycle. It seems extremely likely that God would give Israel one Jubilee cycle from the highly significant day of June 6-7, 1967, when they recaptured their holy city of Jerusalem. 7 X 7 X 360 days (a Jewish year) from that all-important day of June 6-7, 1967, takes you to Feast of Atonement, Sept. 23, 2015, right to the day!!! Amazing!!! This should be the Final Day of the Final 7 Years, when Jesus returns at the Battle of Armageddon. Everything points to this being the case.
On Oct. 13, 2008, Ted Porter wrote to Five Doves an article entitled, When is Jesus Returning? The Answer is 42! In that article, Ted did an awesome job of telling us why the number 42 has been presented as the one number in the Bible that means the 2nd Coming of Christ. The re-capturing of Jerusalem on June 6-7, 1967, which most prophetic scholars believe started the final generation before the 2nd Coming of Christ, plus 42 JEWISH YEARS takes us to Oct. 29, 2008, which should be the first day of the Final 7 Years. I have just showed you TWO AMAZING CALCULATIONS THAT TAKE YOU TO THE FIRST DAY AND THE LAST DAY OF THE 7OTH WEEK OF DANIEL, THE FINAL 7 YEARS. It is my conviction that we entered this 70th Week of Daniel on Oct. 29, 2008.
On Oct. 27, 2008, Jerry Grenough wrote to Five Doves with the article entitled, It All Fits for 2008 Rapture. In that article he wrote, that Wednesday, Oct. 29, 2008, will be Day One of the Tribulation. Ted Porter and others have come up with the same calculations. Can it be just a coincidence that there are so many things pointing to this 2520-day period, this Sabbatical cycle, this Jubilee cycle, with everything seeming to conclude on Feast of Atonement, Sept. 23, 2015, and therefore, starting on October 29, 2008??? Never in history has there been such a perfect fit for the Final 7 Years, not even close. Do you honestly think things can go on like this for another 50 years (2 complete Jubilee cycles? Do you even think things can continue for another Sabbatical cycle, or another 7 years? It appears highly unlikely.
We have what many considered a 7-year warning on 9/11/2001. We have the economies of the world falling apart and ready to plunge right into the economic doomsday that is presented in the Book of Revelation. We have the world poised on the brink of World War III. We have Iran and Israel poised to unleash weapons of mass destruction at each other, not to mention the U.S., Russia, China, and others. We have the likely Antichrist poised to become President of the worlds only superpower. Can anybody say, THE STAGE IS NOW SET!!!
Most of you are probably ready to agree with me that the stage is now set. Many of you will agree with all of the above evidence that Oct.29, 2008 thru Sept. 23, 2015, appears to be the perfect time frame for the Final 7 Years. But the vast majority of you reading this still have two HUGE problems with this time frame, which we entered on Oct. 29, 2008. #1, there has been no rapture yet and #2, there has been no confirming of a peace treaty with Israel by the Antichrist yet.
Several times I have preached a sermon entitled, 17 Scriptural Reasons for a Pre-Tribulation Rapture. I have always believed the Rapture would precede the 7-year Tribulation. You may have noticed that in this letter I have called this 7-year period of Oct. 29, 2008 thru Feast of Atonement, Sept. 23, 2015, the Final 7 Years. After reading Sherry Vances article of last month and similar articles over the years, I have to admit that even though they probably do overlap, the Tribulation, the 70th Week of Daniel, and the Time of Jacobs Trouble may not be the EXACT same time periods.
I have always believed and been taught in Bible School that the Tribulation would be 7 years, and the Great Tribulation would comprise the last 3 and one-half years of the 7-year Tribulation. I still believe the Book of Revelation teaches a 3 and one-half year Great Tribulation and that the 70th week of Daniel is 2520 days, or 7 Jewish years, long. The 2300 days mentioned in the book of Daniel has always been a mystery for Bible prophecy scholars. This 2300 days could very well be the shortened Tribulation period.
For those of us who believe in a Pre-Tribulation Rapture, this 2300-day theory would still give us several more months and several more options for the Rapture, if indeed the Great Tribulation and the 70th Week of Daniel concludes in the fall of 2015.
This takes us to the other obstacle for us already entering the Final 7 Years, which is the confirming of a 7-year peace treaty with Israel by the Antichrist. I was taught in Bible School, and have always believed this would be the event that actually began the 7-year Tribulation. The signing, or confirming, would be Day 1 of the 70th Week of Daniel. It is still my contention that Daniel 9:27 takes place (or should I say already took place) on Day 1 of the 70th Week of Daniel.
I believe there are 3 things that we need for Day 1 of the 70th Week of Daniel to take place. I used to believe the Rapture was the 4th piece of the puzzle. I no longer believe that because I believe we have entered the 70th Week of Daniel, as of Oct. 29, 2008, and no Rapture has taken place. I believe that will take place at the time of the Sudden Destruction, sometime in the next 7 months. The 3 things are 1. A potential Antichrist on the scene. 2. We need to be at the beginning of a 7-year Sabbatical cycle. 3. We need a confirming of the covenant with many by the potential Antichrist.
1. Because of the tremendous amount of letters about Barack Hussein Obama on Five Doves in the past few months, I will spare you in this letter all of the many reasons why I now believe this man will come to fulfill his role as the Antichrist in the very near future. Perhaps in another letter I will highlight a few of the reasons. More and more Christians every day are jumping on the bandwagon that this man, who is probably a Muslim, will fulfill his role as the Antichrist. Count me among them. So many Christians have this pre-conceived idea about the Antichrist, that they are totally closed to the idea that Obama could be the Antichrist.
I jumped off the Antichrist-must-come-from-Europe bandwagon a long time ago. Perry Stone, at a prophecy conference that I attended, was the first that I knew of who presented a case for the Antichrist coming from the other half of the Old Roman Empire, which comprises much of the Muslim Kingdom. It is difficult to imagine someone from Europe, with very little nuclear power, or someone from Jordan or Syria, actually controlling the whole world. However, a President of the United States, the worlds only superpower, with its vast nuclear power, who shows his true Muslim colors at the start of the 3 and one-half year Great Tribulation, that is a different story. Who is more likely to cut off your head if you do not take the Mark of the Beast, a European leader like Prince Charles, or a great leader in the Muslim world??? So, I believe we definitely have a potential Antichrist on the world scene in Obama.
2. October 29, 2009, seemed to be a perfect fit to be the first day of the 70th week of Daniel. As more and more evidence begin piling up for Obama being the Antichrist and more and more evidence pointed toward the Final Seven Years comprising the time period of Oct. 29, 2008?Sept. 23, 2015 (Feast of Atonement), I became increasingly puzzzled during the last several weeks as to how Obama could sign or confirm a 7-year peace treaty with Israel on Oct. 29, 2008, if he was not even going to be in power until January, 2009. I could not reconcile this dilemma.
I waited anxiously with all of you as we went through the Fall Feast Days of 2008, anticipating the Rapture. Like Ted Porter, Jerry Grenough, and others on Five Doves, after the Feast Days, I was still anticipating something REALLY BIG to happen on Oct 29, 2008!! Would it be the Rapture? Would it be the crash of the stock market? Would it be the unleashing of nuclear weapons? Would it be the signing of a Middle East peace treaty, that possibly Obama would confirm, or strengthen, after he was sworn in as President in January of 2009? Something just had to happen on this day, I reasoned. It was just such a perfect fit.
3. In 35 years of studying Bible Prophecy, I had never seen this much evidence pointing to one particular day to start the Final Seven Years. I went to bed on Oct. 29, 2008, thinking we could be off one day because of Jewish inclusive reckoning, or because of moon sightings in 2015. Still perplexed the next day, as I anxiously scanned the newspaper for some secret signing of a Middle East peace agreement, I went to Five Doves looking for insight on the previous days events, which again was Oct. 29, 2008. I began scanning the titles of the letters that appeared in Five Doves on Oct. 30. When I read the title of Lewis Bracketts letter entitled, Obamas Covenant with Many, it hit me like a bolt of lightning. My spirit was electrified, as I heard the words come to me out of nowhere, IT HAS HAPPENED!!!
The first opportunity I had I got out my Strongs Concordance and did a word study on Daniel 9:27, which says, And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week What we, as Bible students have always been taught, is the Antichrist will sign, or strengthen, a 7-year peace treaty with Israel and several other countries. This is another of our pre-conceived ideas, that I now believe has proven to be false. It is a theory that has been derived from an overall study of Bible prophecy. There is certainly no Scripture that says the Antichrist will sign, or confirm, a 7-year peace treaty with Israel and several other nations.
When Jesus came the first time, very, very few recognized Jesus as the Messiah. It was because of their pre-conceived ideas, from misinterpreting Scriptures, that they got it wrong. Do not let your pre-conceived ideas about the Antichrist and a 7-year peace treaty with Israel, and a Rapture before the Final 7 Years begins, keep you from seeing what has just taken place. ANTICHRIST HAS CONFIRMED THE COVENANT AND THE FINAL 7 YEARS, OR THE 70TH WEEK OF DANIEL HAS BEGUN!!! We can know it has begun because of what has taken place on Oct. 29, 2008!!!
Here is what my word study in the Hebrew has revealed to me. Of all the words in that verse, the word covenant was the hardest to gain insight on. There was nothing about a peace agreement, nothing about a treaty. In fact, in the Hebrew, there was nothing even anything remotely suggesting that the covenant was any type of peace agreement, or a treaty of any kind. Study it for yourself. Covenant means to come together, to be of one mind, and promises. The Hebrew for week does mean seven years. There is nothing in the Hebrew to suggest the word many would involve a peace treaty with a handful of Middle East countries, as we have been let to believe. Instead, the Hebrew word many, indicates an abundant number, ten thousands, or millions, a HUGE number, or a multitude. The Hebrew meaning of confirm would indicate to strengthen, to put more strength to, to prevail, to exceed, to be great, to be mighty.
I do believe the he in Daniel 9:27, does represent the Antichrist, who comes in Daniel 7:25 to CHANGE TIMES AND LAWS. Based on the word study on Daniel 9:27, which says, And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week, here is what I believed happened on October 29, 2008:
Barack Hussein Obama put himself on nationwide TV, on 7 major TV networks, and in front of over 33 million people, confirmed, or strengthened, or re-affirmed, or summarized his platform, his promises, to be of one mind and to all come together, or his COVENANT with the people. He strengthened his covenant (his promises). The intention of his covenant, or his promises, was not only TO STRENGTHEN, but also to PREVAIL on Election Day, to EXCEED during his presidency, TO BE GREAT, and TO BE MIGHTY. The title of his message was, A Closing Argument to the Everyman. I would say that Everyman would sure include a whole lot of people. Besides the 33 million that watched his speech on Oct. 29 on TV, millions more saw it later on news broadcasts and on the Internet. Certainly, the many involved an abundant number, a huge number, a multitude, yes, millions upon millions of people, not just a handful of countries that we have come to expect the many to represent.
During this speech, Obama said he was going to change the country and CHANGE THE WORLD!!! His main platform has been to PREPARE FOR CHANGE. Daniel 7:25 says the Antichrist is coming to CHANGE times and laws. The confirming of the covenant with many for ONE WEEK, simply was put in Scripture so we could identify the 70TH WEEK of Daniel. In other words, God is allowing us to identify the Antichrist and the first day of the 70th WEEK of Daniel at the same time.
I BELIEVE GOD IS SAYING THAT WHEN YOU
SEE A PRIME CANDIDATE FOR THE ANTICHRIST CONFIRMING A COVENANT (OR PROMISES) IN
FRONT OF MANY (MILLIONS AND MILLIONS) ON THE VERY SAME DAY THAT CALCULATES OUT
TO BE THE VERY FIRST DAY OF THE FINAL 7 YEARS, KNOW THAT YOU HAVE ENTERED THE
70TH WEEK OF DANIEL.
WHEN WE SEE AN OUTSTANDING CANDIDATE TO BE THE ANTICHRIST STRENGTEN OR CONFIRM HIS COVENANT OR PROMISES IN FRONT OF MILLIONS AND MILLIONS OF PEOPLE ON THE EXACT DAY THAT EVERYTHING POINTED TO BE THE FIRST DAY OF THE 70TH WEEK OF DANIEL, WHAT ARE WE SUPPOSED TO THINK????
it was all just coincidence??? A word study of Daniel 9:27 in the Hebrew tells
us that WHAT TOOK PLACE WITH
OBAMA ON 0CT. 29, 2008, WAS, INDEED THE FULFILLMENT OF DANIEL 9:27.

"Final Nail in Coffin--Amazing Astronomical Discovery confirms 10/29/08!!!"
THE TWO REVEALINGS OF THE ANTICHRIST--PART D
Below is a post that I wrote in late 2009, with a slight revision, where I have included Kevin Heckle's amazing post, where he has made an amazing astronomical discovery, which totally confirms Oct. 29, 2008, as the date the Antichrist, Barack Hussein Obama, was revealed, to discerning Christians, and the date that started the Final 7 Years.
Kevin Heckle began his search, with NO pre-set agenda. He did not believe in Oct. 29, 2008, when he began his search. He said that his amazing discovery ASTOUNDED him. The omnipotent, sovereign Lord of this universe has chosen to reveal to end-times watchers, NOT ONLY THE DAY, BUT THE HOUR AND THE EXACT MINUTE, OF THE RISING OF THE BEAST OF THE SEA, AND THE DAY AND HOUR, OF THE START OF THE FINAL 7 YEARS!!! FINAL NAIL IN THE COFFIN, INDEED!!!
By the Lord giving us this undeniable, and conclusive proof, of Oct. 29, 2008, we can also be certain that April 11, 2012, is the mid-point date, which is the start of the 1260-day Great Tribulation. It also means that we can be certain that the day that everything is pointing towards for the literal Return of Christ to this earth at the Battle of Armageddon is, indeed, Feast of Atonement, Sept. 23, 2015. For more conclusive and amazing evidence of these three God-ordained dates, visit my website at:
WOW!!! FINAL NAIL IN THE COFFIN!!! KEVIN HECKLE'S AMAZING ASTRONOMICAL DISCOVERY TOTALLY CONFIRMS OCT. 29, 2008!!!
Kevin Heckle's post on 5 Doves (www.fivedoves.com), on Dec. 12, 2009, was awesome, as it gave even greater compelling and conclusive evidence and credibility, using astronomical signs, that Obama is the Antichrist. If any of you have any doubt about the overwhelming and, in my opinion, irrefutable evidence, concerning Oct. 29, 2008, being the first day of the 70th Week of Daniel, as the Lord revealed to me on Oct. 30, 2008, you MUST READ Kevin Heckle's Part 2, the very last article on Five Doves on Dec. 14, 2009, which I have included below.
It is the most awe-inspiring post that I have read in a long time. Any open-minded watcher NOW MUST BE CONFRONTED WITH ONE MORE OVERWHELMING, IRREFUTABLE, AND COMPELLING TRUTH THAT THE FINAL 7 YEARS BEGAN ON OCT. 29, 2008!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The Lord told us there would be signs in the Heavens of His Return. Kevin has now discovered more astronomical proof of the EXTREME IMPORTANCE OF OCT. 29, 2008! Our Lord is NOT returning in 2018, or 2019, or in any later year. We now have one more irrefutable piece of evidence that our Lord is returning on Feast of Atonement, the prophetic Feast Day that He is supposed to return on, Sept. 23, 2015, EXACTLY 2520 DAYS, OR SEVEN JEWISH YEARS, FROM OCT. 29, 2008!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The signs pointing to this one day in history are totally amazing!!!
This SHOULD put the final nail in the coffin, people. However, I suspect this will not be the case for most watchers. Hopefully, some more people will be finally persuaded of THIS TRUTH, that the Lord is trying to make so very, very obvious to us. Again, I say that the evidence is so compelling, persuasive, overwhelming, astounding, and irrefutable, that there is NO other reasonable conclusion that can be drawn.
It is time to let go of what we have been taught all these years, about the Rapture before the Final 7 Years (the Rapture will still be simultaneous with the Sudden Destruction, which will REALLY kick into high gear the Judgments of the Book of Revelation). It is time to let go of the extremely popular theory that there HAS to be a 7-year peace covenant with the Antichrist and Israel before the Final 7 Years can start. I can say unto you emphatically THERE WILL BE NO 7-YEAR PEACE TREATY OF ANY TYPE, as there are now a little more than 4 more years left before Jesus returns to set up His Millennial Kingdom. The Lord has shown me, and supernaturally confirmed to me seven times, that the CONFIRMING OF THE COVENANT OF DANIEL 9:27 TOOK PLACE ON OCT. 29, 2008!!!
It is time to let go of pre-conceived ideas that Obama cannot be the Antichrist because he is not from Europe, or Assyria, or not Jewish, or not smart enough, or not popular enough, or not a military man, or not homosexual, or not a prince (the supposed list goes on and on and on). Obama is of mysterious and unknown roots, and is in power in the world's only superpower, and in charge of the largest supply of nuclear weapons, that mankind has ever known. The ONLY one who can control the whole world, like the Antichrist will, is the one who is in charge of the most nuclear weapons. This fact alone rules out all of the other candidates. None of us knows for certain his complete ancestory. Without any doubt in my mind, or hesitation in my spirit, because the Lord has undoubtedly shown me this truth, I can boldly proclaim to all of you, that BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA, IS, OR WILL BE, NO LATER THAN APR. 11, 2012, THE START OF THE 3 AND ONE-HALF-YEAR GREAT TRIBULATION, THE ANTICHRIST.
Sadly to say, pre-conceived ideas, and well-intentioned, but incorrect, teachings will STILL cause many Christians, and even watchers, to dig their heels in even deeper, because of what they consider to be Biblical truth. In reality, it is only their interpretation of the Scriptures that are wrong. Obviously, the Word is not wrong. After the Lord revealed to me the reality of what took place on Oct. 29, 2008, I immediately had to do a thorough word-by-word Hebrew study of Daniel 9:27.
Many, many people have written to me, or posted on 5 Doves, to tell me how wrong I am, for various reasons. My Hebrew word study of this extremely important verse revealed that there IS NOT EVEN A HINT THAT THIS VERSE IS TALKING ABOUT A PEACE TREATY WITH ISRAEL AND MANY OTHER COUNTRIES. Yet that is what is widely taught, and almost universally accepted by Bible Prophecy students. I expect to receive some more negative reactions from this email. The Lord has conditioned me to accept and expect this. That is why He gave me SEVEN supernatural confirmations, after revealing this to me, so that nobody else could EVER persuade me, that what the Lord has shown to me, is not the truth. I am so convinced of what He showed me, that I retired several years early from a very good job with the U.S. Postal Service to become a FULL-TIME watchman, in what very short time we have left.
The scribes, Pharisees, and religious leaders in the time of Jesus, were so absolutely certain that Jesus could not be their long-awaited Messiah. After all, they had thoroughly studied all of the Scriptures in the Old Testament, and had thoroughly convinced themselves that Jesus Christ could not possibly be the Promised One. How very, very sad that they missed the most spectacular event, the 1st Coming of Christ, in the history of mankind! All because of their pre-conceived ideas and what had been passed down to them through the ages through other religious teachers. Even right to today, the vast majority of Jews still cannot see Jesus as their Messiah. They are TOTALLY BLINDED TO THE TRUTH, as were the religious leaders during the 1st Coming of Christ. They were, and are, totally blinded to the truth, due to pre-conceived ideas and misinterpreting Scriptures.
They never saw Jesus commit any sin. His teachings were totally Scriptural, but to the religious leaders, they were unconventional. He committed many awesome miracles in their midst. He fulfilled the first four Jewish Feast Days by being crucified on Feast of Passover, buried on Feast of Unleavened Bread, rose again on Feast of Firstfruits, and sent His Holy Spirit on Feast of Pentecost. God did everything He could to show them that Jesus was their long-awaited Messiah. Yet they were TOTALLY BLINDED TO THE TRUTH. They were so totally blinded that they stuck to their pre-conceived ideas, and seemingly right teachings, and murdered the Son of the living God, our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
A few people, in the time of Jesus, could see in the prophecies of the Old Testament and in Biblical astronomy, that it was, indeed, the time for the coming of the Messiah. THEY WERE CALLED WISE MEN. That is the way it is today, with very few having much prophetic discernment. Many people, including watchers, take comfort in the knowledge that most, if not all, the Bible Prophecy "experts", do not believe that the Final 7 Years have started. Most are still looking for that ever-elusive 7-Year Peace Treaty, that is NEVER going to materialize. Most believe the the Rapture will occur JUST BEFORE the signing of this ever-popular peace treaty with Israel and many other countries. Most believe that Obama is NOT the Antichrist, for various reasons.
HOW VERY, VERY, VERY SAD! Our Lord is doing everything in His power to reveal to us the truth about the identity of the Antichrist. Look at all the awesome and compelling posts about 666 and other Bible gematria, confirming to us that Obama is the Antichrist. John Tng, Kevin Heckle, Bob Ware, and Ted Porter have given us irrefutable proof, numerous times, numerically that Obama is the Antichrist, in their posts on Five Doves. To read some of these posts, just go to www.fivedoves.com and scroll to the bottom of the cover page, and click on their posts. You will be totally amazed, at the Biblical proofs that the Lord has given to us, identifying Barack Hussein Obama as the Antichrist.
HOW VERY, VERY, VERY SAD! Our Lord is doing everything in His power to reveal to us the the timing of the 70th Week of Daniel. And yet most are STILL missing it, just like they did during the 1st Coming of Christ. Very few were able to discern what was actually taking place. THE END-TIMES ARE NOT NEAR, THEY ARE HERE NOW!!!!!!! Those things that the majority of you believed in, that I just wrote about above, I too believed, until almost three years ago. So, I can readily identify with where you are at, in your Biblical perspective of these last days. BUT WE WERE WRONG!!! The Scriptures are NOT wrong, not a chance in the world. It is only our interpretation of the Scriptures that has NOW BEEN PROVEN TO BE WRONG.
Please do not be like the religious leaders during the 1st Coming of Christ and miss out on living in the most exciting, awe-inspiring, full of anticipation, days that mankind has ever known. Let's all let God fulfill these end-times Scriptures the way He intended to. Let's let God be God. Many of you have done just that, and have let go of your pre-conceived ideas and incorrect teachings. Many on my mailing list, and readers of 5 Doves, NOW believe that the end of the Final 7 Years will be in the Fall of 2015. I am VERY pleased that this list includes some of the more astute and excellent Bible Prophecy students on the Five Doves site, including Marilyn Agee, Ted Porter, B.G. Ellis, and Bill Griese, among others. All four of these accomplished writers have either written books, or have long, detailed websites, giving us further great insight on this topic. Ted Porter's lastest series on Five Doves, which show us the Final 7 years being EXACTLY the same as the Lord has shown me, is a must-read for all serious Bible Prophecy students.
Progressive revelation is NOW taking place (an increasing knowledge of Biblical end-times Prophecy, which will continue to accelerate, as Daniel predicted, as the world rapidly proceeds through these Final 7 Years in which we NOW find ourselves) . Much of it is proving to be unconventional, to what we have been taught. The overwhelming, extremely compelling, and irrefutable evidence of what is NOW taking place TRUMPS OUR PRE-CONCEIVED IDEAS AND TEACHINGS. The Rapture will SOON be upon us, and all of the peace, joy, excitement, and anticipation and urgency, leading up to that awesome day, will be missed by so very many Christians because of pre-conceived ideas and misinterpretation of the Scriptures.
Below is the last part only, of Kevin Heckle's excellent Five Doves post, on Dec. 14, 2009, giving us ONE MORE CONFIRMATION OF OCT. 29, 2008, BEING THE FIRST DAY OF THE FINAL 7 YEARS. It is about the book of Revelation and Biblical astronomy, which is NOT astrology. I am not educated enough to fully understand, as you may not be, everything that is presented in this post. However, the conclusion, is what is fascinating. The conclusions that one should easily reach are, that we now have EVEN MORE CONCLUSIVE AND VERY COMPELLING AND IRREFUTABLE EVIDENCE OF OBAMA BEING THE ANTICHRIST AND THE FINAL 7 YEARS STARTING ON OCT. 29, 2008!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Please read the following carefully and prayerfully. The astronomical signs are from Revelation, Chapter 12, which is where the Beast of the Sea (the Antichrist), rises to power:
Kevin Heckle writes:
Both representations of Satan, Draco
and Serpens stalk Virgo, waiting to DEVOUR her

below the sea (equator), also intersects with the tip of the tail of Hydra
Hy58 (beast rising from the sea). It was a surprise to me that the line
intersected the tip of the tail of Hydra. The tip of the
tail would represent the BEGINNING of the BEAST RISING FROM the SEA!!!! However,
the more spectacular intersect is with the moons orbit on this date and
time. The line from Dracos mouth, through Serpens
mouth touching the tip of Hydras tail, crosses the moons orbit EXACTLY
where the NEW MOON was (14h 58min 25 sec RA and -22* 7.7 declination) on the same
date and time the sun had fully clothed Virgo!!!! I checked to see if
the same alignment occurred frequently. I manually checked from 1988
through 2028 and the only occurrence of this alignment intersecting with the
Draco-Serpens-Hydra line was the date and time:
10/30/2008 00:00:00 UTC which is October 29, 2008 at 8:00 PM EST!!!!
Make your own conclusions as to the timing of BHOs covenant with many.
I believe the alignment is a rare event. There are a few occasions where
moon is in the general vicinity during that time-frame of 1988-2028.
However, I dont believe there is an occurrence during that time in which the
moon is both below the suns ecliptic (thus below her left foot) AND a right
ascension greater than 14 hours 43 minutes of Right Ascension, which is the RA
of the star Mu Virginis, her right foot. To fulfill the Biblical description moon below her feet the
moon would also have to be below the suns Ecliptic as Virgo is parallel with
this line and the sun passing almost directly over her left heel
Consider this coincidence: a line passing from Dracos mouth, through Serpens mouth (Satan cast down) to the tip of Hydras tail (the beast rising from the sea) intersects with a new moon at EXACTLY 8:00 PM October 29th, 2008, while Barack Obama is making his promises to the world; from the other end of Draco, a line beginning at the tip of his tail, passing through the feet of the bear, past the mouth of the lion, through the head of Hydra (beast rising from the sea), crosses the suns Ecliptic at 9 hours RA 17* declination, which is EXACTLY the moment of Barack Obamas claim of birth in Hawaii, August 4, 1961 at 7:24 PM. Dracos head is connected to Hydras tail and Hydras head is connected Dracos tail through EXACTLY two of the most significant dates in Barack Hussein Obamas life!!!!! His days are written in the stars timing EXACTLY as the Bible describes it, intertwined with Satans representations of the dragon (Draco), the serpent (Serpens) and the beast rising from the sea (Hydra).

"Astronomical Discovery in Revelation: PART II"
Astronomical Discovery in Revelation: PART II
When I wrote the article Astronomical Discovery in Revelation
I believed there was more to be gleaned from the verses in Revelation regarding Ecliptic time and the constellations. I was astonished to find a date that has been discussed here on this site on numerous occasions. The first verse of Revelation 12 describes a woman clothed with the sun and the moon under her feet. As I said in the first article, the Ecliptic or the suns path through the heavens over the period of a year lies parallel with the constellation Virgo just below her body. I occurred to me that clothed with the sun could refer to the sun having traveled the entire length of her body clothing her. The direction the sun appears to travel along the Ecliptic would be from her head to her feet over the time period it takes to travel that distance. This would place the sun near her feet if she were fully clothed. The very next words are and the moon under her feet. I wondered if there were a time during the year that both the sun and the moon were near or under her feet. The Ecliptic passes within a degree of Virgos heel, which are the binary stars Lambda Virginis (14h 19m 6 sec RA -13* 22m 16sec declination). I wondered if there was a day during the year in which the sun was nearly to Lambda Virginis (her heel) and the moon directly under her feet. There is a day in which the sun (14h 18m 21 sec RA 13* 49.7declination) is within 45 seconds of Right Ascension nearly on top of Virgos left heel star (clothed by the sun)!!!! Now I wondered if the moon was under her feet at the same time. On this date and time (with the sun there), the moon is at 14h 58min 25 sec RA and -22* 7.7 declination although dark as it is a new moon. Of the FEET (stars) of Virgo, Mu Virginis (14h 43min 3sec -5.39) has the farthest Right Ascension, which is the lowest foot (although higher in the sky) as Virgo depicts a woman in the prone position. It would be her right foot. The moon would have to be both lower in declination than the suns ecliptic and higher Right Ascension value to match the verses words moon under her feet. The moon following a path 9 degrees lower than that of the sun (here), making it significantly lower than Virgos feet in declination is also 15 minutes under (past) her foot in Right Ascension!!!! This is I thought would be a once a year occurrence. I would find out it would be much rarer than that.
Before I reveal the date and time, there is a confirming intersect with the moons ecliptic. Revelation 12:7 speaks of the war in heaven. Verse 8 states that the dragon and his angels place in heaven could not be found anymore in heaven. Revelation 12:9 states that the great dragon, which I previously identified as the constellation DRACO, was cast out and re-identified as the SERPENT, the Devil and Satan. He is cast from the heavens to the earth. Just below the feet of Virgo, also with its head pointed toward her is the constellation SERPENS, the serpent which is also ready to devour her man-child. The constellation Serpens head is above the equator and its body below, which is representative of the sea, just as Hydra, the beast rising from the sea in Revelation 13. The dual identification of Draco (high in the sky) and Serpens (low in the sky) as representing Satan cast down from the heavens to the earth and the sea is further confirmed by Revelation 12:12
Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.
Both representations of Satan, Draco and Serpens stalk Virgo, waiting to DEVOUR her man-child. A LINE cast down from Dracos mouth-devourer (star Nu Draconis) through the Serpens mouth-devourer (star Gamma Serpentis) extending to below the sea (equator), also intersects with the tip of the tail of Hydra Hy58 (beast rising from the sea). It was a surprise to me that the line intersected the tip of the tail of Hydra. The tip of the tail would represent the BEGINNING of the BEAST RISING FROM the SEA!!!! However, the more spectacular intersect is with the moons orbit on this date and time. The line from Dracos mouth, through Serpens mouth touching the tip of Hydras tail, crosses the moons orbit EXACTLY where the NEW MOON was (14h 58min 25 sec RA and -22* 7.7 declination) on the same date and time the sun had fully clothed Virgo!!!! I checked to see if the same alignment occurred frequently. I manually checked from 1988 through 2028 and the only occurrence of this alignment intersecting with the Draco-Serpens-Hydra line was the date and time: 10/30/2008 00:00:00 UTC which is October 29, 2008 at 8:00 PM EST!!!! Make your own conclusions as to the timing of BHOs covenant with many. I believe the alignment is a rare event.

The Timing of the First and Second Coming of our
Lord Jesus Christ is clearly given in the Book of Daniel (chapter: 9 verses: 25
and 26) The Prophet Daniel wrote this prophecy in the Babylonian captivity when
the Archangel Gabriel suddenly appeared before him and gave him the information
required to calculate the year of the coming of the Messiah. This prophecy
serves as the key to understanding the Timing of Christ's Return!
Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times. (Daniel 9 verse: 25)
We are given the initial point - the end point and the time interval. As we can see the initial point is the decree / commandment to rebuild Jerusalem, the end point is the coming of the Messiah and the time interval between the initial point and the end point is seven weeks and threescore and two weeks
Before we go on, Let us see the equivalent of seven weeks and threescore and two weeks"
We know that in this context one day is considered to be a year. As a result of this, one week is seven years, (not seven days). What we also have to know is that a score is equal to 20.
Knowing all this, we can say that:
Seven weeks = Seven sevens = 7*7= 49 years
Threescore and two weeks = 20+20+20 = 60 + 2 = Sixty-two sevens = 62*7= 434 years
And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined. (Daniel 9 verse: 26)
In this verse, we can read that after threescore and two weeks (434 years) the Messiah will be cut off. This has been fulfilled! This verse refers to the First Coming of Jesus! After the decree issued by King Artaxerxes to rebuild and restore Jerusalem, 434 years passed and the Messiah (Jesus Christ) was cut off (crucified). Approximately 40 years after Jesus Christ's Crucifixion, "The people of the prince / ruler that will come" (the Romans) destroyed Jerusalem and the Second Temple.
The portion of Daniel 9:25 relating to the sixty-two weeks (434 years) has been fulfilled, but the portion of Daniel 9:25 that relates to the seven weeks (49 years) STILL REMAINS TO BE FULFILLED!
Now we have to ask the question. How about the "seven weeks" (49 years) mentioned above?
When will it be fulfilled? The answer is: IT REFERS TO THE SECOND COMING OF JESUS!
Please note that Sir Isaac Newton also came to realize that the two time intervals (49 and 434) should not be added (there is no linguistic basis to do so), but the two numbers separately speak of both the first and second coming both being counted from the going forth of the commandment to restore and rebuild Jerusalem.
Newton was a devout believer in Christ and Bible scholar, fluent in ancient languages, and who translated directly from the Hebrew and Greek. He was unusually drawn to the prophet Daniel, which he began studying at the age of 12 and continued until he died at the age of 85. In fact, The Columbia History of the World, a secular history book, remarks, "At the end of his days he spent more time studying and writing about the prophecies in the Book of Daniel than he did in charting the heavens." Apparently, God Himself put in Newton's heart this burning desire to study Daniel, then gave him the key to the timing of Christ's return.
Now we know that the time interval of the Second Coming of Jesus is "seven weeks" that is 49 years.
The initial point and the end point are the same as the ones I mentioned above.
The initial point is the decree/commandment to rebuild Jerusalem and the end point is certainly the coming (Second Coming) of the Messiah.
We know Jesus came as a suffering lamb at his first coming to redeem mankind and He will come as a conquering king at his second coming to reign with his saints.
Can we know when Jesus comes back as a conquering king? With the help of historical data, WE CAN!
We know that after the destruction of Jerusalem and the Second Temple (70 AD), the Jews were forced into exile and scattered, but the Bible says that they will be gathered together one day, and it was fulfilled!
I will bring my people Israel back after thousands of years of Jewish dispersal.
(Isaiah 43 verse: 5-6) - (Jeremiah 30 verse: 3) - (Ezekiel 37 verse: 10-14) - (Amos 9 verse: 14-15) - (Zechariah 8 verse: 7-8)
Who hath heard such a thing? Who hath seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? Or shall a nation be born at once? (Isaiah 66 verse: 8)
The State of Israel was restored on 14 May 1948 in ONE DAY! As a matter of fact, the rebirth of Israel had been a preposterous thought. No one had ever thought this would come to pass but as we can see
it DID! With the restoration of Israel a great number of Bible Prophecies were fulfilled that day.
The most striking thing is that in the following two years (1949-1950) a tetrad sequence occurred in the sky above Jerusalem. A tetrad is four consecutive total lunar eclipses, also known as blood-red moons All the four blood red moons occurred on Jewish holidays. (signs in the sky)
(You didnt have any astronomical tetrads in the 1800s, the 1700s, the 1600s and the 1500s. The next previous time this happened was in 1493/1494 just after the Jews were kicked out of Spain in 1492.
Those blood-red moons occured on Jewish holidays as well.)
Later, on 7 June 1967 The Jews finally recaptured Jerusalem and the Temple Mount from the Palestinians in the famous Six-Day-War and THE COMMANDMENT TO RESTORE AND TO REBUILD JERUSALEM WAS ANNOUNCED! Furthermore, in this and the following year (1967-1968) another tetrad sequence occurred in the sky above Jerusalem, all on Jewish holidays. (signs in the sky)
AND NOW THE MOST EXCITING AND INTERESTING THING IS COMING!
THE NEXT LUNAR TETRADS (BLOOD-RED MOONS) WILL OCCUR IN THE YEAR 2014-2015 ALL ON JEWISH HOLIDAYS AGAIN. IF WE ADD 49 YEARS (17640 DAYS) TO THE DAY 7 JUNE 1967 WHEN THE DECREE WAS ISSUED TO REBUILD JERUSALEM WE GET TO 23 SEPTEMBER 2015 (YOM KIPPUR -
DAY OF ATONEMENT) - THE HOLIEST FEAST OF THE YEAR (ALSO KNOWN AS "DAY OF JUDGEMENT") WHICH IS THE DAY JESUS RETURNS TO EARTH AS FORETOLD IN THE BIBLE!
(Please note that a prophetic year is made up of 360 days in this context!)
What we should also bear in mind is that in the second half of this century tetrads occur a couple of times but none of them will fall on God's holidays. None of them!
Every occurrence of tetrad eclipses mentioned above deal with major events in recent Jewish history. The most significant ones are stated below:
Significant events confirmed by tetrads:
Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteh forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh
So likewise when you shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors
Verily I say unto you, this Generation shall not pass till all these things be fulfilled.
Earth and Heaven shall pass away but my words shall never pass away. (Matthew 24 verse: 32:33:34)
Bible scholars agree upon the fact that the figs represent the inhabitants of Israel and the fig tree represents the State of Israel. According to Jesus the Generation - Final Generation that sees the State of Israel come back to life will be present at his second coming! Time is running out! Are you ready to meet the Lord?
JESUS CHRIST IS COMING BACK TO EARTH FOR HIS BRIDE IN 2018!
Now that we know the day our Lord returns to Earth, Let us see more details about the end-times we are now living in. We can know what to face in the near future!
And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week; and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate." (Daniel 9 verse: 27)
The Tribulation period known as the Hours of Temptation / Hours of Trial / Jacob's trouble (Jeremiah 30) is the Final Seven Years of Human History.
According to Daniel it is triggered by the Antichrist First Beast of Revelation who confirms a covenant with many for exactly 7 years.
(Even though Daniel does not mention exactly who is meant by "he" in chapter 9:27, We can know it is the Antichrist "Abomination of Desolation" by reading Matthew 24:15 in which Jesus makes this fact clear.
"So when you see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet (9:27), standing in the holy place (let the reader understand)..." (Matthew 24 verse: 15)
If we know the last day of the Tribulation which is 23 September 2015, all we have to do is to backtrack exactly 7 years (2520 days / 84 months) to get to the first day of the Tribulation which brings us to 29 October 2008!
TO PUT IT CLEARLY THE FINAL 7-YEARS RUNS FROM 29 OCTOBER 2008 TO 23 SEPTEMBER 2015!
We have to ask the question! Did the Antichrist confirm a covenant with many on that very day?
The answer is: HE DID!
Barack Hussein Obama (The President of The United States) delivered a 30-minute-long infomercial.
He put himself on nationwide TV, on 7 major TV networks, and in front of over 33 million people, confirmed, or strengthened, or re-affirmed, or summarized, his platform, his promises, to be of one mind, and to all come together, or his COVENANT with the people. He strengthened his covenant (his promises). The intention of his covenant, or his promises, was not only TO STRENGTHEN, but also to PREVAIL on Election Day, to EXCEED during his presidency, TO BE GREAT, and TO BE MIGHTY. The title of his message was, A Closing Argument to the Everyman. I would say that "Everyman" would sure include a whole lot of people. Besides the 33 million that watched his speech live on Oct. 29, 2008, on TV, millions more saw it later on news telecasts and on the Internet. Certainly, the many involved an abundant number, a huge number, a multitude, yes, millions upon millions of people, not just a handful of countries/especially middle-east countires that we have come to expect the many to represent.
During this speech, Obama said he was going to CHANGE THE COUNTRY and CHANGE THE WORLD!!! His main platform has been to PREPARE FOR CHANGE. Daniel 7:25 says the Antichrist is coming to CHANGE times and laws. The confirming of the covenant with many for ONE WEEK, simply was put in Scripture so we could identify the 70TH WEEK of Daniel. In other words, God is allowing us to identify the Antichrist and the first day of the 70th WEEK of Daniel at the same time. I BELIEVE GOD IS SAYING THAT WHEN YOU SEE A PRIME CANDIDATE FOR THE ANTICHRIST CONFIRMING A COVENANT (OR PROMISES) IN FRONT OF MANY (MILLIONS AND MILLIONS) ON THE VERY SAME DAY THAT CALCULATES OUT TO BE THE VERY FIRST DAY OF THE FINAL 7 YEARS, KNOW THAT YOU HAVE ENTERED THE 70TH WEEK OF DANIEL.
WHEN WE SEE AN OUTSTANDING CANDIDATE TO BE THE ANTICHRIST STRENGTHEN, OR CONFIRM, HIS COVENANT OR PROMISES IN FRONT OF MILLIONS AND MILLIONS OF PEOPLE ON THE EXACT DAY THAT EVERYTHING POINTS TOWARDS, TO BE THE FIRST DAY OF THE 70TH WEEK OF DANIEL, WHAT ARE WE SUPPOSED TO THINK???? That it was all just coincidence??? A word study of Daniel 9:27 in the Hebrew, tells us that WHAT TOOK PLACE WITH OBAMA ON 0CT. 29, 2008, WAS, INDEED THE FULFILLMENT OF DANIEL 9:27.
We also had 3 striking warnings from the Lord. All the 3 warnings took place on notable days.
Why was his infomercial
exactly 30-minute long?
And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour. (Revelation 8 verse:1)
The opening of the seventh seal started the Tribulation. While there was a 30-minute-long infomercial delivered by the Antichrist on the Earth, there was a 30-minute-long silence in heaven.
Never before in the worlds history has anyone given a 30-minute info-commercial confirming his campaign promises with many and that if he is elected he would change the world. Nothing happens by chance!
Please note that the "Seventh Seal of Revelation" is the first seal which was opened.
It is not in the same chapter as the other six. No wonder! It is by prophetic design so to say. Even the seal judgments as well as the trumpet judgments run concurrently and "randomly" rather than one after the other. The Book of Revelation is not in chronological order!
Obama, The Renegade!
On 11 November 2008, the secret service gave Obama the codename of the "Renegade"
The dictionary definition of Renegade:
a "lawless" one
a "deserter" from a faith (apostasy)
a "deserter" from an allegiance
2nd Thessalonians 2:3 declares that the Antichrist will be the leader of the "apostasy" or "rebellion" and will be known as the "lawless one".

The Tribulation is divided into two equal parts each lasting for 3.5 years (42 months / 1260 days)
The first part runs from 29 October 2008 to 11 April 2012 and this part is known as the Beginning of Sorrows.
ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in diverse places. All these are the beginning of sorrows (Matthew 24)
It is just needless to say how many major earthquakes, tropical storms, floods, famines, diseases and wars - riots especially in the Middle East have been taking place (see CNN) not to mention the global economic crisis, the oil spill disaster (2nd Trumpet Judgement?), the massive volcano eruption in Iceland, causing untold problems in Europe and around the world, and many other natural disasters of a much greater magnitude than ever before. + We are the generation which is likely to see a cataclysmic nuclear warfare. In the first half of the 20th century, a nuclear warfare was unimaginable. Experts say that a nuclear war is NOW INEVITABLE!
One could say: these things have been going on for centuries. Yes they really have, but not so often and not in such intensity. These things are now happening at the same time, getting worse and even worse!
When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near."(Luke 21 verse: 28)
And what could we say about the people in the last days?
I dont think I should describe how cruel and evil people are and its getting even worse unfortunately BUT it will come to an end very very soon!
Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, and saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation." (2nd Peter 3 verse: 2-3)
This know also that in the last days, perilous times shall come.
For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of all those that are good, traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of god, having a form of godliness, but denying its power thereof. From such turn away.(2nd Timothy 3 verse: 1-5)
"For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; and they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables." (2nd Timothy 4 verse: 3-4)
All in all this cannot be compared to the second part of the Tribulation called The Great Tribulation which runs from 11 April 2012 to 23 September 2015.
Please note that 11 April is a significant date.
1.) In 1996 and 1997, something happened that caused a whole lot of excitement among Biblical astronomers and astute watchmen. Two bright comets crossed at the EXACT SAME COORDINATES IN THE SKY. Comet Hyatuke crossed these coordinates in the sky on APRIL 11, 1996, and comet Hale-Bopp crossed THESE SAME EXACT COORDINATES ON APRIL 11, 1997
The crossing of the two bright comets took place right between the eyes of Rosh Satan.
What is God trying to show us? Satans man, the Antichrist.
2.) It is right in the middle of the Holy Week of 2012. According to the Bible we know that the Antichrist will be killed just before the beginning of The Great Tribulation (Book of Revelation 13).
If the Antichrist is going to try to imitate Christ, by resurrecting from his mortal head wound, after 3 days, what better time to do it, than during the Holy Week, during the Spring Feast Days. April 11, 2012, IS RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE HOLY WEEK!!! CHRIST ROSE UP FROM THE DEAD ON 11 APRIL, TOO! Thats the time when Obama becomes Satan Incarnate. He will desecrate the sanctuary in Jerusalem and deceive the world!
During The Great Tribulation all hell breaks lose!
Persecution of the
(It is something that has been going on for years, even in our era, but it will soon become a real nightmare!)
Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake.
And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come (Matthew 24)
What is the Mark of the Beast?
The Mark of the Beast is the VERICHIP RFID (Radio Frequency Identification Device)!
And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. (Revelation 13 verse: 16:17:18)
Check out the videos linked above to see that the number of Barack Hussein Obama is 6~6~6!
Brief information on the verichip:
At the present time, computer-assisted biometric identification systems are being developed rapidly and have been readily accepted into our society. Miniature computer chips using Radio Frequency Identification
technology, have already been embedded within electronic appliances, retail goods, livestocks and we (humans) will soon be forced to be chipped as well! A technology of this kind was unheard before! we are the first (and last!) generation that is exposed to this wicked system!
"Many shall run to and fro and knowledge shall be increased." (Daniel 12 verse: 4)
The verichip is a small Radio Frequency Identification Device (RFID). It has an identification number and it has the size of a grain of rice. This device is implanted surgically into the human body, specifically on the back of the right hand or in the forehead just as it is written in the Book of Revelation!
The device is used as a method of accessing medical records in an emergency, for use as a payment device which actually clears the path for the Global Cashless Society, as a way to control access to secure facilities (all the significant data of a person such as the social security number, Identification number, etc.. are stored in it.), and for use as a GPS tracking system.
It is now self-evident that if you do not receive the chip, you will drop out of society (you simply won't be able to buy and sell etc.. just as it is written in the Book of Revelation!) You will totally be reliant on yourself to survive. Not to mention the fact that as soon as it turns out that you do not worship the Beast and his image or that you refuse to take his mark, you will surely be hunted for and murdered in cold blood.
Even if that is the case, you must not get yourself chipped! Once you take the mark, you willfully put your faith in man and not in God and you acknowledge that you don't trust him to provide for your needs!
Another interesting point is that the chip contains a transponder and a rechargable lithium battery. If the battery were to break, the lithium would flow out and cause a grievous boil or sore and much agony to the host.
"The first angel went and poured out his bowl on the land, and ugly, noisome sores broke out on the people who had the mark of the beast and worshiped its image." (Revelation 16 verse: 2)
The Global Cashless Society is a very important part of the New World Order and this biochip-implantation will soon be compulsory worldwide. Whatever happens, DO NOT TAKE THE MARK! CHOOSE TO DIE FOR JESUS INSTEAD! ONCE YOU TAKE THE MARK YOU WILL CONDEMN YOUR SOUL TO HELL!
"And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,
The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb." (Revelation 14 verse: 9:10)
Whats the chance of these 7 years (29 October 2008 23 September 2015) being the Tribulation period?
This day is also the end of both a Jubilee cycle and
a Sabbatical cycle.
The term Jubilee comes from Leviticus 25: 8-13 and the Jubilee cycle is seven x seven years or 49 years. The Year of Jubilee is Gods 50th Year which begins at the blowing of the shofar (trumpet) on Yom Kippur of the 49th year of each Jubilee cycle.
A Jubilee cycle began on 7 June 1967 and will end exactly 49 years (17640 days) later on Yom Kippur 23 September 2015!
The term Sabbatical comes from the word Sabbath (Saturday) and it is made up of 7 years.
From this it follows a Jubilee cycle is made up of 7 Sabbatical cycles. (7*7=49)
A Sabbatical cycle began on 29 October 2008 and will end exactly 7 years (2520 days) later on Yom Kippur 23 September 2015!
What else do we have to know about the Jubilees?
The Jubilee clock began ticking in 1416 BC when the children of Israel entered Canaan. The first Jubilee was 49 years later in 1367 BC. Every 49 years another Jubilee has occurred.
The final (70th) Jubilee cycle will end on the Day of Atonement in 2015. There will have been 40 complete Jubilee cycles following Christs death. Isnt that interesting? There are so many 40s in the Bible and 40 is a significant number to God. The 40 Jubilees after Christs death bring us to the end of probationary time.
Jesus ascended to Heaven in the middle of the 29th Jubilee cycle. When Jesus comes the second time to get His people He will have reigned in heaven as king for 40 ½ Jubilee cycles. He will have reigned from 31 AD 55 AD (1/2 Jubilee cycle) and from 55AD 2015 AD (40 Jubilee cycles) for a total of 40 ½ Jubilee cycles.
David reigned in Hebron 7 ½ years and in Jerusalem 33 years for a total of 40 ½ years. David was a type of Jesus and Davids throne was given to Jesus after His resurrection.
David (a type of Jesus) reigned as king on Earth for 40 ½ years.
Jesus will reign as king in heaven for 40 ½ Jubilees.
Is it logical for God to give 49 years (one Jubilee Cycle) to Israel before the Messiah returns? Let us remember the Parable of the Fig Tree.
The budding of the Fig Tree (Israel) thrust the world into the last days. If Jesus did not return at the end of THIS Jubilee and Sabbatical cycle, the Parable of the Fig Tree would not be correct!
The Parable of the Fig Tree is of great importance! It tells us that the TIME IS RIPE!
All the dates set before the revival of Israel were bogus and useless!
The seven Feasts of Israel:*
Jesus fulfilled the first four of the Seven Feasts of Israel at his first coming.
They are the Spring Feasts of Israel.
Passover - Fulfilled by Jesus at his crucifixion in the spring of 31 AD
Feast of Unleavened Bread - Fulfilled by Jesus at his burial in the tomb in the spring of 31 AD
Feast of First Fruits - Fulfilled by Jesus at his resurrection in the spring of 31 AD
Pentecost - Fulfilled by the Holy Spirit in the summer of 31 AD
A gap of 2000 years or so has allowed the Light of Israel to go forth into the nations for the Gentiles to be evangelized.
Now here are the next three holy days on the Hebrew Calendar which will be fulfilled by Jesus at his second coming. They are the Fall Feasts of Israel.
Rosh Hashanah (Feast of Trumpets) Unfulfilled (as of yet)
Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) Unfulfilled (as of yet)
Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles) Unfulfilled (as of yet)
THE TIME FRAME IS ENTRENCHED! IT CANNOT BE MOVED!
THE FINAL 7-YEARS RUNS FROM: 29 OCTOBER 2008 TO 23 SEPTEMBER 2015, THE MIDPOINT OF WHICH IS 11 APRIL 2012.
THE DAY OF THE LORD RUNS FROM: September 23rd 2015 to December 24th 2018 (SEE VIDEO BELOW)!

What you're about to read is hard to believe. .
going to examine the place the Bible calls hell. We'll present documented
evidence for a place called hell. Don't take what you're going to read lightly.
If what you read is true YOU COULD BE IN
Several years ago a book was published, entitled Beyond Death's Door by Dr. Maurice Rawlings. Dr. Rawlings, a specialist in Internal Medicine and Cardiovascular Disease, resuscitated many people who had been clinically dead. Dr. Rawlings, a devout atheist, "considered all religion "hocus-pocus" and death nothing more than a painless extinction". But something happened in 1977 that brought a dramatic change in the life of Dr. Rawlings! He was resuscitating a man, terrified and screaming descending down into the flames of hell:
"Each time he
regained heartbeat and respiration, the patient screamed, "I am in hell!" He was terrified and
pleaded with me to help him. I was scared to death. . . Then I noticed a
genuinely alarmed look on his face. He had a terrified look worse than the
expression seen in death! This patient had a grotesque grimace expressing sheer
horror! His pupils were dilated, and he was perspiring and trembling he
looked as if his hair was "on end."
Then still another strange thing happened. He said,"Don't you understand? I am in hell. . . Don't let me go back to hell!" . . .the man was serious, and it finally occurred to me that he was indeed in trouble. He was in a panic like I had never seen before."
(Maurice Rawlings, Beyond Death's Door,(Thomas Nelson Inc., 1979) p. 3).
Rawlings said, no one, who could have heard his screams and saw the look of
terror on his face could doubt for a single minute that he was actually in a
place called hell!
The Bible continually warns of a place called hell. There are over 162 references in the New Testament alone which warns of hell. And over 70 of these references were uttered by the Lord Jesus Christ!
Dr. Maurice Rawlings
"To Hell and Back"
HELL IS A PLACE OF FIRE!
The man in Luke 16:24 cries: ". . .I am tormented
in this FLAME."
In Matthew 13:42, Jesus says: "And shall cast them into a FURNACE OF FIRE: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth."
In Matthew 25:41, Jesus says: "Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting FIRE,. . ."
Revelation 20:15 says, " And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the LAKE OF FIRE."
Hell is real!
THE BIBLE GIVES THE LOCATION OF HELL
When Jesus Christ died on the cross, He descended into hell. In Acts 2, Peter is speaking, verse 31, " . . . seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul was not left in HELL"
When Jesus Christ died His soul went into hell.
And in Matthew 12:40, Jesus Christ says:
"For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly: so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the HEART OF THE EARTH. "
Bible is clear Hell is inside the earth!
Ephesians 4:9, says of Jesus: "Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the LOWER PARTS OF THE EARTH."
On page 85 of Beyond Deaths Door, Dr. Rawlings writes patients who described hell said, ". . . this place seems to be UNDERGROUND or WITHIN THE EARTH in some way."
Scientist and Bible teacher, Henry Morris also agrees the Bible plainly teaches that hell is in this earth:
far as we can tell from Scripture, the present hell, is somewhere in the heart
of the earth itself. It is also called 'the pit' (Isa. 14:9, 15: Ezek.
32:18-21) and 'the abyss' (Rev. 9:2). . .
The writers certainly themselves believed hell to be real and geographically 'beneath' the earth's surface. . .
To say this is not scientific is to assume science knows much more about the earth's interior than is actually the case. The great 'pit' [hell] would only need to be about 100 miles or less in diameter to contain, with much room to spare, all the forty billion or so people who have ever lived, assuming their 'spiritual' bodies are the same size as their physical bodies."
(Henry M. Morris, The Bible Has the Answer, p. 220)
The Birmingham News, April 10, 1987 had an
article entitled "Earth's Center Hotter Than Sun's Surface, Scientists
Say". The article stated that scientists have recently discovered, "THE
EARTH'S INNER CORE HAS A TEMPERATURE OF OVER 12,000 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT!"
Have you seen pictures of a volcano erupting, spewing a lake of fire from inside the earth consuming everything within miles just from the heat? When Mount St. Helens erupted in May 18, 1980, it was described by reporters, "when HELL surfaced upon the earth." The book, Volcanoes, Earth's Awakening (p.91) describes an erupting volcano as "descent into HELL".
Thousands of years ago, the Bible described a place called hell in the heart of the earth that matches exactly what science is discovering.
