THE DAYS OF LOT: JOE BIDEN’S SECRETARY OF STATE ANTONY BLINKEN ORDERS LGBTQ+ PRIDE FLAGS TO BE FLOWN NEXT TO THE U.S. FLAG AT ALL US EMBASSIES WORLDWIDE! THE ADMINISTRATION IS RACING TO REMOVE GOD BY ELEVATING EVIL AND CALLING IT GOOD! (Isa. 5:20)
Aligning With Evil
In the Bible, God destroyed both Sodom and Gomorrah for the wickedness and the LGBTQ+ lifestyle is spoken against in both the Old and New Testaments including in the writings of the Apostle Paul for the Church Age.
Yet ironically, just two weeks into the new administration, America has decided to issue an ordinance proclaiming solidarity with the very practice God hates.
Of all the things we should be focusing on, it seems the most important issue to the reprobate minds in this administration is calling evil good and facilitating the demise of America.
As the world races toward the 7-year Tribulation, what happens to America? Bible prophecy indicates America is no where to be found by the time of the Tribulation. It’s not good for the future of the red, white and blue!
“Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, and built; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.” Luke 17:28,29
It’s becoming more obvious that God’s protective hand is moving off America and His abandonment wrath is falling on our nation as outlined by the Apostle Paul in Romans One. What you will see take place over the next few years will astonish many Bible believing Christians.
Most people on Earth right now are already amazed at the rapid change of events in our country. America is sitting in the most vulnerable position we’ve ever been in with the blind leading the blind and trying to impeach an ex-president. Our enemies are laughing but the church should be crying as God’s anger is coming!
America may still be the world’s only superpower, but faster than you can blink, just as God dealt with ancient Judah, America’s fortunes could evaporate.
This administration seems dedicated to that end.
Don’t think it can happen? You’re watching it, stay tuned, it will surely be a rough 4 years.
“Thine own wickedness shall correct thee, and thy backslidings shall reprove thee: know therefore and see that it is an evil thing and bitter, that thou hast forsaken the LORD thy God, and that my fear is not in thee, saith the Lord GOD of hosts.” Jeremiah 2:19

Biden’s choice of Antony Blinken to run the State Department will take the country backwards to the Obama era and beyond. Blinken, like all Biden’s picks is a liberal internationalist who hates the concept of America first. Instead, he believes in working on behalf of U.S. interests through multilateral institutions. He favors U.S. decisions be channeled through the United Nations, NATO and traditional alliances. To borrow a phrase from the Obama era, he favors ‘leading from behind.’
Secretary of State Antony Blinken orders LGBTQ flags flown at U. S. Embassies and announced he will also appoint a special envoy for Gay Rights.”
FROM BREITBART NEWS: Outfront magazine reported on the development:
“The Biden administration is off to a hopeful start, as Secretary of State nominee, Antony Blinken, has confirmed a recommitment to LGBTQ rights. In a memo from July 2020, former Secretary of Defense Mark Esper released a list of flags permitted to be displayed at U.S. military bases. Missing from the list was the LGBTQ pride flag, which Esper compared to the confederate flag. Prior to the ban, embassies raised the flag during pride month on the official embassy flagpole. During the hearing, Blinken also confirmed that he plans to appoint an envoy for the Human Rights of LGBTQ persons, a position created by Barack Obama in 2015 that wasn’t filled during the Trump presidency.”
Blinken claimed violence against that demographic increased while Trump was in office.
“We’ve seen violence directed against LGBTQ people around the world increase,” Blinken said. “And so,
I think the United States playing the role that it should be playing in standing up for and defending the rights of LGBTQ people is something that the department is going to take on and take on immediately.
According to Blinken, the US is no longer in the business of shining the light of Christ or following the principles of right and wrong taught by Jesus. That’s what we did in our glory days when we honored the Lord.
But those days are over. Instead, we have moved into the era of glorifying sin and encouraging the rest of the world to follow us down the path of destruction. The reckless ungodliness and immorality of these people are the precise sins God says are a blight on the nation (Jude 1:7).
“Raising the pride flag is one way to outright show LGBTQ solidarity. Biden is the first U.S. president to openly embrace a full range of queer rights, including transgender equality,” Outfront magazine reported. READ MORE

Prophecy’s latest Hype!
New Signs In The Sky Worry Christians Who Fear That The Tribulation Period May Begin On September 23, 2017
Is This True?
Will the Tribulation begin on September 23, 2017 when we see the constellation Virgo with the sun rise directly behind it?
Before I answer, let me remind you that all too often, mysterious theories emerge that grab the attention of prophecy students. In many cases, well meaning believers get caught up in the hype and are let down. That was the case in 1988 with “88 Reasons why the Rapture will be in 88” by Edgar C. Whisenant. It happened again in 2010 with the followers of Harold Camping and again with the four lunar eclipses during 2014–2015 that caused many people to anticipate the Lord’s return. Of course this did not happen. Now it’s happening again from a misleading interpretation of Revelation 12… and it’s gaining traction.
Each time these date speculations occur, they end up giving Bible prophecy a bad reputation and a black eye. Now, with the popularity of YouTube, it’s much easier to propagate these ideas so they quickly take on a life of their own. Sadly, unsuspecting prophecy students tend to swallow it hook, line and sinker. So, just as I taught about each of those previous events, be aware of fanciful books and slick calculations that take ten wise men to debunk.
What’s All the Rage?
The prophecy blogosphere is abuzz about a supposed event of great prophetic significance on September 23 of this year. Many videos on the internet are promoting this. On this date, the sun will be in the constellation Virgo (the virgin), along with the moon near Virgo’s feet. Additionally, Jupiter will be in Virgo, while the planets Venus, Mars, and Mercury will be above and to the right of Virgo in the constellation Leo. Teachers are falsely claiming that this is a rare event (allegedly once in 7,000 years) and that it supposedly is a fulfillment of a sign in Revelation 12 to let us know the Lord is coming soon.
Revelation 12:1–2 (ESV) reads: And a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. She was pregnant and was crying out in birth pains and the agony of giving birth.
Signs from Virgo in the Sky?
So we have here a woman (Virgo) in the sky (heaven), along with the sun, and the moon at her feet. What about the 12 stars? Virtually all the websites promoting this prophetic sign state that there are nine stars in Leo, but with the addition of the three planets (which appear as bright stars), there will be 12 stars. Since Leo is to the upper right of Virgo’s head, one might see this as a crown of 12 stars thus fulfilling the sign described in Revelation 12, “and on her head a crown of twelve stars.” Did you get that?
Scientific answers from “Answers in Genesis”
“Since the claim that Leo has nine stars is false, the assertion that the addition of the three planets brings the total number of stars in Leo to 12 is false too. And how rare is this occurrence, to have these additional three planets in Leo at the same time that Jupiter is in Virgo? It isn’t that common, but according to astronomy scholars it’s happened many times over the past 7,000 years, so the claim that this unusual event is so rare is false too. And how do we know that Jupiter is supposed to represent the child in Revelation 12? There is no evidence for that either. Instead, these are mere assertions and rumors someone has made with others repeating the false claims.” (www.answersingenesis.org)
What Does Revelation 12 mean?
Over the years, I’ve enjoyed studying Revelation 12 and have had the privelge of teaching it a number of times. It happens to be one of my favorite chapters and provides a unique perspective on the interaction between Satan and Israel, Satan and our world and Satan’s activities during the Tribulation Period. The language and context of Revelation 12 is to be taken symbolically not literally.
The woman is Israel and the dragon is Satan. The woman with the sun, moon and 12 stars represents the 12 tribes of Israel and is taken from Joseph’s dream in Genesis 37:9,
9 Then he dreamed still another dream and told it to his brothers, and said, “Look, I have dreamed another dream. And this time, the sun, the moon, and the eleven stars bowed down to me.”
The “woman with child” is a depiction of Israel who longed for the appearance of their Messiah. The Dragon in front of the woman portrays how Satan sought to destroy the Jewish people throughout the Old Testament in order to destroy the coming Messiah. The language used is never meant to be taken as a literal constellation. Nor does it ever tell us to be looking for it as a special sign-constellation announcing the soon return of the Lord in the end times. That is pure fantasy!
Conclusion… Are You Ready?
What sort of prophetic event is this sign supposed to usher in? Clearly, most people promoting this have in mind the Lord’s return. Some explicitly state this, but others, mindful of the words of Jesus in Matthew 24:36 are hesitant to make that claim, though their implication is clear enough.
These types of claims have been made many times before. I suspect that the same will be true on September 23 this year. The Tribulation will not begin on September 23, 2017, when we all see the constellation Virgo with the sun rising directly behind it. People who get excited about these supposed signs miss the point that Jesus made in Matthew 24:42
Instead of setting dates, we ought to be ready for His return at any moment. Are you ready?
