Prophecy Students!

Please Be Aware!!!

The media and prophecy websites are ablaze today and pontificating about the hidden meanings of today’s ellipse.

In the eyes of some Christians, the solar eclipse is some kind of end time sign. But that’s simply NOT what the Bible says!

The various blood moons and eclipses that have shown up over the last few years are not the astrological signs that are in the prophecies of the Bible.

All of the signs in the sun, moon and stars, etc. that appear in the prophetic passages of Scripture relate to the final seven year Tribulation Period and are signs for broadcasting Christ’s Second Coming (not the Rapture).

Such phenomena are a common feature of the Day of the Lord, the Tribulation Period, as can be seen in the following passages: Isaiah 13:9-10; Ezekiel 32:7-8; Joel 2:10 31; 3:15; Amos 8:9, and in Christ’s Olivet Discourse prophecy in the gospels:

 

Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.
Matthew 24:29

 

None of the dramatic heavenly phenomena like today’s eclipse, that everyone is talking about, are legitimate prophetic signs relating to the church age. Search as you will but you won’t find any heavenly signs relating to America at the end of the church age!

And there are no signs for the Rapture that need to be fulfilled.

So for the most part, everyone is simply guessing about what the deeper meaning is but there isn’t any Scripture to let us know. Don’t forget to wear your sunglasses to enjoy God’s majestic creation!

Anti Israel demonstrations, like the recent, “STOP THE GENOCIDE” rally (against Israel) in London continue to grow in attendance around the world. London’s rally brought out 100’s of thousands of jubilant supporters who would be happy to see the genocide of Israel. This isn’t just wrong, it’s demonic! Watch the video below.

Hamas killed 1,200 civilians, many were set on fire while they were alive. They were burned in their homes. Mothers were raped while their children watched, then shot. Children were shot to death while their mothers watched. The babies were decapitated, others were burned alive.

After all the horrible brutality, the world has turned against Israel in a rage which is now flinging us, faster then ever, toward to the events described in Daniel, Joel, Zechariah and Revelation about the last days!

The battle in Gaza rages in the south. The storm clouds of war build in the north. The political opposition to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is back at it, trying to remove him from office. A crazy president in Brazil is comparing Israel to Hitler’s Germany. Ignorant mobs the world over are chanting their slogans of love for the perpetrators of the October 7 massacre, while vehemently condemning the victims. Christians are regularly being slaughtered by Islamists in Western Africa, but the press is ignoring it. Iran missed a turn somewhere and found themselves at the South Pole, so they decided to lay claim to it. Another Putin critic, healthy and only 47-years-old, somehow managed to die in prison. And the president of the most powerful nation in the world, well, let’s just say it appears he may be slightly past his prime.

But through it all, we know that God is in control, and that is why there are great things happening too. There are pro-Israel rallies and marches in many areas of the world. The new Argentine president has been very supportive of Israel, and the mainland European country that has given Israel some of the most support is Germany, of all places! While the U.S. is turning into a political morass for Israel, we continue to send arms and much needed munitions, particularly for Israel’s missile defense systems. Israel has established a land route to bypass the Houthi blockade of the Red Sea that is bringing us supplies from India via the UAE, Saudi Arabia, and Jordan. And Israel is forging deeper friendships with most of the Gulf States, as well as, very quietly, the family of Saud in Riyadh.

The angel of the LORD encamps all around those who fear Him, and delivers them. Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man who trusts in Him!
Psalm 34:7-8

The Middle East

 

The War in the South

 

The work dismantling the tunnel system in Khan Yunis continues. Spearheading this operation is Yahalom, a “special forces” unit of the Israel Defense Force’s (IDF) Combat Engineering Corps. The goal of Operation Protective Edge is to put out of commission Hamas’s extensive tunneling throughout the Gaza Strip. It is extremely dangerous work as there are many places for terrorists to hide and booby-trapping is extensive. But through it all, Yahalom and other units of the IDF are making amazing progress.

Despite international protests, the IDF launched an operation against Nasser Hospital in Khan Yunis. As expected, it was crawling with Hamas. Hundreds of terrorists were arrested, and many weapons were destroyed. A vehicle stolen from Kibbutz Nir Oz was found on the premises, as were packages of necessary medicine for the hostages that were never distributed. The IDF must fight Hamas where it is at. It is the terrorists who chose Nasser Hospital as the battleground. They are the ones who bear the blame for the resulting humanitarian issues. It is no wonder that more and more Gazans are fed up with Hamas and are speaking out against them. A Gazan widow, in response to the leaflets that Israel dropped offering cash rewards to anyone who could provide the location of Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar, was recently recorded saying, “I swear, if I knew where he was, I’d bring them Sinwar’s head for free.” Many have lost everything in this war, and they are quickly realizing that the blame does not lie in Israel but with the terrorists within their midst.

With the operations of both Northern Gaza and Khan Yunis coming closer to completion, the focus is on Rafah. The plan of the war cabinet for that southern region of Gaza is to enter strong close to the beginning of Ramadan. The IDF will likely move to encircle Yahya Sinwar from all sides, then conduct negotiations for the release of the abductees.

What these negotiations will not include is a promise of a permanent ceasefire if that means Hamas remains a viable entity. Nor will it include any verbiage hinting at a Palestinian state. Prime Minister Netanyahu has been adamantly against a two-state solution, despite the hard push from the United States. The Knesset on Wednesday backed the PM up with an overwhelming majority, only one vote short of 80% support, that included his own coalition and many from the opposition.

 

The War in the West Bank

 

Many believe that the IDF is only facing the enemy in the south and the north. However, the West Bank is a dangerous place in which many belonging to Hamas and the Palestine Islamic Jihad (PIJ) are harbored along with an extremely large cache of weapons. Almost nightly, there are operations into the region, such as the one that took place in Jenin on Wednesday. Three terrorists were killed and 40 more were arrested when the IDF raided two houses. Also, many weapons were seized, and improvised explosive devices (IED) were located and disarmed along the roads in and out of the city. The West Bank terrorist cells are especially concerning, because when the battle in the north eventually begins, Israel will immediately face another front right in the heart of the nation.

The West Bank is also the origin of numerous terror attacks on Israeli civilians, including the one that recently took place near Jerusalem. Three Palestinian gunmen from the Bethlehem area opened fire on a line of cars stuck in traffic. Put yourself in that situation. You’re just going to work when suddenly automatic weapons are being fired at you and the cars around you. And because you are in traffic, you’re trapped and helpless with nowhere to go. One man was killed in the attack and 11 more innocent civilians were wounded. Two of the gunmen were killed at the site of the attack by police and armed citizens, and the third was “neutralized” a short time later.

 

The War in the North

 

The “soft war” in the north continues with rockets crossing the border southward and airstrikes directed north. A targeted elimination by Israel killed two in the Kfar Sousa neighborhood of Damascus, a district known for the presence of Iranian security personnel. The Israeli airstrike took place just one day short of the one-year anniversary of a similar attack directed at Kfar Sousa. Eventually, the generals of the IRGC are going to catch on that their people are much safer when they are kept in Iran. Although, that’s not always the case.

The IDF continues their “softening” of targets in Lebanon prior to the coming launch of the war in the north. A concerning report was released on Tuesday by French newspaper Liberacion that claims that Hezbollah has a tunnel system in Lebanon that dwarfs that of Gaza in both size and sophistication. Back in the 1980s, Iran and North Korea came alongside Hezbollah to begin the tunneling, and the terrorist organization has been working on it for the past four decades. The tunnels can be used for attack, troops movement, warehousing, barracks, and other needs. Hundreds and hundreds of kilometers stretch through the country of Lebanon reaching Syria and Israel.

 

Yemen

 

The Houthis of Yemen continued their attacks on shipping throughout the week, leading U.S. forces to carry out five self-defense strikes on Saturday. Each strike was aimed at lessening the terrorist group’s ability to carry out their missile launches. This morning, however, it became quite evident in Israel’s southern city of Eilat that the Houthis still have plenty of capability when warning sirens sounded. A surface-to-surface missile was inbound toward the city. Thankfully, the Arrow missile defense system was able to intercept and destroy the threat before it reached its target.

 

Iran

 

Iran has declared property rights in Antarctica and announced sovereignty over the South Pole. Sometimes the potential jokes are so plentiful that it is best just to sit back and let the fact stand on its own.

The Day That Changed The World

The Day That Changed
The World

The world has been in an uncontrollable rage since October 7, 2023. We are witnessing global Israel Derangement Syndrome and renewed anti-Semitism more brutal than the 1930s. And towards whom is the rage directed? Towards those who were invaded, slaughtered, and kept as hostages.

Imagine worldwide hatred against innocent victims and global sympathy for barbarians because Israel supposedly stole land. So, now we see, the false notion of occupied land has become the end-time provocation for turning against Israel.

God’s land is not occupied territory. Jesus did not live in occupied territory. God owns it (Leviticus 25). He permanently gifted it to the Jews (Genesis 15).

The World Calls Evil Good!

Following the attack, the logic said that sympathy would eventually shift towards those who suffered the unspeakable blow, since many victims were women, children, and the elderly. Apparently not. The world stage featured, over several weeks, millions of people in global demonstrations on behalf of the terrorists—Hamas! Talk about a classic case of calling evil good (Is. 5:20).

For months, the world was given a sickening overdose of, “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free.” In reality, this catchy phrase is a call for the genocide of the Jewish people. Participants in global demonstrations appeared to be many mind-numbed young robots, most not knowing any facts on the ground. Facts didn’t matter.

This was a conflict of the oppressed versus the oppressor. The so-called Palestinian was the classic representative of the world’s oppressed. Israel was the Goliath who needed to be punished and exterminated as all oppressors must be.

Brainwashed Agitators from the Tik Tok Generation

The demonstrators, in two-dozen nations, are ignorant concerning the history, as well as the geographical and political implications of the Mideast. What the Bible says is irrelevant. The rabble-rousers know nothing of Israel’s endless concessions over the decades to her Islamic neighbors, all in the name of peace.

They know nothing of the 2,000 years of wandering, persecution, and endless attempts by Kings, generals, Fuhrers, potentates, and presidents, to wipe out the memory of Israel’s existence. The brainwashed agitators are feeding off of social media propaganda, swallowing the lies like they were candy, and impressing their friends with how tolerant and justice-minded they are.

They are naïve and cannot comprehend that those they are championing, celebrating, and defending, would obliterate them in a heartbeat, in just as brutal a manner, as they incinerated Israelis on October 7, 2023. And again, for no reason other than to exercise their barbarism against the enemies of Islam.

  • Revelation 13:15 ,“And it was allowed to give breath to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast might even speak and might cause those who would not worship the image of the beast to be slain.”
  • Qur’an Sura 9:111a, “[Allah] hath purchased of the believers [Muslims] their persons and their goods; for theirs (in return) is the garden (of Paradise): they fight in His cause and slay and are slain.”
  • Revelation 9:11, “Their king is the angel from the bottomless pit; his name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek, Apollyon – the Destroyer.”
  • Qur’an Sura 9:29-30, “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day … nor acknowledge the religion of [Islam], even if they are of the People of the Book [Jews and Christians] … may Allah destroy them.”

Befriending Monsters

Those Israelis in southern Israel were championing the people of Gaza! The Israelis were there to benefit the Gazans—to employ them, take them to appointments, and more. They lived and believed the liberal lie: That we can befriend monsters and make them like us. That Islam is not so bad, in fact. We can all get along.

  • Qur’an Sura 8:59-60, “Prepare against them whatever arms and weaponry you can muster so that you may terrorize them.”

Rushing Towards the Time of Jacob’s Trouble

So, let’s look at this from a spiritual perspective. We are in a run-up to the Tribulation—the Time of Jacob’s Trouble. The Jews are the primary player in that horrific drama. The raptured church is enjoying heaven. The Jews are Jacob; believers are the bride.

Satan longs to defeat God’s end-time plan, which seriously trounces him. Whether it’s Sennacherib, the King of Assyria, or Haman, from Persia, they plot and scheme. Whether it is Hitler or the Iranian mullahs, they never cease their plot to eliminate all Jews. The persecutors will come and go, but the persecution will remain until Jesus returns in the Second Coming!

As the people of Israel get more and more war-weary, as they tire of relying on fences that fail and agreements that are broken, sooner or later they will accept the cunning lies of Antichrist who comes on the scene right before the start of Daniel’s 70th Week. They sign a fateful agreement as outlined in Daniel 9:27, not realizing this is Antichrist who will eventually turn on them in an attempt to fulfill Satan’s plan of the ages: the extermination of every Jew, to foil God’s end-time plan.

Satan has plans to fulfill a 3-fold plan in order to foil God’s plan before Jesus returns at His Second Coming. His strategy is to 1) Kill as many Jews as possible so not enough Jewish people remain on earth for King Jesus to rule over, 2) Take full control of the promised land so Israel no longer controls the land for Jesus to build His kingdom on and lastly 3) Build a massive Muslim war machine able to kill Jesus (again) when He returns.

The Genie is Out of the Bottle!

What happened on October 7, 2023, is not just “one more Mideast conflict.” It was inspired by demons, and it unleashed demons on the world. The perpetrators were demon-possessed. The facts on the ground are clear evidence of that. In the natural, mankind cannot dream up such brutality. Satan can.

A genie was let out of the proverbial bottle. Something ominous spread all over the world in October of last year. It has apocalyptic overtones. You can’t put it back in the bottle! Our world was forever changed.

And all of this hatred against a people who have been a blessing to the earth! A people who gave us the Prophets, the Apostles, the Messiah; in fact, salvation itself is of the Jews (John 4:22).

Spitting in the Apple of God’s Eye

In spite of such blessings, there are entire denominations that are standing with those who perpetrated the worst massacre of the innocent in recent history. They worship social justice. They teach that the church is the new Israel (Replacement Theology). They major in minors and lead the flock astray. They fly rainbow flags in front of their church. They spit in the “apple of God’s eye” (Zech. 2:8).

I end with a quote from Dr. Natan Kellerman:

“There is something unprecedented about the European Holocaust. For the first time in the bloodstained history of the human race, a decision was birthed in a modern state, in the midst of a civilized continent, to track down, register, mark, isolate, dispossess, humiliate, concentrate, transport, and murder, every single person of an ethnic group as defined by the perpetrators.

“This was targeted at an ethnic group who so generously contributed to the culture of the world; to a people who have borne the brunt of enmity toward them because they dared to be different, and dared to insist on their difference.”

Is it 1938 again?

Israel War Update: What The World Should Expect

Israel War Update: What The World Should Expect

 

Israel War Update
What The World Should Expect

11/5/23 – By Tim Buck
Fotet.org

 

The people of Israel are shaken and still recovering, like trying to get your breath back after being punched in the stomach. They are wounded, they are mourning, they are reeling, but not helpless. Hamas miscalculated, and now they are paying a high price.

With one month passed, it is important to look at where Israel is now, and to see what Israel and the world can expect in the future.

The Past

On October 7 at 6:30 in the morning, more than 3000 Hamas terrorists and Gazan civilians crossed the border into Israel. They didn’t just have murder on their minds. They were also intent on committing torture, rape, and kidnapping. All four of their goals were accomplished in the most evil and horrific ways. We cannot forget the indiscriminate rape and slaughter at the music festival. We cannot let the stories of children tortured and killed in front of their parents, of a pregnant woman being torn open and a knife being plunged into her unborn child, of two stacks of ten children each who were set fire and burned alive, of husbands being forced to watch their wives being raped before they were executed with a bullet to their heads. Time can morph those actions into just a number – more than 1400 killed. That number is tragic, but it is clinical. We must never forget what that number represents – 1400 acts of the most barbaric evil this world has seen.

We must also remember that there are at least 240 hostages still being held by Hamas and Gazan civilians. Many are children of all ages, even down to infants. Many are women, from teens on up. They are being brutalized beyond comprehension. I woman recently posted a Palestinian woman explaining how the Koran taught that female prisoners of war should be “humiliated” in the worst possible ways. When the hostages are finally freed, they will spend a lifetime processing through the trauma they have experienced. The Israeli leadership has responded by saying that those responsible will pay, and the military will ensure that our enemy is not around to do this again.

The Present

Of the billions of dollars that has been sent to Gaza for humanitarian relief, most of it has found its way into the pockets of Hamas’s leadership and into the vast tunnel system they built underground. The estimated worth of the top four leaders of Hamas is $11.4 Billion! Pushing the Palestinian lie is big business for these purveyors of evil! What they created in their “city below the city” is really quite amazing, and one has to wonder what sort of thriving society Gaza could have been right now if they had invested that money into their people and their culture rather than underground concrete tunnels and their futile mission to eradicate Israel.

Currently, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) have clamped tight their pincer strategy, effectively cutting Gaza in two. Having warned civilians to flee to the south out of harm’s way, they are now closing the circle they created around the Hamas headquarters. I can’t say it’s around the Hamas leaders, because they have been living in luxury hotels in Qatar and Turkey for years. The primary tunnels for Hamas’s headquarters are located in and around the al-Shifa Hospital in Gaza City. While the safest route for the IDF would be to drop bunker buster bombs on the site, that is not how they operate. As heinous as Hamas’s strategy is of using their own civilians as human shields, it is effective. So, the IDF is forced into a ground war that will do its best to target only terrorist combatants. This process is progressing well.

When Hassan Nasrallah, leader of the terrorist group Hezbollah, announced that he was giving a speech last Friday, the Hamas leaders were hoping he would say they were joining the war. They were let down. While Hezbollah, guided by their Iranian masters, originally had every intention of being part of this invasion of Israel, Hamas jumped the gun and went out on their own. That brought in a complication that Hezbollah and its Lebanese terrorists hadn’t expected – the United States. A US carrier group off Lebanon’s shore has given Nasrallah great pause, which is evidenced by the fact that two-thirds of his speech focused on America. But Hezbollah has not given up on their plans. They are just waiting for the right time when they once again have the element of surprise.

When Hamas first attacked, the world seemed to be with Israel. Of course, there were the usual hold outs, but a vast majority of nations condemned the attacks and sent condolences to the Jewish state. Two factors are changing that. First, there is time. The painful edge of the attack is dulling, and those who have always been anti-Israel are becoming emboldened to express their feelings once again. We see this in the United Nations. We see this in countries that are calling on Israel to pause the action in Gaza and to reconsider the proportionality of their military response. I would like to know what the proportional response is to two piles of small children who were burned alive. The proportional response to evil of that sort is to remove the evil once and for all. That is the commitment that Israel’s leadership has made to their people. And it is a commitment that they will likely pay for in condemnation from much of the world.

Already Israel has been falsely accused of bombing a hospital in Gaza. Nations across the globe rushed to condemn this heinous action of the IDF. But then the source of the explosion was proven to be one of Hamas’s own rockets. Then, on Tuesday, the United Nations Relief and Workers Agency (UNRWA) accused Israel of killing 66 innocent civilians and injuring 540 more who they say were sheltering in UNRWA schools. But in the pictures accompanying their accusation, there were sinkholes that clearly showed collapsed Hamas tunnels underneath the United Nations sanctioned school. Hey UN, didn’t you know that locating military infrastructure under schools is an internationally acknowledged war crime? I guess we shouldn’t expect anything more from an organization that has named the Iranian ambassador to chair its Human Rights Council Social Forum. Lies and fabrications will continue to rain down from the global news media. Some will stick to Israel, and, when the layer of fake news has grown enough, the world will once again turn against the maligned nation.

A recent development that is especially concerning is to see the way that Satan has gotten his foothold of antisemitism into the church. Click-bait conspiracies and unscriptural speculation is rampant from some pulpits and throughout social media. People are asking whether Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu conspired with the United States to carry out the October 7 attacks. This is not only ludicrous, it is appalling. And it doesn’t warrant explaining why this is so asinine for the same reason I do not waste time proving that 9/11 was not an inside job and that people actually walked on the moon. Anyone spreading these antisemitic lies should be ashamed of themselves.

Antisemitism is already strong enough in western cultures without the help of the church. Jews are being attacked and beaten in the streets. Some businesses have started to ban Jews, and Stars of David are beginning to appear spray-painted on Jewish-owned houses and stores. Pro-Palestinian marches and rallies are really more anti-Jew than anything else. So much of the ignorance that is leading to these mass protests originates in western academia and mosques. It is only going to get worse, as we race closer to the coming Tribulation.

The other major factor in the growth of antisemitism is the press. They have already shown their bias to a shocking degree. We are so used to seeing pictures and video of events as they happen, that sometimes we forget to ask who is behind the camera. Much of the photographic evidence taken of the atrocities on October 7 was done by Hamas members. However, we have now learned of four photojournalists who were embedded with Hamas on that day. These men who worked for AP, Reuters, CNN, and the New York Times were well-positioned to document the terrorists as they broke through the border fence, raided the Israeli villages, tortured and murdered innocent civilians, and carried away hostages and dead bodies. The fact that these morally bankrupt voyeurs kept their cameras to their eyes but their phones in their pockets is nothing short of complicity. The silence of the news media giants who excitedly published the pictures coming in from these men, knowing full well their situational provenance, makes them equally as guilty of collaboration. This is the media that the world turns to for truth about Israel.

The Future

Israel will fully deal with Hamas. In the same way Operation Wrath of God ensured that everyone involved in the 1972 Munich Olympics massacre was permanently dealt with, each member of the Hamas leadership has a date coming with either the IDF or the Mossad. Hamas, as a terrorist organization, will cease to exist. Hezbollah will also be forced to back down. I hope that it can be done the easy way with them pulling back from the border and dismantling their armaments. But if Hezbollah insists on doing it the hard way, the IDF will do whatever it takes to ensure Israel’s safety. Finally, there will come a time when Israel exacts its punishment against Iran. They were the masterminds behind all that has taken place, and they must learn that planning, ordering, and funding that kind of terror comes with a very high price.

It is likely that the U.S. will get drawn deeper into Syria and Iraq. It’s quite amazing how little uproar is being caused within America over the constant attacks on our bases in the Middle East. U.S. soldiers are experiencing grievous wounds, and I’m wondering where the response is. It is as if this current administration is so desperate for a new deal with Iran that they are willing to ignore the fact that the ayatollahs are ordering their proxy militias to send rockets and suicide drones into American military bases. The U.S. needs to show their strength in Syria and Iraq or the attacks will only intensify.

As time goes on, from the likes of this war, a ten-king alliance will emerge and grow stronger. This conflict could easily give birth to such an anti-Israel alliance. We know this because of what we see in the geopolitical world described in Daniel and Revelation. Overall, we can expect to see evil increasing around the world. For instance, just in the last few days the Muslim extremist Janjaweed militia massacred nearly 800 tribal people, mostly teenagers, in the Geneina area of Darfur, Sudan. Where are the BBC and the New York Times? Where are the marches for these victims?

This article has been necessary because of the great evil brought upon Israel and the overall dark time in our world. We live in perilous times because we live in the end times. But we know that it can never grow so dark that God’s light ceases to shine. As believers, it is our role to pray for Israel. We are to love that which God loves, and God still loves the Jewish people, as rebellious as they may be at times. He holds in His heart the ultimate example of what a Father’s love should be for a wayward child – passionate, unwavering, disciplinary when necessary, and never-ceasing.

 

PROPHECY UPDATE

PROPHECY UPDATE

PROPHECY UPDATE

By Tim Buck

9/14/2023

One of the most important international agreements in modern history is being secretly negotiated behind the scenes, and once it is publicly announced it could fundamentally change the geo-political make-up of the Middle East.

 

From a Bible prophecy perspective, what’s currently taking place has the potential to leap-frog us onto the doorstep of the Tribulation.

The ramifications of Saudi Arabia, the most fully committed Muslim country on earth, who serves as the religious authority and head of Islam, making a peace deal with the Jewish State is explosive enough. Add in the likelihood of Israel and Saudi Arabia partnering in support of a new home for the Palestinians and you have a whole new breakthrough in Bible prophecy.

 

That’s what we see happening in the near future and that’s why we’re asking for your prayers that our heavenly Father would graciously grant all of us a special discernment and wisdom in understanding His sovereign plan today!

 

Spiritual discernment is the skill of separating truth from error which Scripture encourages us to do, “examine everything carefully” (1 Thess. 5:21). It is a call to believers that is especially relevant in the last days with such deception taking place daily. Without discernment, you can get virtually any biblical truth, cultural trend or political development wrong.

The last days are challenging times for all of us that require a fresh intimacy with the Lord, new empowerment, godly discernment, added strength to persist and stamina to prevail in all He’s called us to do.

 

While we’re engaging and studying this month, we‘re also praying for you because we consider you part of this ministry through your giving, serving and prayers.

 

As we pray for you, will you pray along with us? We believe the Lord can fully prepare us to fulfill what He has called us to, but we know that “apart from Him, we can do nothing.” Will you please join us?

God’s Warnings in 2023

God’s Warnings in 2023

Preview of Coming Wrath

9/5/23  By Jan Markell

“Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?”
Revelation 6:12-17

 

‘Apocalyptic’ 

of us were heartbroken at the images coming out of Maui in early August. Everyone said it was like the end of the world. It was apocalyptic. The scenes remind us of images from WWII when dozens of cities looked like Lahaina, Maui.

But this wasn’t a war time ordeal. This was a peaceful day in paradise that was interrupted by the unthinkable. A wildfire of suspicious origin violently ended the lives of hundreds, and potentially thousands, of people whose day started like any other and ended in a hellish ordeal. We see why the Bible says, “Today is the day of salvation.” (2 Corinthians 6:2) Life can end abruptly and unexpectedly. No one is promised a tomorrow.

The word “apocalyptic” is being used all over the world as the planet groans, awaiting the liberation of Jesus Christ when He will set it free.

Elsewhere in Europe, a month of rain fell on parts of Slovenia in a single day. China experienced devastating floods. Crops throughout the region were completely wiped out, and the property damage that has been done is off the charts. Devastating heat has tormented millions of people around the world. Hail pounded Germany. Fires in Portugal created an “apocalyptic inferno.”

This, and much more, as we are in a run-up to the Rapture—the ultimate apocalyptic event.

“Go Gay Hawaii”
And divine judgment must also be considered as we see reprobate activity. “Go Gay Hawaii” welcomes everyone to gay-friendly Maui on a website built for just such promotion.

The website says, “The Maui gay community is substantial and accepting. There are numerous LGBT and gay-friendly businesses on the island, exclusive Maui gay resorts and plenty to see, do and experience on this magical island. Maui Gay Pride is a staple event taking place each year around the first weekend in October.”

The promotion continues, “In 2011, when Hawaii Governor Neil Abercrombie signed legislation legalizing gay marriage in Hawaii, he sealed the State’s fate as one of the top gay destinations in the world. We welcome you to plan your Maui gay vacation or wedding today!”

And interestingly enough, about the only structure in Lahaina not destroyed was a church, though it was not a gospel preaching church.

Preview of Things To Come

During the seven-year Tribulation, every city and nation will look like Maui. Can you imagine? I cannot. The city of Lahaina is a preview of things to come. The earth will reel from earthquakes, meteor showers and asteroids, stars falling from heaven, and the moving of mountains. One- third of the trees will burn up.

The sun will go dark and the moon will turn to blood.

Mankind will hide in caves and rocks and plead, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?” (Rev. 6:12-17).

When things are at their worst, Christ will suddenly appear on planet Earth during His second coming or “no flesh would be saved.” (Matthew 24:22)

God is warning the unbelieving world about what is coming. Billions perish during that unprecedented time, and modern-day disasters are a pale foretelling of things to come.

Before The Wrath

If you have Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior of your life, none of this is of concern. Believers escape the wrath to come in the Tribulation (Rev. 3:10).

But all of us have loved ones and unbelieving friends who know little about God’s plan of the ages. They have never been told about eternal life. They are unaware that God’s wrath is not destined for true believers—unless you tell them. And, unless you outline the plan of salvation to them. As ambassador’s for Christ, that’s our calling!

Do so today while there’s still time!
