July 1, 2018 A possible Rapture on July 7, this year?

A very interesting and well researched article. It is full of well thought, new and fresh observations of scripture.



Douglas Henney (1 July 2018)
Things might unfold a week sooner than what I was thinking

On May 27th, I posted a four part email here on Fivedoves in which I expressed the possibility of us going home on, or about, July 14/15.
Recently, I came across some things that have me thinking it may end up happening a week earlier, on July 7/8.
Here are the links to the prior posts to reference since what I am presenting here still includes a lot of my thinking in these prior emails:
A main premise in my prior thinking was that even though the Jewish Sanhedrin currently have a calendar that is not Biblically accurate, that God will still fulfill a significant type/shadow event, namely a correctly counted Pentecost, on that calendar while at the same time fulfill the rapture’s type/shadow event on His Biblically accurate calendar, namely the 18th day of the 3rd month of when God came down at Mount Sinai during a long shofar blast.  Both of these fall on July 14/15 this year.  In other words, God will fulfill both types/shadows at the same time.
I was almost in a bit of a shock when I discovered a few weeks later that there is yet another date that does the very same thing of having a Pentecost and a “18th day of the 3rd month Sinai event” dovetail together.  This happens a week prior, on July 7/8.
I am now thinking that this July 7/8 ends up being a better fitting puzzle piece, and I will try to explain this.
The Sanhedrin’s correctly counted Pentecost (7 weeks plus 50 days) on July 14/15 is a week after the correctly counted Pentecost on the popular Jewish calendar on July 7/8.  The reason for this is how one determines the beginning of a month.
July 7/8 is the 18th day of the 3rd month on the constellation calendar.  This month is commonly referred to as Gemini (shows a union of a couple).  A number of “watching for Jesus” folks have received understanding/revelation from God to pay attention to Gemini.  This Gemini focus is actually referencing the constellation calendar.
For folks not familiar with this calendar, when Jesus died and resurrected, it was when the sun was in “the Lamb of God” constellation, commonly referred to as Aries.  Jesus’ death and resurrection established that constellation month as the first month.
At this time, these constellation months start and end on about the 21st of each of the Gregorian calendar months.
I lean towards the idea that since we, as the body and bride of Christ, have been blessed with every spiritual blessing in heavenly places per Eph 1:3, that our calendar would also be in the “heavenly places”, or using constellations as months verses referencing the moon. Keep in mind that the constellations (or stars) are part of what God determined as signs, though the evil one has hijacked the original meanings and purpose by fabricating horoscopes (which we are to stay clear from).
We were not given the calendar God gave to the children of Israel.  That one is theirs.  The chosen remnant within Israel-Judah, after the extreme refinement of the coming judgement years, will ultimately inherit God’s earth based kingdom.  The body of Christ, as new creations, will inherit God’s celestial places kingdom once we get new bodies. As the Righteousness of God in our union with Jesus, there is nothing in our core selves/natures that need any refining.  All we are waiting for is new bodies.  These two distinct kingdom realms each have their own unique calendars.
So, the timing of the prior posts is, I think, going to unfold a week earlier than I was thinking.  This also seems to fit better with other pieces coming up, and during the transition of God shifting to dealing with the 144,000 and the chosen remnant within Israel/Judah.
The Sept 23rd/24th Revelation 12 sign does point to a future birth(s).  However, like Pearl Kolibri (sp?) pointed out in one of her Youtube videos, births happen anywhere from 3 weeks prior to the due date, up to 2 weeks after the due date, with only about 4-5% happening on the due date itself.  In other words, the Rev 12 sign pointed to a future window of time wherein the birth will take place.  We are in that window.
So far, no birth happened yet!  Some watchers are already doing counts from June 23rd (9 months after the Rev 12 sign) in light of the purification timeframes described in Leviticus 12.  I think it is a little premature to do this calculation yet, though I believe they are on the right track as I will try to show in what follows.
Leviticus 12 points to periods of time when the birth mother (the focus is not on the baby) cannot come before God in the temple.  40 days if she had a boy.  80 days if she had a girl.
Again, the purification of the mother is the focus of Levitcus 12, not the newly born child.  This is key.  There is confusion in the watching community because folks are not making this distinction.
Now, firstly, a question is, “Who is the mother of the body of Christ, new creations brought into union with the very Godhead?”
Paul teaches in Galatians 4:26 that the Jerusalem above (heavenly places) is free and “she is our mother”.  As new creations, we are born out of a reality that transcends creation.  We are birthed out of or God Himself, yet into His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.  God is our “mother”.   In other words, our “mother” who is “above”, does not need the 40 or 80 days of purification.  So, Leviticus 12 does not apply to the body of Christ.  Also, we are the ones about to be birthed out of the earth (so the Rev 12 sign still points to our timing window), yet we are not the mother that Leviticus 12 focuses upon.
However, there is another “mother” and another “baby” also about to be born.  The Chosen Remnant within the modern day children of Israel/Judah are about to give birth to the 144,000.  We are right on the cusp of this.  I am thinking this might happen on July 11-ish, at the midpoint of the rapture-gathering-week, after their three days of darkness similar to what Paul experienced on the road to Damacus.  This timing for the birth of the 144,000, I think, will happen just after we go home, three and a half days after, to be precise.
The Chosen Remnant of Israel/Judah is the “mother” about to give birth to the 144,000.  I believe that the Revelation 12 sign points to this mother (Although it could also be alluding to the timing of when the earth “births” the dead in Christ out of her at our homegoing.  If this is valid, I anticipate “the water breaking” just before we go home which might be a tsunami generated from the slumping off of land into the ocean off Hawaii’s main island).
Now, the question is, “Is the group of 144,000 considered male or female?”, thinking in terms of Levitcus 12 and how long they will experienceba purification before, in some way, being brought before God.
If male, then the 40 days from July 11 ends August 19th.  However, August 19 is one week early of Israel’s true Bibiblically accurate Pentecost per the “full moon starts the month” calendar (as I referenced in my prior posts).  In my original posts to Fivedoves, I was anticipating everything starting (including the rapture) on July 15, and not on July 8 like I am considering now.  In that prior scenario, the midweek point for the “birthing” of these 144,000 was July 18.  In that scenario, the adding of 40 days would have fallen on the true Pentecost.  It seemed to fit so well.  Yet, if events unfold starting a week earlier (on July 7/8) than what I originally anticipated, the 40 day purification count for the mother doesn’t fit.
This is when I noticed that Leviticus 12 focuses only on the mother. I had been lumping the mother and baby together. The Leviticus 12 purification timeframes do not apply to the 144,000.  They are the “baby”.  The 144,000 will still be sealed on the true Pentecost of August 26th.  Yet, what about their “mother”, and how does Leviticus 12 relate to this Chosen Remnant of Israel/Judah?
I had always assumed the 144,000 are considered a “male” child.  It was a premise I had to reconsider.
What if God sees them as a “female” child, even though the scriptures attach the idea of maleness to the group?  If this ends up being the case, then the remnant’s purification timeframe is 80 days after the birthing on July 11th.
I realized this is not a stretch as I consider maleness as compared to femaleness.  Think in terms that, in the natural realm (this does not apply to the members of the body of Christ wherein there is neither male nor female), the man is the head of the woman.  The description of the 144,000 in Revelation 14, after they raptured at the midpoint of the judgement years, is that they followed the lamb wherever He went (responding to Jesus’ headship) and that they are virgins, and that they are blameless.  This, to me, sounds female.
The group of 144,000 relate to Jesus as their Head, their source.  This is just like what the Bride of Christ does, even though we are made up of males and females.
I am beginning to understand that any chosen people or group of God, when they live before God in righteousness and holiness, do so only as they look to God as their Source, or Head.  In other words, these groups relate to God as “female”.
So, thinking in terms of the 144,000 being a female baby, then their “mother”, the chosen remnant of Israel/Judah, cannot “appear” before God for a total of 80 days.
I added 80 days to July 11th and it lands me smack dab in the middle of the Feast of Tanernacles on the popular Jewish calendar.
(As an aside, I believe God will continue to use their faulty calendar, while also using His true calendar, at least until the witnesses show up to set them straight.)
Now recall from Deut. 9:9, 9:18 and 10:10, that Moses went up and down three times at Mount Sinai for 40 days each time.  Which time did Moses come down “glowing”. It was after the third time!  Why didn’t he come down “glowing” the other two times?  I believe it is because God is showing us when Moses will come back down to Israel in the near future, when he will be arriving in a glowing, glorified body.  So, when might this happen?
On prior years, when I calculated when Moses would have come down that third time “glowing”,  I discovered that he would have arrived in the very middle of the Feast of Tabernacles, the same time Jesus, who was present yet in secret, started to teach Israel openly.  I anticipate that Moses will arrive to the Chosen Remnant in the middle of this coming Feast of Tabernacles.
So, after the 144,000’s “mother” has undergone her 80 days of purification this summer, this timeframe will end at the very same timing of when Moses will return back down to Israel in a glorified body, with a second set of tablets in his hands.  After her 80 days of purification, “the mother who just had a female baby” will be truly ready to hear from God.  Moses will be, to the Chosen Remnant of Israel/Judah, a representative of God Himself.  This is on/about September 27/28.
All that I have presented here in this new post is consistent with the idea that the constellation calendar is for the body of Christ, which has the 18th day of the 3rd month on July 7/8, the very same day Pentecost should have been calculated on the popular jewish calendar by adding 50 days to the end of a count of 7 weeks after the Passover’s Feast of Firstfruits.
This means I have July 7/8 as a very high watch date for when we go home, a week earlier than my last set of posts.
Now, I am thinking that Moses, once he comes back down, will be on earth all the way to Jesus’ second coming.  (I am thinking that per Zechariah 1:18-21 that there are a total of four witness : Moses, John, Elijah, and Enoch, two of which will be killed and resurrected/raptured middle of the judgement years).
Moses, due to disobedience, had his original mission of leading Israel into the promised land cut off.  Basicallly, God is going to let Moses finish his assignment during the coming judgement years.  This will include a bit of a rerun for Moses.
Just like his first time (but this next time will be at mid-judgement) Moses will lead the chosen remnant out of a latter days “Egypt” (Rev 11:8 refers to Jerusalem with this term), likely also on the 15th day of the 1st month like Moses did in Exodus 12, and into the wilderness (to Petra for 40 months?)  This remnant will receive their daily bread of manna like Jesus instructed them in the “Lord’s prayer” in order to survive until their promised land is established at Jesus’ second coming.  Moses will finally lead the remnant “into” their promised land, fulfilling his original destiny.
Moses had Joshua with him the first time around.  I think John will fill this role the second time.  Recall what Jesus told Peter about John.  “If I want him to remain til I come . . ,”  Jesus did not mean that John would live for a couple thousand years but that John would not be killed during the judgement years but be present on earth (remain) and be present at Jesus’ second coming.  This means he shows up before Jesus’ second coming.
(As an aside, John’s epistles, in part, are directed to the remnant who will survive the judgement years.  Peter’s epistles are directed, in part, to those who will be be killed for Jesus (like he was) during the judgement years.  Also, Jesus’ teachings, like the sermon on the mount, before His death and resurrection took place, were also directed, in part, to this chosen remnant in the wilderness during the judgement years, who will, at that time, not yet “be saved in one day” until their crucified and resurrected Messiah is revealed at His second coming.
I speculate that Elijah and Enoch will show up in Israel before Moses and John  I am thinking these two will be involved in teaching the 144,000 this summer, and then sealing them, as described in Revelation, and this likely taking place this August 26-ish, or Pentecost on God’s accurate calendar for Israel.  This true Pentecost might be when Enoch returns, for this is the same timing of when he was raptured per Jewish tradition.
Again, I am thinking the Body of Christ was not given the calendar that God gave the children of Israel in the scriptures.  Israel was.  Paul tells us to let no man judge us in terms of feasts, new moons and sabbaths because the substance of those types/shadows is Jesus, in Whom we are made complete.  Our inheritance is not of the earth but is of celestial places.  At the war of Michael against the evil one mentioned in Revelation, where Satan is cast to earth out of celestial dimensions (I am thinking at mid-judgement years), one reason expressed for the “casting down” is that there is “no more room” for Satan and his minions.  Why?  I am thinking that a portion of the body of Christ are going to finally take up our positions in that realm.  This is not to say we will not in some ways be actively involved in doing things on earth during the 1000 year “day of rest”.
However, Paul also explains that the feasts, new moons, sabbaths, and ultimately Israel’s calendar tied to these, are a “shadow of things to come”.  This is the basis for this presentation of my current thinking and anticipations.
Out of all of the above, what do I personally anticipate in the coming days?
As expressed in my prior posts, I am thinking judgement will start on the “end of the church age Babylon” the night of July 4, the end of our 70th “anniversary year” since Israel became a nation.  I think that Jesus gave the nations, and this Babylon in particular, an extra 50 days of grace by referencing our “anniversary years” instead of starting Babylon’s last 70 years right when Israel became a nation.  There are 50 days between May 14, 1948 and July 4, 1948.
July 4/5 the moon is also in the constellation Aquarius and its associated constellations Pegasus and Cygnus.  Per 2 Timothy 4:6-8, Paul gave clues that pointed to this constellation group as he also knew his departure was nigh, or right on the cusp.  Being “poured out as a drink offering” points to Aquarius as the picture of a man pouring out a vessel’s contents onto the ground.  Pegasus, a winged horse, points to a depature like Elijah experienced.  Cygnus has stars whose meanings include “judge”, “he who returns”, and “bringing of rewards”.  All of these are alluded to by Paul in 2 Timothy 4:6-8.  So, from this, I have speculated that whenever we go home in some future month, that the moon would have just been in Aquarius.  July 4th/5th, when the moon is in Aquarius, is just prior to the high watch day of July 7/8 that I am considering for when we might go home.
The night of July 4th might also be the 15th day of the 3rd month in Israel, yet still being on the constellation calendar.  Recall that it was on the 15th day of the 3rd month in Exodus 19 that Israel was gathered at the foot of Sinai, also echoing what the Swedish boy saw in his dream.  I am now wondering if on the night of July 4, if judgement does start on Babylon, if some of us at that very time will have it miraculously revealed to us that we have three days to let others in the body know that they are to get ready before Jesus comes on Sunday.  This would be consistent with what God did with Moses in Exodus 19.
I, for one, really feel like I need to know from God, in no uncertain terms, when Jesus is truly coming before I can give other folks the heads-up.  Even though I believe I am now seeing how a number of pieces are fitting together, I am still not 100% certain.  Being incorrect so many times prior has a way of making a person a bit gun-shy of proclaiming anything.  Perhaps, in God’s plan, and because He is Love and Grace to us, He may just give us a truly miraculous heads-up, just like He did through Moses for Israel, essentially telling us to get ready for Jesus is coming down on the third day during a loud trumpet blast.  This is actually the very thing the Swedish boy saw in his dream.

Sept 8, 2015 The book of Revelation through the lens of modern science

In this video of Mr. Gary Stearman and Mr. Brent Miller they cover the sen seals and trumpets using the lens of modern science to give a detailed and very believing explanation of the difficult to comprehend apocalyptic literature.

The book of Revelation comes to live in this excellent lecture by Mr. Brent Miller in terms that are not only possible but almost certain to occur as explained.

It is a terrible scenario to contemplate being alive at this period of time that is at the door already.

Jesus is the only path to salvation and safety from the wrath to come. Repent and call on His name as your Lord and Savior and He will deliver you.

May 5, 2014 (Jim Bramlett (4 May 2014) “40 SIGNS JESUS IS COMING”)

There are many reasons why we should be expecting the return of Jesus Christ to occur at any moment now. The video with Christine Darg puts into an order the prophecies  and reasons why. Thanks to Jim Bramlet.


Jim Bramlett (4 May 2014)

Dear friends:Middle East missionary friend, Christine Darg, has a new video titled “40 SIGNS JESUS IS COMING” available at She provides some interesting insights, some of which you may not be aware.

I have known Christine and her husband Peter for many years.  Both have been on the mission field for decades, mostly in Israel, where they have resided for years.

I urge you to connect with their ministry and be a blessing to Israel, and I believe God will bless you for doing so.

May 1, 2014 Prophecy conference interview with Bill Salus, Gary Stearman, host Jack Hibbs Part 1-Part 2

Very interesting interview with four knowledgeable Bible prophecy scholars. The questions and answers are important for the proper interpretation of prophecy and the times we live in.

There are so many prophetically predicted events happening in our world that the people who care for the prophetic Word are left amazed of the things we see and how God is choreographing the whole flow of History to fulfill His prophetic Word 100 %.

Three very important things were discussed in both parts that I think are interrelated one to the other. The book of Revelation, the Blood Moons and the prophecy of Daniel 9 of the seventy weeks.

Daniel 9 is a prophecy that spans the time of the first coming and the second coming as well as the complete restoration of the Nation of Israel as the head of the Nations of the world and God’s people. The first 69 weeks of years were fulfilled to the day with the crucifixion of Jesus. At that point a gap is introduced that leaves one week of years for the future. This week is the Apocalypse to be as yet fulfilled.

The tetrad of blood moons can be linked to the Book of Daniel 9 by the fact that the blood moons fall in Passover- Sukkot 2014 and Passover- Sukkot 2015. These two festivals of Passover and Sukkot each have the potential of being the start of the Tribulation. One has passed three are coming. See article linked below.

Dec 28, 2013 New eruption may be brewing at El Hierro volcano in Canary Islands

As earthquakes, volcano’s activity and upheavals in nature are part of the prophetic writings that will be present in the end times this news is of importance. In the past some scientific reports have said that a volcanic eruption in the El Hierro volcano can trigger a great earth slide into the ocean that could produce a mega tsunami that would reach the Atlantic coasts of the USA with disastrous consequences.

A view of El Hierro island’s coast on Nov. 6, 2011, after an underwater volcano eruption, in the Canary Islands, southwestern Spain.

Two years after a new underwater volcano appeared offshore of El Hierro in the Canary Islands, earthquake swarms and a sudden change in height suggest a new eruption is brewing near the island’s villages, officials announced Friday (Dec. 27).

After the announcement, one of the largest temblors ever recorded at the volcanic island, a magnitude-5.1 earthquake, struck offshore of El Hierro at 12:46 p.m. ET (5:46 p.m. local time) Friday, the National Geographic Institute reported. Residents on the island reported strong shaking, and the quake was felt throughout the Canary Islands, according to news reports. The earthquake’s epicenter was 9 miles (15 kilometers) deep.

Before the earthquake struck early Friday afternoon, the island’s volcano monitoring agency, Pelvolca, had raised the volcanic eruption risk for El Hierro to “yellow.” This warning means that activity is increasing at the volcano, but no eruption is imminent. A similar burst of activity prompted a yellow warning in June 2012, but the volcano soon quieted down.

Parts of El Hierro have swelled nearly 3 inches (7 centimeters) in the past week, with the growth centered between El Pinar and La Restinga, according to Involcan, the Volcanological Institute of the Canaries.

More than 550 earthquakes rattled the island between Monday and Wednesday, also centered on La Restinga. About 30 of the earthquakes were greater than magnitude 3, Involcan said. The earthquakes are triggered by magma rising underground, fracturing rocks and swelling the surface as the hot rock reaches upward. “The earthquake swarm corresponds to a new magmatic intrusion,” Involcan said Friday morning in a statement.

Friday’s preliminary magnitude-5.1 earthquake was on the opposite side of the island from the ongoing swarm.

El Hierro was the site of a spectacular underwater volcanic eruption in 2011, which severely affected island fisheries and forced islanders to evacuate.

All the signs that point to the Apocalypse and the Rapture Aug 19,2013

This article posted below is long and accurate in reporting the immediacy of the coming seven year Apocalypse.

How you stand with Jesus will determine your destiny. Will you be Raptured and avoid the destruction or are you going to go through it?

New Signs of an Imminent Rapture

New Signs of an Imminent Rapture

By Carl Worline

August 17, 2013


Around the middle of July I wrote an article about how there are so many signs pointing to the end of the Age of Grace that we can hardly see the road upon which we are traveling as we move ever closer to the rapture of the Church.  Approximately 4 weeks have passed since I wrote my previous article and during that time so many new signs have popped up that I feel an urgent need to list some of the more prominent ones.  I hope this article will encourage those who are patiently watching and longing for Jesus to come and take us home.  I also hope that, perhaps, somebody who is only lukewarm in his walk with the Lord will find this article and realize that it is time to get serious.  We actually are the last generation of the Age of Grace.  Something big is about to happen and it is not only going to happen really, really soon; it is also going to be so spectacular that it is beyond our ability to comprehend.

Time and space only permit me to list the most significant signs that have popped up in recent weeks.  There is so much more going on in the world that is pointing to an imminent rapture.  Please forgive me for all that I have failed to include.  I will also make a sincere attempt to leave out all of the signs I pointed out in my first article so as to have room for the newest signs that I feel require our attention.  For anybody who might be interested, the link below will take you to my original article:




The earth continues to groan as it longs to be free of the curse that was pronounced upon it when Adam and Eve first sinned again God.  Freakish weather continues to be the new “normal.”   This freakish weather is not being caused by global warming.  The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration reports that data for 2012 shows we are now experiencing a cooling trend, and a recent report by the Met Office shows that global warming actually ended 16 years ago.  The arctic saw the shortest summer in recorded history.  South America is currently in a massive deep freeze as the death toll in China rises from their record heat wave.  The lingering heat wave in Japan has left 19 dead and put 9,800 people in the hospital so far.  Heavy rain in Pakistan has killed hundreds.  Severe flooding continues in Southeast Asia, Myanmar, Thailand, and Vietnam.  In the past month more than 150,000 have been displaced by flooding in Sudan with more rain expected in the coming days.  Meanwhile, Germany is experiencing a heat wave and hailstones the size of tennis balls.  Rainfall in Iran has decreased by 58 percent as they continue to threaten to destroy Israel.  There were 1,122 record cold temperatures recorded in the U.S. during a single week.  The drought in New Zealand has been the most extreme in history.  Natural disasters displaced 32.4 million people in 2012 with 2013 on track to be even worse.

We are currently experiencing 34 major wildfires burning across 11 western states and staggering amounts of rainfall in 16 eastern states.  Severe heat is being felt across the entire nation.

Dormant volcanoes are coming back to life.  The last time I checked there were 7 volcanoes that were showing new activity and 9 volcanoes with on-going activity.  A volcanic eruption in Indonesia just killed 6 scientists.  Earlier this year we had 4 volcanoes erupting in Russia within a range of just over 100 miles of each other.  Many other volcanoes are showing a growing increase in seismic activity.

Earthquakes continue at an alarming rate and have become so common that they are seldom reported in the news.  The latest one was a severe, damaging, and shallow magnitude 6.9 in New Zealand on August 15th.

Strange unidentified sounds coming from no apparent source or direction continue to be reported all over the world.  The sounds in described as heavy scraping, to groaning, to booms or explosions, to a continuous hum.  A steady, droning sound that creeps in slowly in the dark of night and continues for many hours at a time has been reported in places as disparate as Taos, New Mexico; Bristol, England; and Largs, Scotland.  Loud booms have been reported in 25 regions of the U.S.

In the Bible we are given a message of judgment in the last days by the prophet Hosea about how the land, itself, will mourn:


Therefore the land mourns, and everyone who lives in it languishes, along with the beasts of the field and the birds of the sky; and also the fish of the sea disappear.  Hosea 3:2.


Perhaps we should believe what Hosea prophesied around 710 years before Christ.  I had planned to list the mass animal die-offs that have occurred in just one month picked at random this year, but the list would be too long.  Please go to the link below which lists 519 known mass animal die-offs that have occurred in 78 countries so far this year.  These are only the know occurrences.  Many more unreported ones certainly exist.  While you are there please take a few moments to pause and consider this incredible loss of life.  God is using the animals as a warning to us of what is about to come upon mankind.


On Wednesday, August 7, 2013, Japanese officials informed us that highly radioactive water is pouring out of the damaged nuclear power plant complex at Fukushima at the rate of 300 tons per day.  This highly radioactive water is systematically poisoning the entire Pacific Ocean.  There is also 400 tons of highly irradiated spent fuel rods that are tightly packed together at the moment and need to be removed as part of the clean-up.  This nuclear material has the very real potential of releasing 14,000 times the amount of radiation that was released from the atomic blast at Hiroshima 68 years ago.

Despite all of the current flooding throughout the world fresh water is becoming scarce.  One-third of the world’s population has limited access to clean water.  Egypt is ready to go to war with Ethiopia over the Nile.  Pakistan is on the verge of a crisis over the lack of drinking water.  Sub-Saharan Africa is in particularly dire need.  In 20 African countries, more than 30 percent of the population does not have access to safe drinking water.  China and India are also experiencing unprecedented strain on their drinking water supplies.  Drought in Namibia is threatening over 400,000 people with hunger.  A recent report confirms that the 2013 drought in New Zealand was the worst of all time.  The largest reservoir in New Mexico only contains 3 percent of the water that it did during the 1980’s and 1990’s.

In Chapter 24 of Matthew Jesus told us that there would be signs in the heavens of His Second Coming.  This seems very logical since they will be visible to the entire world.  There has been a huge up-tick in solar activity, especially in the southern hemisphere of the sun.  NASA tells us the sun will reverse its magnetic polarity within the next 3 months and the effects will be felt far beyond the orbit of Pluto, which is the farthest planet in our solar system.  A high speed solar wind is currently buffeting the Earth’s magnetic field and this is causing a G-1 geomagnetic storm around the Earth’s poles.  There was a very spectacular filament eruption on the sun on August 6th.  During the middle of July there was a coronal mass ejection from our sun that was large enough to have produced a Carrington-class electromagnetic pulse (EMP) disaster.  This huge pulse crossed the Earth’s orbit and barely missed colliding with the Earth.  A coronal hole has formed on the sun’s northern hemisphere and it is spewing solar wind into space.  NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory photographed the UV dark gap during the early hours of August 14th.  These coronal mass ejections in recent months have produced some spectacular displays of northern lights.  In the meantime, the Perseid meteor show has just conclude.  A new star has been discovered in the constellation Delphinus.  There was a 1,250 mile wide hurricane at the north pole of Saturn, and a meteor struck a garbage dump in China punching a 6 foot deep hole into the ground.

Jesus told us that there would be an increase of evil in the last days.  We are certainly seeing an increase of horribly sick and disgusting acts.  One small recent example would be the two 18 year old girls whose faces and upper bodies were horribly burned with acid during the recent celebration of Ramadan in Zanzibar.  I am not going to list any further examples because they are just too sickening to think about.  Nevertheless, the number of these acts continues to rise dramatically.

Islam continues to spread throughout the world with a rabid vengeance.  A group called the American Muslim Political Action Committee is planning a one million man Muslim march on Washington D.C. to protest the profiling and treatment of Muslims and they are also planning to hold it on September 11th, the anniversary of the worst domestic massacre in American history in the name of Islam.  The Muslim world continues to demand that the rest of our planet accept Sharia Law with all of its horrors.  Islam hates Jews, Christians, and all other religions with a fanatical passion that can only be described as “supernatural.”  There is also a huge increase in Muslim vs. Muslim fighting.  When the restraining influence of Christianity is snatched away from the world in the harpazo (rapture) a single worldwide religion will form in which Islam will play a very major role.  Even the leaders of Islam can sense this.  Leaders in Iran are, once again, loudly proclaiming that Armageddon is at hand and to prepare for war because the arrival of the Mahdi is imminent.

Christianity continues to spiral out of control toward extinction in the Middle East and the rest of the Muslim world.  Churches, homes, and businesses of Christians in Egypt have been stormed and burned in Egypt.  Egypt is the home to one of the oldest Christian communities in the world and also has the largest Christian population in the Middle East, totaling 8 to 12 million people.  The government of Cameroon has shut down 50 Pentecostal churches and has vowed to shut down an additional 50 churches.  Christianity is fast becoming an endangered species in Nigeria where over 100 Christians are murdered each month.  Jihad is emptying entire towns in Syria.  Christian students in Eritrea have been beaten and imprisoned for refusing to renounce Christ.  In India 5 women were publicly beaten for sharing the gospel.  On August 2nd three evangelists in Indonesia were sentenced to 3 years in prison for “evangelizing Muslims.”  U.S. State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki issued a press release condemning the “enemies of Islam” who were responsible for terrorist attacks at the end of Ramadan while remaining totally silent about the terrorist attacks against Christians throughout the entire Middle East and Muslim world.

Persecution of Christians here in the U.S. continues to grow in intensity.  Ever since the June 26th pro-gay rulings by the U.S. Supreme Court religious persecution of Christians within the United States has increased dramatically.  One example would include people who provide services for weddings and have been particularly targeted with horrific fines and even jail time for refusing to provide services for same-sex weddings.  Another example would include an airman who wrote an article entitled “No atheists in foxholes,” and was severely reprimanded for his beliefs, while atheists demanded even more severe punishment.

Anti-Semitism is also increasing.  At Toronto’s Al Quds Day very young children were featured making hate filled rants against Israel and Jews.

A major sign that the rapture and the end of the Age of Grace has to be near is the crumbling of fundamental Christian doctrines.  The name of Jesus has become a dirty word in politically correct America as well as the rest of the world.  The new pope says it is not for him to judge homosexual priests and the Vatican is even offering “time off from purgatory” for those who follow Pope Francis tweets.  Are we back to selling indulgences again?  Our evangelical community is turning away from opposing homosexuality in favor of a more tolerant atmosphere.  Television evangelist and pastor John Hagee has publicly declared that he no longer opposes a proposed ordinance that seeks to protect the rights of gays, lesbians, transsexuals, and transgender people in San Antonio, Texas.  More people in the U.K. believe in aliens from outer space than do people who believe in God.  Russia’s President Vladimir Putin has publicly declared that Christianity has helped to make Russia a great nation and has called for an end to worldwide persecution of Christians, while President Barack Obama has publicly declared that the United States is not a Christian nation and has remained silent about worldwide Christian persecution.  On July 31st a Muslim Imam opened a session of the United States Congress on Capitol Hill in Washington D.C. with an Islamic prayer. 

Blasphemy and mocking have reached a fever pitch, just as we were told it would in the last days.  A few days ago I watched a story on Fox News showing a small child praying to Obama and praising him for his greatness.  I also saw an article about a Facebook post entitled “Virgin Mary should have aborted.”  The content of the post was equally as offensive.  Similar pages are becoming increasingly more common.  I will not list any further examples because I find them so offensive.  We are very definitely in the last of the last days.

Many will argue that all sins are equally offensive to God, but I have always felt that homosexuality in all of its forms is particularly offensive to our Lord.  Perhaps this is why the supernatural forces that are at work in the world against us are so intensely determined to force the homosexual agenda upon the rest of us.  Former Archbishop Desmond Tutu has declared that he would prefer hell over a “homophobic” heaven.  Gays are set to sue the Church of England for refusing to perform same-sex weddings.  Churches in the United States now fear lawsuits over gay weddings as well.  A proposed law in San Antonio, Texas, would bar Christians, along with anybody else who opposes homosexuality, from holding public office or obtaining a city contract.  Rhode Island and Minnesota have just legalized gay marriage, bringing the total to 13 states in the U.S.  Tel Aviv has been one of the most friendly cities in the world for pro-gay couples in the world and Jerusalem, the city God claims for Himself, just held a parade to support pro-LGBT legislation in Israel.  America has granted gay spouses equal visa privileges.  The U.S. military has recently announced that same-sex spouses will gain all of the benefits open to opposite-sex spouses by September 3rd.  This includes healthcare and housing and will be open to any military member with a valid marriage certificate.  While all of this has been going on a California committee approved legislation which would cause any non-profit organization that does not embrace homosexuals to lose their tax-exempt status.

Sexual perversion continues to increase as well.  On August 11th, California’s Democratic governor Jerry Brown signed into law the “bathroom bill” mandating schools to allow boys to use girls restrooms and locker rooms, and vice-versa.  When it comes to internet porn, a recent poll found that the U.S. is well ahead of the rest of the nations of the world and that we are the host of 60 percent of the world’s pornographic web sites.  The same poll found that 30 percent of all internet traffic worldwide involves pornographic sites, and that 66 percent of the pornography in the United States originates in California.

Wars and the rumors of wars are one of the major signs we were told to watch for as a sign of the end of the age.  Russia recently held the biggest war games in decades, involving 160,000 troops.  Well over 4 million people have been displaced by fighting in Syria as the civil war in that nation lingers on.  Chemical weapons have been used in the conflict.  The fighting in Syria is becoming global as more and more nations send weapons and troops to participate in the fighting.  Zimbabwe’s government has signed an agreement to sell uranium to Iran.  Japan just unveiled its largest warship since WWII.  Bitter enemies India and Pakistan, both of whom possess nuclear weapons, are now exchanging gunfire across their borders.  We have just learned that 400 advances hand-held surface-to-air missiles were stolen from Benghazi and have fallen into the hands of radical Islamists.  Britain’s busiest airport, Heathrow, has been put on high terror alert after “credible” intelligence emerged that al-Qaeda is plotting to bring down airliners flying out of London with the help of female suicide bombers with explosives concealed in breast implants.

The IDF reports that Hezbollah has a weapons cache of 60,000 rockets and that all of Israel is now in range. Israel is now facing an on-coming al-Qaeda on all 3 Israeli borders: Golan, Lebanon, and Sinai.  Gaza has resumed firing rockets into Israel and Israel has resumed air-strikes against the terrorists who fire them.  Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has declared that his goal is to have “not a single Israeli” in a future Palestinian state.  The Palestinians have stated clearly and frequently that they will not compromise in their goal to steal all of the land of Israel and to completely once-and-for-all-time eliminate all traces of the Nation of Israel and to kill every single Jew in the world.  They refuse to recognize the very existence of Israel.  At the same time Israel continues to bomb yet another weapons convoy in Syria and has announced plans to begin the next block of homes in the West Bank, giving preliminary approval for 1,187 new settler homes.  Instead of standing with our supposed friend and ally, the U.S. State Department has bitterly criticized Israel for building settlements in the disputed territory.  Secretary of State Kerry has publicly and firmly declared that the United States views all settlements in the disputed territory as illegitimate and illegal.  America is the referee who is pushing (shoving) Israel to divide their land.  God has promised in the Bible that we will be held accountable for harming Israel.

After assuring us for months that al-Qaeda has been decimated, the United States temporarily closed 21 embassies all over the Middle East and other parts of the world over fear of an imminent attack by al-Qaeda while violence and murders all over Iraq and Afghanistan are leading us to the realization that all of our fallen and wounded soldiers, and the unimaginable amount of money that we spend, were lost in vain.

Our president has assured us that he has al-Qaeda “on the run.”  On this point he is absolutely correct.  Al-Qaeda is definitely on the run.  They are running straight at us with their bayonets fixed and wearing their explosive vests as they scream “Allah Akbar.”

We are told that one sign of the coming rapture will be the world in a political upheaval.  The latest death toll from the uprising in Egypt has now passed 800 with the number of wounded well into the thousands.  It will get much worse in the coming days.  On August 15th the military backed government of Egypt authorized the further use of live ammunition.   Anti-U.S. hostility is rapidly increasing in Egypt.  They barely tolerate our existence as they soak up billions of dollars of American foreign aide.  The new president of Egypt has even refused to take calls from Obama.  We are on the very verge of the fulfillment of Isaiah 19.  Meanwhile, CNN reports that the CIA is going to unprecedented lengths to insure that whatever it was doing in Benghazi remains secret, even going so far as to require monthly polygraph examinations of those who know the truth.

Signs of an imminent worldwide economic collapse also point to a rapture occurring at any moment.  All of the nations of the world are bankrupt to one degree or another.  Each nation holds each other up in a worldwide Ponzi scheme that could have only existed this long through divine intervention.  When the restraining force of our Lord is removed everything will collapse.  The only solution will be a worldwide currency with a mandatory and infallible means of personal identification, such as a biometric scan or an RFID chip.  Right now over 97 percent of the money in the world exists only in the electronic memory of the worlds banking computers.  Less than 3 percent of the money in the world is in the form of paper, coins, or bars of precious metal.  Traders are talking about a worldwide gold conspiracy and there is evidence to back that up.  We have record high demand for physical gold.  Earlier this year when the Germans asked for 300 metric tons of their gold from the Federal Reserve in New York they were told that it would take 7 years for the Fed to come up with it.  This set off alarm bells all over the world.  Right now the bullion banks are experiencing unprecedented difficulties in coming up with the physical gold and physical silver that they are supposed to have.  The stock market continues to set record highs yet nothing has been fixed.  Something is very wrong here.  There have been multiple occurrences of the “Hindenburg Omen” in recent weeks, which many analysts believe is a serious portent of doom in the stock market.  Nearly all of Mexico lives in poverty.  Similar to what Cypress did, Australia is now proposing a levy on bank accounts to pay government debts.  Unemployment just passed 27.6 percent in Greece.  Japan’s national debt is at $10.5 trillion dollars and is poised to set off a global financial panic at any moment.  Currently, 50 percent of all government tax revenue in Japan goes to interest payment on its debt.  Zimbabwe’s President, Robert Mugabe, has claimed a mandate for “black empowerment” and has begun seizing all foreign and white-owned assets in the country.

Signs of an imminent financial collapse in America are equally as stark.  Detroit can no longer pay its bills and has filed for the largest municipal bankruptcy in U.S. history.  Two Americans are enrolled in food stamps for every job our president has created.  A recent Associated Press survey found 4 out of 5 U.S. adults struggle with joblessness, near poverty, or reliance on welfare for at least part of their lives.  California is releasing 9,600 inmates from state prisons to reduce chronic, severe overcrowding and to save money. In a recent report black teen unemployment is at 41.6 percent.  The U.S. debt obligation has now passed $70 trillion dollars.  And finally, Americans living overseas are renouncing their citizenship in record numbers in order to avoid oppressive taxes being imposed on those living outside the U.S.

The American military is collapsing.  Due to budget cuts brought on by sequestration the Navy has decided that it cannot afford to fix the Los Angeles class nuclear submarine Miami and is, therefore, decommissioning it.  The Miami was damaged in May, 2012, by a fire while undergoing repairs in dry dock.  We have aircraft carriers in port because we cannot afford to repair or refuel them.  The Air Force Space Command has announced that it is shutting down its space surveillance system that detects and tracks satellites and space debris by October 1st due to budget cuts resulting from sequestration.  This system has been operating since 1961 and is now being shut down because we can no longer afford the $14 million dollars it costs to operate each year.  So far this year 2 of the 3 intercontinental ballistic missile wings of the American military have miserably failed safety and operational evaluations, calling into serious question our ability to defend our nation in the event of a nuclear strike against us.  However, our military has decided that it could afford to host homosexual drag queens as part of a “diversity day” event at a Los Angeles Air Force Base.  At the same time a 19 year veteran of the Air Force said that he was relieved of his duties after he disagreed with his openly gay commander when she wanted to severely punish an instructor who had expressed religious objections to homosexuality.  Soldiers should not be forced to embrace homosexuality in order to serve our nation.

America is not mentioned in Biblical end-time prophecy.  Perhaps that is due to America’s political collapse, which has already begun.  Our current administration has been rocked by the Benghazi scandal, the IRS scandal, the Fast and Furious scandal, and the Associated Press scandal.  As a result, polls show growing support for impeachment.  America has shown a total lack of leadership in recent world crisis.  The world is on the brink of war over tensions in the Middle East.  While Egypt first erupted in chaos our president went golfing and our Secretary of State took the day off to sail on his private yacht.  Neither lifted a finger or said a word to help.  As Egypt descends further into civil war our president continues to play golf on his vacation in Martha’s Vineyard.  A former aide has revealed this week that President Obama played cards during the bin Laden raid, which he was later so quick to claim the credit for its success.  In an interview with the New York Times, President Obama suggested that you need to be a lawyer in order to be able know what the Constitution actually says.  President Obama held a Ramadan dinner at the White House while the U.S. is at war with radical Islam – the religion that tells every one of its members to kill every single Christian and Jew.  Obama canceled his “summit” meeting with Russian President Putin amid tensions over Russia granting temporary asylum to Edward Snowden.  Apparently our president did not feel that this “summit” meeting was very important.  The approval rating for our president has dropped to 41 percent.

Lawyers and politicians are now considered to be the bottom feeders of our society.  We currently have a large number of politicians who are creating headlines for their sexual misconduct.  Many Congressmen admit to passing laws they have not even read.  What’s even worse, many of our political leaders, including our president, are refusing to enforce the laws they do not like.  Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was literally screaming at members of Congress 2 days after the Benghazi attack for daring to call the tragedy “terrorism.”

America runs off-shore prisons, including but certainly not limited to Guantanamo Bay in Cuba, where inmates have been denied all of the rights guaranteed by our Constitution.  Even worse, America has tortured prisoners in these off-shore prisons and no amount of “spin” can ever change or justify it.  Our integrity has a serious stain upon it that can never be removed and we can no longer claim the moral high ground in judging any other nation.

America is collapsing morally.  Recent polls show that the U.S. marriage rate has dropped to a new low.  Newly released video shows college students signing a petition to legalize abortion after a child is born.  Time magazine is promoting the childless lifestyle as the path to “the good life” for U.S. couples.  More than a dozen leading baseball stars have been given severe fines and suspensions from playing for illegal drug use. And an abortion clinic in Florida is now sending coupons to low income women offering a $50 savings on the cost of an abortion if the abortion is performed on a Sunday.

Political correctness is destroying America.  An elementary school in Tennessee has banned pork so as not to offend Muslims.  The Missouri State Fair has permanently banned a rodeo clown because he wore an Obama mask during a performance.  A high school track team was disqualified because one of its runners made a gesture thanking God as he crossed the finish line.  A teacher in New Jersey was fired for giving a Bible to a student who asked for one.  A Florida police officer was fired because he called Travon Martin “a thug” on Facebook.  In San Francisco authorities are installing “privacy screens” on computers in public libraries so perverts can view pornography without disturbing others.  The Obama administration has banned any government training materials that link radical Islam with terrorism and is purging these references from all of its old materials. And in a new Army training manual U.S. soldiers are being warned to avoid all criticism of pedophiles in order to avoid offending Muslims.  After all, Mohammad did marry his most favorite wife, Aisha, when she was only 6 years old.

Our government continues to conspire against its people.  In my last article I talked about the 2 billion (plus) rounds of ammunition out government is hoarding, how the IRS is now training with M-16 full automatic assault rifles, the reported 2,700 armored personnel carriers it has purchased, and so much more.  However, in the last couple of weeks I did note that the National Ocean and Atmospheric Administration just purchased 72,000 rounds of hollow-point ammunition.  Obama’s federal government is now using automobile license plate readers to track the movement of U.S. motor vehicles.  Even police departments in small towns are now tooling up with elite military hardware.  There is also the ever increasing number of reports in the news of police in America turning into ruthless thugs.  In one case, a man innocently searched the words “pressure cooker” on the internet and another member of his family innocently searched the words “back pack,” only to find 6 armed agents knocking on his door shortly thereafter.  President Obama is set to sign the UN Arms Treaty this month while Congress is in recess.  This will lead to mandatory registration of all firearms in the U.S.

In order to take over the world the anti-Christ will need to know as much as possible about every single individual.  Our government is currently building a mega data base on not only all of its citizens, but all of the people of the world.  You’ve never heard of XKeyscore, but it definitely knows you. The National Security Agency’s top-secret program essentially makes available everything you’ve ever done on the Internet — browsing history, searches, content of your emails, online chats, even your metadata — all at the tap of the keyboard. …XKeyscore is its “widest reaching” system for developing intelligence from the Internet.  PowerPoint training materials obtained by The Guardian show how analysts could use the system to mine sprawling agency databases consisting of a vast reservoir of data. At least 41 billion records were collected and stored in a single 30-day period in 2012, according to the report, which also says XKeyscore collects more than 20 terabytes of information daily, including emails, chats, social media interactions, and even browsing histories—all in real-time.  The world is furious at us after learning of the extent of our spying on them from the Edward Snowden leaks regarding our mass surveillance programs.  Germany canceled a decades long agreement with us to share vital intelligence information.  Recently released documents by Edward Snowden reveal our president lied about our government spying on its citizens.  The National Security Agency has broken privacy rules or overstepped its legal authority thousands of times each year since Congress granted the agency broad new powers in 2008.  The government’s challenge to us through all of this has been that if we are not doing anything wrong we have nothing to hide and, therefore, no reason to object.

If we want to know where we are on God’s end-time timeline we need to look at what is going on in Israel.  The European Union has re-drawn Israel’s borders to the pre-1967 lines and has issued a directive barring all transactions with areas outside those borders.  The UN has declared Israel to be an “occupier.”  The new ruler of Iran, Hassan Rouhani, appears to be as rabidly fanatical about the destruction of Israel as the former leader, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.  As I mentioned a few moment ago, Secretary of State Kerry has declared that “The United States of America views all of the settlements as illegal.  That is the policy of the United States.”  We have touched the “apple of God’s eye” in a way that has surely made God very, very angry with us.  Our own Supreme Court has struck down a law allowing Americans born in Jerusalem to list Israel on their passport as their place of birth.  We have also publicly stated that the U.S. guarantees that Israel’s pre-1967 borders will be the basis for renewed peace talks with the Palestinians.  Israel is very angry with the U.S. for revealing to the world that Israel used its submarines to launch cruise missiles that destroyed Russian made anti-aircraft missiles being delivered to the Syrians for use against Israel.  Obama has leaked this information to the world knowing full-well that it invites retaliation against Israel, thus putting Israel in real danger.  The Temple Mount is routinely being closed off to all Jews to appease Muslims who threaten to riot.  Jews were banned from Temple Mount for most of the month of Ramadan.  What I find most frightening of all are the remarks by Israel’s Deputy Foreign Minister, which seem to indicate that Prime Minister Netanyhu is willing to relinquish up to 86 percent of the West Bank in a land-for-peace deal that has no possibility of ever succeeding, and every possibility of angering God.

The black horse of the Apocalypse looms just over the horizon as world hunger increases.  President Obama just signed an order banning ammonium nitrate fertilizers in the United States.  This will produce a very severe negative impact on the food grown on our nation’s farmlands.  Many parts of the world continue to ban genetically engineered crops.  France has just announced that it will continue its ban on genetically modified corn.  The war in Syria has destroyed half of their wheat crop.  Freakish weather has destroyed a significant portion of the current world’s food supply.

The Bible tells us that there will be an increase in disease and pestilence in the last days.  Anthrax is spreading over the northern region of Tajikistan.  A plague infected squirrel has been found in a California campground.  Honduras has declared an emergency over dengue fever.  Hog producers are battling a virus that has killed piglets by the thousands and has a mortality rate of up to 100 percent.  China’s bird flu has now started passing from human to human.  There is a new mystery virus in the Middle East that is linked to camels.  A boy in Florida has recently been infected with a brain-eating amoeba.  The east coast of the United States is being overrun with a plague of cicadas.  Billions of locust eggs are hatching in the Negev desert.  Israel was hit by a plague of locusts just before Passover (That just has to be prophetic somehow!), and the capital of Bosnia has been hit by a plague of flies.  One-third of the world’s food is destroyed by pestilence.

Advances in technology also point to our being in a time that closely parallels the “Days of Noah,” when the gene pool of mankind and the earth was polluted by angels who rebelled against God and caused God to be so angry that He destroyed the world with a flood.  We have hacked our way past the firewalls of God’s computer and have gained access to the secrets of DNA that contain the codes of life.  Foolishly, we have tampered with these codes producing human-animal hybrids created in laboratories all over the planet.  Scientists have just announced their most recent accomplishments of implanting false memories in mice and producing rabbits that glow in the dark.  Human genes have been implanted in many different animals.  One does not need the gift of prophecy to know that God is not going to tolerate this flagrant disobedience much longer.

Jesus told us that the Great Tribulation will start at the 3 1/3 year point of Daniel’s 70th “week” when the anti-Christ stands in the Temple and declares himself to be god.  Therefore, there will have to be Temple for him to stand in.  The discussions on rebuilding the Temple are starting to get serious despite severe Islamic objections.  The Israeli government is now funding the Temple Mount Institute and other organizations in their efforts to someday very soon rebuild the Temple.

I firmly believe that UFO’s will play a significant role in end-time events and that sinister supernatural forces have at been at work ever since the incident in Roswell in 1947, and even back to the earliest days of civilization, to plant the seeds in the mind of mankind that are necessary to carry out their evil plan.  There has been a huge up-tick in recent UFO sightings and in cattle mutilations, where parts of the cattle are removed with the surgical precision we are scarcely able to duplicate today.  The beings who perform these mutilations go to great lengths to insure they are never seen, and yet they deliberately leave the carcasses in places where they are certain to be found.  Why?

There are other miscellaneous signs at we are at the end.  Water has turned blood red in 9 waterways around the world during the past 2 years.  Massive sink holes continue to appear all over the world.  The latest one opened up a hole 200 feet wide and 90 feet for no apparent reason, and it continues to expand.  Why are these sink holes gobbling up cars, homes, and people?  Is the earth angry with us, or is it trying to tell us something.

Before bringing my long-winded and rambling essay in for a landing I want to point out one last sign that really stands out to me as proof that the moment of the rapture is upon us.  A prophet named Asaph, who lived during the time of King David, had a vision from God and wrote about what it would be like in the last days.  His work became Psalm 83.  Three-and-a-half millennium have passed and the political situation in the Middle East surrounding Israel he predicted has been perfectly fulfilled.  History tells us that the political situation in the Middle East is constantly changing.  This means that the battle which Asaph alluded to must occur very soon or else it will be too late.  Asaph has been dead-on with his accuracy so far, so I am certain that the remainder of his prophecy will be fulfilled in the very, very near future.   Anyone who watches the evening news or reads the prophecy web sites will agree that the conflict described by Asaph has only been able be avoided this long by a supernatural restrainer.  The moment this Restrainer is removed the Middle East is, most certainly, going to explode.  Now, let’s take a look at the first 3 verses of Psalm 83.  We must use the King James version since later versions change a very important word in the third verse:


1 Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God.  2 For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head.  3 They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones.  Psalm 83:1-3.


Wow.  Did you catch what was said in verse 3?  “Thy people” are the Jews, the descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.  “Thy hidden ones” are the ones raptured to heaven.  Psalm 83 speaks of a time just before Israel is attacked by the nations around us.  The rapture of the Church will occur before the battle of Psalm 83 takes place.

In Revelation 3:3 Jesus commanded us to watch for His return.  He also warned us that if we do not watch He will come upon us as unexpectedly as a thief in the night and if we do not watch we will not know the day or hour of His return.  Paul told the Thessalonians in his first letter to them to watch for the Lord’s return in the clouds, when the dead in Christ will rise first when the trumpet blows.  The bulk of chapter 24 of the Book of Matthew deals with Jesus answer when asked what the signs of his return will be.  Chapter 25 contains the parable of the 10 virgins and the importance of watching and being prepared for His return.  Over the centuries there has been much debate as to whether or not we can know the day or hour, but we can certainly know the season.  We have that on the highest authority. 

Never before in history has there been such an incredible number of signs that something big is about to happen, especially when all of these signs are occurring simultaneously.  Many in the unbelieving world react with anger whenever the rapture is mentioned because it is becoming increasingly impossible to deny.  All of humanity can sense it.  Something really, really big is about to happen and it is going to happen really, really soon.  Stockpiling water, food, medicine, and ammunition is not the answer.  The answer lays in your own heart and where you stand with God.
