Awaken Bible Prophecy Update 6-8-22: Timing of Ezekiel’s War

Confusion seems to reign regarding the timing of Ezekiel’s War, which we know well as the War of Gog of Magog, as the prophet described in Ezekiel 38-39.  There are three primary periods in which Bible teachers slot this critical conflict.  They are:

  1. Prior to the Tribulation
  2. Within the 7-year Tribulation period
  3. At the conclusion of the Millennium

I am very much wedded to the first timing, i.e. prior to the Tribulation.  My reasons are exceedingly Scriptural and, I believe are based on simple logic.  The other two suggestions for this war cannot work per the Biblical text.  What we must do is apply good hermeneutics to the issue, i.e. good Biblical interpretation.  More than that, we need to allow the text to reveal itself and not interject our biases.  This is called exegesis.  When someone determines beforehand what he believes about a Bible passage and reads that prejudice into the account, this process is called eisegesis and is ripe with error.

Given the continuing chaos that conflicts the Middle East with the various ongoing pressures that face Israel – from the unending push to implement a two-state solution, to the terrorist factions at Israel’s doorstep with their only desire being to annihilate her, to the triumvirate of state actors sitting at Israel’s northern border across the Golan Heights in Syria, it won’t be long before God withdraws His restraining hand and allows this war to begin.

This Update is a little longer today, so I hope you’ll stick with me to get the full picture of this study.  First we’ll pray and read a Scripture.





Isaiah 43:15

“I am the Lord, your Holy One,

The Creator of Israel, your King.”


Exodus 15:11

“Who is like You among the gods, O Lord?

Who is like You, majestic in holiness,

Awesome in praises, working wonders?


Timing of Ezekiel’s War



  • This is a war that the vast majority of Bible teachers and students believe has not yet occurred in history
  • There has never been a time when any events of this magnitude as described in Ezekiel have erupted in Israel
  • Even those who look at the Bible symbolically or allegorically must confess that anything they could make up in their imaginations concerning this war having taken place in some way would be an absolute stretch
  • That being the case, we must consider this conflict as a literal future event that will have significant ramifications for Israel and the world
  • In fact, because of how momentous this war is with its aftereffects, people who believe in anything but a pre-Tribulation Rapture have to go to great lengths to figure out how this will play out in times to come
  • In that respect, let’s first consider timings #2 and #3 before we get to #1, which I think is ironclad



#2 – Ezekiel’s War within the 7-year Tribulation period

  • The idea behind this timing of the war is that the Rapture occurs and the 7-year Tribulation officially begins at some point following that
  • I guess some people could also look at the Tribulation period as starting but with no Rapture having occurred
  • However, if that’s the case, it makes no Biblical or logical sense whatsoever
  • I’ve explored that perspective numerous times and won’t comment further regarding it in this discussion
  • A pre-Tribulation Rapture is the only Biblical AND logical approach to how these end-times will play out
  • The official start date of the Tribulation – note when I say the “official” start date, as that will be quite pertinent later in our discussion
  • So, the official start date of the Tribulation is predicated on the covenant agreement that Antichrist confirms between Israel and another entity noted as “the many”
  • The determination for this covenant timing comes from Daniel 9:27:


“And he shall make a strong covenant with many for one week, and for half of the week he shall put an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall come one who makes desolate, until the decreed end is poured out on the desolator.”


  • The person described as “he” in this verse is Antichrist
  • One week is Biblical terminology for a week of years, i.e. 7 years
  • Half the week denotes 3 1/2 years – which BTW means that the Tribulation is a full 7 years – not just 3 1/2 years as some people try to make it
  • At that specific midpoint, Antichrist will halt all religious services and offerings in the newly constructed 3rd (Tribulation) Temple by desecrating it in some abominable way when he declares himself as God
  • This means, of course, that sometime between now and then this 3rd temple will be built
  • Many people believe that the covenant agreement itself is what paves the way for the temple to be built
  • I have a different perspective on that which I’ll articulate when I explore option #1 of our timing discussion
  • Per Daniel 9:27, after desecrating the temple, Antichrist will continue in his evil ways until God makes an end of him


  • In this thinking, presumably Ezekiel’s War becomes a part of the wars noted by the opening of the 2nd Seal Judgment beginning once the official Tribulation period has begun
  • It’s easy to see how people could believe this, but it creates problems that are antithetical to the Biblical text
  • Let’s consider 2 such passages
  • First is Ezekiel 38:10-11:


“Thus says the Lord God: On that day, thoughts will come into your mind, and you will devise an evil scheme and say, ‘I will go up against the land of unwalled villages. I will fall upon the quiet people who dwell securely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having no bars or gates,’


  • The key here is the prophecy of unwalled villages with the people of Israel dwelling securely with no walls, bars, or gates
  • A couple other contextual verses also note that Israel dwells in safety at this point, namely Ezekiel 38:8,18
  • This is problematic because it certainly doesn’t describe Israel today
  • I love Amir Tsarfati, but he either tends to overlook these verses or he says that Israel currently meets this description
  • Amir does not hold to Ezekiel’s war occurring within the Tribulation period, but his perspective is effectively the same in this instance as those who do place the war here
  • Israel must be in a place where she considers herself safe and literally immune to external threats
  • Looking through this lens, we have to believe that Israel doesn’t have the dangers of Hezbollah on the north in Lebanon or Hamas in Gaza, both of which are hindered from more attacks than they already commit BECAUSE of exceedingly long and high walls preventing them from further atrocities against Israel
  • The fact of the existence of the Islamic entities of Hezbollah and Hamas ready to strike whenever it pleases them creates huge problems in accurately fulfilling this aspect of the prophecy
  • Are we to believe that somehow Antichrist in his covenant negotiations puts a lid on these hostile entities to such an extent that Israel considers herself dwelling safely and securely?
  • For that to happen, Antichrist would have to convince Israel that Islam is trustworthy and will uphold its end of the bargain
  • Israel would have to forget about Islam’s absolute hatred of her and ignore Hamas’s charter which specifically states that part of the reason for this terrorist group’s existence is to completely obliterate Israel
  • In addition, Israel would have to totally disregard the Islamic doctrine of taqiyya
  • Taqiyya declares that Muslims can lie to their hearts’ content when in the interests of Islam
  • Their god Allah has no problems with Muslims lying in this regard
  • Why wouldn’t the Muslims lie if they thought they’d gain the upper hand with Israel?
  • The people of Israel may have a spiritual veil over their eyes that prevents their accepting Jesus Christ as the true Messiah, but they aren’t stupid
  • They’ve been dealing with Islam and its loathing toward them for much too long
  • I can’t imagine their agreeing to such a covenant, given the charter of these enemies being that they are dedicated to the total elimination of Israel and their propensity to lie for Islamic gain
  • A treaty without military victory on Israel’s part will not stay the hand of these adversaries
  • Because of this, it’s extremely unlikely that Israel suddenly believes herself to be dwelling in security immediately following the covenant agreement with the subsequent action of tearing down all walls, bars, and gates – thus no longer fearing an attack from her Islamic enemies


  • Now let’s consider a really important verse that counters this timing narrative of Ezekiel’s War taking place inside the 7-year Tribulation
  • It is Ezekiel 39:9-11:


“Then those who dwell in the cities of Israel will go out and make fires of the weapons and burn them, shields and bucklers, bow and arrows, clubs and spears; and they will make fires of them for seven years, so that they will not need to take wood out of the field or cut down any out of the forests, for they will make their fires of the weapons. They will seize the spoil of those who despoiled them, and plunder those who plundered them, declares the Lord God.


  • Think about this
  • Antichrist desecrates the newly built temple after 3 1/2 years into the 7-year treaty
  • Once he decrees that he is God, and that Israel and all the world must worship him, the Jews realize they have a problem
  • Not only does Antichrist prove through this declaration that he is not their Messiah, he begins rabidly persecuting the Jews in Israel
  • This is why Jesus spoke in Matthew 24:15-16 these words:


“So when you see the abomination of desolation spoken of by the prophet Daniel, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand), then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.”


  • Those who will heed the Lord’s warning will need to at least have some sense as to who He is, i.e. having read or heard this New Testament passage
  • There will certainly be Christians among them, but likely unsaved Jews as well who understand their peril
  • These Jews who are aware in some sense flee to the stronghold of Petra in Jordan
  • Regardless of who runs for the hills, so to speak, the climate in Jerusalem and Israel will change dramatically
  • However normal life might have been in the first 3 1/2 years after the treaty, that ends in an instant
  • The Jews are immediately prey to Antichrist and his minions – to be hunted down and killed
  • The process of gathering the weapons of war from the Ezekiel conflict halts right then
  • Whenever the war might have happened in this timing scenario, you have to believe that the clean-up continues as if nothing momentous just occurred
  • How would it be possible for the complete 7-year clean-up to run the entire period prophesied when Jews are scattered and fleeing for their lives at the 3 1/2 year mark?
  • What do you think the odds are of that?
  • How about zero?
  • The fact of Antichrist’s actions completely negates the potential for the fulfillment of this very specific aspect of the prophecy
  • It’s an absolute non-starter thinking that Ezekiel’s War can occur within the Tribulation


#3 – Ezekiel’s War at the conclusion of the Millennium

  • Where in the world does this idea come from?
  • People get this timing when they read Revelation 20:7-8:


And when the thousand years are ended, Satan will be released from his prison and will come out to deceive the nations that are at the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them for battle; their number is like the sand of the sea.


  • Because this reference to Gog and Magog occurs at the end of the 1,000 years of Millennial peace, it is thought that Ezekiel’s prophecy pertains to this period
  • One argument people who support this use is that Israel is surely dwelling in peace and security
  • After all, Christ has been on the throne in Jerusalem for all this time and nothing – but nothing – can or would disrupt the peace of His reign
  • Of course they would have no walls, bars, or gates during this period
  • We know that Satan has spent the last 10 centuries stewing in the Abyss waiting for his chance at revenge
  • We also know that both man’s freewill and his sin nature continue unabated
  • Mortal men – i.e. those people remaining in human, non-glorified bodies – still have the ability to choose
  • Their forebears who remained alive and entered the Millennium period ALL were saved and had chosen to follow Jesus to the end of the Tribulation
  • However, the generations to follow had the ability to choose salvation through Jesus or to rebel and follow their own sin nature
  • These verses in Revelation indicate that untold millions decide for this option
  • When Satan is released, these are the people he goes after
  • Of course, Satan has help
  • He’s not omnipresent
  • Although the Bible doesn’t specifically tell us this, logic indicates that the demonic realm is opened when Satan is freed
  • Demons and fallen angels will no doubt be at his beck and call to go throughout the world to deceive and gather mankind for this final encounter against God
  • The question then becomes: Does it work Biblically for Ezekiel’s War to occur at the very end of the Millennium?
  • Logistically, once again, the answer in no
  • The same verses of Ezekiel 39:9-11 discussed earlier also apply to this timing option
  • Again, they say that Israel will spend 7 years cleaning up after this war
  • Say what?
  • Revelation at this point describes a chronological series of events
  • Sinful humanity gathers on the plains of Armageddon
  • God sends down fire and everyone dies
  • Satan is tossed into the Lake of Fire to join Antichrist and the False Prophet
  • Presumably all the demonic entities roaming the earth likewise are sent to this place of torment forever
  • Remember, hell was devised for Satan and his angels
  • At the Great White Throne Judgment at the second resurrection of all the dead throughout history, all people from all ages are judged
  • All are cast into the Lake of Fire whose names are not written in the Book of Life
  • THEN, God creates a new heaven and new earth, destroying the old one with fire
  • And it’s this which creates a massive problem for this timing option
  • Nowhere in this chronology does it provide a period whereby Israel will conduct a 7-year clean-up of the land
  • Now let’s consider one more really important verse that also counters this timing narrative – that being Ezekiel 39:12-15:


For seven months the house of Israel will be burying them, in order to cleanse the land. All the people of the land will bury them, and it will bring them renown on the day that I show my glory, declares the Lord God. They will set apart men to travel through the land regularly and bury those travelers remaining on the face of the land, so as to cleanse it. At the end of seven months they will make their search. And when these travel through the land and anyone sees a human bone, then he shall set up a sign by it, till the buriers have buried it in the Valley of Hamon-gog.


  • When does this possibly take place when the Gog-Magog War is slotted at the end of the Millennium?
  • What’s the point of this removal of the human remains from the war when God will be immediately cleansing the entire earth from its sin since time immemorial through the fire which results in the new heaven and new earth?
  • In fact, the description in Ezekiel 39:11 also becomes highly problematic:


“On that day I will give to Gog a place for burial in Israel, the Valley of the Travelers, east of the sea. It will block the travelers, for there Gog and all his multitude will be buried. It will be called the Valley of Hamon-gog.


  • If the earth is destroyed and through that sin and its consequences totally eradicated from earth, there won’t be any such valley for burial required
  • The whole earth is made new
  • Nothing remains of our sin nature
  • The earth is cleansed, with death and its consequences gone-gone-gone
  • The reference to Gog and Magog in Revelation is one of a spiritual nature
  • The rebellious heart of sinful man continues beating as such during the Millennium
  • What causes Ezekiel’s war to occur earlier as we’ll see in a moment, is exactly the same spiritual heart condition that is present at the end of the 1,000 years, despite Jesus having been present on the earth
  • Even with Him on the throne and accessible to all mankind, it’s not enough
  • Man will do what man will do until the very end when everything is completely made new


#1 – Ezekiel’s War prior to the Tribulation

  • Now we come to the only possible option for the timing of this war
  • The two passages noted regarding the 7-year clean-up of Israel’s land from the debris of war and the 7-month clean-up of human remains noted in Ezekiel 39:9-11, 12-15 both work in a pre-Tribulation war scenario
  • What is necessary is for there to be a gap period between the Rapture of the church and the official beginning of the Tribulation
  • More Bible teachers have come around to this thinking in recent years
  • It used to be that many thought the Rapture would occur and the Tribulation began immediately
  • This approach has many problems, not least of which is that in the natural realm of this earth, it takes time for events to develop
  • Again looking at this logically, does it make sense for the 1st Seal to be broken, Antichrist to be revealed, and then for him to instantly – on the same day as the Rapture – coordinate and oversee the covenant agreement?
  • If there is a gap following the Rapture and the covenant, events in the natural realm can play out much more reasonably
  • So, the question is: How much of a gap?
  • I believe the gap between the Rapture and the official beginning of the Tribulation – as noted by the covenant treaty – must be at least 3 1/2 years
  • Why?
  • It goes back to the 7-year clean-up of Israel that Scripture specifies following the war
  • Remember, once the midpoint of the Tribulation occurs with Antichrist declaring himself God in the temple, and his immediate persecution of the Jews, all normal and religious activities halt in Israel as the people flee – either to Petra or elsewhere to keep from being killed
  • This means that Ezekiel’s war must begin at least 3 1/2 years prior to the Tribulation start in order to conclude by the midpoint at 3 1/2 years into this period
  • Likewise, the 7-month clean-up of human remains easily slotted into the 3 1/2 year period following the war but before the Tribulation officially begins
  • Now, what about Israel dwelling in safety and security without walls, bars, and gates?
  • If Israel doesn’t meet that criteria today – just as it truly wouldn’t be if Ezekiel’s war were to take place within the Tribulation period – what could change this dynamic?
  • I believe that Bill Salus has called it correctly in his groundbreaking book Psalm 83 – The Missing Prophecy Revealed
  • As Bill details in his book, there must be a Psalm 83 War prior to Ezekiel that sets the appropriate conditions on the ground for Gog-Magog to occur
  • Many Bible scholars have overlooked Psalm 83 for many years, thinking that it is strictly an imprecatory psalm
  • However, its author Asaph was called a prophet in 2 Chronicles 29:30:


And Hezekiah the king and the officials commanded the Levites to sing praises to the Lord with the words of David and of Asaph the seer. And they sang praises with gladness, and they bowed down and worshiped.


  • He was a seer – a prophet – thus not just a psalmist
  • Jesus confirmed this in Matthew 13:35 by pointing to Psalm 78 written by Asaph:


This was to fulfill what was spoken by the prophet:

“I will open my mouth in parables;
I will utter what has been hidden since the foundation of the world.”


  • Now, it is thought by many that the events noted in Psalm 83 occurred in the aftermath of Israel becoming a nation on May 14, 1948
  • There were a couple more wars instigated by Israel’s neighbors in 1956, 1967, and 1973 which involved many of the same hostile entities described in Psalm 83
  • Somewhere among these conflicts, various Bible teachers see the Psalm 83 War occurring
  • However, we know that Bible prophecy is a tricky business at times
  • Some prophetic descriptions apply both sooner and later
  • Depending on which end of the telescope we look through, we’ll see the near-term events or the long-term events
  • Often the prophets had no indication if that there were separate instances of time being foretold in what they predicted
  • They often mashed together various events to seem as one
  • This is even true with how Jesus spoke in Matthew 24
  • There are references to both the Rapture and His 2nd Coming within that discourse
  • There are some number of Bible teachers who don’t see the Rapture in what Jesus describes, but it’s there very clearly in Matthew 24:36-44


“But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only. For as were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark, and they were unaware until the flood came and swept them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. Then two men will be in the field; one will be taken and one left. Two women will be grinding at the mill; one will be taken and one left. Therefore, stay awake, for you do not know on what day your Lord is coming. But know this, that if the master of the house had known in what part of the night the thief was coming, he would have stayed awake and would not have let his house be broken into. Therefore you also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.


  • Jesus is speaking not just about Israel here but about the church as well which will be gathered to Him
  • As a result of how prophecies may be relevant short- AND long-term, if we consider Psalm 83 as one of these, what do we get?
  • Psalm 83:2-5 tells us of those who plot Israel’s destruction:


For behold, your enemies make an uproar;
those who hate you have raised their heads.
They lay crafty plans against your people;
they consult together against your treasured ones.
They say, “Come, let us wipe them out as a nation;
let the name of Israel be remembered no more!”
For they conspire with one accord;
against you they make a covenant—


  • This has certainly been the case since that astounding prophecy of Isaiah 66:8 whereby Israel became a nation in a single day on May 14, 1948:


Who has heard such a thing?
Who has seen such things?
Shall a land be born in one day?
Shall a nation be brought forth in one moment?
For as soon as Zion was in labor
she brought forth her children.


  • Critical in this to understand is that because this was of God, nothing could prevent it
  • The Muslim nations surrounding Israel immediately tried to wipe out this upstart nation, and attempted multiple times afterward – all with no success
  • Does that mean that because they’ve tried in the past that Israel’s neighbors won’t attempt it again?
  • I don’t think so
  • That’s why the prophecy of Psalm 83 is pertinent today
  • Those enemies remain
  • They are as hostile now as in the past
  • Something must happen because they are not satisfied with Israel’s continued existence
  • Note also that the purpose of the Psalm 83 coalition is to eliminate Israel, whereas the Ezekiel confederacy intends to take plunder as described in Ezekiel 38:13:


Sheba and Dedan and the merchants of Tarshish and all its leaders will say to you, ‘Have you come to seize spoil? Have you assembled your hosts to carry off plunder, to carry away silver and gold, to take away livestock and goods, to seize great spoil?’


  • These are two very different objectives
  • Let’s also consider that none of the nations listed in Psalm 83 appear as hostile entities in Ezekiel 38-39
  • Are we to believe that when Russia, Iran, and Turkey, plus other confederate nations, swoop down on Israel in the Gog-Magog War that neither Hezbollah nor Hamas join in the festivities?
  • Is that a reasonable assumption?
  • I don’t think so
  • In fact, in Ezekiel’s War NONE of any neighboring nations to Israel surrounding her and touching her borders are shown as enemy combatants
  • Why wouldn’t at least some of them join the party in determining to invade Israel in that conflict?
  • I propose it’s because they cannot
  • Psalm 83 indicates that the coalition of nations attacking Israel to eliminate her end up as Psalm 83:13-18 declares:


O my God, make them like whirling dust,
like chaff before the wind.
As fire consumes the forest,
as the flame sets the mountains ablaze,
so may you pursue them with your tempest
and terrify them with your hurricane!
Fill their faces with shame,
that they may seek your name, O Lord.
Let them be put to shame and dismayed forever;
let them perish in disgrace,
that they may know that you alone,
whose name is the Lord,
are the Most High over all the earth.


  • Instead of annihilating Israel by pushing her into the sea, these attacking nations are swept away as by a hurricane so that they are no more
  • If that’s the case, what happens to Israel’s borders?
  • What happens to the walls, bars, and gates?
  • None of Israel’s surrounding enemies exist anymore as an existential threat
  • No longer does Israel need to maintain a Gaza wall because there is no more Hamas
  • The same is true for Hezbollah in Lebanon and even her adversaries in Jordan or Egypt
  • What this overwhelming victory accomplishes is to actually extend Israel’s borders, as has always been the case with a nation defeating its foes
  • Even more than that, the Muslim god Allah of these nations has been shown to be feckless
  • Islam as an immediate threat on all sides of Israel literally disappears
  • It is this war that creates the condition of safety and security that is foretold in Ezekiel 38, thus fulfilling that specific aspect of the prophecy and paving the way for Gog-Magog to take place


  • What else occurs as a result of a Psalm 83 War that solidifies the requirement for it to occur prior to Ezekiel?


  • There’s a very important detail which Ezekiel 39:11 specifies:


“On that day I will give to Gog a place for burial in Israel, the Valley of the Travelers, east of the sea. It will block the travelers, for there Gog and all his multitude will be buried. It will be called the Valley of Hamon-gog.


  • Why is this important?
  • Because the prophecy speaks of this place for burial EAST of the sea
  • It can’t be the Mediterranean because that would spoil Israel’s heartland
  • It can’t be the Sea of Galilee because that area includes the Golan, which is both a rich agricultural region and which contains untapped petroleum reserves
  • Burying there would totally negate using that land productively
  • The only other sea to consider is the Dead Sea, but there’s a problem today
  • The east side of the Dead Sea is owned by Jordan
  • Would Jordan allow Israel to bury her dead there after the Gog-Magog War?
  • Unlikely
  • However, under a Psalm 83 scenario, Israel expands her territory to encompass this area when Jordan is defeated
  • Prevailing winds blow west to east and no taint from the dead comes within Israel’s heartland


  • Two more prophetic aspects arise when we place Ezekiel’s War before the Tribulation in the gap after the Rapture
  • The first arises from Ezekiel 39:6 which says:


I will send fire on Magog and on those who dwell securely in the coastlands, and they shall know that I am the Lord.


  • At the conclusion of Ezekiel’s War, God expands the knowledge of His power and might far beyond the borders of Israel
  • It is highly likely given this description that God effectively destroys the nation known as Magog
  • Not only are all of Israel’s invading armies destroyed on the mountains of the Golan Heights, but God also sends devastating fire upon Magog AND – presumably – all the other cooperating nations which attacked Israel as part of the coalition
  • Thus, Russia is probably ruined by this supernatural rain of annihilation, but also Iran, Turkey, and the other nations that joined in the assault
  • If that’s the case, what does this do to Islam?
  • Psalm 83 already wiped out all Muslim hostility surrounding Israel
  • Ezekiel completes the task and leaves no more Islam
  • What does that mean?
  • For one, the idea of a Muslim Antichrist goes away as a non-starter
  • More importantly, it changes the dynamic of who might be coming to the table for the covenant agreement confirmed by Antichrist that begins the Tribulation
  • Consider as well, either the Psalm 83 or Ezekiel wars could result in the destruction of the Dome of the Rock and the Al-Aqsa Mosque
  • These factors could very well mean that nothing stands in Israel’s way to build her 3rd temple:
    • No Islam – no existing Muslim structures
  • The building of the temple might not even be a negotiating point in the covenant treaty
  • If Islam isn’t involved in this agreement, who is?
  • I’ve dealt with this previously, but – in brief – I believe, along with Bill Salus and other Bible teachers, that “the many” who are participants at the negotiating table are actually representatives of the harlot Catholic church, which has grown, demonically prospered, and begun persecuting all who don’t submit to the tenets of the Romanish faith with its wide-open arms to all religions except Christians and Jews
  • In my Kindle Vella story titled Tribulation Rising, I suggest one possible reason why Israel comes to the negotiating table with the Vatican and Antichrist
  • That story is linked below on the Rumble page


  • The second thing which develops instantaneously as a result of Ezekiel’s War is how both Israel and the rest of the world view God
  • The power and might of the Lord are gloriously on display in this overwhelming victory for Israel and defeat for all opposing forces
  • The outcome is described in Ezekiel 38:23 and Ezekiel 39:7:


So I will show my greatness and my holiness and make myself known in the eyes of many nations. Then they will know that I am the Lord.


“And my holy name I will make known in the midst of my people Israel, and I will not let my holy name be profaned anymore. And the nations shall know that I am the Lord, the Holy One in Israel.


  • The nations of the world see what God has done and fear Him
  • This fact, along with Psalm 83’s outcome, demonstrate that Israel is protected by God and that Allah is no more
  • As Bill Salus says through these events, “Allah loses his Akbar”
  • It may be these very things that prevent the Catholic church from fully exercising its authority in the world at that time
  • For many years, the Vatican has encroached upon Jerusalem with its holy shrines and claims of sovereignty
  • These victories may cause the Vatican to negotiate for what it perceives as its rights rather than try to take them by force
  • This could result in the 7-year peace agreement


  • Finally, with God showing up as He does to claim Israel as His own, many Jews will certainly abandon their secular ways and turn to Yahweh
  • It won’t be just the observant Jews of today, but it will include many non-religious Jews who will realize they have been far from God
  • He is real and is One to be reckoned with
  • As the verse says, they will no longer profane the Holy One of Israel
  • Given that these wars pave the way for the new temple, many in Israel will worship there and take part in the sacrificial offerings
  • Of course, this will still be the Old Testament system with all its legalities, but many will obey both in fear and joy
  • The problem which remains, though, is that Israel as a whole will continue to despise Jesus Christ as Messiah
  • Antichrist will have raised his stature in Israel through brokering the covenant agreement, perhaps even being seen as Messiah in Israel’s eyes
  • For the first 3 1/2 years, all is well with this arrangement
  • But, it breaks down terribly at the midpoint of the Tribulation when Antichrist declares himself as god
  • Then Israel as a whole realizes her mistake
  • Those who have listened to the Two Witnesses – likely Moses and Elijah – or to any of the 144,000 Jewish evangelists – they will flee to safety in Petra
  • The rest of Israel will be persecuted and overall, 2/3 of the people will perish as Zechariah 13:8-9 declares:


In the whole land, declares the Lord,
two thirds shall be cut off and perish,
and one third shall be left alive.
And I will put this third into the fire,
and refine them as one refines silver,
and test them as gold is tested.
They will call upon my name,
and I will answer them.
I will say, ‘They are my people’;
and they will say, ‘The Lord is my God.’”


  • In summary, the proper placement of Ezekiel’s war – along with seeing the necessity for a Psalm 83 War – sets the stage for all that is yet to come in the land of Israel and with her people


  • The question then becomes: Why should we as Christians this side of the Rapture care?
  • Israel is God’s Chosen People
  • In God’s eyes, the land is His
  • It is beautiful and glorious
  • He is the Holy One of Israel
  • He always has been and always will be
  • Ultimately Jesus will sit on His throne in Jerusalem
  • God has a marvelous plan for Israel’s future just as He has for Gentile believers outside of Israel
  • Because God loves Israel, so should we
  • There are those within Christian ranks – presumably born-again – who seem to hate Israel
  • Never forget Genesis 12:3 in which God declares:


I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse, and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”


  • It’s not a good idea to disdain Israel and not be concerned with her welfare
  • Taking that approach brings down the curse of God upon people’s heads who think that way
  • What we want to do as faithful and obedient believers in Christ Jesus is to pray for the peace of Jerusalem just as Scripture commands us
  • That peace will only come following the Tribulation for the 1000 years of the Millennium
  • Aren’t you eager for this coming time of glory?
  • I certainly am!
  • The sooner Israel achieves this peace, the sooner we’re there enjoying it as well


Bonus Awaken Bible Prophecy Update John Chau – Going at Any Cost


I want to do something a little different.  We can call this a bonus offering for the week to encourage you in your walk with Christ.  In the June 2022 issue of the Voice of the Martyrs Newsletter, there is an article titled Going at Any Cost about a young missionary by the name of John Chau.  As I read the account of John’s life and death as a martyr for Jesus, it affected me greatly, and I wanted to share it with you who may not have seen this issue of VOM’s newsletter.

Let me start out before reading with a quote by Dietrich Bonhoeffer.  He once asked the following:

“Who stands fast? Only the man whose final standard is not his reason, his principles, his conscience, his freedom, or his virtue, but who is ready to sacrifice all this when he is called to obedient and responsible action in faith and in exclusive allegiance to God – the responsible man, who tries to make his whole life an answer to the question and call of God. Where are these responsible people?”



How can we consider John Chau’s sacrifice in light of eternity?  Here is what Revelation 14:6 says:

Then I saw another angel flying directly overhead, with an eternal gospel to proclaim to those who dwell on earth, to every nation and tribe and language and people.

Think about this and what John Chau did.  Let’s suppose that between now when this angel flies throughout the entire world proclaiming the Gospel during the Tribulation, that no one else reaches the hostile tribesmen on North Sentinel Island.  Even with all the plagues that God has rained down upon the earth by this time, let’s also suppose that the North Sentinelese people don’t put it together despite the many judgments they’ve endured.  They don’t give glory to the God of all creation.

However, when the angel speaks the Gospel and declares the Name of Jesus Christ, what if the tribesmen remember this young man and the Name that he spoke before he died?  John approached these people upon the beach, his arms wide open, a smile on his face, and said nothing else but Jesus’ Name, and that Jesus loves them.  Because of the hearts of stone within this people group, they did what they’ve always done: they killed this innocent man in cold blood.

When the angel flies overhead, conviction overwhelms them.  They know that John came in the Name of Jesus, and they are guilty of murder.  They killed the one who was bringing them the Good News of eternal life in God’s Kingdom.  Because John gave it all to reach these people, when the voice of the angel penetrates deeply into their souls, they know the truth of Jesus Christ.  They know that this one man sacrificed for them just as Jesus died for all of us.

The North Sentinelese surrender their hearts, humbly bowing to their Savior – all because John Chau was obedient to Christ to the very end.

Soli Deo Gloria

Deepest Darkness to Blinding Brilliance

It’s easy for us to forget the astounding grace of God.  We who live in America and are part of western civilization have been so blessed and – frankly – have lives that are generally free from true hardship, that we take for granted all that God has given us.  What amazes me is that despite this, our culture is growing exceedingly dark because we’ve turned from God’s generous mercy.  In doing this, we create our own sufferings.

God’s template for us is simple: Trust in and obey Him.  When we do this, He blesses us because He loves to give good gifts to those who become His beloved children.  When we reject the sacrificial gift of Jesus Christ and the salvation He brings, we open up a whole can of serpents.

Rather than living lives that cause God’s face to shine upon us and which curry God’s favor, more and more people turn away because they want to do life their way.  Of course, this isn’t new.  It began in the Garden and carries to this very day.  The extent of our rebellion varies, but between the sin in our souls, the lure of the world, and the thrusting knife of Satan who wishes to twist our loyalties and priorities toward his, many people think it’s a good idea to build their own tower of Babel in the hope of controlling their individual destinies.

This is why we see the fulfillment of 2 Timothy 3:1-9 all around us:

But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, slanderers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, holding to a form of godliness although they have denied its power; avoid such people as these. For among them are those who slip into households and captivate weak women weighed down with sins, led on by various impulses, always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so these men also oppose the truth, men of depraved mind, worthless in regard to the faith. But they will not make further progress; for their foolishness will be obvious to all, just as was that also of Jannes and Jambres.

Yet, knowing this is the human condition, these last days sins are simply a continuation of those which have been with us since the beginning.  They can lead to extremely dark places.  It’s not hard to see someone in the grip of these nineteen iniquities.  Cain certainly qualifies with the murder of his brother Abel.  Let’s pick a couple of these characteristics with which to label him: ungrateful, without self-control, brutal, holding to a form of godliness.  There are others that surely led to his rash act which had such extreme consequences.  Do you think based on the believing loyalty God required in Old Testament times, that Cain made it to heaven?  Only if he truly repented, which I don’t know that we see in the Biblical text.

Another intriguing situation centers upon the two thieves crucified alongside Jesus.  The text indicates that initially both cursed Him.  But then, something happened to the one.

John MacArthur in his Study Bible Notes for Mark’s Gospel indicates that these men probably had committed worse crimes than thievery.  Theft wasn’t a capital punishment per the Roman laws.  It’s likely that these two may have been fellow murderers along with Barabbas.  Perhaps if things had turned out differently, Barabbas would have been one of the three crucified on Calvary that day with Jesus going free.  That wasn’t God’s plan, so Jesus was placed between these two desperately wicked men.  Initially they showed their true colors in their curses.

What happened?  What changed for the one?  Close to death, the one man’s sins flooded over him.  From our above list he could have exhibited the following: arrogant, disobedient to parents, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable, conceited, led on by various impulses.  Take your pick.  He saw the extent of his evil life.  The Holy Spirit convicted him of his eternal destiny.  In an act that only God could do, this man acknowledged his transgressions, believed in Jesus as the Son of God, and called out to Him for salvation.  In His great mercy, the Lord granted this murderous thief what only He could.  God gave him paradise rather than hell.  He was transported immediately from the deepest darkness of Satan’s pit of despair to blinding brilliance in the presence of God.  In an act of supreme irony, this man’s crucifixion – the worst thing that ever happened to him – turned out to be the most wonderful.  How’s that for what God can do?

He didn’t need to go through twelve steps for reconciliation.  He didn’t have to be baptized.  All he did was repent, ask for God’s mercy, place his confidence in Christ, and it was granted.

Many people today have a past that is every bit as despicable as this man on the cross. Some have partaken of Satan’s blood and caroused with demons.  It doesn’t matter.  If such a person is truly repentant and asks God for the return of his soul, He will grant it.  The question we have to ask is: How might that which is horrible in our life benefit us just like the one who hung there beside Jesus?

What’s incredibly important for a person like this – and really for every single one of us regardless of our past – is that upon receiving God’s grace in our lives, we become obedient to His commands.  It is only through our obeying what the Lord tells us to do that we demonstrate our true conversion.  When we stop rebelling, and follow hard after God, what a difference that makes!  It opens up the pathways for Him to bless us.  Do you think God will pour out His favor and blessings upon the disobedient?  Yes, rain falls on the just and unjust, but God’s favor is something else entirely.

When we trust in Him, it likely causes a big smile to crease God’s face.  He can point to us and say, “That’s My child!”  Just like with Job, when we show our believing loyalty through obeying Him, it doesn’t matter what comes our way, God will see us through it.  More than that, we will realize untold blessings.  They may not be of the physical variety that God blessed Job with in the second half of his life – I’m not talking about prosperity as it’s been corrupted these days.  No, we have the Lord’s promise of eternal glory in His presence.  Before then, while we’re still here in this life, He may pour out wealth of some kind upon us or the healing of our infirmities, but that isn’t at all the objective.  Our eyes should be upon Jesus.  When they are, He will do what He’ll do for us in this natural realm.  But this isn’t our home.  Who cares about riches that corrupt and moths destroy, or even this physical body?

What should be our prayer?  Lord, Thy will be done!

What an amazing result that brings.

Awaken Bible Prophecy Update 6-1-22: The Fourth Turning Collapse

It’s time once more to explore where we are in the context of the Fourth Turning.  If that term isn’t familiar to you, it comes from a 1997 book written by secular authors William Strauss and Neil Howe titled The Fourth Turning – What the Cycles of History Tell Us About America’s Rendezvous with Destiny. The authors in this book examined how history effectively repeats itself in predictable cycles.  What’s fascinating to me is how the current cycle – the Fourth Turning that we’re currently in the middle of – appears to be perfectly lining up with the objectives of the WEF’s Great Reset, the UN’s Agenda 2030, and the upcoming Biblical Tribulation outlined in the book of Revelation.

A contributing prediction in 2014 by Deagle – a military contractor – and recently updated April 2022 with current world population numbers, presents a startling estimate of where the depopulation agenda must take us to reach the end result of the 1st Georgia Guidestone commandment.  This principle states:

Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature

For those not attuned to Bible prophecy, what I’ll discuss today will probably seem so far “out there” that it’s truly the stuff of conspiracy theory nightmares.  However, we know that there are no longer conspiracy theories, just conspiracy realities.  More than that, when we look at the world and all that is being foisted upon it by the global elites, AND consider that God must judge this unrepentant, sin-filled, depraved planet of unbelieving, Christ-rejecting humanity, suddenly all these various dots line up and the picture emerges that life as we know it will soon come to an end.

We’ll examine these issues in more depth, but first we’ll pray and read a Scripture.





Ezekiel 14:13-23 & Ezekiel 16:23 & Ezekiel 24:13-14

“Son of man, when a land sins against me by acting faithlessly, and I stretch out my hand against it and break its supply of bread and send famine upon it, and cut off from it man and beast, even if these three men, Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, they would deliver but their own lives by their righteousness, declares the Lord God.


“If I cause wild beasts to pass through the land, and they ravage it, and it be made desolate, so that no one may pass through because of the beasts, even if these three men were in it, as I live, declares the Lord God, they would deliver neither sons nor daughters. They alone would be delivered, but the land would be desolate.

“Or if I bring a sword upon that land and say, Let a sword pass through the land, and I cut off from it man and beast, though these three men were in it, as I live, declares the Lord God, they would deliver neither sons nor daughters, but they alone would be delivered.


“Or if I send a pestilence into that land and pour out my wrath upon it with blood, to cut off from it man and beast, even if Noah, Daniel, and Job were in it, as I live, declares the Lord God, they would deliver neither son nor daughter. They would deliver but their own lives by their righteousness.


“For thus says the Lord God: How much more when I send upon Jerusalem my four disastrous acts of judgment, sword, famine, wild beasts, and pestilence, to cut off from it man and beast! But behold, some survivors will be left in it, sons and daughters who will be brought out; behold, when they come out to you, and you see their ways and their deeds, you will be consoled for the disaster that I have brought upon Jerusalem, for all that I have brought upon it. They will console you, when you see their ways and their deeds, and you shall know that I have not done without cause all that I have done in it, declares the Lord God.”


“Then it came about after all your wickedness” (‘Woe, woe to you!’ declares the Lord God),


“On account of your unclean lewdness, because I would have cleansed you and you were not cleansed from your uncleanness, you shall not be cleansed anymore till I have satisfied my fury upon you. I am the Lord. I have spoken; it shall come to pass; I will do it. I will not go back; I will not spare; I will not relent; according to your ways and your deeds you will be judged,” declares the Lord God.”


The Fourth Turning Collapse


Speaking of the end of the world as we know it, Mark Stein wrote an engaging book in 2006 titled America Alone.  Stein is a funny guy, as you might know if you’ve ever listened to him or read anything he’s written.  In that humorous style, he chronicles in this book the very serious subject of the demise of western civilization.  A major point in the book is how the Replacement (Fertility) Rate for nations to remain sustainable entities is for women of childbearing years to each have a minimum of 2.1 children.  America and other western nations were under that 2.1 number back in 2006.  As of 2022 the United States sits at a rate of 1.7 children.  We are on a collision course with annihilation.


In contrast, Muslim nations have two to three times the Replacement Rate for their women.  This is one reason why some (foolish) people believe we need to import Muslims and other people groups through unchecked illegal immigration.  In one sense, our country and those of Europe cannot continue to exist without a greater population – we will literally self-destruct.  It is thought that we can only continue as a nation by importing those who have higher birthrates.  Of course, this results in a population far removed from our founding ideals because these people are not assimilating.  Continuing in this fashion also results in the extinction of our nation.


If considered through the globalist worldview, America and others must cease to exist as strong national entities in order for the New World Order to come into existence.  From their perspective, both the immense decrease in native western populations and the increase of those who don’t have similar values work together to accomplish the objective.


Regarding The Fourth Turning, time doesn’t allow me to dive too deeply into this, but as the book describes, each turning has a specific characteristic that is repeated every eighty to one hundred years.  “The First Turning is a High…The Second Turning is an Awakening…The Third Turning is an Unraveling…The Fourth Turning is a Crisis.”  Again, from the book’s title, you’ll likely deduce that the Fourth Turning is of greatest interest right now, because it reflects where America is historically in this worldview.  The authors have much to say about this.  In a nutshell, the Crisis of The Fourth Turning is a season of great disruption with social, economic, political, and every other kind of chaos one could use to describe an era as unsettling as this one is.  As an aside, within each turning, different generational characteristics also arise so that the different age groups of the people populating each season have an archetypal role to play – something I won’t discuss today.


The authors note seven primary areas which are affected during each turning, i.e. each 80-100 year period.  I’ll read their descriptions and then correlate them to where we are today as best I can.  Remember these were listed back in 1997 looking backward in history and forward to today in our current Fourth Turning.  I’m sure you’ll immediately begin associating these issues to what you see all around us.  They are:


  1. Economic distress, with public debt in default, entitlement trust funds in bankruptcy, mounting poverty and unemployment, trade wars, collapsing financial markets, and hyperinflation (or deflation)
  2. Social distress, with violence fueled by class, race, nativism, or religion and abetted by armed gangs, underground militias, and mercenaries hired by communities
  3. Cultural distress, with the media plunging into a dizzying decay, and a decency backlash in favor of state censorship
  4. Technological distress, with cryptoanarchy, high-tech oligarchy, and biogenic chaos
  5. Ecological distress, with atmospheric damage, energy or water shortages, and new diseases
  6. Political distress, with institutional collapse, open tax revolts, one-party hegemony, major constitutional change, secessionism, authoritarianism, and altered national borders
  7. Military distress, with war against terrorists or foreign regimes equipped with weapons of mass destruction [p. 376]


The authors go on to state:

… The very survival of society will feel at stake…

 … Decisive events will occur—events so vast, powerful, and unique that they lie beyond today’s wildest hypotheses.

 … Thus will Americans reenact the great ancient myth of ekpyrosis, [i.e. the Greek Theory of destruction and re-creation].  Thus will we achieve our next rendezvous with destiny.  [p. 377]


How accurate were the authors in their Fourth Turning prediction from their vantage point in 1997?  What is currently happening now that we’ve turned the corner into this historic era?  Taking a quick look at the above ingredients pointing toward climax, here’s a little of what we see using the same categories:


  1. Economic distress– Debt hovers at unprecedented levels.  We’re printing money like it’s going out of style (hint: it is going out of style, as we enter the CBDC era with Central Bank Digital Currencies).  The stock market boom is about to crater.  The real estate bubble is about to burst.  Global shortages of literally everything, from baby formula to fertilizer, are being engineered to create an overwhelming crisis leading to worldwide famine.  The Federal Reserve – which has no idea what to do and has inevitably been wrong and too late in acting in the past – is making things worse by raising interest rates.  Someday soon the financial markets will be overwhelmed with debt burdens and will crash with great disruption around the world.
  2. Social distress– Racism is charged at every turn.  To many people, simply being white is an indictment against the character of a person.  Many cities have been plagued by violence through gangs such as MS-13 and Antifa.  Individuals and organized gangs are now roaming city streets and plundering high-end stores with no repercussions.  Horrific mass murders seemingly come out of nowhere. New diseases are regularly reported.  First we had COVID as the most dangerous virus ever to traverse the planet.  Now Monkeypox is rising to take COVID’s place.  Of course, the intent is to vaccinate the world so as to inject the myriad of ingredients engineered into the jabs to prepare people and their bodies for the next phase of the globalist agenda.
  3. Cultural distress– The bias of the mainstream media has become legendary against conservatives and Christians.  When we see someone like Elon Musk potentially purchasing Twitter and restoring a semblance of free speech, we rejoice, yet we neglect to realize that Musk has a very dark side to him with his satanist girlfriend.  The LGBT and trans movements are so prominent that no one of good morals can escape their in-your-face message.  Children in public – even private or Christian – schools are indoctrinated with this perverted lifestyle.  Seemingly wholesome venues for entertainment in the past have shown their true colors.  Disney, for example, is a hotbed of deviant propaganda.
  4. Technological distress– No one’s online accounts are safe with the prevalence of hackers and identity theft.  We receive regular updates about the dangers of CRISPR genetic engineering that modifies human embryos.  People are willingly turning themselves into cyborgs, i.e. “being[s] with both organic and biomechatronic body parts.” (Wikipedia). Artificial Intelligence (AI) holds great promise but significant risk for humanity.  The WEF’s Fourth Industrial Revolution intends to alter the genetic makeup of man that God declared as good.  Biosurveillance is ubiquitous and will become more so.  Digital passports – begun under the COVID plandemic – will be declared an absolute necessity for all citizens of the world in short order so that the populace can be tracked and controlled.
  5. Ecological distress–High intensity 6.3 or greater earthquakes have increased exponentially, with massive earthquake clusters so common around the world as to almost be ignored.  Over the last several years there have been incredible locust swarms eating up Africa and Asia.  Drought has consumed the American west.  Unprecedented rain storms and tornadoes cause incredible damage elsewhere.  What was dismissed as paranoia in the past has now been proven.  Contrails emitted from high-flying planes crisscross the skies and deposit aluminum, graphene oxide, and other unnatural elements into the atmosphere.  These drift down into the earth and water supplies to poison people everywhere.  Much of the elemental chaos is artificially caused by the HAARP array of microwave towers worldwide that manipulate the weather.  Doubtless, God has a heavy hand in this as well.
  6. Political distress– Not much need be said about the political climate in this country.  Partisanship, completely unfounded lies, attempts to thwart the Constitution and political schemes abound.  Cancel culture demands censorship so that no one can speak political or moral truth.  The January 6 Trump ralliers were labeled as terrorists and still languish in prison.  The legal system is completely corrupt.  Every effort is currently being made to hand over US sovereignty to the WHO.  If that doesn’t lead to civil war, I’d be surprised.
  7. Military distress– The Russia-Ukraine war has been purposefully escalated.  China is threatening to invade Taiwan.  Iran continues its quest to develop a nuclear bomb so as to destroy the Great and Little Satans, i.e. the US and Israel.  The Ezekiel 38 coalition of Russia, Iran, and Turkey, all quartered in Syria ready to pounce on Israel at the appropriate God-appointed time, holds the attention of the world.  War is a wonderful tool to the globalists because it kills so many civilians and destroys nations.  We are certainly in the era of wars and rumors of war with only escalation on the horizon.


As you can imagine, all this chaos and intentional harm will indeed have an effect on the world population.  Our focus today is primarily on America – with good reason as you’ll see in a moment.


But first, aren’t the predictions in The Fourth Turning stunning in their accuracy?  History can indeed teach us much.  Unfortunately, the Left – just as George Orwell’s playbook in 1984 laid out – cannot allow true history to be taught.  Orwell’s Memory Hole is alive and well, as those historical events that run counter to the Left’s narrative must be disappeared.



Given the historical evidence, The Fourth Turning can result in absolutely stunning consequences.  With the distress of the times, you might think – correctly – that such a chaotic era has the potential of causing significant death and destruction.  If a demonic hand behind the scenes is pulling the puppet strings of those who adhere to a satanic agenda in the natural realm, is it possible that the dark guiding light of the Georgia Guidestones – with their proclamation that humanity should top out at 500 Million people – might indeed come to pass in this current hour of our existence?


As I noted in the introduction, a well-known military contractor/think tank made a prediction on 2014 that few people could conceive as being possible.  I have no idea the rationale behind Deagle’s prognosis – was there a Biblical aspect, the hand of God, or simply good analysis?  Regardless, given the extinction protocol evident in the last couple years, Deagle could be very accurate.


The population of the United States hovers at around 330 Million people.  Deagle forecast that in two years from now – in 2025 – the US population would decrease by 70% down to 99 Million people.  Process that for a moment.  330 Million reduced to 99 Million – a 70% reduction in men, women, and children.


How outlandish is that?  Maybe not so much when we consider the following:


  • The COVID treatment protocols in hospitals with the use of late treatment, the deadly drug Remdesivir, and the fatal inserting of ventilators calibrated at extreme levels, has resulted in unprecedented numbers of deaths in these places that are supposed to cultivate life. This is a practice I call Hospicide, i.e. hospital homicide.
  • The COVID so-called vaccines have been shown to contain a potpourri of various ingredients that either kill people right away or which disperse throughout people’s bodies as ticking timebombs. The more jabs one has, the greater the build-up of lethal substances.  The list of adverse events is something like five pages long.  It includes death, heart attacks, strokes, and so much more.  The lifespan of those with these gene-altering injections who don’t die immediately is significantly reduced to anywhere from several months to several years.
  • Bryan Ardis through significant research has postulated that all-things-COVID may have the common denominator of snake venom at their core. COVID and vaccine symptoms highly correlate with those of snake venom.  We’re literally being poisoned to death.
  • COVID isn’t the only disease vector that has been unleashed – yes unleashed, as in deliberately manufactured through gain-of-function research that has the intent of both frightening the populace and harming it. The coming attractions in this realm are endless.  The current diseases we’re cowering from include bird flu, Monkeypox, Marburg, and if we really get lucky – Smallpox.
  • Engineered drought and other climate catastrophes continue to mount and kill. Planned global shortages of literally everything are creating famine conditions that will impact millions in all nations.  Poorer countries are affected first and most, but well-heeled western nations are feeling the pinch.  How many infants will die from lack of baby formula?
  • War is a marvelous tool for those who wish to decimate populations. The Biden Regime has done everything possible to encourage WW3, from calling for the assassination of Vladimir Putin to supplying arms to Ukraine.  Many in this region have already died and/or become refugees.  Historically the globalists love war because of its outcomes: people die and they get richer.
  • I could probably chronicle any number of other planned and orchestrated events that either directly or indirectly kill off people. What will likely lead to a potential realization of the Deagle prediction is the Rapture of Christ’s true church, i.e. the ekklesia, those called out by God to be snatched out of this lost and unbelieving world so that He can rain down wrath and judgment.  We know that the opening of the first 4 Seals in Revelation will start the process with untold millions dying from the sword, famine, plague, wild beast, and failing hearts.  A decrease of 50-70% of today’s population early on in the Tribulation is highly likely, whether Deagle was viewing this through a Biblical and prophetic lens or not.


We don’t have guidance as to what the final population of the world will be once the Tribulation ends, although Revelation does describe 1/4 and 1/3 of people potentially dying during the specified Judgments.  We know that Jesus said the way is narrow into God’s kingdom.  Typically, a remnant in the Bible is shown as about 1/10th of the population, i.e. those who remain true to the Lord.  Many profess to be Christian today, but large numbers pay only lip service.  The great apostasy in the church is well underway.  How many might be Raptured?  How many might come to Christ during those awful 7 years?  Only God knows, but given remnant calculations, those not numbered as part of this blessed group will be in the billions.


As you can see, I absolutely believe we are in the Fourth and Final Turning prior to the return of Jesus.  The collapse of the world is well underway because God’s necessary judgment is upon the earth.  The Rapture will accelerate that.


For those of us who know Jesus and are secure in that relationship, we certainly grieve at what we currently see, but we also rejoice that our time is short upon this earth.  There is a concept of the fullness of the Gentiles as Paul notes in Romans 11:25 that is necessary before Jesus comes in the clouds for His faithful few and Israel can subsequently be redeemed.  I suggest we pray for that number to be completed.  Those who will come to faith in Christ are those who will come; those who reject His sacrificial offer are those who likewise will reject Him.


Our hope is a heavenly one.  This earth is not our home.  Do you feel like me that it is growing more alien every day?  We should mourn and weep and pray – both for our loved ones and because God’s punishment is terrible and real.  Let us give God all glory and praise!  He knows what He’s doing, and very soon this world will seem like only a distant memory to those of us who love Him.

Monkeying with Monkeypox

Better Monkeypox than Smallpox.  If we were talking about Smallpox right now, the situation – if accurate – would truly be horrifying for humanity.

Few are saying it, but I will: The fact that Monkeypox is spreading to humans is because it has been engineered to do so with gain-of-function research.  The book The Demon in the Freezer by Richard Preston, which is primarily about Smallpox, details the efforts to first eradicate this terrible disease, then to find methods – believe it or not – of enhancing its virility.  This book was written in 2002.  Do you think that perhaps in twenty years, genetic researchers might have perfected their art, not only with Smallpox but with Monkeypox?

If you’ve never read a description of the horrors of Smallpox and want to be completely freaked out how infectious and deadly it is, as well as gain a great appreciation for how Bio-level 4 laboratories work, you’ll find the narrative in Demon quite fascinating as I did.  The author discusses the use of anthrax as a bioweapon that was used around the September 11, 2001 WTC attacks and explores its intersection with Smallpox, along with the potential combination of anthrax and Smallpox as a weaponized, genetically engineered doomsday scenario.  All fun stuff, as you can imagine.

Detailed at length is the effort first to enhance Mousepox to cause its lethality to break through any vaccines or immunity and then how researchers have likewise done the same with Smallpox. Monkeypox is noted throughout the book, just not in the extensive manner of these other infectious viruses.

One of the things I took away from the book, especially with the current Monkeypox scare that is being propagated throughout the media, is how these poxes can be DNA-modified to become more potent.  That’s one of the key points.  Researchers and scientists in this area are never content to leave well enough alone.

All of a sudden around the world we have outbreaks of Monkeypox.  Previously monkey to human transmission could occur, but it was rare.  Interestingly, Smallpox could not jump from humans to monkeys.  The researchers couldn’t let that one go.  In a series of experiments following the eradication of Smallpox in 1978 (hello – it was ERADICATED for a reason) permission was given to do one final experiment on infecting monkeys.  The researchers succeeded.  The question then becomes: If someone wanted to initiate a global pandemic of the previously rare infection of Monkeypox with humans, what would they do?  The answer is: Scientists would be set loose in trying to make it more infectious.  Given what we’ve seen over the last couple years with COVID gain-of-function manipulation, can anyone reasonably believe this is a naturally occurring event?

As it turns out we have clues that indicate this has been planned, just as COVID was.  Coincidentally (hah! – if you believe in coincidences, you’re extremely naïve), a simulation was conducted in March 2021 on the possible outbreak of – wait for it – Monkeypox.  Of even great coincidence (ah-hem; pardon me while I clear my throat), the simulation posited that the Monkeypox outbreak would begin mid-May 2022.  Are these people prescient, or what?  So, just like the Event 201 simulation was held a few months prior to the beginning of COVID with all the corresponding scenarios that might arise, so it was with the 2021 Tabletop Exercise Conducted in Partnership with the Munich Security Conference.  Of course, you’ll never guess WHO took part in the simulation.  If you wildly speculated that the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the CDC, and Big Pharma executives had a hand in it, you win the prize; free vaccination for you and your family.

Oh, did I tell you that the Biden Regime has ordered up millions of doses of Monkeypox vaccine for $119 Million?  They have the option to buy another $180 Million worth of vaccines if desired.  You see, our government has your best interests at heart.

Of great interest in this narrative is also the fact that Wuhan Labs were experimenting with Monkeypox last year in a manner that could be identified through the infamous PCR tests used for COVID.  You can’t make this stuff up.

Naturally, the Ukraine biolabs come into this picture as well as the possible source of the monkeying around with the genetic makeup of this disease.  I have no stake one way or the other in the Russia-Ukraine conflict, but I have seen reports that Putin has specifically targeted to destroy these US-funded biolabs because of the dangers of this very situation.

The World Health Organization has helpfully assembled an information page about Monkeypox so that we can all be fully informed.  Of interest is that the Smallpox vaccine works against Monkeypox.  However, those individuals with compromised immune systems can be at risk.  One wonders about this given the VAIDS epidemic, i.e. the Vaccine Acquired Immuno-Deficiency Syndrome, that has “mysteriously” sprung onto the scene since COVID vaccine injections began.  If a person’s immune system is compromised and he takes the Smallpox/Monkeypox vaccine, how will that work?  Another fascinating detail in its spread is the caution that it is occurring primarily within the homosexual community.  That may be true, but it’s also true that many, many people are now immune-deficient.

What is the difference in symptoms between Monkeypox and Smallpox for me to have made the statement earlier that I did as to being thankful this isn’t an epidemic of the worser kind?

Comparatively, Monkeypox is pretty mild.  According to the CDC, it’ll initially feel like the flu.  As it progresses, the subject will get pustules, lesions, and scabs.  You’ve probably seen photos – if not here are some.  The prognosis for fatalities with Monkeypox is all over the board, ranging anywhere from 1% up to 10%.  If the disease has been enhanced through gain-of-function research, who knows how it might transmit and spread or kill in greater measure?

Smallpox is another beast altogether with a better than 30% mortality rate – truly a demon as described in the book I noted.  From The Demon in the Freezer, here is a description of a man who contracted Smallpox in 1970:


The red areas spread into blotches across Peter Los’s face and arms, and within hours the blotches broke out into seas of tiny pimples.  They were sharp feeling, not itchy, and by nightfall they covered his face, arms, hands, and feet.  Pimples were rising out of the soles of his feet and on the palms of his hands, and they were coming up in his scalp and in his mouth, too.  During the night, the pimples developed tiny, blistery heads, and the heads continued to grow larger.  They were rising all over his body, at the same speed, like a field of barley sprouting after rain.  They were beginning to hurt dreadfully, and they were enlarging into boils.  They had a waxy, hard look, and they seemed unripe.  His fever soared abruptly and began to rage.  The rubbing of his pajamas on his skin felt like a roasting fire.  He was acutely conscious and very, very scared.  The doctors didn’t know what was wrong with him.

 By dawn on Thursday, January 15th, his body had become a mass of knob-like blisters.  They were everywhere, all over, even on his private parts, but they clustered most thickly on his face and extremities.  This is known as the centrifugal rash of smallpox.  It looks as if some force at the center of the body is driving the rash out toward the face, hands, and feet.  The inside of his mouth and ear canals and sinuses had pustulated, and the lining of the rectum may also have pustulated, as it will do in severe cases.  Yet, his mind was clear.  When he coughed or tried to move, it felt as if his skin was pulling off his body, that it would split or rupture.  The blisters were hard and dry, and they didn’t leak.  They were like ball bearings embedded in the skin, with a soft, velvety feel on the surface.  Each pustule had a dimple in the center.  They were pressurized with an opalescent pus.

 The pustules began to touch one another, and finally they merged into confluent sheets that covered his body, like a cobblestone street.  The skin was torn away from its underlayers across much of his body, and the pustules on his face combined into a bubbled mass filled with fluid, under the skin that essentially detached from its underlayers and became a bag surrounding the tissues of his head.  His tongue, gums, and hard palate were studded with pustules, yet his mouth was dry, and he could barely swallow.  The virus had stripped the skin off his body, both inside and out, and the pain would have seemed almost beyond the capacity of human nature to endure.


Note: part of the process of Smallpox is to develop a cytokine storm.


Cytokines are messengers that drift in the bloodstream.  Cells in the immune system use them to signal to one another while the immune system mounts a response to an attack by an invader.  In a cytokine storm, the signaling goes haywire, and the immune system becomes unbalanced and cracks up, like a network going down.  The cytokine storm becomes chaotic, and it ends with a collapse of blood pressure, a heart attack, or a breathing arrest, or with a stench coming through the skin, like something nasty inside a paper bag.  No one is certain what happens in the cytokine storm of smallpox.  The virus is giving off unknown proteins that jam the immune system and trigger the storm, like jamming radar, which allows the virus to multiply unhindered.  (pgs 29-30)


Where have we heard about a cytokine storm before?  It is what often happens in the body when someone has COVID and/or of someone injected by the COVID “vaccine.”  The marvelous systems God designed in our bodies become completely out-of-phase and the body destroys itself in the confusion.

Here are images of Smallpox in multiple places at various times.  If all this doesn’t give you nightmares . . .  (You’re welcome).

Such a description makes me think of the terrible boils as part of the plagues God brought down on Egypt to facilitate the Exodus.  It makes me consider even more what the 1st Bowl in Revelation 16:2 will do to the unbelieving world which has rejected and cursed God:

So the first angel went and poured out his bowl on the earth, and harmful and painful sores came upon the people who bore the mark of the beast and worshiped its image.

So, where does all this leave us?

What should be obvious to everyone on the planet by now, but sadly is not, is that Monkeypox – just like COVID – is a planned, engineered, narrative.  It has been game-theoried in a simulation event, and is simply one of many attacks that the globalist elites will unleash upon the world.  In some respects, Monkeypox is the precursor to what I believe will be sprung upon America and elsewhere in September of this year.  We can be thankful for now that we’re not seeing a Smallpox plandemic, but it wouldn’t surprise me in the least if that happens at some point.  After all, the intent is to depopulate the world.  Smallpox because of how infectious it is, is a terrific weapon to accomplish that.

We’re still waiting as well for the cyber event that was role-played in the various Cyber-Polygon preparations (next one coming this July), so don’t get too comfortable having electricity, water from your faucets, or internet access.  When the next crisis hits by early Fall, it will likely be the perfect set-up to blame conservatives and Christians as domestic terrorists and take action against them.  Under such a nationwide emergency that will be promoted, it may be “necessary” to implement martial law and/or rule that guns in private hands are illegal and subject to severe enforcement against those who resist.  Naturally, with the country in extremis of this nature, it wouldn’t be prudent to hold the November elections because of the many dangers.  All who anticipate a Republican takeback of government this Fall will be sorely disappointed.

For those believing the Pollyanna-ish view that a Great Awakening will halt all this demonic agenda and bring America and the world back to some semblance of “normal”, don’t hold your breath.  The Bible clearly tells us that these end-times will grow worse – not better – just as birth pains increase in intensity and frequency.  Birth pains give way to birth; the travail we are experiencing will result in the Tribulation.

What we see happening must take place to fulfill Bible prophecy.  The world is getting worse because Jesus said it would.  Christians can deny it all they want and pray for a return to times past, but God has His purposes in allowing all this to come about.  He MUST judge the world.  Every nation is guilty of great sin against Him.  That includes America.  Our good deeds from the past have been rendered null and void.  Our spiritual eyes as a nation are upon pagan gods; we have forgotten the One true God.  Just as Israel turned from Him and suffered the consequences at the appropriate time, so must America; and that time is now.

Take heed.  Establish yourself in your faith and don’t allow your eyes and heart to wander.  When possible, reach out to the lost that some may be saved from the wrath to come.  As for us who love the Lord, we have a wedding date coming up very soon.  Let us anticipate that with great excitement.  Christ’s Rapture of the true church is sooner than we can possibly imagine.

Awaken Bible Prophecy Update 5-25-22: Wolves Awakening

One of the issues that should be of great concern to all of us is the increasing apostasy in the church as we spiral downward toward the Tribulation in these last days.  There are numerous reasons for this.  In my videos and writings, I’ve chronicled many of the heresies that the church of today has adopted.  What this really means, however, is that the church is spawning more and more people who will go to hell because of the satanic doctrines preached from the pulpits and subsequently embraced by those in the pews.  These are flesh and blood people – individuals with hopes and dreams – who have been deceived.  This is the sad part.  Jesus came that none should perish, but that all might have eternal life.  He has given this opportunity to all who believe.  But these folks in apostate churches generally don’t have the means to attain the glory that Jesus promises because they aren’t taught doctrinal truth – neither do they seek it.  As a result, what these anti-God churches are doing is actually turning out wolves instead of sheep.

In today’s Awaken Bible Prophecy Update I want to review one of the first prophetic dreams given to Pastor Dana Coverstone from God called the Coming Persecution Dream.  With that as a basis I’d like to illustrate how that which was foretold is coming to pass.

First, we’ll pray, then read a Scripture and get right into our update for today.



Jude 4, 8-13

For certain people have crept in unnoticed who long ago were designated for this condemnation, ungodly people, who pervert the grace of our God into sensuality and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.


Yet in like manner these people also, relying on their dreams, defile the flesh, reject authority, and blaspheme the glorious ones. But when the archangel Michael, contending with the devil, was disputing about the body of Moses, he did not presume to pronounce a blasphemous judgment, but said, “The Lord rebuke you.” But these people blaspheme all that they do not understand, and they are destroyed by all that they, like unreasoning animals, understand instinctively. Woe to them! For they walked in the way of Cain and abandoned themselves for the sake of gain to Balaam’s error and perished in Korah’s rebellion. These are hidden reefs at your love feasts, as they feast with you without fear, shepherds feeding themselves; waterless clouds, swept along by winds; fruitless trees in late autumn, twice dead, uprooted; wild waves of the sea, casting up the foam of their own shame; wandering stars, for whom the gloom of utter darkness has been reserved forever.


Wolves Awakening



  • Pastor Dana began having dreams early in 2020 and began sharing them in June of that year
  • I’ve believed since hearing his dreams that they were from God
  • Many people have criticized Pastor Dana and pooh-poohed that these dreams were divinely orchestrated
  • So be it
  • However, let’s not forget what Joel 2:28-29 says regarding the last days:


“And it shall come to pass afterward,
    that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh;
your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
    your old men shall dream dreams,
    and your young men shall see visions.
Even on the male and female servants
    in those days I will pour out my Spirit.”


  • People can disregard God’s Word and not believe that He will do such a thing as give people dreams and visions prior to the return of Jesus, but that’s on them
  • If folks wish to believe in cessationism in which they think that all miracles, signs, and wonders, i.e. the Gifts of the Spirit ended at the end of the 1st Century, they can have at it
  • What I would ask such people to consider is if God would actually leave us powerless?
  • The cessationists say that God gave us His written Word in the form of the Bible, which is sufficient
  • That can be true, if people who come to Christ are able to read His Word
  • However, the truth of the matter is that many people come to saving faith in Jesus Christ in the 10/40 Window region of the world where Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Communism, and animism dominate
  • The Lord often works in these areas through dreams and visions
  • He must – otherwise how will such people hear the Good News?
  • In many countries missionaries are not allowed in and Bibles are illegal
  • Would God really just abandon the lost because of these facts on the ground?
  • Of equal importance is how dark such places are
  • They are breeding grounds for evil spirits which bind and blind the people
  • Witchdoctors and shamans are extremely powerful in their association with the demonic realm
  • They often display miracles, signs, and wonders straight from the pit of hell
  • They are like Simon the Sorcerer in Acts 8:9-24 where we’re told in verses 10-11:


 . . . and all the people, both high and low, gave him their attention and exclaimed, “This man is rightly called the Great Power of God.” They followed him because he had amazed them for a long time with his sorcery.


  • This is exactly the issue in the 10/40 Window with the false religions and ideologies that dominate
  • Don’t you think that God might need to do something to get the attention of the people there?
  • The Bible may be sufficient where it’s available and read, but that’s certainly not the case here
  • Anyone who is a cessationist needs to explain how that works in these places
  • I consider myself Pentecostal and believe in the Gifts of the Spirit, but I’m also a wary Pentecostal believer and want to test all things against the Word and by the Spirit
  • I think that where Joel’s prophecy will really take off is during the Tribulation, but just like all other signs of its approach, dreams and visions are increasing prior to that time, and they’ve certainly been working in the 10/40 Window for years but likewise ramping up in these final days


  • The thing to understand about dreams is that they may have some very specific aspects about them
  • However, they are often also highly symbolic, and people seem to forget that fact
  • In Pastor Dana’s initial dream recounting in his Three Prophetic Dreams posted June 26, 2020, I think this is very apparent looking back
  • One of the things he saw in the dream – and this is important to understand: he SAW things
  • That doesn’t mean he is a prophet declaring that “Thus saith the Lord,” which he made a point right up front that he has no aspirations to be called a prophet
  • He simply is reporting what he saw in the dreams that he believes were of God
  • People can then take it or leave it
  • Dana said that he saw blue-helmet UN troops in Washington, DC
  • He also saw that many of them were Russian and Chinese
  • Now this is the tricky part, and I believe we can take our cue from the prophets of old in this
  • There was timing specificity because of the calendar emphasis foreseen in the dream regarding much confusion and darkness in the Fall of 2020
  • It’s easy to think that the UN presence in DC was part of that timing aspect – but that’s not necessarily the case
  • We read the account of certain visions by Isaiah or Jeremiah and both the immediate and the long range are mixed together, so that they seem like they will happen at the same time
  • Consider the prophesies of Jesus in Matthew 24 and the contention among Bible prophecy teachers as to whether there is a reference to the Rapture period or if everything pertains to the Lord’s Second Coming
  • For the record, I believe the Rapture reference is very clear, and Jesus in the same figurative breath is speaking about both His coming for believers in the Rapture and His coming in judgment and glory at the Second Coming
  • In the same manner, I think we can look at the symbolism of the UN, Russian, and Chinese troops in Washington DC and understand two things:
    • #1 – Washington has certainly been taken over politically by these Communist state actors – this has been going on for a very long time
      • Their presence in the dream like that could be a reflection of this reality
    • #2 – It is very probable that we’re heading into a period where the US completely loses its sovereignty – a period in which literal UN troops with Russian and Chinese military among them could very well walk the streets of our nation’s capital
      • The WHO pandemic treaty is just one means for us to become part of the globalist pack subject to the whims of the elites under the jurisdiction of the United Nations
      • In addition, we keep getting statements from various sources that China has a significant presence in Canada and is just waiting for the right moment to invade the US
        • Is that true? I don’t know – but it’s out there
      • My point is that those who mocked Pastor Dana’s dreams don’t seem to consider the issues I’m noting here regarding how God uses and orchestrates dreams


  • With that as preface, let’s consider the Coming Persecution Dream


Coming Persecution Dream

  • Pastor Dana reported this dream on June 27, 2020, literally the next day from the first set of dreams
  • What I’ll do is summarize this dream as best I can:


  • The first scene shows wolves asleep in a field – there could be hundreds or thousands of them, but even at rest they appear menacing
  • A dark figure runs into the field and begins rousing them with a whip and stirring them into a frenzy – as this continues it’s apparent that the beasts respect the man as their master
  • The wolves all have intense, red eyes that glow brighter the more they are agitated
  • Finally, the man points 360 degrees in every direction and says, “Go to the cities”
  • They take off into the dark night at the man’s command


  • The second scene is one with hundreds of TV screens with pastors shown on them preaching the Gospel
  • This is a worldwide phenomenon as the pastors are of many different ethnicities
  • They are diligent in their preaching and teaching – sweating with the hard work they’re doing as they convey true Biblical principles
  • As the pastors do this many people can be seen in the church who are bored, looking at their watches as they wait for the messages to end
  • Many people are uncomfortable and some number of them walk out of the churches in the middle of the Gospel being preached
  • There are also a handful of people at the front of the churches at the altars where the pastors are bringing the Gospel
  • It’s clear that they believe what’s being said and they’re praying
  • In some manner they’re aware of those behind them in the pews not paying attention and there is a definite gap between the people who are engaged at the altar and those who aren’t, who are sitting wishing the service would end


  • Suddenly the howling of wolves sounds outside the churches
  • They’ve reached the cities as directed and are scratching at the church doors
  • The people up front at the altar hear the wolves and begin praying harder against what they know is an evil spirit at the door
  • Despite that, the wolves enter and walk around sniffing at the people sitting down and who have no idea the wolves are there
  • The eyes of the wolves are no longer red, but have turned coal black
  • Then the wolves sit right next to the people in the pews who continue not to listen to the pastor preaching the Word nor do they know the wolves are present


  • As the pastors ramp up their already intense preaching, the people in the pews get irritated
  • At the same time the wolves begin growling
  • The people begin yelling to the preachers: “Stop saying those things! I don’t want to hear them!”
  • But the pastors continue bringing the Word of God
  • The wolves now begin nudging and stirring up the people and are threatening the pastors who are saying Jesus’ Words that “The gate is narrow.”
  • The wolves begin nipping and biting at the pastors and threaten them even more
  • Interestingly, the wolves don’t directly threaten or touch the people at the altar – rather they are only attacking the pastors as they preach God’s Word
  • In the midst of this, many of the bored and uncomfortable people in the pews leave the church


  • The third scene of the dream is one of many courtrooms where judges sit and are pounding with their gavels
  • Pastors are in chains and jurors are crying
  • The judges declare as one in speaking to the pastors: “You can no longer preach this message and declare that this kind of lifestyle is sin!”
    • “You can’t say that Jesus is the only way.”
    • “You cannot declare that abortion is sin.”
    • “You can no longer preach from Scripture.”
  • In response to the judges, the pastors all assert: “We cannot do what you say!”


  • This outrages the judges and the scene shifts to churches surrounded by mobs of people who are all yelling: “Shut it down! Burn it down!”
  • The hate the mob exhibits is palpable, and this multitude harasses believers trying to enter or exit the churches
  • Strikingly, most of the people in these hateful crowds are those who had been sitting in the churches bored by the preaching of the Gospel and stirred up by the wolves
  • These are the ones who had not been listening and had no interest in God’s holy Word
  • These are the biggest persecutors, as they had never accepted God’s Word as truth for their lives and didn’t want to hear about sin
  • Many of them were raised in the church and in those places they never heard the Gospel, rather they heard and accepted a self-directed, good-feeling message and never truly placed their faith in Christ
  • Many went to college, became extremely liberal in their theology and accepted worldly ideologies
  • These people in the dream now enter the churches and chop up the pulpits with axes leaving nothing but shattered wood and shards of plexiglass
  • Finally, Christians were shown in chains and being ridiculed by those who had once sat next to them in the pews


  • The last thing that happens in the dream is the appearance of the man clothed all in white whom Pastor Dana subsequently identified in later dreams as the Jesus figure


  • He speaks directly to and through Dana to us with this message:
    • Brace yourself and endure to the end.”
  • And the dream ends



  • What is very clear is that the dream is for the church – both as a warning to the unfaithful and as urgent admonition to those who are faithful
  • Wolves have been infiltrating the church for many years
  • They’ve been in it and they’ve come out of it
  • The major push toward this was in the 1930s when communists determined that they must subvert the seminaries as the wellspring of the Gospel
  • By placing their communist brothers in the seminaries who pretended to be faithful seekers of the Word, they slowly and persistently changed hearts and minds toward socialist/communist ideals
  • The students became pastors and did two things:
    • #1 – They seeded themselves back into more seminaries teaching a different Gospel
    • #2 – The newly minted pastors took positions in churches and spread their bitter fruit
  • One of the main aspects of their teaching was that people did not need to read the Bible; rather that they could depend on their pastor to preach God’s Word
  • Thus, few in the church had any idea that what they learned was actually contrary to Scripture and the truth of God
  • From this poison spring all the ideologies we know today that have come to the fore:
    • The Bible is not inerrant
    • All the supernatural in Scripture can be explained by natural means
    • We can pick and choose those parts of the Bible that we prefer and omit those we don’t
      • Thus, we can follow the red-letter words of Jesus but ignore the writings of Paul
      • We need to unhitch from the OT
    • Prosperity is for the church in the same way it was for Israel, i.e. physical wealth is to be sought as a natural blessing of God
    • The church has replaced Israel as the object of God’s grace and mercy
    • Israel has lost all favor from God because of her sin and rejection of Him
    • Jesus was a social reformer, and that was His primary objective
    • Jesus was a good man and a prophet but not necessarily God
    • Jesus showed us that He is only one of many ways to heaven
    • There is no hell
    • Love is all we need
    • All prophecies in the Bible for the end-times have been fulfilled already with many of them being simply allegorical promises – not intended to be literal in their fulfillment
    • Bible prophecy has no practical use or application for us today
    • Abortion is part of God’s plan for mankind and my life
  • It’s this last issue that appears to be one which may be really stirring up the wolves
  • Remember, many of these people sat in churches at some point in their lives and never learned the truth of God
  • How many churches affirm the LGBT agenda for homosexual and trans rights and approval?
  • How many people in those churches are following the lead of their pastors who declare that these activities are not sinful?
  • Given what we’ve seen over the last decade with homosexuals in the pulpits and churches, is it really a surprise that many churches also support abortion just like those outside the church?
  • According to a 2016 Pew Research report the following church denominations either supported abortion rights with some limits or with few or no limits:
    • Episcopal Church
    • Evangelical Lutheran Church of America
    • United Methodist Church
    • Presbyterian Church USA
    • Unitarian Universalist
    • United Church of Christ
  • Now that we’re six years down the road from that survey, and given the times in which we live, how many more churches and/or denominations support abortion?
  • How many people even sitting in the pews of evangelical churches support abortion even if they don’t voice that support?
  • Now that Roe v Wade has again come to the forefront of the American conscience, how many people going to church are riled up by the satanic wolves?
  • If you’ve watched any of the videos of the pro-abortion protesters, you’ve likely seen the demonic in action
  • Some of these people simply throw back their heads and howl – just like wolves or rabid dogs
  • Will it be this issue that creates the final separation of true believers from those who simply mouth belief with their lips?
  • In our earlier Scripture of Jude, we see that God knew full well that apostasy and wickedness would rule the day at some point
  • Is it any wonder that Pastor Dana’s dream is a harbinger of things to come?
  • Consider the following verses:


  • Galatians 2:4


Yet because of false brothers secretly brought in—who slipped in to spy out our freedom that we have in Christ Jesus, so that they might bring us into slavery—


  • 2 Corinthians 11:26


on frequent journeys, in danger from rivers, danger from robbers, danger from my own people, danger from Gentiles, danger in the city, danger in the wilderness, danger at sea, danger from false brothers;


  • Matthew 7:15-16


“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes, or figs from thistles?


  • 2 Corinthians 11:13-15


For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. So it is no surprise if his servants, also, disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. Their end will correspond to their deeds.


  • 1 John 2:19


They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us. But they went out, that it might become plain that they all are not of us.


  • The purpose of these people is to do the will of Satan
  • After all, as we well know, there are only two types of people in the world
    • Those who belong to Jesus Christ who have been saved by grace through His shed blood on the cross
    • Those who are of the world and of Satan, either through ignorance or willful disdain, and rejection of the grace of Christ and the gift He gives of eternal life
  • What we see in Pastor Dana’s dream is currently being fulfilled
  • It will get worse
  • Once the Rapture of the true church happens, these wolves will be left behind gnashing their teeth and shaking their fists at God
  • The current apostasy in the church will result in this great separation of those who are snatched up by the Lord into heaven and those who are perfectly content to remain on earth practicing their evil deeds
  • Will any of them who had such hardness of heart and antipathy toward the Gospel message of the Good News of Jesus Christ turn from this wickedness once the wrath of God begins raining down on this unbelieving world in the Tribulation?
  • Is it possible to even reach these people in their pre-wolf state?
  • Can their turning into ravenous wolves who consume those they may have previously known in the church be prevented by a good or judicious word and the conviction of the Holy Spirit?
  • It’s hard to imagine, but thankfully that isn’t up to us
  • God has got it fully under control and will save whomever is convicted of the truth and calls out to Him with a humble and contrite heart
  • In the meantime, we need to be discerning about those who sit in church and profess Jesus as Lord
  • Are they bearing fruit?
  • It’s not up to us to judge a person’s heart, but we are instructed to bring correction and rebuke to those who sit among us, just as James 5:19-20 says:


My brothers, if anyone among you wanders from the truth and someone brings him back, let him know that whoever brings back a sinner from his wandering will save his soul from death and will cover a multitude of sins.


  • What’s the alternative? Such a person will stand before the Lord in judgment with the horrible result that Jesus declares in Matthew 7:21-23:


“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’


  • The wolves are surely around us and they are multiplying
  • However, we have a duty to the Lord to speak of righteousness and holiness in the effort to bring some to repentance
  • These can be outside the church, and they can certainly be inside it
  • Let’s be discerning and wise and occupy faithfully until Jesus comes, even to the wolves until it become evident that we must knock the dust off our feet and move on

Implications of Engineered Baby Formula Shortage

Update July 15, 2022:

If you have a need for baby formula because of the shortage discussed in this article, this link may help you to locate a supply to help you get through the crisis:

The latest crisis to clobber the American public is a purposeful shortage of baby formula.  This, of course, is just one of many global supply chain problems – along with deliberate acts of sabotage – whether through physical harm to a production plant or by governmental action.  In the case of baby formula shortages, the FDA appears to be a prime mover causing this issue.  This is not a result of incompetence.  It is all part of the intentional agenda to harm God’s best and most glorious creation – man – as evil continues manifesting within the human heart, egged on by Satan and his wicked minions.

Several months ago the FDA ordered the Abbott Laboratories plant that makes significant quantities of baby formula to close based on faulty information.  Supposedly a microbiological inspection of the plant yielded tainted formula . . . but then it didn’t.  However, the flawed diagnosis was enough for the government to close down the plant.  Naturally, this was just in time to add to the various shortage woes plaguing our nation.

Lately the Biden Regime stated that the baby formula crisis appeared out of nowhere as though it was a Jack-in-the-box, and only a mind-reader could have known that it would pop.  With the suddenness that it came about, there was naturally nothing that could be done to alleviate it.  Of course, this is one more lie that goes against the facts, which show that this crisis-in-the-making was known since at least February, i.e. a good two to three months prior to the shortages on grocery shelves.

Just to show the goodwill of our government and how much they care, it is now known that we are sending truckloads of pallets filled with what little baby formula is in stock to the Mexican border to feed the starving children of illegal aliens crossing our southern border in contradiction to the laws of our land.  What a compassionate people we are!  The problem is that as we do this, hundreds of thousands (millions?) of US citizens – parents of little babies dependent on formula – go without since the store shelves are bare.

Conveniently for those engineering this crisis, the number of US families on Food Stamps – now euphemistically called the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) – has skyrocketed since Barack Obama was president.  Over half of the infants in this nation are fed via WIC.  In other words, the dependency on government largesse of mothers and infants in this country is better than 53%.  We are a nation of welfare recipients pure and simple, which has significantly increased the absolute requirement for baby formula.

But, not to worry!  Just disclosed is the fact that Bill Gates has presciently prepared for this very day.  He, along with fellow billionaires Jeff Zuckerberg, Jeff Bezos, and others, have been massively investing in a start-up enterprise that manufactures artificial breast milk.  As described, it is the first cell-cultured human milk produced outside the breast.  We really need to consult Gates concerning the next Kentucky Derby.  With his crystal ball and astounding prescience, maybe we could cash in on an 80-1 longshot like what happened this year at Churchill Downs.

All snark and cynicism aside, this formular shortage is one more in a long list of engineered crises for the express purpose of implementing the New World Order, a.k.a. the Great Reset.  As I outlined in my recent Awaken Bible Prophecy Update titled The Serpent’s Seed, there is a nefarious and very deadly agenda in play.  It is one that intends great harm in any of several scenarios.  Evidence has come to light that mothers who have had the COVID jab and are breastfeeding their infants may be imparting large amounts of inorganic materials into their milk.  This makes the milk both undrinkable for the child and transmits who-knows-what if the baby does ingest it.  Given that situation, a mother would need to find another source of nutrition for the infant, namely prepared formula.

For those mothers that already decided to not breastfeed but to use off-the-shelf products, what do they do if baby formula has vanished from the supermarkets?  Is it even possible after a point for them to go back to breastfeeding?  What if they had the COVID injection and were able to begin suckling their child, would these mothers encounter the same problem as those who initially breastfed, i.e. poison in their milk?

So, mothers with children not yet able to handle solid food have a true dilemma.  Perhaps they should resort to what many parents have done in the past, i.e. make their own?  But wait!  The FDA has been warning vehemently against doing this because of the incredible dangers to the children of this approach.  We know how concerned the FDA is with the welfare of children.  After all, in order to protect them, they’ve authorized the COVID “vaccines” for little ones as young as six months to keep them healthy and flourishing.  Just ignore the tsunami of hepatitis cases among youngsters and you’ll believe the FDA on this point as well.

Contradicting the don’t-make-your-own narrative, several websites have published infant formulas people can make at home and that will be safe and nourishing.  You can find these here and here.

The fact of the matter is that the baby formula shortage is one more globalist attack on humanity in league with Satan and his hatred of mankind.  This is one more in the list of items in their genocide handbook.  Here is Proverbs 26:24-25 with a word to the wise:

Whoever hates disguises himself with his lips
and harbors deceit in his heart;
when he speaks graciously, believe him not,
for there are seven abominations in his heart;

The people behind these abominations hate with the passion of the demonic realm.  When they open their mouths, nothing but lies spew out.  We cannot believe anything they say.  Back in the day, President Ronald Reagan joked that the nine most terrifying words anyone could say were: “I’m from the government, and I’m here to help.”  What was humorously true then is a certainty today.  The sad reality is that our United States government means its people – the ones it is supposed to represent and protect – great harm.  The agenda of the great majority of people in power – whether having the public face of the Executive, Legislative, or Judicial branches – or those which comprise the Deep State, are dedicated to bringing our nation to its knees so as to usher in the New World Order.

Because we understand the times, we see that indeed America will fall.  It will lose its sovereignty just as every other nation on the planet will as well.  God is allowing this so that He can bring His righteous judgment upon the earth.

There is little time left.  If you know Jesus as you Lord and Savior, draw nearer to Him.  This is not an occasion to backslide and play with sin.  If you don’t know Jesus personally and have never bowed your knee to Him, the time is now.  You may not have another opportunity.  Acknowledge your sin.  Repent of it and ask the Lord for forgiveness.  Believe on Jesus Christ as the only One who can save and deliver you from the madness of this world.  Call upon His Name and declare Him as the Redeemer of your soul.

You’ll never regret it.

Awaken Bible Prophecy Update 5-18-22: Taking America Down

As a reminder, what I try to do here is to look at the world around us and try to connect the dots in relation to Bible prophecy.  It may have a very gloom and doom feel at times, but it’s exactly what Jesus said would happen.  There’s nothing pretty about the world in these last of days – after all it’s not our home.  This is why our eyes should be on the Lord, who is glorious, and who has promised us eternal joy and peace.

The effort to establish a New World Order (NWO) begins with the taking down of America.  It has long been acknowledged that until our nation is destroyed on literally every level, the globalist elites will not will be able to accomplish their long-cherished utopian dream.  This effort has been spearheaded – not by one faction – but by many.  Some of these groups who wish to accomplish the remaking of the world in this manner seemingly come from very different places.  Their viewpoints – or worldviews – are ones you’d think wouldn’t dovetail much.  You would be wrong.

The reality is that the demonic realm is behind all these movements.  Satan – if nothing else – has a very diverse approach toward replacing God and destroying all that he calls good.  Satan is Mr. Diversity himself.  It’s why he can encourage self-proclaimed atheists to believe there is no God, while at the same time infiltrating the church to believe in a different god than that of the Bible.  It’s why he can inspire some in the church to follow a god of prosperity, legalism, or liberation, while causing pagans to believe in THE Christ – or a Christ consciousness – within the New Age movement.


For today, I want to present what I hope will be informationally enlightening to you.  Recently a 10-point strategy for achieving the New World Order came to my attention.  It’s attributed to Alice Bailey from at least 75 years ago.  Bailey was a disciple of Helene Blavatsky, the founder of Theosophy, an occult religion.  She built on that foundation and established the Lucifer Publishing Company in support of United Nations goals.  Not long after that, in order to tone down the satanic implications of the name, Bailey changed Lucifer Publishing to the Lucis Trust.


Seeing this 10-point strategy made me think of the 45 stated goals of Communism that were declared in 1958 for the express purpose of destroying America.  I uselessly presented several of these at a local school board meeting last year in the vain hope of influencing some members of the board to reconsider their actions.  Pulling out this list again, it didn’t surprise me that there’s a lot of overlap in the objectives of these two very different groups.


Just for fun, I wondered how the 10-Commandments engraved on the Georgia Guidestones might also compare.  As many of you doubtlessly know, the Georgia Guidestones are called the American Stonehenge and contain a set of ten guidelines for the future of humanity written in a combination of twelve modern and ancient languages.  Also written on an explanatory stone tablet is the purpose for them.  It says: “Let these be guidestones to an Age of Reason.”


What I’m going to do is show you these three sources, effectively side-by side, so you can see the similarities in their goals.  What I think you’ll come to understand is that the secular and the spiritual that are outside of what the God of the Bible declares are in reality from the same source.


We’ll get to this in a minute.  First we’ll pray, read a Scripture and then pull up Powerpoint in order to visibly show this to make the comparison clearer.





Psalm 94

O Lord, God of vengeance, O God of vengeance, shine forth!
Rise up, O judge of the earth; repay to the proud what they deserve!
O Lord, how long shall the wicked, how long shall the wicked exult?
They pour out their arrogant words; all the evildoers boast.

They crush your people, O Lord, and afflict your heritage.
They kill the widow and the sojourner, and murder the fatherless;
and they say, “The Lord does not see; the God of Jacob does not perceive.”

Understand, O dullest of the people! Fools, when will you be wise?


He who planted the ear, does he not hear?
He who formed the eye, does he not see?
He who disciplines the nations, does he not rebuke?
He who teaches man knowledge—the Lord—knows the thoughts of man, that they are but a breath.

Blessed is the man whom you discipline, O Lord, and whom you teach out of your law, to give him rest from days of trouble, until a pit is dug for the wicked.

For the Lord will not forsake his people; he will not abandon his heritage;
for justice will return to the righteous, and all the upright in heart will follow it.

Who rises up for me against the wicked? Who stands up for me against evildoers?
If the Lord had not been my help, my soul would soon have lived in the land of silence.


When I thought, “My foot slips,” your steadfast love, O Lord, held me up.
When the cares of my heart are many, your consolations cheer my soul.
Can wicked rulers be allied with you, those who frame injustice by statute?
They band together against the life of the righteous and condemn the innocent to death.

But the Lord has become my stronghold, and my God the rock of my refuge.
He will bring back on them their iniquity and wipe them out for their wickedness; the Lord our God will wipe them out.


Taking America Down

  • POWERPOINT – Slide 1


Slide 2

Alice Bailey

  • As the standard for our comparison, let’s look briefly at Alice Bailey’s 10-Point Strategy for a New World Order:


  • #1 – Take God & prayer out of education system
  • #2 – Reduce parental authority over children
  • #3 – Destroy the traditional Christian family structure
  • #4 – If sex is free, make abortion legal & easy
  • #5 – Make divorce easy and legal; free people from the concept of marriage for life
  • #6 – Make homosexuality an alternative lifestyle
  • #7 – Debase art; make it run mad
  • #8 – Use media to promote and change mindset
  • #9 – Create an interfaith movement
  • #10 – Get governments to make all these law, and get the church to endorse these changes


  • No doubt you can already see how successful Alice Bailey’s vision for a NWO has been
  • It gets worse


Slide 3


  • We’ll also consider Communist goals for America to see how these have impacted our nation
  • Antonio Gramsci – 1920s
    • proposed theory for Marxist takeover of an advanced capitalist country
  • Gramsci determined it was necessary to undermine such a country’s culture and morality in order to pave way for socialism
  • Specifically, Gramsci said:
    • “Socialism is precisely the religion that must overwhelm Christianity…In the new order, Socialism will triumph by first capturing the culture via infiltration of schools, universities, churches and the media by transforming the consciousness of society.”
  • Also, let’s make no mistake about the purpose of socialism
  • Vladimir Lenin said:
    • “The goal of socialism is communism.”
  • By 1958 it was clear what Communists needed to do to take down America
  • They had 45 goals based on the Gramsci Model to break down the culture in our nation
  • As we’ll see as we continue, over the last 50 years, most of these goals have been achieved
    • None of these has been by accident
    • There has been deliberate undermining of American culture to destroy us from within to ultimately transform the U.S. into communist nation
  • Rather than go through these 45 Goals by simply listing them (too many), in a moment I’ll put many of them in the context of our discussion today
  • First, we’ll set up our last list for comparison


Slide 4

Georgia Guidestones

  • Because I’ve mentioned the Georgia Guidestones repeatedly, as have a number of other prophecy teachers, many of you are aware of them
  • For our purposes of comparison, I thought it might be interesting to see how these 10 Commandments for a NWO also play into the picture
  • As it turns out, they don’t have as direct of a correlation as the other two sources do because they are conveyed at a higher level for directing and accomplishing their stated purposes
  • We could say that these are the high-level goals that everyone in the globalist community is working toward, whereas Alice Bailey’s list and the Communist list are the objectives necessary to accomplish these goals from the spiritual and secular perspectives
  • Regardless, let me give you these 10 Georgia Guidestone commandments:





Slide 5


  • What we’ll do is work our way down Alice Bailey’s list, i.e. her 10-point strategy for a NWO and correlate both the Communist goals as well as the Georgia Guidestone commandments where appropriate
  • In my putting all this together, I felt there were some Georgia Guidestone items that weren’t addressed by either Bailey or the Communists
  • But, as we’ll see, the omission has not been ignored
  • The several Georgia Guidestone commandments not included by these groups we’re looking at today are certainly very much in play, and we’ll also deal with those
  • So . . . here we go, beginning with Alice Bailey’s overall purpose, i.e. a New World Order:



Slide 6


  • New World Order


  • #1 – U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.
  • #2 – U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.
  • #3 – Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.
  • #4 – Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.
  • #13 – Do away with all loyalty oaths.
  • #42 – Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use [“]united force[“] to solve economic, political or social problems.

Georgia Guidestones



  • All these items have the focus of taking America down
  • Of course, what most of us call the New World Order is specifically the WEF’s Great Reset that dovetails with the UN’s Agenda 2030
  • These efforts are what is behind the Build Back Better slogan
  • All that we know has to be torn down completely in order to build the utopian society of these people’s dreams
  • Many people in many different spheres have been actively engaged in this purpose for many years
  • We had to co-exist spiritually and in the world – thus we had to disarm
  • We were told that by trading with Communist nations we would influence them for the better to our way of life – how’s that working out?
  • Nationalism became repulsive in service to the globalist mindset
    • We all remember Coca-Cola and “I’d like to teach the world to sing” with the kumbaya moments it created
  • Other than the 1960s with the sex-drugs-and rock ‘n roll generation protesting the Vietnam War, when was violence and insurrection ever a part of the America way?
  • Here’s a thought for you:
    • When was the last time the world saw a single unified language?
    • Correct! – Just before God scattered people into nations when Nimrod built the Tower of Babel and God said that if He allowed them to continue, nothing would be impossible for them
  • Do you think that if perhaps humanity is united with a new living language, the result might be even more disastrous?



Slide 7


  • #1 – Take God & prayer out of education system


  • #17 – Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
  • #18 – Gain control of all student newspapers.
  • #19 – Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.




  • The anti-God factions have been chipping away at Him in our public and private education systems for years
  • They got the Pledge of Allegiance removed with that terribly provocative phrase “under God”
  • They made sure students couldn’t pray or even have a moment of silence
  • Remember Common Core and what a big deal it was for many of us?
    • Is that even an issue these days?
    • It’s completely integral to all curriculum and consumed by CRT and gender confusion
  • How about the teachers’ associations like the NEA?
    • Talk about a hotbed of liberalism and Communist sympathies!
    • They’ve been very successful in dictating what textbooks to use
    • In fact, I wonder if there are any positive portrayals of white males in school textbooks lately? Did white guys even found this nation? Shame on them for doing so!
  • If the great majority of teachers are leftists, and teachers are advisors to various student-run activities like the publishing of school newspapers, any thoughts on what the political slant of them might be?
  • Finally, do you recall all the student riots and demonstrations in the early to mid- part of the 20th Century in colleges and universities where they took over administration buildings and demanded their rights from the school presidents?
    • No, I don’t either, because that never happened



Slide 8


  • #2 – Reduce parental authority over children


  • #41 – Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.


  • Perhaps you’ve heard of the conservative on TikTok who goes under the name: Libs of TikTok
  • She simply shares what liberals themselves say on this platform
  • Quite often she finds the ravings of school teachers who are homosexual and/or trans
  • Most of these men and women – or whatever they are in their own minds – are quite convinced that they have truth and MUST influence/brainwash the children under their care to their way of thinking
  • As far as they’re concerned, parents give up all rights to their children when they place them in schools with such people
  • Parents should not be able to raise their children as they see fit
  • They have no authority



Slide 9


  • #3 – Destroy the traditional Christian family structure
  • #5 – Make divorce easy and legal; free people from the concept of marriage for life


  • #40 – Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.


  • These ideals are everywhere today in our faces
  • Love is love and thus anyone who loves should be able to marry
  • Families are anything these people say they are
  • When divorce became no-fault back in the 1970s, the bonds began breaking and the family structure ruptured
  • What God made – man has determined to break asunder



Slide 10


  • #4 – If sex is free, make abortion legal & easy


  • #25 – Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.


  • We only have to consider the demonic rage of the Left at the possibility of Roe v Wade being overturned
  • Women must be allowed to murder their own children in the womb because it’s their own body, after all, and the clump of cells growing in them has no more value than a cancerous tumor
  • As to the cultural breakdown, we have only to consider Disney and its many products to see how filth has overtaken the entire sphere of entertainment



Slide 11


  • #6 – Make homosexuality an alternative lifestyle


  • #26 – Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”

Georgia Guidestones



  • Not only is homosexuality normal in today’s thinking, but every kind of perversion is encouraged
  • You think it’s bad now?
  • Watch as bestiality becomes an alternative form of sexual behavior
  • Think of the diverse, chimeric creatures that could result along with the reduction of human population!
  • Humans are so wise when it comes to playing God!



Slide 12


  • #7 – Debase art; make it run mad


  • #22 – Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”
  • #23 – Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”


  • I wonder if this actually began with Picasso?
  • Do you remember the inspiring work of art known as Piss Christ that displayed a crucifix in a bottle with the artist’s own urine?
  • Once art became abstract, and wholesome paintings and other artistic expressions lost their moorings to reality, the race to the bottom began



Slide 13


  • #8 – Use media to promote and change mindset


  • #20 – Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.
  • #21 – Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.


  • I don’t think we have to say much about this
  • I’ll say one word and you can fill in the blanks after that: COVID
  • It’s become very apparent in the last couple years how the state has gained control of the media so that all news can be used for political propaganda



Slide 14


  • #9 – Create an interfaith movement


  • #27 – Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a “religious crutch.”
  • #28 – Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”

Georgia Guidestones



  • All religions lead to the same place
  • We all serve the same God
  • How dare Christians bring up the Name of Jesus in public schools!
  • We should, however, make sacred places for Muslims like prayer rooms and footbaths
  • Isn’t it wonderful that Mother Earth honors those who honor her?
  • What a wonderful thing it is for us to revere Gaia by worshiping her through our climate change programs!
  • She will care for her children and the harmony they bring by ridding the world of those who worship that Christian God that committed cosmic child abuse
  • You just wait until the Great Awakening happens – what truth and beauty we’ll have!



Slide 15


  • #10 – Get governments to make all these law, and get the church to endorse these changes


  • #33 – Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.


  • All we needed was a compliant presidential administration to make executive orders and mandates through unelected bureaucrats
  • Now that we’ve got this in the bag, America is coming down and our communist-globalist ideals can be set in place



  • We’ve looked at the correlations among Alice Bailey’s strategy, the Communist goals, and the Georgia Guidestones
  • There are still some other connections we can make, namely between the Communist goals and the Georgia Guidestones
  • Here we’ll change the order and start with the Guidestone commandments



Slide 16

Georgia Guidestones



  • #24 – Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.


  • The way to accomplish these items is through a Ministry of Truth, as George Orwell in his book 1984 predicted
  • Today we call it the Disinformation Governance Board headed by Nina Jankowitz
  • She will determine what is truth and what is falsehood
  • It will be her “tempered reason” that will assure no mis-dis-mal- information (MDM) is propagated in the public sphere
  • Anything Nina says is a violation of free speech will be so



Slide 17

Georgia Guidestones



  • #16 – Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.


  • A just court in globalist-Leftist terms is one comprised solely of progressives/liberals
  • Obviously only they can make fair laws
  • In fact, one of the best ways to assure this is through the packing of the Supreme Court by more of their kind, i.e. by adding several more SCOTUS judges that THEY pick
  • In fact, a Supreme Court of their choosing should be the ones making the laws of the land
  • There’s no need for a legislature chosen by “We the People” because that might result in unwanted outcomes



Slide 18

Georgia Guidestones



  • #11 – Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces.


  • We’re about to see this play out right in front of our eyes
  • If the WHO pandemic treaty is ratified in their meeting this upcoming May 22-28, all national sovereignty will be at the whim of the WHO
  • They can declare a worldwide pandemic and all nations must comply
  • Just think what that will mean for the implementation of digital/vaccine passports, lockdown, and any other extreme remedy they decide all peoples of the world should be subject to



Slide 19

Georgia Guidestones



  • #29 – Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.
  • #30 – Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”


  • The attack on our Constitution has been underway for many years
  • Leftists call it a Living Document, which means it can and should be changed
  • Barack Obama infamously said: “Generally, the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties, says what the states can’t do to you. Says what the federal government can’t do to you. But it doesn’t say what the state or federal government must do on your behalf.”
  • In other words, Obama wanted to specify exactly what he would require of his country through such a revised federal document
  • Lord Acton said: “Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.”
  • If Obama or anyone of his ilk could specify what we could specifically say, do, or even think with their charter of “positive” liberties, there would be no liberty at all



Slide 20

Georgia Guidestones



  • #32 – Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture–education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.


  • There is nothing – no personal or individual sphere of action – that Leftist do not want to control
  • Remember what Lenin said: “The goal of socialism is communism.”
  • Think about how our youth have been indoctrinated into socialism and to oppose capitalism
  • The leaders of tomorrow are well on their way toward implementing communism
  • Of course, it will flower and flourish with the implementation of Agenda 2030
  • Sadly for most people – i.e. those who do not know the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior – this will also begin the Tribulation and the raining down of God’s wrath upon this unbelieving world




  • Just so we see the whole picture, I’ll briefly list several more critical Communist objectives that we haven’t yet noted
  • There are even more than these, but this will suffice



Slide 21


  • #15 – Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.
  • #35 – Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.
  • #36 – Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.
  • #37 – Infiltrate and gain control of big business.
  • Comment
    • Check – check – check – check!
    • Republicans and Democrats all mostly vote alike – just as some people have been saying for years: there’s no difference
    • The FBI used to be a trusted division of law enforcement
    • Is there anyone today who thinks it is honorable?
    • If the FBI shows up at your door, do you expect the best?
    • Unions have been nothing but socialist and communist cesspools for years – just look again at the national Teachers Association
    • Big business has never been more in thrall to the government than today
    • The buzzword is public-private partnerships where government and business work hand-in-hand for the better ment of society
    • Think ESG, i.e. the Environmental, Social, & Governance model for our world to create “sustainability”
    • This is fascism pure and simple
    • Just look up Benito Mussolini and Italy from WW2 and you’ll see we’re recreating that model



  • Finally, there is one remaining Georgia Guidestone commandment that doesn’t appear to correlate with either Alice Bailey’s Strategy or the Communist objectives
  • Perhaps it’s the most important of all



Slide 22

Georgia Guidestones



  • This commandment – #1 for all globalists everywhere – is the linchpin for world domination
  • A world population of approximately 8 Billion people is far too many to manage
  • A population of 500 Million, however, sounds about right
  • Maybe a couple million of them are the elites
  • The rest will be drones, i.e. those made to work for the ones in charge
  • This extinction protocol is well underway
  • It ramped up with the engineered plandemic and the COVID injections – that are gene-altering experimental drugs
  • Understand this:
    • There are so many vectors of disease and harm that have been concocted and placed into these so-called vaccines, that all of the adverse elements could not have come from the minds of men alone
    • I guarantee you that the demonic realm – the Watchers of old – the rebellious sons of God who even now roam the earth with Satan – are responsible for the vast number of harmful components in these injections
    • These are the spiritual host of heaven that hate God
    • They partook of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil
    • They have such devious understanding at their command from the evil aspect of this Edenic tree
    • Just like in Noah’s day when mankind first began practicing metallurgy and secret arts, the understanding of these came from the spiritual realm
    • So it is with the evil of these mRNA compounds that masquerade as vaccines
    • It is now believed that another element in these drugs may soon be unleashed
    • Todd Calendar – who is an attorney representing many thousands in America’s military who refused the jab and were dismissed from service – believes he has significant evidence that Marburg virus has also been engineered into these jabs
    • Marburg is a hemorrhagic or bleeding disease that is quite deadly
    • In speaking recently on Jeffrey Prather’s show – The Prather Point – Calendar said that when the globalists are ready, they will emit an 18 Ghz signal through the 5G network that will activate this virus
    • Marburg is not contagious, but if this is true, we could at some point soon see a terrible plague of people bleeding to death from their various orifices
  • Understand, that there is no love within these globalists planning these adverse events upon the world
  • This is the ultimate outcome of love grown cold as Jesus stated in Matthew 24:12 with the increase of lawlessness





  • We may quibble how I correlated items on one list with another
  • But it should be plain to see that regardless whether we consider the spiritual element or the secular perspective, these goals and objectives are highly interrelated
  • As I noted earlier, Satan works in different realms and he’ll use whomever or whatever necessary to achieve what he desires
  • Given the state of the world, Satan believes he’s well on his way toward victory
  • In a recent article I wrote and posted on my website titled: Shemitah – Agenda 2030 – Tribulation Timing, I stated that I believe there will be an intersection of Agenda 2030 – being pushed by the World Economic Forum and the United Nations – and the Tribulation itself; more specifically the opening of the 1st Revelation Seal (read my article concerning this at link below)
  • All these issues noted earlier in this discussion are in play and will get worse
  • Because America is in the way of the globalist-satanic agenda, our nation MUST go down



Slide 23

  • Here are the two most important things to remember about what I’ve discussed today:
    • #1 – All this is happening because God is allowing it
      • He is letting it happen so that the lawlessness and evil of this day will rise to its ultimate level
      • Just as with ancient Israel and her worship of pagan gods, the world today is in thrall to and reveres any god but the One of the Bible
      • Israel’s idolatry reached such a level that God had to act in order to maintain His own character as a just, fair, and merciful God
      • He had to bring vengeance upon those who deliberately chose not to follow Him and obey His commands
      • So it is today
      • Soon, the red line will be crossed by these people
      • They will have gone one step too far
      • Finally, God’s patience will come to an end
      • God MUST act and bring judgment in order to punish those who hate Him
      • All we see around us is the building up of the tower made of Legos blocks that must eventually tumble
      • With its crumbling, so will all those who participated in its building be torn down and destroyed as well
    • #2 – At this tipping point where evil has reached its zenith, God will remove those whom He has called out to be His own
      • I often describe us as the true church
      • Another name is the ekklesia, or the called-out assembly of the congregation
      • We are God’s children
      • We are the Bride of Christ
      • Just as any good father would not give his beloved child a stone when he asks for bread or a snake when he asks for fish, so the Lord will not give His very own children – His friends (remember: Jesus calls us friends!) – over to the time of wrath for this world that is intended as a time of judgment for the redemption of Israel and as punishment for unbelievers
      • I say it often, and I’ll say it again:
        • It would be totally against the character and promises of God to require His believing children – Jesus’ beloved Bride – to go into the Tribulation
        • Those who say we’re destined for that: fine, let them go
        • Let them prep and gear up and get ready for the Antichrist
        • We who believe in the promise and the sound doctrine of the pre-Tribulation Rapture have a much better destination in store during those terrible 7 years
      • As Psalm 58:11 says:


Mankind will say, “Surely there is a reward for the righteous; surely there is a God who judges on earth.”


  • Will we believe the Word of the Lord that we who have committed to following Jesus are declared righteous?
  • If so, then we have a great reward
  • The rest of world: not so much

Danger Zones: Wombs & Hospitals

Events over the last couple years, and those in recent weeks, illustrate the two most dangerous places on planet earth at this late hour before the Lord’s return for His beloved Bride.  As the title of this article notes, these hazard zones are in women’s wombs and in hospitals.

Since the sanctioning by this nation in the 1973 Roe v Wade Supreme Court decision, unborn (some prefer the term preborn) children have been placed at much greater risk than ever before in history.  The highest court of our land unconstitutionally made a new law out of the penumbra of rights derived by implication that wasn’t theirs to make.  They effectively made abortion a right in every state of the Union and thus the law of the land.  Since that time, Christians and Constitutional scholars have rightfully argued that this decision was made up out of the imaginations of the justices with no true legal basis.  Our nation has been at moral war since that time as 70 Million unborn children have been killed in the womb.  In comparison, worldwide since 1980 this number is at least 1.6 Billion children who have been murdered in this way.

The hope of many Christians over the years has been that Roe v Wade would be overturned by a conservative court.  It now appears that this will be the case with the current, leaked draft opinion against Roe and another prior case known as Casey v Planned Parenthood.  If this decision holds, how the Left will ultimately respond is something at which we can only guess.  However, given the ginned-up radical mobs already protesting, the crazed Democrat politicians vowing to pack the Court, and even the doxxing of personal information for the conservative justices so as to intimate them, whether all the judges voting to overturn these cases stick to their guns with the final outcome remains to be seen.

The Left is already using the leak to rouse the ire of their base for the 2022 elections, which as of now have resoundingly shown a Republican majority would be elected in these midterms.  Of course, as I’ve stated elsewhere, I don’t believe we’ll even have these elections.  The globalists cannot afford the setback resulting from a red wave against all the egregious actions taken by the Biden regime.  I predict September will be the crucial month when many of our liberties will be snatched away and darkness closes in upon our nation.

What we’re seeing in the inflamed rhetoric and mob actions (i.e. riots) already occurring is that the Left has such bloodlust that it will stop at nothing to achieve its demonic ends.  Women MUST have the ability to murder their children in the womb.  They even want to have a grace period after birth of several weeks to decide whether to keep the child or dispose of it.  This is the hill the Left will die on.  It’s so important to them that they maintain the ability to sacrifice their babies in the fire to Molech that nothing else in this nation retains any sacred value except this one issue.

We’re also now seeing articles about young women declaring they’ll become sterilized just as a response so that the potential of them having children is completely eliminated.  Is it any wonder the replacement birthrate in America has slipped to 1.6 children per woman of childbearing years?  We are on a fast track downward to extinction.  The required birthrate to maintain a national identity is 2.1 children.

Whatever the outcome of this Supreme Court decision, the judgment of God will also come into play.  Since the very beginning He declared that mankind should “be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth” (Genesis 1:28).  Humanity is on a distinct trend completely away from this divine command.  God must bring correction to life as He created it.  In these current days, this means that His judgment in the form of the 7-Year Tribulation will soon come about upon this unbelieving world – upon these who clamor for the blood of innocent children.  The Lord must judge in order to be the God who rules over all.

There is a second place that was once a refuge but is no more.  It used to be that most Americans trusted their doctors.  If they needed to go to the hospital for tests or for an extended period, they believed that medical personnel in the hospital would care for them in the attempt to facilitate their healing.  This is no longer the case.

Back in the “old days” the majority of doctors worked in private practices and were generally only controlled by the government per their licensing.  That has changed dramatically in that small practices were bought out by larger ones and eventually most were acquired by various hospital conglomerates.  As a result, the preponderance of doctors work as employees of hospital systems these days.  Over the years, these hospitals also began accepting government funding for many purposes.  Now, hospitals are in thrall to the government, namely the CDC, FDA, NIH, etc. because of the massive amount of money they receive by adhering to the dictates of these organizations.  Just as with any welfare program, once you’re on it, it becomes very difficult to break away from the government teat.

Given this setup, it’s not hard to see how the vast majority of doctors, nurses, and hospitals have gone along with the COVID narrative.  They were told what to do and a lot of money was at stake.  When the CDC said, “Jump!” that’s exactly what they did.  The CDC said the only treatment regimen was what they ordered, resulting in the hospitals, their employee doctors, nurses, and everybody else in the system, obeying.

Hospitals were told initially that anyone with COVID symptoms should be sent home until they got worse.  Of course, the best approach is to treat early before an illness sets in, i.e. within the first four to five days.  That would have been the exception with COVID.  People indeed worsened, and when they returned to the hospital, they were hustled to the COVID ICU.  From there they were treated with the only approved drug allowed: Remdesivir.  It didn’t matter that Remdesivir had proven itself an abject failure in treating Ebola before COVID.  Even worse, it proved to attack the kidneys and had a better than 50% kill rate for all patients taking it.

Naturally, those on Remdesivir worsened and their breathing became even more labored.  CDC protocol demanded they then be placed on a ventilator.   In order to insert the ventilator, an extremely potent drug had to be administered to relax the patient’s normal response of tearing out the tube from their throat.  The drug varied from midazolam to fentanyl to others that were equally strong.  Naturally, if a patient already struggled to breathe and was given such drugs, the difficulty increased.  Between the foolishness of late treatment, to the use of deadly Remdesivir, to the final nail in the coffin with the sedative effect of the drugs used for ventilators, hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of people died.  And all their deaths were attributed to COVID.  I called this travesty Hospicide™ for hospital homicide – which is exactly what occurred, and continues to this day.

What used to be a place where people would go for treatment to save their lives became a kill zone.  Anyone who goes to the hospital in these current days is literally taking his life in his hands.  The medical profession has become a cult of death.  A large number of those who go into hospitals hoping to be made well will probably never again see the light of day.

The prophet speaking the Word of the Lord described these times exactly in Isaiah 5:20-24:

Woe to those who call evil good
and good evil,
who put darkness for light
and light for darkness,
who put bitter for sweet
and sweet for bitter!
Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes,
and shrewd in their own sight!
Woe to those who are heroes at drinking wine,
and valiant men in mixing strong drink,
who acquit the guilty for a bribe,
and deprive the innocent of his right!

Therefore, as the tongue of fire devours the stubble,
and as dry grass sinks down in the flame,
so their root will be as rottenness,
and their blossom go up like dust;
for they have rejected the law of the Lord of hosts,
and have despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.

Everything is upside-down.  Previously safe places are no more.  It will only get worse from here.  Yet, God is still on His throne as He will be forevermore.  Note the last four lines above.  Those who perpetrate such wickedness will pay the full price in their accounting before the Lord.

As I’ve made the case lately, there will be no Great Awakening with the church reviving and causing the world to turn to the Lord.  God must judge the wicked – the profane and the supposedly sacred.  He must punish His church for turning from Him.  The wolves are out.  They seek blood.  Sadly, many of them will be found within the walls of the church.  God will not let this stand.

Be aware of these danger zones.  If you’re in a church straying from God’s Word, you do yourself no favor by remaining.  You will not rehabilitate that place.  Lift up your head.  Open your eyes to see the evil.  Turn to the Lord Jesus Christ and Him alone for your redemption.  When you can, open your mouth and speak the Name of Jesus to any who will listen.  He is coming soon – because He must.

Awaken Bible Prophecy Update 5-11-22: Why Post-Trib Rapture Isn’t Possible

I can’t for the life of me see what’s so attractive in the Post-Tribulation Rapture scenario that so many people believe.  In fact, a lot of adherents to this position get downright ornery when someone advocates for the sound doctrine of the pre-Tribulation Rapture.  As I’ve noted in the past, such believers in post-Trib have a tendency to spew Scripture so as to “prove” that they are right.  Just a hint regarding this: once you get beyond half a page of your various “proof-texts”, nobody is reading them anymore.  You’re wasting valuable computer bits in this exercise.

Actually, more disturbing regarding the fanaticism of many who literally despise pre-Trib is that some number of them descend into declaring that we who believe in this doctrine are demonic and in thrall with Satan.  There’s something seriously wrong with that.  Among other things, they accuse us of leading people straight to hell because believing in pre-Trib makes us unprepared for the girding up necessary to enter the Tribulation.

Frankly, the timing of the Rapture becomes an issue as to the character of God.  The loving and merciful God with whom I have a relationship wouldn’t allow His children to endure such a horrendous time that the Bible describes as one in which all mankind would perish unless God shortened it.  The God I know must judge and punish those who have CHOSEN not to believe and follow Him.  He must bring His wrath upon the UNBELIEVING world that worships any god but Him.  Why would He send wrath on us who have freely accepted the gift of salvation through the blood-bought sacrifice of Jesus Christ?  It makes no sense.

Beyond this very basic truth, there are a number of logistical circumstances, along with Scriptural facts, that successfully argue against the post-Tribulation Rapture.  In fact, when we look at how the end-times play out according to the Bible, post Trib simply cannot even work from a logical perspective.

We’ll look into this after we pray and give you a Scripture to consider.



1 Corinthians 15:51-53

Behold! I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed. For this perishable body must put on the imperishable, and this mortal body must put on immortality.


Why the Post-Trib Rapture Isn’t Possible


  • First we need to make sure we’re on the same page regarding pre- and post-Trib Rapture belief
  • The pre-Tribulation Rapture doctrine declares that the snatching away of true believers in Jesus Christ will occur prior to the Tribulation
    • It is based on Scriptural evidence found in 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18, 1 Corinthians 15:51-53, John 14:1-3, and various others
    • It is at an unknown day or hour – that is: it is imminent
    • It is the prelude to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb
    • It is the true believers’ antidote to going into the 7-Year Tribulation and unjustly suffering the same fate as unbelievers
    • And much more . . .
    • No, we don’t find the word Rapture in English translations of the Bible
    • The Greek word is harpazo
    • The Latin word from the Latin Vulgate translation long ago is raptus from which we get the word we use today
    • Both mean a violent snatching up or carrying away – which is exactly how various Scripture passages describe this event
  • The post-Tribulation Rapture concept says that the church must pass through the Tribulation period
    • Depending on which of the several post-Trib views one holds, there may or may not actually be a literal Tribulation
    • This view uses multiple texts to demonstrate its position
    • The Tribulation saints identified in Revelation are said to be those in the church who must pass through this period
    • Tribulations that believers go through in their general walk with Christ are not distinguished or differentiated from THE Tribulation
    • Post-Tribbers tend to believe in Covenant Theology versus Dispensational Theology
      • Covenant Theology is a systematic set of doctrine
      • It is a framework for interpreting Scripture that looks at God’s Word through a lens of the covenant
      • It often applies allegorical interpretations to Scripture
      • Dispensationalism – which is what most pre-Tribbers believe – tends to adhere to a literal view of Scripture and Bible prophecy
      • This impacts one’s view of Israel and God’s plan – or not – for it in the latter days
      • Generally post-Tribbers adhere to Replacement Theology, which essentially negates Israel having a major role in the Tribulation
      • In fact, it says that the church has effectively replaced Israel as to all of God’s promises
      • Thus, a definitive, Dispensational Church Age which ends, and the 7-year period of Daniel’s 70th Week, which is the Time of Jacob’s Trouble specifically intended for the redemption of Israel, isn’t acknowledged by post-Trib believers
      • In other word, there is no Church Age Dispensation – the church continues uninterrupted through the Tribulation
    • Much more could be said regarding these two highly incompatible viewpoints, but that’s not our primary purpose for today
    • I want to simply cover four main points as why the post-Tribulation Rapture position isn’t possible – and, in fact, is incompatible with good Biblical understanding
    • These four points are:
      • #1 – God’s judgment regarding the shedding of blood
      • #2 – The problem of the Restrainer
      • #3 – Believers in heaven
      • #4 – Transition from Tribulation to Millennium


#1 – God’s judgment regarding the shedding of blood

  • I’ve been stressing the issue of judgment lately in my Prophecy Updates – and I think – with good reason
  • As I’ve noted, the church seems to have little to no acknowledgment that judgment is coming
  • Many don’t believe that God must judge the world – because we’re looking at the world through man’s eyes – and not God’s eyes
  • It’s the same type of problem that Samuel experienced in the selection of Israel’s first king, as noted in 1 Samuel 16:7:

But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look at his appearance or at his physical stature, because I have refused him. For the Lord does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”

  • In the same manner, man sees the world and that there are problems – but in his eyes it’s not so bad
  • From this perspective, we’ll eventually fix it and all will continue on as before
  • Far too many Christians dismiss or ignore the fact that evil is so prevalent, and that the hearts of men are so wicked and depraved, that God’s wrath is kindled and His judgment is at hand
  • In fact, judgment MUST come
  • Reasons for this are plentiful
  • Primary among them is that sin is almost forgotten as the primary problem with man in this world and his relationship with God
  • As a result, repentance is a foreign concept
  • Without sin, there’s no need to repent
  • Moreover, when there’s no sin, there’s no necessity for God to bring judgment
  • If there’s no sin, all is good and the world can get back to normal
  • Unfortunately for those who think this way, God doesn’t
  • Hebrews 9:22 tells us:

 Indeed, under the law almost everything is purified with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins.

 Consider also what we learn in Genesis 4:10-11 in the aftermath of Cain killing Abel:

 And the Lord said, “What have you done? The voice of your brother’s blood is crying to me from the ground. And now you are cursed from the ground, which has opened its mouth to receive your brother’s blood from your hand.

 Murder is so egregious to God that when innocent blood is shed, the ground itself cries out to Him for vengeance and relief

  • Not only that, but when innocent blood is shed, a curse is placed upon the perpetrator
  • Now let’s think about the issue of abortion, i.e. the killing of innocent life in the womb
  • This is only one of many other issue we could discuss that has the same outcome
  • God has always seen the murder of children in sacrificial rituals as an abomination
  • Leviticus 18:21 lays this out very definitively

 And thou shalt not let any of thy seed pass through the fire to Molech, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the Lord.

 Notice that in the sacrifice of children to pagan gods, this profanes the Name of the Lord

  • Here’s a clue: when someone desecrates God’s holy Name, it won’t go well for him
  • In America alone, since Roe v Wade in 1973 we’ve officially murdered 70 M unborn children
  • Worldwide since 1980 the number hovers around 1.6 B children offered on the altar of Molech via abortion
  • I guarantee you that up till now, God has not accounted for these numbers by bringing His much-deserved judgment upon America and the world at large
  • The question then becomes: Will God bring such judgment?
  • The answer is a resounding YES!
  • In fact, He must
  • With the OT as our guide to God’s blessings and curses, we know that He reaches a point whereby He can no longer tolerate such abomination
  • Blood cries out for blood
  • Jesus’ atoning sacrifice does not negate this for those who choose not to accept it
  • All of mankind is guilty and deserves destruction for this heinous sin alone
  • But look what Jesus did!
  • He came and died for the sins of all of humanity
  • Those of us who CHOOSE to accept this free gift of His atoning blood for our sin are forgiven
  • He took our penalty that we all richly deserve so that we might be redeemed so as to come into the presence for all eternity
  • However, those who CHOOSE not to believe in Jesus by confessing their sins and humbly repenting of them must then accept the penalty of judgment from God’s wrath upon them
  • I wholeheartedly believe that the Tribulation period is the worldly precursor to eternal judgment upon all who refuse God’s mercy
  • What the Tribulation does is actually provide one final opportunity for all who have sinned against God – who are ALL guilty of the shedding of innocent blood – to repent and turn to the Lord
  • And we see this very fact in several passages in Revelation where newly minted saints have been martyred for their new-found faith and stand before the throne of God
  • The crime of murder by these new believers has been forgiven and forgotten because they’ve been acquitted of innocent blood by the shed blood of the Lamb of God
  • So here’s the $64M question: If true believers today, prior to the Tribulation, have already been cleansed by the blood of Jesus for their prior participation in murder, is there any need for us to enter this period of judgment for this same work of God to happen?
  • It’s a rhetorical question with the answer being: Of course not!
  • Thus a pre-Tribulation Rapture causes those who have been judged innocent and those continuing to be guilty to go each to their proper destinations.


#2 – The problem of the Restrainer

  • The major figure of note that we see in the 7-year Tribulation is the Antichrist
  • We see Antichrist first in Daniel 7 and 11 as the one who makes the abomination of desolation in the newly built Tribulation Temple, and as the king who proclaims himself god
  • He is the Beast who rises out of the sea in Revelation 13
  • He is the one in 2 Thessalonians 2:6-7 who is restrained until the proper time

 And you know what is restraining him now so that he may be revealed in his time. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work. Only he who now restrains it will do so until he is out of the way.

 What we see here is a Restrainer who keeps the mysterious man of lawlessness (2 Thessalonians 2:3) at bay

  • Proper Biblical interpretation of this verse demands that we identify this Restrainer as the Holy Spirit – He who indwells believers and the ekklesia, or the called-out gathering of the saints as the true church of Jesus Christ
  • In understanding each of these players in this end-times drama, logic requires us to state that the true church must be removed so that the Antichrist can come onto the scene
  • The only way for this to happen is through the pre-Tribulation Rapture
  • Thus 2 Thessalonians 2:8-10 comes to fruition:

And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will kill with the breath of his mouth and bring to nothing by the appearance of his coming. The coming of the lawless one is by the activity of Satan with all power and false signs and wonders, and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing, because they refused to love the truth and so be saved.

  • The Holy Spirit as Restrainer steps aside and allows this man of perdition to step onto the world stage
  • As we understand it, this occurs at the opening of the 1st Seal by Jesus Christ as the Lamb of God
  • Based on these Scriptures, Antichrist cannot appear until true believers are snatched away in the Rapture – which then effectively allows all hell to break loose on earth
  • More than that – it paves the way for God’s richly deserved judgment upon the unbelieving world
  • A post-Trib belief cannot accommodate the logic and logistics of this scenario


#3 – Believers in heaven

  • Most Christians have a flawed view of heaven
  • They think it’s passive and boring
  • They think that we’ll basically be sitting around on clouds all day strumming harps and eating heavenly bon-bons
  • They think that this place in the clouds is where we’ll spend eternity
  • Wrong – wrong – wrong
  • Let’s take these in reverse order
  • The reality is that we’ll spend only a limited amount of time in what we consider as heaven
  • We see the initiation of this in our famous Rapture passage of John 14:1-3

“Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also.

  • These verses reflect the Rapture and its aftermath
  • We go to be with Jesus in His Father’s house for a very defined period
  • We as true believers are the Bride of Christ
  • This is what this passage indicates in line with a Galilean wedding
  • We were betrothed to Jesus through the act of being born-again
  • Our salvation places us in the unique position of being Jesus’ Bride
  • We know historically that after the betrothal of a man and his virgin bride in Judea that a period of up to a year could pass
  • During this time the bridegroom – out of sight of the bride – prepared the place in His father’s house where the two of them would dwell
  • When the father determined that all preparations were completed, he told his son to go fetch his bride – which could happen at any time day or night – just as a thief will come unexpectedly in the night
  • Upon the earthly bridegroom suddenly seizing His bride, they returned to his father’s house where they spent seven days in seclusion consummating their marriage
  • In the same manner, Jesus will come for His beloved on the clouds at a time no one expects
  • He will bring us to His heavenly home where we will spend seven intimate years with Him
  • During this time, He will perform His other duties by raining down the wrath of God upon the remainder of mankind who didn’t know Him nor chose to place their faith in Him beforehand
  • At the end of this 7-Year period of Tribulation upon the earth, Jesus will come as King with all His saints, i.e. the beloved in Christ who spent the last seven years with him in seclusion
  • He will bring judgment upon all who remain who have not humbled themselves and placed their faith in the Lord during this time of great trouble
  • We know this final battle of the Tribulation as Armageddon
  • Following the death of all remaining unbelievers, many marvelous events occur:
    • There will be a 75-day period in which God cleans up the earth
    • The abomination of desolation in the temple will be removed
    • Likely the temple will be destroyed as having no future purpose
    • The Antichrist and False Prophet will be cast into the Lake of Fire
    • Satan will be chained for 1000 years
    • Gentile still alive among the nations will be judged as sheep and goats
    • Old Testament saints will be resurrected
    • Tribulation saints will be resurrected
    • The Marriage Supper of the Lamb will occur on the earth including the believing 1/3 of Israel who remain alive
    • Then the Millennial Reign of Christ begins
  • All glorified believers will participate in the administration of the world under submission to Jesus Christ for this 1000-year period
  • We may possibly travel to and fro from the earth to heaven, but our job at this point requires our earthly presence
  • At the end of the Millennium, the Lord cleanses the final sin from the earth with fire and initiates a New Heaven and New Earth
  • Our presumption is that this will revert the earth to an Edenic state
  • At this time, all of us in God’s presence will likely have new tasks – namely to do that which God instructed Adam and Eve from the very beginning in Genesis 1:28:

And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”

  • If this interpretation is correct, our lives will continue to be lived out on the earth in whatever form it takes
  • We will not actually be spending our time in heaven other than during those marvelous seven years for us and a horrible time for inhabitants of the earth
  • From this scenario, it becomes clear that a post-Tribulation Rapture makes no sense
  • Generally, the thinking of post-Tribbers is that the Rapture occurs at the end of the Tribulation sometime around Armageddon
  • It effectively becomes a quick trip up and down with many of these Scriptural realities I’ve laid out not all coherent


#4 – Transition from Tribulation to Millennium

  • The Bible is clear that humanity procreates during the Millennial Period
  • Revelation 20:7-8 tells us that mankind will become extremely numerous

And when the thousand years are ended, Satan will be released from his prison and will come out to deceive the nations that are at the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them for battle; their number is like the sand of the sea.

  • When Satan is released at the end of the 1000 years, he gathers this multitude of unbelieving mankind together – likely with the help of all the demonic host which presumably is also released with him
  • In this final rebellious assembly against God, the Lord dispatches them with fire and no more wicked humanity remains
  • Neither will any evil beings from the spiritual realm remain
  • Let’s go back, however, to the end of the Tribulation and the beginning of the Millennium
  • For human procreation to happen, men and women must be human – this is very profound(!), but a truth from Scripture for this time
  • If, as the post-Trib Rapture folks say that all believers from before the Tribulation, and those who come to faith in Christ during these 7 years, are taken to heaven following Armageddon, this leaves no mortal humans remaining
  • Why?
  • Because believers who are Raptured are given glorified bodies
  • We will be like Jesus just as the Bible says
  • In that glorified state, we will be like angels, just as Mark 12:25 says:

 For when they rise from the dead, they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels in heaven.

  • Thus, all believers are glorified and will not procreate
  • The question then becomes: Who are the men and women that will create all the millions of people described as though they were sand in the sea?
  • This is a conundrum
  • It creates a logical impossibility for a post-Trib Rapture event
  • A post-Tribulation Rapture would leave no one to populate the earth and the Scriptural prophecy could not be fulfilled – again this is an impossibility
  • All Scripture is God-breathed
  • As Revelation 19:10 declares:

For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

  • Scripture must be fulfilled
  • It must honor and glorify Jesus Christ
  • In this case, the only Rapture doctrine conceivable that glorifies the Lord is that of the pre-Tribulation Rapture because it adheres to Scripture by fulfilling it completely
  • The post-Trib Rapture position simply cannot work
  • It isn’t possible despite all the many so-called proof texts believers in this position throw at us
  • Let’s believe Jesus and Paul and John in what they said concerning this marvelous event
  • By doing so, we won’t be taken in by the imaginings of men and the faulty declarations they make
  • Let’s look up
  • Let’s be alert with great anticipation
  • Yet, let’s also go about the work God has given us while we wait for the soon coming of our Lord
  • The Rapture is imminent
  • Let’s show God that we actually believe this to be true
  • How blessed He’ll be for our faithfulness, and how much He’ll bless us in return!
