King & Counsel: A Case for Bill Gates as Antichrist & Yuval Harari as False Prophet

One of the biggest mysteries in these latter days is who will emerge as the Antichrist and False Prophet.  Because of the pre-Tribulation Rapture of true believers in Jesus Christ, we won’t be here to see how these positions are filled, but the intrigue swirls around those of us who study Bible prophecy.  Others in the church exhibit an ignorance to it all, or conversely, an “I don’t care” attitude because “it’ll all pan out in the end.”

I’ve touched on the possible identity of Antichrist previously in various writings and video Prophecy Updates, but here I want to present new candidates for these critical jobs as the world draws near to clamoring for them.  We must have – as Jan Markell says – “a man with a plan” appear on the scene as a needed savior in the eyes of those left behind after God brings us home.

Many names have been put forth including Emmanuel Macron and Barack Obama of late as possible Antichrists and the perennial favorite Pope Francis as False Prophet.  However, after some deliberation, and without further ado, I wish to throw the names of my latest candidates into the ring.  Let me present Bill Gates as Antichrist and Yuval Noah Harari as False Prophet!

I had previously suggested Harari as potential Antichrist, but it seems to me – given his fervor for changing humanity’s DNA that he seems more to me like an evangelist than the top dog.  But let’s first give Bill Gates a look-see.

Over the last year or so the idea that the Ten Kings of Revelation may not necessarily be current political figures – at least at first – has been a thought I’ve entertained.  The men at the heads of the Technology giants so prominent in the world today have so much power and influence that they could easily be called kings.  When we consider individuals such as Jeff Zuckerberg, Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, Larry Fink of Blackrock, and others, this becomes clear.  They all have such wealth that they can literally buy anything they please.  They’ve all been investing in endeavors that lead to the globalist outcome of a New World Order since they’re all in league with Klaus Schwab of the World Economic Forum.  These include transhumanism, media propaganda, digital IDs, you name it.  Fink’s Blackrock is invested in something on the order of 80% of all public companies worldwide.  Vanguard’s CEO is Mortimer Buckley – someone nobody knows.  Vanguard is even bigger and more powerful than Blackrock, as it owns part of Blackrock!  We don’t have to look too far down this wealth ladder to come up with ten extremely powerful individuals – all kings in the sense of what they control or influence.

Given this, it could make a lot of sense that the king of the ten kings is effectively one of them.  Hence, someone like Bill Gates slots into this category quite well.  So, what is it about Gates that I “like” in order to bump him to the top of the Antichrist list?

There are some websites that propose Gates has Jewish ancestry, but that doesn’t seem to have any factual evidence as confirmation.  What he does have is Romanish roots as coming out of English, German, and Irish/Scottish lineage.  This correlates with Daniel 9:26, which says in part:

And the people of the prince who is to come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. 

The implication is that Antichrist is this prince that will come.  The people that were prophesied to destroy the city and sanctuary were the Romans in 70 AD.  Thus, Antichrist has Roman, or at the least, European roots.

Gates’ family has a long history of favoring eugenicide, with his father having a leadership position with Planned Parenthood.  This obviously rubbed off on Junior.  Following the remarkable success Gates had at Microsoft, and the immense wealth he accumulated, he entered the realm of charitable organizations with his Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.  As many of us know, a major emphasis through this organization has been vaccines.  What we’ve also come to understand is that when he vaccinated Third World peoples, many were left much worse off than when Gates began.  His various vaccines in India and Africa caused serious injuries, infertility, and death.  This seems not to have affected his fervor in administering such drugs.  In fact, he is on record as saying that his vaccines should cause fewer births because not as many children will be needed, since not as many will die young.  That doesn’t seem to have worked out since his vaccines have done their share of damage, perhaps even surpassing the harsh living situations that cause childhood deaths.  He is heavily invested in the COVID vaccine industry and is on record as promoting them shamelessly, while also declaring there will be more pandemics.  Can anyone forget the closeup photo of him grinning maliciously while holding up a syringe?

Not unsurprising was the revelation of Bill Gates’ friendship with Jeffrey Epstein – he of Lolita Express fame that flew wealthy individuals to his Little St. James Island where they used and abused young girls in the execution of darkly secret, occult rituals.  Melinda Gates, herself a huge proponent of Planned Parenthood, finally had enough of her husband’s escapades and divorced him.  Daniel 11:37 may apply here:

He shall pay no attention to the gods of his fathers, or to the one beloved by women. He shall not pay attention to any other god, for he shall magnify himself above all.

Some have speculated this could mean that Antichrist may be homosexual.  Or, it could simply mean he has no use for women as something or someone to love.  Moreover, this appears to tells us that Antichrist will follow no god other than himself.  Bill Gates is obviously not one who looks to the God of the Bible.  Very likely he has made a deal with the devil.  It just depends on how big and grand a deal that is.

With Gates having positioned himself as the purveyor of vaccine truth through his extreme advocacy and investments, he’s seen publicly as a beneficent and charitable individual.  As such, many believe him and hold him in an exalted position.  In other words, he has a significant voice.  Believe it or not, this translates into trust.  When Antichrist gets in the middle between Israel and “the many” to confirm the 7-year covenant (Daniel 9:27), Israel’s trust of him as a facilitator will be necessary.  Given the prominence of Gates in the world and how he’s generally viewed, Israel working with him through the agreement process isn’t too hard to imagine.

Two other initiatives that Gates is funding are transhumanist efforts and the redirection of America’s eating habits.  Whenever transhumanism discussions arise, we see that through the Gates’ Foundation, he’s in the middle of it.  Additionally, through his acquisition of hundreds of thousands of acres of farmland, he has effectively taken them out of circulation for food production, in the process depriving more and more farmers of a livelihood.  What is extremely interesting in conjunction with this is the many investments he’s made in hydroponic and vertical farming.  This effort will likely lead to the insertion of “vaccines” into the DNA of lettuce and other foods.  Of course, we know he’s a big supporter of artificial meat products.  One of Gates’ mentors was Henry Kissinger who remarked in 1974: “Who controls the food supply controls the people; who controls the energy controls whole continents; who controls money can control the world.”  Overall, Bill Gates intends to be right in the middle of what people put on their dinner tables, that is, those left alive following the vaccine mandates in his quest to follow Kissinger’s pattern of controlling the world.

He’s already a player on the world stage.  I don’t think it’s a stretch to envision the elevation of Bill Gates into that of king of the world in the person of Antichrist.


When I first started thinking about Yuval Harari, it was as a possible Antichrist.  However, the more I looked at him, the more he seems, not so much as the individual who will be the primary leader, but as one who will convince the world of the wonders of following Antichrist as part of the transhumanist agenda.

This man already seems to have no soul.  He is completely without empathy, except for animals.  Of immense interest is that he’s Jewish and lives in Israel.  Maybe this could become a factor leading to Israel trusting his Antichrist buddy with covenant negotiations.  Harari is homosexual and a vegan.  Through his several books on transhumanism, he has reached millions with the message that there is no God, Jesus Christ is fake news, and humanity must change in order to adapt for the future.  Better yet, he has stated that most of humanity must be culled to eliminate a massive number of people.  The human body itself is limited and not marvelous at all in his estimation, being just a collection of cells, etc. that randomly came together.  This leads to his view that we have no purpose.  Some humans are exceptional; most are nothing but worthless eaters.  A LOT of people buy into this philosophy and are enthralled and energized by Harari.

He has no religion other than humanism and the grand idea that we must alter our bodies through silicon, artificial intelligence, and biotechnology to achieve what we can become.  The global government must maintain complete surveillance over mankind so that elites can engineer the trajectory of life for all people.  Ultimately, we will upgrade humans – those who are deemed worthy – to become gods.

Doesn’t this sound a lot like the man who will be strong counsel to Antichrist and work toward his objectives?  Can’t you picture Yuval Harari presenting the image of the Beast to the world?  With his background in transhumanism, is there any limitation to this image that all will see and worship?  In fact, given the nature of transhumanism, for Antichrist to die and rise again seems right in line with its capabilities.  More appropriate for the False Prophet is that he’s the one who causes all to take the Mark of the Beast.  Very Harari-like in my estimation.

There is much more that could be said about both of our contenders for these exalted positions that are begging to be filled.  What we see with these men is a great desire to exercise supreme control, and gain the worship of the masses.  They’ve worked hard all their lives to attain the credentials by which Satan could elevate them to the lofty heights they seek.

The sad part is that whether it’s these men or a couple others who become Antichrist and False Prophet, they’ll believe initially that their many dreams will be realized.  What they’ll learn by the end of seven years is that which they’ve sought will devolve into the worst nightmare scenario one could ever imagine.

Such is Satan’s bitter fruit.

Awaken Bible Prophecy Update 5-4-22: Revival or Judgment?

One of the biggest lies that is propagated today – in both Christendom and the secular world – is of a Great Awakening.  I have no doubt that my stating this about such a popular subject would offend many Christians were they to listen to this Prophecy Update.  Of course, the truth of the matter is that those who believe in this deception (yes, I’m using inflammatory words to describe this) don’t normally gravitate toward Bible prophecy teaching.  Thus, few who need to hear why they’re being conned into this belief will listen.

Right off the bat, you may think that my speaking of lies, deception, and being conned in relation to the Great Awakening is rather harsh.  Hopefully, when we finish today you’ll think a little differently.

Bible prophecy is one of the least taught aspects of Scripture.  You’d think that with how the Bible equates Jesus with prophecy in Revelation 19:10 that pastors and churches wouldn’t give it such little attention.  After all, prophecy is literally equated with the testimony of Jesus.  Shouldn’t all Christians desire to know the witness of Jesus through the testimony of prophecy?  Apparently not, as it is one of the least communicated and understood of all Biblical subjects.

It’s for this reason that far too many followers of Jesus Christ believe there will be a Great Awakening, or to put it another way – that a great worldwide revival will occur.  This is in contrast to what the Bible actually says of these end times.  And what is that?  The world will grow spiritually darker and that God will exact judgment upon it for its unbelief.



One more time – as with last week – I want to state a disclaimer regarding the naming of my Awaken Bible Prophecy Update, specifically regarding the term Awaken.  Because so few in the church believe in a pre-Tribulation Rapture and many have a limited view of the supernatural in the Bible, I wanted to awaken folks to greater understanding of these things.  I try to adhere to a true Biblical stance based on my position as a blood-bought child of God who believes in Jesus Christ and Him crucified.  This word Awaken is at the heart of the Great Awakening which I’ve criticized often and of the Re-Awakening Tour that has crisscrossed the country the last couple years.  Both of these movements, which I comment on today, have a connotation associated with the name Awaken which reflect a number of beliefs that I do not hold.  My disclaimer is that I view the world through a Biblical and prophetic lens.  I separate myself from anything that varies from that in these other programs.  With that said, we’ll continue with today’s update.

We’ll examine this issue more fully in mere moments, but first let’s pray and read a Scripture to set our hearts right for this subject.





Romans 2:4

Or do you presume on the riches of his kindness and forbearance and patience, not knowing that God’s kindness is meant to lead you to repentance?


Revival or Judgment?


  • Right up front I want to state very clearly that Judgment is coming very soon
  • God is bringing judgment upon this world whether anyone wants it or wants to think about it – or not
  • Jesus came to take the judgment due to each of us upon Himself; however, just like ancient Israel, we have rejected Him
  • It resulted in destruction in Israel, and so it will for us
  • One example of Israel’s judgment comes from 2 Chronicles 36:15-16:


The Lord, the God of their fathers, sent persistently to them by his messengers, because he had compassion on his people and on his dwelling place. But they kept mocking the messengers of God, despising his words and scoffing at his prophets, until the wrath of the Lord rose against his people, until there was no remedy.


  • Notice that Israel’s rejection of God continued until there was no remedy – God had to act
  • It didn’t matter what the prophets said
  • In our day, it doesn’t matter what Jesus said
  • There is no difference
  • God must respond to such anti-God fervor so as to maintain the integrity of His holy Name


  • One other point as a preface to my message:
  • God’s response in regard to rejection of Him is not about the Rapture
  • it’s about Judgment
  • It’s not about escape
  • It’s about what God must do as a Righteous Judge
  • For those who think the only issue at hand for those of us who believe in a pre-Tribulation Rapture is that we’re looking for a way out – that’s simply not true
  • We see what the world is doing and realize that God must act
  • But NOBODY sees this
  • The church at large is completely blind to this fact
  • When you neglect judgment and think you must work to fix the world, you neglect to understand the times, and the commands that God has given His people for these latter days
  • When you realize judgment is necessary and it’s coming quickly, this changes your whole perspective



Q & Qanon

  • We need to put a little context into the rest of this discussion
  • First, let’s consider Q and the Qanon following that he had
  • Q arose in the Trump presidency and gave every indication of having a seat at the levers of knowledge and power
  • He would send out tweets known as Q-drops on a secure platform that were frequently obscure but often highly predictive with information that only someone close to Trump could know
  • Following Q became an art and a science, and a movement grew around that comprised of anonymous people – hence the name Qanon
  • These were patriotic Americans I might add – who appreciated the insights and hope that Q gave
  • I know that many commentators conflated Q and Qanon, but I didn’t like that, i.e. that many were speaking negatively against both as if they were one and the same – they weren’t
  • Personally, I thought that Q was legitimate and spoke much truth
  • However, he also had an end-game Great Awakening in sight that I knew – based on Biblical truth – couldn’t be true
  • Qanon took on a life of its own as people rallied under that banner and believed completely that there would indeed be this Great Awakening, i.e. a taking back of America and the dawn of a world free from Deep State actors
  • A huge part of this is the continuing belief that there is a PLAN in which Donald Trump will again resume the presidency
  • We were to trust the PLAN and all would be made well
  • The problem in this Q and Qanon movement is that they weren’t actually believing in and supporting a Great Awakening, rather a Great Deception
  • We’ll discuss this more, but the Bible does not speak of any such revival coming in the latter days
  • Anyone going down this road – whether Christian or not – is simply swallowing a grand lie of the enemy
  • In fact, this end game is actually right out of the Gnosticism playbook
  • Who else adheres to this?
  • This shouldn’t surprise you given my various discussions on this topic in numerous previous Prophecy Updates – if you go back that far with me
  • The New Apostolic Reformation – known as NAR – is a huge believer in the Great Awakening, in which Christians reclaim the world
  • Their scheme is to achieve the Seven Mountain Mandate
  • In the NAR world, these seven mountains are the seven primary power centers in society, which include:
    • 1) Education
    • 2) Religion
    • 3) Family
    • 4) Business
    • 5) Government/Military
    • 6) Arts/Entertainment
    • 7) Media
  • Once NAR has won this core in the culture by placing its people in top positions of these Seven Mountains, then the world can be made right and prepared for the coming of Jesus
  • In other words, NAR requires a Great Awakening – a worldwide revival – so that it can assume its rightful place and usher in the Kingdom of God
  • FYI – this is also called Dominionism and Kingdom Now theology



Doctors for Medical Truth (my label)

  • The medical profession has basically bifurcated in the last two and a half years
  • In other words, it has essentially split in two
  • On one side we have the establishment, comprised of hospitals, their paid staff of doctors and nurses, plus many researchers, scientists, etc,
  • This group – we’ll label it The Government Cabal – has been steadfast in its support of the government COVID narrative
  • Since these medical personnel are indirectly paid by the government through massive infusions of money flowing through hospitals and research facilities, they either naively or willingly ignore the proof right before them that COVID is manmade, the so-called vaccines are gene-altering, extremely dangerous drugs, and the CDC-prescribed COVID treatment protocol – which demands the use of Remdesivir and ventilators – are all killing or greatly harming their patients
  • Frankly, by this time, no one in a hospital who has seen the results of the damage all this has done has any legitimate excuse for continuing to work under such a regime
  • Such people might say they can’t quit their job because they’ll starve, can’t pay their student loans, etc. but the alternative is to knowingly participate in genocide
  • Where is the moral conscience of these professionals?
  • This Government Cabal within the medical field is highly complicit in destroying people’s lives, from the oldest to the youngest
  • The other half of our bifurcation is what I call Doctors for Medical Truth
  • Early on, a number of doctors and other medical professionals realized that COVID, the injections that were supposed to prevent the illness, and then the horrific government-directed protocols to treat patients were all wrong, i.e. COVID didn’t act like a viral disease, the shots modified people’s very DNA, and the one approved treatment drug – Remdesivir – has a 50% kill rate because of the damage it does to the kidneys
  • Why would any thinking, caring doctors or nurses ever use such a drug?
  • How many patients does it take dying day-by-day under your care to figure out something is wrong?
  • Well, these aware doctors over the last couple years have seen all this and acted
  • They spoke out, trying to alert their colleagues to the problems
  • What did they get for their troubles?
  • Threats of job termination and worse
  • So, these Doctors for Medical Truth went public
  • They did lose their positions on medical and research staffs
  • But they knew morally that they were doing the right thing
  • Among the doctors in this group are some I’ve highlighted in various Prophecy Updates, such as the 5 Docs comprised of including Drs. Sherri Tenpenny, Carrie Madej, Lee Merritt, Christiane Northrup, and Larry Palevsky
  • Other medical professionals in my self-described group are Simone Gold, Bryan Ardis, Jane Ruby, researcher Karen Kingston, and many more
  • These are medical professionals that have many years of practical experience treating patients and understanding the medical system
  • Because they’re horrified at what they’ve learned about all things COVID and where the global elites wish to take the world with this pandemic process, they rebelled
  • They couldn’t stay quiet in the midst of seeing the awful results of this evil narrative playing out before them
  • Here’s an important point about these doctors: they have experience and knowledge
  • What they are saying has been verified and validated by other doctors and researchers around the world
  • Let’s keep this in mind
  • As people woke up to the evil narrative being foisted on the world, certain individuals wanted to convey this information to even more people
  • As a result, numerous conferences have been held around the nation, among them Clay Clark’s Re-Awakening Tour
  • The intent here is good and noble
  • There are too many people under the sway of the disinformation campaign the government and its willing accomplices in the media have propagated
  • However, it seems as if the doctors and other participants in this effort – whether Christian or other – have a steadfast belief that in awakening the populace, this will result in the afore-mentioned Great Awakening
  • It also turns out that a number of people associated with the Re-Awakening Tour have extremely New Age views and seem to be pushing them to a large extent
  • As a result, you’ve got people on the stage who may be solid Christians, others who have swallowed the Gnostic syncretistic pill of divine knowledge, and those who are flat out occult practitioners
  • The overall message that gets put forward is that we will win over the Deep State, the perpetrators of these crimes against humanity will hang, and that – effectively – a New Age will dawn in which people are once again free from government manipulation and its genocide
  • What this does is to taint the true Christians – and perhaps influence them with a non-Biblical message
  • The question is: At what point does the injunction stated in 2 John 7-11 come into play?
  • This says:


For many deceivers have gone out into the world, those who do not confess the coming of Jesus Christ in the flesh. Such a one is the deceiver and the antichrist. Watch yourselves, so that you may not lose what we have worked for, but may win a full reward. Everyone who goes on ahead and does not abide in the teaching of Christ, does not have God. Whoever abides in the teaching has both the Father and the Son. If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not receive him into your house or give him any greeting, for whoever greets him takes part in his wicked works.


  • Based on this passage, does sharing the stage with someone who takes part in the deception of Gnostic teaching apply only if they come to your house, so to speak, or if you both appear in the same venue as if you’re united on the same spiritual side?
  • This is a big problem, and it’s damaging the message of the evils of the COVID narrative among discerning Christians who want nothing to do with anything coming from non-Christians



New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) & Its Great Awakening (church)

  • NAR belief starts out with declaring that certain men and women today are God’s anointed apostles and prophets
  • It states that over the years, the church lost or forgot that these types of individuals were supposed to be over all other churches in all denominations
  • These so-called apostles and prophets are supposedly bringing new revelations to the world under God’s guidance
  • Those churches that don’t submit to this structure will lose the blessings of God
  • As purveyors of God’s will they have the prerogative to be wrong, i.e. to misunderstand, what God is saying
  • Thus, if they make a prophecy in the Name of the Lord, and it doesn’t come to pass, there’s no problem with that
  • Additionally, they cannot be criticized for these errors or in any other way
  • They appropriate 1 Chronicles 16:22 as insulation in this regard:


“Touch not my anointed ones,
do my prophets no harm!”


  • Of course, using this statement for their own purposes completely disregards the context in which it was said
  • The ark of the covenant had been brought up to Jerusalem to be placed in the tabernacle
  • This verse was part of a song of thanksgiving that recounted how God delivered the people of Israel into the land
  • It has nothing to do with the church in a forward-looking manner
  • This is one of many such problems in the church today
  • People don’t read the Bible, and so when someone comes along and takes something like this verse out of context, they believe it must be true because it’s from the Bible
  • NAR beliefs create many such errors
  • The one error I really want to highlight today is the thinking that a Great Awakening in the church and in the world is right around the corner
  • This seems to come from a belief in preterism and/or partial preterism
  • Basically, the thinking in preterism is that most or all of Bible prophecy was fulfilled by the end of the 1st century with the death of the apostles
  • Thus, in the most severe interpretations of preterism, the Tribulation and even the Rapture, are not future events
  • Many preterists also hold to the view of Replacement Theology
  • This is the belief that the church has replaced Israel and all the promises to Israel were fulfilled in the time of Joshua
  • Given this thinking, then obviously the church must rise up and be victorious in the world because there isn’t any coming judgment of God
  • This leads to the idea that the grandest of all revivals in the form of this hoped-for Great Awakening must occur
  • Here are 4 main reasons one particular adherent to a Great Awakening thinks it is coming:
    • #1 – Prayer efforts are spreading
    • #2 – Evangelistic urgency is increasing
    • #3 – Youth movements are rising
    • #3 – Holy discontent is stirring
  • Notice – no reference to judgment as a Biblical precedent
  • It’s all about us – now going forward
  • It also fails to see the great apostasy within the church and, in fact, the excessive growth of non-Christian worldviews
  • Many people – not at all related to the NAR movement – have picked up on this idea of a Great Awakening
  • Because they love the concept of revival – and since there were great revivals in the past – surely another in coming soon
  • After all – Jonah preached to the wicked city of Nineveh and it had revival
  • Why not us – why not now?
  • This brings us to one more critical point
  • These people want revival
  • They want a Great Awakening
  • They talk about taking back the culture
  • They talk about youth and holy discontent
  • But how much do they talk about repentance?
  • Anyone who understands the character of God realizes that repentance must be at the heart of any redemptive move of the Spirit
  • However, along with no one speaking of judgment, neither do they talk about sin
  • Churches today don’t bring up sin because it offends people
  • Thus, there can be no repentance
  • Without repentance, there will be judgment
  • Many Christian advocates of a Great Awakening cite the evil city of Nineveh
  • They say that if God would relent from destroying that wicked people, then surely He’ll refrain from harming America
  • However, they neglect the part in the narrative of Jonah whereby the king repented and all the people did likewise
  • In other words, repentance started at the top and was the model for the people
  • Let’s put it this way concerning a Great Awakening in our time in which God stays His hand of judgment:
  • When we see Joe Biden, the liberal elites in Washington DC, and their many sycophants throughout our nation repenting and humbling themselves before God, then maybe I’ll believe that such a revival will take place



Gnosticism & Its Great Awakening (secular/New Age)

  • The belief in a Great Awakening isn’t limited to NAR and other believers in the church who have appropriated this idea and integrated it into their own theology
  • It’s also a major driver among the secular and/or New Age crowd
  • As I mentioned earlier, it’s a part of the Q and Qanon thinking
  • As Pastor JD Farag articulated in a recent Prophecy Update, Gnosticism is alive and well
  • At its core, Gnosticism believes that Satan is the good guy
  • He was trying to bring enlightenment to Adam and Eve in the Garden and nasty old Yahweh tried to prevent this
  • Satan is actually Lucifer – the light-bearer
  • Of course, it is Lucifer, through the actions of his followers, who will usher in utopia on earth through the Great Awakening
  • This means that these non-Christians must work toward this end to gain divine knowledge
  • They can be good people and desire good things for themselves, their children, and the world
  • And they think by rising up against bad actors like globalists and those in the Deep State, that they can overcome to achieve this dream
  • Biblical belief and understanding is obviously not at the center of what these folks adhere to
  • Their language may include such things as a Christ-consciousness
  • They may endorse ecumenicalism which wants to bring all religions in the world together as one
  • But true Christianity cannot be part of that because it is opposed to concepts and ideals such as these
  • Some in this camp also look forward to when either aliens in their UFOs or Mother Gaia in some manner disposes of all the Christians in the world so that the earth can be once more in harmony without such dissenting voices



Confluence of Christian and Gnostic beliefs

  • As I’ve pointed out a large number of Christians and those in what we could call the non-Christian camp both believe that a Great Awakening is coming
  • What does this mean?
  • Why is there such agreement between what should be widely divergent groups?
  • The simple answer is that since neither read nor believe the literal Word of Bible prophecy, they are looking at the world through a human and demonic lens
  • The worldview of these groups may be radically different in most aspects, but where it coincides is in the total lack of understanding as to God’s character and what He MUST do to be a Just God
  • And what is it that makes Him Just?
  • He is both a Merciful and a Righteous Judge
  • God MUST judge the world for its unbelief because of the very fact that He sent His One and only Son Jesus to die for the sins of the world
  • He reaches a point whereby all righteousness is what it will be in His eyes, and correspondingly where sin has risen to an unacceptable level such that it must be punished
  • What the NAR concept of the Great Awakening does is look forward to a period whereby Jesus returns to rule the world because the church has paved the way
  • This would generally be the Millennial Reign of Christ, whether or not they believe in a literal 1,000 years
  • What the Gnostic New Agers look for is a time of increased spiritual consciousness whereby each of us is awakened to the godhead within
  • This Christ-consciousness thereby makes us our own gods
  • There may or may not be a definitive leader taking us to this place, but if there is, he is one who must already be enlightened
  • Each of these perspectives deny the Word of God and what the Lord has said clearly will happen in the latter days
  • Each is highly deceived and is encouraged in that deception by the demonic realm
  • There’s no other way to say it
  • If good and true Christians are believing in a Grand Revival – a Great Awakening – they are being led down the primrose path by Satan and his minions
  • They are literally playing into the hands of Satan by dismissing the prophetic Word of God



What the Bible says about Judgment

  • Throughout the Bible we see God’s judgment – upon both His children and those who aren’t – for the worship of other gods through unbelief in Him as the One true God
  • Yahweh gave His Word – initially by speaking it – and then through the written page upon the inspiration of the Holy Spirit
  • As Paul in Romans says: No one has any excuses
  • Scripture is replete with the conditional statements of God that explicitly say what He will do as blessing for those who obey His Word and how He will curse those who rebel and disobey
  • Moses speaking to the children of Israel in Deuteronomy 8:11-20 captures this perfectly:


“Take care lest you forget the Lord your God by not keeping his commandments and his rules and his statutes, which I command you today, lest, when you have eaten and are full and have built good houses and live in them, and when your herds and flocks multiply and your silver and gold is multiplied and all that you have is multiplied, then your heart be lifted up, and you forget the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery, who led you through the great and terrifying wilderness, with its fiery serpents and scorpions and thirsty ground where there was no water, who brought you water out of the flinty rock, who fed you in the wilderness with manna that your fathers did not know, that he might humble you and test you, to do you good in the end. Beware lest you say in your heart, ‘My power and the might of my hand have gotten me this wealth.’ You shall remember the Lord your God, for it is he who gives you power to get wealth, that he may confirm his covenant that he swore to your fathers, as it is this day. And if you forget the Lord your God and go after other gods and serve them and worship them, I solemnly warn you today that you shall surely perish. Like the nations that the Lord makes to perish before you, so shall you perish, because you would not obey the voice of the Lord your God.

  • God has really only wanted one thing from His people – whether Jew or Gentile, as noted in Deuteronomy 10:12-13:

“And now, Israel, what does the Lord your God require of you, but to fear the Lord your God, to walk in all his ways, to love him, to serve the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul, and to keep the commandments and statutes of the Lord, which I am commanding you today for your good?

  • Micah 6:8 echoes this:

He has shown you, O man, what is good.
And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly with your God.

  • Despite the simplicity of this, man in his sinful nature says he WILL NOT do what God desires; rather he will do what HE wants
  • This triggers the negative conditional consequences that God clearly outlines
  • An example of the rebellious spirit of man is shown in 1 Kings 18:17 in the following exchange when Elijah and Ahab meet up:


When Ahab saw Elijah, Ahab said to him, “Is it you, you troubler of Israel?”

  • And why did Ahab speak so harshly to Elijah?
  • Because the prophet continually declared the apostasy of Israel and the judgment of God
  • Again, this judgment is shown in the prior verses of Deuteronomy 8:19-20:


And if you forget the Lord your God and go after other gods and serve them and worship them, I solemnly warn you today that you shall surely perish. Like the nations that the Lord makes to perish before you, so shall you perish, because you would not obey the voice of the Lord your God.

  • When God’s people – or any people – follow other gods, Yahweh’s absolute warning is that such people will perish
  • Why? Because they would not obey God
  • As I said earlier in this message – such judgment comes as surely as night follows day
  • Yet, what do we have as an attitude in the world and even in the church today?
  • God will not judge
  • A Great Awakening will come – either through New Age spirits or the God of the Bible
  • What could possibly go wrong?
  • Sadly, it seems as though there are very few voices crying out that God’s judgment is upon us
  • Pastor Dana Coverstone is one such voice who I’ve commented about frequently, as is Pastor JD Farag
  • The latest dream by Pastor Dana titled The Fire Tower Dream is one which gives a poignant warning of how blind and deaf the world and the church are as to what will soon happen (link below)
  • Similarly, Pastor JD has been spot-on regarding the evils that are integral to the COVID fiasco
  • This world cannot continue as it has been
  • As often happens the church has seized upon 2 Chronicles 7:14 as the prayer that will change everything – of course, we know the verse well:

 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.


  • Unfortunately, the church neglects the following verses in 2 Chronicles 7:19-22:


“But if you turn aside and forsake my statutes and my commandments that I have set before you, and go and serve other gods and worship them, then I will pluck you up from my land that I have given you, and this house that I have consecrated for my name, I will cast out of my sight, and I will make it a proverb and a byword among all peoples. And at this house, which was exalted, everyone passing by will be astonished and say, ‘Why has the Lord done thus to this land and to this house?’ Then they will say, ‘Because they abandoned the Lord, the God of their fathers who brought them out of the land of Egypt, and laid hold on other gods and worshiped them and served them. Therefore he has brought all this disaster on them.’”

  • Both of these passages are spoken to Israel in context, although it’s not unreasonable to apply the principle to us today in the Church Age
  • And if that is so, then we must see that we have been blinded by the promise of redemption when the declaration of judgment is actually upon us
  • To those who deny that judgment is coming, do you even see that we have been in the Church Age?
  • Do you see that this era must end so that God can deal once more and finally with His Chosen People Israel?
  • If you miss these facts, you completely misunderstand where we are in God’s economy and what MUST occur so that He can bring about the literal End of the Age



Summary – 4 Takeaways

  • Judgment is upon us
  • Here are 4 takeaways from this fact deriving from recent articles I’ve written:
  • #1 – In a blog post on my website that also appeared on Rapture Ready titled Fall 2022 Fallout (link below) I predicted that this coming Fall beginning in September will be very problematic:
    • Nobody wants to hear this, but I believe that things can only get worse from here in the world around us
    • Please keep this perspective in mind: the world grows darker but we as children of the living God shine brighter
    • I do not believe that the globalists can allow elections to even take place this Fall
    • As noted in my article – in one form or another – they have to create a lockdown situation, whether from cyber-attack, plague, or something else that leads to martial law
    • If they even allow elections to proceed, the Republican wave would be so great that despite massive fraud, the Democrats likely could not win and would thus lose both the House and Senate
    • This would thwart their Agenda 2030 objectives, so the globalists cannot permit it
  • #2 – In another blog post on my website that also appeared on Rapture Ready called Shemitah-Agenda 2030-Tribulation, I lay out a potential timeline for when the 7-year Tribulation will begin
    • Note: I’m NOT placing a date and time on the Rapture, although based on the Tribulation timing I do speculate and narrow down the season
    • My bottom line in this article is that the Jewish Shemitah may very well coincide with Daniel’s 70th Week, which is the 7-year Tribulation period, all coming together in 2030 just as the globalists at the WEF desire per their Agenda 2030 timeline
    • God may grant them this wish since they’re so focused on it
    • Of course, they’ll ultimately wish they hadn’t been so fixated on that year as it would be the ultimate irony
  • #3 – Per the issues I discussed earlier today, I want to encourage folks not to throw out the proverbial baby with the bathwater
    • Very knowledgeable doctors and researchers have brought forward extremely important information about COVID’s origins, the shots that masquerade as vaccines, and the death cult that has arisen in hospitals because of their adherence to government treatment protocols
    • My question is: Would you rather not know this information?
    • It’s true that among these brave medical professionals who have come forward at great risk to their livelihoods, many have New Age sympathies and roots
    • I condemn that and desire that all would come to a true saving knowledge of Jesus Christ
    • I’ve prayed for many of these doctors and continue to do so
    • What is ludicrous to me, however, is that because many of them do not hold true Christian views, it appears that the criticism coming against them because of this seems to also want to discount their medical discoveries
    • This is the case as I stated a moment ago of throwing the baby out with the bathwater
    • As an example: Dr. Sherri Tenpenny has appeared with New Age gurus Sasha Stone and Jason Shirka
    • Tenpenny declares her Christian faith regularly
    • So, we have to ask what in the world is she doing joining forces with Stone and Shirka?
    • Believe me, I get that
    • However, she has extensive experience in vaccines research and has bravely been on the forefront of denouncing the COVID plandemic agenda
    • Do we now discard all that she’s done in this regard because of these associations?
    • We can ask the same questions about a number of these other frontline doctors
    • Should it surprise us that there is great apostasy and confusion in the church?
    • Seminaries and the pastors they spew into the world have been corrupted with demonic teachings for years
    • Is it any wonder that the people sitting in the pews absorb this garbage?
    • This is all part of God’s judgment
    • I believe that we have separate the wheat and chaff of these people by using Biblical discernment
    • It’s true that few have this discernment these days because hardly anyone reads God’s Word
    • That’s on everyone who fails in this regard
    • Just as it’s on each of these doctors to get their theology right with the Lord
    • I’m simply saying that we need to use some common sense with all this and not completely disregard what these medical folks have discovered and revealed because of our disagreement with where they are in relationship with God or not
  • #4 – Despite God’s judgment that is so apparent all around us, the Good News continues to be – as always – that until the pre-Tribulation Rapture occurs, the window of opportunity is still open for both those saved to draw nearer to the Lord and for those unsaved to come to Him for the redemption of their souls
    • That window will soon shut and the world will be plunged into chaos
    • What will God think of those Christians who ignored His many warnings?
    • He commanded us to watch and be alert for the return of Jesus
    • Yet, so many are anticipating a move of God that will not – cannot happen – because of the lateness of the hour
    • God’s children continue to play in the sandbox of this world despite His telling us to shake out the dust and get ready for our home in heaven
    • As a reminder of this, remember what Jesus said in 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.

  • Shouldn’t we all be hoping and praying for the fulfillment of this marvelous promise?

Miracles in Islam vs NAR

God works miracles.  Why?  What are they?  What are they for?  Can we demand or declare them?  Is there any difference in how a large number of western churchgoers approach miracles versus those in Islamic nations?

The one thing I will emphatically state is that I believe in miracles.  The cessationists who declare that the gifts of the Holy Spirit ceased in the past are simply wrong.  If they only opened their eyes to the move of God in the 10/40 Window, they would know how far from the truth they are.

But that’s not our topic for today.  What I want to briefly consider is miracles that occur among Muslims and those which are said to happen among followers of the apostles and prophets of the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR), specifically the miracle of healing.

What is a miracle?  Generally, it’s an act of God that breaks the laws of the natural world.  God intervenes to display His hand in a situation for His own purposes.

What are those purposes?  Since the Lord wants none to perish but all to have eternal life, the primary reason for His miracles is to turn people to Him for salvation.  Miracles are to display God’s glory, His might, His omnipotence.

Jesus demonstrated this through His ministry.  When He and the disciples were crossing the Sea of Galilee and a storm arose with Him sleeping in the boat, the disciples thought all was lost.  In Mark 4:39-41 we see what happened next:

And he awoke and rebuked the wind and said to the sea, “Peace! Be still!” And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. He said to them, “Why are you so afraid? Have you still no faith?” And they were filled with great fear and said to one another, “Who then is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?”

This miracle showed the disciples definitively that Jesus was God.  Who else but Yahweh could command the chaos of the waters to be still that they would hear and obey?

Similarly, when Jesus went to the town of Nain, He exhibited a miracle that only God Himself could do as seen in Luke 7:14-17:

Then he came up and touched the bier, and the bearers stood still. And he said, “Young man, I say to you, arise.” And the dead man sat up and began to speak, and Jesus gave him to his mother. Fear seized them all, and they glorified God, saying, “A great prophet has arisen among us!” and “God has visited his people!” And this report about him spread through the whole of Judea and all the surrounding country.

The people saw that God was present in their midst, and they glorified Him.

But, of course, it was the numerous healings that Jesus did which caused such great crowds to congregate around Him.  In a time of ineffective medical care, many people suffered for years with their illnesses or afflictions.  The word which spread among the peoples was that this man of God confounded the laws of nature and healed even the most stubborn of maladies.  That tore down religious walls in people’s minds and hearts, making them open to the truth of the Gospel that Jesus brought.  In a time where the Law of Moses reigned and revealed only the sinful nature of man, the healings that Jesus did showed the grace and mercy of a loving God and a way to escape the bondage of their transgressions.

Today, we have a movement that seeks to make miracles commonplace.  Adherents to the New Apostolic Reformation believe that everyone should prophesy and that all should have the gift of healing.  So adamant are they in this belief that numerous prophetic schools dot the landscape here and abroad.  The most well-known of these is the Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry (BSSM).  There, students – who pay a substantial fee for this privilege – are taught and mentored in miracles.  They learn that God wants everyone healed, and that they can command healings to occur.  In these lessons they learn that angels are at their disposal to do works they dictate and that disease must leave when they so order.

They absorb and cherry-pick Scriptures such as John 14:12-14 which says:

“Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father. Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it.”

Thinking that the common man can do more and greater miracles than Jesus is a problematic understanding that BSSM and other NAR schools of prophetic ministry impart, as noted in David Guzak’s Enduring Word commentary for these verses:

Greater works than these he will do: Jesus did not mean greater in the sense of more sensational, but greater in magnitude. Jesus would leave behind a victorious, working family of followers who would spread His kingdom to more people and places than Jesus ever did in His life and ministry.

  . . .

iv. “What Jesus means we may see in the narratives of the Acts. There there are a few miracles of healing, but the emphasis is on the mighty works of conversion. On the day of Pentecost alone more believers were added to the little band of believers than throughout Christ’s entire earthly life. There we see a literal fulfillment of ‘greater works than these shall he do.’” (Morris)

  . . .

vi. There are some who believe that Jesus meant that individual believers can and should do more spectacular works than Jesus did in the years of His earthly ministry. We earnestly await proof of those who have repeatedly done greater works than walking on water, calming storms with a word, multiplying food for thousands, raising people from the dead (more than the three recorded in Jesus’ work). Even if it were proved that one person after Jesus had done such things, it still does not explain why there are not now or have been thousands of people who have fulfilled this wrong and sometimes dangerous understanding of what Jesus meant when He said, greater works than these he will do.

So what are these NAR schools teaching?

I’ve personally seen those in action who hold to the BSSM philosophy and approach.  I have no doubt as to the sincerity of these people and their love of the Lord.  However, attempting the healing of others seems as though it’s for its own sake.  In other words, they pray for healing, but I’m not convinced that it’s for God’s glory.  More than that, their method is to try to obtain healing inch by inch.  After praying for an individual, the question is asked, “How does it feel now?”  Prayers continue as the intercessor tries to gain little victories of healing.  With so much attention, the person receiving the prayers may indicate things are a little better.  Ultimately, the healer says that the person should believe and going forward act as though the healing has already occurred.  Is that person still “healed” the next day?

By what spirit are the students absorbing these lessons and thereby going out into the world?

Jesus accomplished full and complete healings.  There was only one instance in which it happened incrementally, i.e. with the one blind man who saw people as trees until Jesus finished the task.  But He always finished it.

If there are little incremental advances in a health situation, why should we think that the Holy Spirit only works partially?  Given the philosophy behind the NAR schools, perhaps the students aren’t going out in the power of God, but under a different spirit?

I want to contrast this with healings in Islamic nations.  First, let me also state that dreams and visions of God happen regularly in these countries because the demonic darkness is so great, and God has to get the attention of people.  He has to show that He answers prayers and comes to people’s aid when they cry out for help.  This is unlike the god of Islam they currently follow.

Because people caught in the bondage of Islam are also entrapped in a culture that identifies itself as Islamic only, and anything else is seen as an affront to Allah, the decision to follow Jesus is one that must be deeply considered.  The cost is high with the probable loss of family and friends, even persecution and suffering at their hands.  An impossible healing that only the God of the Bible could do is a powerful motivator to leave an impotent religion that only maintains power through intimidation and control.

God brings dramatic healings for the very specific purpose of changing hearts and minds and breaking chains that would otherwise never be severed.  Miracles in these places demonstrates that the One true God is worthy of worship.  Just like in the time of Jesus and the apostles, healings change the dynamics on the ground and bring people to a saving relationship with the Lord.

Can that be said of NAR and its students who practice the art of “healing”?

One other point: To be a child of God is to be blessed and to receive His favor when we walk in trust and obedience to Him.  We are friends of Jesus, but that doesn’t mean our position is one of equality or superiority.  It is one of supplication and petition.  He is God and we are not.  How then can NAR teach that its people can declare and command illness to flee?

In the magic arts of Eastern religions, New Age, and occult, the spirits allow themselves at times to be directed from the natural realm in order to reel in those who practice these things.  Is God One who allows such foolishness?  Does He pretend that mere humans can order Him about?  That didn’t work so well with Nimrod and his crew when they built the Tower of Babel.  Why should it be any different today?

If you want to gain better insights into the working of NAR, I suggest you do as we have done here.  Examine how God operates in a culture that is shrouded in darkness, and one in which the church can effectively do what it pleases.  I think you’ll find that NAR propagates a false understanding of God, if not even a false Gospel.

That should make you very wary.

Awaken Bible Prophecy Update 4-27-22: The Serpent’s Seed

The more we learn about the demonic efforts behind the COVID fiasco and the gene-altering injections that pose as vaccines, the clearer it becomes how Satan has ramped up his spiritual war against God and mankind.  We who follow Bible prophecy saw well before COVID that the signs of the times were converging just as Scripture foretells.  With the advent of the plandemic these last few years, and with the knowledge we’re gaining everyday about its origin and effects, how can anyone not realize that we are at the end of the age?  More importantly should be our response to this revelation.  Indeed, if we are in a time just like the Days of Noah which Jesus stated (which we are), and the climax of that era was absolute judgment, how can we today not comprehend the extent of judgment soon coming upon our world as we know it?

There are three prominent issues I’d like to discuss in this Prophecy Update titled The Serpent’s Seed.  They are:

  1. Genetic reproductive manipulation
  2. Bryan Ardis’ disclosure that all things COVID involve snake venom poisoning
  3. The implications of God’s judgment

All the things we discuss these days seem to be over the top and frightening, to say the least.  Thank God, we who know the Lord Jesus Christ have Him as our refuge and strength!  As we cling to Him, He enables us to see things for what they are and put them into the proper perspective.  The bottom line is that He is coming soon, and all that which the Bible prophesies concerning these latter days will come to pass.  We’ll explore that a bit more in our third point today.



Before I start my update today, I feel compelled to state a disclaimer regarding the naming of my Awaken Bible Prophecy Update, specifically regarding the term Awaken.  Because so few in the church believe in a pre-Tribulation Rapture and many have a limited view of the supernatural in the Bible, I wanted to awaken folks to greater understanding of these things.  I try to adhere to a true Biblical stance based on my position as a blood-bought child of God who believes in Jesus Christ and Him crucified.  This word Awaken is at the heart of the Great Awakening which I’ve criticized often and of the Re-Awakening Tour that has crisscrossed the country the last couple years.  Both of these movements have a connotation associated with the name Awaken which reflect a number of beliefs that I do not hold.  My disclaimer is that I view the world through a Biblical and prophetic lens.  I separate myself from anything that varies from that in these other programs.  With that said, we’ll continue with today’s update.

First, let’s pray and read a Scripture, then we’ll explore these three items.






James 4:4

You adulterous people! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.


1 John 2:15

 Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.




The Serpent’s Seed


  1. Genetic reproductive manipulation


  • Genetic manipulation is one of those over-the-top issues, as you’ll see momentarily:
  • The many shortages plaguing the world are causing serious disruptions to the lives of many
  • The causes are numerous, including supply chain disruption, and this seems to be the major culprit as to why infant formula is difficult to obtain according to the manufacturers
  • Here is what Rapture Ready recently reported:


Parents in the US struggle to find baby formula amid widespread shortages and rationing. One of the most important products for new parents is in short supply. Baby formula, which three-quarters of babies in the US receive within their first six months, is increasingly out of stock at retailers across the country. Supply-chain snarls related to COVID are contributing to the shortage of formula around the US. They include manufacturers having more difficulty procuring key ingredients, packaging hangups and labor shortages, with those factors combining to affect production and distribution. In addition, a major baby formula recall in January exacerbated shortages.


  • The reason this is a problem is that the medical profession, since the days of Dr. Benjamin Spock in the 1950s and 1960s, have said that using infant formula is just as good as breastfeeding a baby
  • This has morphed into some 60% of mothers that don’t breastfeed
  • Obviously, a shortage of infant formula will impact many parents
  • Mothers that haven’t breastfed may not be able to start
  • New mothers will need to do so whether they wish to or not
  • Overall, there are usually health benefits to breastfeeding, so the shortage – if it continues – should theoretically be a good thing – right?


  • That’s where the current problem of genetic manipulation rears its ugly head
  • In Episode 87 of Critically Thinking with the 5 Docs, the discussion turned to breastfeeding, as Dr. Carrie Madej outlined a disturbing find in her medical practice
  • There have been babies that are not thriving by drinking their mother’s milk
  • In fact, they won’t even drink it.


  • An analysis was done on the milk of one woman in this situation and it was found to be 80% inorganic
  • It contained substances that should not be in breastmilk, and the child rightfully refused it
  • Think about that: breastmilk composed of 80% inorganic materials!


  • Let’s consider this:
  • If infant formula isn’t available, then mothers will have to breastfeed
  • Either the child drinks what is bad if this is a common occurrence, or doesn’t drink and wastes away
  • I maintain that the globalists are fine with either outcome.


  • Of course, the mother with the inorganic milk had at least two COVID shots
  • We’ve discussed in prior Prophecy Updates how the blood of those who have been jabbed changes dramatically
  • It may clot throughout the body and/or it may seemingly grow what appear to be computer circuit boards because of the graphene oxide and nanoparticles that self-replicate and self-assemble
  • Cancers arising from these shots congregate in areas of the body with lymph nodes, particularly in the reproductive organs.


  • Nanoparticles have been a popular subject since Michael Creighton’s 2009 book titled Prey about nanotech gone rogue
  • I’m currently reading a 1998 book by noted science fiction author Ben Bova called Moonwar, in which nanotechnology is at the heart of the conflict in the story
  • To get a sense of the potential of nanotechnology as envisioned by Bova, here are a couple descriptive paragraphs:


Although nanomachines were assembled constantly for tasks as diverse as ferreting oxygen atoms out of the regolith and building spacecraft structures of pure diamond out of carbon dust from asteroids, there had been no runaway “gray goo” of nanomachines devouring everything in their path, no plagues of nanobug diseases.


Over the years Professors Cardenas and Zimmerman and their assistants had developed nanomachines for medical uses. Moonbase employees regularly received nano injections to scrub plaque from their blood vessels and to augment their natural immune systems.


  • Nanoparticles are subatomic in size
  • They are robotic machines that can be programmed just like any other computerized device
  • Nanobots are smaller than a virus which can be about 20 nanometers in size
  • A human cell is 100-1000 times larger than a virus
  • Thus, a nanobot – a programmable robotic nanoparticle – can very easily be manipulated to enter a human cell
  • As a result, nanobots can be extremely useful to accomplish something as beneficial as that noted in the book passage I just read, or they can be programmed to achieve an evil purpose in a person’s body
  • Because they’re so small, millions of them can be inserted into the body through various techniques and then increase in numbers as they self-replicate
  • As they do this, they can self-assemble into a desired structure based on their programming
  • When we see those circuit board structures being created in someone’s blood who has had the COVID injections, it’s not a stretch to identify them in this manner



  • To illustrate the thinking behind the use of nanoparticles in transhumanism, I want to read a passage from another book I’ve been reading, titled The Insecure Mind of Sergei Kraev
  • This novel takes place about 100 years into the future, and what I’ll read is a look back within the novel regarding a noninvasive procedure for implanting computers into human brains
  • This is fiction, but I guarantee you that this is on the drawing board:



You swallow a pill and a few days later you have an implant. Easy on the outside, anything but on the inside. The pill contains the implant core, nanobots, and nanocapsules with electrode substrate. All of these components are spirited across the intestinal barrier through a nanorobotic mechanism that creates and then cauterizes a miniscule opening in the gastric mucosa. The components travel into the bloodstream, migrate to the brain, and then, aided by another nanorobotic process, cross the blood- brain barrier. The core is implanted at the base of the skull, and a permanent, flexible electrode network grows and intertwines with the nervous system.


BTW . . . if implant by pill doesn’t blow your mind (not literally of course), maybe this will. Within the next five years, approval is likely for a fetal delivery system. Mother swallows a pill anytime in her third trimester, and three days later her unborn baby will have an implant.



  • I will say that it’s way beyond me how such tiny machines can be made in the first place and then to be programmed with computer instructions
  • However, nanotechnology is a real and growing field in robotics and AI with unlimited potential – both good and evil


  • One of the Days of Noah markers in our current time is the emphasis on germline engineering
  • This is a transhumanist effort to alter DNA at the reproductive level so that the changes pass through the parents to their children
  • It is the modification of reproductive cells that create embryos
  • This is done through the DNA editing technique called CRISPR, which allows for pieces of DNA to be snipped out and replaced with DNA from another source
  • This could be synthetic DNA manufactured wholly in a lab or it could be DNA even from an animal


  • One of the reasons that God brought the Flood to destroy the entire earth was exactly because this kind of experimentation and outcomes were being done in the antediluvian world after the sons of God (bene Elohim) came down from heaven and mingled their seed with that of human women as Genesis 6 outlines


  • One could absolutely speculate – possibly with great accuracy given all that we’ve seen come to pass over the last several years – that the shortage of infant formula is purposeful so that Mothers are forced to breastfeed
  • Given the high acceptance rate of the gene altering COVID injections and where their ingredients congregate in the body, i.e the reproductive organs, the probability is high that infants are meant to suffer harm


  • We can also consider the reports from fertility labs
  • The 5 Docs also noted that donated sperm and egg in fertility clinics were exhibiting odd characteristics and not flourishing in the test-tubes as they had in the past
  • Given our discussion here, that shouldn’t surprise anyone
  • If they are receiving sperm and egg from “vaccinated” donors, who knows what might happen?
  • Also, it’s these facilities in which the CRISPR DNA editing takes place as designer children are on the menu


  • Want a kid that has sharp eyesight?
  • Add a little eagle DNA
  • Want your child to be sharp of hearing?
  • Add DNA from a deer
  • How about producing a really strong child?
  • Why not try DNA from a gorilla?
  • Naturally, most parents want smarter offspring, so insert a little DNA from a Nobel Prize Winner


  • Our government, and many around the world, in black labs, i.e. those funded with off-the-record-funds, have more nefarious purposes
  • We can only guess what the super-soldier programs have produced in the last 20 years
  • When we hear about incredible scientific advances, they’ve usually already been perfected many years prior
  • What we publicly know is many years behind the actual curve


  • Adding to this is the intrigue of alien abductions and alien cattle mutilations
  • There are many people who have had legitimate alien abduction experiences
  • Many of them report the so-called aliens tinkering with their reproductive systems and in the process causing them great pain
  • Also, for years we’ve heard of strange cattle mutilations that cut away reproductive parts of cattle with surgical precision
  • What might the demonic perpetrators of these atrocities be trying to find, understand, or even extract for their use?


  • More nefariously, there are some of us in the Bible prophecy community who believe the Antichrist is a product of such laboratories and experiments – that he will be a hybrid entity on the order of the Nephilim from Genesis 6
  • Given his supernatural charisma and powers, should we be surprised if that’s exactly where he comes from?


  • The bottom line of all this is that the transhumanist efforts are alive and well, and they are working overtime to modify humanity into something it was never supposed to be
  • In fact, how long will it be before people receiving these dangerous drugs we call vaccines, or their children from the downstream effects, become something less than human, even though the stated scientific intent is for them to exceed what God created and called good?



  1. Bryan Ardis’ disclosure that all things COVID involve snake venom poisoning


  • In startling interviews with Stew Peters and Mike Adams, Dr. Bryan Ardis revealed that as a result of his extensive research, he is convinced that all the COVID phenomena have snake venom origins
  • Although the various interviews with him have gone viral, there is a not-unsurprising silence in the media at large
  • Even those outlets you might think would seriously consider the compelling argument that Dr. Ardis makes are strangely dismissive
  • For instance, Children’s Health Defense, which has been incredibly active fighting the entire vaccine issue, published two extremely weak articles scorning the Ardis claims


  • Others have taken a more cautious view – rightly so, I think
  • They want to see the scientific analysis as evidence
  • Critically Thinking with Dr. T and Dr. P in Episode 90 were generally open to the idea, but, as Dr. Tenpenny said, “Correlation does not prove causality [causation].”


  • I want to try to help us see this fact a little more clearly
  • In the context of the book mentioned called The Insecure Mind of Sergai Kraev, one of the characters is teaching a mathematics class to a young group of very bright students
  • She recounts the incident of a mathematician around the year 1600 who was working with prime numbers, i.e. those numbers that are not divisible by any number other than itself and 1.


  • The number 31 is one such prime number
  • For some reason the mathematician wondered if 331 was also prime
  • It is
  • Then he wondered how far this might extend when he successively increased each number by adding another digit 3 in front of the prior number, the next being 3331
  • So, he did the laborious math – remember, this is long before computers – and determined that 3331, 33331, and so on were all prime
  • He did these calculations all the way out to where there were seven 3s before the digit 1


  • By this time the mathematician was convinced that all further instances of adding a 3 to this number would also be prime
  • From his work with these numbers, he assumed that correlation did prove causality


  • However, he was wrong
  • If he had taken one more step and examined the number 333,333,331 (nine-3s plus the digit 1) – i.e. adding just one more digit 3 in front of the prior number – he would have learned that it is a composite number divisible by 17


  • The moral of the story is that to prove causation in a case, there must be more than correlation


  • Jane Ruby and Lee Merritt have also advised caution, yet open-mindedness to the claims
  • Perhaps as they study the evidence more deeply, they’ll come to a conclusion
  • It’s only by truly studying the facts – not just making off-hand dismissals or acceptance – that we’ll learn the truth.


  • Briefly summarizing, here’s my understanding of what Dr. Ardis found:


  • COVID is not a virus, although it may have virus strands in it
  • It did not originate from bats
  • Its source is synthesized (i.e. lab-produced), snake venom likely primarily from King Cobra and Krait snakes


  • Rather than spreading through the air, Dr. Ardis believes it has been spread through water sources
  • As an aside, as Dr. Merritt suggested, this may be the one issue with the greatest problems because of the logistics of contaminating municipal water supplies
  • On the other hand, fluoride is put into most water systems
  • Might it be possible for bad actors to contaminate the fluoride in many places?


  • Remdesivir as a treatment for COVID is made from snake venom
  • It significantly impairs breathing and has a better than 50% mortality rate
  • If someone goes to the hospital with “COVID”, he is put on Remdesivir, which makes breathing more difficult
  • The government-directed and paid-for protocol – what I call Hospicide (or hospital homicide) then demands that the patient be put on a ventilator
  • Typically, to insert this device, Midazolam or a similar anesthetic drug is administered to relax the patient so as to complete the insertion
  • Such drugs make breathing even harder because of how they affect the lungs
  • A great number of people hospitalized and subjected to this regimen die
  • Interestingly, Remdesivir is authorized by the CDC for two consecutive 5-day courses of treatment
  • Most patients die by the 9th day taking this drug and being vented


  • Adding fuel and evidence to the charge, Dr. Ardis’ research also disclosed that the mRNA “vaccines” are themselves created with synthesized snake venom
  • The medical literature that Ardis presented was voluminous


  • Monoclonal antibodies appear to work quite well against COVID
  • These are actually a form of snake anti-venom
  • Once the government saw their effectiveness, they actually withdrew monoclonal antibodies from distribution and effectively outlawed their use
  • The one thing I would say about them is that many doctors have expressed concern about their long-term effects
  • Just because they work and the government is against them doesn’t ultimately make them a good choice if they cause adverse effects down the line
  • As it turns out, the infamous PCR tests actually are very good, if nothing else, at detecting . . . snake venom
  • A strange aspect of all this is that the CDC is conducting waste water monitoring for COVID in many cities around the US to predict the next outbreak
  • They see that in gathering and analyzing the waste water that a COVID outbreak will occur in that municipality within the next four-five days
  • However, this is backward
  • If COVID is already in the wastewater, that should mean that residents in that city have already had COVID
  • But the CDC is saying that it won’t occur until several days later
  • Huh?  How about this as a theory regarding this phenomenon:
  • What if the bad actors have poisoned the water, and this testing confirms that the amount of poison is at the right levels which people are drinking
  • If so, then in those several days later, the populace will break out with COVID
  • It’s predictive of the hostile actions they’ve taken, which then makes the CDC look like geniuses to the public and cause people to rely even more on them.


  • Another interesting bit of evidence is that the medical literature warns that snake venom is adversely affected by nicotine and also zinc ionophores
  • Early in the COVID epidemic, smokers appeared to be least at risk – very likely because of the nicotine in cigarettes
  • Of course, the government soon after completely lied and said that smokers were MOST at risk
  • Zinc ionophores include Quercetin, Ivermectin, NAC, and Hydroxychloroquine, which cause zinc to more efficiently enter into the body’s cells to protect against disease
  • Any guesses what the government decried as foolish treatments, and in the case of one labelled it a horse medicine that humans should avoid?


  • There is a phenomenon of shedding or, more accurately, transmission, from people who have taken the COVID “vaccine” jabs
  • Ardis likened this to snakes shedding their skin
  • Many of us have assumed that somehow Spike proteins are at the heart of this, which can cause numerous and varied reactions in many people, including respiratory issues, vaginal bleeding in very young girls, and menstruation beginning in women who have long passed menopause
  • I personally know a very healthy man that traveled on a couple plane trips and when he came back immediately had a stroke
  • Fortunately, he actually recovered for the most part within one week
  • Four days after the stroke, he was back at the health club working out
  • Blew me away!


  • The “coincidental” tie-in for all these aspects is how the body reacts to snake venom and how all things COVID exhibit exactly the same symptoms, along with how much tie-in there is in the medical literature


  • The question becomes:
  • At what point do you say that maybe the literal exact match of snake venom symptoms to the COVID illness, Remdesivir, and the mRNA “vaccines” – along with all these other items – is because all have the same source?
  • Hopefully, the analysis will be done by credible scientists to determine the truth of the matter


  • Naturally, in this day and age, none of this stops at just being something that exhibits in the natural world
  • The demonic roots of this are incredibly deep, which is a major reason I can see for the truth behind all this
  • We can go all the way back to Genesis 3:15 to see this where God says to Satan, the serpent:


And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.


  • First of all, we’re dealing with a serpent here – the nachash in Hebrew
  • Nachash can mean serpent or shining one, such as an inhabitant of the spiritual realm
  • What do poisonous serpents produce?
  • Snake venom
  • This was also shown in Numbers 21:6-9:


Then the Lord sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people, so that many people of Israel died. And the people came to Moses and said, “We have sinned, for we have spoken against the Lord and against you. Pray to the Lord, that he take away the serpents from us.” So Moses prayed for the people. And the Lord said to Moses, “Make a fiery serpent and set it on a pole, and everyone who is bitten, when he sees it, shall live.” So Moses made a bronze serpent and set it on a pole. And if a serpent bit anyone, he would look at the bronze serpent and live.


  • The Hebrew word for fiery in this passage is saraph, which means both venomous and coppery, i.e. shiny
  • Thus, God instructed Moses to place an image of a venomous snake made from copper (i.e. shiny brass) onto a pole
  • When the people looked upon this when bitten by a snake, they didn’t die
  • The symbol of the snake on the pole is representative of Christ on the cross
  • When we look upon Him, we do not die, rather have eternal life


  • Back to Genesis 3:15 we have the wording that speaks of the seed of the serpent
  • The implication is that in the future Satan would produce a seed, or an offspring, or perhaps multiple offspring, that would contend with God and ultimately be defeated


  • Recall in our discussion of the first item on our agenda today, we spoke of genetic manipulation
  • One of the ways this is happening is through the supposed vaccines via the mRNA technology
  • Now, we add to that both actual snake venom and spiritual venom
  • How deep does this go?


  • Can we put it past Satan to use the symbolism of what represents him, i.e. a snake, to then contaminate the very DNA of that which God created?
  • Aside from all the overwhelming and compelling evidence that Dr. Ardis has researched and assembled, I think that this puts the proverbial icing on the cake
  • Spiritually, the attack on mankind comes from the most famous snake in the Bible through the most lethal use of what it produces in order to alter the very nature of man


  • People can dismiss this all they want, but when they do, I think they miss the big picture
  • I personally think that Dr. Ardis’ theory will be proven true



  1. The implications of God’s judgment


  • This point certainly ties in with the first two items, but it also goes again to those who disparage the doctrine of the pre-Tribulation Rapture
  • When the world has turned against God – whether Jew or Gentile – God eventually brings judgment
  • There’s simply no getting around this
  • The depravity in the antediluvian world was a direct result of the people turning completely away from God
  • This led to His judgment of the Flood upon the entire UNBELIEVING world
  • Let’s keep that word unbelieving in mind


  • The Northern Kingdom of Israel turned utterly from Yahweh to worship the gods of pagan nations
  • The One true God would not countenance this and brought His judgment upon that nation at the hand of the Assyrians to completely destroy it
  • Subsequently, the Southern Kingdom of Judah turned its back on Yahweh – as the Bible describes: even worse than what Israel did – and God allowed the Babylonian empire through His judgment upon the nation to sweep it away


  • After Israel rejected Jesus and grieved the Holy Spirit of God, the Romans first destroyed the sacred temple of God at His instigation in 70 AD, and then completely annihilated the Jewish nation in 135 AD so that it was no more.


  • When any people group disparages the God of the Bible and decides other gods are more worthy to follow, God’s judgment upon them is as sure as night follows day
  • In our current age, as the world has spit upon God and His only begotten Son, and when the church of Jesus Christ – the one institution that was supposed to honor God and revere His Name – also turns in great apostasy from Him, the question isn’t: Will God bring judgment?
  • No, the question is: When will God bring judgment against those who deny Him and seek after any god but Him?
  • Given Biblical history, judgment is a certain coming event
  • Yet, the church and many Christians apparently are turning a blind eye to the sure wrath of God prophesied in Scripture


  • God doesn’t forget
  • Even when a person or a nation goes back against their vows, God remembers and brings accountability
  • In 2 Samuel 21:1-2 we read that after King David re-established his throne following the rebellion of his son Absalom, God brought judgment upon Israel:


Now there was a famine in the days of David for three years, year after year. And David sought the face of the Lord. And the Lord said, “There is bloodguilt on Saul and on his house, because he put the Gibeonites to death.” So the king called the Gibeonites and spoke to them. Now the Gibeonites were not of the people of Israel but of the remnant of the Amorites. Although the people of Israel had sworn to spare them, Saul had sought to strike them down in his zeal for the people of Israel and Judah.


  • Why did God bring the famine to Israel?
  • In the days of King Saul, David’s predecessor, Saul had broken a vow that the children of Israel made to the Gibeonites hundreds of years earlier, which we see in Joshua 9:19-20 to not harm them, despite their deception:


But all the leaders said to all the congregation, “We have sworn to them by the Lord, the God of Israel, and now we may not touch them. This we will do to them: let them live, lest wrath be upon us, because of the oath that we swore to them.”


  • Because of this promise to God all those years ago which Saul broke, He punished Israel in David’s day!


  • When David toward the end of his reign decided to take a census against the will of God, the Lord punished him for it, as we see in 2 Samuel 24:13, and gave him a choice of what the judgment should be:


So Gad came to David and told him, and said to him, “Shall three years of famine come to you in your land? Or will you flee three months before your foes while they pursue you? Or shall there be three days’ pestilence in your land? Now consider, and decide what answer I shall return to him who sent me.”


  • David chose the three days of pestilence, but think about this:
  • For taking a headcount among the people of Israel against the desires of God, 70,000 men perished in that judgment


  • If God punishes so severely for – in our eyes – seemingly minor infractions against Him, what and how might there be judgment for the single issue of the killing of babies in the womb, in America and worldwide over the years?


  • The Amplified Bible says in Genesis 4:10 regarding Cain’s murder of Abel:


The Lord said, “What have you done? The voice of your brother’s [innocent] blood is crying out to Me from the ground [for justice].”


  • Innocent blood must be atoned for
  • Justice must be enacted in God’s economy


  • Here’s something else to consider regarding God’s judgment
  • There are times that He says for His people to go along with the program
  • If they don’t, He punishes them
  • The two incidents that come to mind are in Jeremiah 29 and Jeremiah 42


  • At the Word of the Lord, God told Judah that she should accept the judgment upon her and go into exile in Babylon
  • In fact, they were to settle down because they’d be there for seventy years
  • Many people did not heed the Lord, and He brought the sword, famine, and pestilence upon them


  • Subsequently, Babylon left a remnant of Jews in Israel to maintain the land
  • God warned through Jeremiah that this group should remain, and by doing so, He would bless them
  • They decided they’d be better off in Egypt
  • Because of this disobedience, God brought on these people the judgment of sword, famine, and pestilence


  • The point is that God does not mess around when judgment is due
  • He may delay it for a while, but it will come as He promises
  • In this day and age, we have Jesus’ Words of the coming Tribulation that correlate to what Daniel said regarding Israel’s 70th Week
  • Jesus warned very specifically for His church to keep our eyes open so that we are aware and waiting expectantly for His deliverance of us in the pre-Trib Rapture when He comes in the clouds


  • Yet, from personal experience, I can tell you that much of the church – absolutely true believers – are not taking heed to this warning
  • They are invested in the things of this world, whether they be family, politics, or even church activities
  • What they don’t want to hear – and even reject – is that God’s judgment is almost upon this world
  • Some of these folks say they are well aware of Bible prophecy because of past study
  • However, the immediacy of it seems to escape them
  • They fulfill Bible prophecy by echoing 2 Peter 3:3-4 which says:


Know this first of all, that in the last days mockers will come with their mocking, following after their own lusts, and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all continues just as it was from the beginning of creation.”


  • Just as I noted earlier, the judgments of God in the past, escape their conscious perception
  • They think that what’s going on today in the world has had many previous parallels, so this imminent judgment can’t be true
  • They have more important tasks in their estimation than watching for the soon return of Jesus
  • There are school boards to overturn, elections to win, and children to enjoy


  • These were fine objectives prior to this imminent end of the Church Age
  • Unfortunately, the church was absent when it needed to be very present, and now it’s too late
  • Consider the very long list of convergent signs that I discussed in my Prophecy Update titled Why Do You Fear? (link below).


  • Do you really think that winning a seat on a school board here or there, or getting a good candidate into office in a couple districts is going to change the trajectory of so much darkness?
  • It’s as though a group of people is on a mountain, and linking hands with the intent of stopping the tons of snow and rock barreling toward them in an avalanche
  • God has allowed the world to reach this awful point with such an immense amount of anti-God fervor because He has chosen now to bring an end to it all


  • The first two items we discussed today are integral to this judgment
  • Mankind is on the verge of no longer being human, and Satan with his minions are hissing in glee that their goals of overthrowing God and creating a species in their image are almost achieved


  • Surely the secular world will be surprised when the true church of Jesus Christ is Raptured in the coming days
  • Sadly, much of the church itself will be caught off guard
  • Given that Jesus commanded us to be alert to His return, and the church is disobedient to this charge, will that have repercussions?
  • I don’t know, but I’d rather keep my eyes where the Lord has directed me
  • Isn’t it better that we look to heaven and our true home than upon the alien world which Jesus has definitively said is a place we should leave behind?


  • I’ll give you one more thing to think about in this regard
  • After God’s angels rescued Lot and his family from Sodom, Genesis 19:20 tells us:


But Lot’s wife, behind him, looked back, and she became a pillar of salt.


  • Jesus then gives us a foreboding warning in Luke 17:32-33:


Remember Lot’s wife. Whoever seeks to preserve his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life will keep it.


  • Does this mean anything for those – even Christians – who prefer to look back upon this world?
  • I don’t know, but the consequences of yearning for her previous life instead of what lay ahead certainly weren’t pleasant for this woman.


  • Time is short
  • God has shown those who have eyes to see and ears to hear what is coming in the very near future
  • Let’s all make sure we’re living in obedience to the Lord according to every aspect of His Word
  • That way, when God’s judgment comes, it won’t overtake us as a thief in the night.

The Tattooed Cat – Ahriman – Gateways

Perhaps this article is a little self-serving, but I hope you’ll find my “coincidences” here of interest.  Over the years I’ve written a number of books, first beginning my writing journey in the 1990s when I had not yet entered into a relationship with Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior.  During that time, one of the books I wrote was called The Tattooed Cat after visiting a small town in Wisconsin with my wife.  Frank Lloyd Wright had a home he called Taliesin in that community of Spring Green that also housed a school for aspiring architects.  The somewhat quaint town itself and a particular church sparked my creative juices, and I proceeded to write my novel.  One of the key components was that I happened to see a number of cats as we drove around.

In the course of that work, I named my antagonist Marcus Ahriman.  At this point I couldn’t begin to tell you how I came up with that name.  Was there something having to do with evil that I searched and found on the internet?  Or, did it just come to me?  Regardless, when I re-crafted the novel following my conversion as a Christ-follower, I kept much of what I’d written but had to do away with the ungodly aspects and turn the story toward a redemptive message.  Of course, in this, there is a major and divisive clash between good and evil.

For my efforts with this book, I was given the Christian Redemptive Fiction Award, which I greatly appreciated.  Here are a couple paragraphs from Peter Younghusband’s review for this award:


This “cats are everywhere!” scene at the beginning of the novel is a great platform to introduce our main characters, Greg and Elena and why they have come to Green Springs. It is from here that Ritter shows his expertise at characterisation. I was drawn to Elena but not so much to Greg. I picked up that this latter character had some issues and these were revealed as the novel progressed. It is Elena’s well-developed character that becomes a mainstay in this novel as everything revolves around her reason for being in Green Springs and, as it is revealed, her crucial and pivotal role in the events that play out in the satanic manipulations and motives of Marcus Ahriman. But then again, all the characters in this novel are believable and credible to the degree of their involvement in Ritter’s plot arcs.

 . . . 

From the intersection of these arcs until the finale, I was exhausted and riveted, curiosity more than piqued! I wanted to know more about the mysterious two sisters, who really is Marcus Ahriman, what is the connection between him and Pastor Nesbitt, and what is it with all these cats! What will become of Charles Mayfair, is Greg really out of the picture or is there something suspicious going on with him? And then there is the sense of evilness that pervades everything to do with Marcus Ahriman and Pastor Nesbit. Is this just their persuasive personalities or is this due to something more? What is the connection between the new Millennium and an ancient artifact that places Elena and her mother at the centre of Nesbit’s and Ahriman’s attention? Who or what is The Tattooed Cat? 


Fast forward to today.  The last several years I’ve been reading and researching connections to the sons of God (bene Elohim) in Genesis 6 who descended from heaven to earth in rebellion against God.  Of late, as well, I’ve been learning more about transhumanism, or, even as I put it in a recent Awaken Bible Prophecy Update: trans-specie-ism (Transhumanism? No: Trans-Specie-ism)

All this comes together from my wife commenting on the name Ahriman in something she saw.  I thought she was referencing The Ahriman Gate by Tom Horn, but she remembered my character in The Tattooed Cat and was referring to that.  I recently read The Ahriman Gate, which deals with demonic gateways or portals to other dimensions, so that was my current point of reference.

What is it with Ahriman as a name or entity?  The World History Encyclopedia says:


Ahriman is the evil spirit in Early Iranian ReligionZoroastrianism, and Zorvanism, Lord of Darkness and Chaos, and the source of human confusion, disappointment, and strife . . .

Scholar John R. Hinnels describes Ahriman’s nature: “He is the demon of demons, and dwells in an abyss of endless darkness in the north, the traditional home of the demons. Ignorance, harmfulness, and disorder are the characteristics of Ahriman. He can change his outward form and appear as a lizard, a snake, or a youth. His aim is always to destroy the creation of [Ahura Mazda] and to this end he follows behind the creator’s work, seeking to spoil it. As Ahura Mazda creates life, Ahriman creates death; for health, he produces disease; for beauty, ugliness. All man’s ills are due entirely to Ahriman. “


Did I know this about Ahriman when I chose that name for my evil character in my novel?  If I had any clue, it certainly wasn’t to this extent; definitely not when I recast the story in a Christian light.  However, this description captures the essence of Marcus Ahriman.

To add further intrigue, note Younghusband’s comment on the first name of this character:

When I saw the surname of Marcus I instantly Googled it and was not surprised as to its definition. I have had this name in another supernatural and demonic novel and both usages amount to the same definition. So this gave me more clues as to who Marcus could be and where Ritter was taking this novel. I wondered if this was deliberate on his part or not, but surely this could not be just a coincidence or made up by him? Only Ritter can answer that one.

No!  I didn’t have clue!  Googling it we learn that it is another rendering of Mars, the Roman god of war.  Seriously, could I have chosen an antagonist who is as wicked as my character and inadvertently chosen a better name?

Topping this off is the gate or portal aspect from Horn’s book that also ultimately plays a final key role in my story.  It is believed – legitimately I think – that around the world there are gateways into the spiritual realm.  Is Jacob’s ladder one such that Godly entities use at that place where Jacob dreamed?  Was the Tower of Babel built at such a location where Nimrod and his followers attempted to reach the heavens so as to bring God down to their level?  When Revelation 16 describes the star fallen from heaven with the key to the bottomless pit, does he descend through a portal to the underworld?  The Tattooed Cat effectively shows one such place, and I assure you, I had no knowledge of these things when I wrote it!

From the “coincidences” I mention here, I can look back and see God’s hand in my writing and choosing of various aspects of the book.  Isn’t it true that in many instances like this we have no idea at the time, but only from the perspective of years?

God continues His work in this world.  As I write this, it is still daylight when followers of Jesus can do what the Lord desire of them.  Night, however, will soon fall upon the earth.  Thankfully our beloved Bridegroom will deliver us from this coming darkness.

Just as Jesus tells us in Luke 21:28:

Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.”

Awaken Bible Prophecy Update 4-20-22: Why Do You Worry?

If we’re saved by the blood of Jesus and are assured that our eternal destinies are secure, is there any reason for us as Christians to worry?  When we look at the world around us and see its spiraling descent toward the pit of hell, should we – or even more importantly – can we stop its downward progression?

First, we need to understand the extent of this dive into sin, corruption, and depravity that has overtaken everything.  Then, I think we need to step back and examine our response in light of Bible Prophecy.  Is there, or should there be, something we can do in a world gone mad?  And, is it really crazy, or is it actually adhering exactly to the template that God declared would happen in these latter days?  Based on the answers to these questions, we as Christ-followers should understand how we’re to react.

Let’s take a look at the many areas  and issues in which those pushing back against the globalist narrative would have to succeed to rescue this planet.  Is this something that’s even realistic, or are people tilting at windmills?

Let’s pray, read a Scripture and consider all this.



John 9:4 (NIV)

As long as it is day, we must do the works of him who sent me. Night is coming, when no one can work.

Why Do You Worry?

    • I am under the opinion, which I believe is thoroughly backed up by Scripture, that our efforts to redeem this world are misdirected
    • For anyone paying attention, all the signs of the end of the age are upon us
    • Their convergence is itself a sign
    • This Prophecy Update should be a review for many of us, but it’ll hopefully be a helpful reminder that because of what’s happening in the world, we who love and trust Jesus won’t be here much longer to deal with these awful things
    • Before chronicling all that is causing the world great fear and anxiety, I would be remiss if I didn’t comment once again on those who disparage the doctrine of the pre-Tribulation Rapture which is soon to occur
    • There is a concerted effort in Christendom to deny the doctrine of imminence which declares that Jesus could come at any time AND that He will come prior to the 7-year Tribulation
    • Many who consider themselves Christians have a HUGE problem with the idea that Jesus will rescue His true church before the Tribulation begins
    • I’ve dealt with this issue many times, and it continues to astound me that these presumed Christians almost seem like they WANT to go into this Day of the Lord where God rains down His wrath upon the unbelieving world
    • Somehow these people don’t get it that the Tribulation period is to punish UNBELIEVERS as a time of judgment upon them
    • The ironic thing is that folks like this walk right into what I describe as a failing on their part
    • The best example is from last week’s Awaken Bible Prophecy Update titled They Don’t Understand
    • In that video I explained three primary issues of key importance that pre-Trib Rapture deniers don’t seem to understand concerning why there MUST BE a pre-Trib Rapture
    • And then right on cue someone demonstrates my point
    • I’ve experienced similar pushback and objection previously and most people who do this have a tendency to spew Scripture as though that very fact explains their position, and anything else is an abomination before God
    • One such person did this last week in the comments to my Prophecy Update
    • He went on and on with so-called proof texts to “correct” me
    • He ended up throwing about 2800 words at me in around 6 pages of text considering 500 words is 1 typewritten page
    • Is this a little verbose and beyond the pale – or what?
    • I should have counted the numerous Scriptures he quoted to attempt to make his case, but I didn’t have the time
    • When I suggested he start a venue or platform of his own so that he can advocate for his position, he said:
  • “I am doing exactly what I have been told to do. . . I am to show what scriptures say, so more people can see what the bible truly says.”
  • It seems as if he’s been called to exercise the fruit of the Spirit known as annoyance
  • Frankly, after one or two of his rants, I tuned them out and stopped reading
  • I don’t think many other people would have the patience to read all his disconnected writings either
  • So I’m not really sure how this is a calling of God…
  • Okay, now that I’ve gotten MY rant out of the way – let’s discuss the varied fear factors that are causing so much distress


Fear Factors

  • Unprecedented weather
    • It seems as if every week we receive reports of historic weather events
    • At the website in the Prayer Center, Cindy who puts that together each week – and BTW does a great job in searching the news to keep on top of these things – usually has a section that reports on these weather incidents
    • Here are several headlines from a week ago to illustrate how weather issues have ramped up:
      • Enormous US storm could produce widespread severe weather this coming week
      • The Texas drought is the worst in years,
      • Record-setting arctic blast hits Europe, stunning spring crops.
      • In Australia: Major flood warnings issued as Sydney records a month’s worth of rain in a day (the third major flooding event this year.
      • In Brazil: Record-breaking rain hits Rio de Janeiro, causing severe floods and landslides
    • It’s like this every week
    • Is it any wonder people are concerned all around the world?
    • The question so many must be asking is “What is going on?” and it’s the unknown that causes them great fear


  • Climate Change
      • Of course, this is related to the weather events
      • One of the truisms we’ve been told ad nauseum for years is that climate change is caused by man
      • People with any sense have pushed back and pointed at the fact that the sun is a primary factor
      • And let us not forget that God may be trying to get our attention
      • However, despite the truth of these two things, man probably IS responsible in many ways for climate change
      • God allows evil acts by men to accomplish His purposes
      • The weather array known as HAARP – High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program – has been shown to actually cause weather disruptions through its powerful microwave emissions
      • I highly suggest you watch the documentary called The Dimming produced by (link below)
      • Evil men have been manipulating the weather to cause fear so as to exert their control over the world by implementing climate change restrictions
  • We have to do with less or the world will self-destruct in 10 years!
  • We have to reduce CO2 levels or we’ll all die!
    • Of course, this flies in the face of the fact that green, growing plants require CO2 to live and our exhalation of CO2 is a natural part of our God-given breath
    • Another aspect of this is the seeding of the skies with many toxic materials
    • What we see emitting from planes are often not contrails, but chemtrails
    • It has been indisputably proven that these deliberate emissions contain aluminum and even graphene oxide which we end up breathing
    • They also settle onto the land from which crops are grown and increase these toxicities in food
    • More than that they also infiltrate water systems so that we drink these materials
    • Is there a climate emergency?
    • Absolutely!
    • However, wicked men are behind many aspects of it and are propagating it – but only to the extent that God allows
    • Regardless, climate change is a terrific fear-inducer in much of the world


  • Unprecedented Drought
    • About 2/3 of America is in severe drought conditions
    • It’s requiring water rationing, and that leads to conflict
    • Foolishly – yet deliberately – authorities in the west won’t divert needed water to farmers or ranchers
    • Instead they either run it off into the ocean or send it to make sure endangered species don’t die
    • The water tables in the west have been depleting for many years, even going back to the 1930s when dust bowl conditions predominated
    • The Dust Bowl was caused by the government advocating the farming and irrigation of areas in the west that should never have been cultivated
    • The grassy plains where the buffalo roamed were plowed under and set to crops
    • It exposed the land to conditions that should have been avoided
    • All that led to that horrible Dust Bowl era and which is the current state of affairs
    • If people can’t grow food because there isn’t enough water, that’s a major issue and cause for fear


  • Global Supply Chain Disruptions
    • These were a problem prior to the Russia-Ukraine War, but that has only exacerbated the disruptions
    • Let’s not forget the worker shortage that caused the build-up of container ships floating uselessly in port harbors
    • Why so few workers?
    • The COVID pandemic lockdowns stopped work
    • Then the government paid workers to stay at home
    • When the lockdowns eased, many workers decided they’d rather stay home and get paid much the same as for working
    • On top of this the COVID “vaccines” started disabling and killing people as planned
    • And more workers simply disappeared
    • Small businesses couldn’t keep going
    • Large businesses required injections causing more issues
    • If you’ve got a non-working economy – which is absolutely where we’re at – that’s a huge cause for concern among many people


  • Threat of Nuclear War
      • The global elites love war and the media loves to hype it
      • Nothing sells news like fear
      • Also, nothing creates the climate for opportunity like a crisis
      • George Orwell in his book 1984 explained the ongoing edge-of-your seat process that governments implement in order to gain greater control over their populations
  • Oceania was at war with Eurasia: therefore Oceania had always been at war with Eurasia. The enemy of the moment always represented absolute evil, and it followed that any past or future agreement with him was impossible.
      • As long as there is a perceived enemy, the government can gin up patriotic fervor in the midst of fear
      • War is also a great distraction
      • Here we’re all told how evil Russia and Putin are, whereas Ukraine and Zelenskyy are morally pure and members of the kumbaya choir
      • Look at Russia and Ukraine through the lens of how Orwell described it
      • It’s all a show despite how deadly it may be
      • While this is ongoing, more booster shots are administered and vaccine passport plans are forging ahead
      • While we have our eyes on Europe, digital IDs and digital currency will soon be mandatory because we’re not paying attention
      • It used to be that nuclear war was a boogeyman of the left
  • All nuclear weapons had to be eliminated in America!
    • While we did that, Russia grew its nuclear arsenal
    • Now when Putin supposedly threatens nuclear war, what can we do?
    • Rather than look at the political situation and negotiate from a reasonable perspective, we advocate assasination and send weapons to Ukraine to make the situation worse, all the while sanctioning Russia and mouthing empty threats
    • There will be Nuclear War at some point in the near term
    • However, from a Bible prophecy perspective, I seriously doubt it will happen until the 2nd Seal in Revelation is opened and the rider on the red horse of war emerges
    • Most people don’t see it this way, however, so the war is an imminent threat
    • Moreso – they fear death since this world is all they know


  • Famine
    • All these factors already discussed lead to famine
    • Store shelves are already empty in many places in America and around the world
    • The aforementioned war contributes in at least two major ways:
      • Russia is a huge provider of fertilizer
        • Guess what isn’t being shipped around the world because of sanctions?
      • Russia and Ukraine are considered the world’s breadbasket because of the amount of grain they normally grow
        • Guess what activity is being disrupted because of the war that will lead to significant grain shortages?
    • Just add these factors into the mix with everything else
    • It won’t be long until America and the world experience famine conditions
    • Again, the worst part of this will come in the opening of the 3rd Seal of Revelation with the rider on the black horse
    • But I don’t doubt that we will see and experience great shortages well before the Lamb opens the Seals
    • If people can’t feed their families, what are they to do?


  • Depopulation Agenda
    • We mentioned this in passing before
    • There is a deliberate effort on the part of globalists to reduce the world population
    • This is in accordance with the commandments of the Georgia Guidestones
    • The intent is to reduce global population to about 500M people
    • That means a WHOLE LOT of people have to be eliminated – something to the tune of 90-95% of all people in the world have to disappear
    • This effort has begun in earnest through the COVID scam and the mRNA gene-altering experimental injections known as vaccines
    • The more we learn about all this, the more diabolical it becomes
    • I hope to address this in a subsequent blog post and/or Prophecy Update, but the latest in this arena is the revelation by Dr. Bryan Ardis that snake venom is the secret to the sauce – so to speak
    • I find the arguments compelling
    • Of course, the fact-checking, denial machine is already operating at warp speed
    • That should tell us something
    • Unfortunately, this knowledge – although extremely important and useful – will also cause more people to fear
    • Let’s see: if you get so-called COVID (which is made from snake venom and isn’t really a virus) and go to the hospital, you’ll likely die from their treatments of Remdesivir (which is made from snake venom) and being put on a ventilator
    • If you take the shots (which are made from snake venom), you’ll likely die or be adversely affected
    • If you don’t take the shots, and if you’re around those who have, you’ll probably be the recipient of snake venom toxins in Spike proteins that will shed or transmit to you from the vaccinated person
    • From that you have a good potential of developing what may be called Long COVID simply from the toxic effects of transmitted snake venom
    • If none of this gets you, it may be that snake venom will be added to your municipal water supply when the globalists want to target your community as Dr. Ardis has suggested, and you’ll experience some level of any of these effects just because Satan and his minions – human and demonic – hate you
    • Yes, there is a significant reason in all these things for people to absolutely freak out


  • Unparalleled Depravity
      • Oh, we’re not done yet
      • Genesis 6 and the days of Noah were just a warm-up
      • From the depravity unleashed in the world at that time through the rebellious sons of God, their Nephilim offspring, and mankind that went right along with the evil, God acted against all beings that had sought to disobey Him and harm His creation
      • We are in the midst of a similar effort that will also result in God’s complete destruction of those who seek to displace Him
      • The depravity of those days of Noah included cannibalism, sexual perversion that was off the charts, and the creation of chimeric beings that were combinations of humans and beasts, plus beast and beast of different kinds
      • The abomination was so great and the contamination so pervasive that only one man and his family had pure human DNA
      • Everything else on the planet was totally corrupted and polluted
      • What we see with the gay and trans agendas are nothing yet
      • Little children being indoctrinated into depraved sexual fantasies is only the beginning
      • Pedophilia is already being mainstreamed
      • Soon bestiality will be a major push
  • Of course we should allow intercourse with animals!
  • People have to release their sexual desires and frustration somehow!
    • Seriously – this will happen sooner than you think
    • For right-minded people, this phantasmagorian, horrific dystopia is a freight train coming at us through a dark tunnel from which there is seemingly no escape


  • Increasing Lawlessness
    • Lawlessness and depravity go hand-in-hand
    • Sin takes people into dark places
    • Satan and his demonic horde then help the process along
    • Sexual immorality is a major biproduct
    • So are greed, lust, and covetousness
    • Society has amplified these human sin characteristics and – in a sense – worships them
    • Society itself is then demonized as the culprit and reason for what these sins cause, rather than the root cause, which is sin that’s inherent in each one of us
    • Since the individual isn’t at fault, when he commits crimes that act out these sins, he is excused because society made him do them
    • When Rudy Guiliani was Mayor of New York City from 1994-2001 he instituted a broken windows campaign to address crime
    • The concept was that one broken window led to more
    • If kids running around the streets saw a broken window, odds were high that they’d take stones and break another
    • If you fix the broken windows, the temptation to cause more damage is lessened
    • Guliani brought this concept to other crimes
    • He actually prosecuted those who committed smaller crimes so that they wouldn’t expand into bigger ones
    • Guiliani actually brought law and order to New York City
    • During his tenure crime was at much lower levels than before or since
    • That approach has been decimated everywhere around the country by George Soros-financed city officials in positions of being able to address crime
    • Soros money has gone toward electing people who will turn a blind eye to crime and its effects
    • The thugs and culprits have been exalted and excused while the victims are run over roughshod
    • This has been shown in numerous cities where organized rings of thieves simply smash and grab in stores with no consequences
    • It has also resulted in terrible muggings in broad daylight of innocent people going about their daily business
    • The lust to harm others has increased dramatically and there is no end in sight
    • In a Californai community, the USPS has halted mail service delivery because so many of its postal carriers were being assaulted
    • If you always have to watch your back wherever you go, and peace and tranquility are impossible, you know that society has a serious lawlessness issue causing many people great concern


  • Transhumanist Agenda
      • I’ve spoken and written directly on this, and in passing, quite often lately
      • It is directly related to the last days, the days of Noah, and the rise of the Antichrist
      • Transhumanism has two distinct strains
        • One seeks to enhance man’s flesh with computer technology
        • The other desires to change man’s very DNA
      • Ultimately, I believe these will continue merging as they have been doing in the form of biotech which has been unleashed through COVID and its so-called vaccines
      • Those who advocate for Artificial Intelligence and silicon-based enhancements are working toward achieving what is known as the Singularity
      • This is the point of merger where man and machine become one, and a new species of man goes forward from there
      • Those who are working at the genetic level with DNA enhancement seek to modify man’s kind as made in the image of God
  • The bodies we have aren’t good enough in their estimation
  • They’re limited, they wear out, and they die
  • To get beyond our human limitations, why not enhance us to cause us to be better, stronger, smarter?
    • Through gene splicing called CRISPR, animal DNA can be merged with that of man’s
    • Chimeric enhancement can include many, many possibilities
    • Just a few are: giving man the eyesight of an eagle, the hearing of a deer, the speed of a cheetah, and the strength of a gorilla
    • Governments around the world have been working on super-soldier projects with black funding for years
    • Nothing is off the table with the pagan, God-hating scientists developing improved mankind
    • Part of this is to extend man’s life to make him immortal
    • If this sounds like man playing God, that’s exactly what it is
    • As these laboratory and real-world experiments continue, we’re seeing the merger of AI/nanotechnology with genetic manipulation right in front of us
    • The COVID mRNA shots contain graphene oxide
    • I’ve shown in previous Prophecy Updates the photos of a self-assembling and self-replicating process that goes on in the blood of injected individuals
    • It appears as if computer circuit boards are creating themselves throughout the bloodstream of many people
    • The end game of this with those who don’t die, rather live and are changed, begs the question – What are they changed into and where does it go from there?
    • We know that 5G has properties that enables it to communicate with people whose bodies have grown this electronic circuitry
    • This is creating a fascinating horror show developing all around us
    • To add to the intrigue is the theory that Antichrist will be someone who has been modified in some way through these technologies
    • He will be prepared also to receive a spiritual entity that can use all this biotech within his body to demand obeisance from rulers and populaces and even to come back from the dead
    • If you see all this that’s occurring and wonder at the impossibility of it being overcome, that’s enough to raise the hackles on the back of your neck


  • There are so many more issues that should be and are of great concern to people
    • Without making this video too long, a few more fear-inducing items include:
      • Illegal Immigration leading to the Destruction of America’s Character
      • The Advent of Digital Currency That Will Place Everyone Under the Whim and Control of the Government
      • The Absolute Lawlessness of Our Federal Government That No Longer Adheres to Constitutional Principles
      • I’m sure you can add to this list


  • Christian Apostasy
    • The final thing I want to mention is Christian Apostasy
    • What makes all these things worse is that the source of Godly restraint in the world is largely absent
    • This should actually concern everyone the most
    • It is the Holy Spirit and Him alone who is keeping back the tide of evil represented in all these convergence issues I’ve mentioned today
    • The falling away of the true church into apostasy of all kinds – aside from the milestone indicator of Israel – is the most deadly of all
    • We know that when the Restrainer is fully removed, that is the point that literally all hell breaks loose on this planet
    • We easily see that He has loosened His hand and is only holding lawlessness back by a hair
    • When God the Holy Spirit determines the time is right, all aspects of the globalist evil will rise and be in-your-face present – much more so than today
    • Anyone who doesn’t know Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord will then be living in a totally alien world, filled with supernatural signs and wonders that will destroy almost all of humanity as well as the planet itself
    • Yes, Christian Apostasy is ultimately the #1 sign that time is up for this world and those who reject the Lord Jesus as King and Messiah because it signals the end of the Church Age
    • For those who cling to the deception that there will be a Great Awakening prior to the Tribulation, when I examine Bible prophecy, I see that this is a useless hope because nothing in Scripture indicates such a move of God
    • When He will move and act mightily in bringing people to Himself is during the Tribulation itself
    • We know this because of the scenes we see in Revelation of martyred believers standing in heaven before the throne of God
    • During that awful 7 years is when people will truly be at wit’s end, broken, and crying out for deliverance
    • There’s a little bit of that now, but nothing on the scale as it will be when the plagues of God are unleashed at the same time that Satan is attempting to displace God
    • It’s the ugliness and horror of that time which will cause many to fall on their faces before the One and only Holy God


  • Conclusion
    • Given the times, the question for the day is: What else would you expect before the end of the world as we know it?
    • Wouldn’t all the conditions around us be so amplified and exaggerated as to induce the greatest fear the world has ever known?
    • We’re certainly well on our way to that heightened state
    • The Bible explicitly warns us that such times would come
    • Here we are
    • Given that, what in the world are so many Christians doing trying to improve the world?
    • There’s a law of physics known as the Second law of Thermodynamics
    • It states that everything runs down and deteriorates
    • If you’ve got an old car, you can keep replacing parts and keep it running for a time, but it’s still old and dying
    • For those of us who aren’t attempting to become Humans 2.0 through the efforts of the transhumanist technologies, our bodies are all wasting away and dying
    • Nothing can stop that
    • The fact is that this world is on its last legs
    • Why should Christians try to prop it up at this point?
    • Are we even supposed to?
    • Wouldn’t a better strategy be to forsake the world and yearn for heaven?
    • Shouldn’t each of us – rather than trying to fix school boards and corrupt elections – be doing all within our power to bring people to Christ?
    • Isn’t that a better use of our time and energy at this stage of the game?
    • Because – frankly – little time remains
    • The anti-pre-Trib Rapture people who deny this sound doctrine and try to convince people that we must go through the the day of the Lord’s judgment on this unbelieving world are simply wrong
    • Please review my previous Prophecy Update of They Don’t Understand to gain a clearer picture of this
    • The pre-Trib Rapture deniers can spout all the Scripture they want, but they don’t make a coherent argument
    • Let’s hear them reason and answer many of the points I bring up and see if they can convince you
    • My bet is that they won’t even attempt to use a logical rebuttal – because they can’t
  • So, the question is” Why Do You Worry?
    • If you belong to Jesus, none of these things I’ve discussed today should concern you
    • Yes, we’re experiencing the lengthy shadows of the Tribulation, and all these issues are casting them
    • But the true expression of these things won’t occur until after Jesus takes us home
    • Everything we’re seeing is foretold
    • Bible prophecy is 100% accurate
    • That being the case – like I said at the beginning – someone fighting against it is tilting at windmills
    • Just like Saul on the Road to Damascus who was kicking against the goads, those who resist the prophetic Word of God are going to get stuck by those sharpened ends meant to keep oxen in line
    • As children of God we have a duty and a task
    • It is to believe God and do His work while it’s still light
    • The darkness is closing in
    • All this I’ve mentioned today is part of that
    • But we who love Jesus have a joyful future
    • Why don’t we start acting like it and get ready for eternity?

Egypt’s Famine – Template for Today

Can we know the future?  Need we fear it?  Do we need a crystal ball to show what’s next?  For Christians, the answers to these questions should be Yes – No – No.  Yes, we can know what’s coming.  No, God has repeatedly told us not to fear.  No, the last thing we need is a New Age crutch.  We have the sure Word of God.  In Scripture, God has provided foreshadowings and templates though His prophetic Word to guide us into the knowledge and understanding of that which is to come.

The story of Joseph during the famine in Egypt reveals a future reality for us today.  After his redemption from prison by revealing the meaning of Pharaoh’s dreams, Joseph acted on the king’s behalf to preserve Egypt from the prophesied hard times.  During the years of plenty, Joseph assured that the store cities were filled to capacity and more with food.  Once the famine began, he successfully oversaw the distribution of the food, but it came at a great price.

Genesis 47 shows us that first, people used all their money to purchase food.  When they’d spent all their funds, they exchanged their livestock for sustenance.  After they’d given all their animals, the people sold their land in order to eat.  Finally, they sold themselves.  They owned nothing – not even their own bodies.

To consider our current circumstances in the light of Joseph’s necessary but drastic measures that stripped all possessions and human dignity from the people, let’s view some scenes that might occur in the not-too-distant future.  Also, we must not neglect to acknowledge that God allowed this progression in Joseph’s day so as to set up the circumstances for the deliverance of Israel in the Exodus.  What is occurring today, has God’s sanction as He orchestrates conditions for His judgment in these end-times upon the unbelieving world.

Genesis 47:20 sets up the scenario that brought the people of Egypt under total control of Pharaoh:

And Joseph bought all the land of Egypt for Pharaoh; for the Egyptians sold every man his field, because the famine prevailed over them: so the land became Pharaoh’s.

To illustrate what this might look like in our present day, consider some possible scenarios that people may encounter:


Gloria turned over in bed and discovered that Lee’s side was empty.  The red digits of the clock read 2:47.  Worried, she found him in the office with his head between his hands, sitting before the glowing computer screen.


He moaned.  “I don’t know what to do.”  He gestured at the display that showed their farm’s finances.  “It’s worse than I imagined.”

The thought of what she could say kept her from immediately responding, but she had to force out the words.  “We could take the government’s offer.”

“The drought is killing us.  There’s no fertilizer available.  Our land is nothing but cracked earth and sand.  I thought by selling our livestock, that would hold us over.”  He shook his head.  We’re so deep in debt, I can’t see a way out.”

“You remember in the 80s all the farm bankruptcies?  They had no choice.  Maybe we can at least exchange what we own to give us more time.”

Lee switched screens with his computer mouse.  “This is the offer they sent.  There’s no wiggle room.  In exchange for our land, they’ll move us to an apartment in the city.  Period.  We have to give up everything.  Once we do that, they’ll house and feed us.”

“Do we have a choice?”

“I hate it . . . but, no.”


Genesis 47:21 tells us:

And as for the people, he removed them to cities from one end of the borders of Egypt even to the other end thereof.

In Egypt, Joseph required the people to work their former lands as before.  They had to give Pharaoh twenty percent of their crops and were allowed to retain the rest for their own consumption.  Presumably during the famine years, not much came of these efforts, but the circumstances didn’t change once they exited the final seven years.  Pharaoh continued to own the people and all they did.  They owned nothing themselves:


The government representative opened the door of their new apartment.  Except it wasn’t bright and shiny.  The building was older.  Gloria had wondered on the way up in the creaking elevator if it would stall.  They might be stuck for hours.  Or days.  Would anyone even notice and free them?

The curtains were filthy.  Dingy linoleum on the floor absorbed what little light filtered in through the single window.  Some animal had shredded the old sofa with its sharp claws.  As she passed it on the way to the kitchen, Gloria caught a whiff of stale urine.

Her heart fell as she saw what she’d be faced with each day in preparing meals.  Then she remembered there’d be little to no cooking.  All they required to survive would be delivered to the lobby each mealtime for pickup. 

On their farm, she and Lee had saved for several years to replace the appliances and update the entire kitchen.  It had been her pride and joy.  This small and dreary galley barely fit two people.  She opened the refrigerator and drew back at the odor that assaulted her senses.

“This isn’t plugged in,” she said to the woman who’d made no effort to join her in the tight space.

The agent shrugged.  “We can’t spend money on frivolous expenditures.  Energy is expensive.  It’s been two months since the last people in here moved out – well, died, actually.  Why should we run electricity for nothing?”

Gloria gave a disgusted glance back at the grimy stove as she joined Lee and the government rep in the tiny dining area.  He said, “Isn’t there another place you can show us?”

“Beggars can’t be choosers.”  The woman extracted a sheaf of papers from her briefcase.  “Just sign right here and the place is yours.”

Lee’s shoulders drooped.  Gloria knew how badly he felt, as though he’d failed in his role of husband and provider.  They’d been required to leave everything behind: cars, farm equipment, their home for thirty years, and all its furnishings.  From what they’d heard, the man working with the government who’d bought all their prior possessions for a song was the largest landowner in the nation. He planned to bulldoze all they’d left behind and build artificial food factories.

Her husband took the stack and shuffled through each page.  “Wait a minute.  There’s a clause in here that stipulates if we have any firearms, we have to relinquish them.  I’ve always had guns.  We’re in the city now.  There’s all sorts of criminals running around.  How are we supposed to protect ourselves?”

“That’s not my problem.  Didn’t you give those up yet?  Are you going to take this place, or not?  If so, you have to comply.”

Gloria knew they had no other options.  The woman was right.  They were nothing but beggars now at the mercy of the government.


The question has been asked and answered as to what the general populace will do when they own nothing.  What will keep them occupied?  What will their lives be like when they don’t have to work because the government gives them everything?  For those in Egypt, some number continued to labor on their land.  It’s doubtful this would occur now.  Yuval Harari, the futurist and author whose influence is growing exponentially has spoken plainly about this:


The blaring TV worked as an anesthetic on Gloria.  She’d never watched much in the past while running their farm household; now she had little else to do.  Every now and then she’d glance at her waist and hips that had expanded from her lack of activity.  On the farm she hardly ever sat; now she seldom walked.  If it weren’t for the three times each day that she took the elevator to the lobby to pick up their meals, she figured she’d be pretty useless.

Kind of like Lee.  Working their land, he toiled early morning until late at night.  A farmer’s job was never done.  After a period of adjustment in the apartment, he’d found a treasure trove of video games that kept him occupied most of the day.  He likewise was putting on the pounds.

Early on he’d complained about boredom, but now Gloria couldn’t tear him away from the video screen.  Periodically he’d cry out in victory or defeat depending on how his virtual character fared in the metaverse.  Other than that, she and Lee had little interaction and less in common.

Gloria had heard that the manufactured food they ate contained various drugs along with essential nutrients.  She thought that might be true.  At first, both of them had been quite unhappy with life in the city in the confines of their apartment.  Over the months, that had changed.  Despite a passing concern, both she and Lee had come to accept their fate, even feeling a sense of satisfaction with their lives.

It was hard to concentrate sometimes and ponder such deep matters.  The thought of their being useless eaters surfaced at odd, intermittent times as a disturbing reality, but mostly the emotion she felt was happiness.


Moving people to the city has its challenges.  Those who are bored and restless are a threat.  Addressing this issue of what to do with all these useless people, Harari said: “My best guess at present is a combination of drugs and computer games.”  This is how little he values his fellow man.

The spiritual entities and the global elites propelling mankind toward their deadline of 2030 to accomplish the New World Order must act ruthlessly.  Controlling a global population requires less of it so that it’s manageable.  Just as the Georgia Guidestones laid out, the number of humans in the world must decrease in drastic measure.  Those that aren’t valuable and haven’t yet succumbed to the genocide agenda must be corralled into cities where they can be manipulated.

We inevitably cite George Orwell’s 1984 for the Big Brother surveillance and monitor systems that are being implemented in every connected device.  However, just as important is the deadening of the human spirit.  Aldous Huxley wrote of this in Brave New World, where the people were kept drugged and content through Soma.  How convenient for the overlords to lessen discomfort, relieve anxiety, and dissipate any stressful feelings so that the populace doesn’t feel any need to rise up in rebellion!

This is a dim and dismal picture.  Is it any wonder large numbers of people are waking up to the potential of where the globalists want to take us?  Before we reach this stage, they say, we must unite and fight back, peacefully at first if possible; or taking up arms if it comes to that.

The problem is the focus on this world and believing that it’s all we have.  Thus, there’s the understandable necessity to preserve it.  God is allowing everything we’re experiencing to happen for a reason.  He has shown in His inerrant Word that such times would come and get worse.  People can wake up, rise up, and fight until they’re blue in the face.  The Lord will probably honor Godly people and their misdirected efforts in this regard, but Bible prophecy will not be thwarted, whether by Satan and his minions or through the concerted efforts of determined humanity.

The convergence of end-times signs is present for a reason.  The point is near when God will judge mankind.  Sin and depravity are rising to unimaginable levels.  The transhumanist movement which intends to improve upon God’s creation because it’s too limiting is close to what likely happened in Noah’s day prior to the flood.  DNA manipulation so as to alter humanity is nearing its tipping point.  All that’s been experimented with in labs worldwide for many years is on the brink of being released.

The only light shining against this darkness comes from the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.  If we know Him and His Word, our preparations aren’t to save the world, but to rescue the souls of unredeemed men and women.  All the bad things we can imagine will come about; that’s assured.  The greater certainty, however, is the blood of Christ and the Gospel that gives us hope:  Jesus came, He died, He rose from the dead, and He’s coming back.

When we believe this, we live despite how Death and Hades desire to bring us down.  Let’s not waste our time trying to keep this sinful world intact; rather, let’s declare the glorious future in eternity with our Lord, God, and Savior!

Awaken Bible Prophecy Update 4-13-22: They Don’t Understand

Having espoused the pre-Tribulation Rapture for a number of years, via numerous published articles, my books, video Prophecy Updates, and in person, I can tell you that this position is in a minority within the church and in Christian media circles.  Based on the feedback I’ve gotten and what I’ve seen at large, there simply is little interest in the pre-Trib Rapture.  It’s as though the proverbial wet blanket has been thrown over this concept and most people have been convinced it’s not viable.  As a result, they dismiss it as escapism, or worse, as a Satanic delusion.

Those who don’t believe in this sound Biblical doctrine primarily fall into the mid- or post-Trib Rapture camp, or take the stand that there is no Rapture.  Another group is that which spiritualizes much of the Bible and/or believes most or all of Bible prophecy has already been fulfilled – thus a coming Rapture, Tribulation, and even Millennial Reign of Christ is generally off the table with them.

I’m not sure it matters which cohort people fall into who disparage the pre-Tribulation Rapture, but the one thing that seems certain is that none of them truly appreciate how awful the 7-year Tribulation will be.




Awaken Bible Prophecy Update 4-13-22: They Don’t Understand

Having espoused the pre-Tribulation Rapture for a number of years, via numerous published articles, my books, video Prophecy Updates, and in person, I can tell you that this position is in a minority within the church and in Christian media circles.  Based on the feedback I’ve gotten and what I’ve seen at large, there simply is little interest in the pre-Trib Rapture.  It’s as though the proverbial wet blanket has been thrown over this concept and most people have been convinced it’s not viable.  As a result, they dismiss it as escapism, or worse, as a Satanic delusion.

I’m not sure it matters which cohort people fall into who disparage the pre-Tribulation Rapture, but the one thing that seems certain is that none of them truly appreciate how awful the 7-year Tribulation will be.

A recent discussion I watched between a self-proclaimed Bible teacher and the owner/host of a growing conservative media outlet illustrated this fact.  I won’t name the two participants in this article, but you can watch the discussion for yourself here:

Those who dismiss the pre-Tribulation Rapture commit at least three errors that I’d like to highlight, to which the folks in the above video seem as though they fall pray.  They are:

  1. A lack of understanding as to the severity of the Tribulation
  2. Ignorance or dismissal of past and present persecution around the world
  3. Obliviousness as to God’s character and His promises

There are certainly other problems I could discuss, but these rise to the top in my estimation.  We’ll take them one at a time.


  1. A lack of understanding as to the severity of the Tribulation.

Much of the talk in both secular and Christian circles focuses on a Great Awakening of one type or another.  The belief is that the rising consciousness of many people – both secular and Christian – will cause such a backlash against the global elites perpetrating their nefarious Great Reset agenda that the good guys will overcome the bad actors.

Interestingly, many who hold to this Great Awakening are extremely perceptive as to the ruthless efforts to kill and maim people.  Not only that, but they see the transhumanist successes and know that a significant program is underway to change the very nature of man from that which God created to something supposedly better.  Many such folks are also aware that we’re in a titanic spiritual battle, i.e. our adversaries are not simply humans, but demonic entities.  They even acknowledge Ephesians 6:12, which cautions:

For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.

Despite the reality of the spiritual aspect of this war, the optimism of the Great Awakening adherents, and their confidence in mankind to overcome these obstacles, is resolute and absolute.

But here’s the issue: Wars, plagues, persecution, the Lord’s angels hurling down catastrophic plagues upon every aspect of the earth and life as we know it, supernatural beings and occurrences that torment and kill billions of people, are all coming.  Not only that, but a superman of sin in the person of the Antichrist and his sidekick in wickedness, the False Prophet, are on their way to deceive the whole world.  How is it that mankind is supposed to fight back and stop all these things?

Through the flesh, of course!  Note that this victory over the forces of darkness – whether human or spiritual – comes all through the efforts of awakened humanity.  With their eyes on the world in order to overcome, their rallies, lawsuits, election reversals, possible civil conflict, the takedown and hanging of the globalists, and even with a few prayers thrown in, men and women in the natural will destroy the established order.  They know the Deep State is powerful, but in their thinking, the power of the people is greater.

Throughout all this excitement of millions of people opening their eyes and joining the fight, one little thing seems forgotten.  What they plan and hope to attain is completely against what Scripture says will happen in the last days.

How do you miss the plain reading of the text that tells of world war, planet-encompassing famine, persecution unlike any ever before known, and deaths on an unprecedented scale (e.g.  spoken by Jesus in Matthew 24 and outlined in Revelation 6-18)?  What about the literal unleashing of hordes of demonic beings from the pit of hell?  Is there any acknowledgment of the fact that all these plagues are intended to redeem Israel and to punish the unbelieving world in order for God to make the way for the Millennial Kingdom, which will only admit those who have confessed Jesus Christ as Lord?

All this is a necessary cleansing.  It is also entirely a work of God.  Once more it seems as though a human works mentality has blinded people.  There is a spiritual purpose in the Tribulation that God will bring about – both for the good of those who love Him and the bad for those who choose to reject Him.  Conquering the Seven Mountains of the culture or any other such concept in which righteous man is the victor in this world is simply foolishness.  The Tribulation will the worst time the earth and its inhabitants have ever known.  No Great Awakening will change that.


  1. Ignorance or dismissal of past and present persecution around the world.

The church has suffered persecution since its inception.  Jesus said in John 15:18 that:

“If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you.”

Not only that, in John 16:33 Jesus tells His disciples, and us:

“In the world you will have tribulation.”

We who follow Jesus should expect these things.  They are a natural part of serving the One true God.  In fact, for much of the 20th Century, and now the 21st Century, persecution throughout the world has been more severe than at any time in the past.  It’s most clearly seen in the broad swath of the 10/40 Window, which encompasses most of the Islamic, Hindu, and even Communist nations, where the cost of being a Christian is exceedingly high.

Just to give you a flavor of the persecution our brothers and sisters in Christ experience, here are several brief examples from Voice of the Martyrs:

  • Jelem is a Fulani who gave her life to Christ in 2020. When her family discovered her newfound faith, they harassed her, beat her and eventually disowned her.
  •  Mariam, 18, and Sarah, 16, grew up in a Christian home and trusted in Christ at a young age. In 2020, the sisters were threatened and beaten after sharing the gospel with a Muslim coworker. Though the coworker responded eagerly to the gospel, others complained about Mariam and Sarah to their manager, who warned the girls to stop sharing their faith. He also took them to some Muslim men, who demanded the girls renounce their faith. When the girls refused, one of the men bloodied Mariam’s nose and locked up the girls. Mariam and Sarah eventually escaped and hitchhiked home. Since then, Mariam has suffered poor health, and the family has struggled financially because of the loss of income.
  •  Three Christians were killed on Feb. 25 in an attack on a predominantly Christian community in eastern Nigeria, near Chibok. The attackers, thought to have been members of the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP), also destroyed a local church building. The Chibok area has experienced ongoing Islamist attacks, in which many Christian women and children have been kidnapped. 

Let me give you one more example from a book I’m currently reading.  It’s called Shackled – by Mariam Ibraheem.  Mariam grew up in a Sudanese refugee camp – a Christian initially because of her mother’s faith in Christ – under the legalistic constraints of Islamic Sharia Law.  As Islam and its hateful dictates pressed in on Mariam, she never denied Jesus.  In fact, she stood on His Word and believed Him when He said that He would never leave or forsake her.

Mariam was unjustly accused of crimes against Islam and was sentenced to prison while pregnant along with her one-year-old son who lived in the prison with her.  Because the Islamic authorities believed her possessed by demons for her steadfast faith in Christ and absolute refusal to bow to the demands of Islam, an Imam was sent to the prison to perform an exorcism on her to drive out the Christ Spirit within her.  I’ll read you a little of what Mariam wrote concerning this experience:


As the Imam screamed more Koranic scriptures at me, he reached down and pulled up a leather whip he had been keeping nearby on the floor.  “Leave her!” he cried, then whipped me across the back.

. . .

As the imam struck me repeatedly with his whip, I wondered if he had ever stopped to think about the fact that Muhammad never suffered for his sake.  Muhammad’s words did not give love, they gave hate.  Muhammad’s teachings did not bring hope to Sudan; they brought suffering.

 During his life on earth, Muhammad acted only for his own benefit.  He inflicted suffering on others but never accepted it for the sake of others.  He killed, enslaved, raped, and punished.

 However, Jesus, during His life, submitted Himself to pain, rejection, persecution, torture, and, ultimately, crucifixion.  I was not experiencing anything that He Himself had not also suffered.  He knew the anguish and hardship I was going through because He, too, had been persecuted and beaten, and He would never leave me.

 The imam developed a rhythm in which his prayer and his whipping were in sync, the whip snapping at my back between each stanza.  He went on like this for another hour.  He would pause for a moment to check whether I had tears in my eyes, and when he didn’t see any, he would resume with even greater fervor, convinced that my lack of tears was a result of demon possession.

 Inflicting pain on me seemed fully justified to him.  As an infidel in his eyes, I merited the pain I was suffering, and he was earning adoration for his piety in carrying out my punishment.  Yet, of the two of us in the room, he was the one to be pitied.  His adherence to Islam earned him no grace.  In order to obtain mercy, he had to deliver punishment.  He had to disown his humanity to abide by his duty.  A sober mind might have stopped him from beating a pregnant woman, but his god demanded compliance.  While Jesus taught love for unbelievers, Muhammad taught death to infidels and contempt for all those who would show them mercy.

 I prayed for the man beating me.  He, too, was a prisoner.

 When he finished, my back was so raw that I was almost unable to stand.  When I moved, each stripe on my back bit into my flesh and shot excruciating pain to my brain.

. . .

Praying for the imam was one of the hardest things that I had done in my life, but I knew that it was the will of the Father.  My pain would last for a moment, but, without Jesus, the imam’s pain would last for eternity.


We can chronicle thousands and thousands of such circumstances and worse.  The point is that extreme tribulation has been and is occurring – and most of the western church is unaware.  In fact, many in the church don’t want to know about such things.  In my days of volunteering with VOM and speaking to churches, there were many that had no interest.  Or, in those places I could go to speak, a number of people told me it was more than they could bear to hear and wouldn’t listen.  Life as a believer in America, and the West in general, is easy compared to that of our brethren elsewhere.  Because of this ignorance, the pre-Trib Rapture deniers figure that we must go through the Tribulation.  I presume they think that somewhere along the line, America has to experience the suffering that Scripture denotes for believers in Christ.  What they neglect to see is that the Bible specifies quite clearly that THE Tribulation is not for the purpose of cleansing those who choose wisely to follow God.

In my Rapture Reading 12 Rapture or Wrath (video link below with transcript at my Rumble Awaken Bible prophecy channel), I explain how God intends the Tribulation as a means for Him to judge and punish those who have rejected His Lordship.  In this post I quote Isaiah 13:9,11 to illustrate who is the target during these awful seven years:

Behold, the day of the Lord comes,
cruel, with wrath and fierce anger,
to make the land a desolation
and to destroy its sinners from it.

 I will punish the world for its evil,
and the wicked for their iniquity;
I will put an end to the pomp of the arrogant,
and lay low the pompous pride of the ruthless.

To emphasize this point, here is Paul in 2 Thessalonians 2:9-10 who says:

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.

It should be quite clear from these verses that THE Tribulation is the time God sends His wrath and righteous anger upon the unbelieving world.  How do we know this?  Listen to the language.  The Day of the Lord, i.e. the 7-year Tribulation is for sinners, the world for its evil, the wicked for their iniquity, the arrogant, the ruthless, those who are perishing, the ones who refused to love the truth and so be saved.

God has already dealt with us who follow Jesus Christ as true believers; that was the whole point of Jesus shedding His blood for us.  Those who think we must go through the Tribulation are essentially looking to crucify Jesus all over again.  It’s like they’ve become Catholics who see the crucifix with Jesus still on the cross and determine that they have to finish the work of salvation because what He did wasn’t adequate.

For us in the West who aren’t experiencing the persecution in the 10/40 Window, we should rejoice that God has spared us.  It doesn’t mean we won’t go through little “t” trials and tribulations – we do.  However, they are largely less severe than those which others endure.  We still have terrible illness and other issues that cause us distress, but remember, there were seven churches Jesus spoke to in His letter in Revelation.  There was one church – Smyrna – that was explicitly known for its persecution.  Some of the others also experienced it, but not to the extent of Smyrna.  We could say that Smyrna is an archetype of the suffering church, i.e. the particular peoples of God, whose faith is tested through the extreme.  This pattern applies to those believers suffering in the 10/40 Window.

Are you familiar with the legal concept of Double Jeopardy?  Here’s Wikipedia’s definition:

Double jeopardy is a procedural defense (primarily in common law jurisdictions) that prevents an accused person from being tried again on the same (or similar) charges following an acquittal and in rare cases prosecutorial and/or judge misconduct in the same jurisdiction.

Would God require the persecuted believers in Smyrna to be acquitted through the sacrifice of Christ, then require them to again be judged and punished?  Do you think that those who truly follow Jesus elsewhere in the world and have experienced His complete redemption will once more be accused and suffer in the worst of all possible times?  The thinking that God requires persecuted believers to experience Double Jeopardy by also going through the depredations of the Tribulation is absurd.  And, if we believe all whom God intends to Rapture will go up at the same time, then surely persecuted believers in the 10/40 Window won’t go up pre-Trib while the rest of us go mid- or post-Trib.  That makes no sense.

Here’s the bottom line regarding this: If we don’t suffer from the hands of sinful men; we inevitably suffer from the results of sin in some way.  It may be violent; it may be passively distressful.  None of it matters nor impacts the work of Christ on the cross who redeemed us from sin of all kinds.

We have our own challenges here in America.  Because salvation has been easy, most of us have not counted the cost as must those who live under Islam, Hinduism, or Communism, and any other persecuting ideologies.  But don’t think we escape.  We may not face death for our belief, but we must resist the satanic lure of the Prosperity Gospel, the Social Gospel, Hyper Grace, the New Apostolic Reformation, and all the other ministries that teach anything but the true Word of God.  The message of these movements causes many people to miss the basis of salvation.  Often, they don’t teach repentance, since sin becomes almost a forbidden word that each of us must acknowledge about ourselves.  Our need for a Savior is lost amongst the worldly teachings that keep peoples’ focus anywhere but on the true Gospel.

This can be our best life now; everyone of us should have a healing touch; speaking prophetically is a gift that can be taught; the problem isn’t the person, it’s the system; since God forgives all our sin, we can sin to our heart’s content; God intends for us to gird our loins and push back against the darkness that’s coming in the Tribulation.  We CAN overcome!

None of this is found in Scripture.


  1. Obliviousness as to God’s character and His promises

I’m not the only one who makes this point; I know Terry James has also voiced it.  God’s character and His promises are incredibly important to consider when examining this issue of Rapture versus Tribulation and whether or not the church of true believers is destined for this time of horrors.

Throughout the Old and New Testaments, God showed the two sides of His character: that of love and mercy, and that of wrath and judgment.  It took the coming of Jesus to bring about the fullness of the demonstration of God’s amazing grace, yet it was always there in the past for those who sought the Lord and rejected the allure of false gods.  For those who chose to exalt themselves and the idols of the day, presuming that God would overlook these sins, the prophets made quick work of such foolishness.  They made it abundantly clear that such people were the object of God’s anger and they must turn from their evil ways.  Those who didn’t, suffered the consequences of the broad road of destruction.  Anyone who revered God, gave Him his heart, and walked in His ways was blessed.  In the OT, blessings came through physical possessions; in the NT blessings became the understanding and promise of eternal life in the presence of God.

A concept I appropriated from Dr. Michael Heiser is that of believing loyalty.  All that God ever really wanted from His people was their hearts, i.e. for them to believe in Him as the One true God and to shun false gods and their worship.  This was exactly what David did, and why he was considered a man after God’s own heart.  Despite his sins, David never wavered from his belief that Yahweh was the only God; that all others were pretenders to the throne.  Those false gods were myriad and were followed under the names of Baal, Chemosh, Molech, and many others.  Our false gods today are seemingly less visible because we don’t make statues of them as idols, but they are just as real in the form of lust, greed, hunger for power, and much more.  Where is our believing loyalty?  Is it for God or is for something other than Him?

This is the crux of the matter.  For people who reject Jesus, that side of the coin marked with wrath and judgment is the one which lands with its side up.  When that is the case, Deuteronomy 4:24 comes into play for them:

For the Lord your God is a consuming fire, a jealous God.

A consuming fire is one that destroys completely, leaving nothing but embers and ash.  Looking again at Isaiah 13:9,11 and those who practice that which God calls out in these verses, their end is assured and justified.  In our consideration of whether or not believers go through the Tribulation, this is the defining issue.  To repeat from what I said earlier: the 7-year Tribulation is for sinners, the world for its evil, the wicked for their iniquity, the arrogant, the ruthless, those who are perishing, the ones who refused to love the truth and so be saved.  God’s character as a righteous judge demands this.

On the other hand, why would a just and honorable God make those whose believing loyalty is steadfast to Him endure such atrocities as will be perpetrated in the Tribulation?  Even more pertinent, why would a loving Father tell the children He adores that they must walk through a burning building to prove they really love Him?  When Jesus said on the cross: “It is finished,” was there a caveat?  Did He say: “Except for those believers in the 21st Century just before the Tribulation”?  Or perhaps He neglected to inform us that “Those of you who believe in Me in the end-times aren’t as saved as My people previously were.  Your salvation isn’t as effective as it was for believers in 1820.  It won’t really be finished for you.”

Somehow, I missed those precious Words of His in my numerous readings of the entire Bible.  Maybe they’re in apocryphal writings somewhere?  They surely aren’t in canon.

The point is that there is no justifiable reason for true believers today to go through a time in this world where literally everything is destroyed because it’s meant for: 1) the redemption of those who will be redeemed, and 2) the punishment for those who won’t as a precursor to the eternal fires of hell.

It is because of the very nature of God – just as He’s always consistently said and demonstrated through the ages – that those who disobey His holy commands will suffer for their rebellion.  In the same manner, those who through faith give their heart, soul, mind, and strength to the Lord in believing loyalty, He will shower upon them His favor and blessings.  Trust me when I say this: It will not be a blessing to enter the Tribulation.

God’s character – His very Word – is at stake in this issue.  Can we trust that He will keep us, even as He said, from the wrath to come?  Will He preserve us, the true church that has little power, just as He declared, from the hour of trial that will come upon the whole world to try those who dwell upon the earth?  Can we truly take encouragement knowing that He will deliver us by coming in the clouds for those who love Him?

Or has this all been a ruse, a massive game for believers, in which a cruel god gets the last laugh because he made us think placing our faith in Christ actually meant something special?

Ultimately, those who think we’re headed for the Tribulation must have a very low concept of God and Christ’s redemption.  Their understanding of His character is significantly flawed.

I for one choose to believe that He will indeed come as a thief in the night for His Bride and whisk us away to the mansions He has prepared for us.



Over the years Satan has worked his evil deeds by infiltrating the church at large and the institutions that are supposed to deliver pastors steeped in the Word of God.  At first it was the Catholic Church that did all in its power to keep Bibles from the common man.  When that effort was foiled, the Vatican initiated the Inquisitions to kill those who sought to make Scripture universally available and who actually preached what it said, as opposed to that which man declared.

Of course, persecution caused the church of true believers to grow.  As a result, Satan and his minions corrupted the teaching in seminaries, and their students propagated the lies in the pulpits, leading to errors-filled congregations.

A major satanic initiative continued from the past was to convince people that they could rely on their preachers to tell them what God wanted for their lives.  Over time, fewer churchgoers read God’s Word.  Today, a distinct minority has any true Biblical literacy.

Another falsehood that is satanic at its core is the deception that the pre-Tribulation Rapture is an idea birthed through John Darby in the 1800s.  According to this myth, Darby conceived of his ideas through the influence of a young, charismatic mystic by the name of Margaret MacDonald.  This has been proved a complete lie time and again, but those who advocate anything but a pre-Trib Rapture inevitably bring up Darby as supposed “proof” that this is a new concept.

The Bible text is clear that Jesus and Apostles Paul and John all believed in a pre-Trib Rapture.  Because they did, so did the majority of early Church Fathers.  Satan couldn’t have the people of God eagerly anticipating the soon return of Christ.  That would make them more holy, and thus untouchable by him.  He couldn’t have that!  As a result, the Father of Lies concocted the Darby defamation.  And look at how successful Satan has been!  The majority of the church doesn’t believe in a pre-Tribulation Rapture.

Of course, if pastors actually paid attention to the 1/3 of the Bible that pertains to prophecy, they might actually see the bigger picture of God’s plans and purposes for this earth and His creation.  But they neglect Bible Prophecy like it’s molten iron.  “Can’t touch it!  We might get burned!”

That brings us to the sad state of affairs now present in Christendom.  The end-times with the 7-year Day of the Lord is something seen as mild and required for believers to overcome.  The Person of God and His holy demands are minimized.  Those in the church are confused and non-committal because they don’t want to be seen as questioning authority, regardless of whether their pastor is adhering to Biblical truth or not.

The only antidote to this is for believers to diligently and regularly read God’s Word – all of it – from Genesis to Revelation.  Pushback I get in this regard is that people don’t like to read and get distracted.  That’s an issue in itself, but let’s not forget what the Bible says in Romans 10:17:

So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

Hearing God’s Word was the way people learned in the days when printed material was rare.  Listen to it and live!  There’s no excuse for us not steeping ourselves, one way or another, in what God has to say – especially in these perilous times!  Smartphones are ubiquitous; Bible apps are plentiful.  Reading plans are available everywhere for the asking.

In my 4-volume series of Awaken Bible Study Notes, (linked below), as well as in my companion 4-volume Awaken Bible Commentary and Reflections (linked below) I include a favorite reading plan of mine.  These books bring to your attention the amazing deliverance in the Rapture that God plans for His children, as well as the incredible supernatural aspects of Scripture that most people simply miss.

The bottom line is that there is no reason anyone should misunderstand or deny God’s intent to Rapture the church of true believers before the Tribulation.  Understanding why God will soon remove us from this world and anticipating our Lord appearing for us on the clouds to call us home should be the greatest joy believers can have, aside from the fact of salvation itself.

Are we of the world and focused on it?  Or are we strangers in this strange land desperately desiring no longer to be here?

I know what I choose.  How about you?

Shemitah – Agenda 2030 – Tribulation Timing

Is there a correlation to upcoming events on the Jewish calendar and things which are happening in the world.  Can we speculate with a possible high degree of certainty when the 7-year Tribulation will begin?  This article addresses these issues and more!


Shemitah – Agenda 2030 – Tribulation Timing

A sister in Christ sent me the link to an interesting teaching the other day.  The video discusses God’s decree that at the end of each 7-year Shemitah period, the Israelites were to forgive their fellow Jews all their debts and to let their land lie fallow.  You know from reading the Old Testament that Israel failed badly to obey the Lord in this regard.  This had consequences.

One of the points the teacher made in his message – that you can see at this link: – is that the Jewish year of 5782, which is known on our western calendar as 2021-2022, is the seventh year of the Shemitah cycle, i.e. we’re currently in a Shemitah year.  (According to Mark Blitz in the video, Shemitah years on the Jewish calendar are evenly divisible by seven.).  The date correlates with what Jonathan Cahn wrote in his 2014 book The Mystery of the Shemitah.  When Cahn’s book was published, the Jewish year of 5775 equated to the 2014-2015 period on our calendar.  Carrying the cycle forward, the next Shemitah will be in 5789, or as we know it, in 2028-2029.  Also, the last year in the 7-year cycle from our western perspective always includes the following year.  Thus currently, 2022 teams with 2023 as the first year in the next sequence of years, and the new Shemitah cycle after that will begin in 2029-2030.  To make this a little clearer, this abbreviated Shemitah chart may help:


1st Year                                   7th Year

—                                             2014-2015 (5775)

2015-2016 (5776)                 2021-2022 (5782)

2022-2033 (5783)                2028-2029 (5789)

2029-2030 (5790)                2035-2036 (5796)

2036-2037 (5797)                —


Another key aspect of these 7-year cycles is that every fifty years, i.e. after seven of these 7-year periods, is the year of Jubilee.  This fiftieth year was a Sabbath of the Sabbaths where everything and everyone in the land were redeemed.  Leviticus 25:19 declares how God will bless Israel for keeping the Jubilee:

The land will yield its fruit, and you will eat your fill and dwell in it securely.

Israel didn’t obey the Lord with His command about the Jubilee, and He ultimately imposed His own 50-year Sabbaths on the land by casting the people of Israel out of it for a time.  Because Israel failed to keep the Jubilee calendar, its current date is uncertain.  Was it after the previous Jewish year following 5775?  Is it after this year of 5782?  Or is it still to come subsequent to 5789 or even 5796?

This is all well and good, but the key point to these date periods is that Daniel’s Seventieth Week (Daniel 9:27) is a 7-year timeframe that has not yet happened.  Now, I’m not a learned scholar of Jewish laws by any means, but my understanding is that, based on historical timing, Daniel’s seven years will likely correspond to a Shemitah cycle as God brings fullness to His promises, declarations, and judgments to Israel.  The possibility also exists that the Daniel’s Seventieth Week could also correspond to the final Shemitah prior to the Jubilee.  If this is the case, it may be that we can determine with a high degree of accuracy when the Tribulation – Jacob’s Trouble – will begin.  In fact, the subsequent Jubilee could correlate with the beginning of the Millennial Reign of Christ.

Three possibilities present themselves in this relationship of Shemitah cycles and the 7-year Tribulation.  They are:

  1. Beginning in the 2022-2023 period
  2. Beginning in the 2029-2030 period
  3. Beginning some fifty years into the future as the next Jubilee

Based on what many of us who study and teach Bible prophecy have concluded, all the signs of the coming Tribulation have converged.  As Pastor JD Farag says, these prophetic signs have a shelf life.  With all the factors that make a prophecy relevant today, it is unlikely they will remain static and be applicable – say – in ten years.  We can also liken Bible prophecy to the stretching of a rubber band.  It can only stretch so far before it breaks.  Something has to happen.  Given this reality, a 50-year hiatus until the next potential for the Tribulation and subsequent Jubilee with similar converging events seems improbable.  As a result, I think we can rule out Option #3.

What about Option #1?  I know that many people believe we are on the absolute cusp of the beginning of the Tribulation.  Some even – incorrectly – believe we’re already in it.  The idea with thinking the Tribulation may begin momentarily runs into a roadblock when we consider Ezekiel’s War, i.e. the War of Gog of Magog described in Ezekiel 38-39.  In the almost-Tribulation scenario, you have to believe that Ezekiel’s War occurs within the defined 7-year period.  I dispute that based on several issues, but the one of greatest importance is the 7-year clean-up that Israel conducts following the war (Daniel 39:9).  If you place this war within the 7-year Trib period, you have to believe that even after the Antichrist desecrates the newly-built Third Temple at the mid-point and begins persecuting the Jews, they will continue to go about their land clean-up duties as if life remains normal for them.  That’s simply a fantasy.  It is primarily for this reason that I believe Ezekiel’s War must begin at least 3 1/2 years prior to the official beginning of the Tribulation as defined by the Daniel 9:27 covenant agreement that Israel embraces.

Since none of the Ezekiel events have happened, it is impossible for the Tribulation to begin in this current timeframe of 2022-2023.

Lastly, let’s consider Option #2.  This makes a lot of sense from my perspective because it also connects the dots of what we’re seeing in the world.  What is the major emphasis coming at us today?  It’s that we must Build Back Better through climate initiatives, financial restructuring, and transhumanist ideals pushed by the World Economic Forum.  What is the target date?  It aligns with the United Nations and their Agenda 2030, i.e. the end of this decade – roughly 7 1/2 years from now in 2030.

And, guess what?  The year 2030 correlates to the next beginning Shemitah 7-year cycle!  From this dating we can see that if the Tribulation and the next Shemitah cycle are one and the same, then the push by the globalists will intensify greatly in the coming few years.  From this, we can also do some other calculations.

If Ezekiel’s War must occur at least 3 1/2 years prior to the Tribulation, then at the latest it should happen in 2026 or sooner.  I happen to believe there will be a Psalm 83 War prior to Ezekiel.  That being the case, in order for this war’s consequences to play out, it has to erupt probably at least a couple years earlier, around 2024.

Summarizing these major events, we have these potential dates:

  • ~2024 – Psalm 83 War
  • ~2026 – Ezekiel’s War
  • ~2030 – Tribulation begins (per the Daniel 9:27 covenant agreement signing)
  • ~2037 – Millennial Kingdom starts (corresponding to Jubilee)

I happen to like the Alternative View that Bill Salus postulates for the opening of the first five Seals.  In this scenario, the Rapture occurs and there is a Post Rapture / pre-Tribulation gap period of indeterminate length.  There is nothing textual that specifically links the opening of the Seals with the signing of the covenant agreement that officially begins the 7-year Tribulation.  Because of that, the possibility exists that these several Seals could be initiated earlier in the gap period after the Rapture.  From our dating above, it’s conceivable the Psalm 83 War and Ezekiel’s War could occur in this gap as part of the opening of the 2nd Seal with the rider on the red horse of war.

As a fervent proponent of the pre-Tribulation Rapture, I look at all these dots and wonder how they can connect.  The most important dot of all from my perspective is the Rapture itself.  I’m not a date-setter in any respect.  What I have done in the past, and am doing now, is speculate that based on the way the world is devolving and all the signs of the times are converging, it seems difficult to conceive of the Rapture occurring any later than 2025.  It’s just based on Berean and Issacharian Biblical understanding.  Is there a red sky?  Is it morning or evening?  In Matthew 16:2-3 Jesus said:

 . . . “When it is evening, you say, ‘It will be fair weather, for the sky is red.’ And in the morning, ‘It will be stormy today, for the sky is red and threatening.’ You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you cannot interpret the signs of the times.”

Do we heed the Lord’s Words and try to assess these things or do we ignore them?

With the information I’ve presented in this article, it may even push up the Blessed Hope prior to 2024.  The Rapture is something we hold to be imminent, i.e. it could happen at any time because there are no preconditions.

Again, as Pastor JD Farag says, the Rapture is sooner than any of us can believe.  The Bible tells us this and the world is confirming it.  The dots have connected.  Soon and very soon, we’ll be with Jesus.

Awaken Bible Prophecy Update 4-6-22 The Facade of Normalcy Bias & The Days of Noah

In the February 2022 issue of the McAlvany Intelligence Advisor, the publication makes the statement that:

Rather than falling prey to normalcy bias, independent thinkers must (1) acknowledge that many of the things Americans take for granted could suddenly change and (2) act upon that knowledge.

There are several key takeaways from this.  They are:

  1. Normalcy bias is a danger
  2. One must be an independent thinker to escape it
  3. Sudden change is on the horizon
  4. Those who understand this must act accordingly

In the days of Noah, these four issues were likewise looming over the earth.  Only one man saw what was coming, with – of course – divine guidance.  Do we have the same circumstances today?  If so, who is it that sees and has prepared in the best possible way?

We’ll pray, read a Scripture verse, and briefly discuss this subject.



Jude 6-7

And the angels who did not stay within their own position of authority, but left their proper dwelling, he has kept in eternal chains under gloomy darkness until the judgment of the great day— just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding cities, which likewise indulged in sexual immorality and pursued unnatural desire, serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire.

The Facade of Normalcy Bias & The Days of Noah

    • First, let’s look at the Days of Noah
    • This has been a popular topic in the last several years with the end-times closing in on us
    • Over the years Christianity has considered the Genesis 6:1-5 account from primarily two perspectives – this reads:
  • When man began to multiply on the face of the land and daughters were born to them, the sons of God saw that the daughters of man were attractive. And they took as their wives any they chose. Then the Lord said, “My Spirit shall not abide in man forever, for he is flesh: his days shall be 120 years.” The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of man and they bore children to them. These were the mighty men who were of old, the men of renown.

The Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intention of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

    • Perspective #1 – The non-supernatural position that the sons of God noted here are really the righteous sons of Seth
    • Perspective #2 – The text says exactly what it says, i.e. that a supernatural event occurred
    • The Perspective #1 position somehow attributes to the daughters of man that they were actually the pagan daughters of Cain, thus, they were corrupted and evil
    • The Nephilim in this fantasy were simply mighty men or heroes – not giants
    • There is nothing Scripturally that confirms this understanding
    • In fact, Jude 6 and 2 Peter 2:4 definitively counter it and effectively argue for the supernatural account
    • In Perspective #2 that we take literally, divine beings in the heavenlies rebelled against God, and in their lust for human women, transgressed the boundaries that God had placed between their heavenly abode and earth
    • An additional aspect of this is that the sons of God – otherwise known as Watchers in Daniel 4:17 and the book of 1 Enoch – may very well have been planning, along with Satan, to produce their own race of beings in place of mankind that God created
    • These non-human beings – or more-than-human entities – would not be redeemable as God had designed human flesh to be through the blood of Jesus because of the corruption of their bodies, i.e. of the manipulation of their bloodlines and altering of their DNA
    • Satan realized he had to take such drastic actions because of the curse of Genesis 3:15 upon him:
  • And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
    • The seed of Satan – whether simply sinful man, or altered offspring from God’s original intentions, plus Satan himself- were destined for destruction
    • In that position, Satan knew he had to do whatever was necessary to preserve his own existence
    • For Satan going forward, whatever means necessary to preserve his life would justify that end
    • Biblical dating of the Great Flood in which Noah and his family were rescued puts it somewhere around 2000 BC, or some 4000 years ago
    • That being the case, assuming the Watchers came down soon after Adam and Eve were cast from the Garden, then they had as many as 2000 years in which to propagate their depravity and populate the earth with it
    • There are extra-Biblical accounts that the Nephilim procreated with human women as well, among their own offspring, and even with animals with resulting varied and strange hybrid beasts
    • Some people today speculate that through the wisdom the Watchers had from heaven – likely from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil – that there were even genetic experiments that they conducted in some manner outside of sexual intercourse
    • From all this depraved sexual and experimental activity the entire earth was corrupted
    • Is it any wonder that Genesis 6:5 says? –
      • The Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intention of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
    • Because this had all been going on and increasing over hundreds of years, it all became normal to the inhabitants of the earth
    • In fact, that there were cannibalistic giants and strange hybrid creatures like Centaurs, Minotaurs, and Cyclops – none of this obviously fazed the so-called people living at that time
    • Man was no longer man
    • His body was no longer what God had made
    • Human flesh had become an abomination along with everything else on the planet
    • Yet, as Matthew 24:37-38 tells us, it was life like they’d always known for generations
      •  But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.  For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark,
    • In their depraved state, they were as happy-go-lucky as they could be
    • Who knows what marriage was to them at that time?
    • I have a sneaking suspicion that it wasn’t what we typically picture
    • I’m sure they were quite tolerant as to the definition of marriage
    • Regardless, from their perspective, all was well and as it should be
    • Life in the antediluvian world was normal
    • If ever there was a time that could claim normalcy bias, that was it
    • Since we haven’t done it yet, let’s have Wikipedia define normalcy bias for us:
  • Normalcy bias, or normality bias, is a cognitive bias which leads people to disbelieve or minimize threat warnings. Consequently, individuals underestimate the likelihood of a disaster, when it might affect them, and its potential adverse effects. The normalcy bias causes many people to not adequately prepare for natural disasters, market crashes, and calamities caused by human error. About 70% of people reportedly display normalcy bias during a disaster.
    • The interesting aspect of this is that Noah warned the world that judgment was coming
    • We see this in 2 Peter 2:5:
  • And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;
    • If Noah was a preacher of righteousness, he was obviously telling the world – even as he built the ark to the scoffing and mocking of the people – that a terrible time of God’s wrath was coming
    • But look at their response in Matthew 24:39
  • and they were unaware until the flood came and swept them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.
    • They were unaware!
    • Likely, God had placed blinders over their eyes and a veil over their minds making them unable to understand
    • This would be a similar situation to what Jesus said in Mark 4:12:
  • “That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them.”
  • God could not have such sin enter into His kingdom
  • Thus he prevented the inhabitants of the world at that time from comprehending the extent of the punishment coming their way


    • That’s our background
    • William Shakespeare in his play The Tempest said: “The past is prelude to the present”
    • Are we in similar days of Noah now?
    • Is the past speaking to us in what the world looks like today?
    • From the convergence of all the prophetic signs, I absolutely believe so
    • I also think that the majority of the pagan world and even much of Christianity is subject to normalcy bias and is completely missing the picture that God is showing those of us who desire to understand the times
    • Because Bible prophecy is subject to much derision among unbelievers, and worse – has been neglected by the church – the idea that the end of the world as we know it simply can’t be fathomed
    • Those of us preaching the pre-Tribulation Rapture are like the old white-bearded man in sackcloth standing on the street-corner with his sign that says, “Repent.  The end is near!”
    • What do all the passers-by do?  They laugh just like 2 Peter 3:3-4 says they will:
  • knowing this first of all, that scoffers will come in the last days with scoffing, following their own sinful desires. They will say, “Where is the promise of his coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all things are continuing as they were from the beginning of creation.”
  • From the pagan world to the pews of most churches, the idea of a supernatural Rapture that delivers God’s people from this world before judgment simply isn’t possible
  • I’ve made the point in a prior Prophecy Update that at least from the churches’ perspective, they can accept the supernatural virgin birth and even Jesus’ resurrection, but for Him to come back on the clouds to rescue true believers in the Rapture for them to escape God’s wrath?
  • No way!
  • So how are these current times like those of Noah’s day?
  • For one – all we have to do is look around us to see the incredible depth of sin and the depravity of mankind
  • The most visible example of this is Disney
  • In reality, Disney has had a pedophilia agenda for many years
  • When one looks hard and examines certain subtle images they’ve flashed in various movies for a long time or listens to things said by their characters, there has been a deeply hidden core of depravity
  • We’re all familiar with subliminal programming
  • This is where images, words, or phrases are inserted into something we’re watching or listening to with the intent of stimulating something in an individual below the threshold of their conscious perception
  • Don’t believe me?  – Check it out about Disney for yourself
  • Given these long-standing hidden messages, is it any wonder that in this day and age, a significant number of Disney employees are now expressing their own perversions for all to see?
  • Is it any wonder that Disney executives are all-in against the reasonable Parental Rights in Education bill the Florida legislature passed and Governor Ron DeSantis signed to protect little children from their degenerate teachers who want to make them all question their God-given gender and sexuality?
  • Disney recently announced that it is expanding its LGBT-focused content and plans to extend its streaming service to Muslim countries that even criminalize homosexuality
  • In a recent Disney meeting an executive producer on video laid out Disney’s ideology in blunt terms. She said her team was implementing a “not-at-all-secret gay agenda” and regularly “adding queerness” to children’s programming.
  • This is obviously an effort to expand and normalize gay and trans ideologies in America as well as in cultures that kill people for such lifestyles
  • Disney is only the tip of the iceberg currently operating in broad daylight and showing their true colors
  • As I warned repeatedly about the COVID injection not to take them, I warn now that parents should avoid Disney and everything associated with it
  • Disney is NOT wholesome entertainment
  • It is a hotbed of depravity
  • And the sad part is that Americans and “normal” people around the world are generally quite accepting of this
  • Even within the church, because children are so enthralled with Disney and its characters, parents turn a blind eye even to highly publicized efforts like what’s currently going on
  • They say: “My children love Disney!  How can I deprive them of such joy?”
  • I say: “How can you allow them to be exposed to such depravity right under your noses?”
  • Because it’s all normal now
  • It’s the way the world is
  • Pagan or Christian – it doesn’t matter
  • Everyone embraces the popular culture despite God’s declaration to His people to not be of the world
  • The god of Disney is exerting his pull just like the gods in nations surrounding Israel in the OT exerted their influence
  • Whether Baal, Chemosh, Molech, or Disney – they’re all the same
  • They want to suck you in and take you down
  • Besides the out-and-out sin and depravity of today’s world that mirrors the time of Noah, the other major issue is the genetic engineering
  • We’re not sure how all this genetic manipulation may have been accomplished in the pre-flood era, i.e. whether it came about solely through sexual means, or if the Watchers somehow accomplished it outside the womb
  • One way or the other, however, it surely happened and turned the world upside down by corrupting all human flesh except for that of Noah and his family
  • Today we know for sure that Big Pharma like Pfizer and Moderna are instrumental in experimental DNA modification
  • The last 2+ years have demonstrated that quite thoroughly to those who have eyes to see and ears to hear
  • The end game is multi-faceted – it includes:
    • A depopulation agenda through pure death jabs
    • The means to determine how much of which kind of nefarious ingredients do what
    • In other words: how many of these horrific parasites, whether organic, non-organic, or hybrids grow in the human body and to what extent?
    • How much graphene oxide is necessary for literal circuit boards to self-assemble in the bloodstream with the intent of two-way communication through 5G networks?
    • Based on the modified, man-created organisms, structures, and entities – at what point do the patents for these things allow their makers to own the people into whom they’re injected?
    • Since of course the entire planet is one big experiment, i.e. a massive petri dish, some efforts by the globalist scientists will find success in determining how all this that’s being done can be used to both enhance certain humans far beyond what God created and to extend their lives indefinitely
    • The global elites had to use the world’s population at large to make sure anything they might do to themselves would have beneficial effects and not be detrimental
    • The masses of humanity are simply there to be used and abused for the “greater good” of assuring a positive outcome for the elites
  • There has been speculation among those who watch these efforts that perhaps some number of people in the world are already enhanced to some extent, i.e. they’ve been genetically modified for so-called super capabilities through chimeric and/or silicon-based upgrades
  • We know for a fact that nations like China, Russia, and the US have worked on super-soldier programs for many years
  • Of course as we’ve seen, the transhumanists among us are quite active, from Klaus Schwab in his WEF and their Fourth Industrial Revolution to make Humanity 2.0, and people like Elon Musk with his Neuralink brain-computer interfacing
  • It’s these kinds of efforts, i.e. the genetic experiments and the AI-computer enhanced capabilities that bring many of us to the realization that the 7-year Tribulation will be more horrendous than anyone anticipates
  • Worse than these developments is the sneaking suspicion that the Watchers, i.e. the rebellious sons of God who are still lurking around the planet and directing the course of nations through compliant, deviant men and women, are also multiplying their kind
  • The question is: Have the Watchers been breeding Nephilim and creating armies of them in deeply hidden locations around the world?
  • Will these creatures be unleashed at the point that the church is Raptured?
  • With this next speculation, you’ll probably figure that once more I’ve gone off the deep end
  • So be it
  • I just bring to your attention all the UFO-alien abductions over the years in which little gray men performed some kind of surgeries or experiments on the reproductive organs of the human abductees
  • There are also the accounts of massive animal slaughters with their reproductive organs mutilated and ripped out
  • Do you think that this is all fantasy?
  • Given what we know today, we might want to rethink such things
  • Just an aside about aliens: they are not extra-terrestrial
  • They are interdimensional
  • In other words, they are not another species from outer space
  • Rather they are demonic entities breaching the physical-spiritual world barrier
  • But of course very little of the alien-UFO news gets much attention anymore with all the other distractions, i.e. all the normal distractions of everyday life that has become so bad we tune it out
  • This must be like it’s always been – right?
  • It’s just like the government and Big Pharma are normalizing heart attacks and strokes among young people and even children
  • They say: “Don’t you know that six-year-olds have always gotten strokes?  Aren’t you aware that teenagers have always had heart attacks?”
  • Is it any wonder that defibrillators are being put in many places you’d never previously find them – such as schools?
  • Life in the big city and in the entire world – it’s all as normal as it can be



    • The majority of the population of the world has accepted the narrative that the WEF and its cronies have conveyed through the media
    • The primary reason is that most people don’t know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior – thus they don’t have God-given wisdom and discernment
    • The unfortunate thing is that – though there are many in the church today who are saved – neither do they have or receive what God wants to give them
    • I attribute this ignorance to two key points:
      • #1 – Very few people in church read their Bibles and thus don’t have the means for God to regularly communicate with them
      • #2 – Apathy toward Bible prophecy – despite comprising as much as 1/3 of Scripture it’s ignored by pastors and congregants
        • People have no idea what God intends for this earth per His Word
    • The result from these two factors is that the church is no different than the world
      • People in the church don’t hear God
      • Its people have no clue what is truly happening in this day and age
    • Thus, very few individuals – in society at large or in the church – are able to think independently and understand the many dots that are swirling around them in the news
    • They have no means of connecting these dots
    • The one sure thing we can say is that change is coming
    • We know this because the WEF and the United Nations have decreed through Agenda 2030 that everything they’ve been doing must roll out in that timeframe
    • We also know from the convergence of end-times signs that the Tribulation is very near
    • These two dots are very much connected and intertwined
    • From this we also know that the Rapture of the true church of Jesus Christ is going to happen very soon
    • The demonic spiritual realm is clamoring – it is very excited and agitated because its time to be unleashed upon this unsuspecting world is very close at hand
    • As Isaiah 14:9 says:
  • Hell below was in an uproar to meet thee at thy coming, it stirred up the giants for thee. All the princes of the earth are risen up from their thrones, all the princes of nations.
  • The global elites – those who are in partnership with these unclean spirits – are also rubbing their hands in glee
  • They see the soon fulfillment of decades of work coming to fruition just as they’ve planned
  • However, the kingdom of God is not asleep
  • The Lord and His angels are preparing for both a wedding celebration and a day of wrath
  • Are you ready for what is to come?
  • Are you anticipating being here during these horrible days that are on the horizon?
  • Or, are you planning to be otherwise involved with your heavenly Bridegroom – to be out-of-town, as it were?
  • Do you know the Lord Jesus Christ and believe Him when He and His servants tell you that those who are His own are not destined for the wrath of God?
  • Are you eagerly watching and waiting for Jesus to appear on the clouds?
  • If you don’t have a personal, born-again relationship with Jesus Christ, there’s still time
  • Today is the day of your salvation
  • Tomorrow may be too late
  • Don’t delay in making this most important decision of your life
  • Don’t hesitate to anticipate the Lord’s soon return for those whom He loves and will deliver from the atrocities soon to come upon the earth
  • Even in these dark times, we who know that Jesus is coming for us can be joyful
  • Let us surrender and be humble as we wait – always occupying and continuing to work at the tasks the Lord has given each of us until that glorious day
