Things are about to Happen-part 4

rev 12 and planet alignmentJesus warned of “birth pangs” that would announce His second coming.

“But when you hear of wars and commotions (riots and revaluations), do not be terrified; for these things must come to pass first, but the end will not come immediately.” Then He said to them, “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. “And there will be great earthquakes in various places, and famines and pestilences; and there will be fearful sights and great signs from heaven.” – Luke 21:9-11

Beginning in 2010 strange things began happening: birds started falling from the skies for no apparent reason, fish began washing upon on the shores by the thousands and turtles as well, cattle and dear began dropping in the fields, and many rivers began turning blood red, and then strange booming sounds began happening all around the world and from the ground. Scientist were at a loss to explain why. Many of these signs have continued to this day.

Then it was discovered that the earth had shifted on its axis. This is causing all sorts of strange weather patterns as the following video shows.

God is not only trying to get our attention with these signs. He has also been giving us heavenly signs in the moon and the stars. Let me remind you of the Blood Red Moons that began in 2014 and 2015 on the Biblical Feast days of Passover and Tabernacles. I have summed up their meanings in my article The Blood Red Moons Revisited p5

Then the Revelation 12 sign of the Woman in Heaven was fulfilled in September of 2017. This sign concerning the constellation Virgo was fulfilled September 23, 2017 first the first time in 7000 years. I have written about it in my article Signs Point the Way. This sign contains many hidden prophesies as well, not the least of which involves President Trump. It also predicts the soon coming tribulation Jesus spoke about. virgo-note-1

But, it also began the countdown to another sign which may have disastrous implications for the world – the sign of Taurus, the Bull. When the planet Jupiter (the King Planet) leaves the womb of Virgo, it begins a seven year year journey to Taurus, where it meets the planet Mars in the horns of Taurus. The Hebrew name for Taurus is Shur, which taurus_mars_jupitermeans the coming Judge. Mars, in Hebrew, is the red one or the Son of Man. Held within Taurus is a star cluster known as the Pleiades, which means the Congregation. So the meaning of this constellation is “The Son of Man comes with His Congregation to judge the earth”. This meeting of Jupiter and Mars in the horns of Taurus will occur August 13, 2024, which is the 9th of Av, the Jewish date of disaster when both of the Temples were destroyed. The time between when Jupiter left Virgo to August 13, 2024 is exactly 7 years. This is, I feel, a clear warning of the soon coming of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. It also is a warning of the soon coming of tribulation.

Whatever your interpretation of these signs are, you will have to agree that Jesus’ saying “and there will be fearful sights and great signs from heaven.” has been happening and is evidence of another ‘birth pang’.

As we consider the events mentioned in parts 1-4 of Things about to Happen, I am praying they will serve as an warning cry to awaken us and get our houses in order.

The Return of the Holy Spirit

home church in chinaThis is the month of Shavuot, or Pentecost, and it will occur on May 17, 18.  Shavuot is one of the three great festivals that are celebrated in God’s Feast Days. The Greek Jews called it Pentecost because it always occurs 50 days after Passover. It marked the annual wheat harvest but Christians know it as the day Jesus sent the Holy Spirit on the Church with tongues of fire and strange languages the disciple did not know. Jesus had told over 500 of His disciples to wait in Jerusalem until they were endued with the power of the Holy Spirit but, only 120 were obedient. The other 380 were too busy doing their things, or they didn’t take Jesus seriously. The Church today is not much different. Paul wrote to the disciples of Ephesus –

“And do not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation; but be filled with the Spirit,” – 5:18

And Peter preached on Pentecost –

“Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call.” – Acts 2:38, 39

When Paul first went to Ephesus he found disciples who didn’t know about the Holy spirit so, he taught them –

“And when Paul had laid hands on them, the Holy Spirit came upon them, and they spoke with tongues and prophesied.” – Acts 19:6

It was the same when Peter first went to Cornelius’ house –

“While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit fell upon all those who heard the word. And those of the circumcision who believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out on the Gentiles also. For they heard them speak with tongues and magnify God. Then Peter answered, “Can anyone forbid water, that these should not be baptized who have received the Holy Spirit just as we have?” – Acts 10:44-47

Sadly, both Jew and Gentile have now relegated this Feast to man-made traditions and have largely left out the Holy Spirit from His rightful place in the Church. Some even say that the gifts and speaking in tongues were just for “those days”. Could this be the reason why the Church is so powerless against the onslaught of the spirit of Antichrist?

But, I’m so thankful that man’s traditions don’t stop God from moving. He promised a former and latter rain of the Holy Spirit; the former (Pentecost) to start the great harvest and the latter (in the last days) to finish the harvest.

“Be glad then, you children of Zion, And rejoice in the LORD your God; For He has given you the former rain faithfully, And He will cause the rain to come down for you— The former rain, And the latter rain in the first month” – Joel 2:23

The Apostle James when writing about the end of the age, wrote –

“Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently for it until it receives the early and latter rain.” – James 5:7

And the prophet Zechariah tells us to ask for the latter rain –

Ask the LORD for rain In the time of the latter rain. The LORD will make flashing clouds; He will give them showers of rain, Grass in the field for everyone.” – Zech. 10:1

It is certainly the time of the latter rain so, we should be asking to be filled with the Holy Spirit as Paul said. God is giving all kinds of signs to alert us of the times we are living in. Beginning in 2010 the mass-die offs began; birds started falling from the sky, fish started washing up on the shores, and cows and deer started dropping dead from no apparent reason all over the world – and it is still going on! The rise in the occurrence of volcanos and earthquakes is phenomenal. Rivers started turning blood red in several places. In 2014 and 2015 a blood red moon tetrad occurred on the Feast days of Passover and Tabernacles, only the third time in 500 years. Then in 2017, the Revelation 12 sign of the Woman was fulfilled as the planet Jupiter went into retrograde motion for 42 weeks and left the womb of Virgo September 23, 2017 to continue it’s 7 year journey to Taurus, where it will meet Mars. Back on earth, President Trump declared Jerusalem the eternal capital of Israel and moved the United States Embassy there. This began a series of events which will lead to the rebuilding of the Temple in Jerusalem.

Now, a new administration has taken over in the United States and Biden is undoing much of what President Trump did. Biden is again making overtures toward the Palestinian terrorist’s and Iran and cooling our relations with Israel. Biden is rapidly increasing the killing of the unborn and further removing any influence God may have over the United States government. However, God is still moving. Revival is breaking out in California. Population is leaving the Blue states for the Red states. California and New York are losing House Representatives and Red states are gaining them. And God in His longsuffering is still speaking. May 26th, this year, a Super Blood Red Moon will appear over the United States. Rabbi’s in Israel are interpreting it as a warning to the United States to not return to a Two-State policy toward Israel and the Arabs. As both United States and Israeli governments are in a turmoil, the spirit of Antichrist is moving to consolidate it’s power but, God is also moving! He is moving to fulfill His word. Remember, there is still a major Middle East war to happen and God is still going to have a great latter rain and end time harvest.

It is the time of the Latter rain. God wants to empower His church with His Holy Spirit. Remember it is His Church, not man’s and not some Denomination’s! Do what Zechariah said and Ask for the Holy Spirit to fill or refill your life and then start becoming the light in the darkness.

2020, the Decade of Signs

Jonathon cahn on trumpIn Luke 21 Jesus predicts our times –

“When you hear of wars and disturbances, do not be terrified; for these things must take place first, but the end does not follow immediately.” Then He continued by saying to them, “Nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be great earthquakes, and in various places plagues and famines; and there will be terrors and great signs from heaven.” – Luke 21:9-11

There have always been wars and rumors of wars, in fact the earth has seen very few Continue reading

A Message for the World – and the Church

The world today is in turmoil and confusion. The winds of war are sweeping the Middle East; violence and plagues of locusts are sweeping Africa; the winds of financial ruin are sweeping Europe; the winds of tolerance and political correctness are sweeping America, England, and Australia; and the little tornadoes of greed, sexual immorality, religious heresy,  and pride randomly reap their havoc wherever they will. One thing is certain, there is no peace. Politicians promise hope and change but they are incapable of producing it and their plans only produce more havoc and slavery to the people they represent.

As the End Approaches

26signsMost people are at least curious about the end of the age and wonder when and how it will happen? Many wise men through the ages have tried to answer this riddle. The Holy Bible is full of prophets inspired by God to give clues to the answer to this question but, the greatest prophet in the Bible gives a clear answer to the question “what will be the sign of your coming and the end of the age?”. His name is Jesus, the Messiah.

He gave a complete outline to the events that would lead to the end on the Mount of Olives. That teaching is recorded in Matthew 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21 which are like 3 cameras recording His teaching from 3 different views. The front view is given by Matthew 24 with Mark and Luke repeating much of Matthew but adding some different perspectives. Continue reading

Passover 2020

passoverA very important Christian event is happening soon on April 9th, and I’m not referring to Easter. April 9th will be Passover, or Pesach in Hebrew. Passover is the first Feast of the Lord (Remember there are 7) in the Biblical year and  was marked in 2014-2015 by a Blood Red Moon Tetrad. As I wrote in 2015 Blood Red Moons“Heavenly signs are God’s warnings of things to come and 2014 began a series of 4 blood red moons that occur on Biblical Feast days.” The two BRM’s of 2014 did indeed set the stage for increased trouble both for Israel and the world!

God’s Clock (Revisited)

troubled timesI wrote this article in 2016 but I felt it was time to repost it. Many events have happened since then such as the fulfillment of the Revelation 12 sign of Virgo, the U.S. recognition of Jerusalem as the eternal Capital of Israel, Israel’s recognition of President Trump as the 2nd. Cyrus, to name a few. Also, as the Church has further embraced the morals of the world it has become dull of hearing.

As turmoil and confusion sweeps through the nations of the world, it would be wise to consider that God Almighty has a plan for the nations and the peoples. It was in place from the Creation and it is working even now. No nation or people group is left out. God has not hidden His plan; it is written in the heavens and proclaimed by His prophets down through the centuries. In our time, it is beginning to be fulfilled. We would be wise to consider and accept it. Continue reading

The Signs of His Coming

christmas starAs Jesus predicted the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem His disciples asked Him –

“Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?” – Matt, 24:3

Man has always wanted to know about the end of all things. It seems mankind is created with an inner knowledge that what has a beginning also has an end, that this life on earth is not the whole story. Indeed God seems to have built this question even into the creation. On the fourth day, as He created the stars and heavenly bodies, He stated –

“Then God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years;” – Gen. 1:14 Continue reading

Fulfillment of Pentecost

feasts of the LordGod has provided many signs to alert us to the times we are living in and not the least of these alerts are seven yearly feasts known as the Feasts of the Lord. They outline the plan of salvation and they also act as a prophetic calendar which are a rehearsal of God’s end time plan. It consists of 12 thirty-day months and every 13 years a 13th month is added. But this calendar is just the framework for seven yearly appointed times when God makes a special effort to meet with His people, those who have covenanted with Him. These appointed times are called The Feasts of the Lord. Four of them occur in the Spring of the year: Passover, Unleavened Bread, First Fruits, and Weeks (Pentecost). The last three occur in the Fall, in fact in the seventh month of the year; Trumpets, Day of Atonement, and Tabernacles. These seven feasts remind God’s people of the most important aspects of our covenant with Him – Continue reading
