The Last Days for America?

the last days

As we move closer to another Presidential election we need to consider what is really at stake. In light of the prophetic signs that come to pass recently it should be obvious that we are nearing the end of the age. For those among you who are younger and for those who have been asleep or too taken up with everyday living to have noticed, I will list a few of the recent prophetic events:

  • WW I – Jews return to Palestine – Balfour Declaration
  • WWII – Israel becomes a nation – 1948
  • Jerusalem back under Jewish control – 1967
  • United States begins official turn away from God – prayer removed from schools – 10 Commandments removed from public display – 1960’s
  • 1960 through 1990’s United States continues moral downward slide into apostasy
  • September 11, 2001 1st Harbinger strikes America as Islamic terrorist bring down World Trade Center Towers
  • 2011 world-wide mass die-offs of birds, fish, and animals begins
  • God sends a prophet to America with the warning of Isaiah 9:10 – Rabbi Jonathan Cahn reveals the Harbingers
  • 2014-2015 God sends  heavenly signs – a Blood Red Moon Tetrad – only the eighth since Jesus’ 1st coming – each time signaling historic changes
  • Pestilences, earthquakes, revolutions and wars increasing dramatically
  • Economic collapses in 2001, 2008, and 2015 highlighting Harbingers and Shemitahs (Sabbath years)

I have not listed the obvious building of tensions in the Middle East that signal to approach of the Psalm 83 and Ezekiel 38 wars. These and many other signs are meant to alert us to the lateness of the time. A time when the Bible declares an Antichrist figure and government will appear that will try to eliminate Israel and Christians from the earth. It is obvious that to accomplish these goals the United States will have to be removed as a world power. The best way to do this is to get the United States to leave its dependence on God who has been its historical power source.

burning dollars

This is exactly what has been happening. For the sake of the promise of money and prosperity, that never appeared, Americans elected the most anti-Christian president we have ever had . No friend of Israel, he is also no friend of Christians. Here is a partial listing of his actions over the past eight years and I would remind you – actions speak louder than words!

sum of all lies

  1. April 2008 – speaks disrespectfully of Christians accusing them of “clinging to their guns and religion and having antipathy to people who aren’t like them.”
  2. February 2009 – He announces plans to revoke conscience protection for health workers who refuse to participate in medical activities that go against their beliefs”, and fully implements the plan in February 2011.
  3. April 2009 – When speaking at Georgetown University, he orders that “a monogram symbolizing Jesus’ name be covered when he is making his speech.”
  4. May 2009 – He declines to host services for the National Prayer Day (a day established by federal law) at the White House. (Instead, he honors a Muslim prayer day.)
  5. April 2009 – In a deliberate act of disrespect, he nominated three pro-abortion ambassadors to the Vatican; of course, the pro-life Vatican rejected all three.
  6. October 19, 2010 – he begins deliberately omitting the phrase about “the Creator” when quoting the Declaration of Independence – an omission he has made on no less than seven occasions.
  7. November 2010 – he misquotes the National Motto, saying it is “E pluribus Unum” rather than “In God We Trust” as established by federal law.
  8. January 2011 – After a federal law was passed to transfer a WWI Memorial in the Mojave Desert to private ownership, the U. S. Supreme Court ruled that the cross in the memorial could continue to stand, but the Obama administration refused to allow the land to be transferred as required by law, and refused to allow the cross to be re-erected as ordered by the Court.
  9. April 2011 – For the first time in American history, he urges passage of a non-discrimination law that does not contain hiring protections for religious groups, forcing religious organizations to hire according to federal mandates without regard to the dictates of their own faith, thus eliminating conscience protection in hiring. (Of course. Muslims are exempt from obeying the federal mandate known as Obama-Care.)
  10. August 2011 – The Obama administration releases its new health care rules that override religious conscience protections for medical workers in the areas of abortion and contraception.
  11. November 2011 – he opposes inclusion of President Franklin Roosevelt’s famous D-Day Prayer in the WWII Memorial.
  12. November 2011 – Unlike previous presidents, he studiously avoids any religious references in his Thanksgiving speech.
  13. December 2011 – The Obama administration denigrates other countries’ religious beliefs as an obstacle to radical homosexual rights.
  14. January 2012 – The Obama administration argues that the First Amendment provides no protection for churches and synagogues in hiring their pastors and rabbis.
  15. February 2012 – The Obama administration forgives student loans in exchange for public service, but announces it will no longer forgive student loans if the public service is related to religion.

obamas ringOf course, I am referring to Barack Hussein Obama, the most anti-Christian president the United States has ever had. And the above is just a sample of his presidential actions. They have occurred without fanfare because a liberal press mostly agrees with him. As long as the people get their government provisions on time most of the publicly educated in this country don’t seem to mind. As I list these factual statements and actions, I am not inferring that President Obama is the beast of Revelation, only that his words and actions may portray the way in which the beast will act.

As we consider our upcoming election it would be good to remember that Hillary Clinton will at least continue Barack Obama’s marxist trend of government or worse. But, it would wise to consider that the Republicans by in large did not resist Obama’s government even though they controled both the House of Representatives and the Senate. In some cases they passed budget bills giving him all he wanted and more! So why should we expect they will give us a candidate that will point this country back to a Godly agenda? With this in mind, I want to include a video by a decorated Army general who is a strong Constitutional Christian conserative – Lt. Gen. (Ret.) W.G. (Jerry) Boykin.

The facts General Boykin listed are well documented but have you taken them to heart? Is the Pastor of your church warning against them? As a good watchman I have warned you now you need to act. The very least you can do is pray that God will deliver us and prepare us to weather the coming storm. In this age of electronic media, you could also share this message with all your friends – even though they may reject your warning.

 

Remember from where you have fallen

inaug addressWe are often called a nation of immigrants, because our people have come from so many nations of the world but, we have forgotten a very important truth about our founding. While there were many who tried to colonize this land; Vikings, Spanish, Knights Templar, Aztecs, only one group was favored by God to complete the task – Pilgrims and Puritans! Why? Because they came seeking God and to do His will on earth. They may not have been perfect – no men are – but God chose them to found this great nation. Some 200 years after they began, the United States of America was finally founded and its leaders elected by the people. The first official act of the new President and Congress was to thank God and dedicate this new country to His purposes. We were not founded on Buddhist, Islamic, Occult, or Atheist principles but on Christian principles found in the Holy Bible. In this act of dedication, George Washington also warned – Continue reading

The Blood Red Moons Revisited p5

BRM warningThis will be the last post of the series The Blood Red Moons Revisited and I will summarize the other articles and add one more point to remember.

  1. First, the BRMs (Blood Red Moon tetrad) highlight the immanent coming of the Year of Jubilee and all that it means. They also reveal the importance of the number 8 and its heralding something new coming. This BRM Tetrad was the 8th since the time of Jesus’ first coming. And finally, they emphasize the pattern of Passover and Tabernacles (Sukkot) being the first and last feasts of the seven Lord’s Feasts, thus reminding us of the Lord’s first coming and His second coming.
  2. Second, the BRMs emphasize the absolute importance of the re-establishment of Biblical based families – turning the hearts of the fathers to the children (Malachi 4:7). They also highlighted the coming later rain promised by Joel, Zechariah and James. God expects a harvest of souls and He sends the Holy Spirit in the later rain outpouring to achieve it. These BRMs also remind us of the number 10 and its meaning to those who will be saved and to those who will help form the devil’s last attempt to rule the world.
  3. Third, the BRMs stress the importance of the number 7. The secret of the shemitah (Sabbath year) and its accompanying judgments are revealed to those who will search for it. In America, money has become a god, controlling men’s lives and desires and out of mercy God will bring this god down. The shemitah even predicts when it will happen. But, in the midst of this judgment we must remember God’s promises – “I have never seen the righteous forsaken nor his seed begging bread” – Psalm 37:25.
  4. Fourth, the BRMs reveal the importance of Pentecost (Shavuot). It was there the New Covenant began, the laws of God were written on our hearts by the Holy Spirit, and by the Spirit we are sealed as the people of God. God reversed the curse of the Tower of Babel and showed His people how to enter into living relationship with Him.
  5. Fifth, the BRMs reveal the final acts of this present age of man, which I will attempt to highlight in the following article –

The Antichrist as Daniel saw him

 

danstat“This [is] the dream. Now we will tell the interpretation of it before the king. You, O king, [are] a king of kings. For the God of heaven has given you a kingdom, power, strength, and glory; and wherever the children of men dwell, or the beasts of the field and the birds of the heaven, He has given [them] into your hand, and has made you ruler over them all–you [are] this head of gold. But after you shall arise another kingdom inferior to yours; then another, a third kingdom of bronze, which shall rule over all the earth. And the fourth kingdom shall be as strong as iron, inasmuch as iron breaks in pieces and shatters everything; and like iron that crushes, [that kingdom] will break in pieces and crush all the others. Whereas you saw the feet and toes, partly of potter’s clay and partly of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; yet the strength of the iron shall be in it, just as you saw the iron mixed with ceramic clay. And [as] the toes of the feet [were] partly of iron and partly of clay, [so] the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly fragile. As you saw iron mixed with ceramic clay, they will mingle with the seed of men; but they will not adhere to one another, just as iron does not mix with clay.” – Daniel 2:36-43

The Antichrist

The Bible is full of promises about the second coming of Jesus Christ to establish the kingdom of God on earth and to rescue and redeem those who are faithful to Him –

“who also said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven.”– Acts 1:11

And it also has much to say about the Devil’s final rebellion and attempt to preempt God’s plan. It was revealed to Daniel the prophet that the final Gentile empire would be Rome and at the end of the age it would morph into a ten-kingdom confederacy, out of which

The little horn of Daniel

would rise a character patterned after the Devil’s idea of a model leader, the Antichrist.

“He shall speak pompous words against the Most High, shall persecute the saints of the Most High, and shall intend to change times and law. Then the saints shall be given into his hand for a time and times and half a time.” – Daniel 7:25

The ten kings are pictured as horns and out of them comes another horn which will subdue three of the other kings. In Daniel 8 we find further description of this person’s character. He is full of pride and stops worship of the true God, even stopping the Temple worship. Continue reading

Is War with Gog Approaching?

In last years post named Revisiting Gog of Ezekiel I stated –

“Russia’s current move into Crimea, Yugoslavia, and other Baltic states could signal the setting for Ezekiel’s prophesy beginning. Russia’s threatening Denmark with nuclear retaliation, Iran’s threatening to wipe Israel off the map, ISIS’ threats against Jordan and Saudi Arabia are all setting the scene for Israel making a preemptive strike on Lebanon, Syria, and/or Iran. Jordan, Saudi Arabia, and Egypt may even support such an Israeli attack.”

Mystery Babylon p8

spiritual warfare

There has always been war in the heavenly realms but 2000 years ago it took on a new aspect – the Holy Spirit was sent to energize God’s representatives on earth – the Church. For 2000 years this battle has been raging, sometimes winning skirmishes, sometimes losing. Now the battle is intensifying as the Bride of Christ readies herself for the great wedding that is soon coming –

“Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honor to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.” – Revelation 19:7

The Devil knows his time is short and he will do all he can to stop it. He led the Egyptians to try and kill all the Hebrew babies before Moses was born to stop them from returning to the land of promise. He led Herod to kill the babies in Bethlehem to cut off Jesus before His time to stop Him from winning our salvation. He led Hitler to try to destroy all Jews before their allotted time to return to the land. You can be assured that he is the one behind the martyrdom of Christians in Muslim countries even now. And you can be assured that he will continue to try to destroy Israel and persecute the Church to stop in any way he can the plan of deliverance God has for His people and the establishment of the kingdom of God on earth. But, God will win! Even now the Gospel of Jesus Christ is shinning, even in Muslim countries.

This is why I know that the Muslim countries that hate Israel, such as Iran, are simply marching to their own destruction. And I know the Devil’s work to persecute and destroy the Church will simply result in the purification and victory of God’s people. But, God wants His people to understand what is coming and so I write this last article on Mystery Babylon.

After the final 10 nation form of the beast of Revelation (13:1) appears, the ‘little horn’ of Daniel will emerge from them.

“I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.” – Daniel 7:8

He will consolidate 3 of the other horns and begin his work of deception. At first he will seem to be a peacemaker, even making a 7 year covenant with the nation of Israel.

“And he (the false prince) shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.” – Daniel 9:27

Jewish TempleIn the verse before this, this false peacemaker is identified as coming out of restored Rome – ” and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary;”. Historically, we know Rome destroyed Jerusalem and the Temple in 70 AD. This prince will confirm a covenant (peace accord) for one week (7 Biblical years) but, in the middle of that time, he will break it causing the sacrifices and offerings to cease. It is likely that the Temple in Jerusalem is rebuilt before or during the first 3 1/2 years as it is only in the Temple that sacrifices can be made.

I believe that just before this time the war described in Psalm 83 and the war of Gog described in Ezekiel 38, 39 will have happened. The radical Islamic states, Russia, and possibly the United States will have been decimated leaving a political power vacuum into which a restored Rome will move. This will be the beast of Revelation 13 out of which the ‘little horn’ will rise. While this ‘little horn” will be political and warlike in nature, he will have the help of another beast –

“And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.” – Revelation 13:11

He looks like a lamb but, he speaks like a dragon. He is a false Christ. John saw the true Christ standing before the Throne of God. He alone was able to open the 7 sealed book of man’s history and future. The Lamb of God had seven horns which are the seven-fold Spirit of God.

“And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.” – Revelation 5:6

666This false lamb is the one who will institute the mark of the beast and the economic system that allows no one to buy or sell without the mark of the beast. This deceiver is also called the False Prophet in Revelation 19 but he will come to his appointed end just like the first beast.

“And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.” – Revelation 19:20

We know these events are coming and probably not far off. Already there are copycats pretending to be Christian but espousing false teachings. There are even well meaning Christians who are urging government welfare programs whose application leads to the slavery of dependence on government instead of God. Welfare is not the same as charity. Welfare is forced upon a people whereas charity is an act of freewill. We need to understand that a government that can give you everything is a government that can take everything as well! Already America has a President who wants to import Muslim Syrians into the country but turns away Syrian Christians.

As tensions build in the Mideast and persecution of Christians increase worldwide, be aware that they are like the birth pangs of a pregnant woman warning that the birth is not far off. I hope and pray that you are prepared.

“And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.” – Revelation 12:1, 2
