Trump Names Jerusalem as Israel's Capital

What did the Lord tell us about Jerusalem?

Zech 12:1 The burden of the word of the LORD for Israel, saith the LORD, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him.
2 Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem. 3 And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it. 4In that day, saith the LORD, I will smite every horse with astonishment, and his rider with madness: and I will open mine eyes upon the house of Judah, and will smite every horse of the people with blindness. 5And the governors of Judah shall say in their heart, The inhabitants of Jerusalem shall be my strength in the LORD of hosts their God.

Has the Lord made Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people?  You bet He has, even though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.  And what is the Lord's warning to these people who gather against it?  Those who burden themselves with it will be cut in pieces.....

Who is like the Lord our God?  Who tells us exactly what is going to happen thousands of years before it happens?

Is The Lord At Work?

You be the judge:

In a move condemned by most of the world, Donald Trump has announced the US will recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Think really hard about what is happening here ^^.  Who else would do something like this?  The Almighty put Trump in office to do exactly this kind of work.  What politician in his right mind what stand against the entire world to declare Jerusalem the capital of Israel?  Only someone doing the Lord's work. 

Rev 1:4 John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne; 5And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, 6And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen. 7 Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.

When our Lord comes back all the kindreds of the earth will wail because of Him.  Even now, they wail.  His will is being done on earth and the entire earth with all their conspiring and treachery have not been able to stop what our Lord has set in motion.  Is the Lord at work?  You bet He is....

The Lord warned us about 2018.  As we sit near the close of 2017, how is 2018 starting to look?

The Turkish president, Recep Tayyip Erdo─čan, said the US was “plunging the region and the world into a fire with no end in sight”

It is Israel and the United States standing against the entire world.  The entire world stands against Israel (and the Almighty) which is exactly why our Lord said this: 

Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.

And the Lord's response to the entire world standing against Him and His people?  Even so, Amen (so be it).

Glory to God!

US Spends More on Military Than Next 8 Countries Combined

And that was under Obama.  Now with Trump in office that number has gone substantially higher.  Trump wanted to spend 604 Billion and Congress said that wasn't enough, they upped it to $640 Billion.  So what?  Did you ever wonder why the U.S. spends so much on military hardware?  More than the next 8 countries combined?  Because all things serve Him....

Psalm 119:91 Your laws endure to this day, for all things serve you.

What are you talking about brother d?  The U.S. spends the most in the world because the U.S. defends Israel against the rest of the world.  Every UN vote ends up the same, its everyone (except America) against Israel.  That's why we spend so much. 

Why did Trump get elected to office?  Because once again, all things serve the Almighty.  The powers that be in this world wanted to turn America into an Islamic caliphate, just like whats being done to Europe, but the Lord put the brakes on that plan.  Trumps travel ban was just upheld by the Supreme Court.  That Islamic caliphate in America is going to have to wait.  The Lord determines the timing of things, not man.

Its amazing to watch people in the western world welcome their own destroyers with signs cheering them in.  Why would they do that?  Because the Lord put it into their heart to do that.  They are welcoming and even cheering their own destruction:

Ps 81:8Hear me, my people, and I will warn you—
if you would only listen to me, Israel!
9You shall have no foreign god among you;
you shall not worship any god other than me.
10I am the Lord your God,
who brought you up out of Egypt.
Open wide your mouth and I will fill it.
11But my people would not listen to me;
Israel would not submit to me.
12 So I gave them over to their stubborn hearts
to follow their own devices.

What happens to a people when they will not listen?  What happens when a people kicks the Creator out of their society and out of their homes?  He gives them over to their own devices which end up destroying them.

The good news?  Apparently we are not there yet.  The Lord put the brakes on what was happening to America (temporarily) so America could do what it has been doing-defending Israel.  Every one of these crooked politicians and members of the media that goes down in a scandal is buying time as well.  It is truly an amazing thing to watch the Lord work.

So, for as messed up as this world is with all of its problems, be encouraged that the Lord our God is at work on His timeline.  He determines when one man rises up and one falls.  He is at work making one country fall while another rises up. 

Ps 75:7 But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.

Glory to God.  His will be done on earth just as it is in heaven.

Miracles Moving Mountains

Matt 21:20And when the disciples saw it, they marvelled, saying, How soon is the fig tree withered away! 21Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done. 22And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.

The Lord states some facts to us in the Word above which this brother is here to confirm for you today.  The fact is, the Lord God still performs miracle answers to prayer day in and day out, right now today.  This brother testifies to you in truth that the Lord has performed many miracles in my life and in the lives of the brothers and sisters in Christ.  This brother can also testify that the Lord is continuing to perform these miracle answers to prayer through this very day.  What did the Lord say?

If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done

The Lord is moving mountains in the world today and this brother has witnesses it with his own eyes.  So what?  The Lord said He would do it, and He is doing it.  His Word is true.  The message and encouragement for you is "if ye shall say"  that's YOU to this mountain be thou removed and cast into the sea, it will be done.

Part of the work the Lord has given this writer to do is to be a witness and provide a testimony to you that He is doing exactly what He said He would do and He is doing it right now.  Every Word He has written to us can be trusted to the uttermost.  If you need a mountain moved, there is one and only one place you can go to get that done.  It will only be done in Christ and through faith.

The Lord's work was perfect, not a Word too many nor too few in what He has written to us in the Bible.  Every Word is there for a reason.  Now consider how much time spent (relative to other topics in the Bible) on working miracles.  Consider very carefully what our Master told us here:

John 14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. 13And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.

Our Lord turned water into wine and raised the Dead.  He also multiplied fish and bread so what was enough for one to eat became enough for thousands to eat.  He restored sight to the blind.  He promised we would do greater things than that and He will not lie, why should He?  The presence and power of the Lord God Almighty are alive and well on planet earth today.  Anywhere He is, these miracles can and will take place.  That is the testimony of this nobody who writes to you today.  If you need a miracle, no problem-He is in the miracle making business.

This is written to you today to encourage you to pray, and to seek His face.  The Lord is not far off in heaven somewhere busy with other things.  He is right here, right now looking over your shoulder and watching every word and inclination of our hearts.  He is an ever present help.  So ask Him what you need in His name and He will do it.  If you have a mountain that needs to be moved, have faith and do not doubt and say to that mountain be thou removed.

Matt 7:7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: 8For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. 9Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone? 10Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent? 11If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?

Be encouraged because every one that asks receives, he that seeks finds and those who knock have the door openedEvery one.......

There Will Be No "Social Justice"

There is a group of people in the world today who call themselves "social justice warriors."  These people are for just about anyone except...white Christian males.  I asked the Lord about these people and this promotion of everything that is anti-white and anti-Christ and here was the answer: 

there will be no social justice until there is Divine justice.

What exactly does that ^^ mean?  It means who do you think is driving this wedge between members of the human race?  What is the true source of this conflict that gets worse by the day?  Still a little fuzzy?  Maybe this will help:

They kicked the God of peace out of the school room, out of the court room, and out of every other public place to include the churches.  They want peace, but they don't want the God of peace.  Now do you see the problem?  They want peace but what they will get is war.  The want peace but what they will get is division.  They want peace but they will get death.  They want "social justice" but they reject Divine justice.  Really?  Really:

Isa 48:22 There is no peace, saith the LORD, unto the wicked.

They want social justice-they will not get it.  They reject Divine justice-that is exactly what they will get!

The Lord already told us what He has prepared for a wicked, unbelieving world:

Rev 6:3 And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see. 4And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.

Power was given to him to do what?  To take peace from the earth....Take a look around, look familiar?  Peace taken from the earth looks a lot like today and its getting worse....It is the inevitable result of rejecting the God of peace.  They want peace but they will get the sword......

1 Thes 5:3 While people are saying, "Peace and safety," destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.

Peace and justice (yes, including 'social justice') are only attainable when the Spirit of the Lord who is the God of peace holds things together:

Col 1:17 He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.

Unless the people of the nations fall on their faces and repent there will be the sword, hunger, disease and death.  No peace, no safety, just sudden destruction.  Those are not the words of the nobody writing to you today, they are the Words of the Most High God:

Rev 6:5And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. 6And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.
The Fourth Seal: Death
7And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. 8And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.

Rev 9:1 And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. 2And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. 3And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. 4And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads. 5And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man. 6And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.

I am amazed when I read articles like this:

Australia Votes Overwhelmingly For Gay Marriage After Heated Campaign

How much longer will the Lord God stand by and watch mankind flaunt wickedness in His face?  Someone smarter than this writer said this:

"If the Lord does not come back soon to judge this world, He is going to have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah."

^^Spot on.  Enough is enough.  Which is why the Lord also said this:

2 Peter 4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; 5And 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; 6And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;

7And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked: 8(For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;) 9 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:

So if you are vexed at seeing and hearing the never ending stream of corruption, lies, murder, fraud, deceit, and sexual perversions of every kind that slosh back and forth over this world like giant waves of sewage, then take heart-the Lord delivered Lot (who suffered the same things) and He knows how to deliver you...Glory to God.

11/12/17 Warning and Reminder

During the 2017 Fall Feasts we saw a nexus of events that were remarkable.  The great American eclipse and the Revelation 12 sign in the heavens were part of these events.  Many people looked at these events and decided in their own minds that if nothing happened on one day or another, the celestial events were meaningless.  How wrong they were and how wrong they are.  The events we saw in August and September 2017 are directly related to the blood moons of 2014-2015 the the re-emergent Shemitah cycle.  Together, they all point to the return of the Lord God.  When the Lord did not return in 2014, 2015, or 2017 we heard mocking and ridicule.  What the mockers really mock is themselves.  They do not take into account that mankind did not place these signs in the heavens or these cycles (the Shemitah cycle) on earth.  The Lord alone did these things which is why we can have confidence that we are not being misled.

This brother was personally warned about the great American eclipse linked to 2018 and beyond.  We were given 40 days, from the day of the eclipse through Yom Kippur 2017 to repent.  You be the judge if America repented during those 40 days.  The eclipse was in August, Yom Kippur was in late September/October and now in November we are seeing major transformations take place across the world.  Here is a prime example:

If The Saudi Arabia Situation Doesn't Worry You, You're Not Paying Attention

What is going on here ^^?  The United States mantle of leadership is being given to another.  What does the Lord say about this? 

Psalm 75:6For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south.
7But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.

What is happening right now?  America is being put down and China is being set up.  Its not just the author of the above article who is saying this, some of the most respected names in the financial community are saying the same thing.  China is the future.  While America is preoccupied with the color of people's skin, whether or not transvestites can share a bathroom with little girls, and the 'virtues' of Islam while removing the God of Creation from every aspect of public life;  China is cutting deals with the rest of the world and strengthening its global position in every way possible.  We cannot say that we were not warned.

A Reminder:

The Lord told us He would come back for us on some unknown day and hour. 

Mark 13:32“But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. 33Be on guard! Be alerte ! You do not know when that time will come. 34It’s like a man going away: He leaves his house and puts his servants in charge, each with their assigned task, and tells the one at the door to keep watch.
35“Therefore keep watch because you do not know when the owner of the house will come back—whether in the evening, or at midnight, or when the rooster crows, or at dawn. 36If he comes suddenly, do not let him find you sleeping. 37What I say to you, I say to everyone: ‘Watch!’ ”

His statement points to both: 1.  The Feast of Trumpets on some unknown year and equally to 2. any given day of any year.  So, the Lord would be precisely correct with His Word unblemished if He were to arrive unexpectedly today to pull His bride out of here.  We are to live each day as if it were our last because the truth is, nobody guaranteed us we would see tomorrow on this earth.

On a final note, the Lord impressed upon my mind a sobering picture summed up by this statement:  all roads lead to the graveyard.  Everyone on this earth, rich and poor, small and great, famous and infamous, beautiful, handsome, ugly, etc etc ALL end up in the same place-the graveyard.  So as we look around at this world and see things that provoke us, just remember all roads lead to the graveyard.  I read a quote awhile ago that says the graveyard is full of 'indispensable' people.  To which we can all reflect and say amen. 

Psalm 90:10 The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.
11Who knoweth the power of thine anger? even according to thy fear, so is thy wrath.
12So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.

Eccl. 7:2-4 "It is better to go to the house of mourning, than to go to the house of feasting: for that is the end of all men; and the living will lay it to his heart. 3 Sorrow is better than laughter: for by the sadness of the countenance the heart is made better. 4 The heart of the wise is in the house of mourning; but the heart of fools is in the house of mirth."

These are the thoughts the Lord God has impressed upon this writer in recent days.

Repentance and Rest

Before we get to a note of encouragement from the Lord, let us remember.  Remember what brother D?  Remember the warnings.  We are not even 90 days from the great American eclipse and Yom Kippur warnings and for the vast majority it is all forgotten.  These recent warnings are forgotten just as the blood moon tetrad warnings have been forgotten.  Why are the warnings forgotten?  Because this world has an attention span of about 15 seconds.  15 seconds after the warnings took place the scoffers came out to "debunk" the warnings then everything was summarily forgotten.  What is the problem with all this?  Here:

2 Peter 3:8But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 9The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

^^ The warnings are real, but what does the Lord do?  He exercises patience and longsuffering towards us.  We must not mistake the Lord's patience and longsuffering with slack.  The Lord has not forgotten anything, He is watching and waiting.  As an insight into this watching and waiting the great American eclipse will be repeated in 7 years, in 2024 creating and X across the country.

Do we have 7 more years to wait until the other shoe drops for America?  Its very possible.  Mankind sees 7 years as a mini-eternity yet our Lord sees it as the blink of an eye.  As a point of reference the blood moons took place in 2014-2015 which was only 2-3 years ago and look at how the world has changed in those 2-3 years.

Whats the point brother?  The point is, we must remember.  We must remember the promises.  We must remember the warnings and take all of it seriously.  Look around and you tell me if this world is headed to greener pastures and better days?  The best is not just around the corner for this world, the way we know this with 100% certainty is because the distance between this world and its Creator is growing by the day.

On to Encouragement....

On a more uplifting note the Lord recently impressed this writer with some encouragement:

Isa 30:15This is what the Sovereign Lord, the Holy One of Israel, says:
“In repentance and rest is your salvation,
in quietness and trust is your strength,
but you would have none of it.

In the midst of a stern warning to Israel we find the Lord's encouragement.  What is He saying up there ^^?

Think about what He has called us to:

1. repentance
2. rest
3. quietness
4. trust

When I read that, every fiber of my being says YESSSSSSSS, give me more of that!
We do not have to strive and agonize and push and shove our way forward.  All we have to do is repent and rest in quietness and trust.  You want a formula for success?  That's it.  In the midst of all the chaos and turmoil we are to repent and rest.  In the midst of all the striving and agonizing we are to be quiet and trust in our God.  That's it.  Thank the Lord our God for His wonderful mercy towards us who love Him.

Continue the path forward remembering our Lord's promises and His warnings:

Isa 3:10 Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings.
11Woe unto the wicked! it shall be ill with him: for the reward of his hands shall be given him.

Nothing Happened?

After the blood moons of 2014-2015 they said "nothing happened."  After the 'great American eclipse' of 2017 they said "nothing happened."  After the 40 day warning period that ended on Yom Kippur 2017, they told us "nothing happened."  And?  They were wrong.  What happened?  We were warned.  Over and over again the Spirit of the Lord has emphasized that we are to take the warnings seriously.  Instead, many choose to mock then go back to sleep.

What is coming on this world is unlike anything mankind has ever seen or experienced.....ever.

Dan 12:1And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book. 2And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. 3And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever. 4But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.


Luke 21:25And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; 26 Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. 27And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

Are men's hearts failing them for fear?  Not yet, but its coming.  This is the part too many people are not getting.  Too many are too quick to brush everything off and claim its time to go back to sleep.  That is a big mistake.  The Lord has spent a period of decades now (going back to the reformation of Israel and carrying on with the re-emergence of the Shemitah cycle to warn this world that what He promised, will be delivered.

The Lord God is not the author of empty words.  When He tells us something is going to happen, it is guaranteed, its going to happen.  He is also a God of perfect timing.  He does not warn out of season.  If we are seeing the warnings then we are "in season" for what is coming.  Look around, does it look like things are getting better to you?  No, things are getting demonstrably worse on every front.  The fabric of everything is tearing at the seams.  Unfortunately humans have a way or normalizing everything.  100 year floods, 100 year fires, 100 year droughts have all become every year events and we just blow it all off as the new normal. 

What is it going to take to get people's attention?  More pain, more suffering, more disaster, more death.  "Wow brother D, that's pretty strong do you have any evidence for that?"  Glad you asked:

The people we read about below have been getting pounded, yet what does the Lord tell us about them?

Rev 9:20  And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:

When a storm is coming, the time to prepare your rain gear is before the storm arrives, not when the downpour soaks your head.  A storm is coming.  The signs that were placed in the sky for all of us to see were not put there by men, nor can they be faked so mankind cannot explain them away.  No, the signs we have all seen leave us without excuse.

What are we to do to prepare?  Fast.  Pray.  Stay in the Word.  You know, the same things He has told us to do for thousands of years.  Do those things.

Everything Is Not Okay, and the Coast is Not Clear

Now that the 40 day warning from 8/21 through Yom Kippur has been completed, it is time for delivery on the warning.  Has the Lord already delivered on His warning?  Yes, but only in part.  The worst mass shooting in United States history that took place in Las Vegas the day after the warning period ended, was not the end of what is coming...

The Spirit of the Lord is on this writer to tell you the coast is not clear and there will be no returning to "business as usual."  As it was written here before, this writer received some personal warnings about what is coming and so far those warnings have no been delivered upon.  What are you talking about brother?  The hand of the Almighty has been upon this writer to impress that we need to be ready for what is coming.

I have a hard time explaining exactly what this impression is upon my spirit but my best shot at it is:

1.  We have not been released to go back to 'business as usual' watching and readiness.  So, we were on high watch for the Feast of Trumpets and we are to stay at a higher rate of alert than usual?

2.  The Spirit of the Lord has gone out of His way to impress upon this writer that ?all is not well?, ?we need to continue to watch and be ready on high alert? ?something else is coming that is going to really, really not be good?  The only way to describe it well is His hand is heavy upon this writer's heart and spirit in a way, and for a length of time now that has not been experienced in a lifetime.  There is something the Spirit of the Lord is pointing to in the future that we need to be prayed up for, and ready for.  There is no special day, or Feast or anything else like that the Spirit is pointing to-we just need to be ready.

3.  This writer has tried to go back to 'business as usual' watching and readiness and the Lord is not having it.  There is something coming and He wants us ready for it.  As usual, speaking of times and dates does not apply, timing is the Lord's alone.

It is probably not explained well but hopefully you get the idea.  The Lord is clearly stating in no uncertain terms that the coast is not clear, and no we are not all set to go back to business as usual.  The work given to this writer is to make sure that I am praying, fasting, staying in the Word and to pass the same message on to you.  Whatever this is, it is serious.  Be ready.

New Year For Trees 2018

This writer was given specific personal warning about 2018

Brother Blitz just put out an excellent video about the new year for the trees (Rosh Hashanah for the trees..Tu B'shvat)

Listen to what this brother is telling us and combine it with everything else we have been seeing.  What's coming in 2018?  3 more blood moons on significant Hebrew calendar days.  When is the next Tu B'Shvat?  Looks like its in January, 2018 (Torah Calendar places it in early Feb 2018) .   

So what?  So, in His mercy the Lord has gone out of His way to warn us before everything that has happened and is about to happen.  Blood moons in 2014-2015 was a warning.  The great American eclipse was a warning.  The re-emergence of the Shemitah cycle was a warning.  The coming blood moons in 2018 are a warning.  The personal warnings some of us have received are a warning.  Warning of what?  Again, no need to predict anything.  What is going to happen is exactly what the Almighty told us would happen.  Our job is not to predict it, He already did that.  Our job is to watch and be ready: 1. because He told us to always be watching and praying and 2. because we take His warnings seriously.

2 Days Till The Conclusion of the 40 Day Warning

Time is up at nightfall two days from now.  We have been warned and this writer sees zero signs of national repentance from America.  In fact, the "great American eclipse" was forgotten by most the hour it was over.  What happens in two days?  The doors close on the warning period and the doors open on the delivery period.  The best and most recent example of how this works was the lunar tetrad of 2014-2015 and what happened to the Middle East and Europe.  They have both been forever transformed (and the process is not complete).  What happened occurred over time, not on one day.  Another example: when Noah entered the ark on the 7th day, it began to rain and continued to rain for 40 days.  It didn't all take place on one day.

Is that it brother D, just brace for judgement?  No, what is coming after 9/30/17 serves the same purpose that has been established for thousands of years:

1 Tim 2:1I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; 2For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. 3For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; 4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. 

Nobody knows exactly what the Lord has in store for the days ahead.  What we do know with certainty is:  1.  The United States was specifically marked/warned on 8/21/17.  2.  There is a time associated with that warning which ends on Yom Kippur.  The time given was 40 days which the Lord has used countless times as a time of trial and testing.

Whatever ends up happening to America, we can be sure it will be toward some prophetic fulfillment for Israel.  When America is taken out of the way, the end game for Israel begins.  The way things appear today, that time is not far off.

Prepared To Wait

When a Feast of Trumpets comes and goes and we see the Lord has decided to tarry, it is not time to go back to sleep.  There are at least two reasons for this:

1.  We have no idea how long He will tarry-When He told us no man knows the day or hour that can mean either the Feast of Trumpets or any other days of the year.  The Feast of Trumpets appears to be the most likely season for the Lord to come back for us but we also have to take the other possibility (any other day) just as seriously because either way His Word will be fulfilled precisely.


2.  Everything is a test-the Lord is constantly watching our hearts and minds to see how we respond to things.  Are we responding in faith and obedience or are we responding some other way:

Deut 8:2 Remember how the LORD your God led you all the way in the wilderness these forty years, to humble and test you in order to know what was in your heart, whether or not you would keep his commands.

When the Lord tarries will we keep His command to continually watch?  Are we prepared to watch for another 20 or 30 or more Feast of Trumpets seasons without Him showing up and we continue to watch?  How long do we continue to watch?  As long as it takes....We have to make up our minds beforehand that we are in this till the end, however long that takes.  We will not make the same mistake made by the foolish virgins:

Matt 25:1Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. 2And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. 3 They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: 4But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. 5While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. 6And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. 7Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. 8And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. 9But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. 10And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. 11Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. 12But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. 13Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

What was their mistake?  They had not prepared to wait.  The wise took oil with them.  There is one and only one reason behind this, they were prepared to wait....

While we wait we can be encouraged by the fact that the Lord is hard at work in this world setting the stage for what is to come.  The natural disasters are getting worse and more frequent.  People are ready to rip their neighbors head off for looking at them the wrong way.  There is a sovereign debt crisis (Mr. Martin Armstrong's work) that begins next year which will set the stage for the one world financial system.  And last but most certainly not least the Lord Himself has given us a multitude of signs signaling to us that time is short.  Make no mistake, the lunar tetrad on the Lord's feast days and this recent "great American eclipse" were signed and sealed by the Almighty.  This world has been transformed in the mere two years since the last of the blood moons in 2015.  The poster children for this transformation are Europe and the Middle East.

We will soon be able to add to the list of transformation the United States which has been singled out among the nations.  The United States and Israel are joined at the hip.  What is bad for one is bad for the other.  Israel should be shuddering at what is happening to the U.S.  When the United States is taken out of the way, this is next:

Luke 21:20 And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh. 21Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto. 22For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled. 23But woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck, in those days! for there shall be great distress in the land, and wrath upon this people. 24And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.

Even now the middle east is being transformed to accomplish this ^^ very purpose. 

Babylon is the west.  Specifically it is either America or the "new" transformed Europe or both.  Either way the judgement of this Babylonian system is coming:

18:4And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. 5For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. 6Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double. 7How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow. 8Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.

We have been warned and as it has been said here time and again we do not have to predict what is coming.  He already predicted everything.  Re-read Revelation 18 above, Babylon is going to burn...utterly.  Death, mourning and famine, in one day.  That's what is coming.  So, now is not a good time to go back to sleep.  Keep your oil full and your lamps trimmed for the Bridegroom IS coming and we must be watching and ready when He does.

40 and 7, The Lord's Stamps of Authenticity on The Great American Eclipse

The great American eclipse took place on 8/21/17.  40 days later is Yom Kippur.  7 years later is the next "great American eclipse.  See the numbers there?  40 and 7?  What has the Lord God told us?

Luke 17:26 And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. 27They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. 28Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; 29But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. 30Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed

As it was in the days of Noah huh?  Yep, the days of Noah.  And what happened in the days of Noah?  Lets take a look in Genesis seven and find out:

Gen 7:1The Lord then said to Noah, “Go into the ark, you and your whole family, because I have found you righteous in this generation. 2Take with you seven pairs of every kind of clean animal, a male and its mate, and one pair of every kind of unclean animal, a male and its mate, 3and also seven pairs of every kind of bird, male and female, to keep their various kinds alive throughout the earth. 4Seven days from now I will send rain on the earth for forty days and forty nights, and I will wipe from the face of the earth every living creature I have made.”

Seven, seven, seven and forty.  What's the point brother d?  The point is, the Lord God marked the great American eclipse with His seal of authenticity so we can know without a doubt who sent us this sign.  This was not just another ordinary eclipse.  What else?  The direct tie in to the days of Noah.  We were told by the Lord (not man) that as it was in the days of Noah so shall it be in the days of the Son of man.  Well, what we are seeing is direct confirmation by the Almighty that He considers these days as the days of the Son of man. 

What is another take away from this ^^?  A not so small lesson for the mockers and scoffers.  The Lord told Noah that He would wipe every living creature from the face of the earth and it would begin in 7 days.  There is a parallel to our days that we need to see here.  What happened on day 7?  It started to rain, but to the mockers "nothing happened" right?  "We get rain all the time, nothing to see here!"  To the scoffer and mocker "nothing happened" on day 7, what was their mistake?  In their haste to mock, they missed the forest for the trees.  39 days after day 7 do you think anyone was mocking or scoffing?  No, because they were all dead....

America has been given a parallel warning (40/7).  40 is a time of trial and testing and America's days of trial and testing are almost up.  We are down to 7 days.  What happens at the end of the seven days?  To the eyes of a mocker "nothing."  Just like on the blood moon days of 2014-2015, "nothing" happened on those days but immediately after the last blood moon guess what happened?  The Islamic invasion of Europe began in earnest.  One could say "it started to rain" but in this case it was raining Islam instead of raining water.  What else happened?  The war in Syria kicked into high gear.  No we stand two years distant from the last blood moon on 2015 and we can say with certainty that the mockers and scoffers were certifiably mistaken.  Yea, something happened all right and that something is assuredly bad for Israel just as the blood moons testified to us.

Europe was already anti-Semitic before the Islamic invasion.  Now, with Islam being championed from every corner Europe, anti-Semitism will be on steroids.  What else is bad for Israel in this?  The combined military forces of Europe are formidable.  Now that the leaders of Europe (like Merkel) have shown that they are champions of Islam it is safe to say Europe's military is in the hands of Islam.  What else?  Hezbollah, Iran (the Medes) and Russia are all firmly entrenched in Syria, right on Israel's doorstep.  Hezbollah is even building missile factories now in Syria.  Who exactly was it the Lord says He would raise up as an adversary in these last days?

Isaiah 13:17 Behold, I will stir up the Medes against them, which shall not regard silver; and as for gold, they shall not delight in it.

So the scoffers and mockers might want to give a little time and space before they begin mocking on Yom Kippur this year.  The Lord has delivered on every warning, without fail.  This one will be no different.  America needs to repent.  We need to get on our knees in obedience and do what we were told to do.  Every knee will bow, they can either do it now or they can do it later but they will do it.....

Isa 45:22“Turn to me and be saved,
all you ends of the earth;
for I am God, and there is no other.
23By myself I have sworn,
my mouth has uttered in all integrity
a word that will not be revoked:
Before me every knee will bow;
by me every tongue will swear.
24They will say of me, ‘In the Lord alone
are deliverance and strength.’ ”
All who have raged against him
will come to him and be put to shame.
25But all the descendants of Israel
will find deliverance in the Lord
and will make their boast in him.

Phi 2:5Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: 6Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: 7But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: 8And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. 9Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: 10That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; 11And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

The Lord Did Not Rapture The Church on The Feast of Trumpets 2017

Those who predicted it as a definite event were wrong.  Equally wrong were those who said it absolutely would not happen.  Why were they wrong?  If the angels in heaven nor the Son knows the day or hour, how could they know it definitely would not happen?  Who was right?  Those who were watching and ready in obedience to the multiple commandments to watch-they were right to be watching.

Now what?  We continue to do what we were told to do:  watch and pray-always:

Luke 21:36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

Could the Lord arrive unexpectedly tomorrow?  Yes.  How about next week or next month?  Yep.  We should be cautioned about letting our guard down now, especially in light of the multiple warnings we have been given.  America has been given a 40 day warning which started on 8/21/17, the day of the "great American eclipse" and ends on Yom Kippur.  This world is being warned at the same time during this same warning period.  Natural disasters of every flavor are striking around the world on a daily basis.

What about the Revelation 12 sign on 9/23/17?  What does the Word say?

Rev 12:1And 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: 2And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.

There is a sign coming, and that sign is where?  In heaven.  That means up above our heads.  Where was the 8/21 great American eclipse sign?  Same place, up above our heads.  The good news?  These signs cannot be faked.  Is the 9/23/17 event the Revelation 12 sign?  This writer does not know, and because neither I, nor any other man know for sure, we need to take it seriously in case it is.  We are in a 40 day time of trial and testing that only the Lord knows the exact purpose of.

What happens at the end of the 40 days?  Most likely on that day nothing apparent to the human eye just as each of the blood moons on the feast days in 2014-2015 passed with scoffers and mockers claiming "nothing happened."  What is important is what happens (most likely) after Yom Kippur.  It doesn't take a prophet to look around at the world and compare what we see happening with the Word of God to know this world is in serious trouble. 

Repent, fast, pray, stay in the Word, or else....Or else what brother D?  Again, no predictions from man are necessary.  The Almighty already told us exactly what is going to happen.  Read Revelation.  Read the prophets.  That's what is going to happen.  It is 100% guaranteed without any need of predictions from mankind.  The Lord is coming back unexpectedly and this world is going to be pummeled.  Some will be spared, some will die in the tribulation, some will stand before the Lord having escaped "all these things that shall come to pass:"

Luke 21:36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

The answer to "what now?" for us who believe is to do what we were told to do:  repent, fast, pray, stay in the Word, and be watching for the return of the Lord-every day.  As with everything the Lord told us to do there are multiple layers of wisdom woven into every Word He gave us.  Being watchful and ready every day is important both from the standpoint of the Lord coming back for us, and also because nobody guaranteed any of us that we will live to see tomorrow.  One way or another, with time passing faster (seemingly) every day, we will be face to face with our Master very soon.

Rosh Hashanah High Watch Extension

Normally when the new moon is sighted in Jerusalem, we can call it a new year and know that the Lord is going to tarry.  In this case, this year with so many signs and signals packed into such a short period (the 40 day warning period from 8/21-great eclipse through Yom Kippur), we would be wise to maintain our high watch for at least another day-through sunset at least of 9/23/17.

We are always to be watching, but there are times when we should be on high watch (high alert).  This is one of those times.  If the Lord tarries through 9/23 we must continue to maintain our vigil-watching always for His return.  No man knows the day or hour points at a minimum to both: 1.  the feast of trumpets/Rosh Hashanah and 2.  Every other day until He arrives.

The Lord has gone out of His way to warn us this time, we would be wise to always be on the alert and watching.  We may not understand exactly what it is He is pointing to but we can be absolutely certain we have been warned and it was the Lord God who did the warning.  We know because no many can issue the kinds of warnings we have received.  The warnings started with the re-emergence of the Shemitah cycle, the reformation of the nation of Israel, the blood moon tetrad precisely on the Lord's feast days, and the total solar eclipse between the lunar tetrad years.  In the recent past, the great American eclipse this year 40 days from Yom Kippur along with a host of disasters and a string of personal signs warn this writer, who in turn warns you that we have put 'business as usual' in the rear view mirror for the foreseeable future.

This writer does not know on what day the Lord is going to act, but the Lord IS going to act.  How can we be so sure?  He already told us what He is going to do.  HE already 'predicted' exactly what is going to happen.  Turn your Bible to the book of Revelation and the book of Daniel and start reading.  That is what is going to happenWhen these things begin to happen, we need to look up.

Massive Earthquake Hits Mexico, Volcano Erupts Soon After

Earthquake link
Volcano link.

And Puerto Rico appears poised to be leveled by yet another CAT 4+ hurricane, hurricane Maria.

And all this ^^ comes right on the heels of two CAT 4 hurricanes hitting the United States almost back to back.  The cleanup and recovery has only just begun in both places and here comes another one.  So whats going on?  Its called getting our attention.  There are Christians all over the world who need to have their attention refocused.  Who wants their attention?  You guessed it, Almighty God.

When you read the book of Revelation you see progressive judgements and progressive wrath.  The Lord works His way up from "oh, that's bad" to "the end is here, the wrath of God is upon us."

Rev 6:12And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; 13And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. 14And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. 15And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; 16And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: 17For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

Notice in verses 15-17 above, He does get their attention...No its not 'global warming' and its a lot more than 'climate change,' its called the wrath of God.  But we are not there yet.  We are still in the beginning stages:

Matt 24:5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. 6And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. 8All these are the beginning of sorrows.

He has our attention, but there is still work to do.  Others need to be awakened from their slumber.  The sooner the people on this earth see and understand the hand of the Almighty in what is happening, the better.  In all of the sorrow the world has recently experienced, there is still hope.  The hope is in repentance, fasting, praying
and obedience.  Mankind has to yield.  We must bend the knee and confess that God is God and we are just mankind, weak and short lived.  Any worth, any value we have is to be found in Christ alone.

This ^^ is what is playing out before our eyes.  Space rocks are also falling on the earth recently with greater intensity.  The sun is getting very active at a time when scientists believed it should be going to sleep.  These are all steps in the multi-staged divine plan to disabuse the inhabitants of earth of their false notions.  "Global warming" is not causing space rocks to fall on the earth.  And the carbon dioxide from your SUV isn't causing the sun to emit multiple serious X class flares back to back.  No, its the hand of God working to get our attention.  For some, it is working.  He has our attention.  For others its going to take more sorrow to turn their faces up.  Either way, His will, will be done here on earth just as it is in heaven.  Glory to God.

Drills, Training and The Christian

This writer has worked in or around the military his entire adult life.  One thing that is common knowledge in the military is you have to drill, you have to train to fight.  Nobody with any sense believes you can not train and win when its time for war.  There is a direct parallel to what we are called to do as Christians.  The Lord told us over and over again to be always watching for His return and praying.  We, as Christian soldiers are doing the exact same thing when we watch, pray and live prepared for the Lord's return at any moment. 

The soldier has no idea if they are going to be called to war tonight, or tomorrow or the next week.  They just have to be ready for it when it happens.  The same exact thinking applies to us.  We have no idea if the Lord is going to show up for us tonight, tomorrow or next week.  We just have to be ready for it when it happens.

Tomorrow At Sundown-Feast of Trumpets 2017

Tomorrow at sundown the feast of trumpets-Rosh Hashanah begins.  Do we know if the Lord will come back for us tomorrow or at any time over this Feast of Trumpets?  No, we do not.  Will we be watching and ready if He does?  Yes, we will.

We need to be ready either way.  If He shows up, thank the Lord.  If He does not, we continue to watch and wait.

Meanwhile, this world is accelerating into decline, decay and destruction on every front.  We have been warned about what is coming.  Our job is to watch and when we are warned to take the warnings seriously.  The Lord never told us to try to predict the day He is coming.  He did tell us to continually be watching for it.

The Revelation 12 Sign, 9/23/17

A day or two ago this writer stated that the Lord had not given anything to me personally about the Revelation 12 sign on 9/23/17.  Well, as of last night that changed.  The Almighty did confirm to me through a personal sign that this Revelation 12 sign is from Him.

It makes this writer nervous to write things like this ^^ but it has to be written.   Let me give you one more personal sign that makes this writer nervous.  A personal sign was given a couple of weeks ago to be prepared to leave.  You do not read things like that on this blog because these are first time in a lifetime signs.   These signs can be written here because they were not given to someone else, they were given to me personally.   

In this season we are to repent, watch, pray and be ready for what comes next.  This writer is predicting nothing, it is the Lord who is giving the signs, not man.  So what now?  We are to do what we were told to do.  Be watching-always, and pray that we may be accounted worthy to escape all that is about to happen.  If we do what we were told to do we will not be caught sleeping and unprepared when the Master arrives.

3 Days Till The Feast of Trumpets-Be Watching and Ready

Rosh Hashanah 2017
  • begins Wednesday, September 20
    • at sunset (in 3 days)
  • ends Friday, September 22
    • at nightfall
It is our duty to be watching and ready for the Lord's arrival on the feast of trumpets every year.  We do not know the day or hour He will come back.  That saying has a double meaning just as many things our Lord said have double or triple meanings.  He said what He said in such a way to confound the casual reader.  In this case He said no many knows the day or hour of His secret return.  That is 100% true.  Is it possible to know within two days?  Yes-the Feast of Trumpets.  Is it possible to know the season?  Yes, the fall.  Who "predicted" that the Feast of Trumpets will have a prophetic fulfillment.  The Lord God did.

So what?  So those who know for a fact that all 4 of the spring feasts were prophetically fulfilled-to the very day- and refuse to watch for the fulfillment of the next one will be found without an excuse when it happens.  We have been warned extensively.  We have had signs in the sun, moon and stars.  We have the world in complete upheaval socially, spiritually, naturally, economically, and yet many still refuse to watch.

The Lord Himself told us to watch, watch, watch.  For what?  For Him.  For His return.  Does it sound like a broken record?  It should, that's the point.  The Lord repeated Himself over and over again on this point which is something He does not do unless it is critically important. 

What happens if the Lord does not come back this year on the Feast of Trumpets?

1.  The feast of Trumpets is not the only time we are watching for His return.  What were His instructions to us? 

Luke 21:36 36 Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man."

Right ^^ always means always.  Always means every day, so we continue watching-always.

2.  The Feast of Trumpets takes place every year which means we will heighten our watching and readiness again next year without failing to watch and pray every day as we were commanded.

Be watching and be ready.  Those were the commands our Master left for us.  Those who refuse to do this, will likely be sorely disappointed.  The scoffers and mockers like to ask us what happens when we are "wrong" when each year so far the Lord has tarried on the Feast of Trumpets.  I like to turn this question around on them.  What happens when they are wrong and left behind?  They like to ask us what will happen to our faith when the Lord doesn't arrive on this years Feast of Trumpets and I like to counter with whats going to happen to their faith when He does..........

This watching and readiness has ZERO to do with mankind predicting what is going to happen.  It has everything to do with each and every Divine appointment/Feast day/Moed predicting that something is going to happen.  Man did not predict this, the Lord God did.  The Lord God is the one who commanded the repeated observance of Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur and Sukkot.  Our watching and readiness is predicated on our Lord's commands to us.  It is also heightened by signs in the heavens and signs on earth.

The Lord told us to watch and this writer intends to do exactly what the Lord commanded.  This writer will be watching for the Lord Jesus Christ to do exactly what He said He would do and arrive on an unexpected day and hour.

I'm sorry if my logic is off here but lets consider how this could possibly play out:

1.  The obedient do what the Lord commanded and are watching and ready EVERY DAY, but especially around the Fall feast days.  When the Lord does arrive some day, where exactly is the downside for one who is found watching on that day?

2.  The scoffers and deniers make their decision to start watching on some day or other in the future (?)-whenever that is, the Lord shows up on a different day.  There is plenty of downside in that scenario.  They refused to watch and as a result the Lord arrives "as a thief."

Rev 3:2Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God. 3Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee. 

There is no downside, no risk, no problem, no disobedience in watching for our Lord's return EVERY DAY.  All of the downside risk lies with those who refuse to do what they were clearly told to do-be always on the watch

The warnings are clear.  Be watching or else....

grace and peace

Revelation 12 Sign Debunked? Go Back to Sleep...

Every day there are more scoffers coming out of the woodwork to "debunk" the Revelation 12 sign in the heavens on 9/23/17.  Basically the message is "nothing to see here, now go back to sleep."  That's fine, debunk away.  The Lord did not impress this writer with warnings about 9/23/17 or the Revelation 12 sign.  This writer was impressed by the warnings given by the lunar tetrad on the Lord's feast days in 2014-2015.  Anyone care to debunk those warnings?  They tried, and failed.  This writer has recently been warned about the 8/21/17 "great American eclipse" 40 day warning ending on Yom Kippur which is why we have been counting it down here.  The first eclipse took place on 8/21/17, with a follow up "great American eclipse" 7 years later. 

Israel was founded as a nation in 1947/1948 depending on how you want to calculate it.  70 years later (one Biblical generation) brings us to 2017/2018.  This writer has been given specific, personal warnings to prepare for this season.  Specifically, a warning has been given about 2018.  We also have each of the fall feast days, Hebrew "Moed" or Divine appointments.  Each of those feast days carries with it, its own warning of impending fulfillment or do the scoffers doubt that the Lord plans to do exactly what He promised to do on the unfulfilled feast days, as He has done precisely to the day for each of the spring feasts?

We have been warned.  This writer has been warned personally to prepare for what is coming.  Each post here has had similar wording that reflects the warning.  Forget about trying to predict what is going to happen.  We already know what is going to happen.  We were not told to predict what is going to happen.  We were told to be watching (always) and praying.  Watching for what?  For HIM.  And when we are warned, to respect the warnings and take appropriate action.  Like what?  Like doing what we were told to do: repent, fast, pray, be watching and ready.  Debunk that.....

The Lord is not wordy.  He knows how to make His point in very few words so when He repeats something over, and over and over again we better pay attention.  How many times did He warns us to watch for His arrival?

Luke 21:34And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. 35For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. 36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

Mark 13:32But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.
33Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is. 34For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch. 35 Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: 36Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping. 37And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.

Matt 25:1Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. 2And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. 3They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: 4But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. 5While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. 6And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. 7Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. 8And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. 9But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. 10And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. 11Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. 12But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. 13Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

Rev 3:1And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead. 2 Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God. 3Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee. 4Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy. 5He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels. 6He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Watch, watch, watch, watch, watch...Watch for what?  FOR HIM.  For a God who is not wordy He certainly put in the effort on this point to repeat Himself multiple times.  Maybe, just maybe He wants us to watch for His arrival.  Maybe He considered this such an important point that He wanted us in no way shape or form to miss it.  I saw one preacher write off all of this ^^, all four gospels- Matthew, Mark, Luke and John with "He was talking to the Jews, its not for us."  Say what??????? 

Matthew 25 is very clear, there are wise and foolish virgins.  We also know there will be believers on the earth during the tribulation period.  Who will they be?  Perhaps the ones who cannot inherit certain promises due to their unbelief:

Hebrews 6:12 That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.

Matt 8:13 And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour.

Mark 6:4But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house. 5And he could there do no mighty work, save that he laid his hands upon a few sick folk, and healed them. 6And he marvelled because of their unbelief. And he went round about the villages, teaching.

I'm not sure what else the Lord would need to do to get people's attention.  He has sent sign after sign, signal after signal and yet many are still sound asleep with many so called men of God singing the lullaby.  This writer prays that neither you or I are caught sleeping when the Master arrives.
