Discovery of the Truth and Hidden Treasure

Recently I was thinking to myself, man, you're all over the place with your thoughts! Here's the thing, when you start uncovering lies, and getting closer to the truth, it requires a re-evaluation of everything you thought you knew, more prayer, and more digging.

To discover the truth requires real effort, as I've said for a long time now, you have to really want it. Why have I said this? Because the bible said it first:

Prov 2:2
3 Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding;
4 If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures;
5 Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God.

Over the past days I've been discussing how Daniel 9:27 does not mean what we have been taught for generations now. We were told that Dan 9:27 says there will be a peace treaty between Israel and the anti-christ. The huge flaw with this reasoning is that neither peace, nor Israel are mentioned. A covenant is mentioned, but not with a single country, and not with Israel specifically, the covenant is with many.

So I've been focused in on Daniel 9:27. Today I'm digging around and learn something else. The more I dig, the more I see how the bible has been twisted and distorted over time to fit mens ideas rather than what God wrote. There are versions of the bible that have been published recently that are so sickeningly, blatantly false that I would'nt even touch the paper they were written on. What gets me on this topic this morning is research on Daniel 9:27.

Did you know that the oldest, or one of the oldest and most accurate translations of the old testament is called the Septuagint? Go look it up online, here's one place you can read about it:

Septuagint - What is It?Septuagint (sometimes abbreviated LXX) is the name given to the Greek translation of the Jewish Scriptures. The Septuagint has its origin in Alexandria, Egypt and was translated between 300-200 BC. Widely used among Hellenistic Jews, this Greek translation was produced because many Jews spread throughout the empire were beginning to lose their Hebrew language. The process of translating the Hebrew to Greek also gave many non-Jews a glimpse into Judaism. According to an ancient document called the Letter of Aristeas, it is believed that 70 to 72 Jewish scholars were commissioned during the reign of Ptolemy Philadelphus to carry out the task of translation. The term “Septuagint” means seventy in Latin, and the text is so named to the credit of these 70 scholars.

or here:

The earliest version of the Old Testament Scriptures which is extant, or of which we possess any certain knowledge, is the translation executed at Alexandria in the third century before the Christian era: this version has been so habitually known by the name of the SEPTUAGINT, that the attempt of some learned men in modern times to introduce the designation of the Alexandrian version (as more correct) has been far from successful. The history of the origin of this translation was embellished with various fables at so early a period, that it has been a work of patient critical research in later times to bring into plain light the facts which may be regarded as well authenticated." Sir Lancelot C. L. Brenton 1851

From today forward I'm going straight to the septuagint when researching the old testament. Here is Daniel 9:27 from the septuagent, compare this to KJV or even the YLT or ASV, the difference is staggering.

Dan 9:27 And one week shall establish the covenant with many: and in the midst of the week my sacrifice and drink-offering shall be taken away: and on the temple shall be the abomination of desolations; and at the end of time an end shall be put to the desolation.

What happened to 'he' will establish a covenant with many? The oldest and most accurate translation is: one week shall establish the covenant with many. The difference is meaning is huge, just staggering. There is no "he' in there. The time period: one week, is what establishes the covenant with many.

Now do you see why I'm all over the place, each time I peel back another layer of deception, I have to re-evaluate.

I think we stay on this idea that there is no peace deal. Babylonian christianity tells you that the event that kicks off the tribulation is a 'peace deal', right? Look at Rev 6, what's the very first thing to leave the earth when the seals are opened? PEACE....

Rev 6:2 And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer. (no peace!)
3 And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see. 4 And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth...(no peace!)

There it is guys, the very first thing to happen when Jesus begins opening seals is war, not peace. Do you see anything that even remotely points to 'peace' or a 'peace deal' there? I don't, neither does Daniel. Read Daniel chapters 8 through 11, you know what you'll see alot of? WAR. Guess what you won't see at all? You guessed it! peace.....

We have been deceived, for a long time, on many different levels. Most of our bibles are full of error, however that does not mean the bible is false, it means you have to DIG, and SEARCH to circumvent the deception. It means you have to draw close to JESUS so He gives you His Spirit. How did Jesus say you would be lead into all truth?

John 16:12 I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. 13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. 14 He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you. 15 All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.

You need the Spirit of truth to find truth.
Jeremiah 29:13... You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.

Time is very short. 2009 looks like its shaping up to be a very very bad year. Even the most optimistic in the world are finding it difficult to find something good to say about next year. I think 2009 is a great candidate year to start the tribulation, when you consider the signs in the heavens of 2014/2015. Since 2008 is almost over, we are going to find out really soon. Be watching, be ready. Pray for the brothers, your family and yourself, that you may be counted worthy of the escape thats coming (Luke 21:36, Rev 3:10). Grace and peace

Deception and the Tribulation

As I reported yesterday and today, Daniel 9:27 clearly says the anti-christ will 'strengthen' (not sign) a covenant with MANY-plural, more than one, etc (not Israel-singular).

The idea that we've been lied to for generations now about how the tribulation will start, leads to another idea that we've been lied to about for generations. There are many who say "when the tribulation starts, we'll know for sure who the anti-christ is"... or..."when the abomination of desolation happens, we'll really know who the anti-christ is."

As I was out on a run this morning, the Lord popped something else into my head. Who is Satan? He is the father of lies right? He is the master of deceit right? Do you think once the tribulation starts he's going to stop lieing, stop deceiving, stop manipulating, stop counterfeiting? If you do, I have a bridge I'd like to sell you...

What does the bible say about the time of the end? It will be a time of UNPARALLELED DECEIT. In other words, nothing will be what it seems to be. Satan has always had counterfeits for the real things of God. Do you think Satan is going to throw in the towel once the tribulation starts and stop producing counterfeits to fool the world?

Here's the point. I just had my eyes opened to the lie about the 'peace pact' with Israel that starts the tribulation-supposedly. Read Daniel 9:27 again, peace is never mentioned, and neither is Israel. Neither are even remotely implied. There's your first deception. Satan has a counterfeit, or a lie, or a deception planned for EVERYTHING he knows is coming during the tribulation period, because unlike many, the devil knows that our God does not lie, and what our Father says will happen, will happen just as its written.

Now here's the real eye opener. People think it will be easy to chart the progress of the tribulation, but they seriously misjudge the extent of deception the bible predicts. The apostles asked Jesus about what was going to happen, what was the first thing Jesus said? BE NOT DECEIVED. And just when you thought that Satan providing a counterfeit for every act of God during the tribulation was enough, the LORD HIMSELF throws in a deception-a big one. The lies and deceit will be piled so high, and be so thick that if it were possible, even the elect would be deceived....

24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect.

2 Thessalonians 2
And then shall be revealed the lawless one, whom the Lord Jesus shall slay with the breath of his mouth, and bring to nought by the manifestation of his coming; 9 even he , whose coming is according to the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 10 and with all deceit of unrighteousness for them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this cause God sendeth them a working of error, that they should believe a lie: 12 that they all might be judged who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

Dan 8:23-YLT-'And in the latter end of their kingdom, about the perfecting of the transgressors, stand up doth a king, fierce of face, and understanding hidden things;
24 and his power hath been mighty, and not by his own power; and wonderful things he destroyeth, and he hath prospered, and wrought, and destroyed mighty ones, and the people of the Holy Ones.
25 'And by his understanding he hath also caused deceit to prosper in his hand, and in his heart he exerteth himself, and by ease he destroyeth many; and against the prince of princes he standeth -- and without hand he is broken.
26 And the appearance of the evening and of the morning, that is told, is true; and thou, hide thou the vision, for it is after many days.'

1 Timothy 4:1 But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times ...
... But the Spirit says clearly that in later times some will be turned away from thefaith, giving their minds to spirits of deceit, and the teachings of evil

Do you still think it will be easy to spot what's going on during the tribulation? Spiritual blindness is real, look around today, how many still don't 'get it?' If you think that lies and deceit are out of control today, just wait until the father of lies takes over. If Satan has already laid a deception to make it hard to spot the beginning of the tribulation, what else has he done?

Think about it, we are in a perpetual state of war now with this 'war on terror.' If another war starts in the middle east, it might be interesting news on the TV, but who will think "hey, the tribulation just started!"

People who still think the 'covenant with MANY' means a covenant with Israel need to explain how the 'new rules' of writing Hebrew and English apply to their bible interpretation. Even if you assume that Israel is part of this covenant, who are the rest of this MANY spoken of in Dan 9:27? Many means more than one, right? Israel is ONE country, NOT many countries.

I don't plan on being here to see all the interesting lies that the anti-christ spins. We are promised an escape from ALL that's about to happen. The people who are left behind need to seriously re-examine everything that churchianity taught them. The lies that the apostate church teaches are like an onion. Peel back one layer and theres another, and another, and another.

Peace deal or not, time is short. Satan has a lie and a counterfeir for everything that our God plans to do during the tribulation. People do not dispute that there will be false christs and false prophets, do you think the devil is going to stop with that?

If there's a way to cover up, misdirect, distort, camoflauge, use trickery, magic, sorcery or anything else to keep people from believing the bible is true, the devil will use it. The escape draws does the tribulation, grace and peace

Happy Thanksgiving

Greetings all, this is my favorite holiday since its not some old pagain holidy that has been 'christianized.' We indeed have much to be thankful for on this day. If you have clothes on your back, a roof over your head, something to eat and the HOLY SPIRIT living within you, have it all!!

Time is indeed short, as I posted yesterday, there will be no peace deal with Israel. Read Daniel 9:27 carefully, the anti-christ stengthens some kind of covenant with MANY, not with one (Israel). This means, the tribulation could start tomorrow. The Restrainer can be taken out of the way in the blink of an eye, war could start immediately after, all within a matter of minutes or hours.

There truly is no time left. The next two events to happen are the escape and WAR, until we see the escape we must be watching and ready for our master to return. It's possible that 2009-2015 could be the 7 year tribulation week. I don't know that for sure, I'm just looking, listening and hearing an inner voice telling me that 'time is short.' I guess we are going to find out how short, short is. You are dearly loved, grace and peace

There Will Not be an Anti-Christ 'Peace Deal' With Israel

This is, this is huge.

We've been lied to...again. The vast majority of churchianity teaches that the anti-christ will sign a peace deal with Israel, and that will be a sign to the world that the tribulation has started, unfortunately that is false.

Yesterday, the Lord told me that I need to re-examine this idea of an anti-christ peace deal with Israel. I can't believe that I did'nt check it out in detail sooner. Just like with most other things in so called christianity, the anti-christ peace deal is a LIE too. I'll get to explaining why in a moment, but for now, think about the implications of this. 99% of so called christianity will be looking for a peace deal with Israel so they'll know who the anti-christ is right? What happens when the peace deal does not show up and the tribulation starts? So called christianity will be thinking that the anti-christ IS NOT the anti-christ because he did'nt sign a peace deal with Israel? So called christianity will think they are not in the tribulation, despite all the signs and clear warnings, because no peace deal was signed. Clever deception huh? This is the work of satanic agents who infiltrated churchianity long ago to plant disinformation and confusion. This is also the result of lazy or willfully negligent christians who fail to check things out for themselves. Your "pastors" (whatever they are) who say they 'lead' you, have been leading you.....leading you astray. Where is their discernment? Where is the Spirit's guidance in their life? Are'nt these men the giant "men of god" who supposedly bask in the wisdom and knowledge of god for you? I guess not..I've been in error for years because I lacked the wisdom to check things our for myself. Times have changed.

Here it is, lets get to the deception that wolves have handed down for generations, passing the same error down from one group of men to another. You need a literal translation of the bible, at a minimum the ASV, if not something like Youngs Literal Translation, or Hebrew Interlinear because there's so much deception...

Where does this idea of a 'peace deal' with Israel come from? Supposedly, this scripture?

Daniel 9:27
And he hath strengthened a covenant with many -- one week, and in the midst of the week he causeth sacrifice and present to cease, and by the wing of abominations he is making desolate, even till the consummation, and that which is determined is poured on the desolate one.'

First: The anti-christ (he) STRENGTHENS a covenant WITH MANY. With many? Yea...with MANY. Israel is a SINGULAR NOUN. MANY is PLURAL, it means MORE THAN ONE. How in the world could someone EVER infer that MANY=ISRAEL. It makes NO SENSE whatsoever.

Second: Do you see ANYTHING about PEACE in there? No, you don't. There's not even a HINT of a peace deal being made, much less with Israel.

What does Daniel 9:27 mean then? What do we know about the anti-christ? HE MAKES WAR MARVELOUSLY. He worships the god of FORTRESSES, NOT the God of peace. "Who can make war with the beast" the bible says...why? He is a GREAT WARRIOR..WAR WAR WAR, get it?

So, the anti-christ makes a COVENANT and he does it (not with Israel) with MANY. What is this covenant, and who are these 'many?'

You use the BIBLE to interpret the BIBLE:

Psalm 83 >>American Standard Version

1 O God, keep not thou silence: Hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God.
2 For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult; And they that hate thee have lifted up the head.
3 Thy take crafty counsel against thy people, And consult together against thy hidden ones.
4 They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; That the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.
5 For they have consulted together with one consent; Against thee do they make a covenant:
6 The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites; Moab, and the Hagarenes;
7 Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre:
8 Assyria also is joined with them; They have helped the children of Lot. Selah
9 Do thou unto them as unto Midian, As to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the river Kishon;
10 Who perished at Endor, Who became as dung for the earth.
11 Make their nobles like Oreb and Zeeb; Yea, all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna;
12 Who said, Let us take to ourselves in possession The habitations of God.
13 O my God, make them like the whirling dust; As stubble before the wind.
14 As the fire that burneth the forest, And as the flame that setteth the mountains on fire,
15 So pursue them with thy tempest, And terrify them with thy storm.
16 Fill their faces with confusion, That they may seek thy name, O Jehovah.
17 Let them be put to shame and dismayed for ever; Yea, let them be confounded and perish;
18 That they may know that thou alone, whose name is Jehovah, Art the Most High over all the earth.

Boom, one stop shopping. What is the COVENANT? It's a covenant to wipe Israel OFF THE MAP and out of remembrance: Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; That the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.

WHO are the MANY that the COVENANT involves? THE ARABS: The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites; Moab, and the Hagarenes; 7 Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre: 8 Assyria also is joined with them; They have helped the children of Lot. Selah

This is BEYOND BIG....The anti-christ will STRENGTHEN (not sign) a WAR COVENANT to destroy Israel. These days, people advertise peace in public, but war is always planned IN SECRET. Do you think this arab war covenant will be advertised by CNN and FAUX news? No way.

Churchainty will be looking for a peace pact, and all they will see is WAR. The tribulation will start and churchianity WON'T EVEN KNOW IT.....Do you know what this means? The tribulation is IMMINENT. The rapture/escape is IMMINENT. No peace deal, WAR will kick off the tribulation. What does Revelation tell us about the sequence of events?

Rev 2-3 Jesus speaks to the churches
Rev 4 RAPTURE, come up here
Rev 6 WAR, death and famine<-------the anti-christ WAR COVENANT AGAINST ISRAEL. We are staring into the mouth of the tribulation, it could start TODAY. I've been saying rapture and WAR are the next things to happen, and they could begin TODAY. Once the Restrainer is removed all hell breaks loose here on earth. The deceptions in the translations of the bible don't stop with Dan 9:27, here's another one of MANY problems: The KJV says this: Daniel 8:25: ...he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many." by peace??? he shall destroy many? That is completely DECEPTIVE Here is the LITERAL translation of that passage: Young's Literal Translation'And by his understanding he hath also caused deceit to prosper in his hand, and in his heart he exerteth himself, and by ease he destroyeth many; and against the prince of princes he standeth -- and without hand he is broken.

That DOES NOT SAY by "peace" he destroys many. It says "by ease he destroyeth many" in other words he EASILY destroys many. Thats a COMPLETELY DIFFERNT MEANING.

You and I have been DECEIVED..let me repeat, NO PEACE DEAL, a WAR COVENANT is what's coming.


War is coming in the middle east. The rapture comes before the war. Rev 3:10, Rev 4, Luke 21:36. The escape is imminent. We are close. As far as I know, the Lord has not given me any prophetic words, all He has done is open my eyes to what has already been written for thousands of years.

I can't believe I had not investigated Dan 9:27 earlier. It did not all come together until about 5am this morning. Remember, the Lord told Daniel to seal up the vision until the time of the end. Well, my eyes did'nt come unglued to the facts listed in this post until this morning. We must be close to the end.

Also I notice that Obama began as an anti-war candidate, but has been staffing up with pro-war hawkish types. Obama is most likely not a US citizen, if he was, we'd have already seen a birth certificate.

The Coming War and Death

In the past days I have written about the coming prosperity. I have also said that I don't think we'll ever see that time of prosperity. What appears to be coming in the near term is war, death and the 'escape,' and not necessarily in that order. What does the bible say about war? Alot, but I'm going to pick:

Daniel 9:26After the sixty-two 'sevens,' the Anointed One will be cut off and will have nothing. The people of the ruler who will come will destroy the city and the sanctuary. The end will come like a flood: War will continue until the end, and desolations have been decreed.

With war comes death, and lots of it. The coming prosperity appears to be coming during after the initial salvo's we see in the book of Revelation. Look at how the book of Revelation starts, in Rev 6, 25% of the earth's population dies from war, famine and the beasts of the earth. Sometime before Rev 6, the escape (Luke 21:36) occurs.

So in Rev 18 we see unbelievable prosperity, but in Rev 6 we see famine, war and death. I guess my point this morning is, there may be a time of prosperity coming, but it comes only after ALOT of war, death and famine. Looking at our situation today, I see famine war and death as very real possibilities in the near term future. If that's true, the escape must be really close.

Luke 21:36 tells us to pray that we may be counted worthy to escape all thats about to happen. All that's about to happen includes 25% of the world being wiped out through war, death and famine.

I'm struggling with this idea of 'the coming prosperity' when what we see just before us is war, death and famine. Is it possible that the world turns prosperous once again during a time of war, death and famine? Oh yea, in fact that's the history of the world. Look at last year (2007), the stock market was hitting new highs while we were in a global 'war on terror' and people were dieing of famine all over Africa, India and Malaysia. The difference between last year and the future is, the casualty figure will be in the BILLIONS not the thousands.

My take on the coming prosperity at the moment is that it will firmly lock the anti-christ into power by counting on people's greed and short sightedness. History is filled with men with charisma who rode to the heights of power on economic distress. We are in the economic distress today, which means "the charasmatic leader" should arise soon. If and when he turns the economy around, that will be a huge plus for his grip on power. Remember, this is a global problem, so the man who brings a global solution will be hailed as a hero. At this time in history I have to believe that this economic hero man will be the anti-christ. If the anti-christ is about to take the world stage, then time is really, really short for the true church on earth.

These things are why we must be watching and ready TODAY. One of my old bosses at work said "there's always opportunity in chaos." How right he was. Be watching. Watch for someone to pop up with a miracle cure to the economy. If my theory is right, that this crises we are in is an artificial crises caused by bankers intentionally witholding credit, then any day now, on cue, they can let the money flow again and make someone a hero. We'll see

The Alarming Lack of Prophets

You would think that with millions of churches, dotting every square mile of developed America, there would be at least ONE prophet, who would come forward and amaze the worldly news media and everyone else with "thus sayeth the Lord." To date, there have been ZERO, none, nada. All we have is false prophets who prophesy lies and illusion year after year after year, and the amazing part is, despite the bibles instructions to shun such men, people keep following them!

Pat Robertson is a great example. He makes numerous prophesies every year and every year THEY ARE ALL WRONG. False prophet. Does that discourage 'his' followers? Not in the least.

Is this world so wicked, and are godly men so few that the Lord won't give one man a word, or some insight into the future? We know He answers prayer, and we know prophesy is still something He wants the church to have so WHERE IS IT?

Joel 2:28 "It will come about after this That I will pour
... "It will come about after this That I will pour out My Spirit on all mankind; Andyour sons and daughters will prophesy, Your old men will ... sons

Acts 2:17 'AND IT SHALL BE IN THE LAST DAYS,' God says,
... Your sons and your daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, andyour old men will dream dreams. ... Your sons and your daughters will prophesy.

Its time to start seeking the face of God again for the things He has promised. Its time for sons and daughters to prophesy. Its time for the few godly men and women who are left to be citizens of a kingdom full of power, not a byword and a joke to the world.

You wanna know what we should see in the church? Here ya go:

1 Cor 12:27 Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular. 28 And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues. 29 Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? are all workers of miracles? 30 Have all the gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret? 31 But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.

Got that? NOT A PASTOR IN SIGHT. FIRST..APOSTLES, SECOND PROPHETS............WHERE ARE THE PROPHETS??????????????????????????????????

I see legions and legions of hired hand pastors of which Paul mentions NOT ONCE when discussing what we should see in the church, and ZERO prophets in todays so called churches......BIG PROBLEM. Huge problem....

Yea, I've seen a person here or there who had the title 'prophet' but the only thing they could 'see' in the future was my money ending up in their wallet....

It takes an outsider to see what those inside cannot or will not see. I have been outside churchianity for years now, and what I see is rot and decay.

It's not as if God is any less powerful than He ever has been. With the increase of wickedness all around us, we need to be re-baptized in ZEAL for the Lord and His kingdom. Seek the Lord on your face. When everybody thinks that someone else is going to do something, NOTHING gets done. WE...that means you, and that means me, need to ask the Lord for the gifts, because He is obviously unwilling to give them to churchianity. I will continue to ask the Lord for the gift of prophesy, He said to "covet earnestly the best gifts" and I intend to do just that. Seek earnestly the best gifts...

grace and peace

The Coming Prosperity

For whatever reason, the Lord has brought to my mind the idea of the coming prosperity. I'm not sure why that's been in my mind over the past week, but it has. The thing to understand about this coming prosperity is that its not going to be like days gone by where prosperity meant living fat, dumb and happy until you die (no offense to anyone in particular there :-), it just means people will have money. Having money certainly does not mean being happy. Look at all the rock stars who have sexed and money'd themselves into a drug overdose for evidence of that.

The Lord is going to give this world what it wants. They love lies and deception, so thats what they are going to spades. They rejected Him in favor of the world, so He will give them the world and not let them enjoy it, in fact, it will kill them. It won't be the first time, consider this:

Psalm 78:16

He brought streams also out of the rock, and caused waters to run down like rivers.
17 And they sinned yet more against him by provoking the most High in the wilderness.
18 And they tempted God in their heart by asking meat for their lust.
19 Yea, they spake against God; they said, Can God furnish a table in the wilderness?
20 Behold, he smote the rock, that the waters gushed out, and the streams overflowed; can he give bread also? can he provide flesh for his people?
21 Therefore the LORD heard this, and was wroth: so a fire was kindled against Jacob, and anger also came up against Israel;
22 Because they believed not in God, and trusted not in his salvation:
23 Though he had commanded the clouds from above, and opened the doors of heaven,
24 And had rained down manna upon them to eat, and had given them of the corn of heaven.
25 Man did eat angels' food: he sent them meat to the full.
26 He caused an east wind to blow in the heaven: and by his power he brought in the south wind.
27 He rained flesh also upon them as dust, and feathered fowls like as the sand of the sea:
28 And he let it fall in the midst of their camp, round about their habitations.
29 So they did eat, and were well filled: for he gave them their own desire;
30 They were not estranged from their lust. But while their meat was yet in their mouths,
31 The wrath of God came upon them, and slew the fattest of them, and smote down the chosen men of Israel.
32 For all this they sinned still, and believed not for his wondrous works.
33 Therefore their days did he consume in vanity, and their years in trouble.
34 When he slew them, then they sought him: and they returned and enquired early after God.

I don't know when exactly this prosperity is coming, I've made a best guess in the chart attached. The Lord has given me zero to work with as far as timing goes. Another question I have is: if we will escape before the 'coming prosperity' why tell me about it? What does it mean? What angle should we take on it?
I will be at the Lord's feet persistently about this, along with further insight into what's to come. grace and peace


Why will so few be saved?

Deuteronomy 4:29 "But from there you will seek the LORD your God,
... But if you look for the LORD your God when you are among those nations, you will find him whenever you search for him with all your heart and with all your soul ...

Proverbs 2:4 If you seek her as silver And search for her
... if you search for wisdom as if it were money and hunt for it as if it were hidden treasure

Matthew 13:44 "The kingdom of heaven is like a treasure hidden in
... "The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field that a man found and hid. ...The kingdom of heaven is like unto a treasure hidden in a field.

You don't 'kinda' search for hidden treasure, either give your all to find it, or you end up empty handed. You have to search for Him with all your heart and all your soul, you know what that means? You have to really want Him. Most people really don't, they kinda want Him. Kinda wanting Jesus is why todays form of churchianity is so popular. People pay a hired hand (pastor) to deal with God, so they can 'get on' with their lives without interference.

If you feel like you've been searching for God and have'nt found him, check yourself. Do you really want Him?

2 Thessalonians 2:7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. 8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: 9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

Yep, you have to really want it. You have to love the truth to have any hope of finding it.
You can't fake God out, He knows you better than you know yourself, he knows half-hearted when He sees it.

Search for Him today, this world will not see good days again until Jesus rules the kingdoms of this world from Jerusalem during the 1,000 year reign.

More Thoughts on 'The Coming Prosperity'

Prosperity will destroy more mens souls than hard times ever will. When men are oppressed, they tend to seek the face of the Lord. When things are going well, they forget him.

This time of economic doom and gloom, is the beginning of the end. This downturn is setting up the next economic boom that will have the stage set perfectly for the anti-christ.

Looking at the time chart I put in yesterdays post, I wonder, what will happen if Obama takes this economic mess we are in today, and has it turned around by 2011? You can see from the Kondratiev cycle, that whoever is president will get credit for that turnaround in the economy. Already Obama is getting the adoration of the Son of God himself, if he 'fixes' the economy, can you imagine how people will feel about him?

This time of economic hardship is a last chance, in my opinion, for people to get right with Jesus. These times are a blessing, not a curse, if they lead men to repentance and salvation.

The economic bottom in 2011 looks like a ripe time for the man of sin, aka the anti-christ, to sign that 'covenant with many' that begins the tribulation. He shall destroy many through peace...

If the tribulation begins in 2011 (I'm speculating here, pure speculation) then we know the rapture occurs sometime between today and 2011. We also know that Israel is due for at least 1 more war, and it looks to be due any day now, its the war prophesied of in Psalm 83, the arab confederation.

Two things set the stage for the coming prosperity: the rapture of the church, and the covenant with many. You and I should pray that we may be counted worthy to escape all thats about to happen (Luke 21:36), that includes the coming satanic prosperity.

The 'escape' could occur at any moment, any day now, perhaps today. Jesus is coming at a time we do not expect him...

The wise thing to do is to be watching and ready in every season, just like the bible tells us. At least one major reason that the Lord does not tell this wicked generation what is to come, is if they knew, they'd use it as a license to sin.

The Laodicean church, the church on the scene at the very end, says of itself: Rev 3:17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing.....that is indicative of prosperity. We were in a period of prosperity, and the rapture/tribulation did not occur. Today, people (even the rich) are not saying of themselves "I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing." What does that mean? There must be another time of prosperity, where the apostate church is saying "I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing."
On the other hand, the philadelphia church, the one that gets to escape, is weak, patient, and holds on to the Word. There's no mention of prosperity with this church, in fact the picture of the philadelphia church is a picture of today, a weak and scattered true church.

This entire financial crisis is being orchestrated from behind the scenes to usher in the new world order. Banks have money to lend, I know this because our taxpayer dollars are being given to the banks by the dump truck full, yet they still wont lend....even with dollars that they can lose with no penalty to them. You know why? By purposefully witholding credit, you can create a crisis and keep people in fear. This entire financial mess has been designed to bring people to their knees. Once people are on their knees, they will beg for a solution, they will beg for 'the good ole days.' That solution will be given, in the form of a man. He is known as the man of perdition, the man of sin, the anti-christ.

In military strategy, its often useful to pound and area with artillery and airstrikes before sending in the tanks and infantry. You want to 'soften' the enemy resistance to your attack. Right now, the world is being pounded by financial artillery and airstrikes so when the new world order tanks and artillery roll in, people will roll over and play dead.

Its amazing watching the end of the world take shape. We must continue to pray, to watch, to be ready.

I've done some speculating, but who knows which stuff the Lord has given me and which He has not. I was up at o'darkhundred again this morning seeking the face of the Lord, that He would give me something to give to you. I have asked the Lord for His words. I could care less about what I have to say, I want to know what He has to say. We have that already in the bible, but a look at how the church is supposed to operate show ALOT of prophesy going on. Prophesy is for the edification of the church. If we ever needed edification, if we ever needed prophets, it would be today.

1 Corinthians 14 : 29 Let the prophets speak two or three, and let the other judge. 30 If any thing be revealed to another that sitteth by, let the first hold his peace. 31 For ye may all prophesy one by one, that all may learn, and all may be comforted

What we are witnessing around us today, is the end of the world...its the end of the world as you know it. Trick is, its happening over time, so its harder to stick you thumb on it. Since 9/11 the water temperature has been increased a degree at a time, slowly but surely. We're getting close to the boiling point, the end of the 'old world' you grew up in, and a 'new world' is on the horizon. Its a satanic world order that we see coming, but it will be short lived.

Prosperity will destroy many many souls. The plan for the coming prosperity is the same one that got Obama elected. Put in a facist (bush) and people will get so sick and tired of him that next time they'll pick a communist (obama). Back and forth we go between the same evils over and over and over again. Same trick different day.

If the tribulation is going to start during the next economic upturn, and we will escape (Luke 21:36) before the tribulation/next economic upswing, that means for true believers all we will see between now and the rapture is doom and gloom. The economy will continue to get worse. Look at the chart I posted yesterday for my best guess at how the economy will pan out.

I guess we are going to find out how all this works out in short order. Time is short, that has'nt changed. Time is short for the world, but it may be shorter for me or you. Nobody guaranteed you that you will live through this day. Get right and stay right with the Son of God, the true Jesus. If the Lord told you what is going to happen, what would you do with that knowledge..think about it.

The Coming Prosperity

Recently the Lord impressed me with the words 'the coming prosperity.' I have been seeking His face about what the future holds, and what has muddled through has to do with prosperity. That's interesting seeing as how there's nothing but doom to see today and the near term future. As I was out on my Saturday morning run, He dropped all kinds of thoughts into my mental inbox, kind of like handing me all kinds of different pieces to a puzzle. Most of the pieces we already know, of course, they all come from the bible. So, although I see the same economic argmageddon you do coming our way, the Lord now has me thinking about the coming prosperity. I've been saying 'time is short' and we are staring into the mouth of the tribulation for some time now, I don't think that has changed.

How strange will it be for the tribulation to be kicked off during a time of prosperity? Jesus will be opening seals that cause judgement and massive death on this world, and the world will be economically prospering? That's the picture thats shaping up in my head. Here's something I pieced together, I'm sure there will be tweaks to it, but there are interesting things here to think about...

Remember, I am not predicting anything, this is one way of many ways things could pan out, you decide for yourself what to believe :-)

The Anti-Christ and The Coming Prosperity

This past week I posted about spending time with the Lord in the morning and having something 'percolate' through to me about prosperity. The next day I think, nah, what prosperity? Once again, the Lord has my attention on prosperity, the coming prosperity. Yea, we know that today things don't look good. We also know that for the forseeable short term future things don't look good, however....

The Lord has me thinking about 'prosperity' so I'm going to go with it.

As a side note: I could care less about being 'right' or 'wrong' personally, in fact, I don't want 'me' in the equation at all, I want to know what God thinks. He is all that matters, so when I'm all over the place with my thoughts, bear with me. Trying to crack the what the future holds takes alot of thought, constant prayer, a healthy dose of correction by the Spirit of God and persistance. The Lord has not given me any, zero prophetic words yet, but He gives me many course corrections to my thinking each and every day. These I share with you on this blog.

Back to the prosperity thing. Here are some of the thoughts the Lord put in my head as I was in my Saturday morning run, one after the other, like dropping puzzle pieces into my mind:

Framework of the future

the coming prosperity

peace and safety

he will destroy many through peace

the truth sometimes stranger than fiction, incredible prosperity during a time of incredible divine judgement

peace, safety, prosperity then sudden destruction.

Looks to me like the tribulation starts sometime around either stable economic conditions or somewhat prosperous ones. The antichrist confirms a covenant with many for one week, this is also said about him Daniel 8:25 ... And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many

peace, prosperity, tribulation .....weird

I'm still thinking about what this all means. How long will it take to transition from the downturn we are in now, to prosperity once again? The answer to that tells us (in my opinion) when we can expect to see the tribulation.

The groundwork is being laid right now for the coming prosperity. The 'old' way is in death spasms, the new way of doing things is coming. This new way, will bring prosperity and the devil and judgement. Its hard to wrap the mind around a world that living in prosperity with the judgements of God raining down all around its head, but thats the way the future looks at the moment. The most dangerous time for men, is when things are going well, not when things are going poorly. People tend to turn to God when they are hard pressed, when things are going well, they turn their back on the Most High.

I think the Spirit spoke to me today about the coming prosperity, thats twice in one week. Because I did'nt 'get it' the first time, He told me again. I got it now. More to follow later..

Obamas Gods of War

The two things that loom largest in the world's future are war and the escape. It appears that Mr Obama is not the peace loving, withdraw from the war zones guy he advertised to the world during his initial days campaigning for president. He has assembled a war cabinet that would make Dick Cheney green with envy. We knew that John McBush was going to drag us into never ending war, now we also know that Obama will as well.

If any of these war plans that Obama is drawing up involve Israel, then we are really in for a ride. Study your history, Israel finishes its wars quickly. We could wake up one morning, be at war, and the whole world could look different one week later. War has a transformative effect. We know that this world is transforming already, and war is a catalyst that speeds that process up. We've been at war for the past 7 years, now we can look forward to more war. War spending also props up the economy. Without all the war spending we would already be in a depression, perhaps we would be just recovering from one that should have started around the time of 9/11. Since the powers that be decided to band aid the wounds of our country instead of fix them, the price we will have to pay in the end will be much higher, and it will take much longer to see any kind of prosperity again.

Anything is possible with our God, but without His intervention in this world we are on the fast track into the mouth of the tribulation. America's government cannot keep printing money out of thin air forever. A time of reckoning is coming. Economic hard times produce hitlers and lenins, what will this economic downturn produce?

The Lord tells us to watch and pray that we may be counted worthy to escape all thats about to happen, I intend to do just that. Time is short.

This is Not Global Economic Collapse?

I was reading someone's article recently and the point he makes is that we are not facing global economic collapse. I find that interesting. How does he know this is not the beginning of total economic meltdown? He says that there has to be an economic system during the tribulation so we could not be in 'meltdown' mode right now....I beg to differ.

If nothing else were to happen in the future, and we just took a snapshot of today and compared it to 1 year ago, we have already had a global economic meltdown, and its not even close to being finished. Listen to world leaders, they are calling for a new world order. To have a 'new' world order, the 'old' world order has to die. Every economic indicator you could name today is screaming the death of the 'old' world order.

To those people who say, "there have been economic problems in the past and this is no different", I say "you're blind." What we are facing today is so different from anything ever seen before I don't even know where to start. If you want a starting place for what makes today different, then look to the apostasy of the church. If thats not enough, then look up the term 'financial derivatives" and tell me the last crisis that we were in over our neck in trouble with them? When was the last crisis involving credit default swaps? Most people don't even know what those are, much less take them into account when coming to a conclusion of where we are from an economic standpoint.

There is every possibility that the birthpangs the world is going through right now are the birthpangs bringing forth the tribulation period. For anyone to say definitively that they are not is shortsighted at best, and a fool at worst. The Lord could tarry, but every sign, and every indicator that our eyes can see, our ears can hear, and our spirit can discern, tell us we are sitting directly in front of the tribulation period, just waiting for the Lord to start it.

A pot of water looks about the same while its heating from room temperature to boiling. Once the temperature reaches boiling, in a very short time, the pot boils over. If you can't feel the pot getting ready to boil over, I wonder who you are and where you live. A soldier in a combat zone does not need to be told to get down when he hears a shot or an incoming artillery round, they just do it. This world today resembles an artillery free fire zone where nobody bothers to duck. "Don't worry" so called christian leaders tell you, the noise is really loud, but artillery rounds won't hurt you......yea, ok.

Seems to me, that whether we have years left, or days, we should be living as each day is our last. This world is at the boiling point, when the water starts to boil over, there will be no warning, it will happen, and it will happen quickly with no warning. I advise you to be on guard, we watching, be ready, that's what the bible told us to do, that's what I plan to do. grace and peace

His Servants and His Goods

Here, the Lord gives his servants his goods to go out and be profitable:

Matt 25:14 For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods. 15 And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey. 16 Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same, and made them other five talents. 17 And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two. 18 But he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and hid his lord's money.

24 Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed: 25 And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine.
26 His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed: 27 Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury. 28 Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents.
29 For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath. 30 And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

What occurred to me this morning:

The unprofitable servant said "I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth"

Rev 3:10 tells us that the church that will escape the tribulation will be a weak church. Even though we will be weak, we can still do something. The problem with the unprofitable servant is he hid the 'talent' in the earth. If it's in the earth, you can do nothing with it, not even a little. I'm convinced that 'a little' can be turned into alot over time. A little bit of erosion, over a long time is what formed the grand canyon. A little bit of saving, over many years can add up to a fortune. A little bit of time investment, every day, can lead to significant knowledge in a given area of study. A little, done over a long time, ADDS UP.

The parable of the talents in Matt 25 shows me that Jesus expects something......anything more than nothing. So you're weak, do the little you can in your weak state. The Lord never asks you for what you can't do, he asks you to do the little you CAN do. Put out, do, act, little things add up to big things. Little things, ADD UP. Buried, you can do nothing with your talents. What has the Lord given you? Do the little you can with it today, and do it again tomorrow. The secret to living is giving. What can you give to someone else today (besides money)? We live in a world full of hurting people, do you have any idea how much one kind word might mean to someone else today? We just don't know. Be full of the Spirit and ready for service, kind of like a firefighter. They have to be ready when they are called. We have to be ready when the Spirit tells us to act, you never know when thats going to be. The sons of God are led by the SPIRIT OF GOD, not by men. When the Spirit says to jump you need to be ready to jump.

Do the little things you can do today. What seems small and insignificant today can be huge tomorrow. Plant, sow actions, who knows what will be successful? How do we know what the Lord will cause to grow? The Lord knows how to conduct the orchestra, you just need to play your part. I don't know what that is, you do.

Don't bury your talent, whatever, and however small it is. Small to you might mean everything to someone else, who knows? Do the little things you can do today. People think about doing grand things for God in some far away land and forget about the people around them everyday. People want to change the world but refuse to change themselves. "Change you can count on" starts with you and me.

Time is short, the escape approaches quickly. Pray that you will be counted worthy of it. Remain in Him, be obedient, be faithful, love with all your heart. Soon..very soon, these things will be the only things that matter, everything else is a pipedream. Remember the little things.

Timing the Tribulation

Yesterday I wrote that the tribulation could be years away. I even gave some reasons why that could be the case. This morning I believe I was corrected on some of the reasons I gave.

1. Read this again:

They 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. 28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; 29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. 30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.

There is nothing in those words that give us any reason to believe those are 'prosperous' days. I asked the Lord, ok then, how about 'normal' days? Nope. What nails the description of the days above is pre-tribulation days. Yes, eating and drinking are normal activities, however people do those things even in abnormal days, so 'normal' does'nt fit. Prosperous does'nt fit, because people eat and drink to some extent even when they are poor, they get married when they are poor, so that's not it.

Take a look at the days we are living in. They are anything but normal. For most, they are not prosperous either. If these days are not normal, and they are not prosperous, what are they? These are pre-tribulation days, days exactly like the day when Jesus will be revealed to us. The day Jesus will be revealed could be ready be watching

2. The beginning of the tribulation, the anti-christ has to enter into some kind of peace deal with Israel, how far in the future could that be? Not far. War could break out in this world any day now, after wars, peace accords are reached. When Israel goes to war, the wars don't last very long, so once again, we are back to 'any day now.'

3. Looking at the trend line for the economy and what still lies ahead of us, we cannot go another year, much less two years without some kind of divine intervention. It is here that one could argue we might have to wait. The Lord could tarry, he could pump enough life into this dying world to prop it up awhile longer, question is, will He?

Based on what I see around me, I have to believe that the rapture and tribulation are imminent, not years away. Years away, as I wrote yesterday, is a possibility, but only if God intervenes in a miraculous way. I think that He has allowed events to come this far for a reason. We have never seen a time like this. We have seen economic cycles like this, but we have not seen economic downturns like this combined with the apostasy of the church, combined with calls for a new world order, combined with the nation of Israel sitting over there in the middle east (Israel was not a nation in the middle east during the last great depression, remember?...prophesy fulfilled). Putting everything together makes a very compelling case for the world turning over on its head very very soon.

The tribulation sits directly in front of us, and we are running, not walking into its mouth. The speed of events these days is unlike any other time in history. One day like 9/11 changes things forever. What will the rapture of the church do to this world? How much fear and chaos do you think that event will cause? One day, in the blink of an eye this world will plunge into darkness. We are'nt talking years here, we're talking the blink of an eye, any day now.

The Spirit says to me, and has been saying to me, time is short. I cannot shake it away, I cannot reason it away, I cannot make a case that sticks against it. Time is short. These days are not like the days of our fathers, these are our days, these days are end of the world days. Very exciting stuff, not because of the bad things that will happen to the world, but because we will see Jesus in all His glory....soon.

I tried to make a case yesterday for why we might have awhile to wait, but this morning, I don't believe it. Perhaps we do have awhile to wait, but that's not the attitude we should take. Watching happens right now, today. Readiness happens right now, today. Not next year or the year after that. I cannot shake the sense of immediacy. Look around at the world, its falling apart. The pre-tribulation world that we see described in Luke 17 and Matt 24 is fading fast, that can only mean one thing...the escape will be soon.

Another Possibility

I spent some time with the Lord this morning at O'darkhundred asking Him where we are on the world's timeline and how much longer we have till the end. The following is what has percolated into my mind since earlier this morning.

We may have a little longer to wait. Here are the things that come together to fit this outcome:

1. The Lord is longsuffering not wanting any to perish
2. Israel living in safety/great wealth
3. Long Wave Economics
4. Days of Noah, Days of Lot, buying selling, marrying giving in marriage

1. The Lord is a gracious and merciful God not wanting any to perish. As I look back on my own life I see how many years He was patient with me while I was a complete heathen. His long suffering may mean salvation for many. That would mean more waiting for the rapture and tribulation.

2. Reading Ezekiel 38/39 we see Israel as a rich nation living in safety just before the Gog Magog invasion. Remember, people are saying 'peace and safety' just before the hammer falls. Israel today is nowhere close to looking peaceful and safe, that means more waiting if the rapture is going to occur just before the tribulation.

3. I've been studying long wave economics. This way of looking at economics tells us that everything in the world operates in cycles. This theory is rejected by most mainstream economists today. These same economists who reject long wave economics also did'nt see the current economic mess coming, long wave economics did. Not to mention, what does the bible say about how this world works? Ecc 1:9 The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.
10 Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us. That's called a repeating cycle....nothing new under the sun.

The longwave economic model I've been studying was developed by a Russian named Nikolai Kondratiev (1892-1938). He was killed by Stalin for daring to look for the truth (sound familiar?) The projected path for the economy according to the long wave economic model I've been studying shows the economy going up and down (like it has been) between now and March/April 2009, then around spring 2009 doing a nosedive until just before summer of 2011. This model has been pretty accurate so far, we'll see how it does over the next 2 years or so. If this model is correct, we have'nt seen bad yet, but its coming. This model also tells us, theres no prosperity or anything close to it for the world until summer of 2011. We'll see.

4. Closely tied to the condition in Israel during its safe and prosperous days are the places in the bible where we see Jesus coming back during normal, seemingly prosperous days:

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. 27 They 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. 28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; 29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. 30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.

If Israel is living in wealth/prosperity and safety, my guess is, America will be too. If America is, the rest of the world will follow. Its the problems here in America that have spread to the rest of the world like a virus, I imagine that the opposite will be true as well.

What does all this add up to? We may have more time to wait if Jesus is going to come back for us during a time of prosperity and peace. I've told you before, as far as I know, I'm not a prophet, just a watchman. The tribulation world is forming right before our very eyes. It does appear that we are fast tracking right into its mouth. The Lord however, can string this thing out as long as He wants to in order to bring in the full number of believers to the true church before He turns His full attention back to Israel. Time is short, we may not live through today, who knows?

Another small note about what the future looks like according to the economic model is, Dec 21, 2012, that date that people have been mentioning as the end of something, looks like a time of economic upswing. Economic good times are probably the most dangerous for men. I can also say this, today is not a day to stop watching, or let your readiness slip one iota. The escape could happen today. We have already seen how fast things can change in this world. What would happen if the escape happened today? What would happen if Israel went to war in the middle east today? The world as we know it would be gone. The world we live in today is nothing like it was even a couple years ago. The only thing we can look for as a constant is constant change. Now is a time to draw close to the Creator. He is not frightened by whats coming on the world. Hide in the shadow of his wings (Psalm 91).

I'm done for today, grace and peace

Stop Pretending

I was reading some remarks that came out of an economics conference recently, where it was said by one economist "stop pretending you understand what's happening in the world today (economically), because nobody understands it."

In one way, I guess he's right, but in another way he's wrong. We can understand what's going on around us. We are hearing "new world order" over and over again these days to the point where I suspect this economic malaise we are in was planned. Looks to me like the agents of the enemy have 'pulled the trigger' to begin the process of implementing their master's government. The dream men have had for controlling the world is an old one. It started with the tower of Babel, and ever since men have been working to make the dream a reality. Babel, Babylon, its all about one world control. The problem these men and their master have had is our Father's Restrainer. Our God has a time in mind for when he will allow events to move forward.

Judging by where we sit today, we have gone beyond the point of no return. To turn around the trainwreck that is happening before our eyes would take a miracle. It would take divine intervention and so far, we do not see an intervention. At a minimum it will take a couple of years to hit bottom, then gradually work our way out of the economic mess we are in today. Here's something else we know about what's going on today, we are on the fast track to the tribulation. We are to be watching, right? Well, when Obama was elected president, that was an indicator that we are on the fast track to the tribulation. When our government decided to pump money into the banks instead of allowing them to 'take their medicine' it is an indicator that we are fast tracking into the tribulation.

At any point along the way, the Lord could have caused men to act in a way that would slow down the train wreck, instead we see the throttle being edged forward each and every day. We are speeding up, not slowing down toward some calamitous end, that end is the tribulation.

One thing, that could change the landscape of our world fairly quickly would be war. As we have seen with Israel in the past, their wars start and end quickly. No other nation on earth gets angels with their infantry brigades. All appearances are, that we are headed for war. War 'fixes' many problems, and it transforms the landscape. War has always been the answer for economies gone sour, so when you have a global economic problem, the answer is a global war.

There are many prophesies in the bible that are yet unfullfilled, many of them involve war. Read the beginning of wrath in Rev 6, it involves widespread death and destruction through war, famine etc. If there is going to be any return to prosperity, either it will be years away or its going to take war to achieve it. From what the Lord has allowed to happen so far, it appears we are headed, without restraint, for war.

Bad times produce people like Hitler and Lenin, but they also turn some people's hearts back to their maker. The tough times this world is going through should be a wake up call, a time to turn back to the Creator, a time of repentance. Tough times can be a blessing or a curse, all depends on how you react to it. Will men use this time to return to the true God or will they remain in idolatry (pastoral system)? There is one mediator between God and man, and it is not your pastor.

The weak church is another indicator of where we sit on the end time timeline. There is no 'end time revival' in the bible.

1 Timothy 4:1 .. But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons

Matthew 24:10 ... Then many people will fall away, will betray one another, and will hate one another.

Fall away from what? You know what. How many will fall away? Many...

What will people pay attention to in these days...our days? Deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons. I always find it amazing that people will admit that we are living in the last days, and yet ignore all the teachings about what we should see during the last days.

If we are in the last days, what does the bible tell us we should see? Deceit, doctrines of demons, rude abusive self involved people who are lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God, apostasy, not revival, and a falling away from the faith. Look around you, can't you see it. Those words are an exact portrait of our days. This world is ready for the anti-christ because most people are just like him. Most people want to play church rather than BE the church. We know a tree by the fruit it bears. When other men, social circles, wealth health and all the other things that lead to vanity take priority over a simple faith in Jesus Christ, we know the days we live in, and the shortness of time.

There is an escape from all thats about to happen, and that escape belongs to a weak church (Rev 3 & Luke 21:36). There is also a church that thinks it has no problems, it thinks it has its act together and yet Jesus has nothing but bad things to say about it, that is the Laodicean church. If the Lord spues you from his mouth, do you really think you are still saved?

Rev 3:15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. 16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth

Wake up. Every indication is, we are headed into the tribulation at breakneck speed. Nobody knows what will happen today or tomorrow, but we know how this story ends. We also know what we should be doing, so we best be found doing them when our master shows up.

Grace and peace

Time to the End

Although we do not know exactly where we are on the end time timeline, we do know we are in the end times. As I have said before, the apostasy of the church is a huge marker telling you that we are close to the end. This morning I get up and read this:

Shake-up ahead in world financial structure
a wrenching process that British Prime Minister Gordon Brown has dubbed "the birth pangs of this new global order."

The idea of a one world order has gone from conspiracy theory in the past to something spoken openly and frequently by world leaders today. It was economic problems that produced a Hitler. It was economic problems that produced a Lenin, what will todays economic problems produce? Mr Brown of England seems to think it will birth a new (satanic) world order. I think he's right.

The world we live in today is unlike any other period in our history. The new world order talked about by todays world leaders is the system that will force everyone to take the mark of the beast, no doubt about it. The talk of this new world order has put the end of the world, and the tribulatin period squarely in our sights. We don't have to wonder if its coming anymore, its here. This new world order that they talk about is the last manmade government before Jesus comes back to take things over.

If the tribulation is right before us and moving closer by the day, then the rapture of the true church is even closer. Luke 21:36 tells us to pray that we may be counted worthy of this escape, so I pray for you, for my family and myself. Time is short, grace and peace

In your patience possess ye your souls

Luke 21: 19 In your patience possess ye your souls.

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.

And there's the challenge for us. How many of us are really good at patience? Well, we need to get good at it, because in our patience possess us our souls, or something like that. We are to watch and pray always, as if Jesus could come back today, but we must also be patient. Tom Petty sang a song that goes something like "the waiting is the hardest part." We might not have long to wait at all, then again we might have to really engage our patience.

I say all the time, "time is short" and I believe that is true. I believe that statement even though I do not fully understand what it means. When you have the Spirit of God living inside of you, and to Him, a day is like a thousand years and a thousand years are like a day, things can get a little foggy. What is not so foggy is the constant loudspeaker within me, telling me that 'time is short.' I think it is wise to treat each day as if it might be your last. It might be. Who guaranteed you that you will live to see tomorrow? Thousands of people will die today, and tomorrow and the next day, for each of them, time is indeed short.

Add to that, the times we live in. The world is steadily, and not so slowly moving, tilting, rotating around onto its head in every way imaginable. One of the most notable ways this is happening is the switch from what is evil being called good, and what is good being called evil. We also see the way of truth pushed aside for the way of apostasy. Indeed, these days are unlike any other we have ever seen. The men in high places in this world who serve the devil, are pushing and pulling every lever at their disposal to usher in their 'new world order.' Every day now, at least some world leader mentions it. This crisis (they say) will lead to a new world order. That world order is a satanic world order, and the chess pieces are in play once again to bring it from the background to the forefront.

These men who serve satan can push and pull for their world order all they want, but its our God who decides when the Restrainer is taken out of the way. We serve a God who always has been, and always will be in control and master of all things. He decides, not men, when things will proceed. Our master tells us what to do, and we do it. He tells us to 'be watching' and 'be ready' so we do, and we are. The Spirit within us tells us what we need to know today, many times thats all He gives us, our daily bread, but isn't that enough? Men are so weak and lack so much understanding that if they were given more than their daily bread, they'd screw something up, so they are given just enough for today.

Be of good cheer, be strong, watch, pray, be ready. I really am not sure how much time is left. Things can happen so fast. The two major events that stand on the horizon, (as far as I can percieve) are 1. rapture and 2. war. There may be some war before rapture or rapture before war, that I'm kinda fuzzy on. I don't need to know.

We live in an amazing time, interesting times. You and I could be living through the end of the world. Judging by the state of the church (major apostasy), looks to me like the church age is about to be over, and our Father's complete focus on Israel is about to begin again. We'll find out soon enough.

One Church Gets to Escape

Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write
And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write
And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write
And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write
And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write
And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write
And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write

The first interesting thing I see from these words (from Rev2-3) is they are written to the angels of the churches. That makes sense right, since angels are messengers, but I also think it imlplies those angels of the churches that are messing up might be in some trouble as well as the churches themselves. That's just speculation and has little to do that I can think of with you and me, just an observation.

What I really wanted to point out, is that of the churches listed in Rev, only one is promised this:

Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.

One church is promised to be kept from the tribulation, or "the hour of temptation" that will come on all the earth. As we approach the tribulation hour, this becomes increasingly important information because it tell us what the true church will look like just before "being kept from the hour of temptation." What are the characteristics of this church?

1. for thou hast a little strength,
2. and hast kept my word,
3. and hast not denied my name
4. ...hast kept the word of my patience

Its a weak and patient church that has kept his word, and has not denied his name. Notice, this church is not condemned for anything, Jesus has nothing bad to say about it. Compare that to say, the Laodicean church that follows it. Jesus has only bad things to say about it, nothing good. It's a 180 degree spin around. So, lets piece this together...

If, as many people agree, the tribulation is standing right in front of us with its jaws wide open, then the true church that is in the world today is weak, patient, is keeping his word, and is not denying his name. Anything calling itself christianity that does not look like this, is a fraud.

Another thing to point out, there is one other church in Rev 2-3, that Jesus does not say anything bad about, thats here:

And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive;
9 I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan. 10 Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life. 11 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.

Here's something to notice about the two churches that Jesus does not have anything bad to say about:

them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan. <----that is mentioned in both of them. They call themselves jews but are really a synagogue of Satan.

Todays so called churchianity fawns all over anything that calls itself jewish, and yet Jesus specifically points out some kind of link between the churches that he approves of, and so called jews who really serve Satan. How many in churchianity today have you heard EVER talking about the 'synagogue of Satan?' None, right? Well, why is that? If we are in the time just before the tribulation, we should see a weak church and jews that are jews in name only but are really servants of Satan, why are'nt these so called jews being called what they really are? They are a synagogue of Satan.

I'll tell you why you don't hear about them, because what calls itself christianity today is just as apostate, just as much a servant of Satan as the 'synagogue of Satan.' Why would one bad mouth the other? They are two peas in a pod, just like true jews, and true christians are different branches in the same vine (John 15).

A weak church, that is attacked on every side by Satanic jews (synagogue of Satan) is what we should see just before the tribulation. Read Rev 2-3 for yourself.

One last point I'll make about this end times church (philadelphia). The Lord appears to be so upset with these so called jews (synagogue of Satan) that the Lord forces those jews down on their knees and forces the jews to worship at the churches feet, and to acknowledge that Jesus loves them. Picture that in your mind. So much for pandering to so called jews today huh? I see it everywhere, as if jews today were right with God? Jesus calls them a synagogue of Satan.

There is a time coming where our Father will turn his full attention back to the Jews, and a remnant of them will have hearts for our God again. The true jew is our brother, the synagogue of satan is kin to the apostate church today.

Could you imagine if someone got up in a church today and said the apostate jews today will worship before the churches feet......Oh..the uproar, HOW CAN YOU SAY THAT? I did'nt, Jesus did, read your bible.

I say all this to focus your mind on what the bible says about what we should see in the world today. Everything in todays world is spin and deception, only what is written in your bible will clear the fog. The things written in this post do not make a person popular, they make them hated. The truth never made anyone popular. The prophets of the past and the prince of peace himself were put to death for telling the truth to this world.

Open your bible and figure out what the truth is for yourself. grace and peace

Change is Coming Alright

Baron David de Rothschild sees a New World Order in global banking governance

We provide advice on both sides of the balance sheet, and we do it globally. There is no debate that Rothschild is a Jewish family, but we are proud to be in this region. However, it takes time to develop a global footprint.“
Banks will deleverage and there will be a new form of global governance.

Its an old plan, stalin tried it, hitler tried it, bush tried it...take over the world. Rejecting Jesus Christ comes with a price. Evil men have been trying to unite and take over the world since the tower of babel. The Lord has thrown monkey wrenches in their machinery time after time. We are teetering on the edge of perhaps the one attempt to take over the world that will succeed because this time, perhaps the restrainer is removed. The Restrainer is what stands in the way of satans world domination. It appears, that this latest attempt to take over the world is well advanced in its life cycle. The Restrainer can stop its advance at any point along the way, question is, will He? If he does not, then we will be entering the tribulation period in a relatively short period of time. There is a war or two that needs to take place before the tribulation starts, but as we have seen from Israel's history at war, those could start and finish in a matter of DAYS, not weeks or years. Our bibles tell us that the wars that are coming will be decided by the Lord, not human armies.

The apostasy of the church has reached maturity. The faithful on earth are only a remnant, a few. How much time is left before the escape? I don't know, but I suspect that time is very short. If the true church was strong and united I would have a different opinion, but the true church is weak and scattered. Where does that put us on God's timeline? How about here:

Rev 3:7 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth;
8 I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. 9 Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. 10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. 11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. 12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name. 13 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

grace and peace

Revolution, Riots, Depression Etc

That's whats coming. I've been saying 'we ain't seen bad yet,' watch this:

Revolution, riots, rebellion, marches, depression, GREATER than the great depression, that's what this guy, who has been more right than wrong in the past says is coming.

There's a price for rejecting the truth. There's a price for kicking the true Jesus out, and installing false christs instead. There's a price, and the people of this world are about to find out how grievous and sick and painful it is to reject the living God. Read your bibles, look at what happened to the Jews in the old testament when they fell into sin and apostasy over and over again, they paid a price.

So called christianity would have you believe that you can make a 20 second 'decision for Jesus' then live the rest of your life however you want. They preach blessing blessing blessing instead of repentance repentance repentance.

Another point Mr Celente makes is that christmas is going to be less about shopping and more about putting food on the table and holiness, and 'what a surprise' he says to actually put God back into something that was supposed to be about him to begin with. This is an example, of good things coming out of bad. If even 1 more person makes it into heaven out of these horrid times we live in, then it was worth it. When things get bad, more people turn to the Creator, that's a good thing.

"Americans are going to be taking a hit like they've never seen before" that's a quote from the video. Bury your head if you want to, this thing is coming whether the world is ready for it or not.

The host of this clip asks "what do we have to do today to prevent CHAOS tomorrow?" Chaos....exactly, thats whats coming. We have a book that tells us EXACTLY how this story ends. We know what's coming, the question has always been, how close are we to this end time script 'going live.' A look around at the scenery tells me, we have to be close. These days are unlike any in history. The hallmark of the end times that tells us we are at the end is APOSTASY. Yep, the name of this blog tells us where we are. There has never been the apostasy of the church like we have it today. Jesus has zero, nada, nothing good to say about the laodicean church, what does the church look like today? Laodicea. Lukewarm, no power, no prophets, no love. Comparing the church we see in the bible to what calls itself the church today shows us stark contrasts. There are no 'one man show' pastors in the bible. The bible shows us the church as a family, not a business. There is a CEO, his name is JESUS, not your pastor.

What calls itself the church is rotten from the foundations up, everything about it is wrong. As I've shown many times, the fact that the Holy Spirit still works within churchianity gives churchianity a false sense of security. What does Matt 7:21 say about people who did all kinds of things in Jesus name, but Jesus did not know them? The Holy Spirit is at work everywhere, all the time, He does'nt take time off. Why will so few people make it into the kingdom of heaven Matt 7:14...WHY?

There's a price to pay for rejecting the true Son of God and his Father who is forever praised. Men do not love the truth, and for this reason, God will send them a GREAT DELUSION that they may believe a lie. It did'nt have to be this way. For many people, its not too late to get right and stay right with Jesus, but time is running out. What will it take to get people's attention? Riots? revolution? chaos? death? fear? destruction? Well that's whats coming so we'll see what it takes...soon.

There is an escape for a few who are found worthy of it. Read Matt 25 and the parable of the virgins. Read Luke 21:36, it tells you about an escape from ALL thats about to happen. We are to pray to be counted worthy of it. I pray for you if you are 'in Christ' along with my family and myself, that we may be counted worthy of that escape. Please keep me and my family in your prayers as well.

The least of the servants of Jesus Christ salutes you, grace and peace
