THE BOOK OF REVELATION AND CURRENT EVENTS PART 2

In my blog from yesterday I wanted to point out some other interesting news that I discovered.  An especially important historical point in future history will be the rebuilding of the Jewish temple.  Up until recently it had been understood that this would have to be built on the temple mount where the Dome of the Rock now exists.  Information that I just found from a year ago reveals that this may not be the case as you can read here from an article in Israel Today. 
 
There is also another archeological article that supports this as you can read here.  I am including an article from Prophecy Today here, that supports the importance of this historical event.   I believe If the 3rd temple were to be built where the current Dome and the Al -Aqsa mosque reside currently; this would have to be an act of God.   Another location would make it much more feasible in the short term.  Either way it will be built, and I believe very soon.

I mentioned in my previous blog, that following the “conquest” the next seal would be war or conflict.  People killing one another sounds like civil war to me.  Could it be that during this time of conflict or strife, the War of Gog and Magog occurs?  Could the temple mount suffer from devastation from this war?  There is another article from Prophecy Today this appears to support my timing of events.  You can read it here.  In my heart a belief that the Rapture will occur either during this war or right after it.  These days current events seem to happen so quickly that we are taken a bit by surprise.  Knowing what we know now though helps us to prepare spiritually as well as emotionally. 

Are you prepared spiritually?  That is what is important as the rest will fall into place as God is in perfect control of everything even when it appears out of control.  Are you fearful of what is to come, anxious, in doubt, conflicted?  Jesus has the answers.

Please pray this Prayer:

“Father, I know that I have broken your laws and my sins have separated me from you. I am truly sorry, and now I want to turn away from my past sinful life toward you. Please forgive me and help me avoid sinning again. I believe that your son, Jesus Christ died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus to become the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward. Please send your Holy Spirit to help me obey You, and to do Your will for the rest of my life. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”  This was taken from the following site: Sinners Prayer.  Kingjamesbibleverse.com

 



THE BOOK OF REVELATION AND CURRENT EVENTS

It has been my intent from the inception of this ministry to relate current events to scripture, and specifically the book of Revelation.  I am not a prophet, nor am I a pastor, yet I have many years studying the scriptures.  What I am about to say in this blog is my opinion based on current events and previous study.  I may be wrong in my assessment which is why I encourage readers to comment so we can all benefit from the discussion.

NKJV Revelation 6

Now I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals; and I heard one of the four living creatures saying with a voice like thunder, “Come and see.” And I looked, and behold, a white horse. He who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer.

In my opinion, our current events are in the historical time of verse 2.  This individual is not Jesus, please compare to Revelation 19:11.  This verse symbolizes something or someone that needs to be conquered by the conqueror.  When we read further in Revelation it talks about the coming Anti-Christ a one world leader that rules the world.  I believe that the conqueror in Revelation 6 is preparing the way for this Anti-Christ.  Look what is happening in our nation with the destruction of our civil rights bit by bit.  There has been talk of a “Great Reset” which is a global Leftist agenda to fundamentally change society and to eradicate capitalism by 2030.  You will not own a car, house, clothes.  Why?  Because you will be owned by the state and you will be their ward.  You will do what your told and obey.  All of this made possible by the con job of Covid-19.  It is in their own words here: World Economic Forum.

If what I am saying is true and I have this right, then this will be next.

When He opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying, “Come and see.” Another horse, fiery red, went out. And it was granted to the one who sat on it to take peace from the earth, and that people should kill one another; and there was given to him a great sword.

God help us, I hope I am wrong. 

If you are an unbeliever, please consider what I am saying.  We are getting so close in the end times of the Church age; the Rapture will happen very soon.  You do not want to be left behind!  The time during the Tribulation will be increasingly terrible.  People may ask; Why, would God bring so many terrible judgements on the earth.  Believe me he takes no pleasure in watching people suffer.  The problem is the stubbornness of people not wanting to repent of their sin and pride.  It is not God’s fault that some people need to be taken to the proverbial woodshed to get them to repent.  The increasing judgments during the Tribulation are a mark of shame on those that took so long to repent and not a reflection on God.

If you are fearful of what is to come and want peace that only God can give then please pray the sinner’s prayer.  You will secure you eternity with a God who loves you.

“Father, I know that I have broken your laws and my sins have separated me from you. I am truly sorry, and now I want to turn away from my past sinful life toward you. Please forgive me and help me avoid sinning again. I believe that your son, Jesus Christ died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus to become the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward. Please send your Holy Spirit to help me obey You, and to do Your will for the rest of my life. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”  This was taken from the following site: Sinners Prayer.  Kingjamesbibleverse.com



The Essential and Silent Church

After the coronavirus came to America the government decided that certain businesses, and jobs were essential and going to church was not.  The government’s determination of who and what was essential was clearly biased and politically motivated.  Why do I say that? Because they went way beyond what was necessary for public safety, especially after we found out the truth about how bad the virus really was.  When the governing authorities made determinations on who and what was essential, they assigned value or the lack thereof on certain persons or groups.  The government has no right to determine who and what is essential as that was already determined by our Declaration of Independence. 

 “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness”.     

As a result, churches were deemed non-essential, and in-house church meetings were suspended indefinitely, with no end date in sight.  How many churches went along with this nonsense banning the free exercise of our religious beliefs which are “essential”.  The church was created “essential” by Jesus himself because he lived and died for it, and God designed us to be in fellowship with other believers.  The US Constitution guarantees the “free exercise of religion” in the first amendment, which also makes it essential.  When churches started to reopen many adopted guidelines (Example) from the CDC or the state public health departments; however, many of the churches would not reopen until the government gave them permission.  I can understand that in the beginning church leadership was concerned about the welfare of their flock, but then it went too far.  Churches waited way too long to reopen, and in my opinion should have never closed.  The coronavirus was used to force many tyrannies on the people, and many churches with leadership had either no backbone or they succumbed to fear and were complicit.  They were silent.  Many in government, and the media would celebrate if the church became submissive and totally compliant to the edicts of the state.  The government knows the church has the power to influence, change hearts and minds.  This will never happen if the church remains silent.   Therefore, it is incumbent on the church to start addressing moral, cultural, and political issues, as well as current events.  The early Christian church (synagogue), Rabbi’s not only read and discussed the scriptures, but the synagogue was also the community center and all manner of issues were discussed and debated.  In these last days, the church must do this as well, and not be complicit and die in silence.  Check out the embedded video below.

Wake up and rise church!!  In Jesus name, Amen.
