Ezekiel 12:26 The word of the Lord came to me: 27 “Son of man, the Israelites are saying, ‘The vision he sees is for many years from now, and he prophesies about the distant future.’

28 “Therefore say to them, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: None of my words will be delayed any longer; whatever I say will be fulfilled, declares the Sovereign Lord.’”

Ezekiel 13:8 “‘Therefore this is what the Sovereign Lord says: Because of your false words and lying visions, I am against you, declares the Sovereign Lord. 9 My hand will be against the prophets who see false visions and utter lying divinations. They will not belong to the council of my people or be listed in the records of Israel, nor will they enter the land of Israel. Then you will know that I am the Sovereign Lord.

Psalm 27 In the Time of Trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion

1 The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?

Are you seriously afraid of Joe Biden? AOC? Pelosi? Please, they are all just dust in the wind compared to the Lord Jesus.

2 When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.

I have had experiences in my past where the wicked, mine enemies and my foes, came to eat up my flesh. This has happened a number of times and every time they stumbled and fell. For example I was in college and had a prevailing gospel ministry that was impacting the entire campus. The professor at my college told my parents that I had "wasted my time there" and by extension their money as they were paying tuition. Shortly after doing that he was hosting a party after a school play, his wife was under the table making out with some student. I heard students talking about this in my Spanish class and then by the Lord's design I had to go to his house to get something done, first time I had been there since the first week of my freshman year four years earlier. I could see what had happened to him and his family first hand. The Lord made sure I saw. He had tried to attack the Lord's servant, the Lord is strong to defend. That put me into fear, the word "vengeance is mine, I will repay" was burned into my brain.

3 Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.

I have the full assurance of faith in the Lord Jesus as savior. We all need to have the full assurance of faith. If you do you can enjoy the show. Another example, a professor who wrote for a Texas monthly magazine came and reviewed our church for a religious column. We all knew that the purpose was to curse the church just like Balaam. However, the article was just like one of Balaam's prophecies where God turned the curse to a blessing.

4 One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to enquire in his temple.

Yes, I am rejoicing that this day is near. That does not mean I am rejoicing in the suffering that is about to take place. Everyone was told that the world was condemned, that is a fundamental truth to the gospel. Everyone was told that if you build with wood, hay and stubble it will be burned up with fire, but you will be saved as through fire. Because of this I chose Jesus. Yes, as I see the day approaching I rejoice and I also rejoice that I made the choice to choose Jesus. When I was just a kid making this choice for the first time I realized what I do in life, in depends on whether or not God is real. If God is real that changes everything. If others didn't realize that, and ignored God and rejected the gospel then they will have to repent for that.

5 For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.

This Psalm is prayed by the Jews during the month of Elul. The month of Elul precedes the strart of the tribulation and this is the time that we need the Lord to hide us in His pavilion. The rapture is when we are in the secret tabernacle and are set upon a rock.

6 And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the Lord.

Yes, I will rejoice and sing praises. I wasn't their enemy, they were my enemy. I didn't go to war with them, I told them the truth of the gospel and because of that they went to war with me.

7 Hear, O Lord, when I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me, and answer me.

Yes, Christians need to have a testimony, they need to speak to the Lord with their voice, they need to pray for mercy. If you want the Lord to be merciful to you then you need to be merciful to others. Only then can you pray "have mercy also upon me".

8 When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, Lord, will I seek.

Elul is the month that begins when we are back to back and it ends with us face to face. Throughout our entire church age there have been those who have been back to back with Jesus, going the opposite direction and refusing to listen to Him. Well, the tribulation will turn them around so they are face to face with Him.

9 Hide not thy face far from me; put not thy servant away in anger: thou hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation.

Is the Lord your help? Really? What about your paycheck? If you left your job would you pray Lord "leave me not neither forsake me, O God of my salvation"? This is the prayer of those who are left behind, during the tribulation you pray that the Lord doesn't put you away in anger, that He will continue to be your help, that He not leave you, nor forsake you.

10 When my father and my mother forsake me, then the Lord will take me up.

The Government and your job are going to forsake you if you don't get the vaccine, but the Bible says "then the Lord will take me up". The tribulation will be a time when father and mother will forsake you.

11 Teach me thy way, O Lord, and lead me in a plain path, because of mine enemies.

We have to be focused like a laser on the word of God, otherwise it is no longer a plain path, it is a hidden path.

12 Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty.

They are saying that the unvaccinated are the cause of the pandemic. This is a false witness, they are breathing out cruelty with the vaccine mandate. Soon the believers will be blamed for the collapse of the economy, for all the people dying from famine and the vaccine, and in the end the solution to everyone's problems will be to kill the Christians.

13 I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.

Once again, you want to breathe easily? Read the word, meditate on the word, fill yourself with faith so that you will believe to see the goodness of the Lord.

14 Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.

Ezekiel 16:35 “‘Therefore, you prostitute, hear the word of the Lord! 36 This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Because you poured out your lust and exposed your naked body in your promiscuity with your lovers, and because of all your detestable idols, and because you gave them your children’s blood, 37 therefore I am going to gather all your lovers, with whom you found pleasure, those you loved as well as those you hated. I will gather them against you from all around and will strip you in front of them, and they will see you stark naked. 38 I will sentence you to the punishment of women who commit adultery and who shed blood; I will bring on you the blood vengeance of my wrath and jealous anger. 39 Then I will deliver you into the hands of your lovers, and they will tear down your mounds and destroy your lofty shrines. They will strip you of your clothes and take your fine jewelry and leave you stark naked. 40 They will bring a mob against you, who will stone you and hack you to pieces with their swords. 41 They will burn down your houses and inflict punishment on you in the sight of many women. I will put a stop to your prostitution, and you will no longer pay your lovers. 42 Then my wrath against you will subside and my jealous anger will turn away from you; I will be calm and no longer angry.

43 “‘Because you did not remember the days of your youth but enraged me with all these things, I will surely bring down on your head what you have done, declares the Sovereign Lord. Did you not add lewdness to all your other detestable practices?

But I believe it’s time to sound what is the final warning alarm before invasion is evident in the United States. And I say evident as in plainly seen because the United States has already been infiltrated. So it’s imminent and just a matter when. I just heard there are over 250,000 terroristic sleeper cells in the US. lying dormant waiting to be activated, given orders to advance. Michael Yan an investigative journalist says there have been over 10,000 Chinese fighting age males coming across the US border for the last 18 months. The Chinese have thousands and thousands and thousands of acres of land in Texas, Minnesota, and elsewhere in our country. They have built their own military runways on American land. Our government has allowed them to bring their troops in. They are just waiting for the command. There have been ships off of the California coast full of storage containers that the Americans have always believed hold supplies. But what they contain is armies of Chinese ready for invasion. World War 3. Americans are deceived into believing the United States is untouchable and inaccessible. But We have been a Country with NO Walls and open boarders for years! That is all by design! But this country of people have fallen asleep in the lap of luxury. That’s the same thing that Israel thought a month ago when one night, Oct 7th while all were sleeping the enemy attacked and slaughtered. All the defenses that Israel thought they had, were jammed, and the enemy came in. Everyone was living their life, business as usual, unaware of what was about to happen. Same thing with the Americans. Americans live in a delusion that the US is indestructible, which is of a false sense of security! I know I have talked about preparing and storing up food, water, fuel, generators and so on for the last couple years or so. Now what I’ve been saying doesn’t seem so far fetched, as war has broke out in Israel and is on our threshold. The big question is, when the nukes start to fly and the bombs are bursting in air and on the ground what happens if we don’t make it? God has been warning his people for 40 years of this invasion and mass destruction through his prophets. And Why? As 2 Peter 3:9 says he’s not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance. This is not about physically perishing/ dying. It’s about our soul perishing. Mathew 10:28 says Do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear HIM who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. The only preparing that matters is where we are going to spend eternity. Because once the war breaks out, it’ll be too late to decide. One bomb in the neighborhood and were gone, standing immediately in front of the Judge and Master of the Universe. And He will ask, what did you do with my son Jesus? We are eternal beings. We are not this flesh or this body, we are spirit and live forever, either in heaven or hell. It’s our choice.

The Key points

The great sign from Revelation 12 that appeared on September 23rd, 2017, the first time it is has appeared in the last two thousand years, and coincidentally appeared during Yom Teruah, the Festival of Trumpets, that is a very major sign of the end of the age.

The Fig Tree prophecy indicating an 80 year time frame from 1950 to 2030 is also a major sign that this is the end of the age. (1950 was when Israel's knesset first met, that would be the fig tree putting forth the tender leaves).

The Pandemic is also a sign that the end of the age is at hand based on the book of Joel. This is why I think it was the fulfillment of the Feast of Trumpets and the ten year period from 2020 to 2030 is a chance to prepare to meet your God.

The global shutdown of the economy is also a sign prophesied about in Joel and appears to be referred to allegorically by Israel crossing the Jordan river when they entered the good land.

The BLM protests are prophesied in the book of Jonah.

The Pro Gaza protests remind me of the days of Lot

The world is filled with Hamas -- as in the days of Noah. The Hebrew word for violence is "Hamas".

The Stop the Steal protests are prophesied in Esther.

Knowledge has increased -- Google and the computer power in our hands was prophesied.

People will run to and fro through the scrolls -- our ability to use the computer to run to and fro through the scripture was prophesied

The Current war in Israel was prophesied in Psalm 83

Russia's invasion of Ukraine -- Ezekiel 38 war appears to be taking shape.

1917 and 1967 were both prophesied -- these events concerning Israel and Jerusalem were prophesied telling us that these were Jubilee years and therefore 2017 is also a jubilee year, the year Trump moved our embassy to Jerusalem.

The other Fig tree prophecy -- The fourth year being "the dung year" and then after that the tree being cut down in the tribulation is prophesied. Last year was the dung year, this is the year the Lord cuts down the tree.

68 indicating a world war of judgement -- the dates for WWI and WWII beginning both add to 68 as does the date of the Russia invasion of Ukraine which will lead to WWIII.

The Two cows with the 7s -- these prophesy in 2015 concerning 7 years of plenty and then 7 years of famine beginning in the Fall of 2021.

Without a doubt all of these signs have been seen previously in human history. The great sign from Revelation 12 seems to have been seen at the time of Jesus' birth and also at the time of Adam and Eve. We have had previous pandemics as well. We have also had localized shutdowns of the economy but nothing worldwide. We have had a civil rights movement in various places. Individually I would not consider any one of these signs to be conclusive, but taken together, all six of them, the odds are astronomical. So it is important to look even closer.

Luke 8 -- "And He charged them to Tell no one what had happened"

This is strange, earlier a man had a legion of demons cast out of him into a herd of swine and Jesus told Him to go and "tell what great things God has done for you". After that a woman who touched the hem of His garment was healed of an infirmity she had had for 12 years. She tried to hide but Jesus wouldn't allow it and forced her to make a public confession of her healing.

But then we come to this story of the ruler of the synagogue coming to Jesus to heal his only daughter who is dying and then dies. So then what is the difference?

We are not saved or healed simply by the blood of Jesus, we are also saved by the word of our testimony. If the man who had the demons cast out had remained silent it would have been like the home that was neatly swept which is then possessed by even more demons. After being healed he needs to actively testify, his body was used by the demons, he is on the front lines of this battle, you can't be neutral.

Likewise with the woman who is healed, she also needs to make a public testimony concerning the great things that God did for her in healing her of her sickness. Jesus requires these testimonies.

But he prohibits people telling "what happened" to others. There is no prohibition to the 12 year old girl for her to tell her testimony, but suppose her father, the ruler of the synagogue takes this story and runs with it, publishing a best selling book on how his daughter died, saw Jesus, and then came back to life? Part of the girl's healing process is for her to tell her testimony and not have others steal it and peddle it.

By all means share your testimony of what great things God has done for you, but do not theorize and try to peddle a story "about what happened" to someone else. This twelve your old girl was sickly, dying and ultimately died. Maybe this was because she wasn't ever allowed to speak concerning her experiences of the Lord. Maybe silencing the parents would be the only way to give her a chance to speak. Everyone will want to know, they'll look to the parents who will refuse to say anything so that will force everyone to turn to her to ask her for her experience.

Faith, hope and love

I was reading Hebrews 13 and was wondering why the book doesn't end with Hebrews 11, when you write you are supposed to end with a bang. But then I realized chapter 11 was about faith, chapter 12 was about our hope, and chapter 13 was about love.

Hebrews 13:5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. 6 So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.

It is very common to hear people at work having their conversation full of covetousness, they can be talking about some super duper car they want, or boat, or house. But the most super duper testimony is when you hear about how the Lord never leaves you or forsakes you in the midst of great trouble. That is far better. I have also heard a lot of fellowship about the mark of the beast and how you need to have the right attitude so you don't take it. This verse is the right attitude "the Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me."
