THE OTHER JESUS, SATAN'S MESSIAH IS COMING--DO YOU LOVE THE TRUTH & RESIST DECEPTION?

He says something interesting, Satan doesn't know the timing, so Hitler was a dress rehearsal. When the President of Germany dies Hitler becomes a dictator, the same day. That is eerily like the Fall of Babylon described in Daniel, and could be a preview of what happens in the US.

My point is we should be able to look closely at Hitler's rise to power as a dress rehearsal for the Antichrist. I don't know that it gives us any real insight into the God and the rapture, but does give us insight into Satan and the man of sin.

whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.

James 4:4b whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.

Everyone is confused by cults, this is the single biggest deception, trying to be a friend of the world. A fundamental message of the gospel is that the worldly system is like a condemned building that will be destroyed. Therefore why would the world be friends with us and why would you be naive enough to think you can be a friend of the world? The fundamental error in the apostasy is trying to be friends with the world. The fundamental error for James was his trying to be friends with the Judaizers.

Do you want more grace?

James 4:6 But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.

Many churches and ministries think that being friends with the world will help. A really good sound system can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. Advertising, billboards, renting out large stadiums, touring the country, all these things "cost money". Taylor Swift can fill large stadiums, sell albums, and pay for all that stuff, but her ministry will lead everyone to hell. What your church and your ministry needs more than anything is not money, it is grace. Be humble, let God give you more grace.

Rebellion is occultic, Satanic.

1Samuel 15:23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the Lord, he hath also rejected thee from being king.

Election fraud is rebellion against the US constitution. It is occultic and Satanic. Do not be deceived, the people selling out the country are satanic. They are rebelling against the majority of this country who worship Jesus and trust in the Bible.

Rebellion is an open invitation to Satan to destroy your life.

When it rains it pours

This week we had a court ruling made public where they determined that the voting machines can steal votes and are not safe.

We also had evidence presented in Georgia that ballots were stuffed and counted twice in 2020 and the judge ruled the election was fraudulent.

And we now have a new study that says contrary to the official narrative that the vaccine saved 14 million lives in actuality we had 17 million excess deaths.

We also learn that Ukraine has lost.

We also learn that Trump is winning in the polls hands down over Biden.

We also learn that if you let a country like Argentina have a fair election the populist candidate will win hands down.

We also learn about war crimes committed by Hamas using Hospitals and mosques.

Finally, we also learn from Moody's that the three biggest banks in the US are about to collapse and the US government cannot bail them out.

You get what you need

1. When the Republicans won the house in 2022 people were hoping for all kinds of things like impeachment and border security. But what we got was cutting off money to Ukraine and their money laundry operation to elect Democrats. Without that money you can be sure the Democrats will lose more seats in the house and the Senate. This means in 2024 they will control both the house and the Senate.

2. We were hoping for impeachment of Biden but what we got was 91 indictments of Trump. But look at the results, nothing that can get him off the ballot and his poll numbers are blowing away Biden. At this point in time no one can envision Biden beating Trump. This means MAGA will win the House, the Senate and the Presidency.

3. Meanwhile the evidence of the damage from the vaccine continues to drip out. Already if someone is fully in tune to the studies done they will realize that we are gearing up for the biggest class action lawsuit in human history. This also can cut off the money to the corrupt politicians who are bought and paid for by these evil sorcerers.

4. Meanwhile evidence comes out that the machines can steal elections laying the groundwork to have them outlawed prior to the 2024 election. If that happens you can expect another 6% bump to the populists candidates.

5. Also two separate trials have judgements that show that elections are being stolen by stuffing ballots into these boxes. Once again, if this practice is outlawed for the 2024 election you can expect another 2% bump to the populists candidates.

Everything is falling into place for a clean sweep of this 2024 election not by "Republicans" but by "populists". Those who support investigating election fraud, and investigating the vaccine and the vaccine mandate and Ukraine, and the money laundry scheme that was used there, as well as closing the border to illegals and even deporting those who are here illegally.

Project Looking Glass: The Danger of Knowing the Future
He makes a couple of interesting points.

1. He ties the Fukushima plant disaster in as a 9 year warning to the day prior to the Pandemic and that is tied to the judgement of the great Babylon, the sorceress in Revelation 17.

I feel like this strengthens my argument that the Pandemic was the fulfillment of the Feast of Trumpets and that was a ten year warning to Judgement day and Armageddon.

Of course the book "The Harbinger" ties 9/11 into a 19 year warning of the Pandemic and the Feast of Trumpets.

2. He looks at the Full Moon as the day of the rapture, that is tied to Proverbs which says the good man returns on the appointed day, indicating a full moon.

We already had a prophecy that you have a solar eclipse and then a lunar eclipse prior to the great and notable day. I have suggested that this prophecy would have to be a one month warning because after the next full moon this wouldn't make sense. If we connect these two together then it would be on the full moon following a solar eclipse then lunar eclipse. That would on average narrow it down to one day a year. I have already pointed out that the 21 notorious failed predictions of the rapture would have all been debunked ahead of time using this one prophecy especially if we combine it with the word in Proverbs about it being on a full moon.

3. I have also pointed out that Jesus is the same today, yesterday and forever. Every key event in the Lord's life was a fulfillment of a holy day on the Hebrew calendar. God operates based on "appointed days" and the holy days are dress rehearsals for the big event. In the New Testament we only have one appointed day and that is the Lord's table meeting which is a dress rehearsal for the wedding feast in the heavens. Therefore I have felt that the rapture should be on the Lord's day. A Pre-tribulation rapture would take place seven years before the end, so if the end is in 2030 we expect it to be in 2023. Therefore a full moon that takes place on the Lord's day after a solar eclipse which was followed by a lunar eclipse. That would point to this Lord's day.

However, if all these prophecies are being accurately interpreted then if it isn't this Lord's day you won't have another day like this until April 5th, 2026.

4. In this video he points out how the math with Daniel's 2520 days and 1335 days can still work out, also pointing to this Lord's day which would be Nov 27th in Jerusalem while being Nov 26th in the US.

5. Now we can also look at "the days of Noah" where "violence" (Hamas) was in the land as a key indicator of the day. Since Israel has returned to the Land and established a nation again this is probably the first Lord's day that fulfills all these prophecies.

6. I have theorized that Isaiah 17:1, "Damascus becomes a ruinous heap" is the modern equivalent of the death of Methuselah at the time of Noah. The prophecy was that when Methuselah dies then the end will come. Damascus is the oldest continuously inhabited city, so becoming a ruinous heap would be analogous to the day Methuselah died, another key day in the days of Noah.

7. I also expect to see mob violence as seen in the days of Lot. I think the destruction of Damascus will incite mob violence around the world fulfilling the Lord's word that it would be as the days of Lot.

I am watching to see if we get terrorist attacks over Thanksgiving which lead to the destruction of Damascus and then mob violence like the days of Lot. Thanksgiving and Black Friday are the optimum days for terrorist attacks.

8. In Amos the prophecy is that He will turn our feasts and our songs of joy into songs of mourning. After Thanksgiving the radios all switch to Christmas songs. Christmas is not God's feast, it is "ours" and imagine listening to those songs after the rapture and after sixty million die in the fire falling on "Sodom and Gomorrah" (some of the major cities in the US).

If we consider this prophecy as referring to the Christmas season, then we would be looking for a Lord's day that takes place immediately after Thanksgiving.

Christmas is actually supposed to be the birthday of the Antichrist and since the Antichrist gets revealed after the rapture this would also support the idea that the rapture takes place before Christmas. In the last 73 years since Israel became a nation there would only be one Lord's day that fulfills all these requirements.

9. However, the antichrist is supposed to confirm the covenant with the many for one week and so it turns out that following this Lord's day we have COP28 which is a seven year covenant that the UN is confirming. The first day is Nov 30th, this will be "strengthened" by creating one world digital currency. We also see BRICS, a ten nation confederacy rising as a replacement to the US dollar. If the US were attacked this weekend and destroyed you could use COP28 to institute this change.

So if you have 3 days of darkness after the attack on the US and the rapture it would bring us to the beginning of COP28 and the world's need for a "savior".

2Samuel 22:2 And he said, The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer;

3 The God of my rock; in him will I trust: he is my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge, my saviour; thou savest me from violence.

4 I will call on the Lord, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.


5 When the waves of death compassed me, the floods of ungodly men made me afraid;

6 The sorrows of hell compassed me about; the snares of death prevented me;

7 In my distress I called upon the Lord, and cried to my God: and he did hear my voice out of his temple, and my cry did enter into his ears.

8 Then the earth shook and trembled; the foundations of heaven moved and shook, because he was wroth.

9 There went up a smoke out of his nostrils, and fire out of his mouth devoured: coals were kindled by it.

10 He bowed the heavens also, and came down; and darkness was under his feet.

11 And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly: and he was seen upon the wings of the wind.

12 And he made darkness pavilions round about him, dark waters, and thick clouds of the skies.

13 Through the brightness before him were coals of fire kindled.

14 The Lord thundered from heaven, and the most High uttered his voice.

15 And he sent out arrows, and scattered them; lightning, and discomfited them.

16 And the channels of the sea appeared, the foundations of the world were discovered, at the rebuking of the Lord, at the blast of the breath of his nostrils.

17 He sent from above, he took me; he drew me out of many waters;

18 He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them that hated me: for they were too strong for me.

19 They prevented me in the day of my calamity: but the Lord was my stay.

20 He brought me forth also into a large place: he delivered me, because he delighted in me.

21 The Lord rewarded me according to my righteousness: according to the cleanness of my hands hath he recompensed me.

22 For I have kept the ways of the Lord, and have not wickedly departed from my God.

23 For all his judgments were before me: and as for his statutes, I did not depart from them.

24 I was also upright before him, and have kept myself from mine iniquity.

25 Therefore the Lord hath recompensed me according to my righteousness; according to my cleanness in his eye sight.

26 With the merciful thou wilt shew thyself merciful, and with the upright man thou wilt shew thyself upright.

27 With the pure thou wilt shew thyself pure; and with the froward thou wilt shew thyself unsavoury.

28 And the afflicted people thou wilt save: but thine eyes are upon the haughty, that thou mayest bring them down.

29 For thou art my lamp, O Lord: and the Lord will lighten my darkness.

30 For by thee I have run through a troop: by my God have I leaped over a wall.

31 As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the Lord is tried: he is a buckler to all them that trust in him.

32 For who is God, save the Lord? and who is a rock, save our God?

33 God is my strength and power: and he maketh my way perfect.

34 He maketh my feet like hinds' feet: and setteth me upon my high places.

35 He teacheth my hands to war; so that a bow of steel is broken by mine arms.

36 Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation: and thy gentleness hath made me great.

37 Thou hast enlarged my steps under me; so that my feet did not slip.

38 I have pursued mine enemies, and destroyed them; and turned not again until I had consumed them.

39 And I have consumed them, and wounded them, that they could not arise: yea, they are fallen under my feet.

40 For thou hast girded me with strength to battle: them that rose up against me hast thou subdued under me.

41 Thou hast also given me the necks of mine enemies, that I might destroy them that hate me.

42 They looked, but there was none to save; even unto the Lord, but he answered them not.

43 Then did I beat them as small as the dust of the earth, I did stamp them as the mire of the street, and did spread them abroad.

44 Thou also hast delivered me from the strivings of my people, thou hast kept me to be head of the heathen: a people which I knew not shall serve me.

45 Strangers shall submit themselves unto me: as soon as they hear, they shall be obedient unto me.

46 Strangers shall fade away, and they shall be afraid out of their close places.

47 The Lord liveth; and blessed be my rock; and exalted be the God of the rock of my salvation.

48 It is God that avengeth me, and that bringeth down the people under me.

49 And that bringeth me forth from mine enemies: thou also hast lifted me up on high above them that rose up against me: thou hast delivered me from the violent man.

50 Therefore I will give thanks unto thee, O Lord, among the heathen, and I will sing praises unto thy name.

51 He is the tower of salvation for his king: and sheweth mercy to his anointed, unto David, and to his seed for evermore.

Therefore I will give thanks unto thee

I am thankful that we are now seeing the proof concerning the vaccine and the pandemic. I pray that the evidence released recently will result in Moderna and Pfizer being held liable for the harm they have caused.

I am thankful that the courts have now ruled that the ballot boxes facilitate election fraud, I pray that this evidence will result in laws, regulations, and precautions to maintain the integrity of one person one vote.

I am thankful that the courts have heard the evidence on how the machines can be hacked and pray that this will result in the US going back to paper ballots which cannot be manipulated by an enemy through the internet.

I am thankful that Hunter Biden's laptop has been verified and the evidence of Joe Biden selling access to foreign governments has begun to be made public. I pray that this will result in the removal from office all public officials who have sold themselves to foreign powers.

I am thankful that the FTX trial resulted in a conviction for money laundry and that using the billions sent to Ukraine to fund political campaigns in the US has been cut off. I pray that this form of theft from the US taxpayers will be thoroughly and completely judged and all involved held accountable.

I am thankful that the flight logs of those who went to Epstein Island are now being made public and pray that all those involved in this abusive honey pot will have their sins shouted from the rooftop. I pray that the human traffickers will be brought to justice and the networks that have been set up will be thoroughly rooted up.

I am thankful for people like Steve Bannon, Dr. Malone and Dr. Wolf who have stood strong in the face of withering ridicule and insults.

I am thankful that all the video from January 6th is being released, I pray that this will be used to prosecute and convict the guilty while exonerating the innocent.

I am thankful that the terror tunnels in Israel are being destroyed and the war crimes of Hamas are being revealed. I pray that this malignant cancer of an organization will be rooted out of Gaza and Israel.

I am thankful that the lab leak theory of Covid19 is no longer censored and people can see this pandemic was an act of war.

I am thankful that the shadow banning on Twitter was revealed and is no longer called a conspiracy theory.

I am thankful that the governments involvement in censoring Americans has been revealed and is no longer a conspiracy theory.

I am thankful that the truth about the vaccine has been brought into the light, it does not prevent infection, to not lessen the effects of getting sick, and that it is not "safe" but has very harmful side effects.

I am thankful that the illegal funding of gain of function research by Fauci and others has been brought out into the light.

I am thankful that the US is no longer supporting Nazis in Ukraine.

I am thankful that the gospel is going out throughout the whole earth through the internet.

I am thankful for all the spirit filled saints who are restraining evil, speaking truth, and shining a light on this earth.

I am thankful for all the prophecies in the Bible that tell us the end from the beginning. They strengthen our faith in the rock of our salvation.

What is the Greatest Threat Today? 11/23/2023
I think many of these events that the prophets have seen happen almost simultaneously.

1. I think we are already in the internal revolution. We hear every day about the White hats vs the Black hats. I think the weaponization of the DOJ proves we are in an internal revolution. I think the black hats lose and all the other events that take place were "plan B" in the event the Black hats lose.

2. The one thing I have the hardest time calculating is the New Madrid fault, does this happen next? I don't know. It seems like the attack from Russia would be overkill if this happened before Russia attacks, that is why I think it is either at the same time or after.

3. Suitcase nukes -- I expect this happens before Russia attacks because it is the hardest to fight against. If Russia fired missiles at the US we would see, we would know who is attacking and we would respond. If the suitcase nukes go off in 25 cities it would be worse than 25 9/11's. Each nuke takes out ten city blocks and makes it so no one wants to live or work in the area.

3a -- When the nukes go off they also fry out the electric grid in that city, taking out 25 cities brings down the large sub station transformers in those cities and thus brings down the entire electric grid for the US. This alone will kill tens of millions of Americans. This can result in nuclear power plants melting down.

3b -- The power going down results in riots and looting across the country on a scale that is unimaginable. Every city becomes a hell hole, no food, no water, no gasoline, and people being shot and killed randomly in the streets and in their homes.

3c -- The US stock market crashes within the same hour that those nukes go off, when the full scale of the catastrophe is seen (nationwide blackout that will not be restored for 18 months) every stock on the NYSE and Nasdaq will be worthless.

3d -- US dollar is worthless as leaves blowing in the wind as soon as it is clear that the US economy has completely burned up like Sodom and Gomorrah.

4. At this point I expect the 250,000 military men in the US will begin with terrorist attacks, probably focusing on police to accelerate the chaos, rioting and looting so that Americans kill each other. This should include poisoning the water supply which will be much easier without electricity.

5. The full scale attack from Russia will probably wait a couple of weeks to allow for Americans to kill each other, use up their ammo on each other, get sick, and starve. At this point they can require gun confiscations due to the violence and can come in as "UN peace keepers".

6. So return to the "splitting of America" that would occur as a result of us splitting Israel and we would not be in a position to do that after all this took place. Therefore I suspect this may take place coincidentally with the suitcase nukes. If a meteor were to hit the Atlantic ocean causing a giant Tsunami and this earthquake it could be the perfect cover for the surprise attack to happen at the same time.

Wow, how foolish I was. The dead in Christ will rise first, that will be a great earthquake, that is when we see the New Madrid Fault open up and the San Andreas Fault split off part of California.

The rapture is a "harpazo", a snatching away out of the imminent death, so that means the order for the suitcase nukes to be detonated was already given and they were just about to go off when we get snatched.

Remember all of this stuff happens in an hour to cause the US to be destroyed. After the fallen angels are cast to earth the Dragon will spew a flood out of his mouth after those left behind, that will be Chinese and Russian "peace keepers" coming to round up the Christians but they will flee to the wilderness.

God is the only one that tells the end from the beginning -- Learn this lesson

Two and a half years ago I was lectured by my family on the fact that the Hunter Biden laptop was Russian disinformation and the January 6th event was a violent insurrection and my disagreement on those accepted facts were both shameful and a cause for concern for my mental health.

When this last week the video from the capital was released proving that the narrative presented by the MSM was clearly not the whole story and in fact, not even representative of the story for 99.9% of those who were there. I shared this with them and the response was crickets.

I then shared a court ruling in Georgia that the machines are capable of stealing an election and are not safe as well as recent court rulings of how ballots were stuffed in the ballot boxes to steal elections.

The response is that they do not want to receive any more of these emails.

First we all should take this to heart, we will have to give account for every word we have spoken. If you told someone "shame on you" and you were wrong you want to confess and repent of that prior to the judgement seat of Christ.

Second, we need to embrace the truth, regardless of whether or not it contradicts my view of reality. It is a mercy from God that we could know the truth today, and act accordingly.

Not only did they accuse me of behaving shamefully they also took actions to get me blocked on facebook.

There were many, many people who were deceived in the last few years by the lies. Perhaps you bought into the whole official narrative about the pandemic and vaccine and mandate. The truth has come out fully exonerating those who questioned the official narrative. It may be embarrassing to admit mistakes but the sooner you do, the sooner you confess and repent the better you will feel in your spirit and the better you will fare at the judgement seat.

My family is well aware of my stance on the coming tribulation and the soon rapture. They have been insulting about that as well, but as they see the things in the world taking place don't bury your head in the sand. If you originally were skeptical about the tribulation and rapture that is not embarrassing, not even something to repent of. But if you were insulting, the sooner you repent and confess that the better. The world is going to learn a very hard lesson, just because they say something isn't so doesn't make it not so. God is the only one that tells the end from the beginning, learn this lesson and be humbled under the mighty hand of God.

God doesn't play

Imagine you own a house and someone comes and tells you that the house is built on sand and when a big storm comes your house will collapse. You don't want to hear that, but the best response is not to ignore that but to act appropriately.

For example, when De Blasio mandated the vaccine I did not want to leave my job. I liked what I was doing, I felt it was my ministry, and I felt that it was a good work. However, I also knew that the vaccine mandate was a lie, they were lying and trying to coerce and pressure people into taking it and that was a big red fire alarm going off because of that.

Both my wife and I resigned, it was the only action I could see regardless of how much I didn't want to do that. Once we resigned we could no longer afford NYC so we sold the house and moved 1,000 miles away, again, not what we wanted but I realized actions like this bring God's judgment and that would fall on NYC.

People expect to see the judgment fall immediately, but it took us about 8 months so resign, sell the house and move, and it wasn't until after we closed on the house that mortgage rates began to rise. What good is a warning if you don't have time to respond to it, so of course God gives you time to respond to the warning. But if we tried to move now we either wouldn't be able to sell the house or else would lose all of our equity in it. So there is a price to pay for delay, God gives you a warning, you have time to respond, but don't try and "play God", He doesn't play.

Some people will mock, ridicule and otherwise slander those who respond to God's warnings. This somehow makes them feel better about ignoring that gnawing feeling inside. When it gets very obvious that all the houses are starting to collapse from the wind and rain, instead of saying "I was wrong, we need to move now before it is too late" they stay locked in place like a deer in the headlights and beg the world to please stop. These are those who built their house on the sand and just want to pretend it is built on the rock.
