Trump is up against both the media and the CIA. The CIA started infiltrating media with Operation Mockingbird, soon after Harry Truman created the Agency in 1947â and the infiltration has continued to this day.
The crossover point occurred about five minutes after President Truman launched the Agency. The CIAâs mandate was: collect information about what was going on around the world, so it could advise the president.
But CIA directors, starting especially with Allen Dulles, had a different vision.
Why just collect information?
Since the Agencyâs job was digging up secrets, why not invent secrets?
Why not invent entire patterns and platforms of information to support an agenda of US global domination?
Why not invent endless enemies who needed to be conquered?
After all, domination was the objective of the super powerful Council on Foreign Relations, coming out of World War
The CFR stood outside and above the government in the shadows. It was a Rockefeller operation. The Rockefeller family was uncrowned royalty. Shouldnât the CIA align itself with that REAL power?
It took some years for the CIA to fully realize the Rockefeller agenda was global governmentânot US hegemony. So the CIA adjusted its sights and its motives and its invention of data, to fit the Globalist picture.
Flash forward. Trump, suddenly signaling NATIONALISM NOT GLOBALISM, in 2016, was a distinct threat. That signal could wake up millions of people who hadnât thought about either Nationalism or Globalism.
The point wasnât about whether Trump meant what he advocated. The point was: what effect would he have on the American people and other nations around the world, who could revert to Nationalism?
The CIA threw together a bunch of invented data about Russia influencing the election for Trump. Thoroughly in bed with the Washington Post and the NY Times, the Agency put out the word, and within a day the media echo chamber was alive with âRussia hacked the election.â
It was a typical discredit and destroy op. Delegitimize the Trump presidency. Focus on the man, not the message. Wipe out the Nationalism message by defaming the messenger.
âThe cat is out of the bag. Now we have to put it back in the bag.â
Not so easy, particularly with thousands of online independent media outlets humming at full force.
Those who exclusively focus on whether Trump is a true Nationalist, a secret Globalist, or a neocon, are missing a key point. Trump woke up millions of people with his Nationalist messages. Those people are now moving outside the CIA-media nexus. They are springing from that trap.
A new sensation and feeling and thought-process is loose in the world. It was there before Trump, but he pumped it up to a full roar.
The CIA invents, every day, a world in which Globalism must win and should win. It turns its out propaganda 24/7. It thus saturates media.
It is Orwellâs Ministry of Truth.
JFK and RFK were obstacles to the forward motion of the CIA? Get them out of the way.
Trump is an impediment? At the very least, destroy his persona.
The CIA has no particular interest in who Trump âreally is.â They only care about what effect he could have on the population.
After years of compliance from Obama, George W Bush, Bill Clinton, and Bush the Elder (a former CIA director), the Agency suddenly saw this swaggering cowboy appear strolling over the horizon. The Donald.
What did he think he was doing? Where did he get this Nationalism? What was going on?
Trump started right in, attacking the media. Did he know something he wasnât supposed to know? Did he know the media were a branch of the CIA propaganda tree?
Did he know the CIA considered itself the true president of the United States?
Did he know the CIA had been carrying out a monster covert op for 70 years, pretending to be the eyes and ears for the presidentâbut actually consolidating its stranglehold on the Oval Office and the Congress?
Was it possible Trump knew that the CIA, while claiming to forward US interests around the world, was, behind that pose, actually positioning Globalism as the ultimate international victor?
Was Trump aware that all traces of Nationalism, across the planet, were being censored and erased by major media?
Could he see that?
In his cavalier, off-the-cuff, impulsive, boastful way, was he waking up a sleeping giant?
Was there a deep tidal wave, gathering force far out in the ocean, a wave of Nationalism, percolating, as if waiting for a signal to proceed toward many shores?
Had decades of routine lying and data-invention at the CIA made the smartest minds there complacent and inattentive?
Was the Agency about to receive a titanic blindsiding blow?
The CIA sent out the word to its many minions in the press, government, think tanks, foundations, and Globalist organizations: say anything and do anything to discredit this crazy president NOW. Donât wait. It doesnât matter what you accuse him of. Throw everything youâve got at him and hope enough of it sticks. If saying he comes from Mars works, say he comes from Mars.
The CIA was caught asleep at the wheel. It had no coordinated plan to take down the fast-talking cowboy in the White House. It had to be all hands on deck and HIT IT HARD RIGHT AWAY.
âIf we can take down Trump, we can take down Nationalism and restore Globalism to its rightful place.â
Is that true?
Or are thousands more people all over the world waking up every day, realizing that one global management system for humanity is the covert agendaâand that this plan is about nothing less than complete top-down control, and the decimation of life lived in freedom?
Does Nationalism, as a massive decentralization away from Globalism, come circling back to THE INDIVIDUAL, and his utter refusal to be enslaved?
Is that possible?
Because Iâm here to tell you, if it is possible, then the fact of Donald Trump, in the fullness of time, doesnât matter. What matters is the personal truth that every person knows: HIS OWN LIBERTY.
And trying to dislodge and erase THAT resistance and that hunger for freedom is more than the CIA and all its horses and all its men can achieve.
We are not Humpty-Dumpty.
And fallen, they wonât be able to put themselves back together again.
Certainly, theyâll get no help from us.

The evidence is clear: Barack H. Obama, John O. Brennan, James R. Clapper, Hillary R. Clinton, John D. Podesta, Michael J. Morrell and other US officials and Democratic Party operatives colluded to prevent a Trump victory and now conspire to commit sedition.
Finally, the Obama Administration and the C.I.A. have been caught with their pants down. The traitors working for Deep State, who have completely infiltrated the U.S. intelligence community, the FBI and Obamaâs inner circle, have been exposed by their own handiwork.
Obama and Intelligence Heads Spied on President Donald Trump During Campaign Season
The Trump Administration now possesses the hard evidence that proves conclusively that several of the highest authorities within the U.S. Intelligence Community colluded to utilize their offices and government resources to prevent Donald J. Trump from winning the 2016 presidential election.
âTHIS THING IS SO BIG ITâS NOT FUNNY. KENNEDY WAS RIGHT: EITHER THE SPOOKS ARE WITH YOU OR AGAINST YOU. SPYING AND SURVEILLANCE, SEDITION AND TREASON, LAW-BREAKING AND SUBVERSION, ASSASSINATIONS AND FALSE FLAG ATTACKS, COLOR REVOLUTIONS AND CIVIL WARS ARE ALL THE STOCK-IN-TRADE OF THE CIA. ITâS ALL THEY KNOW HOW TO DO. AND THEY ARE RARELY, IF EVER, CAUGHTâ¦ â¦ â¦UNTIL NOW!â âVETERAN INTELLIGENCE ANALYST
What makes âthis thingâ even more serious is that there was (and is) highly coordinated collusion among and between key members of Obamaâs inner circle and the highest echelons of the U.S. intelligence community.
Never in American history has such a serious charge been leveled by the President of the United States at the previous president. Not only are these allegations by Trump the most radioactive ever publicly proclaimed by a sitting POTUS, they constitute the necessary gravity to finally dissolve the C.I.A. as it should be.
What follows are a number of crucial observations made by a former State Department employee and CIA agent.
âIn this case I understand from very good friends that what happened was both Jim Clapper and John Brennan at CIA were intimately involved in trying to derail the candidacy of Donald Trump. That there was some collusion overseas with Britainâs own GHCQ (Government Communications Headquarters). That information that was gathered from GHCQ was actually passed to John Brennan and it was disseminated within the US government. This dissemination was illegal.â (Source: Former CIA Agent Drops Bombshell)
There are very good reasons why the British-owned company known as SERCO is one of the largest US government contractors servicing the Military-Industrial Complex. They can do stuff in the United Kingdom that they cannot do here in the statesâlegally, that is. Likewise, the US intelligence community routinely farms out extremely sensitive intelligence-gathering projects to the GHCQ, not only because of its highest classification of secrecy, but also because it is patently unlawful to conduct such operations on U.S. soil.
âI donât think there can be any doubt of that. I think itâs worth noting that the head of the National Security Agency, an Admiral [Michael] Rogers, made a journey to the Trump Tower shortly after Trump had won. And in the immediate aftermath of his visit, Jim Clapper and others in the intelligence community called for him to be fired. Why did Rodgers go to Trump Tower? My understanding is that it was to cover himself, because he was aware that the NSA authorities had been misused and abused with respect to Donald Trump.â (Source: âD.C. insiders seek to defeat Donald Trumpâ â ex CIA agent)
POTUS BARACK OBAMA, DNI JAMES CLAPPER AND CIA DIRECTOR JOHN BRENNAN
Both the Director of National Intelligence and C.I.A. Director under President Obama made it clear that they did not support a Trump presidency. Never in U.S. history has such a public war been waged between an elected POTUS and the heads of the national intelligence apparatus. Yes, John F. Kennedy had his epic war with CIA Director Allen Dulles, but after Dulles was fired, all the battles went underground until JFK was assassinated.
Thatâs exactly where this is currently going with President Trump, unless he completely shuts down the C.I.A. post haste. The same can be said of the MSM (mainstream media) as fake news 24/7 needs to be terminated asap for the good of the Republic. Trump will be under massive assault each and every day of his first term until he dispatches all of these seditious and criminally insane psychopaths to the intelligence waterless region.
PONERIZATION: How the American Republic was taken over by political cliques of criminally insane psychopaths
CIA Director John O. Brennan has already proven himself guilty of high treason after he, Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, in coordination with British MI6, Israelâs MOSSAD, and Saudi Arabiaâs GID created, supported and armed ISIS, ISIL and the Islamic State, respectively. As a Muslim convert, it really appears that Brennan was the integral player in Obamaâs game plan to overthrow the American Republic, just as the C.I.A did with the Arab Spring throughout the Middle East.
The resulting Obamanation stateside could never have gotten so far unless The Company (also known as the Central Intelligence Agency) was totally on board with Obamaâs treasonous enterprise. Similarly, the Northern Levant was transformed into a dystopian, post-apocalyptic wasteland via CIA-directed color revolutions.
SEDITIOUS AGENTS OF DEEP STATE STILL TRYING TO OVERTHROW PRESIDENT TRUMP
obamasedition1What is most remarkable about this ongoing Soros-funded Purple Revolution against the American Republic is that the perpetrators have doubled their efforts since being found out. They know that they all now face existential threats of the highest order. It doesnât get worse than high treason and sedition, and they havenât quite figured out when they are Trumpâs bad side.
BEWARE: The Purple Revolution Comes To America
Here we are today on Sunday, March 5th, and the many Soros-backed NGOs are marching together in lockstep to force Trump from the White House. That they are also executing their seditious insurrection together with purple revolutionaries like Barack and Michelle Obama, as well as Hillary and Bill Clinton, is even more outrageous given the direct participation of those 2 past US presidents. As a matter of fact, this accelerating soft coup has seen numerous leaders throughout the treacherous Democratic Party coordinate together like clockwork to remove Trump from the Oval Office. The entire party has actually morphed into a full-blown insurgency.
What is quite extraordinary about this rapidly devolving state of affairs is that the Bolshevik elements on the Left have clearly indicated via various news reports that they will resort to any form of violence if necessary. They really donât care how they are perceived by the general public at this point. All they want is to preserve their Obamanation at all costs. They will not give up one inch of their Sodom and Gomorrah no matter what. The following stunning video expresses just how determined the purple revolutionaries have become.
Loretta Lynch: Need more marching, blood, death on streets
Letâs not forget Hillary Clintonâs attempt to galvanize the Purple Revolution (PR) late last month as well. Itâs clear from the timing and seditious content that is baked into so many recent messages given by leaders of the PR that they are getting very desperate. They all know that there is a quickly closing window of opportunity that they must act within lest their chances of political survival be greatly diminished, if not terminated altogether.
That window of opportunity for insurrection by the agents of Deep State is defined by the period that it takes the Trump Administration to fill all the key positions within the U.S. Armed Forces and the national law enforcement apparatus, as well as other key departments and bureaus.
Key Point: âThe bottom line here folks is that we are entering an extraordinary period of tumult and volatility. The previously mentioned 120-day window of insurrection opportunity for Deep State is perhaps the most dangerous since the American Revolutionary War. Yes, itâs that precarious a quagmire which both sides are acutely aware of.â (Source: The Deep State Conducts a Purple Revolution Against the Trump Administration)
This is also why so many movie stars and famous singers and pro athletes are being enlisted to recruit more PR cannon fodder among their adoring masses. Some of these former stars (former because their light has been dimmed considerably as they foolishly ventured into politics) have gone so far off the rails in their disgraceful attempts to bring down President Trump that they will never enjoy the same stature again within American society. Some of them have lost forever perhaps half of their fan base. As follows:

âDRAIN THE SWAMPâ BEFORE ITâS TOO LATE
Itâs quite clear that Team Trump really has their work cut out for them.
However, the Universe, if you will, has made it very easy to âDrain the Swampâ.
There are actually a variety of ways to drain the swamp and take down the many monsters that have swarmed all over our nationâs capital for years. Perhaps the most effective way is to thoroughly investigate and aggressively prosecute the countless Pizzagate perps.
There are also those government officials who were directly and indirectly responsible for the false flag attacks on September 11, 2001 and/or their cover-up. The US government-coordinated Oklahoma City bombing provides another opportunity to grab a bunch of swamp monsters, as do the many false flag operations carried out over 8 years under Obamaâs disastrous presidency.
Because the same traitors are also guilty of conspiring to assassinate of John F. Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Malcolm X, the current Attorney General can even reopen any of these unsolved capital murder cases that involved Americaâs most influential and beloved VIPs.
Most importantly, there is the D.C. scandal known as Pizzagate, as well as the much bigger global scandalâPedogate. The invaluable gift and supremely powerful weapon for the present administration is, of course, Pizzagate. This is precisely why it was first blown wide open just before the 2016 election.
PIZZAGATE: Why it was exposed just before the 2016 election
So, either the Merry Trumpsters in D.C. will set about the process of âdraining the swampâ, or the âSwamp Monstersâ will soon show up at their post-inaugural picnicâUNINVITED. Itâs really that simple. (See: EXPOSED: CIA â The Swamp Monsters)
The bottom line here is that there is no place for open insurrection in America, unless the citizenry is okay with becoming just another Banana Republic. Because thatâs exactly where things are now heading so militant have the Obamabots, Clintonistas and other purple revolutionaries become.
Truly, the real Second American Revolution is about to begin in earnest after it was started by the Trump Movement. However, Soros is forever trying to hijack the revolutionary fervor in order to channel it toward his own fabricated civil war. He and his globalist ilk know full well that We the People have reached our breaking point with regard to the New World Order agenda. Just as the ruling elites knew that Brexit would be successful in the UK, as will Frexit and Nexit eventually be in France and The Netherlands respectively.
The final point here is that the patriotic Trump Movement is on the right side of history. The Manchurian Candidate Barack Obama has been permanently outed as the imposter that he really is, just as Hillary Clinton was exposed as a globalist stooge and warmonger and thusly defeated. Hence, itâs high time to âdrain the swampâ so that all of these swamp monsters can be eradicated from across the land, once and for all. There is no other way!

Researched from J. Dwight Pentecost book âThings to Comeâ
By Pastor Gary Boyd
I have told of the opening of the seven seals that occurs in the first half of the Great Tribulation. Then I have shown you what takes place at the blowing of the seven trumpets and the three woes that take place in the last three. This article will endeavor to show you the knowledge of the judgment of babylon, the description of the harlot and her identity, and what happens to her. So who is this great whore of Babylon?
Revelation 17 outlines the judgment of the great harlot of Babylon, the apostate religious system that exists in the the great tribulation. The system bears the characterization of a harlot Rev. 17:1-2, âAnd there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.â It claims to be Christâs bride but had fallen from its pure position becoming a harlot. Revelation 17: 5 states, â And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth.â Spiritual fornication in scripture has reference to adherence to a false system. Rev. 17:3 says, â So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.â The system is a leader in political affairs and appears to be controlling the Beast system upon which it rides. The system has become very rich and powerful it tells us in Rev. 17:4, â And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication.â The system represents a phase of the development of Christendom that was hitherto unrevealed in that it is called a âmystery.â This system has been the great persecutor of the true saints as it states in Rev. 17:6, âAnd I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.â This system is a organized religion of worldwide scope in Rev. 17:15 stating, âAnd he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.â In Rev. 17:16-17 it says this religious system will be destroyed by the Beast who is the world Antichrist that demands the world worship him as Christ as stated, âAnd the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.For God hath put in their hearts to fulfill his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.â So as you hear from God the this false system of religion will be destroyed by the Beast, the head of the Roman coalition, so that his supremacy may not be threatened.
The Identity of the Harlot
I do not believe it too much to say that Mystery Babylon is the Holy Roman Catholic Church whose colors are scarlet & purple that killed millions in the inquisitions both true Christians & Jews stealing their possessions and wealth by calling them heretics. By using false doctrine found within Romanism directly attributed to babylonian paganism combined with Christianity Constantine declared Rome to be a Christian empire.
This Beast, the Antichrist, who was dominated by the religious harlot system directed by the false prophet, the Pope, rises up against her after he declares himself to be Christ completely destroying Rome the city on seven hills. This would give the Antichrist sole claim to be worshiped as God here on earth.
Judgment of the Beast and His Empire
3 Â½ years into the Great Tribulation after he does away with the false prophet and Rome the Beast goes after the tribulation saints who have taken a stand against him and his empire. No one can eat or buy without the mark of the Beast that shows allegiance to his end time system. Revelation 18: 10, 16-18 says it all, âStanding at a distance for fear of her torment, saying, âAlas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! For in one hour your judgment has come. And saying, âAlas, alas, that great city that was clothed in fine linen, purple, and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls! For in one hour such great riches came to nothing.â Every shipmaster, all who travel by ship, sailors, and as many as trade on the sea, stood at a distance and cried out when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, âWhat is like this great city?â
The destruction of the seat of the Beastâs power is accomplished in a divine visitation by fire in Revelation 18:8, â Therefore her plagues will come in one dayâdeath and mourning and famine. And she will be utterly burned with fire, for strong is the Lord God who judges her.â
The fall of Babylon is final, absolute, and happens at the end of revelation. I believe this Babylon is a city here in America called New York City, but that is a story for another day. May God bless for reading this until the end. Maranathaâ¦..

What is the relevance of the blowing of the seven trumpets in Revelation 8:2 - 11:19? What does it portend? How are they used? When does it occur? Why do they blow? Please read what it says, 2 And I saw the seven angels who stood before God, and to them were given seven trumpets.
3 And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar, which was before the throne.
4 And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angelâs hand.
5 And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire from the altar, and cast it onto the earth; and there were voices and thunderings and lightnings, and an earthquake.
6 And the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.
7 The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth; and a third part of the trees were burned up, and all green grass was burned up.
8 And the second angel sounded and, as it were, a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea; and a third part of the sea became blood;
9 and a third part of the creatures which were in the sea and had life, died, and a third part of the ships were destroyed.
10 And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as if it were a lamp, and it fell upon a third part of the rivers and upon the fountains of waters;
11 and the name of the star is called Wormwood. And a third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died from the waters, because they were made bitter.
12 And the fourth angel sounded, and a third part of the sun was smitten, and a third part of the moon and a third part of the stars, so that a third part of them was darkened; and a third of the day shone not, and the night likewise.
13 And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, âWoe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth, because of the other voices of the trumpets of the three other angels, which are yet to sound!â
9 And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth; and to him was given the key to the bottomless pit.
2 And he opened the bottomless pit, and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.
3 And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth; and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.
4 And it was commanded to them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree, but only those men who have not the seal of God in their foreheads.
5 And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months; and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion when he striketh a man.
6 And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.
7 And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared for battle; and on their heads were, as it were, crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men.
8 And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions.
9 And they had breastplates like breastplates of iron, and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots with many horses running to battle.
10 And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stingers in their tails; and their power was to hurt men five months.
11 And they had a king over them, the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue his name is Apollyon.
12 One woe is past; and behold, there come two more woes hereafter.
13 And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which stands before God,
14 saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, âLoose the four angels who are bound in the great river Euphrates.â
15 And the four angels were loosed, who had been prepared for an hour and a day and a month and a year, to slay a third part of men.
16 And the number of the army of horsemen was two hundred thousand thousand, and I heard the number of them.
17 And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and they that sat on them had breastplates of fire and of jacinth and brimstone; and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions, and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone.
18 By these three was a third part of men killed by the fire and by the smoke and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths.
19 For their power is in their mouth and in their tails; for their tails were like unto serpents and had heads, and with them they cause hurt.
20 And the rest of the men, who were not killed by these plagues, yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold and silver, and brass and stone and of wood, which can neither see nor hear nor walk;
21 neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.
10 And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud; and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire.
2 And he had in his hand a little book open. And he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth,
3 and cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth. And when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices.
4 And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write, and I heard a voice from Heaven saying unto me, âSeal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not.â
5 And the angel, whom I saw standing upon the sea and upon the earth, lifted up his hand to heaven.
6 And he swore by Him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven and the things that are therein, and the earth and the things that are therein, and the sea and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer,
7 but that in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as He hath declared to His servants the prophets.
8 And the voice which I heard from Heaven spoke unto me again and said, âGo and take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel who standeth upon the sea and upon the earth.â
9 And I went unto the angel and said unto him, âGive me the little book.â And he said unto me, âTake it and eat it up, and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey.â
10 And I took the little book out of the angelâs hand and ate it up, and it was in my mouth sweet as honey; and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.
11 And he said unto me, âThou must prophesy again before many peoples and nations, and tongues and kings.â
11 And there was given me a reed like unto a rod; and the angel stood, saying, âRise, and measure the temple of God and the altar, and them that worship therein.
2 But the court which is outside the temple, leave out, and measure it not, for it is given unto the Gentiles; and the Holy City shall they tread under foot for forty and two months.
3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.â
4 These are the two olive trees and the two candlesticks, standing before the God of the earth.
5 And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth and devoureth their enemies; and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.
6 These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy, and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.
7 And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them and kill them.
8 And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.
9 And they of the people and kindreds, and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and a half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.
10 And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another, because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.
11 But after three days and a half, the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them that saw them.
12 And they heard a great voice from Heaven, saying unto them, âCome up hither!â And they ascended up to Heaven in a cloud, and their enemies beheld them.
13 And that same hour there was a great earthquake, and a tenth part of the city fell; and in the earthquake were slain seven thousand men, and the remnant were seized with fear, and gave glory to the God of Heaven.
14 The second woe is past; and behold, the third woe cometh quickly.
15 And the seventh angel sounded, and there were great voices in Heaven, saying, âThe kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign for ever and ever!â
16 And the four and twenty elders, who sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces and worshiped God,
17 saying, âWe give Thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, who art, and wast, and art to come, because Thou hast taken to Thee Thy great power, and hast reigned.
18 And the nations were angry; and Thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that Thou shouldest give reward unto Thy servants the prophets, and to the saints and them that fear Thy name, small and great, and shouldest destroy them that destroy the earth.â
19 And the temple of God was opened in Heaven; and there was seen in His temple the ark of His testament, and there were lightnings and voices, and thunderings and an earthquake, and great hail.
The Seven Trumpets
So the seven angels blow the seven trumpets of heaven against an earth that has become as it was in the days of Noah, as in the days of Sodom & Gomorrah, and when Joshua and Israel blew the trumpets against Jericho.
It will be observed that the first four are separated from the last three judgments, in that the last three are called woe judgments.
The first trumpet (8:7) presents a judgment that falls upon the earth in which 1/3rd of the earth inhabitants are slain.
The second trumpet (8:8-9) depicts a judgment that falls upon the seas and again 1/3rd of mankind is slain. These two trumpet judgments from God represent unimaginable death to all that still reside upon the earth.
The third trumpet (8:10-11) presents a judgment that falls upon the rivers and fountains of water beneath the earth. It is suggested that living waters are taken away from the remainder of people left on the earth because they believed the lie 2 Thessalonians 2:11 that reads, And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie.
The fourth trumpet (8:12-13) is a judgment coming on the sun, moon, and stars that they would no longer give their light and is a judgment against world rulers.
The fifth judgment that is also the first woe (9:1-12) pictures an individual energized by hell who can let torment of unprecedented proportions loose on what is left of mankind on the earth. These locust described like men are not allowed to slay anyone however, only to torment.
The sixth judgment that is also the second woe (9:13-19) is seen as a great army that is turned loose to march with destructive power across the face of the earth. These two woes suggest there will be two great marching armies, one against Israel and one against the Gentiles, which will destroy 1/3rd of what is left of men on the earth. Since Satanâs weapons against Israel is the Northern confederacy, it may be depicted by the fifth trumpet and Gentile warfare depicted by the sixth.
The seventh trumpet and the third woe judgment (11:15) brings about Christ to the earth and the subsequent destruction of all hostile powers at the conclusion of the battle of Armageddon.
It would seem as though there might be a parallelism in the seven trumpet judgments and the great seven year tribulation. The middle of the tribulation begins with the rise of great military powers that are aligning themselves. Such would correspond to the first trumpet. Former kingdoms are overthrown, that brings death, as in the second trumpet. A great leader will arise in the third trumpet, the Antichrist. His rise will facilitate the overthrow of governments and authority in the fourth trumpet. There will be great military movement in this period. The armies of the Northern confederacy will invade Israel, as in the fifth trumpet, as Gentile powers jockey for position, that causes great destruction, as in the sixth trumpet. This will all be climaxed by Christâs second coming, as seen in the seventh trumpet.
This all means the time is short to repent, be saved and born again my friends. We are only minutes from Midnight when all darkness will come on the earth, be prepared then for the rapture by becoming saved. Maranatha..

Please read what happened to a woman who knew if she got close enough to touch Jesus garment she would be healed. What did Jesus do? How did he help? What did he say? When did the healing take place? These are all questions we would like to know, read on and be blessed.
And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years. She had suffered a great deal under the care of many doctors and had spent all she had, yet instead of getting better she grew worse. When she heard about Jesus, she came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak, because she thought, âIf I just touch his clothes, I will be healed.â Immediately her bleeding stopped and she felt in her body that she was freed from her suffering. At once Jesus realized that power had gone out from him. He turned around in the crowd and asked, âWho touched my clothes?â âYou see the people crowding against you,â his disciples answered, âand yet you can ask, âWho touched me?ââ But Jesus kept looking around to see who had done it. Then the woman, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell at his feet and, trembling with fear, told him the whole truth. He said to her, âDaughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering.â âMark 5:25-34
The story of the woman who was healed of a bleeding disorder is found in the synoptic gospels: Mark 5:25-34, Matthew 9:20-22; Luke 8:43-48. This woman suffered from her disorder for 12 years, which likely meant according to Lev. 15:25-33 that she was considered ritually impure for that length of time. But when she touched Jesus, He did not become impure; the exact opposite happenedâJesusâ purity with the Holy Spirit made her pure. A change in her spirit by believing in Jesus ushered in a healing change in her body, according to the NIV Study Bible.
What we can learn from stories like this in the Bible is that God is able to heal us, and God desires to heal us. If you have been sick for a long time like that woman, you may be thinking what about meâwhy hasnât God healed me? And as someone who has experienced chronic nerve pain for the last 13 years I can relate. Kristen Wetherell, author and writer for Unlocking The Bible, has shared an article with The Gospel Coalition titled âDoes Jesus Want to Heal Me?â She writes,
âWe all have ailments, even if theyâre not physicalâbroken relationships, broken promises, broken dreams. We feel like the hesitant woman on the outskirts of the crowd rather than the one cured by a touch of his garment.
We wonder if Jesus wants to heal us. And since he hasnât, we figure we have our answer.â
Wetherell points us back to the story to look at what Jesus says to the woman. In Mark 5:24 He says, âDaughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering.â Her faith in Jesus healed her spiritually, which is vastly more important than her physical healing, but He also tells her she is free of her physical suffering. The order of what He said matters. Jesus wants us to be healed, and more than our physical healing He wants us to experience spiritual healing. Wetherell cites 1 Peter 2:24,
âHe himself bore our sinsâ in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; âby his wounds you have been healed.â
Jesus cared so much about our healing, our sick and dying souls, He died for usâso that by His sacrifice we can be healed.
There will be sickness, disease, pain, and suffering on this earth because the world we live in right now is fallen and sin still covers every surface. But once Jesus Christ saves us, through faith alone, sin can no longer touch our soulsâit has been eliminated and we have been made pure by the only One who ever lived a pure life on this earth. Wetherell explains,
âJesusâs response to the woman also previews our eternal futureâa final healing through the perfect restoration of body, mind, and soul, when Jesus returns and renews all things. What God has done through miracles past, he will do in our heavenly future.â
Itâs certainly possible that you will receive physical healing on this earth, for God is able to do more than all we can ask or think (Eph 3:20). But it is also possible that you will not receive physical healing until the day you leave this earth and join God in heaven.
We can think of numerous stories in the Bible that portray people waiting on Godâs deliverance, and we can also think of a few where God did not take away pain like Paulâs thorn. The biggest thing we can learn from all of these true stories is that what matters more than the miraculous healing is the personâs trust in God. By trusting and believing in God, He will heal you spiritually even if your physical struggles remain the same.
Sometimes I am tempted not to pray for healing or perseverance of my physical disorder, since God has not taken it away from me. But thatâs not what the Bible tells us to do. We are told to approach God boldly, just as the woman touched Jesusâ robe. We can present our desires and struggles to God in prayer. He hears what we have to say, and He hears our hearts when our lips cannot speak the words. He sees every tear and knows every heartache we experience. Wetherell asks,
âWill we trust him to do whatâs bestâaccording to his wisdom and timing, not ours? And for his glory to be displayed in usâwhether or not our requests are granted?â
To read Kristen Wetherellâs article in itâs entirety please visit TheGospelCoalition.com or UnlockingTheBible.org.
In another article, When God Feels Far Away, Wetherell writes:
âSo when we feel that God has forsaken us, we rely on what we know to be true: Godâs holiness reigns, and he has granted us sure, unending access to his presence by grace through faith, by the blood of his Son.
By faith, may we persevere with hope by running to Godâs Word of truth. May we rely on his reigning holiness and faithful deliverance, despite how we feel. In Godâs perfect timing and by his grace, may we let his truth transform our feelings, that we may sing praise along with David, âGod has heard when I cried to him.ââ
I am humbled at who You are. You are the God who heals not only physically but also spiritually. You are the only One who can purify the soul. I thank you that no matter what kind of pain I experience in this life, I can be assured that my soul is healed forever in You. Because of Your healing I can come boldly to you now in prayer, and I can trust in the life you have given me to live on this earth because you are with me and the Holy Spirit resides in me. I pray for healing for myself and for all those who trust in you and question their suffering. Lord, give us clarity in our suffering that even though we might not understand why, we can understand how we will get through it. Help me to understand that every footstep I take is with you by my side. Holy Spirit convict me to draw closer to you when I am uncertain about the whys of life, and Jesus help me to find rest and peace in you when I feel forgotten. I know that You have not forgotten me, and I know that at the proper time, whether in this life or the next, you will grant me physical healing in addition to the spiritual healing I am so grateful for. For Your Word tells me that You will wipe away every tear and that one day there will be no more death, grief, or pain. I am thankful for each day You have given me, for You are with me wherever I go and whatever I go through. My hope is in You always.
In Your glorious name Jesus, Amen.
"He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more deathâ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.â -Rev. 21:4
Sir this post is for believers that are studied in biblical scripture, it sounds like you are an unbeliever who has not dissected God's word like I have. He has given me the knowledge to discern his wisdom in scripture. I am not saying I am better than you, just saved and born again, ready to meet my savior.

Intro & Conclusion by Pastor Boyd
You sure do open a can of worms when you ask the above question. My father called me from the nursing home right before he died and I told him it was time for him to go be with Jesus. I believe I told him the right thing to do and after I said this my sister Dawn said he died. He had the early stages of Parkinson's and dementia was also coming on; he had missed my mother who had died years earlier and was saved when he passed. Sam Storms is an Amillennial, Calvinistic, charismatic, credo-baptistic, complementarian, Christian Hedonist who loves his wife of 44 years, his two daughters, his four grandchildren, books, baseball, movies, and all things Oklahoma University. In 2008 Sam became Lead Pastor for Preaching and Vision at Bridgeway Church in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. This is his article, what follows is spot on and what I have always believed to be the truth.
There is a loud chorus of voices these days denouncing, in a somewhat condescending way, the long-standing belief among evangelicals that when Christians die they go to heaven. In one sense, this outcry is good and constructive. It is an understandable and much-needed response to the unbiblical gnosticism of some âfundamentalistâ Christians who denigrate material creation, diminish the reality of a future bodily resurrection, and fail to reckon with the centrality in Godâs redemptive purpose of the New Heavens and especially the New Earth.
So, is my answer to the question posed in the title, No? Not quite. My answer is: Immediately, Yes. Eternally, No. Or again, to simplify, when a Christian dies he/she immediately passes into the conscious presence of Christ in heaven. But when the day of resurrection arrives, he/she will be given a new and glorified body in the eternal state which all of Godâs people will live and flourish on the New Earth (of Revelation 21-22).
What weâre talking about is known as the intermediate state, that period and/or experience of the individual believer between (hence, âintermediateâ) the time of physical death and bodily resurrection. The biblical evidence for the intermediate state is unmistakable: see 2 Cor. 5:6-9; Phil. 1:21-24; Luke 16:19-31; Heb. 12:22-24; Rev. 6:9-11 (and perhaps 1 Thess. 4:13-18). Our focus here is 2 Corinthians 5:6-9. But first, a brief word about 2 Corinthians 5:1-5 is in order.
In these verses Paul speaks of his desire to be alive when Christ returns, for then he would not have to die physically and experience the separation of body and spirit, a condition he refers to as being ânakedâ (v. 3) or âunclothed.â Paul's perspective on life and death may therefore be put in this way: It is good to remain alive on this earth to serve Christ (Phil. 1:21a,22a,24-26). On the other hand, it is better to die physically and enter into the presence of Christ (2 Cor. 5:6-8; Phil. 1:21b,23). However, it is by far and away best to be alive when Christ returns, for then we avoid death altogether and are immediately joined with the Lord in our resurrected and glorified bodies.
According to 2 Cor. 5:3, if the believer remains alive until Christ returns she will be found by the Lord clothed with a body (the present, earthly one), and not in a disembodied state. To be without a body is to be ânakedâ and thus in a very important sense unnatural and less than ideal. Clearly, Paul envisaged a state of disembodiment between physical death and the general resurrection (cf. âunclothedâ in v. 4). Verse 4 I take to be an expanded repetition of v. 2.
We now turn our attention to 2 Corinthians 5:6-9. There Paul writes:
âSo we are always of good courage. We know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord, for we walk by faith, not by sight. Yes, we are of good courage, and we would rather be away from the body and at home with the Lord. So whether we are at home or away, we make it our aim to please himâ (2 Cor. 5:6-9).
Note first of all the contrast set forth in vv. 6 and 8. The contrast is not primarily between two modes of human existence, as if one is in the body and one out of the body (although this is a valid contrast); nor is the contrast primarily that between two possible relationships to the Lord: one with the Lord and one away from the Lord (although again this is valid enough in itself). Paul's primary contrast is between two successive spheres of Christian residence or existence: now in the body and then with the Lord. The major point, therefore, is that life now in the body is to be followed immediately by life then with Christ.
IN the body = ABSENCE from the Lord
OUT OF the body = PRESENCE with the Lord
As one must be either in or out of his body (for there is no third alternative), so he must either be absent from or present with the Lord (for there is no third alternative). In 2 Cor. 5:1-5 Paul has shown that physical death means the loss of bodily existence. Here he explains what this entails for the Christian. There are but two possible modes of existence for us: if we are physically alive and in our bodies we are absent from Christ, if we die physically and leave our bodies we are present with Christ. The two experiences are mutually exclusive. Departure from mortal corporeality on earth marks the beginning of residence with the Lord in heaven, that is if you are a believer.
Is the transition immediate? It would appear so, as the following facts bear out: (1) in v. 6 residence in a physical body is contemporaneous with absence from direct presence with Christ, clearly implying that when the former ceases so also does the latter; (2) note the temporal indicators ââwhile we are in the body, we are absent from the Lord;â (3) v.7 has âwalking by faithâ and âwalking by sightâ set over against one another as opposites with no interval between them; when death occurs, faith gives way to sight and hope to fulfillment; (4) that physical death of the believer issues immediately in conscious presence with the Lord is the teaching of Paul in Phil. 1:20-24, âAccording to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death. For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. But if I live in the flesh, this is the fruit of my labour: yet what I shall choose I wot not. For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better: Nevertheless to abide in the flesh is more needful for you.â
Thus to be âat home in the bodyâ = to be in one's homeland; among one's own people, and to be âabsent from the Lordâ = to be out of one's homeland; to be in a foreign country.
It would seem that v. 7 is designed to soften the blow of v. 6b, or to explain in what sense being âinâ the body entails âabsenceâ from Christ. Our absence from Christ is only spatial, not spiritual (cf. Matt. 28:19-20; Col. 1:27; John 17:23,26). While in the body we do not literally see Christ (at least, most of us don't!), but rather walk by faith in the physically absent and unseen Lord. Death brings us into spatial proximity and visible contact with Christ. Thus death, rather than severing our spiritual relationship with Christ, heightens and enhances it! Death brings us into the immediate vision of our Savior and the increased intimacy of fellowship which it entails.
This passage thus stands in direct opposition to the doctrine of soul sleep, or psychopannychia, which says that Christians at death enter a state of complete inactivity and unconsciousness, to be âawakenedâ at Christ's return. What, then, does the NT mean when it refers to death as âsleepâ (see Mt. 27:52; Luke 8:52; Jn. 11:11-13; Acts 7:60; 1 Cor. 7:39; 11:30; 15:6,18; 1 Thess. 4:1)?
Three things, most likely. (1) Sleep implies rest from earthly toil, the cessation of activity in this realm. Thus one is asleep to this world, but alive and âawakeâ in the next. (2) The imagery of sleep is used to describe death because the body does sleep, in a manner of speaking. I.e., it is at rest, without activity or life. But nowhere does the Bible say that the âsoulâ or âspiritâ sleeps or is unconscious. (3) Sleep is used to illustrate that the pain of death as a penalty for sin is gone for the Christian. Death for the believer, rather than something to be feared, is like dozing off for a nap (see esp. Lk. 16:19-31; Mt. 17:1-8; Mark 12:26-27; Rev. 6:9-11).
In summary: the intermediate state for the Christian is immediate transition upon death into the presence of Christ in heaven, during which time we experience holiness (no longer being at war with the flesh, although final glorification awaits at the resurrection), happiness, a heightened sense of consciousness, and knowledge of Christ in its fullest. But the âintermediateâ state is not our âfinalâ or âeternalâ state.
So, do Christians âgo to heavenâ when they die? Yes, but only temporarily, as they await the return of Christ, the resurrection of the body, and eternal life in the New Heavens and New Earth.
This is always what I suspected but I had not done the research to prove it to myself until I read Storms take on the soul. So the way I see it when you die your body and soul separate with your soul going to heaven to be with Jesus. When the rapture happens your body comes out of the grave to be reunited with your soul, then you are changed into the eternal state to be with the Lord forever. Those believers alive at the rapture do not endure such, just change into the eternal state forever. The same for the tribulation saints that come out of the grave at Jesusâs return at the second coming. I hope this was helpful to anyone concerned about the hereafter. May Jesus come quickly. Maranathaâ¦â¦â¦â¦...

The Bible talks of many end-time signs in the sky relating to our Lordâs coming. It speaks of numerous signs on the earth and in the world. It speaks of the condition of the heart of man in these times, both of the saved and the unsaved.
This edition is to inform you, help you, bless you and warn you of the pitfalls and dangers now and in the short time ahead, which are all escalating and intensifying.
Impending, ominous, doom looms large for many, and they canât see it. At the same time, great joy, glory, majesty, honour, triumph and exaltation from our Lord is fast approaching for many.
Signs are to warn us, but also to show us which way to go. Signs are not to be ignored as most of the church does today, thanks to their blind guides. But we must not get the signs wrong either and go off in the wrong direction.
Thankfully we have seen that the Bible signs and prophecies that have already come to pass and been fulfilled, have done so perfectly with not one miss. So we can absolutely trust every word. If we are on the right road, it will be seen and be evident in the hearts of those on the journey.
The hearts of those who are right with God and on the right road will be full of good fruit and their lives will in fact be a banner and a sign to the world as well.
A bad or wrong heart will absolutely get you to see the wrong thing in the signs and go the wrong way, taking others with you.
1 Chronicles 26:16 (Temple Gatekeepers) â...At the West Gate, on the ascending highway you shall have watchmen opposite watchmen.â
Psalm 119:148 âMy eyes are awake through the night watches that I may meditate (know) Your word.â
What is most important is to know and understand that we are to be watchful for all the signs. We are to know the signs in the sky, the signs in the world and in our hearts!
There is a very great danger evident in so many right now. Iâve mentioned it before. It is that too many are putting all their eggs in one basket. Far too many are looking at the coming signs in the sky, specifically the Revelation 12 sign, with tunnel vision.
If the earth and world signs are not running parallel to the Revelation 12 sign, as we approach the time â forget any message in the sky!
I am watching the Revelation 12 sign cautiously. I have not thrown it out, but I see some very real dangers that many are simply ignoring.
Personally, in the past Iâve looked at, and presented you with rapture-time scenarios and possibilities. With every one, Iâve said that they are possibilities and, if memory serves, Iâve also said just what Iâm saying here now: All the ducks must be lined up in a row!
Amazingly, so many in the past have found this or that great secret as to when they think the rapture will be, and held to it right up to the day â but the other main signs have been missing! They all end up with a bit more than egg on the face!
I recently saw a video clip by some fool-Jezebel type woman who claimed that Nibiru would hit the earth this last Christmas day, but it would be okay because the rapture would happen right then too.
The incredible thing was that so many deceived, blind, fools bought right into her satanic garbage.
When something is of our Lord, there will be confirmations in the Bible itself as well as amongst certain types of mature believers. I canât stress how important this is.
Many people are falling into the trap of âprivate, personal interpretation,â relating to many other things, which is not only wrong, but forbidden in 2 Peter 1:20-21.
Look for what finds acceptance and bears witness with mature believers with a track record of stability and endurance. Beware of that which changes long accepted, Bible-proven interpretation. That's not to say a new revelation can't come along, but if it's of God it will be confirmed by the right people.
The Revelation 12 sign dangers:
There are a few big problems with the general interpretation of and application of the Revelation 12 sign, which require a lot of explanation, so I wonât go into it all now.
The biggest issue of all lies in the fact that the âgreat signâ of Revelation 12 may well turn out to be a supernatural sign and event in the sky and have nothing to do with any computer program called Stellarium or any other.
Many say that the Bethlehem star was a comet. I reject that. Many say that the darkness that fell when our Lord was crucified was an eclipse. Since when do eclipses last for nine hours? Both were supernatural events.
People donât like that idea, because it takes them out the picture, and they like to have a natural, physical explanation for everything, so that they can put it to rest in their simple minds.
So, what I am saying is â be careful out there, donât put your entire trust in one thing that may or may not turn out as expected.
I have said and will say again and again that all the other signs must be in place, and then weâve got it â not before or without them all lining up.
The earth signs:
I have mentioned these signs in previous editions, so this is a brief overview of what must be in place at the same time as the sky signs.
By the way, the Bible says âI will not be negligent to remind you always of these things, though you know them...â (2 Peter 1:12) So, repetition and hearing things a few times is a good method of learning!
âA pre-tribulation rapture requires the start of the tribulation period as a new dispensation at the same time. There is no inter-dispensational time period â thatâs biblically impossible.
Therefore we must have some sort of international peace agreement on the table ready for signing. That is a major world-sign. (Daniel 9:27, Daniel 11:21, 1 Thessalonians 5:3)
This coming peace treaty must be new and not some old agreement revived, as many teach. It must be new because it is a seven-year agreement. No other, like the Oslo Accord, or any other, was specifically a seven-year agreement.
All other older peace agreements are null and void because they were never ratified and would have to be re-negotiated, because so much has changed since.
There will be no rapture and no tribulation start without this major world-sign in place, no matter what any sign in the stars or anywhere else points to.
âWe must see the ten-nation European confederacy with an eastern and western leg in place or at least close to being formed. It is required by prophecy soon into the tribulation.
âWe must see the emergence of a one-world, one-currency, and one-religion system. These things donât happen overnight. They are tribulation events, but must be at least in sight, being prepared at the tribulation start.
âWe must see the preparations for the building of the Third Temple on the Temple Mount. It is required at mid-tribulation, so must be in sight well before.
There is very little time left for all of these signs to appear. Yes things can happen fast, but they need to happen very, very fast.
There are numerous other signs that need to be in place too.
Signs in the heart of man:
Proverbs 27:19 â...A manâs heart reveals the man.â
Perhaps the biggest end-time sign in the heart of man is pure deception!
A soft, broken and teachable heart is a pre-condition for seeing correctly and being led into all truth.
The end-time heart signs revealed in the Bible are: People being in love with themselves, in love with money, despisers of the ways of God, superficial, filled with great continuing and steadily worsening deception.
People will be worshipping the gods of Babylon and Baal and all its offshoots. People will ignore, or be ignorant of the word of God, even though itâs more available now than ever before, and is right in front of them!
A big and real end-time sign is more and more people becoming more and more involved in the occult, witchcraft, fortune telling, spiritism, sorcery, and the like. (Deuteronomy 18:9-12).
The Bible is the source of the signs we are interested in. But there are different levels of Bible understanding.
âFirstly there is the dead-letter version, which the Bible itself describes as spirit-less understanding. (2 Corinthians 3:6). This way has produced all the divisions we have in the dead denominational churches.
âThen there is spirit-led and informed understanding and interpretation, which is absolutely necessary. This is where our Lord proclaims that âHe will show you things to come.â (John 16:13).
âThen there is the understanding coming from the living words of the living God speaking now in your own heart, which is only available to those who qualify and meet the conditions.
Job 28:12-28 âWhere can wisdom (of and from God) be found? And where is the place of understanding? Man does not know its value, nor is it found in the land of the living. Behold the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom, and to depart from evil, that is understanding.â
Proverbs 9:10 âThe fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.â
Psalm 25:14 âThe secret counsel of the Lord is with those who fear Him and He will show them His covenant.â
Today we are in a world with no fear of God. The result is ignorance of God, presumption, man-made doctrines and idiots with no revelation knowledge of God.
No one can know God without the fear of God and this has many evidences in your life. In many respects, the fear of God compares to taking up your own cross. Today many have removed the cross and others have modified it to suit themselves.
The cross of self-denial is before all believers. You can take it up or flee it.
Cross-less Christianity is a modern curse and a sign of hearts being far from the living God.
In all of our hearts there is a throne of pride and a cross lying on the ground in front of us. You have to get off your throne and bow down to pick up the cross.
We must go through the soul-agony of loss of all our ideas and idols. We must become detached and removed from our self-will and exaltation. We must be silent before God and shut up, before we can know and speak His revelation-word.
To really encounter the living God is shattering. It breaks you down, so that He can lift you up without all your garbage, presumption, sin and un-holiness.
Job 42:5 âI have heard of You by the hearing of the ear, but now my (spiritual) eye sees You and I abhor myself and repent in dust and ashes.â
We are entering a time of universal darkness, emptiness, barrenness and dryness. But there are those who hunger and thirst for the purity, holiness and righteousness of God. They will be filled.
Self and sin and the worldâs ways is the veil that hides the face of God. Only the cross breaks these enemies in our lives.
Many want to be saved but wonât surrender fully. They end up as twilight Christians half in the shadows. Their sick religion offers plenty and demands nothing.
The truth they have soon erodes away as it must into the mist of this universal darkness and a religious, hazy half-light. It is like lukewarm light! It will poison and kill you!
The more at home you are in this world, the greater your problem and the greater the work you will have to do to die to it.
Many of todayâs âsuccessfulâ preachers are failures and leading others to failure. They teach that a Ferrari is valuable.
In many cases, the problem is not so much the signs or the content of the message, but the messenger! They are not messengers of the cross! Many are superficial frauds, looking for the approval of man. I always automatically reject the messages from these types, without question.
Most times I can tell in the first sentence whether a person is to be switched off or not.
Israel as a signs:
***Isaiah 66:19 âI will set a sign among them (Jews)...they shall declare My glory among the Gentiles.â
The âsignâ in the verse above is the miracle people, the Jews themselves! This sign has other implications as well, which I wonât go into now, except to say that it relates to war of Gog and Magog! ) Iâll share more on this another time.
Here we have a magnificent, far reaching verse, with so many dramatic implications attached to every word!
Do you know that the many fulfilled prophecies relating to Israel is a great sign in itself? (Isaiah 11:12) Israelâs birth, Jerusalemâs restoration, the Second Exodus, the land never to be lost again, and many more have all been fulfilled in our day. What a sign!
But the sign continues to speak! The Jews will be Godâs chief evangelists to the Gentiles in the tribulation period. That means a pre-tribulation rapture. All from a few words in that incredible verse!
A message for the Jews: You are going to return to your Messiah. You will soon see with new eyes. It was written ages ago in Bible prophecy...it will happen. But when you return be careful not to return to the old ways. Return to your Lord who has many new things for you.
Church and Gentiles in general, know that to stand with and for Israel and the Jewish people is to be Godâs own personal, close friend!
Psalm 60:11 âGive us help from trouble, for vain is the help of man. Through God we will do valiantly, for it is He who shall tread down our enemies.â
1 Samuel 2:9 âThe Lord will guard the feet of His saints, but the wicked will be silent in darkness. For by strength no man shall prevail.â
Israel, Your God has been with you through the ages, even when you turned against Him, and were blinded as a result. But your eyes even now, are opening to your soon coming Jewish Messiah. Many forces, led by Satan, even some which you may think are too big for you to handle, will come against you. But fear not!
Look at that verse above again. âBy (human) strength no man shall prevail against you. You have already won, so to speak! You are already the brothers and sisters of all Christian Zionists, who love you and stand with you.
My Jewish friends, you are Godâs great sign in this world, of His soon return in judgement and love.
Anti-Semitism and its religious twin, replacement theology, are intensifying today. It is such a huge problem for its adherents because our Lord and Saviour is Jewish! That makes salvation a real obstacle for them. So, the anti-Semitic world is really shooting themselves in the head!
On the eve of destruction, most church ministers are playing ostrich, ostrich and wouldnât dare pull their wolf-heads out of the sand to teach, inform and warn their blind sheep about the soon coming disasters.
Pack up, look up, for we are going up in the rapture soon!
By Pastor Gary Boyd
So many subjects so little time. As hot items to write about raise their ugly heads I realize there are four major implications that are coming to the forefront on the world scene that is going to have a negative effect on the human race. This is something I need agreement on with my readers. Tell me what you think please.
Devil Worship - Slavery - Pedophilia - Freemasons
God condemns devil worship in every since as he states in his holy word, I am the LORD thy God and you shall have no other gods before me, no graven images or likenesses, and you should not blaspheme or take the LORD's name in vain. When you worship demons and devils and Satan himself practicing sorcery you are putting yourself in danger of being condemned forever into a fiery hell where there is no coming back.
Sorcery is defined as Black Magic; enchantment; witchcraft; divination by the assistance of evil spirits, or the power of commanding evil spirits. To do so puts you in danger of being possessed by evil spirits. Read the book by Russ Dizdar âThe Black Awakening.â In it he speaks of the many demon possessions in these trying times. So many in fact the Catholic Church is looking for exorcists to assist in the cleansing of the many who are possessed. The authorâs quote:
''In this twilight of human history darkness burns its black flame. Soon it will all erupt and fear will fly as the bloodshed begins. The 'Black Awakening' will occur! For them, those who served this long cold secret it has to, it's the only way to give the world a desperate reason. A willing but painful reason for the need of a new world order and of a leader who will rule with a power that only the ancients felt.'' As you might well deduce this New World Order they have been preaching for many years is a Satanic Order that wants to rule the world without God.
The worship of devils, demons, Satan, etc. and performing sorcery are clearly identified as a worldwide problem during the Tribulation period
as stated in Rev. 9:20-21, âAnd the rest of the men, who were not killed by these plagues, yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold and silver, and brass and stone and of wood, which can neither see nor hear nor walk;neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.â
Multitudes of witches, wizards and others will refuse to repent of their sins because they have too often rejected the Word of God and their black hearts have become hardened.
Concerning witchcraft, it seems that large numbers of witches and others have decided to start casting spells on Pres. Donald Trump every night of a declining crescent moon until he is driven out of office. Christians need to counteract this by praying for President Trump to be protected by Godâs guardian angels from on high.
Demons and unclean spirits operate in the unseen world, but they are real and they can cause havoc on earth as the Lord tells us in 1 Tim. 4:1, âNow the Spirit speaketh expressly that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils, speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their conscience seared with a hot ironâ
This is a quote from Tony Maddox CNN reporter:
âObviously there is no precise figure, but the International Labor Organization and respected abolitionists like Kevin Bales and Siddharth Kara put the global number of slaves at between 10-30 million worldwide. At a minimum, 10 million.
Driving the global people trading business is ruthless greed, vast returns on investment and crucially, government ineffectiveness. The same as most criminal enterprises.
And the numbers involved are extraordinary.
The United Nations estimates the total market value of human trafficking at 32 billion U.S. dollars. In Europe, criminals are pocketing around $2.5 billion per year through sexual exploitation and forced labor.
But letâs remember the commodity here is not drugs or contraband; it is human beings. And usually the most vulnerable in society.
Those unable to defend themselves, those who innocently trust the intentions of others, those who can easily be made to disappear.
The cruelty and inhumanity of those who would profit from such a crime is truly shocking.â
This only shows the desperate times we are living in and the reason to turn the world back to God.
Slavery and human trafficking are businesses that will tank when the city of Babylon is destroyed by fire in one hour near the end of the Tribulation period. The loss of sales will cause the merchants of the earth to weep and mourn as the Lord tells us in Rev. 18:11-13, âAnd the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her, for no man buyeth their merchandise any more:The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls; and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet; all scented wood, all manner of vessels of ivory and most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble; and cinnamon, and perfumes, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat; and cattle, and sheep, and horses, and chariots; and slaves, and the souls of men.â
A close look at slavery by the FBI calls it the third largest criminal activity in the world. The UN estimates that there are more than 20 million victims in the world.
President Trump said it is happening in the U.S. About 5,500 cases were reported in the U.S. in 2016. Statistics show that it is worse in California than any other state because of the huge influx of illegals.
Pres. Trumpâs daughter Ivanka got interested in it as a womanâs issue. She decided to get involved and she has influenced her father to instruct several federal agencies to start investigating it. She even got him to pledge more resources to deal with it.
In Websterâs dictionary Pedophilia is a sexual perversion in which children are the preferred sexual object; specifically : a psychological disorder in which an adult has sexual fantasies about or engages in sexual acts with a prepubescent child.
It has raised its ugly head in the Catholic Church time and again over the last decades, only to be squashed by moving the priests to another parrish. A report from the Daily Mail says, âPope Francis has revealed that around one in every 50 Catholic priests is a paedophile.
Condemning the issue as a âleprosyâ which infects the Church, the Pontiff was yesterday reported as claiming that even bishops and cardinals are among the â2 per centâ carrying out child abuse.â
He also said that many more in the Church are guilty of covering it up, adding: âThis state of affairs is intolerable.â Damning reports by the UN this year have accused the Vatican of âsystematicallyâ adopting policies that allowed priests to rape and molest thousands of children over decades, failing to report allegations to the authorities and transferring offenders to new dioceses where they could abuse again.
In a wide-ranging interview with the Italian newspaper La Repubblica yesterday, Francis denounced the corruption of children as âthe most terrible and unclean thing imaginableâ and vowed to âconfront it with the seriousness it demands.â
In Washington DC an FBI whistleblower has confirmed that 30 politicians and 40 other individuals are to be arrested in Washington D.C. and New York City in connection with the âPizzagateâ pedophile ring, and more suspects are under investigation as the investigation continues âbranching out in unexpected directions.â
The insider at the Federal Bureau of Investigation claims that the FBI has just finished submitting paperwork to the Department of Justice in preparation for the âPizzagateâ arrests which will begin soon. Mr. Sessions has been briefed on the far-reaching investigation and all of the evidence three weeks ago.
Investigators say they have held files on high-ranking politicians for years. However, they didnât find a concrete lead until November 2016, when they monitored three suspects after they were allegedly caught using coded language in an internet forum created by the FBI to trap pedophiles.
The police Pizzagate investigation then branched out from there, eventually uncovering a tangled web of crime thriving in Washington D.C.âs corridors of power. Picking up children is as easy as sitting down in a Dc restaurant.
âIâve never been involved in an investigation that kept branching out in so many unexpected directions,â he said.
This sick perversion reminds me of the days of Sodom & Gomorrah, we know what God thought of that right?
At one end lies the Washington Monument, at the opposite end is the Capitol Building. For more than two hundred years, the monuments of the National Mall in Washington, D.C., have stood proudly by day in tribute to Americaâs past.
But by night they whisper a warning about the nationâs future.
Classified documents buried inside the National Archives reveal that three key national monuments, the White House, the FDR Memorial (opening 1997) and the proposed World War II Veterans Memorial, are astronomically aligned to the belt stars of the Orion constellation.
Each unique structure was or will be built during a different epoch in American history. But the master site plan for their construction, for the entire city originally called âWashingtonople,â was designed in 1790 by Pierre-Charles LâEnfant, a French architect and Freemason handpicked by George Washington, himself a Freemason.
Furthermore, the terrestrial monuments and their celestial counterparts are set to lock for the first time in 26,000 years, heralding an epic event foreseen by Americaâs Founding Fathers and ignored by todayâs citizens at their peril.
Are the monuments of the National Mall trying to tell us something? Is history about to repeat itself? And, if so, how?
There is a wild ride through history and science coming as we unlock the ancient prophecies encoded into the architecture of Americaâs monuments.
But what is the true meaning of the 193 Masonic stones that line the interior of the Washington Monument, and whatâs really in store during the monuments impending years-long renovation?
What lies behind the mysterious Masonic stone recently discovered at the end of a previously unexplored tunnel deep beneath the Capitol Building? And does America have a date with destiny, a date thatâs just around the corner?
Land of the Freemasons
Founded in England during the eighteenth century, the modern Masonic order has often figured in conspiracy theories as a secret cabal that has influenced or controlled history. Thatâs due in no small part to its unknown ancient origins, secret rituals, passwords and other arcania.
What do the Freemasons really stand for? Hard to say these days, but during the Enlightenment its key ideals were tolerance and political liberty. Which explains why, by the time of the American Revolution, nearly 150 lodges existed throughout the colonies.
It is not the intent of this paper to denigrate or deify the Freemasons (especially since some of them, as this paper will shortly prove, are most likely members of the federal commission reviewing this research).
Rather, this section seeks merely to frame the historical mindset of the architects of Washingtonople circa 1790, namely Washington and LâEnfant, two of the most prominent Freemasons of their day.
Letâs begin by quoting from what many consider to be the absolute authority on Freemasonry, which claims the Masons worship "all the gods of the Ancient Mysteries," specifically "the Sun, the Moon, and other bright luminaries of Heaven."
The Sun was figuratively said "to die and be born again" at the Winter Solstice, and the Masons "personified the Sun and worshipped him under the name of Osiris."
Another old and venerated Masonic book takes pains to prove that Freemasonry extends well before 1717, all the way back to the Ancient Egyptian Mysteries. An entire chapter titled "Sun Worship" offers a detailed account of the veneration the ancient Egyptians gave the Sun.
Another chapter presents the "mythical story of Osiris," because it "formed not only the basis of the Ancient Egyptian Mysteries" but of Freemasonry as well.
Nobody really knows just how far back in history the Freemasons go. As early as the 12th century, the Vaticanâs Code of Canon Law prohibited church followers from joining âMasonic sects or any other similar associations which plot against the church.â
Today, more than 6 million Americans represent nearly 75% of the total Freemason membership. Known chiefly as a charitable âcountry clubâ network, a typical Masonic lodge has more in common with Fred Flintstoneâs âMoose Lodgeâ than an evil cabal. But its traditions of secrecy and rituals persist, along with the considerable pains the movement takes to trace its origins back to antiquity through Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry and Norman Frederick de Clifford, Egypt: The Cradle of Freemasonry.
These Freemason references to Osiris are key, because the celestial counterpart of Osiris is the constellation of Orion. And it is the three belt stars of Orion to which three monuments of LâEnfantâs original vision for the National Mall are aligned.
More important, as this paper will conclude, three of the terrestrial landmarks of the National Mall will "lock" with these three belt stars of Orion at a "Doomsday" date predetermined by the Founding Fathers.
By following the intricate "map" the Founding Fathers left us, both above and below the grounds of the National Mall, we will be able to calculate the date of convergence.
Knowledge of that date will allow us to deduce its celestial significance and meaning, thus giving us the most of what precious little time there is to prepare ourselves and our nation for what lies ahead.
What lies ahead may well be the alignment of planets on September 23rd of this year, that will allow your rapture to heaven, please listen carefully to my friend in Christ Scottie Clark https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=91F_EseiPkU
What the Satanic world is planning for that date is a deception for that very time, a made up reason for why the Christians have just left the planet.This day exposes the deception in America, perpetrated by our government, our values, and even by the false church. Jesus prophesied in Matthew that the cardinal indicator of the terminal generation would be deception. It's time to counterattack Satan and expose his lies. It's time to take America back to biblical principles. It is time now to take America back and point her back to God.
By Pastor Gary Boyd
It seems many do not understand nor want to get the idea of Jesus coming in the Rapture for His true Church. Meaning the Church born at Pentecost, gestated for 2000 years and is about to be called home in the ensuing Rapture has always been what the true Church has indeed craved. The living in Christ will be called up to heaven at the last trump as the Rapture is coming very soonâas the world sinks into depravity, chaos, and confusion.
In many New Testament passages the relation between Christ and his true Church is revealed by the use of the figures of the Bridegroom (Jesus) and the Bride (Church). Revelation 19:7-8 states, âLet us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready. And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.â
At the translation of the Church, meaning when we are changed into the eternal state, Christ is appearing as a Bridegroom to take his Bride unto Himself, so that the relationship that was pledged might be consummated so that the two might become one.
The time of the marriage is revealed in Scripture as falling between the translation (eternal state) of the Church and the Second Coming. Prior to the Rapture the Church is still anticipating this union. According to Revelation 19:7 this marriage has taken place at the time of the Second Coming, the end of the Tribulation seven years later. The declaration is: âthe marriage of the lamb has come.â
This marriage is seen to follow the events of the Bema Seat of Christ, inasmuch as when the wife appears (Church) she appears in the ârighteousness of the saintsâ (Revelation 19:8), which can only refer to those things that have been accepted at the judgment seat of Christ. Thus the marriage itself must be placed between the judgment seat and the Second Coming.
The place of the marriage can only be in heaven. Inasmuch as this follows the judgment seat of Christ, which has shown to be in the heavenlies and it is in the air when the Church comes when the Lord returns Revelation 19:14, â And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses.â The marriage must then take place in heaven. No other place would fit a heavenly people. âFor our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christâ (Phil. 3:20).
The participants in the marriage are Christ (Lamb) and the true Church (Those who are alive at the Rapture). Read Daniel 12:1-3, a prophecy of the end-times:
âAnd at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince who standeth for the children of thy people; and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book. And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. And]they that are wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.â
So the resurrection of Israel and the Old Testament saints will not take place until the Second Coming of Christ. Revelation 20:4-6 makes it perfectly clear that Tribulation saints will not be resurrected until that time also.
The Saints Reign with Christ 1,000 Years
âAnd I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. But the rest of the dead did not live again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand yearsâ (Rev. 20:4-6).
While it would be impossible to eliminate these groups from the place of observers, they can not be in the position of participants in the event itself.
The Difference Between the Marriage of Christ and the Marriage Supper:
In this connection it seems necessary to distinguish between the marriage of the Lamb and the marriage supper. The Marriage of the lamb takes place in heaven while the marriage supper involves Israel and takes place on earth.
The Parable of the Wedding Feast (Matthew 22:1-14)
âAnd Jesus answered and spoke to them again by parables and said: âThe kingdom of heaven is like a certain king who arranged a marriage for his son, and sent out his servants to call those who were invited to the wedding; and they were not willing to come. Again, he sent out other servants, saying, âTell those who are invited, See, I have prepared my dinner; my oxen and fatted cattle are killed, and all things are ready. Come to the wedding.â
But they made light of it and went their ways, one to his own farm, another to his business. And the rest seized his servants, treated them spitefully, and killed them. But when the king heard about it, he was furious. And he sent out his armies, destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city. Then he said to his servants, âThe wedding is ready, but those who were invited were not worthy. Therefore go into the highways, and as many as you find, invite to the wedding.â So those servants went out into the highways and gathered together all whom they found, both bad and good. And the wedding hall was filled with guests.
But when the king came in to see the guests, he saw a man there who did not have on a wedding garment. So he said to him, âFriend, how did you come in here without a wedding garment?â And he was speechless. Then the king said to the servants, âBind him hand and foot, take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. For many are called, but few are chosen.ââ
The wedding supper, then is, a parabolic picture of the entire millennial age, to which Israel will be invited in the Tribulation period. That invitation many will reject and so they will be cast out. Many will accept and be received in. Because of the rejection the invitation will likewise go to the Gentiles so than many of them will be included. Israel, at the Second Coming, will be waiting for Christ to come from the wedding ceremony and invite them to the wedding supper, at which time the bridegroom will introduce his bride to his friends. Read Matthew 25:1-13:
The Parable of the Wise and Foolish Virgins
âThen the kingdom of heaven shall be likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. Now five of them were wise, and five were foolish. Those who were foolish took their lamps and took no oil with them, but the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. But while the bridegroom was delayed, they all slumbered and slept.
And at midnight a cry was heard: âBehold, the bridegroom is coming; go out to meet him!â Then all those virgins arose and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said to the wise, âGive us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.â
But the wise answered, saying, âNo, lest there should not be enough for us and you; but go rather to those who sell, and buy for yourselves.â And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding; and the door was shut. Afterward the other virgins came also, saying, âLord, Lord, open to us!â But he answered and said, âAssuredly, I say to you, I do not know you.â Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming.â
In review, the marriage of the Lamb is that event in the heavenlies in which the Church is eternally united to Christ. The marriage feast is the Millennium to which Jews and Gentiles will be invited that takes place on the earth during which time the Bridegroom is honored through the display of the Bride to all his friends who are assembled there.
The Church, which was Godâs plan for the current age, is now seen to have been translated to the eternal state, resurrected, presented to the Son by the Father, and had become the object through which the eternal glory of God is manifested forever. The present age will thus witness the inception, development, and completion, of Godâs purpose in âtaking outâ a people for his name. Read Acts 15:14, âSimon has declared how God at the first visited the Gentiles to take out of them a people for His name.â
May God bless you for reading this to the end.
Researched by Pastor Gary Boyd
What is it about Jesus coming in the rapture that infuriates so many and it seems most are in the Church! It says in scripture we are to go out and spread the Gospel which means good news, isnât Jesus coming for his own in the rapture good news? Would you rather be left here to grovel for survival in Satan's world? To be murdered in cold blood if you do not kowtow to the new world order. Recently Melania Trump said the Lordâs prayer in a speech and the blowback was simply chilling. Are we so far gone as a nation that we cannot even mention Godâs name anymore?
Devil an Influence
The Pre-Tribulation Rapture is one of the most hated, scorned and mocked subjects one could address in the world today. Why? Well because I think âIt hits a nerve with Satan.â I believe that statement rests on the very pulse of the problem.
Shockingly, even in the Christian community, anticipation of the Rapture is often dismissed as a frivolous, useless waste of time. Often, those who study and share prophecy are mocked as thrill seekers and failures in sharing the gospel.
Iâll grant you that the gospel is sharing the good news of available salvation to all who come to Jesus Christ in genuine belief. It is the good news of being born again spiritually into the family of God by coming to the Father through His only begotten Son, the only way to the Father by the way. This is wonderful news to any who will listen and accept the message, but isnât Jesusâ return for us also good news if you are a Christian?
Why would God dedicate 27% of the Bible to prophecy, if prophecy isnât important? Why would Jesus speak so much about His return, if it werenât important? Some will say that He never spoke of the Rapture of the Church, but I disagree and will come back to that later.
Many believe that those of us who believe in the Pre-Tribulation Rapture are escapists. We just want to escape the horrors of the Tribulation, so we naively believe that weâll be ushered out before Godâs wrath begins. For my part, I agree with them, except for the ânaivetÃ©â part. I would have to say that I am an escapist. I want nothing to do with the Tribulation and Iâm thankful beyond expression that Jesus will remove His bride from this earth before He allows one day of the seven-year Tribulation to begin.
So if Iâm convinced that Iâm out of here at the Rapture, why do I continue to bring it up? I donât have a worry in the world about going through the Tribulation, so why should I even mention it? Iâm safe. Iâm okay. Hereâs the thing; if you donât know Jesus as your Savior, youâre not safe. Youâre not okay. Unless you die beforehand, you will experience every horrible moment of the Tribulation, and that is why so many of us keep bringing it up. We want you to go with us in the Rapture, and not suffer the wrath of God during the Tribulation. If God is love then we as Christians should reflect that, to love your fellow man is our calling.
Even though I have no idea of when the Rapture will occur, I know it will. Iâve always felt it would occur in my lifetime, but it may not. Thatâs okay. Iâll still be coming back with Jesus to get you (if you are part of the bride) and my new heavenly body in the eternal state.
Folks, the rapture of the true Church, the bride of Christ, is just as real as the air we breathe, and it will occur prior to the Tribulation period. You can believe it or reject it. My prayer for you is that you first of all come to know Jesus as your Savior and Lord, then secondly that your interest in His return for us will be increased.
Satan the Destroyer
Satan hates the message of the Rapture and he hates mankind. God created man in His own image and gave him free choice. We, the Church, will one day rule over the angels. Those who belong to God through His only begotten Son have been given a higher position than even the angels. Satan hates everything about that and curses God because of it.
Some say that the Second Coming of Christ is in two parts; (1) the Rapture before the Tribulation, and (2) His return at the end of the Tribulation. I agree, but I see the Rapture more so as Jesus scooping us His bride out of the way of danger. Just as you would scoop a small child out of the way of a charging bull, Jesus quickly removes us from harmâs way, the Tribulation, a time of great destruction on the earth.
âThen we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.â (1 Thessalonians 4:17)
The Greek word for âcaught upâ is harpazo and it means;
â¢ To seize, carry off by force
â¢ To seize on, claim for oneâs self eagerly
â¢ To snatch out or away
Satan would like to grab the bride of Christ and tie her to the railroad tracks, but Jesus seizes her and carries her off by force, eagerly claiming her as His own and saving her from the train of wrath roaring down the tracks of judgment. The bridegroom will remove His bride from harmâs way before He allows His wrath to fall upon His enemies, and His number one enemy is Satan. Satan thinks he is meeting God at the OK Corral, but he is preparing to meet God at Boot Hill.
Hell on Earth is the Tribulation
Iâve often heard people say something like, âThis is hell on earth,â or âIâm suffering hell on earth.â No my friends, if anything comes close to hell on earth, it can only be those seven years of Tribulation called the âtime of Jacobâs troubleâ or âDanielâs seventieth week.â That â¦ will be hell on earth, but even then, Godâs grace will allow those to be saved who will.
Jesusâ first coming was nearly 2,000 years ago when He came to earth to go to the cross and suffer as the sacrificial lamb. His Church began at Pentecost and was in gestation for 2000 years until the time of Grace is over and we are plucked out of harmâs way. His second coming to earth will be not be as a lamb but as the lion of Judah. He will draw the apple of His eye, Israel, back to Himself, while He pours out His wrath upon a fallen world. Many will be saved during the Tribulation. Many more will suffer terribly and die, and then face the final judgment of God at the White Throne.
I believe the Apostle Paul is emphasizing the Rapture and the Second Coming in his letter to Titus.
âLooking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Savior, Jesus Christ.â (Titus 2:13)
The âblessed hopeâ of the bride of Christ is the Rapture. Christ âglorious appearingâ is the Second Coming.
Differences in Rapture and the Second Coming
There are too many differences in the Rapture and the Second Coming for them to be the same event. Consider just a few.
Rapture: Christ comes for the Church (John 14:1-3; 1 Thessalonians 4:14-17)
2nd Coming: Christ returns with the Church (Colossians 3:4; 1 Thessalonians 3:13; Jude 14; Revelation 19:14)

2nd Coming: For the redeemed of Israel & the Gentiles (Matthew 25:31-46; Romans 11:25-27)
Rapture: Christ does not come on a white horse
2nd Coming: Christ comes on a white horse (Revelation 19:11)
Rapture: A resurrection of those who have died in Christ (1 Corinthians 15:51-57; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18)
2nd Coming: No resurrection (Zechariah 12:10; 14:4-5; Revelation 1:7; 19:11-21)
The Church is not appointed to Godâs wrath (1 Thessalonians 5:9)
The Church has been promised by Jesus to be kept from the hour of temptation; i.e. the Tribulation (Revelation 3:10)
Something else to consider during the Tribulation is that God will use 144,000 Jewish evangelists, two special witnesses (possibly Moses and Elijah) and an angel from Heaven as witnesses. The Church will no longer spread the gospel since it will be in Heaven with Christ. However, Iâm sure that those who are saved during the Tribulation will witness, but at great peril.
I mentioned earlier that Jesus does refer to the Rapture. This can be noted in John 14:1-3 when He tells the Church, represented by the disciples, that He will return for us and take us back to be with Him.
Compare Matthew 24:36-39 with Matthew 24:27-31 and Luke 21:25-28. There can be no way these are the same event in my opinion. Matthew 24:27-31 and Luke 21:25-28 are pointing to the Second Coming of Christ at the end of the Tribulation, but Matthew 24:36-39 is pointing to the rapture of the Church (the bride of Christ).
In Matthew 24:36-39 the world seems to be normal, but there is nothing normal about all that takes place in Matthew 24:27-31 and Luke 21:25-28.
I have no doubt that we are right on schedule with Godâs plans to end the Church age, restore Israel, and judge Her enemies. In my opinion, God is closer than we may think in ending the spiritual war that has been going on now for several millennia.
It is my opinion that our Lord will soon remove His own and begin the final count-down to the end. I believe this is the reason that so many have been called as watchmen on the wall to instill in us the urgency of looking for His soon return.
âBehold, I come quickly. Blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book.â (Revelation 22:7)
âAnd, behold, I come quickly, and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.â Revelation (22:12-13)
âI, Jesus, have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.â (Revelation 22:16)
âHe who testifieth these things saith, Surely, I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.â (Revelation 22:20)
Signs of moral and spiritual decay are all around us as Satan and his minions have been given greater power on earth than ever before. You can see it in Hollywood with their sick movies depicting every kind of perversion there is, the Illuminati reeks of the devil, elitists flock to the Bohemian Grove every summer to worship Molech, pedophilia has been mainstreamed, our school children are being taught to worship Allah, and the level of hate has been kicked up a notch since Trump was elected. The Pope is saying there is more than one way to God and Islam is a religion of peace. The pacific ocean is being radiated along with all life in it as Fukushima heats up. France has been thrown to the dogs and cannot defend there own people as the whole world is in chaos and confusion. I ask you now, who is the author of chaos and confusion?
Get yourself saved before it is too late, the world is moving at a quickened pace as the end of days stares us in the face. I ask where do you want to spend eternity? Maranathaâ¦â¦â¦.

A reader of my articles wrote to me today. She sent a link to a story that she said I must read. When I first read the story, I knew that I would need to vet this thoroughly. At first I thought it might be fake news â but itâs not. Itâs real and itâs satanic, and I pray that many Christians will read this and will pray against the forces of darkness and evil like they have never prayed before.
It seems that Melania Trumpâs reciting The Lordâs Prayer at the rally in Florida sent shock waves throughout the world, but it especially shocked witches and Wiccans and all those who serve Satan. These witches have banded together and even have a schedule in which they intend to âcurseâ President Trump. They plan to do this until our president is âtakenâ out of the White House.
Even the huffingtonpost.com is covering this:
Witches Plan To Cast Mass Spell Against Donald Trump
The key ingredient to the ritual: An unflattering photo of the president.
Donald Trumpâs presidency has cast a pall over the nation, so now witches are casting a spell against him.
A document making its rounds among the witch community is asking people who practice the craft to perform a monthly binding ritual until the president is removed from office.
In order to work, the mass spell must be performed at midnight EST on every waning crescent moon.
The first one is happening on Friday and will be followed by similar spell cast events on March 26, April 24 and May 23 and beyond.
Unless, of course, Trump is cast out of office before then.
Michael M. Hughes, who writes about the paranormal, posted the spell at ExtraNewsFeed last week.He stressed that a binding spell is different than a curse or hex.
âItâs a restraint, not harm,â Hughes told The Huffington Post. âI see it as self-defense.â
Hughes said he heard that two separate witch groups were planning the spells and asked if he could take it to a wider audience.
The spell instructions have gone viral, and there is a group on Facebook dedicated to answering all the questions people may have.
Performing the spell takes a good deal of dedication, including amassing the following:
Unflattering photo of Trump
Tower tarot card
Tiny stub of an orange candle or orange carrot
A pin or small nail (to inscribe candle)
White candle (any size), representing the element of Fire
Small bowl of water, representing elemental Water
Small bowl of salt, representing elemental Earth
Feather (any), representing the element of Air
Matches or lighter
Ashtray or dish of sand
Practitioners are supposed to prepare for by writing âDonald J. Trumpâ on the orange candle stub with a pin or nail. They then arrange the other items in a circle and lean the Tower card against something so that itâs standing up.
Hughes suggests reading the 23rd Psalm aloud before beginning the spell by lighting a white candle.
Remember that the devil used the Word of God against our Lord in the Wilderness! He admits the spell has a satirical element, but insists that âdoesnât invalidate it.â
âIâm OK with people calling it a stunt,â he said. âThe spell can still be effective. I think itâs already working. Some Christian groups are calling for a day of prayer to counteract the spell. Thatâs magic, right there. When people do a ritual, thatâs changing consciousness.â
No, that is not magic â that is praying to our Father in heaven.
As satisfying as a mass spell might seem for Trump detractors, proving it has an effect is another thing altogether.
After all, any bad luck Trump experiences after the spell can be attributed to the spell without being disproven.
âIf people feel more empowered and less beaten down, thatâs valid,â he said.
There may be readers of this article who think that this is a joke. Itâs no joke, brethren. Witches are real and they serve their master, Satan. The article states this:
âThe first one (curse) is happening on Friday and will be followed by similar spell cast events on March 26, April 24 and May 23 and beyond.â
So the first âspellâ is being cast tomorrow, Friday the 24th.
As the body of Christ, those of us who know about these satanic curses which are to be cast â we need to corporately pray this:
Heavenly Father, in the name of your Son Jesus, we bind and break all witchcraft, curses, spells, and all powers associated with it directed against President Trump and his family. Through the blood of the Lamb, we destroy the works of every witch, warlock, wizard, sorcerer, and all other powers of darkness who are planning curses against our president.
Through the Blood of Jesus, we break their powers including the influences of witchcraft, evil powers, spells, hexes, vexes, voodoo, roots, potions, or any such things off of President Trump and his family.
Through the Blood of Jesus Christ, we also rebuke, bind up and destroy all the spirit-guides, helps, and shields of these workers of evil, and leave them without any strengths â stripped of their evil powers and influence.
We pray this in the name above every name, Jesus Christ. Amen.
PLEASE take this seriously. Believe me, I never thought that I would write an article such as this. But Iâm grateful that my friend sent me the story and that it is now all over the internet, so we know it is true.
Our prayers will break these curses from Satan. Write the dates of the witchcraft curses on your calendars and pray the prayer above many times during those days.
Come Lord Jesus. Come quickly!
