“No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. .. Therefore, keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come.” .. Matthew 24:36, 42 ……

Are you one who is thinking that maybe the world is going to end tomorrow, September 23rd? .. There is a lot of murmuring – and even fears – among some who believe this date will usher in events of ‘great prophetic significance.’ .. Needless to say, as a ‘watchmen’ of the Bible’s prophetic teachings, I’ve looked into this specific proclamation to some extent … enough to tell me that I believe it is just another date-setting fiasco of which only hurts the credibility of those who try & stay true .. and rational .. concerning biblical prophecy. ..

Cutting to the chase, this specific September 23rd claim is based upon a certain astrological configuration which somehow has been ‘matched up’ with the Revelation 12:1-2 prophecy. .. Trying to be as objective as possible, I looked into it quite extensively, but could not come to an agreement of any sort with these folks. .. And once again, when tomorrow (Sept. 23) comes and goes, I believe the scoffers & doubters will come out of the woodwork & bash us believers once again. …

Of more interest to me of late is some of the Jewish Rabbis prophesies & prognostications concerning the recent August 21st eclipse. .. As an example, here’s an 1894 AD prophecy from Rabbi Benyamin which stated .. “When a solar eclipse occurs at the beginning of the Hebrew month of Elul, it is a bad sign for other nations, bringing great damage to the Kings of the East, and bringing great storms.” .. Just to note, this latest total solar eclipse which occurred over the United States DID begin exactly on the 1st day of the Hebrew month of Elul! .. Since that time what have we seen? .. Hurricanes Harvey & Irma as well as rapidly escalating tensions & threats from North Korea, which certainly can be considered as one of the Kings of the East! ..

Now lets add another one … Several more modern-day Rabbis are claiming that because this recent eclipse took place on the 1st day of their Jewish month of Elul, which kicks off their 40-day period of fasting & repentance & culminates on September 29th, it would bring a time of great distress for America as this is where the eclipse took place. .. Once again, what has America seen of late? .. The previously mentioned hurricanes as well as raging wildfires in the west, drought in the southeast & midwest, unprecedented hailstorms in several states, record-breaking heat, again in the west, rapidly rise social division of which many are now saying this nation cannot ever fully recover from, antibiotic resistant diseases on the increase … and more & more! .. One certainly cannot totally ignore what is taking place all around us. .. Even secular news outlets are crying out with headlines like “The World Has Gone Nuts” plus more & more usage of words like ‘apocalyptic’ & ‘biblical.’ …

It’s obvious to even those with an IQ above 12 that something is just not right out there. .. And then of course, along come the date-setters & prognosticators grabbing onto the moment to capitalize on it all. .. Putting that aside, these increasingly turbulent times DO bring an opportunity for those of us who ‘know’ to witness & share the truth of Jesus Christ & the prophets’ teachings concerning these times .. but … we MUST NOT go off the deep end & grab onto things that we cannot substantiate beyond a shadow of a doubt  without a 100% scriptural backing! .. Just like the opening verses foretold, Jesus Himself tells us that even He doesn’t know the exact date as to when the Father will decide to intervene & clean upon this mess we’ve made. .. Simply, setting an exact date is NOT scriptural & therefore not credible. … Having said that, we will most likely survive tomorrow. ..

As per the Rabbis’ prophesies concerning this 40-day period of Aug. 21-Sept. 29, America has already experienced some difficult times, and if the Lord continues to tarry, I fully believe tough times will continue for this nation because of our near-total removal of God from our society, not to mention the utter moral collapse. .. Only prayer to the one & only true God & revival can change the ultimate, soon-coming disastrous outcome. ..

Next week (that’s if we are still here) I will share with you, Lord willing, the end-time signs that we can fully substantiate through scripture. .. No speculation & no dates, OK? .. Jesus teaches us that even though we don’t know the exact time of His coming, we WILL know the season. .. Matthew 24:32-33 tells us this …  “Now learn this lesson from the fig tree:  As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near.  Even so, when you see all these things, you know that it is near, right at the door.” .. The ‘things’ that He is talking about include His previous prophecy in verses 6-8 of this same chapter … “You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed.  Such things must happen, but the end is still to come.  7) Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.  There will be famines and earthquakes in various places.  8) All these are the beginning of birth pains.” .. Also, the ‘fig tree’ He refers to I believe represents Israel which has once again become a nation, something NEVER BEFORE seen in human history – a nation that once was, was not, & now is! .. This took place in 1948 & began the ‘season’ leading up to His glorious return! .. Hallelujah! …

It is a time of excitement & speculation as to just when the ‘trumpet will blow.’ .. Yes .. times will become more & more difficult leading up to that final moment, as the ‘birth pains’ in vs. 8 tells us, but for those of us who ‘know,’ we never have to fear because we understand what & why all this is going on. .. It is also a time of opportunity to share why we do not fear with those that are afraid. .. Simply, opportunities are only going to increase as we draw ever closer. .. Don’t miss them! .. In fact, arm yourselves with the truth of God’s perfect Word so that you will be ready. .. Don’t wait, because times is extremely short (no date however). ….

Know that I am praying for each of you & that the Holy Spirit will guide you in these rapidly changing times. .. Always remember that God loves you, knows exactly who you are, and will NEVER forget you! .. Hallelujah! …..

Until next time,

“In the last days, God says, I will pour out My Spirit on all people.  Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams.  18) Even on My servants, both men and women, I will pour out My Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy.  19) I will show wonders in the heaven above and signs on the earth below, blood and fire and billows of smoke.  20) The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord.  21) And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” .. Acts 2:17-21 …

Wow! .. Does this sound like today’s world?! .. I mean the news of late shout out these exact things! .. Blood moons just a year ago .. the sun was darkened on August 21st of this year .. record-setting solar flares .. raging fires across the planet .. earthquakes .. wars & rumors .. famine & drought .. ‘apocalyptic’ hurricanes & typhoons .. the list goes on & on & on & on …………

As for the prophecy of ‘visions & dreams,’ it was 2003 when this ‘old man’ (me) had a dream. .. This took place during an approximate 12-month stretch of time when I received several dreams & ‘promptings’ from the Lord. .. This particular one I’m about to share with you fits into this prophecy perfectly. .. At the time I received this dream, I somehow knew it wasn’t yet time to share it. .. As time passed however, it became clearer & clearer to me its full meaning & that its time of revelation was nearing. .. in 2014, I did mention it in a commentary, but even then, I still felt in my heart that the time for its completion was still a bit down the road. …… But not now! .. It IS time! …… (Just a quick thought here …. I know many folks today, including a large number of Christians, put absolutely no stock into any of this ‘vision & dreams’ stuff. .. I used to be one of them … but not anymore! .. Just this one dream alone has totally changed my entire outlook on this subject. .. Each of you will have to make up your own minds, of course.) .. OK, enough rambling … here’s the dream ……

“I’m lying on my back in an open field looking up at the sky when I’m prompted to look off to my left. ..  Then I see a very large storm on the horizon. .. It was very dark in color and had what appeared to be a funnel cloud in the center. .. I immediately got up, turned to my right, saw an old building .. a barn of sorts .. and ran to it. .. Once inside, I looked for a place to take shelter but soon realized there was nothing in this place that could provide that. …. I went back outside, again looking off to my left, and the storm was much closer than before. .. It was so much larger, darker, and angrier! .. But what was really different was that it was full of raging fire! .. So again, I fled, this time down a path that led into a neighborhood of sorts. .. As I looked down the streets I saw a school bus & homes, but nothing out of the ordinary, all of which appeared normal. .. And then it ended.”

It doesn’t take a genius to ‘see’ that this is exactly what is taking place all around us today. .. The prophesied end-time ‘storm’ is obviously building into a raging worldwide conflagration before our eyes! .. Just look at the first half of September alone for proof. …… And then the ‘old building’ that couldn’t provide adequate protection? .. It is now obvious to me in that it most likely represents today’s human institutions which would include churches, of which none will protect people from the ‘end-time’ storms predicted by the Bible. ……  And then, of course, the ‘neighborhood of normalcy’ representing how most people accept  all that is going on as ‘just the way it is’ & that all things will continue to go on as they always have, as prophesied in Matthew 24:37-39 .. ‘The Days of Noah’ …… And then the flood came, & took them all away! …

Whether or not this is the exact time for all things to come to a crashing conclusion, only God alone knows for sure. .. But what we do know for sure is that Jesus’ prophecy in Matthew 24:6-8 is taking place right before our eyes! .. “You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed.  Such things must happen, but the end is still to come.  7) Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.  There will be famines and earthquakes in various places.  8) All these are the beginning of birth pains.” …. There is absolutely no question the ‘birth pains’ are getting stronger & more frequent, which simply means His return is more & more imminent! .. The only protection from these increasingly violent natural & societal events is faith in Jesus Christ alone. .. That is the only shelter or bunker one needs to ultimately survive this final onslaught of evil & pestilence. ..

OK .. I know some are saying ‘here he goes again,’ but you have to admit things are a bit crazy right now. .. Even the secular press is using headlines like ‘apocalyptic’ or ‘biblical’ as terms to describe all this current worldwide mayhem. .. One said this .. “The World Has Gone Nuts!” … It has, & will continue to accelerate into more & more chaos. .. Sadly, most don’t have a clue as to why because there are so few out there these days that know much about Bible prophecy. .. In fact, over 90% of the churches have stopped teaching it entirely because ‘it is to controversial.’ .. Wow! .. Believe me when I say, the leaders will pay a heavy price for this! .. To NOT prepare the flock about what is coming is borderline blasphemy! ..

I need to stop because I’m descending into a  judgmental mode, which only God has the right. .. So I’ll sign off for now. .. As always, know that I will be praying for each of you for strength & endurance as we move ever closer … Please pray for me as well. .. And always hang on to this … ‘I am the child of a King who is not moved by this world.  For my God is with me and goes before me.  I do not fear because I am His.’ …. He is coming soon! …… Hallelujah! ..

Until next time,
