“First of all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires.  4) They will say, ‘Where is this ‘coming’ He promised? Ever since our fathers died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation.” .. 2 Peter 3:3-4 …

Hello? .. Are you one of these naysayers? .. If you are, I ask that you spend just a few minutes to read or listen to what I’m about to share with you … pure proof that you are ‘scoffing’ up the wrong tree! ..The following is just a short list of prophesied events from the Bible that have already taken place .. a convergence of signs, if you will, that are pure proof that we are, in fact, in the final moments of God’s time clock concerning the triumphant return of His Son, Jesus Christ. …

*Israel -… This is the big one! .. Israel is, & will always be, God’s centerpiece concerning the timing of His overall plan. .. Just look at  these prophesied events that have already happened ..

-They are back in their homeland. .. Never before in history has a nation existed, ceased to exist, and then once again exist. .. This happened on May 14th, 1948 .. (See Ezekiel 37:21 & 20:34, Isaiah 11:2, Psalm 107:3, & Jeremiah 30:2 & 10 for starters) …

-They regained the Holy City of Jerusalem in 1967 …

-They have a great army (Ezekiel 37:10) – Consider this .. Their whole country is less than 13,000 square miles (New Jersey) .. they possess less than one-tenth of one percent the size of her neighboring lands .. she barely cracks the top 100 of most populated lands .. yet boasts one of the world’s best militaries …

-Their desert is blooming & they are currently discovering great riches .. (Isaiah 27:6 & 35:1-2) ..

-Their 144,000 Jewish evangelists are now identified (Revelation 7:4 & 14:3-4) .. Some 150,000 unmarried rabbinical Jews now and their ranks continue to grow …

-The nation’s isolation continues to increase by the day .. They are also the focus of the world’s attention, which is very fascinating considering that they are so tiny & possess really nothing the world desires .. (Zechariah 12:2-3 & Psalm 83) ……. and this is just Israel! … Here’s some more …

*The Signs of Society – Here’s just two Bible Passages that pretty well sum this one up quite thoroughly …

-2 Timothy 3:1-4 .. “But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days.  2) People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy,  3) without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good,  4) treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God – ..”

-Isaiah 5:20 .. “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.” … Any questions? …

*Jesus’ own prophesies in Matthew 24, Mark 13 & Luke 21 … He specifically mentions “birth pains in Matthew 24:8, which simply means that we will witness the increase of wars and rumors of wars, famine & pestilences of all sorts such as earthquakes & record-setting weather events. .. No one can deny that these things are taking place, and are increasing in numbers & intensity by the hour. .. Even secular scientists reluctantly agree.  … Also increasing signs in the sun, moon & stars (Luke 21:25) ..  … There’s no question that there’s been a dramatic increase in comet & meteor sightings all over the world as of late .. (who knows .. maybe even Planet X?) …

*The Beginnings of World Government & Religion .. I mean, the signs of these two becoming reality are everywhere! .. This ‘Agenda 21″ thing that came out of the UN last September is a clear format of what is to become a quickly-evolving one-world government. … I mean we are talking about control of the world’s media, international police forces, and so on. … Trust me when I say, Revelation 13 is just around the corner! .. The ‘Beast’ is nearly upon us! .. And then there’s the world religion scenario, which is Revelation 17. .. Have you been observing the current Pope as well as many other world religious leaders lately? .. It is happening right before our eyes. .. Soon we will all be forced to join their ‘collective’ entity, or be forced underground. .. It is only moments away .. and again, it is all prophesied!

For the sake of time. I will briefly list just a few more for now, and as time goes by (depending on how much we have), I will be more specific with all of it …

*Homosexual Perversion – Genesis 19:5, Luke 17:28-30, 1 Corinthians 6:9-10, Romans 1 – there are many more verses condemning this sin, but enough for now  ..

*Increase in Knowledge & Travel – Daniel 12:4 ..

*Gospel Preached Throughout the World – Matthew 24:14 ..

*Russian/Iranian Coalition – Gog/Magog – Ezekiel 38 & 39 ..

*Scoffers, Mockers & Deceivers Abound – 2 Peter 3:3-4, 2 Timothy 4:3-4, plus many more ..

*Again, I could continue to list more & more until the cows come home! .. Simply, the signs are everywhere! .. God is sounding the alarm bells through His prophets, and we all need to pay close attention to His warnings! .. Scoffing, or denying these truths only hurt & push away the people who desperately need to hear these truths. ..

One final note of interest … More & more ‘watchmen of God’ are sounding the alarm bells. .. Even many Jewish Rabbis are telling their people to ‘get ready’ .. the Lord is coming at any moment! .. I love this final verse I want to share with you today …..  “And we have the word of the prophets made more certain, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.” .. (2 Peter 1:19) … Isn’t that simply a beautiful passage? .. And the wonderful truth is that as you learn more & more about what the prophets are telling us, you will feel much brighter & more joyous because you will understand why the world is the way it is .. why it grows darker & darker by the day .. but that soon all will change ‘in the twinkling of an eye’ and a glorious new world will be upon us! … Hallelujah!  ….

Next week I will share with you some prophesies that are left to be fulfilled soon .. just before the ‘Day of the Lord’ … so ……..

Until next time,

“If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. 19) If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own.  As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world.  That is why the world hates you.” .. John 15:18-19 …

Are you a ‘lonely’ Christian? .. Do you feel that sometimes you may be the only follower of Christ that is trying desperately to follow His teachings during these increasingly difficult times? .. Seriously folks,  there is no question this world is rapidly descending into the depths of Hell with each passing minute! .. As an example, just look at the rapid acceleration of the moral depravity that is going on all over the globe! .. Here in America right now, kids as young as 5 must face the decision of which sex they choose to be.! .. They can even be a fish if they want to be! …(God help us!) … Adding to this tragedy is the increasing participation of this deception by many of our Church leaders. .. In fact, just last week, several Methodist pastors & leaders came out in support of the ‘gay’ agenda & even some were marrying their ‘partners.’ .. There’s no question that the Bible’s teachings on the rampant deception that would be the ‘order of the day’ in the final moments before our Lord’s triumphant return is now upon us .. and it’s only going to get worse. …  I could go on for hours about all the craziness, but for now, let’s get to today’s point ….

So why do a few of us feel isolated & lonely? .. Because the truths of the Holy Scriptures are being re-written & totally distorted by both the Church & the secular society. .. For those of us who refuse to ‘bend’ to the new ways of today’s modern world, we are being singled out as ‘judgmental, intolerant haters.’ .. With each passing day, we are becoming more & more isolated by most everyone around us. .. We are now the ‘pariahs’ of the new modern & progressive society. …

But then, why should I be surprised by this. .. This also was prophesied! .. 2 Timothy 3:12-13 says it quite clearly ..”.. Everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ WILL BE PERSECUTED,  13) while evil men and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.” .. (emphasis mine) .. It’s simply incredible as to just how the ‘true’ written Word of God is so accurate when describing today’s world. ….

I ran across this article written back in 2006 by Billy Graham that sizes up the ‘condition’ of the true followers of Christ .. those of us who do our best to stay true to the teachings given to us through the Holy Bible. .. The following is an excerpt from that article ….

“Paul was not popular in his day.  He was little known, despised and rejected.  This does not sound much like the way we paint the ministry today, when preaching is many times called a profession instead of a calling.  Nowhere in the New Testament do I find that Christians are to expect to be popular and successful.  The servant is not better than his Lord.  Christ was despised and rejected, with nowhere to lay His head.  He was born in another person’s stable.  He died outside the city walls, an outcast, having come to His own who received Him not.  He was buried in another man’s tomb.

“In His footsteps followed the heroes of the faith who were tortured, mocked, imprisoned, stoned, torn asunder, slain with the sword.  They wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins, destitute, afflicted, tormented.  They wandered the deserts, in mountains and in caves of the earth.

“In many parts of the world, being a Christian still means suffering.  But here in America, giving your life to Jesus Christ brings little persecution.  Sometimes it is difficult to tell a Christian from a worldling in the United States. ..

“I’m afraid that we in the Church are making a great mistake by trying to make Christianity popular and pleasant.  We have taken away the cross and substituted cushions.  But Christ said the world hated Him, and He predicted that it would hate us.  He invited us not to a picnic but to a pilgrimage.  He offered us not an excursion but an execution.

“Too many Christians have geared their program to gain worldly favor.  We argue that humanity is more Christian now, that we need not suffer as our forefathers did. … But the times are not brighter.  Christians are a foreign influence, a minority group in a heathen world.  If the Church is acceptable to this present age and is not stirring up trouble or suffering reproach, then God have mercy on the Church!  If we are at peace with this world, it may be because we have sold out to it.”

Sums it up quite well, I would think. .. So yes, we who follow closely to the true teachings should not be the least bit surprised by our increasing isolation. .. In fact, it gives us a great opportunity to witness to this lost and dying world… So how do we do this? .. I believe that when things are unsettled, the most powerful testimony is that the Christian is wholly at peace. .. While the rest of society is in a panic – fainting, and in some cases, even dying from fear – the praying believer will be growing continually stronger. .. It will be so because that we will be receiving more & more encouragement from the Holy Spirit. .. The Bible speaks of that which can’t be shaken! ..

Bottom line? .. Our isolation & persecution will only increase as we draw ever closer … and if we want to be able to stand steadfast in this increasing storm, Scripture’s counsel is simple:  We MUST have the Lord’s presence in our daily life. .. Jesus tells us in John 16:33 .. “In this world you will have trouble.  But take heart!  I have overcome the world.” … Hallelujah! …

How much quality time do you spend alone with Jesus? .. Are you growing closer to Him with each passing day? .. Do you pray without ceasing  – that is, to silently call out to Him throughout the day and evening? .. He promises to hear your cry, even when uttered in weakness. ..

Let me close with these encouraging words from the prophet Isaiah … “Do you not know?  Have you not heard?  The Lord is the everlasting God, the creator of the ends of the earth.  He will not grow tired or weary, and His understanding no one can fathom.  29) He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.  30) Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall;  31) but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.  They will soar like eagles;  they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” …. Isaiah 40:28-31 …

Stand strong – your victory is so very near! … Hallelujah! …

It is real? .. or .. is it fiction? … Is this just another conspiracy theory? ..  or not? …  I guess each of us will have to come to our own conclusions concerning this one. .. I’ve mostly ignored this ‘Planet X’  thing since its recent re-emergence in the media, but then I stumbled upon an Israeli website that has some very fascinating information about it … and now … I think I just may have to take a ‘new’ look at the whole thing. …… The following is a brief overview of what I found ……

In 1972, some 40+ years ago, NASA announced the existence of a new planet far from earth – beyond Pluto, which at that time was still considered the 9th planet. .. They named it ‘Planet X.’ .. It was then published in science magazines as well as the general world media outlets at that time. …… But then, after a very brief interval, all information pertaining to this galactic discovery disappeared. .. All studies & theories suddenly vanished. .. Some ‘insiders’ at that time were quoted as saying that it had become ‘top secret’ & not for public consumption. .. As time went by, new leaked information pretty much proved that the world’s governments had ‘ordered’ all concerned to be silent regarding this new planet. .. Also, it was discovered that NASA had released ‘misleading’ information about the whole thing. .. Simply, all knowledge of this phenomenon was being controlled by just ‘a few’ ….. (The plot thickens) …

And another very interesting tidbit … About 30 years ago, The Vatican, with its vast access to endless funds, partnered with NASA to build a huge and very sophisticated telescope with the specific purpose of tracking this ‘non-existent’ space object. .. And you’ll never guess what they named it …. ‘Lucifer’ .. (I’m not kidding)! … And again, not surprisingly, this was all kept from the world’s masses. .. In fact, in conjunction with the original ‘ordered’ secrecy, they leaked more & more information refuting its existence .. that it was a myth .. a conspiracy theory. …

But now, the secret can be kept no longer! .. Why? .. Because more & more people are now ‘seeing’ this ‘Planet X’ with their own eyes as it draws nearer to earth. .. As a result of this, NASA had no choice but to acknowledge its existence. .. They did so on January 16th of this year. .. In their brief statement, they stated the existence of a 9th planet (Pluto since being unrecognized) that has a mass 5 times larger than earth’s, with 7 moons circling it, plus a trail of asteroids & meteors, and that it’s current orbit will  draw it closer & closer to earth with each passing day. ..

So now, why all the secrecy before this revelation? .. Information being obtained now by various credible sources tell us that when this ‘Planet X’ passes earth at its closest point in the coming days, its impact will wreak catastrophic consequences on Mother Earth … earthquakes .. tsunamis .. volcanic eruptions .. extreme weather .. & because of all the meteors trailing this thing, the earth’s land masses will suffer devastating impacts from them. .. Now considering all these possibilities, going public would cause worldwide panic, the results of which would be an economic meltdown with a complete shut-down of society as we have come to know it!

Now, let’s again go back to those 30+ years ago .. when the world’s leaders .. the elite .. ordered the the secrecy of this information. .. This is when they began preparations for the possibility of this coming future catastrophic event. .. They have since built 1000s of underground bunkers & supplied them with enough food & medical supplies to last for what they deem to be enough time to survive the devastation to come. .. As for the general population .. well .. there’s just too many, so ……

So now, does any of this make sense to us? .. Let’s look at just a few things we do know. .. It has been proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that when this ‘Planet X’ gets the closest to us, it will cause various geological disruptions. .. OK .. So we also now know that with each passing day, it IS drawing closer & closer and we are seeing more & more earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, & record-breaking weather events.  .. Secular scientists have admitted that they have increased almost 10-fold in the past decade, and that they are all increasing in size & strength. … Also, there seems to be more & more ‘meteorite’ sightings across the world as of late. .. So is this being brought on by this approaching space object? ..

I think it’s time to turn to the one source that I can totally trust .. and that’s the Holy Bible. .. What does it say concerning the ‘end of days?’ .. It does tell us that some two-thirds of the world’s people will be destroyed (Isaiah, chapters 24 & 34, Zechariah 13, Revelation, chapter 6 – the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse) .. Also Jesus Himself prophesied of the increasing cataclysmic events just before His return (see Matthew 24 (birth pains), Mark 13 & Luke 21) .. In fact, in Luke 21:25, He said for us to watch for “signs in the sun, moon and stars.” … Another point .. Does God use nature as a tool for His purposes? .. Two quick examples are the flood in Noah’s time & the utter destruction of Sodom & Gomorrah with fire from heaven. .. And one more .. Daniel was told to “go your way, Daniel, because the words are closed up and sealed until the time of the end.’ (12:9) .. In a very similar way, this ‘Planet X’ thing as been pretty much sealed up until just now … There’s more, but you get the idea ….

Enough of this! .. But one has to admit that this is all very fascinating when looked upon with this new information. .. What is also interesting is that with all the forthcoming facts, there has been no exact timeline as to when this thing will get to its closest point to earth. .. In other words, they claim to  not know the ‘time or the hour’ … sounds so biblical! …

Anyway, whatever happens, we know as ‘watchmen’ of God’s prophetic teachings that we are, in fact in the final moments of this age .. that our Lord’s triumphant return is but just moments away! .. Hallelujah! .. Whether it be ‘Planet X’ or by other means, we know that times will become worse & worse as we draw nearer, and that we need to be prepared to stand strong in this, our assigned times here on earth. .. Here’s the one thing I CAN promise you .. that if your faith in Jesus Christ is strong, you WILL NOT FEAR & will be victorious when all this ‘earthly dust’ settles. .. Hallelujah! ..

Know that I love each of you & am praying fervently for your spiritual strength in these increasingly difficult days .. and God knows exactly who you are. … Just remember, you are never alone when you are a part of the family of God. .. Hallelujah! …….

Until next time,
