“The way that people are misusing this verse would make God the executioner of seven million Jews under his man Hitler, and twenty million Christians under his appointed king Stalin.”

Daniel 2:21 “It is He who changes the times and the epochs; He removes kings and establishes kings…

The way people rip this single verse out of context and use it in ways contrary to the record of the whole Bible is amazing… People use this verse in a way that makes God directly responsible for every evil thing done by every king who ever lived…

This verse, ignored while Obama was president, is now being used to lift up and support Trump as God’s man on earth and the savior of America and all things American…

The way that people are misusing this verse would make God the executioner of seven million Jews under his man Hitler, and twenty million Christians under his appointed king Stalin.

God complains about the Kings of Israel and says that they, not He, were to blame for the fall of Jerusalem. If He sets up every king and deposes of all the bad ones, He alone is responsible for all of the evil done by every king who ever lived…

You cannot build a doctrine or base your beliefs on a single verse ripped out of context… That is a deadly error…

This is a war. Kings are ruled and used by Satan in his attempt to overthrow Jehovah God and retain his position as god of this world…

That verse must be compared with the rest of Scripture and its meaning defined by the massive weight of Scripture that opposes the particular weird and strange interpretation that is being forced upon it by Trumpettes, Trumpites, and the other Christianesque peoples of this land…




As this is January 1, 2018, let me make some predictions… Again, I am not a Prophet and none of my predictions begin with “Thus saith the Lord…” This is based on a knowledge of Scripture and observations of current events… more prognostications than prophecies.

Some of these things will continue to build during 2018 but not come to full fulfillment this year. Others, sadly, will probably come to fruition within the next twelve months. I confess that any or all of these things may be wrong… This is just how I see it today, Monday, January 1, 2018.


  • Many Pastors, ministries and Christians will swear allegiance to the Pope and adopt “Unity at any cost” as their goal.
  • Many Pastors, ministries and Christians will abandon the faith.
  • Some will fall into Judaistic Legalism.
  • Most will fall into Hyper-Grace “Nothingism.”
  • More and more Pastors will choose the “Happy Gospel” over Biblical Truth, leaving their congregants to worship a Jesus of their own imagination.
  • Millions of “Christians”, devoid of any Biblical knowledge will follow Lucifer, fully persuaded that he is Jesus Christ.
  • The United States will continue to build the groundwork for a divided Israel and a split Jerusalem, perhaps this is the year they will succeed.
  • The treaty that does that will do three things:
    • Give Israel a Temple.
    • Give Palestinians a homeland with East Jerusalem as their Capital.
    • Give administrative control of Jerusalem to the Pope and the Vatican.
  • God will step in and divide the United States into two parts, initiating a bloody civil war, death, destruction and famine.
  • Most Christians will continue to believe that the United States and the Kingdom of God are one and the same thing, indivisible under God.
  • Most Christians will continue to believe that Donald Trump is a Prince with God, sent to save us in our sins.

Again, all of these things are coming. Some will see their foundations built and strengthened, others will come to full term in this year… Wait and see.


The “Phoenix”, World’s Only Choice

It will not be long after the birth of the Phoenix, as the world currency, that Christians will be faced with the agonizing choice of getting chipped or starving their babies to death.

As of today, Bitcoin , which was at $19,600 a week ago, is at $9,600. That really does not matter, it will most likely rise again. As we look 2018 in the face, it is important to understand that this will, quite possibly be the year of the great crash that people, both Christian and secular, have been declaring as inevitable for several years now.

Remember that, thirty years ago, in 1988, The ECONOMIST magazine prophesied that in about the year 2018, the world would adopt a single, cashless, digital currency.

Today, other than Bitcoin, there are many Crypto Currencies. The top six, arguably, are:

1) Litecoin (LTC)

2) Ethereum (ETH) …

3) Zcash (ZEC) …

4) Dash. …

5) Ripple (XRP) …

6) Monero (XMR) …

The Bottom Line:

The ECONOMIST called their prophetic currency the “Phoenix.” This is because the bird of legend lives for hundreds of years. When it is old and dying, it crashes with such force that it bursts into flames… it is out of the flames that the newer, younger, better and more powerful phoenix rises in its glory. This is a picture of what Lucifer and his Elitists are trying to do. They would build a debt crisis of herculean proportions and crash it so violently that it burns, like the phoenix of ancient lore. They believe that, out of the flames, a New World Order will rise, Lucifer will reign as the god of this world and the Elite will become gods, ruling and reigning with him.

They would crash the Dollar, and with it, the United States of America and all of Western Society, in the sincere belief that that which rises from the ashes will be newer, better and stronger than the old. Whatever it is called, there will be one, single, world currency and it will be a cashless, Crypto-Currency. The Phoenix, if we may call it that, will survive the crash of the Dollar and all the world’s national currencies. It will become the “only option.”

Even Christians who own Crypto Currency will benefit, at first. It will not be long until hackers begin to steal huge amounts of this new money… The answer, of course, is found in your Bible… a mark, on the right hand or the forehead, without which no one can buy or sell. How convenient that that technology has already been developed and that, apparently, billions of individually numbered microchips are already stored in warehouses, ready for injection…

It will not be long after the birth of the Phoenix, as the world currency, that Christians will be faced with the agonizing choice of getting chipped or starving their babies to death. The Television preachers will be all over the TV, assuring people that this is not and cannot be the “Mark of the Beast” because the Rapture has not happened, and we know, from the movie, that the Mark does not happen until after all the Christians have run up the Celestial Fire Escape. Most, knowing better deep down inside, will choose to believe them, taking the Mark and losing their souls.

Only those who know their God and believe that He can care for them, without benefit of stores and money, will resist. They will determine, in their hearts, that God will rescue them, BUT IF NOT, they will starve rather than take the mark…

Say it out loud now… Practice:

“Our God will rescue us, BUT IF NOT, we will not take the mark!”

The day that the New Government announces that you have ninety days to get the chip or starve, is not the time to decide. Make a firm decision today. Know what you will do. It may not be 2018. George Orwell’s predictions for 1984 did not happen until about 2012, but they did happen. The Economist predicted that the Phoenix would rise in 2018… they might be off by a few years but it is the plan, and Scripture tells us that it will happen.

Happy New Year!




“This mock Christ will be ‘received’ by Israel. The Jews will be deceived by Him. They will believe that he is indeed their long-expected Messiah.”

“THE ANTICHRIST WILL BE A JEW” I do not know if that is true or not, but I do know that he will be accepted by the Jews. Two of the more famous Rabbis in Israel have spoken of Donald Trump as either the Mashiach or the one who will usher in the Mashiach… They make it clear that their theology does not require the Mashiach to be a Jew. From their writings, it is clear that their description of the Jewish Mashiach matches perfectly with the New Testament descriptions of the Man of Sin.

The following is the argument that Antichrist will be Jewish. Even if you reject that, the Scriptures quoted and the arguments given support my thesis that the Jews will accept him as their messiah.

Arthur W. Pink, 1886-1952, was a well-known English Bible Teacher and Theologian. He was trained at Moody Bible Institute in Chicago but lived and ministered in the UK. Rev. Pink wrote the following…

The Antichrist will be a Jew, though his connections, his governmental position, his sphere of dominion, will by no means confine him to the Israelitish people. It should, however, be pointed out that there is no express declaration of Scripture which says in so many words that this daring Rebel will be “a Jew;” nevertheless, the hints given are so plain, the conclusions which must be drawn from certain statements of Holy Writ are so obvious, and the requirements of the case are so inevitable, that we are forced to believe he must be a Jew. To these hints’, conclusions’ and requirements’ we now turn.

1. In Ezek.21:25-27 we read: “and thou, profane wicked prince of Israel, whose day is come, when iniquity shall have an end, Thus saith the Lord God; Remove the diadem, and take off the crown: this shall not be the same: exalt him that is low, and abase him that is high. I will overturn, overturn, overturn it: and it shall be no more until he comes whose right it is, and I will give it him.” The dispensational place and scope of this passage, is not hard to determine. The time-mark is given in v.25: it is “when iniquity shall have an end.” It is the End-Time which is in view, then, the End of the Age, when “the transgressors are come to the full” (Dan.8:23 and cf.11:36 — “Till the indignation be accomplished”). At that time Israel shall have a Prince, a Prince who is crowned (v.26), and a Prince whose day is said to be come when “iniquity shall have an end.” Now, as to who this Prince is, there is surely no room for doubt. The only Prince whom Israel will have in that day, is the Son of Perdition, here termed their Prince because he will be masquerading as Messiah the Prince (see Dan.9:25)! Another unmistakable mark of identification is here given, in that he is expressly denominated “thou, profane wicked Prince” — assuredly, it is the Man of Sin who is here in view, that impious one who shall “oppose and exalt himself above all that is called God.” But what should be noted particularly, is, that this profane and wicked character is here named “Prince of Israel.” He must, therefore, be of the Abrahamic stock, a Jew!

2. In Ezek.28:2-10 a remarkable description is given us of the Antichrist under the figure of “the Prince of Tyrus,” just as in vv.12-19 we have another most striking delineation of Satan under the figure of “the king of Tyrus.” In a later chapter we hope to show that, beyond a doubt, it is the Antichrist who is in view in the first section of this chapter. There is only one thing that we would now point out from this passage: in v.10 it is said of him “Thou shalt die the deaths of the uncircumcised,” which is a very strong hint that he ought not to die the deaths of the “uncircumcised” because he belonged to the Circumcision! Should it be said that this verse cannot apply to the Antichrist because he will be destroyed by Christ Himself at His coming, the objection is very easily disposed of by a reference to Rev.13:14, which tells of the Antichrist being wounded to death by a sword and rising from the dead — which is prior to his ultimate destruction at the hands of the Saviour.

3. In Dan.11:36, 37 we are told, “And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvelous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done. Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers.” This passage, it is evident, refers to and describes none other than the coming Antichrist. But what we wish to call special attention to is the last sentence quoted — “The God of his fathers.” What are we to understand by this expression? Why, surely, that he is a Jew, an Israelite, and that his fathers after the flesh were Abraham, Isaac and Jacob — for such is the invariable meaning of “the fathers” throughout the Old Testament Scriptures.

4. In Matt.12:43-45 we have another remarkable scripture which will be considered briefly, in a later section of this chapter, when we shall endeavor to show that “The Unclean Spirit” here is none other than the Son of Perdition, and that the “house” from which he goes out and into which he returns, is the Nation of Israel. If this can be established, then we have another proof that he will be a Jew, for this “house,” which is Israel, is here termed by Antichrist “my house.” Just as Solomon was of “the House of David,” so Antichrist shall be of the House of Israel.

5. In John 5:43 we have a further word which helps us to fix the nationality of this coming One. In speaking of the false messiah, the Lord Jesus referred to him as follows, “Another shall come in his own name.” In the Greek there are four different words all translated “Another” in our English versions. One of them is employed but once, and a second but five times, so these need not detain us now. The remaining two are used frequently, and with a clear distinction between them. The first “allos” signifies “another” of the same kind or genus — see Matt.10:23; 13:24; 26:71, etc. The second, “heteros,” means “another” of a totally different kind, — see Mark 16:12; Luke 14:31; Acts 7:18; Rom.7:23. Now the striking thing is that the word used by our Lord in John 5:43 is “allos,” another of the same genus, not “heteros,” another of a different order. Christ, the Son of Abraham, the Son of David, had presented Himself to Israel, and they rejected Him; but “another” of the same Abrahamic stock should come to them, and him they would “receive.” If the coming Antichrist were to be a Gentile, the Lord would have employed the word “heteros;” the fact that He used “allos” shows that he will be a Jew.

6. The very name “Antichrist” argues strongly his Jewish nationality. This title “Antichrist” has a double significance. It means that he will be one who shall be “opposed” to Christ, one who will be His enemy. But it also purports that he will be a mock Christ, an imitation Christ, a pro-Christ, a pseudo Christ. It intimates that he will ape Christ. He will pose as the real Messiah of Israel. In such case he must be a Jew.

7. This mock Christ will be “received” by Israel. The Jews will be deceived by Him. They will believe that he is indeed their long-expected Messiah. They will accept him as such. Proofs of this will be furnished in a later chapter. But if this pseudo Christ succeeds in palming himself off on the Jews as their true Messiah he must be a Jew, for it is unthinkable that they would be deceived by any Gentile.

Ere passing to the next point, we may add, that it was the common belief among Christians during the first four centuries A.D., that the Antichrist would come from the tribe of Dan. Whether this will be the case or no, we do not know. Gen.49:17, 18 may have ultimate reference to this Son of Perdition. Certainly Dan is the most mysterious of all the twelve tribes.


“The multitude, disillusioned with Christianity… will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view.”

Let me lay a foundation:

In 1978, Iran was Israel’s strongest ally in the Middle East, wealthy Israelis vacationed on Turkey’s beautiful beaches and Ezekiel 38 made no sense at all. Recently, Putin met with Erdoğan of Turkey and Iran’s Rouhani in Moscow and the stage is set for the war described by the Prophet. Ezekiel saw Turkey, Iran, and Russia, all together, in an all-out assault against Israel. There are Biblical and secular hints that China will march down, crossing the dried up Euphrates to attack Israel as well… They all attack through Syria… Surprise, surprise, surprise…

Ezekiel 38:3 …This is what the Lord God says: Look, I am against you, Gog, chief prince of Meshech and Tubal. (Russia) 4 I will turn you around, put hooks in your jaws, and bring you out with all your army, including horses and riders, who are all splendidly dressed, a huge company armed with shields and bucklers, all of them brandishing swords. 5 Persia, Cush, and Put are with them…

Israel is now known to have the largest supply of oil of any nation in the world. That reserve dwarfs Saudi Arabia and Russia combined. God says that He will put a hook in Russia’s mouth and drag her down, with her entire military, to attack Israel. She will be joined by Iran, Turkey and Syria but the U.S. and Saudi Arabia will sit it out, talking but doing nothing. Oil is the hook that God is using…

Damascus is the oldest continually occupied city in the world. Strangely enough, one of the Biblical signs of the End-Times is the destruction of Damascus. The Israeli oil field stretches north from the Golan and finds its northern border under the streets of Damascus… That just might explain the annihilation of that once beautiful city.

Ezekiel says that it is God himself who is pulling Russia down to attack Israel. He also says that God is going to use that opportunity to destroy Russia. God says that He will cause a massive, mountain leveling earthquake in Israel and that he will rain fire and hail from the skies, obliterating the attacking armies. God says that it will be so violent that the world will, for a moment, recognize it as his doing.

This will, at the same time, destroy the old centers of both Islam and Atheism. The head of the Caliphate and the heads of the world’s communist empires both destroyed with a single blow. Neither will ever recover. This will leave the Vatican, Pope Francis and the Roman Catholic Church as the undisputed power center of the world…

You must understand three things at this point:

  1. The Roman Catholic Church is and always has been the center of ancient Pagan Religion in the West. It is not, and never has been a Christian Church. They Baptized the ancient gods, giving them Christian names and mixed in some Christian words but the doctrine and dogma of the church lines up with the ancient worship of Osiris, Isis, Horus, Apollo and the rest, not the Bible or the God of the Bible.
  2. The United States is the Daughter of Rome, something a quick tour of Washington DC will quickly substantiate.
  3. The Masonic Lodge in Washington DC is the repository of Jesuit Mysticism and ancient occultic religion on the American Continent… The official name of the building is a mind bender… “The Supreme Council (Mother Council of the World) of the Inspectors General Knights Commander of the House of the Temple of Solomon of the Thirty-third degree of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry of the Southern Jurisdiction of the United States of America.” (Yes that, every word of it, is the name of the place.)

That Temple contains a museum devoted to Albert Pike, who rewrote a number of the Scottish Rite rituals and headed its Supreme Council from 1859 until his death in 1891, and whose remains are buried in the House of the Temple. In 1871, Albert Pike wrote, “The Third World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences caused by the ‘agentur’, of the ‘Illuminati’ between the political Zionists and the leaders of Islamic World. The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam (the Moslem Arabic World) and political Zionism (the State of Israel) mutually destroy each other. Meanwhile the other nations, once more divided on this issue will be constrained to fight to the point of complete physical, moral, spiritual and economical exhaustion…We shall unleash the Nihilists and the atheists, and we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil. Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirits will from that moment be without compass or direction, anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view. This manifestation will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time.”

I want you to note the following statements out of that long paragraph:

  1. The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam (the Moslem Arabic World) and political Zionism (the State of Israel) mutually destroy each other.
  2. Will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil.
  3. The multitude, disillusioned with Christianity… will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view.
  4. This manifestation will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time.

Lest you laugh at that scenario, may I point out that his predictions for World Wars One and Two, were letter perfect and both wars happened exactly as predicted. I should also quote the Scripture here.

Revelation 13:7 And he was permitted to wage war against the saints and to conquer them. He was also given authority over every tribe, people, language, and nation.

It is the godless and atheistic Left… the socialists and communists who have destroyed the world, and most people understand that fact. The Muslims are hated and feared because of their bent towards terrorism and mass murder. The World hates the Jews and Israel because of the God of Abraham, whom they reject outright, and Christians are the most hated of all because their presence convicts the world of sin and righteousness and judgment. It is the goal of Lucifer and the Luciferian Elite to pit all of these groups against each other, resulting in the mutual destruction of all of those groups and the much-coveted reduction in the world’s population. (Thirty Quotes on Population Reduction)

So, what is left after the war, if Christians, Jews, Muslims and Atheists are all destroyed? The world is left with a One World Government, a single world ruler, a Luciferian Elite, and a greatly reduced population; demonized, convinced worshipers of Lucifer and the old gods. Useful surfs who will serve and provide for the Elite Class.

One thing leads to another but the day Russia, Turkey and Iran march through Syria and into the Golan is fast approaching… That, according to both the Bible and the Luciferians, will lead to WW3, followed by a false peace under the Antichrist.

Then comes Armageddon…






MIXTURE: The Babylonian Gospel

The Babylonian Gospel and mixture is the only message I ever heard. Even five years ago, if you had asked me to tell you what I believed, much of what I told you would have had its roots in Baptist Denominational Distinctives, the Masonic Religion and the Great American Lie. Even after years abroad, where I was confronted by a Gospel not mixed with American Patriotism, much of what I believed was more American than Christian.

My Grandfather was a 33rd Degree Mason and a “Lifetime Deacon” at First Baptist Church in West Palm Beach, Florida. I do not know how many of the men on that board were Master Masons, but I would imagine that it was a clear majority. This was an upscale church… a church where the Rich and Famous could feel at home.

It was my Grandfather and his Masonic buddies who planned the new Sanctuary as a Greek Temple, designed and built with strict Masonic Architecture…

We would sing the right hymns. The basics of the Gospel were preached, but it was all about walking the aisle, shaking the Preacher’s hand, repeating a canned prayer and getting dunked in the ornate, marble baptistry. With “Once Saved, Always Saved,” as a core doctrine, what you did after that was relatively unimportant. A strict moral code was taught but more from the Masonic point of view than the Gospel. The thrust being that you need to live right because it is good for your country, society and your community, and living right will make you healthy, wealthy and wise.

It was always assumed that if you had walked an aisle, shaken the preacher’s hand, repeated the prayer and got dunked, you were going to Heaven… No one dared question that formula.

Some of the old men in the church had fought in World War One. Most of the adult men had fought in World War Two and or Korea. The young men were going off to Vietnam and returning, often in a box. No matter what the truth about Vietnam, Korea or any other war, if you were a Christian, you supported America, the Flag and the latest war. The most ungodly and unchristian thing a young person could do was to question America. They probably never said it but we all knew that America was the Kingdom of God and God was an American.

The Methodists could lose their salvation, but they too thought that God was an American. The Presbyterians knew that God was an American and a Presbyterian… We all could agree that to be a good American was very important and that if America did it, it was God’s will and God’s way.

On the Fourth of July, the National Guard Color Guard would march the American Flag down the Aisle and we would all stand and sing the National Anthem as they stood at attention, flags in hand… The Pride was palpable…

At Christmas, the children would perform a passion play, baby Jesus in the manger, under the Christmas Tree…

For Easter, we would hold a Sunrise Service. That was followed, at Sunday School time, by an Easter Egg Hunt for the kids and then the 11:00 Church Service where we would all sing “Hallelujah, He arose!” at the top of our lungs…

Then, I went off and became Pentecostal… I spoke in tongues, prophesied and saw real miracles… But they were still sold on the America thing, Christmas Trees and the Easter Bunny. More than that, they were frightened and legalistic to the max. I could tell how spiritual a man was by looking at his wife. If she was ugly, wore dresses to the floor, kept her head covered and wore neither jewelry nor makeup… that was a Holy and Righteous man!

The question that continually surfaced was, “If I get in an accident and I say a bad word and I die before I can repent, will I go to Hell?” Not pleasant people to be around…

Over the last twenty years, I have watched Pentecostals go through a great change. They started a rapid flight away from legalism. Unfortunately, they passed the truth going ninety miles an hour and slid right into what some have called “Sloppy Agape.” The current, approved term is Hyper-Grace. This is a politicly-correct religion… You NEVER preach on sin or call for repentance. You preach on the importance of accepting everybody and offending nobody. Scriptures to be read and sermons to be preached are carefully scrutinized. If there is any way that a verse could offend anybody, it is not read. If there is an offensive phrase or word in a sermon, it is scratched out and never spoken. Only Happy Verses and Happy sermons are allowed.

It no longer matters what you wear. As a Sailor, a lifetime ago, I saw Pole Dancers better dressed than some of the young ladies in church…

Altar-Calls are for Happy Prophecy, Blessing and Miracles, NEVER for repentance or salvation.

But still, the lie of American Patriotism pervades the American Church. You cannot be a Good Christian if you are not a strong patriot. You cannot have a cross unless it is draped with a flag…

President Trump must be from God… America and the Kingdom of God are one and the same… God is American and Jesus lounges around Heaven in red, white and blue pajamas… Surely Trump is a Prince, sent from God to save God’s Country, in her sin, and grant her time and freedom to sin some more…

I see that attitude, in posts and comments on my Facebook Page…

Jesus asked, “When the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on earth?” (Luke 18:8) I am leaning more and more to the negative reply… “No, none or very little.”

If you just go back, with a prayerful attitude, and throwing out everything you were taught, read the Book, you will find that it is very simple and straight forward… I think that you will discover that America is not the Kingdom of God but rather Babylon. Jesus is nothing like what you always thought He was, and being a Christian has nothing at all to do with walking an aisle, shaking a Preacher’s hand, repeating a little prayer and getting dunked in a baptistry…

Not even an ornate, marble baptistry…



Today, the virgin gave birth. As dawn broke, today, 2 Tishri 5778, Michael stood up to fight. Today is the Sabbath of Return; the first Sabbath of the year in which the generation that shall not pass away before the end turns seventy. Israel is seventy years old, the Jubilee has ended. Jerusalem has been a part of Israel for a full fifty years… this is a significant day.

The Virgin Has Delivered
Michael Has Risen
Satan Is Thrown Down
Tribulation Is Decreed

Nothing I could say would convince the unbelievers, the blind and the mindless mockers that this is a special day. The blind have chosen their own disability and they proudly brag of their inability to see, mocking those who, with spiritual eyes, see what the Hand of God is doing. Let them mock.

Like The Birth Of Jesus, What Happens On Earth Today, Will Be Seen By The Wise But Escape The Eyes Of The Religious… It is funny how the blind brag on their blindness; their ability to read the Bible, observe current events and make no connection…

As dawn broke in Israel, on the Sabbath of Return, a madman in Alabama stood to mock a madman in North Korea, and Michael stood up to fight. John saw two signs in Heaven. The Virgin giving birth and a Red Dragon who would try to steal her child. The Red Dragon, blacked out on the NASA sight but visible on others, follows close behind the virgin.

These signs are associated, by John, in Revelation 12, with a war in Heaven. Michael makes war with the Dragon, identified in Scripture as the Devil, and the Devil is cast down to earth, with all his angels… This war in Heaven will be mimicked and played out on earth; as in Heaven, so on earth. We are in for a great and awesome World War, the likes of which no man has ever seen.

John, immediately following the vision of the signs in Heaven, says this:

Revelation 12:

7 Then war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon. The dragon and his angels also fought, 8 but he could not prevail, and there was no place for them in heaven any longer. 9 So the great dragon was thrown out—the ancient serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan, the one who deceives the whole world. He was thrown to earth, and his angels with him.

This passage is easily connected to the passage in Daniel:

Daniel 12:

1 At that time
Michael the great prince
who stands watch over your people will rise up.
There will be a time of distress
such as never has occurred
since nations came into being until that time.
But at that time all your people
who are found written in the book will escape.
Many of those who sleep in the dust
of the earth will awake,
some to eternal life,
and some to shame and eternal contempt.
Those who are wise will shine
like the bright expanse of the heavens,
and those who lead many to righteousness,
like the stars forever and ever.

This is not talking about a day but about a period of time that begins today; a period of time we call “The Great Tribulation.” That Tribulation starts with a war. That war ends with the fall of Babylon and the birth of the New World Order, aka The Kingdom of the Beast. At the end of that war, one third of mankind is dead and the nations of the earth are so weary that they are willing to lower their flags and submit to the one world government. It is at the end of that war that Satan and his angels are cast to earth and things get really evil…

One third of the Angels are cast to earth and one third of mankind dies… “As in Heaven, so on earth.”

Revelation 12:

12 “For this reason, rejoice, O heavens and you who dwell in them. Woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, knowing that he has only a short time.”

This is a time in which the Beast makes war against the Saints (you and me) and overcomes them.

Note: If we had been raptured, it would not be necessary for the Beast to make war against us.

Revelation 13:

7 And he was permitted to wage war against the saints and to conquer them. He was also given authority over every tribe, people, language, and nation.

John tells us…

Revelation 12:

13 When the dragon saw that he had been thrown to earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male child. 14 The woman was given two wings of a great eagle, so that she could fly from the serpent’s presence to her place in the wilderness, where she was fed for a time, times, and half a time. 15 From his mouth the serpent spewed water like a river flowing after the woman, to sweep her away in a torrent. 16 But the earth helped the woman. The earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the river that the dragon had spewed from his mouth.

17 So the dragon was furious with the woman and left to wage war against the rest of her offspring—those who keep God’s commands and have the testimony about Jesus. 

This is straightforward. When Satan is thrown down, he goes after Israel but Israel is supernaturally protected and so Satan, frustrated and angry, comes after us…

This lines up with what Jesus said…

Matthew 24:

9 “Then they will deliver you to tribulation, and will kill you, and you will be hated by all nations because of My name…”

Today, whatever happens or does not happen, is the beginning of a very rough time. I am warning you so that you are not taken by surprise or deceived…

The song writer wrote…

This world is not my home, I’m just passing through…

Remember that… Joel Osteen and his “Best Life Now and Hell Later” doctrine aside, Scripture says…

1 Corinthians 15:

19 If we have hoped in Christ in this life only, we are of all men most to be pitied.

If your hope is all wrapped up in this life and the pleasures of Babylon and yet you claim to be a Christian, you are most pitiful… Your suffering is going to be beyond belief…

Now is the time to make Heaven your home. If your hope is in Heaven with God, the worst that the Beast can do is to give you an unpleasant send off on your journey home…

Matthew 24:

13 “But the one who endures to the end, he will be saved.”

That, my friend, does not mean the end of the Tribulation, it refers to the end of your ministry on earth…

Hold On!
