ALIENS, DEMONS AND YOU…

“There will be a double disclosure. We will not only find out about the Black Magic and the evil “Aliens” who have empowered the Cabal that has enslaved us, we will find out about the White Magic and the good “Aliens” who have empowered the Alliance that has saved us…”

2 Thessalonians 2:9 The coming of the lawless one is based on Satan’s working, with all kinds of false miracles, signs, and wonders, 10 and with every unrighteous deception among those who are perishing.

What is about to happen on earth is going to be shocking. It is going to be supernatural beyond your wildest dreams…

Matthew 24:37 As the days of Noah were, so the coming of the Son of Man will be.

Jesus said that it will be as it was in the days of Noah. In context, he is speaking of the element of surprise… Noah had been preaching for years, yet it took the people by surprise. Jesus was talking about our day, in his day. The Prophets spoke of our day hundreds of years before that. Many have been preaching about our day for many years. I am writing about our day even now… yet it will take most people, including and perhaps especially, Christians by surprise.

If you understand Genesis 6, if you have read the book of Enoch, you know that there is more than just the element of surprise in Jesus comment, “As it was in the days of Noah…” In the days of Noah, we had a group of beings on this planet who are called Benei HaʼElōhīm, the Sons of God. Whether you call them fallen angels or aliens makes no difference, they were not human, but they mated with human women and produced a bastard race of giants called Gibborum. These Gibborum took over the human race and nearly extinguished it.  Scripture says:

Genesis 6: 9 (KJV) These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and PERFECT IN HIS GENERATIONS, and Noah walked with God.

This is one place where KJV got it right… This is what the Hebrew says. The meaning of the phrase is that Noah was still fully human, he had no Nephilim blood… His descendants could bring forth the promised Messiah, something impossible for the mixed breed people who made up the majority of the creatures dwelling on earth.

[Did you know that “Atlantis” refers to the Antediluvian world? Noah lived in what the world now calls Atlantis. This was an advanced society… They could and did build the pyramids… Something that we, with all of our technology and equipment, could not do today!]

“As it was in the days of Noah…” gives us the first clue that they are returning. As a matter of fact, they are still with us.

Genesis 6: 4 The Nephilim were on the earth BOTH IN THOSE DAYS AND AFTERWARD, when the sons of God came to the daughters of mankind, who bore children to them. They were the powerful men of old, the famous men.

“In those days” refers to the days of Noah. “and afterward” refers to the time after the flood. We find them in the promised land when the Children of Israel went in.

 Numbers 13:33 We even saw the Nephilim there–the descendants of Anak come from the Nephilim! To ourselves we seemed like grasshoppers, and we must have seemed the same to them.”

God told the Israelites to kill them all, but we know that they did not do that. Goliath and his brothers were Gibborum, sons of the Nephilim. Archaeologists are digging up skeletons and skulls of Gibborum in Peru today. Native Americans in the United States tell of a race of cannibalistic giants, with six fingers and six toes, who once peopled the North American Continent.

More than that, the Illuminati… the Luciferian Elite… the Cabal… whatever you want to call them, the families who run the world today, claim to be Gibborum… descended from the Nephilim. This is why they are so very careful to intermarry… to protect the bloodline. Mayor Von Rothschild made all four of his sons marry first cousins…  This is why the marriage of Prince Charles to Dianna was considered an unpardonable sin… her family is not of Nephilim blood and her children may or may not carry the blood necessary to rule… They are, in their own minds, “The Elect,” those born to rule over the “Useless Eaters.”

This Cabal, and the Reptilian Aliens (demons) with whom they claim to communicate, have ruled the world since the days of Queen Elizabeth the First. If you are interested, check out the life of John Dee, her Court Wizard. (The original guy with the beard and the pointy hat) He rediscovered Black Magic, and the Elite have used it ever since as a means of communication with their precious Reptilian Aliens and the source of the power and authority by which they rule.

To give you an idea of the power of John Dee, not once, but twice, the Spanish sailed huge Armadas to England to conquer her. Queen Elizabeth asked John Dee what to do. He told her not to worry about it and to do nothing. Both times the Armada got within sight of the British on the shore. Both times a huge storm came up and destroyed the Spanish Armada… Think about that one… That power remains with the British Throne and the Cabal that rules America.

That power remains with the British Throne and the Cabal that rules America.

This is where I am going to start telling you things that you may or may not choose to believe…

That Cabal, with their dark satanic powers, is about to collapse and die. Not only that, accompanying that fall will come the full disclosure of the Aliens (Nephilim) who have empowered them and to whom they are related. They are going to be outed and defeated by a new Alliance. The head of that Alliance will become the Antichrist… he is “The Man of Sin.” The miraculous and the Supernatural events that accompany that “Disclosure” are going to be powerful beyond belief… and God himself is going to send  a great delusion so that those who do not now love the truth will be deceived. God says that they will be deceived and that it is He who will cause them to be deceived.

2 Thessalonians 2:11 For this reason God sends them a strong delusion so that they will believe what is false, 12 so that all will be condemned—those who did not believe the truth but enjoyed unrighteousness.

The miraculous and the Supernatural that accompany that “Disclosure” are going to be powerful beyond belief…

But there will be a double disclosure. We will not only find out about the Black Magic and the evil “Aliens” who have empowered the Cabal that has enslaved us, we will find out about the White Magic and the good “Aliens” who have empowered the Alliance that has saved us… Again, God will send a great delusion upon all who have not loved the truth , and they will believe the lie.

Somehow, I believe that the leader of the great alliance that rescues us will be killed in the fight… but he will be resurrected by the leader of the “Good Aliens” who rescue us from the Cabal and the “Evil Aliens” that have enslaved us… and they, the Good Aliens, will be marrying and giving in marriage up until the day that Jesus splits open the Heavens and returns with his Saints to reign.

Revelation 9: 11 They had as their king the angel of the abyss; his name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek he has the name Apollyon.

The Bible has told us what we need to know. Everything must be run by the Scriptures. The Bible does not tell us everything but there are other books and other sources that can add to that knowledge. There are men to whom God is revealing these things in these last days…

I would hope that some of you will check out the things I say here… that you will search for more knowledge and that you will run everything you learn past the Scriptures… Much of what you learn… much of what I have written here, will violate the sacred interpretations of past professors of prophecy. That is unimportant and should be ignored… The only question should be: “Does this violate or agree with Scripture?”

The only question should be: “Does this violate or agree with Scripture?”

I trust that what I have written here, while somewhat based on extrabiblical texts, will do both… it will violate interpretations of Scripture made in the past by venerated theologians and it will agree with and compliment Scripture.

My prayer is that, even if you refuse to believe this now, when it happens, God will jog your memory and you will be aware of the truth and avoid the delusion that will overwhelm and overcome the church…

THE FUTURE OF AMERICA

“Am I crazy? I don’t think so…”

This is the future of America as I see it. It is dark, very dark. Most will not believe me, and I must confess that I might be wrong. I am a watchman… I call things as I see them, and I have more than a little insight. However, I make no claim to be a Prophet and this does not and cannot start with a “Thus saith the Lord…” and no, I am not saying that God told me these things… nonetheless, this is how I see things.

Other than the things clearly prophesied in Scripture, I do not know if these things will actually happen. I am convinced, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that this is the plan of Lucifer and his minions…

  1. I see a soon coming purge, reminiscent of Nazi Germany. I see politicians, including ex-presidents, in jail with their crimes, proven beyond a doubt, published for the world to see…
  2. I see high ranking Intelligence Officials convicted of High Treason and executed.
  3. I see the Democratic Party decimated, their leadership shamed, discredited and Jailed.
  4. I see Liberal Organizations annihilated and destroyed.
  5. I see major universities, including the Ivy League institutions, cleansed of liberal faculty, and students “reeducated.”
  6. I see all Welfare removed and replaced with Public Works Camps and Projects.
  7. I see America taking a strong, military stand against the enemies of Israel.
  8. I see America leading the project to rebuild a Temple for the Jews.
  9. I see all of the leaders of all the Dominionist groups proclaiming Donald Trump a hero.
  10. I see all of the leaders in Protestant, Evangelical, Charismatic and Pentecostal churches and denominations bowing and scraping at the feet of the one whom God sent to rescue America.
  11. I see Pastors and Christians who see through the farce, shot dead in front of their congregations and families.
  12. I see Trump assassinated, laid in state under the Deification of Washington the seventy-two five pointed stars and the goddess who tops the Womb of Isis, known to the uninitiated as the Capitol Dome.
  13. I see Pope Francis praying over him.
  14. I see Mary appearing over him and announcing, “This is my beloved son, in whom I am well pleased.”
  15. I see the spirit of Apollyon/Abaddon entering his body and animating it… faking a resurrection on Worldwide Television.
  16. I see him in Israel the day America/Babylon is nuked and destroyed, “in a single hour…”

Am I crazy? I don’t think so…

ANTICHRIST AS MASHIACH

“Ben Yossef is from Ephraim. Ephraim does not symbolize some modern entity or nation, but represents the 10 tribes of Israel. It is more than possible that Donald Trump is from one of the ten lost tribes, known collectively as Ephraim.”

In the Christian world, we are expecting the Antichrist and the False Prophet. The Jews are expecting two Messiahs, Mashiach ben David and Mashiach ben Yossef. The Jewish descriptions of the two Messiahs match, exactly, the description of the Antichrist and the False Prophet in Christian writings and Scripture.

The very word “Christ” is the Greek translation of the Hebrew word Messiah. Therefore, it is quite valid to write the title Antichrist as Antimessiah… it is the same exact word.

In Jewish thought, the two Messiahs work together to bring the whole world into subjection to Israel and to Yahweh. It is a very big part of the Jewish story that one of the two Mashiachs will be killed and resurrected by the other… Strange but true. Scripture speaks of the Antichrist as being wounded in the head with a fatal blow yet living… How can you miss the connection?

The Jews do not accept the Christian interpretation of the two distinctly different descriptions of the Messiah found in Zechariah. Christians see one Messiah coming twice, the first time as the suffering servant and the second time as the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. The Jews see two different men, one the suffering servant and the other the Great King. By the way, they see them as very human, not God at all… According to Jewish tradition, after their conquest of the world, both of them will grow old and die in Jerusalem.

“Jewish tradition speaks of two redeemers, each one called Mashiach. Both are involved in ushering in the Messianic era. They are Mashiach ben David and Mashiach ben Yossef.

‘The term Mashiach unqualified always refers to Mashiach ben David (Mashiach the descendant of David) of the tribe of Judah. He is the actual (final) redeemer who shall rule in the Messianic age. All that was said in our text relates to him.

‘Mashiach ben Yossef (Mashiach the descendant of Joseph) of the tribe of Ephraim (son of Joseph), is also referred to as Mashiach ben Ephrayim, Mashiach the descendant of Ephraim. He will come first, before the final redeemer, and later will serve as his viceroy.

‘The essential task of Mashiach ben Yossef is to act as precursor to Mashiach ben David: he will prepare the world for the coming of the final redeemer…

‘The principal and final function ascribed to Mashiach ben Yossef is of political and military nature. He shall wage war against the forces of evil that oppress Israel. More specifically, he will do battle against Edom, the descendants of Esau. Edom is the comprehensive designation of the enemies of Israel, and it will be crushed through the progeny of Joseph. Thus it was prophesied of old, “The House of Jacob will be a fire and the House of Joseph a flame, and the House of Esau for stubble.” (Obadiah 1:18): ‘the progeny of Esau shall be delivered only into the hands of the progeny of Joseph.’” (Chabad.org)

Please note, in many Jewish sources, Mashiach ben Yossef is murdered but resurrected by Mashiach ben David and that is how the Jews recognize him as their Mashiach.

When the Rabbis in Israel say that Trump is preparing the way for the Mashiach, they are saying that Trump is, in their opinion, Mashiach Ben Yossef.

“Ben Yossef is from Ephraim. In Ezekiel 37:15-28 God had Ezekiel explain that the northern and southern kingdoms (called Ephraim and Judah) would one day be reunited into one nation again with David as their king. Therefore, Ephraim does not symbolize some modern entity or nation, but represents the 10 tribes of Israel who rebelled after the death of King Solomon and formed the northern kingdom. They were conquered by and absorbed into Assyria about 720 BC. This prophecy began its fulfillment in the re-birth of Israel in 1948 and will be completed in Israel’s Kingdom Age, known as the Millennium.” (gracethrufaith.com)

It is more than possible that Donald Trump is from one of the ten lost tribes, known collectively as Ephraim.

Let us put together what we know and what we think and what might be and come up with a scenario…

DISCLAIMER: This is a possible scenario, not a prophecy. I already know that some will totally ignore this statement, and many more will pass judgment on the article and myself, based on the title alone, having never read anything. Some of those people will call me a “False Prophet.” For the record, I am not a prophet.

OPINION: Ignorance Stinks.

WHAT IF?

  • What if, Trump, in the face of unthinkable opposition, continues to win every battle?
  • What if, he is backed by the Jews who form the world’s most elite class?
  • What if he is supernaturally assisted and directed by the forces of Lucifer, and is indeed the long awaited Mashiach ben Yossef?
  • What if the light seen in Trump by the Dominionists and the wishful thinkers is not the Glory of God but the Light of Lucifer?
  • What if Trump, assisted by the Elite and the demons, wins over the Left?
  • What if a populace, tired by the extremes of liberalism and frightened by the influx of Muslims begins to see Trump as a hero?
  • What if, on word from their Elite owners, all of the Networks take a sudden and drastic turn to the right?
  • What if Israel, championed by Trump becomes the hero of Americans?
  • What if the Liberal Elite, with a little help from their gods, converts and follows Trump… Perhaps not all but a majority?
  • What if Trump actually joins with Israel and defeats the descendants of Esau and the Ishmaelites?
  • What if Trump, as Mashiach ben Yosef, is assassinated during the victory ceremony in Jerusalem and a man, Mashiach ben David, touches him and he rises as if from the dead?

What do we know?

  • The Biblical Antichrist is wounded with a mortal wound and yet lives.
  • Mashiach ben Yossef is killed and resurrected.
  • Mashiach ben Yossef is a Political/Military leader who prepares the way for Mashiach ben David.
  • Trump is the hero of Israel.
  • Israel is renaming places and buildings for Trump.
  • Major Rabbis are publicly proclaiming Trump as Mashiach ben Yossef.
  • Mashiach ben Yossef comes from Ephraim, the Ten Lost Tribes, not Judah…
  • Trump is not from Judah but could very well be from Ephraim.
  • We know that I am not prophesying, simply thinking on paper.

Could Trump be Mashiach ben Yossef? Could he be the forerunner for Mashiach ben David, the Antichrist? The answer to those questions is an unequivocal YES!

Eyes open!

Please think. Nothing is more dangerous than dismissing ideas without thought based on prejudice and preconceived notions… People who dismiss this without thought and prayerful consideration deserve to be deceived…

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…

SABBATH OF RETURN

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!

David…

BIRTH PAINS, REVELATION 12 AND SEPTEMBER 23…

Birth involves pain and blood. Following the sign of September 23, the Church should expect to suffer pain and bloodshed. The Dragon (now blocked out on the NASA site) is there and waiting. There seem to be as many ideas on the specifics as there are Christians. I am not going to guess the specifics, but there is massive agreement that Pain and Bloodshed follow September 23, 2017.

Revelation 12:

A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of 12 stars on her head. She was pregnant and cried out in labor and agony as she was about to give birth. 3 Then another sign appeared in heaven: There was a great fiery red dragon having seven heads and 10 horns, and on his heads were seven diadems. His tail swept away a third of the stars in heaven and hurled them to the earth. And the dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that when she did give birth he might devour her child. 5 But she gave birth to a Son—a male who is going to shepherd all nations with an iron scepter—and her child was caught up to God and to His throne. 6 The woman fled into the wilderness, where she had a place prepared by God, to be fed there for 1,260 days.

BIRTH PAINS:

Birth involves pain and blood. Following the sign of September 23, the Church should expect to suffer pain and bloodshed. The Dragon (now blocked out on the NASA site) is there and waiting. There seem to be as many ideas on the specifics as there are Christians. I am not going to guess the specifics, but there is massive agreement that Pain and Bloodshed follow September 23, 2017.

THE DRAGON:

The dragon tries to devour the Child (Jesus) but is unsuccessful. The Child is taken up into Heaven and the woman goes to a place in the wilderness, that God has prepared for her. Pretribbers want to say that this is the Church, taken off to Heaven. Please note that the Woman escapes into “The Wilderness.” If you want to call Heaven a “wilderness” go ahead. I believe that this is speaking of Israel but I do not claim to “Know.” The Dragon is the Devil and he is cast to earth (That makes him mad!)

Revelation 12:

The Dragon Thrown Out of Heaven

Then war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon. The dragon and his angels also fought, but he could not prevail, and there was no place for them in heaven any longer. 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.

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. 2 Many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake, some to eternal life, and some to shame and eternal contempt. 3 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.

Daniel places the Resurrection of the dead and the Rapture at the time of the War between Michael and Satan. Does that mean on that day, during that time period or at the end of that time period? I do not know, I suspect that it is during or at the end of that time period and not on the day it starts.

Daniel speaks of a war. It seems, from what John writes, that that war starts on the day of the sign of the Sign of the Son of Man. That would be the 23rd of September 2017. Wars do not happen in a day. How long will that conflict take and on what day will the Devil and his angels be cast down? I do not know. Could it be on September 23? Yes, but I do not think so.

Daniel speaks of weeks. I am of the school that believes that the first half of that week happened during the ministry of Jesus. Three and a half years from his Baptism to his Ascension. That would leave three and a half years, not seven. That might be wrong but the seven years comes out of the Pre-Trib Doctrine and the idea that the Christians will be in Heaven for a seven-year Marriage Supper… That is not necessarily Scriptural.

NOTE:

At any rate, part of the things happening in Revelation 12 happened at the first coming of Jesus and part will be completed this time. Think of it as one sign, split into two time periods, not two separate signs. Jesus comes twice and so does the sign. The first time, the sign signaled the birth of Jesus. This time the sign signals the beginning of the end. The first time, there were 33 years between his birth and his ascension. This time, there are either three and a half years or seven years between the sign and Armageddon. Could it be even as much as 33 years? Anything is possible but I believe that we are looking at seven years at the most.

I have even thought that it is possible that the first three and a half years are the war with Michael and Satan, and that the Great Tribulation could be three and a half years, starting the day that Satan is cast to earth. That is a possibility. The three and a half years of war in the Heavens could produce many wild and crazy things there… things that Jesus spoke of concerning our times.

WARNING:

The Jews were fully convinced of, and all their books spoke of, a Messiah, who would arrive with the sign of the Son of Man. This Messiah would ride into Jerusalem on a White Horse, raise an army and route the Romans, restoring sovereignty to Israel and reestablishing David’s Throne. They had many long and complicated arguments by which they manipulated the Scriptures and made them say that; not unlike the arguments for a Pre-Trib Rapture.

A huge problem we have today is that the Pre-Tribbers have thrown the idea of a Rapture at every date and every sign. They did that so forcefully and so successfully that people believed them. When the sign came and there was no rapture, they threw out the sign, deciding that if there was no rapture, the sign was not a sign. The Sign however, was valid, things did happen, it was just never about the Rapture.

The Pre-Trib Rapture has become our “Messiah on a White Horse.” The Jews were so convinced of their White Horse Hero, that when the sign came and there was no Rider on a White Horse, they decided that the sign was phony. Jesus was born in Bethlehem but they never found him… they were too busy crying over the Messiah who did not come. When September 23 comes and goes and there is no rapture, tens of thousands will take to Facebook to call the sign a fake. The sign isn’t a fake, the Doctrine of a Pre-Trib Rapture is a false doctrine…

I do not know if we will see anything on the 23rd. What I do know is that a war in the Heavens will start that day and that war will have grave consequences on the earth… Everything, following that date will get much worse, very quickly. I would not be surprised if something happens, on that day, that leads to a nuclear conflict and the prophesied “One Hour Destruction” of Babylon… But, it will be a process as much as or more than an event. Harvey followed the Eclipse. Destruction follows the Sign of the Son of Man.”

THESE ARE LABOR PAINS; THE BABY IS COMING!

THINKING ABOUT THE USS JOHN S. McCAIN.

I remember, back in 1979, watching as our ship took out the last 32’ of the pier at the Naval Base at Guantanamo, Cuba.

Short, easy story: When we arrived, we were told that there would be a three hour wait for a tug boat. The young, wealthy (His car, house and family told that story) Lt. Cmdr., on his first Command Assignment, responded, “Dammit, I’ll park it myself!” You cannot “park” a single screw, DEG (Rebaptized “FFG”) yourself… Lessons learned.

Attitude will kill you.

I was not there, on the USS McCain, but I can imagine the scene on the Bridge… I will talk about that in a minute…

I heard a story, a long time ago, about a Navy Captain, who saw a light in the distance. He promptly picked up the Radio and demanded that the other ship change course. “No Sir!” came the reply. “I am the Captain of a U. S. Navy Battleship and I am telling you to change course!!!” The reply came, “I am Seaman Jones, and this is the Lighthouse at Deadman’s Point!”

The Captain changed course and avoided disaster at the last minute…

The Captain of the USS John S. McCain, was not so fortunate.

No one on the McCain knew that this was an act of terror and that the tanker was targeting them on purpose… but it was.

Again, I was not there. The Sailors who were on that Bridge and in the Combat Information Center, below, are forbidden to talk… even with their spouses and families. The Navy will protect its own. In the lack of their Testimony, let me give an educated guess…

The Destroyer was running blacked out, no outside lights. They saw the tanker but it appeared, on radar, that it would pass clear of them. The Captain of the Tanker, with malicious intention, changed course. The man on the Radar called the Bridge and announced the change… “CBDR” he called… (Constant Bearing, Decreasing Range…) The Boatswain’s mate on the Bridge, called out his agreement. That means, “If we don’t take some kind of evasive action, they are going to hit us…”

They could have turned on the lights… perhaps they did, I don’t know. They could have changed speed or heading and evaded the collision. A Navy Destroyer is many times faster and more maneuverable than a tanker… That I know. If I was told that the Destroyer could not have evaded that collision, I would have to conclude that I was being told a lie.

The only conclusion that I can reach… and the one I will believe until or unless I am proven wrong, is that the same attitude that took out the pier at Guantanamo and the same attitude demonstrated by the Captain in that old war story, came into play here. “I have the right of way and I’ll be damned if I am going to change course.” Oh, yes, I am certain that there was desperate maneuvering in the final moments, but it was too late.

The fact that the Captain was relieved tells me that I am right. The Fact that the Admiral was relieved (and that this has happened four times in a year) tell me that the Captain was acting under ignorant and Machismo based orders…
