This will be a long post. LOL. Enjoy!!
Twelve Reasons Why, the Church must get Ready in the Months Ahead.
I personally believe the Great Tribulation could start in the coming year of 2016. When I am done explaining the twelve reasons why we must prepare now, I believe you will pray that I am right.
I am going to share many coming events that will happen soon, wither or not the Great Tribulation starts in the coming year or seven years from now. If the start of the Great Tribulation is kicked down the road for seven years, I believe that most Americans will die before the Great Tribulation even starts.
1. America will soon see the judgment of God.
A. We have made money our God, God Says we must not have any other god’s before him, Our God is a jealous God.
B. We have slaughtered over 60 million babies, even harvesting body parts from near term babies.
C. Our courts have declared that what God says in evil is good and what is good is wrong.
D. We are turning our backs on Israel.
2. We are now seeing growing numbers of terrorist attacks around the world that will soon be coming to our cities in America.
When the bombs went off at the Boston Marathon, the city of Boston went into lockdown. All communication was shut down, no internet, no telephones. Martial Law was declared.
The Jades Helm exercises were done to prepare for the terrorist events that will soon come to America. Our Government is preparing for what is coming, Are You?
If we look at what is happening in Paris France following the recent terrorist attacks, we will see the model of what is to come to America.
The borders were shut down. No travel in or out of the country. All Airlines shut down and no airplanes allowed in Frances airspace. In Paris, martial law was declared and no one could even walk the streets to go home.
Imagine these steps happening in America. Economic commerce would come to a standstill. We are entering the Christmas season as I write this. Most of Americas business happens during the weeks ahead. If this was disrupted, it would cause many businesses to fail.
“GOD ISN’T FIXING THIS!!!” (This article was recently sent to me.)
Let me share with you today some thoughts in no random order about this latest act of terrorism on our soil by Islam.
-The Islamic terrorists who committed this latest massacre in the name of their false religion had turned their home into a bomb factory. The male had traveled in the past year to Saudi Arabia and Pakistan, and brought his wife back from there on a fiancée visa.
-As I have stated many times, Islam is not now, never was, and never will be about peace. It is about domination and turning the world into an Islamic state, purged of all non-Muslims. That has been their stated goal for the entire 1400 years of their existence, and has never changed. ALL practicing Muslims believe this, want this, and are 100% in agreement with jihad and all actions necessary to make this a reality. DO NOT BUY INTO THE LIES THAT CLAIM ANYTHING DIFFERENT!!!
-These acts of Islamic terror on our soil will not cease, only increase! The FBI has active investigations in all 50 states! It is not a matter of if, only when the next act of Islamic terror takes place. The only answer from a national security standpoint is what I shared years ago. We need to shut down all mosques, and start deporting any Muslims we even suspect have ties to terror. Europe has been decimated and in a few years will be destroyed by the Islamic invasion into their various countries. Islam is at war with us, but they are the only ones actively fighting that war!
-As I have stated many times, we have a pro-Islamic President and administration that along with the full support of the mainstream media, acts as a sympathizer for the false religion of Islam. Even after this act of terror in California, the President stated that ISIS is not a real threat to the United States and refused to call what happened what it is, Islamic terror! He even refuses to admit we are at war with Islam! He will undoubtedly conclude that like the Ft. Hood massacre by Muslim terrorist Army Major Nadal Hassan, that this latest massacre will be “workplace violence.”
-With the full support of his foreign affairs adviser Susan Rice, and domestic affairs adviser Valerie Jarrett who has close ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, the Obama administration has managed to fast track immigration of nearly 1 million Muslims into the country over the past 5 years. The administration has also infiltrated all parts of our Federal Government with Muslims, including the DOJ responsible for the protection of our homeland.
-In the coming days, look for the President begin signing Executive Orders to try and chip away at the 2nd Amendment right to bear arms. -By refusing to take meaningful actions to destroy ISIS, the real legacy of President Obama will be his incompetent and failed foreign policy that has destabilized and created chaos in the Middle East giving rise to ISIS, while at the same time totally ignoring the genocide of Christians throughout the Middle East, wiping out Christian groups who have existed since nearly the beginning of the church 2,000 years ago.
-The complicit media bears much blame and responsibility for these acts of Islamic terror. When they found out the California massacre was committed by Muslims, they quickly went into defense mode to try and protect Islam, unlike last week when they were giddy as the Planned Parenthood shooter turned out to be a white person so they could advance the false narrative he was a pro-life Christian. It turned out he was neither but they didn’t take the time to broadcast that fact.
-Sadly, 50% of our population has NO CLUE what is going on in the world and are horribly uninformed. 40% mildly informed, and the bulk of their information comes from mainstream media sources. So their views are largely shaped by the media’s presentation of different issues based on their agenda. This is why so much of the population is sympathetic to Islam and has bought the lie it is a “religion of peace.” Don’t forget, it is the influence of the media that mainstreamed the radical homosexual agenda, made same-sex marriage legal, has allowed the slaughter of innocent babies and the selling of baby parts to be accepted by over half of our nation, while demonizing Christians and mocking God and the Bible.
-Law enforcement, local, state, and federal, did an amazing job dealing with the horrific scene they came upon in California Wednesday. It is sickening how this current administration has purposely demonized police across this nation, those who bravely put on the uniform each day and put their life on the line to serve and protect the citizens of their community.
-CAIR, the Muslim advocacy group that bullies and intimidates those who dare to tell the truth about the false religion of Islam, held a press conference Wednesday night before any real facts were even known. That could have only happened with the involvement of the Obama administration who works closely with this group that has ties to terror groups. It was a hollow attempt to distance themselves from what everyone already knew was the latest act of Islamic terror on our soil.
-Like in so many of these acts of Islamic terror, in the aftermath neighbors always talk about how nice these terrorists were. The co-workers of the Muslim terrorist gave he and his wife a baby shower after the birth of their 6 month old daughter. He was given great latitude by his job to practice his faith. In the end, he had no problem slaughtering his co-workers like lambs. Islam does not commit these acts of terror because of any other reason than this is what their false religion from hell teaches them.
-A neighbor of the terrorists said they saw strange activity in their garage many nights, late into the night. They said they saw numerous middle eastern men coming and going. They also said they saw many, many deliveries of large packages. They thought they should call the police and report what they were seeing, but decided not to for fear of being labeled a bigot, racist, xenophobe, so they said nothing! THIS IS THE RESULT OF THE MEDIA RUSHING TO LABLE ANYONE WHO TELLS THE TRUTH ABOUT ISLAM AS DEMONIZING THIS “WORLDWIDE RELIGION OF PEACE,” AND INTIMIDATING THEM INTO SILENCE!
What we are witnessing is simply the judgment of God falling on this nation for our sins and rebellion to our Creator. We are as much to blame, since we have abandoned the marketplace for the comfort, safety, and profitability of the Christian subculture we created over 40 years ago that virtually all of Christendom operates in. Like the OT priests and the priest at the time of Jesus, most pastors and Christian leaders have created their own fiefdom they self-perpetuate each year by preaching to the choir. They hide from the marketplace and the non-Christian media since they simply want to be left alone in the peace of profits of their “ministry.” So the lost masses in the marketplace have been left to the wolves of Satan to devour.
Our nation is DONE and will crumble under God’s judgment unless we rise up, turn back to the Almighty. Our time is up, and it is time followers of Christ rise up and lead this nation back to God and His Truth…our only hope…our only answer!!!
Have We Miscalculated the Beginning
of the Current Shemitah Cycle?
By John Shorey
Many Bible scholars in the last few years were teaching that the next Shemitah cycle would start on the feast of Rosh Hashanah, or Feast of Trumpets in September of 2015. These same scholars who made the connection that the next Shemitah cycle would start in September were of the Pre-Trib position and having that perspective; it would only make sense that the coming seven year cycle would start during Feast of Trumpets preceded with the rapture of the church. Some of these same scholars even said that if the rapture did not happen in September of 2015, then the rapture would not happen for another seven-year cycle or two.
I want to make a case from God’s Word that the new year and beginning of the Shemitah cycle does not start until the spring of 2016, the time of planting and new beginnings. The Jews recognize two calendars, the Civil Calendar and the Sacred Calendar. The Civil Calendar starts in fall and the Sacred Calendar starts in the spring. The Civil Calendar has become accepted in Jewish tradition as the celebrated New Year, Rosh Hashanah, but I will show using God’s Word that the true Jewish New Year is to be counted from the spring, at Passover.
Most of the Messianic Jewish Rabbi’s hold to the Pre-Trib rapture position. I have heard Jewish Rabbi’s explain that it is Jewish Tradition that after the wedding, the married couple would have a honeymoon for seven days and this is part of their evidence that the rapture happens just before that last seven days of Daniels Seventh week. This Jewish Tradition would lead them to believe the rapture would happen in the fall at the time of the Feast of Trumpets. Also, most Pre-Trib, Mid-week and Post-Trib rapture teachers agree that the rapture will happen at the last trumpet of the Feast of Trumpets. Those who hold to either the (seven year)Pre-Trib or (seven year) Post Trib would agree that the Seven Year cycle leading to the rapture would need to start in September during the Feast of Trumpets.
In my book, The Window of the Lord’s Return. I build a strong case for what I call a mid-week rapture, the middle of the last seven years before the Lord’s Return. With a mid-week position, the seven year shemitah cycle leading to the rapture would need to start in the spring, so that after 3.5 years of Great Tribulation or as it is called in Daniel and Revelation , Forty-two months of War on the Saints, the rapture would happen in September during the Feast of Trumpets.
The sacred calendar based on God’s Word proves to me that the beginning of any year and the beginning of the Shemitah cycle has to occur in the spring. If this can be shown from Scripture, then we must acknowledge that God’s Word trumps the Jewish Tradition of recognizing the New Year as Rosh Hashanah. I will show below from God’s Word that what I am saying is backed by God’s Word.
Exodus 12:1-3 “The Lord said to Moses and Aaron in Egypt, “This month is to be for you the first month, the first month of your year. Tell the whole community of Israel that on the tenth day of this month each man is to take a lamb for his family, one for each household.”
This verse is God telling Moses that the month of the Passover is to be the first month of their year. What is interesting about this is :
1. This is in the spring, seed time, the time of new beginnings. This year the Passover begins April 22nd, and Sept 22nd is the first day of autumn or fall, Harvest time and the time of the Feast of Trumpets.
2. The Passover in Egypt was when God sent his angel of death to all the unrepentant in Egypt. Last September we were expecting judgment to fall in September but it didn’t really happen. Since the scripture from Exodus written above, and the scripture from Leviticus I show below both support that the new seven year Shemitah cycle begins this spring and it will be at the time of the Passover that we will see events of Gods judgment?
The second verse that shows that the true first month of the year starts in the month of the Passover is found in,
Leviticus 23:4,5 “These are the Lord’s appointed feasts, the sacred assemblies you are to proclaim at their appointed times: The Lord’s Passover begins at twilight on the fifteenth day of the first month.”
When you take into account what these scriptures are saying from a Mid-week rapture perspective, it makes a lot of sense that the next seven year Shemitah cycle did not start in September of 2015 but it will start in April of 2016. If the next Shemitah cycle and the beginning of the Great Tribulation starts April, 2016 and you go to the time of the feast of Trumpets at the end of September of 2019, This timeframe adds up to Three years and six months, equaling the forty-two months of War on the Saints. If you will read my recent study called, “Fresh illumination showing a Mid-week rapture”, this study proves from a Greek word study that the Great Tribulation is only three and a half years long, then the rapture occurs and then three and a half years of the Wrath of God begins.
There is something special about this new Shemitah cycle we are entering. It is called a Super Shemitah. Every seven Shemitah cycles brings us to the year of Jubilee, which is the fiftieth year. The way this works is; when you complete seven, seven year cycles it equals forty-nine years. Then the first year of the next Shemitah cycle is the fiftieth year and thus the year of Jubilee.
Over a year ago I was struggling with, “How a new Shemitah cycle starting in September of 2015 could maintain the fifty year pattern of Jubilee in the last one hundred years. Using a start date of September of 2015 for the new year would mark the beginning of the year of Jubilee, but this starting date in 2015 would not bring us to the previous pattern of 50 year cycles which should bring us to 2017.
Why is this important? It has been recognized that in 1917 the Balfore Declaration granted Israel the right to regain their land and become a nation. This event was recognized as a year of Jubilee. Then fifty years later in 1967, when the Six Day War occurred, it looked like Israel would be over run and destroyed. Instead Israel had a great victory and gained more of their land. Thus 1967 marked another Year of Jubilee.
Based on these Jubilee events the next year of Jubilee should be 2017. If we entered the Jubilee year in September of 2015, that year would stretch to September of 2016, falling short of 2017. If instead we recognize God’s Word shows the new year measured from a spring Passover and thus begins in April of 2016, the year of Jubilee would stretch to April of 2017. This would give a window in 2017 for a Jubilee event to happen in Israel that would be similar to the events that occurred in 1917 and 1967. This would maintain the pattern of a Jubilee event happening in 2017.
I have written a recent study called, ”Has the Lord delayed His Coming?” In this study I share the scripture that says, “Unless I shorten those days no one would survive, for the sake of the elect I will shorten those days.” I point out in this study that we have a destiny with the timing of the rapture at the time of the Feast of Trumpets at the end of September. Therefore the shortening of days has to happen before the Great Tribulation starts. I had thought that last September would be the beginning of the birth pain and would usher in events that would have added months of distress before the Great Tribulation started in the spring of 2016. By God’s Grace those days have been shortened.
I believe we are in the time of the shortening of the days. If this is so, what a shame that this miscalculation for the beginning of the Shemitah cycle has put the church to sleep. At a time when people think we are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, thinking good times are coming back, they will soon discover that the light they are seeing is instead another train coming and we are about to have a head-on collision. After reading this study I recommend that you read my study called, “Has the Lord delayed His Coming?” Then to pull it all together I would recommend you read my recent study called , “Fresh illumination showing a Mid-week rapture.”
Dear Prophetic Friends,
I have just finished what may be my most important study that I have delivered to date. Lying spirits are confusing the prophets. Some prophets are saying great things for the future of America. Others have been warning of soon coming judgment and destruction to America and the world. Whose report do we believe? The book of Jeremiah relays the story when the King did not want to accept the words of the Prophet Jeremiah. God allowed lying spirits to give the King words of false hope. God’s true word prevailed.
It is happening again. The church is accepting the words of false hope. This is a must read study. God has already sent his true messengers to warn the church. Soon coming events will now happen suddenly without any further warning. If you listen to the wrong word you will be caught by surprise and it will be too late to prepare.
I will post this study below and if it does not fit, I will post in two parts. These are the days that we must pray for discernment and spiritual common sense, that we can know the truth.

Whose Report Will You Believe?
John Shorey 6-8-2016
A few weeks ago I heard a sermon on Peter arguing with Jesus about Jesus leaving the earth after his death. Jesus turned to him and said “Get behind me satan” Peter was in denial about Jesus going away. It is interesting that Jesus said about Peter that, “Upon this rock I will build my church.” The thought struck me that Peter was symbolic of the future church and we that future church are almost in a sort of denial that Jesus is coming back soon. We know Jesus is coming back but most Christians are not interested in his coming this soon. It reminds me of a saying I tell people, “Everyone wants to go to heaven but no one wants to die to get there.”
During the past two years 2014, and 2015 we have seen many signs of Christs Return. The Bible says we would see signs in the sun, moon and the stars. We witnessed the Four Blood Moons. Many prophetic voices in the last few years have given strong warnings of Christs soon coming, with many warnings of great devastation coming to America and the world. I see the Warnings from Jonathan Cahn I as the greatest prophetic warnings of our time. When you study the history of the Blood Moons, you will see the pattern of great events against Israel did not happen for one to two years after the Fourth Blood Moon. We are not even one year from the forth Blood Moon. If the Pattern holds, an event that will look like the coming destruction of Israel won’t happen until the end of 2016 or into 2017. When you look at world events concerning Israel, this time frame makes sense.
When it was perceived that great events did not happen, many Christians believed we missed it and their prepping stalled with the thinking shifted to the thought that Christ will not be coming for at least another seven or more years.
I believe we are in the shortening of days. Not a shortening of the Seven years that Daniel spoke about. But a shortening of the Birth Pains that will happen before the Tribulation starts. Jesus said in Matthew 24, “If those days would not be shorten no one would survive, but for the sake of the Elect, I will shorten those days. I believe we should be putting out a great effort to prepare and help others see what is about to happen.
Is this what is happening? No! Many prophetic voices are now saying that happy days are just around the corner. America will be great again; Judgement is not coming to America. How is it that some prophets are still warning that God’s judgment is just around the corner while other prophets are saying the opposite? WHOSE REPORT WILL YOU BELIEVE? BOTH CANNOT BE RIGHT.
The Bible teaches that we should test the spirits of the prophets to discern if their message is from God. You may ask, how do we do this? In a nutshell discerning the truth is twofold, common sense and praying for spiritual discernment.
I recently hear a prophecy that many are buying into. It is called the “Trump Prophecy”. I heard it air on Tru-News. I will share a few points that were made in this prophecy and share why we can know that this is a false Prophecy. Please don’t judge my confidence in this statement until you hear me out. First I will list a number of points made in this Prophecy.
1. Donald Trump would get into the race for President and will come from behind to win the Presidency.
2. Obama would spend Billions to stay in office and all this money will be to no avail as he will lose
3. Donald Trump will be Americas Netanyahu.
4. Judgment will not come on America.
5. America will return to greatness under Trumps leadership.
6. The dollar will rise to the most powerful world currency.
I could list more but this will be enough for me to make my point. To start off I will say that this prophecy was first penned in 2011, at this time Donald Trump was considering getting into the race and if he had it would have had to be like a race horse coming from behind as he would have had a late start. The author of this prophecy admitted that when Donald Trump did not get into the race, he thought he had missed it.
Now look at my second point, Obama spending billions to stay in office in 2016. This was true for the 2012 election, He did spend billions to stay in office and the money was not wasted because he won the election. This point alone will show why I see this was a false prophecy in 2012 and is still a false prophecy in 2016. Obama is not spending billions of dollars to stay in office for the 2016 election season. He cannot campaign and has no way to spend billions of dollars to stay in office in 2016. I have said that I believe Obama will stay in office by canceling the election during a time of martial law. I believe God showed me in 2010, that Obama would lead America into the Great Tribulation. This meant that he had to stay in office in 2012 and he did. Now it could mean that he will stay in office in 2016 by Martial Law. I still believe this will happen. Glenda Jackson is adamant that this will be the case. And here is my point, If Obama stays in office by declaring a national emergency and martial Law before the election of 2016, Obama does not have to spend a dollar, let alone billions to stay in office. What I see is this prophetic message missed it in 2012 and you cannot apply this prophecy to this coming time. I will show further reasons below why I believe this to be the case.
Let’s look at another point. America would not come under God’s judgment. My best response to this would be, If this is true, then what I considered the most important prophetic warning of our generation has just been shown to be false. Whose report are you going to believe, the warning of the Harbinger by Jonathan Cahn or the message of hope by an untested prophet?
Another point made was that our economy and dollar would become the strongest in the world. If this is true then many economic experts and warnings of a coming collapse must be false. This would mean that Michael Snider is wrong, how can they both be right?
Whose report do you want to believe the report of an untested prophet or the report of time tested men and women of God like Jonathan Cahn, Perry Stone, Mark Biltz, and Glenda Jackson. Glenda Jackson prophesied Ronald Reagans attempted assignation a week before it happened. She is still adamant that Obama will stay in office by declaring martial law. Think about this word of prophecy from Glenda Jackson. Obama has spent billions to be able to track every email, phone call, and dollars spent by all Americans, He has armed police forces with military weaponry all across America. He has closed door meetings every month with the leading countries of the world. He has been taking steps that convinces me he has no intention of leaving office. This time right now is the most ripe time in history for the globalist to make their move to cause an incident that will require a new global currency and solution to fix the world’s problems. If Donald Trump will not play by their rules, I don’t see any way that the powers that be will allow him to be seated as our next president.
So this brings me to my most important point in this study. Why are we hearing two opposing messages from the Prophets? The answer is found in the Old Testament. Jeremiah warned that prophets would tell lies in God’s name. I will show why I see this is happening now.
Jeremiah 23 “Do not listen to what the prophets are prophesying to you. They fill you with false hopes.”
(From this point on I will putting much of my comments in bold type to separate the many Bible verses I will be writing out.)
There is a story in the Old Testament books of Kings and Jeremiah, where the King of Israel kept the Prophet Jerimiah locked up in the dungeon and sometimes in a muddy pit that may have been like a septic tank. The king would bring Jeremiah up and ask for a Word from God. The King was looking for a positive message but Jeremiah always gave messages of warning of impending disaster coming to Israel. Finally the King would bring in other prophets and God allowed lying spirits to give false messages to the King and the people.
1Kings 22: 22-23, “I will go out and be a lying spirit in the mouths of all his prophets. So now the Lord has put a lying spirit in the mouths of all these prophets of yours. The Lord has decreed disaster for you.”
The King did not want to hear that God had decreed disaster for Israel and the King, so finally God gave the King the message he wanted to hear. A message of false hope. I believe this is what is happening now, God is sending a spirit to confuse many prophets with a massage of false hope. God sent his true prophets in recent years to warn his people, but many are rejecting a message of judgment and the soon coming of our Lord Jesus. I believe most of the signs of His coming have already been given. Many of the prophets who have had God’s true warnings are now being shunned. After I share this next portion from the book of Jeremiah I will show how God is now warning that when the big one hits the fan, it will be so sudden that people will not be able to react fast enough to get ready, it will be too late.
Jeremiah 23:21-22 “I did not send these prophets, yet they have run with their message, I did not speak to them, yet they have prophesied. But if they had stood in my council. They would have proclaimed my Words to my people and would have turned them from their evil ways and from their evil deeds.”
Jer. 23:25 “I have heard what the prophets say, who prophecy lies in my name. They say, ‘I had a dream! I had a dream! How long will this continue in the hearts of these lying prophets? Who prophecy the delusions of their own minds?’
Jer 23:30-32 “Therefore declares the Lord, “ I am against the prophets who steal from one another, words supposedly from me. Yes declares the Lord, “I am against the prophets who wag their own tongues and yet declare, “The Lord Declares” Indeed, I am against those who prophecy false dreams, declares the Lord.” They tell them and lead my people astray with their reckless lies. Yet I did not send them or appoint them. They do not benefit these in the least. “Declares the Lord.”
I mentioned earlier that I believe that God’s prophetic warnings have slowed down. Instead we are hearing messages of false hope. I believe God is allowing this because this is what we want to hear. Recently Heidi Bakker had a vision that was a bit unnerving. I had the opportunity in 2015 to meet Heidi Bakker while I was with Sid Roth for an Interview. Sid was doing a show with Heidi Bakker that same day. Heidi Bakker is a missionary to the starving children of Africa. From what I could tell, her ministry does not focus on End Times messages of warning. Yet, God in a vision showed her affluent Americans with fine cloths and fancy cars waiting in line to get a cup of soup. She asked the Lord, “How can this be that these affluent people would be in such need?” The Lord told her that it was a suddenly. An event would happen so fast without warning that even the rich could not buy their way out of this coming trouble. This would mean that it would happen fast and without warning. God has already given us his warnings. Some have heeded them and prepared, others have their heads in the sand. It is a shame that many were preparing and have pulled back. When the suddenly happens. They will have great regrets. Knowing they had time to finish preparing but pulled back. Unfilled propane tanks, full septic tanks, empty or no water tanks. They didn’t buy all the needed solar and other equipment that they intended to get, but now it is too late because God already gave us the warnings, now we are facing the suddenly.
There have been many prophetic warnings that America will face a similar fate as Israel. America a God covenant nation has broken our covenant with God in a similar pattern as Israel and when you add our other failures as a God covenant nation, such as Abortions, accepting the Homosexual agenda and taking steps to divide Israel, I just don’t see a way out of the judgment of God on this nation. The following verses from Jeremiah illustrates the point I am making, about America breaking its covenant with God as Israel did.
Jeremiah 22: 6-9 “For this is what the Lord says about the place of the King of Judah: “Though you are like Gilead to me, like the summit of Lebanon, I will surely make you like a desert, like towns not inhabited. I will send destroyers against you. Each man with his weapons and they will cut up your fine cedar beams and throw them into the fire.” People from many nations will pass by this city and will ask one another. Why has the Lord done such a thing to this great city?” (And the answer will be.) “Because they have forsaken the covenant of the Lord their God and have worshiped and served other gods.”
When a nation has passed the tipping point for judgment, the following verses from Jeremiah speaks of judgment coming to a formerly godly nation.
Jeremiah 14:9-14, “You are among us O’Lord and we bear your name: do not forsake us!”
(This is what the Lord says about this people.)
“They greatly love to wander: They do not restrain their feet, so the Lord does not accept them: He will now remember their wickedness and punish them for their sins.” “Then the Lord said to me, “do not pray or the well-being of this people. Although they fast, I will not listen to their cry: though they offer burnt offerings and grain offerings, I will not accept them. Instead I will destroy them with the sword, famine and plague.”
“Then the Lord said to me, “The prophets are prophesying lies in my name. I have not sent them or appointed them or spoken to them. They are prophesying to you false visions, divinations, idolatries and delusions of their own minds. Therefore, this is what the Lord says about those who are prophesying in my name: I did not send them, yet they are saying, “No sword or famine will touch this land.” Those same prophets will perish by sword and famine.”
The next verse speaks of the judgment coming on Israel. America a covenant nation before God has followed the same pattern of sin that brought judgment on Israel: now as the Harbinger, has warned, America is ripe for judgment.
Jer. 14:16, “And the people they are prophesying to will be thrown out into the streets of Jerusalem because of the famine and the sword. There will be no one to bury them or their wives, their sons or their daughters. I will pour out on them the calamity they deserve.”
We have seen many prophetic words concerning the invasion of America. I believe the time for such an invasion is soon. Under our current leadership our military has been downsized to its weakest point in decades. It’s almost as if our military has been dumbed down. Many top brass leaders and even Generals have been forced into retirement or fired. There has been much talk about a potential EMP attack, either by cyber, from a bomb in space or even a solar Coronial Mass Ejection. David Wilkerson in his book, Set the Trumpet to Thy Mouth, outlines the destruction of America. When I found this book in my pocket on the night of the first Blood Moon, It was in those two dog eared pages that David Wilkerson outlines the destruction of America. “The great holocaust (Destruction) follows an economic collapse in America. The enemy will make its move when we are weak and helpless.” An EMP event will certainly leave America weak and helpless. It is interesting that I was led to find David Wilkerson’s book and this prophecy on the night of the first Blood Moon. Could it be that this prophecy will be fulfilled according to the pattern of Blood Moon events as seen in history? If that is the case, could we see America’s destruction and invasion, one to two years following the fourth Blood Moon in September of 2015?
In closing I will share from the book of Jeremiah where the destruction of Babylon is described. There are numerous references in the Bible concerning Babylon and Mystery Babylon. There are aspects to the following destruction of Babylon that seems to point to a future event that could be describing America. What is interesting about this account of destruction is that the first sentence, “Come out of her my people!” is the same wording that is repeated in the Book of Revelation concerning the destruction of Mystery Babylon.
Jeremiah 51:45-48, “Come out of her my people!, Run for your lives! Run from the fierce Anger of the Lord. Do not lose heart or be afraid when rumors are heard in the land: One rumor comes this year and, another the next, rumors of violence in the land and of rulers against rulers. For the time will surely come when I will punish the idols of Babylon: Her whole land will be will be discarded and her slain will lie fallen within her.” “Then heaven and earth and all that is in them will shout for joy over Babylon. For out of the North destroyers will attack her.”
In closing I will make a couple of comments concerning this last verse’s above. The portion that says, “Rumors of violence in the land and rulers against rulers” This is a good description of America this year. We keep thinking terrorist events could hit at any time. And in this election year politicians are attacking each other link no other time in history.
This last closing comment concerns the statement, “For out of the North destroyers will attack her.” We know that this scripture is talking about the destruction of Babylon. It is interesting that its enemy will come from the north. When Israel is attacked in the battle of Gog and Ma-Gog, Ezekiel 38 says its enemy will come from the far North. Some believe Gog is Turkey, Turkey is north of Israel but Russia is far north of Israel, in fact Moscow is directly north of Jerusalem. The point I want to make here is, Russia has recently taken possession of the North Pole region, So just like Israel will be attacked by Russia from the far north, America could also be invaded by Russia from the north.
More Laughs coming out of August of 2015
Well its been a year lol.
Don Preston weighed on John Shorey back in Jan of this year
I got this from Daniel Colon.
This picture shows HORRIBLE hermeneutics!! Yet, almost everyone agrees that every OTHER use of “this generation” is speaking of the generation being addressed! His contemporaries! Check it out:
Matthew 24 also gives us the clearest of timelines for the same events as Revelation. It states, “Verily I say unto you (You, meaning first century disciples, vs 3), THIS GENERATION shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.” Here are two words used together, “THIS GENERATION”, about a dozen and a half times in the New Testament. Each and every time they’re used together, futurist teachers admit that they are communicating a first century generation of people. Every time, except for the time they’re used in the Olivet Discourse (Matthew 24:34, Mark 13:30, Luke 21:32). There, they claim that, it means something entirely different. Some futurist teachers actually change the words, in order to change the meaning. They will say, “The (changed word from this) generation that sees (that sees are added words) these things (changed sentence structure), shall not pass away till all these things be
fulfilled.” Other futurist teachers claim that the Greek word for generation, Genea, can actually mean race, as in, “This Race shall
not pass away, till all these things be fulfilled.” This doesn’t make any logical since, so this race will pass away once these things are fulfilled? Once more, they have yet to come up with a single verse (there are none) where Genea is communicating race in the N.T.! The only N.T. Greek word that could communicate race is Genos. This Watch Tower like denial will even go so far as to say that Genea, used nearly 40 times in the New Testament, is always referring to those living in that first century generation, that it’s not a race or distant generation, except for the one time it’s used in the Olivet Discourse! Consider the following verses using “THIS
GENERATION.” Matthew 11:16, “But whereunto shall I liken THIS GENERATION”, 12:41, Nineveh shall rise in judgment with THIS GENERATION”, 12:42, “The queen of the south shall rise in judgment with THIS GENERATION”, 12:45, “THIS wicked GENERATION”, 23:36, “All these things shall come upon THIS GENERATION”, 24:34,“THIS GENERATION shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled”, Mark 8:12,“..no sign be given to THIS GENERATION”, 8:38, “THIS adulterous, and sinful GENERATION”, Luke 11:50, “blood of all the prophets, which was shed from the foundation of the world, may be required of THIS GENERATION.”, 11:51, “blood of Abel unto Zacharias …shall be required of THIS GENERATION.” 17:25, “be rejected of THIS GENERATION, Acts 2:40, “THIS perverse GENERATION.” See also, Matthew 3:7, 16:4, 23:33, Mark 9:19, Luke 7:31, 9:41, 11:30,31,32. “THIS
GENERATION” lines up perfectly with John’s “AT HAND” (Eggus), “SHORTLY”, “QUICKLY” (Tachos), and “SEAL NOT”, all time indicators. It lines up perfectly with, “You shall not have gone over the cities of Israel, till the Son of man be come (Matthew 10:23).” And with, “There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death till they see the Son of man coming in His kingdom (Matthew 16:28).” By the way, this is not referring to The Transfiguration in the next chapter, because that took place only six days later, and NONE of the disciples had died, but most had died by A.D. 66-70. Also, rewards weren’t handed out at The Transfiguration (16:27). These time indicators are consistent with nothing but a first century
fulfillment! – Commentary on Revelation, Fulfilled Covenant Bible.
John Shorey will have you to believe Matthew 24, Luke 21, Mark 13, along with Revelation is about to occur this year or next. Funny thing, it is already past!
A great post by Ken Dahl
“End Times Experts” not so “expert” afterall…
Jesus didn’t return before 1970 like so many preachers and traveling evangelists believed He would. Jesus didn’t return in 1975 as Jack Van Impe had projected.
Jesus didn’t return before 1982 as Hal Lindsey told us he would. The book entitled 88 Reasons The Rapture Will be in 1988 by Edgar C. Wisenant also slipped conveniently into the sea of Christian forgetfulness. Since Hal’s 1982 prediction failed, he publicly signed onto Whisenant’s new date, based upon Israel becoming a State in 1948, which was interpreted as the blossoming of the fig tree; therefore the generation that sees that 1948 event would be the generation that would not pass away until Jesus returns. Hence, a generation, being 40 years, places the rapture somewhere around 1988. After the passing of the deadline in 88 Reason’s, Mr. Whisenant came out with a new book called 89 Reasons why the Rapture is in 1989. This book sold only a fraction of his prior release. This was followed by a book called When Your Money Fails by Colin Deal, which promised to “prove beyond a shadow of a doubt” that we were indeed living in the last moments of time on earth in 1988.
It doesn’t end there. Now, here in the year 2013 we have people revising that date by figuring a generation NOT to be 40 years but 70 to 80 years (based on life expectancy) which would place “the rapture” sometime between 2018 and 2028. I honestly WISH I was making this up.
Jesus didn’t return before 1990 like so many of us were told He would. And He didn’t return in 1992 as Jack Van Impe’s latest prediction had reported.
Jesus didn’t return before 2000 (Y2K) like so many were making sure they were “ready” for, which included stocking dry goods in the basement as a sort of, you know, extra “oil for our lamps”. Nor did Y2K trigger a “financial meltdown” (or computer crash) that led to (retail) bar codes being tattooed to our hands and foreheads. Jesus did not return in 2007 as Hal Lindsey’s newest calculation suggested, but Hal has “contingency dates” going all the way up to 2048.
How convenient for future book sales.
A year ago, while flipping through TV channels, I landed on the 71-year-old TV preacher John Hagee boldly shouting how he has “no doubt” that within HIS lifetime the sky will open up and Jesus will come down to earth, and “Oh what a glorious day that will be!” He also added, “And I’m no spring chicken!” The faithful stood to their feet in rapturous applauding agreement. But what will that congregation believe when Mr Hagee dies of old age? They will continue believing exactly what they were told to believe (minus the part of John still being alive at Christ’s return, that is). That part they will… um… forget he ever said it…
His latest, as you all know, is the whole “blood moons” tirade…
The man in the above photo recently passed away and is now with God, but here is a quote from his book…
“After thirty years of careful Bible study, I am convinced that the overwhelming evidence concerning the fulfillment of these predictions in our generation points to the return of Jesus Christ in our lifetime.”
Adding his and Reverend Hagee’s bold declaration to the long list of others who preached the same thing…
The number of preachers who set dates over the last fifty years is too numerous to list, but here are just a few of the more popular ones:
Jack Van Impe – 1975, 1988, 1992, 2001, 2008, “soon”…
Hal Lindsey – 1982, 1988, 2007, 2048
Pat Robertson – 1982
Lester Sumrall – 1985, 1986, 2000
Benny Hinn – 1993
Kenneth Hagin – 1997 to 2000
Jerry Falwell – 2010
John Hinkle – 1994
Louis Farrakhan – 1991
Harold Camping – 1994, 2011
Shelby Corbett – 2007
Marilyn J. Agee – 2007
Michael Drosnin (author of The Bible Code) – 2012
The Jehovah’s Witnesses (too many dates to list)
Ellen G. White, founder of the Seventh Day Adventist church (too many to list)
And who holds all these people accountable?
You guessed it… NO ONE.
IT IS NOT A COINCIDENCE that over the last 40 years they have ALL been wrong. Yes, ALL OF THEM. They didn’t just have the date or season wrong; they’ve got the entire STORY wrong. And yet, somehow, we just keep listening to them? Really? Forty years from now (2054) when Jesus STILL hasn’t violently broke through the afternoon clouds perhaps that generation will finally surrender to what the Bible actually says on these matters…
Even today, if you go visit any “Jesus-is-Coming-Soon” facebook pages or “Bible Prophecy” or “End Times” websites and blogs you will see exactly what you’ve seen 2 years ago, 4 years ago, 5 years ago, 10 years ago, 15 years ago, and 20 years ago… photos and videos of “alarming” Middle East news…
Article after fearful (conspiracy theorist) article about how it could be “any day now”… you know… “right around the corner”… And their “breaking news” stories of doom and gloom is always “unfolding right before our very eyes”… just as it has been “unfolding right before our very eyes” for the last 50 years.
“Oh but this is different, Ken! Just look what is going on now in the Middle East!”, bla, bla, bla…
It is the same exact conversation from 5, 10, 15, 20 years ago (almost word-for-word)…
By the time TIME ITSELF proves all these people wrong (over three MORE decades) and the Bible’s version of the “Coming of the Son of Man” and the “end of the age” to have been first-century regional events (that were covenental and metaphorical and symbolic and spiritual and even religious in nature) – it will be too late for the church to recover any significant level of credibility at that point… The futurist “Jesus-is-coming-soon” wing of organized Christianity will, in time, prove to be THE most damaging thing that has ever happened to the organized church. Of this, I am absolutely certain.
The months and years are rolling on, and I still don’t recall any preacher stepping up to a podium somewhere and saying, “I’m sorry. I was wrong. We were wrong.” The fact that all the above information didn’t come to us from a pastor’s podium speaks volumes about the lack of social integrity, courage, accountability, and humility in church leadership. There is no polite way to say that.
Want to know what is going to happen in 2018 or 2028 or 2048 or 2098?
Stop what you are doing right now, walk outside and look around your neighborhood, notice the sparrows chirping, the neighbor’s dog barking, walk over and actually smell the lilac bush, hear the sound of cars on the freeway, and an overhead airliner dropping its landing gear, and you’ve seen the future. I’d love to sell you a science-fiction movie with flying horses and descending golden cities from outer space, but the facts are pointing in a completely different (and more natural) direction…
Please move on to the next article below (until you’ve read them all)…
And have your Bible open so you can clearly see whether this is all “someone’s opinions” or if it is actually what your BIBLE says and has always said…
