THE TRUE SITES
When I visited Israel many years ago, I vividly remember how our tour guide, a non-Messianic Jew, went into ALL the places with us, including the many churches along the way, including the so-called Church of the Holy Sepulcher.
There was ONLY ONE PLACE that he REFUSED TO ENTER: The Garden Tomb where the burial and Resurrection of Jesus took place.
He said that he and the bus driver (another non-Messianic Jew) “would wait for us in the bus”.
These guides know the New Testament, sad to say, FAR BETTER than the average Christian. They’re no fools. They live there. They know TINY biblical Jerusalem. And, despite what they may say to tourists OUT LOUD, they KNOW the places where the Crucifixion and Resurrection REALLY happened.
The biblical evidence for the true sites IS OVERWHELMING and DECISIVE, as we proved in the previous messages.
It doesn’t take a genius to figure it out.
Only religiously prejudiced, Bible illiterate Christians would consider ANY OTHER location as “real”.
I may have left Jerusalem physically, but Jerusalem HAS NEVER LEFT ME.
NOT A DAY GOES BY that I don’t think about the Holy City.
I have often marveled at Jews who LIVE THERE and have access to ALL THE HISTORICAL and archaeological EVIDENCE and how little interest they have in them.
They can visit these sites WHENEVER THEY WANT, VERIFY what Scripture says WITH THEIR OWN EYES, and yet they CHOOSE (for the most part) TO BURY THEIR HEADS IN THE SAND and IGNORE IT.
This leads us to Genesis chapter 22:
In verse 2, God asks Abraham to sacrifice Isaac “his only son” on Moriah.
Verse 3, Abraham takes Isaac and two servants and sets off for “THE PLACE God told him”.
Verse 4: “on the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes, and SAW THE PLACE afar off.”
God had told Abraham to offer Isaac at a specific spot on Mount Moriah. The only way Abraham could have identified the spot from “afar off” is it must have had SOME DISTINCT FEATURE that made it easily identifiable.
It did 5,000 years ago, it did 2,000 years ago, and it still has that distinctive feature today: THE UNMISTAKABLE SKULL formation on the hillside. That's why it came to be called Golgotha:
"THE PLACE of the skull":
That’s how Abraham knew (by the skull) that this was THE LOCATION chosen by God to sacrifice (put to death) his son.
Verses 6-7: Abraham lays THE WOOD ON Isaac, takes the fire for the offering, and goes up the hill of Moriah.
If THAT ISNT a picture of Jesus being led to THE SAME LOCATION carrying the wood (the cross) on His shoulders, I don’t know what is!
If the two servants aren’t a picture of Jesus being crucified between two thieves, I don’t know what is!
If the fire doesn’t represent Jesus spending three days and three nights in the FIRES OF HELL for your sins and mine, I don’t know what is !
Then Isaac says “I see the wood and the fire, BUT WHERE’S THE LAMB for the burnt offering?”
Verse 8: Abraham replies (and to this day I CANNOT read this verse without getting all choked up):
“God WILL PROVIDE HIMSELF A LAMB”
Verse 9: Abraham BUILT AN ALTAR THERE (on top of Moriah).
Left: Highest point on Mount Moriah where the remnants of an ancient altar and a thorny thicket are still visible, a short distance from the Crucifixion site.
Right: Precise Crucifixion site, excavated 1978-1982 by amateur archaeologist Ron Wyatt. Now covered with a wooden platform and benches. The top of the cross where Jesus was nailed would have been just below the niche carved on the face of the cliff (behind the round table), as we see in picture below, and about 10 feet in front of the cliff.
Verses 10-12: As Abraham is about to offer Isaac ON THAT ALTAR, the Angel of the Lord stops him.
Verse 13: Abraham sees a ram (male lamb) caught by the horns in a nearby thicket (thorn bush). And Abraham offered the male lamb as a burnt offering IN PLACE OF his son Isaac.
Verse 14: Abraham calls the place “Yahweh Yireh” (meaning “the Lord will provide”) and PROPHESIES: “on the mount of the Lord THIS WILL BE SEEN (or PROVIDED)”.
These were SHADOWS of what God would do THROUGH JESUS.
Shadows are NEVER the REAL thing.
The REAL events DEPICTED by these shadows WOULD BE SEEN at some future point ON MOUNT MORIAH where GOD would PROVIDE HIMSELF (Jesus) as THE LAMB.
Fast forward 2,000 years (to 37 A.D.) and GOD DID INDEED PROVIDE HIMSELF AS THE LAMB to TAKE AWAY THE SIN OF THE WORLD. (John 1:29; Hebrews 9:12, 26)
Jesus was crucified A VERY SHORT DISTANCE from Abraham’s altar, and only a couple yards from the thicket (thorn bush) WHERE THE MALE LAMB was caught by its horns.
Jesus was even CROWNED WITH THORNS to symbolize that He is the Lamb offered IN PLACE OF God’s other sons.
Therefore, in addition to matching all 9 points of the BIBLICAL description TO PERFECTION, the Garden Tomb and the Skull Hill on Mount Moriah, are also very near the ancient altar and the thicket described in Genesis 22.
HOW DARE anyone claim that the Crucifixion and Resurrection took place ANYWHERE ELSE?
It is ASTOUNDING, and nothing short of miraculous, that these places can still be seen 2,000 to 4,000 years after the TWO LAMBS were offered as burnt offerings for sin.
The first lamb covered sin temporarily.
The final Lamb REMOVED ALL sin – FOR ALL THE AGES !
THURSDAY, MARCH 29, 2018
What if we could show not only the general area on Mount Moriah where Jesus was crucified and buried, BUT THE EXACT SPOT where it happened 2000 YEARS AGO?
What if THE ALTAR where Abraham was going to sacrifice Isaac 4,000 years ago were still visible?
HOW IN THE WORLD, in a TINY city of ONLY ONE SQUARE KILOMETER IN SIZE, did the so-called “Church of the Holy Sepulcher” FALSELY become “the place of Jesus’ Crucifixion and burial”?
…And, therefore, the alleged “holiest site in Christendom”?
HOW IS IT THAT, 300 YEARS AFTER Jesus’ death and Resurrection, these places so sacred to Christian believers, had been SO ERASED from view and from memory that Queen Helena (mother of Emperor Constantine) was led to the WRONG location?
I’ll tell you how: satan, and his most useful tool ORGANIZED RELIGION, tried (with limited “success”) to BURY THE EVIDENCE.
The Book of Acts and some of the Epistles tell us that, after Jesus’ Resurrection and Ascension, the Early Church was SEVERELY PERSECUTED, by both Jewish and Roman authorities, often having to go into hiding, and suffering great distress even famine. (Acts 4:14-18;5:28; 8:1; 11:28; 24:17; 1 Corinthians 16:1-3; 2 Corinthians 8:19; 9:1-5, 12).
Romans were pagans who worshiped the deities in their pantheon and did not look kindly on a “new God”.
Roman authorities did NOT WANT any king but Caesar, and really frowned on a Jewish King, let alone One who is IMMORTAL and HAD RISEN FROM THE DEAD.
And Jewish authorities had already determined that Jesus WAS NOT the Messiah, and that those who believed in Him were blaspheming heretics who needed to be executed or, at the very least, thrown in jail. (Matthew 28:10-15; Acts 8:1; 9:2)
Therefore, they threw dirt LITERALLY on both the Crucifixion site, and the Empty Tomb, and BURIED BOTH.
That is why BOTH had to be EXCAVATED.
The Garden Tomb was unearthed in 1867. And although Golgotha (the place of the skull) was proposed as the place of Crucifixion as early as 1842 by German theologian and biblical scholar Otto Thenius, and his theory supported by other scholars, and enthusiastically embraced later by British General Charles Gordon, the actual spot where Jesus’ cross was erected was not found until 1978.
Jewish religious authorities figured that with NO VISIBLE PLACES to associate with Jesus’ death and Resurrection, He’d soon be forgotten and the Christian faith would become extinct in 50 years or less. (Acts 5:38-39)
In their spiritual blindness they forgot that Jesus (praise His Name!) had already preempted them by telling His disciples that His Kingdom “does not come WITH OBSERVATION: nor would they say “here it is” or “there it is” but THAT HIS KINGDOM IS WITHIN THEM. (Luke 17:20-21)
Jewish authorities deprived the Church of ANY TANGIBLE places they might associate with Jesus’ death and Resurrection.
Since one reaps what one sows (Galatians 6:7), God also deprived JEWS of ANY TANGIBLE objects (the Ark, and then the Second Temple) that they might associate with THEIR DEAD religion.
Just like they intentionally misled Christians several centuries later to the WRONG location for the burial and Resurrection, so has THEIR OWN DECEPTION BOOMERANGED on their deceitful derrieres, and misled them to THE WRONG LOCATION for their former temples. (Genesis 27:22-24; 29:22-25)
Yes, the REAL Crucifixion spot, and the REAL tomb were INTENTIONALLY buried in rubble, HOPING that believers in the true Messiah would forget all about them and Him.
In this photograph (circa 1914) the Red Arrow marks spot where Jesus' cross was erected. Notice how the earth is raised way above the rest of the flat land due to the soil and debris that was INTENTIONALLY piled on top to cover up the spot.
The destruction of Jerusalem and the Second Temple in 70 A.D. only added to the devastation and confusion.
By the time Queen Helena reached Jerusalem (according to Eusebius in 326-328 A.D.) the most sacred sites to the Early Church had been TOTALLY HIDDEN FROM VIEW.
This led to the legend that Helena had found fragments of “the true cross” at the Holy Sepulcher site, which is NOT where Jesus died and was buried, but rather the place where John Hyrcanus (a king of the Hasmonean Dynasty) was buried.
Hypothetically speaking, EVEN IF she had really found some wood fragments, and EVEN IF one could prove beyond doubt they had come from some cross, THAT IN NO WAY proves it was Jesus’ cross, since Romans had crucified THOUSANDS of Jews around Jerusalem.
Whether Helena was misled to that site intentionally, or whether it was picked by her arbitrarily to give Christians a focus for their faith while Jews who knew the real location kept silent, remains one of the great mysteries in human history.

IS THE SECOND COMING BIBLICAL ?
A Jew recently wrote me saying that “there’s NOTHING in the Bible about A SECOND COMING of Messiah”.
There are multiple New Testament passages that speak of Jesus’ Second Coming. (Matthew 24:30; 25: 13; Luke 21:28; Acts 1:11; Revelation 19:11-20)
However, traditional Judaism DOES NOT CONSIDER THE NEW TESTAMENT, even though it is written ENTIRELY by Jews, as part of the Bible.
Therefore, when he said that “there’s NOTHING about it in the Bible”, I knew he meant in the Tanach or Old Testament.
I also knew that he was wrong.
The 70 weeks prophecy speaks VERY CLEARLY about the Messiah Prince.
It says that after the “62 weeks” Messiah would DIE, but NOT for Himself. (Daniel (9:26)
It says that Jerusalem and the temple would be destroyed after His death by a “prince” that would come. They were.
And it says that there would be “7 weeks” IN ADDITION TO THE 62 WEEKS that would once again lead to Messiah Prince. (Daniel (9:25)
Since it’s clear in verse 26 that Messiah HAD TO DIE prior to the second temple’s destruction, and since the 70 weeks must end with His COMING, and usher in EVERLASTING RIGHTEOUSNESS (Daniel 9:24) the ONLY WAY this could happen is if He came TWICE:
The first time TO DIE
The second time TO REIGN
But there’s more…
Zechariah has this to say with regards to the Messiah:
“And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Spirit of grace and of supplications: and THEY SHALL LOOK UPON ME WHOM THEY HAVE PIERCED, and THEY SHALL MOURN FOR HIM, as one mourns for his only son, and SHALL BE IN BITTERNESS FOR HIM, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.” (Zechariah 12:10)
Since most Jews have been waiting 6,000 YEARS for the Messiah, WHY would His long-awaited coming CAUSE MOURNING, instead of rejoicing?
Had He NOT COME ALREADY, THEY COULD NOT RECOGNIZE HIM as the one whom THEY “have pierced”.
WHY on earth, then, would they mourn for Him?
NOBODY mourns for someone that THEY’VE NEVER SEEN OR HEARD OF BEFORE.
Zechariah also says that when Messiah comes:
“… They shall say to him, WHAT ARE THESE WOUNDS IN YOUR HANDS?
Then he shall answer, Those WITH WHICH I WAS WOUNDED IN THE HOUSE OF MY FRIENDS.” (Zechariah 13:6)
He COULDN’T HAVE BEEN WOUNDED “in the house of His friends” UNLESS He’d ALREADY BEEN “in the house of his friends”.
The Second Coming of Messiah is TOTALLY BIBLICAL, and is found in both Old and New Testaments.

SYNAGOGUE OF SATAN
“I will make those who are of the synagogue of Satan, WHO CLAIM TO BE Jews though THEY ARE NOT, BUT ARE LIARS—I will make them come and fall down at your feet and acknowledge that I have loved you.
Since you have kept my word to endure patiently, I WILL ALSO KEEP YOU FROM THE HOUR OF TRIAL THAT IS GOING TO COME ON THE WHOLE WORLD to test the inhabitants of the earth.” (Revelation 3:9-10)
As a young Christian I became well acquainted with Messianic Judaism.
Most Messianic Jews teach biblical Truth, especially in connection with the FUNDAMENTALS of the Gospel of Salvation by Grace through faith. (John 3:16-17; 5:24; Mark 16:16; Romans 3:27-28; Ephesians 2:8-9)
Unfortunately, there are also many who CALL THEMSELVES “Messianic Jews”, who GRUDGINGLY ADMIT that Jesus IS the Messiah, yet the rest of their teaching IS PURE, SATANIC HERESY:
1. They DENY the Deity of Jesus, saying that He is the Messiah but that He is NOT God.
They FALSELY claim that the Messiah being God is a false doctrine invented by Christians and that it’s NOT FOUND IN the Tanach.
God begs to differ. (Psalm 45:6-7; Isaiah 9:6)
2. They say that while Jesus is the Messiah, that faith (trust) in Jesus alone, and WHAT HE DID for Salvation, is NOT SUFFICIENT.
That salvation REQUIRES observance of the Torah.
Again, God says OTHERWISE (Genesis 15:6; Jeremiah 31:31-34)
Jesus is the ONE AND ONLY Savior. (Isaiah 45:22; Jeremiah 23:6; 33:16)
The Torah has NEVER SAVED ANYONE, and NEVER WILL. (Psalm 53:1; Isaiah 64:6)
3. They claim that the Godhead (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) is also a Christian INVENTION NOT supported by Tanach.
Yahweh says THEY ARE LIARS.
The Godhead appears IN THE FIRST THREE VERSES of the Bible (Genesis 1:1-3)
(See also Psalm 2:1-12; Proverbs 30:4; Isaiah 61:1; Zechariah 4:6; 14:4-9)
4. They claim, likewise, that the Messiah’s VIRGIN BIRTH is NOT found in the Tanach.
Again, the One who gave the Tanach SAYS THEY’RE LIARS. (Genesis 3:15; Isaiah 7:14)
Besides those four damnable heresies they ADD (depending on which particular member of the synagogue of satan is speaking) a number of OTHER “requirements” such as circumcision, water baptism (mikvah), Old Testament dietary laws, and some even go so far as to claim that we’re not only to live by the Torah, but also by the Mishnah (their ORAL “law”).
Therefore, according to their SATANIC DOCTRINE, Jesus ISN’T the ONE AND ONLY Savior.
If their doctrine were remotely true, the ALL THE AFOREMENTIONED “requirements” would be “JOINT-SAVIORS” ALONG WITH Jesus.
These CHILDREN OF SATAN are the ones THAT JESUS WARNED ABOUT in Matthew 24:4-5 and John 8:44.
They would come supposedly “in Jesus’ Name”, even claiming that He IS the Messiah, and WOULD DECEIVE MANY.
The reason THEY DECEIVE is because they are OF THEIR FATHER THE DEVIL, and are LIARS, just like their father satan. (John 8:44)
They will go through the tribulation, as we read above, UNLESS they REPENT, receive Jesus INTO THEIR HEARTS (not just in their minds) AS ONLY GOD AND SAVIOR, and become born-again.
There already was a synagogue of satan in the first century, when the Book of Revelation was written.
Paul called its members “Judaizers”. (Galatians 2:12-14)
They were AS LOST THEN, as they are TODAY.

WHAT HAPPENED TO JUDAS?
We have two SEEMINGLY conflicting accounts of Judas' demise after he betrayed Jesus.
The first is found in the Gospel of Matthew 27:3-10:
"When Judas, who had betrayed him, saw that Jesus was condemned, he was seized with remorse and returned the thirty silver coins to the chief priests and the elders:
"I HAVE SINNED," HE SAID, "FOR I HAVE BETRAYED INNOCENT BLOOD."
"WHAT IS THAT TO US?" they replied. "That's your responsibility."
So Judas threw the money into the temple and left. Then HE WENT AWAY AND HANGED HIMSELF.
The chief priests picked up the coins and said, "IT IS AGAINST THE LAW to put this into the treasury, since IT IS BLOOD MONEY.
So they decided to use the money to buy the potter's field as a burial place for foreigners. That is why it has been called the Field of Blood to this day.
Then what was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet was fulfilled: "They took the thirty silver coins, the price set on him by the people of Israel, and they used them to buy the potter's field, as the Lord commanded me."
That's religion for you: these hypocrites didn't give a damn about the ABSOLUTE UNLAWFULNESS of spilling innocent Blood (a direct violation of their 5th Commandment, Exodus 20:13), however, they were careful to ABIDE BY the LEGAL requirements of their DEAD RELIGION and not put the money in the temple treasury.
The other account is given in Acts 1:18-20:
“With the reward he got for his wickedness, Judas bought a field; THERE HE FELL HEADLONG, HIS BODY BURST OPEN AND ALL HIS INTESTINES SPILLED OUT. Everyone in Jerusalem heard about this, so they called that field in their language Akeldama, that is, Field of Blood.
For, said Peter, it is written in the book of Psalms, May his place be deserted; let there be no one to dwell in it, and, "May another take his place of leadership”.
The biblical account APPEARS to say in one place that Judas hung himself and, in another, that he fell headlong and his bowels spilled out.
So, what REALLY happened to Judas? Which account is correct?
There's NO DISCREPANCY WHATSOEVER between the two accounts.
After betraying Jesus and returning the money, Judas went to the place in the Valley of Hinnom (pictured below) that became known as Akeldama (meaning “field of blood”).
There he HUNG HIMSELF.
He tied the rope to a tree limb, placed the noose around his evil neck and flung himself down. As he jumped, either the tree branch broke, the rope broke, or broke loose (got untied) and instead of dying by hanging, as he had planned, he fell head-first into the ground.
The impact of the fall caused his bowels to burst and gush out unto the earth.
This had been foretold in verse 18 of Psalm 109, the very Psalm Peter quoted in Acts 1 when seeking a replacement for Judas:
"As he clothed himself WITH CURSING like as with his garment, so LET IT COME INTO HIS BOWELS like water, and like oil into his bones".
That's why Revelation 13:11 tells us that when Judas reappears as the false prophet, he will come "out of the earth", since it was there, in the land of Israel where his treacherous bowels were SPILLED LIKE WATER unto the ground, in precise fulfillment of Psalm 109:18.
There's no ambiguity whatsoever as to what happened to this son of perdition, just like there's no ambiguity at all about his final destination. (Revelation 19:20)

TRUTH IS ABSOLUTE
Truth is NOT relative.
Truth is ABSOLUTE.
If it WERE relative, it wouldn’t be Truth.
If it WERE relative, it would not be trustworthy.
And yet SO MANY people, who call themselves Christian, speak, think and act AS THOUGH IT WERE relative.
They live by APPEARANCES, FEELINGS and OPINIONS, which change more often that our underwear.
They trust THEIR FIVE PHYSICAL SENSES, particularly their eyes, MORE THAN THEY TRUST Jesus. (2 Corinthians 5:7)
They care more about WHAT THEIR PEERS THINK than about WHAT GOD SAYS.
They roam cyberspace in search of Truth FROM MORTALS.
Ever “learning” and NEVER coming to THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE Truth. (2 Timothy 3:7)
You’ll NEVER get Truth from mortals.
There is ONE SOURCE for Truth and that ONE source is the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. (John 14:6)
Truth is UNBENDING and UNYIELDING.
Truth is INFLEXIBLE and ADAMANTINE.
Truth has a way of SUPERIMPOSING ITSELF, DESPITE WHAT all human logic, the physical senses, human feelings and opinions may say.
Despite what “they” may say or think!
Truth doesn’t care about anyone’s opinion.
Truth doesn’t ask anyone’s permission.
Truth will OVERCOME everything and EVERYONE.
Truth NEVER CHANGES.
He is THE SAME: yesterday, today and forever (Hebrews 13:8)
That is WHY TRUTH CAN BE TRUSTED.
That is why Jesus (THE Truth) could confidently say (Matthew 24:35):
“Heaven and earth will pass away, BUT MY WORDS WILL NEVER pass away”.

BEINGS UNDER THE EARTH
“Therefore God exalted Him to the highest place, and gave Him the Name above all names, that at the Name of Jesus EVERY KNEE SHOULD BOW, in heaven and on earth AND UNDER THE EARTH” (Philippians 2:9-10)
“And EVERY CREATURE which is in heaven, and on the earth, AND UNDER THE EARTH, and such as are IN THE SEA, and ALL THAT ARE IN THEM, heard I saying, Blessing, and honor, and glory, and power, be to Him that sits on the throne and to the Lamb forever and ever.” (Revelation 5:13)
“Therefore rejoice you heavens, and you that dwell in them. WOE TO THE INHABITANTS of the earth AND OF THE SEA! For the devil has come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has but a short time.” (Revelation 12:12)
Who are these beings “under the earth” and inhabitants “of the sea” that Scripture mentions again and again?
They are demons.
Demons are humanoid beings that inhabited the earth prior to Adam.
They rebelled and were sent to the abyss, deep in the sea.
They are also PEOPLE who have gone to hell.
Hell, as I have shared often, is located under the earth. (Numbers 16:33; Deuteronomy 32:22; Isaiah 14:9)
The way in and out of hell is through the sea. (Ezekiel 28:8)
These beings are aware of Jesus and who He is. (Mark 1:24)
They have to acknowledge His Deity and bow their knees before Him.
THAT IS WHY is makes NO SENSE WHATSOEVER for any human NOT TO RECEIVE JESUS, and end up in hell.
Even in hell, THEY’LL STILL HAVE TO WORSHIP HIM AND ACKNOWLEDGE HIM AS GOD.
EVERYONE will have to worship Jesus and acknowledge Him as God:
We can do it FROM A PLACE OF TORMENT.
Or we can do it in UNENDING JOY.
After all is said and done, THAT is really THE ONLY choice.
FRIDAY, MARCH 23, 2018
There are several instances in the Gospels when Jesus suddenly interrupted people’s plans:
A Samaritan woman went to a well to draw water, and she ran into Jesus, who told her that He could give her LIVING WATER so that she’d NEVER THIRST again.
She planned to go home to her sixth “husband”: instead she became a preacher of Jesus to all Samaritans in that village. (John 4:4-42)
The teachers of the Law fully intended to stone to death this other woman for adultery (of course, they HYPOCRITICALLY let THE MAN who had committed adultery with her GET OFF SCOT-FREE) and Jesus interrupted their plans by FORGIVING HER, and CHALLENGING THOSE “WITHOUT SIN” to cast the first stone at her. (John 8:3-9)
Since they were ALL SINFUL, their religious plans were rather abruptly interrupted.
(Religion ALWAYS produces DEATH).
Jesus, on the other hand, is THE Life. (John 14:6)
Jesus RUDELY INTERRUPTED the sellers and money changers in the temple by letting the animals loose, OVERTURNING THEIR TABLES, calling them THIEVES, and driving them out with a whip! (John 2:14-15)
And, of course, Jesus INTERRUPTED the teachers of the Law and Pharisees by showing up, preaching the Good News of free salvation, forgiveness and GRACE.
They expected SOME GREAT MILITARY CONQUEROR that would liberate them from Rome and restore Israel to its Kingdom heyday.
Instead, they got a PEACEFUL CARPENTER, who never wielded a weapon, who taught TO LOVE, even one’s enemies, and to turn the other cheek. (Matthew 5:44; John 8:42-47)
Never mind that He could heal, rule Nature, defy the laws of physics, feed multitudes, and raise the dead.
Or that He could wipe Rome off the map with a breath from His nostrils, had that been His mission in the first century…
Instead, He came TO DIE…
Imagine what a DISAPPOINTMENT Jesus was to them.
Jesus is about to interrupt A LOT OF PEOPLE’S plans once again:
For starters, world leaders, politicians, international bankers, and the world at large, are making all kinds of plans without factoring in His impending Appearing and subsequent Return.
There are “Christians” who DO NOT WANT HIM TO APPEAR and interrupt their worldly pursuits.
They LOVE THE WORLD, and the things of this world, FAR MORE than they “love” Jesus.
They try to find some “obstacle”, some biblical “loophole”, to PREVENT Jesus from appearing.
As if He needed THEIR CONSENT in order to carry out His plans.
Dream on, fools…
Sadly, when He appears, all religious people and MOST OF THE CHURCH are going to be caught totally OFF-GUARD.
His Church ought not to be in darkness that that day should overtake it as a thief. (1 Thessalonians 5:4)
BUT TRAGICALLY, most of it wallows in nebulous haze.
Their fickle hearts go a-whoring after every NOVEL teaching on YouTube, or the latest piece of religious fantasy to come out of the printing press, without THE SLIGHTEST CONCERN about what GOD ACTUALLY SAYS.
They fatuously expect God to accommodate His schedule TO THEIR WISHES, instead of accommodating their wishes TO HIS WORD.
Theirs will be A PARTICULARLY SHOCKING “INTERRUPTION”.

WHOSE CHILDREN ?
“And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.” (Galatians 4:6)
“For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
For YOU HAVE NOT RECEIVED THE SPIRIT OF BONDAGE AGAIN TO FEAR; but you have received the Spirit of adoption, by which we cry, Abba, Father.
The Spirit Himself BEARS WITNESS WITH OUR SPIRIT, THAT WE ARE THE CHILDREN OF God:” (Romans 8:14-16)
THE Common Denominator shared by all Children of God, is they have THE HOLY SPIRIT LIVING IN their hearts.
ANYONE who DOES NOT have the Holy Spirit in their hearts, is NOT Christ’s, hence is NOT a child of God (Romans 8:9)
I don’t care how RELIGIOUS they are…
I don’t care what “good Christians” they pretend to be…
I don’t care to what denomination they belong.
I don’t care how many “good deeds” they’ve done.
I don’t care how “obedient” they claim to be.
I don’t care if they’ve “observed” the 10 Commandments until they turned into an ugly, shriveled, old prune.
I don’t care HOW MUCH they may call God “their Father”.
NO HOLY SPIRIT = NOT BORN AGAIN
NOT BORN AGAIN = BEING A CHILD OF SATAN, and NOT a child of God. (John 8:44; Colossians 1:13)
The very religious and self-righteous Pharisees claimed to be children of God, and had the arrogance to say it to Jesus. (John 8:13, 41)
But our Lord KNEW BETTER:
They REJECTED Jesus, and kept trying to either catch Him in an error, so they could discredit Him, or they flat-out wanted to kill Him. (John 11:48-50)
Jesus replied: “If God were your Father, YOU WOULD LOVE ME, for I have come here from God. I have not come on my own; God sent me… YOU BELONG TO YOUR FATHER, THE DEVIL, and you WANT TO CARRY OUT YOUR FATHER’S DESIRES. HE WAS A MURDERER FROM THE BEGINNING, NOT HOLDING TO THE TRUTH, FOR THERE IS NO TRUTH IN HIM. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for HE IS A LIAR AND THE FATHER OF LIES.” (John 8:42-44)
All those who make JESUS ALONE INSUFFICIENT TO SAVE, are LIARS, and are PROVING they’re not children of God, but of the Devil. (John 14:6; Acts 4:12)
THEY DON’T KNOW Jesus, hence God is NOT their Father.
They’re the very ones who will say to Jesus: “Lord, Lord… DIDN’T WE DO all sorts of wonderful things, in your Name?”
DIDN’T we observe the 10 Commandments “in your Name”?
DIDN’T we observe a 24 hour shadow named Saturday “in your Name”?
DIDN’T we live “obedient lives” in order to HELP YOU SAVE US?
DIDN’T we observe Old Testament dietary laws “in your Name”?
And Jesus will reply: “I NEVER KNEW YOU: DEPART from me, WORKERS of evil”.
THE ONLY WAY to become a child of the Most High God is to receive His Son, Jesus THE MESSIAH, into our hearts, and TRUSTING JESUS ONLY -- TO COMPLETELY SAVE US FOR ALL ETERNITY. (John 1:12; Romans 3:27-28; 6:23; 8:1, 33 Ephesians 2:8-9)
Only those WHO TRUST JESUS TO BE THE ONE AND ONLY, ETERNALLY SUFFICIENT God and Savior, may call God “Father”.
Those who DENY His Deity, or DENY Christ’s ABSOLUTE SUFFICIENCY to eternally save, BELONG TO SATAN – I don’t care how much they CALL THEMSELVES “Christian”.
There’s NO SALVATION in ANYTHING or ANYONE, BUT JESUS. (Acts 4:11-12)

TREASURE IN OUR HEART
“For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, HAS SHINED IN OUR HEARTS, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God IN THE FACE OF Jesus Christ.
But WE HAVE THIS TREASURE IN EARTHEN VESSELS, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.” (2 Corinthians 4:6-7)
Our treasure, according to these verses, is found INSIDE, NOT OUTSIDE.
That is exactly what Jesus taught in Matthew 6:21:
“For WHERE YOUR TREASURE IS, there WILL YOUR HEART BE ALSO”
In both instances we are told that our treasure is IN OUR HEARTS.
OUR HEART is INSIDE, NOT outside.
And what, exactly, IS our Treasure?
“That THEIR HEARTS might be comforted, being KNIT TOGETHER IN LOVE, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgment of the mystery of God, and of the Father, AND OF CHRIST: IN WHOM ARE HID ALL THE TREASURES of wisdom and knowledge.” (Colossians 2:2-3)
Our Treasure is Jesus Christ Himself, hidden in our hearts, in Whom are ALL THE (other) TREASURES.
Jesus won’t stay hidden forever.
At some point, He will REVEAL (unveil) Himself and MANIFEST His untold riches in glory, as well as His boundless Wisdom.
Jesus is worth EVERYTHING:
"The Kingdom of Heaven is LIKE TREASURE HIDDEN in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went AND SOLD ALL HE HAD AND BOUGHT THAT FIELD.” (Matthew 13:44)
What silly Christians and clueless jars of clay we are!
We are totally focused ON THE VESSELS, instead of SEEKING THE TREASURE.

LOVING THE WORLD
“LOVE NOT THE WORLD, NEITHER THE THINGS THAT ARE IN THE WORLD. If any man loves the world, the love of the Father IS NOT IN HIM.
For ALL THAT IS IN THE WORLD, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
And THE WORLD PASSES AWAY, AND THE LUST THEREOF: but he that does the will of God ABIDES FOREVER.” (1 John 2:15-17)
There are Christians who DO NOT want the Rapture or the Second Coming of Jesus.
If they had their way BOTH of these events would be POSTPONED INDEFINITELY into the DISTANT “future”.
Since the whole idea of a “future” is A LIE (when the “future” arrives, IT’S PRESENT!) that means, if it were up to them, JESUS WOULD NEVER COME!!!
WHY would any believer be opposed to SEEING JESUS, having Him as King, to the restoration of the earth, peace, justice, health, longevity, and setting things in their proper order?
They’re IN LOVE WITH THE WORLD.
They frenetically cling to the things of the world: that new home they bought, that new car, the business they just opened which is taking off, the exciting relationship they just started, or the kids or grandkids they just had.
They PREFER “enjoying” these things OVER and ABOVE Jesus.
When NONE OF THEM can REMOTELY compare to Him!
Let’s begin with children and grandchildren: they can be enjoyed MUCH MORE in a non-corrupt environment ruled by the King of RIGHTEOUSNESS.
They won’t stay little forever. And, before you know it, they’ll be attending middle school or high school and face the ASTOUNDING CORRUPTION and challenges modern society offers. (Matthew 10:37)
As far as other material things are concerned, it’s only a question of “time” before the thrill wears off.
NONE OF THEM can fill THE VOID in our hearts, as Jesus can.
NONE OF THEM SATISFIES -- PERMANENTLY.
If you doubt it, look at all the “celebrities” that, despite their fame, fortune, looks, mansions, limos, drugs, booze, and having every material thing their heart desires, end up dead, commit suicide, having endless plastic surgeries to bolster their self-esteem, going from one “relationship” to the next, or jumping in and out of rehab.
NONE of those things satisfy!
It’s one thing for an UNBELIEVER to turn such things into IDOLS.
It’s pretty sad when it’s done by supposed “Christians”.
I’m not here to pass judgment on other’s people’s hearts with regards to salvation.
Only Jesus can make that call.
But I would suggest to any believer who has more love for this world, or the things of this world than for Jesus, WHO WANTS TO PUSH JESUS OFF INTO THE NEVER HERE: that they examine their own hearts and SEE IF THEY ARE IN THE FAITH. (2 Corinthians 13:5)
I’m not saying they’re lost.
But GOD, as we read above, SAYS His Love is NOT in them.

SAY THIS TO JESUS WITH ALL YOUR HEART
"Lord Jesus, please save me. Come into my heart, LIVE IN me. I receive you as my one and only God and Savior. Because you died for my sins ALL my sins are forgiven. I give you my whole heart and my whole life. Thank you for THE GIFT OF ETERNAL SALVATION."
SUNDAY, MARCH 18, 2018
As we get closer to the Rapture and tribulation, it's time to re-examine the role of the 144,000 Jews mentioned in Revelation 7:1-8, and again, in Revelation 14:1-5.
First let me tell you who THEY AREN'T:
1. They are NOT Seventh Day Adventists.
I don't care how many INVENTED "visions" Ellen White claimed to have had.
When visions CONTRADICT SCRIPTURE, they’re NOT of God.
2. They are NOT so-called Jehovah's Witnesses.
God won’t seal their foreheads UNLESS they have His Seal IN THEIR HEARTS.
3. They are NOT any New Age sect.
The Bible makes it crystal clear that they are NATURAL ISRAELITES who receive Jesus as Savior and God.
They are from THE TRIBES OF Israel:
"From the tribe of Judah 12,000 were sealed,
from the tribe of Reuben 12,000,
from the tribe of Gad 12,000,
from the tribe of Asher 12,000,
from the tribe of Naphtali 12,000,
from the tribe of Manasseh 12,000,
from the tribe of Simeon 12,000,
from the tribe of Levi 12,000,
from the tribe of Issachar 12,000,
from the tribe of Zebulon 12,000,
from the tribe of Joseph 12,000,
from the tribe of Benjamin 12,000" (Revelation 7:1-8).
You can't possibly say it ANY CLEARER.
UNLESS one of the three LYING SECTS mentioned above can PROVE they are NATURAL descendants from one of these Israelite tribes, THEY DON'T QUALIFY.
They can say that “THEY are the 144,000” UNTIL THEIR RELIGIOUS FACES TURN PURPLE, GREEN AND RED, THEY ARE NOT THE 144,000 AND, furthermore, NEVER HAVE BEEN, NEVER WILL BE.
They're CONTRADICTING GOD.
That means that THEY are LYING.
In addition to being from the 12 tribes, the 144,000 are:
1. ALL MALE VIRGINS (Revelation 14:4)
2. NO LIE was found in the mouths (Revelation 14:5).
Which mean they speak THE TRUTH (the TRUE Gospel of Jesus), which AUTOMATICALLY DISQUALIFIES those three lying sects who preach a FALSE "gospel" and, thus, ARE ACCURSED (Galatians 1:8; 3:10).
3. They are WITHOUT FAULT before the Throne of God (Revelation 14:5).
Since THE ONLY WAY to be "WITHOUT FAULT" before the Throne of God is to KNOW JESUS and be credited His Righteousness (Romans 3:10; 2 Corinthians 5:21) THROUGH FAITH ONLY, this automatically DISQUALIFIES ALL THREE OF THE LYING SECTS MENTIONED ABOVE WHO TRUST THEIR OWN "righteousness" (Isaiah 64:6).
4. They "follow the Lamb WHEREVER He goes" (Revelation 14:4).
5. They are "first fruits unto God and to the Lamb" (Revelation 14:4).
6. They are sealed unto the Lord during the first 10 days of the tribulation, just before the Church is raptured (Revelation 7:1-8).
How, exactly, are THEY SEALED on their foreheads?
With the Spirit of God and the MIND OF CHRIST! (1 Corinthians 2:15-16; 2 Corinthians 1:22; Ephesians 1:13; 4:30)
Additionally, they MAY be the fulfillment of Ezekiel 9:4 where Jews in Jerusalem are sealed on their foreheads with the Hebrew letter tav which looks LIKE A CROSS.
They remain AT THE VERY least during the first 5-6 months of tribulation while the fifth trumpet judgment and first "woe" is going on (Revelation 9:4-5).
Although the Bible does not say in so many words what their purpose is, it's reasonable to infer from the biblical text that at least PART of their purpose is to share the Gospel with fellow Israelites and encourage them to stand firm in the midst of coming trials.
ONLY AFTER they are raptured into the heavenly realm, does God send AN ANGEL for the FIRST TIME EVER to preach the Gospel, which would indicate that, except for the Two Witnesses, there are no humans available to preach it, either because they have been raptured, are hiding, or have been killed (Revelation 14:6).
The 144,000 natural Israelites are SUPERNATURALLY protected and emerge from the tribulation unscathed.
There's a special rapture for them from Mount Zion, Jerusalem, in Revelation 14:1 shortly after the reign of Antichrist begins.
This, if nothing else, PROVES that God hasn't lost track of the so-called "10 lost tribes".
He knows EXACTLY where they are, and where EACH MEMBER OF THOSE TRIBES IS.
They may be "lost" to the world.
NOTHING is lost to God, except those WHO CHOOSE TO BE.

THE PURPOSE OF SIGNS
As a student of the Bible, as someone called by Jesus to minister His Word of Prophecy, it's part of my job to understand the signs that God gave in His Word concerning the Rapture and Second Coming of our Lord.
Signs are useful; signs can fill us with joy and anticipation. Signs can tell us how close we are to our destination.
Signs, however, NEVER POINT TO THEMSELVES.
Signs are ALWAYS given TO POINT US and LEAD US TO something/someone else.
All the eschatological SIGNS that God gave in His Word point to ONE PERSON, and that's Jesus.
All the dreams, visions, revelations, all the stuff that's going on in the world, with "nation against nation", earthquakes, economies faltering, leadership eroding, religious deception, etc. etc. ...the signs given in Joel 2:28-32 and Revelation 6:12, ALL POINT US to Jesus Christ.
It's good to KNOW ABOUT the signs.
It's nice, in a way, to SEE the signs happening, because they let us know He's near.
But we're NOT to FOCUS ON the signs themselves. We're to FOCUS ON Jesus.
And He's NOT "out there somewhere". He's RIGHT INSIDE YOU.
If you've given Jesus your heart, if you KNOW HIM as Savior and God, if you're born-again, you have THAT WONDERFUL, LOVELY JESUS LIVING INSIDE YOU, and He's MORE REAL than any outward sign.
He's MORE REAL THAN all the signs that point to Him.
If you received Him, He's been there INSIDE YOU, ALL THE TIME. He's NEVER LEFT YOU.
He's been there whether you know it or not, whether your realize it or not, whether you feel His Presence or not. (Matthew 28:20)
Signs are not given primarily for believers, but for UNBELIEVERS.
If there was EVER a time to SEEK Jesus, that time is NOW.
It's HIS APPEARING that all the signs point to.
It's HIS APPEARING that'll rapture us.
As we LOOK FOR His Appearing, let's focus on Jesus. Let's seek Him with ALL our hearts.
He's both the Author and the FINISHER OF our faith.
Signs are helpful, signs can be great or ominous, but they can't begin to compare WITH THE ONE THEY POINT TO.
Prophetic signs POINT US TO our FINAL DESTINATION:
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus.

HEAVEN & RAPTURE
Most of us think of “going to heaven”, and that’s quite true from earth’s perspective.
However, we ALREADY ARE in heaven:
“Even when we were dead in sins, has made us alive together with Christ, (by grace you are saved):
And HAS (already) RAISED US UP TOGETHER, AND MADE US SIT TOGETHER IN HEAVENLY PLACES in Christ Jesus:
THAT IN THE AGES TO COME HE MIGHT SHOW THE EXCEEDING RICHES OF HIS GRACE IN HIS KINDNESS TOWARD US through Christ Jesus.” (Ephesians 2:5-7)
What actually happens is our FALSE, temporary, EARTHLY self is consumed and replaced by our TRUE Self, who is Christ Jesus IN us.
We are in both places simultaneously:
We are THERE permanently. We are here temporarily.
Because of sin we LOST AWARENESS of our true, heavenly Self.
Jesus, being SINLESS, was always aware of His heavenly Self, even while He walked this earth as a mortal human. (John 3:13; 5:19)
And, yes, He was IN BOTH PLACES at the same “time”.
Leave it to heretics to try to impose “limits” on the Almighty, omniscient, and OMNIPRESENT God.
We should look forward to His Appearing with a contrite, humble, and VERY GRATEFUL heart – and with JOYOUS ANTICIPATION – we are SEEING, after all, OUR FIRST and GREATEST LOVE:
“And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;
MEN'S HEARTS FAILING THEM FOR FEAR, AND FOR LOOKING TOWARD THOSE THINGS WHICH ARE COMING ON THE EARTH: for THE POWERS OF HEAVEN SHALL BE SHAKEN.
And then SHALL THEY SEE the Son of man COMING IN A CLOUD WITH POWER AND GREAT GLORY:
And WHEN THESE THINGS BEGIN to come to pass, THEN LOOK UP, AND LIFT UP YOUR HEADS; for your redemption draws near.” (Luke 21:25-28
Please note THE SHARP CONTRAST between the UNSAVED whose hearts “FAIL FOR FEAR of the things that are coming on the earth”, and born-again believers who are told to “LOOK, UP AND LIFT UP YOUR HEADS”.
The original Greek says “STAND UP STRAIGHT and LIFT UP YOUR HEADS”.
We DO NOT cower in fear, nor run to hide under some rock, but STAND UP STRAIGHT, AND LIFT UP OUR HEADS in great and exhilarating expectation.
“And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that hears say, Come. And let him that is thirsty come.
And whoever will, let him take the water of life freely.” (Revelation 22:17)
"He who testifies these things says, Surely I come quickly. Amen. EVEN SO, COME, Lord Jesus".

THE “NOW” MOMENT
When satan attacks and tries to mess our lives, he always does it by bringing our minds into the “future”.
That’s what he did to Eve’s mind in Eden:
“THE DAY you eat of the tree (future) you WILL BE AS GODS”. (Genesis 3:5)
One tiny problem: the “future” doesn’t exist.
The “future” is A LIE.
Eternal Present (Jesus, ETERNAL LIFE) is THE ONLY TRUTH.
If we stay in ETERNAL PRESENT (Jesus) satan’s got NOTHING to work with!
He’s DEFEATED from the get-go!
We often fall into his trap, and allow the devil to kill, steal and destroy by FALLING FOR HIS LIE and PROJECTING IN OUR MINDS TO THE FUTURE.
When we do, he has us where he wants us!
Remember that he (THE FATHER OF LIES) invented the FALSE notion of “time” by SUBTRACTING FROM ETERNITY (eternal present) thus creating THE ILLUSION of “a future”.
Every carrot the devil dangles in front of our faces for the “future” is A LIE.
That is why IT NEVER HAPPENS.
Not only did Adam and Eve NOT BECOME “gods” they fell and became lower than the angels. (Hebrews 2:9)
That is why EVERYTHING satan PROMISES ENDS UP IN FAILURE AND DEATH.
Don’t’ FALL for the devil’s LIE.
STAY in THE “NOW” MOMENT.
STAY in ETERNAL PRESENT.
You’ll never find Jesus, or SEE JESUS, in the “future”.
Jesus IS in the “now” moment.
Jesus IS the ETERNAL NOW.
“I AM that I AM” (Exodus 14:3)
And satan is terrified of Jesus!

YOUR FATHER'S PLEASURE
So often we hear from people who are wracked with guilt and / or uncertainty.
They FEAR that something they did in their past (divorce, remarriage, adultery, lying, stealing, immorality, substance abuse, or some other sin) will keep them from the of .
Some FEAR that some sin they're still committing will keep them from the of .
Others FEAR for some loved one who died, and they DON'T KNOW if he/she/they received Jesus into their hearts, or if they "did it right".
To all of the above, I want to quote Jesus' own words in Luke 12:32:
"Don't be afraid, little flock, for IT IS YOUR FATHER'S GOOD PLEASURE to give you the Kingdom".
God WANTS TO save you MORE than you want to be saved.
God's not sitting in heaven with a team of lawyers looking over every statement you made, or the exact form of speech you used when you received Him, TO DISQUALIFY YOU from Salvation ON SOME "TECHNICALITY".
Jesus DID NOT come to condemn, BUT TO SAVE [John 3:17].
God's not sitting in heaven with a giant magnifying glass nit picking everything in your "past" just so He can damn you.
If He wanted to damn you, He wouldn't have come to earth as Jesus, in human form, AND PAID THE PRICE FOR EVERY ONE OF THOSE SINS.
He ALREADY PAID FOR ALL your sins, past, present AND FUTURE. (1 John 3;5)
There's no sin you've ever committed, are committing, or will commit THAT JESUS DIDN'T PAY FOR. (Hebrews 9:12,26)
Therefore, NO SIN you commit, or will commit, can keep you from heaven.
The ONLY SIN that'll keep ANYONE from heaven is FAILING TO RECEIVE Jesus as Lord, Savior and God.
ALL OTHER sins are forgiven and forgotten (Matthew 11:32; Hebrews 8:12)
If you REJECT the ONLY ONE who PAID FOR your sins, then your sins ARE NOT PAID FOR, and you will be held accountable for them.
That's the bottom line.
Jesus THOROUGHLY ENJOYS bringing each of us, who receive Him into our hearts, INTO His Eternal Kingdom.
Receive Him into YOUR HEART, and His entire Kingdom is YOURS.

1 + 10 + 5
The breathtaking symmetry of God’s calendar deserves our notice:
God set up His calendar in such a way that the first and 7th month would sort of mirror each other:
Major events take place on the first, the 10th, the 15th of both months. And the 15th day in each is followed by a 7-day period: 7 days of unleavened bread (after Passover) and 7 days of Sukkot, culminating in Hoshanah Rabba, THE GREAT SALVATION, who is Jesus in His Second Coming.
The Rapture takes place 10 days after the tribulation BEGINS (Revelation 2:10).
And there’s a special Rapture for the Two Witnesses on the 10th day of Tishri, which is Yom Kippur (Revelation 14:15-16; 15:2).
In the 10 days AFTER the Rapture of present believers, the 144,000 Israelites are sealed (Revelation 7:1-8).
Although the Bible does not specifically say so, I suspect those 10 days are also a “last call” to unbelievers to turn to Christ while Jesus “OPENS and NO ONE SHUTS” and before Jesus “SHUTS and NO ONE OPENS” (Revelation 3:7).
Then present, born-again believers appear in heaven SUDDENLY and COLLECTIVELY, in glorified bodies (Revelation 7:9).
Similarly, just prior to the END of the tribulation – after tribulation believers are raptured – there’s a final 10-day period that allows people to repent and choose Jesus over Antichrist.
Those who do and have been kind to Israel during that troublesome period, get to repopulate the earth during the Millennium.
Those who don’t get tossed into the lake of fire.
In each case, the 10 day grace period is followed by a 5-day period of intense judgment: the trumpets, right after the general Rapture, and the horrific bowl judgments after the rapture of the Two Witnesses on Yom Teruah.
Aviv 1 Tribulation begins, 10 days later the Church is raptured, 5 days later Antichrist reappears.
Tishri 1, Tribulation’s about to end: 10 days later Two Witnesses are raptured, 5 days later THE CHRIST returns.
1 + 10 days + 5, Christ reigns: Forever.
It’s a 1 + 10 + 5 & 1 + 10 + 5 proposition.

TRUMPETS FOR AMERICA
Shortly after the 6th seal is opened, the Church ascends into the heavenly realm (Revelation 7:9).
Then the 7th seal is opened.
When the 7th seal is opened a series of trumpet judgments take place in rapid succession.
ALL of them are ominous, but I want to focus primarily on trumpet #1:
In addition to one-third of trees, grass, and plant life, ONE THIRD OF THE EARTH ITSELF is burnt up. (Revelation 8:7)
This prophecy is NEVER TALKED ABOUT.
Self-professed prophecy pundits won't touch it with a 10-foot pole. They won't even MENTION it.
Why? Neither John Nelson Darby, nor C.I. Scofield, ever majored in chapters 7-10 of the Book of Revelation.
Since they are the primary sources for most prophecy guru doctrine, there's very little they can say or teach about them.
I'm NOT putting down either of those two brothers who, in their day, made significant contributions to both eschatology and the Gospel of grace.
All I'm saying is that there's FAR MORE to Bible prophecy than what they taught one or two centuries ago, as God Himself said there would be (Daniel 12:4,9).
Most backward thinking, stuck in the 19th century prophecy teachers, are therefore happy to jump from chapter 6 to chapter 11 and skip those pesky "in between chapters".
Besides, they have only read this passage in the King James Version of the Bible, which inexplicably OMITS what the original Greek clearly says.
Do you realize the implications of this judgment?
ONE THIRD OF THE EARTH'S LAND MASS IS INSTANTLY BURNT.
If the THIRD PART of the land itself is burned, obviously EVERYONE AND EVERYTHING ON IT is consumed, as well.
The earth's land mass is approximately 510,000 MILLION square kilometers.
ONE-THIRD of that would be 170,000 MILLION SQUARE KILOMETERS.
To put that into some sort of understandable context, it's the equivalent of THE ENTIRE ASIAN CONTINENT (which is the largest) being incinerated ALL AT ONCE.
Of course, the judgment won't be as selective as that.
It won't affect ONE geographical area, but MANY. We are not told SPECIFICALLY which nations will be affected by it.
However, due to their sheer land mass, it's a safe bet that Asia (including parts of Russia, China and India), North America - including parts of the United States and Canada - certain parts of Europe and perhaps parts of South America, Africa and Antarctica will be affected.
The continent of Asia, shown in yellow above, represents approximately ONE THIRD of the earth's land mass. Trumpet #1 will affect parts of Asia and other continents as well.
About the only area of the world that apparently will remain relatively unscathed is the Middle East - Mediterranean basin.
It's PRECISELY from that area of the world that Antichrist will emerge, and where his 10-king coalition will be based (Daniel 7:24; Revelation 13:1).
Many people ask what will happen to the United States during the tribulation, and WONDER WHY America is NOT specifically mentioned in Bible prophecy, although there is an oblique reference to it in Ezekiel 38:13.
Well, here's your answer: It won't be completely destroyed but IT WILL BE SEVERELY CRIPPLED BY the devastating effects of this judgment, compounded by the sudden absence of MILLIONS OF ITS CITIZENS, including many government functionaries, who'll be raptured.
That's NOT EVEN taking into consideration the OTHER 5 trumpet judgments which will doubtlessly take their toll as well.
Another judgment in these chapters seldom mentioned is the DESTRUCTION OF ONE THIRD OF the human population that remains. (Revelation 9:18)
Present world population is 7 billion. Assuming that TWO BILLION people are raptured, that would mean the DEATH OF AROUND TWO BILLION PEOPLE.
The human mind cannot even CONCEIVE or COMPREHEND that number of corpses.
Let alone what CONSEQUENCES their deaths will have in the form of further contamination, disease and epidemics.
We can infer from these known biblical facts, that not only the United States, but Russia and China will be devastated as well.
This will cause a huge power vacuum and quest for world domination that the Antichrist will promptly and eagerly fulfill.
According to Scripture, THAT is HOW Antichrist rises to power and comes to rule what's left of the world, NOT -- through some "secret society" or Machiavellian "conspiracy".

IF YOU’RE HERE DURING THE TRIBULATION
There are three 3’s you must remember:
There are 3 ESSENTIAL THINGS you must know:
1. You can still invite and receive Jesus into your heart and BE SAVED FOREVER. (John 3:16-17; 6:37; Revelation 15:2; 20:4)
2. You MUST NOT take the mark of the Antichrist (Alexander the Great) IN ANY FORM. Receiving the mark GUARANTEES your doom for all eternity (Revelation 14:9-11)
Even if refusing the mark results in PHYSICAL DEATH – REJECT IT!!!
3. The tribulation lasts 3½ years (NOT 7). (Daniel 7:25; 8:13-14; 12:7; Revelation 11:2-3; 12:6, 14; 13:5)
It WILL ALL BE OVER by September 21, 2021. On that date, Jesus will return to earth and MAKE THINGS RIGHT.
Your ETERNAL destiny is at stake –
PLEASE CHOOSE WISELY.
There are THREE POSSIBLE OUTCOMES for those who remain on earth during the tribulation, and DO NOT RECEIVE JESUS:
1. They’ll die and GO TO HELL during the extremely severe judgments (under the 6th trumpet alone ONE THIRD OF MANKIND DIES, Revelation 9:18)
2. They’ll join Antichrist at Armageddon and be annihilated. They’ll be sent to the lake of fire. (Revelation 19:20)
3. If they survive, they’ll be judged by Jesus ON THE BASIS OF HOW THEY TREATED ISRAEL during those 3½ years. (Joel 3:1-3)
Gentiles need to treat Jews and other natural Israelites AS IF THEY WERE JESUS HIMSELF. (Matthew 25:40, 45)
If they ARE NOT KIND TO THEM, if they DO NOT provide food and drink, lodging, clothing, moral support, if they DO NOT HELP THEM in every possible way, they’ll be sent to the lake of fire, which is final and irreversible. (Matthew 25:46)
If they are kind to Jews and other Israelites, they will be welcomed into Jesus’ Millennial Kingdom on earth: they’ll repopulate the restored earth, and enjoy its blessedness. (Matthew 25:34)
And, finally, there are THREE POSSIBLE OUTCOMES for those WHO RECEIVE CHRIST during the tribulation:
1. They may receive Jesus AS GOD AND SAVIOR AS SOON AS THE TRIBULATION BEGINS:
(Everyone will know it’s begun because THERE WILL BE GREAT SIGNS: the sun turns black, the moon red as blood, there’s a huge meteor shower, the sky will SPLIT IN TWO and Jesus will appear IN POWER AND GREAT GLORY, Luke 21:27)
If they receive Jesus INTO THEIR HEARTS, even in the final moments of this Age, they WILL BE SAVED and RAPTURED with the rest of us. (Joel 2:28-32; Matthew 24:30-31; Luke 21:36)
2. They may die in one of the judgments or be killed by the Antichrist and his forces: those who die in the faith WILL BE RESURRECTED right after Jesus’ Second Coming and REIGN WITH JESUS on this earth for 1,000 years.
They’ll spend eternity with Him (Revelation 20:4, 6)
3. Those who receive Jesus and ENDURE (manage to survive) until near the end of the tribulation, will be raptured to heaven JUST PRIOR TO the last 7 and worse judgments and PRIOR TO Armageddon. (Matthew 24:13-14; Revelation 14:15-16; 15:2)
They will be eternally saved and return a couple weeks later to reign with Jesus on the earth.
SATURDAY, MARCH 10, 2018
PANDEMONIUM: WHO’LL GET STUNG
“And in those days SHALL MEN SEEK DEATH, and shall not find it; and SHALL DESIRE TO DIE, and death shall flee from them.” (Revelation 9:6)
This dreadful description of life on earth during the tribulation refers to what takes place under the fifth trumpet and first woe.
satan will be allowed to open the abyss and demons will emerge en masse, and in hideous forms resembling locusts with tails like scorpions, capable of stinging people.
These are probably bodies they've manufactured during the past 7,000 to 10,000 years that they've been in the abyss.
They will sting UNSAVED people FOR 5 MONTHS. (Revelation 9:4-5)
They won’t be able to harm the 144,000 Israelites sealed by God or the Two Witnesses who, obviously, ARE saved but will remain on earth to carry out their respective assignments.
The pain caused by their continuous stinging WILL BE EXCRUCIATING TO THE POINT THAT THOSE STUNG BY THEM WILL WANT TO DIE (will try in vain to commit suicide) BUT, as it literally says in the Greek. "DEATH will FLEE FROM them".
They won't be able to die, even when they SEEK DEATH. They'll have to ENDURE the horrendous torment for 5 months.
Does this mean that no one will die during the first 5 months of the tribulation?
This business of "death fleeing from them" ONLY APPLIES to those stung by demons.
Death will still take place, since shortly after this judgment ONE THIRD of mankind dies. (Revelation 19:18)
We can infer from these passages that the ONE-THIRD OF MANKIND THAT DIES WILL NOT BE STUNG BY THE DEMONS:
THE OTHER TWO THIRDS, WHO REMAIN ALIVE, ARE stung by them.
The first and second woe overlap since both judgments begin within 5 days after the Church is taken up.
The first woe lasts 5 months. (Revelation 9:4-5)
The second woe lasts approximately 1,266 days. (Revelation 11:3, 7, 11-14)
The third woe comprises the unspeakably horrific 7 bowl judgments, the destruction of Mystery Babylon, and Armageddon. (Revelation 9:14-15)
It lasts about 5 days and ENDS with the Second Coming of Jesus.
FRIDAY, MARCH 9, 2018
SAINTS WILL APPEAR
"Jesus said unto her, I AM the resurrection, and the life: he that believes in me, THOUGH HE WERE DEAD, YET SHALL HE LIVE" (John 11:25).t's give it another shot:
According to 1 Corinthians 15:52, AT THE “LAST TRUMP” the dead in Christ are raised INCORRUPTIBLE and (AT THE SAME TIME) WE ARE TRANSFORMED INTO IMMORTAL BEINGS.
According to 1 Thessalonians 4:15-16, THE DEAD IN CHRIST RISE FIRST, BEFORE the Church is raptured:
Then, AFTER they've all risen and we’ve been transformed, WE ARE all CAUGHT UP TOGETHER ALIVE to meet the Lord in the air.
If they RISE FIRST, that means they will be VISIBLE in their risen, immortal form BEFORE TAKE OFF.
Whether we'll see them for seconds, minutes, hours or days is not specified in Scripture.
BUT WE WILL SEE THEM.
Just like many saints appeared to people in Jerusalem in their resurrected form after Jesus' Resurrection and before His Ascension (Matthew 27:51-53).
No wonder Paul tells us to "COMFORT ONE ANOTHER with these words" (1 Corinthians 4:18).
There wouldn't be much comfort IF WE WERE NEVER TO SEE OUR DEPARTED LOVED ONES AGAIN.
Has a loved one recently gone to Jesus?
Or, maybe, many years ago and you STILL miss them and WANT TO SEE THEM?
How wonderful is that?
Please DON'T SAY OR THINK that you've "lost them".
YOU DIDN'T LOSE THEM.
You haven't "lost" anyone and neither has God.
They've simply been TRANSFERRED from THIS (temporal) dimension TO THE ETERNAL ONE.
You WILL see them again.
You will also see your beloved pets again.
Our Jesus is THE Resurrection and THE Life.
THERE'S NO DEATH IN HIM!!!
Want EVEN BETTER NEWS?
You will SEE THE RISEN JESUS BEFORE YOU SEE THEM.
There's NO BETTER NEWS than THAT.
THURSDAY, MARCH 8, 2018
HOW TO PREPARE
How can we prepare for the revelation or unveiling of Christ in us?
When we meet royalty it’s appropriate TO BRING A GIFT.
THE gift that Jesus appreciates the most, after our whole heart, IS SOULS.
We must use the few days we have left to share Jesus, and His FREE OFFER of TOTAL FORGIVENESS AND ETERNAL SALVATION.
DON’T SCARE them by shoving eschatology or Antichrists into their heads, DON’T TELL an unbeliever that the Rapture’s about to happen, or about all the ominous sings, BUT SPEAK SIMPLY AND CLEARLY TO THEIR HEARTS ABOUT JESUS AND HIS LOVE.
This should be a time of joyous expectation for the Church, as well as self-examination, confessing, and purifying.
Yes, He TOOK AWAY the sin of the world – FOR ALL TIME (John 1:29; Hebrews 912, 26; 1 John 3:5)
Yes, our robes are made WHITE by the Blood of the Lamb. (Revelation 7:14)
But we are preparing to see and be caught up into Him who is HOLINESS, PURITY AND PERFECTION Personified.
If you were invited to Buckingham Place to meet Queen Elizabeth II, you’d PREPARE.
You’d be instructed on what to do and not to do, say and not say, wear and not to wear.
We are about to see someone who is INFINITELY GREATER and MORE ROYAL than Queen Elizabeth.
We are about to join the King of kings and Lord of lords!
And He doesn’t care much how you look ON THE OUTSIDE, but He does care about THE CONDITION OF YOUR INSIDE.
IT’S THAT INSIDE on which we must all be focused.
We must genuinely repent, confess and ask the Holy Spirit to remove EVERY TRACE of hatred, resentment, every grudge, every desire to retaliate, every desire to find fault in others, every impure motive, every carnal motive, every desire to “compete” with others, all selfishness, pride, and desire to self-exalt.
We must purify our hearts TO THE POINT THAT NOTHING AND NO ONE is competing with Jesus for even A TINY FRACTION thereof.
TO THE POINT THAT JESUS, and ONLY JESUS, truly has 100% of our hearts.
That doesn’t mean you stop loving everyone else.
On the contrary: we CANNOT truly love our families, friends, or our neighbors, UNTIL we have the RIGHT PRIORITIES, UNTIL LOVE HIMSELF REIGNS SUPREME IN OUR HEARTS – to the exclusion of ALL else.
THEN we can love others as they SHOULD be loved.
It’s the INNER Divine Love, which the Holy Spirit put in our hearts when we were born again that we must stay FOCUSED ON, and INTO which we must be TOTALLY IMMERSED.
THAT is our TRUE and Divine Nature.
THAT is who we REALLY ARE.
THAT is the INNER Christ.

NOTHING TO FEAR
For born-again believers, there’s NOTHING to FEAR. The ONLY ONES who should be afraid of Jesus’ Appearing are the enemies of Christ.
His enemies, as Johnny already pointed out in a recent message, WILL RUN AND HIDE – and understandably so.
If you are a NEW believer, and these things scare you, I want to reassure you: JESUS HAS YOUR BACK: there is NOTHING TO FEAR:
This should be a time of EXCITEMENT and joyous expectation for the Church.
When Jesus appears you will be TRANSFORMED into AN IMMORTAL being. (Matthew 24:29-31; 1 Corinthians 15:52)
You NEED TO TRUST JESUS and His supernatural protection.
His Word clearly shows that NO JUDGMENTS fall on the earth UNTIL the Church is GONE (Revelation 7:9-14; 8:1-4)
If you have been a believer for more than 5 years and YOU’RE SCARED, you need to examine your heart, confess and repent of any sin, and ask Jesus to cleanse you of all sin, receive His cleansing, and ask the Holy Spirit to purify your heart, your mind, and your motives.
YOU NEED TO TRUST JESUS – TO THE VERY END.
Some have voiced concern over loved ones who don’t believe some or any of these things.
Just make sure that they KNOW JESUS (are born-again).
If they ARE born-again, they will be taken up WHETHER they believe the Rapture was yesterday or is a million years away, and REGARDLESS of whom they think the Antichrist is.
DON’T quit your job; DON’T stop making payments on your rent, mortgage, phone, insurance, credit cards, or anything else.
Just go about YOUR NORMAL, daily life.
Jesus said that everything would go on as usual, (Matthew 24:37-39) UNTIL the signs begin.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS ABOUT THE RAPTURE & SECOND COMING
1. COULD THE 70 WEEKS POINT TO THE RAPTURE INSTEAD OF THE SECOND COMING?
NO. NOT A CHANCE.
The Rapture is for the Church. The Second Coming is FOR ISRAEL.
The 70 weeks are determined “upon YOUR PEOPLE (the Jews, since he’s talking to Daniel) and UPON YOUR HOLY CITY (Jerusalem)”. (Daniel 9:24)
The 70 weeks have no DIRECT connection to the Church.
INDIRECTLY, they resulted in the birth of the Church after Messiah’s death, Resurrection and Ascension, (right after His FIRST Coming). (Acts 2:1-4)
INDIRECTLY, by KNOWING THE YEAR of His Second Coming, we can also know the year of the Church’s Rapture, since it HAS TO happen 3½ years PRIOR TO His Second Coming (Daniel 9:27; Revelation 7:9; 13:5)
When the 70 weeks prophecy was given THERE WAS NO CHURCH!!!
2. If the Church is raptured shortly after the tribulation begins, HOW LONG will it stay on earth?
10 days. (Joshua 4:19; Revelation 2:10; 7:14)
Those who have received Jesus into their hearts and are born-again of His Spirit have NOTHING to fear.
We are transformed into immortal beings BEFORE the 10 days, as soon as Jesus appears and the “Trump of God” is blown (Matthew 24:29-31; 1 Corinthians 15:52)
On day 10 we are all “caught up together” (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17).
3. Can the Rapture and Second Coming take place ANY other year, or at ANY other time?
4. What about Jesus’ statement that “NO ONE knows the day and the hour”?
As I have stated COUNTLESS times (it’s also PERMANENTLY POSTED as our prophecy MYTH #39), when the tribulation begins, and the Rapture finally happens, EVERYONE in heaven and earth WILL KNOW THE DAY and THE HOUR for both these events.
Jesus said “no one KNOWS” (PRESENT TENSE). He DID NOT say “and no one WILL EVER know”.
NO ONE knew in the First Century A.D. BECAUSE JESUS HIMSELF HAD SEALED ESCHATOLOGY UNTIL “the time of the end”. (Daniel 9:4, 9)
We ARE in “the time of the end”.
WE ARE SUPPOSED TO KNOW (1 Thessalonians 5:4-11)
5. I still don’t understand what you’re saying about why the Rapture must happen in 2018 and the Second Coming in 2021
Let me give it to you in a nutshell:
The “70 weeks” prophecy indicates that Messiah Prince (Jesus) MUST COME TO EARTH TWICE in “70 SEVENS”.
Jesus came ONCE (2,000 years ago) and He STOPPED the 70 sevens COUNTDOWN WITH HIS DEATH AND RESURRECTION.
The COUNTDOWN STOPPED at 69½ SEVENS.
That ONLY LEAVES HALF A SEVEN (3½ years) of the 70 sevens to be fulfilled.
Those 3½ years are the forthcoming tribulation. (Daniel 7:25; Revelation 13:5)
Daniel 9:25 requires that “from the word to return and build Jerusalem to Messiah prince there shall be 7 SEVENS”.
There was an order to “return and build Jerusalem” in 1969.
The first seven following 1969 was 1972-1973.
Therefore Jesus MUST RETURN 7 SEVENS from 1972, on Sukkot 2021.
If Jesus returns on Sukkot, 2021 – He MUST RAPTURE HIS CHURCH 3½ years EARLIER, before tribulation judgments begin, which is IN SPRING OF THIS YEAR (2018).
6. I thought there would be GREAT APOSTASY BEFORE the Rapture
THERE IS GREAT APOSTASY!
There is MASSIVE “DEPARTURE” (apostasy means “DEPARTURE”) FROM THE FAITH.
This is predicted in 1st Timothy 4:1:
“Now the Spirit speaks expressly, that in the latter times SOME SHALL DEPART from the faith, giving heed to deceitful spirits, and doctrines of demons”.
Jesus Himself predicted this GREAT APOSTASY in Matthew 24:4-8, on which I have taught MANY, MANY TIMES.
All you have to do is listen to most preachers on TV and radio, read some of the heretical and moronic posts on prophecy forums, attend many religious services, or watch THE INCREDIBLE LOONY GARBAGE presented as “Christian” on YouTube.
Apostasy is EVERYWHERE!
My goodness! WHERE have you been?
7. I thought there would be A GREAT HARVEST of souls coming to Christ BEFORE the Rapture
The “great harvest” takes place WHEN THE SIGNS BEGIN (the sun turns black, the moon blood red, the earth and sky quake, there’s a huge meteor shower, the sky splits in two and JESUS APPEARS in power and great glory). (Joel 2:28-32; Revelation 6:12-16; 7:9-14)
If THAT doesn’t bring people to Christ IN DROVES, NOTHING will.
Revelation 7:9 describes the raptured Church as “A GREAT MULTITUDE THAT NO ONE COULD NUMBER of every nation, people, kindred and tongue”.
That is why we stay on earth 10 days after the signs begin, TO ALLOW TIME FOR THAT GREAT HARVEST OF NEW BELIEVERS to be added to the Church, to be gathered from “one end of heaven to the other” and, finally, to be CAUGHT UP TOGETHER WITH the rest of us. (Matthew 24:31; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17)
DON’T WORRY: the harvest IS COMING.
8. What about Isaac Newton?
WHAT about him?
Newton was a student of Bible prophecy.
He also believed that the 70 weeks pointed to Jesus’ First and Second Comings.
And he made certain chronological calculations BASED ON THE UNDERSTANDING HE HAD BACK IN THE EARLY 18TH CENTURY.
We’re in the 21st century.
Jesus POINTEDLY told Daniel that "these things" (pertaining to the tribulation and Second Coming) would REMAIN SEALED UNTIL "the time of the end". (Daniel 12:4, 9)
Newton was a genius. He was ON THE RIGHT TRACK, but he DIDN’T LIVE in “the time of the end”.
Therefore, there’s NO WAY he could have fully known or understood biblical eschatology, or biblical chronology, as we can today.
Jesus Himself, as a human, DIDN’T KNOW “the day or the hour” in the first century – because Jesus Himself HAD SEALED that information!
Unless you want to argue that Newton was GREATER THAN JESUS, or that he was INFALLIBLE, his theories and CALCULATIONS about Bible prophecy were just that: THEORIES.
These revelations that we have shared HAVE LITTLE OR NOTHING TO DO WITH NATURAL HUMAN INTELLIGENCE.
They have EVERYTHING to do with the Sovereign Will of Almighty God.
To Him be ALL THE PRAISE, HONOR and GLORY now and forevermore! Amen.

WHAT HAPPENED TO THEM?
What happened to some of the religious and political characters that played significant roles in Jesus’ last days on earth?
The Gospels tell us that Caiaphas was the High Priest, and that his father-in-law Annas was still very influential.
That Herod Antipas ruled Galilee, and that Pontius Pilate was procurator.
What became of these men?
Annas had been appointed High Priest by the Romans in 6 A.D., and REMOVED from the High Priest position in 15 A.D. by the Roman procurator Valerius Gratus.
The position of High Priest was usually held for life (Numbers 20:28; Deuteronomy 10:6).
For this reason, Annas was still called "high priest" by the Jews even after his dismissal.
It is obvious that, although he no longer officially held the title, he continued to act as high priest through his 5 puppet sons, who succeeded him, and through his son-in-law Caiaphas.
Annas may have also acted, at times, as president of the Sanhedrin, since Luke 3:2 indicates a joint high priesthood "of Annas and Caiaphas".
The last time Annas is mentioned in the Bible is in Acts 4:6-20, after Jesus’ Resurrection, presiding over the Sanhedrin, having arrested Peter and John for performing a miracle in Jesus’ Name, and trying to intimidate them into NOT speaking about Jesus.
There’s no official record of his death, but he’s believed to have lived until around 40 A.D.
Caiaphas was DIRECTLY INVOLVED IN the trial of Jesus, PLOTTED TO KILL Him, and DEMANDED His crucifixion.
(Matthew 26:3-5; 27:20-22; John 19:6-16)
The actual trial took place on Passover Eve, before the twenty-three members of the Sanhedrin over whom Caiaphas presided. (Matthew 26:57)
Caiaphas said that it was expedient “THAT ONE MAN SHOULD DIE FOR THE PEOPLE” (John 18:14)
As High Priest, Caiaphas had prophesied that Jesus would die for the whole nation, even though he HAD NO IDEA what he was REALLY saying. (John 11:50-51)
HE WAS AFRAID that everyone would follow Jesus, declare Him King, and that the Romans would then massacre the people.
Caiaphas died in 37 A.D. shortly after Jesus’ Resurrection and Ascension.
He executed John the Baptist. (Mark 6:25-27)
When he heard of Jesus and His many miracles, he thought Jesus was John the Baptist who had risen from the dead. (Mark 6:14)
He was deposed by Caligula, stripped of his kingdom and exiled to Gaul, where he died in disgrace in 39 A.D.
Pilate was the Roman procurator over the Province of Judea, who gave the order to crucify Jesus. (Matthew 27:26; Mark 15:15; Luke 23:23-24; John 19:16-19)
This he did after WASHING HIS HANDS and claiming NO MORAL RESPONSIBILITY for the Blood of “this innocent man”. (Matthew 27:24)
Based on a complaint to the regional Governor by the Samaritans about savagely suppressing their uprising, Pilate was removed from his post a few days after Jesus’ Crucifixion and perhaps concurrent with His Resurrection, or very shortly after.
He was ordered to report to Caesar in Rome.
He was exiled to Gaul by Caligula.
In Gaul, he committed suicide and died in or about 38 A.D.
All of this FITS PERFECTLY with the Timeline we have provided.
Jesus said: “He THAT IS NOT WITH ME, IS AGAINST ME”: (Luke 11:23)
Those who AREN’T with Jesus are against (ANTI) Jesus and, therefore, antichrists (small “a”).
Please DON’T BE antichrist.
Please be WITH Jesus TODAY, right now.
Receive Him into your heart and BE ON HIS SIDE.
You DON’T want to be His enemy.
JESUS LIVES FOREVER.
All His former enemies are dead, and largely forgotten.
The same fate, or worse, awaits His CURRENT enemies.
All of this brings to mind Jesus’ words in Matthew 21:44:
“WHOEVER falls on this stone WILL BE BROKEN TO PIECES (CRUSHED); but on whomever it falls, IT WILL GRIND HIM TO POWDER!"

3 DAYS OF DARKNESS ?
A special message from our beloved brother Johnny:
Thinking about the universal sign of the sun turning black and the moon blood red, I wondered where the sun and moon will be in the sky of Jerusalem at the start of the Tribulation on March 16th 2018 around 6:30 am - 7:00 am. The picture below shows their respective position from earth’s perspective :
Both the sun and the moon will be visible from Jerusalem at the start of the Tribulation !
Since they will be "together", it's impossible for the darkening of the sun and the moon becoming blood red to be caused by a regular natural eclipse.
Additionally, the earth and atmospheric heaven will shake, a huge meteor shower will occur and so on... This will be a tremendous and fearful sign !
According to Revelation 6:15, this is how the world will react to it:
“And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sits on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?”
When did you see all the people run for shelter during any of the previous natural solar eclipses or so called "blood moons"?
I always asked myself how long the darkness will last (due to the sun turning black as sackcloth) and consequently how long the moon will stay blood red.
Since the book of Revelation does not tell us how long it will last, could the other Books of the Bible give us a hint? I believe so.
According to Exodus 10:21-23, there were 3 days of darkness upon the Land of Egypt:
“The Lord God said to Moses, stretch out thy hand toward the heavens, that there may be darkness in the land of Egypt - so that one may feel darkness. And Moses stretched out his hand toward the heavens; and there was a thick darkness throughout the land of Egypt three days: they saw not one another, neither rose any from his place, for three days. But all the children of Israel had light in their dwellings.”
"Egypt" symbolizes the "world" in which we live. It's the place submitted to the slavery of sin... from which God physically saved the people of Israel during the Exodus and from which we will soon physically flee to meet the Lord in the air (Romans 7:19-24, 1 Corinthians 15:50-53, 1 Thessalonians 4:17).
We are spiritual Israel. (Romans 2:28-29; Ephesians 2:12)
And the Old Testament was a shadow of what would be done by Jesus under the New Testament. (Hebrews 10:1)
According to our "Tribulation timeline", we enter our "Promised Land" on Aviv 10, the same day that natural Israel entered Canaan.
So, it totally makes sense that just like their departure from Egypt was preceded by three days of darkness, the same would happen before ours.
Please note that according to the Exodus:
- There was thick, TANGIBLE darkness only over the land of Egypt (not in the other countries of the world).
- There was light only where the children of Israel had their dwelling (in their homes).
- The darkness lasted 3 days.
According to Mark 15:33, there were 3 hours of darkness upon the world during the Crucifixion:
“And when the sixth hour was come, there came darkness over the whole world until the ninth hour.”
Please note that according to Mark:
- There was darkness over the whole world.
- The darkness lasted 3 hours.
Since it's impossible for a natural eclipse to last 3 days and cover only a single country (not to mention the fact that there was light at the homes of Israel's children in that country); or to last 3 hours (as during the Crucifixion), what happened in both instances is clearly supernatural.
The event that happened during the Old Testament is limited in size (only over the land of Egypt) but greater in length (3 days).
What happened during the Crucifixion (which is the pivotal moment between the Old and the New Testament) is limited in time ("only" 3 hours) but greater in size (over the whole world).
We already know that, since the sun is darkened at the start of the Tribulation, the whole world will experience the darkness like it was during the Crucifixion. So I will not be surprised if the darkness lasts 3 days like it was during the Exodus.
But wait: there is more than meets the eye:
- When there was darkness over the land of Egypt, only the children of Israel had light.
- When there was darkness over the whole world, Jesus, who is the light of the world, was crushed by the darkness to the point where He said: "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me ?" (Mark 15:34)
- When the sun will turn black at the start of the Tribulation, we, the children of light, will be transformed and shine in the darkness. (1 Thessalonians 5:4)
And those who have rejected Jesus’ Sacrifice for their sins on the cross will be crushed by the darkness, as He was 2,000 years ago.
Can you see the pattern?
Matthew 27:50-53 declares that during the Crucifixion:
"Jesus cried again with a loud voice, and yielded up his spirit. Behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from the top to the bottom. The earth quaked and the rocks were split. The tombs were opened, and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised; and coming out of the tombs after his resurrection, they entered into the holy city and appeared to many."
According to Revelation 6:12:
I saw when he opened the sixth seal, and there was a great earthquake. The sun became black as sackcloth made of hair, and the whole moon became as blood.
During the crucifixion, as Jesus gave up his spirit, the earth shook and graves opened from which dead saints of old resurrected.
They even walked in Jerusalem and where seen by many.
I will not be surprised at all if the great earthquake that will occur as the 6th seal opens will "trigger" the resurrection of the dead in Christ. (1 Thessalonians 4:15-17)
All our resurrected brothers and sisters will be visible (in glorified and immortal bodies) as they walk this earth before the rapture.
When they are resurrected, we are transformed as well. (1 Corinthians 15:53)
During the 10 days between the start of the Tribulation and the Rapture, we (both the resurrected believers and the living believers) will shine in the darkness and bring salvation to many (Daniel 12:2-3).
Please consider that according to Matthew 28:2, this is what happened at the Resurrection of Jesus-Christ:
"Behold, there was a great earthquake, for an angel of the Lord descended from the sky, and came and rolled away the stone from the door, and sat on it..."
Do you see the link between the earthquakes and the resurrections?
As I said earlier, I will not be surprised if the darkness lasts 3 days. And since communications and TV will surely be interrupted by the shaking... the signs and THICK, TANGIBLE darkness should "stay" long enough (at least 24h) to be seen, first from Jerusalem, then all around the world, and cause all people to take shelter.
According to their positions on March 16th 2018, the moon and sun will be both visible "together" for at least 3 days, making it possible to be seen and feared worldwide.
It's interesting to note that, from earth’s perspective, the "sun" (which represents the "Son") is at the constellation of "Pisces" (which can represent the "believers from all nations" gathered before the rapture – (Matthew 4:19; Revelation 7:9) while the "moon" (representing "Israel") is at the constellation of Aquarius (in the occult world: Aquarius is considered the sign of the "age of evil").
This will be “the time of Jacob’s (Israel’s) trouble” (Jeremiah 30:7):
The moon is also slightly "to the side" of the water, which represents "God's word". (Ephesians 5:26; 2 Peter 3:5)
Israel received the Scriptures, and yet they missed them and missed the Messiah.
We will have to wait a few days to see exactly how everything unfolds, but one thing is for sure:
The time of the end has arrived!!!
If you read this and you never gave your heart to Jesus, receive Him as your only Lord and Savior now !
SATURDAY, MARCH 3, 2018
While I know of no Scripture that SPECIFICALLY REQUIRES that Jesus’ Second Coming MUST be followed by a Jubilee year, it makes perfect scriptural sense since 7 shemitta periods ARE ALWAYS FOLLOWED BY a Jubilee. (Leviticus 25:8-12)
Jubilee is “the year of the Lord’s favor” (Isaiah 61:2).
It’s ALL ABOUT SETTING CAPTIVES FREE, and returning all property TO ITS ORIGINAL OWNERS:
Israel (the Promised Land) goes back to the 12 tribes. (Ezekiel 48:1-29)
THE WHOLE EARTH is given back TO US. (Genesis 1:27-28; Daniel 7:18; Matthew 5:5)
If the Second Coming takes place on Sukkot 2021, the next Jubilee would be announced 5 days prior on Yom Kippur, 2021.
It would begin on Aviv (Nisan) 1, 2022.
Since it’s Jubilee every 50 years, 2022 minus 2,000 = the Jubilee preceding Jesus’ appearing was 22 A.D. and the first Jubilee after His Resurrection was 72-73 A.D. and would have been announced on Yom Kippur 71 A.D. the year after the Second Temple’s destruction.
In the Talmud the early rabbis declared the year 69-70 A.D. (autumn-to-autumn) a 7th year or shemitta:
"Thus it is found that it (the destruction of the Second Temple) happened during the last part of a septennate (shemitta)".
The Talmud (Mas. Arachin 12b; also Mas. Arachin 11b, paragraph 4)
Jubilees ALWAYS take place RIGHT AFTER a shemitta.
The Talmud is NOT divinely inspired and contains MUCH falsehood, but that doesn’t mean that NONE of its content is true.
EVERYTHING fits PERFECTLY.
It appears, therefore, that while Jews have been LYING to themselves and to us for TWO MILLENNIUMS with regards to the B.C. calendar, they have kept TRACK OF SHEMITTAS CORRECTLY.
The same CANNOT be said about Jubilees.
Although Jubilees, technically, are not observed unless the 12 tribes are in possession of the Holy Land and, therefore, have not been observed for a long time, some Jews proclaimed 2016 a Jubilee year.
God forbid. If it were, Jesus might not return until 2066.
The previous Jubilee was 1972-1973 (which, “coincidentally” was ALSO the first shemitta AFTER the 1969 order to “return and build Jerusalem) and the next Jubilee, by God’s Grace, will be announced in 2021 and will run from 2022-2023.
It will be a SPECIAL JUBILEE with the 12 tribes reunited FOR THE FIRST TIME in Eretz Israel after an almost 3,000-year Diaspora.
FRIDAY, MARCH 2, 2018
I am no expert on the Science of Probability. But the late Peter Stoner, chairman of the mathematics and astronomy departments at Pasadena City College, later chairman of the science division at Westmont College in Santa Barbara, California, and later professor emeritus of science at Westmont, WAS AN EXPERT.
Professor Stoner calculated the probability of one man, the Messiah, “accidentally” fulfilling JUST 8 PROPHECIES from the Old Testament as 1 in 1017
Or one in 100,000,000,000,000,000!
That's one in ONE HUNDRED QUADRILLIONS.
Stoner illustrated the meaning of this number in vivid manner:
Imagine FILLING the State of Texas KNEE DEEP IN SILVER DOLLARS.
Include in this huge number ONE SILVER DOLLAR WITH A BLACK CHECK MARK on it.
Then, TURN A BLINDFOLDED PERSON LOOSE IN THIS IMMENSE SEA OF SILVER DOLLARS.
The odds THAT THE FIRST COIN HE WOULD PICK UP WOULD BE THE ONE WITH THE BLACK CHECK MARK are the same as 8 prophecies being fulfilled accidentally in the life of Jesus.
That indicates it’s BEYOND THE REALM OF POSSIBILITY (it’s IMPOSSIBLE) for Jesus NOT to be the Messiah.
Jesus, of course, fulfilled MORE THAN 8 Old Testament prophecies.
He fulfilled OVER 350!!!
Glory to the one and only God and Savior forevermore!
In similar fashion, we have MORE THAN 8 Old Testament prophecies, and prophecy-related events, about the First and Second Comings of Jesus, whose precise fulfillment “by sheer accident” is BEYOND THE REALM OF POSSIBILITY:
In order for 2018 Rapture and 2021 Second Coming to be incorrect:
1. The TWO portions of the 69 weeks would have to NOT APPLY TO the TWO comings of Messiah. (Daniel 9:25)
If they DON’T, THERE’S NO EXPLANATION FOR the division into 7 weeks AND (IN ADDITION TO) 62 weeks.
Since Messiah PROMISED to return, and since the 70 weeks MUST END with His Second Coming, for THIS to be mere “coincidence” is IMPOSSIBLE. (Luke 21:27; Acts 1:11; Revelation 19:11-20)
2. It would have to be “coincidence” that in the 1948 War of Independence, which Israel won, they LOST ONLY THE JEWISH QUARTER, which is the Jerusalem that existed in Daniel’s time, and to which the 70 weeks prophecy applies.
3. It would have to be “coincidence” that the Jewish Quarter (the VERY Jerusalem that existed in Daniel’s time and to which this prophecy applies) WAS DESTROYED in the aftermath of the 1948 War of Independence, thus MAKING IT NECESSARY to “return and build” it. (Daniel 9:25)
Jordanians COULD HAVE taken the Quarter, EVICTED THE JEWS (which they DID), occupied it, and left it INTACT: They DIDN’T.
4. It would have to be “coincidence” that Jews recovered East Jerusalem, including the Jewish Quarter, on Ascension Day, June 7 (Iyyar 28), 1967 – THE VERY DAY JESUS WENT UP TO HEAVEN, thus INDICATING that the 70 weeks prophecy countdown, INTERRUPTED in 37 A.D., was to begin again thereafter.
5. It would have to be mere “coincidence” that there was A SECOND ORDER, given by the Knesset in spring 1969, to “return and build” BIBLICAL Jerusalem (the Jewish Quarter).
6. It would have to be mere “coincidence” that that SECOND order to “return and build Jerusalem” was given PRECISELY on Passover Eve, THE VERY DAY that Jesus was tried by the Jewish Sanhedrin and later CRUCIFIED * THUS BRINGING THE 70 WEEKS COUNTDOWN TO A HALT at 69½ sevens.
*(The Jewish day begins and ends at SUNDOWN, NOT at midnight)
7. It would have to be “coincidence” that that SECOND order was given EXACTLY AT HALF SHEMITTA: EXACTLY 1,932 “sevens” from Jesus’ Crucifixion.
Thus indicating that THIS DATE, is where Jesus left off the 70 weeks prophecy countdown in His First Coming, and THIS DATE is where it PICKS UP for His Second Coming.
Therefore, the 7-week countdown to Jesus’ Second Coming must begin ON THE FIRST SHEMITTAH FOLLOWING the order to “return and build” Jerusalem given on April 1, 1969. (Daniel 9:25)
8. The INCONTROVERTIBLE Revelation about the Crucifixion year being 37 A.D. based on Tiberius’s death and Pilate’s departure from Judea, both of which occurred in that year, would have to be mere “coincidence”.
9. The fact this allows us NOW to identify shemitta years WITH TOTAL CERTAINTY would have to be mere “coincidence”.
10. God promised Daniel these things would remain “sealed” UNTIL (up to) the “time of the end”. (Daniel 12:4, 9)
It would have to be mere “coincidence” that this revelation DIDN’T COME 10, 5, 3 or even 2 years ago, but RIGHT AT THE “TIME OF THE END” like Jesus told Daniel.
Had this revelation come even two years ago, THERE WOULD STILL BE UNCERTAINTY, since His Crucifixion could have taken place either in 36 or 37 A.D., thus still casting doubt on the correct shemitta years, on the year of His Second Coming, and on the year of the Rapture.
But, by giving it now, IT LEAVES NO WIGGLE ROOM.
11. It would have to be mere “coincidence” that we have THREE ACCREDITED HISTORICAL WITNESSES to vouch for Tiberius’s death and THREE ACCREDITED HISTORICAL WITNESSES to Pilate’s departure from Judea.
By the testimony of two or three witnesses EVERY MATTER IS ESTABLISHED. (Deuteronomy 19:15)
12. It would have to be “coincidence” that we have, FOR THE FIRST TIME in human history, A PERFECT mathematical Timeline that FITS IN EVERY DETAIL, (from the order given by Artaxerxes in 445 B.C., to the birth of Jesus, the death of Herod, to John the Baptist’s ministry, to the beginning of Jesus’ Ministry, to His Crucifixion, to the Rapture, to His Second Coming) that checks out PERFECTLY from AD to BC and from BC to AD.
And that TOTALLY RECONCILES the ALTERED B.C. rabbinic calendar to the flawed A.D. Gregorian calendar.
13. It would have to be mere “coincidence” that FOR THE FIRST TIME in human history the Bible, history and mathematics are all in PERFECT AGREEMENT with regards to the chronology of events in Jesus’ life and with regards to eschatology.
14. It would have to be “coincidence” that we now KNOW EXACTLY on what Feast shemittas begin and end.
THAT was A MAJOR piece of the puzzle. (Deuteronomy 31:10)
This marvelous verse also reveals that Jesus MUST RETURN not just within a shemitta, BUT AT THE END OF A SEVENTH YEAR thus fulfilling the 70 SEVENS.
15. It would have to be coincidence that, against all pundits’ predictions, AND PRECISELY AT THIS TIME, we have a President, who has made headlines around the world, whose last name JUST HAPPENS TO BE “TRUMP”, signaling that God’s “Trump” or “the LAST Trump” is about to sound. (1 Corinthians 15:51-52; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17)

16. It would have to be “coincidence” that FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HISTORY (His story) we know THE DAY (Joshua 4:9; Revelation 2:10), THE HOUR (Isaiah 13:10), and THE YEAR!!!
In addition to these, and keeping in mind that eschatology would remain SEALED UNTIL “the time of the end” (Daniel 12:4,9):
17. It would have to be “coincidence” that for the first time we have a 3½ year Tribulation Timeline of major tribulation events that lines up PERFECTLY with Scripture.
18. It would have to be “coincidence” that we now know the Church stays on earth for the first 10 days of the tribulation (Revelation 2:10:7:14)
19. It would have to be “coincidence” that we know EXACTLY the meaning of the “2,300 evenings – mornings” (Daniel 8:13-14)
20. It would have to be “coincidence” that we know exactly when the 1,290 days end (Daniel 12:11)
21. It would have to be “coincidence” that we know exactly when the 1,335 days end (Daniel 12:12)
22. It would have to be “coincidence” that, for the first time in human history we KNOW, beyond any doubt, the identity of the Antichrist. (Daniel 7:6; Revelation 13:2)
23. It would have to be “coincidence” that for the first time in human history we can PROVE, BIBLICALLY and AUTHORITATIVELY that the Rapture takes place shortly after the tribulation begins and BEFORE any tribulation (trumpet) judgments take place. (Revelation 7:9-14)
24. Last but not least, it would have to be sheer “coincidence” that Messiah died on Passover which is THE MIDDLE OF a shemitta “week” or “seven”, as the prophecy requires. (Daniel 9:27)
It would have to be sheer “coincidence” that Messiah died IN THE MIDDLE OF the 70th week (Daniel 9:27) leaving ONLY HALF a week (3½ years) to complete the 70 weeks, which is the future tribulation. (Daniel 7:25; 12:7)
The Messiah HAD TO DIE to STRENGTHEN THE Abrahamic Covenant at HALF a “seven”. (Daniel 9:27)
That “HALF a seven” was 37 A.D.
Had Jesus been crucified EVEN A YEAR EARLIER, the Church would no longer be on earth. God’s judgments would be falling relentlessly. One third of mankind would have died.
And His Crucifixion couldn’t have happened ANYTIME AFTER 37 A.D. since Pilate was no longer in the Holy Land.
There simply is NO ALTERNATIVE.
If the odds of Jesus fulfilling ONLY 8 of the Old Testament prophecies by sheer “coincidence” are one in 10 to the 17th power, or one in ONE HUNDRED QUADRILLIONS.
The ODDS of 16 Old Testament prophecies (8 x 2) being fulfilled with regards to the Rapture and Second Coming must be AT LEAST TWICE GREATER.
Not to mention 24 SUCH PROPHECIES (or prophecy related events) (8 X 3).
For ALL THESE 24 THINGS to LINE UP SO PERFECTLY, and for them being “mere coincidence”, is almost AS IMPOSSIBLE AS Jesus NOT being the Messiah.

WHAT ABOUT 2022 ?
!! WARNING !! This message (What about 2022 ?) is wrong due to a miscalculation. For the sake of clarity, we keep it published. The error has been corrected later in the message "Shemittas are sevens" (published May 8 2018).
Could the Second Coming take place on Sukkot 2022, instead of Sukkot 2021 ?
I can now say, CATEGORICALLY: NO.
Shemittas are 7-year agricultural cycles that last ONE WHOLE YEAR, from Sukkot to Sukkot.
Jesus died, rose and ascended in 37 A.D., and the shemitta following that pivotal event ran from 40-41 A.D.
Counting from 40 A.D. the next shemitta begins in 2021 and runs until Sukkot 2022.
When I posted the 2018-2021 Tribulation Timeline (above this message) I wasn’t 100% sure.
That is why it shows the appropriate dates for 2018-2021 in yellow, followed by the dates in blue reflecting 2019 Rapture and 2022 Second Coming.
However, that is EXTREMELY UNLIKELY for these reasons :
3½ years 37 A.D. 3½ years
Sukkot Crucifixion Sukkot
33 A.D.________spring________40 A.D.
Since Jesus WAS crucified in spring 37 A.D.
If we count shemittas from 34 A.D. and 41 A.D. (instead of from 33 A.D. and 40 A.D.) which is how we would arrive at 2022 for the Second Coming:
2½ years 37 A.D. 4½ years
Sukkot Crucifixion Sukkot
34 A.D._________spring________41 A.D.
NOT HALF SHEMITTA
If 2019-2022 were the correct Timeline, then Jesus DIDN’T die at HALF SHEMITTA, as Scripture requires.
Then Jesus COULDN’T HAVE DIED in the “MIDDLE OF the week” to confirm (strengthen) the Abrahamic covenant as Daniel 9:27 requires, and WOULD NOT HAVE FULFILLED that prophecy.
2081-2021 matches PERFECTLY. 2019-2022 does NOT.
In addition to this, Jesus died AT MID-SHEMITTA (Passover, 37 A.D.) (John 19:14)
The SECOND order to return and build Jerusalem was given on Passover 1969 A.D.
The tribulation (and subsequent Rapture) MUST begin at HALF shemitta, since it’s the FINAL 3½ years of the 70th week.
Counting from HALF shemitta, the SECOND order to return and build Jerusalem in 1969 came EXACTLY 1,932 “sevens” from Jesus’ Crucifixion.
Counting from HALF shemitta, 7 “sevens” from Passover 1969 brings us to spring 2018 (for the tribulation and Rapture), NOT to spring 2019.
There’s that wonderful Scripture Deuteronomy 31:10:
“And Moses commanded them, saying, AT THE END OF EVERY SEVENTH YEAR, IN the solemnity of THE YEAR OF RELEASE (SHEMITTA), in the Feast of Tabernacles” (Chag HaSukkot)…
Shemitta years clearly run from Sukkot to Sukkot:
Therefore, the last shemitta cycle ran from:
Sukkot 2014-2015 Year 1
Sukkot 2015-2016 Year 2
Sukkot 2016-2017 Year 3
Sukkot 2017-2018 Year 4
Sukkot 2018-2019 Year 5
Sukkot 2019-2020 Year 6
Sukkot 2020-2021 Year 7
Sukkot 2021-2022 Year 8 (or Year 1 of the NEXT shemitta cycle)
If Jesus returns on Sukkot 2021, He’s returning at the END OF YEAR 7, as the 70 weeks prophecy requires.
If Jesus returned on Sukkot 2022, He’d return ON YEAR 8, PAST the “70 SEVENS”.
The seventy weeks prophecy requires that:
To finish the transgression
To make an end of sins
To make reconciliation for iniquity
To bring in everlasting righteousness,
TO SEAL UP THE VISION AND PROPHECY, and
to anoint the Holy of Holies (who is really Jesus, NOT some inner chamber in the temple made with hands)
Be accomplished IN 70 SEVENS, NOT in 70 sevens PLUS ONE YEAR. (Daniel 9:24)
Period: End of story.
The Second Coming must take place in 2021.
