Things Fall Apart – by Pete Garcia

The law that entropy increases—the Second Law of Thermodynamics—holds, I think, the supreme position among the laws of Nature. In fact, entropy appears to be the only true natural constant. All things fall apart, and human civilization is not exempt.

Sir Arthur Stanley Eddington

With all this talk of the New World Order, the New Normal, and the Age of Aquarius, I have become somewhat nostalgic for the old world order. Now, I know that as a Christian, this world is not our home and we are destined for glory upon glory into the eternal realm, but still, looking back over our lives, there were good and testing moments in our lives that made us who we are today.

We are living longer these days, which has caused an excess of generations to all be alive at the same time. From Centennials and Millennials to Generation X and Baby Boomers (even a few Silent Generation folk are still kicking around), the 20th-21st centuries has become a cornucopia of cross-generational experiences. Like many of you, I consider myself fortunate enough to have not only been born in the last century but also in the last millennium as well.

However, this idea of cross-millennial generations got me thinking about Dispensationalism and our current predicament as a nation. While easy to blame everything on Centennials (Gen Z, iGen [1996-Present]) on their general laziness and discontent for America, but can you blame them. Most grew up either right before or right after 9/11. They went from that to being a nation at war for almost 19 years. Right around the time they can get a job and start making money, the market crashes (2008). They then get eight-years of the abomination, I mean, the Obama Administration. They lived through H1N1, Ebola, COVID-1984, and every natural disaster known to man.

Yet, they were not the first generation to suffer. The Silent Generation (1945 and earlier) saw two World Wars, the Spanish Flu, and the Great Depression. Baby Boomers saw the Korean and Vietnamese Wars and the Hippy movement. Still, Centennials have one greater disadvantage than these previous generations, in that; they live in a largely Post-modern, Post-American, and Post-Christian world. Their lives are being earmarked by the upgrades in technology (pre/post iPhone)

Nevertheless, my thoughts of late regarding Dispensationalism has infinitely bordered more on the ambiguous than simply as a hermeneutical construct. It had more to do with the transition between dispensations rather than the dispensations themselves. At least the first two (Innocence and Conscience) had vastly different and physical ramifications in their before and after realities. For those who lived between them (Adam and Eve, Noah, and his family) the differences must have been shocking.

Within traditional Dispensationalism, there is a four-part organization regarding each particular age or epoch. The first part is the act, which separates it from the previous era. The second part is the challenge God gives mankind within that particular time period. The third is man’s failure to

live up to said challenge. The fourth part is the judgment regarding that particular failure. The late Dr. Charles Ryrie explains as follows-

The principal characteristic of a dispensation is the economic arrangement and responsibility that God reveals in each dispensation. Such responsibility is a test in itself. Most men fail the test, and then judgment follows. The dispensational scheme has two perspectives: a cross- sectional aspect (which is sometimes misconstrued as cycles but which is in reality a spiral) and a longitudinal aspect (which emphasizes the unfolding progress of revelation and continuing principles throughout the ages of the dispensations). (Source)

For example:

  •   The Age of Innocence began with man’s creation in paradise, their testing of the forbidden tree, and ended with the introduction of sin, death, and expulsion from the Garden of Eden (Genesis 1:26-27, 3:6-24; Romans 5:12)
  •   The Age of Conscience began with fallen man and God’s introduction of sacrifice (for temporary atonement), and ended with the divine depopulation plan via global flood (Gen. 3:21, 6:11-13, 7:11-24; Rom. 2:15)
  •   The Age of Human Government began with the Noahic Covenant and was modified with the global dispersion and confusion of tongues at Babel (Gen. 9:5, 11:5-9; Acts 17:26; Rom. 13:1-7)
  •   The Age of Promise began with the Abrahamic Covenant and ended with Egyptian bondage, anda generation not being able to enter into the Promised Land (Gen. 12-15, 26, 28; Numbers 14:26-36, 23:19; Micah 7:20; Rom. 11:29)
  •   The Age of the Law began with the giving of the Law by God to Moses at Mt. Sinai and endedwith the Jewish people crucifying their own promised Messiah (Exodus 19:1-8; Deuteronomy 7-8; Daniel 9:4-16; Matthew 27:25; Rom. 3:19-20)
  •   The Age of the Church began by the giving of the Holy Spirit after Jesus’s death, burial, andresurrection, and will end as chronicled by Jesus in His seven letters to the seven churches. The church age will culminate with a final church epoch sliding (minus the Philadelphian remnant) into wholesale apostasy (John 1:17; Acts 1:9-2:4; Titus 2:11-14; 1Pet 1:10-12; Rev. 3:15-16)
  •   The Millennial Age will begin the Second Coming of Christ at Armageddon, which will introduce a 1,000-year reign of righteousness and peace upon the earth. It will end with the loosening of Satan at the end of that reign and conclude with one final rebellion that God immediately crushes, thus ushering in the Great White Throne Judgment (Matt. 25:31-34; Rev. 20:4-6, 7-15)Thus, Dispensationalism is not just some theological “construct” teasing out academic particulars so that it can be different from other interpretations like Reformed Theology or Roman Catholicism. The failures found in Dispensational theology’s dispensations uniquely validates God’s word both by history and current events. Simply look around today and look at the strength of the denominational churches. See how watered down and diluted they have become. The modern church has suffered death by a thousand cuts, splintering and crushing professing Christendom under the weight of political correctness, governmental overreach, and the deconstruction of civil society. The failures highlighted by Dispensational theology has everything to do with the reality we are currently living in, the future of America and the Church, and the end of our age.

Assessment

Then the devil, taking Him up on a high mountain, showed Him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said to Him, “All this authority I will give You, and their glory; for this has been delivered to me, and I give it to whomever I wish. Therefore, if You will worship before me, all will be Yours.” Luke 4:5-7

Throughout Satan’s long history on planet earth, his desire has always been for there to be one system he could command and control for his own purposes. From Babel until today, he has with limited success, ruthlessly used individuals, kingdoms, geography, resources, religion, mythology, and all sorts of machinations to try to achieve this end. While it is true that many were taking the broad path that leads to hell, thus, Satan was achieving a backhanded victory of sorts, he only really cares about where he spends eternity. He is feverishly trying to derail Bible prophecy so he can, somehow (in his mind), make God break His own word. Mankind was progressing too slowly, and like herding cats, mankind’s free will was becoming increasingly problematic for Satan. Which is why the Industrial and Technological Revolutions were so convenient and necessary.

It is no mistake that for the past 4,000 years, man was limited to the speed of horse. God intentionally put the brakes on us back at the Tower of Babel (Genesis 11:6). It is also no mistake that here in the last 150 years; mankind’s technological innovation has evolved exponentially. Therefore, it is in the last 70 years or so that Satan has increasingly turned towards the use of this technological evolution to push humanity over the edge into his dark, dystopian dream.

The great industrial and technological achievements of mankind over the past two centuries were all hailed as our great achievements and upward mobility: global travel, global communications, and the development of information technologies. These were meant to make our lives easier. Instead, they have complicated our lives. Complicated geopolitics. Compounded the threats we face on a daily basis. The same technology that was supposed to make our lives better will one day enslave humanity. Nevertheless, Satan has unregenerate man so blinded by the shiny bells and whistles that they believe they are evolving into some newer, better version of themselves. Mankind is so enamored by the idea of becoming superhuman (thanks in part to Hollywood and pop fiction) that many are literally rushing headfirst to put the mark of the beast prototype technology into/onto their bodies.

Satan is using technology to mass-produce fear and anxiety on a global scale so that people willingly turn over their liberty for peace and safety. This has become an increasingly useful twist of fate, as man has entered headfirst into the Digital Age. Actually, the age we are in now has many different names, because we are converging into so many different spectrums of maturation as a species: Information Age, Computer Age, Post-Modern Era, and Fourth Industrial Revolution.

It is interesting to me that we are now living through the greatest prophetic convergences of events in 2,000 years; yet, the Church Age is also culminating at the same moment information is being weaponized at a terrifying rate. The effect is you would hardly notice our proximity to the end, given the silence of most pulpits. I wonder if the deception Jesus warned us about repeatedly in His Olivet Discourse was not just deception by commission, but by omission as well.

Nevertheless, you cannot have this New World Order, without blowing up the old one first. Therefore, the fact that we have seven dispensations, as opposed to having just one, means each has ended (or will end) with Satan’s fingerprints all over it. Satan’s efforts to pervert, corrupt, and silence our generations, have been effective. Everything (Creation, marriage, gender, history, science, truth, etc.), are on the table for redefinition.

It makes sense though. He has to ramp up the fake news, the misdirection, increasingly polarizing bias, and deep fakes because he knows his time is short. Now he has the global stage and microphone to promote his satanic agenda. He knows the Rapture is about to happen. He already has his army of disinformation agents seeding the ground for the great delusion (via propaganda), so when the Rapture happens, he can consolidate his power. Although we do not know exactly when the Rapture of the Church will finally provide Satan the necessary crisis, he can use to bring all of the world’s governments together.

Conclusion

As the world is coming to the end of our present dispensation, it is in the process of tearing itself apart politically and ideologically. It is only natural for believers to want the country they live in to turn back to God. We are seeing calls for revival, repentance, and a return to prayer. While those things, in and of themselves, it is, however, not how things will turn out. This is not about my pessimism, nor dispensational doom and gloom theology, but a predetermined end for how the Bible says the world will turn out.

Ø Enoch said they would be filled with the ungodly preserved for destruction. (Jude 1:14-15)

Ø Jeremiah was told that this would be a time called “Jacob’s Trouble,” in which God would destroy all the nations of the earth and discipline Israel. (Jeremiah 30:7-11)

Ø Daniel was told they would be fearful times, with people full of knowledge, traveling back and forth across the earth. (Dan. 7:7, 12:1, 4)

Ø Zechariah was shown how the world would become infatuated with dividing Israel at a cost of their own destruction. (Zech. 12:2)

Ø Jesus warned about it saying deception would be rampant, and this time will culminate in the worst period of human history ever. (Matt. 24)

Ø The Apostle Paul called them perilous times, where many would depart from the faith. (2 Tim. 3)

Ø The Apostle Peter said they would be filled with scoffers and people walking after their own lusts (2 Peter 3)

Ø Jude compared the ancient apostates, to the ones who would come in the last days. (Jude 1:12- 15)

Ø The Apostle John said the spirit of antichrist was already at work in the world and was shown how it would be amplified into the physical coming of Satan’s chosen man in the final week of years. (1 John 2:18, Revelation 6:1-2, 13)

While we, the Church, should actively pray for repentance as a nation and for revival, we should be discouraged neither by our efforts nor by the results. Revival and repentance are never mainstays in our world. They are temporary endeavors because the unregenerate human heart is incurably wicked (Jer. 17:9). It is not that God is not listening, for many in the world are still coming to saving faith. It is because God is even now, in the process, of giving people over to their sins and delusions. The wicked are hardening their hearts because of the mercy of God, not for lack of it. God did not delay the flood because of a lack of converts. He gave ample warning through Enoch, Methuselah, and Noah.

The Holy Spirit filled Church (the body of Christ) is the restraining force of evil on the planet. Denominations are not the Restrainers, but the body of believers whom through the Holy Spirit works to fulfill God’s plan, is the restraint, holding back evil, wholesale. As the power and authority of the true church diminishes, darkness has begun to creep back over the land. That is not to say the forces of evil (principalities and powers) have not wrought evil and wickedness upon this earth, because clearly they have. However, the fervent prayers of a righteous man (men and women), availeth much (James 5:16). We have been able to effectively, keep evil at bay from completely taking over this planet.

Thus, our time has become increasingly dark and heavy. Spiritual oppression and alienation are at an all-time high for believers. However, you are not alone. As Ambassadors of Christ, we have to remember, we are not here to change the policies of this fallen planet. We cannot; that is not the role of ambassadors. That would be like trying to fix minor plumbing issues on the Titanic after it has already struck the iceberg and is listing to one side. This ship is going down, and we do not have the means to fix it, nor is it in the plan of God to repair Satan’s busted ship. Imagine the Titanic, having struck the iceberg, but is now disabled, sinking, and now, in the path of a massive Category 5 hurricane. That is what is coming.

As Ambassadors of Christ, we are here as representatives of our Heavenly Father and His Kingdom. We are here to bring as many people WITH us in the upcoming rescue operation from planet earth. However, God has both the power and ability to hold back the winds of the coming storm, until His perfect timing. He will not declare war on this planet until He has removed His ambassadors from enemy territory first.

Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth. Behold, I am coming quickly! Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown. He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go out no more. I will write on him the name of My God and the name of the city of My God, the New Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God. And I will write on him My new name.

The End of the Age: A Plausible Timeline

The End of the Age: A Plausible Timeline

By Pete Garcia and Randy Nettles

There are few prophecies in the Bible that are both as perplexing, and yet, irrefutable, as the coming war of Gog and Magog. This 2,500-year-old prophecy had appeared all but impossible for at least 2,000 of those 2,500 years, primarily because, Israel did not exist as a sovereign nation. Furthermore, the geopolitical confederation described in Ezekiel 38-39, has never happened before historically. However, since the turn of the 20th-century, the evolving geopolitical landscape appeared to be unfolding in such a manner that seemed to be laying an undeniable (or inescapable) foundation for this particular prophecy to come to pass. Even heads of state were wondering, albeit erroneously, if they were not in some manner, fulfilling this particular event.

Gog and Magog are at work in the Middle East… The biblical prophecies are being fulfilled… This confrontation is willed by God, who wants to use this conflict to erase his people’s enemies before a New Age begins. 

Quote attributed to Pres. George W. Bush by French Pres. Jacques Chirac circa 2003 (Source)

First, some basic clarification about the intent of this particular joint effort between Randy and me. We both believe we should always exercise discernment between the knowable and unknowable prophetic events described in Scripture. For instance, even though we know and agree that the Rapture of the Church will happen before the Tribulation (Daniel’s 70th Week), we are not going to know when exactly (i.e., day or hour), because Jesus Himself said as much (Matt. 24:36).  However, that is the only prophetic event we are specifically told we cannot know the day or hour. Nevertheless, we are told that we can and should know the season (years) of the Rapture based on the biblical signs given to us (1st Thess. 5:1-4). In other words, we know we are close, but we cannot see exactly how close. Since the Rapture sets in motion the rest of the events surrounding Daniel’s 70th Week, it makes our attempt here, our best theory. 

Secondly, there is the issues of logistics and realism. The simple fact of the matter is that certain prophecies take a considerable amount of geopolitical/ technological/ economic/ political/ military muscle-movement to go from concept to reality. In other words, prophetic fulfillment does not usually happen in a vacuum. Granted, with God, all things are possible, so I am not saying He cannot or does not do the impossible. However, (with few exceptions) God has chosen to use/allow natural processes to come to their own prophetic fulfillment often without direct divine intervention. More often than not, the divine intervention usually comes after a prophetic event is already in motion, as we will see concerning Ezekiel’s prophecy. Thus, if Ezekiel 38-39 falls into the knowable category (I believe it does given the necessary geopolitical groundwork), then we can move from the how/why it happens, to simply, when.

Assessment

While this article primarily deals with the Gog-Magog war as a fulcrum of sorts, it is unquestionably tied into the prophetic events both preceding and succeeding it as well. I believe the Gog/Magog war of Ezekiel 38 – 39 takes place shortly after the Rapture of the Church, but before the seven-year Tribulation (aka Daniel’s 70th Week). However, if true, then it must occur at least seven years before the “in the midst’ moment of the abomination of desolation as described in Matthew 24:15-22. This is because according to Ezekiel, the Jews would burn the weapons of the armies of the nations that attacked them for a period of seven years (Ezekiel 39:9-10).  

Simultaneous too and juxtaposed with this same period of time, is the warning Jesus gives in His Olivet Discourse (Matthew 24:15-17). Here, He warned that when they (that generation) sees the abomination of desolation spoken of by the prophet Daniel that they should flee to the mountains. He said that the Jews living in Israel should not waste time getting items out of their house, not even their clothes, but to flee for their lives. Now, if this is the case, then the Jews that are fleeing will not be bothering to burn weapons or continue doing any type of cleanup operations in a post-Magog War world. The weapons should have already been burned up by this time.

While we cannot be dogmatic about the exact timing of this certain event, we must consider some things. Bearing in mind two things: logistics, and pattern. Wars are extremely logistics driven. You have to have soldiers, equipment, and motive all in check and ready to go long before you can actually pull the trigger. Secondly, this prophecy is concerning the nation of Israel. Almost everything biblically comes to some pattern concerning national Israel and her feast days. These feast days are divinely appointed events that affect national Israel, and given the propensity for God to use holy feast days as done in the past, we can look over the next decade to see which dates align the best.

“The Gog/Magog war will start on Kislev 24 of the Jewish calendar. Haggai describes this war in a very similar way that Ezekiel does with the Gog/Magog war. Haggai even gives the date… the 24th day of the 9th month. Compare Haggai 2:18-22 with Ezekiel 38:18-22.

The Rapture will precede the Gog/Magog war. I believe it will only be a small gap of time of months and not years. Of course, this is just an educated guess, as the Bible doesn’t speak on this issue. After the Rapture, the U.S. of America will no longer be militarily capable to protect Israel against Russia and her allies. They will only be able to give a mild protest to the U.N. regarding this invasion (Ezekiel 38:13).” {1} 

If this is true, that means there will be four years between this war and the start of the Tribulation. The years of 2022-2029 for the 2nd Coming does not fit within these parameters as there is not enough time for the seven-year interval (Gog/Magog war-Abomination of Desolation) to occur. The earliest this seven-year interval could happen is 2024-2031. For this date to be correct, the Gog/Magog war would have to begin on Dec.9, 2020. While it is possible, I think it is highly unlikely it could happen this soon. 

 

The years 2025-2032 allow for a little more time for this war to occur, but there is nothing prophetically significant about the dates in this time period. The one that really “stands out” is 2026-2033. The dates line up well with the Feasts of the Lord and other important Jewish historical anniversaries. Of course, the most important aspect of this seven-year timeline is that the year 2033 will commemorate the 2000th year since Jesus was last seen on planet earth. In addition, the years A.D. 33 and 2026 align up perfectly on both the Jewish and Gregorian calendar as described in In the Midst: Part III.  This alignment also correlates with the Church’s conception AD 33 and with the start of the future Tribulation in the year AD 2026, when the Antichrist signs/confirms the peace covenant with Israel and the many for seven years.

 

Here are the end-time events and dates for this period, as well as some pre-Tribulation events and their speculative dates.  Of course, these dates are best guesses, but they seem to make sense as God has frequently orchestrated certain important events for Israel to occur on the same day of the month (Jewish calendar). That will be an article for another time. I have listed the events in what I believe to be chronological order.

 

PRE-TRIBULATION EVENTS – A.D. 2020-2026

 

  1. Rapture – The date is unknown, but in this example, it will come before the Gog/Magog war and possibly, in conjunction with the Isaiah 17 war, which occurs in the latter part of 2022.

 

    1. Worldwide chaos and panic will ensue. Deaths will ensue due to car, bus, truck, and plane crashes.  Accidents and murders will skyrocket. Babies, toddlers, small children, and adults (mostly older Christian men and women) will disappear.  If you think the rioting is bad now, just wait (no don’t) until the Rapture occurs. Of course, the worst will be in the United States, as we have more Christians spread throughout our social strata than in any other nation. This will be the beginning of the demise of America as the dominant power in the world.
    2. A one-world-government, presumably led by the United Nations, will emerge, with the financial backing of the Central Banks and their owners; as well as the super-rich globalist elites, such as George Soros, Bill Gates, Rockefellers, etc. The United States will have no choice but to join and become part of this global government. If you think our government is bad now, just wait (no don’t) until you experience the ineptitude and mismanagement of this socialist and technocratic nightmare. It will get so bad, that illegal immigrants will try to sneak out of the United States to get back to their home country. America will soon become just another third world country. The experiment known as the United States of America will have failed, as all governments and countries have because of their sins against God.

 

  1. Pre-Tribulation birth pangs (Matthew 24:8) occurring after the Rapture but before the Tribulation:

 

    1. Wars, mostly regional conflicts, will break out throughout the planet. China – India, India – Pakistan, China – Japan, North Korea – South Korea, Turkey – Russia, Iran (Hamas, Hezbollah) – Israel, are a few examples. These could start as early as 2021.
    2. Isaiah 17 War between Syria and Israel. Damascus will be obliterated by some sort of weapon of mass destruction (possibly nuclear) and will forever cease to be a city. Thus, the oldest inhabited city of the world will be no more. I believe this will occur in the “dog days of summer” replicating the Six-Day War between Israel and her enemies, Egypt and Syria, that occurred in 1967. For more information go here. It took the Israelites only six days to defeat their old foes…June 5- 10. I believe the Isaiah 17 War could occur on this anniversary date: June 5-10, 2022. The Rapture could happen any time between now and this date, approximately 20 months.
    3. Psalm 83 War between Israel and the neighboring Arab nations. This war may or may not occur, as this chapter is a prayer from Asaph, King David’s seer, to God regarding destroying the enemies that surrounded Israel at the time. There is no answer from God that is recorded in the Bible, regarding the acceptance of this prayer.
    4. Ezekiel 38-39 War between Israel and a confederacy of nations that include Russia, Iran, and Turkey. This war must occur seven years before the Abomination of Desolation that takes place “in the midst” of the Tribulation as described above. This God-intervening, supernatural event may occur on Kislev 24 of the Jewish calendar and December 17, 2022 on our modern Gregorian calendar.

 

  1. Breakup of the U.N. led global government and the formation of the ten kings/ten kingdoms government (the Beast). This could be as early as 2023. Ten of the kings will rule until 2030. Seven of the ten will rule until 2033. These ones survive the Antichrist’s attacks and relinquish their authority to him before the last 3.5 years of the Tribulation. Some wars will continue but eventually the Ten Kings will have relative peace for a year or two.

 

  1. Arrival of an “eleventh” king, the Antichrist, onto the world scene in 2025.  He is probably a great general from some European country and is expanding his territory into three of the king’s lands. They will have battles and wars for several years into the fall of 2026. He shall be different from the first 10 kings, and shall eventually subdue three of them, per Daniel 7:24.

 

  1. Beginning of 144,000 Jewish evangelical’s ministry of Revelation 7:1-8 on the Day of Atonement, Tishri 10, 2026. The date on our Gregorian calendar will be September 20, 2026. The duration of their ministry is not given in the Bible.

 

  1. The beginning of the Two Witness’s ministry.  I believe it is Moses representing the law, and Elijah representing the prophets. Revelation 11:3-6 describe their powers that God gives them over their enemies; “I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and three-score days, clothed in sackcloth. If any man tries to hurt them, fire proceeds out of their mouth, and devours their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed. These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy, and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.” 

 

These verses describe the miracles that these two Old Testament prophets performed during their ministry….calling fire from heaven (Elijah) and tuning blood to water (Moses). God always has commanded for the truth of the matter to be determined by at least two witnesses. These two witness will preach the gospel and truth to the inhabitants of Jerusalem and the world for 1,260 days. I believe the start of their ministry will occur one month before the start of the Tribulation on November 10, 2026/ Heshvan 21, 2026. The reason for this date will be made known as we continue with our timeline of end time events. This is the last Pre-Tribulation event to occur before Jacob’s Trouble/ Daniel’s 70th Seven officially starts.  

 

TRIBULATION EVENTS – A.D. 2026-2033

 

  1. The official start of the seven-year Tribulation (Jacob’s Trouble, Daniel’s 70th Week, Day of the Lord, etc.) occurs when the Antichrist signs a peace covenant with Israel for seven years. The Antichrist will “sweeten the deal (of the century)” for Israel by allowing the Jews to build their Temple in Jerusalem. In return, Israel will give up some land for the Palestinians and possibly relinquishing their nuclear weapons. I expect this will happen on November 29, 2026 or Kislev 20 on the Jewish calendar. This date is 19 days after the start of the Two Witness’s ministry. There is that weird 19 number again that keeps popping up for the Jewish people. 

 

According to Revelation 6:2, the Antichrist is considered powerful as he is given a crown, and is carrying a bow, which represents a weapon. However, he has no arrows, so he is seen as a “man of peace”. This event coincides with the first seal being opened by Jesus in heaven. The Antichrist is the rider on the white horse who comes to take peace from the world.

 

  1. After the worst deal of the century with the Antichrist, the Jews begin construction on their new (third) Temple in Jerusalem. This begins on December 3, 2026, which is Kislev 24 in Israel. This is the day before Hanukkah, Kislev 25. Three very important events for the Jews have occurred on this date regarding the two Jewish Temples of the past.

 

    1. The abolition of the Temple sacrifice and desecration by Antiochus Epiphanes on Dec. 11, 167 B.C. 
    2. The recapture of the Temple and the cleansing of the Temple Sanctuary on Dec. 9, 164 B.C. This is exactly three years to the day (Jewish calendar) after Epiphanes desecrated it in 167.
    3. The foundation of the Second Temple was laid on Dec. 11, 520 B.C.

 

  1. The Antichrist continues his campaign against the three Kings. It will take him three years (2027-2030) before he subdues and kills them. Presumably, these would be leaders from the three most powerful nations who remained intact after the Rapture. He is then made Emperor of the World by the remaining seven kings. They will give their authority to him at this time and he will become the absolute ruler of the world (for a little while).

 

  1. The Jews will complete construction on their third Temple on Nov. 17, 2029, Kislev 24, exactly three years (Jewish calendar) to the day that it had begun. The next day on Hanukkah, they will begin the daily sacrifices on their new altar. As it took 3 years for the Jews to re-claim and cleanse their Second Temple (from Antiochus Epiphanes’ desecration) in the past, so it will take three years to complete the Third Temple of Jerusalem. The Jews will not get in a hurry to build this most prized structure. 

 

  1. The Antichrist defeats the forces of the three Kings and is given his crown. The date is Nisan 1 (first of the year) which occurs on April 2, 2030. He now, finally, has absolute control (or so he thinks) over the whole world.

 

  1. The infamous “in the midst” (middle) event of the Tribulation is of course called the Abomination of Desolation. This will occur 1,230 days (some say 1260) after the start of the Tribulation. In this example, the date is April 12, 2030/Nisan 10. Nisan 10 is the day that Jesus rode into Jerusalem, humbly, on the back of a donkey as the King of the Jews. However, his own people rejected Him, and he was crucified four days later on Nisan 14, A.D.33. 

 

The un-holy trinity of Satan, Antichrist, and the False Prophet will attempt to imitate these same events. The Antichrist will be killed on Passover, April 16, 2030/Nisan 14, and resurrected three days later on April 19, Nisan 17 as Jesus was in A.D.33 (Jewish calendar). His first act after the Abomination of Desolation as “King of the Jews,” will be to kill the Jews and try to finish the job that Hitler began. Whereas Hitler killed one-third of the Jews, the Antichrist will kill two-thirds. The Jews will flee to Petra, Jordan where the Lord will supernaturally protect them for 1,260 days (until Jesus returns at the Second Coming). 

 

Empowered by Satan, the Antichrist will kill the Two Witnesses on this day, fulfilling the prophecy of their 1,260 day (Nov. 10, 2026 – April 12, 2030) appointed ministry. What a tragic day it will be indeed! This is the day of decision for the peoples of the world to accept the “mark of the beast” or not. To not accept the mark is a sure death sentence. To accept it means you will go to the Lake of Fire for eternity. Once this “tattoo” (or whatever kind of mark it is) is on you, it remains with you forever. This is the point in human history where literally “all Hell breaks loose” on earth and the judgments of God become intensely severe. It known as the “Great Tribulation.”

 

  1. On April 23, 2030/Nisan 21, three and one half days after the Antichrist kills the Two Witnesses, they are miraculously resurrected and raptured into heaven with the whole world watching. The cameras watch them as they come back to life and slowly rise into the atmosphere until they can no longer be seen. 

 

  1. 1,260 days after the abomination of desolation, Jesus will return (Second Coming) to the earth at the Battle of Armageddon. The date will be Sept. 23, 2033 or Tishri 1 on the Jewish calendar. He will return on the Feast of the Lord known as Trumpets, thus fulfilling the sixth Feast of the Lord. It will have been 2000 years since Jesus last walked the earth. 2000 years is as two days for the Lord and two days is as 2000 years. (Hosea 6:2, Psalm 90:4, 2 Peter 3:8)

 

  1. On the Day of AtonementOct. 2, 2033/Tishri 10, the Jewish people will mourn for the one they pierced and will atone for their national sin against the Lord. “And I will pour my spirit…” (Zechariah 12:10). This will be the ultimate fulfillment of the sixth Feast of the Lord, the Day of Atonement.

 

  1. Jesus will tabernacle (reside) with his people during the eight days of the seventh Feast of the Lord known as Tabernacles. This is the ultimate feast of great joy for the people and is a prelude to the Millennium Kingdom, which will officially start in eight more days. The date is October 7-15, 2033 /Tishri 15-23. 

 

  1. The sheep and goat judgment of Matthew 25:31-46 takes place the last week of the last week of Daniels’ 70th seven from Oct.16-23, 2033/Tishri 23-30.  All living believers of the Tribulation will be judged and either condemned to Sheol or rewarded to enter the Kingdom of God/Millennium Kingdom. The last day of October 23, 2033 will have concluded 6,000 years of human history.

The next day, October 24, 2033, will be the first day of the millennial reign of Jesus Christ as King of kings and Lord of lords. It will be Heshvan 1 on the Jewish calendar. Satan, nor his demons will not be found on earth, nor their hideous influence felt for a thousand years. The earth will become like the Garden of Eden again; Eden 2.0 will commence. This will last for one-thousand years until at the end; Satan is loosed for a short season. 

We do not know how long this season is, but it is enough time for him to attempt one last rebellion against God and His chosen people (Rev. 20:7-10). Gog and Magog 2.0 (this millennial confederation of the unregenerate wicked) attempts to surround Jerusalem and wipe Jesus off the face of the earth. However, the battle is over before it even begins, as fire comes down from heaven and consumes the wicked. After this, the Great White Throne Judgment, where the wicked from all ages, are judged and condemned to the Lake of Fire for all eternity.

Beyond this is the realm of the eternal. Although the Bible does go into some detail (Revelation 20-21), the former things are passed away. God destroys our old heaven and earth, and makes an even better one that will last for eternity. It will not take Him six days to create, but will be instantaneous. Reality will finally become the way it was always intended to be, with God physically dwelling amongst His people. Moreover, we, as His children, will inherit it all!  

Amen, even so, come Lord Jesus.

The Deal of the Century

Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week;
But in the middle of the week
He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering.
And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate,
Even until the consummation, which is determined,
Is poured out on the desolate. Daniel 9:27

In 1993, a newly elected President Clinton hosted the Oslo Peace Accords in the White House Rose Garden. This was hailed to be the end of a six-year violent Palestinian uprising known as the First Intifada. However, seven-years later, the Oslo Peace Accords were in tatters as violence began again. Not only did it bring about a bloody and violent second intifada, it also splintered the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) into a second faction, Hamas, which would come to take control of the Gaza Strip. The Second Intifada signaled the end of this utopic hallucination of Middle East peace, as well as, much speculation by prophecy watchers about whether Oslo was Daniel 9:27 in the making.

Fast forward through time for the next 20-years: 9/11, US military wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, global economic mortgage and bank crisis, the Arab Spring, ISIS, Libyan and Syrian Civil War peace in the Middle East seemed as dead a prospect as bell-bottoms, disco, and mullets.

But God.

Not only did the most unlikely candidate, win the most seemingly unwinnable election, but Donald Trump had an ace up his sleeve…God’s timing.

It would seem that 1993 was not the right time or the right place, nor Clinton, Rabin, or Arafat the right players. Even before running for office, Donald J. Trump had a decades-long, personal friendship with Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu. His son-in-law, Jared Kushner, along with his daughter Ivanka Trump, are practice Orthodox Judaism.

Then-candidate Trump campaigned on the promise to not only recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s undivided capital, but he also promised to move our embassy there.

Then he did.

Then President (Art of the Deal) Trump had the audacity to declare the coming “Deal of the Century,” between Israel and the Arab world on January 28, 2020. Then the Chinese Corona-virus swept the globe. Democrats and globalists were slow to abandon their failed impeachment attempt and recognize the breadth and scope of just how far reaching the virus would spread, but they were quick to politicize it once they did. It seemed as if the whole forces of the world were stacked against this peace process from moving forward. Then the details and news of the “Deal of the Century” went silent. Prophecy watchers waited in anticipation for any new, news of this coming peace deal. After a summer of protests, riots, statue desecrations, and anarchy wore on, the threat of the virus began to wane that the news broke in early August that the United Arab Emirates (UAE) would sign a normalization agreement with Israel.

What makes the recent (August 2020) Jared Kushner/Trump deal (dubbed the Abraham Accord) with the United Arab Emirates and now Bahrain as well, unique, is that it offers not just peace, but full normalization. That means shared airspace. Shared technologies. Opening economies. Tourism. Everything. Quoting Daymond Duck-

Kushner believes another Arab nation will make peace with Israel in a matter of months and all 22 Arab nations will eventually recognize the existence of Israel (Note: On Sept. 3, 2020, it was reported that Bahrain will likely normalize relations before Rosh Hashanah, Sept. 18, and as many as 20 Muslim nations could do it in the next two months).

On Sept. 5, 2020, it was reported that Israel and the UAE anticipate signing their agreement in Washington, D.C. during the week of Sept. 14, and they will call their agreement a “treaty of peace.” (Source)

But what is a peace treaty? Is it just a declaration that two nations will officially decide not to march their troops into each other’s cities or stop shooting missiles at each other? Yes and no. Yes, it is an official end of hostilities, for whatever that is worth, but it is not a guarantee of the desired end-state- normalization.

Normalization speaks to the improved relations in all sectors of public and private life and governance. It is diplomatic, it is economic, it is technological, and its improved relations from the street-level all the way up to the heads of state.

For example, even though Jordan and Egypt have peace treaties with Israel, Jews would not step foot in their countries for fear of death. Thus, peace did not bring normalization. Sure, Jordan and Egypt were not firing rockets and attacking Israel anymore, but Jews were not lining up to go there for vacations. Egyptians were not lining up to buy Jewish goods. The importance of normalization is the removal of the stigma of each other’s existence as nations and peoples. For the Jews, this is paramount.

The agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates promises to establish normal relations between the two countries. These include business relations, tourism, direct flights, scientific cooperation, and, in time, full diplomatic ties at the ambassadorial level. The Emiratis are unlikely, however, to locate their embassy in Jerusalem. An important component of the Abraham Accord, though not specifically spelled out, is enhanced security cooperation against regional threats, especially from Iran and its proxies. It is important to note that Israel and the UAE reportedly already have security ties, but the agreement brings them into the open. (Source)

The Abraham Accord, aptly named for its importance to the three major monotheistic religions (Judaism, Christianity, and Islam) is a reverse approach to the Oslo Peace Accords. Instead of trying to get the Palestinians to abandon their impossible demands (e.g., 1967 boundaries, right of return, division of Jerusalem), the Abraham Accord works from the outside in. Setting aside any division of land or halting of Jewish expansion by way of settlements, it’s aims are to build a coalition of Arab nations who through normalization, put pressure on the Palestinians to get on board the ‘peace train.’ Israel, in return, gets normalization from upwards of 22 of her Arab-neighbors. Aside from Egypt and Jordan who already have peace deals with Israel, the two nations of UAE and Bahrain have joined the Abraham Accord. Presumably, many others will follow suit, especially when Trump wins reelection.

 Most important is to establish a new regional alliance, based on the Arab Peace Initiative first proposed by Saudi Arabia in 2002 that is still valid until today. It would actually be a defense treaty between Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, Jordan and Israel. Its strategic goal would be building a military and technological shield against Iran. It would develop and produce a Star Wars-like project much like President Ronald Reagan’s to forestall and pre-empt the Iranian ballistic nuclear arsenal; this would be the result of scientific and financial cooperation among the member states. This new alliance will have additional defensive tasks in thwarting terrorism and subversion in the Middle East. (Source)

Of course, the number one factor driving all of this for Israel is peace. The number factor from the Arab perspective is security. In other words, for the first time in history, the two sides (Jews and Arabs) have a valid reason to unite. For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape. 1st Thess. 5:3.

UAE, and presumably the rest of the Gulf States due to their proximity, fear Iran more than they hate Israel. Nevertheless, the Palestinians are not having any of this. With President Trump moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem and his halting of financial aid to them, there is no love lost between this administration and the divided Palestinian political factions (PLO and Hamas). Still, with normalization efforts ongoing with the Arab world, the Palestinians days may be numbered.

Within the region, Bahrain, Egypt, Jordan, and Oman publicly welcomed the Abraham Accord. Saudi Arabia has remained silent, though there is significant speculation among analysts that this nonreaction is a sign that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman supports the agreement but is constrained because his father, the king, opposes normalization with Israel. Iran, Qatar, and Turkey have all criticized the accord, with the latter threatening to withdraw its ambassador from Abu Dhabi. Civil society organizations throughout the region remain steadfast in their opposition to normalizing relations with Israel. These include groups in the Gulf, which have spoken out specifically against the Israeli-Emirati agreement. (Source)

Gog, Magog, and the Axis of Resistance

In 2006, in the midst of a fierce war between Israel and the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah, former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice famously stated that the world was witnessing the “birth pangs of a new Middle East.” She was right—but not in the sense she had hoped. Instead of disempowering Hezbollah and its sponsor, Iran, the war only augmented the strength and prestige of what is known as the “axis of resistance,” a power bloc that includes Iran, Iraq, Syria, Hezbollah, and Hamas in Palestine. (Source) (2017)

In 1979, two significant revolutions took place in the Middle East. Most remember the dramatic Iranian revolution with the over throw of the Shah and taking over the US Embassy in Tehran. However, the other revolution was in Saudi Arabia. This was the same year that the Wahhabis took their Islamic conservativism to extremes in what had been a moderate, Sunni Muslim nation. Forty-years, fracking, and a technologically advanced world later, the Saudis have had to come to terms with their own demons. They realized after 9/11, how toxic they had become as well as realizing that their oil wealth would not last forever. They had to find new streams of revenue to finance their otherwise, resource strapped-nation. Nevertheless, this attempt at reform did not sway the Wahhabi purists in Saudi Arabia who wanted to fund their endless Jihad.

The Iranian Regime on the other hand, have not yet come to terms with their extremism. Granted, it is more the regime (leadership) than the people themselves who still maintain its suicidal and homicidal ideations, but the government still has the keys to the kingdom. Their “Twelver” eschatology is driving them to bring chaos to the world in order to unleash their Mahdi, and ultimately, the end of days. 

Millenarianism, or “end of days” messianic speculation, is thriving and evolving — and being weaponized by both Sunni and Shia radical movements – as evidenced by the Islamic State on one side, and Hezbollah and other Iranian proxies on the other. While still limited and contained, the potential of such visions to metastasize and explode into conflict is considerable. In both the Sunni and Shia domains, millenarianism is gaining in relevance, substance, and structure.  This essay considers the origins and dynamics of this movement and concludes with a brief suggestion about how best to counter it. (Source)

The Sunnis attempted to match the Twelver’s devotion to the end-time by unleashing the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), but ultimately ran into a brick wall called the last Trump. Donald Trump that is. With ISIS defeated in Trump’s first year of office, and the Muslim Brotherhood on the outs pretty much everywhere, the Saudis had secretly turned to Trump and Israel as means of last resorts. An undercurrent of secret communications/discussions/agreements finally became known this year with the evolution of the Abraham Accord. 

This turn of events has given new life to Iran’s extremism. With the Iranian people largely on the outs with their own government (see Green Revolution), Iran (formerly Persia) has had to outsource much of their violence to disenfranchised Middle Easterner’s and North Africans to rebuild their Shiite Caliphate. However, Turkey’s Prime Minister/Autocrat, Tayyip Erdogan, would not, could not; let Iran run away with the monopoly on caliphate building. Erdogan was determined to restore the might and greatness of the Ottoman Empire. According to Efraim Inbar, the president of the Jerusalem Institute for Strategy and Security said this,

He noted that Erdoğan is not only a leader with an Islamist ideology, but a realpolitik player. Turkey is in Iraq and Syria, and has a military base in Qatar and in Somalia. Erdoğan tried to build a base in Sudan, and now he is busy in Libya. As part of this new Turkish nationalism, he is challenging the border with Greece, essentially seeking to reverse the 1923 Treaty of Lausanne, which officially ended the Ottoman Empire.

“There is a fusion here of nationalism and Islamism between Turkish nationalism with its roots in Islam, the Caliphate and the Ottoman Empire,” said Inbar. “There is a clear alliance between Turkey and Qatar, which both support the Muslim Brotherhood.” (Source)

Just as the Jews and Arabs are finding common ground, primarily over common enemies, the same holds true for this growing Axis of Resistance. For the first time in history, both Turkey and Iran (who formerly held major empires over the Middle East) now find themselves with their aligned interests. While this is a bit of speculation on my part, the Ayatollah and Erdogan may want to split their Caliphate down the middle, much the same way the Roman Empire eventually split between eastern and western halves. What they also have in common, is a neutral-ally by the name of Russia who is helping arm and manage their forces throughout the region.

MOSCOW – The leaders of Russia, Turkey and Iran on Wednesday discussed efforts to stabilize Syria in a video call, emphasizing the need to promote a political settlement for the nine-year conflict. Russia and Iran have staunchly supported Syrian President Bashar Assad throughout the country’s war, while Turkey has backed his foes. However, the three countries have pooled their efforts to help end hostilities. [July 1st, 2020] (Source)

At present, Russia, Turkey, and Iran are at odds over the dumpster-fire that is Syria. However, they are now working together to end this division. Both Russia and Turkey are presently at odds over the future of Libya. At some point in the very near past, Russia, Turkey, and Iran have decided to align their interests in regards to Syria and Libya, and begin to solidify their stranglehold over the Middle East. In fact, I would venture to say that this alliance will solidify as we move into Trump’s fifth year in office. The reason I believe this will happen sooner, rather than later, is that all three are watching this Trump-led alliance fall in line with the Abraham Accord, and they will use this as the motivation to set their differences aside and work together. It is also very possible, that we could also see the formation of a new Syria very soon, with Bashar Assad stepping aside and Damascus being rebuilt (or at least getting the rubble out of the way). Damascus (as well as the rest of Syria) presents real, geopolitical interests to all three nations, and I expect that given the present prophetic winds, they will move in quickly. Might this new Axis of Resistance be the Gog-Magog coalition that Ezekiel prophesied about some 2,600 years ago?

Cyrus, Trump, and the Third Temple

In conclusion, let me sum up a few things about where I believe things are headed by way of bulletined summary. [Disclaimer, I could be wildly wrong-this is just my theory].

  1. I believe the Abraham Accord IS THE covenant that will be confirmed in Daniel 9:27, albeit, with modifications. The last Middle East ‘peace plan’ was in 1993, almost forty-years ago, and it was dead on arrival. 
  2. Prince Mohammed bin Salman is currently second in line to the Saudi throne. He is onboard with the Abraham Accord, but his father is not. This is in part, why I believe his father (the King) will die at some point in Trump’s second term. This is in part, why I believe Trump wins a second term, because the Democrats would all but dismantle this the second they took over. More importantly, Saudi’s entrance into the Accord will be the pièce de résistance that causes the domino effect for others to join
  3. As the Abraham Accord shores up its Sunni-Israeli alliance, the Axis of Resistance (Gog-Magog, et. al.) will also form along aligned interests merging in both Libya and Syria.
  4. The Rapture-event becomes the trigger for the Gog-Magog invasion of Israel. The Rapture will throw the US into disarray, which means, it will throw much of the Western-world (Europe, Australia, Japan, etc.) into economic disarray as well. The opportunity to attack Israel will be too enticing for the Gog-Magog coalition to resist because they know (or think) no one will come to their aid.
  5. The Sunni-Abraham Accord participants will lodge their protests at what is taking place, but will not lift a finger to help. They want no part of what is about to happen to tiny Israel.
  6. God supernaturally (or naturally for Him I suppose) destroys Damascus (Isaiah 17) and this coalition, so much so, that Israel becomes the new powerhouse in the Middle East. “Last man standing” syndrome.
  7. Not only will this divine victory expand their national borders by absorbing parts of Syria and Lebanon, but will also give them the confidence to build their Third Temple on the Temple Mount. I assume that the Al Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock are either severely damaged or destroyed during this event.
  8. At some point, either before or after Ezekiel 38, the Two Witnesses come on the scene and the Ark of the Covenant is found. These Two are hailed as heroes at first, but will quickly become a thorn in everyone’s side as Israel enters into this newly packaged Abraham Accord.
  9. After the Rapture and the Gog-Magog War, there will be a brief bout of global anarchy and chaos as power struggles ensue to fill the void of the USA, Russia, Turkey, and Iran. At this point, the United Nations decides to divide the world into ten regions to better manage the recent turn of events. One of the regions will be the Mediterranean Union.
  10. The new Abraham Accord will not just be Israeli/Sunni anymore, but will include a newly energized Mediterranean Union who is led by lawless one himself, the rider on the white horse, Mr. Antichrist.

All of these events will take place roughly over the course of 3-4 years. Many in Israel have equated Donald Trump as being synonymous with the Medo-Persian King Cyrus, for all of his seemingly impossible-yet achieved, political efforts. What I mean to say is Trump is instrumental to Bible prophecy at this point, for him to lose to someone like Biden-Harris. It begins with Donald Trump’s reelection in 2020, and then followed by the death of King Salman. After his death, his son Mohammed bin Salman brings Saudi Arabia into the Accord and subsequent domino effect of Sunni nations follow suit. This allows Israel to let her guard down, which is followed by the Rapture of the Church. The Rapture becomes the catalyst for the Gog-Magog War, which, after being destroyed, allows Israel to rebuild her third temple. At some point in this time frame, the Two Witnesses arrive as the world divides back into ten regions. One of those regions is the Mediterranean Union (see UfM). Islam as a major world religion is neutered (Shia-Turkic-Balkan) leaving only a weakened version of Sunni. Meanwhile, the European Union (EU) begins consolidating her power; one-man rises to the top of their hierarchy by election (see EU Super-President). He is the one who renegotiates the Abraham Accord with Israel (and the many) to be included in this new regional power structure.

Again, I could wrong on my understanding of how things shake out, therefore, I am not wedded to these thoughts, nor are they hills upon which I want to plant my battle flag. Ultimately, things will happen according to God’s will and timing, but it is fun to see what we think will happen in the months and years ahead. Nevertheless, preach the Gospel, and be ready in season and out. Keep praying for the peace of Jerusalem, and keep looking up, because our redemption draws near.

Maranatha!

Enemy in the Gates

Enemy in the Gates

By Pete Garcia

In the winter of 367, the Roman garrison on Hadrian’s Wall rebelled, and allowed Picts from Caledonia to enter Britannia. Simultaneously, Attacotti, the Scotti from Hibernia, and Saxons from Germania landed in what might have been coordinated and pre-arranged waves on the island’s mid-western and southeastern borders, respectively. Franks and Saxons also landed in northern Gaul. These warbands managed to overwhelm nearly all of the loyal Roman outposts and settlements. The entire western and northern areas of Britannia were overwhelmed, the cities sacked and the civilian Romano-British murdered, raped, or enslaved. (Barbarica ConspiratioWikipedia)

Nearly two-millennia ago, various groups of barbarians attacked the Roman provinces of Britannia and northern Gaul (modern day France), in a series of violent and seemingly pre-coordinated attacks. This was quite the feat considering the primitive communications of that era, as well as the vast distances, and conflicting interests of the groups involved. The attacks lasted for nearly a year, and did considerable damage to both the lands and people, as well as the Roman prestige of Pax Romana. While the Romans eventually regained military control over their provinces, these areas would never truly be the same again. Now, fast-forward 1,653 years to an age where the United States (modeled in part after Rome) is the primary super-power on the planet. Is it crazy or unreasonable to believe that in an era of

  • instantaneous global communications
  • limitless global financial resources
  • countless social media platforms
  • overwhelmingly hostile and propagandist media organizations
  • numerous Marxist/Islamic/Progressive-leaning academic centers

…that the existence of an unseen, shadow government operating just below the surface of our own elected government, is somehow an impossibility? Is it conspiratorial to believe that when global leaders speak of a global reset, what that they really mean is dethroning the United States as the world’s superpower?

Since January 2020, the world has been subjected to a massive, global faux pandemic designed to do two things. First, it was designed to drive the world into a state of crisis and panic. Secondly, it capitalized off the first part (crisis) to condition the world into shutting down the global economy as well as accepting a global solution. The intent was to crash the global economy, and force it to turn to a new, digital, global currency, which would effectively, end national sovereignty.

But God already knew what they were scheming.

In 2016, the United States elected one of the most seemingly, unelectable men to the highest office in the world. The phenomenon that was the Trump-2016 election was in reality, a miracle. Despite having pitted against him, the following-

  • Hostile media
  • Hostile foreign governments
  • Hostile academia
  • Hostile Hollywood
  • Hostile foreign press
  • Hostile outgoing administration
  • Hostile shadow government

Trump still won a shocking victory. In fact, his victory was so decisive, that Clinton conceded that night without even contesting it. They were reeling, so assured by all the above that they would defeat Trump in such a lopsided landslide that they had not even considered the possibility that she could lose.

But God had already picked His candidate.

Infuriated, the Democrats, their unelected shadow network of contractors and nameless/faceless government bureaucrats, the Deep State (shadow intelligence networks), and the outgoing Obama administration, made it their mission, to destroy the Trump presidency. They attacked him and everyone close to him, relentlessly. In fact, anyone who had even the slightest dirt on them (all of which was before he took office), were quickly picked off and targeted for destruction (R. Stone, M. Flynn, M. Manafort, etc.)  

However, Trump is a no-holds barred, take no prisoner, scorched earth, New Yorker who had been brought up through the ranks of the democrat elites. He knew how they fought. He knew how to fight back. Even better, he knew all their secrets. When they hit him, he hit them back twice as hard, with everything his bully pulpit would give him. He went on to success after success, building his foundation across a wide swath of everyday American’s, who were sick and tired of progressive liberals telling us how deplorable we were for not accepting their transgendered, homosexual, pedophiliac agendas.

Their attempts to unseat Trump failed not once, but three times. In their desperation, they unleashed their agenda, years ahead of schedule. The original intent by the shadow government was that one of the establishment Republican candidates would win the party nomination. He would go on to lose the general population election (lose with dignity), and that Hillary Clinton would continue the Obama Administration’s policy of grinding American’s down for another eight-years. Their intent was to use the years from 2020-2030 to get America to the point where we had no other choice but to subjugate ourselves to a global government.

But God decided to use His own timeline.

Much to everyone’s surprise, President Trump unleashed the power of the American economy like has not been seen since the 1980s. President Trump recognized Israel’s sovereignty over Jerusalem, which had been held in political/diplomatic hostage negotiations since the 1967 Six-Day War. President Trump began dismantling the shadow government. President Trump began renegotiating terrible political deals, which guaranteed nuclear weapons to Iran, unchecked trade imbalances with China, and one-sided military aid to nations who do not pay for their own share of their own security. In other words, Trump began derailing the globalist agenda the democrat and establishment republicans had been aggressively building since George. H. W. Bush.

However, as the fears of the coronavirus began to subside, the artificial state of crisis needed to be maintained. Almost as if in pre-coordinated manner, a bizarre, almost, staged racial incident involving the horrendous death of George Floyd unleashed a summer of racial strife, riots, vandalism, looting, and general lawlessness across the nation. However, not just our nation, but around the world people protested the unlawful killing of unarmed black men in America by a police officer. As I said then, I will say again. All of this was designed to pin on President Trump to diminish his rise in popularity with the black community.

As terrible as this crime against Floyd was, it pales in comparison to the rest of the deaths of blacks suffer on the national level. Here is where the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement comes into focus. Originally founded in 2013 after the Trayvon Martin shooting, BLM would gain attention through the nonstop publicity provided by the national mainstream media, albeit briefly. George Floyd’s death came on the heels of a 60-day nation-wide shutdown/quarantine. Not only that, but the nature/manner of Floyd’s death was so egregious that no amount of justification could provide any excusable recourse for the public to act upon.

The truth is, BLM is not concerned about black lives in general per se, but only black deaths in relation to a very specific manner of death-i.e., death by law enforcement. They ignore the legalized genocide of black babies through abortion. They ignore black on black violence ravaging every city in the nation. They ignore black cops who are killed trying to maintain law and order.

Death by law enforcement is a facade; BLM cleverly uses to disguise their true agenda. BLM (as well as ANTIFA) is an admitted pro-Marxist/Progressive organizations openly committed to the destruction of the United States using “systemic racism” as the means to justify the ends (e.g., deconstruction of law and order). Once law and order are undermined in an area, anarchy and revolution are sure to follow. BLM’s ultimate goal (per the own mission statement) is the destruction of the patriarchal, capitalist, Judeo-Christian, Constitutional Republic America was founded.

So given everything I have just laid out, we can understand where we are by using a little historical context. In other words, where we are now is not a new thing, it is actually, a combination of things. We are in that hybrid moment between the dismantlement of the Roman Republic (from the 1st-century B.C. -Julius to Augustus Caesar) and the proverbial barbarians-at the gate era, four centuries later. The Republic is crumbling from within, due to corruption and internal enemies, as well as the external threats who are funding our demise (e.g., Russia, China, globalist organizations). However, it is becoming obvious now to even our elected officials that all of these attacks/threats are hitting us in a way that no longer feels random or circumstantial.

Rep. Ken Buck, R-Colo., on Sunday called for a Department of Justice (DOJ) investigation into the funding of recent violent protests that have sprung up across the country, echoing statements made by Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., who was recently attacked while with his wife during the Republican National Convention. “The Justice Department needs to open an investigation into who is funding these violent riots,” Buck tweeted. “My question is: Who are these people?” he continued. “Who paid for their hotel rooms? Who flew them in? Law enforcement needs to look at the funding of violent criminal activity like this. And national Democrats need to confront it. It’s organized. It’s paid for. It’s violent. It’s not about Black lives or any lives; it’s about anarchy and destruction.” Fox News

Even media-propagandists like CNN and presidential candidate Joe Biden are now being forced to publicly condemn the violence, as painful as it is for them to do so.

Assessment

Satan is no dummy. Satan is never going to show the hand he is playing until after the damage is already done. I have made reference to this numerous times over the years, but if we want to see where all this is going, you have to look beyond the headlines.

If Satan is stirring up the masses, it is not just to sow the seeds of chaos, although he does enjoy doing that. Ultimately, he is looking for the reaction from the masses, who will inevitably demand, more control, and less freedom. This is where he wanted to take everyone in the first place, so he has used and is using violent and unhinged groups (e.g., Nazis, Islamists, Marxists, etc.) to get the world to the point, where they demand totalitarian control…and he will give it to them.

For example, the Third Reich was not created solely for killing the Jews, although, from Satan’s perspective, that was an added bonus. Satan stirred up Hitler and stirred up all those who would help create the German Third Reich, to ultimately cause the world to want to unite against things like the Third Reich. It is the Hegelian Dialectic at the strategic level.

Right after 9/11, the US Congress passed the Patriot Act, which was a revamped version of the 1995 Omnibus Counterterrorism Act. This was one of the most invasive forms of legislation ever created by the US government. Moreover, it passed both houses with bipartisan support in a matter of weeks. Now, Satan did not stir up the Muslim hijackers (or their financers) just because he believes their cause is just, or because he wanted to kill Americans. Rather, he used them to attack us, because he knew, we would invoke the legislation that would effectively create a surveillance state.

The surveillance state unleashed the power of the military-industrial-technological industries that soon create the massive intelligence /information /communication/space warfare we see the nations racing towards today. This is the high-level form of warfare that Satan has perfected over the millennia. Satan needs this technology expedited if he is to control the entire world through his man, The Antichrist.

On the ground level, there is another conspiracy afoot. We have enemies in our nation who want nothing more than to see our way of life destroyed. From the Revolutionary War loyalists are destruction not a new sentiment.

If we fast-forward to the aftermath of the Civil War, the Republicans were quick to want reconciliation with the defeated Southern Democrats. The Democrats, however, were still bitter over their humiliating defeat; especially in the Deep South were Union General Sherman oversaw the conquest of Atlanta and other major Confederate cities. Within months of the conclusion of the Civil War, the Confederates, now returning back to being simply “Democrats,” formed what could be considered the first shadow government system. They (the Ku Klux Klan) were the militia arm over their Democrat Party, and were determined to undermine the Republican’s efforts of desegregation and reconciliation against their “invisible empire.”

Founded in 1865, the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) extended into almost every southern state by 1870 and became a vehicle for white southern resistance to the Republican Party’s Reconstruction-era policies aimed at establishing political and economic equality for Black Americans. Its members waged an underground campaign of intimidation and violence directed at white and Black Republican leaders.

Though Congress passed legislation designed to curb Klan terrorism, the organization saw its primary goal–the reestablishment of white supremacy–fulfilled through Democratic victories in state legislatures across the South in the 1870s. After a period of decline, white Protestant nativist groups revived the Klan in the early 20th century, burning crosses and staging rallies, parades and marches denouncing immigrants, Catholics, Jews, African Americans and organized labor. The civil rights movement of the 1960s also saw a surge of Ku Klux Klan activity, including bombings of Black schools and churches and violence against Black and white activists in the South. (History)

The Democrats were also the home to numerous new socialist/progressives who began fleeing from an increasingly tumultuous Europe around the turn of the 20th-century. Of these groups, one in particular would find sanctuary in the United States, and we are now, witnessing the long-term effects of 100 years of their ideological poisoning.

The Frankfurt School, known more appropriately as Critical Theory, is a philosophical and sociological movement spread across many universities around the world. It was originally located at the Institute for Social Research (Institut für Sozialforschung), an attached institute at the Goethe University in Frankfurt, Germany. The Institute was founded in 1923 thanks to a donation by Felix Weil with the aim of developing Marxist studies in Germany. After 1933, the Nazis forced its closure, and the Institute was moved to the United States where it found hospitality at Columbia University in New York City. (Source)

Throughout the 1930s and 1940s, the Socialists/Progressives/Marxists were considered the left wing fringe, of an already systematically racist Democrat Party. They would spend the next few decades patiently building their foundation through the propagandist indoctrination of seminaries, universities, and eventually, public education. It was here that leftist ideological heavyweights began to radicalize in the 1960s with a culture war, capitalizing on the death of political leaders (JFK, MLK) and during a highly unpopular war in Vietnam. In one university, we see a more insidious form of warfare/terrorism being developed that was designed to break collapse the United States, as we know it.

First proposed in 1966 and named after Columbia University sociologists Richard Andrew Cloward and his wife Frances Fox Piven — both longtime members of the Democratic Socialists of America, where Piven today is an honorary chair — the “Cloward-Piven Strategy” seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse.

LBJ’s “Great Society,” in conjunction with a costly-overseas war in Southeast Asia, would achieve just that very goal. By the time President Nixon came into office (1969-74), the U.S. had to abandon the gold standard for a variety of reasons. From there, we went to a free-floating, debt-based, fiat currency. Had that been our sole financial transition, the US would have had collapsed economically decades ago.

However, ingeniously, the US also collaborated with OPEC (Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries) to set all oil prices in US Dollars. This meant, that nations, who needed to buy oil, had to have US currency to do so, which meant, every nation had to keep US greenbacks as their reserve currency. This preserved the status of the US Dollar from then (1971) until the early 2000s.

However, by 2007-08, there were growing signs that America’s financial house of cards was about to come down. Although the Subprime Mortgage Crisis cannot be laid solely at the feet of the democrat party, they did not help matters enforcing financially risky policies promoting socialist-light programs. Like LBJ’s “Great Society,” equal housing policies passed under Carter and Clinton would incentivize the practice of giving loans to those who could not afford them. That, along with out of control hedge fund markets, adjustable-rate mortgages, balloon payments, and increased debt would culminate in the perfect financial storm of 2008. I bring this up not simply to rehash recent history, but to show the first serious attempt by nations to become detached from the US Dollar.

Since the U.S. has long been the most stabilizing financial market force in the world, as well as almost every nation keeping US Dollars as a reserve currency, we have become the world’s greatest liability (should we collapse). Our collapse would absolutely guarantee the financial collapse of every other country in the world. This is what and why people like Cloward, Piven, George Soros, Obama, Clinton, and countless other globalists are working over-time to use the COVID-19 crisis, to achieve hasten our demise. The upcoming 51st annual meeting of the Web Economic Forum (WEF) is a perfect example of this.

‘The Great Reset’ will be the theme of this unique twin summit in January 2021…The WEF, which describes itself as an international organisation for public-private partnership, said ‘The Great Reset’ is a commitment to jointly and urgently build the foundations of economic and social systems for a more fair, sustainable and resilient future. “It requires a new social contract centred on human dignity, social justice and where societal progress does not fall behind …United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said, “The great reset is a welcome recognition that this human tragedy must be a wake-up call. We must build more equal, inclusive and sustainable economies and societies that are more resilient in the face of pandemics, climate change and the many other global changes we face.” Schwab said COVID-19 has accelerated the world’s transition into the age of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, while this global pandemic has also demonstrated again how interconnected everyone is… (Source) (Emphasis mine)

While all the flowery language sounds appealing on the surface, the reality of what these globalists are proposing is nothing more than equally shared misery. It is socialism. It is redistributing wealth from those who have, to those who have not (and create not). This recipe has been tried many, many times and it never works. However, their proposal here is that the reason it has not worked, because it has not been tried everywhere at the same time.

Their Great Reset agenda is already couched in the United Nation’s Agenda 2030. It ignores the recipe for actual economic success (see Trump’s economic recovery from the Obama-era recession), and dedicates their seemingly limitless resources to creating a world that erases borders, national sovereignty, individual rights, and liberty all in the name of equality. What it will create, is a techno-oligarchical conglomerate of an upper class, and everyone else.

Conclusion

As we approach the 19th anniversary of 9/11, we are reminded of the great evils that exist in our world. The 9/11 hijackers were not random men who all of sudden decided to kill innocent Americans. They were put together, trained, and financed to carry out this mission. Think about how much our world has changed since that one event 19 years ago.

I have spent numerous hours on the previous five articles (The Death of a Nation, Civil War and the Coming New World Order, American Pie, the Great Reset, and the Last Trump Rapture) explaining ad nausea, why the left is determined to create a singular new world order. Most of these people do not even understand why they are so determined to do this. The true enemy is not these people (as misguided as they are), the true enemy is Satan, and those demonic forces seeking still to overthrow God’s authority. These leftists and globalists are being manipulated like human puppets on marionette strings, dancing to the tune of older, darker, forces. From Revelation 13;  

  1. The rise of a regional (then global) government

Then I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name. Now the beast which I saw was like a leopard, his feet were like the feet of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority… (vs 1-3)

  1. The global government, led by Antichrist, gains global authority

It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation. (vs. 7)

  1. The Antichrist’s right hand man, the False Prophet, then directs all peoples to worship him

…Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon. And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. (vs. 11-12)

  1. These two men control ALL buying and selling (everything financial) using some new technology.

…He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. (vs. 16-17)

So not a matter of if, but when; this is where Scripture says the world will end up during the last seven-years of human history. However, in order for these things to come to pass, three things are needed.

  • The technology to implement the ascribed authoritative control
  • The societal degradation for people to blaspheme God and worship a man
  • The right crisis to cause people to embrace radical change

It used to be that the barbarians were over there. That is why we went over there to fight them so they did not come here. Then they were at the gates (9/11, border crisis, etc.). As we have come to find out, they have been among us all along.

Right now as you read this, someone is aggressively funding these efforts to overthrow our way of life, so that it causes the entire world to need a Great Reset. The world NEEDS the right crisis (collapsing the US) to make the Great ResetAgenda 2020Agenda 2030, the Green New Deal, etc. more than just words, but reality.

As hard as they have tried with the Coronavirus 2.0, the Wuhan Flu is not panning out to be the crisis they wanted it so desperately to become. This tells me two things: first, it will take something even worse to cause people going forward to actually react, and secondly, they (global and national governments) are learning from this present one, on what to do (and not do) during a “crisis.”

The reasons why globalists are funding their own demise (national and corporate suicide) through fake crises and social justice, is as antithetical as Hitler’s reasoning for opening a two-front war with the West and the Soviet Union. It does not make sense from a human perspective, which tells me there is another agenda afoot. A darker, spiritual one, which is operating on another level. This is probably why these decisions, appear nonsensical to us mere mortals.

At present, the US is the largest stabilizing force on the planet. The “Great Reset” only makes sense in a world where the US ceases to exist. Someone is organizing these efforts today to sow anarchy and lawlessness in America’s largest cities in an effort to hasten that reality. While we common-folk already know who that someone is (George Soros), he is not the only one. Furthermore, to speak his name causes us to automatically be labeled conspiracy theorists.

However, as Senator Paul rightfully noted, these rioters are receiving money from somewhere. Do the rioters not work? How do they pay their bills? How do they pay for food? Fuel? Hotel rooms? Why are corporations giving millions of dollars to anarchist and Marxist organizations who are then rioting, looting, and burning down their stores? These are all legitimate questions that should be asked. Although we know where this ultimately ends up, as long as we have breath in our lungs, we should never tolerate evil. And what we have going on in the streets, is organized evil. As Victor Davis Hanson rightfully noted, this coming election is not about Democrat versus Republican, nor even capitalism vs. socialism, but civilization vs. anarchy.

The light of the day is quickly dying, and night is coming soon. Continue to share the Good News of Jesus Christ to all those who God puts in our lives. Continue to pray for this nation and for Trump so that perhaps, one last revival can glean what is left of the harvest.

For those who do not know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, the ONLY escape from this coming global testing, is by placing your sincere faith and trust in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ for your sins today. If you miss the Rapture of the Church (the sudden disappearance of millions of people), the world will enter into a time that will be worse than any other in human history. It will be hell on earth. The only escape is by believing on the Lord Jesus Christ and becoming part of the bride of Christ today.

…that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.” For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him. For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Romans 10:9-13
