Global Significance :: By Daymond Duck

From raptureready.com

About 700 years before Christ, Hezekiah built a 2,000-foot-long tunnel through solid rock to secretly carry water from the Gihon Spring in Jerusalem to the Pool of Siloam (also called the Pool of Siloah) just outside the wall around ancient Jerusalem and at the base of the Temple Mount (II Kings 20:20).

Hezekiah built the tunnel and Pool of Siloam (a water reservoir like a swimming pool that was about 53 ft long, 18 ft wide, and 19 ft deep) to ensure that Jerusalem had water if the Assyrians surrounded Jerusalem and tried to capture the city.

The pool was located on a stone path (called the Pilgrimage Road) that led to the Southern Gate of the Temple (about 70 yards).

According to Josephus, about one million Jews would visit Jerusalem three times a year (spring, summer, and fall) to celebrate Jewish Feast Days (Lev. 23).

Many Jews would stop at the Pool of Siloam to take a required ritual bath before they went to the Temple.

Scholars believe Nebuchadnezzar destroyed the Pool of Siloam when Babylon invaded Israel (about 605-586 B.C.).

Nehemiah repaired it when he rebuilt the walls of Jerusalem (Neh. 3:15), Herod the Great enlarged it and built an Arcade around it during his reign, and Titus destroyed it again when the Romans destroyed Jerusalem in 70 A.D.

Before the Romans destroyed it, Jesus encountered the man born blind and healed him at the Pool of Siloam (Jn. 9:1-41).

Jesus declared that He is the Light of the World at the Pool of Siloam (Jn. 9:5).

Some (Got Questions) say Jesus was at the Pool of Siloam when he said, “if any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink” (Jn. 7:37-38).

After the Romans destroyed it, the Jews scattered, and it was not rediscovered until about 150 years ago.

Not much happened until 2004 when the water company accidentally broke a water pipe near the site.

This created an interest in developing the site, but a 14-year court battle over ownership of the site prevented any development from taking place.

The court battle has now been resolved, and on Dec. 27, 2022, the Israeli Antiquities Authority announced that work will begin in Jan. 2023 and be completed (and the site will be opened to the public) in about a year.

It is one of the most important discoveries ever, it has global significance, it is evidence of the accuracy of the Bible, it is evidence of a Jewish presence in the Promised Land (and in Jerusalem) for thousands of years, it is believed that millions of visitors will soon be going there every year, and those that visit a rebuilt Temple will need a place to take a ritual bath.

Restoring the Pool of Siloam could be a sign that a rebuilt Temple is not far behind.

Here are more things that could have global significance (could be signs of the approaching Tribulation Period).

One, concerning the division of Israel: in my article two weeks ago, I wrote that on Dec. 22, 2022, it was reported that the EU has confirmed that it is actively working with and for the PA to protect the rights of the Palestinians and to ensure that Judea and Samaria are part of a future Palestinian state.

On Jan. 4, 2023, it was reported that the powerless Jewish Sanhedrin warned the EU that their actions are in opposition to the Scriptures.

They warned the EU that the Scriptures say God gave the land of Israel to the Jews and He will punish the EU countries in the Valley of Judgment by God (the valley of Jehoshaphat at the Battle Armageddon) for dividing the Promised Land.

(More: On Jan. 4, 2023, it was reported that former member of the Israeli Knesset, rabbi Yehuda Glick, said, “We should condemn violence on the Temple Mount, and not condemn people who are visiting and people who are praying.”)

Two, concerning the entire world being against Israel during the Tribulation Period: on Jan. 5, 2023, the UN Security Council (UNSC) met to discuss and condemn Itamar Ben-Gvir’s 15-minute visit to the Temple Mt in the early morning of Jan. 3, 2023.

With all the wars, economic problems, famine, persecution of Christians, China invading Taiwan’s air space, Russia threatening to use nuclear missiles, Iran trying to build nuclear missiles, etc., going on in the world, the UNSC held a special meeting to condemn one Jewish official for going on the Temple Mount for 15 min. in the early morning when there was only a handful of people present.

For whatever it is worth, the U.S. is a powerful member of the UNSC and could have vetoed this UNSC condemnation, but the U.S. participated in it.

(More: Ben-Gvir is a conservative. He believes the Temple is the House of God on earth, and he wants all faiths to be allowed to worship on the Temple Mount. One well-known prophecy teacher believes Ben-Gvir’s visit to the Temple Mount will eventually lead to a partition and sharing of the Temple Mount. I have read several articles about Gen-Gvir’s visit, but I have not read anything about this leading to the partition and sharing of the Temple Mount. However, we know that the Temple will be rebuilt, and the Temple Mount will be shared by Jews and Gentiles (Rev. 11:1-2).

Also, it is common knowledge that some scholars believe the Temple can be rebuilt next to the Dome of the Rock and a wall or partition can be erected to separate the two. The Jews and the Temple would be on one side of the wall or partition, and the Muslims and the Dome of the Rock would be on the other side of the wall. The outer court of the Temple would have to be left out because it would go around the Dome of the Rock, the Arabs would have to go through it to get to the Dome of the Rock, and that would not work. If the outer court is left out, there will be room for the Temple and the Dome of the Rock. The Jews and Muslims could go up on the Temple Mount through different gates, and the wall would separate them, but they could both use the Temple Mount. This could be important and have prophetic and global significance. It could also be a sign that we are close to the arrival of the Two Witnesses.)

(More: The day after Israel’s Defense Minister Ben-Gvir visited the Temple Mount, a group called Return to the Mount said they hope Ben-Gvir will agree to let them carry out a sacrifice at a small altar in an open space on the Temple Mount this Passover, Apr. 5-6, 2023. Ben-Gvir has supported Return to the Mount in the past, but he must get the approval of Prime Min. Netanyahu before he authorizes an animal sacrifice on the Temple Mount this year. It will be interesting to see what Mr. Netanyahu does. Netanyahu’s heart is in God’s hands, and God’s Word will be fulfilled at the time of His choosing.)

Three, concerning the rise of the Antichrist and the coming one world religion: on Jan. 6, 2023, there was an incredible article on Koenig’s Eye View by William Koenig (former White House correspondent, author, and prophecy conference speaker) and Emily Jordan that has global significance.

Here are two important quotes from the article:

  • “If the Globalists have their way, God will be removed entirely from everyday life. The people of the planet will live under forced control by elite humans who think they are God. Our great nation will be usurped by a global tyrannical power. Political freedom will be obsolete, and Americans will no longer enjoy religious freedom under the God of the Bible, who allows all people to have free will and worship Him only if they so choose.”
  • “It is the Globalists who seek to conquer humankind and are themselves enemies of the United States. It is they who seek to destroy, they who are exclusionary, fascist, and sexist, and they who are committed entirely to anything and everything that makes a mockery of God and the world He has created, as outlined in the Bible.”

Here is a link to the entire article.

Four, concerning world government (global significance): on Jan. 10, 2023, The Expose posted an article that said a secret committee in the World Health Organization called the International Health Regulations Review Committee (IHRRC) was meeting from Jan. 9-13 to finalize proposed amendments to the International Health Regulations (IHRs).

The schedule calls:

  • For the IHRRC to submit their final proposed amendments to the WHO by Jan. 15, 2023
  • For the WHO to submit the proposed amendments to the 76th World Health Assembly the required 4 months before their meeting on May 21-30, 2023
  • For a simple majority of the 194 members (nations) to approve the amendments which will make them global law.

Here is just a sample of the proposed amendments (in my words):

  • Make WHO recommendations legally binding all over the world.
  • In addition to letting the WHO regulate things that endanger public health, empower the WHO to regulate things that could potentially endanger public health.
  • Empower the WHO to require medical exams, treatments, quarantines, and more.
  • Create a global system (digital or paper) to track tests, vaccinations, recovery, travel, etc.
  • Allow the WHO to release citizens’ personal data.
  • Empower the WHO to censor misinformation and disinformation (reports and opinions that disagree with them).

Since these are amendments to already existing IHR’s, if passed, it will not be necessary to submit them to world leaders (the U.S. Pres., U.S. Senate, etc.) for approval, and they will automatically become global law at the set date.

#StopTheAmendments: WHO’s power grab through a secretive committee to amend International Health Regulations

Five, concerning the relationship between globalists and corrupt individuals in the Roman Catholic Church: in his message on Epiphany (Jan. 6, 2023), conservative Archbishop Vigano said,

“Today, we see the simple and the leaders of distant nations recognizing the Saviour and conforming their private and public lives to Him while world leaders prefer to gather in Davos for their globalist agenda, and the prelates of the Bergoglian (Pope Francis, whose real name is Jorge Bergoglio) sect think only of hiding their scandals, propagating synodality (partnerships and agreements), and encouraging the most unmentionable vices. Both support each other and recognize each other’s legitimacy. Both see Jesus Christ as an uncomfortable obstacle to the pursuit of their plans for power and domination.”

Vigano quoted Jer. 5:26-31:

“For among my people there are wicked people who spy like lurking hunters, they set traps for men. Like a cage full of birds, so their houses are full of deceit; therefore, they become great and rich. They are fat and wicked, they go beyond the limits of evil; they do not defend justice, they do not care for the cause of the orphan, they do not do justice to the poor. Should I not punish these sins? Oracle of the Lord. Should I not take revenge on a people like this? Terrifying and horrible things take place in the land. The prophets foretell in the name of lies, and the priests rule at their behest; yet my people are pleased with this. What will you do when the end comes?”

Vigano answered his own question:

“What will you do when the end comes? the Lord asks. Will you create new emergencies, new crises, new pandemics, new wars with which to keep the people subjugated? Will you continue to exterminate innocent children, to render fathers and mothers sterile, to defraud the worker of his reward, to corrupt the young, to kill the sick and the elderly because they are considered useless for your own vile interests? Will you barricade yourselves in your fortresses, hoping to escape God’s wrath and your just chastisement? What will you do, servants of the Great Reset, when your masters have to flee into their lairs and hide in the bowels of the earth? Do you think you can sell yourself to a new owner as you have done so far? Poor, miserable, deluded ones. The terrible day of the Lord will come for everyone, and also for you: first with the particular Judgment, and then with the universal Judgment.”

Vigano is warning that a godless world government, godless world religion, and the Tribulation Period are on the horizon, and apart from Jesus, everyone on earth, great and small, will face the judgment of God.

Here is a link to Vigano’s entire message (posted on LifeSiteNews, Jan. 9, 2023):

Six, concerning a normalization agreement between Saudi Arabia and Israel based on a meeting between Saudis, Jews, and Americans in Nov. 2022: on Jan. 10, 2023, Joel Rosenberg, well-known author and editor-in-chief of All Israel News and All Arab News, said he believes a breakthrough is close at hand, and there is just one thing preventing a normalization agreement between Saudi Arabia and Israel.

That one thing is better relations between the U.S. and Saudi Arabia.

The Saudis are reluctant to make peace with Israel because they see Pres. Biden as an unreliable and unpredictable ally. (Biden called Saudi Arabia a pariah, called the Saudi crown prince a murderer, withdrew some U.S. defense missiles from Saudi Arabia, refuses to sell certain weapons to the Saudis, did not respond when Iran attacked Saudi Arabia with drones and cruise missiles, and more.)

According to Rosenberg, Saudi Arabia has signaled a readiness to sign a peace agreement with Israel, and the only thing that is stopping it is in the White House, not Israel or Gaza. (The obstacle is Biden, not Netanyahu or the PA.)

Seven, concerning deceit, corruption, and treason by the Deep State in their quest to weaken America and surrender U.S. sovereignty to a world government: on Jan. 10, 2023, Dave Hodges (The Common Sense Show) reported that some Democrats are telling the Republicans they cannot investigate the Deep State.

If at least some Deep State members are not immediately held accountable for what they are doing, they will not cease to control elections, weaken America, and submit the U.S. to a world government by 2030 or sooner.

The Republicans in the House must put the U.S. first, stand strong, and expect well-financed opposition from high places.

Be sure you are Rapture Ready.

Eight, concerning corruption in the FBI: on Jan. 10, 2023, it was reported that a confidential list of everyone that will be attending the invite-only WEF meeting next week has been leaked, and FBI Director Chris Wray is on the list.

These people are planning to take over the world, establish a godless world government, cause people to own nothing, and Chris Wray would not have an invitation if they did not consider him to be one of them.

This may explain why FBI agents spied on Trump, lied to courts, arrested patriots, refused to prosecute Hillary Clinton and Hunter Biden, etc.

Finally, are you Rapture Ready?

If you want to be rapture ready and go to heaven, you must be born again (John 3:3). God loves you, and if you have not done so, sincerely admit that you are a sinner; believe that Jesus is the virgin-born, sinless Son of God who died for the sins of the world, was buried, and raised from the dead; ask Him to forgive your sins, cleanse you, come into your heart and be your Saviour; then tell someone that you have done this.

Unprecedented :: By Daymond Duck

From raptureready.com

On Jan. 2, 2023, 24-year-old Buffalo Bills Safety, Damar Hamlin, routinely tackled an opposing player for the Cincinnati Bengals. Hamlin stood up and then fell backward on the turf.

Hamlin’s heart had stopped. CPR was administered for 9 minutes; his heartbeat resumed, and he was put in an ambulance and taken to the University of Cincinnati Medical center for evaluation and treatment.

Fans and players were shocked and praying, and in an unprecedented move, the NFL Monday night football game was indefinitely suspended and ultimately postponed.

The next day, it was reported that highly acclaimed internist, cardiologist, and epidemiologist Dr. Peter McCullough, who agreed that Damar Hamlin suffered a cardiac arrest, said, “If Hamlin indeed took one of the COVID-19 vaccines, then subclinical vaccine-induced myocarditis must be considered in the differential diagnosis.”

The fact that all the Buffalo Bills players had been vaccinated for Covid was admitted by someone who said he knows it for a fact but asked that his identity not be disclosed.

McCullough has often warned that Covid-19 gene therapy vaccinations are causing a dramatic increase in heart damage and the death of young people.

It is now an established fact that hundreds, perhaps 1-2 thousand, athletes have collapsed and died from heart problems, blood clots, etc. in the last 2-3 years.

Insurance companies are reporting an increase in death rates, and morticians are reporting massive blood clots in the deceased.

Some authorities even believe mRNA gene therapy vaccinations are part of a plan to reduce the population of the earth, and the situation is much worse than reported.

Many Bible prophecy teachers know that the end of the age will be characterized by an unprecedented convergence of the signs, unprecedented increase in knowledge and travel, unprecedented increase in deceit and pestilence, an unprecedented call for a global government, etc.

In her Winter 2023 Newsletter, Jan Markell (Olive Tree Ministries) said, “Pew Research just released a report that found among all U.S. adults, 39% say the ‘end times’ are now. That includes 47% of all Christians, which, in turn, included 55% of Protestants, 63% of evangelicals, 31% of mainline church members and 76% of historically black church memberships.”

Markell made it clear that the poll was about the Second Coming not the Rapture (which will take place a minimum of 7 years before the Second Coming).

If the poll is right (and I do not doubt it), the number of Christians that believe the end of the age is here is growing and unprecedented.

Everyone needs to be Rapture Ready (see how at the end of this article).

Here are more events that confirm it.

One, concerning depopulation and the decline of America: Catherine Austin Fitts, Publisher of the Solari Report and former Assistant U.S. Sec of Housing under Bush 41, made some interesting statements in an interview posted by Greg Hunter on Dec. 20, 2022.

Hunter reported that Fitts said (in my words for the sake of brevity and to get what I think are the most important points):

  • The U.S. is so fraudulent that it will self-destruct much sooner than later.
  • My question is how much of the money sent to Ukraine is coming back to the U.S.
  • There is a machine in control of a spending machine that is financed with our taxes and debt that is borrowed in our name. (My comment: Fitts did not say it, but I think she is talking about the so-called Deep State or Shadow Government.)
  • That machine is implementing a depopulation plan to balance the books, and changing the president will not change what the machine is doing.
  • If the machine does not fail you in 2023, it will fail you in 2024.
  • The Covid injections are a bioweapon that is part of the machine’s depopulation plan.

Here is a link to Greg Hunter’s post:

Two, on Dec. 31, 2022, New York became the sixth state (behind Washington, Oregon, Colorado, Vermont, and California) to legalize composting of deceased human bodies.

The environmentally conscious in those states can now treat the body of a loved one as a disposable commodity, have it composted, and used in a conservation project (spread in their garden, yard, under their trees, etc.).

Three, when asked about His Second Coming, Jesus said when the abomination of desolation (the Antichrist or a statue of the Antichrist), spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stands in Holy Place (in the rebuilt Temple at the middle of the Tribulation Period), the Jews in Judaea should flee into the mountains (a place prepared by God where they will be supernaturally protected, fed and watered for 3 ½ years; Matt. 24:15-16; Rev. 12:6).

Jesus did not name the mountains, but many prophecy teachers think He was talking about the ancient city of Petra in the mountains of Jordan.

On Dec. 28, 2022, it was reported that Petra was flooded by 3.1 inches of rain the day after Christmas; 1,700 tourists were evacuated, and it was closed for one day.

Video posted by Watchersnews.com shows flood water, a road, a vehicle, and people at Petra.

I seem to remember that there is now a road to Petra and utilities to accommodate the many visitors.

Put another way, if that is the place preparations have been made for lots of people, the Jews can get there, and if they need food and water, God can send it.

It will be neat if the food is manna from heaven.

Here is a link to the article and videos.

Four, concerning the Battle of Gog and Magog: an Israeli attack on Iran is not the Battle of Gog and Magog, but Iran said she will counterattack if Israel attacks her.

Moreover, Russia and Turkey have warned Israel not to attack Iran.

If Russia, Turkey, and others joined Iran in a counterattack, that would be the Battle of Gog and Magog and an undeniable sign that the world is in the latter years and latter days (Ezek. 38:8, 16).

On Dec. 28, 2022, it was reported that Israel has improved its preparations and readiness for an attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities.

On Dec. 29, 2022, Benjamin Netanyahu was sworn in as the new Prime Min. of Israel.

Netanyahu has appointed a man to lead Israel’s National Security Council that has repeatedly threatened to destroy Iran’s nuclear facilities if the U.S. does not secure a deal to stop Iran’s development of nuclear weapons.

As of Sept. 2022, U.S. Pres. Biden has given up on getting Iran to stop.

(Note: The UN, the U.S., the EU, the WEF, the PA, and others are already expressing their disapproval of Netanyahu’s new government and trying to move it to the left. The Bible tells us Israel will be hated at the end of the age, and, at some point, Bible prophecy says war will break out, God will use it to fulfill His Word, and Israel cannot be defeated.)

Five, concerning the days of Lot and immorality: the Knesset in Netanyahu’s government elected an openly gay man to be the Speaker of the Knesset (the first openly gay person to hold that position in Israel).

Six, concerning the days of Lot and immorality: on Dec. 31, 2022, Elon Musk’s Twitter reinstated The Christian Post after 9 months of censorship for telling the truth (calling Pres. Biden’s Sec. of Health, Rachel Levine, a man).

Levine is the father of two boys, a biological male who divorced his wife, let his hair grow long, started wearing a bra and identifying as a woman, but the former Twitter owners said the Post committed “hateful conduct” by calling him a man.

After Musk reinstated The Christian Post, its editors said they are a Christian publication, their primary responsibility is to God, and they will continue to report biblical truth to the best of their abilities.

Seven, concerning global warming and electric vehicles: on Dec. 28, 2022, it was reported that New York City has 2,100 trucks that run on diesel fuel and can be fitted with plows in the winter and used to clear snow.

The city also has 6,000 garbage trucks that run on gas that they would like to convert to electric vehicles, equip them with plows, and use for clearing snow.

They recently learned that trucks that are converted to electricity are not powerful enough, they do not do an acceptable job, they only run about 4 hours, and the equipment and space to charge thousands of vehicles every 4 hours would be extremely expensive.

Some of their officials have concluded that it may be feasible to convert the trucks in the future, but it is not feasible now.

Eight, concerning the days of Noah and wickedness: on Dec. 29, 2022, it was reported that looting and stealing from stores in San Francisco, Cal. is costing businesses almost $100 billion per year, and government officials are doing nothing to stop it.

Nine, concerning Netanyahu’s new government and the Temple Mount: on Jan. 3, 2023, with the approval of Prime Min. Netanyahu, his new National Security Minister became the first sitting minister to ascend the Temple Mount in 5 years.

During his visit, he said, “The Temple Mount is open for everyone, also Jews.”

The Palestinian Authority (PA) condemned the visit, but many Jews praised it.

(More: condemnation by world leaders of the visit and Netanyahu’s government was fast and furious, but as of this writing, there has been no violence.)

Ten, concerning world government: the World Economic Forum (WEF) will begin a series of meetings on Jan. 18, 2023, to focus on countering misinformation (an undefined topic that means silencing anyone that disagrees with their agenda, criticizing Covid-19 vaccinations, criticizing their antichrist globalist government and religion, etc.).

(Note: It is time to face the fact that world leaders are deliberately transitioning (taking incremental steps) the nations toward a world government (New World Order; The Great Reset) by 2030 or sooner, and pre-Trib Rapture teachers believe the Rapture is before the Tribulation Period. Those that are left behind will regret it.)

Finally, are you Rapture Ready?

If you want to be rapture ready and go to heaven, you must be born again (John 3:3). God loves you, and if you have not done so, sincerely admit that you are a sinner; believe that Jesus is the virgin-born, sinless Son of God who died for the sins of the world, was buried, and raised from the dead; ask Him to forgive your sins, cleanse you, come into your heart and be your Saviour; then tell someone that you have done this.

In Christ Alone :: By Daymond Duck

This message is shorter than usual.

I have been blessed to have several members of my family visiting for Christmas.

Some live several hundred miles away, and I do not see them very often.

I tried to spend most of my time with them.

Concerning the New Year, the great Hal Lindsey wrote, “Christians can look forward to 2023 with renewed hope, but not because the world is getting better. It is not. More than ever before, it should be obvious that our hope is not in the mechanisms and programs of this world. It is in Christ alone.”

One, concerning the division of Israel: on Dec. 21, 2022, it was reported that a group of former Israeli military, security, and police officers warned that the EU is clandestinely collaborating with the Palestinian Authority (PA) to take over Judea and Samaria and merge it with other areas to make it part of a future Palestinian state.

The group warned that most of Judea and Samaria is strategic territory that is critical to the defense of Israel, and turning it over to the PA would threaten the security of Israel.

(Note: There will be Jews in Judea at the middle of the Tribulation Period. The Antichrist will defile the Temple at that time, and Jesus said, “Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains” (Matt. 24:16).

(My opinion: Satan wants to give Judea to the PA who would drive the Jews out if they could. That would prevent the fulfillment of prophecy, but God’s Word must be fulfilled.)

Two, concerning the division of Israel: on Dec. 22, 2022, it was reported that the EU has confirmed that it is actively working with and for the PA to protect the rights of the Palestinians and to ensure that Judea and Samaria are part of a future Palestinian state.

Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said Israel has clearly notified all EU officials at every level of service in Israel that what the EU is doing is unacceptable.

(Note: Jewish annexation of most or all of Judea and Samaria will lead to an increase in violence and war.)

Three, concerning the Israeli government, dividing the land of Israel, Judea, and Samaria: on Dec. 22, 2022, Benjamin Netanyahu officially informed Israeli Pres. Herzog that he has put together a new government with 64 partners.

It will be the most religious government since Israel became a nation.

This is because Netanyahu agreed to make Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria part of the nation of Israel (called the Sovereignty Plan) to get the religious parties to join his government.

Netanyahu took office on Dec. 29, 2022, and world leaders (the EU, the PA, Iran, and others) are already denouncing his government.

(Note: This is why the Jews in Judea need to flee into the wilderness when the Antichrist defiles the Temple. The Antichrist will be from the EU, and he will try to kill the Jews in Judea. God will supernaturally protect those that flee, and they will be part of the terminal generation that will not pass away until everything is fulfilled. They will also be among the people with natural bodies that will repopulate the earth during the Millennium.)

Four, concerning the Israeli government, dividing the land of Israel, Judea and Samaria: on Dec. 24, 2022, it was reported that Israel, Saudi Arabia, and the U.S. are talking, and Netanyahu said he would suspend his annexation policies in Judea and Samaria for a normalization agreement with Saudi Arabia.

Netanyahu said, “If we have peace with Saudi Arabia, we are effectively going to bring an end to the Arab-Israeli conflict.”

Five, concerning the Israeli government, dividing the land of Israel, Judea: on Dec. 24, 2022, it was reported that Netanyahu reached an agreement with the religious parties that want him to annex Judea and Samaria, and they will not obstruct his efforts to reach a normalization agreement with Saudi Arabia.

It is important to remember that on Dec. 8, 2022, Danny Danon, Israel’s former ambassador to the UN, said: “I expect we’ll see an agreement between Israel and Saudi Arabia this year (in 2023).”

He based this upon information that he could not reveal.

(My opinion: It is obvious that things are changing almost daily, and we should know that at some point, there will be an agreement. After that, the Antichrist will confirm it, but Christians will not be here, and then the Temple will be rebuilt. Reports such as Netanyahu seeking a peace agreement with Saudi Arabia could indicate that the world is being prepared for the Tribulation Period. People need to make their salvation sure.)

Six, concerning violence: Netanyahu’s agreement with the religious parties includes the passage of a law to execute terrorists that harm the nation of Israel and its people.

The execution of Muslim terrorists will cause Muslim radicals and many world leaders to harm Israel any way they can.

Seven, concerning rain returning to Israel and the desert blooming at the end of the age: it has been a very dry year in Israel, but at least some meteorologists are saying that heavy rain is on the way.

Having said that, the Mediterranean Sea is on Israel’s west; the Red Sea is on Israel’s south; Israel has built desalination plants at Ashkelon (2005), Palmachim (2007), Hadera (2009), Sorek (2013), Ashkelon (2015), and two more are on the way (for a total of 7), so Israel has not hurt for water like other nations have in the Middle East.

Eight, concerning the Battle of Gog and Magog: God said Russia and her allies (Iran, etc.) will cover the land of Israel like a cloud (Ezek. 38:9).

Earlier this year (spring of 2022), Iran sent pilots to Russia to learn how to fly Russian Su-35 fighter jets.

In Sept. 2022, Israel said Iran’s purchase of the Su-35 is on the agenda.

On Dec. 9, 2022, it was reported that Iran is supplying drones to Russia for her war with Ukraine, and Russia has increased her supply of military equipment to Iran.

(My opinion: This growing partnership between Russia and Iran may indicate that the Battle of Gog and Magog is approaching, but no weapon formed against Israel will prosper.)

Nine, at the end of the age, God will cause Jews to return to Israel from all over the world.

On Dec. 23, 2022, it was reported that about 70,000 Jews returned to Israel from 95 nations in the first 11 months of 2022 (Jan. 1-Dec. 1, 2022).

Ten, concerning natural disasters: according to AccuWeather, on Dec. 21, 2022, the temperature in Cheyenne, Wyoming dropped 40 degrees in 30 minutes.

This was a national record.

Eleven, concerning natural disasters: on Dec. 23, 2022 (2 days before Christmas), Buffalo, NY received 1.98 in. of rain before it started snowing; AccuWeather predicted 4-6 feet of snow with wind gusts approaching 74 mph or greater by Christmas, visibility was zero for 16 hours, drifts were enormous, and there were many places that first responders could not get to.

This is record-breaking.

(Note: On Dec. 25, 2022, it was reported that the storm had killed at least 34 people in the U.S., millions of people were without natural gas and electricity, and almost 2 million travelers were stranded.)

(More: On Dec. 19, 2022, a town in Japan got 43.3 inches of snow in 24 hours.)

Twelve, the end of the age will be like the days of Noah when the wickedness of man was great.

On Dec. 25, 2022, it was reported that 135 businesses and property owners in the Tenderloin district of San Francisco have notified the mayor that they want a full and complete refund of all sales and property taxes because the city has abandoned its responsibility to keep the city safe.

Thirteen, concerning corruption in the FBI and the coverup of the Hunter Biden scandal: Special Counsel John Durham is in the final stages of preparing a report.

On Dec. 26, 2022, it was reported that a former Obama spokesperson, Matthew Miller, came out against releasing the entire report because it may unfairly tarnish some members of the FBI.

From the article, I got the impression that the report will go Merrick Garland and the DOJ where findings that the Biden administration does not want the public to know can be redacted.

Put another way, it looks like the Durham investigation is going to be turned into a waste of time and taxpayer money.

Fourteen, concerning corruption in the FBI: on Dec. 27, 2022, it was reported that released Twitter files clearly confirm that the FBI and others were actively aiding and abetting executives at Twitter during and since the 2020 election.

(Note: A different report, dated Dec. 26, 2022, notes that Klaus Schwab’s World Economic Forum (WEF) is now recommending that interested people keep up with WEF activities on Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, YouTube, TikTok, WeChat, and Weibo. It looks like Twitter is now being censored by people that are stealing elections to gain control of governments and establish a world government.)

Fifteen, concerning wickedness, deceit, and population reduction: on Dec. 27, 2022, it was reported that since the Covid vaccination campaign began 2 years ago, 1,011 athletes that took the jab have suddenly died, and many officials and commentators believe the number is much higher than reported.

(Special note: I wish everyone a blessed, happy, and prosperous New Year. I also wish that everyone that has not truly accepted Jesus as their Saviour will do so immediately, but know that salvation is in Christ alone.)

Finally, are you Rapture Ready?

If you want to be rapture ready and go to heaven, you must be born again (John 3:3). God loves you, and if you have not done so, sincerely admit that you are a sinner; believe that Jesus is the virgin-born, sinless Son of God who died for the sins of the world, was buried, and raised from the dead; ask Him to forgive your sins, cleanse you, come into your heart and be your Saviour; then tell someone that you have done this.

It Is Coming :: By Daymond Duck

From raptureready.com

On Dec. 17, 2022, it was reported that Rep. David Cicilline, a Democrat from Rhode Island, has introduced legislation to permanently bar former Pres. Trump from running for president again, and 40 Democrats have signed on.

Cicilline is accusing Trump of orchestrating an insurrection on Jan. 6, 2021.

At the time of this writing, it is debatable as to whether Cicilline’s legislation will get voted on before the new Congress takes office in 2023, but some conservatives have said from the beginning that the main purpose of the Jan. 6 fake show-trial was to stop Trump from being elected again.

Some, including this writer, have said there is no telling what the U.S. shadow government will do to prevent making America great again (MAGA) because they want to surrender the sovereignty of the U.S. to the New World Order (coming world government).

It was easy to see this coming, and while there is some doubt about Cicilline’s legislation getting voted on, there is no doubt in the minds of some Bible prophecy teachers that the New World Order and the Reign of Antichrist are coming.

That is what “Build Back Better” and “The Great Reset” are all about (making everyone on earth subject to a godless world government).

Trump is seen as an impediment that must be permanently removed.

Here are more signs that indicate that it is coming.

One, concerning a peace treaty in the Middle East: on Dec. 14, 2022, potential Israeli Prime Min. Netanyahu repeated his belief that an Abraham Accords normalization agreement with Saudi Arabia would lead to an agreement with all the Arab nations and eventually to peace with the Palestinians.

Netanyahu said, “I intend to pursue it.”

Two, concerning a peace treaty in the Middle East: on Dec. 14, 2022, the European Union (EU) Parliament said, “The next Israeli government should make a clear commitment in favor of the Two-State Solution” (commit to the division of Israel, something that will trigger the Battle of Armageddon; Joel 3:2).

The resolution called for a European (home of the Antichrist who will confirm a peace treaty; Dan. 9:26) to lead the peace process, and it says, “Two sovereign democratic states living side by side in peace and guaranteed security (peace and safety; I Thess. 5:3), with Jerusalem as the capital of both states and in full respect of internal law.”

Three, concerning the global energy crisis: on Dec. 16, 2022, the International Energy Agency (IEA) reported that coal demand has hit an all-time high.

With winter and blackouts looming, the deliberate shortage of natural gas has caused the demand for coal to soar.

One would think climate change advocates would be upset about people freezing to death, but they seem more upset by the increased use of coal.

Four, concerning the U.S. economy and deceit: on Dec. 13, 2022, the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia said the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics overstated the March through June 2022 employment numbers by more than one million people.

Five, with the help of 39 Republicans in the House and 12 Republicans in the Senate, Pres. Biden got his so-called “Respect for Marriage” passed. (It is really a bill to legalize immorality or gay marriage).

Texas Rep. Chip Roy asked for an amendment to prevent the government from discriminating against those that believe in traditional (Biblical) marriage, but that was blocked. (So immorality is legal, and criticizing it might bring the government down on you. What is happening to freedom of speech?)

Six, concerning natural disasters: during the Tribulation Period, a star will fall from heaven burning as a lamp; it will pollute a third part of the rivers and streams on earth, and many that drink them will die (the third trumpet judgment; Rev. 8:10-11).

In 2022, there has been at least a dozen verifiable reports of very bright fireballs in the sky around the world (Spain, China, U.S., UK, Brazil, Portugal, India, etc.).

On Dec. 18, 2022, a very bright fireball exploded over China that caused a loud boom, damaged a cement road, broke streetlights, shook and broke windows, etc.

Citizens in the area gathered several suspected fragments from the fireball for the Chinese government, and one suspected fragment was more than 3 inches long and weighed about 7 pounds.

  • On Dec. 17, 2022, a large freak wave struck a beach in South Africa. 3 people were killed, and 17 others were injured.
  • The National Weather Service is predicting that a prolonged much-below-normal, perhaps record-breaking and life-threatening, arctic front will cover a large portion of the U.S. just before Christmas, and officials are warning that power outages are a real possibility.
  • On Dec. 20, 2022, a 6.4 earthquake shook northern California, causing power outages, gas leaks, and widespread damage of homes. At least two people were killed, and at least 11 were injured.

Seven, concerning wars and rumors of wars: on Dec. 15, 2022, it was reported that Russia has loaded its second nuclear missile into a silo (the missile is reportedly capable of carrying 15 nuclear warheads) and threatened to fire it on London in the UK if Ukraine attacks Russian territory.

On Dec. 19, 2022, it was reported that Henry Kissinger said a nuclear war caused by Ukraine is imminent.

(My opinion: I do not believe Russia will use nuclear weapons against the UK, U.S., or any NATO nation. That would start a nuclear war that would do incredible damage to everyone, including Russia. According to the Bible, Russia’s military will be destroyed on the mountains of Israel, not in Ukraine or Russia.)

Eight, concerning pestilences and the globalist desire to reduce the population of the earth: every day, there are reports of increased deaths around the world that are caused by mRNA Covid-19 jabs.

Autopsies are finding inflammation of the heart arteries, blood clots that blocked and obstructed arteries, etc., to a greater degree in people that have been jabbed than in people that have not been jabbed.

On Dec. 17, 2022, it was reported that a Rasmussen Poll of 1,000 U.S. citizens on Nov. 30 and Dec. 1, 2022, found that 56% said they had no side effects, 34% said they had minor side effects, 7% said they had major side effects, and 4% said they were not sure if they had any side effects from taking the jab. (The numbers were rounded off and may explain why the total comes up to over 100%.)

Other reports have found similar results, and the fact that 7% of the U.S. citizens that were surveyed reported major side effects is incredibly high.

(Note: Some officials believe the situation is worse than reported because Rasmussen could not poll deceased citizens.)

Nine, concerning the distress of nations: on Dec. 19, 2022, Israel’s Intelligence Ministry issued an assessment of world events that will be coming over the next 10 years.

The Jerusalem Post obtained a copy of the report and said, “The world is at a transition point analogous to being on the verge of a cliff, after which a series of crises striking simultaneously will reorder the planet’s geopolitics, the place of technology, the economic order and a variety of other disciplines from health to energy.”

(My opinion: I have been writing that globalists are transitioning the world into a world government by 2030 or sooner, and they are deliberately creating crises, food shortages, energy shortages, economic problems, etc., and the technology to bring it about. Some prophecy teachers also believe they will soon propose solutions that will give them more power and eventually enslave everyone on earth. This Israeli intelligence report confirms the opinion that a transition is taking place.)

Ten, concerning the division of Israel: on Dec. 19, 2022, it was reported that the new government of Israel will be installed in the next 2-3 days.

World leaders (including the UN, EU, and the Biden administration) are going out of their way to warn the new conservative Israeli government not to annex settlements or change the status quo on the Temple Mount, and more.

They want to divide Israel and Jerusalem, and they are pressuring Israel to agree to it.

The Bible clearly teaches that dividing Israel and Jerusalem will trigger the Battle of Armageddon (Joel 3:2).

Eleven, concerning corruption and election fraud: on Dec. 20, 2022, it was reported that the FBI paid twitter $3.4 million to censor stories the government did not like.

The FBI was illegally influencing the election by censoring and lying about posts such as Hunter Biden’s Laptop from Hell.

They had Biden’s laptop and knew the information was true but made up the story and lied about it being Russian disinformation.

The shadow government was using Twitter to determine who will hold office in the U.S. because world government is a goal of the U.S.

America is being weakened and betrayed from within.

(Note: They also lied about Pres. Trump and the Russian collusion story. I seem to remember that that lie cost the American taxpayers about $40 million. Congress should have already done something about it, but the Democrats have controlled all three branches of government, and some of them were colluding with the FBI. Trump got elected to “drain the swamp,” but he did not know how polluted it was, and he could not get it done.)

Twelve, concerning famine and food shortages: this week, a reader sent me a link to a video of Glenn Beck interviewing Carol Roth (author, TV pundit, radio host, and more).

Roth said the Netherlands is the second largest food producer in the world (second only to the U.S.).

Roth reminded viewers that those that control the food can control the people.

The government is deliberately putting farmers and ranchers out of business in the Netherlands, and Beck said he thinks this is “the biggest threat to all of us because it will lead to global starvation.”

Beck added that this is coming to the U.S. and Canada and that the WEF said, “We will redesign how we produce and consume food from the seed to the fork.”

Therefore, the government of Netherlands is cutting the use of fertilizer, limiting how many cows people can own, buying thousands of acres of farmland and taking it out of production, etc.

Deliberate food control, mass starvation, and population control is coming.

Canada is already reducing the amount of fertilizer farmers can use.

The U.S. is buying land out west, paying farmers to not farmland, and stopping farmers from grazing cattle on some federal land.

Here is a link to the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OpuEfvzDZb8

Thirteen, concerning world government: on Dec. 20, 2022, The New American posted an excellent article by William F. Jasper about the 2022 UN Biodiversity Conference in Montreal, Canada, on Dec. 7-19, 2022.

It was a regular meeting of climate change extremists who are determined to save Mother Earth (the planet) from natural disasters (rising sea levels, floods, droughts, wildfires, etc.) supposedly created by man’s pollution and excessive consumption.

Jasper reported that they agreed to four goals called the 30-by-30 (or 30X30) Initiative:

  • By 2030, they will protect (forbid people to use) 30% of the world’s land, water, and marine areas.
  • By 2030, they will raise at least (perhaps more) $200 billion per year to fund biodiversity causes.
  • By 2030, they will reduce subsidies by at least (perhaps more) $500 billion to entities that are harming nature.
  • By 2030, developed countries will give developing countries at least (perhaps more) $30 billion per year for biodiversity causes.

Jasper points out that the real objective is power for them to reset (transform) the world (and everyone on it) according to their agenda, morals, etc. (the agenda, morals, etc., of “Transforming our World: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development”).

He reminded readers that Pres. Biden signed an Executive Order on Jan. 27, 2021, that commits the U.S. to conserve (not allow mining, farming, drilling for oil, etc.) at least 30% (perhaps more) of U.S. lands and waters by 2030.

Here is a link to Jasper’s extremely important report.
