WHY? :: by Daymond Duck

From raptureready.com

On Aug. 2, 2023, Anne Graham Lotz (daughter of Billy Graham) wrote: “If I believe what He (Jesus) said about sin, salvation, forgiveness, the love of God the Father, eternal life, His own identity, and all the other big truths (John 3:16–175:17–2111:25–26.), then it stands to reason that what He said about His return is equally true. Jesus is coming! The glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, is imminent! (Titus 2:13).Ann’s statement is right on target, but it triggers questions in my mind:

  • If Christians believe the Bible is the Word of God, why do so many doubt or ignore what it says about the return of Jesus?
  • If Jesus is coming back to make this world better (establish peace, justice, and righteousness on earth), why aren’t more Christians excited about it?
  • If the return of Jesus is our blessed hope, why are so many Christians living without hope today?
  • If the Rapture of the Church is near, why aren’t more Christians talking about the dangers of being left behind, taking the Mark of the Beast, etc.?

I suppose there are many reasons why (unbelief; complicated subject; scary, etc.), but make no mistake about it, Jesus is coming back ready or not, and the number of people that think we are getting close is rapidly growing.

Anyway, here are some recent current events that seem to indicate that we are getting close to the return of Jesus for His church (Rapture).

One, concerning war between Israel and Hezbollah in Lebanon: on Aug. 1, 2023, Israeli Prime Min. Netanyahu met with Israeli military and security officials to discuss Hezbollah’s actions on Israel’s northern border with Lebanon.

They concluded that the threat of war is the greatest it has been in the last 17 years (since the end of the Second Lebanon War in 2006).

Southern Lebanon is part of the Land that God said Israel will get at the end of the age.

Put another way: Hezbollah is occupying part of the Promised Land and will lose it if it starts a third war with Israel.

(More: On Aug. 3, 2023, Israel notified the UN Security Council that the situation on its border with Lebanon is a powder keg. This writer is not aware of the UN doing anything to calm the situation.)

(More: On Aug. 8, 2023, Israel’s Defense Min. warned Hezbollah and Lebanon that Israel is prepared to strike all of Hezbollah’s assets and return Lebanon to the stone age if Israel is attacked.)

(More: On Aug. 8, 2023, it was reported that Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and other nations are warning their citizens to leave Lebanon. It was also reported that Israel is trying to prepare for casualties and damage in the event that they are struck by thousands of rockets in the next few days.)

Two, concerning the coming global famine: on Aug. 2, 2023, Ukraine’s Pres. Zelensky accused Russia of trying to create a global catastrophe by disrupting the global food supply and collapsing global food markets.

Zelensky was referring to the fact that Russia is preventing the shipment of Ukrainian food exports to other nations, causing the price of food to rise and increasing hunger and famine in Africa.

Three, concerning the 2024 elections: on Aug. 3, 2023, it was reported that a man known for shady dealings, George Soros, has given more than $750,000 and created a political action committee (PAC) to convert the state of Texas from Republican to Democrat.

Large contributions like this one are one reason why many politicians do the bidding of globalists instead of the voters.

The politicians have been bought and paid for.

Four, concerning wickedness (as in the days of Noah): on Aug. 4, 2023, it was reported that crime in Washington D.C. has gotten so bad that the Mexican government (home of the drug cartels) is warning its citizens to avoid going there.

Five, concerning the coming economic collapse: on Aug. 4, 2023, Michael Hartnett, a strategist at the Bank of America (based on Congressional Budget Office data), predicted that America’s national debt will rise $5.2 billion a day every day for the next ten years.

(More: On Aug. 7, 2023, Moody’s cut the ratings of ten small to mid-size banks in the U.S. and said it may soon have to downgrade some of America’s largest banks.)

(More: On Aug. 8, 2023, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York reported that in the second quarter of 2023, credit card debt in the U.S. reached $1.03 trillion.)

(More: On Aug. 8, 2023, at the time this is being written, all the oil being used in the world is being sold in U.S. dollars. On Aug. 22, 2023, the BRICS nations plan to announce that 60% of the oil being used in the world will be sold in their new gold-backed currency. Many experts say this will eventually cause the value of the dollar to drop significantly.)

Six, concerning an Israeli normalization agreement with Saudi Arabia that would be a big step toward peace: on Aug. 7, 2023, Israeli Prime Min. Netanyahu said he believes the two nations could achieve some form of normalization in the coming months.

Time will tell.

Seven, concerning the ashes of a red heifer and a rebuilt Temple: on Aug. 8, 2023, it was reported that the Jews are only months away from having a red heifer that is old enough to sacrifice.

It has also been reported that the Israeli government has discretely shifted some funds to prepare for purification services and possibly the construction of a third Temple.

According to the report, very little is being said about this because it is an explosive issue.

Eight, concerning the coming cashless society and tracking all buying and selling: the opponent of Chancellor Karl Nehammer in Austria’s upcoming election accused Nehammer of planning to ban cash and track Austria’s citizens.

Nehammer has responded by announcing plans to push a law that guarantees Austrian citizens the right to make purchases with cash.

FYI: God does not send anyone to Hell (all of us are born with a sin nature and destined to go to Hell because we sin), but God has provided a way (Jesus) for everyone to go to Heaven (and He is the only way to get there; John 14:6).

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.duck_daymond@yahoo.com

Before It Is Too Late :: By Daymond Duck

From raptureready.com

On July 24, 2023, it was reported that Marshall, Minn. Pastor John Tramm wrote a letter to Minn. Gov. Tim Walz that was signed by 20 Minn. Pastors and hand-delivered to Gov. Walz by Pastor Tramm and Pastor Eric Anderson.The letter urged Gov. Walz to “Repent, change your ways before it is too late.”It was prompted by three bills that Gov. Walz signed:

  • One that promotes part of the LGBTQ agenda.
  • One that could threaten the freedom of speech of professionals that want to warn patients and children about the potential dangers of “conversion therapy.”
  • One that grants unrestricted access to abortion.

Tramm said he is praying for Gov. Walz, and he urged other pastors and Christians to stand up and speak out.Is it possible for people to run out of time to repent and be saved?It is a debatable subject.We know that a multitude too great to be counted will hear the gospel, repent, and be saved during the Tribulation Period, but:

  • When God shut the door on Noah’s Ark, it was too late for multitudes.
  • When the hand wrote on the wall, it was too late for King Belshazzar and thousands of Babylonians.
  • When a certain rich man decided to build bigger barns to store his bountiful crop, it was too late for him to do it.

Not everyone agrees, but I believe that those that have heard the gospel but refused to believe it, accept Jesus, and repent of their sins, are running out of time to get saved before they are struck with strong delusion (like the blinding of the Jews or the hardening of Pharoah’s heart).The Bible clearly teaches that people need to be ready to go on a moment’s notice because:

  • The Rapture could happen at any moment without warning (called the doctrine of imminence).
  • The Rapture will happen in the twinkling of an eye.
  • The Rapture will come upon the earth like a snare.
  • People will perish for not receiving the love of the truth, that they might be saved; that God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie; and that all of them might be damned who believed not the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

Anyway, not all of God’s people agree that someone can run out of time to repent and be saved, but all of them agree that God is a God of grace, and He will gloriously save those that truly repent and accept Jesus before the Rapture.

So, make your salvation sure now, reach your loved ones now, etc., and you won’t have to be concerned about it being too late later.

Here are some recent events that may relate to the end of the age Bible prophecy.

One, concerning natural disasters: on July 28, 2023, it was reported that two-thirds of the U.S. (almost 200 million people) is experiencing an extreme heat wave.

In many places, the heat index ranges between 100 to 110 degrees Fahrenheit.

(Note: The temperature in Pheonix, AZ has exceeded 110 degrees for 30 consecutive days, and the heat index has been higher.)

(Note: On July 28, 2023, UN Sec. Gen. Guterres said, “The era of global warming has ended; the era of global boiling has arrived.” He added that “July 2023 is set to be the hottest month ever recorded in human history.” He wants “dramatic action” to combat it, but that appears to be a push to empower the UN, the WHO, the WEF, and other globalist organizations to control the world.)

Two, concerning an economic collapse: due primarily to high taxes and a high cost of living, California’s population has declined three years in a row.

Businesses and jobs are leaving the state, and it is losing hundreds of millions of dollars of income from tax revenues every year.

Three, concerning the right to buy and sell: in June 2023, UK Brexit Leader Nigel Farage was de-banked, meaning the bank where he was banking (Coutts) canceled his accounts.

Farage believed his accounts were canceled for “political” reasons, and he believed it was wrong for banks to have the ability to control people’s access to their own money.

At first, officials where Farage banked denied that they de-banked him for political reasons, but he filed for and received a report that showed that he was, in fact, de-banked because of his politics, and two of the bank’s top officials were forced to resign.

On July 27, it was reported that Farage said, “Banks should not be and must never become political organizations.”

It sounds to me like Farage was saying he doesn’t believe politically correct bank officials should be allowed to deny people the right to buy and sell because their views are not politically correct.

Students of Bible prophecy can see that this is headed toward the Mark of the Beast.

Here is a similar story, but this one happened in the U.S.

On July 26, 2023, it was reported that Dr. Joseph Mercola’s business (Mercola Market), some of his employees, and some of his employees’ relatives were de-banked for an unspecified reason that the bank refuses to reveal.

Mercola wonders why the bank would de-bank some of his employees and their relatives if it is not political.

The CEO of Mercola’s business said, It’s just hard to believe that your family, your wife, your kids can’t have a bank account because of the opinions of your employer, and they’ve never done anything wrong.”

Have you got that? JPMorgan Chase Bank not only de-banked the CEO of Mercola’s business, but they also went after his wife and kids, who have nothing to do with the operation of the business.

As we approach the end of the age, isn’t it interesting that two different, very large banks in two different nations (the UK and U.S.) de-banked customers at close to the same time?

Four, concerning a global pandemic: on July 30, 2023, it was reported that the Director of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently said the CDC will likely announce in early Sept. that citizens should take an annual vaccination for Covid-19.

Many studies now confirm that the jab has caused heart damage in some patients, so requiring people (including children) to be jabbed every year could be problematic.

Five, concerning Joe Biden’s crime, lies and deceit in Washington, the media, etc.: on July 30, 2023, Zero Hedge reported that an investigative journalist that uses the name KanekoaTheGreat on Twitter said:

  • From Rep. Comer: “This is like organized crime” when the corporate media foolishly asks where is the evidence that the Bidens committed crimes?
  • American banks have submitted hundreds of suspicious activity reports on the Biden family, alleging their involvement in human trafficking, money laundering, and tax fraud. 
  • Congressional investigators have obtained bank account records and wire transfer statements on twenty shell companies owned by the Bidens, which were allegedly used for laundering illegally obtained money from China, Russia, Ukraine, Romania, and Kazakhstan as unregistered foreign agents. 
  • This evidence is supported by hundreds of thousands of emails, tens of thousands of text messages, photographs, audio recordings, calendar statements, and ten years of data from Hunter Biden’s laptop, which the FBI took into its possession in 2019. @MarcoPolo501c3 published a comprehensive “Report on the Biden Laptop,” documenting 459 alleged crimes involving the Biden family and their associates, including 140 business crimes, 191 sex crimes, and 128 drug crimes.
  • A $1,000 reward is offered for any verifiable corrections, but thus far, no crimes have been disputed.

Here is a link to the article:https://www.zerohedge.com/political/organized-crime-multiple-banks-filed-over-170-suspicious-activity-reports-bidensHere is a link to another article by Townhall:https://townhall.com/tipsheet/rebeccadowns/2023/07/28/suspicious-bank-reports-n2626334

This is just part of the report, and if these things are true, honest people must wonder how the DOJ, CIA, FBI, and others can cover all of this up if they are not corrupt.

(Note: It has reached the point that a few Republican members of Congress have called for the FBI to be defunded or shut down altogether.)

(Note: On July 26, 2023, the district judge that was presiding over Hunter’s sweetheart plea deal with the DOJ threw it out, and some pundits believe panic is beginning to grip Washington, DC. One pundit suggested that the DOJ, FBI, CIA, and others may be going after Trump like they are because they fear what he will do to them if he gets back in power.)

(Note: On July 31, 2023, one of Hunter Biden’s most trusted business partners told the House Oversight Committee that is investigating the Biden corruption that Joe Biden is the “Big Guy” that is mentioned in several texts and e-mails. In the past, it was reported that the “Big Guy’s cut of Hunter’s take was 10%.)

(Note: On July 31, 2023, highly respected law professor, Jonathan Turley, said, “I think this is shaping up to be one of the greatest corruption scandals in the history of Washington, and that is saying a lot.”)

Six, concerning a global population reduction: on July 31, 2023, Dr. Robert Malone, internationally recognized scientist and mRNA researcher, said he has reluctantly concluded that the COVID-19 jabs were a CIA operation to depopulate the world.

(My opinion: This will not sit well with those that want to force everyone to get a global ID and be jabbed. And there is little doubt in my mind that Dr. Malone will soon be accused of spreading misinformation.)

FYI: God does not send anyone to Hell (all of us are born with a sin nature and destined to go to Hell because we sin), but God has provided a way (Jesus) for everyone to go to Heaven (and He is the only way to get there; John 14:6).

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.duck_daymond@yahoo.com

Almost Home :: By Daymond Duck

From raptureready.com

The Mark of the Beast is not my number, your number, or the number of anyone that can be identified at this time. It is not my driver’s license number, Social Security number, National or global ID number, or anything like that. It is not a different number for different people. It is the same Mark, name, or number for everyone. It is the Mark, name, or number of a man called the Antichrist.

Notice what the Bible says in Rev. 13:16-18 (KJV):

  • “And he [the False Prophet] causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in [in, not on] their right hand, or in [not on] their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast [the Antichrist], or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six (666).”

Not everyone agrees with me, but as I understand it, the sequence of events will be the Rapture first, perhaps a short period of time (possibly three years), then the confirmation of the covenant, and then the seven-seal judgments and the seven trumpet judgments in the first half of the Tribulation Period.

At the Tribulation Period mid-point (three and one-half years or 1260 days on the Jewish calendar after the confirmation of the covenant), the Antichrist and False Prophet will initiate the Mark of the Beast.

As I see it, the Rapture will take place a minimum of three and one-half years (perhaps more) before the Antichrist and False Prophet require people to take the Mark of the Beast.

Having said this, notice the following report.

On July 10, 2023, it was reported that Professor Richard Werner, prominent German economist, researcher, and Professor of Banking and Finance, said the World Economic Forum (WEF) has declared (his words and mine) that:

  • All citizens must be implanted with a Central Bank Digital Microchip (CBDC chip) in the very near future in order to be able to fully participate in society and do basic things such as purchase food and water.
  • Future citizens will need to use the latest technology (a computer chip) in order to access their bank accounts.
  • You have to think of CDBCs as a control system (or a permit system), not a currency.
  • Currently, they are talking about a phone-based CBDC app, but their ultimate goal is a chip under your skin.

Notice that Werner said the WEF wants all citizens to be implanted with a chip in the very near future.

Notice that it is a permit system to buy and sell.

The Mark of the Beast will be a license system (or a permit system) that will allow people to transact business.

People will need a license or chip with the name, number (666), or Mark of the Beast on it to buy and sell.

If the Rapture is three and one-half years (or more) before the False Prophet and the Antichrist start requiring people to be chipped, it means we are almost home.

Here is a link to the article:


(More: According to a different article on this subject, Prof. Werner believes there will soon be a created economic crisis, followed by a push to get people to use a CBDC tied to a chip implant.)

(Important: When the Mark of the Beast is implemented at the middle of the Tribulation Period, those that take it will experience the wrath of God forever: Rev. 14:9-11.)

Here are more recent events that seem to indicate that the saved are almost home.

One, concerning a global population reduction and the death penalty for those that refuse to take the Mark and worship the statue of the Antichrist: on July 12, 2023, it was reported that the UN has published a new report called “State of the World Population.”

To solve the world’s population concerns, the UN is pushing abortion and contraception.

(My opinion: Although the article doesn’t say it, the UN is also pushing the gay agenda and euthanasia to reduce the population of the earth.)

(More: On July 14, 2023, Vice Pres, Kamala Harris, was speaking at Coppin State Univ. in Baltimore, MD about climate change and cutting greenhouse gases when she said, “When we invest in clean energy and electric vehicles and reduce population, more of our children can breathe clean air and drink clean water.” Critics said she accidentally revealed that the White House wants to reduce the population of the U.S., but the White House said she meant to say “reduce pollution” instead of “reduce population.”)

Two, concerning the globalist plan to establish a world government by 2030 or sooner: author and prophecy expert Jonathan Brentner recently (July 10, 2023) reported that “On June 28, 2023, King Charles III and London Mayor Sadiq Khan activated a ‘climate clock’ with the warning that there are 6 years and 24 days left to limit global warming before it brings doom upon the world. Remarkably, the king included minutes and seconds in his countdown to the ruin of the world due to climate change.”

Brentner astutely notes that “the king’s clock ends five months short of 2030.”

(My opinion: I have no idea why King Charles has a countdown clock that zeros out five months before 2030 unless it is another scare tactic to try to speed up world government.)

Three, concerning natural disasters increasing in frequency and intensity at the end of the age: on July 15, 2023, an area in southeast Pennsylvania received 6-7 inches of rain in 45 minutes.

Five adults drowned in their vehicles, and two children are missing.

Four, concerning the ashes of a red heifer without spot or blemish (a requirement for cleansing priests who build or serve at a rebuilt Temple): the Jews are building a tourist and research center at Shiloh (where the tabernacle stood for about 300 years after they returned to the Promised Land from Egypt).

On July 16, 2023, it was reported that Jews moved a 22-month-old red heifer to the facility and will soon move two more there so visitors can view (but not touch) them.

Five, concerning God giving people over to reprobate minds at the end of the age for rejecting what the Word of God says about gay issues: expert Bible prophecy teacher Terry James recently asked in an article, “How have we reached such a place in this nation that the top three people (president, vice-president, and presidential spokesperson) in the presidential administration are seemingly unable to demonstrate normal mental function?”

Good question, Terry.

If their mental issues are not related to their unusually extreme support for unbiblical gay issues and their refusal to repent, why are some of America’s top officials having problems saying or reading simple sentences?

Six, concerning famine at the end of the age: on July 15, 2023, the UN estimated that about 735 million people (mostly in Africa) are facing hunger, and the number is rising.

(Question: If millions of people are going hungry, and I don’t doubt it, then why are so many nations agreeing to kill cattle, use less fertilizer, and take land out of production under the guise of climate change? Is climate change a ruse to justify reducing the population of the earth?).

Seven, concerning a digital ID and a digital currency (steps toward the Mark of the Beast): on July 16, 2023, investigative journalist Leo Hohmann (leohohmann.com) reported the following:

  • Ethiopia has announced that it will use a World Bank-supported digital ID system.
  • Every Ethiopian citizen must have a digital ID by 2025 to do business at a bank.
  • Every Ethiopian citizen must have a digital ID before they can receive government benefits or spend digital money.
  • Ethiopia will use iris recognition technology (eye scans) in association with the digital ID system.
  • The day is coming when Ethiopian citizens will not be allowed to buy and sell or get on the Internet without a digital ID.

Eight, concerning a departing from the faith and the coming of a one-world religion at the end of the age: on July 15, 2023, it was reported that conservative Roman Catholic Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano has posted a video accusing Pope Francis of attacking the church from within by purging faithful followers.

According to Vigano, “Those who hold positions of power (Pope Francis and his supporters) have shown themselves to be enemies of the institution they oversee and of the people over whom they exercise their authority (they have become enemies of the faithful members). This subversive action leads those who are not willing to accept the betrayal to become the object of persecution: just as the doctors who chose to treat patients during the pandemic lost their licenses and were deprived of their salary, so the priests and religious who they do not adapt to the Bergoglian revolution (Pope Francis’ false teachings) are being removed from churches, expelled from convents, and left without any means of support.”

Here is a link to the article:


Nine, concerning hyperinflation and a global economic collapse early in the Tribulation Period (Rev. 6:56): on July 19, 2023, Mike Adams interviewed Dave Hodges (The Common Sense Show) on the Health Ranger Report, and they discussed the impact of the BRICS nations (and more than 100 others) plan to abandon the dollar perhaps as early as next month (Aug. 2023).

Adams and Hodges agreed that it will probably take a few months for the impact to take hold, but ultimately it is going to cause hyperinflation in the U.S.

They also agreed that this may be a planned event that they will use to get Americans to accept a digital ID and currency.

When the U.S. government establishes the digital ID and currency, they will be able to control who can buy and sell, seize bank accounts (like the Canadian government did to the truckers that protested), and force people to eat fake meat, worms, crickets, etc.

(My opinion: Hyperinflation and hunger in the U.S. will lead to global hyperinflation and hunger.)

FYI: God does not send anyone to Hell (all of us are born with a sin nature and destined to go to Hell because we sin), but God has provided a way (Jesus) for everyone to go to Heaven (and He is the only way to get there; John 14:6).

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.


Pay Attention:: by Daymond Duck

On July 4, 2023, Jean Worland (jean.worland@roadrunner.com) posted these words from Hal Lindsey:

In Matthew 16:2-3, Jesus admonished us to discern the times. That means pay attention to what’s going on. Study and apply God’s word. And pray about everything. Today, we see signs of distress all over the world. We can see in real-time things the Bible long ago told us about. And it’s not pretty. Lawlessness, moral confusion, slander, deception, hedonism, uncontrolled rage, and cruelty fill our sightlines. These things are no longer theoretical events to be analyzed from a distance. They’re happening all around us, and it can be scary.

Jesus told us to watch the signs many times (Matt. 24:42-43; Mark 13:33-37; Luke 21:36; Rev. 3:3), but those that are not watching do not know or do not care.

Pay attention because “We must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ” (II Cor. 5:10).

The world needs to know what is going on, and it is the responsibility of the Church to speak out.

Here are some events that got my attention in recent days:

One, concerning the decline of America and world government: on July 4, 2023, highly respected World Net Daily (WND) journalist, Bob Unruh, wrote an article about Justin Haskins’ warning that America could lose its independence before the 2024 election.

Haskins is the director of the Socialism Research Center at The Heartland Institute, and his article was posted on a conservative web magazine called the Federalist.

According to Unruh, Haskins said:

  • A proposal to give the UN great power to deal with “emergencies” could cause the U.S. as we know it to cease to exist.
  • During an emergency (a natural disaster, a pandemic, whatever), the UN wants the authority to call an emergency and be given power over most of the world.
  • The UN will be authorized to determine what is an emergency, when it begins, when it ends, and retain power over most of the world for as long as it wants.
  • Instead of defending America’s independence and sovereignty, the Biden administration has already expressed support for this UN power grab.
  • Declaring the end of the U.S. sounds dire, but it will be a fact comhttps://www.wnd.com/2023/07/biden-helping-u-n-control-life-u-s-know-cease-exist/e Sept. 2024 if people don’t stand up

Here is a link to the article:

(Note: It is difficult to keep all the meetings, —UN, WHO, WEF, IMF —meeting dates, and agendas straight. Haskins wrote about what the UN is trying to do that will destroy the U.S. before the next election. There will be other meetings that could destroy the U.S. The thing to remember about all these groups and meetings is that world leaders are very close to establishing a world government.)

Here are some things I have written about in the past two months:

The World Health Organization (WHO) wants:

  • A Global Code of Conduct.
  • A Global Digital Passport.
  • A Global Digital Currency.
  • A Global Digital Health Record.
  • A Global Digital Health Certification Network (GDHCN).

The World Economic Forum (WEF) wants:

  • Holy Books written by AI.
  • The International Monetary Fund (IMF) wants:
  • A Global Digital Currency and Transaction Data.

The United Nations (UN) wants:

  • A Global Digital ID linked to everyone’s bank account.
  • A seven-year covenant with many to bring in a world government.

Emmanuel Macron wants:

  • A Global Tax

Unless God intervenes, the world is on the brink of a world government and the Tribulation Period.

People need to pay attention because where we spend eternity could be at stake.

The Church is running out of time to be salt and light.

(Personal note: Many times, I have said, “The day might come when things start happening so fast that it is impossible to keep up with them.” There are times when I think that day has arrived, and only part of what happens gets reported.)

Two, concerning the decline of America and a possible global economic collapse: on July 7, 2023, it was reported that Russia confirmed that the BRICS nations (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa) intend to start trading in a new currency backed by gold, and the official announcement will be made at the BRICS Summit in August.

Some officials predict that this will cause the value of the Dollar to plunge, cause a major surge in inflation in the U.S., eventually be seen as the beginning of the end of the Dollar, and send America’s superpower status on a downhill slide from which it will never recover.

I am not an economic expert, but it seems to me that there is no way for this to not have a negative impact on the global economy.

(Note: Several other nations are seeking to join the BRICS nations.)

Three, concerning the turmoil in Israel and its impact on Israel’s future: since January of 2023, there have been major riots and demonstrations in Israel over an upcoming vote on a bill to change Israel’s judiciary.

Israel’s top judges are appointed by other judges.

Liberal judges have taken over the judiciary.

They appoint liberal judges to always ensure a liberal majority on the court, and the liberal majority they appoint always votes to keep Israel a secular nation.

There are conservative Jews that want to worship on the Temple Mount, religious Jews that want to go back under the Mosaic Law (the first five books of the Bible, called the Torah or the Pentateuch), Jews that want to rebuild the Temple, resume the animal sacrifices, etc. But even if those conservative and religious Jews get the Israeli Knesset to pass a bill to do these things, the liberal judges can declare the bill illegal and kill it.

That is right; unelected liberal judges can overrule a majority vote of the elected officials, and they have angered many of the elected officials with their liberal votes.

The latest Netanyahu government is conservative.

It has the support of several religious parties.

Netanyahu’s government wants to pass a bill (called the Reasonableness Standard Bill) to take the power to appoint judges away from the liberal judges and empower the government to appoint judges.

In addition to that, if the Israeli Knesset passes a bill (after three readings and three votes) and the unelected judges declare it illegal, the Knesset wants the power to review the Judge’s decision and perhaps vote to overturn it or part of it, etc.

As I understand it, the ongoing riots and demonstrations in Israel are about two things:

  • One, who makes the laws in Israel (the people’s elected representatives in the Knesset or a group of unelected liberal judges).
  • Two, what kind of nation will Israel be in the future, a secular nation or a religious nation?

According to the Bible, Israel will go back under the Mosaic Law (the laws that God gave to Moses), they will rebuild the Temple, and they will resume the animal sacrifices.

(Note: Some orthodox Jews believe the Messiah will give them permission to rebuild the Temple. Based on John 5:43, some prophecy teachers believe the Jews will accept the Antichrist as the Messiah. They believe the covenant that is confirmed (strengthened) by the Antichrist will give the Jews permission to rebuild the Temple, and it will be rebuilt very early in the Tribulation Period. That will be after the Rapture, and Israel may be taking a turn in that direction now.)

Are you paying attention?

In addition to the riots and demonstrations being about whether Israel will be a secular nation or a religious nation in the future, here are two more events that I have written about in recent weeks.

  • The Jews may soon have the ashes of a red heifer that will permit them to rebuild the Temple.
  • A member of Netanyahu’s ruling Likud party has submitted a bill to divide the Temple Mount between Muslims and Jews so the Temple can be rebuilt.

The effort to rebuild the Temple appears to be slowly advancing.

(Update: On July 11, 2023, the Reasonableness Standard Bill passed in the Knesset by a vote of 64 to 56. If it passes a second and then a third vote, hopefully before the end of this month, it will become law in Israel. In that case, Israel will soon become more religious and less secular.)

Four, concerning persecution and the coming one-world religion: on July 10, 2023, the New American posted an article that said a UN-authorized report urges “governments to threaten and punish religious leaders and organizations that don’t go along with the LGBTQ orthodoxy.”

Right now, this appears to be just a recommendation, but the Bible teaches that extreme persecution and death await those that do not follow the anti-Christian globalist agenda during the Tribulation Period.

The U.S. pays 22% of the UN budget.

(More: A different article said the UN report condemns the anti-gay interpretation of Judeo-Christian scriptures, it celebrates religious groups that promote gay and transgender values, it says medical workers and institutions should be forced to perform abortions, transgender treatments, surgeries, etc.).

(My opinion: The LGBTQ agenda should not be considered superior to religious beliefs. Freedom of religion will not exist when people are forced to abandon the Scriptures and go along with the LGBTQ agenda. Authorizing the UN to tell people what they can and cannot believe in the Bible, Koran, on any other book is the same as establishing a new global religion. Forcing healthcare workers to perform abortions and mutilate the bodies of children is satanic.)

FYI: God does not send anyone to Hell (all of us are born with a sin nature and destined to go to Hell because we sin), but God has provided a way (Jesus) for everyone to go to Heaven (and He is the only way to get there; John 14:6).

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 your sins, cleanse you, come into your heart and be your Saviour; then tell someone that you have done this.
