I’m always on the lookout for those who transcend the constraints of popular thought and allow the Holy Spirit to direct their understanding of the Last Days. I have found very, very few who have enough of that ‘Last Days’ understanding to be able to give them more than the briefest of mentions.
Well, I can now say that I’ve found one name that is worthy of great commendation:
We are approaching the beginning of the 50th year of the Last Days. They began on June 7th, 1967, and Jesus said that the Last Days would not last longer than a generation.
Are there just 20 years left?
Are there LESS than 20 years left?
THAT, of course, is in the hands of God, but one thing that should concentrate out minds is the meaning of a 50th Year. Seven sevens is forty nine, and we are finishing the forty ninth year of the Last Days.
But, the 50th?
The 50th year is special. It has a name. We have Greek-ized it and call it Jubilee. But, it is more correctly:
Yuval (pronounced: yew-val)
I believe that this marks the beginning of the Last of the Last Days.
Events are moving forward in ways that make me uncomfortable. We are seeing patterns in the financial markets that we’ve only seen immediately before major collapses. We are seeing the threat of war in the Middle East escalate in ways that you would expect, if Gog and Magog were on the horizon. We have political corruption that is so obvious that the least aware among us have seen it. The hatred of tiny Israel continues to rise and rise, as our morality falls.
War has flared in the Caucasus region, with Azerbaijan launching attacks against Armenia. The Panama Papers has set the political hens squawking. I have some more on Israel. And, the political Armageddon that is scheduled for November might not wait for election day.
My grandma used to call this a bunch of fuss and feathers. Unfortunately, my grandmother isn’t around to share her wisdom with us, so you’re stuck with me. Actually, it’s probably good that she isn’t here to see how awful and foolish her country has become.
It’s going to be a long, hot summer, and I really hope that you’ll be ready for this.
There appears to be no country on Earth more reviled than the Jewish State. To hear her detractors speak, you would think that she was responsible for every evil in the world, from crop failures in Zambia to smog in California.
The antisemitism has grown to a crescendo, and I find myself deafened by it. You must be as well, so I thought that I would lay out some of my own observations about Israel, having lived there for 15 years – and with family STILL living there.
Most important of all, Israel is the key to the prophecies of the days that we live in, the Last Days.
As the darkness closes in around us, it is natural for our thoughts to turn towards the prospect of a grim future. And, in the short-term, it IS grim. But, as John The Apostle contemplated these things, he embraced these events, for they pointed to the return of our God and King, Jesus Christ.
I must keep reminding myself of this, as I look upon the evil that is happening around us, and within us.
I am grateful to all who have chosen to make a stand for Christ. For the Truth. For Righteousness. For an eternity with God. It is a struggle, and it will take everything you have. But, it is worth far more than anything that we can give.
This week was filled with apocalyptic events. But, the one that hit me the hardest was probably one that you didn’t hear about.
Obama just knocked out the foundation of the American Empire.
That foundation is the Petrodollar system, and Obama just communicated with the Gulf Arabs that he is/has throwing them under the bus. This will destroy the basis for power for America. Without the Petrodollar system, America will not be able to afford its military or it’s domestic wealth.
I’m really struggling to understand why Obama said what he said. I really am.
Next week will mark a turning point. Either the Republic continues as it is, with all of its faults and corruptions, or it turns deeper into Empire. Rome stood at that same turning point more than two thousand years ago, and America is remarkably similar to Rome.
In fact, that similarity was by design.
Anyway, next week will be of enormous importance. Of course there will be other weeks of such importance, but there are few times in which such importance mimics history so closely and allows us to quote Shakespeare:
The next few months will verify the direction that we see the world going in. Syria will either survive, or the Gulf Arabs and Turkey will invade and destroy Damascus. Donald Trump will either receive the nomination and win the election, or the American elites will stage a coup and install Hillary Clinton. Either gold will rise and the Stock Market collapse, or the central bankers will be successful in heading off yet another financial armageddon. Either North Korea launches an EMP attack upon America, or the Chinese successfully suppress the chubby kid in Pyongyang.
I’m afraid that I’m not hopeful about ANY of the above.
