It is with a heavy heart, that I must turn to doing yet another special report. I do not like doing these. In fact, it would be better to say that I hate doing these, because I would only do them when there is sin and deception within the Body of Christ. And, there is nothing that gives me more grief.
Furthermore, we are required by God to reprove and rebuke those who sin while claiming leadership within the Body of Christ. (1Timothy 5:17-20)
So, it is with great sorrow, that I must call out Rick Wiles of Trunews.
I am so bad at prognostication, that I won’t really try to tell you what WILL happen. The best that I can do is describe the threats. These threats have been looming larger and larger with each passing year. And, some of them are new.
Please treat these seriously.
My hope is that we will have another year where we successfully dodge the bullets being fired at us. But, there is a limit to how often we can do that.
Of all the years that I’ve been writing articles, I believe that 2017 is the most important. And, I’ve been writing since the mid ’90s. Only time will tell, whether I’m right (and write). And, 2018 might be even MORE momentous.
However, we’ll deal with 2018 later. Right now, we need to look back at this past year and examine what was important. But, I want to do that a bit differently than I normally do, at this time of year.
I want to look at the articles that YOU thought were important, and a few that I thought to be important.
Daniel 8 is a tough chapter to work through, and I believe that it was done that way on purpose. But, since it is an important chapter in an important book, it is worth our time to try and understand it.
And, I believe that we have some ability to piece together what can and cannot be the correct interpretation of Daniel 8.
So, let’s try to figure out if the Antichrist MUST come from the region in and around the Middle East – including Greece and parts of central Asia.
Donald Trump just did the one thing that I did not expect him to do:
Recognize Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel
He promised to do that during his campaign, and he delivered on that promise. And, I’m not used to American Presidents doing that – especially, when it comes to Jerusalem.
The side-effect of this event, will be a heating up of conflict in the Middle East and an acceleration of The Last Days. I believe that this is a very big deal, and I suspect that you will agree, when you see the evidence that I see.
Christians have been talking about the Great Tribulation from the moment that Christ proclaimed its coming. It will be the most horrifying and awful moment in time, since the beginning of Creation. It will be so bad, that you would rather die than go through it.
That is COMPLETELY understandable.
Likewise, it is completely understandable to want to know how long the Great Tribulation is. If you are going to go through it, you’d like to know how long it will last.
Horrible times are always more bearable, when you know when they will end.
We spend a lot of time thinking about The Big Event – The Great Tribulation, Gog and Magog, Global Thermonuclear War, etc. What we often fail to realize is that there are a host of events that happen between now and then, events that bring the world to the point of the destruction foretold by the prophets in the Bible.
I know this failure to realize all too well. I am routinely appalled by my inability to see what is right in front of my eyes. But, God is good, and He always brings someone along to show me what I’ve missed. And, I pass this hard-earned wisdom on to you.
Damascus is going to fall, and it will be horrifying.
Thursday marked the 100 year anniversary of the Balfour Declaration. It laid the groundwork for the completely legal distribution of land rights to the Jews, as the foul and evil Ottoman Empire was being dismembered. And, make no mistake, the Ottoman Empire was truly corrupt and Satanic.
(Remember the Armenian Genocide?)
It was also a moment in time that marked the spread of the idea of the Nation State. The monarchies were dying. The ‘divine right of kings’ was losing recognition. And, it was the high water mark for Christianity in Europe and North America. After that, it was downhill.
Never forget that the founding of the State of Israel and her success has been entirely due to the Christians.
