“My vine…My fig tree”

Friday, October 19, 2018

The groundwork has been laid for the ushering in of the final seven years of this age, but most people are oblivious to it due to its subtle and normalized approach. The technologies that will bring into existence the mark of the beast through biometrics, artificial intelligence, genetic and DNA manipulation and robotics, are already being used today. But when did all this begin?

The event that began the end-time clock is the rebirth of Israel. Though people who witnessed WWI and WW2 believed those wars were the event, their beliefs were not based in truth. While wars, which have been waged for millennia, are synonymous with the time of the end, they are not the biblical event that began the beginning of the end; rather it was necessarily the rebirth of the nation of Israel. Since that time, the end-time beast-technology has progressed exponentially.

Israel was reborn on May 14, 1948 in fulfillment of the prophet saying, “Who has heard such a thing? Who has seen such things? Shall the earth be made to give birth in one day? Or shall a nation be born at once?…Shall I bring to the time of birth, and not cause delivery?” (Isa. 66:8–9).

Looking to that future day, then, Jesus said, “Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near. So you also, when you see all these things, know that it is near – at the doors! Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place” (Matt. 24:32–34).

We know “the fig tree” is Israel. “For a nation has come up against My land, strong and without number; his teeth are the teeth of a lion, and he has the fangs of a fierce lion. He has laid waste My vine, and ruined My fig tree; he has stripped it bare and thrown it away; it’s branches are made white” (Joel 1:6–7). Also see Hos. 9:10. Rome was that destroyer nation who in AD 70 caused the decimation of Jerusalem, and Israel ceased from being a nation.

In about AD 476, however, Rome itself fell from global domination by marauding Vandals and Visigoths causing Rome to also lay dormant until just after WW2 when the European Union was formed, beginning the revived reign of Rome as spoken by the prophet Daniel. About a year later the United Nations was formed. But Israel being reborn in one day was the single event that led to the revival and start of the second and final rule of Rome, and creation of the United Nations.

Those three entities, reborn Israel, revived Rome, and the United Nations have grown alongside each other and are specific entities on the end-time stage. But by the world’s media, and sadly even much of the Church, life is perceived as normal; and progress beneficial to all, as many false prophets magnify global unity and ever-increasing American greatness. Many are ignorant of the signs of the end-times as technology marches toward the mark of the beast.

End-time events are now occurring swiftly, intentionally, deceptively, and on the guise that all is normal. But life is far from normal for anyone paying attention and exercising discernment. The pre-tribulation rapture promised by the Church is a lie from hell, deceptively designed to deceive people of faith in Jesus Christ. The mark of the beast is now in plain sight and the Church is fast asleep concerning it. But you can remedy that for yourself and those in your sphere of influence.

PLEASE PAY ATTENTION. PLEASE TAKE 27 MINUTES TO WATCH THE FOLLOWING VIDEO. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RBDGabKZA6s Rick Wiles, of TRU NEWS, is a trusted Christian brother with relevant headlines from around the world. In this video you will see that India has already implemented their form of the mark of the beast.

The system used by India is obviously not the actual mark of the beast of Rev. 13:16–17, but is a precursor, a forerunner, a beta test of the true mark of the beast to come. And what’s remarkable is that 80% of the population is voluntarily accepting of the cashless system, replaced with a biometric system that enables fiscal accounts for all, whether rich or poor, to buy and sell.

Modern technology is mostly deceptive. It’s ostensibly marketed for our convenience, but is realistically designed to track, listen and record the behaviors, actions, responses, likes and dislikes of people. Governments will ultimately unite under one head, Antichrist, and gathering profiles on people will be vital to that end. We will see biblical prophesies fulfilled that previous generations only thought of as science fiction. And behind it all is Lucifer, the god of this age.

In the tribulation, many who believe and trust in the pre-tribulation rapture will embrace the actual mark of the beast, disbelieving its reality as just another technology enhancing our lives, and pointing to the fact that they haven’t been raptured and are still here on earth. Why? Their teachers, pastors and leaders sold them the pre-trib rapture lie, because they loved not the truth.

Leaders of nations are now in turmoil and perplexity as the spirit of Antichrist is increasingly unrestrained, forcing all nations to unite under a U.N.-mandated globalism. Leaders like U.S. President Donald Trump are opposed to globalism, as national borders are being erased, that all become one under the dictate and rule of the U.N. Nationalism with borders was God’s idea, but globalism without borders is Antichrist’s idea, and these are now in great conflict as we see the liberal Left increasingly inciting violence against the conservative Right.

But we must “Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape [not meaning the rapture] all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man” (Luke 21:36). That’s something that only you can do. The Church and its leadership will not lead you in this, because it has a vested interest in protecting its false pre-tribulation rapture narrative. I implore you in the love of Christ: know God’s Word and recognize the signs of the times.

Jesus’ rebuke of the religious leaders of His day are justly applicable today, saying, “When it is evening you say, ‘It will be fair weather, for the sky is red’; and in the morning, ‘It will be foul weather today, for the sky is red and threatening.’ Hypocrites! You know how to discern the face of the sky, but you cannot discern the signs of the times” (Matt. 16:2–3). Let that not be true of us who profess faith in Jesus Christ, but that we are wise as serpents and harmless as doves.
