I pray you love and discern this promise of God: “He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him” (John 3:36). This verse reveals the truth that to effectively believe in Christ, is to actually believe Christ. But most pulpits today are deceptively silent on God’s wrath though “the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness” (Rom. 1:18). [Bold emphasis added]
The insanity of lawlessness continues by people hell-bent on destruction, rioting, looting, and chaos. They want people to bow to their evil ungodly agenda, as whole police departments are literally being overrun by precinct-burning thugs as Democrat-run cities all across America not only allow, but actually incite ever-increasing mayhem and lawlessness. But God can and will redirect people’s attention by far more horrific destructions promised by His Word.
What many do not know is that end-time judgments lurk in the heavens above. But most people have no biblical knowledge of, nor do they have a discerning spirit to see coming judgments that will judge unbelief, as unabated lawlessness begets more. But “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap” (Gal. 6:7). Let’s pray that lawless unbelievers confess their sins, repent, and by faith turn to Christ before it’s eternally too late.
Reading God’s Word and praying for wisdom and discernment, the first two Seal and Trumpet Judgments appear to be physical red alerts to believers and unbelievers alike. They will precede the first 3 1/2 years of the 7-year Tribulation which is identifiable by two events: 1) God’s two witnesses who “prophesy one thousand two hundred and sixty days, [3 1/2 years] clothed in sackcloth” (Rev. 11:3) from Jerusalem; and 2) Antichrist will “confirm a [7-year] covenant with many” (Dan. 9:27), a temporal 3 1/2 year quasi peace that will be shattered by Antichrist 42 months into his reign when Satan is permanently cast out of heaven, see Rev. 12:7–9.
The first Seal Judgment of Rev. 6:1–2, being the rider on the white horse, whom I believe to be Pope Francis, has been conquering world religions for about five years by his false unity. He has united Islam, Judaism, and other pagan religions to the great harlot church of the Vatican. That’s now followed by COVID-19 and its subsequent lockdowns which destroyed the economy; then, isolation, social distancing, mask-wearing and suppression of the truth has led to the lawlessness, riots, chaos and destruction we’re seeing today. But people’s attention will soon be redirected.
And this may be the way God redirects attention: “The first angel sounded: And hail and fire followed, mingled with blood, and they were thrown to the earth. And a third of the trees were burned up, and all green grass was burned up” (Rev. 8:7). And with peace being taken from the earth under the second Seal Judgment resulting in war, or multiple wars, the world could see the first Trumpet Judgment by the fall harvest months of this year. Years ago I wrote about how this could develop and the fact that science will likely try explaining it away as a natural event.
The earth has been pummeled by hail, fire, meteors and asteroids before, even by fire and brimstone; see Gen. 19:24 and Joshua 10:11. But the difference this time is the fact that Rev. 8:7 will be a global event, not involving just two cities, or war being waged against Israel. As I said many years ago, I believe the earth will pass through an asteroid or meteor belt which will rain heart-changing fire and great destruction from the heavens, setting trees and green grass ablaze. And it will then be that “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Rom. 10:13).
Given the false doctrines, worship, traditions and teachings that have crept into the institutional church, together with the benign and watered-down gospel that’s become so prevalent; the false ecumenism led by Pope Francis and spread abroad by influential preachers like Joel Osteen, Rick Warren, Kenneth Copeland, James Robison, and thousands of their followers; and the violence, destruction and mayhem afflicting nations as lawless people pillage and plunder at will, I would not be surprised if the Rev. 8:7 Trumpet Judgment is revealed by the fall harvest months of 2020 or soon thereafter. The whole purpose of the Tribulation is for a great harvest of souls to Christ.
In addition to the foregoing, I draw your attention to the United Nations’ 15-year plan called the “2030 Agenda For Sustainable Development”. The plan has now been in effect for 5 years and has an end-date of 2030. Unsuppressed truth sees its proud rotten fruit to date: massive global unemployment, brewing wars, perplexity of nations, violence, massive loss of freedoms, severe food shortages, and unprecedented global, national and personal debt, and so much more, all of which is totally UNSUSTAINABLE! Globalists’ 2030 Agenda is utterly failing and they know it. Soon, now, we can expect them to roll out the big guns of evil control, injustice and abuse!
Microchipping humans on a personal and business level began some years ago, and has now come to the United States, and it’s only going to expand from here. This article headline says: “House Passes Bill To ‘Voluntarily’ Begin Placing Human Implantable Microchips Into The Bodies Of All State Employees”. Microchipping humans has its nefarious roots in, and is the precursor to, the end-time mark of the beast, together with mandatory vaccines. I’ve said for many years that end-time events have set upon the world gradually, so gradually, in fact, that even many Christians think there’s nothing sinister about these life-enhancing technologies.
Based on the same microchipping technology in the field of vaccines, note this headline from greatgameindia.com entitled “Trust Stamp – Bill Gates Funded Program That Will Create Your Digital Identity Based On Your Vaccination History”. And “He [Antichrist] causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name” (Rev. 13:16–17). It’s coming, and there is nothing we can do to stop it, for it’s also the promise of God. And prayer will not void God’s promise. What’s important is being prepared for that time when one’s ability to buy or sell is based on the mark of the beast.
“Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man” (Luke 21:36). For, if we are “the freewoman” (Gal. 4:21–31), “Then the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days…the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent” (Rev. 12:6, 14). Incoming judgments will draw much attention and many hearts to Christ.
