To every American Christian reading this, our spiritual reprieve from the evils of the Obama presidency and Biden vice presidency has come to an end. Years ago I said President Donald Trump’s presidency was indeed a reprieve from the end-times satanic onslaught, and that God was giving the church in America time to repent, regroup and prepare its people for the next prophetic end-time events. Sadly, most of the organized church did not awake to the God-decreed signs of the times, nor repent of unbelief.
This past Wednesday, January 20, 2021, the forces of wickedness, lies, deception and fraud won the battle that ragged for the White House. With Joe Biden and Kamala Harris at the helm of our nation, the wicked forces of the Obama-Biden era will come rushing back, and with a vengeance. Wickedness in all its forms will be the rule of the day in a Biden-Harris White House. My prayer and the prayer of many other true Christians for President Trump to serve another four-year term was not answered the way we wanted, but indeed, God did answer our prayers with “No”.
Again, I remind every reader that the prayers of the saints will never override God’s prophetic Word for the end-times. The time has come for the spirits of Antichrist to win battle after battle, but the war is won by God and His elect saints. By faith, believe and prepare in God’s promises, that, “I [Daniel] was watching; and the same horn [Antichrist] was making war against the saints, and prevailing against them, until the Ancient of Days came, and a judgment was made in favor of the saints of the Most High, and the time came for the saints to possess the kingdom” (Dan. 7:21–22). And for those who say “But that’s Old Testament and doesn’t apply to us today” read this parallel New Testament Word that, “It was granted to him [Antichrist] to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation” (Rev. 13:7). And for those deceived by the false pre-trib rapture promise, I can only pray that they come out from under that deception.
Absent true conversion new birth faith in Christ Jesus, Joe Biden’s spiritual path of destruction the next four years will open avenues for the spirits of Antichrist to have their way in America, which is being destroyed at the behest of globalists’ New World Order. What’s utterly stunning, is the number of professing Christians who voted for the Biden-Harris ticket, knowing full well that they’re both rabid protectors of infant human abortion, murdering the unborn while in the safety of their mother’s womb! If anyone did that to animals, they would be judged by the courts as an evil person and imprisoned for years! And just as Barack Hussein Obama bathed the White House in the abomination of the LGBTQ+ gay pride colors, so too Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will advance the existential wickedness that continues to further destroy the human race!
Based on Jesus’ parable of the fig tree at Matt. 24:32–35, together with Psa. 90:10, Joe Biden’s four-year presidency will bring us near the middle of the tribulation, when in the spring months of 2025, the “great tribulation” (Matt. 24:15–28) of 3 1/2 years will begin. My hope and prayer was that President Trump, who rolled back many of Barack Obama’s ungodly orders, would, by his conservative nature, hold at bay the many evils that would otherwise overwhelm this nation. But with God’s sovereign appointment of the Biden-Harris ticket, we of true faith in Christ must be prayerfully content as we see “the Day approaching” (Heb. 10:25). I yet strongly believe the seven-year tribulation will begin in the fall harvest months of this year, 2021.
With Joe Biden and Kamala Harris now sworn into office and in command of the United States, America just lost greatly! Lies, deceit, fraud and wickedness have won this battle, and truth and justice have indeed fallen. True Christians, please hear this, we must prepare for the loss of many battles to come. What we saw play out in our nation’s Capital with the inauguration of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris is the first of many defeats that will, by the spirits of Antichrist defeat justice, truth and righteousness. This is why now is the time to prepare for the middle of the tribulation, that you and your loved ones may be “counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass” (Luke 21:36) in the great tribulation. Now is the time to walk in humility, repentance, and confession before the Lord our God, loving the testimony of Jesus that, at the appointed time we find the safety and provision of God for the 1,260 days of great tribulation, see Rev. 12:6, 14.
And, no, that’s not foolishly setting a day and hour for Christ’s return but knowing the season of His return which is altogether godly, wise, biblical and pleasing to God. God and His Christ did not give us voluminous amounts of end-time Scriptures just to be ignored, though many do just that. God gave us His Word to prepare us to endure a time unlike anything ever experienced, as God said, “But he who endures to the end shall be saved” (Matt. 24:13). I trust you and your loved ones want to be included in that number. So believe God and prepare in His Word.
Please discern these biblical truths: the first 3 1/2 years of “tribulation”, or 42 months, or 1,260 days, is revealed at Rev. 11:3 for the 3 1/2-year ministry of the two witnesses. The second 3 1/2 years of “great tribulation”, or 42 months, or 1,260 days, is identified at Rev. 12:6 and 14, when “the woman [meaning “the freewoman” of Gal. 4:21–31, the true prepared Church] 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”. These combined 2,520 days, or 84 months, or 7 years, comprise the 7-year tribulation. And remember that Christ promised to gather His elect “Immediately after the tribulation of those days” (Matt. 24:29–31). Therefore, we know that true Christians will remain on earth for the full 7-year tribulation, but “of that day and hour [of His return] no one knows” (Matt. 24:36). But God gives more information of the days “after the tribulation”. Here it is…
God said “from the time that the daily sacrifice is taken away, and the abomination of desolation is set up, [revealed at Matt. 24:15 & 2 Thess. 2:4 occurring mid-trib] there shall be one thousand two hundred and ninety days” (Dan. 12:11). Thus, 1,290 minus 1,260 equals 30 days, meaning, the resurrection rapture could occur in one of those 30 days. But the next verse says “Blessed is he who waits, and comes to the one thousand three hundred and thirty-five days” (Dan. 12:12). Thus, 1,335 minus 1,260 equals 75 days. Therefore, we can be certain that “the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ shall rise first” (1 Thess. 4:16), at one of those 75 days. No one knows the day or hour of Christ’s return, but God has indeed revealed to us the season!
In closing today: “Let God arise, let His enemies be scattered; let those also who hate Him flee before Him. As smoke is driven away, so drive them away, as wax melts before the fire, so let the wicked perish at the presence of God. But let the righteous be glad; let them rejoice before God; yes, let them rejoice exceedingly” (Psa. 68:1–3).
