Luke 21:25 – “There will appear signs in the sun, moon and stars; and on earth, nations will be in anxiety and bewilderment at the sound and surge of the sea.”
Psalm 65:8 – “This is why those living at the ends of the earth stand in awe of your signs.”
Prophecy continues to be fulfilled at an alarming pace. The state of Israel is a fact. Jerusalem is controlled by the Jews and belongs to Israel. The Hebrew language has been revived and all Israeli citizens are required to learn it. The desert is blooming. And Jewish authorities are preparing to rebuild the Temple in Jerusalem.
Israel, Nations, and Their Machinations
Zechariah 12:2-3 – “I will make Jerusalem a cup that will stagger the surrounding peoples. The siege of Jerusalem will also be against Judah. I will make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all the peoples. All who try to lift that burdensome stone will be cut in pieces, though all the earth’s nations will be assembled against her.” [bold mine]
Jeremiah 31:5 – “Again you shall plant vineyards on the hills of Samaria; those doing the planting will enjoy its fruit.”
Jeremiah 31:22 – “Judah and all its cities shall dwell there together, farmers and those who wander with their flocks.”
Israel and Jerusalem continues to be that burdensome stone:
- In March the Donald Trump recognized Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights.
- In November, a letter composed by the Chief Rabbi of Tzfat, Rabbi Shmuel Eliyah thanked President Donald Trump for recognizing Israel’s right to Judea and Samaria. The letter was signed by over two-hundred other Rabbis, and quoted both Jeremiah verses above, stating that Trump’s actions have fulfilled both prophecies.
- Also in November, Trump was hailed as the final King before the arrival of Messiah by the attendees of an Orthodox Jewish fundraising event at the Intercontinental Hotel in Manhattan. To honor the occasion, Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Jacobson recited the blessing said upon seeing a non-Jewish ruler. Trump quipped that perhaps he should take on a new role: “King of Israel”. It is believed by many Rabbis that Trump will be the final President before the return of the Davidic Dynasty and arrival of Messiah.
- Jordan is becoming increasingly hostile to Israel. In December, the Jordanian army conducted a large-scale drill simulating a war with Israel involving F-16 warplanes and helicopters. Jordan has also arrested and taken to trial Konstatin Kotov, a Russian Israeli citizen, then refused to release him even after Israel made concessions and released two Jordanians.
- Gaza continues to be a source of rocket fire into Israel. Gaza terrorists fired rockets at Sderot exactly when the Bnei Akiva children were holding an event.
- The House of Representatives approved a resolution supporting a two-state solution to the Israeli and Palestinian conflict, in direct opposition to several pro-Israeli actions by the Trump administration.
- In December Donald Trump passed an Executive Order which explicitly declared that the Jews are a nation and that any US universities or colleges that continue to support the Boycott, Divest, and Sanction movement will lose all federal funding. The order is based on the State Department’s definition of anti-Semitism which includes Demonization, Double-Standard, and Delegitimization.
- Also in December, Boris Johnson was overwhelmingly elected to be Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. His first official act was to make it illegal for UK Public Agencies to work with groups that boycott Israel.
- Russia, Iran, and Turkey have signed an agreement condemning Israel for attacking her enemies in Syria which appears to be an effort to protect Iranian forces preparing to attack Israel.
Business as Usual
Luke 17:28 – “Likewise, just as it was in the days of Lot; they were eating and drinking, buying and selling, planting and building.”
Technology continues to develop in ways that may be pointing to the nearness of the Tribulation Period:
- US central bankers have explored the possibility of developing a digital currency that would be directly available to businesses and households.
- Wal-Mart, Amazon, Target, and other major retailers are selling a new book that teaches very young children how to summon demons for worshipping, or to be possessed by said demons, titled: ‘A Children’s Book of Demons’.
- Defense manufacturers are building weapons that can think for themselves looking forward to the much desired killer robot.
- Genetically engineered designer humans could be just two years away, making their debut in 2022 According to Kevin Smith of Abertay University in Dundee, his analysis shows that “the risks of gene editing are now low enough to warrant its use with human embryos.”
Wormwood and Artificial Intelligence
Revelation 8:11 – “The name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters became wormwood, and many people died from the water, because it had been made bitter..”
Wormwood may be headed this way:
- According to NASA, Asteroid 99942 Apophis 2004 MN4 has a magnitude of 19,7000H.
- Apophis will approach the earth at a distance of only 37,725 kilometers on April 13th, 2029.
- Dr. Thomas Horn says asteroid Apophis will fulfill the Wormwood Prophecy of Revelation chapter 8 and impact Earth, not just skim by.
- The World Bank and International Monetary Fund warned that debt is growing faster and larger than at any time in the last fifty years in the emerging and developing nations.
Revelation 13:15 – “The False Prophet was allowed to put breath into the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast could even speak.”
Elon Musk speaking at MIT in 2014 called artificial intelligence (AI) our “biggest existential threat.”
- It now appears that AI is not a myth but a reality that could pass the Turing Test in 2029, making it indistinguishable from humans
- In the near future, people will continue to merge with technology. These technologies will include devices to implant artificial intelligence in brains and connect humans to wireless networks.
- Dr. Horn notes the amazing coincidence that both Apophis and AI converge at about the same time.
Matthew 24:5 – “Many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am the Christ’.”
Romans 1:25 – “They have exchanged the truth of God for falsehood, by worshipping and serving created things, rather than the Creator.”
Jude 1:4 – “Certain people . . . pervert the grace of Yahweh and deny Yeshua.”
- A controversial game, called “I Am Jesus Christ” is set to be releases and an advertisement for it has appeared on the gaming platform Steam. The game allows people to take up the role of Jesus Christ, conjure up fish from nothing, engage with a fight with the Devil, and be crucified (Matthew 24:5).
- Writer Keith Getty is warning church leaders that many modern worship songs focus on emotionalism rather than sound doctrine and Scriptural truths. This focus is “utterly dangerous” and is contributing to the “de-Christianizing of God’s people,” he says (Romans 1:25).
- Fabio Tuiach, an avowed Catholic, claims that “Jesus was not a Jew,” (Jude 1:4).
Joel 3:14 – “Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of Yahweh is near in the valley of decision.”
Zephaniah 1:14 – “The great day of Yahweh is near, it is near, and hastens greatly.”
The Israeli connections, the calls for peace and safety, the wars and rumors of wars, the many alliances that are forming just as scripture prophesied, and the denial of those scriptures tell us that the great day of Yahweh is getting really near, even at the door. It hastens forth and will not delay. We do NOT set dates, but clearly Yahweh is getting ready to change the course of human history once again. The signs are clear for those who have eyes to see and ears to hear.
