Prophecy Watch

Prophecy WatchWe are to watch and pray for the Lord’s return. We will help you do so by keeping our eyes on the signs of the times and reporting them to you. Jesus chastised the Pharisees for not knowing the signs of the times in His day. So He wants to us know the signs today, for they instill in us hope for the future and encourage us to evangelize the lost while there is still time.

Looking for Christ’s Coming

Sadly, we see this same despising attitude occurring today where pretribulationism is attacked for any number of myopic reasons. In too many cases these attacks are loaded with disinformation. We discussed this in prior essays HERE and HERE. For example, Joe Schimmel and others put together a four plus hour DVD (Left Behind or Led Astray?) attacking pretribulationism and John Darby. Jacob Prasch even referred to Darby as a cult leader. He was nothing of the kind despite the popular tendency to unfairly demonize him. I've noted before that the trailer (I haven't seen the DVD) was loaded with propaganda.

Temple Mount Turbulence

With stage-setting for fulfillment of Bible prophecy during this Church Age winding up for the final throes of satanic hatred against Jews, turbulence surrounding Mount Moriah shouldn't surprise. It comes right on schedule with things shaping up for the Gog-Magog assault foretold to come against Israel. The winds of conflict into which the seeds of Islamist rage have been sewn, nurtured by the likes of the United Nations and the international community, will soon cause the whirlwind of man's final war to be reaped.

Obama 'paving the way' for Antichrist?

"Although President Obama is certainly not the Antichrist, his policies are paving the way for the Antichrist," said pastor Robert James Jeffress, Jr., of the First Baptist Church of Dallas, Texas, Christian Today reported. "While I am not suggesting that President Obama is the Antichrist, the fact that he was able to propose such a sweeping change in God's law and still win re-election by a comfortable margin illustrates how a future world leader will be able to oppose God's laws without any repercussions."

Pope Francis: An Apocalyptic Figure?

By Jan Markell

I am cautious about "pinning the tail" on the Antichrist and the False Prophet. We cannot know ahead of time who these personalities are; however, Pope Francis comes close to "filling the bill" on the False Prophet. Or he may be but a "type" of that man just like there are many "types" of the Antichrist throughout history. I think the devil has always had a candidate for the Antichrist waiting in the wings as he doesn't know when the final generation is.

Pope Francis - The False Prophet?

For a few years, I have been reading various articles which put forth the question "Could Pope Francis be the False Prophet, spoken of in God's Word?" I would turn this over in my mind; sometimes thinking that he very well could be, but other times I just brushed it aside as a remote possibility.

I have done much research on this pope. I found that when he was Archbishop Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Buenos Aires, he had close friends who were Wiccans and pagans. He even allowed some Unitarian Universalist acquaintances to hold services in his Cathedral in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I read that Wiccans, pagans and New Agers in general, were intrigued by the man, and many truly loved him.

The Tin-Foil Hat Brigade

You know who you are. You're the person other people tip toe around when it comes to discussing current events or religion. You are the person who can spend hours devouring scripture or news with equal vigor, pointing out 'last days' events to anyone who would listen to you. You are semi-shunned at church. You are disinvited from church socials, because you are just too intense and narrow-minded. You're called a 'conspiracy theorist' or a 'Jesus Freak' behind your back. You're always going on about the Lord's return and that "Rapture thingy". Admit it. You are one of them, one of those "prophecy nuts".

My friends, when an American president is leading the world against Almighty God's chosen nation Israel and is leading an outright rebellion against America's godly founding seeking to violate the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God; be afraid be very afraid.

Well, maybe. And not because the recent decision may require God to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah. And not because I've said before that God's "red line" for America may be its national "celebration" of one of the most odious sins named in His Word.

This may help pave the way for the Antichrist because he cannot sweep to power without imperial authority or the judicial ratification of his authority. He'll have no time for confirmation of his sweeping initiatives through drawn-out legislative processes. He needs a body of authority that acts quickly. He needs an easily controlled, small body of people with the ultimate power to make laws. Laws that favor him.

Syria’s Last Legs

Jeremiah 49:23-27 could be coming into play. Jeremiah foresaw a time when the people in three Syrian cities (Damascus, Hamath and Arpad) will become confused, fainthearted and gripped with constant sorrow. The people of Damascus will become weak, turn to flee, be seized by fear, and be taken by anguish and sorrow as of a woman in travail. Her young men will fall in the streets, her troops will be cut off and fire will consume the city.

This could very well be a prelude to Isaiah chapter 17.

After Winter, Before Summer

The timing of the Rapture, also called the "blessed hope" in Titus 2:13, will be as a thief in the night to those not watching, but the "times and seasons" of the Rapture will not be a surprise to those who are looking for His return (1 Thessalonians 5:4, Matthew 25:1-13). Christ told His apostles, as recorded in Acts 1:6-7, that it was not for them "...to know the times or the seasons..." for the restoration of the kingdom to Israel. Understanding the mystery of "the times and seasons" of the kingdom's restoration was not for the apostles to know but was to be reserved for a future generation.
