...If We Do Not Give Up

“I’d just encourage people that in life you’re going to face adversity and if you persevere, you can get through that, and just never give up. You can achieve dreams and achieve goals you never thought you would be able to achieve.” -Nathan Patterson
And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.
Galations 6:9
You may not have heard about Nathan Patterson yet... but his story has been getting lots of publicity lately.  I have been struggling with what to post recently until I heard about this young man who I believe is an example and encouragement for all of us fellow Christians.

If you haven't heard his story, the following 2 minute video from ABC News is a good introduction...

Nathan made his debut last night, striking out all 3 batter's that he faced.  Initially it was reported that he pitched the elusive "Immaculate Inning" but he later said it must have been a typo.  An immaculate inning is when you strike out all three batters in exactly 9 pitches. Here is an article about Nathan's amazing debut:

My antenna's are going way up on this story and I am confident if you do some digging you will find many "God Winks" throughout.  He wears a cross, his career has risen from the dead, his first inning get reported as nearly "immaculate"... of course only Jesus can truly claim his beginning on earth as immaculate!  Nathan is also 23 years old right now... as we approach the 2 years anniversary of the Rev 12 Sign on September 23rd.

The reason I find this story so interesting is that we are like Nathan before he signed that deal.  Before he through those pitches... before striking out the side.  We are still waiting for our big break... and unlike Nathan... WE KNOW OURS IS COMING.  God has PROMISED IT!  It's called the blessed hope and it is just around the corner.
waiting for our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ,
Titus 2:13
I don't know about you, but at times it's hard to imagine being thrust into the spotlight, elevated from your "normal everyday life" into something that you have always dreamed about. One day soon we will be transformed... and things we have wondered about will be our REALITY. All those questions about what it will be like in Heaven will be answered. Wondering what Jesus looks like, or how his body feels when he pulls you in for a hug... someday soon we will know exactly how that feels.

For me, I imagine him to feel like my late Grandpa Ed. Grandpa was a farmer, skinny but tough. I remember his chest was hard and he squeezed me TIGHT. For whatever reason that's how I imagine what Jesus will feel like... but soon I won't have to imagine.... and neither will you. Just thinking about that day helps me regain focus on what really matters right now... and it's all about Him.

When I think about it, most things that concern me on a given day probably don't even matter in light of eternity... and eternity that could be just days or weeks away.  Just like Nathan, God has an amazing plan for us to elevate us at the perfect time for he perfect purpose.  Until that day comes we must actively wait with the power of the Holy Spirit.  So with that said, in light of Colossians 3:2 let us keep looking up at the stars and imagine the coming day when we will meet the one who made them all!


  1. Thanks Brad, An Interesting story on Nathan, and yes I agree his story, has many little winks for those who are looking to see them. I am sure it can be very tough to look for new subject posts to continually keep coming up. I (and I am sure there are a chorus of Amen's) really appreciate, you providing and maintaining a meeting point for us all, where we can all encourage each other, alert each other, and drag each other over the finish line. Blessings to you brother.

    1. Thanks Jordan... Blessings to you and yours my brother. I like how you said "drag each other over the finish line"... that is pretty much it! We will make it though I have no doubt. It's not if but when... : )

    2. TY Brad as always! I believe our Lord just might have an affinity for the game of Baseball because He sure has let us catch a lot of interesting "food" for thought connections through that game--especially last year--that help to keep us running toward our Home Base. There were so many "God winks" in there that it was hard to keep up. Praying for young Nathan to have a great season:-)

    3. Brad, this article you posted really comforted and exhorted me.

      When you wrote: "I don't know about you, but at times it's hard to imagine being thrust into the spotlight, elevated from your "normal everyday life" into something that you have always dreamed about. One day soon we will be transformed..." my imagination soared to what it will be like to stand before Him and receive even ONE REWARD--the Crown of Righteousness:

      Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing. - 2 Timothy 4:8 KJV

      ♥♥Thank you for helping me and all of us here look to our certain future♥♥

  2. So we have had several EQ's here in north eastern Kansas. Holton To be exact. The first was 4.2 with several aftershocks then a few days later a 4.1. I am wandering if a bigger o e is coming soon. I keep thinking of the verse I. Matt. 24 about earthquakes in various places. It is extremely uncommon to have eq's in this part of the country and in Kansas.

  3. Hey, Brad! Here is one of the "chorus of Amen's!" (Jordan above), saying thank you, thank you, thank you for all you've done over the years to post, encourage, teach, admonish (with love), shepherd, enlighten, warn, and love on all of us. We so appreciate you and prays probably go up continually from one or another of us for you, your wife, and your four little ones. God Bless you, brother. Holy hugs to you!

    I found this post very interesting and with your post Sheila, on the last thread, (I hope you can re-post here, Sheila, otherwise one of us can) I am getting a little "wired up," too! I think of what precious Alla posted about us "knowing" the day and hour of His return and I'm not sure I believe that, but I sure want to! Could this be the week? I sure hope so, but if not, September follows close behind. What a reality! Will we get a handle on it before we go? I don't think I will. So exciting. Anyhow, hopefully Nathan's cross necklace points to a true salvation for him. Praying it does. Looking up!!!

    1. Thank you sooo much Shelley. I don't know what I would do without you guys. I am SO thankful for all of you... so glad most of us have been able to stick together. I just want all to know that I read your comments throughout the day but an unable to post on my phone, so that is why some of my responses are so delayed at times. I also try to hang back and let you guys freely post without me chiming in all the time because I truly feel that this place is just as much yours as it is mine. : ) Blessings to you all!

  4. New article from Gary over at unsealed...


  5. This was really strange but an interesting thought and it came from an "unnamed" commenter whose icon had no link at all. It was from 23 hours ago @Amanda Christian's last video on the impending release of Trump's DoC peace plan. Like I said, no identifying name attached--just the blue blogger icon with this brief thought:

    "got the feeling they're waiting for the rapture to happen before releasing the peace deal."

    Kinda makes sense when you think about how they keep pushing the date forward with one excuse after the other...maybe because the "Restrainer" has just kept staying in their way? Hmmm....

    1. p.s. I don't know how that's even done because to comment normally requires one to be signed in as SOMEBODY w/the right password. If there's a trick to this I just don't know about, I'd sure like to be filled in on that one;-)

    2. Hey Sheila, Yeah I seen that comment on Amanda Christian's video.

      Link here for anyone who wants to see it:


      (4th comment from the top at the mo)

      Very odd indeed, and could well be true. Given the amount of delays and push backs that have happened to it over the past 2 years.

  6. Great anchor for a new thread, thanks, Brad. Love the countenance above the Cross, amen, he seems as proud of his Cross as his jersey, if not more so.

    Just for the record, I only grab about 60-70% of what Lu Vega comes up with although I devour the entire meal the remaining 30-40% digests over time upon revisiting details again and again. Well, he's got another up over at The Five Doves, THEDEVIL FACE OF LAODICEA; COMPARISON TO CYDONIA FACEOF MARS; http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/aug2019/luisv818.htm . Excerpt of the close as it so loudly echoes/affirms both itself and, in light of things afoot now amongst those Watching, Grace v Works, esp (emph mine, apologies Lu):

    What the Laodicean lost sight of was the ‘Face’ and headship of Christ Jesus instead. They fixed their eyes or focus on ****everything else but Jesus**** as the ultimate authority. Evidently, ****Jesus was left outside this type of Testimony**** as He was knocking and wanting to come in. Thus, Jesus invited and currently is personally inviting individuals from **out of** a such a time and **type of Congregation**. Ironically, the promise from Jesus Christ to the Overcomer is that Jesus will give him or her the right to sit on His Throne as Jesus overcame temptation, sin, the world, Satan, death and sat ‘at the Right Hand of the Majesty on high’. This is what Ala-Lu the Rebel King or better known as Lucifer is been wanting all along.

    P.S. Simply have to share a comment from a video I saw, yesterday, in re the Times of Noah and Lot. With all that Our Lord has been Revealing and Winking To Us, On Our Watch, isn't is so Wonderful that now we Noah Lot of what we didn't used to? (giggles) Maranatha!

    1. Got a kick out of that comment yesterday as well and had to share it with the family telling them if they'd pay more attention to what happened with the Flood and S & G, they'd "Noah Lot" more right now than what they do and yeah...they didn't get it, LOL. Oh well...

      TY for the heads up on Lu's article. Sounds interesting ala David Flynn. Will check it out.

    2. Jimboni, et al...Lu's article is so mind boggling and even revealing the name Laodicea itself actually meaning "Rule of the People" (rather than Jesus Christ). It was even more chilling after reading that news story yesterday regarding the Cosmic Jellyfish Image that Hubble captured which was just released on 8/12/19. It's what they call the Nebula NGC 2022, located in Orion--a glowing mass of ionized gas with a star shining brightly in it's center and per the article, located 1.8 degrees SE of the luminous class O star Meissa (Lambda Orionis) in the northern part of Orion, which made me think of that Angelic Conference Lu mentioned. Amazing stuff, for sure. Blessings and TY again for sharing:-)

    3. Sheila B., Blessings. 1) Put Tea Down; 2) Shoot lower, Sherriff, they're ridin' Shetlands! Maranatha!

    4. Hello Jimboni, Shiela and Rev12 Fam,
      Thanks Jimbo for the shout-out of the latest article of mine. I hesitated in releasing it as it is ‘out there’ :). I realize that and wanted to be sensitive to not be a stumbling-block to those Believers that may start to doubt the Biblical narrative or that may take issue with this type of research, suppositions, etc. My intent is to expose the false narratives and strengthen the Faith of Believes when ‘they show’ up and they will with their false gospel as they have always said ‘Jesus was just one of them’... no more than that.

      Nonetheless, I love the study of ancient wisdom, cultures, and architecture and how it is tied to the ancient mysteries. If reincarnation was true, I would have liked to have 9 lives as they say; I would have been an architect, rocket scientist, explorer, archeologist, astronaut, lol. I have to settle with the limitation of my old laptop but with the Mind of Christ to take me to those places, and oh boy has He to an extent. One of my Mentors once told me, ‘by knowing Jesus, we know Him who knows everything’. We can have peace about what has been, that is un-explainable, what is and will be as this world is fast approaching critical mass.

      I know this sort of subject edges on the Gap Theory, Ancient Aliens, and the like and the Enemy is way ahead with such narratives. I do believe and am convinced the Great Lie/Deception will be in part that such ‘Beings’ from such places as Mars, Venus, etc., will arrive to help the AntiChrist set up the NWO and help with the lying Signs and Wonder and how ‘Christian’ got it all ‘wrong’ and more so are and will be the AC’s #1 problem to deal with. My goodness, the level of UFO sightings are almost daily now and in broad day light as I suspect the spiritual veil is thinning. Do you all realize that Lucifer and his Fallen Angels, Demons are anxiously awaiting our departure (Apostacia) as much as we are!

    5. Hey Lu, Blessings. I was turning MANYFISH on to LA Marzulli's stuff on The Serpent Mounds, recently, as it seemed he wasn't in that particular loop deeply, yet. Your post drew attention to facts, which stand starkly in the face of probability, and then used logic and context to decode. Any Empiricist would be hard pressed to attack your fundamentals, sir, nicely done. Maranatha!

    6. Well, Lu...all I can say is at this stage of the game, they'd best all be getting their big girl pants on and realize that the Principalities and Powers have been at this a long time and they are not going to be pulling any punches once they are set loose to do their worst. Thanks be to The Lord God for those who are earnestly trying to hear His Voice over the din of demonic noise we are already living in so they can warn people of the depth of evil that is REALLY coming upon this world. I know many tender ears do not want to hear that, but as Jimboni likes to say..."Toto, we're not in Kansas anymore".
      I fully believe we are down to those last few verses in the Book of Jude and this world is about to meet up with the full impact of the final and probably most neglected Book of the Bible because it was just "too hard". Great article and graphics, Brother--for those with ears to hear. TY for sharing it:-)
      Blessings and Maranatha!

    7. Lu, I really appreciated when you wrote:

      "Do you all realize that Lucifer and his Fallen Angels, Demons are anxiously awaiting our departure (Apostacia) as much as we are!"

      Most of the Church believes 2 Thess. 2:3 means there will be an apostasia or departure of faith and not the departing of the Overcoming Church via the Resurrection/Rapture:

      Let no man deceive you by any means: for [that day shall not come], except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; - 2 Thessalonians 2:3 KJV

      HOWEVER, research shows that most earlier English versions translated he apostasia as "the depature"; as in a defined departure.

      WHAT OR WHO DEFINITELY DEPARTS is not stated in that verse but can be found within the context of the first verse.

      Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and [by] our gathering together unto him, - 2 Thessalonians 2:1 KJV

      The context is "our gathering together unto him"--in other words, THE RAPTURE--THE departure.

      Another good point someone made about "a falling away" referring to Christians leaving the faith is that there is no way of it being a definitive departure. Yes, we see many so-called Christians falling away from the faith right now, but it has been happening over a period of time. 2 Thess 2:3 is speaking of a very DEFINED EVENT--THE DEPARTURE.

      Well, I was probably "preaching to the choir" on that one, but was led to leave the comment anyway :D

    8. Thanks Lyn, It is great to have these topics discussed by the heavyweight bible scholars here, as it helps us all to learn, and understand other views on some seriously meaty doctrine.

    9. Thank you Lyn. Not preaching to the choir here. I'm working through this and your thoughts are very helpful.

    10. Hi Lyn,
      Yes, totally concur and well said and put. If the context was an 'abandoning of the Faith', that had already started since the beginning in the Churches as forewarned by the LORD. This can be seen with the Galatians, Ephesus, regarding even the warnings of the Apostle Paul of what was happening in with the Gnostic Gospels creeping in even. I do like the Geneva Bible translation myself.

      I can understand that over the centuries as this 'gathering and departure had not materialized, the mindset of those earnestly seeking and waiting lost hope or heart to a degree. As a result, the interpretation shifted as most then realized that in hindsight, it would not occur until at least nearly 2000 years later....But nonetheless, many are sensing we are that Last Generation and the Open Door is about to close due to all said convergences that did not exist then.

      If they could live in this generation, they could have only imagined what we are up against. But with each generation there has been related challenges to deal with. I think for our generation, it is the 'last lap', the conclusion, the 'summary', the last 'act', etc. So, that is exciting.

    11. ♥Thank you all for the confirmation that I was supposed to share the above♥

    12. I like the comments, Lyn, on the falling away from the faith as that happening now over a period of time versus a defining moment ... which would put to rest those views holding to a partial rapture and all of this. This also is fitting in with those the Apostle Paul was addressing that were worried they had missed the rapture because they were under persecution because they were seeing fellow believers in the faith die physically. This would seem to hold moreso true to apostasia here as a physical departure - of not just the dead in Christ but those believers who are living and breathing -before the Tribulation takes place, our Blessed Hope.

  7. Thank you Brad for posting . A TRUE view fo faith in the Lord. Lord bless each of you Keeping you all on prayer.....We are tacked daily by the enemy..yet we are more than conquerors in Christ.
    The word tells us that birth pains will increase...seeing the calamities is another Reality...for believers in Christ.. Fires in the Amazon, Canary Islands Greece , Russia, and Fire devil in Israel; Floods in Spain , Turkey ,Germany Poland US; Violence thru the nations to mark rage against God; and more too come As Chad Watch.. 88 Shadows of the tribulation Come Lord Jesus Come..

  8. Hi Guys,
    I uploaded a new video the other day if anyone wants to check it out!

    YTC: Jordan Clarke
    TITLE: "24 scriptures we can use to lead someone to salvation" (9 mins)
    LINK: https://youtu.be/OAALWQHokC0

    1. Jordan, that was some wonderful legwork and beautifully presented as usual. TY so much for making it so easy to reference and share the message of His Saving Grace like that. Love it, Brother!

    2. Ah thanks Sheila. I so appreciate how you are such an encourager to us all. You always seem to know how to respond and say the nicest things. Love you sister.

    3. Good afternoon, Jordan, and Family! And the same to you, my Irish friend:-)

      Just been sitting here musing today over the always amazing awesomeness of our Lord Jesus Christ and thinking about what might--or might not--occur on 8/23/2019 when it occurred to me that there has not been a day gone by on this Watch with all of you (that I know of) that has not in some form or fashion been a witness of our Blessed Hope to come. Even the date of a day will testify of Him in some way. So I was looking at 8/23/2019 and there is a lot there in both the Biblical use of the numbers as well as the Strong's that made my heart soar, but I will just share this one that I saw because...well...it's just so simple and beautiful:

      8+2+3+2+0+1+9=25 (and 2+5=7)

      G#25--agapao--to love, wish well to, take pleasure in, long for, the love of reason, esteem.
      used 143x in NT

      G#143--aisthanomai--to perceive, understand.
      used 1x in Luke 9:44-45 KJV in re to Jesus again predicting His death and they understood it not as it was hid from them.

      What a wondrous Gift it is that by His love and His longing, it HAS been given to all of us to perceive and understand the Miracle of our Blessed Hope:-)

      Even so, Lord, come quickly...we can hardly wait!

    4. Prayer Request:
      My father in law Dave receive some negative news on some blood work yesterday. They think it could be Prostate Cancer, but won't know for sure until next week. Dave has been a HUGE influence on me and our family, and is a very strong believer in Jesus. Please pray for him the best way you can... We owe so much to Dave and really really hope that this ends up being nothing serious, or atleast easily treatable. Will you join me in prayer? Thank you!

    5. Brad, praying with you now for Dave and entrusting him to our Lord's capable Hands!

    6. @Sheila
      Looking UP!!!

      The Lord Jesus is in CONTROL !!
      In prayer...

    7. Today, two years from the Great American Eclipse ...

      We are almost THERE!!!

    8. Praying for your father-in-law, Brad, and the whole family. May the peace that passes all understanding guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus as you await results, knowing that whatever comes, He will guide you through. Amen.

    9. Praying for your father-in-law Brad - that he receives healing, and if the sickness is being allowed for whatever reason, that this reason becomes clear, whether it is to evangelise to the person in the bed beside him, the treating physician, or whoever else's path he crosses during his treatments.

      The LORD knows our trials, he is there with us. I am sure it saddens him greatly that we have to go through these physical ailments, which is caused by the sin in the world, and the whole of creation is all groaning for God to restore all things anew. which we will all get to witness. Hallelujah!!

      Even if we cannot understand why, God can use all things to the benefit of those who love him. - Romans 8:28

    10. Brad, will gladly join you all in praying for your father in law. May Jesus' peace fill Dave's mind and heart as he waits for full results to come in. Hoping and praying for a good report.
      Blessings brother!

      "And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him."
      Colossians 3:17


    11. Amen! Praying with for your father in law, Brad!

  9. Brad, Blessings. Lifted Dave before the Throne of Grace the moment I saw your post.

    A comment over @UNSEALED ref'd an article on something which has been a bee in my spiritual bonnet for a few months, now, since it arose in comments on an earlier thread: American Pie. I simply know that I know that this tune is being whistled in the Halls of Heaven whilst they watch it line up, or so it feels. Some excerpts and a link:

    Was there any event, Biblically, which occurred precisely 2520 weeks after another event of some type? According to http://www.twenty5twenty.net, there was; in fact, it was the Writing on the Wall event featuring Belshazzar! Quoting the author in part:

    Belshazzar was mocking the God of Israel that night by partying with the implements from the Temple in Jerusalem. God had been keeping a very precise measurement of time since Nebuchadnezzar had destroyed and robbed the Temple 2520 weeks ago . . .

    From: Wednesday, May 26, 1971 American Pie recorded
    Added: 2520 weeks The Writing on the Wall
    Result: Wednesday, September 11, 2019 666 anniversary Day of Infamy

    Oh, its not a terribly long article but there's more Wonderful Winks and Nibbles to enjoy: American Pie (The Day The Music Died), 9/11, & The Writing on the Wall https://serayah515.wordpress.com/2019/08/18/american-pie-the-day-the-music-died-9-11-the-writing-on-the-wall/

    1. Wow...that was an interesting read. I don't think I ever knew about that "Babylon" song being the final cut on the American Pie album. That is so wild to look at all of those relevant numbers re the Writing on the Wall and the 2530 weeks involved. TY for sharing:-)

    2. arrgh...2520 weeks, but as an afterthought, Mclean's haunting "Aftermath" song adds to all of that with the final lines being "I know that my sweet Jesus said that he'd return, But Babylon has fallen and the cities burn".

    3. WOW, Very interesting Jimboni... So cool that Our LORD hides little signs and clues in songs and particularly one that most of the world knows. I just listened to it again, and you can feel your heart racing when you read lines like:

      "Oh, and there we were all in one place
      A generation lost in space
      With no time left to start again"

      "I saw Satan laughing with delight
      The day the music died"

      "But not a word was spoken
      The church bells all were broken
      And the three men I admire most
      The Father, Son, and the Holy Ghost
      They caught the last train for the coast"

      It will be some couple of weeks for watching.


  10. This might cause you to raise an eye brow...

    Trump re-tweeted that the "Jews saw him as the king of Israel"


    1. I got physically ill.

      Has anyone watched The Family on Netflix? I wasn't going to go there but it's kinda trippy then the Trump speech that goes hand in hand with the show. I dunno freaked me out.

    2. I have just watched 2 episodes. And of course use discernment it is on Netflix.

    3. Jordan, nolongerlukewarm, I got on the site specifically to mention this. For anyone who loves Trump, you need to be very careful to check yourself. I will not say he is the antichrist, but it is important we recognize the possibilities and implication of what is happening.

      Boastful words? Check
      Setting himself up? Check
      Calling himself the chosen one? Check
      Amassing a large following? Check
      Paving the way to globalism? possibly

      Of course there are some things that do not seem to fit, such as the fact that he is going against abortion, homosexuality, and seems to promote faith in Christ. However, "be shrewd as serpents" seems to be a relevant directive here.

      All I know is my sonar is pinging.

      We ARE close. How many times did Jesus have to tell His followers to trust what He said? This is a time to trust what He said and hang in there, joyfully expecting.

      This is an excellent time to bathe in the encouragement of 1 Thessalonians 4, and 5 as well as 2 Thessalonians 2.

      We ain't seen nothing yet, and we've seen a lot. For we have eyes to see and ears to here. We give Him all the glory for that.

      Bless you all for not sleeping, you are the best fellow insomniacs I could ask for.


    4. Amen, Miguel on the fellow insomniacs:-))
      RE the AC, we do have several good candidates, all of which meet some of the Biblical qualifiers, but I just haven't seen one yet that meets it all, so anyone of them is ofc just a guess at best. And as the BoC, that's likely all we'll get to know this side of Heaven, but here's my take on the current field:

      Trump just seems too old imo and too unpopular with the world at large and he seems to be fulfilling more of a "Cyrus" set-up role. Obama and ALL that he entails seems too Muslim orientated to ever be accepted as a Jewish messiah. Macron is a NWO wild card who has openly stated his wishes to rule like the Roman god Jupiter and does have the appropriate Jesuit, Illuminati occult background along with a possible genetic link to Antiochus Epiphanes through Ptolemy who was surnamed Macron, (Elijah & Moses YTC 12/2018--"Urgent! Kim's revelation Macron & the Macabee's!" for more on that) but he also has this wishy-washiness about him that has his French populace rioting in the streets. And then there is Jared Kushner who is Jewish, who works quietly in the background toward the division of the Land and has a serpentine feel about him. His name Jared literally means "descent or to go down from a mountain" while Kushner reminds one of being a son of Kush/Cush who was the father of Nimrod, so there's that. They all seem to be extremely wealthy individuals who would readily embrace the post and power of the AC, but perhaps there is yet another "son of perdition" out there who's mostly gone unnoticed so far, but with all of those qualifiers rolled into one and who will rear up his satanically-inspired head post-Rapture. All I know is I don't want to be here when this world begins to bow at his feet.

      Blessings and Even So, Lord, Come Quickly!

    5. A picture which was floating around in my mind, last eve, as all of the above was swirling with the likely, impending hammer time coming, with many thousands netted in sweeping expose & cleanup of very dark practices and the elites amongst us. For decency, omitting details, but, while Treason is not the most heinous offence, it is on the list. Add to this the meme that the AC will come in from the Right, seemingly, and be overwhelmingly welcomed and cheered into position by those very tails sitting in pews weekly, and it occurs to my mind. Still unsure if this happens after Harpazo, but that was what was emerging and making sense.

      So, picture this. Post Harpazo, MANY churchified folks remain, desperate for a foundation, as they are not anchored to THE Rock. Setting aside LA Marzulli's script, for a moment, imagine if a figure, not unlike The Don, proceeds to sweepingly arrest and imprison and execute thousands of current elites, including past Presidents and similar figures, while the country reels in shock and horror to see the evil perversions on all of their hands, and soundly support the effort.

      How could such evil be present and unknown so long? Wouldn't a simpler approach be so much better? (Simplicity, often, lies at the Heart of The Deal and disarms many a tactician opposed.) Let's all agree to an overarching set of principles that ALL governments must comply with in their specific laws, to clear out the confusion allowing such corruption in the past. Enter the Noahide Laws, making such sense, and the roundup begins shortly thereafter. First, they came for the pedovors, ...

    6. Agree Sheila. Thank you for your additions and clarifications.

      Hi Alla. Thank you for the amen.

      Jimboni , let that imagination run wild. You may be on to something. Pass the popcorn.

    7. Yeah all those name you listed Sheila, would be on my top of the list too.

      I kind of feel the AC will come from Europe, as Daniel Daniel chapter 9 says, the prince, who is to come, (the antichrist), will come from people who destroyed Jerusalem and the Temple ... Jerusalem was destroyed in 70 A.D. by the Romans. So I think it will be someone who comes out of a reconstituted Roman Empire ..."

      So of current politician's Emanuel Macron would seem to lead the charge, or would Putin, be the dark horse, who has been with us for decades, just waiting for his moment. But it could well be someone else lurking in the sidelines, waiting for the Rapture to occur before he slithers to the fore of politics and commands the world stage. I am glad we won't be around to find out who it is.

      Just putting it here to help those coming behind us to help identify who it actually turns out to be...

      Intelligent: Revelation 13:18; Daniel 7:8
      Charismatic Speaker: Daniel 7:8 Revelation 13:5
      Crafty Politician: Daniel 9:27; Revelation 17:12, 13, 17
      Distinct Physical Appearance: Daniel 7:20
      Military Genius: Revelation 4; 17:14; 19:19
      Economic Genius: Daniel 11:38
      Blasphemer: Revelation 13:6
      Utterly Lawless: 2 Thessalonians 2:8
      Selfish, Ambitious Egomaniac: Daniel 11:36, 37; 2 Thessalonians 2:4
      Greedy Materialist: Daniel 11:38

    8. Jordan, tell me how you personally reconcile
      2 Thessalonians 2:3 with your statement of " I am glad we won't be around to find out who it is."

      And then I will tell you what I think.

    9. Hi Miguel,
      Yeah I have to admit, I did have questions of my own about that verse (2 Thessalonians 2:3) , being a contradiction to: (2 Thessalonians 2:7), and I was reading a lot about it, The best reconciliation I can make on it, is "The Falling Away" is from the Greek word "apostasia" And apostasia can mean, "apostasy" - i.e. turning from God, "departure", a simple departure, i.e. no longer there, it could be a physical departure or a spiritual departure from the faith, and also it mean's a "falling away."

      My take on it, (because Paul taught a pre-trib Rapture, as verified in verse 7-8 where we are told that he that now let's, shall let, until he has been taken out of the way, and then the man of sin shall be revealed) is that it mean's "the day of the revealing of the Anti-Christ, cannot come unless the church's departure comes 1st, and then he will be revealed.

      But I have to admit, it is a confusing set of verses, so close to each other.

      Side note on my logic:
      The word "Repent" in the bible, has come to mean "Turn from sins" - i.e. "Repent and be ye saved", people take this to mean, repent of your sins, and be saved. well in actual fact, it means, to "change your mind" , God repented several times in the bible, He obviously didn't repent of sin, he simply changed his mind, so When we see "Repent in the bible, and be saved" , I believe this is telling us to turn from our non-belief, and believe that Jesus is the Messiah, and be saved.

      The word "apostasy" in the bible has come to mean, "Turning your back on God", but I think it's original intended meaning in Paul's letters to the Thessalonians was referring simply to the Departure of the Church.

      Isn't it peculiar that 2 really important words about "salvation" and the "rapture", have had their meanings obscured over time!

      2 Thessalonians 2:3-8
      2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. 3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. 8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

    10. Actually Miguel,
      Can I have a 2nd attempt at that answer if you don't mind..

      As I said before, the apparent conflict between 2 Thessalonians 2:3 & 2 Thessalonians 2:7-8 did bother me, and I even posed the question about it either here or over at unsealed about a year ago.

      Sometimes, we believe a certain doctrine, because it seems to be backed up by scripture, and it seems to make sense, and it sits right, you feel like, "Yep, that is the truth", then some times, someone shows you another verse, that apparently contradicts that doctrine, but yet you know, that their position on that issues is wrong... The truth just sits well on you.

      For Example:
      I believe in a Young Earth
      I believe the earth is a Sphere (Ball Shape)
      I believe in a Pre-Trib Rapture
      I believe that none of the seals have opened yet
      I believe in Once Saved Always Saved / Eternal Security
      I believe that repenting in the bible, means "change your mind" not "turn from sins"
      I believe it will be a 7 year Trib (not a 3.5 year) or less as some teach
      I believe that we won't definitively know who the Anti Christ will be, as we will be gone before he is revealed.

      Are there verses in the bible, that make me scratch my head, and think yeah, but that seems to contradict, this scripture. I cannot always make sense of it. But I just reconcile, and think, Yeah, but the bible doesn't contradict it self, it is my understanding that is off. So I Take the verse, that is super clear, or I pray for clarity, and then I usually have a peace about it. I then put the apparent conflicting verse to the back of my mind, and just think, "OK, I dont fully understand it yet, but I will in the future"

      So after I posted the last comment, I felt, yeah, but "APOSTASY" means "apostasy", "falling away", "leaving the faith" and is it just word manipulation to make apostasy mean "departure", and make that "departure" be the departure of the Church. I got that position from Chuck Missler & Jack Kelley.

      (Part 1 of 2)

    11. This comment has been removed by the author.

    12. So I have been doing a lot of study today, and wading through so many of the true and false and contradictory teachings on 2 Thes 2:3 is really tiring.

      In the last message I said It sat better with me, that the Day of Christ is the 7 Year Trib period. However, It looks like there is a difference between the "Day of CHRIST" and the "Day of The LORD"

      Day of Christ appears to be = The Rapture
      Day of the LORD appears to be = Tribulation period / The 2nd coming.

      So I still, believe we won't know who the A/C will be, as we will be gone before he is revealed as per 2 Thessalonians 2:7-8 but at this moment in time, I cannot come up with a clear / indisputable reason why 2 Thessalonians 2:3 appears to contradict it. Further study needed.

      Maybe Good ole Chuck Missler & Jack Kelley & Our dear sister Lynn are correct, that Apostasy mean's to "Depart" in the Clouds with Our LORD.

      Feel free to chip in with your 2 cents.

    13. Excellent Jordan and others for your thoughts on this topic. Sorry I have been too tied up or away from internet service to answer. I'll give a little now, but hopefully later when I can sit with a laptop, I can add more.

      Basically, I think the verse undicates that a return of Christ happens only after a departure and a revealing of the man of lawlessness. But I agree that unpacking that can get interesting for three reasons:

      What departure?
      What revealing?
      What return of Christ/day of the Lord?

      For me, I have never really subscribed to the man of lawlessness being revealed as the same thing as the abomination or some other mid trib late trib event. It just says revealed... for a watcher, who is paying attention, we are going to know before others know. And in my opinion, we will know before the rapture, which I believe is pretrib.

      To be continued

    14. Hey guys, I had no idea you were discussing 2 Thess. 2:3 when I wrote the above--or did my comment open the door for discussion? I was simply led by the Spirit to share what I had learned. Jordan, I very much appreciate your humble attitude and I hope my attitude comes across with humility as well for we are all continuing to learn EVERY DAY! You make some very good observations. Miguel P, your determination to understand the Truth is admirable as well. Just wanted to send you guys some love in Christ!

    15. Hi Lyn,
      That was a interesting coincidence that you chipped in with a comment on 2 Thess. 2:3 when unbeknownst to you, myself and Miguel were exploring the topic.

      I have to say, it seems to be one of the toughest passages to reconcile with it's on the surface contradictory verse of: 2 Thess. 2:7-8.

      There are so many theories on it.. But I think I will have to stick with your view (And the generally favored view in the Pre-Trib camp I think). As it seems to be the one that makes the most sense, especially as many of the versions of the bible prior to KJV 1611 translated the Greek word "apostasia" as DEPARTURE, including the Geneva Bible from 1599. It was only after the KJV 1611 bible, that put apostasia as "Falling Away" that the modern translation's followed suit and started using similar terms, like "Rebellion", "Falling Away" & "Revolt."

      There was a good video on it from Andy Woods

      interpretting that apostasia means "Physical Departure" over a "Spiritual Falling Away" may be completely wrong, and maybe like Miguel said, maybe it is talking about the current apostasy that we see happening, and we will end up seeing the Anti-Christ being revealed, confirmed, and then immediately we will be RAPTURED, I really don't know for sure. I know Robert Breaker holds the view that we will see the AC being revealed. And Chuck Missler and John Kelley and many others held the view that we wouldn't see him being revealed.

      But anyhow, It was a very interesting study.

    16. I thought it would be useful to list all the points proving that the DEPARTURE occurs prior to the Anti-Christ being revealed that Andy Woods mentioned in his video :

      There was a good video on it from Andy Woods

      Here were his 10 main reasons for believing the Harpazo is before the Man of Sin is revealed:
      He noted that each one individually doesn't prove the case for a rapture prior to AC being revealed, but 10 of them together makes a strong case for it.

      #1 There have always been "departing from the faith" - How would one before the rapture, be counted as significant, unless the departure he was referring to was Our Physical Departure.

      #2 Both letters to Thessalonian's were written early in his ministry circa 51AD - So the topic of apostasy in the Church, and falling away from the faith were not hot topics that he would have been concerned about at that stage. Unless the departure he was referring to was Our Physical Departure.

      #3 The definite article was used, i.e: it said "THE" Apostasia.
      It wasn't referred to " 'A' Apostasia", it was referred to as " 'THE' Apostasia" So this is a definite identifiable departure. Perhaps he was referring to was Our Physical Departure.

      #4 The Greek Noun "Apostasia" according to Liddell & Scott a Greek/English Lexicon can refer to a PHYSICAL DEPARTURE, here are their translations for the word "Apostasia": "Rebellion Against God", "Apostasy", "Departure", "Disappearance", "Distance"

      [Some words can be both a noun & a verb, example, Google is a noun, ie. the name of a company. But if I say, Can you Google "Apostasia" and now google becomes a verb, i.e an action. The Same with Apostasia, it can be expressed as a noun, or a verb...]

      #5 The Greek Verb "Aphistemi" can also mean a Physical Departure,
      "Aphistemi" has been used 15 times the New Testament.
      3 times referring to a spiritual departure: Luke 8:13, 1 Tim 4:1, Heb 3:12
      12 times referring to a PHYSICAL DEPARTURE: Luke 2:37, Luke 4:13, Luke 13:27, Acts 5:38, Acts 12:10, Acts 15:38, Acts 19:9, 2 Cor 12:8, (8 examples were only given here)

      #6 Extended Context Favors a PHYSICAL DEPARTURE i.e. every chapter ends with some ref to Jesus's 2nd Advent: 1 Thess. 1:10, 1 Thess. 2:19, 1 Thess. 3:13, 1 Thess. 4:17-18, 1 Thess. 5:23, 2 Thess. 1:10, 2 Thess. 3:5, Wouldnt it be reasonable to assume that 2 Thess. 2 would also be talking about Jesus's 2nd advent .i.e OUR PHYSICAL DEPARTURE to meet him in the air?

      #7 The immediate context Favors a PHYSICAL DEPARTURE i.e: In 2 Thess. 2:1-2, he is talking about us being gathered to him, i.e. the Rapture, and in 2 Thess. 2:7-8, we are told that Once the retrainer is removed, the man of lawlessness will be revealed, so it makes sense, that in verse 2 Thess. 2:1-2 that he would be talking about A PHYSICAL DEPARTURE.

      #8 2 Thess. 2 is a review course, i.e. it is his 2nd letter to them, it is not new information, he says things like "Remember I told you, when I was with you", he had already discussed the rapture with them.

      #9 Most of The early bible translations prior to KJV 1611, such as Geneva 1599 favored to translate Apostasia as "DEPARTURE" (see video above @ 40:29 mark for list)

      #10 Many great and well know bible scholars, modern and historic, believe that The Rapture occurs before the revealing of the antichrist. (see video above @ 42:51 mark for list)

      Hopefully this is useful to someone. I might make a short video on it in the coming days, as I found it very interesting to research.

    17. **Correction**


    18. Jordan--Awesome compilation! As I was reading it, I remembered how there are MILITARY connotations to the Rapture. In one of my articles, I shared "the last trump" also can refer to a military signal (https://lynmelvin.blogspot.com/2019/05/the-rapture-mystery.html).

      Chuck Missler wrote:

      Chapter 2 is the heart of this epistle. It is one of the most important prophetic passages in the New Testament. It deals with an eschatological error from the belief that the Day of the Lord was already present and many other aspects of the Great Tribulation. Paul warns them (and us, too) against deception. Two events must occur before . Two verbs, emphatic by position, serve to distinguish the two events.

      First: an apostasia ; falling away; the deliberate abandonment of a formerly professed position or view; a defection; a rejection of a former allegiance.9 The word was used to denote a political or military rebellion. 10 In the Septuagint, it is used to describe a rebellion against God.

      Second: the "Restrainer" had to be removed. A key issue is the identity of "the Restrainer." A careful exegesis of the Greek text makes it clear that Paul was referring to the Holy Spirit as He indwells the believer in this unique period we call "the Church."
      [Source: http://www.khouse.org/articles/2002/403/]

      Chuck doesn't share the DEPARTURE view in this short article (perhaps he does in the teaching he refers to available on MP3), but this military rebellion definition makes me think of how Michael will be casting Satan and his angels out of heaven just prior to the Man Child being caught up.

      "Revelation 12:3-5 tells of the coming displacement of Satan and his horde. This will be a major part of a great deception (2 Thessalonians 2:7-11) since these fallen angels will masquerade as supposed friendly alien ancestors or superior beings.

      This may occur almost simultaneously with the birth of the man child (i.e., the rapture of the Overcomers). As Lucifer’s angels fall. . .

      And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth

      . . . the transformed sons of God will be raptured or harpazo-ed to Heaven:

      And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up [harpazo] unto God, and [to] his throne."
      [Excerpt from: https://lynmelvin.blogspot.com/2019/06/our-last-day-behold-great-red-dragon.html]

      Well, now we have even MORE to chew on :O

    19. Howdy, Lyn and Fam, Blessings. Now wait just a moment before hitchin' yer pony up here and declaring a frame to the hunt. My thoughts are that you've just cracked the lid on the chase scene and want to cut to commercial already. I've not gone Chuck Missler on this one but am confident it will suffer the journey, esp in light of His Winks and Words to us along the way on this.

      One idea surfacing a bit, on threads here?, idr, was that the Enemy is awaiting Harpazo to act, and everything is simply preparing with the full knowledge that the whole Megillah must follow that. So, every time we get all worked up over a date Clearly Shown as Moed and Unveiling, there is no big 'event' showing a shift from Subtleties to Suddenlies; we aren't there, yet. (In the company of Peter, I keep missing this one, sorry.)

      My idea is that in his classic M.O. as Trickster and Wielder of FA Tech, the Enemy not only has plans to respond and deceive, but also to 'intercept the pass', recall? Preparing to launch FA Tech bridging worlds/dimensions so effectively as to re-write the DNA of one's eternal soul, ala MoB, the plan is to use the same forbidden crossing of Estates to meta*physically "grab' the souls of the BoC, ALL OF THEM. This is the Foundation undergirding Our Lord's Declaration That we specifically would not be *Harpazo*, out of His Hand, Once There.

      When one considers that, in this model, likely 1/3 of the Heavenly Host Are Cast Down, Replaced, To The Being, By Believers In Christ; those same Believers Are Transformed To The Full Likeness Of Christ, and ALL Else attendant this Moment, and the time in which it occurs is that unit of 'time' which cannot be divided any further: atamos, as arisen here, recently, How Awesome And Wonderful Is Or Lord amen.

    20. How Awesome And Wonderful Is Our Lord! Worth repeating to correct, amen

    21. Hi Miguel,
      So I think after looking at 2 Thess. 2:3 & 2 Thess. 2:7-8 for almost 4 days now, and trying to understand it properly, (Do I even still understand it properly?)

      I think, you might be right about the body of Christ seeing the Anti-Christ being revealed just prior to the Rapture occuring.

      I made a video about it in case anyone wants to view it?

      CHANNEL: Jordan Clarke
      LINK: https://youtu.be/u9vyjjdng9g
      LENGTH: (14 mins)

    22. Part 1

      Jordan, thanks for riding this one out with me. I know Greg Lauer at alittlestrength.com has a really good analysis of the passage as well, but I cannot seem to find it. Perhaps someone can find that and link it for us.

      I watched your video a couple times and it helped me to deconstruct and reconstruct the passage a little better. Here are my thoughts:

      The distinction between day of the Lord and day of Christ is not in the original wording. In fact, the word used is kyrios, G2962. It means Lord or Superior. This is the word used in all the new testament verses that you discussed. But I would agree that context could indicate a distinction. Sometimes the day of kyrios is negative and sometimes it is positive. When positive, it could be understood as rapture, when negative, it could be understood as time of wrath/tribulation. I think the translators say day of Christ sometimes and day of the Lord at other times because they probably had the same understanding as you pointed out.

      There is a word used in verse 2 that seems to clarify the meaning. This word "enistemi" G1764 which is translated as "has come" means "is upon us" and does not seem to mean "has come and gone" as we might infer in english. So if verse 2 is talking about the rapture, it would not make sense.

      I will break it down verse by verse:

      VERSE 1: Concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered to him, we ask you, brothers and sisters, (this is very clearly talking about Christians being gathered with Christ. The greek word used for gathered carries the meaning of complete, as in ALL of us dead and alive, so makes sense to me that it would be the rapture).

      VERSE 2: not to become easily unsettled or alarmed by the teaching allegedly from us—whether by a prophecy or by word of mouth or by letter—asserting that the day of the Lord has already come [and is upon us now]. ( my addition in brackets based original greek usage. How could day of the Lord be the rapture if we know they are unsettled about it and it is upon them now? Not possible, this verse must be talking about tribulation. In which case they are unsettled for two reasons: one, they are not gathered yet, and two, they are now in a time of tribulation. They would know that day of the Lord meant time of tribulation based on old testament and new testament scriptures. Some of those verses you cited in your video.

      VERSE 3: Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. ( so then, this verse is saying there is no way you've missed the rapture and are now in a time of unprecedented tribulation unless you have conclusively seen (the word revealed is G601 "apokalypto" which means unveiled and uncovered and fully exposed) the man of lawlessness and APOSTASY. This begs the questions: how will we conclusively see man of lawlessness such that there is no longer any room for speculation and what is the apostasy? Based on context, the only possibility here is that man of lawlessness has made it obvious who he is by some abomination and the apostasy could be the rapture but I am not sure entirely. Either way the apostasy will be something very obvious and undeniable, so that is what makes me lean towards it being the rapture. )

      I believe verse 7 must be an implication of the rapture as well since nothing else really makes much since. But I have not had time to pick that verse apart like I did the others above.

    23. Part 2

      So why is 2 thessalonians so difficult to understand and why are there so many interpretations? First I think it is because it is talking about things that happen at a very pivotal time in human history, in which case, being overly clear might be counterproductive. Second because I think there is a message built in for those people whom the writer is not initially speaking to, that is after crap hits the fan there may be some wondering and looking for answers. this is the passage that will solidify their understanding of what happens next. Lastly because I truly believe it is good to see the various nuances. I mean as long as the interpretation is not counter to the rest of scripture, it is a reasonable interpretation.

      Do I still think it says the man of lawlessness will be known by true Christians before the rapture and that there will be a falling away of the Christians beforehand? yes and no. Not technically, but it does read that way in most translations and I believe if God didnt want it to read that way, He would have made sure it did not. In other words, I am ok with the multiple layers of meaning in the passage and believe they are part of His divine brilliance.

      Hope this is useful. Note: all of the above is based on my limited understanding of the greek and my ability to dig around in blueletterbible.org. I hope you will continue to help me understand these thing. I really enjoy your videos Jordan. Keep up the good work. I know He is pleased.

    24. This comment has been removed by the author.

    25. Hi Miguel,
      I really enjoyed your commentary, and analysis of 2 Thess. 2 WOW. you have an amazing mind brother. I wish I had even half the marbles up there, that you have.

      It is a very interesting passage, and I do agree, the apparent contradiction between verse 3 & verse 7-8 might well be a layered meaning for the waiting watching church and for the ones left behind. The great thing about being right or being wrong about it is, it is not a salvation issues. We are saved by Grace, through faith, not of ourselves. And we are not appointed to Wrath. The passage is not teaching about salvation. So I find it so edifying to read your analysis of it. Great job on the Greek look-ups. From what you discovered, it is possible that "The Day of Christ" & "Day of The LORD" are interchangeable, and can both mean the "Day of the Rapture" & "The Time of the Tribulation". And then "Apostasia" being "The Departure" makes sense.

      Only time will tell. And I believe time will tell us very soon. Blessings to you Miguel, thanks for giving me a meaty subject to study.

    26. I think this might be the link you were referring to Miguel on Greg's site:


      In case anyone wants to check out Greg's take on it.

    27. Thank you for the amazing mind comment. I'm impressed you could follow my ramblings. You clearly have an amazing mind as well.

      The article you linked from Greg is awesome and he does seem to have come to the same conclusions, but there is yet another one from him that I was thinking of.

      I'll keep looking.

      And I'll keep looking up!

    28. Hi Miguel,
      The only other ref on Greg's site with 2 Thessalonians 2:3 is this one:


      I found a good little trick on Google to search for something, If you know the site it is on, and some key words, but both into Google, surrounded by quotation marks " " separating the search terms with an ampersand (&)

      "alittlestrength.com" & "2 Thessalonians 2:3"

      It helps to filter out the noise on a search.

      You prob knew that anyway.

      I wish I had an amazing mind, I feel like a knuckle dragging cave-man when I see the analysis, and research that many of you guys can do here. and I am generally in awe of what you guys bring to the table.

      "Knuckle Dragging Cave-Man" - I am sure that is a satanic image concocted to make the populace believe in the evolution theory... I am pretty sure, that Adam, was probably a super fine specimen of a man (thinking an Adonis) with way superior brain capacity to what we have these days.. He was God's 1st attempt at man, and God doesn't create half heartedly, he creates perfection, and also didn't Adam, name all the animals in the world? Not an easy task, there would have been 100's of 1000's of specimens if not even millions to name!!

  11. So, remember when *22 folks died, when a bomber, *22 years of age, hit an *Ariana Grande concert on 5/*22/17, at *22:31 local time, resulting in 23 total fatalities, including the bomber?

    Well, *823 days later (!), tomorrow, on *8/23, *Ariana Grande, who's image is *upside down on the concert poster, performs at the Manchester *Pride event. The date on the Hebrew calendar? 5/*22 !!! Really. TY MANYFISH https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vDWrlsQ6H-w

    1. Hi Jimboni,
      That is bizarre indeed about the Adriana Grande 2nd Manchester Concert on 8/23 which is exactly 823 days after her 1st one. Hard to know what all that can mean, but it has to mean something satanic, the way those numbers repeat, you can see it is orchestrated.

      The poor world.. A trap is being set for them, and it will spring closed like a bear trap, and they will find themselves caught in it's teeth, with no escape, they will only know, the world has suddenly gone into Chaos, and probably a few Christian's that they know have suddenly disappeared, and then they have to deal with the Great deception, bringing them further from the truth. I am sure at the same time, there will be a massive purge of relevant, honest, digital information from YouTube and The WEB that would steer them back towards the truth.

      I just shudder everytime I think about what they will be facing. Prayers for all of your lost family and friends, that they wake up soon, and manage to board the ark before the doors shut.

    2. If it weren't for our being in Christ and He in us, I believe the mere knowledge of these things would drive the average person insane. Kinda gives me some empathy for those who clamp their hands over their ears and refuse to even look at any of it. But for an understanding of the spiritual warfare at work and the depth of evil as revealed and warned of throughout the Scriptures, the sheer evil genius of it all would just be beyond normal human comprehension.
      Praise our Lord God not only for the ability to see it and understand it, but for the promise of Eternal Protection that He has provided for all who will receive the Gift of Faith in Jesus Christ.

  12. OK, welcome back to the Jimboni Hour, with our eloquent host, JIMBONI! Whataveugotforus THIS time, Jimboni?

    Well, Ed, so glad you asked. In light of CMs video within the hour, as icing on the 7x7 Menorah Cake, I would be remiss not to pass along that there is a very significant possibility of an EMP in a NA town, likely a coastal one, with the next 24 hours. Duck and cover and pray, pray, pray.

    1. Ed, I am trying to answer but my buzzer was disconnected:

      A: What about the Army (crowd control) exercises coming to all over NC later this month?

  13. This is got to be the most busy week and watch period I can remember. It keeps on pouring in..

    I did not know the moon as been "reddish" all week and then there is no moon on 8/23. There is also a connection from R12 which I have mentioned before, Many connections (all the moon signs we've been watching) within this YTV from Patrick and his wife.

    8/23 the Moon Shall Not Give Her Light - 7 Days After Tu B'Av & Blood Moons - 1,335 days to Hybrid
    From Rapture Signs & Epiphanies

    Wow wow wow...

    See you soon family..

    1. Hmmm, Charlie...that seems to be some confirmation for the direction of my 8/18 thoughts on the prior thread re the 1335 days and the Hybrid Solar Eclipse occurring on 4/19-20/2023 over the Australia/NZ zone plus a whole lot more. I didn't realize @Rapture Awareness had changed their channel name. Haven't watched them in awhile. TY for sharing:-)

    2. There are lots of connections for sure.

      I was unaware of their rebranding initiative as well, me thinks too many people booed them for the markers going by and not being met...aka, the high watch periods coming and going without major major fanfare. However, their latest connects many of our high(er) watch times.

      Today/this weekend is another... If you have heard anything from Steve Fletcher to Ministry Revealed to Many Fish to Exalted Lamb 1.... 623/823 and knowing the calendars are off by 13 days so we might just now be arriving on 9th of Av (Julian calendar, used before Gregorian took over).

      The '23' symbolism used by 'them' etc....

  14. They Speak in Signs: Steven Furtick (Elevation Church) and Carl Lentz (Hillsong)
    From Jeremiah Cohen
    20min - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J2LBfIMfSVI

    Summary: That hidden hand is behind many of our false teachers and ministries in the world. The war is in the heavenlies and is with the devil. His servants occupy flesh. If Christians knew better their sign language we would be better prepared in times such as this. Let those with eyes, see. Ears, hear.

    1. If you have watched any of Jeremiah Cohen's work (Josh Sparrow too), there is plenty of evidence from Michael w Smith, Chris Tomlin, Hillsong, Bethel, and Elevation worship teams as to 'who' they really follow/worship/fear and it ain't Jesus Christ. Throw Toby Mac, Lauren Daigle, LaCre in there as well...only looking on the outer shell with these names, but scary to think how deep it goes.

      I just don't watch any TV or listen to any radio, period.

    2. "Symbolism will be their undoing" -- Q

  15. I haven't watched CM's latest yet. We had "Meet the Teacher" night and dinner out afterwards, so got home late, but wanted to share this before I do watch it. Last night as I was trying to go to sleep in a dark room with my eyes closed, I kept seeing what looked like waves of darkness rolling in and spreading out, like black clouds that were out to cover one place after another. It was so strange and then I woke up this morning from this dream:

    I was driving in the car on this amazingly straight and seemingly never-ending road passing cleanly through one intersection after another. All stop signs were for the adjoining roads and all I knew was that I had to keep going until the road ran out. I finally saw a stop sign facing me several more intersections up ahead where the road looked to dead-end at a major highway of some kind, but I didn't see any traffic going by. It seemed like I was never gonna get there so I tried to speed up, but the car wouldn't go any faster than the speed limit--which for some reason I felt like was 45 mph. After what seemed like forever, I eventually reached the sign and stopped the car.

    I looked out across the empty multi-lane highway and saw this dangerous looking fast moving River full of big rocks and flowing past a high canyon wall on the far side. Several groups of people were frantically trying to paddle canoes upriver. A man fell into the water and from somewhere another man ran into the scene and jumped in to save the guy, but he just got angry about it and fought the would be rescuer off who finally gave up and was swimming back toward shore.Then I realized the drive I had just made was 41 miles long and I needed to get where I was going, so I was turning out onto the highway to get to a really big and important meeting that was about to take place when I woke up.

    G#45--agkuro--an anchor 4x:
    Acts 27:29-30 KJV re the casting of 4 anchors to prevent the ship from falling upon the rocks
    Acts 27:40 KJV re the commitment to get to shore
    Heb.6:19 KJV re the anchor of our hope being in the certainty of God's promise.

    G#41--hagiotes--sanctity, holiness as an abstract quality 1x:
    Heb.12:10 KJV re perseverance through chastening--of those who do it to us for their own pleasure as well as that of our Father who lovingly performs it all for our good as He keeps us.

    I feel like all of those intersections symbolize the many high watch days come and gone, but having persevered through all (incl. the scoffing and mocking from the sidelines) according to the pace of His timing, the end of our journey in this world is in sight. The River scene I'm thinking represents those who've angrily refused to accept the Gospel of His Saving Grace through Faith in Him alone insisting that we must add our own good works for Salvation even as they, themselves, are drowning in uncertainty. And that Big Important Meeting--almost there:-)

    Blessings and Maranatha!!!

    1. On the flip side, my attention this morning was drawn to the "45th" G7 Summit that begins tomorrow thru the 26th Aug in Biarritz, France and is being referred to by MSM as having the potential for a "dysfunctional family reunion". Macron has even called it pointless and indeed the list of issues going in is a hodgepodge of a world in utter chaos. Trump is said to be most looking forward to a meeting with the new UK PM Boris Johnson to discuss the virtues of BREXIT, which I am sure is much to the EU's normal chagrin with our unpredictable "45th" President.

      I'm with Gary @unsealed and just praying for our CHEXIT--a reunion that will be a perfectly FUNCTIONAL family celebration with our Lord and Savior!

      In looking at the Hebrew Letters this morning in re to the 45 mph and 41 miles given in the dream, I found some more sweet encouragement.
      40 and 5=the Mem and the Hei. The Mem=water and the Hei=window and in the dream I was looking out at the river through my windshield/window.
      40 and 1=Mem and the Aleph. The Mem=Water and the Aleph=Ox suggesting to me that He has brought us safe thus far to the end of this road through the gift of His Living Water, the Holy Spirit. (John 4:10; John 7:37-39; Eph.1:13-14) and also reminded me of a prior dream about having our heart etched on the shoulder of an Ox i.e. no matter what..."He's got this!"

  16. Famous Christian departees have LOST their sense of TRUTH (emph mine)

    From the Washington Examiner (found on Rapture Ready)

    Summary: The evangelical world has been rocked with the recent news of several prominent Christians who are suddenly and very publicly abandoning their faith. Marty Sampson, a Christian music artist, wrote that he believes Christianity is “just another religion.” Weeks earlier, Joshua Harris, known for his books on dating and sexual purity, posted on Instagram that he had undergone a “massive shift in regard to my faith” and declared he is no longer a Christian.

    In the midst of these few who are publicly abandoning their faith, there remain countless people across the world and throughout history who have been through the crucible, who have been tested by the fires of the culture and the difficulties of life, and have come forth professing the truth of Christianity — not as a religion or set of rules to follow to live one’s best life, but as a comprehensive explanation for the reality that we as human beings share in common and experience.

  17. Check out this local news.


    1. nolongerlukewarm...wow...again? This cattle mutilating phenomena is so creepy and in over 40 years of it happening off and on, govt. investigations have never revealed a remotely plausible explanation for it. I'll bet they actually do know, though, and before long the truth of these cruel and disgusting acts will be revealed. But any way you look at this, it is ritualistic in nature...and maybe experimental as well and whoever or whatever is behind it is monstrous in nature.
      TY for the heads up on yet another sign of this season we are in. Blessings and Maranatha!

  18. Hi Fam! Found a very interesting by Brother Sean, really – Global SITREP C8-19: Crisis Points
    "… Never before have I seen in my lifetime the things which have occurred in the past month. Surely the spirit of the antichrist has gone into overdrive of late, it is so blatant, so in our face, that there may be some feeling like the Corinthians did when Paul addressed them in his second letter. … I think we all agree that in a post-Harpazo America the very perception safety and security would rapidly go right out the window. … Meanwhile, across the oceans there are strong indications that the prophetic Psalm 83 scenario is very close at hand. Violence is very likely to begin within hours on the Gaza front, and Palestinian Islamic Jihad announced this week that they are at war with Israel.…"
    Now we are really very near to our home forever! Maranatha!

    1. This is well put: the harpazo is & will be another witness...


      Will be a proof of the Bible...


      It will prove our faithfulness (not the fairweather flakes) to Him in this evil place...

    3. Alla and Charlie...TY for sharing. Great article by Sean and really enjoyed the video by Steve Sewell, esp as he pointed out why so many are being led to speak the Gospel of Christ so fervently now as we are seeing the apostasy reach a crescendo with His Grace so despised as the light dims just before it is completely removed. Blessings:-)

    1. Thank you Charlie for your watchfulness and sharing! Blessing! Making thoughts really!

    2. @Barry Scarbrough has an interesting take on the Dow drop of 623 yesterday and what it indiicated to him. Worth a watch at 12 min.

    3. The G7 Summit is in major upset over the unexpected changing priority of the Amazon fires and garnering an emergency response to that crisis. I don't know how many people realize that what are considered as the 2 "lungs" of the world's oxygen supply in Brazil and Siberia are suffering from unprecedented fires with both burning on a staggering scale that's enveloping neighboring cities and countries choking them on the smoke and ashes and even blocking out the sunlight. Joel 2:30 comes to mind as "a world in chaos" is not an overstatement anymore.
      Blessings and Maranatha!

    4. Definite foreshadowing of what Isaiah said in Isa. 24:17-20.

    5. Dinesh D’Souza tweeted today that the Amazon fire pics are from previous fires going back as far as 2000. Coincidentally, I just read that “hockey stick” charlatan Michael Mann lost his libel case against Tim Ball and has to pay his legal fees ! The reason ? He refused the Judge’s order to show his graphs, etc proving climate change. So, whatever hysteria they at G7 or wherever are trying to raise over climate change just took two blows to the body.

    6. This is great news Archangel. Awesome.

      For our Sunday morning sing-along: Peace in the Valley...from EAP, one of his best...INMHO


    7. Wow. I agree with your humble opinion, Charlie. What a beautiful song. Made me really, really, really homesick for that valley. Lord, please come soon. Thanks for posting, brother.

    8. J.D. Farag’s 11 yr-old daughter makes me cry like an infant with her rendition of “How Great Thou Art”. Such a beautiful child. His whole family is. Even J.D. says it makes his mascara run every time. Gotta get water-proof !

    9. Just FYI, I’ve seen mention of Jeremiah Coen’s videos. He made one called Elvis and the Occult; Climbing the Stairway to Heaven. Sorry couldn’t provide the link but it’s easy to find by searching it with aforementioned info. Shocked me too.

  20. Anyone see this story and want to help decode? https://www.ctvnews.ca/mobile/world/texas-newlyweds-killed-in-crash-minutes-after-their-marriage-1.4564115

    What I see- minutes after our rapture (wedding), which takes place in 2019 (19 & 20-ages), the red (Bordeaux) horse (Morgan) will arrive. The red horse is the horse of war.
    Any other dates or numbers standing out?

    1. *facepalm

      Just watched the video blatant double 329 in almost every single shot overtop of the image.


    2. And then the numbers in the video reset and were double 666. Wow! Wow!

      They give a date of Dec 20 in the video as well.

    3. This comment has been removed by the author.

    4. Looks like IDF struck Iranian targets near Damascus overnight to prevent a killer drone attack from Iran in Northern Israel.


    5. So busy day and last few days. The 329 and the 666 showed up on the video as kind of a glitch but that doesn't mean that I didn't see them and that it didn't prompt me to actually share the article with my findings to my friends on Facebook warning them that time is running out. I don't post to Facebook often, because I live in a smaller community and many of my Facebook friends are not Christians.
      In seeing those numbers I decided to share. After I figured out the glitch was just a glitch on my mobile screen, I pointed that out to Facebook but didn't have time to come here and update.

      It was a beautiful Sunday and my two children had decided to be baptized. (8 and 13)My daughter sung with the worship team and my son helped with getting the sound ready to go that morning. They both gave beautiful testimonies and we enjoyed a lovely potluck afterwards. Then we drove out to a nearby lake where our Pastor baptized them. This was the last baptism service our Pastor did as he is retiring next month.
      Since then been rushing to get the kids ready to start school tomorrow morning and this is my first time back on since then. Looking forward to settling in and reading all the posts since I was last on.

    6. sawdy, Blessings. Thank you muchly for inviting us into that beautiful moment, Maranatha!

  21. Much Beloved Rev12 Family--I have soooo many things I should be doing but find myself sneaking away to take a very long break just so I can be filled up with encouragement (and excellent info) here! I almost made it through all the comments, but am being pulled back into "the world", but before I go I wanted to highlight Sister Gigi's video:

    blue heaven YTC
    What is Going on NOW?
    (Above link starts ~1 minute into the 12 min. video)

    Gigi makes connections with the 2 Year Warning and the Bethlehem Star. Encouraging stuff♥

    1. In looking over my notes of some ominous events reported on 8/23/19, it appears to have been a day of warning as well. Colleen M. took note of a couple of these as well on her last vid and particularly this lightning strike in Poland that seemed to confirm her dream of people running amid an electrical explosion.

      *Poland--Lightning strike kills 5 and injures 150 atop the peak of Mt. Giewont, one of 70 peaks in the west Tatra Mountain Range. A 6217 foot tall summit capped with a 50' Iron Cross which can gather enough electrical charge to trigger a strike. (I've also seen several Sisters who've shared dreams of an Iron Cross in recent months)
      H#6217--ashuqim-oppression, the oppressed---5x in Job 35:9, Eccl.4:1, Hosea 5:11 and Amos 3:9.
      H#50--Abishua--name meaning "my father is rescue". 5x OT
      G#50--agneo--to be ignorant, not to know. 22x NT the last being 2 Peter 2:12

      *5 Bulls ritually killed on Oregon Ranch reported.
      *Dow Drop of 623 points (see Barry Scarbrough vid)
      *5.0 EQ in Ridgecrest CA reported
      *17 yr old Rina Schnerb murdered by IED terror attack in Israel
      *Putin orders Russian response to US Missile Test
      *The whole "Exaltation of Trump" flap--probably at least inspired by the spirit of the AC to cause some consternation among the BoC (which it has).
      *Angel Has Fallen movie released

      **Good News for today--The Sunflowers are in Peak Season. Interesting because these heliotropic plants while growing follow the sun, facing it as it moves from east to west, but once they have matured into full bloom they steadfastly plant their gaze to the East. Reminded me of John 20:21 and 1Thess.5:5.

      A Blessed day All as we plant our gaze toward the coming of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ:-)

    2. Arrgh...John 3:21 (but John 20:21 is always good too:-)

    3. Good compilation Sheila! Yes, I have been trying to follow Colleen Minter closely because I believe the Spirit of Christ is truly revealing things to her!

    4. Mount Giewont is rather infamous for attracting lightnings and it's almost guaranteed to be stricken during any storm. There are a few different mountain tracks to switch to if the weather goes bad, but these tourists for some reason decided to continue going to the summit - probably wanted a photo under the cross.

      It's not exactly just unfortunate accident. It sort of shows mentality of people these days, who even refuse to consider deadly danger and won't repent and leave paths leading to death.

    5. Dominika...TY for your comment as one familiar with the area. If I'm recalling rightly, you live in that region of the world and your words clarify the validity of this tragic incident as a clear picture of the general and willful ignorance towards our Creator. The nature of this warning that occurred on 8/23/19 is amplified in the fact that such a mentality will only lead to death and destruction which seems to be attested to even in the very height of the 50' Iron Cross per the Strong's Greek. Just praying for as many as will to repent and turn to Him while there is still time. Blessings, Sister and Maranatha!

    Bible Prophesy Update - August 25, 2019
    30 mins

  25. Last night I heard very clearly in a dream, a robotic voice almost like an old radio broadcast, "September 17, 1943".

    I looked it up a few minutes ago, but I am just not smart enough to see any thing . Need your thoughts.

    1. 9/17/43*

      *Five hundred members of the SS Croatian Division, a division of Germany's SS, composed mostly of Bosnian Muslims, mutinied at Villefranche-de-Rouergue in France, killing several non-commissioned officers. About 150 of the rebels were killed when the uprising was suppressed, and several of the leaders of the uprising would be court martialed and executed.[69]

      *German Army General Walther von Seydlitz-Kurzbach, a prisoner of war in the Soviet Union and the prisoners' spokesman as president of the "League of German officers", presented a proposal to the Soviet Army for an army corps of 30,000 prisoners to be created to fight against Adolf Hitler. Seydlitz, joined by two other generals, outlined the plan five days later, calling for a massive force of 42,000 German soldiers to invade Germany; a commentator would later write, "Seydlits appears to have had no idea of the death rate of Stalingrad prisoners after the surrender." [70]

      *Germans begin retreat from Salerno plain in Italy.

      9/17/43 to 8/26/2019 not counting start date:
      27,737 days
      75y; 11m; 9d
      911 Months, 9 days

      G27: agapétos: beloved: (27): 1st: Matthew 3:17
      G737: arti: just now: (36): Matthew 3:14-16

      H27: Abidan: "my father is judge," (5) Num 1:11 (1st)
      H737: aruchah: a meal, allowance: (6) 2 Kings 25:30 (1st)

    2. Miguel, I'll add to what Jimboni caught from a couple of different directions. First, just in a Strong's look at the G#'s 917 and 1943, that date points to the dullness in the hearing of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in Matt.13:15, Act 28:27 and the justification by faith without works in Rom.4:4-8 (in which regard the Lord does seem to be impressing a fervency upon many of us as of late to be sharing the specific simplicity of the Good News.)

      H#'s 917 and 1943 pointed to the fall of Babylon and desolation of Israel in Is.47:11 and twice in Ezek.7:26 (I'll take the 2x in the 7:26 verse as an amplification of the witness of what's to come post-Harpazo)

      Then 9/17/1943 pointed me to Bryansk, Russia as the most notable headline I could find for that day involving the liberation of Bryansk from the Nazis. What is interesting is that the Bryansk area, located about 70 km from the Ukrainian Border is a high radiation area from the effects of Chernobyl and Pochep in the Bryansk oblast (or province I presume) is the latest home of their Chemical Weapons factories used for testing and as a supposed disposal site.
      1943 is the year that Russia began their Nuclear Program and Bryansk also pointed me to their Northern Fleet via the K-117 Bryansk--a Delfin Class Nuclear powered ballistic missile submarine, which was the 1000th Russian submarine constructed. There were 7 of these Delfin Class vessels (which use all types of torpedoes) and 6 are reported as still active in their Northern Fleet.

      And ofc, the Israeli Snap elections are scheduled for Sept.17 as well. So just what little I saw in your dream was just to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ while we can as the apostasy is in full bloom, the Russians ARE coming, Babylon will be destroyed and Jacob's Trouble is just ahead.

      *Oh and the "Russians" are now in the news as they send that humanoid "robot" thing--the Skybot F-850 up to the Space Station to test it skills out.

      TY for sharing that dream! It made for an interesting as well as a confirming dig.
      Blessings, Brother:-)

    3. I see parallels In light of the "Fifth Column" element of the 2 counter-movements associated with that day, as well as the retreat of the Na*I World Power in key area, as well. Seems a rather nuanced TYPE not clear yet, but I sense a form emerging. On the note of elements of the army pitted against the Will of ABBA turning on itself:

      Then Saul and all the people who were with him rallied and went into the battle. And behold, every Philistine’s sword was against his fellow, and there was very great confusion. 1 Sam 14:20

    4. Always humbling and wonderful when He speaks this way to me and through me. Thank you for your help on that. I also noticed in my searching that Anthony Zinni was born on that date. He is 75 now and still alive. In 2002 he was elected to be special envoy to Israel and the Palestinian authority. Apparently that is the highest office of ambassador. Think there could be something there too.


    5. Just caught CM's latest video she put up a bit ago and it's an awesome declaration of His Grace. Her excitement is rather catching:-D That and the comment she pinned was also confirming on several fronts. His Love for us is just so mind blowing and heart melting. Don't know whether to pick myself up off the floor or peel myself off the ceiling. No real words for this anticipation....

    6. Amen and amen, 'Sis; HS did a fine job peeling me off the 8/23 ceiling and planting feet back n solid ground with that one. Couldn't help throwing in my 2 cents on the Otiot when I saw the "Spirit-Filled Man" in her video, aka "Behold The Hands, Behold The Nail", wow, so cool. Maranatha!

  26. Persecution of Christians almost at Genocide levels.


    1. For many years now, more Christians are slaughtered, annually, for their faith, than met the same fate during the sum total of the first 1,000 years of Church history. Meanwhile, we sit here and toss Strong's around like a casual afternoon on the tennis courts, wow,. Maranatha!

    2. Yes, we are blessed to be in America. We have it so good here. Only Jesus can fix this. We must pray for God’s Divine protection over our brothers and sisters in Christ and Christian Churches all over the world, especially in N. Korea, China, Nigeria, Pakistan, Iran and really everywhere because no other country has our Constitutional rights but the persecution is worse in some countries than others but it’s still bad to be approaching Genocide levels. Man,
      I NEVER thought I would see those 2 words together in one sentence-Christian Genocide. Another tremendous sign of our Lord’s Rapture of the Church. As Pastor Farag once said imagine how much THEY are praying for our Lord to come and snatch us out of this horrid
      disgusting world with all its child trafficking, drugs, godless, faithless, murder, apostasy and more slavery now than ever. Please, Lord Jesus, please come quickly because I promise You,
      we don’t want to be here !!! We want to be with You and our Heavenly Father in the beauty and joy of Your Presence. Amen.

  27. Family, Blessings. Some Trail Mix for ya's today, something to chew on as we trundle along.

    First, fwiw, some will recall that, sometime within the past year, or so, a plane carrying VPOTUS Pence, while en route, had its call designation changed from an AF2... designate to SAM... . Got intel today in a roundabout way that one very likely reason for this is that the VIP on board had his executive privileges removed during that flight, requiring it be reclassed from being Air Force 2 to being a Strategic Air Mission (SAM). FYI, VPP is believed to be deeply entangled with very, very dark things and one of the Great and Small about to be brought into the Light. This detail and its reason affirms and the currency of this, now, is telling, as well.

    Second, 9/23/17, a date we know well and adore, as Handiwork Of Our King, + 717 days, another number starring, on stage, currently, brings us to Tuesday, 9/10/19. 10 being Divine Ordinance and The Law, as well as Double-Grace (2x5) is significant. Tuesday's, as we know, are preferred for weddings. Ofc, the next day is 9/11, reeking of import, esp in re the Fallen having their Day. Additionally, sigh, this concurs with being ahead of a hard backstop of 9/23, should such exist in re Isaiah 8:4. Maranatha!

    1. Jimboni, thank you for bringing up the Rev12 sign along with the adding of the 717. Given a recent dream along with words from the Father to me over the course of this past year, I'm feeling a strong nudge toward 9/10/19. Trying to not get too excited but we will wait and see! As they say, time will tell. Blessings brother!

    2. Mom, Blessings and happy to have seen it, to share. Was a comment on CM's recently, I think, so I added some hash browns, and seasoning, and served it up here, Maranatha!

    4. Brad, this one's for you: archisunagógos is now your title. Review the duties, above, and it describes the Webmaster's Role here, quite well. Fitting to see it, here, in context of our wait, esp on the Gentile side, no? Add to that the appropriate arok 'long' times equally Entangled with Miguel P's date, and don't step on that shovel, it'll rear up and smack ya!

    5. Thanks Jimboni! That is quite the word you've got there. Well I guess somebody has to try and keep you guys in line.... : ) Haha carry on!

    6. Well Met, Sir, Well Met, indeed! Ecclesiastes 1:9, Maranatha!

      PSR time We continue sailing on high seas, choppy on the surface, with lots of crosswinds, but she follows a stronger current, lately, and the Tells speak of deep winds afoot, as well. "I gotta say, the inside of my sweatpants are feeling real good, lately," says the mate, PTL.

      So, spent some time workin' the ropes with Our Scout, this past Sunday, spotting him and coaching him on his bars routine. At the end, when good and loosened up, and I had a good feel for his milestones, right now, I retrieved the silver crutches which the Director of the Division where I work blessed us with for Christmas, a year ago, and had him lay down and we sized them to him. Well, he's now at 6' so they are a bit short, actually, but in the family tradition of nothing being impossible when duct tape, coat hangers and the garage are at hand, ...

      This past Sunday, Our Scout stood, on crutches, as I spotted him, fully supporting his own weight on his arms, mostly, and also his legs, with enough control in his legs to maintain balance, a good minute and a half before I had him stop. First time in 5 years, to Christ Be The Glory, 1 Corinthians 1:27, amen!

    7. That combination of zeal, strength and balance are a beautiful thing. Praise Yahweh!

    8. What a terrible thing to say to an English prof. It IS a beautiful thing.

    9. Mom, et al, Blessings. Saw that Pearl is still working videos around '717' from one in my random feeds. In light of CM's recent highlighting of the 71717171... pattern throughout and others found braying a similar tune, well...

      Hey, brother, can you spare a 'dime'? Or perhaps a Hamburger, for which I will gladly pay you back, on Tuesday, 9/10, Maranatha!

    10. Jimboni brother, highly intrigued by your VP synopsis. I read that the plane never left JBA. Is this fallacy ?

    11. Archangel, Truth is indiscernible on this one. I, also, recall that in the feed, at the time. Point and counter point were all over so likely impossible to sort out facts. However, credible sources I follow had flight data from online sources, at the time, so I think it is likely true and the efforts/evidences which contradict are dis-intel by those with interests in doing so, likely well tainted with the same evil. My take, so perfectly correct or absolutely wrong, but, there it is. However, in context of the same data from multiple sources concerning the spoiled milk in that jug STRONGLY corroborates the likelihood of its veracity.

    12. Jimboni, thank you for your reply. Since there are several flight apps that can show real-time departures/arrivals/speeds/routes/arrival times, I tend to think your source is credible. If President Trump has to choose a new VP, it will have to be someone with a steel spine like his in order to stand the non-stop attacks. Devin Nunes could do it or Ken Cuccinelli but may want to stay in current positions due to great effectiveness with which they perform their duties. It’s exciting to see how God has gone before President Trump and fought all his battles and the victories have to be seen and praise given to Him. He has thwarted every attack. Currently reading Andrew McCarthy’s Conspiracy of Silence and the painstaking nefarious efforts by all the cabal to deceive, obfuscate and inveigle everyone about President Trump is nothing less than the purest evil. The effort alone to get FISA warrants shows complicity plainly by the players. The fact everything was okay’d by upper echelon is so nauseating to me that I will never believe the fidelity, bravery and Integrity sham again. This can credibly be viewed as 3rd or 4th world corruption by some of the so-called best educated, qualified and (I thought) upstanding law enforcers in the premier Intelligence Agencies of the world. Not even one tiny phone call by someone in the entire FBI, DOJ, CIA to warn candidate/president. One man from NSA ADM Mike Rogers made one secret trip to TT which base of operations was immediately moved to NJ. Awaiting further developments. Thank you so much for your info/intel 🙂 and be blessed, my brother.

    13. Archangel, Blessings. For the edification of the entire Body, sharing what's been shown, Luke 8:17, amen. Not a quibble with anything you pointed to but would simply suggest you have a LOT more popcorn on hand than you think necessary as you ain't seen nothin' yet, Bubba. The big Question is, with so much mass on both sides of the Rube Goldberg device, awaiting one hair to alight in the wrong/right spot, will it actually rip open before we are gone? Clearly, I am remiss in knowing My Lord, better, Maranatha!

    14. Jimboni, brother thanks for your reply. I have to make one correction about the title of the book I am reading: it’s called Ball of Collusion by Andrew McCarthy.

      Oh yes, popcorn. Literal and figurative EQs happening each day it seems especially if your eyes are wide open and looking up. Be blessed !

  28. Pastors Betray Their Flocks
    From Israeli News Live (8/27)
    16min - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=73h92beOcHY

    1. Thanks, Charlie, for the post. Hard to watch, but a true picture of the state of our churches today. It is as Jesus foretold.

  29. Y'all do know what moon we're coming up to again this mid-September, don't ya? The Harvest Moon. Almost home, family!

  30. Morning Family, Blessings. I am guessing this may make MF radar but, until then: Massive inferno engulfs 115-year-old Philadelphia church. Well, the antiquity of the site & city involved certainly warrant OUR note.

    One line which jumped out, ""I see the smoke and the next thing I know I ran over to get the people out of the lobby. ***They didn't even know the church was on fire***," one witness tells Action News." Uhm, you can say THAT again. Action News has learned there were workers on the roof at the time of the fire. Witnesses say Benjamin Peterson, the pastor of the church, was trying to help the worker put the fire out but it got out of control. Luke 18:27 https://6abc.com/live-fire-erupts-at-church-in-parkside-section-of-philadelphia/5496379/

    G115: athetésis: a setting aside: (2) Hebrews 7:17-19, 9:26

    1. ...and of course, both Hebrews refs leap off the page on Grace v Law, in context of a fire in the Philadelphia church which the congregants 'didn't even know' existed, amen and amen.

    2. Jimboni, I can't even imagine what an amazing moment that must have been for the both of you with those silver crutches. Such a blessing just to read about it. May our Lord continue to bless you richly in this wonderful work of renewal!
      I agree with your perception of the Philadelphia church fire. I was looking at the word Ebenezer which was given as the name of the church and which means "the stone of help" or "Thus far the LORD has helped us" from 1Sam.7:12 KJV. This not only applies to us as the Body of Christ, but to our individual journeys as well--which your praise report concerning Caleb greatly attests to:-)

      I have just come from my brother's bedside vigil. I had to leave him with my sisters and come home for awhile to tend to the pets and all and he needed some quiet time for the few hours that he has left, but it's been a rather amazing thing. Here is a person that in the eyes of the world, if he'd been left to die alone in one of the homeless camps he'd always preferred over even the slightest hint of personal responsibility, it might have been a justified ending to a life that for the most part had no good works to boast of and plenty of misdeeds. But he chose to believe in the Saving Power of Jesus Christ in spite of own his total lack of worthiness. That Hospice room has been full of people today--people that had all been hurt by him in some way and some of them many times over for many years, but who'd all come to let him know they were praying for him and held nothing against him, offering their love and care through gentle caresses, forehead kisses and the reading of Scriptures. He could no longer speak or move, but the acknowledgment of their presence was in his surprised eyes. And such is the Amazing Grace of our Lord. It was as if He was saying to my brother, "Look...I have already forgiven you, they have all forgiven you and now you can forgive yourself."
      What a Mighty God we serve! When our faith is resting in Him, He will surely give us rest and peace that goes beyond our human understanding:-)

      Blessings and Maranatha!

    3. Thank you Sheila for sharing that. What a loving and patient God we serve!

      Thank you sister for your faithfulness, constant encouragement, and thoughtfulness. I don't know how you find enough time in the day.

      Thank you brother Jimboni for the same. Can't wait to do whatever we'll do in His eternal kingdom. You're a true friend. And thank Scout for his faithfulness and encouragement too.

      Quick tidbit: today I parked my car and when I looked up I was looking at two doors side by side. Both were to my right. And both said 153 on them. Funny how such a thing can be so encouraging, but it was.

    4. Family, Blessings. Wow, thanks. Our Lord Is So Good, All The Time, amen. Amen to all said about all, love ya's. Encourage to stay on track with vids & comments over at CM. So much immediately around the bend, I think I smell the feast teasing us through a crack in the doors. Sheila B., the HS, I think, hid the Ebenezer detail from my eyes, for yours, as I would have jumped all over it, too. Well done; a Holy Marker Stone Testifying To His Grace And Provision To That Moment, amen. Another one, one could say, there having been so many, at this point, the Great Wonder, Itself, not the least.

      As for that aroma? We are about to P-A-R-T-Y To His Glory, amen!

    5. Wow Miguel on the double 153 doors. Can we get a witness?! I dunno, Brother...if I happened to come across such a sight, I'd probably have to try to go through those doors just to see what was on the other side. That is so cool:-D

      Jimboni...been managing to catch up with CM and comments today. Being the literalist that I am, I do have a problem understanding this being in the Midst of the Week thing that @Humble Seeker has put forth and CM is supporting. If he is correct, then aren't we already nearing the 4th anniversary of that event which would put us some months past the middle of the week? Besides the glaring omission of the two witnesses testifying for 1260 days and being slain for 3 1/2 days before the great EQ as well as the commission of the 144K, there seems to be some other major things unaccounted for in this timeline. I really feel like we are as yet in the Beginning of Sorrows with the full brunt of 70th week of Daniel 9 still ahead, but as I said, I'm a literalist who just can't squeeze such undeniable events into what would now be less than the last half of the 70th week. Not saying I can't learn to re-think something if I can see the possibility of truth in it, but there's a lot of Mike's stuff I really don't get. I would be interested in your thoughts regarding where the 2 witnesses and the 144K fit into their timeline in case I've just missed a reasonable explanation for this. TY and be Blessed, Brother:-)

    6. Sheila B. Very sad reading your post about your brother. It’s brutal watching a loved one slowly slipping away. I had to with my beloved mother and it’s a struggle everyday. But I was grateful to be there before it was too late and that gave me peace. God started sending me dreams about her so I would know He was going to take her. I am eternally grateful to Him for that. I am so glad your brother chose Christ because that’s the only thing that matters in this life. And Christ came to save the sick, wretched and forgotten but not forgotten by Him. May God give you comfort and peace. Be blessed.

    7. Amen Archangel! Thanks for your great thoughts! Praying for you and all yours and for Sheila and all hers! And for Jimboni with Scout very much! Learning your word stock really! This is a Blessing for me! Much Blessings!

    8. Sheila B., Blessings. Touched deeply by your time with your brother, precious of you to share with us. Surely, we mourn not as the world does, and, at the oddest of times, we rejoice! For a soul you grew with to find freedom, when having been so far from it, what a Wonder! I say amen and amen to the 'look in the eyes' connection you pictured, Matthew 6:22. The struggle and the other fuss will naught be given a thought in the celebrations soon at hand, apart, of course, from The Honor And Glory Due Our Lord, amen.

      As to the other, I haven't a clue. I'm just a 10 year old boy, watching the trains down at Macy's for the first time, ever, and simply, totally lost in it, Maranatha!

    9. Yeah...we gotta pray for sister, Colleen. I don't doubt her sincerity, childlike faith, and prophetic voice, but as we know (to quote in her Australian accent), the enemy tries to trick and deceive any way he can through false teaching (and dreams). However, I am encouraged that we have a strong contingent online who are holding the line, unwavering, and absolutely will not tolerate the slightest perversion to our salvation by the gift of God's grace.

      Some folks also seem to be confused between shadow and reality, sign(s) and the main event. So far, we have seen the grandest foreshadowing of the coming Rapture and Tribulation, but we are still here, and that means Daniel's 70th is still yet future.

      I am surprised that sister Colleen would get mixed up with anyone who blurs the lines between the Church age and Daniel's 70th. I'll pray for her, because this is a really treacherous time, and if you are not well-anchored in the grand scheme of the Scriptures, it can get dicey when someone comes along and starts tickling the ears (2 Tim. 4:3).

      Blessings to you all. Please come soon, Lord Jesus!

    10. Amen! Thank you Jeff for your words! Having the same thoughts, and you are very clear indeed! Praying with! Maranatha!

    11. This comment has been removed by the author.

    12. Yeah I am with you there Sheila & Jeff about CM's dabbling down the rabbit hole of we are approaching the mid point of the Tribulation period. Not a chance. When God calls an end to the Age of Grace, there will be no mistaking it. It will be light and Darkness. There will be no ambiguity or wondering, "I wonder are we in the Tribulation period yet?"

      Prayers for Colleen, that she see's the error of "Humble Seeker's" mid week view.

      Sept should be a very interesting month to watch, The start of The Fall feasts, The 2 year anniversary of the Sept 23 sign, and also Lots of talk in the media about food and medicine supplies expected to disappear from Irish & European shelves over night, if Brexit goes ahead with no deal at the end of Oct. The world is on the precipice of disaster striking on multiple fronts, and is blindly plodding along oblivious to what lies ahead.

    13. TY All for the input on the 70th week timeline. For me, I just get a red flag when crucial criteria is overlooked or omitted in favor of supporting "complicated" personal revelations. Even CM admits she doesn't understand a lot of what Mike puts forth, but that she sees something confirming there in re to what she feels she's been shown. She is, however, not being dogmatic about it in expecting others to go along with what is making some sense to her, so we'll just have to see how all of that plays out. That said, just glad to know I'm not alone in my reservations about this midst of the week timing.

      Also want to thank All for your thoughts re my brother's passing which occurred just after 8 am this morning. The Lord is so gracious in such cases to provide us the adequate time for whatever reconciliation is needed for ourselves and each other as well as the one who is departing our present company. I am looking so forward to seeing my brother as the whole and healthy man that our Father always meant for him to be and that for all eternity:-)

      Blessings and Maranatha!

    14. @Sheila B.
      Dear Sister, In prayer that the Eternal Comforter will bring to your family all the rest and peace in this moment of loss!
      Everything HE has under His control.

      "Blessed is the one you choose and bring near,
      to dwell in your courts!
      We shall be satisfied with the goodness of your house,
      the holiness of your temple!" (Psalm 65:4 - ESV)

    15. Amen Jeová, praying with. Praying with you and for you my beloved Sister Sheila, and for all yours! We are now at the very door and very soon will be with our Lord and all our loved ones! Maranatha!

    16. Sorry Sheila I meant to respond about your brother. So sorry to hear that, but wow what a last minute snatching from the Jaws of eternal death, Satan was rubbing his hands in Glee at the thought of getting another soul, only for your brother to be snatched from his grasp in time. I sometimes see the passing of loved ones especially when they have put their trust in Jesus for their salvation as, you lucky person. You get to be with the LORD now. He just got a short head start on you sister.

      It was probably all the seeds you planted that finally shot forth a green shoot.

    17. "What a Mighty God we serve! When our faith is resting in Him, He will surely give us rest and peace that goes beyond our human understanding."
      What powerful words to think on Sheila that can be applied to our lives, our circumstances ...
      His peace with you and your family, Sheila.

    18. Very sorry, Sheila B. May God comfort you as only He can.

    19. Alla D, thank you ! Much appreciated. Be blessed !

  31. In case anyone missed, this post caught my attention this morning: Rapture Reef.

    Here's a prophetic quote from the story:

    “We were expecting some storm damage, some broken coral,” recounted Kosaki, but nothing could have prepared them for their reunion with Rapture Reef. “For Rapture Reef to be wiped off the face of the Earth, it was like a punch in the gut.”

    Just like that. Gone.

    1. Jeff, yours is the 153rd post on this thread, with Miguel P's doors that makes 3, oh goody!

    2. Very interesting Jeff about that article about Rapture Reef. definitely a little wink to us / the world, of how the world will be after The Church have been Raptured, totally devastated and unrecognizable. Thanks for sharing it.

    3. Re Rapture Reef disappearing a year ago, but not “””realized””” until much later. A restricted-access place of pristine beauty. Reminds me of betrothal and marriage. The promise already, but the realization, not yet. Like Habakkuk (2:3) says: Wait for it!

    4. Jimboni, leave it to you, brother, to do the math lol 😄

  32. Ok, Brethren and Sister-en--

    Haven't been able to read all of your wonderful informative comments above, but has anyone put together info re. this month of August's BLACK SUPERMOON?

    Just watched this Youtube video:
    SciFriday: Hurricane Dorian, the Black Supermoon, and Rolling AI Avatars

    Their video explains why it is called "Black" and "Super".

    EarthSky's article describes it as the: "Year’s closest new supermoon August 30":

    Not only that but Forbes wrote this article:
    "This Week’s ‘New Black Supermoon’ Will Make A River Go Backwards And Bring 'King' Tides"

    With the HUGE SIGNIFICANCE OF SEPTEMBER 2019, all this caught my attention. Then I remembered what Mike Young, a pastor/watchman, commented in one of my articles:

    "After that vision I realized that Yeshua was telling me that He was coming back sooner than I thought and that when I saw the moon so very close to the earth would be the time when He would return for His Bride..."

    It was in this article:

    That was the article I shared about the 3 Supermoons of 2019. Now we are having this BLACK SUPERMOON today that may bring KING TIDES! I've been hoping God would show something significant related to:

    The Peace Deal in September
    Israel's Re-do Election in September
    2-Year Warning ends in September

    I think this is it!

    As most of you know, the moon is a symbol of the Church Bride. May this UNSEEN BLACK MOON--the closest to the Earth this year--be the sign that She will be swept away by Her Lord and KING in September 2019!


    1. Lyn, only sharing...

      This year began with three full super moons, the first on 21 January, the second on 19 February, and the third on 21 March. This cycle will now end with three new super moons on 1 August. , on 30 August, and 28 September. While the North American Continent saw the Black New Supermoon on July 31, the two remaining phenomena will happen this time in Europe, respectively, on the last two dates noted earlier.

      LOOKING UP!!!

    2. Jeová--Again I shout, 'WOOHOO!" ;D

    3. Thank you for sharing, Lyn!

      Jeová, great reminder about the start of the year with all the signs in sky (+ Brad's post about the image in the sun of the child in the womb).

  33. Just a funny little titbit, that proves we are born with a sin nature, and that flesh is at war with the spirit and wants to sin.

    so I was on my laptop today, and my 4 year old Calvin asked, "what is that big Blue button for?" pointing to the RETURN or ENTER key on the keyboard. I told him not to press it, as it will cause the laptop to blow up. He smirked and laughed, and a wicked glint immediately came across his face.. he really wanted to press it, to see if the laptop would blow up. I said, "Your not going to press it Calvin, Are you?" he said he really wanted to press it.. I said, "Yeah but it will explode, and all the bits of the laptop will be flung across the room."

    Anyway he didn't press it. But I am sure, he will when I am not looking at him.

    But it just made me laugh, about the sin nature...

    You say no.. and they want to do it.
    You say, don't touch, and they want to touch
    You say, don't sit on the grass, and they want to sit on the grass.
    You say, don't eat the apple, and well she had to go and eat that blasted apple!! :)

    The laptop has been in the house for a couple of years, and he never even wanted to press the buttons.. But give him a command not to press,them, and that is all he wanted to do..

    As Paul says, the law produces all sort of desires to sin, where it would not have been present before.

    Romans 7:7
    "7 What shall we say then? Is the law sin? God forbid! Nay, I would not have known sin, but through the law; for I would not have known lust, except that the law had said, “Thou shalt not covet.”

    1. So true Jordan our human nature stands strong. But our God is gracious it can keep us under the shadow of this wings.I have been out of commission for a bit
      Greetings to you all....

      .Glancing at all the catastrophes, the conundrums within the political arena , and the hearts growing wicked, while listening for the voice of God.. A quick dart into my soul, ....When God speaks ... Do we listen?
      The easiest route for humans is to listen to God's word, spend time in prayer with Him, meditate on His promises, and on his faithfullness. Alas we have arrived to "The Times" when we do not listen. Have we listened to the earthquakes ? Oh, have we beckoned our ear to the startling of lightning throughout the skies.? Are we inclined to watch the flood waters and hail throughout the world and wonder when will it be our turn.? Most shocking, the hearts that have grown wicked are picking up instruments and dashing them at others in order to inflict hurt and pain- .. Not discounting the deception within the church. Do we see the parallels with history... Noah, Sodom and Gomorrah ? Many are at the crossroads... will I serve the Lord will I serve my flesh? My prayer is that hearts would be turned to the Lord and that they will seek him with all their heart Even so Lord Jesus come quickly Maranatha

    2. Cute, Jordan! I have a little story on this sin nature we possess as shown in little kids. I use this little chair to put my feet up when at my sister's while outside (child's lawn chair), and the little guy who is related to her family (5-6 years old) is too big for it, but he knows it is his. He came and took it and moved it away and stood by it, staring at me as if daring me to come and take it.

    3. That's funny Cathi. They are some funny little characters aren't they!

    4. Totally funny Cathi and Jordan. The classic stare down! Experienced that a couple times myself.

      And Jordan , crazy as it sounds I'd want to see that laptop blow to bits. That is the sort of kid I was/am.

    5. Great illustration of our inherent sin nature, Jordan! I, too, have a 4-year-old, so I'm used to the funny—sometimes painful—encounters with a little human who is made in both God's image and my corrupt image.

      I am excited, though, my daughter knows the fruits of the Spirit by heart (Gal. 5:22-23). She even got the last part, "...against such things there is no law."

      Sadly, dada forgot "faithfulness" as a fruit when he was trying to recall the text from memory the other day...I could have sworn that there was only eight. But noooooo. There are nine!

      I've got some work to do...or some walking if we consider Gal. 5:16


  34. Hey guys,
    Seen this one today...

    Rich people injecting themselves with young people's blood, to get younger.

    Jesus must be at the door as the world plunges into darker more malovelent practices. They want to be as gods. Sounds very familiar to Genesis...

    1. Yeah, my brother likes to point out the story of the tower of babel. The whole reason God destroyed them.....they were trying to become like God and take on roles that only He has the omniscience to handle properly. What a mess man makes when he tries to do such things. Another clue of how very close we are.

  35. Dear family, sharing...

    (By T.W. Tramm)

    THE biblical month of Elul begins on Sunday, September 1, this year.

    Here are 10 interesting facts about Elul.

    1. The name Elul originates from the Akkadian word “ulolo,” which means “harvest.”

    2. Elul is the sixth month on the biblical calendar. In Scripture, the number six symbolizes a period of labor and points to the conclusion of God’s 6,000-year plan to redeem humanity.

    3. The constellation sign traditionally linked to the month of Elul is Virgo, or the “Woman of the Apocalypse” (Rev. 12).

    4. Elul marks the halfway point of earth’s yearly circuit around the sun, the autumnal equinox, and the transition from the typologically significant summer harvest to the fall harvest season. Elul is thus a turning point, astronomically, agriculturally, and prophetically.

    5. The first day of Elul traditionally marks the beginning of a 40-day period of repentance in preparation for the arrival of the Day of Atonement, or “Judgment Day.” As part of this custom, every day during the month of Elul, except for the Sabbath, a trumpet is sounded. The daily trumpet blasts are meant to awaken one’s spirit to the fact that judgment is near and time is short to draw close to God.

    6. During the month of Elul, it’s customary to begin or end written letters with the blessing “K’tiva VaHatima Tova,” which translated means “a good writing and sealing [of judgment]” for the coming year. Being sealed against judgment reminds us of the 144,000 sons of Israel sealed by the Holy Spirit before God’s wrath is poured out on the earth (Rev. 7, 8).

    7. The month of Elul is historically associated with major or biblical scale financial collapses, most recently two unprecedented crashes that occurred on Elul 29/Tishrei 1 in 2001 and 2008 (see Jonathan Cahn’s Mystery of the Shemitah).

    1. 8. Tradition holds that Elul is the month in which the “King is in the field.” A popular rabbinic teaching describes the reality of the Elul encounter as a great king paying a surprise visit to his subjects while they are at work in the field. (Workers would be in the field in Elul/September as wheat planted in the spring is typically harvested at this time.) The average person in the field sees the king as inaccessible and far removed, never imagining he will see or speak to him face-to-face in his own domain. Then one day, while the worker is engrossed in his menial labor, he feels a tap on his shoulder. He turns around and to his shock and surprise sees the king standing above him!

      The shock and awe experienced by the worker in the field parallels that which most people will feel when Jesus appears suddenly in the clouds, on a day no one is expecting, to gather the Church.

      9. Jews customarily read Psalm 27 each day from the first day of Elul through the end of the fall festival season at Tabernacles. Psalm 27 describes the Lord keeping His people safe in the shelter of His dwelling during the time of Trouble: “The LORD is my light and my salvation—whom shall I fear? … When the wicked advance against me to devour me, it is my enemies and my foes who will stumble and fall …. For in the day of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling; he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent and set me high upon a rock” (Ps. 27:1, 2, 5).

      10. Elul is known as the “month of the bride.” The bridal theme derives from the fact that the name Elul is an acronym for the phrase oft spoken by the Shulammite maiden in the Song of Solomon, ani ledodi vedodi li—“I am my Beloved’s, and my Beloved is mine.”

      Significantly, the passages depicting the Shulammite awaiting or in the company of her beloved shepherd distinctly mention apples and grapes—fruits harvested mainly during Elul/September. In Song 2:3-5 the maiden compares her beloved to an apple tree and speaks of being brought to the banqueting house where she is refreshed by apples: “Like an apple tree among the trees of the woods, so is my beloved among the sons. I sat down in his shade with great delight, and his fruit was sweet to my taste. He brought me to the banqueting house, and his banner over me was love … Refresh me with apples, for I am lovesick.” In verse 13, tender grapes are mentioned just before the shepherd arrives and says to the maiden, “Rise up, my love … and come away.”

      In summary, Elul is—

      • A time of harvest

      • The sixth month

      • The month associated with the Sign of Virgo

      • A turning point

      • A time to repent before Judgment Day arrives

      • A time of trumpets sounding

      • A time of financial reckoning

      • A time when the King is in the field

      • A season of coupling or marriage

      With the above themes in view, Elul is considered a likely time for major eschatological events to occur.

      This year’s Elul seems an especially apt time because—

      • We’re in the harvest season following Israel’s 70th year (Matt. 24:32-35; Ps. 90:10; Jer. 29:10).

      • We’re in the harvest season following the 49th year since Jerusalem began to be restored in 1969 (Dan. 9:25).

      • A Middle East peace plan dubbed the “deal of the century”—the most talked about, delayed, and carefully guarded peace plan since Israel’s return to the land in 1948, is drafted and ready to be released at the right time by the Trump Administration (1 Thess. 5).

      • The global economy is ostensibly booming—people are buying, selling, planting, and building as never before—yet a number of analysts say it is poised for a collapse that will mark the end of the financial system as we know it (Luke 17:26-30; Rev. 13:16, 17).

      • Earthquakes, storms, threats of war, disease outbreaks, and crop failures/food shortages are increasing in frequency and intensity (Matt. 24:6-8).

      Jesus says to keep watch at all times (Matt. 24:42-51).

      The month of Elul in a year of so much prophetic convergence is no exception.

Colossians 3:2-4

Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.

1 Peter 2:9

But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.

Philippians 3:20-21

But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself.
