We are now mid-way through the Tetrad we discussed last year in our 2014 Signs and Seasons article. In that article we explained there will be a total solar eclipse that will take place on March 20th. Why is that interesting? That date marks the first day on our Father’s calendar, that day being the Spring Equinox. Fifteen days later on April 4th, the first of the final two total lunar eclipses of this Tetrad occur. We should note April 4th is Christian Passover in addition to Jewish passover. While the last total lunar eclipse of this Tetrad will occur on September 28th which is the true (approximate) birth date of Jesus Christ and the first day of Sukkot which is another Jewish holiday.
As we said last year, considering the timing of these celestial events and according to the signs we have been given in the scriptures (Joel 2:30-31, Matthew 24:29-30 and Acts 2:19-20) these events combined with world events are very interesting to say the least. Again, we caution our readers not to get caught up into setting dates. Simply analyze the events that are unfolding with respect to scripture. With that said, let us review some of the events that transpired last year.
2014 has marked an enormous escalation in the decline of our (U.S.) country in addition to the stability of the world overall. In the United States we have seen a tremendous change in military power. Numerous nuclear commanders and other high ranking military members have been removed from their positions of power and months ago Chuck Hagel was removed from his position as Defense Secretary (Air Force: 34 nuclear missile officers implicated in cheating scandal, Air Force Fires Commander of Land-Based U.S. Nuclear Arsenal, No. 2 US nuke chief suspended over gambling probe, Navy commander killed in Orange Park hotel). It has been rumored that Hagel was not willing to attack Syria which the U.S. is now doing. We have also witnessed numerous top level bankers who have been murdered. Why? What is the commonality between all of the aforementioned people? Did they refuse to go along with what they were asked to do?
Meanwhile, the elected representatives of our government have refused to enforce the law being our Constitution and instead continue to break it. One of the latest examples is president barrack obama of the United States who has granted amnesty to over 5,000,000 illegal aliens. This was done against the will of the American people and this action broke the laws of this nation in the process. obama has even granted incentives to employers who hire illegal immigrants. Meaning, law breakers now have an advantage over legal U.S. citizens. Then we have the DHS who has stated drunk drivers and sex offenders are not their top priority for deportation. I would have to ask, then who is? We have heard Republicans call obama Cesar and state something must be done to stop him. How about enforcing the law of the land and removing this impostor from office?
In other parts of the world banks are now issuing negative interest rates which means depositors are now paying the bank to hold their money. We are seeing governments withdrawal their gold reserves from United States banks and Bloomberg is reporting that our money is safer under our beds than in our bank account. Meanwhile, the U.N. is creating a global bankruptcy process for indebted nations and no nation on the globe has more debt than the United States. Let us not forget Russia’s collapsing currency. These are not the news headlines of a world mending its wounds, but a world slowly bleeding to death.
Many of us are concerned about the very troubling emphasis in the United States and other parts of the world to militarize the local police forces. It has been reported over and over again how surplus war-time military equipment is being given to local police departments including grenade launchers, amour and MWRAP vehicles to name a few. An officer who drives one of these MWRAPs recently stated they were necessary because of the Constitutionalists and proceeded to state his concern was law abiding gun owners. What an outrage. Meanwhile, our border patrol agents have to share their firearms. And “the U.S. Supreme Court just ruled 8-1 that peace officers are permitted to violate American citizens’ Fourth Amendment rights if the violation results from a “reasonable” mistake about the law on the part of police“. Does this sound like a government who wishes to protect their people or enslave them?
The United States “Ebola Czar” recently stated population growth is the main threat facing the world. Shouldn’t this man be concerned with the United States instead of the world and about preserving people’s lives instead of being concerned about population growth? You see the globalists are truly looking for a global population of 500,000,000 people. That would require a reduction of 6,500,000,000 souls… While that is their goal, that will never happen as it is not a part of our Father’s plan.
We are told at every stop on our daily commutes to get the flu shot though it is not effective and there are some serious side effects. It is worth noting that Italy has now banned the flu shot due to 9 deaths that occurred after the injection was taken. Why are we never told to eat healthy and drink fluids instead of taking the needle? Because there is no money to be made.
We are continually spied on by our government, a story that has been documented in depth by the mainstream (globalist controlled) media. We should ask ourselves, why is the mainstream media making such an effort to tell us about government spying? I believe this is taking place in order to cause Americans to become upset with their government. To make them unhappy with law enforcement and give them another reason to embrace world government when it is unveiled after the collapse of the world’s governments.
We are seeing the mainstream media continue to display law enforcement in a negative light with the recent shootings that made national attention and now we are hearing reports of citizens shooting at the police. Why are we not hearing calls from the mainstream media and our elected representatives for calm? Instead of calm we are seeing Americans start to revolt against their government and I am sure the children of Satan smile at that knowing their plan to divide our nation is working flawlessly. We also saw a “revolt” in Nevada in 2014 and the mainstream media was quick to instigate the situation.
We are continually told about an economic recovery. But, how can there be a recovery when the banks required and still do require a bailout funded by the tax payer? That is not the sign of a healthy economy, but one fighting off imminent death. How can there be a recovery when over half of Americans make less than $28,000 a year? How can there be a recovery when the US debt is over $18,000,000,000,000? How can there be a recovery when the U.S. government pays more in interest than what they collect in taxes despite record tax revenue? The truth of the matter is the United States is bankrupt as are the other nations of the world. They were put on life support in 2008 in the form of bailouts. It is not some mere coincidence that these nations were bailed out. They were bailed out to set the events that will soon take hold of our world. A catastrophic collapse of the world’s financial system which will happen soon. This event combined with others will literally bring about world government (Satan’s Beast Government), which is documented in Revelation 13.
The spiritual aspect of our nation is right on par with Romans 1. Thirty five US states now allow homosexual marriage. Our Father is not happy with this type of behavior. Then we have people who are being fined for refusing to host same sex weddings on their own properties. While astute universities like Harvard are now offering students with “Anal Sex 101” classes.
I ask that you turn your Bible with me to,
24 “Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:”
26 “For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:”
27 “And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.”
We are talking about homosexual behavior, leaving that which is natural.
If we shift our attention to our elected representatives we see them bow their heads in prayer to heathen god’s. While some city council meetings now invoke the devil and other gods while praising “mother earth“. Let us now turn our Bible to,
25 “Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.”
Many in the new age movement worship the earth. These people are no different than the heathen of old who worshipped sticks and stones.
Then we have a U.S. president who refuses to acknowledge Christian prayer days, but has no problem acknowledging heathen holidays.
We have “church leaders” who held the first Muslim prayer in the National cathedral and Muslim prayers are now being held at the Vatican. To make matters worse some Pastors are being asked by the government to turn over their sermons. Meanwhile, our elected representatives are pushing for a “global covenant of world religions”. These should not be the actions of Christians especially “church leaders”. We all know there is only one way to eternal life and that is through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The “religious men” of our time have conformed to the wicked ways of the world by mingling Christ with the religions of the world. Christianity is not a religion, but a reality.
28 “And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;”
Many people in the world today do not want to hear about our Father, they absolutely hate Him.
God told us in 2 Thessalonians 2:11-12 that if the people of the world wanted to believe a lie He would allow it and even help them believe that lie. That is exactly what Romans 1:28 is talking about as well.
29 “Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,”
30 “Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,”
Haters of God and inventors of evil things really stand out to me. Our world strongly rejects God today and we see the spirit of wickedness growing stronger by the day. We see Satanic displays being put in the public’s sight more than ever before. We hear of evil inventions some of which include, combing the genes of three people to produce a single child (also see: World’s First GM Babies Born, Gelatin to be Made From Human DNA). This is unnatural and against our Father.
31 “Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:”
I look into the eyes of many today and see an empty soul. A soul that is void of knowledge about world events and more importantly a soul that has no understanding of our Father’s Word. A soul that lacks affection for their fellow man. A soul that must be directly affected by an event for it to seem real or meaningful to them.
32 “Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.”
Considering what we have just discussed, most of the world’s people understand perfectly well their behavior is not in line with our Father, but they do not care. Instead they take pleasure in their wicked deeds.
This now leads us to the Middle East. Just months ago Israel blocked access to the temple mount an act that has caused riots and outrage among the Muslim community. The Israeli government is also being dissolved and will host new elections in March of this year. Meanwhile Israel is once again considering attacking the sovereign nation of Iran over “nuclear weapons” even though Israel will not sign a nuclear agreement themselves. Biblically, we know Iran will be broken right before the appearance of Satan (Daniel 8) who will claim to be Jesus Christ.
Now let us zero in on Syria. Last year propaganda was issued stating Syria was using chemical weapons against their own citizens and we nearly saw the U.S. strike that country. War was adverted in the last minute as it was revealed the entire story leading up to war was a lie. This would not stop the children of Satan who God is using to fulfill His Word.
The lie called ISIS was created and has since been used to further destabilize the government of Syria. United States president barrack obama recently stated he would sent troops to Syria if ISIS acquires nuclear weapons. Now we are being told ISIS has nuclear weapons according to their “twitter feed”, how convenient.
There are now talks of a United States imposed no fly zone in Syria and Israel has bombed Syria once again. These actions are and will further destabilize the government of Syria who was elected by over 89% of the vote months ago. The globalists first few attempts at taking down the government of Syria have failed, but they look to succeed this time and fulfill the scriptures of Isaiah 17:1… In order to cement our understanding of this situation we must realize obama has stated Syrian President Basher Assad must be removed from power in order to stop ISIS. Let there be no doubt in your mind what the goal is in Syria, to remove the duly elected representatives in order to bring a banker controlled government to the region. A government controlled by the children of Satan.
Though the world may tell us everything is fine, the truth of the matter is we see a world in distress my friends. I would like to spin the globe back to the United States for a moment… Within the same week we saw the flag of the United States draped across the field at the World Series and we saw it tear right down the middle, reminiscent of the veil that was torn from top to bottom at the time of Christ. Just days before that we read the story about the 10 Commandments statue in Georgia that has been the center of attention for years. We read how it was destroyed by a man in a car who stated the devil told him to do it. I cannot help but think these are more signs of the destruction of our once great nation. I would like everyone to recall what Moses did to the Ten Commandments when he found the Israelites sinning when he came down from the mountain top (Exodus 32:19).
My friends these are not the events of a world coming closer together, these are not the events of a world repairing itself, but of a world collapsing. Understand this is all by design; the events we are witnessing are being put forward by the children of Satan who are in control. I would like to add if you are frightened and worried by the events transpiring in our world then you do not understand the promises of our Father. What has He stated?
30 “The Lord your God which goeth before you, he shall fight for you, according to all that he did for you in Egypt before your eyes;”
Our Father does what? He goes before us. While we cannot see the dimension He is in, He is always right here with us along with a whole Heavenly Host that is able to protect us. Our Father will fight for us and protect us just as He did for our people in Egypt. Our Father will “not fail thee, neither forsake thee: fear not, neither be dismayed,” by the events taking hold on our world (Deuteronomy 31:8).
I believe 2014 has marked an extreme escalation in world events. But how many of us know people who truly understand that? How many of us know people who understand the world by appearance is spiraling out of control, but the truth of the matter is while things appear out of control they are running right in sync with the plan of the children of Satan. There are not many people who realize this at all. Instead of people acknowledging these facts and turning to God they instead fulfill the scriptures,
2 Peter 3:3-4
3 “Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,”
4 “And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.”
Even though the events and prophecies are unfolding right before their eyes they cannot see.
16 “But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.”
17 “For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.”
This scripture will continue to validate itself as the days wear on.
Instead of men filling their hearts with God, wickedness and lawlessness fill their hearts. Instead of turning to God, men instead “Do as thou wilt.”
We are seeing the words of 2 Timothy 3 come to pass which documents these signs belong to our time.
2 Timothy 3:1-4
1 “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.”
2 “For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,”
3 “Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,”
4 “Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;”
We see all of these aspects in our world today and they have truly rooted themselves in mankind. The last days are straight ahead my friends and the events of our world are lining right up with scripture.
1 Thessalonians 5:1-2
1 “But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.”
2 “For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.”
Most Bible teachers stop reading right here. But let us continue..
1 Thessalonians 5:4
4 “But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.”
You see, the return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will not come as a thief in the night to His children. Why?
1 Thessalonians 5:5
5 “Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.”
As children of the light, that light being of our Father we understand the false messiah Satan comes first claiming to be Jesus Christ and that is our ultimate sign.
1 Thessalonians 5:6
6 “Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.”
