Archive for September, 2011

The article below caught my attention this morning, partly because of its topic but also because of its author.  I respect Jack Kelly, he is linked to all over my site and has written some of my favorite articles.  His most recent article goes contrary to a lot of the articles I have posted here in the last few weeks.  I think it is a great read and something we should all ponder.

I agree with him that the key to these end times is to take everything to God in prayer, ask for discernment to know what is truth and what is deception. 

That is what I try to do with this site, is bring topics and my perspective on what I have discerned for you to ponder as you study the Bible, the Lord’s Word.

His main point is that Revelations 12 can not be fulfilled until the previous chapters are since Revelations is mainly chronological.  I believe both his point and the previous posts can be correct.  Let me explain.

Throughout the Bible, many scriptures have dual meanings and fulfillment.  Revelations 12 speaks of things to come but also depicts a sign in the heavens. 

Question?  Do you think God knew we would be able to predict where the stars would be in the future as well as the past?  Do you think the thought that those that are “watchful” would be checking for future times around his “feasts” or “holy appointments”?  I do but ponder that.  I also do not believe what these watchful souls are doing is astrology.  They are only looking for how Bible prophecy (“signs in the heavens”) could be fulfilled.  God told us to watch the heavens for signs.  He created the heavens and all of the signs within it.  Are we ignore them, not look at them or for them?  I am not sure that is what Jack is saying but I think it is dangerous to label what these believers are doing as Astrology or a sin.

Leviticus 19:26 (KJV) – “You shall not eat anything with the blood, nor shall you practice divination or soothsaying.”

I do not think I would place the acts of those watchmen as “divination or soothsaying”.  Maybe a bit harsh there.

God never said that the signs we would see in the heavens would occur this day and then the next day events would happen.  He only said that once we see these “signs” his return is near, that we are in the season or nearing midnight.

Will Elenin fulfill prophecy?  I don’t know, but it is an interesting exercise in looking at what effects it could have on our little planet.  How those align with events described in the Bible and how much deception there is on earth to cover them up.  Would Satan try to cover up and hide God’s signs of the times?  You bet.  Are these them?  I don’t know but that is why we must pray for discernment.

I don’t know when the Lord will return to rapture His bride (the church), but I do feel it is drawing near.  There are signs all around us.  I believe one set of those signs are His holy feasts or appointments that he laid out for us.  The first four Christ fulfilled through his coming, dying for our sins, and over coming death to take His place in heaven next to His Father.  I believe He will fulfill the rest of them as well.

So in summary, please read through Jack’s article below, I believe it gives us some good thoughts to ponder.  Take everything back to the Lord in prayer; praying for discernment of the truth, God’s word.

You can hear the Messiah’s footsteps, the signs are overwhelming!

Why Sept 29 Will Not Fulfill Rev. 12

 by Jack Kelly

Judging by the questions I’ve received, a youTube video and an online article have apparently convinced a lot of people that the fulfillment of Rev. 12 and  the rapture of the Church will both occur on Sept 29th of this year, which is the annual celebration of Rosh Hashanah, also known as the Feast of Trumpets.  Can this be true?

While Sept. 28-29 are the scheduled dates for Rosh Hashanah this year, and while the rapture could happen on any given day, Rev. 12 definitely can not be fulfilled on Sept. 29, nor on any other day this year or the next or the one after and here’s why.

Rev. 12 speaks primarily of three things.  The first is an overview, given in signs, beginning with the time of the Lord’s birth.  John used symbolism from Joseph’s 2nd dream (Genesis 37:9-11) to identify the pregnant woman in Rev. 12:1-2 as Israel (represented by Mary) about to give birth to the Messiah.  An enormous dragon, identified as Satan in Rev. 12:9,  was there waiting to devour the child the moment He was born.   This means that from the beginning the Messiah was born to die, and when He did He was taken up to God’s throne.  We know this as His crucifixion, resurrection, and ascension. (Rev. 12:1-6)

This is a good video that details what the effects of Elenin could be this September from a physics stand point.

It’s effects align almost exactly with those described in Revelations 6:12-14 down to the order of events.

Revelation 6:12-14

New International Version (NIV)

 12 I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red, 13 and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind. 14 The heavens receded like a scroll being rolled up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place.

Is it coincidence?

Note:  I started the video at the 6:04 minute mark and the segment runs through the 10:34 minute mark.  The rest of the video before and after is good, but the text does flash a bit fast as well as a major sound increase.  (The middle four and a half minutes is well worth the time.)

Below is a series of studies that Jack Kelly did a while back on the Olivet Discourse and the parables Jesus tells regarding the last days.

These are often the topic of much debate as to their meaning and I think Jack does an excellent job at look at the grammar, customs/traditions of the period, timing, and context to discern who these parables are about.

They are meant to be read in order but have value as stand alone but some loss of context.

This topic came up over the weekend and I felt others would benefit from me dusting these off as well.

Enjoy!

David does a great job at laying out the feasts and how each one relates to Christ.

Our next one up is Rosh Hashanah (the Feast of Trumpets) – September 29th-30th this year.

Amazing revelations on the major earth quakes and birth pains we have been seeing.

Is everything mentioned in the video coincidence?  I think not.  You be the judge.

Acts 2:21 (NIV) – 21 And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.

More prophecy is closing in on fulfillment.  Each day we see more of the world turning on Israel.  I believe it will climax at the UN meetings this month, when the Palestinians petition for statehood.

God was very clear on where we should stand!

The burden of the word of the LORD for Israel, saith the LORD, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth The spirit of man within him. Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem. And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it. (Zechariah 12:1-3)

I am afraid the United States as a nation has joined the crowd.

We as Christians must continue to voice our support!

Yet another bible prophecy, nearing fulfillment…

The Jerusalem Obsession

A perhaps not-so-shocking, but certainly attention-getting, news item points to the ugly head of anti-Semitism arising in not-so-jolly old England these days. The stark growth of Israel and Jew-hating is front and center in the person of the kin of a prominent British leader you will recognize.

Laura Booth, sister-in-law of Quartet envoy Tony Blair, has called on “Lebanon, Jordan and Egypt liberate Al-Quds [Jerusalem].” The former British prime minister’s family member has previously sailed illegally to Gaza on a flotilla boat…During last week’s demonstration, Booth went on another rant against Israel. “We say here today to you, Israel , we see your crimes and we loathe your crimes. And to us your nation does not exist, because it is a criminal injustice against humanity. We want to see Lebanon , Jordan and Egypt go to the borders and stop this now. Liberate Al Quds! March to Al Quds!” (“Blair’s Sister-in-Law Incites Muslims to ‘Liberate’ Jerusalem,” http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/147264#.TlukeV3h98F)

Current issues and events that look to be harbingers of the biblically prophesied apocalypse bombard this generation of earth’s inhabitants. Jesus’ Olivet Discourse prophecies, foretelling things to come in the time of “great tribulation,” seem to leap from news reports that are becoming so routine that they no longer shock. No signal is more prophetically significant than present circumstances involving the city where Jesus was crucified nearly twenty centuries ago.

Below is a great article from Rapture Ready by Todd this week.

He does a good job outlining the deception and manipulation that is going on these days.

It is one of the major signs the Lord used to draw me into Bible Prophecy and it is escalating more every day to the point that today, they do not even try to hide it.

The Liberal Media Pulling Strings

I have always maintained that the liberal media is Satan’s most effective tool for guiding and controlling society. It is the flesh and bone of spiritual forces that seek to guide and corrupt our society. In the past few years, the liberal media seems to have become more active in fulfilling the will of its master.

It is almost pointless to try to combat the social and political ills unless you take into consideration the liberal media. It has the power to set the rules. By putting its thumb on the scale, it can determine the winner of most public debates.

The finger of blame is rarely ever pointed at the liberal media for society’s ills. This is because the press is in charge of fixing the blame. Letting the liberal media decide if it’s partly to blame for our country’s moral decline is like putting tobacco companies in charge of finding out what causes lung cancer.
