The Islamic State Thinks 'Big': Next Target - Jordan and Israel?

Prophecy Sign:  The coming Middle-East Wars

Because of the rise of racial Islam in the world, there are many prophecy scholars that have come to the conclusion that the Antichrist will be a Muslim from the Middle-East, (likely Iraq).  This interpretation includes as proof of this theory the name that the bible calls a future invader of Israel, (the Assyrian).  However both the Assyrian of Isaiah, and Gog of Ezekiel sound much more similar than that of the Antichrist.  For one thing, both the Assyrian and Gog of Magog are destroyed on the mountains of Israel, while the Antichrist is cast alive into the fires of hell, (Revelation 19:20).

Could it be that Gog of Magog and the Assyrian are one and the same person who leads an invasion attempt of Israel near the end of days?  The bible calls this the battle of Gog/Magog, and to many minds looks an awful lot like an false Armageddon scenario, out of which a Messianic figure appears complete with a blueprint for a Utopian earth under his reign, (the real Antichrist).  Could it be that what many prophecy scholars are seeing is not the future Antichrist but rather the forerunner of such - Gog of Magog, the leader of an Islamic army?

An article below describes what a caliphate is, (Islamic State) and how it will be led, (a political/military leader), and what it's intention will be, (the destruction of Israel).  This sounds exactly the scenario of the Ezekiel prophecy, a world war three Armageddon type precursor to the real thing seven years later.

The LORD Almighty has sworn, "Surely, as I have planned, so it will be, and as I have purposed, so it will happen. I will crush the Assyrian in my land; on my mountains I will trample him down. His yoke will be taken from my people, and his burden removed from their shoulders."  Isaiah 14:24-25 NIV

This is what the Sovereign Lord says: You are the one I spoke of in former days by my servants the prophets of Israel. At that time they prophesied for years that I would bring you against them. This is what will happen in that day: When Gog attacks the land of Israel, my hot anger will be aroused, declares the Sovereign Lord.  I will summon a sword against Gog on all my mountains, declares the Sovereign Lord. Every man’s sword will be against his brother. . Ezekiel 38:17-18, 21 NIV
On the mountains of Israel you will fall, you and all your troops and the nations with you. I will give you as food to all kinds of carrion birds and to the wild animals. Ezekiel 39:4 NIV

The Islamic State Thinks 'Big': Next Target - Jordan and Israel?
In a face-to-face showdown, Jordan’s well-trained military and substantial regional and international backing should be too much for the Islamic State to overcome. The real threat is the Islamic State gaining supporters within Jordan. “Mass demonstrations in support of the Islamic State have already taken place in the Jordanian city of Maan,” notes Dr. Mordechai Kedar, an expert on Islam at Israel’s Bar-Ilan University. 
Kedar stresses that many Palestinian and Syrian refugees residing in the Kingdom are angry over the way Jordanian authorities handle their miserable living conditions, "forcing thousands to pledge allegiance to the Islamic State, which they view as a solution to their problems." Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who has been monitoring the developments closely, vowed to help Jordan in curbing the rising threat. "Israel realizes that one day we may all wake up to find the Islamic State on our borders," says Kedar. "The real danger is that Palestinians in the West Bank, the Gaza Strip and even inside Israel proper may support the Islamic State, shattering Israel's security."

'In next war, Hezbollah will try to seize Israeli territory'
If a third Lebanon war breaks out, Hezbollah will try to conduct a ground incursion into the Galilee region of northern Israel, accompanied by massive rocket barrages, a senior IDF Northern Command officer told reporters on Sunday. According to the officer, the current assessment is that Hezbollah will send dozens, if not hundreds, of fighters to seize and hold a piece of Israeli territory, even if only for a limited time, in an effort to achieve a propaganda victory. One possibility is that Hezbollah fighters might try to enter Israel by sea. The IDF has said that, to date, it has not found any attack tunnels leading from Lebanon into Israel, but it does not rule out the possibility that such tunnels exist.

Caliphate: Islamic World's 'Dream Come True'
When ISIS leader Abu al-Bagdadi established a new caliphate this summer called the Islamic State, it sent shock waves through the Middle East. The so-called Islamic State became the first caliphate in nearly 100 years. When al-Bagdadi made his announcement, other Islamist groups, like al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood, condemned it. Regardless of the internal competition, the caliphate would be a dream come true in the Islamic world.
On earth, the caliph fights the non-Muslim world, called in Islam "the house of war." "It's a mistake to think he [the caliph] is like the pope of the Muslims. He is a political and military leader that under him all the Islamic world is united, and of course the war and the fighting against the Christian world would be far easier," Sharon said. Today the jihadist offensive in the Middle East stretches from the Gaza Strip to Iraq. "The major aim of the caliphate is to rule the world, and this can be done under the leadership of one caliph whom he himself only can declare a holy war, a jihad," he said.

Computer Models Tell Us That This Ebola Pandemic Could Soon Kill Millions

Prophecy Sign:  Pestilence, plagues and disease

Ebola may well be in the news for years to come as this horrible disease decimates large swaths of Western Africa.  Some computer models predict millions of death before its all over. Meanwhile other diseases, both old and new are cropping up and spreading in various regions of the world.
Pestilence and plagues in diverse places are both warned of as indicators of the last days.

There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven. Luke 21:11 NIV

Computer Models Tell Us That This Ebola Pandemic Could Soon Kill Millions
We could potentially be on the verge of the greatest health crisis that any of us have ever seen.  The number of Ebola cases in Africa has approximately doubled over the past three weeks, and scientific computer models tell us that this Ebola pandemic could ultimately end up killing millions of us - especially if it starts spreading on other continents.  At first, many assumed that this Ebola outbreak would be just like all the others - that it would flare up for a little while and then it would completely fade away.  But that has not happened this time.  Instead, this epidemic has seemed to pick up momentum with each passing week. 

Ebola crisis could last for years if not controlled quickly
The Ebola outbreak could end up lasting for years and spreading to many more countries if it is not controlled quickly, a U.S. health official told a Senate hearing Tuesday, a day when aid agencies offered a stark assessment of prospects for stopping the epidemic. Lawmakers on Tuesday held their first hearing on Ebola, warning that the deadly outbreak of the disease is getting worse by the minute. The Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee and the Appropriations Subcommittee on Health Spending held the joint hearing. "If we do not act now to stop Ebola, we could be dealing with it for years to come," said Beth Bell, director of the national center for emerging and zoonotic infectious diseases at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Chinese PLA Prof: Third World War Could Break Out Over US/Russia Clash

Prophecy Sign:  Rumors of War

World War 3 is on the lips of many people these days, including academics and geo-political global watchers.  Prophecy warns that we would hear of such rumors of war just prior to the return of Jesus Christ for his Church, (Rapture), with these rumors becoming the real thing of war as the world heads into the seven years of Tribulation.

You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Matthew 24:6 NIV

Then another horse came out, a fiery red one. Its rider was given power to take peace from the earth and to make people kill each other. To him was given a large sword. Revelation 6:4 NIV

Chinese PLA Prof: Third World War Could Break Out Over US/Russia Clash
In an editorial for the state-run People’s Daily, Chinese PLA Professor Han Xudong warns that Beijing should prepare itself for a third world war which could arise out of the conflict between the United States and Russia over Ukraine. “As the Ukrainian crisis deepens, international observers have become more and more concerned about a direct military clash between the US and Russia. Once an armed rivalry erupts, it is likely to extend to the globe. And it is not impossible that a world war could break out,” writes Xudong, noting that “the world has entered an era of new forms of global war” based around the Internet and the concept of sea power.

World War 3: Russia’s Nuclear Weapons Fired, Vladimir Putin Warns U.S. Of More ‘Corresponding Countermeasures’
World War 3 is on the tips of the tongues of many, and now that Russia has fired its nuclear weapons as a show of force, Vladimir Putin is already warning the United States and NATO he believes this new Cold War 2 will cause a planned arms escalation in response to threats made over the Ukraine crisis. In a related report by The Inquisitr, even before Russia invaded Ukraine, various U.S. investors and financial analysts were saying World War 3 is inevitable based upon history and economic cycles. Earlier this month, Ukraine Defense Minister Valeriy Heltey claimed Russia’s nuclear weapons could be used against his country in a tactical strike if tensions continued to escalate.

Weather Trends Make Mockery of Climate Alarmists

Prophecy Sign:  Roaring and tossing seas - Anomalous weather

There is one reason and one reason only for the continued hyperbole over the issue of global climate change - world government, and the desire for many to see it happen.  While all the actual signs of global warming froze up long ago, elites of the world continue to pound the brainwashing drum as they plow ahead with this system of global governance, which will help lead to the one world governmental system of the Antichrist.

"There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. Luke 21:25 NIV

Weather Trends Make Mockery of Climate Alarmists
Last winter was bad, too -- historically bad. The Great Lakes weren't ice-free until June, when the mountainous West was still seeing snow. Nevertheless, the United Nations keeps warning that if we don't do something to stop global warming, terrible things will happen. "The effects of human-caused climate change are already widespread and consequential," the United Nations said. But what effects from climate change? The Earth stopped warming 18 years ago, and the weather has made a mockery of climate change predictions. The number of extreme weather events are down, sea levels are not rising dangerously, and not only is Antarctic ice not melting, it's the largest it's been since measurements began 35 years ago. But world leaders, including President Barack Obama, still act like climate change is a serious problem.

Extent of Antarctic sea ice reaches record levels, scientists say

UN Predicts Climate Hell in Media Blitz for Global Warming Treaty
Get set for a year-long propaganda deluge of global-warming hysteria and climate change consternation. It has already begun, as world leaders prepare to converge at the United Nations headquarters in New York City this week for a Climate Summit on September 23. “More than 120 Heads of State and Government will be attending the one-day Summit hosted by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to generate political will toward a meaningful universal climate agreement in 2015, and advance action on the ground that will reduce emissions and build resilience to the impacts of climate change,” a press release from the UN stated on September 15. As reported here on August 12 (Desperate Dash of Global Warming), the proponents of a UN-run climate regime to regulate and control all human activity are in a desperate dash to gin up support for a binding global treaty at the UN’s Climate Summit in Paris next year — before climate reality causes their dwindling support to melt completely.

Isil want to assassinate the Pope, says Iraq's ambassador to Vatican

Prophecy Sign:  Terror filled perilous times in the last days

Perilous times where people will faint with terror.  What a frightening picture of the last days the bible paint for us.  Much of that terror may well be actual terrorist activity. And there certainly is no lack of hatred for all things Western held by radical Islamists who wish to perpetrate terror all across the West.

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2 Timothy 3:1 KJV

People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken. Luke 21:26 NIV

Isil want to assassinate the Pope, says Iraq's ambassador to Vatican
Pope Francis is at risk of an assassination attempt by the Islamic extremists of Isil, the Vatican has been warned, ahead of his first visit to a Muslim-majority country this weekend. As the 77-year-old pontiff prepares to travel to Albania on Sunday for a one-day visit, Iraq's ambassador to the Holy See said there were credible threats against the pontiff's life. The leader of the Roman Catholic Church could also be vulnerable when he travels to Turkey in November, the ambassador said. Jihadists from Isil have in recent weeks boasted of wanting to extend their caliphate to Rome, the heart of Western Christendom, and have talked of planting the jihadist black flag on top of St Peter's Basilica.

Terror from Middle East, Africa on way to Europe - Egypt president
Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi has warned there is a chance of conflicts in the Middle East and Africa spilling over to Europe, and has called for a “comprehensive strategy” in combatting the threat. Sisi voiced his concerns during a Tuesday’s meeting with French Defense Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian.  The president said there was “the risk of the spread of radicalization in the Middle East and Africa, which will be extended inevitably to Europe, especially the countries north of the Mediterranean.” He urged a “comprehensive strategy” by the international community to handle the threat.

Pope Francis About To Decree Virgin Mary To Be More Important Than Jesus Christ?

Prophecy Sign:  The future global false religious system

Walking in unity as the body of Christ is becoming far more difficult as some members of the body drift off to become parts of a completely different body, (a different Christ).  How else to describe the Roman Church and the current Popes adoration of Mary to the point of placing Mary into the Godhead, even ahead of Jesus Christ himself.

Meanwhile the Pope is out and about working his magic as he attempts to bring in world peace.  This is exactly what prophecy tells us regarding the false religious system of the Tribulation period, which will also be about building a false peace under the reign of a global leader, (Antichrist).

Then the angel carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness. There I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was covered with blasphemous names and had seven heads and ten horns.  The woman was dressed in purple and scarlet, and was glittering with gold, precious stones and pearls. She held a golden cup in her hand, filled with abominable things and the filth of her adulteries. Revelation 17:3-4 NIV

Pope Francis About To Decree Virgin Mary To Be More Important Than Jesus Christ?
According to an article by Vatican Radio, it reports that Pope Francis attended the Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows on Monday morning Mass at Casa Santa Marta. He made a reflection on the Virgin Mary, on how she learned, obeyed, and suffered at the foot of the Cross.

“And this is our hope. We are not orphans, we have Mothers: Mother Mary. But the Church is Mother and the Mother Church is anointed when it takes the same path of Jesus and Mary: the path of obedience, the path of suffering, and when she has that attitude of continually learning the path of the Lord. These two women – Mary and the Church – carry on the hope that is Christ, they give us Christ, they bring forth Christ in us. Without Mary, there would be no Jesus Christ; without the Church, we cannot go forward.”

The argument being presented is that Jesus Christ, the one who says that the only way to the Father is through Me, has been demoted to third place. By stating that without Mary, there would be no Jesus Christ, and with no church, they cannot move forward, Pope Francis effectually placed the Virgin Mary at the Godhead level.

Pope Francis invites China’s President to meet to discuss world peace
Pope Francis has invited the President of China, Xi Jinping, to meet him in the Vatican to discuss world peace, but he has also expressed his own willingness to travel ‘tomorrow’ to Beijing for this same purpose if that were preferable.
The Pope then decided to write a letter to President Xi Jinping, in which he expressed his esteem for “this noble and wise people” and invited the Chinese leader to come to the Vatican to talk with him and to reflect together about world peace but, at the same time, he also expressed his own willingness to go to Beijing for this same purpose if that were preferable.

Tortured in Ukraine: Christians Living a Nightmare

Prophecy Sign:  Increasing hatred and persecution of Christians

A good many peoples and cultures don't much care for evangelical Christians.  From state sponsored Orthodox worldly Christianity, to Islamists, from radical Hindus to Atheists - all would like nothing more than to see the last of biblical Christianity.  We have news....it won't happen, as even during the darkest days of the Tribulation millions will come to know Christ during that time, (with most of them being martyred for their faith).

Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. Matthew 24:9 NIV

Tortured in Ukraine: Christians Living a Nightmare
Ukraine's evangelical Christians are bearing the brunt of the country's conflict, often with deadly consequences. Many believe the persecution is linked to pressure from the Russian Orthodox Church, and the pro-Russian rebels are only happy to do their bidding. "When I was in prison, a rebel soldier told me they have an order to kill all the Christian pastors who are not part of the Russian Orthodox Church," Anatoly, a pastor from Luhansk, said. While that has forced some to go underground, others are deciding to stay. "Many heroes were born out of this conflict - men and women who are boldly sharing their faith and helping those caught in the war," Oleg said.

Dozens of Christians 'including women and children' are arrested in Saudi Arabia after tip-off to state's Islamist police force
Islamist police in Saudi Arabia have stormed a Christian prayer meeting and arrested its entire congregation, including women and children, and confiscated their bibles, it has been reported. The raid was the latest incident of a swingeing crackdown on religious minorities in Saudi Arabia by the country's hard-line Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice. The 28 Christians were said to be worshipping at the home of an Indian national in the eastern city of Khafji, when the police entered the building and took them into custody. They have not been seen or heard from since, raising concerns among human rights groups as to their whereabouts.

Some Atheists and Transhumanists are Asking: Should it be Illegal to Indoctrinate Kids With Religion?
Like some other atheists and transhumanists, I join in calling for regulation that restricts religious indoctrination of children until they reach, let's say, 16 years of age. Once a kid hits their mid-teens, let them have at it--if religion is something that interests them. 16-year-olds are enthusiastic, curious, and able to rationally start exploring their world, with or without the guidance of parents. 

Solar Storm 2014: A New Carrington Event Could Fry Electronics Like An EMP From A Nuclear Bomb

Prophecy Sign:  Signs in the Sun, (moon and stars)

Well the current solar storm of this past week didn't amount to much, (we didn't think it would), but what about the next one, or the next one after that?  That is what has scientists concerned going forward.  Prophecy warns that God will allow the Sun to do some very strange things during the coming Tribulation period.

The fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and the sun was allowed to scorch people with fire. Revelation 16:8 NIV

Solar Storm 2014: A New Carrington Event Could Fry Electronics Like An EMP From A Nuclear Bomb
The 2014 solar storm we are now riding out on Earth has some worried the Sun’s coronal mass ejection (CME) could be as bad as another Carrington Event that fries electronics just like an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) generated by a nuclear bomb. But should anyone be worried, or is it just another opportunity to watch the pretty Aurora Borealis?
The real question is whether a future 2014 solar storm could be as bad as the estimates made for the solar storm of 1859, which is called the Carrington Event after British astronomer Richard Carrington. The electromagnetic solar storm caused telegraph lines to burst into flames, primitive “electronics” to operate without batteries, the earth to literally “boil” in some spots, and the northern lights could be seen so far down south that the Aurora Borealis allowed people to read at night. Some locals really thought the end was nigh.

Seismologists predict another Icelandic volcano is about to blow

Prophecy Sign:  Increase in earthquakes and volcanoes 

It would appear the globe is being readied to be shaken, and tossed to and fro like a drunkard as time winds down to the end.  This will all be part of the final 3 1/2 years of the coming Tribulation period when God finally pours out his wrath on an unrepentant mankind.

The earth reels like a drunkard, it sways like a hut in the wind; so heavy upon it is the guilt of its rebellion that it falls--never to rise again. Isaiah 24:20 NIV

Seismologists predict another Icelandic volcano is about to blow
The red-hot fountains of molten lava, glowing like wildfire, are nothing short of spectacular. Yet they could be ominous portents of things to come. For the second time in four nail-biting years, seismologists in the land of fire and ice, Iceland, are bracing for a monumental volcanic eruption that, once again, threatens to disrupt European air traffic. Back in 2010, the Eyjafjallajokull volcano, which melted through 200 metres of glacier, sent more than 200 million cubic metres of fine ash billowing almost 10 kilometres into the sky. As a result, several European countries were forced to ground or re-route thousands of flights for several days.

'Megathrust' Earthquakes along Pacific Ring of Fire Predicted by Scientists
Megathrust earthquakes are likely to take place along the Ring of Fire in the basin of the Pacific Ocean, experts have said. Earthquakes measuring above magnitude 9 on the Richter scale can be produced by most subduction zones - where one tectonic plate moves under another - along the Ring of Fire, the researchers found. The research, published online by the Bulletin of the Seismological Society of America, looked to calculate the "probable maximum earthquake magnitude within a time period of interest". They looked at the likelihood over various time periods, including 250, 500 and 10,000 years.

The Number Of Volcanic Eruptions Is Increasing And That Could Lead To An Extremely Cold Winter
The number of volcanoes that are erupting continues to rise, and scientists cannot seem to explain why this is happening.  In 2013, we witnessed the most volcanic eruptions worldwide that we have ever seen in a single year, and this increased activity has carried over into 2014.  In recent months, we have seen major volcanoes roar to life in Russia, Peru, Hawaii, Reunion Island, Indonesia, and all over Alaska.  It is highly unusual for so many volcanoes to all be erupting at the same time.  According to Volcano Discovery, a whopping 34 volcanoes are erupting around the globe right now. 

Not One Drop: How Long Will California Survive Life Without Water?

Prophecy Sign:  Droughts 

So what did ancient Israel do to offend God and subsequently receive the punishment of drought? They rejected God for other gods.  What is California doing to offend God?  They are telling the world through movies, television, and the world wide web, that God does not exist and to instead worship the gods of your own making.   Any coincidence that California is now in the same predicament as was ancient Israel?

I will lay waste the mountains and hills and dry up all their vegetation; I will turn rivers into islands and dry up the pools. Isaiah 42:15 NIV

Not One Drop: How Long Will California Survive Life Without Water?
As the California drought approaches its fourth year, Seville’s well is one of hundreds of private water holes coughing up sand and spitting air in the Central Valley, according to Tulare County officials. As many as 100,000 more wells are at risk around the state if the rains don’t come by October.
In what is still the most productive agricultural county in America, the pantry of brands like Hershey’s and Häagen-Dazs, Sun-Maid and Yoplait, the rising number of completely dry homes here has shocked officials and become a visceral symbol of California’s unending dry spell. Thousands of people—most of them farm workers and their families—find themselves with no running water to wash, drink, flush or cook.

Desperate Californians steal water from fire hydrants as rich community pays half a million dollars for over-watering lawns
The ongoing water crisis in California has sparked an apparent crime wave in some parts of the state, with desperate residents illegally taking water from fire hydrants in the middle of the night to keep their lawns green and their animals happy. Reports indicate that, in some areas, as much as 10 percent of the water supply has gone missing, presumably due to theft, a premonition of much worse things to come if rains remain at bay. The city of Lemoore, for instance, a community of some 25,000 people south of Fresno, has seen numerous water thefts in recent weeks — a growing black market for water amidst one of the worst droughts in California history. According to The Hanford Sentinel, thieves are believed to be attaching hoses to fire hydrants throughout the city and pumping water into large plastic tanks affixed to the back of trucks.

School pupils to be fingerprinted

Prophecy Sign:  The "Mark of the Beast" ID system

Children are being indoctrinated at an early age that without a biometric identifier they will not be able to buy.  Other children are being used as guinea pigs for futuristic tracking technology. Fortunately some schools are fighting back and telling the authorities that we don't want your New World Order ID systems around these parts.  Admirable as this kickback may be, the bible tells us that ultimately all will be required to accept a mark of identification and none will be exempt.

It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads,  so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name. Revelation 13:16-17 NIV

School pupils to be fingerprinted
Pupils will have their fingerprints taken at their £20,000 high-tech new school canteen in a bid to reduce queues and monitor pupils’ diets. Redhill School in Stourbridge will bring in the controversial technology as part of a plan to implement a cashless system throughout the school. The system requires pupils to press a finger against a machine which converts the print into biometric data. This can then be used to identify individual pupils accounts.

Missouri RFID Ban Highlights Nation's Privacy Fears
Student privacy advocates are hailing a new law in Missouri that bans school districts from tracking students using radio frequency technology. Last week, state lawmakers overrode the governor's veto of the bill. The controversial technology uses radio waves emitted from tiny batteries, often embedded in a card or badge, to track the location of students. The new law reflects growing national concern about electronic privacy in the wake of reports of massive government surveillance efforts through the National Security Agency.

Will Tribulation begin a year from now??

Prophecy Sign:  The coming time of Jacob's Troubles - The Tribulation - The Wrath of God

Pastor Mark Blitz was the first prophecy watcher to become aware of the Blood Moon Tetrad of 2014-2015. (You can check out YouTube for some of his videos if you are not aware of his work.) Pastor Blitz is now focusing his attention on the seven year Shemitah cycle and how it may play into the coming Tribulation period.  The short video below features Pastor Blitz as he explains this seven year cycle.

Will Tribulation begin a year from now??
Where has the world headed since the first blood moon on Passover of 2014? Our world has now gone past the tipping point, and events are now accelerating out of anyone’s control. Just as ISIS has gone from the JV team to the A team, along with events spreading from Russia to Ukraine and planes being shot out of the sky, we see everything developing exponentially.

The Shemitah year is the seventh year of the seven-year cycle when the land of Israel had to rest, and it was an economic reset year for the financial system. In Genesis, God started the seven-day cycle. We have a seven-day week, then there is the seven-week cycle of 49 days in the Bible from first-fruits to Shavuot, or Pentecost. We have the seven-year cycle known as the Shemitah cycle. There is the seven-Shemitah cycle of 49 years bring us to the year of Jubilee. We know from the Bible that a day with the Lord is as a thousand years, and it has been 6,000 years since the creation of Adam. We are about to enter the seventh millennium, known as the day of rest.

In plain English, the seven-year tribulation could begin next fall. If it does not, then that means it will not start for another seven years since it is just a continuation of God’s orderly time clock. I am not saying the Lord will return next fall. I am not saying the Rapture will take place next fall. I am just saying regardless of where you want to put us on God’s time line, the seven-year tribulation is part of that timeline and will happen as part of the Shemitah cycle.
