A Pre-Millennial, Pre-Tribulation perspective on Biblical end-time prophecy and current world events.
"But as for me, I watch in hope for the LORD, I wait for God my Savior; my God will hear me." Micah 7:7
A review of "The Spirit of Prophecy" book
Recently we received a request from the author of prophecy
related book to read and give a review of his book.The authors name is Daniel Knezacek and the
title of his book is called:
and is publish by Virtualbookworm.com Publishing Inc.
Mr. Knezacek is a fellow Canadian Christian and has an interest
in the study of end-times prophecy. He holds to some similar view points as we
have, but also holds to some ideas that run contrary to the general consensus amongst
most bible prophecy experts, and with us as well.
The book covers a gamut of subjects from the study of the
final 10 kingdoms spoken of in both the books of Daniel and Revelation, to the MillennialKingdom.We found that we agreed with the author on
most of his interpretations on the various subjects.Mr. Knezacek made a very good case that the
Antichrist will arise out of the nation of Jordan,
showing proof with many biblical references to back up his assertion.We ourselves express no particular opinion on the
nationality of the Antichrist.In our
view point he could be European or from the Muslim word, we have seen good
cases for both opinions.Mr. Knezacek’s
interpretation is another good case for an Antichrist from the Muslim world.
We also found the author’s discussion on the coming apostate
church to be very relevant in today’s growing emergent church and new Christian
right movements.We also found Mr.
Knezaceks last chapter on the coming great deception to be most applicable to
how we see events shaping up for this delusion;That being an alien or return of the Nephilim scenario.
The author presented a case for a psedo-Tribulation period
that will occur prior to the actual seven year Tribulation period. The author
asserts that this pseudo period would be a very deceptive facsimile causing the
world to look for a messianic figure to save the world.Enter the Antichrist. We wished the author had spent more time
in his book fleshing out this particular perspective.
Where we took great issue with the author is in his assertion
that polygamy will make a return during the MillennialKingdom. In the authors 8th chapter, he
makes a very lengthy case that polygamy was never condemned by God and is in fact a
legitimate lifestyle, (even today), that was used by God during the days of old
Israel and will be used again to populate the world right after the Tribulation
period.As we said, we have a vastly
different viewpoint on this issue and expressed such to the author
himself.However, we will leave it to
any other readers of this book to come to their own opinion, with respect to what
is written on this subject in the bible.
All in all, and interesting book which should cause the reader
to grab their bible and a good expository book on bible prophecy to determine
if what is written is true.
Prophecy Sign: Prophecies being fulfilled Perilous times to come
Welcome to the year 2019. So will this be the year of Jesus Christ's returns to collect his Bride, the true believing Church, (rapture of the saints)?
dead will live, LORD; their bodies will rise-- let those who dwell in the dust
wake up and shout for joy-- your dew is like the dew of the morning; the earth
will give birth to her dead. Go, my people, enter your rooms and shut the doors
behind you; hide yourselves for a little while until his wrath has passed by.
Isaiah 26:18-20 NIV We of course do not know the timing of Christs return, but by the look of the world, that date is fast approaching. There are many prophecy watchers, both Christian and Jewish, that are noticing the great number of biblical prophecies now being fulfilled. It is quite ironic that the Jewish Prime Minister of Israel, (Benjamin Netanyahu), actually had a Holiday message to Christians across the world about 'ancient prophesies…
Prophecy Sign: The rise of Magog, (Russia), as an endtimes world power
In recent days and weeks, Russia has been acting in some unusual conservative type ways. From thumbing their noses at the Obama administration in it's protection of NSA whistle-blower, Edward Snowden, to declaring that children under 18 will not be proselytized with pro-homosexual information, to Vladimir Putins recent comments praising Christianity in the development of Russian society. Seems rather odd behaviour given that bible prophecy warns that a power from the far north of Israel, (we believe to be Russia), will build a coalition of nations to attempt to invade and pilfer the new found riches of Israel, (oil and natural gas).
Why the dichotomy? Russia as the former communist Soviet Union was indeed the 'evil empire' as former president, Ronald Reagan, called them, supporting a whole host of equally evil nations around the world. Millions of people where murdered under communist rule, all beca…
Prophecy Sign: Increasing seismic, volcanic, and perhaps magnetic field events.
When presenting a blog like this one which contains information about the coming Last Days and admonishes people to get ready for Jesus Christs' soon return, you will receive comments both positive and negative. Fortunately the positive comments far out number the negative ones. One of the criticisms pertaining to the information on this blog is that of we are 'fear mongering', which is rather an interesting criticism considering that accusation would then have to apply to the writers of the bible itself.
Throughout the bible there are warnings of great and terrible events to come at the end of days, (The Day of the Lord, or more commonly known as the Tribulation). Even Jesus Christ himself warned his disciples, (the Olivet Discourse), of the impending terrible events that would befall this world prior to his second coming to planet earth. Here are just a few of those warning which pertain…
From those of us here at Signposts of the Times, we wish you all the very best for the Christmas season, and may God keep you and bless you through the coming year. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men. Luke 2:9-14 KJV

Prophecy Sign: Societal Collapse, (Sexual Depravity, Godlessness, Wickedness)
As we approach the time of Christ's return the world is moving into that period of time which was foretold by none other than the Apostle Paul. He warned that society at large would become ever more perverse, and in his words, would display increasing 'wickedness and depravity'.
However at the same time, there would still be a form of godliness and even an understanding of God's implicit decrees against such behavior. Even knowing this, the world would reject these decrees and in fact would encourage and approve of people practicing these sinful behaviors.
But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather…
Prophecy Sign: The future Global Economic Collapse
As we head into 2019, there are a great many prophetic signs all coming to a head, (a simultaneous fulfillment of signs as it were). One of those major signs is the current economic world system that must be changed into something that will allow for a centralized and globalized control system to be implemented. We call this future system the New Economic World Order, (or Antichrist system).
This future system will be controlled by an overarching global world government which will mandate that every person on the planet be marked, (Mark of the Beast), in order to participate in the new economy.
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
Ultimately God will destroy this new economic world order as p…
Did we not tell you a couple days ago about the many articles coming out about the Interfaith movement? Well in one day we have 3 for you to read. The bible is very clear that as the last days approach, many will fall away from the true faith of Christianity and will search out teachers and doctrines that make them feel good. The bible also tells us that during the dark days of the Tribulation, there will exist a global one world religious system that will work side by side with the Antichrist. Forcing people to accept the new religion and worship the new God, (Antichrist - Satan incognito), or die. (Search out some good studies on Revelation 17 to find out more about this religious system)
From the articles: Various religious leaders prayed for world peace as the sun was rising behind hills at Red Rock Consecrated Sanctuary in Reno (Nevada, USA) on September 12 morning. Hindu statesman Rajan Zed recited hymns from ancient Hindu scriptures Rig-Veda, Upanishads and Bhagavad-Gita at t…
