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: Increase in Earthquake and Volcanic Activity
There has been a great deal of seismic activity of late with a series of large earthquakes hammering nearly every part of the globe, especially along the Pacific Rim of Fire. There are some prognosticators that are worried that all this activity is but a prelude to a much greater earthquake, (9.0 or bigger), which will soon impact the earth.
All this activity below our feet is to be expected as the time of Christ's return fast approaches. Jesus said that one of the signs of his return would be an increasing amount of planet stress, (volcanoes, earthquakes, and even perhaps a poll flip - article below).
Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be earthquakes in various places, and famines. These are the beginning of birth pains. Mark 14:8 NIV
"This is what the LORD Almighty says: 'In a little while I will once more shake the heavens and the earth, the sea and the dry land. Haggai 2…
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: The future False Profit and the Global False Religious System
First it was the political arena with all of the sexual escapes coming to light, (remember Anthony Wiener?, and of course now with the current President's hidden past not so hidden anymore); Then it was Hollywood and the entertainment/media world with the likes of Harvey Weinstein, and many others. Now it's the religious side with the avalanche of news coming out about the horrible sexual abuse of children at the hands of those in leadership of the Catholic Church.
And while in and of itself this sexual depraved abuse is horrible and evil, what may be worse is the ongoing cover-up by the Catholic hierarchy, (including perhaps the Pope himself), of this terrible stain on the name of Christianity.
there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed, and nothing concealed that
will not be known or brought out into the open. Luke 8:17 NIV
There is now a huge movement afoot within the Catholic Church …
So very shortly after the Pope's resignation, a lightning bolt zapped the top of the Vatican, (see video below). Now we are sure the Vatican has been zapped before, but we find the timing of this lightning bolt to be a little more than a coincidence.
Something similar happened right before the Arab Spring sprung to life. A UFO dropped down to just above the Doom of the Rock Mosque in Jerusalem before rocketing skyward and out of sight, (video below). We all know what happened after that little light show, as the Middle-East exploded into revolution as dictator after dictator fell, with many Arab nations still in turmoil, (Egypt, Syria, Tunisia). Might something similar now be in the works for the Roman Church and the world? We all know of the Prophecy of the Popes which suggests that the coming new Pope will be the one who is at the head of the Catholic Church during the coming Tribulation period.
So just what or who is represen…
Well we are back from our paddle-fest around the Bowron Lake chain of lakes here in British Columbia. We had an awesome time and were able to experience the wonderful creation of our great God. Met people from all over the world who were on the lakes at the same time we were.
So now it's time to get back into the grove of things, starting with an interesting article about just how long we have gone since the Oslo Accords, (25 years with no official Middle-East peace deal yet).
To all prophecy watching bible believing Christians, a seven year covenant of peace must be signed and in place during the coming Tribulation period. This seven year period is divided into two portions of 42 months of 30 days each equating to 1,260 days for each half. This first half is know as the Wrath of th…
Sometimes it's just not easy to pick from the plethora of ongoing prophetic signs to give some comment on. So much is going on, as can be seen from the many articles listed below.
China, (Kings of the East), is rising up as a global power; The world is in a conundrum about what to do with the millions of migrants crossing borders, (ethnic group vs ethnic group); The Antichrist control system is fast coming together as China will soon have in place a digital monitoring system that will control every citizen of that nation, (coming to a nation near you); Earthquakes and volcanic activity is on the rise, global plagues are being warned about, the earth is awash with giant storms generated by the oceans. And while Christians around the world are coming under more intense persecution and marginalization, the increase in depravity and godlessness is mind blowing. If one didn't know better, it would almost seem that we are already in the throws of the Tribulation. However these…
Prophecy Sign: Pestilence, Plagues and Disease:
In the article below we read that a pandemic could wipe out some 900 million people. From the book of Revelation we read that war, famine and disease, (pandemics), will wipe out 1/4 of the Earth's population during the first half of the Tribulation. Give the Earth's present population of 7.6 billion and that perhaps 600 million of those may be snatch away at the Rapture of the Church, that would suggest that somewhere around 1.75 billion people would perish, (with at least half of that number coming from pandemics if the article below is to be believed). Interesting how science often time proves the veracity of what is written in the bible, (much to the chagrin of the bible naysayers).
There will be great earthquakes, and there will be famines and plagues in many lands, and there will be terrifying things and great miraculous signs from heaven. Luke 21:11 NLT I looked up and saw a horse whose color was pale green. Its rider wa…
