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: Globalized Christian Persecution
A very bad month for Christians around the world, (eg the devastating attacks in Sri Lanka and the ongoing Jihad against Christians in Nigeria).
In our complacent Western society, we forget that there is an entire other world out there where Christians are being slowly but surely eliminated from the midst of various nations - in particular, the Middle-East Islamic nations. Christians are being killed simply for being Christians. This persecution is now expanding beyond the borders of the Islamic world into such places as India, (see article below).
In the West, the elimination of Christianity is occurring by decay within the church, (apostasy), and by de-legitimization of Christian principals/values and mocking of Christians in general, (growing cultural secularism). This is all part of the last days and another key sign of the closeness of Jesus Christ's soon return.
Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, …
Prophecy Sign: Israel/Jerusalem - God's Prophetic Time Clock The nation state of Israel has now been in existence for nearly 71 years, (since May 1948). The re-establishment of Israel and the Jewish people to the ancient homeland that God granted in perpetuity to the Jewish people is the greatest fulfilled prophecy of our time. Throughout the Old Testament, we read the written words of the prophets of old who recorded that which was spoken to them from God himself. That at the time of the end, God would gather the Jewish people together and form them into a nation.
days the people of Judah will join the people of Israel, and together they will
come from a northern land to the land I gave your ancestors as an inheritance.
Jeremiah 3:18 NIV "Therefore
say: 'This is what the Sovereign LORD says: I will gather you from the nations
and bring you back from the countries where you have been scattered, and I will
give you back the land of Israel again.' Ezekiel 11:1…
Prophecy Sign: The Image of the Beast
A very interesting article headline reports on a recent European survey which suggests some 25% of Europeans would be ready to install an Artificial Intelligence to the highest level of political power in Europe. At the same time, an Oxford philosopher is warning that the world is on a collision course with a 'technology-fueled super-villain who could take over the world.
Wow!! And these aren't even biblical based articles reporting on biblical inspired individuals making these comments and warnings, These are secular media reports that are, unbeknownst to themselves, making the case for biblical end-times prophecies which foretell of this exact scenario coming to fruition during the dark days of the coming Tribulation period.
of the signs it was given power to perform on behalf of the first beast, it
deceived the inhabitants of the earth. It ordered them to set up an image in
honor of the beast who was wounded by the sword and …
Prophecy Sign: The Convergence of all Last Days Prophetic Signs:
All signs are coming together, (convergence), and that means our redemption is very close. It also means that we who know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior will be delivered from the Wrath of God as he prepares to judge this world during the coming Tribulation period.
Our Blessed Hope is knowing that Jesus is coming soon. Amen! Maranatha!
“When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near." Luke 21:28 NIV And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come. 1 Thessalonians 1:10 KJV Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come on the whole world to test the inhabitants of the earth. Revelation 3:10 NIV

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 Middle-East War(s) - Gog/Magog (Ezekiel 38/38) & The Psalm 83 War
There certainly has been a whole lot of 'growling', 'conspiring', 'anger', and 'jealousy', recently among the enemies of Israel. Iran has made no pretense of the fact that it wants nothing more but to destroy the Jewish State and has now made known to all its Middle-East proxies to prepare for war. These proxies would include some of the names listed in the chart above, and which are named in Psalm 83. O God, do not remain silent; do not turn a deaf ear, do not stand aloof, O God. See how your enemies growl, how your foes rear their heads. With cunning they conspire against your people; they plot against those you cherish. “Come,” they say, “let us destroy them as a nation, so that Israel’s name is remembered no more.” Psalm 83:1-4 NIV
God is not at all surprised at the recent uptick in war mongering and threats from the many enemies of Israel. God knew …
We live in an age here in the Western world, where we think nothing of having no food stores in our cabinets or refrigerators. Everything can be had so easily just by driving down to the local grocery store every day. We think nothing of making all our payments by debit card, with most people carrying only a few dollars at most in their purse or wallet. We think this is the way life will always be, and nothing will change it. In fact most believe it will only become easier and more convenient.
However, all it will take is one major event, (huge storm, earthquake, terrorist attack, solar flair, etc), and our way of life comes to an immediate end, People in those situation will do anything and everything just to survive. (including stealing, dumpster diving, begging, you name it). The huge storm Sandy, that just clobbered New Jersey and New York is a case in point, as these articles attest to.
