Signs of the Last Days - News for the week of Sep 24 - Sep 30, 2017

Off to visit family this weekend, so not a whole lot of time for much commentary this week.

This past Sunday, our Pastor read a portion of scripture which had us perk up and take notice for some obvious reasons. You can read that portion below which then had us thinking about recent events:

The Lord said, “Go out and stand on the mountain in the presence of the Lord, for the Lord is about to pass by.” Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and shattered the rocks before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake.  After the earthquake came a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper.  When Elijah heard it, he pulled his cloak over his face and went out and stood at the mouth of the cave. Then a voice said to him, “What are you doing here, Elijah?” 1 Kings 19:11-13

So Elijah experienced a powerful wind storm, (think hurricanes of late), an earthquake, (there's been a whole host of those along the Ring of Fire), and fire, (Western North American burnt over this past summer).  Elijah then heard the voice of God.  Will we soon hear the voice of God calling all of us home?

Then as I looked, I saw a door standing open in heaven, and the same voice I had heard before spoke to me like a trumpet blast. The voice said, "Come up here, and I will show you what must happen after this." Revelation 3:3

This Saturday, (September 30), is Yom Kippur, (The Day of Atonement).  Have read some very interesting articles, (see below), which asks if this coming Jewish Feast Day may have some relevance for the coming Rapture of the Church.  Well we don't know, but it makes for some interesting reading.  So as always, judge for yourself.  In the meantime, even if the recent signs in the heavens have no significance, the news of the week sure do. 

The world is on the precipice of world war three which could break out in either the Middle-East or on the Korean Peninsula, or both.  This would obviously be a major world changer, especially so if this war went nuclear.

The revived Roman Empire is being talked up more and more as the European Superstate, (United States of Europe), rises out of the present European Union. 

Speaking of Europe if things continue as they are, Europe will become majority Muslim in just a generation or two.  This according to recent statistics, (articles below).  This will undoubtedly generate even more cultural/religious clashes in European nations and give rise to more political parties, (such as the AfD in Germany), which oppose further immigration from Islamic nations.  (Ethnos vs Ethnos - Kingdom vs Kingdom).

And finally, the morality of western society is coming apart at the seems as "everyone does what they think is right in their own eyes, (Judges 21:25).  Everything under the sun is excepted and tolerated, with the exception of biblical Christianity which is hated and marginalized.

Should the Lord tarry, we will see you next week.



Revelation 12 Fulfilled: The Midnight Cry
As I write to you now on September 26, now that we no longer have to speculate about what would become of the ominous September 23, let’s scrutinize what did happen that day. No rapture, no unscheduled eclipse… No anything? Nothing at all? Ah, but not so. As I said, how very blind we were.

Putting The Pieces Together
Many people were disappointed by 9/23 and the scoffers really came out of the woodwork.  The media promoted and sensationalized a false narrative that Christians were claiming the world was going to end, which just added to the hype.  No one claimed that the world was ending and in regards to the rapture, we have said the same thing about 2017 for the past year and a half: we don't know for sure the day or hour. 

Sound the Jubilee on Atonement
Many Bible scholars in the past concluded “the last trumpet” referred to the last trumpet on the Feast of Trumpets based on tradition. This has apparently set us up for failure. It also made sense that the Feast of Trumpets was next on the checklist since the first four feasts saw fulfillment at the time of Christ’s first coming.  Much of the traditions surrounding the Feast of Trumpets also seemed to lend credibility to the themes of the Rapture. The trouble is the Sign is for real, it has happened, and the Feast of Trumpets is done. That option is off the table. The question then is, is there a better option to fulfill the Rapture of the Church?
