Converging Signs of an Imminent Rapture
The road that we are traveling upon in life has so many signposts that the Age of Grace is about to end and that the rapture is about to occur that it is becoming increasingly difficult to see the road, itself.Â I am clearly hearing in the spirit that something big is about happen and that it is going to happen very, very soon.Â Exactly what is going to happen is still a mystery.
Perhaps the most convincing indicator that something big is about to happen is the way that all of these signs are converging.Â Just like the popular phrase âa perfect stormâ suggests, a very wide range of seemingly unrelated factors are simultaneously coming together in a way where each factor amplifies the others to intensify the final result. If all of these factors were listed and examined they would produce a very thick book.
Since it is not practical to look at all of the signposts pointing to the end of the age, I would like to point out a few of the most recent ones I have noted and have had the most profound impact upon my sense of what is coming. Read the rest of this post »
Ever since Mark Biltz first introduced his Blood Moon research and findings, the Internet has been abuzz with blood moon theories and ideas. Some say that the rapture will happen just prior to the April 2014 blood moon. Others say the 6th seal will open on that date.
- Only God knows what is actually going to occur on those days. But we can know this:Â Blood Moons are a sign to Israel.
- Blood Moons on feast days are a special occurrence.
- We are on the fast track to the rapture and the tribulation to follow.
Given all that is happening in our world right now (Israel is closing embassies worldwide),Â the saber rattling in the Middle East, the situation in China, in the Koreas, Russia’s rising, etc. etc. , we are truly in the last trimester of the birth pangs.
Our news headlines have gotten so disgusting they should be for adult viewers only. Euthanasia is becoming commonplace all over the world. Right has become wrong and wrong (murder, abortion, mercy killing, new age religion, chrislam, the list is endless) has become the new right.
The world in Noah’s day was a mess. Fallen angels had come down and mated with human women, creating giants. The fallen angels taught man how to kill embryos in the womb, how to cast spells and curses, and all sorts of evil things. Homosexuality was rampant. Transhumanism was the norm – it appears the fallen angels mated with everything that moved.
The Word states that ” …as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. “(Luke 17).
Our current world fits the description of Noah’s world – homosexuality, worship of false gods, transhumanism. According to the Word, it’s going to get worse before it gets better.
Will April 14 signal the start of the Tribulation this fall? Or will the Tribulation begin with war during the Blood Moon eclipse in April?
Whatever happens, God is in control. We are told to watch, to pray, and to spread the good news of the gospel of Christ. If your co-workers, friends and family members do not know the Lord, now would be a good time to tell them about him. Now is the time to get saved.
When the trumpet sounds, and Christ appears in the sky, it just might be too late.
Think the end times are far away? The chip that the FDA approved for human use in 2004Â fits right into ObamacareÂ while the Pope announces plans to dedicate the world to a statue of Mary.
- FDA Approves Computer Chip for Humans10/13/2003 – The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services on Wednesday announced $139 million in grants to help make real President Bushâs push for electronic health records for most Americans within a decade. (2014)
” And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.”
“Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in theÂ Â earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:”Â Exodus 20:4
“Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;”Â Exodus 20:5
Believers in Christ, rejoice!Â “And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.”Â Our redemption draweth nigh.
Jeremiah 50, Babylon, America, Sodom and Gomorrah
You really need to stop and read Jeremiah 50-51. Â The Lord describes America exactly as she is today. Â For people who deny that America is Babylon, let me ask this; If the description of Babylon matches America, and the actions of Babylon matches the actions of America, even if they were not the same wouldn’t they be judged the same? Â If person A steals one dollar and person B steals one dollar, what does it matter what we call them their judgement is the same!
See how the Lord compares Babylon (America) to Sodom and Gomorrah:
And the King of Babylon met with LGBT leaders in Russia during the G20 summit. Â There was nothing more important going on that you carve out time to meet with gay leaders? Â He doesn’t have time to work on a diplomatic solution to Syria but he has all the time in the world to frolic with gay leaders. Â What do we think the Lord thinks about this?
The Lord is not mocked.
Here is proof positive that ancient Babylon is not being spoken of, but it is America the Lord is describing:
Was ancient Babylon “the hammer of the whole earth?” Â No way, not even close. Â At best ancient Babylon was a major REGIONAL power. Â The Lord gives His hand completely away with this statement. Â Who else is “the hammer of the whole earth” if it is not the United States? Â Who else is going from country to country and overthrowing their governments and killing their people? Â I am just asking, if the shoe fits wear it right?
If ever there was a time to repent and pray for our own forgiveness, our families and all the brothers it is today. Â We must ask the Lord to not hold the sins of Babylon against us. Â If you want to know why I do not vote or get involved with any of Babylon’s politics it is to keep blood off my hands. Â Did Jesus vote? Â Did Jesus get involved with Roman politics? Â Did any of the apostles ever encourage us to “get involved” and “make a difference” through politics? Â No, we were told in no uncertain terms that our kingdom is NOT OF THIS WORLD.
This is not to condemn you if you voted. Â This message is one of separation and holiness before the Lord. Â The blood that is on the hands of con-gress and the king of Babylon must not be on our hands. Â Look at America today and you tell me if it looks like she is ascending to greatness in the world or circling the drain of history? Â What do you see happening with your own eyes? Â What does the Word say about nations that act the way America acts? Â What are the divine consequences for acting the way America acts?
America has the leaders she deserves because the people (that is us, the common man) are corrupt. Â If the people were truly godly and righteous do you think the Lord would allow such depraved men to rule over them? Â No way…..
If someone would have told me four years ago that our nation would make a radical turn toward evil and openly do so, I would never have believed them. I thought I lived in a God-fearing nation. The signs that we thought heralded Christ’s return some time ago actually were the first twinges of the birth pangs – twinges that are quickly progressing into full blown labor.
We appear to have made the final transition to the days of Noah – all that’s missing is for the Nephilim to be seen openly among us. The gay rights agenda, abortions, and the flipping of all things right to all things wrong appears complete. Many churches have forgotten that repentance is a part of salvation, that sin is wrong and that hell awaits those who reject Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God. Mega Church Pastors preach feel good sermons and abandon altar calls.Â Christianity has been watered down or, worse, diluted and polluted by the “all gods are good”Â insanity.Â (chrislam anyone?)
The world is gathering, literally, around Israel. Will we soon see Isaiah 17 come to pass? Blood moons portend dark days for the nation created for God’s chosen people. The Word of God tells us that evil will reign for a time near the end. The world becomes increasingly evil – so much so, in fact, that God will ultimately replace both earth and heaven. The current ones will pass away.
No matter what the world around us does, we as believers are to remain strong in Christ. We aren’t of this world – we’re simply temporary dwellers. As the end of the church age draws near, we must maintain our relationship with God and pray for those who don’t yet know Him.
If the generation spoken of in MatthewÂ is 70 years, we’re all about to see how the end times unfold. Israel became a nation in 1948. Add 70 years and you are looking at 2018.Â The world around us certainly appears more than ready to usher in the anti-christ and his agenda. We can take comfort, as always, in God’s words:
And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh…Luke 21:28
30 Reasons Why I Believe the Rapture will likely take place on March 31/April 1, 2013:
- The Jews crossed the Red Sea at night at the beginning of the 7th day of Unleavened Bread. This foreshadowed the Bride of Christ leaving the world (Egypt) to cross over into their Promised Land and the Sudden Destruction of those left behind. The 7th day of Unleavened Bread starts the evening of March 31, 2013, in Israel. http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/march2013/reneem315-5.htm

“…Iâve been thinking this week about President Obamaâs trip to Israel at the end of this month. As we are all aware, his trip (barring a change in plans) is scheduled to coincide with Nisan 10, the day according to Exodus 12:3 that all Israel is toÂ selectÂ a lambÂ for Passover.Â It is also, the same day Jesus entered Jerusalem on the back of a donkey on whatÂ isÂ commonly referred to as Palm Sunday and, four days before Pilate would declare, âI find no fault in himâ.Â Â For this reason, given all the Messianic imageryÂ associated with the currentÂ President, there is good cause for those of us who are watching to cast a watchful eye on these dates….(continue)”
While reading Brother D’s latest (below) I clicked on the video link and fast-forwarded to the 20:30 time marker he mentioned. The talk of a peace treaty is, in itself, newsworthy to those of us watching end time events. What really got my attention, however, are 2 claims made by the speaker in the video and in the video title.
The speaker notes that part of what makes this peace treaty a big deal is the fact that with this new technology, not only will they have the power to implement a peace treaty, they’ll also have the power to ENFORCE it.Â The title of the video, “Keshe’s Free Energy Technology Will Make Today’s Military ‘Useless’,” is a bold (and creepy, in light of end-times) claim.
Ever more reason to be in the Word and in the Lord.Â Â Â Sis C.
We live in interesting times, that’s for sure. Â Since we rolled over the calendar into 2013 we’ve seen
1. Â The resignation of the pope which means a new pope incoming, probably the false prophet.
2. Â Lightning strikes the Vatican the same day the pope announced his resignation
2. Â Obama scheduled his first visit as president to Israel
3. Â Earthquakes, earthquakes and more large earthquakes (2 more M6+ quakes today.)
4. Â A Wormwood like strike to Russia. Â The meteor struck with the force of 30 Hiroshima bombs, and guess what? Â It struck with no warning. Â If you look at the videos and pictures we have of this meteor strike it looks alot like this:
10The third angel sounded his trumpet, and a great star, blazing like a torch, fell from the sky on a third of the rivers
and on the springs of waterâ
I also want you to notice where this star landed….in the water.
The Rapture: Not So Fast
âFor with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and the trumpet of God, the Lord Himself will descend from heaven, and those who died in Christ will rise first. Afterward we the living who remain, will be caught up along with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we shall ever be with the Lordâ (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17).
“Take notice, I am telling you a secret. We shall not all die but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet call. For the trumpet will sound and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall all be changed. For this perishable must put on the imperishable, and this mortal must put on immortality” (1 Corinthians 15:51-53).
The consensus of thought concerning the mechanics of the rapture in the Christian community holds that believers will disappear instantaneously from the earth, in a moment of time. In one instant we will be present on the earth and in the next instant we will be gone. In one instant Christians will be driving cars, flying airplanes, performing surgery, working on computers, in other words transacting life. In the next instant under this scenario cars will go careening around uncontrollably, planes will drop out of the sky and millions of people will âinstantaneously in a moment of timeâ disappear without a trace.
The verses quoted above do not say that we will disappear from sight âinstantaneouslyâ in the âtwinkling of an eyeâ. The scriptures state that we will be CHANGED in the twinkling of an eye and that we will be âcaught up along with them (the dead in Christ) in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the airâ. The change we go through is a change from the perishable to the imperishable, from mortal to immortal. Now the phrase âcaught upâ is translated from âharpazoâ which means; catch up, take by force, catch away, pluck, pull, to seize and carry off by force, to snatch out or away. While these meanings imply some amount of suddenness, they donât indicate an instantaneous event. To be âcaught upâ could be an observable event. To snatch something out of the way is a quick happening event but it is an observable event.
What does the bible have to say about the process of how others have been taken from this earth to meet the Lord?
“…The more I watch the events unfolding around me the less I think I understand about the timing of the events of Revelation….
Here we go again. Â As we move closer to spring the quakes uptick in strength and frequency. Â This writer sounds like a broken record even to himself. Â If this nobody has the pattern nailed, where are the geologists and news media analysts and government big wigs to take note of this pattern and explain the “why” behind the pattern?
The do not acknowledge it because people might start asking questions that would lead them to the truth. Â The truth is, according to the bible destruction is coming from above. Â Revelation 8 tells us about the trumpetÂ judgmentsÂ that come down on the earth from up above our heads.
Jesus said ‘look up’ when all these things begin to happen. Â He really meant it, look up! Â What is going on up there is affecting down here. Â This spring we will have another mega earthquake somewhere in the world. Â How can we be sure? Â The past 3 years have seen 9.0 or real close to that quakes in Chile, Japan, and in the Pacific ocean. Â Last year we had twin mega-quakes and most people didn’t blink an eye at it because they didn’t cause massive loss of life. Â What will we see this year? Â Only the Lord knows.
