Twenty-One Signs of Doomsday (Update LII--3 1/2 Years Later)

Article#: 1865

Every year of life has tens of thousands of events and circumstances with which we interact, but typically, only one or two high points stand out in the memory.  I am drawn back to a college sociology class about 50 years ago.  The “professor” posed a question to the class: “How do you get to heaven from here?”  There were about 30 students in the class, representing hundreds of years of pew-sitting, but the answers boiled down two:

1. Obey the 10 commandments and go to church regularly; and
2. Just be a “good person” and don’t harm anyone. 

The class settled on these two answers and the teacher voted for #1.  I had not voted.  I raised my hand.  When the “professor” acknowledged me, I asked if he would accept Jesus Christ as an authority on how to get to heaven.  “As Christians,” he replied, “we would have to.”  I answered, “In that case, both answers on your blackboard are wrong.  Jesus said in John 3:3 that you must be BORN AGAIN:”

Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.    

Have you been BORN AGAIN—born a literal second time, this time of the Spirit of God?  This is the only way to see the Kingdom of God.  Brother Peter makes it very clear in Acts 4:11-12.  He speaks of Christ:

11 This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner.

12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

Are you confused?  Are you torn between two decisions?  Settle it today, for there truly is no other name under heaven by which we must be saved.

Make your move for Christ now and the fog will lift. Today, all your sin and the heavy shame will be washed away by Christ’s cleansing blood.  Today, all of Satan’s bondages will be broken—the bigger, the better.  Follow me in a simple prompt and everything will start anew for you.  This is the event you will remember for all eternity, and it will reign above all others.  Here comes the prompt I promised: Click onto “Further with Jesus”  for childlike instructions and immediate entry into the Kingdom of God.  NOW FOR TODAY’S SUBJECT.

GOD SAID, Zechariah 10:1:

Ask ye of the LORD rain in the time of the latter rain; so the LORD shall make bright clouds, and give them showers of rain, to every one grass in the field.

GOD SAID, Daniel 9:5-8:

5 We have sinned, and have committed iniquity, and have done wickedly, and have rebelled, even by departing from thy precepts and from thy judgments:

6 Neither have we hearkened unto thy servants the prophets, which spake in thy name to our kings, our princes, and our fathers, and to all the people of the land.

7 O Lord, righteousness belongeth unto thee, but unto us confusion of faces, as at this day; to the men of Judah, and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and unto all Israel, that are near, and that are far off, through all the countries whither thou hast driven them, because of their trespass that they have trespassed against thee.

8 O Lord, to us belongeth confusion of face, to our kings, to our princes, and to our fathers, because we have sinned against thee.

GOD SAID, Daniel 8:23:

And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.

MAN SAID: These Doomsday prophets make me laugh!  There is no “end of the world” and certainly no “judgment day!”

Now THE RECORD: Welcome to GodSaidManSaid feature 1062 that will once again certify the pure, inerrant truth of God’s Holy Bible.  All of these powerful features are archived here in text and streaming audio for the edification of the blood-bought and as ammunition in the battle for the souls of men. Every Thursday eve, God willing, they grow by one. 

Thank you for visiting.  May God’s face shine upon you with Light and Truth.

Three and a half years ago, December of 2017, many read the GodSaidManSaid feature titled “Three and a Half Years.”  I felt impressed of God to embark on a 3½-year journey seeking more Christ-like capabilities, especially in the realization that doomsday is knocking at the door.  All were encouraged to begin their own journey, and some did.  Some really big things have happened in the past 3½ years that have moved the minute hand of the doomsday clock just minutes away from midnight.  Much of the original feature “Three and a Half Years” follows:     

Much of Christianity today is a sham.  Truly, the love of many is waxed cold.  Jesus speaks of the last days in Matthew 24:12:

And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

Surely, we are looking at this.

Masses seek God for what’s in it for them.  While it is true that this is how we came into the Kingdom of God, and yes, we will always need God’s support and protection, our focus must change.  The quest for blessing dominates and many measure the blessing by a yardstick of wealth, health, and happiness—the blessing is measured in the getting, the getting of physical things.  However, the real and ultimate measure of blessing is in the givingActs 20:35:

I have showed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive. 

Jesus Christ died a naked pauper. 

These are the last days and our Lord said to work while it is yet day.  I, personally, have decided to begin an accelerated 3½-year journey in the faith and I am looking for a few good men and women, boys and girls, to go with me.  If you decide to come, your departure date will be your own; mine begins January 1, 2018 and will end June 30, 2021. 

The question is often asked: “Where are all the miracles—miracles like the ones Jesus performed?”  While talking to an individual who was pondering that very question, I answered: “First, you need to be where miracles happen, which is on the front lines of ministry, not typically found in being glued to the TV or smartphone, or cheering at a sporting event. You’ll find the miracles with the saints who are laboring in Word churches, jails, hospitals, orphanages, missionary fields, and the like.” 

The real question should not be where are all the Jesus miracles but where are all the Jesuses?  I have seen many miracles over the years and glorious miracles are happening all over the earth and I personally want to participate in more of them.  How about you? 

A famous evangelist had asked God for a ministry full of signs and wonders—signs and wonders like Jesus did—and God gave him a list of things he would need to do and understand in order to be used in such a powerful way.  A few paragraphs from A.A. Allen’s book, The Price of God’s Miracle-Working Power, follow:

“The disciple is not above his master, nor the servant above his Lord.”  What strange words!  Why should God speak thus to me? 

Somehow, I knew that I had read those words somewhere, but where?  (I later discovered that this was quoted from the Bible—Matthew 10:24.)  But this was the voice of God, speaking directly to ME.  This was the same voice which had spoken to Phillip (Acts 8:30), saying, “Go near, and join thyself to this chariot.”  It was the voice which Peter had heard (Acts 10:15), saying, “What God hath cleansed that call not thou common.”  The voice which God’s Word tells us may still be heard today.  “As the Holy Ghost saith, today if ye will hear his voice harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness” (Hebrews 3:7-8).  Now I was hearing the voice of God.  All others who might share in the message of these words were, for the moment, blotted out of my thinking. I had asked God for a solution to my problem, and God was giving the answer.

First of all, I must know that never could there be any possibility of being above my Master, Jesus. 

You say, “What is so strange about that?  Surely no one would expect to be above Him?” 

But wait! You may find that you, too, just as I had, have been seeking and expecting that very thing.  I had read His promise, “He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father” (John 14:12).

Every believer has promised to him the same power which Jesus used—miracles after the same pattern which they saw their Master do, first in the flesh and later through the written record found in the four Gospels.  What mighty things would have been accomplished had all the followers of Jesus made use of this power! 

Again and again, Jesus pointed out to His disciples the price of following in His steps, recommending that they count the cost, and offering them the opportunity of turning back if the price seemed too great, in proportion to the value of the blessing to be received.  Our Master, “for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God” (Hebrews 12:2). 

If the Son of God must suffer rejection, persecution, cruel scourging, and crucifixion at the hands of those to whom He came to minister, His disciple is not above suffering in order that he may carry the gospel of deliverance to those in bondage.

If Christ Himself must reject all earthly ambitions—even refusing the opportunity to rule the world, when that opportunity was presented aside from the principals of godliness (Matthew 4:8-10)—then surely His disciple, if he is to know real power, must have an eye single to the purpose of God, rejecting all offers but His, no matter how attractive they may be.  His cry must be, like his Master, “Lo, I come to do thy will, O God” (Hebrews 10:7).  Like Paul, he must be able to say, “I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ” (Philippians 3:8). 

If the Son of God must spend long hours of the night, when the rest of the world was sleeping, alone on the mountaintop with His Father, in order that He might be able to cast out even those demons of whom He said, “This kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting” (Matthew 17:21), surely His disciple must also spend hours in fasting and prayer, waiting upon God—learning to think and act in unison with God—before he can expect to cast out such demons. 

If the disciple could attain the same results which Jesus did without paying the same price which Jesus paid, then it would have to be confessed that the disciple had become greater than his master.  The “student” would have learned a better, more efficient method than that taught to him by his “teacher.”  But the student of Jesus Christ cannot become greater than his teacher.  He cannot learn anything which Jesus did not know.  He cannot find a short-cut to power with God.  [End of quotes]

The question is not where are all the miracles but where are all the Jesuses? 

This 3½-year journey will be marked with changes that will more perfectly mirror the ministry of Jesus Christ, which lasted about 3½ years; those 3½ years were the most powerful years of ministry the world could ever know.

Christ was quoted earlier telling us it was more blessed to give than to receive—and surely it is true—but in the giving, the most powerful blessings result. 

During this 3½-year journey, changes must be made; they could look like this:

1. Jesus would arise early, before the day began, to seek the face of God in prayer.  This is the perfect place for God to communicate with you and to order your steps.  I need to rise up early to seek God’s face like Jesus did.

2. Increased meditation on the precepts of God.  Psalm 1:1-3:

1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

When scientists were asked how to unlock the inner savant that we all possess, they answered meditation

3.  Increase your daily study of the Word of God.  Psalm 119:130:

The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.

Our Lord Jesus’s name in Revelation 19:13 is “The Word of God.” God’s Word is the bread from heaven.

4.  Go to a Bible-believing church at least twice a week and get involved with its efforts. Hebrews 10:24-25:

24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:

25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

Medical science has discovered that those who attend church more than once a week live 11% longer, are sick less often, and when sick, recover quicker.  Surely Christ delivers life and life more abundantly. 

5. More fasting and prayer, seeking God for solutions, and seeking a more perfect understanding of the Kingdom of God.  Health benefits of fasting are well documented. Watch stress and anxiety melt away.

6.  Employ the 90-10 principle.  Typically, a believer comes to the Father with 90% petition and 10% praise.  Switch it to 90% praise and 10% petition.  The Bible says God inhabits the praise of His people and God is the Creator of every good thing. 

7.  Witness of Christ to the lost and encourage the saints.  The Great Commission is Mark 16:15-16:

15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

Keep in mind: A blood-bought soul is worth more than the aggregate wealth of the universe.  Daniel 12:3:

And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.

8. Jesus said in Mark 16:17-18:

17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;

18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

Seek to cast out more devils, pray more in the new tongue, and lay hands on more sick.

9. Feed more poor, visit more sick and imprisoned, and care for the widows.  James 1:27:

Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

Your list may differ, but be assured that applying these Christ-like principles will produce Christ-like results. 

You may look back on your life and consider your efforts for the Kingdom of God to be “shabby” or “not so productive,” but that can change today.  In 3½ years, the ministry of Jesus Christ changed everything.  If we want to do like Jesus, we need to do like Jesus.  The servant cannot be greater than his master.  Write your ministry dates on a 3x5” index card and post it where you’ll see it and remember your commitment.   Jesus said the field is white and ready to harvest, but the laborers are few.  Three and a half years have begun. [End of quotes]

In the first 14 days of January 2018, when my journey began, death came knocking at my door.  For 70 years—other than having my tonsils removed as a child—the only time I spent in the hospital was visiting and praying for the sick.  In those first 14 days of January 2018, I was admitted through the ER (emergency room) twice with bizarre physical situations.  The second was even described by the doctor as “touch-and-go.” I saw both situations as very good signs. Satan was attacking.  He saw my 3½ years as a serious threat to his kingdom of darkness and deadly bondages. 

The original GodSaidManSaid 3½-year journey ended on June 30, 2021.  Looking back, we see some very marvelous things and some very ominous things occurring, but doo keep in mind that even the ominous things work together for our good—even at the highest level of Holy Ghost good.  Fear no evil!

Most are unaware that GodSaidManSaid has zero paid employees.  All labor is donated with great joy to the Cross of Christ, and its more than labor alone.  Money is also donated to the advertising budget used to draw visitors to this website.  Those visitors, if not already saved, are encouraged to visit “Further with Jesus” and reach full salvation.  Many will find the following statement incredulous, but over the past 3½ years, GodSaidManSaid has purchased souls on our “Further with Jesus” soul counter at $3.00 each. $3 buys one soul, $30 buys 10, and $3 million purchases one million souls on the “Further with Jesus” soul counter.  Ecclesiastes 10:19: “but money answereth all things.”  Don’t you doubt it.  It is true.

Before a brief review of the ominous, consider these very powerful, uplifting GodSaidManSaid statistics:

1. In the past 3½ years, GodSaidManSaid has approximately doubled its advertising/evangelical budget.  During this period, and by this year’s end, God willing, we will have spent over three-quarters of a million dollars fishing for the lost sons and daughters of Adam.

2. During our 3½-year journey, and by this year’s end, we will have added around 260,000 souls to our “Further with Jesus” soul counter.

3. In the same time period, GodSaidManSaid will have hosted 19,162,500 individual subject visits, and each one shouts, “Jesus Christ is the Lord of Glory!”

4. It’s been a long time coming, and its here!  GodSaidManSaid is now available to read or listen in Spanish.  Translators, our narrator, and our editor are working diligently to reach a November deadline when we will launch a major advertising campaign to the Spanish-speaking world. May God’s face shine upon the labor and may it produce millions of souls for Christ Jesus.

5. GodSaidManSaid launched and completed a major billboard campaign on the east coast of the United States.  All of our advertising efforts combined tally into tens of millions of exposures.  Psalm 68:11:

The Lord gave the word: great was the company of those that published it.  

6. During this journey, and including to the end of this year, we will have published 206 new GodSaidManSaid features, each proving that God is and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him (Hebrews 11:6). 

7. By year’s end, GodSaidManSaid will have sent out nearly two million emails to those who have signed up for our weekly subject broadcast, and expect to tally 100,000 Facebook content interactions—better than mere “likes.”

A lot has happened in 3½ years.  May God and His Christ be glorified. 

During the 3½ years, our congregation has prayed and fasted for five months of Sundays, seeking God for the latter rain that precipitates the end of the world as we know it.  We are instructed in Zechariah 10:1 to pray for the latter rain:

Ask ye of the LORD rain in the time of the latter rain; so the LORD shall make bright clouds, and give them showers of rain, to every one grass in the field.

  During this latter rain, a move of God like the ministry of Jesus Christ and the apostles will spring forth around the entire globe, and it may be starting as we speak.

The devil is aware of the prophecies of the end of the world and of his own judgment.  In the last 3½ years, the devil hasn’t been sleeping.  Bullet points of some of his workmanship follow.  As you read this short review, keep in mind that when the Antichrist takes his seat, it will be as prophesied by the prophet Daniel: “…when the transgressors are come to the full” (Daniel 8:23). 

🟐 Covid-19 has crippled the entire world.  It came in on the back of a bat and the world hasn’t seen the end of it yet.  In Leviticus 11, God commands against eating a bat or even touching its body—it is an abomination. Man, in his vast wisdom, disregarded the commandment and mocked God’s Word.  The world reaps what they have sown. The question isn’t whether Covid-19 came from bats, but whether if it came from bats eaten and handled in a Wuhan wet-market, or whether it sprung forth from a leak out of the Wuhan Institute.  The following excerpts are from the June 18, 2021 issue of The Week, under the heading “The ‘Lab Leak’ Hypothesis: What Does the Evidence Suggest?”

The evidence for the lab-leak theory [coronavirus has escaped from a Chinese laboratory where it was genetically engineered to infect humans] is stronger, said Marc Thiessen in The Washington Post.  We know now that under the leadership of Dr. Shi Zhengli, known as China’s “Bat Lady,” researchers at the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV), were engaged in so-called gain-of-function research, engineering bat coronaviruses to make them human-transmissible.  In November 2019, three of those researchers went to the hospital with Covid-like symptoms.

Some of Shi’s research was funded directly by grants from our own National Institutes of Health, said Katherine Eban in VanityFair.com.  The NIH denies funding any gain-of-function research, but admits it can’t be sure how its funds were used.  This may explain why in January 2020 a State Department official privately sent a memo to colleagues, warning that looking into the lab-leak theory might “open a can of worms.”  [End of quotes]

🟐 What affects the US has a ripple effect felt around the globe, and it is experiencing considerable political unrest.  A major portion of the US electorate believe Joe Biden and the Democratic Party “stole” the Presidential election.  Truly irreconcilable differences prevail.

🟐 The US Biden administration has begun to fund the enemies of Israel again, and 1500-plus missiles rained down upon the Jewish people.  The table is being set for all the world’s nations to come against the Hebrew people.  Zechariah 14 verses 1-9 and verse 12 speak of the world-ending battle of Armageddon:

1 Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee.

2 For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.

3 Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.

4 And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.

5 And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the LORD my God shall come, and all the saints with thee.

6 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light shall not be clear, nor dark:

7 But it shall be one day which shall be known to the LORD, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light.

8 And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be.

9 And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one.

12 And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.

The nations are gathering. 

🟐 A major global drive is being spearheaded in the United States and is pushing with all its might to legitimize and even glorifying all forms of sexual perversion and sexual confusion typified in the LGBTQ-plus-XYZ movement.  All that resist will be branded and stigmatized as “evil haters.” Indoctrination is intense, from cartoons and kindergarten and on.  God is offended.

From the GodSaidManSaid feature “Twenty-One Signs of Doomsday (Update XXXIV)—Big Earthquakes in the Forecast (Part 1):”

Before judgment, wickedness must come to the full.  Consider the headline in the July/August 2015 issue of AFA Journal, which was originally published by TheSundayTimes.co.uk, “Mx New Gender-Neutral Title?”  A paragraph follows:

The Oxford English Dictionary is considering adding the gender-neutral term Mx to the dictionary’s list of honorific terms such as Mr., Mrs., and Miss.  The title, frequently used in the UK by transgenders or those who wish to avoid traditional gender designations, has also been adopted by government departments, banks, universities, newspapers, and the Royal Mail postal service, and for drivers’ licenses.  [End of quote]

From the GodSaidManSaid feature, “Twenty-One Signs of Doomsday (Update LI)—How the Whole Thing Works (Part 2)

Satan’s God-defying, word-changing scheme was demonstrated in a news release published March 2021 in the AFA Journal.  This release was originally published January 2, 2021 on WashingtonTimes.com.  Headline: “U.S. House Adopts Gender-Neutral Terms:”

On January 4, the U.S. House of Representatives adopted rules disallowing “offensive” words such as he and she, claiming an effort to “honor all gender identities.”

In addition to striking gender-specific pronouns and terms such as seamen and chairman, the resolution specifies unacceptable familial relationship terms.  In clause 8(c)(3) of rule XXIII, the following terms are rejected: father, mother, son, daughter, brother, sister, uncle, aunt, nephew, niece, husband, wife, father-in-law, mother-in-law, son-in-law, daughter-in-law, brother-in-law, sister-in-law, stepfather, stepmother, stepson, stepdaughter, stepbrother, stepsister, half-brother, half-sister, grandson, or granddaughter. Acceptable replacements are: parent, child, sibling, parent’s sibling, sibling’s child, spouse, parent-in-law, child-in-law, sibling-in-law, stepparent, stepchild, stepsibling, half-sibling, or grandchild.

Franklin Graham responded to the nonsensical rules: “God ‘created them male and female’ (Genesis 1:27).  This is shaking a fist in the Creator’s face, trying to deny His authority.” [End of quote]

🟐 The Bible calls it “confusion of face.” The great last-days prophet Daniel prays in Daniel 9:5-8:

5 We have sinned, and have committed iniquity, and have done wickedly, and have rebelled, even by departing from thy precepts and from thy judgments:

6 Neither have we hearkened unto thy servants the prophets, which spake in thy name to our kings, our princes, and our fathers, and to all the people of the land.

7 O Lord, righteousness belongeth unto thee, but unto us confusion of faces, as at this day; to the men of Judah, and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and unto all Israel, that are near, and that are far off, through all the countries whither thou hast driven them, because of their trespass that they have trespassed against thee.

8 O Lord, to us belongeth confusion of face, to our kings, to our princes, and to our fathers, because we have sinned against thee. 

Confusion of face is the fruit of casting off the inerrant truth of God’s Word and making the wrong decisions.  This condition is unavoidable: God has been mocked, God has been removed and banned from our public schools, blocked from governance and public discourse, and thoroughly expunged from the world’s halls of higher learning. 

Today, our children are confused.  They just don’t know:

🤷 They don’t know the world was created by God. 

🤷 They don’t know that America is a Christian nation.

🤷 They don’t know that sex out of wedlock—fornication—is thoroughly excoriated in the Scriptures. 

🤷 They don’t know that co-habitation is a sin.   

🤷 They don’t know that all forms of homosexuality are an abomination to God.  

🤷 They don’t know that men and women alone should marry

🤷 They don’t know if they are boys or girls.

🤷 They don’t know which bathroom to use, or team to try out for.

🤷 They just don’t know

Underscoring this confusion, the headline from the January/February 2019 issue of AFA Journal reads, “New York City Designates Third Gender Option.”  The report reads:

As of January 1, New York City natives will be able to change genders on their official birth certificates from male or female to X, a non-binary identity category.  In early October 2018, Mayor Bill DeBlasio signed the ordinance into law.  Known as the Gender Marker Bill, the ordinance makes it easier for one to change genders legally by simply submitting a personal affidavit rather than a letter from a physician or an affidavit from a health care provider.  [End of quote]  

God’s Word calls it confusion of face

🟐 The US—the last bastion of the freed of speech—finds its freedom of speech under serious attack.  The government’s threat of “hate speech” hangs an evil scepter over the heads of the free and the brave.  Political, academic, and corporate censorship and public shaming are the orders of the day.  The global digital giants now dictate what is true or false, and what is spoken.  Note: Everything is truly made out of words, therefore Satan must control the dialogue.

If you think that America has free speech, you just haven’t spoken in the right circles.  Consider that GodSaidManSaid has been banned from advertising on the two largest US nationwide radio networks along with numerous other metro radio stations, and major newspapers have even refused our ads.  We were not permitted to air radio commercials in England and were canceled by two major radio stations in Sydney, Australia.  This has been going on for twenty years.  In the public forum, freedom of speech is an illusion.  The Bible is now classified as “hate speech” in the US and banned.  Its adherents are persecuted in many countries.

🟐 The god of the world’s academics is the blasphemy called evolution—or, as the English pronounce it, EVIL-lution.  It’s drive and promotion of certifiable deceptions is ever ratcheting up.

🟐 A spirit of strong delusion is possessing the hearts of the disobedient.  At the very end of days, we find delusion ruling. II Thessalonians 2:8-12:

8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

We are certainly here.

🟐 Matthew 24:7: “…and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes in divers places.”  The headline from The Daily Telegraph reads, “Be Afraid: The Mice are Coming.”  Excerpts were reprinted in the May 14, 2021 issue of The Week:

New South Wales has turned in to “a real-life horror movie,” said Lachlan Leeming.  A sudden boom in the field-mice population has sent millions of the rodents marauding across the state, “eating everything in their path.” This is a state that has already endured three years of drought, followed by wildfires and then floods.  Farmers were counting on this year’s harvest, and now the mice have stripped their fields bare.  “The mind boggles at what the little bastards can do,” said farmer Greg Storer, who watched an undulating carpet of field mice gobble up 800 acres of wheat.  Those crops haven’t satisfied the rodents’ hunger.  They have also eaten through walls, infested schools, and are “nibbling people in their beds and in their homes and cars.”  The smell is everywhere—both the stink of their urine when they are alive and the stench of their rotting bodies when they die.  [End of quote]

🟐 Again in Australia, and from the June 25, 2021 feature of The Week:

Plague of spiders: The region of Gippsland in Australia’s Victoria state was blanketed by spiderwebs this week, a result of creepy-crawlies fleeing heavy flooding that killed two people and left hundreds of homes without power.  Sheet-web spiders normally live on the ground and escape wet conditions by ballooning out a single strand of silk and floating miles away to higher ground.  But so many millions of them tried to float away at the same time that the threads just joined together into a mass of gossamer teeming with tiny arachnids.  The event comes as Victoria and other Australian states have been battling a plague of mice, which have been breeding frenetically for months and are now eating their way through crops, homes, and cars.

🟐 72% of the vast US west is experiencing a mega-drought which threatens human life, livestock, and farming, and which will trigger devastating forest fires.  The headline in the July 2, 2021 issue of The Week reads, “The West’s Mega-Drought.”  Excerpts follow:

The West is in the middle of a widespread drought emergency of historic intensity.  Seventy-two percent of the West is under “severe” drought conditions, according to the U.S. Drought Monitor, and more than 25 percent is in an “exceptional” drought, the most extreme category.  Many reservoirs are at record lows; last month Lake Mead, which provides water for 25 million people, hit its lowest level since it was filled in the 1930s. 

Scientists suspect the Southwest is in the grip of a “mega-drought”—a severe drought that lasts for decades.  In a study published last year, scientists who analyzed ancient tree rings identified four such mega-droughts over the past 1,200 years, and said the one underway may equal the worst of them.  And climate change may keep this drought locked in.

Global devastations caused by plagues, pestilence, famines, and drought, earthquakes, wars and rumors of war, and political unrest will prevail right at the time of Jesus Christ’s return for His church, the BORN AGAIN.

Possibly the biggest event of the last 3½ years happened in 2020, the last year of Trump’s presidency.  The following paragraphs are from the GodSaidManSaid feature, “Twenty-One Signs of Doomsday (Update XLVII—Just Minutes to Midnight):” 

The beginning of the 70th week—each week representing 7 years—marks the beginning of a seven-year period known as the Great Tribulation, which will begin with a peace treaty, a covenant struck between Israel and the gentile world. Daniel 9:27:

And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

In the middle of the week, 3½ years (Daniel 12:8-12), the son of perdition will break the covenant with Israel and go into the Jewish Temple, offering himself up as God. He will take away the newly-reinstated daily sacrifice, and place the abomination that marketh desolate in the holy place. 

During this seven-year tribulation period, and especially during the last half, God’s judgment on this earth will be devastating.  It all culminates at the battle of Armageddon, where the blood will be to the horses’ bridles (Revelation 14:20). 

The August 28, 2020 headline in The Week reads “Israel-UAE Deal: A Big Win for Trump.” A paragraph follows:

The Trump administration just brokered a “historic peace deal” in the Middle East, said Alex Ward in Vox.com.  In return for Israel suspending its planned annexation of the West Bank, the United Arab Emirates will become only the third Arab nation to recognize the Jewish state—and the first since Jordan in 1994.  Trump called it “ a huge breakthrough” after his son-in-law and senior advisor, Jared Kushner spearheaded six weeks of negotiations. Both countries have now promised to work on establishing embassies and direct flights.  Most importantly, halting the West Bank annexation revives the possibility of a “two-state solution” between Israel and the Palestinians, which had been all but dead.  It’s a big win for Trump, said Daniel DePetris in WashingtonExaminer.com.  The president becomes the first since Bill Clinton to sign a Middle East peace deal and gets a “big, bold achievement” to tout during the campaign.  [End of quote]

The lead sentence in the feature just cited reads, “The Trump administration just brokered a ‘historic peace deal’ in the Middle East.”  This is the first peace deal between Israel and an Arab nation in over a quarter of a century.  The UAE is onboard and other Arab nations are anticipated.

Another feature in the same August 28, 2020 issue of The Week headlines with “Israel: Making New Friends in the Arab World.”  A paragraph follows:

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu just secured his legacy, said Boaz Bismuth in Israel Hayom (Israel).  Under a US-brokered deal that was announced last week, the United Arab Emirates has agreed to normalize diplomatic relations with Israel in exchange for Israel suspending its planned annexation of the West Bank. It’s a huge achievement for Netanyahu.  Only two Arab states had previously recognized Israel—Egypt and Jordan—and most Arab countries in 2002 had vowed not to normalize relations with Israel until the Palestinians had secured statehood.  Abu Dhabi’s crown prince and de-facto ruler, Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan (known as MBZ), deserves praise for abandoning that pointless pact. Our two nations’ militaries can now work together, which means Israel will have “a frontline base of operations in the Persian Gulf to counter Iran.”  We’ll also benefit from having “robust trade ties” with the country that has “the seventh-largest oil reserve in the world.”

In 2020, Israel established diplomatic relationships with four Arab League countries: Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, Sudan, and Morocco.

Is it just minutes from midnight? 

🕛 We have a budding fig tree and a generation whose days are running out. 

🕛 We have Daniel’s 70 weeks, with the final week floating that marks the final seven years of time as we know it. 

🕛 We have an altar, the equipment, and garments to function now, and a temple that could be operational in six months.

🕛 We have a historic peace accord between Israel and the UAE.

We can’t be certain that this particular peace accord is the one prophesied in Daniel Chapter 9.  Only time will tell. Of the end and the final peace accord, I Thessalonians 5:1-3 reads:

1 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.

2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.

3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.

If we are at the end, we will see global pandemics, riots in the streets, wickedness to abound, full global confusion of face, economic disasters, earthquakes, tsunamis, stars falling like figs, and the rest of the book of Revelation.  When this judgment is done, the world will have arrived at Armageddon.  A small fraction of the world’s population will survive.

As in the days of Noah, the ark is now boarding.  Get on before it’s too late.  Click onto “Further with Jesus now. Prepare to meet your God. [End of quotes]

Jesus said in Matthew 24:7-8:

7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

7 All these are the beginning of sorrows.

Saints, prepare to meet your God.  Three and a half years have come and gone.  The horse is out of the barn. 

GOD SAID, Zechariah 10:1:

Ask ye of the LORD rain in the time of the latter rain; so the LORD shall make bright clouds, and give them showers of rain, to every one grass in the field.

GOD SAID, Daniel 9:5-8:

5 We have sinned, and have committed iniquity, and have done wickedly, and have rebelled, even by departing from thy precepts and from thy judgments:

6 Neither have we hearkened unto thy servants the prophets, which spake in thy name to our kings, our princes, and our fathers, and to all the people of the land.

7 O Lord, righteousness belongeth unto thee, but unto us confusion of faces, as at this day; to the men of Judah, and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and unto all Israel, that are near, and that are far off, through all the countries whither thou hast driven them, because of their trespass that they have trespassed against thee.

8 O Lord, to us belongeth confusion of face, to our kings, to our princes, and to our fathers, because we have sinned against thee.

GOD SAID, Daniel 8:23:

And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.

MAN SAID: These Doomsday prophets make me laugh!  There is no “end of the world” and certainly no “judgment day!”

Now you have THE RECORD.
