    "I used to believe that the biblical pestilences described as occurring during the Tribulation period would be the likes of Ebola, Smallpox or some other equally horrific virus. The reality is they may well simply be a variant of the common cold run rampant. Once again, the shadow cast by the Tribulation period falls over our own collective horizons. Time is short".

    This Is The Last Generation: How Close Are We To The Rapture Of The Church?


    This is the last generation. As far back as 2500 years ago, the Bible predicted many of the prophecies that we are experiencing in this very hour. Many of these prophecies began when once again Israel became a nation (1948). In fact, the Bible is clear, once Israel became a nation, a generation would not pass away before we would see the Second Coming of Christ (Matthew 24:4-34). It's fascinating that the Bible would predict, 2500 years in advance, the starting point and the ending point of the last generation. The starting point being the rebirth of Israel and the ending point being the Second Coming of Christ. Many prophecies that are slated to be a part of this last generation have come to pass. I believe a generation is between 70-80 years as stated in Psalm 90:10 (NIV.."Our days may come to seventy years, or eighty, if our strength endures; yet the best of them are but trouble and sorrow, for they quickly pass, and we fly away") It amazes me that out of the last 2500 years it is within this 70-80 year time span that these prophecies have begun to take shape. Below is a list of the prophecies that have come about within this last generation:

    * The re-gathering of the Jews into their homeland (Ezekiel 37:11-13) after thousands of years of God ordained exile. Another amazing fact, after thousands of years living in other nations, there Jewish culture has remained intact.
    * The rebirth of Israel as a nation in 1948 (Ezekiel 37:10-14; Isaiah 43:5, 6; 66:7-8) in one day. Israel literally became a nation again in one day. Following their declaration of statehood, the next day, five Arab nations attacked Israel. But Israel defeated them and has grown into a major world military power. This prophecy of rebirth essentially kicked off the beginning of the last generation.
    * The Arab world will claim they are rightful owners of the land of Israel (Ezekiel 35:5, 10; 36:2, 5). It wasn't until the Jews began migrating back to Palestine in hopes of declaring Israeli statehood that the Arab world laid claim to the land. Before that, it was of no value to them.
    * The desert land of Israel will bloom again during this last generation (Luke 21:29-31; Isaiah 41:18-21).
    * The city of Jerusalem recaptured by Israel 19 years later in 1967 (Zechariah 8:7-8; 12:3). Jerusalem couldn't be a stumbling block to peace with Israel if it wasn't back in their hands.
    * A Middle East peace plan with Israel, where Jerusalem is considered a major stumbling block will develop in the last days (Daniel 9:27; Zechariah 12:3).
    * This peace plan with Israel will ultimately have a seven-year time limit (Daniel 9:27). Virtually every Middle East peace plan calls for a timeline for which peace must be established. The splitting of Jerusalem will be the final jewel of the peace accord.
    * The ruins of Israel will be rebuilt (Amos 9:11 &13). This has kicked into high gear since Israel became a nation (1948).
    * An eastern nation capable of fielding a 200 million man army (Revelation 9:16) will arise during the Tribulation Period. No nation has ever been able to field an army of this magnitude until this generation.
    * The Euphrates River will be dried up to enable a great army to cross (Revelation 16:12). This could not be done until 1990 without the help of modern day technology.
    * During this generation, man will obtain the ability to view an event simultaneously all over the world (Revelation 11:9-10). Certainly, this was impossible until satellite technology was invented during this generation.
    * Russia, Iran, a host of northern African nations, and the surrounding Islamic world will forge an alliance and attack Israel (Ezekiel 38 & 39). Today, most of these nations (listed in Ezekiel 38) are already in an alliance with each other.
    * World leaders will begin talking abut world governance as a necessary evil. This will eventually lead to a one world government led by the Antichrist (Revelation 13). If you are a frequent reader of mine, you know that this is happening as I write. The first significant world body called the United Nations was created in 1945 to encourage global cooperation. Today, they have more power global power than anytime in their history.
    * The temple will be rebuilt (Revelation 11:1, 2; Daniel 9:27). This is yet future, but it is a foregone conclusion that various temple organizations, once the okay to rebuild is given, will have it completed within months.
    * The Antichrist will rise up out of the New Roman Empire known today as the European Union (Daniel 9:27).
    * In the last days, knowledge will increase dramatically (Daniel 12:4). There is no debating the fact that knowledge has increased in leaps and bounds over the last 100 years, but particularly during the last 70-80 years. Medicine and technological discoveries have exploded in this last generation.
    * Earthquakes will increase in strength and intensity as we head toward the rapture of the church and the beginning of the tribulation period (Mark 13:8). Just in the last few years we have seen major earthquakes in Chile, Haiti, New Zealand, Indonesia, and Japan that have claimed hundreds of thousands of lives. The years 2000-2010 was named the most deadly and destructive decade for global natural disasters in history and earthquakes claimed the most lives of all the natural disasters. Even secular world news reports acknowledge that we have had an increase in freakish natural disasters over the last ten years.
    * In the days unrest among the nations will breakout (Mark 13:8) with troubles. This trouble and unrest is currently spreading throughout the Middle East (April 2, 2011) and is a sign of the nearest of the coming of the Lord.

    It's during this narrow block of time that all these prophecies are beginning to or already have come to past. We are very close to the rapture and the start of the tribulation period. If a Biblical generation is indeed as Psalm 90:10 states, between 70-80 years, we are already 68 years into the final years of this last generation. This last generation began in 1948 when Israel became a nation. If we add 70 years (2018) or 80 years (2028) to our proposed starting date and subtract 7 years for the tribulation period we come up with a date between 2011 and 2021. It's also very likely that there will be a gap of time (2-3 yrs) between the rapture of the church and the start of the tribulation period. Are you ready for the rapture of the church? Are you sure you are going when the Lord calls Christians home? There's only one way you will be taken in the rapture and it's the same way you can know that you are going to heaven when you die. You must be born again (John 3:3). Just having knowledge or a belief in God is not enough. You must have a personal relationship with the Lord. That all starts with a complete surrender of your life to the Lord from this day forward. Repent of your sins, believe that Jesus died on the cross to pay your sin penalty, and that He rose again. Trust in the Lord from this day forward and live for Him.

    While those who truly grasp the lateness of the hour and what the issues and events of these strange, troubled times mean, there is the overwhelming majority that hasn’t a clue. There are millions upon millions of others who are within Christendom, that is, who claim to be under the umbrella of Christianity. Most of these, statistics bear out, would not qualify as “Christian” under the definition of being “born again.” That is, they haven’t truly “believed” as given in Romans 10:9-10. Among those who are truly born again, there are many views of how things will play out, prophetically speaking. At the same time, there are also many who don’t know and many who don’t care about prophecy–what God has foretold about their future. They are too busy living out their increments of life one heartbeat and breath at a time. Sadly, the latter by far constitute the majority. That is, most don’t know about Bible prophecy, and most don’t care. They are aided and abetted in their willful ignorance by the pastors and Bible teachers within their church bodies in this disregard for the prophetic portion of God’s Word. That prophetic Word is almost one-third of the Scripture the Lord has given us through His Love Letter to mankind.

    It's in America that this attitude of not embracing the Rapture among Christians is most pronounced. Not desiring the Rapture is, for American believers, as natural as breathing. Life in the United States is not bad, and for the most part, pretty comfortable. Compared to living as a Christian in, say, the Middle East, Africa, or other parts of the world, being a Christian requires that no heavy price be paid. That's what I mean when I say it's as natural as breathing. When American Christians in this category do think of the Rapture, they fear it will take them away from the pleasures of this earthly life. That event will, they think, snatch them from their comfortable American lifestyle and cause them to lose homes, family closeness, friendships, other relationships, and their “stuff, all of which provides familiarity and pleasure. How sad for these people that they and their families will, in the very near future, "experience great suffering, the kind that hasn't happened from the beginning of the world until now and certainly won't ever happen again". Don't be foolish and get LEFT BEHIND, "Watch therefore, and pray always, that you may be accounted worthy to ESCAPE ALL these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man".

    Playtime is definitely over.

    CONVERGENCE of the End Time Signs.

    Bible Prophecy fulfillment is in a period of acceleration, a time of Quickening. As the world is racing towards Armageddon, America is racing towards it's imminent DESTRUCTION.

    We have entered a time like no other time, a time that no man has ever seen, a time like no other time in the history of this world, the End Times. Since the dawn of mankind, there have always been wars and rumors of wars, earthquakes, famines, pestilences, disease, strange-weather and false Christ's just as Jesus predicted. Fast forward nearly 2,000 years since Jesus made this prediction, and you have today's headlines lining up exactly with the Word of God. The big thing isn't that these events are happening today. The big thing is that they are all happening at the very same time to bring this world that's already teetering over the edge into the abyss, to a point of no return! Bible prophecy is being fulfilled right before our very eyes. Fulfilled prophecy is increasing in frequency and intensity just like birth pains, and Jesus said when you see these know that I am near, even at the door. This is the LAST GENERATION. As far back as 2500 years ago, the Bible predicted the prophecies that we are experiencing in this very hour. These prophecies began when once again Israel became a nation (1948). In fact, the Bible is clear, once Israel became a nation, this generation would not pass away before we would see the Second Coming of Christ (Matthew 24:4-34). It's fascinating that the Bible would predict, 2500 years in advance, the starting point and the ending point of the last generation. The starting point being the rebirth of Israel and the ending point being the Second Coming of Christ.

    More than 2,500 years ago, God gave the prophet Ezekiel an astonishing prophecy to give to the world, one that would be fulfilled in this "LAST GENERATION". The prophesied events found in Ezekiel 38 and 39, could be fulfilled in the immediate future. We are already witnessing the stage being set and the actors being moved into place, in light of current events happening in the Middle East, right now. Within a few months, maybe a year, the war of Psalm 83/Isaiah 17 will take place. The IDF will be the victor. This victory will infuriate ISRAEL'S remaining enemies, causing Russia, Iran, and an alliance of Muslim nations invade Israel (Ezekiel 38-39). For 19 centuries, the Jewish people were scattered throughout the world, and until May 14, 1948, there was no nation of Israel to invade. With the nation of Israel now a reality, the stage is being set for the Gog & Magog war that will usher in the Tribulation and the rise of the Antichrist; a war that will end with the destruction of Israel's enemies by God Himself, and lead to the signing of a peace treaty with the Antichrist. America isn't mentioned in prophecy pertaining to this Last Generation because "America Will Soon Cease To Exist". Frightened men can manipulate Scripture, however, the Scripture is clear:"And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for ALL people: ALL that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though ALL the people of the earth be gathered together against it". (Zechariah 12:3) "And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy ALL the nations that come against Jerusalem". (Zechariah 12:9 )

    Reality is also very clear, America is the "Chief Instigator" and carries the heaviest burden in DEFIANCE of God in relation to the dividing of His Land, ISRAEL, and His Holy City, JERUSALEM. If a Biblical generation is indeed as Psalm 90:10 states, between 70-80 years, we are already 68 years into the final years of this last generation. It's very likely that there will be a gap of time (2-3 yrs) between the Rapture of the church and the start of the Tribulation Period. There's only one way you will be taken in the Rapture and it's the same way you can know that you are going to heaven when you die. You must be "Born Again"(John 3:3). Wake up people, it's no coincidence that out of the last 2500 years it is within this 70-80 year time span since the re-birth of ISRAEL that these prophecies have begun to take shape. Get ready, because when it hits the fan, it’s going to hit hard and fast. Life as we know it will NEVER return to what we know as normal. The judgment of God is coming, and soon. Prepare your hearts and look up, for our redemption really IS drawing nigh! Playtime is definitely over.

    Trending Toward Tribulation

    "Many signs seem to indicate that the world is trending toward the Tribulation period and only a few are aware of how close it is to becoming a fundamentally changed global police state. Billions will perish".

    Are You Ready for the Rapture?


    The Rapture itself will also arrive suddenly and without warning for believers who are not watching for their Lord's return and are not paying attention to the Signs Of The Times. Likewise, the events that will take place after the Rapture, which will include the Tribulation portion of the Day of the Lord, will arrive suddenly and without warning for unbelievers who are obviously not watching for the Lord's return at all.

    Today more than ever, so-called Evangelicals are increasingly becoming dismissive of Bible Prophecy because they believe it is a fool’s errand, that Christ may never return, or that it impedes their ability to enact cultural change through the social gospel. This is promulgated in the Reformed Theology groups as well as thru the Prosperity Gospel and Emergent Church movements. It’s like it has become popular again in Christendom, to no longer care if or when Christ will return, as if it is some distraction we needn’t concern ourselves with.

    Christ Will Return

    The Bigger One Is Coming


    Since a lot of people think quakes are triggered by each other, the recent earthquake in Alaska and Mexico have caused the focus of prognosticators to shift to the western coast of America
    .

    February 8, 2016

    There has been a growing interest in earthquake activity on social media. I’ve run across several sites that speculate about where and when the next big earthquake will take place. Since a lot of people think quakes are triggered by each other, the recent earthquake in Alaska and Mexico have caused the focus of prognosticators to shift to the western coast of America.

    The “Big One” has long been seen as a future earthquake of a magnitude of 8.0 or greater. Scientists have predicted this seismic event will happen along the massive San Andreas Fault. Over the years, countless movies have been made that show the city of Los Angeles being leveled by this looming disaster.

    However, the eruption of the San Andreas Fault may not live up to its anticipated blow-out reputation. The fault, at its closest point is 35 miles north of Los Angeles. Since the San Andrea runs through dryer and less populated areas of California, secondary faults like the Puente Hills Fault or the San Jacinto may be a greater risk to southern segments of the state.

    Another limiting factor for a great calamity in L.A. is the California building code. Because the city is prone to large quakes, most structures are designed to withstand a major seismic event. If a magnitude 5.0 trembler should strike the Hollywood area, it would be a one day news story. If a quake of the same strength were to strike the eastern coast of America, all kinds of damage would take place.

    It is not easy to exactly determine America’s most dangerous fault zone. The New Madrid fault is capable of shaking vast areas of the southern Mississippi valley. Because the bedrock of this fault is hidden beneath 100 - 200 foot thick layers of soft river deposited soils, we have no way to directly measure it.

    The fault with the greatest threat to life is probably the Cascadia subduction zone. This fault is located about seventy miles off the Pacific Northwest Coast. It stretches seven hundred miles from California to Vancouver in Canada.

    When the Cascadia Fault erupts, a mega-tsunami will sweep across the Pacific Ocean. We know from history that a tsunami event is the most deadly result of an earthquake. Very few people died from the shaking produced by the magnitude 9.0 earthquake that occurred off the coast of Indonesia in 2004, however, the waves generated by that quake killed 240,000 people.

    A 9.0 earthquake on the Cascadia Fault would strike the Pacific Northwest coast with waves as high as 50 feet. Residents of many communities would have less than 20 minutes to find higher ground. Since we never had a major tsunami in North America, few people would know how to react if one struck.

    A Cascadia earthquake would easily be the worst natural disaster in American history. FEMA projects that nearly 13,000 people will die. Another 27,000 will be injured, and the agency expects that it will need to provide shelter for a million displaced people.

    The City of Seattle would be hit hard by the quake. It has the misfortune of being on soft soil and located on a shallow shoreline. Seattle area buildings that were not damaged by the seismic shaking would be at risk from the tsunami waves.

    A key reason why the Cascadia Fault Zone comes to mind is because an earthquake on this fault is long overdue. Last month marked the 316-year anniversary of one of the greatest earthquakes on record along the Pacific Coast; the estimated 9.2 “Cascadia” quake that struck on January 26, 1700. Since a quake occurs on this fault once every 240 years, we are now 76 years past the average.

    I have noticed that several fault zones around the world are strangely long overdue in producing a major earthquake. The San Francisco bay area; the U.S. Pacific Coast and southern segments of the state; Tokyo, Japan; Jakarta, Indonesia; the holy city of Jerusalem are all on borrowed time. I can only guess that God is storing up wrath for the Tribulation hour. It is my hope that believers living in the Pacific Northwest will soon be transported to a higher ground that no tsunami can reach.

    “And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.

    And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh” (Luke 21:8-11, 25-28).
