Are you hungry yet?
It’s not a question parents have to ask kids like I was while growing up. I was always hungry, so the question was one I didn’t hear until I was probably fully grown and married. Now the question’s as common as: What would you like for dinner? Or, here in the South: What’s for supper?
“Are you hungry yet?” seems a uniquely adult question, posed in anticipation of engaging in an almost ritualistic exercise—that of sitting down to a meal that, in many cases, includes family and/or friends in enjoyable fellowship around the table.
Children sometimes have to be ordered to stop playing—more digital games these days than outdoors play like in the past—in order to get them to eat. Adults—those not so addicted to the same cyberspace pursuits—grow hungry through the sights and aromas that tell them suppertime is at hand. The stomachs rumble a bit, the salivary glands kick in, the brain sounds the dinner bell, and off we go to the supper table.
And, yes, I’m sadly aware that in today’s America, family dinner is often consumed while each diner sits at his or her own meal while continuing to engage in whatever entertainment he or she chooses. I’m thinking nostalgically, I suppose, considering how things used to be and how I wish they would continue.
As poor as the choice of segue I’ve used here might be, I hope it might help us think about how the sights, sounds, aromas, etc., of this present hour are acting upon our senses that alert us to spiritual hunger.
Particularly, I want to turn to thoughts of how near we are to one special meal that will have us all sitting at one table—perhaps my nostalgic wish fulfilled, exponentially.
So, the question again is: “Are you hungry yet?” Do you sense that spiritual burn somewhere deep within that says it’s almost suppertime?
The sounds, sights, smells, and every condition surrounding us at this moment should alert us that Heaven is about to call us to that great supper. Despite the vile, end-times odors that offend, God’s prophetic Word acts as a filter so the student of Bible prophecy can smell the cooking from Heaven’s kitchen.
We’ve covered the senses-offending matters for a long time now. Each of the things Jesus and the prophets foretold are heating to the point of becoming painful to endure: Israel on the verge of war for survival, with pressures to give God’s Land for peace; the powerful drive for a global New World Order; the deceivers and great deception; wars and rumors of war; the development of AI and other technologies that threaten to enslave; the reprobate evil that is Sodom-like, with even some Christian pastors and churches refusing to resist—all tells us that Great Supper is at hand.
I write this, of course, especially in regard to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. So let’s look at that magnificent heavenly feast that awaits.
Although there are differing views on this event, which will bring all believers together at the Lord’s table, I believe Dr. Thomas Ice has it right. He is the head of the PreTrib Study Group that meets annually at Dallas. This is the conference established by Dr. Tim LaHaye and Dr. Ice, of which I remain a member.
Many believe the Marriage Supper of the Lamb is the same event as the Marriage of the Lamb. Dr. Ice correctly interprets God’s prophetic Word in this regard.
“Let us rejoice and be glad and give the glory to Him, for the marriage of the Lamb has come and His bride has made herself ready.” And it was given to her to clothe herself in fine linen, bright and clean; for the fine linen are the righteous acts of the saints. And he said to me, “Write, ‘Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.'” And he said to me, “These are true words of God.”
It is at this point that many Christians today often confuse the marriage of the Lamb with the marriage supper of the Lamb. But they are two separate events that occur at two different times in history. Revelation 19:9 says, “Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.” This passage clearly has a forward look anticipating a future time. It cannot refer to anyone in heaven since the church (the bride) is the only redeemed entity in heaven. However, after the second coming when believers from other ages will be resurrected (Dan. 12:2) along with tribulation saints, both mortal and resurrected ones (Rev. 20:4), these will be the invited guest who will be guests at this celebration supper. I believe that the marriage supper will be during the first part of the millennial reign of Christ. Fruchtenbaum says:
Hence, the “many” who are bidden to attend the marriage feast on earth are all the Old Testament saints and the Tribulation saints resurrected after the Second Coming. While the marriage ceremony will take place in heaven, the marriage feast will take place on earth after the Second Coming. In fact, it would seem that the marriage feast is what begins the Millennium or the Messianic Kingdom; the Church’s co-reigning with the Messiah will start with a tremendous marriage feast. (Dr. Arnold Fruchtenbaum, Footsteps of the Messiah, p. 597)
Though the marriage of the Lamb to His bride (the church) and the marriage supper of the Lamb are closely related, they are separate events, just as the wedding ceremony and the wedding reception of our day are separate events. In fact, these two events are often held at two different locations, just as the marriage of the Lamb will be in heaven right before the second coming (Rev. 19), while the marriage supper of the Lamb will commence with the beginning of the millennium. (“The Marriage Supper of the Lamb, Dr. Thomas Ice, www.pre-trib.org)
There is so much involved in this coming gathering of all the saints of the ages that the differences of opinion are myriad in trying to know all details. Suffice it to say that it will be a grand and glorious coming together of a family more intimate than that of the best gathering human families have ever enjoyed.
You can almost smell the heavenly cuisine being prepared, can’t you?
Are you hungry yet?
Tracking toward the Tribulation Temple
Stage setting for prophetic fulfillment surrounding all things Israel unfolds while we continue to examine developments on an hour-by-hour basis.
There continues to be constant intrigues involving interactions around and upon Moriah, with Muslim-Jewish contentions keeping an atmosphere for potential war brewing. Yet there is a drumbeat to produce peace, with hostile insistence at its core that Israel give in to enemy demands.
Incoming rockets, intended to weaken Israel’s resolve to resist the need to make peace, only hardens IDF dedication to punish the terrorist organizations. We get reports often of IDF forces taking out their leaders with precision drones and other strikes. Too many times, American mainstream media and left-wing political entities take the side of the Israel-hating enemies of the Jewish state.
Yet preparation continues for a time when, the religious factions in Israel believe, peace will reign and worship can again take place on the Temple Mount.
At present, that seems to be a pipe dream. Any such attempt to reestablish worship by the Jews on the Temple Mount would certainly bring down the wrath of all Islam. Yet the preparation continues.
The most previous Jewish Temple was destroyed in AD 70 when General Titus and the Roman legions tore down every stone of the structure. This was exactly as Jesus had foretold while teaching on the Mount of Olives. However, the Lord, while speaking during that discourse, indicated there will be a future Temple–the one the “abomination of desolation” (Antichrist) would sit in, declaring himself to be God.
So there must be a Third Temple—God Himself has said so.
We have watched developments, as stated above, intensely examining everything surrounding modern Israel. For example, we’ve seen that the implements of worship in that future Temple are already prepared. The red heifers have apparently been produced that will act as cleansing purification in the worship process. Even a rail system is in preparation that, the experts say, is meant to bring Jews in from around the world to the Temple Mount once the edifice is constructed.
In the latest regard for that construction, the following item is of interest:
Haim Dotan, an acclaimed architect who has won several international awards and also serves as a professor of architecture at leading institutes in China, recently became involved in the ambitious project of designing the third Jewish temple in Jerusalem.
Known for his extravagant projects, such as the Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon Glass Bridge in China—renowned as the tallest glass-bottomed bridge in the world—Dotan last year joined the right-wing activist and literature scholar Professor Hillel Weiss and pitched a session of the Jerusalem International Conference: “From the Umbilicus Mundi to the Four Corners of the Earth and Back.”
The conference, scheduled to take place this summer in Jerusalem, will be organized by the Yad Ben Zvi Institute, a prestigious research center in Israel. Dotan’s pitch, “Building Jerusalem, the temple city, and the road to peace,” was divided into three sections.
The first was dedicated to the transportation and economy of the future “temple city” of the Israeli capital. The next pitch, entitled “From Vision to Practice,” described future plans for the Jerusalem of the Third Temple era, inspired by biblical sources.
“In the center of the plan, an open structure will be built above the Old City of Jerusalem. It will be shaped like a tent, a cloud, or a mountain. Six or eight bridges will connect constructive towers which will combine stairways and elevators, supporting upper Jerusalem,” the outline seen by i24NEWS stated…
This may be another far-fetched attempt that is ignored by authorities, but the fact that a prestigious architect – who is secular and doesn’t have any political background – is involved in such a project makes this case all the more interesting, if not more tangible.
Plans to rebuild the third Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount, the holiest site in Judaism and the third holiest in Islam, are not new but have mostly faced strong resistance. In 1990, a deadly riot erupted on the Mount after a fringe Jewish group tried to lay the cornerstone of a third temple. (“The architect and activist who want to build Jerusalem’s third temple,” by Uri Shapira, senior producer, Holy Land Uncovered, I24NEWS, May 19, 2023)
David, king of Israel, wanted to build a house wherein God could reside. Jehovah, who called David “a man after my own heart,” proposed the question of whether He could be contained in such a structure. The answer, of course, was, “No.” Of course not.
The Lord did appreciate the thought, though, obviously. He told David that he couldn’t build a place where God could dwell among His people because David had too much blood on his hands from all the wars he had fought to defend Israel and acquire land God gave the chosen people.
Instead, God told David that Solomon, David’s son, would build God such a dwelling place.
The Temple Solomon built had at its heart the Holy of Holies, a fifteen-foot cubed inner sanctum that housed the Ark of the Covenant, the elaborately prepared container wherein the Shekinah glory, the very presence of God, would dwell.
That spot is still somewhere upon the Temple Mount—Mt Moriah, most scholars believe. Religious Jews are still afraid to walk upon the Temple Mount grounds for fear of accidentally treading upon that one spot on earth where God chose to reside.
The Temple and the Holy of Holies constituted God’s touchstone to humanity—and particularly to the Jews. It is the place where Abraham was to offer Isaac before God Intervened with the ram caught by its horns in a thicket, thus providing the sacrifice Abraham made to the God of Heaven.
Not far from the spot of the Holy of Holies is Golgotha, where Jesus Christ hung on the cross. When Christ died, the veil in the Temple’s Holy of Holies tore from top to bottom, giving people direct access to God the Father through that Sacrifice.
Solomon’s Temple, then, was the First Temple. It was the most glorious in beauty; it stunned even the queen of Sheba when her eyes fell upon its splendor. Nebuchadnezzar destroyed it in 587 BC.
The building of the Second Temple took place following Israel’s Babylonian captivity. It lasted from 516 BC to AD 70. It became known as Herod’s Temple when it was commissioned by the king to be greatly expanded in size and beauty.
As stated earlier, this Temple was destroyed by the Roman military in AD 70.
The Third Temple is foretold to be in place during the last seven years of human history prior to Christ’s return. Daniel prophesied about Antichrist: “…in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease” (Daniel 9:27b) This last, most vicious, tyrant will enter the Third Temple and desecrate it.
This Tribulation Temple, like all other developments toward fulfilling the coming seven years of hell on earth Bible prophecy calls Daniel’s seventieth week, can be constructed very quickly, according to those who study the matters involved. Many believe, as do I, that the rebuilding of the Temple will be a major stipulation for getting Israel to agree to a peace covenant with its blood-vowed enemies–the covenant “made with death and hell.” (Isaiah 28:15, 18).
Those seven years of horror must be very near. All who are left behind following the Rapture will have to endure the time Jesus, Himself, said will be the worst time of all human history (Matthew 24:21).
As we always say, you don’t want to be here during that time of horror worse than even the death camps of Hitler, Stalin, and Mao. Here again is how to be ready to go to Jesus when He calls in the Rapture.
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. (Romans 10:9–10)
Anti-Bible Attack Dogs
At this late hour at the end of the age, it’s obvious to anyone who’s truly attuned to God’s Word and is watching as instructed by the Lord (Mark 13: 37): Christ’s call in the Rapture must be very near. Proof includes that Heaven’s enemy has, it is clear, unleashed the “attack dogs” against God’s Holy Word.
Those “hounds of hell” have chosen a well-known animal-activist entity, whose name by reputation seems nonthreatening while Satan moves forward with his devilish plan. And it seems quite sad, because the organization has done, I presume without knowing very much about it, at least some level of good through its services.
Again we see the rapidly growing—and I believe intrinsically evil—AI technology coming to the forefront of society and culture. Those who are determined to insinuate their controlling, bullying influence have chosen to, through AI, directly attack the Word of God. The following illustrates that the attack dogs have been unleashed in a major way:
Once again, the Left is trying to appropriate the Bible for its own political purposes, this time with the help of artificial intelligence.
Yes, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals last week published a rather milquetoast rewrite of the book of Genesis entitled “The Book: PETA’s Version of the Creation Story.”
The result is inherently offensive, occasionally a tad funny, but ultimately rather underwhelming…
PETA—or the AI, which I’m convinced probably provided the best bits of this dilapidated drivel—decided to be slavishly derivative, repeating original locations and keeping the rough structure of Genesis, while simultaneously scrapping the main theological message of the story and the major plot points that give the inspired Word its emotional heft.
In this incredibly sanitized version of the Bible, Cain isn’t a murderer, Nimrod stops being a hunter, Hagar is a chef, a dog takes the place of Isaac on Mount Moriah and there is no sacrifice, Pharaoh’s butler and baker both live, and Pharaoh’s dreams involve vegan preaching, not the famine responsible for reuniting Jacob’s family. Somewhere between the AI and the wokescolds at PETA, basic details got lost.
For instance, Rachel dies in childbirth with Joseph, rather than with his younger brother Benjamin (Genesis 35), and Benjamin miraculously appears as an elder brother to Joseph. Cain—still the villain of the story—sacrifices animal flesh to God while Abel sacrifices plants, which represents a reversal of the biblical story in which Abel sacrifices his prized sheep. PETA might as well have made Abel the villain, especially since it decided to scrap the murder, anyway.
Most of the main characters—who have rather tremendous flaws in the original version of Genesis—are all morally spotless priests of the vegan religion here, preaching the virtues of soy and almond milk. They go from place to place, spreading the gospel of treating animals like people, and occasionally the animals speak on their own accord. (At one point, camels decide among themselves to teach the uneducated humans, but then decide just to travel with them, instead.)
Joseph’s brothers still decide to kidnap and sell their brother out of jealousy, but they also wouldn’t dare harm a goat to dip his multicolored coat in goat’s blood. Instead, they use beet juice. Yes, they contemplate murdering their own brother, but God forbid they touch an animal…
It seems that whoever at PETA rewrote Genesis lost interest after the first few chapters, letting AI do the rest. (“PETA Teams Up with AI to Rewrite the Bible, Tyler O’Neil/Daily Signal, May 16, 2023)
Some would view all this as drivel, as the writer puts it—just tongue-in-cheek fun-poking. But the God whose Son paid the price for all the sin of the world in the most horrific, humiliating way imaginable, I must believe, finds little humor here.
Neither is the serpent’s intention tongue-in-cheek. He wants to steal truth from and destroy every human being. He fully intends to do so in part by deceiving humans into thinking that neither he nor God even exists. Destroying the veracity of God’s Word is one of the chief ways he is trying to achieve his plan of destroying the human race.
Jesus is the Word.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. (John 1:1–4)
Jesus said that, despite all of the devils’ attempts to destroy those who follow the Lord, we shouldn’t fear or be distracted. He, Jesus, has overcome the world (as well as the flesh and the devil).
Satan and all of Hell’s attack dogs will never destroy the Word of God. We have our Lord’s promise.
Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. (Matthew 24: 35)
End of All Flesh?
Jesus’ words of fearsome times to come have reverberated from the Mount of Olives since the hour He looked down upon the Temple while answering His disciples’ question about the end of the age. None of those words more encapsulated just how horrific things would be leading up to His return to planet Earth.
And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened. (Matthew 24:2)
Like most who study Bible prophecy, I’ve thought the world’s nuclear arsenals would bring humankind to the brink of total annihilation as described here by the Lord. This, of course, could still be the case. Just one of America’s nuclear-equipped submarines, it is said, has more firepower within its hull than all of the explosives detonated in World War II—including the bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Can you imagine what devastation all-out nuclear war could unleash?
So, it isn’t a far stretch to believe that Jesus, the greatest of all prophets, could have been talking about nuclear devastation in our present time on this judgment-doomed sphere.
While that could still be the case, I was reminded this past week that nuclear war isn’t the only methodology that might bring humanity to the point that all flesh will be in danger of being completely destroyed. The scientific geniuses amongst our numbers are proving more and more to have the same reprobate mindset as the general population of rebels who have turned their backs to God. And even more troubling, many among those of the scientific community are observably “evil men [and women] and seducers” who continue to grow worse and worse.
We have witnessed, I believe, an effort by that community to join in the globalist intention to bring the planet into a sustainable configuration—the carbon footprint-controlled New World Order championed by England’s newly coronated king.
We remember the one-world-order Georgia Guidestone edifice inscribed with an expression of the desire to bring the earth’s population down to a “sustainable” five hundred million. Its strange destruction and removal—with almost no notice of that removal by the usually avid, pro-sustainable, climate-change champions of international media—hasn’t been addressed by way of explanation since.
It seemed that the COVID-19 pandemic and the vaccine-mandate hoopla were somehow involved in the that monument’s declaration. The evidence continues to mount that the effort to eliminate human flesh from the population count remains with us to this late hour. Science, which we are told we must trust, doesn’t seem to be on the side of continuation of humanity.
Consider the following:
Late on January 29, 2023, eminent MIT Professor and respected expert on drug safety analytics, Dr. Retsef Levi, placed a video on his Twitter. In it, he calls for the immediate suspension of all mRNA injections. Here are his words introducing the video:
“The evidence is mounting and indisputable that mRNA vaccines cause serious harm including death, especially among young people. We have to stop giving them immediately!” (“Worldwide Phenomenon of Sudden Deaths: The Level of Denial and Deception Is Mindboggling,” Jonathan Brentner, https://harbingersdaily.com/worldwide-phenomenon-of-sudden-deaths-the-level-of-denial-and-deception-is-mindboggling/)
But even the unleashing of virulent pestilences, with, some believe, the complicit efforts of those within America’s clandestine cabals, doesn’t tell the entirety of suspected intrigue involved.
Now a potential evil feared to threaten human life itself is developing—and at a pace that terrifies even some of the scientific community who are working on the creation of the AI technologies.
In late March, no lesser mortal human beings than Goldman Sachs equity research took a deep dive into the implications of AI for the world (and beyond). The magnum opus led readers through the evolution of AI… Their shocking conclusion: AI will lead one-third of a billion layoffs (at least) in the US and Europe. Think of it as the mobilization of the service sector. The safety risks around AI are huge, and we think there is a more than 50/50 chance AI will wipe out all of humanity by the middle of the century. (“There’s A Greater-Than-50% Chance AI Wipes Out All of Humanity by 2050, One Advisory Finds,” https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/theres-greater-50-chance-ai-wipes-out-all-humanity-2050-one-advisory-finds.)
More and more, the scientists involved in this burgeoning thing called artificial intelligence are warning of the unknowns that will occur when machine melds with human. We wonder if those responsible for the future of AI are intent on making the global elite “become as gods”—as the serpent promised Eve in the Garden of Eden.
Perhaps this is what Jesus meant, at least in part, when he said the words quoted above:
And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.
So we can be assured that it will not be the end of all flesh. Jesus will preempt Satan’s ability to devour the whole human race. We believe that this preemption—the Rapture of His Church—might take place at any moment! Then, God will Himself control the attempts of Satan to eliminate the human race during the seven years of hell on earth.
Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
The UFO phenomenon, in terms of mainstream thinking, is a late-comer to the accumulating end-of-the-age prophetic signals, even though it has long been at the heart of fictional and fanciful curiosity, particularly since the invention of radio.
Although a few films of the silent-movie era fed the fascination, it was H. G. Wells’ War of the Worlds play, presented on radio by Orson Welles in 1938, that really lit the imagination of Americans and subsequently the rest of mankind.
Perhaps you will indulge my longtime fascination with just how the entire matter of otherworldliness, in terms of outer space and beyond, might play into fulfillment of Bible prophecy.
We’ve gone into things concerning UFOs and other matters a number of times before. As some know, I’ve written two fictional accounts of what the 1947 Roswell UFO incident involved. My good friend Gary Ritter, a terrific novelist, and I, co-wrote a third novel about developments in extraterrestrial matters that have unfolded since. The series, titled The Second-Coming Chronicles, include The Rapture Dialogues; The Nephilim Imperatives; and The Minion Protocols.
It is true that many who want to know what God’s Word has to say about the wrap-up of human history look at fiction as not being important because it is…well…fiction. However, it’s appropriate to note that even Jesus used parables to frame truth. He and the prophets used stories to make points that were stunningly effective in making an impact on the listeners.
I refer, for example, to the prophet Nathan, who pointed his bony finger in King David’s face after the prophet told him about someone in the kingdom who had stolen a lamb from a poor man who had almost nothing. Remember what Nathan told the king after David had become furious and said he would deal harshly with the thief? He said: “You are that man.”
David’s great sin was, of course, committing adultery with Bathsheba, impregnating her, then sending for her husband from the battlefield to try to cover up his sin. David then, when Bathsheba’s husband refused to go to his wife because of his honor to not indulge in pleasure while his fellow soldiers were fighting, sent her husband to the front lines where he was almost certain to die—which he did.
So stories—fiction—can point to truth in a most effective way.
This is why we present these novels, including the fictional accounts of the UFO phenomena that point to a truth that is shaping for fulfilling a specific prophecy.
My post’s title, “WOE,” I hope will help make my point in regard to explaining the shaping-up for fulfillment that’s taking place as related to the UFO phenomenon that is suddenly front and center.
The acronym stands for “War on Earth-dwellers” and is based on the prophecy John was given when writing the Revelation. The first part of that prophecy states:
And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. (Revelation 12:7–10)
The next part is most terrifying for those left behind after the Rapture:
Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time. (Revelation 12:12)
Now, with the US government suddenly divulging that, yes, there is reason to believe some of the “Unidentified Aerial Phenomena” (UAPs, changed for their purposes from “Unidentified Flying Objects,” or UFOs) might be other than terrestrial in origin, it is more possible than ever to apply these signs in the heavens to future prophetic fulfillment. This possible application is something I and others have been suggesting for a number of years.
My own postulation, based on careful consideration of the follow-up chapter to chapter 12 and Satan’s being cast out of Heaven forever, is that when Lucifer’s defeated force begins the fall to earth, as John is told to write, the following prophecy will come into view:
And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. (Revelation 13:13–14)
The world, in other words, is perhaps being set up at this time—with the release of validation by governments that extraterrestrials likely exist—to have an explanation for the disappearance of millions. Part of the 2 Thessalonians chapter 2 delusion of earth-dwellers might allow people to be deceived into believing visitors from extraterrestrial worlds are coming to help Antichrist and the False Prophet fix things.
Of course, the operative acronym for what will in actuality be taking place will be WOE: “War on earth-dwellers.” It will indeed be “woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.”
We can, I suspect, anticipate seeing a substantial increase in reports of UAPs from the New World Order builders within the US government and beyond.
Hopefully you will again let me indulge in just a tad of commercialism, in asking that you consider our series on UFOs. Although fiction, I believe these stories can somewhat lay the groundwork in informing about what is coming in absolute fact, according to God’s prophetic Word.
Here is how to get these books that help, in fictional form, give some understanding about these strange times so near Christ’s call to the Church.
The Rapture Dialogues (Book #1):
The Nephilim Imperatives (Book #2):
The Minion Protocols (Book #3):
For your reference, here is the Kindle ebook version of the combined novels into what we deem the Virtual Box Set of The Second Coming Chronicles:
The bottom line is that neither you, nor those you love, want to be here when these angry, wicked, and defeated warriors are kicked from the heavens for the final time.
Here is how to avoid being here at that terrifying time.
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. (Romans 10:9–10)
This End-of-the-Age Rage
You have to hear it for yourself to understand. It is the manifestation of the reprobate mind—the result of turning one’s back to God and deliberately going in the opposite direction.
The sound, you would think, comes from inside asylums for the insane. But the seeming uncontrollable screeching is heard more and more as lunatic-sounding protests have grown from demonstrations and debates of the past, stemming from a degree of sensibility, to become guttural screams that drown out any counter viewpoint.
The level of enragement that points to the reprobate mind that no longer is willing to hear what God’s Word has to say is wild animal-like—without self-discipline of any sort.
Most of the rage is centered at the heart of the aberrant sexual agenda being foisted at present particularly against the very youngest. The screams are especially steeped at the center of the LGBTQ+ entities and organizations in America.
Although by far in the minority of societal and cultural composition, the shrill howls of animal-like shrieking garner the attention of politicians and courts. A news item perhaps will somewhat describe my intended point.
A transgender activist let out several primal screams at a San Francisco Board of Supervisors meeting last week, after SF District Attorney Brooke Jenkins declined to prosecute a Walgreens security guard who shot Banka Brown, a black transgender individual.
Jenkins declared that “the evidence clearly shows that the suspect believed he was in mortal danger and acted in self-defense.”
[The woman, preferring the pronoun their] expressed their (?) displeasure with an intra-scream diatribe.
“I live in [District 6]. I hate a lot of people on this board…for the reasons that led up to Banka Brown’s death. So, often I prepare something—maybe it’s a little historical, may even be a little poetic, whatever. There’s a lot of performative people on this board who will say one thing and support Black people, homeless people, trans people, and then immediately stab you in the face—being racist, transphobic, anti-homeless.
“So I don’t have any words prepared today. I just want you to feel our pain. I don’t know if you can at this point, based off your policy choices, but I have to pretend you have some form of empathy left. So, I am going to spend the next minute screaming ’cause that is what is going on in here.”
McGeever then gave several primal screams, saying: “That is what the trans genocide in this country, in this city, has brought me to.”
As Jonathan Turley writes: “No, that is what an age of rage has brought all of us to. This entire scream session was due to San Francisco District Attorney Brooke Jenkins announcing that her office would not prosecute Michael-Earl Wayne Anthony, a Walgreens security guard responsible for the shooting death of Banko Brown, a Black member of the transgender community…
“Our politics is now reduced to a collective scream session with zero content beyond pure unadulterated rage.”
As I noted earlier, this trend was previously captured by Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-NY) who is shown on videotape screaming about gun control in the Capitol as his colleagues left the floor following a vote. When Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) asked Bowman to stop yelling, Bowman shouted back: “I was screaming before you interrupted me”—which could go down as the epitaph for our age. (“AAAAAAAAAHHHH”: Trans Activist Unleashes Primal Scream at SF Board Meeting,” Tyler Durden, ZeroHedge, RR News, May 7, 2023)
The screaming was indeed bloodcurdling. Those in control tried to use reason, but their effort was useless. If not insane at the moment, the individual certainly couldn’t be differentiated from someone who had lost their mind–even by a clinical psychologist—in my opinion.
And this is just the latest of a series of such baying-at-the-moon, ear-piercing-type bellowing.
This type of insane rage seems to have had its genesis as an uncontrollable crying and shrieking by a woman who, back in 2016, sat on a curb when she learned that Donald Trump had won the presidential election over her candidate, Hillary Clinton. The demonstration of the loss of sensibility now has become almost a regular feature by both men and women—especially in demonstrations that are protesting on behalf of Sodom-like activities carried on by LGBTQ+ and their lookalikes. These are demonstrating the “reprobate mind” before the whole world—even the world of the woke of San Francisco governmental entities.
For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient.
Seems to me that insane shrieking for minutes on end is not exactly convenient, especially not to the ears that have to listen.
The closer time comes for Christ’s call for the Church to “Come up here!” (Revelation 4:2), the more Sodom-like the enragement manifests.
The end-of-the-age rage is but another strong signal of where this generation stands on God’s prophetic timeline.
He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. (Revelation 22: 20)
The planet is apparently poised for war. If not nuclear war, certainly conventional war on a horrific scale that will soon engulf the world in the thermonuclear sort seems highly possible.
Economies on a global scale, according to a number of fiscal experts, are set to collapse into depression like has never been known. Micro-beasts, as my friend Chuck Missler used to call the microbial agents of pandemics and death, are about to be released either through accidental escape from laboratories or through deliberate actions of the diabolists of the world.
Governments of the Western world—through insane laws, technological surveillance, and militancy—are, in fact, on the verge of bringing about enslavement not unlike governments of George Orwell’s 1984 fictional world.
Experimentation on changing humanity into something akin to chimeras and/or human-machine cyber threatens the human race to go extinct as created. Children are being experimented on at many levels, from being inculcated on becoming transgender to surgical and hormonal bodily transformations that are a threat to future procreation.
The very name of Satan is now on the surface of the culture in America, with after-school Satan Clubs luring children of all ages to join in the activities.
Parents are smoking mad and spewing fire over a new student club at their local elementary school promoting Satan.
The “After School Satan Club” at Golden Hills Elementary School in Kern County has parents outraged.
“I think it’s disgusting, I understand the school has to allow them because they allow other after-school programs such as the good news, which is a Christian-based after-school program, that one I’m okay with, but I can’t imagine why anyone would want their child to attend this Satanic group,” said Sheila Knight, grandparent to a fifth grader at the school, tells local CBS affiliate KBAK.
The club must be allowed under the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, which prohibits government institutions from discriminating on the basis of religious beliefs. Courts have consistently upheld the right of Christian, Jewish, Islamic, atheist and even Satanic groups to meet in schools.
“There’s currently a Good News Club there which is teaching kids to go save souls for Jesus, at the school. We want to give an alternative point of view,” club leader Paul Hicks tells KBAK.
The group is sponsored by The Satanic Temple, known for its publicity stunts, and the “Reason Alliance,” which promotes atheism. (“Parents Outraged Over Satan Club at California Elementary School,” by Donnie Ferguson, American Liberty News, November 23, 2022)
The Satan Clubs are as much as tongue-in-cheek, fad-like entertainment as serious worship of the devil in fact. This makes the Satan Club matter even more egregious, as it inculcates that Satan is just a myth and only to be spoofed. The young are therefore being deluded further into belief that as there is no devil, neither is there a God who governs.
All of this has invaded this earthly sphere at a stunning rate within recent months. It all means the Tribulation is about to begin. We must conclude that humankind’s last seven years before Christ’s return is about to be triggered.
Yet all that sin-heaviness hovers like that proverbial sword of Damocles we’ve mentioned a number of times. That sword remains suspended, although nothing seems to be holding it back from cleaving the thin veil separating rebellious people from the prophetically promised wrath and judgment from Heaven above.
Again, we find the cause of the sword’s suspension in midair as the wickedness grows by the hour.
And now ye know what withholdeth that he [Antichrist] might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he [God the Holy Spirit] who now letteth [Restrains] will let [Restrain], until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked [Antichrist] be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him [Antichrist], whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. (2 Thessalonians 2:6–10)
God the Holy Spirit, resident within each born-again believer in Jesus Christ for salvation, presently keeps the avalanche of this evil bursting fully down upon the planet. That avalanche of evil cannot and will not crash down upon all “earth dwellers” until it is triggered.
First, those who are not “earth dwellers,” but are “citizens of Heaven,” will be removed, thus will be safe from God’s wrath upon all rebellion against Him. When Christ calls to all believers—those who are “asleep” (have died) and those who are alive—the Holy Spirit within each believer will remove much of God’s influence against evil. He will no longer restrain wickedness.
Although it is not the ignition point of the great implosion of God’s judgment and wrath—that point will be the confirming of the covenant of Daniel 9:26–27—it will nonetheless be the trigger that sets off the complete avalanche of evil that will bring about the instrumentality that ignites man’s final seven years of rebellion. It will be the trigger to Tribulation and the rise of Antichrist’s most terrible time of terror.
That trigger, of course, will be the Rapture. It will be the “twinkling of an eye” moment that fulfills Jesus’ great promise to those who believe in Him for salvation.
Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. (Revelation 3:10)
The only way to be kept from that horrendous time when Antichrist wreaks terror and God’s wrath falls on sinful mankind, is to do the following as given by the Apostle Paul:
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation
Those who see God as a grandfatherly teddy bear who sits in Heaven and smiles tolerantly down upon imperfect human beings often argue that God is love and would never send people to an eternity of torment. Most in this category would agree with Pope Francis that even atheists will eventually go to Heaven.
When considering today’s world, while wickedness is on the rise and is the order of the hour, the fallen mind, it can be reasoned, might be justified in reaching such a conclusion. Wickedness pervades societies and cultures around the planet. Those who perpetrate heinous activity seem to get away with their iniquitous behavior. God in Heaven seems to the “God is love only” crowd to be forgiving of all evil—even if repentance isn’t forthcoming.
“A loving God couldn’t send even the Adolf Hitlers and Mao Zedongs to a place of punishment such as the Bible describes” is the mantra. Although such beastly humans are subject to earthly retribution, the retribution is only temporary. The person’s spirit is ultimately absolved of all sins. This is the religiosity behind many in the matter of good vs evil.
“God is only love; that such a deity could harbor no hate” is at the heart of this earth-centered theology.
Of course, those who hang onto this view want no heavenly governance for the most part. They want to be free to do what is right in their own eyes. They don’t want to answer to a deity for their own sins. They will make it to Heaven because a loving God could never send them, or anyone, to the Hell described in the Bible.
And they must at the same time view the Bible as a book that is flawed at the very least—not the Word of God (at least, not of their version of God).
Because they declare that God can’t hate—that He is only love—they must deny that the words of the Bible aren’t the Truth—the very words of the Living God.
You might disagree with my analysis of the type of things God hates, but I thought these are matters we’re all familiar with. Here is why they must deny the Bible to be God’s Word. This is how the writer of Proverbs puts it:
These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him.
- A proud look,
- A lying tongue,
- Hands that shed innocent blood,
- An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations,
- Feet that be swift in running to mischief,
- A false witness that speaketh lies,
- And he that soweth discord among brethren. (Proverbs 6:16–19)
If there is a God who punishes sin with eternal fire in Hell, there is a world full of people at this moment who will not make Heaven without repentance. Let’s look at some of the sins we should be thoroughly familiar with, since we’re inundated with such wickedness at an exponentially increasing rate.
“A proud look”
We remember the actress who held up a performance award she had just won and told Jesus to do something in the most vulgar of terms. Hollywood types and politicians of the anti-God, ideological left often display such prideful blasphemy.
“A lying tongue”
A president—despite absolute, even scientific, DNA evidence—lied that he had never had sex with a young woman, and had only his hand slapped for the lie to a forum before which lying supposedly brings severe punishment.
Additionally, another president continues to have ongoing lies perpetrated against him from opposition politicos, entertainers, and even mainstream news organizations. The Russian collusion hoax continues to haunt our eyes and ears, with other lies just as egregious making their way to the forefront of the crooked election processes of our day.
“Hands that shed innocent blood”
Can there be any among us who are truly innocent other than babies in the wombs of their mothers? Yet their blood continues to be shed by the millions every year in America and around the world. Laws are made just to secure the right to commit this most wicked practice and those who practice abortion as “the right to choose.”
“An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations”
In considering this thing that God hates, we think on the desires of those who want to do wickedness to the youngest of children through exposing them to evil, transvestite, and other sexual perversions. One political party is now controlled by those who want to teach these perversions in classrooms and even to change the genders medically of children while declaring parents who oppose such activity as anarchists. The FBI has joined in the pursuit of such parents who seek to protect their children.
“Feet that be swift in running to mischief”
Black Lives Matter (BLM) comes immediately to mind. Its followers have done billions of dollars in damage to private and public properties—have even burned churches, such as setting on fire the church known as the church of the presidents in Washington, DC.
These and other rioter-organizations, like Antifa, have burned entire portions of inner cities and blocked off certain areas as “off limits” to police.
These, funded by the evilist of globalist minions, run swiftly to any mischief that arises.
“A false witness that speaketh lies”
We recall a Supreme Court nominee who, in the recent past, was subjected to a woman who, it was proven, falsely accused the nominee of sexually assaulting her and other young women many years previous.
Justice Clarence Thomas also went through such false accusations at his hearings, with the current president of the United States, when he was a US senator, leading the false accusations in what has become known as a high-tech lynching.
“And he that soweth discord among brethren.”
For me, this is manifest in those who claim to be of a political party, but run to left-leaning forums, particularly mainstream “progressive” panels such as The View and TV programs at networks, and tell the anti-America, anti-God hosts what they want to hear. This is all to get air time, while throwing their fellow party members under the proverbial bus because of hatreds they hold.
Some would say this is only politics and doesn’t fit God’s condemnation in this sense, but, as I say, to me personally, this is one example of this type of wickedness God hates. I certainly hate it, at any rate.
God is a God of love, absolutely. But He is also a God who is perfectly righteous. He is patient concerning His judgment, but His patience is not without limits. He hates sin in any form and will ultimately destroy it.
With all the wickedness, the evil, we see all around us, we must ask: Is the Lord of Heaven about to bring all of this anti-God activity to an end?
And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him. (Jude 1:14–15)
Before that great judgment, Jesus said the following will happen:
And when you see all these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your head, for your redemption draws near. (Luke 21:28)

The 9 Wars of the End Times
By Dr. David R. Reagan
Book review by Terry James
Anyone who’s heard Dr. David Reagan speak on Bible prophecy understands when I say he has very few peers and no superiors in the ability to hold one’s attention. The same can be said about reading this great teacher’s writings on biblical eschatology.
His scholarship is deeper than most any other of his fellow contemporaries, but sprinkled with humorous inflections that light up the attention as few others can. Whenever Dave Reagan’s name appears on a list of speakers, you can bet that immediate and greatly increased interest is engendered in getting to that conference.
It is my blessing and great privilege to know this man of God as long-time personal friend. So it is with great enthusiasm that I commend his latest work and recommend it to you. This is a volume from which you will gain much new understanding of the big picture presented by Bible prophecy in these times so near the end of the Church Age.
Most Christians seem to be aware of only one end-time war—the Battle of Armageddon. Many students of Bible prophecy seem to be aware of only two end-times wars—Armageddon and the war of Gog and Magog. But there are actually eight or nine end-time wars, depending on whether Psalm 83 is considered one of them. And the Battle of Armageddon is a battle in name only. Dr. Reagan’s book, The 9 Wars of the End Times, provides an overview of all nine of the end-time wars and how they relate to each other.
Again, if you are hungry to learn more about where exactly this generation stands on God’s prophetic timeline, and why and how we have arrived at this moment in history so near the Rapture of the Church, this is a book that will help you immensely in your quest.
