:rotating_light:I believe 3 major prophetic events are increasing as we speak :point_down:t4:

:triangular_flag_on_post:BIRTHPANGS INCREASING

“And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.”
Matthew 24:6-8

:triangular_flag_on_post:SPIRITUAL WARFARE INCREASING

“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.” Ephesians 6:12

:triangular_flag_on_post:ISRAEL HATED BY ALL NATIONS

Jerusalem is increasingly becoming the intoxicating drink that will make the Nations of the world stumble that was foretold by the prophet Zechariah.

“I will make Jerusalem like an intoxicating drink that makes the nearby nations stagger when they send their armies to besiege Jerusalem and Judah.

On that day I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock. All the nations will gather against it to try to move it, but they will only hurt themselves.”
Zechariah 12:2-3 NLT

I will be elaborating more on this in a podcast this week.

„Two lines parallel of prophetic events that will eventually converge gradually and suddenly to set the stage for the seven-year tribulation…“

In this presentation of brother J. D. one must listen carefully, and perhaps watch it a second time, because he brings in an outstanding way, the above two parallel prophetic lines in connection with each other: What has happened in the last three years in relation to Agenda2030, and its goal, and what has been " brewing " in Israel for some time.

It should be noted that he focuses his attention on Jerusalem at the beginning, because that is where everything comes together in the end. From about minute 1:20, he quotes a brother whose observations I also share, namely: The Psalm 83 prophecy in conjunction/proximity with the Isaiah 17-Damascus prophecy - both in the immediate vicinity of the Rapture, and after the Rapture the war of Ezekiel 38/39. Like this brother, I understand the order likewise.

It’s worth listening carefully to this video, as well as looking at the accompanying slides, and it’s not hard to see how late the hour has struck…


I read Zephaniah chapter 2 this morning and it seems this prophecy is speaking about what we are seeing now in the Israel war with Hamas (Gaza) and Syria and Hezbala. The cities mentioned in this passage are modern day Gaza Strip among other cities in Syria. The end of the prophecy has Israel living peacefully because of Gods intervention on the sea coast where Palestine is located today. This means God took out Gaza and Syria (Assad) because of how they treated His people. Would love this group to review this chapter and let me know what you think and if I’m on the right track. God bless!



So this update was on point…totally! I was actually going to outline what I thought was going to happen (per direction of last thread) but JD read a letter that basically outlines it perfectly. I might rearrange a line or two but I do not really know the order and neither does that Author or anyone else……BUT………God!!!

However the prophecies are outlined that we are seeing taking place today!


When you think about death tolls; ie Maui, Gaza, or earthquakes one can’t help but think about the great tribulation and the staggering loss of life that will occur during that time. It’s really not just a loss of life. It is today, just as it will be then, a loss of souls. We’re experiencing precursors to the tribulation period. The heart weighs heavy on that reality for the sake of those souls.


This is the haunting understanding that always makes me cry. . .

Lord, we need you every hour; the ones who don’t know that they need you, need you every hour; the whole dying world needs you now!


God-incidence that this version of that hymn done by The Scottish Festival singers is recorded in an empty church? Maranatha. . . Oh Lord come for us . . . And leave not a one on our hearts and your behind!! I pray in Jesus’ precious, dear, mighty name!


His :blush: countenance is upon them

“So they shall put My name on the children of Israel, and I will bless them.”

Numbers 6:27


So in John Hallers prophecy update today, he mentions that this could also be Psalms 83 taking place before us. He says that the prophecy could represent a “permanent state” or condition that Israel is in now and in the past.

Egypt and Jordan peace treaties could survive this current state and be maintained and Psalm 83 would still be fulfilled with the war in the Gaza Strip, Lebanon and Syria now in play.


“That day” is today

Yuval Noah Harari on CNN Amanpour - Hamas’ aim was ‘to assassinate any chance for peace’


From 2017….

Israel and the unexpected new world order

“Most importantly, Israel is positioned to guard the world’s Internet. Everything today is traded, controlled and administered online. And Israel is emerging as the world’s number one guardian of the worldwide web. That means, regardless of being a few miles offtrack from China’s Land and Maritime Roads, it is positioned to be the center of both belts.”

You still need Saudi Arabia and Yemen to attack (supposing said view above was even possible).
That isn’t going to happen, Saudi normalization is still being pursued.

I’m being polite, but no matter how many scenarios are bent to make the pieces fit, it just cannot happen the way it is described. We will see the final result of the war.

Now if we want to talk about two things that are factual, The Yom Kippur of 1973 lasted roughly 3 weeks. This war may not last longer than that.

In other news no one cares about, New Zealand just voted in the most conservative government in decades. The new leader Christopher Luxon is very supportive of Israel :wink: Keep this mind for another time.

Cordially and Respectfully,


Figure I’d also post this:

Now this could just be a big bluff, or maybe they really did decide to use Hamas as toilet paper and it wasn’t worth the effort.


I’m trying to understand the meaning of what are we to look for when Israel is the hour hand, Jerusalem is the minute hand and the Temple Mount is the second hand?

What are we looking for that will tell us time is up? Is the Temple Mount going to get hit with a rocket and that is how we know time is up?

If someone could explain this to me at a 5th grade level, that would help me better understand.


It sure seems like it, to me! After looking at:

The 5 Philistine Cities: Ashkelon, Ashdod, Gaza, Ekron, & Gath | HolyLandSite.com

And after looking up the modern names mentioned in this chapter, I would say this prophecy is coming true right before our eyes. I mean, this has never happened before. Great insight! God bless you, too.
