WE PREACH THE BLESSED HOPE FOR THE FUTURE IN JESUS CHRIST OUR SAVIOUR
1Cor. 12:3 Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: AND THAT NO MAN CAN SAY THAT JESUS IS THE LORD, BUT BY THE HOLY GHOST.
“Behold, I come like a thief! Blessed is he who stays awake and keeps his clothes with him, so that he may not go naked and be shamefully exposed.”
“And you know what is restraining him now so that he may be revealed in his time. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work. Only he who now restrains it will do so until he is out of the way.”
Here Jesus was alluding to the fact that the Doctrine of Eternal Security WILL EXPIRE WITH THE RAPTURE
Luke 12:37 Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them
SO WON’T YOU ACCEPT JESUS NOW AND BE REMOVED FROM THAT EVENT (OF TRIBULATION) AND LIVE FOREVER WITH JESUS IN THE FAMILY OF GOD?
2 “(For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)” (2nd Corinthians 2:6)
DAILY CHRISTIAN BIBLICAL QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:
2 Thes. 2:3, Falling Away Or Departure?
QUESTION: The other night I was listening to (a well known teacher) concerning the rapture. He brought up 2nd Thess. 2:3 where in a lot of translations it’s called the falling away or the “apostate Church! He said that the Greek word seemed to also mean “departing” which would be more evidence for the pre – tribulation rapture. I have the Geneva translation and they use “the departing” instead of “the falling away”! I’m sure that others have written to you concerning this! I do think that as the days progress with time closing in that not only is this great news but we will have more understanding concering the times (as long as it’s fitting in the scriptures).
ANSWER: One of the roots of the Greek word apostasia in 2 Thes. 2:3 is aphistemi. It can mean to withdraw, depart, or remove, in addition to falling away. Before the King James was published, departure was the accepted translation for apostasia. Another related word is apostasion. It’s the masculine form of apostasia, and is the Greek word for divorce. Since all three of these words convey the idea of a change of mind, it appears that falling away is the more appropriate translation.
As tempting as it is to use the pre-King James understanding of 2 Thes. 2:3, you don’t need it to show that Paul taught the Thessalonians a pre-trib rapture. Paul said that before the Day of the Lord can come, there has to be a falling away and the anti-Christ has to be revealed. Then in verse 7 he said that before the anti- Christ can be revealed the restrainer has to be taken out of the way (literally taken from among). This restrainer is widely accepted to be the Holy Spirit resident in the Church. If so Paul was telling them that the church will have to be gone before the anti-Christ can be revealed.
In 1 Thes. 1:10 he promised that the Lord will rescue us from the time of His wrath. In 1 Thes. 2:19 He said we will be with Jesus when He comes, and in 1 Thes. 3:13 he said we’d be in the Presence of God when the time comes for the 2nd Coming. In 1 Thes. 4:16-17 he described how the Lord will take us to be with Him, and in 1 Thes. 5:9 he repeated that we’re not appointed to suffer wrath. Since the time of wrath will have already come by the end of Rev. 6, and since the Church is in view in Heaven in Rev. 5, that puts the rapture in Rev. 4 taking us away from the time, the place and any relation to God’s Wrath.
When you read the two letters together, you can see that the second letter would have been unnecessary unless he had taught them that the rapture would precede the End Times judgments.
Falling Away Or Departure?
QUESTION: I was listening to a well-known Bible teacher, who was saying that 2 Thes. 2:3 does not refer to a great departing from the faith (apostasia), but the Rapture. I may be missing something here, but my Strong’s concordance lists “falling away” as apostasia. Your thoughts on this please?
ANSWER: There is a sense in which the Greek word apostasia can mean departure. It’s a compound of apo (from) and istemi (stand.) Therefore, some scholars believe its core meaning is “away from” or “departure” or even “disappearance.”
I’m told that before the original KJV was published, the common understanding of 2 Thes. 2:3 was that it referred to the Rapture of the Church. Today it’s more widely seen as a falling away of believers-in-name-only from the true church in the days just before the anti-Christ is revealed.
With the seeker-friendly and emerging church movements, I think the “falling away” may be taking place before our very eyes.
But no matter which way you take it, 2 Thes. 2:3-8 does support a pre-trib rapture. Paul wrote in effect that two things have to happen before the anti-Christ can be revealed. One is the falling away in verse 3 and the other is the removal of the restrainer in verse 7. The prevailing view among evangelicals is that the restrainer refers to the Holy Spirit as resident in the Church.
If so there will be a falling away of believers-in-name-only from the Church, then the remaining true believers will be “taken out of the way” with the Holy Spirit in the Rapture, then the anti-Christ will be revealed.

The world needs an overarching level of multilateral governance that can sideline problematic “national interests” U.N. Secretary General Antonio Guterres said Thursday, as he lamented existing U.N. instruments such as the Security Council have teeth but “show little or no appetite to bite.”
As the world body on Friday commemorates the 75th anniversary of the adoption of the U.N. Charter, the founding instrument of the globalist organisation, Guterres said there is a need to “re-imagine the way nations cooperate.”
“We need a networked multilateralism, bringing together the U.N. system, regional organisations, international financial institutions and others. And we need an inclusive multilateralism, drawing on the indispensable contributions of civil society, business, cities, regions and, in particular, with greater weight given to the voices of youth,” Guterres said at a virtual press conference Thursday.
He claimed in the 21st century, governments are no longer the only political and power reality, adding “we need an effective multilateralism that can function as an instrument of global governance where it is needed.”
“The problem is that today’s multilateralism lacks scale, ambition and teeth. And some of the instruments that do have teeth, show little or no appetite to bite, as has recently been the case with the difficulties faced by the Security Council,” he said.
In response to questions as to exactly what the U.N. has achieved over three-quarters of a century, Guterres said “at least the Third World War so many people have predicted was avoided.
“We had what many called the ‘long peace’ with many small conflicts, but conflicts in which the big powers did not get involved against each other.”
MORE ISRAELI STRIKES INTO CENTRAL SYRIA: 10 IRANIAN MILITANTS KILLED, ‘AMONG LARGEST STRIKES CARRIED OUT BY ISRAEL ON SYRIAN SOIL‘
https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/ – Tzvi Joffre
Just two days after alleged Israeli airstrikes targeted a number of sites around Syria, 10 pro-Iranian militants were killed in airstrikes by unidentified aircraft in central Syria on Thursday night, according to the local Ayn Al-Furat news source.
The airstrikes targeted two sites between Palmyra and As-Sukhna in the Homs Governorate in central Syria. The first site had been used as a fuel station for the Assad regime and is currently used by the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC). Heavy weaponry and about 40 militants are stationed at the site. The second site is used as an operations room for the IRGC and weapons are stored there as well.
One of those killed in the strikes was an Iraqi leader named Abu Al-Hassan, according to the report. Afghani militants were also among those killed in the strikes.
Also on Thursday night, two members of the Iraqi Hezbollah militia were killed and a number of others were wounded after unidentified aircraft targeted a site belonging to the militia near Sabikhan in the Deir Ezzor region of eastern Syria, according to the Shahed news agency.
At least seven Syrian soldiers and pro-Iranian militants were killed and a number of others were wounded in the first wave of strikes which targeted a number of locations belonging to Syrian and pro-Iranian forces in southern and eastern Syria. Among the targets was a communications center and radar in Tel el-Sahn near As-Suwayda. An Iranian arms shipment arrived in the As-Suwayda area on Tuesday morning, according to Al-Arabiya.
Just hours later, a number of sites near Hama in western-central Syria were targeted by alleged Israeli airstrikes. The targeted sites were used as weapons depots by Iranian forces, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR).
The director of SOHR, Rami Abdulrahman, stated that the strikes on Tuesday night were “among the largest strikes carried out by Israel on Syrian soil.”
On Wednesday, Amos Yadlin, former IDF Intelligence chief and executive director of the Institute for National Security Studies, warned that Israel should be prepared for a variety of different responses by Iran or its proxies.
The former IDF intelligence chief pointed to past attempts to fire rockets into Israel and recent cyberattacks targeting Israeli businesses and infrastructure.

One of the options the government is considering regarding West Bank annexation is announcing within days that it is extending Israeli sovereignty only over the settlement-city of Maale Adumim and making it part of Jerusalem’s municipal borders, the Ynet news site reports.
The report says the option was raised last night during a meeting Defense Minister Benny Gantz held with the chiefs of the IDF, the Shin Bet and the Mossad, after several days of “war games” to assess possible outcomes of annexation.
The unsourced report says one of the “central options” that was discussed among security and government officials was to begin with the largely symbolic move of annexing just Maale Adumim, which is located east of the capital.

Israeli researchers have started carrying out genome analysis to test whether the novel coronavirus is changing to become less vicious.
Evolutionary virologist Adi Stern told The Times of Israel that she has been tasked by the Health Ministry with conducting an analysis of dozens of samples from recent coronavirus patients, and comparing them to old samples.
“The hypothesis is that the virus has attenuated, which means it’s become less virulent, and there may be a genetic signal that shows this,” she said, adding that she was sequencing the genome of the virus in recent infections and contrasting it with samples from March.
Stern, who runs a Tel Aviv University virus lab, said that if this proves correct, it could explain why a smaller proportion of COVID-19 patients today end up being hospitalized in serious condition. It would have a major impact on the way governments and doctors plan for the rest of the pandemic, she commented, adding that the analysis will take several more weeks.
As Israel is getting underway with the research, an Italian doctor has been making headlines with claims that the virus is becoming gentler.
Bassetti, the chief of infectious diseases at San Martino General Hospital in Genoa, said: “Even elderly patients, aged 80 or 90, are now sitting up in bed and they are breathing without help. The same patients would have died in two or three days, before.”
In Israeli hospitals, there are some similar suggestions.
“The disease is losing its virulence by mutation,” the leading infectious diseases specialist David Greenberg told The Times of Israel.
New COVID-19 Cases Soar, But New Deaths Decline As Younger Patients Recover
Carrie Sheffield ,
Even though new coronavirus infections are rising in America and around the world, new coronavirus deaths are largely flat, a trend largely missing from most mainstream media coverage.
Experts say the fact that new coronavirus deaths appear to remain flat is driven by more younger patients getting infected and recovering amid reopenings as the worst of the pandemic passes.
On Wednesday evening, the Washington Post issued a breaking news email alert headlined “New coronavirus cases in the U.S. soar to highest single-day total.”
“Across the United States,” reported the Post, “more than 36,000 new infections were reported by state health departments on Wednesday — surpassing the previous single-day record of 34,203 set on April 25.”
Yet the article failed to mention that even while new infections are on the rise, new COVID-19 deaths are not.
This vital information gap in the media is causing some health policy experts to worry that fear about the coronavirus — evidenced, for example, by Wednesday’s sharp stock market drop — is not founded in facts, particularly about how the virus disparately impacts different age groups. The spreading of unfounded alarm, the experts fear, could risk deep harm to Americans’ livelihoods and mental health due to a prolonged, widespread shutdown.
The coronavirus has ravaged elderly populations in nursing homes and those with underlying comorbidities, but now the virus appears to be striking those who are younger and healthier and more able to withstand the disease and return to life normally.
Vanderbilt University School of Medicine professor Dr. William Schaffner, who specializes in preventive medicine and infectious diseases, noted in an interview with Just the News that for example, in Florida, reports indicate that it is middle-aged and younger adults now being hit with COVID-19.

The troubles listed here in my 2020 economic predictions are so severe and so likely to get even worse that it’s more difficult to imagine they won’t get worse than to believe they will. Just a few of these misfortunes would be enough to plunge us into an abyss of social and financial catastrophes.
Here are my economic predictions for the remainder of 2020
This list of economic predictions is not hard to come up with. It is, however, the fact that it is so easy to predict these things this year that makes this year’s list so important.
I think most readers will agree with the likelihood of most predictions on this list. The point of the list, then, is to show by the aggregate of calamities that will wash over us how close to certain is a deep economic depression. (Most are problems central banks have zero capacity to resolve.)
This depression is something many people may not perceive until they widen their field of vision to see the full ocean of likely troubles that are nearly certain to pound the entire world in wave after wave for months or even years to come.
(Though I focus on the US, the same economics predictions are likely to apply all over the world with their own variations of local color.)
Many people are living right now in the delusional hope of a V-shaped recoveryfrom the recent Coronacrisis lockdown. The list below shows why that is the most unlikely possibility imaginable.
During this time of economic crisis, most of the predictions listed below are current events that are almost certain to continue as the major trends of 2020 and are likely to even worsen, plunging us into the chaos of a deep economic collapse, worse than 2008:
The social unrest of BLM will become even more widespread and intense.
Additional social unrest over forced social distancingwill reappear around the nation as distancing measures return.
Social unrestover corporate bailouts is likely to begin as the Federal Reserve and government stack up mega bailouts for the rich (or as bailouts already given become known) via the insanely rich BlackRock, which has been given a monopoly on administering handouts for which only the wealthiest qualify.
Tearing down of monuments and other acts of violence will certainly create backlash against BLMfrom those who value the monuments or just want the history of both sides preserved.
So, social unrest will beget more social unrest.
All the turmoil of a likely-to-be contested electionwith all the accusations of Russian tampering and other hacking (like what just happened to Trump’s Tulsa rally) will cause even more social unrest.
All those social conflicts will negatively impact some local businesses already hurting badly from the COVID-19 lock-down because they will be unable to reopen due to the protests at a time when we cannot afford anything that causes further damage to business.

There is an invisible war raging in the world. Not a war fought with bullets and guns, but a war of manipulation.
It’s a war fought by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) against the free world using the full force of its propaganda and influence apparatus.
Not only does the CCP actively spread its propaganda to the West, it has even succeeded in dictating what can and cannot be said in free societies.
However, this growing influence has gone largely unnoticed. And by now, it has penetrated all levels of American society.
In this new age of information warfare, where a hostile foreign power is waging a war for our minds, what can be done?
In this new in-depth report, we explore China’s “Grand External Propaganda” campaign against America and the rest of the free world and reveal the playbook it uses.
And as we’ve long been warned, those Democrats and Republicans long working to tear down America to bring in their totalitarian ‘one world government’ will stop at nothing. As author J.R. Nyquist recently warned on his blog, it’s very important to call the Democrat agenda what it is, communism.
With the destruction of monuments across America another warning sign of America’s rapid descent into Communism (and the Civil War that would come with any fall into a totalitarian government), as Bible Prophecy Tracker had reported in this recent story, a woman from Venezuela recently warned America where destroying statues leads. You can hear her warning in the 1st video below.

Once you allow your economy to become dependent on extremes of debt, leverage, inequality, legalized looting, monopoly, pay-to-play politics and speculative asset bubbles, a depression is inevitable.
The pandemic lockdown will be blamed for the Greater Depression, but the lockdown only toppled all the dominoes that were already lined up.
The lockdown would have been survivable if the economy hadn’t been over-indebted, over-leveraged, burdened by insanely high costs, stripmined by greedy monopolies, dependent on stock market fraud, destabilized by extreme inequality, corrupted by political pay-to-play and addicted to speculation.
The apologists always blame depressions on central banks not printing money fast enough, while overlooking the real drivers: debt, high costs and dependence on speculative bubbles. As noted here many times, revenues and income can quickly slide lower, but debt must be serviced regardless of revenues and income.
Once debt payments dominate expenses, any wobble in revenues / income / cash flow triggers default.
Regarding unbearably high costs that only go higher, year after year: as noted here many times, Sickcare Will Bankrupt the Nation all by itself, never mind soaring higher education / student loan debt serfdom, skyrocketing rents, junk fees, taxes, etc.
U.S. Lifestyle + “Healthcare” = Bankruptcy (June 19, 2008)
The truth is the cost of living is unaffordable but we can’t even acknowledge this obvious fact because even acknowledging it would threaten the entire house of cards. So instead we play-act as if we believe the bogus “inflation is dead” narratives.
The top 5% technocrat/managerial class have done very well for themselves in the speculative run-up of destabilizing inequality, and since they run the narrative machines, we’re swamped with happy stories about the economy, all of which boil down to this absurd fantasy: since I’m doing so well, everyone else must be doing well, too.
Everyone who was barely keeping their head above water in making their debt payments is already in default or will soon be in default. Since the banks and shadow-banking lenders have gorged on the profits skimmed by loaning huge sums to marginal borrowers, now that these marginal borrowers are defaulting en masse the banks and lenders are about to be crushed by one wave of catastrophic losses after another.
Student loans–already in mass default. Credit cards–the wave is rolling in as we speak. Auto loans–looking like Waimea Bay on a big day. Mortgages–better not to look.
Corporate debt has exploded to unprecedented levels, and this is what will break the financial system. Zombie corporations are rushing to borrow billions of dollars (thanks to the Federal Reserve) but increasing their debt is only doing more of what created their fragility in the first place.

Satellite images show new Chinese structures near site of deadly border clashes with Indian forces after New Delhi sent more soldiers to disputed Himalayan region
China appears to be building new structures near the site of a deadly border clash with Indian troops earlier this months – despite both sides pledging to ‘disengage’.
Satellite images taken on June 22 show what appears to be a new Chinese encampment and road under construction on a terrace overlooking a bend in the Galwan River, where a month ago there was nothing.
Meanwhile defensive positions appear to have been built on the Indian side, and a nearby forward operating base appears to have been significantly scaled back when compared with images taken of the same area on March 22.
It comes after 20 Indian troops were killed and 76 wounded in brutal hand-to-hand fighting with Chinese forces, because guns are banned in the region. China is also thought to have lost men, but has not reported any deaths.
A satellite image taken on June 22 shows a road under construction on the Chinese side of the border, including several trucks, tents, diggers and cranes, along with a newly-constructed culvert over the river
Show of force: This newly-released image shows a Chinese base further along the valley. Both sides have officially agreed to ‘disengage’ in the region, though observers say forces are building on both sides
China’s foreign ministry did not immediately respond to requests for comment on the apparent activity.
India’s defence ministry also did not respond to a request for a comment.
Indian military officials have previously said they will be closely monitoring the planned disengagement process and verify it on the ground.
‘There is a trust deficit so far as the Chinese are concerned,’ said former Indian army chief Deepak Kapoor.
‘So if they are telling us verbally they are ready to pull back, we will wait to see it on the ground. Until then the armed forces will be on alert.’ (Reporting by Simon Scarr and Sanjeev Miglani; Additional reporting by Tony Munroe in Beijing; Editing by Lincoln Feast.)

A large explosion occurred east of Tehran, Iran, late Thursday night, but it remains unclear what caused the event.
Saudi outlet Al Arabiya reported that the explosion took place at a military base east of Tehran; however, speculation surrounding the incident has run rampant, with some claiming that the explosion was the result of a power plant outage or a munitions disposal gone wrong.
Early reports from the area also claimed Parchin, a military base “where Iran has conducted nuclear activity” was the site of the blast, according to New York Times reporter Farnaz Fassihi.
Tehran-based Mehr News Agency reported that it heard a “terrible sound” and believed the bright light in the sky was related to the noise.
Local footage shows the night sky lighting up from the explosions in the distance.
Another perspective of the incident was later posted by analyst Joe Truzman.
It remains unclear whether any injuries or fatalities were associated with the explosion.
Iranian authorities are currently investigating the bright light and loud noise, according to Reuters, which cited state TV.

Just when you think that 2020 has been filled with enough trouble, even more stuff starts happening. Coming into this week, we were already dealing with a new COVID-19 surge which has pushed the number of daily cases to the highest levels we have seen so far, a global economy which is in the process of imploding all around us, massive civil unrest in U.S. cities from coast to coast, and giant swarms of locusts that are wiping out farms all the way from eastern Africa to parts of India. Unfortunately, now we have several more items to add to our growing list.
Let’s start by talking about an alarming new outbreak of locusts. The following comes from a British news source…
Dramatic footage captures an “astonishing” swarm of locusts swarm through farmland and destroy crops.
The short-horned grasshoppers are capable of devouring the same amount of crops as 2,500 people would each day.
Some of you may have just read that paragraph and come to the conclusion that this is “old news”.
After all, we have been hearing about the colossal armies of locusts in Africa for months, and I have published numerous articles about that unprecedented plague.
But the news story that I just quoted wasn’t talking about those locusts. Instead, that report was about a brand new infestation that has erupted in Argentina, and one local official is saying that he has never seen anything like it ever before.
Just like on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean, these little critters are voraciously gobbling up everything in sight, and countless farms are being destroyed.
Now these swarms are heading for Brazil, and Brazilian officials are definitely extremely alarmed. One of my readers in Brazil sent me an article about this emerging crisis from a Brazilian news source, and the following is a quote from that article which has been translated into English…
In approximately one square kilometer they can have up to 40 million insects, which in one day consume pastures equivalent to what 2,000 cows or 350,000 people eat, Argentine agronomist Héctor Medina told Reuters.
What would you do if 40 million locusts suddenly descended on your farm?
Of course the truth is that there would be very little that you could do that would make any sort of a difference. Just like so many other farmers around the globe, you would simply watch as all of your hard work is completely wiped out.
Meanwhile, an absolutely gigantic plume of dust from Africa has crossed the Atlantic Ocean and is about to hit the United States. The following comes from CBS News…
A massive plume of dust from the Sahara desert in northern Africa has been traversing the atmosphere, thousands of feet above the tropical Atlantic Ocean, and is now cloaking the Caribbean and closing in on the southeastern United States.
Every once in a while a dust plume from Africa can cross the ocean like this, but the monstrous one that we are witnessing right now is truly unusual.
In fact, one expert says that this is “the most significant event in the past 50 years”…
“This is the most significant event in the past 50 years. Conditions are dangerous in many Caribbean islands,” Pablo Méndez Lázaro, from the University of Puerto Rico’s School of Public Health, told the Associated Press.
As this plume travels across the U.S., air quality in some areas will drop precipitously. Some of the dust has already arrived, but a “thicker layer” is projected to starting hitting Texas on Friday…
On Wednesday, the dust is forecast to move across the Gulf of Mexico toward Texas.
Thursday morning, people in places like Brownsville in Texas and Houston will likely wake up to a beautiful sunrise and a hazier than normal sky.
Forecast models show the thicker concentration blanketing most of Central America and Mexico Thursday.
This thicker layer is likely to reach Texas by Friday and then take a turn to the east. If the forecast model is right, it will move over most of the Southeast and MidAtlantic states over the weekend.
On top of everything else, the west coast is starting to shake in a major way once again. On Wednesday, southern California was struck by a magnitude 5.8 earthquake…
California residents received an emergency alert on their phones which read: “Earthquake! Expect shaking. Drop, Cover, Hold On. Protect yourself now. – USGS ShakeAlert”. The US Geological Survey (USGS) said the quake struck 17km south-southeast of Lone Pine. The tremor originated at a depth of 2.9km, with an epicenter around 17 kilometers south-east of Lone Pine.
According to a USGS interactive shake map the impact of the earthquake could be felt in the Death Valley National Park.
The earthquake has since been downgraded to 5.8 magnitude.
That quake was followed by numerous sizable aftershocks, including one that was measured to be magnitude 4.6.
Overall, there have been 2,267 earthquakes in California and Nevada over the last 7 days, and that is definitely alarming.
Farther south along “the Ring of Fire”, Mexico was hit by a magnitude 7.4 earthquake on Tuesday…
A powerful earthquake struck Mexico’s southern Oaxaca region on Tuesday, killing at least five people and shaking buildings hundreds of miles away.
The 7.4-magnitude quake struck mid-morning, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. Its epicenter was off the Pacific coast about seven miles southwest of Santa María Zapotitlán, near the beach resort of Huatulco.
Very large seismic events are happening so frequently now that they barely make a blip on the news these days, and that is unfortunate because people need to wake up and understand that our planet is becoming increasingly unstable.
Here in the United States, scientists have been strongly warning us for years that we are way overdue for “the Big One” to hit California, and this is one of the things that I will be addressing in the new book that I am currently working on.
At some point there will be no more sand in the hourglass, and an unprecedented disaster will strike the west coast. Let us pray that we still have quite a bit more time before that happens.
But nothing can stop the inexorable march of time, and the deeper we get into 2020 the crazier it gets.
Unfortunately, the truth is that this “perfect storm” is just getting started, and that means that what we have experienced up to this point is just the tip of the iceberg
WHEN THESE THINGS BEGIN TO TAKE PLACE...
https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/ – By Hal Lindsey
According to the John Hopkins University of Medicine Coronavirus Research Center, there have been more than 9 million Covid cases in the world so far, and almost half a million people have died. Over 120,000 of the dead were from the United States. This all happened in just a few months. The World Health Organization did not receive its first report on the disease until the last day of 2019.
Even as Europe comes out of its lock-down, the number of infections worldwide continues to rise. Much of the increase has come from Central and South America. Brazil has had more than 50,000 Covid deaths. The indigenous peoples there have been especially hard hit. There have been major new outbreaks in countries that thought they had everything under control, such as China, South Korea, and Australia.
The rise in new cases in many US states is tied to increased testing. Those numbers can be misleading. But it is troubling to see hospitalisations on the rise in places like Texas, California, and Arizona. Hospitalizations do not fluctuate with the number of people being tested. They reflect how many people are actually becoming severely ill.
Meanwhile, some Christian ministers are telling us that this is not a sign of the times. They point to the Black Plague and the 1918 Spanish flu as examples of worse pandemics. But there is a difference this time. In 1918 and in the mid-13th century, the primary prerequisite for end-times events had not taken place. The Jews had not yet formed a new nation of Israel.
The other difference today is that this is only one of a series of signs striking the world all at once. And the current pandemic perfectly fits the warning Jesus gave in Luke 21:11. He said the time near His return would be characterised in part by plagues. And Covid-19 is a plague.
The most devastating plagues will come during the seven-year tribulation period which will take place sometime after the rapture. The first of the bowl judgements in Revelation 16 depicts a terrible pestilence. Verse 2 says, “And the first angel went and poured out his bowl into the earth; and it became a loathsome and malignant sore upon the men who had the mark of the beast and who worshipped his image.”
Much earlier in the tribulation, the last of the four horsemen of the apocalypse will carry pestilence as one of its elements. Revelation 6:8 says, “And I looked, and behold, an ashen horse; and he who sat on it had the name Death; and Hades was following with him. And authority was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with famine and with pestilence and by the wild beasts of the earth.”
The second of those four horsemen will bring a global, economic depression, deeper and more horrible than any before it. Covid seems to be setting the world up for that, too. Governments all over the world have been spending wildly to keep their economies afloat during a time when their income has been greatly diminished. Tax revenues are low when businesses can’t open, and people are unemployed. That means massive new budget deficits all over the planet.
Another feature of the new era we have entered, is a striking level of lawlessness. Crime levels are exploding all over the world. Jesus said that this, too, would be a sign of His coming.
Seeing these events engulf our world is at least unsettling, if not outright terrifying. But God doesn’t want you to be afraid. Remember that Jesus told about these things from a perspective of hope. In Luke 21:28, He said, “When these things begin to take place, straighten up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.”
NTEB PROPHECY NEWS PODCAST: As The Fires Of Prophecy Ignite Around The World, The Lukewarm Laodicean Church Remains On Sidelines

On this episode of the NTEB Prophecy News Podcast, we are looking at the nearly unbelievable prophetical fires that rage across America and around the world, a fire so intense that nothing can ever be the same again. Economies crashing, digital surveillance, rioting in the streets as the spirit of Antichrist continues to gathering strength and speed like the end times hurricane it truly is. Why is the Church silent at a time like this?
NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:
On today’s program we do not present to you ‘bad news’, but the truth of what’s happening all around us right now, truth foreseen and told to us long ago in the scripture of truth.
Bible prophecy is a funny thing, you can read about it, know it’s coming, and yet when it arrives, who is ready to receive it? At a time like this, the blood bought, born again Church of Jesus Christ should be in massive revival, at the forefront of warning a lost and dying world about what’s coming. Yet it remains lukewarm and indifferent, just as prophecy said it would be. I had a reader write to me just yesterday, telling me that his pastor is preaching from the pulpit that prophecy is not being fulfilled right now. That’s where we are. Welcome to Laodicea.
“I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.” Revelation 3:15,16 (KJB)
“Behold ye among the heathen, and regard, and wonder marvellously: for I will work a work in your days, which ye will not believe, though it be told you.” Habakkuk 1:5 (KJB)
On this episode of the NTEB Prophecy News Podcast, we are looking at the nearly unbelievable prophetical fires that rage across America and around the world, a fire so intense that nothing can ever be the same again. Economies crashing, digital surveillance, rioting in the streets as the spirit of Antichrist continues to gathering strength and speed like the end times hurricane it truly is. Wouldn’t this be a great time for the Church to be warning the world of what’s coming?
In 1 Kings 22:18, we see the king of Israel upset with the prophet Micaiah, because he was asking him for good news concerning the battle and he didn’t get. It’s not that he got ‘bad news’, Micaiah gave him the truth from the Lord and that is rarely palatable to unsaved men. On today’s program we do not present to you bad news, but the truth of what’s happening all around us right now, truth foreseen and told to us long ago in the scripture of truth. Micaiah told the king of Israel how to prepare for battle, but the king refused to listen. I am no prophet, but I will tell you today how to prepare for what’s coming, will you listen?

We were supposed to be well into a “recovery” by now, but instead more bad economic news just keeps pouring in. In fact, the numbers that I am going to share with you in this article are absolutely eye-popping. Initially, many of the economic optimists had been trying to convince us that we would experience a “short, sharp recession” followed by a “V-shaped recovery”. Well, at this point it has become quite clear that we can forget all about that scenario. The mainstream media is increasingly starting to use the word “depression” to describe what is happening to the U.S. economy, and the raw numbers definitely support the use of that label. For example, the Atlanta Fed’s GDPNow model is now projecting that U.S. GDP will decline by 46.6 percent on an annualized basis during the second quarter of 2020… (READ MORE…)

It has been on my heart to write this article for a few days, but I knew that it wouldn’t be easy to write. 2020 has already been one of the worst years in modern U.S. history, and it looks like the next six months are going to be extremely challenging as well. But even though most Americans are expecting that things will return to “normal” in 2021 and beyond, the truth is that the “perfect storm” that we are witnessing is only in the very early stages. All of the old cycles are ending, all of the bubbles are bursting, and we are starting to experience the consequences of decades of incredibly foolish decisions. So even though the remaining months of 2020 will be chaotic, the truth is that things are going to get progressively worse as the years move along. That means that you should use this period of time to prepare for what is ahead of us, because at some point the window of opportunity to prepare will be closed for good. (READ MORE…)

JESUS CHRIST RETURN FOR HIS CHURCH IS “IMMINENT”
Matt. 7:27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
Matt. 24:38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
Matt. 24:39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be
DON’T WAIT FOR THE LAST MINUTE
We are currently in the “Birth Pangs” of the coming “7 year TRIBULATION” period, where all the Nations on Earth will be subject to God’s Wrath on an “UNGODLY” World. The Rapture of Jesus Christ Church is “TOTALLY” imminent; And what will follow after that will be massively more devastating that we are seeing right now (Read Revelation Ch 6 – 22) God is trying to get everyone’s attention to the coming Judgements; He does not want “ANYONE” to perish, but all to come to repentance. He loves us, but will not stand idly by and watch the World, (His Creation) turn to sin and debauchery). We are currently living in a fallen “Satanic” World where “EVIL”, is totally accepted, and God and his Love is being exponentially rejected. The time has come when God HAS TO intervene, and he is (The prophetic word listed in his Word the Bible is being fulfilled exponentially).
THE NEW WORLD ORDER:
ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT – ONE WORLD ECONOMIC SYSTEM – ONE WORLD RELIGION
Dan. 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
Dan. 7:24 And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings
Rev. 17:12 And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast
