Climate and Prophecy - By Mark A. Becker - https://www.raptureready.com/2021/10/07/climate-and-prophecy-by-mark-a-becker/
In late June, it was hot where I live in the Pacific Northwest, along with much of western North America; this was the result of what’s known as a heat dome. For a purely scientific explanation of this event without the drivel from climate alarmists, please read Meteorologist Chuck Wiese’s elucidation.
There’s also a drought going on. No surprise here as heat generates drought – and the media and politicians have been reminding us every chance they get, as this is what they do. Is this heat something new? No. It’s called summer, and summer generally tends to be pretty hot every time it comes around. Droughts are nothing new, either. I’ve been through a few of them, and I’m sure you have too – or have at least read about them happening at different places around the earth at different times. As Christians, we shouldn’t be startled by these things, as we live in a fallen world.
In this article, I wanted to make a possible correlation between weather events and prophecy. In all honesty, I admit that, because I’ve been hearing climate alarmism my entire life, I tend to be very skeptical and cynical of so-called “climate change.” I, personally, am not seeing anything unusual in regard to weather patterns in my short time on earth, but this doesn’t negate the possibility that something may be happening. Most Bible-believing Christians would agree, though, that we are definitely living in the last of the last days, so weather extremes shouldn’t be a surprise if something is, in fact, happening, given the scope of prophetic disclosure in the Word of God.
But, first, I’m compelled to offer somewhat of a tirade against what I see as an outright abomination of common sense and logic. Whether or not something out of the ordinary is happening with our weather systems is debatable, but how the world gets there is foolishness and doesn’t align with the Word of God.
“While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease” (Genesis 8:22).
Science ceases to be science when politics enters the fray – it always does. Science, like all aspects of life in our fallen world, is subject to human error (known or unknown) and, like other human institutions, to being bought-off by the powers that be and their dark agendas. The love of money is the root of all evil (1 Timothy 6:10), and “science” is not immune. Covid and “climate change” are two excellent examples of this truth, and the objective is always fear, power, and control.
And – as we have learned from current events – science never gets anything wrong, right?!?! The volume of “experts” paraded around in media circles is quite overwhelming, and, time and time again, they were not only shown to have gotten the science wrong but, in many other instances, they were found to be speaking outright lies. How soon until these “experts” become known for what they are – political hacks and useful idiots? As Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels famously said: “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.” Add to this statement, “loud enough,” and you have accurately defined the globalist elite’s propaganda efforts on all fronts.
“But the weather-related disasters are so much more frequent and intense than they were in the past!” So says the environmental cabal and their faithful subjects. But is this true?
Increasing Frequency of Reporting
What is more intense and frequent is the incessant reporting on these events. Even just 40 years ago, a natural disaster might be reported on the nightly news, have a story or two in the newspapers with a couple of photographs, and then the story would fade away. Today, every weather-related disaster is reported by hundreds – if not thousands – of news outlets and reporters with unique personal story after personal story of what any particular disaster’s effect had on the local population.
To say this is overkill would be an understatement, at least in comparison to past reporting. And this process is repeated time and time again with every weather-related disaster or event that may come about anywhere in the world. Compounded upon all of this is that every article and report spews out the religious “climate change” mantra, and the indoctrination is nearly complete — not to mention what is happening in our educational institutions.
These weather-related disasters, their frequency, and their intensity is nothing new. What is new is that we have many more people on the planet. With population growth comes an increase in not only multiple reports of said disasters but in the number of people affected, merely because there are more people to be affected. And consider satellites that monitor the entire globe; they capture weather-related events the general public would never have been privy to in the past because nobody would have known the disaster had even occurred – a fairly recent technological advancement, to be sure.
When all of this is considered, with a heavy emphasis on mass reporting and hyped hysteria by the media of these weather-related disasters, there’s the illusion that these events are intensifying.
We do well to remember that:
“… the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness. And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain” (1 Corinthians 3:19-20).
The ‘Man-Made’ Climate Hysteria
The idea that man’s living and interacting in our world is emitting life-destroying “carbon” and is plummeting our planet into oblivion is the hoax of our time. From the cars we drive, the planes we fly, the materials we produce and consume, and everything in between – and don’t forget cattle flatulence – the globalist elite have cemented into the public’s consciousness that they are responsible for destroying the earth. This is something that mankind has never thought possible – nor is possible – that just by living, men, women, and children are destroying our planet. This is nonsense, and the elite know it.
But they have a plan, and they will achieve that plan at all costs. Speaking of their plan and the costs: A brand new credit card is coming into the market that tracks your “carbon footprint” by your purchases, and when you’ve reached your CO2 emission limit, they will deny any further purchases! It’s known as the Mastercard/Barclays Doconomy Climate Fintech card. And Klaus Schwab and the World Economic Forum (WEF) have excitedly endorsed it. Of course, this is being presented as an “educational effort,” so it will never become mandatory, right?!?! Enjoy!
[Note: Yes, as stewards of God’s creation, we are to take as much care of our resources, along with animal and plant life, as we can. But when it comes to secular, evolutionary ideals, man has turned our planet and ecosystems into a living, breathing entity and embarked on a modern-day, paganistic, Gaia-worshiping religious system, where man is the problem and nature is elevated to godhood (Romans 1:25).]
When it comes to the “man-made” climate hoax, there can be no denying its existence when one just looks back on the past century. When I was a kid in the 1970s, the scare-tactic claim of the day was that we were about to enter into a little Ice Age –Time Magazine: Another Ice Age? and Newsweek: The Cooling World.
Well, that didn’t work! So, they needed something else. Out pops Al Gore and his ironically titled An Inconvenient Truth, and they’re off and running again – this time in the other direction with something called “Global Warming.”
This didn’t work either as, laughably, almost every time the climate cabal got together to discuss how they could “combat the weather” (just the thought of this claim brings my mind to laughter), temperatures at their meeting sites were trending below average and, in some cases, bitterly cold. It sure seemed that God was having good chuckle at their expense!
But, then, they had an epiphany: Let’s call it “Climate Change,” and we can have it both ways; we can claim catastrophe when it’s cold and when it’s hot!
This wasn’t radical enough for them, though, as some of the people – those with half a brain, anyway – were still rejecting their ridiculous claims. They needed peer pressure to help achieve their diabolical aspirations along with fearful slogans. So, they came up with new terms such as “Climate Crisis,” “Climate Emergency,” and “Climate Chaos.” In addition, they chose to belittle those who wouldn’t conform to their fanatical assertions by calling them “climate deniers” (as if there’s anyone who denies climate) and “science deniers” (a term they also lob at their perceived enemies with Covid and those who don’t conform to their mandates) in an attempt to push them into complying with all of their radical demands for a global response to this “crisis of all crises.”
The climate alarmists have proclaimed that “climate change” has been the catalyst to all kinds of problems in our world. Everything from floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, wildfires, and any other weather-related natural disaster known to man. But it doesn’t stop there! Did you know that the “climate crisis” is also responsible for poverty, wars, violence, crime, building collapses, refugees, and a host of other social ills and problems that plague mankind and the earth? “It’s true!” So say the fear-mongers, apparently totally ignorant that all of these ills have plagued the world since the fall of man.
Where was their “climate emergency” in the past? Where was their “carbon” problem in ancient history? No, this is an entirely new “man-made” phenomenon brought to you exclusively from the globalist “Masters of the Universe,” courtesy of a Satanic New World Order.
The One World Religion is also using “climate change” to unite the world’s religions that will be dominant until the midway point of the Tribulation, just prior to the Abomination of Desolation and the institution of Antichrist worship and economic control of The Mark of The Beast System. “All hands on deck,” as they say.
Now, all we hear and see is an absolute uprising from the corporate media elite, educational elite, political elite, world governments, globalists, the UN, and the sheeple that worship at the altar in their climate temples, screaming for something to be done when any temperature sets a record – hot or cold – anywhere and at any time. Funny how records are meant to be broken for absolutely everything – but not for temperatures! Oh, no! We can’t have that!!
Here’s an interesting thought: Why is it that the globalist elite – as they shout about the planet’s demise from “man-made climate change” – buy up and live on beachfront properties that should, according to their own dire predictions, be underwater today? Yeah, they truly believe the sewage spewing from their hypocritical mouths.
For a rational, creation science perspective of “climate change,” I recommend The Climate Change Conflict: Keeping Cool over Global Warming by Dr. Jake Hebert.
The Unnatural Ways of the ‘Environmental Naturalist’
Consider the hypocrisy of the “environmental naturalist” and the insanity of their ways:
The proper course is forest management – clear-cutting and controlled burns of dead growth, etc. – but thanks to environmental liberal/progressive activism and leadership, these endeavors have been halted, and, consequently, here we are. Where’s the Bureau of Land Management (BLM)? Bureau? Yes. Land management? Hardly! Let’s face it: “Climate Change” is the clarion call of incompetent government – local, state, and federal. If one doesn’t think there is a political agenda for the mismanagement of our forests, I ask that they think this through for themselves and consider the end results for those seeking global control through the fear of so-called “climate emergencies.”
From the debunked hockey-stick graph to falsified and manipulated data at NOAA, the United Nations, and many other agencies, to every single dire prediction never coming to fruition, it should leave the reader as skeptical and as cynical as I am. (Of course, all of this – Surprise! – is “debunked” by liberal “fact-check” organizations, despite the facts — and we know that they would never cover anything up or lie for the powers that be.)
The simple truth is that the star in our solar system that earth orbits around has more to do with our world’s weather patterns than all of man’s feeble attempts to explain so-called “climate change” combined. Think James Carville when I say, “It’s the sun, stupid!”
People dying from extreme hot and cold weather, fires, and other weather-related natural disasters have been prevalent since the fall of man and will continue until the Lord Jesus Christ comes back to earth to set up His Millennial Kingdom. Until then, this is mankind’s lot in life, and no amount of hyperbole, generated fear, or attempt to remedy these age-long conditions will have any bearing on the fatalities generated from these calamities.
Beware, Saint, as this repeated cycle will continue despite the facts to the contrary. The winter is slowly coming upon us, and you can be sure the climate alarmists will be screaming about it being too cold outside! Never missing an opportunity, the incessant propaganda has already begun. Then, they’ll be at it again the following summer with it being too hot and with demands that, “We’ve got to do something about this!!” This is what they do, as they are as predictable as the changing seasons. But don’t fear them; fear God.
Thank you for allowing me the time to vent my accumulated lifelong frustrations on this exasperating topic – it’s been rather therapeutic for me.
With all of this said, there is always the very real possibility that something is taking place regarding the weather. But – if something is happening – it’s not what the climate alarmist globalists think it is. And that’s what the remainder of this article – Climate and Prophecy – is all about.
The Creator and His Prophetic Program
Never coming into the minds of these climate fanatics is that if something is going on, it just may be the Creator’s will as He sets up His end-time program. According to them, there’s no room for a Creator, and they can’t allow a divine foot in any door. From evolution to climate to morality and more, the world system and its leaders are gods unto themselves and the ultimate judges and dispensers of truth to all their subservient servants.
Regardless of their demented and grandiose globalist/totalitarian obsessions, let’s consider other reasons for any perceived climate issues – real or imagined – that the Christian should at least consider in light of our Creator and His Prophetic Program.
God’s End-Time Preparation
God, or God allowing Satan and/or man’s governments and militaries to manipulate weather patterns – if this is truly what we are witnessing – could be setting the stage for the end-times, and there’s nothing that can be done to hinder or stop the projecting forward of this divine preparation. Some would agree that God can be orchestrating these events – if they truly are manifesting themselves in this way – but others may ask, “How can Satan or man be intervening in this way?”
Satan: We see in Job 1, when all of the sons of God presented themselves to the Lord and Satan was with them, that God allowed Satan to test Job’s righteousness. Among the disasters that the Lord allowed Satan to inflict on Job and his family, some were weather-related:
“While he was yet speaking, there came also another, and said, The fire of God is fallen from heaven, and hath burned up the sheep, and the servants, and consumed them; and I only am escaped alone to tell thee… While he was yet speaking, there came also another, and said, Thy sons and thy daughters were eating and drinking wine in their eldest brother’s house: And, behold, there came a great wind from the wilderness, and smote the four corners of the house, and it fell upon the young men, and they are dead; and I only am escaped alone to tell thee” (Job 1:16, 18-19). (emphasis mine)
Satan, when God allows, is quite capable of manipulating the weather. God will also command His righteous angels to control weather patterns, as is noted throughout Revelation, even controlling the winds:
“And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree” (Revelation 7:1).
And, particularly and most notably, angels will manipulate weather at the end of the Tribulation:
“And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire. And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory” (Revelation 16:8-9). (emphasis mine)
Now this will be real “Global Warming”!
Men: The governments and militaries of the world have been zealously trying to manipulate weather patterns for over a hundred years. Most of this time has been spent militarily in an attempt to have an advantage over the enemy.
Political leaders and insiders during this same period of time have been attempting to manipulate the masses through climate hysteria in an effort to help usher in their New World Order using so-called “climate science” to fabricate this delusion for globalist ends. This is thoroughly documented in many books — two of my favorites are En Route to Global Occupation and The New World Religion by Gary Kah. Gary was an insider to this worldwide globalist movement, and he presents the reader with documentation, conversations, lectures, and speeches in his impeccably researched books.
Whether or not man’s governments and militaries have, indeed, found ways to manipulate weather patterns, for a number of nefarious reasons, may never be known for sure this side of heaven. But rest assured, they have been feverishly trying very hard to do just that.
The Tribulation Ramp-Up
One could suppose that any perceived climate change going on in today’s world – if true – may be a prelude to the Tribulation soon to come on the world. A Tribulation ramp-up, if you will. But the Word of God is somewhat silent on such a condition leading up to the time of Jacob’s trouble (Jeremiah 30:7) in regard to weather and climate, yet it wouldn’t be surprising to see at least a subtle acceleration as the day approaches.
Whatever the case may be in regard to weather in our day, climate during the seven-year Tribulation, as revealed in God’s Holy Word, will be strikingly intense on many different levels. But it won’t be because of increased “CO2 emissions” or other “greenhouse gasses” from simple, everyday living of human beings on the earth. It will be the logical outcome of God pouring out His wrath on a God-hating, Christ-rejecting world – in concert with Satan’s wrath and fury aimed squarely at God and man – as well as fallen man’s own rebellion against his Creator as he is guided and influenced by demonic delusion and deception. Let’s be honest here: The Tribulation is going to be the most horrendously wicked and evil time in human history.
“And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven” (Luke 21:11).
Famine has been a part of man’s historical saga since the fall. Whether war, drought, disease, or God’s personal will – all seen throughout Scripture and recorded history – the causes for famine are quite varied. Nevertheless, we do see famines following the rapture of the church and leading into and through the Tribulation. But whether or not these famines are climate-related is debatable.
“And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth” (Revelation 6:7-8). (emphasis mine)
During the breaking of the fourth seal by our Lord, the fourth horse and horseman brings famine as a means of death just prior to the beginning of the Tribulation and will certainly be present throughout. Climate could be one of the mitigating factors, but we must consider the first three horses (Revelation 6:2-6) that give us insight into how this famine came to be.
In summary, the first horse – the white horse – brings the Antichrist on the scene; the second horse – the red horse – brings violence and war upon the earth; and the third horse – the black horse – brings economic disaster upon the earth that obviously goes hand-in-hand with famine.
“And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer” (Revelation 6:1-2).
Violence and Wars:
“And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see. And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword” (Revelation 6:3-4).
“And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine” (Revelation 6:5-6). (emphasis mine)
These events, in and of themselves, can wholly be responsible for the famine that comes early in God’s judgment on the world, probably in between the rapture of the church and the beginning of the seven-year Tribulation. While the climate may be in some form of disarray, just considering the first three judgments are more than enough to bring famine upon the earth, even devoid of any weather-related complications.
Finally, there will be drought administered by the Two Witnesses during the first three and one-half years of the Tribulation; but again, this will be during the Tribulation:
“These [Two Witnesses] have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will” (Revelation 11:6).
So, in regard to the lead-up to the end-times in our day and age and so-called “climate change,” there really is only one reasonable possibility – other than a ramp-up leading into the Tribulation – and it doesn’t bode well, if true: JUDGMENT!
Wouldn’t we, as Christians, admit that the United States – and the world for that matter – is ripe for God’s judgment? Wouldn’t we expect to see weather-related catastrophes?
As is well documented in William Koenig’s Eye to Eye, every time the United States has tried to divide Israel or flat-out persecute and alienate Israel, America has paid a heavy price. This isn’t to say that there are more natural disasters – this is to say that the weather-related natural disasters are divinely timed catastrophes.
In addition to Israel, the immorality, Godlessness, and overall hate for anything Christian and good in the eyes of a Holy God is accelerating at unprecedented speed throughout the United States and the world. In Scripture, God declares:
“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!” (Isaiah 5:2-21).
How can one read this warning from our Lord and not see the United States today? Yes, we are worthy – and past ripe – for a complete and final judgment on our once God-fearing nation. God’s patience has run its course. This nation and the rest of the world have ignored the signs and warnings from God; and, in the process, the United States and the nations of the world have given their Creator the proverbial middle-finger and thumbed their nose at the Master of the Universe.
When it comes to weather, God has used this tool in His arsenal before. Here’s just one of many examples:
“And I also have given you cleanness of teeth in all your cities, and want of bread in all your places: yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the Lord. And also I have withholden the rain from you, when there were yet three months to the harvest: and I caused it to rain upon one city, and caused it not to rain upon another city: one piece was rained upon, and the piece whereupon it rained not withered” (Amos 4:6-7).
In light of how God judged other nations and cities of the past, are we really to believe we would be exempt from the same fate? No. So we should expect weather-related disasters to increase in frequency and intensity if, in fact, we are being judged.
Is it because of men and women living and working on the planet that these weather-related judgments were to occur? Absolutely not! For this, too, would be rejecting our Creator and His dominion mandate to “be fruitful and multiply” (Genesis 1:28 & Genesis 9:7). This is just one more reason why the climate alarmists are guilty of revolting against God – they are attributing what could be God’s judgment on rebellious nations to men and women obediently fulfilling God’s commandment.
The end result of all of this in regard to Climate and Prophecy is that there really isn’t anything in Scripture to signify any climate emergency on planet Earth until the Tribulation (unless, of course, we are under judgment – which is not only possible but could very well be the case. Even under judgment, though, any weather-related problems are not caused by people just living their lives on earth as the globalist cabal would have you to believe). These facts should lead the believer to understand that climate alarmists and the globalist elite who are pushing this narrative have an ulterior and nefarious intent of usurping power through fear of the weather, of all things, in their ambition for a Great Reset into a New World Order.
As Christians, we should be aware of the globalists’ agenda and schemes, and we should not be frightened by them. We have been warned in the Word of God of those things which are coming upon the world, and we should fear God and not man.
Climate is always changing and always has since the worldwide global flood of Noah’s day approximately 4,300-4,500 years ago. The one and only ice age began right after the flood, and climate has shifted on a global scale ever since. Regions that were once arid have become fertile. Other regions that were once fertile have become arid. This is the way of nature in our fallen world until our Lord comes back and sets things right once again. Weather-related disasters come and go, and there’s nothing man can do to halt this — try as he might.
I’ve been listening to the constant drum-beat of climate fanaticism and irrational fear of the weather my entire life, and I’ve got to tell you that, at times, I get quite weary of it all. But I think that’s the point. They want to wear everybody down by their constant chorus of alarmism while badgering and belittling everyone who doesn’t agree with them until society – one by one – gives up and ends up going along with their foolishness just to get some semblance of peace. But, please, don’t give in to their unfounded hype. If need be, just ignore them. Or, better yet, pray for them! Their fear of the weather is irrational and illogical. We should be encouraging them to fear God and their eternal destiny apart from Jesus Christ.
I can’t help but think of the irony that virtually everyone who takes The Mark of The Beast and survives until the end of the Tribulation – those that will experience the fourth vial the angel will pour out upon the sun and scorch men with fire and heat – will be the same people who were screaming “man-made Global Warming” before the rapture of the church. What irony, indeed!
Again, here’s the passage of Scripture:
“And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire. And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory” (Revelation 16:8-9). (emphasis mine)
If you are a believer in Jesus Christ and are apt to believe in a “man-made climate emergency” and fear the so-called consequences, then I have a question for you: “Why are you worried about the weather at all, Saint? Isn’t God still on His throne?”
I’m sure that as a good Christian, you are doing your best to be environmentally conscious and doing all in your power not to pollute and destroy the planet just like every God-fearing man and woman before you. Did God ever suggest that by honoring His mandate to be fruitful and multiply on the earth and that by living and interacting with nature and the world that you might be responsible for affecting the weather? No. No, He did not.
Don’t let your heart be troubled, beloved child of God. You’re doing just fine, and you’re not responsible for what the climate alarmists are charging you with. As a matter of fact, nothing out of the ordinary may be happening at all. But if it is, it has nothing to do with your living on this planet; it has to do with God’s will and in setting up His prophetic program for the last days and/or judgment on a God-hating and Christ-rejecting world.
So, forget the weather. Don’t get side-tracked, and stay focused on God’s commandment to love Him with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength, and love your neighbor as yourself. And, just as importantly, seek to fulfill The Great Commission and lead others to Jesus and Jesus to others. This is the sum of the matter.
May the Lord shower you with His love, grace, mercy, and shalom as you seek to grow His Kingdom by sharing the gospel of Christ with a lost, desperate, and dying world.

Three Simple Metrics to Gauge If We Are In The End Times – Todd Hampson - https://www.prophecynewswatch.com/article.cfm?recent_news_id=4998
Various industries use key metrics to gauge the overall health and trajectory of trends that impact their health and stability.
Financial analysts check the various alphabet indexes. Farmers keep an eye on the short and long term weather forecasts. Movie production companies, TV networks, and streaming services perform constant data analysis related to audience's felt needs and entertainment preferences. You get the picture. Name the industry and it is guaranteed there are a handful of key metrics they keep an eye on to forecast the future and make decisions.
Christianity is not an industry (or at least it shouldn't be), but as believers there are a handful of key metrics to keep our eyes on in order to understand where we are (generally speaking) on God's timetable. Before I get to those metrics, I want to argue the case that God does indeed have a plan--including a specific timeline that only He knows. I dare not date-set (Matthew 24:36), but God has. Here's the proof.
In Acts chapter 1--wedged in between the question from the apostles about Jesus if he was about to restore the kingdom to Israel and just before the familiar verse where Jesus gave his followers what is known as the great commission (1:8)--Jesus said to them, "It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority (Acts 1:7)."
Did you catch that? By logic, Jesus implied that the Father has times (plural) and dates (plural) set--including the day Israel's kingdom would be restored (and by extension other specific end-time dates).
The word used for times is chronos from which we get the word chronological. It has to do with sovereignly managed sequences. The word used for dates is kairos, or appointed times. It has to do with specific opportune times when things have come to a head (kairos comes from the word kara or head).
Think of chronos as the sequential time a stalk of wheat needs to grow. Think of kairos as the moment the wheat stalk sprouts its head and is ready for picking. God is sovereignly involved in both, but God-ordained chronos events always ultimately lead to God-ordained kairos events--when things have reached their designated end.
If you think about it, that makes total sense. God is (among other attributes) omniscient--all-knowing. He is also outside of time, for He created it. In any case, God the Father knows ALL of the key dates (rapture, return, start of the kingdom age, etc.), but we do not. We walk by faith as we wait. But notice also, that Jesus didn't dissuade them from asking such questions about the timing of eschatological events.
We find the same phenomena when the disciples asked Jesus about end-time events in what is known as the Olivet Discourse (Matthew 24, Mark 13, Luke 21) where Jesus provided his second longest recorded teaching--and it was all about the signs and details of the end in response to the disciple's questions!
For the apostles, they were not to worry about either, because in the very next verse (1:8) they hear Jesus's last words before he left the earth that they would be his witnesses to the world--beginning where they were (in Jerusalem) and then ultimately to the ends of the earth. (By the way, Acts 1:8 also serves as the outline for the book of Acts--beginning in Jerusalem and ending in Rome.)
This "witnessing" would take time. We call that the church age. But following the church age will be the kingdom age. The chronos of the church age would have a logical kairos end before the kingdom age can begin. We seem to be nearing the kairos moments related to the end of the church age.
Now back to those metrics. There are a handful of key factors we can keep an eye on to gauge where we are on God's timetable. We can't know the day or hour, but Scripture tells us we can know the season (Matthew 16:3, Luke 12:56, Hebrews 10:25).
This list of metrics is by no means exhaustive, but is meant to provide an easy-to-follow, clear, and compelling list that can show us how close we must be. If you have never studied eschatology but are--perhaps for the first time--realizing that there is something different about the times in which we live, then this post is for you!
Here are 3 simple, clear, compelling metrics to evaluate for yourself to see if you think we are rapidly heading for the kairos moment of the church age as things seem to be coming to a head.
Every Old Testament prophet except for Jonah predicted that Israel would become a nation again in the end times after a long period of time when the Jewish people were scattered all over the world with no homeland. This is exactly what happened on May 14, 1948. That was a kairos moment--an appointed date. In fact, one Old Testament prophet said that Israel would be "born in a day (Isaiah 66:8)."
The prophecies that foretold Israel would be reborn all describe this super-sign event in the context of the end-times. Joel 3:1-2 even provides time clues, letting us know that when Israel would become a nation again, that would be in the same general time frame that all end-time events would take place.
"In those days and at that time, when I restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem, I will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. There I will put them on trial for what they did to my inheritance, my people Israel, because they scattered my people among the nations and divided up my land.
There are scores of specific details the Bible prophesied about Israel and the Jewish people both chronologically, and in terms of special specific appointed moments that were prophesied in Scripture. If you have never taken the time to study this aspect of the Bible, I highly recommend it. Your faith will be strengthened and your eyes will be opened like never before.
2. GLOBALISM (vs. National Sovereignty)
When most people hear the term globalism, they usually just think of the modern interconnectivity of global trade, commerce, travel, and culture. But what I'm referring to here is the widespread, specific, and intentional efforts of the world's most powerful influencers (international bankers, political leaders, and global-scale business leaders) to bring about a one-world government.
Please fact check me on this. Do not take my word for it. Dig into the founding documents, websites, articles, and interviews of people in (and/or connected to) these organizations and initiatives and you will see that it is an established fact that they are trying (more now than ever) to bring about a one-world global government.
It is important to note that this is not a left vs. right issue. Prominent people from both sides of the aisle are globalists.
This is just the tip of the iceberg. Those are what you might call open globalist groups and initiatives. There are many smaller entities that coordinate to assist the organizations and initiatives listed above. So, what does this have to do with eschatology?
Well, the Bible teaches that after the rapture the chaos will quickly lead to a one-world government (see Daniel chapters 2 and 7; Revelation chapters 13, 17) which will install a single leader whom we commonly refer to as the antichrist. Don't let the familiarity of those terms and passages breed contempt or form caricatured notions in your mind. Look around you as you research the various globalist initiatives.
In order for a one-world government to almost immediately form after the rapture--it is necessary that the plans and framework for such a thing must already be in place. And they are--along with all of the technology necessary to pull it off. These facts are out in the open for all who are willing to take a look. This explains why great lengths are currently being taken to weaken America's national sovereignty.
Our country is quickly becoming a shell of its former self. This fact is sad but true--and it lines up with Scripture as you see further below. Thankfully, our true citizenship is in Heaven. We can draw comfort from that even as our heart breaks as we watch our once strong country weaken at an unprecedented rate.
3. THE EZEKIEL 38 WAR
I'll make this section as brief as I can, but if you have never studied it or heard about it before, you'll need to take some time to process the details. Ezekiel 38 and 39 contain the most detailed account of any end-time battle. I have written about it extensively in books and articles, so I'll keep it brief and high-level for the purposes of this article. Ezekiel 38 and 39 detail an end-time battle that will take place after the people of Israel are back in their homeland having been scattered and mistreated all over the world for a long period of time. Check. That part of the prophecy is fulfilled.
After returning to their homeland and recovering from war (ie. WWII, Israel's War of Independence, The Six-Day War of 1966, the Yom Kippur War, etc.) and becoming militarily strong and financially secure (check/fulfilled), a group of nations that do not border Israel will be led by Russia, Iran, and Turkey to attack Israel specifically from her north--but Syria will not be one of them.
All of the nations listed are Islamic nations who currently want to destroy Israel--except for Russia who will be there leading the pack to take something valuable from Israel (oil, gas, natural resources, technology, et all). Russia will serve as a guard for the others, but the main partnership will be with Russia, Iran, and Turkey. This partnership is currently in place and Syria is merely a puppet state being run by those 3 nations.
On the opposite side of the equation, nobody will come to Israel's rescue (but God...and He will show up in a major way). Saudi Arabia, the gulf states, England, and "her young lions" (possibly America) will merely protest the invasion but will not come to Israel's aid in any meaningful way.
If this attack were to occur today--this is exactly what would take place. The stage for this end-time confrontation is almost fully set. I believe it will be a power grab in the after math of the rapture. Even the recent horrific abandonment of the people (and billions of dollars of US military equipment) of Afghanistan further set the stage for Ezekiel 38.
The Convergence of Events
Those are 3 metrics we can keep an eye on with relative simplicity to see how close we are to the events of the tribulation--and keep in mind that the rapture will occur prior to the tribulation period. This unprecedented convergence of events (and there are dozens more) HAS NEVER BEFORE OCCURRED IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD. That should get our attention.
Before I close, I'd like you to read one more section of Scripture carefully and slowly and see if it does not describe our day exactly. These are specifically stated as end-time attributes. They have always been true in pockets and in seasons, but in our day these conditions are global and worsening--at the very same time everything else is converging.
In 2 Timothy 3:1-5 we read, "But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God--having a form of godliness but denying its power. "
Now For Some Good News
Lastly, some good news. God's appointed times are in His hands--and so is your life. You are here at this time on purpose and for a reason. We need not fear. I've been told that the Bible says 365 times not to fear--one for each day of the year, plus an extra one in case you need a spare! We can rest assured that God will act at the very time we are ready and his perfect timing has arrived. If you do not know Christ, now is the time to receive him as your savior. Don't wait. The massive convergence of specifically prophesied end-time events is upon us. Turn to Christ today.

The Global Energy Crisis Is Going To Take “The Everything Shortage” To An Entirely New Level - by Michael Snyder - http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/the-global-energy-crisis-is-going-to-take-the-everything-shortage-to-an-entirely-new-level/
This is going to be one tough winter. On top of everything else we are facing, a very alarming energy crisis is rapidly growing all over the world. Supplies of natural gas and coal are getting tighter by the day, and this is dramatically affecting manufacturing in major exporters such as China. So that means that less stuff is going to be coming across the ocean in the months ahead, and that means that the shortages in our stores are going to be getting even worse. This is really happening, and we are going to have to deal with it.
Of course store shelves are already getting pretty bare all around the country. They are calling it “the everything shortage”, and it has been intensifying with each passing week.
I have so much to talk about that I am not even sure where to begin, and so I am just going to start with the the Bigley Piggly Wiggly in Charleston, West Virginia. Store owner Jeff Joseph says that a shortage of Gatorade is one of the biggest issues that he is currently wrestling with…
If you’ve been to the grocery store lately, you may have noticed some of your favorite products aren’t available. At the Bigley Piggly Wiggly in Charleston, WV the section where they keep Gatorade is close to empty.
“Who would think that Gatorade would be a problem to get in the store? But apparently, it is and it is something that we have been wrestling with for quite some time now,” said Jeff Joseph, store owner.
Day after day, I see more local news reports like this. I just picked this one out because I really like the name of the store.
And my readers continue to send me emails about what conditions are like where they live. One reader that is located in Pennsylvania was deeply alarmed by a lack of milk and dog food during her last visit to the supermarket…
Yesterday, I was at our Giant supermarket on Linglestown Road a few miles from Harrisburg, PA. It is the largest Giant in the area. I was at the milk section, there were maybe more than 10 empty rows with no milk in them. My husband wanted chocolate milk, they had only one brand. I was looking for dog treats, and found out they moved the aisle, there was not as many brands. They are taking the dog food bags and moving them out to the front of the shelf to make them look full, but there are no bags behind them. We like Arizona canned tea, but I had to settle for a big bottle instead. Canned tea is hard to get. The aisle with the toilet paper and towels was half empty. I wanted some Nutter Butter cookies (like I need them), but they had none.
In southwestern Arkansas, it sounds like things are even worse. We had been warned that there would be a shortage of toys during this holiday season, and one of my readers says that she is already noticing a huge change…
It is horrifying to walk through a Dollar General Store down here in Southwestern Arkansas. There are bare shelves, the toy aisle, normally flooded this time of year in anticipation of Christmas…there is nothing there, like what should normally be there. Brookshire’s is the premium market down here…they do not have frozen turkeys, and the frozen chicken that we purchased–Tyson chicken—I bought a five-pound flat of drumsticks…there were still feathers on some of the pieces of chicken. I had to wash, pluck, and wow…just wow….what the factories must be like these days is all I’m saying.
We have never seen anything like this before, and the experts are telling us that the months in front of us are going to be even worse.
These days, even big corporate news outlets are constantly running stories about the shortages. The following is an excerpt from one report that was entitled “America Is Running Out of Everything”…
I visited CVS last week to pick up some at-home COVID-19 tests. They’d been sold out for a week, an employee told me. So I asked about paper towels. “We’re out of those too,” he said. “Try Walgreens.” I drove to a Walgreens that had paper towels. But when I asked a pharmacist to fill some very common prescriptions, he told me the store had run out. “Try the Target up the road,” he suggested. Target’s pharmacy had the meds, but its front area was alarmingly barren, like the canned-food section of a grocery store one hour before a hurricane makes landfall.
In the past, any shortages were always very temporary.
But these shortages aren’t going to go away any time soon.
In fact, that same article that I just quoted openly admitted that “this is the economy now”…
This is the economy now. One-hour errands are now multi-hour odysseys. Next-day deliveries are becoming day-after-next deliveries. That car part you need? It’ll take an extra week, sorry. The book you were looking for? Come back in November. The baby crib you bought? Make it December. Eyeing a new home-improvement job that requires several construction workers? Haha, pray for 2022.
Even the usually optimistic talking heads on television are warning us that the colossal problems that have caused this epic global supply chain crisis are not going to resolved for the foreseeable future.
Meanwhile, as I noted above, a very frightening global energy crisis threatens to take “the everything shortage” to an entirely new level.
On Thursday, the Wall Street Journal ran an article entitled “Natural-Gas Shortage Sets Off Scramble Ahead of Winter” that really freaked a lot of people out. All over the planet, nations are feverishly trying to secure sufficient supplies of natural gas for the months ahead. Normally there is a spike of demand in the middle of winter, but at this moment we are nowhere close to that point. In fact, summer just officially ended a couple of weeks ago.
So if things are this bad already, what are we going to be facing in a few months?
At the same time, a very serious shortage of coal is pushing prices up to absolutely absurd levels…
Australia’s Newcastle thermal coal, a global benchmark, is trading at $202 a metric ton, three times higher than at the end of 2019. Global production of coal, which generates around 40% of the world’s electricity, is about 5% below pre-pandemic levels.
In Europe, the rising prices for coal and other energy resources have hit factory output and driven household energy bills higher. Major coal importers in Asia, including Japan and South Korea, are jostling to secure supplies.
We have never seen an energy crisis this severe in modern times, and it is already having a dramatic impact on manufacturing in China…
In recent weeks, however, officials have begun a much more aggressive rationing program (Figure 1), with factories in much of Guangdong now seeing only 1-2 days per week of power use allowed. Similar situations are reportedly occurring in Jiangsu, Hubei, and Fujian provinces, all major manufacturing regions. As just one example, one of my US-based import customers has reported that a key supplier in Jiangsu is down to a single day per week of power availability. Limited-but-expanded power rationing is also occurring in Zhejiang, Shandong, Liaoning, and other important heavy industrial, chemical, and energy-product hubs.
So what does this mean?
It means that China is going to be exporting a lot less stuff to us, and so our store shelves will continue to get barer and barer.
For more than a decade I have been warning that we should have never allowed ourselves to become so dependent on Chinese manufacturing. But of course most people didn’t want to listen to “alarmists” like me.
Unfortunately, the truth is now evident to everyone.
The “new normal” is here, and it is going to be exceedingly painful.
Whatever you think that you are going to need for the winter months, go out and get it now.
The shortages are just beginning, and the global economy will never be the same after this.
Fearful Forecasts/Prophetic Pronouncements - By Terry James - https://www.raptureready.com/2021/10/07/fearful-forecasts-prophetic-pronouncements-by-terry-james/
An incendiary heads-up made our Rapture Ready News headlines recently: “Humanity on brink of nuclear annihilation with threat highest for 40 YEARS, UN chief warns in chilling message.”
The story was no less troubling than the headline:
HUMANITY is on the brink of “nuclear annihilation” with the threat reaching its highest boiling point in forty years, a top UN chief has warned.
The nuclear arms race has the globe teetering “unacceptably close” to mass atomic destruction, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said.

He urged nations that have “stockpiled nearly 14,000 nuclear weapons” to sign the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty to avoid an international crisis.
It comes as wealthy countries continue to show off a string of advanced destructive arms that could result in catastrophic conflict.
He addressed the issue in a powerful tweet pleading with global powers.
“Now is the time to lift the cloud of nuclear conflict for good, eliminate nuclear weapons from our world, and usher in a new era of trust and peace,” he wrote. (Olivia Burke and Aliki Kraterou, News Corp—The Sun, September 29, 2021)
Peace and safety are at the top of the New World Order elite in light of things happening within the ranks of CCP leadership. China seems to be deliberately creating a war-like atmosphere by sending fighter aircraft over the territorial boundaries of Taiwan. They have apparently flown bombers into airspace claimed by the tiny state that broke away from China, as it was then known as Formosa.
Many observers believe China’s increasing aggression was the result of the weakness displayed by the Biden administration. The militancy has definitely increased significantly since the days when the Trump administration stood staunchly in keeping a strong naval presence in the area of the South China Sea and waters around the area of Taiwan.
The Chinese government is now emboldened to make threats most politically conservative observers believe would never have been made while Donald Trump was commander-in-chief. For example, Beijing’s former ambassador to the UN, Sha Zukang, said China must make the first nuclear strike against the US if Joe Biden continues to defend Taiwan.
This sort of rhetoric has set in motion all sorts of fears among the weak-kneed among the political left and the diplomatic appointees from this and past administrations.
Even considering the fact that China has a much smaller nuclear capability than the US, which has by far the largest nuclear force on earth, there is fear China will initiate a nuclear conflict.
During a meeting of the China Arms Control and Disarmament Association in Beijing last week, Sha Zukang said: “The policy not to be the first to use nuclear weapons unconditionally has given China the moral high ground internationally.” But in the next breath, the Chinese say they must reconsider this policy if Biden continues to defend Taiwan against Chinese invasion to take back their rightful territory.
Another worry to those forecasting imminent war that will ignite all-out nuclear warfare are the reports coming out of Iran. Strange things are happening there, and more and more, Israel is suspected by the Israel-hating UN and others as the cause of those strange happenings.
The following news item tells more.
A fire erupted in an IRGC facility in Iran on Sunday leaving two dead and one injured. On Thursday, Tel Aviv-based ImageSat International—ISI, a commercial servicer for satellite images—estimated that the facility was not just any military compound—it was a secret missile base.
ISI reveals: On Monday, 27 September 2021, a mysterious explosion shook western Tehran, Iran. According to ISI intelligence report, the explosion occurred at an IRGC secret missile base of Shahid Hemmat Industrial Group.
It is still unclear why the fire erupted on Sunday.
A series of explosions and fires have hit industrial sites across Iran, including a number of petrochemical plants, in recent months and over the past year.
Iranian officials have referred to most of the cases as incidents or accidents, although some reports have claimed that at least some of them involved foul play.
The aging infrastructure in Iran has also been blamed for at least some of the incidents. Frequent blackouts have plagued Iran recently amid a heatwave. (“Fire in Iran occurred at secret IRGC missile base,” Israeli report by JP staff, Jerusalem Post, September 30, 2021)
It seems that Israel’s IDF and more surreptitious entities within that force might be assisting the Lord in “Restraining” things moving ahead of Heaven’s prophetic schedule for the wrap-up of the Church Age. Our friend Bill Salus has long kept his thumb on the pulse of the developing things in the Middle East and wonders frequently if Israel is about to begin fulfilling prophecies involving that area of ancient Persia—in Elam, for example.
One thing we can be sure of is that there will not be all-out nuclear war this side of the Rapture. China will fulfill its devastating role sometime near the end of the Tribulation, as given in Revelation chapters 9 and 16. The kings of the east force will kill fully one-third of earth’s population at that future time.
There will be no all-out nuclear war between Israel and her enemies, even if there are other conflicts. Prophetic Scripture is quite specific about these conflicts and how they will play out.
So we must, as believers, not listen to the fearful forecasts, but rather to God’s prophetic pronouncements.
Daily Jot: The Farm Chronicles: The Great Western Tour - Bill Wilson – www.dailyjot.com
From time to time, I have referred to our 1963 Great Western Tour. This was a wonderful adventure to every state west of the Mississippi. It was far different than today. Roads were narrow. Gas stations were far apart. Facilities were primitive. People were friendly. A whole different world with a lot of amazing territory that hadn’t been “settled” or “domesticated” for all that long. If you can think back to your childhood and even remember the technology that not yet had been developed, it is an amazing time. Our trip was a big deal. It made several local newspapers when we returned in mid-July. I thought it would be interesting for you to journey back in time with me to this era as recounted by the Ravenna Record Courier .
“Mr. and Mrs. Carl Wilson and son Billy and Mr. and Mrs. Warren McCarthy, daughter Cathy and son Billy have returned from an 8,000 mile trip through the west. Each family traveled in their own camper, staying over night in state parks and cooking their own meals. They traveled south through Texas, in Oklahoma they visited with McCarthy’s aunt and uncle, Mr. and Mrs. Drew Youker, Ponca City, then on to Arizona to visit Mrs. Wilson’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Albin Humble, in Phoenix. After viewing the rugged beauty of Grand Canyon, they traveled to California where they took in the sights of Los Angeles and San Francisco. The Children and adults of the party were very impressed with Disneyland and Knott’s Berry Farm.
“The families motored along the California coast through the majestic Redwood Forests and viewed the Pacific Ocean. On their way through Oregon, they visited Wilson’s aunt Mrs. Florence Richards, in Corrallis. They were guests in the homes of Mr. and Mrs. Bill Rosenburg and Mr. and Mrs. Lou Richards and Mrs. Rose Phillips in Ellensburg, Wash. In Spokane, Wash., the travelers visited the largest concrete dam in the world, Coulee Dam. They visited Glacier National, Yellow Stone, and Grand Teton National Parks. While in Wyoming, they saw a real “honest to goodness” western rodeo. The next stop was at Mt. Rushmore National Memorial Park in the Black Hills of North Dakota. While in the state, they traveled through the miles of Badlands and saw many beautiful and impressive rock formations…”
The article also mentions my brother Larry “who stayed home to take care of his father’s gas and oil business.” And that “Charles, the oldest son of the Wilsons and his wife Diedre came home from Ashland to welcome his parents and little brother home Sunday.” The story even mentioned that Chuck was in his senior year at Ashland and that Diedre was working as a secretary at the college. Seems my mother’s public relations fingerprints were all over this story! Psalm 8:3-4 says, “When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and stars, which you have set in place, what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them?” When looking out from the window of our camper at the vast Western terrain, even at 8 years old, I was awestruck of God’s creation. The memories could fill a book.
Daily Devotion: Jealous In A Good Way - by Greg Laurie – www.harvest.org
Did God’s people stumble and fall beyond recovery? Of course not! They were disobedient, so God made salvation available to the Gentiles. But he wanted his own people to become jealous and claim it for themselves. —Romans 11:11
https://harvest.org/resources/devotion/jealous-in-a-good-way/ - Listen
On a trip to Israel some years ago, I had a Jewish guide named David. He had been our guide quite often over the years, and we had become very good friends. But David loved to debate. So we’d sit in the front of the bus and discuss all sorts of things, including Jesus and the Jewish people. Yet I never seemed to make any headway with David.
One day one of our discussions went for almost an hour, and when we got off the bus, the driver said to me, “I was listening very carefully to your discussion with the guide, David.” Then he said, “I’m jealous of your relationship with God. I would like you to come over to my home and meet my family, and I want you tell them what you were saying to David.”
So I went over to his home. He had a beautiful family—a very large family as I recall. His wife started serving the food, which was very good, and more and more courses kept coming. Finally, my host said, “Now, talk to my family.” And I had the privilege of telling his entire family about Jesus the Messiah and how He could change all of their lives.
That experience reminded me of a verse from Romans 11: “Did God’s people stumble and fall beyond recovery? Of course not! They were disobedient, so God made salvation available to the Gentiles. But he wanted his own people to become jealous and claim it for themselves” (verse 11 NLT).
I became a Christian because I admired the Christians on my high school campus from a distance. They had what I wanted. When a Christian walks with God, it should be the most attractive thing ever for a nonbeliever.
If you want to win some, then be winsome. Talk about your faith, and let it permeate every area of your life.
