Earthquakes and the Harpazo – A.V. Rauf - https://bibleprophecyfortoday.com/2023/02/11/earthquakes-and-the-harpazo/
Luke 21:11: And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.
Mark 13:8: For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows.
As we are now two months not the year 2023 A.D., why are earthquakes and volcanic activity on the rise? The Bible speaks of “earthquakes in various places” at the end of the age. As of late, most of the of the earth’s tectonic plates as well as the major and minor faults around the entire globe have been extremely active.
Just this past week a massive earthquake measured at 7.8 on the Richter scale occurred in south-central Turkey near the border with Syria followed by a 7.5 magnitude earthquake the following day. It was the single most powerful quake in the entire Middle East since at least 1939.
The earthquake was so massive that it is being reported that a large portion of Turkey moved as much as 10 feet westward! Not only that, but the entire region has experienced several thousand aftershocks. The aftershocks were the catalyst for many of the buildings collapsing. As of today, the total estimated casualties is nearing 50,000. Our prayers go out to the regions and the people that have been affected by this tragedy.
You see, it’s one thing if an earthquake takes place in the North Pole or Alaska or even Antartica. But when you begin to see a series of seismic activity that take place near the HOLY LAND, take notice!!!
Now if one were to look deeper into the matter from a Biblical (or shall I say eschatological) vantage point you will discover that this seismic activity was not just felt in Turkey………The earthquake was also felt in: Lebanon, Syria, Cyprus, Lebanon, most of Israel and Jordan, and parts of Armenia, Georgia, Iran, Iraq, Egypt, and Saudi Arabia. Even in Israel it was reported that not one, not to but three, three earthquakes have occurred from the Golan Heights area in the north to Eilat in the south. Many of the above mentioned regions are mentioned in the Bible !!!
As a matter of fact, seismic activity has picked up tremendously in the Holy Land as 30 more earthquakes have been registered according to the Geological Survey of Israel and continued aftershocks have occurred, are occurring and will continue to occur in this region :
It is very likely that the earthquakes that took place last week, specifically, may now have put into motion tectonic activity leading up to the bigger ones to come, as prophesied in Bible.
I believe that the Early Church and the Church in the last days will have many characteristics in common. In Matthew 24, Jesus stated the Gospel of the Kingdom would be preached unto all nations as a witness just like the Apostles took the Gospel throughout the known world which in that time was mainly the Roman Empire in constituency. There was an uptick in seismic and volcanic activity and this same phenomenon will be recapitulated prior to return of the LORD.
Timing is everything. That being said, I am convinced that is this is all in conjunction with the nearness of the Return of the LORD and a prelude to the coming SEAL/TRUMPET/BOWL judgments as listed in the Book of Revelation.
In addition, in Matthew 24, Christ told His disciples of the signs that would precede His Second Coming. In verse 7, He stated, “and there shall be…earthquakes, in diverse places.”
This meant earthquakes would take place in various places—scattered throughout the world—and would increase in frequency as the time of His Return drew near. Let me also add that not only can the earth tremble and quake at God’s presence, but volcanoes erupt as well.
Nahum 1:5—The mountains quake at him, and the hills melt, and the earth is burned at his presence, yea, the world, and all that dwell therein.
Had earthquakes been as prolific throughout history as they are today, then they would not indicate that the end of the age was near. They are much more common now than at any other time in the history of the world.
An earthquake played a prominent role at Jesus’ Crucifixion:
Matthew 27:50-54—Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost. 51 And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent; 52 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, 53 And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many. 54 Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God.
In similar fashion yet another earthquake took place at the resurrection of Jesus Christ 3 days later:
Matthew 28:1-6—In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulcher. 2 And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it. 3 His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow: 4 And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men. 5 And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. 6 He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.
There was an earthquake at the death of Jesus Christ. There was an earthquake at the resurrection of Jesus Christ. I for one, am of the impression that there will most likely be seismic activity of gargantuan proportions when the Dead in Christ (many whom are buried underground) are resurrected at the Rapture of the Church. Interesting speculation Indeed!!!!
1 Thessalonians 4:14-17—For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus. For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep. For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.
Interestingly enough, a major earthquake will accompany the very return of the Lord Jesus Christ at His Second Coming when the Mud of Olives will be split in two as Jesus sets foot back on this earth:
Zechariah 14:4-9—-Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. 2 For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city. 3 Then shall the Lord go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle. 4 And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.
5 And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the Lord my God shall come, and all the saints with thee. 6 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light shall not be clear, nor dark: 7 But it shall be one day which shall be known to the Lord, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light. 8 And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be. 9 And the Lord shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one Lord, and his name one.
The book of Revelation foretells FIVE specific powerful earthquakes preceding and surrounding Christ’s Return. Each is unique, and occurs at a particular juncture of God’s final prophetic timeline. Let’s take a look at ONE of them:
In Chapter 11 of the Book of Revelation you notice a major earthquake that takes place during the seven year tribulation period AFTER the Church is caught up and this involves the two prophets and their ministry as well as the Anti-Christ:
Revelation 11:3-13—And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.4 These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.
5 And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.
6 These 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.7 And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.
8 And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.9 And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.
10 And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.11 And after three days and an half the spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.
12 And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.13 And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven.
You will notice that the two Witnesses of God (whom any Bible scholars state will be Elijah and either Moses or Enoch) perform their ministry and prophesy for 42 months, or 3 1/2 years.At the conclusion of their ministry they are overcome and killed by Antichrist who is indwelt by the beast from the pit aka Abaddon/Apollyon. They lie dead on the street in Jerusalem for three and one-half days when the Spirit of God resurrects both of the Two Witnesses and they are harpazoed or raptured into heaven with the command “Come up hither” ….The same phrase mentioned in Revelation 4 when the Church is harpazoed or raptured into Heaven (Revelation 4:1–After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither….)
So, when the two witnesses are caught up, the resulting earthquake occurs in Jerusalem decimating ten percent of the city and killing seven thousand residents.
Now, In the Old Testament, many of God’s prophets spoke about earthquakes, especially the final, greatest one preceding Christ’s Return.
Isaiah 13:13: “I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the Lord of hosts, and in the day of His fierce anger.”
Isaiah 24:19-20: “The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is clean dissolved, the earth is moved exceedingly. The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage…”
Ezekiel 38:20: “…all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at My presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.”
Joel 3:16: “The Lord also shall roar out of Zion, and utter His voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake …”
Haggai 2:6-7: “For thus says the Lord of hosts; Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land; and I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations [Jesus Christ] shall come…”
God very soon will involve Himself in the affairs of this world in a way He has never done before. Earthquakes and volcanoes will play a major role in what is coming…………….
Romans 8:19-23—For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. 20 For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, 21 Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. 22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. 23 And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.
1 John 3:1-3—1 Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. 3 And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.
As fearful and destructive as they may appear to be, God in his infinite wisdom and sovereignty will use earthquakes to reshape the earth’s surface, in preparation for the greatest time of peace and abundance that mankind has ever experienced.
This indeed is a time that the whole world can truly look forward to. And it is here! The shaking has already begun.
The Tribulation Has Not Begun—But It’s Coming Soon - By Amir Tsarfati - https://harbingersdaily.com/worldview-with-amir-tsarfati-the-tribulation-has-not-begun-but-its-coming-soon/
Shalom from my home in Israel! It has been another very busy news week in our world. It is times like this that my volume of inquiries rises with many asking the question, “Amir, has the tribulation begun?” I understand the concern. The ground in Turkey and Syria can’t stop shaking. Now the earthquakes are being felt in Lebanon and Israel, and even all the way down to Egypt. And it’s not just the Middle East that’s acting like it’s on a trampoline. The Philippines, Indonesia, Oman, and other places around the world are shaking, too.
But it’s more than plate shifting that’s causing people to ask that question. Globalism is on the rise, while morality is plunging. The Ezekiel 38 nations of Russia, Iran, Turkey, and Sudan are all building alliances. Technology is advancing to the point where is it quite conceivable that the world will soon see a global currency, a unified belief system, and a microchipped populace. While Putin calls his year-old excursion into Ukraine a “military operation”, we all know that it is a war. And there are plenty of other areas around the world that are giving us rumors of wars.
It is because of what is happening in the world around us that I have written my next book, Has the Tribulation Begun?, which is releasing in May. But, don’t worry, I won’t make you wait two months for an answer to the question. No, the tribulation has not begun. How can I be sure? Because I am still here on this earth. The rapture must precede the tribulation. No rapture? No tribulation. What my new book delves into is why there is a need for a tribulation, how we can know that the time is close, how we can be sure that there is a rapture, and what will those who are left behind experience? It is the most evangelistic of my books, because the more I study the tribulation the greater grows my desire for those that I know and love to not have to experience it.
No, the tribulation has not begun. But it’s coming soon. So, let’s redeem the time we have left by sharing the hope that is found in Jesus the Messiah and the promise of eternal life that is extended to all people.
Romans 10:11-13 KJV – “For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
7,700 Earthquakes Have Shaken the Middle East Since February 7
Turkey and northern Syria continue to be ground zero for ground-shaking. Since the first two major quakes occurred on February 7, there have been more than 7,700 aftershocks. The largest, measuring 6.4, struck near the Turkish city of Antakya on Monday, killing six people. It took down dozens more buildings, many in Hatay province near the Syrian border, and was felt in Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, Israel, and Egypt. The death toll of the original quake has climbed to more than 45,000 people, with 122,000 more injured.
Israel Targets Iranian Drone Experts in Syria
Israeli fighter jets killed at least 5 and wounded 15 more in a strike on the Kafar Sousah neighborhood of Damascus. Targeted was a meeting of Iranian experts on the development of drones. Some reports indicate that it was actually eight high ranking officials of the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) who were killed, while others say that a Syrian engineer and an Iranian official were among the dead. The area hit serves as a security zone housing offices and branches of the IRGC’s Quds Force. Per policy, Israel declined to admit its role in the attack. Russia later condemned Israel’s actions, calling it a “flagrant violation” of international law.
Netanyahu’s Justice Reform Bill Clears First Hurdle
Early Tuesday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s judicial reform bill passed in its first reading. Heavily attacked by the Left, this bill will limit the expanding power of Israel’s judiciary by reducing the types of laws the High Court can review and taking the power to appoint judges away from other judges and putting it in the hands of the legislature. There are still a second and a third reading of the bill which must pass for the reform to go into effect.
UN Security Council Issues Statement Denying Jewish Right to Live in Historic Homeland
The United States joined other member nations of the UN Security Council in denouncing Israeli settlements in their historic homeland. The statement expressed “deep concern and dismay” over Israel’s decision to expand settlements, while ignoring the recent terrorist attacks against Israel by Palestinian groups and the fact that the Palestinian Authority subsidizes terrorism and pays the families of terrorists. Prime Minister Netanyahu criticized the denouncement, saying, “The statement should not have been made and the United States should not have joined it.”
IRGC Attacks Israeli-Owned Tanker Using Kamikaze Drones
The Campo Square, a Liberian-flagged oil tanker owned by an Israeli, was the victim of an attack by Shahed-136 suicide drones operated by the Iranian IRGC. These are the same drones being shipped by Iran to Russia for use in the conflict with Ukraine. There were no casualties or damages reported.
Sanction Battle Between the EU and Iran
The European Union on Monday expanded their sanctions related to Iran’s violent suppression of those protesting the September 2022 death of Mahsa Amini. Asset freezes and visa bans were imposed on 32 more Iranian officials, bringing the total sanctioned to 196 individuals and 33 entities. In response the next day, Iran issued retaliatory sanctions against 23 people and 13 industries from the EU and the UK. Regarding the protests, after a temporary lull they have once again fired up in earnest.
IAEA Admits 84% Uranium Enrichment by Iran
The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) admitted to detecting uranium enriched to 84% at an Iranian nuclear facility. This means that this atomic watchdog agency is one of the few organizations that hasn’t quite realized that Iran has had weapons-grade 90% enriched uranium for a while now.
Iran’s Assassination Plot Against Diaspora Jews
A plot which involved Iran mapping the location of high-target diaspora Jews for assassination has been uncovered. The plan, revealed at a high-level meeting in Tehran, was intended to be implemented should Israel attack Iran’s nuclear facilities. Meanwhile, the Biden administration is pressuring the UK to refrain from designating this same IRGC as a terrorist group, this despite the fact that the European Parliament has recently made that designation as did the US under the previous administration. Washington is choosing to ignore Tehran’s assassination plots against innocent civilians in the hopes that somehow they can resurrect a failed nuclear deal with Iran.
High-Ranking Israeli Politicians Recommend Military Aid to Ukraine Following Visit
Yuli Edelstein and Ze’ev Elkin, two high level Israeli lawmakers, met with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy in Kyiv on Monday. Both men are originally from Ukraine and lead the Ukrainian parliamentary friendship group in the Knesset. Following the meeting, they issued a joint statement which read, in part, “Israel has provided and will continue to provide extensive humanitarian aid to Ukraine, but, in our opinion, it is not enough.” The statement went on to encourage the Israeli government to provide military technologies to Ukraine to help in the war effort, a sentiment that is sure to get Israel into even deeper water with Russia.
US President Joe Biden Makes Surprise Visit to Ukraine
The day before the one year anniversary of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, President Joe Biden made a surprise visit to Kyiv. In a meeting with Ukraine’s President Zelenskyy, Biden reaffirmed America’s support for the nation and pledged another half-billion dollars in military assistance. Moscow was informed of the visit ahead of time and they extended the courtesy of taking a brief break from their recent favorite pastime of raining down cruise missiles on the capital city.
US Warns China Against Supplying Arms to Russia
After US intelligence indicated that China is considering aiding Russia militarily in their effort against Ukraine, Secretary of State Anthony Blinken made a statement Sunday saying that such an action would not be good. Blinken said, “It was very important for me to share very clearly with [senior Chinese foreign policy official] Wang Yi that this would be a serious problem.” Not surprisingly, Wang Yi didn’t take kindly to Blinken’s statement, responding the next day, “We will not accept American finger-pushing in China-Russian relations.”
Vladimir Putin’s Moralistic Speech Marks Anniversary of Military Operation
Tuesday saw arch-villain Vladimir Putin making a speech to the federal assembly marking the one year anniversary of his “military operation” against Ukraine. In it, he emphasized the military power of Russia, saying that, since they cannot be defeated on the battlefield, the enemy is fighting a war of information. He then defended not only the righteousness of his actions, but the righteousness of the Russian nation. Taking the moral high ground, he spoke of the decadence of the West, saying, “It is all about the destruction of the family, of cultural and national identity, perversion and abuse of children, including pedophilia, all of which are declared normal in their life. They are forcing the priests to bless same-sex marriages…. But here is what I would like to tell them: look at the holy scripture and the main books of other world religions. They say it all, including that family is the union of a man and a woman, but these sacred texts are now being questioned. Reportedly, the Anglican Church is planning, just planning, to explore the idea of a gender-neutral god. What is there to say? Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” What we see in his words is an attempt to create common ground with Christians, Jews, and Muslims in order to garner their support. But we must not be fooled by holy-sounding rhetoric. Putin is a man who truly believes in his own righteousness. However, it is through his bloody actions that we see him for who he truly is.
US Holds Exercises with South Korea and Japan While North Korea Fires Missiles
The US held bilateral exercises with South Korea and with Japan on Sunday. Both Asian nations separately joined US fighters in escorting American B-1 bombers in a show of strength following North Korea’s firing of Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles (ICBM) into the Sea of Japan. If such exercises continue, North Korea threatens to implement an “unprecedented response”.
Deadly Marburg Virus Surfaces in Western Africa
Equatorial Guinea has seen an outbreak of the deadly Marburg virus, which kills 88% of its victims. The bat-borne, Ebola-related virus has already taken nine lives in the Central African country and another 16 cases are being investigated.
Abraham Accords in Action in Abu Dhabi
The Abraham Accords were on full display last week in Abu Dhabi, UAE. First, the Abrahamic Family House was inaugurated on Thursday. This interfaith center was built to celebrate the country’s history of religious diversity. Housing a synagogue, a mosque, and a church, all equally-sized white marble structures, the Abrahamic Family House can be applauded, not for its ecumenism which seeks to equate the value of all three faiths, but for the evidence it gives of the growing acceptance of Israel into the Arab world. The second sighting of the Abraham Accords was at the IDEX 2023 tri-service (army, navy, air force) defense exhibition, the largest of its kind. When it opened its doors on Monday, Israeli companies were allowed to participate for the very first time.

U.K.’s Tony Blair says West is counting on China to ‘hold back Russia’
Former U.K. Prime Minister Tony Blair and Lord William Hague sat for a 14–minute interview on Wednesday, February 22, with the BBC that provides insight into the level of Western arrogance and hubris regarding Russia. Blair has always been a conduit for the globalist Luciferian cabal, so when he speaks we should listen. Luciferians always tell us their plans ahead of time, and yet so few conservatives pay them any heed.
They start off the interview by parroting the usual Western propaganda line of the moment, which is their fixation on ridding the world of Putin, whom they see as the last obstacle to them ushering in their utopian one-world technocratic superstate.
This superstate will transcend national sovereignty and be based on global digital IDs for everyone and replacing cash with central bank digital currencies — these are the two things that will allow for 24/7 surveillance and assessment, think social credit scores, of all citizens living within the system.
This entire system — their utopia our dystopia — depends on Putin’s defeat.
“It only ends when it’s absolutely clear to Putin that his war ambitions can’t succeed,” Blair said.
Neither Blair nor Hague seemed particularly worried about Russia’s nuclear capabilities.
“There is no sign of an actual nuclear escalation,” Hague said in a remarkable distortion of the record. Dmitri Medvedev, the former Russian president and Putin ally, stated to the contrary just a few weeks ago:
“It doesn’t occur to any of the wretches to draw the following elementary conclusion: That the loss of a nuclear power in a conventional war could provoke a nuclear war. Nuclear powers have not lost major conflicts on which their fate depends. And this should be obvious to anyone.”
In case anyone is still confused, Medvedev followed up with another warning just today (Wednesday, February 22) on his Telegram channel, which said Russia will defend itself by any means and “with any weapon, including the nuclear kind.”
There are also reports this week that Russia is deploying nuclear-armed ships for the first time in 30 years.
But Blair and Hague, along with their pal Joe Biden, say the West must continue providing unlimited weapons to Ukraine until Putin comes to the conclusion that he won’t succeed. Ukraine is fighting valiantly and will defeat Putin, or so it goes in the minds of these Western globalists, blah, blah, blah, repeating all the stupid lies that are meant to condition the Western masses to believe that Putin can and will be defeated and forced to accept a humiliating peace on the West’s terms, which would involve him turning himself in to face trial for war crimes. This is all poppycock and they know it. I cannot believe that someone who’s been around as long as Tony Blair can be as stupid as he presents himself in this interview and the same goes for Lord Hague. They must know that Putin is not going to accept defeat in Ukraine and that there’s every possibility he will unleash his superior nuclear arsenal on the West before he entertains such a thought.
But Blair says in the interview that he puts his faith in China playing the role of peacemaker, “holding Russia back.” Yes, the lily white Chinese Communist Party will ride in on a white horse and save the West from nuclear annihilation at the hands of that dirty Russian despot. Give me a break.
Blair and Hague also suggest in this interview that the West will be saved by its superior technology, if only we will embrace it and submit to digital IDs allowing us all to be tracked and monitored 24/7. This is straight out of the World Economic Forum, U.N. Agenda 2030, World Health Organization playbook of demon-possessed policies designed to drive us into their long-planned new world order.
But I am beginning to think this new world order fantasy of the WEF globalists will never happen, at least not the way they envision it in Washington, New York or London. I know it’s hard to imagine living in a country that’s been on top of the world for so long, since the end of the last World War, but powerful nations and empires do reach their end and it seems as though we have the very types of leaders in place who could lead us to that end. They are feckless and deluded.
Blair actually thinks China will save us. He must not have seen the comment Tuesday from China’s top diplomat, Wang Yi, who said China is “ready to join forces with the Russian side.” Yi made a point of saying China’s cooperation with Russia would happen “in all areas,” toward the achievement of a restructured world order that China and Russia see as “more equitable.”
Here is an excerpt from an article by the Russian news agency Tass dated Tuesday, February 21, in which Yi’s statements were included:
The People’s Republic of China is ready to join forces with Russia to decisively stand up for national interests and promote mutually beneficial cooperation in all areas, Wang Yi, director of the Office of the Foreign Affairs Commission of the Communist Party of China’s Central Committee, said on Tuesday as he met with Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolay Patrushev.
“During a virtual meeting at the end of last year our leaders (Chinese President Xi Jinping and Russian President Vladimir Putin – TASS) came up with a plan for further development of bilateral relations. We are ready to join forces with the Russian side, in accordance with the high-level agreements, to decisively stand up for national interests and virtues, and promote mutually beneficial cooperation in all areas,” he said.
These are two countries whose interests are converging at the same time the interests of China and the U.S. seem to be diverging.
What we have is China-Russia-North Korea-Iran vying with the U.S.-U.K.-Israel-NATO for who gets to sit on top of the mountain and call the shots in the coming new digital world order.
If anyone, the esteemed Tony Blair included, thinks China’s decision to “join forces” with Russia excludes them from helping Russia take Ukraine, they are deluding themselves.
Russia will defeat Ukraine and probably end up annexing the entire country, instead of just carving out the eastern section populated by Russian speakers as they had originally planned.
The Western media, bought and paid for by globalist Western corporate interests, is not telling us what China and Russia are saying and how closely they are working together strategically. So 99 percent of Americans remain in total ignorance of the current trajectory toward World War III and nuclear Armageddon, not even aware that their government leaders are like wolves in sheep’s clothing leading them to a slaughter.
We aren’t being told what Putin said in his seminal February 21 speech, which was directed at the West as much as it was to his own people. Biden made a surprise visit to Ukraine and gave his own speech on February 21 in an attempt to distract and divert media attention away from Putin’s speech. It seems to have worked as I flipped on the radio this morning to listen to the headlines and did not hear one word about Putin’s speech, only Biden’s.
Putin said a lot about the resolve of the Russians to fight off Western encroachment on its culture, it’s economy and its security. The U.S. government in Washington has now blown up Russia’s natural gas pipeline, a source of cheap gas for Western Europe and revenue for Russia, while exporting poisonous LGBTQ+ propaganda that Putin described as “anti-family,” and it has dubbed Putin himself guilty of international war crimes.
That’s a triple threat to Russia’s economic, political and cultural existence that Putin said will not be tolerated. He will send every last Russian to the front and if that doesn’t work he will nuke us.
Here’s the most important nugget from Putin’s speech, the part every American, Canadian and European should read and let sink in.
I want to emphasize: The U.S. and NATO are saying outright that their goal is to inflict a strategic defeat on Russia. And, after this, they are going to tour our defense sites as if nothing is happening? (a reference to the nuclear arms limitation treaty that Putin suspended)
One thing that must be clear to everyone. The longer the range of the Western systems that arrive in Ukraine, the further we will be forced to push the threat away from our borders.
The Western elite make no secret of their goals, which is, I quote, ‘Russia’s strategic defeat.’ What does this mean to us? This means they plan to finish us once and for all. In other words, they plan to grow a local conflict into a global confrontation. This is how we understand it, and we will respond accordingly, because this represents an existential threat to our country.”
Whether or not you agree with Putin’s above declaration does not matter. This is how Putin’s government feels and it will act accordingly.
The next big step in the march toward full-on World War III will be Russia kicking U.S. Ambassador Lynne Tracy out of its country. That’s the signal that things have progressed to the point of no return in the march toward the most destructive war in world history.
In fact, Russian diplomats handed Tracy a note summoning her to a meeting in Moscow.
The International Business Times reports that Tracy will be given the following message:
The Biden administration will refuse all of these demands and at that point Tracy will likely be given the boot, closing off the last remaining channel of communication between the two superpowers.
So this was a monumental week. The positions of China, Russia and the U.S./U.K./NATO have all been revealed. None appear to be budging off of their demands.
Pray for peace. Prepare for war. Because barring a miraculous intervention it looks, at this point, like war is inevitable.
Witnessing In the Last Days – Bill Perkins - https://compass.org/witnessing-in-the-last-days/
I planted, Apollos watered, but God was causing the growth. 1Cor. 3:6
As we watch the many prophesied end-time events unfold, we can all agree that this is a most amazing time to be alive. God in His divine providence has placed us here at this very moment for His purposes. How exciting is that!
So what’s the main purpose for a Believer living in these last days? It’s the same purpose that’s been the most important since God created the world some 6000 years ago. Succinctly stated, it’s “salvation.”
As we’ve said countless times in the past, THE most important thing on this earth is who's going to heaven and who's going to hell!
We have to keep that perspective 24/7, even in the midst of trying circumstances as we live in these last days. Who knows what’s coming that the Globalists/Satanists will use to try to scare us. Another supposedly deadly disease? World War? Food shortages?
We have to keep in mind at all times that fear is from Satan, not God.
and might free those who through fear of death were subject to slavery all their lives. Heb. 2:15
Jesus is our immovable rock on whom we trust.
For You are my rock and my fortress; For Your name’s sake You will lead me and guide me. Psa. 31:3
As more and more people realize the Globalists/Satanists are literally trying to murder some 80% of the world’s population, we, by God’s grace and providential timing, have the answers to share.
And our two main goals are:
1) To live our life glorifying God.
2) To be used by God in the lives of those in our sphere of influence.
And for those non-Believers we come into contact with, it's seed-planting time! We should look for opportunities to explain that whether they live or die before the Rapture is really not that important …compared to what happens for eternity. Hey, eternity is a long time to unnecessarily burn in the flames of hell.
We have to be discerning to recognize when God opens a door for us to testify to His saving grace, and also when God is not opening a door.
We can’t talk anyone into heaven — God has to do it. Humans are just the conduit He uses to reach people. If God has not prepared a heart to receive Him, we’re just barking up a tree.
We also need to understand that witnessing is many times a long process. God may use you to share a scriptural truth with someone and they immediately respond to the call of God. But more often than not, you’re planting seeds to be watered in the future for salvation.
…as the Lord gave opportunity to each one. I planted, Apollos watered, but God was causing the growth. So then neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but God who causes the growth. 1Cor. 3:5b-8a
I know a true story that happened 20 years ago. Bob (not his name) wanted to witness to his neighbor Stan (not his name). Stan always seemed to be somewhat distant in the few opportunities Bob had to talk to him across the property line.
Then one spring, upon seeing Stan in the yard, Bob decided to be bold. He walked up and politely invited Stan and his wife to go to Easter service that week.
The response was described as almost demonic. The neighbor spewed so much vile cursing at God it would have made a Satanist blush. His dislike for Christians was so bad Bob began to retreat back to his yard saying innocently, “I’m sorry, I personally know I needed a Savior to pay for all my sins, but whatever.”
Still shaking, Bob went into his house and warned his wife about their neighbor’s response. Six months later, seven police cars abruptly pulled up to Stan’s house for a raid. They arrested Stan and his wife for growing and selling large amounts of marijuana with grow lights in their basement.
A few days later Stan had posted bail and was in his yard. Bob saw him and walked over, saying “Hi Stan.”
“You still speaking to me?” Stan replied.
"Yes, of course I am… how bad is it?"
Stan explained his charges, that he was guilty, but that he was most concerned about his wife who was also being charged. After a few minutes of discussion, Bob began walking back to his yard. As he walked he turned and said to Stan, “For what it’s worth, the invitation to join us for church is still there.”
Stan just stood there speechless. Bob walked back into his house not wanting to be cussed out again. Bob explained to his wife what Stan was charged with and that Stan seemed so broken that he invited them to church again.
Then to Bob’s amazement, there was Stan at his door. Before Bob could say a word, Stan began crying and telling Bob that he did in fact want to go to church with them.
In tears Stan told them that the first time Bob had asked him to go to church and Bob said he knew he needed a Savior, that he barely got into his house before breaking down in tears of conviction.
They cried together and hugged. The two couples began a Bible study together with both Stan and his wife trusting Jesus for their salvation. They met every week and six months later Stan was sentenced to a minimum of two years in prison. His wife received no incarceration.
It’s my understanding that Stan did his time, returned home and they are strong maturing Believers. The point of this story is you never know what God’s doing in someone’s life to whom you witness—you may be planting seeds for later salvation…all in God’s timing.
Witnessing today is the same as it was 100, 1000 or 6000 years ago. A person has to believe by faith that Jesus is Lord and Savior, that He died and rose again, defeating death.
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. Heb. 11:1
And the Lord has us here at this time to deliver that message as He opens doors of opportunities. Every day we see more and more people dying suddenly from heart attacks or strokes, or slowly from cancer or other deadly diseases.
The general population is now beginning to understand they’ve been duped about the purpose of those falsely called “va((ines.” That they are actually designed to kill millions of people.
But the silver lining is that this will bring more and more opportunities to share the good news of Jesus the Messiah. People don’t listen much to spiritual matters when all is well. Sometimes God has to kick the props right out from under them.
Despite what happens in the future, whatever big event is rolled out next by the Globalists/Satanists to make people fearful, we have answers. Answers that were recorded thousands of years ago.
for no prophecy was ever made by an act of human will, but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God. 2Pet. 1:21
We have answers for lost relatives, neighbors or coworkers who the Lord may save before or after the Rapture.
We can be bold today because we can't mess up trying to be used by God. And when we finally transition to the next life, whether before or at the Rapture, we win! Wait… we’ve already won!!
Whether we are planting seeds or watering seeds, use us, Lord!
Encourage the exhausted, and strengthen the feeble. Is. 35:3
Daily Jot: The Farm Chronicles: Convertibles - Bill Wilson – www.harvest.org
Somebody pulled up in the driveway. I didn’t go out and see who it was right away. Had some chores in the barn, probably cleaning stalls. I came out into the barnyard and through the glow of the afternoon sun, there was an image I never thought possible to be sitting in our driveway. I couldn’t believe my eyes. There she sat. In the driveway. A brand new red 1962 Ford Thunderbird convertible. Top down. White tuck and roll leather bucket seats with a classic rounded back seat. The dashboard looked like the cockpit on my Jimmy Jet and it had a sleek middle console. The car reminded me of something that would have come out of the space-aged cartoon The Jetsons. Couldn’t believe my dad bought it.
Well, he didn’t. After I looked that T-Bird over and ran my hands along its sleek outer lines, examined the “thruster-like” taillights, and the rounded aerodynamic grill, I meandered into the house imagining riding down the country roads with my hair blowing in the wind. There in the kitchen was Dad, Mom, and the car salesman sitting around the kitchen table. Pretty serious discussion. Back then, car dealers jacked prices up. It was up to the buyers whether they would pay full price or haggle for a better price. My Dad was a horse trader, so that car salesman, who drove that wonderful T-Bird all the way from Kent 20 miles away to make a sale, was in for some dealing. Dad told me to go outside and look at the car.
Having permission, I opened the driver’s side door and sat in the contoured bucket seat in front of the steering wheel. You can imagine all the adventures that were rolling through my mind on that mild, late summer afternoon, as I pretended to drive that sports car. I ended up in the back seat, trying it out for leg room. I was amazed at the tuck and roll craftmanship and how the backseat sort of curved on the edges. I fell in love with that car. About two hours later, the salesman came out. Dad said to come out of the car. The salesman said something like, “You are passing up a great deal.” Dad said something like $4,700 is my price. That car was going for about $5,500. So it was no deal. I was so disappointed.
Dad said they wanted too much for the car. Mom said there wasn’t enough room in it. A little later, though, they bought a 1962 Buick Invicta convertible, light metallic blue with matching interior. It didn’t have the bucket seats, bench seats in the front. Huge back seat. And the trunk was as big as a ballroom. Dad got his convertible. Mom got her room. And I believe they paid less than $4,000 at Gifford Buick in Kent, Ohio. It was unusual to see a farmer in bibbed overalls and a cowboy hat riding in a sporty car with the top down. But that was Dad, and Mom might be found in the back seat being chauffeured in her Jackie Kennedy sunglasses and scarf. Proverbs 22:6 says, “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” It’s true with cars as well. Convertibles stuck with me as I have had one for many years.
Daily Devotion: That Means Us - by Greg Laurie – www.harvest.org
Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land. —2 Chronicles 7:14
https://harvest.org/resources/devotion/that-means-us/ - Listen
When we look at the breakdown in our culture, we’re quick to point the finger at Hollywood or the politicians in Washington, DC. They may all play a role in it to some degree. But when God sees the breakdown of a nation, He doesn’t point His finger at the White House. He points it at His house.
In 2 Chronicles 7:14, God says, “Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land” (nlt).
Of course, we gravitate toward the last part of the verse that talks about restoring our land. But let’s notice that at the beginning of this verse, God says, “If my people . . .” That means you. That means me.
Yes, there are people doing evil, horrible things today. But what about us? Do we need to humble ourselves and seek His face and turn from our wicked ways?
According to Scripture, that is the prescription for revival.
During the Jesus Revolution, the Holy Spirit was at work. There was a sense of expectancy in the church services. No one was late for church. There was a sense of anticipation about what God was going to do. And this is the same Holy Spirit that set the first-century church in motion.
God’s Holy Spirit wants to work in our lives. The question is, do we want Him to work? The Bible says, “Do not quench the Spirit” (1 Thessalonians 5:19 NKJV).
Sometimes God’s Holy Spirit will nudge us to do a certain thing or go to a certain place, and we’ll say no. That is quenching the Spirit. Don’t do that. If we want another spiritual awakening, then we need the Holy Spirit at work in our lives, empowering us, filling us.

"Folks, it's all beginning to unravel. America is in more danger of falling than at any time in its history. But I believe Bible prophecy predicts this very decline. From this point on, we believers have to get serious. We are going to face discouragement, disillusionment and, most certainly, persecution in the time between now and the Rapture. But don't be discouraged or disillusioned. The coming turmoil will provide us unrivaled opportunities to share the good news of the Gospel. So be ready to share your faith and your hope with those who need Christ. We still have time to reap a great harvest of souls for God's kingdom!" - Hal Lindsey
