The Coming Prince - By Jack Kinsella - https://www.raptureready.com/2019/12/28/coming-prince-jack-kinsella/
Ever since Sir Robert Anderson published his seminal work, ‘The Coming Prince’ at the turn of the 20th century, prophecy watchers have been trying to figure out who he is. Sir Robert took his title from Daniel 9:26’s identification of the antichrist as a prince of the Roman Empire:
“And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.”
Of all the prophetic clues to the identification of the antichrist, this seems to me to be the most unassailable. There have been only two ‘peoples’ whom history records destroying both the city of Jerusalem and the sanctuary of the Temple.
The first was Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon, who sacked Jerusalem, destroyed the Temple, carried off its treasures and took the Judean intelligentsia captive to serve the Babylonian Empire. Daniel’s prophecy was recorded from Babylon, many years after the event.
The second time was in AD 70 when Titus of Rome, together with elements of the V Macedonia, XII Fulminata and XV Fretnensis, lay siege to Jerusalem and the Temple.
On the Jewish feast day of Tisha B’av (the Ninth of Av), the Romans fired and destroyed the Second Temple.
The Jewish historian, Flavius Josephus, was an eyewitness to the events that he described:
“Now as soon as the army had no more people to slay or to plunder, because there remained none to be the objects of their fury (for they would not have spared any, had there remained any other work to be done), [Titus] Caesar gave orders that they should now demolish the entire city and Temple…but for all the rest of the wall [surrounding Jerusalem], it was so thoroughly laid even with the ground by those that dug it up to the foundation, that there was left nothing to make those that came thither believe it [Jerusalem] had ever been inhabited.”
According to Josephus, as many as one million, one hundred thousand Jews were killed during the siege, with less than a hundred thousand surviving to be captured and enslaved.
“The slaughter within was even more dreadful than the spectacle from without. Men and women, old and young, insurgents and priests, those who fought and those who entreated mercy, were hewn down in indiscriminate carnage. The number of the slain exceeded that of the slayers. The legionaries had to clamber over heaps of dead to carry on the work of extermination.”
Most amazingly, Titus reportedly refused to accept a victory wreath from Ceasar, on the grounds that “there is no merit in vanquishing a people forsaken by their own God.”
Scripture paints a detailed portrait of the man Daniel said would be a prince of the people who would destroy the city (Jerusalem) and the sanctuary (the Temple).
Daniel 7:8, 24 says that the antichrist will rise from obscurity, but with a ‘mouth speaking great things.’ He will blaspheme God [Daniel 7:25; 11:36; Revelation 13:5] slandering His Name, dwelling place, and departed Christians and Old Testament saints [Revelation 13:6].
He will confirm a covenant between Israel and the “many” [Daniel 9:27]. This covenant will likely involve the establishment of a Jewish Temple in Jerusalem [see Dan 9:27; Matt 24:15].
He will put an end to Jewish sacrifice and offerings after 3 ½ years and will set up an abomination to God in the Temple [Daniel 9:27, Matthew 24:15]. His power will be as absolute as any ‘king’ of the ancient Babylonians, Persians, and Greeks [Revelation 13:2]. He will not answer to a higher earthly authority; “He will do as he pleases” [Daniel 11:36].
Daniel 11:37 says he will pay lip service to the religion of his ancestors, but will give honor to the ‘god’ of [military] forces. His whole focus and attention will be on his military. He will conquer lands and distribute them [Daniel 11:39-44].
He will claim that Jesus did not come in the flesh, or that Jesus did not rise bodily from the grave [2 John 7]. He will deny that Jesus is the Messiah [I John 2:22].
He will be worshipped by many people [Rev. 13:8]. He will hate a nation that initially will have some control over his kingdom, but he will destroy this nation [Rev 17:16-18]. In some fashion, his name will be related to the number six hundred and sixty-six— but not necessarily in an obvious fashion [Rev 13:17-18].
Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, he will be indwelt and empowered by Satan himself [Revelation 13:2].
I believe that he is alive today and is probably already a well-known politician. But I don’t believe that it is the responsibility of the Church to identify him or even to be on the lookout for him. The Scriptures tell us to be watching for the coming of Christ.
Signs pointing to the antichrist are important only in that the revelation of the antichrist means the return of Jesus Christ is only seven years away from that moment. The Tribulation Period lasts for 2,520 days, which works out to seven Hebrew calendar years.
Over the years, I’ve heard dozens of novel interpretations by folks who find a seven-year Tribulation Period inconvenient to their own theories, but the big hurdle to get over is that Daniel says the antichrist’s covenant is for one “week” (Hebrew: shabua).
(“Shabua” is used here in the same sense that the Greeks used “decade” to measure multiples of ten years, except the Hebrews worked in multiples of seven.)
The arguments are interesting and novel, and some of them show evidence of years of effort at making the numbers match the theory being offered, but you can’t make Daniel’s Seventieth Week into anything but a week of years without trashing the incredible accuracy of Daniel’s prediction regarding the Messiah.
Josh McDowell wrote his thesis at Dallas Theological Seminary on the Book of Daniel, and his thesis was subsequently published as a book entitled Evidence that Demands a Verdict.
McDowell calculated the date of Xerxes commandment to restore the Temple on March 5, 444 BC and counted forward 483 lunar years, which equals 173,855 days.
And exactly 173,855 days after Xerxes issued that commandment, Jesus Christ rode into Jerusalem on the foal of an ass, was received as King and was ‘cut off’ (killed) “but not for Himself.”
“Now Caiaphas was he, which gave counsel to the Jews, that it was expedient that one Man should die for the people” [John 18:14].
So to argue that Daniel’s Seventieth Week is anything but seven years trashes Daniel’s most spectacular prophetic fulfillment. If the first sixty-nine weeks weren’t multiples of seven, then McDowell’s calculations are meaningless.
And so is Daniel’s prophecy – so why bother to either cite or study it?
Furthermore, the Prophet Jeremiah identifies the Tribulation Period as the “time of Jacob’s trouble” which comports to Daniel’s vision of the seventy weeks being determined for Israel and not the Church.
Remember, it is to make ‘reconciliation for sin’ and to ‘bring in everlasting righteousness.’
For the Church during the Church Age, those goals were already accomplished at the Cross.
But the Tribulation Period is the final week of the Age of the Law. The Temple will be in full operation and the Mosaic Law in full force. The Church Age is concluded with the antichrist’s treaty.
We don’t know who the antichrist is — but we do know that the covenant the antichrist confirms is based on the formula of “land for peace,” the formula upon which the Oslo Agreement (September 13, 1993 –September 13, 2000) was based.
So the treaty exists, but collapsed before it was fully implemented. The principle of land for peace remains at the heart of every peace proposal. The antichrist is said to ‘confirm’ the covenant, not write it, or negotiate it or sign it. He ‘confirms’ it.
One cannot confirm anything unless it first exists!
If the symbols, heads, horns and beasts of Daniel and Revelation make sense, that is because this is the generation to whom they were addressed. Daniel didn’t understand all that he was seeing in his vision, and he asked for an explanation. Instead, the revealing angel told Daniel,
“But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased” [Daniel 12:4].
The Book is unsealed in this generation, a generation in which a person can circumnavigate the planet in a day. A generation that has unlocked the secrets of the human genome, one in which knowledge doubles every eighteen months.
Daniel’s treaty already exists. All that remains is for it to be confirmed and guaranteed by Sir Robert’s ‘Coming Prince.’
At some point before that treaty is finally confirmed, Jesus Christ will descend from heaven with a shout, and the voice of an archangel, and all those living who placed their faith in Christ will be snatched away, to be forever with Christ.
“Wherefore comfort one another with these words” [1 Thessalonians 4:18].
What's going to happen 30 seconds after the rapture? - By Nicole Alcindor - https://www.christianpost.com/news/what-is-going-to-happen-thirty-seconds-after-the-rapture.html
Jeff Kinley and Todd Hampson, hosts of the popular "Prophesy Pros Podcast," said the pre-tribulation rapture — an End Times event many Christians believe will happen that involves believers, both living and resurrected, being lifted up into the air to meet Jesus — will have a “cataclysmic impact on the planet.”
Kinley and Hampson stressed that despite some Bible teachers claiming that the event is not in Scripture, they maintain that it is — the translated world harpazo — and the global event will impact geopolitics, culture, religions and the psychological state of humanity.
“I think a lot of people have seen the rapture depicted in pop culture. Whether it’s the 'Left Behind' movies or other really poorly made movies, [the rapture] has become kind of a caricature of [those films]. Or the recent phenomenon where people who claim to be believers are literally saying the Bible doesn't teach a rapture,” Hampson said.
“It is a key aspect of the Lord's return. Just like the first coming had two parts to it, the birth and then the ministry and the death and resurrection. So, too, the Lord’s return has two parts and one of the ones that we wait for, Titus tells us, is ‘our blessed hope.’ It's the rapture. It's something we're supposed to be encouraged by.”
Hampson said John 14:1-3 are among the verses that highlight the coming rapture.
“[Jesus says]: ‘And if I go to prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me so that where I am, you will be.’ Another translation says, ‘I will receive you,’ Hampson added: So, it's kind of clear. He's not coming all the way down to Earth yet. He's receiving us somewhere in between Heaven and Earth. And that is a tenant of our faith. It’s something we look forward to.”
Kinley noted that before someone can study what happens directly after the rapture, they must understand that “the post-tribulation or rapture view that believes that Christians will all be raptured prior to the Second Coming of the Lord at the end of the tribulation period is not truthful.”
“We know believers are going to go into the millennial kingdom. [Unbelievers are] going to have babies. … And we know that in our glorified bodies, we can't do that. So, if all believers are glorified at the rapture, at the end of the tribulation, then who's having these babies in the millennial kingdom?” Kinley posited. “Certainly, unbelievers are not coming into the millennial kingdom. So, really the argument is between the pre-trib and the mid-trib. Will the church go through the wrath of God? And we just strongly believe that the Church will not go through the wrath of God.”
Describing how non-Christians might react to the rapture, Kinley said, for him, five words come to mind: “shock, confusion, panic, terror and chaos.”
“You're in a mall. You're at a football stadium. You're on an airplane. You're driving in a car. You're walking down the street, … school, wherever. And all of a sudden, scores of people just vanish from sight,” Kinley said, illustrating to listeners what that event might look like.
“Let's just say there are 100 million [Christians on Earth]. And those people instantly disappear from planet Earth. How is that going to impact the world?”
Kinley said that when the rapture occurs, he believes people will react by going on Twitter, TikTok, Instagram and news outlets to attempt to understand what has happened.
Hampson said he finds that it is “really interesting” to study and learn about some of the ways that unbelievers will try to make sense of the rapture when it happens. Perspectives outside of the biblical ones, he noted, are often riddled with “demonic deception.”
“In New Age teaching, for decades now, they have taught in various circles [and] in different forms … that there's coming a time when all the people who are holding back progress will be taken from mother Earth or the universe will take them,” Hampson explained. “[And that] the people that are taken are not taken to be with the Lord, but they're taken out of here so that the world can finally rise to the level that it's supposed to rise [and] that we're holding them back. And eventually, the universe is going to answer.”
Following the rapture, Hampson said, unbelievers are likely to experience “chaos, grief and panic.” And he said many people will try to use the aftermath of the rapture as an opportunity to capture the minds of other people through deceptive explanations outside of biblical truth about what has occurred.
“People are going to look for answers. … And I think there are evil people, globalists and other people who will not hesitate for a second and realize this is the moment they've all been waiting for. This is the crisis that's finally going to let them push everything over the edge,” Hampson predicted.
“But there are probably other excuses too. [Unbelievers might try to make sense of the rapture by saying] ‘there's probably wormholes and physics type stuff.’ … I can see people speculating, ‘Oh, they were taken up in a wormhole and all these people got sucked out.’ So there's going to be all kinds of wild explanations and initially, people will gravitate to it.”
Aside from unbelievers speculating and coming up with false assertions to try to understand why the rapture occurred, Hampson predicts there will be people who have heard the Gospel before the rapture and they will know that the rapture is a biblical event only after it has occurred.
“There will be some people who are close enough to Christian teaching who will realize right off the bat, ‘Oh my gosh, this is the rapture that my sister was talking about, or my grandmother was telling me about or that I used to make fun of,” he said.
For Christians, Hampson said, it's important to evangelize and not to boast about the rapture to unbelievers. It is a Christian's duty, he said, to inform unbelievers about the coming rapture, but in a loving way that would bring them to repentance and believe in the Lord.
“As we talk about this and the chaos that's going to be in the world afterward, we don't do that gleefully. … God [has] given the church 2,000 years already to realize this is the truth. … And that's our whole mission as the Church is to evangelize to the world,” Hampson advised.
“So, it's our job as believers now to keep telling people that because we don't want anybody to experience it. Unfortunately, we know that most of the world will go through it.”

All Of A Sudden, Huge Earthquakes Are Hitting The West Coast Of The U.S. And Other High Risk Areas - by Michael Snyder - http://endoftheamericandream.com/all-of-a-sudden-huge-earthquakes-are-hitting-the-west-coast-of-the-u-s-and-other-high-risk-areas/
Have you noticed that there have been a lot of very unusual earthquakes around the globe this week? Suddenly, large earthquakes have started to erupt in some of the most high risk areas of the planet. Unfortunately, that includes the west coast of the United States. For years, I have been warning my readers about what will happen when “the Big One” finally hits the west coast. Could it be possible that the quakes that we are witnessing right now indicate that the fault zones along the west coast are starting to wake up again? Let us hope not, because this would be a really, really bad time for a historic seismic event.
At the beginning of this month, a magnitude 6.0 earthquake shook a large area near the California coastline, and that quake took a lot of the experts by surprise.
Many of them assured us that things would settle back down, but now an even larger quake has struck.
On Tuesday morning, a magnitude 6.2 earthquake hit right off the coast of Baja…
A magnitude 6.2 earthquake struck near the coast of Mexico’s Baja California on Tuesday morning, with impacts felt over 150 miles away in Southern California.
The United States Geological Survey says the quake occurred in the Pacific Ocean, about 125 miles south of the U.S. border.
So should we be concerned?
I don’t know, but this week there have been a couple of other large quakes that have gotten a lot of people talking.
On Monday, a magnitude 5.2 earthquake struck just off the coast of Oregon, and a magnitude 5.5 earthquake struck just off the coast of Alaska.
It is unusual to see so many large quakes happen along the west coast in such a short period of time.
Hopefully all of this activity is not building up to something larger.
Interestingly, we also just witnessed the biggest earthquake that we have seen in Texas in decades, but many are blaming that particular quake on fracking…
According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the earthquake occurred on November 16, just west of Pecos, Texas. This was the state’s largest earthquake since 1995 and was felt as far as El Paso. The oil and gas regulatory agency is trying to understand if this was a naturally occurring earthquake or if it was caused by waste water from fracking. Waste water disposal from fracking has dramatically increased the number of earthquakes in Texas. The seismic activity has especially become more common around the Permian Basin in West Texas, where oil and gas production is concentrated, according to the Texas Tribune.
It is not every day that a magnitude 5.4 earthquake happens in Texas, but it is probably not anything to be alarmed about.
I wish the same could be said for the quakes along the west coast.
Scientists assure us that “the Big One” is way overdue, and when it finally arrives it will cause a tremendous amount of devastation.
Elsewhere, other high risk areas around the globe are being greatly shaken as well.
For example, a magnitude 5.6 earthquake killed scores of people on Indonesia’s main island on Monday…
Hundreds of people have been killed and injured, and scores more displaced, after a magnitude 5.6 earthquake hit Indonesia’s main island on Monday.
At least 162 were killed and 700 hurt after a shallow tremor hit West Java near the town of Cianjur, around 45 miles south of the capital Jakarta, at 1.21pm local time.
The quake triggered a landslide and collapsed buildings in hard-hit Cianjur – where most of the deaths were reported – but also shook tower blocks in Jakarta for three terrifying minutes as people rushed on to the streets.
CNN is reporting that the death toll is now up to 268, but that number will inevitably go higher as rescuers pull even more bodies out of the rubble…
Rescuers were digging through debris on Tuesday to find survivors of a powerful earthquake that toppled homes and buildings in a highly populated area of Indonesia’s West Java province, killing at least 268 people.
A further 151 people remain missing and more than 1,000 were injured, the country’s National Agency for Disaster Management (BNPB) said.
The 5.6-magnitude quake hit the Cianjur region in West Java about 1:21 p.m. local time on Monday at a depth of 10 kilometers (6.2 miles), according to the United States Geological Survey (USGS), causing buildings to collapse while school classes were underway.
On Tuesday, the Solomon Islands were hit by a magnitude 7.0 earthquake, and that was quickly followed by a magnitude 6.0 earthquake…
The first quake hit offshore at a depth of 15 km (9 miles), about 16 km southwest of the area of Malango, said the United States Geological Survey which initially put its magnitude at 7.3 before revising it down to magnitude 7.0.
A second quake, with a magnitude of 6.0, struck nearby 30 minutes later.
The big quakes are happening so rapidly now that it really is difficult to keep up with them all.
Just a little while ago, there was a magnitude 6.1 earthquake in Turkey.
And by the time that you read this article, more unusual quakes may have happened.
Our planet has become an extremely unstable place, and many are concerned that much more instability is in our future.
Meanwhile, large herds of animals are suddenly endlessly walking in circles all over the globe.
Why would so many herds of animals exhibit such unusual behavior all at the same time?
Can they sense that something big is coming?
I don’t know, but I certainly think that we should all be monitoring events very carefully.
We live in such crazy times, and I have a feeling that they will soon get a whole lot crazier.
The First Thanksgiving - by Chuck Missler - https://www.khouse.org/articles/1997/111/
The early settlers of America, who braved the privations of those incredibly difficult years, were a fabulous lot, indeed. We can hardly imagine the burdens they endured to make a new life for themselves in a new land. Their turning point began one Friday in the middle of March,1621.
An Indian, wearing nothing but a leather loincloth, strode up their main street to the common house, and to their startled faces boomed in flawless English, "Welcome."
His name was Samoset, a sagamore (or chief) of the Algonquins. He had been visiting the area for the previous eight months, having learned his English from various fishing captains who had put in to the Maine shore over the years.
He returned the following Thursday with another Indian who also spoke English, and who was to prove "a special instrument of God for their good, beyond their expectation." His story was to prove no less extraordinary than the saga of Joseph being sold into slavery to Egypt. His name was Tisquantum, also called Squanto.
His story began in 1605 when Squanto and four other Indians were taken captive, sent to England,and taught English to provide intelligence background on the most favorable places to establish colonies. After nine years in England, Squanto was able to return to Plymouth on Capt. John Smith's voyage in 1614.
Lured and captured by a notorious Capt. Thomas Hunt, he, with 27 others, were taken to Mlaga, Spain, a major slave-trading port. Squanto, with a few others, were bought and rescued by local friars and introduced to the Christian faith. Thus, it appears that God was preparing him for the role he would ultimately play at Plymouth.
He was able to attach himself to an Englishman bound for London, then he joined the family of a wealthy merchant, and ultimately embarked for New England in 1619. He stepped ashore six months before the Pilgrims landed in 1620.1
When he stepped ashore he received the most tragic blow of his life. Not a man, woman, or child of his own tribe was left alive! During the previous four years, a mysterious plague had broken out among them, killing every last one.2 So complete was the devastation that the neighboring tribes had shunned the area ever since. The Pilgrims had settled in a cleared area that belonged to no one. Their nearest neighbors, the Wampanoags, were about 50 miles to the southwest.
Stripped of his identity and his reason for living, Squanto wandered aimlessly until he joined the Wampanoags, having nowhere else to go. But God had other plans.
Massasoit, the sachem (or chief) of the Wapanoags, entered into a peace treaty of mutual aid with the Plymouth colony that was to last as a model for forty years. When Massasoit and his entourage left, Squanto stayed. He had found his reason for living: these English were helpless in the ways of the wilderness. Squanto taught them how to catch eels, stalk deer, plant pumpkins, refine maple syrup, discern both edible herbs and those good for medicine, etc.
Perhaps the most important thing he taught them was the Indian way to plant corn. They hoed six-foot squares in toward the center, putting down four or five kernels, and then fertilizing the corn with fish: three fish in each square, pointing to the center, spokelike. Guarding the field against the wolves (who would try to steal the fish), by summer they had 20 full acres of corn that would save every one of their lives.
Squanto also taught them to exploit the pelts of the beaver, which was in plentiful supply and in great demand throughout Europe. He even guided the trading to insure they got full prices for top-quality pelts. The corn was their physical deliverance; the beaver pelts would be their economic deliverance.
The First Thanksgiving
The Pilgrims were a grateful people-grateful to God, grateful to the Wamp-anoags, and grateful also to Squanto. Governor Bradford declared a day of public Thanksgiving, to be held in October.
Massasoit was invited and unexpectedly arrived a day early-with an additional ninety Indians! To feed such a crowd would cut deeply into their stores for the winter, but they had learned through all their travails that God could be trusted implicitly.
And it turned out that the Indians did not come empty handed: they brought five dressed deer and more than a dozen fat wild turkeys. They helped with the preparations, teaching the Pilgrim women how to make hoecakes and a tasty pudding out of cornmeal and maple syrup. In fact, they also showed them how to make one of their Indian favorites: white, fluffy popcorn! (Each time you go to a movie theatre, you should remember the source of this popular treat!)
The Pilgrims, in turn, provided many vegetables from their gardens: carrots, onions, turnips, parsnips, cucumbers, radishes, beets, and cabbages. Also, using some of their precious flour with some of the summer fruits which the Indians had dried, the Pilgrims introduced them to blueberry, apple, and cherry pie. Along with sweet wine made from wild grapes, it was, indeed, a joyous occasion for all concerned.
The Pilgrims and Indians happily competed in shooting contests, foot races, and wrestling. Things went so well (and Massasoit showed no inclination to leave) that this first Thanksgiving was extended for three days.
The moment that stood out the most in the Pilgrims' memories was William Brewster's prayer as they began the festival. They had so much for which to thank God: for providing all their needs-and His provision of Squanto, their teacher, guide, and friend that was to see them through those critical early winters.
A National Institution
By the end of the 19th century, Thanksgiving Day had become an institution throughout New England. It was officially proclaimed as a national holiday by President Abraham Lincoln in 1863. Traditionally celebrated on the last Thursday in November, it was changed by an act of Congress in 1941 to the fourth Thursday of that month.3
Originally observed to acknowledge the provision of God, let us also make this national holiday a very special time to thank Him for our own provision-our families, our sustenance, and, above all, our redemption in His Son!
Let's also pray that He might restore the religious freedom that those early Pilgrims cherished so dearly-and that the current enforced paganism that has invaded our land be curtailed. This country is now becoming what the Pilgrims had risked their very lives to flee from.
Much of this article was excerpted from The Light and the Glory, Peter Marshall and David Manuel, Fleming H. Revell Co., Old Tappan, NJ, 1977. For a thrilling and inspiring account of the incredible measures God provided for in the founding of our once-great country, this book is a "must read."
1. The Pilgrims lived that first winter aboard ship and suffered the loss of 47 colonists.
2. This epidemic, from 1615 to 1617, is believed to have killed 95,000 Indians, leaving only about 5,000 along the coast.
3. Canada first adopted Thanksgiving as a national holiday in November 1879, and it is now celebrated there annually on the second Monday in October.
Daily Jot: Stupidocrisy: Biden targets senior citizens - Bill Wilson – www.dailyjot.com
Despite widespread scientific studies about the dangers of the COVID vaccinations and the very fact that the shots, especially boosters, are ineffective, the Biden Administration Tuesday announced a campaign urging Americans to get updated on their COVID vaccine. The target: Senior Citizens. The White House said in a briefing fact sheet, “The six-week campaign will focus on reaching seniors and the communities that were hardest hit by COVID-19 by making it even more convenient to get vaccinated and increasing awareness through paid media.” In addition, the Biden Administration is going to spend nearly half-a-billion dollars ($475 million) to coerce nursing homes to push the COVID vax or be investigated.
The White House said The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will issue new guidelines that will “make clear that nursing homes with low vaccination rates will be referred to state survey agencies for close scrutiny, and that facilities that do not comply with the requirement to offer and educate on the benefit of lifesaving COVID-19 vaccinations will face enforcement actions, including the need to submit corrective action plans to achieve compliance. HHS will also ask governors for their assistance and partnership in increasing COVID vaccination rates for long-term care residents and highlight for them how their states are performing against their peers. And, CMS will provide data to states and health plans about the poorest performing nursing homes to help them encourage action and promote increased vaccination uptake.”
This jackboot tactic flies in the face of science and targets seniors who are vulnerable to the deadly and debilitating side effects of the COVID vaccine. Herewith: A study published in the New England Journal of Medicine titled, “Effects of Previous Infection and Vaccination on Symptomatic Omicron Infections,” found “No discernable differences in protection against symptomatic BA.1 and BA.2 [Omicron] infection were seen with previous infection, vaccination, and hybrid immunity.” A Forbes analysis of countries with the highest vaccination rates indicated that per-capita COVID outbreaks are higher than the less vaccinated countries, causing experts to question the efficacy of vaccines. A UK study indicates that initial vaccine effectiveness of 45-75% rapidly declines after several weeks to 10% or less.
Moreover, the UK study confirmed that “9 out of every 10 deaths related to COVID-19 are found in those who are fully vaccinated.” A paper by MIT’s Stephanie Seneff, published in the International Journal of Vaccine Theory, Practice and Research, postulates that the “unintended consequences” of the mRNA vaccines against COVID 19 are worse than the disease, including catastrophic adverse events such as the destruction of the immune system. In a May 19 Epoch Times article, Beth Giuffre and Dr Yuhong Dong conclude: “Prominent immunologists, vaccinologists, and researchers from every clinical expertise are now providing evidence to support COVID-19 mRNA injectable products are causing immune system dysregulation.” These are just a handful of the examples of how the COVID shots are both ineffective and unsafe.
Yet the Biden Administration is spending half-a-billion taxpayer dollars to see that all Americans, especially seniors, are getting their booster of a shot that doesn’t work any longer than four months and has horrific side effects. AND if nursing homes don’t comply in coercing this shot on seniors, they will be investigated and face “enforcement actions.” This is a continuation of the fear mongering the government is conducting against its citizens. 2 Timothy 1:7 says, “For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” Do not fear and do not allow government goons to prey on your loved ones who may not have the soundness of mind to resist. This is worse than…say it with me…Stupidocrisy.
Daily Devotion: Give Thanks Anyway - by Greg Laurie – www.harvest.org
And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him. —Colossians 3:17
During the Thanksgiving season, it’s easy to lose our perspective and forget that we have so much to be thankful for.
Maybe you’re having a hard time right now. Maybe you’re having health, financial, or family problems. I don’t want to suggest, in any way, that these things aren’t difficult, because they are. Yet we still should give thanks.
That’s the reason that we were created. God put us on this earth to glorify Him and give thanks to His name. The Scriptures urge us again and again to do this. In Psalm 106:1, we read, “Praise the Lord! Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever” (NKJV).
Colossians 3:17 says, “And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him” (NKJV).
Hebrews 13:15 tells us, “Therefore by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name” (NKJV).
Yes, praise and worship can be a sacrifice because we don’t necessarily want to do it. When we are discouraged or depressed, when things aren’t going that well or tragedy befalls us, we don’t feel like praising God.
But the Bible doesn’t say that we should praise the Lord only when we feel good. Rather, it says that we should always praise the Lord because He is good.
After Jesus healed ten men with leprosy, one of them, a Samaritan, returned to give thanks. Jesus asked, “Were there not ten cleansed? But where are the nine? Were there not any found who returned to give glory to God except this foreigner?” (Luke 17:17–18 NKJV).
Just like the Samaritan, we should be as definite about giving thanks as we are about asking for help. Have you given thanks to God for all He has done for you?

One of the most reliable ways to determine if a ministry is worthy of your financial support is to examine its fruits. If Prophecy Update is keeping you informed, and if that information inspires you, and causes you to draw closer to the Lord, if Prophecy Update equips you with valuable information and knowledge to share with and encourage other believers, and open the eyes of non-believers, and if Prophecy Update keeps you connected to current events relating to Bible Prophecy, then you are partaking of the fruit produced through this ministry. None of this would be possible without the Lords blessings and your support. I believe where the Lord guides, the Lord provides, and most of the time He provides through the willing and generous hearts of believers just like you and me.
Humbly Seek Your Support

"Share in the Blessings and Rewards that will last Forever!"
"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

Our Prayer for You- "Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness. You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God. This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of God's people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God. Because of the service by which you have proved yourselves, men will praise God for the obedience that accompanies your confession of the gospel of Christ, and for your generosity in sharing with them and with everyone else." 2 Corinthians 9:10-13
