The Perfect Numbers in the Day of the Lord – Randy Nettles - https://www.rev310.net/post/the-perfect-numbers-in-the-day-of-the-lord-1
The last seven years of Daniel’s prophecy of Seventy Weeks/Sevens (490 years) is mentioned in Daniel 9:27 and Daniel 12. It is also discussed in more detail in Revelation 4-19. These last seven years of the end times before Jesus returns at His 2nd Advent is also known as Jacob’s Trouble or the Tribulation.
The Tribulation’s duration, from the confirming of the covenant between the Antichrist and the many (Israel and others) to the beginning of Jesus’ millennium kingdom, will be for exactly 2520 days. The solar/Gregorian calendar of 365.2425 days is not used to calculate these last 7 years (and the other 483 years of Daniel’s prophecy) but rather the prophetic/biblical calendar (Noah’s calendar) of 360 days per year.
Whether you break down the Tribulation into two equal halves of 1260 days each or into two parts of 1230 and 1290 days (as described in In the Midst:: by Randy Nettles – Rapture Ready), most eschatologists agree the total duration is for 2520 days.
2520 is a special number in several ways. It is the smallest number divisible by all integers from 1 to 10, i.e., it is their least common multiple. It is a colossally abundant number with many factors or divisors, including: 12, 14, 15, 18, 20, 21, 24, 28, 30, 35, 36, 40, 42, 45, 56, 60, 63, 70, 72, 84, 90, 105, 120, 126, 140, 168, 180, 210, 252, 280, 315, 360, 420, 504, 630, 840, 1260, and 2520. It is half of 7! (5040), meaning 7 factorial, or 1 X 2 X 3 X 4 X 5 X 6 X 7.
2520 is also a number of the proportion of creation, especially the heavens. Here are a few examples:
King David realized and appreciated God’s creation when he wrote, “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork. Day unto day utters speech, and night unto night reveals knowledge. There is no speech nor language where their voice is not heard. Their line has gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them He has set a tabernacle for the sun, which is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoices like a strong man to run its race. Its rising is from one end of heaven, and its circuit to the other end; and there is nothing hidden from its heat” (Psalm 19:1-6).
Last but not least is the fact that 2520 is the product of the four great numbers of completion or perfection (God’s “perfect” numbers), 3 X 7 X 10 X 12 = 2520.
There is also an amazing correlation between the numbers 430 and 2520 regarding Jewish history and their servitude/tribulation by enemy kingdoms. The first 430 years began when God made a covenant with Abram (Abraham) regarding the ownership of the land of Canaan (by Abraham and his seed) in 1876 BC. The affliction of Abraham’s seed (Isaac and descendants) began in 1846 BC, 30 years after Abram’s original covenant, when Ishmael was 19 years old. The event that started this tribulation was when Ismael jealously mocked Isaac on the celebratory day he was weaned, as described in Genesis 21:8-20.
The affliction of Isaac continued in the land of Canaan until his death in 1671 BC. That same year, Isaac’s grandson, Joseph, was standing in front of the Pharaoh of Egypt, interpreting his dream. Isaac’s son, Jacob, and his family relocated to Egypt in 1661 BC. The children of Israel stayed in Egypt for 215 years until the Exodus in 1446 BC, which would be the end of the 430-year timeline. This timeline confirms the prophecy of 400 years (1846 BC – 1446 BC) mentioned in Genesis 15:13 and the 430 years (1876- 1446 BC) mentioned in Exodus 12:40-41. Paul reaffirms the 430 years in Galatians 3:17-18.
The next prophetic 430-year period is mentioned in Ezekiel 4:3-6 when God gave Ezekiel a prophecy concerning the judgment and punishment for Israel in lieu of her wickedness. Each day that Ezekiel was to lay on his side represented one biblical year (of 360 days) for Israel and Judah’s punishment. The start of this prophecy begins in 586-585 BC with the destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple by the Babylonians.
God deducted 70 years of captivity in Babylon, as prophesied by Jeremiah, so now there remained a total of 360 years of further punishment beyond 536 BC, which marked the end of the Babylonian captivity. It should be noted that, historically, Israel did not repent of its sin at the end of the 70 years. For this sin, God’s divine principle for disobedience found in Leviticus 26 took effect. “And if you will not yet for all this hearken unto me, then I will punish you seven times more for your sins.” So now, instead of 360 years of further punishment, Israel would undergo 2520 biblical years of punishment. Then and only then would final restoration to the land be accomplished.
The starting date for the 2520 biblical years is 536 BC. 2520 biblical (prophetic) years X 360 = 907,200 days. Converting this figure into our Gregorian calendar of 365.2425 days and dividing 365.2425 into 907,200 days, we reach a total of 2483.8 calendar years. If you add 2483.8 years to 536 BC, you come to the year AD 1948. On May 14, 1948, the Declaration of the Establishment of the State of Israel was proclaimed to the world, and the Jewish kingdom/nation was reborn, fulfilling the prophecies of Ezekiel 4:3-6, Leviticus 26, and Ezekiel 37:1-14.
It appears the numbers 7, 360, and 2520 are not only prevalent in creation but also when it comes to God’s chosen (and not forgotten) people – the children of Israel. There is little doubt that the Tribulation mainly revolves around Israel and its restoration and conversion, even when it comes to the duration of “Jacob’s Trouble,” 2520 days.
These numbers make me, as a Bible numbers guy, wonder where God’s perfect numbers fit into God’s timeline for the end times known as the Day of the Lord. For those of you who aren’t familiar with these numbers, please refer to God’s Perfect Number: Part 1:: By Randy Nettles:: Rapture Ready. In this article/s we examine the biblical significance of four special numbers, 3, 7, 10, and 12 that God uses repeatedly in a manner that quite often connotes perfection and/or completion. The number 3 signifies divine perfection, 7 is the number for spiritual perfection, 10 is the number for ordinal perfection, and 12 is the number for government perfection.
The number 7 has already been mentioned frequently throughout this article in relation to the numbers 360 and 2520 and the duration of the Tribulation, which is 7 biblical years. These last 7 years of human history before Jesus returns to the earth to establish His Millennial Kingdom is the long-delayed 70th week of Daniel’s prophecy (Daniel 9:24-27) given to him by the angel Gabriel.
This prophecy gives the duration for 6 (the number for man) objectives for Israel and Jerusalem before Jesus will return as their Messiah: 1) To finish the transgression. 2) To make an end of sins. 3) To make reconciliation for iniquity. 4) To bring in everlasting righteousness. 5) To seal up vision and prophecy 6) To anoint the Most Holy. Once these deeds are accomplished, Jesus will begin His 1000-year reign as King of kings and Lord of lords.
The Day of the Lord begins with the Rapture of the Church as mentioned in But of that Day and Hour :: By Randy Nettles – Rapture Ready. No one knows the day and hour of the Rapture, and no one ever will until it happens. Jesus said even the angels of heaven didn’t know, and only God the Father knew the date and time, according to Matthew 24:36. When the Rapture happens (in the twinkling of an eye), I believe it will come as a surprise to every living human being on the planet, unbelievers as well as believers. Everybody will be going about their daily earthly routine with no thought of heavenly matters, such as the Rapture.
In my estimation, there will be a gap of time that transpires between the start of the Day of the Lord (Rapture) and the start of the Tribulation (confirming of the covenant by the Antichrist and Israel/many). Perhaps that is where the perfect numbers of 3, 7, 10, and 12 come into play. I think (hypothetically) that the Rapture might occur either 3 or 5 (number of grace) years before the start of the 7-year Tribulation. That would place the timing of the Rapture at either 10 or 12 years before Jesus’ 2nd Coming.
Many astute Bible teachers believe the prophecy of Ezekiel 38 (war of Gog/Magog) and the prophecy of Isaiah 17 (destruction of Damascus) will be fulfilled either slightly before or after the Rapture, which would also place the timing at 10 or 12 years before the 2nd Advent. Of course, this is only an educated hypothesis (definition: a supposition or proposed explanation made on the basis of limited evidence as a starting point for further investigation) concerning the timing of the Day of the Lord.
We do know a few certain facts concerning the Tribulation. It will last for 7 years, and it is getting close. We know it is getting close, as apostasy and lawlessness are abounding in all areas of society, including government institutions and municipalities (local, state, and national), politics, media, social media, religion, sports, entertainment, financial institutions, schools and universities, business and corporations, and the family unit. Crime is rampant and getting worse. Socialism and Communism are rearing their ugly heads as the New World Order is beginning to take form.
Lies and fake news are the main sources of information we get from politicians, media, and health organizations. Satan must be proud, as he is called the father of lies. “You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it” (John 8:44). Even nature and the animal kingdom seem to be rebelling as the end draws near.
I have given several theoretical examples of possible future timelines for the Tribulation and Jesus’ 2nd Coming in my article series In The Midst- Parts I – V. Based on limited evidence, I believe Part IV: Return of the King has the most merit, with 2026 as the start and 2033 as the finish.
Hypothetically, in the year 2033, Jesus will return physically to the earth after a 2,000-year absence since he was crucified in the year AD 33. 2,000 years is as two days for the Lord according to the apostle Peter. “But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day with the Lord is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day” (2 Peter 3:8).
The Old Testament prophet Hosea had this to say about the subject, in my opinion: “After two days [2,000 years] He will revive us: in the third day [beginning of the 1,000-year reign of Jesus] He will raise us up, and we shall live in His sight. Then we shall know, if we follow on to know the LORD: His going forth is prepared as the morning; and He shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter [spring rain – 1st Advent] and former rain [fall rain – 2nd Advent] unto the earth” (Hosea 6:2-3).

According to my recent article/s Chronology of Mankind – 6000 Years of History, we are currently (AD 2021) 19 years away from the 6,000-year anniversary of mankind. Many Bible scholars are of the belief that there will be 6,000 years of recorded history for mankind before Jesus returns and establishes His millennial kingdom on planet Earth. They believe that just as the original creation week took 6 days of work and 1 day of rest (for a total of 7 days), so mankind will work on the earth for 6,000 years and will then rest for 1,000 years during the millennial reign of Jesus Christ. After 7,000 years, God will create a new heaven and earth for the faithful angels and redeemed man.
By my reckoning, in 2033, we will be 7 years shy of the benchmark 6,000 years of human history. However, we could be closer than that due to insufficient data regarding the exact age of the antediluvian and post-flood patriarchs at the time of their son’s birth, as recorded in the Bible…years are given but not years + months.
As mentioned before, the only one who knows for certain the exact timing of these end-time events is God (Father, Son, Holy Spirit), and He is silent on the subject. For those left behind after the Rapture, the start of the Tribulation will be known once the Antichrist confirms a 7-year (2520 days) covenant with Israel. His name in Greek or Hebrew gematria will have a numerical value that adds up to 666. The A.C. will break the covenant “in the midst” of the 7 years, and that is when all hell breaks loose on planet Earth and his true intentions will become known. His absolute reign over the entire earth will be short-lived, however, as it will only last for 3.5 biblical years or 1260 days. This is about the same duration as Jesus’ earthly ministry.
“And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming” (2 Thessalonians 2:8). “And the Lord shall be king over all the earth: in that day there shall be one LORD and his name one” (Zechariah 14:9).
Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
If Israel strikes Iran, Hezbollah’s Nasrallah will obey Iranian orders – Yaakov Lappin - https://www.jns.org/if-israel-strikes-iran-hezbollahs-nasrallah-will-obey-iranian-orders/
While Israel has refrained from publicly setting clear red lines to act as precise markers for a threshold that, if surpassed by Iran’s nuclear program, would trigger an Israeli attack, it is clear that Jerusalem has been sending warning signals about Iran’s approach towards the danger zone.
These warnings appear, in part, to be growing louder in the vacuum left behind of a lack of a credible American military threat in the event of an Iranian decision to break out to a nuclear weapon, and Washington’s priority of pivoting towards superpower competition with China and Russia.
As Israel’s warning grows louder, and Iran’s nuclear program continues to make progress — particularly in the area of uranium enrichment, and the centrifuges that enable it — it is natural to wonder about the multiple scenarios that a theoretical Israeli future strike could lead to.
History has demonstrated that the course of wars is not deterministic, and the question of what would follow an Israeli strike on Iranian nuclear sites is no different.
However, some contingencies appear to be more likely than others. The Israel Defense Forces, in its stepped-up planning for contingencies, must build up its readiness for them all, and particularly for the most severe one.
The key question is whether Hezbollah’s Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah will launch a full-scale assault on Israel from Lebanon if he receives the order from Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei to do so.
In light of the fact that Hezbollah poses the number one conventional military threat to Israel today, and that any multi-front conflict would be dominated by the Lebanese arena due to Hezbollah’s enormous arsenal of projectiles, this question is a top priority issue for the Israeli defense establishment’s planners.
It is impossible to imagine a scenario in which Nasrallah would reject an Iranian directive to act in retaliation. The next question centers around the scope of that retaliation. Should Iran instruct Hezbollah to enter into a full-scale conflict with Israel, it would be difficult to imagine Nasrallah turning this down as well.
A highly religious man, Nasrallah should be expected to follow through on the orders of the Iranian “mothership,” which is not only the source of Hezbollah’s radical Shi’ite Islamist ideology, but also its funding and force build-up.
After all, it was Iran that sent Hezbollah into the bloody battlefields of Syria for years. Any hopes that Nasrallah would limit Hezbollah’s response to an Israeli attack on Iran should therefore not guide Israeli policy, planning or resource allocation.
It is difficult to gage how seriously Khamenei is taking current Israeli threats about the consequence of further nuclear progress — but as Israel continues to enhance its long-range military capabilities, and its readiness for full-scale conflict with Iran and all of its proxies simultaneously, Jerusalem’s posture in Iranian eyes will be more difficult to dismiss.
The IDF has received billions of shekels to improve its Iran strike capabilities, and the Israeli Air Force has placed this capability at the top of its entire agenda for the year 2022.
What the IAF is also doing is planning how it will be able to engage Iran and its proxies across Lebanon, Syria, western Iraq and elsewhere. The IDF’s ground forces, meanwhile, are focusing their war training on the Lebanese arena, which would suffer unprecedented levels of Israeli firepower in the event of general conflict, taking Lebanon decades back in time.
Despite the high-pressure messaging, the decision junction is not yet imminent. Although Iran has made great progress on amassing fissile material, it is still more than a year away from completing other aspects needed for nuclear weapons, such as having a proven nuclear explosive mechanism, and being able to place it on a missile warhead.
Still, the fissile material stockpiling is the most challenging aspect of building the bomb, and Iran’s progress, in addition to its build-up of technological knowledge, is alarming.
Since the Iranian nuclear program is the only threat that could prove existential if left unchecked, it is the number one priority for the Israeli defense establishment, overtaking the threat posed by Iran’s regional entrenchment program, which is the target of an extensive Israeli grey zone “lawnmowing” campaign, particularly in Syria.
Building an updated long-range Iran strike option is not something the IAF will do overnight, but the project has certainly begun in earnest.
The mammoth planning has to take into consideration highly complex aspects, including intelligence, the right choice of ammunition, the right combination of jets and refueling configurations, as well as pilot training. There can be no comparison with closer missions that the IAF is used to undertaking.
Former IAF Commander Maj. Gen. (res.) Eitan Ben Eliyahu provided a glimpse into this planning, telling Army Radio last Tuesday, “We’re talking about something practical. This isn’t about just one specific target – the IAF must be used to operating at distances of 2,000 kilometers. This is a whole ensemble of flight technique and operational planning. One must know emergency airfields for landing on the way, and how to manage fuel differently.”
Once Lost Biblical Blue Dye Returns In Preparation For 3rd Temple – Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz - https://www.prophecynewswatch.com/article.cfm?recent_news_id=5126
After being lost for 1,600 years, the Biblical blue dye is returning in force. With over 270,000 sets of fringes being made to date, the factory that produces the pigment from the murex snail is gearing up to triple its production. But they know that the redemption is near and the Third Temple will need even more of the precious dye to start operations.
Ptil Tekhelet, a non-profit based in Kfar Adumim, produces the special Biblically mandated indigo dye made from the murex snail used in the mitzvah of tztitzit (fringes) that every Jewish man is commanded to wear on a four-cornered garment.
Techelet is a blue dye highly prized by ancient Mediterranean civilizations and mentioned 49 times in the Hebrew Bible. It was used in the clothing of the High Priest, the tapestries in the Tabernacle, and in tzitzit (ritual fringes worn by Jewish men).
The dye can be collected by crushing the snails, or by laboriously milking the snails and collecting the excretion. 12,000 snails might yield 1.4 grams of dye, which is only enough to color the trim of a single garment. Because of this, this Royal Blue or Royal Purple dye was very expensive, making it an almost exclusive sign of kingship and royalty.
Purple dye was considered a color of prestige during the Roman period so much so that at certain points in time the common masses were forbidden from wearing the color. Interestingly, the color of this dye becomes more vibrant when left in the sun, and it is possible that different versions of the color can be made by making the dye in the sun or in the shade.
PTIL TEKHELET: 270,000 SETS MADE, MUCH MORE TO COME
Baruch Sterman has spent more than 30 years working to revive this Biblical commandment. In 1988, he and a few others went on a diving expedition in search of Murex snails before going on to co-found the Ptil Tekhelet.
After years of research by various experts, the Ptil Tekhelet organization began making threads dyed in techelet in 1991, producing about 300 sets of four in the first year. According to their website, they have to date produced an astounding 270,000 sets of the holy threads
But even that astounding amount is not enough. The demand for the Biblical pigment is growing by leaps and bounds and the organization plans to triple its production over the next year.
"We took a hit during the pandemic but the demand is returning even stronger," Sterman said. "We need to meet this demand and prepare for what seems to be coming down the road. When a person begins to wear techelet, he will do so for the rest of his life, as will his children. Many of the people are new to techelet and a large percentage are newly religious. But more and more, we are seeing what would be considered mainstream Orthodox Jews."
Sterman has a powerful insight into the timely return of this mitzvah. He noted that the text in the Torah commanding Jews to wear techelet was always available and Jews continued to wear techelet even after the Temple was destroyed.
"We didn't forget the mitzvah. Techelet was taken away from us," Sterman said. "The Romans outlawed it for religious Jews, restricting it to only the elite, the royals, and for secular purposes. The production of techelet was highly lucrative. There was tremendous oppression. Tecehelet identified the Jews. It was a source of national pride and national identity."
Soon after the Roman decrees, the details of its production including the identity of the dye's source were lost.
"The 7th century was the final destruction of the Jewish identity in the land of Israel. That is when techelet was finally lost," Sterman said. "Techelet is making a comeback now because we are returning to our national identity and pride. Israel never needed to invent a flag. The Israeli flag is modeled after the tallit and its colors, our national colors are techelet and white."
"When the Third Temple is built, we will need to increase our production even more," Sterman said. "The Temple requires a ton of techelet."
HEART OF STONE; HEART OF FLESH
Yosef Steinberg runs the organization Uzchartem (you will remember) which helps raise awareness of the mitzvah of techelet. He has helped influence at least 6,000 people over the last six years. Steinberg explained that his initiative was influence by Malcolm Gladwell's book, The Tipping Point, which examines how small and seemingly insignificant practical changes can influence large sociological phenomena.
"I feel that we are close to the tipping point now," Steinberg said. "Many people are wearing the techelet but I know of about 1,000 Haredi Jews in one community near Jerusalem who secretly wear the techelet under their clothes because it is not accepted in their communities. As soon as it becomes a little more mainstream, it will immediately be all over the place."
Steinberg understands the recent interest in this long-neglected mitzvah is due to the rapidly approaching geula. He cited a mishna that states that the morning Shema prayer can be said when it is light enough to differentiate between the techelet thread in the tzitzit garment and the white threads.
"This can be understood as a parable that techelet can only really be seen in the light of redemption," "Steinberg said. "Everyone knows that we are standing in front of the light of geula (redemption). The exile is all dark and when it starts to be light, when we are in a geula period of time we can see the techelet. We have to prepare for this. We don't really need techelet in the exile. The Temple is a big part of this process and we need techelet for the Temple."
"Every mitzvah corresponds to a part of the body," Steinberg said. "The tzitzit correspond to the heart and awaken the heart to serving God. The return of the mitzvah of techelet is returning our hearts to God, turning our hearts of stone to hearts of flesh," he added, paraphrasing Ezekiel 36:26.
Techelet was undoubtedly rare and mere hints have been found to date. The archeological dig in Tel Shikmona located south of Haifa revealed an Iron Age settlement that dates back to the 11th to 6th centuries BC century that researchers concluded hosted a factory for the production of the valuable dye. The Temple Mount Sifting Project (TMSP) uncovered more than 20 murex trunculus shells in dirt taken from the Temple Mount.
In 2014, The Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA) confirmed that a 2,000-year-old piece of fabric from the Wadi Murabba'at caves located south of Qumran was dyed using the extract from the murex snail. Archaeologists at Tel Aviv University (TAU) discovered reserved pieces of cloth from King David and King Solomon's time at ancient copper mines in the Timna Valley in Israel's southern Negev desert that had been colored with techelet.
China Is Feverishly Preparing for The Coming Global Famine, But The U.S. Is Taking A Completely Different Approach - by Michael Snyder - http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/china-is-feverishly-preparing-for-the-coming-global-famine-but-the-u-s-is-taking-a-completely-different-approach/
We live at a time when global food supplies are getting tighter and tighter and global food prices just keep going higher and higher. Bizarre weather patterns and widespread natural disasters have been playing havoc with food production all over the planet, and the COVID pandemic has thrown worldwide supply chains into a state of complete and utter chaos. As a result, the world is “currently battling the worst hunger crisis this century”, and it is expected to get even worse in 2022. Of course this is just the beginning. For a very long time, I have been warning that global trends indicate that we are heading toward a horrifying global famine, and that is just one of the reasons why I have been relentlessly encouraging my readers to get prepared while they still can.
Apparently, the Chinese government can also see what is coming, because right now they are hoarding food on an unprecedented scale…
Less than 20% of the world’s population has managed to stockpile more than half of the globe’s maize and other grains, leading to steep price increases across the planet and dropping more countries into famine.
The hoarding is taking place in China.
If everything is going to be just fine, why would China be doing this?
It simply would not make sense.
But if famine is on the way, the Chinese are being extremely prudent. And the amount of food that they are now stockpiling is definitely eye-popping…
According to data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, China is expected to have 69% of the globe’s maize reserves in the first half of crop year 2022, 60% of its rice and 51% of its wheat.
If things hit the fan in 2022 or beyond, Chinese officials have ensured that their people are going to be able to eat. In fact, they are estimating that their wheat reserves could meet demand “for one and a half years”…
China is maintaining its food stockpiles at a “historically high level,” Qin Yuyun, head of grain reserves at the National Food and Strategic Reserves Administration, told reporters in November. “Our wheat stockpiles can meet demand for one and a half years. There is no problem whatsoever about the supply of food.”
So what is the U.S. doing?
Surely we must be stockpiling lots of food too, right?
Sadly, we aren’t.
There were times in the past when the U.S. government stockpiled large amounts of food, but those programs have mostly been eliminated…
The government has in the past stockpiled food, but these programs were mainly to support farmers hurt by low prices. For example, in the late 1970s and early 1980s, the Department of Agriculture (USDA) bought surplus dairy products, which it distributed to Americans via various welfare programs.
At this point, the U.S. government does not anticipate that there will be a need to supply food to the entire country.
The U.S. does have some commodities that it has purchased for aid programs, and there is a very limited amount of food, water and generators at eight widely scattered FEMA distribution centers…
Today, the USDA still buys various commodities for both domestic and international food aid programs. It also maintains a vault in Fort Collins, CO, that houses thousands of plant species and genetic material of livestock in the event of a disaster.
The SNS does not contain food reserves, but the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) stockpiles food, water, generators, and other resources in eight distribution centers located in the United States and its territories.
In the event of a major national emergency, the very limited amount of food that the U.S. government has on hand will be gone almost immediately.
Once it is gone, you will be on your own.
I would suggest that you prepare accordingly.
With each passing day, the price of food just continues to go even higher. According to a CNN report that was published in November, the global price of food had risen “more than 30% over the past year”…
The FAO Food Price Index tracks monthly changes across a range of food commodities. The index has risen by more than 30% over the past year.
Food prices are going to go even higher in 2022, and this is going to push millions more people around the globe into hunger.
But don’t worry, because the elite in the western world have a solution.
As our friends at Zero Hedge have pointed out, they are now encouraging all of us to eat bugs as global food supplies get tighter…
So without a doubt, Beijing has been stockpiling food to avoid a collapse as central bankers have yet to figure out how to print food from thin air. But don’t worry, as the global food situation worsens, we’re all likely going to be forced to eat crickets, worms, and grasshoppers.
Does the idea of chomping down on a crunchy grasshopper make you salivate?
If not, you might want to stockpile food while you have the opportunity to do so.
The past couple of years have shown us how vulnerable our supply chains really are, and the shortages we are now experiencing are not going away any time soon.
Eventually, there will be severe famines all over the planet.
The Chinese are working really hard to prepare for that time, and the U.S. government is not.
So if you are counting on the government to save you when things get really crazy, you are going to be severely disappointed.
Daily Jot: Stupidocrisy: The friendly skies - Bill Wilson -
COVID Czar Anthony Fauci has gone from mask-no mask-mask to whatever and now he would welcome airlines requiring everyone who flies on a domestic flight to not only wear a mask, but to have the government-mandated COVID serum, ah, sorry, vaccination. This, according to the Federal Aviation Administration, must also include pilots. A group of attorneys and doctors have written the FAA, “That Both the FAA & Commercial Airline Industry Appear to Have Violated Long-Standing CFR Regulations Which Disallow Medical Clearance of Pilots Who Have Received Non-FDA Approved Products – Lest “Aeromedically Significant Adverse Effects Manifest.” In other words, this mandate endangers everyone who flies.
The letter notes that FAA has violated its own regulation that “Disallows medical clearance of Pilots who have consumed non-FDA approved products like COVID vaccines” and that the FAA appears “to be putting both pilots and the general public at risk of death and/or serious injury” by ignoring this regulation for COVID vaccinated pilots. The letter, signed by citizens’ rights activists, lawyers, doctors, pilots and military officers, cites specific examples of pilots who were adversely affected by the vaccine and had to be grounded as safety risks. The group also demands that the government medically flag all vaccinated pilots and have them tested for blood clotting and cardiac health. If they fail the tests, they must be grounded, according to the letter.
In a non-related incident on a Delta flight last week, 51-year old former Playboy model, Raiders cheerleader, and actress Patricia Cornwall, who was not wearing her mask over her mouth and nose attacked an 80-year-old man for not wearing a mask. Court documents indicate that Cornwall was blocked from her seat by a flight attendant serving beverages, and asked that Cornwall find an open seat until the aisle was cleared. She responded, “What am I, Rosa Parks?” The document says the 80-year-old man “told Cornwall it was an inappropriate comment and that she ‘isn’t black….this isn’t Alabama and this isn’t a bus.'” Caught on video, Cornwall began berating him for not being masked up, got close to his face and spit on him, and hit him with her fist. She refused to mask up until the 80-year-old man put his mask up, as they dragged her away.
The handling of this entire COVID pandemic is a mess. The government is so crazed that it has used fear mongering to whip people into a frenzy, even to the point of attacking those they perceive are not compliant with the drummed-up safety requirements. And the government is so set on getting everybody to take its mandated serum that it is violating its own regulations and putting thousands of peoples’ lives at risk. Not to mention the failed COVID treatment protocols of using remdesivir and ventilators that added to the death tolls. As Christ said of the end times in Matthew 24:10, “And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.” It may not be the end of days, but the hate has already begun. So much for flying the friendly skies, or anything friendly for that matter. Say it with me…Stupidocrisy.

Daily Devotion: A Little Salty - by Greg Laurie – www.harvest.org
Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this? —Esther 4:14
https://harvest.org/resources/devotion/a-little-salty/ - Listen
Edward Everett Hale said, “I am only one, but I am one; I cannot do everything, but I can do something. What I can do I ought to do, and what I ought to do, by God’s grace, I will do.”
Think of the people who have made history because they stood up for what is right and what is true. One godly man or one godly woman in the darkest situation can make a big difference.
Jesus said, “You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men” (Matthew 5:13 NKJV).
Think about how just a pinch of salt can make all the difference in the world. Just the right amount can make all the difference in the world.
Many times, we’re not happy with where we are. Maybe it’s the neighborhood we live in or the job that we have. But does it ever occur to us that God has placed us where we are “for such a time as this”?
That’s a question Mordecai posed to his cousin, Esther, who won a beauty contest and became the queen of Persia. But she was a Jew and hadn’t revealed that to her husband, the king.
Meanwhile, a wicked man named Haman hatched a plot to execute all the Jews. Esther was oblivious to it as she lived in the comforts of the palace, but then Mordecai brought it to her attention. He said, “Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” (Esther 4:14 NKJV).
You may be the only Christian in your sphere of influence right now. You may be the only follower of Jesus Christ that others will see.

IF YOU HAVE BEEN BLESSED THROUGH THIS MINISTRY, THEN WE ASK THAT YOU WOULD PLEASE REMEMBER PROPHECY UPDATE IN YOUR GIVING - WE ARE TRULY, TRULY, THANKFUL FOR YOUR SUPPORT
WORTHY OF YOUR SUPPORT?
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.

"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
