Just a Matter of Time - By Daymond Duck -
On his Middle East Update for May 18, 2020, highly recognized prophecy teacher, Amir Tsarfati, said, "The New World Order is already here because all of the governments submitted willfully all the residents of their countries to orders coming from a central committee somewhere in Europe. . . . We are the generation that shall not pass away."
Tsarfati's point is well taken: Nations all over the world shut down their economies and ordered their citizens into lockdown almost simultaneously.
It is not likely that a global shutdown would happen unless there was a group of powerful people (the New World Order) behind it.
Along this same line, it may not mean a thing, but it seems more than strange that Bill Gates recently got a global patent on a cryptocurrency system to track all buying and selling under the number WO2020060606 (World Order 666) and the House of Representatives recently passed a bill called TRACE under the number H.R.6666 to track everyone.
Here are some more signs indicating that the Tribulation Period could be just a matter of time.
One, according to Jesus and Peter, there will be signs in the sun, moon and stars before and after the Tribulation Period (Matt. 24:29; Acts 2:20).
There have been several reports in recent weeks that 2019 and 2020 are record-setting years for the lack of solar flares on the sun.
Only God could know that the activity of the sun would change when so many other prophecies are being fulfilled.
For whatever it is worth, in mid-May 2020, the temperature at the Arctic reached the warmest ever recorded (80 degrees F.), and just a little south of the Arctic Circle, 86 degrees F. in Siberia.
Two, world leaders will divide Israel, and the Jews in Judea will need to flee into the wilderness at the middle of the Tribulation Period (Joel 3:2; Matt. 24:15-16; Rev. 12:13-16).
In April 2020, the International Criminal Court (ICC) Prosecutor announced her plans to prosecute Israel for war crimes against the Palestinians in Judea, Samaria, and Gaza.
On May 15, 2020, U.S. Sec. of State Mike Pompeo warned the ICC that it does not have jurisdiction in this matter, it is allowing itself to be a political tool of the Palestinians, it should not ignore international laws, and it must back off or the U.S. will "exact consequences."
The desire to divide Israel is sparking a controversy between the U.S. and the ICC.
Three, on May 18, 2020, Pres. Trump said the National Institute of Health (NIH) study that Dr. Fauci cites (and paid for as head of the NIH) to question the effectiveness of hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin is faulty, and the data it produced is unreliable, so he (Trump) was taking the drug and doing well.
Is it reasonable to ask why is Dr. Fauci is using a faulty study to shut down America's economy and churches until Bill Gates can complete his work on a vaccine and tattoo to mark and track everyone on earth?
Four, as of mid-May 2020, the Israel Institute for Biological Research (IIBR) has successfully completed Coronavirus vaccine tests on rodents and will soon start tests on other animals.
If their new tests are successful, IIBR will test their vaccine on humans, and they could possibly have a vaccine in one year or less.
If they can come up with a vaccine that doesn't contain fetal tissue and doesn't require a global ID number and Mark, it could be an answer to prayer.
But don't get too excited.
The Coronavirus Crisis is not just about creating a vaccine.
It is primarily about initiating a tracking system and controlling everyone on earth by denying those that are not vaccinated the right to buy and sell.
Those that want to get excited should rejoice about the fact that the Rapture is at least 3 ½ years (and perhaps more) before a tracking system is implemented globally.
But do not be deceived: a global tracking system is now being fast-tracked.
It is not the Mark of the beast, but it could be the beginning of it.
Five, on May 18, 2020, it was reported that Alan Dershowitz said that in 1905 the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the government has a right to force citizens to be vaccinated to curb the spread of a contagious disease, and U.S. citizens have no right to refuse.
Dershowitz said a person that does not want to be vaccinated may not have a legal basis for refusal unless they can prove that it would seriously impair their health and possibly cause their death.
When the Mark of the Beast is instituted, a person will have two choices: take it or die (Rev. 13:15-18).
For whatever it is worth, attorney John Whitehead recently said Dershowitz is wrong.
Christians in the U.S. should pray that Whitehead is right.
Six, the Bible teaches that natural disasters will increase in frequency and intensity (like birth pains) at the end of the age.
On May 18, 2020, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) said hurricanes and typhoons are getting stronger, moving slower, and causing increased destruction and flooding.
An interesting 12 min. video on YouTube documents this with graphic scenes of the worst sandstorm in Egypt since 1994; hail bigger than a baseball in Mexico; a 6.5 earthquake in Nevada; locusts and the Coronavirus in Africa pushing 265 million people toward starvation this year; the strongest cyclone in India in more than 10 years; the strongest cyclone on record before it weakened and devastated Bangladesh, etc.
All of this occurred around the middle of May and can be viewed at:
Finally, God offers everyone (a person can choose to accept or reject) a free gift (the atonement of the Christ on the cross) that will heal their sin nature, seal them with the Holy Spirit, get them a wonderful new body, and get them into heaven forever.
But Satan wants to force everyone (no choice) to take a vaccine that will contaminate their body (with DNA from fetal tissue, etc.), seal them with a tattoo or Mark, and get them into Hell forever (Rev. 14:9-10).
If you haven't made the right choice, do it soon.

Israel Watch: Annexation Threats - Jim Fletcher -
The international community's propaganda machines are working overtime, as growing criticism of Israel's intention to annex parts of Judea and Samara looms.
Benjamin Netanyahu has announced plans for Israel to annex all the Israeli communities established there since the 1967 war.
According to a report in the Times of Israel:
"According to the U.S. administration, Israel would be annexing around 30 percent of the West Bank. However, based on the maps presented by Netanyahu and the administration, experts estimate it would actually be 20 percent. This is in addition to the 'exchange of territories and populations' that appear in the plan in the Negev and Galilee area known as The Triangle."
In conjunction with the Trump Peace Plan, the annexation is supposed to take place in July. At some distant point in the future, a very limited Palestinian state would be established. People on both sides of this divide know it wouldn't be viable, but there is something else at play here, too.
Although he is the weakest presidential candidate in my lifetime, Joe Biden announced this week that if he wins the White House, he will reverse all of Trump's Israel policies. This is no surprise. In fact, when the day comes that the "anti-Trump" resides in the White House, we will see a backlash and hatred of Israel never before seen.
The usual suspects in Europe, including the much-weakened European Union, are threatening Israel over annexation. They vow to step-up boycott activities.
Writing this week for the Jewish News Service, Melanie Phillips addressed this: "The E.U. has been mulling over punitive measures against Israel if it goes ahead with what its Western critics call "annexation of the occupied territories of the West Bank."
She then identified the individual countries:
"A number of member states, headed by France along with Spain, Italy, the Netherlands, Ireland, Sweden, Denmark, Poland, Belgium and Luxembourg, are calling for a hard line.
"This is a serious misreading of international law. Israel is not 'occupying' these territories. In law, occupation can only occur if the land belongs to a sovereign power, which was never the case here..."
Isn't that interesting? There in black and white is the crux of the matter, yet when one uses this argument, it is rejected out-of-hand by leftists. In effect, they are denying reality.
And that's what makes this era so difficult to live through. Israel is vilified by the likes of Iran and Turkey, who are also working to (even on social media!) actively undermine the U.S. by supporting the anarchists rioting across the country in the wake of the George Floyd killing. That's what leftists do, they work together to undermine and destroy people they perceive to be their enemies.
Remember, you can never appease leftist enemies by concessions. They demand more. And if you do unilaterally support your own interests, as Israel is doing, they will become even more unhinged.
There is a reprieve of sorts going on now with regard to Israel and her support from the U.S. But post-Trump, whenever that is, will see the attempted rollbacks of all Israel's gains.
If that means a war to roll-back annexation, that's what our enemies will launch.
A New Global Club Of 10 Nations - Precursor to The Beast of Revelation? - By PNW Staff - https://www.prophecynewswatch.com/article.cfm?recent_news_id=4086
The United Kingdom has proposed a plan to create a new club of democratic nations to address the reliance of the world on Chinese technology partners for 5G.
The COVID-19 crisis has revealed the dangers of relying on outside sources for infrastructure needs but more importantly to many nations is the security risk associated with giving Chinese tech companies so much control over what many believe will be a new technology boom reaching every aspect of our lives.
5G technology will do much more than just give us faster download speeds and low latency. Through it's increased capacity and connectivity for billions of devices-especially in the areas of virtual reality, the Internet of Things, and artificial intelligence it has the potential to create a network that can connect virtually everyone and everything together including machines, objects, and devices.
Those countries who can create the infrastructure and roll it out nationwide first have the greater potential to lead in many areas that will have global implications for decades to come.
Such fears have led the US in recent months to take action against Huawei, China's first global tech brand and a maker of network equipment and smartphones. It is now prevented from doing business in the US, as it believes the company is being used by the Chinese leadership to serve their interest instead of the countries it is building it for.
The UK has also launched an inquiry into Huawei's involvement in the country's mobile network upgrade in the wake of US sanctions against the company and has now proposed a far more reaching solution - the 'D10'.
The 'D10' club of democratic partners, which would include G7 countries - UK, US, Italy, Germany, France, Japan and Canada - plus Australia, South Korea and India would aim to create alternative suppliers of 5G equipment and other technologies to avoid relying on China.
These 10 members represent more than 50% of the worlds Gross Domestic Product and would certainly have the economic power to make changes on a global scale. While it is unlikely at this point in time, should these 10 countries create a more permanent and long lasting alliance beyond responding to the 5G issue it would represent one of the most powerful economic alliances in the history of our world.
This proposed club of nations demonstrates that when their is common cause, countries can come together in times of difficulty or crisis. The initial formation of the G7 came about in response to economic crisis of the past. The current economic crises caused by COVID-19 could certainly still result in some global alliances as the world looks to unify it's response and policies to deal with a crisis that is far from over.
Why should any of this matter to the Christian? Beyond the current geo-political and technological implications, there is a pattern developing here that is worth noting in terms of a Biblical context that gives us a foreshadowing of things yet to come.
The book of Revelation in the New Testament and the Book of Daniel in the Old Testament detail a final alliance of nations that will consist of 10 kings or 10 nations, some of which many prophecy experts believe will include portions of what used to be the Roman Empire. It is out of this 10 kingdom alliance that the Antichrist comes to power and begins his reign that is elaborated upon in detail in the book of Revelation.
Interestingly enough Revelation describes how the the Kings of the East (China?) will trouble this global leader and that he eventually marches upon the Middle East for a final conflict where they will meet - resulting in what is often referred to as Armageddon and climaxes with Christ's Second Coming.
While this current conflict over 5G technology may seem like a far cry from the descriptions in Revelation, it still serves as a reminder how quickly our world can change and how our history can often build upon previous actions, similar to how WW2 was built on the foundations of WW1. Precedent setting events such as this new D10 alliance can create patterns for the future and we should be paying attention or at the very least - be reminded to understand what our Bible teaches does teach us in regards to "last things'.
Who are the nations involved, what is the timeline, what technologies does the Bible describe being used at this time in history? What is the role of Israel (does Trumps peace plan fit the prophecy of Daniel 9:27?) We should not be caught unaware of the importance of world developments in relationship to Bible Prophecy. However, such a study of these topics requires a commitment of time to explore these important issues.
I Never Thought I Would See the Day (Part 5) - By Jan Markell - www.olivetreeviews.org
Because our times have so changed since early 2020, almost everyone is breathless and almost everyone is saying the same thing- they never thought they would see the things happen like they are happening today!
Whoever thought an invisible enemy, a virus no less, could turn the world upside down?
Let's consider just a few of these issues.
I never thought I would see the day when:
Prisoners would be let out of jail at the very same time Christians were being kept out of church.
It would be so obvious why America is not a prominent player in Bible prophecy. Something had to neutralize us, or a series of events would weaken the superpower.
People I admired and trusted told me they were going to report good people to authorities who weren't keeping the "letter of the law" such as proper social distancing. Friends reporting friends? Neighbors reporting neighbors? Has love grown cold?
The Coronavirus would do us all a favor and put "Drag Queen Story Hour" out of business for a season!
It would be so blatantly obvious that we are in the absolute last of the last days-in fact, the last hour-but our pulpits still insist on being quiet about that. For the first time, many people truly want to understand the times and how the Bible applies to them!
The media would call Republicans "the party of death" when they just want to open businesses and save the lives of millions who are in total despair. Suicide, alcoholism, and drug abuse are soaring.
The one institution pushing back on the despair, the church, would be declared "non-essential" but not marijuana shops or some abortion clinics.
In just a matter of weeks, people accepted surveillance in the name of safety and security. No one questions drones, cameras, and apps watching our every move.
Businesses that took a lifetime to build and that even spanned three generations, were destroyed in a few weeks-not just in America but around the world.
Some cities are asking churches to keep logs of every person who enters their building so they can then be tracked and traced.
Some churches can re-open but with limitless restrictions including how you handle communion, but Costco and Home Depot are allowed hundreds of customers with just a couple of restrictions.
Amidst the Coronavirus crisis, many would rush to the defense of China who caused it all to happen!
Vaccines, that once saved lives, would get so corrupted that they now risk lives, yet there is talk that all Americans must get a vaccine for the Coronavirus. Constitutional scholar, Alan Dershowitz, says the government absolutely can "plunge a needle into your arm."
The rugged American spirit that drove pioneers to fend off Indians, would get so diminished that many caved to the whims of politicians, who obsessed over masks and social distancing. And we let them.
Two unknown doctors appeared daily in press briefings presenting their evidence to ruin our great country and it seemed like our leaders never gathered a second opinion. And when some spoke up to differ, they were shut down.
The stage is clearly being set for the Tribulation, yet most people are clueless because Bible prophecy has been deemed irrelevant and inconvenient. The world is being prepared for a demonic savior, yet the masses are not only clueless, they will run pell-mell into his arms. He will promise to restore order out of this chaos. He is waiting in the wings. His title is Antichrist.
You never thought you would live to see this day either, did you?
We're not just end-time kooks wandering down Main Street warning about a zombie apocalypse. We're warning that the Bible predicted some things that would set the stage for the final moments of history as we know it. The Church would be removed before the curtain could go up and that final dramatic scene could be played out.
That final scene is imminent. Everything is falling into place. Don't delay putting your faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior of your life. You are not guaranteed a tomorrow to make that call.
Daily Jot: The value of life to God and country - Bill Wilson - www.dailyjot.com
The Declaration of Independence states, "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." Think about this: Without life, there is no liberty and without liberty, happiness is not fulfilled. Christ said in John 10:10, "I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly." Deuteronomy 30:19 says, "I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both you and your seed may live." No matter race, religion, nationality, social status, or anything else, LIFE is the most common right we share as humans.
When life is not honored as the most precious and valued treasure of humanity, justice truly falls in the streets and truth is hidden beneath the chains of society's testimony. It is upon all of us. No excuse. You can talk politics. You can talk law. You can debate the past, the present and the future. Life, all life, has value. This constant will never change. Sadly, there are people on earth who do not respect that value because of the biases and prejudices they carry. While they may believe their load is light because they have it all settled in their hearts and minds, they burden the rest of society with a millstone consisting of dark shadows, uncertainties and oppression.
Let me speak in very plain English: The unnecessary and senseless taking of a life undermines civil society and it is an abhorrence to the Christian faith. All of us should be defenders of life because it is what we share in common as humans as created and ordained by God himself. Assigning some form of guilt or defamation of character is no justification for brutal treatment or the unnecessary taking of a life. If one is entrusted with the authority to protect and defend society, it is also a responsibility to protect even the lives of those who are violating the laws and rules, so long as they are not a direct threat to life. A most sacred principle in the US criminal justice system is that a defendant is innocent until proven guilty.
How is it then that the death sentence can be executed without trial or even due process? Where is equal protection under the law if those who are charged with upholding the law, violate its most sacred principle? Many will read this and automatically think I am against law enforcement or support the violence that is taking place. Don't be ignorant. I am saying that life should be preserved with every reasonable effort. If you were in the same shoes as those who recently have been killed, you wouldn't think it right if someone laid a knee to your neck; hunted you down in the street and provoked you to death; or busted down the door of your apartment at night and shot you eight times when you did nothing wrong. There is no "Yeah, but" on this. Life is precious. Our laws as a nation, and the directives of God require it. Equally.
Daily Devotion: Why Christians Have Hope - by Greg Laurie - www.harvest.org
Jesus said to her, 'I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?' -John 11:25-26
When the daughter of a friend of mine died unexpectedly I told him that he would have a lot of questions and struggles. One of those struggles would be the thought that he would never see her again.
"Yeah, I was just thinking that," he said. "And I was thinking I'll never hear her voice again."
"I want you to know it isn't true," I said. "You will see her again. You will hear her voice again. You will be with her again in the resurrection."
This is God's promise for all of us. And this is why we have hope as Christians. Everything doesn't end when we leave this earth.
When Lazarus died, Jesus said to his sister Martha, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?" (John 11:25-26 NKJV).
In other words, "Martha, listen, death is not the end." We should live on promises not explanations, and we shouldn't spend too much time asking why. There's nothing wrong with asking God why, of course. But, just don't necessarily expect an answer.
God says, "For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways. . . . For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts" (Isaiah 55:8-9 NKJV).
Yes, our physical lives will end one day. But each of us is a soul in a body, and we'll live on in eternity. And according to the Bible, one day Heaven will come down to earth. Heaven and earth will become one.
God has a future and a hope for every one of His followers. That is why, in a seemingly hopeless world, we can have hope.
