Turn on Your Spiritual Radar, Or Else

The #1 reason why Christians do not comprehend the times we are in is they have turned off their spiritual radar. 

Imagine you are flying an airplane on a sunny, warm day. No clouds anywhere and winds are mild. The flat ground is well below you. You take in the scenic view from the sky. Flying in this environment is a piece of cake.

Now imagine you are flying at night on a dark, stormy, moonless night. Clouds are everywhere, and wind and rain are buffeting the plane. Visibility is no better than 200 yards out. Ground elevation is rising, but you do not know it. A mountain range is approaching, but you cannot see it. There is other air traffic in the area, but you have no idea where. You're in danger because you cannot see. You don't know what's coming until it is already upon you, and then it's too late to prepare and maneuver.  

However, if your airplane had a radar system, you could see everything in spite of the darkness. You would see dangers approaching in time to respond.

God gives his people spiritual radar - it is prophecy. What is prophecy? Prophecy is direct revelation from the Lord for the purpose of exhorting, encouraging and warning people and giving insight about what is happening now and what is coming in the future. To see what prophecy looks like, read the books of Revelation, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, or the minor prophets like Joel, Zechariah, Micah and Habbakuk. Those books are compilations of prophetic revelation. The dreams and visions in the Book of Daniel are prophecy, as is God's promise to Abraham that he would bless him and make him a great nation.

Prophecy is supernatural. It comes right from the throne room of God. The Bible is full of examples of God giving direct revelation to people in the form of dreams, visions, utterances, a burning bush, a message from an angel, writing on the wall, a talking donkey - you name it! God speaks any way he chooses.

Moreover, the gift of prophecy is still in operation. People have this gift of direct revelation today, as the following verses teach clearly and plainly:

"'And it shall be in the last days,' God says, 'That I will pour forth of My Spirit on all mankind; And your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams; Even on My bondslaves, both men and women, I will in those days pour forth of My Spirit and they shall prophesy.'" - Acts 2:17-18

This verse as quoted by the Apostle Peter is originally from the book of Joel. Peter was announcing its fulfillment in these last days, which is the time we are in between the first and second comings of the Messiah. Before the pouring of the Holy Spirit, prophetic revelation was uncommon and limited to designated individuals like prophets. In this age, the gift of prophesy has become common - sons and daughters, young and old, people of all walks and positions will prophesy. This doesn't mean everyone has this gift, but someone in your church or Christian community should. 

"Pursue love, yet desire earnestly spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy." - 1 Corinthians 14:1

While all spiritual gifts are valuable and necessary, the Apostle Paul clearly says the most important is prophecy. Why? Because it provides direct revelation from God to build up the body of Christ. 

"Do not quench the Spirit; do not despise prophetic utterances. But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good." - 1 Thessalonians 5:19-21

After Paul admonishes not to quench the work of God's Spirit, the very next instruction is not to despise prophetic utterances. I'll put it differently: If you want to quench the Spirit in your life, ignore the gift of prophecy. Of course, we should test every message and make sure it is from the Lord. True prophecy does not contradict the Bible; it clarifies and applies it. God gives us discernment to help us see which messages are really from him.

The problem is many Christians and churches have tossed out the gift of prophecy and turned off their spiritual radar. They are flying blind on a dark, stormy night. Why is this, if the Bible's teaching on this is clear? I call it groupthink unbelief. No one in their community believes in this gift, so they don't either. But God does not judge us by whether we follow the crowd. He judges by whether we follow him. Unbelief is sin. Again, this does not mean everyone should have the gift of prophecy, but we should all be listening to people who do.

The Christian walk is supposed to be supernatural. Jesus said his followers will do greater works than him. That's astonishing! I know I haven't done anything remotely that great. Perhaps we all need to stretch our faith and believe bigger.

My point here is that all Christians should understand that we are at the doorstep of the end. God has been proclaiming the times loudly through many different people, as well as through events unfolding in the world. "Now learn the parable from the fig tree: when its branch has already become tender and puts forth its leaves, you know that summer is near." (Matthew 24:32) Judgment is coming upon America. Satan's one-world beast government will soon be established. Jesus is coming! God has raised up many watchmen and harbingers who are testifying and prophesying about these coming events.

In the follow up to this post, I will list some people who I believe are credible watchmen of the end times and provide links to their messages.

This Is The Rapture - Bible Verses

For Part One of this post, see This Is The Rapture!

Jesus is coming soon! He will gather his church in the air and spirit them away before the wrath of God is poured out on earth and Satan's full mayhem is unleashed in the form of the New World Order.

There is a lot of debate about the Rapture, even among the wisest and most knowledgeable of the Scriptures. The reason why is it has been concealed! First, the Lord wants his appearance to be a surprise. "I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what hour I will come to you," Jesus said in Revelation 3:3. So it's not surprising that the Bible is opaque on this question. Moreover, insight into the Rapture has been concealed since the time of Daniel. "But as for you, Daniel, conceal these words and seal up the book until the end of time." It was the decision of God himself to seal up the insight he gave to Daniel. But the words have recently been unsealed, because WE ARE AT THE TIME OF THE END. I highly recommend this video by Jonathan Kleck about Daniel 12: 

The Unrolled Scroll

Below are some verses in Scripture that testify to the Rapture, when Jesus rescues his saints.

Revelation 3:10-11
Because you have kept the word of My perseverance, I also will keep you from the hour of testing, that hour which is about to come upon the whole world*, to test those who dwell on the earth. I am coming quickly.

* This is the Rapture! Those who persevere in the faith will be spared the time of testing coming upon the world.

Luke 21:34-36
Be on guard, so that your hearts will not be weighted down with dissipation and drunkenness and the worries of life, and that day will not come on you suddenly like a trap; for it will come upon all those who dwell on the face of all the earth. But keep on the alert at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that are about to take place*, and to stand before the Son of Man.

* This is the rapture! It is an escape from cataclysmic events Jesus describes in the section prior to this verse. Who escapes? Those who stay on the alert, praying and maintaining their relationship with the Lord.

Matthew 24:36-41
But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone. For the coming of the Son of Man will be just like the days of Noah. For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and they did not understand until the flood came and took them all away; so will the coming of the Son of Man be. Then there will be two men in the field; one will be taken and one will be left. Two women will be grinding at the mill; one will be taken and one will be left.*

* This is the Rapture! Note the comparison to the days of Noah, when Noah and his family were saved in the ark from the wrath of God poured out on earth. God promised no more floods. This time it will be fire.

No one knows the day or the hour. Life at the time may seem almost normal. Eating, drinking, marrying, and then Jesus comes! Two people at work, one a believer and the other not, one taken into the air and the other left behind. Then comes judgment on earth.

Daniel 12:1
Now at that time Michael, the great prince who stands guard over the sons of your people, will arise. And there will be a time of distress such as never occurred since there was a nation until that time; and at that time your people, everyone who is found written in the book, will be rescued.*

* This is the Rapture! At the time of distress, everyone whose name is written in the Book of Life will be rescued. The word "rescue" in Hebrew implies a "slippery escape." We will be rescued right as all hell is breaking loose.

Daniel 12:11
And from the time that the daily sacrifice is taken away*, and the abomination of desolation is set up, there shall be one thousand two hundred and ninety days. Blessed is he who waits, and comes to the one thousand three hundred and thirty-five days.

* This is the Rapture! In the age before the coming of the Messiah, the temple was a building in Jerusalem dedicated to the worship of God. In the end times, which is the era between the first and second comings of Christ, the temple is the human body. The moment Jesus died on the cross, the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom and the earth shook. This event signified God's presence and power would no longer dwell in a temple in Jerusalem. Instead, God's Spirit would dwell in our bodies. Jesus talked extensively about how the Holy Spirit would come and lead and empower us. At Pentecost this was fulfilled dramatically and continues to present. The Apostle Paul also wrote about how the temple is our body, specifically the bodies of men and women who are born again and in whom the Spirit dwells.

In the age before the coming of the Messiah, the daily sacrifice was in fact a twice-daily burnt offering presented to the Lord in the temple. It paid homage to and symbolized God's continual presence, communion and blessing among the people of Israel. Now, can you guess where the daily sacrifice happens in this age? That's right, the temple which is our bodies. According to 1 Peter 2:5, "You also, as living stones, are being built up as a spiritual house for a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ." And Paul said in Romans 12:1, "Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship." Do you see it? WE ARE THE DAILY SACRIFICE! We who are born again in the Spirit are the daily sacrifice in the temple of our bodies. The removal of the daily sacrifice is the Rapture! When all of God's people are removed, there will be nothing left but darkness in the world, nothing but unregenerated humans separated from God and directly influenced by the spiritual forces of darkness, namely, Satan and his cohort. This is the abomination that causes desolation! 

From the time the daily sacrifice is removed and the abomination is set up, there will be about three and a half years until the end of the age, when Jesus comes as a Warrior King for the Battle of Armageddon and establishes his throne on earth for a thousand-year reign. Then will come the Sabbath rest of creation. After laboring for 6,000 years under the fall of man and dominion of Satan, creation will rest for 1,000 years under the righteous kingship of Jesus Christ.

Revelation 12:7-9 and 13-14
And there was war in heaven, Michael and his angels waging war with the dragon. The dragon and his angels waged war, and they were not strong enough, and there was no longer a place found for them in heaven. And the great dragon was thrown down, the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him...

And when the dragon saw that he was thrown down to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male child. But the two wings of the great eagle were given to the woman, so that she could fly into the wilderness to her place*, where she was nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent

* This is the Rapture! By reading all of Revelation 12, you can see the woman represents God's people or the church (ecclesia), the male child is Christ and the dragon is Satan. Long ago Satan was evicted from the third heaven where God's throne is, and today Satan occupies a lower rung of heaven. This is why he is also called prince of the power of the air. The day is coming when Satan and his fallen angels will be thrown all the way down to earth. He will then pursue God's people with a frenetic vengeance. But at that moment, the church will be given "two wings of a great eagle" and fly away. This is The Rapture!

Times, time and half a time is poetic way of saying three and a half years, which is the duration of Satan's one-world beast government. At the end of this time, the saints in heaven will return, riding in Jesus' army on the day of the Lord for the Battle of Armageddon. But don't worry, you will have supernatural immortal bodies for this battle! More on this later.

This Is The Rapture!

What is The Rapture?

Imagine you are inside a burning building with no way of escape. Smoke and flames are encroaching. A firefighter breaks through a door, hands you an oxygen mask and carries you out to safety. This is a rapture.

Imagine you are Noah or one of his sons or daughters in law standing inside the completed ark. God closes and seals the door. The rains begin to fall in torrents and the flood waters rise. Every person on earth drowns except you and your family, who are safe inside the ark. This is a rapture.

Imagine you are an Israelite fleeing Egypt and find yourself trapped between the Red Sea on one side and Pharaoh's vengeful army on the other. Between the proverbial rock and a hard place. The hand of Almighty God parts and holds back the waters and forms a dry path to cross to the other side. The pursuing army follows behind, but the waters collapse and drown them. You emerge safe on the other side. This is a rapture!

Now imagine darkness falls over the planet as events march relentlessly toward a satanic one-world government and one-world religion led by the antichrist, a.k.a. the beast, and the false prophet, both of whom are controlled by Lucifer himself. The devil knows his time is short and will hold nothing back as he pours out deception, hatred, suffering and death on humanity. Economic collapse, food shortages and plagues accelerate. Hordes of Islamic jihadists are on a rampage of murder and rape. As World War III begins and all hell breaks loose, Jesus Christ appears in the sky with his angelic host. Everyone who belongs to Jesus is caught up in the air with him, given a new immortal body and spirited away to a wedding feast the likes of which you cannot imagine. Because it is so good! This is THE RAPTURE!

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND you watch this one-hour video by Jonathan Kleck about the rapture and end times. It will blow your mind and quicken your soul. You will see truths in Scripture that have been sealed up since the time of Daniel until now:

The Rapture is a deliverance, a rescue before the fire. We now live in the time period where this event is imminent. I don't know if it is today or three, six or 12 months from now, but it is imminent. Jesus is coming quickly! If you are not already born again in the Spirit, you need to repent and believe. "And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved." (Acts 2:21)

Because you don't want to be on earth after the Rapture. The wrath of God will be poured out. It will be the culmination of Satan's mayhem on earth. It will be three and half years of cataclysm unlike anything that has ever happened in history or ever will. Jesus said if those days were not cut short, no one would be left alive. 

There's only one way out, and that's to believe in Jesus right now.

By the way, the Rapture does not deliver you out of all tribulation, but the worst of it. We have entered the time period when the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse are mounting and beginning to ride, as detailed in Revelation 6 (more on this later). People living in the Middle East, Ukraine or Nigeria are already experiencing conquest (white horse), war and violence (red horse), privation & famine (black horse), and death (pale horse). Christians by the tens of thousands are being slaughtered and enslaved. Please pray for them and donate to good charities that help them if you can, like Operation Do Something and Rescue Christians. But I want to be clear: The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse are coming to America soon. You need to be ready to deal with war, death, plagues, food shortages and privation, while at the same time holding out the hope that Jesus is coming imminently.

Wake Up, You Live in The Matrix #3 - President Obama

At the National Prayer Breakfast today, President Barack Obama proclaimed, "People committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ.” See this article from Breitbart:

I would like pass on a few things that I believe pertain to this man.

"Then the king will do as he pleases, and he will exalt and magnify himself above every god and will speak monstrous things against the God of gods; and he will prosper until the indignation is finished, for that which is decreed will be done." - Daniel 11:36

Jonathan Kleck, who claims to be a harbinger of the Lord, gave this prophetic utterance in 2008 before Obama was elected the first time:

"Behold the man of peace shall come forth from the sea
Barack Hussein Obama and with words of peace he will bring chaos and destruction.
Behold the fig tree.
It puts forth its leaves and suddenly the time is before you."

A few video shorts from Kleck about Obama:

Finally I will leave you with Psalm 91 verses 1-10:

"He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
Will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress,
My God, in whom I trust!”
For it is He who delivers you from the snare of the trapper
And from the deadly pestilence.
He will cover you with His pinions,
And under His wings you may seek refuge;
His faithfulness is a shield and bulwark.
You will not be afraid of the terror by night,
Or of the arrow that flies by day;
Of the pestilence that stalks in darkness,
Or of the destruction that lays waste at noon.
A thousand may fall at your side
And ten thousand at your right hand,
But it shall not approach you.
You will only look on with your eyes
And see the recompense of the wicked.
For you have made the Lord, my refuge,
Even the Most High, your dwelling place.
No evil will befall you,
Nor will any plague come near your tent."

Wake Up, You Live in The Matrix #2 - The Economic End Game

According to a recent Gallup poll, nearly half of Americans believe 2015 will be more prosperous than 2014. Only 10% believe it will be worse:

This means only 10% of Americans have any idea of what is happening in this country and the world. Why? The #1 culprit is the hypnotic, flickering, brainwashing box in the living room of nearly every American. Watch the Conan O'Brien segment at the end of the article above and you will see how centrally created propaganda is fed to every local community in the nation. Six mega corporations control 98% of media outlets in the US:

We live in a propagandist's dream world. When catastrophe strikes, most Americans will not believe it is happening until it is too late to save even themselves.

If you want to know where things really stand economically, I recommend listening to this interview entitled "The Economic Endgame has Arrived" by one of my favorite economists, Dr. Jim Willie:

Here is another, more recent Jim Willie interview, "The Quickening":

We are in the end game, but it's not just economic. We're on the doorstep of the End of the Age. More on this to come.

"Now learn the parable from the fig tree: when its branch has already become tender and puts forth its leaves, you know that summer is near; so, you too, when you see all these things, recognize that He is near, right at the door. Truly I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass away." - Matthew 24:32-34

"The prudent see danger and take refuge, but the simple keep going and pay the penalty." - Proverbs 22:3 

See the next post in this series, President Obama.
