Flee To The Mountains is not a work of fiction. It’s not a novel. It’s not a theory. It’s real, and it’s coming. What is our responsibility to Israel? Written by Pastor Christopher Mantei with contributions from Joel Richardson (Islamic Antichrist, Mideast Beast, Mystery Babylon), Pastor Jake McCandless (Spiritual Prepper), Fred London and Pastor Israel Pochtar. The Church needs to digest this message, and soon. 

Just 30 days left to register for Understanding The Times!

As believers in Jesus Christ, many of us feel that the return of Jesus is not far off. However, the subject of His return and spiritual preparation for the times ahead are rarely discussed anymore among our churches. Jesus spent a considerable amount of teaching time teaching about specific preparation needed for the time of the end of the age. In fact, He commanded believers to keep watch for the signs of His return.

With this end in mind, we have invited an amazing group of international Christian writers and speakers to address the topic of the biblical “end of the age,” how Israel and Israel’s neighbors (Islam) fit into this scenario, how we as believers should be preparing ourselves and our families spiritually, and most importantly, how this affects the way we disseminate the Gospel.

The Texas conference 2017 drew 850 participants from 17 states and three continents. The upcoming conference is expected to draw close to 1000 people from all over the world. This is a multi-denominational event (no one church is sponsoring the event) and is an effort by local believers to focus our attention on the coming Kingdom of Jesus Christ. The highlight of these conferences is hearing the true stories of how God is working in the Middle East and Israel to draw more people into the Kingdom of God.

This two-day conference will host some of the world’s leading writers and teachers on end times and the Middle East.

The Five-Fold Purpose Of This Conference Is To:

  • Draw attention to the eternal Abrahamic Covenant of God regarding Mount Zion, Israel, and the eventual restoration of the Jewish people.
  • Encourage believers to learn more about the persecution of Christians in the Middle East today and listen to reports from workers on the ground in Islamic countries regarding the massive revivals taking place.
  • Compare and contrast the Islamic end-time mindset to the spirit of antichrist in order to warn believers of deception.
  • Work through scriptures that instruct believers how to respond in order to regard end time events with Biblical hope rather than fear.
  • Learn how we, as believers, can pray for those being persecuted.

Massacre of Muslims vs Martyrdom of Christians

The world – rightly – knows all about the heinous attack on innocent Muslims praying in their Mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand 2 weeks ago. Though the head of one of the Mosques now blames “the Mossad” (Jewish secret agents), the guilty man was an anti-immigrant Nationalist. He – like so many others in the west – are drawing the faulty connection between immigration and Islam. There is no justification for acts like this, it is not understandable or excusable in any way, shape or form. Frankly, this attack is what happens when there is no CHRIST and no CHURCH to keep the evil of man at bay. I say this as a conservative “right wing” gun owning Christian Pastor who loves my country, hates injustice and believes Islam is literally Satan’s religion. Hear this loud and clear: anti-Muslim, anti-immigration nationalism IS NOT OK. It’s not part of Christianity, it takes the place of Jesus and the Church. It is idolatry!

The Muslim is just as loved by God as you were in your sin. Give them the Gospel – most have NEVER HEARD IT. That is our duty as Christians, not to oppose them or fight them or hate them. By all means, be bold and snatch them from the fire (Jude 1:23)! By all means, pray fervently in the Spirit for their bonds to be loosed, for strongholds to be broken, for lies to be exposed, that they would encounter Jesus Himself in a dream or vision! BUT that does not remove our responsibility in the equation. To preach the Gospel to ALL who God puts in your path, even if it means your suffering or even death.

Now there is a parallel massacre that the world is NOT being told about. Nigerian Christians are being slaughtered – a death toll much higher than in the New Zealand attack. We should know why, it doesn’t fit the “Christians are hateful, Islam is a religion peace” narrative our leaders (including the Powers and Principalities of the air) foist on us daily. Truth be told, nobody much cares about African Christians. Ever. After many years, the plight of Middle Eastern Christians is finally getting attention, and there is some exposure of China’s Christians and what they are facing. But all told, per OpenDoorsUSA, every month simply because of their faith:

  • 255 Christians are killed
  • 104 are abducted
  • 180 Christian women are raped, sexually harassed or forced into marriage
  • 66 churches are attacked
  • 160 Christians are detained without trial and imprisoned

Last year ALONE:

  • 3,066 Christians were killed; 1,252 were abducted; 1,020 were raped or sexually harassed; and 793 churches were attacked.
  • Islamic Oppression fuels Christian persecution in 8 of the top 10 countries.

So now hopefully we see that we are ONE body in Christ? That when one suffers we are all supposed to suffer? And yes we know the devil doesn’t play fair! Never has, never will. So why do we expect “fair news coverage”?! Expect unfairness, malice, false accusation, all the things your Lord TOLD YOU to expect. Also as He commands, let us love our enemies, and pray for those who persecute us. That we may have the chance to give them the Gospel and save them from the fires of hell – the very same love of God that saved us from the same fate.

Reverse Engineering the Beast – Daniel 7 as an End Time vision

dan 7

 

Reverse Engineering: “disassemble or analyze in detail in order to discover concepts involved in manufacture.” – The Merriam-Webster Dictionary

First things first, when I say “the Beast” here I mean the Kingdom/government that will soon form and make then break peace with Israel. We know this from the detailed descriptions of it in the book of Revelation chapters 13 and 17. Let’s cut to the chase and state for the record this Beast is NOT a revived Roman Empire as so many have erroneously believed. Joel Richardson’s seminal work “Mideast Beast” is a Scriptural smackdown on the Roman theory and simply points out what has been in the Bible all along. The Beast to come is a thoroughly Middle Eastern kingdom and not only that, but one that has been there before and is on the rise from the abyss as we speak: the Islamic Caliphate.

So the premise is this: if the Beast is a Middle Eastern Kingdom (specifically an Islamic Caliphate), how can we use that information to interpret (or reinterpret) the vision of the book of Daniel chapter 7? Why Daniel 7? Because we are driven headlong into it by the description of the Beast itself. Why in the world are we told the Beast is made up of a Lion, a Bear and a Leopard? Needless to say, it is apparently critical information to understand if we are to recognize what God is going to allow before His Son returns to judge and make war. And maybe, just maybe, we can be shown – and then show others – the Beast BEFORE it fully rises to help prepare the Church and win new souls to the Kingdom for the final battle.

So we have the full picture of the Middle Eastern Islamic Caliphate Beast in Revelation, let’s “reverse engineer” it: disassemble it into its component parts and analyze them to see what happens. Daniel 7 does just that. (Mark Davidson has done this at length in his work “Daniel Revisited”, I recommend further reading there).  Here is the short version:

The prophet Daniel is shown a vision during the reign of Babylonian king Belshazzar – the son of famous Nebuchadnezzar. This is an important detail as we will soon discover.

*Note that ALL of the visions in Daniel keep mentioning these 3 Kingdoms: Babylon, Persia and Javan (translated Greece in your Bible, Turkey in reality).

He sees the Great Sea (the Mediterranean, Numbers 34:6 etc) whipped up by the “four winds of heaven” and four great beasts come out from it. This parallels the language of Rev. 13:1 and adds in a detail from Rev. 7:1 – in other words, it’s both a geographic marker (the Middle East) and an “End Time” one (the Tribulation can’t begin until these 4 rise).

The first beast that rises is the Lion. This is the geographic location of Babylon. However we must understand it is NOT a retelling of Daniel 2 and the Babylon of King Nebuchadnezzar (“O king, you are this head of gold”) – for he had already died when this vision is given. What I believe is a huge clue as we reverse-engineer is this fact: the Lion is an END TIME entity only. And since it’s the first of the four to rise, all the other beasts must be end time kingdoms as well. This completely comports with Rev. 13. Now here’s the thing: if the Beast is a middle eastern Islamic Caliphate that is made up of these smaller component parts, doesn’t it stand to reason that all of the parts are part of the Islamic Caliphate? Or even…since they rise in sequence…a SERIES of Islamic Caliphates that culminate in the final united Beast? If you have followed Wings Of The Eagle’s teachings on this Lion, you know we believe it is ISIS – the resurrected Caliphate in the lands of Babylon – that has fulfilled the Lion Kingdom of this prophecy. The 2 wings being plucked could well be their dual capitals of Raqqa and Mosul being taken away. Look at a a map and Iraq and Syria even appear as 2 wings (at least to me).
*What the Lion is NOT: America

The second beast that rises is the Bear. This is the geographic location of Persia. Persia quite simply is Iran. It doesn’t take a theologian to see that there is a burgeoning Caliphate in Iran (they could call it an “Imamate”) just waiting for the right time to invade its neighbors. Maybe they are waiting to declare the 12th Imam has returned or that the ISIS or Kurdish situation must be addressed, but they are coming next – and soon!
*What the Bear is NOT: Russia

The third beast that rises is the Leopard. This the geographic location of Javan. Your english Bible says “Greece” but that’s just not accurate. Anyone who has paid attention the past few years to the Middle East has seen the emergence of an Islamist nation with an angry dictator at the helm itching to recapture old Caliphate glory. That nation is Turkey, that leader is Erdogan and that Caliphate was the Ottoman Empire. Once the Bear stakes its claim, the Leopard will move in and control the entire region.
*What the Leopard is NOT: Germany/other crazy non-scriptural concoctions

So can we now see more clearly why the Beast is made up of body of the Leopard (Turkish Caliphate), with the mouth of the Lion (Iraq/Syria) and feet of the Bear (Iran)? It is quite simply a pan-Islamic Caliphate that unites after a series of wars between them for legitimacy. For all of these reasons, I don’t see how Daniel 7 can be anything BUT an End Time vision; one that the Church needs to understand and teach ASAP…

~ Christopher

**Note on Daniel 8: I did not address it in this post, but the similar features of of the Bear and chapter 8’s Ram as well as the Leopard and chapter 8’s Goat are not coincidental. It’s a close up view of the coming Iran-Turkey war. And the same order of events is presented: Iran, then Turkey, then split of Middle East into 4, then little horn rises out of the north, then 10 kings unite.

Time in the Wilderness

“If God sends us on stony paths, he provides strong shoes.” Corrie Ten Boom

An increasing experience of those who love to see His appearing (c/f 2 Timothy 4:7-9) seems to coincide with ‘wilderness time’. ‘Wilderness’ is not an American dream of ‘beans & bunkers or bullets’ in the forests of Oregon & Washington State. Nor is it wild land beyond the frontier…land that shaped the growth of the American nation and the character of its people.

Biblically the wilderness is a location for intense experiences—of stark need for food and water (manna and quails), of isolation (Elijah and the still small voice), of danger and divine deliverance (Hagar and Ishmael), of renewal, of encounters with God (Moses, the burning bush, the revelation of the divine name, Mount Sinai). There is a psychology as well as a geography of wilderness, a theology gained in the wilderness. There is also the prophetic experience of ‘being outside the camp’; either voluntarily or involuntarily.

Do you find yourself in a Spiritual Wilderness?

WELCOME to Endtime.Church

  • We are here because countless Christians are greatly concerned by the lack of Biblical teaching and preparation for the end times, and general ignorance in our churches about the restoration of Israel, the reality of Islam, and Christian persecution.
  • We are here to provide a church for those who are under threat and cannot meet safely, or have no local congregation to gather with other Believers.
  • We are here to strengthen and encourage Pastors who hear the Spirit calling them to lead their flock though the coming storm. Are you currently seeking a church that embraces those concerns and meets those needs?

YOU ARE NOT ALONE!

Jesus Said:
“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”  Matthew 28:19-20

We also are those who love to see His appearing: we are here for you!


Throughout all those years when Moses tended the flocks in the desolate land of Midian, he surely must have wrestled with what God had shown him. It must have seemed so very far away and totally impossible. In our own desert experience, we are confronted with the same struggle. And when the vision for our life seems so painfully distant, we can feel a gamut of drastically different emotions, such as:

  • Hopeful anticipation.
  • Disheartening discouragement.
  • Unspeakable joy at the thought of our destiny being fulfilled someday.
  • The temptation to just forget the whole thing and wish we had never embraced the God inspired dream in the first place.

While we are hidden away and it seems that what we have to often is invisible to people, God shapes us, changes us, humbles us and molds us into a “vessel for honor” (2 Timothy 2:21 NASB) until we are finally ready for Him to use. When we emerge from these years of waiting, we are not the same person who began that journey. Mistaken attitudes and personal agendas die in the desert where we come to the end of ourselves. If we have allowed the Father to reshape and change us, we finally are convinced that whatever we do for Him can never be about us again.

(From The Back Side of the Desert, Ruth Johnson)

Preparing for the Tribulation, Part 3: (Re)Establishing the Passover prayer vigil

“This is our part of the template now, Elijah, this is the revelation.  That time of wavering is over. The time of being a gray Christian is over.  The time of compromise is over. The time of making deals with the darkness is over.  The revelation is these are the days of Elijah. We must become the Elijahs of the day. We are to be single-minded, unafraid to stand up against the darkness.  God is real. God wants us confident. God wants us with conviction. God wants us to go all out or don’t go at all.” – Jonathan Cahn

 

On January 30th 2018, my dear friend Nelson Walters released a blog entry called “How to watch and pray in the end times” (read it HERE). It was the inspiration for this entire 3 part series on Preparation for the Tribulation. In Part 1 we asked, “what if we only have 4 years to prepare”? And in Part 2 we examined the convergence of several prophetic leaders all pointing to 2020 as a Paradigm altering year. If the final 7 years of this age are slated to begin in 2020 or even 2023, I daresay we as the Church are not prepared NEARLY enough. We must become purposeful as our Lord Yeshua was (and is).

As Nelson points out, the word Gethsemane means “olive press”. In other words, the place where the oil was made. It is very interesting to me that the central lesson of the Parable of the 10 Virgins (the end time Church) is having enough oil to last until He comes. Isn’t it also interesting that the word Tribulation (thlipsis) means “a pressing, pressing together, pressure”. So in a very real, literal way, the Great Tribulation is the Great Pressing when the command of Jesus to “watch and pray” for His Return will be no easy task.

This all circles back to Exodus 12 and the original Passover; the 4 days of preparation etc. I completely agree with Nelson when he says “it is an awesome opportunity for churches and small groups to get together and “watch and pray” as part of their ongoing preparation for the tribulation to come. If we do this, it will be a wonderful reminder to us of how to watch.”

The need I feel – and many others do as well – is to TRAIN. So many are coming to me lately asking “How exactly to I prepare?”. Not just new believers, but seasoned missionaries who have dedicated their lives to building the Church in the darkest of nations. The Father is doing something mighty in these days my friend.

But you, dear friends, must build each other up in your most holy faith, pray in the power of the Holy Spirit, and await the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ, who will bring you eternal life. In this way, you will keep yourselves safe in God’s love.

Jude 1:20-21 NLT

Blessed be Jehovah my Rock, who trains my hands for war, and my fingers for battle…

Psalm 144:1 NJKV

Let us stand in agreement, as the Church throughout the world, as we contemplate what will come upon us: upon you, your family, and the world, and how you might prepare for persecution, starvation, and martyrdom.

ACTION ITEM

On Friday, March 30th, 2018, I will be using my usual Bible Study time at my local congregation (IronFaithFellowship.org) to host a Passover prayer/watch vigil from 8pm-midnight (and longer if anyone is so led). Nelson will be doing the same in North Carolina. Will you do this as well? This will require you to step out and Lead your small group, your local congregation or even just your home. If you will join us, can you send me an email at christopher@wingsoftheeagle.com? I will be posting a Facebook Event as well as a YouTube video so feel free to share them as a rallying point.

Like Elijah, we must become dedicated to prayer and preparation for fleshly suffering and then watch the glorious Hand of God work in these End Times. Our God has told us all we need to know:

“Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.”

– Jesus, Mark 14:38

Preparing for the Tribulation,Part 2: The 2020 Paradigm

The 2020 Paradigm- Biblical and modern day Prophets align?

 

This is something we very rarely – if ever – have done at Wings Of The Eagle: refer to extra-Biblical sources. The reason for this is our belief that God still speaks to His people today (yes that means new covenant prophets, see Acts 21:10) and that per Amos 3:7, He will always inform His servants the prophets of His plans. We have all seen what immature and false prophets look like in the Church, but that does not mean we go to the other extreme and dismiss the reality of how God works. We know that God will NEVER contradict His Written Word when speaking to us, so always test a prophetic word. With that understanding, what I want to present to you today are 3 examples of mature Christian leaders who by all accounts have heard from the Lord and through them a picture is emerging of a time period we are are in – right now. In PART 1 we asked “What if we only have 4 years to prepare” – now we will see if there is alignment with Biblical and modern day prophets around the year 2020 and around a fixed point: Donald Trump.

 

Example #1. John Paul Jackson

Mr. Jackson died in February 2015 but had become very well known for his proven prophetic voice and Biblical dream interpretation. In 2008, he released a long-form prophecy called “The Perfect Storm”; he said it is specifically about events that would occur between the years of 2010-2020. Watch it here: https://youtu.be/BLsJn3ERPAo

Aside from the several things in it that have already come to pass, here are the parts to focus on now:
– There will be a “Bubble of hope” in the USA, but it will be short lived. This is to give enough time for Godly people to prepare financially. (That seems very much to be the current condition since Donald Trump was elected.)

– Most US troops brought home. (Trump desire)

– Most International aid cut. (Beginning now)

Then in 2013, there was a dream interpreted by John Paul on Daystar television. Immediately he said it is about Last Days: it is a bulldozer coming to crash through Obama White House ushering in “Refreshing of America”. Watch it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xgp1S3obQ_4

NOBODY in 2013 thought Donald Trump would EVER become President of the United States, but there is no question he could be described as a bulldozer – wild and destructive, but sent to the White House for a specific purpose, to knock things down. Taken in concert with his previous prophecy, this “refreshing bubble of hope” is to be short-lived and will end by 2020. The last year of Donald Trump’s term is 2020.


Example #2. Loren Sandford

Loren Sandford is from a well known prophetic family and has been an author and pastor for many years and currently pastors a church in Denver, Colorado. He is NOT known for flowery feel good messages. I interviewed Mr. Sandford for Wings Of The Eagle in June, 2016. Five months later, after the Presidential election, he received a vision from God: The “4 sticks” prophecy. The first 3 years of the Trump presidency, there would be prosperity/a window of opportunity, then in the 4th year it will begin to fall. This is now specific to time: 2017-2019 = 3 years of prosperity to prepare, some time in 2020 = the fall. This fall is likely speaking just about the USA and our economy, but it may be wider than that as all world economies are now intimately linked. In Loren’s words, the Church has “4 years to shine”. If taken literally, we are looking at a 3-4 year window then great shaking internationally.

Then four months later, he received more details. In March 2017 he said there are “2 Storms Coming”. During this time of 2 Storms (one Holy Spirit refreshing the other great shaking of the nations), places of Refuge begin to be built. This speaks to preparation time for God’s people during this 3-4 year window. (watch him describe both prophecies here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BHD3IT4VZzQ)


Example #3. Jonathan Cahn

Most American Christians know who Messianic Rabbi Jonathan Cahn is or at least know of his books. “The Harbinger” exploded onto the scene in 2012 and catapulted Cahn into the spotlight and has led to him addressing the powerful and elected officials in Congress directly (in public and private) and even Presidents; praying publicly for repentance in the most historically significant locations. If you haven’t read it, that book presents extremely convincing evidence of a “pattern” played out on September 11, 2001 when satanic terrorism struck America to the core. (Now I know many Christians are skeptical of that work and Cahn himself. Let me just tell you I have driven Jonathan around in my car, I have been to his church, and we had great, deep conversations – the Brother is 100% genuine and has a servant’s heart and is a “regular dude” – no pretensions, he is just relating what he has seen.)

God was not done however, and in 2016 another pattern emerged tied to the Harbinger – Cahn calls it “The Paradigm”. Using the template of Elijah/Ahab/Jezebel/Jehu/Elisha from 1 and 2 Kings, AMAZING parallels are revealed, even down to specific dates – there are far too many to write about now, but I highly encourage you to at least watch Cahn detail it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZMdWvbnuUOc

Basically, there is a “Paradigm” showing the forerunners of Bill and Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and Donald Trump in the Jezebel story. Wild Warrior Jehu (Trump) defeats Jezebel (Hillary) but the chaos he brings leaves uncertain results. Of course Trump did defeat Hillary in the 2016 election to the shock of the world, and as previously noted, the last year of Trump’s term is 2020. As with the eerily specific details in the signs of “The Harbinger”, this cannot be ignored in my view.

 


 

So now we have 3 different types of prophetic words given to 3 different mature Christian leaders at 3 different times that all seem to point to the exact same events. Some of it has come to pass, some not yet. But all 3 point to our current 4 year time period: 2017-2020.

As I said in PART 1 and repeat again here: we don’t endorse date setting and we rely on the Bible ALONE for God’s sure and certain prophetic word. That said, our eyes do need to be open, right? We have seen the “pattern” of Exodus 12 and Matthew 25 and Genesis 37 and even 2 Kings 9, but there is one more bit of Scriptural evidence we should consider if we are to prepare for Daniel’s 70th Week and the Tribulation:


Hosea 6:1-3

1 Come, and let us return to the LORD; ​​For He has torn, but He will heal us; ​​He has stricken, but He will bind us up. 2 ​​After two days He will revive us; On the third day He will raise us up, That we may live in His sight. 3 ​​Let us know, Let us pursue the knowledge of the LORD. His going forth is established as the morning; He will come to us like the rain, ​​Like the latter and former rain to the earth.

This is a passage I have thought about for over 20 years – it seems almost “too good to be true” – just so obvious, it can’t be a time-specific prophecy right?? Some other mature and sober teachers like Tim Warner and Reggie Kelly have starting bringing this up the past few years, but this past year – especially while in Israel talking with a dear Brother from England who happens to be a messianic Jew – this came up again and it may in fact be just what it looks like…so let’s sketch it out:

The context is physical Israel rejecting then returning to Messiah, ending with a resurrection at  the 2nd Coming. So IF 1 day is as 1,000 years with God:

Jesus crucified/resurrected in 30AD. Daniel’s 69th Week ends. Kingdom opens to Gentiles.

2 “days” = 2,000 years until Israel accepts Messiah and her people resurrected.
2,000 years from 30AD = 2030 (from His resurrection until theirs/ours)
Daniel’s 70th week would then have to be the 7 year period of 2023-2030.

*AGAIN WE DO NOT ENDORSE DATE SETTING – this is just looking at the possibility and the ramifications of it!

Something “earthly” to consider. Dictator of Turkey, Recep Erdogan has for years touted his “2023 plan” for 100th anniversary of Ottoman Caliphate abolition. In recent days he and many other pro-Caliphate government officials are openly calling for the re-establishment of the Caliphate under Turkish rule to finally bring peace to the Middle East.

So what does this all add up to?

  1. A 4 year period of time of preparation confirmed by multiple modern day prophetic words coinciding with the Trump presidency ending in the year 2020.
  2. Per this reading of Hosea 6, the final 7 years of this age are 2023-2030.
  3. Anti-Christ, Anti-Israel forces intentionally targeting 2023 for a Middle East “peace deal”.

 

Scenario 1:

Our 4 years of preparation for the Tribulation are 2017-2020. We have approximately 2.5 years left to prepare for what is coming. The final 7 years can begin anytime after that.

 

Scenario 2:

The time of preparation more closely follows Joseph’s story and 2017-2023 are the “7 years of plenty”, then 2023-2030 is the “7 years of famine” IE Daniel’s 70th week with the official establishment of the Turkish-run Caliphate – this is the Beast kingdom who makes peace with Israel and then breaks it in 2026.

 

Scenario 3:

Both scenarios 1 and 2 are essentially correct. Our 4 years of preparation are 2017-2020. Economies/nations start to fall in 2020 (but Church who prepared is provided for) paving the way for the official establishment of the Turkish-run Caliphate 3 years later in 2023. This Caliphate is the Beast kingdom who makes peace with Israel and then breaks it in 2026.

 

Or, none of this means anything and we just continue to watch. Will you who are reading this join me in prayer about this possibility we have laid out??

Meditate on this: As of today, March 5, 2018:
What if you KNEW we only had 2.5 years left to prepare spiritually (and maybe economically)…or what if you KNEW we only had 5 years until Daniel’s 70th week begins…

So if we are truly at the doors, what shall we do NOW? Like RIGHT NOW, LIKE MARCH 2018? In Part 3, we will examine the possibility that the Lord Jesus already told us what this step is. Would you participate in a Passover prayer vigil?

Preparation for the Tribulation, Part 1: What if we only have 4 years to prepare? Exodus 12 and the 10 Virgins

What if we only have 4 years to prepare? Exodus 12 and the 10 Virgins

As Christians, especially ones who have a deep love and respect for Bible Prophecy, we can’t wait for Daniel’s 70th week to start, right?!? Until you start to think, what if it IS very near…I’m not ready for all that will be required. That’s how I feel at least. NOTE: I do NOT endorse date setting and am not trying to do that now. What God may have laid out however, is a “template” that His timing will follow. I was going thru Exodus 12 recently and when seen from that view, some things jumped off the page. Seek the Holy Spirit on this and perhaps you will agree:

 

Exodus 12

“Speak to all the congregation of Israel, saying: ‘On the tenth of this month every man shall take for himself a lamb, according to the house of his father, a lamb for a household…Now you shall keep it until the fourteenth day of the same month. Then the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it at twilight.

This is a detail I have skipped over many times. Why the 4 day delay? “Preparation time”?


And thus you shall eat it: with a belt on your waist, your sandals on your feet, and your staff in your hand. So you shall eat it in haste. It is the LORD’s Passover.

So the people were told to “eat it in haste” and to be fully dressed and ready to leave, even their staff (walking stick) in their hands as they ate the Passover. God was telling them don’t get complacent, BE READY TO MARCH.


‘Now the blood shall be a sign for you on the houses where you are. And when I see the blood, I will pass over you; and the plague shall not be on you to destroy you when I strike the land of Egypt.

Of course this points to Jesus, Messiah our Passover sacrificed for us (1Cor. 5:7) – the only way to be delivered from sin and death. Hallelujah! But in the end time template, something is about to happen after this 4th day and Christians had better be ready.


‘Seven days you shall eat unleavened bread. On the first day you shall remove leaven from your houses. For whoever eats leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day, that person shall be cut off from Israel.

There is now a 7 day period during which leaven must be completely removed otherwise you die. Leaven is defined in the New Testament as Hypocrisy (Matt. 16, Mark 8, Luke 12) and Sin (1Cor. 5, Gal. 5). So there is a period of “7” where the Church must be blameless and holy…


And it came to pass at midnight that the LORD struck all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh who sat on his throne to the firstborn of the captive who was in the dungeon, and all the firstborn of livestock. Then he called for Moses and Aaron by night, and said, “Rise, go out from among my people, both you and the children of Israel. And go, serve the LORD as you have said.


At midnight the cries began. Then immediately – GET UP AND GO OUT.

And they baked unleavened cakes of the dough which they had brought out of Egypt; for it was not leavened, because they were driven out of Egypt and could not wait, nor had they prepared provisions for themselves.

On top of the spiritual implications of leaven, what if all the fleshly provisions attempted outside of what God instructs will not matter. What if He takes your entire “prepper bunker” away – will your faith endure?

Now here’s where the connection is…

Matthew 25:1-12

Then the kingdom of heaven shall be likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. Now five of them were wise, and five were foolish. Those who were foolish took their lamps and took no oil with them, but the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.  But while the bridegroom was delayed, they all slumbered and slept. And at midnight a cry was heard: ‘Behold, the bridegroom is coming; go out to meet him!’ Then all those virgins arose and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’ But the wise answered, saying, ‘No, lest there should not be enough for us and you; but go rather to those who sell, and buy for yourselves.’ And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding; and the door was shut. Afterward the other virgins came also, saying, ‘Lord, Lord, open to us!’  But he answered and said, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, I do not know you.’

Virgins having lamp with enough oil = Christians dressed and ready to go out immediately into “the 7”.  Notice there is more work to be done. The Bridegroom doesn’t show up to THEIR door, they have to go out and GET somewhere – they need their lamps to SEE WHERE THEY ARE GOING! One final journey, but His coming is now a certainty, it can be delayed no longer.

Conversely, this means the virgins without enough oil are Christians who are NOT prepared for the journey. Belief in Jesus isn’t the issue, it seems to be obedience/holiness. Being dressed with enough oil in your lamp is echoed in another place…

Luke 12:35-48

Let your waist be girded and your lamps burning; and you yourselves be like men who wait for their master, when he will return from the wedding, that when he comes and knocks they may open to him immediately. Blessed are those servants whom the master, when he comes, will find watching. Assuredly, I say to you that he will gird himself and have them sit down to eat, and will come and serve them. And if he should come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants. But know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into. Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect…

Ready to go, yet waiting…2nd watch ends at Midnight, the 3rd watch starts at midnight…

Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom his master will make ruler over his household, to give them their portion of food in due season? Blessed is that servant whom his master will find so doing when he comes. Truly, I say to you that he will make him ruler over all that he has.

See the story of Joseph beginning in Genesis 37. Joseph was the faithful and wise steward – the whole reason Israel was in Egypt in the first place – he saved 2 nations by having enough food for the great 7 year Famine. Is the Church expected to be watching AND preparing to face the final 7 years at the same time? Seems so…

But if that servant says in his heart, ‘My master is delaying his coming,’ and begins to beat the male and female servants, and to eat and drink and be drunk, the master of that servant will come on a day when he is not looking for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in two and appoint him his portion with the unbelievers. And that servant who knew his master’s will, and did not prepare himself or do according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. But he who did not know, yet committed things deserving of stripes, shall be beaten with few. For everyone to whom much is given, from him much will be required; and to whom much has been committed, of him they will ask the more.

The crux of the matter: the return of the Master, Jesus. Some Christians will get angry and think He is delaying too long, their hearts will grow cold, and they will abuse their fellow Christians. This has begun, has it not? “Prepare himself to do his Master’s Will…”

Verse 56:  Hypocrites! You can discern the face of the sky and of the earth, but how is it you do not discern this time?

So taking Exodus 12 in conjunction with the parable of the 10 Virgins, is God trying to tell us something very specific about where we are and what is expected of His Bride? Will those who are watching now get a 4 year preparation period to last the final 7? If so, when will it begin…or maybe it has already?

***UPDATE 3/29/18

Joshua 4-6 is another witness to this time frame!

Israel entered the Promised Land 4 days before Passover.

During those 4 days, the men were circumsized and they healed. (Rom. 2:29 – heart/Spirit)

Then Passover – the manna immediaetly stopped (no more provisions) and they rose to March – with the Commander of the Army of the Lord leading.

Then a 7 day period where the men of War obeyed the Word of God. 7 Trumpets were sounded.

At the end of the 7 days, at the 7th Trumpet, deliverance and victory

 

In Part 2, we will look at what seems like several further confirmations. Are we approaching “The 2020 Paradigm”?

(see part 3 here)

 

What Is the Lamp & Oil?

Ever wonder or heard a question in Church/Sunday School/Small groups about what exactly was meant by the “oil” and “lamp” in the Parable of the Ten Virgins? Let’s find out.

The Psalms & Parable of the Ten Virgins

As I was re-listening to the “End Times for Beginner’s” course teaching that covered the Parable of the Ten Virgins, followed by listening to a sermon shared by a fellow brother in Christ, I was reminded of the passage in Psalm 119:105-106. But first, I’d like to share the passage from Matthew 25 about the parable…
I won’t go into a verse-by-verse breakdown, but I want to focus on verse 3: “3 Those who were foolish took their lamps and took no oil with them,…”
Now with this verse in mind, pay attention to what Psalm 119:105-106 says: “105 Your word is a lamp for my feet; a light on my path. 106 I have taken an oath and confirmed it, that I will follow your righteous laws.” (NIV)
In this parable, the context is the “last days” or “end times” when Jesus’ second coming is nigh. Now, I have no disagreement that the oil here is the Holy Spirit. I also believe that it implies “understanding”. Let me explain:
If God’s Word is a lamp unto our feet and that lights our path, then “lamp” in the Parable of the The Virgins also indicates the Word of God. 
The Holy Spirit, when we read the Word of God, supplies us with wisdom, knowledge, and understanding of the scriptures. 
Don't forget, as well, earlier in Psalm 119:11 "I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you." 
Without oil, there is nothing to ignite the flame of the lamp. Without oil, there is no light to see things clearly which leads to understanding. There will be those who have the Word of God in their hearts, but will lack understanding. Without understanding, this will lead ultimately to sinning against God. However, there will be those who have hidden the Word of God in their hearts WITH understanding which will lead to unwavering faith, even unto death.

Conclusion

The Lamp = God’s Word
The Oil = Understanding (Holy Spirit from which understanding of God’s Word comes from)
I’ll leave you with this:
The foolish virgins are believers that waited until the last minute - the unexpected set of events & return of Jesus - to go and “buy” or “acquire” understanding. Isn’t it a characteristic of today’s society, yes even today’s self-professed-Christians to only seek understanding when crisis hits them? 
The wise virgins, though this passage says they also sleep, when they are “awoken” they will have enough of the oil (understanding of God’s Word and it being hidden in their heart) that they will be ready and will NOT sin against God when they are aroused from their slumber.
SO… SEEK! ASK! WATCH! PRAY!

A Strange Encounter With a Bear

The Bear is coming. Time for preparation is short.

THE FOUR SIGNPOSTS

This post will undoubtedly seem strange to some.

Since Christ grabbed me in 1997, I cannot count the number of times God has shown me things through physical circumstances. Either my heart will be prompted to look at something, or something will be shoved in my face, so to speak.

Thinking about the number of clues in a single circumstance and and/or the timing of what is being shown, I realize “this is a God thing” and pay special attention. The start of this ministry, for example, involved God showing me what I needed to do via a movie poster of all things.

A Question

This past Saturday morning I had been working in the garden, pulling weeds and harvesting peppers, tomatoes and zucchini. I came into rest around midday and have some water and lunch. I felt tired, so I rested on the couch and drifted in and out…

How Can One Prepare? Remember M-S-M

Prudent Biblical counsel here!

THE FOUR SIGNPOSTS

How can anyone prepare for the next three Signposts? This topic should be on our minds.

It will likely be years, if not a couple decades, between now and Jesus’ physical return to Earth. For complete material preparation one would have to store years of food and water in a mountain or desert hideaway. This is not practical, nor mentioned in the Bible.

Though I couldn’t think of a better mnemonic, just remember M-S-M, as in the Main Stream Media. The first two letters are essential for preparedness. The third can only be done in degrees.

M for Mental Preparation

Hosea 4:6 says, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.” (NASB) When Iran runs out over the Middle East, and the oil spigot is turned down or off, and the US petrodollar is no more, and oil and gasoline become very expensive, there will be…

The Second Signpost May Only Be a “Consensus” Away

We are basically on a hair trigger alert for Iran’s invasion of the Middle East to begin any time…

THE FOUR SIGNPOSTS

Our world has entered a new phase in the times leading up to the Second Signpost. I wrote about this time here. We are basically on a hair trigger alert for Iran’s invasion of the Middle East to begin any time.

It looks now like a likely path leading to the Second Signpost is first another attack (either by Iran, its minions, or a false flag operation by the west) on the oil infrastructure, second a strike on Iran by the US, third Iran’s (and perhaps Russia’s) retaliation, and then finally the Second Signpost itself.

We have seen attacks on a pumping station and a total of six oil tankers in this past month.

So what is now stopping the US from striking Iran?

An International Consensus

The Trump administration says, according to this report that it wants to build an international consensus—an agreement with its allies—before any strike…
