Welcome 2019! Can I just say that it promises to be a crazy year! If you follow my Friday Mad Mad World posts, you already know much of what occurred prophetically in 2018. As I look back over all those events, I'm stunned at how fast prophecy is advancing and how insane things are becoming.
Below are my thoughts and recollections from events of this past year as they fit into prophetic categories. If you are a non-believer reading this, please consider that the Bible predicted all these things that have happened and will happen. Who can do that but God Himself? I'll summarize at the end.
Wars and Rumors of Wars ( Matthew 24:6)
We saw an historic meeting between Trump and the North Korean dictator that was supposed to end North Korea's nuclear ambitions, yet this remains to be seen. But what disturbs me the most has been both the rise of Russia and China on the military stage. If you keep informed at all, you surely have seen the constant threats issued back and forth between Russia and the US (Hmm. And I thought Trump colluded with Russia to get elected?) Just recently Russia revealed a new supersonic missile that travels 27 times the speed of sound and for which our defense systems have NO defense. Add to that the trade war with China and the threats coming out of that dictatorship toward our country and the world seems to be on the edge of WW3. Of course we also have the Syrian conflict, the chemical weapons used against the people there, and the battle against ISIS. In addition how could we forget the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and the almost daily threats coming out of Iran to destroy Israel completely. And don't forget about Erdogan, the new dictator of Turkey. He now has military forces in Syria as well.
Rise of Antisemitism (Bible prophecies all the world will hate Israel)Attacks on Synagogues on the rise
UN condemns Israel 21 times (only a few other countries were condemned and only once)
ProphecyIn Isaiah 17, it is prophesied that Damascus will be completely destroyed as a city. Currently much of Damascus is destroyed from the Syrian War. However, it still exists as a city. I believe it will be destroyed in the Gog-Magog war (see below)
Billy Graham passed away at the age of 99. There have been many prophets who said that the rapture would happen soon after his passing.
Middle East In Turmoil and Prophecy fulfilled. Jerusalem will be a cup of trembling to the WorldTrump's son in law, Jarad Kushner (who some say is the Antichrist) worked on an Israeili-Palestinan Peace Agreement through most of 2018 that he plans on revealing in 2019. Many believe this could be the precursor to the treaty the Antichrist confirms with "many" to initiate the 7 year Tribulation. (Daniel 9:27)
HISTORIC! Trump announced his recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. For 70 years Tel Aviv has been the capital. The US embassy was moved there on May 14, 2018, the 70th anniversary of Israel as a nation Afterward, some other nations also moved their embassies there.
Gog-MaGog war of Ezekiel 38 is at the brink of happening. All the major players now have armies in Syria (Iran, Russia, and Turkey) Erdogan of Turkey has proclaimed the soon rise of a new Islamic caliphate and he also called for all Muslims to march on Israel. I personally believe the rapture will occur shortly before or after the start of this war.
The Third Temple. Now, this is exciting to me. There has to be a third temple in Jerusalem in order for the antichrist to enter it and claim himself to be god in the middle of the Tribulation. This is the abomination of desolation Jesus spoke of in Matthew 24:15. This past year, the Sanhedrin began minting Third Temple coins, Priests offered a Passover sacrifice at the foot of the Temple mount, 44 Jews worshiped and prayed openly on the Temple Mount, Temple priests were ordained, and very importantly, an altar to be used in the third temple was dedicated to the Lord and a sacrifice was offered on it!
Unrest, violence, the love of many grows coldRiots all over world, France, Brazil, Venezuela...etc
Shooters enter places of worship, work, and school and kill innocent people they don't even know. I don't think I need to offer further evidence that we live in a very violent world. Just turn on the news and you'll see.
Corruption in government. Discord, fighting, threats and it goes on and on and on. I've never seen the likes of this in my country
Like the Days of NoahJust when you thought you'd seen and heard enough about homosexuals, here come the transgenders. 2018 was the rise of the transgenders and their right to express whatever gender they felt like on any given day. In fact, it got so bad that teachers were fired for not calling male students "her" and female students "she" when they identified as the opposite sex. Children as young as 7 are getting sex-change operations. In some places you will pay a fine if you call someone by the wrong gender pronoun. This is insanity!
Immorality is rampant. Just turn on your TV to any show. Couples jump into bed on a whim, gays, transgenders and sisgenders appear on nearly every show. THEY ARE TRYING TO BRAINWASH YOU into thinking this is normal. This is right. This is acceptable. I'm here to tell you that this will lead you straight to hell. No turning back. Do not collect 200. I'm serious. Our children are being indoctrinated everywhere they turn. And we are labeled haters.
Rise of the Nephilim. - this is a sensitive topic that many of you won't believe, but the major problem in Noah's day was these giant hybrids of angel-human origin. Satan was trying to polute the human gene pool so Jesus couldn't be born. These Nephilim had gotten so bad, they were eating humans for food. That's why God had to wipe out everyone. Guess what, they are back. They are hidden. Go on You Tube and type in Nephilim among us.

Signs in the skyThis past year, UFO sightings were on the rise. Of course you know I don't believe these are extraterrestrials, but rather interdimensionals. What are interdimensionals? Demons, fallen angels, powers of darkness. I believe they are appearing so often so that people will believe the major deception coming on the earth... that Alien beings from another planet have arrived to take over because we have messed things up so much. They will tell mankind that they are our creators who planted us here long ago and they have been monitoring us. This may sound far-fetched, but can you imagine the number of people who will believe this? I recently met a man in a grocery store who was talking about this very thing with great enthusiasm. These "beings" will present themselves as kind and generous, but will turn on mankind and attempt to kill everyone. Sorry to be morbid, but it's important for people to know.
Longest Blood moon of the century over Jerusalem in July. Blood moons are signs for Israel that something important is about to happen.
You may also recall many people this past year seeing meteors in the sky, as well as glowing balls and weird sounds like trumpets.
AntiChrist Beast System on the riseAI - Artificial intelligence has reached new heights and is predicted to out preform human intelligence very soon. Recently I viewed a robot online who acted and looked nearly perfectly human. Amazing stuff... but how frightening in light of prophecy and the deception coming on the world.
This past year in China, we've seen the rise of a severe dictatorship. Not only are they persecuting Christians, but they are now implementing a Citizen credit system which rates you on your beliefs and if they don't agree with theirs, you get a low score, which restricts your freedom. I kid you not.
Recombinant DNA in chips - this technology is already here and is the most frightening of all. Please google it for more information. They can now put DNA into chips that they insert into people. This DNA has the ability to alter your own DNA. The purpose is to correct disease and heal the person, but what if they put Nephilim DNA on the chip, or the Mark of the Beast? Then that person would become part Fallen Angel, part human, and their chance at ever being redeemed will be gone. This is why the Bible says never to take the Mark of the Beast. If you do, you can never be saved.
Currently there are thousands of people willing to have a chip implanted in them for the sake of security and identity theft.
In order for the Antichrist to come to power, there has to be a loss of freedom and a loss of free speech. This past year, we've seen how social media giants like Facebook and Twitter have banned people from posting opinions opposite of their own left-wing liberal agenda. This should terrify every American, no matter what side you are on.
Also the Antichrist must have a way to track every person on the planet. The chip will certainly do that, but currently anyone with a cell phone can be tracked, even if you turn it off. Also if you have an Alexa or a Google equivalent in your home, there have been reports of them spying on people and recording them, as well as documenting everything you purchase. We no longer have privacy.
Loss of media integrity. I've also spoken in this recently. We can no longer trust the media to tell us the facts and the truth. They all have an agenda. When your media has been infiltrated, the population can be manipulated. And we see this happening every day.
Macron of France creates a 10-nation EU military
False prophets/ApostasyI have come to realize that when Jesus and the Apostles warned us of False Prophets, they didn't just mean the obvious ones who start cults, but men and women who are pastors and teachers in normal churches. Recently I posted about the apostasy and false doctrines we find in most Western churches and how the devil has infiltrated even the best-intentioned congregation.
Of course we also saw this past year Gays being ordained as ministers and some denominations agreeing with homosexuality, etc. There was even a pastor of a church who declared herself an atheist, which makes no sense to me.
Also, it's important to point out that there is much conversation about blending all the faiths together in an effort toward peace. The Pope has expressed this desire often and has met with leaders of Islam etc.. In fact, if we get rid of Jesus being the only way to Heaven, we will find that we have much in common with other religions. But that's the point, isn't it? This of course leads up to the One World Religion which will be headed by the False prophet. Many believe this to be the current Pope. I am not sure.
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
A quarter of a billion Christians faced major persecution in 2018. In China, it was the worst, where many churches were shut down and pastors arrested. According to opendoorsusa watchlist, 3,066 Christians were killed, 1,252 were abducted, 1,020 were raped or sexually harassed, and 793 churches were attacked.
Just because you personally haven't been attacked, many of our brothers and sisters have been. Many are being tortured, imprisoned and murdered even as I write this. Of course, Jesus said this would intensify as we get toward the end.
Like I said, it's been a crazy year for prophecy. I didn't have room or time here to list everything that happened. Of course all these things are predicted in the Bible, both in the Old and New Testaments. Several things stood out to me that prove that we are on the verge of the rapture of God's faithful bride. One, how close Israel is to their Third Temple. Two, loss of freedoms and increase in technology, Third, the Gog-MaGog players all right next to Israel, Forth, the incredible apostasy of the church, and Fifth, the deception in our media and corruption of governments everywhere. Most people are completely in the dark as to what is truly going on in the world, and even in their own countries. Most Christians have no idea how close we are to the end. It truly saddens me greatly and is why I try to inform as many as I can through this blog.
I believe things will only get worse in 2019. Why? Because Jesus described the end times as a woman's labor pains, and once those pains start, they don't stop. Instead, they come quicker and stronger until the baby is born. Who is the baby? The Kingdom of God on earth with Jesus reigning from Jerusalem! Praise the King of Kings!
Yet, don't be depressed or frightened. If you know Jesus personally and follow Him with all your heart, you have nothing to fear. Soon He will come and snatch us out of here so that we will be with Him forever! So, watch and pray, and tell as many people about Him as you can!
