After a few months I woke
understanding that the parables of the Laborers in
Matthew chapter 20 was about
5 Ages. I began to wake at night to write
things that I would suddenly understand. In 2009 the meaning of the 70 Weeks
prophecy came showing the
relationship of Mt 24:32, Luke 21:24 and Revelation 18.
I believe what I understood at night are
treasures to those who seek, they are not prophecies.
I am simply disclosing the generalities of what I see coming
in the future.
Interestingly, this writing is for the comfort of believers(seeing
events in advance will lead us
to be diligent and secure in our faith), but at
the same time many unsaved people will see things
coming, that can be avoided,
andwill believe in Jesus to save them from the destruction to come.
What if I were to tell you
that SOON a new Worldwide
Kingdom will come
the entire earth and that the format, assignments and role of this kingdom
already in place.
That is from the Bible
What if I were to tell you that
just prior to that new Worldwide
the earth will be decimated by war, famine, tidal waves, nuclear and meteor strikes
That is from the Bible
What if I were to tell you
that soon there will be a sudden destruction and that
no matter where you live on the earth the entire scope of your
life will reel with the
changes it will bring.
That is from the Bible.
The three events from above, the last one, the soonest to occur, is "a snare" that Jesus
predicts in Luke 21:35, and will remove all true Believers in Jesus then immediately
destroy Mystery Babylon (most likely America) and seal 144,000 new preachers of the
kingdom of God. The Middle event will follow that and be 7 years of chaos and the rise
of the antichrist empire and lead to the battle of Armageddon. The first event listed will
be the Return of Jesus Christ the King to start his unending kingdom on the earth.
So, if you are content to be
where you are in your life, and aren’t concerned in the least
what is about to
happen soon, have a good day!
The next section will give
the events that are due soon on the earth.
Only a little context is given for the references but the research is behind them,
it is up to those who hear to follow up.
We see in Revelation chapter 18, a place being
In light of the prophecies
that show Israel and surrounding countries as being the central focus
Last Days it does not seem that this place that is destroyed would be in
Europe or the Middle East.
Revelation 18 also shows that
because merchants(sellers) are devastated at this destruction,
that is destroyed must be a BUYER
of the marketed goods produced in other places.
That would mean that the economy of that BUYING place was good and that the
of that place was stabilizing the places that the seller merchants
I believe this is America in 2017.
In Revelation chapter 6 we
see the results on the world, from the destruction(whether nuclear or meteoric)
of this place, symbolized as 4 horsemen with these roles:
1. White horse:
- and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.
horse: - takes peace from the earth that they should kill one another.
horse: - food lack - scales weighing food in his hand, a measure of
wheat for a days wages.
- his name is Death, and Hell followed with him. And
power was given unto them over the fourth
part of the earth, to kill with
sword, and with hunger.
4 horsemen generalize the entire destruction that follows all through the book of Revelation.
They are not sequential, when they start they
happen continually on the whole earth in varying degrees
and are reflected in
all the plagues that come.
The events above are going to start to happen to
the entire world in the next few
If you look at the last
“What if I were to tell you” just prior to this chapter, that would be those next
destruction of the place in Revelation 18 is just prior to and may be viewed as
the natural causes of the events that the 4 horsemen begin.
prophesied this in Luke 21:35-36 when he said “For as a snare shall it come on all
them that dwell on the face of the
whole earth. (36) Watch
ye therefore, and pray always,
that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to
the Son of man”.
match what Jesus says about ‘escaping all these things’ and the “snare”,
just before this sudden destruction begins, says “come out of her my people that
partake not of her plagues”.
see it’s the same thing, the same time and it is in synchronization with what
says in Matthew 24:40 and Luke 17:34 about “one taken” and “one
You don’t want to be left on
earth when these things happen.
said we should be understanding when it is about the time of the “snare”
be watching at that time.
look at the dates of the events around this destruction.
Israel’s 70th anniversary is in 2018.
Jerusalem’s 50th anniversary is in 2017.
the number 70 and 50 have deeper meanings in the Bible.
the fact that Israel
will never again have such notable dates to
celebrate should tell us
something about that time frame.
believe that they are telling us the
exact times when the things you have
just read about are going to start.
Look at verse 36 above – what
should we be doing? Watching.
For what? For anything that would give us a clue when the
of these things might be beginning to happen.
Jesus said specifically in
Luke 21:24 that when Jerusalem
was owned again
by the Jews that the “times of the gentiles” would be over!
That is a clue.
The number 50 in
the Bible is used to consistently show the bringing in of a NEW Spiritual status.
example, the infilling of the Holy Spirit on the disciples was on the 50th day (Acts 2),
(freedom year) was on the 50th year(Leviticus 25:10) and the Jews
honor the 50th day
after the Passover as the date when the Law was
given on Mount Sinai.
So you see, when the “times
of the gentiles” is over, we are in a waiting
a period of 50 years
(see my other writings as to why years not days) for
a new Spiritual situation.
From June 1967 to June 2017 is 50 years.
In this incidence, the new Spiritual status will be God
sealing the 144,000 Jews as predicted in Revelation 7.
The week starting June 4,
1967 was when the 6 Day War began - to combat the attack against Israel by
Between June 5th and 7th Jerusalem became “not trodden down” or owned
by gentiles as we see predicted in Luke 21:24.
The same days of the week
fall in 2017 as they did in 1967, should we not pay attention to that?
Jesus says in Matthew 24:42
to “Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour
your Lord doth come”.
He said that, just after
telling us of a supernatural event where he gives several examples of two
together, working or sleeping, and one
of them is taken to be with him and one person is left behind.
Don’t be left behind!
Jesus said as he went off to
pray the night before he was taken, then came back to find the disciples
“What, could ye not watch with
me one hour? Watch and pray, that
ye enter not into temptation”.
So it’s quite possible that we
can know almost to the hour when the rapture will be.
Don’t fall into temptation at
that time, but be diligent in watching.
We get more insight from
1Thessalonians 5:2-9 where it says about the world situation
“For yourselves know perfectly that the day
of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.
For when they shall say, Peace
and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them…
and they shall
not escape” 4 “But ye, brethren, are not
in darkness, that that day should
overtake you as a thief” 6 “Therefore let us not sleep, as do
others; but let us watch and be sober”.
7 “For they that sleep sleep in
the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night”
8 “But let us, who are of the day, be sober… “
9 “For God hath not appointed us to wrath…”.
During that period of June 5th
and 6th 2017, 50 years after Israel gained control of Jerusalem,
should pay attention as if Jesus himself had asked us to “watch with me one
hour” - Matthew 26:40.
1Thessalonians 5:9 winds up
with “For God hath not appointed us to wrath”, in Revelation 18:4
angel lights the earth – the Rapture) it comparatively says “Come out of her my people…
that ye receive not of her plagues”.
These verses ring of the same event.
In Jeremiah 29:10 God
frees Israel to return home
after 70 years of being in captivity,
so as God uses this number in relation to a previous Israel,
is it not likely in this current time
He might use 70 years to free Israel to the
truth, to witness and believe?
That’s the date, sudden
destruction, a special choosing of 144,000 witnesses by God and the
of the march of the 4 horsemen on the parts of the world not already destroyed.
Note that the 4 angels(that
have control over the horsemen?) in Revelation chapter 7
are told not to harm
the earth until God seals the 144,000.
That is a distinct end of an
Age, Just as Jesus could not have started his preaching of the
Matthew chapter 4 until the preaching to the Jews by John the Baptist had
the sealing of the 144,000 cannot begin until the current group of
witnesses of Jesus Christ are removed.
Get ready now, because if you
are not already ready, it will come too quickly to adequately respond.
Matthew 24: 50 - 51 “The lord of that servant shall come
in a day when he looketh not for him, and
in an hour that he is not aware of, And shall cut him asunder,
and appoint him his portion with the
hypocrites: there shall be weeping
and gnashing of teeth.”.
That does not sound very pleasant does it?
You can agree with God right now that your Life is not
what he wants it to be, and it’s not what you
want it to be either. Dissatisfaction, strife, repeating the same
crummy processes. You can change
Heart right now. Stop and ask Jesus to
come into your heart, that you accept the forgiveness
that he gave his life for
and that you commit to a new direction for your life, to become His disciple
and for Grace to Love as Jesus loved and to be one of His people who are worthy
to escape the wrath to come.
Say, and walk in these words and you are GUARENTEED forgiveness
and a place of total
acceptance in God’s eternal family!
Jesus gives us 2 major timing
prophecies that reinforces the relevancy
of the date in relation to today’s
Others may disagree with
what I see these prophecies as meaning.
Jesus said in Matthew 24:32 that when the fig tree (Israel)
becomes a nation (this
happened in 1948) that we would be in the Last Generation.
Jesus said in Luke 21:24 that when Jerusalem is owned
again by the Jews (this happened in 1967), that the “times
of the gentiles”
So we are in the ‘Last Generation’ since 1948 AND ‘end of the gentile times since
Two big prophecies that should make us be
aware that we should

of a candle shall shine no more at all in
voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more
all in thee: for thy merchants were the great
men of the earth; for by thy
were all nations deceived.” - Revelation
of Rev 18 is about the destruction of one
limited place. The entire earth
is not destroyed
because those not destroyed in chapter 18 mourn the place that
was destroyed. As said before,
of people were told to “come out of her”
before the destruction. This
could not be the
coming of Jesus to set up his kingdom because that ends all
things and there would not be
merchants at this times due to the extensive
damage to earth by the judgments throughout
Revelation and the battle of Armageddon.
limited type of destruction talked about in Revelation 18 could easily bring on
that the 4 horsemen produce though.
18 describes a group of “great men of the earth”, they were money men
, owners of huge conglomerates, of stock markets that bought and sold
everything and made a
profit doing it, other merchants and businesses respected
them, and mourn when they are wiped out
– IN ONE HOUR! (Rev 18:8)
I believe this is describing
Revelation 18 starts out with the pronouncement in
verse 2 that “Babylon
the great is fallen”,
we see that the “earth was lightened” and a people were called to “come
out of her”.
Read again the verse underneath the chapter heading.
does not take a genius to see which country is producing a Gospel “voice”,
(radio, TV, internet), that is
silenced in the verse above.
The positive side is that
there was a voice coming out, right until the end.
Once that is gone we see suppression, false Christs,
false religion etc.
starkness and reality of the truth that the New generation of the 144,000 will
with it is a different age and are specifically the “chosen” from the
parable of the workers in Matthew 20:16
the Revelation18:23 verse above, what was taken out?
said that He is the light of the world in John 9:5.
do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel” Jesus said,.. so
this specific time (above) the Light of testimony had been shining.
the church is taken out (“come out of her my people”) by the Rapture from this one
nation the verse called “in thee” which
did have the light coming out of it,
will no longer be any light in it at all (there will be no more Gospel
light in it or coming
out of it, and perhaps even no livable physical environment).
21:43 says: “Therefore say I unto you,
The kingdom of God shall be taken from you,
and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof”.
verse was prophecy about America receiving the evangelistic Gospel message and soon
will come to the point where “the light of a candle shall shine no more at all
I believe that that allocation of the resources to “a nation” to spread the
reversed as the Rapture and sudden destruction destroys it to the
point that that nation
“shall no more
have the light in it”. America as the messenger of the Gospel ceases,
while the original intent of the spreading of the Gospel goes back to Israel through
sealing of the 144,000 (Rev 7).
Has any nation brought forth more fruit than America?
Think of the Gospel shared,
the missionaries sent, the orphanages opened, even the mostly
within that our country has had, all based on American Christians being
obedient to God.
the reference to ‘sorceries’, would that
describe things like technology, graphics, CGI interfaced movies,
manhood and womanhood… things that would make other nations want to buy and
vanities and technological advances (sorceries) of our nation?
nation, above all nations has advanced those things?
the writings in Revelation about Babylon being
so fantastic and filled with idols…
how could the existing Babylon (which, as we have recently heard is
being slightly rebuilt)
become such a world power that the merchants of the
earth would weep over her.
with America, Europe and China
still in the picture.
see the nation that gets destroyed is symbolic Babylon, a rich nation with a lot of trade
partners and technology, and those seeing her destruction can stand “far off” (physically distanced, as to
you ever thought about all those Revelation destructions… a third of the trees
a third of the waters, a third of the people all destroyed, yet it
seems that society still continues
up until armies are raised at the battle of
Armageddon to fight. Could it be that
all those one third
destructions are located in one area, away from Europe and
the Middle East?
Let’s look at two verses to
get a better understanding of what I believe to be a prediction
of America and see
how this matches Revelation chapter 18.
Romans 10:18 - 19 “ But I say, Have they not heard?
Yes verily, their sound went into all the earth,
and their words unto the
ends of the world. But I say, Did
know? First Moses saith,
I will provoke
you to jealousy by them that are no people, and by a foolish
nation I will anger you”.
This is a prediction of a
nation that can take their sound & words to all the earth, not just at the
of a technological period (like Marconi and the invention of the radio)
but at the end of a
development cycle, when the existing technology AND
distribution, at THAT TIME, “their sound”
would cover the entire earth.
American radio, television
and movies are at that point more than any other.
And specifically those words
will provoke Israel, because,
I believe, those words
going to all the earth will be about Jesus, who was
rejected by Israel.
And the verse is referring to
a nation that was not a nation at the time this was
written (“them that are no people”) or a
‘melting pot’ nation.
So we can see that America would fit in three points (1) a merchant
(2) a nation that can take their message (as American Christian
stations do) around the world, and
(3) that message would not be appealing to Israel.
I think that the way liberal
thinking has made America
today, to comment on the
“foolish nation” aspect of the verse would be
In the bible what is the
symbol we associate with Babylon?
The tower… what does a tower
symbolize – Broadcasting –
“their sound went into all the earth”.
As the tower of Babel
attempted to reach to the heavens, God confounded their
languages and scattered
them upon all the face of the earth…. America represents all
languages brought together again in a mixing pot – and also transmitted on the
airwaves, ready to be scattered by the rapture.
Could we say that the verse
that I believe takes the Gospel from the Jews to America:
“Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be
taken from you, and given
to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof”(Mt 21:43),
could also apply at the end
of this Age, only to appoint the Gospel back to Israel?
fits a nation that would bring forth fruits of the kingdom of God,
the sound going around the world, and a nation that did not exist when that was
Another thought on this is
what we can see from the timing of
the World Empires predicted
in Revelation 17:10: “And there are seven
kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is
not yet come; and when
he cometh, he must continue a short
space. And the beast that was,
and is not, even he is the eighth,
and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.
And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received
no kingdom as yet;
but receive power as kings one hour with the beast”.
A world empire (America,
like the nation who’s merchants were the great men of the earth
chapter verse) would be the 7th empire. It would last a “short space”
But out of the remains or structure or
last leadership of the 7th the 8th Empire the
Antichrist would rise.
Revelation 17 talks about these 8 world kingdoms it goes into a little detail
about the 8th
empire (just beginning) but in Revelation chapter 18
it jumps back into specific detail about a
nation that is destroyed. I
believe that Revelation 18 is the detail of the destruction of the short
world empire described in Revelation chapter 17.
So we can see that America
would fit in six points (1) a merchant nation, (2) a nation shining the light,
(3) a nation that can take their
message around the world, (4) a message
not be appealing to Israel,
(5) a nation that did not exist at that time (6) a
nation with a big imprint but a short history.
Can see that the timeframe of
the rapture IS something God wants us to see and prepare for.
And if you can look at the information
pertaining to the date of the rapture and see 2017 as the
best timing then you
can see the evidence that America could be the nation that the Bible talks
as being suddenly destroyed…. then futuristically you can understand a
Then we can move on to the
next question which is, can we see HOW America
will be destroyed at the
same time as the rapture.
Let’s focus in on the instant of the rapture.
Jesus says that some will be
sleeping and some will be working (Mt 24:40-41, Luke 17:34-36).
This shows that the rapture
will be world wide, while we work in America,
others are sleeping in Asia.
But there is another warning in Luke, just a little before Jesus talks about the ‘ones
being taken and the ones being left’.
Here is the context:
Luke 17:27 “They did eat,
they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage,
until the day that Noe entered into
the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed
28 Likewise also as it was in
the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold,
planted, they builded; But the same day
that Lot went out of Sodom
rained fire and brimstone
from heaven, and destroyed them all.
30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed”.
I am going to stop here just
for a second… notice what happens in each of these events,
life is going on as
normal then there is a sudden destruction.
In Noah’s day the Luke verse above says
that a flood came and destroyed them all.
But, in the day Lot went out of Sodom, “it rained fire and brimstone” on a
Jesus says it’s
going to happen in that same manner
“in the day when the
Son of man is revealed”! Destruction on a specific place.
God has said that the earth
will never be flooded again but is
Jesus telling us that
on the day the Rapture happens – it will rain fire and
That seems to fit in
with a one third destruction, in one hour, if that is true,
perhaps many won’t
even notice that there has been a rapture?
But here is an even bigger
point, since Jesus is telling us that on that day there will be fire
brimstone, he begins to tell us what to do as we see it coming: (Luke 17)
31 “In that day, he which shall be upon the
housetop, and his stuff in the house,
let him not come down to take it away:
and he that is in the field, let him likewise not return back.
32 Remember Lot's
shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life
shall preserve it”.
verses above are different from the ones in Matthew 24:16 where Jesus says
Judea should flee to the
mountains (that was about the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 A.D
.(how do you flee Fire
verses 31 to 33 (above) are about not looking back, and not fleeing,
being ready to lose our lives, to
preserve our lives in God!
IS ABOUT PREPARING FOR THE RAPTURE
and the very next verse takes us there…(Luke 17)
34 “I tell you,
in that night there shall be two in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the
other shall be left.
shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
36 Two shall be in the field; the one shall be
taken, and the other left.
37 And they answered and said unto him, Where,
Lord? And he said unto them,
Wheresoever the body is, there will the eagles be gathered together”.
we can see the ‘Eagle and Body” verse in the context of the
‘body’ of believers being taken from the
earth, but the word
used in the comparative verse in Mt
24:28 where physical
bodies are destroyed at the same time as the
Revelation 18:8 “Therefore shall
her plagues come in one day,
death, and mourning,
and famine; and she
shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God
who judgeth her. And the kings of the
earth, who have committed fornication and lived
deliciously with her, shall
bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her
Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas,
that great city Babylon,
that mighty city!
for in one hour
is thy judgment come.”
What if all
eternity hangs on our acceptance of God's offer of Love?
And we reject that and decide to
choose our own way, or try to hang on to the old wrong ways
as long as
we can. Isn’t that the same rebellion
against God that Satan had.
We can’t come to God anytime
WE choose (John 6:65).
It has to be in response to the
Holy Spirit calling us.
But if you feel he is talking to you now…
You can say right now “I choose
Jesus and accept his payment for my sins and I AM
going to get off this path of
destruction right now and become a follower of the truth
in Jesus because Jesus
said that “For God so loved the world, that
he gave his only
begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world;
but that the world
through him might be saved” and I accept that. (John 3:16-17)
If you prayed
that prayer then you have a promise –
that he will never leave you or forsake
you ! (Hebrews 13:5)
Fellow servant, Do what Jesus did and also told us to do:
“…If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up
his cross, and follow me” - Mt 16:24.
What did Jesus deny himself?
He denied himself just about everything.
But it’s not in the ‘what’ He denied himself, it’s about the ‘act
of self denial’.
In other words, make it a practice to say ‘No’ to the things you
know are wrong.
Let us begin to live according to the Spirit, Galatians 2:20 says:
“I am crucified with
Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me:
and the life
which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God,
me, and gave himself for me”
is the time to change!
you prayed, then Ephesians 1:13 says
that you will be sealed for God:
whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel
of your salvation:
in whom also after that ye believed,ye were sealed with
that holy Spirit of
resurrection of Jesus from the dead, shows God’s acknowledgement of that
payment for our sin
and promises us the same Eternal Life that Jesus had when
he said “I am he that liveth, and was dead;
and, behold, I am alive for evermore,
Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death”. Revelation
What happens on the earth at this
Revelation 17:10-12 “And there are seven kings: five are
fallen, and one is, and the
is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. And the beast that was,
and is not, even he is
the eighth, and is of the
seven, and goeth into perdition. And the
which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as
yet; but receive power as kings
one hour with the beast”.
John was writing under Roman
rule so Rome
would be the 6th Empire,
the “and one is” from the
verse above. But the 7th king
lasts just a “short space”.
What other world empire has
there been since Rome that has lasted only a
short time but
could be clearly seen as a World Empire (China & Europe
have a long standing history).
other nation has the traits of ‘bearing fruit’, having the light of the gospel,
being a ‘buying’ nation whose destruction would impact the world
Looking at America I can see
her currently as a world Empire and in terms of history,
she has not been
around a long time so if America is
the main part of the Fire & Brimstone
destruction of Luke 17:29,
just after a “snare” comes on all the world, that would fit the role
nation that historically could be said would “continue a short space”.
Other nations are still
around that were former world empires (Italy – Greece etc.) but in this verse
to me like when this 7th
empire is gone there is no trace left of it’s lingering influence.
So, could America
be the nation that is destroyed at the time of the rapture?
You will have to think about
that for yourself, but there are many other arguments for
that idea that we
have not even touched upon – take a look at Isaiah chapter 18 for instance,
find others, let the Holy Spirit guide you.
The 8th Empire
will be the one that breaks in pieces and tears mentioned in Daniel 7:7 and
also seen in detail
in Revelation chapter 13, but chronologically I believe
that the rapture and then the destruction in Revelation
chapter 18 will happen
before that 8th Empire is revealed.
