The prophesied Perfect Storm—an unprecedented global calamity—is the evilness, a personification of the Antichrist, which will control this world’s economic systems, governmental and political systems, religious systems, and so forth. For this reason, the left-behind people are being forewarned that, if they do not have the right and intimate relationship with God, during the Tribulation Period, then it is highly probable that they will be caught unaware by an unusually intense “storm” pattern that sure enough will put their eternal lives in GRAVE danger!
No one should doubt that there are indeed unidentified flying objects (UFOs). What people should understand, however, is that these extraterrestrial sightings are neither of bacterial-like organisms nor of outer space (distant galaxies) flying saucer traveling “beings” who are far more advanced than Earth’s humans. Biblically speaking, these UFOs are celestial sightings of either the elect angels (holy angels, who from ancient time to this very day are helpful to humans, which is why they often are referred to as guardian angels), or the fallen angels (those evil and rebellious angels cast out of Heaven with Lucifer, who currently are free to torment mankind).
It should be evident to today’s believers that if they do not understand Jesus the Christ or the Apostle Paul’s Hebraic roots, then these believers never will fully comprehend many of the Rosh Hashanah (Yom Teruah or the Fall Feast of Trumpets’) idioms/expressions that Jesus the Christ and the Apostle Paul use when they speak about the “Last Days” and “End Times.” For the record, there are at least 12 or 13 traditional Rosh Hashanah idioms (ancient names and/or expressions the Jewish people used to explain the spirit or real meaning of Rosh Hashanah). Of the 12 or 13 familiar Rosh Hashanah idioms, Jesus the Christ references at least two of them when He says, “No one knows, however, when that day and hour will come neither the angels in heaven nor the Son; the Father alone knows” (Matthew 24:36, GNT)—these referenced idioms are Yom HaKeseh (Hidden Day/Day of Hiding or Day of Concealment) and Kiddushin/Nesu’in (The Messiah’s Wedding Ceremony). Now, the Lord’s Matthew 24:36 prophecy follows the verses in which Jesus the Christ is telling us that just like any Hebrew would know with certainty that the time when figs are their ripest is during the summer harvest time, which for ancient Israel was in the summer months of late August and early September (Elul and Tishri), then we New Testament believers should know with certainty the sign that would precede the Lord’s bodily Second Coming (cf. Mathew 24:32-35). This sign, believe it or not, is wrapped up, tied up, and tangled up in every one of the Jewish idioms for Rosh Hashanah!
Contrary to what so many people think today, we have neither experienced the first 3½ years of the 7-year Tribulation Period nor are we in the second 3½ years of the 7-year Tribulation Period! Having said that, it also has to be noted that believers today are not putting their trust ONLY in God and what He says in His Word will happen, but rather they are trusting in what humans have interpreted the Scriptures to be saying about many prophesied events.
Because most believers do not realize that there are two categories of fallen angels, they mistakenly call the Abyss Beast the dragon, meaning Satan. The two categories of fallen angels are: (1) The angels cast out of Heaven with Lucifer (these fallen angels are still free to torment mankind); and (2) The angels who fell the second time, because they wanted to marry and have sex with the daughters of men. The second category of fallen angels (“sons of God”) consists ONLY of those fallen angels that are chained in the abyss out of which comes Abaddon also called Apollyon.
Several end time prophecy scholars have said that they believe many “saints” will just get into Heaven with the smell of smoke on them, and that these “saints” will stand before the Lord naked . . . in this sense, literally not wearing any garments at all, for they have not lived a lifestyle that typifies righteousness and holiness. The Word of God is clear about those “saints” who will smell like smoke, having just missed the Lake of Fire. Thus, it is not hard to see that it also might be possible that some Bride of Christ members could stand before the Lord stripped naked. Think about it. If everyone in the Bride of Christ were worthy of wearing this white linen garment, why would Christ have to grant (consent, acknowledge, or, in the Amplified version, permit) Her the right to wear the holy garment?
The good news is that the end-time future of Egypt, Assyria and Israel, for example, is going to be glorious. These three nations for centuries have been enemies, but in a God-orchestrated ironic twist they all will be allies in an end time Messianic League. The bad news is that Egypt, Edom, Moab, Ammon, and every other Gentile nation that has rebelled against God is going to be punished, some before and some after Armageddon. Indeed, even though the Little Horn, ten horns, and other Tribulation nations/populations might survive the Tribulation, this good news will be trumped by the bad news that the saints will be separated from the ain’ts!
World Empire number 8 (Apostle John’s 8th head, which comes out of the 7 heads) will be the empire that gives power to a ten-nation coalition. Furthermore, this 10-nation coalition (the ten horns on the seven heads) is found in Psalm 83:6-8. An observant person will notice that these 10 enemies of God and Israel are currently Arabic nations/populations, and God’s Word makes it clear that the end-time prophecies have to do with the Jesus the Christ’s return to Jerusalem (as Jerusalem, and not Rome, is the biblical center of the world). The Lord returns as the Jewish peoples’ king who has come to destroy the enemies of God and Israel; therefore, it should be evident that the world’s belief in the Antichrist coming out of and ruling over the United Nations 10 World Regions and Continental Regions is way off, as is the belief in a Revived Roman Empire.
The contemporary view of the European Union’s 10-nation confederation not only is a version of “New Math” but also some hogwash, for sure. God tells believers in Psalm 83:6-8 who EXACTLY will be the members of the prophesied 10-nation confederation!
Most Christians are not aware that there is not going to be a Revived Roman Empire; therefore, they are also unaware of the fact the last successive empire that came against Israel is the Ottoman/Turkish/Islamic Empire, and that this is the empire that will be revived. Moreover, the Islamic religion of this revived empire is really a system of government, which relies on Mystery Babylon (oil/pitch) . . . from that Great Harlot (city). She not only sits on seven kingdoms (gets nations drunk with her wine) but also she sits on the seven hills of Mecca!
