MATTHEW CHAPTER 24 Part 2(video & text)

Verse 22) “And except those days should be shortened. there should no flesh be saved: but for the elects sake those days shall be shortened.” The Great Tribulation will begin a time of trouble that the world has never seen, followed by an even worse time of trouble, the seven vials of the wrath of God. The elect are the saved. This time of trouble will be shortened for their sakes to 3 and 1/2 years because they are going to be rescued at the rapture immediately after the 3 and 1/2 years of the Great Tribulation before the seven vials of the wrath of God begins.

Verse 23-28) “Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before. Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. For as the lightnings cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For wheresoever the carcass is, there will the eagles be gathered together.”If anybody told me that Jesus had come back, and was in a secret place in the desert. I would tell them that was not true, because if Jesus had come back I wouldn’t be here. I would be in heaven at the marriage supper of the Lamb in my new body and having a great time at the biggest party and family reunion in history! Jesus warns us again to not be deceived by false prophets and false Christ’s even though the false prophet will do signs and wonders, even pulling fire out of the sky“And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.” (Revelation 13:13,14). When Jesus appears and takes us to heaven it will be fast like a twinkling of an eye, like the lightnings, like the Eagles (the saved) attacking a carcass,( Jesus). Have you ever seen how fast eagles can swoop down and pick up a rabbit and be gone with it? “In a moment in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump; for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.” (I Corinthians 15:52).

Verse 29,30) “Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken; And then shall appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of Man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.” Does it say immediately before the tribulation? NO! IT SAYS IMMEDIATELY AFTER !!! You can’t get any clearer than that! Then why do most churches today teach the dangerous false doctrine of Pre-Tribulation Rapture? The Lord has spent so much time in the Scriptures trying to show us the truth yet people don’t get it because they don’t search the Scriptures for themselves because they say this is what we pay the preacher for, and he doesn’t get it himself, because he is taking the word of someone else that taught him. “These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.” (Acts 17:11). Are you more noble? Do you search the Scriptures daily to see if these things are so? So Jesus said; Immediately after the Tribulation, which lasts for 3 and 1/2 years, 42 months, 1,260 days, which begins the day when the abomination of desolation will be placed in the Temple. Then he will appear in the clouds of heaven and resurrect the dead bodies of all the saved and those that are alive at this time, and change our bodies, and take us all to heaven, and all the people still alive on earth will mourn when they see Jesus appear and all the saved people disappear because they missed the rapture, and the wrath of God is coming upon them. The word “then” is another keyword. Immediately after the Tribulation in verse 29 “then” shall appear the sign of the Son of Man (Jesus) coming in the clouds of heaven. So Jesus appears and takes the saved to heaven at this time.

Verse 31“And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet. and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.” This is talking about the seventh trumpet in Revelation Chapter 10:7, which is the Rapture, which means “The Gathering Together”.

Verse 32) “Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh; So likewise ye when you shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.” The fig tree is talking about Israel. Even today the fig tree is the national symbol of Israel. Israel became a nation again for the second time on May 14, 1948. Israel was for the most part a barren desert land, but since Israel became a nation again it has become a very fruitful country in fact it is one of the top exporters of fruit in all the world. “He shall cause them that come of Jacob to take root: Israel shall blossom and bud and fill the face of the world with fruit.” (Isaiah 27:6). “The fig tree”, Israel, is definitely being built up and putting forth leaves. So the harvest, or rapture is near. “When the Lord shall build up Zion. (Israel) he shall appear in his glory.” (Psalm 102:16) These are the very words that Jesus spoke in Matthew 24 verse 30, “appear” and “glory.” “I will open rivers in high places and fountains in the midst of the valleys: I will make the wilderness a pool of water and the dry land springs of water. I will plant in the wilderness the Cedar, the shit-tah tree, and the myrtle, and the oil tree; I will set in the desert the fir tree, and the pine, and the box tree together: That they may see,and know, and consider, and understand together, that the hand of the Lord hath done this,and the Holy One of Israel hath created it. Produce your cause. saith the Lord: bring forth your strong reasons, saith the King of Jacob. Let them bring forth, and shew us what shall happen: let them shew the former things, what they be that we may consider them, and know the latter end of them; or declare us things for to come.” (Isaiah 41:18-22). Another amazing prophecy about Israel being built up as a sign of the soon coming of the Lord is found in (Isaiah 11:11-14).“And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time torecover the remnant of his people, which shall beleft, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Path’ -ros, and from Cush, and from E’-Iam, and from Shi’-nar, and from Ha’-math, and from the islands of the sea. And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcast of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth. The envy also of E’-phra-im shall depart, and the adversaries of Judah. shall be cut off: E’-phra-im shall not envy Judah, and Judah shall not vex E’-phra-im. But they shall fly upon the shoulders of the Phi-lis’-tines toward the west; they shall spoil them of the east together: they shall lay their hand upon E’-dom and Moab; and the children of Ammon shall obey them.” The second time God brought back the Jews to Israel was in 1948. This is when Israel became a nation again after they were scattered throughout the world, after Rome destroyed Jerusalem and the Temple in 70 A. D. Hitler persecuted and killed so many Jews which drove them out of Europe and all over the world to come to Israel. The first time the Jews were scattered by Babylon in 586 B.C. Until Artaxerxes king of Persia gave the commandment to restore and rebuild Jerusalem in 457 B.C. And the Jews came back to rebuild the street and wall of Jerusalem.( see our Daniel 9 Class). Also today there are no more south and north tribes called E’-phra-im and Judah, but Israel is one nation today. In verse 14 it says, “But they shall fly upon the shoulders of the Phi-lis’tines toward the west.” This amazing prophecy was fulfilled in 1967 during the 6 day war when the Israeli jets flew over the Gaza Strip ( the Philistines toward the West), and attacked the Egyptian Air Force and destroyed it, and destroyed their tanks and trucks and armies in the Sinai desert as they were on their way to attack Israel. God spoke through Isaiah around 750 BC about jet airplanes! The fig tree, Israel, is definitely being built up. This is an important sign of the end and the coming of Jesus Christ.

Verse 33) “So likewise ye,when you shall see all these things know that it is near even at the doors.” Jesus is coming soon! It is time to get ready. When someone we really like is coming over to visit us we get all excited, and get our house cleaned up to greet them, and then they arrive at our door step and we hurry to open the door and receive them. How much more should we be like this for the Lord? We know he is on his way.

Verse 34) “Verily I say unto you. This generation shall not pass until all these things be fulfilled.” This generation has seen most of these things come to pass, wars, earthquakes, famines, pestilences, the Gospel being preached worldwide, but there is still a lot to go. The next major sign we’re looking for is the confirming of the covenant. Which starts the last seven years, and the Abomination of Desolation being placed in the soon to be rebuilt Jewish Temple at Jerusalem, which starts the last 3 1/2 years or 42 months or 1,260 days. Remember these time periods are based on the Hebrew calendar of twelve 30 day months in a year. So the generation that sees all these events happen will not pass away until Jesus comes back.

Verse 35 and 36) “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.” God is going to make a new heaven, and a new earth, and the old heaven and earth will pass away, but Jesus’s Word will never pass away! Only God knew when Jesus was coming back, when Jesus spoke these words to his disciples“And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight. And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as you have seen him go into heaven.” (Acts 1:9-11).

Verse 37-39) “But as the days of No’-e were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that No’-e entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.” Things got pretty bad in Noah’s day, so bad, that God wanted to destroy men off of the face of the earth, which he did in the flood, but spared Noah and his family to carry on the human race. So Jesus said people would be carrying on just like in the days of Noah and knew not what is getting ready to happen to them.

Verse 40-42) “Then shalt two be in the field; the one shall be taken and the other left. Two women shall be grinding at the mill, the one shall be taken, and the other left. Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.” When the rapture happens all the saved people will instantly disappear and be taken to Heaven. Can you imagine the shock and chaos this will cause? What if the Pilot and Co-pilot were raptured during their flight?

Verse 43-51“But know this, that if the good man of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meet in due season? Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods. But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; And show began to smite his fellow-servants. and to eat and drink with the drunken; The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he look if 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.” Some people who are raptured will be in shame when they see Jesus. Don’t let it happen to you. Would you like to hear the Lord say to you: “Well done thou good and faithful servant” enter thou into the joy of thy Lord.” ? Then just be a good and faithful servant until the Lord takes you.“And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.” (Daniel 12:2,3) “Lay not up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”  (Matthew 6:19-21).

Say this prayer to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.

Matthew Chapter 24 Part 1 (video & text)

Verse 1, 2) And Jesus went out and departed from the Temple: and his disciples came unto him for to show him the buildings of the Temple. And Jesus said unto them. See ye not all these things? Verily I say unto you. There shall not be left here one stone upon another that shall not be thrown down.” Jesus had just finished blasting the scribes and Pharisees and Sadducees in Matthew chapter 23, telling them that they were hypocrites and blind guides, and serpents, and vipers. Then he left the Temple and his disciples came to him wanting to show him some beautiful buildings that were built as part of the Temple. Jesus told them that there wouldn’t be one stone of the Temple that would not be thrown down. This prophecy from Jesus was fulfilled in 70 A.D. when Titus the Roman General marched on Jerusalem and destroyed the Temple, and when the Temple burned, the gold in the Temple melted through the cracks of the bricks, and Titus ordered his soldiers to take each stone and scrape the gold off. This fulfilled what Jesus predicted. The earthen retaining wall still remains today. It is called the Wailing Wall were Jews go to pray, but was not part of the Temple itself, but it held up the dirt that the Temple area was built upon.

Verse 3 -5) “And as he sat upon the Mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately. saying tell us. when shall these things be? And what shall be the sign of thy coming. and of the end of the world? And Jesus answered and said unto them. Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name. saying, I am Christ and shall deceive many.”Jesus warns us many times not to be deceived. There are so many false religions. And cults, and isms, and false prophets, and false churches, out there trying to deceive people. That is why you really need to know the word so you won’t be carried away by some false doctrine. If they speak not according to this word. it is because there is no light in them.” (Isaiah 8:20b). “But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you. let him be accursed.” (Galatians 1:8).

Verse 6-8) “And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass. but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines. and pestilences, and earthquakes in diverse places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.” The Bible tells us; “But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse. deceiving, and being deceived.” (2 Timothy 3:13). Things are not going to get better as evolution teaches, but worse and worse as evil men are inventing more and more ways to destroy themselves and the world. Jesus doesn’t want you to be worried as things get worse, because that means the return of Jesus is getting closer and closer. Jesus warned us of all these plagues and pestilences that are coming upon the world seemingly out of nowhere even now, such as HIV, SARS, H1N1, Enterovirus, Ebola, zika virus and many other pestilences which are coming upon the world, which is another sign of the end times, along with all the devastating earth quakes we are having around the world like never before. Many of these plagues and pestilences are said to be created by evil men themselves.

Verse 9-12)“Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted. and shall kill you: and you shall be hated of all nations for my namesake. And then shall many be offended. and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise. and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound. the love of many shall wax cold.” Persecution of believers has been around every since Jesus was upon the earth during his public ministry, but it will be getting worse as the anti-christ and his forces try to destroy God’s people and the truth that they teach. These verses are becoming more and more true and fulfilled as the Time of The End draws closer.

Verse 13“But he that shall endure unto the end the same shall be saved.” Some false doctrine teachers try to use this verse to say you can lose your salvation, if you don’t endure unto the end. The fact is, you have to rightly divide the word of truth. (II Timothy 2:15 ). You can’t just take one or two verses and make a whole doctrine out of it. You have to take the whole Bible and all the Scriptures on a particular subject to understand the full meaning of it. Yes those that endure unto the end will be saved and rescued when the Lord appears and takes us up at the rapture, but so will also those that don’t endure because they were killed, or they backslid, and denied the Lord. There are also other things to be saved from besides Hell, like being saved from being raised to everlasting shame and contempt, because of denying the Lord, or not serving him. Everyone who has been saved will be taken up when the Lord appears.

Verse 14) “And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.” This sign is certainly being fulfilled now by satellite, T.V., Radio, word-of-mouth, print, and Internet so that the world will have the message and be without excuse, because there are still many who have not heard the Gospel even once. Why should anyone hear the gospel twice when some have never even heard it once?

Verse 15) “When ye therefore shall see the ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION, spoken of by Daniel the prophet. stand in the holy place, ( whoso readeth, let him understand).” The word “when” is a keyword to remember as we go forth into our study of Matthew Chapter 24. Mark Chapter 13, and Luke Chapter 21 are also accounts of this teaching from Jesus. The ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION is more clearly brought out in our teachings on the book of Daniel, and Revelation. Jesus said,”for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God.” (Luke 16:15b). So this particular abomination is the worst ever of all abominations and it makes all the other abominations desolate in comparison. Also the anti-Christ and the ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION will outlaw and seek to destroy all other religions. It will stand in the Temple. Many believe that the ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION may be some type of a computerized robot image of the anti christ that will speak and cause all who do not worship this image to be killed.( Revelations 13:15).

Verse 6-20) “Then let them which be in Judea flee into the mountains: Let him which is on the house top not come down to take any thing out of his house: Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. And woe unto them that are with child. and to them that give suck in those days! But pray ye that your fight be not in the winter. neither on the sabbath day.” The word “then” is another keyword that goes along with ”when” in verse 15. In other words when you see the ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION standing in the Temple, which will probably be a widely publicized event. Then it is time to flee, especially at this time in Jerusalem. The Jews strictly enforce the Old Testament laws of the Sabbath day, and no travel will be allowed. Also it will be hard for those who are pregnant or have babies at this time.

Verse 21“For then shall be great tribulation such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time. no,nor ever shall be.” The word “then” in this verse is another keyword that goes along with “when” in verse 15, and the word “then” in verse 16. In other words when you see the ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION standing in the Temple, then it is time to flee, and then the great tribulation begins, the last 3 and 1/2 years or 42 months, or 1,260 days. (Remember the Hebrew calendar has twelve 30 day months).

Another Sign Of The End Times

According to an article in Christian Victory, Holiday Inn had a plan to erect a hotel on the Mount of Olives. They sent engineers to survey the hotel site to make preparations for building. Their conclusion was that it couldn’t be done as they found that there was a geological fault under the Mount that is causing it to split.

Some 2,500 years ago the Bible said in Zechariah 14:4 “And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.” This split (possibly caused by a great earthquake) will take place when Jesus Christ returns to earth to put down all evil and rule and reign forever.

The Fault Line in Jerusalem rivals that of the more well known San Andreas Fault in the West Coast of the United States. The European Union has spent millions studying the Fault Line in order to use it for their Political Purposes to divide Jerusalem. As it turns out the worst hit area when an Earthquake occurs will be the so called Temple Mount. Earthquakes have already occurred in Jerusalem. Zechariah mentions the Earthquake that occurred in the days of King Uzziah of Judah. Scientists estimate that this Earthquake was 7.8 to 8.2 on the Richter Scale. An Earthquake in Jerusalem on January 15th, 1546 was 6.7 on the Richter Scale. The last Earthquake was in 1927 and caused the Allenby Bridge to collapse.

There currently is 10 meters of unrelieved stress along the African Rift where the Jerusalem Fault Line occurs. In other words , an Earthquake can occur in Jerusalem in the near future. The Great Rift Valley runs for 3000 miles from Syria down to Mozambique caused by the separation of the African and Eurasian Tectonic Plates.

This is another sign of the End Times. Jesus is coming soon !

Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believed you died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen


The last 7yrs. Starts when the Anti-Christ confirms the Covenant.

(Daniel 9:27)

“And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.”

A covenant is an agreement or a peace treaty. The covenant will bring about the rebuilding of the third Jewish Temple in Jerusalem. If you read our class in on Daniel Chapter 8 you will understand that after the covenant is confirmed there will be 9 months and 25 days before the daily sacrifice begins. Then in the middle of the last 7 yrs, or 42 months after the covenant is confirmed, or 1260 days to be exact, (in The Hebrew Calendar of 12, thirty day months) the Anti-Christ will break the covenant, take away the daily sacrifice, be healed of a deadly wound, or assassinated and the Devil will enter his body and proclaim himself as God, and cause all to worship him and receive his mark, and force the Image of the Beast on people, place the Abomination of Desolation in the Temple. Then begins The Great Tribulation, and the Six Trumpets of the Tribulation.

(Matthew 24:15-31)

“When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) then let them which be in Judea flee into the mountains:  let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: for then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened. Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before. Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together. Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: and then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

(Revelation Chapter 8)

“And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets. And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne. And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel’s hand. And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake. And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood; and the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; and the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise. And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!”

(Revelation Chapter 9)

“And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads. And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment has as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man. And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them. And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men. And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions. And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle. And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months. And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon. One woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more hereafter. And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men. And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them. And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone. By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths. For their power is in their mouth, and in their tails: for their tails were like unto serpents, and had heads, and with them they do hurt. And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.”

The Seventh Trumpet is the Rapture. ( SEE: Revelation Chapter 10) & ( 1 Corinthians 15)

(1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 )

“For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.”

Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believed you died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen


PROPHECY “The Lord thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken;” (Deuteronomy 18:15). FULFILLMENT “Many of the people therefore, when they heard this saying, said, Of a truth this is the Prophet. Others said, This is the Christ. But some said, Shall Christ come out of Galilee? Hath not the scripture said, That Christ cometh of the seed of David, and out of the town of Bethlehem, where David was?”(John 7:40-42). “and he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you:  whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began. For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you. And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people.” (Acts 3:20-23). “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.”(John 3:36). Jesus was both Prophet, High Priest, King Of Kings, and Lord of Lords, The Messiah, and The Only Begotten Son of God.

PROPHECY “Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed?  For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him. He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.” (Isaiah 53:1-3). FULFILLMENT “He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not.”(John 1:10-11). “But though he had done so many miracles before them, yet they believed not on him: that the saying of Esaias the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spake, Lord, who hath believed our report? and to whom hath the arm of the Lord been revealed?”(John 12:37-38). “Then assembled together the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders of the people, unto the palace of the high priest, who was called Caiaphas, and consulted that they might take Jesus by subtilty, and kill him.”(Matthew 26:3-4).

PROPHECY “Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass.”(Zechariah 9:9). FULFILLMENT “And a very great multitude spread their garments in the way; others cut down branches from the trees, and strawed them in the way. And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the Son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest.  And when he was come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, Who is this?  And the multitude said, This is Jesus the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee.”(Matthew 21:8-11).”And they brought him to Jesus: and they cast their garments upon the colt, and they set Jesus thereon. And as he went, they spread their clothes in the way. And when he was come nigh, even now at the descent of the mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen;” (Luke 19:35-37).

PROPHECY “And I said unto them, If ye think good, give me my price; and if not, forbear. So they weighed for my price thirty pieces of silver. And the Lord said unto me, Cast it unto the potter: a goodly price that I was prised at of them. And I took the thirty pieces of silver, and cast them to the potter in the house of the Lord.”(Zechariah 11:12-13). FULFILLMENT “Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot, went unto the chief priests, and said unto them, What will ye give me, and I will deliver him unto you? And they covenanted with him for thirty pieces of silver. And from that time he sought opportunity to betray him.”(Matthew 26:14-16).

PROPHECY “He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living:
for the transgression of my people was he stricken.” ( Isaiah 53:8). FULFILLMENT “When the morning was come, all the chief priests and elders of the people took counsel against Jesus to put him to death: and when they had bound him, they led him away, and delivered him to Pontius Pilate the governor.” ( Matthew 27:1-2).

PROPHECY “He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter ,and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb,so he openeth not his mouth.”( Isaiah 53:7). FULFILLMENT “And the chief priests accused him of many things: but he answered nothing. And Pilate asked him again, saying, Answerest thou nothing? behold how many things they witness against thee. But Jesus yet answered nothing; so that Pilate marvelled.” ( Mark 15:3-5).

PROPHECY “I gave my back to the smiters, and my cheeks to them that plucked off the hair: I hid not my face from shame and spitting.” ( Isaiah 50:6). FULFILLMENT “Then did they spit in his face, and buffeted him; and others smote him with the palms of their hands, saying, Prophesy unto us, thou Christ, Who is he that smote thee?” (Matthew 26:67-68).”And they spit upon him, and took the reed, and smote him on the head.” (Matthew 27:30).”And some began to spit on him, and to cover his face, and to buffet him, and to say unto him, Prophesy: and the servants did strike him with the palms of their hands.” (Mark 14:65). “And they smote him on the head with a reed, and did spit upon him, and bowing their knees worshipped him.” (Mark 15:19).”Then Pilate therefore took Jesus, and scourged him. And the soldiers platted a crown of thorns, and put it on his head, and they put on him a purple robe, and said, Hail, King of the Jews! and they smote him with their hands.” ( John 19:1-3).

Say this prayer to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believe you died on the cross for my sins ,and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.

Who is The Prince of the Covenant, and who is The Anti-Christ ?

Things are moving right along in End Time Bible Prophecy now since Israel became a nation again for the 2nd time in 1948 filling the prophecy in Isaiah Chapter 11. We are definitely in the Time Of The End ! ” But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.” Daniel 12:4. Just the other day Trump declared Jerusalem the Capital of Israel, paving the way for the next step for the Covenant to be written concerning peace between the Jews and the Arabs and confirmed by the Anti-Christ which will then start the last seven years until Jesus comes, and the covenant will allow the 3rd. Jewish Temple to be rebuilt. The Trump administration is working on a covenant or peace treaty now. The Anti-Christ will confirm the covenant, which will start the “Last Seven Years.” see (Daniel 9:27). There are some key people mentioned in Daniel Chapter 11, The Prince of the Covenant, and the Anti-Christ, which are two different people. It sounds like the Prince of the Covenant is the one who is responsible for writing  it up, and the Anti-Christ confirms it, or agrees to it. Putin is in agreement with a peace treaty in Israel. Trump the master negotiator, and deal maker is putting one together. If Trump,or his son in law is not the Prince of the Covenant, and Putin is not the Anti-Christ, someone like each of them will have to soon take their places.

It is absolutely, and extremely important, that you understand when these events took place and the future events that are soon to happen so you can understand the Bible as you read it. Then you can say I know what that passage of scripture is talking about, and then you can accurately explain it to others.“And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.” (II Timothy 2:2). When you understand this class you will know more truth than all the ungodly universities and their professors put together.

1.) 4,220 B.C. Creation, and Adam and Eve. God and Jesus and the Holy Spirit accomplished this great feat in six days not millions or billions of years. You can not believe in the Bible and evolution. ” And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness:and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” Genesis 1:26-27. This date can be calculated by adding up the years in the genealogies recorded in the Bible.(see the Age of the Earth Chart). God spoke creation into existence out of nothing. Adam was created out of the dust of the ground. “And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.” Genesis 2:7.

2.) 2,565 B.C. The great flood. “And Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters was upon the earth.” Genesis 7:6 “And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the water from the waters. And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.” Genesis 1:6-7. “In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeeth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.” Genesis 7:11.The reason some people lived longer back then was because there was a water covering surrounding the earth that filtered out the ultra violet rays of the sun which causes us to age. At the time of the flood God removed it, and let it pour down upon the earth.

3.) 2,212 B.C. The birth of Abraham. ( The empire of Egypt-2100-1491 B.C.)

4.) 1,491 B.C. The Exodus from Egypt of the Israelites.

5.) 1,012 B.C. Construction of the Jewish Temple by Solomon.

6.) 586 B.C. Destruction of Solomon’s Temple by Babylon. ( Babylon’s Empire 606-536 B.C. ).

7.) 457 B.C. Commandment given to restore and build Jerusalem by Artaxerxes King of Persia, at the beginning of the seventy weeks of Daniel Chapter 9. (The Medo-Persian Empire 536-332 B.C.), ( The Empire of Greece 331 B.C.-221 B.C. under Alexander The Great).

8.) 4 B.C. Birth of Jesus Christ. ( The Roman Empire 146 B.C. – 400 A.D.)

9.) 26 A.D. Baptism of Jesus Christ. ( The end of the 69 weeks of Daniel 9.) This is when Jesus Christ the Messiah was anointed by the Holy Spirit to begin his public ministry and be crucified for the sins of the world.

10.) 30 A.D.- Crucifixion of Jesus Christ, and his ascension to Heaven 40 days after he rose from the dead.

11.) 20?? A.D. The Covenant is confirmed by the anit-christ, and the last seven years begins.

12.) 20?? A.D. Three and a half years later the Jews begin their daily sacrifice in the rebuilt temple at Jerusalem (Daniel 8: 13,14).

13.) 20?? A.D. In the middle of the last seven years the anit-christ takes away the Jew’s daily sacrifice, and places the Abomination of Desolation, and proclaims himself God. This event triggers the Great Tribulation, or the last three and one half years, or 42 months, or 1,260 days, or the six trumpets, until Jesus resurrects and raptures the saved. (Daniel 9:27), ( Daniel Chapter 11), (Revelation Chapters 7-9), (Revelation Chapters 11-14). (Matthew 24:15,21,29,30) ( Mark 13, & Luke 21).

14.) 20?? A.D. Jesus appears and resurrects the saved and those still alive on earth and takes us to heaven at the Seventh Trumpet. ( I Thessalonians 4:16,17).

15.) The Marriage Super of The Lamb in Heaven, and the Seven Vials of Gods wrath is poured out upon the earth. This takes place during a 75 day time period. (Daniel 12:13,14) Also see Revelation Chapters 16-19

16.) The Battle of Armageddon. Jesus takes over the world, and destroys the armies of the anti-christ, and Jesus rules the world for 1,000 years. The antichrist is thrown into the lake of fire and the devil is chained and bound and thrown into the bottomless pit. ( a volcano?). (Revelation Chapters 19,20).

17.) After the 1,000 years are over the devil is let loose and goes about to raise an army to fight against Jesus and the saints camped at Jerusalem. This time God rains down fire on them and destroys them.

18.) THE GREAT WHITE THRONE JUDGMENT when all the unsaved dead are resurrected and judged. (Revelation 20.)

19.) God creates a new Heaven and Earth. Then the Heavenly City where God, and Jesus, and the Holy Spirit, and the saved live in paradise comes down on earth forever. ( Revelation Chapters 21 & 22).

Say this prayer to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believed you died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.


We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: “(II Peter 1:19). Peter who walked with Jesus and lived with Jesus and saw him do all his miracles: said that he had a more sure way of believing than all the experiences that he had with Jesus personally. The more sure way of believing that Peter had, and was talking about is fulfilled prophecy. There are over 300 hundred prophecy’s about Jesus in the Old Testament. Here are just a few: “Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.”(Isaiah 7:14). Immanuel means; “God with us”. Jesus was born of a virgin: (Mary).“And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, to a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary. And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women. And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be. And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: and he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end. Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.” (Luke 1: 26-35). “But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.” (Micah 5:2) “NOW when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,” (Matthew 2:1). Daniel Chapter 9 is one of the most important, and amazing prophecy’s proving that Jesus is the Messiah. (see our class on Daniel Chapter 9 ). Isaiah Chapter 53, is all about Jesus. I don’t see how anybody especially a Jewish person can read this chapter and not believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of the living God, the Messiah! Please read, and memorize this chapter, as it will greatly help you and increase your faith. The Jews took this chapter out of their Bible because it is so obvious that it is about Jesus, however when they found the Dead Sea Scrolls in the year 1947 A.D., written down hundreds of years before Christ, Low and behold the 53rd. Chapter was there with the rest of the Book of Isaiah. For some reason the Jewish people are really hard to wittiness to, and you have to really pray for them, because the devil really fights against their salvation. “And not as Moses, which put a vail over his face, that the children of Israel could not stedfastly look to the end of that which is abolished: But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ. But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart. ” (II Corinthians 3: 13-15). The Jews are always quoting that verse in Deuteronomy 6:4 where it says; “Hear, Oh Israel : The Lord our God is one Lord.” However in the Hebrew text which this verse was originally written in, the Hebrew word actually used refers to the plural meaning of Lord, which would be actually saying the Lord’s our God are one. Any time you add “im” on a Hebrew word it makes it plural. Elohim means the plural form of the word God. In other words the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, the Trinity are one in Spirit and Unity, and they are also three different persons. A better English translation would have been the Lord’s our God are one. Jesus said, “I and my Father are one.” (John 10:30). Jesus was not saying he was the Father, but that he was one in unity with the Father as well as the Holy Ghost. “For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost; and these three are one.” (1 John 5:7). Jesus is the Word. “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” (John 1:14),You can actually know Jesus and be closer to him then his disciples were, through studying, and faith in his Word and fulfilled prophecy, and though the Holy Spirit. The 12 disciples didn’t even believe on him (except Peter and possibly James & John) until later in his ministry and after his resurrection, but you can get closer to him by increasing your faith by studying God’s Word, especially Bible Prophecy, a more sure way of knowing, as Peter said. Let these sayings sink down into your spiritual ears of your spiritual being. The Bible is like a great jigsaw puzzle. The purpose of this web site is to help you put the pieces together. Please diligently study all these lessons. “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” (II Timothy 2:15).

Say this prayer to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believe you died on the cross for my sins ,and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.



Thirty-five hundred years ago in the book of Job in the Old Testament, (the first book written in the Bible) God gave us two amazing scientific facts in one verse. Job 26:7 says, “He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing.” One scientific fact is that the earth is hung in space upon nothing. History tells us that man did not know this, but what man did believe about the earth was scientifically in error. The Egyptians, for example, believed that the earth was a saucer held up by four pillars with a ring of mountains around the edge to keep the water from running off. The Greeks believed that the earth rested upon the back of Atlas. Because this theory was so popular and widespread, we still see its effects today. For example, when you obtain a book of maps it is called an Atlas. The Hindus believed that the earth was carried on an elephant’s back and that the elephant was standing on a turtle swimming in a cosmic sea. When Columbus discovered America in 1492 A.D. most people believed the world was flat, and that if you went to far you would fall off into oblivion.“It is He that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers.” (Isaiah 40:22). Reading this scripture is said to have given Columbus the faith to launch out on his epic voyage to discover the New World.Columbus believed this scripture that the earth was a circle, and was not afraid of falling off if he sailed too far. Amazingly the Bible does not include any myths and fairy tales, but simply stated that the earth was hung upon nothing. Science cannot give us a better description than this. Here is another amazing scientific fact. There is an empty place or void in the north of our universe. It was first discovered with the 200-inch telescope on Mount Palomar, California, and is now being studied by three separate observatories across the country. Lucifer (Satan) in his rebellion (when he tried to overthrow God) spoke of this void in the north. “For thou hast said in thine heart, I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the side of the north.” (Isaiah 14:13). This must refer to this empty corridor in the north where there are no stars. Heaven is thought to be originally from there. One fascinating passage is found in Psalms 48:1-2. “Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised in the city of our God, in the mountain of his holiness. Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is Mount Zion, on the sides of the north, the city of the great King.” Without a doubt, this is a reference to the New Jerusalem and not to the earthly Jerusalem. “But you are come unto mount Zion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels” (Hebrew 12:22). “When the Bible says, “Beautiful for situation,” as the verse continues to explain, it is a reference to the fact that the city is or, was originally located in the north of our universe. From “the sides of the north” God has a beautiful overview of the entire universe and of the whole earth. The Heavenly City described in the book of Revelations Chapter 22 is on it’s way to earth, where it will be located forever after the 1000 years,the Millennium. ( See our class on Revelation Chapters 21 & 22). It appears from a study of the Scriptures that Heaven is or was located in the North in our universe. When they would offer the sacrifices in the Old Testament they would offer them northward toward the Lord. Notice what Moses said in Leviticus 1:11, “And he shall kill it on the side of the altar northward before the Lord: and the priests, Aaron’s sons, shall sprinkle his blood round about upon the altar.” The implication is clear that the Lord was at that time in the north. “Northward before the Lord,” says God’s Word. North is always the same direction from this planet no matter what time of day. If you were to point to the north in the morning, twelve hours later you would still be pointing in the same direction. No matter where the earth is in it’s orbit about the sun, north is always the same direction in relationship to the earth. So no matter what time of day or what time of year, north is always the same direction. One day this New Jerusalem will come down from heaven to the new earth according to Revelation 21:1,2. “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.”We saved believers have a home in heaven waiting for us in this Heavenly City, the New Jerusalem. Jesus tells us, “In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there you may be also.” (John 14:2,3).


Say this prayer to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believe you died on the cross for my sins ,and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.
