I was in bed and it was about the same time that I wake up every morning.
Our TV was on and two guests were debating the hearings on Brett Kavanaugh, Pres. Trump’s nominee for a seat on the U.S. Supreme Court.
One guest said, “They don’t really believe those things they are saying. They are just trying to rile up their base.”
I thought: casting the truth to the ground, deceit, false accusations, and hating others are signs that the end of the age is near, and these sins are now an acceptable tactic to “rile up the base” (Dan. 8:12; Matt. 24:4-11; II Tim.3:3).
I got out of bed thinking: it is tragic for our nation, and I have never seen it this bad before.
A host said it is time for the news, and a reporter said Tesla stock plunged more than 6% yesterday following the live appearance of Elon Musk smoking marijuana on a YouTube program the night before.
I thought: that is just one company, but an economic decline and drug use are signs of the Tribulation Period.
That was followed by a story of a panel advising the Texas State Board of Education to stop teaching students that the defenders of the Alamo were “heroic.”
I thought: that is PC nonsense and they are trying to replace patriotism and nationalism with globalism.
I am not against legal immigration, but God created nations and borders, and Satan is behind the World Government movement (Gen. 11).
I realized that it was Saturday morning and the Feast of Trumpets would begin at sundown Sunday night and end at sundown Tuesday night (Israel time); and I asked myself if it was possible that the Rapture could be less than 72 hours from now?
I wondered if anyone would be expecting the Rapture on Tuesday because Jesus said He will come back at a time when no one is expecting it.
It occurred to me that in a couple of hours I would be meeting with friends that love Bible prophecy and I needed to get my mind on what I am going to say.
I went to my desk to look over my notes and saw an article by Rabbi Tuly Weisz.
In essence, Rabbi Weisz said the Creation Story is the first story in the Bible because God wants everyone to know that He created the world, it belongs to Him, and He can do whatever He wants to do with it.
I will add that possibly the second story in the Bible is that Satan corrupted everyone on earth except for eight people, so God destroyed it with a Flood.
God wants us to know that He created this world and He has the power to destroy this world, if He chooses to do so.
Rabbi Weisz noted that another big story that appears early in the Bible is the beginning of the nation of Israel.
God made a covenant that says all of the land of Israel will go through Abraham and the descendants of Isaac, not Ishmael.
So, it doesn’t matter what the world believes because the Creator of the world and the One that destroyed it with a Flood will have the final word, and Israel will get all of the Promised Land even if God has to send the Tribulation Period.
The next note on my list concerned the birth of a red heifer without blemish and spot in Israel, “paving the way for re-establishing the Temple service and marking the final stage of redemption” (provided it is perfect when it becomes 3 years old).
I read that there is speculation that there might not have been a red heifer for the last 2,000 years because God was not ready for the Temple to be rebuilt; but now that a red heifer has been born in Israel, we should ask if our generation is the one that needs one.
A friend and I speculated that this is interesting timing because Israel has been in existence for 70 years, Pres. Trump is pushing his peace proposal, the Battle of Gog and Magog could be looming, a Muslim defeat in the Battle of Gog and Magog could open the door for rebuilding the Temple, etc.
I continued to look at my notes: If Syria uses chemical weapons at Idlib, the destruction of Damascus and the Battle of Gog and Magog could be looming; a 6.7 earthquake in Japan; 9 inches of rain in Manhattan, KS in one night; God said the towns in Israel would be rebuilt, and there are now 1,215 towns in Israel, etc., etc.
God is on the move and people need to be ready.
