Just a Matter of Time :: By Daymond Duck

It is the opinion of this writer that it is just a matter of time until several end-of-the-age prophecies will be fulfilled.

Here are some recent related events that appear to verify this opinion.

One, concerning the return of Israel at the end of the age, on Apr. 14, 2021, Israel’s 73rd Memorial Day on the Hebrew calendar, Israel’s Chief of Staff, Gen. Kokhavi, went to the Western Wall and told the Jewish people that Israel’s return to the Promised Land fulfills a prophecy in the Book of Jeremiah (Jer. 31:15-16).

He said, “We are the generations of sons that returned to their borders. We are back. This time for good.”

According to the Bible, Israel would return to the Promised Land at the end of the age, and they will not be removed again (Amos 9:15).

Two, concerning world government, on Apr. 16, 2021, a group of conservative Republicans announced plans to establish an “America First” caucus in the U.S. House of Representatives.

One Democrat has already called the group “A White Supremacist Caucus,” another said their perspective “hurts the country,” etc.

Globalists hate patriotism, sovereignty of nations, walls on borders, etc.

According to the Bible, there will be a world government at the end of the age (Rev. 13:7).

Three, concerning world government or a borderless world, on Apr. 14, 2021, it was reported that there has been a 380% increase of criminal aliens crossing at the Rio Grande Valley border sector.

According to the Bible, wickedness will increase at the end of the age (days of Noah, Matt. 24:37).

Four, on Apr. 12, 2021, former U.S. Congresswoman, Tulsi Gabbard, was talking about the controversy between Russia and Ukraine when she said, “It is moving in a very dangerous direction.”

Gabbard said, “Hundreds of millions of people dying and suffering, seeing their flesh being burned from bones. This is something you can’t even really imagine.”

One Jewish writer, Adam Berkowitz, thinks she was referring to Zech. 14:12 and the Battle of Gog and Magog in the latter days and latter years, but the quote refers to something worse than Gog and Magog (the Battle of Armageddon).

Nevertheless, Russia has amassed anywhere from 90,000-150,000 troops; more than 300 planes; hundreds of tanks; many helicopters and rocket launchers near Ukraine’s border; and more troops and weapons are on the way.

A Russian official said the nations are “one step away from war.”

About 2 weeks ago, the U.S. announced plans to send two warships to the area; Russia warned the U.S. to stay away, and Biden withdrew the ships.

About that same time, the White House announced “unwavering support for Ukraine,” Russia warned the U.S. to “stay out of the conflict,” “for our own good,” and Biden seemed confused about what to do.

On Apr. 15, 2021, it was reported that Russia has imposed a naval blockade on Ukraine, and Russian troops are preparing to invade the nation.

Perilous times are here, and anything could happen.

Five, on Apr. 19, 2021, it was reported that the U.S. has opened backchannel negotiations with Russia’s ally Iran about dropping U.S. sanctions on Iran and the U.S. restarting talks over the Iranian nuclear deal.

The U.S. expressed its “displeasure” with Israel over some of her recent attacks on Iran (but said nothing about Iranian proxy attacks on Israel).

The conflict between the two nations is growing worse, and Israel continues to let the world know that Israel will not permit Iran to have nuclear weapons.

Despite what the Biden administration says, it continues to act like it is pro-Iran and anti-Israel (restored millions of dollars of U.S. aid to Palestinians; expressed support for Two-State solution, etc.).

It is easy to believe that the U.S. will not defend Israel if the Battle of Gog and Magog breaks out (and that is exactly what God wants so the glory will be His).

Six, concerning Covid, on Apr. 15, 2021, the CDC reported the following facts on people in America that have been fully vaccinated for Covid for more than 2 weeks (cases in first 2 weeks following vaccination not counted).

  • More than 78 million people vaccinated as of Apr. 15, 2021.
  • Despite being fully vaccinated, approximately 5,800 Americans got Covid-19 more than 2 weeks later (about 1 in 172).
  • About 400 required treatment at a hospital (about 1 in 2,500).
  • 74 died (about 1 in a million).
  • CDC officials say these numbers are low, and they are not concerned.
  • Critics say all the side effects are not being reported.

Also, on Apr. 15, 2021, the CEO of Pfizer said fully vaccinated people will likely need a booster shot within 12 months and every year after that.

Also, on Apr. 15, 2021, it was reported that the CDC says Covid cases are increasing in Michigan, and another lockdown is needed.

Citizens need to understand that these vaccines have not been “approved” by the FDA; they are being “allowed” because there is a public health crisis (or a possible hoax is being perpetrated on the public).

Nothing was said about reports that Covid-infected people are crossing the U.S. border with Mexico, and the Biden administration is flying them to many destinations in the U.S. without isolating, treating, or tracking them.

Seven, concerning the decline of America, the Second Coming and the establishment of the Millennial Kingdom on earth, on Apr. 15, 2021, Franklin Graham said what took place in the last U.S. election was wrong; he called for Christians to pray for God to intervene and save the U.S., he condemned the Democrat effort to stack the U.S. Supreme Court, and he called upon people to listen to God and seek His face because the U.S. is in great trouble.

Graham added, “We see the whole world, nation after nation, shut down, and it’s just frightening when you see what’s taking place, but at the same time, I’ve read the last pages of history. I know what God is going to do, and His Son is coming back, and he’s going to establish his kingdom here on this earth.”

Eight, concerning vaccine passports and tracking people, on Apr. 20, 2021, it was reported that Governors in 5 states (Fla., Idaho, Mont., Tex., and Utah) have signed Executive Orders banning mandatory vaccine passports.

Nine, concerning the Covid Crisis and The Great Reset, an Op-Ed in the Activist Post on Apr. 15, 2021, by Brandon Smith expressed some interesting thoughts.

Smith believes:

  • The Covid Crisis and The Great Reset are beginning to sputter (the Covid death rate is less than expected; millions of Americans are refusing to be vaccinated; state legislators are rejecting the enforcement of vaccine mandates, etc.).
  • Conservative Americans have become an obstacle, and perhaps the only obstacle, to the globalist agenda.
  • The globalists are obsessed; they cannot accept failure. They will not let this crisis go to waste, so they will probably try to worsen the Covid Crisis, perhaps create an alternative crisis, start a war, restart the riots in Democrat-run cities, or whatever.

Smith is urging conservative Americans to watch for the globalists to come up with something else to push their agenda, and he is urging conservative Americans to continue to resist global governance.

It is interesting that Smith believes the globalist agenda is sputtering, because most students of Bible prophecy agree that the Antichrist and his world government will be restrained until the Church is Raptured.

This writer does not know what is going on, but the globalists may be trying to get ahead of God’s appointed time, God may be answering prayer to restrain things, He may be giving people more time to be saved, etc.

Finally, if you want to go to heaven, you must be born again (John 3:3). God loves you, and if you have not done so, sincerely admit that you are a sinner; believe that Jesus is the virgin-born, sinless Son of God who died for the sins of the world, was buried, and raised from the dead; ask Him to forgive your sins, cleanse you, come into your heart and be your Saviour; then tell someone that you have done this.
