Unthinkable :: By Daymond Duck

On June 24, Michael Snyder (Author, Speaker, End of the American Dream) wrote:

  • We are closer to the unthinkable than we have ever been, but I have noticed that concern about global war has fallen to an exceedingly low level in the Western world. Many people are just having a good old time as if they didn’t have a care in the world, and meanwhile, global leaders on all sides are dragging us to the brink of destruction.

There is a great article (https://www.raptureready.com/tribulation/) on Rapture Ready by Dr. Thomas Ice, Dr. Harold Wilmington, and Terry James that lists 12 titles of the Tribulation Period.

Here are just 5: The Indignation; Day of God’s Vengeance; The Time of Trouble Such as Never Was; The Great Day of His Wrath; and The Hour of His Judgment.

Just a few undeniable signs that this time of God’s judgment is approaching are:

  • The nation of Israel will come back into being, have a powerful military, be in possession of Jerusalem, be surrounded by enemies, be hated by all nations, and make plans to rebuild the Temple.
  • Nations from the old Roman Empire (the EU) will unite.
  • Knowledge will increase (AI).
  • World government will begin to appear (globalism, the New World Order, the Great Reset by 2030 or sooner, if possible, borders erased, etc.).
  • The technology to identify everyone and track all buying and selling will be coming on the scene (digital ID, digital currency, etc.).
  • Good will be called evil, and evil will be called good (opposing abortion, LGBTQ, etc., is called evil; supporting these evils is celebrated).
  • Russia, Turkey, Iran, and others will become allies and oppose Israel.
  • And many more.

The thing that triggered this article is Michael Snyder’s statement that “Many people are just having a good old time as if they didn’t have a care in the world, and meanwhile, global leaders on all sides are dragging us to the brink of destruction.”

Snyder didn’t say it, but it sounded like something Jesus said:

But as the days of Noe 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 Noe 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 (Matt. 24:37-38).

Before the Great Flood, Enoch (who was Raptured; Gen. 5:24) named his son Methuselah, which some scholars say means, “When he is dead, it (the Great Flood) shall be sent.”

As Enoch was nearing the end of his life (969 years), immorality and wickedness was great on Earth, Enoch’s grandson Noah was building a great Ark, and he was warning people to repent because a Great Flood was coming.

The people ignored the Rapture of Enoch, Noah’s great Ark, and his prophetic warnings.

They lived their lives as though God didn’t exist and nothing bad would happen.

Jesus was saying when the Tribulation Period is approaching, immorality and wickedness will be great on Earth; most of society will ignore the Rapture, the signs, the prophetic warnings, and live their lives as though God doesn’t exist and nothing bad is going to happen.

To most of society, the judgment of God will be unthinkable, and they will not prepare.

Sadly, it is unthinkable to many in the Church and many behind the pulpit, too.

When prophecy is mentioned to some pastors and Church members, they say, “I have heard that all my life. Nothing has changed.”

It is unthinkable that some believe nothing has changed, but they say it.

We are not living in the same world we lived in 10-20 years ago.

(More: Enoch prophesied the Second Coming – Jude 1:14 – And Methuselah was an ancestor of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob or Israel, Mary, and Jesus.)

Here are recent current events that seem to indicate the unthinkable is close:

One, concerning wars and rumors of wars at the end of the age: on June 26, 2024, Israel’s President Herzog said,

  • The international community cannot act surprised if the situation (between Israel and Hezbollah in Lebanon) spirals out of control, as the international community has almost done nothing to contribute to the full security of the residents of Israel despite repeated violations of treaties and international agreements from Lebanon by Hezbollah.

Two, concerning wars and rumors of wars: on June 28, 2024, it was reported that Israeli citizens have been preparing for an Israeli war with Hezbollah in Lebanon for months.

The CEO of a large store that sells tactical and outdoor equipment said:

  • Customers are stocking up.
  • Some gear up with weapons, while others focus on generators, lights, radios, and solar equipment. Many also bought bulletproof gear and tactical wearables. Thousands of generators were bought in the past few months, thousands of shelters were built, and tons of food and other emergency supplies were purchased.

Three, concerning wars and rumors of wars: on June 28, 2024, following Hezbollah rocket and drone attacks on Israel, Israeli jets conducted waves of attacks on several Hezbollah sites in southern Lebanon.

(More: On June 29, 2024, the U.S. and Europe warned Hezbollah to ease up on attacking Israel and to back off to avoid a war with Israel. They believe Hezbollah is powerful but overconfident and unable to prevail over the power of Israel.)

(More: On July 2, 2024, Lebanon notified Israel through a third-party message that it does not want a war with Israel. Israel responded, “We need to return our residents to their homes; if it is not through a diplomatic solution, it will be through war.”

(My comment: No matter how powerful Hezbollah is and who helps them, they are unable to prevail over the power of Israel’s God.)

Four, concerning wars and rumors of wars at the end of the age: on June 28, 2024, following Ukraine’s use of U.S.-supplied weapons that killed 4 Russians and about 150 others in Crimea, Russia summoned America’s ambassador to Russia and informed her that Russia and the U.S. are no longer at peace with each other.

It was not a declaration of war, but it clearly signals a bad turn in the relationship between Russia and the U.S.

Five, concerning the Battle of Gog and Magog in the latter days and latter years: on June 26, 2024, it was reported that Russia and Iran are in the final stages of a “big” treaty (comprehensive bilateral cooperation agreement) that will reflect an unprecedented upswing in their relationship.

This “big” treaty will strengthen their political, trade, and military relationship.

Six, concerning the Battle of Gog and Magog: on June 27, 2024, it was reported that Israel has been practicing long-distance flights and operations for military activity in distant locations, including refueling aircraft and transporting planes and additional military units in case they need to strike Iran.

  • On June 27, Israeli Prime Min. Netanyahu said, “Iran is fighting us on a seven-front war: obviously, Hamas, Hezbollah as well as the Houthis, the militias in Iraq and Syria, the West Bank, and Iran itself.”
  • On June 27, 2024, Netanyahu warned a group of U.S. military officials that Iran is trying to conquer Saudi Arabia.
  • On June 28, 2024, Iran warned that an Israeli attack on Lebanon could lead to a wider war involving all resistance fronts; all of Israel’s enemies, as in Psa. 83.
  • On July 1, 2024, a senior Iranian official said Iran’s next attack on Israel will lead to complete victory.
  • On July 2, 2024, Iran said it will throw all its military power behind Hezbollah if Israel launches a full-scale attack on Hezbollah in Lebanon.
  • On July 2, 2024, Russia said if Israel sells Patriot air defense systems to Ukraine, there will be certain political consequences.

(More: Iran is trying to overthrow the government of Jordan – a Psa. 83 nation – to make this an eight-front war. But, even if Iran doesn’t succeed in toppling the king of Jordan, there are terrorist groups in Jordan that are operating against Israel.)

Seven, concerning the fact that Israel cannot be defeated: on June 27, 2024, Bible prophecy expert Amir Tsarfati wrote:

  • Things are escalating in the north. Yes, we have political turmoil. Yes, my region of the world is chaotic. However, none of these realities change the fact that the promises of God are sure. God initiated my blessed country through Abraham. He rescued it through Moses. He restored it through Joshua. He preserved it through David. He rebirthed it from the ashes of the Holocaust, and He’s going to do an amazing work in my people in the future, just as He promised through the prophets and New Testament authors.

Eight, concerning deceit and animosity toward Israel: on June 30, 2024, the chair of the U.S. Foreign Affairs Committee (Michael McCaul) said the Biden administration has held up the transfer of 7 weapons systems to Israel.

Iran has significantly increased its shipments of weapons to Hezbollah in Lebanon, and Biden is delaying the shipment of weapons to Israel.

(My opinion: With God on Israel’s side, Israel will win with or without the U.S. Denying the weapons systems could mean that Israel will use bigger and more destructive weapons.)

Nine, concerning world government: last week, I reported that Klaus Schwab said this at the World Economic Forum (WEF) meeting in Dalian, China on June 25, 2024:

  • To drive future economic growth, we must embrace innovation and force the collaboration across sectors, regions, nations, and cultures to create a more peaceful, inclusive, sustainable, and resilient future.

I specifically urged readers to notice that Schwab wants to:

  • Force all regions, nations, and cultures to collaborate with the agenda of unelected globalists.

This week (on July 1, 2024), it was reported that UN Sec. Gen. Guterres wants the UN to adopt a set of Global Principles for Information Integrity that will allow nations to:

  • Take immediate action to address the harm caused by misinformation, disinformation, and hate speech.

In my words, Guterres wants to monitor the media, online platforms, individuals, and others to silence all opposition to the globalist agenda (silence all opposition to the globalist desired New World Order, one-world religion, tracking all buying and selling, the gay agenda, Covid-19 jabs, to what they want citizens to eat, etc.).

(More: On July 1, 2024, Keisha Bottoms, a senior advisor for Biden’s presidential campaign, criticized The Atlantic Journal-Constitution – Georgia’s largest newspaper – for election interference, for criticizing debate performance.)

(More: When it was established that the Biden administration was conspiring with liberal social media networks – YouTube, Facebook, etc. – to censor users, Texas and Florida passed laws to prevent the censorship from happening. The networks sued to have the laws struck down. On July 1, 2024, the U.S. Supreme Court refused to strike them down.)

(My opinion: Removing all opposition to a godless satanic world government will result in the rise of an evil government and the most disastrous 7 years of human history.)

Ten, concerning natural disasters increasing in frequency and intensity at the end of the age: on July 2, 2024, it was reported that the development of a Category 5 hurricane on or before July 4 is unprecedented, but Hurricane Beryl has appeared and broken the record for earliest Category 5 hurricanes by 15 days.

Brian McNoldy, a hurricane expert at the Univ. of Miami, said, “This storm continues to break records, ravage the Caribbean region, and stun scientists like me.”

Citizens in Mexico and on the western U.S. Gulf Coast need to monitor this record-breaking storm.

FYI: God does not send anyone to Hell (all of us are born with a sin nature and destined to go to Hell because we sin), but God has provided a way (Jesus) for everyone to go to Heaven (and He is the only way to get there; John 14:6).

Finally, are you Rapture Ready?

If you want to be rapture ready and 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.
