The Baby Must Be Born :: By Daymond Duck

Todd Hampson recently wrote, “Most prophecy experts agree that the birth pains began with the rebirth of Israel and have steadily increased since that all-important prophetic event. At some point the baby must be born.”

Below are several reasons to believe that the baby could soon be born.

One, 2020 has arrived, and that means the UN goal (not necessarily God’s goal) of a world government and a world religion by 2030 is just 10 years away.

Two, in recent weeks, there have been several anti-Semitic attacks in the U.S. and a Church of Christ shooting in Texas, prompting one prophecy teacher to declare that “no house of worship in America is safe anymore” (great wickedness, bloodshed and persecution are increasing).

Three, liberals want to disarm America to bring in a world government, and the Governor of Virginia recently threatened to cut off the electricity to homes of people that refuse to surrender their guns.

Officials in some areas are fighting back by declaring their towns, cities and counties “Second Amendment Sanctuaries,” “Constitutional Counties,” etc.

Some Sheriffs in Virginia have talked about deputizing entire communities to protect the Constitutional right of their citizens to bear arms.

Thank God for the lives that were saved by the armed church member at the Church of Christ in Texas.

Four, it is incredible to believe that one-third of the trees will burn during the Tribulation Period (Rev. 8:7), but since August 2019, wildfires in Australia have burned about 15 million acres, killed about 500 million animals, caused the death and destruction of people and property, and the fires are still burning.

Five, it is incredible to believe that there will be a global economic collapse during the Tribulation Period (Rev. 6:5-6), but the U.S. national debt is now more than 22 trillion dollars; and on Dec.31, 2019, the U.S. Treasury Dept. reported that there are about 128,579,000 households in the U.S., and America’s national debt comes to $83,967 per household.

Six, it is incredible that ancient Babylon will be rebuilt and destroyed by fire in one hour, when Iran has almost taken over Iraq (the land of Babylon; Rev.18).

The remainder of this article will be devoted to my thoughts on some of that.

Following several rocket attacks on a U.S. base by Popular Mobilization Units (PMU; Hezbollah-related, Iranian proxy terrorist groups), U.S. Sec. of State Mike Pompeo warned Iran (on Dec. 13, 2019) that “any attacks by Iran or Iranian proxies will be met with a decisive U.S. response.”

Mr. Pompeo’s warning was ignored, and the PMU fired 30 rockets at the U.S. base (on Dec. 27, 2019).

One American contractor was killed and four U.S. soldiers were injured.

On Dec. 29, 2019, the U.S. responded with an attack on 5 PMU bases (3 in Iraq and 2 in Syria) that killed about 25 people and wounded about 55 people including several Iranian officers.

Iran vowed to retaliate, and the U.S. threatened to strike back if Iran did.

On Dec. 31, 2019, a pro-Iranian mob broke into the U.S. embassy in Baghdad, set fires in a reception area, hung a sign on the embassy wall that read “Soleimani is our leader,” and waved several Hezbollah flags on the walls of the embassy.

A nation’s embassy is considered to be that nation’s territory, and an attack on the U.S. embassy in Iraq is no different from an attack on the U.S.

Waving the Hezbollah flag on the U.S. embassy walls is not insignificant.

Pres. Trump said Iran will pay a big price for attacking the U.S., and Gen. Soleimani said, “Washington can’t do anything.”

U.S. Sec. of State Mike Pompeo said, the U.S. is committed to Iraq (the land of Babylon) becoming a free, independent and sovereign state.

Recall that Iraq was once called the land of Babylon; and according to the Bible, it will wind up in the hands of the Antichrist, not Iran.

Understand that Iran needs to be dealt with before the city of Babylon can be expanded to host the one-world religious and economic system (Rev. 17-18).

On Jan. 2, 2020, the U.S. attacked a group of Iranians and PMU terrorists that were meeting at the Baghdad airport in Iraq.

Gen. Soleimani (Iran’s top General) and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis (the Iraqi Commander of the PMU groups that fired rockets at the U.S. base) died in the attack.

Iran promised a harsh retaliation.

U.S. Sec. of Defense Mark Esper said, “The game has changed. Violent acts by Iranian-backed Shiite militias in Iraq will now be met with U.S. military force.”

On Jan. 3, 2020, the U.S. attacked a convoy of PMU terrorist leaders in Iraq, killing 6 and critically wounding 3.

DebkaFile reported that the U.S. now has a new set of goals which is basically: 1) put an end to Iran’s control over the government of Iraq, 2) establish a more mainstream government in Iraq, and 3) put an end to the influence of the terrorists that are trying to take over Iraq.

The birth pains are growing stronger; and at some point, the baby must be born.

The Real World :: By Daymond Duck

Events are constantly happening in the real world that line up with Bible prophecy.

One, Dr. Dave Reagan recently pointed out on the Christ in Prophecy Christmas TV program that the angel Gabriel made seven glorious promises to Mary when he visited her to reveal the birth of Jesus: 1) Mary would conceive and bear a Son; 2) Mary’s Son would be called Jesus; 3) Jesus would be great; (4) Jesus would be called the Son of God; 5) Jesus will be given the throne of David; 6) Jesus will reign over the House of Jacob; and 7) Jesus’ kingdom will never end (Luke 1:31-33).

Dr. Reagan said the first four prophecies were literally fulfilled, so people should expect all seven of them to be literally fulfilled.

The literal interpretation means Jesus will come back to sit on the throne of David in Israel to reign over Israel and this whole earth.

Israel has been re-established as a nation, and some Jews want to re-establish the throne of David in Jerusalem.

Some Christians believe they will accept the Antichrist as their Messiah.

Two, on Dec. 21, 2019, Pope Francis delivered his Christmas message to the Roman Catholic Church and blamed conservative Catholics for getting in the way of the “common good” (world government and world religion).

Pope Francis was urging Catholics to put world government and world religion before the Scriptures.

It is impossible to know if he is The False Prophet, but he fits the description; and setting aside the Scriptures to bring in a world government and world religion is dangerous.

Three, in early Dec. 2019, Iranian proxies fired rockets at the U.S. K-1 military base in Iraq.

On Dec. 13, 2019, U.S. Sec. of State Mike Pompeo warned Iran that any attacks by Iran or Iranian proxies will be met with a decisive U.S. response.

On Dec. 27, 2019, Iranian proxies fired 30 rockets at the U.S. base.

DEBKAfile reported that one American contractor was killed and four U.S. soldiers were injured, prompting urgent consultations with Washington to decide how and when the U.S. will respond.

Two days later, the U.S. struck three Hezbollah (an Iranian proxy) targets in Iraq and two in Syria.

19 people were killed, and several buildings and weapons were destroyed.

Four, at the end of the age, Israel will be an exceedingly great army (Ezek. 37:10).

On Dec. 24, 2019, Israeli Prime Min. Netanyahu was commenting on the Arabs’ warming relations with Israel, and he said it is “the direct result of our policy which has turned Israel into a rising power in the region and the world.”

Five, on Dec. 25, 2019, terrorists in Gaza attempted to assassinate Prime Min. Netanyahu.

He was speaking at a campaign event at Ashkelon when a rocket was fired from Gaza at Ashkelon.

He was rushed off the stage, Israel’s Iron Dome defense system shot down the rocket, and no one was hurt.

Six, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has instructed religious leaders to rewrite the Bible (and the Koran) to teach a pro-communist perspective that conforms with CCP goals.

China has jailed some pastors and refused to allow others to travel abroad.

At least one Church has been ordered to replace paintings of the Virgin Mary and Jesus with images of (CCP) Chairman Xi.

The Church was also ordered to hang Chinese flags and slogans in the Church.

The Church was also told to remove its name from the Church and replace it with a banner that reads, “Follow the party, thank the party, obey the party.”

Older Church members were warned that they could lose their pensions if they continue to worship at the Church.

Recent reports say up to two million Muslims are being re-trained in concentration camps.

During the Tribulation Period, the Antichrist will try to replace the Bible and worship of Jesus with Satan worship.
