The Two Witnesses of Revelation - by Jeff Van Hatten -
Scripture tells us that there are two witnesses who will testify and prophesy for three and one-half years (1,260 days) during the first half of the tribulation period whose primary purpose is to testify to Yeshua and denounce the Antichrist or Beast. Both witnesses are also able to cause the rain to stop and defend themselves with fire.
Have you ever wondered who the two witnesses of Revelation 11 might be? If so, you are in good company. Lately, there have been many that have tackled this subject, concluding that the two witnesses are two human beings. Favorites are Moses and Elijah, followed by Enoch and Elijah. But what if the two witnesses are not even human? Let's take a look at the possibilities:
Revelation 11:3-4 - "And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy one thousand two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth. These are the two olive trees and the two lamp stands standing before the God of the earth."
Human Death
Hebrews 9:27 - "It is appointed for humans to die once and after this comes judgment."
Scripture tells us that there are only two types of death. The first type is the death of the body when the soul is either assigned to Sheol [Hell] or ascends to be with Yeshua (Philippians 1:23). Most human's bodies only die a physical death once, but there are some who have physically died more than once. Lazarus is one example scripture gives us (John 11:43), and many have experienced what is called "Near Death." This first type of death is only temporary, as all will be resurrected.
Each human, once resurrected, will then be assigned to live eternally with Yahweh and Yeshua on the New Earth or in the New Jerusalem, or will be consigned to eternal death in the Lake of Fire. The second type of death is permanent.
Human Witnesses
Let's examine the possibilities of who those two witnesses may be, if they indeed be human beings:
Malachi 4:5 - "I will send to you Eliyahu the prophet before the coming of the great and terrible Day of Yahweh."
Elijah is considered to be the premier candidate for one of the two witnesses, as he would clearly represent the Prophets and/or the Jews for those who contend that the two witnesses portray either the Law and the Prophets, or the Gentiles and the Jews. As far as we are aware, he has never physically died, having been taken alive into heaven. Yeshua states that Elijah must come before the terrible and great day of the Lord, as prophesied in Malachi 4:5. He stood before Yahweh and stopped the rain from falling (1 Kings 17:1) and also was able to call fire down from heaven (2 Kings 1:10).
Elijah is considered to be the premier candidate for one of the two witnesses.
Deuteronomy 34:4-7 - "Moses the servant of Yahweh died there in the land of Moab, and was buried in the valley across from Beth-Peor."
Moses has only physically died once, as far as we are aware. Scripture clearly tells us that he died and was buried by Yahweh (Deuteronomy 34:4-7). His candidacy for being one of the two witnesses is based on the assumption that the two witnesses portray the Law and the Prophets. Moses, therefore, would represent Law. He also had the ability to turn water into blood and the power to plague the earth (Exodus 7:14-21), which the two witnesses will also be able to do. Matthew 17:3, Mark 9:4 and Luke 9:30 tell us that both Moses and Elijah appeared before Yeshua just prior to his crucifixion and resurrection.
Adding these three passages to the many scriptures above cause many to contend that Moses and Elijah are the two witnesses of Revelation.
Genesis 5:24 - "Enoch walked with God, and he was not, for God took him."
Hebrews 11:5 - "By trusting, Enoch was taken away from this life without seeing death."
Enoch's primary qualification for being one of the two witnesses stems from his having been taken alive into heaven (Genesis 5:24 and Hebrews 11:5). He would portray Grace, for those who contend that the two witnesses portray Law and Grace. The first, second, and third century Church Fathers believed that Enoch would be the second witness to accompany Elijah.
Many others contend that the two most likely candidates are Enoch and Elijah. Both were men of righteousness who were raptured to Heaven alive, never having to experience the first death. Both were prophets. Enoch was a Gentile and Elijah was a Jew.
Amos 3:7 - "Surely Yahweh does nothing unless he reveals his secret counsel to his servants the prophets."
Scripture does not give us any indication that either Enoch or Moses are prophesied to return before the Day of the Lord. If either or both are one of the two witnesses, surely scripture would tell us clearly that they are.
Scripture does, however, indicate that Elijah is to return before the Day of the Lord. His mission: He will turn the heart of fathers to their sons, and the heart of sons to their fathers (Malachi 3:23-24). But wait; Yeshua clearly states that Elijah has already come! He says in Matthew 11:14 and 17:12, "If you are willing to accept it, John is Elijah, whose coming was predicted," then indicates that he will indeed come again, next time to restore all things (Matthew 17:11).
Further, at death, Moses was buried in the valley across from Beth-Peor in the land of Moab (Deuteronomy 34:6) - he did not go directly to heaven to stand in Yahweh's presence! Yeshua confirmed this by saying to Nicodemus: "No one has gone up into heaven; there is only the one who has come down from heaven, the Son of Man" (John 3:13). This means that he was not standing in Yahweh's presence when Zechariah's prophecy was given!
Humans who died before Yeshua was born were buried and were in the portion of Sheol called "Paradise," or "Abraham's Bosom." They did not ascend to Heaven to stand before Yahweh!
Non-Human Witnesses
Let's examine the possibilities of who those two witnesses may be, if they indeed be someone other than humans:
Revelation 11:4 - "These are the two olive trees and the two lamp stands standing before the God of the earth."
The two witnesses stand before Yahweh.
They will be clothed in sackcloth, a symbol of humbleness, which today might easily be similar to denim - a tough, durable fabric that could stand up for three years of service.
The two witnesses have the power to destroy their enemies with fire from their mouths, control the weather, turn water into blood, and cause plagues.
They will be killed in Jerusalem, and their bodies will lie in the street for three and one-half days.
They will be resurrected and ascend into heaven while all the world watches.
Zechariah 4:14 gives us further insight into who the two lamp stands may be. They are the "two anointed ones who are standing by the Lord of the whole earth." Isaiah 6:1-7 gives us another picture of who these beings are who stand beside Yahweh: "In the year of King Uzziah's death I saw Yahweh sitting on a high, lofty throne! The hem of his robe filled the temple. Seraphim stood over him, each with six wings - two for covering his face, two for covering his feet and two for flying." 1 Kings 6:23 tells us "In the inner sanctuary Solomon made two cherubim of olivewood, each ten cubits high," and 1 Kings 6:32 tells us "He covered the two doors of olivewood with carvings of cherubim, palm trees, and open flowers."
In both the Revelation and the Zechariah accounts, we see the same thing. The two olive trees were "two witnesses" or "two anointed ones" standing before Yahweh, and Isaiah and 1 Kings tell us who they are. So does the Ark of the Covenant. The two who sat at either end of the Ark were Cherubim, another name for the Seraphim! These may very well be the same two "angels" who accompanied Yahweh when He came down to investigate Sodom and Gomorrah (Genesis chapters 18-19).
The two witnesses are never called sons of Adam, nor are they called human beings; scripture simply calls them lampstands and olive trees! We also noted that they have power to kill with fire from their mouths, and ascend into heaven while all the world watches. Not typically behavior demonstrated by humans, eh?
The two lampstands are the two Seraphim or Cherubim, carved of olive wood on the Temple doors and in the inner sanctuary - the Holy of Holies!
Those Who Called Fire Down from Heaven
Many have called down fire from heaven, but scripture never states that they breathe fire from their mouths. There are humans who have called down fire, and two who wanted to call down fire, but Yeshua did not allow them to do so. Even a beast who comes up from the earth calls down fire. They are:
Exodus 9:23 - Moses: Yahweh sent thunder and hail, and the fire ran along upon the ground.
2 Kings 1:10, 12, 14 - Elijah: prayed, and fire came down from heaven and consumed the captain and his fifty.
1 Chronicles 21:26 - David: called upon Yahweh, and fire from heaven came down upon the altar of burnt offering.
2 Chronicles 7:1 - Solomon: finished praying, then fire came down from heaven and consumed the burnt offering.
Revelation 13:13 - The Second Beast: makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men.
Luke 9:54 - James and John: wanted to because the people of the village did not welcome Yeshua, but did not!
True Fire-Breathing Beings
Revelation 11:5 - "If anyone desires to harm them, fire proceeds out of their mouth and devours their enemies."
Job 41:18-21 - "From Leviathan's mouth go flaming torches; sparks of fire leap out. Out of its nostrils comes smoke, as from a boiling pot and burning rushes. Its breath kindles coals, and a flame comes out of its mouth."
Isaiah 27:1 - "In that day the LORD with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and he shall slay the dragon that is in the sea."
Scripture only gives the ability to breathe fire from their mouth to Leviathan. And Leviathan is synonymous with the serpent, the snake, the sea monster, and the dragon. All apt descriptions of Lucifer, or Satan. And guess to what genus, phylum, and order Satan belongs: the order of Seraphim, or Cherubim!
Is Revelation giving us yet one more hint that the two witnesses are not human, but also of the genus, phylum, and order of Seraphim, or Cherubim? I say it is. What do you say?
The Hebrew Words
The Hebrew word translated dragon is tannı̂yn [תַּנִּין H8577]. It means: Dragon, serpent, sea monster, river monster, or venomous snake.
The Hebrew word translated Serpent is nâchâsh [נָחָשׁ H5175]. It means: Serpent, or snake.
The Hebrew word translated Leviathan is livyâthân [לִוְיָתָן H3882]. It means: Sea monster, or dragon.
The Ability to Kill the Witnesses
Revelation 11:7 - "When they have finished their testimony, the beast that comes up out of the abyss will make war with them, and overcome them, and kill them."
Scripture indicates that neither of the two witnesses can be killed by a human being. Only the beast can do so. The timing of their murder is at about the mid-point of the tribulation period; at about the same time that Satan, former chief of the Seraphim, is allowed to indwell the Antichrist. And the Antichrist, also referred to as the beast, is able to kill the two witnesses.
There is an old saying: "It takes a thief to catch a thief." Perhaps it takes a Seraph to kill a Seraph, eh? Is Revelation giving us yet one more hint that the two witnesses are not human, but also of the genus, phylum, and order of Seraphim, or Cherubim? I say it is. What do you say?
Death of The Witnesses
Hebrews 13:2 - "Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by this some have entertained angels without knowing it."
Scripture indicates that neither of the two witnesses can be killed by a human being. Only the beast can do so at about the mid-point of the tribulation period; at about the same time that Satan, former chief of the Seraphim, is allowed to indwell the Antichrist. Can angels, Seraphim, or Cherubim become human and thus be subject to death and resurrection? Yeshua, who is God, came in human form, died a physical death, and was resurrected! Have we forgotten this? Scripture gives us many examples of angels who have taken on human form and interacted with human beings. Could the two witnesses be Seraphim / Cherubim who may come in human form, are killed, and are then resurrected? Perhaps so!
Matthew 12:25, Luke 11:17 - "Any kingdom divided against itself is laid waste; and any city or house divided against itself will not stand."
Satan, too, was a Cherubim / Seraphim. Have we forgotten this? How appropriate and fitting that Yahweh might use two members over whom Satan once had authority to divide his house and lay it waste! Are these witnesses in truth dragons who do not lose their ability to breathe fire from their mouths, even in human form? Perhaps so!
The Ascension into Heaven
Revelation 11:7 - "I heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, 'Come up here!' They went up into heaven in the cloud, and their enemies saw them."
Once again, we see a "rapture" or a going up into heaven witnessed by many, just as Enoch, Elijah, and Yeshua were witnessed going up.
Revelation makes no mention that the two witnesses are carried up to heaven, as was Elijah - they simply went up. If they are Seraphim, then they can easily fly up to heaven using their own wings!
Is Revelation giving us yet one more hint that the two witnesses are not human, but also of the genus, phylum, and order of Seraphim, or Cherubim? I say it is. What do you say?
Can Heavenly Beings Die?
Isaiah 28:10 - "Precept by precept, precept by precept, line by line, line by line, a little here, a little there."
Matthew 10: 28 - "Do not fear those who kill the body but are powerless to kill the soul. Rather, fear him who can destroy both soul and body in Gei-Hinnom."
Psalm 82:1 - "Elohim has taken his place in the divine assembly; he judges among the gods."
Psalm 82:6-7 - Yahweh says to the gods: "My decree is: 'You are gods, sons of the Most High all of you. Nevertheless, you will die like mortals; like any prince, you will fall.'"
Pastors, especially sharp pastors who know their Greek and Hebrew, and who know scripture from beginning to end, or should I say from aleph to tav, are a blessing to all. One major objection has been raised by just such a pastor to the question: "Can an angel, seraph, or cherub really be killed." So, can heavenly beings die? Indeed, they can. My thinking on this stems from several scriptures, but primarily from: Isaiah 28, Psalm 82, and Matthew 10.
One must combine several concepts throughout scripture to make the above comment that a heavenly being can be killed while on earth, whether in human form or not.
 Matthew 10 tells us that Yahweh can destroy not only bodies, but souls as well. The real question is: Does this apply to heavenly beings that may or may not take on human form? I say perhaps so!
 Psalm 82 makes it very clear that the heavenly beings, here called gods and Sons of the Most High, can indeed die like a mortal human being, if Yahweh makes that decision.
The Two Witnesses will one day be revealed. The Two Witnesses may (or may not) be in human form during their three-year stint here on earth. I am not sure it makes any difference, and I am not dogmatically stating that the Two Witnesses are Seraphim, but Revelation gives us some very strong hints that they may indeed be the two Seraphim that stand before Yahweh.
If so, then they are of the genus, phylum, and order of Seraphim, or Cherubim - the same genus as Satan. If so, they may take on human form when they come to testify of Yeshua and denounce the Antichrist or Beast. In their earthly form, do they, too, face death and resurrection just as did Yeshua? Perhaps so! With Yahweh, all things are possible.
When the Two Witnesses are killed, however, it is my contention that it is only their bodies that die just as it is only a human's body that dies; their spirit lives on. Three days after the Two Witnesses' bodies are killed, their spirits re-enter their bodies, the bodies resurrect, and they rise into heaven using their own wings to do so.
Revelation hints that the two witnesses are not human, but are of the genus, phylum, and order of Seraphim, or Cherubim. What do you say?

Foreign-Policy Experts Predict Iranian Attack On Israel Just A Matter Of Time - By Israel Kasnett -
As Iranians took to the streets this week to commemorate 40 years since the U.S. embassy takeover in 1979, Iran announced new violations of the nuclear deal it signed in 2015.
The rogue Islamic Republic admitted that it now operates 60 advanced IR-6 centrifuges and is working on a new type of centrifuge that will work 50 times faster than what is currently permitted under the deal.
This announcement comes after Iran has engaged in attacks on oil tankers and Saudi oil facilities, shooting down an American drone, and, of course, its ongoing and aggressive efforts to build a war machine against Israel in Syria and elsewhere.
For its part, on Monday the U.S. Treasury Department announced new sanctions against nine Iranian military commanders and officials. U.S. President Donald Trump withdrew from the nuclear deal with Iran in May 2018 and reimposed tough sanctions in an effort to curb the regime's destabilizing behavior in the Middle East and around the globe.
Regardless, Tehran has continued to engage in destabilization efforts and heavily supports terror activity and weapons buildup in the Middle East.
Yaakov Amidror, a former national security advisor to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and currently an analyst at the Jerusalem Institute for Strategy and Security and a fellow at the Jewish Institute for National Security of America, told JNS that the Iranians want to remain far away from the Jewish state, but at the same time build "a ring of fire" around it.
Iran supports Hezbollah in Lebanon and the terror organization is estimated to have as many as 100,000 missiles. Iran is also trying hard to create an independent war machine in Syria, which Israel has been working to dismantle. According to foreign and some Israeli reports, Israel has struck 300 targets in Syria so far.
According to Amidror, Iran realized that Israel has been succeeding in Syria, so it began to build a branch of its independent war machine in Iraq, taking advantage of the fact that the Iraqis don't have total control of some parts of their land. For Iran, the idea is to have a military capability close to Israel, while it itself remains at a distance.
"An interesting question," Amidror said, "is what should Israel's reaction be in such a situation? We know the head of the snake is in Iran. Will Israel go after targets in Syria, Iraq, Lebanon or Yemen? Or will we go directly to the head of the snake?"
Iran has the capability to attack Israel from multiple locations, including Lebanon and Syria--and now Iraq and possibly Yemen--as Netanyahu mentioned recently.
'This will be complicated'
Eytan Gilboa, professor and director of the Center for International Communication at Bar-Ilan University in Ramat Gan and a senior research associate at the BESA Center for Strategic Studies, told JNS that a number of elements have changed recently that impact Israel's preparedness and decision-making.
First, Iran attacked the Saudi oil fields. Second, the United States withdrew from Syria. And third, Iranian provocations in the Persian Gulf were not met with any aggressive American answer.
"We also see Islamic Jihad in Gaza, on orders from Iran, trying to sabotage and undermine the situation there," he said.
Like Amidror, Gilboa noted that Israel has been trying to prevent Iran from building another front in Syria, saying "this strategy has been extended to Iraq."
He laid out the current state of affairs from Israel's perspective. According to Gilboa, "it is obvious, for all kinds of reasons, that Iran would not attack Israel directly from its own territory. Iran lost some of the surprise that could have been inflicted on Israel had it not used cruise missiles against Saudi Arabia."
Israel is preparing adequate answers to this kind of threat as it expects Iran to attack it with precision-guided cruise missiles and drones.
Gilboa suggested that the components of Israeli strategy must first be to reveal Iran's plan. Then, Israel must threaten direct and severe retaliation. Finally, Israel must make it clear that Syria and Lebanon will pay the price if attacks on Israel originate on their soil.
"If Iran orders Nasrallah to attack Israel, this will be complicated," said Gilboa. "In the 2006 Second Lebanon War, Israel distinguished between the Lebanese Army and Hezbollah. This is no longer the case. If Israel comes under attack, it will attack Lebanon, including Hezbollah. The same is true for Syria. Israel is trying to persuade [Syrian President] Basher Assad and Russia that if Israel comes under attack from Syria, it is Assad who will pay the price."
Additionally, continued Gilboa, Israel must inform Russia of potential Israeli action after any attack by Iran. "These exchanges of fire between Israel and Iranian attempts to build a base in Syria is completely not in Russia's interest, and this is why Russia is not protesting Israeli military actions in Syria," he said.
Israel should work to procure an American statement of support and must coordinate with the United States to announce that attacks on Israel will trigger American action.
"On the face of it," Gilboa said, "these components should create some level of deterrence. Israel's main strategy is to create deterrence or at least limit any potential Iranian attack."
If Iran does indeed attack, there will have to be a massive retaliation against Iranian interests.
According to Gilboa, Europe should not be expected to join in the fight against Iran's hegemonic ambitions and support of global terrorism. They are "stupid and deaf," he charged, and only trying to appease Iran.
Both Amidror and Gilboa agree that Iran is certainly bent on Israel in its crosshairs.
"Confrontation between Iran and Israel is unavoidable," said Gilboa. "There is great probability for some Iranian military action; this is something Israel is preparing for."
"Our assumption," said Amidror, "is not a question of if, but when."

Nearing Midnight; The Late Great State of California - Todd Strandberg -
No other state outranks California in the prosperity of people and financial wealth. With 39.6 million residents, California is the most populous U.S. state and the third-largest by area. California's economy, with a gross state product of $3.0 trillion, is larger than that of any other U.S. state and is the largest sub-national economy in the world. If it were a country, California would be the fifth-largest economy in the world.
The Golden State has recently lost its luster in some profoundly karmic fashion. In the richest urban areas, there is a growing homeless problem with tent compounds, used needles, and human excrement on the doorstep of million-dollar homes. Because everything is so expensive, California has the highest poverty rate in America. Here in Arkansas, we spend $2.25 for a gallon of gasoline; in California, some people are paying $4.49 per gallon.
California's notoriety as the nation's most impoverished state doesn't stem from a lack of programs designed to alleviate poverty. The state is currently spending hundreds of millions on the homeless crisis. San Francisco is on the verge of havoc generated by a homeless population, which is roughly 1% of the total populace (around 9,000 homeless and a total population of 860,000.) The problem could easily double or triple.
It's obvious that California is going down the drain because it has political leaders like Nancy Pelosi and Maxine Waters. I recently read about a Rep. Katie Hill who had to quit because she had an inappropriate sexual relationship. The California voters decided it would be nifty to elect the first bisexual congresswoman. A couple years later, a video of Hill shows up in a British newspaper that has her naked in an adulterous situation with a female staffer; they are smoking pot, and Hill has Nazi tattoos on her body. The only reason she had to resign was because of a House rule barring members from sleeping with their subordinates.
I had given up on California when it decided to return former Governor Jerry Brown to the office that earned him the title 'Governor Moonbeam' in the 1970s. When Brown was forced to step down by term limits, the voters replaced him with Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom. He came from the Bay Area, which guarantees that Sacramento would stay focused on a culturally liberal agenda.
The most glaring indication that California has lost its way are the power blackouts. Over the past month, more than three million people have lost power across California as part of a deliberate blackout by utility PG&E Corp, which is designed to keep power lines from igniting wildfires. PG&E's equipment was identified as the cause of the Camp Fire in November 2018 that killed 86 people and destroyed the town of Paradise. It was the deadliest blaze in California history.
Another major blaze has already erupted, and the now bankrupt PG&E is facing an uncertain future. The company is already saddled with an estimated $30 billion in liabilities. PG&E's stock price has gone from a recent high of $70.38 to a low last week of $3.55. California has truly reached a third-world status when the wind speed determines if your home is going to have electrical power.
A recent poll of the state's registered voters by Cal's Institute of Governmental Studies revealed that half have considered leaving the state. The top reason was the high cost of housing, high taxation, and crime. Many people are leaving California, but the inflow of illegal migrants keeps the numbers fairly balanced, resulting in a net population loss of only 38,000 for 2018. With many of the millions of migrants taking advantage of California's welfare system, the state will someday run out of money.
I'm sure most Californian's still love their cities. It is a land of some of the most glorious wealth on the planet. There have been many songs written about the state, but the only one that is still appropriate is the sinister theme of the Eagles "Hotel California." The dream of heaven on earth has turned into a hellish nightmare. Unlike in the song, believers in Christ have the ability to check out and leave the socialist mess that will eventually sweep over all 50 states.
"For this world is not our permanent home; we are looking forward to a home yet to come. Therefore, let us offer through Jesus a continual sacrifice of praise to God, proclaiming our allegiance to his name" (Hebrews 13:14-15).

Can Donald Trump Save America? - A Visible Picture of Our Doomed Nation is Worth a Thousand Words! - David Pepe -
Could Edward John Smith save the Titanic? We know from history that tragically he never could have. The ship was doomed and no optimistic appraisals nor remedies could have saved that doomed wounded ship from its final demise. Now, can Donald Trump save America (View this post's title image above)? Well, that is the question that at least half of America is asking themselves and with blind delusional optimism, many think that he can. Tragically, many today are beyond clueless to America's incurable ills which are at its EXPONENTIAL zenith! In these American's minds, their delusional optimistic, no depth appraisals and ignorant evaluations have zero objective perspectives of our nation's EXPONENTIAL growing depths of depravity, lawlessness, and societal ills that can NEVER be reversed or overturned! As the Titanic was minutes before her doom, so is our nation at present! I know that this objective biblical diagnosis will not be well received, but you must hear it and see it! My dear friends, even if George Washington, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Benjamin Rush, Abraham Lincoln, Ronald Reagan, and all our Founding Fathers were to come back today from the dead and run for political office; even they themselves could not stop the EXPONENTIAL rot of our nation, culture, and society. We are FULLY past the point of no return! These great men of our past in today's day would be demonized continually by the god of this world's lawless EXPONENTIAL media outlets and the lawless kool-aid drinking masses who drink it all in! The bottom line in all of this is that the Day of the Lord is at hand but who will have ears to hear it (Rev. 6-19)! Everything in our world and U.S. culture points to it with huge neon lights, yet we are more than willing NOT to face this reality for fear of what is to come. We as a nation are no different than an old rich and prosperous man not willing to think about his soon pending death, who lives out each remaining day to the fullest, rejecting all reality and evidence that he has an ETERNAL Divine appointment with his ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Creator which none can stop (Heb. 9:27)!
To the unbelieving patriot scoffers out there who disagree with our objective Biblical perspective, let me ask you some brief simple questions and let me know what you think? America on the surface may seem salvageable but that is a delusion and an illusion! Inside and underneath our nation is rotting away and our societal foundations are at present beyond fractured and ready to implode! I thank Almighty God for President Trump! He is America's Cyrus for Almighty God's outworking and Providence, but he is just a man who - by Almighty God's grace - is holding back a very fractured dam; which has been holding back years of EXPONENTIAL irreversible consequences! It is my personal opinion that President Trump's presidency is America's last call for all Americans to repent and be saved and to protect Israel at present. The legions of demonic implanted 5th column Marxist Americans who are embedded and occupy our nation's three branches of government and our U.S. bureaucracy (national, state, local) is an army that we cannot remove by voting. These are well embedded and are daily destroying our nation's foundations as the seawater which flooded the Titanic and brought her to her doom and final demise!
My dear subjective and delusional friends, if we are to evaluate our day with an objective biblical perspective, we can only come to the right conclusion; that in light of our EXPONENTIAL technological age; where everything in our global society is moving at supersonic speeds; we must see the world's soon demise and implosion by EXPONENTIAL lawlessness, war, pestilence, and famine; for indeed the Day of the Lord is at the door and the Four Horsemen about to ride (Rev. 6-19)! While today's America and the world are crying for "peace and safety" and godless utopian delusions; the day will soon come - after the Rapture of the Church and the Four Horsemen's HORRIFIC ride - that the godless world will know then without a shadow of a doubt; that the Day of the Wrath of the Lamb is now at hand and His return to judge the world in RIGHTEOUSNESS is at inevitable (Rev. 19:11-21)!
My dear subjective and delusional friends, if we are to evaluate our day with an objective biblical perspective, we can only come to the right conclusion; that in light of our EXPONENTIAL technological age; where everything in our global society is moving at supersonic speeds; we must see the world's soon demise and implosion by EXPONENTIAL lawlessness, war, pestilence, and famine; for indeed the Day of the Lord is at the door and the Four Horsemen about to ride (Rev. 6-19)! While today's America and the world are crying for "peace and safety" and godless utopian delusions; the day will soon come - after the Rapture of the Church and the Four Horsemen's HORRIFIC ride - that the godless world will know then without a shadow of a doubt; that the Day of the Wrath of the Lamb is now at hand and His return to judge the world in RIGHTEOUSNESS is at inevitable (Rev. 19:11-21)!
"And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together, and every mountain and island were moved out of their places, And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?" Rev. 6:14-17
Tragically, it will be this complete abandonment of social morals that will be America's final demise and my dear friend we are already there! This nation - due to her EXPONENTIAL abandonment of moral absolutes and the soon coming Rapture of the body of Christ - will finally implode on herself, thus opening the door to the entrance of the Four Horsemen and the dreaded Day of the Lord (Rev. 6-19). My dear friends, it is absolutely crucial for all individuals to be sure that they personally know the Savior of this doomed and fallen world (John 1:12, 3:16-17, 1 John 5:10-13). This world is headed into the final showdown between lawlessness and RIGHTEOUSNESS. Between Lucifer; the fallen angelic creature and the ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS GOD and CREATOR of ALL (Rev. 16:13-16).
My dear friends, the Kingdom of Heaven is TRULY at hand!


Daily Jot: Deep State Election Security Uh Huh - Bill Wilson -
Election results were coming in from states that hold off year elections. The bottom line-Virginia continued its move to the left by putting Democrats in charge of both state houses and the governor's mansion; North Carolina and Mississippi solidified Republican officeholders; and Kentucky was a mixed bag, but the trend was very conservative. Through all this, the Federal government felt it necessary to issue a public statement regarding election security. In a joint news release, the Attorney General's office, Homeland Security, National Intelligence, the FBI, NSA, US Cyber Command and the CISA reassured Americans that they were making election security a top priority. This should send chills down your spine.
The statement said: "In an unprecedented level of coordination, the U.S. government is working with all 50 states and U.S. territories, local officials, and private sector partners to identify threats, broadly share information, and protect the democratic process...Our adversaries want to undermine our democratic institutions, influence public sentiment, and affect government policies. Russia, China, Iran, and other foreign malicious actors all will seek to interfere in the voting process or influence voter perceptions. Adversaries may try to accomplish their goals through a variety of means, including social media campaigns, directing disinformation operations, or conducting disruptive or destructive cyberattacks on state and local infrastructure."
"While at this time we have no evidence of a compromise or disruption to election infrastructure that would enable adversaries to prevent voting, change vote counts, or disrupt the ability to tally votes, we continue to vigilantly monitor any threats to U.S. elections. The U.S. government will defend our democracy and maintain transparency with the American public about our efforts. An informed public is a resilient public. Americans should go to trusted sources for election information, such as their state and local election officials. We encourage every American to report any suspicious activity to their local officials, the FBI, or DHS." Why should this send chills down your spine? Elections are local. We don't need the feds watching our every move, encroaching, applying pressures. Soft tyranny in the name of security.
There is a system to prevent fraud at each precinct that has been in place since we began holding elections in this country. While there are problems with election security because dead people, absent people, and illegal people vote, having the "deep state" involved as a guardian of election security is very dangerous to our Constitutional Republic given it's commitment to controlling our government. Think false dossiers, the FISA secret court, so-called whistleblowers, books written against an elected president by CIA operatives, and so forth. These people need to stay out of our precincts and our elections. It's like the fox guarding the chicken coup. Proverbs 12:22 says, "Lying lips are abomination to the Lord: but they that deal truly ae his delight." Don't be deceived by propaganda and lying lips.

Daily Devotion: In His Name - by Greg Laurie -
Then those who feared the LORD spoke to one another, and the LORD listened and heard them; so a book of remembrance was written before Him for those who fear the Lord and who meditate on His name.-Malachi 3:16
Do you notice when people use your name? I can be out somewhere with my son, Jonathan, and he'll say "Dad . . . Dad!" but I won't respond. Then he'll say, "Greg Laurie!" and I'll immediately turn around. If you say my name, you'll get a response.
In the same way, when you say the name of Jesus, He will respond. He pays attention when we speak His name.
People use the name of Jesus all the time, and sadly, sometimes they use it in profanity. Why is that? Because even in their twisted way, nonbelievers are acknowledging there is power in the name of Jesus.
When we gather for worship, the Lord is listening. When we initiate a conversation about Jesus, the Lord is eavesdropping. He wants to know what we're saying.
Malachi 3:16 tells us, "Then those who feared the Lord spoke to one another, and the Lord listened and heard them; so a book of remembrance was written before Him for those who fear the Lord and who meditate on His name" (NKJV).
The phrase "listened and heard" means to prick the ears or to listen more carefully. Not only does God listen, but He notices as well. And He will reward us for every act of faithfulness.
Galatians 6:9 says, "So let's not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don't give up" (NLT).
God takes notice of everything you've done. Maybe you haven't received the thanks you deserve or that pat on the back. But the Lord is watching. The Lord is keeping a record. And one day He will reward you for every sacrificial act, every gift you gave, and everything you did in the name of Jesus.

One of the most reliable ways to determine if a ministry is worthy of your financial support is to examine its fruits. If Prophecy Update is keeping you informed, and if that information inspires you, and causes you to draw closer to the Lord, if Prophecy Update equips you with valuable information and knowledge to share with and encourage other believers, and open the eyes of non-believers, and if Prophecy Update keeps you connected to current events relating to Bible Prophecy, then you are partaking of the fruit produced through this ministry. None of this would be possible without the Lords blessings and your support. I believe where the Lord guides, the Lord provides, and most of the time He provides through the willing and generous hearts of believers just like you and me.

"Share in the Blessings and Rewards that will last Forever!"
"Folks, it's all beginning to unravel. America is in more danger of falling than at any time in its history. But I believe Bible prophecy predicts this very decline. From this point on, we believers have to get serious. We are going to face discouragement, disillusionment and, most certainly, persecution in the time between now and the Rapture. But don't be discouraged or disillusioned. The coming turmoil will provide us unrivaled opportunities to share the good news of the Gospel. So be ready to share your faith and your hope with those who need Christ. We still have time to reap a great harvest of souls for God's kingdom!" - Hal Lindsey
