sign of the fish

“Some faced jeers and flogging, while still others were chained and put in prison. They were stoned; they were sawed in two; they were put to death by the sword. They went about in sheepskins and goatskins, destitute, persecuted and mistreated–the world was not worthy of them. They wandered in deserts and mountains, and in caves and holes in the ground.” (Hebrews 11:36-38 NIV)

Our brother Judah recently asked the question that makes up our title. It occurred to me that others–especially in the West–want to know “What is the underground church?” It’s the right question at the right time.

As the passage in Hebrews 11 (above) describes, saints have endured periods of great distress. The people of God have often known times of siege. Second Timothy 3:1 warns, “There will be terrible times in the last days…” With the brutal first-century executions of innocent Christians in Rome during Nero’s reign, we can imagine why Peter wrote “The end of all things is near.” (1 Peter 4:7 NIV) There was no warning before terror struck.

Desperate times call for desperate measures. Huddling together in a cave is a sign of desperation. Foraging in the desert is evidence of tough times. Living in catacombs under the city they once called home, was for Romans identified by the sign of the fish. They could exist underground or be entertainment for the Coliseum crowd that rooted for the lions.

My definition of an underground church is “a fellowship of believers who continue to serve Christ while under siege.” War has been declared for reasons beyond their control. They are hated without reason. They must endure great hardship and suffering, but they don’t have to die. If they do not move to God’s place of safety, they will not survive.

My previous post was a response to the beheading of 21 Coptic Christians by radical Muslims. They were Egyptian men whose sole crime was their faith in Christ. If any Coptic pastors are reading this, I strongly encourage you to take your flocks underground, at least until the danger is past. If you think it is cowardly to leave the four-walled building you’ve called home to where the Lord can hide you, then count on more widows, orphans and more funerals, including your own. The underground church is an alternative to being the entertainment for gruesome videos loved by the terrorists.

The bottom line is this: We have made the Church bricks and mortar when the Lord meant it as people. We foolishly invest our resources and energies into a building and its upkeep. But this is war. We are under siege from now until the end of the age. One bomb and that cement, wood and glass is blown to bits. One fire and our lovely church is a heap of ashes.

The Church has always been people, but idolatrous worshipers fixate on the material. When war breaks out and its time for saints to move, we wait too long. Hearts won’t let go of the past. Lot’s wife turned into a pillar of salt for a similar reason. Tarry, while the enemy plots his massacre, and we are playing into his hands.

I know of churches who have armed security protecting the Sunday a.m. crowd. Security killed a man in the foyer of a large Colorado Springs, Colorado, church before the lone gunman could open fire on the worshipers. What’s this? It is one response, but how many guns is enough? What kind of weapons are needed to meet force with force? What happens when the bad guys’ plan of attack takes into account “church security”?

if the shepherd’s job is to protect the flock, wouldn’t the church be better served to head underground rather than the more guns and ammo approach? What do we have to lose beside a costly structure that devours our resources and offers a false sense of security? Imagine what great good we’d accomplish if our budget went to providing for the saints.

The biggest obstacle to Western leaders preparing their congregations for the siege is the Pre-Tribulation Rapture (PTR) doctrine. I have the 70’s “Wish We’d All Been Ready” movie scene etched in my mind: The angel’s trumpet sounded on Sunday a.m. and the members disappeared. The sign outside read “The Rapture: First Thessalonians 4:13-18“.

How many pictures of little girls in bloody dresses and bullet-riddled bodies of boys will it take before we ditch this one fictional image and act? I’m concerned about the answer because I have children and grandchildren in churches that teach PTR fiction as if it were true.

In Part Two, we will look at the amazing growth when leaders adopt the Underground Church model. (It will make us wonder what they were thinking when they ceased underground operations in the 4th century.)

“Just as it was in the days of Noah, so also will it be in the days of the Son of Man.” (Luke 17:26 NIV)

Video of the beheading of twenty-one Coptic Christian men was released last weekend. The Jihadist assassins vowed not to rest until they spilled Christian blood in Rome. This was happening while two were dying from gunshot wounds in Copenhagen, one, a Jew attending synagogue.

Rising antisemitism and the murder of four other Jews in Paris last month convinced Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to take action. Yahoo News reported Monday in the post “Netanyahu urges Jews to move to Israel” the Israeli leader has called for an absorption of mass immigration from Europe.

Would the migration of Jews to the their homeland be a sign? Are these latest atrocities against Christians and Jews also a sign of the last days? Most assuredly they are!

The promise to the souls under the altar needs to be heeded. In Revelation 6 God comforted the martyrs with an assurance of his vengeance: “Then each of them was given a white robe, and they were told to wait a little longer until the number of their fellow servants who were to be killed as they had been was completed.” (6:11 NIV)

If we are to know what day it is on the prophetic calendar, we must apply one of Biblical interpretation’s five major rules: “Look for the near/far in prophecy.”

An example of “near/far prophecy”, and the deeper understanding it offers, is in Genesis 6. There the Lord tells Noah what he is about to do and why. “So God said to Noah, ‘I am going to put an end to all people, for the earth is filled with violence because of them. I am surely going to destroy both them and the earth.’ ” (Genesis 6:13 NIV) Were these prophetic words just for Noah or were they also for us who live at the end of this present age?

God sent a great flood in order to put an end to all godlessness and violence. Jesus informed his disciples (top) that when the Son of Man comes (future) the world will be in the same godless and violent condition as before the flood. The principle of “near/far prophecy” tells us what to look for in Genesis 6 that will be repeated before Our Lord returns. The word “violence” shouts at us.

When the blood of innocent Jews and Christians covers the ground–which is what we are witnessing–our Deliverer will arise. He will come forth in righteousness to save his people. “For out of Jerusalem will come a remnant, and out of Mount Zion a band of survivors. The zeal of the LORD will accomplish this.” (Isaiah 37:32, 2 Kings 19:31 NIV) All violence will end. The Lord God Almighty will see to it.

” Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, endures all things. LOVE NEVER FAILS.” (1 Corinthians 13:4-8a, NKJV).

Today is a commercialized celebration of love amid varying degrees of amorous affection. People celebrate Valentine’s Day with that “special someone”. Others are broken-hearted because there is no significant other. For the people of God, the Trinity is the complete desire of our souls. God loves each of us so much that His own beloved Son became the perfect sacrifice; allowing every person the opportunity to share in the complete fellowship of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (John 3:16).

The love that the Lord has for us is shown in the Gospel of John. Twice, scriptures refer to John as the apostle whom Jesus loved. (John 20:2, 21:7). What is interesting is that in the first reference, the Greek word (phileo: to be a friend to/fond of) is used while agape is used in the latter verse. Agape love is the deliberate assent of the will as a matter of principle and propriety. When we put both those words together, we get a complete picture of the way Jesus loves us: both from the mind and in the heart. Nothing is more complete.

In the book of Revelation, John greets the 7 churches in Asia Minor with the grace and peace of the Lord. He reminds them of the true love that freed us from the bondage of sin and death.(Revelation 1:5). For the overcomers, God’s promise is that even those from the synagogue of Satan will worship at our feet and will know that the Almighty has loved us.(Revelation 3:9)
Indeed, the end of all things is at hand and we need to be serious and watchful in our prayers. The fervent love for our brethren will cover a multitude of sins.(2 Peter 4:7-8). EJ

trance

“A horrible and shocking thing has happened in the land: The prophets prophesy lies, the priests rule by their own authority, and my people love it that way. But what will you do in the end? (Jeremiah 5:30-31 NIV)

As if mesmerized, all present nod toward the pulpit. Are the spellbound part of a mass hypnosis? The words roll off the tongue of the preacher (priest), “Jesus can come at any moment?” “His Coming is imminent. No more signs are necessary.” “The Lord will come for his Church like a thief in the night.” “We will be taken up in the rapture and changed in the twinkling of an eye.” So it goes. The robots are successfully programmed.

The mantra is reinforced by Christian television and books–even Hollywood has gotten into the act (ex. “Left Behind”, 2014). We could recite the story-line in our sleep. This is what most know of prophecy about the end times. But there is a problem; none of it is accurate.

Produce one clear Scripture that supports Jesus’ return can be at any moment. Ask the Pre-Tribulation Rapture (PTR) prophecy expert to cite a single verse, not just the required two or three Scripture witnesses, but one. There is none. So how did we come up with a doctrine that has no Biblical foundation? It doesn’t matter.

Teachers who repeat “No more signs are necessary” ignore the Lord’s prophetic “Olivet Discourse” (Matthew 24, Mark 13, Luke 21). Some, to their own peril, twist it until it doesn’t mean what it says. So what?

They also fail to consider Paul’s rebuke of the Thessalonian believers. He reminded them that the Lord cannot come in glory and the gathering of the saints cannot happen until (1) the rebellion occurs, and, (2) the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. (2 Thessalonians 2:3) It makes no difference.

Other passages confirm that signs are God’s way of readying his people for what comes next on the prophetic timetable. In Thessalonians 5, the phrases “the day of the Lord” and “like a thief in the night” catch our eye. When we see “like a thief in the night”, it is in the context of the disastrous consequences for the unsuspecting who sleep or remain in a trance (Matt. 24:43, 2 Peter 3:10, Revelation 3:3).

While people are saying “Peace and safety,” destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. But you, brothers, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief. You are all sons of the light and sons of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness. So then, let us not be like others, who are asleep, but let us be alert and self-controlled. (1 Thess. 5:3-6 NIV)


Of course, the Bible has no relevance to the mindless masses if it contradicts their Group-think creed.

Confusing Paul’s teaching on the rapture in 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 with his apostolic teaching on the general resurrection of the righteous in 1 Corinthians 15:42-58 has erroneously blended two events separated by a thousand years. The water has been muddied to create a false scenario (i.e. Jesus comes for the Church in the rapture and believers are changed in the twinkling of an eye).

Rapture is not resurrection, it is the rescue or the deliverance of the righteous.

Read your Bible. Ask yourself, “How can the general resurrection of the saints at the Judgment, taught in Revelation 20:11-15, precede the Millennium described earlier in Revelation 20:1-10? Does anyone care about the truth?

Prophets prophesying lies. Priests teaching by their own authority. People loving it that way. Question if this is you: What will you do in the end?

Snap out of it! Don’t drink the Kool-Aid. “Wake up, O sleeper, rise from the dead and Christ will shine on you.” (Ephesians 5:14b NIV)

General Patton

Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon, son of Jonah… And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it. I will give you the keys to the kingdom; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.” (Matthew 16:17a, 18-19NIV)

Seventy years ago, U.S. Major General George S. Patton’s 3rd Army had Adolph Hitler’s forces in full retreat. Patton wanted to enter Berlin’s swastika-covered gates and personally crush the serpent’s head.

Arguments and questions plaguing modern Christianity would all be settled if the faithful re-adopted Jesus’ assertive definition for “Church”. Compare the accepted understanding of “Church” with the Lord’s description in Matthew 16:18. The brick and mortar church resembles a fortress while Satan’s army has long been storming the gates.

How and when did the Church accept its false identity of passivity? Credit Constantine the Great (272 A.D.-337 A.D.). As Rome’s Emperor, Constantine bore the title of Pontifex Maximus (head of the pagan priesthood). In the Edict of Milan (313 A.D.), he decreed tolerance for Christians throughout his empire. Afterward, he set about making his new religion resemble the old.

At the end of this age, churches that maintain pre-4th century traditions will eventually succumb and return to their pagan roots. It is not a matter of reforming the Church, Biblical transformation of the Church is what’s needed. Like an army is to peace, so the Church is to the Millennium. It has always been a means to an end, specifically, the 1000-year reign of Christ.

Where there is great persecution, our brothers and sisters are at war. How many of the afflicted saints wonder when Western believers will rise from their padded pews and fall in at their side? What is needed is transformational leadership such as what Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. gave to the American Civil Rights Movement or General Patton offered to those under his command in World War II.

If Patton was around to address Christ’s followers today, he might say, “Men, we are engaged in a battle we will win! Some of you boys I know are wondering whether or not you will chicken out under fire. Don’t worry about it. I can assure you that you will all do your duty. Your struggles will test you as a man. War, the supreme struggle, will provide you with your highest test. Do not forget who you are fighting and what you’re fighting for.

“I want you to also remember this: I don’t want to get any messages saying that we are holding our position. Let the enemy do that. We will be advancing constantly. We’re not interested in holding anything except his throat. We don’t take defensive positions. No defensive position has ever been successfully held against a determined foe. We will advance, advance, and advance. When in doubt–we’ll advance some more.

“Now there’s one thing you men will be able to say when you get to the next age–and you may thank God for it. Thirty years from now and you’re sitting around your fireside with a grandson on your knee
and he asks you what did you do in the great World War, you won’t have to say, ‘Well, I shoveled manure far from the battlefield.’ You will proudly say that you fought in the Great War among the bravest of the brave. And that you played a part in throwing Satan into the abyss so your grandson’s grand-kids can live in peace.

“And, oh, yes. I feel privileged to lead you men in battle, anytime and anywhere. That’s all.” “Dismissed!”

The Church militant will be the Church triumphant. Altering a quote of the World War I, General John J. Pershing, it might be said, “It didn’t hurt that the Church had so bold a leader, as to be dangerous to the devil.”

” Be dressed for action and have your lamps lit, be like those who are waiting for their master to return from the wedding banquet, so that they may open the door for him as soon as he comes and knocks…… If he comes during the middle of the night or near dawn, and finds them so, blessed are those slaves.” (Luke 12:35-36, 38, NRSV).

The most popular teaching on the return of Jesus is that He can return at any time. I hear over and over when I discuss the end times with someone that “no one knows the day or the hour.” However, within several parables, Jesus presents us with clues as to the time of His return. The main message is to be alert and prepared. In Mark 13:35, Jesus actually tells us that the master can return anywhere from evening until dawn. We learn from Luke, that the return may be anywhere from midnight until dawn. The King of the Universe wants us to be able to answer the call when he returns and those who are ready will not be surprised or caught off-guard. (1 Thessalonians 5:1-8).

The Olivet Discourse stresses the need to be on high alert and the faithful servant who is obedient will be given more authority when the master returns. (Matthew 24:45-48). The parable of the 10 bridesmaids shows the difference between the foolish and the wise. They all waited for the bridegroom but he was delayed. The unwise virgins did not have enough oil for their lamps so they had to go buy more. While they were gone, the bridegroom (who represents Jesus) returned and took only the obedient and prepared maidens into the wedding banquet. (Matthew 25:1-13) Midnight (Jerusalem time) is the common denominator in all 3 gospels. God is not delaying His return but is patient wanting all to come to repentance. Yet that Day will come like a thief in the night for those who do not heed the Scriptures. (2nd Peter 3:9-10). EJ

eat drink and be merry</a

Woe to you who are complacent in Zion, and to you who feel secure on Mount Samaria, you notable men of the foremost nation, to whom the people of Israel come! (Amos 6:1 NIV)

Writing on Bible prophecy that does not reflect the “Eat, Drink and Be Merry” attitude of the day is not the way to sell books. On the subject of the disaster God says is coming, it is rare to encounter a Christian who cares. The level of interest matters not, for the Word says, “Tell them anyway!”

The Prophet Ezekiel was among Judah’s first to go into captivity in Babylon. In exile, the Lord called saying,

“Son of man, I am sending you to the Israelites, to a rebellious nation that has rebelled against me; they and their fathers have been in revolt against me to this very day. The people I am sending you to are obstinate and stubborn… And whether they listen or fail to listen–for they are a rebellious house–they will know that a prophet has been among them… You must speak my words to them, whether they listen or fail to listen, for they are rebellious.” (Ezekiel 2:3-4a, 5, 7 NIV)

It should be mentioned that five generations earlier, Israel, the ten tribes making up the northern kingdom, were scattered by God in the Diaspora. Ezekiel was a Levite, a citizen of Judah. So why not say “I am sending you to the people of Judah”? To whom was Ezekiel called to prophesy?

King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon had already invaded Ezekiel’s land. Still many inhabitants of Jerusalem and Judea remained. If the people of Judah acknowledged their sin and turned to God, the Lord would be gracious and show mercy. Jeremiah warned them, yet they would not listen.

This prophecy is a prime example of a major rule for accurate Bible interpretation: “Look for the near/far prophetic.” Was Ezekiel prophesying to America’s last days? The profile fits. The U.S. was born in rebellion. Today we listen only to what we consider “positive and encouraging”. So the prophet’s words fall on deaf ears. We warm to the false message of “Peace and Safety”.

Nevertheless, truth will be spoken by the prophets of God. Though few Israelites heed God’s warnings, they will be spoken or written anyway.

Who cares? God does or he wouldn’t be so insistent on calling his people to repent.

In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, while evil men and imposters go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. But as for you, continue in what you have learned and become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it, and how from infancy you have known the holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.   (2 Timothy 3:12-15 NIV)

During the latter half of the last century, “God’s Smugglers” waged a war on ignorance. Where atheistic governments restricted God’s Word, the Spirit led in Brother Andrew and his band. Saints working underground were the flame, the Word the smugglers carried was the gasoline. In my opinion, it was the Bible that smashed the Iron Curtain. This we know, when souls are enlightened by God’s Word, the thrones of tyrants collapse, and Satan is defeated.

In the secular West, a similar war is underway. The Lord is recruiting fearless soldiers, like Brother Andrew. He is preparing them with foreheads of flint with which to overcome every obstacle. The prize is inside. In an age of deceit, finding the jewels, that is workmen. Arming these soldiers with prophetic truth is what will bring Satan down.

The notion that Revelation and other prophecy should be left to “experts” was hatched in hell.

It is certainly not Bibles that America and the West lack; it is knowledge, particularly on the subject of the last days. Oh, we have Bibles–plenty of them. But Satan has countered the proliferation of Bibles with a campaign of his own. His three-stage assault has, first of all, kept the masses from wanting to open God’s Word, or, once it is opened and read, from applying it to their lives

Next, the sin-darkened world hates the teaching of Scripture or its being discussed in the market place of ideas. That is why the enemy had Bibles removed from public schools. Once God’s Word is available, it must be blocked by other means. That includes ridicule and mischaracterization in the media or various kinds of threats.

Lastly, Satan’s fall back position is dissuading spiritual leaders and Bible-students from studying prophetic texts. “Persuade the lazy, naive and gullible,” that is the ploy of deceiving spirits. “Convince them to focus their energies on other aspects of Bible Truth. More so, have them adopt a mindset that prophecy is not understandable.” The notion that Revelation and other prophecy should be left to the “experts”, was hatched in hell. Though Scriptures abound, the fight is still against ignorance.

What are the implications of so many being ignorant of this great fact?

Scripture alone is able to make us wise unto salvation, yet it must be ignited by a faith in what God had written. The context of Paul’s message to Timothy (above) was a warning. Knowledge of prophecy would save the young Timothy from evil as well as save him for a supremely good purpose.

In our previous post, “Disinformation from the Pulpit”, the statement was made most Christians are clueless about Antichrist’s appearance. They do not know he will be revealed first and have authority until the Lord Jesus returns (cf. 2 Thessalonians 2:1-4). What are the implications of so many being ignorant of this great fact? Jesus himself has told us ahead of time (Matthew 24:22-25). But what if we do not read this prophecy and assimilate it as truth?

Paul encouraged Corinthian saints to stop quibbling over lesser matters, like spiritual gifts, and look ahead to prophecy (1 Cor. 14:1-5). Why this counsel? It was so they would put everything in the context of what’s coming; then they will stand against Satan’s schemes. Ignorance of the future had to be obliterated. Why are more not following this wisdom?

Since time began, the enemy has been ignorance, not flesh and blood.

For Satan, those who resist knowledge and promote falsehood are useful tools. Promoters of the Pre-Tribulation Rapture (PTR) view are not of the devil. Teachers who brain-wash students into believing Christ’s return is imminent, or “any moment”, are not the enemy. PTR attack dogs who slander writers who oppose them are not who we war against. According to 2 Corinthians 10:3-5, it is their ideas that must be torpedoed, not their reputations or lives. Thoughts must be taken captive, not Christians with different views. Since time began, the enemy has been ignorance, not flesh and blood.

Unfiltered understanding of what God spoke to his servants the prophets will set his workmen ablaze for Jesus. Today, these workmen are feeling sick over what the Church has become. A foundation of Pre-Wrath Rapture understanding threatens the darkness by exposing the myths.

If God wills, the semi-completed Prophets, Priests and Kings’ Series will provide some petrol. If so, it will need the Lord’s flame. Anyone ready?

“Do not listen to what the prophets are prophesying to you; they fill you with false hopes. They speak visions from their own minds, not from the mouth of the LORD.” Jeremiah 23:16 NIV

Before the D-Day invasion of Normandy in World War II, an unprecedented campaign of disinformation was carried out on behalf of the combined Allied forces. Realistic photos of what was, in fact, cardboard U.S. ships and  landing craft, were part of a clever ruse. It was the Nazi’s spy team in England that convinced Hitler the attack would center to the north, at Calais.

Prior to this momentous battle, Britain’s secret service converted several key German spies into double agents. Their espionage had proved credible making the spies’ disinformation all the more effective. Hitler ordered massive numbers of Nazi soldiers to defend Calais instead of the Normandy beaches. On the fateful day of June 6th, 1944, the deception proved to be the difference maker.

How many of our fellow Christians are aware that Satan is preparing an invasion of monumental proportion? (“What?” you say!) Soon the whole world will be under his control. (“Huh? How can that be?”)

Why do Christians not know this? For the same reason Hitler was fooled into looking the wrong way–disinformation.

Paul’s Second Letter to the Thessalonians was written to counter disinformation from the pulpit that threw God’s people into confusion. Brothers became alarmed after receiving a prophecy, report or letter supposed to have come from Paul, saying the day of the Lord had already come (2:2). The Apostle recalled what he had taught them. The message then was exposed as fiction.

“Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come [my emphasis] until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction…”          (2 Thess. 2:3 NIV)

From established and credible pulpits, disinformation has spread which has convinced many Jesus is returning at any moment. Thus, the new breed of Thessalonian is lulled into apathy by these supposedly accurate Bible prophecies. The context of Paul’s letter teaches that before Christ comes in glory for his saints (see vs. 1) the rebellion occurs (sign #1) and the man of lawlessness is revealed (sign #2).

Wake-up! It is a set-up. From our pulpits we are told to expect Jesus; but, the Bible informs us the Lawless One arrives before Jesus does. The disinformation about who comes first will deceive many into believing that the Beast is, in fact,  Christ–so we have the rebellion or falling away. When disinformation like “no more signs” and “any moment” is promoted by an array of believable sources, it is certain to take hold among those who will not read their Bible.

Don’t fall for a cardboard Jesus. Reject the disinformation of Pre-Tribulation Rapture (PTR) preachers. Expect the complicity of leaders who claim loyalty to Christ, but offer false prophecy. This is war! Soon the wrath of Satan will be upon us.

“By your wisdom and understanding you have gained wealth for yourself and amassed gold and silver in your treasuries. By your great skill in trading you have increased wealth, and because of your wealth your heart has grown proud.” (Ezekiel 28:4-5 NIV)

As 2014 ended, U.S. stock market gurus were toasting their success. Then, sporting pockets full of cash, they took to the expensive stores hunting big ticket items. In a January 2nd CNBC article “Steak, strippers & sweet rides: Wall Street’s back”, the writer described the scene in New York’s financial district. He wrote: “It is the good ol’ days of 2007 all over again.” (Hey, wasn’t there a major collapse in the market in September 2008?)

For many, a million dollar bonus from the boss means buying a dream car–or maybe two. The article stated: “A salesman at a high-end car dealership in Manhattan that specializes in selling Bentleys, Rolls Royce and Lamborghinis (that range from $100,000 to $500,000) said that the fourth quarter was his “best quarter ever.”

What goes up must come down! Another analyst took a pessimistic view of the year-end euphoria and made his prediction for the coming year. In The Telegraph on-line, days ago, he posted: 10 Warning signs of a stock market crash in 2015. The similarities between past good times and the present cannot be denied. America is headed for a big, big fall.

A lot of skill is involved in successful trading. Much silver and gold is being amassed by the best traders. According to the prophet, however, the luxuries and the cars are destined to go up in smoke. Today, the wealthiest 1% “live large”, but it will all change in an hour.

“Woe! Woe, O great city, dressed in fine linen, purple and scarlet, and glittering with gold, precious stones and pearls! In one hour such great wealth has been brought to ruin!”          (Revelation 18:16-17a NIV)

Bubble bursting or not, this is not the time to buy expensive cars, jewelry and homes. Instead of ascending to the heights, we ought to humbly associate with the lowly. We ought to busy ourselves in recognizing God’s true prophets, listening to their message and following them. (The Prophets of God book is written for that purpose and is available for purchase on this site.)

Having been made aware of these prophetic times, we will only see with our eyes the punishment of the wicked.
