ALERT: New Zealand PM calls for Global Censorship System — Jonathan Turley

C-Span screenshot

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern is the latest liberal leader to call for an international alliance to censor speech.

Unsatisfied with the unprecedented corporate censorship of social media companies, leaders like Hillary Clinton have turned from private censorship to good old-fashioned state censorship. Speech regulation has become an article of faith on the left. Ardern used her speech this week to the United Nations General Assembly to call for censorship on a global scale.

Ardern lashed out at “disinformation” and called for a global coalition to control speech. After nodding toward free speech, she proceeded to lay out a plan for its demise through government regulation:…” (…continue at…) New Zealand Prime Minister Calls for a Global Censorship System — JONATHAN TURLEY

WE’VE BEEN WARNED BY YET ANOTHER UNEQUIVOCAL STATEMENT FROM ONE OF THE JUNIOR WORLD LEADERS’ CABAL OF THE WORLD ECONOMIC FORUM; THE TRUE AIM OF WHICH IS GLOBAL TOTALITARIANISM – THUS FAR WORSE THAN NAZIS, FASCISTS AND COMMUNISTS PUT TOGETHER!

Also known as one of the two beasts of chapter 13 in Book of Revelation and fourth beast of chapter 7 in OT prophet Daniel’s Book. SO RISE UP MEN & WOMEN OF GOD, THE ‘BRIDE OF CHRIST’!

NEW ERA: very first post on ‘Endgame’ has now circled up to next level

The Endgame is now in play

TWO times SEVEN years ago, in 2008 I encountered two conflicting claims from international ministry leaders, known personally to Nina and me, about how Jesus’ parable on the end-time harvest of wheat and tares (Matt 13:36) is to be applied to a controversial minister. So I went to check scripture but upon opening my Bible a deep excitement exploded within as I heard, “This is ALL about to be fulfilled” – WOW!! Continue reading

God’s hand reveals Rev 13 Beast behind World Economic Forum

“I gotta say, that tentacled skull glaring down at me from the HYDRA logo really matches the words coming out of that Shwab fella’s mouth,” said one forum attendee, “Including the time he laughed maniacally about how many young people in the US think communism works.”

WEF’s Intentions Hidden in Plain Sight – Conclusion

CONCLUSION – THE FINAL REVIVAL

I am absolutely convinced that shortly before the return of Jesus there will be a great awakening. I believe “There before me was a great multitude that no-one could count ………. in front of the Lamb” and “these are they who have come out of the great tribulation” Revelation 7:9 and 14, confirms that view. We cannot, and should not seek to, stop the establishment of a new world order.

However, recognising, explaining and broadcasting the method by which prophecy is being fulfilled, will aid evangelism. We can pray that the maximum number of people will hear and understand what the information means. Let us pray for, and be involved in, the completion of the Great Commission. Amen.

WEF’s Intentions Hidden in Plain Sight – Neil Mackereth

Here, my long-time friend and teacher on End-times Neil Mackereth assesses the WEF aspects relating to a possible (probable?) “new world order” government. It comes with several links and for those who are short of time the last is a “must watch” (approx 14 mins). Those under ‘The Fourth Industrial Revolution’ are the next most important. Your attention is drawn to Neil’s clear conclusion and I trust his briefing brings a number of deep concerns into the Light:

THE WORLD ECONOMIC FORUM

Intentions Hidden in Plain Sight

BACKGROUND

The World Economic Forum (WEF) is a non-governmental international organization for public-private cooperation, founded by German economist and engineer, Klaus Schwab, in 1971. ( https://www.weforum.org/about/world-economic-forum )

The WEF has an annual conference in Davos which attracts national leaders, high profile politicians, billionaire philanthropists, international financiers, and the corporate heads and senior executives of national and multi-national commercial enterprises.

Klaus Schwab opened this year’s conference with the statement: Continue reading

What is the Book of Revelation for? Part 5 – Neil Mackereth

Our dear friend Neil writes,

‘Dear Richard, At last I have managed to finish part 5 of the study articles on Revelation. One of those cases where making it short is far more difficult than writing it as a tome!! At one stage it was 19 pages, so I changed the whole approach. It can’t be long now before the New World Order reveals its plans in a way that leaves nothing to the imagination – we couldn’t live in more exciting and what are more clearly “end-times”.’

Indeed!  Also, in our chat over Rev 22:20 I mention some translations state ‘soon’, whereas literal Greek has ‘quickly’, which implies suddenly. Neil reminds me he writes  in ‘SIGNS’ of ‘soon’ in Rev 1:1 often being translated as meaning events will take place over a short period of time, rather than our concept of ‘soon’.  So, I propose scheduling this last part for publishing at 11th minute of 11th hour of 11th day of June 2022!

To my ploy Neil replies, “11th hour on the 11th sounds significant/appropriate in light of recent comments on the Battle for Britain, changing of the guard, Big Ben’s imminent recommencement of regular chiming, the quickening (exponential) pace of prophetic end times indicators (wars and rumours of wars) etc, etc. Time is short!”   (American prophet Robin D Bullock goes live at The 11th Hour every Tuesday – RB’s note.)

WHAT IS THE BOOK OF REVELATION FOR? – Part 5: CHAPTERS 19-22

A Digression

I start this section with something of a digression, relating to the whole of the Book of Revelation. At Revelation 19:10 it says: “For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy”. For ease of reading, I have tried to avoid too much cross-referencing in these articles. Nevertheless, the whole of Revelation is interwoven with links back to scripture in general, and to the prophetic scriptures in particular, from both the old and new testaments. The Old Testament records the creation of the world, the selection of God’s chosen people Israel, their successes, failures, trials and tribulations, the restoration of Israel after exile, and all things prior to the first advent of Jesus. The New Testament adds the prophecies of the disciples and, in particular, of Jesus in Matthew 24 & 25. These themes and prophecies are picked up in Revelation. Some suggest that the whole Bible could be studied from Revelation, using it as the basis for a form of reverse analysis of scripture (not for the faint-hearted!).

Globalists enter the kill phase of Great Reset. Remember Deagel population forecast? It now makes total sense — Leo Hohmann

This was a big week for the globalists. They feel it’s their time, go time, to launch the most difficult phase of the Great Reset so they can get on with what they call the Fourth Industrial Revolution. The Fourth Industrial Revolution, as explained by World Economic Forum guru Klaus Schwab, will lead to a “fusion” of every human being’s physical, biological and digital identities. It’s basically the dawning of a new era based on transhumanism and technocracy, something akin to what was laid out in the novel ‘Brave New World’.

But they can’t get there until they reset everything. Kill off the old. Bring on the new.

Resetting the world isn’t something you can pull off by just pushing a button. It requires a series of well-designed global crises, as Schwab and his chief advisor Yuval Noah Hariri have said on more than one occasion. […] Globalists have entered the kill phase of Great Reset; Remember the Deagel population forecast? It now makes total sense

END-TIMES ALERT to Britain’s Church & National Leaders > Mark of the Beast ALMOST HERE!

Noticing this morning’s items brings news of this End-Times Update on advancing preparations for full introduction of Revelation 13:16-17; Mark of the Beast:

https://expose-news.com/2022/05/24/supermarkets-to-ban-paying-with-cash-or-card/

We’re well aware of satan’s strategy to prevent The Lord’s End-time harvest and thwart Jesus’ return to the Mont of Olives in Jerusalem by bringing about upheavals foretold in the holy Bible, mainly through globalists’ New World Order or World Economic Forum, BUT BEFORE the Time ordained by our Almighty Father.

Even so, we ALL need to learn about – and be fully taught by well-informed church leaders!! – what is now happening and how it lines up with scripture and accurate contemporary prophecy..

Meantime, here’s some encouraging news on that front on Telegram:

Lastly, my apologies to readers who received notification of this post but which failed to work, as explained in the attached comments to this post.

PS: Some subsequent scripture:

  • Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand10 he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. 11 And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.” (Rev 14:9-11)
  • And I saw something like a sea of glass mingled with fire, and those who have the victory over the beast, over his image and over his mark and over the number of his name, standing on the sea of glass, having harps of God. (Rev 15:2)
  • The Saints Reign with Christ 1,000 Years

    And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. (Rev 20:10)

Further to my previous postings on Revelation 13 and the maSk/MaRk of the Beast…

“Then I saw another beast that rose out of the earth; it had two horns like a lamb and it spoke like a dragon. It exercises all the authority of the first beast on its behalf, and it makes the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose mortal wound had been healed. It performs great signs, even making fire come down from heaven to earth in the sight of all; and by the signs that it is allowed to perform on behalf of the beast, it deceives the inhabitants of earth, telling them to make an image for the beast that had been wounded by the sword and yet lived; […continue at…] “so that no one can buy or sell who does not have the mark” — Dover Beach

What is the Book of Revelation for? Part 4 – Neil Mackereth

‘Dear Richard, Many thanks for broadcasting Part 3 and here is Part 4 – probably the most significant and certainly the most challenging to “encapsulate”.  It is 3½ pages  long, the second 3½  pages is a Glossary of End-Times Terminology, which you may wish to separate.  May the Lord continue to guide and encourage you both, Neil’

I’m very grateful to him for his compilation of a very helpful glossary, which is published separately and most fittingly as a celebratory 100th static page of Richard’s Watch, and located in the About Signs hub (all copyright reserved).

WHAT IS THE BOOK OF REVELATION FOR? – Part 4, Chapters 12-18

In this part we will consider the key issues covered in chapters 12 to 18 of the Book of Revelation. As we approach the climax of the battle between good and evil (Jesus and Satan), there is a change of style and emphasis. John sees new visions which are very different from the seven-part series of letters, seals and trumpets, and his reporting style becomes more like a narrative. Continue reading

Bible Update: Rev 13 Mark of the Beast – Leo Hohmann BOMBSHELL VIDEO: Economist at World Government Summit says new financial world order about to shift in dramatic new direction!

The World Government Summit is underway this week (Mar-Apr) in Dubai and we’ve already got a bombshell to report. Dr. Pippa Malmgren, a top American economist who served as a special adviser to former President George W. Bush, made a statement that confirms everything myself and others have been reporting for quite some time – that a cashless society is looming right around the corner

…”She states her belief that the world financial system is about to switch accounting systems & digital money. Not decentralized cryptos, but centralized CBDCs (central bank digital currency)

We are on the brink of a dramatic change where we are about to, and I’ll say this boldly, we are about to abandon the traditional system of money and accounting and introduce a new one. And the new one; the new accounting is what we call blockchain… It means digital, it means having an almost perfect record of every single transaction that happens in the economy, which will give us far greater clarity over what’s going on.”

[…] BOMBSHELL VIDEO: Economist at World Government Summit says new financial world order about to shift in dramatic new direction — LeoHohmann.com

Leo posted the above on 30 March and I delayed re-blogging but it makes a highly suitable follow-on to Michael Bennett’s dream of Biden and £ note – also read Tim Shey’s contribution affixed thereto. 

Leo makes this highly pertinent point:

‘As I’ve stated before, the entire Great Reset hinges on two things – the establishment of a global digital currency and a global digital identity for every man, woman and child.

Pippa Malmgren is warning us. That system is at the door. And once it’s here, it marks the beginning of the end because nobody will be allowed to buy or sell without becoming a digitized, hybrid human being. I believe it will be possible for us to live outside this system for a while, but we need a plan, a network. We will need to live in community with like-minded refusniks….’

What is the Book of Revelation for? Part 3 – Neil Mackereth

Further to Part 1 and Part 2 Neil kindly sends the latest with his covering comment: “The mayhem continues apace and many continue to be challenged and surprised as more and more of Satan’s diabolical schemes are revealed. God has told us before-hand, and it is why His Wrath will be so dreadful for those who do not revere Him.”

WHAT IS THE BOOK OF REVELATION FOR? – Part 3: CHAPTERS 4-11

In this paper we will look at some of the key issues covered in chapters 4 to 11 of Revelation. It is not my intention to make a line-by-line exegesis, and a few chapters need little additional comment. However, before we tour God’s Headquarters and see the battle-plan unfolding, I want to give a little more background information.

John wrote (more accurately, he was instructed to record what he witnessed) the Book of Revelation during the era of apocalypticism.  This rather obscure term speaks more of a mindset than of a specific literary category, though certain works in the period 200 BC to 200 AD do share some common literary traits. Apocalypticism is primarily a way of viewing reality. The Greek word apocalypsis (from which we get the word apocalypse) denotes the action of: uncovering, unveiling, disclosing, or revealing something previously hidden or secret. In short, an apocalypse is a public disclosure of classified information.

Apocalypses often include esoteric (secret) information about the workings of the heavenly realms and how this influences the earthly realm. In biblical literature, this information is usually conveyed to a prophet who, sometimes, is transported to heaven and given a tour. What is witnessed is written down, for the benefit of a larger earthly audience. An angel may explain the visions: Ezekiel, Daniel, and Zechariah include apocalyptic sections involving angelic guides (Ezekiel 40:3–4, 43:6–27; Daniel 7:15–28, 8:15–27, 10:10–21; Zechariah 1:9–2:13, 4:1–6:15).

[Re. Daniel 7 & Revelation 13] Who influences the influencers? Meet Klaus Schwab’s chief adviser… — Leo Hohmann

People often ask me, where does Klaus Schwab get his bizarre, indeed frightening ideas about transhumanism, globalism and technocracy? Who shapes his worldview?

Let’s start off by stating upfront that every Western leader you see on the world stage right now is a puppet of the New World Order. His ideas are not his own but are coming from Satanic inspiration.

So the question is, who is whispering into the ears of Biden, Trudeau, Macron, Johnson, Zelensky and the other front-men for the global Great Reset? […]

Who influences the influencers? Meet Klaus Schwab’s chief adviser — LeoHohmann.com

THIS IS ESSENTIAL BACKGROUND READING REGARDING THE 4th BEAST SEEN BY PROPHET DANIEL AND THE TWO BEASTS SEEN BY APOSTLE JOHN

I wonder, could this Israeli historian become the prophesied AC as he’s speaking on the mechanisms necessary for full implementation of the Mark of the Beast…??

TAKE NOTE, for example:

He is your model transhumanist who thinks he can become god,” Wood told me. “He is the chief philosophical adviser to the World Economic Forum and one of the premiere authorities in WEF circles. They just hang on his every word.”

The level of evil we are dealing with here is so intense that most Christians and conservatives have no idea how deep it goes and will frankly have trouble believing it. No politician is going to be able to save us from this evil, only Jesus Christ.

…The reason a digital currency will soon be needed is because the hard currency represented by physical paper and coinage are going to be phased out shortly.

And the decisions to this end are not being made at the presidential level. The drive toward a global digital money system involves decisions made by people at a much higher level, the top tier of international bankers such as the Rothschilds and others whose names most of us would not recognize (Jacques Attali could be one of them). The decision has been made and there will be no stopping it short of God’s supernatural intervention.

As I previously reported, everything we see happening on the world stage right now is geared toward the emergence of two things – the creation of a digital global ID system (it will launch as a simple vaccine passport but evolve into a universally recognized, overarching ID) and the creation of a digital global money system. The World Economic Forum has been openly pushing for both of these.

Once those two things are in place – digital money and digital ID for all persons – the global predators can proceed with the creation of a truly one-world system under which nothing will happen outside of their surveillance and control. Every transaction will be monitored. They will know what you bought, where you bought it, and how much you paid.

Next, we’ll consider prophetic words brought by Robin Bullock on 6th March which are most illuminating on the above matter…

Dark Days and The Light Of The World – Chris G Bennett

On Friday Chris G Bennett published this absolutely ACE on his Facebook, which not surprisingly attracted a couple of dozen comments:

DARK DAYS & THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD

There are some dark days ahead of us. Once again it seems that Satan really believes he can beat Jesus Christ down. He did the same at Calvary, where to all intents and purposes, he appeared to have defeated to Son of God by having Him killed on the Roman cross. But, three days later, Jesus rose from the dead, collected the keys to death, hell, and the grave from a very surprised Satan, and ascended to sit at the Father’s right hand – exactly as prophesied in scripture for centuries beforehand.

So what does Satan expect this time around?

Much biblical prophecy points to these days – “wars, rumours of wars”, “nations and leaders raising themselves up – way beyond their capabilities”, earthquakes, fires, storms! Everything pointing to mayhem and Satan having a ball at our expense. Yet, as with the original scenario, prophecy points to a very different outcome!

Prophecy, biblical and 21st century, points to a ‘Great Falling Away’! Is this not happening? Have not great swathes of the church followed their own teaching rather than God’s? Is there not a great watering down of Christ’s gospel message – no heaven, no hell, no repentance, no death to self, no humility, etc etc? Has the church not virtually extinguished the ‘Light of the World’. And has its salt not become bland and tasteless? Nearly every prophet worth the name has spoken into this.

But also, nearly every prophet worth the name has also spoken of the final harvest, the great gathering in, otherwise known as end-time revival. Prophecy, both biblical and 21st century, is full of signs, wonders, miracles, and ‘greater things’ that Jesus spoke of, alongside a great harvest of souls yet to come to salvation. Just as it did two thousand years ago, history will record that Satan once again tried and failed to oust the Son of God from His position as the Light of the World.

As I said, there are some very dark days ahead. I believe we will go right to the very edge of war and Satan will even appear to have won. BUT – God will turn things around. Satan will walk right into the Lord’s hands, as God turns everything round. There will be a great revival, there will be great persecution against Christians, there will be a huge upheaval in politics – particularly in America and Europe. The ‘swamp’ will be drained – Trump will be justified and returned to his rightful place – China, Russia, North Korea, and other aggressors will once again back off from their sabre-rattling stance. In fact, I believe Russia and America will become allies – albeit a little wary of each other – and a new respect will be established between them. I also believe the CCP will suddenly dissipate into a much less powerful and aggressive state.

Yes, dark days are coming, but the Light of the World has yet to have His say on everything. And the Rapture? Who knows other than the Father Himself – even Jesus said He doesn’t know. As the Word of God says, so many times, “FEAR NOT” for God is still in control and everything is safe in His hands! Glory to God and Hallelujah \o/

What is the Book of Revelation for? Part 2 – Neil Mackereth

WHAT IS THE BOOK OF REVELATION FOR?  – Part 2: THE LETTERS

In the Introductory article (Part 1 of this series) I made no mention of the 1st chapter of Revelation. So, for completeness and before proceeding further, I attach (at annex A below) a review of the 1st chapter, as a necessary lead-in to the examination of the letters in Chapters 2 and 3 of Revelation.

The letters to the 7 churches contain comments that can only be understood by referring to the prophetic chapters that follow them. My assessment will seek to link the most significant observations in each letter to the relevant clarification / expansion in the chapters that follow.

But first, some observations on the structure and common factors. They all start with an address to the angel of the particular church, followed by a different characteristic of Jesus for each. Five churches are complimented; two are not: Sardis and Laodicea. Five churches are reprimanded; two are not: Smyrna and Philadelphia. All are given advice, and all are encouraged to have an ear to “hear what the Spirit says to the churches” (note that we should listen to what is said to all the churches). Each church is told what “He who overcomes” will receive.

What do the letters promise “to him who overcomes”?

The overcomers of the Church of Ephesus are assured that they will eat from “the tree of life”. The clarification: “Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city.” (Rev 22:14). The overcomers of the martyr Church of Smyrna are promised the crown of life and that they “will not be hurt at all by the second death.”

What is the second death, and who will suffer it? The prophecy explains: “the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.” (Rev 21:8). “Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death.” (Rev 20:14).

The Church of Pergamum overcomers are promised hidden manna and a white stone with a new name written on it. There are no direct references in the subsequent chapters; however, hidden manna may well refer to “the bread of life”; “This is the bread which comes down from heaven, that one may eat of it and not die. I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread that I shall give is My flesh, which I shall give for the life of the world.” (John 6:35 & 50-51). The “white stone with a new name …” has been the subject of much speculation. There are references to a new name: “ … you will be called by a new name that the mouth of the Lord will bestow” and “… to His servants He will give another name”  (Is 62:2 & Is 65:15) but the full meaning of the white stone reference has yet to be revealed.

To the Church of Thyatira: “to him who overcomes, and does My will to the end, I will give authority over the nations – He will rule them with an iron sceptre; he will dash them to pieces like pottery …. … I will also give him the morning star.” In the subsequent prophetic chapters, the shaking of the nations is portrayed. A woman clothed with the sun, and crowned with twelve stars gives birth to a son who will rule all nations with an iron sceptre (see Rev 12). The morning star is Jesus (Rev 22:16), who will “rises in your hearts” (2 Pe 1:19).

The Church of Sardis, which had a reputation for being alive but was dead, is told to wake up and strengthen what remains. There are no good comments; even so, a few overcomers will be dressed in white and will not have their names erased from the book of life. Later, at Rev 20, we see the book of life opened and at Rev 21, that only those named in the “Lamb’s book of life” will be able to enter the New Jerusalem.

The Church of Philadelphia, receives the encouraging promise that the overcomes will be made pillars in the temple of my God; and “I will write on him the name of my God, .… and I will also write on him my new name.” At the start of Rev 14 we read: “Then I looked, and there before me was the Lamb, standing on Mount Zion, and with him 144,000 who had his name and his Father’s name written on their foreheads” (see also Rev 22:4). Two other encouraging comments are: “I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut” and “I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come on the whole world to test the inhabitants of the earth”. I have often heard the former used in prophetic words given to individuals, and the latter is sometimes used in support of the pre-tribulation rapture argument.

Lastly, the lukewarm Church of Laodicea, which boasts about its material wealth while not realising that in God’s eyes it is wretched and miserable and needs to repent. Even so, Jesus shows His long-suffering love: “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock,” and to those who overcome: “I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I was victorious and sat down with my Father on his throne.”

In Part 3, we will look at significant aspects in the chapters that follow the letters, some of which we have commented on above.

What is the Book of Revelation for? Part 1 – Neil Mackereth

Readers may recall my astonishment over The Great Rethink: Back to Basics, Bible Prophecy by dear Neil Mackereth published six weeks ago, comprising part of a totally unexpected triplet as the 3,600th posting on Richard’s Watch. Recently he sent me this most helpful paper, as follows:

Hi Richard, Do hope you and Nina are well.

Every week we seem to be facing yet more turmoil and danger as the world creeks and groans its way towards the final denouement. I feel urged to try my utmost to get people to take Revelation seriously! I embark on a number of papers to try to encourage more interest by demystifying that which can be demystified! But still recognising that some things await revelation as they unfold. I hope it will be helpful.

May the Lord continue to bless, encourage and guide your thoughts and actions. Neil

WHAT IS THE BOOK OF REVELATION FOR? – PART 1: AN INTRODUCTION

The prime purpose of the Book of Revelation is to give the Church all the information it needs to be victorious in the time of tribulation (which is very near) which precedes the second advent of Jesus. The Bible opens with creation and man’s fall; it ends with victory. In the early stages, Satan is triumphant; at the close Satan is conquered, and the redeemed are with Jesus.

In this and subsequent articles, my aim is to provide a basis for further study, in smallish chunks of understandable English. I do not attempt to address the diverse options, opinions and queries relating to different interpretations and understandings of features of the Book of Revelation, nor do I seek to change any of its content!

Scepticism and a burgeoning form of liberal humanism have taken a grip on western society. Bible truths have been reduced, at best, to the rank of eccentric opinion and harmless religious sentiment. At worst, those who live by biblical principles are seen as undermining social cohesion and in need of remedial training, or more draconian “corrective” measures. We Christians need to use every God given help at our disposal to confront this all-pervading evil. Biblical prophecy is a major weapon in our armoury; it shows clearly that God has always known the end from the beginning.  God Himself draws back the veil to enable us to see, and understand through His prophets, that His strong arm has been at work throughout history. Once our eyes are open to the truths of fulfilled prophecy, it becomes clear that what appear to be disconnected shakings, confusion, chaos and turmoil (historical, current or in scripture relating to the future) had, has, and always will have, purpose in God’s providential plan. We can be absolutely certain that the prophecies which relate to the future will be fulfilled.

Jesus said, “I have overcome the world.” He now sits at the right hand of God the Father, has “all power and authority”, and leads His Church, as “conqueror bent on conquest.” In His letters, sent through John to the Churches (His witnesses on earth), He promises that those who overcome will receive the wondrous rewards of the Kingdom of Heaven. In the prophetic vision chapters that follow the letters, we gain an understanding of what the conflicts, sufferings and challenges are going to be, in the time of tribulation that comes before the preordained (ultimate) victory for Jesus and His followers. This is the theme of the prophecy, and its object is a practical one. It is a gift to the Church militant from Christ triumphant. Because Jesus has overcome the world, we too can overcome the world. Faith in God, His Word, and the authenticity of biblical prophecy therein, will make us victorious: without it we have nothing. In other words, conquering visible enemies is achieved through faith in things invisible. The conflict is both physical and spiritual: the latter includes demonic led attacks through sorcery, the occult, the apostate church and false prophets.

For the last 2000 years Christians have suffered hatred, persecution, torture and murder; nevertheless, it is the Christians who are the real conquerors, and the ultimate victory is assured! “Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world.”

There are theologians and ministers, of various ranks and denominations, who dismiss Revelation as irrelevant. The opposite is true, it was written to encourage and strengthen Christians, to arm us for battle and to guide us to victory. It is NOT just some curious way of writing that belongs to a distant past, nor is it a myriad of strange images and visions that relate to events so far in the future that they can be ignored. Those who have not grasped its huge significance have missed the point. It is prophecy (and tells us so) straight from the Throne Room of God Almighty. The exhortations in chapter 1 and warnings in chapter 22 give clear indication of its unique status and huge importance to God. It may be difficult to interpret but it deserves close study: it is vital that any true follower of Christ does his or her utmost to grasp its importance and purpose.

In some studies of Revelation, the letters chapters are treated in isolation to the rest of the prophetic content of the book. To my mind that “compartmentalisation” is not helpful: each church has a message for us in relation to how we prepare to face the time of tribulation, and the relevance of the promises and warnings to those churches are explained in the subsequent chapters. I will expand on this in Part 2.

In Part 3, we will look at how the true Church is represented by the woman who is “clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head” who is forced to flee into the wilderness and remain hidden during the time of the antichrist’s dominance (Rev 12, 13).  And at the woman seated upon the beast, reigning over “peoples, multitudes, nations and languages” (Rev 17): the Harlot Babylon who represents the corrupt world power structure and economic system based on selfishness, lust and greed.

In Part 4, I will endeavour to pull the threads together and provide an aide memoir to encourage further study. My hope is that by looking at Revelation with a greater awareness of what is being portrayed by certain imagery and personifications it will become easier to read and understand.

Gog-Magog Update: The Bear, the Dragon and the Beast from the East – Veronika West

Last night Veronika published what she’d earlier in the day heard from the Lord :

THE BEAR, THE BEAST FROM THE EAST AND THE DRAGON

In prayer this afternoon while seeking The LORD concerning The Nations, I heard The Spirit say,  “Watch and Pray, for did I not say that The Bear Nation has emerged from a time of political hibernation with a hunger for War and an appetite for greater territorial occupation and domination among The Nations?

Yes!  And did I not say that the Dragon Spirit would strike, and The Bear Nation would invade to take a rich and fertile land?

I say Beloved, Watch and Pray, and pay close attention, for in the days ahead the right hand of The Bear Nation shall shake hands with the right hand of the nation of Turkey and a powerful alliance will be created, and then the two shall come into agreement to form a threefold cord of allegiance with the Beast of The East with a desire to destroy the land flowing with milk and honey.

But I say, Nay!  Nay, for when their diabolical plan begins to unfold, a great unraveling will take place, and the demonic threefold cord shall surely be broken, and the strength and military power of The Bear Nation shall be brought to nought.

But!  Watch and Pray for surely I tell you, the eye of Leviathan is now upon the fruitful Vineyard, and the tail of The Dragon Spirit is thrashing in the realm of The Spirit, to stir up turmoil and trouble for The Nation of Taiwan.

But I say, keep Watch and Pray, and stay alert, for False Flags and the pointing of fingers will take place to bring a desired distraction from that which is now being fully exposed and uncovered in the realm of darkness.

For I tell you, this is the beginning of birthing pangs as greater and greater shakings and divine disruptions take place as Nation rises against Nation.

For in The Valley of Decision, goat and sheep nations are now being sifted and shifted, scattered and gathered up.

Look and see, for a Demonic Convergence is now taking place over Nations in the midst of birthing, as the spirit of the Antichrist rises to resist the advancement of My Righteous Remnant Army, as they build and establish My Kingdom Government in The Nations of the earth.

And watch!  As the spirits of deception and death masquerade as messengers of light, but come seeking to divide and conquer, dominate and occupy more and more territory, by striking fear and torment in the hearts.

Many who have become woke, weak and willing vessels, have fully submitted and surrendered themselves to an Antichrist Agenda and to a One World Order.

I say again — Watch and Pray.  For The Bear Nation shall bite down hard, and the tail of The Dragon Nation shall suddenly strike without warning in the coming days!”

Blessings to you all.

The Millennium and the Great Awakening — John Barber

The Millennium and the Great Awakening As those who read my writings and blogs know, “the Millennium” and “the Great Awakening” are two subjects I take particular interest in and have written about. For example, “Prophets of the Bible – the Second Edition” is my recently published book, and included in it is a discussion on the subject of the Millennium, as it forms an important part of Bible prophecy. “The Millennium: The Last Days According to Jesus with R.C. Sproul” is a scholarly and balanced short presentation on the views Christian have concerning the Millennium, noting good Christians with overall sound doctrinal views often disagree on the subject.[…]
