Prophetic, Bill Wilson, Bill KoenigWorld on the Prophetic Brink
Turkey is showing its radical Islamic roots by saying that it would prevent NATO from sharing important military information with Israel.
Iran announced it has stopped oil sales to Britain and France. Saudi Arabia said publicly that it would make up the difference.
However, Saudi Arabia actually cut oil production in December.
Russia is still arming Syria. And Feb. 19 Iran warships were in Syria. By all indicators, the stage is set for an Islamic inspired war,
fueled by Russia, targeted at Israel, and catalyzed by Obama White House. Are we on the prophetic brink?
All signs point to The Day of YHVH (the LORD).
Whether this day is a literal day or an extended day, scholars are not sure.
But most agree that this is the time when Yeshua Ha Mashiach (Jesus the Messiah) returns to reclaim the world and judge the enemies of YHVH (God).
The nations in current headlines are consistently mentioned -
Turkey (Magog, Meshech, Tubal, Gomar, Togarmah), Iran (Persia), Iraq, parts of Eastern Turkey (Assyria), Libya (Libya and Northern Africa), Syria, and others.
And Thou shalt come up against my people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land, it shall be in the latter days.
Another prophecy is directly aimed at Damascus, Syria. Isaiah 17:1
Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.
Some believe that Mecca/Saudi Arabia, is the Great Mystery Babylon characterized in Revelation 17
Arabia (Islam) is in a wilderness (the desert), is drunk on the blood of the saints (Islam kills Christians worldwide),
the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her and have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication
(every current leader of a major nation has bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia, and the world is addicted to her oil).
In the context of current events, this interpretation appears likely.
Is the world on the prophetic brink?
It is very close, however, there are many events that must happen before the Messiah returns.
The rise of the antichrist, a peace treaty with Israel, wars and rumors of wars, insurmountable inflation, pestilences and famines.
Things are going to get much worse. Yeshua (Jesus) said in Matthew 24:33
when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
There will be death, malaise and destruction as people are caught in the crossfire of these events prior to the return of the Messiah.
People can rage against this all they want, but in the end, the eternal position of every human soul hangs in the balance.
Where is yours?

Food Security and the end time Beast
May 22, 2012 Bill Wilson, Christian journalist and commentator, firstname.lastname@example.org
The G8, the UN, etc. are banding together to ensure “food security” for developing nations.
Barack Hussein Obama kicked off the G8 Summit with a brief speech about “mobilizing more than $22 billion”
for a global food security initiative targeting a billion people who go hungry each year.
He said the G8 was “launching a major new partnership to reduce hunger and lift tens of millions of people from poverty.”
The countries he cited as examples were terrorist breeding, Islamic influenced poor nations, Kenya, Ethiopia and Somalia.
He repeatedly spoke of government assisted food security, a term that could be a hallmark of the end time beast government.
Revelation 13:16-17 describes the end time beast government where “all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond,
to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell,
save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.”
The G8 initiative is not this government. It is, however, a type and shadow of this end time beast prophecy.
Herein, the nations of the world are gathered together to end world hunger--a heart tugging, emotional and worthy cause.
Except to say as did the Messiah in Matthew 26:11 that “For ye have the poor always with you.”
We are not to ignore the hungry, far from it, but the government should not be in control of who eats and who doesn’t.
Feeding and clothing the poor should be something that comes from the heart and willingly done without compulsion.
It is in that compulsion that governments enslave people. If governments can require such wealth and resource redistribution,
they are not far from uniting to require total “food security.” Food Security is defined as a household having enough food to not live in huger or fear of starvation.
The food security that will occur with a global government in charge is one that determines who has food and who doesn’t.
That is the control of the end time beast empire.
0bama’s March 16 Executive Order (EO) on National Defense resources preparedness makes possible 0bama declaring Food Security as a national emergency.
Given the authority contrived in this particular EO, all agricultural resources from farm machinery to the food that is grown to the water used to grow it can come under government control.
0bama already has used a declaration of national emergency regarding Syria, Iran and Yemen to justify confiscating property of American citizens.
A small stroke of the pen could result in food security being a national emergency and national security threat, an example of how the Beast can determine who can eat.

End time Islamic Caliphate forms
July 6, 2012 Bill Wilson
End time watchers should be keeping their eyes on the political positioning of the north African nations after the Arab Spring, which was bolstered by the Obama White House.
Libya, Tunisia, and Egypt are a large part of the nations that figure into the end time schemes of the Beast government that seeks to destroy Israel.
Turkey, Iraq, Syria, Jordan, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, and Pakistan are others that prominently fit into the end time picture in one way or another.
The United States over the past 90 years has played a role in positioning these countries into an Arab-Islamic association that anchors the end time scenario
written about by the prophets Daniel, Ezekiel, Joel, Isaiah, Jeremiah, John, and others.
The White House partnership with the Muslim Brotherhood has deep implications in this alignment.
The Muslim Brotherhood not only has a plan to destroy the United States from within, but also is founded on the principle of reuniting the Islamic Caliphate of the Ottoman Empire.
This Caliphate was ended in a single day on March 3, 1923 after 623 years of rule.
Unlike the Roman Empire, the Ottoman Empire ruled over the majority nations mentioned in the Bible as those who would come against Israel in the end times,
including parts of Persia (Iran) and Saudi Arabia. US assistance of the Muslim Brotherhood has brought the modern concept of a reunited Ottoman Empire into view.
Two recent events are notable. The White House assisted al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood in overthrowing terrorist sponsoring dictator Muammar Gaddafi
to establish religious (Islamic Sharia). The powers in Libya are holding parliamentary elections and the main objective now is to constitutionally preserve Sharia law,
meaning no religious freedom. Libya was conquered by the Ottoman Turks in 1551.
The other event is the invitation of Egypt’s newly elected president, a Muslim Brotherhood candidate, to attend a meeting in Iran.
Iran is Shiite and Egypt is Sunni, end time prophecy suggests that these two sects will work together against Israel and also turn on each other.
As stated in Daniel 12:4, understanding will increase in the end times: “...seal up the book until the time of the end. Many will rush here and there as knowledge increases.”
Not all the countries mentioned in the end times prophecies were ruled by the Roman Empire, but they were ruled by the Ottoman Empire.
The US not only participated diplomatically in ending the Ottoman Empire, but also is participating in reforming it through “democracy.”
As we look at the global landscape today, the former Roman Empire is in a shambles. The former Ottoman Empire is on the rise.
Another factor: the Catholic Church is leading an ecumenical movement to find common ground with Islam--with the US State Department’s help.

A stern prophetic warning
We as a people need to repent and return to the one true God YHVH and begin to revive ourselves, our families, our communities
and our nation from the basis of the Holy Scriptures in the Bible. We need to quit following emotional, strange and extra-biblical teachings and get back to the ancient paths.
Our system of politics for one thing. We are supposed to choose righteous people who are of truth, fear YHVH and hate covetousness to represent our interests as a nation.
But both the Republican and Democratic parties are out of control to the point they do not even know truth, especially in providing for our general welfare and national security,
the very reason for government.
Barak Hussein 0bama is the worst to have held that position in the history of our nation! His record and reputation speak for themselves.
He and his administration is actively in league with the Muslim Brotherhood in helping overthrow Arab countries in the name of “democracy.”
Secretary of State Hellary Clinton’s top aide Huma Abedin’s family is intimately connected to the Muslim Brotherhood.
The overall connections of this Administration to the Muslim Brotherhood have led to a Congressional investigation whether there is influence by the terrorist group on US policy.
From Sinator John McCain to House Speaker John Boehner and many others we are hearing condemnation of Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann.
She wrote letters to intelligence and national security agencies raising questions about the Muslim Brotherhood.
The letters, signed by four other Congressmen, accused Abedin’s deceased father and brother of being part of the Muslim Brotherhood,
and her mother part of the Muslim Sisterhood. The Abedin family ties to the Muslim Brotherhood have been reported in both Arab and Western media.
Bachmann was doing her job raising a concern for America’s national security. Many of the most conservative members of her party condemned her for it.
As Christians, we know that politics, politicians, and political parties are corrupt. Most Christians also have essentially sat on the sidelines doing nothing about it.
Most have opted to pray, but count prayer as the only needed action. Hence, when someone stands for the truth, condemnation follows.
As Yeshua said in Matthew 5:13, “Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted?
It is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.”
This nation and its people are headed down a similar path of ancient Israel.
Whether by YHVH’s hand or by our own, if we do not turn from our current condition, there is great mourning on the horizon.
Psalm 83 confusion and today’s Middle East
The current US-assisted Middle East unrest spanning from Libya across Northern Africa through Egypt and North into Syria has inspired much talk and speculation about Psalm 83. There are many Biblical commentators who believe that Psalm 83 is about a prophesied war that triggers several prophetic events, including the rapture, the tribulation, and the eventual return of Yeshua Ha Mashiach. A careful reading of Psalm 83, however, will demonstrate that there is no war prophesied and that the psalm is not a prophesy, but rather a prayer against the enemies of Israel that could be used even today as the nation is surrounded by those mentioned when Asaph wrote the psalm.
Verses 1-5 say, “Keep not thou silence, O YHVH: hold not thy peace, and be not still O YHVH. For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head. They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones. They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance. For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee.” Then Asaph names names--Ishmaelites who are Arabs; there is Edom, Moab, Ammon from Jordan; Gebal and Tyre from Lebanon; Hagarenes from Mesopotamia, Syria and Egypt; Amalek and Philistines from Gaza and Egypt; and Assur from Turkey and Iraq.
The rest of the Psalm asks YHVH to cause these enemies to perish by wind, fire, storm, even confusion, concluding with verse 18, “That men may know that thou whose name alone is YHVH, are the most high over all the earth.” There are many items in Psalm 83 that are common to prophecies referring to the Day of the LORD. One example is iwhen YHVH defeats the beast (Gog) in Ezekiel 38. Many of the countries and people groups are similar. The LORD uses rain, hailstones, fire, brimstone, and confusion to defeat this coalition (v. 21 “every man’s sword shall be against his brother”) that “they shall know that I am YHVH” (v.23).
These nations that are prophesied as coming against Israel by the Old Testament prophets are consistent enemies of Israel and today they are followers of the most antichrist system in the world--Islam. It is no huge revelation that these traditional enemies of Israel will cause wars and rumors of wars from now until the end. Our generation may well see the end time prophecies of the Bible play out before our very eyes. But let us be ever mindful of false teachings and traditions of men that lead us astray. Don’t take my word for it, or other teachers; don’t get angry if what you have been taught over a lifetime is challenged. Read the Bible for yourself, in its context, and judge what is being taught. Yeshua told his followers repeatedly to not be deceived by man. -Bill Wilson

US backed Muslim Brotherhood’s apocalyptic foreign policy
The ramifications of the White House backing the Muslim Brotherhood (MB)in taking over Egypt and other Middle Eastern/Northern African nations are beginning to show, and they do not bode well for American foreign policy. Moreover, the American-backed MB takeover of Egypt appears to be drawing together both Sunni and Shiite Muslim countries in support of the Brotherhood’s goal of reestablishing the Islamic Caliphate and ushering in an apocalyptic scenario. For decades, US analysts did not believe the Sunnis and Shiites would unite politically because of their vast differences. But the new leadership in Egypt is reaching out to Iran and her allies in ways that are raising the specter of a united Islam.
Stratfor analysts report that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad invited Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi to attend the Non-Aligned Movement summit in Tehran from Aug. 26 and Aug. 31. This is just one example of Iran's several attempts to normalize ties with Cairo. The MB’s openness to changing foreign policy direction could provide an opening for Tehran, since the MB has a different political agenda and different political constraints than the former regime. Stratfor says apprehensions are growing in Riyadh, Abu Dhabi and other Gulf Cooperation Council capitals that the Muslim Brotherhood's rise in Egypt will trigger a regional rise of Muslim Brotherhood-type Islamist groups.
David Schenker of The Washington Institute writes that Morsi will visit China (on of Iran’s staunchest allies on the UN Security Council) before the summit in Tehran. Morsi seeks investments to enable Egypt to "dispense of loans and aid." Schenker says Morsi wants to resume ties with Tehran and is articulating a newfound ambition to jettison billions in US foreign assistance and financing from Western financial institutions. Morsi's Egypt might offer Chinese warships priority access to the Suez Canal. China might also receive access to American technology in Egypt. Schenker says If Morsi gets his way, improved bilateral ties to Beijing will embolden, if not enable, Cairo to downgrade Egypt's ties to Washington.
The MB’s stated goal is to reestablish the Islamic Caliphate to have global rule. Analysts who long said that Sunni and Shiite would never unite are now having to rethink their hypothesis. In the end times, the nations that come against Israel are today Islamic/Arab, Sunni and Shiite. The Bible says the attackers on Israel will unite for a time, but eventually as in Ezekiel 38:21, “every man’s sword shall be against his brother.” And as the prophecy of Ishmael, Islam’s claim to Abraham, in Genesis 16:12, “And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man and every man’s hand against him.” The foreign policy of the White House is aiding the establishment of the Caliphate--something that will not easily be reversed even with a change in leaders.

Headlines indicate clarion prophetic warning
September 13, 2012 Bill Wilson
There are major headlines concerning the Middle East in general and the United States and Israel in particular that should send a clarion prophetic warning to those who discern the times. The headlines include: Egypt-Iran meeting could increase terror attacks; White House cancels meeting with Israeli Prime Minister; Embassies in Libya and Egypt attacked by Islamists; and American diplomat killed in Libya attack.The resultant actions from these news stories could cause a convergence of dangerous activity connected to types and shadows of end time prophecies that undoubtedly will impact you and your family.
There is an open feud escalating between the occupant of the Oval Office and the Prime Minister of Israel over Israel’s right to defend itself by a preemptive strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities. This feud is so deep that the US president is refusing to meet with Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu. In pointed remarks toward the US president, CBS reports that Netanyahu said, “Those in the international community who refuse to put red lines before Iran don’t have a moral right to place a red light before Israel.” According to a Reuters report, the White House rejected a request to meet with the president from Netanyahu during a trip to the US later in September.
The occupant of the Oval Office brought American war power to bear in assisting the Muslim Brotherhood and al Qaeda in overthrowing the governments of Libya and Egypt. Yet on September 11, Islamist gunmen in Libya attacked the US Embassy killing the US Ambassador and three staff members beginning with a rocket attack on their car; ending with the Ambassador being suffocated and the three aides shot. The US Embassy in Egypt also was attacked as Islamists burned the American flag and tried to raise the Muslim Black Flag with the words, “There is no God, but Allah, and Mohammad is his messenger.” The attacks were sparked by a movie produced in the US that allegedly “insulted” Mohammad.
In response to the movie-generated violence in Egypt, the US Embassy in Cairo issued a statement saying, “We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others.” Both Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the president issued similar statements that “While the United States rejects efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others, we must all unequivocally oppose the kind of senseless violence that took the lives of these public servants.” The religious justification of these violent actions should not be a part of any condemnation of their murderous deeds.
Meantime, National Security and Intelligence reporter Bill Gertz wrote that a meeting between the head of Egyptian General Intelligence and Iran’s Ministry of Intelligence and Security has raised concerns that the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt could become more involved in supporting global terrorism. The Muslim Brotherhood was considered a terrorist sponsoring organization until the current administration took office. All these headlines do not bode well for America. The American president has supported Islam at every opportunity and remains a critic for those who would hurt Islamic religious feelings even as Islamists murder our own diplomats.
By denying a meeting with Israel and by opining appeasement to Islamists, the US leadership is risking putting Americans here at home in harm’s way. The US is a lot like Babylon in Jeremiah. The nation is failing morally, economically, and spiritually as it supports the enemies of YHVH. The prophetic implications are enormous from types and shadows of Ezekiel and Revelation to very specific ones like that of Jeremiah 51:14, “I will fill you with men like locusts; they will raise a battle cry against you.” Watch yourself in transition. Pray for YHVH’s mercy. Call for repentance. Rest in Yeshua.

Debate Analysis from a Christian perspective, Bill Wilson
W. Mitt Romney vs Barak Hussein Obama aka Barry Soetero October 3, 2012
The occupant of the Oval Office Obama and his challenger Romney debated domestic issues.
Obama's huge ears were red after the first salvo and remained so throughout the debate, he often looked down, rarely looked into the camera and seemed to be wanting coaching cues from the debate moderator, which were liberally given. The challenger spoke directly to the president or to the television audience, gave clear and concise answers and arguments. There was back and forth on many issues and some differences between the two on mandated healthcare, medicare, states rights, education, job formation and the deficit. But there was one distinct difference between the two on the role of government.
The president said the first role of government is to “keep people safe.” He then said, “But I also believe that government has the capacity, the federal government has the capacity to help open up opportunity and create ladders of opportunity and to create frameworks where the American people can succeed. Look, the genius of America is the free enterprise system and freedom and the fact that people can go out there and start a business, work on an idea, make their own decisions...there are also some things we do better together.” He named the government involvement in the transcontinental railroad, National Academy of Sciences and land grant colleges as examples of government’s role.
The challenger responded: “The role of government: Look behind us. The Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. The role of government is to promote and protect the principles of those documents. First, life and liberty. We have a responsibility to protect the lives and liberties of our people, and that means a military second to none.” He said government should maintain the individual’s “right to pursue their dreams and not to have the government substitute itself for the rights of free individuals. And what we're seeing right now is, in my view, a trickle-down government approach, which has government thinking it can do a better job than free people pursuing their dreams. And its not working.”
The president seemed to be running against his own record, not wanting to admit that four years have gone by and the things he was criticizing were his own shortcomings. He didn’t want to take responsibility for the deficit, for unemployment, for a diminishing middle class. He suggested, however, that his policies would work better than his challenger’s ideas. The challenger said that these policies are not working: “And the proof of that is 23 million people out of work. The proof of that is 1 out of 6 people in poverty. The proof of that is we've gone from 32 million on food stamps to 47 million on food stamps. The proof of that is that 50 percent of college graduates this year can't find work.”
Now for the real analysis. Neither candidate is ideal from a Judeo-Christian perspective. Their religious beliefs are well known. But one thing for certain, one of these men will be president of the United States barring that they are still alive. A write-in vote for another candidate, not voting for whatever reason, or over spiritualizing the election will not change that reality. From Saul to Zedekiah, from Washington to Bush, YHVH has used leaders for His purposes. In America, we get to choose our leaders. And choose we must. The Biblical criteria: “able men, such as fear YHVH, men of truth, hating covetousness (Exodus 18:21).” Which man most embodies those requirements? You will choose irrespective of whether you vote for one of them or not. The Lord will work through you one way or another.
Deception and the current prophetic times
October 5, 2012 By Bill Wilson
As I look around me at the current situation of our people and our times, one word comes to mind: Deception. Deception is defined as “the action of deceiving someone; a thing that deceives.” Some of the words in the thesaurus regarding deception are: deceit, deceitfulness, duplicity, double-dealing, fraud, cheating, trickery, chicanery, deviousness, slyness, wiliness, guile, bluff, lying, pretense, treachery, and subterfuge. Yeshua tells us in Matthew 24:4, “Take heed that no man deceive you.” I wonder why then do we not take deception and the art of deception more seriously in our society. Being deceived has harsh consequences physically, spiritually and prophetically.
The word “deceived” appears at least 86 times in the Bible, according to my trusty search engine. Deception, especially, from a spiritual and prophetic perspective, has been a big problem throughout the history of man, and shall continue in the prophetic future. Why so much deception when we are warned against it? One answer may be found in Obadiah 1:3. Speaking of Edom, the prophet wrote, “The pride of thine heart has deceived thee...” So pride is a cause of deception. Galatians 6:7 says, “Be not deceived; YHVH is not mocked: for whatsoever a man sows, that shall he also reap.” In this we know that our actions or decisions contrary to YHVH impact our lives--even if we don’t want to believe they do.
The word of the Lord came to the prophet Micah about wicked rulers and deceiving prophets. Micah 2:8-11 speaks of how the people, not grounded in YHVH, were so deceived by the rulers and prophets that they became an enemy: “Even of late my people is risen up as an enemy...Arise ye, and depart; for this is not your rest: because it is polluted, it shall destroy you, even with a sore destruction. If a man walking in the spirit and falsehood do lie, saying, I will prophesy unto thee of wine and of strong drink; he shall even be the prophet of this people.” Here the people are warned by Micah against the false prophets less the people be so deceived that they become an enemy of YHVH and be destroyed.
Many people wonder aloud why our nation is in such horrible condition. There is much deception and also a willingness to be deceived. The wicked have used deception to advance their causes. Some are deceived into thinking that their actions have no consequences. Many are so full of pride that they are easily deceived, thinking that their pastors, their confidants, their politicians would never seek to deceive them. The word of YHVH, is the best prevention of deception. Studying it faithfully, in its context, prevents deception. But that is a lot harder work than listening to someone tickle ears with their own version of what the Bible says. Deception has prophetic consequences. Take heed that no man deceives you.
PEOPLE DO NOT LOVE TRUTH - SO THEY CHOOSE TO BE DECEIVED!
Because they did not love of the Truth,
God will send upon them a strong delusion so that they will believe what is false (a LIE).
2 Thesselonians 2:10-11
Take heed that no man deceive you.
Israel violence not Magog, but keep an eye on Turkey
November 20, 2012 bill Wilson
Many are pointing to passages in the Bible in connection with the current violent conflict in Israel that has brought the Middle East to the precipice of war. Like layers of an onion leading to the core, the violence is a type and shadow of prophetic fulfillment, but it is not the Magog War. We can see, however, that certain players are edging closer to the actual Ezekiel 38 prophecy where Gog of Magog leads Islamic nations against Israel in a colossal end time battle where only the return of the Messiah saves the remnant of Israel from total destruction. We now see how modern day Turkey is coming closer into the prophetic obit as prophesied in Ezekiel.
Ezekiel 38:3 says, “And say, Thus saith the LORD YHVH; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal.” Ezekiel goes on to prophesy that Gog will lead Persia, Ethiopia, Libya, Gomer, Togarmah, Sheba, Dedan and the merchants of Tarshish against Israel. Gog is the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal. Magog, Meshech and Tubal were part of the Assyrian Empire located in modern day Turkey--as was Tarsus, Gomer, and Togarmah. Sheba and Dedan were located in what is now Saudi Arabia. Persia is Iran. Ethiopia is Sudan and Eastern Northern Africa. Libya is Western Northern Africa. There are many ancient maps on the internet and in libraries that independently verify this. One is below:
As Israel is attacked by the terrorist group Hamas, the Occupant of the Oval Office has called on the Prime Minister of Turkey and the President of Egypt “about steps that could be taken to bring an end to the violence.” These were chosen because they have a relationship with Hamas and the other terrorist groups in the Middle East. Egypt’s Morsi is from the Muslim Brotherhood, which serves as a uniting umbrella for the terrorist organizations. Turkey’s Erdogan is considered a major player in representing the Islamic side of “reason.” But Turkey’s involvement is prophetically significant and the US President elevating Turkey to be a main broker of peace plays directly into the Ezekiel end time prophecy.
Meanwhile, we see yet another aspect of this prophecy. All these nations are coming against Israel. Yet the Ezekiel coalition is not yet complete as we see it today.Turkey, with ancient roots from the Assyrian Empire including Meshech, Tubal, Gomer, Magog, and Togarmah that point directly to the leadership of Gog, is also being pulled into the orbit of the Syrian rebellion as the violence increases. Turkey long has been building diplomatic credibility since the Islamic Caliphate ended in Turkey in 1922. This was the last empire that ruled over the vast majority of nations mentioned as coming against Israel in the end times, leading many to believe that a revived Islamic Caliphate is antichrist empire.
Egypt, Iran, Turkey, a prophetic union
Friday, November 23, 2012 Bill Wilson
Middle East analysts not only for media organizations, but also at the State Department and within the intelligence community continually say that the only thing Sunni and Shiite Muslims hate worse than each other is Jews and Israel. These analysts see no way in which the Sunni and Shiite leadership will work together long enough to unite against their stated common enemy. Cited often is the serious and real divide between Sunni Saudi Arabia and Shiite Iran. The Saudis and Egypt do not want a Middle East controlled by Iran. The two sides of the division will fight to the death if they are given the opportunity. With the one exception being Israel.
Islam has its origins in the Bible. Genesis 16:11-12 prophesies to Hagar the Egyptian handmaiden of Abraham’s wife Sarah: “And the angel of the Lord said unto her, Behold, thou art with child, and shalt bear a son, and shalt call his name Ishmael. And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man’s hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.” The Hebrew translation says “living his life at odds with all his kinsmen.” Instead of Isaac, Muslims consider Ishmael the chosen son of Abraham. This theme is repeated with Jacob’s brother Esau, who married Ishmael’s daughter Bashemath as well as Canaaanite women (Genesis 36:2). Islam’s founder, Muhammad, claimed to be a direct descendent of Ishmael.
Ezekiel 38 gives a coalition of nations that come against Israel. They are led by Gog, the chief prince of Magog. The areas mentioned in connection to Gog originate from the Assyrian Empire and are located in modern Turkey. These are descendants of the Egyptian Hagar. Persia is also mentioned, which is modern Iran. In modern terms, these players represent both Shiite and Sunni Muslims who unite against Israel in the “acharit-hayamim,” meaning the end of days. They will do battle against Israel and YHVH will destroy them with earthquakes, fire and brimstone. Ezekiel 36: 21 follows the prophesy in Genesis, saying, “...every man’s sword shall be against his brother.”
When we see news stories where the terrorist leadership of Hamas extends a public “thank you” (AFP Nov 19) to Egypt’s president Morsi and Iran (who he says “had a role in arming” Hamas), we can see how Shiite and Sunni can put aside their differences and unify against Israel. Furthermore, they came into union as Turkey’s Prime Minister Erdogen and Morsi worked together at the request of the president of the United States. This is a clear instance where we can see how modern politics can work hand in hand to fulfill ancient prophecies. These prophecies are yet unfulfilled, but like layers of an onion that eventually bring us to the core, layers of prophecy are being revealed with the help of global politics.

Plethora of madness! - Bill Wilson
Never in the history of my lifetime have I seen so many things coming at us from so many directions. Our way of life is threatened not only by the government we continue to elect, but also by the consequences of its and our actions or inaction. The Founding Fathers based the Constitution off of Biblical principles. They established the Bill of Rights, of which there were 10 (a parallel to the 10 Commandments) to protect the rights of the citizens from an overpowering government. Now it seems that each of those rights are under siege every day from some faction. Your right to free speech and religious expression is chief among them. The right to own guns, the right to privacy - all under threat.
It is incredible that this government is allowed to do what it does. It is the height of hypocrisy. Think about it. The occupant of the Oval Office wants to introduce several pieces of legislation aimed at taking away your Constitutional right to bear arms because a handful of mentally ill people are using guns to kill innocent children. Yet this same man demands a non-enumerated right of abortion on demand, tax funding of Planned Parenthood, even promotion of late term abortions. This results in nearly a million pre-born babies being snuffed out every year--legal infanticide by the millions. Politicians don’t want to ban guns because of children, but rather because they are a threat to totalitarianism.
Furthermore, the Attorney General says that guns should be taken away from citizens. Yet it is his department that oversaw “Fast and Furious” where the US made assault weapons available to Mexican drug cartels resulting in a US Border Agent being killed as well as other crimes committed against US citizens. Hypocrisy? A premise of a Constitutional Republic is government protecting the rights of its citizens, securing personal liberties by following general laws. A government that strives to take away those rights in the name of protecting rights is insidious, usurping rights, abusing power, becoming dictatorial. This will continue unimpeded until the people of this nation find their bearing.
2 Corinthians 4:7-10 says, “But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of YHVH, and not of us. We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Yeshua (Jesus), that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.” Because of the self indulgence of the “Church” rather than being grounded in the principles of Christ, the time is fast approaching that Americans will live in physical bondage. Perhaps that will cause us to become more spiritually free. But isn’t it best to be both physically and spiritually free in Christ? Why accept the plethora of madness as the new normal? Why not desire and demand the best?
Financial Collapse in 2013
The whole game is rigged. It’s ready to go down
Dec 23, 2012 Gerald Celente
Gerald Celente believes 2013 will see a massive financial collapse. (I have been hearing this for 3 years.)
The bond bomb is ready to explode.
Everyone knows that the whole game is rigged.
Its ready to go down.
Financials are Greek to me! But the things I am seeing are puzzle pieces of a Great Evil Puzzle I call the Beast system.
LIBOR, bank scandals
Global Economic Collapse
Euro-Collapse, 666, beast empire
World on the Prophetic Brink
Beast, blizzard and Revelation 12
If US govt expects panic due to financial collapse, thats why martial law
The prophetic journey - 2013 - Bill Wilson
Of the thousands of folks who receive The Daily Jot there is great diversity of opinion about how their Christianity should be played out. You are reading this because you do care about your walk with Christ, your relationship with YHVH God. I believe you are reading The Daily Jot because you care about others’ souls. And I believe you are reading The Daily Jot because you want to have greater understanding of the times from a Biblical worldview. 2012 was a landmark year in that our nation, its morals, its people, its government, deteriorated in many prophetic ways--it was landmark in that political leadership became prophetically active in supporting the very enemies of God in their quest to build worldwide dominion.
We as a Christian people are going to have to decide. Perhaps that decision is already made. I hope not. But we are going to have to decide what role we are to play in this prophetic end time. We are being led headlong into supporting evil with our tax money, with our integration into society, in almost all aspects of our life. By going along with it, we are supporting it. Now I know that this will spark internal debate, and many will be angry saying that they do not support the anti-God agenda of this dark and dying world. But phone calls, letters, emails, prayers amiss, wailing, declaring, are not getting the job done. Things are getting worse, not better. So we must determine where we stand in all of this.
First, I would encourage all Daily Jot readers to do a personal study on the end times using only the Bible that you might know exactly what we are dealing with. Do not use what teachers have taught or the latest commentary from your favorite preacher. Read and study the end times in the context of the Bible. You will find that from Genesis to Revelation that the Bible points to the return of Yeshua Ha Mashiach, Jesus Christ, and all that will occur when he returns. If you truly understand the end times from a contextual Biblical perspective--not various theories of what the latest televangelist or hot author has to say--you will know more precisely what we are facing and what to do about it.
Nehemiah tells how he led in rebuilding the wall around Jerusalem. It wasn’t easy. Nehemiah 4:8-9 says, “And conspired all of them together to come and to fight against Jerusalem, and to hinder it. Nevertheless we made our prayer unto our God, and set a watch against them day and night, because of them.” Verse 17 says, “...every one with one of his hands wrought in the work, and with the other hand held a weapon.” Even after the wall was rebuilt, there was conspiracy and internal fighting. Our path forward as Christians is not going to be an easy one. We have to understand this and be prepared for it. Determining a righteous place in our prophetic destiny may take repentance, prayer, action with one hand, and defending our work and our lives with the other.
Can man impart the Holy Spirit? NO!!!
Last week a friend told me about an experience he had at his church. He said that the leaders asked if anyone wanted to have “The Holy Spirit.” If so, he said, they needed to come up front where the leader was going to “impart” the Holy Spirit into those wanting the Holy Spirit. He said that the pastor asked everyone to point their hands toward the group and join with him in imparting the Holy Spirit into them. He said that he could feel “sort of a balloon extending out where he could actually rest his hand on it” while the impartation was taking place. At risk of offending someone, this is an example of bad doctrine and the deception that is going on in many churches.
It is non-biblical and nothing short of heresy.
I have been studying the doctrine and theology of many so-called “Christian” ministries that teach that men can lay hands on a person and “impart” and/or “activate” certain gifts such as the gift of prophecy, of being a prophet or apostle, gift of tongues, gift of whatever. There is a certain moral dualism at play here. People believe that there is good and evil. That God is good and that satan is evil. They believe that God limits himself by only working through man. Therefore, it is man, not God, who has control over whether evil is victorious or defeated. Man, therefore, has the same attributes as God and can impart them and activate them at will in other men. This is not scriptural.
Those supporting this concept use Acts 8 as their justification. It is the story of Peter and John going to Samaria to pray for those who received the word of YHVH. Verse 15 says, “Who, when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Ghost: (for as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus). Then laid they their hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost.” If one quit reading Acts at that point, it could be argued that the Holy Spirit was given by these men. But the story does not begin nor end there, and well it doesn’t because if it did, many would believe that it is man, not YHVH that can impart the Holy Ghost.
In context of the totality of Acts 8, there was a certain sorcerer named Simon who was known for having “the great power of God.” Simon heard Philip preach the word, believed and was baptized. Acts 8:13 says Simon “continued with Phillip, and wondered, beholding the miracles and signs which were done.” Verses 18-19 say, “When Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles’ hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money, Saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost.” Peter strongly rebuked Simon, saying his heart was not right with YHVH; that the gift of YHVH cannot be purchased with money; and called him to repent.
Act 8 in its entirety addresses that man can neither impart nor activate the gifts of YHVH apart from YHVH. Man is not the equal of YHVH, just in obedience a willing vessel. As is written in Daniel 4:17 describing the authority of YHVH over men, “to the intent that the living may know that the most High rules in the kingdom of men...” Man is not the keeper of YHVH’s will. Be aware that those calling themselves Christians who are practicing impartations and activations are dealing with spirits, as once did Simon the sorcerer, but they may well not be the Holy Spirit.
Staying focused in the trying times ahead
The US Supreme Court is making a mockery out of marriage. Irrespective of its decision, just the questions being asked and the answers being given are ridiculous. The term “marriage” has a definition that is been the same since the earliest recordings of civilization and YHVH God creating man and woman and giving the laws to His people. Any change in definition is changing the word and its meaning. The European Union is confiscating money from personal bank accounts to pay debt. That same practice may make its way to America. The federal government through the Federal Reserve is propping up the stock market with $85 Billion a month. What will happen when that stops?
The Department of Homeland Security is buying bullets and armored vehicles for local deployment. When the Fed stops propping up the market, the economy will likely collapse. Inflation will be high, jobs will be few, food will be costly and scarce, hungry people will be angry. Stripping the American citizen of the institution of marriage creates a deep psychological conflict as marriage is the basis of society. Creating massive insurmountable debt and expecting hard working Americans to pay up through taxes or outright confiscation, leaves the citizenry without means. Banning weapons and putting foreboding, well-armed vehicles in the streets makes the citizenry seemingly defenseless.
All the government actions of late point to a huge shift ahead for America. Our lives could be forever changed because we seem unable or unwilling to stand up and fight this leviathan. So many ask what to do. At some point if this keeps going on, you will be forced to decide what to do. But the longer it takes to resist this juggernaut of a takeover of America and a destruction of our Republic, the more suffering on the horizon. How do we as Christians handle this? People will be looking for answers. They will need hope. Aside from being a good citizen of the original American Revolution, you must be above all a good citizen of the Kingdom of God. We must convey the gift of hope and salvation.
2 Corinthians 4:8-11 says, “We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken, cast down, but not destroyed; Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.” Verse 6 says, “For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.” I also love 1 Peter 2:9, “But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that you should show forth the praises of him who has called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.” May we be such.
Have A Blessed And Powerful Day,
ALL BY DESIGN!
The ominous history around April 19-20
April 20, 2013 - Bill Koenig
There has been one serious news story after another in the past few days. First, it was John Kerry push for Israeli-Palestinian talks, then the North Korean nuclear threat.
Then a collapse of gold value, the Boston Marathon bombings and heightened security in Washington, DC.
There was a major explosion at a fertilizer plant in West, Texas, and a heated gun debate on Capitol Hill
President George W. Bush was working with Crown Prince Abdullah of Saudi Arabia on a plan for a future Palestinian state 17 days prior to the 9-11-2001 terror events.
This current period of disruption in the United States seems very similar to that time period.
Extensive list of major events that have happened on or around April 19-20:
World wars, American wars, Israeli wars, births of Hitler and Mohammed, and many others
America is breaking apart
Bill Koenig, whitehouse correspondent is level headed. His watch.org is my homepage.
He is level headed and here is his writing Sept 5 reminds me of the book - The Harbinger.
Koenig Eye View from the White House August 30, 2013: America is breaking apart: Is a series of major events coming soon?
Key dates that fit historical patterns and anniversaries will fall in September and October.
The history of 40-year economic collapses since 1773, the sixth 40-year period ends in 2013 and runs into 2016.
Major threats Israel is facing, killer robots.
Obama strategy in the Middle East has failed: 5 miscalculations.
Top CIA official calls Syria number one threat to US security (if US attacks)
Saudi power-player works to build support to topple Assad
Freedom, government, and the vultures of satan
The trap is set. The secular humanists, communists, socialists, homosexuals, and Islamists have reached such a critical mass in all branches of our government that the vultures of satan are circling as the heartbeat of Freedom in America grows faint. Politicians have used Sandy Hook Elementary School as the final nail in the 2nd Amendment coffin. Vice President Biden suggested Obama would use Executive Order to undermine the venerable Constitutional Right to bear arms. It was met by the media as something brilliant, by a disbelieving gasp from strict Constitutional constructionists, and by a great YAWN from most of the American public. The trap is set.
Never mind that deaths caused by traffic accidents are three times more than those caused by firearms - 32,993 and 9,203 respectively, never mind that deaths from drunk drivers (10,228) were more than those caused by firearms. Never mind that American taxpayers subsidized Planned Parenthood by $524.4 million in 2011, which in turn legally murdered a preborn citizen every 94 seconds - 333,964. There is no regard from this kettle of vultures for the self evident truths that all men are “endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness” unless it involves leveraging crisis to abscond those rights.
Galatians 5:1 says, “Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.” In its context, this verse is the declarative statement after a discussion about those who were born of the “freewoman”, not the “bondwoman.” That we are born of the promise by accepting Christ as stated in Chapter 3:26, “For ye are all the children of YHVH God by faith in Christ Jesus.” Despite revisionist history, the Pilgrims and Jamestown Settlers came to America for religious and economic freedom. There was a fervent belief that God provided this land, blessed it, prospered it, set it aside, that the light of Christ would be shown through it. It is this freedom that the government is now trying to take away.
If these godless deceivers in the government are allowed to use non-Constitutional means such as Executive Orders to scuttle even one of the Bill of Rights, they will use that precedent to do away with them all. Then those Christians who say we should not concern ourselves with government are going to find out first hand why the Founding Fathers were so passionate about giving Christians a say. Worshiping freely; Being able to defend your family; Having privacy; Saying what’s on your mind; It’s all in jeopardy. So long, though, that there is a heartbeat of freedom, the Kettle doesn’t become a Wake. Freedom’s life support is what lives in you as a citizen of God’s Kingdom - because He is a God of FREEDOM.
The Black Bird
Power has been given to me to come against the Christians
In my dream it seemed I was in front of the apartment building where I live. As I was standing and looking at the overhead clouds, a black bird, of a gigantic size, suddenly appeared. It was coming toward the ground with great speed. As it approached, it spread its wings. When I looked, I saw that something was written on the wings. It said,
"Power has been given to me to be able to come against the Christians in a short time."
On the beak of the bird was written,
"I want to make war against the true Christians - those that serve God with their hearts, their lives, and their actions not only in name. We'll see if they will be able to stand up against me... We'll see... I am a warrior. I fight against Christ."
This bird, of undescribable size, was never calm. It soared up and down. As I watched, I was able to see how terrifying and mean it looked. Suddenly, it dropped a ribbon which said, "It will not be long before I will declare war against the Christians. I myself will fight with all my strength." Again it began to soar upwards. Then, suddenly, a cloud of rain, thunder, and lightning appeared! A lightning bolt hit the bird and it fell to the earth. To me it seemed dead. Feeling great joy that it was dead, I went to study it more closely. As I was looking at it, it raised its head and said, "Do you really think I'm dead? I just played dead because I did not want Christ to be mad at me. In a short time, though, I will be allowed to fight against the Christians in this country." Then it shot up like an arrow, and circled over me once. It dropped a letter, that was written in English. I gave the letter to my daughter to read. It said, "I was given power on earth to fight against all those that serve and do the work of God. I have succeeded in destroying some, and others I have taken prisoner. In a short time I will be allowed to fight against you, and others like you. -Lucifer."
Terrified and troubled by my dream, I woke up and told my family. Now I am also telling it to you.
Excepted from Dreams and Visions From God
Prophetic Timing for Israel Victory
Sept. 14, 2013 - Jonathan David
The Lord of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob has provided specific instructions that give prophetic direction into His timing for the nation of Israel, the Jews and His sheep all over the world. Sadly, His instructions are often ignored or rejected, which means that many will miss the perfect timing, protection and provision of the Lord.
What advantage does the Jew have?
Unto the Jews were committed the oracles of God. Romans 3:2
The oracles are the prophetic conduits of instruction, wisdom and knowledge.
We can also know Gods timing rather than man’s timing, if we choose to.
We can know His times and seasons.
Rosh Hashanah, the Feast of Trumpets is on the first day of the 7th month.
The first day of the month is always identified by the new moon. Since it arrives at differing times each month, its impossible to know the day or hour of appearing, so Israel must always be waiting and watching for the sighting.
The law shall go forth from Zion, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. Micah 4:2
Had the Jews been waiting and watching this year (2013), they would have known that the new moon was sighted in Israel on the evening of Saturday, September 7th, which is the start of September 8th, so according to the Lord Rosh Hashanah began on Sunday, September 8th.
So, what can be so bad about neglecting the order, direction, wisdom, understanding and timing of the Lord?
The Jews did not obey the instructions and so set a wrong date also for Yom Kippur for September 13-14th, 2013.
The true date was to be September 8th, 2013.
Do you want victory in your battles and against your enemies?
Obey the word of the Lord above all others.
Olympic Glory and the hidden things
February 7, 2014 Bill Wilson
Russia, who has embraced Islam for a long time, is worried about a terror attack at the Sochi Olympic games. I wonder if anyone has considered the terror to righteousness it is promoting from the inside. The US is warning about toothpaste tube bombs on Sochi flights. Yet I read where over 100,000 condoms were being given out to athletes at the games. The New York Times is reporting that animal rights activists are running around the area trying to save the stray dogs--why? Because the Russian government is killing hundreds of strays before the games begin. I also read where everyone’s computers have been hacked by the Russian government. Reporters I know are asking for prayers for their safety.
This is a microcosm of the world system. It is a place where they are trying to protect people with sex, government spying, and killing while at the same time the evil they have embraced and placed on a pedestal is also trying to kill them. I am not sure that the Olympics have the same aura of old. People these days are intrigued by the Russian dictator Vladimir Putin, er president, because he is taking a stand on homosexuality and is a hard-liner on other issues. But we must remember that this guy is a former KGB, a Russian gestapo agent. He is not a moral man. He runs a country of Mafioso's who murder reporters and use thuggery and tyranny to keep people in line.
CBS reports that Putin’s girlfriend will light the Olympic torch. He divorced his wife last year. But what is divorce, really, in a society that for nearly a century banned God? Can marriage really exist without God? Russia is really not much changed since the Soviet era in some aspects. CBS is also reporting “the deputy prime minister of Olympic preparations revealed that video surveillance equipment is documenting shower activity in hotel rooms.” Typical of Soviet propaganda, his spokesman said that cameras were installed only during construction of the hotels and later removed. Uh-huh. Reporters are complaining about their rooms, bad toilets, lack of heat and problems with water quality.
A member of the catering staff for the Olympics posted on instagram: “Due to an extreme shortage of pillows for athletes who unexpectedly arrived to Olympic Village in the mountains, there will be a transfer of pillows from all apartments to the storehouse on 2 February 2014.” Another blogger posted that residents near the stadiums are forbidden from using their fireplaces to avoid “unsightly” smoke coming from the chimneys. Its winter! I’m sure viewers will see a much more glorious side of the Olympics. Daniel 2:22 says the Lord “reveals the deep and secret things: he knows what is in the darkness, and the light dwells with him.” The Olympic torch can’t hold a candle to the light of Christ. The world might be fooled, but not the Lord. Just saying.......
Sochi olympics 2014
The ominous history of the time period around April 19-20
Bill Koenig Eye View from the White House news report
Note from Bill April 5th
There has been one serious news story after another in the past few days.
- First, it was the beginning of sos John Kerry's push for Israeli-Palestinian talks
- then the North Korean nuclear threat
- a collapse of gold's value
- the Boston Marathon bombings
- Iran triples installations of centrifuges at Natanz and
- a major explosion at a fertilizer plant in West, Texas
The current period of disruption in the United States this year seems very similar to April other years.
Extensive list of major events that have happened on or around April 19-20:
World wars, American wars, Israeli wars, births of Hitler and Mohammed, and many others …
Previously, Eric Hadik ( http://www.insidetrack.com ) shared with us the significance of the month of April and the incredible amount of events that have happened in that month. These are events that have impacted the United States, Israel and the Jewish people.
Mohammed and Hitler were born on the same day - April 20.
Major wars began in the U.S. in this time frame. Major domestic terror events occurred on April 19 numerous times.
There have also been major news items about Iran in April from 2006 to 2012.
I have added the dates and other material to Eric's work to further emphasize this incredible information. This information will help us better watch what is coming the rest of this year and into 2014 with so many significant cycles converging.
The natural year
The sun governs our seasons, which are measured by the solstices and equinoxes. By many accounts, the Natural Year begins with the vernal equinox on March 20/21. This has been true in agrarian (agriculture/ farming-based) societies for thousands of years. It has been true in civilizations that worshipped the Sun (and established their calendars accordingly).
This period from March 20/21 to April 19/20 marks a very important transition period,
linked to various means of measuring time with physical (natural), celestial (astronomy),metaphysical (astrology) and supernatural (Jewish and Christian commemorations) implications.
April 19/20 acts like a deadline for determining what to expect in the coming (natural) year.
It is a time to watch each year for signs of 'change.'
April is a time when much of nature comes back to life.
Paradoxically, it is when man often incites war (and the end of many lives).
Nowhere has this remained more constant than in the histories of America and Israel.
The following are just a few of the events that have occurred on this date and have impacted/governed America's destiny …
beginning with our independence (and incorporating almost every major, decisive war in our history) …
Start of Revolutionary War — April 19, 1775
Battle of San Jacinto/end of Texas Revolution — April 19-21, 1836
Start of Mexican-American War — April 25, 1846
Start of Civil War — April 12, 1861
Start of Spanish-American War — April 26, 1898
Franklin D. Roosevelt announces U.S. will leave gold standard — April 19, 1933
Bay of Pigs invasion failure — April 17-19, 1961
End of Vietnam War — April 30, 1975
Operation Praying Mantis was on April 18, 1988. Attack by U.S. naval forces in retaliation for the Iranian mining of the Persian Gulf and the subsequent damage to an American warship. This battle was the largest of the five major U.S. surface engagements since the Second World War.
The April 19/20 date has pinpointed many events of great 'civil unrest' and/or domestic terrorism in the U.S. They include:
ATF raid on Covenant of the Sword and the Arm of the Lord (CSA) — April 19-21, 1985 (linked to the Oklahoma City bombing a decade later)
Explosion on the USS Iowa (speculated to be an act of sabotage/suicide, but never proven) — April 19, 1989
Waco/Branch Davidian raid by FBI/ATF — April 19, 1993
Oklahoma City Bombing — April 19, 1995
Columbine High School massacre — April 20, 1999
Anti-Jewish riots break out in Palestine — April 19, 1936
U.S.S.R. performs nuclear test at Semipalitinsk, Eastern Kazakhstan, U.S.S.R. — April 19, 1985
Benedict XVI, Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, becomes the 265th pope — April 19, 2005
The historical date of infamy for Israel and her enemies – April 20/21
This date has also had a dramatic impact on Israel and Jews. In the last 2,000 years, Jews have had many enemies and many antagonists; but three, in particular, stand out:
Birth of Rome/Roman Empire
What do they have in common? They were all born on April 20/21.
The birth of Rome (by Romulus) is dated as April 21, 753 B.C.
The birth of Mohammad is dated as April 20, 571 A.D.
The birth of Adolph Hitler was April 20, 1889
Israel faced the Great Arab Revolt of April 19, 1936
The Warsaw Ghetto Uprising began April 19, 1943
The ascension of Gamal Abdel Nasser in Egypt on April 18, 1954. Nasser was Israel's lead antagonist for almost two decades. He was responsible for three wars with Israel from 1956–1970. He was also responsible for the first United Arab Republic — in 1958–1961, a concept that could reach a more cohesive realization in the coming years.
To say the least, this has been a very significant period of time for centuries.
First Blood Moon of the tetrad April 15, 2014 - Passover
Bill Koenig and Bill Wilson work together so I put them together
70 weeks of Daniel
Kent Hovind - Dr Dino
He thinks the 10 toes of the statue are Sunni and Shia Islam / Muslims.
I agree with a lot of what Dino is saying. I'll never agree 100% with anyone.
Dino has an interesting sense of humor - and a chart (I hate charts)
Kent Hovind is OUT of jail.
A RAPTURE pre-trib is false doctrine. Pastors pushing a pre-trib rapture will be held responsible for all who abandon the Faith and take the mark and go to hell. As long as pastors push false rapture doctrine, they arent jailed. hmmmm .....
GOD did not change His mind on rapture date,
there is NO PRE-TRIBULATION RAPTURE!
I am glad to see Bill is still blogging!
The End of the west
Several Christian Bible prohecy teachers are using the word - convergence.
So many signs YESHUA (Jesus) gave in Matthew 24 and Luke 21 are seen NOW, all together, converging, merging, so we KNOW we are NOW in those Last Days. Even Russia in Syria NOW fits bible prophecy.
Avi Lipkins says Russia is NOT Gog.
The Al Qaeda Muslim Brotherhood timeline
Islamic Timelines Fueling Jihad, December, 2015 (excerpts, edits)
The following concerns the demonic convergence of the Al Qaeda, MB = Muslim Brotherhood timelines which is occurring RIGHT NOW. Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the UAE listed Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist group.
All-out war with the West has begun
December, 2015 - MB timeline to destroy the West culminating THIS month, Westerners are in for dark times now that the caliphate has been re-established. MB documents ignored by Western leaders are mobilizing jihadists worldwide. Al Qaeda’s 20-year plan to internationally criminalize any criticism of Islam (Islamophobia) culminates 2015 December 9th.
The MB timeline to impose Islamic law - Sharia - worldwide converging this month. More terror attacks expected worldwide. They destroy Western civil liberties through the use of Sharia-compliant UN resolutions and hate speech codes to curtail any discussion or analysis of Islam.
Many things converging
There has been one serious news story after another
The Convergence of the Signs: They are All Coming Together
Convergence of the Signs is the sign!
Coping in these difficult times
June 5, 2012 Bill Wilson
In recent days, I have received several emails asking questions about how to cope with stress and anger over the condition of the economy and the moral condition of the nation.
Many are out of work and cannot find jobs. Interesting that with all the government programs, many do not qualify to even receive help for food or other essentials.
A couple people have written saying that they visited all the churches in their area, and none would help them.
Still others are stressed over the non ending wars and nation-building, the police state, the gloomy economy, the specter of homosexual marriage, and other declining issues of morality.
How do we cope, they ask?
I have been writing about current events from a Biblical world view nearly every day for 10 years and six months. The news has not improved.
At one time, prophetically inspired events occurred once every couple of weeks. Now, there seem to be several per day. Time is truly accelerating.
I have often written that we cannot stop the march of prophecy, but we can determine our place in it.
Certainly, my study of the end times suggests that things are not going to get better the closer we get to the return of Yeshua.
I believe that the Lord has allowed my wife and I to experience very difficult times over the past 7 years to prepare us for the days ahead and to assist others as we experience them.
The Holy Scriptures are the best means to cope. In them, you will find tremendous wisdom and solace. While reading them regularly, you will grow closer in your relationship with YHVH.
For my wife, during her long illness, Psalms gave her hope and comfort. The other day I was feeling the need to hear from my Father in heaven.
I picked up my Bible and just thumbed through some pages. The one I settled on for no particular reason happened to be Ecclesiastes 3.
This is the chapter where Solomon says there is a season for all things. Most know of these verses, but we are not quite so familiar with the ones that immediately follow.
My eyes zoomed in on Verses 11-13:
“He (YHVH) has made everything suited to its time; also he has given human beings an awareness of eternity;
but in such a way that they can’t fully comprehend, from beginning to end, the things YHVH does.
I know that there is nothing better for them to do than to be happy and enjoy themselves as long as they live.
Still, the fact that everyone can eat and drink and enjoy the good that results from all his work, is a gift of YHVH.”
This connected with my spirit. The gift of life is from YHVH and we should enjoy it no matter what is going on around us.
Let’s not focus on the negatives, but rather on the gift of life and salvation.
Yeshua came that we might have life and have it abundantly. That’s good news we can count on!
