Final Fortnight Redux August 2, 2014

We’re currently looking ahead to Tu b’Av, beginning at 12:26 PM Eastern time (which is sunset in Jerusalem) on Sunday, August 10th. For what it’s worth, the moment of full moon will be 1 hour and 44 minutes later, at 2:09 PM Eastern time. I’m not giddy … yet.

This past week, the pre-tribbers were accused of being “God-haters” for believing and preaching the idea that there will be a rapture event before God’s wrath is visited on this planet. Leaving personalities aside, it may be that this escalating hostile rhetoric is a sign that we are truly close to the end. I’m not convinced that it’s a “sign” per se, since the mainstream media and the culture at large have not picked up on it, at least not yet.

However, the hostility against Israel has become noticeably more intense and more global. That, to me is significant. They are speaking less of peace than of temporary cease-fires (also immediately violated by Hamas) and of Israel’s objective: to destroy (rather than just “contain” or “restrain”) their terrorist neighbors in Gaza. The tunneling strategy was apparently to be executed on Rosh Hashannah, and it’s seen as Providential that the Jews found out about it before the plan could be executed. In the meantime, Iran and their nuclear ambitions seem to have lost visibility, and the war in Syria is likewise not getting as much attention.

Putin in Russia seems to think there will be a major war in Europe soon. So this could be the “calm before the storm” even though things in Europe are barely calm. Well-orchestrated and well-funded “spontaneous” demonstrations against the Jews are daily news. The liberals in Congress now want to continue funding Israel’s “Iron Dome” project, while the Republicans are dragging their feet because of financial considerations. Congress has become incoherent.

Finally, the Ebola story is crowding its way into the headlines, replacing the invasion from Mexico and Central America (funded, managed and facilitated by the Regime). So lots of bad stuff to keep us distracted as the door of God’s mercy and the Church Age draw to a close. Lots of religious people are about to get the surprise of their lives. Eight days and counting …. Are you ready?

Are Pre-Tribbers "God-Haters"?

Global pressure on the state of Israel has skyrocketed in recent weeks. The Hebrews there and elsewhere must learn to rely on the Lord first, and weapons afterward.

He is near and so it’s proper to attend to the heavens in such days, as such signs were prophesied as prelude to the Parousia. It’s not proper however to dwell unnecessarily or with undue speculation and import on heavenly signs. Christ’s chief commandment was love, not obsession with near-earth portents.

A pre-wrath protection is guaranteed by Christ himself, through Patmos John, to the guardian and members of ‘Philadelphia’.
