THE GRAPEVINE PROPHECIES

The best way to begin this topic is with a visit to a very familiar passage.

Matthew 24:6-8 “And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes in divers places.
All these are the beginning of sorrows.”

As we prayerfully watch, we should take heed to the words of Jesus “see that ye be not troubled.” We must be a strong testimony for Jesus in these times.

Over the past weekend, a possible senario has been on my heart. To most, it will seem unfeasable and to all who would be affected by such a thing, it will be troubling. The first exibit of this senario is a dream that Steve Quayle had several years ago; one which he periodically refers to when a topic of discussion warrants a revisiting. In this dream, he saw pristine wheat fields, as one would encounter in the plains states. The wheat was near its time of harvest, however, there was a peculiar element to the scene. These fields were surrounded by guard towers and fencing topped with razor wire; a scene that may be reminiscent of what trasnpired during the “Holomidor.” Such a dream fortells of a coming sorrowful season; wherein elements of some nations military (or perhaps a global military) are charged with guarding commodoties.

The second element involves the numerous reports (although they cannot be “undeniably confirmed”) of a buildup of pre-positioned Chinese troops in both Mexico and Canada, along with foreign military units stationed in the continental U.S. The latest report involves a trucker who is a former army ranger. He recently delivered a shipment of produce to a base located sixty miles south of Laredo TX which was occupied by military units belonging to the peoples Republic of China.  Still another report comes from a railway worker who states that he and his crew have been working fourteen hour days, laying track in Nebraska. (I cannot find a collaborating link. I heard it on a broadcast that I routinely monitor) If one visits the dreams and visions that Henry Gruver, Dimitru Duduman, and others have had, a picture emerges wherein a massive military assault upon this country is in the future. Look for internal upheaval, followed by moves from without.

These items tend to be speculative in nature, however, the following, reports can be documented. The province of Shangdong has experienced a horrific draught; making it necessary for China to purchase wheat on the world market. China is the primary holder of U.S. debt. An astonishing amount of U.S. industry is now located in China. A significant number of U.S. military personnel are “out of country” and as of this weekend, we have become involved in the Libya conflict. (How deep we are drawn into this is a mystery, along with a bigger picture which may have Meitreya involvement) The middle east is in orchestrated upheaval. Globalist billionaire George Soros has identified the Chinese style of administration as being his “preferred model” for the coming world government. He also believes that an orderly decline of the U.S. dollar is necessary and he is personally working toward this end.

To top it off, over the last couple of days, I’ve been contemplating a bulk purchase of the tract “Gods Simple Plan of Salvation” in Chinese. (Lifegate prints this tract in every major language) Then, when the T-72s are rolling down our street, I’ll have something to offer the accompanying intantry. (and possibly secure for myself a swift exit from the theater of atoms)  I’m currently in prayer to discern if this is God or my imagination. Because, if this senario does not manifest, I’ll have spent money on  boxes of tracts that will probably never be distributed. This is a prime example of why we must be in a place of hearing the still small voice of the Holy Spirit. Our own conclusions on a given matter; based on the collective feedback from our senses, coupled with reports that we consider to be reliable, and seasoned with the unique slantings of our personal worldview, will “never” present to us an accurate picture.

Jesus talked of wars; events which are undeniable, and rumors of wars, such as the situation presented in this post. At the moment it’s a rumor (wait; let me check out the window…ok) but in the future, it could well become a reality that few in this country have ever considered. In other places, wars and rumors are the order of the day. Throughout the middle east, we are hearing of revolts against governments. One has resulted in the establishing of a military government (Egypt) while another seems to be growing into a civil war. (Libya) Uprisings in Yemen and Bahrain are bringing chaos dangerously close to Saudi Arabia. If the house of Saud becomes unstable and the flow of oil is disrupted, the west will quickly descend into chaos. At the moment, determining what is a reliable report and what is heresay seems impossible. And yet we can expect confusion of such magnitude to be the norm as scriptural fulfilment plays out.

As if the geo-political scene isn’t unfathomably complex enough, the issues addressed in the following passage are almost completely unpredictable from a natural standpoint. (It was already touched on in the opening passage, so I’ll refer to the angle presented by Luke)

Luke 21:11 “And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.”

These are events that usually crop up with little or no warning. Two weeks ago, nobody could have forseen the situation now playing out on the northeast coast of Japan. This situation has also fostered an incredible amount of disinformation; especially surrounding the severety of the situation surrounding the Fukushima nuclear facility. (Such reportings will oftentimes be slanted in accordance to ones personal view on an issue.) Even the origin of the earthquake is under scrutiny. Some; including people whom I routinely listen to, have suggested that the earthquake may have been the result of an attack, using a form of scaler-type technology,  due to certain authorities in Japan suggesting that they should begin fielding a nuclear arsenal. I think that it was a natural event. This nation has had similar occurrances in the past; albeit not of this magnitude. And yet, while this nation has experienced similar situations  in previous seasons, this one could have had sinister promptings. One cannot rule it out.

Jesus talked about “Mens hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth.” This brings us to the most dangerous issue of all; that being spiritual deception. In times of uncertainty, people will often look for spiritual answers. At their wits end, they will cleave to anyone who seems to have the answers to what’s transpiring; especially if those solutions don’t draw attention to our fallen nature and our need for the Savior. And if the level of mis-information in the physical world is high, the amount of sdpiritual deception in our day is “off the charts.” In fact, it’s the first thing that Jesus warned us of. “Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ, and shall deceive many. When we consider the state of the church today; the rampant apostasy and lifeles form of godliness found in many venues, a most disturbing picture begins to emerge. Few seem to have any discernment whatsoever. “If the pastor says it or “if the other saints are doing it, it’s ok.” Two scriptures come to mind:

II Timothy 4:3 “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but with their own lusts shall heap to themselves teachers having itching ears.
And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”

The words “with their own lusts” are pivotal. a false way will always cater to the three lusts. (flesh, eye, pride of life)

II Peter 2:1 “But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.”

I need to wrap this up for two reasons. First, it’s about to surpass 1400 words. Secondly, it’s about to go into a somewhat different aspect of this. (Then it will be at 2800 words) The basic conclusion to all of this is that we need to be close to Jesus, grounded in his word atuned to the Holy Spirit, and watching.  We all know this, however, many of us don’t practice, with all diligence, the keeping of our heart. We’re so busy with the myriad of obligations that we can unwittingly become negligent in the things that truly matter. We cannot underestimate the dangers associated with the time of the end; specifically those that would cause a heart to wonder after a falsehood. May we all be sober-minded and prayerful as these events continue to unfold.

Blessings always in Jesus name.

I John 4:4 “Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.”

Jude 20-21 “But ye, beloved, building up your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,
Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.

    Right on the money with this post; it is truly amazing how these bizarre and insane [3rd war in Lybia] events are accelerating, one after the other. Clearly we are headed for an unprecedented crash perhaps on the order of Revelation 18.. The real question is can we witness and confess Christ when we are starving to death? Or when we are watching our kids starve and get sick? When the powers that be see the rebellions and tax revolts unravel our country, they will strike back as ruthlessly as any muslim tyrant. I have a feeling that local congregations will be important in these times as people seek something beyond the grim physical realm. The mainline churches will be useless but the more Biblically faithful ones will have a chance….I hope…. to withstand the persecution. It is a grim time, but the arrival of the Kingdom is described as labor pains in the New Testament, and there will be intense pain before that birth is complete.
    Hebrews 11 is perfect for a time such as ours….we cannot be too attached to the current world system because ultimately it is the enemy, the whore of babylon. Stay rooted in the Word… and the weapons of the Spirit Eph. 6 …
    Thanks for your writings and God bless.

  2. My heart is really broken over these things that are happening, but I know in Matthew 24:6,8 – “…see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass…” and “All these are the beginning of sorrows.”

    I just read that Portugal’s government toppled and Canada’s government is shaking. And yet, another earthquake in Thailand.

    “Men’s hearts will fail them…” – they will have heart attacks.

    Even so, come Lord Jesus.

  3. Hi Dan. Thanks so much for your input on this. You touched on a question that we all must ask of ourselves. “Will we stand for Jesus when those closest to us are wanting. A wanting that can be quickly remedied by receiving a mark. How dangerous these times are. This should cause all of us to continually examine ourselves; asking the Lord to reveal any seeds of unbelief and abiding close to him.

    Revelation 12:11 reveals how we overcome. By the blood of the Lamb, the word of our testimony, and by loving not our lives unto the death. The third part is the one that few ever consider to be a real possibility.

    Thanks again for stopping by. Hope to hear from you again if time permits. Blessings always in Jesus name

  4. Hi Code. Thanks so much for stopping by. I’m listening to the truNews broadcast from last night even as I write this. So much transpiring at the same time. If we abide in Christ and stay close to him, we’ll be in a place to be not troubled. Saddened greatly, by the incredible loss of life, but not rattled. The eternal souls around, us who know not the Lord, need us to be faithful ambassadors. One thing that Rick Wiles discussed earlier in the broadcast was the saint who is ministering in Japan within the radiation cloud. His outlook is simply “I have one shot to reach them.” This is truly a saint who has taken Revelation 12:11 to heart. We must all take it to heart.

    The past 24 hours have been a time of incredible prayer, specifically for the lost, coupled with upheaval in the physical. Those who love Jesus will just want to let go of everything that’s not eternal and be about the Fathers business as we see the day approaching.

    Thanks again for stopping and for always offering encouragement. Blessings always in Jesus name.

  5. Hi Timbob,

    Yes, there is definitely a shaking going on in the physical realm with all the earthquakes and natural disasters we’ve been having and governments toppling, wars, etc. What is even more disturbing to me is the “shaking” of many preachers I know who once seemed so solid and strong in apostolic doctrine. We truly are living in the last days. I want to be ready for His soon coming!

    Watching and praying,
    Carol

  6. Hi Carol. You touch on something that may be the mosy shocking of all; at least to the saints. Seeing those who were once solid in the faith begin to waver is hard to fasthom; especially after tasting the incredible goodness of the Lord. Drifting can begin in such seemingly harmless fashion. It reminds us to, all the more, keep our hearts with all diligence. Also to pray form abd emcourage each other. Hebrews 10:22-25 is profound as we are admonished to stay in fellowship as we see the day approaching.

    Thanks so much for stopping by. B;essings always in Jesus name.

  8. Hi Trizzy. Thanks so much for stopping by. It’s always a blessing to encounter those of like faith. We’ve been under a lot of trials lately, but God is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think.

    Blesings always in Jesus name.
