We already had the “The First Seal: The Rider On The White Horse” and no one really noticed, otherwise known as W (Bush).
He made sure we wound up in the perpetual conflict we are in now. He called it a “generational war” remember?
Trump is “The Third Seal: The Rider On The Black Horse” — famine.
The Green Horseman (also known as the Pale Horseman) is the last of the Four Horseman to appear. Revelation says that multitudes of people will die during this time.
Giving his annual state of the nation speech, Mr Putin used video presentations to showcase the development of two new nuclear delivery systems that he said could evade detection. One video graphic appeared to show missiles raining down on the US state of Florida.
The weapons he boasted of included a cruise missile that he said could “reach anywhere in the world”.
He said of the West: “They need to take account of a new reality and understand … [this]… is not a bluff.”
Carl Gallups, a longtime Baptist pastor and radio host, suggest that the first five trumpet blasts of Revelation may have already occurred. If that is the case, the sixth trumpet, a world war that kills millions, could be knocking at the door.
Gallups said he did not write the book to scare people, nor does he claim any inside knowledge of God’s prophetic timetable.
Rather, his intent was to stimulate discussion and awaken the sleeping Christian church to the possibility that the return of Jesus Christ may be near. Because if it is, there are myriad scriptures that warn the brethren to be prepared, not to let the oil in their lamps run low like the parable Jesus told about the “foolish virgins.”
The sixth trumpet prophecy of Revelation Chapter 9 has long been viewed by many as a description of a massive war involving 200 million people occurring in the vicinity of the Euphrates River.
The war brings mass carnage, death and destruction to an area that Revelation 2:13 indicates is the seat of Satan’s earthly throne.
“The Euphrates River begins in Turkey and runs through Syria and Iraq. Those nations are major players in the Middle East upheaval of today and the main stomping grounds of ISIS,” Gallups said. “There are nearly 400 million Muslims living in the Middle East now. If a multinational war broke out in that area involving Iran, Russia, the U.S., Israel, North African nations, and possibly China – it is not hard to imagine at least 200 million people fighting a bloody war in the Middle East.”
Former Ukrainian ambassador in Washington, Yuri Shcherbak, who authored the book “The Strategic Role of Ukraine,” recently spoke out about the Ukraine’s unique potential as a flashpoint for World War III.
Glenn Beck, on his Feb. 16 radio show, said World War III is coming and “Nobody will recognize it yet.”
“Just like we were at the beginning of World War II when they invaded Poland, we are entering those times. We just don’t know it yet,” Beck said. “There is going to come a time when we will have no choice.”
Former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev warned that the Ukrainian crisis could evolve into World War III and, if it does, Vladimir Putin might find it “unavoidable” to launch Russian nuclear missiles.
Putin has also set the stage for a new world war by officially declaring that both NATO and the United States are the top threats to Russia.
If people can study history and see today’s events are simply the relabeled repeating of what empire has been doing for centuries, the public as a whole will be less likely to go along with what is in reality an exploitative, murderous crime spree of global proportions – merely sold to us as justified intervention.
The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse are described in the last book of the New Testament of the Bible, the Book of Revelation by John of Patmos, at 6:1-8. The chapter tells of a book or scroll in God‘s right hand that is sealed with seven seals. The Lamb of God opens the first four of the seven seals, which summons four beings that ride out on white, red, black, and pale horses.
President Trump is actually the man who will bring the Apocalypse.
“According to the Bible, the Antichrist will be a charismatic celebrity, a ‘big talker’ and a ‘smooth talker’.” “He will convince people that he alone has the solution to every problem. He will claim to be a deal-maker and a master negotiator.
“He will claim to know how to defend Israel and to create lasting peace in the Middle East. He will be an intimidator and a militant lover of power.”
He will exalt and magnify himself and claim to be the ‘only Savior’. He will deceive the masses, and even the very elect. The number 666 denotes arrogance, pride, egotism, the love of money and power, and militarism.
The Black Horse of the Apocalypse, has a rider and a set of scales, it is justice. His lethal power is a terrible, divine judgment on mankind for its violent oppression and greed, and it takes the form of famine and wasting through malnutrition.
The appearance of the Black horse and its rider will bring depression and want, with heavy taxation from the government holding the balances which should have spoken of justice and equity.
The third horse is the black horse of famine, which brings with it a global food shortage. This horse is as black as tar. You can hear his hooves pounding, his flanks heaving. You can see his nostrils flaring, as his great rage focuses on the human race.
He comes to bring global famine. Super markets will be stripped bare. Civil riots will break out over the lack of food! People will begin to know the aching, clawing sensation of true hunger. And it could happen across America and the nations of the world very soon.
The rider on the black horse holds up a balance and scale, declaring how much one simple meal will cost…the sum of one day’s wages. There will not be enough to share with family or friends. Just one meal for one day’s wages. Starving people in the coming global famine of the Great Tribulation will kill each other in order to eat.
The Anti-Christ will have complete control over all of the food on planet earth. The oil and wine discussed in the book of Revelation are food for the wealthy, also controlled by the Anti-Christ.
These rulers and their subordinates will stock their shelves with choice products from the state-owned supermarket; but the masses will starve to death, exactly like what happened in the Holocaust as Hitler and his Nazi regime had the finest of everything…and the Jews literally died of starvation in the concentration camps just a few feet away.
Even now we can hear the thunderous hooves of the four horses storming across the stage of human history, bringing deception, wars, hunger and death on a scale so massive it staggers the mind! The Bible makes it perfectly clear that God’s judgment is certain. Acts 17:31 tells us, “…because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man whom He has ordained. He has given assurance of this to all by raising Him from the dead.”
God judged Noah’s generation that mocked the message of salvation by sending a flood. He drowned every last human on planet earth. He is the ultimate judge and He will have the very last word…no matter what Congress rules or the UN decides. King Jesus will rule and reign with ultimate authority.
The word “Apocalypse” is a Greek word that means to remove the veil, to uncover or make clear. The purpose of the book of Revelation is to remove the veil and make clear what God’s plans are for the future of this world. God is saying to the church, “I am the God that knows the end from the beginning, and I am in total control!”
GET READY! The Anti-Christ is coming to produce a one world government, a one world religion and a one world currency.
Then when the Lamb opened the third seal I heard the third living creature saying, “Come!” So I looked, and here came a black horse! The one who rode it had a balance scale in his hand.
A mini nuclear war is being planned
A study by think tank the RAND Corporation – which, since Vietnam, has planned America’s wars – is entitled, War with China: Thinking Through the Unthinkable.
Commissioned by the US Army, the authors evoke the Cold War when RAND made notorious the catch cry of its chief strategist, Herman Kahn – “thinking the unthinkable”. Kahn’s book, On Thermonuclear War, elaborated a plan for a “winnable” nuclear war.
According to Amitai Etzioni, professor of international Affairs at George Washington University, “the United States is preparing for a war with China, a momentous decision that so far has failed to receive a thorough review from elected officials, namely the White House and Congress.”
However, “for the first time,” wrote Gregory Kulacki of non-profit organisation the Union of Concerned Scientists, “China is discussing putting its nuclear missiles on high alert so that they can be launched quickly on warning of an attack …
Less than five minutes. This is the approximate time that would elapse from President Trump’s decision to launch a nuclear strike against China to shooting intercontinental ballistic missiles out of their silos, according to Bloomberg estimations. The publication, citing former Minuteman missile-launch officer Bruce G. Blair, also estimates that it would take about 15 minutes to fire submarine missiles from their tubes.
The black horse and its rider are doing their job, cultivating and reaping the seeds sown in war and oppression: scarcity and famine. Hard on its heels comes another reaper, who sweeps up and destroys what his fellows leave behind.
The horrors brought on by the Four Horsemen are only the beginning of the End: after that the Tribulation cranks up to intolerable levels and suffering will take over the entire world. Eventually the full measure of God’s wrath will be poured out on the earth.
GOD’S SIGNS FOR THE “END TIMES” STARTED IN 2001
What is a Shemitah Year…? The Shemitah Year is the seventh year of the seven-year agricultural cycle mandated by the Torah for the Land of Israel and still observed in contemporary Judaism. When Moses received the Levitical law, God gave the commandment to rest on the seventh day… the Sabbath. Moses also applied the cycles of “seven” to weeks and years. A cycle of seven weeks points to the 50th day, called Pentecost. And a cycle of seven sets of seven years points to the 50th year, the year of Jubilee. The year of Jubilee is based on letting the land rest every seventh year as follows; “For six years sow your fields, and for six years prune your vineyards and gather their crops. But in the seventh year the land is to have a Sabbath of rest, a Sabbath to the Lord.” (Leviticus 25:3-4)
The Shemitah year of 2001… America was attacked by radical Islamic terrorists killing nearly three thousand people on 9/11 and this sad day became America’s new day of… discredit and humiliation!
The Shemitah year of 2008… America experienced a stock market crash on September 29 when the market fell 777 points in one day. It was the greatest one-day decline in the history of Wall Street. All this happening on the 29th of Elul which is the day preceding the seventh month (Tishri) on the Hebrew calendar, in the seventh year of the Jewish Shemitah, on the seventh year anniversary of the previous record Dow drop which also happened on the 29th of Elul on the Hebrew calendar, (the day before the seventh month) on the previous seven year Jewish Shemitah.
Just as the crash of the stock markets of 2008 was also the aftershock of 9/11 the extended after-shock correlated with Isaiah 9:10. And, these two events were tied together impossible to unravel…
Seven years apart! This too goes deeper still. The Biblical Year isn’t based on the Western Gregorian calendar but on the Hebrew Lunar calendar. So the seven year cycle of the Shemitah has to be based not on the Western year but on the Hebrew year… So no matter what date it is on the Western calendar the Shemitah will always end on the 29th day of Elul of the Hebrew calendar and in 2008 it fell exactly on September 29th the day of the crash. But, in other years the same day in the Biblical calendar would fall on a different day in the Western calendar.
The Blood Moon Tetrad of 2014/15 coincides with the beginning of the “Shemitah” as well a “Jubilee Year”… which begins this coming Yom Kippur. A Jubilee (50th) year comes after seven sabbatical cycles of seven years and is more amazing that a Jubilee convergence with the “Four Blood Moon” all happening together.
GOD’S SIGN: THE BLOOD MOONS
The eclipse of April 15, 2014 occurred at a specific place in the heavens. As a time marker that points to the sign of Revelation 12, it has great significance. This eclipse on Passover 2014 occurred right next to star of Spica in Virgo. Jesus’ own body was sacrificed for us on Passover. He was the Seed of the Woman. He was the ear of grain that must die that life may abound. Spica in Hebrew is Zerah meaning “seed”–the Seed of the Woman. It is the same word as found in the promises of Genesis. It is fitting then that this sign of the lunar eclipse points to the sign of Revelation 12, which speaks of the Messiah’s birth, but also to the necessary second part of Jesus’ coming back to earth.
THE NEXT SIGN THAT GOD GAVE US WAS THE SOLAR ECLIPSE we just experienced.
Jews have a (bracha) blessing for everything that brings benefit. They do not have a blessing for this event and therefore don’t say a blessing for an eclipse. The Hebrew word meaning for eclipse gives the answer away… “Likui” “defect.” The Torah (first five Books of the Bible) states, that an eclipse (“Likui” / “defect”) of the sun is a bad sign for the world; a lunar eclipse is a bad sign for Israel. Being associated with bad signs the eclipse was not assigned a blessing.
From Space.com: What is unusual about this month’s lunar eclipse is that it is the first of a series of four total lunar eclipses in a row. Called a tetrad, such a series of four total eclipses in a row is a fairly rare event. The last such series happened in the years 2003 and 2004. It will only occur seven more times in the current century.
From a previous article: A total solar eclipse will cross the continental United States this summer, an event that hasn’t happened in roughly a century.
Everyone will experience on Aug. 21, 2017 at least 60 percent of the sun being covered and the resulting semidarkness. Those within about a 60-mile wide diagonal line from the Pacific Northwest through South Carolina will see the sky go dark and feel the temperature drop.
In some areas of the country, the darkness will last more than two minutes and 30 seconds.
Pastor Mark Biltz, the man who discovered the “Blood Moons” phenomenon and a Christian who urges careful attention to heavenly signs, suggests there may be something more to the eclipse.
Such as a direct warning to the United States.
“From a biblical point of view, a solar eclipse is meant as a sign from God,” “In Genesis 1:14, God declared this to be so. It is a sign that is beyond man’s control, something he can’t manipulate. Solar eclipses become biblically and prophetically significant and relevant when man understands their timing according to the biblical calendar and where they happen. Then we look for the patterns.
“As the sun is larger than the moon, the sun represents the nations of the world and the moon represents the nation of Israel, as their calendar months are based on the cycle of the moon while the nations of the world follow the sun for their calendar. When there is a total solar eclipse, it is a warning to a specific nation or nations depending on its path.”
“Just look at the biblical pattern. Many know the story of Jonah and Nineveh from the Bible, but not the historical background events as to what had already transpired, and why they repented.
“An archaeological find of cuneiform tablets was found in the 19th century describing events in Nineveh. A famous eclipse mentioned in the tablets was known as the Bur-Sagale eclipse, which is verified by NASA as occurring on June 15, 763 BC. The path of totality was right over Nineveh. God had declared the sun and the moon were for signs, and now the Ninevites saw the wrath of God coming even before Jonah arrived a couple months later. When Jonah arrived, they were ripe for repentance.”
“Now fast-forward to another solar eclipse on August 21, but this time in 1914,” he said. “This is the first day of the month of Elul, which begins the month of repentance. The first of Elul is when Jonah began prophesying for 40 days. Just before the eclipse, we see on June 28th, 1914, through the month of August, the events of World War 1 begin! The path of totality of the eclipse was over Eastern Europe and the Ottoman Empire or Middle East, including Nineveh again.
This was foretelling the destruction of the Ottoman Empire in World War I.”
Biltz suggests such cataclysms may be in store for the United States, especially given the timing of the event.
“Now, this Aug 21, 2017, we have a total solar eclipse going over the United States,” he noted. “This is again at the beginning the month of repentance on the first of Elul! Could God be giving us a warning that we need to repent or judgment will be coming to the United States.
SIGN OF REVELATION:12
“Another very significant sign in the heavens is happening right after this year’s total solar eclipse on the first of Elul, beginning the month of repentance,” he noted. “A month later, we find during the Days of Awe from Rosh Hashanah on Tishri 1 and Yom Kippur on Tishri 10, there will be a confirmation of celestial events as described in the Book of Revelation. Revelation 12: 1-2 reads: ‘A great sign was seen in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. She was with child. She cried out in pain, laboring to give birth.’
“The woman clothed with the sun is the constellation Virgo and represents the nation of Israel. The 12 stars represent the 12 tribes of Israel. Interestingly, the constellation Leo, the Lion, which is above Virgo, is made up of nine stars. The Lion represents specifically the tribe of Judah. It just so happens this year during the Days of Awe, three planets will join the constellation Leo making up 12 stars.
Virgo will be clothed with the sun, and the moon will be under her feet, fulfilling this sign to precise detail!”
Biltz believes these are signs God is reinserting Himself into human history as prophecy becomes fulfilled as never before. Therefore, Biltz says, it is especially important for Christians to “learn from history” and lead a movement for repentance.
“I recommend believers unite in fasting and praying for our nation,” he said. “This eclipse is just before the month of Elul, which is known as the month of repentance before the Fall Feasts. We find this begins at the same time Jesus, Yeshua, went into the wilderness for 40 days after being immersed by John, coming out just before Yom Kippur.
“This begins the same time Moses went back up the mount to make atonement for the sin of the golden calf, coming down on Yom Kippur.
“This is the same time frame Jonah went to Nineveh telling them to repent before judgment would fall on Yom Kippur! So according to ‘God’s Day Timer,’ the United States has 40 days to repent by Yom Kippur, as judgment will be meted out over the following year.”
As I understand God’s wrath it often is through pestilence, famine, and the sword. In other words chastisements – punishments! Why? To wake us up! That we might repent or turn – believe, and live
Far more rich than this is the meditation that the wrath of God is essentially in us. It is our experience of the incompatibility of sin before God.
The sign of Revelation 12 makes sense as a sign warning to us all that the Tribulation is coming, just as depicted in the sign itself with the virgin (Israel) about to go through tribulation. For the Church, our time is then short. The requirements of the sign make it extremely rare making 2017 the only year in which it coincides with the final generation.
1947/8 REBIRTH OF ISRAEL AS A NATION
1947/8 + 70 year generation = 2017/8. The tribulation begins in 2017/8 and the Second Coming in 2038.
Since 1917 when Israel was given the legal right to return to the land that this was the pre-condition to fulfill Ezekiel 36 and 37 plus many other prophecies dealing with the return. This significant date in the history of the world marked a ‘turning point’ in God’s prophetic timetable, namely that the latter of the last days and/or the last generation to which the Lord Jesus would return had begun.
A generation that has a starting point also has an ending point. I believe all the numbers in scripture that identify a specific generation and/or important events predict the end time generation. Let me explain:
The numbers 100 ,70, 50, and 40 all have to do with prophecy fulfilled or a significant period of time to which we need to pay close attention:
Israel was in the Egyptian captivity for 400 years (some manuscript say 430) or 4 generations of 100 years each.
Israel was in the Babylonian captivity for 70 years. Daniel speaks of a period of 70 Weeks of Years or 490 years (70×7) as spiritual punishment for Israel’s sins. 469 years have been fulfilled.
The Jubilee Year was 50 years in which the land and people were released – delivered and set free. It is a pivotal year in the history of Israel.
The number 40 is a period of complete testing for a nation and a individual.
Taken together, I believe they mean the following:
In 1917 The Balfour declaration was issued giving the Jews legal right to return and settle their land. 100 years from 1917 is 2017.
In 1947/8 Israel became a nation after 2500 years of exile. 70 years from 1948 is 2017/8.
In 1967 Israel captured and controlled the city of Jerusalem for the first time since the Babylonian captivity. 50 years from 1967 is 2017 speaking of liberation for Jerusalem by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ back to earth.
40 years from 1977-78 is 2017-18.
The amazing thing about the above is that each period ends in “2017-2018” the period I believe begins with the last three weeks of seven years and ends the last generation with the Second Coming of Christ. Now in case you think that I stuck the numbers in to make them fit my scenario, here is the explanation:
The first use of the number for a generation is 100 and is found in the book of the beginnings – Genesis 15:13,16. In that passage, God told Abraham that the Israelite’s would serve Egypt for 400 years and come out in the 4th generation. The “Law of Beginnings” or “first mention” applies here, meaning that a first mention of a principle or action of God becomes the starting point for further revelation. Therefore, in Genesis, the book of beginnings, we have the first mention of the length for a biblical generation – 100 years.
The Balfour declaration issued in 1917 was the “first official act” to allow the Jews to return to the land of Israel. Therefore, we apply 100 years (The first mention of a time period for a generation) to the first mention or first legal act allowing the Jews to return to the land of Israel.
Having already used the number 100 as the beginning number for a complete biblical generation, we cannot use it again. The next number we use is 70 because 70 is the number that also represents a period of captivity and the first number to be used in relation to Israel’s beginning years of captivity after entering the promised land and becoming an independent theocratic monarchy with a king and a priesthood. The Law of First mention or first beginnings applies here also.
The number 70, unlike the number 100, is associated with Israel’s “nation-state” – both physical and spiritual captivities. Therefore, we must apply the number 70 to Israel’s return to the land and re-birth as a nation in 1947/8 plus 70 years is 2017-18.
Now that we have already used the numbers 1oo and 70, we cannot use them again for to do so would be forcing something to fit a preferred scenario.
The next significant date on Israel’s prophetic timetable (Actually God’s) is 1967. In that year, Israel liberated Jerusalem from Arab control and it became the undivided capital of the state of Israel.
What biblical number is associated with “liberation?” The number 50 or the Year of Jubilee. Daniel 9:24-27 speaks of the prophecy to consummate God’s prophetic timetable for the people of Israel and the city of Jerusalem. Israel and the city of Jerusalem will be liberated when Messiah Jesus returns to earth at the battle of Armageddon. 50 years 1967 is 2017-18. This will be the starting-point of the last three weeks of 3 x 7 years!
That leaves only one number left, the number 40. We have already shown that it is associated with testing to determine the condition of the heart – whether one will obey God or not. Israel reached maturity in 1977-78 as predicted by Jesus in Matthew 24:32 and entered into the final years of testing. 40 years from 1977-78 is 2017-18.
We just do not have that much time left. God is winding things down on planet earth and we happen to be the people of the end generation; consider it a privilege, not a burden!
We see that, even though tragic events lie ahead, the good news is that God will intervene to save humanity and guide mankind into His abundant way of life. Jesus Christ will return to raise His followers from death and establish God’s perfect rule over the earth. This is the wonderful, inspiring meaning of the Feast of Trumpets. Christ taught us to pray to the Father, “Thy kingdom come” (Matthew 6:10, KJV).
The greatest build-up of American-led military forces since the Second World War is well under way, in the northern hemisphere, on the western borders of Russia and in Asia and the Pacific, confronting China.
Almost two-thirds of US naval forces have been transferred to Asia and the Pacific.
The US has also encircled China with 400 military bases armed with bombers, warships and missiles capable of delivering nuclear weapons.
These bases extend all the way from Australia to the Pacific islands, through Asia to Korea and Japan and across Eurasia to Afghanistan.
Xi Jinping Says China Has To Prepare For War
China’s President Xi Jinping has ordered the military region responsible for monitoring the South China Sea and Taiwan to pay a special attention to the current situation in the region and boost its capabilities so it can handle any emergency.
“It’s necessary to strengthen the mission … and concentrate preparations for fighting a war,” Xi said during an inspection tour made on October 25 as part of his visit to Guangdong province, according to state broadcaster CCTV. “We need to take all complex situations into consideration and make emergency plans accordingly.”
Xi emphasized that the Southern Theater Command has had to bear a “heavy military responsibility” in recent years. He stated that the Chinese military has “to step up combat readiness exercises, joint exercises and confrontational exercises to enhance servicemen capabilities and preparation for war”.
