This page is designed to help you stay informed as to how Bible prophecy is being fulfilled in current events.
I have found that, often, important national and international events that indicate Bible prophecy being fulfilled are not reported by mainstream media. So, I cull both mainstream and non-mainstream sources for news items that reflect fulfilled prophecy and add those items to this page with short blogs about how they indicate fulfilled prophecy. Links to more detailed source articles are also included.
The primary purpose of this page is to share with anyone who is interested the amazing way that the Lord's "sure Word of prophecy" is rapidly being fulfilled in these Last Days.
Basically, this is an invitation to take the blinders off and see reality, which is increasingly hidden from us by the government and mainstream media, for what it is and what Yahuah's ("God's") Word has to say about it.
As you read through these blogs, look for trends toward the fulfillment of six primary "End of the Age" Bible prophecies:
Please see Psalm 83, Ezekiel 38, Matthew 24, and the Revelation Understood! Commentary on chapters 6, 13, 17 and 18 for details.
Also, to see how you can read, for free, an up-to-date, 310-page commentary that thoroughly explains current and near-future events in the light Bible prophecy, watch this YouTube video.
Meanwhile, here are some suggestions to help you best use this page to stay on top of what is happening in the world in the light of Bible prophecy:
Yeshua (Jesus) warned, "Lay not up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal" (Matthew 6:19-20). Couldn't the same be said about destruction by fire?
Most "Christians" are lamenting the destruction by fire of the Notre Dame Cathedral - the most frequently visited landmark (even more than the Eiffel Tower) in Paris. They do not understand the Scriptures - even the sayings of the Messiah Himself.
The burning of the Notre Dame Cathedral is just a warning to those who are attempting to build the Kingdom of God on Earth before the King of kings and Lord of lords returns in person to do that (read Revelation 19 & 20). Keep laying up your treasures on Earth rather than in Heaven and perish with those treasures.
For years, this watchman has been warning anyone who will listen of the Bible prophecy that, sooner or later, the United States of America will be taken over by a globalist/Islamic cabal (cf. Jeremiah 51:1-4, 6-9, 11-14, 27-28, 33). Yes, the prophecies of Jeremiah and many other Old Covenant Scriptures (“Old Testament”) prophecies had a near future fulfillment in the takeover and destruction of ancient Babylon by the Medes and the Persians. But, when we compare those prophecies with the prophecies of Revelation 17 and 18, it is obvious that they will also be fulfilled at the “end of the age” (Matthew 24:3) in the takeover and destruction of modern, prophesied Babylon the Great.
And, to anyone who has been paying attention to the news, it is obvious that the globalist/socialist/Islamic takeover of America Babylon has begun. It is amazing how rapidly the freshmen Congress representatives – the hyper-globalist/socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the anti-Semitic Muslims Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib – and their sycophant cohorts are taking control of the U.S. House of Representatives.
Also, it is becoming more and more clear that the reason Donald Trump is president of the U.S. is just to give Jewish and Christian Bible believers in America a little more time to “come out of” Babylon the Great (spiritually) and to warn our loved ones to do the same, before the holocaust hits us. That will happen very quickly after Donald Trump, whether because of impeachment, assassination, or election, is no longer president.
Please read the following linked article and linked video for examples of articles and videos that confirm this warning.
And contact me at Contact Watchman Bob for abundant Scriptural support for any of the assertions in this report concerning Bible prophecy and for help in knowing what our Creator and Heavenly Father tells His people in America Babylon to do to be saved from the soon-coming holocaust.
Trump in 2020, Jesus in 2024
It is a well-known fact that, in particular, New York City does represent the new or present day Babylon (U.S.A.). And the Statue of Liberty on Liberty
Do not be deceived. The increasing rift between the Left and the Right in America is not as benign as the movement of the Left toward liberalism, "progressivism," or even socialism. The Left is moving inexorably toward communism. If the Democrats and other leftists regain power in Washington, the U.S.A. will rapidly be destroyed as a free, sovereign nation and will quickly become just another oppressive, communist regime, as Venezuela has become.
Barack Obama, when he was president, started the decline of America toward communism. Ominously, more and more pundits are speculating that Michelle Obama, Barack's wife, is waiting for the perfect, opportune moment to enter the 2020 election race for president. If that happens and Michelle wins, it's all over for the America that we have known all our lives.
This watchman believes that the presidency of Donald Trump is just a temporary reprieve from the decline of America, giving believers in the soon-coming Messiah a little more time to get out the Gospel. Let's be diligent to do that while we have time.
"As long as it is day, we must do the works of Him who sent Me. Night is coming, when no one can work." (John 9:4)
Pope Francis and Ahmad el-Tayeb, the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar, have just signed the joint “Document on Human Fraternity for World Peace and Living Together” – a significant step toward uniting Roman Catholicism and Islam. And they did this “in the name of God who has created all human beings equal in rights, duties and dignity.” That begs the question of what the name of that god (with a lower-case g) who unites Roman Catholicism and Islam is, doesn’t it?
The Bible clearly prophesies that, at the end of the age, all the false religions of the world will worship and unite under the “son of perdition,” the “man of lawlessness,” the “anti-messiah” (Antichrist), the “beast” who will be the incarnation of and empowered by Satan/the devil and who will declare himself to be “God” (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4; 1 John 2:18; Revelation 13:4-8). And this will be the global false religion of which Roman Catholicism is the prototype that is called “Mystery Babylon the Great” (Revelation 17:3-5; 15).
Let us beware that we are not sucked into the rapidly-developing, global, ecumenical movement and end up worshiping and following the false messiah rather than the true Messiah Yeshua (Jesus).
Here is a doctrinal issue that may make a difference in your eternal destiny. Read carefully.
Most of the time, we think of Replacement Theology as the doctrine of the replacement of Israel as God’s (Yahuah’s) chosen people by the Christian Church. But there is another version of Replacement Theology that is just as pernicious, and that is the doctrine that the descendants of Jacob are the only people of Yahuah (God), and Gentiles will be excluded from the Messianic Kingdom unless they are “grafted into” (physical) Israel.
Both views are totally unscriptural and divide the body of the Messiah, in whom there is no distinction between Gentiles and Jews (Romans 10:12; Galatians 3:28; Colossians 3:11). So, let us be careful that we are not judged because we discriminate either way.
On the other hand, the Lord’s plans for the roles of the Israelis who look forward in faith to coming Messiah and those Jews and Gentiles who are already followers of the soon-coming Messiah Yahshua (Jesus) are very different.
Please read the essays
A Doctrinal Flaw, The Subtle Demise of True Christianity, and Who are the People of Yahuah ("God") for details.
This should be very simple. The Babylon of the old saints was an enemy of Israel. Not once did Israel side with Babylon in Babylon's wars except as slaves.
Right before our eyes, the stage is being set for the fulfillment of two, major end-times Bible prophecies – one an Old Covenant Scriptures (“Old Testament”) prophecy, and the other a New Covenant Scriptures (“New Testament”) prophecy.
Ezekiel 38 foretells that, “in the latter years,” certain nations of the Middle East and North Africa – primarily from what is now Turkey and Iran – will come against Israel from the north and attempt to annihilate that nation. As you read this blog, the stage is being set for that catastrophic event. The forces of Turkey, Iran, and their terrorist proxies are gathering in and around Syria, north of Israel, with the ultimate intention of annihilating Israel. Read Bill Wilson’s 1/29/19 and 1/30/19 blogs at the linked site for details.
Then, Revelation 18 prophesies another catastrophic event -- the total destruction of the world’s last superpower nation, modern Babylon the Great. For irrefutable proof that the United States of America is that nation, please read Who is Modern Babylon the Great? here: Who is Modern Babylon the Great?. Also, Yahshua (“Jesus”) stated, “Every kingdom [or nation] divided against itself is brought to desolation” (Matthew 12:25). Who can deny that America is completely divided against itself, and the animosity between the sides is intensifying daily, bringing this nation inexorably to destruction?
Do not be deceived into complacency, my friend. We can stick our heads in the sand, ignore reality, and perish, or we can face up to what's happening and cry out to the Lord Yahuah ("God") to save us. The prophetic Word is always 100% accurate. The End is very near. Let us make sure that our heart is right with our Maker and let us be sure that we are prepared to meet him at any time now. And let us be helping any who will listen to do the same.
Here are some prophesied global trends to watch in 2019:
Here are some prophesied trends to watch in America this year:
This week, in their blind hatred for Donald Trump and their desperation to overthrow his presidency, the Democrats and the Liberal Left Media have had two situations that they have attempted to exploit in their quest backfire – blow up in their faces.
First, the tables have been turned on Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi after she tried to manipulate Trump into ending his government shutdown by disinviting him to make his yearly State of the Union Address in the chambers of the House of Representatives, when Trump made a fool of her by postponing her government-funded trip to Europe and the Middle East just before the Speaker was scheduled to leave. Then, to diffuse Pelosi’s accusation that Trump was just being petty toward her, the President limited all government-funded trips abroad for members of Congress until after the shutdown ends. Finally, Trump has refused to delay his State of the Union Address, highlighting Pelosi’s pettiness in demanding that he do that and stating that, if he has to, he will give the speech at another venue.
Second, the Liberal Left Media has ended up with egg on its face after it attempted to exploit a situation to make Trump supporters look bad when a native American, Nathan Phillips, confronted a MAGA-hat-wearing high school kid, Nick Sandmann, beating his drum next to Sandmann's head and chanting in his face. The LL Media immediately tried to present the situation as Sandmann being disrespectful to Phillips when video footage showed it was actually the other way around. It was a publicity stunt by Phillips who turned out to be a fraud, just attempting to draw attention to himself and make money off the situation. Of course, President Trump is now highlighting the LL Media's coverage as a classic example of “fake news.”
So, the drama in Washington continues. When will the government shutdown end? Where will the President’s State of the Union Address be held and what will he say? Will the Democrats cave in and approve appropriations for building the Wall? Will Trump be forced out of office?
One thing is clear: Donald Trump is no pushover. In fact, he is a master at turning situations that make him look bad around to make his opponents look worse. The stand-off will not end without more fireworks . . . probably, major explosions. Stay tuned.
Meanwhile, remember that “Every kingdom [or nation] that is divided against itself will be brought to desolation” (Matthew 12:25). So, let us prepare for the end of the U.S.A. as a free, sovereign nation and be laying our treasures up in Heaven, rather than on Earth (Matthew 6:19-20).
Bible prophecy concerning the soon-coming demise of America is continuing to be rapidly fulfilled. The Hegelian Dialectic – antithesis leading to destruction leading to a new synthesis – is having its way in this nation. The more President Trump pushes his agenda, the more the Left reacts. And that conflict is rapidly reaching the point of critical mass.
Now that the Democrats have gained control of the House of Representatives, they are increasingly, with the support of media propaganda, enabled to frustrate Trump’s Make America Great Again agenda. The Democrat’s strategy is apparent: they want to discredit Trump and tie his executive hands to the extent that he will be forced to resign. Then, they will do the same to Mike Pence, who will take over as President. Then, who will take over as President? Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. Imagine that horrible scenario if you can.
If Pelosi and the Democrats take over, there will be a tremendous backlash of the Liberal Left, the Socialists, the Globalists that will throw the doors of America wide open to its invasion, uprising, and destruction by illegal immigrants, criminals, and Muslim terrorists. And that will be the end of the United States of America as a free, sovereign nation.
And that is exactly what the Bible prophesies. Watch the linked YouTube video and read Who is Modern Babylon the Great? for details.
Are you ready for The End? (Is your heart right with Yahuah ["God"]?)
President Donald Trump is known as a master negotiator. One ploy of great deal-makers is to grant a small, highly-desired concession but to then use that concession as leverage to get something more valuable in exchange. And that is exactly what Trump is doing with Israel.
Trump facilitated the move of the U.S. Embassy to Israel. That was a highly-desired concession to Israel. But now, what does the president want in return? He wants Israel to approve the two-state solution – the establishment of a Palestinian state on the West Bank. After previously stating that he was going to leave the resolution of the conflict with the Palestinians up to Israel, Trump is now stating, “I like the two-state solution. That’s what I think works best…. It has been a dream of mine to be able to get that done before the end of my first term” (as though the resolution of the conflict is up to him). And in a meeting with Prime Minister Netanyahu on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly, Trump put the Israeli leader on the spot by stating, in reference to the two-state solution, that the move of the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem must be reciprocated by an Israeli concession to the Palestinians. Does anyone besides this watchman see the manipulations of a master negotiator here?
Another indication of Trump’s disingenuousness toward Israel is that he has been silent – not coming to Israel’s defense – as Russia has blamed Israel for the tragedy last week when one of its planes was shot down by Syrian missiles, killing all 15 crew members on board. Now, Russia has greatly strengthened Syria’s air defenses, with no objections from Trump, making it much more difficult for Israel to attack Iranian and terrorist movements inside Syria. This indirect indication of the possibility that America might withdraw its military support of Israel is, no doubt, another pressure tactic to get Netanyahu and Israel to capitulate to Trump's demands regarding the two-state solution.
The Bible states that those who form false alliances with Israel, divide Israel, and undermine Israel’s security (which the past several American presidents, including President Trump, have been doing) will, sooner or later, reap the consequences. Look out, America!
After over 30 hours of intense hearings, the Senate Judicial Committee was as divided and undecided about Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s qualifications to be a Supreme Court Justice and as to his innocence or guilt regarding the sexual assault charges brought against him as when the hearings began.
Why? Was it because the senators on the committee lacked the intelligence or the experience to arrive at the truth? No, these are all very intelligent, articulate individuals as experienced as anyone in the land in investigating and arriving at truthful conclusions about such matters. Was it because the evidence was inconclusive? No, the evidence was clear, both regarding Kavanaugh’s qualifications and his innocence regarding the sexual assault charges brought against him.
Then why the continued strident stand-off? This observer noticed a cloud of deception of the devil over the hearings making it impossible for the participants to arrive at the truth. And that deception has been the fundamental lie of Satan told to all humanity from the beginning: “You shall be as God . . .” (Genesis 3:5). And every participant in the hearings, including Judge Kavanaugh and his accuser, Dr. Ford, was deceived by that lie, assuming they were basically good (godly) people. That’s why no Republican committee member challenged Democratic Senator Booker when he repeatedly praised Dr. Ford for being a woman of great courage and integrity in bringing her “truth” to the hearing. They didn’t dare question her basic goodness. That’s why even President Trump described her testimony as “compelling” rather than suggesting that she might be lying or putting on a good act. And that’s why Judge Kavanaugh reacted angrily and defensively, protesting what an outstanding student, athlete, and friend to women he had been in his youth, rather than simply admitting, when he was questioned about drinking with his friends, that, like all young people, he had made some foolish mistakes, but had never done the thing of which he was being accused. His angry, self-righteous defensiveness, rather than admitting that, like every other human being, he is not basically good, did not help his case or help the committee arrive at the truth.
But that spirit of self-righteous pride – blind patriotism and a sense of “American exceptionalism” and “manifest destiny” rather than humble dependence on God – on which this nation was founded and has been sustained throughout its history makes it impossible to know the truth about ourselves and results in the terrible contention that divides our nation and in its soon-coming downfall.
Yahshua (“Jesus”) said, “No one is good but God” (Mark 10:18).
He also said, “A kingdom [or nation] divided against itself cannot stand” (Mark 3:24).
For Yahovah’s (“God’s”) solution for His people in America, please read Revelation 18:4.
Yahshua (“Jesus”) clearly foretold that America will soon be destroyed. He said, “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand” (Matthew 12:25)
How could America be more divided against itself than it is at the present time? And the animosity between the Conservative Right and the Liberal Left is rapidly increasing toward the point of explosive critical mass. Witness the wild, barely restrained hostility of the Left toward President Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court Brett Kavanaugh and their desperation to keep him from being confirmed. Witness the almost exponential increase in the number and magnitude of threats and accusations against the President and those who support him as the mid-term congressional elections draw near.
Something’s gotta give. The cultural explosion that will bring down this nation, as we have known it all our lives, has to occur – soon.
There are two very real possibilities: 1) Large-scale riots or an orchestrated revolution could break out against the President and his government, resulting in a declaration of a state of emergency and martial law, making Trump a virtual dictator, or 2) Trump could be removed from power by election, assassination, or impeachment, resulting in a takeover by the Leftist/ Socialist/Globalist/Islamist cabal. In either case, the constitutional freedoms Americans have enjoyed all our lives will be gone. According to Bible prophecy, the destruction of America is inevitable.
Don’t be a fool and think, as the vast majority of American Christian leaders and prophecy teachers claim, that America can be saved if her people will just repent and pray (2 Chronicles 7:14). America is NOT the new Israel. America is the new Babylon. And the Lord’s command to His people in modern Babylon the Great, just as it was to His people in ancient Babylon, is to “Come out of her, my people” (Jeremiah 51:45; Revelation 18:4). To Yahovah’s (“God’s) ancient people Israel, this was a physical command. To His present people, the followers of Yahshua the Messiah (“Jesus Christ”), this is a spiritual command. Our only escape from this sinking ship called America is to make sure we are in the lifeboat called Yahshua (which literally means “Yah saves”).
For insight into what is really happening in the U.S. government, view the linked video by a former CIA insider:
The Bible clearly prophesies that, at the “end of the age” (Matthew 24:3), there will be a great city-state/nation/empire that dominates the world politically, economically, and militarily called “Babylon the Great” (see especially Revelation 18). And current events during the presidency of Donald Trump are confirming the obvious fact that no nation other than the United States of America fits that description.
For example, the Trump administration’s economic sanctions against nations like Russia, Iran, China, North Korea, and Turkey are having devastating effects on the economies of those nations, while America’s economy continues to soar to heights that even the New York Times, which is consistently anti-Trump, has had to admit are “remarkable.”
But what does Bible prophecy tell us about the future of the current trend? It is temporary. America-Babylon will be totally taken over by the globalist/Islamist cabal (Jeremiah 51:1-4; 11-14, 27-28, and other Scriptures) from within and will be destroyed as a free, sovereign nation.
When will this occur? Well, this watchman is no prophet – he has no direct revelation from Heaven. But, he is an avid student of current events in the light of Bible prophecy, and it seems increasingly clear that as soon as Trump is out of power as President, things in the U.S. will quickly go to Hell, literally. There will be a tremendous backlash and the Liberal Left, the socialists, and the globalists, with their militant religious arm, the Muslims, will take over America, plunging this nation into depths of deprivation and terror never before seen on its soil.
What will be the Lord Yahovah’s (“God’s”) way of escape for His people in America when that occurs (He always has one)? It is found in Revelation 18:4 (not 2 Chronicles 7:14): “Come out of her [spiritually], my people, lest you partake of her sins and receive her plagues.” Our only escape will be spiritual, not physical. We need to make sure that we are in the lifeboat called Yahshua the Messiah (“Jesus Christ”), so that our souls are saved even if our bodies are not.
Hi Watchman Bob: Just wondering if you've read any of Ellis Skolfield's books concerning Islam during the latter days, he makes a good case for the Dome
President Trump, in acquiescing to Vladimir Putin, has continued to be outmaneuvered by the Russian president in undermining Israel's security. In his Helsinki summit with Putin this week, Trump, with the compliance of his lapdog Prime Minister Netanyahu of Israel, agreed to give Russia complete control over Southwestern Syria, where Syria borders Israel's Golan Heights, as long as Russia agreed to keep Hezbollah and the forces of Iran away from the border.
Well, in violation of previous agreements, Russia immediately allowed the Syrian forces of Bashar al Assad to take over Quneitra, very close to the border, and is allowing the forces of Hezbollah and Iran, disguised as Syrians, to also infiltrate that area.
The stage for Bible prophecy, which foretells that, at the end of the age, Syria, Iran, and other middle eastern nations will come against Israel in an all-out attack continues to be rapidly fulfilled (Ezekiel 38, Psalm 83, Isaiah 17, et. al).
Let us prepare for The End, before it is too late.
President Donald Trump sees himself as the great negotiator. But Vladimir Putin, President of Russia, a master chess player, is taking advantage of Trump’s eagerness to get Putin into a negotiating situation to overwhelm the humanitarian resources of Israel with hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees and to place Israel at much greater danger of attack from its enemies, the forces of Syria, Hezbollah, and Iran.
Simultaneous with Trump’s National Security Advisor John Bolton meeting with Putin to set up a Trump-Putin summit (which will be held in Helsinki on July 16), contrary to previous agreements, Russian-backed Syrian forces were brutally pounding with air raids cities housing rebel troops near the northeastern border of Israel, causing many thousands of residents to flee those cities toward the Israeli border, where Israel is attempting to provide them humanitarian aid.
But, as soon as those cities are taken over by Assad’s Syrian forces, not only will they be occupied by the forces of Hezbollah and Iran, but those anti-Israel forces will infiltrate the refugee camps set up by Israel, placing Israelis in that much greater jeopardy.
So, for the sake of massaging his huuuge ego in meeting with Vladimir Putin, Trump is ignoring the advances of the Russian-backed anti-Israel forces in Syria and is actually betraying Israel into the hands of its enemies. Putin has out-maneuvered Trump before they even meet in person for their highly-vaunted summit.
And Bible prophecy, which states that, at the end of the age, the nations of the world, particularly the nations gathering on Israel’s borders at the present time, will come against Israel (Psalm 83, Ezekiel 38, Zechariah 14), continues to be inexorably fulfilled while Trump allegedly negotiates mutually beneficial agreements or at least agreements that deter from further malevolent actions against Israel with those nations.
Jared Kushner is Donald Trump’s son-in-law. He is also Trump’s senior advisor and chief Middle East negotiator. Kushner also happens to be an orthodox Jew.
The first year of Tump’s presidency, Kushner was very quiet, seldom speaking in public or granting interviews. However, at the opening ceremony of the new U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem, Kushner took center stage, delivering the most comprehensive, policy-based speech of any speaker there and clearly revealing his true political and religious colors.
And this watchman was very disturbed by Kushner’s speech because it was all about peaceful political and religious co-existence – Israelis, Arabs, Westerners, Jews, Muslims, and Christians all living together in harmony.
Now, what is wrong with that scenario, Bible believers? If you don’t know, tremble with fear. You are being set up for the Big Lie, which will lead you right into the hands of the false Messiah (“Antichrist”) and the destruction of your soul.
Find out how you can recognize the true Messiah when He comes to establish His true kingdom of peace and harmony rather than being drawn by the incredible deception of the false messiah into his global government and religion. Your eternal destiny depends on it.
For Kuschner’s speech, see the linked video:
Do not be naïve. The reason Donald Trump’s America is involved in the Middle East is not just to broker peace although that is certainly, on the surface, a legitimate agenda. But it is also to foment war – specifically with Iran. Why? America’s continued dominance as the world’s economic superpower and indeed its very existence as a sovereign nation depend on it.
If the emerging industrial and economic giant China is allowed to develop its “Silk Road” of commerce with Russia, Europe, the Middle Eastern nations and the African nations, and the Chinese renmimbi (yuan) replaces the U.S. dollar as the currency of that commerce and perhaps the reserve currency of global commerce, the dollar will plummet in value, perhaps collapsing the U.S. economy.
And guess where the hub of Silk Road commerce – the location at which commerce with China will branch off to all points northwest, west and southwest - will be? Tehran, the capital of Iran. That’s why European business leaders are investing heavily in Iran and Russia and China are supporting Iran. Those nations among others would like nothing better than to undermine America's economy and shoot the U.S. out of the saddle as the world's leading economic power.
Yes, the leaders of Iran are hostile toward Israel and the U.S. and must be stopped in their unabated development of nuclear armaments. But Trump, the consummate business-minded president, who has surrounded himself in his administration with war hawks and business tycoons, understands that the continued economic dominance of America is also at stake, for whoever controls the government of Iran will also, to a large extent, control trade with China.
Ultimately, according to Bible prophecy (Jeremiah 51; Revelation 18), America will be destroyed as a sovereign nation by the New World Order/Islamic cabal. Ironically, Trump’s aggression toward Iran may very well precipitate the backlash that will result in the downfall of America.
Let us stay tuned to what’s happening and be prepared to trust totally in the Lord Yahuah (“God”) and the soon-coming Messiah Yahushua (“Christ Jesus”) for salvation from the soon-coming holocaust.
This watchman has been warning for years that the Bible prophesies that America will be destroyed, first from within by terrorists (Jeremiah 51), then, from without by "fire" (Revelation 17). Current events are rapidly setting the stage for the fulfillment of those prophecies.
A few weeks ago, I pointed out that Barack Obama and Donald Trump are just two sides of the same coin in moving America in that direction. Obama set the stage for the New World Order/Islamist takeover of America; Trump is moving America toward war with North Korea, Iran and possibly Russia and other nations that will sooner or later, probably sooner rather than later, cause a tremendous backlash from those nations and their allies that will result in the scenario for which Obama set the stage.
Trump is surrounding himself more and more with war hawks in his administration, the most recent being Mike Pompeo, Trump's nomination to be the new CIA Director, and John Bolton. Bolton, Trump's new National Security Advisor, has stated that America will invade Iran before the end of 2018. Iran is pledging an immediate response to any negative action of America toward that nation.
That's scary stuff . . . for those who are not at peace with their God. Let us make sure we are.
The Bible prophesies (Ezekiel 38) that in the last days a huge, overwhelming army will invade Israel, and the Lord Yahuah ("God") will intervene supernaturally to destroy those armies and save Israel.
The nations of the armies, led by a powerful leader--probably a spiritual being--named Gog, that will attack Israel, will come from modern-day Turkey, Iran, Libya and Sudan.
A couple of years ago, it did not seem likely that Sunni Muslim nations (Turkey, and North African nations) would unite with Iran, a Shiite Muslim nation, against a common enemy, because their worst enemies were one another.
But today, that is exactly what is happening. The major nations that will be involved in the Gog-Magog war against Israel, Turkey and Iran, backed by Russia, are indeed coming together against their common enemy Israel. The main thing that is stopping them from totally taking over that part of the Middle East--from Iran through Iraq and Syria to the Mediterranean and Turkey--is the presence of American forces and their support for the Kurdish fighters there. As soon as the American deterrent is removed (which, according to Bible prophecy, will happen soon), the Gog-Magog War and other catastophic, end-of-the-age events will occur.
Are you ready for The End?
On the surface, Donald Trump and Barack Obama represent two opposite extremes: Trump the nationalist, capitalist; Obama the globalist, socialist. But a closer, honest view of the two reveals opposite sides of the same coin. Both are paving the way for the anti-messiah (Antichrist).
What do Trump and Obama have in common that confirms that observation? They both are controlled by the spirit of arrogance, and they are both undermining Israel. Obama is subtle in his arrogance, but blatant in his hatred of Israel. Trump is the opposite: blatant in his arrogance, but subtle in undermining Israel. And they are both, in opposite ways, anti-messianic (anti-Christian).
Arrogance is the fundamental spirit of Lucifer/Satan (Isaiah 14:12-13). The destruction of Israel has always been his goal (Revelation 12). It is no secret that Obama is a Muslim sympathizer - hates Christians and Jews. And Trump is a phony Christian (pride and covetousness are spirits of Satan, not the Messiah) who has put his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, an orthodox Jew, in charge of negotiating the Israel-Palestine peace deal which will divide Israel and leave the nation virtually indefensible.
Some rabbis believe that the “prince who is coming” (the false messiah) (Daniel 9:26-27) will be a Jew who will sign a peace treaty with Israel, but then break it and seek to destroy Israel. Kushner is not the ultimate anti-messiah, but, in the anti-messiah spirit, is setting the stage for the destruction of Israel. Interestingly, the address of Kushner’s corporate headquarters is 666 Fifth Avenue, New York City (America-Babylon’s “great city” – cf. Revelation 18:16). And the plans are to replace the building at that address with a $12 billion towering skyscraper pointing toward the heavens, reminding us of what the original type of the anti-messiah, Nimrod, attempted to do before his empire was destroyed (Genesis 10:8-10; 11:4-9). Could Kushner’s tower be an omen of what will happen to America?
If you are a true Bible believer, this is a warning: Do not get involved in politics – taking sides (cf. 2 Timothy 2:4). Both paths lead to Hell. We are aliens in this world - just passing through. Let us keep our minds on the true Messiah. Following Him is our only hope of making it through the soon-coming holocaust into the Messianic kingdom and eternal life.
For more on Kushner as a type of the anti-messiah, preparing the way for the ultimate “beast” of Revelation, view the linked video.
The Revelation is probably the most controversial, misunderstood book of the Bible. That’s because its author, Yahuah, the one, true, most high God, wants us to understand the times in which we are living, what is soon coming, and what to do about it (cf. Revelation 1:3; 22:6-7). And Satan/the devil does not want us to understand what’s happening, because he wants to destroy our souls and steal eternal life from us. And the main way that he is doing that in these last days is not by persecution, violence and the threat of killing us, but by deception (cf. Daniel 11:23; Revelation 12:9). And much of that deception is coming through false prophets, teachers and messiahs who misinterpret and distort the prophetic Scriptures, especially the Revelation (cf. Matthew 24:24). The Word warns us over and over not to be deceived (e.g., 1 John 4:1).
But our gracious God has promised that when the spirit of deception comes in like a flood (which is happening at the present time), He will give true believers His Spirit, who will guide us into the Truth (John 16:13). And that is exactly what is happening. His prophetic Word, especially the Revelation, is our only defense against the deception that is rapidly descending on our minds and souls and against the soon-coming holocaust. And our gracious Heavenly Father is making its meaning clear to His children who are sincerely and diligently seeking His Truth (cf. Matthew 7:7-8).
This watchman has been studying current events in the light of Bible prophecy diligently for the past 20 years. And he, like most students and teachers of end-times prophecy, has been puzzled about the meanings of many of the characters, places and events of the Revelation for much of that time. For example, when he first published his commentary on the book in 2010, although he thought he understood the identity and destiny of Babylon the Great (Revelation 17 and 18), current events did not seem to confirm that interpretation. But, at the present time, it is being confirmed with astonishing clarity.
So, if you really want to understand the Revelation, including its sequence of end-times events (its timeline), like you probably never have before, you are urged to read the 2018 update of the commentary, which is published in its entirety on this website, prayerfully, with an open mind, asking the Lord to reveal to you, personally, by His Spirit, the Truth. The 2018 update of the book on which the website is based, The Revelation of Yahushua the Messiah, is also available through the site as a FREE pdf download, a Kindle e-book and a book distributed through Amazon.
A diabolical concept that is rapidly gaining popularity is the “sovereign individual” – a term coined in 1997 by William Rees-Mogg and James Dale Davidson in their book The Sovereign Individual. In the recent World Mobile Conference dedicated to the globalist agenda of connecting every person in the world to the “Global Brain” (the 5G network), “sovereign independence” was the concept that was pushed as the rationale behind and the goal for building the network.
Do not be deceived, this idea of individual sovereignty has been the basic lie of Satan from the beginning, when he told Eve, “You shall be as gods” (Genesis 3:5). The truth is that no person on Earth is or ever will be independent and self-sufficient. Every one of us is controlled by unseen spiritual forces – ultimately by either the spirit of the devil (Satan) or the Spirit of Yahuah (“God”). We are controlled either by sin or by righteousness (cf. Romans 6:15-23). There is no such thing as human goodness and self-sufficiency apart from our Creator and Messiah (cf. John 15:5; Mark 10:18).
Again, do not be deceived, the Global Brain and every person connected to it will ultimately be controlled by the coming world ruler, the “beast” (“Antichrist”) (Revelation 13:7). Those who think they are “sovereign individuals” will not control the Brain to their own benefit, it will be used by the beast to control them. Only those who totally submit themselves to the control of their Creator and Savior will be protected.
So, if you agree with the William Ernest Henley poem that proudly asserts, “I am the master of my fate, the captain of my soul,” you are in critical condition – you have believed the “powerful delusion” (2 Thessalonians 2:11) and, ironically, are headed for the total destruction of your soul.
Repent of your proud, rebellious, independent spirit, and trust in the Lord Yahushua (“Jesus”) to save you from the soon-coming holocaust before it is too late. He is our only hope.
Yours in His amazing grace and love,
Yahushua ("Jesus") told His disciples that the last sign before "the end of the age" (the end of the world as we know it) will be the preaching of the Gospel to the whole world (Matthew 24:3, 14).
Many have speculated as to how and when the Gospel (the "good news" of the Messiah's return) will be preached to the whole world. The answer is now clear.
A few days ago, I shared a report from TruNews about how the globalists are rapidly moving to connect every person on Earth to the "Global Brain" (the 5G network). Their goal is 2030, but they are moving faster than that, and much faster in the U.S.A. After every person on Earth is connected, then any entity that is equipped to broadcast through 5G, can get a message to literally every person on the planet.
Ironically, Rick Wiles and the TruNews team are very excited about being on the cutting edge of this technological revolution and the prospect of getting the Gospel to every person on Earth.
If you haven't already, you are urged to view the linked video - a TruNews report from the 2018 World Mobile Conference.
Are you ready for The End?
Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), Artificial Intelligence (AI), Blockchain, the Global Brain (5G) – as far out and fantasy-like as it seems, are being built and implemented NOW! What was the science fiction future is here NOW, folks.
Believe it or not, the plan of the technological globalists is to have every person on Planet Earth connected to and every aspect of our lives monitored by the Global Brain by 2030. And, it’s not just a plan – the system is being built and implemented NOW – at a rate faster than planned!
You are urged to watch the linked video – a report from the World Mobile 2018 Conference by Rick Wiles of TruNews and his team – for proof of what’s happening.
Again, it’s mind-blowing, chilling, creepy and surreal . . . but True.
Of course, as a watchman for the followers of the soon-coming Messiah Yahushua (the “Church”), my first question is, “Who is going to control the Global Brain?” And the Bible is clear. It states that Satan, the devil, is the present god of this world and he has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe the truth (2 Corinthians 2:4), which is all but very, very few (Matthew 7:14).
Yes, it’s all about mind control, friends. And that throws a whole new light on many Bible prophecies. The Bible states that the main way the anti-messiah (“Antichrist”) will conquer the world will be through deception (not force) (Daniel 11:23; 2 Thessalonians 2:9-11). And that deception will be so incredible that the “whole world,” except those specially protected by the Lord Yahuah (“God”), will follow and worship the false messiah (Matthew 24:22-24; Mark 13:20-22; Revelation 13:8).
Yes, the deception will be so incredible that unless we are truly saved and our minds have been renewed by the Holy Spirit (Romans 12:2) so that we are protected against the mind control of the false messiah – all the way to The End (Matthew 24:13) – our bodies and souls will be destroyed (Matthew 10:28).
The hour is late. Spiritual darkness is enveloping the world. Let us make sure that we are in the Light (John 8:12) that cannot be extinguished, before it is too late.
Do you have the courage, humility and honesty to face up to reality - the plain truth about what is happening in the world, especially America, in the light of Bible prophecy - and to know exactly what the Lord Yahuah ("God") tells His people to do about it?
This watchman has not heard or read a single prophecy teacher who gets the whole truth about the identity and destiny of America in Bible prophecy, American "Christianity," and what Yahuah tells his people to do about what's happening completely right. They are all, to one extent or another, sticking their heads in the sand and ignoring reality. That's because if they told the whole truth, most wouldn't listen to them or support them. They would be persecuted. That's the voice of experience.
However, the Truth is crystal clear to those whose hearts and minds are open to it. And this watchman does not care about the consequences of proclaiming that Truth. He has already lost his 30-year career and virtually all of his "friends" and family members because of his convictions. He just wants to get the Truth out to as many precious souls who will face up to it as he can, while they can still be saved from the soon-coming holocaust (which, actually, has already started).
Updates of the RevelationUnderstoodCommentary.com website, the Revelation of Yahushua the Messiah commentary on the book of Revelation, and The Tenth Harbinger (about America) according to current, 2018 events in the light of Bible prophecy have just been completed.
You are urged to visit the website where you can read all about it and download the two books for FREE.
Our objective is not to make money off this ministry but simply to get the Truth out to as many precious souls as will face up to it, before it is too late.
In His amazing mercy, grace and love,
The hour is late. The time has come to stop mincing words. America is incipient Babylon the Great of Revelation 17 and 18, and is on the brink of destruction, just as ancient Babylon was destroyed.
The Bible prophesies that Middle Eastern terrorists (actually a New World Order/Islamic cabal) will destroy modern Babylon from within (cf. Jeremiah 1-4, 11, 14, 26-27). Ararat, Minni, Ashchenaz, and the Medes in those verses refer to the areas occupied by present-day Turkey and Iran. They also refer to the area occupied by ancient Medo-Persia, which destroyed ancient Babylon from within.
Jonathan Cahn’s blockbuster book The Harbinger posited the possibility that America will be destroyed by terrorists from that part of the world. But many passages of Scripture that Cahn failed to take into account confirm the certainty that will happen.
If you haven’t already, open your eyes to what is happening today with America’s government! A coup d'é·tat to overthrow the Trump presidency is happening now – right in front of our faces. And, sooner or later, perhaps a lot sooner than we want to think, it will succeed!
And who set it all up? Barack Obama, who is still working behind the scenes to get this nation back into the clutches of the leftists, liberals, socialists, globalists and Islamists. To read how Obama set the stage for the United States of America to be taken over by the New World Order/Islamist cabal, read the linked commentary.
Through the Trump presidency, the Lord has given Bible believers in America a temporary reprieve from the destroy-America agenda of Barack Obama and the Deep State he represents. But that reprieve will end soon, and, when it does, what religious freedom we presently enjoy in this nation will evaporate fast. It is written! So, if you are living in the fantasy that your religious freedom is going to continue under Trump, snap out of it, and get your heart and life right with the Lord Yahuah (“God”), before it is too late!
Meanwhile, here is a recent video that may help open your eyes to reality: Deep State Secret Society Coup Against President Trump.
If you are confused about the sequence of end-times events according to Bible prophecy (the rise of the anti-messiah ["Antichrist"], the Great Tribulation, the identity and destiny of Babylon the Great, the destiny of the Jews, the rapture of the "Church," the Day and the Wrath of the Lord, and so forth), you are not alone. The vast majority of Bible students, including Bible prophecy teachers and scholars are also confused about the sequence and timing of those events.
However, this student of Bible prophecy will testify, from his own experience, that our Heavenly Father does want to make the sequence of events of the book of Revelation crystal clear to those who diligently, without preconceived notions, are studying the Revelation in these Last Days.
If you sincerely want to understand the times in which we live and to know what your Heavenly Father wants you to do about it, before it's too late, you are urged to read the linked essay: "Be Saved from the Wrath of Yahuah ('God')!"
There is much confusion and disagreement among Bible prophecy scholars and teachers as to the meaning and application to our lives of end-times prophecy - particularly the book of Revelation.
However, the Lord Yahuah ("God") is not the author of confusion, is He? (1 Corinthians 14:33) And He does not give us prophecies just as debatable, allegorical stories or moral teachings. He gives them to us so that we can know what He is going to do, and what He wants His people to do with the understanding of what is coming. (Amos 3:7; Revelation 1:1-3)
And I have no doubt that, as we get closer to The End of this world as we have known it all our lives (Matthew 24:3), our Heavenly Father is making the meaning of end-times prophecy more and more clear to His children. That has certainly been my experience. I have been studying current events in the light of Bible prophecy, particularly the book of Revelation, diligently for 20 years. And the Lord has brought its meaning, the timing and sequence of soon-coming events, and its implications for how I need to be living my life while my Father in Heaven has given me time, clearly into focus just during the past few years.
I have published an essay about how you can share in that enlightening experience with me. Please click on the link below and read it, before it is too late for you to "understand the times and know what to do" (1 Chronicles 12:32).
In His wonderful love and concern for our souls,
Last night, President Donald Trump gave a powerful, seemingly compassionate, persuasive State of the Union speech (his first), in which he passionately touted his “make America great again” and “America first” mantras. No doubt, virtually all American conservatives, including “Christians,” were enthralled by the speech.
However, this watchman prays that those who know their prophetic Scriptures were enabled by the Holy Spirit to see through Trump’s diabolically deceitful presentation.
Four times, He mentioned “god,” but it was not the God of the Bible, because his speech was based on the doctrines of American Exceptionalism and Manifest Destiny on which this nation was founded. Those doctrines state that the U.S.A. was founded by people who, in their own goodness and self-sufficiency (rather than total dependence on Yahuah—the God of Israel and the true Christians) will build the greatest, most righteous nation on Earth. The giveaway was Trump’s constant assertion that, working together (with no reference to “God”) Americans can accomplish “anything . . . absolutely anything.”
Trump ended his speech with, “God bless America,” but, by that time, it was almost an afterthought, as though he was repeating the old, spiritually vacuous, non-scriptural, even heretical epithet, “God helps those who help themselves.”
The Great American Divide was no more apparent than in the audience at the SOTU address. Half of the attendees were wildly enthusiastic, applauding, standing and cheering after almost every remark of the President. The other half sat unresponsive, with dour expressions on their faces throughout most of the speech. Our Lord stated clearly that a "kingdom" (or nation) divided against itself will be destroyed (Matthew 12:25).
And the Bible prophesies that, at the end of the age (Matthew 24:3), there will be a great, world dominating nation that it calls “Babylon the Great” that will be destroyed, first, by a globalist/Middle Eastern terrorist cabal striking from within the nation, then, by fire from Heaven, just as Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed. Is that not exactly the scenario that we see being set up in the U.S.A. at the present time? Ironically, Trump's proposed amnesty agenda - allowing three times more illegal immigrants to stay in America than the Obama administration allowed - plays right into the hands of that scenario.
For thorough documentation of the coming holocaust to America/Babylon according to history, current events, and Scripture, you are urged to read the newly updated (2018) The Tenth Harbinger (click on the link below). And, if you are a true believer in the soon-coming Messiah Yahushua (“Christ Jesus”), you are urged to learn what “Come out of her, my people, lest you partake of her sins and receive of her plagues” (Revelation 18:4) means, before it is too late.
Those who support Israel are raving enthusiastically about Vice President Mike Pence's speech at the Knesset on 1/22, during his trip to Israel. Pence received standing ovation after standing ovation as he spoke of recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital and moving the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
However, those who are familiar with the teachings of Scripture and Bible prophecy (which, as a devout Christian, Pence should be) should recognize the deceit - even treachery - in Pence's remarks. In addition to recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital and promising the move of the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, with equal fervor, he pushed for a two-state solution between Israel and the Palestinians and asserted that those who espouse the three faiths practiced by the descendants of Abraham - Judaism, Islam, and Christianity - should and will live together in peace.
Scripture prophesies exactly the opposite - that the descendants of Ishmael will never live in harmony with the descendants of Isaac (or, even, with one another) (Genesis 16:12). And, in the end, ALL nations (including the U.S.A. if it still exists) will come against Jerusalem and Israel (Zechariah 12:3).
It is easy to see how this might happen if, at some point in time, Israel rejects the two-state "solution" or some other "solution" the world's nations attempt to impose on her.
"In the end, they will say, 'peace, peace,' when there is no peace." (Jeremiah 6:14)
View and listen to Pence's speech in the linked video, and notice the deceitful capitulation to the enemies of Israel.
The Bible prophesies (Revelation 17 and 18) that, at the "end of the age" (Matthew 24:3), the most powerful city-state/nation/empire in history, modern Babylon the Great, will dominate the other nations of the world - until it is destroyed - first, by Middle Eastern terrorists (probably acting as the militant proxies of the New World Order), then, by fire from the sky, just as Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed.
When I first published The Tenth Harbinger, which is based on the conviction that the United States of America is incipient Babylon the Great, in 2013, it did not seem, on the surface, that America was headed that direction. The administration of President Barack Obama, with its destroy-America agenda, was weakening the U.S.A. in every way - morally, economically, politically, and militarily - attempting to socialize and globalize the nation.
But then, something amazing and almost totally unexpected happened: Donald Trump, with his "make America greater than ever" and "America first" pledges, was elected President. And, after just one year in office, Trump, against all odds and fierce opposition from the Left, the globalists, the Islamists, the mainstream media - practically the whole world - has made astonishing, unprecedented progress toward fulfilling his pledges. Indeed, it seems that America is back on track toward becoming Babylon the Great.
But beware. According to Bible prophecy, the new American resurgence is temporary. Then, holocaust will come to this nation.
For all the details about why, how and when this will happen, with thorough Scriptural support, and what the Lord Yahuah ("God") wants His people in America to do about it, you are urged to read the 2018 update of The Tenth Harbinger, which I just completed, available as a FREE pdf download when you click on the link below.
"And when these things [the end of the age events] begin to happen, look up, and lift up your head; for your redemption draws near" (Luke 21:28).
The Bible clearly prophesies that the most powerful city-state/nation/empire in history, modern “Babylon the Great,” will first be taken over by Middle Eastern terrorists, then be totally annihilated by “fire” three and one-half years before the “end of the world” (Jeremiah 51:1-4, 8, 24-29; Revelation 17:16-17; 18:2, 8, 18, 19; Matthew 24:3).
During just the first year of his presidency, Donald Trump, against fierce opposition, has taken two, giant, historical steps toward drawing America and the world into the fulfillment of those prophecies.
True to Trump’s campaign pledge, the stock market is at an all-time high and the economy is on the verge of booming. Also, he is moving quickly to restore America’s military to its pre-Obama status as the world’s dominant fighting force. Third, he is forming unprecedented economic, political and military alliances from the Middle East to Asia like no other previous president. In other words, against all odds and rabid opposition, and true to his pledge to make America “greater than ever,” Trump is rapidly moving the U.S.A. toward becoming the politically, economically and militarily dominant nation in the world.
Trump’s second step toward the fulfillment of end-times prophecy has been his astonishing, historic recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. That bold stand will facilitate America’s rise to dominance in the short term, for Yahuah (“God”) blesses those who bless Israel (Genesis 12:3; 27:29). But, in the long term, it will lead to galvanizing the globalists and the Islamists against both Israel and the U.S.A., and will lead to the destruction of America as a sovereign nation.
So, if we are true believers in the coming Messiah Yahushua (“Christ Jesus”), let us not get complacent in the Trump reprieve from persecution from the Left, the globalists and the Islamists. It is temporary. Let us be obedient to the Lord’s command to “Come out of her [spiritually], my people” (Revelation 18:4), before it is too late.

We live in treacherous times. The U.S.A. is divided against itself and each side is more and more determined to destroy the other.
There is increasingly an outcry of the Trump-led Conservative Right against the corruption of the Obama and Clinton-controlled Liberal Left. And riots, violence and even murder are being fomented by the Left against the Right. The vitriolic rhetoric on both sides is being amped up.
Nationwide overthrow-Trump demonstrations are planned by ANTIFA (the militant sycophants of the globalists and the Liberal Left) today, November 4. And Second Amendment right-to-bear-arms rallies at state capitals are planned for tomorrow. Some are speculating that the ANTIFA demonstrations, if violent and destructive, will result in martial law being declared by the Trump administration.
And so it goes in America, spiraling downward into chaos, anarchy, violence and, ultimately (perhaps soon), a totalitarian state.
The Messiah Yahushua (“Christ Jesus”) spoke of trying times like these coming at the “end of the age” (read Matthew 24), so true believers in Him should not be surprised. We should also be careful not to adopt either a survivalist or a militant mentality. As our Lord stated, His kingdom (and ours) is not this world nor should we fight to establish it here (John 18:36). Our total focus should be on preparing ourselves and as many others as possible for the wonderful World to Come, rather than on living our “best life now” or even on saving our lives on this wretched, rapidly deteriorating globe of corruption and death.
For more on the futility of the escapist pre-trib rapture fantasy, the suicidal survivalist mentality and the dominionist apostasy, please open the free PDF file of The Tenth Harbinger linked below and read Chapter 9 beginning on page 125.
Meanwhile, fellow believers, let’s keep looking up, for our Redemption is drawing very near (Luke 21:28).
The vast majority of “Christians,” especially American “Christians,” do not worship the one, true God Yahuah (YHWH in Hebrew), although they think they do. They worship a god who caters to their fleshly, worldly lusts and to their pride, and who will ultimately let them down – all the way to Hell – faith in whom has been passed down from generation to generation.
Some of the earliest settlers of America, for example, the Puritan Separatists who came over on the Mayflower to flee religious persecution in England, were true believers in Yahuah. But the majority were not – they were adventurers, farmers, hired hands and others who were looking for a better life in the New World. Only a little over one-third of the “Pilgrims” on the Mayflower were Puritans. The rest were called “strangers” (non-believers) by the Puritans. The earliest settlers of the colonies composed rudimentary constitutions, like the Mayflower Compact, that gave lip service to “God” and to “Christianity,” but were hardly true Biblical documents. The Mayflower Compact, for example, was basically a pledge of allegiance to King James.
Then, about 160 years later, the thinking and religious faith of virtually all the Founding Fathers who framed the U.S. Constitution, with few exceptions (e.g., John Jay), were corrupted by the humanistic Age of Enlightenment. They worshipped a deistic god who they reasoned had left his highest creation, human beings, in charge of running the world, except for occasionally being a “help to those who help themselves” (a totally un-biblical concept).
In other words, rather than being totally devoted to and dependent on the Lord Yahuah, the Founding Fathers, the vast majority of the leaders of the U.S.A. for the past 240 years and the vast majority of so-called “Christians” in America, in the name of “God” (interesting, isn’t it, that they haven’t known His name although it appears 6,828 times in the Hebrew “Old Testament”?), actually, like the present President of the U.S., worship Self.
If you are one of those, repent and “come out of her [spiritually] . . . lest you partake of her sins and receive of her plagues” (Revelation 18:4), before it is too late. Apparently, with all the unprecedented natural disasters and social turmoil destroying America at the present time, Yahuah’s judgment on this land has begun.
For more on the true religious roots of the United States of America, please view the three-part series of videos beginning with the linked “The Hidden Truth About America – Part 1.”
“Wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and many enter that way. But narrow is the gate and the way that leads to life, and few find that way.” Yahushua (“Jesus”) – Matthew 7:13-14
The Highway to Hell is a wide, divided, two-lane, one-way road. The Way to Heaven is a narrow path down the middle. The left lane of the Highway to Hell is filled with narcissistic Obamaites who, in their lawless anarchy, are unwitting followers of Satan, the present god of this world (2 Corinthians 4:4). The right lane is filled with prideful, hypocritical, pseudo-Christians and political conservatives who, in the worship of Self and attempting to build their kingdom on Earth, are joining Donald Trump in paving the way for Satan’s incarnation – the false messiah (“Antichrist”).
How may a true believer in the Messiah Yahushua (“Christ Jesus”) find and stay on that narrow path to eternal life? Let us allow the words of one, true God Yahuah and His incarnation, Yahushua, tell us:
“Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny himself and take up his cross [an instrument of death to Self] daily and follow me.” Yahushua – Luke 9:23
“Seek first the kingdom of God [Yahuah] and His righteousness, and He will take care of everything else.” Yahushua – Matthew 6:33 paraphrased
“Whoever loves the world and the things of this world – the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life – does not have the love of the Father [Yahuah] in him. And the world and its lusts are passing away: but he that does the will of God [Yahuah] lives forever.” Yahushua – 1 John 2:15-17 paraphrased
“No one serving as a soldier [in the Lord Yahuah’s army] gets entangled in civilian affairs [including politics].” The apostle Paul – 2 Timothy 2:4
“Come [spiritually] out of her [Babylon the Great], my people, lest you take part in her sins, lest you share in her plagues.” Yahuah – Revelation 18:4
Note: I prefer to use the Hebrew names of the Father and the Son because “God” and “Lord” do not specify which god or lord and the vast majority of those who call themselves “Christians,” especially American “Christians,” in their self-righteousness and worldliness, do not have a clue as to what the self-sacrificial life in the true Messiah Yahushua is all about.
As I pray has been clearly explained in previous blogs, Donald Trump is not filled with the Spirit of the one, true God Yahuah, which is the spirit of unselfish love, conciliation and peace. Exactly as the Liberal Left does him, Trump self-righteously blasts his opponents with name-calling, ridicule and vulgarities, exacerbating the divisiveness in America rather than diffusing it.
In fact, the spirit of pride, on which the worship of Self is based, is the basic, diabolical spirit of Satan. The desire to be like Yahuah (the Most High God) is the spirit that got Lucifer, the “king of Babylon,” kicked out of Heaven and ultimately brought down to Hell (Isaiah 14:4, 12-15). It was that same prideful spirit that got Adam and Eve kicked out of Eden (Genesis 3:15), doomed to a life of suffering and, ultimately, to a miserable death. It was the spirit in which Nimrod built his empire and the spirit in which his subjects attempted to assert their deity by building a tower to Heaven (Genesis 10:8-11; 11:4). It is the spirit that controls modern, prophesied Babylon the Great (Revelation 18:7). Pride is also the spirit of the false (anti-) messiah who will come in his own name, proclaiming himself to be “God” (John 5:43; 2 Thessalonians 2:4). And pride – the worship of Self – will get anyone who does not repent of it a hot reservation in the Lake of Fire (Proverbs 16:18; Revelation 20:15). Finally, it is the spirit that will continue to divide America until this nation is destroyed.
Are you still operating under the delusion that the United States of America is a (true) Christian nation? Are you still taking sides in the intensified cultural and political war that is tearing this nation apart? To side with Donald Trump in his exaltation of Self and his quest for worldly power and material gain for himself and his supporters and followers is to join him in paving the way for the false messiah. To side with Barack Obama and the Liberal Left is to side with the devil himself in his destruction of morality and individual responsibility to the Creator and to one another.
I didn't get to it today, but please read tomorrow's sixth and last blog on this subject, which will explain what Yahuah's Word clearly states genuine believers in the soon-coming true Messiah Yahushua ("Christ Jesus") must do to victoriously prevail in the current treacherous spiritual milieu in which we find ourselves and to escape the coming holocaust.
In the last three blogs, I have attempted to make it clear that President Donald Trump is urging the nations to unite under the world’s most popular “God” – Self. Self is the god Trump worships. Trump is known for his huuge ego. His presidential campaign and his present appeal to his supporters, and, indeed, to the whole world are based on the worship of Self. He is a master at complimenting people and telling them how great and good they are. Yet, he is never heard giving the credit for his or anyone’s accomplishments to the Lord Yahushua (“Jesus”), the true Messiah, who said, “Apart from me, you can do NOTHING” (John 15:5).
So, we are in quite a Catch-22 situation in America, aren’t we? Those who support Barack Obama and the Liberal Left advocate abdicating all personal, moral responsibilities and religious faith for the “common good,” which is hyper-socialism. Those who support Donald Trump and the Conservative Right advocate the opposite extreme – taking prideful responsibility to look out first for Self, our families and our country, which is hyper-democracy. (Both socialism and democracy are perverted in the service of Self when our ultimate total dependence on the one, true God Yahuah is minimized.)
So, the Great American Divide widens – exacerbated by the increasing conflict between the Obama-led Liberal Left and the Trump-led Conservative Right. But, Yahushua (“Jesus”) said, “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation” (Matthew 12:25). Therefore, according to prophetic Scripture, America will soon be destroyed (download from the linked site and read - for free - Appendix 1 of The Tenth Harbinger).
In tomorrow’s blog, I will share how the Lord Yahuah tells His people in the U.S.A. to avoid following the false messiah and escape the soon-coming holocaust.
It is clear that President Donald Trump is attempting to lead the world to unite under a “God” who is not the Most High God, the God of true Israel (cf. Romans 9:6) – Yahuah – the God of the followers of the true Messiah Yahushua (“Christ Jesus”). But, there are thousands of false “gods” worshipped in the world. Which “God” is Trump urging the nations to follow?
That question is really very simple to answer. There are ultimately only two spiritual beings controlling this world – Satan (Hebrew: satan), the devil (Greek: diabolos), and Yahuah (Hebrew: YHWH) (interesting, isn’t it, that very few Christians know the name of their God, which has been replaced by “God” or the “Lord” 6,826 times in most English-language translations of the Hebrew Scriptures (the “Old Testament”). All other “gods,” like Allah, are evil spirit beings (demons) who are subservient to Satan (cf. Leviticus 17:7 and Deuteronomy 32:16-17).
And Donald Trump, probably unwittingly, worships and exhorts his fans here in America and the nations of the world to unite under the most subtle, idolatrous manifestation of the spirit of Satan – Self (pride) – of which, with his huuge ego, he is the leading exponent in the U.S.A. Yes, that is correct . . . the Bible has nothing positive to say about pride. In fact, pride – the elevation of Self – is directly opposed to faith in and dependence on the one, true God Yahuah, and it is an abomination to Him (Proverbs 16:5).
In tomorrow’s blog, how the worship of Self is paving the way for the False Messiah (“Antichrist”) will be explained.
Meanwhile, you are urged to read the section on pride in the linked essay on True Christianity.
Under which “God” is President Donald Trump exhorting the nations of the world to unite to fight terror, despotism and globalism? Is it Yahuah the God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob (Israel) and the “Christians” – the followers of Yahushua (“Jesus”)? No, it is not, which is clear from Trump’s own statements and behavior.
Trump purports to be a Christian – specifically a Presbyterian. But is he a true Christian? He never even claimed to be a Christian until he ran for President. Then, he refused to admit that he had repented of his sins – the first step in becoming a Christian. He has a “huuge” ego – the exact opposite of the true Christian spirit (cf. Matthew 5:3, 5). His appeal to the masses is telling them how great and good they are – the exact opposite of what Yahushua (“Jesus”) tells us (cf. Mark 10:18). His highest values are material wealth and worldly success – the exact opposite of the values of the Kingdom of Yahuah (“God”) (cf. 1 Timothy 6:9). Trump espouses Norman Vincent Peale’s heretical and treacherous “power of positive thinking” pseudo-Christian philosophy – the exact opposite of total dependence on and faith in Yahuah (“God”) (cf. Proverbs 3:5; 14:12). And he embraces all who claim to be Christians – no matter how heretical and cultic their beliefs and practices – exactly what Yahushua (“Jesus”) warned against (cf. Matthew 7:13-23).
Tomorrow’s blog will identify, based on Scripture, exactly which “God” Trump worships and urges the whole world to honor and follow.
This is the first of a series of blogs concerning the Great Deception that is preparing the world to follow the soon-to-be-revealed false messiah (“Antichrist”) to the destruction of their souls and to Hell. If you are a believer, especially an American believer, in the soon-coming true Messiah, whether you are a Jew or a believer in Yahushua (“Jesus”), you are urged to diligently read, think about and pray about these blogs. Your eternal destiny may be at stake.
In both his speech in Saudi Arabia to the leaders of the Arab nations and his speech to the United Nations General Assembly, Donald Trump urged the nations of the world to unite under “God” in the wars on terror, despotism and globalism. Now, that seems like quite a naïve or presumptuous thing to do, does it not? After all, do the Christians (which Trump claims to be), the Muslims, the Jews, and all the other religions, anti-religions and non-religions, including atheism and Satanism, in the world worship the same “God”? Apparently, Donald Trump seems to think so. Either that, or he is arrogantly attempting to impose faith in his “God” on the rest of the world. In my opinion, Trump is doing both, albeit unwittingly: he believes that most of the world worships the same “God” and he is urging the nations of the world to unite under that “God” to solve the problems of the world.
In tomorrow’s blog, I will prove from Scripture and Donald Trump’s own words and behavior which “God” he is urging the world to follow.
Raptured like in the days of Noah. Those folks got visitors and I was just thinking how the whole world today is looking for someone to come from heaven
Most of the nations of the world hate America. They see the U.S.A. as a corrupt, self-indulgent, decadent bully of a nation whose huge, multi-national corporations rape other nations, especially the third world nations, of their natural and human resources. They continue to submit (through gritted teeth) to America’s dominance only because their economies would collapse if America is destroyed and the U.S.A. still has, by far, the most powerful military in the world. Other nations go to the other extreme by embracing all kinds of ideologies and practices, including radical Islam and anti-Semitism, but there is truth in their assessment of America.
So, President Trump’s speech to the United Nations this week was everything but uniting as he bluntly hammered home his America-first agenda and attacked, either directly or indirectly, practically every other form of government and ideology represented in the auditorium, naively and hypocritically insisting that all the other UN nations follow America’s example as an independent, democratic nation under "God" heroically fighting despotism and terrorism in the world.
And Donald Trump’s America-first speech, which has alienated and infuriated almost all the other nations of the world, is a strong catalyst that will precipitate America’s destruction. It is interesting that the Bible’s book of Revelation states that, before modern Babylon the Great is annihilated, the rulers of all the other “kingdoms” of the world will hate her (Revelation 17:16).
So, if you are an American Bible believer, the Lord Yahuah’s command to you is not to go along with the Trump Deception that America is going to be “great again” and Americans are going to be fine, but to “Come out of her [spiritually], my people, lest you partake of her iniquities and her plagues” (Revelation 18:4), before it is too late.
For irrefutable proof that the United States of America is modern, prophesied Babylon the Great, please read the linked essay “Who is Modern Babylon.”
Scripture states that Yahuah's ("God's") judgment of the world will begin with the "household of God" (1 Peter 4:17).
Some think that the August 21 solar eclipse that darkened a swath across only America (no other nation), Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Irma and other disasters striking or about to strike this nation indicate that The Lord Yahuah's judgment of America-Babylon has begun.
The U.S.A. is the world's only nation that claims to be a Christian nation. Ironically, Hurricane Harvey struck the Corpus Christi ("Body of Christ") area first.
In a few days, quite a confluence of events of global and prophetic significance will occur: the Biblical Feast of Trumpets which is a rehearsal of, among other things, the return of the Messiah to gather His people and judge the world; the United Nations General Assembly in New York City; and, for the first time in history, stellar constellations will line up in perfect fulfillment of end-times Bible prophecy (Revelation chapter 12).
If you are a Bible believer, you might want to get your spiritual house in order. The End, especially of America, may be very near.

Hurricane Judgment on America
The only way Americans can prove THESE wrong is to live an example lifestyle opposite whatever might have made many people to believe she's the new Babylon.
When Yahushua's (Jesus') disciples asked Him, "What will be the sign of your return and of the end of the world," He told them that, among other signs, there will be an accelerating increase of natural disasters (Matthew 24:7). That is exactly what is happening (see the linked video for details).
Some attempt to negate the increase by asserting that these events occur in cycles. Others insist they occur randomly throughout history. Others even foolishly claim that things are getting better and humans will eventually "save the planet." None of these views concur with reality.
The Biblical view of natural and human history affirms that deleterious events do occur in cycles ("There is nothing new under the sun"), but those events accelerate in number and magnitude, spiraling downward to The End of this present world. And that is exactly what is confirmed by science (the law of entropy) and statistics.
The only part of our lives that can improve in this ever-increasing darkness is our spiritual relationship with our Lord and God Yahuah. Let us make sure our hearts are right with Him before this present world and its ungodly inhabitants are destroyed.
The key to what happens to the nations of the world in Bible prophecy is how they treat Israel. The Bible prophesies that, at the End of the Age, all nations (including the USA) will come against Israel and be destroyed (Zechariah 12:3).
In spite of Donald Trump's rhetoric in support of Israel, as previous presidents have done, he continues to pressure that nation to make peace with the Palestinians, concessions with whom the Palestinians will just use as stepping stones to Israel's destruction.
Now, high ranking members of the President's national security staff including the Secretary of State, the Secretary of Defense and the President's National Security Advisor are making it known that they consider Israel rather than the Palestinians the problem - the hindrance to peace in the Middle East.
Make no mistake about it, when the U.S. does overtly turn against Israel, that will spell the end of America as a sovereign nation.
