Want to know how much longer life on planet Earth as we presently know it will continue? I've been trying to relate this message of TRUTH to members of this forum for years to no avail. According to the Fig Tree Prophecy the Rapture must happen between now and the year 2021. No day or hour predicted, simply the season as prophesied by our Lord. This is a lengthy read because nothing is left out. This message isn't meant to scare us, it's meant to prepare us. The BIG QUESTION is, are you intelligent enough to care enough to read and comprehend it? Be it... "A Prophetic Picture Of America, Jerusalem...A Burdensome Stone For All People, or,We ARE The Last Generation - how much time is left?" , this article says it best.

Trump Turkey decision advances prophecy clock

President Donald Trump's agreement to allow Turkey to invade Northern Syria endangers the lives of Kurdish allies, Christians in the area, and advances the prophecy clock. This is a foreign policy decision where withdrawing American troops in the area could very well allow the mass genocide of Kurds who loyally supported the US in the fight against ISIS. Turkey long has wanted to attack the Kurds in Syria, which Turkish dictator "president" Tecep Tayyip Erdogan believes pose a threat to Turkey's national security. Iran also seeks to control the Kurds. This foreign policy decision by the US president has the makings of converging Iran and Turkey into a conflict that has massive end-time implications.

According to sources with knowledge of the situation, Iran has made incredible advances toward controlling the Middle East in Syria, Iraq, Kurdistan, and Lebanon. In Daniel 8:19, Gabriel says, "Behold, I will make thee know what shall be in the last end of the indignation: for at the time appointed the end shall be. The ram which you saw having two horns are the kings of Media and Persia. And the rough goat is the king of Grecia." Strong's Concordance interprets the word "Grecia" in Hebrew as "Yavan, a son of Japheth (the third son of Noah), his descendants and their land." The Genesis 10 table of nations indicates this area was not only Greece (as Bible interpretations imply), but also the Eastern Mediterranean, including parts of modern Turkey (Magog, Tubal, Meshech). The ram would correspond with modern Iran.

Turkey also has been making moves to cement power over the Middle East. In January, after the US announced it was pulling out of Syria, Erdogan met with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Russia supports Iran. Syria is a vassal state of Iran. A 1998 agreement between Russia and Turkey, according to Bloomberg, "states that Syria won't permit any activity on its territory that would jeopardize Turkey's security." Putin was leveraging the 1998 agreement to say that Syria will take care of the Kurds in Syrian territory, hoping that Turkey will restore ties with Syria. Prophecy will eventually bring clarity to this complex situation, and it appears that the US president is accelerating that clarity.

Ezekiel 38 says that in the end of days, God will put a hook in Gog of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal (all in Turkey), to lead a coalition of Persia (Iran), Libya; and Ethiopia (Sudan) against Israel. When we see Iran being brought into such a coalition with Turkey and these prophetic nations aligning against Israel, we know this time is near. This action by the US president not only appears to open the door to possible genocide of Kurds and Christians in Northern Syria, but also advances the prophecy clock by bringing the ram and goat of Daniel 8 into closer orbit. The move by Trump is perplexing because the Kurds, even more than Turkey, have fought against ISIS in Syria. There may be an Ezekiel 38 "hook" in Trump's nose leading into these end-time events. Watch and pray.

It goes without question that a strong Satanic influence is permeating our country and ALL of end time prophecy is converging, however, we are not living in Revelation chapter 13. We are living at the very end of Chapter 3. The Rapture takes place at the beginning of Chapter 4 with "Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this".

Three things that we can be certain of.....1] “They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness” (2 Thessalonians 2:10-12). Simply put, God sends a strong delusion to those who chose not to believe the gospel of Christ. Those who take delight in mocking and rejecting Him, He will condemn.

2] When one knows the truth and refuses to obey it, he is subject to any lie, any deception, any untruth that man can conjure up. “For although they knew God, they neither glorified Him nor gave thanks to Him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools” (Romans 1:21-22) As a result of man’s foolishness and his arrogant disdain of the things of God, “God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done” (Romans 1:28). And correspondingly, “Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things, but also approve of those who practice them” (Romans 1:32).

3] Read my signature. We won't have to be looking up much longer, time is extremely short. The Lord said in the FIG TREE PROPHECY that the re-birth of ISRAEL would mark the beginning of this Last Generation. If we use a generation of 80 years (with years of labor and sorrow) according to Psalms 90:10, then the year for 1948 generation to be over is (1948 + 80 years): 2028. Taking into account the seven-year Tribulation period, that would place the latest year for Rapture and the beginning of the Tribulation to occur as (2028 – 7): 2021. That's only 15 months from now.:victory:

Twinkling or Blinking of an Eye

By Dennis Huebshman​

This message is dedicated to all the procrastinators out there who are buying into Satan’s lie that there’s plenty of time to accept Jesus – but just do it later. Also, for those who believe – and I have actually heard people say this – that they can call out to accept Jesus when the trumpet sounds, and the shout from the archangel is heard. (any emphasis is mine)

There are numerous definitions on the internet about “Twinkling/Blinking” of an eye. One of the easiest to understand is on “Discovery World.” First, the “Twinkle.” This is the time it takes for light to enter the eye, reach the back of the eye, and be reflected back out. Light travels at 186,000 miles per second, so the Twinkle is about one billionth of a second.

The “Blinking” is a bit slower. A blink lasts somewhere between 300 and 400 milliseconds, or considerably less than half a second.

Taking both of these into consideration, and understanding why the Apostle Paul used this term, defies anyone to be able to react anywhere close to the given timeframe. Depending on the translation, the Bible uses “Twinkling” or “Blinking” of an eye, but both mean the same thing – it’s super-fast!

Now for the verses these actions refer to. In 1 Corinthians 15:51-53, “Behold, I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep [die], but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the Twinkling of an Eye [ESV], at the last trumpet [not a judgment trumpet of Revelation]. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed. For this perishable body must put on the imperishable, and the mortal body must put on immortality.” (Note: the soul, which has been with Jesus since death will be reunited with the body (Philippians 1:21).

Next, 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17, “But we do not want you to be uninformed, brothers, about those who are asleep, that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope [those bound for the judgment of Revelation 20:11-15]. For since we believe that Jesus died, and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with Him those who have fallen asleep. For this we declare to you by a word from the Lord, that we who are alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord Himself will descend from Heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead [very important] in Christ will rise first. Then, we [all believers] who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet Jesus in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord.”

Once the body and soul are reunited on their way up to meet Jesus in the clouds/air, there will be an instant conversion to an eternal, immortal body designed to last forever in Heaven with Jesus and all the Saints. For all true believers that are still alive at the call, body and soul are still together. As we ascend to be with Jesus, we will be converted to our forever bodies as well. Once everyone gets to Jesus, we will all be taken to our Home in Paradise to wait for the 7-year wrath to end. The "Twinkling/Blinking" could happen at any second. Just looking at the condition of this world today, everything spoken of by Jesus, Paul and others is very much here. Don't make the mistake of believing you can wait to hear the call before asking Jesus to be your Savior. It will be long over before you even realize it took place. Today, right now, would not be too early to call on Him.

The Prophecy of Isaiah 17:1

"The burden against Damascus. 'Behold, Damascus will cease from being a city, and it will be a ruinous heap.'"​

Most, if not all of us who are passionate about Bible prophecy believe that the war of Psalm 83 , Isaiah 17:1 and the Rapture will happen prior to the Tribulation Period and will be the genesis of the great invasion of Israel predicted in Ezekiel's prophecy in Ezekiel chapter 38. Here's something we must all think about very seriously:Biblically, Damascus is to fall, and to collapse, and to cease from being a city ... as Isaiah 17 says. Understand that such a thing might bring about a great war on Israel from the site of the three musketeers from the north: the Iranians, the Turks, and of course the Russians are already there. And their bankrupted allies - Sudan and Libya. So, we are watching all these things happen right now before our very eyes." If you want to know how close the return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is - it is wise to keep your eyes on Syria, especially Damascus. And because of the presence of the three bully presidents of Russia, Turkey, and Iran, there is no telling how close we truly are to the Rapture of the church.

Does it feel like the world is spinning out of control?
Distress of Nations with Perplexity
(Luke 21:24)​

Hong Kong has hundreds of thousands of people standing in defiance of the Chinese government, and their government in Beijing doesn’t know what to do. Many people have been injured and arrested in the huge protests. England has been in turmoil over BREXIT, their desire to leave the European Union. Germany has major problems with migrants and millions of Germans are fed up with how the government has handled the crisis. India and Pakistan are still squabbling over Kashmir with their armies deployed on the border. Turkey’s invasion of Syria sent hundreds of thousands of Kurds fleeing, with Russian forces stepping in. Lebanon is in upheaval with hundreds of thousands pouring into the streets demanding that their government leave its offices. Haiti has imploded and is in complete chaos. In our own country, the Democrats have been trying to impeach President Donald J. Trump from the moment he took office and overthrow the will of the American people.

In Matthew 24, the disciples ask Jesus, “What shall be the sign of thy coming, and the end of the world?”

Jesus’s response is a detailed description of the condition of the world and what it will look like in the last days. Wars and Rumours of Wars, Nation rising against Nation, famines, pestilences, earthquakes, these being the beginning of sorrows. He depicts persecution and an abounding iniquity that would cause the love of many to wax cold and divisions that would cause loved ones to betray one another.

In Luke 21:24, Jesus says, “There will be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth Distress of Nations with Perplexity, the seas and the wave roaring.”

Franklin Graham describes our current global state of turmoil amongst the nations, and we can’t help but recognize the distress of nations Jesus describes in Luke 21 and Matthew 24, matching what we see today.

Just as the psalmist tells us to lift our eyes, so does Jesus instruct his believers in the face of the times we are living in “When these things begin to come to pass, look up and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.” Luke 21:28

A reminder for those still sleeping...

We ARE The Last Generation - how much time is left?

The Parable of the Fig Tree

"Now learn a lesson from the fig tree. When its buds become tender and its leaves begin to sprout, you know without being told that summer is near. Just so, when you see the events I've described beginning to happen, you can know his return is very near, right at the door. I assure you, this generation will not pass from the scene before all these things take place. Heaven and earth will disappear, but my words will remain forever." (Matthew 24:32-35)

Link Removed

Let's take a closer look at the meaning of this parable...

"Now learn the parable of the fig tree ..."​

Firstly, the verb "learn" here is in the imperative mood, which means it is a command, not something optional. Next, who or what is the fig tree in this verse? (Remember only the Scriptures can be used to interpret the parables recorded in them) The answer to this question is unmistakably Israel. I'll give just ONE example in Hosea 9:10:

"I (God) found Israel like grapes in the wilderness; I saw your fathers as the first ripe in the fig tree at her first time." (Hosea 9:10)

In the above verse, God compares Israel to grapes and the fathers to fruits of the fig tree. Jesus often used fig tree in parabolic form when communicating things about Israel, and there are several other verses to confirm this (Joel 1:6-8, 12; Luke 13:6-9; Jeremiah 24; Jeremiah 29:16-19). Virtually every theologian will agree that in the Bible, Israel is referred to as the fig tree. In addition, the verse above is almost a direct parallel to what Jesus said in Matthew 24.

"When its buds become tender and its leaves begin to sprout, you know without being told that summer is near..."

The verb "know" here is also in the imperative mood in the Greek, which means it is a command. "He is near..." translated estin in Greek, literally means the time when the Lord is coming to establish His kingdom.

"I assure you, this generation will not pass from the scene before all these things take place."

When Jesus says “this generation,” the Greek word for generation here is genea. Genea refers to a particular age or time. Combined with the statement "all these things take place," which would include all the events of the seven year Tribulation - everything that Jesus had been talking about...the birth pains (vs. 4-14)...the abomination of desolation (vs. 15)...the need to flee because of the impending dangers (vs. 16-28)...and the catastrophic chaos of the universe (vs. 29), brings us to the conclusion that the generation in existence when Israel was formed will not pass away (die) before the Second Coming.

So what does this full verse mean? It simply means that the generation that sees Israel reborn and the fig tree "put out its leaves" is the same generation that will see the completion of the Tribulation and the return of Jesus Christ (Second Coming). Remember, this verse is in the imperative mood, which means it is a command for us - not just a parable to be overlooked!

And guess what? Israel, a country that had not really existed as a separate nation for nearly 2,500 years, was declared a new sovereign state by an act of the United Nations on May 14, 1948!


How long is a generation?

There's another obvious question concerning this parable: how long is a generation? The length of a generation has not always been constant since the days of Adam and Eve. From the time of Adam up to today, humanity lifespan on earth has been deteriorating.

The answer to this question can be found in the most significant and definitive declaration in the Bible for the life span of man which is given in Psalm 90 (Psalm 90:10). The Psalmist states that the life span of man is normally seventy years, eighty years if blessed with outstanding health:

"The days of our lives are seventy years; and if by reason of strength they be eighty years, yet is their labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away." (Psalms 90:10)

It's interesting that, even though Moses wrote Psalm 90 over 3,000 years ago, and he lived to be 120 years old, today, 70 years is almost exactly the average life expectancy of human beings worldwide. The average life span of those living today in Israel is between 70 and 80 years! It is reasonable to conclude that the generation Christ was talking about in the parable of the fig tree will also be 70 to 80 years in length.

In fact, Christ’s parable of the Fig Tree in Matthew 24:32-35 and Moses’ length of a generation in Psalm 90:10 seem to go hand in hand! Labour and sorrow is figurative of the great tribulation that is soon cut off, thus Jesus ends it when He comes riding on a horse to Armageddon battle and we fly away.

On 14th of May 1948, the state of Israel was proclaimed a nation! Since 1948, we have seen Israel put forth leaves on her tender branches both economically, military, financially and spiritually, and Israel has become a world force always on news all over the world. If the leaves of the fig tree can be said to have sprung forth in 1948, then the generation is 70 years old this year!

If we use a generation of 80 years (with years of labor and sorrow) according to Psalms 90:10, then the year for 1948 generation to be over is (1948 + 80 years): 2028. Taking into account the seven-year tribulation period, that would place the latest year for rapture and the beginning of the great tribulation to occur as (2028 – 7): 2021. That's only 1 year from now!

Israel's rebirth, along with recent prophetic events, are a strong indication that the generation Christ was talking about has already been born, and the return of Jesus Christ to establish His reign for a thousand years is very close at hand. Considering Israel will mark 70 years (normal life span of man) of statehood on May 14th this year, and the signs of the time are all around us, we must remain watchful and alert and continue spreading the gospel! Time is running out.

I am not attempting in any way, shape, form or fashion to set a day and hour for the return of Jesus, but I am revealing the season for His return. While the Bible says we don’t know the day or hour, it certainly says that we know the times and seasons (1 Thessalonians 5:1-10). Otherwise, what was the point of giving signs that would indicate His coming was near?

The time of the "last days" that Jesus referred to, is not "in the future", and it's not "coming soon". It is here right now. Stay alert, Jesus is coming!

In Lot's day, sexual immorality and homosexuality had taken control of the people of Sodom. And Jesus tells us that these things would be happening during the last days before His return. God made an example of the sexually immoral people in Lot's day who practiced homosexuality by destroying them with fire. It is a warning to us that we should not follow in their footsteps by practicing the same sins. Otherwise, America will be destroyed too. It doesn't take a genius to figure out that we are living in the time Jesus talked about. A time like the days of Lot where wickedness, sexual immorality, homosexuality, love of self and idleness would control the minds of men and women alike. Take a look around you, turn on the TV and you will see a world FULL of evil, corruption, violence and sexual immorality.

The world is full of people (INCLUDING professed Christians) who continue in their worldly lives as if nothing is going to happen. Think about this sobering fact for a minute. There are many commentators that say the population back in Noah's day was in the billions. And yet only 8 people were saved! - Noah and his family. Just think about that, only 8 people truly trusted in God and followed His will. The signs are so clear that we are living right at the very end of time for this world. Remember, ISRAEL, not America, is God's Prophetic Timepiece. Don't believe in Bible Prophecy? Keep your eyes on Damascus (Isaiah 17:14), while it's still there. Read my SIGNATURE and wake up.

Knowing that the Rapture must happen before 2021,and considering that we now have a government packed full of pedophiles, homosexual, lesbian, & bi-sexual perverts, Muslims, Marxists, Socialists, Communists and Baby Killers, common sense dictates as to why America can't survive the next year resembling anything even close to the America we experience today. The reality of the horrible consequences about to befall those Left Behind is much too frightening for most people to accept, and therefore they will perish. It is my heartfelt prayer that those reading this will wake up while there's still time.

2020...Beginning of The End

A great example of God using prophecy to prove He is who He says He is, and to authenticate ALL the promises and warnings found in the Bible is the present day ECONOMIC REALM that shows things are tracking precisely on God’s prophetic schedule.

That schedule is unfolding in such dynamic fashion, it's necessary to periodically remind us of that prophetic progression. It's to point out that this present generation is at the very place Jesus, Himself, said the LAST GENERATION (1948-2028) will be at the time of the Rapture. Every underlying indicator that this economy should have long ago imploded stares the experts in the face. Yet that bust has not occurred. As a matter of fact, those experts proclaim unprecedented economic uptick. They proclaim from the proverbial rooftops that this is the GREATEST ECONOMIC TREND in memory. Yet the lesser known fiscal observers note that this perceived economic trend toward reaching unknown stratospherics is all built on nothing but air. It is indeed a phenomenon. Never has there been such an extended time before economic correction takes place, according to the “experts.”

I don't believe that there will be any financial crash. Instead there would be a financial uptick, even an era of boom. This is all based upon this generation being the generation of Christ’s intervention into the affairs of mankind. Specifically, the Rapture of the Church being on the very brink of taking place. America is the apex nation of the world in economic terms. If the U.S. came crashing down, the entire world, so intricately linked to the almighty dollar, would suffer even greater meltdown. My conclusion was and is based upon Jesus’ prophecy about The Days of Noah and The Days of Lot found in Matthew 24: 36-42 and Luke 17: 26-30. Jesus said there would be, rather than economic catastrophe, a great uptick in buying, selling, building, and even in agricultural matters, like planting, etc. This believing God’s Word on prophetic matters, not on my own soothsaying abilities or “word of knowledge.”

Donald J. Trump, was supernaturally placed in position to see to it that that economic boom prophesied by the Lord Jesus has come to pass. America is in a tremendous financial uptick at present, even Trump detractors reluctantly admit. The economic boom predicted by Jesus Christ is right on track. Records are set daily in the DOW and other economic sectors despite that there are still the ominous trillions upon trillions of dollars of economic gravitational pull that should at any moment cause a catastrophic crash. Jesus said there is such a crash that will indeed take place. It will be at the moment He is next “revealed” to the world. That great, catastrophic, event will be the Rapture. Jesus said that judgment would fall upon the unbelievers of planet Earth that very day (Rev 4: 1).

According to the Fig Tree Prophecy we have 12 months left before the last seven years of man's history will begin. Jesus Christ, whose Birthday we celebrate at this time of year, is the only safe shelter from that coming, world-wide time of unprecedented horror. Again, the following is the way to make sure you are within His protective shelter during that great future storm...“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” (Rom 10: 9-10)
