Practical Preparedness

blood moon temple mount 2008

Are you prepared for the days ahead? Tribulation and judgment are coming and the Lord will be gathering His people unto Himself. God has clarified His plans with the signs in the heavens. God said, “Let there be lights in the vault of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark sacred times, and days and years. (Gen. 1:4)

“Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him. (Matt.24:42-44)

Jesus, Himself warned us so we might be prepared for the days of trouble. He told us of wars, famines, pestilences and earthquakes. He said that the world will hate us because of Him. People will be offended and betray each other. Love will grow cold, and hate, deception and lawlessness will abound. Continue reading

The Imminent Judgment of God (Pt. 5)

John then told me about a pastor that contacted him and ordered 150 of his books for his church. This pastor had a Dr. of Theology degree, very strong in the Word, and has pastored for over 40 years in a well-known and well-respected denomination that has preached a pre-trib rapture forever! John read from his letter:

“Dear John,

I pastor a large Baptist church in North Carolina, and as such I have been taught and have taught for many years that there would be a pre-tribulation rapture. Several weeks ago, a member of my previous congregation called and told me that I just had to read your book. As I told you on the phone, I probably would not have purchased this book at first glance at a book store. But at my friend’s insistence, I ordered it. I did my first reading per the advice of a former college professor who told us to read books like we eat fish, ‘eat the meat and spit out the bones.’ In other words, if you stop reading a book at the first place where you disagree with the author, you will probably never finish, or you will finish very few books.

You will Know The Day of the Lord

Jewish Rabbis and some Christian educators teach that the sun, moon and stars are used by God as signs for those who are “watchful” so we will know about the return of Jesus and not be caught by surprise or unaware. There are also signs of future judgment, so we will have time to prepare and be ready for the days ahead. Part of the Jim Bakker ministry is to prepare the flock for what is to come.

Blood moons are known as “lunar eclipses” and have been used by God to show His judgment on the nation of Israel and solar eclipses are a sign of judgment upon the nations of this world as well. Continue reading

The Imminent Judgment of God (Pt. 4)

This entry is part 4 of 4 in the series The Imminent Judgment of God

John went on to talk about how we will know when the Lord is coming again: “I want to share the revelation that God gave me. And that revelation is in Matthew 24 verse 3. Jesus’ disciples, they wanted to know, ‘When are you coming?’ They corner him on the Mount of Olives. I can just see him. It’s like Jesus is getting ready to go and they know he’s not going to be around much longer. ‘And before you leave, Lord, you’ve got to tell us; what are we supposed to be looking for? What are we going to have to go through?’”

“As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately. ‘Tell us,’ they said, ‘when will this happen, and what will be the sign of your coming in the end of the age?’ When Jesus’ disciples ask this question, ‘What will be the sign of your coming?’ Do you know what they were really asking? ‘Lord, what are we going to see leading up to your coming? What are we going to have to go through leading up to your coming?’” Continue reading

The Imminent Judgment of God (Pt. 3)

This entry is part 3 of 4 in the series The Imminent Judgment of God

So many are realizing that just maybe we’re going to go through some things before the rapture. That is an amazing change of heart and mind, especially for pastors. I recently heard from a pastor that changed his mind about the timing of the rapture after preaching a pre-tribulation rapture for 40 years! I know that had to be hard for him, because it was hard for me, too, when God changed my mind after I studied every word of the Bible while in prison. And they say you can’t be rehabilitated!

So now we’re going to talk about the six things that have to take place before the rapture. Jesus told us that He didn’t want us to be caught unaware, that we’re to watch for these signs, signs that are popping all over the place right now. What’s happening in Israel right now is one of the signs of the time. The signs in the sun, the moon, and the stars, many are happening right now. The floods, the droughts, the economic woes; all of this stuff is happening now. So, if we were instructed to watch that we would not be caught unaware, then how can these signs not mean anything?

The Imminent Judgment of God (Pt. 2)

This entry is part 2 of 4 in the series The Imminent Judgment of God

John Shorey made the point that the middle class is disappearing in this country and we now have the very rich and those who are working two jobs at Walmart and McDonalds to make ends meet! John continued to read from Racing Towards Judgment, “God will judge this nation with economic disasters. Critical money problems will strike large and small cities alike.”

Then, David Wilkerson addresses the current issues of our day (in Racing Towards Judgment) that are in our news headlines with chilling accuracy; “There will be violence everywhere. Unheard of violence. Unbelievable violence. Unnecessary violence. Uncontrollable violence. The violence seething beneath the surface for years will explode.” They are saying today, this week, that crime is rising and even death. There is unrest in America, and when all this poverty hits and there is no food, it’s going to explode like crazy! If 50 million people suddenly did not receive their food stamp allocations, we will be seeing violence erupting in virtually every city in America. Continue reading

The Imminent Judgment of God (Pt. 1)

This entry is part 1 of 4 in the series The Imminent Judgment of God

So much is happening in our world. The reason we bring news into our show is because it’s the Revelation fulfillment – it’s the fulfillment of the entire book of Revelation and the signs of the End of the Age in Matthew 24.

It’s amazing that all of the prophetic word is being fulfilled – the droughts, the slaughtering of Christians. This ISIS is killing Christians – Jesus said before I come back, they will hate you and put you to death because of my name (Matthew 24:9). I never thought in the United States of America that people would hate Christians, but it is an antichrist spirit, and anti-Word spirit. You can get a comic book into schools but not a Bible! In the news recently, there was a 5th grader that was banned from reading the Bible during ‘free reading’ time! And a teacher was punished and banned from bringing her Bible to school. She wasn’t reading it to the class; she was just reading it for her own devotional! She could have a pornographic book, or x-rated material sitting on her desk, and she could get by with that. And during this last season, a professor specifically told his students that you cannot thank God during your graduation speech. Continue reading

Trumpets are Sounding (Pt. 3)

This entry is part 3 of 3 in the series Trumpets are Sounding

Prophetic consensus from many sources is that the beginning of the Great Tribulation will be in 2015. John Shorey went through David Wilkerson’s and other prophecies about an economic collapse preceded by a great earthquake in the northwest. John said that considering the huge bubble in the stock market today, this economic collapse can’t be far off and he believes it could be this Fall – with the obvious indicator that a huge earthquake is even closer. If the dominos start to fall, everything could fall into place and happen very quickly – in less than six months!

John noted that on March 20th, 2015, a solar eclipse will happen which, prophetically speaking, indicates the judgment of the Gentile nations, which includes the United States of America. Three and one-half years after the Spring of 2015 (the possible beginning of the Great Tribulation), would be September of 2018… the week of the Feast of Trumpets and the 70th year from the rebirth of Israel in 1948!

A One-String Fiddle (Pt. 2)

This entry is part 2 of 2 in the series A One-String Fiddle

In Part 1, we talked about how a good friend believes in you and will always have God’s heart for you, which means they believe in the dream for you that is God-given and existed from the foundation of the world. Isn’t it amazing that God gives dreams to individuals to accomplish something for His kingdom – and after He gives them, no matter what forces of hell come against the dream, God still doesn’t take it back! It’s given for eternity, and one can do nothing except go forward towards that dream all the days of their life – unless they quit.

You can quit on God, but God will never quit on you. Continue reading

Jews Returning to Israel

The Bible prophesied the dispersion of the Jews after the Babylonian and Roman conquests of Israel and that the nation of Israel would dwell for many years outside of their own country.

The Bible foretold that after some time had passed, the Israelites would return to their ancient possession. Those of us in this final generation have witnessed and continue to see this supernatural prediction come true.

There are many scriptures that declare the return of the Jews to their land of Israel. Continue reading
