Understanding Prophetically the Seasons and Times We're In December 21 2017
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Hosea 4:6
If you're going about your busy day, you may not even know the time we're in or the season, but there's a lot going on prophetically as it relates to end-times, the spiritual realm, and the Church. Some churches don't use Revelation messages in their ministry, and some may not know about these events as these may include Jewish holidays and dates that only Jewish people and prophets are aware of.
This article explores:
- Trump's Presidency Term
- Prophet Kim Clement's Message and Our Prophetic Word About N.Korea
- Jerusalem Recognized as Israel's Capital
- The Significance of 5778
- The 7th and 8th King and the Antichrist
- Trump and the 5777 Significance
- The Solar Eclipse
- The Book of Joel
- Yellowstone and the Earthquakes
- What is the Rapture?
Are all of the revelations and articles below true? Some may be just speculation, but they may also be worth exploring further. Consider bringing them up to your pastor. Pray over them and ask God to lead you. Ultimately, the goal or takeaway is to help you understand that these are indeed end-times and events that are occurring may not be coincidental, hence the need to not live in fear, but let the signs help you to get your house in order. So let's explore these further...
Trump's Presidency Term...
Some believe that Trump is not in office by accident. There was a lot of chatter online before and during the election that Trump's birth date lines up with the inauguration date and this is the reason that many Christians believe that God put Trump into office. We're including an excerpt from Prophet Kim Clement below about Trump, the Dow reaching 20,000, and the threat from the North and South. We're also including a Prophetic Word that Father God gave us on the matter in August when N.Korea started testing more missiles.
Prophet Kim Clement's Message from 2014...
The Prophetic Message God Gave Us About the North and South...
Posted on August 10, 2017 from the post, Show Me...
This morning I heard Father God say, "Wait and see what I'm about to do; the likes of which have never been seen before by man. I told them don't touch you. You are my property. Don't think you are a target. I am covering you. Get ready for a big explosion. Don't believe the news report. It's coming. Celebrate. It will happen fast. When you look to the North, say "I am not afraid of you." When you look to the South, say "God is still on the throne. He will bring peace to His people. He is a God who restores His people. I am your shelter, not man. I have angels surrounding you. I am responding to you. They will be held for their actions. They need to ask God for His mercy." Praise the Lord! He said, "I am covering you. I am protecting you. I am telling them take your hand off my people. Glorify the Father. You will turn around and you won’t see your enemies any more. He is sending a sign to the high-minded saying “Leave my people alone.” Stay in God’s shadow. Get ready for a big explosion. He’s about to act. It’s going to happen fast.”
Our Facebook Post for That Day:
If you turn on the news, chances are you turn it off right away. Reporter after reporter is saying, "An attack would be catastrophic, widespread, decimation, and total destruction." They don't know Jesus and they don't know the power of Our God.
Jesus said don't fear wars or rumors of wars, so don't fear a nuclear attack. Pray for our enemies because they need to be fearful of God's attack. For it is written, Touch not mine anointed, nor do my prophets harm. It is written, No weapons formed against me shall prosper. It is also written, No harm shall come near our dwelling places and no evil shall befall us. We are covered in Christ in the name of Jesus and by the blood of Jesus. We declare the victory. When you are out with people or watching the news and reading about it, be mindful that you don't take on the spirit of fear and panic, but stay calm, keep your peace, and pray. We rebuke the demons of panic. Rest assured that we serve the Most High God and He won't let our foot slip. We rebuke every demonic and sudden attack.
God only needs mustard seed faith as it's not by might, nor strength, but God's Spirit as we have a hedge of protection around us. He can use one smooth, shiny stone to take out a giant. When the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will raise up a standard. Be comforted by David's words when he slayed the giant, "You come against me with the sword and spear and javelin (flesh), but I come against you in the name of the Lord (Spirit, the Sword of the Lord, His name is a Strong Tower). In the name and blood of Jesus, the Lord will deliver us and we declare the victory over our enemies. God will cut the head of every enemy off. Lord, we offer up the highest praise to you for the victory!
And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me; therefore I will offer in His tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the Lord. Psalm 27:6
Jerusalem Recognized as Israel's Capital...
President Trump is announcing shortly that the U.S. Embassy will be moved to Jerusalem and that Jerusalem will be recognized as Israel's capital.
The Significance of 5778...
5778 is the start of the Jewish New Year from September 2017 to September 2018.
We turned to Curt Landry Ministries for an awesome message that coincides with our Sing Message to close out 2017 and usher in 2018:
Prepare Your Heart for New Beginnings in 5778
As we approach the Jewish year 5778 and the Fall Feasts, we are preparing our hearts for an awakening. We hope you will join us for these divine events!
We are excited here at Curt Landry Ministries, to usher in the Head of the Year—Rosh Hashanah, with a loud blast; a time of atonement on Yom Kippur; and a celebration of abiding with the Holy Spirit on Sukkot. As we meet for these Fall Feasts, we remember and celebrate these appointed times!
The Year 5778
Nothing is by accident, as God’s design is perfect and intentional. This year, look at what the numbers represent…
- The number five represents “grace.”
- The number seven represents “perfection.”
- The number eight represents “new beginnings.”
As Believers, we can look forward to this year, as we are born again—a new creation in Yeshua—just as the number eight represents.
“He has put a new song in my mouth—praise to our God; many will see it and fear, and will trust in the Lord.”—Psalm 40:3
How will you prepare for YOUR new beginning?
The 7th King and the 8th King (The Antichrist)...
It has been noted that the 7th King is in office for a short time. There is some speculation about the 8th king who was actually the 6th. The 8th king is what some are thinking may possibly be the antichrist. Here are articles that explore this further...
By Chris Schang, One of the most fascinating topics in the Bible is the coming one world government leader known in the Bible as the Antichrist. The Antichrist is Satan’s opposite of the Lord Jesus Christ. While Jesus Christ is heralded as the Son of God, the Antichrist will be the Son of Satan and a counterfeit to Jesus Christ. The Bible says that the Antichrist will be a man who rises to great power in the world after the rapture of the church. The Antichrist will stand for everything that Jesus does not stand for. While Jesus Christ stands for purity, righteousness, holiness, and many other things of goodness in contrast the Antichrist will stand for wickedness, evil, lies, and everything evil and wicked.
The Bible gives us numerous prophetic titles for the Antichrist. The Antichrist is often referred to as the man of sin, the lawless one, the son of perdition, the beast, the bloody and deceitful man, the wicked one, the adversary, and many other titles that all paint a dark and grim picture on Antichrist prophecy from the scriptures. The Bible offer quite a few prophecies about the future Antichrist, some of which we will list below. This list is not exhaustive, but will help you in understanding the role the Antichrist will play in the end times. Some Antichrist prophecies for the last days are as follows:
1. The antichrist will be a man – Daniel 7:24-25 2. He will rise among 10 kings – Daniel 7:8 – This 10 nation union will be a revived Holy Roman Empire – Daniel 2:44
3. He will uproot 3 kings from the original 10 kings to gain political power – Daniel 7:8
4. He will confirm a covenant for 7 years – Daniel 9:27
5. His 10 nation union will merge into a world government which he will dominate – Revelation 13:1-2
6. The world government over which he rules will be a red (communistic or socialistic) government – Revelation 17:14
7. He will be promoted and exalted by a miracle working religious partner (false prophet) – Revelation 13:11-12
Could the Antichrist Arise From the 8th King?
Taken from Charisma News:
Among the writings of the Old Testament prophets, Moses is named in Scripture 768 times, while Abram or Abraham's name is mentioned 303 times. The one individual who holds more predictions about His appearance and ministry throughout the Scriptures is the promised Messiah. The only other person who receives such attention in the biblical prophetic Scriptures is a person identified as the final prince of darkness called the Antichrist.
There are few Christians in America today who have not heard the term Antichrist. The average Christian in the Western Hemisphere who has read prophecy books, watched end-time DVDs or viewed apocalyptic-oriented television specials understands four basic facts revealed in Scripture about the coming Antichrist. They are:
- The Antichrist is a man who will form a final empire at the end of the age.
- The Antichrist will make a treaty with Israel for seven years.
- The Antichrist will eventually set up his kingdom in Jerusalem.
- The Antichrist will be involved in the final battle called Armageddon.
Two biblical prophets, Daniel and the apostle John, give numerous details in their writings and prophetic visions concerning this man's rise to power, his realm of influence and his violent reaction to those who reject his mission. Much of the church's historical understanding of this man comes from two prophetic books, Daniel and Revelation.
After studying this subject for more than 34 years, I have discovered many facts about this topic that are very clear in prophetic scriptures. I have also concluded that some church teachings from the past were based more on men's traditions or on "private interpretations" handed down from generation to generation. For example, have you ever attended a prophetic conference, read a prophetic book or came across research that taught the following?
- The Antichrist will be a Jew from the tribe of Dan.
- The Antichrist will rebuild a temple for the Jews on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.
These theories are based on individual interpretations or traditional theological ideas handed down for generations from a few early church fathers' specific interpretations. I firmly believe the following is an accurate description of coming events related to the Antichrist:
- The Antichrist will be a Gentile (from an Islamic background) and not a Jew from Israel.
- The Antichrist will not rebuild the Jewish temple—the prophet Elijah will initiate that process.
- The Antichrist will control the oil-rich Gulf States and will control much of Europe.
Trump and the Great Significance of 5777....
5777 has a great deal of significance.
POSSIBLE TRUMP PATTERN - 5777. The Jewish New Year began at sunset on October 2 of this year, introducing the Jewish New Year 5,777. In Hebrew, each letter of the alphabet has a specific numerical value. The Hebrew alphabetical letter represented by the number seven, is called Zayin. First, is unique and quite rare for there to be three sevens in the same year, as these three sevens will not be repeated for a thousand years from now (6,777). The Biblical number 7 is linked to "completion" and is considered the highest sacred number in the Scripture. It is noted by rabbinical sources, that this Hebrew letter Zayin, in both meaning and in its form, has three possible meanings concealed in the year 5,777. First, the letter alludes to the "return of light" or exposing in the light what is concealed in the darkness. For example, I just heard a U.S. Senator from Utah say on Fox News say, "We are going to shine the light on this corruption in Washington." This is the allusion to one meaning of this letter. A second interpretation related with Zayin is that the letter is in the form of a "sword," implying that a battle or a war of some type may loom over this year, 5,777, which is parallel to the Gregorian year 2017. Oddly, the letter Zayin is one of the final Hebrew letters that when used as a final form in a sentence has a decorative crown that scribes create on the top of the letter, forming a crown on the head of the letter. The rabbinical interpretation is that it can represent the "crowning of a man."
Now to Trump. Donald J. Trump was born born June 14, 1946 and is presently 70 years of age as of June 14, 2017. Going forward 7 months would be Janurary 14, 2017, and adding 7 days brings us to Jan 21st, which would be Trumps first full day in office if he were elected. He would begin his first full day one day after his official inaguaguation on Jan. 20th. These three sevens - 70 years, plus 7 months plus 7 days are three sevens - which may be linked, from a rabbinical perspective, to the Jewish year we are now in, 5,777. I have studied and taught the amazing prophetic parallels linked with sacred Biblical numbers, including measurements of the Tabernacle, the Ark of Noah and the Temple of Solomon, and how these measurements and numbers often conceal prophetic mysteries that can now be understood (see Dan. 12:12). Does this pattern reveal that there is a strange Providence behind the rise of Donald Trump, perhaps in the same manner of Nebucednazzar and Cyrus the King of Persia, who both fulfilled specific prophicies for their time that was linked with Israel and the Jews? Trump is the first Presidential candidate that said he will "officially" recognize Jerusalem as the capitol of Israel. Win or lose, it is good to finally, in my lifetime, see someone that is not afraid to be politically incorrect, and buck a totally corrupt system. Is his rise to this point prophetic? Only time will tell but repost this to everyone you can as it is quite interesting. P.S. In the old Hebrew manusripts there is an angel in Daniel called palmoni - meaning, "the numberer of secrets." Numbers are used throughtout the books of Daniel and Revelation.
The Solar Eclipse on August 21st...
Is God trying to give us a sign of some sort?
Historically, people have used the heavens, the stars, weather, and sun to look for signs from God. According to Pastor Mark Blitz, a total solar eclipse can be a warning sign to those in its path. It happened to Jonah with Nineveh and before World War I. For Christians, it's a good sign about the end times. Read Joel and Revelation. It's also a sign to pray, repent, and witness to others about Christ.
If you look at this eclipse, it's exactly 40-days (the 1st day of the month of Elul) until Yom Kippur. Jonah's eclipse may not be a coincidence. It happened again in 1914 when war was threatened from June of that year until August. Because these are the end times, scientists and Bible scholars are taking note of the "sign of the times." You see, a month after the eclipse, we start the Days of Awe. This is from Rosh Hashanah which is on Tishri 1 until Yom Kippur on Tishri 10. Some anticipate that a great sign of God can come in September in the celestial signs. This has been described in Revelation 12 and in the book of Joel.
Understanding the Book of Joel...
There is great significance to the end-times as deciphered in the Book of Joel. For that we are turning to a Jewish site, Vrienden van Israel by Joel C. Rosenberg, that has studied extensively with scholars to help interpret each verse and chapter. As this is a Jewish site, if you click on the link, remember to start from the bottom of the page for Part One and then work your way up the page for Part Five:
Part One: What is the “Day Of The Lord” and why does it matter?
Are we living in the last days of human history as we have known it? Are the tumultuous events and trends underway in the Middle East and around the world signs that the Messiah is coming to Earth soon to judge and to rule and reign from Jerusalem? What is the “Day of the Lord”? What are the “last days”? What does Bible prophecy teach about such things? And how should we live in light of such prophecies?
Answering these questions was the focus of the 2011 Epicenter Conference, which took place in Jerusalem on May 15-16. One Day One, a group of internationally renowned Bible teachers and I taught through the Old Testament “Book of Joel” verse by verse, chapter by chapter. We then had a panel discussion on lessons for Israel and the Church drawn from the Book of Joel. One Day Two, we had a series of panels where highly-regarded Israeli, Palestinian, American, Iranian and Indian pastors and Bible teachers explored the implications of these Bible prophecies for Israel and the Church in more depth in light of current events.
By God’s grace and to our great encouragement, some 700 evangelical Christians — including those from as far away as Uganda, Ghana, Germany, South Korea and South Africa — attended the The Joshua Fund’s annual conference in person. Since then, more than 31,500 people around the world have watched videos of the messages on-line at no charge at www.epicenterconference.com. Many have also pre-ordered a complete set of the messages on DVD so they can watch them with — or give them to — family members, friends, their small group Bible studies, home fellowship groups, or their whole church congregations.
I believe God wants all of Israel and all of the Church to turn our attention to the Book of Joel in the weeks and months ahead. There is a critically important message there that is on the Lord’s heart and it is deeply relevant for our time. Over the next few days, I’m going to share with you my own personal study and message notes from the Book of Joel. I hope you will find them helpful as you study the writings of this important minor prophet and teach them to others.
Let’s begin today with an overview. What follows are the notes I used to deliver the first message of the 2011 Epicenter Conference.
THE DAY OF THE LORD IS COMING: An overview of the Book of Joel
- The focus of this year’s Epicenter Conference is the Book of Joel. Today, we will go through...
Perry Stone's Prophetic Warning About Yellowstone...
"Scientists are now preparing for "extreme volcanic" activity, which could change the face of the earth, according to the latest findings from the European Science Foundation.
For prophet, evangelist and author Perry Stone, the study echoes prophecies laid out in Joel 2.
Stone issued a prophetic alert through Facebook, warning fans and followers of how biblical predictions parallel the scientific discovery.
"If you recall when I was teaching on the Blood Moon cycle, Joel 2 indicated it will be accompanied by 'Signs in the earth beneath; blood fire and vapor of smoke,' which are volcanic eruptions. A scientific report just released said there are more eruptions and shakings under the earth now than in the past 300 years," Stone writes.
The study focuses on "extreme geohazards"—including earthquakes, volcanoes, tsunamis and more—which are undergoing a 300-year period of extreme volcanic activity, according to Tech Times.
To prevent devastation from natural disasters, scientists are urging people to participate in "adaptation and migration" efforts. The entire globe is at risk—even the United States with the volcano in Yellowstone.
"Based on Joel 2:28-29, this is a definite indicator..."
Our Earthquake Message...
In September 2016, Father God revealed an earthquake dream in which I initially thought it meant to prepare for physical earthquakes. While we've definitely had those, what's significant is the shifting and shaking in the spiritual realm - the birth pangs, if you will. Many believe the earthquakes are part of global warming, but in the spiritual realm, the earthquakes are God shaking and shifting the atmosphere for the Church to wake up as we are in the last days and the end times.
In the dream, as I watched people duck and run for cover, I asked God what to do and He said to witness to as many as you can.
An additional message on earthquakes can be found in our August 21 Solar Eclipse post.
What is the Rapture?
Taken from Rapture Forums:
What is the Rapture?
According to some Protestant Christians, the Rapture is an end-time event when born-again Christians will be "caught up" into the air and meet Christ in the sky. Many believe that this will happen unexpectedly, and people will suddenly rise from their cars or kitchen tables into the sky. At some point after the Rapture, Christ will begin a thousand-year reign.
When will the Rapture occur?
The Rapture will occur at a time related to the tribulation, the seven-year period before the Second Coming of Christ during which the Antichrist will be in power. There are three major schools of thought about when it will occur:
Many believe the tribulation period will be a time of famine, disasters, and illness.
What are the biblical references to the Rapture?
The following verses, among others, have been interpreted by some to be evidence of the Rapture:
What will happen to those who are left behind?
Most of humanity will remain on the earth. God will pass judgment on non-believers during the tribulation period. Many predict mayhem for those who are left behind, including mass confusion, airplane and car crashes due to missing drivers and pilots, and rampant crime and lawlessness.
What is the "partial Rapture" theory?
The belief that certain Christians will rise to meet Christ at the beginning of the tribulation. During the tribulation, there will be other periods of Rapture, when more believers will rise in the air to meet Christ.
What will happen after the Rapture/tribulation period?
Christ will begin his thousand-year reign on earth, which will be a time of justice, peace, and joy. When this millennial reign comes to a close, history will end and there will be a "new heaven and a new earth."
