Is The Tribulation At The Door?

Is The Tribulation At The Door?

And he will make a firm covenant with the many for one week, but in the middle of the week he will put a stop to sacrifice and grain offering:… Dan. 9:27a

The 70 Weeks of Daniel Bible prophecy, Daniel 9:24-27, is the most important prophecy in the Bible regarding the last days just before and just after the Rapture.

If someone doesn’t correctly understand its prophetic meaning/predictions, their whole prophetic outlook could be affected.

So if you’re fuzzy or unfamiliar with this prophecy, it’s covered succinctly and in detail in The Bible’s Big Picture, a video that covers the entire Bible in 30 minutes. CLICK HERE  (Start at the 7-minute mark for 3 or 4 minutes for the Daniel 9 explanation.)

There is one part of that Daniel 9:24-27 prophecy that directly concerns us today. So to get started, let’s reword Dan. 9:27a in plain English:

And the New World Leader(1) will strengthen an existing covenant/agreement with many for a specific period of 7 years. After 3 1/2 years this covenant/agreement/treaty will be broken and Jewish sacrifices on Mt. Moriah will be stopped. [BP translation]

I’m not a Hebrew scholar but that’s the best I can do using my Interlinear Bible. The key points are:

“he” - referring to the New World Leader

“strengthening an existing agreement” referring to something already in place.

“with many” - probably including Israel.

“7 years” - which is referring to the future 7-year Tribulation/God’s wrath on the earth.

So the verse pointedly says that the Tribulation begins with the signing of this 7-year covenant/treaty/agreement orchestrated by the New World Leader just after the Rapture.

From a dispensationalist viewpoint, the signing begins post-Rapture. So we won’t be here.

To best understand the context of this verse, we need to first back up to see what will have just happened.

1) Rapture

The Rapture shocks the world (2), but does not surprise grounded Believers.(3)

2) Russia Invades Israel

With God’s Restraining Holy Spirit removed at the Rapture, the long anticipated Ezekiel 38/39 Russian/Iranian invasion of Israel begins using nuclear weapons.(4)

3) USA Destroyed

Russia (probably coordinating with China) also launches nuclear missiles at the USA and demolishes her.

For this reason in one day her plagues will come, pestilence and mourning and famine, and she will be burned up with fire; for the Lord God who judges her is strong. Rev. 18:8

…for in one hour such great wealth has been laid waste! Rev. 18:17

and the light of a lamp will not shine in you any longer; and the voice of the bridegroom and bride will not be heard in you any longer(*); for your merchants were the great men of the earth, because all the nations were deceived by your sorcery [Grk=pharmakia/drugs]. Rev. 18:23

( * - That mention of no more weddings is contrasted to the verse in Matthew 24 and Luke 18 saying that up until the Rapture there will be weddings and social events…and electricity, and an economy, etc…which is good news—so as we see the day approaching, we also see our Rapture “rescue” approaching!)

The bottom line is that the USA is a non-player in end-time events post-Rapture. But she will hold together until the Rapture.

4) God Repels The Russian/Iranian Invasion

God does a protective miracle, on the scale of parting-of-the-Red-Sea, that shows the world He is again actively protecting Israel.

I [God] will strike your bow from your left hand and dash down your arrows from your right hand. You will fall on the mountains of Israel, you and all your troops and the peoples who are with you; Ezek. 39:3-4

Don’t miss the fact God, not Israel, defeats this Russian invasion!

I will magnify Myself, sanctify Myself, and make Myself known in the sight of many nations; and they will know that I am the LORD. Ezek. 38:23

I will not let My holy name be profaned anymore. And the nations will know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel. Ezek.39:7

With the USA in ashes, Israel is left standing alone in the world. And with nuclear weapons now out of the bag, she goes on offense taking out all her surrounding enemies one-by-one.

In that day I will make the clans of Judah like a firepot among pieces of wood and a flaming torch among sheaves, so they will consume on the right hand and on the left all the surrounding peoples, while the inhabitants of Jerusalem again dwell on their own sites in Jerusalem. Zech. 12:6

The surrounding Muslim nations will be no match for Israel’s war machine, which is prophesied to be “an exceeding great army” when they are resurrected as a nation in the latter days in their land (1948).

So I prophesied as He commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they came to life and stood on their feet, an exceedingly great army. Ezek. 37:10

With the Muslim nations collectively screaming at the top of their lungs to “Make Israel stop annihilating us,” a peace will be brokered by the newly revealed New World Leader between Israel and ten nations—the ten nations/ten toes of Daniel 7. Five from the west leg (Rome), five from the east leg (Istanbul).

Because Israel is negotiating from a strength position, she'll be allowed to rebuild her Jewish Temple and go back to sacrifices on the Temple Mount on Mount Moriah.

When the covenant is signed, the last seven years, Tribulation/the Time of Jacob’s Trouble begins. I believe there will be about 50 days between the Rapture and the covenant signing.(5)

So now we’re hearing that the UN is proposing a 7-year deal (6)— but is it THE 7-year treaty of Daniel 9:27? The first thing to ask, is there currently in place a covenant or treaty to “strengthen?”

Actually there are two possibilities.

In 2015 Israel committed to the new UN Sustainable Development Agenda to fight Climate Change. I think their embracing Covid va((ines was rooted in them wishing to be a good "World Citizen" country.

Maybe. But the more likely agreement that needs "strengthening" to qualify for the "Covenant" was:

Conference of the Parties, Glasgow, Scotland, Oct. 2021


In brief summary, at this demon-driven conference there were 120 world leaders, over 22,000 delegates and some 4000 media representatives who met for two weeks. Sounds like enough to qualify as "many" to me. The result of their agreement was to reaffirm the Paris accords from 2015.

They also agreed to reduce fossil fuels and non-electric cars due to them thinking they’re the main driver of Climate Change. Apparently our government is "all in" for using "Climate Change" to force people to submit to their policies.

(If you missed our article on Climate Change being all about control, CLICK HERE  It's worth a skim-read to see the hypocrisy in what the Globalists/Satanists are saying.)

In the Glasglow meeting they also demanded that private financial institutions and central banks move to realign trillions of dollars toward achieving global net zero emissions. In other words, they want to control all the monetary transactions. Interesting and we know where that's headed.

So coming up September 18, the day after the last trump of Rosh Hashanah, they want to meet and put teeth into this world agreement.

And they will claim their goal is world peace...but they lie.

Even their "Goals" are all about control of the masses.

It certainly SOUNDS like all this could fit the Daniel 9:27 prophecy. After all, the Globalists/Satanists are trying to change the entire world. And a lot of Bible prophecy teachers are saying this 7-year plan could be the long-awaited Daniel 9 prophetic fulfillment.

However, since the Daniel 9 prophecy is so key, so hugely important, I find it somewhat hard to believe the Lord would bury its fulfillment where only some people knew about it through Internet searches.

I would have expected God to do something like “parting of the Red Sea”…something huge that the world could see and hear about. Or like stopping the earth’s rotation.

But maybe I’m wrong. It’s possible this COULD be the beginning of the 7-year Tribulation in September. This could be proof that the Rapture is at the door. But I’m not buying in just yet.

God's 7-Day Warning?

I think the proof will come if God gives us a warning like He did Noah.

When Jesus said just before Rapture would be JUST LIKE the days of Noah, we can conclude that the world today would be just like in Noah’s day — blinded by sin and knowing not what is about to come upon them.

In Noah's day, the only people who knew what was coming on the earth were Noah and his family. They knew exactly what was happening. Especially when God told them it was time to load the Ark!

“For after seven more days, I will send rain on the earth” Gen. 7:4

Don't miss this…God warned Noah that the flood was coming seven days in advance!

This is info that Noah would have shared with his family who, incidentally, were the only ones looking for a worldwide flood.

In Jesus' illustration, Noah represents the Church. So it's quite possible God will give us a 7-day warning too. No clue how.

But if on Sept. 10, one week before Rosh Hashanah’s last trumpet sound on Sept. 17, God gives His Believers a heads-up, something tremendously obvious confirming the Rapture is 7 days away, seven days later on Sunday morning I’ll be standing on the east side of the church building holding a blue Millions Missing? booklet!

If the Rapture does happen, those post-Rapture instructions for those left behind will be in the pile of clothes on the ground along with my dental implants and screws from my long-ago broken ankle.

But if nothing happens this Rosh Hashanah, a week or so later we’ll be cruising from Rome to the Holyland to see our Bible come alive… with time to relax while contemplating the coming year!

King Charles Invites Satan To Rule

3-minute vide0


Well, the King of Great Britain is calling for a New World Leader. Of course he is. He has no clue what's coming.





According to state-run Russian Television (RT), the Russian Government has confirmed that Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa, known as the “BRICS” nations, will introduce a new trading currency backed by gold.

And some 30 other nations want to join them...keep your eye on this one!


Biden Snubs Israel



President Joe Biden doubled down on refusing to invite Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to pay a customary visit to the White House, despite the fact that Netanyahu was elected last year by the Israeli people.

Biden said in March that he would not invite Netanyahu to the White House because of his government’s attempt to reform Israel’s powerful judiciary — reforms that largely parallel existing practice in the U.S.

In an interview with CNN’s Fareed Zakaria Sunday, Biden said that he would not invite Netanyahu until he could “work through … his existing problems in terms of his coalition,” referring to Israel’s governing parties.

Biden said that some of Netanyahu’s coalition partners were the “most extreme members of Cabinet that I’ve seen” since meeting Prime Minister Golda Meir in the early 1970s, whom he noted was not an extremist.

However, Biden met quickly with both prime ministers from the last coalition government, which included an Arab party regarded as extremist by many Israeli Jews because it denies the right of the State of Israel to exist.

Weiss Ratings: 4000 Banks Projected To Fail



“Since 2008, among the 539 banks that have failed, Weiss Ratings has provided advance warning on 535, or 99.3%.” 

That sure would quickly set up a new monetary system... and guess who would be in charge?

The Latest Fake Charges Against Biden Opposition

This is the guy Biden is trying to shut-up by throwing him in jail. More proof we've basically lost our country unless God does a miracle... or the Rapture rescues us.


Making The World Obey

People have been conditioned to accept totalitarian policies they likely would have never gone along with in the past. And this social conditioning could make it easier when forcing the public to comply during the next pandemic—at least, that’s what officials in the United Kingdom are saying.

Professor David Halpern is the chief executive of the Behavioral Insights Team, also known as the “Nudge Unit.” The organization is based in the UK and works with governments on social engineering, psychology, and tactics to get citizens to comply with policies.

And as The New York Times now reports, a new health crisis is already upon us. And luckily we already have a response to it. A way to stop it in its tracks. And that is, a new vaccine.

It states, “To prevent a repeat of last winter’s “tripledemic” of respiratory illnesses, Americans will be encouraged to roll up their sleeves not just for flu shots but for two other vaccines, one of them entirely new.”

It notes that U.S. federal health officials are now encouraging three shots: the flu shot, the COVID shot, and the RSV shot.

Satanic Temple Tours U.S. Capitols Mocking God



Seems Satan didn't like all the prayer, praise and worship going on around in our state capitals...so he's bringing his own followers shouting "Let Us Burn."  Boy are they going to be surprised one day!


Fascinating Craig Bong Interview

60-minute video


Craig Bong, who I had never heard of before someone sent this to me, covers a lot of ground about what's going on. He seems to know his stuff and I found myself enthralled with his comments. Long, but quite interesting.



Mostly just pics and quotes...

The Bible says a wise man has many counselors (Prov.15:22; 11:14; 24:6). It also says, "As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another." Prov. 27:17. Great advice but don't miss the fact that this helps you understand who is right and who is wrong.

The first to plead his case seems right, until another comes and examines him. Prov. 18:17 

You have to look at both sides, or multiple sides, of a question to guide you to the best answer.

So it's a big deal when Facebook, Twitter, Google, LinkedIn, etc., keep alternative information from being considered. It means we're living in a communist country and are being controlled. If you don't "do what they say," you'll pay the price. So we offer all this additional information each week to give Believers more information as alternative reading.

How smart devices are damaging kids brains...



I heard years ago that Gates and Jobs wouldn't let their kids use smart phones until the age of 18. Now I know why.

  • Children ages 9 to 10 who use electronic devices for seven hours or more per day exhibit premature thinning of the brain cortex, the outer brain layer that processes information from the five physical senses.
  • As little as two hours of screen time per day may impact cognition, resulting in lower scores on thinking and language tests.
  • Infants under the age of 2 do not effectively learn language from videos; they need live interaction.
  • Babies do not transfer what they learn from the iPad to the real world. For example, the ability to play with virtual Legos does not transfer over to the skill of manipulating real Lego blocks.
  • Apps and social media are designed to be addictive, and young children are far more susceptible to addiction than adults.
