When Does The "Last Trumpet" Sound?

Dear Compass Supporters:

The 2024 Biblelands Cruise brochure is now available! CLICK HERE

There are few privileges in life more fulfilling than this knock-your-socks-off trip. If you haven't toured the Holyland, this is about as good as it gets.

With all that's going on in the world, if the Rapture doesn't happen soon, international air travel will become more and more difficult, if not impossible, to book. We encourage you to travel while you can still travel! So pray about joining Dave Reagan and me on this incredible Biblelands trip!

Millions Missing?—Spanish Version

We just received our long-awaited Spanish version of the Millions Missing? booklet. Thanks so much, Compass supporters, for making this happen. And also thanks to the one supporter who did all the editing. I won't mention his name because we want him to be well-rewarded one day!

We're so fired-up we decided to send out an additional 10,000 (a total of 110,000 English and Spanish booklets) to Spanish-speaking people in the U.S. We pray the Lord will use all of them!

We do realize that the Rapture may or may not happen in September. So we may be mailing more next year, or for years to come. But we also know God has used these booklets in people's lives. So it's certainly a win-win.

The article this week is about why the Rapture has to happen BEFORE the 7-years of Tribulation. You can count on it!



...walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, to please Him in all respects, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; Col. 1:10b


When Does The "Last Trumpet" Sound?

Last week on Compass TV (compass.org/TV) we featured the late Ed Hindson’s excellent Steeling the Mind Conference presentation, “The Air-tight Case For Pre-Trib Rapture.” That title alone was probably enough to “Release the hounds” against my Pre-tribulational Rapture position. And, predictably, they came blasting with both barrels.

I used to call these Mid- and Post-Rapture people “brain dead” and “dumber than a box of rocks.” But eventually I came to the conclusion that I was wrong to respond that way to my brothers and sisters in Christ who have been so blatantly deceived by the devil. I should have more compassion for them.

So I’m working on my responses to those who hold to inconsistent doctrines.

And, for what it's worth, Susie and I were saved in the late seventies in a church where the pastor was staunchly Mid-Trib. So defending a Mid-Trib position was one of the first things I learned as a new Believer. I’ve heard every argument under the sun why Pre-Trib Rapture is supposedly wrong.

But over the years of being a “vocal” Believer proclaiming the Bible was 100% accurate, I had to learn to be a Biblical Apologist... able to defend my belief that every word in the Bible was inspired by God.

All Scripture is inspired by God (God-breathed) and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; 2Tim. 3:16

And it didn't take long to come to the inescapable conclusion that Mid-or Post-Trib Rapture are impossible-to-defend theories from the pit of hell. Satan doesn't want Believers to be excited and confident about Jesus returning for us at the Rapture. Rather, he wants us scared and worried.

So he has this very small but quite-vocal group of Mid- and Post Tribbers trying to steal our joy.

For instance they harp on the “Last Trump” happening well into the Tribulation—either at the middle or toward the end of the 7 years of horror.

They base their Mid-trib position on these two Pauline verses:

For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 1Thess. 4:16

 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet; for the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. 1Cor. 15:52

And then they tie those two Pauline verses to this verse in Revelation:

but in the days of the voice of the seventh angel (blowing the 7th Trumpet), when he is about to sound, then the mystery of God is finished, as He preached to His servants the prophets. Rev. 10:7

But that’s wrong. The Pauline verses are not referring to the seventh angel in Revelation 10:7. Rather, the last trump Paul was referring to is the last trumpet blown on Rosh Hashanah at the end of the TWO DAY scripturally commanded celebration—which is interestingly consistent with blowing trumpets at the end of the 2 Day / 2000 year Church Age.

Furthermore, as a strict dispensationalist(1) I know that dispensations, by their very nature, don’t/can’t overlap. You can’t have two dispensations going on at the same time. One has to end, then the next one can begin.

Therefore the Tribulation dispensation has to be a separate and distinct time period dealing with the Jews. The Church Age dispensation MUST end before the 7-Year Tribulation dispensation can begin.

One of the clearest evidences for the Rapture before Tribulation is Daniel 9:24-27.

In summary, the Lord ascribes 490 years to the Jews in 444BC. But then it prophesies that their Messiah would be killed after 483 years. The last seven years for the Jews would be pushed out to begin after the Church Age.

So you have:

Jews-483 years / Church Age-roughly 2000 years / Jews/7 years (Tribulation)

The last 7 years of this prophecy is about God dealing with the JEWS. The Church Age is over. Christian Believers have no part of God's wrath in the Tribulation.

Lastly, if the Rapture were at the end of the Tribulation, a Mid- or Post-Trib Rapture would conflict with Jesus’ proclamation that everything would be normal up until the Rapture…buying, selling, building, planting, harvesting, social events, etc. (Matt 24; Luke 17)

With half the world’s population dead from drugs, wars, starvation, lack of electricity and eaten by wild beasts in the first three years of the Tribulation, the world will be in chaos. And by the end of the 7-year Tribulation Isaiah 24:6 says “Few men are left."

So the end of the Tribulation is NOT a normal buy-and-sell time. NOTHING will be normal. Food will be scarce and social events will be nonexistent. Most of the world will be dead from the wrath of God.

And this does not even take into account using the sniff-test: The Lord has told His bride, the Church, that He will “Rescue” her before His wrath is unleashed.

wait for His Son from heaven, whom He raised from the dead, that is Jesus, who rescues us from the wrath to come. 1Thes 1:10

For God has not destined us for wrath, 1Th. 5:9 

So He’s told us in no uncertain terms that Believers living in the Church Age are not going to be the object of His wrath. So does it make sense that He would pre-plan to drag His bride through the mud, the blood, and the beer just before He marries her? Please.

Satan wants you to be fearful of the future. He wants to scare you into submission... so you might do things that are unscriptural. But God says our future is secure, that He’s in control:

 "For I know the plans that I have for you,” declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. Jer. 29:11

So Believers should not have their eyes looking down on earth for the coming Antichrist, or personally worried about the horrible things soon to be unleashed on an unsuspecting world.

Rather, we’re looking up for Jesus Christ to call us from the sky. An incredible event unequaled in history. Like Noah was promised to be spared from God's wrathful worldwide flood, Believers will be spared from God's wrathful worldwide destruction.

Our goal is to learn to trust the accuracy of a literal translation of God’s Word! Don’t let those brain-dead Mid-Tribbers steal your joy of living in and being used by the Lord in these exciting times. Whoops, there I go again, dissing on the Mid-Tribbers. Let me rephrase:

Don’t let those scripturally inaccurate Mid-Tribbers confuse you with their non-Biblical clucking. We'll explain everything to them on the way up. 😇

Scary Trump Campaign Ad

2-minute video


Oh dear, this will make your skin crawl. If the video won't play, here is the script:

If I was the deep state and I wanted to destroy America, I would rig the election with a puppet candidate, one that was so compromised that they would never say a word about it.

I would create a false flag that allows for mail-in ballots. I would be in charge of the ballot-counting machines.

I would create a false flag to blame all who question the results of the election.

If I was the deep state, I would prosecute anyone that went against me. I would sue and prosecute anyone that spoke up about the fraudulent election. I would use my powers to shut down all your internet businesses and bankrupt you.

If I was the deep state, I would make everyone an example why you should never question a Democrat ever winning an election. I would imprison my foes. I would use my corrupt das and blackmail judges to destroy you. I would make sure all crimes I ever committed never happened. I would prosecute my biggest competition. I would make sure they could never run for office ever again.

If I was the deep state, I would convince everyone that Ukraine Nazis were good and women are men.

If I was the deep state, I would own every politician that mattered.

If I was the deep state, I would push my pedophilia ambitions on you.

If I was the deep state, you'd question your sexual identity, but not the medical establishment.

If I was the deep state, you would fear to ever resist me.

If I was the deep state, you would wish I was really the devil.

If I was the deep state, I would say mission accomplished.

John Strand's J6 Story

14-minute video


Watching this gripping first-hand account will really open your eyes. Back in the early 2000s John Strand attended a Steeling the Mind conference in Denver, Colorado.
Some 20 years later John is working for Simone Gold and the Frontline Doctors. They're the group of docs who stood on the Supreme Court steps in the summer of 2020 to protest the FDA forbidding hydroxychloroquine being used as a Covid treatment.
John was asked to accompany Dr. Gold to Washington as security when she was invited to speak January 6. The 14-minute video will explain what happened. And that he inexplicably has been sentenced to 32 months in prison.


Exercise Is Blamed For Increase In Heart Attacks



They're running out of excuses. So many (va((inated) people are dying from heart attacks that they have to come up with a reason, any reason. So now they're blaming exercise. And then, at the end of the article, they encourage more va((inations and mask wearing due to climate change! You can't make this up!!

We know Big Pharma lies. We know that kids in the USA are the sickest kids on the planet. After watching this, chances are you won't want your kids and/or grandkids to stay on that evil "72-va((ine-shots-by-the-age-of-18" schedule.


"You'll Need A Digital Health Certificate To Move Around In Next Pandemic"

An Indonesian official praises global passports and explains how they'll be used in the "next pandemic." If you're va((inated, you can move around. If not, you cannot.

This is leading to a digital prison. And eventually, the QR Code won't be on your phone, but on your hand.


1-minute video

Conservative public interest advocacy group Defending the Republic (DTR) has obtained almost 15,000 pages of Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine clinical trial data, claiming the data show an “utter lack of thoroughness” of the trials and calls the vaccine’s safety into “serious doubt.”

As a result of successful Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) litigation against the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the group recently announced it had obtained—and is releasing—nearly 15,000 pages of documents relating to testing and adverse events associated with “Spikevax,” Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine.

Since 2022, the group has been involved in litigation against the FDA relating to the production of data submitted by Moderna in support of its application to federal regulators for approval of its vaccine.

As a result, the FDA agreed to produce around 24,000 pages of the Moderna records by the end of this year, with the 15,000 pages being the first installment.

The records, some of which relate to adverse events related to the vaccine, include important information related to the safety profile of Spikevax, which was first authorized for emergency use in the United States in December 2020 and in January 2022 received full approval for adults.

“The public can be assured that Spikevax meets the FDA’s high standards for safety, effectiveness and manufacturing quality required of any vaccine approved for use in the United States,” Acting FDA Commissioner Dr. Janet Woodcock said in a statement earlier this year.

But the new data call this view into question. The advocacy group says that the tens of thousands of pages of clinical trial data released by the FDA supports the conclusion that there is “serious doubt” about both the safety of Spikevax and the FDA’s standards for approval.

Neither Moderna nor the FDA immediately responded to a request for comment.


Hmmm... Rev. 13:16-17 comes to mind...for some reason.


Science Magazine Links Autoimmune Disorders To COVID Shots



Mainstream publications and regulatory agencies have buckled to public pressure to admit the COVID-19 vaccine can cause injuries such as myocarditis and pericarditis—but until recently, they’ve published little or nothing about the substantial number of people suffering from autoimmune disease after vaccination. Brace yourself ... if the Rapture doesn't happen soon, the cat will be out of the bag.

Everybody, not just Compass eNews readers, will know why people are dropping dead every day. They're all vaxxed. And that there's no such thing as "Long Covid." That's just a cover for myriads of seemingly unrelated va((ine injuries.


SV40 In Covid Va((ines

2-minute video


In case you missed this last week... this 2-minute video says:

1/3 of va((inated got placebos.

2/3 got moderate side effects.

4% contained cancer-causing SV40, or heart-problem-causing mRNA instructions.

SV40 promotes cancer cells while at the same time suppresses God's designed defenses.

Gold-Backed BRICS Off The Table For Now

Article and Video (Article has the highlights)


If you've been following BRICS, the monetary group wishing to compete with the dollar, this is an interesting read.


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.

Nobel Physics Laureate Speaks Out About "Corruption" Of Climate Science


MONDAY, JUL 24, 2023

Earlier this month, the 2022 Nobel Physics Laureate Dr. John Clauser slammed the “climate emergency” narrative as a “dangerous corruption of science that threatens the world’s economy and the well-being of billions of people.”

Inevitably, the punishments have begun. A talk that Dr. Clauser was due to give to the International Monetary Fund on climate models has been abruptly cancelled, and the page announcing the event removed from the IMF site.

Dr. Clauser was due to speak to the IMF’s Independent Evaluation Office this Thursday under the title: “Let’s talk – How much can we trust IPCC climate predictions?” It would appear that “not a lot” isn’t the politically correct answer.

Clauser is a longstanding critic of climate models and criticized the award of the Physics Nobel in 2021 for work on them. He is not alone, since many feel that climate models are primarily based on mathematics, and a history of failed opinionated climate predictions leave them undeserving of recognition at the highest level of pure science. Not that this opinion is shared by the green activist National Geographic magazine, which ran an article: “How climate models got so accurate they won a Nobel.”

Last week, Clauser observed that misguided climate science has “metastasized into massive shock-journalistic pseudoscience.” This pseudoscience, he continued, has become a scapegoat for a wide variety of other related ills. It has been promoted and extended by similarly misguided business marketing agents, politicians, journalists, government agencies and environmentalists. “In my opinion, there is no real climate crisis,” he added.

Clauser is the latest Nobel physics laureate to dismiss the notion of a climate crisis. Professor Ivar Giaever, a fellow laureate, is the lead signatory of the World Climate Declaration that states there is no climate emergency. It further argues that climate models are “not remotely plausible as global policy tools.” The 1998 winner Professor Robert Laughlin has expressed the view that the climate is “beyond our power to control” and humanity cannot and should not do anything to respond to climate change.

IMF deputy managing director Bo Li: Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs) will be programmable, such that governments will be able to centrally determine what kind of people can use them, and what kind of things people can buy with them, in order to enforce their desired policy objectives.

Every summer, heat waves inevitably hit the United States and other parts of the world, causing climate alarmists and left-leaning media outlets to demand dramatic, disastrous changes to the global energy system. Unfortunately, this summer is no different.
Although certain parts of the United States have undoubtedly experienced strong heat waves this summer, there’s no reason to believe these weather events are evidence that the world is hurtling toward a climate change catastrophe. In fact, the best available evidence suggests that heat waves recorded a century ago were more problematic than anything we’re seeing today.

Although it’s true that some parts of the United States have seen the number of hotter-than-usual days increase over the past 70 years — including in California and the New York metropolitan area, both of which happen to be areas where a large number of media outlets are located — most weather stations have shown no meaningful changes or even declines.

Kids Book On Va((ines

16-minute video for parents and grandparents


We have to undo what the media has been teaching our kids. This is a great book for kids!


The left wants to indoctrinate children with gender ideology to “break down those centers of resistance” because “they don’t like the nuclear family,” Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) told Breitbart News in an exclusive interview in West Palm Beach, Florida.

“Power. It’s also indoctrination — ideological indoctrination. If you get the parents sidelined, then they can fill the kids’ heads with the nonsense they want,” Hawley said last Sunday at the 2023 Turning Point Action Conference. “They can, again, break down those centers of resistance. They don’t like the nuclear family. The left has waged a continuous war on the nuclear family, whether its jobs for American men to provide for their families, whether it’s the parent’s right over education, whether it’s faith, they have continuously assaulted the family.”

In May 2023, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis signed legislation specifically prohibiting financial institutions from denying or canceling services based on political or religious beliefs.

Apparently, Chase Bank is bowing to some other "authority," and perhaps they refuse to cite a specific reason for the cancellation, "for legal reasons," is because they know they're acting unlawfully.

Generational Punishment for Wrongthink

On top of closing the accounts of Rye and his wife, Rye also was told his young children will not be able to open accounts with Chase Bank.

"It's just hard to believe that your family, your wife, your kids can't have a bank account because of the opinions of your employer and they've never done anything wrong. We all have completely clear records," Rye told Florida's Voice.

Yes, but some Big Pharma and FDA execs got paid a lot of money to approve this stuff. So I guess that's part of Biden's plan to improve the economy. And, of course, the BIG GUY gets his share!

None of the mRNA vaccines are made of mRNA

The truth behind RNA-based vaccine technology (Part 1)
Jul 27 2023

For the first time in human history, the gene regulatory program of healthy people has been manipulated on a massive scale.

Despite everything we’ve been told, RNA-based COVID-19 injections were manufactured with modified RNA—not messenger RNA (mRNA).

Modified RNA (modRNA) poses substantial risks to our health.

These risks come not only from COVID-19 injections and boosters but—unless we speak up now—also from all future RNA-based vaccines.

mRNA and modRNA Are Not the Same

The two—mRNA and modRNA—are completely different.

mRNA occurs naturally, lives in our cells for only a short time, and is relatively fragile. It is a specific type of RNA that carries instructions or “messages” from our genes to help make proteins, the building blocks of our cells. It is constantly produced as part of normal cellular processes. Once mRNA delivers the messages, its work is done, and it is broken down in the body.

When RNA from another source enters our cells—virus RNA, for example—these cells can generate virus proteins.

We have been told that COVID-19 injections are made with mRNA. However, a vaccine using “natural” mRNA would not last long enough to initiate an immune response before being destroyed by our immune system.

To make mRNA useful for routine medicine, scientists had to artificially modify mRNA to increase both its efficiency and lifetime. The result: modRNA.

modRNA has been optimized for long life and maximal translation. While mRNA exhibits a cell-specific expression pattern, modRNA can invade nearly every cell type.
