Four Common Mistakes Made By Bible Prophecy Experts


Book of Revelation
Bible Prophecy, has come to be synonymous with the end times or last days.  Prophecy in the Bible comprises one third of the written word.  The last book of the Bible is the Revelation, and the entire book deals with Bible Prophecy by predicting the Tribulation period that leads to the end of the world.

 Bible Prophecy and The Evangelical’s Community

Christianity Today estimates that one –third of the world’s population is Evangelical Christians. Many Evangelicals follow Bible Prophecy and learn from the teachings of Bible Prophecy experts. Many Bible Prophecy teachers do not realize the task they are undertaking when they connect Bible Prophecy with the latest news and current affairs to show that we are in the end times. As a result there are six common mistakes made by nearly all Bible Prophecy teachers.  

1. Many Bible Prophecy Experts Lack Professional Standards and Methods Held to By Journalists

Where many err is that in their analysis of Bible Prophecy and the latest new, or current events is they do not hold to the standards of journalists or employ any of their methods. They basically make their analysis based on a news headline or even worse adopt the teachings of conspiracy theorists, which is on the lowest rung of junk journalism.. Despite the large numbers of Evangelical Christians worldwide who come from many different ranks of life, and that Bible Prophecy and prophecy in the Bible are main teachings, even in some Christian media outlets journalistic standards are not held. The lack of standards comes through in their erroneous commentary. It is also the reason why Evangelical Christian’s Bible Prophecy Teachers are not taken seriously by anyone with any credentials This was not the case in the Old Testament and at the birth of Christ. The prophets of God were consulted by the kings of Israel and even secular kings. The Biblical wise men were summoned by Herod for their analysis.   
  
2. Bible Prophecy Experts Rely Too Much on Latest News Headlines

There is a good deal of bad information that is taught and believed by Evangelical Christians when it comes to Bible Prophecy and how prophecy in the Bible is being fulfilled.
The greatest area of bad and erroneous material taught by Bible Prophecy experts is in the area of world affairs and their interpretation of the latest news.
Geopolitics is a major study in itself and a Bible Prophecy expert cannot just read a headline to gauge what is happening in world affairs or current events in any one particular area.  

There was a speech given by former Commission President Barroso from which a Reuters journalist wrote an article. I wrote a completely different piece based on statements that this journalist did not find newsworthy.   There are many excellent articles that never make it into the press because the editors discard them as they pick and choose what will be published    This is one issue.. Then there is the news that is misreported, under-reported or not reported at all.  The second reason one does not want to rely on news headlines alone is because anyone in the know of economics, politics, etc. will tell you that by the time a some topics make it in the news: it is old news. There is the percentage of news that is actually breaking news, but it is just a percentage.

This leads to the third error:

3. Bible Prophecy Teachers Twist Scriptures to Conform to the Latest News Headlines

Some rely so heavily on the latest news headlines that they even twist their teachings of prophecy in the Bible to conform to the headlines Right now the major focus of most Bible Prophecy websites is what is happening with Islam and the radical Islamic groups trying to establish a Caliphate such as ISIS.  The Evangelical community  has switched from conspiracy theories to the Caliphate as the Beast of Revelation, which will lead the world to Armageddon.

IS aligns with the description of the end times as predicted by Jesus and the prophet Daniel. Its brutality fulfills the perilous times predicted in II Timothy. Some Bible Prophecy experts have erroneously discerned these events as the Beast of Revelation and are misinforming their readers.

When the shocking actions of radical Islamic groups hit the news,  Bible Prophecy teachers re examined prophecy in the Bible and found the Biblical basis to back up their theory, only there is no real Biblical basis because they are conforming Scripture to the non-fulfilling headline.

Islam is the New Bandwagon for Bible Prophecy Experts, Not Erika Grey’s
  
4. Bible Prophecy Teachers Provide Analysis that Are Geopolitical Impossibilities.
1.       
A larger problem is that what so called Bible Prophecy experts provide as their analysis does not make any geopolitical sense and are geopolitical impossibilities. These violate Political Science 101.

Here is a prime example:

A Bible Prophecy website both teaches the conspiracy theories and also that there was an elected charismatic leader who came on the scene in Greece.  What they didn’t tell you because they do not know is that this leader’s policies have isolated him from the rest of the European Union and his politics appealed to those who are upset in Greece over the austerity measures imposed by the EU Troika.  I read his group’s manifesto and found it odd that they made up political terms that suited their platform and how their platform revolved around their issues.  A good deal of it was anti EU policies and now you have an evangelical expert saying that this leader is poised to lead the EU.  Again, anyone with any knowledge of the EU knows that the EU just had their elections and their next Commission President will not be elected until 2019. They would also know that Alexis Tsipara ran in this recent EU election and lost. Not only did he not even come close, he was a no show during key debates. His platform is too narrow and does not have mass appeal throughout the EU.

This is just one example among many. From here many evangelicals teach conspiracy theories, which do not align with any of the predictions of Bible Prophecy.     I have yet to find in prophecy in the Bible a conspiracy describing how the Antichrist comes to power, rather it is through his own cunning and deceit. Evangelicals love conspiracy theories and in their love of them they have totally lost their credibility. Conspiracy theories have always been the short cut to time consuming research that none of the above neither have the time or are willing to put into the study of the geopolitical landscape they claim they are reporting on that aligns with Bible Prophecy.

THE RESULT ARE THREEFOLD

1.      Bible Prophecy Teachers Are the Biggest Producers of Junk Journalism.

Definition of Junk Journalism:  This is a piece written by someone with the skill to write, and it will have an attention grabbing headline, but the writer does not have any real knowledge of the topic and the topic misleads in the pursuit of page hits. 

2.     The Evangelical Community readership is misinformed and thinks that Bible Prophecy is being fulfilled in areas that it is not being fulfilled and they miss a blessing in so many areas. What is being taught to them are lies, untruths, and they may not be taught intentionally, but in the Spiritual realm that is where they fall.

3.     The self-proclaimed Biblical Watchmen and Prophets lose credibility and look like a bunch of nuts.  It is one thing if we are attacked for our beliefs in the Bible and in God’s son Jesus Christ. But, when we publicly teach nonsense  we hurt the Evangelical Community’s image as a whole, Such as when Harold Camping provided a date for the Rapture, or the article about Alexis Tsipara and I can site so many more examples, but that is the topic for another article.
4.     The erroneous sensational information feeds on people’s emotions and makes the crazy even crazier
I experienced this on my Facebook page when I first started out and was joining Christian groups to get known.  I joined too many at once and the next thing I know I was accused of being a jihadist trying to infiltrate this group.  Others thought that I worked as a spy for the US government trying to gain admission to their community.  As they say there is no such thing as bad publicity because that little episode helped me to get know as folks started to take sides with me. It was a good lesson and it showed me how crazy these folks can be and they are among our ranks.  These folks feed on junk journalism and what is coming mainly from the Bible Prophecy teachers fuels their insane beliefs.  

4. Bible Prophecy Teachers Takes Positions Against All That Fulfills Bible Prophecy.

This leads to the final area that I differ from Bible Prophecy experts or Bible Prophecy teachers. All of these commentators take position against what they describe as the fulfillment of prophecy in the Bible. For instance globalization and world leaders who are globalists are deemed evil. Indirectly Bible Prophecy teachers are telling their reader that they should be against globalization and what is occurring in the world that fulfills Bible Prophecy.  This message comes through very loud and clear.

I differ with the current writers on Bible Prophecy and prophecy in the Bible because I do not speak against what is predicted as all other prophecy experts. This was not the attitude of the prophets concerning any of the prophecies.  We do not even see Jesus judge rather we see him warn as to what the signs are that lead up to the end of the world, i.e. Armageddon.  He warns the Jews living in Israel at that end time to flee when the Abomination of Desolation takes place. He tells them what will take place and they are to run for their lives for from that event then there will be great Tribulation until the end of the world. Bible Prophecy even specifies the number of days from that event.

The examples of the writer’s attitude toward the end time prophecies in the Bible are numerous. The prophet Daniel was taken captive by  Nebuchadnezzar and yet told him his kingdom was established by God and he served him in his kingdom. Daniel predicted the future that would evolve from Babylon and lead to the end of the world. In any of Daniel’s discussions with Nebuchadnezzar we do not hear him make any judgments on Babylon or of Nebuchadnezzar himself. So why do today’s Bible Prophecy experts take it upon themselves to make part of their mission to speak against prophecy in the Bible by speaking against what is predicted?   The task is to tell that it is happening in line with prophecy in the Bible Prophecy.  Is it now over 20 times we read in the New Testament, especially in the book of Matthew, “that it might be fulfilled” every time a prophetic forecast saw fulfillment.  With the 7th Trumpet of Revelation comes the “It is done” proclamation, which is the same phrase Jesus used on the cross when he completed the work of redemption that had been predicted in prophecy in the Bible. We see the same statement at the finale of the end of the world. So if all of this is God’s will why are Bible Prophecy experts writing against what they write as the fulfillment of the forecasts?

Bible Prophecy experts miss Revelation 17 in reference to the Beast of Revelation where it states concerning the Kings, that “God has put in their hearts” to give their kingdom to the Beast.   Bible Prophecy experts also miss the little detail in Revelation 13:15 where it states about the false prophet breathing life into the image of the beast, “he was granted power.”  Who grants the false prophet this power? God. There is only one side we should take in our position and that is the desire of the fulfillment of prophecy in the Bible.  Bible Prophecy experts treat these forecasts as if they usher in God’s judgment rather than that they are part of God’s judgment.
  
The Biblical Magi

This is why I have separated myself from many Bible Prophecy experts and have differentiated myself as a Biblical Magi and am the first to use that term.  Three kings is  legend, the truth is that in the Bible no one knows the exact number of Magi, but they were both Biblical Scholars and understood, astronomy, the politics of their day and they were analysts.  They were not the priests or scribes, but rather from the East and had enough Biblical acumen to know exactly what they were looking for and where.

They were recognized by Herod and he consulted them because at the time there was no living prophet to consult. Their knowledge of Bible Prophecy, or prophecy in the Bible was so keen with one reference to the star and other references in Bible Prophecy they came to the location of Jesus. Jesus Himself mentions sending “wise men” in Matthew 23:34.

Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city:  

Many Bible Prophecy teachers are not modern day Biblical wise men and women.  
This is where Erika Grey differs.  I am a journalist and I do write for secular publications and I interview authorities.  I write on the European Union not only to a secular audience, but also to evangelicals on how what is happening in the EU relates to Bible Prophecy.   Like others I also follow Russia and the United States and the Middle East and Israel. I provide analysis from a geopolitical perspective because if it cannot be fulfilled geopolitically the speculation has to be discarded.   
I offer my readers analysis and commentary that is as accurate as is humanly possible.  It is my opinion that anyone guilty of what I described who insists on their ways should only stick with the signs of the end times and showing that we are in the end times and stay out of the political analysis. Others will hopefully use this information to improve their sites and what they report.   In general Bible prophecy experts butcher the analysis end and provide their reader with inaccurate information. They rely on their emotions and on yours and are blinded to the fact that their reporting on how Bible Prophecy relates to current affairs, world events and the latest news, lacks any standards and only mounts on the pile of junk journalism and lies that are taught in the name of truth.   

In Conclusion:

WHAT ARE THE FOUR COMMON MISTAKES MADE BY BIBLE PROPHECY TEACHERS?

1.Many Bible Prophecy experts lack professional standards and methods held to by journalists.
2,Bible Prophecy experts rely too much on the latest news headlines.
3.Bible Prophecy teachers twist Scriptures to conform to the latest news headlines
4.Bible Prophecy teachers take positions against all that fulfills Bible Prophecy.

HOW DOES ERIKA GREY DIFFER?

Erika uses journalist standards in her fact finding on the European Union and world affairs.
Erika Grey actually writes on the EU in secular publications
Erika Grey does not twist Scripture to conform to her analysis
Erika Grey is the first Bible Prophecy teacher to provide the gaps-areas that we have not arrived at yet that we are awaiting to further evolve in the lead up to the Tribulation
Erika Grey’s analysis are all geopolitical possibilities
Erika Grey takes positions in line with the prophecy in the Bible and not against it.


Erika Grey is a Biblical Magi, This Means She is a Biblical Scholar, a researcher, analyst, and journalist to provide to her reader the most accurate assessment available, which you can find in her books and her soon to be published MAGI REPORT.

Interview with Andrew Duff –Architect of EU Politics



I have an interview scheduled with architect of EU politics: Andrew Duff and you are not going to want to miss the insights into EU policy and glimpses of the EU’s move forward from this EU political heavyweight and behind the scenes chief architect of EU legislation.

I learned of Andrew Duff years ago when the internet was dominated by Delphi and search engines had not yet been introduced. Yes, there was such a time. In that decade you studied the EU in part by reading its official publications that you had to order from Luxembourg. You gleaned insights from policy papers written by its think-tanks and decisions that were recorded in Agence Europe’s daily bulletins.   In that era there was The European newspaper, European Affairs journal and the monthly Crocodile newsletter from the Crocodile Club in the EU Parliament, all of which no longer exist. The European Union was also still called the European Communities.  I learned of The Federal Trust for Education and Research in London, the EU’s leading think-tank and as any student of the evolving EU I ordered the Federal Trust’s publications and policy papers. It was at this time I first came across Andrew Duff who was the Federal Trust’s director from 1993 to 1999.  His name is listed on the back of a report that is still in my library published in 1993. 

After leaving the Federal Trust Andrew Duff served in the EU Parliament for 15 years. It is an unspoken fact that many EU architects have served in the EU parliament, and it becomes a rite of passage for every EU engineer. Three of the European Union’s founding father’s all served as presidents of the European Parliament: Paul Henri Spaak, Aldice de Gasperi, and Robert Schuman. Founding father Alterio Spinelli was a member of the European Commission for 6 years and an MEP for 10 years right up until his death.   As other EU builders and engineers, Andrew Duff too served as a MEP until he was unseated by UKIP the diametrically opposing party to federal European integration.

In 2010 Andrew Duff founded the Spinelli Group named after his mentor. As a fellow EU builder Andrew Duff would help insure the EU would evolve along the same federalist path and this is the purpose of the Spinelli group.   As a European Federalist Andrew Duff is also a leading figure in the EU’s liberal left parties.

Jacques Delors helped catapult the EU from European Communities to European Union with the completion of the single market, the launch of the euro and preparations for the accession of the Eastern bloc nations. He is known as a block buster Commission President and the EU as we know it is “the house that Jacques built.” It was the Federal Trust and the European Movement that spawned Delors, and gave him his ideological platform. Andrew Duff as director would oversee the policy proposals that would arm Delors and others like him with the changes needed to move the European Union forward. While Delors and various former Prime Ministers in the spotlight have garnered EU acclaim, it was Andrew Duff who worked behind the scenes at the Federal Trust, and was no less instrumental in moving the EU forward along the federalist path.  It should be noted that federalism is the ideology on which Jacques Delors’ think-tank Notre Europe is based.

While a MEP Andrew Duff became a participant of the Convention on the Charter of Fundamental Rights  in 1999-2000 and of the constitutional Convention on the Future of Europe from 2002-03. He represented
the European Parliament in the intergovernmental conference, which concluded the Treaty of Lisbon.
In addition to helping to found the Spinelli group, Andrew Duff is also president of the European Union of Federalists and a founding member of the ECFR: European Council on Foreign Relations.

Andrew Duff is currently helping to forge the EU’s future and his projects make history.
He wrote the outline and oversaw the drafting of A Fundamental Law Treaty to amend Lisbon and all previous EU treaties, which will give the EU a full-fledged federal government.  

Andrew Duff is a prolific writer on EU affairs. He has helped edit and author several books on the EU treaties and his latest book is Pandora, Penelope, and Polity: How to Change the European Union. He also writes for several blogs “On Governing Europe” and his blogs are featured by EU think-tanks,  and on the EU’s leading policy website Euractiv. Mr. Duff also contributes articles to the Huffington post and to the Financial Times and his own personal blog.

 In Andrew Duff’s books and commentaries he is a teacher for his peers and professors on the EU treaties, and policy. In his report “On Governing Europe” he writes as a concise EU historian and it is no surprise that he served in the EU parliament as a rapporteur.   Andrew Duff is literally a walking text book of EU law, which comprises of articles. He both refers to articles that are within the treaties as well as offers how future revisions should be written.   It no wonder he is regarded as an EU constitution specialist and a key shaper of the EU’s political dimension.

As many great men, Andrew Duff is a paradox and at the same time his contradictions reveal his strengths.  Although he possesses significant speech impairment he stands before the European Parliament and other groups and publically speaks.  He heads what some might consider a ground-breaking group and movement in Europe and yet he is mild mannered and his peers and foes describe him as a perfect English gentleman. Andrew Duff is a man who lives for his mission and what comes across from his twitter account is not forcefulness for his cause but rather his wit. Andrew Duff’s books do not become best sellers, nor are his articles widely read and yet he is one of the most significant individuals of our times.

When I read in a tweet that Andrew Duff was going to be coming to the USA to speak at a URASMUS sponsored conference here in the United States and that the location of the conference is a 12 minute drive from my residence, I immediately wanted to set up a sit down interview with Andrew Duff. That interview is now arranged for mid February 2015.

Meanwhile, I am excited that of all people coming to the United States is the president of the Union of European Federalists and a key player in the European Movement, which in its early years was funded by our CIA. Americans do not have a clue what is European federalism and neither do many Europeans, which is a good reason for you to read the articles and see the video that will come from my interview with Andrew Duff.


The formation of the European Union is the greatest endeavor of men in our time. The European project is still evolving and when it is completed, the European Union is going to change the course of world events and history.  For this reason you need to check back for when these articles are completed and will be posted on my blog EU vs. US Commentary from the US on blogactiv eu. You will also be able to view the video version on this my new YouTube Channel Eye on The EU, where the EU is in the spotlight. I promise you exclusive information you will not find anywhere else.

Political Positions For Evangelical Christians Re Bible Prophecy




I am out of Jerry Falwell’s school that teaches you stand up and vote for the candidate who is closest to you on the issues and Evangelicals take positions on various political issues. If you are not voting, you need to vote, it is your duty as a citizen. But, and I cannot say but loud enough, that is where it ends.

Within the end time community of Bible Prophecy experts, watchmen, and teachers we have the vilification of all that Bible Prophecy predicts.   The forecasts in Bible Prophecy are mostly negative predictions of doom and gloom and of the emerging final world empire and the Antichrist. The conspiracy theorists sited the New World Order and then vilified it to its students., Geopolitically the New World Order has been replaced by the age of empires. While many vilified the New World Order  they also criticized  globalization, groups such as the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, and  world organizations. Although it was not outwardly stated it was insinuated that Christians should not have anything to do with any of these groups specifically the ones they cited as fulfilling Bible Prophecy.

In Scripture we see the opposite of this vilification regarding the conquering empires that the Lord of Hosts foretold would invade Israel..  Joseph becomes second to Pharaoh in Egypt and this nation would years later would cause the Israelites to suffer cruel and hard bondage. In Genesis 15:13 God foretold to Abraham the enslavement the children of Israel would suffer in a strange land. It was Joseph who was the instrument to bring the children of Israel to Egypt because of the famine. Did God tell Joseph to stay out of Egypt because this nation would brutalize Israel? He in fact brought the children of Israel to Egypt.

Jeremiah the prophet preached of the coming Babylonian invasion and he warned about Nebuchadnezzar who is a forerunner to the Antichrist. One of the Antichrist’s titles is the ‘king of Babylon.” Yet, it was Nebuchadnezzar himself who after the invasion protected Jeremiah and provided for him.

Daniel the prophet was a Babylonian captive.  He was chosen for his good looks and intellect to serve in the Babylonian kingdom. This was not his choice. Daniel was a captive. You will notice in all of Daniel’s conversations with Nebuchadnezzar he treats him with respect and even tells him that he is given his power by God.  Daniel worked for the government of the first empire to judge Israel and is a forerunner of the final world empire. Daniel served in its government.

Despite the Biblical examples many who teach on the end times speak against who and what they are stating fulfills Bible Prophecy. This is not their job!   I discovered that the fulfillment of various prophecies will bring about the fulfillment of other prophecies. I am giving no details here because it is written about in my Magi report and you have to get a copy of the report to learn the details. For this reason I mostly stay neutral on my position and if I come out in favor  of a position it is because it fulfills Bible prophecy.

The Antichrist himself is given his seat by God and is appointed as the rod of his anger. God gives the false prophet the power to breath life into the image of the beast. Let me correct, it is Satan who gives the Antichrist his seat but God who allows that seat.  The events of the Tribulation are all in God’s plan. Why then is it that when end time expositors show that an event is linking up they issue warnings and warn against the powers that are falling into place?   For instance globalists are assailed, world institutions are battered and why?  What is the reason for preaching against globalization when the all of this is in God’s plan?   Bible Prophecy provides the forecasts for the time of the end and we are able to speculate, but we are not to warn folks against any of the signs that are fulfilling the coming end time Bible Prophecies. 

We see Jesus Himself tell of the signs that will lead to the end and He is very specific on those signs.  Concerning the Antichrist he states that one is coming in his own name and him you will accept. He doesn’t even mention him during his abomination of desolation warning. Jesus affirms that when this occurs he warns the Jews to flee because there will be such great tribulation as never before in the history of the world.  In Matthew 24:20 Jesus tells the Tribulation Saints to pray that their flight is not in the winter or on the Sabbath. As they see the signs they are to pray and prepare for their flight. So you see these events are going to happen and Jesus himself does not point fingers at those causing the events, but rather issued warning for when they occur.      

We should be happy when we see geopolitical events fall into place and not try to stop it. We need to remain neutral.  We are in the age of empires- hooray as this lines with the book of Daniel. The Federalists in Europe ultimately want the EU to act as the cornerstone for uniting the world- wow, I am on the side of the federalists and their ideology because it fits with the prophetic forecasts. Should I be writing against them? As a matter of fact I wrote a blog once on an EU policy website and I critiqued a proposed treaty to amend the Lisbon treaty after reading it  so that it would be more federalist and directly in line with the prophetic forecasts. Shame on me.  How could I do such a thing, because I am 100% categorically committed to the fulfilment of the forecasts.  The quicker these events line the sooner we can be out of here in the Rapture.

Where I draw the line is that I would not have any RFID implant because the idea of one and its relation to the Mark of the Beast creeps me out. Also while I know that the US is going to decline and the US dollar is going to lose the world’s reserve currency status I am critical of its foreign policies because I know its future.

As I stated we should still stand on the issues that reflect our beliefs, but geopolitically and in foreign policy we want to be in line as well and make sure we are not fighting against what is predicted to occur.

This may be difficult for you to grasp.  For the conspiracy theorists this would mean you would stop slamming the Masons or groups that you refer to as secret societies. You would be happy they exist. For those who say that Islam is the beast of Revelation you would be pro growth of Islam.  I teach the beast of Revelation is the European Union and I am pro EU empire and pro federalist teachings because this is the will of the living God that the final world power will rise from this geopolitical framework. From here it is Satan that will give his son, the son of Satan himself his political seat. As I watch the EU’s development into the final world empire my heart jumps for joy. I would never get in the way of it, or write against it, I am only here to tell you that it is happening and lining the way that God said it would happen.and that these evetns mean that the Tribulation is coming and if you are not sold out to the Lord Jesus Christ you need to be sold out to the Lord Jesus Christ and if you do not know Him as personal savior you need to know Him now, otherwise you will find yourself in the midst of the judgment of God and all that is about to occur. As I stated  even the Antichrist himself is appointed by God for his purpose.


When the Tribulation Saints realize that they are in the Tribulation their attitude is going to be we are here and it will purely and strictly be about survival.  They are not going to be able to try to fight what is happening, their one focus will be trying to survive it.

We do not have those kind of worries, we are living in difficult perilous times that will lead to the start of the Tribulation and to the Rapture. These times are growing harder to live in.  As we see these signs unfold geopolitically we are not to warn against the events themselves, but warn that they are happening just as the Bible predicts and not take issue against them  rather we are just to point out that they are happening and we should want to see their coming to pass.




Why Christian Martyrs Must Die During the Great Tribulation



Why would God allow Christians to be killed during the Tribulation, when the Tribulation is coming as judgment upon the world. This is the hard to grasp.   Why would God allow the Beast to be both the judge of the world and the persecutor of the church?

   Under the Roman empire Jesus was born and died a Roman execution death. It was the persecution of the church afterwards that caused the church to expand and grow.  During the Tribulation the church will suffer persecution again but this persecution will usher in the second coming of Jesus and the destruction of the earth.  There are two Biblical reasons why Christians being killed during the Tribulation falls in line with Biblical teachings and why God would allow the Tribulation Martyrs to be killed.  For the seventh trumpet and the final woe to occur the believers will need to be gone, why? Because if one righteous person remained on the earth God would not destroy it or more specifically I should say ten..

The book of Daniel tells us that the end occurs when the power of the holy people is crushed. Daniel 12:7 states:
Then I heard the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand to heaven, and swore by Him who lives forever, that it shall be for a time, times, and half a time; and when the power of the holy people has been completely shattered, all these things shall be finished.

It is God’s policy that if one righteous person were left on the earth he would not destroy it.
God created the earth as a place that men and women would have fellowship with Him, when the last person who seeks God is gone the purpose for the earth ends.  This lines with Abraham’s discussion with God that if ten righteous were left in the City would God destroy it and the answer is no.  This was referring to the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. The dialogue that Abraham had with God is in Genesis 18:16-33.  I heard it taught once that when the Rapture occurs the Holy Spirit is taken out of the earth and for this reason the Tribulation could begin because all of the believers are gone.  This is not true because the Spirit is at work during the Tribulation and there are believers during that time.  It is not the Church’s removal that allows the Tribulation to begin It is the church’s removal that ends the dispensation of grace and th is is one event lined with another that I discuss in my Magi report that marks the end of the age of Grace and begins the final dispensation, which is focused on Israel and the Jews.  The significance of the persecution and martyrdom is that when the power of the holy people is crushed the final judgments that culminate in the destruction of the earth can begin. We see this in several passages. Daniel 12 tells us that there are 1290 days from the abomination of desolation until the end. Revelation 11 Tells us that the two witnesses prophesy for 1260 days and after this the third woe and the seventh trumpet is coming.  We also see in Revelation 12 the woman (Israel) protected in the wilderness but her protection is for 1260 days, the same time frame that the two witnesses warn the world. The two witnesses dead bodies lie for three and ahalf days and they resurrect before everyone. This coincides with the three and a half year ministry of Jesus and the timing of his resurrection.  The Antichrist as a false Christ also has a three and a half year reign from the day he establishes his being a deity in the temple.. We see God tell those murdered in Revelation 6:11 “that they should rest a little while longer, until both the number of their fellow servants and their brethren, who would be killed as they were, was completed.” This completion takes place on the 1260th day and within days of this date as the two witnesses resurrect back to heaven. During this time the  Antichrist successfully destroys  the remaining believers. When he successfully murders the remaining believers there will either not be any righteous or there will be under ten righteous walking the earth.. Notice again the number 10 of the 10 days of Tribulation.  If ten are left the seventh seal would not launch or the final woe.

There are 30 days unaccounted for and in these thirty days or within them  because remember Daniel tells us there are 1290 days until the end, within these 30 days, the seventh seal and the final woe occurs, which includes the battle of Armageddon, the sun darkening, the moon turning to blood, the great earthquake which levels every mountain and worldwide tsunamis sink every island. The earth rotates off its axis and the stars fall from the sky and pummel the earth to pieces.  All of this cannot occur with just ten righteous left walking on the earth.

Consistent with Scripture is another teaching.  When God brought judgment onto the nation of Israel, the nations who invaded who God used to judge Israel for its sin were punished as well for their actions against Israel. We see this with the Antichrist and his government. The Antichrist and the false prophet are thrown directly into the lake of fire.

In Revelation we see power in the deaths of the Tribulation Saints, For they overcame him (the devil) by the blood of the lamb and by the word of their testimony and they loved not their lives unto death.  While the Tribulation Saints must die for the final judgments to take place they will have conquered death like Christ and through his blood they  overcome death and defeat Satan who can take their lives but not their souls. When the number is complete of the brethren being killed, and they are completely crushed, and annihilated, the world will finish to be judged and in part on account of their deaths.

Eric Garner Death -More Violence From The Police & Protesters



The Verdict from the  New York City Choke Hold case surprised me along with everyone else who looked at the video,( published by the Guardian) which shows a clear case of police brutality.  Even the UN took notice and issued a statement that the United States needs to deal with this issue. Our police policy got the attention of a world organization, which means that the problem is not only evident to US citizens but to nations of the world.

What is striking in the video is that as Eric Garner is telling the police that he can’t breath and they totally ignore him.  The autopsy ruled the death a homicide and there was no mention if the hyoid bone in Eric Garner’s throat was  fractured, which occurs in one third of all strangulation deaths.  With or without, the police officer’s arm around Eric garner’s neck with all of his force would be enough to strangle the man.   It was obvious Eric Garner was not a threat to the police officers but they were obviously threatened by his size alone to use such excessive force. His crime was that he broke up a fight and possibly sold untaxed   cigarettes.  Tragically, his six children are now fatherless and his wife of 27 years a widow.  A good man has been murdered and to add to the injury the jury did not charge the violent police officer.  There must have been something in the water for that group of individuals not to see that it was clearly a crime. The UN saw it, the rest of the viewing public could see it, but the grand jury missed the obvious.

If an out of control child were to be held in a choke hold the person would be held on child abuse charges. If a woman were to be violated in the same manner it would be labeled domestic violence. But used on a big man and it is restraint? The hold itself taught  in martial arts and the military is intended to reduce air and blood flow and is superior to manual strangulation because of the advantage of  leverage. If you want to kill your victim via strangulation a choke hold is the way to do it  A family man is now murdered by a police officer who walks free.  The officer is a public servant and should be held to a higher standard.

 If this is not the lawlessness that is described in Bible Prophecy that is characteristic of the end times I do not know what is. Since society is already heightened in its anger due to the end times, we now have more riots and protests. This is an issue of police brutality and we are seeing police officers use excessive force in situations in which no force should be used. I recall the mentally ill women who the police officer pounded fist after fist while she lay on the pavement.   The murder of the mentally ill man in Fort Bend Texas who was threatening suicide and when the police got to his home they opened fire on him murdering him because he refused to open the bathroom door he hid behind and would not release the knife he was going to use to harm himself.. 

What is going to end up happening is that people are not going to want to call the police for anything because they will not want their call to end in a homicide. People who have mentally ill family members are going to think twice about phoning the police because their call can end in the death of their loved one. We are going to feel uneasy around police and want to avoid the civil servants who are there to protect us like the plague. Meanwhile with more of these episodes occurring, social unrest will follow. People are reacting violently to the issue of police who use excessive violence. Doubling the issue is that it is used against a black man who the officers deemed a greater threat based not only on his size but the color of his skin.

Meanwhile this family and the world lost a good man to a murderous cop or to a police officer who was so stupid that he thought that he was taking down Goliath with super human strength and abilities and he needed to use a choke hold that would cut off Eric Garner’s air and blood supply because of the disparity of force.  The officer and all of the officer’s in the clip were obviously afraid and acted out of fear and they have no place in law enforcement with that kind of fear that blinds them to the situation at hand and caused them to make foolish judgment calls. The injustice of it is now for all for all to see. Sadly these are the end times and this type of violence was predicted by Jesus that it would be characteristic in the end times. Jesus talked about the coldness and loss of love in the end times. He said that if he does not come back when he does there would be no love left on the earth.

People are enduring the most horrific of life circumstances and they become bitter over them. Eric garner’s lovely family has now firsthand experienced the horrors of living in these end times and its brutality. Sadly Eric garner’s words “I can’t breath” touched many who saw the video. We were left shocked at the coldness of the officers who ignored Eric garner as they thought they were taking down a superhuman Goliath, who they no longer regarded as human and who they felt no empathy towards.  This man who only minutes before used his enormous size to break up a fight when most would have walked away or ignored it.Eric garner used his size for good to put a stop to something bad that was happening and instead of the police giving him the honor he deserved for making their job easier, they ganged up on him, and choke held him to his death.  Something must be done and police who are cowards, because that is exactly what these officers looked like, a bunch of cowards are more apt to use excessive force out of fear and they need to be terminated. 

We are hearing so many stories of those who are suppose to protect us, the Oklahoma officer accused of raping 6 women reported by USA today,  the cannibal cop who wanted to cook the gals he liked, and the list goes on.

The police in the United States now suffer an image problem and people will think twice before calling them or being around them. They will only incite the violence that is not only within them but also within those living in society. This story while focused in the Untied States is one among many that evidences the difficulties faced of living in these end times.
