Meaningful Scriptures for End Times
For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body, according to the working by which He is able even to subdue all things to Himself.
But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. 3 All who have this hope in him purify themselves, just as He is pure. I John 3:2-3
Jesus Said: Surely I Come Quickly
FOR YET IN A VERY LITTLE WHILE, HE WHO IS COMING WILL COME, AND WILL NOT DELAY. Hebrews 10:37
Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ.
And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. John 14:3
Jesus will come again to take those ready.
So Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation. Hebrews 9:28
Are you eagerly waiting for Jesus to return?
Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day--and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.
II Timothy 4:8
Are you longing for His appearing?
Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man.” Luke 21:36
Escape = Rapture
When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.” Luke 21:28
Time is now very short - Look up!
You also be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand. James 5:7–9
It could be today
“There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea.
August 21 = Eclipse
August 25 = Harvey
I will show wonders in the heavens and on the earth, blood and fire and billows of smoke.
(End Time Volcanoes in 2018)
Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days.Joel 2:29
World Wide Revival may be coming very soon - with the volcanoes -
The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood
before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord.
Solar Eclipse / Lunar Eclipse will be signs
While people are saying, “Peace and safety,” destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. I Thessalonians 5:3
Note: The International Day of Peace had as a major theme "Safety" for the first time on 9-21-2017
Note: The Revelation 12 Sign is called a "Great Sign in Heaven", and it was in the sky on 9-23-2017. It depicted a woman giving birth as the above verse mentions...
But you, brothers and sisters, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief.
For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.
I Thessalonians 5:4,9
The True Church will escape that Day of Wrath = Rapture = and will not be surprised by that day that comes like a thief. They will be ready.
The virgins who were ready went in with him to the wedding banquet. And the door was shut.
After the Rapture comes the Wedding Banquet in Heaven. Those who were not ready will suffer under God's wrath.
But your dead will live; their bodies will rise. You who dwell in the dust,
wake up and shout for joy.
Your dew is like the dew of the morning; the earth will give birth to her dead.
Go, my people, enter your rooms and shut the doors behind you;
Hide yourselves for a little while
until his wrath has passed by.
See, the Lord is coming out of his dwelling to punish the people of the earth for their sins. The earth will disclose the blood shed upon her; she will conceal her slain no longer.
The dead in Christ will rise first then the rapture takes those ready out to be hidden from God's wrath poured out on the earth in the Great Tribulation.
16 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven,with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. 18 Therefore encourage one another with these words.
I Thessalonians 4:16-18
True Believers will meet the Lord in the air as they will be "caught up" at the trumpet call of God. Caught up = Harpatzo #726 in Strongs -
9 The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie, 10 and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. 11 For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie. II Thessalonians 2:9-11
There Will be a Great End Time Deception
maybe relating to the evil one using what people claim are "aliens" or UFOs which will be demons. The New Age are preparing for a Big "Event" as the sudden disappearance of many that they say are obstacles to the big plan. When the rapture happens the evil one will deceive the world as to the reason for it.
A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head. She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth...She gave birth to a son, a male child, who “will rule all the nations with an iron scepter.” And her child was snatched up to God and to his throne.
This sign appeared in the sky on Sept 23rd 2017 which was amazingly complex. Jesus was born King of Kings to ultimately rule. His body is the true church, and the child "snatched up" = harpatzo (raptured) represents the true church being raptured.
Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come on the whole world to test the inhabitants of the earth.
A Promise to the Faithful Church at Philadelphia (and note that the Eagles won the Superbowl in 2018) - Hint ???
Blow the trumpet in Zion;
consecrate a fast;
call a solemn assembly;
gather the people.
Consecrate the congregation;
assemble the elders;
gather the children,
even nursing infants.
Let the bridegroom leave his room,
and the bride her chamber.
The trumpet blows, the Bridegroom leaves to go meet the Bride in the air...
“Do not harm the land or the sea or the trees until we put a seal on the foreheads of the servants of our God.” Then I heard the number of those who were sealed: 144,000 from all the tribes of Israel.
144,000 on earth were sealed before the wrath of God = (in the tribulation)
These (144,000) are those who did not defile themselves with women, for they remained virgins. They follow the Lamb wherever he goes. They were purchased from among mankind and offered as firstfruits to God and the Lamb. Revelation 14:4
These 144,000 are called Firstfruits...It seems clear from Rev. 7 that they are in the tribulation. Why are they called firstfruits? I think because they are the first of those saved after the rapture...
In The Tribulation
9 A third angel followed them and said in a loud voice: “If anyone worships the beast and its image and receives its mark on their forehead or on their hand, 10 they, too, will drink the wine of God’s fury, which has been poured full strength into the cup of his wrath. They will be tormented with burning sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and of the Lamb.
In the tribulation the mark called "666" will destine people to the eternal wrath of God - Don't take the mark -
11 And the smoke of their torment will rise for ever and ever.There will be no rest day or night for those who worship the beast and its image, or for anyone who receives the mark of its name.” 12 This calls for patient endurance on the part of the people of God who keep his commands and remain faithful to Jesus.
The followers of Jesus will need patience during this time of 666 - The present hope of those who hold to the pre-trib position is that these followers of Jesus persecuted in the tribulation will be those saved after the rapture -
Then the dragon was enraged at the woman and went off to wage war against the rest of her offspring—those who keep God’s commands and hold fast their testimony about Jesus.
The dragon's war is waged against Israel (the woman in Revelation 12) and the followers of Jesus. The Scripture is very clear that followers of Jesus will be persecuted in the time of the tribulation. The question is whether these followers of Jesus are the church before the rapture or the newly saved just after the rapture - Only God knows for sure - I believe the rapture is very soon and before the tribulation -
It was given power to wage war against God’s holy people and to conquer them. And it was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation. 8 All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast—all whose names have not been written in the Lamb’s book of life, the Lamb Who was slain from the creation of the world.
The "Beast" with 666 will have temporary power and will "conquer" God's holy people for a temporary time.
It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, 17 so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name. Revelation 13:16-17
The "Beast" will allow No Buying or Selling without the mark.
"They will wage war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will triumph over them because he is Lord of lords and King of kings—and with him will be his called, chosen and faithful followers.”
Jesus is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, He will triumph and be Eternally VICTORIOUS - Glory to the Lamb -
Then I heard what sounded like a great multitude, like the roar of rushing waters and like loud peals of thunder, shouting: “Hallelujah!
For our Lord God Almighty reigns.
Let us rejoice and be glad
and give him glory!
For the wedding of the Lamb has come,
and his bride has made herself ready.
Fine linen, bright and clean,
was given her to wear.”
There will be a "Marriage Supper" in Heaven between The Lamb and His Bride, The True Church. It will be glorious beyond description.
“My beloved speaks and says to me: "Arise, my love, my beautiful one, and come away, for behold, the winter is past; the rain is over and gone. The flowers appear on the earth, the time of singing has come, and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land. The fig tree ripens its figs, and the vines are in blossom; they give forth fragrance. Arise, my love, my beautiful one, and come away.” The Song of Solomon 2:10-13
At the Rapture, the Bridegroom will speak these kind of Words to His Bride, The Church. Come Lord Jesus !
“Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near. -- So you also, when you see all these things, know that it is near—at the doors! Matthew 24:32-33
ripe figs a sign / maybe a summer rapture
10 - My beloved speaks and says to me:
“Arise, my love, my beautiful one,
and come away,
11 - for behold, the winter is past;
the rain is over and gone.
12 - The flowers appear on the earth,
the time of singing[d] has come,
and the voice of the turtledove
is heard in our land.
13 - The fig tree ripens its figs,
and the vines are in blossom;
they give forth fragrance.
Arise, my love, my beautiful one,
and come away.
Song of Solomon 2:10-13
“And afterward, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions. 29 Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days. 30 I will show wonders in the heavens and on the earth, blood and fire and billows of smoke.
Billows of smoke = the volcanoes and fires we have been seen in August
And they sang a new song with these words:
“You are worthy to take the scroll
and break its seals and open it.
For you were slaughtered, and your blood has ransomed people for God
from every tribe and language and people and nation.
(Strongs 103 = song and 103 minutes is the length of the blood moon July 27th, 2018)
Was it a Plan or Was it a Coincidence?
Corono means Crown in Latin -
We have had "birth pains" - and now the baby is about to be born - that will be the rapture - .
Trump / Pence = say it fast = Trumpets
I Thess 4:16-17
The Rapture will come with Trumpets
End Time Signs are now unfolding, and it is very possible that the rapture could be very soon according to David Reagan with Lamb and Lion Ministries. The rapture is a time when The Lord Jesus will come and take His Bride, the true church, home to be with Him. It is also possible that the time period in the Bible known as "The Tribulation" is at hand. Many believe that the rapture will occur before the tribulation.Nathan Jones says, There is reason to hope for a pre-trib rapture. And there is reason to hope for Jesus to return very soon. Others believe that the church will go through part or most of the tribulation and that the rapture will happen in the middle or end of the tribulation. Only God knows for sure. This is NOT the end of the world as the world will be here for at least 1000 years after Christ returns, and Christ will rule the earth for that time period.

The very day that Donald Trump put His hand on the Holy Bible and was sworn in, He was 70 years, 7 months, and 7 days old
In the Hebrew Year 5777
The very day that America voted in the Election on November 8th 2016, that very day, Benjamin Netanyahu (Prime Minister of Israel) had been in power for
7 years, 7 month, and 7 days. - 777 -
In the Hebrew Year 5777
1st full day in office was 4-1-2009
President Trump met face to face with Vladimir Putin (head of Russia) for the first time on 7-7-17, and on that very day,
Putin was 777 months old. - 777-
In the Hebrew Year 5777
President Trump was also born in the very hour of a full blood moon
and the blood moon of January 20th and 21st, 2019 was exactly two years since Trump became president.
And the Great Eclipse 8-21-17 had many very unusual things about it. For one thing, it started in the US in the very minute the sun was going down in Jerusalem and it crossed 7 towns named Salem (short for Jerusalem)
Billy Graham died on the very day that the Jewish people were reading about the death of Moses all over the world- Feb. 21st - Hear his daughter, Ann Graham Lotz, share about that at the funeral. She said the day of Billy Graham's death was God's plan. And He had a purpose for the very day of her dad's death. She said after Moses came Joshua, and Joshua led the children of Israel into the Promised Land soon after the death of Moses. Ann said the equivalent to Joshua is Jesus in the NT (Joshua and Jesus are the same name in Hebrew). She said that she felt impressed that the Lord was saying, "Get Ready Ann, Jesus is Coming, Get Ready Ann, Jesus is Coming.
Strong’s Bible Concordance in 1890 cataloged every root Greek word in the Bible (over 5500 words).
Strongs Greek word 726 is Rapture “harpatzo” - This was the very word used in Revelation 12:5and in I Thess 4:17. The child "caught up" to God is going to be the rapture.
The one day in Jerusalem in 2017 that had 726 daylight minutes was the day of the Revelation 12 sign (sept 23rd 2017). That seems to show that God connected the number 726 to that day of the "Great Sign", not just with the number of days from the Blood Moon (9-28-2015), but also with the number of daylight minutes. Note the link to the right that on September 23rd, 2017 there were 12 hours 6 minutes and 35 seconds of daylight hours in Jerusalem. 12 hours is 720 minutes plus 6 equals 726 daylight minutes. To Me THIS IS PROOF OF GODS PLAN TO POINT TO THE GREAT SIGN AS A RAPTURE SIGN -
Joel 2:31 says the moon will turn to blood before the Day of the Lord !
From the Revelation 12 Sign to the blood moon 7-27-2018 was 307 days– It was seen right over Israel. The Blood Moon on July 27th, 2018 was a Bulls Eye Blood Moon, and the longest blood moon of the century = 103 minutes of totality, and it was seen over Jerusalem and ends at midnight in Jerusalem and it comes on Israel's Valentine Day that is considered a good day for a wedding - Tu B'Av - the day the curse was lifted. It was a day they would dance in fields in borrowed white robes.
Strongs 103 is "To Gather" Agar - (103 minutes of totality-
The Revelation 12 Sign (Sept 23rd, 2017) was interpreted as the “Rapture Sign” because of the context of Revelation 12:5 – like dna – too complex to be coincidence – "The Child Caught up to God" being the church - the Body of Christ - (according to DTS Professor Michael Svigel) - "Caught Up" is the Greek word Harpatzo "Rapture" #726
Blood moons before and after the Revelation 12 Sign pointing to rapture. No Possible Way this could be coincidence. And I do not consider any of these signs to be a way to predict the day of the rapture. Only God knows the day and the hour. But it is very clear that God is giving warning signs to those not ready and comfort to those who are waiting and in love with Jesus.
Jesus said clearly that there would be signs in the sun, moon, and stars – and on earth anguish at the roaring of the sea
The Eclipse 8-21-17 ended in the ocean in the very area where Hurricane Harvey started.
The Eclipse started in the 33rd state (Oregon) and ended at the 33rd parallel (S. Carolina) on the 233rd day of the week. It was 33 days from the Revelation 12 sign. Strongs 33 "Come" which is a command (imperative)="age".
The Eclipse path of totality ended in the ocean in the very area where Harvey started. It was as if the Eclipse struck the match that started Harvey burning. Harvey means "Blazing Iron"
Harvey approached Corpus Christi (Body of Christ) and Victoria county who were told to evacuate (rapture)and afterwards went to Houston where they were not told to evacuate (left behind).
And the eclipse the moment the path of totality hit the US, was the same minute that the sun went down in Jerusalem. The first town it hit was Salem, Oregon (named after Jerusalem), and it hit 7 different towns named Salem. That eclipse was connected to the Revelation 12 sign, to Hurricane Harvey, and to Israel.
And on April 8th, 2024, another eclipse will cross America and make an X with the eclipse from August 21st, 2017. The very point at which they cross is on a little street called, "Salem Road" in Makanda Illinois.
Salem means PEACE -
Diplomacy began August 22nd 2017 for the "Vision For Peace"...also called the "Deal of the Century"...that was the day after the Eclipse.
The complexity of the Revelation 12 sign is beyond question when everything is considered – including the conception comet (see youtube) and all the other components.
And one thing for sure – Jesus is Lord! and it seems very clear that the tribulation is at hand and we very well may go through part of it.
Only God knows for sure. But I expect and hope for a pre-trib rapture soon. God is good!
Strongs numbers / Blood moons / and The Feast of Tabernacles in 2017 are also interesting: (The Final Feast of the Biblical / Religious Jewish Calendar)
Strongs has some interesting points in my opinion:
From the Last blood moon, Sept 28th, 2015 to October 4th, 2017 - 737 days - Strongs 737 Greek word is Arti "Now", and to October 5th is Ari = Lion
(The Lion of the Tribe of Judah)
Note that October 4th, 2017 at sundown was the beginning of the Feast of Tabernacles whereas October 5th is the first full day of the Feast of Tabernacles.
From the super blood moon on Sept 28th, 2015 to October 12th, 2017 (the Shmini Atzeret = the last and great 8th day of the Feast of Tabernacles) - according to Hebcal - is 745 days -
Strongs 745 is a name in Greek "Archelaos" that means
And 745 Strongs Hebrew word is Aryeh, a name that is also related to Lion.
So Lion comes up twice -
Once calculating to the beginning of the Feast of Tabernacles and again calculating at the end of the Feast of Tabernacles.
And if the end date is included in the calculation, then we would get 746 and as Gary has pointed out in unsealed.org article (Shmini Atzeret), we would get arche, "Beginning". God is good!
From the First Blood Moon in the Blood Moon Tetrad, April 15th, 2014 to October 12th, 2017 (the Shemini Atzeret - 8th and Great day of the Feast of Tabernacles according to Heb Cal)is 1276 days
And Strongs 1276 Greek word is
And if we include the end date or go to Gary's October 13th date would be
And Strongs 1277 Greek word is diapleo
- "To Sail Across" -
And From the Fist Blood Moon (April 15th, 2014 to October 4th, 2017) is 1268 days, and
Strongs 1268 Greek Word is dianemo
- "Divide into Portions -
October 4th, 2017 Sundown is the actual beginning of the Feast of Tabernacles.
Now only God knows the Day and the Hour. This is just observations, (not predictions), and in my opinion it is possibly very significant as signs even as
Jesus clearly said,
There will be signs in the sun, moon, and stars...
And if God intended those words to come up in Strongs, then some possible interpretations could be:
The time is now - Time for the Lion of the Tribe of Judah - Time for the People who will rule - Time to cross over - Time for those ready to sail across - Time for the Lord to divide those saved and those unsaved - Time for a New Beginning for the saved - Time for the Beginning of Tribulation for those Left Behind -
The fulfillment of the rapture is in the time of The Father's Heart. Only God knows for sure. I believe God gave these signs as His promise that the rapture will come, and it will be soon. Just as God promised to Abraham that he would have a son through Sarah, God is promising that the rapture will come soon.
