In this blog, I report on signs of the times indicating the soon return of our Lord Jesus Christ to collect His holy, righteous, and pure Bride. I also provide prophetic revelations and teaching on the topic.

As the Scripture says,

"When it is evening, you say, 'It will be fair weather, for the sky is red.' And in the morning, 'There will be a storm today, for the sky is red and threatening.' Do you know how to discern the appearance of the sky, but cannot discern the signs of the times?" (Mat 16:2-3)

We must not be like the religious leaders of Jesus' day, who could not discern the signs of the times. Instead, we must be like the sons of Issachar spoken of in the Bible, who understood the signs of the times, and knew what their nation should do (1 Chr 12:32).

"But immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. "And then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky with power and great glory. And He will send forth His angels with a great trumpet and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of the sky to the other. Now learn the parable from the fig tree: when its branch has already become tender and puts forth its leaves, you know that summer is near; so, you too, when you see all these things, recognize that He is near, right at the door. (Mat 24:29-33)

Some of the topics covered include the rapture, signs in the sun, moon, and stars, the antichrist, the mark of the beast, persecution, martyrdom, repentance, preparation, the judgment of God, and His wrath upon the wicked.

Do You Want to Know Him?
If you want to know Jesus personally, you can. It all begins when you repent and believe in Jesus.  Do you know what God's Word, the Bible says?

“Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.’” (Mar 1:14b-15).  He preached that we must repent and believe.

Please see my explanation of this in my post called "Do You Want to Know Jesus?"

But He replied to them, "When it is evening, you say, 'It will be fair weather, for the sky is red.' "And in the morning, 'There will be a storm today, for the sky is red and threatening.' Do you know how to discern the appearance of the sky, but cannot discern the signs of the times?
(Mat 16:2-3)

"Now learn the parable from the fig tree: when its branch has already become tender and puts forth its leaves, you know that summer is near; so, you too, when you see all these things, recognize that He is near, right at the door.
(Mat 24:32-33)

If you have not yet put your faith in Christ, I urge you to do that today. He loves you and wants you to know Him.

Do You Want to Know Him?
If you want to know Jesus personally, you can. It all begins when you repent and believe in Jesus.  Do you know what God's Word, the Bible says?

“Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.’” (Mar 1:14b-15).  He preached that we must repent and believe.

Please see my explanation of this in my post called "Do You Want to Know Jesus?"

His ministry is now based in the United States with the same goal of helping fulfill the Great Commission.

Russian Attack on Ukraine Begins WWIII

On February 24, 2022, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered his military forces to attack Ukraine, which they did from multiple directions. They attacked by land, sea, and air from the east through the Dombass region of Ukraine, from the south through Crimea which was annexed to Russian in 2015, and from the north through Belarus, in what was the biggest attack on a European country since WWII.

For those of you who don't realize it yet, this was the event that will ultimately kick off World War III. The United States and other NATO countries did not do anything to stop Putin, who has threatened to use nuclear weapons against anyone who tries to interfere with him. He said his response would be immediate, bringing “Consequences that you have never experienced in your history.” The US and its NATO allies did announce that there would be severe sanctions against Russia for this, but that is not expected to stop Putin. In fact, he has many ways of retaliating against these countries that levy sanctions against Russia.

Russian War Crimes

Intentionally targeting civilian infrastructure is a war crime. According to Amnesty International, Russia is carrying out “indiscriminate attacks on civilian areas and strikes on protected objects such as hospitals.”

Although Russia denied that it is attacking civilian infrastructure, the Ukraine Twitter account says:

"Russia invaded Ukraine. Russian missiles and military are targeting civilian infrastructure and killing innocent people in Ukrainian cities. Russia attacks not only Ukraine; it attacks the whole of Europe. Ukraine defends its own independence, and peace and democracy in Europe."

The Russian military also attacked several civilian airports, including Kyiv-Boryspil International Airport, which I have personally flown in and out of a number of times between 1995 and 2009 (I did my internship in Ukraine, and have been back there a few times since then on missions trips). Many videos have been posted online showing Russian missiles striking civilian infrastructure like apartment buildings, such as the one in Kiev pictured above that was hit by a Russian bomb on February 25, 2022 [Daniel Leal/AFP]. Moreover, Russian forces captured the failed Chernobyl nuclear power plant, north of Kiev, in an apparent symbolic signal to Europe not to interfere militarily in the conflict or else it could face Russian nuclear retaliation. CBN News said credible reports indicate that Russian soldiers are holding hostage the staff of the nuclear power plant.

NATO Response

If you have followed the news at all, you know that NATO has moved thousands of troops to the border of Ukraine to bolster their defense against the war spilling over into Europe. But the fact is that Russia's unprovoked invasion of a sovereign nation has emboldened China to do the same with Taiwan, as evidenced by their recent statements to that effect, and will also embolden the enemies of Israel, such as Iran and Syria. It's just a matter of time for these other countries to go to war as well.

Israeli Implications

Speaking of Israel, they often conduct bombing missions into Syria, which they don't usually admit, but they cannot do so without permission from Syria's ally Russia. Therefore, it is important for Israel to maintain good diplomatic relations with Russia. However, as Russia began their military attack against Ukraine, Russia also made a statement to Israel that it does not honor their claim that the Golan Heights belong to them. Russia says the Golan Heights belong to Syria, (and by the way, major reserves of oil have been discovered on the Golan Heights). This means that as long as Israel continues to claim the Golan Heights as their own rightful territory, it is going to adversely affect Russian-Israeli relations.

Visions and Dreams About WWIII

Numerous Christians have been receiving visions and dreams about World War III for decades. I have compiled the more recent ones into a playlist on Youtube called WWIII. I truly hope you will take time to watch the playlist and prayerfully consider what the Lord showed these people.

You may also read the following articles about other dreams and visions given by the Lord to His servants about a Russian-Chinese military attack against the United States:

Prophetic vision reveals World War III with Russia and China invading America

Henry Gruver Russian Invasion of America

Dumitru Duduman Russian Invasion of America

David Wilkerson Economic Collapse then A Russian Invasion

Putin Obama and Xi Jinping Celebrate Explosion and Plume Cloud

Many of you will not take any of these seriously, but you should. If you take the time to read these visions and dreams, I think you will find that they were genuine ones give by the Holy Spirit. Be careful you don't despise any prophetic dream, vision, or utterance that is truly from the Lord through His servants. As Paul the apostle said: "Do not treat prophecies with contempt but test them all; hold on to what is good, reject every kind of evil." (1Th 5:20-22)

To anyone who does not believe that my warning is from God, take care that what the prophets have said does not happen to you: "'Look, you scoffers, wonder and perish, for I am going to do something in your days that you would never believe, even if someone told you.'" (Act 13:40-41)

These visions and dreams that I have just cited in the previous section agree with the numerous Scriptural passages that speak of these end time wars and rumors of war. The Lord Himself said, "You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come." (Mat 24:6). Other passages you should consider reading and meditating on are Ezekiel 38-39, that many believe speaks of a Russian coalition attack upon Israel in the last days, and Jeremiah 1:13-16 about the boiling cauldron from the north tilted toward Israel.

Chernobyl Means Wormwood
Very interestingly, there is a passage in Revelation about the third trumpet judgment of God to be released on the earth. It says:

"The third angel sounded his trumpet, and a great star, blazing like a torch, fell from the sky on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water— the name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters turned bitter, and many people died from the waters that had become bitter." (Rev 8:10-11)

Many students of the Word, including myself, have speculated that this passage about a great star blazing like a torch could be referring to a nuclear missile that falls from the sky and releases deadly radiation upon the earth. Chernobyl, said to mean "wormwood',  is the name of the town north of Kiev, Ukraine, where a nuclear power plant experienced a cataclysmic reactor meltdown (failure) in 1986 that released radiation across Europe. The fact that Chernobyl means Wormwood is cause for us to pause and consider what is happening now in Ukraine and how it could erupt into nuclear war with Russia.

Comments from Others
Here are some comments from others on Youtube that have also been given dreams of WWIII:

Alexandra Stratan, 12 days ago
"There is something so ominous in the air, to be honest, I had three dreams of foreign invasion (Russia and China), I was a prisoner of war, I have been put through the ringer for my dreams."

ksilas78, 3 weeks ago
"Thank you so much for sharing your dream… I had similar dreams. The first one was in 2009, I know it was about Covid… but fast forwarding to 2013, I had a dream that America was in physical darkness and chaos, I was with one of my sisters, and we couldn’t find water, and as America was in darkness, Russia was about to strike us with missiles. It was like Russia was provoked, and President Obama was begging Putin to hold his fire because America was suffering enough. Now the third dream we were invaded by the Chinese military, I was in New York City in my dream in a clothing store waiting in line to make a purchase, then I got an alert on my phone showing where the closest bomb shelter was, I went out of the store and saw people running and I saw the Chinese military marching in the streets. The last dream I had was in 2019, I saw on a paper in big bold letters with the words saying, 'War is imminent'. I pray that God will protect us all , we are living in serious times."

John Wick. 2 weeks ago
"I had a dream yesterday that we were held in some old buildings with bunk beds. I looked outside and there were Russian troops with tanks. They kept taking people out to this white building where there were Russians. The Americans didn't come back in my dream. I said. 'This can't be real. I have to escape.' Somehow I got captured and then I woke up. I've been feeling like this is a warning from God. I can't stop thinking about this dream. God bless you all get right with your Maker now."

YL Young Luie, 12 days ago
"I had a dream that US was being destroyed by missiles and was a nightmare....I came out of that dream and I entered another, and I was crying, because it was soon to come....REPENT AND SEEK GOD FOR OUR TIME IS NEAR."

Closing Words
I hope that this message has helped to alert you to the signs that are happening all around us right now, which are pointing to the soon return of our Lord Jesus Christ. This is a time for sanctification, separation, and preparation, as the Lord said to one sister in Christ recently. It is not unwise to prepare yourself and family physically, but it is definitely wise to prepare yourself spiritually for what is about to happen. You need the Lord's protection over you.

Jesus Christ is about to come back for His Bride, and not all Christians are going to be taken, but only those who are ready. Many think they are ready but they are not, because they are still worldly and unsanctified. The Lord is coming for a Bride that is pure and blameless without spot or wrinkle (Eph 5:27; 1 Thes 4:16-17; Rev 19:6-9). 

After he removes His Bride from the earth, that is going to kick off the Great Tribulation, which is going to be seven years of hell on earth (Mt 24:21). You don't want to be here for that, so please do whatever it takes to get ready for the rapture. I pray for all the saints reading this that your hearts would be strengthened, so that you would be blameless and holy in the presence of God at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all His holy ones. 

To anyone reading this who is living in compromise of some kind, repent and turn back to God. As the prophet Isaiah said, "Let the wicked forsake their ways and the unrighteous their thoughts. Let them turn to the LORD, and he will have mercy on them, and to our God, for he will freely pardon." (Isa 55:7).

For those of you who don't know Jesus, I urge you to repent and give your life to Jesus Christ. Ask Him to forgive you and accept Him as your Lord and Savior. Please see the link at the end of this article to help you in that decision.

Do You Want to Know Him?
If you want to know Jesus personally, you can. It all begins when you repent and believe in Jesus.  Do you know what God's Word, the Bible says?

“Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.’” (Mar 1:14b-15).  He preached that we must repent and believe.

Please see my explanation of this in my post called "Do You Want to Know Jesus?"

False Prophet Pope Francis Pushing for the Mark of the Beast?

Pope Francis, whom I believe to be the second beast or false prophet spoken of in the thirteenth chapter of the Book of Revelation, has indicated that he believes all people everywhere should get vaccinated for COVID. This is especially creepy for a number of reasons.
First of all, there has never been a vaccine for the common cold, which is also a type of coronavirus. Secondly, the virus that supposedly causes COVID-19 is SARS-COV2, which is related to the SARS virus that was widely transmitted in 2003, and for which no vaccine was ever successfully created. Thirdly, Bill Gates, the head of Microsoft, is among those leading the charge for everyone in the world to get vaccinated for COVID. However, he is a multi-billionaire with a gigantic vested interest in such a global undertaking, since he stands to benefit financially from it (see Bill Gates slated to rake in windfall profits from coronavirus vaccines). He has already wreaked havoc in Asia and Africa with his vaccine projects. Even if you do believe in vaccines and you believe that one could be developed for a coronavirus, which has never been successfully done before, you should know that vaccines normally take years, not months, to develop. They must go through double blind tests and animal trials to ensure they are safe and effective. But with the COVID-19 vaccine, they are ramming it through as fast as possible to come out with it in a matter of months instead of years. In fact, President Trump calls it project Warp Speed. That fact alone should alarm anyone thinking of receiving this vaccine. Moreover, numerous vaccine trials have been suspended due to medical problems occurring among those who have received the vaccine.

But perhaps the most chilling thing of all is that Microsoft has a patent for a quantum dot vaccine, which is a subcutaneous vaccine (rather than the usual intramuscular kind) that injects four microscopic, invisible metal prongs into the skin that contain bio-metric data about the patient. That data can then be read by a smartphone with a special filter that is used to scan the subcutaneous prongs similar to the way scanners are used to scan bar codes on merchandise in retail stores. The subcutaneous prongs are covered with a luminescent substance called Luciferase that gives off a near-infrared glow. The substance called Luciferase has been around for something like a hundred years, but notice how it contains the name of satan, which is Lucifer. The European patent number for this quantum dot vaccine ends with the numbers 60606, which contains the same number 666 that is foretold in Revelation 13 to be the number of the antichrist beast. For more on this vaccine, please see this excellent and very short video.

The Bible says that the mark of the beast, without which you will be unable to buy or sell, is the name of the beast or the number of his name, which is 666. Speaking of the second beast or false prophet, the Bible says:

"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, 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. This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. That number is 666." (Rev 13:16-18)

Therefore, when you consider the big push for a vaccine and what that vaccine will likely entail, and the fact that it is more about controlling people than about truly protecting them from illness, and when you consider the eerie similarities to the mark of the beast, you should understand that what the pope is advocating for is not good. It is potentially evil.

Fourthly, he is also pushing for a one-world government to supersede national sovereignty of every nation. He proposes the United Nations (UN) be that entity.  But he says that the United Nations in its current form is not ready to function in that role until it has first undergone some changes, apparently to give it more teeth.

All of these things are outside the normal religious purview of any pope, which is supposed to be primarily a religious leader. He's not only into combating "global warming" and saving the earth, but now he is also into vaccinations for all people and the New World Order (NWO). No surprises there! Please see this article on Z3 News for more on this. Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano has warned of a movement already underway to transform the Catholic Church into the spiritual arm of the New World Order (see this article).

Fifthly, in 2015 he established an ecumenical, one-world religion for "hope" and "peace", which promotes a global brotherhood with solidarity for common good, as I have previously written about (see here). He advocates the global redistribution of wealth. His new religion blurs the lines in the Bible that make a distinction between good and evil, righteousness and sin. For example, I have already written previously about the fact that Pope Francis Supports Homosexuality and advocates same sex marriage. In fact, he has even gone so far as to endorse same-sex civil unions in a documentary film that premiered in October 2020 (see here).

In all of these things about him that I have just described, he fits the description of the second beat of Revelation 13, which says he has horns like a lamb, but speaks like a dragon (see photo above). Scripture says:

"Then I saw a second beast, coming out of the earth. It had two horns like a lamb, but it spoke like a dragon." (Rev 13:11)

Moreover, he is a Jesuit, which is a militant wing of the Roman Catholic Church. Normally the white pope that you see in the Vatican is controlled by an unseen black pope behind the scenes, who is a Jesuit. But in this case, the white pope is himself a Jesuit already. If you do your research on the Jesuits, you will learn that they have an evil agenda for this world and control much of what happens on a global level through their agents in government and media.

Digital Health Passports
While I don't believe the vaccine alone is necessarily the mark of the beast, since it is not a mark in the right hand or forehead, I do believe it may be an important component of the mark of the beast. The vaccine combined with the new digital health passports coming out in 2021 definitely could become the mark. For those who don't know about these, they are digital vaccine passports that will be required to travel anywhere, by proving the traveler has been vaccinated for COVID. They are seeking to develop a global standard for this passport that will be recognized everywhere on the planet. It just makes sense that this will eventually be embedded in each person's body who receives it. Initially it will be impossible to travel without the passport, but eventually it could become impossible to buy or sell anything without it.

According to Pandemic.News, "Billionaire eugenicist Bill Gates...has been pushing digital 'health passports' for years now. Gates would like to see the same setup at grocery stores, sporting events, and other public places where people gather, requiring them to test 'negative' or take a vaccine before being allowed to shop or recreate."

Closing Words
There is ample evidence that Pope Francis is a false prophet, if not THE false prophet and second beast of Revelation 13, as I truly believe he is. That evidence includes his being a Jesuit, his push for a vaccine for all, as well as a New World Order (NWO), his establishment of an ecumenical, one-world religion for peace, and his unbiblical support for homosexuality. When you consider all the evidence, you should take heed to my warning about him. Beware of that man. Your soul depends on it.

In closing, I would like to share with you a link to a PDF file created by Project Rooftop (see here) that summarizes the characteristics of the vaccine, for which a vaccine passport will soon be required. Both the vaccine and that digital passport are rapidly moving the world toward the mark of the beast. I hope you will share the Project Rooftop document with family and friends. Since it is on Google drive, it will probably be deleted, so it would be wise to save a copy to your device. The full link that you can share with others is:
