Where we are Now in Bible Prophecy?: Road Map for now and the Future

Where are we in Bible prophecy? This is a question we have been asked many times since April the 8th, Nissan 1, the beginning of the Biblical new year. With all that has happened recently and is currently happening, let us have some clarity regarding the timeline of Biblical prophecy, where we are now and what is still to come so that we may not be deceived by delving into the Word of God for ourselves instead of believing all that is being said on social media around the world. As you read, discern for yourselves, ask the Holy Spirit and know what it is that you individually and we as the collective body and bride of Yeshua are being called to do.

Birth Pangs, Wars, Famines, Earthquakes, and Natural Disasters

Matthew 24:6-8
You will continually hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end [of the age]. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places. But all these things are merely the beginning of birth pangs [of the intolerable anguish and the time of unprecedented trouble].

We are still in the times of birth pangs, not yet the tribulation. All of these things are just a preview before the real coming of the antichrist and the end of the age. We are in the 11th hour so to speak most definitely, but have not yet arrived to the 12th and final hour, the true end of the age. We are seeing wars, rumors of wars, famines, earthquakes, and natural disasters at a record pace historically, and there are still more to come, but we are meant to be very clear about the time and it is indeed the 11th hour.

What do we see now regarding what Yeshua told us was to be the prelude of the final 7 Year tribulation?

We see Matthew 24:4-5 which is the rise of deception and says, Yeshua answered, “Be careful that no one misleads you [deceiving you and leading you into error]. For many will come in My name [misusing it, and appropriating the strength of the name which belongs to Me], saying, ‘I am the Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed),’ and they will mislead many.” Just take a quick look on Youtube of so many so called prophets (Matthew 7:15, 1 John 4:1) saying that the solar eclipse on Nissan 1 was going to be the fulfillment of Revelation 16:10 which says, “Then the fifth angel poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast, and his kingdom was plunged into darkness; and people gnawed their tongues because of the pain [of their excruciating anguish and severe torment].”

Without any regard for what must first take place in order for this to happen we are being deceived by so many who say these things about where we truly are in the Biblical timeline. And not only regarding Biblical prophecy are we being deceived, but also through the climate crisis (net zero) agenda being used to take our rights through things like ESG scores, as if it will change anything at all seeing as China, by far the number one polluter will not participate, and even if they did it would not change the course of the earth’s climate. Seems nice and we are all for a clean environment, but to use it in such a way as to take away our freedoms is ridiculous. Many things in the world we take as if they are fact because a government, mainstream media, or someone on the internet says it is true, especially if it is said enough times so that you believe it because so many others do. In this new time and season the time to take things as Truth or fact are over, and we must, whether it comes from our pastor, leaders, and ourselves included, check the word and ask the Holy Spirit for confirmation.

Bad Good and Good Bad

Let’s see together whether or not we are seeing 2 Timothy 3:1-4 play out before our very eyes which says, “But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God.”

So are we in the last days and what does that mean? To be in the last days means to be in the run up to, not fully in the tribulation. Today abortion is being called healthcare, many countries have now legalized assisted death (Suicide) for all ages, no matter the reason, things like same sex marriage are not only tolerated but celebrated, and people as young as 4 and 5 years old are now encouraged to change not only the way they think of their gender but to be allowed to decide if they cut of their breasts or penis and become the another gender. It seems we have reached a new height of 2 Timothy 3:1-4 that has not been experienced since the times of Noah and Lot (Luke 17:26-30).

Destruction of the Family

While all of this is happening the divorce rate around the world is at an all time high with roughly half of marriages ending in divorce, and for those parents whether divorced or not who want to ensure their children receive a good education and succeed in the future, many countries now by law can refuse, and are refusing to tell parents when their children are being taught gender fluidity, that being gay, lesbian, transgender or any other of the countless categories of the LGBTQ+ pantheon of what you can “identify” as. And that starts in kindergarten. How does the fallen kingdom of darkness try to kill a generation? Either through war or deceiving many into believing they are not a man or a woman, the beginning of all life through Adam, a man, and Eve, a woman.

The enemy is trying its best to kill the end times generation that will shine brightest amidst the darkness.
The easy access of pornography has been a trap of addiction making men believe there is no need for a woman in the physical, and is killing the motivation for the continuation of new families in the future. If 10 or 20 year ago you thought porn was easily accessible, imagine the accessibility in this generation with most children having a phone and access to the internet at the age of 5 or 6, making it more normal than ever before. This older generation has already been greatly exposed through pornography to inter-family sexual acts of molestation and rape.

This has become far more rampant in this last 20 years, but is a taboo topic that is not usually talked about, but it’s about time if we are to truly have healing and growth within the Body of Yeshua. Many who are reading this have been victims of sexual abuse within their own families, but God is your healer, and all that you have gone through is not to define you but refine you through the new person you have become by the blood of Yeshua and receiving the Holy Spirit. The number of people who have experienced such rape, molestation, deception, and evil are innumerable around the world, but as children of God you have been called to bring out the shame, replace it with the love of the Father and allow others to be transformed according to His likeness as you have.

Lawlessness and Hate

“Because lawlessness is increased, the love of most people will grow cold” (Matthew 24:12). Just with a quick look at the United States for example, in states like California, New York and others it is now no longer legal for the police to arrest someone who steals from a store less than 950 USD worth of merchandise.

Parents, especially in western countries no longer have the rights to know about or keep their children from life altering puberty blocking drugs and gender transition surgeries, and media around the world continues to urgently and persistently push the race division agenda. All we need to look at is Black Lives Matter for that example among many other nations and cultures that do the same, making it nearly impossible without Yeshua to come together in oneness.

Rise of Anti-Semitism and Anti-Israel Rhetoric

Anti semitism is nothing new, and we have seen the persecution and execution of the Jews just for being Jews since the time of Egypt and ever since. However the rise of antisemitism around the world has reached a fever pitch since the Holocaust during Nazi times. Just days ago there were mass celebrations around the world in major cities across Europe, the United States, Latin America and throughout the Middle East when Iran launched hundreds of drones and many types of missiles into Israel.

The U.N. is in a constant state of accusing Israel on the world stage while never condemning even the October 7th attacks that led to the murder of more than 1,000 women, children, and men on that fateful day. From the river to the sea is being chanted in every nation of the world, calling for a “removal of all Jews from Israel, in other words a genocide. We have reached that point, and now Iran has the capability of creating nuclear weapons, and may already have. This wave of anti-semitism is no longer just in one or two parts of the world as it has always been in history, but is now global in nature unlike ever before. This is nothing new as it has been prophesied extensively in Deuteronomy 28, but the salvation of Israel has as well, and it will come to pass (Romans 11:26).

Darkness and Deep Darkness

“For in fact, darkness will cover the earth, and deep darkness will cover the peoples; but the LORD will rise upon you and His glory and brilliance will be seen on you,“Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.” (Isaiah 60:1-3) Darkness will continue to increase, but our call in this moment as we see it becoming so, is to raise up as the sons and daughters of light that the darkness will not overcome (1 John 1:5).

The supposition of many global Christian leaders is that the world will come into a time of great salvation, that the darkest times are behind us, and God’s kingdom will come. But that is not what is written nor what Yeshua said, but simply that the darkness will not overcome the light. All the more reason to be the light and witnesses of Yeshua. Certainly the last great harvest of salvation will come in this time (Joel 2:23, Haggai 2:9), but we should not expect it to be the new heaven and the new earth (Revelation 21:1) or the 1000 year reign of Yeshua before that happens (Revelation 20:4).

The Gospel Reaching the Ends of the Earth

Matthew 24:14 makes us pose a simple but profound question, has the Gospel of Yeshua Ha’Mashiach reached the ends of the earth? This good news of the kingdom [the gospel] will be preached throughout the whole world as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end [of the age] will come. The unreached people of the world that have not heard the Gospel are very very few, and as these last people groups are reached God promises the end of the age. The end of the age being the 7 year tribulation where Satan will be worshiped in the third temple in Jerusalem before the return of Yeshua to the earth as the King of the world (Daniel 7-12, Daniel 9:24-27). But there are many things that mark the time before this comes to pass and without knowing those things we are easily deceived.

Daniel 12:11-13 makes it clear regarding the end times at the run up to the Tribulation which says, From the time that the regular sacrifice [that is, the daily burnt offering] is taken away and the abomination of desolation is set up [ruining the temple for worship of the true God], there will be 1,290 days. How blessed [happy, fortunate, spiritually prosperous] and beloved is he who waits expectantly [enduring without wavering for the period of tribulation] and comes to the 1,335 days!

What is the Abomination of Desolation?

Yeshua tells us in Matthew 24:15-18, “So when you see the abomination of desolation [the appalling sacrilege that astonishes and makes desolate], spoken of by the prophet Daniel, standing in the Holy Place (let the reader understand), then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains [for refuge]. Whoever is on the housetop must not go down to get the things that are in his house [because there will not be enough time]. Whoever is in the field must not turn back to get his coat”.

The point here is that for the satanic sacrifice to take place in the temple in Jerusalem it has to be in the third temple which must first be built for this event to happen, so if we see the third temple built in Jerusalem it is a major marker of the end times season we are in, but does not give us a definitive timeline in which to expect the coming of the mark of the beast, the two witnesses of God, or the time of the return of Yeshua other than the fact that when it is built the anti-Messiah will not be far behind in revealing himself.

Mark of the Beast

“Also he (satan) compels all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead [signifying allegiance to the beast], and that no one will be able to buy or sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name. (Revelation 13:16-17).

“Whoever worships the beast and his image and receives the mark [of the beast] on his forehead or on his hand, he too will [have to] drink of the wine of the wrath of God, mixed undiluted into the cup of His anger; and he will be tormented with fire and brimstone (flaming sulfur) in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb (Christ)”. (Revelation 14:9-10).

This event clearly happens when believers in Yeshua are still on the earth, meaning that there will be a time when we as disciples of Yeshua will need to either be killed for not receiving the mark or run and be both spiritually mature enough in the likeness of Yeshua and physically prepared for either eventuality. The mark of the beast will come when the anti-messiah has already revealed himself and will say to all of the world in no uncertain terms that he is god and in order to worship him requires you getting the mark of the beast. Therefore the temple will already have been built by that time. And this is why we should be spiritually alert regarding the times and the seasons when the third temple is built.

One World Government, One World Currency, One Religion

In his apocalyptic vision in the book of Revelation, the apostle John sees the “beast,” whom we identify as the Antichrist, rising out of the sea having seven heads and ten horns (Revelation 13:1). Comparing this vision to Daniel’s similar one (Daniel 7:16–24), we can conclude that some sort of world governance system will be inaugurated by the beast, the most powerful “horn,” who will “wage war against God’s holy people and . . . conquer them” (Revelation 13:7). The ten-nation confederacy is also seen in the statue of Daniel 2:41–42, where the final world government consists of ten entities represented by the statue’s ten toes. Whoever the ten nations are and however they come to unite, Scripture is clear that the beast will subdue three of them (Daniel 7:8), and the rest will do his bidding.

John describes the ruler of this vast empire as having power and great authority, given to him by Satan himself (Revelation 13:2). This ruler receives worship from “all the world” (Revelation 13:3–4) and will have authority over “every tribe, people, language and nation” (Revelation 13:7). This person will truly be the leader of a one-world government that is recognized as sovereign over all other governments. We see nations today willing to give up some of their sovereignty to combat “climate change”, or to receive a vaccine to return to normal, and it’s easy to imagine that the disasters and plagues described in Revelation 6—11 would create such a monumental crisis that the nations of the world will embrace anything and anyone who promises a solution.

Once entrenched in power, the beast (the Antichrist) and the power behind him (Satan) will move to establish absolute control. In demanding worship, Satan edges toward his goal of being like God (see Isaiah 14:12–14). To truly control people, commerce must be controlled. As we read in Revelation 13:16 it’s clear the entire world will be under one financial system. No doubt the majority of people in the world will receive the mark simply to survive. This new system of commerce will be universal, it will be compulsory, and it will be associated with the worship of the beast (Revelation 13:15). There is a great deal of speculation as to what form this mark will take and how it will be affixed, but the technologies available right now could accomplish it easily.

As it stands, the current world economy is set to be reset, and when looking at the current policies of every world government, digital currency is going to be the future, meaning no more cash and every government able to control what you spend your money on, how long you have to spend it, and if and when you get your paycheck based on your carbon footprint, ESG score, how you vote, etc. READ MORE HERE to learn more about what is coming in the future regarding digital currency based on the Bible’s prophecy about the mark of the beast

All of this clearly leads us to a new one world religion, which will be the worship of satan through the mark of the beast, and the abomination of desolation in the third temple in Jerusalem. This is not to frighten, but to understand these things and the coming persecution are the precursors for the second return of Yeshua.

Artificial Intelligence and the Coming Job Crisis

The use and leveraging of Artificial intelligence has been happening globally for years, but has only recently become mainstream technology, and is becoming smarter every single day. What does that mean for society at large and how does it fit into the Biblical timeline? As far as its effect on society at large it means a lot of jobs being lost as AI can take people’s place with ease and reduce costs for every company and government as well as increase productivity. While it is very useful, its role in taking jobs from people will ultimately lead to many people relying on their governments for everything they and their families need to survive. This would be a perfect storm for those who seek more control and power over what people do, say, and buy with a digitized economy. As far as where that puts us in Bible prophecy, it has the great potential for a time of great deception as the different artificial intelligence platforms have been specifically programmed to discriminate the message that each government and world entity wants it to to influence for better or worse the people that are affected by AI, which is basically every person on the planet as of today.

Artificial intelligence (AI) could replace the equivalent of 300 million full-time jobs, a report by investment bank Goldman Sachs says. It could replace a quarter of work tasks in the US and Europe but may also mean new jobs and a productivity boom. And it could eventually increase the total annual value of goods and services produced globally by 7%. The report also predicts two-thirds of jobs in the U.S. and Europe “are exposed to some degree of AI automation,” and around a quarter of all jobs could be performed by AI entirely.
Researchers from the University of Pennsylvania and OpenAI found some educated white-collar workers earning up to $80,000 a year are the most likely to be affected by workforce automation.

Forbes also says that According to an MIT and Boston University report, AI will replace as many as two million manufacturing workers by 2025. A study by the McKinsey Global Institute reports that by 2030, at least 14% of employees globally could need to change their careers due to digitization, robotics, and AI advancements.
These are huge numbers of people in the hundreds of millions around the world no longer having their jobs, and something to think about and act upon quickly for practical and spiritual reasons. Even people like the WEF (World Economic Forum) who have great sway on the global scene have taken it into their own hands to begin developing a new Bible written by AI that will be what they say is a more modern and up to date moral law that everyone can get behind. Be sure to have a physical Bible handy, because the days of the Word of God being un-compromised online could very well be at an end.

Finally, with all of the news of a coming one world government, currency, and religion, as well as job loss galore, we must see the silver lining which is that we see what is coming. As that is the case such a thing becomes an opportunity not a loss which is why we must pray and act while we can to be the ones that benefit from this great economic reset that is coming and know how to not only to prepare but to flourish by making common sense decisions spiritually and financially, and practically just as Joseph did knowing the great famine was coming to Egypt (Genesis 41:49). If you know it is coming then it is time not just to prepare but prosper as the great transfer of wealth takes place prior to this next global economic reset.

Third Temple and Current News

In a recent post we wrote about the sacrifice of the Red Heifer and its significance regarding the building of the third temple in Jerusalem which you can READ HERE

In short, the possibility of the sacrifice of an unblemished red heifer (cow) on, before, or shortly after this Pesach (Passover) would lead the Orthodox Jewish people to be able to be ritually cleansed of their sins for the first time in nearly 2,000 years and by Biblical Law making it possible for the re-initiation of the daily sacrifices written in the Law of Moses and the rebuilding of the third temple a necessity (Numbers 19). This is needed because until this happens no one will be spiritually purified to be able to initiate the said building of the third temple according to the law.

Although we know the blood of Yeshua has freed us of sin and death the Jewish people at large do not know this yet. For the Jewish people the rebuilding of the third temple means the imminent coming of the Messiah, but for we as believers in Yeshua it means the imminent coming of the anti-messiah before the second coming of Yeshua after the time of tribulation. As we spoke before this has enormous implications regarding the end times Biblical timeline, in other words the hastening of the revealing of the anti-messiah and the world’s greatest deceptions. We haven’t arrived yet, but the clock is ticking quickly, a warning to get ready and become who God has called us to be as the John 17 generation. READ MORE HERE

The Two Witnesses

Another marker to look out for to know when the tribulation has begun, which has not yet happened, is the appearance of what the Bible calls the Two Witnesses who will show up in Jerusalem and be on the earth for the first 3 1/2 years of the 7 year tribulation.
Then there was given to me a measuring rod like a staff; and someone said, “Rise and measure the temple of God and the altar [of incense], and [count] those who worship in it. But leave out the court [of the Gentiles] which is outside the temple and do not measure it, because it has been given to the Gentiles (the nations); and they will trample the holy city for forty-two months (three and one-half years). And I will grant authority to My two witnesses, and they will prophesy for twelve hundred and sixty days (forty-two months; three and one-half years), dressed in sackcloth.”

These [witnesses] are the two olive trees and the two lampstands which stand before the Lord of the earth. And if anyone wants to harm them, fire comes out of their mouth and devours their enemies; so if anyone wants to harm them, he must be killed in this way. These [two witnesses] have the power [from God] to shut up the sky, so that no rain will fall during the days of their prophesying [regarding judgment and salvation]; and they have power over the waters (seas, rivers) to turn them into blood, and to strike the earth with every [kind of] plague, as often as they wish.

When they have finished their testimony and given their evidence, the beast that comes up out of the abyss (bottomless pit) will wage war with them, and overcome them and kill them. And their dead bodies will lie exposed in the open street of the great city (Jerusalem), which in a spiritual sense is called [by the symbolic and allegorical names of] Sodom and Egypt, where also their Lord was crucified. Those from the peoples and tribes and languages and nations look at their dead bodies for three and a half days, and will not allow their dead bodies to be laid in a tomb. And those [non-believers] who live on the earth will gloat over them and rejoice; and they will send gifts [in celebration] to one another, because these two prophets tormented and troubled those who live on the earth.

But after three and a half days, the breath of life from God came into them, and they stood on their feet; and great fear and panic fell on those who were watching them. And the two witnesses heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, “Come up here.” Then they ascended into heaven in the cloud, and their enemies watched them. And in that [very] hour there was a great earthquake, and a tenth of the city fell and was destroyed; seven thousand people were killed in the earthquake, and the rest [who survived] were overcome with terror, and they glorified the God of heaven [as they recognized His awesome power]” (Revelation 11:1-12).

For this to happen the third temple must be built. That does not mean that once it is built that immediately the two witnesses will come, but as we have read what is written, the daily sacrifice will have been re-implemented by the time of their arrival at any time God specifies, but one leads to the other and there’s a knock on effect in what comes next in the Biblical timeline.

Ezekiel 38 War and Ezekiel 37 Now

So why does this war in Israel have everyone so riled up besides the possibility of a major regional war in the Middle East and nuclear warfare in the mix? Because the Bible tells us that there will be a war in Ezekiel 38 that names specific nations in the Middle East that currently match exactly with who will be allied with Israel and who will not and the imminent invasion and temporary occupation of Israel before God brings massive destruction upon Israel’s enemies. The question is though, have we finished with Ezekiel 37? The answer is we are getting there but not quite yet. To understand that point we have to understand Ezekiel 36 which says,

“But you, O mountains of Israel, will put out your branches and bear your fruit to My people Israel; for they will soon come [home]. For, behold, I am for you, and I will turn to you [in favor], and you shall be cultivated and sown. I will multiply people on you, all the house of Israel, [indeed] all of it; the cities shall be inhabited and the ruins will be rebuilt. I will multiply on you man and animal; and they will increase and be fruitful. And I will cause you to be inhabited as you were formerly, and I will do better [things] for you than at your beginning. Then you will know [with great confidence] that I am the Lord. Yes, [O mountains of Israel] I will cause men—My people Israel—to walk on you and take possession of you, so that you will become their inheritance and never again bereave them of children ” (Ezekiel 36:8-12).

With the return of Israel as a nation more than 75 years ago and its repopulation we see Ezekiel 36 has come to pass already. But Ezekiel 37 is where the argument is amongst the body of Yeshua. Has it been fulfilled or not, and if so are we seeing the beginning of the war of Ezekiel 38 that will pit every world power either for or against Israel? In Ezekiel 37 we read about Ezekiel prophesying over the dry bones to come alive, then fitted with muscle and tissue and the new life of the army of Israel. This is commonly known as the end of the Holocaust throughout Europe and the new life being breathed into Israel as a nation once again in 1948. But is Ezekiel 37 finished for Ezekiel 38 to come into play? While the dry bones of the Jewish people have begun to arise with the recent rebirth of Israel, the salvation of Israel has yet to come into play.

The Gospel has entered Israel and people are getting saved, but not in numbers that reflect all Israel being saved. However the fact that the Aliyah movement of immigration back to Israel is picking up steam is a big sign. Should we think it is a small deal when the Bible has more than 700 Scriptures in reference to the Jewish people returning to their land? The last stronghold of Jewish people outside of Israel is the United States at roughly 7.5 million people, nearly the entire population of Israel currently, but interestingly due to so much new persecution from far left leaning liberal groups and a much higher Muslim population in Europe and the United States that openly prefer Israel not to exist, the number is quickly rising of those who are returning to Israel permanently, another sign of the times that we pray will be the salvation of Israel and the Jewish people and the Gospel returning from the ends of the earth.

Major Exposure of Apostles, Pastors and Bishops Around the World

The global body of Messiah has been praying for evil to be exposed within rings of power in every sphere of society and every denomination of the church globally. God has not been idle in answering our prayers and as we have seen throughout the news, social media, and in places we do not see, serious allegations regarding highly respected men of God, artists and celebrities, which have been verified by many first hand sources, are disappointing, but also answers to many people’s prayers that what will be shaken will be shaken and what is left standing will be left standing. Since 2023, the plumb line of God has been raised and the shakings have been intensified in 2024. Respected global ministers have been accused by credible people to have been involved in grooming young boys and girls and being involved in pedophilia for decades. This is not gossip, but serious at the highest levels of those deemed by the world and many believers to be righteous leaders.

We are not declaring condemnation, but rather for prayer for the entire body of Yeshua and to recognize that the remnant of God around the world is being called to stand up, and stand out in the truth and power of God as this shaking occurs. Not only in things such as sexual perversion, but also in false doctrine which deviate from the Word of God are being preached as Truth. We must get into the Word of God ourselves being led and taught by the Holy Spirit so as not to be deceived. The spirit of Ahab and Jezebel are working overtime because God is moving and about to move in ways never seen before meaning that the levels of dividing and trying to conquer the Body of Yeshua is at an all time high. That being said, the mantle of Elijah is being poured out over the world, an authority and commissioning of God to bring justice and salvation globally both on an individual and national level. Sheep and goat nations are being divided as we speak and we are part of seeing our nations become sheep nations in these end times (Matthew 25:31-46). The times we are living in are contentious in nature and the Spirit, but God is calling us to not see in the flesh, but in the Spirit. This is a signal from God that the time of a new level of maturity from the global Ekklesia is at hand and as darkness encroaches, the light shines brighter.

Good News

This is the year 2024, the year of Psalm 24 when gates, doors and portals of the Kingdom of God are being opened throughout the world. Yes, evil things are happening, but our eyes must be on the final outcome and all of those who are still to be saved as well as our own walk and intimacy with God on our way to fulfilling the John 17:22-23 call of Yeshua which says,

“I have given to them the glory and honor which You have given Me, that they may be one, just as We are one; I in them and You in Me, that they may be perfected and completed into one, so that the world may know [without any doubt] that You sent Me, and [that You] have loved them, just as You have loved Me.”

It is not only possible, but will come to pass according to this scripture that we are able to be one with the Father just as Yeshua is, meaning that when Yeshua said “I assure you and most solemnly say to you, anyone who believes in Me [as Savior] will also do the things that I do; and he will do even greater things than these [in extent and outreach], because I am going to the Father” (John 14:12). As we make our way step by step into this reality it involves us coming together as the true Ekklesia of God which means no more “church” as usual.

Ekklesia is Now

“And I say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church; and the gates of Hades (death) will not overpower it [by preventing the resurrection of the Christ]” (Matthew 16:18). A verse we have heard countless times, but to understand it correctly we need to understand there is no such word as “church” in Scripture, the real word is Ekklesia, meaning the government of God or sacred assembly of people set apart for the purposes of God. Similar to the council of God whom God convenes with in heaven (Psalm 85:9-7). In the following verse Mathew 16:19, Yeshua says this which gives us an explicit understanding of that Godly government going to work here on earth as it is in heaven which says, I will give you the keys (authority) of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever you bind [forbid, declare to be improper and unlawful] on earth will have [already] been bound in heaven, and whatever you loose [permit, declare lawful] on earth will have [already] been loosed in heaven.”

We have been given access and to enter into the Kingdom of God not figuratively but in reality so that we may deliver the message which has been and is being delivered in heaven which brings the reality of heaven to earth, just like Yeshua did. So whatever He is declaring over the world, over your nation, and you yourself we have access to receive it, decree it, and watch it come to pass on earth as it is in heaven. Is it Biblical? Acts 2:46-47) says this, “Day after day they met in the temple [area] continuing with one mind, and breaking bread in various private homes. They were eating their meals together with joy and generous hearts, praising God continually, and having favor with all the people. And the Lord kept adding to their number daily those who were being saved.” God is calling us back to the first love of the first Ekklesia when the dinner table was the center of His ministry and the houses of the people of the Body of Yeshua and His table (Psalm 24).

An Ekklesia doesn’t have to be in a building, but anywhere, inside or outside and the numbers of people start with this, “For where two or three are gathered in My name [meeting together as My followers], I am there among them” (Matthew 18:20). Two or three people with no angle other than God’s will be done on earth as it is in heaven gathered together in His name have the power to change the world. This is what is happening in many nations around the world where the angle has become purely His will be done and a chord of three ends cannot be broken easily (Ecclesiastes 4:12) and God is calling us in this moment to become a kingdom family devoid of worldly pursuits.

Kingdom Family and Oneness

The church of the past that has by and large been a business model is dying and fading quickly since the aftermath of COVID-19, but the reality is it will not disappear completely. However, since this shift, God has been speaking about renewing His true intent of family. The enemy is trying to destroy that concept because when we come together as a family the enemy has no power, as the power of the fallen kingdom of darkness comes through unforgiveness, division, hate, fear, worry, pride and sin. But if we come together in the newness of the Holy Spirit seeing we still are not perfect as Yeshua is perfect, but that is where we are going, we can do what family is meant to do, know God’s purpose for our dad, mom, brother and sister, and be a catalyst in doing what we can to bring them into their destinies according to the book God has written for them (Psalm 139:16).

As a kingdom family we worship God in Spirit and Truth (John 4:23-24) and together we are in His presence and the presence of the angelic hosts giving our love and receiving His, and all the while we hear and see together what He is doing and saying. Each of us are a part of the Body of Yeshua (1 Corinthians 12:27) and Yeshua is the head, meaning we need one another, not because we are forced to, but because we truly need one another brought together by the forgiveness of sin and the glue of the Holy Spirit through whom is the only way to become Holy. Righteous we can be through obedience, but Holy is only attained by the help and leading of the Holy Spirit.

“And [His gifts to the Ekklesia were varied and] He Himself appointed some as apostles [special messengers, representatives], some as prophets [who speak a new message from God to the people], some as evangelists [who spread the good news of salvation], and some as pastors and teachers [to shepherd and guide and instruct], and He did this] to fully equip and perfect the saints (God’s people) for works of service, to build up the body of Christ [the Ekklesia]; until we all reach oneness in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God, [growing spiritually] to become a mature believer, reaching to the measure of the fullness of Christ [manifesting His spiritual completeness and exercising our spiritual gifts in unity]. So that we are no longer children [spiritually immature], tossed back and forth [like ships on a stormy sea] and carried about by every wind of [shifting] doctrine, by the cunning and trickery of [unscrupulous] men, by the deceitful scheming of people ready to do anything [for personal profit]. But speaking the truth in love [in all things—both our speech and our lives expressing His truth], let us grow up in all things into Him [following His example] who is the Head—Christ. From Him the whole body [the church, in all its various parts], joined and knitted firmly together by what every joint supplies, when each part is working properly, causes the body to grow and mature, building itself up [b]in [unselfish] love.” (Ephesians 4:11-16).

Pray and ask God what His purpose is for the creation of family, why He brought you into this world and purposely put you with the people He put you with both by blood and by divine appointment. Do you know them according to God’s will for their lives? Do you care? Do you know what God’s plan is for you?

Looks Bad, Tastes Bad, Smells Bad, but Not Your Reality

The time and season has arrived when the inevitable push of God towards being a kingdom family has come. The enemy has always been well organized, far more than the global body of Yeshua, with many rank and file worshippers of satan knowing and doing precisely what their job and role is in the fallen kingdom of darkness. That should not be surprising, but if we look up from our Christian bubble in our church and take a glance we quickly get the picture. The enemies of God love to see when believers in Yeshua are divided and hate one another, and this will increase (Matthew 24:10), but we should not be discouraged but instead encouraged by this as it is a sign that the time of Yeshua’s return is picking up speed. Counterintuitive? No, just Yeshua and our understanding of true forgiveness, loving those who hate us and blessing those who persecute us. This is the only way we will thrive and be unmovable and able to walk through the enemies plans and attacks.

“But I say to you, love [that is, unselfishly seek the best or higher good for] your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may [show yourselves to] be the children of your Father who is in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on those who are evil and on those who are good, and makes the rain fall on the righteous [those who are morally upright] and the unrighteous [the unrepentant, those who oppose Him]. For if you love [only] those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do that? And if you greet only your brothers [wishing them God’s blessing and peace], what more [than others] are you doing? Do not even the Gentiles [who do not know the Lord] do that? You, therefore, will be perfect [growing into spiritual maturity both in mind and character, actively integrating godly values into your daily life], as your heavenly Father is perfect” (Matthew 5:44-48).

This is how we continue being the light in the darkness as a kingdom family understanding and having the true indwelling of the love of the Father which allows us to truly live this out. That is the journey we are on, not just individually but together.

Angelic and Demonic Highways

As the Ekklesias of God begin to come together declaring and decreeing and walking out heaven on earth which is currently happening around the world, angelic highways are being opened as demonic altars of cities, nations, regions, and ethnos are being torn down allowing for the angelic armies of God to have free passage. The people who do not traditionally go to large church congregations and have instead begun gathering in their houses or smaller settings are beginning to come out of the so-called cave of Adulum. This is not to say that people attending regular church service are in any way inferior, but simply that there are Davids coming to the forefront that none of us have heard of and we need to pay close attention. We have witnessed this here at VdD7 in more than 80 nations in houses, groups of believers from many nations together, 2,3, 10, 20 and more altogether having no other reason than God’s kingdom come. It is becoming more frequent around the world and you are being called to move in the oneness of the Holy Spirit to join. It is not a ministry with a name or a movement although many ministries have names, but a time when none of that matters anymore and the sole focus is His kingdom come and lets do as we see the Father do and say what He has said and is saying (John 5:19), and if we believe God is who He says He is then He will take care of all of our needs otherwise (Mattew 6:33).

The enemy knows all of this and seeks to stop it, you, we as the body of Yeshua from coming together as a true kingdom family while actively opening demonic highways in the spirit to stop those who are doing God’s will. As we are not yet perfected in Yeshua, but on the journey, things like anger, hatred, worry, fear, jealousy, lust etc. are how the enemy tries to take us off track, no new tricks. When we see these things and grow in Yeshua we must be aware and understand that we have a choice as to how we will respond, and the enemy cannot take that away from us unless we give them that right. Our feelings and emotions are a choice meaning that even though someone has nailed you to a cross, beaten you, and humiliated you, name your own trauma and current or past situations, your eye stays on the prize, the salvation of those who have done so to you, and so many more just as Yeshua knew and did. Such a love gives the enemy no recourse or right or ability to harm you. This love is only available through God.

Seraphim and Craftsman Nations

As the angelic encounters grow worldwide as the global Ekklesia and bride of Yeshua wake up more and more, God is sending not only angels, but Seraphim to help equip the people of God. Personally this has happened to ourselves multiple times which was both shocking but also incredible. Why Seraphim? This was the question we asked God as well. We have the Holy Spirit, the blood of Yeshua, a relationship with the Father, knowledge of the promises of God, and even our very own guardian angels (Acts 12:13-17), so why the visitation of the Seraphim? Each time the Seraphim shows up the temperature in the room goes up about 10 degrees celsius. As you will recall the Seraphim are the angelic beings that stand guard at the fiery altar of Adonai who touched the lips of Isaiah with a live coal from the altar before the throne of God taking away his sin and iniquity (Isaiah 6:1-8). The blood of Yeshua has cleared us of our sins and we can apply it to iniquities of the past to rid ourselves and families from generational curses, but as we move into healing our nations, we have experienced these seraphim who cry Holy Holy Holy before the throne of God assisting God’s servants just as other angels do, so that should not come as a surprise or even be controversial to the believer that understands how the angelic moves and are helpers of God’s will being done on earth as it is in heaven (Hebrews 1:14).

In lieu of this increased angelic activity, or at least more well perceived than previously, God has been speaking about craftsmen nations, and we don’t mean carpenters and stone masons. Zechariah 1:21 says this, “He (the angel) answered, “These are the horns that scattered Judah so that no one could raise their head, but the craftsmen have come to terrify them and throw down these horns of the nations who lifted up their horns against the land of Judah to scatter its people.” Not only is God calling certain nations to take up this call on behalf of Israel, but also for those places that are often unseen or unheard of in the news, places like Afghanistan, Iran, North Korea with the world’s fastest growing population of believers in spite of the persecution, but also to be aware that God has put certain nations on your heart to intercede on their behalf so that the craftsmen will come to terrify and stop the enemies of those who know Yeshua as Messiah and savior to bring an environment and a Godly atmosphere where salvation thrives and the enemy runs.

The Bride, the Light, and Salvation of Nations

The Bride of Yeshua is being called to prepare itself like no other time in history, and maintaining the status quo is no longer possible as Bible prophecy moves forward. Wells of the Holy Spirit are being uncovered around the world in every region causing the enemy to double down on oppression, causing division, fear, and all of the old tactics. The remnant is being awakened in Northeast and Southeast Asia, in the Americas, Africa, the Middle East, in Europe, etc. as the Bridegroom calls to His bride saying the time is coming and to get ready just as the 5 brides and the parable of the olive oil and the lamps being full enough in the right moment (Matthew 25:1-13).

In order for the bride to arise we must not only understand what it is to be the bride but also children of the Most High God spoken of in Romans 8:19-21 which all of creation is yearning for the moment God’s children come into the fullness of their calling and purpose. That is where we are headed in this moment, and the shofars are being blasted from heaven beckoning us into this new time and season.

What we will see as we continue in obedience and grow to the fullness of the end times generation will be the salvation of nations, but also a major influx of the Gospel of Yeshua and salvation entering Israel. Since the re-founding of Israel the Gospel has been present, but only a very small less than 1% minority. Times are changing however, and as the Bride of Yeshua arises in the nations, the need of the salvation of Israel becomes much more in the spotlight as this will mark the return of Yeshua. A shift in the Spirit has occurred and we are being called to act accordingly. Only being led by the Holy Spirit, Yeshua and the Father are we able to enter into this call with a greater surrender and intimacy, God not ourselves is the only way to successfully move forward. We may not be ready, but if we are willing, the King of glory will make us ready and pave the way. You were born for such a time as this, now it’s time for us, together to say here I am, and let the winds of the Spirit guide the way.
