Global SITREP A9-15: What Scripture Says


2 February 2015: A lot of what I am about to post has been posted before, but given the lateness of the season of these last days and the fact that I believe many of you already know these things, this will just be a reminder so that some do not get, no pun intended, 'carried away' with what some websites are already posting or will soon be posting.

Just the facts. Just Scripture.

Psalm 90:10 tells us a generation is 70 years, or 80 years if it is a generation of strength.  Does this mean that the Harpazo must occur on a specific date prior to the 70th year since the modern nation of Israel, the prophetic fig tree, was born on a single day, 14 May 1948, in precise fulfillment of Isaiah 66:8?  No one can tell us that with any assurance. Only God our Father knows for sure.

Paul tells us in Romans 25 that "...a partial hardening has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in..."  The emphasis is mine for the obvious reasons. Can any one tell us with any assurance when the last Gentile will have been grafted into the Holy olive tree?  (Read Romans 11:16-24 for the context of this Spiritual truth!) Of course not, only God the Father could possibly know such a thing. That last Gentile could receive his/her salvation in the Blood of the Lamb at any time; only God knows!

However, what I believe we should learn from Romans 11:25 is that once that very last Gentile has been grafted into the Holy olive tree by the Blood of the Lamb, that is the time when the Lord God will turn His undivided attention upon Israel and the Harpazo will certainly occur at that time. Marana'tha!

There is another series of prophetic verses related to this that are found in Ezekiel 39:21-28. These verses are the lead-in to what occurs in Ezekiel 39:29 where Ezekiel, speaking for God says, "I shall have poured out My Spirit on the house of Israel." It is the Battle of Gog/Magog which God will use "So the house of Israel shall know that I AM the LORD their God from that day forward." (Ezekiel 39:22)

This is another powerful clue that the 70th Week prophesied to the prophet Daniel by the angel Gabriel (Daniel 9:24-27) is about to commence. And we all know that the Bride of Christ will not be on this earth during the 70th Week. Those 7 years are reserved for Israel when God will make Israel captive once again, but this time Israel will be a captive of God (Ezekiel 39:25-28).

God is Sovereign, He is Supreme. He is Omnipotent, Omniscient and Omnipresent. The Harpazo will occur when He says; just make sure you're ready at all times for it will come at a point which no one expects.

This post was a good reminder of things I know.
I'll tell you something, perhaps you can relate, I used to get real caught up, pardon the term, real caught up with whether or not we will be here for psalm 83 but not Gog/magog, or perhaps we will be here for both or maybe the calling up will occur prior to Gog/magog AND psalm 83. I used to get caught up in all that. Have you been there?
I don't play those games anymore. He'll come when he comes, tho it'll definitely be prior to the 70th week. I come to believe that he could come tonight or he could come AFTER psalm 83 and Ezekiel 38&39. I'm just going to be ready at all times doing the work of the Lord

hartdawg,

I remember after becoming born again in my late teens (early 1970s) being obsessed with getting to the year 2000 alive and in relatively once piece. Now it's T + 15 years, and it helps to look back on what has been and how I got here from my own perspective.

The Arab-Israeli War of June 1967 was still a pretty recent memory, and the Yom Kippur War of late 1973 has just come to a close; LOOK magazine was doing occasional pictorials of the burned out armor and tank hulks in the Sinai and Golan. It looked like Armageddon was just around the corner. In the midst of all this the US was doing Apollo moon missions; men were walking on the moon. Nothing in Bible prophecy could have been more literal right then and there.

I saw Israel at all-out war; nearly saw what some prophecy teachers at the time were saying might be Ezekiel 38/39 war with the former Soviet Union threatening direct military intervention against Israel when it looked like the IDF would over-run Damascus and Cairo - both were defenseless before the IDF. Nuclear war seemed to be possible in October 1973. Some were even saying Henry Kissinger was the Antichrist. Man had traveled to and fro - this had to be the 'last days' and Jesus was going to come at any moment in the Rapture.

Then I realized that Daniel's words were still not understood; they were still sealed up. So I began to study them intently, and soon realized that they weren't Daniel's words at all... they were the angel Gabriel's words to Daniel. Much had to be studied before unlocking their prophetic mysteries was possible. And there was no Temple on the Mount in Jerusalem. This meant there was still time.

Hindsight now being 20/20, and a full four decades plus a couple years later... and Gabriel's prophetic words are understood clearly. The Revelation of Jesus Christ is now understood clearly because Gabriel's words have become known and are thus "unsealed." In late 1973 I had no idea that as a middle-aged man in 2003 I would be standing dressed in American DCUs (desert combat uniform) near the banks of where four angels are held in the Euphrates of Iraq and know full well what time it truly was in the Spiritual, eschatological sense.

Armed with this knowledge I believe these final years can be faced with the kind of calm and battlefield aloofness that a battle hardened infantry grunt who has been through the thick and thin of war has at his command, and that it that the so-called 'fog of war' ain't so foggy any more. The old grunt can see the final prophetic wars and the Temple on Mount Moriah are now on the very threshold of literal fulfillment.

And we're alert to the fact that the time for the last Gentile is upon us. The Harpazo has never been nearer. We must help our brethren to ensure they have both their lamps and their oil for those lamps; that we're not slumbering and sleeping but wide awake and alert for the sound of the caller announcing His coming for the Bride. (Read: Matthew 25:1-13)

Most importantly, now we know why the day and hour of the Harpazo is unknown to all but the Father. This is so that Satan will not know and act to mess things up. And he will know in that instant of the Harpazo that he has but a short time until it is all over; we can almost hear the angel rattling the chain he will be bound with in the abyss for a thousand years.

I have always been encouraged through the years to "press on" with this qoute from Pilgrim's Progress. Let's finish the race honorably.


"Now when Christian was got up to the top of the hill, there came two men running amain; the
name of the one was Timorous, and of the other Mistrust: to whom Christian said, Sirs,
what’s the matter? you run the wrong way. Timorous answered, that they were going to the
city of Zion, and had got up that difficult place: but, said he, the farther we go, the more
danger we meet with; wherefore we turned, and are going back again.
Yes, said Mistrust, for just before us lie a couple of lions in the way, whether sleeping
or waking we know not; and we could not think, if we came within reach, but they would
presently pull us in pieces.
Christian: Then said Christian, You make me afraid; but whither shall I fly to be safe?
If I go back to mine own country, that is prepared for fire and brimstone, and I shall certainly
perish there; if I can get to the celestial city, I am sure to be in safety there: I must venture.
To go back is nothing but death: to go forward is fear of death, and life everlasting beyond
it: I will yet go forward." John Bunyan

God bless you Sean, for your encouragement in the Lord and His word.
I check your site each day to see what new bit of information you have to offer your readers. In light of the lateness of the day, may God continue to bless you and keep you in His hand.
Your sister in Christ,

Sean,

Wonderful words of great wisdom and so right for this moment. We all know in our Knowers that the time is getting very short and there is much work to be done before HE who shouts us all out, Shouts 'COME UP HERE'.

As I read your comments there was settling in my whole being that surpasses anything that I have ever experienced before. To be sure the Guard is set on my heart, mind and soul to be very vigilant in testing everything by the Holy Spirit and my heart hurts for those people who do not have that comfort. So to be sure, we are going to be seeing, hearing and reading explosive reports and not all of them will be true.

We have a mandate to guard our hearts that nothing of the darkness of the world can enter into it. I am excited and also very serious as these days begin in earnest to draw to a close. Normally I would be trying to lighten up the daily grind but it is no longer necessary to be comical about the most serious times that are upon us in all of creations history.

Gentle as a dove and wise as a serpent comes to mind right now.

Maranatha and
GG5/Shalom

I think I missed something. Sean, what are you warning against that we may read on other websites and blogs? What is GG5 referring to when she ( I'm guessing) said we would be seeing and hearing and reading explosive reports and not all true? Is everyone talking about the great deception in the end times? What are your thought about the bride of Christ being here when the antichrist is revealed, are we here or not in your opinion. Lots of questions. Thanks.

Rhonda,

I am warning against websites that are posting information that is not consistent with Bible prophecy; I am warning about some blatant date setting that is going on;

I am warning and attempting to teach folks to use discernment, to allow the Holy Spirit to lead them, to test, test, and test against what some on the internet are trying to teach.

I do not want to see anyone led astray by false teaching. This has been one of this blog's key themes over the past 5 or 6 years.

I will not be posting links to those websites or otherwise inform anyone about them. The less people know in this case the better.

Rhonda,
I really don't get involved much with what the main stream news media has to say because I know that the truth, for the most part, isn't in them. They are selling information and the only information they have is what the world is telling them.

I am referring to Christian and reports coming in from all over the world on various web sites and broadcasting media. The whole idea that there is a "PRIVATE" interpretation to God's word has already been addressed by the Author of God's Word. So if someone comes saying that they have such an interpretation, shy away from them. If someone has to twist and cause any of us to tingle with excitement in order for us to take them at THEIR word, avoid them.

Yes, God's Holy Spirit can cause us to have great joy and fill us with God's anointing but it should always Glorify HIM and not us. The main thing is to keep God's word foremost in our heart, mind and soul. That, in and of itself, keeps us from following after deception and false doctrines.
If I follow the leading of the Holy Spirit I will have all and more besides to handle all of life's challenges and temptations.
And yes, Rhonda, I do dance in the Holy Spirit's anointing and sing heavenly songs in praises and worship to my wonderful Savior but it is always as a glory to HIM and nothing to me.
I can do all things because HE enables me and I know I would otherwise fall flat on my face and be a total embarrassment to the name of Jesus.
Jesus told his disciples that the spirit of the Antichrist was already at work in the world but in these last days, his work will be so much stronger and deception is at hand now and has been even when Adam and Eve were alone in the Garden.
Delusion comes next but whether it is here now or not, that is something that I will not be a part of. Why, because it comes on those who would not believe the truth. Check it out in 2 Thessalonians 2. Because I do not believe in taking a word here and there to make a point, we should all take that 2nd chapter to heart. But beginning at verse 5 and on to Chapter 3. Verse 11 states it very clearly.

Sean,

Reading this post… and then the comments…

I had a great teenage memory! I had to go to youtube and find the Gaither version of “I’ve never been this homesick before”

LOVE IT! And can’t wait to meet all of you outside of this silly interwebz at HOME!

@ Ken B
To quote the song.."This world has been a wilderness and We long for deliverance."
Great song! It will be a great reunion to see everyone and our Savior face to face.
Even so, come Lord Jesus!
