want to take this opportunity to encourage you in the Lord! I too have
come to realize that the appointed times of the Lord are pivotal in our
understanding of the prophetic material in Scriptures! I run
across very few pastors who are in the least knowledgeable about this,
and secondly and more tragic is the fact that few seem interested! I
recently did a two day seminar on What Time is it, God? and those
who heard were quite impressed by the scriptural basis of what was done
and wondered why they had never heard any of this previously. Thank
you for your efforts to alert people to the imminence of our Lord's
return and the difficult times which we'll experience in getting there!
So many are under the erroneous belief that we will somehow be spared
all forms of hardship--especially prevalent here in North America - much
less so in the Far East where I do some teaching of pastors and church
leaders - many of whom know first hand what persecution is at the hands
of religious zealots? May God continue to give you strength and
insight as you research and share the truth which God has placed in his

2 & THE TOWERING STATUE
“Near”… “Far” & “Near Again”
|The ancient Hebrew prophecies have “near”… “far” and “near again” fulfillment. Take for example Nebuchadnezzar’s STATUE of metals in Daniel 2. Daniel interpreted the king’s dream by focusing on the current (near) and future (far) persecuting powers against God’s chosen people—the Jews, and the STONE (Messiah) who would conquer all NATIONS at the end of time (near again). The king was the head of gold—Babylon of Daniel's day. Nebuchadnezzar’s kingdom would be conquered by the chest and arms of silver—the Persians. As the centuries progressed, Persia in turn would collapse to Alexander the Great and the Grecian empire—the belly and thighs of bronze. Rome--the legs of iron would eventually be conquered at the end of time giving way to the final TEN TOES of global powers, who would be overthrown by the Conquering King of kings, Yeshua our Messiah!
From this we learn the STATUE represented a “near” prophecy in Daniel's day that would reach “far” into the future, but would begin to crumble and ultimately fall into a heap of ruins in the "near again" prophecies of the last days.
How do we know Jesus is coming soon? The Daniel 2 prophecy of the IMAGE is coming back to life; and, as prophesied the STATUE is beginning to collapse! The head of gold is modern-day IRAQ. IRAQ was conquered by the West and fell in the Gulf War of 2003-2011. Next will be the Persians—modern-day IRAN. IRAN is the chest and arms that will soon be shattered by the West (2019/2020?).
To follow will be the downfall of modern-day GREECE (and, other parts of EUROPE)--the belly and thighs of bronze by Russian aggression. When? 2020, or soon thereafter. ROME/ITALY’S iron legs are also bound to collapse during the appointed time of the end, giving way to the TEN TOES of global power at the very edge of eternity who will rule one hour with the Antichrist BEAST, while temporarily rules for three and a half years until his demise and the crashing down of the STATUE of nations. "The Beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise its authority for forty-two months [3.5 years]. It opened its mouth to blaspheme God, and to slander His name and His dwelling place and those who live in heaven. 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. All inhabitants of the earth will worship the Beast," Revelation 13:5-8.
Revelation 17:12-14 provides proof of the demise of Daniel's IMAGE: “The TEN HORNS (or, TOES) you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but who for one hour will receive authority as kings along with the Beast. They have one purpose and will give their power and authority to the Beast. They will wage war against the LAMB, but the LAMB (STONE that the builders rejected) will triumph over them because He is LORD of lords and KING of kings.”
Watch world events and consider Daniels image. As IRAQ fell, so IRAN will soon fall. Then GREECE and likely other EUROPEAN nations. ROME/ITALY will also be in the cross-hairs as the appointed time unfolds. Once it falls, we can expect the UNITED NATIONS and BEAST to create a world-wide TEN REGION GLOBAL ALLIANCE at the very edge of eternity that will only cling together a short moment in time to confront the conquering KING with HIS ARMY, who at a distance some may interprete as an Asteroid or Alien invasion. However, if they knew the Bible and listened to His servants the prophets, they would know who they are fighting against.

support Donald Trump's efforts to reduce abortions, to show American
strength on the international stage, to support the nation of Israel, to
fix or nix the Iran deal, and to support the traditional values America
was founded on. However, in light of the fact that Trump's powerful
presidency is identified in Bible prophecy, we must understand how his
decisions will bring America to its knees. He is bound to fulfill the
predictions of Daniel 8:1-8 and Daniel 11:3-4 to confront Iran, and
thereby, defeat and overthrow the Persians; but also, forthwith to
oversee the demise of America as the global superpower after Iran's
decisive defeat, as a nuclear charged World War III likely kills
millions and forever changes the power structures of the world. But,
this is not all on Trump. America is an unrepentant nation whose citizens have for decades
killed over 500,000 babies every year in all 50 states, and today produces
pornography, condones homosexuality and gay marriage, and is morally
corrupt; and, the world at large is still held under Satan's domination and
control. Only the KING of Kings, and LORD of Lords can offer salvation
to a planet of 7.5 million souls groaning under the weight of sin. Yeshua is our only hope. Until that Day, mayhem and crisis
will reign. This is what prophecy has forewarned of thousands of years ago
in the books of Daniel and Revelation.

He answered, "These are the horns that scattered Judah so that no one could raise their head, but these men have come to terrify them and throw down these horns of the nations who lifted up their horn against the land of Judah to scatter its people."

Abraham fell facedown. Then he laughed and said to himself, "Can a
child be born to a hundred-year-old man?" Of course,
Abraham already had a son by Sarah's maidservant Hagar, whose name was Ishmael -- thirteen years old at this time; however, he was not the chosen
one -- rather Ishmael was Abraham's attempt to fulfill God's promise of a
great nation because of his unbelief. As a result, Ishmael's line
(the Arabs) would became Isaac's (the nation of Israel's) arch enemy from
that day forward; and, down through the centuries this bad blood would
cause the great conflicts of the Middle East between Arabs and the Jews
that continue yet today. We can be sure that Ishmael (Arabs) and nephew
Esau (Palestinians) will strike back at his brother Israel (and Jacob) as
the end times begin. At the center of the conflict is Jerusalem and the
Temple Mount, and control of God's chosen Most Holy place.

paperback. Hell is real. Every single day, 150,000 people die on Planet Earth. Is a fiery oven of eternal torment the fate for the vast majority of these lost souls? If so, hell’s population would swell by over a million souls every single week; that’s
around 54,000,000 a year. Even one soul entering a torturous hell should give us pause.
As a Baptist minister’s son, the author was raised by a fire and brimstone preacher. However, by his late teens he wanted to know for himself what the Scriptures taught about God’s fiery punishment of sinners. This book will take you on the journey Kevin took through the Word 40 years ago, where he considered all passages relating to death and God’s judgment. After reviewing the Biblical words, definitions and phrases like “forever, destroyed, death, spirit, cut off, unquenchable fire, torment, burned up, worm will not die, eternal punishment, consumed, ashes, destruction, fire, perish, sleep, mortality, and destruction” he discovered a kind and loving Father, and a future where God will wipe away all tears and every sorrow.

stone harks back to the ancient Roman custom of awarding white
stones to the victors of athletic games. The winner of a contest was
awarded a white stone with his name inscribed on it. This served as
his “ticket” to a special awards banquet. Jesus promises the
overcomers entrance to the eternal victory celebration in heaven.
The “new name” refers to the Holy Spirit’s work of conforming
and transforming the end-time faithful, even in martyrdom, to the
holiness of Christ (see Romans
In the Word of God, our Creator
also reveals Himself with over 200 names
and titles. This brings home the fact that there is no one "who
is like God"; He is indescribable. However, God attempts to
help us know Him more fully with names such as "Advocate,
Almighty, Alpha & Omega, Ancient of Days and Prince of

liquid--"the Rock, Bread of Life and Living Water" and
even animals--the "Lion and the Lamb". All these have

generation of overcomers have God's promise of the final unsealing of prophecy--including a more thorough understanding of final events that
center around the
days and 1,335 days of Daniel 12, which says, "From the
time that the daily [worship]... is abolished [at the Western Wall &
Temple Mount] and the abomination that causes desolation is set up [on the
