Ex 27:20-28:12 2 Ki 24 Ps 148 Jn 20 (Heb 5)
No Telling What We Will Face by Dr. Raymond Finney
PREFACE: I use, with permission and minor editing, a recent article, “No Telling What We Will Face,” by Daymond Duck. Daymond is a prolific writer about the last days (https://www.raptureready.com/daymond-duck/). He is a graduate of the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, class of 1962. Reference this article at:
We live in perilous times– times about which Yeshua and the Apostle Paul warned. More examples could be added to Daymond’s brief forecast of our future. (Notice the open-ended title to this article: “No Telling What….”) Prophecy students emphasize that we are witnessing two features of the last days: (1) acceleration– prophecies are being fulfilled at breakneck speed, and (2) convergence– prophecies are being focused toward a single momentous event; that event is when Yeshua parts the sky, the trumpet of God sounds, and the archangel commands, “Come up here!” The One giving testimony to these things says, “Yes! I am coming soon!” Amen! Come, Lord Yeshua! (Revelation 22:20).
In reading Daymond’s article, think of other examples of our failing society he did not include and what you need to do to protect and prepare your family (1 Timothy 5:8): But if anyone does not provide for his own, especially those in his own house, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.
In my opinion, we need to think mainly of ourselves, our family and our neighbors, as America appears to be lost to Satan and we, as individuals, have, thus far, also appear to be powerless to change the direction of our government and society at large. We in the faith community– [Adonai’s] people, over whom [His] Name is called– have ignored 2 Chronicles 7:14. The title of this article is correct– no telling what we will face in the future! The guest article follows:

As I have gone from place to place speaking and teaching on Bible prophecy, I have often said, if the Rapture does not happen soon, there is no telling what our nation and God’s people will face.
No ordinary person could have imagined the things that people are seeing and doing now. Some of it is demonic, to say the very least, and if these are birth pains, things will get worse and there is no telling what our nation and God’s people will face in the near future.
The globalists have big plans, but they are not in control; they just think they are. The more they reject God’s influence over the U.S. and turn against His people, the more they fulfill Bible prophecy and stir His wrath.
Make no mistake about it; fake news, fake elections, fake climate change science, fake Coronavirus science, fake documents in the Department of Justice, fake values, and integrity in Washington DC and America’s courts, etc., are not of God.
He is truth, we are living in prophetic times, and here are several more reasons for believing that:
ONE, the Bible says God created man in His own image; male and female created He them (Genesis 1:26-27).
Biden promised to remove America’s recognition of just two sexes on day one of his administration.
Pelosi has already tried to do this by rejecting the use of father, mother, son and daughter in the House of Representatives.
This is more serious than catering to the LGBTQ agenda. It is a clear rejection of the Word of God and a mistake to think that America can deliberately cast aside the Scriptures without consequences.
TWO, on January 13, 2021, the U.S. House of Representatives impeached President Trump for a second time.
This time, Democrats accused him of “incitement of insurrection” over the protests at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021.
They said he “repeatedly issued false statements asserting that the presidential election results were fraudulent and should not be accepted.”
It is now up to the U.S. Senate to approve or reject this impeachment.
Trump said his impeachment is “a continuation of the greatest and most vicious witch hunt in the history of our country and is causing tremendous anger, and division and pain… which is very dangerous for the USA, especially at this very tender time.”
If the rioting, looting and arson of Antifa and BLM were constitutionally protected free speech, why wasn’t the attack at the Capitol constitutionally protected free speech?
The answer is neither one is constitutionally protected free speech, and the problem is the character and motives of the people that are making the decisions.
According to the Bible, the Antichrist will ignore truth and opt for deceit (Daniel 8:12).
This spirit of antichrist (lying, half-truth, misinformation, and political spin) is very active in Washington D.C. today.
It is easy to see why the lost will believe lies and rejoice in unrighteousness during the Tribulation (2 Thessalonians 2:11-12).
THREE, it has been reported that 80 municipal and criminal charges, including fines of more than $15,000 a day, have been filed against the co-owners of Atilis Gym in New Jersey while they are fighting the state in court over the lockdown of their business under the guise of stopping the spread of COVID.
Sometime during the night of January 13-14, 2021, without warning or permission, New Jersey officials seized the funds that Atilis had in its bank account.
There have been reports that the seizure of funds by government officials (and by banks in financial trouble) is going to become more common as the urge to redistribute wealth grows and America’s financial situation worsens.
FOUR, concerning persecution: on January. 14, 2021, it was reported that Bishop Joseph Strickland said on his television program that Christians “need to be ready for a new age of martyrdom… in order to be faithful to Jesus Christ.”
The Bishop added that if it comes to that, Christians “can’t deny the truth, and we should resist.”
FIVE, also, concerning persecution: on January 12, 2021, Project Veritas released a video of a Public Broadcasting System (PBS) attorney suggesting that the children of Trump Voters should be put in re-education camps. PBS fired the attorney and disavowed what he said.
SIX, on January 11, 2021, GoDaddy [GoDaddy = Internet hosting company] shut down the Website of www.AR15.com, the largest gun Website in the world, without giving a reason.
AR15.com has found another host and expects to be back online in a matter of days.
It is important to understand that globalists want to disarm America, to control those that might fight against the surrender of U.S. sovereignty.
SEVEN, Biden’s support for world government, to open the U.S. border with Mexico, to provide a pathway to citizenship for more than 11 million immigrants, to declare a moratorium on immigrant deportations, to provide free healthcare to immigrants, etc. has already led to a caravan of thousands of immigrants (many with COVID) with plans to enter the U.S. and predictions that there will be waves of caravans in the future.
Biden officials say it will take a few months to put some of these policies into effect, but he plans to go through with them.
EIGHT, the Bible teaches that Israel will be a prosperous nation with silver and gold, cattle and goods in the latter years and latter days (Ezekiel, chapter 38).
On January 14, 2021, it was reported that three international credit rating agencies (Fitch, S&P, and Moody’s) have given Israel an “A+” credit rating despite the problems caused by COVID.
NINE, concerning the Battle of Gog and Magog (Ezekiel, chapters 38-39) in the latter years and latter days:
● On January 13, 2021, it was reported that 18 Israeli strikes on Iranian targets in Syria killed 57 people (14 Syrian fighters, 16 Iraqi fighters, 11 Afghan fighters and 16 fighters of unknown nationality). Israel has been striking enemy targets in Syria for years, but this is the largest death toll in one series of strikes.
● On January 14, 2021, it was reported that the Israeli Defense Forces Homefront Command has released a video urging citizens to keep a radio in their personal bomb shelters in case there is a power outage or the Internet goes down in Israel.
● In early January 2021, Iran announced that it had restarted its program of enriching uranium to 20%, bringing the nation just a step away from 90% enrichment and the possibility of producing nuclear weapons.
● On January 14, 2021, it was reported that the IDF is working on 3 ways to stop Iran’s nuclear program, and one is a military attack. One Israeli official suggested that Israel might launch a military strike if the Biden administration rejoins the deal the Obama-Biden administration made with Iran.
● If there is a full-fledged attack on Israel by the nations mentioned in Ezekiel, chapters 38 and 39, people should know that the Bible clearly says this prophecy will be fulfilled in the latter years and latter days.
TEN, Big Tech’s suppression of free speech in the U.S. has drawn the criticism of leaders in several nations.
If Big Tech gets away with silencing the President of the U.S., they can probably silence any other leader on earth and get away with it.
If Big Tech can influence the results of the U.S. election, they can influence the results of any election.
The purpose of the Mark of the Beast is to shut down opposition to the government of Antichrist.
Big Tech has:
● Designated itself as the free speech police of the world.
● Given itself the power to decide who should rule nations.
● Tried to squash the publication of Hunter Biden’s crimes against the U.S. and Joe Biden’s involvement in Hunter’s crimes.
● Tried to take away the free speech of almost 75-million U.S. citizens.
● Threatened to de-platform companies that allow almost 75-million U.S. citizens to speak freely.
● Twitter’s Jack Dorsey (perhaps under the influence of the shadow government) has been videoed saying the censorship of millions of U.S. citizens has just begun.
● During the Tribulation, people will be forced to support the government of the Antichrist or they will be killed (a satanic silencing of opposition).
FYI: Officials at www.parler.com believe their Website will be fully operational by the end of January.
One way that readers can express their dislike of censorship is to switch from Apple, Amazon, Google, etc., to Parler as soon as the site gets back up.
Christians, conservatives, and others need to use and support websites that won’t censor them and try to control our elections.
ELEVEN, concerning deceit, false accusations and lying at the end of the age: on January 14, 2021, it was reported that James Earle Sullivan, founder of a group called Insurgence USA, has been arrested and will appear in court on that day.
Sullivan has admitted that he entered the Capitol building through a smashed window and incited violence.
He videoed his activities, posted the video and recorded himself saying he is a supporter of Black Lives Matter.
Despite this recorded evidence, some politicians and media say only Trump supporters were involved in the protests at the Capitol building.
TWELVE, on January 14, 2021, it was reported that the 34-year-old son of a New York judge has been arrested for being in the Capitol protests.
He is a registered Democrat, was wearing fur, a stolen police vest, and carrying a large stick in pictures that were taken at the Capitol.
THIRTEEN, concerning a global economic collapse that will happen after the Rapture: Biden has announced plans for a 1.9 trillion-dollar Coronavirus stimulus package and a $15 per hour minimum wage.
If I am not mistaken, the U.S. has spent about 6 trillion dollars on stimulus packages, and many of America’s enemies are counting on this spending to trigger the collapse of the U.S. economy.
More than 100,000 small businesses have permanently closed due to COVID, thousands more are near bankruptcy, and some pundits are saying Biden’s minimum wage increase will up the cost of doing business, cause more businesses to fail, and increase unemployment.
Some say as America goes, so goes the world.
FOURTEEN, concerning the decline of America and the rise of Israel at the end of the age: on January 14, 2021, it was reported that an influential rabbi in Israel is warning that America is more divided than most people realize.
The rabbi said the Democrats are replacing the values of justice with the values of political correctness, it is causing division, and it will trigger the fall of America. He said, “This is a sad moment, but it will happen.” He added that this is part of God’s plan for Israel, and he urged Israel’s leaders to prepare for its role of leadership in the world.
FIFTEEN, on January 18, 2021, it was reported that Israel still intends to name the soon to be built train station at the Temple Mount the “Donald J. Trump Station.” A group of rabbis said the new train station will serve the Third Temple, and the connection of Trump to a rebuilt Temple is not in doubt. Trump recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. He is the only president to keep his promise to move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, and the only president to visit the Western Wall.
SIXTEEN, on January 18, 2021, it was reported that the outgoing Capitol Police Chief said Trump began his January 6, 2021, speech at the Ellipse (a 35 min. walk to the Capitol) at 12:00 pm and ended it at 1:11 pm. At 1:10 pm, Trump closed his speech by telling the crowd to “fight like hell.”
According to the police chief (and this is the official timeline), the first group of protesters arrived at the Capitol at about 12:40 pm (while Trump was still speaking about 35 min. away and about 30 minutes before Trump told the crowd to fight like hell).
Others had time to get there by the time the Capitol was broken into (at 1:59 pm), but the House impeached Trump for inciting the protesters even though many were at the Capitol before Trump allegedly “incited anyone.”
SEVENTEEN, on January 15, 2021, Bill Koenig said, “Big Pharma is also putting pressure on the FDA to stop or heavily restrict access to hydroxychloroquine or Ivermectin.”
Prophecy Plus is not advising anyone to use these medicines and everyone must be responsible for his/ her own decision, but since Dr. Kory told the U.S. Senate that a group of highly respected doctors think that Ivermectin is safe and effective for preventing COVID in most people, some have been buying Ivermectin (blue liquid, 250 mL bottle, with 2 pour spouts) at farm supply stores and amazon.com. [IMPORTANT NOTE: Shomair Yisrael joins in this caution. Shomair addresses spiritual matters, not physical– medical– matters. Your healthcare is the responsibility of you and your healthcare provider.]
FYI, on January 18, 2021, lifesitenews reported that India has developed an effective and safe COVID treatment kit that uses Ivermectin and sells for $2.65 per person. The report says this inexpensive kit has been used to cause a steep decline in the number of COVID cases and fatality rate in India. If Ivermectin is lowering the number of cases and fatality rate in a densely populated nation like India, why is Big Pharma opposing it in the U.S., and why do we have the crippling lockdowns, social distancing, etc.?Since Ivermectin is inexpensive, why do we need Big Pharma’s costly vaccine, to track people, etc.?
If the House of Representatives can impeach the U.S. president in two days, why haven’t they distributed inexpensive COVID kits to U.S. citizens?
Here is a link to the article:
If the Rapture does not happen soon, there is no telling what our nation and God’s people will face.
FINALLY, if you want to go to Heaven, you must be born again (John 3:3). God loves you, and if you have not done so, sincerely admit that you are a sinner; believe that Jesus is the virgin-born, sinless Son of God who died for the sins of the world, was buried, and raised from the dead; ask Him to forgive your sins, cleanse you, come into your heart and be your Savior; then tell someone that you have done this.
Until next Sunday, Shalom and Maranatha.
