A Prophetic Review

magi

Are you following what God is revealing to the churches, or scoffing from the sidelines?

The one-year anniversary of the Revelation 12 Sign will occur in just three short days and a plausible explanation for the Sign of the Dragon may be happening in just a few weeks.  Excitement is building for the first day of Tabernacles, Shemini Atzeret, and a possibly delayed Feast of Trumpets to occur in October.  I’ve been reminiscing lately about all the incredible revelation God has given to the Church over the course of these past few years, largely because of these heavenly signs.  Indeed, based on the way I divide Luke’s account of the Olivet Discourse in Luke 21, the first major sign(s) indicating that the Day of the LORD is at hand are “signs in the sun, moon, and stars” (Lk. 21:25).  Only one sign in the entire Bible explicitly includes both sun, moon, and stars, and that is the sign recorded in the first two verses of Revelation 12.

In light of all that God has graciously revealed to us over these past few years, I wanted to once again provide a chronological recap of key articles that will provide our newer readers with a solid overview of properly divided biblical prophecy:

I’ve also been overwhelmed with joy because of the incredible brotherhood that has developed in the Body because of these things.  It feels as if we’re 21st century magi joined together for one, unifying purpose: to find the One born King of the Jews—but this time not a baby in a manger—instead, a glorious King in the clouds.  I want to take a minute and thank each of you for all that you’ve shown me and done for me.  I’ve lost some family and friends because of all this, but have truly received one hundredfold just as Christ said would happen in Mark 10:29–30.  When I stop to think about it, I often feel even closer to many of you than I do to some of my own flesh and blood, because brothers and sisters in Christ are of an entirely greater and more permanent family.

To our readers who so faithfully journey with us and encourage us when we’ve been down, discouraged, or under attack.  God has used your love, new insights, and gracious comments to keep us going and to write with new inspiration.  There’s so many of you that have blessed us, I couldn’t name every one, but thank you, thank you, thank you.  You’re the reason Unsealed exists, so I can’t help but mention you first.

To those of you who have graciously supported the mission financially, thank you!  I can give you statistics for just some of what God has done with what you have given (hint, hint: hundreds of thousands of people around the world have heard the Gospel!), but I don’t think any of us will understand the full weight of what God has done through you until we soon see Heaven.

My dad (whom you all know as “Greg”).  You’re a constant friend and encouragement.  I’ve been blessed to be discipled under you.  Two things you’ve taught me: 1. Trust Christ and God’s Word above all else, and 2. Don’t get stuck in traditions; follow Scripture wherever it leads.

Jeff, our friendship started because of the Revelation 12 Sign.  We were watching the sky together and God used that to develop a close friendship that will continue into the age to come.  Your friendship and wisdom are a priceless blessing.

Bryan, you also have become a close friend, fellow coffee (and sushi) connoisseur, and personal Barnabas.  You have encouraged each one of us with your godly wisdom and motivation to press on.

Brad, if only you lived down south!  You have been a great friend and fellow watchman.  Many encouraging phone calls and teamwork over the past two years.  We have the same mission and will not stop until we accomplish it (by God’s grace).

Hillary, you have become a pivotal part of our team and a great source of grace and focus for all of us.  Your message is a constant reminder of God’s grace and the importance of never wavering on what really counts: the Gospel.  Of late you seem to have more motivation than all of us combined.

Stephanie, though we haven’t met yet, your ministry on Facebook has been so important to the mission that we’re all a part of.  You are graciously leading and rightly dividing the Word for thousands upon thousands to see.

Mike, I want to send a special thanks to you, brother.  On your own initiative you have become a real leader on our growing online community (nearing 600 people!).  There is so much going on across our ministries that it’s become kind of overwhelming.  Knowing that we have a humble, godly leader who rightly divides the Word and knows the Gospel, leading our community, is a huge blessing.

Our other forum leaders: @Natalie, @KJS, @Yardstick, and @Barbiosheepgirl.  When we were first trying to build out the leadership, we went through many names.  You rose to the top for the right reasons.  Godly, faithful, humble, and wise.  Thank you.

Dan, I think I can honestly say we are all thankful for your unbelievable diligence and friendship.  How in the world do you get all of that research done?!  It’s a blessing to all of us and helps keep us going.

Jim, you were a light on the forum and are now a real encourager on our Watchmen on the Wall group.  You remind us to take these things very seriously, as well as to remind us that spiritual warfare is all too real.

Greg L., you know I’ve tried to convince you to come to Unsealed, but have been unable!  Irregardless, many of us have found great wisdom and inspiration from your articles, so it seems God has placed you right where He wants you.  You have the best exegesis on the 24 elders, the Millennial Temple, and the nature of signs that I’ve ever read.  Keep going, brother, our “exit” is not far ahead.

Barry, I’ve also tried to convince you to meet up with us the next time you’re in town, and though we haven’t talked, I can’t help but think of you as a friend.  You’re a very personal encouragement to all of us and your stalwart defense of the Gospel has opened thousands of eyes as you expose the lawlessness of the law-keepers.

There are many others I want to write a whole thank you to, but time is not yet permitting.  Just a few of you: Adam, Scottie, Matt M., Paul D., Matt P. (Daily Crow!!!), Jaco, Darren, Paul S. (Zeus!!!), and on and on.  Each of you is greatly appreciated.  We are all on the same team and have the same goal, “pressing on toward the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” (Phil. 3:14).

– – –
We all have a mission to do and there is precious little time left to do it (months, weeks, days?).  Let’s keep going!  Encourage, exhort, and (lovingly) admonish one another.  Share what God is showing you.  Don’t put your light under a bushel.  Put it out for all to see.  Your faith and hope and the wisdom of God will soon be proven true.

For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.  After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air.  And so we will be with the Lord forever.  Therefore encourage one another with these words.

– 1 Thessalonians 4:16–18

I am 362 months old this month.  Strong’s 362 is “I await (one whose coming is expected)”.  The word is used only one time in Scripture:

And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, Jesus who delivers us from the wrath to come.

Is Russia preparing to ATTACK US troops in Syria? Moscow warns it will target areas held by US Special Forces if the Kremlin’s soldiers are fired on ‘again’ by anti-Assad forces

 

  • Russian troops are fighting with the Syrian army to recapture city of Deir Ezzor 
  • Syrian Democratic Forces and US special forces have also moved on the city
  • Moscow says its troops have come under fire twice from American positions
  • Russia said its soldiers are prepared to return fire if they are threatened

Russia has said its troops are prepared to fire on US positions in Syria if they come under attack by American-backed soldiers ‘again’.

The Kremlin accused US forces of ‘twice’ firing on positions being occupied by the army of Bashar al-Assad, which is fighting alongside Russian special forces to recapture the city of Deir Ezzor from ISIS.

Moscow said the Syrian Democratic Forces, which are being supported by US troops on the ground, opened fire with artillery and mortars, though did not say when.

If this happens again, ‘those areas will be immediately suppressed with all military means’, Russian commander Major-General Igor Konashenkov said.

He added: ‘A representative of the U.S. military command was told in no uncertain terms that any attempts to open fire from areas where SDF fighters are located would be quickly shut down.’

Russia said SDF forces, which are mostly comprised of Kurdish People’s Liberation Army battalions, had split away from fighting around ISIS’s de-facto capital in Raqqa to join the battle in Deir Ezzor.

The Syrian Arab Army, controlled by Assad, is currently fighting along the western shore of the Euphrates river and has pushed into the main city.

Meanwhile the SDF has taken up positions on the opposite bank and are fighting towards the outlying town of Hussainiyah.

Tensions in the region have been rising as the two armies push toward each-other, bringing two world superpowers ever closer to direct conflict.

Both President Trump and President Putin have insisted that their only goal in Syria is to eliminate ISIS, but that has not stopped the pair butting heads.

The most serious incident took place earlier this year when Trump launched 60 cruise missiles at Shayrat Airbase, which is controlled by Assad and had Russian troops stationed there at the time.

The move was retaliation for a gas attack on the town of Khan Sheikhoun which the UN has said was perpetrated by the Assad regime.

Earlier this week the Russian Defence Ministry  accused U.S. spies of initiating a jihadi offensive against government-held parts of north-west Syria.

Both Russia and the US say their sole goal in Syria is the eradication of ISIS, but this has not stopped the two superpowers from butting heads

The ministry said 29 Russian military policemen had been surrounded by jihadis as a result and that Russia had been forced to break them out.

‘According to our information, U.S. intelligence services initiated the offensive to halt the successful advance of government troops to the east of Deir Ezzor,’ said Colonel-General Sergei Rudskoi.

The Syrian army, backed by Russian war planes, has captured about 100 km (160 miles) of the west bank of the Euphrates this month, reaching the Raqqa provincial border on Wednesday, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported.

Syrian troops also crossed to the eastern side of the river on Monday where the SDF has been advancing.

The convergence of the rival offensives has increased tensions in Deir al-Zor.

The U.S.-backed militia said on Saturday they had come under attack from Russian jets and Syrian government forces, something Moscow denied.

On Monday, the SDF warned against any further Syrian army advances on the eastern riverbank, and Russia’s Defence Ministry said on Tuesday that the waters of the Euphrates had risen as soon as the Syrian army began crossing it, suggesting this could only have happened if upstream dams held by the U.S.-backed opposition had been opened.  (Click to Site)

 

 

Catholics To Rally In Prayer Against First Satanic Monument On Public Land In U.S. History

Where are the true Biblical Born Again Believers while “Rome is on Fire”? Oh I forgot, the modern day Church is in love with the world. Sin and Satanism is taking over this land!

rtsp1u9-e1499724199204

Catholics in Minnesota will gather to ask for God’s protection and to pray against the nation’s first Satanic monument approved for display on public land.

Lay members of the Catholic church will gather July 15 for a rosary rally to pray for America’s protection from Satan, in light of a Satanic monument approved in May for display in a veterans memorial park in Belle Plaine, Minn. The monument, a large black steel cube engraved with a golden inverted pentagram topped with an upturned soldier’s helmet, is the first such monument approved for display on public grounds in the U.S. The rosary rally is organized by America Needs Fatima (ANF) and Return to Order (RTO), two campaign branches of a Catholic lay organization called Tradition, Family, and Property.

“The best way that Satan can accomplish his mission of luring souls into damnation is to erode the horror, the natural horror, that men have of the devil,” said Robert Ritchie, director of America Needs Fatima, in an interview with The Daily Caller News Foundation.

“Once that natural horror is eroded, the devil has a better chance of having people accept his presence. So our job as Catholics is to remind people of the truth that they already know — that Satan is our ultimate enemy who wants our ultimate failure in life and who wants to destroy the purpose of life which is to correspond to God’s plan for each person and to go to Heaven. And the devil wants people not to live according to God’s plan and wants them to go to Hell,” Ritchie said.

The co-founder of The Satanic Temple, Lucien Greaves, said in an interview withThe New York Times, eroding man’s horror to Satan is one of the goals of installing the monument.

“We wouldn’t be doing this if it didn’t mean something to us,” Greaves said. “The more we do these types of things, the less shocking this will be as time goes by.”

ANF and RTO have no plans to pursue legal actions, but instead will focus on prayer and fasting to combat Satanic influence in America. (Click to Site)

US military reveals $65m funding for ‘Matrix’ projects to plug human brains directly into a computer

  • System could be used to give soldiers ‘supersenses’ and boost brainpower
  • Will also allow radical new treatments for patients with sensory disorders 
  • Four teams will focus on vision and two on aspects of hearing and speech

The US military has revealed $65 of funding for a programme to develop a ‘brain chip’ allowing humans to simply plug into a computer.

They say the system could give soldiers supersenses and even help treat people with blindness, paralysis and speech disorders

The goal is ‘developing an implantable system able to provide precision communication between the brain and the digital world,’ DARPA officials said.

It has selected its five grant recipients for the Neural Engineering System Design (NESD) program, which it began at the start of this year.

Brown University, Columbia University, The Seeing and Hearing Foundation, the John B. Pierce Laboratory, Paradromics Inc and the University of California, Berkeley will all receive multi-million dollar grants.

‘These organizations have formed teams to develop the fundamental research and component technologies required to pursue the NESD vision of a high-resolution neural interface and integrate them to create and demonstrate working systems able to support potential future therapies for sensory restoration,’ official said.

Four of the teams will focus on vision and two will focus on aspects of hearing and speech.  (Click to Site)

This Silicon Valley company wants to ‘make better humans’ through biohacking

Michael Brandt has all the resume highlights that tech entrepreneurs dream of: Stanford grad, ex-Google employee and an Andreessen Horowitz backing for his startup.

He’s the co-founder of HVMN (allegedly pronounced “human”) — formerly Nootrobox — which sells subscriptions for monthly boxes of cognitive supplements. The company is also behind Go Cubes, “chewable coffee” bites sold at convenience stores to compete with products like 5-hour energy.

“We want to make better humans. We want to take technology and use it to help you as a system,” Brandt, the company’s co-founder and COO, told CNBC at his San Francisco office. “You have inputs. You have outputs like your productivity, your reaction time, your happiness even.” (Click to Article)

 

Four Outrages In This Week’s UNESCO’s Anti-Israel Resolution On Jerusalem

against-jerusalem

TEL AVIV — The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) on Tuesday passed a highly biased anti-Israel resolution regarding Jerusalem’s Old City and its ancient walls.

Below, in no particular order, are four outrages inside the brief text of the Jordanian-sponsored resolution, affirmed by the UN body’s World Heritage Council:

1 – The resolution refers to the Old City of Jerusalem as “occupied territories” and claims that Israel is the “occupying power” there.

This would make Israel the “occupying power” over the Temple Mount and Western Wall and implies that the Palestinian Authority, which never had a state or legal entity in Jerusalem (or the West Bank, for that matter) are the rightful authorities over the ancient city of Jerusalem.

Jordan illegally occupied and annexed eastern Jerusalem, which includes the Old City, from 1948 until Israel captured the lands in a defensive war in 1967. Known as the Six Day War, the conflict was launched after Arab countries used the West Bank and eastern Jerusalem to stage attacks against the Jewish state. In 1988, Jordan officially renounced its claims to the West Bank and eastern Jerusalem and unilaterally recognized terrorist Yasser Arafat’s Palestine Liberation Organization as “the sole legitimate representative of the Palestinian people.”

2 – The text refers to “East Jerusalem,” a nonexistent entity.

Here, the UN has entirely fabricated the existence of an entity called East Jerusalem. In reality, Jerusalem is one city; there is no East Jerusalem. The term is largely utilized to claim that Israel is occupying “East Jerusalem,” referring to the eastern sections of the city, which should supposedly become part of a future Palestinian state.

Jews maintained a historic presence in Jerusalem, including in the eastern sections, until they were forced to leave the Old City en masse in 1948 and eastern Jerusalem fell under illegal Jordanian occupation. (Click to Article)

Canada Legalizes Sex With Animals. What An Evil Wicked Generation Full Of The Devil And On The Road To Hell

sex-acts-with-an-animal-may-accidentally-be-legal-2-32593-1446580960-10_dblbig

By Walid Shoebat

When my favorite street preacher and friend Jeremy De Los Santos chases reprobates he usually yells at them saying “what an evil wicked generation full of the devil and on the road to hell!”

This should be fitting as one reads many of the headlines these days. The Independent reported that the case involved a British Columbia man, identified as “DLW,” who was convicted of 13 counts of sexually assaulting his stepdaughters, but was acquitted of bestiality — because he “only” forced dogs into oral sex, without penetration being involved. The man “smeared peanut butter on the genitals of his victims and had the family dog lick it off while he videotaped the act.”

As a result of this story, the case for allowing bestiality came up and instead of doing what is right Canada’s Supreme Court instead legalized having sex between people and animals as long as “no penetration is involved”.

Out of the 8 judges only one had sanity. Justice Rosalie Abella, the lone dissenter in the 7-1 ruling, said that penetration should not be considered essential when defining bestiality.

“Acts with animals that have a sexual purpose are inherently exploitative whether or not penetration occurs,” Abella said.

The west is becoming sicker and sicker. The Canadian legislature process recently made international news after the Liberal Party, led by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, introduced a new bill seeking to establish two year prison terms for people found guilty of transgender discrimination.

Neural Implant Tech Raises the Specter of Brainjacking

Is This How Antichrist Brainjacks Humanity? Neural Implant Tech Raises Specter

brainread

The human mind is already pretty open to manipulation—just ask anyone who works in advertising. But neural implant technology could potentially open up a direct digital link to our innermost thoughts that could be exploited by hackers.

In recent months, companies like Elon Musk’s Neuralink, Kernel, and Facebook have unveiled plans to create devices that will provide a two-way interface between human brains and machines.

While these devices could undoubtedly bring many benefits, they would be networked to computers and therefore essentially part of the Internet of Things. That should immediately set off alarm bells for anyone paying attention to cybersecurity news.

There have been repeated warnings in recent years about the huge number of vulnerabilities in “smart” devices designed by consumer goods companies with little experience of or consideration for cybersecurity.

One would expect that the added sensitivity of a device set to be integrated into people’s bodies would warrant more caution. But it has already been demonstrated that it is possible to hack medical implants to harm patients, and there seems to be no reason the same wouldn’t be true of neural implants.

In a paper in World Neurosurgery last year, Oxford PhD student Laurie Pycroft warned about the possibility of ‘brainjacking’hackers exerting unauthorized control of brain implants. (Click to Article)
