Revelation 6:9-12 – And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: [10] And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? [11] And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled. [12] And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;

Issued December 9, 2011 Shows the last 1335 days of

the tribulation period after Antichrist attacks Israel!

II Thessalonians 2:1 – Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,

This is, of course, referring to the gathering together, the catching up, of the saints in I Thessalonians 4:16,17 – For the Lord himself shall des-cend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: [17] Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air and so shall we ever be with the Lord

The primary subject of II Thessalonians 2:1-12 involves the event known as the “rapture,” which is identified as the first resurrection in the New Testament.  The only angel specifically identified as an archangel is Michael, but it is generally accepted that Satan and Gabriel were also archangels, created by God to rule over the three angelic realms he created for different specific purposes.

Daniel 10:13 – But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days: but, lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me; and I remained there with the kings of Persia.

Daniel 12:1 – And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.  Jude 1:9 – Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.  II Thessalonians 2:1,2 – Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, [2] That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word nor by letter as from us as that the day of Christ is at hand.

Paul tells them specifically in unmistakable terms – If any stand up among you, and tell you something I told you about the rapture, which is different from what I taught you, don’t get shook up in your spiritual mind or troubled in your daily walk, even if they claim to be led of the Holy Spirit to say it, or claim it is the word of God, or even if they show you an epistle they say we wrote, which they use to tell you the Lord is coming at some specific time in the near future.  His major thrust is a simple one – do NOT believe anything different from what I originally taught you.  Do NOT believe them if they tell you the rapture is in the immediate future or it has already occurred, such as was the case Paul mentioned in his second epistle to Timothy.

II Timothy 2:18 – Who concerning the truth have erred, saying that the resurrection is past already; and overthrow the faith of some.

II Thessalonians 2:1-3 – Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, [2] That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. [3] Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

In verse one Paul tells them the subject he is about to address is the first resurrection. In verse two he tells them not to believe anything that is different from what he originally taught them about the first resurrection, especially as it pertains to being in the immediate future or having occurred in the past. Paul begins verse three by referring back to verse two by telling them again, “Let no man deceive you by any means,” meaning, as he had previously advised them against believing anything different from what he had previously taught them.  So, just what did he tell them had to first happen before the rapture occurred?  He said two things had to happen before the rapture would occur: “for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition.”  First, there had to be a falling away from the faith once delivered to the saints – So this means the truths of the faith had to be taught in many places before believers could fall way from it, which meant the rapture had not already occurred, nor was it in the near future when Paul wrote this epistle.  The second event, which was to occur before the rapture, and which had not occurred when Paul wrote the epistle, was a visible revealing of the antichrist to the eyes of believers.


II Thessalonians 2:3 – Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

At times in the New Testament, the expression “that day” has a wide variety of prophetic time periods, which are determined by the context of the verses in which it is found.  In these verses the context determines “that day” to mean specifically the day of the rapture. Paul advises the local church that those who are telling them that the rapture has already occurred, or is about to happen in the immediate future, are misinforming them.  And he then gives then two reasons why what they have been told by these men is simply not true.  The first reason is that the great “falling away” had not occurred at the time he wrote the epistle, and until it did no one could say the coming of the Lord was going to happen right away.  The Greek word translated “falling away” is “apostosia,” from which our English word “apostasy” is derived.  In the context of these verses, it is preceded by the definite article in the Greek text, and can only refer to “the falling away” from something, and that something represents the gospel truths of the faith once delivered to the saints.

Jude 1:3 – Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. Matthew 24:14 – And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

The faith, a system of teaching and doctrine, had to first be in place in order to have a “falling away” from it.  In an attempt to justify the “first of the week” position, in very recent times, someone came up with the idea that “apostosia” meant “a catching out” of the saved at the rapture, but that is stretching the linguistic meaning of the word far beyond allowable limits.  It’s a cute idea, but it just isn’t true.

Well, I would say it is finally getting close to the first resurrection, because the falling away from the truth is now in full swing on a worldwide basis, just as Paul indicated in his second epistle to Timothy.

II Timothy 4:1-4 – I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; [2] Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. [3] For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; [4] And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

The second reason he gave them that the rapture had not yet occurred, and was not in the immediate future, was that the man of sin, the anti-christ, had not yet been revealed to them.  The Greek word rendered “revealed” in the KJV is “apokalupto.” It means “to remove the veil or covering away from, so as to expose to open view what was before hid-den, hence, to reveal, to make manifest.”  The same word is used in the same epistle to refer to Christ’s visible manifestation at the time of his Second Advent.

II Thessalonians 1:7,8 – And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, [8] In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:

Revelation 1:7 – Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.

Some who hold the “first of the week” position teach we will be caught out before the antichrist is revealed to the believers, but that is simply not true.  I have a suspicion that many who believe they will be caught up before the manifestation of the antichrist are going to be as surprised as an animal suddenly finding itself trapped inside a snare.  They will suddenly find themselves trapped in the tribulation period with a real manifested antichrist in the Middle East.

Luke 21:35 – For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Revelation 12:17 – And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed,

The Islamic Clanton’s are gathering at the Tombstone O.K. Corral!

November 21, 2006

The Clanton Clan of Syria, Iraq and Iran are getting together for pre-funeral preparations to select their Armageddon Tombstones.  There is a wild shoot-out of some three and one-half years awaiting them after it begins. At the end of the shoot-out, rest assured their bodies and bones will be stretched out across the Armageddon landscape of Israel, all waiting to be unceremoniously placed in plots without tombstones.

The President of Iran is very anxious to generate great chaos so the Islamic Mahdi Imam Messiah will take over the old world.  He will rise out of greater Syria and his reign will be  some three and one-half years after it begins.  It will be the chaos that God looses on the earth that produces dead bodies from one end of Israel to the other.

Tectonic Chaos – Chapter 25 – The Big Cleanup

I am persuaded that a vicious blitzkrieg like attack will eventually be launched against Israel from the north. It will be the attack of the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal foretold by Ezekiel. We have covered this attack in detail in many previous updates, which may be found above in our Prophecy Archives in non-suffixed Prophecy Update Numbers 27 to 38.  Gog is not a Russian prince, he is the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, whose descendants were settled in Syria when Ezekiel wrote his prophecies.

Ezekiel 38:16 – And thou shalt come up against my people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, and I will bring thee against my land, that the heathen may know me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes.

Now, let’s take a look at the aftermath of this attack after God has destroyed Gog’s army by the greatest geological holocaust that has ever occurred in the land of Israel.

Ezekiel 39:8-16 – Behold, it is come, and it is done, saith the Lord God; this is the day whereof I have spoken. [9] And they that dwell in the cities of Israel shall go forth, and shall set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and the bucklers, the bows and the arrows, and the handstaves, and the spears, and they shall burn them with fire seven years: [10] So that they shall take no wood out of the field, neither cut down any out of the forests; for they shall burn the weapons with fire: and they shall spoil those that spoiled them, and rob those that robbed them, saith the Lord God. [11] And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will give unto Gog a place there of graves in Israel, the valley of the passengers on the east of the sea: and it shall stop the noses of the passengers: and there shall they bury Gog and all his multitude: and they shall call it The valley of Hamon-gog. [12] And seven months shall the house of Israel be burying of them, that they may cleanse the land. [13] Yea, all the people of the land shall bury them; and it shall be to them a renown the day that I shall be glorified, saith the Lord God. [14] And they shall sever out men of continual employment, passing through the land to bury with the passengers those that remain upon the face of the earth, to cleanse it: after the end of seven months shall they search. [15] And the passengers that pass through the land, when any seeth a man’s bone, then shall he set up a sign by it, till the buriers have buried it in the valley of Hamon-gog. [16] And also the name of the city shall be Hamonah. Thus shall they cleanse the land.

Verse 8 informs us that the day of the Lord is done. The events daily appearing in the Middle East are presently leading us to that great day of the Lord. Finally, it will be over – God’s wrath will have passed – and a remnant of Jews still in physical flesh will dig themselves out of the ashes of the Great Tribulation Period. They will begin to build a new millennial world with their Messiah, Jesus Christ, as their King.

Verse 9 pictures these Jews gathering the war weapons of Armageddon and smelting them with fire into weapons of agriculture and commerce. It will be seven years before the metals have all been recycled into materials to be used by a nation in peaceful pursuits.

Verse 10 advises us that wood will not be used to provide the fire necessary for smelting the metal in the weapons of war. They will take the oil of the Arab nations that spoiled them in the Tribulation Period. They will use their oil to produce the fire that fires the metal into useful peacetime products.

Verse 11 describes the massive cleanup of the millions of corpses from the Battle of Armageddon that still clutter the hills of Galilee, Samaria, and Judea. They will bury them in a valley they will name “the valley of Hamon-gog.” Hamon-gog means “multitude of Gog,” and Gog is the Antichrist, so this valley can be referred to as “the graveyard of the Antichrist.” The exact location is unknown. We are merely told it will be to the east of the Dead Sea. You will not find directions listed as being anything other than north, east, west, and south in the Old Testament. Any direction from NE to SE was referred to as east, SE to SW as south, SW to NW as west, and NW to NE as north. So this burial zone could be anywhere from northeast to southeast of the Dead Sea. I rather suspect it will be to the southeast of the Dead Sea near Petra.

Verse 12 gives the length of time required to cover and bury the countless numbers of exposed bodies – seven months. However, many bodies will be buried under massive landslides associated with earthquake activity, and it will be necessary to continue to search for bodies for a much longer period of time.

Verse 13 tells us that all the Israelites will take their turn during the seven-month period of massive burials. It may be that each Israelite will be required to do one months service during the period. By the end of the seven-month period they will have buried most of the bodies.

Verse 14 advises us the compulsory graveyard service of all the Israelites will end after seven months, but that a new system will be instituted to continue the search as long as is required. It may work something like this: the nation of Israel will take some of its men, employed in other aspects of continuous nation rebuilding, and divert them to a full-time job of overseeing and performing the removal of the remaining bodies from the land. These full-time body disposers will work together with other Israelites (passengers) that travel routinely through the land.

Verse 15 describes how the full-time grave providers and passengers will work together toward a common goal. After seven months only skeletons will remain, so when a traveler happens across a skeleton, in his normal daily pursuits, he will stick up a clearly visible marker by it. When the full-time grave providers see the marker, they will carry the bones to the Antichrist’s graveyard for burial.

Verse 16 informs us there will be so many grave provider personnel that a city named Hamonah will spring up by the Antichrist’s graveyard. Since the name Hamonah means “multitude,” it is only natural to assume the city is named in memory of its permanent residents.

Iraq says to restore Full Ties with Syria

Ross Colvin

BAGHDAD (Reuters) – Iraq and Syria expect to restore full diplomatic ties this week, the Iraqi government said on Monday after Syria’s visiting foreign minister pledged support in helping its neighbour quell rampant violence.

Iraq and Syria severed ties a quarter of a century ago, when Syria sided with Iran during the 1980-1988 Iran-Iraq war. They restored some links in the 1990s but do not have full relations.

“The first step is restoring diplomatic relations before the delegation  leaves, God willing,” Iraqi government spokesman Ali al-Dabbagh told state television on Monday night.

The visit by Walid al-Moualem is the first by a Syrian minister since the U.S-led 2003 invasion and is a rare visit by any senior Arab official to Shi’ite-led Iraq, whose U.S. occupation and close ties with Shi’ite Islamist Iran are viewed with suspicion by Arab states.

U.S. and Iraqi officials have long accused Damascus of doing too little to stem the flow of foreign Islamist fighters and weapons across its long, porous border. Syria says sealing the border is impossible and Iraq must do more to patrol its side.

The U.S. military said on Monday that between 70 and 100 foreign fighters were still crossing the border each month.

“We don’t know how much they (Syria) are assisting this effort, but we don’t know how much they are trying to preclude it either,” U.S. military spokesman Major General William Caldwell told reporters in Baghdad.

After meeting Iraqi officials, including Shi’ite Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, Moualem pledged Syria’s cooperation in tackling violence that has raised the spectre of civil war, saying it was prepared to work “hand in hand to achieve the security of brother Iraq”.


“The stability of Iraq is a very important part of the stability of Syria,” he said. Around 1 million Iraqi refugees have fled to Syria since the 2003 U.S.-led invasion.

Dabbagh said the good words now needed to be followed by action, noting that the two countries planned to set up a joint security committee.

“We see positive desires and good intentions. We would like these intentions to be translated into deeds on the ground.”

U.S. President George W. Bush’s allies have urged him recently to open the door to talks with Tehran and Damascus to seek their help in stabilising Iraq, where insurgent violence and sectarian attacks are threatening to tear the country apart.

But Moualem, who said on Sunday that a timetable for a U.S. troop withdrawal would be the best way to reduce violence, said he was not in Iraq to “please the United States”.

“I am nobody’s godfather and not a mediator for the United States,” he told a joint news conference after talks with powerful Iraqi Shi’ite Islamist leader Abdul Aziz al-Hakim.

“In this current situation there is no dialogue between Syria and the United States,” he said.

Washington withdrew its ambassador to Damascus and says it will not authorise higher-level contacts because of Syria’s suspected role in supporting violent militants, Iraqi insurgents and opponents of Lebanon’s government.

Iran Invites Iraqi, Syrian Presidents

November 20, 2006




Iran has invited the Iraqi and Syrian presidents to Tehran for a weekend summit with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to hash out ways to cooperate in curbing the runaway violence that has taken Iraq to the verge of civil war and threatens to spread through the region, four key lawmakers told The Associated Press on Monday.

Iraqi President Jalal Talabani has accepted the invitation and will fly to the Iranian capital Saturday, a close parliamentary associate said.

The Iranian diplomatic gambit appeared designed to upstage expected moves from Washington to include Syria and Iran in a wider regional effort to clamp off violence in Iraq, where more civilians have been killed in the first 20 days of November than in any other month since the AP began tallying the figures in April 2005.

The Iranian move was also a display of its increasingly muscular role in the Middle East, where it already has established deep influence over Syria and Lebanon.

“All three countries intend to hold a three-way summit among Iraq, Iran and Syria to discuss the security situation and the repercussions for stability of the region,” said Ali al-Adeeb, a lawmaker of Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki’s Dawa Party and a close aide to the prime minister.

The State Department reacted with skepticism about Iran’s intentions in Iraq, but said it was up to Iraq to decide. “It’s their call; it’s their decision,” deputy spokesman Tom Casey said in Washington.

“We have seen statements like this many times in the past,” and there have been several high-level contacts between Iran and Iraq, Casey said. But Iran’s statements of a desire to reduce violence in Iraq “have not been backed up by facts,” the U.S. spokesman said.

As for Syria, Casey said, “The problem is not what they say but what they do.”

Both Iran and Syria are seen as key players in Iraq. Syria is widely believed to have done little to stop foreign fighters and al-Qaida in Iraq recruits from crossing its border to join Sunni insurgents in Iraq. It also has provided refuge for many top members of Saddam Hussein’s former leadership and political corps, which is thought to have organized arms and funding for the insurgents. The Sunni insurgency, since it sprang to life in late summer 2003, has been responsible for most of the U.S. deaths in Iraq.

Iran is deeply involved in training, funding and arming the two major Shiite militias in Iraq, where Tehran has deep historic ties to the current Shiite political leadership. Many Iraqi Shiites spent years in Iranian exile during Saddam’s decades in power in Baghdad. One militia, the Badr Brigade, was trained in Iran by the Revolutionary Guard.

An Ahmadinejad spokesman said that Talibani’s visit was scheduled several weeks ago for late November to work on improving bilateral relations. But Majid Yazdi told the AP that he had no information on a coming visit by the Syrian leader.

But Talabani confidants said the invitation was issued on Thursday by Iranian Ambassador Hassan Kazimi Qumi, who said Syrian President Bashar Assad also would be in Tehran for the talks with Ahmadinejad.

AP correspondents Bassem Mroue in Baghdad and Nasser Karimi in Tehran contributed to this report.
