By Pastor Mike Taylor
"Behold, ye are of nothing, and your work of nought: an abomination is he that chooseth you." (Isaiah 41:24)
In these last days of man's attempt to rule this world, God has laid out a challenge to anyone claiming to be a god. Since there is only One God and His Name is Jehovah or YAHWEH, God almighty proclaims in His Word that if there be any other god, then declare the end from the beginning. His challenge is to predict the future.
"Produce your cause, saith the LORD; bring forth your strong reasons, saith the King of Jacob. Let them bring them forth, and shew us what shall happen: let them shew the former things, what they be, that we may consider them, and know the latter end of them; or declare us things for to come." (Isaiah 41:21-22)
Prophecy is only known to God the Father, and His Son, Jesus Christ. The bible is 27% prophecy and every point that has been fulfilled in history was foretold in your bible with 100% accuracy. Our God knows what will happen before the world was formed. Those that still need to be fulfilled, will come to pass as the God that formed this universe and all that is in it, has willed it and foresaw it's outcome. The false religion of Islam and their god, Allah, knows nothing.
Those that remain unfulfilled are in complete harmony with current secularist futurist predictions. That is to say, events relied on by secular forecasters to develop long-term geopolitical or environmental trends suggest the same outcomes predicted by Scripture. God has shown us the future and it is in His Word..your bible.
Man sees unrest and wars that virtually cover our planet in a hop scotch form of unrest and upheaval. The Bible predicted wars and rumors of wars in the last days. The elite in Washington predicts a generational war with Islam and the Arab nations.
The bible predicts unusual weather patterns and environmental disasters. Weather forecasters have reported nine of the hottest years on record since 1995 and will continue for the unforeseeable future. Earthquakes have increased 400% in the last 10-20 years and volcanoes long thought to be dormant have once again come alive all over the planet.
The Bible has predicted there will be signs in the sun, the moon and the stars. NASA predicts that there will be shift in the 11 year solar cycles that will produce increasing hotter temperatures on the surface of the earth.
The bible predicts that the sun will someday scorch men with painful sores:
And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory. (Revelation 16:9)
NASA says changes in the ozone layers and increasing ultraviolet light is responsible for most skin cancers.
God Himself issues a challenge to other so-called 'gods' to predict the future:
"Produce your cause, saith the LORD; bring forth your strong reasons, saith the King of Jacob. Let them bring them forth, and shew us what shall happen: let them shew the former things, what they be, that we may consider them, and know the latter end of them; or declare us things for to come." (Isaiah 41:21-22)
Only our God, the King of the Universe is omniscient and omniprescent and knows what will happen and when it will happen. God not only knows the future, but the circumstances that will bring it to pass.

Our God continues to challenge the false religions of this world. Satan can know some of the details, as he will cause them to happen, but he won't know everything, as he can't predict the future.
The best he can do is detail what he has planned in advance to one of his 'prophets'. He doesn't know how those plans will turn out. He had a plan to defeat Jesus by having Him killed by His Chosen People. Had he known the outcome, he would have planned things differently:
"Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory." (1st Corinthians 2:8)

Almighty God issues His challenge, because He knows that there are NO other gods, but the God of heaven and earth. He alone is God and it stands to reason that He is able to accuarately predict the future. But man led by Satan is determined to be a “god unto himself”...


"Behold, ye are of nothing, and your work of nought: an abomination is he that chooseth you." (Isaiah 41:24)
Although Islam does profess a type of prophecy that they say will happen, they take their predictions from what is said in the bible and twist them to the own end.
Islamic predictions of a coming messiah type figure riding on a white horse is taken from Revelation 6:3,
And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.”
They predict this will be the Mahdi, but as Christians we know that the Bible is identifying the coming Anti-Christ that will come with smooth words to conquer by deceit. Islam predicts that this coming “mahdi” will lead a vast conquering Islamic army to conquer the world by the sword.
There was no predictions or prophecy of the coming of Mohammed, but the “twelvers” of Shia Islam claim that the Mahdi has remained alive since 860 A.D., but Mohammed is as dead as anybody else.
Islam predicts that the returning Mahdi will line up with their version of Jesus (Isa) and subdue the whole earth for Islam. They don't believe that Jesus is the Son of God, but a prophet of God, and not God Himself. In this coming “war” Isa and the Mahdi will kill 1/3 of all mankind and is a hijacking of Revelation's passages that even Satan can read the prophecies of God written by John the Apostle.
Their version lines up with the Anti-Christ and the false prophet. Islam proclaims that this Mahdi and Isa will place a mark in the forehead of it's warriors and followers, as the Bible proclaims the Beast will require a mark on the foreheads, or in their right hand. Coincidence?
And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of thebeast, or the number of his name.” (Revelation 13:7)
Forty years ago, you never heard of Islam, as it was assigned to the backward nations of the Middle East and Indonesia. Theirs was a culture and way of life right out of the 6th Century with all it's backward ways. Islam was not a threat to the West or for that matter our Christian way of life. But all that changed starting in 1979 with the overthrow of the Shah of Iran by the Mullahs, led by Grand Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeinin, the leader of the revolution, supported by various  leftist and Islamic organizations and Iranian student movements. From that point, with the kidnapping of our American citizens as hostages, that then POTUS Carter was ill equipped to deal with, a declaration of war was declard and waged by the rising Islamic nation led by Iran.
It has now been 37 years since that “silent” war erupted and it has been getting louder with each passing year. All over the world, Islam is the fastest growing “religion” that is 1 billion + and growing stronger with new converts even in the once great Christian nation of the U.S.A.
As the home of the brave, land of the free becomes more steeped in apostacy, Islam continues to fill the void left by those who abandoned and forsaken the God of heaven.
We now have a “leader” (and I use that tongue in cheek) who on camera professes his form of “christianity” but behind the scenes praises Islam and promotes its religious idealogy whenever he gets a chance. Many believe, as I do, that he is a closest Muslim, himself. Christianity of those who follow Jesus Christ are regarded as a danger to modern society, by hate speech, ridicule and sometimes even prosecution for their once honored beliefs in the One true God that this nation was founded upon and our motto “IN GOD WE TRUST” was held in high esteem.
IN the past, I have had little hope of this nation rising out of the apostacy that has engulfed her. On our borders, illegal immigration has become rampant, and possible terrorists, even such as ISIS, may have infiltrated our country and are planning attacks, all in the name of “Allah”. Many have already taken place, in San Bernadino, Orlando, and even in Oklahoma. More are sure to come...unless?
I see the news reports, of attacks that are growing from “migrants” that have come from countries bent on our destruction and this “idiot in chief” who promotes their repatritation into this country, and a Democratic candidate that would increase that amount 500% if we are so unfortunate to have her as our next POTUS. Illegal immigration and the growing terrorist risk that confront our country are number one on the minds of most Americans that truly have their head above ground and not stuck in the sand and ignoring what is happening.
One candidate wants to build a wall on our southern border and I say “build that wall”. Rid this country of the scourge that has infiltrated it in the last 10 years and remove the threat to our freedoms and our way of life. He wants to remove illegal immigrants who have come here illegally and break our laws. We should do as the Netherlands has done and remove all Muslims and tear down all Mosques and ban Sharia law that is anathema to our Constitution and our way of life, as this is war on our soil and we should own up to it......Further, one nominee wants to “make America great again” and make her first in dealing with other nations. He says, “Put America first”.
I don't want to get political, but America is at a breaking point. Either she will rise out of these ashes with a leader who has his head on straight and sees the danger, or be lulled to sleep by someone who thinks that there are no problems in this country and wants more of the same of the last 8 years...God forbid!!
This coming election is pivotal. We will continue to be a nation of laws, and God will give us a leader who will pull this nation out of her stupor, or, as a nation, we have been judged as wanting, and God's judgment is about to fall on this land we have grown up in from sea to shining sea, and its inevitable implosion into utter chaos. I know it is in God's hands and His plan for the end of man's rule will come to pass, no matter what we wish.
IN the past, I have made an hypothesis that the coming Anti-Christ will be Muslim. If he comes from the Middle East, and called the Assyrian, we have a high probablity that this man is indeed Muslim. Of course, there are many problems that Israel will face, should this man be of such a religion...but what does the Bible say about this man?
And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.” (Daniel 8:23)
But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things.” (Daniel 11:38)
And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.” (Daniel 8:25)

Whether this man proclaims a false Christianity, or believes and follows the war-like ideology of Islam, the bible says he will magnify his own name above all....He will abandon the God of the Bible, or the false god, Allah for himself.

Is the Anti-Christ Islamic? Is the supposed coming of the 12th Imam, the Anti-Christ.? Understand that Satan is a powerful deceiver. He relishes deceiving mankind with a parallel false religion that mirrors God’s way and His salvation message. Could Islam be that false message, with its false god and its false messiah? Some believe that Islam will be defeated in the battle of Psalm 83 and Ezekiel 38& 39, but it would do well as a watchful Christian to keep an eye on Islam prior to these battles, as Islam is the antithesis of all that is Holy and ordained by our Almighty God, Jehovah or Yahweh…the great I AM, THAT I AM. Paul spoke of this man called the Anti-Christ and his false religion:

“The coming of the lawless one  (the Anti-Christ) is according to the working of Satan with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” II Thessalonians 2:9-12.

It has been almost 40 years since Iran stuck their slimey head above the political landscape and has been almost daily the center of Islamic barbarism. From the time of 9/11 and the World Trade Center, the nation of America has dealt with the ideology of Islam and Iran has become the focal point of all that Islam stands for in their crusade for conquest and world domination.
I was horrified to learn that this so called Iran Nuclear Deal, was nothing but a sham by our current POTUS and gives Iran license to pursue their goal of becoming a nuclear power. For the last 30 years, Iran has been secretly planning on conquest and developing a nuclear weapon and this administration has given them the green light, and wrapped the deal in a ribbon with a big red bow.
Their not so hidden agenda is to be the hegemony power in the Middle East and plans to destroy Israel is priority #1 on their list. The fulfilling of Ezekiel 38 & 39 are on our doorstep and awaits for its prophetic completion. Those who believe your bible, know that the God of heaven will defend Israel with a vengeance and fury that will be devastating to this coalition led by Iran when they come down to Israel. I believe that Islam will be dealt a major blow when 5/6 of this invading army is defeated by God Himself on the mountains of Israel. But know that Islam will not be totally defeated, in my humble opinion.

I'm a firm believer that what is holding back the total onslaught of Islam and the rise of the Anti-Christ is the U.S.A standing in it's way. That's why this election is so important. Either the unveiling of the Anti-Christ will come shortly in the near future, or be delayed because American becomes stronger by being led by a patriot that loves this country. If Islam is the underlying “religion” of the man of sin, then it is being held in check by One all powerful Force, God's Holy Spirit, which is the essence of His power on earth.

If , and I make that with all sincerity, this nation falls into further apostacy and God's judgment falls on this land, then the unveiling of the Anti-Christ, could be coming sooner than later. But this nation with it's large Christian population could suspend judgment on this nation, (although it will come on the whole world) for a season. I am reminded of II Chronicles:
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” (II Chronicles 7:4)
God is in control. He sees the end from the beginning. He sees the future of this country and it's rise, or it's fall. He sees the false religion of Islam and will judge her and her leader harshly with fire and brimstone in their ultimate defeat. He will finally judge the nations, the Anti-Christ and his false prophet in the lake of fire. The only thing that stands firmly in Satan's path to complete destruction of this world, are Christians who pray and hold fast to the teachings of the Bible. If this nation does not turn back to God, then God will bring judgment on this nation, but not before removing all restraint that is holding back that judgment:
6And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
7For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
8And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
9Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
10And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.” (II Thessalonians 2:6-10)

It all comes down to God knows the future...we are watching and praying for His will to be done. When God removes the Restrainer (God's Holy Spirit), God will also remove His people, the Church at that time. It will be sooner, or it will be later. It doesn't bother me who will be elected this time around. I will do my civic duty and vote my conscious, but whoever is elected, it will hasten or slow the removal of God's Church and the revealing of the Anti-Christ. Whether he be Muslim, false christianity, or finally atheist in the end, does not matter to those who are born of the blood and the water of Jesus Christ. The blood from being covered by His atonement death on the cross, and the water from being baptized and embracing that we have died to the former lives we had, and we live anew to God in our bodies...Till He Comes.
If you have been following the news and see that the world is even a more dangerous place than you can ever remember, what will you do when all hell breaks loose and the end of this age is upon us...not in your head, but for real!!. Will you wake up one day and find millions gone and haven't a clue to what has happened? I tell you what has happened before it happens for real. God has removed His Church and you are shackled with the knowledge that the Tribulation will start on Day 1 of God removing His church from this planet.
Will you submit to the religion of the Anti-Christ, or Islam, and take whatever that mark is planted on your forehead and in your right hand? What will you do, what will you think, and where will be your faith be? Will it be in men, or in God? Men will fail you, but God never will. Like I said, this election is pivotable for the near future. We will, as a nation, go down in flames, or rise up for a season until Jesus comes and removes His Bride from this earth. God knows the future. He is God and He has given us ample warning of the nearness of the hour of the soon coming of His Son, Jesus Christ. It could be this's could be next could be before I finish this message. But make no mistake, God knows when that time is up...we can only see the season. Jesus warned us in Matthew 24 what the signs would be. Would you not agree that they are all around us?...the times are shouting at each of us, growing more fervent in their attempt to bring us to repentance and choose His Son while there is still time.
And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up yourheads; for your redemption draweth nigh.” (Luke 21:28)
We have been seeing these signs for a number of years, since the creation of Israel as a nation in 1948. That generation will not pass away till all things be fulfilled..Men have tried to pinpoint the coming of Jesus, but God said that we will know the season, and we will know the length of a generation. It's in your bible...70 years, and 80 by strength. We are near the end of that generation. Jesus could come and if you're not ready, will catch you by surprise and flat footed. Don't let that happen. Make Jesus your Savior right now..
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him, should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)

By Pastor Mike Taylor

“And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. {2:31} The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day ofthe LORD come”. Joel 2:30-31

This is part II completing my sermon on “No Man Knoweth the Day or Hour” and if you have not read the first part, you must make that the foundation to be built upon to understand this teaching presented here. I invite you to read the first part found on this site to prepare your understanding.  In the first part, we established that Jesus was talking about a coming day that could point to the time of His coming to earth to take His church home. It was an “idiom” that any Jewish man living at the time would recognize immediately what Jesus was talking about. When Jesus said these words: Matthew 24,

{24:36} "But of that day and hour knoweth no [man,] no,not the angels of heaven, but my Father only". (no man knoweth the day or the hour)

This “idiom” that Jesus was speaking of was also spoken of ONLY one day on the Hebraic calendar known as the Feast of  Trumpets. As we studied the connection that Jesus spoke of to the God appointed times of His plan for mankind and the prophetic rehearsals that signaled His first coming, death and resurrection, it also points to His second coming at the end of the age of grace for His church on the appointed days. It would be logical and scriptural to assume that if God used these times for the redemption plan of salvation to be completed on the exact days of these feast days made by God, then knowing God does not do anything by happen stance, we can look to the feast that are still waiting to be fulfilled that are observed in the fall with the first of these days known as “the Feast of Trumpets” also known as the “return of the King”.

But moving on to what I would like to focus on in this part of the sermon, is there anything that can be correlated to this Feast Day that would give us pause and wonder, could this be the day? Word of caution is needed here. I am no Harold Camping, and am not so impudent to say that God has told me the exact day of His return. No, we look to the scriptures to let the Word give us meaning to the coming days, as we see them approaching. And as I cautioned last time, take these words and line them up to your bible and as a good Berean, see if these things be true and judge for  yourself. “Don’t believe me, believe your bible” is exactly what I want each of us to do. There will be mockers, and people who say that this has no meaning except it be seen from Israel and proclaimed by a Rabbi. I am aware that Israel is the center of prophecy, but God gave all of His people warning of His closeness of returning to gather His people and it doesn’t take a Rabbi in Israel to “sanctify” the Word of  God that all will understand through the direction of the Holy Spirit, as they are foolishness to the carnal man, but wisdom to us who are saved by grace, as they a spiritually discerned.


Luke {21:25} "And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; {21:26} Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken".

Here Luke records the words of our Lord, when the disciples came to Him and asked when the end of the age would happen and signs of His coming. What are these signs Jesus was speaking of and do they have any significance to what we are studying? We will see that may be just the case. But notice further on in the chapter Jesus said this to them, and to us:

{21:34} "And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. {21:35} For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. {21:36} Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man."

We are to be ever alert and watchful, as the signs of His appearing will be all around us. Jesus alerted us that there will be signs in the heavens that were present that announced His first visitation, and will there be signs that will be present on His second coming at the end of the age of grace? Matthew 16:

"He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, [It will be] fair weather: for the sky is red.
{16:3} And in the morning, [It will be] foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowring. O [ye] hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not [discern] the signs of the times?"

As it was in the beginning found in Genesis chapter 1 that the sun, moon and stars would be signs in the heavens for season, signs, and years:
{1:14} "And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:"

....So it will be in the end, that God will use His creation to signal to His people the signs of His coming and the end of the age.
Let us focus for a moment on the opening scripture that is quoted from Joel. Joel writes that the sun will be “darkened”. Joel restates this very thing in a following verse in the 3rd chapter,
{3:15} "The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shining."

Looking to the Strong’s Concordance, we look up the meaning of these words meaning darkened, or darkness. We find in one of the verses the Hebrew word chosehek, Strongs #2822 means the dark, darkness, or figuratively, misery, destruction, death, ignorance, sorrow, night or obscurity. The other word is Strongs #6937 “qadar” to mean dark colored, sackcloth, be black, to make dark meaning no light. Is there coming a day in the past that made the sun become black and no light, and that falls anywhere near a prophetic feast day, that we have determined could be the day the Lord says He would return? In the secular, they are called “solar eclipses” either partial or total. When the sun is covered either in part or total, the moon receiving it’s light from the sun, turns reddish in color, depending on what part of the world you are viewing it from called a “Blood Moon”.

If we go to NASA, a secular authority that tracks these solar and lunar eclipses, we find that they have a complete listing of the eclipses that have happened and the ones that will be coming in the future. NASA identifies these as Blood Moon Tetrads, or four consecutive lunar eclipses that group together. There have only been two in the last century and they came on dates that are associated with prophetic events concerning Israel.  The first set of lunar eclipses were in 1949 and 1950 that are associated with the formation of Israel as a nation. Their birth was 1948, but the government was not established until 1949. Those events happened in April and October of 1949, and April and September of 1950. The other event surrounded the recapturing of Jerusalem in 1967 or the Six Day War. Those eclipses were in April and October of each year of 1967 and 1968 also known as Passover and Feast of Tabernacles, or Sukkoth. These can be viewed as  prophetic markers in the sky that pointed to a completion of God’s promise to restore Israel and Jerusalem to the Jewish people. How common are these Blood Moon Tetrads, and the complete lunar eclipses of four in a row? Quite rare, as it had not happened in the past before 1949, except in 1493, and will happen only one other time left  in this century and will not happen again for 500 years. I’d would call that rare.


As we have learned, there have been two blood moon tetrads in the last century, but notice our last lesson that Jesus made a clue that pointed to a feast day of His return? None of these last blood moon tetrads fell on what Jesus alluded to as the prophetic day in the Hebraic calendar we have determined to possibly be the Feast of Trumpets and the Lord’s return. Is there another total eclipse coming in the near future that does fall on these feast days? Yes...there is. According to NASA there was another set of lunar eclipses coming up in 2014 and 2015 past. Why is this significant? In 2014 these eclipses fall on April and October, 2014 which so happens to be again, Passover and Tabernacles of that year. Again it will happen in 2015 on yet another Holy Day of Passover and Tabernacles in April and September. But remember, Joel said that the Day of the Lord would happen AFTER these signs are shown.

"The sun shall be turned into darkness, and
the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of
the LORD come”. Joel 2:31

So we see that the Lord may be saying that He won't come in 2014 or 2015, as the signs or Blood Moon Tetrads have not been completed, but that's not in concrete, as God can do pretty much what He wants to do, apart from what man thinks He meant. The next Feast of Trumpets will be October 2nd-October 3, 2016 and a possible sign of His return (We watch and pray). This is also the end of a generation after Israel became a nation, and also the end of a 50 year Jubilee or the end of a generation as previously discussed.

But there's more, there was also a total eclipses on the beginning of the Hebrew calendar on March 20th, 2015, and again the very next year on March 9th, 2016, also the beginning of the Hebrew Calendar year. These are both on a new moon of both years and NASA says that will be total eclipses. Another point is that on the year of the Feast of Trumpets there will be a partial solar eclipses on the very day. A very rare occurrence to say the least.

What are the chances of this happening on these exact days in our past, and our future...? The answer is NEVER. It has never happened in the past, and it will never happen in our lifetime and won’t happen again at all for 100 years! Coincidence? I don’t think so. But remember, we observe that the Lord has completed His first advent on the exact feast days found in the spring, and it bears note that He will most likely, follow suit to complete the fall observances, as well. Could these signs in the sun, moon and the stars proclaim the coming of the Lord on a future Feast of Trumpets? It bears much study and prayer, waiting and watching for further signs. But again, I make no claim that these are facts indisputable and I am not infallible, but only reporting what God has shown me and others that may be coming upon the earth.


When Daniel had revealed to him what was to come upon the earth, in Daniel beginning on chapter 9, Daniel inquired of God when will this all come to pass. What did God say to the prophet? Daniel 12:8,

"And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my Lord, what [shall be] the end of these [things?]{12:9} And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words [are] closed up and sealed till the time of the end."

These signs were quite concerning for the prophet and he inquired of their fulfillment and was told the signs of the times would be sealed until the time of the end. Knowing full well that the signs are all around us, I believe the signs are being opened up to us to understand. I’m amazed at how many ministers are becoming aware of these signs in the heavens that are possible signs to the coming of our Lord. Do we get any of this wrong? None of us are infallible, but each minister takes his interpretation and prayerfully ask the Holy Spirit to lead them into all truth. Do we all agree? Not on everything, as this minister believes that the coming signs point to a pre-tribulation removal of the church before the beginning of Jacob’s trouble. Why do I say that? Some make a distinction of the Day of the Lord and the beginning of the Tribulation to be two separate events. I'm a believer that when the church is removed, God's wrath will begin falling on this rebellious earth we live upon. Both have one thing in common and that is God’s wrath. But we are not the focus of God’s wrath, as God told Isaiah that He would punish the world for it’s wickedness but the people of God would be hidden away.

Isaiah 26,
{26:19} "Thy dead [men] shall live, [together with] my dead
body shall they arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust:
for thy dew [is as] the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast
out the dead.
{26:20} Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers,
and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a
little moment, until the indignation be overpast. {26:21}

For, behold, the LORD cometh out of his place to punish
the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also
shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain."


2nd Corinthians:
{13:1} "This [is] the third [time] I am coming to you. In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established."

There are more witnesses than even this, if we follow what the bible tells us about the end of days...witness #1, Jesus said,
Matthew 24,
"Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. {24:35} Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away."

Taking our Lord literally, we know that a generation is 70 years for man, 80 by strength. Psalms 90,
90:10} “The days of our years [are] threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength [they be] fourscore years, yet [is] their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away”

When Jesus was on earth He said that this generation would not pass, as noted in the above verses, but also identified in His Word that a generation is 70-80  years. I believe that time clock started ticking away again when Israel became a nation according to the parable of the fig tree.
Matthew 24,
"Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet
tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is
nigh: {24:33} So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these
things, know that it is near, [even] at the doors. {24:34}
Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all
these things be fulfilled. {24:35} Heaven and earth shall
pass away, but my words shall not pass away."

As we have studied in the past, Israel is that fig tree and she bloomed once again, according to prophecy, in 1948 when she became a nation declared by David Ben-Gurion and ratified by the UN charter, that the 70 year time clock began once again. That generation who saw that fulfillment would see the Lord’s return.
Witness #2.
The liberation of Jerusalem in the Six Day War of 1967 began the countdown for the year of Jubilee. What is the  year of Jubilee? It is the definition of property rights and land ownership, the freeing of slaves, but more importantly is the beginning and end of the generation. I take you to the definition found in Strongs #1755 and the Hebrew word “dowr", which describes the meaning of the Jubliee as “ period, generation, dwelling, age and  habitation" If you take the capturing of Jerusalem and returning it to the Jewish people and the nation of Israel from 1967-1968, adding 50 years, you come to the end of that generation....that is also the end of the length of a generation according to Psalm and they both fall in the year 2017.
Witness #3
Last clue to the end of a generation, is the coming Blood Moon Tetrads that fall on a Feast of Tabernacles on2014 and 2015 .
Can all these clues be pure coincidence? The possibility of this of this occurrence by chance is unfathomable. It it is impossible in the human realm for all these clues to be colliding with one another.


We have established the premise that Jesus was giving the disciples an “idiom” that pointed to His telling them that He would return on a future Feast Day of Trumpets some time in the next two thousand years which is our time.
We have established that all things are connected to Israel and surround her as the key to prophetic events past, present and future, if you have been following any of my sermons from the past.
We have established that there are literally witness after witness that points to a generation being fulfilled in the year 2017-2018.
And the cap on the stone, is the signs of the sun and the moon that were given as signs in the heavens that Jesus said would be occurring just before the “Day of the Lord” We know that the day of the Lord begins in chapter 6 of Revelation, as this is when God’s wrath is falling about the heads of earth dwellers...

Revelation chapter 6,
{6:12} "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; {6:13} And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.

{6:14} And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled
together; and every mountain and island were moved out of
their places. {6:15} And the kings of the earth, and the great
men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the
mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid
themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;
{6:16} And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and
hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and
from the wrath of the Lamb: {6:17} For the great day of his
wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?"

This signals the beginning of the Day of Wrath, the Day of the Lord’s wrath  upon the earth. It begins an awful times of gloom, death and destruction.
Zephaniah, chapter 1, starting v. 15,
"That day [is] a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of
wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and
gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness, {1:16} A
day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities, and
against the high towers. {1:17} And I will bring distress
upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they
have sinned against the LORD: and their blood shall be
poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung."

This day begins with the opening of the first seal in chapter 6 and continues unabated until God sends His seventh angel with the vial or bowl  judgment to pour out His vengeance from the cup of His indignation without mixture, meaning full strength.
To bring this time of judgment, the church looks for a sign of hope, of blessings, and the fulfillment of God’s promise to His true church.
Revelation chapter 3,
“{3:10} Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. {3:11} Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown."

Finally, brethren, lastly take one last look at the coming signs that have been forecast and prophesied by men, and by God respectively.
Any of the  following and what is addressed above does not mean that the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ will definitely occur in what I have taught here, as they are signs that show that the time is close, right at the door. But to pinpoint a date, as some have done, is not in our knowledge. Only the Father knows for sure and it is in His authority to show it to His saints and His ministers.  What the above taken as a whole does show is a pattern of how God has been working up to this time and what the signs are coming in the near future.  If that is the case one could see the following table in conclusion:
-The first Tetrad was in 1493-1494 and heralded the Jewish Dispersion from Spain and the Jews were scattered. (note, Columbus discovered America on this date or a future home of the Jewish Dispersion)
-the Second Tetrad of 1949-1950 heralded the Israel becoming a nation and the regathering of the Jews to their homeland.
-The Third Tetrad of 1967-1967 ushered in Israel regaining control of Jerusalem and recapturing the Temple Mount.
-The Fourth Tetrad coming in 2014-2015 point to a major event for Israel. 

 Lastly, we have identified that 2016 and 2017 is the only date for another 500 years that will have this prophesied sign in the heavens to proclaim the coming of the Lord on the Feast of Trumpets.


My reader, you have been given the evidence. You can search the internet and your bible to prove what you have read is truth. God is speaking to all who will listen. But make no mistake about one thing...Jesus is coming, very soon. In what year and what Feast of Trumpets, we do not know.  It is a wise man who calls himself a Christian to get his house in order. Do not let the Lord find you ashamed on that day or standing naked and caught unawares.
To the fence sitter and the unrepentant, today is the day of salvation. There may be no other chance for you in this life to do so.
2nd Corinthians:
{6:1} "We then, [as] workers together [with him,] beseech [you] also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain.
{6:2} (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold,
now [is] the accepted time; behold, now [is] the day of salvation.)"

Do not reject so great a salvation as to do so will condemn  you for all eternity.
1st Peter:
{1:4} "To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away,  reserved in heaven for you, {1:5}Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time."

Do not refuse the calling of the Holy Spirit, as He calls you today, even as you read this. Prove all things to yourself. Reach out to Him who is able to free you from this sinful world and bring you to a place that He wants to put your name there, and spend all eternity in the light of His glory.

A day is fast approaching, a day of gloom, darkness and incredible sadness for all who have rejected the free offering of His grace by accepting the sacrifice of His Son on a cruel Roman cross to be a substitution of the penalty that each of us deserve...death! But He wishes to make you alive in Christ Jesus. Won’t you take that opportunity right now. You are promised only today to live your life, right now..tomorrow might be too late.
"And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to theblood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than [that of] Abel. {12:25} See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more [shall not] we [escape,] if we turn away from him that [speaketh] from heaven: {12:26} Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven. {12:27} And this [word,] Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.
Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved,let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear: {12:29} For our God [is] a consuming fire."

For COMING tomorrow soon, a coming day of redemption for all who believe in God’s only Begotten Son, and to those who reject Him, The wrath of God and the coming Day of the Lord!

This is pastor Mike Taylor, praying God’s salvation through His Son, Jesus Christ be found in your life today. If you need counseling, prayer, or just a listening ear, email me here at,  God bless you all during the final days of the End of the Age

Hello there Mike Taylor!

In your commentary, (the one that is titled, "Blood Moon Rising -- Day of the Lord"), you say the following:

"So we know that the Lord can't come in 2014 or 2015, as the signs or blood moon tetrads have not been completed."

Mike, when you say that "the Lord can't come in 2014 or 2015" you are NOT talking about the Rapture of the Church, are you?

I DO hope that you believe that the Rapture of the Church could take place **at any moment**, maybe even here in 2013!

Please reply to back me here and briefly tell me what you meant to say in that commentary.

Thank you, my brother!
02/26/2013 2:33am
I believe the Lord God can come on any day He wishes to come. Who am I to say He is limited? But the point of the study was to take scripture and try and determine what He was saying to us. I believe He is saying that He will follow what He has done in the past. He has fulfilled His Spring Holy days to the letter. Why would we think He would not complete His fall days in like fashion?

It seems to reason knowing that God is a God of order. If He stays true to what He has done in the past, then looking at the signs in the heavens that are coming in 2014-2015 gives us a big clue that there is something coming associated with Israel, based on past moon tetrads...what will happen around these days are conjecture on our part, trying to interpret what He meant. To say that He can't do something is limiting God, so my statement is probably a little erroneous, but is pointing to a day or set of dates post blood moon tetrads that would fulfill His past appearance on THE feast day He ordained as a sign of the coming of the King, followed by the Tribulation noted as days between Trumpets and Atonement. The second coming of His reign and rule to fall on that very day. We will keep the Feast of Tabernacles per Zechariah 14 in His 1000 year reign, as He is with us, and commanded us to worship Him on His Holy Days of Tabernacles during that reign.

The aforementioned days (blood moon tetrads), COULD mean the beginning of the coming wrath of God on this world beginning, and the scenario that I am entertaining, is that one of the feast days of 2016 forward could be the day to expect Him concrete? No, I'm not God, but I'm giving all who will listen a heads up, so to speak, that the time is at hand and we all must be making preparations to make ready. Get right with God now through believing on the only Way back to the Father, through His Son, Jesus Christ. God bless you,

Hi Pastor Mike

One of us is reading the NASA charts wrong. I won't rule out it is me, but your dates are accurate but just incomplete. Here is what I found using the NASA Eclipse website:

“NASA identifies these as Blood Moon Tetrads…”

NASA doesn’t call them Blood Moon Tetrads. Just tetrads.

“There have only been two in the last century…”

There have been five in the last century. 1909-1910. 1927-1928. 1949-1950. 1967-1968. 1985-1986.

“How common are these Blood Moon Tetrads, and the complete lunar eclipses of four in a row? Quite rare, as it had not happened in the past before 1949, except in 1493,….”

There were six in 1501-1600, four in 1401-1500. From 1400- year 0, there have been 30. From 1400 to 2000 BC there've been about 100. Still rare, but has definitely happened in the past with some frequency.

“… and will happen only one other time left in this century and will not happen again for 500 years”

There will be 8 in this century, 4 in 2101-2200, none in 2201-2400, and 4 in 2401-2500. That gives us 16 tetrads in the next 500 years, eight not including this century's set of tetrads.

Hi Dan, Mike was talking about only the Tetrads that happens on the Passover and Feast of Tabernacles that there were two this century not counting 2014-2015. I am so looking forward to the one this month on Sunday Sept. 27, I just might have to throw a blood moon party lol. Shalom

reprinted by Permission:
Blood Red Moons - Lunar Eclipses, Solar Eclipses , Meteor Storm, Comets, Earthquakes, Famines, Pestilence, Seas Roaring, Wars and Rumors of Wars – Signs of Christ’s Return all happening in our very near future.

Matthew Chapter 16:3 – Jesus tells believers we should discern the signs of the times.
3 "And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowering. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?"

God appointed feasts to coincide with the New Moon and has used signs in the heavens many times throughout history to announce His glory and plans for mankind 
Numbers 10:10 "Also at your times of rejoicing—your appointed festivals and New Moon feasts—you are to sound the trumpets over your burnt offerings and fellowship offerings, and they will be a memorial for you before your God. I am the LORD your God.”

Eyes glaze over when you mention any information on end times events or predictions. This is the result of men, over time, running around saying the end is near. Many men have even claimed to know the exact day or hour of the return of Christ. The shouts of the end were many times followed by a book deal or a TV show. However the study of the Bible is a highly technical task. The study of history compared to Biblical prophecy is banned in schools today. Even the history of the United States has been altered.

God provided signs that men and Satan could not change that point to the season of the end times. In this case the upcoming Tetrad of blood moons could point to one of the signs given in the bible of the season of the end times.
Red (Blood) Moon -Total lunar eclipses often make the moon appear red.
A World Net Daily story on Blood Moons brought the information into mainstream prophecy news.

How Does it all Add Up Blood-red moons on the first day of Passover and the first day of Sukkot on back-to-back years has occurred seven times since 1 A.D. Three of these occurrences were connected to 1492 (the Spanish Inquisition), 1948 (statehood for Israel and the War of Independence), and 1967 (the Six-Day War) — some of the most significant days in Jewish history.

The Gregorian calendar can vary by weeks from year to year. But, by the Hebrew calendar, the dates for each festival are rigid. Passover (or Pesach) begins on the 15th day of the month of Nisan, and Sukkot on the 15th of Tishrei.
A rare event will occur in 2014 and 2015 of four consecutive total lunar eclipses, known as a tetrad. A solar eclipse separates them on the Jewish New year.
During this century, tetrads occur at least six times, but what’s interesting is that the only string of four consecutive blood moons that coincide with God’s holy days of Passover in the spring and the autumn’s Feast of Tabernacles occurs between 2014 and 2015 on today’s Gregorian calendar.

In this millennium only 3 tetrads happened on Jewish feast days of Passover and Tabernacles:
1492 – Jews expelled from Spain the Spanish Inquisition
1948 – Israel came back into existence as a Nation
1967 – Israel captures Jerusalem in the 6 day war
2014 - ???
There were no tetrads in the 1800s, the 1700s, the 1600s. In the 1500s, there were six, but none of those fell on Passover and Feast of Tabernacles or any feast days.
Solar eclipses happen on the first day of the Hebrew year and the next on the high holy day of Rosh Hashanah, the first day of the seventh Hebrew month. Both of these take place in the 2014-2015 years.
In 2015 the religious year is beginning with the total solar eclipse, two weeks later a total lunar eclipse on Passover, and then the civil year beginning with the solar eclipse followed two weeks later by another total blood red moon on the Feast of Tabernacles all in 2015.
We also see from the Greek writings that the blood moon sign happened when Jesus was crucified also:

Report of Pontius Pilate:

And him Herod and Archelaus and Philip, Annas and Caiaphas, with all the people, delivered to me, making a great uproar against me that I should try him. I therefore ordered him to be crucified, having first scourged him, and having found against him no cause of evil accusations or deeds.
And at the time he was crucified there was darkness over all the world, the sun being darkened at mid-day, and the stars appearing, but in them there appeared no luster; and the moon, as if turned into blood, failed in her light.

The Death of Jesus - Solar Eclipse and Earthquake

Matthew 27
45 "From noon until three in the afternoon darkness came over all the land. 46About three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eli, Eli,[c] lema sabachthani?” (which means “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”).[d]
47When some of those standing there heard this, they said, “He’s calling Elijah.”
48 Immediately one of them ran and got a sponge. He filled it with wine vinegar, put it on a staff, and offered it to Jesus to drink. 
49 The rest said, “Now leave him alone. Let’s see if Elijah comes to save him.”
50  And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit.
51  At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook, the rocks split 52 and the tombs broke open. The bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. 53 They came out of the tombs after Jesus’ resurrection and[e] went into the holy city and appeared to many people.
54  When the centurion and those with him who were guarding Jesus saw the earthquake and all that had happened, they were terrified, and exclaimed, “Surely he was the Son of God!”

The Jubilee Connection:

Seven sets of seven years @ 360 days per year from June 7, 1967 when Israel entered Jerusalem is exactly 17,640 days to Sept. 23, 2015 on the Day of Atonement, which is the day to usher in the Jubilee year–the 50th year. 2015 is also a Sabbatical year that occurs once every seven years.
This Tetrad of blood moons on the first and last days of the 7 feasts 4 times in a row won’t happen again for centuries.
*1965-66 (this was 7th Shmita/49th year, following year 1966-67 is Jubilee) Israel captures Jerusalem in 6 day war.
*2014-15 (this will be 7th Shmita/49th year, following year 2015-16 is Jubilee) based on 360 day Hebrew years

Biblical References:

The Bible never states that the blood moons are the “Day of the Lord” or any “Rapture”. It states that it is a sign that the coming of the Lord is near. You are actual told: But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only
Matthew 24:36
37  "As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. 
38 For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; 
39 and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. 
40 Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left. 41 Two women will be grinding with a hand mill; one will be taken and the other left.
42 “Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. 
43 But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. 44 So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him."

Joel 2:31
31"The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come."
Revelation 6:12~14
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; 
13 And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. 
14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places."

Luke 21: 25~28
25 "And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; 
26 Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. 
27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 
28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh."

Mark 13:24~25
24 "
But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, 
25 And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken. 
26 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory."
Acts 2:20
20 "The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come:"

The Destruction of the Temple and Signs of the End Times

Matthew Chapter 24:

 "Jesus left the temple and was walking away when his disciples came up to him to call his attention to its buildings. 
2 “Do you see all these things?” he asked. 'Truly I tell you, not one stone here will be left on another; every one will be thrown down.'
3 As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately. “Tell us,” they said, “when will this happen, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?”
4 Jesus answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you. 
5 For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many. 
6 You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. 
7 Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. 
8 All these are the beginning of birth pains.
Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me.  
10 At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, 
11 and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. 12 Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, 
13 but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. 
14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.
15 “So when you see standing in the holy place ‘the abomination that causes desolation,’[a] spoken of through the prophet Daniel—let the reader understand— 
16 then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. 
17 Let no one on the housetop go down to take anything out of the house. 
18 Let no one in the field go back to get their cloak. 
19 How dreadful it will be in those days for pregnant women and nursing mothers! 
20 Pray that your flight will not take place in winter or on the Sabbath. 
21 For then there will be great distress, unequaled from the beginning of the world until now—and never to be equaled again.
22 “If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive, but for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened. 
23 At that time if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Messiah!’ or, ‘There he is!’ do not believe it. 
24 For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. 
25 See, I have told you ahead of time.
26 “So if anyone tells you, ‘There he is, out in the wilderness,’ do not go out; or, ‘Here he is, in the inner rooms,’ do not believe it. 
27 For as lightning that comes from the east is visible even in the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. 
28 Wherever there is a carcass, there the vultures will gather.
29 “Immediately after the distress of those days“‘the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light;the stars will fall from the sky, and the heavenly bodies will be shaken.’[b]
30 “Then will appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven. And then all the peoples of the earth[c] will mourn when they see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory.[d]
 31 And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.
32 “Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near. 
33 Even so, when you see all these things, you know that it[e] is near, right at the door. 
34 Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened. 
35 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away."

The Day and Hour Unknown

36 “But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son,[f] but only the Father. 
37 As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.
38 For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; 
39 and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. 
40 Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left. 41 Two women will be grinding with a hand mill; one will be taken and the other left.
42 “Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. 
43 But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. 
44 So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.
45 “Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom the master has put in charge of the servants in his household to give them their food at the proper time? 
46 It will be good for that servant whose master finds him doing so when he returns. 
47 Truly I tell you, he will put him in charge of all his possessions. 48 But suppose that servant is wicked and says to himself, ‘My master is staying away a long time,’ 
49 and he then begins to beat his fellow servants and to eat and drink with drunkards. 
50 The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of. 
51 He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the hypocrites, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth."
Let see what other signs are happening at the same time!

Comets! – Signs in the Heavens

By late November it will be visible to the unaided eye just after dark in the same direction as the setting Sun. Its tail could stretch like a searchlight into the sky above the horizon. Then it will swing rapidly around the Sun, passing within two million miles of it, far closer than any planet ever does, to emerge visible in the evening sky heading northward towards the pole star. It could be an "unaided eye" object for months. When it is close in its approach to the Sun it could become intensely brilliant but at that stage it would be difficult and dangerous to see without special instrumentation as it would be only a degree from the sun. Remarkably Ison might not be the only spectacular comet visible next year. Another comet, called 2014 L4 (PanSTARRS), was discovered last year and in March and April it could also be a magnificent object in the evening sky. 2013 could be the year of the great comets.

Meteor Storm! – Stars fall from the sky

The predictions are still rough, but three different models suggest the sky show could be spectacular. "All the trails ejected between 1803 and 1924 cross Earth's path in May 2014," notes Jérémie Vaubaillon (IMCEE, France). "As a consequence, this shower might as well be a storm," with the potential to see more than 1,000 meteors per hour under ideal conditions.

Earthquakes: - 400% increase since 2001

The Bible speaks of earthquakes happening in diverse, (different), places when the end of time is approaching. It has many other warnings also, but specifically, it speaks of earthquakes. Matthew 24:7, Mark 13:8, and Luke 21:11, to be specific, are passages in the Bible that speak of earthquakes in reference to the end of time.
Luke 21:11, clearly says there will be great earthquakes, famines, and pestilences, in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven.
These earthquakes have been powerful enough to actually shift the Earth’s axis changing weather patterns and the Jet Stream causing the Major Shifts in our weather patterns.

Time Shortened by Earthquakes!

1.Chile earthquake registered 8.8 magnitude on the Richter scale and the axis about which the Earth’s mass is balanced should have moved by 2.7 milliarcseconds (about 8 centimeters or 3 inches).”
2. In comparison, the 2004 Sumatran quake of magnitude 9.1 shortened the day by 6.8 microseconds and shifted the axis by about 2.3 milliarcseconds.
3. The 9.0 magnitude earthquake that ravaged Japan moved Japan coast 8 feet also shortened Earth's day by just over one-millionth of a second (1.8 microseconds to be exact), according to NASA. It also shifted the Earth's axis by about 6.5 inches.

Wars and Rumors of Wars:

The Bible identifies 9 Future Wars in the Middle East ending with the return of Jesus to the Mount of Olives. ....
1) The War of Extermination — Psalm 83
2) The First War of Gog & Magog —Ezekiel 38 and 39
3) The Conventional War of the Tribulation — Revelation 6
4) The Nuclear War of the Tribulation — Revelation 8 & 9
5) The War in the Heavens — Revelation 12
6) The War against the Jews and the Saints — Revelation 12
7) The Middle East Campaign of the Antichrist — Daniel 11
8) The Battle of Armageddon — Joel 3, Zechariah 14, and Revelation 19
9) The Second Battle of Gog & Magog — Revelation 20

In these series of wars 2/3 of the population of the world will die. All of these wars will happen within a short span of time and we are going to see the start of these events unfold with Israel and Iran going at it very soon. Pray up - Look up for your redemption draws very near!

Christian Persecution and put to Death:

Christians around the world, especially in Muslim countries are heavily persecuted and put to death. Even America has anti-Christian groups that continually try to cover up our true heritage and remove any references to God, Christ, The Bible, Prayers and The Cross from places they were established for decades and centuries. They just recently have beheaded and crucified Christians in Egypt and other “Arab Spring” countries and no reports in the American Press. Churches bombed and burned, Christians murdered while in Church services, Houses and property destroyed or confiscated by Muslims all doing it for their false god Allah. Never let anyone say that Muslims and Christians serve the same god as Allah and Yahweh have nothing in common.

Jesus clearly says that no one will know the day or the hour but that we would know the season. The 5 wise virgins had their lamps full and were ready for the wedding feast.
Every sign that Jesus said would be present at His return is happening around the world with a frequency that has greatly intensified to levels never seen before.
The people in Noah’s day knew that they had 120 years to enter the ark. They knew when the 120 years was drawing to an end. But they did not know the hour or the day that the door to the ark would be closed. They did not know when their last opportunity would come to enter the ark.
Some of the people may have thought that if it started to rain then they would go into the ark. But by the time the rain started it was too late. The door to the ark had already been shut and no on
e else could go in.
This is Pastor Mike Taylor sending out a warning that the time is growing short until the return of our Lord Jesus. If you need prayer, counseling, or just a listening ear, email me at God bless you all,

A further reinforcement to you fine article on Blood Moon Rising is found in the Book of Ruth, the study of which I just completed. Boaz, of course, represents Jesus Christ, Ruth, represents the Church, and Naomi, the State of Israel in End Time prophecy. The "Gleanings by Ruth in the fields is a picture of the Church saving the last few souls before the Rapture, then the marriage of Boaz and Ruth (the Wedding Supper of the Lamb) and on and on. But what really struck me like a bolt of lightning is the 49 days (prophetic years) which occur between the Barley Harvest (First Fruits) and the Wheat Harvest (Pentecost), or 50 days (years) on a year of Jubilee. Israel did not truly become a nation until she liberated Jerusalem in 1967. So, do the math. Add 49, or 50 years to 1967 and you get 2016, or 2017. Incredible how it is all coming together.
