September and October 2017 Bible Prophecy Developments

September 2017 and October 2017 Bible Prophecy Developments


This is a look forward to September 2017 and October 2017 in Bible Prophecy terms to see what is on the horizon at that time. As always plenty of theories are floating around in Prophetic circles for that time period which coincides every year with some of the major Jewish festivals,and what could possibly happening around about that time?

This is not a date setting article in any shape or form, but aims to increase awareness of what could POSSIBLY be on the horizon later this year and the dates mentioned below are certainly worth putting in your diary or on your phone. A lot of things have started appearing on the Prophecy timeline before or on or around the October 2017 date and continues a trend of the September and October months to be harbingers in prophecy terms in years past.

These are a list of events taking place and leading up to October 2017 that have a prophetic ring to them or are of some significance in Prophecy Terms

1. June 2017 50th Anniversary of the Reunification of Jerusalem
2. August 2017 Major Solar Eclipse US (will also affect UK)
2. 20 September 2017 End Jubilee Year
3. 21/22 September 2017 Ross Hashana Jewish New Year
4. 23 September 2017 The Sign of the Woman see video and article Rev 12:1-2
5. 30 September 2017 Yom Kippur. The Day of Atonement
6. 5-6 October 2017 Sukhot The Feast of Tabernacles
7. 7-11 October 2017 Sukhot The Feast of Tabernacles
8. 5 October 2017 The Rescue of the Bride?
9. 5 October 2017 The sign of the Red Dragon Rev 12:3-4 See
10. 12 October Predicted Nibiru Planet X Catastrophe? (According to You Tube?)

Every year around September and October time there are a bizarre course of events that seem to occur and always seem to coincide with the major Jewish festivals that take place at that time of year which is Rosh Hashana (Jewish New Year), Yom Kippur (The Day of Atonement) and Sukhot (The Feast of Taberbnacles). The recent and rare Tetrad of Four Blood Red Moons on Jewish Holy Days being a case in point.

2017 is no different but the Re-unification of Jerusalem by Israel in 1967 being celebrated in June 2017 is a significant event and coincides with the Jubilee Year that ends on 20 September 2017. In between those two major dates there is a major Solar Eclipse that takes place in August 2017 that will throw much of the US in darkness and will also affect us here in the UK.

The Sign of the Woman which is an extraordinary large number of planets in alignment that will be occurring on 23 September 2017 which this website did an article on and also a video going into greater detail. This planetary alignment also coincides with the Daniels 70th Week Prophecy mentioned in Daniel 9:24-27. This theory seems to be gaining traction on the web, many are saying it could be a possible Rapture point, but again this is a form of date setting which The Twelve Gates is not keen on (they never seem to come to fulfilment) but it is an incredibly interesting theory none the less.

Another date that seems to be doing the prophetic theory rounds but in much smaller circles is 5 October 2017 being billed as the "Rescue of the Bride". This is not a prophecy or theory that this website subscribes to, but it is an interesting one none the less and coincides with the Jewish Festival of The Feast of Tabernacles down to the last day which adds some weight to that date. Also from the same website they are saying The Sign of the Dragon is also on the same day mentioned in Revelation 12:3-4. Some tie this up with the arrival of Nibiru Planet X and as always there a a multitude of other theories.

Further details at the October-5-2017 website


Finally a date of 12 October 2017 seems to be emerging, the date of a potential Nibiru, Planet X catastrophe and our planet. This seem to be gaining traction over at You Tube? I can't see any confirmation anywhere else so it's being put out there as a "take with a pinch of salt". Again be aware of the date but also be aware of the source. If more concrete evidence surfaces then it will be here. In the meantime hear my views on Nibiru at this video.

In summary we have seen all these predictions many times before and as always nothing ever happens but there a couple here that I think have some credibility to them so they have been included.

Please note none of these prophecies that are contained within this article are my prophecies or predictions, they come from other sources so I cannot vouch for their authenticity. They are for reference and awareness purposes only. Always check everything against the word.

Cashless Payment Systems Headlines in 2017 and Bible Prophecy?

Cashless Payment Systems and Bible Prophecy?


Cashless Payment Systems and the Cashless Society is gaining momentum in many countries around the globe. Checking News Feeds in 2017 recently reveals a huge increase in the keyword "Cashless" coming up in the global headlines,. With many countries starting to increasingly adopt cashless forms of payment either in preference to cash OR as the only form of payment available when this new form of payment is introduced.

This article is a follow on article from previous articles that skim the surface of the emerging cashless society or my personal experience with it, and looks at the latest emerging headlines around the globe and where we are heading in the not too distant future.

Cashless Payments Around the Globe
London has adopted cashless on it's public transport system including TheTube. The Buses were the latest in 2014, which has led to other transport companies following the same route outside of London.

Sweden is currently the world leader with most transactions being conducted via cashless means. In 2015, cash transactions formed a miniscule 2% of all value payments in Sweden. Swish is by far the most popular of the payment apps that allow realtime transfer of money in between people in Sweden. It is used by more than 50% of the population making over 9 million payments a month.

India is increasingly going down the cashless route with the Indian Government forcefully introducing the system (s) and making the world headlines as a result, many are saying that India is a test case being monitored by the US? In November, India’s prime minister, Narendra Modi, introduced a surprise ban on the country’s largest currency bills, 500 and 1,000 rupee in an effort to make cashless payments the more attractive and viable option. It caused chaos as a result. WHY? India is wholly dependent on cash just to tick. Between 90% and 98% of transactions are cash-based. The equivalent figure in Western Europe is 68%. The reason for this cashless payment push by the India’s PM is it's difficult to sustain a black market, or avoid tax, if every transaction leaves a trail, as all electronic transactions do. This in effect kills the black market economy and the associated illegal activity, which in theory means more taxes and revenue in the governments coffers.

In South Korea, only 20% of transactions are cash-based. The plan there is to remove all coins from circulation by 2020. The government is urging consumers to put their small change onto ‘T-Money’ cards — electronic travel passes that can also be used in convenience stores.
In Amsterdam try paying for a coffee in a coffee shop with hard cash, most have gone over to some form of cashless payment system. According to Cafe owners they no longer need bulky tills and tedious visits to the bank and the threat of being robbed has been reduced to zero. (In theory)

Payment methods at present for cashless tend to be either Debit or Credit Card, Contactless Payment Cards, Swipe Cards or other forms of card that will only work with a particular company or service or are done via Apps on Mobile Devices such as Apple Pay and Android Pay. RFID and Biometrics is another emerging form of payment but is still in it's technological infancy but is also gathering pace especially in the US.

Germany is currently at a strange and maybe unintentional logger heads with Brussels who is planning to steam roller cashless payment systems across the Euro Zone. Germany is one of the few countries at present that shows a stubborn loyalty to cash much to the annoyance of the plans of Brussels, with still 80% of transactions conducted using the traditional payment method.

Latest enforced examples
Here's some examples of cashless payments that are being forced onto us whether we like it or not.

Motorway Tolls (Many countries are introducing)
Cashless Airports (China World 1st)
Cashless Public Transport (London and Worldwide)
Cashless Supermarket (Amazon)
Cashless Coffee Shop (Europe)
Road Taxing and Congestion Charging (some countries employing compulsory RFID in cars as a means of monitoring and also payment)

The general consensus seems to be that little resistance is being met by the General public around the world with the introduction of what seems to be compulsory cashless payment only systems. It seems people blindly accept the new circumstances blinded by the benefits and unaware of the information that is given in return.

The touted Cashless Payments benefits?
Obviously the incentive to go cashless means faster payments, shorter queues, no need for bulky wallets, no more queueing in banks or at cash machines, no more bulky and heavy change, shops and other services have less hassle with handling cash and governments state that cashless payments remove the ability for cash to be misused such as in money laundering and terrorist financing purposes, tax evasion, payment of illegal immigrants.....the list goes on. These are the benefits you often see touted which act as a sweetener to adopting any form of cashless payment system. But there is a downside to this often utopian or nirvana billed payment system which in reality is highly skewed towards the Big Brother mentality. While some of the changes may benefit the consumer, there’s little question that they all benefit traders, service providers, and finance houses but it's the Governments ultimately that reap the huge rewards.


The pluses and minuses of Cash
Cash has the important feature of offering anonymity to transactions. Such anonymity may be desired for legitimate reason (e.g. protection of privacy). But, such anonymity can also be misused for money laundering and terrorist financing purposes. The possibility to conduct large cash payments facilitates money laundering and terrorist financing activities because of the difficulty to control cash payment transactions.
Europe has taken the draconian step to remove the €500 note and impose limits on cash transactions in a move to limit the size of cash transactions meaning larger payments have to be made via some form of cashless payment system.

The Dark Side to Cashless Payments Economy. What they don't tell you?
Cashless payments are still a recent form of payment beyond the online world as in the hard world we live in. But if we are heading rapidly towards some sort of New World Order scenario where governments make cash illegal, the need for cash will not disappear. The Governments will just end up creating a black market. If we then end up in a world where there’s no longer any spare change, how do charity collectors or the homeless or beggars on the street or street artists and musicians and small new business set ups get by and those that live on the margins of societies such as gypsies.? Issue them with card readers?
These latest headlines demonstrate that for every new technology there will always be something developed that can hack into that technology and do whatever it wants, and we are still in the very early stages of Cashless Payment Adoption.

How does the Cashless Society fit in with Bible Prophecy?
As stated in many previous articles the Beast System is crucially mentioned in the Bok of Revelation in Revelation 13. What we are seeing developing you could say is just modern day society evolving into it's next technological phase removing the need for cash in our society and moving towards a brighter and braver new world?. Flipping the coin reveals a more conspiracy loaded theory that the cashless payment system is all part of a larger scenario where every detail of our lives will be recorded and monitored. The Cashless Payment System is just another form of Surveillance.
It's the way it seems to be forcibly introduced in some countries by mainly Governments, with very little say or input from the public at large, seems to suggest that the benefits that cashless brings to the man on the street is far outweighed by the benefits that a cashless system brings to major institutions and ultimately Central Governments in their ability to monitor our every move. There seems to ultimately be a darker side to this cashless payment system that most who adopt it are not really aware of but choose to ignore the consequences in order to gain the hip and cool benefits.
Those who are unable or unwilling to adopt any form of cashless payment system in the utter could become marginalised as a result and as mentioned in Revelation 13:17
And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

So is the cashless payment system possibly the "Mark" mentioned in Revelation 13? Personally I think the Mark is as stated many times before a "spiritual" mark and identifier that will not take the form of say Biometrics or an RFID chip or similar. BUT the Beast System I think will be digital which is what the Cashless Payment system is based on, in some shape or form. What we could be seeing here is the precursor and early stages to a system or society where initially cash becomes illegal then cards or mobile payments will go the same way and some form of compulsory chip or identifier (implantable or not) will become the universal norm. To gain the chip you need to show a religious affiliation to that person mentioned in the Prophetic Revelation 13, so the mark is not the chip itself but the thought (forehead) and actions (hand) that a particular person adopts, the technology is just the means to access the system including Digital ID and Cashless Payment System.

Those who do not worship the Beast which will include Christians (if we are still here) will be denied access to the cashless payment system or any other corresponding ID systems which will result in those people being marginalised and living on the edge of society and having to create their own black market economy. These people would be easy targets for persecution or worse, which is what the system in Revelation 13 is designed to bring about.

So is the emerging Cashless Payment System something to be concerned about. Initially, no the benefits will far outweigh any shortcomings. BUT as more people get onboard it will become apparent further down the line that we have just subjected ourselves to yet another measure of surveillance just like cookies on websites, and returning to the more anonymous cash will not be an option!

Is Mystery Babylon Rome, Mecca or the US?

Mystery Babylon in Revelation. Who are the three main candidates?


Who, what or where is Mystery Babylon that was mentioned by St John the Divine in the Book of Revelation Prophecy nearly 2000 years ago? There are many candidates for the title of Mystery Babylon but the main three that come up time and time again and seem to stand the test of time are:

1. Rome, Italy and The Vatican and the Roman Catholic Church
2. Mecca, Saudi Arabia and Islam
3. New York or Washington DC or even maybe LA and/or the US/America.

There is a fourth which is quoted by many and that is Jerusalem and Israel, but this is not up for consideration at this time. The three that will be focused on are the three most consistently popular theories out there that are backed by scripture in various shapes or forms and to varying degrees. These three possiiblities for Mystery Babylon are very different animals indeed, that appear in vastly different locations and embracing totally different cultures. This is yet another topic that results in some extremely heated debate, but which one of these three is it and does the Book of Revelation scripture and Prophecy contain the key to narrow it down very clearly to just one candidate?


This article is a follow on from two previous articles that looked at Who or What Mystery Babylon is.The main body of the research is contained in the video from The Twelve Gates You Tube Channel which appears at the foot and end of this article.

Where Mystery Babylon appears in Scripture.
Mystery Babylon is mentioned in the Book of Revelation in Chapters 17 and 18 and the beginning of Chapter 19, so quite a large portion of Revelation Prophecy is tied up with this entity, which tends to suggest that it is of some significant importance in the Revelation timeline.

Who or What or Where is Mystery Babylon.
The scripture of Revelation makes it quite clear that Mystery Babylon is initially depicted as a woman in the form of a Harlot that rides "The Beast", and the Beast and this Harlot seem to be closely linked. The mention of Mystery Babylon and it's status as a woman is merely symbolic in the earlier stages of the relevant Chapters and is explained in greater detail as the scripture progresses. It is made quite clear that it is not a Woman or even a person, but a location and more to the point a city mentioned as a "Great City". It is also possibly an organisation, establishment or institution or something with religious connotations that is instantly recognised around the world.

The What is Mystery Babylon is the easy part of the puzzle to solve as it is mentioned quite clearly in Revelation Scripture but it is the What and Where is where things are not so clear and where the heated debate starts.

What is Mystery Babylon Bible Verses
These are the verses that clearly state WHAT Mystery Babylon is and a clue is given to where this entity is located. This city has dealings with many nations and the city is located on or near "Seven Mountains" which in some versions of the Bible is mentioned as "Seven Hills"

Rev 17.1 And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgement of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters

Rev 17.9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sitteth.

Rev 17.15 And he saith unto me, The Waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues


What role does Mystery Babylon play in the End Times?
Mystery Babylon plays quite a significant role in End Times Prophecy as it has a devastating effect on Christians as mentioned in the following two verses

Rev 17:6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.

Rev 18:24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.


What are Christians advised to do with regard to Mystery Babylon?
It is made very clear above that Mystery Babylon is an adversary to Christians and "The Church" mentioned in the New Testament many times. So much so that anybody that is part of this Mystery Babylon in any shape or form are advised strongly to leave, otherwise you will be subjected to the same judgement as Mystery Babylon itself. This is a strong indicator that Mystery Babylon could be a False Church which would rule out Islam and Mecca as one of the candidates for Mystery Babylon. As is revealed in the video though, Mecca ticks many boxes in the prophecy contained in Revelation including some interesting cross references, so things are not so clear cut.

Rev 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues

The video below from The Twelve Gates You Tube Channel doesn't claim to have the definitive answer, but it does attempt to make things clearer who this mysterious "Mystery Babylon" is? It really is narrowed down to just two candidates!

Video: Mystery Babylon in Revelation. Is it Rome, Mecca or US?

20 key Bible verses in the Book of Revelation reveal Mystery Babylon is either Rome, Mecca or the US. An in depth study to try to solve the Mystery Babylon puzzle to see who, what and where is Mystery Babylon mentioned in the Bible Prophecy contained in the Book of Revelation. What role does Mystery Babylon play in End Times Prophecy and why it is of significant importance in the Revelation Timeline.

North Korea Latest Headlines

North Korea and the US and the WWIII situation?


The latest on what is happening with the North Korea (King Jom UN) and US (Trump) standoff and it's potential for World War 3. With Trump according to the media sending an Armada of warships to North Korea in response to the escalation of missile tests by the ruler of that country, things looked like they were Heading to a possible World War 3 event, the timing which would have been over the Easter weekend. With all eyes on the media and North Korea over the Easter period, the result has been an almost deafening silence from the media and anywhere else on North Korea.

Recent developments post Easter in the headlines seem to suggest that China seems to be finally acknowledging the seriousness of the potential situation and starting to take steps. Russia has been more pro-active and taking the appropriate actions in view of the escalating North Korea and US face off. Here are the latest headlines emerging over the past few days that shed some light on whether a World War 3 is in the pipeline and a brief explanation of that headline

The US Armada heading to North Korea?
Last week Donald Trump, the US president, said he had ordered an "armada" into the northwest Pacific in a show of force designed to deter North Korea from further missile and nuclear weapons test. The US defence ministry later acknowledged the ships had actually travelled into the Indian Ocean to carry out manoeuvres with Australian forces, and only began their journey north recently. Hence the quietness over Easter when the warships would have arrived.

The suspension of flights from China to North Korea
China's national airline, Air China, announced it was suspending flights from Beijing to the North Korean capital, Pyongyang, from late on Friday, Chinese state broadcaster CCTV said. It did not say why the flights, which operate on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, were being suspended.

Russia starts to move military to it's borders with North Korea.
Russia has moved heavy military equipment towards its border with North Korea amid mounting fears of a military clash between Pyongyang and the United States over the North’s nuclear program. According to news sources Helicopters, Tanks and ground forces have been moved to the Russian Border with North Korea

The recent UN meeting
After a recent UN meeting, in a unanimous statement, the council demanded that North Korea "conduct no further nuclear tests" and said Pyongyang's "illegal missile activities" were "greatly increasing tension in the region and beyond".North Korea carried out a failed missile test on Sunday, a day after displaying missiles at a parade in Pyongyang. A warning that sanctions would be issued if further missile testing were to take place was issued by the UN counsel.

The recent statement from North Korea
The Rodong Sinmun, the official newspaper of the North's ruling Workers' Party, said in an editorial on Thursday: "In the case of our super-mighty preemptive strike being launched, it will completely and immediately wipe out not only US imperialists' invasion forces in South Korea and its surrounding areas but the US mainland and reduce them to ashes,".

Here's the latest updates in the last 24 hours on the North Korea and US situation and headlines that possibly clarify what is going on with North Korea and a potential World War 3 flare up.

There is mention from numerous sources that 25 April 2017 would be the strongest possibility of a new missile test and flash point.

The US and North Korea conflict in Prophecy terms
What started out as a potential situation between the US and North Korea has, as anticipated escalated, sucking in other countries including the two major Super powers of China and Russia. The question that is raised is will China and Russia who are neighbouring nations that have recently forged ties be willing to support a US strike on North Korea when the US relations with both China and Russia are not exactly on the friendliest of terms? As mentioned in a previous US and North Korea article this situation in prophecy terms would tie in very closely with the Prophecy mentioned in the Book of Revelation especially the Second Seal of Revelation known as the Second Horseman of the Apocalypse

Bible Quote:

Revelation 6:3-4
3. And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see.

4. And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.

Latest Third Temple News and Bible Prophecy

What the Third Temple in Jerusalem could look like if it were built?


Something that is constantly watched for is any signs of the building of the Third Temple or anything associated with it, as this is one of the key components to the fulfillment of End Times Bible Prophecy especially that mentioned in Daniel 9:24-27. The possibility of The Third Temple is mentioned many times throughout the Bible in Prophecy terms, in the Old and New Testament. Some interesting headlines have emerged earlier in 2017 and also the run up and over the Easter period,that suggest that there could POSSIBLY be some remote tentative steps being taken towards building a Third Temple in the pipeline but again they could possibly be yet more rumours.

This is a Part 2 and follow on article to a previous in depth article which was written about this Third Temple covering areas such as The History of the Holy Temple, The Importance of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem and The current Status of the Third Temple and it´s requirements and a brief summary of it's Prophecy implications. Further details at "The Building of the Third Temple in Jerusalem. Will Prophecy be fulfilled?". This is essential and recommended reading as a background to this article which is more focused on the relevant numerous Bible verses that mention the building of the Third Temple in some shape or form and also whether there is any emerging prophecy fulfillment within current news headlines in the Jerusalem, Israel area.

Third Temple Construction Problems
The Third Temple is fraught with problems one being the actual location. Many say the exact location is not known but many others say it is where the Muslim Dome of the Rock currently stands. Israelis in general are very secular. They know any attempt to build a third temple where the current Dome of the Rock is located would result in immediate war with the Muslims. Only a handful of ultra-Orthodox Jews have a passion for The Third Temple. Some say a temporary tent like structure or a Tabernacle similar to that which was used in the Times of Moses could achieve the same effect as a purpose built temple and act as a temporary stop gap, but again no headlines or plans for such a structure have yet emerged. The plans for a permanent Third Temple do exist and exist at The Temple Institute Video

What brought this article about is a couple of very small headlines, the type that would be missed by the mainstream media which happened on the run up to Easter, that highlighted that some possible small steps could be surfacing towards the incredibly remote chance of the building of a Third Temple in Jerusalem but they are very small.

1. Sanhedrin Calls on Israel's Greatest Enemy to Follow Tradition and Build Third Temple via Breaking Israel News

2. Israel takes baby step toward rebuilding Temple? via WND

3. Push to rebuild Jerusalem Temple has earth-shaking implications via WND

As mentioned in the previous article there are many problems surrounding the building of the Third Temple but these are the main three.

1. Jews are forbidden from entering any part of the Temple Mount and a declaration was signed in January 2005 confirming this decision.

2. Everything is in place for the building of the Third Temple except the land on which to rebuild it. That area is occupied by the Islamic shrine called the Dome of the Rock.

3. The Muslim world has threatened World War if the Dome of the Rock is destroyed which is on the same site and is one of Islam´s holiest places.

The main problem as can be seen above is the Islamic Dome of the Rock which many say occupies the spot where the first two temples were located and where the "Holiest of Holies" would also have to be. Unless some form of agreement is reached with the Muslim world or some sort of joint collaboration or project to enable the Third temple to be be built then the Dome of the Rock stays where it is, as a very effective block to any further developments in construction terms of the Third Temple. Barring a natural disaster or an earthquake or similar, the Dome of the Rock looks to be here to stay for some time in the foreseeable future.

A recent headline in early April which stated "Temple Mount Activists Sacrifice Lamb In First Passover Reenactment" which was performed in Jerusalem’s Jewish quarter, with hundreds of people watching the ritual, which involved slaughtering the sheep on a public square, sprinkling its blood on a mock altar and then eating the cooked remains in the faithful re-inactment of sacrifices mentioned in the Old Testament. An act that, hasn't been performed since the destruction of the Second Temple in 70AD? A prophetic sign or just wishful thinking? Whether this is a sign of further things to come remains to be seen.

A headline that occurred back in very late 2016 stated "Rabbis Urge Trump, Putin to Help Rebuild Temple in Jerusalem" with the Rabbis stating they see , a modern effort to revive the ancient Jewish religious court

Prof. Rabbi Hillel Weiss, a spokesman for the Sanhedrin stated “The political conditions today, in which the two most important national leaders in the world support the Jewish right to Jerusalem as their spiritual inheritance, is historically unprecedented.”

Letters have been sent apparently to both world leaders from The Sanhedrin. Again whether any of this building materialises remains to be seen, but it would an unprecedented major prophecy fulfillment if this did happen.

Why is the Third Temple so important in Prophecy?
If you are a Christian that believes in a Pre Tribulation Rapture then the building of the Third Temple in Jerusalem is of no concern as those who believe in this will be raptured out before this Temple is completed. BUT if you are a Christian that doesn't believe in the Pre Trib Rapture and need confirmation that we are in the End times, then this is one of the top confirmations that we are indeed living in the last days. The Third Temple is a prime requirement where the "abomination of desolation"(The Anti Christ) will stand and declare himself as God, as predicted by Daniel and St John the Divine in The Book of Revelation (Chapter 13). It is questionable without this Temple, whether this "abomination of desolation" could actually take place, as it is The Temple of God where he stands to actually perform this event or ceremony which from that day forward he takes over the world.

The relevant and infamous Bible verse from Daniel is below.

Daniel 9:27
And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

The confirmation of the Temple of God is mentioned in Revelation 11 which equates to the Third Temple which has yet to be built

Revelation 11:1-2
1. And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.
2. But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.


Summary
If 2017 turns out to miraculously be the year that The Third Temple is built in Jerusalem even as a temporary structure such as a Moses style Tabernacle, that would be a colossal achievement in itself. The Third Temple is a major part of the Prophecy jigsaw puzzle! If the building of a permanent structure along the lines of plans held by the Temple Institute received backing and funding from two major world leaders and it was built where the Dome of the Rock stands now????, that would only be the result of some sort miraculous divine intervention that hasn't been seen for two thousand years and would be a major sign of prophetic significance. All the before mentioned cannot be ruled out especially with the times we live in now. A localised devastating earthquake at the Dome of the Rock or some sort of joint venture with the Muslim community maybe under the CoExist banner are other options for the building of The Third Temple, but it's the small headlines that the mainstream media would probably miss, that will indicate that this Third Temple looks set to fulfill it's role in Bible Prophecy as predicted by Daniel all those thousands of years ago.

Short Summary of the Latest Headlines of interest

Second Coming this Easter?
A headline to ponder over "Easter apocalypse: Claims Bible proves Second Coming of Jesus NEXT WEEK" that has appeared in the Daily Star? Google it to get the link. We have seen this a thousand times before but something for you to form your own opinion over JUST IN CASE it is FACT? The headline states a Prophecy website has predicted the End of the world this Easter and the Second Coming of Jesus. Check the website called "A Trumpet for My People" no link, but thought you may want to be aware of it in view of the recent possible ww3 escalations globally.

North Korea and US Latest

If you missed the Tweet today North Korean Officials are starting to evacuate the Capital of North Korea in preparation for a US attack.

So it looks like that China is now involved.

Have a Happy Easter people!

The possible US and North Korea War and Bible Prophecy?


Trump and King Jom Un and World War 3?

Over the weekend it was announced that the US had sent a number of navy warships to North Korea in connection with the recent missile launches that have been taking place clearly in violation of International Law. That tweet was put out with a link to the relevant story with some concern. At the time, this recently followed just days previously a missile strike on Syria by Trump following the recent chemical weapons attack that killed 100 people.

This article will quickly look at this rapidly evolving North Korea situation (see previous article for Syria and Bible Prophecy) to see what the general situation is, whether it is of concern and whether this is mentioned anywhere in Bible Prophecy?

The recent headlines from the media are stating the following These are some samples from all the mainstream UK papers

1. The Guardian: North Korea 'ready for war' after US redeploys navy strike team

2. The Telegraph: North Korea vows to respond to US Navy's 'reckless' show of force

3. The FT: US carrier’s Korea mission: a message to the world


Other Media Stories

1. New York Times: Move of US Warships Shows Trump Has Few Options on North Korea

2. Newsweek: North Korea Says it Is 'Ready for War' After US Reroutes Warships

3. Huffington Post: What You Need To Know About North Korea's Nuclear Program


Obviously this situation is of concern. The intention by the Trump and the US is to curb further missile testing in North Korea by King Jom Un which the surrounding nations have failed to achieve or are simply ignoring, hoping the problem will go away. This is exactly how the Second World War started, when action was finally taken..... it was too late. The US is taking these steps more in the name of peace. The problem again with the tactics being employed here by the US is yet again a "fighting fire with fire" mentality which has the potential to go beyond Sabre rattling and launching us unwittingly into a possible World War 3 scenario. At present this move doesn't seem to have any backing from neighbouring nations in the Asia Pacific, or even allies that backed the Syria attack, but these are early days.

Is this mentioned in Bible Prophecy?
Most if not all of Bible Prophecy revolves around the Middle East particularly Israel and more to the point Jerusalem, with the two most relevant being the Battle of Gog Magog and Armageddon (some say these are one and the same). Hence the interest in the Syria attack which is a neighbouring nation to Israel. BUT there is a mention of some sort of war before these major battles take place, which is mentioned in the Second Horseman of the Apocalypse which is the Second Seal of Revelation.

Revelation 6:3-4
3. And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see.
4. And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.


Some say this Second Seal has been opened. some say this seal has yet to be opened. Some say that none of the seals have been opened at all. I personally think quite strongly otherwise, but I could be wrong. A recent video which features over at The Twelve Gates You Tube Channel called WWW iii & The Second Seal of Revelation Prophecy made some weeks ago, gives my views on whether this Second Seal actually has been opened, what it means in our current times and most importantly........ has this seal been opened.

Summary.
It is too early to say what will happen with the US and North Korea, the US simply outclasses North Korea in technological military terms if a war was to emerge, although in number terms North Korea have a surprisingly massive army. Despite their military might however, the US must not forget what happened in Vietnam and also David and Goliath in the Bible also springs to mind!

Looking at a map of the Pacific Ocean raises another problem that is close to hand in that area, that is the South China Seas. Any action with North Korea could cause a possible flare up situation there, with a much larger and far more formidable opponent, namely China which the US has not had favourable encounters with recently. This was also mentioned in another video called China and Bible Prophecy who again are mentioned indirectly as stated in the video in the Book of Revelation and the Prophecy it contains.

The US Missile Strike on Syria. The Bible Prophecy Angle?

US Missile Strike on Syria and it's Prophecy implications


A look at the recent headline concerning the US missile Strike on Syria and destroying an Syrian military airbase in response to  the recent Chemical Weapons attack on it's own people killing at the time of writing around 100 people.

This article will take a closer look at this recent headline that emerged literally hours ago which is still developing, with further details emerging as we speak and will also look at this news headline from a Bible Prophecy perspective to see whether Iran is mentioned in Bible Prophecy and the role it has to play in the End Times if any.

Firstly the headline itself here's what is known so far.

The US has for the first time since the civil war began, targeting an airbase from where the US said this week’s chemical weapons attack on civilians was launched by Bashar al-Assad’s regime.

Here’s what we know so far according to The Guardian UK
1. The airstrikes targeted al-Shayrat airbase near Homs. The US has said this is the location from where Syrian forces launched a sarin nerve gas attack on the rebel-held town of on Tuesday morning.
2. The Pentagon said 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles were launched from the warships USS Ross and Porter in the eastern Mediterranean in the early hours of Friday morning, Syria time.
3. The Syrian military said six people were killed and several wounded in the strike.
4. Officials said senior officers had evacuated the base before the airstrikes happened.
5. Russia, a Syrian ally that has been helping the Assad regime target rebel-held districts, condemned the US action.
6. Russia said Donald Trump’s move would have consequences for the relationship between the two countries.
7. The Pentagon confirmed that Russia had been told in advance of the strike through military channels?
8. The move was supported by key US allies, including the UK, Australia, Israel and Saudia Arabia.
9. Iran said it “strongly condemned” the strikes, as it condemned “all unilateral military action”. It said the action was taken under the “pretext” of the chemical strike.

Further details from the full article at The Guardian US Airstrikes on Syria Donald Trump What we know so far https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/apr/07/us-airstrikes-on-syria-donald-trump-what-we-know-so-far

Implications of this airstrike.
1. As mentioned above this  further drives a wedge between the US and Russia potentially souring relations even further which were not strained at best under the previous US Administration
2. Oil Prices have risen at about 2% but news sources state that oil supplies in the Middle East are robust so no massive rises in oil prices are anticipated at present
3. The World War 3 card has been pulled out again. It raises the prospect of such a scenario to a heightened level and could inflame tensions with neighbouring countries within the Middle East.
4. The result looks to be a hardening solidarity of Iran with Syria as a result of this airstrike
5. Syria has a very close proximity to Israel

Views on this US Missile Strike on Iran


1. The process that the US President employed to launch such an attack leap frogging the democratic decision process was in violation of the US constitution and raises alarm bells that the same tactics could be used for initiating a nuclear attack on any nation. Under current law the US President can launch a military response to a terrorist threat within the US but outside of the US is questionable.

Rand Paul a Kentucky Republican said this:
"The President needs congressional authorization for military action as required by the Constitution, and I call on him to come to Congress for a proper debate. Our prior interventions in this region have done nothing to make us safer, and Syria will be no different,"

2. The chemical attack in Syria was a terrible thing, but fighting fire with fire is not really the answer especially in these politically sensitive and unstable times and the tinderbox situation that exists in the Middle East which has been so for some time.

3. True Christian believers in such a position would have taken a different approach to the actions that were taken by the current US President who claims he is a Christian. Maybe going down some sort of constructive talks and if that failed an economic sanctions route rather than potentially initiating a World War 3 situation which in all honesty the US cannot afford to enter into with a near $20 Trillion debt pile showing no signs of waning http://usdebtclock.org

4.  As a result of this attack Iran has shown solidarity with Syria on this matter, other nations in the Middle East may follow the same route and further inflame an already volatile situation.

Is this news headline prophetic in nature and is Syria and Iran mentioned in Bible Prophecy?

1. Syria
With this recent headline we draw ever closer to the Prophecy mentioned by Isaiah in the Old Testament being fulfilled. Damascus which is the capital of Syria which  since it's very beginning has always been inhabited, would become a "ruinous heap" according to the words of the Major Prophet Isaiah. At present there has been massive destruction in Damascus and it is close to that statement, but that prophecy has yet to be fulfilled in totality as it is still inhabited. The current war in Syria and certainly these recent events could take us one step closer to the words of Isaiah and the "burden of Damascus" being fulfilled.

Isaiah 17:1

The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.

2. Iran
With the recent US missile attack headlines showing backing from US allies Saudi Arabia, UK, Israel and Australia but receiving condemnation from Russia and especially Iran who is now showing increasing solidarity with Syria, where does Iran stand in Bible Prophecy?

Iran formerly known as Persia is mentioned in End Times Prophecy Iran’s involvement in the end times will be as one of the nations involved in the battle of , which is mentioned by the Prophet Ezekiel in the Old Testament in which specifically mentions Persia as an ally of Russia. Other nations that would form and be involved in this coalition will be Sudan, Turkey, Libya, and others. This massive coalition army is predicted,  will come against Israel, which at the time will be a peaceful nation and the prophecy states they will fail because they will be defeated by The Lord mentioned in Ezekiel 38:2

Ezekiel 38:2-11
2. Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him,

3. And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:

4. And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords:

5. Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet:

6. Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee.

7. Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them.

8. After many days thou shalt be visited: in the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them.

9. Thou shalt ascend and come like a storm, thou shalt be like a cloud to cover the land, thou, and all thy bands, and many people with thee.

10. Thus saith the Lord GOD; It shall also come to pass, that at the same time shall things come into thy mind, and thou shalt think an evil thought:

11. And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates,

Conclusions:

Today's headline was a monumental one not only for the media but also for Bible Prophecy as well, and is just further confirmation that we are in The Last Days mentioned in the Bible. As I always say, keep your eyes on the Middle East especially Isreal and Jerusalem and the bordering countries. Keep an eye on any developments and breaking headlines, but without a doubt we are in those Biblical times mentioned all those thousands of years ago by those Great Prophets Ezekiel and Isaiah.

When Damascus does finally fall and become a totally uninhabited pile of rubble, you will know the Biblical Prophecy events that follow will not be far behind. We are without a shadow of a doubt, that generation that will witness these events.

The Strange Quietness. The Calm before the Storm?

The calm before the Storm?


A bizarre blog post? The last couple of months there has been a strange quietness around the world in prophetic terms which was mentioned in a previous blog post. Yes there are still headlines out there that have an End Times feel about them and things are still happening, but at this end it has been noted for some time now (the last 5-6 weeks) that the End Times headlines have been quite sparse in the last couple of months. It's starting to make me nervous, something I haven't felt since I started this website?

In weather and climate terms, Yes there are the usual tornadoes, cyclones and other extreme weather events such as flooding, landslides, giant hail and storms but nothing beyond the norm that we normally see around the globe. With regards to mass animal deaths this is an ongoing situation that is showing a remarkable consistency. These are headline grabbing events that the media loves.

In economic terms looking at the Dow Jones in the US everything looks rosy with the Dow firmly over 20K and the Fed giving the Economic thumbs up and no sign of the reported economic collapse that would send the world down the economic plug hole, that many have been saying will happen way back since 2008/9, although it has to be said the US Debt Clock usdebtclock.org tells a different story with it rapidly approaching a horrific $20 Trillion.

In political terms in relation to a World War 3 scenario, King Jom Un carries on launching ballistic missiles like they are fireworks, much to the annoyance of global world leaders but he carries on regardless? The usual calamities happen in the Middle East and the South China Seas threat continues along with China moves, along with Russia and it's increasing activities, but the threat of World War 3 remains just that at present.....a threat.

With Trump dominating the headlines in the worlds media everywhere you look, with his unorthodox eyebrow raising style of leadership, and placards on the streets saying "not my president", the news channels are having a field day and look hectically busy in headline terms, but in reality they are filled merely with noise and distractions, a tactic used sometimes to cover up other headlines, that may be going on that the media may possibly not want you to be aware of.

Which brings us onto the quiet and more underground headlines that don't make such pleasant reading which the mainstream media are not so interested in or maybe choose to ignore for various reasons.

Bird Flu is still rampant and causing mass animal deaths around the globe but what happened to Zika......maybe it's not the in thing anymore and the media have moved on elsewhere?.Earthquake activity is spreading into areas not really renowned for earthquake activity including the recent M6.5 in Botswana, Africa. Volcanic activity also seems to be increasing and the melting of the polar ice caps doesn't seem to raise much interest beyond the scientific community who merely state it is global warming, but is a cause of concern. On You Tube at least there seems to be an increase in interest in the mysterious Planet Niburu with apparently more confirmed sightings accompanied by the ever increasing Chemtrails?, but as yet it is still firmly in the Tin Foil Hat arena of the media world but looks close to tipping over into a possible reality scenario?

So yes there is news out there, there always is, but at this end it has been noticed that it is strangely quiet...eerily so, like a calm before the storm situation or maybe I have been in this game too long and have become immune to these distressing headlines?

It's this video which was released just some hours ago which I watched this morning by somebody with a big following that is of concern.This person like myself is not a crackpot or prone to wild sensationalism or "getting on the You Tube rumour bandwagon" just for the sake of getting a few thousand views and extra subscribers, although he does have thousands of subs, it has to be said.

This channel normally specialises in the more scientific data to back up what is happening to our planet in these End Times and has featured extensively at The Twelve Gates Twitter, but recently it's been a bit quiet on his channel, he has focused on more political topics and this recent video is something to take on board. It's purely embedded into this blog post and really what this post is all about, this topic has not been used as the title for obvious reasons. If you watch this video you will realise why I have called this article "The Strange Quietness" when in fact it should be called what is stated in this video, but it can't for obvious reasons.



If this information which is vague to say the least and totally out of character for this channel, is in fact.... FACT, then as he states in the video this is a serious HEADS UP for the Christian Community if indeed the mentioned person is indeed here now. He states he has the name of this person and no it is not the US President. I personally think things have been fishy since 23 September 2015 and the bizarre events around that time confirm this, so that could have been an arrival point for the "HE that has arrived" that was mentioned in the above video.

Maybe it really is business as usual on Planet Earth and myself and this BP Earthwatch are making something out of nothing......maybe not. As always watch for further news and developments especially over at Twitter @ThatFJ but obviously such headlines will have to be cryptic just like this one.

The Ten Possible Rapture Points in Revelation?



The Ten Possible Rapture Points in Revelation?
This is a different and refreshing approach to the massive and incredibly important topic of the Rapture, something that is very special to Christians. This will not be trying to prove a particular rapture theory correct, nor will it be trying to disprove any particular rapture theory either. The Rapture will be looked at in a neutral and objective manner, trying to assess ALL the possibilities of where the Rapture could take place on the time line in line within Bible Prophecy. What does the scripture say rather than what other people or myself have to say.

This is a complex topic, but the ultimate goal is to keep this as simple as possible with no complex information or presentations, but some explanatory diagrams do creep into the video (below) due to the complex nature of the topic.

In the video featured at the end of this article

1. Will firstly look at the main Bible verses that mention the Rapture, which come mainly from The Apostle Paul and John, which are straight out of the New Testament in the Bible

2. What are the Four Main Rapture Time line Theories out there. At present they are Pre Tribulation Rapture, Mid Tribulation Rapture, Pre Wrath Rapture and the Post Tribulation Rapture and a demonstration where they appear on the Book of Revelation Prophecy Timeline.

3. A look at TEN possible rapture points that appear on the Book of Revelation Time line covering a whole spectrum of chapters. An analysis of the relevant Bible verses using Xiphos Bible Software to see what they have to say in relation to a possible rapture at that time. Do they fit the description of a Rapture, or are they mentioning something else.

4. Some personal views on the rapture and the things I have seen out there and some further scripture, which you can FYOO (Form Your Own Opinion) on and DYOFR (Do Your Own Further Research)

Rapture Theories and Analysis
The very essence of The Twelve Gates website is based primarily on The Book of Revelation and the Bible Prophecy it contains. To get to the very bottom of the Rapture conundrum we have to FIRSTLY look at the two main verses that The Apostle Paul and John mention to get the background on what shape and form the rapture will take and how it will affect Christians in the last days.

THE 2 MAIN RAPTURE VERSES

1 Corinthians 15:52
In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

1 Thessalonians 4:16
For the Lord himself shall descend 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.

Once you have the HOW information on the Rapture contained in these verses and see what the Rapture actually is and what form it will take, then you can start to approach the topic of the WHERE and WHEN on the prophecy time line. This is NOT abundantly obvious on the first or subsequent readings from the above 2 scriptures.

THE REVELATION TIMELINE

Michael Svigel of retrochristianity.org states

"One must ask where the Rapture is found in the Revelation before one asks the question of when the Rapture is said to take place, if indeed the timing of the event is even asserted by the context"



This is a very valid and important statement as the Rapture and the Last Days are interconnected and the Book of Revelation in no uncertain terms is all about the last days. So if there is a Rapture then the Prophecy contained within the Book of Revelation will give a sure fire indicator whether there is one or not and possibly when it will occur?


The Ten Possible Rapture Points according to Keith H Esse of The Masters Seminary
The backbone of this study into the Rapture and when it could possibly occur appears in "the rapture and the book of revelation" part of The Masters Seminary Journal by Keith H Essex who is Assistant Professor of Bible Exposition. He comes up with the following ten possible rapture points throughout the Revelation Time Line they are as follows:

1. Rev 3:10-11
2. Rev 4:1-2 and 4
3. Rev 5:9-10
4. Rev 6:2
5. Rev 7:9-17
6. Rev 11:3-12
7. Rev 11:15-19
8. Rev 12:5
9. Rev 14:14-16
10 Rev 20.4

I have picked this particular study, as the angle he approaches the Book of Revelation in Rapture Prophecy terms is refreshing and open minded and starts right at the beginning to let the Bible reveal the truth instead of arriving with some pre-conceived notions of when the rapture will take place and using the Bible to provide the answer to that pre-conceived notion, which will always lead to the wrong result.

After conducting this study Keith H Essex then comes to the conclusion that only one of these Ten Rapture Windows could possibly be the rapture, which will be revealed at the end of this study in the video.

Watch the video The Ten Possible Rapture Points on the Revelation Prophecy by The Twelve Gates at You Tube for a full in depth analysis and some personal conclusions on this and other rapture theories and the possible timings and form your own conclusions.
