How Do We Know If We Are In The Last Days or End-Times?
Revelations; We Are In the Last Days!

Revelation 1:3 "Blessed
is he who reads and those who hear the words of this
prophecy, and keep those things which are written in it; for
the time is near."
Luke 21:25-28 (NKJV)
“And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the
stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with
perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring;
men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of
those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers
of the heavens will be shaken.
Then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with
power and great glory.
Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift
up your heads, because your redemption draws near.”
“We are truly living in the Last Hour of the Last Days. Each
day as we watch international news, we witness the unfolding
of the Book of Revelation.” – Dr. James Lee, River of Life
“We are in the 11th hour generation and we are
the last generation;
we are seeing signs, wonders and miracles. This is the
end times when we are seeing culmination of all previous
revivals and this will continue until the 12th
hour, when Jesus returns.” Comments made by Perry
Stone on his program Manna Feast 4/14/08.
First I want to make it clear that no one knows the time of
Jesus’ return, not the Son; only God the Father.
Matthew 24:36 (NKJV) “But
of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of
heaven, but My Father only”.
Having said that, we do not know the time; however we do
know the season by watching the signs. As you study
God's word, you will find that there are signs for the
Rapture and of His second coming or Glorious Appearing. Let
us look to see what scripture says about His return. The
Bible promises the return of Jesus. In the 216 chapters in
the New Testament there are over 300 references to the
return of Jesus. 23 of the 27 books of the New Testament
mention Christ's return. The Old Testament prophets, Job,
Moses, David, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Daniel and most of the Minor
Prophets, all spoke of Christ's return. The early church
taught Jesus would return and Jesus himself promised he
would come back at the end of days.
I would like to make a distinction between the rapture and
the second coming of Christ because they are two different
events. Further, what often escapes the attention of
most Christians is the fact that prophetic signs pointing to
the 2nd Coming will also be found during the tribulation
period, that seven-year period of hell-on-earth that will
follow the rapture. The church, certainly, will not
see the fulfillment of those post-rapture signs from an
earthly perspective because she will be in heaven with her
Lord. There will, however, be a great multitude of
those left behind after the rapture that will see these
events and know exactly what they mean. Taking a stand
on what they know will cost them their heads (A Multitude
from the Great Tribulation Revelation 7:9; 20:4).
Signs for the Rapture;
(here are 7 signs, however, they are not all inclusive)
The Rebirth of the nation of Israel on May 14, 1948,
Isaiah 66:8 (NKJV) "Who has heard such a
thing? Who has seen such things? Shall the earth be
made to give birth in one day? Or shall a nation be
born at once? For as soon as Zion was in labor, She
gave birth to her children.
Who would have believed that a Nation would or could be
reborn in a day, well Israel was!
This is probably the most significant event to occur
in world history. Never has a people, an entire race that
was displaced and brought back to their former homeland.
This land was promised to Israel by God, granted to
"And I will establish My covenant between Me and you and
your descendants after you in their generations, for an
everlasting covenant, to be God to you and your descendants
Since the time of the rebirthing of Israel many other bible
prophecies have been fulfilled, including this one where
Israel will be hated by all nations. Mat 24:9 "Then
they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and
you will be hated
nations for My name's sake.
About sixty years ago, the Jewish homeland began a rebirth,
as Jesus proclaimed through His written word. The migration
continues, over the past 100 years from all parts of the
world the migration population is about is about 12% of the
total population. There are still more Jews in various parts
around the world that will return, as many as 100,000.
It did not matter where they were or what conditions they
lived in, in time of peace or war, the Jewish people kept
the Passover, giving thanks to God for bringing out of Egypt
to the Promise Land; Israel.
Where they continue to come and fulfill Bible
will have control of Jerusalem, during the 6-day war in
Luke 21:24 (NKJV) 24 "and they will fall by the edge of the
sword, and be led away captive into all nations. And
Jerusalem will be trampled by Gentiles until the times of
the Gentiles are fulfilled." Mark 13:30
"Verily I say unto you, that this generation shall not pass,
till all these things be done.
Jesus prophesied this in Luke 21:24. After the Jewish were
scattered almost 2000 years they were reborn as a Nation in
1948, now in 1967 they have control Jerusalem.
Now known as the
1967 Arab-Israeli War,
Six Days' War,
The Arab states of Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Tunisia,
Morocco and Algeria also contributed troops and arms to the
Arab forces. The shortest war ever recorded in history.
The Reunification of Europe; Daniel saw a revived Roman
Empire (Reunification of Europe).
Daniel 7:23-25 (NKJV) 23 “Thus he said: The fourth beast
shall be a fourth kingdom on earth, which shall be different
from all other kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth,
Trample it and break it in pieces. 24 The ten horns are ten
kings Who shall arise from this kingdom. And another shall
rise after them; He shall be different from the first ones
And shall subdue three kings. 25 He shall speak pompous
words against the Most High, Shall persecute[a]
the saints of the Most High, and shall intend to change
times and law. Then the saints shall be given into his hand
for a time and times and half a time."
European Trade Union Confederation (ETUC)
May 1st, 2004 an historic moment in the Reunification
of Europe. The date of May 1st, 2004 constitutes an
historic moment in European Integration. It signifies much
more than an enlargement of the European Union from 15 to 25
countries with 455 million inhabitants. It is in fact a real
reunification of Europe which the Second World War had left
divided against the will of its citizens.
The reunification of Europe is stepping stone in creating
world systems; banking, religion and new world order
ultimately, this will usher in the first world leader, the
Outpouring of the Holy Spirit; Acts 2:17-19. "And
it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, That I
will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; your sons and
your daughters shall prophesy, your young men shall see
visions, your old men shall dream dreams, and on My
menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit
in those days; and they shall prophesy. I will show wonders
in heaven above and signs in the earth beneath: blood and
fire and vapor of smoke."
When the "Magic Kingdom" Starts Looking Like God's Kingdom
Aimee Herd (June 23, 2009)
When a group of Christian youth visiting Disneyland pray for
one young man and he's healed instantly, many other healings
and salvations suddenly break out.
Jesus made a visit to Disneyland recently (in the form of
healings and salvations), according to a blog by Jason Chin
on the website for Bethel Church in Redding, CA. A small
group from Bethel went down to Disneyland for a day of fun,
but God had much more than that planned for them. As Jason
says, "It made the happiest place on Earth even happier!"
And don't miss the YouTube
which was recorded while the young people prayed for others
in the food court at Disneyland's "Frontierland."

DENVER OUTPOURING 8TH WEEK!: 'DURING THE DEMOCRATIC
CONVENTION' Nightly at 7pm (August 27-29 this week!)
WOW! This past week
has been amazing but now we are entering our 8th week
Last week we not only had amazing miracles, healings, signs
and wonders as usual but also some
including a Muslim woman from Somalia. Another man suddenly
approached the stage
where David was preaching and began to yell out seemingly
angrily as he had been
obviously been drinking,
"I am a Native American and served in the Marines!" With
that David began to
explain the role of Native Americans in the revival of
American and how we needed to
honor them and include them
as one of the keys to a national awakening and how it had to
touch them as he has said
many times before, he also honored those that served in the
armed forces. To
make a long story short, the man that night received Jesus
as His Lord and Savior!
There is such a great grace as the glory, presence and joy
of the Lord not only shows up but is
ever present from before we
walk in!. Even David Wagner, a prophetic minister friend who
came last week had
just had 2nd degree burns on his arm. When he walked into
suddenly they disappeared. Another lady noticed that her
tumor of many years just disappeared. These are many
atmospheric miracles plus the miracles that come through
word of knowledge.
It's not so much the miracles but the Glory and Presence of
God behind the
miracles. Besides the tumors and deaf ears people continue
to receive major instant weight loss

Spirit is breaking upon America and we want to welcome what
God is pouring out to our city.
December of 2002, a group of spiritual leaders throughout
the state assembled to discuss the same frustration –
Louisiana’s desperate need of a touch from God. All had
attended conferences and crusades that promised much, but
left much to be desired. The key elements were missing.
Where was the anointed worship, tarrying in prayer, and
powerful prophetic preaching? Where was the fire that fell
at Pentecost, the awakening anointing that accompanied John
Wesley and that birthed Azuza Street? When would Louisiana’s

menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit

The End Times Intelligence Reports (ETIR) - Saturday,
September 8, 2007
has scored a major victory in its quest to large-scale human
chip implantation. Through its Verimed service offering,
Verichip will implant RFID chips in over 200 Alzheimer's
patients in Palm Beach County, Florida. This company is
quietly building its case for wide-scale, forced human chip
implantation in Congress and large corporations. Most people
don't realize it but US prisons are most ran by private
corporation -largely the Wackenhut Corporation.
The End Times Intelligence Reports (ETIR) believes that
widespread human chip implantation will play out in the
following major scenarios:
- Verichip "chips away" at law
enforcement industry (pun intended). The Bureau of Prisons
replaces the ankle bracelet worn by parolees with forced
RFID chip implantation.
