What time is it? Most of you have been asked that question 1000 times. Have you ever been asked what prophecy time is it? Meaning where are we in the prophecy timeline? If some one were to ask me that question and other questions in this regards, here is how the conversation might go.
Question: Where do you think we are in the end times Bible prophecy timeline?
Answer: I believe that we are very close to seeing major end times events, such as the Seals of Revelation, occur.
Question: More specifically what are you talking about?
Answer: Seal 1: Conquering world kingdom—aka the
Order. Seal 2: WWIII. Seal 3: Worldwide financial collapse. Seal 4: A pandemic. The
first four Seals will result in the death of ¼ of the world’s population. (Rev
Question: When do you foresee these things occurring?
Answer: If the 70th Week began on 10/28/10 and the Second Coming of Jesus—when he returns to earth at Armageddon—will be in 2017, then I would expect the seals to occur by the end of April 2014. If the Second Coming will be in a later year then we possibly have a little more time before the Seals are opened.
Question: Whenever the Seals are opened, what will happen after that?
Answer: The antichrist/UFO man will come on the scene to “save” the world from its problems. The leadership of the New World Order will be given to him for 3.5 years, and he will take over the world. He will require “the Mark” to be able to buy or sell. A one world religion will be created, with its capital in
. The antichrist
will also perform the abomination of desolation. Seal 5 will then be opened,
and the antichrist will make war against Jews and Christians. (Rev 6:9-11) Jerusalem
Question: What about the rapture, where does that fit in with all of this?
Answer: I believe the rapture will occur from .5 to 2.5 years after the persecution begins—I am praying for .5 years. After Seal 6 is opened Planet X, as called by many, will arrive and great and fearful events will occur. This is also the time that Jesus appears in the sky, the rapture occurs, and the wrath of God begins. (Rev 6:12-17)
Question: What will it be like for those left on earth after the rapture?
Answer: Absolutely horrifying. Here is what will occur.
Seal 7: Fire, thunder, lightning, earthquake, 7 Trumpet judgments begin. (Rev 8:1-6)
Trumpet 1: Horrific hail and fire, 1/3 of plants burned up. (Rev 8:7)

America the sinks under the ocean. (Rev 16:17-21,
Rev 18:21, Jer 51:42) Babylon
Jesus is anointed as King of the World and the Millennium begins! (Rev 19)
Question: In light of this information what should people do?
Answer: The things listed above will occur, the only questions is when. Thus people must be prepared physically, mentally, and spiritually for these events, for they could start very soon. The most important preparation is spiritual—make sure that you are a true Christian and that you are living a life pleasing to God.
Question: What is a true Christian?
Answer: That is a good question, because there are many who think they are Christians but they are not. A true Christian is a person who believes that Jesus is God and has placed their faith in the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation from the penalty of their sins.
Question: How does somebody do that?
Answer: There are 4 simple steps to becoming a Christian. We must realize that;
1. We are sinners. As the Bible says; “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Rom. 3:23). Sin is falling short of God’s perfection. Everyone has sinned many times in life. We have all lied, or stolen, or cheated, or done something wrong at some time in our lives. “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one” (Rom. 3:10).
2. We deserve Hell. Realize that there is a punishment for being a sinner, and that punishment is death. “For the wages of sin is death” (Rom. 6:23). Not only a physical death, but also a spiritual death. The place of spiritual death is called Hell. “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death” (Rom. 21:8). There is probably no person alive who can say that they never told a lie. We all have sinned and we all deserve the punishment of Hell for our sin.
3. Jesus died for our sins. “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Rom. 5:8). Jesus willingly went to the cross, shed His blood, and died for our sins. He paid the price for our sins. He suffered the punishment that we deserve. When He was on the cross, Jesus suffered Hell for us. Hell is a place of total separation from God. When Jesus was on the cross, God the Father separated Himself from God the Son. That is why Jesus cried out “with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? That is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?” Jesus was experiencing separation from God the Father. He was suffering the Hell that we deserve. He was paying for our sins.
4. We must receive Christ by faith. In order to become a Christian, it is not enough to know that we are sinners, that we deserve Hell, and that Christ died for our sins, but we must receive Christ by faith. “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast” (Eph 2:8,9).
Notice that we cannot earn our way to heaven. We obtain salvation through faith, not by works. Faith basically boils down to placing your trust in something or someone. If you are sitting down while reading this, you are placing your faith or trust in the chair that you are sitting upon. Faith requires more than just an intellectual belief; it involves an action of your will. For example, if there were a pond covered with ice, and there were people standing around saying that the ice could hold them up, but they were not willing to walk on the ice, then they would only be demonstrating an intellectual belief and not faith. If they stepped out onto the ice, they would be demonstrating faith.
One can place their faith in Christ by simply calling out to Him in prayer, for the Bible says, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” I expressed faith in Christ by sincerely praying a prayer like this:
“Dear Jesus, I am a sinner. I deserve Hell. Thank you for dying for my sins. Save me. Come into my life. Make me the kind of person that you want me to be. I thank you that you have and that you will take me to heaven when I die. Amen.”
If you sincerely pray that prayer with all your heart, then the Lord Jesus will come into your life and forgive your sins, and save you from an eternity of Hell. If you were to die tomorrow, you would go to heaven. Not because you are good enough to get there, but because you have received the payment of your sins. It is that simple.
"Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life." (Jn 5:24)
Question: Anything else you would like to add?
Answer: Yes, there is more that you need to know about the end times. I have put the information in an easy to understand end times Bible prophecy book entitled; The Coming Epiphany. You can download it for free. BTW; whatever you do, do not take the Mark, it will dam you to hell.
