Tribulation Update

VIDEO: Tribulation Update

And to the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things said he that has the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know your works, that you have a name that you live, and are dead. Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found your works perfect before God. Remember therefore how you have received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore you shall not watch, I will come on you as a thief, and you shall not know what hour I will come on you. (Revelation 3:1-3 AKJV)

Jesus admonished the Pharisees for not knowing the season they were in and through the Apostle John, He corrects one of the churches in a similar manner. We should know the current season we are in. We created a “Tribulation Timeline” after the Lord guided us through the books of Revelation and Daniel beginning with what He said about His return in Matthew 24. A pattern in tetrad and trios of blood moons indicated something would begin this year, September 19-20, 2022.

I was raised to believe that the Tribulation and Daniel’s Week referred to the same time period beginning with the breaking of the first seal mentioned in Revelation and Israel’s signing of a seven-year peace treaty. When I first mentioned this date in early 2022, I used Tribulation and Daniel’s Week interchangeably. Since then, the Holy Spirit has been speaking to me concerning the difference between the Tribulation and Daniel’s Week. 

Jesus referred to two separate levels of tribulation:

Then they will hand you over to suffer affliction and tribulation and put you to death, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. (Matthew 24:9 AMPC)

The same Greek word is used in both of these scriptures: thlipsis. It means pressure (literally or figuratively):—affliction, anguish, burdened, persecution, and trouble. The disciples were handed over and killed, that part of the “tribulation” has already occurred. There is a Tribulation that will begin where Christians will be hated by all nations upon the earth, that part of the tribulation has yet to begin. When we continue reading, we see what else needs to happen:

And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure to the end, the same shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness to all nations; and then shall the end come. (Matthew 24:10-14 AKJV)

There must be a great offense and false prophets running about. This is what is occurring right now. Many people are offended by what the Bible calls sin. There are many “prophets” who are declaring prophecies that don’t come true. Because of this, the hearts of many Christians have hardened. They are not on fire for God anymore.

So when you see the appalling sacrilege [the abomination that astonishes and makes desolate], spoken of by the prophet Daniel, standing in the Holy Place—let the reader take notice and ponder and consider and heed [this]— …For then there will be great tribulation (affliction, distress, and oppression) such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now—no, and never will be [again]. (Matthew 24:15 & 21 AMPC)

There is also a Great Tribulation that will begin when the abomination appears in the temple in Jerusalem. So the Tribulation has continued since Jesus left, and as the disciples were persecuted, so Christians will begin to be persecuted as well.

When we discussed the seals in the Revelation series, the Holy Spirit said that the first seal had to be broken before the peace treaty could begin, which means it will happen before the beginning of Daniel’s Week. The breaking of the first seal is the AntiChrist riding forth in power so that the nations can be pushed into signing the peace treaty. In fact, the first five seals could be broken before Daniel’s Week begins! We now know that this was the breaking of the first seal of Revelation on September 19-20 which will lead to greater Tribulation and all the other events once Daniel’s Week begins.

I misapplied the urging of the Holy Spirit about the difference between Daniel's Week and the Tribulation. Instead of the breaking of the first seal which many would regard as the beginning of the Tribulation, I labeled the event as Daniel’s Week. Since September 19-20, several key events have occurred indicating that something has changed. 

On September 20: Israel’s Prime Minister met with the Turkish President and by the 21st, it was announced that Israel would be allowed to appoint an ambassador in Turkey for the first time in over a decade. Every week there is a new announcement about Israel making historical strides forward toward regional peace. This will continue until some sort of agreement is reached that includes a seven-year period. At that point, Daniel’s Week will begin.

Breaking the First Seal

There is an additional confirming sign in the heavens that the first seal has been broken: Jupiter’s opposition to the sun and closest approach to Earth occurred on the same day. The planet could be seen with binoculars as it outshone all of the stars in the sky.

It, like all other celestial events, must have a connection to a specific day in order to be significant. This event happened on the first day of the Jewish new year, which is the Feast of Trumpets. What Does it mean? 

  • Jesus’ first coming was marked by a star over his birthplace.
    • Could this star being brighter than all others be announcing the arrival of the AntiChrist?
  • It can be seen over the whole Earth.
    • It is located 7 degrees above the horizon
    • Seven is God’s number of completion in the physical
    • The physical events are now perfectly aligned for the arrival of the AntiChrist.
  • This appeared on the Feast of Trumpets
    • It is heralding the AntiChrist who will now begin operating in power. 

According to scripture, he will bring Israel and other nations into a seven-year agreement which will be the beginning of Daniel's Week.

Daniel’s Week

What does all this mean concerning the beginning of Daniel’s Week? When I visited with the Lord a few weeks ago, I asked Him the same question. “Can we use the blood moons to calculate the beginning of Daniel’s Week?” 

He replied, “Have you not read, no one will know the day or the hour, not even Me.” 

This doesn’t mean we cannot know that it is close. We know that the first seal has been broken and the AntiChrist is moving in power. We can examine the Tribulation Timeline to see the events that will take place within it:

  1. We know the temple of God must be built at the beginning of Daniel’s Week.
  2. During the first half of Daniel’s Week, the Two Witnesses will prophesy as the new temple is built or once it is complete. (Revelation 11:1)
  3. Around the middle of Daniel’s Week, the seventh seal will be broken and nothing will occur for a while until the 144,000 are sealed.
  4. At the end of Daniel’s Week, after being killed, the Two Witnesses will rise at the sixth trumpet. 

We may have a date for the following events between the seventh seal and the sixth trumpet: 

  • 1st Trumpet: Small meteorites hit the Earth
  • 2nd Trumpet: Large Meteorite hits the ocean

According to Nasa, on April 13, 2029, an asteroid named Apophis will approach Earth, coming closer than some of Earth’s satellites. Other experts believe that it will actually impact the Earth. 

If this is the asteroid mentioned in the first two trumpets, then we know it will happen towards the last half of Daniel’s Week following a period of peacefulness. This would place it somewhere (in a two-and-a-half-year period) between four years after the peace treaty begins and six-and-a-half years after the beginning of Daniel’s Week. If Apophis is the second trumpet, this means the peace treaty marking Daniel’s Week can start anywhere up to the end of March 2025. 

Looking at the blood moon tetrads and trios is the first time I received an interpretation of signs in the heavens. With all interpretations, if you focus on the details, you can miss the big picture. The Lord told me to look at previous blood moons to gain an understanding of future ones:

  • Blood Moons 2014-15: The Witness of the Second Coming was called on September 19, 2015, at the end of the first tetrad, but not on the days of the actual blood moons days. 
  • Blood Moon, May 15-16: This occurred on Second Passover indicating that the events necessary for the Second Coming of the Lord would soon begin. 
    • The area of effect included New York which hosted the UN General Assembly.
    • They began in September four months later. 
  • Blood Moon Dec 31, 2028 - Jan 1, 2029: It marks the year the Earth will be forever changed. 
    • An asteroid may hit the ocean on April 13, 2029, four months later.  

When looking at these as a whole we see that Hebrew Holidays fell on the dates of the blood moons, not major events. The blood moons are heralding events, they are not the dates that events will occur on. The first and last of the blood moons herald events that seem to occur within four months after the blood moon. Is this setting a trend?  

The last blood moon of the 2021-2022 trio will happen on November 7th. Will Daniel’s Week begin four months after November 7th? The only thing we know for sure is that it has to start before the end of March 2025.

Preparing for the Future

Now concerning the times and the seasons, brothers, you have no need to have anything written to you. For you yourselves are fully aware that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. But you are not in darkness, brothers, for that day to surprise you like a thief. For you are all children of light, children of the day. We are not of the night or of the darkness. (1 Thessalonians 5:1-6 ESV)

We are surely to know when the time is close, however, we should read the rest of this passage to see the full scope of what Paul is saying. 

So then let us not sleep, as others do, but let us keep awake and be sober. For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk, are drunk at night. But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, having put on the breastplate of faith and love, and for a helmet the hope of salvation. For God has not destined us for wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us so that whether we are awake or asleep we might live with him. Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing. (1 Thessalonians 5:6-11 ESV)

We need to know what season we are in, but that should not be our focus. We must continue to walk in faith and love, knowing we are saved through our Lord. We should continue to encourage one another, prepare for what is ahead, and live our lives. 

As the Jewish new year began, the Lord made one thing clear: Now is the time to draw close to Him. We must focus on our relationship with the Lord for this is what will be our protection in the Tribulation. He has sent His ministering spirits to guide His bride to bring provision into His storehouse. This will allow Heaven to miraculously provide for us during the Great Tribulation. (Read that message: A New Day has Dawned).

We cannot focus on what the enemy is doing. That will bring fear and anxiety. This is why I didn’t mention all the events in the Israel news that show the movements of the AntiChrist. We don’t need to search for news about the Tribulation. When the peace treaty is signed, you will know because the Temple of God will be built in Jerusalem. The whole world will be talking about it.

I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world, you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33 ESV)

Our focus must be on the Kingdom of Heaven, not the Tribulation. Our Lord has overcome the world: nothing is too hard for Him. We must meditate upon what the Bible says: Jesus is our Provider, Protector, and Beloved. As we focus on Him, we will become islands of peace in the middle of tribulation!

Believers' Boot Camp series

Believers' Boot Camp - Volume One
Believers' Boot Camp: Volume Two
Roadmap to Heaven
Destroying Curses
in the Courts of Heaven

Many people think of boot camp as a place you train for combat. Any veteran will tell you that basic training is about three things:

  • Knowing what weapons are available 
  • Learning how to use those weapons 
  • Receiving orders and following them 
Believer’s Boot Camp series is a collection of books which teach us how to hear more clearly from God with the goal to ready ourselves for a face-to-face meeting with our Lord, Jesus. The series reveals the “weapons and tools” God has given us and how to use them, so we can bring God’s kingdom to Earth. Each book in the series focuses on a single topic to clearly define one tool or weapon from our Heavenly Father. 

The series uses the Word of God to reveal all that He has given us through Jesus. The Bible is our instruction manual and the Holy Spirit is our guide to understanding it.

Why Doesn't God Speak to Me?

Believers’ Boot Camp, Volume 1

Eager hearts cry out, hoping for a single word to confirm that He hears us. Yet, many times the only sound is silence. Over the years I have heard several reasons why God speaks to some and not to others. One night, as I tossed and turned, I brought each of these reasons before the Lord, stating why each of them did not line up with who I thought He was. 

Words rose from my soul, pleading for Him to reveal why He has remained silent when a single word from Him would mean so much to so many. For the next few hours, God used things I learned about years ago and things I had just discovered to show why He talks to some and why He doesn’t, and in demonstrative ways. 

In His grace, He also showed me how people could hear more from Him. Basic instructions on how to hear more from God and how to be led by Him are included in this book. Thank you for taking time to consider the answers I received and share with you now.

Keys to Authority for Every Believer

Believers’ Boot Camp, Volume 2

There is untapped power that is easy for every Christian to access in the form of authority. The keys to this authority will unlock weapons we can use to free ourselves from the attacks of the enemy. We must be intimately aware of the bounds and limitations of our weapon if they are to be used effectively. 

Find out about your authority:
  • Why you need it.
  • Where it comes from.
  • What you can do with it.
  • How to get more.

Destroying Curses in the Courts of Heaven

Believers’ Boot Camp, Volume 3

Our rights to appear in the Courts of Heaven have been greatly undervalued. The missing key to our authority is here. Jesus has provided the access and the Bible shows us the court procedures. When we learn to operate in our rightful place as children of the Most High, the enemy will be defeated and we will see the victory we have prayed for.

The death of Jesus freed us from the curse of the law. However, we must declare this freedom just as we must make a declaration for our salvation.

  • Can curses be passed to our children?
  • What are signs of a curse?
  • How do you get rid of one?

Every answer is backed by scripture. Come and find out how easy it is to be free!

Roadmap to Heaven

Believers’ Boot Camp, Volume 4

As I meditated and sought the Lord, a vision overcame me. A “Roadmap to Heaven” was deposited into my soul. We are entering a season of unparalleled access to Heaven. Jesus is calling all who are His to visit with Him in the Secret Place of the Most High.

  • What is the Secret Place?
  • How do we enter?
  • What will we find there?

The Bible holds the answers, the mystery has been revealed. As you use the map given in this book to journey to the Secret Place, discover your destiny and find the gifts the Holy Spirit will bring along the way.
