For anyone who's visiting this forum for the first time, or those who have been stopping by regularly and this is your first exposure to one of our "Studies In Symbolism", please know that I don't ever believe that I have anything to do with any of this.

Gosh no! What I mean by that is that whenever something catches my eye and sticks with me (often for no real explainable reason), I regularly interpret that to be due to the result of the Holy Spirit and then go where He (and the story) takes me, and a lot of times it ends up touching upon a number of areas all pointing to the same common religious/spiritual memes and themes that we expose and study here.

Now, even though I personally attribute such occurrences to the Holy Spirit because of my Biblical and Christian worldview (not to mention my prophetic perspective), that should not be viewed as a tacit pronouncement that I believe that any of this is a "Thus sayeth the Lord..." type of thing. Sure, it could be, but I can't be certain of that by any means. So, I want to be VERY CAREFUL not to even hint that I'm somehow "speaking for God" here.

At the same time, although these types of studies are subjective, although these types of studies are speculative, I think they still have some redeeming value because they always seem to suggest (without contriving things) that we're all right to assume that our time for spiritual preparation is just about over and that the beginning of the end is close at hand. You can read the rest of this and then tell me what you think about that in the Comments Section if you want to. Anyway, I just wanted to clarify things and be as transparent as possible with everyone.

Once again (and as always), I will caution that I know that a lot of times these types of entries test one's patience given all the various threads that we attempt to tie together, but please try to work your way through this one without rushing because there's so much here that defies logic and mere "coincidence" (which Christians don't believe in anyway, right?), and I think that MIGHT BE an important clue for us.

What does it have to do with? What's the important message we should all take away from reading today's post (if any)? REPENT! JUDGMENT IS COMING!!! THE BODY OF CHRIST NEEDS TO GET SERIOUS BECAUSE THE TIME FOR SPIRITUAL PREPARATION IS ALMOST OVER! That is the cold, hard truth regardless of any subjective analysis of perceived "signs" and "symbols" like this one.


AN IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER (CONTINUED)...


First, an admission, and a word of caution. Even though I've opened the last few "Studies In Symbolism" pieces with this type of introduction, I feel like this is something I must now include as standard fare in all future posts of this kind.

Yes, I know that studies in symbolism are highly subjective, and that can be dangerous. I get that. I also realize that this world can be distracting and that Satan will use whatever he can to keep us from doing the things that we should be doing; from setting our minds on the things that we should be setting our minds on (Colossians 3:2).

At the same time, while we are not of this world, we're still in it. Personally, my intention here is that I want to try and point to the things going on in this world (even if they're HIGHLY SYMBOLIC in nature, esoteric, and open to one's own unique interpretation) and demonstrate not only how it MIGHT BE connected to the Bible's end times prophecies
(but only so far as it gets us students of end times Bible prophecy to consider the lateness of the hour based on what such symbolism reminds us of), but also WHAT IT WAS IN GOD'S WORD that it forced me to think about.

My thinking is the same as it's been since day 1 a little over 2 years ago in these parts. If I'm clear about this being MY ANALYSIS AND INTERPRETATION OF SIGNS AND SYMBOLS IN POP CULTURE AND THE WORLD AROUND US AS I PERCEIVE THEM (as opposed to it being a
"Thus sayeth the Lord..." type of pronouncement), and if such a study ultimately gets me to spend even more time watching and praying for Jesus' return, let alone more time in the Word studying it, then how bad can a process like this be? Am I wrong to assume that the ends justify the means in this case? I don't think that I am, but you're free to disagree since I admit that I could be wrong about that.

So, from now on, I'll always feel that it is necessary to openly state these things for anyone who's new to Look Up Fellowship, or for the rest of you who still have a problem with these kinds of studies in symbolism (if that's you, then you might also want to re-read what is written about what we do here in the "What We Believe" section of this website on the right hand side of this page).

An apology is in order too. I used to think that it's almost as if the good Lord is pulling out all the stops to "give us a head's up" about what's coming -- what's imminent -- and that He's putting these messages in all the things that we've sadly allowed to become "False Idols" in our lives like art, comics, music, movies, politics, pop culture, TV, and sports to name a few. Why? Because we've stopped talking to Him and reading His Word and, as a result, many of us are clueless about what we're told about what to expect in the coming last days. Worse, maybe we're not "clueless" at all. Maybe we just don't care unless it affects us negatively on a deep, personal level.

How did I arrive at such a thought? Well, I know from what I read in the Bible that the Lord does, in fact, speak to us (and reveal Himself to us) through His creation. I reasoned,
"What are art, comics, music, movies, politics, pop culture, TV, and sports except an extension, or a part, of His creation?" and so that's why I was ok thinking that for so long.

I also used to think that because of what we read in
2 Peter 3:9 (amongst other places) about God's character and love, that that somehow meant that perhaps He was using those aforementioned "extensions" of His creation because He was "desperately trying to get our attention" since we weren't giving Him the time of day.

That sounds good, right? It makes sense. But it's not Biblical. I couldn't find any verses that made me feel comfortable making such claims, or even insinuating such claims to all of you any longer.
Lord, have mercy on me for I have sinned! See, besides, once I began to study the Sovereignty of God, as well as the Doctrines of Grace, I realized that to hold on to any kind of position that said that God was speaking to us through such things because "He was desperately trying to get our attention..." renders Almighty God impotent! It takes away His sovereignty and puts it squarely in the hands of humanity! Again, nothing Biblical about that.

To make such a vile assertion is to make it sound like He's just sitting up there on His throne, fingers crossed, hoping that we'll "finally get it" and "come to our senses" before it's too late. That flies in the face of all the passages in Scripture that speak to His sovereignty and grace and how He draws "the elect" to Him. It says that man has the freedom to "choose" or "reject" Jesus Christ, which would make Jesus a POTENTIAL Savior for some, and an ACTUAL Savior for no one. Again, how wrong I was!

No, He's not involved in most of this in the way I've suggested. Some of it, yes, but not for the reasons I've attached to it, and not as much as I've attributed to Him in the past I'm afraid. Not in the way that I have suggested for far too long. I hope that makes sense. I can admit that error (sin) on my part. Please forgive me.

So, where do we go from here then? First, I wanted to redefine my position here for the record when it comes to studies in symbolism that you will find on LUF from this moment on. From this point forward, whenever I use the headlines, images, memes, stories, symbols, and themes we find in the world around us, it will ONLY be to use them AS A STARTING POINT for a study on end times Bible prophecy (in the sense that "this made me think of this today..."), and it will NEVER be with the caveat,
"Hmmm...Maybe God is trying to get our attention and trying to tell us something so that you'll finally make Him your Lord and Savior, huh?" because that's not right. Who the heck am I to speak for God Almighty or to even assume I know what He's saying with any kind of certainty when it comes to these matters?

Let me clarify before moving on to today's main focus. Yes, God is speaking to us, and many of us aren't paying attention or listening at all. I'm also not saying that He doesn't speak to us through events that He orchestrates. He does. I'm just saying that I'm personally going to "take it down a notch" when it comes to stating with any kind of authority that I "know" that this is what He's doing for certain. It's also why I'll also present these pieces with the title of the post in the form of a question. Again, who am I to claim such things? I'm nobody!

We'll begin by using the Word of God as our foundation before proceeding with today's study...

Matthew 10:16 (KJV) Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.

Ephesians 5:11 (KJV) And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.

Proverbs 25:2 (KJV) It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter.

Luke 21:36 (KJV) Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

Matthew 10:28 (KJV) And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

Luke 21:28 (KJV) And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

Where do we even begin?


WEB BOT R.I.P. (MY "RELEASE LANGUAGE")


Can we officially put the Web Bot to eternal rest?

The words "Web Bot R.I.P." is more than appropriate today I think. Consider that my "tension release" language if you will since I've clearly reached my own "tipping point" with all of this stuff.

It's Monday, November 15th, 2010. We're all still here and there hasn't been an unprecedented global catastrophe of any kind unless I completely missed something yesterday.

Remember, this is what Clif High and his colleagues said following comprehensive analysis of their Web Bot Report about this "tipping point" time frame...

"The emotional tension level plateau is has grown. It had been previously forecast to start on the 8th, but now shows as beginning on November 5, 2010, at approximately 2:30 PM Pacific Coast Time (UTC + 8). Further, the plateau of building emotional tension now extends out further to the 14th of November instead of the 11th. This is the last building tension to accrue. Expect the level to stay maddeningly the same until the breaking point. Repeat. The 'break' in the tension values that indicates the tipping point after which we (the planet of humans) is into emotional release language starts on November 14th at 6:50AM Pacific Coast Time (UTC + 8). Repeat - Tipping point starts on 11-14-2010."

Like I said, today is November 15th and, unless I'm completely clueless, I didn't see ANYTHING in the world news from yesterday (beginning "on November 14th at 6:50AM Pacific Coast Time [UTC + 8]") that would indicate that the "tipping point" has moved us into "emotional release language" that's already underway.

Then again, not so fast. Maybe we have even though the proof will hardly impact you on a personal level like we've been told that it would. In other words, I'm sure that proponents of the Web Bot will point to what I'm about to share with you as "proof" that they were right all along.

It picked up steam with our analysis "Chile: Ascension In The Atacama" from mid-October, but it began long before that since we students of end times Bible prophecy know what's coming.

I'm talking about what I perceive to be this whole "Rise-Of-The-Antichrist" meme that we've been seeing symbolized everywhere lately (especially when it comes to the type of news that suggests that the beginning of the end, or Daniel's 70th Week and the Tribulation, is at hand).

In fact, I'd even submit to you that this meme has continued dramatically within the past week, and definitely within the past 48 hours! Plus, I missed it initially when I began writing this, but now I'm wondering if this is also the "release language" so many have been anticipating.

Take a look at these prominent international news headlines...

Myanmar Democracy Leader Aung San Suu Kyi Released

British Couple Freed By Somali Pirates After One Year

Afghan Diplomat Freed After Two Years In Captivity

Anthony Graves Freed After 16 Years Of False Imprisonment

Rapper Lil Wayne Freed From Jail
(NOTE: Remember our look at him and his newest album just a few weeks ago because of the blatant "Alien/UFO" symbolism present in the title track and music video?)

Cuban Dissident Freed 'For Humanitarian Reasons'‎

US Lori Berenson Freed In Peru

Irish Pair Held On Gaza Ship Freed

3 French Hostages Freed In Nigeria

Isn't that something? Not only did such stories make me think of the whole "Rise-Of-The-Antichrist" symbolism (being "released", in a sense, for a time upon the planet using the Antichrist amongst other things), but it also resonates with all the Web Bot stuff for sure given the fact that they are all "release" stories.

What's truly fascinating to me is how there were several prominent and unexpected cases of "prisoner release stories" from AROUND THE WORLD and not just one or two cases relegated to a specific country.

Are we witnessing some kind of symbolic pattern here or is this simply a case of me over-analyzing things perhaps (proving the dangers involved in subjective studies in symbolism of this kind)? Let the Lord be your guide on such matters. I'm just thinking out loud here.

Once again, the common thread in all of those stories is that they involve a person or persons being RELEASED FROM A PRISON after a lengthy imprisonment (at least a year or more with the exception of those last two stories).

I'm sure I don't have to tell you that they also remind me of these verses about the coming Antichrist, or the Man of Sin's rise to power on this planet...

Daniel 7:8 (KJV) I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn [were] eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.

Daniel 7:23 (KJV) Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.

Daniel 8:23-26 (KJV) And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up. And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people. And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify [himself] in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand. And the vision of the evening and the morning which was told [is] true: wherefore shut thou up the vision; for it [shall be] for many days.

Daniel 11:36-37 (KJV) And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done. Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all.

2 Thessalonians 2:9 (KJV) [Even him], whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

Revelation 13:1-10 (KJV) And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as [the feet] of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who [is] like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty [and] two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. If any man have an ear, let him hear. He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.

Revelation 17:15 (KJV) And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.

It's also interesting how it all resonates with the storyline from the current bit of "Predictive Programming" known as TV's The Event, and the constant debate in that fictional world over whether or not the US President should release the "Aliens" or keep them imprisoned in a facility in Alaska.

Makes you wonder if there's any potential real-world connection to what's going on in Yemen right now. Apparently, there have been something like 26 4.5+ magnitude earthquakes in the region in the last several hours! Let's not forget that it's been said that there is a "Stargate" in the Gulf of Aden. Just something else for us to chew on by prayerfully considering.

You know, for whatever reason though, I can't shake the weight of two verses from that Revelation 13 passage I shared earlier in this piece...

Revelation 13:9-10 (KJV) If any man have an ear, let him hear. He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.

A sobering reminder for all of us living during this late and urgent hour I'd say.

If we are "leadeth into captivity" one day for our faith (or for whatever reason), then I pray that we rest on verses like this one...

Psalm 79:11 (KJV) Let the sighing of the prisoner come before thee; according to the greatness of thy power preserve thou those that are appointed to die;

Again, for whatever reason, I keep coming back to this "prisoner", "prison", "freedom", "release" concept in Scripture today.

Oh yeah! You want more uncanny Pop Culture symbolism that hints at what's to come? Justin Bieber was in the news yesterday connected with another "release" story -- his latest single titled "Pray" was released online November 12th in advance of his newest album.

In addition, the first posthumous recording by Michael Jackson to be released will occur today featuring Akon. Why am I even mentioning that? Well, Akon rose to fame following his album titled...get this...Freedom!

Maybe I'm thinking about this in too much of a "big picture" kind of way. Maybe it's as simple as reminding us that "the truth will set you free" (John 8:32).

With that in mind, how crazy is it then to see Geraldo Rivera siding with the "9/11 Truth Movement" on Fox News -- SATURDAY NIGHT?

Geraldo Rivera On 9/11 Truth Ad Campaign & Building 7 Collapse



That's something, huh?

Yet, make no mistake, when the mainstream news starts to give credibility to a subject they've long ignored, mocked, and ridiculed that's always a pretty good bet that they're changing their tune because of a specific agenda that's now in play.


OK, BUT WHAT DOES GOD'S WORD TELL US?


As always, this study in symbolism can be enlightening, but it can be argued that it's highly subjective, and so it pales in comparison to what the rock solid Word of God tells us.

That being said, what does God's Word tell us that MIGHT BE connected to all of this today? Well, I've already alluded to some passages, but there's one more that will absolutely make your head spin!

The word "prison" shows up in Isaiah 24 too. I'm going to include the entire chapter here for you all to read for reasons that will become obvious I'm sure...

Isaiah 24:1 (KJV) Behold, the LORD maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof.

2 And it shall be, as with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant, so with his master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him.

3 The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled: for the LORD hath spoken this word.

4 The earth mourneth [and] fadeth away, the world languisheth [and] fadeth away, the haughty people of the earth do languish.

5 The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant.

6 Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left.

7 The new wine mourneth, the vine languisheth, all the merryhearted do sigh.

8 The mirth of tabrets ceaseth, the noise of them that rejoice endeth, the joy of the harp ceaseth.

9 They shall not drink wine with a song; strong drink shall be bitter to them that drink it.

10 The city of confusion is broken down: every house is shut up, that no man may come in.

11 [There is] a crying for wine in the streets; all joy is darkened, the mirth of the land is gone.

12 In the city is left desolation, and the gate is smitten with destruction.

13 When thus it shall be in the midst of the land among the people, [there shall be] as the shaking of an olive tree, [and] as the gleaning grapes when the vintage is done.

14 They shall lift up their voice, they shall sing for the majesty of the LORD, they shall cry aloud from the sea.

15 Wherefore glorify ye the LORD in the fires, [even] the name of the LORD God of Israel in the isles of the sea.

16 From the uttermost part of the earth have we heard songs, [even] glory to the righteous. But I said, My leanness, my leanness, woe unto me! the treacherous dealers have dealt treacherously; yea, the treacherous dealers have dealt very treacherously.

17 Fear, and the pit, and the snare, [are] upon thee, O inhabitant of the earth.

18 And it shall come to pass, [that] he who fleeth from the noise of the fear shall fall into the pit; and he that cometh up out of the midst of the pit shall be taken in the snare: for the windows from on high are open, and the foundations of the earth do shake.

19 The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is clean dissolved, the earth is moved exceedingly.

20 The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise again.

21 And it shall come to pass in that day, [that] the LORD shall punish the host of the high ones [that are] on high, and the kings of the earth upon the earth.

22 And they shall be gathered together, [as] prisoners are gathered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the prison, and after many days shall they be visited.

23 Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed, when the LORD of hosts shall reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before his ancients gloriously.

In case any of that was lost on you, Matthew Henry sums up Isaiah 24 as follows...

Isaiah 24 Chapter Summary:

> The desolation of the land (verses 1-12)

All whose treasures and happiness are laid up on earth, will soon be brought to want and misery. It is good to apply to ourselves what the Scripture says of the vanity and vexation of spirit which attend all things here below. Sin has turned the earth upside down; the earth is become quite different to man, from what it was when God first made it to be his habitation. It is, at the best, like a flower, which withers in the hands of those that please themselves with it, and lay it in their bosoms. The world we live in is a world of disappointment, a vale of tears; the children of men in it are but of few days, and full of trouble, See the power of God's curse, how it makes all empty, and lays waste all ranks and conditions. Sin brings these calamities upon the earth; it is polluted by the sins of men, therefore it is made desolate by God's judgments. Carnal joy will soon be at end, and the end of it is heaviness. God has many ways to imbitter wine and strong drink to those who love them; distemper of body, anguish of mind, and the ruin of the estate, will make strong drink bitter, and the delights of sense tasteless. Let men learn to mourn for sin, and rejoice in God; then no man, no event, can take their joy from them.

> A few shall be preserved (verses 13-15)

There shall be a remnant preserved from the general ruin, and it shall be a devout and pious remnant. These few are dispersed; like the gleanings of the olive tree, hid under the leaves. The Lord knows those that are his; the world does not. When the mirth of carnal worldlings ceases, the joy of the saints is as lively as ever, because the covenant of grace, the fountain of their comforts, and the foundation of their hopes, never fails. Those who rejoice in the Lord can rejoice in tribulation, and by faith may triumph when all about them are in tears. They encourage their fellow-sufferers to do likewise, even those who are in the furnace of affliction. Or, in the valleys, low, dark, miry places. In every fire, even the hottest, in every place, even the remotest, let us keep up our good thoughts of God. If none of these trials move us, then we glorify the Lord in the fires.

> God's kingdom advanced by his judgments (verses 16-23)

Believers may be driven into the uttermost parts of the earth; but they are singing, not sighing. Here is terror to sinners; the prophet laments the miseries he saw breaking in like a torrent; and the small number of believers. He foresees that sin would abound. The meaning is plain, that evil pursues sinners. Unsteady, uncertain are all these things. Worldly men think to dwell in the earth as in a palace, as in a castle; but it shall be removed like a cottage, like a lodge put up for the night. It shall fall and not rise again; but there shall be new heavens and a new earth, in which shall dwell nothing but righteousness. Sin is a burden to the whole creation; it is a heavy burden, under which it groans now, and will sink at last. The high ones, that are puffed up with their grandeur, that think themselves out of the reach of danger, God will visit for their pride and cruelty. Let us judge nothing before the time, though some shall be visited. None in this world should be secure, though their condition be ever so prosperous; nor need any despair, though their condition be ever so deplorable. God will be glorified in all this. But the mystery of Providence is not yet finished. The ruin of the Redeemer's enemies must make way for his kingdom, and then the Sun of Righteousness will appear in full glory. Happy are those who take warning by the sentence against others; every impenitent sinner will sink under his transgression, and rise no more, while believers enjoy everlasting bliss.

Obviously, that stood out to me since I (we) have felt like we're standing on the edge of the Tribulation for quite some time now, right? Of course.

What's even more intriguing is how we keep coming back to the number 24 lately. Remember how much that number came up in the last "Red Dawn" piece? E.W. Bullinger had a lot to say about the number 24 since "it is the number associated with the heavenly government and worship, of which the earthly form in Israel was only a copy" that seems to go hand-in-hand with this chapter from Isaiah, which just happens to be Chapter 24 too! Plus, who amongst us students of Bible prophecy can forget the 24 heavenly elders in Revelation 4?

Tying a nice bow on this particular Bible study today, I like what Dr David Reagan once wrote about Isaiah 24 and its DIRECT CONNECTION to the prophesied last days...

These passages and others clearly point to the time of great tribulation.

This is a time in the future when the wrath of God will be poured out upon the earth. Revelation 6:17 states, "For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?" Revelation 16:1 adds, "And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth." The destruction of the earth as described in Isaiah 24 must either be the time of tribulation or the final destruction of the earth after the thousand year reign. However, a couple of details at the end of the chapter limit the events to the tribulation. Consider these verses:

Isaiah 24:21 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the LORD shall punish the host of the high ones that are on high, and the kings of the earth upon the earth.

Isaiah 24:22 And they shall be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the prison, and after many days shall they be visited.

In that day, the Lord will gather the wicked together and shut them up in prison as prisoners. Then, "after many days shall they be visited." That is, they will be brought out to receive their judgment. The "many days" would be the thousand year reign of Christ. The visitation of the prisoners after those days would match the great white throne judgment (see Revelation 20:1-11). Notice also the last verse of Isaiah 24.

Isaiah 24:23 Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed, when the LORD of hosts shall reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before his ancients gloriously.

This time of judgment and destruction on the earth leads up to the time "when the LORD of hosts shall reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem."

This happens during the kingdom age; that is, the thousand year reign of Christ. This pinpoints the events of Isaiah 24 as a description of events during the tribulation.

Did you catch that!?!

This seems to confirm what we've suspected all along and what we've been trying to warn the world about while we still can -- "This pinpoints the events of Isaiah 24 as a description of events during the tribulation" he wrote!

Folks, I'm sorry, say what you will, but I don't think it's a coincidence that this 2-day research study ended up leading me to Isaiah 24 (of all the possible passages in the Scriptures!), which is a chapter that is CLEARLY describing for us the "events during the tribulation" as respected scholar and teacher Dr David Reagan (amongst many others) agree, especially when so many of us within the Body of Christ are discerning the signs that are all around us to conclude that the end is truly near.

Interestingly enough, I want to mention in closing how this brief study in symbolism involving "prisoners" and "prison" and "freedom" and "release" and the "truth" also led me to another appropriate verse...

Matthew 18:18 (KJV) Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

Wow! "On Earth as it is in Heaven...", right? It all reminds me of Revelation 12.

More evidence that the spiritual war that's raging in Heaven (or in the spiritual realm) is about to manifest itself quite clearly here in the physical realm in the fulfillment of end times prophecy? Stay tuned and keep looking up!


REPENT! JUDGMENT IS COMING!!!


What else can I write that I haven't (or that you all haven't written or read) yet?

The general theme that we've been seeing lately remains consistent even in today's study involving several new news items, players, and places. In the final analysis, the beginning of Daniel's 70th Week -- the start of the Tribulation -- is at hand!
Is Jesus Christ about to open the Seals just like we suspect that He is?

Now you know why I keep thinking that we're on the cusp of the Tribulation because EVERYWHERE we look we seem to be getting signs that point to its nearness by bringing our attention back to the subject over and over again regardless of any "tunnel vision" some might say that we have because we're studying these things all the time.

Sure, this is the deep, symbolic analysis and interpretation that is far riskier and much more subjective (as my disclaimer to open with asserts), but the fact of the matter is that even if we didn't have symbolism studies like this we'd still have to conclude that the beginning of the end was near.

World events and the other news headlines of the day confirm this for us by lining up with what God's Word explicitly tells us to expect, and they prove as much without us having to undergo lengthy speculative studies like this.

Even so, it's the unexpected "spiritual convergence" like this stuff that comforts me because it reminds me that our Lord is in complete and total control of EVERYTHING despite all the chaos and uncertainty that surrounds us on a daily basis.

So, regardless of what does or doesn't happen in the days, weeks, and months ahead, let's always try to rest on truths like this...

Matthew 10:28 (KJV) And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

If you have never thought of yourself as being a sinner, have never repented of your sins, and don't accept, believe in, or know who Jesus Christ is let alone what He did for you to become your Lord and Savior for the forgivess of your sins, then this is all the more reason for us to ask yourself once and for all "Am I Really A Good Person?" and "Am I Going To Heaven When I Die? Am I Saved?" before it's too late because none of us knows when we'll take our last dying breath.

Repent! Judgment is coming!

Rest in Him! Rest in His Word! Keep looking up!

Dear Jeff,
The LORD lead me to Isaiah 16:13, 14.

Deirdre

the Bot is manipulative,
its therefore always changing because its almost like the evil spirits have to wait for His decisions..

Bless the person bringing the gestationperiod under attention again - the perfect similarity of the gestation with the Biblical Feasts -

https://www.prophecyforum.blogspot.com/2010_02_01_archive.html

now - what makes it interesting is, that it writes 'the 10th of the 9th month' is the birth.
But if its a boy, one has to count 2 weeks more...leading to Haggai 2 the '24th of the 9th month'..?

- please disregard the hanukah-part in the article; that was the barkochbafeast, and isnt Biblical.

..somewhere early april? i posted here a vivid dream about 'a huge dirty restaurant, (= the world) full of grey people, and a baby appeared on a wooden table, and all the people were offended by the baby - but a few, who were applauding and happy it appeared'
.. i thought backthan that the Manchild was about to be born -
but maybe it was an announcment for these days..?
that d make sense..

The latest response from the Web Bot guys...

https://www.urbansurvival.com/week.htm

The tipping point is the precipitous drop in subscriptions to the Web Bot reports after nothing happened - LOL.

What people don't consider is that when the Web Bot forecasts these things ahead of time, like they always do, of course it will pick up predictive linguistics about it, BECAUSE EVERYONE IS TALKING AND WRITING ABOUT IT! It self-perpetuates it's own predictive linguistics.

ATTU,
I agree! This is why it is SO EXTREMELY important for believers to listen to the HOLY SPIRIT. One really doesn't need to look/listen to the news or any other source to know what is going on or what is to come, we know it by the Spirit that is in us.
Peace,
Deirdre
PS I sense something huge happening very soon and not because of one thing on the internet. Any one else, the Spirit speaking to of this?

another "release" story from the last few days. Ariel Sharon released from hospital;

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-11740778

One in every 7 households with hunger issues.

https://www.alertnet.org/thenews/newsdesk/N15275630.htm

Food famine, but worse than that a WORD famine in the land. Read Rev. 6

I saw a cover of a mag with Paula Deen titled Food is Love. No, food is temporary filling. Psalm 1 :2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on HIS law he meditates DAY AND NIGHT.

"My food is to do the will of MY FATHER" John 4

Though there are signs out there, we must remember that YESHUA said it is a wicked generation that demands a sign. I know you are not demanding a sign, but consider this; was YESHUA concerned with the politics, literature, and other events of HIS day going on around HIM, or only with what the FATHER was telling HIM to do. How did Noah, Abraham, Moses, Enoch communicate with the LORD? Did they have the Bible? No. Did they have the news? No. They had a deeply personal relationship with the LORD and listened to HIS Words.

The antichrist spirit does have an agenda. The antichrist and all who serve him would be looking at things like the Myan calandar, Ga guidestones and other occultic goings on.

My question to the brethren is this: Do we gauge what is happening in the spiritual by what the spirit of antichrist is doing or by the HOLY SPIRIT?

So many times, people have been "off" with their feelings or predictions of what could happen around the bend. And what does that breed? A lack of confidence in the Word. If indeed the LORD gives one a rhema Word on something, they should stick with that and the written Word.

I love Habakkuk 2:I will stand upon my watch and station myself on the ramparts; I will look to see what HE will say to me and what answer I am to give to this complaint. Then the LORD replied "Write down the revelation and make it plain on tablets so that a herald may run with it. For the revelation awaits an appointed time: it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certianly come and will not delay".
Deirdre

A more sure Word than the news:

Habakkuk 2:4"See, he is puffed up; his desires are not upright--but the righteous will live by his faith....
6 "Woe to him who piles up stolen goods and makes himself wealthy by extortion! How long must this go on? Will not your DEBTORS suddenly arise? Will they not wake up and make you TREMBLE? Then you will become their victims.

Praying,
Deirdre

Here's what I got from this: Pilate releases Barabbas (prisoner) to the Jews then condemns Jesus to death; Rev. 1:18; Mahmoud Abbas loses his Presidency? Replaced by Hamas leader?; earthquake swarms/bottomless pit/Abaddon/locust-like 'swarm' of devils/Hell expanding itself/Abaddon (prisoner) 'released' from prison (Rev. 9:1-11); EARTHQUAKES = LABOR PAINS/PRISONERS RELEASED = BIRTH/BIRTH OF ANTICHRIST'S KINGDOM (May want to look at Lawnmower Man 1&2); Manly P. Hall called himself the Second Beast of Revelation 13. This is the False Prophet. May expect to see Rick Warren in the company of a masculine-looking woman, blind in one eye, with a child approx. two years of age. Rick Warren is a false prophet (not sure if he's THE, though it seems promising).

We must remember that Clif filters all things through his own world view filter (which is very anti-Christian). So, when he says things like there will be no one world economy when EVERYTHING else points to the fact that there will be, you have to wonder what he has edited and what he has chose not to report (which he admits that he does). His fast backpedal shortly before the tipping point left many on the webbot forum confused. The webbots should NEVER be a sole source for information, but it did seem to be backing quite a bit of what was being reported through various other sources both Christian and secular. After all, Gerald Celente has been shouting from the rooftops about the Greatest Depression for the last 3 years or so.

ATTY: You are correct that they are a victim of their own success (and now largest failure). Either way, Clif had said several times that the webbots were probably done with this last report. If the tipping point occured, there would probably not be an opportunity to run another reports before everything really started falling apart and if nothing happened, then something was wrong with the programming or analysis of the report.

There had been some amazingly accurate language hits the past year which is why when Clif kept saying something evil this way comes and it's going to be bad, people noticed. I'm not saying that 63+ days from now everything is going to be the same as it is now. QE2 has made sure of that. Our economy is going down like the Titantic and it ain't gonna be pretty.

Anybody watching the Stock Market today. Whoa.. Maybe this is the start of something with Ireland ready to go bankrupt, possibly followed by Portugal and then Spain.

Has anyone given any thought to the Cern Project being a portal opener, a way to open a doorway so the Fallen angels can cross into our dimension basically get out of prison. I think their is a lot more going on with cern and the technology maybe was given to man by the Fallen. Just an idea that crossed my mind after reading this post. Love the site it has inspired me to start a blog of my own thanks for the inspiration.

Another prisoner released...

https://www.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE6AG2BI20101117

In reference to prisoners and release I think of Joseph who was held for a very long time and was released and went on to become the 2nd after Pharaoh.

Next the whole nation of Israel was enslaved leading to the punishment of Egypt and their freedom, sort of a physical freedom.

Lots of references in the prophecies to a future capture, punishment of the nations, the greatest exodus of all time and freedom never known before, freedom from sin and death or spiritual freedom.

on 'Expect the level to stay maddeningly the same until the breaking point. Repeat. The 'break' in the tension values that indicates the tipping point after which we (the planet of humans) is into emotional release language starts on November 14th at 6:50AM Pacific Coast Time (UTC + 8). Repeat - Tipping point starts on 11-14-2010."
Breaking point and break are key words.
23 = breaking point bust or break or braking apart, telegraphers code for break the line.
also found this: The first Morse code transmission - "What hath God wrought?" - was from the Bible passage Numbers 23:23. In telegraphers code 23 means "break the line".

jeffrey,

ok wait...
am i missing something here?

since when is the webbot considered to be ANY kind of reference for:
*Scriptural Prophetic Fulfillment*?

how far have we veered off of course?
are we that spiritually bankrupt that we listen to a secular algorithm BEFORE we listen for

*the Prompting of the Holy Spirit*?

do you have any contacts with anybody who has the Prophetic Gift?

Amos 3:7-
Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.

friend,

many times i get the feeling that you are thrashing about for any kind of a shred of evidence or a clue...

This is what the LORD says:
2Chron 20:15-

Thus saith the LORD unto you, Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God's.

Gods Word never changes,
his promises never fail...

we are so far ahead in Gods Prophetic Calendar that the best thing we can do at this point is PRAY for our unsaved family and friends!

however, as far as looking towards ANY secular media for ANY kind of sign or clue of what God is about to do is self defeating and exhausting...

im not trying to be hurtful, its just an observation? :)

jim from malibu

Fyi, jim from malibu:
"Now, even though I personally attribute such occurrences to the Holy Spirit because of my Biblical and Christian worldview (not to mention my prophetic perspective), that should not be viewed as a tacit pronouncement that I believe that any of this is a "Thus sayeth the Lord...""

Read, read and before you accuse read again...

Hey JRad,

I love some of your studies, and post here occasionally, but i was thinking this might be a good thing for you to dig into at some point. This is from my own blog, but im not trying to plug my stuff. I'm happy with my audience of a handful.

at any rate, it makes som connections between apollyon from the pit, buddha, and other gods. just wondering if I am off base with the identity of the antichrist, not that I am naming an individual, just generally.

https://www.dontaskthatinchurch.blogspot.com/2010/11/buddha-destroyer.html

keep it up!

Satan wants a fearful populace. A fearful populace may seem chaotic, but in actuality they are quite predictable in their fear response and thus can be directed and steered. Similar to native americans driving a herd of bison off a cliff.

Web bots, false prophets, disinformation campaigns and Hollywood movies are means to foment fear into the hearts of people. A punch to the nose hurts, but it is not scary if it is a sucker punch. Only if it is telegraphed way ahead of time can it create fear in the heart of the recipient.

It is out of fear, people will become desperate for a savior. The antichrist will provide that savior.

TheFlyingScot,
Boy, I missed that one, but it's relevant too!

Deirdre,
See my latest post on Bill S510 b/c it connects to your Black Horse comments here and I think you're definitely on to something as it seems the Holy Spirit is leading the Body to focus on the same things lately.

STK,
I simply want to say THANK YOU.

hopeful,
Sad, but definitely true. If people are falling for the deceit and lies of mere man, then they'll be putty in the Antichrist's hands when he arrives on the scene with all of his "signs and lying wonders".

No One,
I definitely think you're on to something. You might want to use the Search Bar on this site and even check out some of the specific categories where LUF has explored this very same subject. Plus, Tom Horn's last book "Apollyon Rising" (or even King Wells, Jr's "Ancient Myths And The Bible") are good resources too for this topic. Keep up the good work for our Lord! I'm going to add your site to our Blogroll.

In Christ,
Jeff ("JRed")

Excellent, thanks Jrad!

I've been following your blog for a while, and I know i've seen you cover some parts of it. I'll see what else I can dig up on other fun topics.

I did find another site, no link, sorry that they claimed that Maitreya in Hebrew is numerically 666. I take it with a grain of salt as so many names can be made to match the number, but we'll see. I think Maitreya could definitely fit the bill
