Can The L-rd Return

 Anytime Soon?



There are many in the Church that believe that Jesus (Yeshua) could return at any moment. In fact in some Churches it is preached so hard that people believe that He could arrive in the very service that they are attending. Is it possible that these ministers are right or are they unknowingly misguiding their congregations? We will search the scriptures and determine if they are right or wrong.

The Bible is without a doubt completely true and we must always remember that. We must turn to the scriptures to determine what is truth and what is not. The Word can not lie and therefore it has to be the first and final determination for our lives. Without this there is no way to determine what is right and what is wrong. The Scriptures point us to the right way to live that we might be rightly related to G-d and man.

I Thessalonians 4:13-18 (KJV)

13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.

14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.

15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.

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:

17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

In these scriptures we can know that the L-rd is going to return to this earth. I do not think that the Church has any problems with this statement. However, there is a great controversy as to where the Church will be at the time of His return.

Briefly, there are three schools of thought when it comes to the rapture theory. One claims that the Church will be taken off the earth at the beginning of the Tribulation period. Another school believes the Church will go through the first 3 ½ years of the Tribulation and then be taken off the earth, Then another school believes the Church will go all the way through the Tribulation period. I might mention that there are a small number of people that have a theory that there will be two raptures.

I am of the school that the Church is going to go through the Tribulation. I believe that G-d is preparing the Church to walk in His power and glory in these last days. There is much to be said on this subject and I will go into detail at another time. The important thing here is the scriptures indicate that the L-rd will return.

John 14:1-3 (KJV)

1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.

2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

Jesus (Yeshua) told us himself that He would go, but He would also return.

There has to be the fulfillment of the prophecies before anything can happen. We are going to examine these prophecies. There is a number of them that still has to take place before the L-rd’s return.   

A Peace Treaty to be Signed

Daniel 9:27 (KJV)

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.

There is going to be a peace treaty signed that will bring peace with the Arab nations. This has not as of yet taken place but it will in our generation. When Israel began this process I heard the L-rd tell me that the process would be long coming and hard but it would happen in my life time. The L-rd had me to tell the people on radio and television what He had given to me. I believe that happened 10 years ago and peace does not seem any closer today than it did then. However, it will come as G-d said it would.

The Temple Rebuilt in Jerusalem…

Revelation 11:1-2 (KJV)

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.

The Temple must be rebuilt in Jerusalem before the L-rd can return. Israel has the corner stone ready to be placed for the rebuilding of the Temple. The high priest has been trained and ready for service. All the articles that were used in the last Temple have been made and wait for their time of use.

Abomination of Desolation Will Happen…

Matthew 24:15 (KJV)

15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand)

Daniel 12:11 (KJV)

11 And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days.

This abomination of desolation will take place in the Temple. Some of the Church believes that the Temple is not physical but spiritual which is spoken of in the latter times. The Temple has to be physical for the anti-Christ to occupy it as the scriptures tell us.

The Great Tribulation Run its 7 year course…

II Thessalonians 2:3-4 (KJV)

3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

The Great Tribulation must begin and run its seven year course, resulting in the death of over half of the world’s population. You should study closely the scriptures concerning this terrible time that is coming.

The Prophets are trying to prepare the people for what is about to come to this earth. Most of the Church is sound asleep and believe they are going to escape this time and have nothing to worry about. G-d, help these people because if we are not prepared we are not going to make it. There are great changes coming to the Church and the Church is going to, for the most part dig their heals in and not receive what G-d is going to do in these last days.

If you have not read my article on Transition you might want to take a look at it. This is where the L-rd is taking the Church.

Storms G-d isn't Happy with America...

G-d gave me the vision of the 911 attack on our country. I received that vision a number of years before it occurred. Ministers and many Church people said that neither could nor would ever happen in this country. But it did, not because I said it would but because G-d said it would happen. America is in for a long hard fall because we have forsaken the Living G-d. There will be more terrorist attacks here in out country. We are either going to fight them over seas or we will have to fight them here in our back yards. The picture is not pretty as to what is coming to America and the world. G-d has tried over and over again to get the attention of this nation but they would not listen to the prophets. The people would rather listen to the television ministers saying peace; peace rather than listen to the prophets. The storms that have come to Florida this year was G-d once again trying to say to us that He is not happy with the way we are serving Him. G-d gave me that vision a number of years ago. I told the people that Florida would get one hurricane after another as the judgment of our G-d would come to them. Yet we can not seem to understand what is going on.


The European Market which I prophesied the arrival thereof and that it would take a number a years for it to develop. Out of this will raise the One World Economic system? The money system that the USA, Japan, and England now enjoy will fall.

The United Nations will one day in the near future be given the power to declare who goes to war and who does not. This will take away our ability to help Israel because the day will come when she needs our help and we will not be able to help her because the UN will not sanction such action. The United Nations will become the law governing this world.

Nuclear Explosions in this Country...

There will be “dirty bombs” used here in America. In the end this nation will receive a nuclear attack that will destroy thousands upon thousands of lives. All because this nation decided to go the ways of the world and not serve G-d as our fore fathers did.

The Church is going to have to prepare themselves. Many will in the end wish they had listened to the voices that are now crying out. “Repent ye, repent ye, for the Kingdom of our G-d is once again at hand.”   

Matthew 24:29-31 (KJV)

29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:

30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

Notice that Jesus (Yeshua) is saying that “immediately after the tribulation.” Not before but after the tribulation. There will be a Great Tribulation.

The Anti-Christ must Reveal Himself….

Zechariah 13:7-9 (KJV)

7 Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man that is my fellow, saith the LORD of hosts: smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered: and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones.

8 And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein.

9 And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The LORD is my God.

The Anti-Christ must reveal himself and begin the persecution of the Believers. 2/3 of all the Jews will die during this time.

Revelation 12:11-17 (KJV)

11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! For the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.

14 And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.

15 And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.

16 And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.

17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

War will be made against the Church for three and one half years. Satan will try to destroy all of G-d’s children. However, those that keep the commandments of G-d, and have the testimony of Jesus (Yeshua) Christ will overcome. Here is how we will overcome him; in verse 11 it says that we overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony.

The covering of His blood is what the prophets of today is trying to get the Church to wake up and begin to listen to. The blood has been shed but it is up to us to properly apply it with the commandments of our G-d.

Gospel Preached to Every Person on Earth….

Matthew 24:14 (KJV)

14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

The Gospel must be preached to every person on the earth before He can return to this earth.

Revelation 14:6-7 (KJV)

6 And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people,

7 Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.

He will come with everlasting Gospel to preach to all nations.

Powers of Darkness will try to stop the Church because the Church, for the most part hasn’t seen the greater works that will be done. The Church will not know they are the more than over comers that the L-rd made us unless they prepare for what lies ahead.

We will see a great influx of people going out of the Church. Fear will grip the people because they have not been taught how to over come. When G-d transitions the Church the Glory of G-d begins to lift from the services of those that do not come along. It isn’t that people will not be saved but the Glory that they once knew will depart. They will be having Church as usual and doing everything that they used to do but G-d won’t be there as He once was.

The Mark of Beast Will Come…

Revelation 13:16-17 (KJV)

16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

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.

The mark of the beast must come before He returns. I want to share with you how the L-rd let me minister this. The majority of the time when people hear of the mark of the beast they immediately begin to let fear come upon them.

Apply the Blood Properly...

The L-rd showed me how His protection would work during this time. Just as it worked for the children of G-d in Egypt  the Death Angel was to pass over. They applied the blood of the lamb upon the lintels and doorposts. This blood caused the angle to pass over them and their first born did not die. That same Death angle will pass over again. But the Blood must be properly applied. They were keeping the Law G-d set for them to keep, which gave them the ability to be in position to apply the Blood. We have the blood of Jesus (Yeshua) as our Lamb of G-d. That blood remits the sin!, therefore we have eternal life. The key to this is to realize that Israel had done all to please G-d by keeping His law. That caused the blood to be of effect. We are going to have to also please G-d by serving Him through all of His commandments, so the blood will be of effect in our generation. The protection will be there because we have kept the things that G-d demanded us to keep. If Israel was not keeping the law then the blood would not have worked for them. Most of the Church does not even keep all of the Ten Commandments; they have received the gift of eternal life. There is more to pleasing G-d than just receiving His gifts; we must be obedient to Him for His protective blood covering to take effect.

Revelation 20:4 (KJV)

4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

The Mark of the Beast is coming to this Earth & the Church.

Revelation 14:9-12 (KJV)

9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,

10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:

11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name. 12 Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.

Those receiving the Mark of the Beast will be tormented with fire & brimstone forever.

The only people that will escape are those who are into the miraculous! Those who know their G-d and know He will deliver them in the time of their trouble. The L-rd opened the Red Sea for Moses and the children of Israel and He is not going to do any less for this last day Church.

There will occur during this time miraculous events, such as the appearance of food as people sit at their Sabbath tables and pray to our G-d. This is only the beginning of what is going to take place in the tribulation times. The Church is going to live in the miraculous as G-d has always intended for us to. We are going to work the greater works that Jesus (Yeshua) said we would work. The Church today is not even working the works that He did while He was with us, let alone the greater works.

Hosea 8:12 (KJV)

12 I have written to him the great things of my law, but they were counted as a strange thing.

There is something seriously wrong in the Church. For the most part no one wants to talk about it. We tell the people that G-d does this and G-d does that but in reality we never see G-d do much of anything. I believe it is time for the Church to wake up and see the truth. There has to be change before the Church can work in the power of G-d. That change is to recognize that G-d is calling Ephraim home. We must return to the way things were in the book of Acts where the power of G-d was in operation. The Church was doing all that Jesus (Yeshua) did and even the greater works.

Hosea 7:8 (KJV)

8 Ephraim, he hath mixed himself among the people; Ephraim is a cake not turned.

Ephraim is a cake ½ Baked!  This means that they have only half of what G-d wants for them. Ephraim being the Church has to realize this and move into the things that the L-rd is now beginning to bring forth. If the Church does not receive the message the prophets are now bringing many of them, if not all will take the mark.

Babylon Destroyed in 1 Hour….

In Revelation chapters 17 and 18 you can read that Babylon must be destroyed in one hour of one day. This must happen also before the L-rd’s return. This destruction will come by the way of nuclear power. This will be by the hands of Israel. Babylon is Iraq that is being talked about here.

Revelation 19:11-16 (KJV)

11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.

12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.

13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.

14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.

15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.

16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.

G-d is in control of all that is going to happen in these last days. He is going to send judgment to this earth as we have never known it. The storms, fires, drought all sent by the hand of G-d to judge mankind.

Wake Up America!...

G-d is saying: wake up America! I am not happy with what is now going on. I am not happy with the Church. I am not happy with the prophets that are saying peace; peace and causing my people to sleep instead of preparing. I am not happy with the government. I am not happy with the leadership of this country. I will judge this nation even further than I have in the past.

Could this be turned around, yes if we as a nation would repent. That would mean from our President right on down to the Governors of the states and to the citizens. Still it would take two generations to turn it completely around. There is no sign that it will ever happen.

Sealing of the Twelve Tribes…

Revelation 7:1-4 (KJV)

1 And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.

2 And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea,

3 Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.

 4 And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.

Twelve thousand from every tribe will be sealed. This is Ephraim and Judah, the northern and southern kingdoms of Israel. The Church is for the most part Ephraim. It all fits together if one is open to hear what G-d is saying in these last days. 

Revelation 12:17 (KJV)

17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

Here is the key, keeping the commandments of G-d, the Law and the testimony of Jesus (Yeshua). These will be the over comers and will do great exploits in these last days. Let those who have ears hear what G-d is saying to the Church.

Revelation 22:12-15 (KJV)

12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.

13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.

14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

The divine protection is there if we are willing to do His commandments.

I will discuss the commandments that we need to keep in a later writing.
