Post-2012 Doomsday Blues? 4 Lessons or Benefits

Although many were relieved when December 21st, 2012 passed without any of the predicted disasters, some instead were confused or even depressed after. They wondered why they did not see through it like most people did (who may be saying “I told you so.”) Certainly it is easy to negatively judge the 2012 hysteria and those who spread it as malicious or make them wrong. Yet, there is actually a silver lining to 2012 and hysteria like it. Understand four easily overlooked benefits and lessons from doomsday date hysteria to help you get past the post-doomsday date blues or the temptation to judge those who participated in it–even if that includes yourself.

The Harbinger: Has America Ignored Actual Warnings From God?

“The Harbinger” novel proposes that God has sent America nine omens or warnings of judgment starting with the 9/11 attacks. These “harbingers” include the Great Recession seven years after 9/11 along with several surprising coincidences at Ground Zero and “vows” against God supposedly made by US leaders. Rabbi Cahn claims that in all this God is following the “prophetic warning pattern” of Isaiah 9:10 that leads to economic downfall if we do not repent. But is this a message from God or even accurate to how God speaks? When you compare this theory to the real pattern of warning and judgment that is spelled out not just in one verse to Israel but throughout the entire Bible, you can see for yourself whether America is in judgment or being warned of judgment just yet.

End of the World? Our Real “Nemesis” According to Bible Prophecy

Does Bible prophecy predict an “end of the world?” Unfortunately, yes; but not in the way that most expect or would believe. Civilization won’t end by ice age, global warming, nuclear war, overpopulation, killer virus, supernova, or by any other doomsday scenario accepted by most scientists. Instead, Bible prophecy corroborates a fringe theory proposed by only a few acclaimed scientists. Find out about Nemesis theory and where Revelation describes something just like it bringing a series of global cataclysms to earth. Also why this theory is not so “laughable” as the similar “Planet X” theory.

The Four End Time Groups: Will You Be in the Safe Group?

Most Christians recognize just two groups of people in the present time or the end times: the saved and the damned today, and later, the raptured and “left behind.” But Jesus and Bible prophecy do not describe it so narrowly. There will be not just two, but four groups we can fall into for most of the final seven years. Find out what these end time categories are, which one you’ll likely fall into (it’s not what you think), and what to do today to help you make it into the right group later. Also who the mysterious “Woman” of Revelation 12 is…

6 Wrong Ways to Face the End Times (& One Right)

Bible prophecy says that bad things are coming. Conspiracy theories found on the Web only confirm this. In light of this warning, what should we do to prepare?

Parable of the Fig Tree: Jesus On Knowing If He’s Coming Now or Later

Jesus gave the “Parable of the Fig Tree” in his answer to his disciples’ question on the sign of his coming yet Christians don’t understand the sign it refers to and instead keep inventing new ‘signs’ almost every year. The parable itself is often turned into a symbolic prophecy referring to major events in the history of modern Israel one “generation” away from Christ’s return, supposedly allowing you to calculate the second coming date. But does “this generation” refer to Jesus’ first century audience or maybe to our generation, the “last generation?” Discover the real meaning of the parable and the key to discerning where we are in Bible prophecy that it plainly teaches when you let it.

The Two (Not One) Gog/Magog Wars Recognized At Last

Gog Magog from from Jean Wauquelin's Book of Alexander. Bruges, Belgium, 15th cent.

In the intriguing Ezekiel 38 & 39 Gog/Magog war prophecies, God has hidden his meaning similar to how Jesus hid his with his parables (Mk 4:10-11). Since these two consecutive chapters are so similar, the consensus is that they are the same prophecy of a single attack on Israel by the same “Gog.” Find out why there are actually two Gogs and two wars indicated there through a parallel prophecy in Revelation—1000 years apart.

Why “No Man Knows the Day or Hour” Does Not Apply Forever

When Jesus said, “no man knows the day or hour,” he nullified the past use of the Bible (or anything else) to “set dates” or predict when end time events will happen. But his words are not clear enough today alone to silence prophecy speculation. Some people think “day or hour” allows for knowing the year or is only code for the Day of Trumpets. On the opposite extreme, some think Jesus meant that his return could happen at any moment or that we could learn nothing about timing and therefore not even study his prophecies. Find out what Jesus really meant by looking at what he said in context…and also by considering what he did not say.

What’s Next In Prophecy & What’s Holding It Back?

With the completion and activation of Iran’s first nuclear reactor (at Bushehr), an often-overlooked Old Testament prophecy comes again into focus. Importantly, this prophecy, and not the rapture, is the next one to be fulfilled. With the proliferation of nuclear weapons approaching in the Middle East, it could very well come in our lifetime. Find out what it is and why it still has not happened despite the constant expectations for it every year.
