"We see, in many a land, the proudest dynasties and tyrannies still crushing, with their mountain weight, every free motion of the Consciences and hearts of men. We see, on the other hand, the truest heroism for the right and the greatest devotion to the Truth in hearts that God has touched. We have a work to do, as great as our forefathers and, perhaps, far greater. The enemies of Truth are more numerous and subtle than ever and the needs of the Church are greater than at any preceding time. If we are not debtors to the present, then men were never debtors to their age and their time. Brethren, we are debtors to the hour in which we live. Oh, that we might stamp it with Truth and that God might help us to impress upon its wings some proof that it has not flown by neglected and unheeded." -- C.H. Spurgeon . . . "If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." John 8:31, 32 . . . . .

It is vitally important to know and to understand the times in which we live, and what the Scriptures have to say about it. 

I would encourage you, all of us, to take the time to search the Scriptures...daily...to see what God has said in His Prophetic Word, and to pray for understanding, that we might know the truth, and are well equipped and ready for what is yet to come.

In Matthew 24:37-39, Jesus told his disciples, But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be."

Then in verse 42, "Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come" and in verse 44, "Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh."

When it comes to the Lord's return, none of us knows the day or the hour.  So what do we know?

There is a wonderful little booklet entitled, “101 Last Days Prophecies” written by the late Jim Tetlow, of Eternal Productions, a dear friend and brother in Christ. 
The Bible foretells many signs that would culminate in the last days. Jesus indicated these signs would arise together as His return drew near (Matthew 24). Though many of these prophecies won’t climax until the tribulation period, our generation is the first to see every trend in place. As the final seconds of this age tick away, these events will come into even clearer focus. Keep in mind as you read through this list that these prophecies were penned 1900 to 3500 years ago! How does this relate to you? The last several pages provide the answer – you need to read them carefully.
This booklet is a wonderful resource to have. If you would like a copy, you can still order one from Amazon, or read online at: Eternal Productions - 101 Last Days Prophecies

The dark season in which we live, the cultural shift from biblical Christianity to paganism, the many strange events that are taking place in our world, are happening at an alarming rate. This world is taking on a new form in a 'New Age' era that many professed believers are getting caught up in, and many are being led astray.

Whenever I see this happening, I have to wonder how this could happen to someone who has at one time embraced biblical truth, then turned away to embrace a lie.

The Bible indicates that there will be a great apostasy during the end times. The “great apostasy” is mentioned in 2 Thessalonians 2:3. The KJV calls it the “falling away,” while the NIV and ESV call it “the rebellion.” And that’s what an apostasy is: a rebellion, an abandonment of the truth. The end times will include a wholesale rejection of God’s revelation, a further “falling away” of an already fallen world.

Jesus warned the disciples concerning the final days in Matthew 24:10–12: At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold.” These are the characteristics of the great apostasy of the end times.

While true Believers are excited about the SIGNS OF HIS COMING,  there are some who are fearful and uncertain.


It's true that we are being bombarded daily with all kinds of “ALARMING NEWS." Many of our government leaders are corrupt, immoral, anti-Christian, anti-American, globalist funded dismantlers of our Constitution. 
When they are not spewing out their extreme liberal ideology, they are passing laws to protect special interest groups, while at the same time criminalizing freedom of speech, religion, and stripping parents of their parental rights. 
New abortion laws allow for the murder of a baby up to delivery.  If the baby is born and the mother doesn't want it, abortion doctors will leave the baby on a table alone, and wait for it to die.  Euthanasia laws are in the making.  There is same sex marriage, and adoption.  Then there is the dozens of made up new genders and transgender whores reading to young children in local libraries.

The Roman Catholic Pope who denies most all of literal interpretation of scripture, is working endlessly to unite the world's religions. I wonder who he serves??? Certainly not the God of the Bible.

Our Morals and Values are in a downward spiral. Even our Christian faith is being challenged not only by the world, but by apostates, false teachers and their followers who claim Christianity, but deny the Word of God.

The overwhelming influx of immigration from enemy foreign countries is literally changing the landscape in the Western world.  Islam is spreading like wildfire, and has made it's way into western government positions, pushing for Sharia law to be passed even here in the states.

Floods, Droughts, Fires, Famines, Record Cold, Hurricanes, Earthquakes, Tornados, Hurricanes and Monsoons...grow more intense each and every year.

There are wars and rumors of wars.  Israel being threatened by the entire world....and the list goes on....

Even More Signs - A New Age With An Antichrist Agenda

Randall Baer, a former top New Age leader who became a born again Christian expresses the nature of the conspiracy we must contend with in his revealing bestseller, Inside The New Age Nightmare

He wrote,
“This agenda is nothing less than the complete revolutionizing of the very foundations of not only America but the entire world. Such a plan calls for the total restructuring of planetary civilization into an enlightened One World Federation in which national boundaries and sovereignty are secondary, and ‘planetary citizenship’ in the ‘global village’ is the order of the day. This (conspiracy) offers a world in desperate need a grand solution to profound global problems. Apparent world peace and unprecedented opportunities … are to be unveiled.”
This is nothing more than a mask hiding the coming of the antichrist.

From Let Us Reason Ministries: 
The Rise of the New Age - The New Age is all the modern day occult-based practices and philosophies, world religions united into a one world religion. This encompasses a wide range of religions from spirit worship, Eastern mysticism, Mind-science religion, and even psychology. Its purpose is to rediscover the god-within us all. People have to look no further than themselves, for all of life is answers, everything one needs to know is already inside themselves.
IS A PLANNED INFLUENCE THAT AFFECTS OUR EDUCATION SYSTEM (GOALS 2000) OUR WORK PLACES AND THE WAY WE DO BUSINESS. It is to make global citizens through our educational systems so we can work together as international citizens in a one world.

They know by influencing our children we will then experience a paradigm shift for the next generation. Our society will change from the grass roots level on up.

“We need a new way of governing the whole planet. The problems we face today are bigger than any single country.” (Children's Task Force on Agenda 21, Rescue Mission Planet Earth: A Youth Edition of Agenda 21, Peace Child Charitable Trust, p.81,1994 )

Working to change the way we view and treat sicknesses and diseases. To change traditional medicine to alternate means. To treat the mind the Spirit and emotions beside the body (WHOLENESS).
The concept is to give people a choice of healing naturally instead of organized modern medicine with its drugs. By healing the spirit or aligning it, they believe we can achieve perfect health. What you don’t know can be harmful because their treatments have spiritual practices contrary to Christianity. It leads one into a spiritual worldview that believes death is only a transition and that the dead can contact us.
The focus is self. Through various spiritual techniques one goes inside them-selves to find their answers. Various workshops are used as an environment for change. It promotes the powers of the mind, teaching that we all have unlimited abilities and that to think of oneself as sinful is not correct.

Its purpose is to change the way we perceive things, a new paradigm for living is offered. But first the old must be removed. The New Age Movement is like a sponge that attempts to absorb all religions, and beliefs from different cultures into one spiritual, socio-economical unified system. The problem is sponges soak up the bad as well as the good.
“Marilyn Ferguson's book “Aquarian Conspiracy' is the Bible of much of the New Age Movement. She describes dramatic revolutions of understanding … sudden liberation from old limits … Each of these discoveries is properly described as a 'paradigm shift ,'a term introduced by Thomas Kuhn....A paradigm is a scheme for understanding and explaining certain aspects of reality. A paradigm shift is a distinctly new way of thinking about old problems … the problem is that you can't embrace the new paradigm unless you let go o the old.” (NEW AGE CONFUSION David A. Lewis, p. 23-24).
This encompasses the political agenda of how we view governments and laws to bring us into unity as global citizens instead of separate countries. World trade and commerce will unite us as global citizens for the 21st century.

On Jan 30, 1976 a document was signed by 32 senators and 92 representatives called the declaration of interdependence(,) “Two centuries ago our forefathers brought forth a new nation now we must join with others to bring forth a new world order.”

Robert Muller former Asst. Sect. General of the UN “The United Nations is much more than a political organization, it is a paradigm, the expression of a deep, evolutionary change which in the long run will transform the world for the best. (New Genesis, p. 122)

'No one can stop evolution ... A new world is being born in the UN.' (My Testament, p. 17)
Political unification goes hand in hand with spiritual unification.


The storm clouds are gathering and closing in the distance. We are living in the days of Noah just like the scriptures foretold. When you see prophecy happening right before your eyes, I'd say that Jesus is coming very soon to take us home.

Life is not getting any easier, in fact it's going to get worse, much worse. How do I know? Because scripture tells us this. Jesus said that there would be perilous times coming. He warned us of what the conditions would be in the last age. We not only need to be aware, but we need to be ready. 

The Good News is that God has a plan for us!

Are you worried, stressed and scared? You don’t have to be, because there is an answer to all of this turmoil. In a word, JESUS!  Turn to Him, trust in Him.  Where else in this world can you find TRUTH? We have the Bible, the INSPIRED, GOD BREATHED HOLY SCRIPT, and it is in the contents of this BOOK that you will find answers, and peace of mind.

In Luke 21:33 Jesus proclaims,
“Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.”
His Words are sure, accurate, and trustworthy; divine, gracious, mighty, spiritual, life-giving, incomparable, everlasting and RELEVANT TO OUR LIVES.

In Matthew 24 Jesus and His disciples travel up to the Mt. of Olives. It is here that He warns them of the coming “Great Deception”, and instructs them to, “Take heed that no man deceive you.” (Verse 4) “Take Heed . . .” Literally in the Greek translation, the word is “blepo” which means to behold, beware, to perceive, to regard. In the Webster’s Dictionary it means to guard, to pay attention to. “Take Heed that no man deceive you.” Isn’t it plain to see that there is much deception in this world, and an ever greater 'deception' coming?  Jesus gave warning of this more than 2,000 years ago so that we ourselves would not be deceived.

Satan’s master plan is to deceive as many as he can away from God and the salvation he freely offers to all.  Satan knows his days are numbered, he will destroy as many souls as he can before the Lord destroys him.

Brothers and sisters, take heed.  Stay close to the Lord. Stay in His Word.

"God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble. Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded." James 4:6-8

It is my prayer for you that you will KNOW GOD’S WORD, and draw close to the Lord in these days of GREAT DECEPTION, that you will not be fall prey to every wind of false doctrine. Jesus’ plan for you is to save you from the Wrath That Is To Come.

The Bible is clear about our hope and salvation,
“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. 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: 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. Wherefore, comfort one another with these words.” I Thessalonians 4:15-18

“Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.” I Corinthians 15:51,52

Are you ready or are you still warming your hands at the enemy’s fire?  Repent and turn to the Lord.

Have you received salvation through Jesus Christ? If you haven’t, don’t wait, do it now and be assured of where you will spend eternity.

“For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23

"For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." Romans 6:23
"There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death."  Proverbs 6:25
"As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one." Romans 3:10

"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast." Romans 2:8-9

"And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire."  Revelation 20:15

"That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again." John 3:6-7
"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." John 14:6

"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him." Romans 5:8-9

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16

"For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures." 1 Corinthians 15:3-4 
"Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot." 1 Peter 1:18-19
"But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name." John 1:12

"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved."  Romans 10:9

"For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." Romans 10:10
"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." Romans 10:13
If you would like to be forgiven of your sins and place your trust in Jesus Christ, look to Him and pray. Acknowledge your sins before Him and ask Him to cleanse you of all unrighteousness through the blood of Jesus Christ. Invite Him into your heart as Lord and Savior of your life. Read your Bible daily and obey the Scriptures, so that you will learn and grow in the knowledge of the Lord.

Being convinced that I am a sinner, and knowing that Christ died for the ungodly, I humbly turn to you Lord with a penitent heart to receive Jesus as my Saviour. With your help I shall confess Him before all men and follow Him as my Lord and King.

The Bible states that in the last days, many will not endure sound doctrine. Where will you stand?

awesome exhortation!

Lest those who think that rejecting the Gospel will have no pertinent ramifications, they'd do well to read 2Th 1:7-9 "And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels,In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;"

Even pastors and Bible teachers whose emphasis is on teaching the Word of God, often times shy away from prophecy and eschatology specifically, particularly where Christ Jesus' Second Coming is concerned. "We want to be practical in our Christianity, shoe leather type theology, how best to live our lives as Christians."

I agree! Unless we are LIVING the Life, and WALKING the Talk, our Christian faith is a sham; HOWEVER having said that, we must remind ourselves:

1 Jon 3:2-3 -
"Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure."

Purity of heart? remaining in a state of hope and diligence? One can't get more practical than that!

The LORD Jesus also stated that we are to "watch and pray, and be ready always, for you know not when your Lord will come."

Unless we are diligently studying the scriptural prophecies, and scrutinizing the world scene in all of its various spheres (political, economic, social, spiritual, etc) how can we discern the signs of the times?

Lastly, let those who want to say that prophecy is peripheral doctrine and not essential to Christians, read-
Rev 19:10 "And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: FOR THE TESTIMONY OF JESUS IS THE SPIRIT OF PROPHECY (emph. mine)."

I submit that Jesus is rather

vital to Christian doctrine and all else Christian, and His Testimony is the very heart ("spirit") of prophecy!

I am SO BLESSED to see saints eagerly awaiting the LORD's RETURN, and being zealous in sharing God's Absolute and Incontestable Truth and Grace with the body of Christ and the lost souls God is yearning to see enter His family!

Hi James,

Thank you for your comments!

I hope and pray that those who check out our site will be encouraged and inspired to take the message to everyone they meet.

We still are very blessed in this country with the freedoms that we have, and the ability to communicate the Good News of Jesus Christ to everyone we meet.

I certainly pray for repentance and revival in the Church. I pray that the Church would honor God by honoring His Word, and walking in obedience to it.

May we all have the integrity of heart to live a life that shines bright in this world, and that is pleasing to our Heavenly Father.

God Bless You,
A.M. Kisly
