BIG :: By Daymond Duck

It seems like Bible prophecy teachers are using the word “big” more and more lately.

“Big,” not as in considerable size, huge, giant, titanic, humongous, etc.

“Big” as in extremely important, major, consequential, incredibly significant, etc.

  • Israel’s possession of 4 perfect red heifers is “big” because they haven’t had one for about 2,000 years, and it could mean the Temple may soon be rebuilt.
  • Israel’s attack on the Iranian consulate in Syria is “big” because it means Israel is now going after Iran instead of Iran’s proxies, and it could mean the Israel-Hamas war will spread and the Battle of Gog and Magog is close.
  • Biden’s efforts to undermine Prime Min. Netanyahu is “big” because it could mean the “curse” may soon fall on America, and it is pushing Israel to depend more on Jehovah.
  • A Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) with credit scores is “big” because it indicates government plans to track all buying and selling.

This is the point: we are witnessing an undeniable big-time convergence of Bible prophecies that are extremely important.

Here are some recent reports that seem to indicate that the end of the age is close.

One, concerning another pandemic and a global population reduction: on Mar. 29, 2024, one of the world’s leading virologists predicted that a ‘massive tsunami’ of ‘chaos’ and ‘death’ is about to decimate the global Covid mRNA-vaccinated population.”

He predicted that there will be a ‘huge, huge wave’ of illness and deaths in the coming weeks (perhaps before the next U.S. election so it can be used to impact the outcome and protect the criminals that pushed mRNA vaccinations on the world) among those vaccinated for Covid.

I cannot prove that this virologist is right, but if it happens, it will be big.

Two, concerning the Battle of Gog and Magog: it has been reported that Iran sent a message to the U.S. through the Sultanate of Oman that the Islamic Republic intends to directly strike Israel unless the U.S. guarantees an immediate permanent ceasefire in Gaza and no Israeli ground invasion of Rafah.

On Apr. 3, 2024, Israel responded by calling up its reserve forces and canceling the leave of all combat units.

Israel’s Defense Minister said, “We are not seeking war with Lebanon (Iran’s proxy), and I can tell you that such a war will be a difficult challenge for Israel, but it would be catastrophic for Hezbollah and for Lebanon, not least for Beirut and the south.”

It is estimated that Iran has helped Hezbollah acquire about 200,000 rockets and missiles.

Without a doubt, the damage to Israel will be great, but the damage to Hezbollah and possibly Iran will be significantly worse.

(More: On Apr. 5, 2024, Israel temporarily closed 28 of its embassies and consulates due to Iranian threats.)

(More: On Apr. 8, 2024, Israeli jets targeted a village in Lebanon and eliminated a Hezbollah field commander.)

Three, concerning the Battle of Gog and Magog: on Apr. 3, 2024, Erick Stakelbeck (The Watchman Newscast) reported that Russia has acknowledged that it has built three military observation posts in Syria this year on Syria’s border with Israel.

Russia appears to have built these military observation posts to monitor Israel’s activities in Syria.

This is big because the Bible teaches that Russia, Iran, Turkey, and others will attack Israel in the latter years and latter days; God will destroy their armies; it will take 7 months to bury the dead and 7 years to burn the weapons (Ezek. 38-39).

When they attack Israel in the latter years and latter days, it will be a clear sign that history has reached the very end of the latter days.

Four, concerning the Battle of Gog and Magog: on Apr, 9, 2024, an article in The Times of Israel states that Israel is preparing (conducting Air Force drills) to strike Iran’s nuclear plants if faced with a retaliatory attack for the death of an Iranian commander.

Five, concerning all world leaders turning against Israel and Biden’s efforts to undermine the Netanyahu government and prevent the defeat of Hamas: in a phone call on Apr. 4, 2024, Biden demanded that Netanyahu declare an immediate ceasefire in the Israel-Hamas war or risk the loss of U.S. support.

Biden now appears to be a spokesman for Hamas, and it will be next to impossible for Israel to get the hostages released if they cannot attack Hamas.

(My opinion: Biden has now put the U.S. on Satan’s side in the Muslim effort to destroy Israel. His claim that Israel has America’s unwavering support is a big lie.)

(More: On Apr.4, 2024, Netanyahu met with a visiting Republican congressional delegation and told them, “There’s an attempt to ram a Palestinian state down our throats.”)

(More: On Apr. 4, 2024 (the day Biden threatened Netanyahu with the loss of U.S. support), a bolt of lightning struck the torch on the Statue of Liberty. I cannot dogmatically say it was a warning from God, but it is interesting that lightning struck the statue on the same day Biden threatened Israel.)

(More: On Apr. 5, 2024, the head of the American Center for Law and Justice said, “The implication for that is that America has now become Israel’s tactical enemy. In real terms, in practical terms, this is impossible, demanding that Israel lose this war.  Israel cannot afford to lose this war. This is an existential war.”)

(More: On Apr. 5. 2024 (the day after Biden threatened Netanyahu), a 4.8 earthquake struck near Whitehouse Station, NJ. It rattled buildings in a large area of the northeast U.S., including New York City (about 45 miles away). An estimated 43 million people felt it, and it interrupted a UN Security Council meeting while attendees were discussing the situation in Gaza.)

(More: Following Israel’s admission that 2 Israeli officers had mistakenly killed 7 humanitarian relief workers in Gaza, 40 Democrats sent a letter to Pres. Biden urging him to halt the shipment of weapons to Israel until a full investigation is completed. On Apr. 9, 2024, the Wall Street Journal editorial board wrote, “Denying weapons to Israel in the middle of a war is betrayal.” They called Nancy Pelosi a “sunshine ally.”)

Six, concerning the Israeli-Hamas war:

  • Biden hinted that the U.S. might curtail its shipment of weapons and ammunition to Israel if Israel attacked Rafah.
  • Biden allowed the UN Security Council to adopt a resolution demanding an immediate ceasefire between Israel and Hamas.
  • Biden demanded that Netanyahu declare an immediate ceasefire in the Israel-Hamas war or risk the loss of U.S. support.

(More: On Apr.7, 2024, the Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives said it is time to stop lecturing Israel on how to defend itself when terrorists attack it. He called upon Washington to unite in its support for our ally Israel.)

(More: On Apr. 7, 2024, Muslims in Dearborn (the jihad capital of America), Michigan, marched and shouted, “Death to America” and “Death to Israel.”)

(My opinion: Biden lost the war in Afghanistan, he is trying to force Israel to lose the war in Gaza, he refuses to close America’s border with Mexico, and there is little doubt that he intends to surrender the sovereignty of the U.S. to the New World Order. If Israel does not already realize it, she will soon realize that the U.S. is no longer a reliable partner.)

Seven, Jesus said one of the signs of His Second Coming would be wars and rumors of wars.

On Apr. 9, 2024, the EU’s chief diplomat said,

  • “War is certainly looming around us (…), and a high-intensity, conventional war in Europe is no longer a fantasy.”
  • “The US umbrella, which we have relied on since the Cold War, may not be open all the time.”
  • “Maybe, depending on who is ruling Washington, we cannot rely on America to protect us.”

Eight, concerning the days of Lot and the moral decline of the U.S.,

  • Utah has put a man who claims he is a woman in prison with male prisoners.
  • He wants prison officials to provide him with women’s clothes and women’s makeup, give him hormone therapy, use female pronouns when they talk to him, put him in with female prisoners, and have female guards pat him down when it is necessary.
  • Prison officials said they are following the law by refusing his requests.
  • On Apr. 2, 2024, the U.S. Dept. of Justice sued the state of Utah to force compliance with the prisoner’s requests.

(My opinion: Millions of dollars are being wasted on things like this, and many people who really need help cannot get it.)

Nine, concerning the days of Lot and a departing from the faith in the Roman Catholic Church: on Apr. 3, 2024, the Vatican approved a homosexual priest for the position of Dean of Theology at the Philosophical-Theological College in Brixen starting on Sept. 1, 2024.

The new Dean has made it clear that he wants a “change of mind” in what the Catholic Church believes about homosexuality.

  • Officials in Qatar and Egypt that have been working on a ceasefire with Hamas releasing 40 hostages (including all the women and men who are sick and elderly) said Hamas has indicated it is currently unable to identify and track down 40 Israeli hostagesthat meet those conditions for the first phase of a ceasefire deal.
  • The three sons of Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh (and two of his grandsons) were killed in Gaza when the car they were riding in was bombed.
  • Israel has eliminated numerous terrorists in central Gaza in the last few days.

FYI: God does not send anyone to Hell (all of us are born with a sin nature and destined to go to Hell because we sin), but God has provided a way (Jesus) for everyone to go to Heaven (and He is the only way to get there; John 14:6).

Finally, are you Rapture Ready?

If you want to be rapture ready and go to heaven, you must be born again (John 3:3). God loves you, and if you have not done so, sincerely admit that you are a sinner; believe that Jesus is the virgin-born, sinless Son of God who died for the sins of the world, was buried, and raised from the dead; ask Him to forgive your sins, cleanse you, come into your heart and be your Saviour; then tell someone that you have done this.
