Hi

I don't think the Lord would have given this alert if the day of great shaking was so very distant as to make this alert meaningless for us. 

Personally, I began again earlier this year to make some preparations, as I had pretty much rested from preparations from 2013 thru 2019.  Now, I have some additional items to add and update and I want to get those done in the next month if possible.

My wife and I love living in the mountains of Tennessee.  God has made room for us.  We will add your health to our prayers.

Thanks,
Stephen

I have learned that when the Lord says soon to you it doesn't necessarily have the same meaning that we would apply to it.  That being said, this isn't a very encouraging word to America.  

How are you doing?  How do you like living in Tennessee.  Sure different than Florida in temperature. 

I have contracted a disease called Morgellons and am taking a protocol from Logos Nutritionals and am much better.  It takes around 18 months on this protocol (all natural) to heal.  A lot of people with Morgellons also have lyme disease - I don't know if I do or not as the Western Block test for lyme isn't reliable, but if it is correct I don't also have lyme.  It is thought that chem trails are responsible for this making it a man made disease..  People all over the world have it but the medical profession has NO clue about it or how to treat it.  I'm blessed that I caught it early where a lot of people suffer for 2,3 or 4 years or longer before finding this protocol to help get well.

I have been reading the book of Isaiah.  It can be rather confusing as the names of the cities, countries and people - a lot of them aren't commonly known to me who they are so I thought I might try to see where I could find information on this to help better comprehend it.  I try to read daily but do miss some days.  I realize that I have read the Bible for 30 or more years but not a lot in the OT.

My husband doesn't agree with my take on "things" Biblically or situation in America so its hard to do much of any preparing.  Perhaps I wouldn't believe as I do if I hadn't had dreams from the Lord about America.

Blessings to you and Mary,
Ruth Ann Martin

TODAY'S WORD
The word of the Lord came to me, beginning at the morning of Sunday, November 17, 2019, through the afternoon of Tuesday, November 19, 2019, when I heard the Holy Spirit speak the title of this article: "Near Term Proximity Alert". I knew then that I was to write about that which I have been given thus far. I will present only that which the Lord gave and I will not speculate into any greater detail or specificity than that which the Lord presented to me.

1) Ezekiel 6 and 7 were given to my wife, prophetess Mary, on the morning of Sunday, November 17, 2019. At the same time, the Holy Spirit quickened to me all that He has revealed to me regarding the number 17 and its' biblical association with the wrath of God and escapes from the wrath of God.

2) My wife read Ezekiel 6 and 7 to me on the afternoon of Monday, November 18. While she was reading to me, the Holy Spirit quickened to my remembrance that He had given Ezekiel 7 to me in dramatic fashion on August 12, 2001: 30 days prior to the 911 attacks in New York City. The End Has Come Upon AmericaThat word included this excerpt from Ezekiel 7:
"The word of the LORD came to me: Son of man, this is what the Sovereign LORD says to America: The end! The end has come upon the four corners of the land. The end is now upon you and I will unleash my anger against you. I will judge you according to your conduct and repay you for all your detestable practices. I will not look on you with pity or spare you; I will surely repay you for your conduct and the detestable practices among you. Then you will know that I am the LORD.This is what the Sovereign LORD says: Disaster! An unheard of disaster is coming. The end has come! The end has come! It has roused itself against you. It has come! Doom has come upon you-you who dwell in the land. The time has come, the day is near; there is panic, not joy, upon the mountains. I am about to pour out my wrath on you and spend my anger against you; I will judge you according to your conduct and repay you for all your detestable practices. I will not look on you with pity or spare you; I will repay you in accordance with your conduct and the detestable practices among you. Then you will know that it is I the LORD who strikes the blow. The day is here! It has come! Doom has burst forth, the rod has budded, arrogance has blossomed! Violence has grown into a rod to punish wickedness; none of the people will be left; none of that crowd, no wealth, nothing of value. The time has come, the day has arrived. Let not the buyer rejoice nor the seller grieve, for wrath is upon the whole crowd. The seller will not recover the land he has sold as long as both of them live, for the vision concerning the whole crowd will not be reversed. Because of their sins, not one of them will preserve his life. Though they blow the trumpet and get everything ready, no one will go into battle, for my wrath is upon the whole crowd. Outside is the sword, inside are the plague and famine; those in the country will die by the sword, and those in the city will be devoured by famine and plague. All who survive and escape will be in the mountains, moaning like doves of the valleys, each because of his sins."

3) I went out to walk on the afternoon of Monday, November 18 and God showed me a vision of me, praying at my bench that overlooks Scott Creek, that runs along the Western edge of my property here in Tennessee. So, I began to walk over there and as I got there and began to pray, the Holy Spirit quickened everything to me from the Compression Vision that I had at the Washington Court Hotel in Washington, D.C., during our meeting there. The Compression Judgement And Prophetic Delays There, among other things, God revealed that:
"The horror that I beheld now as I watched this accordion file compress in my vision is that now, due to all of the delays that have been granted due to the prayers of the saints, wave two, wave three, wave four and wave five have now all been compressed to come in without any interruption during the remaining time from July 2013 through the end of 2015 (or later if their prayers for delay have moved back the end point). Once the roads close in America, free unrestricted travel cross country in America will not be restored. There will be no time granted for restocking supplies. God will not grant any respite at all. No breaks! All travel to other places will have to be on foot, through the wilderness trails, once the roads close. This will be an unimaginably horrible time. This compression judgement will lay at the feet of those who have prayed for all of these prophetic delays for all eternity."

4) The compression vision came as I was preaching on July 4, 2013 from Leviticus 26 about the five waves of seven fold greater judgements that God said He would pour out upon consistent and repetitive disobedience. One of those five waves was poured out, beginning with September 29, 2008, as America suffered a terrible financial crash. Four more are prophesied to hit America. The terrible news from that "Compression Vision" was that these waves would be compressed and run together because of all the prophetic delays that God has already granted in reprieves due to prayers and intercessions of Christians since the mid 1990's.

5) Finally then, on the afternoon of Tuesday, November 19, 2019, I heard the Holy Spirit speak the title of this article: "Near Term Proximity Alert". Both you and I must continue to seek the Lord to know exactly how much time of additional grace this refers to. I knew then that I was to write about that which I have been given thus far: nothing more. I know that the Lord has given many previous warnings that when this next set of four waves of judgement commence, it will have something to do with a "17th day" of the month. The next "17th day" will fall on December 17, 2019. That day will be 30 days from the commencement of this period of revelation that began on November 17, 2019. That would mirror my 2001 experience previously related to you regarding Ezekiel 7 and the 911 attacks, but it is no guarantee that grace will expire at that time.. I simply present December 17 to you as a day to watch and pray over. Other "17th days" that will follow could also qualify and finally, I am led to watch and pray regarding Tebeth 17, the fourth Hebrew secular month, for which I have previous warnings. Tebeth 17 will fall on sundown, January 13, 2020.

6) We have just reached a full ten year period since the first wave of judgement hit this land in 2008/2009. God had brought that first wave of judgement in to hit exactly seventeen years after He had given me my first prophecy regarding the time of the end and events to come in America. He had revealed prior to that time that He would commence in fulfilling all the prophecies and visions He has given to me on the seventeenth anniversary of when those revelations began to come forth. Seventeen Years And Then The Events Will Come So, this prophecy is not a thing whereof I have any doubt whatsoever. The four, compressed waves will most certainly come upon America; they will be unimaginably horrible and they will flow consecutively without any break or respite. Now, God has issued a warning that this is a NEAR TERM PROXIMITY ALERT. This is already a proven prophecy. It will most certainly flow forth in God's time and that time is near, says the Lord.

7) God has used this ten year pause period to make his prophets appear to be false, just as Has done many times in the past by delaying and thereby provoking the scoffers and mockers to arise. Jeremiah experienced this and now, so have I and so have you. I had warned my prophetic partner that God would most likely do this very thing when we met to pray for a week in Virginia in 2008. He was fixated on the year 2012 as the end date for all things American, but I had my doubts, and history has proved me right. Very few remain vigilant in any way regarding these things of prophecy, but God has released this word to those few of you who continue to watch and pray and wait for all that God has revealed. Those few prudent ones who still are able to see in the Spirit can see that danger is approaching, and you will make the appropriate preparation.

Past Meets Future #mi

Who will you trust to interpret prophecy? A minister who takes down a six figure salary from a church, sells books and has his church collecting tithes, first-fruits and three offering pulls, chasing after every red cent he can grab? Do you really think he will tell you anything controversial or novel that might decrease the take?

Look to God, open your spirits and engage your brains. The Historicists brought us to the French Revolution and to the fall of the Papacy at Rome. I received in vision that future economic troubles will begin at France. Next month, a hard Brexit is scheduled, with incalculable effects on the Euro. France has large debt but is too small to print their own money. I smell near future risk. Paris Vision

Historicists brought us to the fulfillment of the 6th vial: the Turkish Woe, with the dissolution of the Ottomon Turk empire in 1923 with expectations among some of a future invigoration of it. I received word in 1992 that Great Tribulation would begin in Turkey and the Slavic Lands. Years ago, the Lord said to me: "Watch Turkey". Now, Turkey, straddling East and West for several years, wants nuclear weapons. I perceive current risk. Watch Turkey!

You are all walking around, believing interpretations of bible prophecy that you were taught by men who were not prophets. They had their motivations. The question is: do you want to know the truth or not? Most people go through life and never make a choice about whom they will serve. Choose you this day whom you will serve! Promontory Point"

I have been working for the last several years to appropriately document the historical fulfillment of prophecies that have already occurred.  This trail leads up to the French Revolution and the fall of the Papacy.

The other big prophetic push in my ministry has always been that God reveals to me the future things.  I was shown an actual, open, Ezekiel style vision in November, 1991 where God took me high in space and I then saw the Eiffel tower.  Somehow, I "saw" financial collapse and anarchy spreading out from Paris to the whole world.

Jesus was with me in space:  behind me.  He then said "in sixty days, I will shake the Earth will great earthquakes and great floods.  So, the events in Paris will trigger this terrible financial collapse and that will lead into the double judgements, so it is all one big connected, as it were, railroad.  I did not know hardly anything about the importance of the French Revolution in Paris in 1991, but I know all about it today.

That financial collapse will be like nothing anyone has seen.  All paper money will become worthless.  There have been some events, like the Weimar Republic collapse, that are close to what will occur.  Silver coins will be useful for a time.  Then, barter will be the only thing remaining.

There has been a couple articles on yahoo about the Cascadia Region and the EQ that looks like it is heating up to go off.  Apparently it is being watched carefully.  I was unaware of this as my attn has always been on the one in the Midwest as it is the closest to where we live in Michigan. 

Our weather has been beautiful the last few days except for a good steady rain most of the day Saturday.  Cool at night and warm but not too warm during the day.  My family was able to get all their crops planted about a week late.  They are doing well as we have had fairly consistent rain but not like it was in the spring.  I read that prices are going up for food due to many farmers in the Midwest not being able to plant crops due to flooding etc from the abundant rain.

I was in Paris, France about 25 years ago and was introduced to round abouts there, now we have them in Michigan.  The ones in Paris are much simpler then the ones here.  Its funny in a way that you mentioned The French Revolution because when we were in London on the same trip when we were in Paris, we saw the play LesMiserables about the French Revolution.

I have been hearing a fair amount about the financial status of our govt debt and our inability to pay it back and America going bankrupt, recently.  What do you know about this and the effects it will have on Americans.

The Lord recalled this event to me this morning by His Spirit, as I was praying about the coming together of the prophecies. This is really more of an image than any complicated word, so I will begin with the image of Promontory Point, UT. Perhaps, it will help the reader tie together the various concepts I present on my website.

May 10, 1869. a little more than 150 years ago, the presidents of the Union Pacific and Central Pacific railroads met in Promontory, Utah, and drove a ceremonial last spike into a rail line that connects their railroads. Transcontinental railroad travel was now possible for the first time in U.S. history. This ended the long history of westward travel by wagon train. Three companies worked together to accomplish this: two combined their efforts, working eastward from California. One pushed westward from Iowa.

I was pondering these things as I have just completed the 09/01/2017 (Updated 09/14/2019) PROPHECY: Revelation Spreadsheet Analysis Tool. This Spreadsheet primarily presents the historical way in which the Book of Revelation events have been fulfilled and it begins with the time of John and runs until the present day and then into the future.

Let us start looking at prophecy as if it were a railroad, travelling down the train tracks toward Promontory Point, from the symbolic West: the past. Consider the simple tracking of the development of these beasts. We see that the Rise of the pagan Roman Empire: a beast with seven heads and ten horns (with crowns on the seven heads), received a fatal head wound in 476 AD with the fall of the Roman Empire. This first fatal head wound came about through a series of attacks from Goths who were residing in the present day areas of Spain, France and areas North of Italy up to the Black Sea. We are told in Revelation 13:3 that this fatal head wound would be healed.

Travelling further East, next to arise, we then see the rise of a second beast, having seven heads and ten horns (with crowns on the ten horns). This ten king empire headed by the Papacy formed in 533 AD and began to fall in 1793 AD in Paris, France when this beast received its' fatal head wound. By 1868, The Pope had been arrested and Rome had been occupied. We are not told anywhere in a clear fashion that this beast will be healed of its' fatal head wound, yet this is what history reveals. Perhaps, this is one possible interpretation of what is hinted at in Revelation 17:8 where:

"The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is."

Truly, this second, Papacy related beast appeared to be dead in 1868, yet Mussolini restored the Vatican to Papal control in 1920 and today, nearly all Christians walk around believing in end times doctrine regarding the rapture, the antichrist, a rebuilt temple and a host of other events they believe will occur that all originated with the Pope's men.

So, evidently, this second beast has been healed, once again, but the previous two incarnations of this beast lead us to believe that it will oppress by the same spirit, but the form of its' operation will differ in appearance. Both of the two previous incarnations of the beast were killers: the Papacy related beast that controlled ten kings killed more than 50 million people. How will this present day beast kill? I suspect it will kill, perhaps primarily, through false doctrine, as explained above. Believers will fall away when tribulation arises and no rapture provides a rescue. That killing will be eternal killing.

Let us now change our vantage point, and start looking at it, travelling down the train tracks toward Promontory Point, from the symbolic East: the future. The Lord began revealing future things to me in 1991. This is the track He started me out on because I was a futurist at that point, believing in the left behind and all of the other false doctrine right along with the rest of you, because that is what I was taught from pulpits and study bibles. It did not take long for me to have problems in believing the pre tribulation rapture theory, but I was receiving various visions of tremendous catastrophic events that were still future.

Very early in my ministry, I saw a vision of a re-enacted French Revolution that would sweep the world. In that, there is a lot of evidence that many of these already fulfilled, past events will be fulfilled in a wider scale in the not too distant future. Read my article: "European Open Vision and A Financial Reverse Barometer" This vision showed me that a worldwide financial collapse and spread of anarchy lies ahead that will spread out from Paris.

Later, after the receipt of many prophecies, words and visions and collaboration with other prophets, I was shown that this time of tremendous financial and governmental upheaval will lead, inexorably into the double judgements of Revelation 18:4. The contents of these double judgements I have divided into seven types of Tier One judgements: all of which will be double judgements. You can read about them here: "Report From The Tower-The Double Judgements"

You will notice that the two train tracks meet at Paris, which for me, is my Promontory Point.

Stephen L. Bening

Truly, this second, Papacy related beast appeared to be dead in 1868, yet Mussolini restored the Vatican to Papal control in 1920 and today, nearly all Christians walk around believing in end times doctrine regarding the rapture, the antichrist, a rebuilt temple and a host of other events they believe will occur that all originated with the Pope's men.

So, evidently, this second beast has been healed, once again, but the previous two incarnations of this beast lead us to believe that it will oppress by the same spirit, but the form of its' operation will differ in appearance. Both of the two previous incarnations of the beast were killers: the Papacy related beast that controlled ten kings killed more than 50 million people. How will this present day beast kill? I suspect it will kill, perhaps primarily, through false doctrine, as explained above. Believers will fall away when tribulation arises and no rapture provides a rescue. That killing will be eternal killing.

Let us now change our vantage point, and start looking at it, travelling down the train tracks toward Promontory Point, from the symbolic East: the future. The Lord began revealing future things to me in 1991. This is the track He started me out on because I was a futurist at that point, believing in the left behind and all of the other false doctrine right along with the rest of you, because that is what I was taught from pulpits and study bibles. It did not take long for me to have problems in believing the pre tribulation rapture theory, but I was receiving various visions of tremendous catastrophic events that were still future.

Very early in my ministry, I saw a vision of a re-enacted French Revolution that would sweep the world. In that, there is a lot of evidence that many of these already fulfilled, past events will be fulfilled in a wider scale in the not too distant future. Read my article: "European Open Vision and A Financial Reverse Barometer" This vision showed me that a worldwide financial collapse and spread of anarchy lies ahead that will spread out from Paris.

Later, after the receipt of many prophecies, words and visions and collaboration with other prophets, I was shown that this time of tremendous financial and governmental upheaval will lead, inexorably into the double judgements of Revelation 18:4. The contents of these double judgements I have divided into seven types of Tier One judgements: all of which will be double judgements. You can read about them here: "Report From The Tower-The Double Judgements"

You will notice that the two train tracks meet at Paris, which for me, is my Promontory Point.

TODAY'S WORD
God is bringing about a new reformation, 430 years after the first, just as Israel came out two times: 430 years apart.

He is restoring the Book of Acts church and plural eldership.

The trumpet has sounded and the elect are being gathered from the four winds to protected places: churches where His glory abides.

God is building and protecting His third day church as it grows.

Jesus is coming, but many are mistaken about it, just as the Jews were not expecting the Messiah who came to them and missed the hour of their visitation. People are expecting an imminent rapture, but Jesus will come as a refiner's fire. He will suddenly come to His temple, purge out all money chasers and remove all impediments. Many will be shocked by what occurs. Who will abide in the day of His coming? Remember Ananias and Saphira.

The bright glory of the third day is shining. Don't fight this change to hold on to your second day ministry seat, like a Saul fighting against David. You will find yourself fighting against God.

Morning has come, it's rise unstoppable, but the night is close at hand. It will bring great tribulation: much discussed on this website.

Charles Haddon Spurgeon was asked, "How do you defend the bible", which is, in essence, how do you defend the truth?

He said, "like a Lion...I open its' cage and turn it loose".

I do not present futurism like anyone else who has ever presented it.  I am a prophet of the Lord.  I present "prophetic futurism".  One historicist who attempted something future to his time was Robert Fleming.  By his time, I am referring to "post French Revolution".  He speculated that one of the 1,260 year periods that would have to do with the papacy would end in the year 2000.  At least, he was aware in 1701 that the papacy would probably still be on the Earth in the year 2000.  Has there ever been a prophet who was a historicist?  Answer:  Daniel.  So, I am not even the first.

Fleming turned out to be right.  He did arrive at the truth of the 1,260 year long prophetic ruler...of several 1,260 year long periods of great tribulation.  I use that to calculate a 1,260 term that runs from 800 AD to 2060 AD.  Plus, God has shown me several of the double judgements in vision form and has explained to me that some judgements will be double because the same scripture will be fulfilled twice.

Right now, the biggest question I can think of to get an answer from the Lord about is this:  will the prophecy about the fatal head wound to the beast be fulfilled a second time?  Will the papacy receive political power over the ten nations of Europe, or perhaps over a much wider area than that?

There are more people who are open to this truth than you think, and more will really come on board if the fatal head wound prophecy of Revelation 13:3 is fulfilled a second time.  Should that occur, it will begin the most horrific double judgement the world will ever see.

In the meantime, my job is to tell God's truth and to expose the lies that are spoken in 99.8% of the pulpits of this world.  I am teaching some people about all of it now.  Yes, the numbers who will even listen are just a few.  The Roman Catholic church has obtained doctrinal supremacy over the entirety of the Protestant and Charismatic churches in that they all preach Roman Catholic apocalyptic prophetic understanding.  Doctrinally, the fatal head wound has already been healed almost completely.  Politically, the Pope is doing everything he can to make it happen.

What you need to do is work through my seven part Puzzle Pieces series.  Take your time with it.  Then, you will see it clearly and you won't doubt it any more.  I don't have any doubt about it.  Why should you?

Hello Stephen

I believe, when you were still doing a program with Matthew Stephen, and you made some comments that caused me to ask you for more information on what you said, it was from the Lord.  I have read and reread and reread the 2 books you referred me to.  I could not read Horae Apocalypticae because I couldn't read the writing as it is written. 

The funny thing about the book "The Present Reign of Jesus Christ" is this.  I read it at night when I went to bed.  When done I must have left it on the bed.  The next morning I grabbed up the bedding to wash it and guess what - I washed the book also.  I had waited to buy it until the $90 price tag came down to $35 o n Amazon, then I bought it. And it was a used copy to but in good condition.  Well when I discovered it in my washing I was upset with myself.  I had to take every page and carefully pull it away from the next page and leave it to dry, watching it so that no 2 pages dried together.  No cover remained but the book is still intact.  The 3rd time I read it was after this mishap.  Its funny now but it wasn't then.

Now that you are bringing this teaching up, I believe it but sometimes struggle with it because I was brought up in Protestant churches and taught this until I was baptized by the Holy Spirit about the age of 40.  A lot of things changed after that and I eventually started questioning this teaching wanting to know the truth.  I couldn't make the futurist teaching work and decided the rapture came after the 7 yr tribulation and started sharing this with people.  Then I met you on the program and things changed to what I believed again.  Of course no one believes that way that I know so it sometimes is a challenge.  How do you present and deal with others who don't believe the same and just don't want to hear anything else from what they think. I don't think they will believe this unless the Lord reveals it to them.

Two people can read the same scriptures and interpret them differently.  I guess it has to be shown you by the Lord.

Blessings Ruth Ann Martin

TODAY'S WORD
John 14:30: "Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me."

We know from this verse that Satan, the "god of this world" according to 1 Corinthians, has nothing in Jesus and never did have anything. He said these words in the context where He was directing His disciples to keep His commandments, His words and His sayings. Elsewhere, He had this say regarding His doctrine:

John 7:16 "Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me. If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself."

So, there is a way to find out and know whether the doctrines we believe are from God or whether they are of the devil, or even if they are the constructs of men. We will find out the truth if we "do the will of Jesus".

We do not know exactly what Satan was coming to look for in the Son Of God, finding nothing, but we know the result: the devil couldn't do anything with Him. The devil was never able to get him sick, or down with the flu. We never hear of a coughing and sneezing Jesus. Allergies apparently had no hold on Him. No cancer could come nigh His dwelling. The devil was never able to even harass him until the time came for Him to be offered up according to the Father's will.

So, now, we come to the all important question: When the devil arrives at your house, what does he have in you?

What are you walking around with that belongs to him? What could this possibly be referring to? Perhaps, you have been tresspassing on his turf, spending time in bars and even more seedy venues. He will come to extract a toll. Perhaps he can find some sin in you? All sin belongs to him: it is his tool to separate you from God. He uses it like a prosecuting attorney to make his case of accusation regarding you before the Father. It is his evidence.

Or, perhaps, it is something else. Jesus cares so much that we keep HIS doctrines, HIS sayings and HIS commandments. Perhaps you are walking around with some of the doctrines of the devil, or sayings of the devil, or even commandments of the devil. After all, he is like a Xerox copy of God. He copies everything God does.

What doctrines, you say? What commandments?

Charles Larkin, circa 1920, was the father of modern apocalyptic prophetic teaching and understanding. His charts were the basis for all modern day futurist teaching.

Clarence Larkin's Charts and his book, Dispensational Truth, is famous in the Futurist camp. He is revered as a Saint of Futurism.

Larkin wrote in "Dispensational Truth" that his own school of thought, Futurism, was a Jesuit counter reformational scheme hatched with the intent of taking the heat off of the Pope and casting all prophetic expectation into the indeterminate future. Larkin said:

"The Futurist School interprets the language of the Apocalypse 'literally,' except such symbols as are named as such and hold that the whole of the Book, from the end of the third chapter, is yet 'future' and unfulfilled, and that the greater part of the Book, from the beginning of chapter six to the end of chapter nineteen, describes what shall come to pass during the last week of 'Daniel's Seventy Weeks.' . . . In its present form it may be said to have originated at the end of the Sixteenth Century with the Jesuit Ribera who actuated by the same motive as the Jesuit Alcazar, sought to rid the Papacy of the stigma of being called the 'Antichrist', and so referred the prophecies of the Apocalypse to the distant future. This view was accepted by the Roman Catholic Church and was for a long time confined to it, but, strange to say, it has wonderfully revived since the beginning of the Nineteenth Century, and among Protestants . . ., The "Futurist" interpretation of scripture is the one employed in this book."

The teaching of the pre-tribulation rapture and a future antichrist arise as a direct result of this approach to prophetic interpretation.

Larkin had this to say about historicism:

"The 'Historical School'. . . interprets the Apocalypse as a series of prophecies predicting the events that were to happen in the world and in the Church from John’s day to the end of time. The advocates of the School interpret the symbols of the Book of Revelation as referring to certain historical events that have and are happening in the world. They claim that "Antichrist" is a "System" rather than a 'Person', and is represented by the Harlot Church of Rome. They interpret the "Time Element" in the Book on the 'Year Day Scale.' This school has had some very able and ingenious advocates. This view, like the preceding was unknown to the early church. It appeared about the middle of the Twelfth Century, and was systematized in the beginning of the Third Century by the Abbot Joachim. Subsequently it was adopted and applied to the Pope by the forerunners and leaders of the Reformation, and may be said to have reached its zenith in Mr. Elliott's 'Horae Apocalypticae.' It is frequently called the Protestant interpretation because it regards Popery as exhausting all that has been predicted of the Antichristian power. It was a powerful and formidable weapon in the hands of the leaders of the Reformation, and the conviction of its truthfulness nerved them to 'love not their lives unto the death'. It was the secret of the martyr heroism of the Sixteenth Century."



When the prince of this world comes to visit your house, will he find anything that belongs to him?

Prophetic Historicism versus Futurism #mi

Stephen L. Bening
 

Date: 08 Aug 2019 09:06:58 -0700



TODAY'S WORD
There are two major positions when it comes to interpreting the apocalyptic prophecies of the Bible. One belief advances the premise that the prophecies of the Bible largely pertain to the end of the age, and are either being fulfilled now or are yet to come. This position is known as Futurism.

The opposing position is called Historicism. I advance Prophetic Historism because I am a prophet of the Lord Jesus Christ. Those holding the Historicist position contend that the prophecies of the Bible are fulfilled in the past and some Historicist's look for future fulfillments of those same prophecies as a continuation of events that are already in progress or, in some cases, a reenactment of something that has already occurred.

Historicism was the belief of the vast majority between 1520 and 1920. Since, 1920, Futurism has held sway

Major Historicist Positions
1. The prophecy of Daniel's 70 Weeks, found in Daniel Chapter 9 has already been fulfilled in its entirety.
2. The Antichrist is not one particular man, but has been fulfilled and is still being fulfilled by the papacy of the Roman Catholic Church.
3. The prophesied ten-horn kingdom of Revelation 13 and 17 existed at the time of the dissolution of the Roman Empire, and the papacy rose up among these ten kings.
4. The Great Tribulation lasted 1,260 years. Some Historicists believe it has passed, while others do not. Varying periods of 1,260 years, with different starting dates and ending dates, are described. Some of these dates are still considered to stretch into the future by some Historicists.
5. Matthew 24 is seen as partially fulfilled by most Historicists. Some believe it to be totally fulfilled.

The Futurist position (excerpts taken here and in other places in this article from Irvin Baxter's article: "Historicism vs Futurism")
1. There is a gap between the 69th and 70th week of Daniel's 70 Weeks" prophecy. The first 69 weeks have been fulfilled. The 70th week, a seven-year period, is yet to come to pass.
2. Though there have been many antichrists throughout the years, the Bible prophesies one Antichrist who will rule a one-world government for three and one-half years immediately before the coming of Jesus Christ at Armageddon.
3. The prophesied ten-horn kingdom is yet to appear on earth, and the Antichrist will arise among these ten kings.
4. The Great Tribulation is yet future and will last for three and one-half years. (Some Futurists believe it will last for seven years.) It will occur during the last half of Daniel's 70th week, and will be terminated when the Antichrist is destroyed by Jesus Christ at Armageddon.
5. Most of Jesus' prophecies in Matthew 24 deal with events of the endtime and have yet to be fulfilled.


Let us consider item #1 above:
Has the prophecy of Daniel's 70 Weeks already been fulfilled in its entirety?
Daniel 9:24-27

King James Version
24 "Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.
25 Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.
26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.
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."


Who is the "he" referring to in verse 27 and who will confirm the covenant for seven years? That is the important question.

Historicists believe the Messiah is the only one who could possibly have fulfilled and who will ever fulfill verse 24, and who is explicitly mentioned in verse 25 and 26 as the subject of those verses, and He is the "he" who was prophesied to confirm the covenant in verse 27. A person referred to as "the prince that shall come" in verse 26 is believed to be the Roman General Titus, who destroyed Jerusalem in 70 A.D.

Futurists teach that it will be the "prince that shall come"--the Antichrist. They cast this prophecy out to an indeterminable future.

Yes, this question is very easy to answer.

Futurists erroneously claim that Daniel 9:24-27 refers to the same "abomination of desolation" as that referred to in Daniel 11 and Daniel 12. That is not the case. There was nothing set up in the temple by the Romans during the time frame of fulfillment of this Daniel 9 prophecy (457 B.C. to 34 A.D.) Daniel 9 does not say anything at all about anyone who "shall place the abomination that maketh desolate". It is an entirely different event from that which is referred to in Daniel 11.

The Daniel 11:30-31 prophecy tells us in no uncertain terms that it is definitely an Antichrist (the king of the north) and his followers who take away the daily sacrifice and place the Abomination of Desolation. This was fulfilled in great detail by Antiochus Epiphanes in 167 B.C. The whole story is painstakingly detailed in 1 Maccabees, Chapter 1 in the Apocrypha.

30 "For the ships of Chittim shall come against him: therefore he shall be grieved, and return, and have indignation against the holy covenant: so shall he do; he shall even return, and have intelligence with them that forsake the holy covenant.
31 And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate."

This Daniel 11 passage is obviously not referring to the Messiah. Would the Messiah ever "have indignation against the holy covenant?” Would He ever "pollute the sanctuary of strength?” Obviously not! The entirety of Daniel 11:21-45 is referring to the actions of the king of the north--an antichrist named Antiochus Epiphanes, who really lived and died and fulfilled all of these things to the very letter about two hundred years before Jesus Christ was crucified and resurrected. Will this have any reenactment at the time of the end? Daniel 9 certainly has nothing to say about that or to fortell it.

Futurists are confusing the fact that Jesus Christ put an end to sacrifice and offering by pouring out His blood in an atoning sacrifcie with the actions of an antichrist, two hundred years earlier, who poured pigs blood upon the altars of Israel.

Confirming the covenant for seven years
Daniel 9:27 says that "he" will confirm the covenant for one week (seven years). Historicists say that Jesus confirmed the covenant of the New Testament during his three and one-half years of ministry. He was then crucified in the midst of the week (after 3 1/2 years), and then was caught up into heaven 43 days later. The apostles then fulfilled the balance of the seven year period in their preaching to the Jews, prior to the taking of the gospel to the Gentiles.

Futurists argue that there is no historical or biblical proof that God turned from Jew to Gentile exactly three and one-half years after the crucifixion. Admittedly, this is true, but we accept many things the bible tells us without demanding actual proof that they occurred exactly as the bible renders them. Do we demand proof that Jonah was swallowed by a great fish? Isaiah prophesied concerning the Messiah in chapter 50, verse 6 that His beard..His hair, would be plucked off. We believe that happened to Jesus, but we have no historical or biblical proof that it occurred. We know for a fact that there was a gap in time between the crucifixion of Jesus and the time that was set for the gospel to go forth to the Gentiles. Daniel set this gap of time at 3 and 1/2 years. I accept it.

Futurism is devastated right here in the prophecies of Daniel. Chapter 9 is an entirely separate event from Chapters 11 and 12. All of Futurism falls apart without the ability to link these two separate events and combine them into one. Futurists have been so desperate to accomplish this that they have actually added these three words out of thin air, "OF THE TEMPLE" to Daniel 9:27 in the NIV version. That is correct! The book of Daniel says that Daniel had an excellent spirit, yet the Hebrew word for "TEMPLE" occurs nowhere in verses 24 through 27. The NIV translators just plugged them in here, insinuating that Daniel had been vague and imprecise and had omitted them in an oversight. Daniel was excellent! He was not vague or imprecise. No other major bible translation includes the word "TEMPLE".

We have seen two abominations in Daniel: one occurred when our Messiah was crucified. It caused a terrible desolation to later be unleashed upon Jerusalem. It did not involve the setting up of anything in the temple or the defiling of the temple in any way. Earlier, there had been such an abomination of desolation, set up in the temple, during the time of Antiochus Epiphanes. It is this abomination that Jesus refers to in Matthew 24:15-21 that was to be reenacted or fulfilled again in some later time. When would that time be?

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:)
16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains...
21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be."

Jesus said that the Abomination of Desolation would begin the Great Tribulation. Futurists erroneously claim that the Great Tribulation lasts for three and one-half years, as they wrongly cast Daniel 9:24-27 into the future. It was fulfilled by the work of Messiah. It Is Finished!

Matthew 24:29 tells us that, immediately after the Great Tribulation, the sun will be darkened, the moon will not give her light, the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken. This is apocalyptic language that is after the order of that which was signfied to John in Revelation 1:1. The Great Tribulation began in 606 A.D. when the Pope, an apostate christian, sat in the temple of God (the church) and proclaimed that he was God. This began the persecuting period of the great tribulation that lasted for 1,260 years, until 1866, when the last of the Kings of Europe had thrown off the Papal yoke. There are other periods of 1,260 years still running: one from 800 A.D. when Charlemagne granted headship over those ten kings of Revelation 13 to the Pope for the first time, unto 2060, when we wait to see what events will ensue. This event, performed by the Pope in 606 A.D., was the fulfillment of the Abomination of Desolation prophecy of Jesus as recorded for us in Matthew 24:15. Please also remember that much of Matthew 24, Luke 17, Luke 21 and Mark 13 refers to the events up to and including 70 A.D.

The Apostle Paul describes the Abomination of Desolation in II Thessalonians 2:3-4. This is fulfilled by the actions of the Pope in 606 A.D.
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."

Paul says here that the man of sin, the Antichrist, will sit "In the temple of God." Where did Jesus say that the Abomination of Desolation would take place in Matthew 24:15?--In the holy place which was in the temple. Paul went on to say that the Antichrist would sit in the temple of God claiming to be God. This is the event known as the Abomination of Desolation. It is placed by the Antichrist, not by Jesus Christ. It actually happened in 606 A.D.

What is important?
The Historicist vs. Futurist discussion is not a salvation issue, unless it leads one to believe in a pre-tribulation rapture that never happens and subsequently, that one whose false hope had just evaporated falls away from the faith. Otherwise, this should not be allowed to become divisive in the church. It is important, and it can effect salvation. We gain nothing by doing anything more than contending earnestly for these things.

The Papacy Is The Antichrist! #mi

Stephen L. Bening
 

Date: 04 Aug 2019 03:59:35 +0000


TODAY'S WORD
I was thinking about...actually convicted about it that my website had no clear statement in it to the effect that "The Papacy Is THE ANTICHRIST!" I believe it is true. My mission here is to make a brief defense of that proposition.

I previously wrote an article entitled Single Antichrist. You can look at that one if you want to dig deeper into all of the antichrists that the epistle of 1 John chapter 2 alludes to. Let us be settled as to one fact that been established since John Huss first spoke it in 1416 and Martin Luther first wrote it in 1520: One of those 1 John antichrists is THE ANTICHRIST. The meaning of this is that this ANTICHRIST is also the man of lawlessness, the son of perdition of 2 Thessalonians 2. He is that one 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." He has been sitting in the temple of God since 606 A.D., proclaiming his infalibility and his godhood on the Earth as every Pope has done since that date.

Defenders of these Popes claim to have preached that the Heavenly Father is God and that Jesus is the Christ. In saying this, they claim to fall under the exemptions provided in 1 John Chapter 2. They claim that with their mouths, they have not denied that Jesus Christ came in the flesh. They ignore this truth that is eternally fatal to them:

Titus 1:16
"They profess that they know God, but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate". This Papacy denies God the Father and God the Son by preaching another gospel of faith and deeds: It is a false, lying salvation for those who keep their list of sacraments alone and it reduces the position of the only redeemer to that of co-redeemer at the side of His mother Mary. Yes, they deny God with their words, their doctrines and their deeds. They deny that Jesus is the Christ by introducing other redeemers and other requirements for salvation, along with other mediators between God and man. Jesus Christ is the only mediator between God and man! The Roman Catholic Christ is not our Christ.

This ONE ANTICHRIST is the same beast portrayed in Revelation 13 and Revelation 17 that will display multiple anniversaries of the duration of its power over periods of 1,260 years. These may be seen to have occurred according to the Julian time measure and by prophetic years that are comprised of 360 days. Some of these periods have come and gone, giving clear proof as to the validity of this method of interpretation and understanding. Some of these periods, along with the pouring of the Vials of Revelation 16, have been pouring upon the beast and will continue to pour into the indefinite future. Clearly, One Thousand, Two Hundred and Sixty years of murder, torture and then of the drinking of the blood of the saints could not have been accomplished by ONE MAN, but it has been the product of an unbroken succession of Popes since 606 A.D.

For proof of these allegations, go to the links provided to the Revelation Puzzle Pieces series at the end of this article.

Knowing that these facts have been established for more than five hundred years and that they have been sealed by the blood of more than FIFTY MILLION saints of God, we boldly state that we not are to look for any other man to be THE ANTICHRIST. Should a temple be built in Jerusalem and should animal sacrifice be reinstated, it will not be a TEMPLE OF GOD, as 2 Thessalonians 2 requires. Should a sexy, charismatic politician or movie actor arise, it will not matter for in order to be THE ANTICHRIST, you must have begun as one of us: you must be an apostate from the true faith! Truly, the Papacy is apostate to the core. It will matter not who might stand in it proclaiming his Godhood or not: he will not be THE ANTICHRIST! None other than a succession of Popes can be THE ANTICHRIST, the son of perdition, the man of sin and the beast that rises up from the sea as we find them in scripture.

All others will be pretenders. All those who oppose this teaching are liars and are sent forth from the father of lies: the devil.

My advice to you is this: Are you coasting in your faith? Are you biding your time, neglecting the reading of your bible; neglecting prayer; busy with worldly activities and lazy in your spiritual duties...waiting until you see the commencement of construction of this mythical temple in Jerusalem? Are you waiting to see your rock star, left behind antichrist before you get going in the building up of your most holy faith? Are you refusing to study the book of Revelation because you think that none of it will effect you because you will fly away in the rapture? ....................................You had better get going quickly. You have based your delays upon falsehoods and your hopes are false hopes. Your false hopes are about to suddenly evaporate. Repent of your lazy wickedness and come to the feet of Jesus.

The Apocalyptic Key #mi

Stephen L. Bening
 

Date: 01 Aug 2019 01:42:34 +0000


Two hundred and nine years ago, in the year of our Lord 1809, a very confident and extraordinary book was published.  It was called the "Apocalyptic Key".  The book itself was predominantly a reprint of the 1701 edition of Robert Fleming's only prophetic work:  "The Rise And Fall Of The Papacy"
<br><br>

I spent the evening last night reading the first book, published in 1701.  There is a sadness present that crops up several times in that 1701 edition.  He mentions several times that he is under pressure to present his work in a minimum number of pages.  Obviously, his benefactor had placed some pretty strict limits on how many pages he could take to present this work.  I also got the feeling that he knew that this was his only chance to get these prophetic ideas out in print, so he was really trying to make the best of it and was feeling hindered at the same time.  The ideas and concepts are not so easy.  He had not very many words to plainly explain a great many things.
<br><br>

So today, I was taking a look at the 1809 reprint, which was reprinted again in 1848 with much celebration.  Obviously, Dr. Fleming was not alive in 1809 or  in 1848 to oversee the reprintings of his work.  The reprint includes excerpts from the works of many of the important writers of Fleming's day.  Fleming's sadness is still there, surrounded by all this celebration.  What was the big deal?  Why the reprint?
<br><br>

Seventeen biblical prophecy writers had speculated that the beginning of the fall of the Papacy was at hand before it occurred.  Dr. Fleming was one of the seventeen.  They had all done so, in print, prior to the outbreak of the French Revolution in 1794.  Their names can be found at <a href="https://historicist.info/articles/predictions-of-the-french-revolution/">Predictions of the French Revolution by Lee Roy Froom</a>
<br><br>

Dr. Fleming's single solitary prophetic work, printed in 1701, was the only one to take an educated guess at the starting date of the French Revolution:  1794.  He hit the bullseye.  He took another educated guess at the date of the fall of the monarchy in France and the further blow this would deal to the Papacy:  1848  The only problem was the almost nobody knew about it 1701. 
<br><br>

Dr. Fleming was a pastor in Scotland at that time and then became a lecturer in London, but his areas of concern while he was in London appear to have primarily been political.  He was also a frequent lecturer on the liberal side of the Calvinistic controversy.  He did have the ear of William III, the King of Scotland and he consulted with him on ecclesiastical matters.  All in all, I conclude that he was spending his time primarily in areas other than those covered in the Apocalyptic Key.  His fame at 1794 and at 1848 relates almost totally to the Apocalyptic Key, but this work appears to have languished without much attention from its' original publication in 1701 until his death in 1716.
<br><br>

I can really identify with Robert Fleming.  I had an astounding prophecy in my hands on July 13, 1992.  I lived in South Florida and God had told me that "I will use the name of Andrew to mark judgement this generation".  I was also told to "watch August 24, 1992".  I was looking for a great earthquake along the San Andreas fault until August 17, 1992, when tropical storm Andrew formed off the Azores.  I warned my church in writing.  Nobody paid much attention until the hurricane was bearing down on us and Sunday church service had to be cancelled.
<br><br>

I was told by the pastor at that time that they would have me in to the office to have a look over the rest of the prophetic I had received AFTER the hurricane passed.  It passed and they forgot all about it.  So yes, I have a pretty good idea how Robert Fleming might have felt if he could have lived to see 1794 and even further to 1848.  Surely, he might have thought, these pastors and theologians will listen to me now.  God has proven me right.  But alas, in not too many years after 1848, all was forgotten.
<br><br>

Today, almost nobody knows his name and nobody knows his story.  More importantly, nobody knows the Apocalyptic Key he discovered:  the key to unlocking the correct understanding of the Book of Revelation.  Incredibly, everything he learned has been forgotten by almost everyone.  Those prophetic things that people are looking for now will never occur.  Those prophetic things that they believe they will never be here to see are those things that will come upon them.  Very soon now, there will be nothing but the sudden evaporation of false hopes in the churches and meeting houses, wherever you find them, on God's green earth.  Dr. Fleming would surely sigh and wonder how such a thing could have possibly come to pass.  After all, he wrote his book and the predictions came to pass.  Surely, everyone would know about it and no one would be caught like a thief in the night by it.
<br><br>

You can still download both of Fleming's prophetic books:  the original and the 1809 reprint.  They are a bit difficult to read for the twenty first century twitter user who probably could slog through a page or two before putting it down...too boring...too difficult as the current day reader probably thinks that a Goth is a punk rocker.  But alas, all is not lost..........................you can still get your apocalyptic key to unlock the secrets of the Book of Revelation.

What Is About To Happen #mi

Date: 12 Jul 2019 13:28:19 +0000



Updated 7/12/2019

Know this:  you do not have to participate in these terrible judgements.  These judgements are coming upon a world and an apostate church as a thief in the night, but you can walk in the light, not in the darkness.  Those who walk in the light will walk into ever more incredible presence and increasing glory of God as these judgements increase and spread.  Jesus is coming FOR His church, but before He does, He is coming IN His church to once again fulfill Malachi 3, where it is written that He will "come suddenly to His temple".  Just before He comes to form this Messiah filled church where He will rule with an iron rod, according to Revelation 12:5, He has told me that His prophets, of which I am one, will wield the iron rod.  This iron rod speaks of the power and authority in Christ that was carried into the wilderness for such a long period of time according to Revelation 12.  This power and authority is returning and I am waiting expectantly to see it:  I have been assured that I will wield it in my lifetime.  Jesus came out of a despised place:  Nazareth, where it was said "can anything good come out of Nazareth".  To such despised Nazareth places He will return IN His church, for Jesus will certainly return His iron rod authority to similar places and churches on the Earth where His people are desperately seeking Him in the midst of their poverty and destitution.  In that day, greater works will He do IN His church than He did when He walked the Earth almost 2000 years ago.  Look up, for your redeemer is drawing nigh.

TODAY'S WORD
SUMMARY: WHAT HAS BEEN UPDATED?

There has been a lot of revamping done through this article since the last update in 2016. Obviously, the whole tsunami house revelation has become an even greater mystery as it was completed, but no "topping out" party was ever held. Perhaps, we will be called upon to paint it again in the next few years as often happens with our painting company and the event as it was seen in the painter's dream will transpire. God alone knows. He holds all of the wheels of time in His hands. Only now are we beginning to see the Statue Of Liberty Vision come into clear focus as it was seen by A.A. Allen in 1954 with the Statue shown as standing, in a seemingly comical and nonsensical place, in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico. Furthermore, he saw it as if he was viewing it from a vantage point high over Venezuela, looking North. So, it can take a long time for prophecy to take shape to the place where it will make any sense to us as we try to figure it out. There was no Southern border crisis in 1954. Prophesy is hard business. Everyone wants to know when the events will occur and that is most often the hardest piece of information to reckon out. God has said He will lay it out prophetically as if you are looking through a blurry glass. He has said He will only lay it out in PART, not in full. We have to deal with a merciful Jesus and with interceding saints. Holding this knowledge close to our hearts, we pray for endurance so that we will not lose heart while we are waiting for the events to occur that will mark the culmination of this age.

Our last update in 2016 came before the first of two total Solar Eclipses that are set to cross the United States in 2017 and 2024: their paths forming a giant X, the center of which passes through my birthplace, Carbondale, Illinois. This appears to set off this seven year period as a time period within which God will deal with America.

The newest development we are watching and dealing with is and has been of concern since I saw an open vision in 1993 that showed a Persian Gulf attack on one of our aircraft carriers. I was told that this event would be like a first falling domino and would trigger many other serious events. Right now, the USS Abraham Lincoln, a carrier that has been named in a prophetic vision by another, has been deployed and is stationed just outside the Persian Gulf, along with support vessels. A few guided missile destroyers have been deployed inside the Persian Gulf. Of additional concern to me is that the USS Arlington (24) has been tasked for involvement in any proceedings. The rhetoric has been heated. This event could flare with no additional warning here in the 21st week of the year: the week when the church was born almost 2000 years ago.

UPDATED ARTICLE

We prophets have been waiting on a number of judgements that God has been showing us for more than twenty or in some cases thirty years or ore. We call some of these "single staff judgements" and others "double judgements". All of the judgements that have happened so far have been "single staff" or "second tier". We are getting ready to enter into the realm and time of the double judgements and the tier one judgements. These will be extremely severe. You can only have a Revelation 18 double judgement when a prophet has previously declared that a judgement would fall by a certain time, and then that time of judgement has been delayed due to repentance or intercession. This is a principle that has existed since the time of Elijah and Elisha and is described in detail in the book of Second Kings. This has now been the case. We have seen the delays that resulted due to much intercession that has been made by interceding saints and now, we will all witness the doubling.

The double judgements were all called in through prophetic decrees by the end of October, 2009, except for the unfinished business with Boston, MA, which was finished by us in April, 2012. We began to call in these double judgements in July, 2008. We did not know it at the time, but this calling in of judgements by men had been prophesied fifty four years earlier by prophet A.A. AllenThe Prophetic Ministry Of Calling In The Judgements

We fully expected many of the double judgements to commence in October, 2010, but they have been delayed as God has seen fit to do and I believe most particularly due to the intercession of the young people movements in this nation (IHOP and Jesus Culture). Now, as we head toward the middle of 2019, we are seeing many signs that the judgements are ready to escalate with great fury. America has once again gathered a big portion of her Navy to the Persian and Arabian Gulf. They appear ready to start any day now, but previous experience leads me to caution that we may have a bit of time to wait just yet. We even expect to see the double judgements now. We have said it over and over again that the hardest thing to discern in prophecy is the time or manner of time when all these things will be fulfilled. That verbiage is found in Peter's epistle and it is still true of prophecy today.

These double judgements, when you see them, will be directly a consequence of delays obtained by previous intercession where righteousness has not resulted during the time period for which the delay was granted. This principle, as we said previously, is biblical and is found in 2 Kings in the interplay between King Ahab and the prophet Elisha. The Lord also revealed to me that the double judgements will be like defibrillator paddles, applied to the church where the church is akin to a patient, lying in the emergency room with its' heart stopped. The defibrillator delivers a double shock to the heart from two different directions. So will it be with the double judgements. They will shock the hell out of the church. These same double judgements will bring Mystery Babylon, the mother of harlots, otherwise known as "the church", to its' end. From this terrible trouble will arise a remnant bride of Christ.

There has now been more than a seven year delay in the commencement of the double judgements that was obtained, by the praying saints, through intercession alone, as there has been absolutely no national repentance here in the United States nor in any of the other Western Democracies and Republics. In 2016, we have had the SIGN OF OMAR. A radical Islamic Terrorist by the name of OMAR has shot or killed more than one hundred people in Orlando, Florida. We wait now for the three sets of double assassinations that are foreshadowed by the events portrayed in 2 Kings 9 and 10. These are the only remaining signs before the onset of the double judgements.

What types of events are going to be happening and what will the signs be that they are near? The initials utilized are these and designate these prophetic ministers:

Stephen L. Bening (SLB), Bob Neumann (BN), Dumitru Duduman (DD), Henry Gruver (HG), Matthew Stephen (MS), David Wilkerson (DW),Virginia Boldea (VB) Joseph Cook (JC), Art Cormier (AC), Chuck Youngbrandt (CY), Stanley Frodsham (SF), Leonard Ravenhill (LR) and Randy McKee (RM).

Some of these men did not endure to the end of their lives with a clean walk of service unto the Lord. In those cases, I have included only those revelations for which I have witness from the Lord as to the source. Also, it is possible that I might have missed a valid prophecy by one of those named concerning an event where they have not been indicated.

Revival Unto Prayer And Repentance: Right now, God is stretching out His hand toward His people, not to cancel or delay the judgements but to strengthen His people and help them to endure the difficulties we will face. There is a tremendous opportunity available now for those who will fast, pray and live a holy life to dramatically increase the anointing upon your life; an anointing that will now abide on you for the dramatic release of great power of the Lord for the performing of great exploits. There is a wave of glory inbound that will immediately precede the onset of the double judgements. (SLB)

Concurrently with the outpouring described above, God has now Stopped The Rain. In doing so, God has now begun to make an even greater distinction, blessing those righteous who will separate themselves from wickedness and uncleanness: both within the church and without, and cutting off the rain of His Glory and His Presence from those who refuse to come out of their defilement. Spiritual drought will now fall upon the "thing" called church.



TIMING WATCH PERIODS FOR DOUBLE JUDGEMENTS
Scientists/Astronomers: August 2015 to December, 2024 (And they say the numbers are soft, possibly unto 2036) ----64 month watch period (specific to increased danger of an incoming comet swarm)

Stephen L. Bening #24 Anniversary Revelation: June 1, 2015 to September 17, 2016--------------------------------16 month watch period (watch period not specific to asteroids/comets but to all double judgements and miraculous blessings)(2019-what we received was the rise of President Donald J. Trump(SLB)





EVENTS WE HAVE BEEN SEEING AND EXPECT TO OCCUR OR WORSEN AT ANY MOMENT:
Events under way: Droughts, fires, tornadoes, hurricanes, storms, earthquakes, terror attacks, and the like have been happening and will continue to worsen. It is possible that America will burn by natural fires in fulfillment of Dumitru Duduman's prophecy that "America will burn". (SLB)(MS)(BN)(DD)(DW) There will be a later fulfillment of that prophecy that will have a nuclear marker to it. Terror attacks have now worsened in mid 2016 with the going forth of the sign of OMAR.

All this continues to occur while the church is ever more dominated by the prosperity theology and defiled with libertine doctrines (SF), among churches that are and will be ever more infiltrated and dominated by arrogant false prophets (LR), as was prophesied fifty years ago.

It was prophesied as early as 2005 that modern day men, prophets, sent by God as "watchers and the holy ones", would come forth making decrees and calling in the judgements in the last days and that they would see those things established by God. (RM)(SLB)(MS)

An open vision was seen by two prophets in 2005 as we ministered in a pastors meeting in Western Kenya. It was a proclamation of decree; a scroll opening down out of the ceiling where we were ministering. It read "Death Warrant For America". On the bottom of it were two signature lines for two prophets and our two signatures were on those two lines. We two prophets simultaneously saw the same, open waking vision and immediately confirmed, one to the other, than we had both seen the same thing. (SLB)(RM)

Sicknesses and early deaths of many prominent Christian ministers. It will be said that there is a death devil in the church. Meanwhile, it will not be the devil's work after all. This is under way as of this present time. (SLB)(MS)

Bank Closures: For up to six months, including a 50% confiscation by the government of all monetary accounts. (MS)(SLB)(DW)



DOUBLE JUDGEMENTS DURING THE FIRST SIXTY DAYS ON AN UNREPENTANT NATION AND HARLOT CHURCH:
(If you are wondering whether something is the start of the double judgements, then it is not a double judgement. When they begin to happen, you will know it, due to the frequency and severity of them)
Double Assassinations: Have been happening and will escalate here and around the world. (MS)(SLB) The sign of OMAR has now gone forth as a sign of the impending double judgements on June 12, 2016. (SLB) The only remaining indicator to prove that the double judgements have definitively commenced will be the three sets of double assassinations according to 2 Kings 9 and 10.(SLB) Among the three sets, there will be a political leader killed and also a religious leader killed, just as it was in 1968.(SLB, MS)

Attacks On Aircraft Carriers and Shipping by Arabs (descendants of Ishmael): Attacks on aircraft carriers and ships will be right up near the front of the events that are going to be transpiring in the near term. The Lord said this one would be the first falling domino. (SLB)(BN)

Economic Crash: This began in the fall of 2008. It is going to come in worse now with another wave of trouble. This crash will be an all time low on the stock market. Dollar crash is indicated to 50% of present value, perhaps even a confiscation of 50% of value. Gold will go to $2,000 and then crash. (SLB)(MS)

Rioting: Also began around the world in 2008. It will now come to America too and it will be horrific in the cities. (SLB)(DD)(DW)

Terrorism: will break forth on many fronts. (MS)(SLB)(DW)(DD)



DOUBLE JUDGEMENTS AFTER THE INITIAL SIXTY DAYS ON AN UNREPENTANT NATION AND HARLOT CHURCH:
(If you are wondering whether something is the start of the double judgements, then it is not a double judgement. When they begin to happen, you will know it, due to the frequency and severity of them)
Tsunamis: Coming to all US Coasts of the 100 foot or less variety, similar to Japan and Indonesia. Coming in to the Southeastern United States and the rest of the world as early as 60 days after total world economic collapse and rioting. (SLB)(BN)(MS)

Heartland earthquakes: There is going to be a major earthquake early on in "The 417 Land", South Central Missouri, that will be aimed by God at the harlot, money loving church. This event is right up front in the pantheon of judgements because of the Red Sticks. More than 200 years ago, Tecumseh (whose name means "panther across the sky") and Tenskatawah used them to prophecy the great New Madrid Quake of December 16, 1811. Now, God has had His prophets using them again. They are the last sign that God will give to warn of the need to gather together to the safe zones (prophet Matthew's Blue panther map). and assemble for the purpose of preservation of our lives and those of other remnant believers. Three bridges will be built over this inland sea.(SLB)(MS)(JC)(CY)

Electrical Power Interruptions: Due to solar flare or terrorism, but not due to EMP attack. We are in solar cycle #24 right now. These power interruptions will also take down cell phones and the internet. (SLB)

Portland, Oregon Tsunami: This tsunami will reach 70 feet over the regular level of the Columbia River and will flood almost all of downtown Portland. This is a near term event. (MS)(SLB)

Boston, MA Tsunami/Earthquake: This tsunami will reach downtown Boston and will inundate Cape Cod to Cape Ann. This is a near term event. (MS)

Washington DC event: Marked by the name of Andrew, this will include rioting and other events. It is a near term event. Many corpses will be the result. (SLB)

Atlanta, GA event: There will be an event that interrupts travel through this city. (SLB)

Terrorism: will break forth on many fronts in terrible severity, eventually interrupting the food supply and the supply of clean drinking water. (MS)(SLB)(DW)(DD)

San Andreas Fault: California earthquakes splitting the San Andreas fault resulting in an extremely serious quake are ready to happen at any moment. The sign of the nearness of these things is that the Russian Bear has awakened and has gone forth to regather her cubs after twenty years of hibernation in her den, which is happening right now. This is marked by the name of Andrew. (SLB)(MS)(HG)(DD)(Hundreds of others)

Double Assassinations: Have been happening and will escalate here and around the world. (MS)(SLB)

High Level Assassinations: (MS)(SLB)



EVENTS WE EXPECT TO OCCUR AFTER THE TWO INITIAL WAVES OF DOUBLE JUDGEMENTS
Russian Attack: The Russian Bear has awakened. Which will happen first: the California earthquake or the Russian Bear attack? Most likely, the bear attack will come and then the earthquake along the fault will manifest shortly thereafter. Up to six nations including China will likely tag along. (MS)(SLB)(AC)(HG)(DD)

Asteroids: hitting land and fireball effects sending blast waves. (SLB)(BN)(VB)

Terrorism: EXTREME will break forth on many fronts. (MS)(SLB)(DD)

Terror Against Churches: There will be a particularly terrible terror attack against a mega-church. (SLB)(MS)

Draconian Laws: Laws will be enacted that will make it illegal to hunt and fish, to be enforced by robotic drone patrols. (SLB)

Gold Worthless: Many who have "prepped" by buying gold will not be able to obtain anything for it. Either the price will collapse or buyers for it will not be found. (MS)(SLB)

Reenacted French Revolution: Coming in the United States. Intense persecution of Christians will commence including the confiscation of church properties and facilities. Yellow Vest demonstatios have been building in France. (SLB)

Six major US earthquakes: Serious quakes in a short time period, each greater than 8.0 (MS)

Limited Repentance: The great majority of America's pastors will blame the troubles we are experiencing on the failure of the American believers to tithe. (An False Assessment) There will be no national repentance at this stage even after 1 to 2 million people lay dead in America. A small remnant will, however, have returned to the Lord. (SLB)

Famine: Eat your bread with carefulness. (MS)

Awakening US Volcanoes: Including one to arise out of Lake Erie.(MS) Mount Rainier of Washington will awaken (SLB) as well as the Three Sisters Volcano of Oregon.(MS)

Nuclear Terrorism: Self explanatory, but one attack will hit Miami Beach, FL.(SLB), another will hit Los Angeles (SLB)

Giant Inland US Sea: To be formed from Columbia, MO to Louisville, KY, 250 to 400 miles wide. (SLB)(JC)

Nuclear Attack: mainly upon coastal cities. (SLB)(MS)(HG)(DD)(AC)

Occupation of the US: Again, it is self explanatory. (MS)(SLB)(HG)(DD)

Revival Unto Repentance: Sometime after 20 million lay dead in America, we will have the opportunity for national repentance. (SLB)



EVENTS THAT WE EXPECT TOWARD THE END OF EVENTS THAT WILL AFFECT THE UNITED STATES
Tsunamis: Great floods of the 500 to 1,000 foot variety, coming to all US coasts, due to asteroid/comet impact, but not due to Nubiru or some other unnamed close approach of a dark or dwarf star. (SLB)(BN)

Magnitude 13 Earthquake Puget Sound/Seattle: It is difficult to imagine what this will look like. (MS)

250 Million Dead: The failure to repent will result in the land vomiting out its' inhabitants. Hopefully, those who remain will make the best of their opportunity to return to the Lord and cancel this prophetic judgement. (MS)

Timing: I fully expect to see the start of most of these events during the 2008-2024 time line, but I will not be surprised if the worst events stretch even to 2031 (SLB)

Blessings,
Stephen L. Bening

One month and one day ago, the Lord spoke a word to me about my wife and I: "Patient endurance is required of you". Three days later, we went into an almost one month long period of intense spiritual trial, out of which we began to make our way yesterday. The fact that the word of personal admonition to me and my wife was quickly fulfilled does tend, in my own mind, to buttress the word of the Lord given to me on the very next day, March 21, 2019, that I did not write here until now: exactly one month later.

Psalm 1
Psa 1:1  Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.  Psa 1:2  But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.  Psa 1:3  And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.  Psa 1:4  The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.  Psa 1:5  Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.  Psa 1:6  For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish. 

"The rain has stopped! The lamps are being put out! There is a scrambling around in the dark, looking for oil to light the lamps. The ungodly and the members of the harlot will be in spiritual drought. The righteous' season of fruitfulness will continue to bring forth fruit worthy of God's approval."

It was at this time that the Holy Spirit brought to my remembrance a place I visited near Kittui, Kenya, Africa when this place was in an extremely acute drought. The only thing that was green was a row of tall trees that lined the Eastern shore of the totally dried up river bed. It was then that the Holy Spirit quickened this verse:

Jeremiah 17:7-8
Jer 17:7  Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is.  Jer 17:8  For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit. 

"Even though the righteous may not be aware of the the spiritual drought, yet their season will be green and yielding fruit acceptable to God. And they shall continue to yield fruit worthy of God.

Now, one month after I received this word from the Lord, I am thinking about the preceding verses in Jeremiah 17:

Jer 17:5  Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD.  Jer 17:6  For he shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when good cometh; but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land and not inhabited. 

There have been many, many church going souls who have treated me with great disdain during the last thirty years as I have related to them the vision and the many words that the Lord has given to me regarding the defiled condition of the thing that is called "church". These people uniformly place their trust in man: in the congregation of men, for their continued fruitfulness. They think it is impossible that they could ever leave the "church" and continue to bear fruit for God. Over and over again, they have quoted the familiar scripture to me from Hebrews: "forsake not the assembling together with the brethren" without giving any consideration to another scripture of equal importance from the Revelation that they forget, but that deserves their equal attention: "Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.".

What season is it?

Ecc 3:1  To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: 
Ecc 3:2  A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; 
Ecc 3:3  A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; 
Ecc 3:4  A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; 
Ecc 3:5  A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; 
Ecc 3:6  A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; 
Ecc 3:7  A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; 
Ecc 3:8  A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace. 


What season is it anyway? Does anybody know what time it is? Where is the man today who is as the son's of Issachar, who understands the times. There's a train coming, but will it bring comfort or pain? That train will bring the ONE whom you seek. He will come suddenly to His temple, but who can abide His appearing. And you still refuse to see, you still refuse to see... and you still refuse to see.

The Rain Has Stopped-The Spiritual Drought Is Coming #mi
