So the end time prognosticators are at it again. I remember as far back as 1987 that there was a guy Named Edgar C. Whisenantwho wrote a book on the subject,“88 Reasons Why Jesus is Coming in 1988”. Needless to say, Yeshua didn’t come that year, so he wrote a sequel,“89 Reasons Why Jesus is Coming in 1988”. I don’t think the second book sold as well. The one thing I do know is that end-time prophecy is a good business. False prophets and cults have been predicting the Lord’s coming since the day He left, and as much as I hate wasting my time on their dribble, for the sake of those good folks who read my rantings, I probably should say something.
While I do believe that we are in some very critical days, I am not of the belief that we are able to discern the signs of the time using their ridiculous formulas. I really believe that the Scriptures make it clear what we should look for in relation to the end times. There are enough Biblical signs that we should be heeding. We don’t need to be making up erroneous signs from every natural phenomenon. The go-to verse that most of these recent false prophets reference is found in Genesis.
Gen 1:14 Then God said, "Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years;
The only problem is that they never quote the rest of the verse.
Gen 1:15 and let them be for lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth"; and it was so.
Gen 1:16 God made the two great lights, the greater light to govern the day, and the lesser light to govern the night; He made the stars also.
Gen 1:17 God placed them in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth,
Gen 1:18 and to govern the day and the night, and to separate the light from the darkness; and God saw that it was good.
Gen 1:19 There was evening and there was morning, a fourth day.
These end-time prophet wannabes say that this passage declares that these celestial lights were given as a sign for the end times. While it is true that there are verses that speak of signs in the heavens during the end times, those happen at the end of the tribulation period, as I will point out later. As for this passage, it is in the creation narrative that they are placed, not the end times. It is simply stating that the Lord gave the sun, moon and stars as signs to mark the day, night, seasons, days and years. Hey, and guess what? That’s what they do! Quite well, I might add.
This is what the Word says concerning the approach of the end times.
Signs of the End of the Age
Mat 24:3 As He was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, "Tell us, when will these things happen, and what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?"
Mat 24:4 And Jesus answered and said to them, "See to it that no one misleads you.
Mat 24:5 "For many will come in My name, saying, 'I am the Christ,' and will mislead many.
Mat 24:6 "You will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end.
Mat 24:7 "For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes.
Mat 24:8 "But all these things are merely the beginning of birth pangs.
So based on this passage we are not there yet. I would go so far as to say that we are in the birth pangs. It will get much worse.
Mat 24:9 "Then they will deliver you to tribulation, and will kill you, and you will be hated by all nations because of My name.
Mat 24:10 "At that time many will fall away and will betray one another and hate one another.
Mat 24:11 "Many false prophets will arise and will mislead many.
Mat 24:12 "Because lawlessness is increased, most people's love will grow cold.
Mat 24:13 "But the one who endures to the end, he will be saved.
Mat 24:14 "This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come.
After the birth pangs comes tribulation. Many will fall away because of that tribulation. Guess what?The believers are still here during this tribulation period.
The Abomination of Desolation
Mat 24:15 "Therefore when you see the ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION which was spoken of through Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand),
Mat 24:16 then those who are in Judea must flee to the mountains.
Mat 24:17 "Whoever is on the housetop must not go down to get the things out that are in his house.
Mat 24:18 "Whoever is in the field must not turn back to get his cloak.
Mat 24:19 "But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days!
Mat 24:20 "But pray that your flight will not be in the winter, or on a Sabbath.
Mat 24:21 "For then there will be a great tribulation, such as has not occurred since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever will.
Mat 24:22 "Unless those days had been cut short, no life would have been saved; but for the sake of the elect those days will be cut short.
Mat 24:23 "Then if anyone says to you, 'Behold, here is the Christ,' or 'There He is,' do not believe him.
Mat 24:24 "For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect.
Mat 24:25 "Behold, I have told you in advance.
Mat 24:26 "So if they say to you, 'Behold, He is in the wilderness,' do not go out, or, 'Behold, He is in the inner rooms,' do not believe them.
Mat 24:27 "For just as the lightning comes from the east and flashes even to the west, so will the coming of the Son of Man be.
Mat 24:28 "Wherever the corpse is, there the vultures will gather.
The abomination of desolation that Matthew is speaking about was prophesied in Daniel 7 and 9.
Dan 7:23 "Thus he said: 'The fourth beast will be a fourth kingdom on the earth, which will be different from all the other kingdoms and will devour the whole earth and tread it down and crush it.
Dan 7:24 'As for the ten horns, out of this kingdom ten kings will arise; and another will arise after them, and he will be different from the previous ones and will subdue three kings.
Dan 7:25 'He will speak out against the Most High and wear down the saints of the Highest One, and he will intend to make alterations in times and in law; and they will be given into his hand for a time, times, and half a time.
Dan 7:26 'But the court will sit for judgment, and his dominion will be taken away, annihilated and destroyed forever.
Dan 7:27 'Then the sovereignty, the dominion and the greatness of all the kingdoms under the whole heaven will be given to the people of the saints of the Highest One; His kingdom will be an everlasting kingdom, and all the dominions will serve and obey Him.'
Dan 7:28 "At this point the revelation ended. As for me, Daniel, my thoughts were greatly alarming me and my face grew pale, but I kept the matter to myself."
For a time, times and half a time–3-and-a-half years–the saints will be given into his hand. The Hebrew word used here is from the root word Moed, which means Season, and is usually used in the context of a period of time that equals one year. It is used like that in the 70 weeks of Daniel. He will wear down the saints. Who are these saints? According to many, the saints will be raptured out of this world before the Tribulation.
The Seventy Weeks
Dan 9:24 "Seventy weeks have been decreed for your people and your holy city, to finish the transgression, to make an end of sin, to make atonement for iniquity, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy and to anoint the most holy place.
Dan 9:25 "So you are to know and discern that from the issuing of a decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until Messiah the Prince there will be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks; it will be built again, with plaza and moat, even in times of distress.
Dan 9:26 "Then after the sixty-two weeks the Messiah will be cut off and have nothing, and the people of the prince who is to come will destroy the city and the sanctuary. And its end will come with a flood; even to the end there will be war; desolations are determined.
Dan 9:27 "And he will make a firm covenant with the many for one week, but in the middle of the week he will put a stop to sacrifice and grain offering; and on the wing of abominations will come one who makes desolate, even until a complete destruction, one that is decreed, is poured out on the one who makes desolate."
This same one who wears down the saints is the one who commits the abomination of desolation.
The Coming of the Son of Man
Mat 24:29 "But immediately after the tribulation of those days THE SUN WILL BE DARKENED, AND THE MOON WILL NOT GIVE ITS LIGHT, AND THE STARS WILL FALL from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.
Mat 24:30 "And then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the SON OF MAN COMING ON THE CLOUDS OF THE SKY with power and great glory.
Mat 24:31 "And He will send forth His angels with A GREAT TRUMPET and THEY WILL GATHER TOGETHER His elect from the four winds, from one end of the sky to the other.
Then we come to the place where Yeshua comes again, when we see the signs in the heavens. When does it happen, immediately after the tribulation?It is not until the end of the tribulation that we see the Son of Man coming in the clouds. It is after the tribulation that Yeshua sends forth His angel with the great trumpet.
So let’s sum it up.
- Many false prophets shall come in His name claiming to be the Messiah.
- Many shall be misled.
- There will be wars and rumors of wars.
- There will be famines and earthquakes.
- These are not the end, just the birth pangs.
- There will be tribulation and many will die.
- Many will fall away.
- More false prophets will come and lead many away.
- Lawlessness is increased; only the one who endures to the end will be saved.
- The Gospel is preached throughout the entire world,then the end comes.
- Matthew backtracks to give us more details.
- We are instructed to look for the abomination of desolation.
- Instructions are given to the believers during this time.
- Then comes the greatest tribulation that has ever been.
- Those days are cut short for the sake of the elect.
- He again reminds us of the false messiahs and prophets to come.
- Then, after the Tribulation, we see the sign of the sun, moon and stars.
- Now comes the Son of Man in the clouds.
- The great trumpet is blasted and the saints are raised.
Now we deal with the issue of what some of the end-time prophets are saying we should be looking at. I took this from an article on Wikipedia. I don’t often use this website, but I found it to be fair in defining this issue.
“The Revelation 12 Sign is an apocalyptic belief heralding that the time of Jacob's Trouble—also known as the Tribulation Period—may begin on September 23, 2017. This theory, which has been promoted by a number of people and news organizations, proposes that a literal fulfillment of the prophecy made in the Book of Revelation 12:1-2 will occur on this date over Jerusalem.
This passage of scripture in the New Testament metaphorically describes ‘a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head. She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth.’ (NIV). Many people worldwide believe that an astronomical alignment involving the constellations Virgo and Leo, the sun, moon, and planets Mercury, Mars, Venus, and Jupiter occurring in September 2017 will fulfill this prophecy word-for-word.”
The Woman and the Dragon
Rev 12:1 A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars;
Rev 12:2 and she was with child; and she *cried out, being in labor and in pain to give birth.
Rev 12:3 Then another sign appeared in heaven: and behold, a great red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and on his heads were seven diadems.
Rev 12:4 And his tail *swept away a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was about to give birth, so that when she gave birth he might devour her child.
Rev 12:5 And she gave birth to a son, a male child, who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron; and her child was caught up to God and to His throne.
Rev 12:6 Then the woman fled into the wilderness where she *had a place prepared by God, so that there she would be nourished for one thousand two hundred and sixty days.
Boy, I wish I had the gift of interpreting the end-time prophecies like they do. I understand that this event most likely alludes to Yeshua and his incarnation. As for the remainder it, it is rather foolish of them to assume that the rest of this event is fulfilled in the “astronomical alignment involving the constellations”. I simply have to say the end time significance of this prophecy is rather ambiguous, to say the least.
There are also a number of other holes in their interpretation that cannot be filled, no matter what theological putty they use as filler.
As I said above, most of their predictions are based on a pre-tribulation rapture theory. In just a very short time, using only a few Scriptures in context, that theory can be blown out of the water, and there are many more passages. I have addressed that issue in other articles and I would be happy to send those to anyone who might be interested.
I Thess 4:13-18 are the quintessential verses showing the pre-trib rapture.
The Coming of the Lord
1Th 4:13 But we do not want you to be uninformed, brethren, about those who are asleep, so that you will not grieve as do the rest who have no hope.
1Th 4:14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who have fallen asleep in Jesus.
1Th 4:15 For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep.
1Th 4:16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.
1Th 4:17 Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord.
1Th 4:18 Therefore comfort one another with these words.
Very simply in this verse it says the dead in Messiah will raise first – hence the first resurrection. The pre-tribbers say that this proves that the saints will be translated from the earth before the tribulation.
But Rev 20:1-6 says:
Rev 20:1 Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, holding the key of the abyss and a great chain in his hand.
Rev 20:2 And he laid hold of the dragon, the serpent of old, who is the devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years;
Rev 20:3 and he threw him into the abyss, and shut it and sealed it over him, so that he would not deceive the nations any longer, until the thousand years were completed; after these things he must be released for a short time.
Rev 20:4 Then I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was given to them. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony of Jesus and because of the word of God, and those who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received the mark on their forehead and on their hand; and they came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.
Rev 20:5 The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were completed. This is the first resurrection.
Rev 20:6 Blessed and holy is the one who has a part in the first resurrection; over these the second death has no power, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with Him for a thousand years.
Those who are raised in this first resurrection were beheaded because they would not worship the beast or his image. They would not receive his mark. I could be wrong, but it sounds like they went through the tribulation. It also says they were raised first. How could those first resurrection folks in 1 Thess 4 be raised in a pre-trib rapture, while the saints in Revelation are also raised first, yetthey go through the Tribulation?
Here the dilemma is solved; anyone who declares a sign from the Lord about His coming that is based on a pre-trib rapture theory is a false prophet, no ifs, ands or buts about it.
So in conclusion to this short little rebuttal about the September 23rd alignment of the stars and those who declare it as a sign of the coming of the Lord, i.e., the rapture, be careful! For you are standing in a dangerous place. There are more than enough Biblical prophecies that warn us about what to look for when He comes. We don’t need to make up any others.
Deu 18:20 'But the prophet who speaks a word presumptuously in My name which I have not commanded him to speak, or which he speaks in the name of other gods, that prophet shall die.'
Deu 18:21 "You may say in your heart, 'How will we know the word which the LORD has not spoken?'
Deu 18:22 "When a prophet speaks in the name of the LORD, if the thing does not come about or come true, that is the thing which the LORD has not spoken. The prophet has spoken it presumptuously; you shall not be afraid of him.
Godlessness in the Last Days
2Ti 3:1 But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come.
2Ti 3:2 For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy,
2Ti 3:3 unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good,
2Ti 3:4 treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God,
2Ti 3:5 holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; Avoid such men as these.
Some Will Depart from the Faith
1Ti 4:1 But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons,
1Ti 4:2 by means of the hypocrisy of liars seared in their own conscience as with a branding iron,
We are not lacking Biblical information concerning His coming again. Let’s not get caught up in the feeding frenzy of end-time false prophecies.
As an addendum to my little article I want to post a short time line of some of the false prophets that have presented themselves to their non-discerning adherents. In my lifetime alone there has been approx 78 major false end time prophecy events. I am sure there are more events that only affected smaller groups of people.

End Time Prophecies
A viral video from the YouTube channel "End Time Prophecies" claimed that the world would end with the Earth undergoing a "polar flip", which would apparently cause the Earth's atmosphere to be pulled to the ground as the surface reels like a vacuum, causing a "rolling cloud" to cover the planet. They also claimed that a worldwide "megaquake" would ensue.
2017 May 13
Villegas claimed that the world would descend into nuclear war on May 13, 2017, due to increased tensions on the Korean Peninsula. He also said this date coincided with the hundred-year anniversary of the visitation of Our Lady of Fátima.
So as you can see we are not lacking examples of false prophets in our lifetime. No need to give room for anymore. Be discerning and look only to the signs found in the Scriptures.
