The Upside Down World of Fools


According to Obama, "Because the world has never been less violent, healthier, better educated, more tolerant, with more opportunity for more people, and more connected than it is today," (source)

Proverbs 29:2 "When the righteous increase, the people rejoice, but when the wicked rule, the people groan."  Proverbs 29:12 - If a ruler listens to falsehood, all his officials will be wicked.

We live in a world dominated by loud fools who say "that what is right is wrong and what is wrong is right; that black is white and white is black; bitter is sweet and sweet is bitter."  Isaiah 5:20

In a twisted way, they can turn everything you say against you.  If you rebuke them for their foolishness, they have no understanding.  Their pride and arrogance is impenetrable.  The center of their world is their own intelligence.


The Arrogant Fool
Proverbs 18:6-7 Fools’ words get them into constant quarrels; they are asking for a beating. The mouths of fools are their ruin; they trap themselves with their lips.

I think the above proverb explains why right minded people are becoming increasingly agitated.  Normally peaceful people are on the verge of exploding; we see it everywhere.  Law abiding people are furious over police murders and over the agitators that commit the crimes.  The overwhelming evidence of Hillary Clinton's crimes is baffling, yet her supporters are like Stepford Americans, no longer able to discern right from wrong.  Islam is a violent dangerous religion, yet it is the Evangelical Christian that is demonized.

The only arbiter of truth in this time is the Holy Spirit.  We must constantly filter the externals through the sieve of the Holy Scriptures and through the discernment of the Holy Spirit, otherwise we will be deceived.  We will be in danger of engaging with fools.

For there is already at work the mystery of lawlessness (2 Thessalonians 2:7), the ultimate deception that is sent from the Lord for those who are perishing.  (2 Thessalonians 2:10-11).  This will not get better, indeed as we quickly rush toward the Rapture, it will get worse.  Friends, cover yourself in prayer, ask the Holy Spirit for discernment, do not waste your energy on the deceived fools but instead through your testimony be ready to give an answer for the hope that lives within you.

No One Knows the Hour or the Day?

Abigail and Dolley readers my husband sent me the below article from Hebraic Roots of Christianity Global Network.  The site is full of beautiful nuggets and I look forward in the coming days and weeks of thorough study.  In the mean time, the article below is the most comprehensive study I've seen on the Rosh Hashanah Rapture, so I figured my loyal readers would appreciate it.  So let's delve in!

At the Time of the End, the wise shall understand. Dan 12:10
The Wise Still Seek Him
Understanding the expression "No man knows the day or hour" is not possible by simply taking the English translation literally, because in the book of Daniel and the Book of Revelation, we are given EXACT descriptions of timing, relative to KEY events - such as the shutting down of the altar sacrifices in Jerusalem at the MID-POINT of the 70th week. Dan 9:27.

Jesus was asked, "When shall these things be?" Matt 24:3

His answer ties us in to a very specific event (The Abomination of Desolation) which can be measured on our calendars: "When you therefore shall see the Abomination Of Desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoever reads, let him understand:)..." Matt 24:15.

It is now clear that "no man knows the day or hour" does NOT mean "no man knows the day or hour" as we read it from a modern-day English perspective.

From his book "Signs In the Heavens" by Avi Ben Mordechai, he devotes a chapter to explaining what "no man knows the day or hour" truly means from a rabbinical Hebraic perspective. It is a figure of speech.

The following chapter contains edited excerpts from Avi Ben Mordechai's commentaries and builds on them aiming to explain that the Holy Bible does in fact reveal the "day and hour" or "exact timing" of our Lord's Return.

No One Knows the Day or the Hour?

Christians over the centuries have separated themselves from their Hebraic roots causing the misunderstanding of key Jewish biblical idioms. An idiom is also a figure of speech. When Y'shua (Jesus) uttered His famous words concerning the Messianic Era in Matthew 24:26, "No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in Heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father", He used a common Jewish figure of speech referring to a specific Jewish Festival. In essence He was saying, "I am coming for My Bride on such and such a day! Be watching!" What day could the Jewish idiom be referring to? Keep reading!

Peter Reaches Out From the Grave in a 1948 Year Old Prophecy


A Prophecy for Today

Peter the Apostle
I was headed to work this week and "randomly" queued up 2 Peter 2 in my audio bible.  It reached through the speakers and stunned me with it's prophetic message for today; as if Simon Peter was giving a news cast.   It struck me forcefully that these were the words written by the fiery apostle, the eye witness speaking to us from the grave.  Listen:


This 1948 year old prophecy predicts:

  • False teachers bringing heresy and destruction for their own financial gain.
  • Lost and willful people following in their own desires.
  • The righteous remnant to be tormented in their soul for the unrighteous and willful acts of those around them.
  • Predicts that the sexually perverted with have no shame and flaunt their behavior.
  • They will scoff at the supernatural.
  • Men will become like animals: creatures of instinct to be slaughtered like cattle.
  • People will look upon each other with unquenchable lust.
  • They brag about themselves.
  • The revile the supernatural realm 
  • They mock things they do not understand
  • They entice the weak who  are trying to escape back into sin.
That about sums up where we are right now!  Most of the chapter is straight forward but right in the middle, 2 Peter 2:10-12, requires some in depth study.  Let's look closely:

Bill Johnson and John Crowder - Grave Sucking False Teachers

10 He is especially hard on those who follow their own twisted sexual desire, and who despise authority. These people are proud and arrogant, daring even to scoff at supernatural beings without so much as trembling.

11 But the angels, who are far greater in power and strength, do not dare to bring from the Lord a charge of blasphemy against those supernatural beings.

12 These false teachers are like unthinking animals, creatures of instinct, born to be caught and destroyed. They scoff at things they do not understand, and like animals, they will be destroyed.

False Teacher
Matthew Henry's commentary points out the angels report back to the Lord, both natural and supernatural.  It appears that they do not revel in reporting evil but somehow these false teachers are cavalierly accusing supernatural beings without even trembling.  This class of angels might be under protection similar to what was given to Cain when he was expelled.  

Pastor Mike Pickard writes:  Writing of the false teachers, he says that they live immoral lives, defy authority, and scoff at supernatural beings, meaning that they mock the spiritual realm, and instead act like unthinking animals following their sinful desires because they don’t have God’s Spirit in them.

Michael Heiser does an amazing job of explaining the elohim (angelic beings) and the Divine Council; they are given dominion over the Nations.  Psalm 82 very eloquently shows the Lord judging the supernatural beings placed over the nations, for a mere mortal and false teacher to do so in ignorance is especially egregious and galling to the Lord.

In conclusion, the fiery fisherman whose reckless passion we look at with admiration and chagrin gives us a very clear picture of the world that we find ourselves in right now.

American Pie - An American Prophecy

My college car did not have Air Conditioning, which is fine for the temperate North Carolina mountains but makes for an uncomfortable afternoon commute in Charlotte.  One August day in 1990, I was baking in the asphalt oven, traffic was gridlocked, and my nerves were frayed.  On a whim, I pulled into a restaurant.  Never one to eat by myself, I did not have a book or a cell phone to keep me occupied but the booth was cool and dinning room empty so I settled in patiently anticipating my burrito el grande.

1980 Honda Accord - Air Conditioning Optional
In the quiet, the opening strum of American Pie came over the speakers.  I smiled, as does anyone who grew up in a time when radio stations would actually play an 8:40 song.  My American Pie story is of being a 4 year old with a ruptured appendix being rushed to the hospital while singing the chorus.  I still remember laying down in the back seat and my Mother admonishing me to please pick another song.  I didn't understand why it upset her and it hurt less when I sang.

Anyway, back to the Mexican restaurant:  As I sat there I heard the song for the first time.  Notions of the Rapture and the End Times were a concept that I had the briefest acquaintance and then only because my Dad had begun his journey into eschatology.  I was finishing my burrito as Don was finishing his song and it struck me that this song was about America after the Rapture.  I was stunned.  I remember mentioning it to my Dad later and his warm brown eyes caught that look, the one he got when I would get on his level spiritually and feed him a nugget.  Oh Lord, I miss that look.

So in honor of Dad, who loved prophecy (and pie, by the way), and in honor of Mom who didn't wreck the car on the way to the ER all those years ago, and July 4th, 2015 let's break down American Pie from a Prophetic view point.

Conservatives Will be the First to Go


Revelation Chapter 13 chronicles the rise of the False Prophet and the Antichrist, who are given their power by the great Dragon, Satan.  We read that this evil trinity will impose a mark on the world.  No one will be able to buy or sell anything lest they carry this mark.  Such a worldwide system of control was not technologically possible until now.  Make no mistake friend, the time is short, and the Tribulation is at the door.

The machinations of the US government in terms of spying are unprecedented.  They have built massive data collection sites,  where the NSA is storing trillions of kilobytes of Data.  They are monitoring and cataloging every key stroke you make, every word you say on social media, even conversations that you hold in your home can be recorded via microphones in computers, smart TVs and smartphones.  They have the ability to watch you via your laptop camera.  Your phone calls home to your wife are being recorded.  They are cataloging your web photos for facial recognition.  They are determining which businesses are approved and starving the ones who don't fall in line with their master plan by pressuring banks to drop the accounts.  US Police are no longer required to protect and serve but instead must enforce the law.  The National Guard has had helicopters confiscated and put into federal control.  Free speech is under worldwide attack and men no longer tolerate biblical and moral teachings.  We could go on for hundreds of pages, all sited and documented, but the stage is set.

The last kingdom in Nebuchadnezzar's dream has not yet come to pass, the feet of clay and iron with ten toes.  We see these ten kingdoms in Revelation 12 and Revelation 13.  The great harlot of Revelation 17 is the last great false religion and is represented by a woman riding on the beast.  This image currently resides outside of the EU Parliament Building in Strasbourg, FR.


The blind public will read the above with a ho hum.  This is obvious, as all of the above are not a blip on the radar.  The enemy is before you but the game is on and the wife just came in with KFC, so who cares?  These blind dupes will cheer with joy at the ascension of the Man of Perdition, who has come to save the World.  They will gladly line up to take their microchip, they are as like lemmings over a cliff.

The church will be gone.  The Great Restrainer will be caught up in the air with Christ and the man of lawlessness shall be revealed.  Those who have heard the Gospel and rejected it will be given a powerful delusion and believe the Antichrist.

What of my conservative friends, my Tea Party Patriots, who love what the US used to be and have worked tirelessly and futility to put things right?  You have already been demonized.  The Left calls you all sorts of vile names designed to marginalize you and they have succeeded brilliantly. Make no mistake, if you are a conservative that is not a Christian, you will be the first to go.  They have your name, they have your face, they have your bank account, they know you friends, they monitor your car by its GPS, the listen to your calls, they will control your job and you will be an enemy of the state.  The independent patriotic fervor that you hold may prevent you from accepting the new world order but your life here on this Earth will be in immediate peril and you will be hunted and killed like an animal.

I do not write these words lightly but I write them in obedience for it is clearly written what is coming, it is clearly demonstrated in the signs of the times.  I weep for you if you have not accepted Jesus as your Savior, it is written that God wishes all to be saved and has provided a way for you to avoid the trial to come and to not be present at the Final Judgement.  For there will be no where for you to hide on that terrible day but know this that every knee shall bow, every tongue shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.  You can do it now or you will do it later, your choice.
