End Times Bible Prophecy Escape confusion, fear and doubts by reading Revelation literally...

Now You Can Understand the End Times by Reading Revelation Literally

Discover...how two keys Jesus taught unlock Biblical prophecies of End Times timeline so you can finally know what's coming—even before the Rapture

2015 was another bust for Bible prophecy fulfilment, despite being a boom for prophecy speculation and mainstream media coverage of prophecy.

What did we learn? Are we any wiser for prophecy about 2016?

Let's review and see. We were told simultaneously by Jonathan Cahn, John Hagee and Mark Biltz that 2015 "could be" like the financially disastrous "Shemitah years of 2001 and 2008"...AND/OR..."something bad for Israel" like the "4 blood moon years of 1492, 1967, or 1973," respectively. Many believed them or at least felt it better to "wait and see before judging, just in case" (unlike me who debunked such speculation as early as 2008).

Nevertheless, we got a year like 2000 when, despite popular coverage of the "Y2K computer bug" speculation, none of the grand predictions happened (such as, "the end of civilization").

In other words, 2015 gave new prophecy students another great opportunity to learn a valuable lesson on the difference between persuasive speculation and plain, literal Bible prophecy--just as 2000 gave me when I was still new to this subject.

So what does 2016 hold for us?

According to an Ipsos poll, almost half of Christians think the Second Coming is "at least somewhat likely" each year. Yet after almost 2000 years of hoping this each year and Jesus still not coming back, do you ever get the sense that perhaps Christians have been misunderstanding or missing something key?

Again, will you be wiser for the wear this time? Wiser than the average Christian without enough discernment to not hope in vain for something that is not going to happen this year?

If you're not so sure, then I can help. On this prophecy website I update an article every year (since 2007) on why Jesus cannot come back for either the Second Coming or the Rapture each year. It's been right eight years straight because it's not taken from my imagination. It comes from the plain words of Jesus and other (real) prophets on what must happen "first" or it means "the end is not yet" as Jesus said (Mt 24:6).

Read the article to learn 7 events that must come before Jesus does (and 5 before the Rapture)...

Revelation's 3 Resurrections vs. Heaven/Hell At Death

Bible prophecy teaches about not just one, but three future mass resurrections.

Why God Kills Two Thirds Of Us When Jesus Returns (Zec 13:8)

That was in 2006, and now nine expectant years later, Jesus still has not come back. Want to know why not and why he still won't come in 2016? The reason has to do with several overlooked prerequisites to the rapture, until which the “end is not yet” according to Jesus himself. When you know what these events are, your grasp of prophecy will improve dramatically. »»

What The September, 2017 Revelation 12 Sign Tells Us

Efrain Rodriguez Asteroid Tsunami Prophecy vs. Bible Prophecy

Proper understanding of Wormwood (Rev 6-8) and America (Rev 17-18) in Revelation shows where he may have heard from God and where he probably let Christian eschatology and conspiracy theory slip in. »»

Mystery of the Shemitah Review - US Crash in 2015?

Jonathan Cahn's shemitah prophecy book predicts a financial collapse or "something" like it for America possibly in 2015 because he claims it is a sabbath year. But is it?

Ark of the Covenant Found? Role in End Time Prophecy

Surprisingly very little, but enough to discount the ark having any role in end time prophecy. »»

Why Is the Tribe of Dan Not in Revelation 7's 144,000?

Why is the tribe of Dan is missing from the 144,000 in Revelation 7? Theories abound. Is it punishment for Dan's idolatry and Dan being the city of Rehoboam's idol worship?

Understanding the Nephilim and their Role in Bible Prophecy

How to Tell When Events Are Prophetic and How God Speaks Today

Is God speaking today through current events? Christian leaders claim he is sending us signs in the heavens and in events on earth. If he is, most Christians don't want to miss the warnings or instructions these events might convey. But how do we know when a disaster, eclipse, or war is just that, or if God is behind it or trying to tell us something through it?

Jesus Told His Disciples One Sign of the End, But Do You Understand It?

Jesus' disciples asked Jesus the very question that every Christian still wonders today: how do we know when you're coming back? Amazingly, Jesus answered by giving the actual "signs of his coming and the end of the age." He didn't refuse! We can read his straightforward answer in Matthew, Mark and Luke. Yet Christians don't understand his answer as evidenced by how they fall for every speculative counterfeit end time sign theory hatched by prophecy writers in its place.

"Four Blood Moons: Something Is About To Change" Review

Does John Hagee's book on the four blood moon prophecy help you understand the biblical significance of the 2014-2015 tetrad? Considering that the first 170 pages of "Four Blood Moons: Something Is About To Change" is background material on prophecy, Israel in Scripture and history with only 24 pages on the coming tetrad, that's a fair question. Here's my review of the book to help others evaluate the book and its ideas. »»

Blood Moons of Jesus Return in 2015? Mark Biltz Theory Debunked

Parable of the Fig Tree: Jesus On Knowing If He's Coming Now or Later

Can you know if Jesus is coming now or not, without knowing the date? Most don't think so because they miss that Jesus in his own words instructed us on how through his Parable of the Fig Tree. Unfortunately, the parable is commonly misread as a prophecy referring to major events in the history of modern Israel one "generation" away from Christ's return, supposedly allowing you to calculate the second coming date. But does "this generation" refer to Jesus' first century audience or maybe to our generation, the "last generation?" Discover the real meaning of the parable and the key to discerning where we are in Bible prophecy that it plainly teaches when you let it. »»

Rabbi Judah ben Samuel's Jubilee Prophecy - Messiah in 2017?

Rabbi Judah ben Samuel supposedly made an amazing prophecy concerning the future of Jerusalem that already has three accurate fulfillments from 1517-1967. The prophecy further predicts the start of the "Messianic end time" by 2017. But is the prophecy trustworthy and can Jesus even return in 2017? Read on to learn why how people interpret and use this prophecy is flawed. Also, what did Jesus himself reveal as the signs of his coming to watch for...instead of date watching? »»

The Third Temple Prophecy: What's Holding Back Its Fulfillment?

Many Christians consider the rebuilding of the Temple and restarting of animal sacrifices not a prophetic sign, but an affront to Christ and the church (the "real" temple?). If you learn what the Book of Hebrews says is the actual purpose of the Temple and sacrifices, the plain prophecies about them coming again will make more sense. Discover what must happen first before Temple construction can begin, what prophecy may bring it, when it happens in relation to the 70th week, and what if anything you should do when you see the Third Temple rebuilt. »»

Discerning Conspiracy Theories With Bible Prophecy and (Un)Common Sense

Do you have friends who bother you with the latest conspiracy theories from YouTube or fringe "insider" websites? Do they leave you worried?

Asteroid Near Miss, But Bible Predicts Major Asteroid Impact Soon

As Asteroid 2008 QE2 reminded us once again, objects orbiting close to earth are a constant threat. Although this concerns scientists, Christians probably fear missing the rapture and facing the Antichrist a lot more than a deep impact scenario. If they only realized that there is an explicit prophecy of an asteroid impact on earth before the rapture and Great Tribulaton even happens, they might reconsider. Find out where this prophecy is found, how the Bible indicates it happens...and where the righteous will be protected while it happens. »»

Five Surprising Lessons of Bible Prophecy

We study Bible prophecy expecting to understand what's going to happen along with hopefully some idea of when. Yet along the way, there are several discoveries you won't expect or maybe prefer not to find. For example, God's special place to protect us from the Great Tribulation is not in heaven and how we get there takes a bit more than professing Jesus. Disappointing, for some, is the constant failure of date setters. Yet there are still good timing clues available, enough to raise the prospect of having to wait way longer for the Second Coming than anyone dreamed. Perhaps most surprising is why it's OK if you don't study (or understand) Bible prophecy at all? »»

The Coming 360 Day Year Predicted in Revelation (1260 Days / 42 months)

Everyone knows there are 365 days in a year--except, seemingly, the Bible. The Bible repeatedly talks like there are only 360 days in a year and even 30 days in all months but never speaks of a shorter month or a 365 day year like we see today. While some say it simply means primitive man had inaccurate calendars, that does not explain why the length of the Great Tribulation given in Revelation only works on a similar 360/30 calendar. Is the 360/30 calendar of revelation a "prophetic calendar" needed to interpret the 1260, 1290, 1335, and 2300 days or do these day counts literally mean what they say that the calendar will be different then? Is that really possible and what does the troublesome Wormwood star that Revelation mentions just before the Tribulation have to do with it? Find out why once again, the Bible can make sense more literally than anyone thought! »»

Comet ISON 2013: Nibiru Doomsday or Omen of Christ's Return?

When is a comet not just a comet, but a divine warning sign like Jesus spoke of coming in the end times? If you do not know how to answer that, Comet "ISON" may test you with fear and anxiety in 2013. Doomsday watchers are already predicting that Comet ISON is Planet X, Nibiru, Wormwood, or a gravitational earthquake/deep impact threat. Alternatively, some predict it will make a spectacular daytime visible sign in the sky one month before Christ's return (yes, on Christmas, 2013). Is Comet ISON a good or bad sign, Nibiru, Wormwood or a fulfillment of some other Bible prophecy? Find out how to tell when a comet is just a comet and what must come before Wormwood and other things Jesus warned about come upon us. »»

Malachy's Last Pope Identified - in Bible Prophecy

The prophesied last pope is here according to Saint Malachy's vision of 112 popes "Peter the Roman/Petrus Romanus." If Malachy is accurate, then Armageddon and the Tribulation he "pastures" during cannot be more than a single pope's reign away or a few decades. But is Malachy's last pope a reliable end time sign that faithful saints should get excited about? What does Bible prophecy say about the pope? Is he the Antichrist or the False Prophet? Learn the surprising details that both Catholic and Bible prophecy agree on about the last pope's evil reign. »»

The Harbinger: Has America Been Warned of Judgment?

"The Harbinger" novel proposes that God has sent America nine omens or warnings of judgment starting with the 9/11 attacks. These "harbingers" include the Great Recession seven years after 9/11 along with several surprising coincidences at Ground Zero and "vows" against God supposedly made by US leaders. Rabbi Cahn claims that in all this God is following the "prophetic warning pattern" of Isaiah 9:10 that leads to economic downfall if we do not repent. But is this a message from God or even accurate to how God speaks? When you compare this theory to the real pattern of warning and judgment that is spelled out not just in one verse to Israel but in story after story in the Bible, you can see for yourself whether America is in judgment or being warned of judgment just yet. »»

Post-2012 Doomsday Blues? 4 Lessons or Benefits

Although many will be relieved when December 21st, 2012 passes without any of the predicted disasters, some will instead be confused or even depressed the day after. They will feel stupid and wonder why they did not see through it like most people did (who may be saying "I told you so.") Certainly it is easy to negatively judge the 2012 hysteria and those who spread it as malicious or make them wrong. Yet, there is actually a silver lining to 2012 and hysteria like it. Understand four easily overlooked benefits and lessons from doomsday date hysteria to help you get past the post-doomsday date blues or the temptation to judge those who participated in it--even if that includes yourself. »»

Is America Mystery Babylon the Great? Six Objections Answered

Is America, the most dominant and influential nation of the end times, really not found in Bible prophecy as most Christians believe? If that doesn't sound right to you, then you are not alone. Revelation and Jeremiah talk about a dominant end time power named “Mystery Babylon the Great” which stands in the way of evil but at the same time is so wicked itself that God judges her before the rest of the world. Sadly, there is no better plain literal fulfillment of Babylon than America today. Except...how can God judge a nation who does so much good and not judge so many arguably worse nations like China or Iran? How can Babylon be a nation when it says it's a “city?” Where is the blood of slain prophets “found in her?” These common objections and more are answered...plus why you do not need to fear being trapped in America when she is burned. »»

Ten Signs of the End Times (or Zero So Far?)

Are there "signs of the end times" that we are supposed to watch for? Have some already happened or are signs happening now? What if we miss these signs?

Find out how to discern these signs and to better recognize the few true signs that the Bible does talk about us witnessing in the end times.

The Two Witnesses - Fire Breathing Fun?

The Two Witnesses are impressive end time figures who are the subject of much speculation today. Christians alternately believe that they are Enoch and Elijah (who allegedly never died), Moses and Elijah (from the Transfiguration), and even others alive today. But are they here and do we need to figure out who they are or worry about what happens if we don't? Find out why no one in their right mind claim should claim to be the Two Witnesses»»

The Four End Time Groups: Will You Be in the Safe Group?

Most Christians recognize just two groups of people in the present time or the end times: the saved and the damned now and later the raptured and "left behind." But Jesus and Bible prophecy do not describe it so narrowly. There will be not just two, but four groups we can fall into for most of the final seven years. Find out what these end time categories are, which one you'll likely fall into (it's not what you think), and what to do today to help you make it into the right group later. »»

God's Bizarre Plan to "Catch & Release" Satan Before Burning Him Up

The biblical teaching of a Devil inspiring evil in the world is so disturbing that it causes some to doubt that "Satan" is meant literally. After all, why would God create or tolerate a Devil? Adding insult to injury, Revelation 20 tells us that 1000 years after the Jesus returns and jails Satan, God will let Satan loose again only to immediately start a bloody attack on Jerusalem. What is God thinking? Find out how God keeping Satan around today and releasing him from jail later (before he goes to the Lake of Fire with all the wicked) is the most loving thing he could do because of the important truth it demonstrates about evil. »»

Isaiah 17: When Will Israel Nuke Damascus?: The Clue in Psalm 83

Isaiah prophesied the destruction and abandonment of Damascus, Syria over 2700 years ago. Yet the city continues today, despite so many Middle East wars and predictions that "this year" it will finally come to pass. So what is missing that is holding this prophecy back? Israel's stike on Iran? Or perhaps the overlooked prophecy in the Psalms about a future Arab war alliance targeted at wiping out Israel. Find out why the Arabs are sure to one day acquire weapons of mass destruction that leads them to finally attack Israel...and how their defeat opens up for the "beginning of sorrows" and Great Tribulation to finally happen.

Why Jesus Won't Come Back in 2012 (Or Any Year Soon)

An Ipsos poll in 2006 found that 25% of adults believed it was at least "somewhat likely" that "Jesus Christ will return to Earth" in the coming year. Among white evangelical Christian adults, a whopping 46% believed this. Yet years later Jesus has still not returned. Want to know why Jesus did not come in 2007 or any year since then and still will not come in 2012? »»

God's 6000 Year Plan: Dating Jesus' Return?

Has God given man 6000 years to rule himself before Jesus returns to take over? Many Christians think the Bible teaches this and they use leverage it to predict the year of Jesus' Second Coming. But is it possible? How do you count the years? What do they start from? (Hint: not Adam/Creation) Also, what does Adam's age for Seth's birth tell us about the latest that Jesus can return?

Six Wrong Ways to Face the End Times (& One Right)

Bible prophecy says that bad things are coming. Conspiracy theories found on the Web only seem to confirm this. In light of this warning, what should we do to prepare?

Will America Crash Economically or Recover? - Bible's Surprising Answer

The Mark of the Beast and How To Avoid It Today

The Book of Revelation is rife with confusing passages. Yet it is crystal clear on the need to avoid the Mark of the Beast at all costs. But how do you make sure you do? What if they force it on you or trick you into taking it? Don't we need to identify it now to best avoid it? Is it a figurative mark and somehow already here today? Also, why would anyone take it given the clear warnings described against it? Find out everything you need to know about the Mark of the Beast—plus a startling new insight on the months of torture awaiting those who take action too late.

The Two (Not One) Gog/Magog Wars Recognized At Last

In the intriguing Ezekiel 38 & 39 Gog/Magog war prophecies, God has hidden his meaning similar to how Jesus hid his with his parables (Mk 4:10-11). Since these two neighboring chapters are so similar, the consensus is that they are the same prophecy predicting a single attack on Israel by the same "Gog." Under that mistaken assumption most try to identify Gog/Magog, often using current events as their guide, with ever evolving results. This also leads to wrong conclusions on the time frame of the prophecies. The solution to this impasse is to forget the identity question and see that Ezekiel 38 and 39 are not one, but two separate future wars. Then when you link them up to parallel prophecies in Revelation, the timing of these two wars becomes crystal clear. »»

Why "No Man Knows the Day or Hour" Does Not Apply Forever

When Jesus said, "no man knows the day or hour," he nullified the use of the Bible (or anything else) to "set dates" or predict when end time events will happen. But his words are not clear enough today alone to silence the date setters. Some people think "day or hour" allows for knowing the year or is only code for the Feast of Trumpets. On the opposite extreme, some think Jesus meant that his return could happen at any moment or that we could learn nothing about timing and to therefore not even study his prophecies. Find out what Jesus really meant by looking at what Jesus said in context...and also by considering what he did not say.

Why Most Christians Won't Be Raptured (& How To Make Sure You Are)

The rapture is the hope of hundreds of millions of Christians. Unfortunately, according to Bible prophecy, most will be “left behind,” weeping and gnashing their teeth as Jesus portrayed it. This happens because they trusted in what men have taught on the rapture without understanding what Jesus actually said in the Bible about belonging to him at his coming (1Co 15:23). Find out what most Christians are missing about the true requirements for the rapture so that you can be sure not to be left behind. »»

Why We Fall For Doomsday Dates (And How To Never Again)

Believers look forward to Jesus' Second Coming and hope someone can figure out when it will be. Perhaps the Bible has the timing hidden somewhere there among all its numbers? But it's clear that date setters have been missing something important if you study their long track record of failure. The key is to understand the true purpose of Bible prophecy that Jesus explained which date setters miss. Find out how to never fall for a doomsday date again and how to correctly use end times Bible prophecy. »»

Which “Audience” Will God “Keep From the Tribulation” (Rev 3:10)?

Most would prefer to avoid the Great Tribulation through a "pretrib rapture." Revelation 3:10 is often used to prove this since it promises to keep “thee” from a global hour of testing for all on earth. But who is “thee”—all believers or someone else? The audience of any passage is what determines that. Ignoring the audience is a major source of false doctrine that deceives and even puts us in bondage. Learn how to pay attention to audience through several examples including the letter to the Church in Philadelphia of Revelation 3. »»

Seven End Times Fears of Believers (and Their Solutions)
