The World Economic Forum

The world economic Forum had its conference last week and these are the people who are going to save you.

World Economic Forum Annual Meeting 2023, Davos | World Economic Forum (weforum.org)

Schwab, Ursula van der Leyen (the leader of the European Union), this lady is actually Mrs Zelensky (the Ukrainian President’s wife) and, I’m not sure who this one is. In any case, Schwab is the World Economic Forum kaiser, he runs the show, and they have their conference in Davos.

According to The Mail, they were protected by thousands of police officers and soldiers. The elite of the world arrived in their private jets at Davos for a week of conference starting on the 17th of January in which they hoped to shape the global agenda for the coming year. They came along with a hungry press who mostly supported their attempts to save the world. They were treated with food for a week also a lot of high-class prostitutes thrown in to serve their clients.

Daily Mail

According to the official lists, there were 2,658 attendees, heads of state, business leaders, media tycoons, academics, heads of a national organizations like Antonio Guterres (the UN Secretary General), Jan Stoltenberg (NATO Secretary General), heads of the IMF, the World Trade Organization, the World Health Organization, and multitudes of other global organizations coming together to sort out the problems of the world.

There were some prominent UK politicians including, Sir Keir Starmer, leader of the Labour Party and Rachel Reeves the Labour Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer. They were very supportive of the World Economic Forum programme and pledged to put it into practice if elected.

I just watched an interview with Emily Maitlis who interviewed Keir Starmer on a news program where she asked him: ‘If you have to choose between Westminster and Davos, which one do you choose?

No hesitation from Starmer who answered: ‘Davos.’

‘Why?’ countered Emily Maitlis.

He said, ‘Because Westminster is a kind of tribal shouting match with no meaningful discussions. At Davos, you can exchange with people. You can see yourself working with in the future.’

So, if you get a labour government, he’s going to work with these guys to sort out the problems of the world. Some people say that Rishi Sunak was also appointed by them, so it may not be much different if you have a Tory government.

Now, this is one of the problems that you have with these people who are manipulating things behind the scenes and controlling the political process. They issued a global risk report which described the extreme chaos that is gripping our world right now as a ‘polycrisis’. That’s a new word they have invented ‘a polycrisis’.

We’re on the brink of a polycrisis. How worried should we be? | World Economic Forum (weforum.org)

They said that,

Because of this, you’ve got future and global present risks which interact with each other and a cluster of global risks with compounding effects such as the overall impact exceeds the sum of each part.

WEF Risk Report 2023

What do they mean by that? As I see it, in simple words, ‘the world’s in big trouble and needs the WEF’s help and guidance to get you out of the trouble.’

Karl Schwab has already said that we need to have a deep systemic and cultural restructuring of our world, that the world will look differently after we’ve been through this transition phase called the Great Reset.

The Great Reset | World Economic Forum (weforum.org)

Unfortunately, virtually every solution on the agenda at Davos in dealing with the polycrisis will be bad for the likes of you and me. These involve plans to limit and eventually ban the use of fossil fuels to save the planet from supposed climate change, stop using cars and gas boilers, etc.

They’ve got another ‘very good idea’ which has come out called ‘the 15-minute City’. Have you heard of that one?

The surprising stickiness of the “15-minute city”

Now, in some ways, this sounds like quite a good idea. You get everything within 15 minutes of where you live, so you can reach it by cycling or walking or public transport. You don’t need to travel 20 miles to the Bridge Christian Fellowship because you’ve got another fellowship where you live. So, tough on those who come from more than 15 minutes away.

Everything you need will be reached within 15 minutes by foot, bike, or by public transport. It’s a plan to improve the quality of life by creating cities where everything you do is done within 15 minutes of where you live. It sounds like a good idea.

They’ve got plans to launch it in Oxford I think, Canterbury is on the way there. Paris is also on the way to using it, Melbourne (Australia) is already using it, Portland (USA) is using it. It’s a plan which is being proposed by people around the world. Environmentalists especially claim that this is going to be the answer to pollution, to using cars.

Opponents say it’ll be the first phase of attempting to limit where you can go, how you live, as well as developing means of measuring how much carbon you use, which will be used to control the population with the possibility of introducing a carbon passport.

Therefore, you’ll be measured on how much energy you use in your house, in your means of transport and, if you go over the limit, then you’ll get fined or you’ll get stopped even from using any more carbon.

Now, that would take quite a lot to put in place, but there are people who say that they’re working on this programme.

One of the things which came out of the World Economic Forum conference was what they need to develop as a means of controlling information sources, the internet, and all this kind of information sources, even what we do at the Bridge Christian Fellowship, to control what you’re saying and what information is going out because there are certain things they don’t want you to hear.

weforum.org

They want to control the agenda. They need to ensure that the information that gets out to the population will be accepted by the population and that they will comply with it, especially on things like the vaccine programme, decarbonization, even the whole LGBT programme which is part of their agenda as well.

Tony Blair – Agenda Contributor

Tony Blair at the World Economic Forum was pushing for a digital tracking system to determine which people have taken the Covid vaccine.

They also want to use Central Bank Digital Currencies as a way to track and control people and they need to overcome the fact that there’s a growing resistance to this. And there are ‘pesky’ people like me who are putting stuff on the internet and giving talks which undermine the programme they have in place.

weforum.org

They want to stop such opposition, and they want to ban us from YouTube and take things off the internet if you’re going against the programme.

Can the programme be resisted?

There is a growing resistance to the programme and people are often drawing attention to, for example, the negative effects of mass vaccination with mRNA vaccines, including pointing out the increase in the death rate amongst the triple vaccinated, heart attacks, strokes, sudden death among young and healthy people, damage to the natural immune system. I don’t know how you feel about the vaccine. I’m not going to say whether you should take it or not but I took one dose and that was it. I’m not taking any more. I regret taking the one dose.

But you can’t, say these things. Increasingly, you’re seeing that you can’t question the agenda.

I don’t know if you followed the case of Andrew Bridgen MP this month. He spoke out in Parliament. He didn’t talk a about wild conspiracy theory stuff, what he said was pretty much down the line. He asked the questions: Why has there been no investigation of the high number of adverse effects from the vaccine? Why is it not being investigated by medical and government authorities? Why is it never mentioned on the BBC? Why is it never mentioned in the mass media? And some quite legitimate questions.

Andrew Bridgen: What has suspended MP said about vaccines? – BBC News

Next thing, he finds his Conservative Party whip suspended because he made some reference to the Holocaust. One of my Jewish friends said that ‘It was absolute bunking. It has nothing to do with what he said about the Holocaust. It’s just because he was going against the agenda.’

You’ll find that people who speak out against the agenda will get de-platformed. If they’re in science, they’ll find their research grants are removed, and if they’re in some kind of media, they’ll find that, if they try and speak out negatively against the agenda, they get silenced.

We’ve had some minor infractions of this even through the kind of talks I’m giving here, and this raises a big question: Why has there been no investigation about the adverse effects of the vaccine? Even Pfizer has admitted a lot of things about the adverse effects.

firstpost.com

Yet you don’t get answers to it, you just get the information being suppressed and, if you bring it up, you’re told that you’re a ‘conspiracy theorist’ and you’re undermining the agenda.

They’ve got all these ‘Fact Checkers’ which are supposed to give you the facts yet, you find out the Fact Checkers are just backing up what we’re supposed to say.

Now, if you paid attention, what they’re saying at the World Economic Forum is that ‘We’ve got to have control of the information agenda‘.

I think that’s quite sinister because it means you then have a government force which is controlling free speech and that, if you question it, you get silenced. Watch this process.

Are all these these issues being made up or are they real? There is no doubt there are real issues which are confronting us, they’re not all made up.

I think there is a certain amount of manipulation, especially on the climate change and on the Covid issue, but there are certain things which are happening, which are undeniably happening, and which need a solution.

Global financial woes, where do they lead?

This is a headline from the paper which says 2.5 trillion reasons the UK must grow:

What are the 2.5 trillion reasons? The reasons are that the national debt hit 2.5 trillion Pounds last week.

In 1997 it was 350 billion, that’s a fraction of 2.5 trillion. It’s equivalent to 99.5% of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) produced by the country as a whole and the debt represents 37,000 Pounds for every man, woman, and child in this country.

All major industrial nations are in debt. Whether it’s Japan, Italy, U.S., France, Canada, they’re all much worse than we are and last month, the treasury borrowed 27.4 billion Pounds.

The Debt Ceiling (pgpf.org)

You might think these are just figures, but they represent a huge amount of money which is going out and not coming in. As I’ve said before, if your money’s going out and it’s not coming in, what’s going to happen to you? In the end, you are going to end up bankrupt.

Another article in the paper said that half the population take more out of the state pot than they put in. We have public sector workers demanding more and more money for doing possibly less and less work and also, (I’m not trying to be racist here) we’ve got 500,000 immigrants coming in every year which is a population the size of Liverpool. We are supposed to give housing, to educate, to provide welfare and health care to them and there comes a point where the money just isn’t there.

ons.gov.uk

Now, I’m not saying that from a racist point of view. We’ve done things to help people who come from other countries here and we’re not trying to discriminate against them but it’s an unsustainable situation.

Added to that we’re being told that we have to fund the Ukraine war, we have to make extremely expensive changes and even reparations for climate change, and the question is: Where’s the money coming from?

It’s all leading to a massive crisis. It’s happening in the States as well. The U.S. has now hit the limit for ‘debt ceiling’ of 31.4 trillion dollars in January.

There are limits to how much the Federal Government can have at once which are imposed by Congress.

If they don’t raise the debt ceiling, they come to default. And, according to the statistics I’ve got here, they have until June to raise it.

The measures they put through are okay until June. After June, a crisis hits America unless they can raise the debt ceiling.

The Republicans control Congress. They don’t want to raise the debt ceiling without putting a lot of pressure on President Biden.

If the debt ceiling falls then, they have to cut about 35% of spending which would in turn mean mass layoffs, something which is already happening in part.

The economy is grinding to a halt.

This is one of the things I’ve written about in my Russia article.

Russia and China are coming together to try to change the Global Financial System by removing the dollar as the world’s Reserve Currency.

If they manage to achieve that, then the American Dollar will also go down, and there’ll be a massive economic crisis in America.

Where does it lead to?

Here’s another article from the Daily Express which talks about The shock death of the High Street banks by 2027.

Express.co.uk

What do they mean by that? Why would they want to get rid of the High Street Banks?

Behind this you can see that there is an agenda to bring in a cashless society, to change the way in which we exchange money for products, and to change it from the cash and checks and even credit cards you have now to what they call Central Bank Digital Currencies.

If you get to Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDC), you actually don’t need High Street Banks because everything is now data processed, and it’s run through the Central Bank. You don’t need cash, everything comes onto the cashless system.

I won’t go into all the details of this. I’ve written about it the article ‘No way Out’ within the latest Light for the Last Days magazine.

Basically, the scenario would end up with the government controlling your finances through what they call Central Bank Digital Currencies. And you will only get the money which they give to you or allow you to have. They can then control and track every purchase you make: from a cup of coffee to a car, to anything else.

What does the Reset system look like?

According to what I’ve read, with Central Bank Digital Currencies, the globalists will be fully able to make money disappear at any time. They want to program digital money so it can only be spent in some places by a time limit or else your money will be reset to zero, if it’s not spent that is, by a certain time. Therefore, they can wipe out your savings.

weforum.org

This is the Great Reset, it’s their plan on a global scale. If it’s going to happen, you could see there could be a connection between this and what it says in the Book of Revelation about a time when there’s somebody called the Antichrist or the Beast who comes in and brings in a system in which you can’t buy or sell without his say.

In that scenario, you need a mark, you need some permission from him to buy and sell.

It’s there, in Revelation chapter 13. Are we on the way to it?

11 Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon. 12 And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. 13 He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men. 14 And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived. 15 He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. 16 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.

Revelation 13.11-18

A lot of things are happening now of which you may not be aware. However, if you look behind the scenes, they are coming.

Another article I got from the Daily Mail on Wednesday is about the Chinese spying on you.

I thought: ‘This has got to be way out!‘ It can’t be true. But then I looked at it and, apparently, it is true. Television, smart meters, fridges, doorbells, even light bulbs are being used in our homes. There exist very real fears that Beijing has filled Britain’s homes with gadgets that China can use to spy on you.

Xiaomi is an one of a number of Chinese companies whose devices are commonly found in UK homes. What innocent buyers don’t know is that, as well as providing entertainment, they’re capable of tracking our behaviour.

Xiaomi Official Website丨Mobile – Mi UK

Internet Service Providers (ISPs) know what you buy online, which websites you visit; they can build up a profile of you to target you with adverts. But what happens when your online lives are being monitored not by a company for marketing but by the Chinese Communist Party whose interests could be considerably more suspect?

Now, according to this article, that is a real danger. There’s a danger that increasingly concerns privacy campaigners as well as security experts. Yesterday, the government was warned that the Chinese Trojan Horse technology posed a wide-ranging threat to UK.

CITI Seminars on Global Digital Governance | Columbia Business School

In a report by Oda, a Washington-based security consultancy it says that microchips embedded in Chinese-made cars, domestic appliances, and even light bulbs can be weaponized to spy on millions of people.

The government’s own Surveillance Watchdog, Professor Fraser Sampson, raised the alarm about the ‘digital asbestos’ of Chinese technology as it emerged that more than a third of police forces in the UK are currently using CCTV cameras, drones, and other technologies from companies with close links to the Chinese Communist Party.

blog.gov.uk

So our police are also using stuff which comes out of China. I believe you know what the Chinese use their stuff for, that is, to monitor people, to track them down, and to control them. Beijing monitors the lives of its own citizens through electronic goods connected to the internet such as TVs and smartphones. What’s to stop the Chinese from doing the same to British householders?

That’s the question asked by some people. There are massive opportunities to interfere in domestic affairs, even domestic political procedures with disinformation campaigns and, the article goes on to say that central to this is China’s so-called National Intelligence Law passed in 2017, making it mandatory for any Chinese firm to Aid National Intelligence Gathering, including through the deflection of data on both foreign and domestic targets.

Most companies in China are either outright state-owned or have the CCP as a majority shareholder or, receive lavish subsidies from the government.

In China, smart TVs are routinely used as a mass surveillance tools by the CCP to spy on its citizens. I don’t know if you’ve read 1984 but they have a tele screen there that can watch you watching them.

A Hong Kong newspaper was quoted saying that

The Chinese Communist Party appeared to be implementing a National Surveillance Network which included watching people in their own homes and monitoring their contacts and interactions.

Hong Kong newspaper

The paper was then shut down by the government.

Could the same thing be happening across the world as China expands its influence? I think it’s possible.

Apparently, about 63 billion Pounds worth of goods were imported from China, and they can use cameras, microphones, smart home devices, internet connections, all these things to survey the people who buy them.

It sounds far-fetched but this is a serious report in a newspaper. I guess they know what they’re talking about. It’s also part of what they call the Internet of Things (IoT).

This is really interesting because I think it is pretty much in line with the 666 system.

Something else which could come out of this is possible cyber attacks which would cause chaos to the system.

Cyber security experts are particularly concerned about China’s role in the wider Internet of Things, the vast network of smart devices which connect and share data with one another, processing commands via the Internet.

What is the Internet of Things, and how does it work? (ibm.com)

The Internet of Things can hook up devices such as fridges and ovens to the internet, power smart doorbells, internet routers and provides information for and about smart cars. It can remotely operate anything from lighting systems, to kitchen devices.

The Internet of Things Global Network also serves as the link for most of the world’s major currencies in business areas including logistics, agriculture, security, transport, manufacturing, and military operations as well as the supply chains that connect them all.

Therefore, all these things are connected through this Internet of Things.

Can you see danger in that? Everything’s connected.

The article goes on to say that the Internet of Things is the central nervous system of the global economy. So, I thought, whoever controls that, controls the world. Is that possible?

The heart of the Internet of Things is a tiny device called an ‘IoT module component’ responsible for connecting virtually anything to wireless networks.

Just three Chinese companies now control more than 50 percent of the global markets for IoT modules. They represent nearly 75 percent of the connections made by these modules which, according to analysts, means that the West is becoming dangerously dependent on China’s technological capability in this area.

China leads the way

Another thing, (and I’m not trying to bash the Chinese here because God loves them and I know we’ve got some Chinese friends here). However, I don’t think God loves the Chinese Communist Party. China is leading the way in developing the next generation of computers known as a quantum computers.

Again, this is probably pretty much beyond my understanding but, according to an article in the paper, the quantum apocalypse could tear open everything from internet banking to government secrets and experts warn it’s just years away.

ScienceAlert

This fear was brought into focus earlier this year when an academic paper by Chinese researchers suggested the quantum computer could break the encryption which keeps us safe online, override security devices, and get access to classified information.

If they can get access to classified information, they can then hack into your electricity system, your transport system, your health system, the government system; then they can take over and use this capability for their own purposes.

Now, they’re not there yet but they’re working on it. And this, again, is way beyond my sphere of expertise but I’m just quoting what people who know about these things say.

Tim Callan, a Chief Experience Officer at a cyber security company Sec2go, says that ‘quantum computers could one day make the encryption we use today no longer fit for purpose.

They’re on their way to doing it and, as a result, they could take control of the whole system. Whoever controls the nervous system of the global economy controls the world. Can you see? This is a way in which the Antichrist can take control of the whole system.

China is already in the hands of a communist Antichrist government that persecutes and suppresses Christians. I said a bit about that last week.

This is a picture from Chinese Christian home that had some images of Christianity on their wall.

They were told by the CCP to take it down and to put this up in its place, that’s Xi Jinping and that’s Mao Zedong.

So, if you take down the Christian image and you put up the image of your leaders, does that remind you of something in the Book of Revelation about the image of the Beast?

Mao was probably responsible for the death of 50 million people in the Communist Revolution. Xi Jinping is taking China right back to the darkest days of Communism and to the control and persecution of Christians. Therefore, we have a power which is rising up which is in the hands of something which is distinctly Antichrist.

Where is it going to? Well, I’ll leave it there. But I just leave it as a question which you can answer yourself. I’m not saying that China is the Antichrist. I think the Antichrist will come out of the Western Alliance; we’ll see how it works out.

However, you can see that the tools have been put in place here and I think this whole Internet of Things is part of the preparation for the Antichrist system, for a control system which could theoretically take over the world and monitor and control all the people in the world in their financial dealings, where they go, what they do, what they think, what they say, what Tony Pearce says at the Bridge Christian Fellowship, and to shut him up because that’s not what they want to hear.

You can see that in embryo there, it’s already happening in China, and you can see the potential for it to happen around the world. These World Economic Forum guys, Klaus, he thinks that China is a good nation to follow; he says that they’ve got right over Covid which in fact was not true, they made a total disaster of it, but he says, ‘You watch what China’s doing and it’s a good way to run the world‘.

All of this is, I think, leading up to the end times. Just a couple of things to close with.

Where will our food come from?

The world food shortage. You may not know this but there are people dropping dead from starvation around the world today. Global hunger is spreading rapidly and global food supplies have been getting tighter and tighter. CNN reported that we’re facing the world worst food crisis in modern history.

The reason is the Ukraine war which has shaken up agricultural systems already grappling with the effects of extreme weather and the pandemic. Conditions may have improved but experts do not expect imminent relief. There’s starvation and famine in countries like Somalia which is contending with what the UN called a ‘catastrophic food emergency’.

Pakistan lacks affordable food which is causing panic inside that country. In Afghanistan huge numbers of people are now starving because of a lack of food.

According to Reuters,

the entire continent of Africa is now dealing with the worst food crisis it has ever seen. Across Africa, from east to west, people are experiencing a food crisis that is bigger and more complex than the continent has ever seen. A number of East Africans experience extreme acute food insecurity when lack of food puts livelihoods in immediate danger. This has spiked by 60 percent in the just the last year.

Reuters

Food supplies are also getting tighter on our side of the planet. According to the U.S Department of Agriculture,

the U.S. corn harvest this year was the smallest in years as drought conditions and extreme weather wreaked havoc on croplands. Other harvests around the world have been extremely disappointing too.

U.S Department of Agriculture

One of the factors that has been steadily driving up food prices is the fact that the World Economic Forum is pushing a lot of policies onto people including, not using fertilizers which created the crisis in Sri Lanka last year. And you have a whole lot of things which they’re doing: they tell you ‘not to farm’, ‘not to eat meat’, ‘turn agricultural land into wildlands’, they are telling farmers to get rid of their cattle and, generally, they are trying to change the way people eat.

According to this article It also says that beetle burgers could soon be helping to feed the world.

Beetleburgers could soon reach mass production – helping to feed the world – Study Finds

According to new research, the process uses a fraction of the land and mortar and emits a smaller carbon footprint in comparison with traditional farming. To make this possible a French biotech company is planning a global network of insect farms, including nurseries and slaughterhouses.

So, if you got tired of McDonald’s, you should look forward to eating ‘beetle burgers’.

Unfortunately, they won’t be able to stop the world’s worst food crisis in Revelation. The third Horseman of the Apocalypse is famine which comes on the earth during the tribulation period.

Third Seal: Scarcity on Earth

When He opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come and see.” So I looked, and behold, a black horse, and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not harm the oil and the wine.”

Revelation 6.5-6

Famine is also prophesied by Jesus as one of the signs of the Second Coming and all these things which I’ve spoken of tonight are actually signs of the Second Coming of Jesus.

10 Then He said to them, “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. 11 And there will be great earthquakes in various places, and famines and pestilences; and there will be fearful sights and great signs from heaven. 12 But before all these things, they will lay their hands on you and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues and prisons. You will be brought before kings and rulers for My name’s sake. 13 But it will turn out for you as an occasion for testimony. 14 Therefore settle it in your hearts not to meditate beforehand on what you will answer; 15 for I will give you a mouth and wisdom which all your adversaries will not be able to contradict or resist. 16 You will be betrayed even by parents and brothers, relatives and friends; and they will put some of you to death. 17 And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake. 18 But not a hair of your head shall be lost. 19 By your patience possess your souls.

Luke 21.10-18

Most people don’t know that. Most Christians don’t know that, but they are signs. And it raises the question:

How long do we have?

Remember I talked earlier about the labour pains, about the image when the woman who goes into labour? When the process begins, it cannot be reversed. Labour pains can be very short or they can be quite prolonged.

We don’t know the time when Jesus will return. Also, the timing does depend upon the timing of the Rapture. This is another issue: Does the Rapture come before, in the middle, or at the end of the tribulation?

If it’s at the end of the tribulation then, we have at least seven years to go, or possibly more. If that’s the case, I guess that we should now be preparing for shortages, for a clampdown on freedom, for life in the underground church, and for persecution.

I don’t say that lightly. I’d say that we should be preparing for that if that is the case.

In fact, even if the Rapture takes place pre-tribulation, you should still be ready. Those things (famines, pestilences, earthquakes, persecution) might be on the agenda anyway because it’s already happening in at least a third of the world and the number of countries where it is happening is increasing.

If the Rapture happens pre-tribulation, it could happen at any time. I’ve written about that in the latest Light for the Last Days magazine. Which means that it could happen tonight, or it could happen at any time in the not too distant future.

Either way, what you need to do is to be ready. Be ready for the coming of the Lord.

Jesus said in Luke 21:

34 “But take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness, and cares of this life, and that Day come on you unexpectedly. 35 For it will come as a snare on all those who dwell on the face of the whole earth. 36 Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.”

Luke 21.34-36

Take heed to yourselves … be ready, don’t be weighed down with the cares of this life but be looking for the return of Jesus. No matter what your situation, whether it’s good or bad, believe in Jesus. You’ve got a glorious future.

If you don’t believe, now’s the day of salvation. Make sure that you do so that you do have a glorious future. Because, if you continue without Jesus, you’re facing a lost eternity and you’re facing the Great Tribulation.

Jesus spoke about ‘being counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass and to stand before the son of man.

That is one of the verses which actually does point to a pre-tribulation Rapture, that believers should be taken up before the worst of this tribulation comes and the snare which is the Great Tribulation.

But whatever the case, be ready for the coming of the Lord.

I just found a quote from a Jewish source, Rabbi Kanievsky says,

You don’t know that Messiah is standing at the door?’ 

Rabbi Kanievsky

There are Jewish people who also expect the coming of the Messiah.

Rabbi Amar went on to say,

All the great rabbis of this generation are saying that the Messiah is about to reveal himself. All the signs the prophets gave, all the signs predicted in the Gemara, the Mishnah, the Midrash, everything is taking place, one by one. All we need is to remain strong for a little bit longer.

Rabbi Amar

It is an interesting quote, especially as we have Jewish Believers in Jesus here and we live in the middle of a Jewish neighbourhood.

There are Jewish people who are looking for the coming of the Messiah. Unfortunately, they are not looking for the right Messiah because the Messiah has already come in the person of Yeshua.

And one of the things which we have to do is to tell Jewish people about the true Messiah who is Jesus, who’s the one who has come and is coming again. But, if they’re looking for the Messiah, at least they should be open to the idea that Messiah might be Yeshua.

Unfortunately, most Orthodox Jews don’t want to know about Yeshua being the Messiah, but He is! And I believe that we should be concerned and pray for Israel and for the Jewish people that they may have their eyes opened to the fact that the Messiah has come and is coming again in the person of Jesus the Messiah.

I just sent out the latest Light for Last Days to, I think, about 150 Jewish addresses including synagogues and Jewish news sources, to tell them that they should read the article I’ve got there about Israel because it’s all happening now and Jesus is coming.

It should arrive on their doorsteps either tomorrow or on Tuesday. So pray that some of them might read it. We have to tell people, Jews and gentiles, the truth that the Messiah is coming and to pray for Israel to get the truth about the right Messiah.

A lot of these things which are prophesied in the Bible do relate to Israel and the Jewish people and Yeshua Jesus said,

Stay dressed for action and keep your lamps burning, and be like men who are waiting for their master to come home from the wedding feast, so that they may open the door to him at once when he comes and knocks. …You also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.

Luke 12.35-40

This scripture does point me to the pre-tribulation Rapture view because, if you’ve gone through seven years of tribulation and it suddenly gets dark, and you see a light in the sky, then it wouldn’t be unexpected.

If the next thing that happens, if Jesus comes but you’re just sitting in Bridge Lane Chapel and suddenly you’re taken up and Jesus comes then, that would be unexpected. Or, if it happens when you’re traveling home on the Northern Line, that would be pretty unexpected.

Be ready

Therefore, whatever it is, be ready for the coming of the Lord! Be ready for the coming of the Lord! You do that by repenting of sin and believing that Jesus died for your sins, was buried and rose from the dead.

Looking to Him who’s coming again soon, I think all the things I’ve told you tonight and which I told you the previous week, and the week before are pointing you in the direction of the Second Coming of Jesus.

The fact that I can talk for one hour three Sundays in a row, tells you that there has to be something going on which ties Him with the Bible. Nobody has told me I’m talking nonsense. Yet, perhaps they will. However, basically, people recognize and unbelievers also recognize that there’s something going on which is a bit scary. But I understand it is also challenging to think about the things of God.

And I find even Jewish people who otherwise wouldn’t consider a conversation about Jesus, if you give them some of this material, they think ‘Yeah, that does sort of tally with what we’ve been told, and it tallies with what we’re expecting, and maybe, we should start looking into this person called Yeshua.’

A lot of young people today, they’re disregarding God and thinking it has nothing to do with them, but once you confront them with this, they recognize ‘Yes, it has got something to do with me; this is my future, maybe I don’t have a very long future. So maybe I get to get right with God and believe the Gospel‘.

Whether you’re young or old, or Jewish or Gentile, wherever you come from, everybody needs Jesus. He’s the one way of Salvation. He has come, He’s coming again soon and all these things I’ve told you about were written in the Bible 2,000, sometimes more, 2,500 years ago in the Old Testament or even further back. They’re written there, and they’re written there for us so that we can be ready for the coming of the Lord.

So, believe in the Lord Jesus Christ! Repent, believe the Gospel, and look up when you see these things happening, don’t despair because Jesus is coming and He’s going to sort it out. Praise the Lord!

Let’s just have a word of prayer then I’ll hand that to Andy.

Lord, we thank you for your Word. We thank you for the truth of your Word. We thank you that even though we see a lot of bad things happening, there is a great hope in Jesus Christ. And we pray you’ll make us alert to the things which are happening and make us ready for your coming whether it’s before or at the end of the tribulation.

In one sense, it doesn’t matter, as long as we’re ready to meet with you. But let’s all be ready to meet with Jesus, because you are the only hope. We could die tonight just of natural causes so we must be ready to meet with you because of that. And there’s only one way we can be saved as you said, ‘I’m the way the truth and the life, and no one comes to the Father except by Me‘.

So, believe in Jesus and trust in Him and have eternal life!
