What You Can Expect in 2012

What You Can Expect in 2012

In the above article, Gary Kah lays out the developments underway and the things that you can expect to see take place in 2012. Gary has access to a world most of us cannot get into. 2012 is going to be a significant time of change for the formation of the fourth beast in Dan. 7:7, 19 and of the harlot that rides atop that beast (Rev. 17:4-6).

Have you made provision to be counted among Yahweh's elect? (Rom. 10:9, 10, 13)

On Declaring the Return/Sounding the Alarm!

Christianity in America has for so long enjoyed a dominant/favored status among the population and culture, and a favored relationship with the U.S. government. Because Christianity has been so widespread, and for years, almost considered one with American culture, the large majorities of those in American churches attended church, took part in church programs and classes, and were satisfied with their Christianity. If someone went out to the streets to witness to others in the streets, and proclaiming God’s word, or traded their well-paying job to go serve others and be involved in a non-profit ministry, you were seen as a radical flame or a good, but unusual believer on the extremities of the faith. Persecution came to be seen as something that occurred in other parts of the world, but not America. Pretty soon, we came to understand that to be born in America, was to be born Christian.

But the question is, is that Biblical? Is that the Biblical picture we see of Christianity? The apostle Peter tells us that for “everyone who wants to live godly in Christ Jesus will be persecuted” (2 Tim. 3:12). There’s no ifs ands or buts about it. Peter, inspired by the Spirit of Christ Jesus Himself, tells us that we will be persecuted if we seek to follow Christ.

This should not surprise us. Why? Because the Bible tells us that man in his natural, sinful state, is an enemy to God and his ways, that he is hostile to God (Rom 5:10, 8:7). So of course he is going to be hostile to those who have the Spirit of God in them (Rom 8:14). The Bible also tells us that Satan is the spirit that is at work in the sons of disobedience (Eph. 2:2), and that he is in control of the world system in which we live (1 John 5:19). So by the very fact that we have the Spirit of the living God in us, enrages him. But he can do nothing to us except tempt us, and take what areas of our life we allow him to have through our indifference or sin. For Jesus, the Son of the living God, gave his followers authority over the evil one and every unclean (i.e. unholy, demon) spirit (Matt. 10:1).

The Bible does not give a rosy picture of life for the believer, especially for the generation living before Christ returns. Paul, writing to Timothy, says, “But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come. For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; avoid such men as these.” 2 Tim.3:1-5

If you have been paying attention, this describes to a ‘T’ the times that we are living in. Why would the Lord have Paul include this, unless He wanted His followers to know it? Just as the Jews were set apart from the nations of the world, so His people in the church age are set apart by the fruits of the Spirit (Gal. 5:22-23), but the characteristics listed in Gal. 5:19-21 and in 2 Tim. 3:1-5 are the marks of those who do not know Christ as their God and Savior.

The LORD also tells His people of events that he has declared from long ago, that will mark the last times. And often the prophets of God were persecuted when they declared God’s word. They were seen as ‘troublers’ or ‘gloom and doom’ prophets, but they had to be obedient to God’s word. The prophet Amos had this to say: Amos 5:18 18 Alas, you who are longing for the day of the LORD, For what purpose will the day of the LORD be to you? It will be darkness and not light;

The prophet Joel records: Joel 2:1-2 For the day of the LORD is coming; Surely it is near, 2 A day of darkness and gloom, A day of clouds and thick darkness. As the dawn is spread over the mountains, So there is a great and mighty people; There has never been anything like it, Nor will there be again after it To the years of many generations.

Jesus tells his followers of events to take place in the world before His return and the close of the age. All these events are happening around us. The Jews were brought back to Israel in fulfillment of the prophecies given in Ezekiel 36 and 37, God has moved Egyptian against Egyptian according to His word in Isaiah 19, the nations are gathering against Israel for war as described in Psalm 83, Magog, Persia and the other Muslim nations are aligning politically and arming themselves for the Battle of Magog in Ezekiel 38. Politically, the governments are moving themselves together, creating unions to bring about the final, one-world union prophesied in Daniel 7:7, 19ff.

The LORD promised the Jews through Moses, before first entering the Promised Land, that He was going to exile them among the nations for their disobedience to His covenant in the Torah (Deut. 30:1). This happened, and they were scattered to the ends of the earth for almost two thousand years. The apostle Peter tells us in 2 Ptr. 3:8 that “a thousand years a like a day to the Lord.” The LORD spoke in Hosea: Hosea 6:2 2 "He will revive us after two days; He will raise us up on the third day, That we may live before Him.

The prophet Amos said it well: Amos 3:8 8 A lion has roared! Who will not fear? The Lord GOD has spoken! Who can but prophesy? When we see and discern these things, who can but preach? What is the goal of the Christian faith, if not the realization of Biblical Judaism, the reigning on earth of God’s Messiah (Zech 14:9; Dan. 7:14, 27).

In preaching and proclaiming that all these events are taking place is not a gloom and doom mindset. These are events that the LORD told us must take place before His coming. We believe that God is good, and that everything that He does is good. So many of us grew up in the era (and in fact, live in a continuation of it) where we are told, “God has a wonderful plan for your life!” Ultimately, if you’re elect, God’ does have a wonderful plan for your life, to live and reign with the Messiah, but in the meantime, that plan means persecution on this side, and possibly death. What did the apostle Paul say about this? “That I may know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death; in order that I may attain to the resurrection from the dead.” (Phil. 3:10-11).

“Rejoice in the LORD always, I will say it again, rejoice!” Phil. 3:1

“And we know that in all things, God works for the good of those that love him, who are called according to His purpose.” Rom. 8:28

“He who testifies to these things says, ‘Yes, I am coming quickly.’ Amen. Come Lord Jesus” (Rev. 22:20).

Visit of the Magi

This is a lesson I made up for the youth.  The reason the Magi, these "king-makers" came to worship and honor the King of kings, is because they were familiar with the writings of the Hebrew prophets via the exiled Jews living in Babylon.  It seems like there is so often a disdain by a certain segment of those even in the Church, of "end-time prophecies"!  These same prophecies brought the Magi to worship the arrival of Earth's true King.  And these prophecies, words of God, only a portion were fulfilled in the first coming of Mashiach (Messiah).  As we celebrate the birth of Christ (Messiah) this year, and so much fear is in the air about the future, let us remember and strive to study the word of God, as the remainder of these prophecies are being fulfilled in our very day.

Why did the Wise men travel to visit Jesus?                      

What scripture did they quote to tell about Jesus being born? (Mich 5:2; Ezek. 34:23)

So these guys knew the Hebrew prophets! How? Remember, the Jews were punished by God and taken captive by the Chaldeans into Babylon. These wise men or magi were from that area.

Did you know other prophesies were made about the coming Messiah? Because those were pretty specific about his birth place and life.

We looked at one this morning in the sermon. Isaiah 9:1-7; - ruler of Israel, also mighty God (El Gibbor)

Isaiah 7:14- ‘maiden’ (almah) – premarried girl, i.e., a virgin - virgin birth

Genesis 49:18 – “I wait for your ‘Yeshua’ O LORD!”

Ps. 22:14-18 – Foretells crucifixion 700 years before it was known to the Jews

Isaiah 53:3-5 – rejected by man, a man of sorrows, who bore our sin (iniquities).

So why were the wise men wise men?

If all religions lead to the same God, why did they take a three month trek through the desert fighting sandstorms, snakes, scorpions, lions and heat to find Jesus?

Couldn’t they be fine worshipping one of the gods of their homeland?

Why is Jesus the only way to be ‘saved’? Acts 4:12; John 3:16-18; John 14:6

Is The Fourth Beast Emerging?

Daniel 7:7 7 "After this I kept looking in the night visions, and behold, a fourth beast, dreadful and terrifying and extremely strong; and it had large iron teeth. It devoured and crushed and trampled down the remainder with its feet; and it was different from all the beasts that were before it, and it had ten horns.

This beast (or kingdom) is practically in place now. Because the U.S. has been such an economic giant historically, it had to be taken out of the way, and that's what this whole sub-prime mortgage crash and corruption with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac has been about, the inflation and devaluation of American currency. Because America runs on a credit system that it was bound to crash at some point. And they've been working for that day, not conspiratorially, but openly. And the latest development is the passing of the National Defense Authorization Act, by which the government can arrest and detain any American citizen they deem a 'terrorist' and hold them in detention indefinitely.

The Bible declares hard times for the end days... and we are upon them. Begin storing up food to carry you through a couple of weeks and water to drink. An informative, conservative, Biblical site that is a good resource in understanding all that has been and is going on, is

The important thing for us as believers to remember is that God is in control and accomplishing His will for humanity and all creation.

And those who have been born again (Jn. 1:12, spiritually made alive to God) through faith in Christ alone, and no other god or Deity or system to which they have made vows and oaths. Only those who follow Christ alone by faith. 2 Corinthians 5:21 21 He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

*An important update: The prophecies of the pope are culminating with the 112th pope.  It appears he is readying to come into power this year (2012) in fulfillment of St. Malacy's prophecy, and in conjunction of many world religions which HAVE set the date for this new world order to occur in 2012!  For more info on this incredible topic, go to or see

Criticism of Islam Could Soon be a Crime in America

Criticism of Islam Could Soon be a Crime in America

Americans have lost their freedoms, and more is on the way. The next world government to take control will devour with its teeth, and trample the rest with its feet (Dan. 7:7).

Commentary on Aaron Russo video

 I have written a response to the interview with Aaron Russo, and his insight into 9/11, government corruption, RFID chipping, and the formation of the one world government, found here:

This is a response to the Aaron Russo video.  I think he's a got a lot of good info on there, but I also see that he does not have a Biblical approach, and he's missing the overall endtime scenario. I do think there is a group of American/European elites who are controlling and moving things together under their control into a global union, or government. But I also see Islam playing a part in it to, trying to accomplish a global Caliphate and worldwide Islam under sharia law. The church of Rome, we also see pushing for an authoritative centralized world bank and one-world religion. I think the evil one has several fronts that he's working from, not just one, to bring about his end time regime.
It seems like the "radical" or orthodox Muslim sects are largely going to be wiped out through the battles with Israel (Ps. 83; Isa. 17:1; Ezek. 38). This is going to leave a predominately 'moderate' Muslim populace in the world, and I know the pope has been in communication with Muslim leaders, seeking to bring everyone together in "one faith." It may be completely true that 9/11 was set up by the controlling parties or not... I definitely think that we have to keep our eyes on the bigger scenario. I know in Dan. 11:40-45, it speaks of the one-world king having to fight wars, with the king of the south and others. I expect, with the regional countries there being primarily Islamic, even under the global rule of Antichrist, there will still be some Muslim infighting till the end.
The evil one has to be recognized on all fronts where he is working, and Islam is set up as a photo negative of Christianity for the last days, so I'm pretty sure that it will play a massive role in the coming deception of the world-teacher and his prophet.

Worldview Weekend - Rise of Antichrist and who's laying the foundation for his Arrival

Brannon Howse has an excellent interview with Jimmy DeYoung about the rise of the coming Antichrist and who are laying the foundation for his coming.  The person mentioned makes a lot of sense and is very well in the situatoin where he might be able to step into that role.  Time will tell.
