As readers of this site may or may not have already read, international geopolitical tensions between the United States along with the rest of the NATO nations and Russia have escalated quite dramatically in more recent days. More specifically, earlier this month. As readers of this site may also be aware in matters of bible prophecy fulfillment, it has been pointed out in a previous article that there is a hidden future prophecy found in the book of 2 Kings chapter 2 and its description of a historical event that witnessed the disappearance, or “rapture,” of the prophet Elijah that was accompanied with the theme of two she-bears, which seems to be a prophetic template of what will happen in our immediate future today (more on that later in this article). In short, for those new Christians (or those who may not be) who may not be aware, prophecy indicates that all those who are “born again” in Christ will escape a coming dreadful and dark time of seven years of judgment called the Tribulation Period that will strike the earth. Those outside of christ will be left behind on Earth to experience this horrific and dreadful period of time. Like Elijah, those who are “in Christ,” or “born again” as a part of the corporate body of Christ will disappear in our own mass rapture event, which will be accompanied with the emergence of a very pronounced bear theme …
“For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord” (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17).
“Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed” (1 Corinthians 15:51-52) (see also here, here and here).
It is the theme of this emerging “bear” narrative that I wish to point out in global affairs now taking place on the world stage. NATO has moved 28,000 troops, 18 warships, and shiploads of M1 Abrams Tanks and tons of Ammunition to Europe to use once the war get started between Russia and Ukraine (see HERE). Russian tanks appear to be moving through the streets of Grodno, Belarus to the borders of Poland and Lithuania to engage NATO forces once war breaks out with Ukraine (see HERE). The media is not reporting the fact that the USA ran nuclear attack drills against Russia via B-52’s we sent over the North Pole earlier this week (see HERE). In response to the military build-up, Russia publicly announced it would use its military to defend the people of Luhansk and Donetsk. In response to that announcement, NATO began military exercises in and around Ukraine, sending 18 warships into the Black Sea, and 28,000 troops to countries around Ukraine. Russia then sent two full railway echelons of troops and armor to the Russian Border near Ukraine, and sent Russian tanks and troops (with permission) through nearby Belarus, to the borders of Lithuania and of Poland, to act as a Gauntlet to prevent NATO from entering any war that breaks out with Ukraine.
Then, the heat seems to have been turned up a few more intense notches when on March 5, Syrian Arab Army and Russian forces inside Syria fired Tochka Ballistic missiles at Oil Storage Tank Facilities being occupied and used by the United States, Turkey and Israel. Giant explosions leveled most of the storage tank farms, rendering it impossible for the US, Turkey or Israel to continue taking Syrian oil, which is something that has been going on for years while the US, run by the globalists, was allegedly “fighting ISIS.” Video below shows missile strikes hitting the oil storage facilities.
Images that came out of Syria allegedly provide proof that the missiles used were Russian Tochka missiles, also known in NATO circles as the SS-21. The Russian missiles not only struck oil storage tank farms, they also went after the oil smuggling tanker trucks as well. Entire parking areas filled with hundreds of smuggler tanker trucks were hit and destroyed.
Then, on Sunday, March 14, Russia and Syria again attacked U.S. and Israeli globalist oil smuggling operations for the second time, including the trucks. Below, oil smuggler tractor trailers at the al-Hamran crossing between Syrian Defense Forces (US Proxies) and Turkish-held areas of Syria were set ablaze after the missile strikes. Video and pictures later emerged from the attacks (seen below).
Then, just one day later, reports surfaced that for about two weeks, Ukraine was massing troops and armor, such as tanks, artillery and other armor into the area near Luhansk and Donetsk along with heavy troop arrivals just 400 yards at the breakaway Oblasts (states) of Luhansk and Donetsk. Troops also massed at Crimea. For readers of this site who have read the article concerning the prophetic significance of the year 2020 and the 400 year prophetic cycle may understand why it is a rather interesting observation to me that we have the amassing of these troops at just 400 yards (make of that what you will – may be something, may be nothing). For more on this, see the article here. Ukraine began massing tanks, troops and artillery on the northern border of Russian Crimea (photo below).
Later, five (5) transport aircraft of the Qatar Air Force, the closest ally and “wallet” of Erdogan’s Turkey, landed in Kiev, Ukraine over the next 24 hours. It looks like they may have been transporting something serious and in the fastest possible manner. Likely weapons systems.
For those who may not be aware, Crimea voted to leave Ukraine and return to Russia. The West claimed the vote was rigged, but the Russian Duma (Congress) accepted the return of Crimea via legislation. Crimea is once again Russian territory. If Ukraine and/or NATO try to forcibly take Crimea back for Ukraine, it will mean direct war with Russia.
Moreover, if Ukraine tries to forcibly reclaim Luhansk and Donetsk, it will directly threaten the Russian border and Russia may intervene there too. Either way, pieces have been moved into place, and by all that’s logical, a major conflict appears about ready to erupt in eastern Europe.
US and British military resources are also in the area and have been actively flying inside Ukraine, grabbing electronic intelligence. The US and UK are heavily involved, and such will be the case if actual war breaks out. Also, US military convoys are bringing troops, weapons, tanks, artillery and more BACK INTO SYRIA since Joe Biden became President, thus bringing renewed attention to the upcoming prophecy of the destruction of Damascus (see here and here).
Fast forward to March 26 of this year (2021) – For the first time in recorded history, surreal video shows three (3) nuclear powered Ballistic Missile Russian submarines from the Russian navy suddenly surfacing through the Arctic ice.
It is interesting that this suddenly happened in light of the fact that, just last week, the US Army published a new strategic policy document entitled Regaining Arctic Dominance, which laid out a plan to thwart Russian dominance in the far north, where it’s heavily invested given that it’s the major world power that lies geographically closest …
“The Arctic has the potential to become a contested space where United States’ great power rivals, Russia and China, seek to use military and economic power to gain and maintain access to the region at the expense of US interests. US National Security Strategy highlights the Arctic as a corridor for expanded strategic great power competition between two regions – the Indo-Pacific and Europe,” the Army strategy document said.
Later that day, in the largest incursion yet reported by the Island of Taiwan’s defense ministry, China apparently sent twenty (20) warplanes into Taiwan airspace after Russia opened its nuclear missile hatches on its Arctic submarines. By all intents and purposes, it appears that Russia and China are acting together against NATO forces led by the United States. The move marked a dramatic escalation of tension across the Taiwan Strait, and came soon after the US and Taiwan signed a memorandum of understanding to boost cooperation between their coastguards.
This situation could rapidly escalate to direct warfare, inside Syria, between the US and Russia, with a second front opened against Russia by Europe, with warfare in Ukraine on the continent of Europe.” Meanwhile, Britain’s military has officially announced that it will intensify activities against the new threat of Russia (see here). The U.S. is now making a large military hardware delivery to Ukrain’s army in defiance of Russia (see here). It is all an indicator of just how serious things are getting out in the real world.
The Bear Theme Is Emerging – The Rapture Draws Near
As most may be aware, the national emblem of Russia is the bear. I think by now it is clear and safe to say that the Russia conflict with the West, particularly led by the United States of America, is not going anywhere. It seems inevitable at this point that the world is destined for this clash. It’s been “baked in the prophetic cake.” An important biblical concept to understand, as it relates to the past repeating itself in the future, is found in the Old Testament book of Ecclesiastes and its declaration of repeating prophetic cycles …
“The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun. Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us”(Ecclesiastes 1:9-10).
“That which hath been is now; and that which is to be hath already been; and God requireth that which is past” (Ecclesiastes 3:15).
What is occurring today between Russia and America with its allied NATO forces seems to be painting a very clear picture of the bear theme that accompanied Elijah’s rapture into Heaven (2 Kings 2) in the original vineyard – ancient Israel (Isaiah 5:1-7). It is a theme, as Ecclesiastes 1 and 9 make clear, will repeat itself. Important to note is the fact that in the Elijah narrative, Elijah first disappeared “BEFORE,” not after, the two bears struck at the young men who were mocking Elisha, who was walking with Elijah when he disappeared. This paints a picture of what the future rapture of the body of “born again” believers will be like. The world will witness the rise of the bear theme once again to indicate to us all that the rapture is drawing ever closer and that judgment is set to strike the mocking, anti-Christian world. We see this sign in spades at this moment in time … and it is only intensifying.
If there be any doubt that this prophetic signalling is what we are seeing emerging today with the bear theme, I would first invite you to take note of a dramatic prophecy that Jesus gave in Matthew 21 concerning the vineyard and how that he would temporarily take the kingdom of God from Israel (the original vineyard of Isaiah 5:1-7) and give it to another nation that would bring forth fruits in its season. As discussed in another article here, a very strong case with solid, rock hard evidence was made that the United States of America was either the direct fulfillment of that prophecy or was very tightly connected to it – thus making it the modern-day vineyard that Israel was originally. Thus, by divine decree, America was patterned after ancient Israel, including in its prophetic themes and characteristics. Also, what happened in ancient Israel can be expected to occur in America to some extent. With that thought in the forefront of your mind, now take notice of what the very pronounced theme is in chapter 1 of 2 Kings, just one chapter before the rapture of Elijah in chapter 2. This chapter reveals a heavy significance of the number 50 …
“Then Moab rebelled against Israel after the death of Ahab. And Ahaziah fell down through a lattice in his upper chamber that was in Samaria, and was sick: and he sent messengers, and said unto them, Go, enquire of Baalzebub the god of Ekron whether I shall recover of this disease. But the angel of the Lord said to Elijah the Tishbite, Arise, go up to meet the messengers of the king of Samaria, and say unto them, Is it not because there is not a God in Israel, that ye go to enquire of Baalzebub the god of Ekron? Now therefore thus saith the Lord, Thou shalt not come down from that bed on which thou art gone up, but shalt surely die. And Elijah departed. And when the messengers turned back unto him, he said unto them, Why are ye now turned back? And they said unto him, There came a man up to meet us, and said unto us, Go, turn again unto the king that sent you, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord, Is it not because there is not a God in Israel, that thou sendest to enquire of Baalzebub the god of Ekron? therefore thou shalt not come down from that bed on which thou art gone up, but shalt surely die. And he said unto them, What manner of man was he which came up to meet you, and told you these words? And they answered him, He was an hairy man, and girt with a girdle of leather about his loins. And he said, It is Elijah the Tishbite. Then the king sent unto him a captain of fifty with his fifty. And he went up to him: and, behold, he sat on the top of an hill. And he spake unto him, Thou man of God, the king hath said, Come down. And Elijah answered and said to the captain of fifty, If I be a man of God, then let fire come down from heaven, and consume thee and thy fifty. And there came down fire from heaven, and consumed him and his fifty. Again also he sent unto him another captain of fifty with his fifty. And he answered and said unto him, O man of God, thus hath the king said, Come down quickly. And Elijah answered and said unto them, If I be a man of God, let fire come down from heaven, and consume thee and thy fifty. And the fire of God came down from heaven, and consumed him and his fifty. And he sent again a captain of the third fifty with his fifty. And the third captain of fifty went up, and came and fell on his knees before Elijah, and besought him, and said unto him, O man of God, I pray thee, let my life, and the life of these fifty thy servants, be precious in thy sight. Behold, there came fire down from heaven, and burnt up the two captains of the former fifties with their fifties: therefore let my life now be precious in thy sight. And the angel of the Lord said unto Elijah, Go down with him: be not afraid of him. And he arose, and went down with him unto the king. And he said unto him, Thus saith the Lord, Forasmuch as thou hast sent messengers to enquire of Baalzebub the god of Ekron, is it not because there is no God in Israel to enquire of his word? therefore thou shalt not come down off that bed on which thou art gone up, but shalt surely die. So he died according to the word of the Lord which Elijah had spoken. And Jehoram reigned in his stead in the second year of Jehoram the son of Jehoshaphat king of Judah; because he had no son. Now the rest of the acts of Ahaziah which he did, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel?
At this point, remembering that America’s patterns as the vineyard are closely connected to ancient Israel’s patterns, how many states do we see in America’s union? Congratulations, you have now won a package of fifty (50) stale, bear-shaped chocolate chip cookies for your correct answer (I’ll send it off to you when I get around to it). There are fifty (50) states in America’s union. The theme of the number fifty (50) emerges just before Elijah’s bear-themed rapture into Heaven, just as that same bear theme has arisen in our day in a union of fifty (50) states indicating our very soon departure (rapture) from the earth. Just as the bears struck in the ancient original vineyard of Israel, so too do we now see the bear theme, that is closely connected to the modern-day vineyard of America, emerging, thus indicating a physical strike upon the modern vineyard after the church’s departure. As we see this ominous theme emerging now, it gives us some undeniable signs that the time is at hand. These two themes lend some formidable and powerful credence to the idea that this bear occurrence/bear theme in the story of Elijah’s disappearance is a prophecy. Not only is it a prophecy, but it is a rapture prophecy intended for our day.
In closing, also take note of the theme of the number three (3). Three captains of fifty are mentioned in this story. It is here we should take note that Jesus arose on the morning of the third day, which is a template for the timing of his return for the body of born again believers after the second day according to a prophecy found in the book of Hosea …
“Come, and let us return unto the Lord: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up. After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight” (Hosea 6:1-2).
We are currently looking at, and residing in, the morning hours of the third day in which “he will revive us,” speaking of that period of time wherein the 1,000 year millennial reign of Christ shall take hold of the earth. We can now see the rays of the sun coming up over the horizon on this “third day” that Hosea speaks of, especially given the prophetic hint-dropping that we have been witnessing taking place for the past several years just since the year 2017 and the “Trump-Pence” administration, among other reasons (Trumpet) = the Bible’s description of the rapture). Much of this hint dropping can be seen in the prophetic updates section in the aforementioned Bear Rapture article (here). See also Gary’s article at the Unsealed website here.
It is incredible to say the least that all of these signs are emerging right at the time that America, the prophetic vineyard, has reached the all-important 400 year biblical prophetic cycle written about in a previous article titled AMERICA THE VINEYARD AND THE YEAR 2020: THE 400 YEAR PROPHETIC CYCLE. None of this is by accident. The God of the universe is warning the world that the time for repentance (receiving Christ) is rapidly drawing to a close. Ladies and Gentleman, as you’ve probably noticed, darkness is quickly descending upon the world. Soon, God is going to close the door to the proverbial Ark in this day just as he did so literally in Noah’s day before the flood destroyed the earth. It is time to get on board the Ark before it is too late (see the section further below titled “GOD’S REQUIREMENT FOR YOUR INCLUSION IN THE RAPTURE AND ESCAPE FROM THE COMING WRATH.”
BEAR RAPTURE PROPHECY ALERT UPDATE 1:
MASSIVE ADDITIONAL RUSSIAN ARMOR TRAINS GOING INTO CRIMEA
MARCH 30, 2021
According to intelligence sources associated with Hal Turner, his website is reporting that a massive amount of Russian Armor (Tanks, APC’s, self-propelled artillery) arrived in Crimea via train today, which is in addition to the major forces that have already moved into Crimea (see here) . Video from the Crimea Bridge over the Kerch Strait between Russia and Ukraine shows the train.
Video was taken by a motorist crossing the Crimea Bridge between mainland Russia and the Crimea peninsula. “Countries do not move this amount of heavy armor unless and until they know they’re actually going to war. It’s just not done,” says Turner.
BEAR RAPTURE PROPHECY ALERT UPDATE 2:
“THREE“ RUSSIAN NUCLEAR ICBMs BROUGHT OUT OF STORAGE FACILITY
MARCH 31, 2021
According to intelligence sources associated with Hal Turner, his website is reporting that three Russian Nuclear ICBMs have been removed from their storage facilities for purposes of the training of Russia’s forces and what they are calling a “comprehensive control check of the Omsk missile association” (see here). An official statement has apparently been made by the Russian Ministry of Defense about this highly significant move:
“The Strategic Missile Forces began a comprehensive control check of the Omsk missile association.
In accordance with the training plan for the Strategic Missile Forces, the Strategic Missile Forces command commission is conducting a comprehensive control check of the Omsk missile formation.
Among the main objectives of the audit is to assess the real state of affairs and the level of combat readiness of the formation, as well as the quality of the work of the leadership in organizing the fulfillment of the tasks set for the academic year.
The Commission of the Strategic Missile Forces command will inspect the state of combat training, as well as check the coherence of the actions of the military personnel in the performance of missions as intended.
In the course of the check, a special place will be taken by the command-staff, conducted under the personal leadership of the commander of the Strategic Missile Forces, Colonel-General Sergei Karakaev, with the Barnaul missile formation.
During the exercise, at a qualitatively new level, the issues of camouflaging the Yars mobile ground-based missile systems will be worked out, as well as countering modern and promising air reconnaissance means in cooperation with formations and units of the Central Military District.
The main goal of the exercise is to improve the practical skills of the command and control officers of the missile formation and military units during the preparation and conduct of hostilities, the organization and implementation of all types of support.
In total, more than 3 thousand servicemen and about 300 pieces of equipment are involved in the exercise.
Department of Information and Mass Communications of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation
“Countries don’t take LIVE nuclear missiles out of their storage for drills” said Turner. In the latter part of the body of this writing, you may recall that in the story of the captains of fifty (50) of 2 Kings 2:1 (one chapter before the rapture chapter), there are a total of three (3) captains of fifty (50). The number of missiles being released from their storage facilities by the Russian military are a total of three (3). Whether this is prophetically significant or not is up for you to decide, but it should probably cause us to take notice as observers of biblical prophecy and the intricacies involved.
These developments may or may not lead to immediate and impending conflict. Cooler heads may prevail, but ultimately, the Luciferian globalists are in charge and since they are accelerating their plans for the New World Order since the beginning of the year 2020, it would seem that they are pushing the NWO accelerator pedal closer to the floor. This would include their plans for global depopulation as revealed on the Georgia Guide Stones.
(See also the documentary titled “DARK CLOUDS OVER ELBERTON” in the side bar of this site further up this page).
Further still, we know that the God of the Bible is ultimately in control of the Luciferian Globalists and any time frame that they have in mind for their plans. If it is not yet the specified time in the courts of Heaven for this to occur, then it will be for an unspecified later time. But clearly, the bear theme is rising. What has been prophesied and foretold in the Divinely inspired text we know as the Bible will eventually occur on the set schedule. This may well be the time that they, thus the Lord, have planned for to initiate what many call World War 3. Many students of Bible prophecy associate an impending war between Russia and the West with the prophecy of the Gog/Magog war found in Ezekiel 38 & 39 …
“And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the LORD” (Ezekiel 39:6).
Prophecy expositor Bill Salus would contend that there are a set of pre-wars prior to the Russia Gog/Magog military exchange between the Western powers and Russia (see Bill Salus interviews in the side bar of this site further above). Some disagree.
BEAR RAPTURE PROPHECY ALERT UPDATE 3:
CRIMEAN BRIDGE NOW CLOSED
APRIL 1, 2021
Since the aforementioned attacks of Russian missiles upon the oil operations of the United States, Israel and Turkey in Syria, NATO forces began moving armor in Ukraine, toward Russia. One source explicitly stated it appeared to him to be 35,000 troops and 300 tanks. Scattered reports came in claiming there was heavy gunfire heard along the line of contact. Yesterday (March 31), the spokesman of Luhansk revealed that the Ukrainians have placed at least 100 mines in the area. It has been reportedly confirmed that Russia has now sent the 56th Airborne Brigade to Crimea (see here). America has moved warships into the Black Sea just days ago (see here).
Now, the Crimean Bridge has been closed and declared a “military zone” by Russia.
Is war at the doorstep of Eastern Europe? Is NATO planning an attack upon Russia? Things are developing fast. As previously noted, this may or may not lead to the prophecy of the “bear rapture.” NATO may or may not yet get involved. No one knows where this is immediately going. But those of us who watch prophetic developments on the world stage as outlined in the Bible that indicate the onset of the Biblical Tribulation Period preceded by the rapture of the true Church, it merits close watching. This prophecy may occur at a later time. This may not yet be it, but as Jesus commanded all of us to do, we keep watching and warning the lost who are outside of Christ that time is running out. If this particular situation does not lead to the fulfillment of this prophecy right here and right now this year, that only means we have just a little more time to reach and warn the lost of what is coming. Rest assured that eventually, it will come. Of that, let there be no doubt …
“We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost” (2 Peter 1:19-21).
BEAR RAPTURE PROPHECY ALERT UPDATE 4:
UKRAINE OPENS ITS AIR SPACE TO NATO AIRCRAFT AMID RECENT UPTICK IN RUSSIAN FLIGHTS NEAR ALASKA AND RUSSIAN SUBMARINE ACTIVITY IN THE ARCTIC
APRIL 5, 2021
Multiple sources are now reporting that Kiev, Ukraine has opened its airspace to NATO aircraft amid Russian military planes flying near the NATO alliance airspace. NATO scrambled jets 10 times Monday (March 4) to intercept them. Although this happens often, Monday’s occurrence saw an unusually high number of Russia’s aircraft near NATO airspace. Fighters intercepted six groups of Russian military aircraft in less than six hours, NATO said. Recently, the NORAD commander, US Air Force Gen. Glen VanHerck, told Congress that “Russia continues to conduct frequent military operations in the approaches to North America.” The general added that last year, “NORAD responded to more Russian military flights off the coast of Alaska than we’ve seen in any year since the end of the Cold War.” These flights involved heavy bombers, anti-submarine aircraft, and intelligence assets …
“Russia presents a persistent, proximate threat to the United States and Canada and remains the most acute challenge to our homeland defense mission,” VanHerck said in his testimony.
The same day, NORAD identified and tracked a Russian maritime patrol aircraft operating near Alaska (see here). As of today, multiple sources are reporting a newly released satellite image showing that a huge Russian military build-up is taking place on the country’s Arctic coastline, together with underground storage facilities likely for the Poseidon and other new high-tech weapons. The Russian hardware in the High North area includes bombers and MiG31BM jets, and new radar systems close to the coast of Alaska.
The Russian build-up has been matched by NATO and US troop and equipment movements. American B-1 Lancer bombers stationed in Norway’s Ørland air base have recently completed missions in the eastern Barents Sea, for example. The US military’s stealth Seawolf submarine was acknowledged by US officials in August as being in the area (source). As many have said numerous times, images and information do not get released unless the powers that be want it released. This is likely an example of the Luciferian globalist elite building up and showing us the narrative of what they are going to do before they do it. The state Department issued a statement through a senior official saying …
“There’s clearly a military challenge from the Russians in the Arctic,” including their refitting of old Cold War bases and build-up of new facilities on the Kola Peninsula near the city of Murmansk. “That has implications for the United States and its allies, not least because it creates the capacity to project power up to the North Atlantic,” the official said.
Again, these weapons systems are close to the coast of alaska. For those already aware from reading a previous article concerning this prophecy, it is my belief based upon the 2 Kings 2 narrative and some peculiar recent prophetic signs that the bear attack on America will occur specifically in Alaska after the Church has been raptured. The bears in 2 Kings 2 came from the woods as Alaska can be considered a heavily wooded state. This fact, in unison with the recent prophetic signs covered in the “Prophetic Update 8” section of the first “bear rapture article,” the Lord is seemingly giving us a clue to some of the specifics of this rapture bear strike prophecy. Over and over again, we see the current Russia/NATO tensions taking place near Alaska, as they have been in years past. Monday, we have seen it again.
I would also consider it very significant that the recent visit to Alaska by Secretary of State Antony “Blinken” and national security adviser Jake Sullivan to host the China-Taiwan issue to be very prophetically telling. As those of us who are up to speed on prophetic matters know, the rapture of the Church will take place in the
Antony Blinken “blink” of an eye according to (1 Cor. 15:52). With “Blinken’s” highly important visit to Alaska at this particular and prophetically important time, we seem to be the recipients of some Providentially arranged significant hint-dropping that is demonstrating a connection between the rapture and the state of Alaska as an important piece in the bear strike rapture puzzle.
Now, we have Ukraine, who is very friendly and allied to NATO (although not yet a part of NATO) opening its airspace to NATO warplanes, thus heightening the Russia/NATO tensions. The prophetic bear theme rise continues apace. Stay tuned, it’s getting interesting.
April 9, 2021: Sources are now reporting that the Ukraine army has announced that there will be no offensive against pro-Russian separatists. By all indications, it appears as though war has been averted … for now. Meanwhile, it appears that the bear theme of the rapture via Russia and the U.S. will be given more time to continue to intensify on the world stage, eventually leading to the rapture. If it’s one thing that this entire development between the West and Russia should tell us is that we are getting very close to the sound of the heavenly trumpet that will see the body of Christ vanish from the face of the earth. It should tell us that the globalists intend to keep the flames of discord burning between the West and Russia. Russia is not going to just suddenly withdraw their military build-up from the Arctic. NATO isn’t suddenly going to stop surrounding Russia as has been taking place over the years. Clearly, there is an intention to eventually set fire to the kindling so-to-speak.
Important to keep in mind is that, using the 2 Kings 2 narrative of the bear themed rapture of Elijah, the church will not first see the bear strike happen. What we are to look for is the growth of intensity of the bear theme before the strike occurs, thus an indicator of the Church’s disappearance. We are witnessing exactly that.
GOD’S REQUIREMENT FOR YOUR INCLUSION IN THE RAPTURE AND ESCAPE FROM THE COMING WRATH
The demonstrably divinely inspired text that we call the Bible promises a coming horrendous seven-year Tribulation period of judgment upon Earth for all of mankind, no matter what your religion, belief or creed is, and even to those who don’t believe anything spiritual at all. We can now clearly see the signs of this approaching nightmare. However, as we’ve already seen, this same divinely inspired text that we call the Bible promises a dramatic escape from off the face of the earth before this horrendous time of judgment only to a certain category of people.
Put simply, an event is coming that will be so stupendous that it strains the mind to contemplate such an event happening. It is an event that will see millions upon millions of people across the globe suddenly disappear without warning. The millions of disappeared will have literally ascended into Heaven itself after instantaneously receiving a new glorified body fit for Heaven. A body that will be able to withstand the atmosphere and glory of Heaven. This event is known as the “Rapture.” But the promise of escape is only to those who are “born again” in Christ. This is why it is crucial to understand what Christ meant when he declared in no uncertain terms that only those who are “born again” in him will enter the Kingdom of God. For the explanation of this, keep reading below.
In order to accept the offer of God’s grace and his salvation, you must take the crucial three steps of …
1. Agreeing – A belief and agreeing with God in all that he says in his word, the Bible, about the fact that you are separated from God, as every man and woman on the face of the earth are before accepting his salvation. The Bible reveals that all are separated from him in a spiritual state of death, or in another way that the Bible puts it, in a state of sin, that will result in eternal damnation. Agreeing with God in your heart that you are in need of his salvation. The Bible reveals that God looks upon the heart of a man, and thus, responds accordingly to the man or woman who comes to him for salvation in recognition of his inability to save himself. The Bible makes these facts very clear – “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Romans 6:23). The Bible describes these three kinds of death: physical death (the state experienced when life leaves our bodies); spiritual death (spiritual separation from God caused by our state of spiritual death, or state of sin that results in outward acts of sin on a daily basis as the Bible also puts it – the state of sin is received from the first man Adam); and finally eternal death (the fixed state entered into by the individual who dies physically while he or she is dead spiritually). It is eternal death, in particular, which is the horrible result of receiving the wages of sin. The Lord Jesus Christ frequently described such a death as being eternal (without end) in a destiny which he called Hell. He described Hell as a literal place of judgment (Matthew 13:42); a place of everlasting fire (Matthew 18:8); a place of torment (Luke 16:24,28); a place of weeping and gnashing of teeth (Matthew 13:50); a place of remorse (Mark 9:44-48); of bitter memory (Luke 16:25), and a place originally prepared for the Devil and his angels (Matthew 25:41). In fact, Jesus more often warned about Hell than he spoke about Heaven.
It is not God’s will or desire that any person should be consigned to perish in Hell (2 Peter 3:9), but rather that all should come to repentance of unbelief toward him and believe on him for the salvation of the individual’s soul. But God’s justice requires that the “soul who sins” (remains in it’s state of death or state of sin) is the one who will die eternally (Ezekiel 18:4). So, agree with God, admitting that you are unable to save yourself and in a state of sin under God’s just condemnation for that sin and that you are in need of his salvation.
2. Believing – Then, believe that God does not want you to perish eternally in the torment of Hell because of your sin. Believe that God loves you so much that he provided a way whereby he could still be a just, holy and righteous God, and yet pardon you. Believe that God did not just overlook sin, but that he sent his only begotten son, the Lord Jesus Christ, to provide salvation by personally paying the penalty for sin. Believe that Jesus Christ, whose life, death, burial and resurrection is the best-attested fact of antiquity, did come to earth to live, die, rise again and ascend to Heaven in order to provide justification and salvation for all who trust him. Believe that he, and he alone, can save you because he has fully satisfied the just demands of God. Believe that you can’t become righteous in God’s sight by your own effort. Believe that he wants to save you and that he will save you. The Bible provides a solid basis for such belief …
“The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance (2 Peter 3:9).
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved” (John 3:16-17).
“But God demonstrates his love toward us in this: while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8).
God presented him (Jesus Christ) as a sacrifice of atonement through faith in his blood. He did this to demonstrate his justice because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished – he did it to demonstrate his justice at the present time, so as to be just and the one who justifies the man or woman who has faith in Jesus (Romans 3:25-26).
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures … ” (1 Corinthians 15:1-4).
“Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved” (Acts 4:12).
“Jesus answered, “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (John 14:6). “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28).
“All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out [drive away]” (John 6:37).
“Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me” (Revelation 3:20).
3. Calling – It is not enough to agree with God, admit your need, and believe that Christ can and will save you. You must act upon those facts. You must repent of the sin of your unbelief toward him and actively call upon him for the salvation of your soul based on the fact that you cannot save yourself because of your sins. You must be willing to completely turn from your own efforts to save yourself or from any other hope. You must come to Christ, calling upon him for salvation and counting on the fact that he will do what he has promised. This means simply taking the gift of pardon and eternal life which he offers. Merely believing about Jesus Christ without coming to him makes as much sense and is as effective as believing that a medication can successfully treat a fatal disease, but failing to take it. Yet again, the Bible emphatically and authoritatively provides the basis for such statements:
“He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God” (John 3:18).
The word translated “believe” here means to “rest one’s entire weight and trust on the object or person in which the belief is placed.” It requires action in keeping with the intellectual assent of that belief.
“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Romans 10:13).
” … but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:23).
The logical question you may be asking at this point is: “how do I come to Christ and call upon him?” The answer is that “calling upon the Lord” is just another term for praying, or talking to God. To talk to God is not a complicated process, dependent upon some special rituals. God has invited people to approach him through his Son in simple, straightforward terms. In fact, Jesus approved of the dishonest, despised tax collector who simply prayed, “God be merciful to me, a sinner.” While the exact words of your prayer to God are not of vital importance (since God sees and knows the attitude of your heart), the following is the kind of prayer that you could pray in calling upon God for salvation …
“Dear Lord Jesus: I realize that I need you. I admit that I have sinned and that I deserve your just, eternal punishment for that sin. But I am sorry for my sin and I am turning to you and asking for forgiveness. I believe that you died and rose again to pay sin’s penalty on my behalf. I come to you and open my heart to you. I ask you to come into my life, forgive me for all of my sin and make me your child. I invite you to take control of my life and to cause me to be the kind of person you would have me to be. I thank you for doing this because you have promised that whosoever calls upon you, as I am doing now, shall be saved. I pray this in the name of your Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.”
If this prayer expresses the desire of your heart, I urge you to sincerely and genuinely express it to God as your prayer. The Bible makes clear that when we believe on the Lord Jesus Christ in our heart, God forgives our sins and counts us righteous, and that when we openly confess with our mouth what we have done in our heart, God gives us assurance of that salvation (Romans 10:9-10).
