The Siege and Destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans Under the Command of Titus, A.D. 70, Oil on canvas, 1850, David Roberts.

During the recent blood moon eclipse, it was brought to my attention that a certain well-known pastor had predicted that Christ would return September 27-28th. Obviously it did not happen. Earlier in the month we had the Shemitah, which supposedly occurred on September 13; this also spurred a string of predictions regarding the imminent collapse of the American economy. That didn’t happen either. Not that it couldn’t happen, but it didn’t happen like some people had hoped and predicted. In other words, the end of the world predictions were all wrong once again.

Then, to my utter amazement I discovered another prediction! Another Christian leader predicted that the end of the world was going to happen on Wednesday, October 7th. The funny thing was, I didn’t discover this failed prophecy until the next day, Thursday, October 8! WRONG AGAIN!

If another Christian leader sets a date for the end of the world, or the return of Christ, mark that person as a false prophet. Most of them won’t apologize, they just try to spin it like they didn’t do anything wrong. This reminds me of the kid with his hand in the cookie jar; he was caught, but he won’t admit a thing.

Predictions like these are always going to be wrong! How can I be so positive in that statement? Because these predictions come from the minds of prophetic wannabe’s who aren’t really satisfied with Bible prophecy as it is written, and so they have to embellish circumstances, and in the end they always prove to be wrong. The result is that real Bible prophecy is tarnished and discredited, and thousands of people end up with damaged faith. That is the fruit produced  by the prognostications of the false prophets in todays church.

There is an answer to this madness: stop it and read the Bible.


Joel 2:30-31:  And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.  The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.

Notice that Joel says that there will be a “blood” moon, but it comes when the sun goes dark (or begins to go dark, since the moon reflects sunlight). But the key here is that the blood moon happens right before the Day of the Lord; a day called “great” and “terrible.”

Jesus added to Joel by saying:

“Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.  And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other” (Matt.24:29-31).


Notice that the celestial signs, which are a harbinger of the Second Coming, happen after the Tribulation. Not before, but after. This time the moon will not reflect light because the sun will be darkened.


In the late 1980’s I heard a prophecy teacher say that the Holy Spirit revealed to him that Mikhail Gorbachev, former leader of the Soviet Union, was the Antichrist. I also heard a Pentecostal minister say that the Holy Spirit revealed to him that when Richard Nixon died, the Tribulation will begin. Well, old Gorby is not the Antichrist, that is plain to see, and Nixon died in 1994, 21 years ago, and the Tribulation hasn’t started yet.


So, what does the Bible say regarding the appearance of the antichrist? As it happens, Paul gave us a series of events regarding the time when the of Man of Sin will be revealed to the world. Did you know that?

Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,  That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition (2 Th. 2:1-3).

Notice that just as Paul admonished the church at Thessalonica not to be shaken or troubled in their mind about these things, we too are not to be rattled by false prophecies coming from some of these well-known Christians.  Just because a person is in some kind of Christian leadership position, that does not mean that they also make a good prophet, especially if they ignore the clear teaching of Scripture not to set dates; all that does is tarnish the name of Christ, and upset the faith of many people.

Secondly, Paul ties the gathering of Christians with the Second Coming of Christ. The gathering is the rapture, but notice that it does not happen until four clear and distinct signs appear in the world.

  1. There will be a great apostasy. This is different from the general apostasy we see in the church today. The Greek here reads “the apostasy,” referring to something unique. Some render it “the falling away.” It refers to a total abandonment from Christianity by those in the church. It comes from a root referring to a bill of divorce. In other words, mankind will divorce the very heart of our faith: God the Father, Jesus Christ, and biblical salvation by faith in Christ.
  2. The revelation of the Antichrist, the Man of Sin.
  3. An open display of satanic supernatural power unlike anything so far seen in the world, from the beginning of time, to this day.
  4. The Man of Sin will present himself to the world as God, and demand worship. He will set in a Temple-like structure and commit the Abomination of Desolation predicted by both Daniel and Jesus (Matt. 24:15; Daniel 9:27; 11:31; 12:11).

When we see these four things we will know for certain we are near (or in) the time of the Great Tribulation, and the Second Coming of Jesus. Don’t be shaken by the prophets of today. Let them blow and huff as they spew out their “prophecies.” Don’t lose your peace and be disturbed by any of it.

You now have four distinct signs by which you can understand the times. Have faith in Christ, and stand on the firm foundation of His Word.

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).

    on my personal opinion, the end times, to be when hand of the man decide,just one button than
    we can said good by forever.


    • Luis Angel, Thanks for your comment. I appreciate your interest. If I am following your comment correctly, you must be referring to the nuclear “button.” My hope is that nuclear weapons will never be used again, however, you may be right, in that sometime in the future, nuclear weapons may be used in war.
      I think we should consider that God controls the events on Earth. Man may make his decisions, yet God controls it all. Our hope is not in this world, its under judgment and will come under more judgment in the future. Our hope is found in Christ. He is our life and hope, and our salvation. That’s the place to look, not to politicians, religious leaders, or others, but the Lord Jesus Christ. That’s our true hope. This world will pass away, but the Word of the Lord is forever.
