The gate is opening, and the snakes of the Evil One are entering. It’s happening, folks. Right before our eyes. Look. Investigate. See the world events lining-up with what Jesus Himself predicted, along with Apostle Paul (and go deeper by studying the books of Daniel and Revelation).
If we don’t die of virus or poor health, some evil or an errant Mac Truck, we just might live into the Rapture! Look into Jesus’ predictions here with me. The Bible predicts these events that we can right now see in the news!
“See that you are not frightened,
for those things must take place….”
– Matthew 24:6
“…do not be afraid
of those who kill the body
and after that
have nothing more that they can do….”
“…but rather be afraid of Him who can destroy both soul and body in hell.”
– Luke 12:4; Matthew 10:28
The beginning of “Birth Pangs” is predicted to happen — before the End Times. Jesus told us about these pangs in His Mount of Olives discourse in Matthew 24:verses 3-8. We are most definitely currently in these pangs – now. Can you see it? This is Jesus talking to us (from way back before He died for us):
3 As He was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying,
“Tell us, when will these things happen, and what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?”
4 And Jesus answered and said to them,
“See to it that no one misleads you. 5 For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will mislead many. 6 You will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end. 7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes. 8 But all these things are merely the beginning of birth pangs.
Evil is coming upon us, folks. All around the world. Jesus predicted it. And now investigative journalists like Leo.Hohmann@yahoo.com are warning us of it. Read his article, ‘Social distancing’ is not the answer; it’s the problem, and maybe buy his book: Stealth Invasion.
According to Jesus in Matthew 24:verses 3-8, during the period of time He Himself called “Birth Pangs”- this is what will be happening. We can see these pangs have already been happening, are happening even now, and will continue happening as Jesus predicted – until “the end” (v6):
- Misleading of many by false prophets saying “I am the Christ” (part of The Apostasy)
- Wars and rumors of wars
- Nation rising against nation
- Kingdom against kingdom
- Famines in various places
- Earthquakes in various places
We have been seeing these “birth pangs” for many years. Read the news.
The “birth pangs” prophecy was made by Jesus. That happened. And the Pangs are still happening. “The beginning of birth pangs” suggests that this pain will continue. We are in a world of pangs, pains, and they will continue happening till “the end”, Jesus says.
Jesus predicts (in verse 9): “Then they will deliver you to tribulation….” But this verse 9 is not talking about The Great Tribulation period. That period is not introduced by Jesus until twelve verses later (verse 21).
After explaining about the specific season He calls “birth pangs”, Jesus then continues in Matthew 24:verses 9-14. Again, this is not about The Great Tribulation period. I think this is a description (verses 9-14) of what will start happening towards the end part of the “birth pangs”. And it appears we are already there, folks. All of these pangs have been happening in our lifetime, right now. So Jesus says:
9 “Then they will deliver you to tribulation, and will kill you, and you will be hated by all nations because of My name. 10 At that time many will fall away and will betray one another and hate one another. 11 Many false prophets will arise and will mislead many. 12 Because lawlessness is increased, most people’s love will grow cold. 13 But the one who endures to the end, he will be saved. 14 This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come.
This “ending part of the birth pangs“, happening just prior to the period called “The Great Tribulation”, will see (1-7):
- tribulation experienced by Christians [horrible treatment: suffering, persecution, rejection] (v9)
- the killing of many true Christians (v9)
- hatred by all nations “because of My name” (*The name of Jesus) (v9)
- The Apostasy: (verses 10-11) For more, read: First, Apostasy, then Antichrist, then the Rapture
- “At that time many will fall away” (v10)
- “Many false prophets will arise” (v11)
- “Many… “will mislead many” (v11)
- Betrayal of true Christians by fake Christians (v10)
- Fake Christians will hate true Christians (v10)
- “Lawlessness is increased” (v12)
- most people’s love will grow cold (v12)
- most people’s love will grow cold (v12)
- “This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world” (v14)
- Then, mentioned by Apostle Paul: “the revealing of the “man of lawlessness”
- After these “pangs” (1-7) then will come: the Rapture, and then
- The Great Tribulation. We know this because of Jesus and Apostle Paul.
These ending pangs include the horrible treatment of Christians: (Matthew 24:verse 9)
“they will deliver you to tribulation,
and will kill you,
and you will be hated….” (verse 9)
The sufferings of persecuted Christians has been happening for years. Ask any Christians in North Korea, Afghanistan, Somalia, Sudan, Pakistan, Eritrea, Libya, Iraq, Yemen, Iran, Pakistan, Nigeria — if they are in tribulations! Yes, the tribulations of verse 9 – not The Great Tribulation period). Well, you can’t ask them – because most of them are dead. Our good news is we never die alone. Even if we die, we live.
Repeat that again: Followers of Christ in many areas have been suffering horrible tribulations – for years now. But this is not The Great Tribulation period of verse 21. These are the tribulations of right now (verse 9), before that culmination of the end times called The Great Tribulation.
The 2018 graphic by Open Doors “World Watch List” of 2018 (yes, this has been happening for years) – ranks the top ten areas where Christians are persecuted horribly, as: North Korea (No. 1), Afghanistan (No. 2), Somalia (No. 3), Sudan (No. 4), Pakistan (No. 5), Eritrea (No. 6), Libya (No. 7), Iraq (No. 8), Yemen (No. 9), and Iran (No. 10)… Pakistan, Nigeria, and the list goes on.
Open Doors released today its 2018 World Watch List (WWL), an annual ranking of the 50 countries where it is most dangerous to follow Jesus. Approximately 215 million Christians now experience high, very high, or extreme levels of persecution; that means 1 in 12 Christians live where Christianity is “illegal, forbidden, or punished,” according to Open Doors researchers….
It’s not a coincidence that all of these countries—except North Korea and Eritrea—are predominately Muslim. In fact, “Islamic extremism remains the global, dominant driver of persecution, responsible for initiating oppression and conflict in 35 of the 50 countries on the list,” Open Doors stated.

There are many non-Muslim persecutors of Christians, mostly communist, like China, Russia, North Korea…. But, as the quote above says, “…“Islamic extremism remains the global, dominant driver of persecution…” of Christians.
It is apparent now (April 30, 2020), to those who look with open eyes — who it is that will bring in the end times and the appearing of the Antichrist. Totally astounding to tie the pieces together.
This group is the global, dominant drivers of Globalism. They are the powers bringing the world into submission for the Antichrist. They are, according to Leo Hohmann: (this is a list made from Leo’s specific quotes)
Bill Gates and his corrupt buddies at the United Nations-World Health Organization medical-industrial complex, the monopolistic power of Google-YouTube-Facebook, mainstream media, almost every Democrat governor and mayor, the Vatican and the pope, a growing number of evangelical Protestant leaders, the richest foundations on their side, those run by the Soroses, Rockefellers, Carnegies, Gateses, and countless others with names nowhere near as recognizable
The times “they are a’changing”. The times have changed. It appears that the “revealing” of the Antichrist, which will immediately precede the Rapture, is just around the corner, folks. This is really and truly unrefutable for us who look with biblically opened eyes.
The Antichrist. The Globalists are set to pounce and set him up, ready for his “revealing”. Then, after what Apostle Paul calls the “revealing”, the Rapture will happen and The Great Tribulation will kick into high gear …bursting onto the world stage.
We know the chronological order of the beginning of “Birth Pangs” and of “the end” times events – because of what Apostle Paul predicted in 2 Thessalonians 2:1-3.
Read about it here: First, Apostasy, then Antichrist, then the Rapture. Here’s an excerpt:
The “Rapture” as it’s called today, is called by Paul in verses 1-2 – “the day of the Lord”, and “our gathering together to meet Him“. On some glorious day, very soon, we will, mysteriously, be suddenly caught-up in the clouds meeting-up with Him and with His resurrected ones who preceded us in death. But, that great event will be preceded by two big events, he says.
The Apostle Paul said this about that. (I have numbered these for emphasis:)
“…that day will not come unless
(1) the apostasy comes first… and
(2) the man of lawlessness is revealed” (verse 3).
Other events will happen before, in-between, and after the Rapture… of course. But we are looking here specifically at the Apostle Paul’s sequence of events, as he predicted them. (And he’s pretty reliable!)
The Great Tribulation. It is in Matthew 24:verse 21 that Jesus introduces us to the prophecy of “a Great Tribulation”:
21 For then there will be a great tribulation, such as has not occurred since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever will. 22 Unless those days had been cut short, no life would have been saved; but for the sake of the elect those days will be cut short.
I believe “those days will be cut short” refers to the Rapture. Two reasons for this “cutting short”: 1) otherwise “no life would have been saved“; and 2) “for the sake of the elect“.
Jesus is basically saying to us: The Rapture will take away “the elect” for “the sake of the elect”… so that they do not have to endure My wrath – the wrath I will cause to happen during the Great Tribulation.
God has promised we will never be under His wrath. We have been set free from His wrath. Read the verses about it here: First, Apostasy, then Antichrist, then the Rapture. Here’s the excerpt:
As a child of the King, I am never going to experience the wrath of God. I’ve been set free. I’ve been destined for better things: “…all the privileges and rewards of a new life with Him.” – 1 Thessalonians 1:10.
This promise of God is another reason I believe we will not go through the Great Tribulation — where the wrath of God will be unleashed on the world:
10 and to [look forward and confidently] wait for [the coming of] His Son from heaven, whom He raised from the dead—Jesus, who [personally] rescues us from the coming wrath…. – 1 Thessalonians 1:10
9 For God has not destined us for wrath, but for obtaining salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, 10 who died for us, so that whether we are awake or asleep, we will live together with Him. – 1 Thessalonians 5:9-10
So He raptures us in order to then send His wrath, which comes sometime during the period that we call The Great Tribulation. When exactly the Rapture takes place – we do not know. But we do know that the Rapture will definitely take place after the “man of lawlessness” is revealed.
But how long after? We do not know. It may be immediately after his revealing. [Yippee. That would be great.] Or it may be delayed and happen during The Great Tribulation, before the wrath of God is released – maybe happening mid-tribulation. We know not.
The next great event in biblical prophecy seems to be (Matthew 24:verse 6) what Jesus called “the end” – what we commonly call the End Times.
The Globalist agenda is spreading, with only 3 world leaders resisting, Trump among them. We are merely one election away from God’s predicted End Times — if Trump is removed.
Folks: know it. Read about happenings in the world with Fox News, not in the fake news outlets that hide their agendas and twist things. For all its faults, Fox News actually reports news “straight up”. We are in a period of time called “Birth Pangs” (Matthew 24:verses 3-8). And “the end” comes next.
Editor’s Note: I do not usually “get political” nor share world news events, but — read this (and weep?) and know – the end is near: ‘Social distancing’ is not the answer; it’s the problem
