Prophecy Fulfilled or What?
Consider what the implications would be if the global fishing industry totally collapsed:
- How would that affect us all?
- How would it impact the world ecosystems?
- What about the global economy?
It would be totally disastrous all the way around, wouldn’t it?
And everyone who dwells there will waste away
With the beasts of the field
And the birds of the air;
Even the fish of the sea will be taken away.” (NKJV)
Let’s read what the book of Hosea says, chapter 4, verse 3d –
- The fishes of the sea also shall be taken away. (KJV)
- Even the fish of the sea will be taken away. (NKJV)
- Even the fish in the sea will be removed. (CJSB)
- Even the fish of the sea shall fail. (NETS-LXX)
- Even the fish of the sea are perishing (NRSV)
- And the fish of the sea are disappearing. (NLT)
- And also the fish of the sea disappear. (NASB footnote, the literal Hebrew is: “are taken away”).Note the KJV, NKJV & CJSB say that the fish will be either “Taken Away or Removed”. By whom?
Though let’s keep Hosea 4:1-10 in context: (NASB)
Judgment that’s long over-due, yes?
Malachai 3:15 (NKJV)History repeating itself perhaps?
Are we on the cusp of The Judgment?

The Tribulation Period Vs. Wrath of God
As strongly supported by elements of the text, the Tribulation Period is not likely to be the Wrath of God. Rather the Tribulation Period and Wrath of God are two totally separate and distinct components of the Great Consummation. The distinctions are obvious when all scriptures are fully considered within the Word of God. Should the Tribulation Period and the Wrath of God overlap at any point, scriptures would be violated. The primary function for the Tribulation Period is to separate true Christians from pseudo-Christians in order to exclude the faithful followers within the Body of Christ from the Wrath of God and prepare the saints for the Rapture, thereby fulfilling prophecy (Matthew 13:24–30). When considering these truths, it should be obvious true Christians are removed before the Wrath of God comes upon the wicked. By the time of God’s Wrath, the entire Body of Christ will reside at the Marriage Supper of the Lamb with the Father and His Son, Jesus Christ. Such scriptural truths confirm the Body of Christ’s role during the Tribulation Period of the Great Consummation. Continue reading
A Word from the Lord
December 22nd 2018
As many of you know “This Side of the Whirlwind” is a book of prophecy for this generation of the Body of Christ; nevertheless, it is rare for me to offer a Prophetic Word as I am merely a recipient and not the author of such revelation. Now, it is with great sadness and many tears I offer this Prophecy in the name of the Lord.
Lord, let there be two or three witnesses that Your Word lie not in the purview of men (2nd Corinthian 13:1).
I was in prayer Saturday, December 22nd when I received the following Word from the Lord:
(Beginning of Word from the Lord) Continue reading
And you think the Beginning of Sorrows has not begun?
When I read this I thought my readers should know.
Here’s a quote from someone in the middle of it all.
“Born and raised in Iran, Parsa claims he “was stabbed” after converting to Christianity, and eventually fled Iran as a “religious refugee.”
“With tears in my eyes, I was so thankful to be in America, where I can express myself, nobody can stop me or oppress me for my faith…and then this happened to me,” he told PJ Media, saying he’s “gone through this before,” but only “in Muslim countries.” Continue reading
Blinded & Ransomed
Between the Pre-, Mid-, and Post-Tribulation rapture theorists and the A-Millennialists and Preterists, millions of Christians have been blinded by false (lying) doctrines and are therefore at risk of losing or giving away their salvation.
Those who just said to themselves, “Oh, we cannot lose our salvation” have just proven a terrible point and shown their lack of scriptural understanding.
In general, we may not be able to lose our salvation… but we are not living in “general” times! No, we are living in the Latter Days and a time when the Tribulation Period of the Great Consummation and the Mark of the Beast are due to come upon us; and that, all too soon.

The Second Half of Christ’s Covenant
We left off with this contract between God and Humanity:
Behold, I set before you today a blessing and a curse;
- the blessing, if you obey the commandment of the LORD your God which I command you today;
- And the Curse (Judgment) if you do not obey the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you today. (Deuteronomy 11:26-28 NKJV)
Now, let’s look at the Split Versing of the Covenant of Jesus Christ.” The two divisions of the contract or covenant can be seen in Isaiah 61:1 and 2.
First Half of the Covenant”
At the beginning of His ministry Jesus announced Himself the fulfillment of the Blessing’s Half of the Contract when He said Isaiah 61:1-2a was fulfilled by Him (Jesus). He did this on the day He entered into His hometown Synagogue in Nazareth (Luke 4:14-21) and proclaimed Himself Israel’s Messiah. Here is what He read, Isaiah 61:1-2a:
“The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon Me, because the LORD has anointed Me to preach glad tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to bind up the brokenhearted; to proclaim liberty to the captives; and the opening of the prison to those who are bound; Continue reading
Beast or Anti-Christ
Most tend to think of the Beast as the Antichrist, but is this what scripture is referring to when it speaks of the Beast coming up out of the seas? Mostly… Yes!
1 John 4:7 says, “For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.” (NIV)
Over the next few posts titled, “The Beast” we will discuss who and what scripture calls the Beast or Antichrist and what attributes or character traits will adequately describe this infamous Biblical character.
The Second Half of Christ’s Covenant 2
How about another question?
Did you know — that as a Christian you are saved by the blood of the Lamb? There is NO OTHER name under heaven by which you MUST be saved.
This is a True statement!!!
The majority of Christians would answer this question in the affirmative.
And it is true; we are saved by the blood of the Lamb; Continue reading
Second half of Christ’s Covenant
How about a question? What is the 2nd half of Christ’s Covenant?
Here’s the “simple” answer. The 2nd half of Christ’s Covenant is the Judgment half of Christ’s two-part Contract with humanity for Salvation. Was that really a simple answer? You’d have to decide for your self. 🙂
What contract — you might ask?
The two part contract between God and humanity which offers people Salvation. Continue reading
