And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man: They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot: They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; but on the day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. Even so will it be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed. (Luke 17:26-30)
And the Lord said, “My Spirit will not remain with mankind forever, because they are corrupt. Their days will be 120 years.” (Genesis 6:3)
Abortion is leading cause of death worldwide for fourth year in a row Christian Post, January 4, 2023
Statistics reveal that abortion was the leading cause of death worldwide for the fourth year in a row, as the number of abortions nearly quadrupled the number of deaths from infectious diseases in 2022.
Worldometer, a database that keeps track of statistics about health, the global population and other metrics in real-time, continuously compiles information about the number of abortions worldwide. The last available snapshot of the Worldometer from 2022, captured on Dec. 31 by the internet archiving tool The Wayback Machine, shows that more than 44 million abortions took place last year.
While Worldometer cites a fact sheet from the World Health Organization as the source for its abortion statistics, the WHO maintains that “around 73 million induced abortions take place worldwide each year.” The global organization characterizes abortion as an essential health service.
The second leading cause of death in 2022, as identified by the Worldometer, was communicable diseases, causing nearly 13 million casualties. The deaths attributed to infectious diseases, as well as the more than 8 million deaths caused by cancer, the approximately 5 million fatalities triggered by smoking, the roughly 2.5 million alcohol-related deaths and the nearly 2 million deaths caused by AIDS this year combined add up to less than the number of lives lost to abortion in 2022.
Too much and not enough: The battle of drought and deluge across the US AccuWeather, Dec 30, 2022
The year 2022 has been one full of bitter irony as some regions across the U.S. experienced record-shattering rainfall totals while others faced stark water shortages amid an intense drought.
By Dec. 20, about 74% of the contiguous U.S. was abnormally dry or in drought, according to the U.S. Drought Monitor. While not ideal, the percentage is down from 85.3% during the week of Nov. 1 — the largest swath of the U.S. to be affected since the launch of Drought Monitor in 2000.
Drought conditions kept a particularly tight grip on the West, with California, Utah and Nevada seeing at least 40 consecutive weeks of moderate to exceptional drought statewide throughout the year 2022, all while straining the lifeline of river systems that wind through the region such as the Bear and Colorado rivers.
As the West and Plains dealt with pressing drought, other parts of the U.S. saw historic rainfall and flash flooding, including the Ohio Valley and Southeast.
In an analysis conducted by Climate Central of 240 U.S. locations, 147 of them had at least one 24-hour rainfall event totaling 2 inches or more, many of which were concentrated in the Southeast, south-central and Ohio Valley regions.
Six of these locations had 24-hour rainfall amounts that surpassed 6 inches, including two that had been in the path of Hurricane Ian, which delivered 7.72 inches and 6.67 inches, respectively, to Orlando and Sarasota, Florida, on Sept. 28. The other events happened throughout the summer, with Birmingham, Alabama, receiving 6.97 inches and experiencing significant flash flooding, Laredo, Texas, receiving a record-breaking 6.82 inches on Aug. 15 and Beaumont, Texas, receiving 6.20 inches on July 1.
The last event was in St. Louis, which received 8.64 inches of rainfall on July 26, causing historic flash flooding that would accumulate into a 1-in-1,000-year flood event.
By law, you are now a racist if you do not affirm same-sex ‘marriage’ WND, December 16, 2022
This is not hype or exaggeration. It is simple, legal truth. With the signing of the “Respect for Marriage Act” into law, if you do not accept or affirm same-sex “marriage,” you are now in the same category as a racist. And you can be assured that this will be used as a weapon against you in the days to come.
How can I make such statements?
Let me remind you of the exact language of the bill, beginning with the opening words: “This act provides statutory authority for same-sex and interracial marriages.”
In this article, I want to point out how the language is being used to target and demonize those of us who affirm and welcome interracial marriage, which contains the fundamental elements of a marriage (a man and a woman) but reject the validity of same-sex “marriage.”
A headline on the CNBC website announced, “Biden signs bill to protect same-sex and interracial marriages,” one among countless, similar headlines. These two categories, quite disparate and fundamentally unrelated, are now joined together as one. Who but a racist or a bigot would have a problem with either?
But let me simplify things here. The president put it all together in one sentence, making it clearer than I could in a whole article. These are the words of the president of the United States of America on Dec. 13, 2022, at the signing of the bill: “Folks, racism, anti-Semitism, homophobia, transphobia – they’re all connected.”
The Age of Apostasy
The church age is outlined with Jesus’s message to the seven churches, using actual churches that were located in the region we now know as the country of Turkey:
Apostolic Age (33 to 100 AD) – Ephesus: From this church, those “who overcome are granted to eat from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of God.” (Revelation 2:1-7). Praised for not bearing those who are evil, testing those who say they are apostles and are not, and finding them to be liars; hating the deeds of the Nicolaitans; having persevered and possessing patience. Admonished to “do the first works” and to repent for having left their “first love”.
Age of Persecution (100 to 312 AD) – Smyrna: From this church, those who are faithful until death, will be given “the crown of life”. Those who overcome shall not be hurt by the second death. (Revelation 2:8-11). Praised for being “rich” while impoverished and in tribulation. Admonished not to fear the “synagogue of Satan”, nor fear a ten-day tribulation of being thrown into prison.
Imperial Church Age (312 to 600 AD) – Pergamon: From this church, those who overcome will be given the hidden manna to eat and a white stone with a secret name on it.” (Revelation 2:12-17). Praised for holding “fast to My name”, not denying “My faith” even in the days of Antipas, “My faithful martyr”. Admonished to repent for having held the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balak to put a stumbling block before the children of Israel; eating things sacrificed to idols, committing sexual immorality, and holding the “doctrine of the Nicolaitans”.
Age of the Papacy (600 to 1517 AD) – Thyatira: From this church, those who overcome until the end, will be given power over the nations in order to dash them to pieces with the rule of a rod of iron; they will also be given the “morning star”. (Revelation 2:18-29). Praised for their works, love, service, faith, and patience. Admonished to repent for allowing a “prophetess” to promote sexual immorality and to eat things sacrificed to idols.
Reformation Age (1517 to 1700 AD) – Sardis: From this church, those who overcome will be clothed in white garments, and their names will not be blotted out from the Book of Life; their names will also be confessed before the Father and His angels. (Revelation 3:1-6). Admonished to be watchful and to strengthen since their works haven’t been perfect before God.
Missionary Age (1700 to 1900 AD) – Philadelphia: From this church, those who overcome will be made a pillar in the temple of God having the name of God, the name of the city of God, “New Jerusalem”, and the Son of God’s new name. (Revelation 3:7-13). Praised for having some strength, keeping “My word”, and having not denied “My name”. Admonished to hold fast what they have, that no one may take their crown.
Age of Apostasy (1900 to Present Day) – Laodicea: From this church, those who overcome will be granted the opportunity to sit with the Son of God on His throne. (Revelation 3:14-22). Admonished to be zealous and repent from being “lukewarm”; they are instructed to buy the “gold refined in the fire”, that they may be rich; to buy “white garments”, that they may be clothed, so that the shame of their nakedness would not be revealed; to anoint their eyes with eye salve, that they may see.
The seventh and final letter to the churches of ancient Asia Minor is to the church in the city of Laodicea. This last message is found in Revelation 3:14-22. Laodicea was a wealthy, industrious city in the province of Phrygia in the Lycos Valley.
In contrast to the other six churches, the Laodicean church has nothing to commend it. Jesus begins the message with condemnation: “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish that you were cold or hot. So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I am going to vomit you out of My mouth. Because you say, ‘I’m rich; I have become wealthy and need nothing,’ and you don’t know that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind, and naked” (Revelation 3:15-17).
Jesus emphasizes their “lukewarm,” apathetic nature three times. As a result of their ambivalence to spiritual things, Jesus would have nothing to do with them. He would “vomit them out,” as the people of Laodicea would spit out the tepid water that flowed from the underground aqueducts to their city. With their apathy came a spiritual blindness; they claimed to be rich, blessed and self-sufficient. Perhaps they were rich in material things. But, spiritually, the Laodiceans were in a wretched, pitiful condition, made all the worse in that they could not see their need. This was a church filled with self-deceived hypocrites.
Jesus calls the Laodicean church to repent of its sin: “I advise you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire so that you may be rich, white clothes so that you may be dressed and your shameful nakedness not be exposed, and ointment to spread on your eyes so that you may see” (Revelation 3:18). Their material wealth had no eternal benefit, so Jesus commands them to come to Him for true, spiritual riches (see Isaiah 55:1-2). Only Christ can supply an everlasting inheritance, clothe us in righteousness, and heal our spiritual blindness.
Jesus then notes His concern for His church in Laodicea: “As many as I love, I rebuke and discipline. So be committed and repent. Listen! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and have dinner with him, and he with Me” (Revelation 3:19-20).
His rebuke is not born of animosity but of love. “the Lord disciplines the one He loves” (Hebrews 12:6). The desired response to God’s reproof was zealous change and true repentance.
What has happened to Christianity in the last 120+ years? How far have we fallen?
CHRISLAM CONFIRMED: Led By Pope Francis, Leaders Of The World’s Religions Formally Adopt Human Fraternity Document At 7th Congress NTEB, September 17, 2022
It’s official, Chrislam has now been codified and ratified, with the approval at the 7th Congress of Leaders of World and Traditional Religions, of the Human Fraternity document created by Pope Francis of the Vatican, and financed and promoted by Mohamed bin Zayed of the UAE. Question – Guess who they forgot to invite to the festivities? Answer – Jesus Christ, His Name appears nowhere and is never mentioned. I wonder who the ‘honored guest” is then? Hmm.
“For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.” 1 Thessalonians 5:3 (KJB)
Whether or not Pope Francis retires as some are suggesting, or whether or not he will be the biblical Antichrist is, at this point, rather immaterial. Because he has now put into place, and set into motion, the functional political, religious and financial framework on which the One World Religion of Chrislam will operate. Pope Francis could die tomorrow, but what he has created will live on into the time of Jacob’s trouble. Of course, all this prophetic fulfillment could not have taken place without his very generous patron and backer, Mohamed bin Zayed. Is he the “prince of the covenant”? Time will tell, but man oh man, this is a giant (pun intended) step forward. We warned you for the past 13 years Chrislam was coming, now it’s here. Are you ready to fly?
It is time to wake up, repent, and get spiritually ready.
As Christians, we obtain our peace and security through Jesus Christ. The fact is that there are irreconcilable conflicts between Christianity and all other religions. Christianity alone makes provision for man’s basic need – the forgiveness of sin.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. (John 3:16)
“Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. And where I go you know, and the way you know.”
Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?”
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.“ (John 14:1-6)
The Laodicean “Age of Apostasy” has been degenerating the Church for over 120 years now. We have reached the same point as the days of Noah, leading up to the Flood.
And the Lord said, “My Spirit will not remain with mankind forever, because they are corrupt. Their days will be 120 years.” (Genesis 6:3)
The door of Noah’s ark is an example of the finality of a door closing:
In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on that day all the sources of the watery depths burst open, the floodgates of the sky were opened, and the rain fell on the earth 40 days and 40 nights. On that same day Noah along with his sons Shem, Ham, and Japheth, Noah’s wife, and his three sons’ wives entered the ark with him. They entered it with all the wildlife according to their kinds, all livestock according to their kinds, the creatures that crawl on the earth according to their kinds, all birds, every fowl, and everything with wings according to their kinds. Two of all flesh that has the breath of life in it entered the ark with Noah. Those that entered, male and female of all flesh, entered just as God had commanded him. Then the Lord shut him in. (Genesis 7:11-16)
When the Lord closed the door, He pronounced a death sentence on all of the people who drowned. The Lord knew beforehand that they would never believe Noah’s preaching.
Clearly, the period of testing is over, and judgement is about to begin.
As Christians, should we be worried? The Bible states:
For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work, but the one now restraining will do so until he is out of the way, and then the lawless one will be revealed. (2 Thessalonians 2:7-8)
The restrainer of all these things is the Holy Spirit, embodied in the believers on the Earth. When we are removed in the Rapture, the Holy Spirit will stop His restraint, and the Day of the Lord will begin. All hell will literally break loose.
We who believe will be long gone before that day. All we need to know, is that that Day is very, very close.
Why is there such an End Times push for abortion and non-reproductive sex? What is really going on?
For decades, some of the world’s most powerful people have meet in secret to discuss global political and economic affairs. This ‘Shadow world government’ meets in secret forums like the Bilderberg Group, the Club of Rome, and Bohemian Grove, and controls every major global decision. The Shadow Government picks world leaders, leaders of major international organizations and sets policies globally and domestically inside nations. They have already decided that population growth must be addressed as a potentially disastrous environmental, social and industrial threat.
Get the facts: Abortion has always been about controlling certain populations Live Action News, April 30, 2022
The call for legalizing abortion in the United States was not due to women demanding it — the call came from eugenicist zealots pushing abortion as a population control solution.
In a 2009 New York Times Magazine interview with now-deceased Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg suggested that Roe was a product of eugenic philosophy meant to limit certain populations. She shockingly acknowledged, “I had thought that at the time Roe was decided, there was concern about population growth, and particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of.”
In 1969, Harriet Pilpel, general counsel to the American Civil Liberties Union — and later, chairwoman of the Law Panel International of Planned Parenthood Federation, according to the New York Times — published The Right to Abortion, in which she described abortion as “the most widespread… method of fertility control in the modern world,” adding, “If we really want to cut our population growth rate on a voluntary basis, we should make abortion available on a voluntary basis, at least in the early stages of pregnancy.”
Abortion enthusiasts were very concerned about population control, with some promoting coercive measures to control population growth. Among them were Alan F. Guttmacher, the impetus behind Planned Parenthood’s decision to commit abortions, and Lawrence (Larry) Lader, a former co-founder of NARAL Pro-Choice America (known then as National Association for the Repeal of Abortion Laws) who was dubbed the “father of the abortion movement.”
The 1969 New York Times article, “Dr. Guttmacher is the Evangelist of Birth Control,” acknowledges that many leaders sitting on Planned Parenthood’s board were in favor of coercive measures of population control. The Times also noted that a “sizable” number of Planned Parenthood’s board was made up of “preponderantly white and well-to-do” people, and quoted a Planned Parenthood board member who admitted that a racist attitude pervades the organization. He stated, “What it all comes down to is that we want the poor to stop breeding while we retain our freedom to have large families. It’s strictly a class point of view.”
In 1966, Guttmacher compared the idea of overpopulation with the threat of nuclear war, telling the Washington Post that governments may need to take population control measures among families “out of the voluntary category.” But, while many openly espoused the use of coercion, Guttmacher also suggested “volunteerism” as a better strategy to the same end and claimed it was “strategically unwise” to promote coercion at that time. But he never ruled out coercive measures, instead indicating that if voluntary means did not bring population numbers down, some form of coercion would become necessary.
While Guttmacher and Margaret Sanger, both eugenicists, were concerned that overpopulation was a threat, it was under Guttmacher’s leadership that Planned Parenthood first voiced the idea of abortion as part of the ‘solution’ to this perceived problem.
He said in a 1970 interview, “If we could get the abortion law liberalized, most of the 750,000 unwanted pregnancies would not lead to babies – rejected children, battered baby syndrome and illegal abortions.” That same year, Guttmacher admitted to a Cornell Symposium, “There is no question that the most effective way of reducing population growth is by unlimited abortion.”
These abortion leaders would later put forth more palatable euphemisms such as “freedom” and “pro-choice” — as better selling points than eugenics or population control.
Lader presented abortion as liberation for women, calling it “the final freedom,” and quoting Sanger as saying, “No woman can call herself free until she can choose consciously whether she will or will not be a mother.”
“The complete legalization of abortion is the one just and inevitable answer to the quest for feminine freedom,” Lader stated. “All other solutions are compromises.”
What does the Lord have to say about this plan?
“See that you don’t look down on one of these little ones, because I tell you that in heaven their angels continually view the face of My Father in heaven.” (Matthew 18:10)
Is the Lord willing to forgive the mass murder of the unborn? Is He willing to forgive the rampant and aggressive perversion that is exploding across the world?
It may be too late for the world system, but for each individual who has breath, it is never too late for God’s forgiveness. He is rich in mercy to all who call upon Him in sincere repentance. A full pardon for all wrongdoing is available at the cross of Jesus Christ!
Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books. The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works. Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire. (Revelation 20:11-15)
Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.” And He said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son. But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.” (Revelation 21:5-8)
His requirements are to love God with all your body, mind, and spirit and your neighbors as yourself. He sent Holy Spirit to help us make good choices to keep our lives on the right path towards heaven.
Jesus said to him, ” ‘You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. ‘ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself. ‘ On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.” (Matthew 22:37-40)
If you are not sure that you are saved, you can accept Christ into your life right now, by praying:
“Lord Jesus, I believe you are the Son of God. Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins. Please forgive my sins and give me the gift of eternal life. I ask you in to my life and heart to be my Lord and Savior.”

The need for fact-based Biblical analysis with an international perspective on critical events has never been greater. But it takes a lot of hard work, time, and money to do what we do. Help us continue to be a voice for truth in the media.
We are independent and can’t be cancelled. When you support Rapture and End Times, you support Christian freedom of expression at a time when it’s under direct attack.
As you know, time is running out. We have a unique opportunity to preach online now. No one knows how long that access will last. 44,000 people perish each day without hearing the Good News. Help us to reach them now, before it is eternally too late!
Give, and it will be given to you; a good measure—pressed down, shaken together, and running over—will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you. (Luke 6:38)
Remember this: The person who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and the person who sows generously will also reap generously. Each person should do as he has decided in his heart—not reluctantly or out of necessity, for God loves a cheerful giver. (2 Corinthians 9:6-7)
Give to them, and don’t have a stingy heart when you give, and because of this the Lord your God will bless you in all your work and in everything you do. (Deuteronomy 15:10)
