The Church is Divided by Two Visions of the Future

The church is divided by two visions of the future. In one camp are those who believe the future is bright and life as we have known it will continue for many years to come. Most of them believe the Lord is returning some day, but not in our generation.

In the other camp are those who believe the Lord is returning in our generation and we are now seeing the fulfillment of Isaiah 60, a time when darkness covers the earth and deep darkness covers the people. During this time, the light of God will arise on His people and His glory will appear upon them, causing multitudes to be drawn to His light.

On both sides are prophetic voices claiming to have received words from God supporting their view with some claiming President Trump will deliver on his campaign promise to “Make America Great Again,” while others are warning of a great storm fast approaching, which will forever change life as we have known it.

Both views cannot be right, which puts believers in the valley of decision where they must discern and decide what they believe. One of the best ways to decide who is right is by examining the evidence. We now have the benefit of hindsight, so we can consider the indisputable facts from the past rather than the uncertainty of the future. Many end-time prophecies have already been fulfilled, marking our generation as the final one before the Lord returns. It would take a book to document all the details, but here are a few examples:

  • The birth of modern Israel as foretold in Isaiah 11:11-12
  • Increased earthquake activity as foretold in Matthew 24:7
  • Increases in knowledge as demonstrated through advanced technology, as foretold in Daniel 12:4.
  • Tens of thousands of people have already received microchip implants with plans for many more coming, as foretold by the mark of the beast in Revelation 13:16-18
  • Increases in homosexuality as foretold in 2 Timothy 3:1-5

One of the best examples of fulfilled end-time prophecies is the one given to Dr. James Maloney in 1985. James Maloney is President of The ACTS Group International and the author of several books. He said this:

“I believe the Lord told me that starting in 2015 this darkness of Isaiah 60 would begin to increase exponentially across the globe, but that we as the remnant were to arise and shine because the glory of the Lord was risen upon us. This darkness isn’t comprised solely of arrant sin, but of a spirit of antichrist.”

So about thirty years in advance, Dr. Maloney was warned darkness would begin to increase exponentially throughout the world in 2015. Did it happen? I believe we can prove it did by considering the evidence.

The kind of darkness he described is spiritual darkness, so how do we measure it? I believe one way is by measuring the deeds of darkness, which would include the murder of innocent people, which can be measured by the number of global terrorist incidents committed annually.

Wikipedia documents all terrorist incidents. Beginning in 1970, their reports include one page per year, but by 2011 the numbers increased so much they had to start reporting in six month increments. By 2015, the numbers increased so much they had to start reporting in one-month increments. The number of incidents increased 53% in 2015 over 2014, but it was not a one-year blip. It accelerated dramatically in 2016, up 351% over 2015, which is an amazing fulfillment of what Dr. Maloney saw way back in 1985.

To put it in perspective, there have been more incidents in the past five years than in the previous forty-two years combined (2,520 incidents from 1970 to 2011 compared with 2,929 incidents from 2012 to 2016). And there is no evidence of it slowing down as the first five months of 2017 have maintained the same pace as 2016. (Source: Wikipedia)

Another measure of the deeds of darkness is the increased division among the American people. In 2014, after I received a dream revealing a coming economic collapse, I asked God when it was coming. He told me, “It will come next year (2015) during a time of increased tensions between the American people.”

The Lord did not say the whole collapse would happen in 2015, just that it would come. The first scene from my dream was fulfilled in 2015 as the dollar index soared to new heights, which continued in 2016 and I am expecting it to remain strong until the dollar is suddenly devalued, but the other part of it, the increased tensions, also happened.

When I received that word back in 2014, I wondered what would cause it, but it was mostly due to the U.S. Presidential election. Tensions started rising in 2015 and have been increasing ever since. Here are few recent examples.

  • Democratic leaders are openly calling for the impeachment of President Trump despite having no evidence of any wrongdoing.
  • A few weeks ago, a comedian held up a fake head of President Trump and joked about cutting his head off while her audience gave her a standing ovation.
  • Last week, an assassin attempted a mass murder of U.S. Congressmen.
  • Last week the Golden State Warriors won the NBA Championship, but unlike previous years they are not expected to receive an invitation to the White House because many of the players have publicly stated they would not be willing to go due to their animosity for President Trump.

I believe the evidence shows Dr. Maloney received a true word from God. If so, the implications are enormous because it means darkness has already started increasing exponentially and will continue until the Lord returns to crush the rebellion, which is consistent with scriptural warnings of great darkness arising prior to the return of the Lord, culminating in the rise of a man of sin who commits an abomination that brings desolation when he establishes his throne in the temple in Jerusalem (2 Thessalonians 2:1-4).

The physical evidence supports this conclusion. Increased terrorist activity is likely to continue and even increase further. My analysis of the terrorist incidents committed since 1970 shows over 90% were committed by Muslims. The sharp increase in the number of incidents was caused by the migration of millions of Muslims from Middle Eastern and North African nations into Europe in 2015 and 2016. Wherever they resettled, terrorist incidents skyrocketed along with increased crimes and diseases. So, the only way to return to previous levels would be to send all the Muslim immigrants back to their home countries, but just the opposite is happening.

For example, on April 5, a German newspaper (Bild) revealed a government report authorizing 270,000 Syrian migrants living in Germany to bring their family members to join them in Germany. (Source: Reuters) Muslims typically have large families, so this ruling could easily result in over one million additional Muslim migrants entering Germany. This train has left the station and is now accelerating out of control.

Likewise, the evidence shows the division among the American people has continued to increase. We have no reason to believe it will stop.

Conclusion:

For most of my Christian life, I was in the first camp, believing the return of the Lord was in the distant future and life in America would continue for many years to come. Then in 2011 God started revealing future events to me, including a total collapse of the U.S. dollar and our financial institutions. He also showed me secret plans to destroy our nation and murder our people, led by Barack Obama. Those revelations opened my eyes to see how blind and unprepared most Christians are for what is coming and how unwilling most Christian leaders are to discuss these topics with their people. It’s too disturbing, not what anyone wants to hear, unpopular, likely to scare people away, so it’s bad for business. Churches have become more like business enterprises than God enterprises. Pastors have become more like CEO’s rather than shepherds. The Spirit of God has been almost completely silenced as money and power have become the primary driving forces.

In November 2012, I started this blog to sound the alarm. For the most part, the warnings have been rejected, dismissed, and even mocked, but I believe the evidence presented here shows we are on track to see the fulfillment of everything God has revealed.

There are even some prophetic websites who refuse to post warnings of trouble ahead, opting to post only uplifting, encouraging words showing a bright future ahead. Some people have kindly referred to it as prophecy-lite, but I see no difference between them and the false prophets who rejected the words of Jeremiah and had him thrown into a mud pit (Jeremiah 38:6). The mud pits have morphed into verbal assaults, labeling anyone who reports what God revealed as “gloom and doom prophets.” Yet, how do they explain the scriptures, which are filled with many dire warnings of trouble coming before the Lord returns? The Bible includes both encouraging promises and dire warnings. Since God gave us both, He must know we need both.

Anyone who tells only the blessings without the warnings is in error because they contradict the scriptures. Their motives should be questioned and their ministry should be challenged. If they refuse to receive correction, I encourage anyone sitting under their ministry to get up and leave. The worst thing we can do is to continue tolerating and even supporting their disobedience.

For those whose eyes and ears have been opened to know the lateness of the hour, I pray God would consume us with holy zeal until we can no long remain silent. Let’s stand up and confront the abominable spirit of compromise now filling our churches. By all means, stop sending financial support to the harlots who bow down to these lying devils. God is able to show us better places to send our tithes and offerings, perhaps an orphanage or an elderly widow who needs help.

I pray God would destroy every man-made religious institution and replace them with a new breed of prophets who will fearlessly proclaim every detail of what God tells them to say. Then God will restore unity to the remnant of faithful believers who have refused to bow down to the unclean spirit of Babylon, which is the spirit of confusion filling so many of our leaders.

17 “Therefore, come out from their midst and be separate,” says the Lord. “And do not touch what is unclean; and I will welcome you.
18 “And I will be a father to you, and you shall be sons and daughters to Me,” says the Lord Almighty. (2 Corinthians 6:17-18)

Go forth from Babylon! Flee from the Chaldeans! Declare with the sound of joyful shouting, proclaim this, send it out to the end of the earth; say, “The Lord has redeemed His servant Jacob.” (Isaiah 48:20)

Hard to believe how quickly we have changed from marriage between a man and woman to gay marriage, transgenders and courts ruling crosses that have stood for decades must come down because of offending a small group of very LOUD people. One woman in Minnesota was not even told about her minor son’s sex change, not required by the government for minors to get parental consent for medical treament. Obama opened the gay can of worms in this country and look at how it has infected America. He also pushed his gay agenda across the world but not every nation accepted it. Of course, we don’t condone mistreatment of anyone but neither should we be required to applaud behaviors in contradiction of God’s word. Donald Trump was elected because his agenda more closely aligned with the standards of the Lord, i.e., Pro life, Pro Israel, Pro Christianity. It’s time to pray and Stand, Stand, and after we have done all, Stand!

Excellent research, James. Keep up the great work. I know of no other place where so much prophecy is so well documented with discernment for our time

it’s almost like a multiple-divide (using a circular pie). First a great divide between real Christians and the world, then sub-divides in Christian Denominationalism. Then further divides between the true untaught or baby Christians that are caught up in causal Christianity versus those who are deeply grafted into the Vine. When the Remnant cries out about sin and living the N.T. Spirit life, and the rest of those in the Christian pie aren’t listening……it’s so disheartening …..Shalom Matt

This is probably your strongest gift: glueing evething together, so the complete picture becomes more and more clearer. Thanks James.

Very good post. I’ve often wondered about those who claim prophetic ministry but only speak good things. I know the Lord gives us hope and encourages us along the way but so much of the scripture warns us and speaks of judgment and Christ himself spent a great deal of time preparing his disciples for persecution and even death. The false prophets that always preach good words and lull the people to sleep do them a great disservice in not preparing them for Jesus to return and the upheaval that is coming.

Damascus a ruinous heap!

Russia, Iran, and Hez’bollah and the U.S. face off now on the Golan Heights. They’re about to attack Israel, with certain elements of the U.S. military helping them. Once that kicks off, incoming nukes from Russian and Chinese submarines just off our coasts now.

Praise Jesus Name!

James, thank you so much brother for your attention to the words and visions / dreams that the Lord has given you. I was deeply moved by Brother David Wilkerson back in my generation and on one occasion in 1986 after attending a repentance conference convened by his ministry, the Lord put before me a choice, “Do you want your ministry or my ministry?” David preached a message on “Silent Judgment” in those days that referred to the Zadok priesthood and the other Levitical priesthood that were following the routines of ministry. Zadok was different, and like Caleb had a “different spirit.” I believe that same choice is happening today. I appreciate your candor and openness in spite of negative responses. Keep pressing in and forward, my brother, because the days are short!

Leviticus 26:20-22
Your strength will be spent in vain, because your soil will not yield its crops, nor will the trees of your land yield their fruit.
“‘If you remain hostile toward me and REFUSE to listen to me, I will multiply your afflictions SEVEN times over, as your sins deserve. I will send wild animals against you, and they will rob you of your children, destroy your cattle and make you so few in number that your roads will be deserted.

These verses and similar ones are hardly ever preached, only the BLESSINGS (because of the “shepherds” LOVE money more than GOD).
