For some background information on the site design and functional changes, go here.

June 1, 2024 I've been working on a comprehensive presentation of the critical studies of prophecy as I've come to understand it. While I've found it difficult to figure out the best order to present things, I'm also finding it difficult to distill all the details. What I thought would be short presentations are blossoming into larger than expected studies with many details the more I attempt to distill it. Please pray for clarity and guidance for me. I'm consistently amazed with the detail laid out in scripture and I'm excited to share this detail with anyone with ears to hear, but I also feel overwhelmed at times.
My tentative title for the overall series is what I came to before when I wanted to present the overarching prophetic narrative. HIStory, Our Future: Pearls for the Bride. Much of the presentation is spread throughout this site, but the goal is to have episode pages with references to anything presented.
November 11, 2023 I’ve completed a rework of the 70 Weeks of Daniel study to include references to some of the more recent studies as well as rework to include more from the Daniel 9 rework.
November 5, 2023 I’ve completed a rework of the abomination of desolation study to include some more detail defining what the abomination of desolation is. This is a critical point upon which hinges the defining of the beginning of the end according to Christ. Matthew 24:15 | Mark 13:14
October 7, 2023 I’ve completed the initial rewrite of the Daniel 2, Daniel 7, Daniel 8, Daniel 11-12, Revelation 12, Revelation 13, and Revelation 17-18 pages. My next goal is to rework the Fourth Kingdom page as a kind of consolidation of all of these visions of Daniel and John in hopes of revealing some insights regarding history, the future, and the rise and future kingdom of the dragon and his man of sin.
September 26, 2023 I’ve just completed a re-dive into the interpretation of the prophecies of Daniel 2, 7, 8, 11,12, Revelation 12, 13, 17, and 18 and things are really starting to make more sense than they have before. The more I dig into the Word with a Hebrew perspective and focus on Israel and the land the more it becomes clear this is the subject of most of it. In the past I went with the common interpretations of a revived Roman Empire and the woman riding the beast, a very Westernized view of it. What didn’t quite make sense has really come together and I will be working on finalizing updates to this site.

The study is expansive as it covers both history and the future over many of the symbolic and cryptic passages. I will likely be updating the HIStory, Our Future: Fourth Kingdom page to include all the information. Before I write it all out though, I want to share how I came to my breakthrough in understanding how this all fits together and encourage you to do the same on your own. Clearly Daniel 2 and Revelation 12, 13 and 17 speak to a series of kingdoms and kings over time. So I decided to lay these out in columns for those kingdsom and rows for each chapter giving the vision, interpretation, historical record where these would seem to fit, and just some of my comments related to all of this. It’s still a work in progress, but you can see the chart here. I think you will see how this layout helps to be able to piece the various chapters together.

Related to this, I just completed a re-write of the woman riding the beast page and one of the insights I gained related to that was the two women of Revelation. You have the Revelation 12 woman, who is seen giving birth to the Messiah and later being rescued from the unparalleled time of Jacob’ s trouble. She would seem to be the faithful Israel.

On the other hand you see the woman riding the beast, mystery Babylon, the harlot drunk on the blood of the saints. This is Jerusalem and the seat of the man of sin and his followers. And the kings of the earth fornicate with her and drink with her of her cup of her wrath. These both seem to symbolize Israel, but two different decisions of her people. Those who flee the antichrist and those who follow him. Zechariah 13:8-9
August 30, 2023 I’ve started posting on message boards again. I should have been doing that for some time as it’s virtual communion with other believers and it allows me to learn and grow in God’ s Word. At any rate if you want to join in, I’ve been posting on Worthy Christian forum and the Messiah 2030 forum to sharpen some iron with other believers and get closer to understanding God’s plan for His people.

It has been a very eye-opening time trying to understand others’ perspectives and try to explain my own and the reasons behind what I believe. I have a lot to learn, but this is a great way to do that!
April 14, 2023 I’ve added a page for the Messiah 2030 video and my review/thoughts on it. Still a lot to think about and check on, but very interesting stuff! As with most things, I have some differing opinions based on my research, but I’m still learning and open to and in the process of re-examining my stances on things always.
April 8, 2023 Due to my recent discoveries of the 2030 videos, a little late to the party, I wanted to nail down from my own research what I could for the timing of the crucifixion, which just so happened to be in the season. Some of the things I had researched previously that were on my page I had forgotten until after I started updating the Passover page, but it was a very good exercise.

I started by focusing on the scriptures surrounding the spring feasts, taking into account a couple things. The Hebrew calendar is lunar, which means the 1st and 15th days will have new and full moons respectively. Also the "day" begins at sundown and ends at sundown in accordance with creation. This gave me the days of the month of Abib/Nisan for aquiring the lamb, Passover (preparation), Unleavened Bread, Firstfruits and Shavuot. The fact that the tomb was found empty on Sunday then locked in the day of the week. Using the Rosetta Calendar, which admittedly can be off, and the lunar phases, one year stood out and matched the days of the week from scripture, 30 AD. It sill doesn’ t quite match with some sources on the birth of Christ on September 11, 3 BC and His ministry starting around age 30 and lasting for 3.5 years so I’ ll have to dig into that a little more again. Here’ s the chart I put together as I was trying to sort this out.
April 2, 2023 I’ve recently been going through a journey that many of you have probably already seen in the past regarding the creation days, 2 Peter 3:8 and the plan of God for mankind. I came across two different presentations on this that I ultimately disagree with the conclusion on what the timing points to, but still some fascinating information. I first watched Messiah 2030 and then after that came across the Berisheet Sabbath Prophecy video from some years back. It’s a very compelling idea I’m still chewing on.

I heard something though that I had also never heard that I think is profoundly amazing looking at the name of God from the Old Testament, YAHWH.

I also was prompted by a reader from the site regarding the timing of the framework and Christ’s 3 1/2 year ministry and 40 days in the wilderness fasting. Thinking on the temptations of Christ brought to mind a passage that I always tied to being kept from God’s wrath, but may have a different meaning if not speaking of the same time frame. Revelation 3:10 Check out the hour of temptation and see what you think. I also added it to the great tribulation page.
December 29, 2022 It’s been a while and I’ve been feeling very drawn to return and clean up, continue studying and update the site. My plan is to eliminate old thoughts that I no longer hold and focus less on surrounding events for definitional pages like the great tribulation, time of Jacob’s trouble, etc. Events that are related in some way will remain linked in the related button, but I will focus more on the sequence of events and my thoughts about how the definitional pages relate in the Coming Times page.
October 24, 2021 I updated the Coming Times page to add a little detail to what I’ve been adding to the Fourth Kingdom page. My revisit to these pages conincided with a new multi-part series Chris White is presenting, A Bible Prophecy Timeline, on what he is looking at for the coming times, a timely release as I’ve been feeling led to revisit and update these pages and clarify some things. His work as really clarified some things for me and understanding is really starting to click in with all the pieces I’ve been trying to follow. I highly recommend his work, which is much more detailed than this site.
October 16, 2021 I put together some thoughts on Dimensions of Existence, triggered partially from discussions by Stephen C. Meyer and thoughts I’ve been mulling over for years. I’ve tried to put together some information in the related topics section that is good for visual learners like me and is helpful because dimensions we can’t perceive are difficult to wrap ones head around, if even possible at this point. Some of the implications for a spiritual realm are intriguing to dwell upon and I believe starts to create a scientific link to the spiritual. From a Biblical perspective, in truth we live in a limited existence and there are things that no eye has seen nor ear heard and what we might perceive as miracles could just be dimensions we cannot perceive invading what we can. It could also explain “spiritual” experiences that people try to put into words but never quite can. Anyway, it’s not meant to be difinitive by any means on the topic, just a way to view Biblical reality, the spiritual world without having to throw out or be opposed to modern science. After all, the scientific method by definition limits itself to the dimensions we exist in so it will never be sufficient to go beyond that. For that we’ll have to wait for eternity and our incorruptible bodies. 1 Corinthians 15:50-58
June 8, 2021 I updated the Millennium page on 5/31/21 after starting to update another page... Squirrel! And further updated it today.
May 25, 2021 Made some updates to the Gog and Magog page, which is pretty much done at this point. I’m also going to be working on the various Antichrist theories pages and trying to put together some kind of way to see relevant pages through the prism of the various theories. My views have changed over time, but I feel it’s important to still keep the theories in place and to understand and point out where and how they can change perspectives. The issue is that some of them are pretty big paradigm shifts and affect many different topics and change the possibilities so over time I hope to be able to devote a little more time to completing that.
May 2, 2021 The past few years my job has taken over my life and I haven’t been able to spend the time needed to continue fixing and updating the site. As I’ve continued to slowly research and stew on things, I’ve also started seeing a different paradigm that really changes a lot of other expectations of what’s to come and so I’m trying to think of how to present the various perspectives I’ve learned and how each affects the broader picture across the many topical pages. There’s a lot of cleanup needed and once I determine the easiest way to absorb how it’s presented I will work on updating things.

I have again updated The Coming Times page to focus on my current thoughts on what to watch for related to that paradigm shift. For more detail on that, I recommend reading Chris White’s book False Christ | Will the Antichrist Claim to Be the Jewish Messiah?

I have also found a replacement for my audio playlist player that can be self-contained in the site in case it needs to move elsewhere. However, a lot of the files are old and may no longer be relevant, if they ever were, and were not stored with the site so aren’t accessible. I’ve at least gotten the player working however.
August 27, 2017 The Coming Times:
This page is really always going to be a work in progress, but I’ve started updating it to eliminate some of the old information that I no longer believe is accurate and update the format a little.
August 7, 2017 The Temple in Jerusalem:
One of the first elements of future prophecy I expect to see in the future is the rebuilding of a temple in Jerusalem by the Jews. As described in Daniel’s 70 Weeks prophecy, and referred to by Christ (Matthew 24:15-28 | Mark 13:14-23) and John (Revelation 11:1-2), this is central to the first solid events of the future that the Bible spells out for us. While the Seals precede these events, there’s nothing solid like the events describing the abomination of desolation, the following time of Jacob’s trouble and that tie to Daniel 9:27 to fall back on. With the framework of exact days in prophecy, we’re given a general glimpse of the events of the 70th week, and while we’re not in darkness, we still see through a glass darkly so to speak. As such we are not in darkness, but we still won’t know the day or hour of the sudden destruction following this time or our gathering to meet the Lord in the air prior to that wrath of God. And so, the temple being the first requirement to fulfill the future prophecies and the others being somewhat vague or affected by interpretation, I look to the temple in Jerusalem as the next potential sign that must come to pass before the events of Bible prophecy quickly come to pass in succession after.
July 17, 2017 Ezekiel 38 & 39:
Following some further study prompted by Chris White’s study on Ezekiel 38 & 39, and further reading his book False Christ: Will the Antichrist Claim to be the Jewish Messiah?, I’ve changed my previous view somewhat on the timing of this series of events. I’m still open to the possibility that a false perception of fulfillment could happen leading to the rebuilding of the temple, but based on my own re-examination of scripture I side with Chris White’s view of these chapters, that they will happen after the millennium when Satan is loosed one last time.
July 1, 2017 It’s been some time since I’ve updated the web page. Part of this is purposeful and part is life. As far as life goes, work and family became more of a focus. I was spending much of my time focused on news and updates and decided as part of re-focusing I was going to take a break. During this time I decided that I was going to focus less on news events since that is a full time job with how crazy everything is. Instead I’m going back to basics and revisiting and expanding my studies of other areas such as the various antichrist theories and what events could be next on the horizon. I’m also looking to expand on previous research with the goal of providing a cliff notes look at history in light of prophecy and scripture with links to more detailed studies by those much more capable than I. As such this website is less of a news resource and more of a prophecy and Bible study resource, which is what it started out as in the first place.

So check back to this page to see any updates to particular areas of study and I’ll try to link the various linked pages that are updated as a result. As I mentioned a couple years ago below, if there are any broken links, let me know and I’ll try to resolve them.
April 23, 2015 While the website may not look that much different, the structure and content have changed somewhat. If you had a page bookmarked and now it isn’t there, it may have just been renamed or moved elsewhere. Send me a request and I’ll try to redirect you. You can see a list of changes to the website that you may or may not have noticed.
