Four key Prophetic Events and Markers for 2017
Robert Rite (1/29/17) – In this update, we will review recent and current events and certain supernatural and prophetic signs for 2017. You may want to read this message in its entirety!
When we look at things from a heavenly perspective rather than a worldly view, then all the chaos that we are witnessing today throughout the world can make more sense. That said, remember this prediction:
“2017 will be a very prophetic year relative to end time events”
Let’s begin with some events in 2016 with possible end time association:
2016 Prophetic Events
Let me premise by reminding you that all end time prophecies are Israel Centric because the final battle of this age will culminate in Israel (The valley of Megiddo). Also as discussed in prior messages, God has put His name in Jerusalem and Israel (Numbers 6:27). Contrary to what the U.N. and the nations think, Jerusalem BELONGS to GOD – NOT to the Kingdoms of the World! With that in mind, lets begin.
1) Record Terrorism – 2016 was a year of record terror attacks throughout the world, including escalating nuclear threats by North Korea and other nations. I believe that death by terrorism in 2016, once tallied up, will surpass the 28,328 deaths due to terror in 2015.
2) Celestial Signs – a major end time prophecy reveals that at the time of the end there will be a great sign in the heavens regarding the constellation Virgo. On 11/20/2016 Jupiter (referred to as the “King” star) enters Virgo’s womb and for the first time in recorded history maintains a circular motion in Virgo for ten months. 11/20/16 was the beginning of the Revelation 12:1 end time sign which I shall expound on.
3) Election Wars: Most people believed the year 2016 would be the most important election for mankind, and as we will discuss, President Trump could indeed be presiding during a time referred to as the tribulation period; just as many prophecy scholars believe that the current Pope is the last Pope. I will also address the concern of some that Trump is the antichrist.
4) 2016 was the warmest year on record – Those who see things in a worldly fashion call it “global warming”; but those of us with a heavenly perspective call it “Gods Warning“.
5) On 12/23/16 – UN resolution 2334, an evil resolution was drafted specifically against Israel on 12/23/16, which happened to be the beginning of the Christian and Jewish holy season (Christmas and Hanukkah)! What a slap in the face for all of Christianity and Judaism; and as usual the lukewarm church did not rise up from its comatose sleep to object! So feeling emboldened, the U.N. then schemed to convene again in Paris on 1/15/17 to vote to enforce the resolution (covered in the 2017 summary below).
Indeed, the state of world affairs today can only be understood when we consult a greater source; the Word of God. Only then can we discern the evil that is festering right before our very eyes!
2017 – A Year of Prophecy
1) Year of the Messiah – The Hebrews (the religious/observant Jews) refer to the Hebrew year 5777 which in the Gregorian calendar runs from Sep 9, 2016 to sundown October 2nd 2017 as “the year of the Messiah”. 777 is a very Holy number as 777 in the Hebrew alphabet is the number of Yahweh – the God of the Universe, while 666 is the number of the prince of darkness Satan, which includes the coming antichrist and false prophet!
2) 1/20/17 – Donald J. Trump was elected the 45th President of the United States. Regrettably America’s citizens will most likely continue to stay divided, which has been the case for many years, as both parties seem to have opposing views on almost everything. I for one will pray for our new leader, and that our nation moves in the direction that God wants it to go; which should be the only direction that both parties should want as it will keep the enemies evil end time plans in check! But As the scriptures repeatedly warn, if the inhabitants of earth persist in putting their trust solely on their political affiliations rather than on God’s precepts, then we will get what we deserve, and that is what is already happening – because from ancient times it was already prophesied to happen!
3) 1/15/2017 – The Paris conference of 70 nations, failed to adopt the enforcement of U.N. resolution 2334 against Israel! Thanks to the fervent prayers of many of God’s people throughout the world, a few nations unexpectedly moved to reject the resolution on the grounds that it was blatantly biased against Israel! Many do not realize that the world dodged a bullet on 1/15/17. I believe deep in my spirit that if this resolution would have been enforced and Israel was forced out of East Jerusalem that would have triggered the curse of Isaiah 24:5-6 because we would have broken God’s “Everlasting Covenant“! Yes folks this is how close we are getting!
4) Signs in the Heavens – Revelation Ch. 12 starts as follows:
“Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars. 2 Then being with child, she cried out in labor and in pain to give birth.” Rev. 12:1-2
This great end time prophecy will come to pass on 9/23/17! This celestial formation began to take shape on 11/20/2016 when the planet Jupiter (referred to as the “King” star) entered Virgo’s womb. On 9/23/17, 12 stars will align with the constellation Virgo, with the sun positioned on her head and the moon at her feet. The 9 stars of “Leo the Lion“ will be in conjunction with Mars, Mercury and Venus. This makes up the 12 stars of Revelation 12:1 and Gen. 37:9-10 (Joseph’s dream).
The last time this sign happened was 5,932 years ago, and it marked the birth of the present age. On the Gregorian calendar the date was August 5th, 3915 BC; roughly the time of Adam and Eve at the Garden of Eden – the cradle of civilization!
So could 9/23/17 be a marker for the beginning of the end of this age?
This celestial sign does NOT necessarily mean that Messiah returns in 2017 or around that date but it is a clear sign that 9/23/2017 is a signal from the Almighty to get ready for the rapture of the church and the apocalypse; as they are imminent! God always reveals His plans to the prophets whenever something BIG that affects all humanity is about to happen as the following passage states:
“Surely the Lord God does nothing, unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets.” Amos 3:7
Is our new President the Antichrist?
Based on the convictions and policies that he ran on and promised, President Trump does not “currently” meet the characteristics of the antichrist (AC). The reasons are fourfold:
1) President Trump is pro-Israel and pro-Christianity. The antichrist (AC) will initiate policies to persecute and kill Jews and Christians.
2) He does NOT harbor a Globalist Agenda like the past four presidents have. He is anti-establishment, Nationalist; and anti-globalization.
The coming antichrist on the other hand – will end nationalism and unite the nations into the end time global government referred to in the prophecies as the “beast kingdom“, and that kingdom will not turn out well for humanity!
3) He is most definitely NOT LOVED the world over, as the antichrist will be.
4) He does not plan on messing with God’s land Israel and Jerusalem as all of the past 5 presidents except for Reagan have tried to do.
I believe that because of his anti-globalism and Pro-Israel posture Trump was put in power for this time by God, not because of any virtuous qualities that he possesses, but because his agenda may actually delay the advancement of the Global government initiatives, and resulting apocalyptic judgments! Remember, it is GOD that appoints kings especially during prophetic times; let’s read:
“And He changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and raises up kings; He gives wisdom to the wise And knowledge to those who have understanding.” Daniel 2:21
That said however, we must pray that our president does not fall prey to the spirit of the enemy like most kings and Presidents in this age have fallen. Satan particularly attacks world leaders, and the church because they are the greatest threat to his kingdom.
But won’t Globalization be Good for Mankind?
When we look at it with worldly eyes a united world seems to make obvious sense, right? But when we look at it in the spiritual realm – it is a SATANIC TRAP, as we will see!
The coming beast kingdom will end nationalism, and all walls and barriers will be replaced with bridges to the cheers of mankind. The president of the coming global government will make some wonderful promises, and like most world leaders of this corrupted world system, he will break them all.
Although Globalization sounds like a panacea, it cannot work in the corrupted world system of this age. The only “globalization” that you want to be part of is the one that is established after the kingdoms of this world are replaced by the kingdom of our Lord!
The Good News
The current events noted, coupled with the great sign in the heavens that will occur in September, indicate that 2017 takes us one giant step closer to the return of Messiah to cleanse the earth of this mess that we have gotten ourselves into, and to bring everlasting peace.
In Closing, we can end all of this destructive division and hatred in our land if people could sear the following scriptures in their heart:
“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:12
“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.” Matt. 5:43-48
Our Lord knew what the condition of the world and of our collective hearts would be like at the time of the end, so He gave us scriptures like these that unlock the keys for enduring peace in a languishing world.
