Prophetic analysis of 2019, a significant year in bible prophecy fulfillments. Its key events are already shaping 2020.
Thrilled to have you back for this Recap of the Top 7 Prophetic Events that took place in 2019.2020 will be a very big year prophetically, as big as 2015 was. These 7 events helped shape the prophetic outcomes we’ll see in 2020 that I’ll be discussing shortly in a Prophetic Outlook for 2020. But we need this foundation to really understand what will be happening this year.
#1: The Burning of Notre Dame:
As far as I’m concerned, the first significant event of 2019 was the burning of Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, France. This event is extremely significant for several reasons, let’s review them quickly.
The fire at Notre Dame is a harbinger of judgment upon Rome, spiritual Babylon. Listen to what the Bible says in Revelation 17:1-2: “Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and talked with me, saying to me, “Come, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot who sits on many waters,with whom the kings of the earth committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth were made drunk with the wine of her fornication.” Great Babylon was being warned that soon she will come in judgment before God: “And great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of His wrath” (Revelation 16:19). “Therefore her plagues will come in one day—death and mourning and famine. And she will be utterly burned with fire, for strong is the Lord God who judges her.” (Revelation 18:8).
The fire at Notre Dame took place on April 15, 2019. That was the 10th day of Nissan on the Hebrew calendar. The 10th of Nissan is the first day of the Passover Feast, when the children of Israel would choose the Passover lamb that would be offered in sacrifice to the Lord. It had to be a young male lamb, perfectly healthy, without spot or blemish of any kind. I believe the Lord was making two points here: First, that He still operates according to His calendar, His calendar is extremely relevant for prophetic fulfillments. Second, He was telling Babylon you’ll be punished for interfering with the work of the Lamb. During those four days between the selection of the lamb on the 10th of Nissan and the sacrificial offering on the 14th of Nissan, each Hebrew family was to build a relationship with this lamb that was in their home and would be offered in propitiation for their sins. The Roman Catholic Church has replaced Jesus with a number of other substitute mediators who have no divine authority or recognition. This has separated God’s people from Jesus, and Rome will pay dearly for that transgression.
I’ve explained at great length in another podcast called “The US and France in Bible Prophecy”, that the burning of Notre Dame is a parallel event with the collapse of the Twin Towers in New York on 9/11. Both monuments represent or represented scepters of power. The Twin Towers represented the secular or political scepter of power, the financial, economic and political dominion of the US superpower over the world. Notre Dame represented the religious or spiritual scepter of power, the control over the Church. Thus, together they represent both aspects of God’s kingdom: the territory, which is the earth, and the subjects, which is the Church. By this bold strike Satan was affirming that the world was already securely in his pocket, and that he was now taking over the Church as well.
The burning of Notre Dame was a signal that the old regime (i.e. the governance model of the constitutional republic) was over, and that a new regime is about to begin, the New World Order. Notre Dame represents not only the Roman Catholic Church, but also France. In history, France and the US were the two nations by whose actions the absolute power of the monarchy – whether papal or royal – was overthrown. Their respective revolutions were quite different but they were almost contemporary and had one common enemy: the monarchy. They were the two witnesses standing in agreement whereby it was possible to establish the current governance model, the democratic constitutional republic. In our generation, we’re going to see the downfall of the constitutional republic and the formal emergence of the last world kingdom before Jesus comes, the New World Order. History will be repeated. Both France and the US will be protagonists in the drama and will each go through a painful revolutionary process exactly as they did in the 18th. century.
#2: Hurricane Dorian destroys the Bahamas
Hurricane Dorian, a Category 5 hurricane, made landfall on the Bahamas on September 1st. The hurricane utterly destroyed two of the Bahamas islands. Key things to point out about this hurricane:
- Its behavior was totally abnormal. It stalled over the islands for nearly a full day, with winds hovering between 120 and 175 miles per hour. Its movement was slower than your walk or mine. In other words, anyone of us could walk faster than that hurricane was moving. That kind of behavior is abnormal for a storm that size with such strong winds.
- Personally, I believe that Hurricane Dorian was an engineered weather event, manufactured in perfect timing for the upcoming Climate Strike programmed for September 27.
- The big demonstration that the world needed to see was twofold: the terrifying intensity of the weather event, and the aftermath. The Bahamas were among the most prosperous of the Caribbean islands. Now the place is in total ruins. It will take years and many billions of dollars to rebuild and restore. Lawlessness has taken over as residents of that island fight over water, food and shelter.
- Lastly, I’ve taken Hurrican Dorian as an emblem for all the other manufactured weather events that happened during the course of the year: 1) the devastating forest fires in the Amazon, California, Canada, Congo, Russia and Australia; 2) the obviously engineered fake winter storms that occurred in several different countries (these are produced by a technology called artificial ice nucleation for weather modification), to name just a couple.
#3: Global Climate Strike
On September 27, the whole world went on a climate strike. The purpose of the strike was to pressure the governments of the world to take immediate and drastic action to comply with the Paris Climate Agreement and save the planet.
Greta Thunberg came to NY for the UN Climate Summit held that same week. The children, youth and labor unions turned out in high numbers. The Pope of course gave his blessing, seeing that the Paris Climate Agreement is an outgrowth of his Laudato Si encyclical published in 2015.
The apocalyptic marches had millions of people across the globe chanting “time is up”, “we’re running out of time”, “the planet doesn’t have much time left”. Some carried signs saying we have 7 years left, or 5 years left, or 3… Could that be a message that God’s church needs to hear? Have the children of the world become wiser than the children of light?
I want to add here a quick comment about France. France is completely in a state of turmoil. During 2019 the Yellow Vest revolutionary movement merged with the climate activists and have become one large anti-government coalition. There’ve been a lot of violent protests in the streets. The masses in France hate President Macron as much as they hated King Louis XV and for months have been calling for his resignation. The latest protest and riots had to do with a reform that Macron wants to implement on the French retirement system that has the labor unions up in arms. I believe this popular movement will become a general uprising that sooner or later will be squashed by UN forces and this ultimately will lead into the New World Order.
#4: Pope’s Convocation for May 2020 in Rome
The Pope seized the effervescence of the climate strike and a few days before the UN Climate Summit, the Pope announced the formation of a global coalition for a new education. He called upon leaders in each country, not only political leaders but leaders in every walk of life – religion, sports, arts, health, industry, media, etc. – to join him in Rome in May 2020 to kick-off this alliance.
The stated goal is to form a new educational alliance “between earth’s inhabitants and their common home” – clearly a reference to the planetary climate issue. It’s no accident that this gathering will take place exactly 5 years after Laudato Si was launched.
The Pope stressed that the goal was to re-educate the world and create a “global change of mentality”. That’s doublespeak for “brainwash and indoctrinate” the world, especially the youth, to accept the New World Order that Pope Francis and the Jesuits are shortly going to impose. This is why he stressed that people needed a new way to envisage the economy.
The Pope has worked tirelessly to united all religions and nations around a broad platform that he calls a “new humanism”. Mother Miriam, a Catholic nun who has a radio program on the Catholic Radio Network, strongly criticized the Pope’s invitation saying that the Pope’s new humanism would completely wipe out Christianity, destroy the family, and ruin society. Why would it have such devastating effects? Because humanism is the uplifting of human reason and principles against divine order and principles.
The Pope said another goal is to overcome divisions and antagonism and to work together for the “common good”. That expression “the common good” is loaded with meaning. In Catholic speak the “common good” is usually associated with Sunday observance. The Pope’s climate encyclical promotes Sunday rest as a key measure to halt climate change. And the Catholic catechism states that all Christians should seek recognition of Sunday as a universal day of rest and a legal holiday.
The bottom line is this: The Global Educational Alliance is the cultural glue – notice I didn’t say religious glue, but cultural glue – that will establish in the minds of the people the Sunday Law, that is to say, the mark of the beast.
Clearly brothers and sisters, just as Hitler launched a massive propaganda and re-education program to get people’s unconditional support, so the Jesuit Order is going to brainwash the world into unconditional acceptance of the New World Order economy, values and lifestyles, including enforced Sunday observance.
Let me highlight one last very important connection regarding the Pope’s invitation to Rome this coming May 14. Please don’t miss this. This convocation is intended to be a victory rally that will consolidate the Pope’s power and authority that he will already have by May 14. The Pope expects to be in a position of power and authority by then. Big changes are on the way!
Let me go back to my point about Hitler. These types of victory rallies were yearly events held during 15 years by the Nazi Party in Germany. Let’s read from Wikipedia: “They were large propaganda events, especially after Adolf Hitler’s rise to power. These events were held at the Nazi party rally grounds in Nuremberg from 1933 to 1938 and are usually referred to in English as the “Nuremberg Rallies”. Many films were made to commemorate them… There were also two sets of official books covering the rallies”. The books contained the proceedings, key speeches, etc. Brothers and sisters, rest assured that the Vatican is going to follow all the “best practices” of the Nazi Party in the planning, preparation and delivery of this mega-event.
Listen closely now to the next key prophetic outcome of 2019 because it’s closely connected to the Rome/Nuremberg rally.
#5: Counterfeit Global Revival
There is a false global revival underway, with many revival events across the world orchestrated to culminate in the spring and summer of 2020.
How do we know that we’re witnessing a counterfeit revival?
- Attraction to what is new, startling, and sensationalistic, such as mega-gatherings of tens of thousands of believers
- -ppeals to the imagination and the emotions, gratification of the senses: great music, spectacular lights, busy stage, and exaltation of the experience above reason
- A lack of true repentance and reformation: no sorrow for sin, no changed life
- All the above are caused by the absence of serious study of the Word of God
Kanye West’s Sunday Service movement that began in October is having a great influence across the evangelical world in the US. He’s being invited to bring his “Sunday Service” performances to prominent mega-churches such as Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church in Houston. These performances are more like pagan rituals featuring music and dance, than sanctified worship in Spirit and in truth.
There was also a huge revival conference in Pensacola Florida called “Light the Fire”. Hard not to think of Revelation 13:13 where, speaking of Apostate Protestantism, the Bible says: And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men”.
Looking at this year, numerous ministries across the world are coming together to organize mega-events mobilizing hundreds of thousands of believers across the world. Let me name just a few of these events:
- Kingdom Come South Africa – Feb 2020
- March 1 – April 9 Jesus 40-day Fast
- Brazil Go 2020 – May 2020
- Africa’s largest gospel campaign – May 2020
- Great convocation to Europe “Come back to Europe” – Summer 2020
- Kansas City (70000 believers) – October 2020
What is happening here is extremely important because it’s setting the stage for Satan’s counterfeit appearing where he will be impersonating Jesus Christ. Let me read you a statement by Ellen White in the book “True Revival”:
“Before the final visitation of God’s judgments upon the earth there will be among the people of the Lord such a revival of primitive godliness as has not been witnessed since apostolic times. The Spirit and power of God will be poured out upon His children. At that time many will separate themselves from those churches in which the love of this world has supplanted love for God and His Word. Many, both of ministers and people, will gladly accept those great truths which God has caused to be proclaimed at this time to prepare a people for the Lord’s second coming. TR 19.2
The enemy of souls desires to hinder this work; and before the time for such a movement shall come, he will endeavor to prevent it by introducing a counterfeit. In those churches which he can bring under his deceptive power he will make it appear that God’s special blessing is poured out; there will be manifest what is thought to be great religious interest. Multitudes will exult that God is working marvelously for them, when the work is that of another spirit. Under a religious guise, Satan will seek to extend his influence over the Christian world.” TR 19.3
Brothers and sisters, this is extremely serious. Anyone who receives Satan’s spirit before God pours out His Holy Spirit will be prevented from receiving the Latter Rain, putting them at great risk of eternal loss.
We need to pray fervently that the Lord will soon pour out His Spirit upon us and not allow us to be deceived. If you haven’t yet listened to my latest two podcasts about Satan’s counterfeit Second Coming, you definitely want to do that. The Lord has given us three serious warnings about Satan’s counterfeit of Christ’s coming. We need to listen and obey.
#6: UN Climate Summit in Madrid
The UN held its second climate summit in Madrid. It was supposed to take place in Chile but because of the political protests and other social unrest in Chile the Chilean president asked the UN to take the summit elsewhere.
(By the way, this is the state of the world right now. This social unrest is spreading to all countries. The Jesuits are creating havoc in all countries in preparation for the new regime. Where possible they’re displacing anti-globalist leaders and replacing them with globalists. In other countries they’re content to create chaos because in contrast their New World Order will appear like a haven of peace and safety. But we know what happens: when they say peace and safety, then sudden destruction comes upon them unexpectedly).
Anyway, back to Madrid. This climate summit was DOA or Dead on Arrival. The meeting extended two days beyond the planned end. After much negotiation the delegates were not able to get any major concessions from the leading countries.
Listen to these two headlines about the Madrid summit:
- “Europe ‘disappointed’ with COP25’s mediocre outcome”
- “Pope vents frustration over lack of political will to implement ‘Laudato Si’”
Let me read you a quote from The Guardian, where they in turn are quoting Pope Francis:
“The climate emergency is a “challenge of civilization” requiring sweeping changes to economic systems, but political leaders have not done enough”, the pope has said in a message to governments meeting at the annual climate summit in Madrid.
“We must seriously ask ourselves if there is the political will to allocate with honesty, responsibility and courage, more human, financial and technological resources [to the climate crisis],” he said in the pontifical message, which was welcomed by activists.”
Don’t take this statement lightly. It’s bad news! When I first heard the Pope’s declarations it gave me the chills because I knew what he was saying between the lines. Let me translate for you what he was saying between the lines:
Because the nations, especially the leading nations, are not making any strides in implementing Laudato Si, the Pope would confer with his god, Satan, in order to hard line the nations into submission through ever more catastrophic natural disasters. What has already begun to happen is described in Daniel 11:39: “He (read anti-christ) will attack the mightiest fortresses (read the strong nations) with the help of a foreign god (read Satan) and will greatly honor those who acknowledge him.”
Brothers and sisters, the Pope has already gone before Satan asking for help to bring down the mighty nations of the earth. They’ll be brought to their knees by a dramatic increase in the number, frequency and intensity of natural disasters and calamities by air, land and sea. This is how the nations, led by the US, will hand over the scepter of power to the Pope.
Brothers and sisters, the “climate terrorism” has already started. Australia is burning to the ground! Over 20 Million acres of Australian forest land have burned at the moment this podcast is being recorded, 500 Million wild animals have perished and over 25 people are dead. My heart goes out to the Australian people. I love Australia and the Aussies. I spent five weeks there quite a while back. Visited Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, and was out in the bush and the Blue Mountains. I’m praying over this situation.
I’m in Puerto Rico right now taking care of my mom. For the past couple of days we’ve been having some pretty intense earthquakes, 6.6 and 6.4 tremors on the Richter Scale. So far, the damage hasn’t been too severe. A beautiful natural landmark collapsed, a historic Catholic church that was a big tourist attraction was destroyed (interesting!) and apparently one person is dead and several others injured. Praise God that His hand of protection is upon us! A number of other neighboring countries are also being affected by this earthquake spell: the poor Bahamas again, British Virgin Islands, Dominican Republic, St. Maarten, Guadeloupe, Haiti, Saint Kits, Caicos Islands, Barbuda and Anguilla.
Who knows what other disasters Satan has up his sleeve to afflict the rest of the developed nations, those that are expected to make a larger contribution to the reduction in greenhouse gases. It’ll only be a very short time before they’re all on their knees and the Pope is asked to take over.
#7: Donald Trump’s Impeachment
There’s a lot to say about the political trial of Donald Trump, but I’ll keep it to headlines:
- Trump was impeached by the US House of Representatives on two counts:
- Abuse of power in his conversations with the Ukranian president
- Obstruction of Congress’ investigation
- The next step is for the US Senate to hear the case and cast their vote as to whether Trump is guilty or innocent
- The House of Representatives speaker, Nancy Pelosi, needs to call a vote in order to send across the two articles of impeachment to the Senate. No one knows when she will do that ,which of course determines when the Senate trial would take place. She has leadership meetings with her team this week so the press is expecting to know her plan fairly soon.
- President Trump and his team are busy planning his defense.
There is no doubt in anyone’s mind that if Trump ran for re-election this year, which of course he will, he would win. Many argue that this is why the Democrats, the opposing party that control the Senate, want to take him out through impeachment.
The latest complication in this trial is the President’s attack on Iran. The Democrats are now accusing him of declaring war upon another country without consulting the House. They don’t discard adding yet another article of impeachment to the previous two. Others believe this is the President wanting to show himself strong in the midst of opposition by taking down a key Iranian terrorist. Yet others think this is a big distraction so that we’ll take our eyes off what’s really happening behind the scenes.
Brothers and sisters, what really matters to us as Christians is this: Trump means trumpet. The Lord is using Donald Trump as a trumpet to sound the alarm on three important events:
- Impending judgment on America
- Impending war and/or revolution (a form of judgment by the sword)
- The beginning of the judgment of the living
The Beginning of the Judgment of the Living
The beginning of the judgment of the living will be signaled to us by the passing of the National Sunday Law in the US. This second warning of judgment indicates that the passing of the National Sunday Law is imminent.
Remember that 2019 started with the Notre Dame fire, another trumpet warning spiritual Babylon of her impending judgment. The year closed with Donald Trump’s impeachment trial, a warning for us, a type and shadow of the investigative judgment going on in heaven which is about to transition from the judgment of the dead to the judgment of the living. Clearly the Lord is saying: wake up and listen up to the blowing of the trumpet. Your probation is soon to close.
Every person still alive in this generation will have to pass the Sabbath obedience test. No one is excluded. Ellen White says that each one of us will be tested individually, not in groups. We’ll each be tested as though there were not one other person on the earth.
Let me try to explain how critical this obedience test is. Failure of this test is disqualifying. Worse, you’ll get the mark of the beast, receive the horrendous seven last plagues, and burn in hell fire until you’re consumed. The Bible says in the Book of Ezekiel, when the righteous man turns from his righteousness and commits iniquity, all his righteousness will not be remembered him. Only his iniquity will be remembered. If you fail the Sabbath test, all your previous good works are automatically rendered null and void and you’ll receive the deadly mark.
Brothers and sisters, this test is very nearly upon us. The question facing us is: Will we be found faithful? Will we confess the name of Jesus, so that He may confess our names before the Father and the holy angels? Will we endure until the end? Are we able to say like Job: “When He has tested me I shall come forth as gold”?
As this podcast is released, Puerto Rico continues to experience earthquakes of significant severity, affecting mainly the south of this island. Puerto Rico is still recovering from Hurricane Maria which struck the island two years ago. Australian bush fires are still raging under red skies, with all of their devastating consequences for Australian people and animals as well as the entire world.
