2022 End Times Countdown
Dr. Stephen Phinney
THE GREAT VANISHING
Can you imagine waking up one morning being faced with what the news calls “The Great Vanishing?” You quickly run to your favorite news source and begin to read story after story of people vanishing from the face of the earth. Your mind does a replay of the warnings you heard from those conservative Christians saying, receive the indwelling Life of Christ before it is too late.
Since you occasionally read the details of this so-called Rapture, you are left with an irreversible panic. While you thought you were a Christian, on this day, you are faced with the reality that you were not. Your eyes are immediately opened to the difference between a Christ-follower and that of those narrow-minded prophetic types of Christians who advocated the indwelling Life of Christ – being filled with the Holy Spirit.
Global humanity as we know it is on a downward spiral, thanks to the relentless cultural shift of Global Socialism – a social, religious, and political movement that promotes illogical and irrationality through the guise of one-world government. That ideology purposefully deceives and makes passive those who don’t have ears to hear absolute Truth. The greatest tragedy is most of the world’s churches adopted the Christ-following misnomers. Who will ultimately be the group that wakes up to the graven theories of The Great Vanishing.
THE REGRESSION OF PROGRESSIVE IDEOLOGIES
Ironically, this progressive ideology is NOT progressive at all. It is regressive. The fleshly patterns of humanity tend to wait until it is too late. Regressive or backward thinking has descended into sheer madness in recent years, sucking humanity down into the Satanic sinkhole of slimy socialistic modalities. The truth of this madness is PRIDE dominates the hearts of those who question what God made clear. To them, prophecies and warnings are individualized interpretations of what God meant by what He said. This results in delusional behavior, depraved, and sustainability for their new world order leader.
Let’s face it. The radical progressivism that our world is fronted is none other than harkening to the voices of self-absorbed, mostly godless communicators and the evil members of the new progressive lies of postmodern irrelevance. Humanity, in general, has become a single society that is far more self-focused and narcissistic than at any time in world history. A society that seeks to destroy the last remaining vestiges of authentic Christianity, God’s moral principles, and everything good that once highlighted real deal, Spirit-filled believers of Christ’s indwelling. Today, authentic indwelt Christians are the insane radicals of humanity.
Many years ago, during my political stint, I received an award from the United Nations – The Annual Leadership Award. As a result of this award, I was appointed a lifetime United Nations World Peace Ambassadorship. While tossing the fancy plaque in the garbage, I decided to keep the Ambassadorship in play. My logic? To continue receiving ongoing news from the UN.
Recently I received a notice that the UN installed a new statue in front of the UN building. The news headlines – “A new giant statue installed outside the United Nations headquarters in Manhattan, New York City, is being likened to an End Times “beast” described by the Apostle John in Revelation 13:2.”
I carefully gathered data on this new happening. The UN’s logic was “A guardian for international peace and security.” The so-called “guardian” is a fusion of a jaguar and eagle, a mouth like a lion, and the claws of a bear. Revelation 13:2 says, “The beast I saw resembled a leopard, but had feet like those of a bear and a mouth like that of a lion. The dragon gave the beast his power and his throne and great authority.”
Furthermore, Daniel was given a similar prophecy. Daniel 7:2-4 reads, “Daniel said: ‘In my vision at night I looked, and there before me were the four winds of heaven churning up the great sea. Four great beasts, each different from the others, came up out of the sea. The first was like a lion, and it had the wings of an eagle. I watched until its wings were torn off and it was lifted from the ground so that it stood on two feet like a human being, and the mind of a human was given to it.’”
I am pretty certain this prophetic move by the UN will do a “fly-by.” Meaning, few will notice this daring action, but fewer “Christians” will recognize the significance of this idolatrous “beast.” As an “insider,” I can tell you there’s nothing innocent about this new statue being placed in the UN’s Visitor’s Square. The UN is actively shifting the world into its one-world government plans. And it will occur – count on it. This is not the time to slumber!
I get why the masses do not pay special attention to prophetic markers. However, I remain clueless as to why most “Christians” don’t see prophecies unfolding in culture, politics, and religious shifts. My only conclusion is each has a darkened mind.
Personally, I believe the UN’s actions introduce a global leader previously chosen and soon to be released upon the earth. Folks, this is their first announcement of this coming leader. Thus, why our ministry will focus our 2022 publications and media on “The 2022 End Times Countdown.”
As many of our readers know, over the past two years, we have produced teaching series on the book of Revelation, the book of Nehemiah, and now a full study on the book of Daniel. While we have a group of faithful readers/viewers, some of the feedback we have received is packed with people who refute the end times warnings. I fear this group will wake up one morning realizing the prophetic warnings offered by God’s prophets were true. However, it will be too late. Many lazy “Christians” believe they will get a second chance after the Rapture. There will NOT be a second chance outside the 144,000 pure bloodline Jews. The Rapture ends the age of Gentiles, as noted by Daniel, John, and others.
According to Hebrew time reckoning, we are now in the 6th millennium – marking the 6,000 years of man. The Orthodox Jews believe that their Massiah will come to save them at the end of their 6th millennium. The question that needs exploring is “Who is this Jewish messiah?”
While we are not given the time stamp on the Rapture, the Seven Year Reign of the Antichrist, or the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, we can only depend upon a generalized time. Remember that today's world functions from the Gregorian calendar, which is much different from the Hebrew calendar. According to Orthodox Jewish scholars, the end of the age of man will occur over the next several Gregorian years. The Orthodox scholars consider the year 2023 within the Gregorian calendar significant. Time will tell, but we aren’t going to waste time trying to figure out times of the epochs. However, we will spend plenty of time announcing the “signs of the times” for interested believers to ready themselves for the Rapture AND awaken the remaining pure bloodline Jews for the Second Coming.
Prophecies take a high view of God’s inspired Word. Few take this high road. Those who ignore the Holy Word’s prophecies deprive themselves of a rich revelational treasure of Divine Truth. God never lies or exaggerates. The Scriptures of God the Father in all His glory and majesty manifest in His prophecies. Each describes Him as Holy, True, Omnipotent, Wise, Sovereign, Eternal, and always accurate. Along with this, He details man’s depravity. Despite experiencing the final outpouring of God’s warnings and devastating wrath and judgment on sinful mankind, the masses will nevertheless harden their hearts and refuse to be awakened – thus, never repenting.
