House to Advance Bill to End Mass NSA Surveillance

May 6, 2014   |   Category: Prophecy News   |   Tags:

A bill that would effectively end one of the National Security Agency’s most controversial spy programs is finally getting its day in congressional court.

 

The House Judiciary Committee will hold a markup of an amended version of the USA Freedom Act on Wednesday, a surprising and sudden move that would essentially nullify the government’s ability to collect bulk metadata of Americans’ phone records.

 

The maneuver may also be a counter to plans the House Intelligence Committee has to push forward a competing bill that privacy advocates say would not go far enough to curb the government’s sweeping surveillance programs.

    I have noticed recently you have been teaching that the great tribulation is not Gods wrath but Satans. The scripture referenced is Revelation 12:12 saying … Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time. However, there are many scriptures saying its Gods wrath. One example is Revelation 16:1 And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of GOD upon the earth. (KJV)
    Another is Revelation 16:19 … and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of HIS wrath. (KJV).

    • Hello Phyllis,
      The Wrath of God and the Tribulation are two different events. In Revelation 12:12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child. 14 And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.
      Notice Satans wrath is the exact time of the Tribulation period, time, times and a half a time. This same example was used by Daniel in Daniel chapter 7:25 And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.
      We can also see this in Revelation 13 instead of the Time, times and a half of time it is said to be 42 months. Revelation 13:5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.

      We know that 42 months is 3 1/2 years, this gives us more information when we look at Daniel 9: 27And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

      In the middle of the week (7 years) ‘he’ the Antichrist, will cause the “Abomination of Desolation.” This event is explained more in (2 Thessalonians2:1-4) the Antichrist sets in the Temple of God claiming he is God. Jesus explains in Matthew 24:15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house:18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

      So, Jesus Himself says the Abomination of Desolation starts the Great Tribulation. This is how we know how long it will last and Revelation 12, explains that this tribulation is the wrath of Satan. Jesus also says in Matthew 24:29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

      Jesus will return immediately after the Tribulation of those days. Now in Revelation 16 we see some of the Vials begin to be poured out, we believe that those vials will be localized, like the days the Hebrew Children were in Egypt and plagues were poured out, but Gods people were not affected. However His full wrath will be after we are gathered together with Him. Revelation 16: 15 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.16 And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.17 And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done.18 And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great.19 And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.20 And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.21 And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.

        I understand the events of the antichrist emerging and the length of the tribulation. I also understand the abomination of desolation being the beginning of the Great Tribulation. But I do not agree that the great tribulation and the wrath of God are two different events.

        As early as the opening of the seals tells us its the wrath of the Lamb.

        Revelation 6:17

        14And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. 15And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; 16And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: 17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

        This tells us from as early as chapter 6 according to verse 16 & 17 that the day of the wrath of the Lamb has come.

        Again in Revelation 11:18

        18 And the nations were angry, and THY wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.

        Revelation 15: 7

        7 And one of the four beasts gave unto the seven angels seven golden vials full of the wrath of God, who liveth for ever and ever.

        Revelation 16:1

        1 And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth.

        I agree Satan will be unleashed on earth after he is thrown out of heaven but I also believe that its the wrath of God punishing all those who choose to follow evil throughout the tribulation. I find many scriptures saying its the wrath of God and only one saying Satan comes down to earth having great wrath because he knows his time is short.

        I’m sure I wont change your opinion any more than you will change mine. : ) I just wanted to point out what I feel supports my beliefs. Thanks for taking the time to respond.

  2. Irvin please speak louder when you are on the phone call from Israel. I have to be within a foot of my iPad to hear everything you say, so could you please use more volume on your overseas calls to us. Many thanks

    I found a scripture that has me wondering. Luke 12:36. It says that Jesus will “return from the wedding” and blessed are those servants who are watching for His coming. So it seems that the wedding will be before He returns the second time. Instead of going to the wedding after He comes. So how can we go through the tribulation till He comes if he comes back from the wedding to get us?

    I am in total agreement with what you said; ALIGN YOURSELF WITH WHAT GOD HAS DONE AND SAID! It is BLASPHEMOUS TO DEFY THOSE COVENANTS GOD HAS MADE CONCERNING THE JEWS AND JERUSALEM!!! Abraham not only was in COVENANT RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD but ABRAHAM’S SEED! Israel will enter into a COVENANT WITH HELL THAT DIVIDES THE LAND AND EVEN WORSE RECOGNIZE ANTICHRIST AS THEIR MESSIAH. Daniel warned that the PRINCE of the COVENANT WOULD BE OVERCOME! This is the same BLASPHEMOUS ACT THAT THE HIGH PRIEST AND TEMPLE PRIESTS HAD DONE ESCORTING ANTIOCHUS EPIPHANES INTO THE TEMPLE TO DEFILE THE ALTAR AND SET UP AN IDOL OF ZEUS THERE! Isaiah 28 gives this ensight by the vison showing the horrific act when those Hellenized Jews that FORSOOK THE HOLY COVENANT aided this evil king entry into the inner court. It was no different in Isaiah’s day as he spoke, they willfallbackward and be broken and snared and taken! Verse 14- Therefore hear the word of the lord you scoffers who rule this people in Jerusalem! Verse 15- Because you HAVE MADE A COVENANT OF DEATH, AND WITH HELL (SHEOL) WE HAVE MADE AN GREEMENT, WHEN THE OVERWHELMING SCOURGE PASSES THRUGH ITWILL NOT COME TO US,… The false Jews of the synagogue of satan make this agreement thinking Antichrist will spare them but GOD SAID, I HAVE LAID IN ZION A STONE, A TESTED STONE, A PRECIOUS CORNERSTONE OF A SUR FOUNDATION:… This is what Paul in Hebrews said concerning the church HAVING A FOUNDATION OF THE APOSTLES and PROPHETS, Jesus Christ being the CHIEF CORNERSTONE! It is as the Jews had done in Jesus day they rejected the stone trying to build upon the law with the blood of bulls and goats to wash away sin which thing it could never do! Isaiah verse 18 Then your covenant with death will be annulled and your agreement with hellWILL NOT STAND; WHEN THE OVERWHELMINGSCOURGE PASSES THROUGH, YOU WILL BE BEATEN DOWN BY IT! Antichrist will break the covenant in the midst of the seven years and will take Jerusalem and halt their sacrifce declaring HE IS MESSIAH, HE IS GOD IN THE FLESH AND SET UP THE IMAGE THAT ONCE AGAIN DEFILES THE JEWS TEMPLE! he BLASPHEMES GOD AND HIS CHRIST IN HEAVEN! As Jesus warned, they of your own household will betray you. Many are decieved causing believers to be put to death THINKING THEY ARE DOING GOD’S WILL. it is THE TIME OF JACOB’S TROUBLE because they hardened their hearts and refused to hear the TWO WITNESSES who now defend the city and nation until the Antichrist overcomes them leaving their dead bodies lying in the streets of Jerusalem… but only for 3 1/2 days when Christ appears in the clouds and His angels harvest the earth of the resurrected believers and those who are still alive. The 144,000 are the FIRSTFRUITS OF MEN UNTO GOD. Evidently after the resurrection of the souls of believers which Jesus had brought with HIM, these of Israel who fulfill the covenants God had made with Abraham Isaac and Jacob and were followers of the Lamb lead the saints as they rise to meet the lord in the air. It matters not WHERE A BELIEVER IS BURIED OR WHERE THEY ARE LIVING AS THE ANGELS HARVEST FROM ONE END OF THE HEAVEN TO THE OTHER. Satan will try to change times and seasons but will always fail as God has his APPOINTED TIMES UNTIL THE CONSUMMATION OF ANTICHRIST AND HIS BODY GIVEN TO THE FLAMES AS CHRIST DELIVERS JUDAH AND JERUSALEM AND DESTROYS MIGHTILY TRAMPLING UPON THE FORCES OF ANTICHRIST AT MEGGIDO. That old serpent is bound for one thousand years in the bottomless pit stripped of the antichrist and his false prophet. Jesus is coming! He WILL FULFILL ALL THE WORDS OF GOD’S COVENANT AS THE PROPHETS FORETOLD UNTIL THEIR COMPLETION. HEAVEN AND EARTH WILL PASS AWAY but Jesus is given EVERLASTING DOMINION AS THE FATHER TABERNACLES WITH MEN IN THE LAMB AND ALL THINGS RETURN TO HIMAND ARE SUBJECT TO GOD THE FATHER THAT HE MAY BE ALL IN ALL! THERE IS BUT ONE GOD AND FATHER OF ALL AND JESUS IS HIS EXPRESS IMAGE AND ALL THE FULNESS OF DEITY DWELLS IN HIM!!!
