The “heat dome” over much of the United States is the main topic this week (besides the NATO summit). I’ve lived in Phoenix, AZ for 18 years and I’m used to 3-4 months of over 100 degree heat. It’s the opposite of living in the Northeast where I grew up. Here, we stay inside in the cool air conditioning as much as possible. Up north is the winter months where we stay inside in the warmth. At least, I don’t have to shovel snow!
So far, Phoenix has had 15 consecutive days with temps over 110. The record is 18 set in 1974. See, it’s happened before! Obviously, we’re going to break that record this next week.
I caught this little tidbit of information on Twitter:
I think God is giving us a taste of His coming judgment on the world when He will judge the world with fire. What am I referring to? Hang in there till the end. A lot of prophetic things happened this week Here’s this wrap-up…
Last Days Bible Prophecies
Coming True Right Now!
Wars, Threats of Wars, People Group vs
Ukraine / Russia
Biden Orders 3,000 Military Reservists to Eastern Europe
Yesterday, Biden issued an executive order that authorizes the Pentagon to deploy up to 3,000 US reservists to serve as part of Operation Atlantic Resolve, which helps supply combat-ready forces meant to support the defense of NATO countries.
The White House said, “This reaffirms the…commitment to defend NATO’s eastern flank in the wake of Russia’s illegal and unprovoked war on Ukraine.”
This raises two big questions: Why this sudden order immediately after the NATO summit takes place earlier this week? And are NATO and the US concerned that Russia might expand its war to other countries that border Ukraine?
The 3,000 reservists would add to the already 20,000 military personnel the US has sent to Europe since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in 2022.
At the NATO Summit, NATO leaders agreed new defense plans to protect and defend every inch of Allied territory. It’s funny that countries that can’t even protect their own borders from illegal immigration (with the infiltration of radicals and terrorists) are so eager to defend other countries.

Russia Accuses the West of Bringing World War 3 Closer
During the NATO summit which took place in Lithuania, several countries have promised more weapons and financial support to Ukraine.
In response, Dmitry Medvedev, the deputy secretary of Russia’s Security Council, wrote a Telegram post saying, “The completely crazy West could not come up with anything else…In fact, it’s a dead end. World War Three is getting closer.”

Jesus warned us, “Nation will go to war against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.” The Greek word for “nation” is “ethnos” from which we get our words “ethnic” and “ethnicity”. It’s also translated as “people group” against “people group”.

Undoubtedly, we are witnessing the CONVERGENCE of numerous events — all prophesied in the Bible happening all at once! Unfortunately, things are going to get way worse before Jesus comes for His born-again believers in the Rapture.
Nevertheless, our hope is in knowing that HE is still in control!
Earthquakes & “Seismic” Weather Events, Pestilence, Plagues & Famine
The Greek word for “earthquake” is “seismos”, which refers to seismic weather like tornadoes, hurricanes, and violent storms as well as earthquakes and volcanoes.
This week severe flooding hit parts of NY and VT — 2 states where I used to live. I’ve traveled through these areas extensively and it breaks my heart to see the destruction.

Last week I reported that there had been a decrease in earthquakes and an increase in volcanoes. One of the areas showing increase earthquake swarms was Iceland. The earthquakes calmed out because 2 dormant volcanoes erupted in full force. Gratefully, the are where these volcanoes are is uninhabited. But it does make a great show…
Pestilence & Famine
- Britain on lockdown alert as new killer virus which kills 40% of victims ‘certain’ to reach UK
- Peru declares health emergency after surge in Guillain-Barré Syndrome cases — more on this rare neurological disorder. Guillain-Barré Syndrome is a rare disorder in which the body’s immune system starts attacking the nerves, which could lead to paralysis and other life threatening complications. I know 2 people who had it. You wake up one day to find that you’re completely paralyzed. They both eventually got better, but they both had long and arduous recoveries.

28 “And the world will be as it was in the days of Lot. People went about their daily business—eating and drinking, buying and selling, farming and building— 29 until the morning Lot left Sodom. Then fire and burning sulfur rained down from heaven and destroyed them all. 30 Yes, it will be ‘business as usual’ right up to the day when the Son of Man is revealed.Luke 17:28-30 NLT

We must pray and speak out against persecution…
If we Christians don’t continue to share the gospel and push the envelope, the envelope will close in on us. If we maintain a “silent witness,” there will be no witness, and Christianity will die in America.Ray Thorne, Missionary to the Persecuted Church (via VOM)

They said, “Here is the peace that we have been searching for.” These Hindu monks want to learn more about this peace. Pastor Amar and other believers are meeting with the monks to share more about Christ. Pray that these monks will come to believe in Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord.

We Are Living in the Last Days!
The Lord will punish the world by fireIsaiah 66:16
and by his sword.
He will judge the earth,
and many will be killed by him.
7 The first angel blew his trumpet, and hail and fire mixed with blood were thrown down on the earth. One-third of the earth was set on fire, one-third of the trees were burned, and all the green grass was burned.
8 Then the fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, causing it to scorch everyone with its fire. 9 Everyone was burned by this blast of heat, and they cursed the name of God, who had control over all these plagues. They did not repent of their sins and turn to God and give him glory.Revelation 8:7, 16:8-9 NLT
The Book of Revelation tells us when.
Moreover, these are just 2 examples of what will happen if you’re left behind at the Rapture to face the Great Tribulation! Notice the last line, verse 9, “They did not repent of their sins and turn to God and give him glory.” Even after all the suffering they’ll be going through, they still don’t repent of their sins and turn to Him.
Jesus, you are the unbreakable, unshakeable, immovable foundation that stands the test of time and keeps us standing strong in the face of panic-inducing winds and terrifying storms. Help us to remember that we born-again believers are citizens of the Kingdom of Heaven — and this evil earth is not our home! Thank you for being our confident hope!
Lord, please come soon to fulfill your salvation, and grant us patience as we wait to see it. Amen.
Are YOU Secure in YOUR Salvation
Through Jesus Christ?
If you’re not sure if you’re saved or not, if you truly want to be born again and have the assurance of salvation, receive the Holy Spirit, feel His Shalom — a peace that surpasses all understanding, and get a 1-way, non-stop ticket to Heaven after you die, or that you won’t be left behind at the Rapture, which can happen at any moment, this is what you have to do…
Believe. Repent. Be Baptized. Receive the Holy Spirit.
- Believe — have Faith — that Jesus is the Christ and He died taking your sins away forever and that He rose from the dead 3 days later.
- Repent of your sins — stop sinning! Do a complete 180-degree turn in your life and surrender your life to Him. When you ask Jesus to forgive you He will. ALL your sins will be wiped clean — past, present, and future! And All means ALL!
- Be Baptized by water baptism — show the world and yourself that you have died to your old life and are born again in Christ.
- Receive the gift of Holy Spirit in your heart.
Invite Jesus into Your Heart and Receive the Gift of Grace, Joy, Peace, and the Confident Hope of Eternal Life…
