2018 – THE YEAR OF UPHEAVAL

There has been a sense in the air that we are in a time great turmoil.  The world is poised on the edge of chaos in so many areas; political, military, natural, scientific.  Prophetic streams are converging and biblical prophecy is being set up for fulfillment.  In this series we’ll try to get a sense of where all of this may be headed.  To begin hat journey we’ll take a look back at where we’ve been. PART I – WHERE WE’VE BEEN The event that put the prophetic icing on the cake came at almost the end of the year, December 6th to be exact.  That was the date on which President Trump recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, setting the stage for the fulfillment of prophecies to come.  But to start with I’d like to take a look at some other stories that were amazing and remarkable for their significance. 2017 A YEAR OF TERROR – February knife attack at the Louvre in Paris. “Allahu Akbar” the operative phrase.  // March: Westminster Bridge attack in London.  Five dead, 40 ...
