WHAT TIME IS IT? It’s almost midnight

Notes 387

Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. Mathew 24: 29-31 (Emphasis mine)

*Scriptures are from the NKJV, unless stated otherwise.


I must say clearly that I am not a Doomsday prophet (whatever that means actually) but I am one whose lips will not be kept in a bottle when the Spirit of God is giving utterances to speak. It is important that we realize that we are living right at the edge of a new age; a time in the season of the end of days. However, the coming era or age after the peak point of this global shutdown will be short and precise. Your readiness in God will determine what you will make out of the short age that is coming after now.

The Time                                                  

Sometime in 2014, the Lord showed me this vision that practically defined my path in a dramatic way. In this vision, I was with a small group of people standing outside in an open space. We were looking to the skies for something that was about to happen. In the vision, I was aware that it was the eve of a new year and somehow my eyes were on a clock hanging somewhere close by. The time was ten minutes to midnight, I saw it very clearly. I remember we were waiting for the clock to hit midnight, so we could do the Happy New Year jubilation. Then suddenly from nowhere, missiles started raining down towards us. Lots of missiles with massive explosions everywhere. I saw what was happening but I had no single sense of fear, no panic whatsoever, including the people I was standing with. None was troubled by the missiles and the explosions going on around us. The vision changed quickly. Next, I saw myself dressed in army fatigues as I and the others were been conscripted into an army.  I was feeling so excited about joining this army. As I was lacing my boots to go march out, I saw my mum standing beside me. She looked so happy and excited that I was part of the army going out to war. I remember looking at her and saying to her “Do not cry for me. I will not return”. Interestingly, my words to her didn’t change her happy disposition. As I walked away to join the others, I woke up from this vision. Something in me knew that I had signed up for a journey that I could not get out of till the end. I prayed about the vision and the Lord started breaking it down for me to understand. He made me understand that the institutional church has been waiting in idleness for the rapture to come and take them away, while not been prepared for the days of tribulation which must come first on the earth before the Taking Away (supposed rapture). This tribulation itself, the church cannot escape whether they are prepared or not. Yes there is a taking away for the saints of God according to scriptures, but it’s not an escape from the tribulation. Prior to this explanation the Lord gave me, I had always had a feeling that the perspective of the church about waiting for rapture and that the church will not see the days of tribulation had bothered me, because I could see in scriptures that such a position was not true. He went on to inform me that the time to midnight was just ten minutes, in the timing of God. That reality jolted me, but it created in me a strong desire to take a strong stand concerning the endtime. Since that encounter in 2014, I have been following up in prayers the time, in relation to the midnight I was shown. Then sometime in 2017, I was shown that same clock again. But this time, the time was three minutes to midnight. I got very concerned about it so I shared it with my wife. Somehow that same day, she went online and found out that actually, there is a global doomsday clock used to measure the time on earth before the apocalypse. I was shocked for what we found out that day in the global doomsday clock, for it was similar to the three minutes I was shown. As I write this article, I again checked the global doomsday clock and realized that as at January 23rd this year, the doomsday clock is saying one hundred seconds to midnight. That’s less than two minutes to midnight. Let me share with you a bit of what the doomsday clock is about. Founded in 1945 by University of Chicago scientists who had helped develop the first atomic weapons in the Manhattan Project, the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists created the Doomsday Clock two years later, using the imagery of apocalypse (midnight) and the contemporary idiom of nuclear explosion (countdown to zero) to convey threats to humanity and the planet. The decision to move (or to leave in place) the minute hand of the Doomsday Clock is made every year by the Bulletin’s Science and Security Board in consultation with its Board of Sponsors, which includes 13 Nobel laureates. The Clock has become a universally recognized indicator of the world’s vulnerability to catastrophe from nuclear weapons, climate change, and disruptive technologies in other domains.

The Lie Called Rapture

The taking away of the saints at the return of the Lord is real and will happen according to the words of the Lord in Matthew 24, but the concept of rapture as an escape from the coming tribulation is nothing but a huge lie. For the concept of being taking away is more synonymous with we having a changed body from that which is mortal to immortal like Christ, than it is of floating in the sky like most pictures and movies portray. For scripture says “Behold, I tell you a mystery: “We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed— in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.  For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.” 1 Corinthians 15:51-53 (Emphasis mine). The church has sold the lie of an escapist rapture for ages and the people have become so comfortable, prosperity-conscious that they have become blind to the times and seasons that are upon us already. Let me say this clearly, rapture is a lie. You won’t even find the word rapture in the bible.

What’s the Midnight About?

This question I believe has a simple answer. From the natural way of things on earth, midnight is a gate spot through which we move from an old day into a new one. It’s simply the border between a yesterday and a today. For the globalists, it is the space in time on earth where the modalities for a New World Order of the reign of the anti-Christ must be ushered in. The plan is quite complicated due to the fact that it is spread across the ages until now and trying to put that entire strand in this one article will bore you quickly, but the reality of it is simple. Create global chaos that will trigger global hysteria (e.g. corona virus and the others they have been using), create martial laws globally to lay the foundation for global control; collapse all the systems of the old world (everything attached to money, health, economy, buying and selling, religion, travel, family, social interaction etc.), instigate World War 3 (this will be fierce but short due to advanced weapons technology) then through the panic created from the world war, the introduction of the anti-Christ as savior from the bloodshed will be done. Mind you, the global mass would be too tired to resist the proposal of a global leader (the anti-Christ) that will supposedly put a stop to the mayhem unleashed on the earth. This corona virus that is happening now is just a test to know how the world will react and respond when the real plan unfolds. Every reaction now is being collected as data to be analyzed for the real deal. If you doubt these words about creation of global control out of chaos and the antics towards bringing the anti-Christ, then ask yourself why the World Trade Center (The Twin Towers) in New York was destroyed and then a One World Trade Center was erected in its place. Ask yourself why the palace of Hitler in Berlin Germany is being rebuilt. Ask yourself why the third temple in Jerusalem is about to be rebuilt. It’s quite simple; the One World Trade Center in New York is the proposed economic seat for the anti-Christ, the Palace of Hitler in Berlin is his political seat while the third Temple in Jerusalem will be his religious seat. Remember that Prophet Daniel, the Apostle Paul and the Lord Jesus used this statement “The abomination of desolation” as regards the anti-Christ sitting in the holy place of the temple in Jerusalem. Please see Mathew 24:15, Daniel 9:27, 11:31, 12:11 and 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4.  Pay attention. But for the saints of God, the midnight time which leads to the coming of the anti-Christ and which will in turn lead to the tribulation, is not for fear and panic. It is for the reviewing of stands, positions, faith in Christ, for checking if your armor of God is still intact before the evil days meet you unprepared, even as you prepare for the coming of your King. Also, for the saints, the midnight is about that time space in which all what you have been taught, shown, given, will be tested to see if you are ready for what is coming on the earth. Remember this; this season is not for panic, but for paying attention to the words of God to you. For concerning the tribulation, see what God has promised you and how to overcome. “So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, “Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death. Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time.”

In conclusion, there are lots of things to put together and there are lots of markers already showing you the direction this world is going. Do not join the crowd of those who are not paying attention to things as they unfold. They are busy storing up food. So as you see the days come closer, it’s up to you to understand and make accurate judgment by the wisdom of God. Fear not, for you are not alone.

Blessings always. Your brother.

    Dear Samuel

    1. We are definitely grateful to God for His mercies. And we say amen and amen to your prayers. God bless you richly and keep you in Himself always. Amen.

  2. From my place on the world, everything changed on Friday March 13th, when a power now awoken rolled over this part of the planet. The virus is not “it”, but as you say here, it is the “herald” of it. Like when a large wave rushes over your feet on the ocean shore, it would make you unsteady, try to sweep you up with it, and make you look away from the horizon. Yet I hear the call to hold steady, and look up to Him .Let the wave come, and rush on by. It is what it heralds which we must be ready for…and He has prepared us. It is Christ we must ever look to. Thank you for sharing this reminder. I see all about me people being stripped of their idols – habits, culture, comforts, entertainment, travel and holidays, western luxuries mistaken as necessities, work prestige, church service; people service,financial security; self reliance, freedom of movement and choice, and perhaps even their health and life ……everything. It is interesting to see this sifting. In it, I also see great opportunity- for sleeping hearts to awaken and hear His voice. My prayer is that His will be done, and His children be awakened to the voice of Jesus Christ….and take up the true life He offers. Thank you for sharing His life from your own heart, and calling to and encouraging the children of God about this world today.Thank you for the words about not being alone. Bless you, Brother.

    1. Amen and amen. God bless you Kim. The Lord is our keeper even as we go through this season of the “announcement” to the actual season which we must pay attention to. Many thanks.

    1. Amen. Blessings sir.
