This is a really great prophecy given by a minister by the name of Stanley Frodsham in 1965. Apparently Stanley was a close friend of Smith Wigglesworth, I am sure that name sounds familiar, right? It is a warning against last days deception. The prophecy is quite long and instead of posting it here I am just going to add it here as a link below and also as a PDF file:

I have found this to be some of the most insightful teaching on the book of Revelation, quite possibly the best ever in audio format. David Pawson has a unique teaching style, he is gifted to de-mystify the book and make it very palatable in just 11 sessions. I am going to offer them for listening here on the blog, please do not attempt to download onto your computer as this would be a violation of copyright:
Does Scripture give us any information concerning the phenomenon of hurricanes in the last days? As I was reading the Bible a few days after Hurricane Ike slammed against the Texas and Louisiana coast I came across this passage:
Luke 21:25-28 (NASB)
25 “There will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and on the earth dismay among nations, in perplexity at the roaring of the sea and the waves,
26 men fainting from fear and the expectation of the things which are coming upon the world; for the powers of the heavens will be shaken.
27 “Then they will see THE SON OF MAN COMING IN A CLOUD with power and great glory.
28 “But when these things begin to take place, straighten up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.”
Not only does the Bible speak of these type of storms, but Jesus Himself is the one who made mention of them. Obviously in the Bible days the word Hurricane had not yet been invented, however look at what language is used here: men would be “…in perplexity at the roaring of the sea and its waves.” The morning prior to me discovering this Scripture I had been reading news articles concerning Hurricane Ike and they interviewed one women who had lived in Galveston, TX all of her life and had been through many hurricanes, some that had hit even stronger than Ike and she could not understand how this time much more devastation had occurred. She was absolutely shocked because the sea had come all the way up and was as high as her garage. She said “we have never seen this before.”
Even where I live near Lafayette,LA we have had some serious issues when Ike hit. There is an area about 20 miles south of here that experienced flooding from the storm surge for both Ike and Hurricane Rita in 2005. Both Hurricanes caused people in the area including some close acquaintances of mine to abandon their homes because of flooding. In 3 years this area experienced serious flooding twice due to the storm surge from the Hurricanes. On the local news people being interviewed began to talk about how they had lived there 30 to 40 years and had been through many hurricanes and they never seen flooding like this. Why was it that in only 3 years they began to see type of flooding not just happen once, but also a second time as well. Could it be that the words of Jesus are being fulfilled in this very hour that we live. Men are starting to be perplexed by the roaring of the sea and the waves.
The Scripture says that men will begin to faint because of fear due to all of the things that are coming upon the earth. It seems like it wasn’t to long after Ike passed in 2008, we had another storm hit America. We began to have a economic tsunami sweep across the nation as part of the fallout from the housing market crisis. In the same way that this women in Galveston was astonished at the rising waters coming up past her garage towards the second story of her home, Americans also found themselves astonished as the waves of this financial crisis began to roll and hit closer and closer to their own neighborhoods and into their own lives.
So what is in store for 2009? Will we find ourselves being pulled out of a recession as Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke said this morning? or will the headlines continue to read like the words of prophecy spoken by Jesus? Will 2009 be a year of dismay among nations, men fainting from fear and expectation of the things coming upon the earth; will this be the year that America as well as the rest of the world begins to see the powers of the heavens begin to shake….
Hebrews 12:25-29 (NASB)
25 See to it that you do not refuse Him who is speaking. For if those did not escape when they refused him who warned them on earth, much less will we escape who turn away from Him who warns from heaven.
26 And His voice shook the earth then, but now He has promised, saying, “YET ONCE MORE I WILL SHAKE NOT ONLY THE EARTH, BUT ALSO THE HEAVEN.”
27 This expression, “Yet once more,” denotes the removing of those things which can be shaken, as of created things, so that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.
28 Therefore, since we receive a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us show gratitude, by which we may offer to God an acceptable service with reverence and awe;
29 for our God is a consuming fire.
“How the faithful city has become a harlot, She who was full of justice! Righteousness once lodged in her, But now murderers.” -Isaiah 1:21
The destructive patterns of sin that occurred in OT times are no different in modern times. Nations that sin, follow the patterns of Scripture. The things that happened to Israel, happened for our admonition. The way God judged the nations then, is the way He will judge now.
America was once a faithful and “truly” Christian nation, a people who stood for righteousness and shunned sin and pagan practices. It was a nation full of righteousness, when people got married it would be vows for life. It was a nation where divorce was uncommon, the family unity was strong, there was no filth on radio and tv in plain view of our children. Prayer and Bible study were allowed in schools. Children didn’t do drugs, have pre-marital sex, or use obscene language, they didn’t rebel against parents and authority figures, they did as they were told. Oh how this nation has fallen, oh how it has become a harlot, surely the words of the Prophet are coming to pass. We who were once full of justice & righteousness are now a nation of idolaters, fornicators & murderers.
“Your silver has become dross, your drink diluted with water.” – Isaiah 1:22
Look at our nation today, our economy that was once strong is steadily becoming worthless. The value of our dollar is steadily declining to new lows, or silver is becoming dross or worthless. Even the quality of our products have decreased dramatically. Three of our nations largest car manufactures need massive amounts of bailout money to keep them from closing the doors. Over time the quality of their product has declined so drastically that more and more of their customers are buying foreign products. That which was once quality is now like a drink diluted with water.
“Your rulers are rebels and companions of thieves; Everyone loves a bribe and chases after rewards. They do not defend the orphan, Nor does the widow’s plea come before them.” – Isaiah 1:23
How much more can the Scripture read like today’s headlines. The Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich was taken into federal custody on corruption charges stemming from trying to sell Barack Obama’s Senate seat. In other words he was taking bribes in exchange for leadership positions. It turns out that our new President-Elect and his aides have close ties with Blagojevich. The corruption in our government is nothing new, however as the judgment of God closes in on our sin sick nation the scale of corruption is increasing exponentially and is now going into higher ranks of leadership in more brazen forms.
Amazing!, God’s Word is timeless and still very revelant. The pages of the Old Testament Prophet’s are issuing loud and clear warning for our fallen nation: REPENT! REPENT! REPENT! or we are doomed to enter into the same or even worst judgments then the nation of Israel faced. This sounds like gloom and doom, however the hope that we have is in this, that which God destroys He rebuilds. One thing is for sure, “through His judgments, He will be revealed”.
Isaiah 3:10-12 (NASB)
10 Say to the righteous that it will go well with them, For they will eat the fruit of their actions.
11 Woe to the wicked! It will go badly with him, For what he deserves will be done to him.
12 O My people! Their oppressors are children, And women rule over them. O My people! Those who guide you lead you astray And confuse the direction of your paths.
Obama, Aides Questioned by Feds concerning Blagojevich
Many Christians this week are praying to God for their candidate to win the Nov. 4th election. Iran and it’s president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad are also praying to their god “Allah” for Barack Obama to win the presidency. It is widely known that Ahmadinejad not only denies Israel’s right to exist, but has also denied the holocaust that killed over 6 million Jews and in a speech made in 2005 he states “the occupying regime must vanish from the pages of time”. To translate that last statement into American English “Israel must be wiped of the map.” It is rumored that Iran has been itching to attack Israel and that they even have a nuclear program in hopes to soon have a nuke that they can use against their enemies. So….what has been stopping them from just blasting Israel? The answer is “George Bush” a republican president who has pledged support to Israel. What happens to Israel and ultimately to the world if Barack Obama is elected president? Will he sit down with Ahmadinejad and ask him nicely to leave Israel alone? In recent news the Republicans and some news organizations pointed out that a man named Rashid Khalidi had actually held a fund raiser for Barack Obama. Khalidi is a Columbia University professor and is a harsh critic of Israel, he has made statements supportive of Palestinian terror and reportedly has worked on behalf of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) while it was involved in anti-Western terrorism and was labeled by the State Department as a terror group. Also the LA Times has in its possession a video of a banquet where Obama toast Khalidi and calls him his friend. Although Obama is saying that he is pro-Israel his associations would indicate otherwise.
If Obama is elected, Israel will have a three month window of time from November 4th to the day of inauguration to do a preemptive strike on Iran. If they do that while Bush is still in office perhaps America will be able to send them troops and weapons to help them defeat Iran. However if they wait to strike they are risking too much, Obama will come into office Iran will attack them and they will have no allies to help defend themselves against Iran and the Muslim nations that want to see them annhialated.
Zechariah 14:2-4 (NASB)
2 For I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem to battle, and the city will be captured, the houses plundered, the women ravished and half of the city exiled, but the rest of the people will not be cut off from the city.
3 Then the Lord will go forth and fight against those nations, as when He fights on a day of battle.
4 In that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, which is in front of Jerusalem on the east; and the Mount of Olives will be split in its middle from east to west by a very large valley, so that half of the mountain will move toward the north and the other half toward the south.

The Scriptures tell us that in the last days that many false Messiah’s would rise up and deceive many. Well we have seen this phenomenon on several fronts already, however now it can be seen on the political front. Not just any political front but it is in the race for the highest elected office in the world, the president of the United States of America. There are millions of people who are actually looking at Barack Obama as a Messiah type figure who will deliver them from both external and internal problems and conflicts in their life. Film director Spike Lee was actually quoted saying:
“When that happens, it will change everything. … You’ll have to measure time by `Before Obama’ and `After Obama,'” Lee said during the panel. “It’s an exciting time to be alive now.” … – Spike Lee
Can we fathom how blasphemous of a statement this actually is. Currently it is the incarnation and death of Jesus on the cross that measures time from B.C. to A.D. Is Spike really implying that he wants to replace Jesus Christ with Barack Obama. Probably 40 or 50 years ago no one in American would have believed that a multitude of American people would ever worship any earthly man as a god. However in the 1960’s & 70’s Hindu gurus from India began invading and setting up shop here in America. Multitudes dogmatically followed and devoted their entire lives to these so called “godmen”. Even mainstream icons such as the Beatles began to follow and promote one such leader, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. You must understand that a large segment of that culture in the late 1960’s looked at men like Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, not just as a great teacher or philosopher, but as a bona fide god in the flesh. In India they follow these men around and worship the ground that they walk on, literally by kissing the ground and rubbing themselves with the dirt that just touched these men’s feet. To be honest I do not think that a majority of Obama’s supporters look at him as a savior, however the fact that there is a counterculture that is ready to embrace him as such is shocking and even frightening. On the website ObamaMessiah.blogspot.com, 100’s of pages of comments have been left, some referring to supporters of Obama as believers and his non supporters as unbelievers. Louis Farrakhan, before a very numerous congregation claimed that the youth are now hearing the voice of their Messiah(video below). Furthermore he called Obama “the Hope of the entire world”. Yes, the days spoken of by Jesus in Matthew 24 are no longer just on the horizon they are here! Am I trying to say in this article that Obama is the Antichrist? ….Absolutely not!!! However what I am saying is that the people of America are ready to embrace a man or even a political leader as being a Messiah.
On another note, I had a dream about a week ago that John McCain won the election. In the dream after he won, I saw Obama and let’s just say that he was not too happy with the results. In the dream he was fuming with anger. I do not necessarily think that this was a prophetic dream, however it will be interesting if this is the scenario that plays out.
Fannie Mae was created by Congress during the Great Depression to help with home ownership, and Freddie Mac, created in 1970 as a competitor to Fannie Mae, as of September 7, 2008 both companies are now in control of the Federal Government. These two companies represent 5 trillion in mortgages and account for a majority of all the mortgages currently in the United States. Fannie & Freddie are large companies and they are so interwoven into our financial system that if either of them were to fail it would cause great financial turmoil not only in our financial markets but also around the globe. Prophecy teachers and students alike take note this is a very significant last days event. We know that the entire world is headed to be controled by Antichrist and this is a giant leap for the purposes of darkness to control the people.
Revelation 13:16-18 (NASB)
16 And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead,
17 and he provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name.
18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for the number is that of a man; and his number is six hundred and sixty-six.
