Here's a Good Example of Why Most People are Confused about what the Bible Says about the End Times
Over the course of the last twelve years, virtually everything I was told and taught to be true has proven to be a lie in virtually every field which I have studied. In particular, all the big claims of mainstream biology, physics, world history, political science and biblical theology have proven themselves to be false. For most people, this is no big deal, since the truth really doesn't matter to them; but to me, it matters a great deal; because if I don't know what is objectively true, I cannot make wise decisions that affect my future and those whose safety is entrusted to my care. Furthermore, I take that duty and responsibility to others very seriously. It's just how I am wired.
Nowhere have I encountered more lies and confusion than I have as it concerns what the Bible teaches on a number of fronts. One of those is the subject of what does the Bible really say and mean regarding end times Bible prophecies? There are many false teachers and charlatans that are all over the map on this subject. So today I want to use one poignant example to demonstrate what not to do, using Bo Polny, a recurring guest on Greg Hunter's alt-media and controlled opposition website, usawatchdog.com, who was featured on Saturday, January 14, 2023, on that site at:
People like Bo Polny, and many others, are doing a lot of harm to a whole lot of people by making many enthusiastic, but unsupported, claims about what the Bible teaches and where we are in God's prophetic biblical timeline that are way off the mark.
In this presentation that Polny makes, he asserts, with nothing from scripture to back up his claim, at the 1:45 mark, that while we are in the end times, we are only at the very beginning of it, what he refers to as "the beginning of sorrows," which he gets from Matthew 24:8. He is simply dead wrong. We are right at the bitter end of the end times, in which the second coming of Yahushua the Messiah will occur very soon, immediately followed by the end of the world in scorching fire.
How do I know that I am right and that he is dead wrong? In large part, it is because I have endured hideous treacheries, betrayals and afflictions at the hands of every one of my family members and most of those who pretended to be my friends, that YHWH allowed and orchestrated to get my attention over a decade ago. But more generally, I have studied the Bible closely to know and understand what it says and where it says it, on end times events. I am a very thorough and disciplined researcher, scholar and student of God's word, the Bible, and I am a man of impeccable honesty and integrity. This combination of attributes is very rare. Having co-authored with YHWH (God) six books on the end times of Bible prophecy and related subjects over the last eight years, and having earned the rank of Eagle Scout in 1969, my bachelors degree in economics from UC Davis with Highest Honors (top 3-5% of my class) with Phi Peta Kappa and Phi Kappa Phi honor society distinctions (the top two undergraduate academic honors recognitions in the country) in 1976, and my MBA degree with second year honors from the Harvard Business School (top 11-12% of my class) in 1981 and gone on to lead half a dozen smaller troubled high tech companies through challenging turn arounds as their chief financial or chief executive officer over a 20+ year career and a successful management consulting career for eleven years before that, my life accomplishments speak for themselves and set me apart from all others. I would have never accomplished half of those achievements if I were not a remarkably honest and disciplined reader, critical thinker, problem solver and natural born leader. I hate talking about my past accomplishments, out of a spirit of humility, but in this instance, I must do so to establish my credentials and set myself apart from the many liars and charlatans out there. Otherwise, my message from YHWH will get lost in the noise and confusion.
Scattered throughout the Bible are a number of predictions of what we would witness in what the Bible refers to as the last days. Many of these predictions employ figurative language and metaphors to hide their real intent and meaning from the profane masses. And each one of these metaphors are explained by other passages in scripture. You just have to know where to look to find them, and you have to be humble and teachable enough and able to think critically for yourselves.
As it turns out, the Bible describes specific behaviors that we would witness in many people and in events that would occur in our world in the last days in which we are now living that would have to precede the second coming of Yahushua (Christ). If few, if any, such events have not yet occurred, we would have to logically conclude that either we are still at the beginning of sorrows, or that we are spiritually blind. If the latter is the case, we are in big trouble, because God's word tells us that God's elect shall not be deceived, but that everyone else will be in Matthew 24:24. As God's true end times prophet, and therefore one of God's elect, I can see these things. But most people cannot. It seems pretty apparent to me that Bo Polny is one of those latter people: he simply cannot see what God has revealed to me through His Holy Spirit working through and guiding me to see such things. And the way you can know this with absolute certainty is to compare everything I say against what the words of scripture of the KJV Bible say and clearly mean and to do the very same thing with anyone else claiming to have insight into how the events described in end times Bible prophecy are being fulfilled by events we are witnessing today.
Here are the twelve end times prophecies that must occur before Yahushua's second coming can occur; because when prophecy is fulfilled, it is always fulfilled perfectly and to the letter of what God's word says and means:
Matthew 24:15-16 and 21
2 Thessalonians 2:3
2 Thessalonians 2:10-12
2 Timothy 3:1-7
2 Timothy 4:3-4
2 Peter 3:3-7
Daniel 12:6-7 and 12:11
Daniel 12:12 and Revelation 19:9
Matthew 24:29 and Revelation 6:12-14
The first eleven of these twelve prophecies have now already been fulfilled and almost no one is talking about them!
In Appendix G of YHWH's and my first book, Making Sense Out of a World Gone Mad: A Roadmap for God's Elect Living in the Final Days of the End Times, and in Chapter 6 of our third book, Reflections of a Watchman on the Wall in the Final Days of the End Times, titled, "The World's Greatest Story that Will (Almost) Never Be Told," YHWH and I explain the events and behaviors which YHWH has revealed to me, and which I have witnessed, that fulfill each one of these first eleven prophecies perfectly and completely.
Are there any other end times prophecies that must precede Yahushua's second coming? There is only one: Revelation 6:15-17, and it is entirely possible that even verse 15 of that passage has already been fulfilled; we may just not know about it, because it is being concealed from us. This is a rather remarkable claim that I am making here, that any person of genuine honesty and integrity ought to look very seriously at and challenge, before dismissing it out of hand. And yet, in the nearly eight years since my first book was published, not one person has ever dared to challenge my rigorous analysis or to show me how and why I am in error. That fact alone is truly extraordinary and remarkable, is it not? It begs the question, Why not? What are people so afraid of? Or more accurately, what are their demons so afraid of? I believe the answer is because of who they know who I am: God's true end times prophet and that I always speak and teach the truth.
At the 7:30 mark of the video interview referenced here, Polny asserts, inaccurately, that Christ returns at the end to marry His bride the church, which according to Polny are those people who have chosen Him. This is a very common, almost universal false claim and teaching, that Ephesians 2:1-3 refutes and demolishes:
"And you hath he (meaning God) quickened (made spiritually alive), who were dead in trespasses and sins; Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air (meaning, the devil), the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience. Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others." (Parentheticals added for clarity)
Ephesians 4-10 then goes on to explain what true conversion consists of and who does it all:
But God (Eloah), who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us (the apostle Paul is referring only to God's elect here - not to everyone!), Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ (the Messiah), (by grace are ye saved;) (grace means unmerited favor) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus (the Messiah, Yahushua): That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace toward us through Christ Jesus (the Messiah, Yahushua). For by grace are ye saved through faith; and not of yourselves: it is the gift of God (Eloah): Not of works, lest any man should boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus (the Messiah, Yahushua) unto good works, which God (Eloah) hath before ordained that we should walk in them." (Parentheticals added for clarity; boldface added for emphasis)
So tell me, how does Bo Polny, or anyone else for that matter, conclude that anyone did anything to save themselves or to believe Yahushua the Messiah that makes them truly one of His church or body of believers and remain consistent with this passage of scripture? It is impossible to do without lying and twisting the words of scripture, or more commonly, to ignore them altogether. That's not the least bit intellectually honest. It's a form of fraud and thus, of the devil, and not of Christ at all.
Simply put, we are all born spiritually dead and separated from a right relationship with God. Spiritually dead people are incapable of doing anything to save themselves. We don't choose YHWH and Yahushua. YHWH chose His elect, since before the foundations of the world, and wrote our names in the Lamb's book of life. Only those whom YHWH (God) chose beforehand, will ever be saved. The Bible is not the least bit ambiguous about this. Thus, Polny has it all wrong.
At the 11:00 mark, Polny incorrectly asserts that God loves all His creation. If that is true, then God's word lies when it says,
"For thou art not a God (Eloah) that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee. The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity.Thou shalt destroy them that speaking leasing (meaning, wickedness): the LORD (YHWH) will abhor the bloody and deceitful man." Psalm 5:4-6 (Boldface added for emphasis; parenthetical added for clarity)
"God (Eloah) judgeth the righteous, and God (Eloah) is angry with the wicked every day." Psalm 7:11
"The way of the wicked is an abomination unto the LORD (YHWH): but he loveth him that followeth after righteousness." Proverbs 15:9
"The LORD (YHWH) hath made all things for himself; yea, even the wicked for the day of evil." Proverbs 16:4
So Polny is preaching a doctrine of devils 0f 1 Timothy 4:1 and a false gospel that God loves everybody, when the Bible is very clear that that is not the case at all!
Once you detect that a person is a liar and a fool, the Bible teaches the wise to have nothing to do with him ever again and just walk away:
"Go from the presence of a foolish man, when thou perceivest not in him the lips of knowledge." Proverbs 14:7
Not everything that Polny claims in his interview is false. Understand that an effective liar teaches 80% the truth and 20% a lie. But wisdom tells those of us seeking to become wise to keep the company of other wise and righteous men and have nothing to do with those who have revealed themselves to be foolish and/or wicked. Those who are caught in a lie are both foolish and wicked, regardless of what they may claim to the contrary. Those who claim to receive revelations from God but whose teachings contradict the Bible are false teachers and what revelations they are receiving are likely to be from the lying devil or his demons, and not from the God of truth at all.
Returning to my list of fulfilled end times prophecies, the most important one is the eleventh one that we have all just lived though during the last three years: Matthew 24:29 and Revelation 6:12-14 and the opening of the sixth seal, which has appeared in the form of the Covid psyop and all governments' tyrannical responses to it. Genesis 37:9-10 describes a dream Joseph has in which the sun, moon and eleven stars bow in obeisance (reverence) to him. When he recounts his dream to his father, Jacob, Jacob gets angry with his son because he instantly recognizes the symbolism of Joseph's dream, of which he was well aware. In that context, the sun, moon and eleven stars symbolized the family authority of his father, mother and eleven brothers, respectively. In the context of Matthew 24:9 and Revelation 6:12-14, which both describe the same singular event, the sun, moon and stars symbolize governmental authority growing dark, or despotic and tyrannical worldwide. This is the new normal. Things will never get any better until Yahushua's second coming occurs very soon.
A simple reading of Matthew 24:30-31 and Revelation 6:15-17, that immediately follow these two fulfilled passages, reveals what must come next: the second coming of Yahushua and the end of the world with it. This is why we can rightly conclude that we are not at the beginning of sorrows, as Polny improperly claims, but we are right at the bitter end of the end times of Bible prophecy. Nothing could be more clear, to those with the spiritual eyes to see and ears to hear these sorts of things.
For those of you who wish to understand what the Book of Revelation's many metaphors mean, I urge you to get YHWH's and my book, Making Sense Out of a World Gone Mad, and read Chapter 10, entitled, "The Rest of YHWH's End Times Story." In that chapter, YHWH and I show where each metaphor in it is explained by other passages of scripture. Pastor David Meyer of Last Trumpet Ministries in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin, who died in 2010 at age 60, recorded 47 CDs of his sermons in 1989-90 in which he thoroughly unpacked the entire Book of Revelation that I have drawn on heavily in our book. If you with to obtain a copy of those CD teachings, you can send a donation to Last Trumpet Ministries in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin, and they will send you one of the same CD sets that I have. That set contains a wealth of knowledge taught by a humble and very godly man to whom I am deeply indebted. If you choose to do either of these things, you will see that Polny is deeply mistaken about the opening of the first three seal judgments as well. He simply has no clue what they symbolize, and thus when they first occurred, many centuries ago.
Finally, at one point in his interview, Polny falsely claims that there will be a spiritual revival the world over, the likes of which will rival the parting of the Red Sea moment. I agree that the second coming of Yahushua moment will make the Red Sea miracle seem like child's play. But there will be no revival, because if there were to be such a thing, scripture would reveal it to us, and it does not. Polny is lost and has no clue where we are in God's prophetic end times biblical plan and so he grasps at straws and wishful thinking, because this is the role YHWH has created him to fulfill: to mislead the masses and to fulfill Matthew 24:24:
"For there shall arise false Christs (messiahs), and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible (thankfully it is not!), they shall deceive the very elect. (Boldface added for emphasis)
Bo Polny is but one of these many false prophets. Do not be deceived.
The key lesson and take away from this discussion is to trust no man and test everything you hear about the end times against what the scripture of the KJV Bible says, because almost everyone, especially slick and fast talkers, like Bo Polny, are deeply deceived in these most deceiving of times in all of world history.
For those readers who wish to understand the sequence of events that are prophesied to occur leading up to Yahushua's second coming, I encourage you to read Matthew 24, Mark 13 and Luke 21 very carefully. The three books of Matthew, Mark and Luke are the three synoptic gospels that cover the life of Yahushua the Messiah in slightly different, but parallel, accounts. The three chapters mentioned here all cover Yahushua's teachings concerning when the temple of Jerusalem shall be torn down and when His return shall be and what shall be the signs or omens that foretell of these events. Consider this passage from Luke 21:
"And he (Yahushua) spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all trees; When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand. So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know that the kingdom of God (Eloah) is nigh at hand. Luke 221:29-31
So now you know that at least some of us are able to see those things come to pass which Yahushua predicted some 2000 years ago. It really does not take a rocket scientist to see and figure out. It only requires YHWH's Holy Spirit living in and working through you to show you these signs, as He has shown them to me.
This is what explains why events in our world today in early 2023 are revealing that all the nations of the world are mad, led by the Zionist Occupied Government (ZOG) of the United States of America. But it's not just America. All governments of the world, at every level, serve Satan, the father of lies and the destroyer. I have remarked in prior articles of mine that God has the world now engaged in a slow motion train wreck. It's a very apt analogy. The question we all must ask ourselves is why? The answer seems painfully obvious to me: to give everyone alive on earth today every possible opportunity to see the almost endless social, spiritual, economic and political consequences of lying, stealing, murdering, coveting and lusting after that which is meaningless and is perishing, and which a holy, just and righteous God rightly abhors.
Thus, when Yahushua returns in the clouds with power and great glory, what does scripture tell us will be the result when all the tribes of the earth witness it? It tells us that they will mourn. They will mourn because they and their demons will know that the jig is up and that they really didn't fool anyone but themselves with their endless lies and playing pretend, and that what follows are the inevitable consequences of their wickedness and folly:
"And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man (a term meaning Yahushua the Messiah) 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. 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 another." Matthew 24:30-31 (Parenthetical for clarity; boldface for emphasis)
Scripture tells us that no man knows the day or the hour of Yahushua's second coming. I am no exception to this. Nor is the precise timing of Yahushua's return all that important. We know it is close. What is important is that which is objectively, absolutely and universally true. The Bible is true. And all men are liars; present company excepted.
The truths I teach are only possible through YHWH's Holy Spirit living in and operating through me. I take no credit for any of it. To YHWH (God) goes all the glory, honor and praise for it. So thank Him. I am merely one of His submitted vessels, mouthpieces and ambassadors. In point of fact, He wrote this message. I merely wrote what He inspired me to write. This is how He inspired the entirety of the 66 books of the Bible to be written in their original Hebrew and Greek languages by the roughly 40 godly men who He used to get those books written in their own unique writing styles. Those same 66 books of the Bible are unintelligible to anyone who lacks YHWH's Holy Spirit in him guiding him into all truth. Clearly, Bo Polny is one of those men to whom scripture is largely unintelligible. So now you know.
