“And in these days came prophets from Jerusalem unto Antioch. And there stood up one of them named Agabus, and signified by the Spirit that there should be great dearth throughout all the world: which came to pass in the days of Claudius Caesar. Then the disciples, every man according to his ability, determined to send relief unto the brethren which dwelt in Judaea:" (Acts 11:27-29).
The calling of prophet and gift of prophecy did NOT disappear with the apostles at the end of the first century AD. God Almighty (speaking through Peter and Paul) said that people would prophesy (foretell events and reveal His will) through His Holy Spirit until the second coming of Jesus Christ. This is what Peter preached on the day of Pentecost in Acts chapter two. As seen in the above passage from Acts 11, Agabus the prophet was given a warning by the Holy Spirit of a great famine that would take place throughout the entire world. God’s disciples that heeded the warning were able to prepare for that difficult time before it was too late. It was an act of God’s love and mercy to give a prophetic warning through a New Testament prophet.
Today is no different. God has His true prophets scattered throughout the body of Christ all over the world. Warnings have come for many decades from godly men and women. Are there a lot of false and immature prophets? Absolutely! But that does not mean that we should despise prophesying or quench the gifts of the Holy Spirit among us. We have to be wise and discerning, but we need to be open to the true gift of prophecy in the church.
As I have shared before, I am not ashamed to say that God called me to be a prophet even before I was born. He revealed this to me in 1987 and since then He has given me dreams, visions, and words of prophecy that have come to pass. Recently, the Lord Jesus gave me a word of prophecy on December 31, 2013 that 2014 would be a year of UNPRECEDENTED events in warfare, terrorism, government, economy, the environment and in the church (read prophecy here: http://www.deanodle.org/Word-for-2014-Unprecedented.html). Since then, there have been numerous UNPRECENDENTED events in many areas. The Holy Spirit showed me that these events would come on all levels so that is exactly what I shared on Facebook that night and then in an article posted on deanodle.org.
Amazingly, it did not take long to see the first major fulfillment of this word from God. Just two days later, on January 2, 2014, North America experienced an unprecedented polar vortex that pushed its way down and set record low temperatures across the United States, Canada, and Northern Mexico. Here are some excerpts from Wikipedia about the cold wave of 2014…
"On January 2, an Arctic cold front initially associated with a nor'easter, tracked across Canada and the United States, resulting in heavy snowfall. Temperatures fell to unprecedented levels, and low temperature records were broken across the United States. Business, school, and road closures were common, as well as mass flight cancellations. Altogether, more than 200 million people were affected, in an area ranging from the Rocky Mountains to the Atlantic Ocean and extending south to include roughly 187 million residents of the Continental United States.
Beginning on January 2, 2014, sudden stratospheric warming (SSW) led to the breakdown of the regular polar vortex and subsequent southward movement of tropospheric Arctic air. This event led to record low temperatures. On January 7, at least 49 record lows for the day were set across the country. On the night of January 6–7, Detroit hit a low temperature of −14 °F (−26 °C) breaking the records for both dates. The high temperature of −1 °F (−18 °C) on January 7 was only the sixth day in 140 years of records to have a subzero high. On January 7, 2014, the temperature in Central Park in New York City was 4 °F (−16 °C). The previous record low for the day was set in 1896, twenty-five years after records began to be collected by the government. Pittsburgh bottomed out at −9 °F (−23 °C), setting a new record low on January 6–7. Cleveland also set a record low on those dates at −11 °F (−24 °C). Temperatures in Atlanta fell to 6 °F (−14 °C), breaking the old record for January 7 of 10 °F (−12 °C) which was set in 1970. Temperatures fell to −6 °F (−21 °C) at Brasstown Bald, Georgia. Although the cold air moderated, the cold temperatures even reached subtropical Florida, where Tampa had a low of 34 °F (1 °C) in January 2014."
Just a month later, I discovered that we were not alone in our unprecedented weather when I saw a Jerusalem Post article on February 10, 2014 entitled, “Israel Experiencing Unprecedented Drought Conditions.” And then on March 6, 2014, The Guardian reported, “Queensland drought spreads to an unprecedented 80% of the state: Drought-declared area is now the largest in the beleaguered state’s history as state minister works to tap federal help.” On May 2, 2014, Accuweather.com posted, “Unprecedented: 100% of California is in a Drought” and other articles have stated that it is only going to get worse for California through the summer. This is very serious because California produces a great deal of fresh fruits and vegetables for the United States. In fact, our food prices have already been increasing because of this drought.
Distress of Nations
Since January, we have seen several unprecedented events in the banking industry. There has been a rash of high-profile bankers “committing suicide” and being murdered. More than thirty bankers lost their lives in just the last several months (this number does not include family members who were killed with them). Even Autumn Radtke, the 28-year-old American CEO of the Bitcoin exchange firm First Meta, was found dead in her Singapore apartment on February 28th. It seems that many who have been privy to the plans for the coming global “financial reset” are being silenced. I have no doubt that this is a purge among the Illuminati bankers that signals the coming engineered economic collapse. This collapse will move us to the use of an implanted microchip for all financial transactions, i.e. the mark of the Beast (Revelation 13).
The year became even more unprecedented when in March, we saw the Russian bear rise up and take Crimea from the Ukraine. This was truly a big surprise to many across the world and revived the tensions of the Cold War. However, it was not as big of surprise to those who know that Russia plays a large part in the end-times scenario. Since this unprecedented move by the post-Glasnost Russia, there has been what Russian President Vladimir Putin calls an “unprecedented” NATO build up in Eastern Europe. And the rhetoric of nuclear war and WW3 has increased dramatically on all sides.
In other world news, radical al-Nusra Muslims has taken over most of Syria and 95% of the Syrian border between Israel. The ISIS Muslims have taken over Iraq with their brutal blitzkrieg and are threatening Jordan and Israel and declaring a new Islamic Caliphate. When you add in what is happening in the Middle East we can certainly say that the world is witnessing unprecedented events in military, terrorism and politics. However, the stage is being set for even bigger events in the Middle East. The coming unprecedented events like the destruction of Damascus and World War 3 were foretold in the Bible prophecies of Revelation 9 and Ezekiel 38-39.
Deception in the Church
When we take a look at the religious world of 2014 we see that Mystery Babylon the Mother Harlots, the Great Whore (also known as the Roman Catholic Church) has displayed her idolatry in some “unprecedented” ways in 2014. On April 27th, CBS News posted an article, “Pope Francis makes John Paul II, John XXIII saints in unprecedented dual canonization at Vatican.” This event was one of the largest displays of man-worship and idol worship that I have ever seen. They had idolatrous relics of John Paul II’s blood and the dead flesh of John XXIII for the crowds to venerate (which means worship). It also highlighted the demonic miracles that some deceived people received from praying to these dead men. This is also very significant because many believe that Pope Francis is the False Prophet who will work with the Antichrist and the coming world government.
And then on June 8th, Pope Francis held a prayer ceremony for peace with Israeli President Shimon Peres and Palestinian President Mamoud Abbas. During this ceremony the reading of the Koran and Islamic prayers were allowed at the Vatican for the first time. This came after Pope Francis blasphemed the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and the clear teaching of the Bible by stating that even atheists will go to heaven without ever believing or confessing Jesus Christ as their Lord and their God. As Jesus warned about the last days, “Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many… for there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, t
