Does the Bible Give Us the Day for WW3?
The following article was sent to the pastor of Open Bible Fellowship so that he could read it and offer a different view found in the scriptures. The response is found immediately following the article:
"Does the Bible give us the day of the year for World War 3?”
According to highly-acclaimed Bible Prophecy author and speaker, Grant Jeffrey, the answer to this question is an astonishing, "Yes". I have read much over the past 3 years through studies in the Bible that show World War 3 (the Sudden Destruction) and the Rapture to be the very same day. If the start of the Great Tribulation Period is going to take place in the next few days, or weeks, like many of us [bible believers] believe and are expecting, then we need to take a very close look at this BIBLICAL day (it is in the very near future, possibly still in 2012). In light of current events all around the world especially involving a very possible imminent attack involving Israel and Iran and/or Syria, this rapidly-approaching BIBLICAL day takes on a very urgent and ominous meaning for 2012.
Prepare Now for America's Fall
The enemies of free-market capitalism have launched their final attack.
The United States soon will be reduced to an isolated, impoverished country with no influence over international affairs.
A close reading of prophecy reveals no mention of America. The wealthiest and most powerful nation in history will play no visible role in the culminating events of this age. Prophecy expert Grant R. Jeffrey has exposed the hidden causes behind the rapid disappearance of America as we know it.
No longer will other nations count on the United States to come to their aid. Aggressor nations will not have to fear the possibility of U.S. retaliation because very soon, America will be too weak to take action. And just at the time when the United States is weakened nearly beyond recognition, the Antichrist will unleash his evil rule over the world.
When America falls, the collapse will come rapidly. It is to your advantage to know in advance what to look for.
[Please read the following to know just exactly what to look for]
The Bride of Christ [all who have put their trust in Jesus] may
have already celebrated its last Christmas on this earth. Yes, there is a
good chance that Grant Jeffrey's BIBLICAL day for World War 3, will bring about the Sudden Destruction of 1st Thes. 5:3, and the Rapture of the Bride, before this Christmas!!!
First, let me introduce Grant Jeffrey, who probably needs no introduction to most of you. But let me digress here as I report that...
Grant Jeffrey, best known as an expert on Bible prophecy, an advocate of dispensational teaching, and host of TBN's "Bible Prophecy Revealed" program, suffered a cardiac arrest and on May 11, 2012 - he was lifted up to be with his Savior and loved ones gone before, where he has
received perfect healing, no more pain.
I attended many Bible Prophecy conferences where he was one of the featured speakers. I have talked with him. Grant Jeffrey has to be in included in a group of well-known prophecy teachers since the 1970s
who have been warning of the lateness of the hour. He, Along with Hal Lindsey, Perry Stone and J.R. Church has been considered Prime Time teachers of just what is going on in our world today. He was probably the 2nd most sought-after speaker and Bible Prophecy author that we had seen, next to the late J.R. Church. His messages, and especially his books, are extremely well-researched and highly-acclaimed, and enormously popular with students of bible prophecy. My particular favorite of His is the book 'The Signature of God'. The following quotes all are from Chapter 7, of his book... ARMAGEDDON: APPOINTMENT WITH DESTINY.
Perhaps there is a reason that Grant Jeffrey died earlier this year. Perhaps his bold prediction of World War 3 taking place on Hanukkah Eve of some year is a SIGN for us. Could his early death, in his early 60's, be a SIGN of the YEAR of the fulfillment of WW3, in Haggai 2? Could the Lord be telling us that Hanukkah Eve, 2012, is the correct time, the same year as the death of Grant Jeffrey?
Read as Mr. Jeffrey reveals to us the probable day of the year, of the Battle of Gog and Magog (Ezekiel 38--39), World War III, the Sudden Destruction, and, in my opinion, very possibly the day of the Rapture:
"The Lord is in control of history. Some of the appointments with destiny have already been kept and some are still in the future. Russia and her allies still await their appointment with destiny."
"God declares, through His prophet Ezekiel, that He will defeat Russia totally in the greatest military disaster in history. According to Ezekiel 39:2, five-sixth's of the Russian armies will be annihilated upon the mountains of Israel. The Lord will trigger the greatest earthquake, thus far, in history, centered in or on the mountains of Israel, but affecting all cities around the world. In addition, the destruction will be completed by pestilence, overflowing rain, great hailstones, fire, and brimstone (38:22) raining down on them."
"The awesome destruction is not confined solely to the invading armies. God declares, "And I will send a fire on Magog [land of Russia], and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the Lord" (Ezekiel 39:6)."
Many Bible scholars believe that the above verse will involve a nuclear confrontation between Russia and the United States. We do know that the first ally listed with Russia, in this massive attack on Israel, is the nation of Iran (modern Persia). So, this doomsday attack on Israel, by Russia and Iran, may be a direct result of the probable and/or possible upcoming Israeli attack on Iran. Directly preceding this cataclysmic invasion of Israel, MAY be a nuclear confrontation involving Israel and Syria. Isaiah 17:1 says, "The burden of Damascus (the capital of Syria). Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap." Very, very serious, and ominous days are directly in front of the whole world.
"It is fascinating to read the Jewish commentaries on Ezekiel
38 and 39, which describe an oral tradition recorded from the Jewish Commentary, "Gilna Gaon", that advises the Jews to observe carefully when the Russian fleet (Magog) passes from the Black Sea through the Bosporus Straits near Istanbul, Turkey to the Mediterranean Sea. "It is now the time to put on your Shabbat [Sabbath] clothes, BECAUSE THE MASHIACH [MESSIAH] IS COMING."
"Although Scripture does not indicate the exact year in which this invasion and defeat will occur, the prophet Haggai gives us a strong indication OF THE ACTUAL DAY OF THE YEAR ON THE JEWISH CALENDAR WHEN THIS PROPHECY WILL BE FULFILLED. HAGGAI REVEALS THAT
ON THE TWENTY-FOURTH DAY OF THE NINTH MONTH, OF THE JEWISH CALENDAR (KISLEV), THE DAY BEFORE HANUKKAH, GOD WILL DELIVER ISRAEL, AS HE DID TWICE BEFORE ON THIS ANNIVERSARY:
(1) the defeat of the Syrian army and re-capture of the Temple in 165 B.C., and (2) the capture of Jerusalem, from the Turks in A.D. 1917."
"The prophet Haggai declares: "The Word of the Lord came unto Haggai IN THE FOUR AND TWENTIETH DAY OF THE MONTH, saying, Speak to Zerubbabel, governor of Judah, saying, I will shake the heavens and the earth; and I will overthrow the chariots, and those that ride in them;
and the horses and their riders shall come down, everyone by the sword of his brother" (Haggai 2:20--22)." (Compare these verses to Ezekiel 38:4 and 38:20--21.)
Not just one verse in this chapter, but three times, the Lord reminds us of this Day of Destiny. In verse 10, "IN THE FOUR AND TWENTIETH DAY OF THE NINTH MONTH, in the second year of Darius [ancient King of Persia], came the word of the Lord, by Haggai the prophet." Verse 18 reminds us once again of this appointment Day with Destiny, "Consider now from this day and upward, FROM THE FOUR AND TWENTIETH DAY OF THE NINTH MONTH, even from the day that the foundation
of the Lord's temple was laid, consider it."
"This description and the exact language are uncannily like that of Ezekiel
38 and 39, which describes Russia's defeat. The interesting point is that
it names THE EXACT DAY OF THE YEAR ON WHICH THIS WILL OCCUR. SINCE SO MANY
OTHER PROPHECIES HAVE BEEN SO PRECISELY FULFILLED TO THE DAY, THERE IS A STRONG
LIKELIHOOD THAT THIS EVENT WILL ALSO OCCUR ON ITS APPOINTED DAY. "BEHOLD,
IT IS DONE, SAITH THE LORD GOD; THIS IS THE DAY WHEREOF I HAVE SPOKEN."
(EZEKIEL 39:8) GOD'S APPOINTMENT WITH RUSSIA IS SET. IT WILL BE
There is only one more 24th day of Kislev left before the
Year of Destiny, 2012, is over. That day is Hanukkah Eve, Dec. 7--8,
2012. It is 40 days EXACTLY (40 is a number of warning as in the days of
Jonah and Nineveh) from Oct. 29, 2012, the day of Super storm Sandy.
It is two weeks before that infamous Mayan calendar date of Dec.
Kislev 24 on the Jewish calendar is Grant Jeffrey's
pick for being the Day for our appointment with Destiny (This is separate from
Armageddon), backed up by Scripture. This makes Dec. 7--8, 2012, a day to
circle on your calendar. This makes this a very high Rapture/Sudden
Destruction Alert day. In light of the ominous economic, political, and
military perils, including the re-election of the possible Antichrist, Barack
Hussein Obama, staring the whole world in the face right now, none of us
should be surprised if this proves to be the DAY OF DESTINY FOR THE WHOLE WORLD
AND THE DAY OF DESTINY FOR THE BRIDE OF CHRIST [bible
THE WORD OF THE LORD CAME UNTO HAGGAI IN THE FOUR AND TWENTIETH
DAY OF THE NINTH MONTH, SAYING, "I WILL SHAKE THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH; AND I
WILL OVERTHROW THE THRONE OF KINGDOMS." (Haggai 2:20--21) "BEHOLD,
IT IS DONE SAITH THE LORD GOD; THIS IS THE DAY WHEREOF I HAVE SPOKEN."
Haggai 2 says, once again, on the 24th Day of the 9th Jewish month (Hanukkah Eve),
"AND I WILL SHAKE ALL NATIONS, AND THE DESIRE OF ALL NATIONS SHALL COME."

RESPONSE TO THE ARTICLE BY RON REESE BY Bro. Dan Haley Jr:
This is a good article in view of the second coming of Christ to the earth for
the establishment of His earthly kingdom.
It is God's grace and love which draws men to Himself through
the Gospel of Peace (1Corinthians 15:1-10) not any kind of fear, which is what
the article is trying to promote in man's heart. The catching away could occur
at any time and readiness for it comes by walking worthy of our calling, not by
looking for prophetic events.
In history there have been many antichrists (see 1 John) and Mr. Obama certainly
has the heart of one as seen in his voting record as a state and US senator and
in his choice of Supreme Court justices. His domestic and foreign policies have
truly weakened our nation. But Mr. Obama will be long dead along with this
present generation when The Antichrist appears during the seven years of
The prophecies of the OT and Gospel accounts have no connection with "the Body of Christ" which
was a mystery hidden by God from before the foundation of the world or eons.
This mystery was revealed by Paul and is found in the letter to the Ephesians.
The prophecy found in this article will all come to fruition in the proper time frame but the "Body of
Christ" will have been gone for at least 490 years.
Remember that the catching away of the saints (1 Thessalonians 4) is preceded by
encouragement and exhortation (1 Thessalonians 1-4), not prophecy.
When reading the scriptures one notices a smooth read from Genesis to the Gospel of John and then from James through
revelation. This is because the general theme revolves around God's relationship
with Israel and His plan for them as a nation.
Reading the Apostle Paul's epistles departs from an earthly nation to a heavenly people
with a different purpose. The Body of Christ includes Jews and Gentile's (read
Ephesians and Colossians) with the purpose of ministering to the fallen
celestial beings after the rapture.
Israel's purpose will be to draw the nations to God's glory in the 1000 year reign of
Christ. See Exodus 19 and Revelation 19 and 20.
A last note: America is not mentioned in prophecy because it did not exist at the
time. All the nations in prophecy existed but they might have a different name
in the fulfillment of the prophecy.
World war 3 might occur within 5 to 20 years as this is how nations deal with
financial problems and depressions--read world history. Not part of prophecy.
