Why I Am On High Alert During The Month Of September

In these troubled times, it pays to be on alert, because global events are moving at a pace that is absolutely breathtaking.  But I will be on a higher state of alert than usual during the month of September, and I will explain why in this article.

Many people instinctively understand that things are taking a very bad turn, and sales at emergency food companies have gone through the roof in recent months.  Unfortunately, the vast majority of those that are feverishly preparing don’t understand the bigger picture, and that is one of the reasons why I wrote my new book.  I want people to understand where we are in history and the extremely chaotic times that are rapidly approaching.  The Bible has a tremendous amount to say about the period of time that we commonly refer to as “the end times” or “the last days”, and I believe that it won’t be too long before God starts intervening in the affairs of humanity in some pretty extraordinary ways.

Of course, God already intervenes in our affairs far more than most people realize.

Let me give you just one recent example.  Over the past several decades, whenever there has been a significant event that has involved the federal government pushing for the division of the land of Israel, the U.S. has been hit with a major disaster very shortly thereafter.  A few years ago I published an article that included 10 prominent examples, and it was shared more than 8,000 times on social media.

Unfortunately, our leaders never seem to learn no matter how many times the pattern repeats.

And now the pattern has repeated again.  On August 27th, Joe Biden and new Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett met to discuss relations between our two nations.  Going into the meeting, we knew that the Biden administration was passionately committed to a “two-state solution”, and we knew that Bennett wanted the Biden administration to end nuclear talks with Iran.  Apparently, the meeting did not go well, and less than two hours after the meeting Ida strengthened into a hurricane.  The following timeline comes from William Koenig’s website

· Biden-Bennett’s meeting is scheduled for Thursday, August 26 at 11:30 a.m. EDT. Rescheduled to next day

· Advisory #1 on Tropical Depression 9, Thursday, August 26 at 11:00 a.m. EDT

· Tropical Storm Ida formed Thursday, August 26 at 5:00 p.m. EDT

· Biden and Bennett met Friday, August 27 at 11:30 a.m. EDT

· Ida strengthened into a hurricane Friday, August 27 at 1:15 p.m. EDT

· Ida came ashore as a category 4 hurricane at 150 mph at Port Fourchon oil hub, Sunday, August 29 at 11:55 a.m. CDT

· Ida came ashore on August 29, the 16th anniversary of Katrina in the same general area.

Hurricane Ida went on to cause tremendous devastation in the Northeast as well, and it is being estimated that the total economic damage from the storm will be somewhere around 95 billion dollars.

Sadly, most people would simply dismiss this as just another “coincidence” in a very long string of “coincidences”.

No matter how much evidence you show some people, they will never believe.

The same thing is true when it comes to God’s calendar.  From the very beginning, God has had His own calendar, and it is very different from our calendar.

For instance, God’s days don’t start at midnight.  That is an entirely arbitrary human invention.

God’s days begin at sunset, and we see this all throughout the Bible.

And there are certain days throughout the year that God has set aside as particularly special.  They are His “appointed times”, and historically they have been incredibly significant.  Over and over again we have seen God do big things during His appointed times, but even most Christians do not understand this pattern.

Just look at the ministry of Jesus.  The appointed times that fall in the spring perfectly foreshadowed the most critical events at the end of His ministry.  Jesus was crucified on Passover, He was put into the tomb just in time for the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, He rose from the dead on Firstfruits, and the Holy Spirit was poured out on the Apostles on Pentecost.

The appointed times in the spring are prophetic shadow pictures that were fulfilled down to the smallest detail by the first coming of Jesus.  No other religion on the entire planet has anything like this.

And just as the appointed times in the spring were fulfilled by the first coming of Jesus, so will the appointed times in the fall be fulfilled by the second coming of Jesus.

I am certainly not saying that any particular event will happen during any particular year, but each year we want to be alert for whatever God may want to do during His appointed times.

This year, all of the appointed times that arrive in the fall just happen to occur during the month of September…

-The Feast of Trumpets (also commonly known as Rosh Hashanah) begins when the sun goes down on Monday, September 6th.

-Yom Kippur begins when the sun goes down on Wednesday, September 15th.

-The Feast of Tabernacles begins when the sun goes down on Monday, September 20th.

In recent years, an increasing number of Christians have started to celebrate these appointed times.  Every single one of them throughout the year tells part of the story of Jesus, and when you understand how God orchestrated very elaborate prophetic patterns centuries in advance it will greatly strengthen your faith.

As we move into the upcoming appointed times and the remainder of 2021, there are certain things that I will be watching very carefully.

Once again, I will have my eyes on Israel.  It has been described as God’s timepiece, and it will be the center of so much that happens during these last days.

If you hear of anything strange or unusual happening in the land of Israel in the coming days, please let me know about it.

And I will definitely do my best to share with my readers anything that I discover.

In the months ahead, I will also be watching for war.  I think that Israel and Iran are so close to military conflict, and there are other hotspots around the globe that could suddenly erupt as well.

We are moving into very chaotic times, and most people will be absolutely blindsided by the events that are coming.

But the Bible warned us about all of these things in advance so that we could have hope.  In the end, Jesus will return to this planet and set everything right, and that is definitely a future that we can look forward to with great joy.

      It would help if Michael saw the impact of the Death Vaxx which he never mentions.

      Israel is the leading country with 85% of adults vaxxed and have more vaxxed in hospitals than unvaxxed. 84,218 cases reported as of today and many dying. Eventually these 85% will die or be disabled since many notable scientists and doctors say it is a BIOWEAPON of a slow death. They are doing BOOSTERS now to make it worse.

      Israel is the Barometer of the Bioweapon VACCINE. When the military dies off or become ill from the 81% that are vaccinated, that’s when a war will start.

      • Brockland A.T. says:

        More like the lab rats for their elites.

        Ruing elites are ruling elites, peasants are just fodder.

        Whatever is being planned for mRNA tech – likely something to do with life-extension for oligarchs – Israelist oligarchs will especially want to know the long-term effects on that population.

      • Answers please... says:

        Please explain to me the rationale for killing off the world’s population with a “death vax”. If everyone who has taken the vaccine (including most politicians) is going to die from it, who benefits? What would be the point of killing off most of the world?

        • Let me explain says:

          I think your not seeing how polititions are just as much fodder as we the people are. They do the biding for the elites and they will be thrown in the trash like the rest of us. But some of them are im sure elitists. And they probably got a saline or B12 shot. Not the vaccine. And they want to kill of most of the world because less people are easier to control, there will be more resources for them, and they will more than likely have robots with AI to do many things. They are satanists, they believe they are Gods and they will stop at nothing to kill us all. And why did they use a death vax. Its called a soft kill. In other words and in another forms its like the frog in the pot of water. Do it slowly and we wont realize till its too late kill us fast and we will fight back. Hope that all makes sense.

        • JayJay says:

          A soft kill because there is a problem with millions of bodies littering the sidewalks, roads, and inside homes.
          When killing only thousands a month, family can bury and facilities won’t be overwhelmed with bodies.

    2. Andrea.Iravani. says:

      Well, of course there are the drought and water shortages in Israel that have been going on for decades, so maybe God is trying to dehydrate the Israelis to death.

    3. Andrea.Iravani. says:

      Satan has been laughing in delight because people believe that Jesus died so that they could sin, which is not Christianity, but Satanism. Jesus did not die so that people could sin. Jesus died because people sinned by crucifying him. God gave man free will and does not intervene in free will. Proof of this is in Judas’ betrayal of Christ, and the crucifixion, just to point out the most obvious. A creator is not a master controller. God is a creator, Satan is a controller. 

      “The evil one controls the whole world.” – 1 John 5:19

      Determinism and predestination are specific to Protestantism. Every other religion in the world flatly rejects predestination, including Catholism and Eastern Orthodoxy. Protestentism is the official church of England, rewritten in order to appease King Henry the 8th for divorce. If a king or government controls religion and the “word of God” he ( they ) will tell his / their subjects that everything is exactly as God intends it, since the king or government are the ones making all of the decisions.

    5. Andrea.Iravani. says:

      This Hobbsean Social Contract Theory is being peddled by university professors because they are InfraGard members that are violating people’s rights.

      It is complete bullshit. Hobbs died in 1679 in England, when there were not really any rights for citizens. The Magna Carta was the most extensive thing that existed there at that time but did not establish rights for individuals.

      We have the constitution in America, which is in fact a social contract that establishes the rights of the individual.

      Hobbs stated that in order for someone to enter society, they must sacrifice all of their rights, among those rights are obviously the right to life, liberty, justice, and property. Anyone that would want to be a part of a society that required that of its members would obviously be a murderer, a thief, or a slave owner or slave trader.

      I have written about this on this and other sites for over two years.

      Kevin Barrett and Peter Simpson both believe in Hobbsean Social Contract Theory which they have both stated on TruthJihad that they are anarchists that oppose the constitution and support social contract theory. Kevin Barrett is a lunatic. 

      Kevin Barrett believes the following:
      1.) America should have anarchy
      2.) America should have a theocracy
      3.) America should have the Bill of Rights
      4.) America should have Hobbsean Social Contract Theory
      5.) In order for anyone to enter society, they shoud sacrifice all of their rights in The Bill Of Rights.
      6.) Kevin Barrett ran for congress

      When I asked Kevin Barrett, on Unz website if he had a change of heart, since he made these contradictory remarks within weeks or months of eachother without any explanation, giving him the benefit of the doubt since people can change their minds, Kevin Barrett responded with the longest delay tactic that he could come up with, read Tolstoy, without even citing which work(s) to read by Tolstoy.

      It was a non answer, because there is no legitimate answer for Kevin Barrett’s numerous contradictions, other than that Kevin Barrett is a politician that will tell anything anyone that they want to hear. All anarchists are failed dictators as the saying goes.

      England to this day, still does not have a written constitution or bill of rights.

      Peter Simpson is a British professor of philosophy in an American university. Peter Simpson is a British intel plant to destroy America. I have previously said that the Europeans are significantly more of a terrorist threat than people from MENA. How much history do these people have to read prior to being WOKE? Many of these concepts among them are related to Turks among the Europeans and MENA by Israelis and the Israelis that decided to invade a region and surround themselves by people that they despise, which is really a masochist endeavor by all rational standards. The Turks do not have any intention of U.S. land grabs, nor have they ever had any history of that. Both the British and the Germans allied with Turks to unleash their forces on their European rivals.

      All European royalty are blood relatives. They have used the divide and conquer strategy over their subjects. This included the Russian royalty as well.

      This is pure silliness.
      Like the other guy said, look at the vax holocaust in Israel being allowed to continue.

    7. Andrea.Iravani. says:

      It is extremely disappointing that Russia is acting so irresponsibly by developing nuclear power plants in African countries.

      Russia, as the largest fossil fuel reserve country, in addition to many top notch scientists that know the inherent irreversible dangers of nuclear power plants, which are even more difficult to manage in Africa because of cooling factors and water scarcity.

      Naturally, if Russians truly wanted to power Africa, they would go solar, and the fact that they didn’t shows that Russians obviously have it in for African countries, in a really big and evil way.

      As far as the JCPOA is concerned, Iran already was a quasi-nuclear power, and the JCPOA limited Iran’s nuclear capabilities, not enhanced them.

      Now, Africa will be swimming in nuclear waste like India, and there is no safe form of nuclear energy and all nuclear power plants create more nuclear waste.

      Africa also has many undeveloped fossil fuel reserves. 

      Russia wants Chernobyl for all of Africa.

      There will now be a call for a fourth vaccine booster shot before there is even enough time to evaluate whether the third one had any effect or not.

      It just sort of seems like everyone is starting to assume results with absolutely no evidence of them, and then assume again when it starts looking like the last assumption didn’t turn out right.

      The important thing with regard to Israel right now is that it serves as a demonstration of the very evil nature of those experimental shots. They are overvaxed with 2 millions having received the 3d dose, poisoning the whole population with Spike S protein and destroying their immune system in the process.
      They are frontrunners to experiment en masse the dreaded ADE as demonstrated in the animal studies. FYI, ADE stands for antibody dependant enhancement, a phenomenon that makes the vaccine do the opposite of what it is supposed to do, by worsening the infection and sending people to the hospital as is presently the case. Although it’s not yet the cold season, but wait till colder days come and watch in horror ADE taking its toll. As the army will be hit too, this will be the time her enemies will size to attack and destroy her, as predicted by Scriptures, in 2-3 years from now. End times are upon us !
      Thus Israel is presently a warning signal to the whole world to stop taking the shots, and for the Christians to get ready being reunited with Jesus.

    14. Christian Soldier says:

      God not only intervenes…the Lord God controls all…

      Scripture is quite clear about this and if ole Mr Synder read the word and not cherry pick scripture…he would know the truth of the sovereignty of God.

      “The LORD hath prepared His Throne In the heavens; and His Kingdom ruleth over all” (Psalm. 103:19).

      The Lord God omnipotent reigneth. His government is exercised over inanimate matter, over the brute beasts, over the children of men, over angels good and evil, and over Satan himself. No revolving world, no shining of star, no storm, no creature moves, no actions of men, no errands of angels, no deeds of Devil—nothing in all the vast universe can come to pass otherwise than God has eternally purposed. Here is a foundation of faith. Here is a resting place for the intellect. Here is an anchor for the soul, both sure and steadfast. It is not blind fate, unbridled evil, man or Devil, but the Lord Almighty who is ruling the world, ruling it according to His own good pleasure and for His own eternal glory.

      “The disposings (margin) of the heart, and the answer of the tongue is from the LORD” (Prov. 16:1). Mark that the above declaration is of general application—it is of “man,” not simply of believers, that this is predicated. “A man’s heart deviseth his way: but the LORD directeth his steps” (Prov. 16:9). If the Lord directs the steps of a man, is it not proof that he is being controlled or governed by God? Again: “There are many devices in a man’s heart; nevertheless the counsel of the LORD, that shall stand” (Prov. 19:21). Can this mean anything less than, that no matter what man may desire and plan, it is the will of his Maker which is executed?

      Get the Book here for free….to see and know the Lord God is the One in charge and works all things after the counsel of His will…

      Buckle up heathens, the ride to hell has just begun….Psalm 9:17

      And for those spreading false doctrine that God loves everyone…I would encourage you to read the book below to see God hates not only the sin…but the sinner, the worker of iniquity as well.

      Doctrine of Election:

      Eternal Punishment:

      Foreknowledge of God in election:–in-election-pinkarthurw
      God Sovereign over all His creation. Not one atom, not one stone, not one beast, not one man, woman or child can stand the will of the Lord God.

      It is clear from Scripture, then, that the angels, good and evil, are under God’s control, and willingly or unwillingly carry out God’s purpose. Yea, SATAN himself is absolutely subject to God’s control. When arraigned in Eden, he listened to the awful sentence but answered not a word. He was unable to touch Job until God granted him leave. So, too, he had to gain our Lord’s consent before he could “sift” Peter. When Christ commanded him to depart—“Get thee hence, Satan”—we read, “Then the Devil leaveth Him” (Matt. 4:11). And, in the end, he will be cast into the Lake of Fire which has been prepared for him and his angels.

        And you never cherry pick scripture in your posts? You seem to have the monopoly on just exactly what God’s word is and says…..Everyone cherry picks scripture. I do constantly…… Please enlighten us all and tell us exactly what people have to do for salvation (eternal life). Never in your posts do you tell of salvation, you always condemn. ….. And I don”t care what misguided Arthur Pink (who misled many with his tracts to do good works for salvation instead of leading them to salvation through faith) says, God does loves everyone…..or He wouldn’t have sent His Son, Jesus Christ to die on the cross for all of us. All God wants from us is for us to believe Him and accept His free gift through our faith in Jesus Christ as our Savior. An offer of eternal salvation, absolutely free, no strings attached. All He asks is that we believe what Christ did for us on the cross. Sin will never separate us from God if we believe Him……God’s Grace is love….Unmerited Love..

      and give you peace.”

      • Anon says:

        Hey MS – Please don’t introduce judaic elements into the Christian faith, it serves no purpose. Christianity is based on one’s personal relationship to the living eternal Lord Jesus Christ, belief in His death, burial, and resurrection, and faith in His saving grace alone. Do not permit judaic concepts and tenets in our faith. It doesn’t add to our faith or make it anymore genuine. The Apostle Paul emphasized this very thing, and the Apostle Peter learned this by receiving a supernatural vision and received warnings from Paul about this.

          Please tell me when (and show me WHERE in the Bible) all of Jesus’s JEWISH Disciples renounced their Jewish faith?
          Please tell me where we are told in the New Testament to NOT celebrate the BIBLICAL Feasts and Holy Days (God’s appointed Times), and to celebrate the pagan based “holydays” of Christmas (Saturnalia) and Easter (Feast of Ishtar, Ashtarte)?

          WHY do Christians celebrate the resurrection of Our Messiah with ancient pagan fertility symbols, i.e. bunnies, Easter eggs, etc.?
          Please show me from the BIBLE, where Jesus and His Apostles tell us to abolish the Old Testament, a Testament written by God?

      America, You’re Not Worth The Risk!  – Love Blackrock

      The countries largest fund, Blackrock, run by Larry Fink with over $9.5 trillion AUM is voting with its feet, all the way to China, because the corruption in America is so thick that you can cut it with a knife, and no economy is sustsinable under such a criminogenic and corrupt environment. Of course, China is also extremely corrupt, but Xi JinPing has been making steps to reign in the crony communist corruption, which may be initially painful, as it was in America after the S&L scandal, followed by the 1987 market crash, both of which received no bailouts, and corruption was brought under control, and people were charged and held accountable for control fraud. Xi is not going to do the bailout thing, or the Too Big Too Fail Thing.

      Hopefully Biden will start working on reigning in the corruption. If he doesn’t the situation remains totally hopeless.
