"It is that simple: Wars and Rumors of War"

My Brothers and Sisters in our Lord Christ Jesus
It has been some time since i have written here. I have asked the Holy Spirit many times for wisdom lately. In recent days I feel he has opened my eyes and heart for great and simple understanding. Since North Korea has started up their war machine talk again i have given much thought into Matthew 24. Convinced our Departure is at the door for some time now, only the day when escaped me until now. I have never stated previously a date because I never felt the season was at hand, until now.
I just retired from the Army and have a great understanding of War and our current situations in the World and how they are coming to pass right before our eyes. I have written here several times with great accuracy on events in the Middle East involving every Country over there and there roll in our last days. Well I have a few more to share i you will hear me out.
Letís begin with North Korea; it is going to come to a Great WAR. The young leader will not stop he can't now. In order to maintain his stature or reputation with his people and the world (in his eyes) he needs to follow through with action. It is unfortunate but very true. We are seeing fulfillment of Matthew 24:6,
Matthew 24:6
King James Version (KJV)
And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
We could make a case that this has been an ongoing fulfillment but I do not believe so. Never have we been this close to a War that could quickly spread into WW3. Our Military is tired and spread thin right now except for the Navy and Air Force. Due to the long Afghanistan was and recent Iraq wars. I can validate that just retiring and having been over there.
Matthew 24
For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
All these are the beginning of sorrows.
This will quickly follow North Koreas action. Remember China is North Koreas only true ally and what they will do will quickly dictate world events. We know that Russia has a great involvement with Israel, but what is to come will certainly change everything. With America gone the whole focus will be on Israel which is what seems to be written in Matthew. Quickly following Matthew 24:8 I believe is our departure. Many might say we know this and I believe you, my question is why now? I just wonder if our departure has nothing to do with Jewish calendar? Is that possible? Seeing how we are in the Church age of Grace is it possible that the reason we donít know the ďhourĒ is because our Father is not dealing this Israel until the Church has been removed?
There are many of you who are gifted here that may have insight on these questions, or answers for me? I just canít help but notice it in Matthew the difference in the writing in chapter 24 as though he is breaking up the verses into different audiences. Could this be true?
Getting back to world events, once the Church is removed America will be a sitting duck for China, Russia, Iran, North Korean, Cuba, Venezuela, and I am sure many more. As the last frontier of the Church in the world with us (America) removed the sole mission to destroy Israel will begin. I do not feel there is any mention of America in end time events. I may be wrong, but as the world Police we are the major player in every corner of the world. Why then are we not mentioned? Because we are gone. I believe with so many believers missing it will be a cake walk for others to destroy the oneís they dis like the most America. With Obama giving us to the United Nations and he will without resistance and our military might with it.
So I end this letter with so many unanswered questions, food for thought too. I feel also these verses are here too.
Song of Solomon 2
King James Version (KJV)
10 My beloved spake, and said unto me, Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away.
11 For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone;
12 The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land;
13 The fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grape give a good smell. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.
