In the Book of Romans, Scripture speaks of a "mystery" (Strong's "mystḗrion" - Original Word: μυστήριον, ου, τό.) Unlike the popular perception, is it not something unknowable. Rather, it is what can only be known through revelation, i.e., because God reveals it.
As we study the Word of God and divide it correctly, we can discover His plan for those who would accept His free gift of Salvation and for the nation of Israel. God has specific plans for the Jewish People, and their land. Join Pastor Mike as he explores several intriguing passages of Scripture about Israel and her future in this week's message entitled "All Israel Will Be Saved."
The acceleration of world events, and the clear movement away from the Word of God has become alarming, even to those who study the warnings contained within Scripture. Information from all sources about prophetically significant world events is pouring in at unprecedented speed.
From the Pope's interference in American politics, to Russia's declaration that we may see the beginnings of the next world war in the Middle East, to the very real and very imminent move toward a cashless society, we are racing toward judgment and an event horizon that will test the faith of even the elect. But we rest assured that all of this has been foretold...and we are looking to the climatic return of our Lord and Savior to set things right again.
Join John as he takes us through a whirlwind journey looking at the the world economic crisis, the Vatican's wall and it's restrictive immigration policies, and the Syrian conflict, which has just about reached it's boiling point.
Stand strong. These are not times to be caught sleeping...but to be watchful as things play out as this chapter in history winds down.
What are the signs of Jesus return? Just to name a few:
Marrying and giving in marriage
The Days of Lot
The "Days of Noah
The prevalence of "itching ears"
The appearance of the "Son of Perdition
False teachers (aka, Joel Osteen)
Increased persecution of Jews and Christians around the world
Plus many more.
All these events, combined with a move renewed move toward ecumenism have set the stage for heavenly fireworks very soon! In classic family road trip lore, the theological question remains "Are We There Yet?" Almost, kids. Almost.
In classic update style (since he is traveling this weekend), John brings us up to date on the state of the world in his latest update entitled "What a Mess."
WARNING! NOT AN OBAMA-FREE SUNDAY
One of the signs of the End Times is the warning from Scripture that God will send a strong delusion to confuse and cloud the minds of many on the earth who are not fully in tune with Him. Things that should be obvious to a thinking individual escapes their discernment, and men wrought with the love of power will mislead and deceive.
From the Catholic Church's practice of praying to dead bodies, to the Russian Deception, to the impending world back crisis and the constant barrage of criticism of Israel, indications of the massive coming delusion are already echoing throughout the world.
Do not be deceived. The Lord is preparing His return and unlike His first appearance on earth, He will not be "Baby Jesus, meek and mild." He will return as a conquering Messiah, holding all those who have rejected Him to account with swift and eternal judgment.
Unless you have been totally sleeping through your prophetic alarm clock, it is increasingly clear that the world is turning against Israel with increasing intensity and speed.
On one hand, many factions are calling for Israel to be pushed "into the sea" while others are calling for the much promised, but ever elusive "Two State Solution" which is believed to be the panacea of the peace process. Scripture is clear...the nations of the world will turn against Israel, yet she will prevail.
Join John as he takes us on a whirlwind journey exploring the burgeoning student debt load in America, the Zika outbreak in South America, Iran's increasing influence in the EU, and finally, the Word of God's warnings of things to come in the Middle East.
Don't hit the snooze button on this one...wake up, take heed and pay attention because our Redeemer is drawing near.
This week, John looks at Europe in 2030, the issue of factions of the United Methodist Church moving away from Biblical Truth, signs of a severe worldwide downturn in the economy and the growing anti-zionism sweeping the Middle East and Europe.
Spanning the Atlantic and spearheaded by American leadership, while the US has historically been a staunch ally of Israel, the recent political shift against the only Middle Eastern democracy comes at a steep price. Is God gradually removing His hand of providence from our country due to her leadership's meddling in the peace and safety of Israel?
Is it irony, or judgment that our US Diplomats took aggressive stances against Israel, blaming them for Palestinian terrorism early in the same week that a devastating Blizzard buried DC and the megalopolis of the East Coast?
Was it irony or judgement that during Bush 41's trip to Spain with Israel in the crosshairs that a Nor'easter that nearly destroyed his Kennebunkport compound?
Israel is the "Canary in the Coal Mine" when it comes to the fulfillment of prophecy. Join John as he goes in-depth on the state of the world in this week's update entitled "Anti-Zionism"
Scripture speaks of at least two distinct marks.
One in the Book of Ezekiel, the other in the Book of Revelation.
One is good, while the other is...well...not so good.
Both signify allegiance, one to the King of Kings, and Lord of Lords, and the other adversary who would be King.
Join John on an intense analysis of the Man Who Would Be King and his aspiration to become the UN Secretary General, a look at the Islamization of Europe (with a brief analysis from Bill Warner at www.politcalislam.com) plus a survey of the world economic crisis and much, much more.
The signs are clear, the warnings present, the stage is set. Which mark will you bear when the true King returns?

Don't worry, "It's all OK!" - at least that is what the politicians and media are saying. Mass Migration from the Mideast into a declining European population - what could go wrong? German women under mass sexual assault during News Years celebration, but the media doesn't want to say by who. Media blames 'conservatives' - but what sort of conservatives? Police shooting in Philly - The shooter says he did it for Isis, but Politicians say its not Islam. - John says its not OK, and he straightens out the tangle of illogic being used to confuse.
One of the signs of of the End Times is not just a falling away from Biblical teachings, but a blatant twisting and distortion of God's Word.
In this fiery 90 minute plus Prophecy Update called "War on the Truth" John takes the false teachers to task with a passion that needs to be duplicated in pulpits and pews worldwide. False prophets are making inroads into the evangelical church and millions are being led astray by the nonsense that they spew.
From the Middle East, to politics, to heretics and even a special appearance by Jacob Prasch via video message, this week's Prophecy Update should be a wake-up call to any Christian who has been lulled into ignorance of what the Word of God truly says. If there ever was a message to share with someone who is caught up in a church that is straying from the narrow and true path, this is the one!

Greetings to all of our brothers and sisters in Christ from around the world. At last count, these messages have been viewed in over 200 countries! We are amazed and humbled by your patronage and generous support of this ministry.
As the year draws to a close, John takes us on a journey recapping significant events of which every believer should take note. From ISIS to the Pope, this whirlwind tour sets the stage for the ultimate conflict and the return of Jesus Christ.
The members and attenders of Fellowship Bible Chapel want to sincerely thank you for your prayers as we look forward to 2016 with anticipating and a renewed hope. As long as the Lord tarries, we will continue to proclaim and defend His Word.
May God's Grace, Comfort and Blessing be overwhelmingly present in your lives during this upcoming year. May you find Peace in all circumstances, holding on to the promise that He is in control of all things.
From a Burka-wearing "Christian" Professor from Wheaton College, to racist dinners being served at Oberlin College, from a blasphemous rendition of a beloved carol by Hillsong, to Liquid Church's "Star Wars" message (complete with a nativity scene featuring Han, Leia, Chewy and R2D2), this week's update is both an advisory and a warning. Apostasy may already be in your church, and jihad is coming.
This week's core message is one reminding us to be vigilant on all fronts, both spiritually and physically. We must be prepared to defend the Gospel and call out false teachings emanating from America's pulpits, while also being observant and aware of your physical surroundings.
This warning struck close to home this past week on two fronts First, John personally witnessed a very physically fit male, dressed in a full ski mask, gloves and a t-shirt (it was 60 degrees in Columbus that day) taking multiple pictures of high rise buildings in downtown Columbus using his cell phone. Of course, being John, he followed and photographed this mystery man and notified the authorities. Second, he received a call from a contact in Southern California who had witnessed a group of 200-300 men walking down her suburban street. When she inquired as to what they were doing, they responded "we are claiming this neighborhood in the name of Allah."
There is no doubt that the President has kept one promise. "Fundamental Change" has come to America. The only remaining question is, how much more judgment is coming on America and the world before our Lord and Savior returns to claim His own?
Join John has he discusses these issues, and many others including the latest questionable actions by the Vatican on this week's update entitled "It's Time to Pay Attention"
It should be obvious to the majority whose eyes are open that we are likely not returning to the days where morality, discernment and common sense were attributes which were pursued with a purpose. It is sobering, yet amazing to consider the rapid downward spiral we are experiencing as a nation, as right becomes wrong, and wrong becomes right.
With American leadership making no bones about its bias in favor of Islam and against traditional Christianity, believers need to get used to this fact and deal with a new paradigm that Judeo-Christian beliefs and values are no longer held in high regard and those who support Israel are the real terrorists.
To the world and its rulers, we are the enemy, we are the extremists, we are the racists and we (and Israel) are the problem.
John takes us through a sobering examination of the state of the world in this week's update, "Get Used To It."
Delivered "Old School Style" John addresses the issues in the world in light of the San Bernadino terror attack.
Since the "War to End All Wars", American leadership in the world has not only been a stabilizing force for peace but it has been a staunch protector of the Israeli people since she returned to her land in 1948. Now, however, things have drastically changed.
Current American leadership has weakened our economy, opened our borders, ransacked our military, abandoned our allies, lectured the American people and denigrated those who follow Christ. At the same time, they have bolstered our enemies, empowered renegade leaders, back-stabbed Israel and promoted Islam. Has our government lost its collective mind, or are we seeing the promised "falling away" that must happen before the end comes?
8 years ago, an unknown candidate for President promised his blind followers that "fundamental change (was) coming to America". For once, he has actually spoken truth.
Join John as he explores the new state of the world and the implications on believers worldwide in this week's update entitled "Things Have Changed."
Title slide has the wrong date. Sorry about that. This is the November 22, 2015 Prophecy Update.
They claim to be Muslim, they quote the Quran, they claim their actions are in the name of the (false god) Allah, yet the progressive talking heads and liberal media types claim that none of the terrorist attacks were done in the name of a religious worldview, a movement that unashamedly admits that its ultimate goal is world domination.
"Convert or Die" is the calling card that is ISIS, Al Qaeda, Boko Haram and many others leave behind everywhere it touches. And yet, world political leaders are turning a blind eye and ignoring this fact and in doing so, imperil the lives of the citizens they have sworn to protect.
Grab your duct tape and wrap your head tightly because this is not an "Obama Free" Sunday. The things being spoken by the "leader of the free world" and the supposed "heir-apparent" candidate are so outrageous and unbelievable, we had to show you instead of tell you. While it may be painful, it is necessary. There is a balm for moments like these...it is the promise contained in the Word of God.
Logic and reason must be completely disregarded in order to lead from behind like this. Have we now passed the point of no return?
This is the full audio of Jacob Prasch's 2001 message called "A Chink the the Armor" referred to by John Haller in his January 3, 2016 Prophecy Update, "War on the Truth".
Paris. The City of Lights was turned dark when Islamic extremists imposed punishment on the French people through a coordinated attack that ended over one hundred lives. Their crime? Not being Muslim.
This planned and coordinated invasion and subjection of Europe to Islamic culture and practices will have long-term consequences. Unless and until world leaders admit that we are in a religious war, no nation will be safe from the effects of this cultural invasion. When combined with the "I need a safe space" mantra of the brain-dead college students on campuses all across the US who are now "offended" by the 1st Amendment guarantee of free speech, we are heading for a religious and intellectual conflict on a Biblical scale.
Lincoln once said, ""America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves." Brothers and sisters, as incredible as it may seem, we may see that very warning manifesting itself inside our own borders.
Join John as he address this issue, and many others, in this week's Prophecy Update entitled "Situation Normal? Time of Jacob's Trouble."
It is becoming increasingly obvious that discernment and wisdom are not gifts endowed upon many whom the masses have put in charge of their governments. The administration's recent demand that boys who identify as girls, but still have all the attributes that make them boys, must have access to girls showers in schools is just one of many decisions and "impositions" that just goes to prove that, as our friend Jacob Prasch once said, we have "lost the ability to reason."
From statistics that show that even those who claim to be evangelical are becoming more approving of homosexuality, to the Turkish President Erdogen who won re-election in a massive landslide, to the revelation of George Soros as being a primary source behind the massive immigration (read, "invasion") into Germany other countries in Europe, the world is looking for leadership and finding very few who are competent and wise.
This week's update entitled "A Real Famine" takes us on a journey through another week of wacky to outrageous to terrifying; substantiating the fact that we may have now traveled so far away from God's Word that we may not make it back as a society. The current path can only lead to destruction.
One of the signs of the end times is a proliferation of deception and false teaching. That time may be here, as the deceivers have infiltrated formerly solid evangelical churches. In addition to John's broad update on the state of the world, be prepared to be shocked with what you see and hear as John exposes the heresy and false teachings that are infiltrating congregations and universities worldwide.
From Liberty University's hosting of Brian Houston, to Passion Church's Halloween intro in Minneapolis, MN, leaders are straying from strong Biblical messages to entertainment venues where style outweighs substance.
John also addresses:
The Fall of Germany - Will Merkel survive the Muslim invasion she invited?
The Oslo Accords. Will this be the fulfillment of the covenant spoken of in Daniel, Chapter 9?
China's 1 child policy. China's population growth is unsustainable so their government has been gracious enough to allow a 2nd child.
Oh...and by the way. All of you who stood in line at Chick-Fil-a for them taking a stand on traditional marriage? You've been duped. Wait until you see a recent event they sponsored.
The move toward a one-world, one-currency system spoken of by the prophets plus much more is covered in this week's Prophecy Update entitled "Wolf Alert."
The Convergence is occurring and moving more rapidly at each turn. Get Ready!
This week's update is jam-packed with so many topics and so little time, so here's a list of just some of the items will be addressed in this week's Prophecy Update entitled "False Religion". John's interview on Love for the Truth can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0EwI3zgJzNk
Brazil's Pension Program (it is unsustainable)
The potential collapse of the Saudi Economy in 5 years
Worldwide Christian Persecution
Oprah Winfry, the High Priestess of World Religions
The Parliament of World Religions
Prominent Leftists and those who adore them with "Itching Ears" Obama, the Pope and Brian McLaren
Isaiah 17 fulfilled? Drone footage of Damascus (not quite, but almost a heap of rubble)
The Muslim Invasion of Europe.
And a dire warning to any who love Jesus with all their hearts, mind and souls. If you church is toying with false teachers and their misleading, deceptive teachings, get out. Get out now, and as our friend, Jacob Prasch says, "Take as many people as you can with you. You are on a rescue mission."
(WARNING: There are videos that start at approximately the 51:00 mark that contain footage from security cameras that capture recent knife and vehicle attacks by Palestinians against Israeli citizens. The footage tells the real story of what is happening, juxtaposed with the media narrative to demonstrate the bias that exists against Israel and her people. Parental discretion is advised.)
What are the signs of the end"? Is it a confirmation of a peace treaty with Israel? Is it an indication that the world is turning against her longtime ally? Or could it be the beginning of the "Third Intifada" that could push Israel to the point where they declare "Enough is Enough?
Or is it simply that John wore a tie to do this update?
Grab your duct tape, wrap it securely around your head and get ready, because what John is about to share will surely make your head explode.
From Putin's elaborate chess game (compared to Obama's checkers), from the Southern Poverty Law Center's designation of Christian Groups as Hate Groups (not based upon a tendency toward violence, but just because of what they believe) to the false narrative being spread by the news media and the Palestinian activists, this update is a journey to the edge of the precipice. Get ready to take it all in as John shares his thoughts on some of the "Signs of the End" in this week's edition of the Prophecy Update.
There are warnings all around. Some obvious, others not. If you are in tune with God's Word and staying focused on His plan, you will not be caught off guard by unexpected threats. Join John as he brings us updates from around the world along with a prophetic warning to be aware in this week's update entitled "Canaries in the Coal Mine."
This week, John looks at the Large Hadron Collider known as CERN, the Russian military movements into Syria, the death toll in the Hajj which could lead to war between Saudi Arabia and Iran due to the death of nearly 500 Iranian Muslims.
As if that weren't enough, John exposes the DOJ's endorsement of an international police force (including advancing the goals of Agenda 21 and the 2030 Agenda) including government warnings against "Far Right Extremism" (translated, "Christians").
Finally, Rev. Jeremiah Wright reveals his true nature and that of our President in a clip recorded on October 10, 2015 on the National Mall during the 20th Anniversary of the "Million Man March."
In days gone by, hard working Americans coal miners took canaries underground as an early detection system to the threat of carbon monoxide. For the Christian, our early detection system is found in the study of the Word of God, and a keen awareness of world events that are converging with an every increasing pace.
The Persians invented Chess...but the Russians mastered it. This week's update by FBC's John Haller looks at the shuffling of power in the Middle East and the potential impact on Israel, the recent attack in Oregon that singled out followers of Christ and yet another ACLU lawsuit that demands that a Catholic hospital provide abortive services.
What is Putin up to, and how will the power void and projection of weakness unmistakably signaled by the US President affect events worldwide? So many pieces on the board are in play and the end times scenario is playing out right on schedule, just as God predicted. All the pieces are falling into place. Who will make the next move?
Rainbow Police, mass migrations, the Pope in Congress, violent events everywhere, stampeding Muslims, George Will calls the Pope a False Prophet - Things you don't see everyday are becoming the norm. Are these like the times of Lot? Are these like the times of Noah?
Russia is outfitting Syrian airports with improved runways, modern attack helicopters, fighter jets, and barracks. Does that sound like preparation for Ezekiel 38 & 39?.
Why does the Pope talk more about Climate Change and Wealth Redistribution than abortion and homosexual marriage? Is it because the religion of the Pope is leftism?
Catholics keep crucifying Jesus, false teachers join in praise of the Pope, Evangelical leaders are being sucked in to this apostasy - Its an End Times, Box-Checking, False Religion Hype-a-Palooza tour! Join John as he pierces the corporate veil that is the Catholic Church and ends in a provocative analysis of Ezekiel 8 in this week's Prophecy Update.
(For additional teaching on the need to refute false teachers and prophets, please check out our first hour message today at the below link. Both Pastor Steve and John Haller delivered a powerful message this morning in our first service entitled "Elders: Refuting False Teachers")
All eyes are focused on September 23, 24 and 25, 2015 as the Pope visits America, Mahmoud Abbas promises to drop a "bombshell" at the end of his UN Speech and Congress continues to wrestle with a treaty that will certainly arm Iran with nuclear weapons.
Scripture speaks of a time such as this, and describes the three main players who will rock the cradle of the world. The coming Antichrist, the False Prophet and the Beast.
It also talks of a time where folks will be moving "to and fro".
It speaks of one who will confirm the "covenant with the many" and usher in a false peace.
And it speaks of a time when followers of Christ will be persecuted for their faith.
Many world leaders are currently stepping into the proverbial spotlight as the world looks for someone to manage the immigrant crisis that has all eyes focused on the Middle East. Power players such as the Pope, Barack Obama, Abbas, Erdogen, Putin and a host of others are auditioning for this end time trilogy of evil. Do any of these men fit the descriptions of the deceivers who come in the end times, or will a relatively unknown, charismatic leader burst onto the scene with all the answers the world wants to hear? What characteristics do each have in common? And how will these unholy alliances impact believers worldwide?
John addresses these and many other questions, including an analysis of whether or not Europe getting "paid back" for their treatment of the Jews during the German assault to eliminate them from the face of the earth. in this week's update entitled "New World Disorder".
