The Big Lie and Big Liars

Lies kill.

Most people don’t understand that, but it’s the truth. I’ve seen this truth with my own eyes. I’ve heard it with my own ears. And, we have spent too long, enjoying the lies that people tell.

Too many have died, and many that haven’t are walking casualties to the lies that people tell. I have friends who have suffered and died because of these lies, and I want them to stop.

Of course, they won’t stop, because the lying liars benefit too much from the lies that they tell. The question is, whether you will hold the liars accountable.

If you do, it just might save your life.

Andy Andrews wrote an interesting booklet:

How Do You Kill 11 Million People?: Why the Truth Matters More Than You Think

It’ll take you only half an hour to read it, and I’ve heard that it’s worth the read. If you have a Kindle reader or app, it’s only a dollar. But, I can sum up the way that you can kill 11 million people in one short sentence:

You lie to them.

That’s all that you need to do. Of course, you need to be clever in your lies. There’s even a ‘science’ to the technique of lying. And, for decades, I’ve watched the practitioners of ‘The Big Lie’, go about their business of binding their victims in chains of darkness. And, I have marveled at why so many people willingly submit to lies.

Why do we do this?

I Am Just As Vulnerable

And yes, I include myself in this willingness to believe in lies. I’m not any different than you are. If, by God’s grace, I have more skill or experience – which I doubt – it’s not really all that much more than you. So, I count myself as being as vulnerable to lies as you.

Therefore, I write this as much for myself, as for you. And yes, I need to keep reminding myself that there are more lies out there than truth. I need to keep reminding myself that people speak lies, with great fervor and passion, believing that they are true.

I need to keep reminding myself that I had some rather negative views of Israel, before I went to live in Israel, in 1992. I was duped into believing that Israel was mistreating the Arabs. I was duped into believing that Israel was abusing the Palestinians.

I was wrong, and I must never forget that. Ever.

Furthermore, just because someone believes a thing to be true… well …it doesn’t mean that it IS true. Look no further than the Muslims and their passion for death. They are willing – even desiring – to die for their false faith, a faith that is fairly easy to prove as false.

Adolf Hitler

Then, there’s Hitler, who rallied the Germans around his foul and evil banner, and sent them off to murder 11 million Germans and Jews. Before he was done, 25 million Russians were dead. Millions of dead Brits, Canadians, Americans and French were strewn across the battlefields of Europe. Countless civilians were raped and murdered by Hitler’s armies. And, Japan would never have launched her war against the US, were it not the belief that America could not afford a ‘two front’ war.

In total, more than 80 million died, because one man could lie with conviction.

Yes, Hitler had lots and lots of help. Goebbles was a master of propaganda, and American industrialists gave Hitler the money and resources that he needed. But, they still needed a figurehead.

Someone who could lie with passion and conviction.

Rick Wiles

Last week, as I was preparing to write this article, someone presented information that was such an example of heartless and soul-destroying corruption, that I had to stop thinking about this piece, and turn to something more important – revealing a teacher of deception, who stood among us. You can read what I wrote, here:

SPECIAL REPORT: Rick Wiles, Deceiver

I wrote that with a very heavy heart, as I always do, when someone professes Christ while teaching damnable heresy. Even worse, there was a time when I considered him to be a brother in Christ. I thought well of Rick, once upon a time, but I could not allow feelings to stand in the way of truth and duty. And, I find that far too many have allowed deception to flourish, because of the feelings that they had for the deceiver.

The Seminaries

What is wrong with Christians, today?

Why are they so willing to believe the lies?

It starts with the pastors, but even THEY aren’t the root cause. When you look past the pastors, you see the seminaries.

Ah yes, the seminaries.

I call them the cemeteries, because that is where you go to die. And yes, I really mean that. Death lives in the seminaries, and we keep sending our bright young children there, to learn… what?

The Bible?

You go to a seminary to learn the Bible?

Why do you need to go to a seminary to learn the Bible?

I can tell you that you DO NOT need to go to a seminary to learn the Bible. You don’t even need to go to a seminary to learn how to manage people. You don’t need a seminary to learn how to do evangelism. You don’t need a seminary to learn history, geography, or anything else.

What do you need a seminary for?

You need a seminary to act as a central repository of lies and disinformation. If you don’t believe me, then I would need to wonder at your ability to see the obvious corruption within our churches.

The Universities

The same goes for our secular universities, many of which started out as seminaries. All the ‘Ivy League’ schools were seminaries, and I spent more than five years at a university that taught lies from morning to night – and once was a seminary.

Go Bulldogs!

Why Do We Believe The Lies?

I want to get to some personal experiences, but I need to ask you some questions, first:

Why are our societies collapsing around us?

Why have our morals fallen so quickly?

Why do we believe things that are obvious lies?

Ultimately, because we want to. Yes, that’s right. We enjoy the lies that we believe. We revel in them – especially the lies that tell us how wonderful and good we are.

Sorry kids, but we are all despicable, disgusting, and deceptive. We are ignorant and dumber than a box of rocks AND a bag of hammers. If you need an explanation, just read your history book. Any accurate history book is written proof that we are all stupid and in love with our own sense of greatness.

Take the current toxic mix of mainstream journalism and the Democrat Party…

Do you see ANY proof that Trump has been collaborating with the Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin?


Neither do I.

So, why do we persist with this charade?

Why does the mainstream media talk and talk and talk and talk some more about this utterly ridiculous Russian Collusion Dossier?

It’s simple, really. If they stop talking about this ‘dossier’, then they will need to look in the mirror and call themselves cheap prostitutes. They will need to tell themselves that they have been living – and continue to live – a lie. And, they can’t do that.

Mike Adams – A Taiwan Example

Let me give you some personal examples.

BACK INTO THE CLOSET: Why U.S. reporters are not allowed to write about rainbow events in nations where being gay is still condemned

Mike Adams is a lying liar. My wife and I were only a few miles away from this event, and we even knew someone doing triage after the fire. My wife – a native speaker of Mandarin – knew all about this fire. The Taiwanese reached out to Mike Adams, to tell him the truth.

But, Mike wasn’t interested in the truth.

Mike is a dirtbag, like all the other dirtbags in the mainstream media. He’s no better than any of them, and he has slandered a country that I care a lot about: Taiwan. He should be ashamed of himself, but he isn’t. He’s making too much money.

Mike Adams does NOT love the Truth in any way.

Journalists In Jerusalem

As I have told you, I lived in Israel for 15 years. You are probably sick of hearing me say that, but it was a useful experience that showed me the dark underbelly of the mainstream media.

Countless times, I would see one thing for myself, and something completely different from US and International news services. It was as if there were two different realities inhabiting the same space.

Why were they doing this?

Because the truth isn’t as interesting as the lies.

I’ve met a lot of journalists in Jerusalem. Lots and lots of them. There are even a couple of them that I count as friends. One even reads this newsletter, from time to time. And, the one thing that I’ve heard from almost all of them, is that Jerusalem is a GIGANTIC steppingstone for the last big posting in a journalist’s career: Washington D.C.

All the big names need to get posted to Jerusalem, before the real plum assignment. If you don’t make it to Jerusalem, you don’t make it to Washington. And, you don’t make it into the ‘big leagues’ if you haven’t done your time in Jerusalem.

And, you will NEVER make it to Washington, D.C., if you tell the truth about Israel. If you don’t trash Israel at every opportunity, you will NOT succeed in your career, if you are an ambitious journalist.

Why is that?

First of all, the truth is boring, and you can’t sell news if you keep telling the truth too much. You also need to think hard to make all the facts fit together, so it’s a lot of work.

Have you noticed that journalists love to interview Palestinian women who cry over the ‘abuse’ that they claim to have received by the Israeli government?

Right. Crying women sell newspapers. Talking about how they did it to themselves, that it is the Palestinian government that is responsible… that doesn’t sell newspapers.

You’ll also notice that journalists don’t speak Arabic. If they did, they’d hear what the Palestinians tell each other. The Palestinians think that we are idiots who will fall for any sob story. Unfortunately, we keep proving them right.

Maybe we should stop?

But, there’s something else that’s a little harder to quantify, and it’s about the soul of the average journalist. And, it’s about that sense of wanting to change the world for ‘their team’.

Most don’t think in terms of words like ‘their team’, but some do. Most have this utopian idea of some warm fuzzy better-best-world, and that dream of a perfect world is being blocked by ugly people like the Israelis and the Christians. And yes, that really is how they think.

Journalism Students

Remember that journalism students go to journalism school to ‘change the world’ and to ‘make it a better place’. They do NOT go to journalism school to learn how to tell the truth. You will NOT hear that from either a journalism professor or a journalism student. (Although some will give ‘lip service’ to some ideal like truth.)

The Truth is an unacceptable idea. Truth is fraught with uncomfortable ideas about how awful we all are. Truth reveals that we are all selfish, arrogant, uncaring, barbarians. Truth reveals that we are all dishonest, that we are all greedy, and that we will step on each other to get what we want.

Oh, and the Truth is a lot of work, while lies come easy.

There’s also something else to think about, and it ties in with my antipathy towards cemeta… er …seminaries:

Students are dazzled by their professors.

If you graduated from University before the age of 25, you probably have a favorite professor that you recall with great fondness. I have two, and they BOTH consider me to be a dreadful mistake and a waste of their time. But, that’s me.

Anyway, people are very malleable until they reach the age of 25. After that, their brains stop changing so rapidly. For instance, learning a second language before the age of 25, is far easier than if you try to do so AFTER 25. And, there’s something even more important.

Before the age of 25, the ideas and opinions of other people mean more to you, than afterwards. After 25, you are less swayed into doing some of the crazy stuff that you might have done when you were in college. Other people have less influence on you, after the age of 25.

That’s why the army wants you to enlist at 18, or join the ROTC, when you get to college. That’s why my first university didn’t like the fact that I still lived with my parents, while attending college. It’s why I didn’t start to shake free of some of the heresy that I was brought up to believe, until AFTER I was 25 – and also after God started hammering on me.

(And, God is STILL hammering on me!)

The Big Lie

Let’s turn back to Hitler. He is given credit for creating the idea of ‘The Big Lie’ – from his book, Mein Kampf. Here’s the relevant quote, from Herr Schicklgruber’s work:

All this was inspired by the principle—which is quite true within itself—that in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods.

It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation. For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying.

 – Die Schwein Schicklgruber (aka, Adolf Hitler)

(Ja, Hitler war ein schwein! Jawohl!)

Bernie The Catholic Priest

However, that pig (schwein), Adolf Hitler did NOT write Mein Kampf (‘My Struggle’ in German). The person who wrote it, was this guy:

Bernhardt (or Bernhard) Stempfle

Bernhardt (or Bernhard) Stempfle

That certainly doesn’t LOOK like Adolf Dirtbag Hitler. And, the name doesn’t sound all that familiar, either. That’s because Hitler didn’t want the REAL writer of ‘Mein Kampf’ to become known.

Have you ever wondered how Hitler could write that book while he was in prison?

Well I often did, and I only found out who really wrote ‘Mein Kampf’ just a few years ago. The next question is…

Who is this Bernhardt guy?

Well, Bernie was a Catholic Priest. A Hieronymite Priest, although he didn’t look all that Hieronymite to me. Whatever the case, it was a Catholic priest who first penned the idea of ‘The Big Lie’, and that makes sense. The Roman Catholic Church has been telling some real whoppers for more than a thousand years.

The Roman Catholic Big Lie

They should know all about something like this.

The Big Lie about the Roman Catholic Church (RCC) is that, for a thousand years, the only Christians in Europe were RCC christians. And the RCC is NOT Christian. The problem is that we have evidence that there were lots of Christians that weren’t RCC. And, I am a walking, talking, breathing bit of evidence.

The church that I was baptized into, can trace its line all the way back to The Disciples and John the Baptist. I no longer believe that such a genealogy is important, but I can say that I am NOT a Protestant. The Lutherans, Anglicans, Presbyterians, and Methodists are all Protestants and come from the Catholic Church.

The original Baptists are not – and never have been – Protestants.

But, the RCC would have you believe that this is all wrong. The RCC wants you to believe that no other forms of Christianity existed, outside of the RCC. And, they tried to make that the truth by killing as many Christians as they could, during their thousand year reign of terror.

It’s funny how trying to kill off Christians never works!

However, this Big Lie is so big, that it’s hard to get rid of it. The RCC has more money than we Baptist types, so we continue to have this lie exist.

Could someone please tell Ann Barnhardt, that it’s okay to climb down off of the RCC perch?

I like Ann, but she has this mistaken idea that only the RCC has ‘authority’. There really are churches that have true authority, that she can go to, and actually get baptized – instead of sprinkled, which is NOT baptism.

Okay, lessee… the next one …ah yes.

9/11 – The Big Lie of September 11th

We’ve had some ‘Big Lies’ in American history, but there is one that seems to sit right at the top of all of ’em. It’s bigger than the JFK assassination. It’s bigger than the explosion of the USS Maine. It’s even bigger than the foolish lie that the founding fathers of the United States were Christian. It’s bigger than ‘The Bay of Pigs’. It’s bigger even than the Gulf of Tonkin ‘incident’ (ie., false flag) that set off the Vietnam War.

(Did you notice that JFK had to be
assassinated, before America could
enter the Vietnam War?)

Oh, you noticed that, too. Good.

No, the biggest of all the ‘Big Lies’ was 9/11. It’s bigger than the Reichstag Fire that brought Hitler to power – although, it was REALLY similar! It was bigger than that pitiful excuse for invading Iraq.


Because the explanation that the government gives for how the World Trade Center buildings fell… is impossible.

I don’t care how you slice this. I don’t care what explanation that you give, there is no way for WTC 1, WTC 2 and WTC 7 to fall, the way that they fell, for the reasons given. There is no physical way. None. Zip. Zero.

For buildings one and two, jet fuel – kerosene – does not burn hot enough to melt steel. Ever. And the smoke pouring out of WTC One and WTC Two was black. That means that the temperature was too low to melt steel. Furthermore, even if the steel at that high a level HAD melted in the way that they said… for those buildings to fall at free-fall-speed, right on top of their footprint…


Or, should I say, that it’s only possible if there was a ‘controlled demolition’. But, this is where the concept of ‘The Big Lie’ comes in. Just as with the Reichstag Fire, a lie THAT big is believed because people cannot conceive of anyone lying THAT BIG.

The fall of World Trade Center Building Seven is even less possible. In that case, the building fell at ‘free fall speed’ – just like a controlled demolition – because of burning furniture and carpet.

Burning furniture?

Burning carpet?

Could bring down a building, at free fall speed?

Just like a controlled demolition?


They really must think that we’re stupid. They really must, because there’s no other way to explain why they would try to pass this off on us. And, the problem is that they are right.

We really ARE that stupid, because we really DID buy this ‘Big Lie’!

Then, we took this Big Lie and killed a lot of people with it. I was in Israel at the time, working on a computer manual, when it happened. I remember where I was. I remember who told me that the a plane had hit the World Trade Center. I remember watching live as the second plane hit.

And no, Israel didn’t do it, either. Mossad and the CIA have NEVER worked well together. Never. Only on an ‘ad hoc’ basis have they ever cooperated well – only then, in Central and South America.

Who benefited from this Big Lie?

The CIA.

Saudi Arabia and the Gulf Arabs.

And, you probably didn’t know that the Saudi intelligence and the CIA have worked well together for a very, very long time – pretty much since the 1950s.

My hope is that this puts into perspective the current situation vis-a-vis Donald Trump. The amount of corruption lying just underneath the surface is horrendous. And, it threatens to break open EVERYTHING.

Important Movies

There is an interesting movie that I recommend that EVERYONE see at least once:

JFK to 911 Everything Is A Rich Man’s Trick

YouTube shortlink:

(3 hours, 27 minutes, 55 seconds)

YouTube is trying to stop this movie from getting out, but they’re having some trouble because too many people know about it. But, YouTube is run by dirtbags and staffed by dirtbags. And, dirtbags will be dirtbags.

If you have trouble watching the video, go here:

That’s the website for the documentary, and there are a lot of interesting videos at the bottom of that page.

By the way, I profiled that video, here:

There is MORE information and a couple more videos that you should see, if you can. I cannot stress enough how important all of this is.

Even Bigger Big Lies

With all of that deceit. With all of the lies that have caused hundreds of millions of people to be murdered… there are even bigger lies. I essentially profiled one of them last week:

No, Rick isn’t ‘The Big Lie’, but what he believes, is a part of one group of Big Lies. Most Post-Tribbers are Preterists, and your soul is truly in danger, should you believe such a horrendous lie. Preterism is a very Catholic and Protestant idea. And, it is something that no Christian should EVER follow. Ever!

God said that He would erase from the Book of Life, the name of anyone who takes away from the Book of Revelation. That is what Rick Wiles has done. That is what Preterism does.

If you need an explanation of Preterism, go here:

If you need to know what I am talking about, in my mention of Rick Wiles, go here:

I hated to write that, but I had no choice. The heresy was too great.

One More, Blinding Big Lie

Unfortunately, there’s one more Big Lie, that I need to mention. It also comes from the Jesuits, as so many ‘Big Lies’ do:

When I first came into contact with the idea of the Pretribulation Rapture, I was shocked. When I asked someone to explain it to me, I was shocked again. And, I keep getting shocked when I ask someone to prove that their belief in a pretribulation rapture is true.

I have yet to see ANYONE give me a verse that even DESCRIBES a pretribulation rapture!

Please don’t get me wrong. There are worse things to believe. But, to believe in something that the Bible does not describe is shocking to me. It also blinds you to the warnings that I’ve been giving you for seven years.

Belief in a pretribulation rapture will put you to sleep, right at the time when you need to be the most awake. Please. Stop this foolishness. Stop the Jesuit Big Lie. Stop believing in something that does not exist in the Bible.

And please.




A Friday Note:

I try to write these articles on Thursday, to make sure that Mrs. Little and I get out the door on time to teach our Bible class on Friday nights. So, this is an additional note about something that pertains to the above, that I read just an hour ago:

Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

 – Matthew 18:4

Jesus wasn’t talking about the start of your faith in Christ. He wasn’t talking how you begin, but about how you LIVE, about how you READ THE BIBLE.

We are beset by Big Lies – both inside and outside our churches. It’s time to have a childlike approach to the Bible. And that means accepting what it says as being true. And, if it does not specifically say something, then you specifically cannot say that it is true. And, a childlike faith would NEVER, EVER twist the words of the one that he or she loves.

It is past time to humble ourselves before God and accept what He says, as He said it. And, we need to stop listening to those who tell us The Big Lies.


I truly hope that you’ll be ready for this

A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished.Proverbs 22:3

4 thoughts on “The Big Lie and Big Liars”

  1. Hello Mr. Little!

    I have recently started reading your blog–I’m a mom and haven’t had time to send my questions, so, this is kind of a comment/question hybrid…thing. It’s based on multiple articles I have read on your blog.

    I loved this article. I nodded a lot. Also, the anti-Israel stuff always made me very confused Israel has always been “the friend” and the good guys to me and my family–we were always pro-Israel (still am). First time I heard someone sympathize with the Arabs was when I was with some friends who were in the military. I whole-heartedly disagreed with her comment but it caught me off guard, and I was young (twenty-ish), and these people were all older than me.

    The lies about Islam are insane and hard to believe that people fall for them, but they are deceived.

    I have been studying this idea of a “pretribulation rapture” an idea that I accepted without question from my church (from my childhood not my current) for…a long time. I wasn’t until God called me to really read Revelation and start searching that I started to have lots of questions.

    I’m trying to keep this short, but my question now is…how long would the six seals be? Is there a length of time described in the Bible?

    I believe (not sure of anything on this at all) At the sixth seal we see Jesus–right? So the “great tribulation” that is referred to AFTER the sixth seal (Rev. 7:14) must be the resurrection of the saints and the rapture of those that survive all that, right?

    I’m not sure. I have been talking non-stop (just about) with my church friends and my family about this topic. Because. I am only interested in the truth. Even if it’s not what I want to hear (I don’t want to have itching ears).

    Some friends are harder than others because I can tell they do not really want to hear “bad” news. I’m navigating some choppy waters of emotion with some people, at least that is my intuition talking–we’ve had very good conversations that are very kind and filled with grace…but not answers.

    However, God called me to tears when the churches folded so early with the coronavirus and I have felt very strongly that things have changed, and I have been feeling this burning desire to have answers. I have been feeling closer to God than ever before. I’m frustrated I cannot do more for Him, but I have to be confident that I will be obedient where I am to His calling–when it comes. And be obedient daily.

    I have been reading your blog so forgive me if it’s answered very clearly somewhere! Also, I have mom-brain and I am interrupted all the time so…yes there is that.

    Is there a rapture before the “wrath” or not? If the ones the “came out of the great tribulation” are the only ones that are mentioned…what about the people that came before that time period; in other words, when does that period start?

    I read that verse Revelation 7:14 as saying those people (because of their faith in Jesus) were removed from the tribulation that would continue on after that.

    Okay, I’m trying to illustrate my confusion–let’s say someone named Bob was born and he died 1910, as a Christian. He led a peaceful life–now fast forward to the “Great Multitude” now…he did not come out of a “great tribulation” is he NOT saved? Or just not mentioned here?

    Is this a special group that washed their robes in the blood of the lamb–or is there a gap between the resurrection of the saints and the return of Jesus where the “gathering” of both those asleep in Christ and those who go through the whole book of Revelation, happens?

    Or am I missing something completely obvious? I’m hoping you will have a clear answer. I generally pray over something and God reveals it to me and I’m not sure if I’m getting in the way of myself, or what. I really could use some help.

    Most people I talk to are completely unsure of when the Rapture happens (of if it will happen at all)–or they think we go through the entire ordeal (seals, trumpets, plagues, and bowls).

    So far it looks to me like Jesus shows his face after the seals 1-6 and that sounds like (because of what it says in Revelation 7:14) THAT means seals 1-6 are the “Great Tribulation”. Please, please correct me, and direct me to some scripture! I really appreciate you taking time out of your day to read this and answer me if you have the time.

    God bless you brother John!

    P.S. yes we are all dumb and I will nod fervently whenever you mention that we are as dumb as hammers and rocks–and I too wince at my past sin and sometimes I just turn to a massive pile of tears and regret before God brings me back out of it. Christ truly is a gift. It’s hard to really say how big of a gift he is. I beg for his mercy constantly because of my dumbness. God bless you again brother John!

    • Hi Casey,

      Sorry to be so late in responding. I’m being pulled in a couple of different directions, so I don’t always keep track of comments like I should.

      First of all… thank you.

      You are being thoughtful and doing your best to understand. That’s more important than anything that I – or anyone else – will ever tell you. It’s called loving the truth, and it’s the hardest thing to do. But, if you stick with it, you will be blessed.

      I’ve written about Israel since ’97, although I don’t have any examples online of articles written before 2006. But, you can get an eyeful of some of what I’ve written, here:

      As for the Great Tribulation, we have some time before it happens. How much is hard to say. But, unfortunately… we’re going through it. Right now, I’m more concerned about the disasters that happen BEFORE that moment in time. If you want a better look at what I’m talking about, go here:

      and here:

      I am currently updating When Jacob Returns. When that’s done, I will start on Ezekiel’s Fire. But, read them now. To be forewarned is to be forearmed.

      As for timing and length of time, it’s hard to say. We’ll know more and have a better picture of what’s coming as we get closer to these events. The seals could have been opened a while ago, or not. The seals might not be opened until later. Or, not. Again, it’s hard to pinpoint with precision. And, it’s far far better to be humble about these things than to stand up and preach error.

      As for those who are saved, Bob is fine. However, those who GO THROUGH THE TRIBULATION will have a special place in Heaven. I don’t want to go through the Tribulation, but I know that there will be special rewards for those who do.

      I’m not sure that I handled all of your questions, so feel free to keep asking them.

      Don’t worry about not understanding everything. None of us actually do. The best that I’ve been able to claim is that I understand more than I did ten years ago.

      So, keep plugging along, Casey. You’re doing fine.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

      • Hello again Brother John,

        Thank you so much for your reply–I hope this comment is in the right spot–I clicked the little blue button from my email.

        I have been reading Ezekiel’s Fire, and need more time to really grasp it. I’m still reading my Bible every day and praying for God’s wisdom on His word.

        I think that the next question I would like to ask you is “when does the Bible say the tribulation is?”

        To me, I read the sixth seal when it talks about the “great multitude” seems to imply that the great tribulation has ended? They “came out” of it. So, I read that as the seals themselves are THE great tribulation. I cannot seem to understand where chronologically everything else goes. That is the most confusing part of Revelation for me at this point.

        I read a very good article that supported a chronological reading–and that’s how I have been reading Revelation myself–I thought of it as chronological in general anyway. But if Revelation is not chronological, why would God write that way?

        I hope to hear from you soon. I like to take time and focus on my response so I don’t do weird typos or…make absolutely no sense at all. Haha. My toddler makes this very difficult during the day. So, I’m just getting back to you now! Gah!

        I appreciate your response, and I know how busy life can be–so I understand if you don’t get back to me right away.

        So far, I haven’t been able to have a very fruitful conversation with any of my church family or loved ones who are believers, on this concept.

        I would appreciate your insights on the Chronological order issue of Revelation.

        Are the events of Revelation Chronological? If not, why is it not chronological? Where does the Bible say the “Great Tribulation” begins and ends?

        I hope you are doing well!



        • Hi Casey,

          Toddlers? Wow. I both envy you and commiserate with your burden. They demand all of our attention, and because we love them, we give it. May God bless you in the awesome task of raising this little one.

          As for timing, you ask a question that few are willing to answer, because much of this is a mystery. And, I believe that this was deliberate. We are not meant to understand fully, until the time is right – which is actually a theme that runs through the Bible. Understanding comes at the right time and place, for those who are willing to submit to what God says. Those who are not willing… well …they are always the ones to suffer the consequences. (Just as when Jesus came the first time.)

          The timing of Revelation is hard. There are obvious symbols involved, so we know that not everything is completely literal. The question is… how much is symbolic, and how much isn’t? And, with the question of symbolism, comes the question of chronology.

          It is clear that the seals come one after another. (Although, they do not need to end when the next seal begins.)

          It is clear that the trumpets come one after another.

          It is clear that the vials/bowls come one after another.

          It is clear that the order of events is seals then trumpets then vials/bowls.

          Woven around this is the story of the Antichrist, the Great Tribulation, The Beast, The Great Whore, and at the end… the Millennium.

          Have you noticed that it’s hard to say where to place the Antichrist in context with the seals and trumpets?

          Anyone who claims that they KNOW is deceived. But, since human beings don’t like to say that they do not know something… we either stay quiet on the subject, or engage in outrageous speculation. And, God warned us about ‘speculating’ in the last four verses of Revelation. Those of us who have at least some understanding of God, know that speculating is dangerous.

          Having said that, there are a few observations that we can make, that hopefully will not block the understanding that the Holy Spirit will one day give us, when the time is right. So, let me offer the following:

          The prophetic portion of Revelation appears to be laid out five basic time periods, like this:

          The preparation. The tribulation. The wrath. The millennial reign. The end.

          The question is… where do we place the Antichrist in this?

          Of course, WE don’t. God does that. But, it seems that many have been placing themselves in the place of God.

          Remember one thing that’s important:

          Satan does not possess the Antichrist until AFTER he loses the war in heaven (Revelation 12). Assuming that I’m getting all this right, Satan is not cast down to earth, until AFTER he loses the heavenly war. And, I find it interesting that this war in heaven is won for this reason:

          And they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they loved not their lives even unto death.

          – Revelation 12:11 (ESV)

          Because we were willing to sacrifice our lives, Satan and his angels were defeated.

          How many patriot christians understand that?

          Satan is defeated by the sacrifice of Jesus and by our willingness to die for Him. Patriot christians are not willing to die for Christ, so they are not a part of the victory over Satan. And, if you aren’t a part of the victory, you are a part of the problem.

          Okay, back to the point.

          So, is Satan cast down to earth during the seals? or, during the trumpets?

          Also, what happens in between the sixth seal and the seventh and last seal?

          The marking of the 144,000 Israelis.

          Yes. Israelis.

          These are the descendants of Jacob, and they cannot be sealed until AFTER the children of Jacob have returned to God. after. After. AFTER. Furthermore, these children of Jacob are a subset. A group WITHIN the larger body of believers who are the children of Jacob.

          This return of Jacob to God is a vital marker in the discussion of the Last Days. The Return of Jacob is a sign, and people are NOT paying attention to this sign because they believe that Jacob will not return until AFTER the Antichrist is defeated. But, this is deeply incorrect.

          Jacob MUST Return BEFORE Satan is cast down to earth. Not after.

          This is the point of my book, that I am in the process of revising. When Jacob Returns is important, and we are not paying attention. This needs to stop.


          And, since the Taiwan Trash Truck came by as I was writing this, I had a chance to think a bit more. And, something occurred to me as I was waiting for the TTT to arrive. And, it’s a point for those who understand Ezekiel’s Fire. Notice this verse:

          12 When he opened the sixth seal, I looked, and behold, there was a great earthquake, and the sun became black as sackcloth, the full moon became like blood, 13 and the stars of the sky fell to the earth as the fig tree sheds its winter fruit when shaken by a gale. 14 The sky vanished like a scroll that is being rolled up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place.

          – Revelation 6:12-14

          Do the stars disappear?

          No, because we see them again, later in Revelation 8. So, what is happening?

          A micronova.

          The Bible doesn’t say that exactly, but we know a few things about micronovas. In a micronova, the outer layer of a star explodes outward. And, that outer layer is full of all kinds of material that – when it cools down – will obscure our ability to see past it. Eventually, it will sweep past the earth and the stars will appear again. The main thing is that this micronova will happen at the same time as Isaiah 30, Ezekiel 38-39 and Zechariah 12. It will be terrifying to the elites, but it will be incredible to those of us who survive.

          But… um …survival will be a challenge. But less of a challenge, if we are prepared.

          Okay, ’nuff said about Ezekiel’s Fire. That book needs to be updated, too. Back to the Antichrist.

          Now, does the Antichrist rise during the seventh seal?

          Does he rise during the first trumpet?

          When do the ten kings-without-a-kingdom rise?

          Is the first seal about the rise of the system of these ten kings?

          Has the first seal already been opened?

          Will the first seal be opened soon?

          How will we know?

          Okay, I did not expect to write all that when I started to write this response, but this is an important topic. So important, that I think that it should go into the Friday release of The Shock Letter.

          Thank you for asking that question, Casey. May God bless you, your little one, and your whole family.

          Yours in Christ,

          John Little
