Where there is no vision, the people perish:
but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.
And, as Janet Napolitano, the former Secretary of U.S. Homeland Security has strongly exhorted all good, law-abiding, “In God We Trust” citizens,
“If you see something, say something!”
Therefore, with all the scientifically observable signs in the heavens occurring recently (see Luke 21:25-28; Joel 3:13-17; Acts 2:16-21), duty calls to responsibly issue the next Extremely High Red Alert Window (NOT an absolute prediction, but rather, a high threat alert perhaps comparable to that which DHS has periodically issued since 9-11) for the occurrence of an unprecedented “apocalyptic” technologically-triggered (the fruit of man’s collective evil unfortunately coming back upon our heads) U.S. West Coast mega earthquake and tsunami (aka “the Big One”) or a series of such events triggering a stock market crash, economic collapse (“the cities of the nations fell”) and World War 3 ultimately focusing upon the Middle East (i.e., Israel and the Battle of Armageddon) in fulfillment of the biblical prophecies in Revelation 16 & 18 and elsewhere in the scriptures.
These prophesied events also seem to be foreshadowed in the lyrics of the song “American Pie” ….
Super Bowl 50, Sunday, February 7, 2016 is a current focal point of spiritual and down-to-earth concern (“there we were all in one place”) with the nationally televised big game (“a generation lost in [cyber] space”) taking place at Levi’s Stadium (“drove my Chevy to the Levee”)….
It’s not a question of IF, but rather a question of WHEN. Come what may, when the Big One prophesied in the book of Revelation is triggered, sooner OR later, the whole U.S. West Coast (from Seattle to San Francisco to Los Angeles and beyond) could be the chosen candidate for massive devastation.
The featured photo at the top of this page was captured last year while viewing Levi’s Stadium Coming Events page. The OMINOUS thing that really stands out in this image is the fact that the man with the name LOTT visible on the back of his shirt is the only one who appears to be, essentially, FLEEING from the cheering throngs as similarly depicted in the biblical account of Lot fleeing from the midst of the idol worshippers of Sodom and Gomorrah ….
But, as He has been mercifully declaring to all mankind since time immemorial:
…. As I live, saith the Lord God,
I have NO pleasure
in the death of the wicked;
BUT that the wicked TURN from his way and LIVE:
turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways;
FOR WHY WILL YE DIE ? …
In closing, at this point, the aforementioned considerations strongly warrant a “NO-GO-DADDY” ALERT FOR SUPER BOWL 2016 as possibly foreshadowed in the 2002 movie,
… The Sum of All Fears …
Concerning the greater issues at hand, each and every one of us must now decide:
13 Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe:
Come, get you down; for the press is full, the vats overflow; for their wickedness is great.
14 Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision:
for the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision.
15 The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shining.16 The Lord also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem;
and the heavens and the earth shall shake:
but the Lord will be the hope of his people,
and the strength of the children of Israel.
17 So shall ye know that I am the Lord your God dwelling in Zion, my holy mountain: then shall Jerusalem be holy, and there shall no strangers pass through her any more.

Message In A Bottle: American Pie and a Sign in the Sky
… In grateful response to an article read on nabiy4america.wordpress.com on 5/29/13, and, in further addressing the prophetic message of the song “American Pie”…
With the acknowledgment that it has not yet been firmly established exactly who among us all (Isaiah 33:14-17) is a truly authentic Follower of Christ and a currently instated spiritual member of the True Church * – I will attempt to share as expediently as possible my recent observations concerning a notable heavenly sign (Luke 21:25) manifesting in the skies during this past Memorial Day Weekend 2013. And, in this regard, none of us earthly folk are omniscient and omnipresent with eyes and ears everywhere. For, as 1Corinthians 13:9 declares, “we know in part and we prophesy in part.”
Accordingly, the insights shared concerning “American Pie” and corresponding vital areas of spiritual focus on nabiy4america at wordpress.com are much appreciated.
* KEY NOTE: I am all-too-aware, burdened and broken with godly fear and trepidation regarding the inescapable truth that such a crucial examination of ongoing spiritual authenticity and the hallmark seal of Holy Spirit empowerment upon which it rests necessarily includes myself, too:
See: Luke 21:34-36; 2Co 13:5; 1Cor 9:27; Mt 5:18-20; 7:15,16,21,24; Mt 25:1-13; Phil 2:12; Cor 5:6-13; 2Th 3:5-6; 1Ti 6:1-6; 2Ti 3:5; 1Jn 3:10; Re 14:12; 1Jn 2:3-5; 3:10; 5:2-5; 2John 5,6,9-11; Re 18:1-5 ….
For, since my personal early “awakening” in 1995 (Eph 5:13-17; Mk 8:18, 22-25; Mt 25:6-7; Psalm 119:59-63, 105,113-120; 125-128; Revelation 18:1-6; Re 14:12), I have encountered a number of very impressive spiritual imposters attempting to function as True Believers who are in positions of prominent public media (both secular and spiritual) influence – being “angelic messengers” of sorts appointed to collect information and gather or “reap” souls during the Final Harvest at the end of this age (Mt 13:30, 37-43; Re 14:6-20). Accordingly, I must now continue to endeavor to be ever-vigilant and simultaneously confident that, in spite of all this, for God’s True People, ultimate victory in the final hour of this age shall be …
…”NOT by might and not by power, BUT by my Spirit, saith the Lord”…
So, to attempt to put the subject at hand into a “message in a bottle,” three of the bright planets –Jupiter, Mercury and Venus– aligned shortly after sunset over Memorial Day Weekend in a relatively more rare conjunction forming an equilateral triangle between the horns of the constellation of Taurus just as these illuminated heavenly markers were about to set below the western horizon. With the tightest conjunction forming on Sunday, May 26, 2013, this was the most notable planetary alignment and conjunction to occur until 2021.
As always, there is more than one layer of spiritual interpretation to a heavenly sign. But, I will presently share that which most clearly stands out to me regarding the prophetic lyrics from “American Pie:”
“And the three men [persons] I admire the most, the Father, Son and the Holy Ghost, took the last train for the coast, the day [in the hour of present human history that] the music died.”
In the long run or bigger picture, this indeed represents A Great Falling Away from the Spirit of Truth within the Babylon Church System, at large — in America and world-wide in recent decades (2Thess 2:3). In the shorter run, it represents the more pronounced end of the age exodus of the Truth and True Followers of Christ from the corrupted Babylon Church System with the commencement of the Final Harvest of Revelation (“Come Out of Her, My People!” Re 18:4) –which I have previously asserted to have commenced on Passover, 1997– culminating with the very imminent final removal of God’s True People from Babylon America and the world through “rapture” and/or apocalyptic martyrdom (Re 14:13) likely initiated at the “midway” point or “half-time” (see “American Pie” lyrics) of the Tribulation.
A HEAVENLY SIGN appearing in the twilight sky on Memorial Day Weekend 2013 (Re 16:19; 18:5) reflects these events, especially the soon-approaching final removal of the True Church from the Babylon Church and World System. For, just after sunset on May 26, coinciding with “Trinity Sunday,” Jupiter, Mercury and Venus formed an equilateral triangle (an early Church symbol of THE HOLY TRINITY) positioned BETWEEN THE HORNS of the constellation of Taurus above the western horizon, RESEMBLING TRAIN TRACKS HEADING “INTO THE WEST” OR “FOR THE COAST”….
Now perhaps see the official YouTube music video by Yulia, “Into the West,” depicting travelers heading somewhere into the west on a train who have now “come to journey’s end,” featuring a cut-off image at 2:53 on the time display of the conjunction of two bright planets forming what could be the left-hand side of an equilateral triangle as it would have been seen in twilight on the western horizon (“night is falling”), complete with multiple “red flags” flying on the top of “official buildings” coupled with images of the full moon.
In a prophetic parallel, we have the full moon on May 24-25, the start of Memorial Day Weekend 2013, coupled with a notable triangular planetary conjunction between the “horns” or “rails”* of Taurus.
* And at this juncture, perhaps we should note the following dictionary definitions:
horn: as in, “on the horns of a dilemma,” regarding “being faced with two equally undesirable circumstances” [as in, “should I stay or should I go?”].
horn: an ear trumpet, or, a device for projecting soundwaves.
bullhorn: as in, “bull’s horns:” a directional high-powered loudspeaker.
rails: a structure made of rails (support bars) forming a barrier or guard; to supply or enclose with rails.
Revelation 14:13,15: And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto to me, Write, Blessed are the dead [who pick up their cross daily by denying themselves and follow Him] which [who continue to] die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may REST from their labours, and their works do follow them …. And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come … for the harvest of the earth is ripe.
Micah 2:10-13: ARISE YE AND DEPART; for THIS is NOT your REST: because it is polluted, it shall destroy you, even with a sore destruction.
If a man walking in the spirit and falsehood do lie, saying, I will prophesy unto thee of wine and of strong drink; he shall even be the prophet of this people. I will surely assemble, O Jacob, all of thee: I will surely gather the remnant of [physical and spiritual] Israel; I will put them together as the sheep of Bozrah, as the flock in the midst of their fold: they shall make great noise by reason of the multitude of men.
The breaker [deliverer] is come up before them: they have broke up, have passed through the gate, and are gone OUT by it: and their king shall pass before them and the lord [represented by Jupiter and Mercury] on the head of them [the human temples of the Holy Ghost, rep. by Venus].
With Jupiter representing the Father God, Mercury representing the Son as God’s Messenger (Mal 3:1; John 5:36) and Venus representing the Holy Spirit— we have a sign forewarning of the imminent full, final and “acute” fulfillment of the aforementioned prophetic line from “American Pie” and these inexhaustive biblical prophecies: Revelation 14:13-15; Re 18:1-4,14,23; 2Th 2:6-8, Mt 13:30; Mt 25:6; Micah 2:10-13.
It is my present understanding that this final “acute” event that we have now been further forewarned of is highly imminent and very likely to occur in the late summer/early fall (harvest) of 2013 or 2014, being especially more likely around the time of “Labor Day” through the Jewish holidays of Rosh Hashana, Yom Kippur and Sukkot. IF occurring during the late summer/fall harvest season of 2014, this monumental apocalyptic sequence of events will be taking place exactly 7 + 7 + 3.5 years after the commencement of the spiritual Final Harvest of the Babylon Church System at Passover 1997 in which True Believers were awakened and began to hear the apocalyptic “Midnight Call” of the Holy Spirit to “exodus” or “come out” from the corrupted and fallen away (“fallen! fallen!”) Babylon Church and World System “to meet Him.”
Furthermore, the Memorial Day Weekend 2013 Sign as seen from American soil also dually forms the image of a powerful great beast (Taurus) rising up out of the Pacific Ocean “at sunset” while “pushing the Trinity forward,” representing and embodied by the True Church, between his horns. And, the peak of final fulfillment of the corporate removal of the remnant of God’s people from the Babylon Church System and Greater Babylon World System will likely be connected with an unprecedented catastrophic man-antichrist-made, technologically-triggered west coast undersea quake and tsunami (Re 16:17-20; Joel 3:13-16) further empowering the Beast, or antichrist forces, as if “rising up out of the sea” (Re: 13:1). This quake and tsunami will very likely devastate Los Angeles (changing the local geography: Re 16:19-20) and subsequently set the CITY ON FIRE (Re 18:8) –with Hollywood being the epitome and iconic symbol of BABYLON AMERICA and the Apostate Church System– precipitating national and global economic collapse of the greater Babylon World System (Re 16:19: “and the cities of the nations fell”), apocalyptic chaos, TRUE AND FALSE RELIGIOUS REVIVALS (Joel 3:13-14) and the peak of the Great Tribulation of Revelation in keeping with the following lyrics from “American Pie:”
“HELTER SKELTER, in a summer swelter …. now the HALFTIME air was [still] sweet perfume while the sergeants played a marching tune. We all got up to dance, oh, but we never got the chance …. as the flames climbed high into the night to light the sacrificial rite, I saw Satan laughing with delight the day the music died [with the now sadly devastated iconic city of Babylon, the recording capitol of America and, subsequently, the world shamefully burning] …. And in the streets, the children screamed, the lovers cried and the poets dreamed, but not a word was spoken, the church bells all were broken [the warning cries inspired through the Holy Trinity are now being removed and caused to cease] …. the players tried to take the field [reflecting public chaos, rioting and looting], the marching band refused to yield [representing police and military force, martial law]. Do you recall what was REVEALED [will you recognize, either before, or after the fact, the final fulfillment of the prophecies of REVELATION hand-written in “the book of love,” and will “you have faith in God above”] the day the music died?”
Joel 3:13-16: Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come get you down; for the press is full, the vats overflow; for their wickedness is great. Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision. The sun and the moon shall be darkened [i.e.,notable spiritually symbolic eclipses, such as the series of Jewish tetrads and a number of other highly notable and spiritually symbolic heavenly events occurring in recent years] and the stars shall withdraw their shining [fulfilled in spring 2000 when the five bright planets became “invisible” when they closely aligned around the sun and were lost in its glare]. The Lord shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens [spiritual powers] and the earth shall shake: but the Lord will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel.
In closing, briefly addressing THE KEY subject of “true and false religious revivals” –in this age of a Great Falling Away From the Whole Truth, half-gospels and the plethora of false prophets now subsequently arising in the spiritual void thus created– I find it not only helpful but absolutely essential to clearly define true and false faith and, by extension, the “True and False Church” by these foundational full gospel truths:
For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, AND shall teach men so, he shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do AND teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the [so-called] righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven. (Sermon on the Mount: Matthew 5:18-20)
In THIS the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth NOT righteousness [by endeavoring to keep ALL Christ’s full gospel commands AND teach men so] is NOT of God, NEITHER he that loveth NOT his brother. (1John 3:10)
Here is the patience of the saints:
here are they that KEEP the commandments of God, and the [TRUE] faith of Jesus …
Beware of the false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits …. Not everyone that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will [keeps the commands] of my Father which is in heaven ….Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings [commands] of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man that built his house upon a rock . . . . (Mt 7:15,16,21,24)
