That was an excellent post Jack. One of the things God has been
impressing upon me of late, is that we are to love our enemies. Jesus
taught this, even in the face of persecution, “Bless and do not curse,”
He said. There is one thing that takes the terror out of terrorism and
it is falling in love with God. When we do we love our enemies. There
is nothing they can do to us to bring terror upon us. When we live in
THAT kind of victory it will be them who are terrorized by the love of
God in us.
Jack, I wanted to pass something by you. In 2003 God impressed
upon me that He would reveal the mystery of the 7 thunders of
Revelation. At that time He also said these would be specific
judgments against the nations of Islam. My heart broke and I wept
openly at this. I feel that while the world is going to come under
great tribulation shortly, both the Jewish people and the people of
Islam are going to be singled out for special plagues. This is not
because God has something against them, but to drive them back to Him.
Didn’t God say to Abraham, “I will bless them that bless thee, and
curse them that curse thee”? Oddly we seem to limit this to Israel.
Could it be that God is also including the children of Ishmael, also a
son of Abraham, in this promise? Recently I began working on an
endtime suspense novel entitled THE SEVEN TEARS OF GOD. I would
appreciate any imput you might have as well (and especially) your
Take care and God bless.
“By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love
one to another.” (Joh 13:35)
I agree that the DAY us close at hand. Many of the things told in Revelations have already happened or are happening now. We all need to seek peace and harmony in this world we live in. Thank you. Sincerely, Karen
Dear Friend…the main thing that is going to happen is with the Pope….one of these days there will be a Sunday Law Passed and if you doubt it….just keep watching…If you JOIN IN WITH THE SUNDAY LAW…then you will be going the incorrect way….Saturday is the true SABBATH and it will be what the final fight will be over. Do not close your eyes….study..follow the 10 commandments….before humans altered it…the Catholic Church…and they readily admit to it. The final showdown will NOT be in the MIddle East…it will be in America…
God bless you man of God. Many thanks for your e-mail. Bertha
like your aticle’s.
Can you interpret this vision I had:
A block of people sitting in the Heavens. All were sitting in chairs. One chair was empty-the corner closest to me, in this vision. Then, I saw my self in the chair-slumpinng. When I heard a voice saying to me, sit upright! I sat erectly, and I saw the the last chair filled which was me in it. Why was this showm to me?
Aways nice to hear from you and appreciate your zeal in making these presentations. As you know we agree on some things but disagree about these references in the Bible about future Israel, Jews and Jerusalem being literal, your view and others, and being figurative, my view and others.
At first the teaching of Jesus was very direct and simple such as the Sermon on the Mount . Later He spoke in parables so some would not understand. In the one about the sower, the seed is the word, the field is the world, and the harvest is the end of all things.
The most symbolic book in all the Bible is Revelation. In 18:1-4, we are told that God`s people are in Babylon and are called out as Babylon falls. I wrote to Tim LaHaye about his literal position, and one of his assistants replied that Tim read the material but will stick with his belief that Babylon will be rebuilt on its old site and will become a city as large as New York in 3 1/2 years. Really now ?
In the ancient tongue Babylon means GATE OF GOD. In the Bible, Babel, Hebrew for Babylon, means CONFUSION . Babylon is a confused gate of God, relating to the time the people languages were confused. But before that, they were CONFUSED, thinking that they could get to heaven by building this tower which would reach there. A CONFUSE WAY TO HEAVEN.
To give a literal application to prophecy concerning Babylon is missing the mark by a country mile .
While Abraham and his descendants were promised the literal land in Palestine and Jerusalem, he looked for the New Jeruaslem that comes down from God out of heaven. Hebrews 11 .
Good luck and God bless .
Thank you for sending us these letters. They make us look up and remind us of the soon return of our Lord Jesus Christ!

I would have to take issue with the statement that Israel and America can defeat Syria and/or Iran militarily. Israel might be able to defend herself via military, as they are alledged to have some rather “out-of-this-world” defense mechanisms that have shown up rather supernaturally in the past, but also are said by some to have extremely technological defense/offense capabilities that no other nation on earth posesses.
America, on the other hand, has poked its finger in the eye of God, I believe, by dabbling in the internal affairs of Israel’s politics, blackmailing their leaders into doing things America’s way, etc., etc., and is ripe for judgement for doing so. America’s military and entire infrastructure, are extremely susceptible to EMP (electro-magnetic pulse) attack, which is what is given off in a nuclear detonation. An EMP blast from a nuke sends out a surge of electricity that is more powerful than a lightning strike. It contains more energy than the Hoover dam generates in 24 hours and completely destroys anything electronic in its path. Can’t happen to America you might say? Let’s consider a few things:
1. Saddam in Iraq in 1991 had SCUD missles mounted on mobile launchers on trucks; they were notoriously hard to find. They are relatively cheap; Iran most likely possesses some or has access to them. Syria may have also.
2. In the ’90’s most of Russia’s military assets were for sale on the black market, including nuclear submarines, with or without the missles! (There was a PBS show on about this subject concerning a South American drug lord looking for better ways to smuggle drugs to North America, via purchased Russian nuclear subs. He was caught, and the deal never went through, but he was asked by the seller if he wanted them with or without missles.) With nuclear weapons for sale some 10-15 years or so ago, if I had to bet on whether Iran had nukes or not, I would bet they ALREADY HAVE THEM! They have a shelf life of about 7 years and need to be reprocessed, but their good Russian buddies or someone else would be sure to help them out if they did not already have the technology themselves. Whether they did then or not, they certainly do now!
3. Al-Qaeda is known to own at least 80 ocean-going freighters; again, I think it would be a safe bet to believe that the nation of Iran owns several also. O.K., let’s put this all together: Iran, Syria, Al-Qaeda; all buddies in the common effort against U.S. DRIVE SCUDS or other missle type mounted on trucks into hold of ship, or several ships, (owned/operated by whoever, we don’t care!) on dark cloudy night when satellites can’t see, arm them, if they aren’t already, with nuclear warheads. If possible, while importing other goods to America, get to shore and launch as many scuds as possible into heartland of America. If not possible, launch from international waters. Detonate before American intercept missles get there, if they do at all, at as high an altitude as possible. EMP blast will follow the Earth’s atmosphere down and destroy EVERY electronic device in its path. No more electical grid, zero communications, most vehicles will not operate, as they all operate via computer! Our techno-driven military will be at a standstill, as will be all of America for YEARS, as it will take that long to recover, if we ever fully recover!
If one does not think this is being planned, consider that in spring/summer ’05, Iran was conducting military exercises detonating their new Shihab-3 ballistic missle (with several thousand km range) at high altitude. Their military called the experiments a SUCCESS, our intelligence organizations at the time called them a failure. (who’s the stupid one?!?!) This missle is far more advanced than the lowly SCUD, and is the one they were practicing with.
I would tend more toward the opinion/belief, based on the above facts, that America is about to be taken out of the game on a rather permanent note, and I am sad to say that WE DESERVE IT, as we now spread many times more filth of every kind in every media available than we ever did the Good News of our Living, Redeeming, Saving, JESUS CHRIST, Who purchased mankind at a horrible price, and for the most part seems to be spit on still for it!
Does this theory hold water??
Greetings Jack, good to hear from you – I have mailed your note and lastest article to everyone and pray they continue to hold fast to the Rock of our Salvation and discern the times we are living in. Soon we shall be with Him forever !!
In His Love, Trish.
DANIEL 9:27 SPEAKS OF THE COVENANT BETWEEN GOD AND MAN, AND OF THE 3 1/2-YEAR EARTHLY MINISTRY OF JESUS CHRIST, FOLLOWED UP AFTER HIS DEATH AND RESURRECTION BY ANOTHER 3 1/2 YEARS OF THE APOSTLES’ EXCLUSIVELY TAKING THE GOSPEL TO THE JEWS, TO CARRY OUT HIS END OF THE DEAL, NOT OF SOME FUTURE ANTICHRIST!!!!!
Very well said. Either way – we are very close – right at the door step. A true Godfearing believer who is faithful to our Lord Christ Jesus will understand these things and fear not the things which are soon to come. Everything else, whether it be conspiracy therories, mainstream media or Hollywood, is just a form of entertainment and speculation designed to feed the appetites of news junkies and spectators who have not the courage themselves to lift up their hand and purpose themselves to be useful in these trying times. Like the early games in Greece and Rome, while Christian men who were numbered among real criminals were sentenced to the arena to fight against wild beasts, a whole coliseum of spectators looked on for entertainment to satisy their appetites for blood, guts and gore.
Have you ever felt like you were one in the arena waiting to see which beast would be unleashed on you? Have no fear for God is with you.
With all sincerity and love for the truth and our scattered brethren abroad,
THOUGH ALL OF THIS IS WILL CAUSE GREAT PROBLEMS, WE DO NOT KNOW WHAT WILL TRIGGER JESUS TO RETURN. WILL HE FIND FAITH ON EARTH WHEN HE COMES?
I THINK MANY WILL SEE THE SIGNS OF THE TIMES, AND BURY THEIR HEADS IN THE SAND. MAYBE SOME WILL RISE UP AND TRY PREACHING THE GOSPEL. I KNOW, MANY CHURCHES, THAT HAVE NO IDEA, IF THERE IS A GOD, OR NOT, REGARDLESS OF WHAT THEY SAY OR DO.
THOUGH I KNOW DOCTRINE IN OF ITSELF, WILL NOT SAVE ANYONE, REGARDLESS OF HOW GOOD IT IS, OR HOW BAD IT IS, FOR ONLY A RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS, BASED UPON CERTAIN NECESSITIES THAT GOD HAS TOLD US, TO ACCOMPLISH.
MAY YOUR ASTUTE STUDY OF MODERN TIMES CONTINUE TO WARN US, OF THE IMPENDING DANGER, THAT CERTAINLY MAKE THINGS TOUGHER FOR CHRISTIANS MISSIONARIES. THE MUSLIMS, WILL RISE UP AGAINST MORE AND MORE CHRISTIANS, DUE, THE LACK OF COURAGE TO STAND UP AGAINST THE WILES OF THE MUSLIM FINACTICISM. IT WONT BE LONG BEFORE IT STARTS HERE IN AMERICA. I HAVE SAID, THAT THE MUSLIM, IN 30 YEARS TIME, NOW, LESS THEN THAT, WILL ASK FOR A SEPERATE STATE HERE IN AMERICA.
ANYWAY, THE MUSLIMS, WILL KILL MORE AND MORE PEOPLE AS TIME GOES BY, AND THE WAR IN IRAQ, WILL BE A TOTAL WASTE, THOUGH KILLING SADAM HUSIEN, AND HIS GOVERNMENT, ALONE, WOULD HAVE BEEN ENOUGH. THOUGH, THAT TOO DOES NOT MAKE IT RIGHT BEFORE GOD. THE IRAQ’ PEOPLE NEEDED TO MAKE MORE STANDS NOW, THEN THEY HAVE DONE, TO GET RID OF SO MANY MALCONTENTS, THE ONLY WAY POSSIBLE, I SEE IS TO HAVE THEM KILLED OFF. WHO TO KILL IS HARD TO TELL THOUGH.
NO MATTER, THE WORLD IS NOT SAFER NOW, THEN BEFORE THE WAR, AND THE WORLD WIDE FEAR AND CONFUSION, WILL PREVAIL, UNLESS, JESUS COMES, OR CHRISTIANS START PREACHING THE TRUTH.
THEN AGAIN ONCE WE DO, WE WILL BE KILLED FOR IT. CHURCHES WILL RISE UP AGAINST PEOPLE PREACHING THE TRUTH, TOO. BILLY GRAHAM IS NOT WORTH ATTACKING, FOR MANY KNOW HIS PREACHING HAS BEEN WATER LIKE SINCE HE STARTED SO VERY LONG AGO.
ANYWAY, LORD BLESS,
THANKS FOR YOUR EMAILS,
I HOPE TO GO BACK TO MY BIBLE STUDIES, SOON, I GOT ONE DONE, AND A LITTLE ON THE SECOND ONE.
Hey Jack, Thanks for the info, Please sign me up for your emails, your web pages are great. Good Work. I went there and did not see where to sign up. Blessing, Kelly
you seem to be well up on pretty much all the stuff
iam recently gathering an interest for, out of
interest please tell me what you know/make of this
thanks for the e-mail you sent back i didnt expect to
get a replie from my origanal replie as i was very
drunk at the time and wasnt sure what you’d make of it
as i sobered up.
Jack, I am in complete agreement with you. Everything that has been prophesied has come or is coming to pass. The only ones who can’t see this are those who refuse to see. Keep up the good work! Don’t get discouraged. Surely, if we pray hard enough, even the most closed-minded and stone-hearted will hear! Thank you so very much for your persistence. Jackie (BTW: Did you see where Mastercard has now made it SO EASY to carry just a card – no cash – for everyone? Only a step or two removed from conveniently having a number tatooed under the skin of your arm or your forehead so that you can be scanned for purchases….Is the mark of the beast far behind???)
Dear Jack, I am very concerned, the Lord put a call on my life to become a preacher and I felt it was with a view to Wesleyan-Arminism, when I shared my views with my current pastor who is Calvinist I mentioned salvation and the eternal security doctrine and he said if you persistently sin without repenting you would die prematurely but you would still go to heaven as one escaping through flames, I am alarmed that such teaching. Can lead people to do what they want, I am having a difficult time sitting in church which is Pentecostal while hearing these sort of teachings, I start bible college in September to train in theology at a Wesleyan college, I do not know whether to wait or find another church now, your friend in the Lord, Paul.
I wanted to take a moment to say thank you. Your interview with Zeph Daniel was riveting and a breath of fresh air. I love Brother Zeph but have never agreed with the ‘rapture is a lie theory’. You handled the ugliness thrown at you with grace and poise that comes from leaning on Jesus and The Holy Spirit.
I’m so sorry about the tone of the caller in the last few moments. It seems those that disagree with the reality of ‘the great catching away’ can’t be civil. I was ready with a couple of scriptures to answer his claims but alas also knew the time was not there for me to call in. Anyway, there are those of us who know what JESUS said in Matthew 24 and Revelation, HE meant. I’ve studied eschatology for almost 40 years and understand the different viewpoints, I have yet to be convinced Jesus didn’t mean JUST what HE said.
I wanted you to be encouraged that many of us listening could discern what was going on. We must be patient with all men for we know not what path the Lord might have for them. Some of us HE was quite clear might be found worthy of not being forced to live through the time of ‘judgements to fall upon the earth because of their rejection of HIM’. We will see this IF we cling to faith in Him and His Word regardless of what others say. I refer to the seven churches of Rev. 3. There are a few other little gems the Lord has shown me personally but I also know, the Lord has purpose in all things and we must learn to lean on His Wisdom and not our own.
Please be encouraged that what you spoke was beautifully presented and greatly anointed. Perhaps it was not received because some are just not ready to receive it? Some of us were greatly blessed and hope you will return to speak to those of us who understand.
You did the right thing by not arguing. The caller hasn’t read the book of James I guess. Anyway, bless you for your obedience because I know some people it blessed and I was one of them!
Father keep you in His Loving Embrace and protect you! ~Amen~
Thank you Jack,
The email is appreciated, I look forward for your
articles, and information regarding what the Lord has
planned and you have confirmed the happenings as prep
for the war that’s coming in and on America. I did
print out the last article you wrote and I know the
Holy Spirit shows men that are in abiding in his word.
Praise the Lord! Thank you Jesus.
I have to tell you that I am a thuroughly secular person. I have no interest in prophecy etc.so would not be interested in any such analysis. I will though look through your site. Thanks for your comments on my article. Ted
Hello Mr. Hook,
I appreciate you sending me this e-mail. Which website did you see my information on? I have a good idea, but i’m not sure. I browsed through your website. I will have to wait for a better opportunity to fully read it. I am impressed by your works, although i am not a very religious person. Its hard for me to believe given certain circumtances. I wanted to let you know, i did recieve your e-mail, and i will be reading your website soon. One question…you mentioned during your time in the army, you came to understand why nations make war. So, my question to you is: Why are we in this war now? Why were we in Vietman? Will the human race ever learn and grow? Maybe i don’t make much sense…all i know is what i feel in my heart.
Thank you very much!
You see “Jack” we, as did every Vietnam Vet, “walked with the Angels, all 47 Marine’s had there Angel, we all need some thing or some one to believe in, it helps you walk the walk in the jungle or your walks true life. You and all like you are what I call JESUE LOVER’S and if that’s what you like then that’s what you must DO? leave me out of it. John.
I have my GOD he has been with me thru HELL and will be with me at the time I check out.
Have a great life without me.
Jack, you favour the wrong side, for God has no sides,
and no country, especially Israel and America, for they
will be no more. Thank the Lord. David
I really appreciate your heart for lost souls brother Hook. I did visit your web site and was very blessed. I have quite a dramatic amazing testimony of God’s grace myself which I am in the process of writing and when I get done I will send it to you. Over and over God has told me I must write this Testimony down and I am having a very difficult time obeying him and getting it done. This is because I think “I am nobody” why should my testimony matter?” “Am I just exalting myself Lord?” But then I read yours and thought Wow, that really blessed me. Maybe my testimony would bless someone also. Overcoming huge injustice by the grace of God and being delivered in unconventional ways ………that is included in my story which I will send to you, if you like, when it is completed. God bless you I love your website.
I am grateful to have a new friend I am pretty isolated right now. For such a long time it was not that way. I went to a church for 13 years where I had many praying friends and now I feel sort of like Abraham (alone)
I read the article called something like “they wouldn’t receive the truth” I found that in your articles, the one’s I have had time to read are filled with grace and truth. This is a rare thing. Usually truth tellers have alot of legalism in their messages and grace preachers have hardly any conviction. You are a rare gem indeed. I’m sure you saw something I wrote on a Veteran site as I am a veteran of the Air Force. This was during non-war time and yes I saw more carnality there than I have ever witnessed in my life time. the scripture “work while it is day for the night comes” definatley applies to the military which I’m sure is one of satan’s first targets for complete and total infiltration by the anti-christ spirit. Anyway I could not find the article you suggested about Compassion. Please send that to me? I will send you my testimony upon completion It’s pretty dramatic in many ways. Thanks for your encouragement.
Just received your e-mail on your beliefs,well we walk two different trails as I believe in many “GODS”or higher powers.There are to many conflicting BIBLES and different religions and contradiction for me to put all my FAITH in one supposed supreme being I FALL back on my native american ansesters and their beliefs and way of living for
today as we cannot change the future.It is true that modern man will eventually destroy the EARTH and all who are left.But no one really knows what comes after death because no one has ever came back to tell about it,Have A “GREAT” day
MAN OF GOD,
I SALUTE YOUR COURAGE AT A TIME LIKE THIS TO STICK
TO THE UNDILUTED TRUTH.KEEP THE FLAG OF RIGHTEOUSNESS
FLYING. THE FALLING MAN IS DOING HIS BEST TO CREATE HEAVEN
ON THE EARTH BUT OF HIS DELUSION , HE FAILS TO REALIZE
THAT THERE IS NO HEAVEN WITHOUT JESUS THE CROWNED
PRINCE PEACE, THE LORD GOD OF ETERNITY WHO
DISSAPPOINTED THE BUILDERS OF THE TOWER
OF BABEL. IS THE GOD ON THE THRONE, NO MOCKER OF GOD WILl
ESCAPE HIS WRATH YOURS IN CHRIST
I fought a war to give you the right to pedal your beliefs but I’m not buying them.
I apologize for it taking me so long to get to your web site but it’s been a very hectic week here. My work is all outside with the horses, and some of my days are very long, so unfortunately I don’t get a lot of online time. My little one comes first always 🙂
You’re doing a great work here! I’m not sure if I told you but I don’t believe in war. I never have.. and I’ve never believed everything that our government told us. But the reason for my work with POW – MIA is that I want to honor them for what they done and let their families/friends know that someone cares about their loved one and will remember them.
The work you’re doing is for the living and is very important. I wish you much success with that and will be praying to that affect. The Creator will lead you as you let Him, in that I have no doubts, as he has always led me.
I will forward your web site to some friends that I know will be interested in seeing what you’re doing. We can always use all the support there is out there.
Peace & Blessings always,
Hi Jack this may seem like a trivial matter but I value your opinion. My
daughter just turned 18 and wants to get a tattoo of a little sea turtle on
her ankle. Of course it dos not stop there… then maybe on her shoulder.
I do not want her to do that. She goes to a youth group at the Baptist
Church and some of the youth leaders have tattoos and the youth think it is
cool. What is your opinion? Thank you.
Thank you for your email. And I am very interested in current world events and how they relate to Bible Prophecy. I’ll go to your website. Tony
Thanks so much for sharing with me your passion to minister to veterans. Both my grandfathers are veterans as was my great-grandfather. I know from their experience (none of them are Christians) war was extremely hard on them and left a lot of emotional scars that they blame God for. So I’m sure what you are doing is very helpful to these types of people.
Keep up the great work. Have a wonderful day!
