The Arab Spring, the legacy of Chernobyl, ISIS, the homosexual campaigns for “rights” and much, much more.

It’s either the “biggest collection of unfathomable coincidences in the world, or we might be looking at exacting prophecy being fulfilled within our historical lifetime,” according to Carl Gallups, an author, senior pastor, former law enforcement officer and longtime radio talk show host.

He explains his perspectives fully in “Final Warning: Understanding the Trumpet Days of Revelation,” published by WND Books.

Gallups lays out a logical and Scripture-based approach to interpreting prophecy and then documents what he believes to be strong evidence that this generation may be living in the Bible’s prophesied “trumpet days” of Revelation – the literal end of history.

“I am not dogmatic in saying ‘This is that.’ However, what we are left with, in examining all the information presented in the book, is either the biggest collection of unfathomable coincidences in the world, or we might be looking at exacting prophecy being fulfilled within our historical lifetime. Let’s face it – Israel is back in the land after 2,500 years of biblical prophecy proclaiming it would happen. The nations of Ezekiel 38 are now forming that prophesied coalition for the first time in history. The Arab Spring, the rise of ISIS, the devastating slaughter of Christians in the Middle East, the spread of Islamic terrorism worldwide, the spirit of Sodom and Gomorrah sweeping the nations, the rising up of the nations of China, Russia, and Iran – all of these things point to the convergence of specific biblical prophecies, regardless of what one may wish to believe about the trumpet prophecies of Revelation. I am trying to show the world what many others and I have discovered. People can do with it as they wish. But first, I urge them to get this book and explore its contents. They may have to rethink their eschatological scenarios.”

It’s here – the ‘Final Warning’ … Could we be living in the final ‘Trumpet Days’ of Revelation?

He continued: “I have been pointing out these biblically ‘coded’ words for over 25 years. These are not ‘new revelations’ I have pulled out of my back pocket for the purpose of writing a mere ‘sensationalistic’ book. I have been showing people these things in prophecy conference settings, Bible conferences, revivals, regular pulpit preaching, videos, and blog articles – for decades. I have submitted this information before the world in many different venues for the purpose of critical review and specific peer review. Almost without fail, when people see these things for the first time, and the heavily resourced evidence backing up the findings, they inevitably ask me, ‘When are you going to put these amazing findings in a book?’ So, now I have.”

“Final Warning: Understanding the Trumpet Days of Revelation is being praised by Joel Richardson, New York Times bestselling author of “The Islamic Antichrist” and the director of the hot new documentary “End Times Eyewitness.”

“If you have a passion to study the subject of the end times, then you will love this book! Carl Gallups is an engaging writer who presents a truly unique perspective. Prepare to be challenged!” he said.

The book of Revelation contains a list of seven trumpet “visions” given to the apostle John on the Island of Patmos, most likely in the AD 90s. In “Final Warning,” Gallups explores numerous key words found within the trumpet prophecies and their potential relationships to celebrated historical events.

Bill Martinez of the nationally syndicated radio program “Bill Martinez Live,” says: “‘Final Warning’ is quite revelatory. … Carl Gallups boldly shares not only God’s vision and judgment for all his creation but His plan that is unfolding today.”

Asked to explain the significance of names like Chernobyl, Iran, Ukraine and Russia regarding prophecy, Gallups said: “It is in the news right now that Russia continues to invade and encroach upon Ukraine, putting Ukraine front and center in the news again – for the first time since the unprecedented Chernobyl nuclear disaster. Most prophecy scholars also see several definitive biblical illusions to Russia and Iran playing important end time roles. Now we have Russia and Iran making alliance pacts with each other, and this is happening as Iran is leading the way in inciting violence against Israel. Of course Israel and the United States are in constant tension concerning Iran’s nuclear capabilities and Russia’s assistance with those capabilities. Israel is constantly signaling that it may take preemptive action upon Iran’s nuclear intentions. And all of this is happening as Russia continues to push against Ukraine, inching its reach ever closer to Europe and the Middle East – especially Israel. There is a convergence taking place, right before our eyes, which many prophecy experts see as an exceptional harbinger of the prophetic times in which we are currently living.”

Gallups said trumpet No. 3, in the book of Revelation describes an a particularly “fiery” event that ultimately killed numerous people and polluted a vast water supply. The name given to it is “wormwood.”

“This is an interesting word on several levels,” Gallups explained. “The word literally means, ‘bitter.’ The equivalent word is used seven times in the Old Testament and always speaks of some type of horrific judgment. The word also carries with it the connotation of ‘poisoning’ or ‘polluting’ with the ‘bitterness’ that is associated with it. But what is most striking about the word is that if one were to translate that word into the Ukrainian language – the word for wormwood is Chernobyl! I have the fact of this word connection reliably documented in my book – using United Nations documents, native Ukrainian speakers’ verification, Ukrainian dictionaries and Ukrainian Bible translations.”

Zev Porat, founder and director of Messiah of Israel Ministries in Israel, praised Gallups book: “Once in a great while a book comes out that has the touch of God upon it to such an extent the reader is forever changed. This book, ‘Final Warning’ is a must for everyone who is seeking the truth.”

He said: “And what was the result of the Chernobyl explosion – the world’s worst nuclear disaster? It heavily poisoned the surrounding water supply and soil, as well as throughout the region and beyond. … Some current scientific reports are still estimating the radiation poisoning results of Chernobyl will continue to affect millions around the globe. Of course all of this is documented in the book. And all of these details appear to be specifically foreshadowed in the book of Revelation and the third trumpet prophecy.”

Gallups said that in addition, Chernobyl is “continually in the news today because the containment facility (sarcophagus) constructed around the destroyed nuclear plant, and its highly lethal radioactive contents, is getting old and rickety.”

“And right in the middle of Ukraine attempting to rectify the disastrous situation, with international assistance … Russia attacks!”

Gallups told WND: “My book outlines the key words and their highly potential historical fulfilments. Not only that, I believe I have found incredible, documented evidence that trumpets four and five have also sounded and that the world may actually be in the very beginning stages of trumpet six – which many see as an illusion to a vast World War III scenario centered, of all places, in the Middle East – the immediate focus of today’s world attention.

“‘Final Warning’ has many examples like the Chernobyl example. As stunning as that one is, I think several of the others are even more stunning. As you can tell, I really do believe we may be living in some amazingly prophetic times, perhaps signaling the relatively soon return of the Lord Jesus Christ.”

When asked to answer critics who would question his findings, Gallups said: “I have been continually tracking and researching these events for 25 years. The key words are there. Their definitions and correlations, as I have reliably documented, are undeniable. And, there are many of them – not just the one concerning Chernobyl. If it were just that one, I would probably say ‘Wow, what a coincidence!’ But, there are just too many astounding ‘coincidences’ as people will discover when they read the book and check the resources for themselves.”

Gallups is also the author of the book “The Rabbi Who Found Messiah: The Story of Yitzhak Kaduri and His Prophecies of The Endtime,” which tells the story of one of Israel’s most venerated spiritual leaders, Rabbi Yitzhak Kaduri, who died at the age of 108 in 2006 and left behind a letter with instructions to open it one year after his death.

Rabbi Yitzhak Kaduri claims to have met the Messiah in vision.

Rabbi Yitzhak Kaduri claims to have met the Messiah in vision.

In 2007, two Israeli news publications, Israel Today and News First Class, reported that Kaduri’s cryptic death note revealed the name of the long-awaited Messiah.

A year after the rabbi’s death, the note was reported to have been verified as authentic by some of Kaduri’s closest followers and then placed on Kaduri’s own website.

The purported Kaduri message proclaimed that Messiah’s name was Yehoshua, or Jesus.
