Luke 21:20: When you see Jerusalem being surrounded by armies, you know that its desolation is near…` (Vs22) for these are the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.  …there shall be great distress in the land, and wrath upon this people.  They shall fall by the edge of the sword and shall be led away captive into all nations; and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.


Jesus is speaking of future events, including the destruction of Jerusalem (70 A.D.)  and His return. He says that “Jerusalem will be trampled underfoot by the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled(ESV). A similar phrase is found in Romans 11:25 which says, “A partial hardening has come upon Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in.”


This partial hardening of heart for Israel doesn’t preclude individual Jews from being saved, but it prevents the nation from accepting Christ as Messiah until he fulfills his program of using the Gentiles to spread the gospel across the whole earth.


Ro. 11: 26-27: All Israel shall be saved; as it is written, “there shall come out of Sion the deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob; for this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.”


Jesus, Messiah and Deliverer,  came to this world in the age of Rome.  The past 2023 years is the age of the Gospel Church (the establishing of the Kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven), the period in which all humankind can be delivered by the cross of Jesus Christ.  Jesus’ Kingdom is the stone cut out of the mountain without hands and continues to break in pieces all of the other kingdoms.

Daniel 2:44-45: And in the days of these kings shall the God of Heaven set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed; and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever.


Matthew 20:25:  Jesus called unto him, and said, you know that the princes of the Gentiles exercise dominion over them, and they that are great exercise authority upon them (K.J.V.).


As the war in the Middle East is being fought on the ground, it is also being fought in Heaven. 


Behind every earthly ruler there is a spiritual power either for good or evil with supernatural power.


Gabriel helped Michael overthrow the prince of Babylon under Nebuchadnezzar and establish Persia under King Cyrus.  Michael overthrew the Prince of Persia.   


Different good and bad angels have under their control certain responsibilities in certain kingdoms.   Daniel carried a governmental anointing.  Throughout his life, the visions concerning the rise and fall of kings and nations were given to him.


 The five kingdoms represented by the metallic man in Daniel 2 succeeded each other when their time came to fulfill God’s plan pertaining to Israel and the Kingdom of His Son on earth as it is in Heaven.   


Most scholars conclude the “times of the Gentiles” is from the time of Nebuchadnezzar 585 B.C. until the present time.


1.     Babylon – Nebuchadnezzar - prince of Babylon.

2.     Medes and Persia – Cyrus - prince of Persia

3.     Greece – Alexander the Great – prince of Grecia

4.     Roman Empire – Caesar

5.     Revised Roman Empire – antichrist.


Two empires oppressed Israel before Babylon.


1.     Egypt – Prince of Egypt – Pharaohs

2.     Assyria. – Prince of Assyria  


 Five empires are described in the vision of the metallic man of Daniel 2.     


 I agree with this interpretation.  However, Jesus was prophesying of future events.  Jesus came to earth in the age of Rome.

Since the fall of the Roman Empire (AD 455, 476), nine (9) world empires have oppressed the Jews (counting Hitler) in the times of the Gentiles.  Perhaps these are the ten kingdoms known as the Revised Roman Empire dealt with in Daniel 7 and Rev. 17: 12-17.  If so, the antichrist would be the tenth kingdom.   


1.     Byzantine Empire – grew out of the East roman Empire.

2.     Moslem Empire – originated with the Arabs. – Prince of Assyria

3.     Seljuk Turks

4.     Christian Crusaders

5.     Marmadukes of Egypt

6.     Ottoman Turks

7.     Nazis

8.     British and Arab Guerilla fighters

9.     Arabs (Islam)


God has worked and is still working among nations to bring about His eternal purpose of redemption that we may eternally live in the Presence of His Glory.  Satan and his agents seek to stop God’s Kingdom on earth.  We decide which one we will serve and assist.  There are three votes.  The devil votes against us, Jesus votes for us, whichever way we vote makes the difference. 


Daniel 2: 44-45:  In the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed; and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever.  Forasmuch as you saw that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it broke in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold, the great God has made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter; and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.


The fight will continue with the kingdom of Satan.  We should pray unceasingly to come along-side God’s angels in this spiritual war.


We are all generals engaged in spiritual war, and Michael, the captain of God’s host, stands by our side.



(Transcribed from Time Sheets’ message 10/18/23)


Great shaking now has come. –We are now in a fierce war season.


The Lord spoke, “I will now deal with the oppressors of my people.  I will move swiftly with jealous aggression.  I have heard their cries and will break the hold of the task master’s rule over them.  Though they bow their necks in stubborn resistance, I will lead them with nose rings to their place of destruction.  Like oxen of destruction, I will pull them to stalls of disgrace.  The task master’s whip will no longer be heard by my sons and daughters.  Breakthrough is coming.  They will not glean empty fields.  They will own the fields.   Oppressors’ authority will be shattered.  My angels will scatter their defiance. 


Michael and his chariots of fire have received their orders.  Michael is head of the special forces’ unit who are active in the war in Israel.   Michael is the angelic prince of Israel.  


Gabriel has communicated strategies to angel armies.  Breakthrough angels are being activated.


 Ecclesia contend in faith as I harden the hearts of your enemies.  Move forward as my pioneers.  Embrace and move into the reset I have planned.  Decree your faith and activate my kingdom power angel armies and they will assist you in the supernatural reset.


I am now releasing mighty ones to break up entrenched evil.  My unshakeable kingdom will arise in waves of power and strategy as my angels run with you.   They will strike the ‘forever loser’s’ protection of diabolical root systems in America’s capitol and state capitols. Michael, my war prince, has released war angels  in sufficient numbers to unlock this nation and to break barrier walls.


Companies of special forces angels, the angels of fire, have penetrated the realms of iniquity to ambush as the Ecclesia makes their commands in my name.  Cover-ups will be uncovered.  Giants taunting in opposition will fall.  Strongholds of darkness will be destroyed, and their influence shattered.  My angels are merging with my people to bring the forces of evil in Baal’s kingdom down.  My unshakeable kingdom will rise in waves of power.  Hear the sound of battering rams of my kingdom resounding against wicked strongholds.  The abomination will not stand.  Overwhelming might will bear upon covenant breakers seeking to destroy my purposes.  The advance of my kingdom will become very rapid.  Rapid strikes will come against hindering spirits, spirits of perversion, government tyranny, and cultural systems polluted by demon powers.


The world will now see mobilizing kingdom Ecclesia and Heavens’ angel armies under Lord Sabaoth, Lord of Hosts.  This will suddenly and aggressively be revealed.  This happening now and will be visibly seen. The world will see the fierceness of Hell’s resistance to my kingdom superseded by the fierceness of my wrath against their allegiance to Baal.  My fierce deployment will now emerge.  My intercessors are willing.  They will also deploy on strike missions against Hell’s dominion.   Engage and win this fierce war season with my power.


An agitated demon realm will stir violence in the natural realm, but I will send fresh power from heaven to resource you.  Fresh fire will be seen of my manifest presence which will hover over you in manifest glory.  Behold and know I have now opened a door of heaven.  I have opened the Angel gate over you.  That is the war gate of heaven.  I have opened the door of Angels armies to the king’s Ecclesia.  They will deploy on strike missions, for I will have my harvest.


The angel gate is the door where angels come and go (ascend and descend).  Gen. 28:12 – Jacob saw a ladder to heaven – He said “this is a gate of heaven.” This is where angels ascend and descend.  This ascending is elevating the Ecclesia a higher place of authority.   


Oct. 3 – Vision given to Tim Sheets: He saw multiple divisions of angel armies. Thousands in each division marching out of the gate.   Michael, archangel (most powerful of all the angels) was standing at this gate.  He is a Seraph angel.  His appearance gleamed like reddish gold, the colors of fire. He was 12’ tall, silver, transparent wings, eyes piercing, gold belt, exuded power, exuded peace, confidence and completeness under authority and in authority.


 Standing at the angel gate, Michael would nod, and a division of thousands left the gate, division after division.  It just kept going (millions (myraids) of angels being released from the angel gate).


The angels were identified by their garments. Government angels are dressed in purple.  There were evangelism angels, breakthrough angels, and seraphim angels.  The seraphim have throne room ministries and take their orders and assignments from the Godhead.  They minister to the Godhead and declare the holiness of God.  They are released to war over demon thrones over nations.


Right now, Israel is dealing with demon prince of Persia, Iran. Fierce War is going on.   


Got to take out the demon powers fueling this war.  Our prayers and decrees are to go beyond the natural realm and deal with the demon powers:  unreasonable actions, atrocities that are unthinkable, diabolical nature, other worldly.


 Partner with the angel armies.  ‘I am sending the mighty ones to assist you to tear this down, uproot it.’   


‘The coalition forces of my kingdom are now being called to the battle lines.  The synergizing strength of my allies joined together for my kingdom cause has never been stronger.  My angels, my remnant warrior armies, Holy Spirit, my Father, and all of heaven have allied with me and my kingdom.   Fight with one of us, you fight all of us.  Covenants are established.  Treaties have been signed with my blood.  Alignments have initiated assignments.  The strength of my coalition is filled with overwhelming might.


 No! Hell cannot prevail! My church will prevail! My remnant will prevail! My kingdom has been attacked.  Yes, my remnant has been pressed in great battle but know that a mighty kingdom is allied with you.  The King of Heaven and earth is allied with you.  You will not fight this battle alone.  My kingdom allies are rushing to the battle front.  Engage the enemy’s kingdom.  Partner with heaven.  Run with the angels.  Follow Holy Spirit and enlarge my kingdom on earth.’” (End of transcribed message give by Apostle Tim Sheets).


Daniel 7: 9-14: I, beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool; His throne was like the fiery flame, and His wheels as burning fire.  A fiery stream issued and came forth from before Him; thousand thousands ministered to Him, and ten thousand times then thousand stood before Him; the judgment was set, and the books were opened.  I beheld them because of the voice of the great words which the horn spoke; I beheld even till the beast was slain, and his body destroyed, and given to the burning flame.  As concerning the rest of the beasts, they had their dominion taken away; yet their lives were prolonged for a season and time.  I saw in the night visions and beheld one like the Son of Man came with the clouds of heaven and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought Him near before Him.  And there was given Him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom that all people, nations, and languages, should serve Him; His dominion is an everlasting dominion.
