Monte Judah, Kabbalist, False Prophet & False Prophecies

 

Part 2: Monte Judah's False Prophecies

 

 

 

The False Prophecies

 

Monte Judah of Lion and Lamb Ministries taught that we were already in the Tribulation, and that it had started with the signing of the Middle East Peace Accords on September 13, 1993. Thus, the events of the middle of the Tribulation should have happened by March 23, 1997.  It didn't happen.

*He subsequently issued an apology for the false prophecy at that time, which was removed from the internet along with the failed predictions and some of his subsequent false predictions. He later stated he was as convinced then as he was later on with his revised dating of the prophecies and with the accuracy of the God-given ideas.

February, 1996 Yavoh newsletter

"After the Lord instructed me to do so, I declared that the Middle East Peace Accord of 1993 started the 70th week of Israel. Therefore, I am warning others to look for specific events to occur in 1996 and 1997 consistent with the timeline and the center event of the 7-year period, the Abomination of Desolation.

To that end, I am preparing and warning others that the Great Tribulation spoken of by Daniel and Yeshua will begin Feb/Mar of 1997. These dates were set by God when He started the 70th week.

Because I teach people to look for specific things, I am criticized as a "datesetter."  But in defense of the argument, I remind people that I didn't make the Middle East Peace Accord of 1993 happen, nor did I select the Feast of Booths by the mouth of Zechariah. I am drawing a conclusion based on a Scriptural understanding. Further, I have openly called all men to examine my words and scrutinize them. If what I say does not happen, then brand me as a false prophet, listen to me no more, and heap the ridicule on to prevent others from making the same mistake. But I would remind you in accordance with the Scripture not to despise a prophetic utterance until it has been proven false.

The irony of this whole situation is stunning. I call for the testing of all prophets. I have made my message and its measurement clear. If the altar is not stopped in Feb/Mar of 1997 in Jerusalem, then throw me on the trash heap. But if the altar service is stopped 3 1/2 years after the peace agreement, will you then trust God to deliver you? Will you believe the other prophecies that follow?" 9

Notice that Monte Judah stated that "the Lord instructed me to..." and then said he was "drawing a conclusion based on a Scriptural understanding". If it was based on his own scriptural understanding then God did not instruct him to make the false statements. Note the contradiction of his claim that his understanding wasn't just from his own studies, but from God directly "instructing" him and then labeling himself with the term "prophet." Those 'prophecies were proven false, as are his newer renditions on the same issues.

Since it was proven false---and he stated that he made these prophetic declarations, "After the Lord instructed me to do so", and as he stated if it was false, he was to be viewed as a false prophet and not listened to ever again...which would have been the Scriptural obedience issue for all who bothered with him as a 'leader', teacher or prophet.

However, he later noted that many of his supporters encouraged him to continue. Despite being a false prophet, and in April 1999 claimed that God told him to "get back on my feet." This, of course, was the same God that he claimed had "instructed him" to declare the false prophecies. God doesn't lie or give false prophecies to those who serve Him. Jesus is the Spirit of prophecy and no lie can be of Him.

Tit 1:2 In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;

Heb 6:18 That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us:

Monte Judah almost immediately went back to speculating on prophecy again, on the same issues with his revised theories/dates. And he has continued to do so, with his ministry statements bearing the words' prophetic ministry etc. .

May 1998 Yavoh newsletter [bolding color added]

Where are we in God's end time scenario? It is spring of 1998, and we are awash with signs of the end times. But, where are we exactly? How close are we to the Great Tribulation? Given that the Holy Spirit and the Scriptures are our compass and map to understand these events, what has happened, what is happening, and what is about to happen? Let's review five areas as to where we are and synchronize our prophetic watches ...

WATCH! Watch for the cornerstone to be set, the altar to be built and dedicated.
WATCH! Watch for the Great Tribulation to start with the shutting down of the daily altar service.
WARNING! Do not speak against this altar when it is set-up! God will measure us all by where we stand with the altar. The altar is God's ownership mark on the earth, where His Name is placed, declaring that the earth is the Lord's and everything in it. Speaking against God's ownership mark is joining ranks with the antimessiah and participating in the abomination...


What can we conclude from all this information about the Middle East Peace Accord? First, September 1993 was not the start of the 70th week of Israel. We know this conclusively because the Great Tribulation (the altar shutdown) did not occur 3 1/2 years later (the winter of 1997). The OSLO II agreement was signed September 28, 1995. It could be the start of the seven-year period if the Great Tribulation begins in the winter of 1999. For that to happen, the altar must first be set-up sometime in 1998, so it can be shutdown to start the Great Tribulation day count.

If the altar is set-up and the Great Tribulation does begin in 1999, then pay particular attention to January 25, 1999. That date is 1,335 days prior to the Feast of Booths in 2002. Also pay close attention to February 24, it could be the day the image is set-up ...

1. In 1996 and 1997, we clearly saw the sign of the red moons on three Biblical holidays. Disturbing events happened in Israel with each one as well. The Scripture is clear that we would see signs in the heavens such as blood moons. The comet Hale-Bopp caused a stir in early 1996 and was a clear sign of destruction coming. Now that they have passed, does anyone remember the signs? Has anyone taken warning? ...

If the sun doesn’t get us, then the meteroids will. Apparently, on November 17, 1998 or November 18, 1999, the Earth will pass through the dust trail of comet Tempel-Tuttle. A meteroid (a tiny meteorite) storm will enter our atmosphere. This occurs every 33 years; but, this is the first year with satellites in orbit. These little specks of debris called the Leonid meteroid storm will threaten the world’s 500 satellites with the impact of .22 caliber bullets. Satellites don’t perform well after they have been shot-up like a road sign.

WATCH! Watch for big power outages, satellite communication failures, and increased radiation from the sun.

3. The astronomical community has made a clear prediction that the earth will be hit by a large asteroid within the next 3-4 years. This is a statistical probability.

According to one scientist, Dr. Tom Garrels, the head of the NASA Spacewatch program, we will be hit and it will cause a deep impact into the earth causing dirt and debris to be blown into the earth's atmosphere. This debris will be sufficient to darken the sun for six months. It is not a question of if; it is only a question of when.

This guy is not alone; this is the consensus position of the world's scientists. NASA and the USAF have active programs to catalog and potentially react to a Near Earth Orbit event. According to Revelation, the darkness will last only five months, but who is counting? ...

1.
The Scriptures tell us that a prince of the people (Romans) who destroyed the sanctuary (temple) would rise to power and lead the world to great destruction. He is called the son of perdition (destruction) and he is ultimately judged by the Messiah King. This Roman prince is called the antimessiah and the beast.

It appears that such a man has emerged into the world that fits all the identifying prophecies of the antimessiah. His name is Prince Charles of Wales ...

There is more evidence to suggest that Prince Charles is the antimessiah than you have to prove your own identity.

WATCH! Watch everything that Prince Charles does and says, particularly if he goes to Israel.


2. Since the death of Princess Diana, Prince Charles has emerged on the world scene with unusual vigor and enthusiasm. Evidence is now mounting that he is pulling strings behind the scenes and accelerating the worlds move toward globalism - One World Government. His influential theme is under the banner of Sustainable Environment, Sustainable Business, and Sustainable Government. It is all the same thing - an agreement between business and government to operate in union with the environment. Those who get on board and cooperate fully receive favor ...

Am I saying that the Great Tribulation begins in the winter of 1999? No. I am saying it could and we will know for sure by the events in Jerusalem. Am I trying to alarm people and cause them to be concerned. No. The events themselves are doing that just fine. Have I lost my "marbles" and decided to "check out of this world" like a survivalist nut? No. I am watching closely and comparing actual events with Scripture. I’m saying it is time to be sober and wise about this subject. In the first century, spiritual thinking was dominated by Yeshua’s resurrection and ascending to heaven. Today, our thinking should be dominated by Yeshua’s descent from heaven and our resurrection.

Once the Great Tribulation begins, we will hold onto the blessed hope. We will count 1,290 days and then we will see..."

In 1999, Monte Judah again addressed in the Lion and Lamb Ministries newsletter, Yavoh-He is Coming, the matter of his 1997 error. He painted a different picture about anyone who would hold him accountable for his "the Lord instructed me" declarations. Written in April 1999, we see below, that in the following months and by October that year, he was right back to statements regarding specific time scenarios. In his proclamations and warnings from the October 1999 newsletter, which included "confirmation from God", that the Tribulation was going to happen in 2000. Which didn't happen. Again. Proven false prophet again, but undeterred.

Please note that specific Yavoh archival newsletters were removed from his website. So the record from his own website information is only available to those who have the research archived.  However, one can search the internet and find longtime supporters and critics still have record of his 1996/97 false predictions and subsequent ones.

April 1999- Yavoh, He is Coming>

"The Bible does not hide the mistakes of our Patriarchs or the men of the Bible. You have heard the proverb, "To error is human." You need not look further than the Bible to see the legacy of many men whom have made incredible mistakes. It is to God's credit that the mistakes of men are not hidden and are dealt with honestly by the Bible. God doesn't gloss over the mistakes of men nor does He overstate and dwell on them. Yeshua's sacrifice is contrasted against the backdrop of man's sins and mistakes to bring forgiveness and reconciliation. The real message of the Bible is about reconciliation and restoration of man and his mistakes.

But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. ROM 5:8

If the love of God is demonstrated in His sacrifice and resulting forgiveness for us as sinners, then it follows that our love of the brethren is demonstrated in our forgiveness of our brethren's mistakes as well. The commandment to "love one another" is not illustrated by everyone not making mistakes; it is best seen when brethren do make mistakes and they are forgiven and restored among the brethren. Every new believer receives this, why does it not extend to those brethren who make mistakes after they have been in the assembly for some period of time? Is our faith a "one-shot thing"? You are forgiven for all your past sins when you become a believer, but you are not forgiven should you offend one of your brethren later. The Bible does not teach that. Yeshua taught, "Father, forgive our trespasses even as we forgive those whom have trespassed against us." This thing about "loving one another" continues on day by day.

In recent weeks, some of my past mistakes have been brought up again. These are not mistakes that I have covered up or tried to hide. They are mistakes that I have openly confessed before God and my brethren. I have asked, bowing my heart before all, for forgiveness. My God has forgiven me and some of my brethren have forgiven me, but some have not. Some of my brethren have decided that my mistakes are so grievous and humiliating that I should never be heard from nor accepted into fellowship again. Unknown to my critical brethren, this is an effort of our common enemy satan to discredit, devalue, and destroy me and the service God has given me. "It is discouraging to hear any report of brethren putting down other brethren. It is the dialogue you would expect among devils in the pit, rather than brethren in the pews. "We Christians are the only people who shoot our wounded and feed each other to the meat grinders. We preach the virtues of forgiveness and being made whole, but we have no tolerance of one another. If our theology or eschatology differs slightly, we cast each other to the side and dismiss their testimonies in entirety. So much for loving our brethren.

I have felt the sting of brotherly betrayal. I know how fair weather friends are. ...I have ministered to thousands, but only a few have forgiven my mistakes ...

In the spring and summer of 1996, the Lord opened the doors of many brethren for me to share insights into the prophetic look of the second coming. In particular, I called upon people to watch closely the Middle East Peace Accord as it appeared to fulfill many end time prophecies. It followed the prophetic scenario to watch even closer the winter periods three and half years after the peace accord signatories. That is to say, I called up all of you to watch the winter time frame three and half years after the September 13, 1993 initial interim agreement concerning the Middle East. IF that agreement was the beginning of the 70th week of Israel, THEN we should see the prophesied middle events in the 1997 winter time frame. Before we ever got to the winter of 1997, however, something else happened.

Some of my brethren in the spring and summer of 1996 decided my whole understanding of prophecy was so flawed that they announced that I was a "false prophet."
. ..Improper motives were assigned to me and other brethren were openly scorned and embarrassed for even mentioning my name or any of the teaching. It was said that I was personally enriching myself and "fleecing the flock." Who were these people doing everything in their power to discourage and slander me? They were my brethren; they were leading men in Messianic congregations, churches and other ministries. They chose to attack and discredit me, preach against me from pulpits, and write against me in publications. These complaints were so ridiculous and absurd that I found myself laughing instead of recognizing the real work of our enemy. I thought myself to be wise by ignoring such falsehoods and slander.

...Some brethren have received my message and teaching in a balanced way. They have become excited about the Lord, and the prophecies;...

. ...and go on to quote me from a statement I made in September of 1996. In that statement, (acting out my frustration for their illogical criticism) I instructed my critics to call me "false" and throw me on the "trash heap" if the Great Tribulation didn't begin in the winter of 1997. I even went so far as to say I would shut down Lion and Lamb Ministries. Did I say that?!? Yes, I did. Why did I make such presumptive and "dumb" statements? There are several lousy reasons: 1) I wanted my critics to stop attacking me and my brethren. 2) I was angry with my critics and wanted to prove them wrong. 3) I wanted to be accepted and prove that I was right. God let me wade right into that mess and make a big mistake.

I apologized for my presumptive speech in April of 1997 to more than 10,000 households. I did not prophesy in the name of the Lord that the Great Tribulation would begin in 1997. I transformed my IF/THEN logic statement into a declarative conclusion. It was wrong. I have repented. "

[Vic note > Recall ****February, 1996 Yavoh newsletter "After the Lord instructed me to do so, I declared that the Middle East Peace Accord of 1993 started the 70th week of Israel. Therefore, I am warning others to look for specific events to occur in 1996 and 1997 consistent with the timeline and the center event of the 7-year period, the Abomination of Desolation. To that end, I am preparing and warning others that the Great Tribulation spoken of by Daniel and Yeshua will begin Feb/Mar of 1997. These dates were set by God when He started the 70th week. ]

"I asked the Lord what He wanted me to do then. He told me to get back on my feet and walk uprightly before Him....

"...All of my brethren have made mistakes, some bigger than others, but mistakes all just the same. ...Some brethren think that they are doing the right thing by accusing other brethren of mistakes. I think this is our biggest mistake. The devil is the "accuser of the brethren." The God we serve does not go around pointing out our wrongs or dwelling on them to destroy us. [Vic note***Read the Scriptures--they are filled with the record of obedience and disobedience and God's views, repeated warnings and His judgments] He seeks reconciliation, correction and the restoration of us all. When a Christian points out the mistake of another brother, no matter how accurate, and his purpose is not for reconciliation and restoration, then he is doing the work of the devil. The devil does not want to correct anything. He just wants to tear it down more. The devil wants to destroy, annihilate, devalue, cheapen, and decrease all of us. It is in the devil's best interest for us to do this to one another. God, on the other hand, instructs us to restore a brother and not destroy one another or ourselves...

...We are commanded to love our enemies, especially when they are our brethren. [Vic note** true brethren aren't the enemy. Reproving, Rebuking and correcting are part of what is to be done because of love of others] It is not something we are to take under advisement. We are commanded to do it. When a brother makes a mistake and refuses help, reconciliation, and restoration then we must leave him to the Master; we do not get to curse him if we refuse to forgive and be reconciled to him. Then we place ourselves at the steps of the Master in disobedience. It hurts me when I'm accused of things I haven't done or said. ...

I ask my brethren, once again, to forgive me. I ask my brethren to stop reminding everyone of my mistakes and forgetting to share my apology. Please, stop using my apology as the confirming evidence of having done wrong. Please, stop chastising other brethren because they do forgive me. I ask my brethren to argue the merits of their opinion contrary to mine with mutual respect and brotherly love...." 11

The apology for the original false prophecies was removed from the public view.
****
There's a difference in forgiving someone and allowing one to follow false teaching. There's a difference between apologizing and repenting--and leaving the behavior behind. Continuing with the same beliefs or practices that are proven error or false shows lack of repentance. Part of correction is Biblical obedience and using the Scriptures as the standard. Here's what God says about false prophets. This is just a brief look at His views on the matter:

Deu 18:20 But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die.
21 And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the LORD hath not spoken?
22 When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.

Jer 23:25 I have heard what the prophets said, that prophesy lies in my name, saying, I have dreamed, I have dreamed.
26 How long shall this be in the heart of the prophets that prophesy lies? yea, they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart;

Jer 23:28 The prophet that hath a dream, let him tell a dream; and he that hath my word, let him speak my word faithfully. What is the chaff to the wheat? saith the LORD.
29 Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?
30 Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets, saith the LORD, that steal my words every one from his neighbour.

Jer 23:31 Behold, I am against the prophets, saith the LORD, that use their tongues, and say, He saith.

Jer 23:32 Behold, I am against them that prophesy false dreams, saith the LORD, and do tell them, and cause my people to err by their lies, and by their lightness; yet I sent them not, nor commanded them: therefore they shall not profit this people at all, saith the LORD.
33 And when this people, or the prophet, or a priest, shall ask thee, saying, What is the burden of the LORD? thou shalt then say unto them, What burden? I will even forsake you, saith the LORD.
34 And as for the prophet, and the priest, and the people, that shall say, The burden of the LORD, I will even punish that man and his house.

Jer 23:36 And the burden of the LORD shall ye mention no more: for every man's word shall be his burden; for ye have perverted the words of the living God, of the LORD of hosts our God.

Jer 29:8 For thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Let not your prophets and your diviners, that be in the midst of you, deceive you, neither hearken to your dreams which ye cause to be dreamed.
9 For they prophesy falsely unto you in my name: I have not sent them, saith the LORD.

"a false prophet," search in the Scriptures can also be found mentioned in: Luk 6:26; 2Pe 2:1; Mat 7:15; Mat 24:11, Mat 24:24; Mar 13:22; Act 13:6; 1Jo 4:1; with reference to a false "prophet" destined to rise with the "Beast" Rev 16:13; Rev 19:20; Rev 20:10 Rev 13:11.

Jesus said: Matthew 7:15-23 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17. Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. 21. Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23. And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Part of the fruit of the Spirit is obedience to the Scriptures, sound doctrine and what someone says should be true and verifiable to the Scriptures. False prophets are not of God. It's not about 'forgiveness' on the part of the recipients of the false prophecies of false prophets. It's knowing they have said that God told them to say something...when in fact He did not. It's a lie. Mistakes are oops, I'm sorry I shouldn't have said that.  It's not declaring and publishing what has been said is prophecy directly from God, or God said or told them to say it. True prophets aren't on a 'learning curve' to get it right. Either what is said is given by God or it isn't.

A proven false prophet should not ever be in a position of prophesying or leadership again--because they can never be trusted or believed, even if they become faithful to Christ in their lives...That's the problem with false prophets, and those in leadership who remain in leadership after being proven false. They can be forgiven, but that doesn't mean they should continue in the venue they started in. Especially when the same scenarios happen again and again with the same person, still trying to be a prophet. They are a prophet. But, They are just a false prophet.

September 1999 Yavoh [red added]

"...The fall holidays of Feast of Trumpets, Day of Atonement, and the Feast of Booths (Tabernacles) are again upon us. September 11, 1999, at sundown, Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year) will begin with the sounding of trumpets. Ten days later, Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement) will be the day we “afflict our souls” with a fast. Then five days later, Sukkoth (Booths, Tents) will be observed with rejoicing for eight consecutive days. Aside from the fact that they are Biblical holidays for all of God’s people, these holidays lay out the pattern for the Lord’s second coming.

The holidays that are upon us foretell the events of the Messiah’s coming with the sounding of a trumpet, the judgment of God upon the earth, and the wedding of the Lamb at the beginning of the Messianic Kingdom. It is important for us to clearly understand and anticipate the second coming of our Lord. Failing to observe these holidays is evidence of unpreparedness and unbelief in God’s promise to return. [bolding in original]

...Paul said that we know the season and the year of the Lord’s coming. He said there is no more need for further written evidence to understand those two elements (1 Thes 5:1). Paul taught that certain events would happen before the Lord’s coming and our gathering to Him. Thus, we would be able to determine the season and year. Consider this, we know that the Great Tribulation begins in the season of winter, extends three and half years, with Messiah returning in the season of summer. When the Abomination of Desolation occurs and the Great Tribulation begins, we will then know the year of the Lord’s coming (3 2 years later). This matches the pattern of the Biblical holidays. The Feast of Trumpets occurs in the late summer and early fall. The Messiah is coming to fulfill them just as He fulfilled the earlier holidays with His first coming.

...Madeline Albright is planning to be in Israel early September to sign an agreement making February 2000 to be the completion date for the final status talks on Jerusalem. Like all events in the Middle East, we have to wait and see what really happens. But, February is extremely significant to the prophetic timeline. Just as the prophecy said, the Great Tribulation must begin in winter. And… the beginning of the Great Tribulation must be 1,335 days prior to the Feast of Tabernacles (back to our fall holidays). February 20, 2000 is 1,335 days prior to the Feast of Tabernacles 2003. It is also Purim Katan. Purim is when we remember Haman (a type for the antimessiah) who purposed to kill the Jews (the story of Esther). On March 20th (30 days later), Purim occurs. It is also the scheduled date for the Pope to be in Jerusalem.

...If Y2k doesn’t get the electric company, a CME from the sun probably will. However, the really intriguing part about these solar eruptions is the Sun’s part in the prophecy for the Great Tribulation.

Early in the Great Tribulation, the trees and grass are to be burned up by the sun. In fact, the prophecy is very specific that the sun is to have signs and scorch mankind. Do you remember years ago how we used to go out and play in the Sun all day? Now, we wouldn’t dream of going out without Sun block 45. Want to hear something really scary? Solar scientists are telling us that the sun is about to peak in its disruption rate between November 1999 and April 2000. ...the Sun is to cause a lot of difficulty for on the earth during the Great Tribulation. Specifically, the prophecy says that 1/3 of the trees and all the grass are to be burned up. Then the Sun’s light is darkened 1/3 along with the moon and stars. What is so amazing is that the present Sun activity could do everything the prophecy says after this winter and continue into the next few years...." 12

October 1999 Yavoh newsletter [bolding color added]

"... With the September 13, 1999 initiation of the final status talks on Jerusalem, we appear to have entered the final year of the 70th week of Israel. There is only one more winter time frame for the Great Tribulation to begin in - the winter of 1999 and 2000. Last month’s article in Yavoh detailed what is converging on the year 2000. Aside from Y2k, solar eruptions, the Biblical year 6000-6001, the article focused on events leading to the start of the great tribulation. With these powerful evidences of God’s timing in our days, the diagram provided presents a possible 10-year sequence: 1993 to 2003.

...... A huge question hung over me in 1997, 1998, and leading up to the present. If the Middle East Peace Accord was the prophesied agreement in Daniel 9:27, then where was the tribulation? I kept watching and kept looking for the Lord to manifest the truth. The whole matter began to weigh upon me as I saw events converging on the year 2,000. Finally, I asked the Lord to resolve the matter for me one way or the other by this fall holiday period. He has. My heart is vindicated. All the signs and the insight God gave me in 1983 leading to the 1993 start, the confirmation He promised me in the fall of 1995 has now been confirmed as well. It won’t be long now and everyone will see for themselves. [Vic note *recall the 1982 program for gematria and determining Prince Charles as antichrist--we can assume other calculations for predictions were also made in that manner]

But the question I must face is how do I proceed in sharing this understanding. Specifically, do I warn my brethren that the Great Tribulation is about to begin in 2000, having been mistaken about it in 1997? I was convinced in late 1996 when I gave warning. Am I making the same mistake I made three years ago? Or is this like Moses who supposed 40 years to early that he would lead the exodus. Is this now the time to give warning at greater risk to my reputation and possible harm to the brethren? The answer, I believe, is found in the events that will happen this fall and early winter.

I am convinced even more so now than I was then. And, part of that conviction is the actual experience of having made my mistake in 1996. Call it tenacity if you will, but I believe it is part of the prophecy as well.
My part then and still is Psalm 25:1-3. Let me not be ashamed, O Lord. Those who wait upon Me will not be ashamed. This is my heart, but the question remains as to what you are convinced of.

Do you believe that we are in the 70th week, or is it another amazing coincidence?

I have waited for the Great Tribulation to begin for many years. I believe the Lord will vindicate my faith and those who dealt with me treacherously will be ashamed. This is the Lord’s promise.  

Therefore, brethren, please be advised and give serious consideration to this matter. I believe we are watching the 70th week in action. If you believe that this is the 70th week of Israel, then you must conclude that the Great Tribulation begins this winter. The confirmation will come in the anticipated list of events. Let me say it again as clear as possible. IF you believe we are in the last year of the covenant with death, the pact with the grave, the peace and security agreement spoken of by the prophets, THEN you must believe that the 3 1/2 year great tribulation is about to begin.

Now is the time to make your final preparations. Now is the time to watch carefully. Don’t let the cares of the world weigh you down. Assemble with your like-minded brethren.

Consider this: We may be in His Kingdom is less than four years. The world is rapidly growing faint in the light of the last day. May the Lord bless and keep you all brethren. Next month, I hope to share with you what is happening with the European Union early next year. It, too, matches the prophetic events." 13

No Scripture tells us to be waiting for the tribulation. We are in fact, to be looking for Christ's appearing, and we are to be about His business of sharing the Gospel, and doing His will, not speculating with these endless and false predictions so many are focusing on instead of Christ.

Mat 24:42 Watch therefore: for ye know not on what day your Lord cometh.
43 But know this, that if the master of the house had known in what watch the thief was coming, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken through. 44 Therefore be ye also ready; for in an hour that ye think not the Son of man cometh.
45 Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath set over his household, to give them their food in due season?
46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.
47 Verily I say unto you, that he will set him over all that he hath. 48 But if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord tarrieth; 49 and shall begin to beat his fellow-servants, and shall eat and drink with the drunken; 50 the lord of that servant shall come in a day when he expecteth not, and in an hour when he knoweth not, 51 and shall cut him asunder, and appoint his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be the weeping and the gnashing of teeth.

1Co 1:7 So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ: 8 Who shall also confirm you unto the end, that ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Php 3:20 For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: 21 Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.

Jas 5:7 Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain. 8 Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh.

1Th 1:10 And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.

Heb 9:28 So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.

2Ti 4:8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.

2 Peter 3:11-14 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, 12. Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? 13. Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. 14. Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.

Tit 2:11 For the grace of God hath appeared, bringing salvation to all men,
12 instructing us, to the intent that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly and righteously and godly in this present world;
13 looking for the blessed hope and appearing of the glory of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
14 who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a people for his own possession, zealous of good works.

As we can see, Monte Judah believed his own prophecy again in 1999, date setting and the unfurling of events. Perhaps one could say once a false prophet always a false prophet because Scriptural obedience has been set aside for these declarations, not just for him, but all who follow his every word, as being from God.  That and that his 'ministry' should be supported at all costs. Regardless how many false prophecies and errant doctrines are propagated as God given truth.

What is most interesting is that even today, using the same scenarios and still revising his dates for his failed predictions of over thirteen years and his continued promotion of Prince Charles being the the antichrist, we see his currents predictions that were posted to a forum December 2008:

OBAMA NATION OF DESOLATION: "...Barack Obama being elected president. His election, however, is consistent with the “beginning of sorrows” spoken of prior to the abomination of desolation and the Great Tribulation.

...7. The Abomination of Desolation Will Occur…
If you held a gun to my head and demanded that I tell you the time frame of the Great Tribulation, when I expect the abomination of desolation to occur, then… I would say that the winter of 2013 (a couple of months after December 21, 2012) is the most likely candidate.
Why does the winter of 2013 through the summer of 2016 look so interesting as the period of the Great Tribulation?

Do you remember me mentioning that there are a lot of prophecies about the Great Tribulation? The prophecies are very specific with many details sequencing events before and after key events. The prophecies are in a Hebrew context. Understanding and interpreting them correctly requires a Hebraic understanding. ....

[Vic note** So far being Hebrew in "thinking" and "understanding" and "interpreting" with a "hebraic understanding" has merely proven how false that premise is and how false a false prophet can be.]

"The Appointed Times (the Biblical Feasts) are paramount to understanding the sequences. Understanding the ancient exodus and the anniversary dates for the judgments is crucial. All of these clues together are like the tumblers in a lock waiting for the right key. The key that fits is a specific set of years, months, days, seasons, days of the week, and the Biblical feasts which match the pattern of the tribulation time line prophecies. Therefore, the time line can be used to anticipate the future time frame that matches it.

The winter of 2013 through the summer of 2016 matches the time line perfectly. We have included a time line in this issue. [link: Tribulation Timeline]

So, am I prophesying when the abomination of desolation is going to occur? No. But ask me that question after we get through 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012 when the previous items 1 through 6 have occurred. If the prerequisites are satisfied, the time line will be almost anti-climatic. Once the abomination of desolation occurs, everyone will be focused on the prophecies happening, not the possibility of them happening in the future. Where will you be in 2012? How much older will you be? It’s only four years away. ..." by Monte Judah "  14


If at first you become a false prophet...keep trying. However.... there are no Scriptures to support that concept or false prophets. There are many who deal in date setting and failed predictions as a mainstay for their "ministries" and which invariably brings shame on our Lord. It is only because the recipients of such refuse to be Biblically obedient in these matters that they can continue to prosper and have an audience at all. God will hold both the false prophets and those who listen to them, accountable. For more on the practice of date setting, among the many articles documenting similar guesswork, please see: Date Setting Hypocrisy
