The defining statement of the HolyLight4U website is deeply rooted in Luke 21:34-36:

“And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.”

The days in which we live are the LAST of the Last Days. Many things have already happened and are happening that readily exposes this as a fact. There has been a dramatic increase in earthquakes, tornadoes, volcanic eruptions, hurricanes, tsunamis, floods, famines, wars, plagues, the tetrad of lunar eclipses from March of 2014-September of 2015 (also called blood moons), comets and meteorites, the rise of ufo activity around the world, solar eclipses and unusual, dangerous solar flares. Jesus said clearly in Luke 21:9-11, 25 that “ye shall hear of wars and commotions,” but to not be “terrified: for these things must first come to pass…nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven…And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and waves roaring.”

In the past, people have seen snippets of this passage being fulfilled: A famine here, an earthquake there. However, at the present time we are seeing ALL of these signs happening simultaneously. Even so, when ALL of these things together are witnessed coming to pass, Jesus encouraged us in Matthew 24:32-35 to “learn the parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.”

When Jesus speaks of the fig tree in this passage and in Luke 21:29-31, He was speaking to his disciples in a parable. The parable is about the fig tree and some other trees budding. The fig tree throughout Scripture has always referred to Israel. In 1948 Israel was declared a nation by the United Nations. But they were not the only nation birthed at that time. In the years surrounding 1948, other nations were born (granted independence) including modern day Egypt (1952), Syria (1946), Jordan (1946), Lebanon (1943), etc. Indeed, the fig tree and the other trees of Luke 21 began to bud in the years 1946-1952. And Jesus said that the generation who sees these trees (nations) begin to put forth leaves and who sees ALL of the other signs of disaster and war as well, is the generation who will not pass away until Jesus Himself returns and the Bible is fulfilled in its entirety.

Even so, there is one more thing that Jesus said will be prevalent among this generation that sees all of these events coming to pass: False Prophets and Lying Signs and Wonders. Many will come saying “I am anointed”, but Jesus said, do not be deceived. Time and again, in parable after parable, Jesus emphatically taught His followers to be awake, be sober, be vigilant, be prayerful, be mindful and be alert. These words were not spoken to frighten nor were they spoken in vain. These words are still ours today and are to be enacted in everything that we say and do as the Body of Christ. For, indeed, the closer we get to the return of Christ, the more darkness will masquerade as light. According to 2 Corinthians 11:14, the devil and his minions appear as an angels of light and even are preaching another gospel (Galatians 1:8) and are prowling around like a lion (1 Peter 5:8) seeking those who are not being vigilant or alert in order to steal, kill and destroy them (John 10:10).

While people may agree that all the other signs of disasters around the world are multiplying by leaps and bounds, this one concerning lying signs and wonders and false prophets they merely shrug off and/or assign to men such as Jim Jones, Sun Myung Moon and David Koresh. However, not enough people are running after men such as this in order for it to be a fulfillment of what Jesus said. If all the other signs have increased dramatically, then this one too must have increased dramatically. And, indeed it has. But because of it being so deceiving, not many have detected it. Everywhere, there are those saying they are anointed. There are signs everywhere. There is light everywhere. There are miracles everywhere. There are prophecies everywhere. But the light is not God’s, and the signs and miracles and prophecies are not God’s though they are done in the name of Christ.

How can we not be deceived? Matthew 7:15-20 states, 15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. 16 You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? 17 Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Therefore by their fruits you will know them.” How can we know what good fruit versus bad fruit is? By knowing God’s word and with the help of the Holy Spirit. Second Timothy 3:16-17 reads, “All scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work.” It is through His word that we are taught, reproved, corrected, and trained. Without it we are none of those things. Therefore, we don’t want to be “unskilled in the word of righteousness”, but skilled and able to consume the “solid food” of the Word which “is for the mature, for those who have their powers of discernment trained by constant practice to distinguish good from evil” (Hebrews 5:14). And it is the Holy Spirit who will “bring all things” to our “remembrance” (John 14:26).

This HolyLight website is all about revealing what is really happening in the Church today, teaching what the Bible says about these things, and encouraging Christians to be discerning NOT deceived.
