Until you understand the symbolism of the different beasts in John's apocalyptic vision, end-time prophecy will remain largely confusing. As a result, you could be blindsided by major events in the future. That's why it's important to carefully study prophetic symbolism today, before the prophesied events come to pass.
The following was transcribed from the audio of Alexander's 5/3/2018 interview with Tony Koretz on A Minute to Midnite. Many thanks go to Phillipa C. of Australia for doing the transcribing!
2018 will move us towards an Ephesians 4 reality as Abba focuses on the establishment of His true ekklesia (assembly/government) on the earth. This will be marked by genuine koinonia (unity/communion/brotherly love). We will experience shifting, sifting and shaking this year as Elohiym cuts down briars, uproots dead trees, and levels the ground so that he may lay a perfect foundation.
YHVH will increase divine order within his ekklesia, both on individual and corporate levels. In this coming season, many will be required to relocate their lives as He connects His people with the right co-laborers. The days of one-man shows are drawing to a close; the days of selfless collaboration are coming.

Ever since I began studying Bible prophecy, I've witnessed a lot of conjecture and disagreement about the city that will be the embodiment of Mystery Babylon in the last days. In the Book of Revelation she is called "that great city which reigns over the kings of the earth" (17:18). The most popular contenders for that ignominious station are Rome, New York, and Jerusalem. Those cities are all great in the strictest sense of the word, but do any of them perfectly match the biblical descriptions in all aspects? No, they do not.
Today I'm coming to you with strong biblical evidence—dare I say proof?—that the hub of reborn Babylon will be back where it started, in southern Mesopotamia. The verses which support this claim are found in the Book of Jeremiah.
How would you respond if a true prophet of YHVH came on the scene calling down plagues from heaven while preaching repentance, and shooting fire from his mouth to consume anyone who dares attack him? I hope that your response would be to cheer him on, listen to him carefully, and get everyone you know to pay attention to him.
Not only will we be given one such prophet, we will be given two at the same time, and they are coming within our lifetimes. According the prophecy within the Book of Revelation, their ministry will begin seven years before the return of Y'shua, and will last for exactly three-and-a-half years, until the Antichrist murders them. The last book of the Bible does not tell us who these men will be, but if we search through some lesser-known scriptures we may find some clues about their identities.
After being instructed by the glorified Y'shua to write letters to seven congregations in Asia (which stand for the seven kinds of assemblies that exist leading up to the last days), the apostle John was taken in the spirit to heaven, where he witnessed Y'shua as the Lamb of God, breaking open the seals on a scroll. The breaking of each scroll triggered an event. The first four scrolls brought out four horses of different colors, each with a rider whose purpose was to negatively affect life on earth in a particular way.
The first horse was a white one, and he who sat on it held a bow. The rider was given a crown and sent forth to conquer. He is by far the most enigmatic of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. What is his identity? Has he already been released, or is he yet to come? What will he be conquering? We're going to take a look for clues in several places, and what we find may not conclusively solve the mystery, but we will at least end up with a viable theory.

8 Keys to Personal Moral Excellence While LIving in Spiritual Egypt
"Y'shua told him, 'Whoever has already bathed needs only to wash his feet, and he will be completely clean'" (John 13:10).
Those who have repented and been baptized into Messiah's name have been made spiritually clean. Yet, as with the disciples' feet that Y'shua washed, the part of ourselves that contacts the earth—our fleshly or material man—must be subjected to the spirit and purified. This life-changing eBook, provided at no cost, aims to help believers live beyond reproach in a morally bankrupt world.
