WE TEND to think of prophecy as events that were either fulfilled in the past or will occur in the distant future. But there are events on the timeline of end times Bible prophecies that are due to come to pass very soon.

Bill Salus joins us to discuss his new book The Now Prophecies, and why we need to watch Iran, Syria, Jordan, Egypt, Israel–and the United States.

Discuss these topics at the VFTB Facebook page and check out the great Christian podcasters at the Revelations Radio Network.




Introducing Bill’s New Book: The NOW Prophecies

What are the NOW Prophecies?


By Bill Salus

The NOW Prophecies are the unfulfilled ancient biblical predictions that appear to be imminent, which means they could happen at any time. These foretellings have either minor or no remaining preconditions inhibiting them from happening now or in the very near future.

The NOW Prophecies deal with the most relevant information for this present generation, because they describe events that will likely find fulfillment during its existence. All unfulfilled biblical prophecy is important to understand, but of most value to any given generation, past, present or future, is the information that was specifically provided through the ancient Hebrew prophecies for its benefit.

Noah was given a NOW Prophecy about a forthcoming worldwide flood. Joseph’s NOW Prophecies dealt with seven years of plenty that would be swallowed up by seven years of ensuing famine in Egypt. The prophet Jeremiah warned about seventy years of desolation in Judah and dispersion from Judah. In all of these instances it was the NOW Prophecies that benefited the affected populations the most. The timely predictions enabled the peoples to prepare for the powerful events that directly affected them!

NextThere are three categories of coming biblical prophecies. They are the;
1.) NOW Prophecies,
2.) NEXT Prophecies,
3.) LAST Prophecies.

The NEXT Prophecies are those that follow the fulfillment of the NOW Prophecies. In essence, the NOW’s provide the necessary nexus of events that pave the path for the execution of the NEXT Prophecies. Although the NEXT Prophecies are rapidly racing toward fulfillment, they require the completion of the NOW’s in order for their stage to become appropriately set.

The LAST Prophecies still have significant preconditions preventing them from finding fulfillment. They will find fulfillment relatively soon, but the LAST’s have to wait in line behind the NOW’s and NEXT‘s for their turn on the prophetic timeline.

Which are the NOW Prophecies?

The NOW Prophecies include, but are not limited to, the following globally impacting events. They are the;

• Disaster in Iran – (Jeremiah 49:34-39),
• Destruction of Damascus – (Isaiah 17, Jer. 49:23-27),
• Toppling of Jordan – (Jer. 49:1-6, Zephaniah 2:8-10),
• Terrorization of Egypt – (Isaiah 19:1-18),
• Final Arab-Israeli War- (Psalm 83),
• Decline of America (Ezekiel 38:13), (America is identified as the young lions of Tarshish)
• Expansion of Israel – (Obadiah 1:19-20, Jer. 49:2, Zephaniah 2:9, Isaiah 19:18),
• Vanishing of the Christians – (1 Corinthians 15:51-52, 1 Thessalonians 4:15-18)

When will the NOW Prophecies happen?

This non-chronologically ordered and non-exhaustive list above identifies prophecies that are ready to happen NOW! However, they don’t all necessarily happen at the exact same time. Therefore, it is important to sequence them chronologically. Sequencing these events is a task tackled later on in this work, but at best it can only be an educated guess. The fact that these predictions are in the NOW category implies that only a minimal amount of time lapses between each event. One NOW episode should trigger the next one to follow relatively promptly on its heels.

The birth pain analogy applies in the sequencing of these NOW events. Likened to a woman about to become a mother through the birthing of her child, the NOW’s initiate the process of events leading to the return of Jesus Christ at His Second Coming! As the baby descends down the birth canal, the mother’s contractions become more intense, more frequent, and unstoppable! Similarly, once the NOW Prophecies begin they become more extreme, recurrent and unpreventable!

Why are the NOW Prophecies happening?

The fulfillment of the NOW Prophecies accomplishes specific purposes within the prophetic plans of God. The end of each episode evidences that the will of the Lord was manifested within and throughout the epic event. For instance, Psalm 83 results in the end of the ancient Arab hatred of the Jews described in Ezekiel 35:5 and 25:15. It also proves that the Lord’s Gentile foreign policy inscribed in Genesis 12:3 remains effectually intact. This is demonstrated by the cursing of the Psalm 83 Arabs for wanting to curse Israel in the prophetic war. Genesis 12:3 pronounces a curse upon those that would curse Israel.
