Will There Be Any “Safe” Places to Hide from the Antichrist?

The great tribulation will be an unprecedented time of difficulty on the earth. The Antichrist and his followers will seek to eliminate virtually anyone who opposes him and his one-world government, economy, and religion. Nevertheless, there will be some people on the earth at that time that will oppose the Antichrist and will try to seek refuge from the extreme persecution that will transpire at that time.

The purpose of this article is to provide my thoughts on whether there will be any safe places for people to hide from the Antichrist and his followers during the great tribulation in hopes that it will give people who may be on the earth at that time something to consider.

A Very Dangerous Time

I want to begin by making it clear that it will be very difficult for the opponents of the Antichrist to avoid persecution unscathed during the great tribulation. Here are some important reasons why it will be very difficult for an opponent of Antichrist to completely avoid persecution:

The Mark of the Beast

The Mark of the Beast system will make it difficult for an opponent of the Antichrist to buy or sell items without risk getting caught. The followers of the Antichrist will be required to get a mark (Revelation 13:16-17), so a person who is an opponent of the Antichrist will be distinguishable by not having one. Consequently, a person without a mark is at risk of being identified as an opponent of the Antichrist during a transaction if/when the counterparty in the transaction checks to see whether the person has the required mark to make the transaction.

Family Betrayal

The great tribulation is likely going to be a time when some families and friends will turn against each other as Christ mentioned in Matthew 24:12, Mark 13:12, and Luke 21:16. It’s not unreasonable to think that some opponents of the Antichrist will be turn into the authorities by their own family members or friends.

Technology Aiding Capture

The Antichrist and his followers are likely going to be equipped with advanced technology to hunt people and to monitor/spy on the movements of people. In addition, the Antichrist could have a high-tech reporting system to enable his followers to quickly report that they’ve encountered an opponent of the Antichrist.

Fallen Angels

Another consideration is the presence of Satan’s angels on the earth after they are cast out of Heaven with Satan (Revelation 12:9). These angels would be available to aid the Antichrist’s efforts to find and eliminate his opponents. For example, some of these angels could play a role as the false Christs and false prophets mentioned by Christ to draw people out from hiding:

“(24) For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. (25) Behold, I have told you before.(26) Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.” (Matthew 24:24-26)

For more about why it will be very difficult time for the Antichrist’s enemies, see my article on the persecution that will occur in the great tribulation.

Any “Safe” Places to Hide from the Antichrist?

The Judean Mountains

There may be a few locations that could provide opponents of the Antichrist some refuge from the intense persecution. The first location is the Judean Mountains as Christ told those who will be in Judea at the time the abomination of desolation is established to flee to the mountains:

“(15) When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) (16) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: (17)  Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: (18)  Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. (19)  And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! (20)  But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: (21)  For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.” (Matthew 24:15-21, also see Mark 13:14-19, Luke 21:20-23)

The Wilderness

Another relatively safe location may be the wilderness area of Revelation 12 since Revelation 12:6, 14-16 mentions that the “woman”, whom I believe is connected to the remnant of Israel, will be able to find nourishment at the wilderness area for 3 ½ years (time, and times, and half a time):

“(6) And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days… (14) And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. (15) And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. (16) And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.” (Revelation 12:6, 14-16)

The location of this wilderness area is subject to debate, but I believe Edom, Moab and Ammon are the primary locations which will comprise the wilderness area mainly because Daniel 11:41 suggests that each of these locations will escape an attack by the Antichrist:

“He shall enter also into the glorious land, and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon.” (Daniel 11:41)

More on why I believe Edom, Moab and Ammon are the primary locations that will comprise the wilderness area mentioned in Revelation 12 can be found at the following link: Ezekiel 20:35: Wilderness of the People Insights

Good Samaritans

Finally, I would not rule out the possibility for some opponents of the Antichrist to encounter individuals who will be willing to provide them a place of refuge. Christ implied that there would be individuals (the sheep) who will provide help to those in need during His discussion about the Sheep & Goat Judgment:

“(32) And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: (33) And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. (34) Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: (35) For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: (36) Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.” (Matthew 25:32-36)

These individuals will not be easy to find, but they will not be impossible to find.

  1. Chicago and San Francisco does not represent the rest of the USA in terms of Antichrist technology. It’s an outlier actually.

  2. Don’t forget about Alaska! Many villages you can’t get to unless you own an aeroplane! And even then there are many times of the year where it’s dicy to fly and even downright impossible!! So they are prepared for long periods of being cut off from society and is like time never moved from what it was a hundred years ago minus generators and solar panels.etc.

    Alaska interior can get pretty damn hot in the summertime.Fairbanks record high is 100F officially and unofficially even higher!!! The SE part is like extreme NW Washington on steroids! Lows struggle much below 32F unless an Artic Blast comes thru.

  3. China won’t easily come under the Antichrist. It is one of the Kings of the East that will wage war on him. News from the north and east will worry the antichrist the book of Daniel says. China and regions in the far east and far off islands won’t easily come under him. Secondly, some African countries won’t come under him as they are already too poor, and are of not much value to him and their commercial systems are largely based on trade and barter system. Same with some remote islands and rural areas. Mostly western countries/europe/north America etc will be more affected along with perhaps middle eastern regions. Asia won’t be much affected. When bible says, “whole world” we must be careful with literally interpreting it, it means “whole known world or roman world” of that time. Even in book of acts it says, “men from all over the world cam to Jerusalem”, does it mean Papuan tribes came to Jerusalem? No.

    • China has a social credit system and mass surveillance of its citizens.

      Remember, Communist China, Russia, North Korea, England, USA, Canada… all of the nations are under the same-Freemasonry controlled by The Black Pope’s The Jesuit Council who control The Vatican City who are bringing-about ”The New World Order.”

      China and Russia will be under the iron-fisted-rule of The Antichrist as well as all of the Asian nations… remote islands and remote-places within The Amazon Rainforest will face escape.

    • Think again! Look up China Uncensored. China is gearing for war with Hong Kong and Tawain but can’t do so due to passing the window of opportunity in ocean tides until March next year. They just weren’t ready but now have been practicing and preparing for ground invasions.

      We have given Tawain lots of arms and money in the tune of 3.something billion dollars from a few weeks ago at 1.something billion dollars.

  4. I appreciate your bringing this to light. So many things with Technology. I just pray that we all wise up and get really smart about not leaving trails of technology that links us to an easy find in those tribulation days. Thank you

    • Thanks for the comment Cynthia. I think people around at that time who want to escape being tracked will have to ditch technology. No cellphone because that’s easily traceable. No Internet because that’s traceable. It will be hard for many who are accustomed to the modern conveniences that technology provides us.

      • I agree, No cell phones or computer. Back to the old ways of communication by speaking face to face! This is all so interesting. Thank you Wayne Croley. You have made the hardest book in my opinion to understand. I’ve been studying eschatology for a few years now. I’m like a sponge soaking it all in!

      • What about using a cybershop internet or throw away emails.etc that expire after 72 hours?

        Also the Antichrist can’t be everywhere at once so will focus on the big cities as highest priority that already have the technology ready. In Chicago they have facial technology (still not used unless it’s an extreme crime) and once you leave Chicago you quickly go into police that still don’t have onboard computers in most cars and poor communication with dispatch.etc.

  5. How about one of the many cays that are in the caribbean? A small fully eqipped sailboat can get you there. There are many uninhabited island all throughout the caribbean.

  6. I’ve been going around looking for places to go to during the tribulation. However, I can’t tell which ones are acceptable, and I fear I would be cast out into the darkness if I get it wrong.

    Creation Concept says that the fleeing and the mountains is symbolic and those that run will die.

    Other people are saying somewhere like Jordan is supernaturally protected.

    Or perhaps Petra is the best place to be.

    • I’m personally not worrying about where to hide. If I die, I die. The Lord determines the number of days that I have on this planet. If I was looking for a place to hide, I would consider a place where I could survive undetected for a prolong period of time.

    • There is no place that you can look for to hide. Either God will choose to protect you, in which case anywhere you are will work, or He’ll lead you to where to go, OR He has chosen to let you die, in which case anywhere you go will not be safe. Read Psalm 27. He hides us, we don’t hide ourselves. Christ gave us the key in Luke 21:36 “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.” Pray that God would show you what is required to be worthy. There is criteria laid out in Scripture. One is found in the letter to the Philadelphians.

      • Do not forget that according to the will and call of God, many of God’s people are actually called to become martyrs, and that knowledge could be given to some way before the event; even now. They will be given an eternal martyr’s crown of glory and honor. Not everyone is called to die of old age with their organs rotting in their bodies…..

          • Wayne I’m very scared. I cry every day. I live in North Greece. I have no idea where to hide, I want yo start looking and preparing from now. I could also go to Georgia, the country. We have a house there in my grandparents name, that noone lives. It’s in Tsalka, Georgia. A very remote place. Do you think I should go there? Or find a place in the mountains here in Greece? I’m extremely scared I want stop crying. I dont even see the point to hide and save myself and one day come out to a world where my family will be lost. I dont know what to do. Please advice me.

          • Hi Anonymous,

            I know you’re afraid because there’s many unknowns in this world right now. However, we are not yet close to a time where you have to make such a major decision. It may be many more years before we see the start of the tribulation and the appearance of the Antichrist. Depending on your age, you may not even be around to see the Antichrist in your lifetime.

            Living in fear of someone who isn’t here yet may be causing you to not enjoy the life you have today. Each day is a gift from God. Each day is an opportunity to serve God. Matthew 6:25-33 tells us to not worry. We can only live a day at a time. Worrying now about an event that may be years in the future won’t enable us to accomplish the things we need done today. If/when the time comes God will give you wisdom about how to proceed. But, in the meantime, relax!

  7. All of the west is with satan. Russia is proving to be the defender of christianity. That is why the west hates her. The west has ignored a heritage of 1800 years of christianity by their EU and US.

    • There’ll probably be a few isolated places where people knowing what is coming will have prepared. I imagine these places will mostly be in remote locations (i.e. forests, mountains, etc).

  8. An interesting topic, to be sure. Many people believe that Petra in Jordan was specifically intended by God to be a refuge for Israeli Jews during the Tribulation, and it would seem that somehow Antichrist and his minions will be unable to get at them there, for reasons that are obscure. Perhaps God prevents Antichrist, or perhaps the Beast reasons that they’re better off left alone, because they are cut off and cannot interfere in his activities.
    Regarding places of safety/security for other believers around the world, there probably won’t be many, and they will be small and localized. I don’t believe there will be large encampments of exiled believers, because the World Government will make it their business to track us down and annihilate us, wherever we can be found, for the simple reason that we refuse their mark and therefor declare ourselves as their enemies. With the modern satellite technology, it will be very simple for those in command to discover large groups of people, camping out in the forests/deserts, etc.
    Needless to say, any place of safety will probably involve being in the wilderness, where chances of discovery by enemies are greatly reduced, for small groups of people. For a time, you will be able to survive off the land, until the seal/trumpet/bowl judgments begin to lay waste to the environment. The idea of running away to a remote island is not recommended, because at some point, we know the seas will turn to blood, and all living things within the seas and oceans will die. That harbingers very bad times for those in places that are completely surrounded by oceans or seas. Not to mention the fact that the Bible references earthquakes all over the world, and as we’ve learned, earthquakes include massive tsunami, as well. Moving to Fiji might seem like a good idea, until a 400 foot wave wipes everything off the island in a matter of minutes.
    Going Underground in the literal sense seems to be the best possible solution. A small family group could exist in caves or underground shelters. To the best of my knowledge, Satellites cannot detect anything underground, and infrared cannot see through rock. It would still involve Christians behaving much like the Jews of WWII who were hidden away by neighbors and friends to protect them from the Nazis. Activity and movement would be extremely restricted, to prevent discovery. Think of Anne Frank’s travails, whole days of laying in one place and not moving, and you will understand.
    Regardless, many will be discovered, and will be executed by the Government. Revelations describes a sea of people who came out of the Great Tribulation, to numerous to count, who washed their robes in the blood of the Lamb. This indicates that they are martyrs. Coming out of the GREAT Tribulation, as most experts agree, means the second half of the Tribulation, which is certainly going to be the point at which the Antichrist is making a determined effort to war against God’s people, wherever they may be found.

  9. Wayne,

    The main problem with your article is that you only mention Israel. What about the rest of the world? How is the antichrist going to track down and find all of his other opponents the world over? There are vast rural areas in America alone where people are “prepping”, stockpiling food, water and weapons where they may be able to ride out the storm. That is, unless America is Babylon the Great and the antichrist is ruling there, that could change things. Even then, it would still be difficult for someone or a group of people who are armed and living off the grid to be found in America.

    I’m not saying that the antichrist won’t be able to track down, find and kill many. These casualties will mostly be coming out of the cities and places like western Europe where there are not many places to hide and the people have no survival mentality, no guns, etc. but there will be a good deal of people the world over who will resist and survive, those who have prepared for it.

      • I read this article and I agree with much of what you say. All I’m suggesting is we can’t only think of tiny Israel during the Antichrist’s reign. Anybody who is fleeing and hiding from Antichrist there will need supernatural protection for sure, but there is a huge, remote world out there. He is not going to get everyone, some will survive and resist. Scripture teaches that many will come to Christ during these latter times, I believe that there will be more real Christians during this time then there is now. Many will be killed but not all, otherwise there would be no great rapture. However, I realize that if the time had not been shortened by God, eventually none would survive.

  10. One possibility that most people do not think about…if America is destroyed in Rev 17/18 then it is possible that America is the driver behind the global govt as stated by bush Sr in 1991..(YouTube bush Sr new world order speech 1991).that would be Lucifers ultimate ace up his sleeve…America will set up the failed Muslim Russian invasion of Israel and when that fails America will come into Israel from the North West with its UN/American”peace keeping” force… After the rest of the world realizes that America set up ww3 on purpose to get their new world order God puts it in their hearts to hate her….After America turns on its heritage and executes millions in FEMA camps, God strikes America into three pieces Rev 16 which I believe will knock our defenses offline long enough for us to get nuked to death by Russia and co….the only place to go is Israel for the post ww3 invasion clean up effort which will put Jews/Christians already in Israel to flee into the mountains for the remainder of the trib…America is the key that no one seems to have figured out…. Just my 2 cents… In the end I hope to meet all of u someday in paradise.. Lord willing…

    • I don’t know about Fema Camps. Revelation says some that are those who are destined for prison ..to prison they will go. But that doesn’t mean necessarily mean Christians . From the looks of it most probably will die either from starvation or be killed. Some people read way too much into outside sources. It’s just best to stick with what the Bible says. America will be among those who turn their backs on Israel and go with the one world Beast System.

  11. So fascinating, what all of you have read, learned, know, practice and teach. I’m just some crazy old retired soldier,making my way the only way I know how…I have so many questions, so many things I’ve been told. So much interferences from those so close to me. I have distractions only the insane can side with, I have also some fellows who wish to take up arms and fight the good fight till the end. I just wish I could figure all of this out some how

  12. He will probably be aware and Revelation 12:15-16 suggests that Satan will seek to destroy those fleeing to the wilderness. However, Revelation 12:16 suggests that the earth will help protect those fleeing from Satan’s efforts to destroy them, so there is an element of protection in the wilderness.

  13. How can we be so sure that the wilderness is safe it could be another trap from the anti-christ to deceive us, I’m pretty sure the anti-christ is aware of this spot too.

    • Aiyana,

      Romans 14:8

      For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord’s.

      What could be any better than this assurance?

      ! Corinthians 15:55

      55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?

      Acts 7:59-60

      While they were stoning him, Stephen appealed, “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.” 60 Falling on his knees, he cried out in a loud voice, “Lord, do not hold this sin against them.” And when he had said this, he fell asleep.

      Take courage my Sister!

  14. This is so scary I don’t know how to fight what will I do if some fearless lion just came out of nowhere?

    • Aiyana? If your saved by the blood of Jesus Christ why do you want to even be here during the most horrific time ever be since the beginning of history? Do you really know how bad it’s actually going to be?? The book of Revelation says it all .

  15. As I live in America, there are in fact two places I have in mind where I plan to hide from the Antichrist. They are either the Florida Everglades, or the tropical rainforests of Costa Rica.

    • Rainforest? I don’t think many will make it through the time of Jacob’s Trouble. Where would you run and hide to? Most will be either hunted down and killed or imprisoned . Those passages are for the Jewish people… “and pray that your flight does not take place on the Sabbath”. Are we not supposed to be looking for the “blessed hope”?..not antichrist? JUst because people like Steve Quayle says to prep? We as Christians will not have to stockpile weapons /food etc. Those that are pushing that are making tons of money off gullible people. NO! ..We are to wait for His Son from heaven” . And that does not mean After the Tribulation.

    • Traveler? Where does it say in the Bible that a Christian must flee from Antichrist? That is for the Jewish ( yet to be those who turn to Christ during the Tribulation) *Remnant We are to wait for His SON from heaven NOT_ Antichrist!

  16. Daniel 7 seems to indicate that Antichrist’s sphere of influence will cover the entire planet, so I don’t think any country will oppose him initially (perhaps latter on in his reign there might be some that do).

  17. For all of history since the death of Christ era there has been many attempts at an *Antichrist* as if the system was going thru a *test drive* but humanity and technology wasn’t there yet for a full global system to really get anywhere.

    All we need now is a world wide disaster that makes people *beg* for a leader to solve all their issues and he will save the day and given all sorts of world peace medals thru false pretense.

  18. Will there be any countries that oppose it? I know Brazil opposes a lot of spying programs and I found out recently they are not allowing licenses to companies that are working with the NSA *Microsoft/Google.etc* that have back door deals.

    Don’t forget November 13th/14th is the Grid X drill and at the very least expect some *bugs* as our infrastructure has not been touched for over 50 years other then some spit and polish by individual power companies.

  19. Great website- well done! I am currently preparing a DVD on the End Times (and the Vatican involvement) that will serve as a warning to those who will be left behind. The DVD is aimed at those who are non-believers, and clearly maps out the signs that we are approaching very “end of the age.”

    I may even make this a KickStarter project just to raise the necessary funding to make it happen. There are two DVDs involved; one is to map out the road to the end, and the second is a survivors guide. As a former soldier and now a licensed investigator, there are lots of tricks in my trade that you can use to stay hidden, avoid detection, and survive comfortably.
    You feedback is most welcome.

    • Hi Sam.. Can I buy a copy of the two videos you are making?. Also I would like to help in any way I can.. I would be honored to help non believers find the Truth Of Jesus.. I can donate time or help fund your efforts..please email.. Thank You Joseph

    • Hi Sam, I would like to buy a copy of the two videos your making.. I would also be honored to help you get the word out in any way I can. Please email. Thank You.. Joseph

  20. I fully understand the meaning of the term (in fact I have written an article on the nuances of the term). However, I use the term “Antichrist” because I try to relate to people. For instance, I don’t really care to use the term “tribulation” to describe the future seven year period (I rather use the term “seventieth week of Daniel”) but I often resort to using the term because people are so used to hearing the term “tribulation”. Similarly, I use the term “Antichrist” instead of the term “beast from the abyss” because people are so used to seeing the term “Antichrist”.

  21. The phrase “the antichrist” is NOT in the bible. Do a search yourself.

    We have:

    “antichrist” and “antichrists” I John 2:18
    “antichrist” I John 2:22
    “the spirit of antichrist” I John 4:3
    “an antichrist” 2 John 1:7

    The word “antichrist” does not EVER refer to a single individual to arise in the end times.

    The Beast, on the other hand, appears to be a single individual, but
    still there are mention of many different beasts in prophetic scriptures.

    So when speaking of the individuals to appear in the end times, we have the Beast and the False Prophet who are mentioned together. Never do the scriptures refer to “the antichrist” with either of
    these entities. These points are very clear from scripture and we
    should have all realized this by now. Let me suggest that using the
    term “the antichrist” simply confuses people and distracts
    from what the scriptures say about prophecy.

    Let’s not show ignorance regarding this any longer. The beast is the beast. The False Prophet is the false prophet. But there are many antichrists.

    • John’s first epistle says you know antichrist will come but there are many antichrists paraphrasing. saying “antichrist” like this is same as saying THE antichrist. the beast is the big antichrist.

  22. For the mesmerized world to be impressed with the anti -christ, a wondrous time of peace and stability has to befall the planet. I think we will see him before all the chaos.  He will `correct` the chaos that is presently about.  Just think if there is a system in place that no one can steal, kill or do warfare via RFID `s -this world will be tranquil? Untill such time the system netted the sheeple?

  23. I don’t see Y2K or 2012 referenced in Jeremiah either, but the onus will be on me to explain why. I’ll attempt to do that in these series of articles.

  24. I don’t think that we need to get into a whole long dissertation on our disparate beliefs here.  I simply don’t read the Scriptures the same way you do.  For instance the rumor thing.  I don’t see that defined in Scripture as being the Y2K thing or the 2012 thing.  I’m sure you have spent as much time coming to your own conclusions as I have, (several decades of research) and no two people are ever going to agree on everything no matter who they are.  I wish you the best in your move and hope things work out for you.  As for fleeing Babylon, it is not that a lot of us don’t understand the directive, but we are not being called by God to do so at this point. (And not everyone is convinced Babylon is America, although I do agree with you on that point at this time until I see differently.) So until God calls us in His timing, (and it may not be His will that we escape either) we are not going to let anyone push us into going out of irrational fear when it is not God’s plan for us.  Disobedience could cause us more problems than not. Remember, God has different strokes for different folks.

  25. I’m more than open to re-evaluating my position if scripture agrees with the interpretation.  I just wonder how you account for the antichrist and the 10 kings rising up together, when the word of God makes specific distinctions between the timing of their rise? Daniel indicates that the 10 horns rise at a time before the “little horn” rises. Why would God make such a distinction if they , the 10 kings and the “little horn” both rise up together?

    Also how do you account for 3 of the 10 kings being put down when the “little horn” arises in your end-time view? And at the same time reconciling the fact that the 10 kings are the ones who hate Babylon and destroy? So I guess I would need your explanation of when do you see Babylon being destroyed in your end-time view as well?

    Yes. I agree that the antichrist isn’t revealed until the midpoint of the tribulation. But I do see the antichrist working behind the scenes during the first half of the tribulation. God describes the antichrist as as being a deceitful worker who will use flatteries and promises of peace at the onset of his world-wide quest for total domination. I believe he is the rider on the horse that is seen when the first seal is broken.

    As for the timing of my move from Babylon, God hasn’t revealed it to me yet. There are still 2 major signs that have to be fulfilled before the 10 kings strike Babylon. The earthquake sign and the rumor sign. So when those 2 signs are fulfilled it will definitely be time to flee this country. Both signs are on the immediate horizon, particularly the rumor sign. That sign will see it’s fulfillment next year. I also suspect that the earthquake is coming very soon as well. God is sending earthquakes to the Midwest for a reason. Nothing happens by chance or coincidence. The recent earthquakes that have been going on in Oklahoma are wake up calls for that region that something is brewing. The New Madrid fault will produce the coming earthquake and it will be devastating. So when you see that happen, know that the time to flee Babylon is near.

    • What? Do u know that Babylon the Great is America? That’s incredible because most Christians floor me when they deny it…Glad to see ur eyes are open.

      • Frankie, there’s going to be a great out pouring of his spirit coming, but not to any big place that you can think of. There’s going to be a great prayer revival coming to The Pacific Rim. God’s going to initiate it. Create it. Feed it. Sustain it. This is a revival that will not end. You will not be able to be in the area and not be affected by it. Such will be the prayers and the potency that miracles not yet seen will happen. It’s the little no-bodies that will come to their churches telling of their miracles, and the miracle working God showing up at their churches, to confirm with signs following. The intensity of group gatherings and individuals, will circle their wagons, and a great spiritual battle will begin. Places to hide will become invisible to the enemy. But the miracles and the visions of Heaven will be outstanding. Many will risk life and limb, traveling amongst islands and territories to preach the gospel and spread the Good News. The heavens will open up, and new dimensions of the spirit will happen. This will catapult whatever the Antichrist will try to do into catastrophe. There will be a new sound from heaven, and those who hear it, will understand that it comes from under the altar in heaven where the martyrs are. This is going to be a finale, against all previous ideas and traditions of men. The sustained miracles and visions of heaven will be unparalleled in time and space. (This is the area where safety would be. )

    • Revelations describes two Babylon’s, Babylon the Great which is destroyed, and Mystery Babylon, which is clearly some kind of religion. In the Left Behind books, it is the actual worship of the Beast, and in the Christ Clone Trilogy, it is more of an amalgamation of New Age religions and cults (let us not forget, Satan doesn’t care who we worship, as long as it isn’t Jesus).
      I do believe that the evidence and descriptions of Babylon the Great in Revelations point to the USA as being Babylon. It says that the merchants of the world will weep at Babylon’s destruction, which makes sense, since the USA is by far the greatest consumer of the world’s goods, and our literal destruction would certainly lay waste to the economies of many nations. It is also clear that the destruction within an hour is at God’s Hand. Certainly that could mean God used Russia or China to assault us with nuclear weapons, but I believe it will be something that is clearly not the results of man’s own actions. It could be the result of massive earthquakes, or strikes from celestial bodies, as depicted in the Christ Clone Trilogy (the 3 asteroids striking the earth, one of which demolishes a large portion of North and South America, as it passes through our atmosphere).
      Recently, I had noticed remarks by scientists over concerns with Solar Storms. Apparently, the earth is overdue by 100 years for a massive EMP storm caused by the Sun. Imagine what a solar-induced EMP would do to whatever side of the Earth was facing the sun when it cut loose. All our modern technology would be toast, in a matter of moments. No more cars, trains, airplanes, computers, smartphones, etc, etc, et al.
      If the USA were hit by a solar-scale EMP, it would throw us back to stone age conditions, instantly. Sure, it wouldn’t harm people, except for those who happened to be on a plane or similar circumstances, but we would instantly have 300 million people who have no way to survive, feed themselves, grow their own food, or anything. Riots in all the big cities, within a week, millions dead of starvation, murder and disease within a week or two. Certainly a just reward for a nation who abandoned “One Nation, Under God” many years ago. As a noted evangelist once said “If God doesn’t do something about America soon, He will owe Sodom and Gomorrah and apology…”
      Whatever is coming, it will be bad, and it will clearly not be the results of the actions of humanity, so I doubt if we will be nuked by Russia or North Korea.
      In many ways, I wonder if this wouldn’t be a good thing for us, as Americans. Let’s face it, if our nation and economy are wiped out, we will be of no use to the rest of the world, so maybe we will be in less danger of Antichrist and his supporters coming after Christians here, as they will in the rest of the world…
      Just my thoughts on the subject.

    • I hope this gets to you… You said, a place where one can hide…In the near future, there will be places where you can go not to escape but become more committed than you ever have been.,The Ring of Fire around the Pacific Rim will become an intense area of revival that will not quit until God has chosen to end it. Not the big cities or areas that you could assume daily living. and not to some ones denomination, either. This will be an act of God. And nobody gets to claim it for themselves. The intensity of the prayers will manifest the miracles described in the Book of Acts and beyond. Get ready for a massive move amongst little no-bodies, who were touched by God and then seen a manifestation of his promises to all. The bewildering thing about it will be that it will start amongst Native Americans. But the beauty and the safety you’re asking for will come from their prayers. This is a revival that many beforehand had seen in visions and dreams. And it’s fulfillment will not quit until He comes back. So when your tired of God, or the same-old, same- old sermons are, being preached and going nowhere, or that’s white mans’ religion, is being heard, this will change every tune in everyone’s heart. The massive amount and quality of those in prayer will be the protection and the dynamo of the areas involved. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and He shall bring it to pass. And what that is brought to pass will allow those faithful to interpret the signs of the times and the stages in Heaven about to occur. We’re on the cusp of the finale wave of God’s majesty to His people. Many will die, but many will find God in the midst of wars and rumors of wars. When asking for a place to hide,you are really asking for a where God’s spirit can come down. Jn

      • Why did god create such a F’ed up nation of corporate elites kicking out competition and disguising it all as “hyper capitalism”? and the other crowd wants a nanny panny police state where YOU are the enemy!

        • The Bible indicates that the Devil currently has major influence over what transpires in this world. In fact, 2 Corinthians 4:4 refers to him as the “god of this world”. Given this, the evils of this world should be attributed to the Devil.

  26. face book privet msg. the reason i want to hear your take on it is because im still new at been saved so i need feed back incase you found some thing i missed i dont want to fall for b.s and i trust your understanding of the bible more then mine, Thanks again. 

  27. I guess I was puzzled by your explanation, as I don’t perceive the Scriptures as outlining it that way.  I see the ten horns and the beast getting their power at the same time, but they defer their power to the beast.  The way I understand, it is at some point after this that they destroy Babylon.  I don’t see it happening that they destroy Babylon then come to power.  I see them coming to power, then at the right time, destroying Babylon.  And I don’t see antichrist coming to power until the middle of the 70th week of Daniel.  He may be around, but he doesn’t take over in power until the midpoint of the week.  His reign is only 1260 days, the second half.  But naturally everyone is entitled to their own view.  While I agree that there is a time when those who are left are to flee Babylon and go to Jerusalem, I see it as happening at a different time than you.  But you must do what you feel is correct.  Let us know how that goes.  When is your target date for moving?

  28. I’m not sure how long it will take to get the series articles completed. There are so many verses and chapters to account for. I wouldn’t be surprised if there are more than 50 lengthy articles about Ezekiel 38 & Ezekiel 39, Babylon the Great, etc when the series of articles is finally complete.

  29. I’ll be looking forward to it. I keep seeing a link to the Gog and Magog invasion with the destruction of Babylon the great. Just using my natural observation from world events as we know them today, I can see how it is related.

    1) I firmly believe Babylon is America and right now this country is the only country that supports Israel. Thus we are a major (carnal/physical) deterrent to thwarting any attempts by foreign nations to over-run Israel like the Gog invasion will do.

    2) But when Babylon is destroyed by the 10 kings, who will be led by Russia, the lone super power of the world will be wiped off the map instantly.

    “How is the hammer of the whole earth cut asunder and broken! how is Babylon become a desolation among the nations!” Jeremiah 50:23

    With the hammer of the earth being taken out of the way, there will be no opposition for the armies of the north to finally attempt to over-run Israel.

    3) Russia is getting real antsy now a days and is letting the world know that they are fed up with America. With Putin coming back into power, I believe he will take the lead in hatching the plot to destroy Babylon.
    Putin hates the west and deep down in his soul he wants to annihilate America. You can see it in his eyes. It’s extremely obvious to me.

    4) Ezekiel 38:13 and Ezekiel 39:6 pop out to me. God is saying something here that relates to other nations who are in the background of this invasion. If anybody has any revelations about who those countries are in Ezekiel 38:13 and who the coastlands appear to be in Ezekiel 39:6, please share.

    5) Ezekiel 39:8 appears to speaking about the day of the LORD to me. Many nations will now that God exists when this invasion is defeated by God super-naturally. Thus I see it tied up with the sneak attack on Mystery Babylon and ultimately tied up in the first 4 seals of revelation. The day of the Lord starts with blackness, darkness, gloominess, and destruction. It starts with war! The prophets all make that clear. It’s sudden destruction and it will come upon all the world, beginning with the annihilation of Mystery Babylon.

    The prophet Zephaniah describes the day of the Lord and the sudden destruction that accompanies it perfectly

    “14The great day of the LORD is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the LORD: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly. 15That day is
    a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and
    desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick
    16A day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities, and against the high towers.
    I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men,
    because they have sinned against the LORD: and their blood shall be
    poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung.
    their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of
    the LORD’S wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of
    his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that
    dwell in the land.” Zephaniah 1:14-18

    The destruction that comes against the fenced cities and the high towers sound like what will take place when Babylon is destroyed.

    “Shout against her round about: she hath given her hand: her foundations are fallen, her walls are thrown down: for it is the vengeance of the LORD: take vengeance upon her; as she hath done, do unto her.” Jeremiah 50:15


    “Thus saith the LORD of hosts; The broad walls of Babylon shall be
    utterly broken, and her high gates shall be burned with fire; and the
    people shall labour in vain, and the folk in the fire, and they shall be
    weary.” Jeremiah 51:58

    The word of God paints one complete picture and it the beginning of the day of the Lord starts with the total destruction of Babylon the great.

  30. Am I correct in understanding that you feel Babylon’s annihilation will come before the 7 years begin?  I get that from what you wrote. ” fall of Babylon and thus the beginning of the day of the LORD.  Which is the end of this age, the last 7 years!”  If that is so, then do you see the antichrist coming to power before the 7 years begin?  Because he would have to come to power with the 10 before then in that case, as it is this group which destroy Babylon. Revelation 17:12-13, 16 “And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received
    no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.
    These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the
    whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh,
    and burn her with fire.” Possibly I read wrongly what you wrote.  I’m just looking for clarification. 

    • Hello. I wanted to ask how the Jewish people will know when to flee to safety. I see that “note to the reader” when you see the abomination of desolation spoken of by the prophet Daniel … i guess what i’m trying to ask is since they do not read the New Testament ..how are they going to see that “notation”? Unless ..they read Daniel and it tells them there. But i was under the impression that that certain notation was for them. Will Christians perhaps who are alive and go against Antichrist let them know? Any answers or thoughts on this would be appreciated .

      • The entire New Testament was written for Christians, including the Olivet Discourse. Jesus was not talking to unbelieving Jews there, He was talking to His followers – believers – which includes us as well as the apostles. That note was for our benefit to understand what is happening by checking back in Daniel to see what occurred before and what will occur again and what we should expect and watch for. To reiterate, that passage is there for the information of believers, not unbelieving Jews. There are Christians in Israel and they will be able to tell them to flee. It will be up to us everywhere else to let the Jews know what is going on, plus I think the circumstances themselves will dictate that running is the best option.

        • Where will Jewish people hide and flee to who happen to be in America or other parts of the world during the Tribulation. There is no mention of where . Unless i’m missing something . Those who turn to the Lord during this time and are Jewish believers will they be killed as i see no mention but only those who are Israel /Judea.

          • Ariel, the jews in Israel during the tribulation hour will flee to the mountains where the Holy Spirit will keep them safe. Jesus said, regarding his church (saved) that Revelation 3:10 Because you have kept My command to endure with patience, I will also keep you from the hour of testing that is about to come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth……..The “Believers/Saved/The church age” who are all the same will be Raptured, BEFORE the tribulation starts.

  31. Just a heads up, I plan on addressing the placement the fulfillment of those verses you mentioned (Ezekiel 39:13-15 and Jeremiah 50:4-5) in the series of articles I’m working on concerning Ezekiel 38 & Ezekiel 39.

    • Wayne? That question was put to you. Where do you suppose the Jewish remnant will flee to who are not in Judea but are in other parts of the world such as America ( i don’t see America personally in Bible prophecy) and other parts of the world? What about those who are too poor to hop an plane and go to Judea? There has got to be somewhere _ were they can hide also? Your thoughts please. 🙂 I am not talking about Christians here , but those who are will be alive during Antichrist’s reign and who will come to Christ.(Jewish Remnant (and possibly some of the ungodly I do not believe Christians will be here and will continue to believe that based on the scriptures. Keeping with scriptures… that those promises were made to thee Church. And also keeping in mind that the vision that Paul had which was the a mystery and revealed by Paul himself to the early church and consequently give to us the body of believers.

      • I think people who are subject to Antichrist’s persecutions will probably have to find their own hiding places. However, I think some people will assist the Antichrist’s enemies in hiding based on what Christ says to the sheep in the sheep and goat judgment in Matthew 25. Perhaps similar to people who helped Jews hide during the Holocaust of World War 2.

  32. Yeah you have to flee Israel all together when the AOD happens. Right when a person witnesses the event, they are to run straight for the mountains. If one were to hesitate for even a split second they will be captured and made supreme examples of what is about to take place on the earth.

    I believe the reason why God tells His people to go to Israel after the fall of Babylon is because of the wilderness deliverance. God gives specific instructions for a reason. And God has continually placed it on my heart that my destiny is in Israel. So i’m just going to follow His commands.

    On a side note there appears to be something interesting in Ezekiel 39.

    “13Yea, all the people of the land shall bury them; and it shall be to them a renown the day that I shall be glorified, saith the Lord GOD.
    they shall sever out men of continual employment, passing through the
    land to bury with the passengers those that remain upon
    the face of the
    earth, to cleanse it: after the end of seven months shall they search. 15And the passengers that pass through the land, when any seeth a man’s bone, then shall he set up a sign by it, till the buriers have buried it in the valley of Hamongog.”

    When Gog is destroyed on the mountains of Israel, which I believe will coincide with the fall of Babylon and which will be wrapped up in the first 4 seal judgments of Revelation 6, men are separated for the continual task of burying the bones of all those who died in the invasion. The “passengers those that remain upon the face of the earth” may be those who have fled to Israel. Just an interesting observation I believe. I also see that the search doesn’t start until 7 months after the invasion. So there will be plenty of time for those who are still alive and are seeking the Lord to go to Israel.

    Jeremiah 50:4-5 says that the whole house of Israel will seek the Lord after the fall of Babylon

    those days, and in that time, saith the LORD, the children of Israel
    shall come, they and the children of Judah together, going and weeping:
    they shall go, and seek the LORD their God.
    5They shall ask the way to Zion with their faces thitherward, saying, Come, and let us join ourselves to the LORD in a perpetual covenant that shall not be forgotten.”

    So the whole climate of the world will be changed once the day of the LORD starts. God is going to make a way for His people to go to Israel and receive salvation. If there is no rapture the only a place of safety in the last days will be the wilderness deliverance of Revelation 12. And I believe that the only way to be part of that deliverance is to be in close proximity to Israel, seeing that the LORD Jesus Christ gives specific instructions for where to flee to when the event, the AOD that leads to the deliverance, happens.


  33. Thank you for reading, commenting, and the prayers!

    One thing which I did not mention in the article, but I’ll bring up now is that Bible commentators I read think that Luke 21:21 contains a warning to depart out of Jerusalem when the abomination of desolation is established/when the city of Jerusalem is compassed with armies (where it says “let them which are in the midst of it”).

    Luk 21:20  And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh. 
    Luk 21:21  Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto. 

  34. Yes, I watched the whole thing the day you sent it to me (November 8) and I wrote a reply immediately afterwards. My Gmail account shows I sent a reply (perhaps it ended up in your Junk Mail for some reason). If you like I can try to send the reply again.

    • Reportedly, a few tropical island countries may be good refuge places also during the Great Tribulation, such as Fiji, Palau, Tuvalu, and a few other places. Others that look to me like great places of refuge include the Florida Everglades, the tropical forests of Brazil and Peru, possibly the highlands of Puerto Rico, and the tropical forests of Costa Rica.
