Thanks for stopping by brother stair. I have not heard of you but a few quick searches on the internet reveals a LOT.
There are some things that "cult" leaders, such as yourself, do that are admirable. More Christians ought to live more simple lives supporting each other. But the things I've been reading are quite disturbing.
Since they're just things I read, though, I'll simply bring up what I know from your posting here.
1. You claim to be a prophet.
2. You believe you know when the end times are.
3. "Jesus is the truth,the life and the only way,Glory to God."

1. I am immediately hesitant when ANYONE claims to be a prophet. The REAL prophets of the bible did not go around calling themselves such things so boastfully... And though I may be wrong about this, I personally believe the time of true prophesying is over and has long been over. The Jehovah's witnesses... they started an entire religion based on prophecy that never came to pass. From what I have been reading, you have prophesied about the end times for a long time now... about Reagan, nuclear war, and more... all things that have not happened.
There is a real danger in "prophecy." People set themselves up to be something of a magic 8 ball that they shake up to get answers. I'm going to tell you something that is complete fact... Much of what you wish to prophesy, God does NOT want you to actually know. We don't know the future, and that is okay... and it is how God wants things to be.
You claim that "this is the last generation..."
Have you been reading your scriptures or any of history? People have been making that claim since the time Jesus walked the earth 2,000 years ago. EVERY, and I mean EVERY generation since then has had people like you claiming it was the last generation. We need to STOP making "predictions" like that. They are foolish, not from God, and serve no purpose other than to coerce people by means of fear.
I do believe we are in "the end times" right now... I truly believe that. But, the "end times" may last another 50 years or more. Nobody knows. God's time is not like ours and we'll never understand how that all works... and, that's okay.
The only reason I leave up such a discussion as this is because the end times are indeed real and we need to be aware of what's going on and what is to come. We do not need forecasts of what's going to happen when. God wants us to live by faith in such matters. But, He still wants us to live Godly lives every day.
The "end" may happen tomorrow... or it might happen 77 years from now. I don't know and don't need to know. You can be like all the others and keep making those claims but, they're based on very little true wisdom and I dare say, not inspired by God.
Scientists today can create an entire skeleton of some new creature based on one single bone they find. I find this to be nonsense... But, they do it... They have a logic to it that makes sense to them... but, it is flawed and missing pieces.
The same goes for prophesying about the end times. We have but little pieces of info that don't all make a ton of sense. We can have an idea of what it's all going to look like but we'll never come anywhere close to having an actual timeline of events or dates.
I appreciate all that preach the gospel of Christ... but anyone that focuses their efforts on the end times... I must wonder what their motives are... Is it to win hearts for Christ? Or to scare people into making drastic changes that, well, might include sending you money.

2. hmm, I think I just covered that along with #1...

3. Indeed. Jesus is THE ONLY WAY...... There is no argument to that. :)

I apologize if any of this seems harsh... I kind of doubt this will be read anyway... Sorry I did not notice this sooner.
I didn't want to simply delete the message but I felt the whole topic was worth discussing.
There are a lot of preachers out there today that are manipulative. Some today, like this one, preach fear into people... others preach ALL happiness... peace and love...
BOTH things are somewhat essential in a Christian's life. You need to learn peace, love, happiness... you also need to learn the truth about heaven and hell and the consequences of sin.
But when a preacher sticks to ONE thing, ignores the others... you can usually bet there are hidden motives there somewhere. People make a living... make money by "leading" you in these ways.
Be warned... there are many false prophets out there today.
Prophecy was written in the bible... much of it is still to come. I honestly believe that the time of prophesying is over, as I said before. There's no need for it... none. We have a full enough view of what God wants from us. Anyone that comes in and tries to preach to you something that is not written about in the bible IS a false prophet.

I removed the link to their website. For starters, people posting to a guestbook JUST to draw people to their site not because of any interest in this one at all is just not something that I appreciate.
Also, like many other "prophets" out there, they're looking for money. I don't want to encourage people to to go there, but it would be easy enough to look the ministry up if you still want to go there.
This person claims that God has told him that this is the last generation? For starters there, which one? We have new generations starting all the time. But also, EVERY, and I mean every generation since Christ walked the earth though their generation was the last.
Actual bible prophecy is something very, very much worth reading and studying. But, I encourage people to spend WAY more time studying God's word themselves rather than trying to follow self-proclaimed prophets.

Will this be the last generation? It could be... but, there is still a LOT that needs to happen that hasn't yet.
Predicting when Jesus will return is literally a waste of time. Jesus doesn't know... That's clear in the bible. And God doesn't want us to know because He doesn't want us trying to "get ready" at the last minute. He wants us to be ready ALWAYS because His return will come like a thief in the night. We're not to be caught unaware.
But as far as preparing goes, the bible has ALL the info we need.
Being prepared for when Christ returns has NOTHING to do with knowing when He'll show up, or even being 100% certain of the signs(though, they are good to learn.) Being ready for Chist's return is about us living the Godly lives that God wants us to...
It's like having a clean house when company comes. If you enjoy visitors, it's best to have the place clean all the time because you never know when someone could stop by.
or the whole thief in the night illustration. A thief doesn't announce that he's going to stop by Saturday ad 9 PM... (unless you're watching Home Alone)
It will be unexpected. Nothing you do, nothing you can learn will help you get the timing right to be prepared in that way. God wants us to always be ready.
Someone going around telling you WHEN Jesus might come back doesn't actually help you.

Again... studying end times can be worthwhile as, people WILL be(and already are) led astray because they don't know God's word well.
Well meaning Christians will be and already are susceptible to false teachings.

Lots more I could say here... but, to sum it up, I really don't think anyone should be out there trying to tell people that Jesus is returning within a certain time frame.
It's not info God really wants us to have and, He is not revealing that info.
Our instructions are to simply "be ready."
so, we prepare and we wait.
He may come tonight... He may return 50 years from now. We cannot do any more than guess or speculate. And that is how it is meant to be.
Actual bible prophecies have been fulfilled here and there for many, many years now... but many are still to be fulfilled.

Another sort of "warning" or thought here is that... many people spend ALL their time trying to learn prophecy, following tv and internet preachers, and not enough time learning what God actually wants for us, how He wants us to live right here and now.
Lots of thoughts. Study God's word and test everything.
