In light of Bible prophecy what might we expect to see in 2013? Before I answer that question let me get something straight. I am not a prophet, I do not say “thus saith the Lord,” and I do not make predictions. What I do is look at various pieces of news and trends and integrate them with Bible prophecy, with Bible prophecy being the final authority. Based on those integrations I come up with scenarios for things that MAY come about.
For example based on integrating a lot of data and Bible prophecy I came to the conclusion that the 70th week may have started in 2009, and if so the most likely date for WWIII to start would have been 11/23/12, I also stated that it could start as late as 4/22/13.
Because WWIII did not start on 11/23/12 I have been called a “false prophet” and a “Harold Camping,” etc. To reiterate I did not say WWIII would start on 11/23, I said if certain things were true, it was the most likely date I saw—not it will start on 11/23. Some for various reasons cannot accept this distinction. This would be like someone saying if water reaches 212 degrees it will boil, and then the water does not boil because it did not reach 212 degrees, so you call them a false scientist. How absurd.
So let me plainly state my forecast for 2013 is not a “prophecy,” I am not saying “thus saith the Lord.” I am giving you my opinion of what may transpire in 2013 based on integrating Bible prophecy research and current news events. What I propose may not come to pass, and frankly I hope it doesn’t.
So why tell you if it may not come to pass? Because some of the things that I am going to talk about will eventually happen, and you need to be prepared for them, whenever they do occur. I am not trying to be the one who figures everything out--all I am trying to do is to help wake people up to the prophetic times in which we live so that they can prepare for what lies ahead.
So if the things I am about to propose do not come to pass and you are going to call me names and scoff at what I am going to put forth then I guess I will have to remember what Jesus said “Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.” Mt 5:11.
So if you can understand the words “assumption,” “if,” and “may;” here is my 2013 Prophecy Forecast. Note: This forecast is based on the assumption that the 70th week started on 11/10/2009. This forecast is not a “prophecy” nor is it “thus saith the Lord.”
1. WWIII (Seal 2) between now and 4/22/13, most likely date to watch for is 1/21/13. WWIII may include terrorist actions against American cities.
2. Worldwide financial collapse (Seal 3) just after WWIII breaks out.
3. Pandemic (Seal 4) just after the worldwide financial collapse.
4. 4/22/13 –midway point—antichrist takes over the world, mark of the beast worldwide financial system initiated.
5. Persecution of Jews and Christians (Seal 5)
6. 2013-2015 in alignment with a fall feast--Great Geophysical event (Seal 6) includes worldwide earthquake, sun darkened, moon to blood—indicative of a pole shift. Also includes appearing of the Lord in the sky and the rapture.
That is my prophecy forecast based on the assumption that the 70th week began on 11/10/2009 and the Second Coming will be in 2016. If those assumptions are not true then the things above will not happen this year, but will happen in a future year. For example if the Second Coming will be in 2017 then these things will happen in 2014, if in 2018 then in 2015, etc.
As I have said many times before the important matter is not when they will occur, but are you prepared now, for they could occur in the near future? Think about it.
Besides the things that I have mentioned above let me comment on a few other things that we may see transpire in 2013 regardless of if the above things occur or not.
The Economy—let me boil it down; more spending, more debt, more printing of money, and more taxes, not to mention several other factors. To me that adds up to a weakening of the dollar and inflation—you can figure the rest. I ran across some pertinent info in this regards that I highly reccomend and they both offer strategies for asset positioning as well.

Society—Continued descent of moral decay leading to greater sinfulness in the nation as a whole. As many have warned darkness is arising (see the articles below). Expect civil unrest to increase along with greater acts of violence. Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people. Prov 14:34

Earth—Big earthquakes are most likely to remain on the upswing, extreme and weird weather events increasing. I have also been hearing chatter of the distinct possibility of the sun unleashing violent storms our way and a “coastal event.”
Internet—I believe the days of the internet as we know it are limited—may see greater regulation in the near future. Too much unbridled truth running about, and they know “the truth can set you free.”
UFOs—I believe full UFO disclosure is imminent, that is that they exist, not the disclosure that they are demons. Look for this to precipitate “the Great Falling Away” talked about in scripture.
Middle East—Hotbed of hatred and conflict. Any number of small incidents could start WWIII.
Will 2013 be the year the Seals are opened? If 2016 is the year of the Second Coming then yes they will--time will tell. At the very least I think 2013 will be a year of greater financial diifficulties, civil unrest, earth changes and spiritual decline. I believe judgment is due for America, so does Carlos at Chozeh and Nabiy who has written a great article about interlocking time patterns that have dire implications for the USA in 2013. http://nabiy4america.wordpress.com/2012/12/31/dire-prophetic-implications-for-america-in-the-year-2013/
