Best’s Intelligence Review Hour For 6-25-2021 – This, That, and Other Things

On Night Shadows Tonight 6-25-2021 @ 7:00 PM CT

Events are now coming faster and faster as we near 9th of Av and Tu B’Av, and soon after FEAST OF TRUMPETS. Israel is about to enter Daniel’s 70th week, a time of trouble and sorrow for them and also for the world. 2021 appears to be the year it all begins, and proofs are mounting as we watch for war in the Middle East. With Israel ramping up its attacks upon her enemies they may get a response not desired per Isaiah 17 and Daniel 8. Then we have Russia guarding their interests and recently told the UK that if they continued their provocations Russia would sink their ships. In response, it appears NATO may bring in a series of ships into the Black Sea to test Putin’s resolve, a HUGE MISTAKE for the West. The 3 weeks of sorrow for Israel begins June 27 and runs to July 18th so this is a big watch time for the Church and much more…




One of the key signs of the end days is the concept of a woman in travail as she brings forth her baby. It is a key point to remember, as the RING OF FIRE ECLIPSE on June 10th, 2021 is a BOTH A BIRTH SIGN AND WEDDING SIGN, pointing directly to Tu B’Av and the number 411. But I am getting ahead of myself. Let’s go back to Israel’s birth and what it meant for the world:

Isaiah 66:7-9

Before she travailed, she brought forth; before her pain came, she was delivered of a man child.

Who hath heard such a thing? who hath seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? or shall a nation be born at once? for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children.

Shall I bring to the birth, and not cause to bring forth? saith the Lord: shall I cause to bring forth, and shut the womb? saith thy God.

This is one of those loaded verses that appear to be applied in two different ways, Israel and the Church and we will be going back to this in this short series several times.

I will concentrate on the Church and the man-child. It appears to refer to Revelation 12 and the STAR SIGN, in which VIRGO the woman GIVE BIRTH to a man-child – that ties Jesus Christ to His BRIDE THE CHURCH, also referred to as MAN (Kings and Priests). Remember that the Conception Comet is what gave this sign validity on September 23rd, 2017.

Revelation 12:1-2 and 12:5

12 And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:

And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.

And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.

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.

The cosmic woman VIRGO obviously represents ISRAEL. Israel was born in ONE DAY, and it made headline news all over the world. Can a NATION be born in ONE DAY? Who has heard of such a thing? It really was a marvel to see a nation, long gone in the ashes of history since AD 70!! In Psalm 49, we get some clues as to how important this rebirth was. Remember Israel is the time piece of God for the whole world:

 Psalm 49

49 Hear this, all ye people; give ear, all ye inhabitants of the world:

Both low and high, rich and poor, together.

My mouth shall speak of wisdom; and the meditation of my heart shall be of understanding.

4I will incline mine ear to a parable: I will open my dark saying upon the harp.

What parable is God speaking of? What is this DARK SAYING? What is this mystery? None other than the rebirth of Israel that Jesus Christ told us all about in the “parable of the Fig Tree”, that DARK SAYING that even now few realize how important all of this is:

So, what does DARK SAYING mean:


חִידָה  – chı̂ydâh – khee-daw’

From H2330; a puzzle; hence a trick, conundrum, sententious maxim: – dark saying (sentence, speech), hard question, proverb, riddle.

The root:


חוּד – chûd – khood

A primitive root; properly to tie a knot, that is, (figuratively) to propound a riddle: – put forth.

Jesus Christ was the one who put forth THE RIDDLE:

Matthew 24:32-33

32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:

33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.

Please remember that the RETURN is in two very distinct parts – the taking of the Bride and then the return to Earth to take possession of Earth.



The evidence is very strong that these two events are 7 years apart, because of the Lord’s constant referral to the Oriental Wedding Customs of a SEVEN DAY CELEBRATION. More on that later.

So, we know the FIG TREE is Israel, and when Israel was born AS A NATION (can a nation be born in one day?) on May 14th, 1948 it was a HUGE prophetic event that sailed right on by the world at large. This indicates that those watching these events taking place that “summer” is NIGH at hand, even at the door. Pay close attention to the word “summer”.

So if we go further into this parable that the world paid no attention to, we find Jesus telling us that His return (which means both the rapture, and seven years later the literal return), is CLOSE even at THE DOOR: The word door is interesting:


θύρα – thura – thoo’-rah

Apparently, a primary word (compare “door”); a portal or entrance (the opening or the closure, literally or figuratively): – door, gate.

Where have we seen the word “door” in connection to the Church – actually TWO TIMES. The first time is when the believer and Jesus meet in REGENERATION:

Revelation 3:19-21

19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

Here we have a DOOR (PORTAL), where Jesus is knocking, and if one hears him knocking and OPENS THE PORTAL WITHIN HIS INNER HDDEN HEART, Jesus says He will COME INTO that believer and ties that directly to OVERCOMING.

This does not happen until and unless a believer has entered the STRAIT GATE and walked the NARROW WAY unto “life” who is JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF!!

The second place we find DOOR is here:

Revelation 4:1-3

4 After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.

And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.

So here we have THE RAPTURE DOOR, because the Church is never mentioned again after Chapters TWO and THREE, therefore one is lead to believe that everything after Chapter Three is OVER, THAT omega point for the Church Age has been reached, the AGE OF GRACE is over, there is no longer a STRAIT GATE or NARROW WAY for all of that belongs to THE CHURCH and how they are to enter into the Kingdom. It is closed, OVER.

Now it says that John will be shown what is to come “hereafter”, which means AFTER THE CHURCH IS CLOSED. But when is that? Can we know when that is, perhaps not to the exact day or hour, but within a narrow window of time, and perhaps even the4 day as all the signs confirm each other? Remember what Jesus told us:

Revelation 3:2-4

Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God.

Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.

Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy.

Here Jesus says that if we DO NOT WATCH we will not know, but if we DO WATCH, we will know! Watch what? THE SIGNS IN THE COSMOS, ISRAEL, ETC.

Now notice that in Revelation 4 we have a TRUMPET VOICE THAT SAYS “COME UP HITHER, which is the same as the rapture trumpet therefore one concludes that the Church Age is done, and we enter into a new phase, another dispensation in which BEHEADING becomes the ONLY WAY into the Kingdom of God. It is a total shift in how one enters into the Kingdom. During the Church Age, it was a spiritual/soul walk of the NARROW WAY, but in the TRIBULATION PERIOD it is a PHYSICAL WALK TO ONE’S PHYSICAL DEATH via the sword or guillotine. They are totally distinct and cannot be mixed together. This one reason why the Church has to leave Earth or be protected by the Lord just as the 70th week begins:

Now all of this is tied DIRECTLY to Israel and the 70th week of Daniel, which has everything to do with Israel’s ATONEMENT and RECONCILIATION back to God. It has NOTHING to do with the Church. Why? Because the Church was to ATONE and RECONCILE BACK TO GOD BY THE STRAIT GATE AND NARROW WAY. That was what it was for – a spiritual soul walk to the LOWEST ROOM and there wait for the BRIDEGROOM to come fetch His Bride in two phases – the first in REBIRTH, the second in the RAPTURE.

24 “Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy” .

Now back to Israel, the time clock of the Lord for Earth. ISRAEL IS THE FIRST AND MAJOR SIGN for THE CHURCH. We have seen in history the fulfillment of 69 weeks. We await only the 70th week, known as THE TIME OF JACOB’S TROUBLE, the TRIBULATION PERIOD, the native Americans call it THE TIME OF PURIFICATION and other names.

Notice how Daniel words it. It is to SEAL UP EVERYTHING IN PROPHECY. It is to anoint JESUS CHRIST AS He ascends to the throne as world ruler.  The end of the 70th week is the END OF THE AGE. THE TERMINATION POINT OF WORLD CIVILIZATION.

Israel was reborn May 14th, 1948. Jesus referred to this event directly. In Psalm 90 we find that Israel would last for 70 years (threescore and ten), and if by reason of her strength she would last for FOURSCORE YEARS, but the last ten would be a time of TROUBLE and filled with SORROW. We come forward 70 years and arrive at 2018. From 2018 to 2028 would be filled with increasing troubles, and indeed that has been the case with Hamas and all of her enemies round about. We just witnessed one of the largest attacks a few weeks ago with thousands of rockets and missiles being launched against her and this will increase to where Israel will be almost destroyed, per Isaiah 17.

So far Israel has survived but must enter the time of Jacob’s Trouble in 2021. Here is why:

If by reason of strength Israel will last 80 years. Because the 70th week is to finish up ALL PROPHECY that means we must subtract Daniel 70th week, that is 2028 minus 7 = 2021!! We have no options here; we can zero in on 2021 as the year in which the final and last week MUST BEGIN is what Psalm 90 says is true and it is a Psalm for ISRAEL.

13 “Return, O Lord, how long? and let it repent thee concerning thy servants.

12 So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.

10 The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.”

So, Israel is told that her years will be at a maximum of fourscore years (80) and then it is “over.” That tells us that a GENERATION is 80 years:

Matthew 24:33-35

33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.

34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.

35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

Inasmuch as we know that a generation is listed as 80 years in Psalm 90, now we find proof positive that Jesus said ALL THINGS WOULD BE FULFILLED. ALL THINGS. All things include Daniels 70th week as well all the way to its completion, which means THE END OF THE AGE.

1948 + 80 years = 2028

2028 minus 7 years = 2021

Remember the allusion to the Oriental WEDDING CUSTOMS? It is a SEVEN DAY AFFAIR.  Do you not find it odd that a 7-day affair lines up with a 7-day LOST WEEK OF DANIEL, where a DAY is a YEAR? More on that later.

Once again. we find that 2021 IS THE YEAR that we should enter Daniel’s 70th week. This then lays the groundwork for PART TWO, the COSMIC chalkboard of the Lord, meaning THE COSMIC SIGNS that totally PROVE that 2021 is the year to begin MAJOR TROUBLE and most likely the surprise “out of the blue” RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH.

We will show you where in 2021 is the MOST LIKELY TIME for the removal of the Church and the time of sorrows to begin. It is much closer than you think it is. And now we hear rumbles that NATO and RUSSIA may soon be in a total war right on time for the THREE WEEKS OF SORROW FOR ISRAEL that begins on June 27th, 2021.

Most people put all of this off a number of years and claim that we have to see Isaiah 17, Daniel 8, Ezekiel 38 and 39. The Bible does not say that anywhere. We could see part of those but may not. Where does one get to put all of this as a prerequisite for the RAPTURE? You cannot find this anywhere in Scripture. In point of fact, the OPPOSITE appears to be the truth and in PART TWO we will show you why, and in Part Three why the AT TRIBULATION RAPTURE IS MOST LIKELY THE CASE.

So, what happens if nothing happens? It is not likely. All the evidence points to 2021 and the cosmic signs agree. WE ARE HEADED FOR TROUBLE AND A GLOBAL WIPEOUT. The MIDNIGHT CRY is about to be heard. GET READY, and if none of this is true, well then, it is anyone’s guess for nothing could be clearer, and we must go with the evidence as God shows us. Everything is in place.

There has been a great acceleration in both what is happening to Israel and the cosmic signs in the heavens. They have become closer and closer together in a rapid machine gun fire and so it is on Earth as the nations are restless and angry. It is as if the Earth and especially Israel are in a TIME OF TRAVAIL as a woman bringing forth her child.

The world leaders are crying PEACE AND SECURITY. The United Nations cries for PEACE AND SECURITY. There is no peace and there is no security.

God has His hands stretched out upon the nations to bring about His agenda as outlined in Psalm Two. The rich men of the Earth want to cull humanity, but God is the one who will cull them as well. We are here, the Gospel has preached to all the nations of the world and now the end comes. Few are ready, few are prepared.

IF SIGNS HAVE MEANINGS, and we have been commanded to WATCH FOR THOSE SIGNS, then they must MEAN SOMETHING, or the Lord is playing tricks and He is NOT going to play tricks with HIS BRIDE but may well for the world at large. THESE ARE HARD SAYINGS, WHO CAN ABIDE BY THEM?

Next we will show you all the cosmic signs and how they have accelerated right up to the SIGN OF JONAH, and then suddenly stop. Why is that? What if we are wrong? Back to the drawing boards, back to watching. The odds we are wrong? the SIGNS say 99% that the end is here. Never have we had such proof as what we now have. Watch for SERIOUS TROUBLE AFTER JUNE 27th!!
